Twitter Removes Trump Campaign's Tribute Video to George Floyd

Twitter continues its campaign of censorship against President Donald Trump, this time banning a tribute video to George Floyd posted by the official Team Trump campaign account. Twitter claims it took down the tribute to Floyd in “response to a report from a copyright holder.”

The video, which Twitter says it took down in “response to a report from a copyright holder,” condemns Floyd’s death as a “grave tragedy,” that “should never have happened.”

It also condemns rioters and looters, saying they have “nothing to do with justice or peace,” and highlighting the damage done to small minority-owned businesses. It condemns “antifa and other radical left-wing groups.”

“The mobs are devastating the life’s work of good people and destroying their dreams. It harms those who have the least. We cannot and must not allow a small group of criminals and vandals to wreck our cities and lay waste to our communities.”

The video can still be watched on YouTube:

“This incident is yet another reminder that Twitter is making up the rules as they go along,” said Trump spokesman Andrew Clark, in a comment to The Hill. “From the dubious removal of the hilarious Nickelback video to capricious fact checks and manipulated media labels to questionable claims of copyright, Twitter has repeatedly failed to explain why their rules seem to only apply to the Trump campaign but not to others. Censoring out the president’s important message of unity around the George Floyd protests is an unfortunate escalation of this double standard.”

This is the latest act of censorship against the President in a series of rapid escalations by Twitter. In the past two weeks, the platform has “fact-checked” a factually valid tweet from the President about the danger of fraud in vote-by-mail, and has censored the accounts of both President Trump and the White House for a tweet attacking “thugs” for “dishonoring the memory of George Floyd” and warning “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

As noted in Clark’s comment, Twitter previously blacklisted a meme video posted by Trump based on a copyright claim from the music group Nickelback.

Meanwhile, Twitter has allowed its platform to be used to coordinate looting  against shopping districts, and has taken hours, sometimes days to address violent threats from Antifa and supporters of Black Lives Matter.

The company also recently censored the account of Republican congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for suggesting that Antifa be treated the same way that Middle Eastern terrorists are treated, and the account of Michelle Malkin, for tweeting that deadly force should be used against violent criminals.

Scientists Discover That The One Big Assumption That Everyone Has Been Making About COVID-19 May Be Dead Wrong

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream: Over the past several months, there has been a tremendous amount of debate about almost every aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic.  People have been eager to debate about the severity of the virus, they have been eager to debate about the wisdom of the lockdowns, and they have been eager to debate about the effectiveness of wearing masks.  But the one thing that everyone could pretty much agree on is that eventually this pandemic would end.  Virtually all of us assumed that one way or another eventually most of the population would develop COVID-19 antibodies and that once we got to that point the pandemic would fizzle out.  Unfortunately, it appears that was not a safe assumption to make. Yes, those that have had COVID-19 do develop antibodies. But two new scientific studies have discovered that those antibodies start to fade very, very quickly. For example, a study that was recently conducted in China found that more than 90 percent of COVID-19 patients experience steep declines in COVID-19 antibodies “within 2 to 3 months”… A new study from China showed that antibodies faded quickly in both asymptomatic and symptomatic COVID-19 patients during convalescence,

Burger King Promotes Green New Deal in Ad Slamming Cow Farts

A new ad for fast-food chain Burger King claims bovine flatulence is making the earth hotter, a notion previously addressed in the radical left’s Green New Deal proposals. “Cow farts & burps are no laughing matter,” states the ad promoted on social media. “They release methane, contributing to climate change. That’s why we’re working to change our cows’ diet by adding lemongrass to reduce their emissions by approximately 33%.” cow farts & burps are no laughing matter. they release methane, contributing to climate change. that’s why we’re working to change our cows’ diet by adding lemongrass to reduce their emissions by approximately 33%. learn about our ongoing study: https://t.co/kPCXpjfbGL #CowsMenu pic.twitter.com/DnmF8gVVL0 — Burger King (@BurgerKing) July 14, 2020 The burger giant plans to launch their new burgers in select liberal cities. “Whopper sandwiches with reduced methane emissions beef to be sold, while supplies last, at select US restaurants in Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and Portland.” The company’s goal of reducing cow fart emissions is in line with the far left’s stated plan to reduce “emissions from cows,” as stated in a “Green New Deal FAQ” 10-year plan that appeared on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY)

Gary Shilling: The Social Security’s Funding Crisis Has Arrived

Authored by A. Gary Shilling, originally published in Bloomberg Opinion The Social Security Trust Fund has done quite well in recent years, due to the postwar babies’ surge into the labor force in the last decades of the 20th century while retirees from the low-birth rate Great Depression years were drawing relatively few benefits. The combination of these two forces pushed the Social Security Trust Fund balance from about zero in 1980 to $2.9 trillion today. But now, the coronavirus pandemic threatens to undo all those gains, and without swift action by the government a new crisis may be at hand. The fund’s Trustees noted in an April report that net inflows into the Trust Fund will turn negative next year, commencing a demise that will see the Trust Fund go broke in 2035. Then, payroll taxes will cover only 79% of promised retiree benefits. Here’s the troubling part: “The projections and analyses in this year’s report do not reflect the potential effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Social Security program,” the Trustees stated in the annual report. Clearly, benefits will increase as more workers retire early or claim disability while payroll taxes swoon with the drop in employment. Social Security

Nick Cannon Says White People ‘True Savages’, ‘Closer To Animals’

Actor Nick Cannon launched into a dehumanizing racist tirade about white people on a recent episode of his podcast, charging that they’re “closer to animals” and “a little less.” In the “Cannon’s Class” podcast from June 30th, Cannon told rapper and former Public Enemy member Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin that white people were genetically inferior to black people because they lacked melanin in their skin. “Let’s get down to what it really is then – we talk about the power of melanated [sic] people, when we talk about who we really are as gods and…melanin is so power [sic], and it connects us in a way that the reason why they fear black, the reason why fear us is because the lack that they have of it,” Cannon said. Nick Cannon says white people are “a little less,” “closer to animals,” “the true savages,” “acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil.” When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8 — Adam Ford (@Adam4d) July 14, 2020 Maintain peak vigilance by taking advantage of our latest sale now! “However they got the power, the lack of compassion – melanin comes with compassion, melanin
