       Because social media has chosen to be actively involved with "content," the conservatives have wanted to do this for a long time. They have been stifled however by the Democrats, who act as their partners. Maybe Israel can now show them how it is done.


Israel pushing plan to strip Facebook of legal protection

Israeli Communications Minister reportedly poised to unveil plan which could deprive social media networks of key legal protection.

The Israeli government is poised to move forward with a program aimed at severely curtailing social media networks’ legal protection, according to a report by Channel 12 Sunday evening.

The plan is reportedly being drawn up by the Communications Ministry at the behest of Communications Minister Yoaz Hendel (New Hope), who is said to be pushing for steps to challenge the right of social media networks to avoid prosecution over the content published through their systems.

Currently, Facebook, Instagram, and other large social media networks are treated as communications service providers – like telephone networks – which are not held accountable for content, rather than as publishers, who because of their discretion of determining which content is published can be held liable in some legal cases.

Most countries currently extend some degree of legal protection from prosecution over content to social media networks.

Under Hendel’s plan, however, a committee will be established by the Communications Ministry to determine whether social media outlets should lose their protection as utility networks and instead be treated more like publishers.

In addition, the committee is expected to be empowered by Minister Hendel to determine whether social media outlets can be obliged to reveal details regarding their protocols regarding censorship and the closure of accounts for violating company policies.

While the committee’s purview will include social media outlets generally, according to Sunday’s report, the Communications Ministry’s focus is concentrated on Facebook.

The social media giant has come under greater scrutiny recently, following a whistleblower’s scathing critique of the company and growing calls by lawmakers in the European Union to regulate the platform.

        "President Donald Trump was censored 625 times from May 2018 to January 2021 while Joe Biden was censored zero times."

CensorTrack With TR: Big Tech Censors GOP Congressmen TONS More Than Democrats, 54-1

It’s Episode Seven of MRC’s new video series, CensorTrack with TR. This week we talked about the Free Speech America study which reported that Big Tech censors GOP congressmen by 54 to 1 more than Democrats.   

Big Tech censorship is omnipresent in the world and political sphere at large. There has been an uproar over online censorship against conservatives. The main targets have included individuals who aim to make an impact in the conservative movement through their own organization or political platform.

The American Principles Project is a conservative group that focuses on the importance of family and protecting parents and children from the attacks of wokeism and progressivism in the 21st century. With no warning or notice, YouTube shut down its eight year old account. The account has since been restored but the initial decision still holds impact.

Congresspeople have also been censored which limits their ability to reach new voters and gain support for their political platform. President Donald Trump was censored 625 times from May 2018 to January 2021 while Joe Biden was censored zero times. Twitter deleted content from Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) both senators had their YouTube accounts suspended.

       “I created TRUTH Social and Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced,”


Trump Announces Launch of His Own Social Media Platform That Will “Fight Back Against the Tyranny of Big Tech” – CLICK TO JOIN THE WAITING LIST

President Trump has officially announced that he will be launching his very own social media platform, which will be called ‘TRUTH Social.‘ The much-anticipated service is expected to go online sometime in “early 2022” and is meant to be a direct assault against Big Tech’s crippling censorship that has continuously ramped up since Trump was booted off of the internet 10 months ago.

But, great things come to those who wait – the ‘Big Orange Meanie’ will FINALLY, once again, be free to melt liberal snowflakes on a daily basis.

“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced,” Trump said in the announcement.

Trump will serve as the chairman of the newly-formed Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), which will oversee operations of TRUTH Social. The group explained that the platform will relentlessly ‘fight back against ‘Big Tech,’ and compete directly against other social networks that operate within the current ‘liberal media consortium,’ which has used its unmitigated power to silence opposing voices and ideas online.

‘This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech.

Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!’ 

The TRUTH Social app is currently available for pre-order on the Apple App Store, with plans for a beta version for testers sometime in November. After the testing is finished, a nationwide public launch is expected in the first quarter of 2022, according to the TMTG announcement.

Sign up for the pre-order list here: Apple App Store PRE ORDER LIST

Google Play pre-orders should be available soon – check back for updates!

Here is some of the description of the app and what they are calling their ‘big tent approach to conversation that welcomes all points of view for an open and honest discussion.


Along with TRUTH social media service, Trump’s new group also plans to introduce a subscription video service called TMTG+, which will feature a slew of America-first, ‘non-woke’ content that should provide a much-needed breath of fresh air for people who want to get away from the predominant liberal wokeness that pervades all aspects of everyday life these days.

The TMTG+ subscription will include original entertainment shows, news, podcasts, and more.

Trump’s epic move into Big Tech’s arena follows his coordinated removal and subsequent banning from essentially every social media platform on the internet, most notably Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.


Months before the full launch, TMTG is already expected to have an initial valuation that checks in at over $1 billion, according to the Daily Mail.

         "That people are even having this discussion shows how far from Godliness the world has sunk. The only thing interesting about this story is how so much of social media is idiotic and plays with censoring like little girls who play with dolls."

Instagram Silences Biologist for Posting Evidence That Trans "Women" are Stronger Than Women

From the people who constantly tell you to “follow the science” comes another piece of evidence that they aren’t concerned with any kind of scientific thought. This one comes from the folks at Facebook-owned Instagram who have now decided that censoring an actual biologist posting factual findings is acceptable.

His sin? He posted a fact about strength differences between the sexes.

Colin Wright is an evolutionary biologist and managing editor of Quillette. On his Instagram, he posted the results of a study showing the strength advantages of men over women in various activities.

The study, in particular, has to do with measuring the strength of transgender “women” over actual women. Titled "Transgender Women in the Female Category of Sport: Perspectives on Testosterone Suppression and Performance Advantage", the research found that even with hormonal suppressants, men who identify as women see their strength “only minimally reduced when testosterone is suppressed” even after three years.

This study was published before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

This study was published in the Sports Medicine journal where it was recommended that sports facilitators consider these strength advantages before allowing these “women” to compete.

Wright pointed out that a similar test was carried out in the U.K., and they found the same results. This study was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Wright pointed out that the first author listed in this study is a transgender individual.

This is what Facebook/Instagram is now considering “hate speech.” As Wright pointed out in his tweet showing his post’s removal, the chart he posted goes against the social media giant’s guidelines on “hate speech or symbols.”

How merely pointing out the results of a scientific study that shows strength differences between men and women is hateful was not elaborated on by Facebook/Instagram and Wright said that the company did not allow him to appeal the removal of his post.

      "When asked if the videos indeed contained controversial content justifying removal, Piatov said there was none, adding “A false fact is not reason for a deletion.” Otherwise, many video statements made by government authorities would need to be taken down as well."

German Court Finds YouTube's Removal of Videos About COVID Was Illegal and YouTube Must Restore the Videos

German actors expressed their thoughts and feelings about the China coronavirus on YouTube, unfortunately, YouTube didn’t like their thoughts and so they were censored.  But the courts in Germany decided that YouTube is not the purveyor of truth and mandated no more censorship from YouTube.

In Germany, a group of actors expressed their opinions of COVID and the government’s actions related to COVID:

Dozens of prominent German actors have banded together as part of the "allesaufdentisch" (everything on the table) freedom of expression campaign to demand a more open discussion on the Coronavirus and the controversial government policies, rules and regulations. Their statements were posted in the form of short videos on YouTube.

In recent months, views critical of government Corona policies and vaccines have been suppressed by the major media.


Each actor posted a YouTube video criticizing the current suppressive policies. 

German actor Filipp Piatov had much to share about YouTube’s actions:

When asked if the videos indeed contained controversial content justifying removal, Piatov said there was none, adding “A false fact is not reason for a deletion.” Otherwise, many video statements made by government authorities would need to be taken down as well.

YouTube “no Truth Commission”

“YouTube is not a factchecking platform, not a Truth Commission that gets to decide what’s right and what’s wrong,” said Piatov. “Who is YouTube? Is it a University? Is it a panel of virologists who sit and watch all these videos and say this one, from the 100 million that got uploaded, we’re going to delete?”

Yesterday a German court ruled against YouTube.

        "I am now fighting a T-Cell Lymphoma as a result of the degraded MRNA Protein Spike via dendritic reaction, called by Pfizer a waning immunity!"

Twitter Censors Thread From Entrepreneur Who Regrets Taking the Vaccine

Twitter has censored a thread in which Michael Robison explained that he regretted trading “my solid health, for a temporary freedom to travel and freedom from being criticized.”

Robison — an investor, entrepreneur and the founder of SPARTN Monkey Rescue — had posted his personal story about his health declining after taking the COVID vaccine and warned people to “THINK, STUDY & BE AWARE” before getting it themselves.

Robison continued on to say “the CDC, Pfizer, Moderna and J&J know that the instability of IVT use of MRNA is accompanied by the bodies clearing of the Inert 19 Protein Spike by the immune system. When it leaves the cell structure compromised after insertion & clearing…. It results in autoimmune issues….

“One such issue is the risk and causation of severe results such as Leukemia and T-Cell Lymphoma. Another common long term effect is autoimmune disorders that impact the skin…. And require life long maintenance and treatment…” the thread continued. “All such issues and cases have been consistently reported to VAERS which is co-managed by the CDC & FDA…. But no attention or research has been prioritized or funded for this repository of information!”

“My caution is this…. Be aware. As late as 2018 all of the groups involved were still convinced that MRNA was still far too unstable for use in vaccine distribution. This vaccine is the largest form of a clinical trial in the history of mankind,” Robison wrote.

“I am not anti-vaccine… but I will caution…. Proceed with care!!! Police cars revolving light I am now fighting a T-Cell Lymphoma as a result of the degraded MRNA Protein Spike via dendritic reaction, called by Pfizer a waning immunity! It is not truly a safe precaution for #COVID19,” Robison wrote.

He concluded by saying, “my caution is this…. Be aware. As late as 2018 all of the groups involved were still convinced that MRNA was still far too unstable for use in vaccine distribution. This vaccine is the largest form of a clinical trial in the history of mankind.”

Soon, the first post of the thread had amassed over 100 retweets — and was noticed by the censors.

First, Twitter slapped on warning on the tweet claiming that it is “misleading” because health officials say that the vaccines are safe for “most people.” They also took away the ability to like, comment or share it.

       "Facebook has rejected ads for a class dealing with anti-Semitism and Jewish identity, citing “sensitive social issues” that could influence elections"

       Facebook of course would never do anything that might influence American elections. I guess you can't say things like, "anti-Semitism is bad," or "anti-Semites are going to be in terrible trouble when judgment comes," because it might influence American elections.

Facebook rejects ads for class teaching how to combat anti-Semitism

Facebook has rejected ads for a class dealing with anti-Semitism and Jewish identity, citing “sensitive social issues” that could influence elections or upcoming legislation, according to a report by eJewishPhilanthropy.

The class, “Outsmarting Antisemitism,” is being offered by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), a Chabad organization that offers adult Jewish courses on Jewish history, law, ethics, philosophy and rabbinical literature.

The four part class aims to “examine the roots” of the “ancient hatred” of anti-Semitism. It will discuss anti-Semitism and give students strategies on how to combat discrimination against Jews with “purpose, positivity and pride.”

Over 450 Chabad emissaries are expected to be involved with the worldwide course. Fifty instructors and Chabad centers attempted to run ads on Facebook. The social media giant rejected all of them, citing “sensitive social issues.”

JLI requested a review by Facebook’s ads manager but Facebook turned them down.

While Facebook has come under scrutiny from Jewish and watchdog organizations for failing to remove extremist content from its platform, the social media giant has also been increasingly criticized for removing pro-Israel or Jewish accounts with little notice, some that have been hacked with anti-Semitic material, with the onus on the page's owner to prove they didn't post the hateful content.

        Texas Governor Gregg Abbott: "It's about to get interesting."


Federal Judge Allows Texas to Seek Internal Documents from Facebook, Twitter and Google Regarding How They Censor Conservatives

A federal judge in Texas has allowed the state to seek documents from social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and Google.

A federal judge will allow Texas to seek internal documents from social-media companies regarding how they moderate content, as the state defends a new law restricting when platforms can suspend users.

The ruling Friday by U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman in Austin means Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is free to seek limited discovery from members of two prominent trade groups that sued to block the controversial statute, including Twitter Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s Google, and Facebook Inc.

The ruling allows Paxton to seek documents and depose employees at members of NetChoice and Computer & Communications Industry Association — but only if they’ll be impacted by the law barring platforms from suspending users over their political views. The statute, which applies to social-media companies with more than 50 million monthly users, takes effect December 2.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott reported on the judge’s decision.

Texas passed a law prohibiting Facebook, Twitter & Google from removing conservative viewpoints. They sued us. Now, a federal judge will let Texas seek internal documents about how they moderate content. It's about to get interesting.

'SOVREN' New Social Media Platform That Cannot Be Censored By Big Tech Launches Today

As the government attempts to force the public to comply with medical tyranny and lockdowns, big tech is doubling down on censorship, configuring algorithms to bury information surrounding the coronavirus and vaccines.

In 2020, tech giants brazenly censored a sitting President of the United States with no repercussions, making it abundantly clear they are tied to the hip of the Democrat Party.

An end to Big Tech’s control over digital information flow is nowhere in sight amid politicians’ empty threats of antitrust legislation.

But a video, live-streaming and social media platform that champions free speech and cannot be taken down by big tech may be a game-changer.

The new platform, Sovren, is not only “a place of refuge for free thinkers,” but it is the first social media platform built on invincible blockchain technology, explains Sovren founder Ben Swann.
