White House Now Working with Facebook to ‘Flag’ Certain Posts

This is a slippery slope, folks.

One of the most heated debates that one can have about the First Amendment in the year 2021 has to do with social media, and where exactly the line between public space and private company exists.

You see, Facebook and others exist, and make their money, by using your content to draw eyes and clicks to their website. The behavior of those using the site is catalogued and sold to advertising firms so that they can better trick you into spending your money with them, all while these platforms then place these invasively-designed advertisement right next to the content that you produce.

So, is your content in the “public space”, where the First Amendment is expressly inalienable, or is it under the control of a private company who works outside of governmental or public space?

This debate is about to get supercharged, as the White House suggests that they are now involved in the process that Facebook uses to monitor content.

The Office of the Surgeon General has upped its tracking of “disinformation” related to the coronavirus pandemic on social media platforms, the press secretary said during a press briefing.

“We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation. We’re working with doctors and medical experts…who are popular with their audience with accurate information,” she said. “So, we’re helping get trusted content out there.”

Facebook says that they’ve recently deleted over 12 million posts for such an offense, specifically on the subject of the COVID-19 pandemic and the vaccines available to the public.

Democrat ‘Squad’ Member Omar Wants to Replace July 4th Celebration with Muslim Heritage Month

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar wants to cancel America’s Independence Day holiday and replace it with Muslim Appreciation Month.

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar and some of her “squad” members want to cancel America’s Independence Day holiday and replace it with an event celebrating Muslims who had nothing at all to do with the founding of the nation. “As we continue to see an uptick in anti-Muslim hate, it is important we recognize the resiliency and accomplishments of Muslim Americans with a formal resolution,” Rep. Omar recently claimed. Omar has and several of Dems have introduced a bill that would downplay Independence Day and overshadow it with an entire month of celebrating Islam. It was no mistake that Omar chose July for this anti-American campaign. Of course, July has already been designated National French American Heritage Month, so there is no room in July for celebrating a religion that has zero to do with the U.S.A. But other Democrats agree with Omar. “Muslim-Americans have played a major role in shaping our nation for centuries,” Rep. Andre Carson, exclaimed in his support for Omar’s anti-American idea. “Designating July as Muslim-American Heritage Month is a wonderful opportunity to honor the trailblazers who came before us.” This is an outright lie. Muslims have had no role in the founding of the United States. They had no role in the constitutional era, took no part in the Jacksonian era, did not factor in during the Civil War, Reconstruction, Civil Rights… in short, they did nothing to aid in the building of America. In fact, the only effect they have ever had on America has been negative. They kidnapped sailors causing one of America’s first foreign military excursions during President Jefferson’s era, and they were responsible for the largest terror attack ever perpetrated on American soil in 2001. And today, with their terror-linked advocacy group CAIR, Muslims are working to undermine the United States. Individual…

Big Apple’s De Blasio Makes NYC First In U.S. To Require Proof Of Vaccination For Dining

NYC’s worst mayor ever Bill De Blasio announced a vaccine mandate that didn’t follow science (the mayor can’t spell science).

Mayor Bill De Blasio made a big announcement on Tuesday that could be the launch of vaccine mandates in other jurisdictions all over the country. But if one mayor was going to be first, why not the Socialist De Blasio. De Blasio vaccine mandate The Democrat mayor of America’s largest city announced that beginning on August 16, customers will need to provide proof of vaccination to go to restaurants, go to public entertainment, and work out at gyms. The vaccine requirement will also extend to employees of those venues. Enforcement will not begin until mid-September. Jeff Note: One result of that announcement was that my wife spent much of her day looking for my son’s vaccine card. He just moved into the city, and being a single man in his 20s, he is very dependent on eateries for nourishment (he had it all the time). The move is to force more people in NYC to “get the jab.” Customers and workers will have to show proof that they’ve had at least one dose of a vaccine under plans to pressure New Yorkers to get a shot. The policy will go into effect on August 16, but inspections and enforcement won’t begin until September 13, the week that the city’s public schools reopen for the fall. The announcement came just 24 hours after de Blasio broke from Governor Andrew Cuomo and said he would not bring back an indoor mask mandate in the city. De Blasio said Tuesday: ‘If you want to participate in our society fully, you’ve got to get vaccinated. It’s time.’ He added: ‘This is a miraculous place full of wonders, and if you’re vaccinated, all of that is gonna open up to you.’ Here is Mayor de Blasio making the announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvCE_XZ9i0U Democrat politicians and their hacks…
