EXPOSING THE CENSORSHIP WAR

EMERGENCY: BIG TECH’S PLOT TO KILL FREE SPEECH REVEALED

Online digital rights are in turmoil and we must act now


The biggest and yet least talked about issue facing conservatives and Trump supporters heading into the mid-terms and the 2020 presidential elections is social media censorship and big tech’s efforts to rig elections by manipulating their algorithms.

In association with Mike Adams, Infowars has published a detailed master compendium on censorship that will serve as a roadmap for lawmakers and for President Trump as we begin the fight to return the battleground of ideas to a level playing field.

The original document is embedded below and should be read in full. What follows below is a brief summary of the major talking points of this document.

THE CENSORSHIP MASTER PLAN DECODED

Slaves to the algorithm

Algorithms are the most pernicious form of censorship because the target cannot conclusively prove they are being censored yet experience the impact of censorship anyway.

As Robert Epstein has documented, “Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated.”

Epstein asserts that Google has the power to flip over 25% of elections worldwide and that “The search giant’s algorithms are manipulating people every minute of every day.”

By favoring certain search results over others, Epstein and his team discovered that Google could, “boost the proportion of people who favored any candidate by between 37 and 63 percent after just one search session.”

“More alarmingly, we also demonstrated this shift with real voters during an actual electoral campaign—in an experiment conducted with more than 2,000 eligible, undecided voters throughout India during the 2014 Lok Sabha election there—the largest democratic election in history, with more than 800 million eligible voters and 480 million votes ultimately cast. Even here, with real voters who were highly familiar with the candidates and who were being bombarded with campaign rhetoric every day, we showed that search rankings could boost the proportion of people favoring any candidate by more than 20 percent—more than 60 percent in some demographic groups.”

In other words, it’s entirely possible that Google determined the winner of the largest democratic election in history and could do so over and over again.

During its back and forth conversation with CNN, Facebook admitted that it artificially demotes Infowars content to censor our reach.

“We work hard to find the right balance between encouraging free expression and promoting a safe and authentic community, and we believe that down-ranking inauthentic content strikes that balance,” said Facebook spokeswoman Lauren Svensson. “In other words, we allow people to post it as a form of expression, but we’re not going to show it at the top of News Feed.”

As Mike Adams’ master report documents, Facebook has already deplatformed countless prominent natural health and conservative political channels.

Google intensifies its crackdown

Over the course of the last year, we have also noticed a clear change in Google’s search results in which mainstream media articles that denigrate Infowars appear well above Infowars in search results, even when one specifically searches for an exact headline from Infowars.

Google is already directing teams of employees to flag content that is deemed “upsetting” or “offensive” and bury such websites in order to “improve the quality of its search results”.

“The new “upsetting-offensive” flag instructs quality raters to “flag to all web results that contain upsetting or offensive content from the perspective of users in your locale, even if the result satisfies the user intent,” according to the Associated Press.

One of the examples cited that would get flagged is a website that criticizes the religion of Islam.

Google-owned YouTube has also deliberately ranked legacy media-produced videos above independently produced videos about major news events, even when the independently produced videos are more popular.

As we reported in February, Robert Thompson, CEO of News Corp., the publishing arm of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, brazenly admitted that big corporations are pushing for the likes of Google and Facebook to censor alternative media outlets so that News Corp-owned publications can make more money.

Thompson complained that “misinformation” is being promoted at the expense of media properties such as the Wall Street Journal (which just happens to be owned by News Corp).

“The potential returns for our journalism would be far higher in a less chaotic, less debased digital environment,” he asserted, acknowledging the financial incentive behind censorship.

The tyranny of partisan “fact checkers”

Google has also hired so-called “fact checkers” from the Southern Poverty Law Center to police content on YouTube. The SPLC is a hyper-partisan left-wing organization whose business model revolves almost exclusively around fanning the flames of hysteria about “hate speech” and defaming good people as extremists.

As we have previously documented, another fact checker being used by Google, Snopes.com, presents itself as a non-partisan outfit, yet has proven itself to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party and the left on numerous occasions.

Snopes previously tried to “debunk” claims that the New York Times had colluded with Clinton’s campaign by warning them in advance about potentially negative stories that were about to be published, despite Wikileaks emails proving this to be true on two separate occasions.

As the Daily Caller reported, Kim Lacapria, Snopes’ main political “fact checker,” describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She has previously equated Tea Party conservatives with jihadists.

In December 2016, an investigative report revealed how Snopes was accused of using company money to pay for prostitutes.

Snopes’ obvious far-left bias is genuinely disconcerting given that it is being used by the likes of Google and Facebook as a supposedly independent “fact checker” to combat “fake news” online.

As Mike Adams explains, “What Robert Mueller accused the Russians of doing—interfering with U.S. elections—is actually being carried out right now by tech giants, the establishment media and third-party fact-checkers.”

CNN lobbies social media giants to shut down Infowars

Not content with seeing Infowars be disabled in terms of being downranked by algorithms, CNN, along with a media echo chamber that amplifies their narratives, has openly lobbied both Google-owned YouTube and Facebook to shut down Infowars.

Earlier this year, CNN repeatedly contacted YouTube in an attempt to have our channel closed down because we challenged the gun control narrative that emerged after the Parkland school shooting.

At one point, Infowars was one strike away from losing its YouTube presence and being terminated on the platform forever.

After failing to trigger the deletion of our YouTube channel, CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy re-appeared last week, this time attempting to lobby Facebook to shut down Infowars under the excuse of combating “fake news”.

Darcy’s zeal to silence Infowars was so persistent that he eventually forced Facebook to back themselves into a corner and admit that they supported free speech, which is quite the commitment for a company that has been so aggressive in policing the content on its platform.

The fact that an international media brand with vast resources like CNN would direct its journalists to launch a campaign to shut down a smaller competitor is not only chilling, it smacks of total desperation.

In Russia or Turkey, the government shuts down media outlets. In the United States, CNN apparently thinks that’s its role.

The fallacy of fake news

While the legacy media routinely publishes misleading, harmful and downright duplicitous news with wanton abandon, the “fake news” narrative was amplified after the election as a means of discrediting and de-legitimizing the presidency of Donald Trump and populist movements across Europe.

Much like the term “post-truth world,” fake news is a contrived moral panic created by elites to deflect from the fact they are increasingly unable to manufacture consent.

A major Stanford University study found that “even the most widely circulated fake news stories were seen by only a small fraction of Americans,” and that the most widely believed fake news stories were those that benefited Hillary Clinton.

Fake news had virtually no impact on the election, but the establishment media weaponized the term as part of an agenda to silence and censor voices of dissent, including media platforms, that had opposed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

It is completely hilarious to realize that the legacy media created the contrived “fake news” hysteria but thanks to Trump and their own malicious agenda, it just ended up defining them. According to an April poll by Monmouth University Polling Institute, 77 per cent of Americans believe that the traditional media is guilty of fake news.

In a 2017 CNN opinion piece written by Hossein Derakhshan and Claire Wardle, who are affiliated with the globalist Council of Europe, the authors argued that the term “fake news” had “become meaningless” and lost its power because politicians (primarily Donald Trump) hijacked it as a way to “undermine” the media establishment.

The authors decried the fact that many people now believe the mainstream media peddles “fabricated stories” and that information monopolies are being challenged by the ability for “anyone in the world” to have a platform.

As Sharyl Attkisson documents in her presentation below, the attempt to focus America’s attention on the idea of “fake news” was itself a propaganda effort.

Fake news is a baseless conspiracy theory invented by elites as an excuse to explain why their arguments no longer resonate with a majority of people.

The master document created by Mike Adams explains some of the solutions to these problems – real steps that can be implemented very quickly to turn the tide and return the Internet and social media to a level playing field.

Solutions

They include;

1) Declaring the dominant online platforms to be “public commons” communication infrastructure to protect free speech.

2) Outlawing the censoring of content based on “political views” or “unpopular views”.

3) Requiring social media platforms to make transparent all their algorithms and requiring platforms to disclose down-ranking content policies

4) Requiring complete transparency on all reasoning for shadow bans, content bans and account bans.

All of these measures and more could be introduced in a special Online Digital Rights bill that could be passed and signed into law by President Trump.

“Google, Facebook, YouTube, CNN and even the ACLU are all conspiring to defraud the United States of America by silencing conservative voices, en masse, in the run up to a critical election that may decide the fate of our nation,” writes Adams.

We are running out of time. The mid-term elections are just months away. Every day that goes by without these fundamental problems being addressed, the state of online free speech becomes ever more precarious.

We must act now before it’s too late.

PROPAGANDA PRESSTITUTES

GOOGLE LOOKING TO CONTROL LOCAL NEWSPAPERS

Google’s SJW employees to have influence over your local news
Kit Daniels | Infowars.com – JANUARY 26, 2018

Google is developing an app to feed news (and whatever propaganda it’s pushing) at no cost to local newspapers, effectively granting the tech giant control over local news.

The news gathering app, called Bulletin, would collect news from neighborhood sources and everyday citizens which is then shared with local news outlets for free under Creative Commons.

Why it’s dangerous: Google’s modus operandi has always revolved around control, and according to Axios, the stories would be subject to “Google’s news and content standards.”

That means Google would effectively act as Editor-in-Chief of local newspapers by deciding what stories are gold and what stories to bury on the app.

In short, Google’s SJW employees will have influence over your neighborhood news.

Speculative, but still scary: It’s well-known that smartphone cameras have revolutionized the spread of viral news and information. Just think of Walter Scott shooting in South Carolina, which was caught by cell phone.

It’s also well-known that “augmented reality,” such as the Pokémon GO game, is the latest tech trend; tech companies love it because it puts smartphone cameras in places that would otherwise never be filmed.

So isn’t it theoretically possible that the app could eventually offer “augmented reality” video capture that would encourage users to “gather news” by filming locations inaccessible to Google Street View cars?

Is Bulletin the Google version of Pokémon GO, which was funded by the CIA’s venture capital firm In-Q-Tel?

Panic Hits Hollywood and Media Elite: Which Harasser Will Be Outed Next?

Hollywood Reporter 6:00 AM PDT 11/1/2017 by Mary Pilon Marisa Guthrie

Near-daily disclosures of misconduct from N.Y. and L.A. men — as outlined in a since-deleted spreadsheet of “Shitty Media Men” — have blanketed the landscape with a palpable unease: “We all wake up thinking, ‘Who’s next?'”

Dayna Evans, a freelance writer in Brooklyn, was working at her apartment on Oct. 11 when she received a link to a Google spreadsheet curiously titled “Shitty Media Men.”

“When I first got it, there were 12 or so names on it, and you could see people editing it,” says Evans. “I still remember even then thinking how few men there were on it considering how many of them have power.” She left her computer for a few hours, and when she returned, the number had ballooned to more than 50 (a version obtained by The Hollywood Reporter includes 72 names), covering an array of outlets, including The New YorkerThe New RepublicThe New York TimesHarper’sMother JonesBuzzFeed and New York.

The war on truth has reached a fever pitch as Google has made it their mission to annihilate the independent media. The ‘New Media’ lead by the likes of Infowars, Breitbart, Natural News and many other great independent sites will have an uphill battle when it comes to getting their content in front of readers. Google has announced they will be doubling down on their ‘Orwellian’ practice of making stories disappear from their monopolistic search engine. Outlined in their Gestapo like 160-page handbook, Google describes exactly how they plan to suppress any information they deem unfit for readers. Highlighted at the bottom of page 108 Google states:

● Pages that directly contradict well established
scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or
medical information, unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.

● Pages that directly contradict well-established
historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories), unless
the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.

These two guidelines provided by Google should set off alarm bells to anyone who has a thirst for knowledge or anyone that has the audacity to examine both sides of a topic. Imagine only being able to see and hear the corporate narrative on such important issues like vaccines, 9/11, holistic health, the Kennedy assassination, climate change, banking alternatives, and many other important matters. And that is only scratching the surface.

This information from Google’s handbook was first uncovered by Melissa Dykes at Truth Stream Media who made a great video that eloquently breaks down the importance of this complex issue.  I highly recommend everyone watch it and more importantly support their work.

As bad as this news sounds there is a bright side. We have solutions people; we just have to break the habit of being slaves to the Google regime. First, we can stop using Google altogether and start using some great alternatives out there like Good GopherDuckDuckGoYandexSearx.me and Qwant.com The second and most important thing we can do is go old school and start bookmarking sites again (something I have been doing for years). This will cut out the middle man (Google) and enable you to see all the great information from thousands of independent journalists that Google is trying to suppress.

Below you will find a comprehensive list of great sites broken down by category that do an excellent job in their respective field. I urge everyone to bookmark this page and make it their go to when searching for news on politics, health and prepping.

By no means is this list complete, there are thousands of great independent sites out there that I have inadvertently missed. If your favorite site is missing send me an email at govtslaves@protonmail.com and I will happily add it to the list if it’s worthy.

HOW GOOGLE SECRETLY RECORDS YOUR PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS

‘It regularly switches on microphone as you go about your day’

Android phone users beware.

Google has effectively turned millions of its users’ smartphones into listening devices that can record and store conversations not meant for Google’s ears.

Every Android phone user who has ever used Google’s Assistant, which is similar to Apple’s Siri, is unknowingly sending voice recordings to the tech giant’s servers, where they are stored “in the cloud” indefinitely.

Google tells its users it only turns on and begins recording when they utter the words, “OK Google.”

But an investigation by the Sun, a U.K.-based newspaper, has found that the virtual assistant is “a little hard of hearing.”

In some cases, just responding “OK” during a private conversation with a friend prompted Google to access the phone speaker and record around 20 seconds of audio.

“It regularly switches on the microphone as you go about your day-to-day activities, none the wiser,” the Sun reports.

Once Google is done recording, it uploads the audio files to its massive data centers.

It Can’t Happen Here – Just Go Back to Sleep

The real goal of the intolerant Left is the outright extermination of conservative White culture (and elimination of the First Amendment)

(Natural News) It’s now perfectly clear that the real goal of the intolerant Left is the complete extermination of conservative White culture in America and the elimination of First Amendment rights for anyone who isn’t a Leftist.

This is now abundantly clear after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, where radical left-wing protesters (Antifa) clashed with angry right-wing protesters, leading to 3 deaths and dozens of injuries. According to Leftists everywhere, young, white conservatives have no right to voice their grievances at all… even as they are demeaned, censored, slandered and vilified by the establishment Left.

Had those protesters been Black Lives Matters proponents instead of “Unite the Right” members, their right to protest would have been celebrated and even rejoiced by the mainstream media and the political establishment. According to the Left-wing status quo in America today, African-Americans, Muslims, women and LGBTQ community members all have the right to violently protest against anyone they want, but White conservative males are uniquely forbidden to exercise their First Amendment rights without being immediately labeled KKK, neo-Nazis, racists and bigots.

Along with this, Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are now systematically silencing all conservative voices for purely political reasons, either demonetizing accounts, shadow banning their visibility or censoring them altogether. This politically-motivated effort of Left-wing internet gatekeepers to silence conservative voices only leads, of course, to increasing frustration among those being suppressed. And this frustration is now focused into public rallies which are now one of the very few places where such voices can express their grievances.

Yet when the Governor of Virginia pulls the permit for the rally just minutes before it was scheduled to begin — and then unleashes Antifa and other radical Left-wing groups onto the streets like a mob of communist “cultural revolution” enforcers — it can only end in violence. This is exactly what happened in Charlottesville, where the Virginia Governor — an extremely corrupt puppet of the Clintons — engineered precisely the kind of violence escalation that the Left wants to see on the evening news so they can claim the moral high ground while seeking the outright extermination of conservative culture in America.

What the Left refuses to acknowledge is how such oppression and censorship will only lead to an ever more powerful rising up among oppressed conservatives. It seems obvious their numbers will only grow stronger, and they will begin to stage protests and rallies in more cities, very likely ignoring permits altogether (since such permits are a hoax anyway, as they are at first “approved” and then rescinded at the very last minute).

(For the record, I denounce the KKK, racism and violence against innocent protesters. At the same time, I also denounce the censorship, bullying and attempted extermination of history now being carried out by the Left, all of which has led to this escalation in the first place. Many of you may not know this, but I am Native American and my wife is an immigrant. I’m also on the record stating that we are all African-Americans because our ancestors were all African in origin, but this scientific, anthropological point seems to be hopelessly lost on everyone.)

By censoring the speech of conservatives, Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are pushing America toward civil war
