One does not have to be a climate change denier to see the politicization of climate change

Published

There aren’t two sides of the climate change story. Most seem to think there are climate change deniers and those who accept the science behind climate change claims. There’s more gray area than many realize.

Bill Whittle is known for calling out hypocrisies, but this video might actually catch some conservatives by surprise. He doesn’t follow the standard denials. Instead, he takes the prudent path of, “prove it first.” He’s right.

We won’t survive the suppression of Liberty by the Socialist-Left

We wont survive the suppression of Liberty by the Socialist-Left

The Left has a new workaround for Liberty: Dominate and shut down the marketplace of Ideas.

Let’s be blunt about it: socialism is based on lies. These begin with the lie that socialism is about freedom and Liberty. When in actuality it is about central planning of the economy and the radical redistribution of wealth requiring coercion or the threat of force, the antithesis of freedom and Liberty.

This is why the Left cannot abide free speech or the free exchange of ideas. This is why the Left has to dominate the conversation and shut down the marketplace of ideas. Glenn Beck recently highlighted an article from website spinquark: Welcome to Social Government making the point that the leadership of the dominant social media organs comes from the Left.

Social media companies aren’t held to constitutional standards because they’re private companies. But they’re also protected by the government because they’re considered “platforms,” not “publishers.” Well, the government has figured this out and has seen the power of using social media to circumvent the First Amendment and silence conservative voices.

Have you noticed how the DNC doesn’t seem at all concerned about the 2020 election, even though the Democratic candidates are pushing policies that are even too radical for the left? Why would they do that if they’re trying to win the hearts and minds of Americans? A website called Spinquark just released a chilling article that reveals exactly how many people who are directly connected to the progressive political machine are now working for big tech to control our conversations online — and they’re unquestionably interfering with the 2020 election.

[Emphasis added]

The Left’s ‘workarounds’ for Liberty.

It was in the self-defense realm that the Authoritarian Socialist Left really tuned up for their full-scale assault on Liberty. They are busily assaulting this basic human right on multiple fronts at the Federal, state and local levels. They have imposed new restrictions on Liberty as well as ever-increasing taxes on ammunition and firearms in addition to attacks against the financial underpinnings of the industry.

They also developed a new way of going after free speech, a new way of hacking Liberty. The workaround of setting up dominate media systems that pretend to be platforms while acting as publishers. Offer a ‘Free’ service [how is that for subliminal irony?] that squeezes out the competition and then squeeze out the voices of freedom. They have the best of both worlds, pretending to support Liberty while working against it.

The Takeaway.

Leftists love to play the game of pretense, exploiting labels and terms that poll positively while being of the nothing of the kind. They work against Liberty whilst casting themselves as ‘Liberal’. They dredge up ideas of ancient Greece whilst claiming to be ‘progressive’. Worse yet, they exploit the word democratic while wanting a small cadre of collectivists running the show. Their social media manipulation is one of the most egregious examples.

The suppression of Liberty by dominant social media organs means they are acting publishers while enjoying the governmental protections of being platforms. The government is already interfering in the space, providing them protection they clearly do not deserve. Removing that protection would take away that unwarranted interference while conserving Liberty. That is what we need to demand, before it is too late.

Conspiracy Theory

Alexa and other smart devices are creepier than you think

Alexa and other smart devices are creepier than you think

It annoys me when people say their smart devices are only listening to them after they say the “wake word.” If that were true, then they wouldn’t be able to hear the wake word when it was said. No, Alexa, Google Home, and the other “smart speakers” always listening, always recording, and always storing what you say in their vast cloud servers. Moreover, there are teams of people who do nothing but listen to the recordings, and that’s just among the organizations we know for sure are listening. There are likely others, perhaps unbeknownst to Amazon and Google. On the other hand, they’re probably very well aware and complicit.

But the truly scary part is the invasion of privacy millions of people agree to grant to these companies isn’t the worst part of it. Things are getting worse in a hurry as artificial intelligence and big data machine learning are rapidly emerging as the way these technologies will evolve to the point of control we’ve only heard about in science fiction and dystopian warnings. 1984 is much closer than most realize.

The great risks being taken with our future are nicely documented in this Truthstream Media video. After watching this, it would be dumb to embrace the smart speaker revolution that’s happening all around us.

Justice Democrats’ and House Democrats’ Twitter accounts engage in organizational fight

Justice Democrats and House Democrats Twitter accounts engage in organizational fight

The bitter battle between the Justice Democrats and Establishment Democrats has spilled over to their organizational Twitter accounts. While the Establishment Democrats come to the rescue of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in her quarrel with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, her Chief of Staff and co-founder of the Justice Democrats, Saikat Chakrabarti, inserted himself into the conversation.

Whoever controls the House Democrats’ Twitter account fired a low blow at Chakrabarti.

The Justice Democrats replied with a point that is actually quite valid.

Then, Chakrabarti himself made an important point.

I am never inclined to defend the Justice Democrats or Chakrabarti, but they were correct on this one issue. It was a silly attack made on an account that’s supposed to represent the entire body of the House Democrats, and as of today AOC is still part of that body. To go after Chakrabarti through that account only plays into the Justice Democrats’ notion that the Establishment is old and ready to be replaced.

Clumsy efforts by the Establishment Democrats helped the Justice Democrats score points with their base. Having the @HouseDemocrats account chime in was a rookie move. Expect Saikat Chakrabarti to take full advantage of their mistake.
