by Ethan Huff, via DC Clothesline:

(Natural News) Trouble continues to brew for Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook after a slew of company “fact checkers” recently came forward to say that they’re no longer going to function as minions of propaganda to censor truth on the global social media platform.

According to reports, these individuals were under the impression that their job was to identify actual fake news in order to flag it for removal from Facebook. But what they came to realize is that they were merely being used by Zuckerberg and his deep state cronies to remove truthful information from the platform that contradicts the official narrative.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Residents in Sacramento face fines upwards of $500 for repairing their own car in their own driveway thanks to a tyrannical law.

In the land of the free, every day, local governments and municipalities trample the rights of citizens to do with their own property what they wish. Over the years we’ve seen people face jail time for the length of their grass, arrested for windmills, and even ticketed for growing food. Now, we’ve discovered a law in Sacramento, California that makes it illegal to repair a vehicle in your own garage.

‘Shocked’: Maine Woman Ordered by City to Take Down Pro-Trump Signs

by Danielle Waugh, NECN:

“I guess I’m being stubborn … but I’m not going to back down from what I believe”

A Rockland, Maine, woman says she would rather go to jail than take down her pro-Donald Trump signs.

Susan Reitman has hung two banners on her front gate: One that says “I love Trump” and another that says “He Won, Get over it.”

She received a notice from the city’s code enforcement office a few days ago, asking her to take them down.

“I was shocked,” she said. “This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion.”

Assistant Code Officer Bill Butler said another Rockland resident complained about the signs’ size. The city ordinance states residential signs can be no larger than 2 square feet.

Reitman’s signs are a little larger than 3 feet by 2 feet.

“They’re well over the limit,” Butler said.He said residents need to apply for permits to display signs like that. They are able to follow an appeals process if their permits are denied.

Reitman said she wasn’t aware of the ordinance and feels it should be changed to allow for this kind of political speech.

She has until Friday to remove the banners, or else face a fine between $100-$1,000 a day.

‘Like a Death Blow’: Facebook, Twitter Purge Destroys Free Speech, Tries to Kill Independent Media

from The Free Thought Project:

Facebook and Twitter have destroy thousands of livelihoods, wiped the independent media from their platforms, and dealt a death blow to free speech.

(RT) Some 800 anti-establishment accounts and pages have been yanked from Facebook in a sweeping crackdown the social media giant framed as a fight against spammers. RT talked to those who were targeted in the cleansing.

Among the hundreds of pages and accounts Facebook and Twitter took down were those both on the political left and right, ranging from conspiracy theorists and police brutality watchers, to news outlets with non-mainstream angles, While their content could be at times described as controversial, the bulk of the banished pages boasted large followings and outreach.

The EU is demanding I hand over my personal medical data or I can’t go on holiday there this summer? Here’s why it can get stuffed

from RT:

Israel’s vaccines-for-data deal shows that records governments keep on their citizens are now a highly valuable asset. But what gives states the right to sell our medical data and who’s keeping it safe from being hacked?

Disaster contingency planning is the sort of thing to make any consultant’s mouth water. Dreaming up catastrophic scenarios where things go very wrong is a good way to milk a client by exploiting their fears.

When I worked on Fleet Street, one big newspaper group used to host regular disaster contingency exercises. A number of us would hole up in a remote location, and we would run a shadow operation producing the next day’s edition, away from head office – which in this instance was considered to have been levelled by a terrorist bomb, with all lives lost. (It’s not a far-fetched scenario – the 1996 London Docklands bombing by the IRA just outside Canary Wharf caused several nearby newspaper offices to be evacuated).

Psaki: Domestic Travel Ban for Unvaccinated Not Off the Table

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted that the US would not hesitate to take extreme measures to punish the unvaccinated. At the time of this writing, Biden has not implemented any new mandates since omicron was announced, but there seems to be a bit of foreshadowing as to what will come. There has never been an official domestic travel ban, but Psaki said implementing one is “not off the table.” Psaki actually said the White House had not taken any potential restrictions off the table, as the current administration does not recognize the US Constitution.
