I've been working on AntiSocialNews in some way or another for the past year. Ironically, I've made some friends and pissed other people off.
Big Man Tyrone named me "Global Information Tsar of Kekistan" a truly prestigious title that has afforded me many collabs with the Supreme President and he remains my biggest supporter.
Amazing that they have been saying for months what the “WHISTLE-BLOWER” just told congress. Incredible coincidence, right? I mean it couldn’t be just a bunch of bullshit to distract people from the fact they are completely above the law and can silence a US president and blow off a summons from the UK House of Lords, could it?
Could it be them demanding further control over their platforms while trying to use the federal government as a cudgel to beat their competition to death? Hard to say, the one thing that’s clear is the “Whistle-blower” is just a Facebook mouthpiece and not at all counter to their stated corporate goals. Frances Haugen is not a whistleblower. https://youtu.be/Ne622IhYIsM
The last post was over a year ago, following much frustrating coverage of the White House’s Covid-19 briefings.
This page has never meant to be about politics, just looking at the news from a ‘life-or-death’ perspective, and it was genuinely heartbreaking that there could not be any apolitical ethical coverage of C19 briefings.
I absolutely hated that I was driven to post about politics and take a clear bent in my posting. Full disclosure, I am NOT a REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT and routinely vote 3rd party. I have never considered myself a Trump supporter but I was just so frustrated with the fact that NO GOOD NEWS was allowed to be discussed by the mainstream media. They would literally ONLY discuss predetermined talking points that were exclusively negative either about Trump, his personal life, his consistency, his handling of Covid or random nonsense like the attempt to revive #TrumpRussia with completely unverified and unfounded intelligence on Russian bounties.
I hated how prophetic I was when I stated they would detract with more lies tomorrow. At that next briefing, Trump said the infamous “disinfectant” line: “I see disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute, and is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that. So you’re going to have to use medical doctors, but it sounds interesting to me. So, we’ll see. But the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute, that’s pretty powerful.”
This became, “”I mentioned the President and his uh… let’s say, ‘We can kill the virus by injecting disinfectants, like Lysol, into the body.'” – Nancy Pelosi, reading a fake quote of President Trump’s at her press conference April 24th, 2020 Time stamp 11:21 (Cspan link)
Notice that Nancy was reading something prepared, likely by someone else and it was not a question as the original quote was but instead a matter-of-fact statement compete with branded product placement. This political lie is brought to you by Lysol!
Dealing the dark world of “FACT CHECKERS” was another dim light in darkness of 2020.
Note the above screencap and caption. This sort of thing was routine where a rumor, misquote or hoax that hurts one political party would get the full color pallette of response, but debunking the other party would get a text-only blurb. I searched again using different search terms in my query, I did find they had one article on the subject with the “Mostly false” designation on the expected meter, but also had an accompanying article providing a medical refutation of the presidents statements. Last I checked, politifact isn’t the Mayo clinic. Why they had 3 articles on one incident seems like a bizarre act of site traffic cannibalism and not great use of their journalistic skills
I honestly don’t even want to get into Snopes as their bias is so insanely extreme they just won’t even mention debunked hoaxes that happen to be rallying cries for groups they like. They refused to refute the widely published and disproven in court claims of Dorian Johnson of “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” and not only refused to debunk #TrumpRussia allegations LONG after the Steele Dossier was refuted by reputable agencies and but have continued to post biased nonsense against Trump in line with the conspiracy theory THIS YEAR!
Anyway, we’re back at it. Expect more content from us. I’ll even bug Slim Johnson and see if he wants to fill us in on what’s going on in Nigeria at the moment.
A Short Timeline of
The Amazing Dishonesty of the Media:
Trump unveils fairly boring guidelines to slowly reopen America and re-vitalize economy. Tells no one to stop current measures, specifically tells people to continue to social distance and wear masks (1)
Media reports, mostly through Op-ed nonsense, how reckless Trump was to totally reopen America, despite him not doing that and instead being, boring ‘on-prompter’ Trump.
Georgia Gov says screw it and reopens his state.(2)
Trump, logically, criticizes that because it totally goes against his boring plan.
The media today criticizes Trump for going back on the statements from him that THEY MADE UP.
“Trump Changes Course on Reopening the Economy After Georgia Governor Tries To Follow His Lead” – Reason (3)
“Trump reverses course, says it’s ‘too soon’ for Georgia Gov. Kemp to reopen state” – NBC News (4)
“Georgia feud spotlights Republican divide over reopening economy” – POLITICO (5)
and final example:
“Could you talk about your decision making process on the healthcare of Georgia, you yesterday said… to the Governor of Georgia that you were concerned and earlier this week you spoke and you did not convey this kind of message. Was there a change in your thinking?” (6)
– fake newswoman tried to ask a question based on this false premise and Trump shut her down, a little too politely, but thankfully he did shut her down. They’ll probably start lying about something else tomorrow but I wonder if anyone notices that, um… ALL OF THESE LIES ARE RECORDED AND PUBLISHED ONLINE! And this is why more and more people are turning away from Mainstream news.
…No, it didn’t, just being dramatic, but why shouldn’t it? Look at this site for all the stats and number porn you could want!
Population, death, economy… of course, CORONA VIRUS!
DON’T TRUST RANDOM WEBSITES ON CV19
While on the subject of COVID19, just throwing this out there, DON’T be stupid and give personal information to websites claiming to have corona virus screening questionnaires that AREN’T “.gov” website. Only trust CDC.gov or your local state government’s website to check you for the disease- also, I personal took the CDC self-checker and it NEVER ASKED for personal information, only symptom details! I went to CDC.gov clicked on COVID 19, click on the “If you’re sick” button.
Then I clicked the yellow “Self-Checker” tab in the bottom right corner. and opened a chat window where it asked me simple questions.
What’s going on in the Caribbean?! All the news in the US has been about what’s going on in DC or El Paso and we’re not talking about anything else but Haiti is in full blown crisis mode, it’s looking like the riots in the 90s people are dying!
If it’s wrong to convince someone to kill their self, encourage kids to do dangerous stunt they see on TV or leave a pool in a back yard unfenced, why is it okay to ENCOURAGE poor people to illegally immigrate into the country dangerously?
Keeping in mind NO organization recognized by the federal government promotes school shootings, but there are several who advocate for dangerous illegal crossing of the southern border. Here is one of the groups, Pueblos Sin Fontera:

Jamal Koshoggi’s Connection to Muslim Brotherhood cited
I put all this together, because I want the truth NEVER to become “untrue” or “a smear” just because of politics. The following DOES NOT make any excuses for the murder of Jamal Kashoggi, merely confronts any revisionist history that might be taking place on his behalf or on behalf of his former associates, the Muslim Brotherhood.
The first article I found when searching was a mental gymnastics piece by someone at Brookings, basically saying “Yes, but…” to my point. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/order-from-chaos/2018/10/19/on-jamal-khashoggi-the-muslim-brotherhood-and-saudi-arabia/
A very biased article that proves he was part of Muslim Brotherhood but doesn’t want people to bring it up.
“Yes, Jamal Khashoggi had many friends among the Muslim Brotherhood and, as his colleague David Ignatius reported days after his disappearance, had joined the movement himself as a young man…” The article continues to attempt to smear anyone pointing out his factual connection to terrorist supporters and other right wing Muslim groups as being right-wingers themselves… because…. um…. Brookings logic!So I did a google search for up till before Jamal’s murder and instantly found a recent article of his praising the Mulsim Brotherhood and lamenting their loss of supreme authority in Egypt.
Since the coup by Al-Sisi, MB has pretended to be the underdog again, but we have to ignore their majority backed violence and hate to let them get away with that.
For some background on what he was defending: The US and UK supported the right-wing mob, the Muslim Brotherhood to organize riots and mob rule in 2011 in Egypt to oust Hosni Mubarak. Despite their burning of Churches and raping of women, the US sided with the Muslim Brotherhood and defended them durring the “democratic” process. Mohammed Morsi, the MB’s presidential candidate was later overthrown after attempting to become a Supreme Leader* akin to the Ayatollah in Iran. Of course a right winger declaring himself a supreme leader is as illiberal as it gets, but that’s not how the left in the US were sold the situation by people like Khashoggi.
The “Democracy” that Kashoggi lament being overthrown:
“With parts of his capital ablaze, Mubarak said he was asking his government to resign and would soon announce a new one, pledging to address the concerns of thousand of Egyptians protesting in Cairo’s streets.” – CNN “Obama: I told Mubarak he must deliver on his promises” (http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/01/28/egypt.protests.u.s..response/index.html)
Why he is a Martyr (rant against media fearmongering)
Jamaal’s murder was disgusting and a gross abuse of power, no matter who ordered the killing. I am frustrated by reading or hearing the details but one of my biggest aggravations with this subject is that I have been talking about the bloody conflicts that the Saudis have been involved with for years and now, while US mainstream media completely IGNORED them. I’m bothered that the only reason they pay attention to this story and finally condemn some of the behavior of the Saudi royalty, is because they, personally, feel attacked. Khashoghji wasn’t a Muslim Brotherhood member to CNN or Washington Post, he’s not even a muslim to them- he’s a Journalist, and because of that, he’s one of them and an attack on one is an attack on all! They COMPLETELY ignored any of the things he stood for or that he wanted to fix and completely made the story about themselves, fearmongering that media was all being targeted for violence and continuing the mental gymnastics to tie the situation to US President Donald Trump. It’s embarrassing. So, if you want to see him as a Martyr, do so for the right reason. Look to Yemen, look to human rights violations in peninsula, scrutinize leadership and ask questions, don’t just play the victim, find the victims and report about the them! Be journalists!
This story is more troubling than the Rohingya situation in that it effects many more people, a minority in Myanmar that capture the worlds attention by fleeing the Burmese territories due to pressure in the past years after Rohingya terror attacks. The Uyghur situation is different in that they are a much larger population, apx 10 times as large, but a much smaller minority within China, a much more powerful country.
Basically, my point is, if you gave a shit about Myanmar, you should be livid about China. If you don’t, you are a bully who wants to pick on an easy target, third world country and China is what, too big to criticize? Anyway, this some scary stuff and the world should be alert. US can’t sneeze without people making an international fuss, Israel can’t cough without a UN Human Rights inquiry but China can get away with ANYTHING.
