If you pay any attention to conservative Twitter, you’re aware of this week’s incident in social-media censorship. YouTube has “demonetized” conservative comedian Steven Crowder’s YouTube channel. He’s not banned, but he’s lost one of his income streams. His offense was targeting a Vox journalist, Carlos Maza, in his bits, including calling him offensive names.
A right-wing speaker says something outrageous and faces consequences, while multiple left-wing speakers seem to spew venom with impunity, including at people (like, say, conservative Christians) who are also ostensibly protected by various social-media anti-harassment and anti-discrimination policies.
The regularity of the controversies — combined with the persistence of the overt viewpoint discrimination — is resulting in a demand that government “do something” to solve the problem. But the problem is far too complex and deep-seated for the government to solve. And if the government tries to step in with too heavy a hand, it’s going to violate the law. It’s past time for an honest, realistic look at the true cultural, commercial, and constitutional challenges to social-media fairness.
Here’s the blunt truth, most red Americans either don’t know or don’t care about social-media censorship. They certainly don’t care enough to delete their apps. This isn’t a market failure; it’s a market verdict. Apathy rules and this apathy is sustained in part because social-media companies have chosen their targets carefully. There are few normal Americans who want to jump off their favorite app because YouTube censored someone who uses phrases like “lispy queer” or because Facebook ditched Alex Jones, a man who claimed the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax.
Those who do truly care about censorship are a rounding error in the market. They’re part of the tiny slice of American citizens who are not only engaged in online conservative politics, they’re motivated enough to do something about censorship. This small group has no meaningful market impact, but it does punch above its weight in one key area — access to government power. They know senators. Senators know them.
But that brings us to the rather important topic of the United States Constitution. The First Amendment limits the government’s power to force a private corporation to provide a platform for speech it despises. Government regulation of media is an almost impossibly complex topic (if you want to dive into the topic in the social media context, I can recommend this March 2019 analysis from the Congressional Research Service), but here’s a general principle — the more any social-media company curates its content, the more First Amendment protection it is likely to enjoy.
A series of 700 quakes in one day rattling California and the Pacific Northwest may signal an upcoming catastrophic earthquake, seismologists say, KOIN reported. Or experts say they might just be another reminder that the pressure’s always building on fault lines beneath the West Coast, KATU reported.
“Those are just reminders,” said Scott Burns, a Portland State University geology professor, according to the station. “We don’t know what they mean. They are reminders that we are in earthquake country, and they may be precursors to the ‘big one.’”

Earth Changes, things are really getting stranger by the minute, great Earth changes in fierce winds, tsunamis, crazy weather, increased seismic and volcanic activity. Even the predictions for this year’s hurricane season are for increases in the number of hurricanes, size, and wind velocities. Here’s what has happened so far this week, the grid is no longer stable and is causing huge Earth changes–extreme weather, mysterious booms, huge fissures opening up, sinkholes forming, increased earthquake and volcanic activity.
- Mysterious booms continue worldwide. Are they coming from above or below us? Some think both.
- There have been 750 earthquake swarms in Southern California. Recently Tar and gas began rising near the La Brea tar pits in Los Angeles and there was a 4.0 earthquake reported in Ohio. Article on Tar.
- Mount Sinabung in Indonesia exploded two days ago sending a terrifying plume of ash and smoke into the air. The eruption and the earth rumbling lasted for 9 minutes. It was dormant for 400 years prior to 2010.
- Suddenly Jupiter’s giant spot is disappearing. Lately, it’s been showing signs of breaking apart. Is this the beginning of the end for the beloved Spot? Article…
- Crazy weather for the entire planet—extreme heat in the Southwest, California all the way up to Washington State, and, 500 destructive tornadoes in one week throughout the Midwest, flooding in the U.S. South and East, snow in Queensland, extreme heat in India.
- Temperatures spike to 120 degrees in SF and the western US, followed by record cold and rainy conditions in the midwestern and southeastern states.
- Hundreds of meteors and bolides spotted since 2018.
The Department of Justice today announced the arrest of almost 1,700 suspected online child sex offenders during a two-month, nationwide operation conducted by Internet Crimes Against Children task forces. The task forces identified 308 offenders who either produced child pornography or committed child sexual abuse, and 357 children who suffered recent, ongoing or historical sexual abuse or were exploited in the production of child pornography.
The 61 ICAC task forces, located in all 50 states and comprised of more than 4,500 federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies, led the coordinated operation known as “Broken Heart” during the months of April and May 2019. During the course of the operation, the task forces investigated more than 18,500 complaints of technology-facilitated crimes targeting children and delivered more than 2,150 presentations on internet safety to over 201,000 youth and adults.
“The sexual abuse of children is repugnant, and it victimizes the most innocent and vulnerable of all,” Attorney General William P. Barr said. “We must bring the full force of the law against sexual predators, and with the help of our Internet Crimes Against Children program, we will. Over the span of just two months, our ICAC task forces investigated more than 18,000 complaints of Internet-related abuse and helped arrest 1,700 alleged abusers. I would like to thank our Office of Justice Programs, all of the task force members, and especially the state and local partners who helped us achieve these important results. We are committed to bringing the defendants in these cases to justice and protecting every American child.”
