The same government agencies involved in the Russia hoax worked in meetings with the tech industry’s most influential companies to ensure there is no foreign influence and no fake news during the 2018 midterm elections. These intelligence agencies are now working with big tech to censor the internet for the 2020 election. As you will see below, the FEC also plays a part in targeting conservatives to censor.
For the midterm elections in 2018 representatives from Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Oath, Snap, Yahoo and Twitter met with the FBI and Homeland Security at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California headquarters. The World Socialist Web Site is concerned that their material will be censored as they are often out of step with the DNC and their “mainstream media” outlets. In fact, they fear they are the REAL target of censorship. Conservatives who experienced the lion’s share of censorship since the 2016 election would beg to disagree. Facebook is on the lookout for any social media that “sow seeds of discord” and in general, they are all concerned about foreign agents planting fake news in social media. As a result, “The gang of two hundred” is a group of conservative twitter users who were all banned, after false accusations of being Russian agents.
Big tech repeated the meeting with government agents to map out censorship plans for the 2020 election. “Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft have met with officials at Homeland Security, the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to discuss how to prepare for the 2020 US presidential election … in response to a shared threat.” These discussions also took place at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
In addition to the Internet censorship of Big Tech, under the direction of Chair Ann M. Ravel, the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) attempted to censor conservative websites like The Drudge Report and Breitbart. They even tried to censor Sean Hannity. But the three Democrats on the FEC attempting to censor the conservatives were stopped by the votes of the three Republicans members on the committee. “A former Democratic chair of the Federal Election Commission [Ravel] who repeatedly rejected charges she was targeting Republicans and conservative websites like the Drudge Report has admitted that the agency has an anti-GOP bias.” Ravel explained that the cases that come up for FEC review originate with watchdog groups which are three to one anti-Republican. See the interview with Ravel recounted in the Washington Examiner.
