“Fake news” being used as a weaponized term to bury opposing viewpoints
Bombshell: Twitter, Google Admit Deliberately Censoring News
“Fake news” being used as a weaponized term to bury opposing viewpoints
During a House Intelligence Committee hearing into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election, Twitter General Counsel Sean Edgett brazenly admitted that Twitter censors Infowars stories in favor of mainstream media.
Edgett was asked by Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) why an Infowars story about New York Mayor Mike De Blasio ignoring warnings from an Imam about terrorist radicalization in New York appeared at the top of the #NYCTerroristAttack hashtag during the vehicle attack in Manhattan last week.
“This is a real-time example of when we talk about this information being weaponized, how quickly can you act and what’s your responsibility to set the record straight so that the people who saw this know that it’s fake news?” asked Quigley, adding that Twitter needed to prevent Infowars “spreading like some sort of virus through the legitimate world.”
Twitter Sean Edgett responded by telling Quigley, “The system self-corrected, that shouldn’t be the first tweet you see anymore, it should be a USA Today article,” before going on to assure the Congressman that only “verified accounts” and “accurate information and reporting” (in other words mainstream media only) would be seen in future.
Infowars was also attacked on Sunday when the media started a pressure campaign to have Google de-list my tweets from appearing in search results about breaking news stories. Google responded by saying they would “make some changes” to ensure this didn’t happen again.
The New York Times contacted me for a comment and I made it clear that there is no “strategy” for getting my tweets to the top of Google’s rankings – I am simply interesting and have a lot of followers. The threat of a different perspective is so threatening to the MSM and the left that they are now directly demanding tech companies bury our content in real time.

The story cited by Congressman Quigley in the clip above was also labeled “fake news” despite being completely true.
An Imam – Mohammad Tawhidi – did indeed warn De Blasio about terrorists being radicalized in New York and subsequently posted the letter to prove it.

He also felt that De Blasio ignored his warnings because he was too busy wasting “all his energy and resources in trying to bring down President Trump and not Islamic Extremists.”
Not a single aspect of this story is “fake news,” it simply makes De Blasio look bad – and that’s the point.
As Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) pointed out in the hearing, “fake news” is completely subjective. “How in the world do you intend to identify fake news without weaponizing this in the political realm?” he asked.
The entire “fake news” moral panic was an invention of the Democrats as an excuse because they lost the election, when in reality, a Stanford University study found that fake news (actual fake news websites publishing made up stories) did not influence the election and that the most widely believed fake news stories actually benefited Hillary Clinton.
Fake news is a weapon being used by the left to push censorship of anything that challenges their dogma or debunks their arguments, and Silicon Valley has indicated its willingness to jump in bed with Democrats to ensure that very outcome.

80% of “people” on Facebook and Google Are Fake People Created By Facebook and Google to Scam Advertisers
In recent news, Google and Facebook had to credit-back their advertisers because Google’s and Facebook’s user statistics had “calculation errors”. You may have heard that a few profiles on these sites were fake. The reality is that almost the entirety of these sites is fake.
The fact is: Google and Facebook are lying to advertisers in order to create billions of dollars of fraudulent ad invoices.
There are no “errors” in the calculations. Google and Facebook know that there is nobody home. For over a decade, Google, Facebook, Twitter and even the New York Times Online have been knowingly using fake people generators, many purchased as services from China via front companies.
We were in the room while Google and Facebook executives ordered these actions.
There are no “analysis errors’. There are no “rounding typos”.
There is absolute and indisputable fraud going on at Facebook and Google.
Google and Facebook are the companies whose executives rape and sexually coerce interns. They are the companies whose executives run tax evasion scams and bribe politicians. There can be no possible doubt in any person’s mind about the fact that the people who run Facebook and Google are scum and they will stoop to any depth for money and power.
Why should you care?
Because the “community” of people you think you are interacting with on the internet is all smoke.
Because the billions of dollars in fake ad billings are being used to bribe politicians to work against your interests.
Because you, and everyone else online, are being lied to.
Because Google’s and Facebook’s computerized propaganda exceeds even that of CNN, who Google and Facebook run the PR for.
You should care because crime is never good for the American public and social morality failures like this damage society as a whole.
Facebook and Google are full of “...we din’t do nuffin” hand wringing media responses but the fact is that they are liars and it can be proven in court and before Grand Juries.
Around 2010 or so Google and Facebook became “uncool” and the kids left them in the dust.
Google and Facebook had promised to steer election perceptions for all of the elections from 2008, forward, to the DNC. The DNC promised to send Google’s and Facebooks investors all of the government cash for the “climate change crisis.”
So you had a withering Google and Facebook with a trillion dollar payola deal with Obama and Clinton and no way to back up their end of the deal.
What could they do about their commitment to deliver 200 million voters to the DNC and advertisers? Make them up!
Clinton lost because Google’s and Facebook’s one trick pony only had a circus tent in California and New York. The rest of the world had written Google’s and Facebook’s relevance off long ago!
Advertisers should sue the crap out of Facebook and Google. The Government should bring charges against them. Google, Facebook and Twitter are the biggest scam in human history!
In its company filings published this week, Facebook revealed that more than 83 million of its users are 'fake,' CNET reports. Last week, in its first ...
Google’s Stock Market Pump & Dump Tech Fraud Partner: Tesla, sinks 20% from high—entering bear market territory—as concerns about 'bubble stock' mount
Technology crook and professional liar: Musk, ups the BS factor
The electric car maker's stock is down 20 percent from its all-time high in late June.
Disappointing deliveries, safety concerns, Volvo competition and negative Wall Street commentary are the factors driving the shares lower.
Tae Kim | @firstadopter
What a difference a couple of weeks make. After hitting an all-time high in late June, Tesla shares have collapsed 20 percent as of midday Thursday, due to mounting concerns about its sales results, competition and the safety of its cars.
Traders consider a 20 percent decline from an all-time high the technical definition of a bear market move.
The electric car maker's stock fell 5 percent midday Thursday, bringing losses for the week to 14 percent.
"Tesla's stock was pushed to ridiculous levels on the notion that the Model 3 would be a slam-dunk success," said Fred Hickey, editor of High Tech Strategist. The company's "$100,000+ models aren't selling as well and are piling up in inventory (the relatively small pool of potential buyers at these prices may be exhausted). This bubble stock is losing air rapidly, as it should."
Multiple Wall Street firms including Goldman Sachs, Bernstein, KeyBanc Capital and Cowen expressed disappointment over Tesla's second-quarter delivery results in notes to clients the last two days.
Goldman analyst David Tamberrino cited how Tesla's second-quarter deliveries number released Monday of approximately 22,000 cars missed his forecast of 23,500 and the Wall Street consensus of 24,200.
Tesla blamed a production issue with its 100 kilowatt-hour battery packs for the second-quarter deliveries shortfall.
"Tesla's Q2 production and deliveries report raised more questions than answers, particularly about Model S and X demand," Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi wrote in a note to clients Wednesday.
After the weaker-than-expected deliveries number, Volvo announced Wednesday that it will phase out combustion engine-only cars. The automaker's new cars will be all electric or hybrid by 2019.
"This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car," Volvo Cars Chief Executive Hakan Samuelsson said, according to a Reuters report.
The Volvo news came after a Handelsblatt Global article last week, which said BMW plans to introduce an electric version of its popular 3-Series line of sedans later this year.
In addition to the rising competition, one of the key selling points for Tesla's cars is now being called into doubt.
On Thursday, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Dave Zuby questioned Tesla's claim that the Model S is the safest car in history after a series of new crash tests.
"If you're looking for top-line safety, we believe there are other, better choices than the Model S," Zuby told CNBC.
Tesla declined to comment on this story. Its shares are up 53 percent this year versus the S&P 500's 8.7 percent return through Wednesday.
The company's market value is about $50.7 billion, which is now below General Motor's $52.7 billion, according to FactSet and clear proof that Tesla is a smoke-and-mirrors scam
