    I have been writing while traveling about Australia. While working on an article, I searched for AR15 style pistols. The search found the information I wanted to access on ar15.com. I attempted to access ar15.com, but repeatedly received the error message:It seemed odd. I contacted a source I have in Australia, and asked them to see if they could access the site.  They verified the lack of access and more. They sent me a link to a news article about telecommunication companies acting in concert to censor information from Australian customers. From smh.com, 21 March 2019: Dozens of websites...

    The 2020 election is more than a year away, but Big Tech is already at work to silence conservative voices. Fox News contributor Sara Carter is among those being ‘shadow banned’ on Twitter. She’s also been hit hard on Facebook. “It’s incredible,” Carter said on The Todd Starnes Show. “I think the war has already begun as far as the company’s shadow-banning conservative websites or conservative thinkers.” Listen to the entire interview on the Todd Starnes Show Podcast.

  • Sen. Josh Hawley Introduces ‘Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act’ to Stop Big Tech Bias

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | June 19, 2019 | Cassandra Fairbanks
    Republican Senator Josh Hawley has introduced a bill aimed at stopping censorship on social media platforms based on political ideologies. The ‘Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act‘ seeks to remove protections granted by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act if platforms are not acting neutral in regards to political views. Currently, platforms cannot be held responsible for user-posted content, as they are not considered publishers. As these companies become more political — and take an editorial stance, many have called for these protections to be stripped.

    On Monday morning, New Day aired a portion of an interview between CNN Newsroom anchor Poppy Harlow and Google’s CEO Sundar Pinchai. They discussed everything from China to data privacy, but Harlow seemed intent to focus on YouTube’s policies on “hate speech.” After the interview concluded, Harlow then turned attention to the videos conservative YouTube comedian Steven Crowder and host of Louder With Crowder, made about Vox journalist Carlos Maza:

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand — A Christchurch businessman who shared a video of worshippers being slaughtered at a New Zealand mosque was sentenced on Tuesday to 21 months in prison. Philip Arps had earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing the video, which was livestreamed on Facebook by a gunman on March 15 as he began killing 51 people at two mosques.

    I read with interest a recent article by Poynter Institute, a nonprofit journalism organization, entitled, “Not naming mass shooters (much) is now the norm.” It was accompanied by the following tweet from Poynter’s account: “For an industry that is often criticized for being slow to change, this development is remarkable.” “In a pivot from coverage of years past, the shooter’s name often isn’t mentioned at all,” notes Poynter’s Kelly McBride. “In the small number of stories where journalists deem the name relevant, it usually appears one-third of the way into the story. Suspect names rarely appear in headlines, teasers or...

    Acts 17 Apologetics ^ | June 16, 2019 | David Wood
    The MercifulServant channel is the top Muslim channel on YouTube. After YouTube announced its latest crackdown on "hate speech," MercifulServant wasted no time in encouraging Muslims to mass-flag channels that are critical of Islam, in order to get them banned. MercifulServant's subscribers replied by flagging David Wood's videos (along with videos by the Apostate Prophet, Abdullah Sameer, and others) and by asking YouTube to deplatform Acts17Apologetics. Will the new campaign of "censorship jihad" be successful? David Wood discusses the issue.

    People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things. But apparently, there's one thing users won't find on the app -- and that's tolerance. It was supposed to be a harmless site, a place for swapping recipes and planning kitchen remodels. Now we know: even the most innocuous platforms aren't immune from Big Tech's censorship. And if that's the case, conservatives are in trouble. Because the problem just got a whole lot worse than we thought. Eric Cochran was an employee of Pinterest, a software engineer. Like a lot of conservatives in the online world, he kept his views to...

    In a recent poll for “Axios on HBO,” 55% of American women say they would prefer to live in a socialist country over a capitalist country. This week on “Problematic Women,” we discuss why women are embracing socialism and what can be done to stop this trend. Also, we break down why freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says members of Congress, despite already making $174,000 a year, deserve a pay raise. We crown Yale University graduate and future Justice Brett Kavanaugh law clerk Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld Problematic Woman of the Week. And we discuss these topics: — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had...

    Don't be fooled by the Americans behind the camera. In today's Hollywood, there's one director -- and that's China. As important as U.S. audiences are, filmmakers know there's a bigger one. And they're willing to do anything they can to tap into it, even if it means becoming co-conspirators with one of the most evil censorship operations in the world. It's the biggest partnership no one knows about, and according to some experts, the most dangerous. The majority of Americans probably have no idea when they buy a ticket to the latest blockbuster that the film they're about to see...

    Twitter suspended the account of David Neiwert, a reporter for Daily Kos and author of the book Alt-America, on Tuesday, making him the latest journalist covering white supremacists and the far right to be hit with a temporary ban. Neiwert said in a phone interview he was banned because the top image on his Twitter profile included an illustration from his book cover, which featured Ku Klux Klan hoods atop a series of stars from the American flag. Twitter put a notice on his suspended page, reading: “@DavidNeiwert's account is temporarily unavailable because it violates the Twitter Media Policy.” The...

    This week, The New York Times ran a massive piece detailing the supposed radicalization of one Caleb Cain. Cain moved from political liberalism toward self-ascribed “tradcon” status from watching YouTube videos. The New York Times charted this nefarious move by following those videos. The suggestion by the Times was simple: If you watch typical conservative content hosted by people like me, you will eventually end up watching material hosted by alt-right figures. The only solution, presumably, would be for YouTube to downgrade material the Times dislikes. This attitude isn’t only springing from the Times. Axios chief technology correspondent Ina Fried...

    Author, filmmaker, and lawyer Mike Cernovich said that a review of Google’s internal emails via the discovery process in an ongoing anti-discrimination lawsuit against the company will reveal its hatred of Christians and conservatives throughout its organization. He offered his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Marlow invited Cernovich’s comments on the latest developments in the aforementioned anti-discrimination class action lawsuit filed against Google. “This is actually fantastic news and a huge legal development,” replied Cernovich. “Maybe a lot of people don’t realize what discovery is. Discovery is a process whereby a lawyer...

    "A week after Steven Crowder’s bullying of a Vox journalist pitted conservative media against Big Tech, it’s official: Crowder has won." That was the very sad news that left-leaning Vice News relayed to its "progressive" readers on Tuesday. The YouTube censorship crackdown on Steven Crowder's Louder With Crowder channel completely backfired. Rather than hurting him via demonetization even though they admitted he violated no YouTube policy, the conclusion of the news site that's having its HBO show cancelled was that it has only made him stronger.
