It’s a big week for all the folks who think George Orwell’s “1984” isn’t a novel, it’s a how-to guide.

First up, the Republican National Committee accused Google of trying to interfere with the midterm elections by sending 22 million of their fundraising and get-out-the-vote emails to spam folders so that recipients will never see them. Google claims this is entirely nonpartisan, but the RNC cites a study that found Google routes Republican emails to spam at a rate 820% higher than similar Democrat emails. Remember when Google’s motto was “Don’t be evil”? Boy, that sure seems like a long time ago.

This next story is described as a “bombshell,” but only because it confirms what many of us have long suspected, and what we wrote about in this newsletter.

https://www.westernjournal.com/bombshell-feds-paid-companies-silence-trump-family-supporters-social-media-around-2020-election/

We now know more details thanks to an investigative report by JustTheNews.com that exposes the successful effort by various unelected federal officials and a group ironically named the “Election Integrity Project,” which collected a lot of our taxpayer dollars to help censor 20 conservative news outlets during the 2020 presidential election. These included Just The News, as well as the New York Post, the Epoch Times, the Washington Times and others. They also identified a list of alleged “repeat spreaders” of “mis- and disinformation,” that included President Trump, his sons and a number of conservative media figures.

I assume they mean “misinformation” like New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop expose that unimpeachable liberal outlets like CNN and the New York Times falsely branded as “Russian disinformation” – at least until long after Joe Biden was safely elected, and now they admit the Post story was correct.

Please read the entire story at the link, and follow the links in it to the Just The News report and the original study it’s based on from the Foundation For Freedom. It shows that the rather absurd “Disinformation Czar” lady who was dumped after her weird combination of Mary Poppins and Big Brother spooked the nation was only the tip of the iceberg. She was an attempt by various federal agencies to put an official title and an organizational structure onto their long-running, widespread, unconstitutional and covert effort to monitor, suppress and criminalize free speech. Her quick ejection hardly spelled an end to that nefarious effort, just a frustrating minor setback. Rest assured, the unholy alliance of Deep State censors and biased private media companies continues, and will only grow like kudzu until a Republican Congress and President can come into power and rip it out by the roots.

Side note: I’m almost disappointed to see that a search of the report turned up only two mentions of my name, both for allegedly repeating such “misinformation” as concerns about the reliability of Dominion voting machines. I’m proud that we’re so accurate, but I would also take pride in being on these awful peoples’ enemies list. As for the examples they cite, as much as liberals love the words “context” and “nuance,” they completely missed it in our case.

For instance, we didn’t “spread” claims that Dominion voting machines were rigged or hackable. We merely reported the fact that many people were suspicious of the machines, and in the interest of citizens having faith in elections, called for a complete and transparent investigation – which, by the way, we’ve still never had. Instead, we’ve seen a lot of untrustworthy liberal media outlets slandering anyone who voices such concerns while the principals fight like demons in court to keep from allowing anyone to look at the records.

That’s certainly a great way to build trust in the system, as borne out by polls showing that even after nearly two years of the media bullying us to parrot that any suspicions about the 2020 election are a “Big Lie,” a recent CBS poll found that 32% of Americans think there were widespread fraud and irregularities, only 28% think there were none, and only 64% believe Biden was the legitimate winner.

Before the press starts yelling, “Republican disinformation,” I’d love a poll to find out how many Democrats believe Trump was the legitimate winner in 2016. We know Hillary Clinton wasn’t one of them.

Next, in the grand tradition of school boards writing to Attorney General Merrick Garland to ask him to treat upset parents as “domestic terrorists,” the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Association and the Children’s Hospital Association have written to Garland, requesting federal action against opponents of “transgender” surgery and chemicals for kids. They call this “evidence-based health care,” but we non-quacks call it “child abuse for money.”

As usual in these cases, this is painted in black-and-white terms, with the criticism of their barbaric practices described as death threats, bomb threats and other threats of violence. To be clear: none of that is acceptable, and anyone who makes such threats against anyone else deserves to be investigated by law enforcement. But pardon me if, having seen this scenario too many times before, it appears to be yet another example of painting all legitimate criticism as “threats” and all objections to their pronouncements as “disinformation” in order to abuse government power to arrest, deplatform and silence their critics, even those who never threatened anyone.

From COVID protocols to the mutilation of children, we are plagued with the most arrogant, least expert “expert” class since the Dark Ages. They are so cocksure that they’re right about everything that one particular overpaid example even declared that he WAS “Science” and should not be questioned. Or there’s this UN official who thinks the UN “owns the science” on climate change.

And California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who never met a leftist totalitarian edict he didn’t like, has signed into law a state bill penalizing doctors for spreading alleged “misinformation” about COVID (I look forward to seeing Dr. Fauci prosecuted under it. Only kidding; I actually look forward to the SCOTUS striking it down as unconstitutional.)

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/lincolnbrown/2022/10/03/newsom-signs-a-bill-to-persecute-doctors-n1634175

Here’s how “science” (and medicine used to be a science before it was politicized) works: it’s the very process of questioning and testing the orthodoxy. If a million pompous jackasses with multiple degrees believe one thing, and a smart high school dropout working out of his garage proves them wrong, then garage guy is the one who’s right. Anyone who declares “The science is settled,” might as well be saying, “I don’t know what ‘science’ is.” Look at all the things the CDC is now admitting about COVID vaccines, spread and treatments that got you censored for “disinformation” a year ago.

As for the doctors who think the permanent mutilation of confused children is a “best practice” that must not be questioned, I have a book to recommend to them that perfectly describes their mindset. It’s called “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus” by Mary Shelley. It’s about a doctor who mistakenly believes he’s God.

Finally, Stewart Baker at Reason.com compiles a list of some of the most prominent attempts to censor speech by social media companies just in the past week.

One update: YouTube has restored the video they censored of a speech by incoming conservative Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni. They claim that upon closer review (which I read as “public outrage and widespread bad publicity after people noticed"), they determined that it did not violate their “community guidelines” after all. Imagine that.

    Mike,
    I appreciate your comment about the new Italian Prime Minister. She certainly can get people stirred up with her speeches. I just hope she can do enough to get Italy’s Economy better. I also like the new British Prime Minister. I wish the best in a really difficult job.
    Thanks for your comments and God Bless,

    Gavin Newsom is a disease that the people of California had an opportunity to eradicate but chose to let it fester and turn into what it is now, a pestilence upon the population of the state of California and in no small way, on to America! Proof that no other state should ever do anything like what anything is done in California. He is like a younger version of Joe Biden, in that everything he has done has turned out to be very bad for his state and the people who have no choice but to stay there and try to exist without stepping in ***t on the streets and sidewalks of once beautiful cities while paying huge taxes for the privilege to do so! Any one whose supporting people like him should have their heads examined or sent back to grade school to learn about economics and the difference between socialism and the dangers of “free handouts” for everyone for life and capitalism, and what it means to be able to make a living on your own without a huge government telling you everything you do is what we say it is! 1984 is coming to be a reality and it’s not good! Somewhere George Orwell has to be saying— I tried to warn them!

    It’s not just Google that sends certain emails to spam. AT&T, which I have used just slightly less time than AOL, (so you can understand how old I am), has been notorious for sending any email I have not specifically marked as “not spam” with certain subjects or email addresses, to my spam folder. Some, I am not surprised by, at least since 2016, anything containing Trump, Republican, Guns, or Conservative has gone to spam, after I removed it or put the address in my contact list. Not surprisingly Huckabee ended up there as well. However, emails from “amozone” “Senior singles” etc. just fly on through.
    By about 2020, emails I had been getting for years from organizations like My Utmost for His Highest, or subjects and emails containing Christian, Bible, or anything church or devotional related also started going to spam. I lodged several complaints, and it lightened up for a while, but then started again. So, I check my inbox each day and also my spam folder. There are more big tech censors who are carrying out big gov’s and Satan’s plans than people know.
    Bless you and yours.

    Forget strong spirit of delusion. I think they've all been drinking from the same polluted demonic well. That's why I refer to them as demoncrates . Other than this country headed for God's judgment, it's a final wakeup call for the American church to turn from their evil whoring worldly ways, repent and start being God's church again. The scripture says if my people who are called by my name (CHRIST-IANS) WILL humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways. He wasn't talking about the worldly folks, or like some wish to brush it off to,Israel, God was specifically referring to those know by Christ name who have so whored an polluted the gospel that ya can't see or tell the difference between the two.

    Is it just a commercial? 'I put my faith in GOLD."

    WHAT?! I was shocked and fearful for you. You do know better. I hope you just fell into a trap of the devil and regret it. It is rather easy...but ... you know the future of the one world economy. One's FAITH is ONLY in GOD. You shall have no other God's before Me.

    Not gonna make any money off of that endorsement that profits eternally.

    Sorry. Just had to say the obvious. I don't normally watch commercials.
