(Richard Enos) “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” As a child, this well-worn phrase was the perfect antidote to whatever insulting name-calling I had to endure from other children. Those times I did remember to use it, it seemed to give me back some strength and made me feel good. For all of us, the perspective behind this phrase can turn an ‘insult’ into what it truly is: mere words, a string of vocal utterances without innate meaning or power, unless the recipient were to interpret them as such by taking them personally.
Why is the U.S. Government Censoring ORGONITE on Etsy?!
(Martin Armstrong) While in the US some people have discovered that running a YouTube Channel can get you in trouble with the law. One many found himself in Georgia with being charged with running a business without a license even though he was not selling anything just offering his opinion.

(Isaac Davis) Social media censorship is here and out in the open, and it has become clear that the major tech companies are working together to shut down and silence members of the free press for political reasons.

(Zero Hedge) Silicon Valley’s coordinated purge of all things Infowars from social media has had an unexpected result; website traffic to Infowars.com has soared in the past week, according to Amazon’s website ranking service Alexa.
(Michael Snyder) In 2018, we have seen an unprecedented crackdown on anti-establishment voices on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. When they were first created, these social media platforms were essentially neutral, and they really did greatly contribute to the marketplace of ideas. But now there is a tremendous effort to censor voices that are a threat to the establishment, and in recent months we have witnessed the greatest purge of conservative voices in the history of the Internet. Anything that does not conform to the agenda of the elite is being labeled as “hate speech”, and countless anti-establishment voices have had social media accounts either “shadowbanned” or terminated completely. Needless to say, this could dramatically affect the outcome of the elections in November.

(Mac Slavo) Over the last couple of years major social media, news and video platforms have been actively engaged in the censorship of what they believe to be fake news and information.

(Matt Agorist) On Saturday, co-founder of the Free Thought Project, Jason Bassler logged onto Facebook like he does every morning.
(Ethan Huff) Liberals in the Golden State have come up with yet another way to expand authoritarian control over the people who live there. It’s known as Senate Bill 1424, and it would basically eliminate all independent press in California, dubbing any information that establishment politicians disagree with as “fake news.”
