Better yet, let’s put the Bill of Rights where our lips are being zipped tight.
Freedom of speech in Cyberspace—the central place for political and cultural debate—is what’s at stake.
Social media is the new town square and no longer a private affair.
[Clip: “Very importantly, my administration is also standing up for the free speech rights of all Americans, free speech rights. Look at social media, it’s a thing called free speech rights. You look at Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media giants, and I’ve made it clear that we as a country cannot tolerate political censorship, blacklisting, and rigged search results. And you know it can go the other way also.” Applause! Applause!]
Today’s One Way Street is tomorrow’s U-Turn.
The power of what we see and learn goes way beyond anything George Orwell could have ever unturned.
[Clip: “We will not let large corporations silence conservative voices, and it can, it can go the other way too someday. It can play little tricks with them. We’re not going to let them control what we can and cannot see, read, and learn from, we can’t do that. America is a free country, and we are always going to stay always a free country.”]
We’ve got a First Amendment for that.
Let’s use it to bust Big Tech.
Why should a chosen few—Zuckerberg, Sandberg, Greenblatt, Cohen—decide what views we can learn, hear, and see?
Especially from the SPLC.
[Clip: “Well Google is policing the content posted to YouTube and they’re using a thoroughly discredited left-wing group to do that. Google is creating a group of trusted flaggers who will help the company monitor alleged extremist content on the website. One of those trusted flaggers is not trusted at all. It’s the Southern Poverty Law Center. It’s not an expert on the South, or poverty, or the law.”]
And Big Tech crying, ‘We’re privately owned and can scrub whatever we disown and post whatever we condone,’ doesn’t get it anymore.
Ownership doesn’t always mean absolute dominion.
The more an owner—for his advantage—expands his property for use by the public the more his rights become circumscribed by the constitutional claims of those who use it.
That was the ruling in the plaintiff’s favor in the Supreme Court case, “Marsh vs Alabama,” where a religious pamphleteer was denied by a company-owned town in Alabama to hand out tracts on the sidewalk.
In this far-reaching precedent, the Supreme Court determined that a private corporation operating in a quasi-public government capacity is legally bound by constitutional constraints.
Her trespass arrest and conviction in a company town did ^indeed violate Marsh’s First Amendment rights despite her being on purported private property.
Big Tech reaches far beyond the borders of a privileged small private space.
[Clip:”Facebook constantly manipulates their users. They do it by the things they insert into the newsfeeds, and they do it by the types of hosts they allow their users to see.” “They can suppress certain types of results based on what they think you should be seeing, based on what your followers are presenting.” “It’s what Google and Facebook are doing on a regular basis by suppressing stories, by steering us towards other stories rather than the stories we’re actually seeking. That’s the real manipulation that’s going on.”]
Big Tech is joined at the hip to Big Gov, the Pentagon, and the National Security & Intel apparatus via intertwining contracts big and small.
All it takes is just one viable plaintiff cuffed by censorship who can establish standing and then push the process up to the Supreme Court.
Are you listening?
Bring your suit. The precedent is in place. The time is ripe and your claim is fair.
Don’t let a chosen few police Cyberspace the new public square.
Donald Trump, and probably for the last time in this nation’s history, has an opportunity to nationalize, as you yourself have argued, the media.
Will he do it?
When one realizes the investment the deep state has in the false “war on terror” narrative and their connection to the MSM to maintain the illusion, along with other “false flag” shootings, which are LEGAL under the 2013 Patriot Act, it is clear that it won’t be easy. See the clip below by Naomi Wolf, hardly a conservative:
I totally agree with you on this, Steve. I saw THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR a few decades ago on TV, it was definitely a thriller and kept my eyes glued to every scene. Robert Redford was fantastic in his role (he’s been in lots of movies, some with Barbara Streisand and some with Paul Newman).
I definitely agree with your statement regarding President Trump nationalizing the media. The question, as you said, is will he do it? I cannot answer that question, but I believe he should. The media - especially, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS, along with the Pirhana Press (the worst being the NY Slimes) are spewing out lies at every turn.
I wholeheartedly agree with you, Br. Nat, the 1st Amendment can certainly bust Big Tech. This is where President Donald Trump needs to assert his authority. First of all, he must rid his Administration of all Trotskyists aka Neocons (this includes the evil troika of Elliott Abrams, Bonkers Bolton, and Pompous Pompass).
He must also allow the White House to rescind Jared Kushner’s security clearances, due to the fact that Jared’s been doing business with Saudi officials such as Mohammed Bin Salman, who has been accused of ordering the brutal murder of Journalist Jamal Khassoggi.
Trump must also stop interfering in the internal affairs of Venezuela. It’s up to the Venezuelans themselves whether or not to keep the man they had elected - Nicolas Maduro - as their president. Organizing a coup d’etat against the Maduro Govt violates International law and creates instability within Venezuela itself. We certainly don’t want Venezuela to become another Ukraine or worse, Libya.
As you rightly said, Brother, Trump must concern himself with saving the 1st Amendment and the entire Bill of Rights from Big Tech, instead of meddling in the internal affairs of other countries such as Venezuela.
Thank you for yet again another incisive, dynamite report on Big Tech’s assault on the First Amendment, and bringing the very important, long-standing Marsh vs Alabama precedent case to our attention.
As closely knit as Google, Facebook, etc are tied to the Big Government and the military and national security apparatus as both common carrier and/or publisher (depending on which chameleon color it wears on the situation) and their private-public contracts putting them squarely in 24/7/365 quasi-public function conceptually analogous to the “company town” in the cyberspace, you do indeed have a very supportable legal constitutional theory for challenging Big Tech’s constant violation of the First Amendment.
I received this today which ties right in, highlighting the very direct political activism functioning inside Google, Facebook, and the rest of Big Tech:
Activist Post: Facebook Insider Leaks Docs; Explains “Deboosting” “Troll Report” & Political Targeting in Interview
By Project Veritas
Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider. This information describes how Facebook engineers plan and go about policing political speech.
Screenshots from a Facebook workstation show the specific technical actions taken against political figures, as well as “[e]xisting strategies” taken to combat political speech.

(MPN) — Facebook seemed to have outdone itself again in its ongoing suppression of independent media when, earlier this month in coordination with CNN, it banned four pages belonging to a company that was not even accused of breaking any of the platform’s rules.
The genesis of In The Now’s ban is striking as it has never concealed its funding and it had been reported on years ago. Nonetheless, a U.S. government-funded neoconservative think tank saw a problem with In The Now and partnered with CNN to expose it.
CNN identified the owners of In The Now to Facebook and used yet another neoconservative think tank, which has been partnering closely with Facebook for the past few years, to scaremonger in its article about Russian meddling in American politics.
Now, Facebook is reversing its decision following outcry from the public.
Facebook’s advertising ban against RT — which was accused in a January 2017 Office of the Director of National Intelligence report of seeking to sow “radical discontent” in the United States during the presidential election, including with TV shows that did not air during the race — became a powder keg, leading to a new era of heightened hostilities in the U.S. establishment’s social-media information war.
The measly 12-page document gave tech giants like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter carte blanche justification to intervene against alternative media publications that were growing in popularity on their platform.
My wife sent me a link to a FB page titled “Dumbest Patients Ever” stories or some such.
Some of the stories were pretty funny but after reading around fifty of them I noticed a theme developing: anti-vaxxers are dumb.
(((Propaganda under other guises.)))
The same stuff is seen when coming across those, “Test Your ‘X’ Knowledge” one sees at places like Bing or Yahoo. There will be pro-Jewish propaganda insinuated into the text, e.g., “Who was the architect of the ‘Final Solution’” in a test your WW2 knowledge quiz; or “Who were the pogroms of Tsarist Russia directed against?” in a test your knowledge of world history quiz.
Irrespective of the nature of these quizzes (((propaganda))) is often being pushed into the minds of the lumpenproletariat.
Anymore, even (((TV))) commercials need to be considered agitprop.
The “free speech” from most politicians is what Jewish banksters pay them to say.
Jews who run Foxjews have some sinister purpose for portraying Trump as the great defender who will save the formerly common people from liberals, terrorists, communists, demonrats, perverts, left-wingers, and similar evils.
Maybe the Jews will use Trump to lead the blind down the road to world government or some such destination where common people would not follow a demonrat. It looks like the stage is being set for a revolution that will lead to the end of what is left of America as it existed in bygone times.
Lots of “conservatives” are drinking Trump kool-aid and going back for more. At the same time the “liberals” are being trained to hate Trump passionately. The divisions are well established now.
Minority vs white, Catholic vs Protestant, north vs south, Muslim vs Christian, Democrat vs Republican, and such groupings needed for Divide and Conquer revolutions are all set.
Is trump a useful idiot being played like a puppet on a string, or is he participating in this charade knowingly and willingly ?
As Jews distort and destroy the First Amendment, freedom of speech, civil rights, websites and comments like this become an endangered species.
Here is another piece of evidence that Foxjews is just another mass media outlet controlled by Jews — Foxnews is on the bandwagon condemning Congresswoman Omar of so-called anti-semitism because Omar questioned why so many US politicians are loyal to Israel and Jews instead of the USA and Americans.
Foxnews is promoting laws against “anti-Semitism” just like MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, and the rest of the Jews Media. Foxnews is condemning everyone and everything that doesn’t bow down to Israel and the Jews, just like CNN and the rest of mass media.
In matters of promoting Israel, attacking “anti-Semitism,” lobbying for wars, and pushing Jewish propaganda, Foxnews always sings the same song as the rest of the Jews Media. This shows that Foxnews is controlled by Jews just like the rest of the Jews Media.
Foxnews does their part in dividing the races against each other just like the rest of mass media, but Fox is assigned to lead conservatives, Republicans, the red kool-aid crowds. The rest of Jews Media TV is assigned to lead Democrats, blacks, atheists, minorities, LBGQT, anti-Christian groups, the blue kool-aid crowds.
The bankster Jews have Demonrats and Republicans divided against each other more than ever before. Instead of Jews reports exposing how Jews have divided politics into minorities vs whites, Demonrats vs Republicans, the news reports hide it and distort it.
The bankster Jews have intentionally, maliciously, divided the races against each other into Demonrats vs Republicans. That is precisely what Jews have done with politics, government, society. White people have been herded like cattle into the Republican corral. Minorities have been herded into the Demonrat corral.
Jews use racial strife as a perverse weapon in their destruction of Christianity. Jews are replacing Christian based government with the Jew World Order.
“The Israelis control the policy in the Congress and the Senate.” – Senator William Fulbright, 1973
“America is a thing you can move very easily.” – Benjamin Netanyahu, 2001
If you have half an hour to spare, you might want to watch the most “powerful” Democrat in the U.S. Senate, and the most “powerful” Democrat in the U.S. House Of Representatives begging (soliciting) for Zionist million$$ during a 2018 meeting of the Israeli-American Council (IAC). Quite a show.
TRON News - McAfee Sends Love to Tron-Based Platform, Hoping It Will Be YouTube Killer
VibraVid is one of those decentralized platforms that have been powered by Tron.
This startup is believed to be a direct rival to the centralized YouTube platform and the ones similar to it.
Its purpose is to change the system that connects users and content makers. The most interesting is that VibraVid hopes to let content makers get their profit from consumers directly, with no intermediaries taking part of these earnings away.
What does the U S Congressman Chuck Schumer mean in his video recorded statement beginning at about 41:55 in the video that you gave, in which Chuck states that he took Nancy Pelosi everywhere in Israel except where they did the stations of the cross, he stayed home?
