Facebook’s Latest Move Effects The Ability to Effectively Elect Our Nation’s Next Leaders

Did they just cross the line and meddle with the upcoming US Elections?

Facebook

In one of the most blatant moves against the First Amendment witnessed in our lifetimes, Facebook removed 800 politically-charged pages and profiles.

The timing of the move was easily discernible; with less than one month left until the midterm elections, Facebook is attempting to protect the electorate from opinions and investigations that go against what we are seeing from the mainstream media.  We must remind ourselves that Facebook’s purge wasn’t entirely down political lines, (some left-leaning publishers got the boot, too), meaning that this isn’t a partisan fight.  Rather, this is a fight against the very nature of the First Amendment.

So, what makes this different than allowing Russian “bots” to infiltrate our social media?  Isn’t the omission of information precisely as disingenuous as the addition of information?  What ever happened to equality in this country?  Is my view of the political world somehow less valuable than Chris Cuomo’s?  Or Don Lemon’s?

If the nation isn’t allowed to speak their minds during this crucial time in our nation’s history, hasn’t Facebook meddled in our ability to effectively elect our next leaders?

Isn’t “independence” what this nation was found on?  Why aren’t these independent thinkers and journalists allowed to speak?

Facebook’s purge of We The People, (all of us, remember), is almost certainly an effort to sway the midterm elections…so why are we allowing it?  This is still election meddling, just not under the banner of the Kremlin.  Instead, this is informational interference that we cannot and must not capitulate to.

This purge, which appears to have been coordinated with Twitter as well, came just hours after a resignation letter from a Google engineer went viral, in which the departing employe bemoaned his concerns over the company’s stance on “free expression”.

The bottom line here is: Facebook removed all of the “Russian bots”, only to fill the vacancy left by the Kremlin’s computing power themselves.  If Facebook cares about freedom, they will stand down in this endeavor.

A word to the wise, however:  I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Save conservative media!

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

Published

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

Rudy Giuliani

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
