German Council Reprimands Vaccine Makers for Censorship Attempts Revealed in Twitter FilesTwitter Files revealed that Pfizer partner BioNTech attempted to censor activists fighting for low-cost generic vaccines.
Flaherty sought to control who could have a Facebook account, determine what they could post, and influence what they see. He didn’t own the company or work for Mark Zuckerberg – he used the threat of government retribution to impose censorship.It is “axiomatic” under American law that the state cannot “induce, encourage, or promote” private companies to pursue unconstitutional aims. “Under the First Amendment there is no such thing as a false idea,” the Supreme Court held in Gertz v. Welch. “However pernicious an opinion may seem, we depend for its correction not on the conscience of judges and juries, but on the competition of other ideas.” There is no misinformation carve-out to the First Amendment or Pandemic exception to Constitutional Law. Yet Flaherty spearheaded the Biden Administration’s assault on free speech, and he now appears unremorseful for his role in the censorship apparatus.
I frequently use wifi on my phone and there's a lot of sites that are blocked.
AUGUST 10, 2023 | NIAMH UÍ BHRIAIN | WORLD NEWS‘DISTRESSING’ VIDEO OF POLICE ARRESTING GIRL WITH AUTISM OVER ‘HOMOPHOBIC’ REMARK GOES VIRAL"SHE'S AUTISTIC" "I DON'T CARE"A ‘deeply distressing’ video of police arresting a girl with autism in her home after accusing her of using a “homophobic” remark, has gone viral, racking up millions of views on social media and causing commentators to question the authorities’ use of ‘hate-speech’ laws.The girl’s mother shared in a social media post that her daughter (who appears to be a teenager) was being brought home by police in Leeds when the girl “made a comment in her own house” which led to the police deciding to arrest her for “homophobic remarks”.
To clarify, I presume you mean that at establishments where you use wifi to connect to a local router, that establishment's router blocks certain websites. That is, using the Best Buy free wifi may have the bitchute site blocked.
Facebook’s parent company Meta has banned ads across its social media apps for Mark Levin’s new book before it has even gone on sale.Levin, a Fox News host and New York Times bestselling author, warned his supporters that his new anti-Democrat book is already being censored, even though it won’t be released for over a month.His new book, “The Democrat Party Hates America,” will be available on September 19, 2023.Levin took to Twitter/X to reveal that advertising for his book has been blocked by Meta on Facebook and Instagram.He said the Big Tech giant blocked the ads “because of the title.”
So, the Germans are putting me on trial for my thoughtcrimes, and, apparently, I’ve already been found guilty and sentenced. Bear with me and I’ll try to explain.The Berlin District Court has issued a so-called “penalty order” or “order of punishment,” in which I am advised that I am now officially a criminal in Germany, for tweeting two Tweets. ...Here are the two Tweets that constitute my “hate crimes.”The one on the left reads, “The masks are ideological-conformity symbols. That is all they are. That is all they have ever been. Stop acting like they have ever been anything else, or get used to wearing them.” The one on the right is a quote by Karl Lauterbach, the Minister of Health of Germany. It reads “The masks always send out a signal.”
Just like that, without any public announcements or black helicopters flying in formation to herald the change, America had its own ministry of truth.Together they operated an industrial-scale censorship machine in which the government and NGOs sent tickets to the tech companies that flagged objectionable content they wanted scrubbed. That structure allowed the DHS to outsource its work to the Election Integrity Project (EIP), a consortium of four groups: the Stanford Internet Observatory; private anti-disinformation company Graphika (which had formerly been employed by the Defense Department against groups like ISIS in the war on terror); Washington University’s Center for an Informed Public; and the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Research Lab. Founded in 2020 in partnership with the DHS, the EIP served as the government’s “deputized domestic disinformation flagger,” according to congressional testimony from journalist Michael Shellenberger, who notes that the EIP claims it classified more than 20 million unique “misinformation incidents” between Aug. 15 and Dec. 12, 2020. As EIP head Alex Stamos explained, this was a work-around for the problem that the government “lacked both kinda the funding and the legal authorizations.”Looking at the censorship figures that the DHS’s own partners reported for the 2020 election cycle in their internal audits, the Foundation for Freedom Online summarized the scope of the censorship campaign in seven bullet points:22 million tweets labeled “misinformation” on Twitter;859 million tweets collected in databases for “misinformation” analysis;120 analysts monitoring social media “misinformation” in up to 20-hour shifts;15 tech platforms monitored for “misinformation,” often in real-time;<1 hour average response time between government partners and tech platforms;Dozens of “misinformation narratives” targeted for platform-wide throttling; andHundreds of millions of individual Facebook posts, YouTube videos, TikToks, and tweets impacted due to “misinformation” Terms of Service policy changes, an effort DHS partners openly plotted and bragged that tech companies would never have done without DHS partner insistence and “huge regulatory pressure” from government.
Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Agrees the Biden Administration Violated the First Amendment – Easily Affirms Lower Court Order, and Baits Biden DOJ to Appeal to Supreme CourtSeptember 9, 2023This is one of those judicial court rulings that needs to be bookmarked because the judicial panel outlines exactly what the Biden administration and Govt officials did, in their blatant violations of the First Amendment. [SEE pdf HERE]The Fifth Circuit court of appeals outlines how the Biden administration totally violated the first amendment, by forcing and coercing social media and other organizations to ban speech, block opinion and censor information they determined was against their interests. Any time a progressive democrat claims their leadership would not destroy this nation, simply put the appellate court ruling back in front of their face and walk away. ...The panel decision modified the injunction against federal officials to now read:Defendants, and their employees and agents, shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly, to coerce or significantly encourage social-media companies to remove, delete, suppress, or reduce, including through altering their algorithms, posted social-media content containing protected free speech. That includes, but is not limited to, compelling the platforms to act, such as by intimating that some form of punishment will follow a failure to comply with any request, or supervising, directing, or otherwise meaningfully controlling the social-media companies’ decision-making processes.

Viral RFK Jr. Video Gets Deleted By “X”: Here’s What They Didn’t Want You to SeeThe Pfizer clinical trials were a disaster. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. explains why.Now, Twitter (“X”) is taking further action by making undesirable videos unplayable.What type of videos in particular? Well, mine…... So, what did Robert Kennedy Jr. say that crossed the line?The video was a clip of RFK Jr. breaking down the Pfizer clinical trials with podcast host Brian Rose. And what he exposed, according to Pfizer’s own data, was that people who received Pfizer’s COVID vaccine showed a 23.5% GREATER likelihood of dying than the placebo group after six months.
The Borg has made a mistake.Yesterday, just shy of a week after the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction barring the White House, the FBI, the Surgeon General, and four other government entities from flagging content to social media companies, attorneys for the Biden administration applied to the high court to stay the ruling. Missouri v. Biden is headed to the Supreme Court.It wasn’t a certainty they’d do this. The 5th Circuit after all vacated each of district court Judge Terry Doughty’s ten orders on social media contacts but one, and “tailored” the remaining 6th provision to a single paragraph:Defendants, and their employees and agents, shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly, to coerce or significantly encourage social-media companies to remove, delete, suppress, or reduce, including through altering their algorithms, posted social-media content containing protected free speech. That includes, but is not limited to, compelling the platforms to act, such as by intimating that some form of punishment will follow a failure to comply with any request, or supervising, directing, or otherwise meaningfully controlling the social-media companies’ decision-making processes.After the 5th Circuit ruling, in other words, only government action against protected free speech remained barred by this injunction. The Biden administration just told the world “grave and irreparable harm” would result from such limitations.
This Canadian high school is removing books published before 2008 in effort to be more "inclusive"Yes, this school really dumped all of the books published before 2008 from their library…In the name of inclusion.A Canadian public high school has sparked outrage for removing all books published before 2008 in a so-called push to make its library more inclusive for students.Erindale Secondary School in Mississauga, Ontario culled roughly 50% of its library books — including the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series — under a new "equity-based book weeding" directive implemented by the Peel District School Board earlier this year, CBC News reported…The school's controversial move was made after the Minister of Education issued a wider directive to school boards earlier this year in a bid to ensure library books were more inclusive."Equity-based book burning" would be more like it. And here I thought conservatives were supposed to be the ones "burning books" these days with their removal of pornography from school bookshelves.
Meet Ukrainian Military's American SpokesmanTransgendered Sarah Ashton-Cirillo advocates free speech and killing journalists.As our world gets weirder by the second, it has become ever harder to know if what we are presented with is real. Every time someone sends a report or video that is purportedly a representation of factual reality, I try to evaluate if it’s indeed real or if it’s propaganda, black propaganda, satire, or the creation of a mentally ill person.This morning I saw a story about an American transgendered woman named Sarah Ashton-Cirillo who claims to be a soldier and an official spokesman of the Ukrainian Territorial Defense Forces. She is in the news because of a publicized spat she is having with Senator JD Vance of Ohio who has made an inquiry to determine is Sarah Ashton-Cirillo really is an official English language spokesman for the Ukrainian TDF. Spoiler Alert: She really is.Vance became aware of Ashton-Cirillo after he saw a video of the spokesman announcing that journalists who disseminate Russian propaganda will be hunted down and killed. ...In response to Senator Vance’s query, Ashton-Cirillo posted yet another video in which she proclaims her support of the First Amendment, but hastens to add that reporting Russian propaganda is not protected by the First Amendment.Who adjudicates what is Russian propaganda and what is merely critical reporting of the Ukrainian government and its U.S. government supporters?The question touches on something I have frequently written about on this Substack—namely, the strange rise of ORTHODOXY in recent years. There are, we are told, certain major issues in which the ORTHODOX—that is, official U.S. government and MSM representations—cannot be questioned or criticized. Those who do question these orthodoxies will be censored, censured, or—if Ashton-Cirillo has her way—hunted down and killed.The top four orthodoxies are what I call the Holy Quadripartitus of Piffle. They are:1). COVID-19 vaccines are saving mankind. Anyone who questions the safety and efficacy of the vaccines is guilty of heresy.2). The U.S. proxy war in Ukraine is a sacred mission and no negotiated settlement with Russia shall be countenanced. Anyone who criticizes the Ukrainian and U.S. governments, and any attempt to understand the war from the Russian point of view, is guilty of heresy.3). Human induced climate change will soon destroy the earth if trillions aren’t spent to overhaul our entire energy policy. Anyone who questions this proposition is guilty of heresy.4). The concept of biological sex is a mere “construct.” Skilled surgeons and endocrinologists can transform a boy into a girl or vice versa. Anyone who questions this assertion is guilty of heresy.I reject the Holy Quadripartitus of Piffle as fanatical, obscurantist, mentally ill nonsense.
Thomas P Seager, PhD@seagertpThe distinction between silencing the speaker or deafening the listener is irrelevant.It's still censorship.
