YouTube bans the President

The most spectacular deplatforming cascade in the history of social media cyberpurges continues with YouTube:

YouTube has announced that it pulled new content from US President Donald Trump’s verified channel and blocked it from uploading new videos for at least a week, citing violations of its policy against inciting violence.

In a statement late on Tuesday, YouTube said that the Trump channel was issued a strike over unspecified “new content,” and pursuant to its long-standing policy, “is now prevented from uploading new videos or live streams for a minimum of seven days.”

The video-sharing platform, which was the only major social medium still carrying Trump’s message after the president was purged from both Twitter and Facebook, did not rule out the possibility of the week-long ban being extended further.

Comments under all videos on Trump’s channel have been suspended “indefinitely,” YouTube said, noting that this was a standard practice for the cases “involving safety concerns.”

The ban did not quite come out of the blue. Earlier on Tuesday, an umbrella group of civil rights organizations vowed to pressure YouTube advertisers to drop the platform if it fails to follow Twitter and Facebook’s suit in blocking Trump’s accounts.

That’s a bold move, Cotton. We’ll see how it turns out for them. 


Evil doesn’t care about hypocrisy

If you don’t understand that yet, perhaps Twitter’s brave and stunning stance against election-related censorship will suffice to make it clear to you.

Twitter is openly condemning internet service providers blocking social media apps in the run-up to an election in Uganda as it takes criticism for alleged censorship on its own platform.

“Ahead of the Ugandan election, we’re hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps,” the social media giant posted in a statement on Tuesday.

“We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet,” the statement continued.

The company argued that “access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.”

Every country should simply ban Twitter. And if you’re on Twitter, get off it now. The Big Tech companies are exactly like Freddie Krueger. They have no power over you if you refuse to acknowledge their existence.

I was talking yesterday to someone about the idiocy of the Cult of Free. It’s astonishing that so many people are still reluctant to give up Twitter, Facebook, and other free social media, when they now know, beyond any shadow of the doubt, that the cost of using their “free” applications can very easily be your job and even your career. 


All Parler’s data are belong to them

Using Parler was a massive, massive mistake. When are conservatives going to learn to stop trusting their gatekeepers? Handing over your telephone and drivers license to someone who can’t protect your data just because they let you use their site for free is sheer idiocy.

A group of developers latched onto the Press Release that Twilio put out at midnight last night. In that Press Release, Twilio accidentally revealed which services Parler was using. Turns out it was all of the security authentications that were used to register a user. This allowed anyone to create a user, and not have to verify an email address, and immediately have a logged-on account.

Well, because of that access, it gave them access to the behind the login box API that is used to deliver content — ALL CONTENT (parleys, video, images, user profiles, user information, etc) –. But what it also did was revealed which USERS had “Administration” rights, “Moderation” rights.

Well, then what happened, those user accounts that had Administration rights to the entire platform… The hackers, internet warriors, call it what you will, was able to use the forgot password link to change the password. Why? Because Twilio was no longer authenticating emails. This meant, they’d get directly to the reset password screen of that Administration user.

This group of Internet Warriors then used that account, to create a handful of other ADMINISTRATION accounts, and then created a script that ended up creating MILLIONS of fake administration accounts.

Now that they had a way of creating admin accounts without interruption, they created a Docker Image (basically a virtual machine) called a Warrior, that anyone could download, and when fired up, would immediately start collecting data off of Parler, in a coordinated fashion.

Consider it like SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) that people used to load up as screen savers when their computers were not being used. Same concept, crowdsourcing.

All of this data, the videos, the images, the posts, the metadata (including the GEO location of all images and videos, and the connections to the accounts that posted it, has been (since midnight) being uploaded to various cloud drives and storage arrays for the purposes of Archiving this information, for later retrieval by law enforcement, by the public, by Open Source Intelligence communities.

And the kicker.. is this: all of this information was thought to be secure and private by individuals who were making the posts. A significant number of those individuals went through the process of being a “Verified Citizen” on Parler. What does that mean?

It means they uploaded a picture of the front and back of their REAL State Driver’s License…….. Let that sink in for a second.

I am positive the FBI has been actively soaking in this information along with the Internet Warriors, but this is how they are going to officially track down. And it’s how the FBI, DHS, and FAA have been able to immediately and exhaustively create no-fly lists. Every verified attendee of the Capitol riot where they can find a real name has been placed on No-Fly Lists.

It might seem like a small geeky glitch or hack.. but in the age of Information warfare… this is the silver bullet for the people who used Parler as a place to organize their efforts. Also, a lot of posts were deleted by Parler members after the riots on the 6th. Turned out… Parler didn’t actually delete anything.. just set a bit as deleted.

Guess what has access to all “deleted” content?

Administrator accounts.

And this is why breaking yourself of your addiction to the Cult of Free is vital. Due to their business model, sooner or later, they are going to need to sell your data. That’s why they hold onto it even when they claim to respect your data privacy. If they actually did, they wouldn’t hold onto it in the first place.


Of all the words of screen and pen

The saddest are these: Vox was right again. The Other McCain muses on The Night of the Digital Long Knives:

I don’t think anyone except the Silicon Valley oligarchs, who no doubt had this planned well in advance, and Vox Day, who had expected this for some time – expected the whole sale purging of conservative & populist accounts from social media that’s taken place this week….

People used to accuse Vox Day of being paranoid when he said these things a few years ago. What’s keeping me awake nights is that Vox might not have been paranoid enough.

More is coming. Don’t be complacent. Don’t wait around on ground you have no intention of defending. Don’t give up any ground you intend to keep without being the hard out. And above all, support the alternative platforms. Because if you don’t, there won’t be anything left for you. Don’t kid yourself, the SJW corpocracy knows everything about who you are, they know that you are not on their side, and they have absolutely no intention of sparing you or permitting you to submit in the future.

You can join SocialGalactic in two ways, either by subscribing to Unauthorized or by subscribing to it directly.

I held out from subscribing to Unauthorized.tv for a long time but when you added Razorfist to the lineup, it was impossible to continue making any more excuses for a measly $5 a month. Thank you! To Owen, Razorfist, Rachel, Wranglerstar, the Dread Ilk and the rest of the gang, thank you for the lasting work you are doing. History will remember your efforts to shine a light against the darkness.


Never trust the gatekeepers

You may recall that I told you Parler was never a viable option to Twitter. But John Matze tries to convince conservatives who were dumb enough to be taken in by an obvious trap that he wasn’t in on the shutdown.

Sunday at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.

We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies.

This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.

First, Matze is a shameless liar. Parler doesn’t support free speech at all. Even Gab, which is run by a genuine free speech believer, no longer supports completely free speech due to its actual experience with it. Second, the fact that Parler used AWS as the foundation of its platform makes it obvious that, at the very least, Parler believed that it was safely on the side of the SJWs.

And third, never, ever, trust a tech company that comes out of nowhere with massive resources and gets tremendous media coverage. Unless it is something genuinely groundbreaking – and a Twitter clone is the exact opposite of that – it’s being pushed by the ticketmasters of the corpocracy. Parler isn’t an true alternative to Twitter, it’s just an offshoot designed to corral those who escape from it.

For a genuine alternative to Twitter, join SG. Or, if you still haven’t weaned yourself from the cult of free technology yet, get on Gab.

UPDATE: Speaking of not trusting the gatekeepers, the account posting as @realCodeMonkeyZ at Parler is a fake. Do not trust anything that is posted at Parler by anyone.

It has come to my attention that another Parler account is posing as me and publishing information in my name. That account is NOT MINE. I do not have a Parler account and never will. I am ONLY on Gab verified as @codemonkey


Fire Firefox

I switched from Firefox to Brave long ago. If you haven’t stopped using Firefox yet, it’s time to do so, because Mozilla has gone beyond mere SJW convergence to full sociofascist superconvergence:

Mozilla, developer of the Firefox internet browser, has argued that more must be done to keep Donald Trump and other “bad actors” out of cyberspace, prompting many to vow to never use the group’s services again.

In a blog post titled ‘We need more than deplatforming’, the open-source software community said that Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Trump from its platform didn’t go far enough in weeding out “hate” on the internet. While blaming Trump for the “siege and take-over” of the US Capitol on January 6, the non-profit tech group argued that “white supremacy is about more than any one personality.”

“We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done. Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms,” Mozilla wrote.

The group proposed a number of measures to help protect the internet from verboten views. Internet ads should list who paid for them, how much they are paying, and who is being targeted, Mozilla said. There should also be “meaningful transparency” of platform algorithms so that people can examine what kind of content is being promoted. 

The group also demanded that “tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation” are added to the default settings of internet platforms, and said that independent research must be carried out to determine how social media is affecting society and what can be done to “improve things.”

The blog post concluded by stating that the answer to Trump and other allegedly bad voices was not to “do away with the internet,” but rather to “build a better one” that can “withstand” such “challenges.”

Stop supporting those who hate you. More importantly, stop relying upon them. 


The Italian affadavit

One word of caution. I have not been able to find any mention of a connection to the US election in the Italian media yet, but I have been able to confirm the existence of the lawyer mentioned as well as the cyberattack on Leonardo SpA that resulted in the arrest of Arturo D’Elia on December 6th in Napoli.

GENERAL AFFIDAVIT

Region of Lazio

Country of Italy

I, Prof Alfio D’Urso, Advocate/Lawyer, of Via Vittorio Emanuele, Catania, 95131 Italy, do hereby provide the following affidavit of facts as conveyed in several meetings with a high level army security services official:

Arturo D’Elia, former head of the IT Department of Leonardo SpA, has been charged by the public prosecutor of Naples for technology/data manipulation and implantation of viruses in the main computers of Leonardo SpA in December 2020. D’Elia has been deposed by the presiding judge in Naples and in sworn testimony states on 4 November 2020, under instruction and direction of US persons working from the US Embassy in Rome, undertook the operation to switch data from the US elections of 3 November 2020 from significant margin of victory for Donald Trump to Joe Biden in a number of states where Joe Biden was losing the vote totals. Defendant stated he was working in the Pescara facility of Leonardo SpA and utilized military grade cyber warfare encryption capabilities to transmit switched votes via military satellite of Fucino Tower to Frankfurt Germany. The defendant swears that the data in some cases may have been switched to represent more than total voters registered. The defendant has stated he is willing to testify to all individuals and entities involved in the switching of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden when he shall be in total protection for himself and his family. Defendant states he has secured in an undisclosed location the backup of the original data and data switched upon instruction to provide evidence at court in this matter.

I hereby declare and swear the above stated facts have been stated in my presence.

Dated this 6th day of January 2021 at Rome, Italy.


RED1 Go

Mark Zuckerberg personally bans the President of the United States from Facebook:

The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.

His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.

Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.

Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

Remember, Twitter never actually bans anyone. They just suspend their users indefinitely. And I can testify from personal experience. And in other news, Shopify just deplatformed the President.

And now we’re waiting for RED2. Which may, or may not, be related to today’s FCC announcement.

The FCC’s Enforcement Bureau today issued an advisory to remind Emergency Alert System participants of their compliance obligations, including ensuring that alerts are accessible to people with disabilities

Google workers unionize

I think we can be confident that we’ve passed the point of peak Google:

Hundreds of engineers and other workers announced the formation of Google’s first union on Monday, ostensibly to provide more structure to ongoing employee activism at the company rather than pursue traditional union goals.

Dubbed the ‘Alphabet Workers Union’ after Google’s parent company, the union is composed of hundreds of staff out of Alphabet’s reported 132,000 employees but could mark a major sea change within Silicon Valley, which has long resisted unionization efforts. 

“This is historic – the first union at a major tech company by and for all tech workers,” Dylan Baker, a software engineer at Google, said in a statement. 

This should present some interesting opportunities as well as providing for some quality entertainment. Silicon Valley is already dysfunctional, so a few SJW-driven unions should help multiply the chaos.


Live fraud demo in GA

 The technological foundation of the election fraud is being demonstrated to the GA Senate:

@JovanHPulitzer just now hacked into a Fulton County voting machine that is being used in the Georgia runoff and it IS connected to the internet. He established two-way communication from a polling pad in a voting center. He’s telling the GA Senate about it right now.
