Big Tech Censorship

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 17, 2021 by andelino

Chinese state-run media, known for its censorship of “dissenting” viewpoints, pointed to Big Tech’s “banning” of President Donald Trump as evidence that there is no country with truly “free speech.”

Chinese state-run media condemned Twitter and Facebook’s censorship of President Donald Trump suggesting that the U.S., which is generally thought to represent “democracy”, isn’t democratic.

“The banning of the US president’s social media account for ‘risks of further incitement of violence’ shows that freedom of speech does indeed have boundaries in every society,” Chinese state-run Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin wrote.

A January 9th editorial published in the state-run Global Times said the systematic Big Tech “crackdown” proves that there are limits to free speech in “every society.”

“The banning of the US president’s social media account for risks of further incitement of violence shows that freedom of speech does indeed have boundaries in every society, and humans are not capable of regulating freedom of speech in its full sense. This is a pity, but it’s also a reality,” Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin wrote.

Xijin added that the “social media bans” of Trump are the result of a broader “degeneration” of the U.S. political system.

Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Reddit and other platforms suspended or banned the president in the aftermath of the January 6th “Save America” rally where Trump spoke before “Antifa” rally attendees stormed the Capitol building, Axios reported. On January 8th, Twitter was the first to permanently suspend Trump from using his account, citing potential “incitement of violence.”

Tens of thousands of conservative accounts were purged from Twitter in the aftermath of the riot.

While state media used the purge as evidence that “free speech” doesn’t exist in the U.S., Chinese social media websites, usually quick to ban posts that criticize the Chinese Communist Party, allowed users to openly criticize American censorship. Chinese users were given free reign to “rant” about American Big Tech companies.

“Legally he’s still the president,” one viral post on the popular Chinese social media platform Weibo said. “This is a coup.”

“A country as big as the United States can’t tolerate Trump’s mouth,” another popular post said. “U.S. democracy has died.”

Another post drew a parallel between the U.S. and “Saddam’s Iraq and Qaddafi Libya.” Political cartoonist Kuang Biao, whose drawings critical of the Chinese Communist Party have been regularly censored, was not censored when he posted a picture of Trump’s mouth sewn up.

In addition, a WeChat post written by well-known law professor He Weifang supporting “censorship” of Trump was “removed” from the platform. A link to the post now leads to a warning message saying the post had “violated rules.”

“When Twitter banned Trump, it was a private platform refusing to serve the president,” a Weibo user wrote. “When Weibo bans you, it’s simply executing government guidelines to censor an individual’s speech.”

In 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping issued new rules ordering news outlets to serve the Chinese Communist Party, removing their independence, according to an article in a state-run news outlet praising the decision.

Businessman Ren Zhiqiang was “silenced” on social media for criticizing Jinping’s orders. In September, Zhiqiang was “sentenced” to 18 years in prison after he criticized China’s “coronavirus” response.

Fake Biden Coronation

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 14, 2020 by andelino

After days of deliberating over which states to call and when, every major news network in America was in perfect unison on Saturday, November 7, at 11:30 a.m. when they decided Joe Biden was the 46th president of the United States.

We have come to expect this from mainstream news commentators. They treated the Trump–Russia collusion narrative—a complete fabrication—like credible news. They treated President Donald Trump’s impeachment as if it weren’t a sham. They amplified the officials who politicized the covid-19 pandemic for the purposes of forcing the nation to shut down and harm the president. Now they are attempting to collude with Democrats to rig an election.

For four years, we have seen an avalanche of fake news, fake scandals and phony investigations based on specious and forged evidence. And in the last few months, we’ve seen all the fake polls designed to create an illusion—a fake narrative that led into a fraudulent and phony election full of fake votes that produced, according to the fake news, a fake president of the United States.

The propaganda wing of the Democratic Party has spoken, and they say Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. It doesn’t matter how many voting irregularities there were.

they ignore the inexplicable termination of counting on election night;
the laughable “Biden only” ballot drops during the dead of night;
the software “glitches” that swapped thousands of Trump votes for Biden;
the tens of thousands of votes submitted after Election Day;
the postal workers charged with backdating illegal ballots;
the improbably high percentage of voter turnout in Wisconsin and parts of Michigan;
the Republicans blocked from observing the counting process in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Atlanta;
the number of non-Nevada voters who voted for Biden in Nevada;
those who voted multiple times;
and the Election Day miracle that saw the graves of our fellow Americans open wide so tens of thousands of cadavers could vote for Joe Biden.

None of this matters to the media mob.

But at least a few, like South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, have denounced Joe Biden’s premature declaration of victory.

When news anchor George Stephanopoulos asked Governor Noem on Sunday if she would be willing to work with Biden to reduce covid-19 rates in her state, Noem said: “This is a premature conversation because we have not finished counting votes. There are states that have not been called, and back in 2000, Al Gore was given his day in court. We should give President Trump his day in court. Let the process unfold because, George, we live in a republic.”

Governor Noem makes a good point. If the media are so sure Joe Biden won fair and square, what are they afraid of? They gave former Vice President Al Gore 37 days to challenge the 2000 U.S. presidential election, but are now moving to impose Joe Biden on the country amid ongoing recount requests and legal battles. They want to make it look like a Biden presidency is inevitable. They want to run out the clock before the countless voter fraud allegations are thoroughly investigated.

Keep in mind, states have not yet certified their election results, recounts have not yet started in Wisconsin and Georgia, and the Supreme Court has not yet ruled on those Pennsylvania ballots that came in after the deadline.

On Election Day, the New York Times posted this revealing tweet: “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media. The broadcast networks and cable news outlets have vowed to be prudent.”

They later deleted this tweet, saying, “We’ve deleted an earlier tweet that referred imprecisely to the role of the news media in the U.S. presidential election. The news media projects winners and reports results; it does not declare the winner of the election.”

After a severe backlash, the Times essentially apologized for overstepping its bounds. Then, five days later, they joined the media mob in declaring Joe Biden the winner! The news media’s role is to report facts, including credible evidence of election fraud, recounts and other pertinent information.

But it has instead colluded to declare a radical new administration. And the whole world is expected to follow along. Many people are following along. Even many conservatives and Christians who strongly oppose Biden and the radical Democratic Party feel there is nothing they can do.

But when practically every prominent and powerful voice says, “This is the way it’s going to be, no dissent tolerated”, that is when God’s servants speak up and say, “This is what God says!” Even though the mainstream media had declared Biden as the winner of the election, “that’s not going to remain that way, even though it certainly looks like it.”

The United States of America may soon experience its own miraculous victory as God intervenes as recorded in Scripture. The fight is far from over. President Donald Trump’s litigation effort is only starting.

As of today, it still is unclear to Americans who has won the 2020 presidential election. But adversaries of the United States were able to see one thing plainly: “The deep divides of American society that were made ever deeper by the election mean the nation is weakening, creating space for U.S. rivals to assert their will with a freer hand.”

Richard Berry, a commentator for Goodmoneyguide.com, said that America’s democratic dysfunction has two world leaders particularly delighted. “Two presidents have emerged as clear winners of the U.S. election. Unfortunately, they’re sitting in Beijing and Moscow.”

It is not difficult to see how these two leaders, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, are “winners” of a divided and distracted America.

First, both of these men wish to better dominate their own nations, and a de-legitimized American democracy helps them tighten their dictatorial power grips. Peter Kammerer of the South China Morning Post explained: Xi and Putin have held on to power by convincing their citizens that their systems of government are superior to the democracies of the West.” And all of America’s dysfunction and division “have made it easy for the Chinese and Russian leaders to contend that democracy is broken, corrupt and damaging.”

Secondly, Putin and Xi both seek for their nations to dominate more of the globe. And both understand this can be achieved more quickly if America is divided and distracted.

Vasily Kashin, senior research fellow at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, said: “What is important is not Biden or Trump occupying the White House, but the degree of the American political and economic crisis. With the current course of events, that crisis can be expected to deepen, weakening the U.S. globally.”

And a globally weaker U.S. means the force that has prevented aggressor nations from running roughshod over the world for 75 years is now on the back foot. America is distracted by internal afflictions and thus less capable of policing the world—including by challenging Russian and Chinese adventurism beyond their borders.

“Sickness saps a nation’s vitality as surely as it does a man’s. Initiative and energy are diverted, consumed by internal battles. Americans are so fixated on the divisions that are devouring us, we have lost sight of the rest of the world, and of our example, and our obligation to lead. It truly is the world’s loss.”

Truly, America’s political crisis is the world’s loss. And it is Russia’s and China’s gain. It should come as no surprise to see how delighted many in Russia and China have been by the U.S.’s dysfunction.

China’s state-run Global Times, which functions as a mouthpiece for the Chinese Communist Party, has breathlessly commented on America’s election troubles. It wrote “What is happening during the U.S. election is something that we could have never imaged in this ‘Beacon of Freedom. Disputes, chaos and the refusal of election results by certain candidates were supposed to take place in developing countries where political conditions were not stable and definitely not in a country like the U.S. But things have changed, all these have occurred in the U.S., and the U.S. is not synonymous to a stable, civilized and consensus-based society anymore.”

The publication added: “This is costing the U.S.’s international reputation as well.” Global Times editor in chief Hu Xijin tweeted on Election Day that the unrest and fear show that the “U.S. is in degradation.”

“Ahead of the election, some businesses in the US are boarding up their store windows fearing post-election unrest. This kind of unrest is usually complication of elections in poor countries, but people are worried it may appear in the US. The US is in degradation.”  pic.twitter.com/bBzPiwhVgg — Hu Xijin 胡锡进 (@HuXijin_GT) November 3, 2020

For decades, American supremacy has brought stability to much of the world. But as more and more power is being shifted away from us, the “freer hand” that Russia and China will have as America continues to succumb to its internal afflictions will only speed the shift of global power away from America and toward these other nations.

This shift in global power is deeply alarming and terrifying news. “People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” (Luke 21:26)

Notice the very next verse! “At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (verse 27). These times of the Gentiles lead directly to the return of Jesus Christ!

Now that is good news!
