The only thing about this one, is it feels a little like he knew he was talking to a hidden camera. Either way…
Andrew Bolt and Patrick Moore go afield at the end though when they speculate as to why facts which oppose the narrative are disallowed in media, social or otherwise, and why “fact checkers” on Facebook like about, well facts. The answer is, as it has been for some time, that with the left, the point is never the point. The revolution is always the point. The left must force the culture leftwards at all costs. So we must say polar bears, (which are very photogenic, unlike Norwegian rats), are declining despite special measures in place to protect people from bear attacks by the swell they are having in population. “Fact Checkers” are there to make sure that the truth, actual facts, cannot be permitted to interfere with the narrative. The left is always on the side which pushes away from Western Civilization, and in some ways, from humanity itself.
No more warm and fuzzy from the Zuck.
Firstly, at this point Im surprised every CEO doesn’t start their weekly meetings with, “Hello staff, colleagues, volunteers, and of course, whoever is watching from Project Veritas”. At this point they really should.
But I see this a little differently than James O’Keefe does.
This isn’t about hypocrisy, This is about Judo-Propaganda. That is when a platform like Facebook or Youtube or Twitter, pretends to be a user’s forum for ideas and free speech, but actually uses the energy of their users as a weapon to achieve a specific agenda or outcome. The people who work against the desired narrative will be suppressed but subtly so that their energy is drained while not actually getting out to very many people at all. If people know, for example on Facebook or Twitter, how little their audience really was, even after the culling of subscribers we see for non-leftists, they would not bother to use it and find some other means to reach people who want to share their views.
So its quite a nasty little trick to play on them. Meanwhile, people who push the consensus narrative, for example pro Covid measures or Global Warming or criticism of Islam is racist etc., will actually be amplified by the platform so its narrators will have more authority than their actual, shall we say, ‘organic’, following would naturally be.
Clearly this mRNA treatment is not a vaccine in any way that we would define it.
It is not made of killed or attenuated live viruses for the purpose of training your immune system against the wild pathogen.
It does not confer immunity or interfere with the transmissibility of the pathogen to the recipient.
It does cause the cells to manufacture a new protein which itself is part of the Wuhan Flu virus. In theory this offers an attenuated immune response to the wild virus so you don’t get quite as sick. But it’s a very new technology and people are quite reasonably trepidatious about having it injected, particularly if they are of child bearing or siring years since we have no idea what this might do to one’s germ line.
So this tends to lend weight to the idea that Facebook is not a sincere censor of the truth as Zuckerberg sees it but it is the Habermas-Marcuse narrative engine we always knew it was.
A reader of Vlad discovered in their Twitter feed, an unusual survey being done by Twitter itself. The questions seemed awfully racist so he tried to screenshot them and discovered that for some reason, his device would not allow him to do so. Put another way, a device he owns would not allow him to screen capture questions he was being asked by big tech. They can know his thoughts, but he cannot save the questions or let anyone else know what Twitter is doing.
Fortunately he had a second phone with which he could take photos of the survey:
Notice the warning he got when he tried to capture the first question on the survey at the bottom. In a way that is more honest than I expect from Big Tech. There are ways they could have made sure you can’t record the survey without you knowing I bet.
The person who sent this material in checked the phone by screen grabbing the Twitter feed though and it worked fine. So its not with Twitter in general or the device. Its strictly this survey that wouldn’t capture.
This feels like it might be related:
First, Alphabet/Google/youtube has seen fit to delete videos of actual sworn testimony at Senate hearings on the effectiveness of ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine as treatments for the Wuhan Flu, AKA Covid 19. This is a move that should frighten anyone still living in the illusion of a world of a free marketplace of ideas.
Apparently, the “doctors” at Google know more about practicing medicine than heroic doctors who have the courage and compassion to actually treat COVID patients and save lives.
— Senator Ron Johnson (@SenRonJohnson) January 28, 2021
We went out and found that footage and it is below now. However we strongly reccomend that people watch the entire hearing. There has been, and continues to be something very wrong when multiple safe and effective and inexpensive treatments, most recently Colchicin, is available to treat the Wuhan Flu and yet governments are going out of their way to make sure we cannot get these treatments. And it is not to maintain a supply. If the US can ramp up production of ventilators the way they did, then turning up the knobs at the factories already making these medications should be very very easy.
Next: Twitter deletes the account of a classical liberal party in Spain, VOX. The only party still trying to allow Spanish culture and law to exist in Spain, and to control their borders etc.
Vox announced this Thursday that will file a complaint against Twitter Spain for censoring the official account of the party for the purpose of “influence” the next Catalan elections scheduled for February 14 after a message about the “Islamization” of Catalonia.
According to the party, the message that has motivated the “censorship” is framed in the campaign ‘Stop Islamization’ which launched this week the formation led by Santiago Abascal to denounce the political parties for having promoted “the dangerous Islamization of Catalonia.”
“They represent approximately 0.2% and are responsible for 93% of the complaints. Most are from the Maghreb. It is Catalonia that is leaving the unanimous indolence and complicity with imported crime. Only Vox remains “, specifically the message that has motivated the social network to have limited” temporarily “some of the functions of the official Vox account.
In a thread on Twitter, the party leader stressed that it is a “extremely serious fact” because the social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg “usurps the functions of democratic states” and has announced that they will file a complaint “against this totalitarian action that seeks, among other things, to influence the next Catalan elections.”
There are lots of examples of this on this site. In fact our own VladTepesBlog channels have been deleted by Youtube a few times. But the tempo is up and the beard is down for Social media’s censorship of anything which is a threat to the new fascism. Fascism of course in the true sense. The merger of a far left collectivist and centralized government, namely communism, with no value for the individual and no place in the institutions for truth, with giant companies like Google, Costco, and the companies that stayed open and bottlenecked the whole population in their stores, somehow to help stop the spread of Covid, which seems to us at least intuitively as wearing masks is, to be less of a threat if people mostly all went to small shops instead of all mixing at the same few giant warehouses.
Thirdly, Apple and Android (Google again) planning to remove the Telegram App both off the store, AND off of your phone!
(Comments are more useful than the video)
SAN FRANCISCO — YouTube has suspended Donald Trump indefinitely from the platform and said it will also prevent the former U.S. president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani from being able to monetize his clips, U.S. media reported.
It comes a week after the social media giant confirmed it would extend a ban on Trump’s channel — which has just under three million subscribers — joining other social media platforms in banning his accounts following the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
The Google-owned firm has faced some criticism over its slow response following the violence in Washington, as well as the proliferation of conspiracy theories on the platform.
If more examples of big tech censorship appear tonight they will be added to this post. But one way or another, they will appear, and they will be posted to this site.
Thank you Sassy for bringing to our attention, the missing video of Dr. Pierre Kory.
In 2009, I had the opportunity to see someone speak who to this day I think is the smartest man I have ever heard.
His name is David Yerushalmi. A constitutional lawyer in the US. A man who has argued cases before the Supreme Court and won, and who has defended some of the people beleaguered by the left even back then and since.
In his talk, he explained how freedom of speech works under US law. To be more accurate, I should say, how it worked in 2009. It still technically works like this, but the law is the least of our worries these days.
David explained that you can say anything, even that you want to kill so and so, providing that there is no “immediacy.”
In other words, if a person says or writes, “Im so mad at so and so that I want to kill them!” or, “I hate so and so this much I hope they get a bullet in the head!” that is perfectly legal right up to the point where the person adds “immediacy”. This means when they say, “I want to kill so-and-so tomorrow at 2:00 PM”, now its a crime. It has gone from protected speech to a threat and a plan to carry out that threat.
This all seems very reasonable. It was a great way to run a nation. Maximal allowance for normal human emoting, but a clear line where the law needs to act to prevent a crime.
The left however, which has been planning the destruction of all reason based societies for over a century now, has taken a page from the Chinese war manual, that of unlimited warfare. Or perhaps the Chinese took it from the Frankfurt School, who took it from Marx.
But however the chain of events happened, the result is that the left, in their unceasing efforts to totally deconstruct Western Civilization and all of its institutions, went outside the usual implements of a free society. They find people with a voice and destroy them by getting them fired, getting their families fired from their own jobs, doxxing, arranging for groups of communist insurgent thugs to attack them or their property, and who seem strangely immune from criticism and the law when they do.
One of the most pernicious tactics is the deliberate reinterpretation of whatever they might say to make them appear to have violated vague sets of selectively enforced rules and many many more similar, but unethical, unfair and often even illegal tactics. One clear example is how when President Trump made a video asking people to peacefully go home and the importance of peace in the democratic transfer of power, the video was removed from all leftist controlled platforms and the narrative that President Trump called for violence was invented and amplified as a justification for his further public destruction.
This website for its entire 13 years of operation is riddled with stories about people who have been deplatformed or otherwise destroyed for
And in the last week, it could be entirely those examples, that and it could have a dozen times more examples than we have posted, just from what we have seen in the comments and on Twitter etc.
At this point, what is legal is of considerably less importance than the actual rules of expression as they are enforced by extralegal measures by the left. Which means when you are speaking of a leftist leader, you must phrase your emotional output very carefully. Of course, if its part of the attempt to assassinate President Trump’s character, memory, legacy, accomplishments etc. you can say whatever you want and be celebrated for it, and all the 1st amendment rights will be aggressively championed for you.
I suppose this is part of what one communist, or was it an Islamic tactician explained, would be how they would use our very freedoms to destroy us. But they left out how the really destructive part was denying those freedoms to their enemies. Namely us.
So I ask all commenters to this site to consider the reality of freedom of speech today when using this site. Say what you want of course. but don’t make it easy for our enemies, and they are large and powerful, to destroy this site, and go after its people.
We are working on a project to allow real freedom of speech as written in the US 1st amendment right now. And it will have all the freedoms AND legal limits that are the parameters of the traditional American approach to freedom. But till that is up and integrated, please curb your most unfiltered thoughts in the face of what ruefully we have to admit is the new reality, the new landscape of a post legal America and West.
Thank you all for your efforts. This community, which is all of our accomplishment, is still the greatest thing I have ever been involved with.

Although this is from October of 2015, it does offer an explanation for why Zuckerberg’s moves on his social media platform is so clearly and consistently communist friendly
China’s President Xi Jinping ‘turns down Mark Zuckerberg’s request to name his unborn child’ at White House dinner
Mark Zuckerberg may have impressed China’s President Xi Jinping by speaking to him in Mandarin, but it didn’t stop the leader from turning down a personal request from the Facebook founder.
According to Page Six, at a prestigious White House dinner hosted by President Obama and the First Lady, Zuckerberg approached President Xi about the subject of his unborn child.
At the dinner, which included Apple’s Tim Cook and Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Zuckerberg reportedly asked President Xi whether he would be able to give an honorary Chinese name to the daughter he and wife Priscilla Chan are expecting.
Page Six claims President Xi said the task would be “too much responsibility” and declined, though a spokesperson for Zuckerberg told the newspaper this was not correct.
Thank you M.

Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.
We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies.
This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.
( 1 hour ago )
We are the closest thing to competition Facebook or Twitter has seen in many years. I believe Amazon, Google, Apple worked together to try and ensure they don’t have competition.
They will NOT win! We are the worlds last hope for free speech and free information.
What they are doing is unprecedented, unfounded and absolutely disgusting. Shameful.
This is a battle against all of us. Liberals, conservatives, atheists, Christians, black, white, etc. They want to keep their monopoly over speech. They want us fighting. They don’t want us working together. They don’t want us working with each other, they want us hating one another.
Parley – brings two people with conflicting ideas together. Our mission is free speech, democracy and us the people having the power. The elite don’t want us to be free, they want hate division and power!
For us to win this fight we need everyone back on Parler Tuesday. By Monday at noon we will be fully operational again.
( 41 min ago )
How to Help
1) Tuesday come back to Parler . Com OR use the side loaded version of android OR use your already installed versions of Parler. (or maybe we will be back on the stores )
2) Check your email and spam for messages from Parler
3) Call, write and email your congressman and senators and expose this anti-competitive behavior. On both sides of the isle.
4) Cancel your Amazon subscriptions and dump Apple. Google/android is not much better, but it will have to do until the Linux phones are finally ready.
5) DO NOT leave angry messages however DO complain politely to Amazon, Google, Apple via mail and via phone.
We should be operational with less then 12 hours of downtime after Amazon abruptly pulls our access. This is unprecedented.
The one thing I can’t figure out though, is why to people insist on calling Dorsey and Zuckerberg, “liberals”? One could make the case that the founding principle of liberalism is:
“I disagree with what you say. But I will defend with my life your right to say it.”
Compare that with what these men and others like him in the Democrat, Republican, Liberal parties are doing, especially since January 7ths false flag event at the Capitol.

Patrick Moore is a cofounder of Greenpeace and has been a major thorn in the side for groups using climate as a tool to effect communist led policy changes. James Woods is a very popular non-leftist actor. Of course the left has been expunging all non-leftists from Hollywood and the industry in general for many many years now. But this is a new level.
Social media companies banning President Donald Trump is something the Chinese Communist Party would do, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Friday.
“Silencing people, not to mention the President of the U.S., is what happens in China not our country,” Haley wrote in a tweet.
Twitter announced earlier in the day that it was permanently removing Trump’s account, which had been active since before he took office in 2016. The company claimed his recent tweets were inciting violence.
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.https://t.co/CBpE1I6j8Y

Mozilla, developer of the Firefox internet browser, has argued that more must be done to keep Donald Trump and other “bad actors” out of cyberspace, prompting many to vow to never use the group’s services again.
In a blog post titled ‘We need more than deplatforming’, the open-source software community said that Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Trump from its platform didn’t go far enough in weeding out “hate” on the internet. While blaming Trump for the “siege and take-over” of the US Capitol on January 6, the non-profit tech group argued that “white supremacy is about more than any one personality.”

There is more and a lot more about Facebook illegally cancelling GOP fund raisers etc. before Nov. 2 They will be added as they are found. Although some have been posted to this site before. But it would be nice to have more of them in this one post for future reference.
In one twenty-four period Twitter reduced my followers by 63,000.
The purge is on and unabashed in its ruthlessness.
Silencing voices is a sign of tyranny. The only sure truth about Twitter is that it is most decidedly not an unbiased “forum” for free speech.
