George Soros Demands We Retract Ayala Story

Jacob Engels
Central Florida Post

Earlier this month we published an article “Soros Connected Groups Dominate Ayala’s Personal & Professional Life”, which received overwhelmingly positive reviews from our readers and community leaders.

In it, we demonstrated how Soros-linked groups and operatives have maintained a very close proximity to Ms. Ayala, even after her election last August. Ayala famously caught the eye of Mr. Soros, who pumped millions into a PAC that savaged her opponent, sex hound State Attorney Jeff Ashton.

While almost everyone on both sides of the political spectrum has appreciated our reporting and coverage of State Attorney Ayala, apparently one of our new readers was not amused… a Mr. George Soros. Continue reading

Dr. Pieczenik Says Counter Revolution Taking Place Inside White House To Silence Alt-Right

BlacklistedNews

Dr. Steve Pieczenik, the consummate intelligence insider, made a bold claim on the Alex Jones show today, suggesting the National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and Jared Kushner were behind a counter revolution to silence the alt-right. He cited the outing of General Flynn, the demotion of Stephen Bannon, Gorka and others, as evidence that something was happening inside the White House to silence the movement that got Trump elected.

Moreover, Dr. Pie warned the U.S. military was ‘out of control’, waging and fomenting wars in five different countries.

Interestingly, he mentioned how $KBR was in countries that the United States had no interest in for the sole purposes of looting it (I am long KBR). Continue reading

In defence of Alex Jones

The Duran

A disgustingly misconstrued story attempting to defame Alex Jones has been circulating on alt-media, social media and the mainstream media.

Jones, the founder of and lead host of InfoWars, is currently engaged in a child custody battle in a Texas court with his estranged wife.

Jones has been upset because he has not been allowed sufficient time with his young children, a deeply personal issue which has now been splayed out before the wider media circus.

How YouTube’s Shifting Algorithms Hurt Independent Media

Amanda Hess
The New York Times

At the age of 21, David Pakman started a little Massachusetts community radio talk program. While the young broadcaster got his show syndicated on a few public radio stations, it was a YouTube channel he began in 2009, “The David Pakman Show,” that opened up his progressive political commentary to a whole new digital audience. The show has since amassed 353,000 subscribers, and roughly half of its revenue now comes from the ads that play before his videos. He earns enough to produce the show full time and pay a lean staff.

Or, at least, he used to. Last month YouTube announced abrupt, vague changes to its automated processes for placing ads across the platform. Ads on Mr. Pakman’s YouTube channel evaporated, dropping to as little as 6 cents a day, and forcing him to set up a crowdfunding page to help cover $20,000 a month in operating costs.

“This is an existential threat to the show,” Mr. Pakman said. “We need that money.” Continue reading

Soros, Google Funding “Net Neutrality” Groups to Control Internet, Censor Infowars.com

$72 million spent since 2006 to control Internet under guise of “net neutrality”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As FCC Chief Ajit Pai moves toward reversing the Obama administration’s version of “net neutrality” rules, AstroTurf “public interest groups” funded by a combination of Google, George Soros’ Open Society Institution and the Ford Foundation are lobbying hard to keep control of the Internet so as to be able to censor conservative news, including Infowars.com.

In 2015, the Obama FCC voted on party lines to pass regulations that gave the government more control over the Internet, which was sold to the U.S. public under the guise of “net neutrality.” Continue reading

Google Takes Out Major Contract to De-List InfoWars from Its Search Index

Mike Cernovich
Prison Planet

Google has hired contractors to remove or limit Alex Jones’ website Infowars.com from its search engines. According to a search engine evaluator for Google, all contractors have been instrucred to actively rate InfoWars as a low quality and untrusted site.

This email was sent out to all contractors.

The instructions to the contractors provide:

  • InfoWars is not an “outright false” website and is not “among the worst of the worst.”
  • “There are a number of controversial, often debunked claims that the site regularly promotes.”
  • InfoWars articles must be rated “Low to Medium.”

It Turns Out Alex Jones Is Just Pretending

Peter Hasson
The Daily Caller

Infowars’ Alex Jones is just pretending when hosting his show, where he frequently espouses conspiracy theories and recently challenged actor Alec Baldwin to a fistfight.

That’s what his lawyer, Randall Wilhite argued at a recent pretrial hearing, the Austin-American Statesman first reported. Jones is currently battling his ex-wife in court over custody of their children. His case will depend on convincing jurors that Alex Jones the Infowars host is different from Alex Jones the person.

“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said, according to the Statesman. “He is a performance artist.”

Jones’ wife argued that her husband — who once pushed a theory that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a false flag event — actually believes what he says.

“He’s not a stable person,” Kelly Jones said. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped.”

“He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast,” she added.

The Jones’ 14-year-old son and two daughters, ages 9 and 12, have lived with their father since his 2015 divorce, according to the Statesman.

Jones went on a rant last month against Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff after Schiff accused him of colluding with the Russians. “You get in my face with that, I’ll beat your goddamn ass, you son of a bitch. You piece of shit,” Jones said.

Jones later said his comments were “clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art.”

That clip, however, will not be allowed as evidence in court, state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo ruled.

One clip that Naranjo did allow, according to the Statesman, is of Jones showcasing videos his then-12-year-old son had put together with Infowars employees.

“He is undoubtedly cut out for this, and I intend for him to eclipse what I’ve done. He’s a way greater person than I was at 12,” Jones said in the clip, before addressing his son: “I love you so much, and I didn’t mean to get you up here, sweetheart, and tell people how much I love you, but you’re so handsome, and you’re a good little knight who’s going to grow up, I know, to be a great fighter against the enemy.”

Jones apologized last month for his role in promoting the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, which held that Clinton operative John Podesta was leading a child sex trafficking ring out of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. (RELATED: Alex Jones Apologizes For Pizzagate Lunacy)

Google’s news “true or false” fact checking determinations to be made by delusional Left-wing groups with a long history of dishonest bias

JD Heyes
NaturalNews

Media giant Google now thinks it is large enough to decide which news reports are valid and which are not, so it is implementing “fact-checking labels” to tell readers whether news is “true or false,” The Guardian reports.

Here’s how it will work: When a user searches a political subject or phrase, the returns will focus on news and information that has supposedly been vetted and determined to be true or false, as part of Google’s post-election effort to stop the spread of fake news.

“The fact-checking feature, which was first introduced to Google News in the UK and U.S. in October, will now be displayed as an information box in general search results as well as news search results globally,” The Guardian reported.

And just who is Google depending on to ‘fact-check’ news reports? Only some of the most Left-wing organizations known to the media business – organizations that have a demonstrable, chronic anti-liberty, anti-constitutional, anti-conservative bias and who are very often wrong because of their political ideology.

As reported by Breitbart News’ Warner Todd Huston, those “left-of-center gatekeepers” of news honesty include Snopes.com, Politifact, ABC News and The Associated Press. All this really amounts to is the latest effort by media liberals to once again gain control over the daily news narrative – telling Americans what they want them to hear and how they ought to think about and respond to the narrative.

Facebook is jumping on the “fake news” bandwagon too, for that matter, partnering with many of the same organizations as Google. In December, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, a huge supporter of twice-vanquished Hillary Clinton, posted on his account an explanation of why his company is taking its action.

“We’re a new kind of platform for public discourse — and that means we have a new kind of responsibility to enable people to have the most meaningful conversations, and to build a space where people can be informed,” he wrote.

In a word, bull. “A new kind of responsibility” is nothing more than a euphemism for implementing old-fashioned censorship, in this case of the alternative media that played such an important role in revealing bombshell after bombshell during last year’s election cycle, and then serving as a platform for that news to spread.

“This is a disaster for news coverage,” wrote the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro. “It’s an attempt to restore gatekeepers who have a bias as the ultimate arbiters of truth. If these organizations begin questioning articles and penalizing outlets for simple political disagreements rather than outright factual falsities, conservatives will have to go elsewhere for their news.”

And that’s precisely what is about to happen: Certain political viewpoints and reporting will be censored via labeling as “fake news” or “false,” even when they’re not. As for those “fact checkers?” Let’s examine them:

— As noted by The Federalist, when ‘fact-checking’ Republican and Democratic figures, the latter fared much better:

When fact-checked by PolitiFact, Democrats had an average rating of 1.8, which is between “Mostly True” and “Half True.” The average Republican rating was 2.6, which is between “Half-True” and “Mostly False.” We also checked Republicans without President-elect Donald Trump in the mix and found that 0.8 truth gap narrowed to 0.5.

Bias? Of course.

— Then there are the outright fabrications. As reported by TruthWiki, Snopes was founded and, for the longest time, operated by a married couple who had no particular training, education or experience investigating news reporting:

David and Barbara Mikkelson, husband and wife from San Fernando Valley, started their “neutral” blog of shoddy, liberal-bent research over a decade ago, posting time and time again their “final factual words” that aren’t really facts at all. Snopes repeatedly explains away criticisms towards liberal politicians and other leftist public figures while character assassinating conservatives.

ABC News and The Associated Press fare only slightly better, but both carry the same Left-wing bias in their reporting.

The point is, Facebook and Google are not out to rid their feeds of so-called “fake news.” They are out to rid their feeds of reporting and political opinion which does not fit their liberal worldview, and in doing so impugning the reporters and editors of those news organizations, period.

This has nothing to do with “true or false” and everything to do with blatant censorship.

FBI’s Russian-influence probe includes a look at Breitbart, InfoWars news sites

McClatchy Washington Bureau

[graphiq id=”6swQsuFFDkF” title=”James Comey” width=”500″ height=”810″ url=”https://w.graphiq.com/w/6swQsuFFDkF” ]

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.

Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.

The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on conservative internet sites such as Breitbart News and InfoWars, as well as on the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, the sources said. Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Russian operation to influence last year’s elections.

Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook. Continue reading
