Tech Monopolies Remove US President


… And its 75 Million Voters… 

For comparison, the ever popular monopolist president Obama maxed out at 69 million voters…

The internet tech monopolies were created under Obama to complement the plutocratic control of the worldwide media. The classical media, once known as the “free press” had become plutocratically owned, or financed, in the last few decades.

The result has been astounding. An entire generation knowing just one thing: Trump is the devil and racism is his prophet. Just condemn, hound and destroy Trump, and the world will be good at last.  

So Facebook and its subparts (Instagram, etc.) cancelled Trump. Now Twitter has also cancelled Trump for two tweets which, on the face of it, are rather innocuous: one, in accord with Biden said he will not be at the inauguration (Twitter viewed that as violent), the other lauded 75 million Americans. For comparison, tweets calling for the destruction of Israel by the Iranian president have not been removed.

Some argue that the Zionist regime is a reality that the region must come to terms with. Today the #Covid_19 is a reality; should it be accepted or fought?! The long-lasting virus of Zionism will be uprooted thanks to the determination and faith of the youth. #Covid1948

The Zionist regime is the most evident example of state terrorism. Ever since Britain’s anti-Islamic, antihuman policies put the Zionists to rule in #Palestine, they have been acting like a cancerous tumor, furthering their goals by massacring children, women and men. #FlyTheFlag

Under Obama, Google, Facebook and Twitter were enabled to gather monopoly powers. This was a Deep State trick. Larry Summers was the economy chief under Obama, an enabler of the financial plutocracy. His assistant, and, or significant other, never elected was sent to beef up Google, and then Facebook. She is now a billionaire, and long second in command at Facebook. Her husband died in a treadmill accident in Mexico.

Twitter decided that the information that Trump would not attend the inauguration (as impeachment presidents tend not to!) was an “incitement to violence and a glorification of violence”. That was after Biden said, earlier in the day, that he was happy that Trump will not be attending the inauguration. Does that mean Biden incites to, and glorifies violence too? Then Twitter called the following tweet a glorification of violence: “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”  

So let me repeat and quote in extenso the declaration by Twitter:

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter permanently suspended the @realDonaldTrump account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” Friday night. Twitter said it made a decision after a review of recent tweets from President Donald Trump and the context around them.

Specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter,” Twitter said in a statement. Earlier in the week, Twitter had suspended his account for 12 hours after the U.S. Capitol riots (as if Trump had opened the doors… which is what the US Capitol Police actually did. Biden said that was because of racism. But one of the three top officials is black…

Twitter, forgetting that it is intervening in the election process by leveraging its monopoly powers, and lack of governing law, released a “comprehensive analysis of our policy enforcement approach in this case.” Here it is:

Twitter analysis

Overview

On January 8, 2021, President Donald J. Trump tweeted:

“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

Shortly thereafter, the President tweeted:

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

Due to the ongoing tensions in the United States, and an uptick in the global conversation in regards to the people who violently stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks. After assessing the language in these Tweets against our Glorification of Violence policy, we have determined that these Tweets are in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy and the user @realDonaldTrump should be immediately permanently suspended from the service.

Assessment

We assessed the two Tweets referenced above under our Glorification of Violence policy, which aims to prevent the glorification of violence that could inspire others to replicate violent acts and determined that they were highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal acts that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

This determination is based on a number of factors, including:

– President Trump’s statement that he will not be attending the Inauguration is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate and is seen as him disavowing his previous claim made via two Tweets (1, 2) by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Dan Scavino, that there would be an “orderly transition” on January 20th.

– The second Tweet may also serve as encouragement to those potentially considering violent acts that the Inauguration would be a “safe” target, as he will not be attending. 

– The use of the words “American Patriots” to describe some of his supporters is also being interpreted as support for those committing violent acts at the US Capitol.

– The mention of his supporters having a “GIANT VOICE long into the future” and that “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!” is being interpreted as further indication that President Trump does not plan to facilitate an “orderly transition” and instead that he plans to continue to support, empower, and shield those who believe he won the election. 

– Plans for future armed protests have already begun proliferating on and off-Twitter, including a proposed secondary attack on the US Capitol and state capitol buildings on January 17, 2021. 

As such, our determination is that the two Tweets above are likely to inspire others to replicate the violent acts that took place on January 6, 2021, and that there are multiple indicators that they are being received and understood as encouragement to do so.

Here we are, a culmination of the deficiency of the school system. Decades of ever greater inability to think, learn, and ask a fundamental question:”who elected you?”.

The answer is very simple: the financial plutocracy. Twitter was indeed losing money for a decade or so, ever since its creation.

P/S: A few hours after the preceding essay was written, Apple and Google, which control the Internet, banned the Twitter concurrent “Parler“… Parler is French for “speak” as in the concept of “Parliament”. “Parler” does not censor (yet). More specifically the duopoly removed the “App”. As they do continual updates, older versions of the App will become dysfunctional. Apple and Google, tech monopolies as they are, and organs of the plutocracy in power, correctly evaluated the existential threat “Populism” directed towards them… (Am I still allowed to write this? Don’t laugh, several of my followers were terminated by Twitter in the last few hours…)

Now, make no mistake: I long called for a “Department of Truth”, which would evaluate the pertinence and plausibility of statements (it could be voluntary in the first few decades). In particular anything violating the laws of the Republic should be prosecuted (like calls to murder, genocide, etc.). Notice that refusal to certify an election should be considered illegal, as, precisely, elected representatives are free to do. If they forbidden to refuse them affirming it would have no meaning… However, the Plutocratically Owned Media (POM) creates headlines that way.

    There’s no excuse for what the petulant psychopath President did to incite the riot. None.

    What is not clear, Patrice, is why you had become an apologist for this psychopath.

      Well, Lovell, what would be helpful is that you take a sample of what you object to, you know, like a quote, and give us a hint of what you disagree with. I watch the politicians live, when they speak. Then I compare with what the New York Times, WSJ and many others I subscribe to, say. The differences are astounding.
      And what is your proof that Trump incited the “riot”? And who let the rioters in? Oh, we have tapes, you know… Trump called it a “heinous attack”, full prosecution, etc.

      And I guess you are OK with all the rabid and lethal propaganda found in social media, like the Khamenei tweets… and which is not being censored, or a fortiori banned, whereas Trump was for the two rather innocuous tweets he wrote. BTW, I am FOR Khamenei expressing his hatred. Then I can quote it, because I like to quote, not just insult without foundations. It’s complicated, it requires civilizational advance….

      Anyway, happy new year. Trump is history, the future is Susan Rice, sitting pretty in the White House, who greatly helped in the holocaust of more than 6 millions in Kivu (by being Kagame’s agent, himself an agent of the US Deep State…) Differently from you, I have a Fatwa for the government of 200 million people country the US Deep State pretty much created… Pelosi and company do not care: they have armed protection, they actually encourage inequalities, as anybody who has walked 15 minutes from Pelosi or Feinstein mansions, in the right direction, knows…

        Come on now Patrice, did you miss that there was a prep rally at the White House ground whereby the Twitterer-In-Chief urged his crowd that they can’t defeat the “enemy” by weakness – meaning they need to have a show of force and storm the canvassers at the Capitol because, you know, election fraud and stealing the vote and all the bogus crappy allegations imagined by this shambolic fraudster himself.

          TWITTER said that the fact Trump signaled (and Biden agrees) he will not be coming to the inauguration was “glorifying violence”. Now you seem to be saying that NOT finding this tweet to be a glorification of violence is “apologizing for this maniac of a president”.

          As myself a victim of religious violence (of the lethal type) from propagandists, in more ways than one, I have been aghast about the social media encouraging and enabling them. But this is nothing new, it started 110 years ago… So I very much want the violence to be removed. But that has to start with identifying it correctly.

          San Francisco has become a maniacal place over the last 30 years… and Trump did not start it… Democratic politicians did. When you live in the place itself, you can see how it works. The truth is, many of these so-called “Democrats” are on the right of Trump, and are only saved because FOX keeps on calling them “left”… which confuses everybody. Even the water supply is contaminated by feces a mile away from Nancy’s mansion… Hey, the UN said it… But the hatred around is nearly comical…

          It is going to be interesting to see how many and how much, Biden reverts Trump’s policies.

            This pandemic had worsened the financial condition of states and local governments which forced them to cut back on expenses and public services. McConnell and Trump opposed subsidies to states, especially blue ones like California.

            The neoliberal march towards privatization and austerity was started by Ronald Reagan in 1980’s and continued by both Clinton, Bush, and Obama culminating now in the fascist and populist regime of a madman.

            It is a bit complicated here. I am involved in Dem politics… And I led my own insurrection. And won, for now. I have related some of it here. There was a lot of real estate corruption involved, complete with a Dem politician who talked to me in the dark, so I could not see his face! The Mayor resigned…
            Now some of my enemies are on the payroll… while I am protecting a forest which is one of the last sanctuary of Western Monarchs from real estate plutocracy… Guess what? They apparently poisoned the forest: it’s dying…

            I know a hospital executive not even old, who works miles away from any patient… She is already vaccinated, although not at risk. In the high density where I am there is COVID, in another one a mile away, 540/540 and several deaths..

            Now on this the CDC and Trump are culprit. I am happy that my flurry of tweets to Biden may have worked, as he changed and committed to the one shot policy…

            In California, there is a lot of Dem corruption at this point. The French Laundry dinners were just exemplary, with their $500/dish served by lobbyist… Reagan started by, and got away with, imposing tuition at the University of California, the world’s best university (forget Harvard!)… which had been created specifically to be free…

            I am familiar with spending in California and I do not approve much of it… which fosters apartheid (rich/ultra poor). And I am fuming because 10% of California forests just burned, including several of my prefered forests and spots. It was a long time coming. This was due entirely to DEMented policies. Don’t ask me about Republicans: I never met ONE!

      In any case, TWITTER explained its reasoning: functioning as the US secret service, they determined an armed insurrection was coming, and Trump was using TWITTER to give secret orders. They acted to denounce and prevent that, in a sort of private Big Brother monopoly (why they were created for by the financial plutocracy… and that’s why they kept on going, while losing money for a decade…). You apparently approve of this, since you denounce me for denouncing it. Did you invest in this Obama monopoly stock? 😉

      I think the demented Dems are playing a very dangerous game. The main faults in the Capitol riot were with the Capitol Police, an independent branch of government. I have studied that game many times in history: a bunch of plutocrats escalating at every turn. That’s how the Roman Republic fell. Also the French monarchy, constitutional or not.

      Last year, the demented Dems couldn’t have enough riots. Their opponents learned… Just like they are learning that impeaching presidents is the way to go. Watch for 2022… Or then what? Are they going to suspend the Constitution?

      FOX can call the demented Dems “left”… They are nothing of the sort. As a Dem I have clashes with local Dems. They biked out of their multimillion dollar mansions (I live in a high rise)… but then they make deals with promoters, plus stole 5+ millions in an ecological fund to give to themselves and girlfriends…

    Much of what is going on is “identity politics” – racial, cultural, political and economic. White against brown/black/various “others”- and when the 99% get even a little focused on the plutocracy the 1% cry class warfare! The USA is a huge country with many divisions and the American identity is in a bit of crisis mode. And the corporate media is always there to keep the flames fanned.
    The ruling elite push these divisions as far as possible as a way to keep the populace focused on these ugly distractions. Meantime, they focus on how to better keep the nation’s wealth to themselves. It is socialism for the elite and boot straps “boom and bust” capitalism for the 99 percent. Such is the effectiveness of the propaganda that people believe the government cannot afford to help them when meanwhile it lines the pockets of weapons makers, fossil fuels, Wall Street, etc.
    Trillions of dollars for endless wars yet where were the tax increases to cover it? There were none. How many nuclear subs do we need? Always more. Yet never any hand wringing over the extreme costs of this- the military budget is beyond reproach! Fearmongering with callous austerity for the general population.

      Right. Division rests on the doctrine of racialism. I always refuse to fill the “race” boxes the US government proposes me to fill…

      The government IS plutocracy, in particular, financial plutocracy. Silicon Valley has a three tiered financing system. The last tier is Wall Street. So the tech oligopolies are Wall Street creations (this is a subject I know pretty well). TWITTER for example was financed through its decade of losses because it could be used as it has been used recently. Frankly, I am surprised other countries tolerate the US plutocracy controlled social network… The only exception being China, of course…

      The US plutocratic media machinery has been very anti-French, because France has led the resistance, and is at the origin of all too much humanism…

      It is indeed socialism for the elite. The reality between Pelosi doing obsessively her crazy stuff in Washington when the outrageously disgusting homelessness is at the level it is in the Bay Area, always increasing, is just out of this world. But the former is the cover-up, inside her delirious mind, for the latter.

      Meanwhile I have a new local problem here, and if it is what it looks like (the poisoning of a forest by a particular employee of the Democratic city hall, who hates me, because of my defense of the local ecology)… Sparks are going to fly…

      NYT has occasionally reinstated me in recent years, after the hereditary change of editor (on the very day the son got the job, after thousands of censored comments of mine, one was published)… Still, indeed, they cancelled me completely for a decade (and did this to three or four of their top, most interesting commenters). It’s rather me, a subscriber, who is cancelling them, nowadays, because, aside from Trump Derangement Syndrome, they seem to have less and less to write about with any passion, let alone cogency these days…

      We have to impose laws where these social plutocratic media are not considered just private companies, but also as the public utilities they are. They have public privileges (for example the notorious section 230 for internet social media)… So they are public (at least, partly so). This is the argument I used for OPEN ACCESS OF SCIENTIFIC PAPERS. The argument is now accepted by all, and OPEN ACCESS becoming a reality.
