‘THE SMOKING GUN’: Google Manipulated YouTube Search Results for Abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

Alternative Media Companies Unite in Inspiring Rally Against Corporate, Gov’t Censorship

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Over the weekend, members and owners of multiple alternative media outlets gathered in Houston, Texas to discuss the heavy hand of corporate and government censorship and how to stop it. The meeting was a success with the common theme of peaceful voices refusing to be silenced.

For those who remember, on October 11, 2018, Facebook and Twitter — without warning or justification — deleted the pages of Free Thought Project and Police the Police which had over 5 million followers. During this purge, they also removed hundreds of other pages who had massive followings like the Antimedia, Cop Block, and Filming Cops.

HOW MISDEMEANORS TURN INNOCENT PEOPLE INTO CRIMINALS

by Jordan Smith, The Intercept:

GAIL ATWATER AND her two young children were driving home from soccer practice in March 1997 when they realized that a rubber bat that was usually affixed to the window of their pickup truck was missing. It was a favorite toy of Atwater’s 3-year-old, Mac, so the trio turned around, retracing their route to see if they could find it.

Atwater slowed to a speed of roughly 15 miles per hour as she cruised through Lago Vista, the lakeside bedroom community just northwest of Austin, Texas. And although state law required passengers in the front seat of a truck to wear a seatbelt, Atwater told her kids they could unbuckle themselves so they could look outside for the toy. There was no one else on the road, and she was driving very slowly.

Man Calls 911 for Help, So Police Show Up and Steal His Car

from The Free Thought Project:

Civil asset forfeiture is prevalent across the nation but very rarely talked about.

The presumption of innocence is a fundamental principle of our legal system that ensures that “the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies.”

However, this principle has been under threat in recent years by police departments across the United States and the widely practiced policy of civil asset forfeiture. When a property is determined, by the police, to be involved in a crime, it is seized and held by the police department.

Often times, the property is held indefinitely only to be auctioned or released at a very high cost. As a recent article in The Detroit News points out:

Man bills the US government for his Corvette. This is how they responded…

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

Last week I decided to use my tax savings to pay the rent for US government workers affected by the shut down. Emails keep coming in from furloughed federal employees having a tough time. And money keeps going out.

As I’ve been highlighting over the past week, the government shutdown affects many more people than the 800,000 furloughed government workers. Some contractors and subcontractors might not even know their salary ultimately stems from government funding.

So it’s really millions who aren’t receiving a paycheck.

“Internet of Roads” — Colorado Goes All-in With Increased Radiation and Surveillance

by BN Frank, Activist Post:

Evidently, a test run for smart pavement in Colorado that I reported on back in May 2018 was successful enough to give it the all systems go.

A plan to turn a portion of Interstate 70 into a roadway where cars communicate with street lights, signs and other internet-connected things just tripled to more than 500 miles.

Colorado’s “internet of roads” project will now extend to highways that reach from Pueblo to Wyoming, and Sterling to Utah, after the state Department of Transportation was awarded a $20 million federal grant earlier this month.

DHS Has Equipped 400 Police Departments With Military-Grade Sound Cannons

by MassPrivateI, Activist Post:

A recent article in the Mohave Valley Daily News revealed that DHS is using grant money to equip Arizona police departments with military-grade sound cannons or Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRAD).

The Bullhead City Police Department received $54,000 in grant money to purchase a 100X model and a 450XL model LRAD.

The mass media has known about DHS’s plan to equip police departments with LRADs for more than a decade but has remained largely silent.

Cop Arrested Because He Didn’t Know He Was on Film When He Kicked a Handcuff Kid in the Face

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A Florida cop had no idea he was on video when he made the decision to kick a handcuffed teen in the face as he lay helpless and incapacitated on the ground.

Miami, FL — A Miami-Dade police officer has been arrested on charges of battery only because of a vigilant citizen who decided to film the police that day. Because Sgt. Gustavo Del Los Rios, 38, was recorded on video kicking a handcuffed boy in the face, he is now being held accountable for his crimes.
