Now that the autumn semester is well underway, it is worth asking whether students have a chance to participate in free and open debate. The short answer is “No, they don’t.” They don’t have a chance to explore unpopular ideas and controversial opinions. They are “protected” from ideas that might make them uncomfortable. What’s being stifled here is more than speech. It’s their education and, with it, their preparation to live in a tolerant society, where fellow citizens hold different views.Read more
Video-sharing platform TikTok has banned LiveAction from advertising pro-life messages
Mesa, AZ – The administrators of the largest social media companies in the world are continuing to censor viewpoints of individuals and organizations with which they disagree, this time targeting pro-life messengers. LiveAction is the largest pro-life organization on the internet, reaching over 5 million people through their website and their social media platforms, but now the world’s top video-sharing service has banned the group from sharing their messages. TikTok, a Chinese-owned company that has come under intense scrutiny for their allegedly collecting personal data from users via their mobile phone app, continues to provide unfettered access to pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood, but have decided to limit the reach of LiveAction, which uses the platform to reach out to pregnant women considering abortion.Read more
Nearly 2,500 free speech defenders have taken action on HR7806. Can we count on you to make your voice heard, as well?
The World Health Organization has been a prime instigator of egregious violations of Free Speech and our First Amendment rights since the pandemic began in January 2020:
- Massive censorship and rejection of any scientific evidence that refutes their pre-conceived narrative
- Fostering a cancel culture that causes material harm to scientists, doctors and professionals who are opposed to WHO's pseudo-scientific policies
- Promotion of failed policies such as wearing face masks, social distancing, limiting assembly, lockdowns and more
Do you ever feel like you’re living in the Twilight Zone?
Especially lately, doesn’t it seem like something is really wrong? Covid policies don’t make logical sense, the balance of power within government seems to have disappeared and nationwide crime isn’t punished (while truthful speech and worship is). Something has changed in the America that we grew up in and thought we could trust.Read more
We frequently hear that email gets lost in the so-called "Junk Mail" folder or not even delivered at all. Now we know one big reason why this is happening: Google's Gmail is flagging email it doesn't want you to see so that it diverts as spam directly to the proverbial round file. It doesn't matter if the email was originally sent from a Gmail account or not; it is enough to just pass through a Gmail server to receive the "tag".
This is a most outrageous violation of Free Speech and the First Amendment that we have ever seen, and it is almost impossible to get around it. Gmail currently captures at least 38 percent of total worldwide market share for email services.Read more
This week, Patrick & Bob go deep inside the exciting story of possible changes to Twitter. The Twitter platform has become the national public square for discussion of ideas and societal issues, but it has been woefully one-sided--made so by far Left Twitter administrators and board members. Now billionaire innovator and tech mogul Elon Musk has become the largest shareholder of the Twitter-verse, and he was promptly appointed to the board.Read more
On Episode #9 of Stand and Deliver, Pat gets a personal challenge to stand and deliver after being presented with information that attempted to link him and his late colleague, Professor Antony Sutton, with anti-Semitism. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The incident was resolved by the publication allowing Pat to write a rebuttal giving the facts and demonstrating the error.Read more
On Episode 8 of Stand and Deliver: Pat and Bob discuss a huge revelation in the fight for medical freedom: Dr. Francis Collins, the former Director of the National Institute of Health, was behind the removal of the Great Barrington Declaration. The man in charge of so much of the nation’s science decided to cancel science—that he didn’t agree with. This type of censorship sends major signals to ordinary Americans that if their point of view is not shared by those in power, it will be suppressed and canceled.Read more
Parents designated as domestic terrorists for arguing with school boards may soon be codified in American law. The designation came after the US Department of Justice prompted and received a letter from the National School Boards Association complaining of parents’ behavior at board meetings. Now, a bill in the Judiciary Committee would cement the language as law.Read more
In this week's podcast, Bob and I found some new pronouns for ourselves, to coincide with our new identities of the day, since that's apparently how this is supposed to work. Bob identified as "Your Awesomeness" and I decided that on this day I would be "Graybeard."
Yes, this is exactly insane as it sounds, but in the World of Woke, personal pronouns must be accepted, whatever they may be.Read more
