The Post Biden Block- Twitter & Facebook Do A Streisand

I was thinking “Yeah, so what else is new?” about this story. We already know that Biden is dirty, that his kid is dirty, that they raked in $Buckets of money from China and likely others. Essentially that the corruption of the DNC is nearly complete and the Bidens are up to their ears in the resulting green. We also know that “Big Tech” are fully in bed with the DNC. (whether as Left Partisans or under TLA Influence is still unclear, perhaps both).

Given that, were’s the story?

Well, “The Story” is that a major Real News organization, the New York Post, is being censored by Twitter, Facebook, and likely Youtube. Since when did Twitter & Facebook become the Editorial Staff of The NY Post?

Here, The Quartering, does a good rant on the whole thing:

Particularly interesting to me was that a few Senators are actually writing letters to said Big Tech Honchos asking them, in essence, “What the hell are you thinking?”…

So, in keeping with the best aspects of The Streisand Effect, I figured I ought to do a “tag on” helping to spread The Story. Both the Biden’s Greed & Graft story, and, for me, the more important “Big Tech Censor’s The Mainstream News!” story (that in some ways I think is more important).

My position:

I’ve already stated before my position on this event. It isn’t your typical point of view. Simply put, there is not enough staff at Facebook & Twitter, and they are neither smart enough nor subtle enough, to censor ALL the “fake news” while also suppressing the politically sensitive (read “damaging to Democrats”) real stories. As a result, they are Ham Handed and focus on the “stuff that matters” (as all major corporation management does). The necessary consequence of this, much like the Streisand Effect, is that attempts to HIDE stories become advertising of the stories AND become strong evidence for the veracity of the Story. Essentially: Their actions are a negative indicator. The more they holler “Fake” the more we hear “Here Be Truth”.

Following the Chinese Communist Party Censorship model does not work. The bits will flow. The suppression becomes the story. In a world of ubiquitous cameras, microphones, networks and encryption, you can not hide a story, you can only draw attention to it.

Good luck with that, Twatter and Faceplant….

    Indeed, and to me, especially when you do it to a press agency that was founded by Alexander Hamilton!

  2. Nancy & John Hultquist says:

    Jo Nova has a post up about BidenGate.

    Here’s the thing: Many people no longer get a daily newspaper at home, and many news papers are pay walled. Many people do use facebook and twitter.
    Thus and therefore, that FB & TW have tried to suppress this story, they have in fact “streisanded” it.
    Nevertheless, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is so debilitating that this story will not have a big effect on voters. Just my guess.

  3. pinroot says:

    Someone on Twitter posted an article which states that Biden did not pressure anyone to fire the prosecutor. When people posted the infamous video of Biden threatening to withhold a billion dollars in aide unless the prosecutor was fired, the TDS crowd dismissed it out of hand. Apparently they don’t consider that “pressuring”. Of course, these are the same people who just decided, in less than a day, that the phrase “sexual preference” is offensive. Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary has already changed their definition to include the “offensive” label.

  4. E.M.Smith says:

    Oh My, it gets worse. Twitter has locked BOTH POTUS Trump and his Press Secretary accounts for saying Biden is corrupt. Gee, “election interference” much?

    Sorry, not sorry: Twitter locks Trump’s campaign account for posting Biden Ukraine story after shutting down WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s – and DESPITE apology from Jack Dorsey for giving ‘zero context’
    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized and called some of the company’s actions in banning the sharing of the New York Post article ‘unacceptable’
    He said there hadn’t been enough explanation as to why and that it was because ‘personal information was shared’
    He then reposted a series of posts from Twitter where the company claimed it blocked the story because it contains ‘personal information’
    The story contains screenshots where Hunter Biden’s old email address and that of Ukrainian businessman Vadym Pozharskyi are shown
    Facebook says it has reduced distribution of the story until it is fact-checked
    It won’t say though who is checking the story or why it thinks it’s incredible
    Trump called their actions ‘terrible’ and threatened to remove protections which stops them from being liable for content shared on their platforms
    The Team Trump campaign Twitter has been locked because it shared the article
    Ted Cruz is now among Republicans demanding that Twitter and Facebook explain themselves

    Hey, Trump! How about moving to minds or parler or other alternatives? Keep the Twitter, but for now, “tweet” where speech is free!

    “Senator Tom Cotton on Big Tech Censorship: “Winter is Coming”… ”

    “A Trump victory will destroy these entities; and the likelihood of a Trump victory increases in direct proportion to their efforts to advance censorship…. it is a very unique situation.”

  7. Graeme No.3 says:

    An all costs attempt to stop Trump winning. If he does there will be big problems for Facebook and Twitter and their senior executives. Survival will be their major concern.
    It highlights the censorship applied to all things sceptical about global warming/climate change and the likely cooling will result in a change in public acceptance of these actually happening, followed by some politicians speaking out, and a reluctance to throw more money to the believers.

    That was the visual I had going when I typed the above… loved that movie. But didn’t have time to find the clip. Nicely done, & thanks!

    @Another Ian:

    Unless they have a TLA “Get Out Of Jail Free” card, showing they were being forced to do it, those executives just fried their companies. Sec.230 will be toast for them and the law suits will drain them dry…

    @Graeme No. 3:

    I think it is becoming clear to more folks that the whole “Global Warming” scam is just another Chinese leveraging of the UN to cripple the west while they get a free ride on increased use of cheaper fossil fuels.

    The film made as the continuation of Firefly after Yet Another Great Series was canceled because Studio Executives are Stupid Dickheads.

    Best seen in order, Firefly first, then Serenity. But I saw them in reverse order and it still works, but with a bit of delayed nostalgia and modest confusion at the context of Serenity.

Thank you for your patience in this matter”

  12. philjourdan says:

    I have been saying that liberals are not chess players. They fail to see the next step and the next step. They live in the present, and cannot envision a future. That is why the Biden rule killed Garlands nomination and the Reid rule assured ACBs elevation to SCOTUS.

    These tech giants are the same way. I like the term “streisanded” as I have been saying the Barbra Streisand effect, which is wordy. So I will use streisanded in the future.

    Beyond the section 230 snafu, they also violated election laws by giving in kind donations to the democrats. That is a no-no. Their hatred will be their downfall.

    It’s a coup! Well, the first step, which was to commandeer control of the radio station. Which is so yesterday; today you have to first take control of the internet and TV and newspapers. Check. Then take control of the police forces. Check. Isolate the leader. Check. Release the mob.

    What makes Communists in the first world? Some mug shots got me thinking.

    Where Communists come from ==> Child abuse. ==> The Face Of Young Communism

    Also what makes a drug addict?

    Addiction is a symptom of PTSD. Says Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine Eric Kandel. Dr. Lonny Shavelson found that 70% of female heroin addicts were sexually abused in childhood.

    Now you know why lefties coalesce around drug issues. Letting them have the Drugs they need is cheaper than Communism.

    In any case – we have a child abuse problem. About 20% have the long term/severe PTSD genes. About half those have enough trauma to activate the PTSD. That is a lot of child abuse.

  26. M Simon says:

    And one other thing. PTSD is the basis for most criminality in America – from my experience as a gang member. Child abuse iis the cause of most of that PTSD.

    “Unbelievable – Facebook’s Lead Executive on Election Policy Was Vice-President Joe Biden’s Advisor to Ukraine…”

    “That’s right folks, the Facebook executive currently blocking all of the negative evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activity in Ukraine is the same person who was coordinating the corrupt activity between the Biden family payoffs and Ukraine.”

    I guess that wasn’t supposed to come out before election day – if at all.

  28. YMMV says:

    @Another Ian,
    Anna Makanju, “Anna Adeola Makanju is currently working on content regulation at Facebook. Previously, she was the Special Policy Advisor for Europe and Eurasia to Vice President Biden,” and lots of things before that. “Anna was born in St. Petersburg, Russia to a Nigerian father and Ukrainian mother. When Anna was 11 years old, her family moved to Germany, then Phoenix, then Kuwait – where they lived until the beginning of the Persian Gulf War – and finally to Texas.” Was “a field organizer for the Obama for America campaign and joined the Obama administration in 2009.”
    This from
    That’s the Paul and Daisy Soros website. George Soros had a older brother named Paul, now deceased.

    “Anna Makanju, Biden’s senior policy adviser for Ukraine at the time, also listened to the calls” and “She helped Biden prepare for the conversations”

  31. E.M.Smith says:

    Oh Dear:

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Breitbart News senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer stated that the emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s one-time business associate, Bevan Cooney, show “a veritable United Nations of corruption” and that 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, “as vice president of the United States, was a center point. It was almost the planet around which these business activities moved.”

    Schweizer said, [relevant remarks begin around 3:40] “[W]hat those emails show, the 26,000 show, we’re working our way through them, is a wide net of using the Biden name, using access to the White House, serving — Hunter serving as the pipeline to the administration as means to help their clients and gain clients. The names that come up in this are the Chinese, the Russians, the Ukrainians, the Kazakhs.M.b< It’s a veritable United Nations of corruption. And what it demonstrates is that Joe Biden, as vice president of the United States, was a center point. It was almost the planet around which these business activities moved.”

    So a second line of corruption evidence…

  32. YMMV says:

    Like father like son.

    RT reports “Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai promised to “move forward with a rulemaking to clarify” the meaning of Section 230.” About time.
    (How quickly could that happen?)

    More on Anna Makanju. Atlantic Council claims to be non-partisan, but the list of names is very Obamian. “Burisma Holdings donated $300,000 dollars to the Atlantic Council, over the course of three consecutive years, beginning in 2016.” “Burisma started paying the Atlantic Council a lot of money in 2016, right when Makanju was advising Biden regarding getting rid of Shokin.”

Maybe many won’t even bother to mail in absentee ballots that they honestly requested.
