International Group Makes an attempt to Finish Free Speech Worldwide


For those who suspected censorship was being coordinated on a world scale, you’d be proper. The Worldwide Grand Committee on Disinformation1 (IGCD) consists of “a global array of legislators, coverage advisers, and different specialists” who work collectively “to forge worldwide alliances that deliver shared, efficient methods into the battle in opposition to on-line disinformation.” What may presumably go unsuitable?

The thought behind the IGCD got here from 4 members of the British and Canadian Parliaments: Damian Collins and Ian Lucas from the U.Okay., and Bob Zimmer and Nathaniel Erskine-Smith from Canada. The primary session of the IGCD occurred on the finish of November 2018, in order that they’ve been quietly working within the background for a while already.

Since then, they’ve held conferences in Canada and the U.Okay. and hosted seminars within the U.S., attended by non secular leaders, journalists, know-how executives, “material specialists” and parliamentary leaders from 21 nations (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Eire, Latvia, Mexico, Morocco, Singapore, St. Lucia, Sweden, the U.Okay. and the U.S.)

In line with the IGCD, the group features as a “discussion board for data sharing, collaboration and harmonization of insurance policies to … obtain frequent targets amongst democratic states. By no means thoughts the truth that democracy can not exist with out freedom of speech.”

Logistics for the group are supplied by an initiative referred to as “Reset,”2 which seems like a not-so-subtle reminder that censorship is a requirement for The Nice Reset. They know individuals would by no means go together with the Nice Reset plan if allowed to freely talk about the ramifications.

‘On-line Security Invoice’ Seeks to Shut Down Counternarratives

The IGCD helps make clear the technocracy entrance group often known as the Facilities for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH),3 seeing how one of many CCDH’s board members, Damian Collins MP, can also be one of many founders of the IGCD. Each teams had been fashioned in 2018 and clearly have the identical targets and agenda.

A type of targets is to eradicate free speech on-line, which is what the U.Okay.’s proposed “On-line Security Invoice” would obtain. Not surprisingly, Collins is a part of the On-line Security Invoice Committee, charged with inspecting the Invoice “line by line to verify it’s match for goal.”4

In an August 11, 2021, weblog submit, Collins requested for the general public’s assist to trace down counternarratives, taking screenshots of the offending materials and emailing it to him. “Until dangerous content material is reported, whether or not it’s horrible photos of self-harm, violent or extremist content material or anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, it may in any other case be unknowable to regulators and governments,” he stated.

It’s unimaginable to overlook the truth that Collins is lumping “anti-vaccine” content material in with violent and extremist content material that have to be censored and, in actuality, that’s in all probability one of many prime classes of knowledge this invoice seeks to manage.

As reported by iNews,5 “The Prime Minister [Boris Johnson] has repeatedly insisted the powers contained inside the laws would assist crack down on … anti-vaccine disinformation.”

On-line Security Invoice Is ‘Catastrophic for Free Speech’

Whereas some would possibly suppose it’s a good suggestion to spoon feed individuals “appropriate” details about vaccines, it’s vital to understand that whereas vaccines are the difficulty of at present, tomorrow one other matter that’s close to and pricey to your coronary heart might be deemed out of bounds for public dialogue. So, supporting censorship of any form is a slippery slope that’s sure to come back again to chunk you whenever you least count on it.

As reported by BBC Information,6 the “Authorized to Say. Authorized to Kind” marketing campaign warns that if the On-line Security Invoice turns into regulation, Massive Tech companies might be ready of extraordinary energy:

“Whereas the group helps the invoice’s intention of making certain on-line platforms take away photos of kid sexual abuse, terrorist materials and content material which incites racial hatred and violence, it fears different provisions will adversely have an effect on free speech …

Underneath the invoice, Ofcom [the British Office of Communications] might be given the facility to dam entry to websites and nice firms which don’t shield customers from dangerous content material as much as £18m, or 10% of annual world turnover, whichever is the larger.

Campaigners declare this offers tech companies an incentive to ‘over-censor,’ and ‘successfully outsources web policing from the police, courts and Parliament to Silicon Valley’ …

Mr. [MP David] Davis described the invoice as a ‘censor’s constitution.’ He added: ‘Foyer teams will be capable to push social networks to take down content material they view as not politically appropriate, regardless that the content material is authorized’ …

Campaigners are additionally involved that know-how firms might use synthetic intelligence to determine dangerous content material. That, they are saying, might introduce racial biases and can wrongly censor language, ‘particularly relating to irony-loving Brits.’”

US Democrats Assault Free Speech

In the meantime, within the U.S., the Well being Misinformation Act, launched by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Sen. Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., would droop Communications Decency Act Part 230 protections in situations the place social media networks are discovered to spice up “anti-vaccine conspiracies,” and maintain them accountable for such content material. In a July 22, 2021, article, Tech Crunch reported:7

“The invoice would particularly alter Part 230’s language to revoke legal responsibility protections within the case of ‘well being misinformation that’s created or developed by means of the interactive laptop service’ if that misinformation is amplified by means of an algorithm.

The proposed exception would solely kick in throughout a declared nationwide public well being disaster, like the appearance of COVID-19, and wouldn’t apply in regular instances. The invoice would process the Secretary of the Division of Well being and Human Providers (HHS) with defining well being misinformation.”

As with the British On-line Security Invoice, the Well being Misinformation Act is an open portal for abuses. Mockingly, the Act truly depends on misinformation to make its case. It particularly mentions the CCDH’s “Disinformation Dozen” report,8 which falsely claims a dozen people, myself included, are accountable for a majority of the “anti-vax misinformation” being shared on social media platforms.

‘Disinformation Dozen’ Have Negligible Attain

In the meantime, in an August 18, 2021, assertion,9,10 Fb’s vice chairman of content material coverage, Monika Bickert, said there’s no proof to help the CCDH’s claims, and that the individuals named by the CCDH as being accountable for the overwhelming majority of vaccine misinformation on social media had been in reality solely accountable for a tiny fraction — 0.05% — of all vaccine content material on Fb. Right here’s an excerpt from Bickert’s assertion:11

“In latest weeks, there was a debate about whether or not the worldwide downside of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation might be solved just by eradicating 12 individuals from social media platforms. Individuals who have superior this narrative contend that these 12 persons are accountable for 73% of on-line vaccine misinformation on Fb. There isn’t any proof to help this declare …

Actually, these 12 persons are accountable for about simply 0.05% of all views of vaccine-related content material on Fb. This contains all vaccine-related posts they’ve shared, whether or not true or false, in addition to URLs related to these individuals.

The report12 upon which the defective narrative is predicated analyzed solely a slim set of 483 items of content material over six weeks from solely 30 teams, a few of that are as small as 2,500 customers. They’re on no account consultant of the a whole bunch of hundreds of thousands of posts that individuals have shared about COVID-19 vaccines previously months on Fb.

Additional, there isn’t a clarification for the way the group behind the report recognized the content material they describe as ‘anti-vax’ or how they selected the 30 teams they included of their evaluation. There is no such thing as a justification for his or her declare that their information represent a ‘consultant pattern’ of the content material shared throughout our apps.”

It’s fairly clear that the CCDH exists to manufacture “proof” that’s then used to destroy the opposition as a way to management the knowledge. As such, it’s actually nothing greater than a entrance group for the a lot bigger, world IGCD, which goals to close down free speech the world over.

The ‘Whistleblower’ That Isn’t

One of many soiled tips used to close down free speech is to make use of pretend whistleblowers. Frances Haugen, the previous Fb worker turned “whistleblower” who testified earlier than Congress October 5, 2021, accusing her former employer of aiding evildoers, isn’t an precise whistleblower.

She is being legally represented by a agency referred to as Whistleblower Assist, based by a nationwide safety lawyer, Mark Zaid, who is understood for betraying his purchasers and siding with prosecutors.13

Whistleblower Assist is funded by tech billionaire and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, and the Reset Initiative, which offers logistics for the IGCD, is a part of The Omidyar Group of philanthropies.14 That tells you every little thing that you must know concerning the supposed goal behind Haugen’s testimony. As reported by The Grey Zone:15

“Haugen emphasised in her testimony that she ‘doesn’t wish to break up’ Fb; she was merely in search of elevated ‘content material moderation’ to root out ‘extremism’ and ‘(mis/dis)data’ … Haugen seems to be little greater than a device in a far-reaching plan to extend the U.S. nationwide safety state’s management over one of many world’s hottest social media platforms.”

Briefly order, Haugen managed what has been unimaginable for different whistleblowers. She secured audiences with lawmakers in France, the U.Okay. and the European Union to debate the necessity for extra censorship.

Darkish Cash

Over the previous yr, the CCDH’s fabricated “Disinformation Dozen” report has been repeatedly used as the inspiration for calls to strip Americans of their First Modification free speech rights. It’s been utilized by attorneys common and elected politicians, and it’s been cited in all of the Massive Tech hearings.16

Other than being immediately tied to the worldwide IGCD (keep in mind, Collins is on the board of each the IGCD and the CCDH), the CCDH can also be related to Arabella Advisors — probably the most highly effective darkish cash lobbying group within the U.S.17 — by means of CCDH chairman Simon Clark.18 (“Darkish cash” is a time period which means the identities of these funding the group are saved secret.)

Clark is a senior fellow with the Middle for American Progress,19 the place he makes a speciality of “right-wing home terrorism” (are we to imagine there’s no such factor as left-wing terrorism?), which is funded by a liberal Swiss billionaire named Hansjörg Wyss.20,21

Wyss additionally funds Arabella Advisors, which runs numerous short-term entrance teams that pop out and in of existence as wanted for any given marketing campaign.22 Reporter Hayden Ludwig has described the interior workings of Arabella Advisors and the affect of the “darkish cash” flowing by means of it:23

“Arabella’s nonprofits act because the left’s premier pass-through funders for skilled activists. Massive foundations — together with the Gates, Buffett, and Ford Foundations — have laundered billions of {dollars} by means of this community, washing their identities from the {dollars} that go to push radical insurance policies on America.

However the true juice from these nonprofits comes from the huge array of ‘pop-up teams’ they run — referred to as so as a result of they consist virtually solely of slick web sites that will pop into existence at some point and come out the following, normally as soon as the marketing campaign is thru.

We’ve counted over 350 such entrance teams pushing every little thing from federal funding of abortion to overhauling Obamacare to packing the Supreme Courtroom. Arabella is as darkish as ‘darkish cash’ will get. It’s additionally the prime instance of liberal hypocrisy over nameless political spending, working in almost whole obscurity …

As extra of this huge internet of teams — accountable for churning out almost $2.5 billion since its creation — has come into focus, one factor’s change into clear: When a particular curiosity donor goes to Arabella, they’re anticipating a political payoff.”

You possibly can study extra about Arabella Advisors and its hidden affect over U.S. politics by means of pop-up entrance teams within the Capital Analysis Middle sequence, “Arabella’s Lengthy Conflict In opposition to Trump’s Division of the Inside.”24

An Open Conflict on the Public

We’re now in a scenario the place asking legitimate questions on public well being measures are equated to acts of home terrorism. It’s unbelievable, but right here we’re.

Over the previous two years, the rhetoric used in opposition to those that query the sanity of utilizing unscientific pandemic countermeasures, comparable to face masks and lockdowns, or share information displaying that COVID-19 gene therapies are actually dangerous public well being coverage, has change into more and more violent.

Dr. Peter Hotez has publicly referred to as for cyberwarfare assaults on Americans who disagree with official COVID narratives, and this vile rhetoric was revealed within the prestigious science journal Nature, of all locations.25 His article ought to have set off alarm bells on the CCDH, had been the CCDH truly about defending us from on-line hate.

However the CCDH isn’t about defending the general public from hate. In basic Orwellian Doublespeak, it truly exists to foster and create it. By the way, the journal Nature additionally revealed an article by CCDH founder Imran Ahmed, wherein he discusses the necessity to destroy the “anti-vaxx business.” How he, who has no medical credentials, managed to fulfill publication necessities is a thriller, and simply goes to point out we can not even belief a few of our most esteemed medical journals.

In his article, Ahmed flat out lied, saying he “attended and recorded a non-public, three-day assembly of the world’s most distinguished anti-vaxxers.” Removed from being “personal,” the assembly in query was truly a public on-line convention, open to anybody and everybody around the globe, with entry to the recorded lectures a part of the sign-up payment.

The truth that Ahmed lied about such an simply verifiable level tells you every little thing that you must know concerning the CCDH — and by extension the IGCD, which it clearly is working with. In the long run, lies can not stand as much as the reality, which is exactly why the CCDH and IGCD are working extra time to “harmonize” legal guidelines throughout the democratic world to censor any and all counternarratives.

Like I stated earlier than, proper now, it’s primarily about silencing questions and inconvenient truths concerning the COVID photographs, however sooner or later, these legal guidelines will permit them to silence dialogue on any matter that threatens undemocratic rule by globalists.

To keep away from such a destiny, we have to be relentless in our pursuit and sharing of the reality, and we should relentlessly demand our elected representatives arise for freedom of speech and different Constitutional rights.
