BIG TECH DEVELOPING "HATE SPEECH ENGINEERING"

Facebook and Twitter should’ve thought twice before they censored the NEW YORK POST’s big story about the revelations on Hunter Biden’s laptop. The POST isn’t taking this lying down.

Editor Sohrab Ahmari is working on an expose about the censorship-related work going on at Facebook right now involving at least half a dozen Chinese nationals –- “machine learning” specialists working in America on H-1B visas –- on a team called (I am not kidding) Hate Speech Engineering.

Ahmari learned from a Facebook insider, a former employee who came forward last week, that this is where those mysterious algorithms are created that automatically suppress speech. Ahmari said on Tucker Carlson’s Tuesday night show that this person was “alarmed” at what Facebook had done to censor the POST and wanted to “shed light on the people who are actually behind the mechanics of how stories get censored on Facebook.”

The Hate Speech team is based mostly in Seattle, he said. Ahmari’s source provided him with a complete directory of those working on this, and that’s when he saw the number of Chinese nationals on the team. The concern, of course, is not that they’re Chinese, but that they’re here on loan from a nation ruled by the Chinese Communist Party, one of the most censorious governments on the planet. What skills did they bring with them to apply at Facebook, and what technology did they learn at Facebook to take back to their own repressive leaders?

Something interesting about the Biden story that Facebook and Twitter worked so hard to suppress: IT INVOLVES CHINA. Specifically, Chinese billionaires and the CCP were allegedly using Hunter Biden’s high-level U.S. government connections to make inroads. Facebook said in a statement that any allegations that these Chinese nationals “have an outsized influence on our broader policies is absurd.”

Okay, but it seems to me that the issue isn’t whether or not they’re influencing Facebook’s “broader policies” or if that influence might be “outsized,” however we might define that. Facebook surely shapes its own policy. The issue is whether Facebook’s policy involves censorship, especially of political speech, and whether the CCP shares those same ends enough to form a kind of partnership. I think in business the word is “synergy.”

The insider told Ahmari that Facebook is looking specifically to snag what they call “borderline content.” That’s not a reference to the dangerous content that needs to be dealt with responsibly, like nutzoid calls for violence and how-to’s for making bombs, but to opinions they don’t share. When you’re searching, they’ll give you the content THEY want you to see and put the “borderline content” way, way down at the very end. And if the engineers can get you to interact with what THEY want you to see, they receive “discretionary bonuses,” according to this insider.

This is not fiction; it’s life in 2020. Here’s another story on the Hate Speech Engineering team.

It’s not just Facebook doing this, of course. Twitter and Google don’t hide their efforts to shape the narrative and suppress speech they don’t like, either. Some good news: it’s taken a while, but as of Tuesday the Department of Justice is suing Google over its use of “anticompetitive tactics.” According to Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, “This is the biggest anti-trust case in a generation, maybe in a century.” He said that after we’ve seen them try to buy the election with all the money they’ve spent on the Biden campaign, this is about standing up to Big Tech and saying they don’t get to run this country. When he saw the title of the case, United States v. Google, he said, “God bless America!”

Can I hear an amen!

Michael Goodwin at the POST has a spectacular editorial on Big Tech and all the anti-Trump media working to pave the way for Biden.

As long as Michael Goodwin is on a roll, I also recommend his editorial from a few days ago on the allegations against the Bidens.

The way we try to tell the story here, and the way Goodwin and the folks at the POST are telling it, is simple, really. This is so transparent –- we see quite plainly what the Bidens have been doing for years, and it’s totally corrupt. That’s why those who are invested in a Biden win –- not to have him as President, of course, just to have him WIN –- have only one hope: that they can keep enough people out of reach of this information until after the election, or at least to lie and spin it enough to delay the inevitable. And that’s where Facebook, Twitter, Google and the rest of Big Tech and Big Media come in.

If you want to see how reporters are expected to slant their questions, Miranda Devine, also from the NEW YORK POST, tells how CBS reporter Bo Erickson was criticized by “journalism” instructor and news editor Steve Holzer after Erickson dared to ask Joe Biden about the emails on Hunter’s laptop. (That was the question that Joe responded to angrily, dismissing the story as a “smear.”) Holzer tweeted: “Bo, this is your News Director. The right question is, ‘What do you think of the report that Rudy Giuliani used Russian disinformation to try to smear your family 19 days before an election?”

Do you see what he did there? He took the emphasis off the real story –- the revelations on Hunter Biden’s laptop –- and turned it to tar Giuliani instead. He also “assumes facts not in evidence” by calling this Russian disinformation. Extra credit for making Biden the victim. If you see how this works and possess this level of skill, you get an A+ and are ready to go to work for CNN.

But...THIS IS NOT CNN...so here’s more on the real story: the emails and what they tell. It doesn’t look good. In these emails (not those on Hunter’s laptop but those obtained by Peter Schweizer), Hunter’s business associate Jason Galanis apparently refers to Joe Biden as the “other currency” they were bringing to the table. Reading between the lines, it seems Hunter’s business associates were simply using him as a “direct pipeline” to his father. Hunter’s own emails suggest that Joe “the big guy” Biden was getting a big cut.

It’s a fascinating read, one that many in the media would like to keep you from seeing. We apologize for all the hate speech.

GOOD NEWS

A suspect has been arrested in the shocking and un-American assault on Philip Anderson, the African-American man who got his teeth knocked out by an Antifa thug for organizing a pro-free speech rally in San Francisco. The suspect reportedly has a background in both violent radical left movements and general criminality. He’s being held on $110,000 bond and for once is facing actual serious charges of mayhem and hate crime enhancement. If the local DA’s won’t throw the book at him, I remind the feds that violence to prevent someone from exercising a Constitutional right is a federal offense.

Astoundingly, while the attacker used fist-on-teeth to try to silence Anderson’s free speech, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter all eliminated his accounts. Why they're punishing the victim isn’t clear. Maybe he was “distributing misinformation” by telling people what dangerous leftist thugs actually did to him. Congratulations to those Silicon Valley tech censors for finding a way to deprive him of his free speech even more effectively than the thug did, and without having to scrape their delicate knuckles on his teeth.

Anderson showed remarkable strength of character by saying he harbored no grudge against his attacker because “he’s been brainwashed.” That’s a wonderful act of Christian forgiveness, but I’m not ready to forgive the social media companies until they stop unrepentantly engaging in doing the brainwashing.

NO SURPRISE

Anyone who’s surprised to learn that Joe Biden’s former policy adviser for Ukraine is now working on content regulation for Facebook, one of the platforms that’s barring any mention of the Hunter Biden laptop story, raise your hand. But don’t make the “Okay” sign with your fingers or you’ll be banned from Facebook.

DUMB RANTS

Proving that literally everything President Trump does sends his critics into an irrational, foaming-at-the-mouth rage, this time he got them into full-on Twitter rant mode by…putting money in the collection plate at a church? Yep, you read that right.

NEVER-TRUMPERS LAYOUT WHY THEY WERE WRONG

Some former never-Trumpers are coming around and laying out solid reasons for why they were wrong. Here, Ben Shapiro explains why he’s voting for Trump now when he didn’t in 2016:

Even Glenn Beck, who once compared Trump to Hitler, wrote a Twitter thread listing all of Trump’s accomplishments that had completely changed his mind.

Beck’s mea culpa inspired others to list the reasons why they’ve become Trump supporters, despite the 24/7 negative media onslaught.

So in the spirit of equal time, please feel free in the comments to tell me why you supported Trump in 2016 but are now voting for Joe Biden.

Anyone?...Anyone?...Bueller?...

SCIENCE!

The “Streisand Effect” has been scientifically proven real. A study by MIT estimates that by trying to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, Twitter and Facebook nearly doubled the visibility it otherwise would’ve had. Or as everyone’s grandma knew, the surest way to get people to want to see something is to tell them they’re not allowed to see it. Science!

RED PILL ALERT

Rapper 50 Cent got a look at what his tax rate would be under Joe Biden and angrily took to Twitter to declare, “WHAT THE (BLEEP)? (VOTE FOR TRUMP)…I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people, 62% are you out of ya (BLEEP)-ing mind.”

Aside from the foul language and the false narrative that “Trump doesn’t like black people” (as Trump accurately says, he’s done more for African-Americans in less than four years than Joe Biden’s done in 47 years), this is a great example of someone becoming genuinely “woke” to reality.

Candace Owens had more to say on this subject that’s well worth listening to and sharing, particularly with any friends who don’t understand that Joe Biden’s tax plans will leave them with about 50 Cent in their bank accounts.

Okay, after all the phony townhalls packed with “undecided” Democrat operatives, I’m asking in all sincerity: are ANY of the people who appear on TV shows or ads related to Joe Biden actually who they claim to be? Because here’s yet another one who isn’t.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    Dear Governor:

    Regarding the upcoming Presidential debate, if I were Trump, I'd stand at the rostrum, and at the first question say,
    "Dear moderator, you, and the rest of the (no expletives needed) media and the Commission on Presidential Debates did or were willing parties to changing the topics and rules, to arrange a biased attempt to hijack both the debates and the election for the office of President of the United States. That’s why the people should select a neutral moderator in the first place. For your willing part in this fiasco, you're fired, and I'll have nothing to do with you ever again ! I also demand the resignation of all members of that commission, probably to repress questions about Biden’s involvement in lucrative family business ties with foreign adversaries.

    Mr. Biden, you've been both a party to and an accessory to national slander and attempted character assassination, both by the contrived false stories of Russian collusion and name calling insults and accusations. Not only that, the evidence is now clear that you and others at the highest levels of executive and legislative government did use the same methods to rig a falsely based Presidential expulsion by the House of Representatives - which I consider treasonous.

    You, Mr. Biden, along with your son Hunter have used your office and government assets (especially transportation and travel expenses) to collude with the Chinese government in highly criminal fashion, which I personally also consider treasonous.

    Mr. Biden, since you, your party and the media have been party to these things, I consider it not only appropriate but obligatory that not only I, but the nation, demand your withdrawal from candidacy for the office of President of the United States - right now !

    This debate fiasco is over !”

    What are the differences between James Comey and Chris Wray? Comey FBI director 2013 - 2017 Wray 2017- to the present. Wrong question no differences. How similar are the two? Very similar. No way are we as a country going too clean the Agencies until you Rid the Heads of the FBI CIA and the rest of these Directors out and away from these offices put them in Gitmo for a few years under guard until it is clear to start the organizations clean honest and with integrity. While in Washington DC the use of the word respect is code for criminal. Remember when a politician uses the word respect run, dishonesty is right behind it and corruption is on its shoulder Its not just Biden the complete network of DC is beyond the term Swamp it is a Nuclear wasteland. Mike we as citizens are lucky to get only a glimpse of of the deceit and dishonesty in DC as the collusion , the impeachment , the stimulus package the Biden ads for Presidency Obama coming out of his mansions obtained on a government salary to bad mouth America well facts are facts and DC distorts most of them.

    I agree that Trump is a much better candidate than Joe Biden, as well as better than Hillary Clinton four years ago. I surely would rather a candidate like you who shares my values. Is it truly a lost cause in getting the two parties to nominate strong candidates that share our countries values rather than those that are corrupt or reality television stars.

    We, like Mr Anderson, proudly fall into the "exiled" category from woke SM "publishers" such as "twitwit", "fakebook" et al, more than once, for having the "oranges" to "suggest" that @jack, zuck the cuck, and Quid Pro Joe should join one another in "taking a long walk off a short pier." This was, horror of horrors, labeled "hate speech" and "incitement to violence." This conclusively demonstrates that libtards have no sense of "tongue in cheek(s)" humour whatsoever! ROTFLMFAO

    I have been saying for years that Obama has sold us out to China! And I know now I am right! Biden was in on the scheme as well as Hillary and Bill! Their get rich scheme! Please God help Trump win and get the facts out so Biden followers will see what a criminal he is!!!!

    I keep up in all the real new. Your news letter is on of them.
    I have realized it is a spiritual war for the heart and soul of the nation.
    No matter who wins I foresee a permanent rift.
    Churches are already dividing and where I live most churches are full of haters of all that is American BLM and Antifa have succeeded in decimating the Pacific Northwest. I live in Vancouver Washington. The leftists are moving and making it a haven for the CRC crowd
    Like ancient Israel I see only God can deliver us.
    So much outright lying being accepted as truth

    There's no way someone like Hunter Biden could have set these deals up on his own. Honest Joe had to have set them up and put Hunter in there to collect the dough. In addition there was the equally fishy contract Honest Joe's brother got contract to build houses in Iraq. Maybe Honest Joe is not so honest.

    Question that has not been answered by FOX NEWS or the Social Media or Main Stream Media. Who sent the original pictures and videos found on Hunter Biden's laptop.

    UPON READING THIS EMAIL, WHAT GOT MY "AMEN!" IS WHERE YOU STATED : "Anderson showed remarkable strength of character by saying he harbored no grudge against his attacker because 'he’s been brainwashed.'". AND the REASON this statement evoked my amen is BECAUSE:

    BY Anderson's saying he harbored no grudge against his attacker, he bore witness to the kind of unconditional, AGAPE, love that enables us to obey our Lord's command to "love our enemies" and, WHEN ARTHUR BROOKS TRIED TO TELL PRESIDENT TRUMP, at that National Prayer Breakfast, THAT.....because Jesus told us TO love our enemies..... THAT THE ONLY ANSWER TO UNIFYING THIS COUNTRY WAS TO ANSWER HATRED WITH LOVE, WHEN, IN RESPONSE, TRUMP SAID HE COULD NOT LOVE THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY HIM, WHAT HE WAS SAYING, IN REALITY, IS.....UNLIKE ANDERSON...THAT HE COULD NOT FORGIVE THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY HIM!

    AND because Trump does not "know" agape love , he did not understand that, while to show forgiveness toward someone who has hurt us IS an act of His UNCONDITIONAL love, this does NOT mean that we should let people get away WITH sinning against us because, to state it for the Nth time, while His love ALWAYS loves the sin, it also always hates the sinner's sin!

    When someone CANNOT, like Anderson, forgive the one who has hurt him, it means, unlike Anderson, he DOES "harbor a grudge" against him, which brings along WITH it, feelings of anger, and hatred, which wind up hurting HIM more than the one he cannot forgive...that is unless he allows those feelings to INFLICT harm ON the one who has hurt him!

    IN ADDITION, Anderson's ability to forgive his attacker's sin against him..... because he COULD see it as the end -product of his attacker having been "brainwashed" ...blessed my heart because I remember how I heard a man of God once say that what helps him have compassion on someone who hurts....or sins against..him is that he sees that one doing so because he has been a victim of (or brainwashed by) SATAN'S lies...and everything else that is of Satan and, therefore, evil....(like hatred that wants TO answer hatred WITH hatred rather THAN with His brand of unconditional love).....and, therefore, he feels sorry FOR this one who HAS been so victimized by Satan! Do I hear an amen?

    One of the endearing characteristics of Republicans is that we are naive and want to believe the best in people and not the worst. Unfortunately, the last four years have taught me that our government, especially our Democrat leaders and our FBI cannot be trusted. Case in point, the Hunter Biden/China connection and the “discovery” of Hunter’s laptop with loads of damning photos and emails. Isn’t it possible that the laptop was planted by the FBI because they knew that Trump and Republican pundits would talk about nothing else until Election Day rather than talk about the President’s accomplishments? So far, Republicans have proven them correct. It is non stop Joe and Hunter everyday. There will be plenty of time to talk about them after the election if Trump wins but if Joe wins all of this is going to be a moot point. The story will go away, the Chinese has all of us in their clutches and America as we know it disappears.

    Mike, I have always respected you and voted for you for President. I'm shocked that you said the Biden situation with Hunter is to complicated for average voter. I'm average and we fully understand and it does matter to us commoners. We can decipher more than one thing at a time. Your sounding like a typical politician who thinks we are stupid. I am disappointed in you as is my brother in Georgia who worked on your campaign. If you can't trust Mike Huckabee, there is no one to trust.

    1)?
    2)?
    3)?
    4)?
    5)?
    Hmm. Can't think of any. I suppose I will continue to support him in 2020.

    Governor Huckabee, as usual you are right on the mark! Thank you for being a true friend to those of us who truly care about this country. I would like to echo again what you said a couple of days ago. FOLKS DON'T LISTEN TO ONE WORD THE PUNDITS SAY THAT TRUMP IS BEHIND IN THE POLLS. TRUMP IS GOING TO WIN BUT ONLY IF WE DON'T BUY THE LEFT'S LIES AND VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN!!!! I went to the polls in person yesterday here in Denver, Colorado which in the past has been Democrat. My wife and I made sure that we voted and that our vote was accounted for. NO FUNNY STUFF!! I'm not playing around. I'm going to make sure President Trump and the Republicans win. I don't care HOW much money the left throws at this election we are still going to win! Period!

    In the Biden ad, Malcoun blames Trump's COVID-19 response for his business going in the tank, but he is in Michigan, and should blame Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. According to the info discussing the ad, it appears that he praised the governor's lockdown (which has since been declared unconstitutional).

    Are people connected to Facebook and Twitter like people trapped by Time Shares contracts? If not why not just withdraw from them. How much does FB depend on people using it's product why not use another product. Does Bing still exist? I text and get emails FB allows people to send messages I try to respond or post most of the time it doesn't work for me. Too bad for me I like most of the people that send messages they probably think I don't care because of no response.

    I think legal immigration for 60 million since 1965 is enough. The US has more proportionally than any other country. I believe that this is one of the biggest causes of this country’s problems. As for Beck and Shapiro, if you do any research they both have been brutal for years to the President. I have zero respect for either.

    For a chilling and informative documentary on how the social media is not only censuring conservative content, but manipulating the young skulls full of mush (as Rush would say) to hate America, love socialism, and think that violence is a productive platform to further their cause, check out "Social Dilemma." One thing they all have in common is they're God haters and as your readers know, they need Jesus to change their hearts of stone into hearts of flesh. If we all pray for them, perhaps they will step out of darkness into the light of Christ.

    IF Biden manages to get in with Voter Fraud he won't last six months and will be removed for "medical" reasons (reasons that should have got responsible people not to vote for him in the Primaries.
    Guess what? Prissy on the half shell becomes Prez and has to nominate a VP... want to guess her initials are HRC and she will find some way to get rid of Prissy that she can use to attack her political oppenents?
    If you think that is a streach think Ruby Ridge and Waco and the Clintons constantly blaming their political opponents for National tragedies like Columbine (NRA) and OK CitY (Conservative Talk Show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mike Huckabee)??
