Why Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all need to be urgently regulated to halt politically motivated censorship

(Natural News)
White House chief strategist and free market advocate Steve Bannon made news late last month by allegedly floating the idea of regulating Google and Facebook like utilities.

In a familiar refrain, three anonymous sources who were involved in discussions with Bannon supposedly revealed this development to The Intercept.

Government intervention into the private sector is usually and generally a bad idea, but assuming this report really reflects Bannon’s thinking, it may be worth considering given the internal and external censorship allegations engulfing Big Social, i.e., the Leftist, politically correct Silicon Valley oligarchy.

From The Intercept:

Bannon’s basic argument, as he has outlined it to people who’ve spoken with him, is that Facebook and Google have become effectively a necessity in contemporary life….

Regulating a company as a utility does not mean that the government controls it, but rather that it is much more tightly regulated in what it is able to do and prices it is able to charge. And it doesn’t mean every element of the company would be regulated in that way. For Google…it may only be the search function that would be regulated like a utility.

The Intercept added that in years past, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg actually referred to his creation as a social utility.

Earlier this week, Google fired software engineer James Damore who wrote a 10-page essay from a centrist standpoint challenging the tech giant’s far Left, diversity-at-all-costs culture, a progressive agenda that simultaneously rejects intellectual diversity. This is, of course, the same organization that creates the search algorithms upon which almost every Internet user relies. (Related: Read more about online censorship at NewsCartels.com.)

In an interview after his termination, Damore remarked that there are lots of libertarian, conservative, and anti-social justice warrior employees in Silicon Valley but they have to keep their opinions on the down low to maintain job security, Breitbart reported.

As Natural News has detailed in a whole series of articles (with more coming), Google critics maintain that the giant search engine has down-ranked independent journalism and natural medicine sites — including Natural News at one point — that don’t share its progressive worldview, and is destroying their web traffic in the process.

In June 2016, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claimed that Google was actively engaged in trying to help Hillary Clinton become president. In a subsequently deleted video, SourceFed demonstrated that Google was allegedly manipulating auto-complete search results to bury negative information about Hillary Clinton.

Last year, Facebook found itself in a scandal over censoring conservative-oriented news from its news feed. As part of the “solution,” it now relies on far-left, third-party fact checkers to determine the difference between real and fake news. “We now live in a world where Facebook has the power and authority to flag and filter out what you can and cannot read,” Natural News separately explained.

Google-owned YouTube is currently demonetizing certain political videos, the latest being those produced by longtime Trump backers Diamond and Silk, thereby choking off a revenue stream, which is a form of stifling free speech.

As part of an expose with the “rebels” of Google, one former engineer using the alias Emmett told Breitbart that “he personally witnessed efforts from leftists within Google to bias YouTube’s algorithms to push anti-PC content off the platform’s ‘related videos” recommendations…and ‘it’s ‘only a matter of time’ before Google begins to bias its search results against the Trump movement, Republicans, and right-leaning politicians.”

Twitter has also been accused of suspending the accounts of Trump supporters and others on flimsy pretexts and shadow-banning tweets favorable to the president or that run counter to the Leftist, globalist worldview.

Earlier this year, Natural News founder Mike Adams wrote that the Google monopoly should be broken up for the benefit of consumers, the competitive marketplace, and free information flow. A New York Times Op-Ed subsequently seemed to agree with the Health Ranger about Google in general, suggesting that the government may need to regulate the search engine giant like a public utility given its gatekeeping sway over web traffic and e-commerce.

Given the revelations that seem to unfold on a daily basis, class-action lawsuits against these dominant social media platforms may also be on the horizon. In the meantime, free-speech advocates are planning nationwide protests, (#MarchOnGoogle) at Google offices around the country.

Parenthetically, the Health Ranger developed GoodGopher.com (which, unlike Google, doesn’t spy on the user), providing uncensored search results from thousands of independent media websites.

Any form of regulation would have to be carefully crafted to avoid any infringement on the First Amendment.

That said, taking all the circumstances into account, do you think it’s time for government, as flawed as it often is, to step in and regulate Google, Facebook, and Twitter like public utilities?

Unreal: Twitter CENSORS Eric Trump’s Drudge Tweet showing great American job numbers

Intellihub Editors Note: Amazingly, mainstream media outlets such as The Hill are actually reporting that Eric Trump is “claiming” Twitter censored him. In reality, the evidence is publicly available and undeniable. 

Eric Trump on Friday exposed Twitter had censored a news story he shared showing great American job numbers.

In a Friday message to his followers, Trump showed how a tweet he shared from the Drudge Report Twitter account was blocked and labeled “potentially sensitive content.”

“Why are my tweets about jobs and the economy being censored?” Trump asked.

Eric was attempting to share a Drudge Report tweet from CNBC showing July job numbers grew by 209,000 jobs in July, beating the 183,000 expected job growth.

The shadow ban by Twitter underscores how the leftist social media platform actively works to hide tweets which reflect positively on the president.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Twitter also censored positive replies to Trump tweets, in addition to tweets sent out by Trump himself.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has previously expressed support for failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Chelsea Clinton Gets Destroyed on Twitter For Lecturing “White Parents” on Racism




Home » Criticism, Discrimination, Immorality, North America » Chelsea Clinton Gets Destroyed on Twitter For Lecturing “White Parents” on Racism













 







Chelsea Clinton, who is known for doing absolutely nothing other than grift through life on her last name thinks she’s in a position to lecture ‘white parents’ about how to raise their children.

Chelsea Clinton is a white woman who makes nearly $1 million a year for doing zero work. Perhaps she learned the game from her mother who called blacks ‘super predators’ and ripped off Haitians after a devastating earthquake. Or just like Bill Clinton who passed the Omnibus Crime Bill in the 90’s which incarcerated a record number of blacks.

Chelsea Clinton sent out a tweet saying, “White parents need to talk about racism & hate with our children.”

According to Chelsea Clinton, only whites can be racist…the internet responded accordingly:

JK Rowling is a pathetic liar, goes on Twitter rant over FAKE NEWS

Author JK Rowling is hysterically lying about President Donald Trump, claiming he deliberately ignored a disabled boy in a wheelchair.

Video of Trump meeting a group of children shows him immediately walking into the room and bending down to greet the disabled boy.

However, Rowling trashed Trump on Twitter, commenting, “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President.”

She then went on a blubbering rant about how Trump was a “Monster of narcissism (who) values only himself and his pale reflections. The disabled, minorities, transgender people, the poor, women.”

One problem with that; Rowling is talking absolute shit.

The clip Rowling is referring to is from a different moment when Trump obviously cannot see that the disabled boy is reaching out to him.

The earlier clip, which Rowling did not post, clearly illustrates how Trump spent the most time with the disabled boy out of anyone else in the room.

Rowling’s attack on Trump once again exposes her as a melodramatic, virtue-signalling witch who poses as a great humanitarian yet is really a vile person who is forced to lie about others to make herself look good.

Rowling has yet to respond about whether she will take in Syrian refugees she claims to care so deeply about.

The Harry Potter author, who is worth around $1.2 billion dollars, owns multiple mansions and has umpteen spare bedrooms yet hasn’t volunteered to house a single migrant.

Another Twitter storm: Trump blasts AG over ‘Clinton collusion with Ukraine’, says acting FBI director got ‘$700k from H’

    

Donald Trump has accused his attorney general of taking a “very weak position” on the alleged collusion between the Clinton campaign and Ukraine, and once again brought up a contribution in which the wife of the acting FBI director received money “from H.”

The barrage of accusations against Jeff Sessions and Andrew McCabe came in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

The tweets, directed at Fox News host Sean Hannity, came after Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Hannity’s show last week, during which the president’s son was interviewed on his personal meeting with a Russian lawyer. The meeting has been used by Trump’s critics as they continue to accuse his campaign of colluding with Russia to win the election.

The alleged collusion of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Ukrainian government was reported months ago. Kiev allegedly tried to help Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton win the election and tried to score political points with her by attacking Trump campaign aid Paul Manafort, a decision which reportedly backfired after Trump became president.

The allegations against Ukraine resurfaced after Trump Jr. was accused of attempting to receive compromising material against Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

Trump also accused FBI acting director Andrew McCabe of getting “$700,000 from H for wife.”

McCabe’s wife Jill reportedly received hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions for her 2015 campaign for Senate, from Virginia Governor and Clinton ally Terry McAuliffe. Andrew McCabe’s capacity to investigate the case surrounding Clinton’s email server was consequently brought into question by Republicans last year.

Trump raised the issue of the contributions during his campaign.

Trump lashes out at A.G. Sessions on Twitter for ignoring “Hillary crimes”

The feud between Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions started early on Tuesday, when President Trump, in an early tweetstorm lashed out at the attorney general whom he accused of taking a “VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump tweeted.

Trump also asked the A.G. where is the investigation into “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign… quietly working to boost Clinton.”

In a follow-up tweet, Trump also slammed the acting director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, whom he implicitly accused of corruption for getting $700,000 from Hillary for his wife (which incidentally is accurate, as the WSJ described last October, in “Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife“)

“Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” he said on Twitter.

Today’s animosity between Trump and Sessions was first unveiled in an interview with The New York Times last week when Trump said he would have never hired his attorney general if he knew he would recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Trump in a tweet Monday morning also asked why the “beleaguered A.G.” wasn’t investigating ties between Clinton and Russia.

Overnight, the WaPo reported that Trump has floated possible replacements for Sessions including Sen. Ted Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, although subsequently, Giuliani said on Monday, however, that he’s not being considered for the position.

In addition to slamming Sessions, Trump also focused on today’s big item, the latest Senate vote on the GOP Healthcare vote, which however remains in chaos as nobody knows what will be voted on just hours ahead of the actual vote. After berating Republicans for failing to repeal and replace Obamacare on Monday, Trump tweeted “Big day for health care. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate! ObamaCare is torturing the American People.The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand.”

Today’s Trump tweets followed a late night barrage against the WaPo/Amazon/Jeff Bezos (who is now about $2 billion away from becoming the world’s richest man), in which Trump said “So many stories about me in the @washingtonpost are Fake News. They are as bad as ratings challenged @CNN. Lobbyist for Amazon and taxes?” and “Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?“, prompting many to ask if Trump’s much-anticipated crackdown against Bezos has officially begun.

Trump, in angry Twitter spree, declares ‘the complete power to pardon’

President Trump went on a Twitter tirade Saturday morning, lashing out at multiple targets, including Obamacare, Hillary Clinton, two newspapers, his own administration and the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Notably, he announced that “all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon.”

The Washington Post reported Friday that, according to a source, Trump has asked his team about “his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself” in connection with the Russia inquiry. Another source told the Post that “Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves.”

Constitutional lawyer Laurence Tribe and two former White House ethics lawyers contended Friday that presidents can’t pardon themselves.

Trump’s Saturday Twitter flurry began with an attack against the Post. The paper reported the day before that, according to intelligence intercepts, Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed campaign issues with Russia’s ambassador. Sessions has repeatedly denied having such discussions with Russian officials.

“A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions,” Trump tweeted. “These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!” (“Amazon” refers to the Post’s owner, Jeff Bezos, who founded the online retail giant.)

The commander in chief’s Twitter feed quickly moved on to attack the New York Times.

“The Failing New York Times foiled U.S. attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist,Al-Baghdadi.Their sick agenda over National Security,” wrote Trump, who earlier this week granted the Times a wide-ranging interview.

His tweet was apparently referring to a Fox News report on Gen. Tony Thomas’ comments the day before at the Aspen Security Forum. Fox reported that Thomas, who heads the Special Operations Command, said the U.S. military had a “very good lead” in 2015 on Islamic State terror group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“Unfortunately, it was leaked in a prominent national newspaper about a week later and that lead went dead,” Thomas recalled, according to the report.

Those comments seemed to refer to a summer 2015 Times story, in which the paper reported that the U.S. gleaned a trove of information about ISIS from a Delta Force commando raid.

“The Pentagon raised no objections with the Times before publishing the story in 2015 and no senior American official ever complained publicly about it until now,” a Times spokesperson told Yahoo News on Saturday, adding that the paper has asked the White House “to clarify the tweet.”

Trump’s Saturday Twitter tirade moved on to Clinton, his 2016 foe.

“So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Council [sic] looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 e-mails deleted?” the commander in chief asked. “What about all of the Clinton ties to Russia, including Podesta Company, Uranium deal, Russian Reset, big dollar speeches etc.”

The social media outburst is striking for including a public shot against Sessions, a longtime Trump loyalist, though the president undermined him in a recent Times interview. In that interview, Trump said he wouldn’t have appointed Sessions to his Cabinet if he knew the Alabama lawmaker would recuse himself from the Russia probe.

Sessions recused himself in March after the Post revealed that he met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the campaign. In his confirmation hearings, Sessions had insisted he had no such contacts. Since then, he has maintained that he never met with “Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign.” The Post’s Friday report suggested that also was not true.

Trump has repeatedly complained about the Russia probe, which is now overseen by the Justice Department’s special counsel, Robert Mueller, who was named to the investigation after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director. (Trump has misspelled “counsel” in two prior tweets as well.)

The president has also repeatedly attempted to deflect the spotlight of the Russia investigation back onto Clinton and her campaign, though Clinton was defeated over seven months ago.

Continuing the effort, Trump exclaimed Saturday, “My son Donald openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!”

Donald Trump Jr. earlier this month disclosed emails arranging a 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer and others to obtain dirt on the Clinton campaign. Despite the president’s claim, the disclosure came only when the Times was about to publish a story about the emails. And Trump Jr. has repeatedly shifted his story about that meeting.

On Saturday, Trump also attacked Democrats and Obamacare, urging Republicans to repeal the law. He further defended his new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, for disparaging him during the campaign.
