TikTok – Digital Foundations Quiver

Once anti-trust noise starts, it is almost impossible to stop. Last week black activist Candace Owens launched a suit against Facebook for de-platforming her, and this week Lin Wood, the lawyer for Nicholas Sandman who walked away from the fight with CNN and the Washington Post with probable eight-figure settlements launched another suit on behalf of Kyle Rittenhouse. The Wall Street Journal reports:

By tak­ing down links to pay Mr. Rit­ten­house’s le­gal fees, the com­pany is in­ter­fer­ing with his abil­ity to raise money for his de­fense in a way other crim­i­nal de­fen­dants might. The fact that the plat­form may only be used to de­clare Mr. Rit­ten­house’s guilt, but not his in­no­cence—though lawyers say the self-de­fense ar­gu­ment is plau­si­ble—could prej­u­dice a jury pool in the high-pro­file case. One of Amer­i­ca’s most pow­er­ful com­panies is ef­fec­tively giv­ing its of­fi­cial im­pri­matur to Wis­con­sin pros­e­cutors’ case against a spe­cific de­fen­dant.

The weird little alien kid who created Facebook is going to watch his empire start crumbling in the next four years. Winning Trumpsters will be merciless. He can then follow Bill Gates’ example and become a world-scale psychopath creating vaccines to draw down the population. I’m thinking AI implants.

The Frontier Centre for Public Policy analyses the Gates domination of world health and especially vaccines, here. HCG, the pregnancy hormone (which acts as a sterility drug) has been found in vaccines in Kenya, and the outcry from Africans regarding drug testing on unsuspecting women has been so loud that an almost certainly Gates-funded take-down was published in an attempt to whitewash his activities, linked here. The usual Right-Wing Fear Flag is flapped vigorously. Gates has given more than $250 million to media companies, including BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Texas Tribune, Gannett, Washington Monthly, Le Monde, PBS NewsHour and the Center for Investigative Reporting. Which means now, the most important player in world health has muzzled a substantial percentage of mainstream media.

NPR, who rakes in millions from Gates “investigated” his reach:

In August 2019, it reported how Harvard University’s Opportunity Insights program had successfully helped low-income families obtain housing in wealthier “high-opportunity” areas identified by economist Raj Chetty, who heads the program, thereby allowing the children an opportunity to achieve greater success in life. Dr. Joseph Mercola, who has been substantially deplatformed for his contrarian views on health, reports:

If you squint as you read the story, you’ll notice that every quoted expert is connected to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which helps fund the project. And if you’re really paying attention, you’ll also see the editor’s note at the end of the story, which reveals that NPR itself receives funding from Gates.

NPR denies that funding had anything to do with its decision to write the story, or its slant. Of course they do. However, given the usual slavering coverage, NPR is so far up Gate’s scrawny behind they might as well be called his puppet.

Mistrust everything. Everything.

Amazon, Apple, Twitter and Facebook are all heading for Trust-busting, Roosevelt-style

Enjoy the giants, because in ten years they will be gone. Amazon, Apple, Google, Twitter are all heading for the chopping block of democracy. And free speech is the accelerant.

They are too big; they are too dominant. They are worse than the robber barons who were ruined by Theodore Roosevelt, an earlier Trumpkin.  I don’t need to cite the figures showing that they are virtually the only publishers now, the rest just feed into their maw. As such, they have all the power.

And now they are flexing it.

This weekend Twitter decommissioned the account of the current darling of the right, a young pretty black woman called Candace Owens with a mouth on her that hasn’t been seen since Churchill, no lie. Owens was spoofing the latest hire of the NYTimes editorial page a Korean-American racist who hates white men so hard one expects her to melt into green slime like the Wicked Witch of the East.

Apple has decided to take a firm stand on “free speech” and has eliminated all of Alex Jones’s podcasts along with Google etc., effectively de-platforming him. Jones is a much-loved crack-pot and someone who often gets things very very very right on, along with a lot of spectacular rubbish, which amuses tens of millions.

Twitter and Facebook lost 25% of their value last week, seems they aren’t getting enough new users.  Could it have something to do with blocking, shadow-banning and censoring the full 50% of their user base with whom they do not agree?  Arithmetic is so hard.

Amazon has been elected by the cartel police in Germany as their next target for take-down, arguing, correctly, that Amazon eviscerates local businesses. Coupled with the exposes of warehouse worker conditions, nothing is starting to look good on them, not even the pleasure of having toilet paper delivered by Fedex.

Trust-busting is fueled almost entirely by public sentiment, and sentiment is turning. No one believes anything any authority says anymore.  It seems that finally, the people’s revolution is here and the public has freed itself from forelock tugging.

It is going to be a splendid spectacle watching the slow-mo fall. And lawyers are going to make out like bandits.
