The United Tech Government Of Amerika
Ol Jo Goebbels (Bernays disciple) would be proud.
Absolute and complete control of all media now rests in the hands of a few oligarchs. The oligarchs now completely control the government to the extent one cannot tell where one begins and the other ends. In my mind I see a den of snakes intertwined. (analogy intentional)
The first amendment along with pretty much the rest of the constitution (they will get your guns) is completely irrelevant. The signs are everywhere. For me the most blatant is the fact that Obomba became the first president to murder Amerikaan citizens and barely a word of protest was heard. Obviously the Republicans would not object since they would be happy to engage in assassination as well. The constitution at one time provided some modicum of protection of individuals rights. Those protections have been slowly stripped away since the Constitution was signed. I don’t think anyone could seriously say Amerikaans possess as much liberty as they did in 1789. Supposedly their is equality of justice under the law. That disappears when fundamental principles, like due process no longer apply. It disappears the concept of innocent till proven guilty, and the right to a trial become passe.
Now with the complete and absolute control of 99% of media by the oligarchs the narrative is what Big Brother says it is. Opposition is futile. The message is clear. You will be punished for questioning anything at all.

Big Tech Tyranny Can Ruin America
By Buck Sexton
While many people on the Right saw the digital purge coming, the ferocity of the ambush has been a shock… The major tech companies – specifically Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter – have become absolutely brazen in their partisan assaults. Whereas they used to pretend that right-of-center views were mysteriously censored or banished by accident, it seems now they are outright telling America, “We decide what you can say.”
If you don’t abide by their dictates, they will banish you from the Internet.
To make matters worse, it now seems that these companies are working together. A handful of the most powerful, wealthy, and influential companies on the planet have shown they can unite to elevate or destroy political candidates, online competitors, or anyone they decide is a threat to their messianic-progressive worldview.
They’ve become the world’s most powerful censorship cartel.
It’s not an exaggeration to say this is the most serious threat to free speech since the founding of the Internet. The tech giants not only control the most important content platforms online, they own and run much of the Internet’s underlying infrastructure.
It’s one thing to be told you can’t Tweet anymore or your Facebook videos have been demonetized…
It’s another to find out – as the free-speech micro-blogging site Parler did last week – that Amazon Web Services has actually shut off your servers and put you entirely out of business. Add to that the flight of text messaging, e-mail, payment processors, and even legal services (all of which also happened to Parler) because nobody wants to cross the censorship cartel. And it’s clear that Silicon Valley has the ability to annihilate any online enterprise with insufficient Left-wing politics.
While there is extreme tension around the transfer of government power right now, the first signs of the great digital purge had nothing to do with the 2020 election. The social media suppression campaign of the New York Post reporting about Hunter Biden as “hacked information” was certainly a major indicator of trouble to come. But the oligarchs of Silicon Valley showed us what they were planning even earlier than that with their “fact checks” around COVID-19.
Question the efficacy of masks against the virus? Get suspended from Facebook for misinformation. Claim on Twitter that pandemic lockdowns haven’t stopped the virus in major cities? Watch as your account gets dinged with a fact check for “lacking context.”
The COVID-19 pandemic remains a policy issue of urgent national and global concern, but only approved narratives are allowed online. Deviate from them, and you find yourself throttled, shadow banned, or booted off the platform altogether
Who determines what the limits of acceptable speech are in America today? It’s a combination of Big Tech’s “independent fact checkers” who seem to have an obvious preference for Leftist politics, and algorithms that unsurprisingly suppress and target conservatives.
They used to call this political targeting of conservatives a conspiracy theory… Now, the tech giants seem to be playing favorites, and that means Democrats have a huge advantage in the entire online ecosystem.
For Google, Amazon, and the social media platforms to shut down speech they dislike is deeply un-American. The First Amendment is a law that protects us from government action, but it’s also a principle that the American experiment relies on.
For all their claims about transparency and open platforms, we can see that Silicon Valley has produced companies that are dishonest with the public about their intentions when it comes to free speech. It appears they are now explicitly political actors, tilting the entirety of American political discourse to the Left.
This censorship will lead the country down a dangerous path if it continues. Ideas that the Internet elites deem too dangerous or problematic for online sharing will find other ways to spread. Dark conspiracies will flourish, as will distrust and mounting frustration. Eventually, such suppression will boil over.
The only easy answer to this problem would be for the Internet giants to voluntarily cede their editorial powers and promote the open exchange of ideas. But they absolutely won’t… Their leadership cadres are made up of Democrat donors, and many of their rank-and-file workers are “woke” activists. They enjoy this new power to silence anyone with the temerity to challenge “the science” behind COVID-19 lockdowns.
All of this is likely to get worse before it gets better. Their ultimate plan is not to eliminate hate from the Internet, but to hobble conservatism as an ideological force in American politics. If the oligarchs at Google, Facebook, and Amazon have to sacrifice our central freedom to get there, they view it as a small price to pay. And they’ve got deep pockets.
MM there is no doubt what you’ve posted is accurate. I would give you two thumbs up for this post if I could. We should be VERY concerned. There is also no doubt that all of these digital companies use personal data collected (data mining) to determine who is willing to be part of their takeover/party…. and who will resist.
Political opponents of big tech and “media’s” chosen, will NOT be tolerated. Those that support conservative views and policies will be vilified and in time reformed or removed. One either follows the party line or there will be a price to pay. It’s here!
The social credit system of China has come to Amerika. Government jobs have become political appointments. We see it clearly in the FBI. With one party control over the entire government, those that have posted conservative views online need not apply.
Slavery used to be “involuntary servitude” but that has been long displaced by “voluntary servitude.” The “government” gives people section 8 housing, food stamps, free medical care, low income energy assistance, and free 0bama phones. Enjoy the meager existence and vote for me, you’re mine, whether you know it or not. How many more can we force into “government dependency, ownership, and voter control. Open the borders give immediate citizenship to those that will be “government dependent.” Voluntary servitude, the “new and modern slavery.” It’s here.
We are in for very rapid societal, economic, and political changes. Obama stated he would “fundamentally transform Amerika” With full control of the government there is no stopping it. In times like these, being well prepared physically, mentally, economically, and spiritually is vital. Most here focus on the first three aforementioned preparations, I on the latter. For those that haven’t read the New Testament, I would highly recommend it.
I was having this same discussion with someone yesterday.. People that get fired for what they say on social media etc. , not because their employer doesnt agree with them or feel that they dont have the right for their opinions, but they are afraid of the repercussion to their business by those in that tech control. So its a lot deeper..
The first amendment along with pretty much the rest of the constitution (they will get your guns) is completely irrelevant.
I wouldn’t go that pessimistic quite yet. They still have their guns and they all know where the Big Media and Big Tech studios/offices are, and they are unbelievably pissed at the super-mafia criminal network / information monopoly censorship cartel. The curtain has been pulled back:
I am somewhat surprised you missed the point. The point being that there are still many people who believe the Constitution is still relevant. It is not in any way shape or form.
How do we break up big tech into controllable pieces?
We may as well break up the rest of the corp monopolies and media monopolies while we are at it.
Teddy Roosevelt was able to trust bust in his day. Its needed again.
Stop using them. There are 80 million plus people who are directly being screwed by, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon etc. They need you more than you need them
