By now, most of my readers will probably have heard about the rank censorship by tech platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Google, of the story in the New York Post about the machinations of Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat candidate for president, “Sleepy” Joe Biden. It is well-known that Hunter Biden was given a place on the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, at a ridiculous salary of $50,000 per month. Hunter knows little about the gas industry, and less about Ukraine, so it has been widely believed that the sole reason for his placement on the board of a foreign gas company was so they could curry favor with Hunter’s dad, Vice President, Joe Biden in the Obama Administration.
Many people out there think that the ongoing story about the big tech/social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google-owned YouTube) and others (Vimeo) censoring information they deem “Not True” is basically a conspiracy theory promulgated by conservatives who feel left out by the “in crowd”. Videos below are removed by platforms almost as soon as they are posted, by the Almighty Arbiters of Truth on the Internet. Do you want Facebook and Twitter and Google determining what of your posts are true?
Well, just this week, a group of Doctors, going by “Frontline Doctors”, put out a video press conference, where they describe their findings on the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine in treating cases of Covid-19, the disease caused by the Wuhan Coronavirus (which WAS spread around the world from Communist China).
Let’s make this Video go Viral Today!
Oh, and by the way, this doctors’ group’s own website was taken down! No Freedom of Speech in today’s United States.

In a news story about the slime treatment accorded to author J K Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, when she spoke the truth, I found a statement by a judge in the UK that set me back a bit (well, not really a BIT, but a HUGE amount). Ms. Rowling spoke up in support of a researcher who was fired from her job, because she pointed out that a biological Male cannot become a Female.
That brought out the Long Knives of the “Transgender Mafia”, who took to Twitter to angrily berate Ms. Rowling for being a hateful bigot. The researcher, Maya Forstater, was fired for using “offensive and exclusionary” language in stating that a male is a male, regardless of his “feelings”, and Rowling’s tweet in support made her also offensive (as in, offending someone).
Here is what the Judge in a “Central London Employment Tribunal” said in approving Ms. Forstater’s removal from her job. [emphasis mine]
“I conclude from … the totality of the evidence, that [Forstater] is absolutist in her view of sex and it is a core component of her belief that she will refer to a person by the sex she considered appropriate even if it violates their dignity and/or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment. The approach is not worthy of respect in a democratic society,” read the ruling from Judge James Tayler.
Yes, a person should not be permitted to hold her job when she states the simple truth about biology. Now, didn’t I read somewhere that the end-times might be nigh when “Evil is Good, and Good is Evil”? This is a JUDGE! What is civilization coming to, when a judge does not recognize the truth when he hears it. Now, hurting someone’s feelings is a firing offense, and reality is simply denied. This is not a good omen for Western Civilization.
Here’s a link to a post by a friend of mine, over at Ratburger.org. I was impressed enough by his post that I have added a link to LifeSiteNews on my sidebar, so Pro-Life RushBabe49 followers can go directly there.
I am appalled by the actions of the Culture of Death (abortion supporters) who seem to run the big tech sites (Facebook, Google, Twitter), and systematically deny pro-lifers and conservatives a voice. My followers will know that I do not maintain a presence on Facebook or Twitter, and I am being reminded of why that has been a good decision daily.
Please give LifeSiteNews your attention, and send your friends there. Choose Life, not Death.
Just lately, there have been a number of stories in various media of huge tech companies having their discriminatory policies toward users with conservative viewpoints exposed to public view.
Just lately, the big story has been that Twitter staff have, behind the scenes, “shadow-banned” conservatives by making their tweets essentially invisible to their followers. Current and former Twitter employees were caught on tape bragging about having made tweets by conservatives not available to their followers.
Earlier, a big story was how YouTube, owned by Google, banned PragerU from its service, comparing it to “white supremacists”. Google is the Big Kahuna of the Internet, and its algorithm changes can prompt uproars from various “harmed” groups. And then, there’s the recent case of Google engineer James Damore, who was fired for posting an internal essay regarding the internal culture of the company, which would put conservative employees “on trial” and shun them; many stories of disturbing content on internal Google message boards have come out recently.
Facebook, that other Big Kahuna, has also been accused by multiple parties of censoring its “news feed” to eliminate stories by and about conservatives. It has also been called out for censoring user posts that show conservative views.
Gee, this seems to make me sound prescient for simply staying off Facebook and Twitter. So far, nobody has tried to censor RushBabe49’s conservative posts and viewpoint. And I thank all my loyal followers for their support, even though it’s mostly silent.
Here’s an idea. How about if ALL the world’s largest media entities simply stopped publishing any pictures or video of terrorists. No YouTube, no Facebook, no Twitter, NO PICTURES OF ANY KIND. They would still publish stories, but no pictures would show Islamic Butchers beheading journalists, blowing up mosques, or shooting their machine guns from the backs of jeeps. Google, Twitter, Facebook, and every other social network would agree to immediately take down ANY terrorist videos, pictures, or blog posts. What would happen if every terrorist group simply lost their world stage? Their activities would be reported on only in plain-vanilla words. They might have a harder time recruiting, if no one could access the bomb-building instructions online. I have always wondered why it’s so easy to get pictures of terrorists doing their evil work-if we can take the pictures, why can’t we simply blow them up?
BBC, NY Times, Bloomberg, Sky News, Wall Street Journal, CBC, Associated Press, Washington Post, Times of London, Reuters, YouTube/Google, Facebook, Twitter-DO YOUR PART TO STOP TERRORISM. And no BS about “freedom of the press”. Press freedom also includes freedom NOT to publish.
I often have friends ask me why I am not on Facebook, since they all are. They are constantly updating their profiles, and commenting on their news feeds. They also complain a lot about other users violently disagreeing with them on Facebook, and doing so using nasty language.
Well, I am a 67-year-old woman, and pretty conservative in my outlook and opinions. I don’t take kindly to being figuratively spat on or ripped to shreds. I subscribe to the internet newsletters of Kim Komando (yep, that’s her real name!), and she often has articles about the goings-on at Facebook.
Like THIS, very recently. Or THIS from a couple of months ago. If you go to your favorite search engine and enter the words Facebook and Danger, you get millions of hits. I acknowledge that most of the dangers of Facebook are to young people, but I’m really not anxious to have my identity stolen, or every internet move tracked by a social network. Experts have listed in profusion the many ways that you can be harmed by Facebook.
Update on May 11, 2016. As told by some former Facebook employees, the social media site deliberately suppresses conservative news. We have suspected this for a while, and many of my Ricochet friends have anecdotal evidence of this. Now, everyone is aware that the techies in Silicon Valley are heavily liberal and intolerant. This is just more evidence for this. One more confirmation that I am doing the right thing in avoiding Facebook.
And, aside from all those dangers, I simply am not interested in sharing every little thing about my self and my life. I don’t think that all of my friends (real friends, not Facebook “friends”) are interested in knowing what I had for breakfast yesterday, or where I am at this exact moment (which is why I’m not on Twitter either). There are still parts of my self that are mine alone, and not public knowledge. In my world, there is still something known as privacy. There is still something known as shame. Many young people seem to have lost all sense of shame (which is why you see people voluntarily posting naked pictures of themselves online), and when they are “exposed”, they simply shrug it off. Not me, not now, not ever.
I have to say, I totally agree with the sentiment expressed here. Thanks go to my Ricochet friend, Simon Templar:
A Black Reporter Summarizes Barack Obama!
letvent / November 7, 2013
The below summarization of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 5 year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head. And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obamas is penned by a well known journalist of color?
BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespected) their Christmas family picture.”
The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.
I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people.
The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.
Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.
He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.
I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…
Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”
