December 11, 2020 (American Thinker) — Google/YouTube didn't try to be subtle. It announced on Wednesday that it would delete any videos that so much as mentioned the word “fraud” in connection with Joe Biden's patently fraudulently ascension to the top of the ticket in the days after the November 3 election. The implications of this are so enormous that it's currently difficult to assimilate all of them, let alone understand what needs to be done to hang on to American liberty.
You cannot discuss what Google just did without first turning to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, which he wrote as a warning about the dangers of a modern totalitarian government. The book's protagonist, Winston Smith, is a member of Big Brother's party who works in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth.
In fact, there is no “truth” in Oceania. Instead, the only “truth” is Big Brother's perpetual perfection. In his job, Winston receives messages telling him to locate past predictions from Big Brother that events had proven to be wrong. He is responsible for rewriting the statements (using a method similar to today's speech recognition technology) to conform to actual events. Then:
PETITION UPDATE (12/12/2020) -
In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear the case filed by the state of Texas.
PETITION UPDATE (12/11/2020) -
6 states have formally joined Texas in its Supreme Court suit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—four battleground states who ran illegal and unconstitutional elections.
Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah have formally joined Texas and agree that the defendant states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify unlawfully enacting last-minute changes and ignoring both federal and state election laws, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.
While Missouri and 16 other states filed an amicus brief with the Court supporting Texas, 20 other states plus the District of Columbia signed an amicus brief supporting the 4 defendant states.
Please SIGN this petition and STAND with Texas, as the state seeks justice in the 2020 general election for all citizens of the United States.
'6 states formally join Texas in lawsuit defending the security of the 2020 election' - https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/6-states-formally-join-texas-in-lawsuit-defending-the-security-of-the-2020-election
The state of Texas has filed suit against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes which those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
Thankfully, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is stepping up to vindicate the right of all Texans - and, all Americans - to have every legal vote be counted.
But, the Supreme Court has only until Thursday morning to either accept or decline hearing the case.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
The main claim that Texas makes is that Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia violated the Electoral Clause of the U.S. Constitution by changing their election rules on mail-in ballots by executive or judicial action, rather than by action from the legislature.
But, America is a land of laws, and most people play by the rules. Citizens also want our state executives and judiciaries to play by the rules.
Bypassing state legislatures, even during a pandemic, cannot be justifiable as it goes against our system of checks and balances, and, ultimately, as it is the legislatures who have the power, vested by the people, to make determinations about state electoral regulations.
Texas also alleges that the defendant-states further violated the U.S. Constitution's Equal Protection Clause by applying different election rules for different parts of their respective states, meaning that election rules were not the same for every citizen of each state.
Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because in disputes between states, the Supreme Court is the court of "first impression." But, the Court only has a limited window to accept or decline hearing the case.
Please SIGN and SHARE this important petition today.

As soon as Winston had dealt with each of the messages, he clipped his speakwritten corrections to the appropriate copy of 'The Times' and pushed them into the pneumatic tube. Then, with a movement which was as nearly as possible unconscious, he crumpled up the original message and any notes that he himself had made, and dropped them into the memory hole to be devoured by the flames.
Having had a refresher course in how completely evil totalitarian dictatorships work, you're ready for Google/YouTube's announcement about its new policy. The policy rejoices under the Orwellian name “Supporting the 2020 U.S. election,” which actually means squelching all challenges to the massive human and electronic fraud that pushed Biden over the top. The announcement begins by assuring everyone:
Our main goal going into the election season was to make sure we're connecting people with authoritative information, while also limiting the reach of misinformation and removing harmful content. The work here is ongoing and we wanted to provide an update.
As you may recall, if your memory hasn't been memory-holed, in pursuit of this main goal, Google/YouTube systematically censored any negative coverage about Biden — most especially reports about Hunter Biden's sexual and drug debauchery and about his corrupt dealings with China and Ukraine, including written evidence and first-person statements about Biden's knowledge of and profiting from Hunter's deals.
Now that Operation Big Brother Phase One has succeeded, and the AP has declared Biden the winner (something that supersedes silly little things like constitutional requirements for victory), YouTube/Google is ready for Operation Big Brother Phase Two – the Memory Hole:
Once you get past the self-serving language, you get to the meat of the matter, which I've highlighted:
Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections. For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come.
Google/YouTube has not removed a single video about the Russia Hoax, even though the Mueller Report, albeit reluctantly, totally discredited it. It also has not removed a single video about the Ukraine hoax. Indeed, so far as I know, it has never removed a single video attacking Donald Trump.
Harmeet Dhillon appeared on Tucker Carlson to discuss what Google/YouTube is doing:

It is to be hoped that, as the Supreme Court justices contemplate the overt, extreme, and outcome-changing constitutional violations that the left visited on the 2020 presidential election, they also consider what will become of America if the justices put their imprimatur on the left's election fraud and its ability to rewrite history in a way that Big Brother would envy. Right now, the only person who can keep us from traveling down this road to becoming the United States of Oceania is Donald Trump.
NOTE: Here at American Thinker, as long as this policy is in effect, we will do everything we can to avoid relying on YouTube videos. However, we can't yet embed videos from other sites such as Rumble, although we're working on the problem. Meanwhile, we encourage content-providers to abandon YouTube immediately.
