How IBM influences policy without spending big money on election campaigns

Corporate money has flooded U.S. elections ever since 2010, when the Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United that business donations amounted to protected free speech under the First Amendment.

But the steady stream of cash slowed earlier this week when several businesses announced they would suspend donations from their political action committees (PACs) after the Jan. 6 riots on the U.S. Capitol. The businesses spanned industries, from Facebook to JPMorgan Chase to Walmart.

The promises were relatively narrow and did not suggest a permanent retreat from election spending. Some businesses only promised to cut spending from politicians who objected to certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, while others said they would reassess all PAC contributions.

But as employees, consumers and shareholders step up pressure on businesses to address their social impact, the announcements represented a significant departure from the status quo.

Amazon hit with class action antitrust lawsuit claiming it colluded with major publishers to illegally drive up ebook prices by 30%

Amazon is facing fresh antitrust scrutiny after consumers filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing the company of illegally colluding with major book publishers to drive up prices for ebooks.
Amazon, which controlled nearly 90% of the ebook market as of 2018, was able to benefit immensely from the higher prices by charging consumers more, according to the lawsuit.
Apple was found guilty in 2013 of colluding with the same five publishers — using a similar pricing practice — to illegally fix ebook prices, and lawmakers in the US and EU have previously criticized Amazon's alleged use of the so-called "most favored nations" clauses.
Several ebook customers on Thursday filed a lawsuit against Amazon accusing it of violating antitrust laws by illegally colluding with the "big five" publishing houses to drive up the prices of ebooks.

Totalitarianism Is Upon Us

Staying alive is, indeed, of paramount importance, but being the most important thing does not mean to the exclusion of everything else.  If there is nothing else to life but trying to stay alive, then life has no meaning.  The refusal to accept the reality that risks are an integral part of life is what leads people to naively believe that an all-powerful central government can keep them safe and well fed, and it is this naïve belief that leads to totalitarianism.

OBEY: Cumulus Media orders all “conservative” talk show hosts to embrace Biden as “president”

George Orwell was certainly right in writing that the dystopian future, which is now the present, would look like this: “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the party is always right.”

We have arrived. The year 2021 has become 1984.

Corporations now at war with America, will help bury evidence of election fraud by paying off reps who hide it

In the aftermath, the voices that felt unheard were ultimately silenced overnight. In this environment of concealment (where the Vice President himself refused to point out the fraud to his colleagues), America and the rest of the world will never fully understand the scope of the election fraud. Not only did activist courts refuse to hear cases based on the merits, but Congress also pushed forward with no debate. Now, as corporations withhold campaign contributions from representatives who dare talk about election fraud, the election process will be even more rigged. Now it is weaponized.

Democrats are now moving quickly to reclassify conservative dissent as “domestic terrorism”

So — how do we know that this legislation is going to be directed solely at Trump supporters and conservative patriots? Simple; it’s because Democrats are pushing for it, and we know from their past attempts to quash conservative talk radio, censor people online, and attack Fox News they don’t much care for dissent from the other side. -- And who seriously believes that this legislation will be applied to the Democrat left’s shock troops — Antifa and BLM?

Long Island to boost security ahead of Inauguration Day

Authorities across Long Island and New York state are boosting security ahead of Inauguration Day.

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran says she's working with police and federal agencies to ensure residents will be safe.

"The intelligence community is working around the clock, and has been working around the clock," says Ryder.

In Suffolk, police tell News 12 they are also gathering intelligence and coordinating with federal agencies to prevent political violence.

Police say they are not aware of any credible threats on Long Island.

No One Is Listening: A Country Divided Against Itself

The U.S. may morph into two nations with the increasingly impoverished helot “deplorables” under the heel of the empowered social justice warriors.

In a recent article Catholic University professor Claes G. Ryn wrote “Few people are really open to persuasion in any case—not just on political subjects but on any subject about which they care and on which they have adopted certain views. Diehard partisans for a certain outlook will refuse to have their beliefs questioned, and so will many others. They will be no less dismissive of a document challenging their opinions if it is full of footnotes and appendixes. Such a document will, indeed, make them resist it even more. As for the relatively few people who are truly open-minded, they will not find another person’s observations dispositive. They will, as they should, want to consider the evidence on a contested matter for themselves.”

One mask good, two masks better: Nearly a year into the pandemic, is advocating double masking really the way to reassure people?

Despite some studies questioning the value of face coverings in halting the spread of Covid-19, those who have recently made it their life’s work to obey the rules anyway are running scared… and suggesting we double up on masks.

To watch the New York Times’ coronavirus coverage over the last few months has been to witness cognitive dissonance in the extreme. Back in August, it admitted that as many as 90 percent of PCR (‘gold standard’) tests might be false positives, but now it clings to those ‘false’ numbers as justification for wearing not one, but two masks.

Twitter Says Internet Shutdowns ‘Violate Basic Human Rights’ — in Uganda

Twitter has spoken out in favor of free speech, and against the shutdown of the Internet — in Uganda.

Twitter’s public policy department tweeted in opposition to reported efforts to shut down internet access ahead of Uganda’s election this week, where President Yoweri Museveni is asking voters for a sixth term. He has been in office for 35 years.

Last week, Twitter banned President Donald Trump from its platform permanently. It also continues to suspend and expel tens of thousands of Trump supporters. Twitter’s main competitor, Parler, was also kicked off Amazon’s servers.

This week, however, Twitter stood up for free speech and the open Internet, arguing that “Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.”
