Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is recommending to Attorney General Bill Barr that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg receive a criminal referral “for materially false statements made to Congress while testifying under oath.”
“As a member of this body, I question Mr. Zuckerberg’s veracity, and challenge his willingness to cooperate with our oversight authority, diverting congressional resources during time-sensitive investigations, and materially impeding our work,” Gaetz wrote in a letter released on Monday.
“Accordingly, I respectfully refer Mr. Zuckerberg to the Department for an investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§1001, 1505, and 1621 for materially false statements made to Congress while testifying under oath,” Gaetz added.
Zuckerberg testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee on April 10, 2018, and then again in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee a day later. Zuckerberg denied repeatedly that there was any bias against his conservatives on his platform in terms of content moderation policies.
Big League Politics reported last month on how Project Veritas produced undercover video showing Facebook content moderators boasting about how they suppress conservative and pro-Trump content on the platform:
Guerrilla journalism outfit Project Veritas released information on Tuesday from a Facebook insider who is blowing the whistle about the company’s biased anti-conservative content moderation policies.
Zach McElroy, who was formerly a content moderator for Facebook employed by the firm, Cognizant, spoke out against the company’s Big Brother censorship policies to Veritas.
“Facebook is, needless to say, a behemoth of a company, and most people – including most of my former coworkers who didn’t even find these abuses objectionable – would be terrified of ever speaking out publicly against them,” McElroy wrote on his GoFundMe page.
“Threatening NDAs ensured most of our silence, but nothing can stop the truth, and the courage of past [Veritas] whistleblowers gave me the confidence to step forward and expose the company for its egregious stifling of free speech and rampant abuse toward conservative voices,” he added.
The Veritas disclosure showed McElroy speaking with James O’Keefe, the organization’s founder, about how Facebook censors conservative content. It also features candid remarks from other content moderators explaining or even bragging about how they crush right-wing dissent on the platform.
“It’s a very progressive company who’s very anti-MAGA,” said Steve Grimmett, who serves as the team lead of content review for Facebook content moderation firm, Accenture.
“If a Trump post was to come up and it was promoting Trump, then I can take that down, then I feel like that would be very impactful,” said Facebook content moderator Lara Kontakos.
“If someone is wearing a MAGA hat I’m going to delete them for terrorism and I’m just going to like go crazy,” Kontakos added.
McElroy explained to O’Keefe how Facebook knowingly operates under double standards that punish conservative spech, and how the company flouts their own terms of service to promote a left-wing political agenda.
“Well, this is an image, I believe it’s in an art museum in Portland. They put this up as a bit of a political statement,” McElroy said regarding a lewd drawing of President Trump getting his throat slit.
“Facebook actually reacted to this at least internally. They gave us a memo saying that this would not violate for violence or incitement, or anything else really, and so we were told to leave this image up,” he added.
To contrast, an anti-gun control meme featuring failed Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke getting shot with a cartoon gun by popular Looney Tunes character Elmer Fudd was banished from the platform.
Veritas founder James O’Keefe fully supports Gaetz’s push for the technocratic oligarch to be investigated for potential criminal acts.
“If someone—anyone—lies to a lawmaker, he or she is deliberately manipulating the legislative process,” O’Keefe said.
“I urge DOJ to act quickly and investigate Mark Zuckerberg before Americans vote in November,” he added.
If Zuckerberg is charged and found guilty of giving false testimony to Congress, he could face up to five years in prison.
Twitter Targets Alternative Video Platform Bitchute as Big Tech’s Censorship Crackdown Intensifies
Big Tech wants to cripple the free flow of information.
The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship.
Independent journalist Tim Pool made the discovery in a Twitter post:
Twitter seems to have blocked Bitchute

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.
Violent, racist & harmful videos are posted on social media platforms using the video-sharing platform BitChute as the host – circumventing the ban most major platforms have placed on the sharing of hate content.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.
In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.
“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”
Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.
The Bitchute links to banned videos from the courageous medical whistleblowers have been posted many different times onto Twitter:

Twitter will not allow users to access these videos without providing the following warning:
As Twitter targets Bitchute for allowing freedom of speech on their monopoly platform, they are actively allowing pedophiles to discuss their lustful desires for children.
Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter explicitly amended their terms of service so pedophiles are allowed on the platform to talk about how they want to rape kids, with child nudity being permissible in certain instances:
Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.
“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.
Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.
“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.
Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.
Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform.
“Many of us have worked with a group of such non-offending pedophiles, also known as anti-contact MAPs (Minor-Attracted Persons), in a peer support network called Virtuous Pedophiles (@virpeds), as well as in other support networks,” they wrote in their letter.
“Recently, a prominent member of Virtuous Pedophiles, who goes by the pseudonym Ender Wiggin (@enderphile2), had his account permanently suspended by Twitter. At least one other member of the same network, Šimon Falko (@simgiran), also had his account permanently suspended around the same time, and a number of other accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs have since been permanently or temporarily suspended,” they added.
They argued that denying pedophiles a place on the social media platform may lead to these so-called virtuous pedophiles acting on their impulses to sexually victimize kids.
The values of these tech giants do not align with American values. If these hostile actors refuse to abide by American values, they ought to lose their Section 230 privileges under the Communications Decency Act.
