Facebook bans "Stop the steal" content, Twitter bans 70000 Qanon accounts

No.767404 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

Facebook Inc. FB -4.01% said it is removing all content mentioning “stop the steal,” a phrase popular among supporters of President Trump’s unproven claims of election fraud, as part of a raft of measures to stem misinformation and incitements to violence on its platform ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The announcement was one of a number of new measures announced by tech giants Monday in an effort to deter further unrest after the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol last week. Twitter Inc. said it has removed more than 70,000 accounts since Friday that spread the QAnon conspiracy theory, whose followers believe Mr. Trump is under assault by Satan worshipers.

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” Twitter said in a blog post. “Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon.”

Facebook, Twitter and several other prominent technology companies—including Snap Inc., Reddit Inc. and others—already had taken steps in recent days to silence the president’s personal accounts or online communities devoted to him, citing rules prohibiting content that incites violence.

The moves followed the attack on the Capitol Wednesday by a mob of Trump supporters, who stormed the building after the president and his allies urged them to march on it as lawmakers convened inside to certify Mr. Biden’s Electoral College victory.

Biden plans on raising taxes in 2/3rds of Americans.

No.770384 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Biden wants to repeal or let sunset the Trump tax cuts, which according to the nyt gave a tax cut to 2/3rds of all Americans. In 2020 my paycheck taxes plus property tax were already 23%!!!! And that is before adding sale tax, gas tax, car tax, road tolls, Pittman–Robertson tax, ect. Why is the middle class expected to pay a quarter of their income into taxes? Why does Biden want to raise taxes on the middle class so badly? Seriously, taxed enough already.

FBI Suspects Foreign Instigators Responsible for Capital Attack

No.772759 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The FBI is reportedly investigating if foreign actors funded some of the rioters who breached the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, one current and one former FBI official told NBC News.

The agency is investigating whether foreign governments, organizations or individuals provided funding to those who helped plan the riot, according to the news outlet. As part of the probe, the agency is reportedly examining payments of $500,000 in bitcoin by a French computer programmer before the riot.

The French computer programmer died by suicide shortly after transferring the cryptocurrency, according to french media, NBC News reports.

Yahoo News first highlighted the bitcoin payments on Thursday. The story was then reported by analysis company Chainanalysis.

On Dec. 8, 28.15 BTC, which was worth $522,000 at the time of transfer, was sent to 22 different virtual wallets, many of which belonged to far-right activists, according to the report.

Most of the money went to far-right podcaster Nick Fuentes, who received 13.5 BTC, according to Chainanalysis’s report, which is worth about $250,000.

Fuentes told ProPublica that he was at the rally but didn’t enter the Capitol with the mob, NBC noted.

Separately, the FBI issued a bulletin earlier this week, with the Department of Homeland Security warning that Russian, Iranian and Chinese influence actors have “seized the opportunity to amplify narratives in furtherance of their policy interest amid the presidential transition,” according to NBC.

The FBI declined to comment.

House to impeach the Traitor Trump for his failed coup to overthrow the US Government

America and Democracy vs Trump and Fascism
What side are you on?

House Democrats on Monday introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump for inciting a mob that attacked the Capitol last week, vowing to press the charge as Republicans blocked a separate move to formally call on Vice President Mike Pence to strip him of power under the 25th Amendment.

The dual actions came as Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her caucus sought to ratchet up pressure on Mr. Pence to intervene and push Mr. Trump to resign. If they did not, the Democrats promised immediate consequences for Mr. Trump’s role in an attack that put the lives of the vice president, members of Congress and thousands of staff working on Capitol Hill at risk as officials met to formalize President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory.

“The president’s threat to America is urgent, and so too will be our action,” Ms. Pelosi said on Monday.

As expected, Republicans objected to a resolution calling on Mr. Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, meaning that the House would have to call a full vote on the measure, most likely on Tuesday. Democratic leaders were confident it would pass, and pressured Republican lawmakers to vote with them to beseech the vice president, who is said to be opposed to using the powers outlined in the Constitution, to do so.

It was a remarkable threat. If Mr. Pence does not intervene “within 24 hours” after passage and the president does not resign, House leaders said they would move on Wednesday to consider the impeachment resolution on the floor, just a week after the attack. Already more than 210 Democrats have signed onto the leading charge, just shy of a majority of the House. Several Republicans were said to be considering voting to impeach for the first time, though party leaders were opposed.

Israeli human rights organization declares Israel an apartheid state

No.772792 ViewReplyOriginalReport
B’Tselem, one of Israel’s foremost human rights organisations, has issued a report stating that Israel is not a democracy but an “apartheid regime” that enforces Jewish supremacy over the Palestinians in all the land it controls.

It confirms not only what critics of Israel’s brutal suppression of the Palestinians have long been saying, but also the historic bankruptcy and reactionary culmination of the Zionist project and all such nationalist programs.

In the 1967 War, Israel seized the West Bank and East Jerusalem, previously under Jordanian rule, and Gaza, previously administered by Egypt and under blockade by Israel since 2007. Collectively they are home to more than five million Palestinians.

Within Israel, there are approximately 2 million citizens of Palestinian origin, one fifth of the total population, meaning that Palestinians from around half of the population in the lands controlled by Israel. All these four Palestinian groups have different rights from each other that are all inferior to those of Jewish Israelis living in the same areas (except for Gaza where there are no Israeli settlements).

As B’Tselem points out, “the entire area between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River is organized under a single principle: advancing and cementing the supremacy of one group—Jews—over another—Palestinians.”

B’Tselem’s report, “A regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is apartheid,” argues, “By geographically, demographically and physically engineering space, the regime enables Jews to live in a contiguous area with full rights, including self-determination, while Palestinians live in separate units and enjoy fewer rights. This qualifies as an apartheid regime, although Israel is commonly viewed as a democracy upholding a temporary occupation.”
