ENEMIES LIST: Geller Report Among Top 20 Conservative Websites The Federal Government Ordered Censored On Social Media

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



“This is the destruction of American liberty right before our eyes. This is a fascist regime aiming to criminalize political dissent.” Pamela Geller

Geller Report was identified among the “most prominent domains” (including the  New York Post, Fox News, Epoch Times and Breitbart)  whose election coverage was cited in tweets flagged.My verified Twitter account, with 225,000 followers, was permanently suspended from Twitter in the wake of the election putsch. What I didn’t know was that this unconstitutional censorship was ordered by the  federal government.

This from a report from the Election Integrity Partnership, which consulted with the Department of Homeland Security on a sweeping project to flag and report purported “misinformation” to tech platforms for removal, labeling or throttling.

There was a time, no long ago, that social media refuse to cooperate with the government. Remember when Apple refused to give access to the phones of the San Bernardino jihad terrorists who slaughter their non-Muslim co-workers at the company Christimas party?

Enemies list? Fed-backed censorship machine targeted 20 news sites

Just the News, New York Post, Fox News, Epoch Times and Breitbart were identified among the “most prominent domains” whose election coverage was cited in tweets flagged by the Election Integrity Partnership and its collaborators.

By: Greg Price, Just The News, October 1, 2022:

Biden administration gave millions in tax dollars to groups after election, records show. Election Integrity Partnership says it had 35% success rate getting tech platforms to label, remove or restrict content.

The private consortium that reported election “misinformation” to tech platforms during the 2020 election season, in “consultation” with federal agencies, targeted several news organizations in its dragnet.

Websites for Just the News, New York Post, Fox News, Washington Examiner, Washington Times, Epoch Times and Breitbart were identified among the 20 “most prominent domains across election integrity incidents” that were cited in tweets flagged by the Election Integrity Partnership and its collaborators.

The Washington Post, New York Times and CNN also appeared on the list, though the consortium’s after-action report emphasizes most of the mainstream media reports “were referenced as fact-checks” that played a “corrective role” against “misleading narratives.”

The report also identified the 21 “most prominent repeat spreaders [of misinformation] on Twitter,” all of them politically classified as “right.” Actor James Woods led that group, followed by The Gateway Pundit blog, Donald Trump Jr. and President Trump himself. The report emphasized 15 were verified by Twitter.

The Stanford Internet Observatory, University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, think tank Atlantic Council, and social media analytics firm Graphika claimed their consortium had a 35% success rate getting flagged content removed, throttled or labeled.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the State Department, and liberal groups such as the Democratic National Committee, also flagged purported misinformation through the consortium.

“No news organization should be subjected to an enemies/censorship list for reporting newsworthy facts” Just the News Editor in Chief John Solomon said in a statement. “It’s even more egregious that this censorship machinery was prodded, aided and sanctioned by the federal government.”

Individuals and organizations named on the lists told Just the News they put no stock in the designations.

“Gateway Pundit is reviewing its legal options,” General Counsel John Burns wrote in an email, calling the “fascist, public-private partnership … a very simple nexus or entwinement case, with deep Supreme Court precedent.”

“How is this any different from what happens in Communist Party-controlled China?” publisher Jim Hoft said. “The scary thing is, the EIP is only a single office within the greater government-wide Ministry of Truth.”

“We noticed a massive drop off on and around the 2020 elections. It got really bad after [Jan. 6, 2021],” paired with apparent “increased leftwing bot activity,” Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk wrote in a text message

“Compared to my engagement on every other platform, there’s no question that this new revelation fits with our lived experience on Twitter,” he said. “That tax payer dollars are being spent to censor half the country is a travesty and whoever is behind this must be held accountable.”

“The definition of ‘disinformation’ is now any reported facts that go against the world view of the political establishment,” Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alexander Marlow wrote in an email.

The consortium “relies on innuendo and insinuation to imply we are not trustworthy and thus should be censored” rather than accusing Breitbart “of publishing inaccurate stories,” he said. The company is being targeted for “having a massively powerful platform that leads the political conversation every single day.”

“We’re in the middle of what I would call the ‘Great Suppression,’” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Just the News. He was suspended by Twitter for several months for comments on hydroxychloroquine.

“Censorship is a civil rights issue,” he wrote in a text message. “Not only do we have the right to speak, but we have the right to petition the government and be free from retaliation.”

“This is the destruction of American liberty right before our eyes,” conservative activist Pamela Geller wrote in an email. She called it “more than just campaign rhetoric … This is a fascist regime aiming to criminalize political dissent.”

Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec said “the crooked scumbags that run the regime target me so often” because they are “terrified” of him.

“We are not going to stop fighting for freedom until their entire edifice [is] torn down,” he vowed.

The consortium report said it identified domains that were “linked to by more than 500 tweets or retweets” in multiple incidents, and further explained the role some of them allegedly played in an appendix on “additional partisan news outlets.”

By the number of incidents (46) and combined tweets and retweets (870,000), The Gateway Pundit led the pack. It had an “estimated right/left spread” of 0.08% left and 99.92% right, meaning “the proportion of original tweets made by influential users classified on the ideological spectrum based on our network analysis.”

Breitbart was next with 26 incidents and more than 400,000 tweets and retweets, with 99.06% right spread. Further down the list with fewer than 100,000 tweets and retweets, Epoch Times (12 incidents) and Just the News (9) were both given a 100% right spread.

The appendix says Just the News “produced stories that applied political commentary to narratives asserting election fraud and was involved in spreading the Nevada Whistleblower narrative,” referring to an affidavit alleging that county supervisors ignored mismatches between names and signatures on mail-in ballots.

“The documents indicate we were flagged for reporting on a sworn declaration that prompted litigation in Nevada,” noted Solomon. “The allegations were widely reported, including in the Washington Post and local news sites. One voter admitted she was registered four times because of faulty signature detection. The allegations even prompted a judge to let the Trump campaign review one of the signature verification machines.”

      Censoring is bad no matter who does it. I have an idea though. Why don’t you simply print an article that shows all of the proven true statements that you have made in the past? If you can find any and repost them, that should quiet any accusations of you being propaganda.
