With the explosion of revelations from the release of the emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, it has been discovered that Facebook is censoring users’ posts of those public records, according to Reclaim the Net.

The emails published last week by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post showed Fauci — the COVID-19 “expert” whose profile has been boosted by voluminous appearances on mainstream media news outlets — taking contradictory stances on the issues of masks and quashing evidence that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. The emails undermined several other narratives that Fauci and the federal government have rammed down the throats of Americans, who have been forced to suffer under lockdowns and economic destruction, attributed to the threat of the coronavirus.… Read More ➡

Google Leads Way in Converting ‘Smart’ Tech to ‘Woke’

Google’s headquarters

If you thought all the new tech developments to make your life “smart” (like “smart homes” and “smart phones”) were really just Big-Brotherism trying to increasingly modify your behavior, Google has a new one for you.

Many are aware of the powerful search engine’s auto-complete feature, in which the user starts typing a desired phrase and Google offers suggested completions of the phrase. The tech giant built its search algorithms to be politically left leaning, research has shown. For example, during the 2016 presidential campaign, auto-complete offered only positive suggestions when beginning a search on “Hillary Clinton,” but no negative ones.

Now Google wants to bring the same feature to the documents you write. In your words. For yourself and your colleagues.

The company announced at its I/O Developer conference this week that users of its Google Docs program — in which collaborators can compose, edit, and … Read More ➡

Does Amazon’s Omnipotence Call for New Political Alliances?

The Richest Man in the World

Amazon is affordable, comprehensive, convenient, dependable, and even enjoyable – and extremely dangerous to free speech and the democratic process.

The efficiency that makes the online retailer such a compelling outlet to return to time and time again – for daily household needs, for impulse purchases, for big deals, for hosting your blog, and for watching favorite shows and movies – is now being turned against anything left-wing activists target.

Some are sufficiently alarmed at the Amazon threat that they are willing to leave their houses, find alternatives, spend more, alter lifestyles, and modify political principles and alliances to break the Amazon habit. 

First, a few examples of Amazon censorship. The most recent is the refusal to any longer sell a book by conservative scholar Ryan Anderson titled When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, which argues that individuals who desire … Read More ➡

Eric Schmidt’s Massive Conflicts of Interest

For a while after Joe Biden was recognized as the victor in the November presidential election, political punditry wondered which direction he would go: pro- or anti-Big Tech?

That has been clearly answered, as Biden installed several Silicon Valley influencers on his transition team, which in turn have helped populate his administration with former Big Tech executives.

Tops among them has been former Google/Alphabet CEO/Chairman Eric Schmidt, whose role hasn’t been formalized by name, but his presence certainly has been.

It’s not Schmidt’s ties to the search engine tech giant that are of greatest interest any more. Instead it’s his role as board member and top investor on a shiny new defense contractor that specializes in artificial intelligence technology, called Rebellion Defense, that is concerning because of a likely conflict of interest for Schmidt.

According to a report last month from The American ProspectRead More ➡
