The financial channels are going all out to protect their hedge fund buddies. My favorite excuse so far is a CNBC host who excused Robinhood’s suspension of GameStop trading as the fault of its clients, saying they “should have read the Terms and Conditions.” In your lifetime have you or anyone you know ever read the Terms and Conditions of a website or app? I’m guessing not one single person on CNBC has either. Robinhood, TD Ameritrade, and Charles Schwab have put restrictions on trading for one and only reason–to halt the losses of their biggest customers suffering massive short squeezes (hedge funds). Everything else is smoke-filled crap.
The Democrats have already shown how serious they are about “unity” with yet another pointless impeachment sham. You’ll see more examples as they pass one bill after another without any Republicans, other than perhaps a few DC swamp creatures like Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski. I expect their next “Covid Relief Bill” to include massive bailouts of blue state governors who intentionally tanked their economies to assure Trump was voted out of office. I’m sure it will include token stimulus checks to give voters a temporary warm and fuzzy feeling, but it will primarily be a slush fund going to Democrat campaign supporters and special interests. Of course, the standard 2000-page legalese format will be used to make sure no one actually reads it, sort of like Terms & Conditions.
The market cap of Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Amazon totals roughly $7 trillion. For reference, the entire GDP of China is $13.4 trillion. Japan is 3rd with $5 trillion. These tech fascist enemies of the world are not only controlling speech & access to information, they have massive financial power on par with most nations. Politicians give them a free pass not only because of campaign contributions but also because they’re afraid of getting added to their censorship lists, not to mention having hit-job stories at the top of all search rankings. Donald Trump, for all his faults, wasn’t afraid to take them on. You saw the results–election interference, a social media purge of supporters, censoring of anti-Biden info, news feeds & search results dominated by anti-Trump hit pieces, and so on.
Contrary to popular belief, the U.S. is NOT a pure democracy. We’re a Constitutional republic. The problem with pure democracies is the majority can always vote to take away life, liberty, and property from the minority. Indeed America’s biggest sin in history–slavery–as well as the century-long quest to give blacks their rights, was a direct result of tyranny of the majority. This is specifically why we have a Bill of Rights and enumerated powers for the branches of government. In other words, the majority rules, but minorities are supposed to be protected. Right now we have a minority in this country (if you believe the election numbers) that is having their civil liberties regularly trampled on–Trump supporters and conservatives/libertarians. If one minority group can be oppressed, then any minority group can. If you’re in the majority, you may not care that nearly half the country is getting their voices squashed, but you might when one day you have an unapproved thought or opinion. Then, you might regret not having stood up for their freedoms.
We’re only weeks away from the anniversary of “15 days to slow the spread.” Mask mandates have been going on in all major businesses and almost all states for 8+ months. It blows my mind that people with a shred of critical thinking ability still buy the BS anti-freedom recommendations of Deep State buffoon, Dr. Fauci, or the CDC. You would think 26 million case study examples in the U.S. would be enough to convince people their recommendations don’t work, but there is no such thing as “science” when government, politics, and the media get involved.
Speaking of science, did you ever notice no liberal politician or media talking head can say “listen to the experts” or “follow the science” in anything but a condescending voice? Listening to experts sounds like good advice. How about experts in business, economics, and child psychology? How about all the science and medical experts who have had their voices squashed by Big Tech? How about listening to Psychology 101 teaching on operant conditioning, which explains how basic human behavior is influenced by punishment & reward, compared with the entire Biden platform of punishing producers and rewarding people who don’t work?
How long before the Big Tech Thought Police stop us from sharing any anti-climate change stories; that is, unless the stories support the narrative that the world is going to end in a couple decades unless capitalist economies are stifled? How about diets? There are plenty are diets most doctors would deem unsafe. Will we only be able to share diets recommended by the FDA? What if a random scientist on the web discovers a cure for cancer? Will we be allowed to hear it if it’s not approved by the American Medical Association? If you dismiss these as absurd, you haven’t been following how increasingly ridiculous the tech censors have been getting, especially with Covid science. Let’s remember the supposedly most well-informed organizations in the world (WHO & CDC) once told us Covid-19 didn’t spread person-to-person and that facemasks are useless. We know now that no matter how credentialed, credible, or experienced an expert is, he or she will be silenced if going against the Covid narrative of the week.
Various solutions have been floated for turning around this country, mostly directed at government and elections. I believe things will only start to change when conservatives & libertarians begin to develop parallel strength in all the agents of influence. In other words, build social media platforms not dependent on West Coast tech companies. Fund movie studios and streaming services that show something other than leftist propaganda entertainment. Develop & enhance student organizations to counter public school brainwashing. Create internet service providers that can continue to function as the Big Tech Thought Police expand their censorship. We’re in an information war, and we’re losing badly for the simple reason that our message is not getting out.
