I hate to admit it, but Alex Jones called it.
Now, don’t get me wrong: I am in no way endorsing every crackpot theory that the controversial pundit has laid out over the course of his career. In fact, I probably ignore 90% of what Jones says, but when it comes to the War on Information, he seems as prescient and alert as ever. Jones even named him entire media company InfoWars, as if to prove the point.
You see, Jones is on the receiving end of a blackballing the likes of which America never believed that they would see. It’s a woeful misinterpretation of the First Amendment that got us here, with megalithic online corporations acting as the gatekeepers of world of digital information. In this struggle, Jones has been banned from nearly every major platform in existence, including PayPal.
Now, as if to prove the point that Jones himself was making about the guardians of knowledge and the virtual book-burning of the liberal left, Wikipedia will no longer accept InfoWars or Breitbart as sources of information.

Wikipedia editors voted to ban Breitbart as a source of fact in it articles. The consensus, reached late last month, agreed that the outlet “should not be used, ever, as a reference for facts, due to its unreliability.” Wikipedia editors also decided that InfoWars is a “conspiracy theorist and fake news website,” and that the “use of InfoWars as a reference should be generally prohibited.
Breitbart, a far-right conservative media website, has come under scrutiny—such as when it vehemently supported Alabama politician and alleged pedophile Roy Moore, when it shilled for scam cryptocurrencies through its newsletter, or when it fueled racist narratives about black NFL players. Wikipedians decided that because fact checkers have found much of Breitbart’s coverage to be “misleading, false or both,” they won’t abide it as a source of fact anymore.
This is absolutely a tactic that has been used repeatedly by fascist regimes in the past, and should be alarming to any American worth their weight in freedom.
While Infowars is often on the fringes of the media landscape, Breitbart has become the de facto voice for patriotic Americans who turn away from the mainstream, corporately controlled media. By eliminating the avenues from which these ideologies can spread, Wikipedia is doing nothing less than jeopardizing the very future of liberty in our nation.
Desparate Expansion of NYC Trump Probe Targets Ex-Bodyguard
The longer this thing goes on, the harder these prosecutors are having to work to find any dirt on The Don.
In New York City, there are powerful people on the hunt for something, anything, that they could use to take down Donald Trump, and this desperate endeavor has turned ever wilder as it goes on. Having Trump’s tax returns and access to his former “fixer” Michael Cohen is not enough for these allegedly competent prosecutors, however, and they are now going to take a look at folks like Trump’s ex-bodyguard. New York prosecutors investigating former President Donald Trump’s business have advised Trump’s former bodyguard and current chief operating officer, Matthew Calamari, and his son that they should get their own lawyers, not use the Trump Organization’s attorneys, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Prosecutors are reportedly looking into whether the Calamaris have illegally avoided paying taxes on benefits provided by the Trump Organization, including housing and cars. New York City District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has been investigating the Trump Organization for a few years, focused most recently on whether the company manipulates the value of its properties to get loans and lower its taxes. Vance’s prosecutors are similarly investigating, and widely believed to be trying to gain the cooperation of, Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, but they don’t appear to have had much luck yet. Now it appears their interest in these benefits extends beyond Weisselberg, the Journal reports, noting that neither Calamari or Weisselberg have been accused of wrongdoing. The Calamaris have taken the prosecutors’ advice and hired Nicholas Gravante Jr., who has represented former AIG head Maurice “Hank” Greenberg and Hunter Biden, among other prominent clients, the Journal reports. The prosecutors who are targeting the Trump organization have been at it for years already, and, after having garnered the aforementioned materials, have still not pressed any charges. One could imagine that,…
Activists Cleared from Lafayette Square Shut Down by Federal Judge
The Trump administration will not be help liable for the incident.
For a good, long time, the mainstream media was insisting that then-President Donald Trump was responsible for the clearing of Black Lives Matter protesters from Lafayette Square last year, in an incident that made international headlines. The moment was a fraught one, with demonstrators being forcibly removed from the area by the use of force and tear gas. It certainly didn’t appear to be a shining moment for free speech, and the rabid liberal media worked their tails off trying to pin the whole thing on Trump. A year later, it would be revealed during the Biden administration that the clearing of the park had nothing to do with Donald Trump, and was being conducted for other, premeditated purposes altogether. Now, activists who were looking to take legal action against the Trump administration are getting shut down in court. A federal judge has dismissed a majority of the claims filed by activists and civil liberties groups who accused the Trump administration of violating the civil rights of protesters who were forcefully removed by police using chemical agents from a park near the White House before then-President Donald Trump walked to a nearby church to take a photo. U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich said Monday the claims in the suit, which alleged that Trump and then-Attorney General William Barr had conspired to violate the rights of protesters last June, were speculative and it was premature for the court to conclude whether the actions of law enforcement officers were justified. Friedrich dismissed the claims against Barr and other federal officials, including the acting U.S. Park Police chief, Gregory Monahan, finding there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove there was any agreement or plan to violate the rights of the protesters. The judge also said the law gives them immunity in civil litigation. Legal…
