  1. Exclusive – Brad Parscale: Big Tech Is Meddling with Free Speech… and Elections The biggest of the Big Tech companies are quickly positioning themselves as the internet’s thought police, threatening to stamp out one of America’s most cherished freedoms — the right to free speech. The internet has clearly evolved into the public square of the 21st century. Over the last couple of election cycles, it’s become the number one source for sharing and discussing political and social ideas. Unfortunately, Big Tech monsters like Google and Facebook have become nothing less than incubators for far-left liberal ideologies and are doing everything they can to eradicate conservative ideas and their proponents from the internet. Without any sort of public mandate beyond its own ideological predisposition, the Big Tech leviathan is silencing the silent majority. A leaked internal Google brief with the Orwellian title “The Good Censor” proves this point by laying out the search giant’s plan for controlling the internet. Google begins the report by echoing the liberal contention that free speech is a “social, economic, and political weapon,” calling it a “utopian” idea that’s no longer practical because internet users are “behaving badly.” The report portrays President Trump as one of those free speech offenders and labels him as a conspiracy theorist for pointing out — correctly — that Google manipulated search results to favor Hillary Clinton in 2016. The company also argues that tech companies should distance themselves from the “American tradition” that “prioritizes free speech for democracy, not civility,” and in its place adopt the suppressive “European tradition” that “favors dignity over liberty and civility over freedom” to create “well-ordered spaces for safety and civility.” Google wants to “police [the] tone” and provide so-called “positive guidelines” (read: don’t go against our views, or else) to create online safe spaces. Not wanting to be outdone, Google’s sometime-rival, Facebook, just banned dozens of prominent conservative blogs and pro-Trump pages, including one with more than three million followers, less than a month before the midterm elections. Facebook justified this purge of conservative voices by slapping them with another Orwellian label: “coordinated inauthentic behavior.” It’s unclear whether Facebook would apply that descriptor to its tech cousin Google for recently listing the ideology of the California Republican Party as “nazism.” What is clear is that Facebook’s election-eve purge has been long in the making. Last year, reporters revealed that radical liberal activist groups have been working with Facebook to crush “propaganda and fake news,” which actually means deleting conservative accounts. Even Facebook’s removal of 559 pages and 251 accounts wasn’t enough to satisfy its accomplices, who responded by demanding that the social media giant silence what it calls “far-right disinformation pages.” They are especially concerned about right-leaning “meme pages,” which they want purged from the online community simply because they are much more effective than the left-leaning equivalent. . . . The internet was once a safe haven for political dissenters. Social media platforms and Google’s predominance as a search engine enabled a digital public square where Americans could go to express their grievances, especially in more recent years. It’s where the silent majority had a voice. But during the 2016 election, the forgotten men and women of America who turned to social media because they were sick and tired of the establishment swamp in Washington were inundated with pro-Clinton puff pieces when they were just searching for basic facts. The real and underreported collusion scandal is actually Big Tech’s behind-the-scenes campaign to help Democrats win elections. Though that may not even be the most disturbing thing lurking beneath Silicon Valley’s glass and steel glitz and laid-back, all-organic cafeteria vibe. Astonishingly, it was recently revealed that Google has also locked arms with China, an ideological soulmate of sorts, to create a censored search engine in the large Communist-controlled nation. Vice President Pence was right when he called on Google to stop aiding a tyrannical government that has killed and tortured dissidents with electric shock, rape, and brutal attacks. Facebook, long-reluctant to deliver its service to China for fear of getting caught up in censorship and repression, now appears to be strongly considering joining Google in serving that market, too. No great surprise there. > https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/10/23/exclusive-brad-parscale-big-tech-is-meddling-with-free-speech-and-elections/
  2. Jorge Ramos Defends Migrant Caravan on Fox News ‘There’s No Invasion Here… They’re not even immigrants!’ Fox News on Monday hyped an interview with open borders advocate and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, in which he lectured concerned Americans about a 7,000-strong migrant caravan headed to the United States-Mexico border.
  3. How to join the Intellectual Dark Web — a user’s guide Recently a new meme started doing the rounds on the Internet — the “Intellectual Dark Web”. The phrase was coined by the mathematician Eric Weinstein. It seems to have caught on — showing that whatever it is, quite a few people are recognising it — even though there’s a lot of discussion about what exactly it means. Eric Weinstein My theory in this post is that the phenomenon that’s being loosely described as the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’ is an early, but significant evolutionary leap in public thought and discussion, that has been facilitated by the medium of the internet — and that the spread of the name is the coming to public consciousness (and self-consciousness) of a conversation that is existentially important. Why existentially? Because one of the things that unifies many of the thinkers in the IDW is a belief that the evolutionary strategies that got us to where we are now are unlikely to get us any further — particularly our hard-wired tribalism. That the tools at our disposal are so powerful that the odds of our survival are not high unless we can find a way to move beyond our current level of thinking. As Eric’s brother and evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein says: “Evolution gets you here and it almost certainly will end in a self extinguishing event if you keep playing the evolutionary game. You can’t continue to dance with the one that brought you.” . . . He lists the potential members and the broad principles that unite this very disparate group of thinkers, that includes people from across the political spectrum from Ben Shapiro to Sam Harris, via Claire Lehmann’s new magazine Quillette, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Jordan Peterson. The core principles he lists are: A willingness to engage in conversations with people who have different beliefs and political viewpoints Rejection of identity politics (and a recognition that it has become the dominant ideology in mainstream media discourse) Ideas worth listening to Honoring of freedom of speech People who don’t want them to speak their truth and try to silence them Very usefully, he has also put together a set of links to all the appearances when two or more of the IDW thinkers get together — with a cryptic Bible quote: “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” > https://medium.com/rebel-wisdom/how-to-join-the-intellectual-dark-web-a-users-guide-b60ae0b12b86

  5. President Trump’s Gallup approval rating jumps by 6-percentage points since September OAN Newsroom UPDATED 11:19 AM PT — Tues. Oct. 23, 2018 President Trump’s approval rating has jumped six-points, signaling good news for Republicans just weeks ahead of the midterms. According to the latest Gallup poll, the president’s approval rating hit 44-percent, which is up by six-percentage points since September. This rating is one-percentage point less than his all-time high in the weekly Gallup poll. President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, at Houston Toyota Center, Monday, Oct. 22, 2018, in Houston. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) The survey also found his support among Republicans is growing, with a whopping 85-percent saying they approve of the president’s job performance so far. The findings come as President Trump continues his MAGA rally tour across the country to rally support for GOP candidates ahead of November 6th.
  6. MIND the GAP SPY Last: 273.66 -1.35, -0.49% Stocks fell on Tuesday as corporate results from Caterpillar and 3M disappointed investors, but managed to recover most of their losses as McDonald's and defensive stocks like Procter & Gamble all rose. As of 3:43 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 100 points lower while the S&P 500 was down 0.5 percent. The Nasdaq Composite, meanwhile, traded 0.4 percent lower and was briefly positive. The small-caps Russell 2000 dropped 0.3 percent and turned negative for the year. At its session lows, the Dow had fallen 548.62 points, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq had lost more than 2 percent each. The comeback was led by McDonald's, which rose more than 6 percent on strong earnings, and a half a percent gain in Procter & Gamble. Coca-Cola also rose 0.9 percent while the S&P 500 consumer staples sector climbed 0.6 percent. "We broke below that 2,700 level on the S&P 500 and buyers came out of the woodworks," said Jeff Kilburg, CEO of KKM Financial. "I think people were waiting for this and are now more comfortable" buying at these levels. But while he finds the move to be impressive, Kilburg said there will be more volatility moving forward. Shares of 3M fell as much as 8.4 percent before trading about 3.3 percent lower. Its quarterly earnings and revenue missed expectations. The company also trimmed its earnings outlook for 2018. The latest bout of selling comes during the busiest week of the earnings season, with more than 150 members of the S&P 500 set to report. Of the companies that have reported thus far, 79.6 percent have topped analyst estimates for earnings, according to FactSet. > https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/23/dow-set-for-triple-digit-losses-at-the-open-amid-rising-global-tensions.html
  7. Faster than a speeding Bullet? Able to leap tall walls... 1000 MILES AWAY... WHY ISN'T MEX STOPPING THEM? TAPACHULA, Mexico -- As thousands of Central American migrants continue their long walk to the U.S. border, prompting daily condemnations from President Donald Trump, the Mexican government has had to decide: Are Trump's threats enough to prompt an intervention? For now, Mexican police have merely stepped aside as the caravan has passed, watching first as migrants took rafts across the river that separates the country from Guatemala, and then as they continued by foot along the main highway, chanting, "Si, se pudo," or "Yes, we did it." "You have Trump's government pressing Mr. Peña Nieto's government to deter or stop the flows, but on the other hand, you have the pressure of public opinion and the new government saying you should treat the newcomers with dignity," said Daniel Millan, a former spokesman in President Enrique Peña Nieto's government who is now a political consultant. "They are walking a tightrope." Mexico's incoming foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said Monday on Mexican radio that it would be a "big mistake" for the Mexican government to use its own armed forces to try to stop the caravan. "It would be inadmissible in Mexico to use the army against these people," he said, adding that he didn't think Peña Nieto's government was considering that step. "We would not be in agreement with that at all." After a meeting with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland in Ottawa on Monday, he added that his administration would offer more work visas for Central Americans. "We are going to invest in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador," he said. Peña Nieto addressed the caravan on Friday when he said, "Mexico does not allow people to enter our territory illegally and much less so violently." That day, on the bridge connecting Mexico and Guatemala, Mexican police fired tear gas at the migrants, closing the official border as film crews and photographers captured their actions. But just next to the bridge, police watched as thousands of migrants crossed the border illegally by raft, settling for the night in the main plaza of the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. Still, the images on the bridge, at least for that moment, appeared to impress conservatives in the United States. "I want to thank the Mexican officials and the Mexican police for putting their lives on the line," said conservative commentator Laura Ingraham on Fox News on Friday night. "I think this is the best Mexico has ever been," said former congressman and Trump supporter Newt Gingrich on Ingraham's show. But in Mexico, the images were seen differently. Mexican political analyst Carlos Bravo Regidor captured the reaction of many here, tweeting sarcastically: "The wall already exists. It's called Mexico. Congratulations, Mr. Trump." On Sunday afternoon, there was yet another test. A convoy of police officers, wearing riot gear and carrying shields, headed for the migrant caravan, ready to form a barricade that would block the more than 5,000 Central Americans headed north. "We're here to enforce the laws of Mexico," one police officer said. "You can't just pass through our country without permission." When the migrants approached the police checkpoint, officers pleaded with them to apply for legal status in Mexico. There were empty buses ready to take them for processing. A police helicopter swooped overhead. The caravan paused briefly as the migrants talked among themselves. Maybe Mexican authorities would give them temporary visas, they thought, or maybe it was a trick, a sneaky way for Mexico to deport the migrants en masse. "Vamos!" several migrants yelled, and they walked through the police checkpoint. The police did not stop them. Instead, officers threw their riot shields in a bus and drove away. The caravan continued, undeterred. DEMS SILENT... SECOND migrant caravan heads for USA... Previously Deported Join...
  8. COOK REPORT: Dems to take House Today, we're changing ratings in ten districts, including eight where Democrats' position has improved. Democrats now have a clear advantage in 17 GOP-held seats and Republicans have an advantage in two Democratic-held seats. If the 30 Toss Ups were to break evenly between the parties (15 seats apiece), Democrats would score a net gain of 29 seats, six more than the 23 they need to retake the majority. We continue to believe anywhere from a 20 to 40 seat Democratic gain is possible, but right now the likeliest outcome is a Democratic gain of between 25 and 35 seats.

  9. Shut down the Spin machines! GOOGLEFACEBOOKTWITTER staffs bet blue... UPDATE: ILLEGALS TO VOTE IN SAN FRAN... President Trump has repeatedly called out Google, Facebook and Twitter for liberal bias. Two weeks until the midterms, it would appear he may have had a point. Employees of the tech giants have given a total of $2.4 million to House and Senate candidates, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Of that, only $176,000 - less than 8 percent - went to Republicans. By comparison, in the last midterms in 2014, Google, Facebook and Twitter workers gave a total of $838,000 to congressional candidates, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Of that, $679,000 went to Democrats and $259,000 went to Republicans. In July, President Trump accused Twitter of “shadow banning” prominent Republicans. “Not good,” he tweeted. He also accused Google in a series of tweets in August of playing up negative articles about him in search results.
