Hamas practices a tolerant religion. They tolerate people converting to their conception of Muslim, or being murdered. Very inclusive! I see why leftists are all about it.

this is a REALLY well-written article that summarizes the state of the "free" press, and the Truly free press found in independent journalists...

1984 was just fiction


Dear Patriots,


We all read the fictional novel "1984" in high school. Today we are living in that fiction as it becomes reality.

It is time to fully embrace the facts that our government and media have been conspiring with social media platforms to manipulate and brainwash the population in order to protect the Deep State. Our first piece today lays out in chilling detail what we have been up against and continue to be.

1- A new whistleblower has released stunning documents that shows the beginning of the Censorship Industrial Complex. It grew out of The Swamp's reaction to the twin surprises of Brexit and the Trump election, in 2016. This is more than was revealed in the Twitter Files.

It is worth your time to read and understand this issue as it has massive impact on just about everything in the world. Michael Shellenberger has been researching, writing and testifying on this issue for years. Go to the link to read the entire piece about the newest evidence.

CTIL Files #1: US And UK Military Contractors Created Sweeping Plan For Global Censorship In 2018, New Documents Show

A whistleblower has come forward with an explosive new trove of documents, rivaling or exceeding the Twitter Files and Facebook Files in scale and importance. They describe the activities of an "anti-disinformation" group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League, or CTIL, that officially began as the volunteer project of data scientists and defense and intelligence veterans but whose tactics over time appear to have been absorbed into multiple official projects, including those of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The CTI League documents offer the missing link answers to key questions not addressed in the Twitter Files and Facebook Files. Combined, they offer a comprehensive picture of the birth of the "anti-disinformation" sector, or what we have called the Censorship Industrial Complex. The whistleblower's documents describe everything from the genesis of modern digital censorship programs to the role of the military and intelligence agencies, partnerships with civil society organizations and commercial media, and the use of sock puppet accounts and other offensive techniques. Another explains that while such activities overseas are "typically" done by "the CIA and NSA and the Department of Defense," censorship efforts "against Americans" have to be done using private partners because the government doesn't have the "legal authority."

The whistleblower alleges that a leader of CTI League, a "former" British intelligence analyst, was "in the room" at the Obama White House in 2017 when she received the instructions to create a counter-disinformation project to stop a "repeat of 2016. Over the last year, Public, Racket, congressional investigators, and others have documented the rise of the Censorship Industrial Complex, a network of over 100 government agencies and nongovernmental organizations that work together to urge censorship by social media platforms and spread propaganda about disfavored individuals, topics, and whole narratives.

The US Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency (CISA) has been the center of gravity for much of the censorship, with the National Science Foundation financing the development of censorship and disinformation tools and other federal government agencies playing a supportive role. Emails from CISA's NGO and social media partners show that CISA created the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) in 2020, which involved the Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO) and other US government contractors. EIP and its successor, the Virality Project (VP), urged Twitter, Facebook and other platforms to censor social media posts by ordinary citizens and elected officials alike.

Despite the overwhelming evidence of government-sponsored censorship, it had yet to be determined where the idea for such mass censorship came from. In 2018, an SIO official and former CIA fellow, Renee DiResta, generated national headlines before and after testifying to the US Senate about Russian government interference in the 2016 election.

But what happened between 2018 and Spring 2020? The year 2019 has been a black hole in the research of the Censorship Industrial Complex to date. When one of us, Michael, testified to the U.S. House of Representatives about the Censorship Industrial Complex in March of this year, the entire year was missing from his timeline.

Now, a large trove of new documents, including strategy documents, training videos, presentations, and internal messages, reveal that, in 2019, US and UK military and intelligence contractors led by a former UK defense researcher, Sara-Jayne "SJ" Terp, developed the sweeping censorship framework. These contractors co-led CTIL, which partnered with CISA in the spring of 2020.

Breuer admitted in a podcast that his aim was to bring military tactics to use on social media platforms in the U.S. “I wear two hats,” he explained. “The military director of the Donovan Group, and one of two innovation officers at Sofwerx, which is a completely unclassified 501c3 nonprofit that's funded by U. S. Special Operations Command.”

Breuer went on to describe how they thought they were getting around the First Amendment. His work with Terp, he explained, was a way to get “nontraditional partners into one room,” including “maybe somebody from one of the social media companies, maybe a few special forces operators, and some folks from Department of Homeland Security… to talk in a non-attribution, open environment in an unclassified way so that we can collaborate better, more freely and really start to change the way that we address some of these issues.”

I believe the Q movement among anons was precisely targeted to counter these assholes. It's well-known many anons are resistant to their media manipulations, precisely due to the anons' well-rounded knowledge and experience, and especially the ability to recognize patterns of behavior and communication. What's most hilarious are how weak and ineffective the assholes were against anons, and how frustrated they were that anons constantly identified them and called them out. They threw tons of time, money, and manpower at anons, and anons threw their shit right back in their faces, time and time again.

Their goddam lust for power is matched to their utter disdain for the constitution and protected rights of people. They don't care who they trample or how they do it-- the mark of totalitarianism right in front of us, and the goddam liberal idiots nod their heads in NPC approval. They are going to start a war, and patriots will again have to shed blood to protect everyone else.
