Facebook Co-Founder Calls Out Zuckerberg & Says It’s Time To “Break-Up” The Company

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes recently called out Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, stating that things have become out of control and that it's time for the company to "break up."

  • Reflect On:

    Was Facebook really invented to be a simple social media platform? Why do so many Ex high level US government employees work at Facebook? What is Facebooks real purpose and why are they censoring free speech?

It’s no secret that many people believe that Facebook has become a massive tool for censorship. Multiple social media platforms are now banning anything and everything that opposes certain political thoughts or corporate agendas, regardless of how credible it is and how much evidence there is to back up those claims. A lot of news that isn’t really false has simply been labelled as ‘fake news.’ It reminds me of what’s happening with vaccines today, for example, as the mainstream media (which never receives any type of censorship or “fake” labels) never seems to address the concerns and points that are made by multiple vaccine safety advocates, even when those concerns are expressed by scientists and doctors. Instead, mainstream media uses terms like ‘anti-vax conspiracy theorists’ and ‘fake news’ to make their point, while simultaneously influencing the minds of the masses.

Elitist groups like NewsGuard have been appointed to determine for the population what’s real and what’s not, and they’re really going hard against alternative media and placing enormous amounts of restriction and censorship on them in conjunction with Facebook. NewsGuard in particular is funded by Clinton donors and big pharma, with ties to the CFR, and NewsGuard seems to have a clear agenda in favour of mainstream media. You can read more about that here.

Furthermore, if you look at some of Facebook’s employees, it’s not hard to see why they are censoring specific types of information. For example,  ex-DARPA Director and Google Executive Regina Dugan was an employee at Facebook. Nathan Gleicher worked at the US governments counsel for the US D.OJ. and is now the head of Cyber Security at Facebook. Joel Kaplan, a Deputy Chief of Staff for the US, is Facebook’s VP of Public Policy. There are several employees with similar backgrounds. Not many people know that Facebook has become a revolving door of employees between the corporation itself and the US government. We see this with various corporations like Monsanto and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as pharmaceutical companies and the Centers  for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

This is why we must carefully examine the recent piece Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes published in the New York times, calling for the break up of the social media giant due to the “staggering” and “unchecked” power of CEO Mark Zukerberg.

Before we go any further, I want to mention that a lot of blame has been put on Zuckerberg for Facebook’s actions as of late, particularly when it comes to the censorship of information, mass surveillance, and sharing of information that most people thought would remain private. But is it really only Zuckerberg? Or has Facebook been ‘taken over’ by ‘higher’ powers and made Zuckerberg the ‘fall guy,’ or the one to blame? Something to think about.

In his oped, co-founder Hughes points towards Facebook’s “sloppy privacy practices,” “violent rhetoric and fake news,” and the “unbounded drive to capture ever more of our time and attention.”

He goes on to say that “there is no precedent for Zuckerberg’s ability to monitor, organize and even censor the conversations of two billion people.”

Again, at least in my opinion, it’s quite clear to me that this is not just Zuckerberg. The US government has come under intense scrutiny as of late with regards to mass corruption in several different areas, from financial to healthcare and more. Somebody else could be pulling the strings, right?

Facebook’s ban and deletion of accounts, including those belonging to multiple media outlets and public figures who have voiced their opinions and shared information exposing the government, has been called a ‘modern day book burning.’ It’s happened to us here at CE as well. We’ve been demonetized by Youtube and heavily censored on Facebook. This is exactly why we created CETV, so we can try and stay afloat due to the fact that all of our revenue streams have been taken away.

Hughes went on:

“Mark alone can decide how to configure Facebook’s algorithms to determine what people see in their News Feeds, what privacy settings they can use and even which messages get delivered.”

Regardless of whether Mark alone is a puppet or not, the issue is that Facebook and other social media platforms have teamed up with corporations like NewsGuard (mentioned above) and are actively censoring people’s rights to free speech and information.

What Does This “Break-Up” of Facebook Imply? What’s Going On Here?

Anything mainstream media posts is always questionable, regardless of whether the author has any ill-intentions or not. The platform The New York Times, for example, is pure establishment media. It’s one of multiple platforms like CNN that more and more people are starting to see through and perceive as tools for “the invisible government” that owes “no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” (Roosevelt)

When former mayor of New York City John F. Hylan said that “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country,” he wasn’t joking. Today we know this to be a fact, given the documents that’ve been released showing the close connections between mainstream media and intelligence agencies. Furthermore, we now have multiple award-winning journalists from these news agencies blowing the whistle, emphasizing that they are and have been nothing but major mouthpieces for intelligence agencies, governments and corporations.

Make no mistake, through social media platforms like Facebook, information has been able to spread far and wide across the world. In large part, a lot of the information shared on Facebook that threatened various political and corporate agendas was also responsible for shifting the way many people now perceive our planet. This is still a problem for the global elite. It’s unclear why Hughes is calling for some sort of change with regards to Facebook’s censorship and the way they are designing their algorithms, but perhaps it’s in order to promote free speech or cause the destruction of Facebook.

If he is advocating for the destruction of Facebook, which is still a platform used to spread important information despite the limited reach, censorship and algorithm changes, then he could be advocating for the global elite. But even the global elite’s agenda in regards to Facebook is unclear — they could want Facebook gone, or they could use it to collect data and information on people as well as use it as a surveillance tool.

The Takeaway

The funny thing about censorship is that it’s been happening for decades, ever since JFK warned us that  “dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it.” He also said that “there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” (source)

That statement is still very relevant today, as the elite are constantly justifying their censorship efforts by simply calling things ‘fake’ instead of actually addressing the points made.

Sure, there is fake news out there, but what’s happening is quite obvious. It’s reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984, where we now have a ministry of truth that tries to silence anybody who opposes it.

Our world is not as it seems, and there are those who want to shape the narrative in their favour and control the perception of the masses. That being said, all of these censorship efforts aren’t really working in the elite’s favour because the more they do it, the more people start to recognize how ridiculous it really is.

I’m going to leave you with this great quote from Edward Snowden to ponder on:

“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee, but rather because we as citizens, we as users of these services, help each other. We talk and we share and we point out what is fake. We point out what is true. The answer to bad speech is not censorship, the answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to exercise and spread the idea that critical thinking matters, now more than ever, given the fact that lies seem to be getting more popular.” –Edward Snowden (source)

Al Sharpton Cancels NYC ‘Vaccine Forum’ Amid Pressure From Physicians – But It’s Happening Anyway

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Amid pressure from scientists and physicians, Al Sharpton cancels vaccine forum event aimed at educating the public about potential vaccine dangers. But the event is still on in a new location!

  • Reflect On:

    Why such a concerted effort from the establishment to shut down public events aimed at educating people about safety concerns regarding vaccines? If there was nothing to hide, why shut them down so aggressively?

The Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network were set to host a “vaccine forum” on Oct 19th, 2019 in Harlem that would feature speakers focused on raising awareness about vaccine injuries and lack of vaccine safety.

The event was going to take place at National Action Network’s headquarters on 145th Street, and Sharpton was slated to welcome guests, alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is currently suing New York State for removing the option for parents to exercise religious exemptions to vaccines.

After the event was shut down at NAN due to pressure from prominent vaccine supporters, the location was moved to an Assembly Hall at Riverside Church. (More details below.)

Dr. Peter Hotez, who has refused to publicly debate Robert F Kennedy Jr on the matters of vaccine safety, was one of the individuals trying to shut down the event. When speaking of Sharpton he stated:

“His organization should not be hosting this event,” he said. “He should not be appearing at this event. This is an event which is intended to deliberately work towards depriving kids in Harlem of their life-saving vaccines and to make parents question the safety of those vaccines.”

Not all share Hotez’s opinion that vaccines are a safe, one size fits all pharmaceutical. And there is much evidence to support those doubts. Hence why the vaccine awareness movement is rapidly growing, it’s evidence based and that’s becoming more obvious as each day goes by.

If there was no evidence vaccines come with serious dangers, this argument would have died out years ago. Take for example the resurgence of topics like flat earth, it had celebrity backing and was an internet phenomenon, but it died off quickly as there simply is no evidence to support the idea. With vaccines, it’s much different. More and more prominent, credible and credentialed individuals are joining the movement because the evidence continues to mount. Their goal is to assess vaccine safety and stop government from trying to force vaccines on everyone due to pharmaceutical pressures.

Dr. Sean O’Leary with the American Academy of Pediatrics also outspoken about the event:

“Just when we get done with the measles outbreak, actions like this threaten the public’s health by starting another measles outbreak, […] Here, in another part of New York City, we have folks ready to go into a community and spread more misinformation and pseudoscience.”

Again, more misinformed and opinionated statements from individuals that perhaps are simply not attempting to see the truth or who are pressured not to speak the truth. The body of evidence that expresses the lack of vaccine safety is vast. For example, a pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research found that 1 in 39 kids are injured by vaccines in some way, contrary to the estimate put forth by the CDC that suggests 1 in a million are injured –  that’s quite the gap.

It brings up the question, if there is nothing to hide in the actions of pharmaceutical companies, why are they protected by laws from ever being sued for vaccine injuries and harm? Why are public debates on the issue always cancelled? Why does the media work so hard to turn people to question things into ‘antivaxxers?’ Why do we (CE) had our reach limited on Facebook and receive ‘fake news’ strikes every time we report on vaccines? – even when the information is completely fact based…

Because there is something to hide here. If there was nothing to hide, big pharma and their control over congress, government, media, some scientists and doctors would not be working so hard to shut down people who have figured out the truth.

“It is a grave warning sign for American democracy that the pharmaceutical industry is now so powerful that it can silence debate, even in the traditional heart of civil rights activism” – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

If you are in the New York area, you can attend this free public event to understand more about vaccines safety on October 19th,  2019.

Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Sheila Ealey; John Gilmore; Dr. Phil Valentine; Curtis Cost; Dr. Lawrence Palevsky; Reverend Walter Sotelo; Mary Holland; Gary Null; Mitchel Cohen; and many more.

The event time and location is as follows:

Saturday, October 19th, 1:00-4:0 p.m.
Assembly Hall at Riverside Church
91 Claremont Avenue, New York, NY

Tulsi Gabbard Just Called Hillary Clinton The “Embodiment Of Corruption” And Much More

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Hillary Clinton just referred to Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset in an interview. Tulsi comes back at her on Twitter, exposing the true face of Clinton.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it not important we have more public conversations about the true nature of the politicians we vote for?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently suggested that she thinks Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is being “groomed” by Russia to run as a third-party candidate in 2020. Of course, she supplied no evidence of this, but using “Russia” in any sentence in the US is a sure-fire way of striking fear in people about someone.

In an interview with David Plouff, Obama’s former campaign manager, Clinton said:

“They’re also going to do third-party again, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Again, step out of part politics for a second, are we really going to pretend this is about parties and not the global elite being upset at someone who’s ruining their show? Think about it, Clinton used Facebook, Google, YouTube and almost every media outlet in the US to manipulate the public into thinking she was a viable candidate. Trump was keen to use social media, and played the role of causing drama, but at least he was transparent about it. Clinton on the other hand, is precisely what Gabbard stated about her in a follow-up Tweet to Clinton’s remarks.

When it comes to the US’ involvement in war, which Gabbard has been rightly critical about, she has also said that Trump “has the blood of the Kurds on his hands” but explained that she holds both parties responsible for supporting what she described as a “regime-change war.” Accurately seeing that this is not about parties but about deep state agendas.

The Takeaway

As we often say in step 1 of The CE Protocol, we have to break the illusion of the world around us. Events like this indicate that there is a greater desire for people to speak up and expose what many people have known for a long time but has never received the attention it deserves. Gabbard in this case is helping the American public see more clearly the true nature of some of the politicians at play and the actions they take.

When we learn to see these actions more clearly we can call into question whether or not our voting processes or systems are truly representative of what people want or whether they are just there to tell a story to the people – one that isn’t true – so money and power can be made and maintained at the elite level.

Needing to have open and public conversations about this type of stuff, moving beyond the mainstream media created celebrity status of various candidates, is important so that people can begin to see the truth – see the person behind the mask. This is partly what people see with Trump, the truth of what politicians look like, act like and where their agendas lie. It’s all laid bare. Whether or not you agree or disagree with it is up to you to decide, because at least now it can be seen clearly. Especially if you avoid mainstream media’s coverage of it.

This is Not A Movie, It’s October 1st, 2019 In Hong Kong

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Protests in Hong Kong rose to many tense moments over the past few months. This video footage shows clashes between riot police and protesters on Kowloon’s Nathan Road.

  • Reflect On:

    Have people reached a breaking point when it comes to how often they are not heard by governments?

In the video below, what looks like a Hollywood movie is the reality just a couple of weeks ago in Hong Kong. Riot police and protesters have been clashing for months as the streets become filled with hundreds of tear gas canisters and Molotov cocktails. Having covered the G20 summit in Toronto, these scenes appear much more tense than what I saw during those protests, and even those were filled with vandalism, pepper spray, burning cars and rubber bullets.

We’ve covered the Hong Kong protests a couple of times here on CE, including a full segment on CETV here.

There are obviously two perspectives as to what is going on, the Mainland China perspective and that of the Hong Kong protesters who feel Mainland China is acting wrongly. From the perspective of Mainland China, the protests in Hong Kong are fundamentally the result of Western interference and attempts at a ‘soft recolonization’ of Hong Kong. Their arguments have some merit.

From the Hongkongers perspective,  tensions rose after the introduction of an extradition bill that threatened residents’ freedoms. Protesters are demanding Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam resigns. They are also calling for:

  • The complete withdrawal of the proposed extradition bill
  • The government to withdraw the use of the word “riot” in relation to protests
  • The unconditional release of arrested protesters and charges against them dropped
  • An independent inquiry into police behaviour
  • Implementation of genuine universal suffrage

As with many things people are feeling at the moment, big government has been overreaching for quite some time, and freedoms continue to be cut while quality of life in our fast-paced modern society diminishes. What we must remember when viewing these issues is we can’t singularly look at each one and determine whether it’s right or wrong so easily. People are exposed to ‘hits’ from every direction to their wallets, freedom, health, lifestyle and psyche and our world is reflecting the feeling that ‘enough is enough.’

Since much of the time we aren’t sure what else to do, people fight back, they do what they think will lead them to being heard and having a solution brought forth. is this the best way forward? Perhaps not, but when it becomes clear to people that their governments and the voting process do not work in their benefit nor favor, this is sometimes what they revert to.
