    Big Tech giants versus the people






    Following Big Tech’s unanimous decision the other day to pull all footage of the America’s Frontline Doctors (AFD) “White Coat Summit” event from its respective platforms, LifeSiteNews created a petition to break up the Big Tech monopoly that quickly went viral. In less than two days, this LifeSite petition – you can sign it
    here – has garnered nearly 50,000 signatures. It calls on Congress to take swift action in breaking up the Silicon Valley stranglehold over free speech and the First Amendment.


    “Since Big Tech has now started to censor news and opinion, it’s clear that more competition – not monopoly – is needed on the internet,” says Gualberto Garcia Jones, LifeSite‘s director of advocacy. “Big Tech needs to be broken up so that competition of ideas can flourish again in America.” In case you missed it, the AFD event was quickly censored after its doctors, including the now-famous Dr. Stella Immanuel, spoke out in favor of health freedom. For daring to mention hydroxychloroquine and zinc, both of which have shown incredible success in treating Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients, AFD has seen its online presence drop to almost zero, thanks to Big Tech censorship. “Big Tech’s policy, which entails the censorship of legitimate news and opinion, is seriously undermining free speech and democracy itself,” LifeSite contends.


    Most Americans, regardless of political persuasion, agree that Big Tech needs to be broken up in the public interest of preserving free speech



    In its petition, LifeSite calls on the government to use existing antitrust laws to break up companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google for their relentless efforts to stifle online free speech. In addition to conspiring to “erase from the internet” the AFD White Coat Summit event, these tech platforms have implemented entire systems internally to crack down on “wrongthink,” including by limiting what users are able to pull up in internet searches. “Recently, at Facebook, two whistleblowers came forward to attest that the platform aggressively discriminates against conservatives on a global scale for the purpose of influencing election outcomes,” the petition adds.


    Likewise, Twitter has been the subject of “numerous free speech controversies for years,” it further explains, including an announcement made back in March that Twitter would be cracking down on “misinformation” concerning the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Back in 2018, Google, YouTube and other tech platforms conspired to manipulate the results of the Irish abortion referendum by blacklisting pro-life videos and manipulating pro-life search terms. All of this and more represents a direct assault on the First Amendment, and something that must be stopped if free speech is to have any chance at surviving in this new digital reality. “Of course, we believe that people are capable of sorting through opinion and news themselves. However, we cannot accept Big Tech stepping in to censor what opinion and news is available,” Garcia Jones further states. “Regrettably, Big Tech must now be broken up if legitimate free speech is going to survive and continue to thrive on the internet.”


    The good news is that most Americans, including folks from both sides of the aisle, agree that Big Tech censorship is completely out of control. A whopping 75% of them responded to a Pew poll indicating that Silicon Valley has too much influence over society, and that something needs to be done to ensure that people’s free speech rights are not getting trampled by tyrant extremists. “This petition calls on policymakers to be level-headed in this regard and use existing laws against monopolies to start the process of breaking up Big Tech,” LifeSite says.

    Yahoo News suddenly took away the reader comment section after having it for some 20 +/- years. They said they are "taking a survey" to "improve our community experience" all while giving no time line for when the comments will return. (Of course, they won't, ever). Pretty convenient timing.

    Trump’s Twitter Permaban ‘Shows Real Deep State is the People Who Run Social Media,’ Analyst Says



    Donald Trump has been permanently banned from Twitter, with the move coming after the company concluded a review which determined that his tweets contain the “glorification of violence.” The permaban follows months of tightening censorship against the president’s accounts.


    Twitter permanently suspended the president’s @realDonaldTrump account on Friday, depriving him of contact with his 88 million followers, with his other accounts, including @POTUS, and his campaign’s @TeamTrump, blocked as well.


    For years, Trump used @realDonaldTrump as his go-to means to bypass the media filter and speak directly to the public, with Twitter pulled along for the ride, enjoying the venerated status of being the first place people checked to find out what the president was thinking about and doing. That all ended Friday.
    Along with Twitter, Trump has been blocked on Facebook and Instagram. Parler, the commonly dubbed "free speech" app popular with Trump supporters,
    has been pulled from Google’s Play Store, ostensibly amid fears that it could be used “to incite ongoing violence in the US.” Apple has also threatened to ban the app from its App Store.


    ‘I Disapprove of What You Say, But Will Defend to the Death Your Right to Say It’ – Attributed to Voltaire


    Democrats and anti-Trump pundits rushed to praise the tech giant’s decision to permanently muzzle the president, with Congressman Jamaal Bowman comparing Trump’s Twitter downfall to the capture of Saddam Hussein following the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Others, however, have expressed concerns about what a ban on Trump, who is still the democratically-elected US president, and perhaps the most powerful person in the world, will mean for ordinary people.


    “Even if I don’t agree with what President Donald Trump proclaims, he should have the democratic right to communicate,” says Andy Vermaut, a Belgian human rights activist and political commentator who believes Twitter’s crusade against Trump is a violation of his fundamental rights.



    Vermaut, who saw his own Facebook profile with European non-profit Postversa blocked in November 2020, and has experienced his Twitter account getting blocked repeatedly for posting alternative media content, says he's witnessed censorship firsthand, and laments that unfortunately, “no one lies awake to the undermining of our fundamental rights,” including elected officials. Given this lack of action, the observer believes that “the real ‘deep state’ is the people who run social media and decide to muzzle, censor, and undermine people's voices,” whether it be activists like himself or the president of the United States.


    “In the case of President Trump, all this is done to ‘avoid inciting riots’, but that's what they want to do now, beating him down like a savage who doesn't know what he's doing. While this president has not unleashed any real war, with the exception of trade wars, unlike other presidents of the United States,” Vermaut stresses.


    Final Act of Long-Running Political Drama


    Trump’s permanent Twitter ban is just the final act in a long-running spat between the President and the popular microblogging service, and was preceded by a temporary ban on Wednesday following the unrest at the Capitol, and the appearance of bold, multicoloured disclaimers on some tweets disputing his comments relating to the results of November’s presidential election before that.


    Along with Trump, the accounts of some of his major allies, including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, pro-Trump attorney and conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell, and others have also been wiped out, ostensibly to suppress content said to be linked to the QAon conspiracy theory. It claims Trump and his government are fighting an elite cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles.



    ‘Level of Bias Has Gone Off the Scale’


    Paul Valone, a political commentator and executive director of Rights Watch International, a North Carolina-based non-profit and gun rights advocacy, fears Twitter’s decision is part of a much broader move by the American left to oppose free speech “to an extent which has never been seen in the United States, and is not unlike what we see in Communist China.”


    “We're not just looking at Donald Trump. We're looking at people like Rush Limbaugh; General Michael Flynn's account was deleted, as was Sidney Powell's – the attorney who has been working on election fraud. There is a very determined effort on the part of the left to eliminate any narrative that there was fraud or malfeasance during the last American elections,” says Valone.


    The political commentator is confident Trump will be able to get back on his feet and gather his base around him. “I think he'll have no trouble gathering supporters around him because the support for Donald Trump is extremely strong. If he's going to have a voice in American politics, frankly, if any of us are going to have a voice in American politics, it can only be done by starting his own platform or his own media company. Which by the way, I very much hope he does.”



    Valone says the current “level of bias” in the US on social media and the mass media in general “has gone off the scale,” and is the culmination of a creeping move away from objective coverage of news events that goes back decades.


    “As early as 1990 I was decrying what I then called advocacy journalism, namely the lack of objectivity in covering news.” All the major media networks, including Fox News, are guilty of such ‘advocacy journalism,'" adds the observer.



    Weaponisation of Social Media


    Pierluigi Paganini, a Napoli, Italy-based cybersecurity and intelligence expert, believes the real problem with Twitter’s decision on Trump wasn’t the ban itself, but the lack of coordination between the government and the private company.


    “The way the President has managed the situation is not appropriate, his words have fuelled the disorders and the rage of people causing the incidents we have assisted. This is the opinion of the social networks that have banned the accounts according to their policies,” he says. “The real problem is that the decision to block the account of a President has to be motivated and requested by the US Government itself and cannot be the choice of a private firm.”



    Paganini says many alternatives to the social media powerhouses like Twitter and Facebook already exist, and many more are sure to be created in the near future. “Reddit is probably an ideal candidate, it is a gift of the genius Aaron Swartz. Regarding the evolution of social media, I believe that they will continue to evolve to improve the user experience offering a new set of services that will increase their power, such as payment and e-commerce services. Anyway one of the drivers of the evolution will be the focus that some platforms on specific topics (politics, entertainment, etc.). Very interesting also decentralised social networks like Minds, Diaspora, and Mastodon,” he says.



    Citing such decentralised architectures as the best protection against censorship, Paganini notes that there is a major drawback– the threat of disinformation campaigns, including those carried out by state actors. In any event, Paganini says, recent events merely serve to “confirm that social media could be weaponised.”

    Twitter Permanently Suspends the President of the United States


    As I told you would happen, President Trump, whose reelection was stolen, now has no way of communicating with his supporters as the Establishment prepares to prosecute him on false charges like Russiagate.


    Is America any longer our country?

    This supposed republic is indeed going the direction of ChiCom-style censorship and authoritarianism. While the media predictably scream about the "coup" attempt in D.C. last week, the real purge and coup is being perpetrated by the "Big Tech" self-appointed gatekeepers of mass media online. The likes of facebook, Google. Twitter, etc look like very appropriate targets for antitrust lawsuits for starters.

    Amazon Boots Parler Off Web Hosting Service



    Amazon is booting social media platform Parler off its web hosting service Amazon Web Services (AWS), which will knock the platform offline on Sunday until it can find a new host.

    Amazon says that c0ntent on the social media site violates its terms of service, adding that it does not believe Parler has a good strategy for cracking down on speech on its platform, according to an email obtained by BuzzFeed News.

    “Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms,” said Amazon in its email to Parler. “It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service.”

    “It also seems that Parler is still trying to determine its position on content moderation,” the email added. “You remove some violent content when contacted by us or others, but not always with urgency.”

    The email continues as follows:

    "Your CEO recently stated publicly that he doesn’t “feel responsible for any of this, and neither should the platform.” This morning, you shared that you have a plan to more proactively moderate violent content, but plan to do so manually with volunteers. It’s our view that this nascent plan to use volunteers to promptly identify and remove dangerous content will not work in light of the rapidly growing number of violent posts. This is further demonstrated by the fact that you still have not taken down much of the content that we’ve sent you. Given the unfortunate events that transpired this past week in Washington, D.C., there is serious risk that this type of content will further incite violence.

    “[W]e cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others,” the email added. “Because Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend Parler’s account effective Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST.”


    Parler is already home to several Republican lawmakers and high-profile figures in conservative media, as well as members of President Donald Trump’s family.

    Amazon’s decision to ban Parler from its web hosting service arrives in the wake of Google and Apple banning Parler from their app stores — effectively excluded the app from Android and iPhone smartphones.

    Amazon, Google, and Apple’s decision to ban Parler arrive on the heels of Twitter permanently banning President Trump from its platform, as well as Facebook and Instagram locking the president out of his accounts “indefinitely.”

    “Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech from the internet,” said Parler CEO John Matze in a statement. “There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on Amazon’s proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.”

    “We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies,” continued Matze.

    “This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place,” the CEO added. “We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.”

    Apple Joins Google Play in Suspending Parler From App Store Over Dangerous Content



    Apple joined Google Play on Saturday in suspending Parler, the "free speech" social media platform favored by supporters of President Donald Trump, from its app store for failing to adequately moderate and remove dangerous and harmful content.

    "Parler has not upheld its commitment to moderate or remove harmful or dangerous content encouraging violence and illegal activity, and is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines," the Apple Review Board said in a letter sent to Parler.

    The board noted that they have "continued to find direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action in violation of Guideline 1.1—Safety—Objectionable Content."

    Apple said that Parler's moderation plan "does not meet the ongoing requirements in Guideline 1.2—Safety—User Generated content" because a temporary task force is an insufficient response "given the widespread proliferation of harmful content."

    "For these reasons, your app will be removed from the App Store until we receive an update that is compliant with the App Store Review Guidelines and you have demonstrated your ability to effectively moderate and filter the dangerous and harmful content on your service," the letter stated.

    ‘Capitol Hill is the 9/11 Moment of Social Media’ — EU Commissioner Calls for Govt Control of the Internet



    The European Commissioner for the internal market described the storming the U.S. Congress as the “9/11 moment of social media” and has called for the United States to work alongside the EU to implement more restrictions on speech on the internet.



    Thierry Breton, a former French Finance Minister, said that by banning U.S. President Donald Trump, following the unrest at the Capitol, tech companies “have recognized their responsibility, duty and means to prevent the spread of illegal viral content”. The EU Commissioner wrote in POLITICO, that tech companies “can no longer hide their responsibility toward society by arguing that they merely provide hosting services.” “The unrest in Washington is proof that a powerful yet unregulated digital space — reminiscent of the Wild West — has a profound impact on the very foundations of our modern democracies,” Brenton proclaimed. “Last week’s insurrection marked the culminating point of years of hate speech, incitement to violence, disinformation and destabilization strategies that were allowed to spread without restraint over well-known social networks,” he added.


    The Eurocrat called on the incoming Biden administration in the U.S. to “join forces, as allies of the free world” to craft a “new global approach to online platforms”. “Just as 9/11 marked a paradigm shift for global security, 20 years later we are witnessing a before-and-after in the role of digital platforms in our democracy,” he said. Following the terror attacks on September 11th, the United States Congress swiftly approved the Patriot Act, which drastically empowered American security agencies to surveil people, both inside and outside of the country.


    The comparison of the unrest at the Capitol building to 9/11 from the EU Commissioner echo sentiments expressed by President-Elect Joe Biden, who
    said of those who entered the building last week: “They weren’t protesters — don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob, insurrectionists, domestic terrorists.” Breton pointed to two proposed EU directives, the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act — both of which he has personally helped craft — as frameworks for policing online content. “Our European laws and courts will continue to define what is illegal, both offline and online — from child pornography to terrorist content, from hate speech to counterfeiting, from incitement to violence to defamation — through democratic processes and with appropriate checks and balances,” he wrote. The EU Commissioner said that with the introduction of the DSA, the bloc has made its “opening move”, but went on to argue that the challenges posed by freedom of speech on the internet are “global in nature”. He went on to argue that the “dogma anchored in section 230” — a provision of the American Communications Decency Act of 1996 which provides liability protections for social media companies, protecting them from being sued for the content users post on their platforms — “has collapsed”.



    Therefore, Mr Breton called for increased government control of social media platforms, saying: “Regardless of whether silencing a standing president was the right thing to do, should that decision be in the hands of a tech company with no democratic legitimacy or oversight?”


    In response to the article, the director of Big Brother Watch, Silkie Carlo said that the violence in the Capitol will be exploited by authorities “to justify more securitisation, surveillance and, of course, censorship – the final frontier – in the months to come.”

    Parler Sues Amazon for Withdrawing Support After U.S. Capitol Riot



    Social network Parler is suing Amazon for pulling its cloud computing support in the wake of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot.

    Popular with conservatives and supporters of President Donald Trump, Parler was reliant on the cloud computing services provided by AWS. However, AWS withdrew its support this week after concluding that posts on Parler “clearly encourage and incite violence.”

    In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Seattle, Parler accused Amazon Web Services of breaking antitrust laws.

    “AWS’s decision to effectively terminate Parler’s account is apparently motivated by political animus,” the lawsuit said. “It is also apparently designed to reduce competition in the microblogging services market to the benefit of Twitter.”

    It continues: “This emergency suit seeks a Temporary Restraining Order against defendant Amazon Web Services to prevent it from shutting down Parler’s account. Doing so is the equivalent of pulling the plug on a hospital patient on life support. It will kill Parler’s business — at the very time it is set to skyrocket.”

    An AWS spokesperson told CNBC there’s no merit to the claims, while Parler did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

    “It is clear that there is significant content on Parler that encourages and incites violence against others, and that Parler is unable or unwilling to promptly identify and remove this content, which is a violation of our terms of service,” an AWS spokesperson told CNBC.

    “We made our concerns known to Parler over a number of weeks and during that time we saw a significant increase in this type of dangerous content, not a decrease, which led to our suspension of their services Sunday evening.”

    Apple and Google remove Parler

    Screenshots of the Parler app viewed by CNBC show users posting references to firing squads, as well as calls to bring weapons to next week’s presidential inauguration of Joe Biden.

    In the lawsuit, Parler’s lawyers question why AWS isn’t removing support for Twitter, which is also an AWS customer.

    AWS “stated the reason for the suspension was that AWS was not confident Parler could properly police its platform regarding content that encourages or incites violence against others,” the lawsuit said. “However, (on) Friday night one of the top trending tweets on Twitter was ‘Hang Mike Pence.’ But AWS has no plans nor has it made any threats to suspend Twitter’s account.”

    Twitter declined to comment.

    Parler became the number one free downloaded app on Apple’s App Store after Twitter announced that it was permanently banning Trump from its platform. “Conservative users began to flee Twitter en masse for Parler,” the lawsuit said.

    However, Apple removed Parler from the iPhone App Store on Saturday, a day after Google removed Parler from its Android app store.

    John Matze, founder and CEO of Parler, condemned the tech giants’ moves. In a series of posts on Parler over the weekend, he said his platform had removed its violent content and adding that its community guidelines don’t allow Parler to be knowingly used for criminal activity.

    Matze said Monday that the Parler app will be down “longer than expected” because other cloud hosting companies do not want to work with Parler in light of the press statements issued by Amazon, Google and Apple.

    “This is not due to software restrictions — we have our software and everyone’s data ready to go. Rather it’s that Amazon’s, Google’s and Apple’s statements to the press about dropping our access has caused most of our other vendors to drop their support for us as well,” Matze said.

    He added: “Most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us. We will update everyone and update the press when we are back online.”

    Parler has transferred its domain name to Epik, which hosts the similar far-right social media network Gab. However, it still needs to find a hosting provider.

    “At this point, we may even have to go as far as buying and building our own data centers,” said Matze in an interview with Fox News on Monday.

    Gab, a social network known for its far-right userbase and a frequent host of hate speech, appears to be benefiting from the fallout. On Monday, Gab CEO Andrew Torba announced that the platform had gained 600,000 new users.
