Being Right on the Net

Google, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, Kickstarter, etc., etc., etc.  The internet giants will be doing everything in their power to shut down the opposition to Dementia Joe.  They will de-platform, ban and demonetize everyone on the right they can think of.

Will this work?  No, not really.  What it will do is change the basis of how things will work going forward.  Conservatives won’t be able to free ride on the social network platforms and monetize their popularity through Google’s monolithic stranglehold on the flow of information and internet advertising.  The Right will be forced to set themselves up as Mom-and-Pop shops doing their advertising in places like Parler and Gab.  Well, so what?  That’s probably a good idea.  Being under the thumb of the Tech Giants means having to pass their ever more biased speech codes until you’d end up either sounding exactly like the Left or completely silent.

The harder challenge will be the banks and credit companies.  PayPal and some of the other e-commerce payment processors have also been cancelling out the accounts of people whose politics they don’t approve of.  The last I heard there are some alternate processors who will serve instead.  There are probably problems associated with the alternatives but right now those are the breaks.  It can be expected that the Left will continue to put pressure on these alternate providers to close ranks to try to starve out the Right.  And for that reason, in the future it should be a priority of any organized front on the Right to build up financial platforms of our own to protect us from the Left’s blockade actions.

Up until now I haven’t monetized my site at all.  I really want to find out if I have anything worth selling.  But I have noticed a few folks making the first moves to putting in paywalls around some content and accepting a few reasonable ads on their sites.  I like what the ZMan is doing.  He gives a plug for businesses that are owned by conservatives.  That makes a lot of sense.  We’re going to have to have a lot more of exactly that.

And I’ve been threatening to finish a book I’ve been working on for months.  Well, the excitement of the last couple of months has set me back at least that long but one day I’ll be peddling my opus magnum and I’ll have to decide whether I will use Amazon exclusively or try some other venue.  Maybe I’ll even have a store of my own.  We’ll see.

But the thing about all this is that it would go a lot faster and easier if we had a billionaire who had the wherewithal to set something up that catered to us.  A combination Facebook, YouTube, PayPal and Kickstarter just for the Right.  No more deplatforming, no more banning no more doxxing.  Basically, a place of our own.  And meanwhile the billionaire would make money hand over fist doing it.  Think of the merchandising and other opportunities available from having almost a monopoly over about 150 million Americans.  Now that really is worth the trouble of setting up.

If you’re reading this Mr. President think about it.  Building that would feel like a revolution all by itself.

Here’s some links for web hosting for conservatives and social media for us.

Congress Certifies the Election.  Where Do We Go from Here?

So, it’s official.  Mike Pence uselessly officiated at the vote count and only a handful of senators had the backbone to put up even a token resistance; Cruz, Hawley and a few others.  So, everyone including President Trump has agreed that “Dementia Joe” Biden will be hauled into the White House and nailed up like a scarecrow while his handlers pull his strings and make his progressively addled mouth and brain parrot whatever teleprompted gibberish they want him to spew on any particular day.

Yesterday’s street theater was either the beginning of a rebellion against a fraudulent presidency or the death spasm of a free people.  Time will tell.  The juxtaposition of the media’s portrayal of yesterday’s protest versus the obscene “summer of Floyd” rioting and looting is so ludicrous as to defy description.  Ashli Babbitt, who was murdered yesterday, is such a stark contrast to all of the “victims” that were endlessly celebrated in the summer of Floyd that nothing else is needed to highlight what the two sides stand for.  The left holds up criminals and degenerates as saints and martyrs while decent patriotic Americans are branded with every slur imaginable.

So, as predicted, they stole the Georgia senate elections and now control the Senate, the House, the White House and effectively the Supreme Court.  Technically we have a 6-3 majority there but apparently Roberts and one or two of the new boys are under the Left’s thumb.  They can write any laws they want and the Supreme Court will back them to the hilt.  They control the social media completely and through Google and Amazon they control access to the internet and e-commerce.  They control the banks and they control Wall Street.  They control the bureaucracy, the intelligence apparatus, the Justice Department, the IRS and even the military.  They control the schools, the colleges and the press.  To say that they have us by the throat is an understatement of biblical proportions.  Even this tiny one-man show of mine isn’t too small for them to shut down when they get around to dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on their program of eliminating the dissenters.  That’s the beauty of the server farms that Google had the government buy for them.  They can write an algorithm that counts up every last syllable of dissent and just cancels it out of existence.

And coming around to the title, where do we go from here?  Well, from my point of view, we stop waiting for a man on a white horse and we become the answer we’re waiting for.  We’re embedded in a matrix of lies, stupidity and degeneracy.  We have to develop defenses to protect our children from the corrosive effects of these poisons.  They’re too young to understand the lies.  As for adults that believe this stuff, they’re probably hopeless and need to be avoided as much as is possible in our private lives.

I can’t assume there are enough brave men left in this country to organize a rebellion.  We’re all too hamstrung by our dependence on all the government systems that control every aspect of our lives.  Everything from the money in our bank accounts to the cops on our streets are controlled by the other side.  If a rebellion occurs then I’ll join it.  But I see my place as providing information for the people on our side and a place where we can talk and discuss the events of the day.  I’ll give my opinions and pass along any links to others who are trying to organize cultural and commercial endeavors that help our side in some way.  In my personal life I will work to form a local community of like-minded individuals.  That is something we all should do.  Linking those local groups together would be something for a social network to accomplish.  What that network will be is still a question mark.

I will make it a special part of my time to think up humiliating and I hope amusing insults to use for Dementia Joe, his underlings and their pathetic antics.  You have to do something to amuse yourself while waiting for the execution.

So that’s it.  Until someone raises an armored division we are officially under the permanent control of Big Brother here in Oceania.  2 + 2 = 5.

Conservative Treehouse Will Be De-Platformed by Word Press

I have great sympathy for these guys as they go through the massive headache of switching platforms.  Sundance has a nice site that links to lots of good stuff.

The Treehouse is Deplatformed…

He’s got a large readership and that was bound to make him a target for the Leftists who want to silence all dissent.  I guess we all really are dissidents now.  Our heresy is we don’t want to be slaves.

 

Is a Million Dollars a Tweet Too Much?

The Senate is debating whether they should remove the Section 230 protection from the internet.  No, I would leave that status available to sites that warrant it.  What I would do is specifically prosecute Twitter, Facebook and Google for violating the equal protection rights of their users.  These companies run actual monopolies for the services they provide.  And the users who have political or social positions that do not align with those of the management of Twitter, Facebook and Google are being treated differently from everyone else based on these political and social opinions.

And to those who give the lame argument that Google, Facebook and Twitter are for profit companies and would never do something that was against their financial interests like disrespecting a large proportion of their user base, I’d say well let’s find out.  How about fining these companies a million bucks each time they delete a tweet or shadow ban a post?  Or how about a billion dollars when they de-platform a conservative channel for a supposed offense that isn’t actually illegal?  That would be a real test.  For that kind of money even I’d create a YouTube channel and try to get them to de-platform me.

No, forget all that.  These tech giants are an existential threat to all of us.  Declaring each of them a monopoly and crippling them is a better idea.  I’d have one of the judges that isn’t against us carve these creeps into little tiny pieces.  Or how about nationalize them.  Turn them into a utility that is heavily regulated by the government just like the phone companies are.  And that will allow us to rein in some of their worse excesses like harvesting our data and spying on us.  And anyone complaining about content would have to get a lawyer and try to sue in court to have content removed.

Of course, the much-vaunted algorithms would need to be opened up and exposed to the light of day.  All of the built-in bias against conservatives and Republicans would be there to see.  Can you imagine how great it would be to see a search on Donald Trump not have the top results be CNN and MSNBC?  It would be a revelation.

Let’s face it.  If you make money through e-commerce being banned by Facebook and Google is devastating.  It’s like what would have happened fifty years ago if AT&T would have been allowed to prevent someone from having a telephone line based on their political or religious affiliations.  It’s as if today the interstate highways could be closed to you just because you called the Bidens a treasonous crime family.  It would be as if the television and cable channels were allowed to restrict campaign ads based on which candidate they favored.  Oh, wait a minute, forget that last one.  They’re actually doing it now.

And finally, I want this done because I know that both the President and I would spend at least a month crowing about it on the internet.  I would celebrate by going on all three platforms and mocking the management relentlessly.  I would welcome back all the re-platformed right-wingers and perform virtual victory dances in the most obnoxious and annoying ways I can think of.  And I’m sure the President will do the same.  So please President Trump, get the Justice department on the hop.  Make this a priority and makes these bastards sweat like they’ve done to countless people on the Right.  Here’s another great Christmas present for all of us.  Even before they get carved up make them stop the abuse.  Beat them like an army mule and make them say uncle and then beat’em again just for good measure.

The Silicon Valley Monopolies Must be Splintered and Wrenched Away from the SJWs

Back in 1982 the United States federal government decreed that American Telephone and Telegraph Company was a destructive monopoly and for the good of the country needed to be dismembered.  Their sin was that they were so big and successful that no other company would ever be able to successfully compete against them.  Now AT&T was a heavily regulated company and was controlled by a network of government regulations about how they did business and how they had to treat the American public.  In many places phone service was treated as an entitlement that not even non-payment by the consumer justified AT&T disconnecting the service.  And in the hundred plus years of service AT&T never once asked what the consumer’s politics, ethics or even criminal activities were.  They just wanted you to pay the bill every month.

In 2019 Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon are the phone company.  We talk to each other and sell things to each other and organize with each other over their networks.  And they are more than the phone company.  They are now also the equivalent of the newspapers, television networks, radio stations, movie theaters and more.  Now Amazon has become Sears and Kmart and even the grocery store, the hardware store, the bookstore, the drug store, the music store, the electronics store, the shoe store, the clothes store and almost every other retail establishment that has ever existed.  Other than a few megastores like Walmart and Home Depot no one can compete with Amazon.  The shopping malls and retail streets of every city and town in America have been emptied and shuttered by this business behemoth.

These companies are the very definition of monopolies that the anti-trust laws were written to guard against.  They cry out for some kind of action.  And if they had no other agenda than to make money by the tera-buck they would need to be busted up.  But that’s actually the smaller problem.

The real problem is that they have taken sides in the culture war and have indeed formed an overarching conspiracy to crush anyone and everyone who disagrees with their radical progressive agenda.  And their monolithic control allows them to banish anyone they disagree with from access to the audience needed to communicate, organize and resist the progressive narrative.  And even that’s not the worst of it.

They have joined forces with corporate America to literally destroy the lives and livelihoods of those they dislike.  With the help of social justice warriors on-line they can get a man fired from his job, SWAT-ed by the local police, have his guns confiscated, ejected from his bank and deplatformed from his own web-business.  So far, they haven’t been able literally throw you into a gulag but I’m sure they’re working on it as we speak.

So, imagine if back in the day AT&T or the local electric company or gas company had sent you a letter that said that because they didn’t like your politics or things you said they were turning off your service.  How long would it be before the Feds put the screws to that utility company and fined them until they desisted from discriminating against American citizens?

The Anti-Trust Division of the Department of Justice works for William Barr.  Barr works for President Trump and he works for me because I voted for him.  I want President Trump to tell Barr to take Amazon and bust it into a thousand pieces.  I want him to cut off all federal funds to Facebook, Google and Twitter and then fine those lousy cretins into bancruptcy for discriminating against non-progressives of all stripes.  I want him to investigate Pay Pal, Stripe, Wells Fargo, Chase Manhattan and any other financial institution that deplatformed any non-progressive businessmen just because they don’t like their politics or religious beliefs.

Sure, there are plenty of other things that the President needs to do but these things will strengthen his supporters, weaken his enemies, take money away from the Leftists and besides everything else it’s easy to do because it’s exactly what the law tells him he should do.  It’s low hanging fruit and it’s a no-brainer.  And besides everything else it will be fun.

So, do it!

Larry Correia and the Facebook Trolls

Larry is the author of some very fun urban and high fantasy (e. g., the Monster Hunter books) and the man who originated the Sad Puppy insurgency.  Because of the latter, the whole science fiction SJW troop hates him with a burning passion.  So every now and then they erupt in a spasm of spite.  So they’ve been messing with his Facebook page by reporting imaginary violations.  Larry, being the imaginative type came up with a game to mock this harassment and, of course, was banned again for the imaginary stuff too.  It’s kind of complicated but if you’ve following the Sad Puppy saga for as long as I have you might get a chuckle.

 

“Long live Krasnovia!

 

Banned Again. Facebook Gets Even Dumber, Part III: The Saga Continues

 

 

Apparently Even Knitting is Political

Here’s an article on the Federalist that informs us that the biggest knitting and crocheting website won’t allow Trump supporters to just get along.

https://thefederalist.com/2019/06/25/tech-bias-became-kitchen-table-issue/

The author reminds us that those pink hats that the old ladies wore to protest President Trump had to be made somewhere.  Sounds like an opportunity for a new platform.

Vox Day Has a Post on Creators Working Around Demonitizing by YouTube

Vox links to an article on the Verge lamenting that YouTube demonitizing someone like Steven Crowder didn’t do much damage to his business.

https://voxday.blogspot.com/2019/06/sjws-lament-failure-of-demonetization.html

In the comments I found a link to an alternative to PayPal and other payment processors who have denied service to gun merchants and othe deplorables.

Finding alternatives to converged institutions is a real problem for people on the right doing business.

Vox Day Links to an Article About an Australian Rugby Star Fired for His Religious Beliefs

Israel Folau was a star of the Australian Rugby league.  But his comments about his christian beliefs on homosexuality got him fired from his team and when he set up a crowdfunding effort to contest the firing in court, GoFundMe cancelled the account after it received over $500,000.

https://voxday.blogspot.com/2019/06/deplatforming-christian-morality.html

Folau is a Polynesian (Tongan) raised in a christian family and his biblical beliefs about the immorality of abnormal sexual practices have clashed with the LGBTQ mafia that more and more ruthlessly attempts to silence any voices that won’t burn a pinch of incense to the Caesar of our time.  Kudos to Vox for highlighting this story from “Down Under.”
