Big Tech Caves to CAIR, Removes Crowdsourcing Profile of Ilhan Omar Whistle-Blower

GoFundMe has removed John Guandolo’s crowdsourcing account.

Former FBI counter-terror specialist John Guandolo had his GoFundMe account suddenly removed earlier today, losing thousands of dollars in funds raised to fight back against a lawsuit in the home district of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“In its work to speak, teach, train, and consult about National Security Threats to the United States, Understanding the Threat (UTT) comes under significant assaults, threats, and legal action. This is a part of the war in which we are engaged,” Guandolo explained on his now defunct GoFundMe page.

Guandolo was raising funds on the popular crowdsourcing platform to fight a lawsuit filed by former Hennepin County Sheriff Richard Stanek filed against him and his organization. The lawsuit stems from an altercation that occurred in 2017 at the National Sheriff’s Conference in Reno, Nevada.

Hoover Institution media fellow Paul Sperry broke the news today on his Twitter account:

Guandolo posted a blog on his website explaining that he believes that the Council on American Relations (CAIR), the front group that backs extremist Muslim legislators like Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), that is behind GoFundMe’s decision as the anti-American special interest group has taken a keen interest in the case.

“The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today said it is monitoring former Minnesota Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek’s $1 million civil lawsuit against anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist John Guandolo and his anti-Muslim hate group,” CAIR wrote in a press release about the case.

CAIR brags about how they convince organizations, including Sheriff’s offices and other law enforcement personnel, to ban Guandolo and his associates from educating them about the nature of Islam.

“CAIR similarly welcomed a decision by Virginia’s Amherst County Sheriff’s Office to drop an event featuring Islamophobic conspiracy theorist Chris Gaubatz. Gaubatz is a former employee of Guandolo’s anti-Muslim hate group Understanding the Threat. Gaubatz is now the President of another anti-Muslim hate group, RAIR (Resistance Against Islamic Radicals),” they wrote in their press release.

Guandolo has loss the thousands of dollars raised because of GoFundMe’s ban, and it has put his trailblazing operation to keep America vigilant in the war against radical Islam in serious jeopardy.

“Lawfare, a jihadi specialty, the use of litigation to suppress truth, has been deployed against UTT to bleed us financially and take us off mission. Matters have now come to a head, and we urgently need funding to fight off this attack—and win our countersuit to teach them a lesson,” Guandolo wrote.

He is now trying to raise $15,000 on his UTT website to cover legal fees. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled to take place tomorrow at 9:00 A.M in Dallas, TX as the civil suit gets started.

Twitter Posts Job Posting for Developing Paid Subscription Service; Will Platform Become Pay-to-Use?

Will it lead to the downfall of the platform?

Published

Shares for Twitter’s stock surged more than 8% on Wednesday as the company posted an online job listing for a developer who would work on a new system designed as a pay-to-use platform.

The job listing advertises the opening for a project team termed “Gryphon.” The company describes the team as creating a “subscription platform” that “can be reused by other teams in the future.”

In a statement to CNN on the job listing, Twitter underplayed the announcement, stating that it was only a job listing, not a product announcement.

We’re conducting this survey to assess the interest in a new, more enhanced version of Tweetdeck. We regularly conduct user research to gather feedback about people’s Twitter experience and to better inform our product investment decisions, and we’re exploring several ways to make Tweetdeck even more valuable for professionals.

CEO Jack Dorsey has resisted shareholder demands to reorganize Twitter to prioritize profitability, most recently fending off a buyout attempt staged by oligarch Paul Singer challenging his leadership of the company. Dorsey kept his position of power over the company after reaching an agreement with profit-hungry shareholders, and the new development of paid subscription software could signal he intends to further satisfy them.

The company’s major investors will likely be pleased by any sign the company intends to convert its service into a pay-to-use model, evolving away from the tradition business model of micro-targeted ads towards its user base. However, a change to a subscription model could prove to be a threat to Twitter’s appeal, especially when newer free speech platforms are gunning for the platform’s user base and the company caves to the demands of censorious liberal journalists in suspending a variety of public figures deemed inconvenient to the neoliberal societal model.

Ultimately, the greed and thirst for power of the privileged elites of Silicon Valley could possibly bring about an end to their era of domination over online political speech, heralding a renaissance of the internet.
