A popular news reporter is gaining a massive amount of followers on Twitter after being banned from Facebook, YouTube, and Apple iTunes.
According to SocialBlade, InfoWars frontman Alex Jones has gained nearly 22,000 followers today. Before his ban from three of the largest tech giants in the world, he was gaining between 200-300 per day.
Likewise, the InfoWars Twitter account is rapidly gaining followers, increasing from a net of about zero new followers per day, to 4,246 today.
Twitter refused to issue a ban on Jones’ content along with the rest of the tech giants in Silicon Valley, which is by no means meant to be an endorsement of Twitter. The micro-bogging site is just more sly in how it goes about shutting down conservatives, using a “shadowbanning” process.
“A Twitter spokesperson told CNBC on Monday that the accounts do not violate the company’s policies,” the news outlet wrote. “The company also said it is constantly moderating content on its platform and will take action if it needs to, and that much of the content posted to other platforms doesn’t make it to Twitter.”
Jones has been turned into a free speech martyr online, with many conservatives standing against Silicon Valley censorship.
“Congratulations, Silicon Valley leftists. You just made Alex Jones a martyr,” said this reporter in a wildly popular tweet.

“A Democrat Senator openly admitting that Big Tech’s censorship campaign is really about purging all conservative media,” wrote Donald Trump Jr. “How long before Big Tech and their Democrat friends move to censor and purge
@BreitbartNews, @DailyCaller and other conservatives voices from their platforms?”

“1. Not an Alex Jones fan. 2. I think he often pushes conspiracy theories. 3. I don’t support platforms silencing him. 4. I think what is happening is dangerous to free speech. 4. Some platforms have become too vital in our system for a few to have such power over access to them,” wrote Breitbart reporter Brandon Darby.

In the case of Jones, the Streisand Effect, defined as “a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet” has taken over.

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller
A nothingburger all along.
Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.
Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.
The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.
The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.
The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.
“Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.”
It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.
Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
