High Tech Oligarchs threaten democracy
The current electoral campaign differs from that of 2016 in that the media, both conventional and online, has realized its power and has been openly playing a major role in what might well prove to be a victory across the board for the Democratic Party. At least that is the expectation, bolstered by a flood... Read More

Yesterday, Twitter gave the New York Post the AmRen treatment. The right-leaning tabloid published a damning report about how Hunter Biden profited from his father’s influence, but Twitter users got this message if they clicked on the link. Potentially spammy or unsafe. Sure. This is the same message you get if you click on an... Read More
Earlier (2019): “I BEGGED PRESIDENT TRUMP TO DO SOMETHING BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE!” Laura Loomer Appeals To Trump On Tech Totalitarianism (Which Also Threatens VDARE.com) Laura Loomer was right! She was deplatformed by Twitter and Big Tech but turned it into a central plank in her congressional run. However, even after she won the... Read More
Twitter’s action was remarkable show of power over Donald Trump and Republicans. The company can interfere in elections and Republicans won’t do anything. The GOP’s capitulation is humiliating. However, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey (@jack) went further. He recently gave $10 million to Dr. Ibram Kendi and the Center for Antiracist Research. Dr. Kendi’s... Read More
A few days ago I received this warning message from Twitter: “Hi Gilad Atzmon, Your account, @GiladAtzmon has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. I was accused by this anti social network of “violating” their “rules against hateful conduct.” The message took me by surprise as hatred is foreign to me. In fact, I... Read More

As you may know, in 2018 I and American Renaissance sued Twitter after it banned our accounts. After some initial successes, we lost on a couple of crucial rulings and decided not to appeal. Here is the story. In 2011, I started a Twitter account and American Renaissance set up a corporate account. In 2017,... Read More

I’ve taught economics at Indiana University for some twenty-five years (after earlier positions at UCLA, the University of Chicago’s Business School, and Yale Law School), punctuated by sabbatical years visiting the University of Tokyo Economics Department, Oxford’s Nuffield College, Harvard Law School, and the Harvard Economics Department. Lauren Robel is the Provost of Indiana University-Bloomington... Read More

Mnar Muhawesh speaks with journalist Daniel McAdams about being permanently banned from Twitter, social media censorship and more.
Americans, being an insouciant people, are unaware and unconcerned that their addiction to social media supports the Gestapo Police State. Both Twitter and Facebook are mechanisms by which the police state imposes censorship on Americans and casts aside the First Amendment. Social media is also used to isolate truth-tellers and to disappear dissidents who expose... Read More
TWICE HAVE the censors at Twitter kicked me off their anything-but-neutral platform. When these arbiters of right and wrong periodically block my Twitter account, visitors to the site will be greeted with a stark warning: “Caution. This account is temporary restricted.” The snowflakes will be forewarned of “some unusual activity on the account. Do you... Read More

Elites cheer on attacks on children
A day off from school in January should be a happy occasion. Students pray for snow days. But Covington Catholic in Kentucky was closed on Tuesday, January 22, for a different reason: threats of violence. Young white men from Covington Catholic High School were in Washington, D.C., a few days earlier for the March for... Read More
Dear Readers: It is all over the internet and international media that Twitter has suspended my account. This is not the case. I do not use social media. I discovered that a Twitter account was operating in my name. I requested that the account be taken down. I have no recollection of giving anyone permission... Read More

The long-rumored Twitter purge is finally underway. In the guise of confronting “violence,” accounts are being banned by the platform [Twitter Rolls Out New “Hate-Speech Guidelines, WND, December 18, 2017]. Among today’s victims: American Renaissance and its Editor Jared Taylor (you can follow both at Gab.ai). Taylor was accused by Twitter of being “affiliated with... Read More
They blame the clergy. The social network's free discussion contrasts with Riyadh's official line on the rise of radicals
What is the connection between Saudi Arabia and the rise of the Islamic State (Isis) militants? Did the Saudi state and the Gulf monarchies foster the growth of Isis and other jihadi movements in Syria only to find they had created a Frankenstein monster that today threatens the political status quo? Is the House of... Read More
People who follow me know that I stress the three laws of behavioral genetics, starting with the all-important First Law, all human behavioral traits are heritable. OK, but that established, most people aren't necessarily interested in heritability per se; they want to know about changeability. Can the trait in question be changed? Sure, there are... Read More
Or, A Useful—if Inadvertent—Demonstration of the Power of the Information-Freedom Death Star
[Counterpunch kindly ran this piece on its website. However, the formatting gremlins attacked them and some of the quotes I made from Mr. Rogin's article weren't displayed properly, making them look like my words instead of his. This was completely inadvertent and I've asked Counterpunch to correct the error. If necessary, please refer to this... Read More
