Business Insider recently reported in an article that a Biden Administration would be feared by big tech companies like Facebook and Google.
Bill Russo, from team Biden said that Facebook is ‘shredding the fabric of our democracy’ because they choose to allow posts from President Donald Trump labeled as misinformation by the media to be shared by users — whereas Twitter blocked the President’s tweets so users couldn’t retweet him at all.
Here is Russo’s Twitter Rant:
After some pressure on Thursday, Facebook finally limited the spread of Trump’s election posts, rather than just flagging them.
All of this is sending a very simple message to the American People…
Do you disagree with the DNC and Mainstream Media narrative? I’m sorry, but you are “shredding the fabric of our democracy… That’s unsafe, undemocratic, un-American!”
They tell us, “It’s the role of the media and big tech to protect us from that kind of misinformation, our very liberty is at stake!”
The media claims to be looking out for the people by holding big tech accountable and vetting our politicians to make sure they do the same. The media is supposed to have the interest of the people at it’s heart.
The problem is the media, big tech, and the DNC are all wings of the same establishment machine… the media works with politicians, big tech, and other special interests to control the narrative and maintain power/control...
According to the mainstream media, Joe Biden is Big Tech’s worst nightmare. He’s their kryptonite. They say this despite him having more tech executives than tech critics on his transition team. But that’s not what matters, what matters is the perception.
- Joe Biden Gives Big Tech a Different Kind of Washington Problem, Bloomberg
- Big Tech shouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief over Biden, CNN
- Big Tech’s biggest critics are racing to raise money for Biden’s campaign, Washington Post
- Twitter and Facebook warning labels aren’t enough to save democracy, Washington Post
The MSM and big tech organizations are working side by side with the Democratic National Party (DNC) to create the narrative of Joe Biden “taking on big tech” and being on the side of the people.
Their message is that we can all rest easy and go back to not focusing on the White House because this will all be dealt with now by the professionals… by the competent adults this country has lacked for the last four years under the Trump Presidency.
This is a complete inversion of the truth. Big tech has consistently tried to use their influence to control the conversation, not protect our ability to have it.
They seek to be a ‘Ministry of Truth‘ of sorts, dictating what version of the ‘facts’ people are allowed to post and spread. All while telling us it’s for our own good.
The idea of Joe Biden ‘protecting our liberties and democracy’ or ‘taking on Big Tech’ by having social media platforms censor our speech and monitor our interactions makes no sense.
It should be the other way around. Tech companies with speech platforms should be protecting our rights and our privacy to say whatever we want about current events. Including and especially the election.
The act as if they have no bias… Did you hear the Mainstream Media challenge Joe Biden once throughout his entire campaign? On any issue?
From March until the last week of October, Joe Biden got off the hook with taking just several zoom calls a day from his Delaware basement and hitting the hay before 8:30 pm.
When and if he would make an appearance, it was brief, scripted, and no questions were allowed…
Did the media ever question this? No, instead they covered for him – the New York times even insisted Biden shouldn’t have to debate Trump.
“Hey everybody, how are ya?” he asked the reporters.
“Time for a few questions?” a journalist asked.
“No, no,” Biden responded.
If Joe Biden cannot confidently address the people without a script, how is he supposed to negotiate with China, with Russia or Iran? Let alone navigate domestic issues like health care, immigration, and the economy.
The truth is he won’t be doing any of that. Joe Biden is a prop put up by the DNC. Designed by think tanks to be an easy pill to swallow for those who don’t like Trumps behavior on twitter, but are still skeptical about left-wing policies like the Green New Deal or Universal Healthcare (including for Illegal Immigrants).
Joe Biden is being sold as a safe, center of the road, blue collar candidate. But that is just the shell, the projection of what the media thinks we feel is safe.
Big tech is playing their part by censoring conservative media. This opens the door for the Media to gas light the American People into believing that Joe Biden legitimately beat Donald J. Trump.
“Biden won! That’s just the facts.” According to the New York Times, it’s the media’s sole right to declare who wins an election anyway. If you think anything else, you’re basically Alex Jones and going in a social media timeout, permanently.
This is the way things are going from now on, so you better just get used to it.
If you can tune out all that wacky right wing conspiracy talk about liberty and freedom then you have the chance to sit back and be part of history…
A President with the most votes ever cast!
The first female minority Vice President!
Coming in at the brink of our collapse into darkness to save our nation, our soul… our earth!
We are expected to believe the man whose rallies looked like this…
Managed to get more votes than Obama and Trump, even Bernie, whose rallies looked like this…
Trust your gut. Despite what the media is telling you, there is a statistical case against a Biden win…
Part 1 of 4: Turnout…
Part 2 of 4: Outperformance vs Obama…
Part 3 of 4: “Biden-only” ballots…
Part 4 of 4: Absence of Mail-In Ballot Vetting…
If you were to get your information from the Media though…
…All is well. It’s over. Time to give it up.
Even Fox News has ditched Trump – something made apparent early on election night when they called Arizona despite other networks saying it was too close to call. The way they have distanced themselves makes it seem like a premeditated decision from the network. Maybe that’s why MSNBC topped Fox News on Saturday in the ratings, capping their highest-rated week ever…
Either way, it’s time we stopped pretending that our politicians will save us from this. It is here. The days of true meaningful freedom of speech are ending, and the tech companies already have the model (which they helped design) to transition our society into.
This is where COVID-19 becomes essential to this story.
Come back next week for the second half of this report…
POLL: Voters have increasing doubts about Biden health, mental fitness
A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows just 44 percent of voters approve of Biden’s job performance, and 46 percent say he’s “mentally fit.”
Voters have increasing doubts about the health and mental fitness of President Joe Biden, the oldest man ever sworn into the White House, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
Only 40 percent of voters surveyed agreed with the statement that Biden “is in good health,” while 50 percent disagreed. That 10-percentage-point gap — outside the poll’s margin of error — represents a massive 29-point shift since October 2020, when Morning Consult last surveyed the question and found voters believed Biden was in good health by a 19-point margin.
Asked whether Biden is mentally fit, voters are almost evenly split, with 46 percent saying he is and 48 percent disagreeing. But that negative 2-point margin stands in stark contrast to Biden’s numbers lastOctober, when voters believed he was mentally fit by a 21-point margin.https://bea6cc9e18caeb2dfe24debcd71c41b2.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
The poll questions are part of a long battery of attributes about which voters were asked to rate Biden — the same battery employed multiple times during Donald Trump’s presidency, and asked about both candidates last fall, prior to the 2020 presidential election.
The new polling comes amid persistent questions about whether Biden — who turns 79 on Saturday — will run for reelection in threeyears and as Democrats have grown increasingly concerned with the party’s gerontocracy. Biden says he will run again, but some longtime allies have raised doubts. Even “Saturday Night Live” recently ribbed Biden over whether he was “lucid.”
The most intense scrutiny of Biden’s age and his verbal miscues had previouslybeen limited to conservative news outlets and social media, said Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster who has surveyed for Biden.
“They’re running a very aggressive campaign on this, and it’s bleeding over into the mainstream a little,” Lake said. “By and large, the people who believe this are Trump supporters anyway or they’ve been exposed to the right-wing disinformation machine.”
To Lake’s point, the Morning Consult poll generally shows that Trump voters and Republicans generally believe Biden is neither physically nor mentally fit, and Biden voters believe the opposite. However, independents — by a margin of 23 points — don’t agree that Biden is mentally fit now.
Before last year’s election, independents and voters overall believed Biden was more physically and mentally fit than Trump, whose mismanagement of the pandemic damaged his campaign as the Biden campembraced social distancing and mostly eschewed large events.
But with Trump gone as a foil for now, Biden is more in the spotlight than ever, and his overall approval rating began collapsing with the bloody withdrawal from Afghanistan. The ravages of the coronavirus Delta variant, congressional squabbling and public perceptions about the economy also contributed to Biden’s troubles.
The new Morning Consult poll shows 44 percent give Biden a positive job approval rating and 53 percent disapprove. Biden’s approval rating is essentially unchanged over the past two weeks — it was 46 percent last week and 45 percent the week prior — since the passage of the infrastructure bill in Congress earlier this month.
A recent Harvard-Harris poll found that 53 percent of voters said they had doubts about Biden’s fitness and 47 percent did not. Asked if Biden is too old to be president, 58 percent said he was and 42 percent said he was fit enough.
PolitiFact Refuses to Correct Claim that Rittenhouse Illegally Possessed Gun After Judge Dismisses Charge
The “fact-checking” outlet Politifact is defending its August 2020 claim that Kyle Rittenhouse’s possession of an AR-15 was not “perfectly legal,” even though the gun charge against Rittenhouse was dismissed by Judge Bruce Schroeder.
On August 28, 2020 – just three days after Rittenhouse had used the rifle on the streets of Kenosha – Politifact Wisconsin tweeted, “A Facebook post says, ‘At 17 years old Kyle (Rittenhouse) was perfectly legal to be able to possess that rifle without parental supervision.’ That’s False.”
The tweet linked to a PolitiFact article, which said:
In an Aug. 27 post, one Facebook user said it was “perfectly legal” for Kyle Rittenhouse — who was arrested in Antioch, Ill., after fleeing Wisconsin — to brandish an assault-style rifle on the streets of Kenosha.
“Carrying a rifle across state lines is perfectly legal,” the poster said. “Based on the laws I can find of this area at 17 years old Kyle was perfectly legal to be able to possess that rifle without parental supervision.”
The PolitiFact article zeroed in on the phrase “perfectly legal” and opined, “Is that true? State law suggests not.”
Whether Rittenhouse violated Wisconsin law by possessing a firearm underage is the subject of ongoing litigation. But the Facebook post claimed that it was “perfectly legal” for the teenager to carry an assault-style rifle in Kenosha.
At best, that’s unproven. At worst, it’s inaccurate. Either way, we rate the post False.
On November 15, 2021, Breitbart News noted that Judge Bruce Schroeder dismissed the firearms charge against Rittenhouse, siding with the Defense’s claim that the law is only applicable if Rittenhouse carried a Short Barrel Rifle (SBR).
The prosecution admitted that Rittenhouse was not carrying an SBR.
Despite the dismissal, PolitiFact is standing by its claim that it is “false” to say Rittenhouse’s possession was “perfectly legal.”
The day after Schroeder dismissed the gun charge PolitiFact added an editor’s note to its piece. The note pointed to Associated Press reporting, Wisconsin lawmakers’ intentions, and claims that PolitiFact knew all along that there was a possible exception for rifles.
The editor’s note ended by saying, “These subsequent events show the grey areas of local gun laws — hardly a case of something being ‘perfectly legal.’ Our fact-check remains unchanged.”
