Oligarch George Soros is Whining About a Facebook Conspiracy to Re-Elect Trump

Published

on

Billionaire oligarch and globalist extraordinaire George Soros said that nothing is preventing Facebook from disseminating disinformation.

He even argued that the company may be conspiring with President Donald Trump to get him re-elected.

“I think there is a kind of informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook,” Soros, said on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “Facebook will work together to re-elect Trump, and Trump will work to protect Facebook so that this situation cannot be changed and it makes me very concerned about the outcome for 2020.”

Soros did not back up his claim with any evidence. “This is just plain wrong,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said in response to Soros’ unfounded conspiracy claims.

Soros has frequently used his annual Davos speech as a platform to attack the social media titan. Back in 2018, he compared Facebook to a gambling company that gets its users addicted. The billionaire globalist also emphasized the need to regulate technology firms back in 2019.

Facebook has been placed under the microscope for the Russian misinformation campaign that allegedly ran undetected on the social network in the months leading up to the 2016 election.

Since then, the company has worked to improve its technology for removing what it considers “coordinated inauthentic behavior”, which are malicious efforts by foreign governments to manipulate public opinion. However, critics counter that Trump is helped by Facebook because he has the ability to generate public outrage, which is only amplified by social media’s overall reach.

Facebook mulled over taking down political ads containing lies. However, the company decided at the beginning of this year to not proceed with this course of action. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg appealed to first amendment values and declared that no corporation should determine what political messages are true or false.

This announcement allayed the fears of Republicans, who have grilled the company about a perceived anti-conservative bias.

“Facebook basically has only one guiding principle: maximize your profits irrespective of what harm it may do to the world,” Soros said on Thursday.

In the aftermath of Soros’s 2018 Davos speech, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg asked her staff to research if Soros had a financial interest in criticizing the company. Specifically, she inquired about Soros’ holdings or trading activity. The company also hired the services of an opposition research firm to see if Soros financially backed anti-Facebook groups. The New York Times previously ran a report covering the fallout from Sandberg’s decision.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
