Rep. Jim Jordan in House hearing: “Big Tech’s out to get conservatives” – VIDEO

This is a big deal. Picked up from RealClearPolitics.

Rep. Jim Jordan accused technology and social media companies of attempting to influence voters in the upcoming election on Wednesday at a hearing on antitrust issues with the heads of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google.

“I’ll just cut to the chase: Big Tech’s out to get conservatives,” Jordan said.

Toward the end, watch the slimy actions of the majority. Disgusting.

I know absolutely that THIS BLOG has been targeted by Google and that I have been shadow-banned on Twitter. I’m small potatoes.

THIS ELECTION is not small potatoes.

And did you see the way that the dems treated AG Barr yesterday in the Judiciary hearing?   Perfectly coordinated.

I thought my contempt, my fear for their souls, could not be any stronger than it was before.

This election is so important.

The other say I had a really awful dream, like something from a dystopian prepper novel.   I was watching a classroom of students in scarves being taught to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the successful burning of the Portland Federal Building.

Just think, we’ll be able to have festive operas about the Great Turning Point back in 2020 when the freedom fighters against racism and injustice began the liberation of the West from patriarchy and oppression. Just as once there were Revolutionary Operas like Raid on the White Regiment, Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy, and Detachment of Women, children will thrill to perform Burning of the Portland Federal Building.  Duets of Biden and Pelosi with large swarming banner waving choruses of dems in the House.

And don’t forget THE SQUAD!  With lots of accordians.

When I hear the shrill and openly fraudulent rhetoric of the political and cultural Left, in secular society but also in the ecclesial sphere, I can’t shake the image of the Red Guards and the Cultural Revolution.   In the Chinese Cultural Revolution – NB: the rioters in the streets Portland et al. are driven by demons and the Communism they’ve imbibed in public schools – children were taught to sing songs like, “Lin Biao and Confucius are Both Bad Things” and “Study Well and Make Progress Every Day”

Little Red Guards’ hearts are most red,
loyal to the people loyal to the party.
Study well and make progress every day,
carefully reading the revolution.
Study well and make progress every day,
grow up to become the workers, peasants, and soldiers.
Facing the sun to move forward,
we must become the successors of communism.
Facing the sun to move forward,
we must become the successors of communism.

Who – or rather WHO – out there really doesn’t think that the CCP isn’t deeply into what is going on our streets right now.

This has been brewing for a long time.

Here is some CCTV coverage of a pro CCP rally in DC in 2008. I love denunciation of rioters and racism at 1:00 and the praise of CNN at 1:26.

And this whole thing about getting young people all riled up… renaming streets… tearing down old things… and Mao’s famous swim was near Wuhan.

    First, I didn’t realize it was an actual ballet that played in the Lincoln Center. Secondly, you should read the comments on the Detachment of Women on YouTube. Humanity’s becoming more dumb.

    Probably not on your radar, but last night Bill Still had footage from the Chicago police department showing just how organized and methodical Antifa is: These Marxists evidently want blood flowing in the streets and soon.

    What an odd dream, weirdly specific, but dreams can be too real.
    Breitbart News, a conservative media outlet, just found out they are being limited by, I think, Google, it’s hard to keep these Big Tech outlets in your head. They are literally limiting finding Breitbart stories when viewers go to do a search. I know I have made comments on Fox for eons and in the last few months things changed. My comments are now shadow banned or deleted in front of my eyes. They seem to prefer lunkheads yelling at each other. You can also, I think, see the same media bias in their stories you see in other media, and not allowing comments on many stories. If the story is on LGBT or a crime involving a black person, often, no comments.
    We are so up against it, it’s seems like it’s going to take a Lepanto. In fact the ruling class in America is Democrat/Marxist, they own everything, rule everybody, they are already de facto in charge. One would never think the White House would seem small, but in comparison to the ruling class, it does. I see a lot of crazy Americans who look and sound like demons, the walking dead, and we have many zombies who have been possessed or are as dumb as bags of rocks, but the silent majority…are they still out there. We have to wait to November to find out.

    The problem here is that the US Supreme Court recently ruled in Prager that big tech companies including google are private entities therefore they can censor any voice they want for any reason. This is why I think that the internet needs to be regulated as a public utility – that way you could make a case under civil protections such as Bill of Rights or the the Charter in Canada.

    They yield enormous power but essentially are private entities and therein, in my view, lies the problem.

    I write about it on my blog here

    “I know absolutely that THIS BLOG has been targeted by Google and that I have been shadow-banned on Twitter. I’m small potatoes.” It’s the people who are small potaotoes that they are going after. They don’t want the small potatoes to turn into a potatoe chip factory. They have to put them down before they grow into something larger. I’m not saying they’re not going after the larger targets such as the President(obviously)but that they want to take out the ‘small potaotes’ as well. They probably worry more about you than him.

    This was sent to me in an email today:
    …”My Heart rejoiced when I heard you say: “God is in control of everything, so do not despair!” yes! indeed I am in control of every situation; some souls might not think so when situations are turning against them for they imprudently rely on their strength and their victories; however, sooner or later, their fruit diminishes and all supernatural lights start fading away; their measure of love for Me as well, lessens in degree and in virtue; evil tendencies start growing in them and the energies they had been obtaining from Me are perilously ceasing and are not being absorbed as before; flesh starts conquering them and their spirit influenced by the world will keep dragging them back to their old passions;

    but if a soul remains in Me and does not neglect her spiritual and sacramental life and all that the Spirit taught her, and who allowed herself to be possessed by My Spirit, in times of persecution and in difficult situations, that soul will rely on Me and with confidence will say: “the Lord is with us, so who can be against us?” never say: “our Lord has abandoned us…” or “the Lord has forgotten me…”

  7. Kerry says:

    “Your objection has been heard.”
    “I never knew you, depart from me”.

    (Lest this comment seem glib, this commenter well knows he might himself hear the the same words.)

  8. NOCatholic says:

    I fully agree that Big Tech is not conservative friendly.

    But — Red Guard? Isn’t that a bit over the top? A Biden Administration, while bad, is not going to be a Maoist Cultural Revolution 2.0.

    [They would if they could. Mark my words.]

  9. Semper Gumby says:

    Several social media platforms seem determined to recreate the good ol’ book-burning days of the 1930s. Shadow-banning conservatives, removing Hydroxychloroquine videos and Heather MacDonald’s BLM video (now apparently back up with an “inappropriate” label), and who knows what is going on with copies of “The Camp of the Saints.”

    This is quite an aromatic blend of malice and lack of confidence brewed up by the Left.

    A line from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” Dr. Jones Sr. to SS-Standartenführer Vogel:

    “It tells me that goosestepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of burning them!”

    That probably ticked off SS-Standartenführer Vogel even more than being tossed out of the window of a zeppelin by Indy. Still, good advice.

    For what it’s worth, about 9 days ago Yahoo news suspended ALL comments on articles. I would contribute there occasionally and there were times my comments were censored. One point I try to convey tactfully and without finger pointing is todays Democratic party is not the same Democratic party of our parents and grandparents. A Democrat with political beliefs like Jimmy Carter had in 1976 and Lloyd Bentsen in 1988 (don’t forget Tip O’Neill, who from what I remember as a high school kid seemed to work well as Speaker of the House with “Reagan Democrats”) would be ostracized and ignored by today’s Democratic party.

  11. NOCatholic says:

    For that matter, Ronald Reagan, who helped Pope St John Paul the Great defeat Soviet Communism, would be very out of place in the Republican Party of Donald Trump.

  12. Semper Gumby says:

    NOCatholic: Interesting, make your case. Both Reagan and Trump, like JP II, were/are not fans of socialism, abortion, Lib media, or a weak military. Reagan would not be amused by the current Speaker of the House, for example, tearing up the SOTU speech. Nor would Reagan be amused by censorship of conservatives. Neither Reagan or Trump were preferred by GOP insiders.

    Then there’s this, an excerpt from Reagan’s diary in 1986 about the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the William Rehnquist nomination to the Supreme Court:

    “The 1st meeting was last evening—highlighted by vitriolic attacks on TV by Sens. Kennedy, Metzenbaum & Biden. They really are a lynch mob.”

  13. NOCatholic says:

    @Semper Gumby: This statement from Reagan’s son Micheal during the 2016 campaign is indicative:

    “At best, he [Ronald Reagan] would be confused by Donald Trump and the way he’s running the campaign. I don’t think he’d be appreciative of the demeaning style of Donald Trump — the way he’s treated the other candidates — because my father knew that at the end of the day he had to bring everyone together to win an election.”


    Despite their similarities on some issues, they are two very different men. Had Reagan been alive and called Trump “demeaning” as his son did, Trump likely would have lashed out against Reagan. You may have noticed, Trump does not take criticism well. It’s telling that your Reagan quote came from his private diary, not from any public statement Reagan made during his lifetime.

  14. Semper Gumby says:

    Portland last night: in addition to the usual burning of the U.S. flag, apparently several Bibles were burned.

  15. Semper Gumby says:

    NOCatholic: Certainly, Michael Reagan has a worthy opinion, but it is not determinative. However, you moved the goalposts from your hypothetical “in the Republican party” to comparing personalities. Furthermore, Reagan made sharp remarks as President, radio announcer and Governor. Perhaps Reagan would have, in 2020, tweeted sharp entries from his diary.

    Clearly there is a difference in rhetoric between the two men. There is clearly also a difference between the 1980s and 2020.

    Here is an article written not by The Hill but Michael Reagan himself several days ago “God Save America From Joe Biden”:

    “The liberal media constantly tell us that everything wrong with America today, including the sticky weather, is the fault of President Trump.

    “No matter what Trump does or doesn’t do to fight COVID-19, resuscitate the economy or subdue the rioting and violence in Democrat-wrecked cities, he is attacked.” [Citizens who voted for him or will vote for him are also attacked.]
