Pre-Crime Hysteria Sweeps the Nation as Dozens are Arrested for Making Internet and Social Media ‘Threats’

The seriousness of some of these “threats” are dubious, but children are being apprehended anyway.

The nationwide hysteria following mass shootings that occurred earlier this month in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH is spiking, as dozens of people have been apprehended and charged after making supposed threats on social media and other digital forums in recent weeks.

At least 27 individuals have been arrested since the shootings, including several minors, as pre-crime becomes the new norm due to the frenzy created by emotionally-driven coverage from the fake news.

Some of the threats seem credible, including a 38-year-old truck driver who was arrested after making “credible threats to conduct a mass shooting and suicide” according to an FBI agent and a 19-year-old Chicago man of foreign descent who was charged after outlining specific plans to commit murders at an abortion facility.

However, others being targeted are children and young people swept up in the enforcement crackdown. A 13-year-old child was arrested following reports of an unnamed threat allegedly made against a Wal-Mart in Weslaco, TX. A 15-year-old boy in Volusia County, Florida was charged after making a joke in a video game chat room.

The most disturbing instance of pre-crime to emerge thus far is the case of Brandon Wagshol. The 22-year-old Connecticut resident was arrested last week and stripped of his gun rights under unconstitutional red flag laws after posting a meme on Facebook:

22-year-old Connecticut resident Brandon Wagshol was arrested on Friday for posting a meme on social media that authorities claim indicated he showed an interest in committing a mass shooting…

He was arrested after law enforcement received an anonymous tip about the meme, which prompted the arrest of Wagshol as pre-crime becomes a reality as the Bill of Rights becomes a fading memory.

“What I understand is that he didn’t make any comments on Facebook, but there may have been other memes, as they call them, that he might have reposted,” said Darnell Crosland, who is representing Wagshol as his attorney.

In addition, Wagshol’s firearms were seized under Connecticut’s red flag law – in what will become the new status quo across the country if federal lawmakers get their way. The firearms found in Crosland’s home were legal and registered to his father, but were taken anyway.

As the globalists try desperately to end free expression on the Internet and the political Left demonizes any conservative Trump supporter as an extremist or white nationalist, the pre-crime precedent being set right now could have a devastating effect on the rights of ordinary Americans before long.

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.
