Your Social Media Is Your Credit Score?

G**gle’s CEO Sundar Pichai testified before a committee this week and he didn’t want to tell the whole truth. Why? Because hid company’s partnership with Chin@ is DANGEROUS. I explain why in this video.

The purge of the right on social media was once a slow trickle, with high-profile bans happening only occasionally, and then subsiding. With just three months until the midterm elections, the Masters of the Universe in Silicon Valley have turned online censorship into a cascade.

Earlier this month, Alex Jones was blacklisted on virtually every major social media service, including Apple podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, Facebook, and even Pinterest and Linkedin. Following pressure from CNN and Media Matters, Twitter eventually followed suit with a week-long suspension.

A few days after the mass-purge of Jones’ accounts, Twitter permanently banned libertarian commentator Gavin McInnes, and the official accounts of  his grassroots organization the Proud Boys, on bogus charges of “supporting violence.”

A few days later, Patreon, which has been ramping up its censorship of right-wingers (usually based on unsupported accusations of violence-promotion similar to those used by Twitter), kicked off Islam critic Robert Spencer, founder of Jihad Watch. It later emerged that Mastercard had pressured Patreon into making the call.

Then, last night, Twitter went on another mass-purge of right-wingers, with multiple conservative personalities reporting that their follower count had dropped by hundreds overnight. Among those purged was the account of Vey, a graphics designer who previously produced artwork for Breitbart News. He provided Breitbart with a screenshot of progressive activists targeting his account for mass-reporting prior to his ban.

Big tech CEOs like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey resolutely maintain that they do not discriminate on the basis of political views. In an election year, it would be suicidal to claim otherwise. But the mountain of evidence contradicting them renders their well-rehearsed media talking points almost comical.

The list of the conservatives, right-wingers and other critics of progressivism who have been kicked off at least one major online service is huge. Tommy Robinson (banned by Twitter), Gavin McInnes (banned by Twitter), Lauren Southern (banned by Patreon, Stripe), Britanny Pettibone (banned by Patreon), Proud Boys USA (banned by Twitter), Sargon of Akkad (banned by Twitter), Roger Stone (banned by Twitter), Milo Yiannopolous (banned by Twitter), Hunter Avallone (banned by Twitter), Prager University (censored by YouTube), congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng (campaign ads banned by Facebook and Twitter), Pamela Geller (repeatedly kicked off Facebook), Alex Jones (banned by almost every social media platform).

These individuals all had hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions of followers on their social media accounts prior to being banned. Their social media platforms served as organizing hubs for petitions, fundraisers, rallies, and other political activities of the grassroots right. The loss of their social media accounts will have a major impact on the ability of conservatives and right-wingers to organize its online supporters for the U.S. midterm elections and beyond.

The left, meanwhile, is virtually unrestricted in its ability to amplify its voice on social media. On the same day that it purged hundreds of accounts that followed prominent conservatives on social media, it verified Sarah Jeong, the newly-minted New York Times editorial board member who rose to infamy for using Twitter to engage in racist diatribes against white people.

Jeong described whites as “groveling goblins” who “mark up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” and boasted of feeling “joy” when being “cruel to old white men.” Not only did Twitter decline to ban her for hate speech, they didn’t even ask her to delete the offending tweets. And then they verified her — after her tweets became the subject of international attention.

This power imbalance on the most influential technology platforms on the internet is sure to have an impact on the midterm elections. One side of politics is allowed to mobilize online without being impeded, while the other is not.

For over a year, Democrats and the mainstream media have been caterwauling about Russian social media interference in the 2016 election. Yet, as even the Washington Post admitted, Russia spent a minuscule sum on Facebook ads in 2016. Voters observing the ads, according to research conducted by an academic who is no fan of Trump, were unlikely to have been affected. If Russia’s goal was to sow panic in American politics then they’ve succeeded, largely thanks to the Democrats. But direct influence on voters? Not so much.

The real attempt to bias the outcome of an election hasn’t come from beyond America’s borders, but from the San Francisco Bay Area. Shamed by Democrats and the Media for “letting Trump win” in 2016, social media companies have responded by utterly crippling the ability of the president’s supporters to organize on the web.

Free-market libertarians say “build your own platforms” — but replacing even if replacing Google, Twitter, and Facebook were possible (and that’s unlikely), it’s a project that would take many years, possibly over a decade, to complete. How many election cycles could Silicon Valley influence by then?

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, who masterminded the president’s digital operations in 2020, understands the problem. In an op-ed for the Washington Examiner last week, Parscale says “big tech is becoming big brother.”

“What we are seeing in Big Tech is the inherent totalitarian impulse of the Left come into full focus,” writes Parscale. “The Left is losing at the ballot box, and there are some signs it is starting to lose the culture war too. The free and open Internet has been indispensable in spreading conservative ideas, and it was indispensable in getting Donald Trump elected president — and now the Left wishes to destroy it.”

If they want to save themselves, the rest of the Republican party must realize that the tech giants that have come to dominate so much of our lives are not the same as Christian bakers, and are crying out for regulation. Now is not the time for free-market platitudes. Democracy itself is at risk.

Before long, if you don’t agree with official climate change propaganda, you will be banned from YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter

(Natural News) Back in 2006, The Guardian published an article entitled, “A climate of censorship,” in which Brendan O’Neill warned that government officials in the U.K. were comparing climate change deniers to terrorists and arguing that both should be denied media air time. He warned that many such “deniers” were, in fact, scientists at respected British universities, and that no government official had the right to compare them to dangerous terrorists. He noted that there was an increasing push towards the censorship of free speech, including the right of such scientists and others to insist that man-made global warming does not exist.

O’Neill noted:

Increasingly, environmentalists are calling for the silencing of climate-change skeptics or deniers. The deniers’ words are so dangerous, we are told, that they must be censored for the good of humanity. Some have even claimed that in denying climate change, these individuals are committing a “crime against humanity” and should be put on trial.

I am not a scientist or an expert on climate change. But I am a free speech advocate. And this rising tide of intolerance and censoriousness in the debate about climate change should concern anyone who believes in free and open and rational debate.

A dozen years later, it is highly unlikely that The Guardian would even publish an opinion piece like O’Neill’s anymore. It has become commercially “dangerous” to suggest in any way, shape or form that man-made global warming might not be true – though these days you are more likely to encounter the term “climate change” than “global warming,” as temperatures have inconveniently refused to match up to the predicted highs of the so-called “experts.” In short, it would be financial suicide for any mainstream broadcaster or publication to give airtime to the evidence presented by anyone who denies global warming; their advertising dollars would simply disappear, and they would be mocked and decried as scientifically ignorant. (Related: Global warming debunked – NASA report verifies carbon dioxide cools atmosphere.)

YouTube censors any who dare to spread “climate misinformation”

BuzzFeed recently reported that the social media giant YouTube is now “fact-checking” any videos which dare to question climate change. The company has also taken the step of adding the following disclaimer to such videos:

Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.

Amazingly, this line is a direct quotation from a Wikipedia entry, as if Wikipedia can be referenced as an accurate source of scientific information!

Since March, YouTube has also been adding Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica entries next to “conspiracy theory” video clips, such as those claiming that the moon landing and Oklahoma City bombing never took place. By doing the same for climate change videos, they are directly censoring scientific information – in many cases presented by knowledgeable experts – and lumping it together in the public mind with completely unbelievable and historically unsound clips. (Related: The “global warming hoax – 30 years of failed predictions that never came true.)

There are respected scientists who insist global warming does not exist

What YouTube is doing would be acceptable if all the world’s most respected scientists were in agreement about the climate change theory. Nothing could be further from the truth, however, as was recently illustrated when the highly respected, retired German climatologist Dr. Werner Kirstein addressed the annual Anti-Censorship Conference.

In reference to global warming, Kirstein warned: “[T]he science has been seriously compromised by politics, power-hungry bureaucrats and politically motivated organizations, such as the WMO, IPCC and The World Bank. It all comes down to funding. It’s sad, but that’s how it works.” He added, “Climate science is totally politicized.”

So much for Wikipedia and its “Multiple lines of scientific evidence.”

Of course, YouTube’s actions mimic those of all the other social media platforms, all of which have been actively censoring the information they have access to. Pretty soon, censorship won’t be enough, and anyone who admits to skepticism regarding the mainstream global warming narrative will likely be denied access to these platforms.

Breaking News! Alex Jones Channel on You Tube is now censored as well as on other social network platforms

Infowars
6 August 2018

Update: In a sign of solidarity for the First Amendment, the Drudge Report has linked directly to the Alex Jones Show so Alex can directly respond to the ban and what it really means for the Trump presidency

YouTube has outright banned The Alex Jones Channel not long after news broke that Google is building a censored search engine for China.

Interestingly, the ban – which comes on the same day that Facebook and others banned Infowars for unspecified instances of “hate speech” – comes right before the 2018 mid-term elections in which the establishment is trying to stifle President Trump’s agenda.

It’s almost as if “Skynet” – an oft-used term to describe Big Tech and its “control freak nature” – is admitting defeat and is making last-ditch moves to stop competition to establishment-approved viewpoints.

In all honesty, social media has been “shadow banning” Infowars ever since the election of President Trump.

“Infowars is widely credited with having played a key role in electing Donald Trump. By banning Infowars, big tech is engaging in election meddling just three months before crucial mid-terms,” wrote Paul Joseph Watson. “With the Infowars ban, Apple, Facebook , Spotify & YouTube (Google) have all now ascribed themselves the power to remove people & outlets from their platforms based on their political opinions.”

“This power will be abused time and time again to meddle in elections.”

While claiming it’s banning Alex Jones over “hate speech,” Google has no problem building a censored search engine for China which scrubs results about human rights and religion.

“Google is planning to launch a censored version of its search engine in China that will blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest,” according to The Intercept. “The project – code-named Dragonfly – has been underway since spring of last year, and accelerated following a December 2017 meeting between Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai and a top Chinese government official, according to internal Google documents and people familiar with the plans.”

 

My Conclusion I’m so speechless and I’m in disbelief because You Tube have done this; censored and de-platform the Alex Jones Channel. Since late 2010 that’s when I began listening to Alex Jones and that got Eco Liberty created on WordPress at the beginning of 2014 because Alex Jones encourage us to have our platform. Because he believe that if we have enough awaken people we might defeat the evil of the New World Order and allow humanity to process to the next level.
Alex Jones knew this censorship was coming sooner or later and it just happen on this day.
What got to say to Alex Jones. “Alex Jones you a great hard working Man who believes in individual liberty and limited. You knew America is trouble and getting the word out is what going to get people awaken one day. Since late 2010 Infowars had inspired and empower me; and I don’t always agree on somethings what you said. But it doesn’t mean your Channel should be censored. When you channel get censored on You Tube and banned on Facebook you only going to come back louder; your rant will be louder than a roaring Lion. Alex Jones you did what you can; you gave what you got; to defeat the evil to defeat the New World Order.”

For me I might not be post any more video because You tube censorship. It’s now time that we need other platform that allow us to speak minds and doesn’t support Political Correctness and any other Left wing ideology.

Facebook is shooting itself in the feet with Censorship toward conservatives

Alex Jones spoke about the Facebook stocks plunging because they keep censoring conservatives for no good reason. If Facebook is going to keep being one sided by censoring conservatives; people are going to look for other social media platform that allow people to speak their mind without being censored. That why Minds is going to be great platform for conservatives; because they know they will be not censored just for speaking their minds. Facebook will one day be dead because of their one sided policy toward the left.

Study: Getting Off Facebook For Just 5 Days Reduces Stress Levels

Avoiding social media decreases cortisol

A new study has found that taking a break from Facebook for just five days reduces the level of the stress hormone cortisol.

Researchers in Australia asked 138 participants to give up Facebook for five days or continue to use Facebook as normal. General well-being and salivary cortisol were measured before and after the test period.

“Relative to those in the Facebook Normal condition, those in the No Facebook condition experienced lower levels of cortisol” after avoiding Facebook, according to the study.

“Our results suggest that the typical Facebook user may occasionally find the large amount of social information available taxing, and Facebook vacations could ameliorate this stress—at least in the short-term,” the authors state.

As I document in the video below, even top Facebook executives now admit that social media is incredibly harmful and is literally “programming” its users.

Social media works by rewarding the brain’s dopamine centers similar to smoking, drinking alcohol and gambling, meaning entire generations of young people are being turned into addicts.

Social media also causes depression because users see their friend’s ‘highlights reel’ and then judge their own lives as being boring in comparison.

Other research suggests that social media use is shortening attention spans and causing the infantilization of people’s brains.

Millennials’ coping mechanisms for dealing with stress have become so eroded that they turn to social media and narcissism in an attempt to ameliorate tension.

This only results in constant distraction and disruption, making concentration more difficult and harming long term memory.

 

5 Ways that Social Media could be screwing you over

  1. It’s designed to be Addictive
  2. It give you a false sense of Accomplishment
  3. Lowers your Self-esteem
  4. Hurts your Social skills
  5. The Worst Type of investment

I’m not saying that social media is bad; it can be good in a way if you use it responsibly and being selective of what friends request you choose to accept or add; what page you choose to like; what group you choose to join; what event you choose to go. And it you’re that serious; feel free to give up media for good if you wish. For Me I don’t use it too often. Please don’t let kid join social media otherwise they don’t learn social and communication skills; not allow your kids to own a mobile or smart phone until they reach their age of consent and been taught to use it responsibly.  Another video I recommend you to watch 7 Reasons You Should Quit Facebook | Negative Effects Of Social Media

Facebook’s plan to take over the web

Facebook wants you to spend all your time on Facebook

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has talked about bringing Facebook to more of people’s lives – or expanding the things you can do with its products.

There seems to be a lot going on at the big blue social network these days. A spate of headlines from the past several weeks have outlined some very ambitious plans: Facebook is building a real-time news tool that could kill Twitter. Facebook’s testing shopping products that could take on Amazon. Facebook’s making its own YouTube.

[Facebook tests another tool to get us to embrace social shopping]

On Friday, the company officially shared news on its video plans, saying that it’s testing “new video experiences” for its mobile and desktop versions. These include features on the site that will suggest related videos, let users multitask while watching video and save videos to watch for later. Per the blog post announcing the effort, Facebook is also launching a new, dedicated section on the social network just for videos: Continue reading Facebook’s plan to take over the web

Facebook still tracks users after unplugging from network

Facebook is once again under scrutiny over its privacy protocols, this time after apparently violating European laws by tracking users’ internet activity after they have logged out of the website. The tactic, known as frictionless sharing, tracks users’ activities on the web and shares it with other companies. Ben Swann talks to legal analyst and media personality Michael Lebron, better known as ‘Lionel,’ to get further insight into the report.

Lawyer at the European Court of Justice advises users to close down their Facebook accounts

Earlier this week the European Commission’s attorney Bernhard Schima told the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) the US-EU Safe Harbor framework does not work.

facebook-controlThe framework process supposedly protects personal data. In 2013, however, it was discovered the NSA and its British counterpart — the GCHQ, short for Government Communications Headquarters — had siphoned off data transfers by tapping directly into under sea cable networks.

In fact, according to a lawyer representing the Austrian government before the CJEU, Safe Harbor is better suited for pirates than the protection of data of EU citizens. In other words, the system was designed to be hijacked by the NSA and GCHQ.

“You might consider closing your Facebook account if you have one,” Schima told attorney-general Yves Bot at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

Edward Snowden had earlier revealed that the NSA’s notorious PRISM program had provided access to a number of US tech companies and social media services, including Facebook. Continue reading NSA and Facebook Work Together
