This blog has agreed for months with the conclusions of writer/political analyst Conrad Black that this election is a fight between media and Trump, aka the American way of life.
Media doesn’t just apply to newspapers and TV anymore; it also includes Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Media is also synonymous with Democrats, which are also Progressives, Liberals, Marxists and Socialists.
You need no more confirmation of this than yesterday’s bombshell report about Hunter Biden, his dad and bribes that dad has worked out for sonny.
It’s a very ugly tale, but not if Americans don’t know about it. Enter Twitter and Facebook who immediately stopped any mention of it on their platforms.
Why? All of Big Tech has been in cahoots with Deep State and Democrats. They have an agreement. They can go unfettered in their pursuit of money and power in exchange for helping the Left at every opportunity.
Remember the long faces at Google when Hillary lost?
They can’t allow that to happen again, so they stopped anyone who posted on Facebook and Twitter from sharing the information. The New York Post, which broke the story along with Kayleigh McEnany, White House Press Secretary, were blocked!
The New York Post responded, “So much for Facebook’s claims to be a neutral platform: One of its top execs just put the social media giant firmly in the pro-Biden camp. And Twitter soon followed suit.
“Andy Stone, Facebook’s policy communications manager, boasted about burying The Post’s story on proof that Hunter Biden merchandized access to his dad.
“Stone’s tweet Wednesday morning: ‘While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.’
“Within hours, Twitter was preventing users from tweeting out the story — with a high-tech trick that let you seem to post it, only to send your tweet into some holding-tank limbo. Its excuse was the supposed “lack of authoritative reporting on the origins of the materials included in the article,” which might — might! — violate its “Hacked Materials Policy.” That The Post made it very clear how the information ended up in the newspaper’s possession didn’t matter.
“Though he doesn’t specify what ‘this story’ means, it can only be our scoop on Hunter — emails that show he introduced an executive of Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas firm on whose board he sat, to his dad while Joe was vice president.
“Biden Sr. has insisted he had ‘never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,’ a statement at odds with the massive trove of data recovered from a laptop at a Delaware repair shop.
“No one is disputing the veracity of The Post’s story — not even Hunter Biden. His lawyer George R. Mesires wouldn’t deign to comment on the reporting, simply attacking the messenger. The Biden campaign did the same, dismissing it all as ‘discredited,’ while saying carefully that no such meeting showed up on Joe Biden’s official schedule on those dates. (Well, if it wasn’t ‘official,’ guess it didn’t happen.)
“As for Twitter’s fear of hacking violations: Our story explains where the info came from, and a Senate committee now confirms it also received the files from the same source.
“Yet Facebook and Twitter are deliberately trying to keep its users from reading and deciding for themselves what it means.
“This when neither did a thing to restrict access to the recent New York Times story on President Trump’s tax returns. And the Times didn’t say a word about how it obtained that confidential personal data — is there no possible hacking there, Twitter?
“An executive of one of the most powerful media platforms in the country, who brags about his years working as a partisan Democratic operative, publicly boasting of his attempt to keep Americans from learning something embarrassing about the Democratic presidential candidate.
“And then a major competitor rushes to completely suppress the same story.
“Facebook and Twitter are not media platforms. They’re propaganda machines.”
Propaganda machines that launch Big Tech into a major power. They fear that iff they lose the 2020 election, the social media platforms will be regulated and dismantled.
They are the same as the Deep State and entwine themselves in government like kudzu. Former FBI chief legal counsel James Baker, for example, who was deep into Spygate, now works as lead counsel for Facebook.
I was happy when President Trump jumped right in to discuss Hunter Biden and the Biden family corruption at his Iowa rally last night. He knows that he is the only way we can find out about these scandals. The media won’t touch it.
Either we strangle them or they strangle us.
