No CNN pages are being blocked

um, no one claims they are.

Btw your claims are kinda generic. Sure you're not a bot?

I can't wait for 2059, when the CIA's "covert measures to destabilize Venezuela" are declassified.

That was roughly the timeline for "operation ajax"

They also train Congress. Every freshmen class is taken on a pilgrimage to Netanyahu's office for some 1 on 1 indoctrination.

r/news censored story of renowned Uighur musician Abdurehim Heyit who was killed in a Chinese detention camp. OP confronted the mods, mods openly say they're catering to new Chinese owners, and OP posts a picture of this exchange that is now on the front page by magnora7 in MeanwhileOnReddit

I agree 100%, reddit is heavily manipulated - but a minor stake in a $2+ billion company doesn't change who's running the show. Reddit is still a US company, operating on US soil, and its management and top-admins and hw and servers are all at the physical mercy of only one government - and it's not the Chinese.

Then just hrs after the investment was announced some admins "admit" they censor content to please their new Chinese overlords - I just can't bring myself to believe it. Seems crazy that the old media-manipulation machinery would roll over that easily.

However, if I was a professional perception-controller (with n ntrepid licenses) and I wanted to spook a western audience about the great new menace of China - I would do just that... make fake claims about "them taking over" to trigger a standard "were not gonna let them!" reaction.

That's just my random thoughts. There are so many layers of deception on reddit that I take nothing there at face value.

Should we make the /subscribed page the main home page? by magnora7 in SaidItSurveys

Is this about the recent spike in German posts?

The least disruptive change might be to just exclude non-english posts from the default home page, since most of us won't understand them anyway. And keep everything else as is.

Smells of planned trolling to me.

The idea that Tencent buys <10% of reddit and is able to implement censorship on day 1 is really hard to believe, sorry.

Former US President Carter: Venezuelan Electoral System “Best in the World” by fred_red_beans in Venezuela

[–]bablarb 3 insightful - 2 funny3 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

what's the basis for the claim in the first place?

The Carter Center worked in Venezuela for years as third-party/independent monitors to make sure the elections were free and fair. Just google "carter center venezuela"

Book burnings don't always look like this... by useless_aether in FascismWatch

For another recent example of modern book burning, check out the fate of "gekaufte journalisten" (journalists for hire)

A fake publisher in Oakland made sure the English version never happened. Sinister stuff. Makes one wonder how many other books have been successfully removed in the same stealthy/covert way.

High military command in Venezuela now publicly stating support for Nicolas Maduro. Says military backs Maduro. Without army support, US government backed opposition cannot take control. by salvia_d in WorldPolitics

weird, not a single mention of the 2002 coup anywhere, which was so very similar.

Top question if the US media was free and actually did their job: How much did the "National Endowment for Democracy" pay up this time? In 2002 they brazenly backed the military coup with millions, despite valid & democratic elections.

U.S. will seek extradition of Huawei CFO from Canada by magnora7 in WorldNews

For those who don't know - there's a global push to purge Chinese components from 5G networks, and beyond.

Huawei wasn't bowing (low enough) to US/aipac demands for a total boycott of Iran, so off the market they go.

Not a good day for the free market concept.

Death Of Russiagate? Mueller Team Tied To Mifsud's Network by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

[–]bablarb 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

You know it's a major development when all of mainstream keeps silent about it.

Btw. the J Mifsud story is a good lesson in "connection-baiting", a useful tool for derailing political/social movements:

1) identify junior & ambitious member of staff

2) approach target and present tantalizing offer to make secret connection to power-elite for mutual gain. Stage meeting with fake rep. Target enjoys higher relevancy (and gets to play 007) for a little while.

3) take down target for either: colluding with power-elite - OR denying said collusion

either way target is toast

Very valid point. Lots of other online forums have suffered the same treatment. The attackers usually follow the same script:

1 post something super racist

2 upvote said post to top spot

3 discredit the site by calling them out on racist post - "see this shit they upvote?"

Another factor is surveillance, of course. Only NSA-approved equipment will be used in western 5G networks, for our own safety, I guess.

Nothing is More Racist Than the War on Terror: This weekend Americans were outraged over an incident in which a mob of white kids taunted a Native American elder in Washington, DC.

too true. And what's the natural offspring of this supreme racism?

Neo-colonialism

Both Somalia and Afghanistan are now ruled by (ex) US citizens, hand picked & approved by the cia and flown in from the mother country to rule the new provinces of the empire.

Meanwhile France is back in Mali & Niger, alongside the us...
