The control power of deep state is higher than words in capital letters on twitter.
Lots of conspiracies surround voting this time: lots of people got task to destroy millions of mail-in vote papers with Trump selected, electronic voting software designed to "glitch" to vote for Biden instead, 110+ year olds (actually dead long ago) voting for Biden, media paid to "gaslight" people, to make people think that majority truly voted for Biden, to make people give up with voting for Trump, etc.
And then there's the fact that Trump is also a paid actor, and not JFK. America's show business is truly one of a kind.
No matter the comedy, life will never get better, unless you stop watching the circus on TV and actually start with fortifying your future.

You know what's relevant? Hunter Biden's corrupt deals with China. Stealing an election insures that the Republicans will do nothing but seek revenge for the next four years. That's assuming that the massive voter fraud doesn't overturn Biden's "victory" first, of course.

Funny how conservatives hold on to that ONE thing about Biden and completely disregard all the people around Trump going to prison, the 14 lawsuits against his campaign still opened, the free pass he got for his quid pro quo with Ukraine, his taxes, the fact he is owned by Chinese banks and so many more. If you still ask yourself what Biden did in the last 47 years, I'll tell you: he didn't break the greatest country in the world.

Back on topic, yes social media should be held accountable when this impacts societies.

Shouldn't the onus be on the editors to keep the articles relevant? The article's author himself included the rather snide political statement, "Donald Trump was the, uh… inspiration… for this policy. ", and, in a rampant abuse of journalistic ethics, doesn't even attempt to address the other side of the issue. It's political commentary, not technical news.


I’m still waiting to see them reply on that point.

Will they admit they themselves are gaslighting?

I don’t mind- personally... but I do mind being called out on a response to an obviously biased opinion.

factcheck.org: trumps-wild-baseless-claims-of-illegal-voting
Accusations of fraud aside, if you get your "facts" from the Annennburg Policy Center (aka "Factcheck.org") you'll continually be misinformed. They rarely outright lie, but their omissions and distortions are unparalleled. For instance, they note that, during a court hearing on poll watcher access in Philly, the GOP attorney "admitted that poll watchers were in fact in the building" at the time of the hearing. However, they fail to mention that access was initially denied and, even after watchers were allowed inside, they were kept 30 feet away from those doing the counting, a distance that makes any meaningful observation impossible.

They also omit any mention of the "software glitch" that in one small Michigan county alone, allowed all the votes for Trump to be counted instead for Biden. The issue was found only after a local Sheriff became suspicious and investigated, and although election officials say it was simply a software problem, the fact remains that many other counties in the state use the same software.

Biden and Kamala Harris have a better record on crime than Trump does.

In fact, under Trump's presidency, I've seen horrific failures of the government to protect and defend citizen's rights.

Sure Pedo Joe and Cameltoe Harrie have great records, liberals are soft on crime, they want to let illegals roam our streets and rape and murder our children

Nobody is really being called out here. It was a reminder to discuss the news topic at hand - yes, it is clearly political in nature, but that's not the problem; nor is it a problem when people are expressing biased views on the matter.

The issue is that when comments move away from discussing the article topic (in this case, Twitter's policies), it makes it harder for other people to enter a flow of discussion about the specific content. And left unchecked, some readers take this as carte blanche to then discuss anything they wish.

For example, the two comments directly above this one have nothing to do with the news article, as they make no reference at all to Twitter, their policies concerning the moderation of a world leader's tweets, or what will happen to that person's account once they're no longer in that position.

Edit: I appreciate that this last paragraph may be interpreted as being specifically directed towards yourself and candle_86, and thus being called out. That's not the intention: they're just being used a pertinent examples.

Look, Joe. If you see rape or murder why ain’t you stopping it, it’s no point if you argue about people doing bad but seeing “illegals” on your street “rape and murder our children” when you do absolutely nothing to stop it.

Papa joe Biden will be good for America, he’ll at least tell people to be safe and not chug on bleach

Democracy failed in America. Period. The freedoms and liberties the constitution outlines, we the people are no longer worthy of and we got what we deserve. With Trump and now with Biden. America was never great although it had potential to be. That potential was gone a long time ago.
 
TWITTER WILL STOP BEING RELEVANT ONCE TRUMP LEAVES OFFICE

Tweets will no longer be 'newsworthy'


There, I fixed the headline! America is a laughing stock and not just because of Trump. Bush, Clinton, Obama, Biden??? Forgot about those family gems foisted on the world by America? It's over. America dies first, then China, then Russia, and in that order. United Nations by 2030...after the asteroid hits. Enjoy the ride, you've earned your stay with the devil and all the deathly rewards that come with him. Unfortunately America has become too ignorant to be left alive. Leader of the free world? No. Empire in decay.

Whomever ends up winning ultimately. I think both right and left should be worried about the way the media controls the narrative in this country.

Err, Biden has no record whatsoever on crime -- other than his vote for the 1994 Crime Bill, of which he is now ashamed, and continually apologizes for.

As for Kamala Harris's rampant prosecutorial abuses, those are well-documented.
This doesn't even touch on her record of dropping cases for political reasons/favors.

The fact that you're linking to a Murdoch company - the Wall Street Journal being an exception here - says enough. Rupert Murdoch is the biggest merchant of fake news and propaganda. And especially the US right is buying into it at staggering rates.
I can't, and will never believe news from Murdoch-owned companies (again except the WSJ) unless quality newspapers like Reuters or the Economist corroborate it.

Edit: removed unnecessary quote.

Regardless of the side, people should be absolutely pissed at Twitter and the likes of them that are silencing everyone they don't agree with masking it as irrelevant, fake or some other bs. In other words they are feeding you information they want you to see. They don't care about the truth yet they're acting as fact checkers while other are supposedly liars, degenerate scum like that should not be allowed to see the light of day.

I think you should familiarize yourself with this site. I understand that 70,000,000 people have been indoctrinated over the last 4 years and believe that Fox News is the only honest source, but they are, sadly, mistaken.


Also, perhaps you will believe the Associated press:

Hey guys if I want a laugh - I will head to Breibart .
It's good such a hateful manipulative person will not be protected .
I don't get it - the first second I saw him on The Apprentice - I thought BS artist.
I think Scammers like him work like badly worded Nigerian emails - they take in the easily led.
Oh look he has bling, speaks with certainty - people like that makes me want to laugh.
Same when I was at highschool - I use to get into 3 or 4 fights a year - one of my pleasures ( I haven't punch anyone now for 40 years ) - anyway I sometimes asked other kids who they thought was tough - most got it wrong - I could walk into a new school and know who was a good fighter - there might be a few hidden ones - who don't care .
Most scammers are easy to see - controlling, fast talking, answers to everything, imply special/exclusives , appeal to greed , vanity, ego etc . The absolute best we use none of these or indirectly at best - but they go after big payoff , little chance of conviction etc

The fact that you're linking to a Murdoch company [says] enough.
An excellent example of the logical fallacy known as "attacking the messenger". Nothing in that NY Post link is even in dispute -- Harris's actions as a prosecutor are a matter of public record and not open to debate. Screaming "fake news" might fly in your normal snowflake habitat, but not here.

To bring this back on topic, I point out Twitter's outrageous handling of the NY Post's series of articles on Hunter Biden's emails. Twitter first banned them under the guise that the material was from "hacked sources" (it wasn't, and Twitter has allowed numerous news articles from such sources in the past). They then claimed the story needed to be "fact checked" -- a standard they've never required for content in agreement with their political views -- and censored the story out of existence until the election was safely past. Acts like this are what will cost Twitter its Sec 230 immunity.

President Biden and VICE President Harris will be good for the country!

Nope not the president, I'd sooner spit in his face than ever refer to him as president, I've ordered a megaphone so I can go his first appearance he does in Texas and refer to him and cameltoe by their new names.

As for twitter they are irrelevant nothing but a breeding ground for communists and socialists, the platform should be banned

Also, perhaps you will believe the Associated press:
I believe them when they're truthful. Not when they lie by omission. Excluding the fact that the AP simply ignored outright the most serious issues (such as Michigans "software glitch"), let's take a few examples from your link:

" His accusation that mailed ballots without postmarks are being counted is also false. Election officials are weeding out ballots postmarked after Nov. 3. "

Officials are doing so now, after being ordered to late in the process by a federal court. However, some 450,000 previously-counted ballots were already separated from their envelopes, and those envelopes discarded, meaning the actual postmark of the ballot cannot be determined.

"Trump has portrayed the tallying of mailed ballots received after Election Day as illegitimate, but in fact that is explicitly allowed in roughly 20 states..."

Allowed in 20 states -- but illegal under Pennsylvania state law, where it was done. An omission that changes utterly the AP's "fact check" conclusion.

" One of his main complaints, that counting spilled over past Election Day, is meritless..."

Such a complaint would indeed be meritless. But that's not the complaint. The complaint is that counting of votes received after election day is being done.

"Democrats did not try to stop Republican representatives from being able to observe the process. The main issue in the case was how close observers could get to election workers who are processing mail-in ballots in Philadelphia. Trump’s representatives sued to allow the observers to get closer than the guidelines had allowed."

This omits the fact that the "guidelines" were set by Democrat officials, and consisted of a 30 foot separation, and at one point included the papering over of the glass windows between the RNC observers and those counting. It also omits at least one RNC poll watcher who was excluded entirely from a satellite polling site (election officials later claimed that was simply "a mistake".)

There are numerous other omissions and half-truths, but that's what passes for journalism these days. If nothing else, the Trump era has at least gotten many reporters to honestly admit they're more interested in pushing an agenda than in unbiased reporting.

Twitter should clarify their approach to tweets with disputed, unverified, and false claims which support their political agenda -- which is protect and even promote them, whether or not they come from public officials.
They are clarifying them. They provide references to explain why a lie is a lie.
A lie will always be a lie, no matter what your political stance is. That will never change.

In his defense, I am very shocked to see the amount of good accomplishments he implemented in his first 3.5 years. I obtained a list and checked each on whitehouse.gov.. it really proves the hate is unwarranted, and dished out by clueless dbags.
