Governments And Social Media Companies Are Collaborating To Censor Anyone That Would Dare To Question Mainstream Media Narratives

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The era of free and unfettered speech on the Internet is rapidly ending. All over the world, national governments are working very closely with social media companies to take control of “Internet news”. Up until recently, the Internet really was a wonderful marketplace of ideas, and ordinary people like you and I were empowered to share information with one another like never before in human history. But now the elite have seen the power that this can have, and they are cracking down hard. The term “fake news” has come to mean any source that would dare to question the official narratives that are being fed to us from the mainstream media, and in reality the push to censor “fake news” is really just an all-out effort to eliminate independent thought. Before the Internet, it was much easier for the elite to control the flow of information, and now they are taking unprecedented measures to control the flow of information in the digital age.

The war to destroy Alex Jones, Part One

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

Rivers of elite revenge are flowing.

THEY are out to get him and drive him into oblivion.

He, and his huge website, Infowars, stand as a threat to the empire they are building, where free speech is a thing of the past and only correct speech that supports THEIR objectives is permitted.

Monday, the coordinated war against Alex Jones escalated along several fronts, within a space of about 12 hours, according to infowars reporter Paul Watson:

Macy’s Parade Security Used to Promote Surveillance and Police State

by Joe Jarvis, Activist Post:

I don’t watch the news often. But the news was playing at the family Thanksgiving gathering. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade was on, and the newscasters were discussing the extreme security measures taken by New York City.

The massive police presence was welcome according to the news. People were reportedly thanking police officers for their roles. The anchors attributed this attitude change to recent terrorist attacks and shootings.

The police chief bragged that every inch of the city was covered by at least one security camera. He chuckled that there is not a corner you could find to escape being filmed.

Print news tried to give the same impression.

To ensure safety, vapor sniffing dogs wandered through crowds while officers watched from above and hid in plain sight. Officers also were escorting each of the giant balloons.

“We have people at high posts. We have observation teams, there will be sniper teams in and around. We will have undercover assets in a lot of different buildings so there’s going to be a lot you can see out there and a lot you won’t see,” NYPD Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan said.

“This beautiful event happens because we are safe. And our thanks to the NYPD for keeping us safe.” de Blasio said.

Paradegoers also showed their appreciation for police: The NYPD marching band and a group of mounted officers got some of the biggest cheers from spectators lined up as many as 15 deep along barricades.

The authorities make sure to push the idea that agents see you without you seeing them. They want everyone to know that embedded amongst the crowds are government spies.

There are plenty of bad laws that these hidden officers and surveillance might enforce. But apart from that, this is just getting people used to the idea of being watched. We don’t know what kind of crazy laws the government might make down the road. And at that point, it will be too late to do anything about the police state. The cameras will see the crime, no matter how trivial. The police will enforce the laws however oppressive.

A scared populace is more likely to accept government control. Rather than be wary of government power, fear makes people welcome the monster into their lives. They don’t realize that the government is often a bigger threat to safety and security than terrorists.

The news and police were reinforcing the opposite of Ben Franklin’s old mantra that if you give up freedom for security, you will get neither. Instead, the news was giving the impression that New Yorkers were gladly trading their privacy for security. They felt better with police everywhere and security cameras covering every inch of the city.

This attitude suggests that everyone is not just vulnerable, but also helpless to protect themselves. The only way to feel secure is to grow the police and surveillance states. With all the recent events, they say, we can’t afford to let our guard down.

But that is exactly how I feel about the government. With all their abuses, we cannot let our guard down to their growing power and omnipresence.

And of course, they ended the broadcast by reminding viewers and New Yorkers, “If you see something, say something.”

Privacy has become suspicious. Everyone has a right to poke and prod around in other people’s business because it is such a dangerous world.

WATCH: Cops Dump 16 Rounds into Unarmed Man for Walking Down the Sidewalk

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Disturbing video captured the moments multiple cops surrounded an unarmed man and dumped 16 rounds into him like a firing squad attempting an execution.

South Gate, CA — Daniel Canizales, 23, is suing the city of South Gate after multiple officers opened fire on him as he walked down the sidewalk—unarmed. On Wednesday, after his attorney announced the lawsuit, video of the incident was released, showing the entirely unnecessary use of deadly force.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Launches Massive Facial Recognition Program

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department recently announced they have adopted a massive biometric system in an effort to fight crime.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has made public a partnership with NEC Corporation of America (NEC) which will allow the department to utilize NEC’s award-winning facial recognition program. According to a press release, the Sheriff’s Department originally made the switch on January 7, but the announcement has only now been made public. The arrangement grants the Sheriff’s Department access to NEC’s Integra ID 5 Multimodal Identification Biometric Solution (MBIS). The MBIS will be managed by the Los Angeles County Regional Identification System (LACRIS) Unit.

The new system will handle criminal identification needs for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, the County of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Department, and 45 additional police departments in L.A. County.

There really is a left-wing media conspiracy: Another secret journalist group discovered

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

The Mainstream Media like to make fun of conspiracy theories. Never mind the facts that:

The MSM’s dismissal-by-derision of conspiracy theories is another instance of the Left’s penchant for psychological projection. It turns out that it is the left-wing media who conspire with each other.

Gargantuan Orwellian Censorship On An Industrial Scale Shows How Deeply Down The Rabbit Hole America Has Fallen

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

With 2018 rapidly coming to a close and one of the top censored stories of the year being the online censorship of not only Conservatives and the independent media but the anti-war left as well, we’d like to begin this story by giving a huge thank you to everybody who has helped ANP remain in this war for the future of America. By reading and sharing our stories and via your incredibly timely donations, you’ve helped us to continue this truly existential battle for America’s future for another year. And despite all of the problems our nation is going through, we as Americans truly have so much to be thankful for. Thank you all.

And while many on both the left and the right complain about the country we live in and the direction we’re headed for many legitimate (and illegitimate) reasons, ANP still being here in November of 2018 going into 2019 is absolute proof that ‘freedom of the press‘ is still alive in America, despite what CNN and the totally controlled mainstream media would like us to believe.

The Clinton Crime Family – Part 1

by Roger Stone, via Lew Rockwell:

Foreign nationals are banned by law from contributing to American politicians’ campaign coffers. They are not, however, banned from contributing to private foundations. According to Ken Thomas of the Washington Post, “Republicans contend that foreign governments donating to a foundation led by a potential U.S. president creates unacceptable conflicts of interest.” (1)

The laws that dictate the exclusion of foreign nationals from donating to the campaigns of American politicians, were put there for a reason; to keep foreign influence from dictating U.S. foreign policy.

The constitutional ban on foreign cash payments to U.S. officials is known as the Emoluments Clause and originated from Article VI of the Articles of Confederation. The text of the clause:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State. (Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution).

The Clinton’s have always pushed legal and ethical boundaries when it came to campaign donations. One only has to look back to the Clinton’s many scandals starting with what was called “Whitewater” back when Mr. Clinton was Attorney General and Governor of Arkansas to current times. But here are two from the last decade. In the summer of 2007, Hillary was forced to return almost $900,000 from fundraisers Norman Hsu, Johnny Chung, and Charlie Tree all convicted of illegal campaign fundraising. In Federal Grand Jury proceedings, Johnny Chung testified that “the White House was like a subway turnstile, you put the money in, and you get in.”

In 1997, a story appeared both in the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times, that “hundreds of thousands of dollars flowed into the Clinton Campaign from Chinese dishwashers who donated $1,000.00 each.”(2) (3) The only problem was that when the Los Angeles Times investigated these dishwashers, it became apparent that most of them either didn’t exist, or that they had no idea they had donated to the Clinton’s. The fundraising illegalities were so extensive that according to U.S. News and World Report senior writer Michael Barone “120 people either fled the country in order to avoid being interrogated by investigators, plead the fifth amendment, or otherwise avoided questions.” “Fourteen guilty pleas came out of that.” “What this shows is that at the very least the Clinton campaign is guilty of not using due diligence in vetting out suspicious donations.”(4)

Another case shows that Hillary Clinton was directly involved in what the New York Times has called “the biggest campaign finance fraud in the history of the United States.” The story, as reported in the Times as well as on CNN goes as follows. Peter F Paul, a Miami lawyer who had been convicted of cocaine possession and fraud, trying to swindle the Cuban government out of $8.7 million, served a 3 year sentence and then moved to Hollywood to make a fresh start for himself as a Hollywood producer and promoter. In February of 2000, Paul met with Hollywood charity fundraiser Aaron Tonken who happened to be one of the Clinton’s top money contacts in Hollywood. Tonkin admittedly was obsessed with celebrities.

In meetings with Hillary Clinton, Tonkin offered a deal. In exchange for donations to Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign, Hillary would give Paul access to President Bill Clinton for business opportunities once Clinton left the White House. In taped telephone recordings at a Federal prison, where Paul was serving out his sentence for fundraising scams, he says this, “it was a growing relationship (Hillary’s and his) I didn’t know where it ultimately would lead, but I suppose not to a good place because all the people that I met around them (the Clintons), that I dealt with in different events, have all gone to prison.”

The crowning event in their relationship was to hold a major fundraising party with hundreds of Hollywood celebrities. In June of 2000 Paul agreed to finance what would be the largest and most lavish political fundraiser ever staged in Hollywood. It was called The Hollywood Gala Salute to President William Jefferson Clinton. In tape recorded conversations between Hillary and Paul, they discuss the event. This is evidence of two criminal offenses committed by Hillary Clinton, in which she clearly violates Federal election statutes. Although the event cost $1.1 million, her campaign entered the cost at $400,000.

According to the New York Times, the $700,000 difference was used to secretly fund Hillary’s Senate campaign. In the end, Hillary was fined $35,000. and Paul was charged with Federal campaign donations fraud. Hillary paid the fine and continued to accept campaign donation money from Paul even though their crime had been exposed. Amazingly the media seemed to give her a pass. Paul has vowed to spend the rest of his life trying to expose what he characterizes as “Hillary’s chronic pattern of corruption.”(5)

In the latest example of questionable fundraising tactics, Hillary Clinton has tried to side step the laws governing foreign donations by using the Clinton Global Initiative (foundation) as a back door, allowing foreign donors to contribute. The Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Foundation, founded in 2001, has raised a sum, according to the Washington Post, approaching $2 billion. Analysis of it’s funds show that 40% of its contributions have come from foreign sources.(6)

The Clinton Global Initiative was created as a spin off of the Clinton Foundation to avoid a conflict of interest during the four years she held position of Secretary of State. As soon as she stepped down from that position, the Clinton Global Initiative was reincorporated back into the Clinton Foundation. Reince Priebus, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee said, as reported by the Washington Post, “Unless Hillary Clinton immediately reinstates the ban on foreign countries giving to her foundation and returns millions of dollars these governments have already donated, she’s setting an incredibly dangerous precedent.” (7) When the Wall Street Journal revealed that the “Clinton Foundation had dropped its prohibition on donations from foreign governments, many thought it was an especially sleazy move, even for the Clinton’s.” (8) As Bloomberg editor John Heilman said: “Their obsession with money…has been a hallmark of their careers.” (9)

The Wall Street Journal reported that “the Clinton Foundation has raised at least $48 million from overseas governments.” (10) The Washington Post has reported that Algeria, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Australia, Norway, and the Dominican Republic are some of the foreign governments that have donated to the Foundation. According to an article in The Federalist posted on March 2, 2015 by Sean Davis, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and Algeria all funneled cash to the Clinton Foundation while each country had business pending before the U.S. government. The Post goes on to report that “In one instance, Foundation officials acknowledged they should have sought approval in 2010 from the State Department ethics office, as required by the agreement for new government donors, before accepting a $500,000 donation from the Algerian government.” The money was given to assist with earthquake relief in Haiti, the Foundation said. At the time, Algeria, which has sought a closer relationship with Washington, was spending heavily to lobby the State Department on human rights issues. Most of the contributions were possible because of exceptions written into the foundation’s 2008 agreement, which included limits on foreign-government donations. (11)

Twitter Can Collect Your Data Even If You Log Out And Delete The App

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Twitter is able to track and collect your online activity data even you have chosen to log out and delete their app. This is all thanks to an obscure and hidden setting that can only be disabled by accessing a particular page on Twitter’s website.

According to Breitbart, Twitter is likely still collecting your data if you have at any time, downloaded their app to your phone. This story was verified by Breitbart by testing Twitter’s data collection on an Apple iPhone, following a tip from banned conservative Twitter users @TheALX. Not only is Twitter neck deep in a censorship campaign, but once they’ve silenced a voice, they will continue to violate that former user’s privacy rights as well.

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:
