BOMBSHELL: Apple demands Natural News stop writing about abortions or Satanism; threatens to block Natural News app from all Apple devices

By 

In a series of shocking “demand” emails containing screen captures showing lists of Natural News articles, Apple has demanded Natural News stop publishing articles critical of abortions or Satanism, threatening to block the Natural News app from all Apple devices if Apple’s demands are not met.

This is the first time that a dominant tech company has overtly come out in defense of Satanism while threatening to censor a prominent publisher that exposes the evils of Satanic influence. Many people will see this as yet more proof that Apple, along with other tech giants, is literally aligned with Satan and is exploiting its power of censorship to silence those who criticize Satanism.

With Democrats now openly pushing infanticide and the legalization of the serial killing of infants, tech giants like Apple are serving as the censorship “speech police” to silence all criticism of the gruesome practice. In threatening Natural News over our coverage of infanticide and abortions, Apple is staking out the position of being pro-infanticide, and anyone who dares to speak up for innocent children is deemed by Apple to be engaged in “hate speech.” Read the rest of this entry »

Zero Transparency: 6 Questions that Tech Giants Refuse to Answer About the InfoWars Ban | Breitbart

Posted by M. C. on August 8, 2018

by Allum Bokhari

…But Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube have offered, at most, only copy and paste explanations for why they banned InfoWars content from their platforms — or why, after months of pressure from the Democrats and CNN, they all came to the same decision on the same day. Questions about transparency have a much broader scope that just the case of InfoWars and Alex Jones. Beyond the banning of other individuals such as Tommy Robinson, the same questions apply to a whole host of actions by the Masters of the Universe, including partnering with foreign governments to shut down accounts, shadowbanning users to limit the scope of their engagement, and mass user purges.

Breitbart News sent the following questions to Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple earlier today, and have yet to receive a real answer for most of them. Apple and YouTube chose to provide the same canned statement they provided to all other media outlets who contacted them, while Facebook and Spotify ignored our request entirely.

Alex Jones and the rise of corporate censorship | Free speech | spiked

Posted by M. C. on August 8, 2018

We live in strange times. On one hand it is fashionable to hate capitalism these days… But on the other hand we seem content to trust Silicon Valley, the new frontier in corporate power, to make moral judgements about what kind of content people should be able to see online.

http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/alex-jones-and-the-rise-of-corporate-censorship/21658#.W2npJtIzaUm

So we’re now trusting the capitalist class, massive, unaccountable corporations, to decide on our behalf what we may listen to and talk about? This is the take-home message, the terrible take-home message, of the expulsion of Alex Jones’ Infowars network from Apple, Facebook and Spotify and of the wild whoops of delight that this summary banning generated among so-called liberals: that people are now okay with allowing global capitalism to govern the public sphere and to decree what is sayable and what is unsayable. Corporate censorship, liberals’ new favourite thing – how bizarre. Read the rest of this entry »

Apple, Facebook and other tech companies delete content from Alex Jones

Posted by M. C. on August 7, 2018

Executives defend the decision not to share exactly what content violated a policy because they fear it will prompt people to test it.

Alex Jones as Josef K.

By Washington Post

Major technology companies including Apple, Facebook and YouTube deleted years of content from conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars platforms over allegations of hate speech, a sudden clampdown that is fueling the growing debate over how big technology companies choose to censor…

The recent actions by the technology companies also highlight the opaque nature of their decision-making, with most not publicly specifying what content by Jones violated their policies or how they decided what posts to block and which to leave online. Jones has treaded close to some definitions of hate speech for years, and it wasn’t clear from the companies if or when he finally crossed the line… Read the rest of this entry »

InfoWars Ban: CNN, Democrats Successfully Lobby Big Tech to Censor Their Critics | Breitbart

Posted by M. C. on August 7, 2018

It seems that YouTube has now come up with a solution: ban the channels that Rep. Deutch objects to.

Scoundrel Alex Jones deserves more respect than any other organization mentioned below. At least he tells you there is a war on the truth.

by Allum Bokhari

Big tech’s coordinated purge of InfoWars — which was hit by bans from Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube in rapid succession — did not occur in a vacuum. On this issue, Silicon Valley bowed to CNN journalists and Democrat politicians who ceaselessly lobbied for the site to be censored.

It’s a sign of how the concentration of power in America has shifted from big government to big tech that politicians are now lobbying tech companies rather than the other way round, but that’s exactly what happened over the course of the past few months, as Democrats applied relentless pressure on Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants to censor InfoWars.

Chief among them was Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL), who demanded that a Facebook representative “explain” their decision not to ban InfoWars at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on social media censorship last month. Calling Jones as “well-known conspiracy theorist” whose “brand is bullying,” Deutch also demanded Google’s representative explain how many strikes it would take for a channel on Google-owned YouTube to be deleted… Read the rest of this entry »

10 Social Media Networks to Use Instead of Facebook

Posted by M. C. on March 28, 2018

Worth looking into if you like “that sort of thing”.

http://theantimedia.com/10-social-media-networks-instead-facebook/

Written by 

(ANTIMEDIA) — The salient facts of the new Cambridge Analytica scandal are bad, and the optics are even worse for Facebook, which is already facing multiple battles both in legal courts and the court of public opinion. But this really is just the spilled pot of a long-boiling problem: growing discomfort within our citizen-consumer class over predatory data mining and the unaccountable shadow agencies and corporations being given access to our private lives via social networks. Big Brother has been privatized, and it may turn out to be far more dangerous than anything George Orwell predicted.

Typically, Facebook has been able to duck, dodge, juke, and jive its way out of such entanglements because of the sheer ubiquity of social media in our daily lives, the market value of the company, and its ability to manipulate public opinion. But this time is different. The company hit the politicized buzzsaw of the 2016 election, which is still grinding and sparking from accusations concerning the use of Facebook to spread propaganda (which in reality, of course, is nothing new). In other words, “Facebook’ is appearing in more and more paragraphs containing “Russia,” and in today’s climate, that is worse than a decade of privacy violations. Read the rest of this entry »

Paradise Papers reveal how Apple moved untaxed cash reserve from Ireland to Jersey

Posted by M. C. on November 6, 2017

Europe’s liberals and the queen of a country synonymous with crushing taxes want to raise your taxes but make sure they come smelling like roses.

https://www.rte.ie/news/2017/1106/917722-paradise-papers/

The leaked papers reportedly reveal that Bono, under his real name Paul Hewson, was an investor in the Maltese company Nude Estates, which bought the shopping centre.

A spokesperson for the singer said that Bono was a “passive, minority investor in Nude Estates Malta Ltd, a company that was legally registered in Malta until it was voluntarily wound up in 2015”. Read the rest of this entry »

It won’t bother the majority (sheeple), less for them to have to think about. Assuming they think about privacy. Assuming they think.

Your facial scan WILL make it to the net.  It WILL be added to all of your CIA, NSA, Google, Facebook, credit card company, IRS, et al dossiers.

Might as well update your Facebook photo too. TAG! Your It! Read the rest of this entry »

Fake news is killing people’s minds, says Apple boss Tim Cook

In some ways kids will be the easiest to educate. 
Don’t like the sound of that! Especially if he wants government to do the fixing.

Tim Cook knows better than to think government can fix anything. There must be a worm in his Apple.

FBI Turn On – Your Phone’s Camera and Mic.

Posted by M. C. on March 10, 2016

From the Guardian

If the FBI wins in its case against Apple to help it unlock the San Bernardino killer’s iPhone 5C, it won’t be long before the government forces Apple to turn on users’ iPhone cameras and microphones to spy on them, according to the company’s head of services Eddy Cue.

This is merely the next logical step.  The sheeple will be surprised.  We aren’t.

Be seeing you
