US Democrat Presidential Hopeful Attacks Big Tech Censorship

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has released a new video calling for Americans from both sides of the aisle to unite and fight political censorship by the Big Tech monopolies.

Rep. Gabbard recently filed a $50 million lawsuit against Google for censoring her campaign’s ability to buy ads following the first Democratic primary debate when she was the most searched candidate.

“Join me in this fight to end big tech monopolies power to censor & undermine Americans’ freedom of speech—because whether we are progressives or conservatives, left or right, if we do not stand united to protect our freedoms, we all lose,” Rep. Gabbard tweeted.

Far Left Fascist Students Force US College To Ban Free Speech

“Far left fascists, isn’t that a contradiction?” you might well ask. Many people might think so, but fascism is not a political philosphy in the way that communism, socialism, liberalism or conservatism are, it is about centralised power, in fact the word derives from a latin word, Fasces, which is a symbol of unbreakable authority. Fascism is authoritarianism, and politics of right or left can be authoritarian. In this article, from National Interest blog an example of the fascism of left wind students is presented:

Williams College Kowtows to Students Saying ‘Free Speech Harms’

authored by Jonathan Butcher

In 1755, Ephraim Williams Jr. led colonial forces and some 200 Mohawk allies into battle against French and Indian troops near Lake George, New York. But Williams marched into a deadly ambush.

He was killed in the fight, and his troops were driven back, suffering tremendous losses. But history records that those under his command fought bravely and made “a very handsome retreat.”

Today, the college that bears Williams’ name has been ambushed by its own students, and school officials have beaten a hasty and inglorious retreat.

At Williams College in Massachusetts, biology professor Dr. Luana Maroja wrote online last year that she was concerned about student and administrator attitudes regarding free speech.

She gathered more than 100 faculty signatures on a petition calling for the school to adopt what is known as the “Chicago Principles,” a statement in favor of free expression developed by the University of Chicago.

More than 60 schools have endorsed this statement, a welcome response to the disrupted events and other nonsense that have plagued universities around the country.

Some Williams students will have none of it. Maroja says that more than a dozen of them barged into a faculty meeting last November holding signs such as “free speech harms” and saying faculty were trying to “kill” the students.

 

After that, tensions escalated. The College Fix reports that a professor subsequently “threatened violence” if Williams adopted the Chicago statement. All this because Maroja dared to promote the idea that Williams should maintain a “climate of mutual respect.”

Williams is a private school, so the First Amendment doesn’t automatically apply to institutional activity there as it does on public college campuses. Still, students should expect that the school would want to promote the civil exchange of ideas.

And when discussions devolve into threats of violence, it’s small wonder that students opt to pursue truth via hysterical rhetoric and physical confrontation rather than through discussion and debate.

If you expected the college administration to stand up for free speech and mutual respect, think again. Earlier this week, Williams’ officials waved a white flag and announced the school will not adopt the Chicago statement but draft “speaker invitation guidelines.”

Turning away from principles protecting free speech adds to suspicions that there is a free speech crisis—or worse—at Williams.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation of the college after its student government denied a pro-Israel student group official status.

As activity on campuses around the U.S. in recent years demonstrates, when individuals cannot express themselves without fear of harm, oppressors will threaten—and commit—harm.

A recent survey of college students found that more than half of respondents say shouting down speakers is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable. Sixteen percent of respondents say it is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable to use violence to stop a speech protest or rally.

These responses are disturbing. Civil society—life in the office, in your neighborhood, at your child’s soccer game—depends on people tolerating those who do not share their beliefs, not trying to silence them through intimidation or violence. The American dream dies if we live in fear of persecution.

Williams officials should take seriously the threats posed to the next generation of adults that come from limiting the ideas that can be considered on campus.

The school should require students to attend sessions on free speech during freshman orientation—and explain that hiding from ideas with which you disagree is a poor strategy for life.

New policies for public universities in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, and Wisconsin now serve as examples of how to protect everyone’s freedom of expression in a campus community.

These policies affirm the idea that anyone should be allowed to protest or demonstrate in public areas as long as they do not prevent others from doing the same. Moreover, they stipulate that their public universities must be prepared to penalize individuals who silence others.

Generation being born now is the last to be free – Assange

via RT television:
Before his link to the world was cut by his Ecuadorian hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gave an interview on how technological advances are changing humankind. He said global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.

The interview was provided to RT by organizers of the World Ethical Data Forum in Barcelona. Assange, who is currently stranded in the Ecuadorean embassy in London with no outside communication except with his legal team, has a pretty grim outlook on where humanity is going. He says it will soon be impossible for any human being to not be included into global databases collected by governments and state-like entities.

This generation being born now… is the last free generation. You are born and either immediately or within say a year you are known globally. Your identity in one form or another –coming as a result of your idiotic parents plastering your name and photos all over Facebook or as a result of insurance applications or passport applications– is known to all major world powers.

“A small child now in some sense has to negotiate its relationship with all the major world powers… It puts us in a very different position. Very few technically capable people are able to live apart, to choose to live apart, to choose to go their own way,” he added. “It smells a bit like totalitarianism – in some way.”

The capacity to collect and process information about people has been growing exponentially and will continue to grow fast, he stated. With advancements in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to big data, the next logical step is coming.

Freedom We Must Fight For

I haven’t much time for Dutch nationalist politician Geert Wilders, anyone with such a silly haircut can never be trusted. Still, Wilders does talk a lot of sense on some topics and is worth listening too. Especially as his warnings about current threats to democracy and freedom are based on the memories of living under a brutal, authoritarian tyranny related to him by people who experienced such a life when they were young adults.

Wilders spoke on why we should be prepared to fight for our freedom on the seventy third annivesary of The Netherlands being liberated from Nazi rule.

“Seventy-three years ago, the totalitarian ideology of Nazism was defeated and the Dutch people regained their freedom after five terrible years of suffering and oppression. Today is Liberation Day. On this day, we celebrate liberty and democracy. We also remember our parents and we honour all those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

On a day like this, we are acutely aware that freedom demands a price. The price of eternal vigilance. No-one expressed this better than Ronald Reagan when he said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Today, a new totalitarianism is threatening our country. The ideology of Islam. I am not talking about Muslims. They are individuals who can be moderates, but the ideology of Islam cannot. Its founder Muhammed gave the order to conquer the whole world for Allah and to impose Islamic holy law on everyone, including on non-Muslims. The fate of non-Muslims in the Islamic world is the fate which awaits us if we are not careful.

For over 15 years now, I have been warning against the totalitarian doctrines which are being spread in mosques and Islamic schools in the Netherlands and elsewhere in the West. We should not turn freedom into a snake eating its own tail. If we allow freedom to an ideology which aims to destroy freedom, freedom itself will perish.

“Smart City” Projects are Really Police Extreme Surveillance Programs.

The propaganda always dresses social engineering projects aimed at enhancing the powers of the state to manipulate and control in friendly terms that seem to promise benefits to our security rather than threats to our freedom. Take the phrase “Smart Cities.”
How wonderful it will be, the authorities tell us, to live in smart cities where the streets and buildings are intelligent and will protect us from danger and from risk. We will live within the loving embrace of technology. The reality will not be like that of course …

UK one of worst nations in Western Europe for press freedom – Reporters Without Borders

7204048796_948c83c023_b

From being a leading nation for press freedom and liberal values, the UK is now one of the worst countries in western Europe with new media-muzzling laws, such as the pernicious ‘hate speech’ laws and a climate of hostility towards truthful reporting and investigative journalism, the latest issue of the Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index reveals.

The UK now only ranks 40 out of 180 in the 2018 World Press Freedom Index, an annual report compiled by highly respected non-profit organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF). It dropped to that position in the past year. RSF commented that “The position marks a “staggering” decline for the UK of 18 places since the index began in 2002.”

As well as western European nations such as Germany, Ireland and France, countries not noted for their tradition of free press, including South Africa, Jamaica, Namibia and Slovakia also outperformed Britain. Scandinavian countries had the best climates for the free exchange of information, with Norway, Sweden and Finland ranking best in the index. North Korea held the lowest ranking, below Eritrea Turkmenistan, Syria, China and Vietnam.

Recent developments in the UK including what it called an “alarming” proposal by the Law Commission to replace the Official Secrets Act with an updated Espionage Act, have curtailed the ability of the press to hold powerful people and institutions to account.” .

The move “could make it easy to jail journalists as ‘spies’ for obtaining leaked information and see them jailed for up to 14 years”, the report concluded.

RFS also criticised the Government over the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Act, saying the new law contained insufficient protections for whistleblowers, journalists and their sources.

Freedom of the press came under further threat when Home Secretary Amber Rudd proposed restrictions to encryption on messaging services such as WhatsApp and announced plans to criminalise the repeated viewing of extremist content, the organisation said.’

German politician calls on facebook to abolish free speech
A German politician has given the clearest indication yet that the political elites of the free world are ideologically much closer to Adolf Hitler’s National Socialists than the social liberalism they claim to support.

How academic debate is suppressed on science topics like Climate Change, GMOs, Pesticides and Toxicity of medicines
Intellectual intolerance and the supposed superiority of the scientific education have led not just to the politiciisation of science but to it’s being seduced by corporate money and political power.

This has led to a very unhealthy emergence of dogmas and orthodoxies and an intolerance of the dissent that is essential if scientific research is to have any credibility.

Will TTIP Make Europe A Colony Of The USA?

As well as writing most of my posts for the news site I’m on now in support of the Brexit campaign, I have also been actively opposing TTIP, the Trans Altantic Trade And Investment Partnership, a treaty negotiated in secret between EU and US bureaucrats, the drafts of which have not even been released to elected representatives of the people on either side of the Atlantic.
Fortunately, thanks to the diligence of the people at Wikileaks, we do know something of what TTIP contains, and far from being about free trade, it is in fact a big step towards a global version of what, in Benito Mussolini’s definition, can only be called fascism (collaboration between political and financial elites to create an all powerful central authority).

So if you are a supporter of fascism, vote Remain. Also, dump the hypocrisy and start identifying yourselves as fascists. If on the other hand you love freedom, democracy, your country and its culture and traditions, and you are lucky enough to live in Britain and so have a vote, join the fight against global fascism by voting OUT in the EU referendum in June.

This article via Information Clearing House will help a lot of waverers understand what the EU and TTIP are really all about.

Here’s a taster

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would Abolish Europe’s Sovereignty.

Is Madame Merkel Betraying the EU – Endangering the Lives of Future European Generations with her Push for the Nefarious TTIP?

By Peter Koenig
April 26, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “Global Research“- This incisive article first published by Global Research in December 2014 is of utmost relevance to the ongoing process of US-EU negotiation of the TTIP
Author’s Introduction and Update 

President Obama will be visiting Germany and Mme. Merkel tomorrow (24 – 25 April) for the Hannover Industrial Messe, the world’s largest Industrial fair, lobbying, in a last ditch convincing effort, Madame Merkel, of the good of the TTIP – that must be signed as soon as possible – maybe even during his upcoming trip to Europe. Everything around the infamous and nefarious TTIP is possible, as it all happens in secret and behind closed doors. 
One of the most important items on Obama’s check list before he leaves office is obtaining the signatures of the ‘free trade agreements’ – the TPP – Transpacific Partnership with 11 Asian and Pacific countries, and the TTIP – Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the 28 EU countries. The TPP is almost done. Completion of the two trade agreements – the economic enslavement of Asia (except for China and Russia who bluntly refused to join) and Europe, was one of the conditions for the top elite – call them ‘Illuminati’ – when they summoned him to a special Bilderberg meeting on 5-8 June 2008, in Chantilly Virginia (just outside Washington DC). They caught him in full campaign missing an important campaign event in Chicago. 
The purpose of the meeting was to figure out whether he is worth the money they were willing to pour into his election to make him President. He complied. His psychological profile having been profoundly analyzed before, they knew he would.

And indeed, the spineless Obama complied with all of the conditions. And they made him President at a cost of about US$ 740 million, about double of what Bush’s second term presidential campaign cost, and about half of the price of Obama’s second term presidency. 

Below  is my article published by Global Research in December 2014, on the nefarious consequences of the TTIP – to remind people what is laying ahead for Europe, if the EU and its members ratify the TTIP: Slavehood, sheer and unescapable corporate slavehood, enhanced and controlled by Goldman Sachs — and not to forget, the Rothschilds, who are the invisible hand behind the FED.  
Katherine Frisk sums up best what the TTIP would mean for Europe:
 

International “free trade” agreements such as the TTIP and the TPP which will override the National Sovereignty of any country who signs them, the Constitution of any country, their Constitutional law courts and any laws that any government may or may not make regarding health regulations, minimum wage regulations or environmental requirements. Far from being Capitalism with checks and balances restricting monopolies, it is a form of Corporate Fascist hegemonic colonialism and Corporate Empire building, eliminating all competition in the interests of monopolies.
