TWITTER, WHICH CENSORS TRUMP FOR TWEETING WE NEED LAW AND ORDER AS "GLORIFYING VIOLENCE," ALLOWS HASHTAG "BURN LOUISVILLE" TO TREND FOR HOURS IN MIDDLE OF RIOT SITUATION

It's still up.

I'm getting tired of having to live under monopolistic censorship just because Jim Fucking Jordan likes getting paid off by Google.

burnlouisvilletrendig

And they do. Jim Jordan takes a lot of Google money, and a lot more Google money indirectly through the various groups Google funds.

And I'm tired of having a party leadership dominated by traitors in the pay of the enemy.

And if takes voting Jim Jordan out of fucking office -- well, I'm sure we'll do just fine without him.

Twitter should be subject to lawsuit for any damages caused by their incitements.



They've left up this incitement from a leftwing professor to murder former Trump NSA spokesman Michael Anton for nearly a week, despite being repeatedly warned about it.

What would be the argument against that, apart from "Google Money has made Jim Jordan Gay4Pay"?

And no, Jimmy Boy -- I don't want another Failure Theater hearing where you talk tough to google and facebook for the cameras while distributing talking points behind-the-scenes about how to forestall any action against your Cash Money Johns.

A memorandum leaked ahead of a Wednesday antitrust hearing suggests Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee drafted talking points to help them defend tech companies against claims they have become too monopolistic.

The 37-page memo was prepared in advance of an antitrust subcommittee's hearing with tech CEOs including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Apple’s Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and Google’s Sundar Pichai. Marked "confidential," the document threatened to undermine Republican efforts to appear tough on the companies amid claims they have not only engaged in anti-competitive practices, but have also sought to censor conservatives online.

Four themes summarized on the first page began with a brief acknowledgment of conservatives’ concerns, calling "political bias in Big Tech" a "problem that must be highlighted … so that consumers are aware, the market can respond, and lawmakers can evaluate options." The final three themes emphasized the need to defend "Big Tech" from regulation, stating, "Antitrust law should be used to promote freedom, competition, and the American dream, not to punish success or attack companies."

Part of antitrust law is about stopping monopolies from using their monopoly position to squelch businesses in other fields.

You know, like conservatives' access to advertising revenue from third parties.

But Jim Jordan's okay with Google using its power to destroy conservatives, conservative think tanks, and conservative citizens.

Because Google pays him to be okay with it.

...


Some conservatives on Wednesday expressed their displeasure with the news, and especially with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), after the memo widely circulated on social media.

"He needs to give an explanation for why his office put out a memo for this hearing that might as well have been written by Google's lobbyists," Human Events publisher Will Chamberlain wrote on Twitter. Breitbart News reporter Allum Bokhari wrote in another message directed at Jordan, "Big tech has faced billion-euro antitrust fines in Europe and taken it on the chin. Has GOP ever proposed any punishment close to as severe for political bias?"

And no Jim, I don't want to hear you grandstand and yell at Google on camera again -- I already know you've worked out a Joint Defense Agreement with your co-conspirator behind-the-scenes.

Do you guys work out the exact script -- the exact pretend-angry question you'll ask, and the exact rebuttal offered by Google, Twitter, and FaceBook -- or do you allow some light improvisation in your Failure Theater performances?

Do you find that some light improvisation makes your performances feel more "organic"?


Contact Google's Capitol Hill shill Jim Jordan here.

Meanwhile -- Twitter's getting the riots it's inciting.

There was a great 30 for 30 documentary awhile back called 'Broke'. It told the stories of how pro athletes made tons of money and ended up blowing it.

26 All that has to be done about Twitter is to pass new laws regarding social media sites and free speech, treating them as a new form of broadcasting (like they had to with radio and TV before it) with its own particular governing regulations and structures.

Its not a platform, its not a publisher, its something new, like Blogs. Commenters and people's responses are a new factor that existing laws don't cover well. Enough of this "well they are neither goose nor gander so lets just let them do whatever the hell they want" thing.

39 One thing that has to change is the way the censorship works right now.

Twitter's commissars and workers can censor, block, shadowban, or deplatform anything they want, without consequence, for any reason they wish even if its crazy or stupid -- they even are doing it to the freaking President of the United States.

Yes, eventually they tend to reverse these decisions, and put stuff back up or let it go out more, when appealed and the outcry hits them. But here's the thing...

Twitter is very fast. Anything that's scrolled off your main page, you probably won't see or have forgotten about. It rolls off so fast you can't really go find old posts easily.

So by the time they go "oopsie, we fixed it" that ship has sailed, and there's no negative consequence whatsoever for that action, but they have this plausible 'we did the best we could' answer to complaints.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 23, 2020 05:35 PM (KZzsI)

89 I am in the "we need to be extra careful about government interference with business and regulation" camp as well, solidly.

My principle is that I don't want any power in the hands of the federal government that I would fear Hillary Clinton using as president, for example.

But there is a place for these laws as a short-term, careful hedge against excesses by business. I would very much rather out government not go "woohoo!!!! ANOTHER PATRIOT ACT AGAINST SOCIAL MEDIA!"

all you need to do is restrict it for any platform that does not have a dominant or monopoly position.

And then for those that do -- you STILL have s.230 protection, but only if they abide by the preconditions of a safe harbor provision. Namely, that they prove that they are not censoring based on point of view but only based on time, place, manner considerations (that is, they track with US laws on free speech) every year.

And if they don't prove that -- they lose their s.230 immunity for two years. they can apply after two years for the safe harbor again, if they can prove they've not been censoring based on point-of-view for two full years.

The government doesn't need to regulate. They simply need to spell out (LOL) the types of models, period. Twatter for instance can decide if they want to remain who/what they are, or change their business to fit their desired and protected model. Door 1, 2 or 3.

They can't have their cake and eat it too. If somebody like google decides they're going to track you via GPS on your phone, and evesdrop on your conversations saving them for later (like they do now), great.

Make that apparent to the end-user and also make sure that ONLY that end user gets tracked. Right now, if you've got a friend installing these apps you're fair game as well. If they're caught doing something else, they can pay to rebuild the infrastructure.

196 all you need to do is restrict it for any platform that does not have a dominant or monopoly position.

And then for those that do -- you STILL have s.230 protection, but only if they abide by the preconditions of a safe harbor provision. Namely, that they prove that they are not censoring based on point of view but only based on time, place, manner considerations (that is, they track with US laws on free speech) every year.

And if they don't prove that -- they lose their s.230 immunity for two years. they can apply after two years for the safe harbor again, if they can prove they've not been censoring based on point-of-view for two full years.


This seems like a well-considered approach. At the very least its an easy way of applying existing legislation until a better idea can be worked out.

2. I want both. Pull some all-nighters. Work some weekends. I get that maybe you don't want to arrest anyone and give away the game. Fine. Torture a couple and livestream it. I'm reasonable.

How many times must I instruct you on this before you finally grasp the point? Look, if you want to push your political views on social media, build your own Google. But let's face it, no one is interested in your incoherent fascist hate speech anyway.

Sargon of Akkad had a piercing insight two years ago. In response to the Google Defenders saying 'But what RULES would you APPLY?! It's so conFUSing!!!," he said: "They can just apply the basic free speech laws of the united states. It's a very well defined and well understood area of the law. To the extent possible, gray areas are pretty well defined."

The people claiming this is some sort of impossibility are lying. They are derailing the discussion into BUH BUH HOW COULD WE DO IT? when their real objection is either 1, they should be allowed to be our censors because they're the most powerful leftwing political actor in the world, or 2, because they're paying us off, brah.

215 I look at the Texas Covid dashboard update, I check it about this time every day. Established trends continue, new case numbers per day are falling slowly, fatalities per day are falling dramatically. Saw something in the data that I had never focused on before, it surprised me. Total deaths assigned to Covid in Texas are 15,129, far more than enough to be statistically significant.

Current population demographics in Texas are persons of black descent, 12.9%, non-Hispanic whites, 41.2%, those who identify as Hispanic or Latino, 39.7%. You see why Dems always tell themselves they should be wining, but they forget that people like Ted Cruz identify as "hispanic" in this reckoning. ANYWAY..

the Covid death numbers so far are - Blacks, 11.3%, even a little less than you would expect, but close. Non-hispanic whites, 30%, much lower than one would expect. This was the surprise - Hispanic persons, 56% of all deaths, even though they only make up 39% of the population. I found that amazing, and something that I had not seen reported or noted anywhere else.

WTH is a "legal observer"? When there's a riot in play, "legal observers" don't get to stick their schnoz anywhere they damn well please like they're in a protective immunity bubble. If you get in the middle of everything, you're now part of the demonstration if you don't follow an order. Sure, you can defy it. Then don't complain when you have to talk to the judge.

228 The core part of controlled opposition is that the Republicans say what you expect an opposition party to say but then never actually stop the Democrats from doing what they want, let alone role it back.

Sometimes it is silly procedural things. Sometimes it is oh we need 60 solid Senators and the House and the Supreme Court and the judges on the Voice. Sometimes it is "the conscious" of one otherwise conservative legislator.

But to better understand this look at the Dems. How many times has a rightwing measure gone through because Dems have aided it (when it would have failed otherwise). How many times did the Dems get stopped by procedural nonsense?

247 123 >>>Much as I like commenting here, no comments section can justify the kind of abuse section 230 has spawned.

all you need to do is restrict it for any platform that does not have a dominant or monopoly position.

And then for those that do -- you STILL have s.230 protection, but only if they abide by the preconditions of a safe harbor provision. Namely, that they prove that they are not censoring based on point of view but only based on time, place, manner considerations (that is, they track with US laws on free speech) every year.

And if they don't prove that -- they lose their s.230 immunity for two years. they can apply after two years for the safe harbor again, if they can prove they've not been censoring based on point-of-view for two full years.

Posted by: ace at September 23, 2020 05:49 PM (PbpT7)


Here's why I am skeptical of a that kind of nuanced approach:

(a) You have to control the executive branch to see the DOJ move on this issue when there's a violation. Our guy has been president for more than 3 years, and it's disputable how much control he has, given the deep state.

(b) Our courts. Enough said, right?

So I think the law needs to be exceedingly clear. Very simple. No exceptions. Just an ironclad rule.

It would be hard enough to get a simple repeal, given how bought-off everyone is. Imagine these same grifters drafting a more complicated measure.

That was the original date Barr mentioned as kicking off the next phase.. But you know how investigations go. There are interview, grand juries, negotiations, Supreme Court Justices dropping dead and other political considerations. Delays happen all the time in simple investigations. This is the biggest political scandal in the history of the country. Probably any country.

Barr said there would be developments between Labor Day and the election. I believe him. If you don't you don't but tell me, what fucking difference does it really make if it hits tomorrow or next Wednesday?

I want results more than anyone here. I've followed it pretty damn closely for almost 4 fucking years. I didn't know until today that Hunter Biden got $3.5 million from the former wife of the mayor of Moscow and used it to pay for sex with sex trafficked women controlled by the Russian mafia, did you?

Durham found the FBI guilty of framing 4 innocent men in Boston and freed the two who were still alive and sprung them over the complaints of a guy named Bob Mueller. He's a maniac for public corruption and he's very thorough.

Indeed, the company I worked for had to build a whole new facility
with which to make money off of Mexico. It turned into a cash machine
for them. And led to the hiring of tons of people in the United States.


I lost a pretty good manufacturing job the day NAFTA went into effect on 1/1/94. The company shut down the entire plant and moved it to Mexico and only took the family's management people with them.

Nearly 100,000 small manufacturing businesses were forced to close over the next few years, gutting the middle class (who just so happened to be grassroots Republican supporters).


Sundown Joe was quoted at the time saying he knew NAFTA would cost American jobs, but he voted for it anyway. That's why B'Gal and I are just barely getting by. I should be making around $75K a year as a machinist by now, which is what they told me I could expect when I started Toolmaker Apprenticeship school in the early '80's.

290 228 The core part of controlled opposition is that the Republicans say what you expect an opposition party to say but then never actually stop the Democrats from doing what they want, let alone role it back.

Sometimes it is silly procedural things. Sometimes it is oh we need 60 solid Senators and the House and the Supreme Court and the judges on the Voice. Sometimes it is "the conscious" of one otherwise conservative legislator.

But to better understand this look at the Dems. How many times has a rightwing measure gone through because Dems have aided it (when it would have failed otherwise). How many times did the Dems get stopped by procedural nonsense?

There are issues where the GOP isn't allowed to win and there are issues where the Democrats aren't allowed to win. When you look at those areas the political desires of our ruling class become apparent. Low taxes with a lot of loopholes for the wealthy, and a very, very friendly attitude toward big business. However, the GOP is never allowed to win a social issue. No matter how many Justices Trump appoints abortion will never be endangered. These general policies clearly matches up with the preferred policy choices of the large donors.

303 Twitter's commissars and workers can censor, block, shadowban, or deplatform anything they want, without consequence, for any reason they wish even if its crazy or stupid -- they even are doing it to the freaking President of the United States.

Yes, eventually they tend to reverse these decisions, and put stuff back up or let it go out more, when appealed and the outcry hits them. But here's the thing...

Twitter is very fast. Anything that's scrolled off your main page, you probably won't see or have forgotten about. It rolls off so fast you can't really go find old posts easily.

So by the time they go "oopsie, we fixed it" that ship has sailed, and there's no negative consequence whatsoever for that action, but they have this plausible 'we did the best we could' answer to complaints.

309 >>Ok, they may be right on this one. Another angle released by Telemundo.

Okay, sorry but what the hell is even saying there at the end - about having lost the thread or something?

Not sure this does anything for Team Punch n Jody...

First, if the goal here was to convince everyone (everyone being his media fweens) you would do a wide angle including interviewer and Punchy there asking and answering questions in the normal back and forth, not this cropped shit where you first see Biden, then the interviewer, then Biden for the answer and so forth - its way to staged to be the natural back and forth they desperately need you to believe.

Second, what is with this dark sterile interview stage set up? Are they in some studio bunker or what? Interviews are done in the light, not down in the janitors broom closet. Is is because Punchy has eye problems?

310 Sundown Joe was quoted at the time saying he knew NAFTA would cost American jobs, but he voted for it anyway. That's why B'Gal and I are just barely getting by. I should be making around $75K a year as a machinist by now, which is what they told me I could expect when I started Toolmaker Apprenticeship school in the early '80's.

313 Where is the statement that Breonna Taylor's family has accepted $12 million, in large part, to compensate them for their "pain and suffering"?

Any report on the case that omits that fact is creating an error of omission. #FakeNews

318 140 Joe Biden did not use a teleprompter in Telemundo interview, CNN and Politico confirm

The teleprompter is plainly visible in the wide shots. He is obviously reading from it. But I guess that's just my lying eyes, who'd believe that?
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 23, 2020 05:52 PM (KZzsI)

I saw the video clip, and it's clear that he was reading from a teleprompter, and they superimposed the video question on a screen afterwards.

Unless there are newfangled TVs out there, you would see the flicker if they were filming the segment with a live TV on.

319 >>>290 228 The core part of controlled opposition is that the Republicans say what you expect an opposition party to say but then never actually stop the Democrats from doing what they want, let alone role it back.

Sometimes it is silly procedural things. Sometimes it is oh we need 60 solid Senators and the House and the Supreme Court and the judges on the Voice. Sometimes it is "the conscious" of one otherwise conservative legislator.

But to better understand this look at the Dems. How many times has a rightwing measure gone through because Dems have aided it (when it would have failed otherwise). How many times did the Dems get stopped by procedural nonsense?

There are issues where the GOP isn't allowed to win and there are issues where the Democrats aren't allowed to win. When you look at those areas the political desires of our ruling class become apparent. Low taxes with a lot of loopholes for the wealthy, and a very, very friendly attitude toward big business. However, the GOP is never allowed to win a social issue. No matter how many Justices Trump appoints abortion will never be endangered. These general policies clearly matches up with the preferred policy choices of the large donors.

321 The solution is an executive order banning all US communication networks from carrying data from companies which use the networks to influence US elections without registering with the FEC.

The is the approach being used against chyna, and it could apply here too.

Tell twitter to F. O. and get by without airwaves (public controlled) or utilities. Then go down the list to the other companies.

Make them BEG the feds to turn their platforms into public space where free speech is upheld (like,... malls.)

Also, I heard Scott Adams say we need to force companies like tiktok release their algorithm. (ie, open source it to prevent manipulation.) I have been saying that for about a decade re. facebook, amazon, google search,,...

322 163 Not sure all the people f-cked by the railroads tariffs wouldn't recognize this.

Well there was a lot of bad in the Gilded Age too, but my point is that there's none of the good in this one. We got railroads and bridges and electricity and dams and all the rest from the Gilded Age.

In this one we get... another Call of Duty, but this time with the OK symbol banned.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 23, 2020 05:56 PM (KZzsI)

Yes. What I mean by Gilded Age II is too complicated to explain well in this forum and too prone to misunderstanding. That is why I clipped the name, but I just couldn't resist when this subject arose.

326 Lee Atwater understood this in the 80s. This is not R v. D, or even rich v. poor. It is productive class v. the leech class.

Basically, everyone in DC is leech class. Most working for gov. are leech class. Everyone on welfare is leech class. AND, much of the wealthy are leech class. (certainly everyone working for their foundations is.)

This was the Reagan revolution. Problem is that that squelched the leach class down enough that the leeches went to ground and concentrated their efforts (academia, increased immigration, ccp buggery, etc.) and have risen.

Of course it will be buried. Nothing changes as long as people are capable of, generally, making a living. That is what's so bizarre about 2020. Look at it this way. America has only worked these last 20 years because of bread and circuses. It kept the average person from needing to take a really hard look at what our leadership was doing. However, in 2020 the establishment decided it was a really good idea to attack the bread and the circus. This policy change is frightening, and means that something is about to fundamentally change.

They seem incompetent and to have gotten in way over their heads, but how did incompetent morons beat us time after time? There were brains there once, but it doesn't matter because I don't think they can stop this now, that it's started, and Trump doesn't appear eager to save them from all those little tigers they created and tried to ride.

335 Let's explore how to redefine social media to something else. They do NOT produce their content, they distribute it. Perhaps a new category - apart form "the press" - could be defined. Their monopolistic policies should then be regulated like utilities.
