A day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey conceded that the platform’s decision to ban incumbent US President Donald Trump limited the conversation, divided people and ‘set a dangerous precedent’, a secret audio tape has now revealed that Twitter has no plans to stop its censorship drive only with President Donald Trump, but plans to continue the witchhunt.
Project Veritas, a conservative activist group focussed on exposing corruption, had shared a secret recording wherein Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey could be seen discussing the platform’s long term policy in terms of political censorship. The tape now released by Veritas was reportedly leaked by one employee of Twitter.
Republican Rep. Randy Fine is calling on the state to look into its investments with major tech companies and withdraw that money after President Donald Trump was kicked off several social media platforms following last week’s Capitol attack.
Facebook, Twitter and other companies cited Trump’s month-long crusade to stir up his supporters with false claims the presidential election was stolen. That culminated in Wednesday’s Washington rally — which Trump promoted beforehand as “wild” and turned into an insurrection.
While he stated protests should be peaceful, Trump whipped up the crowd during a speech where he directed supporters to protest at the Capitol. Once there, several clashed with police and stormed the building, resulting in several deaths.
In response, multiple technology companies banned Trump citing “the risk of further incitement of violence.” In a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis, Fine argues Trump and his supporters are being unfairly targeted.
The letter specifically asks the Governor to “order the immediate divestment of any Florida-held equity and debt” in Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Twitter.
Allies and critics of the US president slam Twitter’s move to ban him from its platform, citing freedom of speech.

Citing the danger of inciting further acts of violence, on January 8 Twitter suspended United States President Donald Trump’s account – three days after he called on his supporters on Twitter to march towards the US Capitol building while Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said.
Thousands of rioters violently stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, forcing lawmakers to be rushed to safety or hide under furniture. Five people died.
The move cut Trump off from his nearly 90 million followers on the platform. Facebook had issued a similar move, banning him from its social networking site, at least for the remainder of his time in office, which ends on January 20.
It also set off a wave of reactions from officials and world leaders. As several welcomed the move, many – among them critics of the divisive leader – blasted the action as politically motivated and an infringement on free speech.

Can anybody say with a straight face that America is the land of the free, home of the brave? I remember back in the day people used the expression “it’s a free country” quite often. You don’t hear that anymore. Why?
Because America is slowly becoming a soft tyranny, a high-tech mélange of fascism, corporatocracy and oligarchy working under a fake bi-party system, which in reality is a single party, CCP style, controlled by foreign lobbies and special interests.
Something the world has never seen before in such detail. And everything happens with the consent of the governed, that’s the most flabbergasting thing. People never learn anything from history.
Watching the US going down in flames from a distance is almost surreal for a person who believed for decades that the United States of America is the freest country in the world, with free speech and justice for all.
Not anymore, as the transnational cabal that rules the world through central banking and more recently by controlling the narrative (propaganda basically) via big tech and mainstream media, managed to finally destroy the last bastion of liberty.
Sidney Powell promised and she delivered. Two extensive lawsuits in Michigan and Georgia. Is this the Kraken she was talking about? More than that, The lawsuits entail more than just basic evidences, it is a comprehensive detailing of the voter fraud that took place in these states. General Michael Flynn has received a full pardon from President Trump. Will he be able to hold public position again?
SkyNews Australia speaks with former Trump administration advisor Steve Bannon about Laptop-from-hell gate and Big Tech/corporate news media’s uniform censorship of the story.
Steve Bannon, former chief strategist to President Donald Trump, has revealed Joe Biden’s son emailed a shop owner who had his hard drive in an effort to get it back.
The revelations come as the New York Post this week released an expose detailing links between Joe Biden and his son who was paid at least $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian energy company who allegedly set up a meeting with the then-Vice President.
Information regarding Hunter Biden’s relationship with the Ukranian energy company was sourced from a collection of emails recovered from a laptop that was allegedly dropped off at a repair shop in 2019 and later given to the FBI.
Censorship is as censorship does. Multi-billion dollar video streaming company Netflix will not carry a documentary film, “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” highlighting controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s musical virtuosity.
The film is produced by Minister’s Music Inc., and “features many award winning musical icons and legends from several different genres,” according to the company’s promotional site for the project available here.
Mainstream coverage of the present Netflix ban is devoid of reference to Farrakhan’s musicianship. The promo below indicates a polished production and numerous high-profile black musicians featured alongside Farrakhan throughout the film.
Needless to say Farrakhan is deemed controversial by major media and holds unconventional views on a variety of topics, including his condemnation of homosexuality and the “Satanic Jew,” the latter of which caused Twitter to temporarily censor him. Netflix announced the film would be available in August but has now pulled it, citing “an internal miscommunication.”
Netflix will not stream a documentary about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
The documentary, titled “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” was first reported to be on the list of films coming to the streaming service in August, with Farrakhan tweeting about the documentary’s addition to the service. But Netflix says this will not be the case, blaming an error for the film being included on the list.
“Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not,” said a company spokesperson. “We apologize for any confusion this has caused.”
