October 29, 2020 (American Thinker) — Four days out from the Republic's most consequential presidential election since 1860, deep concern that major voter fraud may be occurring arises by comparing the two most reliable polls with the numbers that daily, hourly are being bruited about by the egregious American media.
PETITION UPDATE (12/11/2020)
Right before Thanksgiving, YouTube deleted a LifeSite video of a distinguished Canadian physician protesting the "unfounded public hysteria" over COVID-19 and accused us of spreading "medical misinformation."
Our account was suspended, and we were prohibited from posting videos on our YouTube channel for one week. And, while that may not seem like a big deal, it's a huge deal for a news organization like LifeSite.
Then, earlier this week, YouTube again suspended our account – this time for two weeks – over an episode of The Bishop Strickland Show wherein Bishop Strickland said he would not take an unethical COVID-19 vaccine.
We were able to appeal the suspension, and our request was granted.
This means that in YouTube's three-strikes-and-you're-out content-policing, idea-cleansing scheme, we are back down to one strike. But, we still face the threat of losing our account permanently.
And, we're not the only ones.
In a recent turn of events, YouTube just announced that it will remove videos alleging widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
But, what is YouTube afraid of? The truth???
Thankfully, however, there is a one, big bright spot on the horizon: 48 states filed suit against Facebook just this week.
And, although this seems like a step in the right direction, the draconian measures which YouTube just rolled out, which are already wielded by Twitter, are an assault against free speech.
So, the fight for freedom of speech against Big Tech goes on. And, we must do everything we can to protect it!

PETITION UPDATE (11/18/2020)
Everyone thought the censorship by Big Tech corporations would decrease after the 2020 election, but the truth is that censorship is being felt just as much as it was before the election.
And, given the election outcome, perhaps Big Tech censorship now is even more consequential than it was before the election!
The two biggest social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter, and other Big Tech companies, are still censoring and suppressing stories and posts favorable to conservatives, and especially anything that has to do with election fraud.
Here are a few recent examples:
- Women for America First organized the March for Trump on November 14, which was shut down by Facebook, MailChimp and Eventbrite. Despite Big Tech’s best efforts to cancel the event, the march went on and gathered a huge crowd.
- Twitter has been suppressing a large number of President Trump’s Tweets. Most of his Tweets have been flagged arbitrarily with a warning stating: “This claim about election fraud is disputed."
Please READ this recent article about Big Tech's attempt to choke information conerning the recent Million MAGA March in Washington, DC: '5 things mainstream media won’t tell you about massive DC ‘Stop the Steal’ rally'
Then, please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, which calls on the Congress, the president, and governors to defend freedom of speech as Big Tech continues their rampant censorship.
PETITION UPDATE (10/15/2020)
In a remarkable development, Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham have announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee will be issuing subpoenas to Twitter's Jack Dorsey and Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg for their company's suppression of two critical expose news stories about how Hunter Biden and the Biden Family allegedly profited from business deals made because of Joe Biden's position as Vice President.
Please WATCH LifeSite's exclusive video of the announcement by Senator Ted Cruz below.
According to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Lindsey Graham, the subpoenas will be issued next Tuesday, for hearings to be held on Friday of next week.
This is a MASSIVE development, and should be welcomed by those who champion freedom of speech.
Again, this is all happening because Twitter and Facebook refuse to allow their members to share stories which would be favorable to conservatives.
Here's the timeline:
Yesterday, Twitter and Facebook suppressed a NY Post story about how Hunter Biden allegedly profited from introducing a Ukrainian businessman to his then-Vice President father, Joe Biden. The story also alleges that Vice President Biden then subsequently pressured Ukrainian authorities to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the businessman's company.
And, just this morning, Twitter suppressed another expose by the NY Post alleging that the Biden Family improperly profitted from deals made with one of the largest Chinese energy companies because of Vice President Biden's position in government.
But, right after the story broke, Senator Cruz tried to share the latest story on Twitter and was blocked. Twitter says that they are blocking the stories because they claim that the information was obtained illegally. However, Twitter showed no problem allowing illegally obtained information about President Trump's tax returns to be shared.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, which calls on the Congress, the president, and governors to defend freedom of speech as Big Tech continues their rampant censorship.

PETITION UPDATE (9/17/2020)
Big Tech is out to kill free speech. LifeSite is out to protect it!
LifeSite has been digging deep into the many claims of liberal bias and selective censorship of pro-life, pro-family, and conservative voices on social media.
And, we are now launching our new series 'Uncensored: Big Tech vs. Free Speech', which will unpack how the actions of Big Tech censors actually affect conservative and Christian organization and individuals.
Please WATCH the first video in our series featuring Brigitte Gabriel, the Founder of ACT For America, one of the nation's premier national security grassroots organizations.
Ms. Gabriel's organization, ACT For America, has been targeted by Big Tech especially in the manipulation of search results.
Big Tech “think[s] they are God and they are exercising their godly power over everybody else,” Gabriel explained. "Because in today's world, anytime you want to find out any information about somebody, what do you do? Google. You go to the internet to find out some information about them. When you research anything about somebody, the first thing that comes up [in the search results] is the Southern Poverty Law Center’s labeling of ‘hate groups.’”
“And who are the ‘hate groups’? Family Research Council is a hate group because they are pro-family. American Family Radio is a hate group…LifeSiteNews is a hate group. My organization is a hate group because we sound the alarm about terrorism and protecting our constitutional freedom. And so they try to character assassinate you. And they control the language.”
LifeSite's research shows that Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and others have become far too dangerous for democracy.
They can and do sway elections and public opinion in whatever direction they want, primarily by manipulating search results, tracking our online behavior, and by blocking truthful content from their platforms.
Today, LifeSite is starting to fight back, with facts and with stories of conservatives and Christians who are being negatively impacted by Big Tech's liberal bias.
Please continue to follow our 'Big Tech vs. Free Speech' series which aims to launch a new video each week for the next eight weeks.
And, please sign our petition demanding that Big Tech monopolies are broken up. Thank you!
ORIGINAL PETITION BACKGROUND TEXT:
The outrageous erasing of the White Coat Summit from the internet is only the latest in a long series of brazen acts of censorship against conservatives and all those who support legitimate free speech.
You may agree or disagree with the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine against the coronavirus, but everyone should agree on this point:
No Big Tech company should have the power to erase from the internet the medical opinions of licensed practicing doctors simply because they do not like what they have to say about the coronavirus or their experience treating it. Americans and other free peoples do not need leftist computer programmers deciding what the best course of medical treatment is for them.
Google/Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and their Big Tech friends want to control what you see, what you read, what you think, and ultimately, how you vote. Not only do they spend hundreds of millions of dollars on lobbying congress and buttering up big Washington DC think tanks, but now they brazenly and directly censor any content they don't want you to see.
Big Tech, like other interest groups, aggressively lobby to help their businesses thrive, but increasingly, Big Tech is using blatant internet censorship to impose its radical world view over those they consider to be "deplorables."
This must stop, but it won't unless we demand it as forcefully as legally possible. We believe that we have reached the point were Big Tech must be broken up if legitimate free speech is going to survive and continue to thrive on the internet.
Please sign our petition to demand real consequences for Big Tech's suppression of legitimate free speech.
In 2016, emails revealed by Fox News' Tucker Carlson proved that Google tried to influence the election by affecting voter turnout. Thankfully they failed. But they didn't give up. Instead, they have been preparing and testing how to manipulate information to continue to abuse their monopolistic power.
In 2018, Google/Youtube et. al. succeeded in manipulating the Irish abortion referendum by blacklisting pro-life videos, manipulating pro-life search terms and results and intentionally withholding pro-life information. Again, this is not an opinion or a conspiracy theory, Project Veritas obtained first hand information proving the intentional censorship by Big Tech.
And the Coronavirus has just made things worse. You see, scared people are more easily manipulated into giving up their freedom of speech. Children are being kept from going to school, tens of millions of Americans are out of work, and rioting has broken out in most major American cities.
Now, more than ever, freedom of speech is necessary to secure all of our freedoms. Freedom of speech is crucial to truly exercise the freedom to vote for the person that best represents one's own views, or the freedom to decide what course of medical treatment to accept - especially the decision to control what vaccines are administered to our children.
Some experts, like Dr. Robert Epstein, a behavioral psychologist who has testified before congress against Big Tech believes that we may already be too late to control Big Tech's tyrannical control over information.
President Trump took a step in the right direction with his Executive Order calling for increased regulation of Big Tech. But much more can be done and needs to be done right now.
In an era where almost everything is polarized, there is an overwhelming support for breaking up the Big Tech monopolies. A recent Pew poll found that 75% of Americans believe that Big Tech companies have too much influence.
It is time to bring serious accountability to Big Tech for their attempts to use their monopolies to kill free speech.
It is time to break up Big Tech.

As of Wednesday, October 28, 2020, the Real Clear Politics average, being reported daily by American Pravda, shows a 7.5% Biden lead in the national popular vote. But that widely reported average is vastly remote from today's numbers published by the two most accurate predictors of the 2016 outcome: IBD/TIPP and Rasmussen, both of whose final snapshots in 2016 came closest to the actual result, IBD actually predicting a Trump victory.
First, the less favorable for the president of these two polls:
October 28, 2020: IBD/TIPP has a 4.6% lead for Biden (50.1 to 45.5), a spread significantly 2.9% smaller than that claimed by the RCP average. Trump's 2016 electoral vote victory came against the gale force winds of a 2+% popular vote loss. There is no historical precedent for overcoming a popular vote loss in the 4-point range — no one ever has — but five days remain, and the margin of error could easily bring today's IBD/TIPP's numbers within the popular vote percentages for 2016, possibly even more favorable to the president.
But today's huge outlier from the RCP average is Rasmussen, also very close to correct in 2016. Rasmussen has likely voter preference at 48-47, favoring the president, an enormous 8.5% better showing for President Trump than the RCP average.
Another Rasmussen number backs up its latest voter preference survey. Rasmussen's presidential approval poll has the president in positive territory, 52-47%, which normally would also be predictive of his victory.
If the latest numbers by 2016's two most accurate polling companies are averaged, the president is doing better now in the national popular vote than his 2016 result. Yet the RCP average, overwhelmingly based on unproven pollsters, has him down 7.5%, a significant 5.5% worse than his 2016 result.
What's going on?
I didn't put this together to cheer up AT's already sophisticated readers, who know that the RCP average includes a passel of polls with no record of recent accuracy or trustworthiness — little more than a collection of unassessed data with no recent history of accuracy in presidential elections — and who already understand the enormous difficulty of getting an accurate read on the president's support, even by fair pollsters, given the “shy” Trump voter phenomenon and many other factors.
Rather, I put this together to emphasize what seems to be going on: in publicizing the RCP average, and in the media drumbeat, far worse than 2016, that it's in the bag for Biden, the public is being prepared for a victory that very well may not be real, but that may appear from the count to have happened. This is not conspiracy stuff or paranoia.
America has never had a presidential election more perfectly designed to facilitate wide-scale voter fraud. It has never before had a presidential election where anything approaching the millions of unrequested absentee ballots has been mailed, and hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, of those ballots have been, and still are, lying around uncollected (or, worse still, possibly already collected). Would today's Democrats — filled with Bolshevist certainty that they have the truth and that their opponents are evil and about to destroy Mother Earth — throw all concern for constitutional legitimacy aside and collect, and feloniously vote, enough ballots to convert a Trump victory into a loss? Might they have done that already?
I'll let the reader answer those questions.
The huge gap between today's numbers by 2016's two best pollsters, and the junk polls being touted hourly by the media, suggest that the stage may well be under construction for presentation and justification of a Biden victory that never happened.
The sage Emmett Tyrrell predicted Trump's victory this Tuesday, just as he predicted it four years ago. But he ended his upbeat article with the following dark observation:
The only thing that could overthrow my calculations is voter fraud. There are an awful lot of blank ballots floating around out there.
It's been a hard year. It may well be about to get a lot harder for American conservatives and patriots. We may be on the brink of having to endure another two-month election night, as in 2000 — but this time endure it in a country whose Democrats can and will deploy their large and well organized violent street thug wing to aid an army of lawyers. It's a classic revolutionary coalition straight out of the history books: intellectuals backed by the mob. If it unfolds thus, Trump's prevailing will require a much steelier will, by him and his supporters, than in 2000.
Trump of course will leave if honestly beaten. Claims to the contrary make a pair with “Russia Collusion.” But his tens of millions of voters, half the country at least and more than half of its productive citizens, are not going to surrender the values, constitutional freedoms, and rule of law that they love to a fraudulent election. Fortunately, they have a president who feels the same way.
