We know that over half of Facebooks accounts are fake and that most people in the bottom four billion of humanity do not use Facebook — or Twitter or any of the other “social media” platforms.
We know that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have evolved into censors of truthful information in service to the lies favored by the Deep State.
We know that Google and YouTube are fabricating statistics and manipulating searches, polls, and data in every possible way to achieve contrived ends including theft from advertisers and the theft of elections.
