Just in time for congressional midterm elections, Facebook, Google (YouTube), Twitter, and Reddit, in a coordinated effort launched a massive purge on October 11, 2018 of any page or account that questions the government, points out police brutality or is devoted to peace and liberty.
“Today, we’re removing 559 Pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Facebook said in a blog post. “People will only share on Facebook if they feel safe and trust the connections they make here.”

“It is totally reasonable for companies to say, ‘If you abuse our mechanisms, we will punish you, even if the individual content is OK,’ ” said Alex Stamos, who resigned as Facebook’s chief security officer this summer and is now a Stanford University professor. “Facebook first reduced the ability to use ads to punish extreme content. Now they are attacking organic recommendation systems, such as the likes and shares used to artificially inflate posts.”
“I would gladly abide by Facebook’s terms if I understood what they were,” said Chris Metcalf, the publisher of the left-leaning “Reasonable People Unite”, which he said had a total of 2.25 million followers. “I am a legitimate political activist. I don’t have a clickbait blog. I don’t have a fake news website. And I haven’t been doing anything that all the other pages in this space aren’t doing.”
A sample of some of the pages being removed. These are not fake/spam/clickbait accounts. These are pages attempting to decipher the truth in a world of lies.
This is blatant political and information censorship:
Press For Truth is another page that was removed. This is not a fake/spam account trying to clickbait you. Dan Dicks is an independent journalist trying to provide real research and truth. As he puts it: “… exactly what happens when these tech companies appoint themselves as the gatekeepers of political thought and political opinion.” He was memory-holed just as he was in the middle of editing a video revealing Google’s plan to silence political opponents.
Leaked Internal Google Document Explains Big Tech’s “Shift Towards Censorship”
A leaked 85-page internal Google document titled “The Good Censor,” advises tech companies to begin to siphon free speech by transitioning away from the “American tradition” of free speech over to a European model. As Breitbart states, the “European model” takes into account dignity over liberty and civility over freedom.
Page 14 of the briefing admits that Google, along with Twitter and Facebook, now “control the majority of online conversations.”
Page 49 accuses Trump of spreading the conspiracy theory that Google favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election – and then admits that they did favor Hillary Clinton.
Page 70 sums up the reasons for big tech’s “shift towards censorship,” including the need to respond to regulatory demands and “expand globally,” to “monetize content through its organization,” and to “protect advertisers from controversial content, (and) increase revenues.”

Reddit Banning Users Who Question the Official 9/11 Narrative
A highly popular subreddit devoted to posting information which proposed information outside the official narrative to 9/11 has been “Quarantined” by the Reddit Administrators. The community has effectively been cut off from the rest of the platform and anyone who wishes to view its contents are forced to go through a checkpoint while being redirected to a government website.
It may contain a high degree of misinformation. If you are seeking historical information about the September 11 attacks, please visit the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (https://www.9-11commission.gov/).
The idea of Reddit redirecting people away from this open source subreddit to the official 9/11 Commission website is as ironic as it is ominous— as the 9/11 commission admitted it was railroaded in their own investigation and it is full of controversy.
Leaked Internal NSA Document: From PSYOP to MindWar – The Psychology of Victory (1980)
“The advantage of Mind War is that it conducts wars in nonlethal, noninjurious, and nondestructive ways. Essentially you overwhelm your enemy with argument. You seize control of all of the means by which his government and populace process information to make up their minds, and you adjust it so that those minds are made up as you desire.”
“… the U.S. Army already possesses an operational weapons systems designed to do what LTC Alexander would like ESP to do – except that this weapons systems uses existing communications media. It seeks to map the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then to change them in accordance with U.S. national interests … In its present form it is called Psychological Operations (PSYOP).”
