South Dakota took a balanced approach to fighting #COVID19. Many in the media disagree with our respect for freedom. They'll continue to attack us for the path that we've taken, but South Dakota is proof that freedom works, even in the face of a global pandemic. pic.twitter.com/1vKU3R6Rmk

At the end he missed one important target in his list of those who Globalists hate.
They hate above all, the individual.

This is a worthwhile thread. And any reader of Vlad’s for over a few months will recognize many of these events, which helps put us at ease about the veracity of his other observations.
I don’t know how to post an entire thread here, but click through to this one and you should be able to see all, 18 posts in this thread.
1. Something needs to be done about Google. Its search engine has 92% market share. Google is aware of its massive power & seeks to exploit it to the max. It has become an enemy to freedom.

If power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, we need a third order of magnitude statement to describe what Google has become.
This article written years ago by an authority on the subject, details how it can be determined that Google does indeed slant its search results in contradiction to its own stated rules of operation.
Exactly. Stop and contemplate the enormity. It is a direct repudiation of the principle of individualism that is the heart of what used to be the American Creed. Treating people fairly as individuals is no longer even the ideal. https://t.co/2RIZg8Jr30

Indeed. Contemplate the enormity. It is Harrison Bergeron being demanded and nothing less. The Dystopian future novels set is nearly complete.
I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home. The reason for this effort was clear: The paper’s failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election meant that it didn’t have a firm grasp of the country it covers. Dean Baquet and others have admitted as much on various occasions. The priority in Opinion was to help redress that critical shortcoming.
I was honored to be part of that effort, led by James Bennet. I am proud of my work as a writer and as an editor. Among those I helped bring to our pages: the Venezuelan dissident Wuilly Arteaga; the Iranian chess champion Dorsa Derakhshani; and the Hong Kong Christian democrat Derek Lam. Also: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Masih Alinejad, Zaina Arafat, Elna Baker, Rachael Denhollander, Matti Friedman, Nick Gillespie, Heather Heying, Randall Kennedy, Julius Krein, Monica Lewinsky, Glenn Loury, Jesse Singal, Ali Soufan, Chloe Valdary, Thomas Chatterton Williams, Wesley Yang, and many others.
But the lessons that ought to have followed the election—lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society—have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.
We suggest downloading and saving the page as it likely won’t be online long.
Adding tweets as we find them:
The news is dead. Journalism is gone and people have no idea what is true.
This is an important thread on what is going on.
The death of the news is one of the biggest stories in the world right now.
It’s related to a lot of other problems because people are misinformed. https://t.co/l3A4T0Aiv5

“The real story is the loss of the news altogether, and the news cannot report on it”
Bari Weiss has now resigned from the @nytimes. And that is not even “The Story”. I‘ve just spoken to Bari & learned that I‘m finally free to tweet.
Her letter hints at the real News: the *loss* of the News is now *the* News, and the News cannot cover it.https://t.co/JBXNIgI62L

This is the supercut video President Trump just played during the coronavirus briefing. It includes clips of MSNBC and CNN pundits downplaying coronavirus, @maggieNYT defending his China travel ban, and Govs. Cuomo and Newsom praising his administration's response. pic.twitter.com/W6O1oEQuso

This is fun. Watch the faces of the FOX panelists after the whistleblower is named. It would make an excellent advert for laxatives.

This expose of Google’s full transformation from useful search tool into giant machine of deception for specific and essentially Orwellian purposes brought to you by Project Veritas via Sputnik:
The purported internal memo lists pro-immigration chants among examples of what to shout at protests. Last year, when Google employees were reported to have discussed tweaking search functions to help protest against Trump’s travel ban, the company said it did not favour any political agenda.
Project Veritas, a conservative transparency group, has obtained what it calls an internal document circulated among Google employees, titled ‘Beginner’s Guide to Protesting’.
As it appears from the title, the company, which claims it is devoid of political bias, wants its staffers to know what to do when they come out in the street for a protest.
The purpose of the document is “to assemble best practices and ensure that everyone feels comfortable and pumped about [email protected] marches/protests”.
No further details are given about the mysterious ‘[email protected]’, which could be an internal group coordinating protesters or merely a service providing information about upcoming events.
(Please click through and read it all, Its good to the last letter.)
Several people have sent this in today, and although it is in the first Links post of the day, as I watch through it more carefully, it deserves its own post. To say the very least. These people need to be in jail for fraud and a dozen other charges who’s names need more thought.
