Is your Twitter account critical of US foreign policy?
Do you see through Donald Trump’s lies regarding Qassem Soleimani?
If so, then your Twitter account might be up for execution, as Twitter once again is policing and suspending any account that is critical of US foreign intervention – almost as if it’s willing to stop an alternative viewpoint from reaching mainstream status.
Twitter may lead you to believe these accounts are bots, as has been cited via many sources back in 2019. However, these accounts are from real people and organizations.
Want a few instances?
Check out the following below.
Twitter Police at Work
First off, why is Twitter at it with their endless narrative control?
Supposedly to comply with US sanctions. So I guess free speech is now banned in America where criticism of our government’s actions seeps onto social media platforms? Or, if such social media platforms believe we’re defending the manufactured enemies of America.
Now, some of you might be saying, “But Todd, I thought you were a Libertarian who believes in private property rights?” Surely, Twitter, along with Facebook and Instagram who are also part of this mess are private companies, so they have every right to do this.”
I’ll get to that later and you’ll see why most Libertarians who have a clue of what’s going on are critical of these platforms’ actions.
But first, I want to give you a few hot examples regarding what Twitter has done.
The Syrian Presidency Twitter account was restricted without warning after airing an interview with Italy’s Rai News. This Twitter post shows screenshots of the removal. This forced them to use a backup account, with a much smaller following than the original. Though the original has returned, it has thus far not tweeted as of the writing of this article.
On January 7th, 2020, Twitter suspended dozens of accounts from Venezuelan officials. This extended to accounts linked to Venezuela’s Central Bank, the Boliviarian National Armed Forces, public media, public officials, and journalists.
After exposing facts about the terrorist organization White Helmets as well as war propaganda in the West, the Russian Embassy in Syria disappeared – never knew tweeting facts that threatened the Western narrative goes against Twitter’s guidelines, but in today’s Orwellian society, such is becoming the norm – as is the ridicule of those who do have it in them to speak the truth.
Who’s Doing This?
So, who’s behind this controlling and suppressing of information, which of course is labeled by our tech giants like Google, Twitter, Facebook, and others as disinformation, fake news, and of course the go-to here in 2020, Russian propaganda. Trigger words for the absent-minded sheep to fall in line and swallow that blue pill they hand us on a silver platter. Because any time our mainstream authoritarian overlords use terms like ‘fake news,’ their minions simply echo the claim, even if little to no evidence supports the claim.
So, let’s do a little bit of an expose as to who’s behind the control of information.
It’s a part-time officer in the British Army’s psychological warfare unit, Gordon MacMillan, who joined the UK’s office of the company back in 2013. He also served with the UK’s 77th brigade to develop “non-lethal” ways of waging war.
Seems like MacMillan checks all the boxes
So, who is this 77th brigade?
They conduct information warfare, using platforms like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Instagram.
The 77th brigade gives the British military “the capability to compete in the war of narratives at the tactical level” and to shape perceptions of conflict.”
What have the soldiers involved in the brigade revealed?
That their operations intend to change the behavior of target audiences.
As you can see, Mr. MacMillan and the 77th brigade seem to have one goal in mind – disseminating propaganda.
So, who else is behind this mess?
Let’s focus our attention on Amazon owner, Jeff Bezos, who was paid $600-million to develop software and media for the CIA in 2014, Of course, Bezos also owns the Washington Post, which many critics have believed it is leading to the end of the independence for the news agency.
What about Google?
Well, it just so happens some of the biggest fans of former CEO Eric Schmidt just happen to be Henry Kissinger, Hillary Clinton, and Tony Blair, heavily endorsing Schmidt’s book on technological imperialism, which he wrote with fellow executive Jared Cohen.
One passage in the book, entitled ‘The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations, and Business, they wrote, “What Lockheed Martin was to the twentieth century…technology and cyber-security companies [like Google] will be to the twenty-first.”
For anyone who knows what Lockheed engages and has engaged in, the red flags should be popping up all over the brain.
Let’s move on to Facebook, which is working with the neoconservative think tank, the Atlantic Council, which they announced in 2018.
Just who’s on the Atlantic Council? Click here. And notice who one of the top contributors are to the Atlantic Council. If you click on the list of contributors, you’ll see large oil companies like Abu Dhabi National, Crescent Petroleum, both of which are based in the UAE. It’s unsurprising to see the UAE’s Embassy to the United States standing alongside Facebook as one of the top contributors to the Council as well. Trans-Oil International, Exxon Mobile, and BP America Incorporated are also there.
Raytheon, Lockheed, Twitter, literally hundreds of multinational corporations, and even US service academies have all contributed to this neoconservative think tank.
As of 2019, who’s on the Atlantic Council’s Board of Directors?
You might recognize a few of them.
Henry Kissinger, H.R. McMaster, David H. Petraeus, Matthew Bernstein, and other familiar names. Honorary Directors include Leon Panetta, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice. Lifetime directors include William H. Taft IV, and James Woolsey.
It’s because 39% of Americans get their news from the tech giant. When Facebook began working with (and contributing to) the Atlantic Council, they immediately began removing accounts linked to media in states like Iran, Russia, and Venezuela, telling its sheep the world would not be exposed to competing ideas (does this NOT sound like it came straight out of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four?) and purging dissenters under the guise of fake news. They also love using terms like “disinformation,” “Russian bots,” and “Russian Assets.”
So, who else has Facebook partnered with?
The US and Israeli governments to silence voices in Palestine who want nothing more than to show the world the truth of the Israeli Apartheid that has been going on in Palestine for seventy-three years. In fact, Facebook has complied with 95% of the Israeli government requests to delete pro-Palestinian pages while Google deleted many YouTube and blog accounts that were supposedly connected to Tehran in 2016.
Guys, this stuff has been going on for years, and I’ve been following it for probably the last two years, if that.
Any time someone claims, especially if that someone is the likes of Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twitter, and other tech giants, that a specific outlet is fake news, do your research and don’t fall victim to those looking to censor and demonize outlets that are simply preaching a side of the argument or issue the mainstream media shuns.
For you Christians out there, I’m sure the Romans said the same thing about Jesus Christ, that his claim of being the Son of God and literal blueprint on how to enter the Kingdom of Heaven was fake news and disinformation. If that wasn’t the case, He never would’ve been crucified.
