Democrat prez candidate Andrew Yang’s ‘Emperor has no clothes’ moment

Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang, 44, is an attorney, entrepreneur, and son of Taiwanese immigrants, with a net worth of $1 million.

See “Net worth of 2020 presidential candidates

Yesterday, Andrew Yang said something quite remarkable, akin to the child in the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale who alone said the truth — that the Emperor was not wearing any clothes,

On ABC This Week, Yang said no voters are asking him about the impeachment of President Trump, and that Americans are more worried about child and health care costs than they are about impeachment.

Then Yang said something even more remarkable — that the Democratic Party should ask themselves the “hard questions” of why Trump was elected, and that the primary reason why Trump was elected was the economy, specifically Trump’s “capitalizing” on the loss of manufacturing jobs in Midwest swing states.

Yang said (Newsweek):

“It’s clear the reason why Donald Trump is our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs that were primarily based in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri and Iowa – the swing states he needed to win.

And what we did to those jobs we are now going to do to the retail jobs, the call center jobs, the fast food jobs and eventually the truck-driving jobs. We have to have a new way forward that works for all Americans independent of your political affiliation. These problems are technological and apply to us all….

And the Democratic Party, unfortunately, is acting like Donald Trump is the cause of all of our problems. He’s a symptom and we need to cure the underlying disease.

Democrats have still not asked themselves the hard questions about why Donald Trump won in 2016. Where, if you look around the country you see 30 percent of stores and malls closing, you see record-high levels of stress and financial insecurity, student loan debt, even suicides and drug overdoses — these are the problems that voters talk to me about when I’m out there every single day.”

Alas, Yang’s identification of his party’s failure will be to no effect because of this simple reason: the Democratic Party had long abandoned the American worker.

What neither Yang nor any of the other Democrat candidates would admit is that contrary to its traditional image and continuing pretense to be the party of the American worker, the Democratic Party actually had become the party of not just the rich, but the super-rich, and of the globalists. In contrast to the stereotype of the Republican Party being the party of the rich, the GOP is now the party of the middle class and the working poor.

Years before Donald Trump and the 2016 election, the transformation of the two parties was already underway. Over the course of Barack Obama’s two terms as president, the American middle class shifted their allegiance to the Republican Party, while the Democrats became the party of the globalist upper class and of the non-working welfare-dependent lower class, neither of whom are “America First” nationalists or patriots.

See my post of Oct. 22, 2019, “Democrats are now the party of the super-rich; Republicans, party of workers”.

George Soros banned from 6 countries

Though he is 89 years old, George Soros — through his Open Society Foundations, to which he’s donated more than $32 billion — continues to foment turmoil, unrest and mischief across the world.

In the United States, Soros has/had his hand in the Antifa, the Ferguson race riots, the “caravans” of Central American “migrants,” and the “whistleblower” who ignited the Demonrats’ current efforts to impeach President Trump. In Europe, Soros is behind the flood of “refugees” and “migrants,” Ukraine, “climate change” activist Great Thunberg, and the Brexit chaos.

Some countries, however, have taken steps to expel and ban Soros, his operatives, and his Open Society. In chronological order, the six countries are:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Poland
  3. Turkey
  4. Russia
  5. Hungary
  6. Philippines

While not outright banning him, the Israeli government has said Soros is not welcome there.

The only question is why Soros still has not been banned from the United States.

Since August 2017, there is a “White House petition to declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations’ assets under RICO and NDAA law,” which has been signed by 197,385 people — enough to get a response from the White House. To sign the petition, go here.

President Trump Pardons Veterans Accused of War Crimes – Generals Miffed

President Donald J. Trump Friday (Nov. 15) issued two full pardons and a grant of clemency to three veterans of the war in Afghanistan who had been accused of war crimes by the Department of Defense.

Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance and Special Forces Army Major Mathew Golsteyn received full pardons. They both had been charged with murder in connection with the deaths of Afghanis whom they believed to be enemy combatants. Special Warfare Operator First Class, Navy SEAL Chief Edward R. Gallagher received a presidential order of clemency that restored all his military decorations and his rank that had been taken away by a military tribunal, despite the fact that Gallagher had been acquitted of all of the most serious charges against him. Gallagher had been charged with murder in connection with the death of a wounded Afghani soldier. He was acquitted of those charges when another soldier confessed to killing the alleged terrorist. He was convicted of having his picture taken with the body of a dead Afghani soldier, although the photograph was not that of the soldier he was charged with murdering.

Before his prosecution, Gallagher held the rank of Chief Petty Officer, had been awarded a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor, and had been assigned to an important position in the Navy as an instructor. He also had been selected to receive a promotion to Senior Chief Petty Officer. Though ultimately acquitted on all of the most serious charges, he was stripped of these honors as he awaited his trial and its outcome. President Trump’s order said that given his service to our nation, a promotion back to the rank and pay grade of Chief Petty Officer is justified.

Details of the backgrounds of the background and charges against the three men, and President Trump’s actions were outlined in a White House press release late Friday afternoon:

“In early July 2012, only days after Lieutenant Lorance had taken command of his platoon in one of the most dangerous battle zones in Afghanistan, a motorcycle with three men approached him and his men with unusual speed. Under difficult circumstances and prioritizing the lives of American troops, Lorance ordered his men to engage, and two of the three men were killed. Following these events, Lorance was convicted of several charges. He has served more than six years of a 19-year sentence he received.

Many Americans have sought executive clemency for Lorance, including 124,000 people who have signed a petition to the White House, as well as several members of Congress, including Senators Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy, and Representatives Steve Scalise, Garret Graves, Duncan Hunter, Paul Gosar, Adam Kinzinger, Scott Perry, Brian Babin, Neal Dunn, Michael Waltz, Louie Gohmert, Daniel Webster, Steve King, Ralph Norman, Mark Meadows, Clay Higgins, Ralph Abraham, Mike Johnson, and Jody Hice.

Major Mathew Golsteyn, an officer of the United States Army and graduate of West Point, is currently set to stand trial for an allegedly unlawful killing in connection with one of the largest battles of the Afghanistan War. As our forces cleared the Taliban from the city of Marjah, an Improvised Explosive Device detonated, killing two Marines. The terrorist bombmaker, as identified by an Afghan informant, who had killed our troops, was detained and questioned. Golsteyn was compelled to release him, however, due in part to deficiencies within the fledgling Afghan detention system. Golsteyn has said he later shot the terrorist because he was certain that the terrorist’s bomb making activities would continue to threaten American troops and their Afghan partners, including Afghan civilians who had helped identify him. After nearly a decade-long inquiry and multiple investigations, a swift resolution to the case of Major Golsteyn is in the interests of justice. Clemency for Major Golsteyn has broad support, including from Representatives Louie Gohmert, Duncan Hunter, Mike Johnson, Ralph Abraham, and Clay Higgins, American author and Marine combat veteran Bing West, and Army combat veteran Pete Hegseth.

Before the prosecution of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward Gallagher, he had been selected for promotion to Senior Chief, awarded a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor, and assigned to an important position in the Navy as an instructor. Though ultimately acquitted on all of the most serious charges, he was stripped of these honors as he awaited his trial and its outcome. Given his service to our Nation, a promotion back to the rank and pay grade of Chief Petty Officer is justified.

The United States military justice system helps ensure good order and discipline for our millions of uniformed military members and holds to account those who violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Due in part to this system, we have the most disciplined, most effective, most respected, and most feared fighting force in the world.

The President, as Commander-in-Chief, is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the law is enforced and when appropriate, that mercy is granted. For more than two hundred years, presidents have used their authority to offer second chances to deserving individuals, including those in uniform who have served our country.  These actions are in keeping with this long history.  As the President has stated, ‘when our soldiers have to fight for our country, I want to give them the confidence to fight.’”

Reaction to the President’s order came quickly.

Lorance was immediately released from the federal Fort Leavenworth Military Prison in Leavenworth, Kansas, where he had been incarcerated since 2013.

Golsteyn was charged in 2018 with premeditated murder over a killing that took place in 2010, when he was a captain in. He was awaiting his trial on that charge when President Trump’s was delivered before the trial could begin.

Gallagher had been investigated and tried twice before his acquittal on the murder charge.

While the presidential pardons were applauded by conservatives and activists for the veterans, the military brass reacted with petulance and outright disobedience of President Trump’s lawful order.

Among the detractors was former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who wrote on Twitter: “Absent evidence of innocence or injustice the wholesale pardon of US service members accused of war crimes signals our troops and allies that we don’t take the Law of Armed Conflict seriously. Bad message. Bad precedent. Abdication of moral responsibility. Risk to us.”

Tim Parlatore, attorney for Gallagher, said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday that the Navy now is trying to humiliate his client by attempting to take away his SEAL Trident.

“This is an action that they could have taken at any time from July right after the verdict, until today,” Parlatore said. “President Trump takes action on a Friday afternoon — Monday morning, the admiral [Adm. Collin Green] comes in and brings everybody together and says ‘I disagree with the president, we’re going to take his Trident.'”

On a personal note, I applaud President Trump’s actions. He is the Commander and Chief of all our military and has every legal and moral right to act as he did in granting clemency and pardons to these three combat veterans. To the President’s candy-ass civilian naysayers, and the insouciant, effete fruit-salad bespeckled generals who would throw the combat veterans to the dogs, rather than grant them mercy, I would only say, “You weren’t there. And, you are clueless.”

In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do in combat, you do not have the luxury of second-guessing every action. You make judgments on the fly, and you hope for the best. Sometimes the results are to the good; sometimes they are not. That’s the way war is. That’s the way war always will be.

Once upon a time, the United States waged war to prevail over its enemies. Generals, admirals, and the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, fought to win. They did so by destroying as much of the enemy’s property as possible, occupying as much enemy territory as possible, and killing as many of the enemy’s citizens as it took to force the enemy into giving up. The United States forced Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan to surrender in World War II because our military followed the recipe for success in war.

Since then, however, our wars have been waged not to win, but to support dubious multinational political objectives that for the most part produced nothing of consequence for the United States, but which took the lives more than 100,000 U.S. military personnel, and the lives of millions of foreign soldiers and civilians.

Our military leadership is inept. Our librat socialist/communist-bent left wing hates the military, the police, and anyone and everyone who does not agree in lock step with their hysterical ant-American rant. The generation that will inherit this country after I am long gone, has been subjected to a progressive left-leaning public education that purposely has made them totally ignorant of American history, mystified by civics, and brainwashed into political imbecility. Those of us who have our heads on straight seem to be powerless to stem the tide of  a degenerate implosion caused by an illegal immigrant assault fueled by power-hungry Demorat politicians , societal suicide, cultural degradation, destruction of liberty, free speech and all that true Americans once held dear.

I fear for my country. But I will do what I can to help change the downward spiral. However, if the country does go down the tubes, and me along with it, I will at least go down swinging.

Foreign influence in our elections via Reddit on

It’s no secret that our elections in the United States are constantly under attack.  Illegal election influence comes in many forms. It could be anything from”hit piece advertising”, campaign finance violations, voter manipulation, foreign influence, hacking electronic voting machines  to basic ballot stuffing.   It’s common knowledge that governments outside the U.S. A. have made found ways to influence our elections.    It’s hard to say who meddles the most.  It’s not always the so called “enemy”.    If I had to make a list, China would be in the top five.  Add Mexico and the other four of  Five Eyes which are  Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom.  Cannot forget  Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Japan, Pakistan, Turkey, etc.  By the way, Yes, our closest allies are just as guilty as the rest.

Russia….still…?

Currently Russia is still being made out like it’s the only country that has tried to influence our elections.   Leading the pack of accusers are the Mainstream Media(MSM)  and the democrats  with their never ending  “spin” on Russia as being the biggest threat to our elections.  Although Russia is a concern, when it comes to the integrity and security of our elections, their focus should be here in the U.S.A..  Americans are the biggest threat to our elections.  What Americans?  The Fascist Left. (*The Fascist Left democrats)

While all the attention is on Russia, Ukraine and unconstitutional impeachment inquiries, etc, the Fascist left may be quietly  creating an environment that helps them cheat in 2020.   That’s a polite way of saying “rigging the election”.  Sometimes I call it “election warming”.  There are many ways to rig an election. An example would be making sure a specific voting machine is used.(tampered or hacked)  Another example  could be sneaking something through legislation that would give their party an “extra” advantage in the next election.   That’s how the democrats gained  control in California.  They rigged the elections. Now they have the super majority in California.  Now the state is being run into the ground.

When I look at how the democrats are running the state I am reminded of 4 junkies trying to hustle cash to cover their drug debt.  I can see them  running a con job with 1 of their cars.

They drive into the path of a moving car and cry whiplash after the car hits them.  The governor is the neck brace wearing idiot in court that was injured.  The secretary of state was driving the car the idiot was in.  The state legislators are the witnesses.  The state AG is the slimy lawyer for the neck brace wearing idiot.  The U.S.A. taxpayers are  the driver of the moving car they drove in front of.(the “mark”)

One thing that I should point out is that democrats often look and act  insane.  That doesn’t mean they’re stupid.   Just remember what happens when the democrats gain control of anything.  If the opportunity arises, they will  change rules and/or laws. They will do  anything  and everything that may  help them  can keep control.  Many of these changes are unethical and some illegal.  Unfortunately, more often than less they go unchallenged.

The Fascist Left also  have Social Media working for them.  We witnessed this on Twitter.  The segregation of Trump supporters wasn’t working good enough to stop the Trump train so Twitter made the decision to stop political advertising .  This will be their excuse to remove other Trump support content on Twitter.   I’ll be surprised if Facebook doesn’t do the same.  Both  share the same “anti-Trump, anti-Right agenda.”  Both being “all they can be” as faithful minions of the Fascist Left.

There is another large social media platform that shares the same ideology as the Fascist Left. I consider them as being one of the main gateways/ hubs to the virtual land of opportunity for anyone who wants to influence our elections. Legally influence or illegally influence, either way, the opportunity is there. I’m talking about Reddit.

Reddit is a online forum/social media platform.  Here are some Reddit facts.

  • In 2018 it ranked 3rd most visited in the U.S.A..
  • In June 2019 Reddit clocked in as the 7th most visited in the world.
  • It has 330 million monthly active users( currently Twitter declined to 269.6 million monthly active users).
  • In 2017 Reddit reported that 54% of it’s users are in the U.S.A..  Basically, Reddit has a ton of traffic.
  • Reddit discriminates against Trump supporters, conservatives or anyone else on the “Right”.  Reddit is aligned with the Fascist left.
  • Because I believe Reddit is breaking various election laws, which would include allowing/aiding a foreign entity to illegally influence our elections.  I consider Reddit to be the armpit of the internet.

Reddit discrimination

I mentioned that Reddit discriminates against Trump Supporters.  We learned this after Reddit unfairly banned all the Qanon subs.  We learned  this when Reddit unfairly Quarantined President Trumps number one online forum/social media/Trump supporter site,  r/The_Donald.  *  Both punished and accused of promoting violence while letting subreddits that do far worse on a daily basis. remain.  Subreddit  r/darkjokes  is a good example..  Racism leads to violence.  Racism occurs daily in darkjokes.  Too racist for me to feel comfortable posting a screenshot.  You can just click on the name

 Reddit is aligned with the fascist left   

I did query(2016 to present date) on people employed by Reddit.  I wanted to see what party they made campaign donations to.  I got 714 hits. Some made multiple donations so their names came up more than once.  Four or five hits were removed because their business had the same name  as Reddit.  No relation.  The end result was that every Reddit employee that was in the 714 hits had all made donations to the democrats.  Zero had made any donations to the republican party.    That’s enough to convince me Reddit is part of the Fascist Left

Reddit Administrators control every subreddit

Reddit employs people to be Administrators(admins).  Each subreddit is ran by moderators(mods).  Mods police their subreddit  and  try remove any content that might be a violation of Reddit’s rules.  Mods are just volunteers.   They are not paid.  Some of Reddit admins exploit and extort the mods.

  • Each  admin has a group of subs they are expected to monitor.  This is what they are paid to do..
  • They have complete control of each subreddit they monitor and have final say on everything.
  • Technically, they are responsible  for all content in their subs..  This includes every upload made by users, every decision made or not made by mods.
  •  Admins are able to ban subreddits, quarantine subreddits,  issue temporary account suspensions  or issue permanent accounts suspensions.
  • Every subreddit has a admin assigned to it.

Registration of certain organizations

Reddit received $300 million from Tencent holdings.  Tencent has many ties  to the Chinese government.   One very obvious one is the the Independent Non-Executive Director of Tencent, Siu Shun Yang.  Yang is a Member of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference(CPPCC) The CPPCC is an organization in the patriotic united front of the Chinese people, an important organ for multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and an important means of promoting socialist democracy in China’s political activities.

Here are additional links that provide more information about Tencent and China’s relationship.

Because of Tencent’s connection to the Chinese government and it’s huge investment in Reddit.  Reddit is “subject to foreign control”  Reddit should have registered with the Attorney General.  This is defined in U.S. Code   Title 18. CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE   Part I. CRIMES Chapter 115. TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES  Section 2386.   Registration of certain organizations.

Reddit’s election related crimes

Now that’s it’s understood that Tencent is a co-owner of Reddit and  that Reddit  subject to foreign control.  It should also be noted that  the change in Reddit’s ownership status from being a domestically owned company to a foreign and domestically owned company also places more restrictions on  Reddit in matters involving elections in the USA.  The Federal Elections Commission regulations prohibit foreign nationals from directing, dictating, controlling, or directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person (such as a corporationlabor organizationpolitical committee, or political organization) with regard to any election-related activities. 

Reddit’s “Ask me anything”(AMA) events that host candidates participating in elections in the U.S.A. caught my attention.   Reddit may not be part of any of the candidates campaigns but,  If during election season a  candidate attends a event where they are the key speaker and discuss and answer questions that are related to their campaign.  it would be considered a “campaign event”.   Every AMA that occurred  and featured a candidate that is actively running for office after Reddit accepted Tencent Holdings $300 million has been a violation of our election laws.

Foreign national as campaign volunteer

Although he or she may not make contributions or expenditures (including advances of personal funds), an individual who is a foreign national may participate in campaign activities as an uncompensated volunteer. In doing so, the volunteer must be careful not to participate in the decision-making process of the campaign. The Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act) and Commission regulations specifically prohibit foreign nationals from participating in the decisions of any person involving election-related activity. For example, a foreign national volunteer may attend committee events and campaign strategy meetings, but may not be involved in the management of the committee.

Definition

The following groups and individuals are considered “foreign nationals” and are subject to the prohibition:

  • Foreign citizens (not including dual citizens of the United States);
  • Immigrants who are not lawfully admitted for permanent residence;
  • Foreign governments;
  • Foreign political parties;
  • Foreign corporations;
  • Foreign associations;
  • Foreign partnerships; and
  • Any other foreign principal, as defined at 22 U.S.C. § 611(b), which includes a foreign organization or “other combination of persons organized under the laws of or having its principal place of business in a foreign country.

How did Reddit violate election laws? Reddit falls under  “foreign national”.  The following would fall under  prohibited behavior by foreign nationals  related to campaign funding and campaign events.

Reddit and it’s admin’s have full control the AMA’s.  They control all context of the event.  They decide what comments, submissions or questions that are acceptable.  They have their rules people have to abide by.  They have the ability to remove anything they want. 

What should Reddit have done different?

 It’s one thing to host an event.  It’s a different thing when they administer and moderate the event.  That’s their crime, administrating and moderating the events.  What they should have done was host the event and let the speaker and campaign administer and moderate the details, comments, questions and rules.

Having foreign investors really isn’t what changes things for Reddit.   It’s the amount in dollars that changes things.  You don’t receive a 300 million dollars and tell the investor  “now go away, we got this”.  The investor is going to want to part of how that money is spent.

Reddit has committed election crimes and will continue breaking the law until the Federal Election Commission(FEC) steps in and shuts them down.

Reddit is a propaganda generating, fascist left website.   It is perhaps the most hateful, bigoted, racist website on the internet.  This is not because of it’s users.  Most of the negativity, hate, election crime activity comes from Reddit admins.  They are the promoters and pushers.  Reddit needs quit being so political.  They have double standards when it comes to enforcing their rules.  Often users receive a harsher punishment for rule violations if they are conservatives.  Punishment decisions  based on persons political preference  is ……lame.

If they continue  this behavior It’s entirely possible that they will do one or all of the following: implode, lose every penny in lawsuits or end up in prison.  What more can you expect from the armpit of the internet.

Final thoughts

*Foreign nationals, companies, governments have been influencing our elections for years.  The path they take is by making large investments in American companies, like Reddit.   Also, they may buy or open a subsidiary  company based in the U.S.A.. There’s more they have to do.   These are 2 examples  This is where more focus should directed when looking for foreign influence….Investment  Election  Influence. DP

*I would also spend some time looking at politicians and upper level government employees with duel citizenship. DP.

*Reddit is jam packed with shady behavior.  Definitely needs some  attention from some  badge packing 3 letter agency of the United States government.

With all that being said.  I have to explain to myself why I still visit Reddit, almost daily, during the slow times of the year.

*Foreign influence in our elections unfortunate reality.  So much so that a person can spend a lifetime writing about it.  It’s almost to the point to where it is easier to find than not finding it.  I barely scratched the surface of the problem.  I mention a couple  a couple of key points.  Fact checked but included a couple person comments that are obvious.  Please share your thoughts in  the comments. “

Respectfully, Deplorable Patriot

There are thousands of individuals that volunteer their time to help make the world a better place to live.  They don’t want money, fame or power.  They won’t sell you a tee shirt or a book about Qanon.  They don’t want your “likes or follows”  Anons only want to leave a world behind that’s a little bit better than when they arrived here.  These are the true heroes of modern times.”

Twitter to ban all political advertising

Jack Dorsey, CEO of  Twitter and self-appointed censor of free political speech, announced on the eve of Satan’s holiday that ALL political advertising  on Twitter is now banned.

In addition, the ban extends t0 election advertising and political issues. Think anti-abortion, pro second amendment, and global climate change skeptics. In addition, it does not take an Einstein to figure out that this policy is aimed directly at President Trump, who uses Twitter to inform citizens of important issues that Twitter and the rest of the left wing, libtard, socialist/communist media cabal ignore.

Twitter will ban all political advertising, the company’s CEO has announced, in a move that will increase pressure on Facebook over its controversial stance to allow politicians to advertise false statements.

The new policy, announced via Jack Dorsey’s Twitter account on Wednesday, will come into effect on 22 November and will apply globally to all electioneering ads, as well as ads related to political issues. The timing means the ban will be in place in time for the UK snap election.

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…🧵

Twitter had previously implemented rules and restrictions for political advertising.

The announcement comes as Facebook is embroiled in a controversy over its decision to exempt ads by politicians from third-party fact checking and from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements. Dorsey explained the motivations behind the change in a lengthy Twitter thread that appeared to include several references and responses to the convoluted arguments that Facebook has put forward in recent weeks.

The organic spread of political messages online “should not be compromised by money”, he wrote. The advanced state of digital advertising technology, including “machine learning-based optimization of messaging and micro-targeting” and deepfakes – fake or manipulated videos that appear real – combined with the pollution of the online information ecosystem with misinformation, “present entirely new challenges to civic discourse”.

“This isn’t about free expression,” he added, in a seeming riposte to the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s recent defense of online political advertising in a speech billed as a “stand for voice and free expression”. “This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today’s democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It’s worth stepping back in order to address.”

Dorsey tweeted another counter-argument to Facebook with an accompanying winking emoji, writing: “It’s not credible for us to say: ‘We’re working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, but if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ad…well…they can say whatever they want!’”

That argument appears to mock Facebook’s recent attempts to justify its decisions to exempt posts by politicians from its third-party factchecking program, and ads by politicians from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements.

Together, the policies have created a situation in which Facebook is simultaneously asserting its commitment to reducing misinformation while allowing incumbent politicians and political candidates to lie in paid campaign ads.

Dorsey called for “forward-looking political ad regulation”, noting that transparency requirements that have been proposed by US lawmakers are “progress but not enough.”

“The internet provides entirely new capabilities, and regulators need to think past the present day to ensure a level playing field,” he said.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called Twitter’s decision “another attempt by the left to silence Trump and conservatives” while Hillary Clinton called it “the right thing to do for democracy in America and all over the world” and the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez deemed it “a good call”.

Daniel Kreiss, an associate professor of journalism and media at the University of North Carolina, argued that companies should focus on restricting the use of personal data in ad targeting rather than banning all political ads, which he said “favors incumbents and media appointed elites vis-a-vis challengers”.

J Nathan Matias, an assistant professor of communication at Cornell University, said that the ban could have a number of unintended consequences, including pushing campaigns to use more bots and “hybrid human-software coordination on Twitter”.

“It’s very hard to define ‘political’ things from non-political discourse,” he added. “If their policies are too loose or their enforcement too clumsy, Twitter could do real damage to public health, the uptake of government services and civic life.”

Obama dines with President Trump-basher De Niro and Chicom-lover Tim Cook

The Daily Mail reports that former President Obama had dinner with TDS-infected actor Robert De Niro and Apple CEO Tim Cook.

From their story:

Former US president Barack Obama met acting legend and vociferous Donald Trump critic Robert De Niro and Apple CEO Tim Cook for dinner in New York on Monday evening. The trio spent several hours eating together at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca.

Left-leaning De Niro campaigned for Obama as president in 2008 and has consistently expressed his support for the former leader.

He has previously stated that Donald Trump ‘should not be president, period’. De Niro infamously gave a speech at the 2018 Tony Awards during which he declared: ‘I’m gonna say one thing. F*** Trump.’

Read the whole puff piece here.

Gee, wonder if Obama and De Niro discussed the lawsuit De Niro is facing in which a female employee charges De Niro with creepy and abusive behavior. The abusive behavior includes leaving her voicemails threatening “you’re f—ing history” and calling her a “bitch” and a “brat.”

And I wonder if Obama and Chicom-lover Tim Cook discussed Cook’s appointment as chairman of the advisory board for Tsinghua University’s economics school in Beijing. This is the same Cook who has come under fire over Apple’s decision to remove an app that let Hong Kong protesters track police movements in the territory, kowtowing to Chinese censors.

Or maybe Obama and Cook discussed the Muslim prisoners in China’s concentration camps who are reportedly subjected to gang rape and medical experiments?

Great dining companions there, Obama. Really impressive.

Antifa is planning a false-flag killing of leftists to remove President Trump

Yesterday, October 20, 2019, Mike Adams reports for Natural News that Antifa, the domestic terrorists, are planning a false-flag event in which Antifa operatives dressed as Trump supporters will “slaughter” a large number of Antifas. In so doing, Antifa hopes the false-flag event will unleash “nationwide political, civil and financial chaos” that the globalists will use to remove President Trump from power or, alternately, collapse the United States if Trump survives.

Adams says that his analysis “is derived from multiple personal interviews, eyewitness accounts, media sources (cited below) and informed familiarity with the history of the communist playbook from which these events are unfolding.”

Below is Adams’ analysis:

  • A sudden increase in the number of paid Antifa terrorists is now being observed in multiple cities across the United States.
  • The increased recruitment of Antifa mobs coincides with a coordinated media campaign to incite mass violence against Trump supporters and the President himself.
  • Deep state operatives such as James Clapper and John Brennan — who masterminded the criminal plot to undermine democracy and overrule the 2016 election — are now “lawyering up” as Bill Barr’s DOJ actions rapidly approach. This speaks to the desperation and urgency of the deep state to initiate mass chaos within weeks.
  • To achieve their goals of a political coup, the unhinged, lawless Left needs a “spark” event to pull the trigger and flip Antifa masses into an enraged, violent mob that will unleash bloodshed on the streets of America.
  • That “spark” event is likely to consist of a massive staged (theatrical) false flag event where high-level Antifa operatives dress up as patriot Trump supporters and slaughter a large number of Antifa protesters. (Charlottesville 2.0)
  • CNN, as usual, will be tipped off to the upcoming false flag shooting to make sure CNN’s cameras capture the event and all its blood and gore. Trump will be blamed for the mass death, and the event will be exploited by the treasonous fake news media to simultaneously demand the arrest or removal of Trump and the immediate nullification of the United States Constitution and its Second Amendment.
  • As this is taking place, globalist financial operators will wage a sell-off war of U.S. currency and U.S. debt in a desperate effort to crash the U.S. banking system, sacrificing New York banks as unavoidable casualties in the war to eliminate Trump and maintain globalist control over not just the United States, but all countries now facing a populist uprising.

Another reason to not have Amazon technology in your home: Workers reportedly watching home security camera footage

Why anyone would put any of this “SMART” technology in their home is their business. You’ll never find it in mine.

Business Insider reports that Amazon workers in India and Romania are watching footage of Cloud Cam home security recordings in order to improve the AI technology. From their report:

Amazon reviews these video recordings to improve the performance of its Cloud Cam, helping it to better distinguish between an intruder and normal household activity. Amazon’s review team has in some cases assessed up to 150 video clips per day that are usually 20 to 30 seconds long, according to Bloomberg.

Amazon only reviews clips that are submitted by Cloud Cam owners for troubleshooting purposes, as well as those from employee testers, according to Bloomberg. However, two of the people Bloomberg spoke with said that footage submitted for review in rare cases included private interactions, such as recordings of sexual activity.

Customers can share a specific clip with Amazon to improve the device’s performance through the Cloud Cam’s feedback option, the company says. When a clip is shared, Amazon says it “may get annotated and used for supervised learning to improve the accuracy of Cloud Cam’s computer vision systems.

Amazon’s terms of service agreement for the Cloud Cam doesn’t explicitly say that the company’s workers may view footage recorded by the camera. It does, however, say that the customer grants Amazon permission to “review your Cloud Cam recordings to provide technical support.”
