What a Shock: PayPal Has Cut Off Yet Another Competitor to Tech Monopoly Platforms
Is this all just a coincidence or are tech giants acting in concert to destroy all possible competitors? Bitchute was terminated by PayPal, one assumes, for failing to be heavy-handed with censorship like YouTube is now; but when YouTube itself was less heavy-handed, PayPal didn't attempt to deplatform YouTube. Twitter, too, used to be less heavy-handed, and yet there were no companies working to deplatform them.
One begins to see a pattern that goes like this: the established tech giants establish a censorship guideline, which is taken by other companies, for no good reason, to be the required censorship guideline. Then anyone not conforming to the established tech giants' current censorship policies (and remember, these change all the time) are deplatformed by other tech giants.
You can't say you're not acting in concert when you take Twitter's or YouTube's rules of the day (which can and do change) and then use that as your justification to exclude all competitors to YouTube and Twitter. You're just using their censorship-policies-of-the-month to justify always acting in YouTube's and Twitter's interest. You're just using their censorship policies as cover for eliminating their competitors.
When YouTube and Twitter decide "No conservative speakers at all," will PayPal, MasterCard, and the rest then begin denying services to a conservative competitor start-up?
We need congressional investigations into this, but it won't happen: The Democrats are all-in on censorship and harassing conservatives out of public life (including their jobs), and too many Republicans are simply paid off by Big Tech.
New York Magazine: Maybe It's Time for America to Split Up
Hear, hear... This is why we need Trump to win in 2020. We have two choices: Either we win and they beg us to secede, in which case we're done with them forever, or they win, and they dominate us forever. (They won't let us secede, of course: they mean to "correct" us, preferably as against our will as possible, to increase the pain.)
Mike Stoklasa's Weird Obsession with Paranormal "Reality" TV Shows is Getting Out of Control
Every time he goes into one of these obsession spirals (either about Ghost Adventures or Star Trek) I ask myself: Wait, why do I listen to this guy's opinions again?
Jay Baumann's face says it all: If only I had thought to do a 70 minute review of The Phantom Menace, I wouldn't have to sit here listening to this maniac recount entire episodes of ST:TNG and Ghost Adventures

S.E. Cupp: I Don't Think We Should Be Dunking on My CNN Colleague Michael Avenatti
What a Company Gal! Even Brian Stelter is embarrassed at what a shill she is for CNN. She is the walking embodiment of the Corporate Line. I'll give S.E. Cupp one thing: When you buy her, you own her for life.
By the way, read the replies to get a sense of Cupp's Dumb-Bunny fanclub -- a bunch of conspiratorial lunatics who think this is "all a set-up" arranged by a guy from Gateway Pundit and who have a bad case of lunatic loser hero worship, proclaiming that Michael Avenatti is "too smart for this." So that's Cupp's new demo, and she got it by saying deeply stupid things that made professional rageaholic and propagandist Jeff Zucker smile.
Pitch Meeting: Bohemian Rhapsody
Writing a biopic is super-easy, barely an inconvenience: Just make it all up.
Just as CNN Took Forever to Report on Their Allies Antifa's Menacing of Tucker Carlson, CNN Takes Hours to Report on Their Virtual Correspondent on Trump's Dick, Michael Avenatti
John Sexton Called It: CNN Refused to Run the Story Until They Had the Full Lawyered-Over Bullshit Denial from Their Virtual Permanent Guest Michael "Smack My Bitch Up" Avenatti
CNN Lied in its very headline, claiming this was "Breaking" news when they reported it. No, CNN, it was breaking hours ago. Everyone else had reported it by the time you got your pal's statement. Which turned out to be a not-very-unexpected "I'm like totally innocent and I expect to be fully exonerated or whatever" canned statement. So newsworthy!
I wonder if Chris Cuomo will break out the "Not all punches are bad" defense he used for antifa to cover for his pal Avenatti.
The Soviet Erasure Begins: andycanuck reports: "Ex-Cuomo aide, Juanita Scarlett, has also deleted a now-embarrassing tweet"
Yeah but the many leftwing DC types that slept with him this past year can't erase that shit.
Michael Avenatti Inspirational Message of the Day: "It's not about the size of the man in the fight, it's about the size of the fight in the man. Unless he's just decking a broad. In that case, size doesn't really matter either way. Just give her a good pop and you're good to go."
I just got an email: "I like this Avenatti's style. Real ship-shape and squared-away. Do you think he'd like to see a Phil Collins concert with me?" It's from a guy named Patrick Bateman. I don't know him. But pass on the message if you see Slappy.
LAPD Twitter Feed: We Can Confirm That We Have Arrested Michael "Pimp-Hand" Avenatti on Suspicion of Domestic Violence
#Beatah or #Bette (Italian for "beat" or "hit")
A Women's March chapter declares it will not be #BelievingAllWomen in this case!!!!
Surprisingly enough!!!
Update: Slappy Avenatti's Wife Says It Was NOT Her That Avenatti Beat Up
I don't know if this is real or if she's walking back from a police report she wants to retract. But I guess Slappy might have slapped around a different woman. #Beatah
