Big Tech’s midterm defensive crouch

Google , Meta , and Twitter aren’t on any 2022 midterm ballot. But they might as well be.

The influential tech platforms are drawing as much scrutiny as any candidate for Senate, House governor, and the slew of down-ballot offices voters will choose on Nov. 8. The burden is on the tech companies to navigate the election scene fairly and impartially after there were legions of complaints that they had tilted in a partisan direction over the past few campaign cycles.

Campaign season 2022 already has included lots of tech-focused political grandstanding.

“Big Tech companies shouldn’t be allowed to silence political opponents. They shouldn’t be allowed to work with the CCP. And they shouldn’t be allowed to manipulate information to change election outcomes,” tweeted Arizona Republican Senate nominee Blake Masters.

On the other side of the political spectrum, the reelection website of Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) touts his investigation of “the four dominant firms in the digital economy.”

Candidates engage in the “techlash” because it’s a base-pleasing issue. But it’s likely not a persuading one for most voters. The Democratic “big is bad” message and the Republican accusations of viewpoint discrimination against conservatives may be red meat for activists and partisans, but polls indicate tech issues don’t resonate with most voters.

A left-of-center tech trade group, the Chamber of Progress, recently polled voters in battleground states Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire. The results show inflation, the economy, and reproductive rights topped the list of voter priorities. Regulating tech companies came in last, with 1% responding it was their top priority. A poll from right-leaning tech trade group NetChoice earlier this year produced similar results.

Voters may not have the enthusiasm for regulating tech companies the way politicians do, but in the wake of backlash over the 2016 and 2020 elections, the industry is in a defensive crouch about how their platforms might be blamed for the midterm outcomes. If Republicans lose, many will blame online bias against conservatives. And if the Democrats' losses are bigger than expected, they will likely blame “misinformation” that was allowed to remain and circulate online. Tech companies don’t want to get caught in that crossfire again and face increased threats of regulation or breakup.

Testing My New Camera

Just testing out my new camera... Nothing super important. ;-) I bought a new camera for Christmas and wanted to see if I could get it working on a live stream.

My Thoughts About The FTX / Democrat Money Laundering Scheme

I saw a tweet this morning that really opened my eyes to something that not enough people are talking about that is related to this FTX scandal. In this video I give a little bit of backstory for anyone who isn’t following the FTX situation, and then dive into what this tweet said and my thoughts about it.

Podcast: Tech Pundits React to Elon's Purchase of Twitter

Good evening, Patriots!

OK, ok... We've all heard the talking heads crying about Elon buying Twitter. However, that's not what this week's podcast is about. I decided to give you all the arguments that liberal tech news "journalists" are making about Elon buying Twitter. It's a somewhat different take than you may have heard elsewhere. You may find that people who report on the tech news space have a bit of a different perspective on this from the folks that focus on CRT / wokeness all day long.

This is the kind of perspective you're not likely to get elsewhere because most people who report on tech news are full blown socialists. So, I hope you enjoy this episode!

God bless!

Parallel Economies Podcast Episode 1

Good evening / morning, Patriots!!

OK, I finally published episode 1 of the podcast. Please don't judge me too harshly. 😉 Hopefully, I'll get better with some experience. In this episode, I talk about Elon Musk's decision to turn down the board seat at Twitter, as well as TRUTH Social's CEO, Devin Nunes responding to a number of articles claiming that TRUTH Social has failed already. BTW, there's also a bit of breaking news in here, about the release date of the TRUTH Social Web App. The episode is just over 13 minutes long. Hopefully it came out, OK. I literally just finished exporting it. I hope you like it. ;-)

I'm off to bed!!!

PayPal shuts account of group who fought to keep schools open during pandemic
Another casualty of the recent PayPal purge.

UsForThem, a UK parents’ group that campaigned to keep schools open during the pandemic, has been banned from PayPal because of “the nature of its activities.” The group says that after the ban, it is unable to access thousands of pounds in donations.


“We were completely taken aback to learn that PayPal was discontinuing our services ‘due to the nature of [our] activities’. No prior warning or meaningful explanation was given, and despite them saying we could withdraw our remaining balance, we cannot,” said the group’s co-founder Molly Kingsley to The Telegraph.

“UsForThem has only ever been fully transparent about the organization’s aims, and our mission statement is on a prominent page of our website for all to read. That makes clear that our core focus is campaigning for children to be prioritized in public decision-making.

“If something about that mission offends PayPal, why could they not be transparent about that? For a small volunteer organization, this has a significant impact on our ability to operate, as presumably was intended.

“It is extremely hard not to draw the conclusion that this is a politically motivated cancellation of an organization that in some way offends PayPal.”

Toby Young, Free Speech Union’s founder, also claimed PayPal banned his account for political motives. The Free Speech Union’s account was also banned, as well as the account of the non-profit Gays Against Groomers.
