ORWELLIAN: Facebook Announces Prohibition of Naming Alleged Anti-Trump ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella

Facebook is protecting the impeachment witch hunt of President Donald Trump.

Social media provider Facebook has announced that it will be prohibiting any mention of the anti-Trump whistleblower on their platform.

The whistleblower, widely believed to be 33-year-old CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, filed a complaint against the President based on his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky without any first-hand knowledge of the situation.

Ciaramella allegedly made his complaint anonymously, but has been fingered as the source in recent days by many media outlets. Even the House Intelligence Committee, under the stewardship of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), unmasked Ciaramella in Congressional impeachment testimony in a display of remarkable incompetence.

But still, Facebook is reportedly banning any mention of Ciaramella on their platform in the hopes of putting the genie back in the bottle in order to promote the political lynching of President Trump.

“Any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name violates our coordinating harm policy, which prohibits content ‘outing of witness, informant, or activists,'” a Facebook representative said in a statement on Friday.

“We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate,” they added.

Facebook caved to the deep state shortly after Twitter initiated a similar policy by issuing restrictions and temporary bans against accounts that shared the name of the dubious whistleblower:

The alleged deep state “whistleblower” who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump over his correspondence with Ukraine – now widely believed to be 33-year-old CIA officer Eric Ciaramella – is being protected by a political establishment desperate to keep the impeachment circus going.

Social media is taking cues from the fake news, which steadfastly refuses to disclose Ciaramella’s name. Twitter is even restricting and temporarily banning accounts that mention Ciaramella as the Big Tech giant grows desperate to prevent the truth from going viral.

Unfortunately for Twitter, the name is already widely circulating despite their best efforts. The fake news freaked out after Donald Trump Jr. posted Ciaramella’s name on his Twitter account earlier today…

The story started to gain traction last week after Ciaramella was named as the likely whistleblower in a report published by journalist Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations (RCI). This has been largely ignored by the fake news and is now being censored by social media platforms, as the coordinated suppression effort rears its ugly head yet again.

Tom Kuntz, who works as editor of RCI, compares what he is seeing from the establishment to a mafia code of silence.

“The silence has been deafening,” he told The Week. “It’s almost like there’s a code of omerta [the Mafia vow of silence] about what media organizations can report. . . . There’s a herd mentality and a reluctance to cut against the grain.”

The coordination between the deep state, the fake news, and Big Tech companies to foment the witch hunt against President Trump is truly unprecedented, and represents an existential threat to U.S. democracy that the Russians could never dream of achieving.

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.
