by John P. Curran “Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution specifically says that Congress is the only body that can “coin money and regulate the value thereof.” The US Constitution has never been amended to allow anyone other than Congress to coin and regulate currency. So what’s the Federal Reserve? In 1910 […]

Facebook issued, and later deleted, a new policy stating its position supporting violence against banned figures like Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones, both of whom have been banned from the platform.
The update went live on the site’s Community Standards page before being retracted, following widespread online backlash.
The update read:
“Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:
Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or
Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization
or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations
or is described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses, wherein criminal/predator status has been established by media reports, market knowledge of news event, etc.” (Emphasis added).
In May, Facebook issued bans for a number of conservative political pundits including Paul Joseph Watson, whom they designated a “dangerous individual.”
“[It] is now “progressive” to allow a handful of corporate monopolists to control who has free speech and what opinions they can communicate,” wrote Watson of his ban. “What was the point of the trials of humanity over the past 300 years if we were just going to end up with some little nerds in California dictating the terms of human civilization to us from behind their MacBook screens?”
Paul Joseph Watson
With the recent update, Facebook ostensibly deemed it permissible for its users to issue threats against Watson and other “dangerous individuals,” who have been cast alongside ISIS and other terrorist organizations, some of which continue to maintain large presences on the platform, including jihadist organizations like Hezbollah and Boko Haram, and the left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Pages dedicated to these organizations can be easily found by typing their names into Facebook’s built-in search engine.
“The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal. They are painting a target on my back.” – Paul Joseph Watson
As Watson says, violent threats issued against him on the platform are still considered illegal under U.K. law regardless of Facebook’s stance on the matter.
“The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal,” he wrote. “They are painting a target on my back.”
Following a backlash on social media, Facebook has modified the policy update. The company issued a statement to explain that the language it previously used was “imprecise.”
“The language we previously used to describe our policies against violence and incitement was imprecise. We have since replaced it to more clearly explain the policy and underlying rationale,” Facebook stated. “In some cases, we see aspirational or conditional threats directed at terrorists and other violent actors (e.g. Terrorists deserve to be killed), and we deem those non credible absent specific evidence to the contrary.”
It’s worth noting that in addition to its tacit support of violence against “Dangerous Individuals,” the company also deemed it acceptable to threaten anyone “described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses, wherein criminal/predator status has been established by media reports.”
In other words, if you’ve been judged guilty in the court of public opinion, you’re fair game.

One Third Of Americans See Media As “Enemy of the People”
The propaganda, lies, and social manipulations are finally being recognized for what they are!
CNN and other media outlets have been caught in too many lies… the people are waking up.
Although leftists screamed when President Trump declared a number of news outlets an ‘enemy of the people,’ his remarks are not singular.
In fact, liberal manipulators and propagandists got a shock with a new poll that came our on Monday.
The Hill reported:
One-third of Americans say the news media is “the enemy of the people,” according to a new Hill-Harris X poll survey.
The poll, released Monday, found that the sentiment is strongest among Republican voters. According to the survey, 51 percent of Republicans polled said they thought of the press as “the enemy of the people” compared with 14 percent of Democrats and 35 percent of independents who said the same.
A majority of all respondents overall signaled support for the press, with 67 percent saying that the “news media is an important part of a democracy.”
[Look at the ignorance here… America is not a democracy, it is a representative republic.]
Among those surveyed, respondents were most closely divided on the issue in rural areas. Forty-six percent of rural Americans said they believed the news media to be the “enemy of the people,” compared with 54 percent of those who said the news media is a crucial part of democracy.
The survey comes as American news media grapples with maintaining the public’s trust. According to Gallup, trust in the news media is the highest it has been since 2009, but still remains levels last seen in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
President Trump regularly derides news coverage he dislikes as “fake news,” using the label to demean the press at campaign rallies, but has also labeled specific news outlets the “enemy of the people.”
The remarks have drawn criticism from those who have urged him to tone down his attacks on the media, particularly in the wake of recent threats and violence against journalists.
The Hill-Harris poll was conducted June 29-30, 2019 with a sample of 1,000 registered voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
Finally! People are waking up to the fact that these liberal media giants intend to usher in complete slavery for the masses… and the elite think they will rule us.
President Donald Trump has a message for illegal immigrants who are unhappy in US detention centers: if you don’t like them, stay home. The president took to Twitter with his message for illegal aliens following Democratic lawmakers, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, visiting a detention facility in Texas and running to the media about complaints they heard […]
