Unless a person is completely detached or not on the internet, we're all aware of the well-coordinated attack on free speech in this country. From institutions of lower learning, aka colleges and universities, to "mainstream" newspaper rags like the NYT and Washington Post and, of course, the giant monopolies who control the internet.
Remember Al Gore, former vice president and King of Hucksters? The cardboard idiot who has made tons of millions peddling his BS about global warming and climate change who said how excited he was about the internet? It was to become the "super-information highway."

Those who have been working to destroy this constitutional republic for over a century figured every American would have a computer within 10 years and those scoundrels would use the internet as a giant propaganda machine.
It backfired big time for the shadow government. This super-information highway became we the people's ballistic missile in getting the truth to the American people. It wasn't easy back then, before we all bought home computers. When I began my truth journey 29 years ago, it was to the big, beautiful public library in Denver, newsletters, the telephone (no cell phones back then) and fax machines.
The internet changed everything, and now, because the American people are waking up in droves to how they've been played and how the internet has played a huge role in attempting to brainwash them (forcing "social justice" lunacy and all the rest of the Soviet-style propaganda), the globalists behind all this scheming are desperate. It's time to shut down all but the most hateful speech from useful fools who call themselves social justice warriors, liberals and progressive liberals.
They, like Black Lives Matter, antifa and all the other violent, freedom-hating anarchists are cherished for their courage while those who go against the well-orchestrated plans to destroy our sovereign nation are to be obliterated, but not by shutting down the internet altogether.
Remember this very important point: E-commerce is a trillion dollar a year enterprise in sales, trading and other money-making entities. The monopolies who are controlling the engines for "social media" depend heavily on selling your personal information and data. They don't want to cut off the head, just amputate the unwanted parts.

This push toward censorship has been building. Chipping away at certain individuals or websites the evildoers don't want Americans to read, including free video viewing online, has been going on for years. A couple of weeks ago, the Kiss of Death was directed at Alex Jones.
It's not just Alex Jones the censorship Nazis have gone after. A couple I've never heard of must have also been shut down:
They aren't the only ones. Too many websites to count over the past few months have been experiencing attacks.

As a million others have said, whether you like or dislike Alex Jones isn't the issue. The First Amendment was made No. 1 in the Bill of Rights to protect our God-given right to free speech. Back then it was really all about free political speech. Even ugly, hurtful speech. Everyone has the right to change the TV or radio channel. They also have the right not to read or visit websites they don't like.
Last week I heard a "conservative" radio host say Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc., are private companies and have the right to control content even though he was really upset about what's going on. Yes, they are private companies, but they are also gigantic monopolies – dangerous ones. I've read dozens of commentaries on this, but I believe this one hits the nail on the head:
Writes WND Editor Joseph Farah, "Maybe you say, 'Well, Farah, don't these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?' The answer may be surprising: No, they don't.
"None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the 'press.' They are more akin to 'utilities' – like the telephone companies of old or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology.

"They don't have to like Alex Jones. They don't have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to have privileged positions making money distributing all manner of content, data, information, they dare not think of themselves as 'gatekeepers' against offensive political speech. And they better not designate the partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is what they have done – all of them!
"I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I'm going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America's precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It's not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It's their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel."
Joseph also wrote a follow-up column I hope you will take a few minutes to read; he's not as long-winded as I am! If people don't think the "Digital Cartel," if not stopped, will have a profound effect on the November 2018 and 2020 elections, they "don't get it." [President Trump: Google must be stopped!]
Now, I'm the last person to encourage Congress to stick their nose where it doesn't belong. A long time ago, Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court decided that in certain cases, monopolies had to be broken up. Americans who are uninformed about this "old" history, do take the time to understand it – just like I have done:
The Sherman Antitrust Act – this also covers the Clayton Antitrust Act.
Apparently, there is an antitrust lawsuit against Facebook, Google and Apple on the Wall Street Journal's website. Try as I did, all other links go to that article, but to read it you have to sign up for the WSJ online – and I won't do it.
Anyone who knows me knows I am the biggest tech dinosaur out there. I have a cellphone I keep in my SUV for emergencies or to call my mother when I'm on the road to her assisted living facility in Northern California. Otherwise, I never use it – maybe five to six hours a year.
I absolutely hate people who gab on their cellphone in line at the post office, at the doctor, grocery store or driving. Yes, cellphones are a great invention and a real, genuine necessity for some types of businesses. Please do your talking in your vehicle or outside. But, all these other gadgets are nothing but a distraction. Sorry, just my opinion. Who the hell has time all day to spend sending photos or looking at the latest from the Kardashians?
Never taken a selfie. Don't do Facebook. I want nothing to do with Facebook, and I wouldn't put a penny in Mark Zuckerberg's pocket. Never send a tweet (guess that's Twitter). Don't do Instagram or any of the other popular whatevers. Don't know what Spotify is and don't care. To my knowledge I've never purchased anything from Apple. I quit directly using Google years ago; I use Startpage.com, but Google is still the engine. Startpage filters them out.
The good news is more and more people are simply turning off Facebook – especially millennials. I know people loved the idea at first to "share" their most personal information, to see how many "friends" they could list, what they cook for dinner, photos of the grandkids and so forth. Then it grew to what it is today. Now, these conglomerate monopolies are simply evil and must be taken down.
Alex Jones has been shut down by just about all the heavies, including ones I've never heard of, but he's fighting back (a grass-roots guerrilla campaign others might want to implement) and asking to speak to Congress. Movie stars are given time in front of congressional subcommittees, so why not Jones or other conservatives who have been shut down by tech giants like YouTube? Will they someday remove my speech given to a group in California about vote fraud? Will Newswithviews get black listed or shut down over a single column that contains a link some globalist giant doesn't want anyone to read?
This two and a half minute video is exactly what the Digital Cartel wants to keep you from seeing. Watch it -- before YouTube takes it down. You won't be sorry.
It would appear the attack on Jones, just like the one on Sean Hannity that didn't work, appears to be backfiring. See "Alex Jones Claims 5.6 Million New Infowars Subscribers Since Big Tech Blacklisting."
So, what can be done to stop this attack on our God-given right to free speech? Well, I don't know the name of the antitrust lawsuit against Facebook, Google and Apple (although I'm sure it will be in the news in the future), but we'll see what happens with that case.
Turn off Facebook. Do you know how many other alternative sites there are out there?
Nothing there that fits for you or your business? How about this? America has countless tech geniuses out there who could create a "new" Facebook without getting sued by Facebook. A new social media site that doesn't sell your information, doesn't partner with the U.S. government – especially the CIA or NSA.
Mark Zuckerberg and a couple of buddies launched Facebook in 2004 from a garage. I say better can be done today with all the talent out there.
Here's a name for you, and I won't even copyright it: Free Speech Social Network or FSSN. Be just like Facebook only better. It can be done, and I pray it will be done. QUIT FEEDING YOUR ENEMY. Sure, employees of Facebook would lose their jobs as their revenues tank, but as other competitors arise, those employees will go to work for them. We have to fight for our free speech rights.
How will people find out about it? Hey – it's the internet and it's called networking! Especially through email. We the people will get it out there. Once you transfer your Facebook page to the new Free Speech Social Network or whatever you want to call it, you notify family and friends. Businesses who deal with the general public, put up a notice in bold letters at the top: "We have moved to FSSN and invite you to go to our new page. Click here." It will spread. Build it and they will come.
Maybe more than one will spring up, but the important thing is to crush those who want to crush the First Amendment and control everything we see or read. I say go to hell.
How about the despicable YouTube and their censoring? Well, competition is already underway:
Read the article to get all the details and watch this video also dealing with this new forum for freedom: "Health Ranger launching YouTube alternative VIDEO website."
As a matter of fact, I'm getting ready to contact Mike Adams soon about having my own account on his new independent video site.
Google is an evil giant that needs to be taken down, and I hope it can be done through antitrust action – but we don't need to wait around for that process. Amazon has become an unacceptable monopoly that also needs to be broken up. I have no idea how it would get done, but thankfully, there are people far more intelligent than I am who can figure it out. Just like Standard Oil and Bell/ATT.
This well-coordinated attack on constitutionally minded individuals, truth tellers and even wacko's out there can be the beginning of a whole new set of options for Americans instead of just one Facebook, one Twitter, one Google, one of whatever "social media" content producers.
And, speaking of email. Tens and tens of millions of Americans use "free" email accounts online. Not me. Once again, it's all about privacy, data harvesting and selling your most personal information to third parties. You get what you pay for, and sometimes "free" isn't such a good idea.
Might I recommend the company I use? The best email company out there; a truly secure service: My Mail. Go check it out. For a few dollars a month you can protect your emails from anyone snooping.
Come on, America. Let's put all that talent out there to work and change the face of "social media" for the better. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Since January, WND has been documenting how the far-left "Internet Cartel" – primarily Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Amazon – has been waging an unrelenting war against free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion. One key way to effectively fight back against what is increasingly being seen as a blatant attempt to shut down conservative, Christian, pro-Constitution news and opinion voices is to help them financially.
