Big Tech

Big Tech.jpg

Big Tech refers to a cartel of several technology firms, notably Google, Apple[1], Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft[2] and Amazon. Big Tech is playing a large role in the decline of patriotism as a value held by Americans.[3] According to Dr. Michael Rectenwald, the end goal of Big Tech companies is corporate socialism.[4] On March 10, 2022 Facebook and Instagram reversed longstanding policies and approved open support for Nazism on their platforms.[5]

The Big Tech companies used to be conservative (like back in the 80’s), but over the years became liberal.

In a New York Times op-ed entitled Tech Companies Are Destroying Democracy and the Free Press, the left-wing expert on monopoly power Matt Stoller described Facebook and Google as “global monopolies sitting astride public discourse,” and recounted how bipartisan policy and legal changes designed to whittle away antitrust protections have bestowed the two Big Tech giants with “a radical centralization of power over the flow of information.” And he warns that this unprecedented consolidation of control over our discourse is close to triggering “the collapse of journalism and democracy.”[6]

IBM is sometimes considered a Big Tech firm because of its corporate size, and Twitter not for its size but its societal impact. Twitter will likely be bought out by one of the larger firms at some point.

As of 2018, Google and Facebook controlled 60% of all digital advertising revenue, totaling over $60 billion.

Fourth Amendment violations

Only July 26, 2021. the biggest names in Big Tech announced they have partnered with the Five Eyes intelligence network, ultimately controlled by the National Security Agency]] (NSA), to

  • (1) monitor all activity in their platforms;
  • (2) identify extremist content;
  • (3) look for expressions of Domestic Violent Extremism (DVE); and then,
  • (4) put the content details into a database where the Five Eyes intelligence agencies (U.K., U.S., Australia, Canada, New Zealand) can access it.[7]

Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft are all partnering with the intelligence apparatus. According to Reuters, “The Group will use lists from intelligence-sharing group Five Eyes adding URLs and PDFs from more groups, including the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters and neo-Nazis.”[8]

Who and what is defined as “extremist content” will be determined by the Big Tech insiders themselves. This provides a gateway, another plausible deniability aspect, to cover the Intelligence Branch from any oversight. When the Intelligence Branch within government wants to conduct surveillance and monitor American citizens, they run up against the problem of Fourth Amendment protections. They get around those legal limitations by sub-contracting the intelligence gathering, the actual data-mining, and allowing outside parties (contractors) to have access to the central database.

The government cannot conduct electronic searches without a warrant; however, private individuals can search and report back as long as they have access. Big Tech will flag the content from within their platforms, and now a secondary database filled with the extracted information will be provided openly for the Intelligence Branch to exploit.

The volume of metadata captured by the NSA has always been a problem because of the filters needed to make the targeting useful. There is a lot of noise in collecting all data that makes the parts you really want to identify more difficult to capture. This new admission puts a new massive filtration system in the metadata that circumvents any privacy protections for individuals.

Previously, the Intelligence Branch worked around the constitutional and unlawful search issue by using resources that were not in the United States. A domestic U.S. agency, working on behalf of the U.S. government, cannot listen on your calls without a warrant. However, if the U.S. agency sub-contracts to say a Canadian group, or foreign ally, the privacy invasion is no longer legally restricted by U.S. law. What is being announced today is an alarming admission of a prior relationship along with open intent to define their domestic political opposition as extremists. Reuters reported:

Reuters: "A counterterrorism organization formed by some of the biggest U.S. tech companies including Facebook (FB.O) and Microsoft (MSFT.O) is significantly expanding the types of extremist content shared between firms in a key database, aiming to crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias, the group told Reuters.

Until now, the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism’s (GIFCT) database has focused on videos and images from terrorist groups on a United Nations list and so has largely consisted of content from Islamist extremist organizations such as Islamic State, al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Over the next few months, the group will add attacker manifestos – often shared by sympathizers after white supremacist violence – and other publications and links flagged by U.N. initiative Tech Against Terrorism. It will use lists from intelligence-sharing group Five Eyes, adding URLs and PDFs from more groups, including the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters and neo-Nazis.

The firms, which include Twitter (TWTR.N) and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) YouTube, share “hashes,” unique numerical representations of original pieces of content that have been removed from their services. Other platforms use these to identify the same content on their own sites in order to review or remove it....[9]

The Democracy Integrity Project

See also: Trump-Russia collusion hoax and Dark money

The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP), was a multimillion-dollar stealth organization launched in late January 2017, just days after President Donald Trump's inauguration, that provided a daily "research" bulletin known as "TDIP Research" to recognizable Washington journalists, and congressional staff members, to keep the Russia "collusion" hoax alive. Reports indicated "Social media titans including the founders of Facebook, Twitter and Google are indirectly funding the project through donations funneled through a Silicon Valley foundation." The nonprofit, 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, Fund for a Better Future (FBF),[10] donated $2,065,000 to TDIP in 2017.[11] TDIP raised some $7 million mainly from Silicon Valley tech executives and hired computer researchers, as well as FusionGPS opposition researchers and Christopher Steele, the foreign author of the discredited Steele dossier, to “prove” the rumors in the dossier.[12] In March 2019, it was reported that Paul Sperry had exposed TDIP, which is essentially a "Trump-Russia 2.0: Dossier-Tied Firm Pitching Journalists Daily news on Collusion" spreading lies and fake news to keep the "Trump-Russian collusion" false news narrative alive in main stream media reporting.[13][14] As they sought new dirt on Trump, they fed their information to fake news media outlets, leading Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, namely Sens. Mark Warner and Ron Wyden, and the FBI.

RealClearInvestigations revealed that the organization ran an elaborate media-influence operation intent on driving and shaping daily coverage of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, including the pushing of stories regarding Trump in the national main stream media, intending to tie the president or his associates to the Kremlin and Vladimir Putin. TDIP then provided the same "research" to the FBI and congressional investigators and then informs news reporters that "authorities" are investigating those items. Thus, mirroring a strategy federal authorities used to secure FISA warrants that were then used to spy on the Trump presidential campaign, in which, FISA applications would cite published news reports that were leaked to the news media to gain credibility.[13]

TDIP was founded and is run by former Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI) staffer Daniel J. Jones with help from Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta. Jones is a former FBI investigator, Clinton administration volunteer and was on the staff of California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. Jones registered TDIP as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization and claims it's mission is "non-partisan".[15] Jones and TDIP hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, author of the Steele dossier, to continue anti-Trump research and fake news leaks to mainstream media.[16] TDIP used as a backup plan to impeach President Donald Trump because the Mueller investigation report failed to expose any criminal wrongdoing.[13] Special Counsel John Durham subpoenaed Jones to testify before his grand jury hearing the case on the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax, along with computer experts and researchers recruited by Clinton attorney Michael Sussmann for the Clinton campaign's Trump-Russia hoax.[17]

2020 Presidential election interference

Big Tech censored Biden family corruption evidence in the days prior to the 2020 presidential election.[18]

In August 2020 it was reported that Facebook was planning for the possibility that President Trump or his campaign could try to challenge mail in ballot election results. The New York Times reported that staffers were already putting together contingency plans in the event Trump tries to use Facebook to dispute the vote by declaring the U.S. Postal Service lost mail-in ballots or that other groups interfered with the vote. Facebook officials, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, were holding daily meetings to discuss how to minimize the platform from being used to cast doubts on the results.

The Times noted that one plan would include a “kill switch” to shut down political ads after Election Day. The company officials believe the ads, which Facebook does not check for truthfulness, could be used to disseminate misinformation.

The newspaper said YouTube and Twitter also discussed their own plans if the postelection period becomes problematic.[19] Facebook banned political pages in an attempt to influence elections.[20] A study from the Media Research Center showed that Twitter and Facebook censored President Donald Trump and the president’s affiliated campaign accounts at least 65 times in 2019 ans 2020, while leaving Biden untouched.[21]

Section 230 status and election interference

For first time in American history social media companies took direct action against a major U.S. publisher,[22] The New York Post when it published a story on former VP Biden's collusion with Burisma executives and Ukrainian oligarchs.[23] The Post is among the top five newspapers by circulation in the United States. These actions raised serious questions about many social media platforms future Section 230 immunity status.

Big Tech giants Facebook and Twitter began interfering in the presidential election by blocking links to the article on the Biden-Burisma scandal.[24] Facebook and Twitter have many foreign stockholders.[25] Former James Comey general counsel James A. Baker (DOJ), who was complicit in the Obamagate and FISA abuse scandals, was Twitter's lead counsel during the 2020 Presidential election.[26] Twitter interfered in the election when it blacked-out evidence of former Vice President Biden's collusion with Burisma executives and Ukrainian oligarchs.[27] Yahoo News! reported:

Instead of simply asking pertinent questions, or debunking the [New York] Post’s reporting, a media blackout was initiated. A number of well-known journalists warned colleagues and their sizable social-media audiences not to share the story. By the afternoon, Twitter had joined Facebook in suppressing the article, not only barring its users from sharing it with followers, but barring them sharing it through direct messages as well. It locked the accounts of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, the Post, and many others for retweeting the story.

Twitter initially cited its “Hacked Materials Policy” and a “lack of authoritative reporting” as justification for censoring the Post, one of the most widely read papers in the nation. Though the reliability of the story is yet to be determined, Twitter has offered no evidence that any of the information was illegally obtained. No similar standard was applied when the New York Times published Trump’s tax returns, even though anyone who had legal access to them is likely to have broken the law in sharing them with the Times. Whatever the case, it’s all in the public record now.

A healthy democracy with a properly functioning and independent press would debate, investigate, and rigorously fact check new information. They wouldn’t work to squelch a story. It’s certainly not the job of giant tech companies who claim to function as neutral platforms to decide what news consumers can or can’t handle.

The most generous reading of Twitter and Facebook’s actions is that the rules are evolving, messy, and inadvertently unfair. A less generous — but more plausible — reading is that the tech giants single out specific stories damaging to progressives’ preferred presidential candidate. It will backfire.

For one thing, it further damages the reputation of Big Tech. For another, it renders the industry more susceptible to a new regulatory regime already being championed by some in Congress. Mostly, however, it just makes the story they’re trying to suppress a far bigger deal.[28]

By “fact checking” one candidate and not another, Big Tech gave an enormous in-kind campaign contribution of immeasurable monetary value to the Biden campaign. The New York Post, Gateway Pundit, and Big League Politics all were placed on Twitter's suspension hit lit the final week before election day.[29]

Polling Company survey

The Polling Company surveyed 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden.[30] Voters’ knowledge of eight news stories were tested. A huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested.

This lack of information proved crucial: One of every six Biden voters surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories. A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president. [31]

  • Burying Biden’s Bad News: The media’s censorship of Biden’s scandals had the strongest impact on this year’s election. According to our survey, more than one-third of Biden voters (35.4%) were unaware of the serious allegations brought against the Democratic nominee by Tara Reade, a former staffer who said Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s. If they had known about the allegations, 8.9% said they would have changed their vote — either switching to Trump or a 3rd party candidate, not voting for any presidential candidate, or not voting at all. By itself, this would have flipped all six of the swing states won by Biden (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), giving the President a win with 311 electoral college votes.
Even more Biden voters (45.1%) said they were unaware of the financial scandal enveloping Biden and his son, Hunter Biden (a story infamously censored by Twitter and Facebook, as well as ignored by the liberal media). According to the poll, full awareness of the Hunter Biden scandal would have led 9.4% of Biden voters to abandon the Democratic candidate, flipping all six of the swing states he won to Trump, giving the President 311 electoral votes.
The ticket’s left-wing ideology was another issue barely mentioned by the national press. A GovTrack analysis found Biden’s running mate, California Senator Kamala Harris, had the most left-wing record of any Senator in 2019 (even more than self-described socialist Bernie Sanders. The poll found that 25.3% of Biden voters said they didn’t know about Senator Harris’s left-wing ideology. If voters had the complete story, it would have led 4.1% of Biden voters to change their vote, flipping Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump. The result would have been a Trump victory, with 295 electoral college votes.
  • Hiding Trump’s Successes: The liberal media also prevented many Biden voters from learning about record-breaking positive economic news in the months leading up to the election. The five pre-election jobs reports from June 5, 2020 to October 2 showed a record 11,161,000 jobs were created in the extraordinary snapback from the pandemic recession. Yet a large number of Biden voters (39.4%) said they didn’t know about this achievement. If they had, 5.4% said they would have changed their vote; this would have swung Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump, who would have won with 295 electoral votes.
On October 29, 2020 the government reported a huge jump in economic growth — 33.1% on an annual basis, double the previous record. Yet nearly half of Biden voters (49.0%) said they had no idea about this record-breaking achievement. Armed with that information, 5.6% said they would have changed their vote, swinging Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and a total of 295 electoral votes to Trump.
The same effect was seen when it came to foreign policy. The President and his team made history by brokering peace agreements with Israel and several of her Arab neighbors — one reason Trump received three nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet 43.5% of Biden voters had no idea about these historic agreements. The information would have led five percent of overall Biden voters to change their vote, putting Trump in front in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, for a total of 295 electoral votes.
Energy independence was another Trump success. The President took action to start long-stalled pipeline projects and expand drilling offshore and in the Arctic, and it paid off with America becoming a net exporter of oil for the first time in September 2019. More than half (50.5%) of Biden voters said they did not know about this important accomplishment, either. If the information was known by all, 5.8% of Biden’s voters say they would have changed how they voted. This would have changed the outcome in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, putting Trump in front with 295 electoral college votes.
One important issue that did get a lot of coverage in 2020: the coronavirus pandemic. But what made the news every night was criticism of the President and his administration. Lost in the blistering barrage of bad news were successes such as Operation Warp Speed, which even before the election was well on track to deliver 300,000,000 doses of a safe vaccine as soon as next year.
The poll found 36.1% of Biden voters said they did not know about the administration’s key role in promoting vaccine research through Operation Warp Speed. If they had, 5.3% told us they would have abandoned Biden, flipping Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, giving the President 295 electoral votes.
  • Summary: Looking at all eight of these issues together, the poll found that a total of 17% of Biden’s voters said they would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these important stories. This would have moved every one of the swing states into Trump’s column, some by a huge margin. The President would have trounced Biden in the electoral college, 311 to 227.
In Pennsylvania, 15% of Biden voters said they would have defected. Using the reported vote totals as of noon on November 19, 2020 this would have reduced his total by 518,204 votes, flipping the state to Trump. In Michigan, the percentage who would have left Biden was 14%, deducting 392,966 from his tally and flipping that state, too.
In Georgia, 15% of Biden’s voters say they would have defected based on full information, taking 370,838 votes out of his column, and putting Trump comfortably ahead. In Arizona, 21% say they would have changed their vote, deducting 351,150 from Biden’s column and putting Trump in front there, too.
In Wisconsin, Biden would have lost 13% of his voters, taking away 211,987 from his column. In Nevada, the percentage of those who would have left Biden was 18%, or 126,627 voters. Such a shift would have put both of those states in Trump’s column, too.
In the final state polled, North Carolina, 21% of Biden’s voters say they would have changed their minds, deducting 563,703 votes from his total and significantly bolstering Trump’s margin of victory in that state.
Big Tech facilitated communist and coronavirus misinformation, fueling a global pandemic.

The WHO, headed by a Marxist fellow traveller, publicly announced that the Wuhan virus posed no threat of contagious reaction between humans.[32]]]

Coronavirusa and Communist Chinese misinformation

See also: CCP propaganda war

In the case of the Coronavirus, Big Tech used the Communist Chinese-controlled World Health Organization (WHO) as an “authority” on health related matters instead of official health guidelines from the President of the United States.[33] This is a matter of national security and public health.

Even after the Biden-Burisma scandal was exposed, Twitter continued to censor official White House policy experts. On October 18, 2020 Twitter removed a post from White House pandemic task force member Dr. Scott Atlas, accusing him of violating its policy about “misleading information.” A Twitter spokesperson confirmed that the post was removed. According to the spokesperson, the Twitter policy that Atlas allegedly violated prohibits sharing false or misleading content related to the pandemic.[34]

FEC disclosure exemptions

Political advertising regarding federal elections and candidates that is purchased for appearance on radio, television and print generally must adhere to Federal Election Commission rules requiring clear disclosure of the committee or donor paying for the advertisements. During 2011, Google and Facebook hired Marxist operative Marc Elias to help them obtain an exemption from this requirement for political advertising on their platforms. Elias argued the restrictions were not practical for his clients, with FEC commissioners ultimately voting 4-2 in favor of the exemption for Google and deadlocking 3-3 on the request regarding Facebook.[35]

Facebook continued to operate as if exempt from disclosure rules. During the 2016 U.S. general election, $100,000 worth of Russian-backed and undisclosed advertisements intended to influence voters were purchased on Facebook with another $4,700 spent by Russian sources on Google political advertisements. In October 2017, following the controversy that ensued regarding Russian interference in the 2016 elections, both Republican and Democratic Senators advocated for legislation to require Facebook and Google to adhere to the same disclosure rules as other media.

Anti-Trust and Section 230

See also: Anti-trust law

Some proposals to curb excesses of social media involve using anti-trust to break them up or for increasing regulation on the companies. These proposals are primarily offered by democrats[36] [37] [38] [39] and would benefit the deep state. There is some question as to if this approach would make censorship even worse.

Another proposal is to alter or repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which would dramatically increase the amount of litigation against these companies if they didn't put an end to these practices.[40][41] This approach is being pursued by several conservatives including Josh Hawley and Louie Gohmert.

State of California, Big Tech, and Biden campaign collusion to violate 1st Amendment rights

California’s Office of Election Cybersecurity surveilled social media users and asked Facebook, Twitter, and Google to remove or flag social media postings as "misleading" election news content. SKDKnickerbocker, a communications company linked to the Biden campaign, was also involved. The company shared its “Misinformation Daily Briefings” with the California Secretary of State office, who then passed them on to the Big Tech social media giants a conspiracy against the First Amendment rights of Americans.[42]

Information control

In 2018, the Pew Research Center found that “about two-thirds of U.S. adults (68%) get news on social media sites. One-in-five get news there often.“ The combination of Facebook, Google and Twitter controls the information received by huge numbers of Americans, Pew found. “Facebook is still far and away the site Americans most commonly use for news. About four-in-ten Americans (43%) get news on Facebook. The next most commonly used site for news is YouTube [owned by Google], with 21% getting news there, followed by Twitter at 12%.”[43]

While Twitter still falls short of Facebook in terms of number of users, a 2019 report found that “Twitter remains the leading social network among journalists at 83%.” Censoring a story from Twitter thus has disproportionate impact by hiding it from the people who determine and shape the news.[44]

In February 2021 Poland reacted to Big Tech's progressive and fascist tendencies by passing a law that would fine Big Tech platforms up $13.5 million for censoring conservative, Christian, and traditional values postings. Justice Minister Sebastian Kaleta, the author of the law noted,

"Poland spent 45 years under communism, and that experience has taught it the value of free speech and that when the country sees these disturbing new trends toward censorship, the red light goes on."[45]

Big Tech, including Google[46] and Facebook,[47] engaged in censorship of conservatives and Christians.[48][49]

In August 2018, multiple social media giants, with the support of the Left, mainstream media and Democrats,[50] colluded to ban Alex Jones's InfoWars from their sites simply because of his political views.[51] In response to public criticism of the conspiring social media platforms' actions, leftists made dismissive excuses for those companies on social media and in the liberal media, claiming that they are "free to do what they want" because of their status as privately owned companies, not realizing that the collusion of those platforms to censor and ban InfoWars and other conservative companies and individuals for their political views potentially violate antitrust laws.[52] In February 2019, removed 22 pages related to Jones and InfoWars.[53]

Facebook banned several people whose views it opposed, labeling them "dangerous," even though they did not violate the site's terms[54] – Facebook continued allowing actual left-wing hate speech to go unpunished, however.[55] Additionally, Apple News banned LifeSiteNews from its platform for "intolerance."[56] The issue of Big Tech censorship hit a fever pitch in 2019 when Facebook and Instagram banned prominent alt-lite figures Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos without reason.

In June 2020, Gavin McInnes was banned from YouTube, and Twitter banned Katie Hopkins and a popular pro-Trump meme creator known as Carpe Donktum.[57] YouTube also banned Stefan Molyneux,[58] as did Twitter in July.[59] In July 2020, anti-establishment Republicans confronted Big Tech CEOs in the halls of Congress for censorship of conservatives and of right-wing or politically incorrect voices.[60][61][62][63][64]

Hate speech

Vox Recode reported:
Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are banking on developing artificial intelligence technology to help stop the spread of hateful speech on their networks. The idea is that complex algorithms that use natural language processing will flag racist or violent speech faster and better than human beings possibly can. Doing this effectively is more urgent than ever in light of recent mass shootings and violence linked to hate speech online. But two new studies show that AI trained to identify hate speech may actually end up amplifying racial bias. In one study, researchers found that leading AI models for processing hate speech were one-and-a-half times more likely to flag tweets as offensive or hateful when they were written by African Americans, and 2.2 times more likely to flag tweets written in African American English (which is commonly spoken by black people in the US).[65]

Fact Checkers

Alan Duke – the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Facebook and TikTok’s fact-checking partner Lead Stories, refused to drop clients with ties to ByteDance, TikTok's parent company, which has been flagged by the U.S. State Department as a mouthpiece for the CCP. The founder of TikTok's parent company ByteDance has pledged to use his company to “promote socialist core values” and has “set up an expert group on content supervision” run by the CCP and includes former high-level party apparatchiks with military ties as executives.[66]

While Lead Stories claims to be unbiased, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveal that all donations from employees have gone to Democratic candidates and NeverTrump groups.

Covid pandemic

See also: CCP global pandemic

When the Chinese coronavirus first struck the United States in the Spring of 2020, Facebook banned speech or contrary scientific discussion regarding lockdown orders, business closures, and forced layoffs. YouTube took down videos, and Twitter banned all users who would dare question the mainstream media COVID narrative.

By mid October Forbes reported that "Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Google all began scooping up New York City commercial real estate after prices have plummeted due to the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic."[67]

Trump v. Twitter

In the case of Trump v. Twitter, filed in July 2021, attorneys for President Trump argued,

"[The companies have] unprecedented power over the content of public discourse to censor constitutionally protected speech with impunity, resulting in a grave threat to the freedom of expression and to democracy itself."[68]

Big Tech collusion with legacy media

The Fox News Channel seems to have colluded with Big Tech.

In January 2019, Fox News heaped praise on Microsoft's NewsGuard, a browser extension which disproportionately targets conservative and anti-establishment sources with poor ratings and then libels those sources as "fake news." Fox News, on the other hand, is considered a legitimate source of news.[69] BuzzFeed News is also considered reputable, while even stories from The Daily Wire are frequently downgraded by NewsGuard.[70] Fox News permanently banned The Daily Wire's Michael Knowles in September of that year.[1]

In the same month that the network profusely defended NewsGuard, their website asserted that a YouTube algorithm change very clearly designed to stifle independent content creators and to censor the Alternative Influence Network, as reported by Breitbart News at the time,[71] was simply intended to direct audiences away from "conspiracy theories" and "misinformation."[72] According to Bloomberg Businessweek, by July 2020, Fox News' YouTube channel gained tens of millions of views while even the channels of massive leftist corporate networks CNN and MSNBC declined in views.[73] In June 2020, Gavin McInnes and Stefan Molyneux were permanently banned from YouTube, which Fox News refrained from covering.

Big Tech companies

Alphabet Inc. is the parent company of Google, which also owns YouTube, Android, The Groundwork and dozens of other companies. The Groundwork in 2015 boasted it could influence the vote in any democratic election anywhere in the world as much as 25%,[74] highlighting the Search engine manipulation effect. In an article titled How Google Could Rig the 2016 Election in August 2015 Politico warned Google "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... In the United States, half of our presidential elections have been won by margins under 7.6 percent".[75]

Dr. Robert Epstein of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology testified before Congress in 2019 that Google bias and meddling had shifted "between 2.6 million and up to 10.4 million votes" to Hillary Clinton.[76] Epstein stated in his testimony before the Judiciary Senate Committee that his research indicated that Google had been manipulating national elections as early as 2015, and has even insinuated that they had also manipulated the results of the 2018 midterm elections.[77][78]

In June 2019, Project Veritas released an undercover video in which a Google executive admitted that the company was working, through its policies and products, to prevent "the next Trump situation."[79] The video had over one million views in the first 24 hours (available in External link section, below). Google subsequently moved to censor the video from its platforms.[80]

Attempt to overthrow Syrian government

Google collaborated with the Obama regime in the fail attempt at regime change in Syria. Jared Cohen, head of Google Jigsaw (formerly Google Ideas) emailed the State Dept.:

"Please keep close hold, but my team is planning to launch a tool on Sunday that will publicly track and map the defections in Syria and which parts of the government they are coming from. Our logic behind this is that while many people are tracking the atrocities, nobody is visually representing and mapping the defections, which we believe are important in encouraging more to defect and giving confidence to the opposition. Given how hard it is to get information into Syria right now, we are partnering with Al-Jazeera who will take primary ownership over the tool we have built, track the data, verify it, and broadcast it back into Syria. I've attached a few visuals that show what the tool will look like. Please keep this very close hold and let me know if there is anything eke you think we need to account for or think about before we launch. We believe this can have an important.[81]

January 6 Capital protests

See also: 2021 Capitol protests

Google is a known NSA subcontractor. after the January 6, 2021 Capitol protests, the FBI used Google location data to track attendants with nothing more than a valid Gmail address and smartphone login. According to Forbes magazine:

"The police were then able to obtain an Instagram registration email, which turned out to be a Gmail address. With that in hand, investigators ordered Google to provide any location data they had on that Gmail user, which the tech giant duly provided after it identified a linked smartphone.'[82]

The Off Guardian remarked it is a "stark reminder that carrying a tracking device with a Google login, even with the SIM card removed, can mean the difference between freedom and an orange jumpsuit in the Great Reset era."[83]


Youtube manipulation of likes/dislikes on the Biden White House channel.[84]
See also: YouTube

Controversy arose in 2006 in conservative circles after people such as Michelle Malkin claimed that YouTube censored conservative content.[85] This led the creation of a pair of video-sharing websites: QubeTV, an alternative site whose origins are reminiscent of the creation of Conservapedia by people who believed Wikipedia® to be liberal, and the Christian alternative, GodTube, which has been renamed "Tangle".[86]

In 2020 YouTube was listed as one of numerous leftist-controlled companies that have gone "woke" and supports the criminal axtivities of Antifa and the Black Lives Matter organization in the wake of the 2020 leftist riots.[87]

In 2021, YouTube censored their own most popular independent content creator PewDiePie by removing one of his videos.[88]

As White House videos of the Biden regime continued to show dislikes outnumbering likes by a factor of 6 and 8, Youtube eliminated the Dislike feature.[89] A website that tracks that tracks the YouTube page of the Biden White House confirmed that YouTube suppressed the dislikes on every single one of Joe Biden White House video.

In October 2021 Youtube made history when it banned for the first time a song, Let's Go Brandon, as "medical misinformation."[91]

Former Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli was accused of sexual assault on social media by tennis star Peng Shuai in 2021. Peng was disappeared shortly thereafter.[92] YouTube de-monetized a video entitled Chinese Star VANISHES After Rape Accusation posted on the Breaking Points channel.[93]

Youtube has deemed "inappropriate and offensive" The Sacred War, a song celebrating the defeat of fascist Germany.[94]

In October 2022 Russia fined TikTok for pushing LGBT content.[104]

Obama era election interference

98% of political donations from Facebook employees went to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.[105] Facebook tampered with news feeds during the 2010 Midterm elections in a 61-million-person social experiment to see how Facebook could impact the real-world voting behavior of millions of people.[106] In 2012, Facebook developed a tool called 'voter megaphone' raising questions about its use and ability to influence elections. Facebook secretly tampered with 1.9 million user's news feeds. Zuckerberg has involved himself in politics in the 2016 presidential election. He has publicly called out positions held by Donald Trump as wrong. Facebook employees have asked if they should try to stop a Trump presidency.[107]



The Wall Street Journal reviewed internal documents about Facebook's "XCheck" or “cross check” program. [108] Some of the documents have been turned over to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEX) and to Congress by a person seeking federal whistleblower protection.

XCheck shields millions of VIP users from the company’s normal enforcement process, the documents show. Some users are “whitelisted”—rendered immune from enforcement actions—while others are allowed to post rule-violating material pending Facebook employee reviews that often never come. XCheck has protected public figures whose posts contain harassment or incitement to violence, violations that would typically lead to sanctions for regular users.

A 2019 internal review of Facebook’s whitelisting practices, marked attorney-client privileged, found favoritism to those users to be both widespread and “not publicly defensible....We are not actually doing what we say we do publicly,” said the confidential review. It called the company’s actions “a breach of trust” and added: “Unlike the rest of our community, these people can violate our standards without any consequences.”

As of 2020 XCheck included at least 5.8 million users, documents show. In its struggle to accurately moderate a torrent of content and avoid negative attention, Facebook created invisible elite tiers within the social network. In describing the system Facebook misled the public and its own Oversight Board. Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the system “was designed for an important reason: to create an additional step so we can accurately enforce policies on content that could require more understanding.”

While the program included most government officials, it didn’t include all candidates for public office, at times effectively granting incumbents in elections an advantage over challengers. The discrepancy was most prevalent in state and local races, the documents show, and employees worried Facebook could be subject to accusations of favoritism.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis asked the Florida Department of State to open an investigation into Facebook’s alleged election interference through its whitelisting program.[109]

2020 election interference

See also: Biden Putsch

Facebook banned new political ads in the week before the 2020 Presidential election, curtailing a highly effective conduit for raising last-minute money and pinpointing messages to voters.

The mammoth social network with 2.7 billion users worldwide has become an essential tool for political advertisers — raking in more than $100 million from the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Joe Biden alone. Unlike TV or print media, Facebook allows campaigns to rapidly respond to events, sometimes in a day or less.

"The last week of the election is the most important week when it comes to messaging," said Tara McGowan, co-founder of digital-first Democratic outfit ACRONYM, adding that "most voters in this country do not tune in and start paying attention or making their plans to vote until the final days of an election."[110]

By October 29, Facebook had already rejected 2.2 million ads and blocked 120,000 posts citing "election misinformation."[111] While mainstream fake news media are allowed to churn baseless scandals and smears in an October Surprise, President Trump would be restricted from responding.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: openly complicit in the Marxist coup plot to subvert American's constitutional rights.

Anna Makanju is the Facebook executive in charge of “election integrity on the platform”;[112] previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia, which includes Ukraine, to former US Vice President Joe Biden. The Facebook executive who blocked all of the negative evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activity in Biden-Burisma scandal is the same person who was coordinating the corrupt activity between the Biden family payoffs and Ukraine.[113]

In August 2020 it was reported that Facebook was planning for the possibility that President Trump or his campaign could try to challenge mail in ballot election results. The New York Times reported that staffers were already putting together contingency plans in the event Trump tries to use Facebook to dispute the vote by declaring the U.S. Postal Service lost mail-in ballots or that other groups interfered with the vote. Facebook officials, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, were holding daily meetings to discuss how to minimize the platform from being used to cast doubts on the results.

The Times noted that one plan would include a “kill switch” to shut down political ads after Election Day. The company officials believe the ads, which Facebook does not check for truthfulness, could be used to disseminate misinformation.

Facebook banned political pages in an attempt to influence elections.[114]

The newspaper said YouTube and Twitter also discussed their own plans if the post-election period becomes problematic.[115]

While mainstream fake news media spins baseless October Surprise scandals and smears in the final week, Facebook banned President Trump from responding.[116]

Center for Technology and Civic Life

The Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) is a group organized by Obama operatives and funded by Zuckerberg to promote Democrat election fraud.[117][118] Zuckerberg funneled more than $400 million in election fraud efforts, $350 million was siphoned through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL),

CTCL distributed hundreds of millions in “Zuckerbucks” to thousands of election jurisdictions in 48 states and Washington, D.C.. These funds were pitched as “COVID-19 response grants” supposedly intended to assist election officials in the safe conduct of elections. However, the infusion of CTCL funds into Democrat-leaning jurisdictions influenced the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Much of the Zuckerbucks were not spent on COVID-19 related expenses—with states reporting expenditures on advertising, vehicle purchases, registering teenagers to vote, and other non- COVID-related items.

The pivotal state of Georgia was one of the biggest targets of these funds, ultimately receiving one of the largest allocations of CTCL funds in the nation.[119]

Emails and documents obtained by the Wisconsin Spotlight allege that individuals affiliated with CTCL took control of election procedures, including giving left-wing advisers “access to boxes of absentee ballots before the election.”[120]

Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

Zuckerberg money to CTCL was laundered through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) controlled by Zuckerberg and his wife. Chan Zuckerberg also gave $433,000 to Ralph Baric,[121] who was described by Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) as her “longtime collaborator” on gain-of-function research on the bat coronavirus.[122] Baric also received funding from Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Health (NIH). Fauci admitted that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg offered him “resources and money” at the time same Zuckerberg was plowing cash into interfering in the 2020 presidential election on behalf of Democrats.[123]

United Front Work Department

The Facebook Oversight Board upheld the platform’s decision to ban President Donald Trump – a strong source of opposition to the Chinese Communist Party.[124] One of the board’s four co-chairs, former Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt, has ties to the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department (UFWD). The U.S. government’s Economic and Security Review Commission flagged the UFWD for seeking “co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party” and coerce American leaders “to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.”[125]

On March 10, 2022 Facebook and Instagram reversed longstanding policies and approved open support for Nazism on their platforms and modified violent hate speech restrictions to allow advocating death to Russians.[128]

Greed and collusion with oppressors

The Washington Post reported that Zuckerberg personally bowed to demands from Vietnam’s communist regime to censor posts with anti-state language in 2020 rather than risk losing an estimated $1 billion in annual revenue from the country.[129]

The mother of fallen U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui had both her Instagram and Facebook and accounts censored after posts that were critical of Joe Biden, who botched the 2021 Afghan withdrawal leading to the unnecessary death of her son.. Nikoui, 20, was one of the 13 U.S. Marines killed in the Kabul airport suicide attack. The Gold Star mother wrote, “After I lay my son to rest you will be seeing me again! Remember I am the one who stood five inches from your face and was letting you know I would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story. You are no leader of any kind! You are a weak human being and a traitor.” The grieving mother revealed that Instagram had censored her post. Her posts were also censored by Facebook, which owns Instagram. “As soon as I posted about what happened to my son Instagram started pulling up my posts from months ago and sending me notifications that if I kept posting stuff like this that they would disable my account. Posts from months ago!”[130]

In May 2020, Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey came under heavy criticism for the company's recent decision to begin inserting "fact-checking" links into the tweets made by President Trump, with the company claiming those tweets to be "misleading" despite the exposure by Project Veritas of Democrat-led voter fraud proving otherwise,[131][132] after Trump tweeted about recent concerns over the intent by the Democrat Party to commit voter fraud at the federal, state and local levels through the use of mail-in ballots during the 2020 Presidential election.[133] The "fact-checking" links in question lead to an "information" page containing links from liberal media outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, all of which indulge in publishing factually-devoid and misleading fake news hit pieces and opinion pieces masquerading as "news" regarding the mail-in vote scandal[134] to fit their anti-Trump narratives.[135] This decision also had the inadvertent outcome of embarrassing Twitter employee Yoel Roth, who was outed as having falsely accused Trump officials, including Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, of being "Nazis" in past tweets he posted.[136] Trump, who accused Twitter of openly trying to interfere with free elections and illegally impeding free speech, responded to Twitter's tampering with his tweets by announcing that he may place Twitter and similar social media companies under heavy regulation or shut them down altogether to punish them for their extreme liberal bias and illegal censorship (in violation of the First Amendment) of conservative speech and thought.[137] Republican Florida senator Marco Rubio also weighed in on the controversy, saying that Twitter could lose its liability protections for choosing to act as a publisher by exercising editorial control through its tampering with Trump's tweets.[138][139]

Twitter imposed new dracoian censorship measures aimed at conservative users in October 2020.[140] One example is labeling criticism of mail-in balloting as ‘misinformation’. James Woods commented the new labeling is clear:

“They are closing down conservative voices completely now. Be prepared that you will no longer be able to see most of my communications, if indeed my account remains open at all. Sorry, folks, but it’s over. And they couldn’t care less what you think. This is the face of tyranny.”[141]
Racist Twitter Admins permanently banned a Black Cuban GOP congressional candidate.[142]

For first time in American history social media companies took direct action against a major U.S. publisher,[143] The New York Post when it published a story on Biden-Burisma scandal.[144] The Post is among the top five newspapers by circulation in the United States. These actions raised serious questions about many social media platforms future Section 230 immunity status.

Twitter and Facebook interfered in the 2020 presidential election by blocking links to the article.[145][146] Twitter and Facebook both have many foreign stockholders.[147] Twitter banned people who posted The New York Post story,[148] including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the article,[149] locked the Trump Campaign account less than 3 weeks before the 2020 Presidential election.[150] Rep. Jim Jordan posted the Biden-Burisma story on a federal government website after Twitter censored the House Judiciary GOP, at which point the link was promptly censored by Twitter.[151] Wikipedia editors censored the Hunter Biden bombshell, and called the New York Post an ‘unreliable’ source.[152] Google also was reported to be meddling in U.S. Senate elections.[153] The Senate Judiciary Committee announced that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would be subpoenaed to explain the meddling.[154] Former James Comey general counsel James A. Baker (DOJ), who was complicit in the Obamagate and FISA abuse scandals, is Twitter's lead counsel.[155] The RNC made a formal complaint to the Federal Elections Commission which reads in part,

"Respondent’s feud with President Trump is well known, as are its frequent efforts to censor the President’s tweets and the “shadow banning” of prominent Republicans, including RNC’s Chair, Ronna McDaniel, and several Republican Members of Congress. Respondent’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, and other senior executives are prolific donors to the Democrat party and other left-wing causes, with 98.7% of the company’s total political contributions going to Democrats. In addition, there appears to be a revolving door between the Biden campaign and the company, with Respondent’s Public Policy Director recently leaving to join the Biden transition team and Senator Kamala Harris’s former Press Secretary now serving as Respondent’s Senior Communications Manager."[156]

By “fact checking” one candidate and not another, Big Tech gave an enormous in-kind campaign contribution of immeasurable monetary value to the Biden campaign.

Misleading investors

In September 2021 Twitter disclosed a binding agreement to settle a class-action lawsuit, under which the social network would pay $809.5 million to resolve claims it provided misleading user-engagement info to investors.

The original lawsuit, filed in 2016 by a Twitter shareholder, alleged Dorsey and others including former CEO Dick Costolo and board member Evan Williams hid facts about Twitter’s slowing user growth while they sold their personal stock holdings “for hundreds of millions of dollars in insider profits.”[157]

Covid coverup

In December 2021, Alex Berenson, a former science writer for the New York Times, filed a lawsuit against Twitter after he was suspended for posting the results of Pfizer COVID vaccine clinical tests.[158]

Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of the nine original mRNA vaccine patents, which were originally filed in 1989, including both the idea of mRNA vaccines and the original proof of principle experiments, and RNA transfection. Dr. Robert Malone has close to 100 peer-reviewed publications which have been cited over 12,000 times.

Since the CCP pandemic outbreak in January 2020, Dr. Malone has been lead a large team focused on clinical research design, drug development, computer modeling and mechanisms of action of repurposed drugs for the treatment of COVID-19.

Dr. Malone is the Medical Director of The Unity Project, a group of 300 organizations across the United States standing against mandated Covid vaccines for children Dr. Malone is also the President of the Global Covid Summit, an organization of over 16,000 doctors and scientists committed to speaking truth to power about Covid pandemic research and treatment.

In December 2021, Dr. Malone was banned for life by Twitter.

Ukraine propaganda war

Researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia published a landmark paper on August 20, 2022 on the activities of bot accounts on Twitter related to the conflict in Ukraine. The Australian findings were staggering – of 5.2 million tweets on the social media network from February 23 to March 8, 2022 at the outbreak of the conflict, between 60 to 80% were shared by fake accounts.[159]

Langley's 7th floor is a reference to CIA headquarters. was founded by Jeff Bezos. In 2013 the Washington Post was acquired by Jeff Bezos. That same year, Amazon also obtained a CIA contract worth $600 million, at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post. The Institute for Public Accuracy released a statement condemning the move.[161]

When the main shareholder in one of the very largest corporations in the world benefits from a massive contract with the CIA on the one hand, and that same billionaire owns the Washington Post on the other hand, there are serious problems. The Post is unquestionably the political paper of record in the United States, and how it covers governance sets the agenda for the balance of the news media. Citizens need to know about this conflict of interest in the columns of the Post itself.

The Nation magazine also condemned the conflict of interest. It was reported in September 2017 that Amazon had deleted numerous one-star reviews of Hillary Clinton's book What Happened.[162]

In 2018, Amazon announced it would raise its minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour, though this was a political stunt, as most of its workers already made over $15 an hour, and it was transitioning to replacing human labor with robots.[163]

Among other left-wing policies, Amazon banned several books that helped people escape homosexuality.[164]

During the 2020 leftwing, anti-capitalist riots the Amazon warehouse in Redlands, California was burned down.[165] Amazon placed the slogan, "Black Lives Matter" on storefronts.[166] was recently listed as one of numerous leftist-controlled companies that have gone "woke" and now support the criminal rioters of Antifa and Black Lives Matter in the wake of the 2020 leftist riots.[167]

Many have condemned the massive corporation for its pervasive and widespread corruption.
