         "Fake News, stolen elections, Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, Hunter Biden’s laptop, Joe Biden’s health and far more are not conspiracy theories. They are real conspiracies."

AZ State Senator Wendy Rogers: The Media Stole This Election

The fraud will be proven, but the media was in on the steal and they still are today.

In the past, she labeled Bret Baier fake news and demanded a recall of Arizona’s fraudulent electors.

On November 3, 2020, Fox News’s Bret Baier proclaimed that Biden has won Arizona long before the polls had even closed, sending many — still in line — home thinking there’s no longer a point in casting a ballot. A large majority of election day voters were Trump supporters.

The margin of victory in Arizona was only 10,457.

On Thursday, Senator Rogers railed on him again saying that the tragedy in Afghanistan is partially on him for selling out his country. Everything, not just a few things but everything that was true about Biden wasn’t only swept under the rug or ignored. It was denied, it was censored, it was labeled conspiracy theories.

Fake News, stolen elections, Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, Hunter Biden’s laptop, Joe Biden’s health and far more are not conspiracy theories. They are real conspiracies.

While President Trump was shattering records and bringing America back, the fake news media did everything in their power to discredit him and tarnish his name. They hate President Trump because he has an agenda, and that agenda is America First. Unlike Joe Biden’s family, President Trump’s family was the model first family. The media attacked and slandered every one of them.

They are ignoring the Bidens.

        "Chase Bank has gone full blown woke!"

https://justthenews.com/accountability/cancel-culture/cancel-culture-chooses-news-filled-weekend-unleash-its-power

Big Tech, woke finance crack down on Flynn, Gateway Pundit, Berenson in cancel culture purge

In recent days, Twitter permanently banned independent journalist Alex Berenson, Google demonetized The Gateway Pundit from its ad network, and Chase Bank cancelled the credit cards of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

With national attention riveted over the weekend on two major stories — the frantic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan amid its fall to the Taliban and category 4 Hurricane Ida slamming into the Louisiana coast — Big Tech and woke finance dramatically extended the reach of cancel culture with brazen moves to silence and harass three high-profile voices of political and scientific dissent: independent journalist Alex Berenson, popular conservative news and opinion website The Gateway Pundit, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. 

On Saturday, Twitter permanently banned Alex Berenson, who has built a large social media following challenging public health establishment orthodoxy on COVID issues ranging from lockdown to vaccine mandates.

"The account you referenced has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules," a Twitter spokesperson responded to an inquiry from Fox News.

"Goodbye Twitter," Berenson headlined the announcement of his banning on his Substack page.

"This was the tweet that did it," he wrote above a screen capture of the post that apparently triggered his purge from the dominant microblogging platform. "Entirely accurate. I can't wait to hear what a jury will make of this."

In his original offending tweet on the the COVID vaccine, Berenson wrote: "It doesn't stop infection. Or transmission. Don't think of it as a vaccine. Think of it — at best — as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS. And we want to mandate it? Insanity."

Twitter has been criticized for anti-conservative viewpoint bias and censorship, including permanently banning former President Trump following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, citing the platform's policies on incitement to violence.

Twitter has consistently denied charges of ideologically selective censorship of user content.

Meanwhile, on Thursday search and online advertising giant Google took aim at The Gateway Pundit, a conservative online news and opinion site that is ranked in the top 200 of U.S. websites according to Alexa and in the top 50 of English language news websites, according to a study prepared for media industry news site PressGazette.

"Google demonetized the Gateway Pundit from their ad network," the site's founder and editor Jim Hoft reported on Saturday.

"We're emailing you to let you know that we've repeatedly found content on one of your sites that violates our Google Publisher Policies," the search giant notified Gateway Pundit's legal department.

In explaining its move, Google cited two categories of violations: "Dangerous or derogatory content" and "Misreprentative — Unreliable and harmful claims."

"The Gateway Pundit has an outstanding record of accurately reporting the top news stories of the day," Hoft shot back. "Because of our continued success and our honest conservative bent we are regularly censored."

Loss of revenue from Google Ads can be a severe blow to a digital news site, given the platform's commanding position within the online advertising marketplace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Google is truly one of the most dangerous companies in the world today."

The third victim of the weekend purge was former Trump National Security Adviser and director of the Defense Intelligence Agency during the Obama administration Michael Flynn, who posted to his Telegram account a notice from Chase Bank notifying him of the cancellation his credit cards.

"After careful consideration, we decided to close your credit cards on September 18, 2021 because continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company," read the terse update from the Cardmember Services division of Chase, the banking subsidiary of financial services behemoth JPMorgan Chase. 

"Chase Bank has gone full blown woke!" Flynn posted in reply.

       "Meanwhile, state legislatures have introduced and enacted legislation on data privacy, antitrust, and content moderation, while state attorneys general have issued a number of legal challenges alleging anticompetitive business practices."

https://www.wnd.com/2021/08/congress-awol-states-take-big-tech/

Congress AWOL, so states take on Big Tech

Creating new requirements for privacy, content moderation, antitrust issues

Despite calls for increased regulation of the tech industry, Congress has yet to pass any major legislation, leaving it up to the states to take action curbing tech companies’ power and influence.

Meanwhile, state legislatures have introduced and enacted legislation on data privacy, antitrust, and content moderation, while state attorneys general have issued a number of legal challenges alleging anticompetitive business practices.

“With a bit of a vacuum at the federal level, states are looking to step in, whether that’s on content moderation, whether that’s on speech on platforms, antitrust and anticompetitive conduct regulation, data privacy,” April Doss, executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute for Technology Law and Policy, told Protocol last week.

Content Moderation

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation in May prohibiting tech companies from banning or suspending political candidates in the state, imposing fines of up to $250,000 per day a candidate is deplatformed. The law also holds social media platforms liable for certain content moderation decisions, in effect allowing Floridians to sue tech companies for banning or suspending their accounts.

“We took action to ensure that ‘We the People’ — real Floridians across the Sunshine State — are guaranteed protection against the Silicon Valley elites,” DeSantis said in a press release.

Though the law is currently being contested in federal court, similar bills have been introduced in Republican legislatures across the country.

Texas lawmakers introduced a bill backed by Gov. Greg Abbot earlier this month that seeks to classify social media companies as “common carriers” and subject them to similar regulation as public utilities like phone services. The legislation echoes a legal challenge to Google proposed by Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost in June that sought to declare the tech giant a public utility, an argument Justice Clarence Thomas has indicated could hold water.

Utah Republican Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed a bill passed by the state legislature in March that would have imposed substantial limitations on tech companies’ content moderation practices. If passed, the bill would have required social media platforms to notify users when moderating their speech, offer an appeals process for users to contest moderation decisions, and publicize their moderation policies.

Kentucky lawmakers proposed a law in January removing liability protections from social media companies that censor certain types of speech. Lawmakers in Oklahoma and Arkansas also introduced legislation designed to curb perceived political censorship, though the bills have not been enacted.

Antitrust

State attorneys general have brought several antitrust challenges to Big Tech, with Google alone currently facing four complaints brought by states alleging anticompetitive conduct.

Over 30 state attorneys general, led by Utah’s Sean Reyes, sued the tech giant in July for allegedly using anticompetitive tactics in its Google Play Store, such as forcing app developers to use Google’s payment processor for all in-app purchases. A similar complaint filed by app developers against Apple was settled Thursday, with the tech company agreeing to change some of its business practices.

Enjoy this joke...

Chase Manhattan Old Lady
 
A little old lady walked into the main branch of the Chase Manhattan Bank holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young man at the window that she wished to take the 3 million dollars that she had in the bag and open an account with the bank. But first, she said that she wished to meet the president of the bank due to the rather large amount of money involved. After looking into the bag and seeing bundles of $1,000.00 dollar bills which could have amounted to $3 million dollars, he called the president's office and saw to it that the old lady met with him.
 
The lady was escorted up stairs and ushered into the president's office. Introductions were made and she stated that she liked to know the people that she did business with on a more personal level. The president then asked her how she came into such a large amount of money "was it inheritance?" he asked.
 
"No," she replied. He was quiet for a minute trying to think where she could have come into $3 million.
 
"I bet" she stated.
 
"You bet!" repeated the president. "As in horses?"
 
"No," she replied, "I bet on people."
 
Seeing his confusion, she explained that she just bets different things with people. All of the sudden she said "I'll bet you $25,000.00 that by 10:00 am tomorrow your balls will be square". The bank president figured that she must be off of her rocker and decided to take her up on the bet. He didn't see how he could loose. For the rest of the day he was very careful. He decided to stay home that evening and take no chances - there was $25,000.00 at stake.
 
When he got up in the morning and took his shower, he checked to make sure that everything was OK. There was no difference, he looked the same as he always had. He went to work and waited for the little old lady to come in at 10:00, humming as he went. He knew that this would be a good day, how often do you get handed $25,000.00 for doing nothing?
 
At 10:00 am sharp, the little old lady was escorted into his office. With her was a younger man. When the president inquired as to the purpose for being there, she informed him that he was her lawyer and that she always took him along when there was a large amount of money involved.
 
"Well", she asked, "what about our bet?"
 
"I don't know how to tell you this," he replied, "but I'm the same as I always have been, only $25,000.00 richer!" The lady seemed to accept this, but requested that she be able to see for herself. The president thought that this was reasonable and dropped his trousers. She instructed him to bend over then she grabbed hold of him. Sure enough everything was fine. The president then looked up and saw her lawyer banging his head against the wall.
 
"What's wrong with him?" the president asked.
 
"Oh him," she replied, "I bet him $100,000.00 that by 10:00 this morning that I would have the president of Chase Manhattan Bank by the balls."
 
FWIW

        "Estimates are that approximately 150 babies per day are being saved because of Texas Right to Life’s leadership on the Texas Heartbeat Act."

BREAKING: GoDaddy deplatforms Texas Right to Life website that let people report violations of new Texas pro-life law 

Web domain hosting giant GoDaddy is deplatforming a website run by Texas Right to Life through which people can submit tips about violations of the Lone Star State’s robust new pro-life law that protects babies with beating hearts from being aborted.

A GoDaddy spokesman said in an email to the New York Times and The Verge, “We have informed prolifewhistleblower.com they have 24 hours to move to another provider for violating our terms of service.”

~~~~~~~~~

There has been widespread pro-abortion panic after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the law, which lets private citizens sue abortionists or anyone aiding or abetting the abortion of a baby with a beating heart, to go into effect this week. The Supreme Court’s refusal to block the law has effectively ended all abortions after six weeks in America’s second-largest and second-most populous state.

Tonight a Texas state judge also temporarily blocked Texas Right to Life from enforcing the law against Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion business.

“Judge Maya Guerra Gamble’s (D) ruling does not invalidate the new law but rather halts Texas Right to Life and its associates from suing abortion providers and workers at Planned Parenthood clinics under the statute, S.B. 8, that took effect Wednesday,” The Hill explained.

The narrow, temporary ruling does not prevent other Texas citizens from suing those who commit or aid in an abortion, though.

Then make sure godaddy turns into a nodaddy.

If they receive any kind of government funding (federal or local) cut it off.

Ensure all people you know with godaddy accounts cancel them.

Push for a hard boycott of godaddy throughout the US.

Find something illegal they did and take them to court over it.

        “Which part is misinformation? Not generally but specifically?” she asked. “Throughout Europe they aren’t masking young children largely for the reasons cited here."

Mask Tyrants Are Even Flagging Leftist Media, CDC Reports that Prove Face Masking Children Is Stupid

Major media reports questioning masks flagged for ‘misinformation’

An article in left-leaning magazine The Atlantic presenting evidence that school children should not be required to wear a mask is prompting Twitter users to flag it for misinformation and call for a retraction.

In “The Downsides of Masking Young Students Are Real,” Vinay Prasad, a hematologist and oncologist and associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at UC San Francisco, concludes that the “potential educational harms of mandatory-masking policies are much more firmly established, at least at this point, than their possible benefits in stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools.”

A similar story published by New York magazine was titled “The Science of Masking Kids at School Remains Uncertain.” Author David Zweig cites a large-scale study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that found no statistically significant difference in schools that required students to wear masks compared to schools where masks were optional.

Zweig pointed out that the findings, along with other mitigation efforts that have been shown to have statistically insignificant results, “cast doubt on the impact of many of the most common mitigation measures in American schools.”

On Twitter, Dr. Joy Henningsen, a medical news contributor featured in publications such as Business Insider and Yahoo News, “reported” The Atlantic to Twitter for “misinformation.”

“I respected your coverage of the pandemic so much last year,” she wrote. “But you elevating an irresponsible take (ie, presenting it as the “other side”) gives it credibility when it deserves none. Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine I’d have to report a @TheAtlantic post for misinformation.”

She followed through with her threat to flag the story on Twitter and urged The Atlantic to retract it, contending the magazine had made the jobs of health-care professionals “harder.”

“Those of us fighting misinformation online will now have this used against us,” she said. “This article will be shared over and over in dark, uninformed circles. Please do not prize web hits above the truth. I implore you to retract this piece.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Which part is misinformation? Not generally but specifically?” she asked. “Throughout Europe they aren’t masking young children largely for the reasons cited here. Is the continent entirely under the spell of @VPrasadMDMPH and @TheAtlantic?”

CDC statistics, meanwhile, show children generally do no spread COVID-19 and have little risk of any adverse effects. The seasonal flu is more deadly among children than COVID-19, and the swine flu one decade ago was six times more deadly. The survival rate for children under age 20 who get COVID, according to the CDC, is 99.997%.

        "Texans can sue social media companies under the law for discriminating against them, and the Texas attorney general can intervene on their behalf."

https://justthenews.com/government/state-houses/texas-latest-state-crack-down-big-tech-censorship

Texas latest state to crack down on Big Tech censorship

New law signed by Gov. Abbott allows Texans to sue social media companies if they are censored because of their political beliefs. Texas is the latest state to take aim at Big Tech, enacting a law that bans social media giants from censoring content based on political views. 

 
"We will always defend the freedom of speech in Texas,” Gov. Greg Abbott declared as he signed the legislation into law late last week.
 
"Social media websites have become our modern-day public square. They are a place for healthy public debate where information should be able to flow freely — but there is a dangerous movement by social media companies to silence conservative viewpoints and ideas,” he added. “That is wrong, and we will not allow it in Texas." 
 
The Texas Legislature passed HB20 during its recently completed special session. The law requires social media companies with 50 million or more users to publicly disclose their content management practices and policies and expressly prohibits them from targeting users solely because of their political or ideological beliefs. 
 
The law states, “a social media platform may not censor a user, a user’s expression, or a user’s ability to receive the expression of another person based on: (1) the viewpoint of the user or another person; (2) the viewpoint represented in the user’s expression or another person’s expression; (3) or a user’s geographic location in this state or any part of this state.”
 
Texans can sue social media companies under the law for discriminating against them, and the Texas attorney general can intervene on their behalf.
 
Florida recently enacted a law that would have prohibited social media platforms from banning political candidates, but a federal judge has temporarily blocked it.
 
While Republicans focus on preventing censorship, Democrats are targeting Big Tech with pressure to crack down on what they see as miss information on their platforms. And both parties are focused on Big Tech’s anticompetitive and monopolistic practices.

        "This evil manifests very heavily against the pro-life movement. Channels have been banned for promoting adoption over abortion.

Fascist Google Bans Abortion Pill Reversal Treatment Ads

Google is evil. That’s the gist of pretty much everything that has come out of the gargantuan company for the last several years. They’ve been heading in this direction for over a decade, even removing their motto of “Don’t Be Evil” after forming their even bigger parent company, Alphabet, in 2015.

This evil manifests very heavily against the pro-life movement. Channels have been banned for promoting adoption over abortion. Stories about botched abortions resulting in the deaths of both mother and baby have been censored. Now, they’ve banned ads that promote Abortion Pill Reversal treatments, an important option that has been attributed with saving 2,500 babies to date.

According to Lila Rose from LiveAction:

“At the request of abortion activists, @Google has just BANNED all of @LiveAction‘s pro-life ads, including those promoting the Abortion Pill Reversal treatment, a resource that has saved 2500 children to date.”
