Lawyer Threatens to Sue ADL for Defamation of Ben Garrison

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, political cartoonist Ben Garrison was disinvited from the White House Social Media Summit.

Garrison, who has become one of the leading cartoonists during the Trump era, has been repeatedly smeared as “anti-Semitic” by his detractors.

Among them, has been the Anti-Defamation League, which has said that Garrison is “known for cartoons with right-wing, anti-government and conspiratorial themes.”

Ironically, the ADL has  defamed Garrison with a cartoon that is falsely ascribed to him, which precipitated Garrison’s eventual removal from the White House Summit.

However, other individuals such as trial lawyer Robert Barnes are taking notice of the ADL’s libelous behavior.

He even threatened to sue the ADL for defamation if it persisted in smearing Garrison for a cartoon that he never even created in the first place:

It will be ironic to have to sue the “Anti-Defamation League” for…defamation. (ADL covered up racism previously when it suited their allies). Yet, they continue to libel @GrrrGraphics with a fake cartoon falsely ascribed to him. Retract, or get sued @ADL.

 

President Trump set up the Social Media Summit to talk about the “opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment” according to White House spokesperson Judd Deere.

Deere claims that the president “wants to engage directly with these digital leaders in a discussion on the power of social media.”

The White House did not confirm the full list of invitees, however social media powerhouses Facebook, Twitter, and Google all confirmed to have not received an invitation from the White House.

Some of the guests rumored to be in attendance at this event are conservative groups such as Turning Point USA, the Heritage Foundation, PragerU, and James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. BLP reported on President Trump expressing his disapproval with social media and its alleged bias towards conservative commentators.

On Friday, July 5, 2019, Garrison confirmed that he was among those invited to the summit. Garrison thanked Trump on Twitter for his original invitation saying “Honored to be invited to the White House! Thank You Mr. President!”

 

 

Garrison has been one of the fiercest proponents of President Trump’s America First agenda.

The cartoonist has built a reputation for exposing legacy institutions like the military-industrial complex and ridiculing the political establishment’s attempts to derail Trump.

Such attacks against sacred pillars of the political establishment do leave individuals like Garrison susceptible to attacks from the legacy media.

His latest disinvitation from the White House just goes to show how politically correct discourse has become in America.

Say anything outside the index card of allowable opinion and you might be branded as “anti-Semitic” or “racist”.

Have Chinese Interests Infiltrated Facebook?

Although globalization has some benefits, such as a greater basket of goods and services that citizens can enjoy along with the exchange of ideas, it does come with some bad effects. Namely, the importation of bad ideas such as the social credit system and potential subversive agents from peer competitors.

This case is most notable with regards to the U.S.’s relationship with China.  Sohrab Ahmari of the New York Post wrote an article titledMeet your (Chinese) Facebook censors” highlighting how Facebook has slowly but surely imported China’s social credit model.  According to an exchange between Ahmari and a former Facebook insider, there are apparently at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship”.

The Facebook source told Ahmari “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ”

The insider disclosed an internal directory of the team that handles the bulk of this work. Ahmari gave a brief overview of what this censorship team does:

It’s called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based at Facebook’s offices in Seattle. Many have Ph.D.s, and their work is extremely complex, involving machine learning — teaching “computers how to learn and act without being explicitly programmed,” as the techy website DeepAI.org puts it.

The “teaching” involved in this process, has certain content pop at the top of a user’s Facebook feed, which allegedly gets Facebook’s software gatekeepers performance bonusess, according to the ex-insider. Similarly, this involves Facebook censors making sure that other content show “up dead-last.”

Ahmari cited the case of a New York Post article of the Biden family’s interactions with Chinese companies as one example of Facebook working to suppress the dissemination of controversial content that exposes the ruling class’s behavior.

The censorship Facebook engages is quite clever and not always apparent to the naked eye. The ex-insider detailed the following:

It all makes for perhaps the most chillingly sophisticated censorship mechanism in human history. “What they don’t do is ban a specific pro-Trump hashtag,” says the ex-insider. Instead, “content that is a little too conservative, they will down-rank. You can’t tell it’s censored.”

Ahmari did not name any of the employees at Facebook involved in the acts of censorship. He did, however, want to showcase “how  foreign nationals from a state that still bans Facebook have their hands on the levers of social media censorship here in America.”

The op-ed editor of the New York Post claims that the Hate-Speech Engineering team’s staff consists of a research scientist “based at the Seattle office who earned his master’s degree in computer engineering from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, according to his LinkedIn profile.” He continued highlighting other employees who had connections to China:

Another member of the team, a software engineer for machine learning based in Seattle, earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Jilin University in northeast China. Still another, an engineering manager, earned his bachelor’s in computer science at Nanjing University in eastern China.

Another software engineer previously worked for the Communist-backed conglomerate Huawei, as well as the Beijing National Railway & Design Institute of Signal and Communication.

It’s up in the air if these Chinese nationals are connected to the CCP and receiving direct orders from them. That said, it cannot be ignored that immigration gets geopolitical when countries use subversive elements to undermine other countries.

BLP has reported on extensive cases of Chinese nationals getting busted for corporate and military espionage. Politics does not end because of increased trade between nations via “free” trade deals. This is one of the many risks of open borders and uncontrolled globalization.

A balance must be made between economic dynamism and the maintenance of national security. To tackle this, the U.S. will need an immigration timeout to allow for immigration assimilation and uphold national security interests.
