Great takedown of this stupid bitch; ask yourself, when has online speech ever bothered you at all?

Australia has an eSafety Commissioner named Julie Inman-Grant.  While delivering remarks to the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, she outlined a new on-line era where free speech would need to be “recalibrated,” and the ability to be free from something called “on-line violence.”

For the past several years we have noted a progressive, totalitarian, shift in speech, specifically a redefinition of the word “violence.”  Speech the leftists do not like, they call violence; and violence the leftists support, they call speech.   As a result, the overlay of a newly recalibrated on-line world for speech and violence would be modified accordingly.

This one is even more idiotic. Give a moron a platform and a microphone and total bullshit ensues:

Note that I am not calling for her to banned from YT. Let her talk all she wants. Australia, talk back. You do NOT want to be ruled over by casual fools like this. She is espousing basic mind control. ABN

The Twitter Bot Inquiry Intensifies as Musk is Seemingly Stiff Armed

…Taking Twitter private as a company, eliminating bots (which is essentially removing fraudulent users) then carries the potential benefits of both lowering costs and positioning the company to increase genuine ad revenue from authenticated users as real people.

Many people suspect the size of the political left on the Twitter platform is manipulated by programatic bots.  Meaning there seems to be more people on the left side of the spectrum because bots are deployed to give the impression of like-minded users.  I am one of the people who believe this suspicion is accurate, because it would be a typical way the ideological left operates.

The bots would be in addition to the deployment of algorithms that are designed to suppress speech the platform operators do not like.

I have long suspected the Twitter algorithm process is essentially assigning certain users into specifically designed data-processing containers where their voice is suppressed.   Some people call this ‘shadow-banning,’ I simply call it suppression.

Twitter Senior Engineer Talks Elon Musk Takeover in NEW Undercover Video: ‘Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech’ … Admits Employees at Tech Giant are ‘Commie as F**k’

Project Veritas published a new story on Monday night featuring footage of Twitter Senior Engineer, Siru Murugesan, discussing how employees at the tech company “hate” Elon Musk’s impending acquisition of Twitter among several other explosive soundbites.

Leaving no doubt to one of the primary sources of the rift between Musk and employees at Twitter, Murugesan at one point says: “Twitter does not believe in free speech… Elon believes in free speech.”

Murugesan: “Our jobs are at stake, he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as f**k.”

Murugesan on attempts to prevent the Musk deal: “We did all we could to like revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it.”

‘I’m on the Warpath!’ Elon Musk Expected to Axe Twitter’s Censorship Team, Become CEO After He Takes Full Control

Billionaire tech entrepreneuer Elon Musk is “on the warpath.”

Musk is now “expected to serve as a temporary CEO of Twitter for a few months after he completes his $44 billion takeover of the social media company,” according to CNBC’s David Faber.

The Tesla founder and CEO has the Woke establishment in full meltdown, even reportedly bringing the Big Tech platform’s Trump-banning chief counsel Vijaya Gadde to tears. She’s now expected to be axed.

“This is a nightmare unfolding in slow motion. And this is the point where we are going to have to draw the line: No, Joe Biden you CAN’T have the federally funded Ministry of Truth. And no, Nina Jankowicz can’t run it. PERIOD… It’s not your country. You’re not even compos mentis and you don’t get to do this to a free people. PERIOD.” Tucker Carlson

“What you’re seeing is a full scale attack on free speech in a country that has been free for nearly 250 years. And it’s happening at the direction of the US government through a law enforcement agency.” ~TC

Compos mentis means “of sound mind.” Another great essay by Carlson. ABN

“Under this stipulation, withholding info is then misinfo as well”

On the subject of covid alone, the US government is patently guilty of promulgating misinformation that caused and is still causing enormous loss of American lives. The American system is based on free speech, transparency, and open debate, all of which are also the bedrock of science. During the pandemic and still today not one single government official agreed to debate even highly respected doctors and scientists on covid issues. As a nation, we are clearly best served by robust and open debate and discussion. As a totalitarian state ruled by bureaucrats and bribery, they are best served by stifling debate, opacity, and restricting speech. On covid alone, our government’s policies have been far, far more propagandistic than scientific. ABN

White House NSA Organizes Security Summit With 50 Nation Peers to Discuss Future of the Internet

What could possibly go wrong when the National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, organizes a “minister level launch of the Declaration for the Future of the Internet.”   Put more succinctly, that would be 50 nation intelligence ministers getting together to decide what they will permit on the internet.

Apparently, a collective partner rule book is forthcoming.   Big Tech will be given specific instructions on how to comply.

The global rulebook on how to handle, define and eliminate ‘disinformation’, ‘misinformation’ and ‘malinformation’ on the world-wide internet.

More info here: Launch of the Declaration for the Future of the Internet:

On April 28 at 7:30 a.m. EDT, Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will host a virtual minister-level launch of the Declaration for the Future of the Internet at the White House with more than 50 partners from around the world.  The Declaration is a political commitment among partners to advance an affirmative vision for the Internet and digital technologies.  The launch event will be livestreamed to the public on www.whitehouse.gov/live

I don’t trust them for a second and expect them to use some illusion of consensus to impose an international standard on USA, thus subverting the First Amendment. Pretty sure the launch will be 100% PR mind-control and that Deep State-driven standards will be “agreed upon” behind the scenes. I hope Musk and Trump can find ways to avoid complying with these standards as a matter of principle and also as protection against inevitable overreach sure to come in the future. ABN

MUST READ: Deep State Response, Dept of Homeland Security Will Establish Disinformation Board with Obvious Agenda

I think we are now seeing the outlines of how the Fourth Branch of Government are planning to keep control over information, specifically public discussion on Big Tech platforms, even as Elon Musk moves to open the valves of information from the social media platform Twitter.

Previously the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced a new Dept of Homeland Security priority to combat disinformation {LINK} on technology platforms including social media.

Many eyebrows were raised as the announcement appeared to be an open admission that the U.S. government was going to control information by applying labels, that would align with allies in social media, who need a legal justification for censorship and content removal.

This CISA announcement was quickly followed by various government officials and agencies saying it was critical to combat Russian disinformation, as the events in Ukraine unfolded.  In essence, Ukraine was the justification for search engines like Google, DuckDuckGo, and social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to begin targeting information and content that did not align with the official U.S. government narrative.

Previously those same methods were deployed by the U.S. government, specifically the CDC and FDA, toward COVID-19 and the vaccination program. All of this background aligns with the previous visibility of a public-private partnership between the bureaucracy of government, the U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. social media.  That partnership now forms the very cornerstone of the DHS/CISA effort to control what information exists in the public space.  It is highly important that people understand what is happening.

Be sure to read this. It is of supreme importance that those of us who are able to understand what is happening be fully informed. This is totalitarianism.

“These people are idiots”: Ethical Skeptic

We are already seeing a sea-change in information dissemination at Twitter. And this change will affect all other information sources. The Overton Window is going to move away from scenes of cozy pseudoscience and political happy talk to a seething reality of real science and realpolitik. If Musk releases the logs and algorithms of Twitter censorship, the public will come to understand how profoundly duped they have been and by whom and by what means. ABN
