Tech giants’ banning of Alex Jones just woke up the whole world to the Orwellian horror of social media

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

The tech giants just committed a massive strategic error by wholesale banning / memory holing InfoWars / Alex Jones into oblivion. Now, they’ve awakened a huge array of outspoken thinkers who, even if they don’t agree with Alex Jones, are now defending his right to speak.

Right now, in real time, YouTube is reportedly banning videos that speak out against YouTube’s censorship of Alex Jones. Seriously. You’re banned from talking about other people being banned. Thankfully, I saw this coming a year ago and began building REAL.video, the free speech alternative to YouTube. Popularity of the platform is exploding, with hundreds of new channels joining each day.

from ZeroHedge:

The West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted to formally seek the removal of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to  mayor John Duran who tweeted: “West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.” Duran then compared President Trump to a dark wizard from Harry Potter known as a horcrux.

Why Has the Magnitsky Film Been Banned in USA & Europe?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The Magnitsky Act Behind the Scenes has been pulled from everywhere. You do not ban a film in Europe and the United States if it is wrong. This is perhaps a huge cover-up that goes really beyond comprehension. The film was funded by ZDF TV in Europe and they have the power to prevent it from being shown despite the fact that they are taking a huge loss. They would not do that unless there was political pressure behind it.

Silicon Valley tech giants team up to destroy Infowars and silence Alex Jones (Video)

by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

UPDATE: YouTube is now joining in on the censorship action, permanently shutting down the popular Alex Jones – Infowars channel. This is a despicable display of collusion to shut down opposing viewpoints.

Facebook has announced that it has removed four pages belonging to Infowars’ Alex Jones for “repeatedly posting content over the past several days” that breaks its community standards.

The social media monopoly said it removed the pages “for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.”

First They Came For Infowars……. Tomorrow We Will All Be Alex Jones: Independent Media Silenced – They Are Coming For Us All Now

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

The same liberal media that has been bitterly whining about their First Amendment right of a free press for the last week, claiming that is somehow endangered because rally attendees screamed #CNNSUCKS at them, are now celebrating the decision by Facebook to permanently remove Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from their platform on the same day that Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars’ six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps.

This comes just days after YouTube removed multiple Alex Jones videos and gave him a community strike for alleged “hate speech,” which is the catch-all excuse being used by Apple, Facebook, and Spotify as their justification to silence him. A YouTube strike effectively prevents Jones from livestreaming his broadcasts on the platform. (I just clicked the Alex Jones Channel on YouTube, and received the message “This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s community standards.”)

#BIGBROTHER on Steroids: YouTube Bans Alex Jones After iTunes, Facebook Remove Content… Next up? Me? YOU?!

Presumed Consent: UK Govt to Make Everyone Organ Donors Unless They Opt Out

by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart:

The UK government has taken one step further towards bringing into effect an ‘opt-in’ organ donation system which will presume a person is an organ donor in moves that one medical ethicist warns could mean increasing donations by “slight of hand”.

Conservative Government ministers are to go ahead with reformations to organ ‘donation’ laws which they said could increase the availability of organs for transplant by 700 per year, reports the BBC.

Police Dept. Ties Annual Record for Shooting People—Dozens Shot in Only 6 Months

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:

A city’s police department has already tied its own annual record for officer-involved shootings—and it is only August.

The Phoenix Police Department set a new record last month and—it was not for the cutest lip sync challenge. PPD officers have shot 31 citizens this year, tying the record set for shootings in one year, and it is only August!

The officer-involved shooting record will undoubtedly be broken, and soon, if the law of averages holds true. Phoenix city leaders are concerned, even commissioning a new study to investigate why the number of officer-involved shootings has seemingly skyrocketed past previous years.

80-Year-Old Grandma Thrown in Jail For Smoking Pot In Her Own Home to Treat Her Arthritis

by John Vibes, DC Clothesline:

Clare County, Mich. – Delores Saltzman, an 80-year-old grandma was recently arrested because she had an expired medical marijuana card and police found a very small amount of cannabis in her home, about the equivalent of just a few joints.

Last month, Clare County Sheriff’s Deputy Ashley Gruno went by Saltzman home and knocked on the door around 9 pm, in search of the woman’s great-granddaughter, reportedly to return a lost phone and ID. The officer immediately smelled marijuana and began interrogating the poor old woman. Saltzman was honest with the officer and told her that she was a medical patient that allowed her card to expire, and she was arrested on that small technicality.

Twitter Suspends Black Conservative For Changing NYT Bigot’s Tweets From “White” To “Jewish” And “Black”

from ZeroHedge:

In response to the New York Times’ decision to stand by their most recent hire – open bigot Sarah Jeong, who really hates white people, men (especially white men), and cops – black conservative Candace Owens carried out a thought experiment we mentioned last week in which we replaced the word “white” with “black” to illustrate Jeong’s animus.

A sample of Jeong’s controversial tweets:

Antifa Bring Their Own Nazi Flag to Patriot Prayer March, Burn It And Claim They’re Protesting ‘Nazis’

Antifa goons brought their own Nazi flag to the pro-America Patriot Prayer march in Portland in order to burn it and claim they’re marching against “Nazis.”

Freelance journalist Mike Bivins caught the scene on camera and reported the masked antifa goons refused to tell him where they got the flag from:
