Confirmed: Alex Jones' popularity rises after Infowars banning from social media


We wouldn't expect to be confirmed so fast on this.

A few days ago in the article IT and social media supergiants have just made Alex Jones a hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience, we wrote that Alex Jones' wet dream has just become reality thanks to the combined move by Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify to ban Infowars. These private IT and social media companies couldn't give a better gift to him right now. At a time where Infowars was going through a saturated period according to the best scenario, the corporate giants actually saved it with that stupid(?) strategy.

Suddenly, a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.

Only a couple of days later, Kyle Kulinski of the Secular Talk reports that Infowars app surges in popularity on Apple, Google Play stores.



Jimmy Dore also reported that Infowars became fourth-most popular Apple news app in US after crackdown from tech companies.



In fact, Ron Placone and Jimmy Dore immediately warned about such a development right after Infowars banning. What is left now is to see whether our second (much worse) prediction could become reality too.

In our article we also wrote that this was just a small rehearsal of what is about to come next. We are going to see a broader Orwellian hard censorship by the liberal establishment apparatus against what is considered the real enemy of the corporate America: the rise of the progressive movement.

This type of censorship - combined with other actions like the killing of Net Neutrality - will become a key weapon in the arsenal of the liberal establishment to shutdown the process through which the progressive momentum threatens to take over the Democratic party.

The real target is the progressive movement and the related independent media. The liberal establishment is free now to put all its power on their elimination. So, we are about to see more propaganda campaigns and censorship towards 2020 presidential election.

Many progressives - Ron Placone, Jimmy Dore and Kyle Kulinski among them - have also warned about the probability of such a Dystopian development, quite soon.

In this case, Infowars banning will be used as a blueprint by the establishment machine to shutdown progressive independent media and voices, based on that 'fake news' narrative. This is another indication that the liberal establishment and the far-right are actually work together because they have a common fear: that socialist policies may become one day reality for the benefit of the majority of Americans, and against the interests of the plutocracy they serve.

  1. Wouldn't you consider Alex Jones "far right"?

    I think if anything, the "progressives" will find an ally in the far right if censorship expands to the far left.

    While I'm sure some on the right will initially smile at any left wing censorship, one of the pillars of conservatives at all levels in the limitation of government interference, especially concerning the removal of core liberties like free speech.

    As much as the right hates socialist ideas, they hate the inability to freely express one's ideas even more.

    1. The far-right (even historically) was always the dog of the establishment. When the real left rises, the establishment releases its dog.

US-backed counter-revolution coup against Cuba blatantly fails

globinfo freexchange   Since at least early 2018, the US imperialists were setting the stage for another coup against Cuba in the form of a "color revolution".  As reported back then:   The US State Department announced a new program called 'The Cuba Internet Task Force'. The Task Force will consist of the US government and non-governmental representatives to "promote the free and unregulated flow of information in Cuba". It is part of the National Security Presidential Memorandum of "strengthening the policy of the United States toward Cuba", that was issued by President Trump in June 2017.   This policy seeks "advancing Cuban human rights; encouraging the growth of a Cuban private sector independent of government control; enforcing final orders of removal against Cuban nationals in the United States". The US has sought to overthrow the Cuban government ever since the 1959 revolution. This is not the first time the US has attempted to

Chris Hedges on Assange, Donziger, & the US prison state

Redacted Tonight   Chris Hedges joins Lee Camp for a conversation around his latest book about teaching in American prisons. They also discuss corruption in the media and the U.S. System of Justice.

Hedges provides context for your outrage in their cases. He then reveals his experiences teaching prisoners in maximum security facilities and expresses support for incarcerated people who have chosen to protest their living conditions.

Alert: US imperialists prepare counter-revolution coup on November 15th to take over Cuba!

globinfo freexchange   On November 1st, Lee Camp appeared astonished by the fact that the State Department essentially announced a US-backed coup against Cuba in advance!  And not only that. The US imperialists revealed the specific method and the exact date of the counter-revolution coup! The method is the typical one that we've seen in various cases the last decade or so, which involves a type of "color revolution". The date: November 15th. On November 2nd, cadenagramonte.cu website gave the details and the key players of the operation.   On November 3rd, TeleSUR reported that:                                A Cuban government representative said that Cuba has probably been facing up the largest and most complex cultural warfare operation orchestrated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), promoting a new type of counterrevolution. On Twitter, Cuba's Deputy Foreign Minister Anayansi Rodríguez posted a U.S. plan to bring Cuba's political system down, whic

Οι ολιγάρχες ετοιμάζουν το Plan B που είχαν στο συρτάρι: Συγκυβέρνηση ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ και επιστροφή της γαλαζοπράσινης λαίλαπας

globinfo freexchange   Το άκρως φιλοκυβερνητικό Βήμα , κομμάτι της συστημικής προπαγάνδας της εγχώριας ολιγαρχίας, έδωσε χθες το σύνθημα για το Plan B των ολιγαρχών που είχαν στο συρτάρι ως εναλλακτική, καθώς δεν χρειάστηκε να το θέσουν σε εφαρμογή, λόγω της αυτοδυναμίας που πέτυχε η Μητσοτακική δεξιά στις εκλογές του Ιουλίου του 2019.    Πρόκειται το σενάριο συγκυβέρνησης ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ.  Όπως είχαμε γράψει τον Ιούνιο του 19, η ΝΔ (με ή χωρίς δεκανίκια), έχει ως μοναδική αποστολή να συνεχίσει το "λαμπρό" της έργο από εκεί που το άφησε. Βέβαια, η "Αριστερή παρένθεση", που η Τρόικα εσωτερικού και εξωτερικού φρόντισε έτσι και αλλιώς να κουρελιάσει, κράτησε λίγο παραπάνω απ'ότι υπολόγισαν τα "μεγάλα αφεντικά". Τώρα, ήρθε η ώρα να ξεκουμπιστεί, διότι υπάρχει κίνδυνος να θυμηθεί τις Αριστερές της καταβολές και να καταστρέψει το "θεάρεστο" σχέδιο του νεοφιλελεύθερου ιερατείου. Απ'ότι φαίνεται, υπάρχουν πρόθυμα δεκανίκια, για παν ενδεχόμενο. Από τότ

Free Julian Assange: Snowden, Varoufakis, Corbyn & Tariq Ali speak out ahead of extradition hearing

Democracy Now!   As jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange faces an extradition hearing Wednesday in London, supporters gathered Friday for the Belmarsh Tribunal, named for the Belmarsh maximum security prison where Assange is being held. The mock trial highlighted major WikiLeaks revelations of U.S. war crimes and demanded Assange’s freedom.    Assange faces up to 175 years in prison in the U.S. under the Espionage Act for publishing classified documents exposing U.S. war crimes. Though a British judge blocked his extradition in January, the U.S. appealed the decision.    Speakers from the tribunal include writer Tariq Ali, Afghan political activist Selay Ghaffar, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and former Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn.    “ Julian, far from being indicted, should actually be a hero, ” said Ali. “ He should never have been kept in prison for bail. He should not be in prison now awaiting a trial for extradition. He

The most important battle for Press Freedom in our time

If he is extradited and found guilty of publishing classified material it will set a legal precedent that will effectively end national security reporting.   by Chris Hedges  Part 1 For the past two days, I have been watching the extradition hearing for Julian Assange via video link from London. The United States is appealing a lower court ruling that denied the US request to extradite Assange not, unfortunately, because in the eyes of the court he is innocent of a crime, but because, as Judge Vanessa Baraitser in January concluded, Assange’s precarious psychological state would deteriorate given the “ harsh conditions ” of the inhumane US prison system, “ causing him to commit suicide .” The United States has charged Assange with 17 counts under the Espionage Act and one count of trying to hack into a government computer, charges that could see him imprisoned for 175 years. Assange, with long white hair, appeared on screen the first day from the video conference room in HM Prison Belm

Top 1% of US earners now hold more wealth than all of the middle class

by Alexandre Tanzi and Mike Dorning  After years of declines, America’s middle class now holds a smaller share of U.S. wealth than the top 1%. The middle 60% of U.S. households by income -- a measure economists often use as a definition of the middle class -- saw their combined assets drop to 26.6% of national wealth as of June, the lowest in Federal Reserve data going back three decades. For the first time, the super rich had a bigger share, at 27%. The data offer a window into the slow-motion erosion in the financial security of mid-tier earners that has fueled voters’ discontent in recent years. That continued through the Covid-19 pandemic, despite trillions of dollars in government relief .   Rise of the Super Rich   Middle-class Americans now hold less wealth than the top 1% by income.   While “middle class” has different meanings to different people, many economists use income to define the group. The 77.5 million families in the middle 60% make about $27,000 to $141,000 annually
