Should the Government Do As Mark Zuckerberg Asks, Help Control Internet Content?

It is odd that Mark Zuckerberg has requested the government to have oversight over the Internet.

The government has always had oversight over the Internet, it just has not used its lawful powers usefully or correctly. The primary reason for that lack of oversight is from the inept public officials elected to Congress. These elected official fail because they are either actors and entertainers grandstanding with no real interest in enacting laws like legislators should and only present themselves in TV Reality-like shows called News pretending to be representative of the people and actually being of no legal use due to lack of representation and legislative enactments. Or, on the other side of the aisle, they have been involved in nonstop espionage, sabotage, Deep State conspiracy and political fighting that has gained zero use to the people. Their pugnacious behavior has only continuously divided our nation. But, Zuckerberg calls for Social Media Reform, not just for Facebook, but across the social media platforms.

I think that Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Jack Dorsey (Twitter), just to name two, are war criminals. I hold both Zuckerberg and Dorsey, their partners, managers and business associates responsible for the death of tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children, including babies who died (actually who were slaughtered or exterminated) because of their social media platforms’ tolerance, promoting, aiding and abetting and directly enhancing the rise of Daesh (ISIS) and other international terrorists. That is a historical fact which plenty of evidence can be found to support my claims.  I began protesting Zuckerberg’s and Dorsey’s as well as other social media lord’s participation in those attacks as early as June of 2014 when Daesh was just coming to surface on the international stage. Some of my writing to attest to those statements can be found in some of the posts below on this very website.

This post is not about the war crimes of Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey. That will come in another post or essay, or a series of them, in my Blogs & eBook collections. I believe, in time, one of the nations involved in the Daesh terrorism or the United Nations will indeed begin investigations and bring war crimes tribunals against the billionaire tyrants who rose to war-crime statue because of their inhumane behavior that FAILED TO REGULATE OR BAN HATE CRIMES AND POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC AS WELL AS HUMAN RIGHTS AGENDA BY INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST AND CRIMINALS INCLUDING PARTICULARLY ISLAMIC MUSLIMS

But no one wanted to offend the Muslims, so tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children including babies were slaughtered. Now, Zuckerberg calls for government oversight. I agree with him. But I also agree he (and Jack Dorsey and Company) should be held responsible for his own involvement in election tampering, hate crime activities and other wrongdoings including massive privacy invasions.

Just download an archive of your Facebook content and you will find low and behold Zuckerberg and Company has possession of your telephone contacts. Every name, every number in your telephone contact list Zuckerberg has possession of. So does who knows whatever third-party Facebook and company sold their private numbers too.

Jack Dorsey and Company offers a content archive download, too. But it is bogus. FAKE. It does not work. Just like the appeal process when Twitter locks out a user because their PINK HAIRS claimed the user used hateful content. The appeals go unread or ignored with no responses. Until the user gets on his knees and pleads mercy and saying UNCLE to the tyrant billionaire’s Pink Hairs the user’s account will remain to be locked out–innocent or guilty. And many of guilty ones will continue their hate because Dorsey and Company or Zuckerberg and Company happen to give them preference.

So, yes, we need oversight on social media. Government oversight or third parties. But who is to say even they won’t discriminate unfairly? We need oversight beginning with Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and the rest of Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google, YouTube, and other tech companies and social media. And we need oversight of public officials who express hate and incite hate and violence. Will we every see it? I doubt it. Maxine Waters is not only alive and well but prospering in Congress without a political scratch on her, although the ethics rules of Congress state she could and should have been expelled. The same applies to many other public officials that have never been brought to justice. Think Lois Lerner. Her partner in crime is now Chairman of the Government Oversight Committee, imagine that.

I don’t agree much on anything either Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey say or do. I do agree with at least taking a look at the list of things he mentions below and bringing them to an open forum for discussion. But I also agree with the majority of Americans and probably world citizens of all political, social, economic and religious ideologies and convictions that there needs to be oversight of the tech and social media tyrant billionaires themselves and a regulation to bring a fair and balance equality for and of all people. Muslims and blacks should not be given preference because someone is afraid of offending them. Nor should whites be given special privilege. Nor should an existing generation be blamed for something a former generation committed.

We need to pull our heads out of the sand and make a better world for all of us and future generations.

We have a lot of nonsense floating around in our society, at home and abroad. We need good leaders to sift through that nonsense and bring us equal justice for all while restoring peace and calm and unity. Is anyone up to the job?

Add Your Two Cents
What do you think should happen? Should there be a government oversight in social media? Or even on the Internet? If so who should be regulated and what should the penalties for violation be? Who should do the regulating and what defense or appeal should a person who believes they are innocent have? Should websites be able to lock people out denying them access to their own material, even if they do lock out the user from public appearance? What about freedom of speech? Where are the lines drawn to protect freedom of speech and the First Amendment?

What does Mark Zuckerberg want?

In brief, Mr. Zuckerberg calls for the following things:

* Common rules that all social media sites need to adhere to, enforced by third-party bodies, to control the spread of harmful content

* All major tech companies to release a transparency report every three months, to put it on a par with financial reporting

* Stronger laws around the world to protect the integrity of elections, with common standards for all websites to identify political actors

* Laws that not only apply to candidates and elections, but also other “divisive political issues”, and for laws to apply outside of official campaign periods

* New industry-wide standards to control how political campaigns use data to target voters online

* More countries to adopt privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force last year

* A “common global framework” that means these laws are all standardized globally, rather than being substantially different from country to country

* Clear rules about who’s responsible for protecting people’s data when they move it from one service to another

Facebook & Twitter Tyranny Upon Individual Free Speech

Freedom & Independence is only one step away from slavery–Cliff Harrison

Censorship by Social Media Tyrants
Social media censorship controlled by billionaire tyrants cannot be tolerated in a free nation of a free people. Rather it is a liberal leftwing owned and operated social media against conservative users or a conservative rightwing owned and operated social media against liberal users, in a free nation we cannot allow such tyranny.

From this day forth I join the forces who will fight for the liberty; our freedom and independence against any foe who so dares threaten our chosen way of life.

It was Ayn Rand who said “The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”

Those words did not belong to an ideology connected to any one political party or a religion, religious denomination or sect. Miss Rand’s wisdom is meant for the inalienable rights of all human beings. The United States Constitution does not restrict its meaning nor its jurisdiction solely to government or the property thereof. The Constitution and its guarantees apply to all American citizens without boundary and without exception.

Freedom & Independence
Our freedom and independence were never meant to be controlled by a few men. Billionaire tyrants were never elected to be our dictators and rulers of what WE THE PEOPLE can or cannot say, even in a public forum they may own. Terms and conditions and terms of use cannot supersede the Constitution of the United States of America. Nor shall it.

Facebook & Twitter Tyranny Upon Individual Free Speech will cause a war these billionaire tyrants have never imaged could wipe away their wealth. If a social media war comes so powerful and intense in counterattacks and self-defense the loses for these tyrant companies will be so insurmountable their collapse is inevitable.

Since 2014 I watched the social media barons named and listed here allow the wanton disregard for human life by aiding and abetting Daesh (ISIS) and other international terrorists in their barbaric and inhumane assault upon innocent people.

Tens of thousands of innocent civilians died, brutally murdered at the hands of a subhuman terrorist organization. Women and children were separated from their male family members who were executed. These kidnapped women and children, already in a deep grievance, were raped, tortured, mutilated or forced into marriage to be enslaved brides for Daesh warriors or to used by gangs for forced sex and sold as sex slaves to men some old enough to be their fathers and grandfather.

Ancient landmarks, centuries-old communities, entire cities, and nations fell to Daesh and other terrorist groups, with the lives of millions of people disrupted because the very billionaire tyrants I name here in this address committed crimes against humanity for failing to censor a real violent and hateful attack upon an innocent people, and their aiding and abetting thereof.

These very men I name below and their pink hair operatives hiding in anonymity wanted to protect that culture I just lightly described above. These tyrant men and their hierarchy did nothing to slow the atrocities while they could have ENDED the genocide by severing the communication, the terrorists’ ability to communicate, their recruiting and promotion propaganda. Thousands of violent videos were posted showing beheadings and inhumane executions, even by children trained by Daesh. The billionaire tyrants did nothing to slow or stop the human carnage. It went on for years. YEARS! But these very billionaire tyrants that did nothing to stop inhumane loss of life and war crimes and crimes against humanity on innocent civilians, mostly women, and children, attack our culture with venomous vile and increasing velocity. WE THE PEOPLE SHALL NOT TOLERATE THAT ABUSE OF POWER AND SHALL BRING JUSTICE WHERE JUSTICE HAS NOT BEEN SERVED.

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg and his Facebook hierarchy need to be brought to justice. And so too does Jack Patrick Dorsey and Omid R. Kordestani and their Twitter gangsters; their kingdom of Pink Hairs that hide in anonymity like those of Facebook, Google, and YouTube silently and viciously attacking the users they don’t agree with, one by one. Youtube and Google’s/Alphabet’s Lawrence Edward Page and Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin and their anonymous Pink Hairs joint the leftwing forces to attack innocent conservatives. While Alphabet executives and the subordinate managers of their holding company’s operating companies did absolutely nothing to censor or restrict Daesh and other international terrorists in their gruesome footage of violence against the oppressed they viciously attack Christian Conservatives they don’t agree with.

Daesh and other terrorists freely used Facebook, Twitter, Google, Youtube and Microsoft and many other social media connections to recruit and promote their terrorist agenda. Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Kordestani, Page, and Brin among others sold out innocent and vulnerable people while an inept political administration did nothing to counter the world violence when they all could have stopped it before it spread beyond Mosul, Iraq in June of 2014.

As early as June of 2014 I had reached out publically to shut down the ISIS from using social media for communication. I appealed to everyone controlling the social media, including Facebook and Twitter to shut down the violent and hateful communications coming from terrorist groups. I had written several public messages calling for the revoking of terrorist sites used for recruiting and promoting. NO ONE WANTED TO OFFEND MUSLIMS OR ISLAM. On 24 August 2014, I released a list of 5 things we could do to defeat Daesh or ISIS and one of those things was to order all social media networks globally to refrain from posting Daesh material. One of those essays was on this very site, Vegas Valley. 5 Things We Can Do to Win the War Against the ISIS and Any Other Terrorist Organization

I was on to it long before the sleeping Americans ever opened their eyes.

It took years for the American people and the social media tyrants to catch up. By then, it was too late. The carnage was over or drawing to an end by the time they acted. And when they acted it was us, Christian Conservative Americans they attacked and with vile.

Yet today these very individuals who control the social media, the billionaire tyrants, ban innocent conservatives that voice their opinions. They don’t like the conservatives, so they delete their posts. lockout their accounts or do some other disrupted thing to their social media account. That is not America. Such behavior cannot and will not be tolerated in America. All individuals ought to have their voice unfettered by the interference of Pink Hairs hiding in anonymity.

This commentary has nothing to do with what is going on with other conservatives and the administration in addressing the social media gone wild. I write from my own experience and observation. However, we do need our leaders in government to start focusing more seriously on these billionaire tyrants and their social media toys and bring tough investigations with follow-ups by the Department of Justice and the FBI (If we can find one that is not politicized.) We also need to investigate the questions of war crimes and crimes against humanity and those charges if they exist may be better conducted by world bodies or international communities including the United Nations and the International Criminal Court. What we must do is bring that awareness and begin the process. If the social media billionaire tyrants want a war, we shall give them a war that will cost them far more than it will us. They have much more to lose than we do. Much more.

Hundreds of thousands of people continue to suffer and mourn from the tens of thousands of lives lost due to the billionaire tyrants’ social media that enabled the infliction of such widespread suffering and genocide by terrorists and evil forces not seen since World War II. Justice must and will be served and the oppressed must and will be liberated.

Social media as we know it has come to an end and a new era will replace the current abuses. In the weeks, months and years to come, there will be many changes in the way social media conducts business. I will be on the forefront of perfecting those changes for the greater good of society and not for a few billionaire tyrants who badly misbehave.

A HOUSE SO DIVIDED CANNOT STAND
The United States of America can never be united if we continue to allow the forces of evil to divide us. The course of our destiny will most certainly etch a fate that will deliver us into a hostile and violent homeland war. A war nobody wants. A war nobody can escape from.

HISTORY CAN AND WILL REPEAT ITSELF IF WE LET IT
First, they came for the Christians. But I was not a Christian, so I said nothing. Then they came for the conservatives but I was not a conservative, so I said nothing. Then they came for the liberal, but I was not a liberal, so I said nothing. Then they came for….

Qandeel Baloch Murdered By Honor Killing

Pakistan’s social-media queen, Qandeel Baloch, a world renown social celebrity, is dead from honor killing. Her brother murdered her, according to news reports breaking out of Pakistan at this hour. The video immediately below is a live stream out of Pakistan at 6:00 AM PST. Thousands of women are slain every year in Pakistan and Middle Eastern regions for dishonoring their family. THERE IS NO FREEDOM FOR FEMALES IN THE LAND AMERICA SPENDS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SUPPORT. Ms. Baloch had fled Karachi to the Punjab or Multan region. There are conflicting reports, so time is needed to sort out the inaccurate reports. She was threaten with death. She was denied additional security from the Pakistan government. Attacks against her came too sudden for others to rescue her. Her escape was unsuccessful.

For millions of females enslaved under Sharia Law, there is no freedom and independence. Even at the age of 26, Qandeel Baloch was not able to live her life as she alone chose to live it. She was provocative, yes, but that is no reason the choice of her life, the clothes she desired to wear, the music she enjoyed playing and listening to and the lifestyle she chooses to live ought to bring her suffering death. This world must change course and DEMAND the banning of Sharia Law. Because one is born female is no excuse to enslave them as Islamic religion does. All women born under Islamic families have a birth right to freedom and independence. They have an inalienable right, a human right to be free and independent, to make their own choices of how they will live and conduct their life. We as a world must push the movement forward to free the females of Sharia Law slavery. Period!

BBC Report on Qandeel Baloch honor killing/

A woman’s behavior is not a man’s business. In Pakistan and most of the Arab and Islamic world females can be tortured or executed for such trivial things as failing to wear their veil, for the clothes they wear… or don’t wear. For dishonoring their family. For speaking to a male outside of their family membership and for adopting the Western culture and many other idiotic things based upon 7th Century culture.


Blazing Heat Wave Inflicts Vegas Valley

Wildfire In California

Wildfire In California

LAS VEGAS—Torrid three-digit temperatures scorches the West. Wildfires dangerously spread across western states and engulfs dry areas threatening large numbers of homes, wildlife and natural habitat. It’s way too early for this kind of heat. It’s only spring. We are being engulfed by the flamethrower of nature, unrelenting heat. Shortly after 1:00 AM this morning, the National Weather Service issued an urgent weather message proclaiming Excessive Heat Warning for Las Vegas Valley, Clark County, the Mojave Desert and a wide area of the West, including Arizona.

We are being set ablaze with July-August, summer-like temperatures, not May-June spring climate.

A bummer for Las Vegas tourists and locals alike. It’s a party town and tourists who come from cooler weather are going to be toasted to something other than drinks. To be outside in Vegas in this extreme climate, walking around and exerting energy while sightseeing and adventure seeking could spell disaster if precautions aren’t taken.

I know this sounds counter productive, but if you insist on drinking alcohol or caffeinated beverages while outside or going outside in this extreme heat, then drink at least 12-16 ounces of cold water for every alcoholic drink you consume. The same for at least every 2-3 cups of caffeinated drink. Alcohol and caffeine dehydrates your body, while water replenishes those loses and hydrates your body. You need plenty of water to balance the forces of partying. Too, in these temperatures, water, or any liquid will get extremely hot fast. Test any fluids before giving to children or pets for suitable consumption temperatures. If available, use those small ice packs to keep beverages cold, or at least cooled. Foil will act as an insulator as well.

For well beyond a week, temperatures will climb to at least 112 degrees in the Vegas Valley and over 121 degrees in nearby Death Valley. Be aware these are air temperatures. Ground temperatures, that is the surface temperature of the infrastructure, street pavement, sidewalks, buildings and so forth, can be ten to fifteen degrees higher. Vehicle temperature or the inside temperature of any space with metal, glass or other material enclosed can reach well over 150 degrees, a fatal temperature. Such extreme temperature for anyone, even adults, left in vehicles without air condition can turn fatal in a hurry. Confusion and disorientation can set in and disturb normally thinking minds. Brain damage and stroke can quickly be inflicted. Machines, such as cars and air conditioning can fail and suffer mechanical problems, don’t risk leaving someone unattended.

Don’t over do it. Get inside, refresh, take breaks, drink plenty of water and stay alert. Don’t leave children or pets in vehicles, even momentarily. Keep your eye on your children constantly while near swimming pools. Sun strokes, heat exhaustion, heat-related health issues, be aware of signs of these health problems. If you suspect the signs, get help, quick. Every year we hear of the weather-related disasters, often fatal, that consume lives locally and around the nation. Stay alert.

“Only you can prevent forest fires!” By Forest Service, United States Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the Association of State Foresters and the Advertising Council.

Every year thousands of acres and homes burn in the Western region of the United States. Dry periods and extreme heat are almost always a condition that will spark an inferno, rapid moving wildfires and consuming flames of property and nature. The spark that ignites these fires come from lightning as much-wanted rain comes, but unfortunately the rain comes with torches of lightning bolts that set forests ablaze. Careless campers failing to properly extinguish their campfires or carelessly starting one that shoots embers into dry forests with kindle-dry wood. Once a forest fire starts, it spreads rapidly, and if there is a high wind, it will likely burn out of control.

Travelers on expressways and roadways are at fault for many forest fires.
Accidents spark forest fires, too. The current California fire was started by a truck accident when electrical wires sparked a fire. Flicking a cigarette out a window along a dry highway is only asking for trouble. Careless smokers destroy thousands of acres and homes every year. All of these conditions are weather related and heat related. But commonsense and education can reduce the human and animal fatalities, injuries, loss of homes, businesses, buildings, domestic pets, and our natural resources, our forest and wildlife.

Careless Smoking & Careless Campfires Start Many Forest Fires

Careless Smoking & Careless Campfires Start Many Forest Fires

Be smart. Be safe. Think and be prepared to reduce the harm excessive heat can bring humans and animals. It all begins in your heart with a little bit of care and a whole lot of tender love for life and environment.

Rather you are visiting Vegas or the Western region, traveling along dry roadways, camping, hiking or spending your time outdoors in other adventures, use wisdom to make your life and the life of other’s pleasant and not remorseful.

It appears that we are in for a long, hot summer. Buses overheat. Schedules often run late. Transportation breaks down. Be prepared. Don’t get caught out in that extreme heat without protection. Sunscreen, long-sleeve shirts, sunhats, umbrellas, water, cooling fans, cell phones are all part of the self-defense arsenal, use them, keep them by your side while being inflicted by Nevada’s torrid heat.

Have fun, but stay cool as possible and stay safe.
