It was revealed on Monday that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been holding off-the-record dinners at his home with top conservative thought leaders hoping to curry favor with them and form alliances.
Politico reported that Zuckerberg started his dinner series in July in an attempt to mitigate a public relations disaster as President Donald Trump accuses his monolithic corporation of “bias.”

It was widely reported over the summer that President Trump is looking into executive action that would stop Facebook and other leftist-dominated tech firms from engaging in viewpoint discrimination against conservatives.
“The discussion in Silicon Valley is that Zuckerberg is very concerned about the Justice Department, under Bill Barr, bringing an enforcement action to break up the company,” a cybersecurity researcher who formerly worked in the government told Politico. “So the fear is that Zuckerberg is trying to appease the Trump administration by not cracking down on right-wing propaganda.”
Zuckerberg is clearly concerned about the White House, and is attempting to curry favor with conservative thought leaders in a last-ditch attempt to weaken the administration’s resolve.
“I’m under no illusions that he’s a conservative but I think he does care about some of our concerns,” said one right-leaning individual who is aware of Zuckerberg’s influence-peddling strategy.
Individuals Zuckerberg has reportedly dined with include Fox News host Tucker Carlson, talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell, neoconservative Sen. Lindsey Graham, Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York, Town Hall editor Guy Benson, think-tank contributor Matt Continetti, and ‘Never Trump’ crusader Ben Shapiro.
A spokesperson for Facebook downplayed the importance of the gatherings, saying, “For years, Mark Zuckerberg has met with elected officials and thought leaders all across the political spectrum.”
A source close to the situation told Politico that Zuckerberg talked with the right-wing personalities about “free expression, unfair treatment of conservatives, the appeals process for real or perceived unfair treatment, fact checking, partnerships, and privacy.”
However, Zuckerberg is in a no-win situation where everyone across the political spectrum is angry at him. Opportunistic politicians like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) pressure him from the Left, demanding that Facebook act as a truth commission in order to censor President Trump heading into the 2020 presidential election.

Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a stern letter to Facebook in June, warning Zuckerberg that he must censor any information that makes their political party look bad or face the consequences.
“We are concerned that you and your company are not taking these occurrences seriously and are grossly unprepared for the 2020 election,” they wrote. “Specifically, we are concerned that there may be a potential conflict of interest between Facebook’s bottom line and immediately addressing political disinformation on your platform.”
“Leading up to 2020 we know that combating misinformation is one of the most important things we can do,” Facebook’s vice president of U.S. public policy, Kevin Martin wrote back to the Democrats.
Facebook’s balancing act is not succeeding, and even if they do buy off a handful of conservative talkers, it likely will not be enough to convince President Trump to relent. Zuckerberg may fall short of achieving his Big Brother goals.
Facebook Protects Leftist Arsonists Starting Wildfires, Promotes Global Warming Propaganda
The censorship is increasing.
Tech giant Facebook is banning all chatter of potential arsonists causing wildfires that are rocking states like Oregon and California on the west coast.
Andy Stone, the veteran Democrat operative who runs communications for Facebook, made the announcement in a Twitter post:
This is consistent with our past efforts to remove content that could lead to imminent harm given the possible risk to human life as the fires rage on. (2/2)

At the same time, Facebook is redirecting people to globalist propaganda about climate change. They are putting this into users’ news feeds.
While Facebook may want to dismiss the notion that the wildfires on the west coast were started by arsonists, the authorities are already apprehending suspects who are believed to have started fires.
Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, has been hit with two charges for arson, 14 counts of reckless endangering, and 15 counts of criminal mischief. Law enforcement believe that Bakkela’s blaze caused “significant damage.”
“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.
Similar to Facebook, the deep state is covering for the behavior of the leftist anarchists as well.
“FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon. With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue. Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources,” the FBI said in a statement.
Big League Politics reported last week about another far-left extremist who has been charged with setting fires:
A man with a lengthy history of left-wing political activism and a several misdemeanor convictions was arrested for allegedly setting a fire on a Washington highway as devastating wildfires burn throughout the western United States in Oregon, Washington and California.
Jeffrey Acord is a longtime Black Lives Matter activist and rioter who first was criminally charged with riot offenses during a 2014 Seattle protest, in which BLM activists reacted to the decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. Accord was arrested and charged with concealed carry violations at that event.
The Pullayup, Washington Police department claims to have caught Acord in the act of setting a fire in the median of Highway 167 in the state. He’s being charged with reckless burning in the second degree, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.
In a shocking twist, Acord livestreamed his own arrest. He argued that he merely called police to report the fire, denying that he had anything to do with the fire’s origin, before police arrested him.
It is time for the organized Left to be treated like the associated forces of terrorism that they are and dealt with swiftly.
