This is, in part, a response to the 3,000 ads purchased by a shadowy Russian entity known as the Internet Research Agency in a $100,000 ad buy that was supposedly a way to meddle in 2016 U.S. election. Facebook has turned over those ads to Congress for the never-ending Russian investigation.
Facebook is also implementing a five-part strategy to root out what it considers improper ads through more transparency, tighter content restrictions, and authentication, and establishing best practices across social media platforms. As part of this process, there will be further vetting of targeted ads by human reviewers. Once fully implemented, the changes will also allow users to see any ad from a given organization rather than just those ads targeted to the user, which is the case now. Any ads spreading hate or violence will be scrubbed.
Twitter systematically buries tweets that harm the Democratic agenda as well as shut down Conservative sites
Twitter has evolved significantly since it first launched back in 2006. It has transitioned from a typical social media site that was primarily used by young people to share their lives with the world, to a site that is now used just as much to share news and current events as it is for socializing and entertainment. In recent months, however, it appears that Twitter is beginning to change yet again, and it is starting to become blatantly obvious that the social media site now has, as one of its primary goals, the advancement of liberalism and the suppression of conservative thought.
The Daily Caller reported that during the last two months of the 2016 presidential campaign, Twitter intentionally buried tweets related to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and the chairman of the Clinton campaign John Podesta. According to Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett, the social media website hid nearly half of the tweets that included the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of the tweets that used the hashtag #PodestaEmails.
“Approximately one quarter (25%) of [#PodestaEmails tweets] received internal tags from our automation detection systems that hid them from searches,” Edgett explained, adding, “Our systems detected and hid just under half (48%) of the Tweets relating to variants of another notable hashtag, #DNCLeak, which concerned the disclosure of leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.”
Google determined to silence Conservatives
Now, Google is doing everything they can to prevent details about the way the company treats conservative employees from leaking to the public. As reported by Breitbart News, just days after WIRED published a piece that viciously attacked the whistleblowers at Google who has come forward with claims of abuse and intimidation towards conservative employees, a Senior Vice President at the company is doubling down and promising retribution against employees who choose to publicly speak out about their concerns.

“Sometimes, like yesterday, I am… saddened? Taken aback? disgusted? by the thought that there are Googlers coming to work filled with gate [sic] towards their colleagues,” wrote Google Senior Vice President Urs Hölzle in a message posted on the company’s internal channels, which was obtained by Breitbart Tech. “I’m not even sure what adjective to use….but it’s sad. No matter the topic, there’s just no room for hate at Google.” The senior vice president went on to say that “we can’t let a small fraction of employees dominate our thoughts, feelings, and culture,” and that he hopes to “identify those behind this reprehensible conduct.”
Soviet-style CENSORSHIP: Left-wing traitors in the Dept. of Defense now blocking entire websites from being viewed by members of the military. When the government has enough power to determine which citizens are allowed to access certain content on the Internet and which citizens are not, we are no longer living in a free society; we are living under an emerging totalitarian state, quite similar to the old Soviet Union. This is where we are today in regards to Social Media.
When any White House information is released or the FISA memos are released, watch for massive, coordinated censorship and “glitches” across Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
The release of the FISA memos, which means the covert, criminal deep state that flourished under the corruption of the Obama regime is about to be exposed for all to see.
Accordingly, the deep state is in a whole new state of absolute panic. The “Schiff” is about to hit the fan. The new history of America is about to be emblazoned on our collective consciousness, and we will never look at government the same way again.
YouTube moves to shut down all independent media coverage
If you’ve been wondering whether the official story of how events transpired in the Las Vegas shooting was actually based in truth, wonder no more: YouTube has taken a bold move to shut down all independent media video coverage of the Mandalay Bay Massacre in a last-ditch, desperate attempt to control the narrative.
According to the Wall Street Journal, YouTube search results were causing “debunked claims” about the Las Vegas massacre to rise to the top of some search results, and this annoyed Google to the point of taking swift action to censor those sources. According to the WSJ: Hundreds of YouTube viral videos were shut down by YouTube on the Las Vegas shooting, which is the biggest censorship to date.
For example, the fifth result when searching “Las Vegas shooting” on YouTube late Tuesday yielded a video titled “Proof Las Vegas Shooting Was a FALSE FLAG attack—Shooter on 4th Floor.” The video said there were multiple shooters in Sunday’s mass shooting, a claim dismissed by law enforcement. Posted by a channel called the End Times News Report, it amassed more than 1.1 million views in about 27 hours.
