Threat of big tech’s “Chinese-style social credit ranking” growing in West

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Allum Bokhari, senior technology correspondent at Breitbart News, joined me to discuss why people are growing more concerned about threats to their free speech from Silicon Valley big tech companies.

You may have heard about the "social credit" system in China, where each citizen's "anti-social" behaviour online and off is scored by the government.

Recently, Alex Jones showed up in the halls of Congress to yell at Google CEO Sundar Pichai as he arrived to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

Watch as Allum explains why we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of this kind of anger from people as the scolds at big tech increasingly connect to big government.

I looked at my last comment. Let me summarize…5G is going to be very bad and it will allow complete intrusion into our lives, beyond anything we know right now. 5G is Skynet complete into the civilian world.

Skynet already exists. Just wait until too much AI is put into it. We are the masters of our own doom yet again. 5G is 600MHz to 6GHz(low band) 6Ghz to 100GHz?(high band) in the radio spectrum. I believe 3GHz to 300GHz is the microwave band, but the higher part of that band are known as mm waves. This all falls under the category of non ionizing radiation. Now its all very complicated, but non ionizing radiation isn’t suppose to do as much damage obviously as ultraviolet, x-rays and gamma rays. But I am pretty sure I wouldn’t want to live under a tower pumping out microwaves at God knows what power level. Radio techs cooked hot dogs in front of the microwave dishes used for our military. They will be starting on low band, but shoot 6Ghz is higher than anything I am familiar with. I also wouldn’t want anything transmitting 6GHz at high power anywhere near my house. But if this is all part of the “internet of things”, which is basically Skynet, we are building the devices that will allow our freedoms and eventual destruction to take place. I can’t imagine what 100GHz will do. 100GHz I believe is absorbed superficially at skin level. All that energy diffused into your skin? Skin cancer anyone? I will admit, I am a dinosaur and all this is getting beyond me. Give me a good old HF/VHF/UHF transceiver and I am good. Satellite and digital traffic packet communication is where I get off and go home. Computer Nerds 1 – Radio Nerds 0

5 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

I wonder if this is related to the vague threat that Nicholas Conklin keeps making about "the hammer coming down on Monday?

I’ll bet $50 that Trudeau is all over this concept. His latest media buyout would sure seem to indicate it what with “trusted media sources” and all.

Can trusted citizens be far behind? When Alberta separates, it definably needs a first and second amendment plus a third amendment that hangs as a traitor anyone who tries to eliminate the first two.

The one thing I can say for sure is that if the USA loses their free speech, then not only is the rest of the world hooped as far as freedom of speech is concerned, but the world has already been hooped as far as freedom of speech is concerned because the USA will be the last to go down … no doubt kicking and screaming. Canada will go down with a silent whimper.

I’d love to see the whole show on this subject of Google. I am a registered subscriber. Why am I only getting the short version of the interview with Alam Bokari? Please send me a link to this full interview. Thank you. Luciana
