Officials stop Dem’s censorship program
by Kit Daniels, Infowars:
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has shut down a proposal by Democrat Commissioner Ellen Weintraub to target the Drudge Report, Infowars, Breitbart and others, stating it cannot “burden the free speech rights of American citizens.”
FEC officials opposed to her plan said it was “premature and counterproductive” because the whole “Russian collusion” narrative lacked concrete facts.
“At this time we do not know all of the facts and cannot support proposals that would burden the free speech rights of American citizens based on incomplete information about foreign activities in the 2016 election,” the FEC said in a statement.

On July 6th I received a STRIKE against my You Tube account for an interview I did with researcher Sofia Smallstorm that was uploaded and posted to You Tube … 22 MONTHS AGO.
On Thursday, You Tube removed the interview claiming that it violated the community guidelines which prohibit “predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, bullying or intimidation.”

In Ohio, House Representatives have made strides in pushing back against the unconstitutional demands that make victims of us all called “Gun Free Zones.” They have passed a bill that would allows those with concealed carry permits to ignore “Gun Free Zones,” something that we should be doing anyway under the protections of the Second Amendment.
HB 233, referred to as the Decriminalization Effort for Ending Notorious Deaths Act, provides for those who are either in the military or those with concealed carry permits could not be found guilty over violating areas claimed as “Gun Free.”
The measure passed the Ohio House on Thursday with strong Republican support by a vote of 65-31.

Facebook video showing a young child brandishing what appears to be a handgun on Chicago’s South Side is raising new concerns about kids and guns.
The video shows three young boys walking at a shopping center at 63rd and Halsted. A driver is heard taunting the boys, telling one of them to show him his gun. The youngster eventually does so.
The video has surfaced at the same time Chicago police say a boy as young as 6 years old is a suspect in an armed robbery in another Chicago neighborhood.
The manager of a restaurant at the shopping center on Halsted says the boys often stop in, asking for food, and she’s worried the one with the gun might kill someone or get himself killed.
“For one, I’m scared, because at this point, he’s a kid, so if he has this gun, someone gave it to him, he’s trying to prove a point, so he may hurt anyone,” said restaurant manager Whitney Holmes.

This is not satire, we’re dead serious. Canada is now criminalizing the use of wrong gender pronouns.
Canada’s Senate recently passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into both the country’s Human Rights Code, as well as the hate crime category of its Criminal Code.
“I have a problem with the policing of our language, when you are going to force the police upon me to have to SUSPEND REALITY to recognize you as whatever you want to be recognized as, there’s a slippery slope here with C-16,” says Dan Dicks from Press For Truth.
Google now says it will block terrorist training content, but isn’t it interesting that Google censored natural medicine websites FIRST?
by Robert Jonathan, Natural News:
Google is not exactly going out on limb with an announcement that it will block terrorist content on YouTube, but its new initiative certainly appears commendable from a national and international security perspective.
In a Google in Europe blog post authored by its general counsel, the search engine behemoth explained that it is adopting four new guidelines for tackling the issue of online extremism that will combine ramped-up technology with the human element.
In addition to boosting its screening software technology to better identify videos that need to be taken down, YouTube will get an assist from its so-called Trusted Flagger cohort of Google-funded independent experts who will help police the platform.
Google is already working with various government agencies to address violent extremism.

Germany has taken its war on “hate speech,” also known as free speech, to the people.
Already Germany has pretty strict laws against citizens using Nazi symbols and denying that the Holocaust happened. Apparently, lawmakers miss the irony of going full Gestapo on citizens for free speech, as offensive as it may be.
But they are not stopping there. The German government has raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful posting on social media.
