YESTERDAY, none too coincidentally, this investigative journalist, in tandem with her co-author, Joe Newby, handed in a completed manuscript to their publisher. As is said, timing is everything.
MORE specifically, per a recent announcement at this site, it was noted that “Banned: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad” is slated for release this Fall. Its basis links the (social media) omerta descending upon America (and the west at large), in juxtaposition to the protections afforded to militant Islamic jihadists. The above segues into the purported urgency to ban “hate” speech. Liars. Reprobates.
IN fact, the opposite is the case. In a nutshell, those who require reining in – for the sake of western civilization – aren’t being banned, will never be banned, nor will they be silenced. Effectively, by hiding behind many “isms”, leftists and their Islamic overlords plan to bring free speech to a grinding halt – but not to those who are inciting to militant Islamic jihad! In reality, Blasphemy Laws are taking shape in America (and throughout the west), and few are the wiser. Readers, it is past time to catch up to speed.
IN any case, it is an open “secret” that Google, Facebook, along with other internet behemoths have revolving door access at HUSSEIN Obama’s White House. To what end?
A project examining White House visitor logs shows the Obama administration has extended an open door to Google.
Johanna Shelton, Google’s director of public policy — in effect, the company’s top lobbyist — has visited White House officials 128 times since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.
To put that in perspective, senior lobbyists for other companies in the telecommunications and cable industry — including Comcast, Facebook, Amazon, Oracle and Verizon — have visited the White House a combined 124 times in the same span. (That data goes through October 2015.)
The Google Transparency Project, the work of Campaign for Accountability, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to expose corporate influence on government, identified policy pushers for the 50 biggest lobbying spenders and counted how many times they appeared in the White House visitor logs.
Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google, spent $16.6 million on lobbying in 2015. That was the twelfth most of any company, and the most by a technology firm, just above AT&T’s $16.4 million and Comcast’s $15.7 million.
Anne Weismann, executive director of the Campaign for Accountability, told Watchdog.org those logs don’t reveal the discussion of the meetings, just who attended them.
“You don’t know what the meetings are about, but the fact that someone has that level of access at the White House is revealing,” she said. “It certainly suggests a level of influence.”
AND while their lobbying efforts are mainly aimed at securing the “best deals” possible for their financial bottom lines, the fact remains that a quid pro quo is always in place. In other words, Obama Inc. is Allah-bent on silencing all criticism of Islam, and media heavy-weights are just the (cooperative) bought and paid for tickets. Yes, the imposition of Blasphemy Laws and its attendant knock-on effects.
NOW, who recalls the groundwork laid by his first AG, the illegally bent Eric Holder? If not, take a peek. Fast forward to Loretta Lynch, alas, it is more of the same, and on steroids. Not only that, immediately after Americans were slaughtered by Allah’s Muslim Terrorists in San Bernardino, what was her response, as the chief law enforcement officer of the nation?
Rather than denouncing acts of terrorism, just one day after recent tragic events in San Bernardino, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a group assembled for the Muslim Advocates dinner that the Justice Department is prepared to take “aggressive action” against people employing anti-Muslim rhetoric that “edges towards violence.”
In effect, she’s saying she would use prosecution as a weapon to protect Muslims from others employing their First Amendment rights.
Seemingly, her greatest fear at the time was not another Paris, or San Bernardino, but “anti-Muslim rhetoric,” instead.
Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, Lynch said since the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, she is increasingly concerned with the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”
The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my greatest fear as a prosecutor, as someone who is sworn to the protection of all of the American people, which is that the rhetoric will be accompanied by acts of violence. My message to not just the Muslim community but to the entire American community is: we cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.
Lynch made it clear that she shares those concerns, but vowed to use the DOJ to protect Muslims from discrimination and violence. Noting the rise in violence against Muslims and mosques in the wake of the Paris attacks, Lynch added that, “When we talk about the First amendment we [must] make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted.”
As for San Bernardino, yesterday at a press conference, Lynch said it presented a “wonderful opportunity” for change.
Loretta Lynch, at a press conference yesterday, termed the San Bernardino shootings a “wonderful opportunity” to change the nature of police work: “We’re at the point where these issues have come together really like never before in law enforcement thought and in our nation’s history and it gives us a wonderful opportunity and a wonderful moment to really make significant change.”
MIND you, it was not for nothing that her anti-American remarks were made at a dinner held by the Muslim Advocates. Indeed, the aforementioned upcoming book – referenced at the onset – “Banned: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad”, will tell more of the tale. Just wait to read the bullet-proof evidence.
IN any case, the fact that Lynch made her comments at a mobbed up front group for the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia, it goes without saying that it is more than coincidental that Obama Inc. is working hand-in-glove with Facebook, Google and the like to bring free speech to a screeching halt.
IN this regard, fast forward from her pro-Islam comments at the Muslim Advocates (Dec. 2015), and head to yesterday’s anti-First Amendment pronouncement.
The European Union has signed a deal with four of the world’s biggest tech firms which will see “hate speech” deleted from social media in just 24 hours.
Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google have all committed to new rules designed to “ensure that online platforms do not offer opportunities for illegal online hate speech to spread virally”.
All four firms have committed to quickly analyse and remove content involving “public incitement to violence or hatred directed against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin”.
Vĕra Jourová, EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, said, “The recent terror attacks have reminded us of the urgent need to address illegal online hate speech.

“Social media is unfortunately one of the tools that terrorist groups use to radicalise young people and racists use to spread violence and hatred.
“This agreement is an important step forward to ensure that the internet remains a place of free and democratic expression, where European values and laws are respected.”
Eurocrats have insisted the laws are not about stifling freedom of expression, but making sure social media isn’t used to spread extremist messages of hate.
But not everyone is buying this explanation.
Keith Porteus Wood, executive director of the National Secular Society, issued a statement condemning the hate speech laws .
He wrote: “The public incitement to violence or hatred directed against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin will create a chilling effect on freedom of expression and will be misused to muzzle it”
Right-wingers have spent years claiming tech firms have a left-wing bias which shuts out their views.
Social media lit up with anger after the “code of conduct” was unveiled.
On Twitter, one person claimed Brussels was intent on “banning speech we don’t like by calling it hate speech”.
Another tweeter said he’d “rather be living in North Korea than the EU right now”.
INDEED, since when do American companies adhere to the dictates of others, regardless of this and that dictate? Well, since HUSSEIN Obama shredded the Constitution, that’s when!
AND if there are freedom-loving Americans who remain “on the fence” as to how bad the situation is, well, look no further than to what happened to a hapless citizen who “dared” to call his Muslim neighbor a terrorist! In other words, there is no such thing as stating an “offensive” word anymore – not in “Obama’s Amerika”! Yes, the thought police are no longer satisfied with skulking in the shadows via this and that messaging. Ominously, they await to arrest you, if you “dare” to step over the PC line created by Islamists and their enablers.
AGAIN, according to anti-freedom Lynch and her gang…..
“When we talk about the First Amendment we [must] make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted… My message not just to the Muslim community but to all Americans is ‘We cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on’” Loretta Lynch
That’s right folks, Obama’s Attorney General has promised to prosecute Americans who engage in “hate speech” against Islam.
Take the case of Jose Ortiz who was arrested last week, after he called his Muslim neighbor a “terrorist.”
The Muslim called police because Ortiz called him a terrorist… Give me a break.
Ludlow Police Sgt. David Belanger told 22News that Jose Ortiz was arrested last Tuesday. Belanger said that Ortiz’s neighbor, a man of Turkish origin, was leaving his house with his two young children, when Ortiz began calling him a “terrorist” and other names. He said that this has been an ongoing problem between Ortiz and the victim.
DEAR readers, are you sensing a pattern yet? Incontestably, how many free thinkers are going to be rounded up to satisfy what has become Orwell’s (western) universe?
