Twitter’s Updated Censorship Guidelines

Life in America is quickly appearing to have been using George Orwell’s “1984” as a guidebook, rather than a warning, about the way society should behave when faced with governmental tyranny, as they continue to erode away at Free Speech on their platform.

Much like the analogy of the frog in the pot of water slowly heated to a boiling point, social media such as Twitter and Facebook have been slowly turning what has been a way for people to freely share thoughts and ideas of every sort [provided there’s nothing illegal] into a tool to a fast-track on the road to authoritarianism in most of the world, including the freest nation in the world- the United States of America.

Twitter’s Terms of Service Update

On Dec. 2, Twitter quietly made changes to their Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation disallowing users to tweet things from statements regarding the efficacy and effectiveness of the mRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” to providing links to websites that have ever made a statement, in all of their articles, that Twitter would consider possibly misleading.

The original date of Twitter’s recent update can be determined by the Wayback Machine archives. In a sane world, the rules in this update appear to be logical rules for them to make; however, they are in fact nefariously using them to punish Twitter users for making many provable, correct claims that Twitter has decided is “misinformation”.

Naturally, people on both sides of the issue of mandatory vaccination have taken to Twitter to discuss the Twitter update, getting the facts both right and wrong, about everything from Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation regarding vaccine effectiveness.

False statements when attacking the integrity of others are disgusting, in my opinion. So many people obviously did not read the article or the Terms of Service because they discredit the article I found this information in, from Mediaite, saying it doesn’t contain a link to the updated Terms of Service. I used the link in the article to get to the Twitter help center, seeing the section that clearly disallows tweets regarding people’s ability to spread the virus after being vaccinated.

Strikes and Bans from Tweets

The following quote taken directly from Twitter’s Help Center contains a fraction of the Twitter rules showing what they deem misinformation which has creations based on ill-informed falsehoods. Users who break these ridiculous rules will receive anywhere from 1-4 strikes followed by a permanent ban, or as they refer to it, a permanent suspension.

“False or misleading information regarding the safety or science behind approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines, such as ‘vaccines will cause you to be sick or spread the virus, tweets that will incite fear […] of COVID-19 vaccines, [and] tweets that misrepresent or misuse official reporting tools/statistics.'”

Censoring Tweets Claiming COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Prevent Transmission

“False or misleading claims that people that have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or syptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

The initial rule change I came across, quoted above, was from the Mediaite article titled, “Twitter to Penalize Users Who Claim Vaccinated People Can Spread COVID-19,” and I was instantly concerned about the rest of the rules regarding what Twitter considers to be medical misinformation.

The updated Twitter policy directly contradicts the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] guidance, readily found on their website, which denotes the “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

Also stated on the CDC website is shown on the right, “If you are fully vaccinated and become infected […], you can spread the virus to others.”

Experts Say COVID-19 Vaccines Don’t Prevent Spread

There are many other examples of the vaccine not preventing the transmission of COVID-19 aside from the Director of the CDC, Rochelle Walinsky, and the Director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infection Diseases, Anthony Fauci making public statements, to places like CNN and the New York Times, regarding the fact that the vaccines do not prevent the vaccinated from spreading SARS-Cov-2 to infect other people.

Real-Time Evidence of Vaccinated People Spreading COVID-19

National Football Association [NFL]

Yesterday, according to NBC Sports, “the NFL saw another wave of COVID-19 positive tests […] roughly 100 [players] have tested positive the past three days […], according to the NFL’s chief medical officer.”

The NFL has one of the highest rates of vaccination [94.6%], yet within a few days they have over 100 players test positive for COVID-19. There are a maximum of 1,696 players in the NFL, with 117 players testing positive, that means 7% of NFL players are COVID-19 positive within half a week of each other!

Nearly 95% of NFL players are vaccinated against COVID-19

Apparently, the higher-ups were discussing this problematic situation and how the NFL can manage to get through the rest of this season. This is another testament that these rules imposed on everyone by these organizations and governments are not science-based, or they wouldn’t be making drastic changes to what is and isn’t allowed whenever they start losing money or the threat of shutting down the activity at hand is at risk.

The NFL’s Chief Medical Officer said in the interview that they were considering allowing test-confirmed, asymptomatic, vaccinated players to rejoin team activities sooner. Currently, the NFL’s guidelines require COVID-19 positive, vaccinated players to have consecutive negative tests at least 24 hours apart to return.

The differences in the rules between the vaccinated and unvaccinated against COVID-19 are strikingly apparent. Seeing this level of vaccination medical tyranny in sports is sad and shown below.

New Lockdowns Have Begun Around the Globe

Germany is one of the first nations to reenact their lockdowns amid uptick in cases of the much less deadly Omicron variant. In the last week, according to the WHO, with over 366,000 new cases, there is only 0.08% of those cases [and from previous weeks’ cases] who have died with COVID-19, which is approx 2,660 people.

“The situation is very serious and that we want to take further measures in addition to those already taken. The fourth wave must be broken and this has not yet been achieved,” Germany’s Acting Chancellor Merkel said according to CNN.

Not only is Germany forcing their unvaccinated residents to live as second-class citizens, but they are beginning a vaccination mandate in February 2022, dissenters will be fined monthly. Vaccinated people will now lose their vaccination status nine months after getting their last shot.

Lockdowns Have Continued In Authoritarian Australia

Australia’s restrictions on international travel have been pretty heavy through the entire pandemic, much like their restrictions imposed on their citizenry.

Travelers over 12 years and 2 months old must have a “passenger arrival permit” and an “international COVID-19 vaccination certificate” [i.e. proof of vaccination] from the country they were vaccinated in.

The internationally traveling Aussies must also show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 3 days of when they check-in for their flight on the day of departure in order to enter the country.

Those who are non-residents traveling to Australia, now including Australians who have tested negative for COVID-19 but have been deemed at-risk to acquiring it through contact tracing, must spend a minimum of 14 days in one of the quarantine camps built by the Australian Government in Victoria and the Northern Territory.

Alternative Quarantine Accommodations in Victoria
Centre of National Resilience at Howard Springs in Darwin, Northern Territory

Built by American company AECOM, and concentration camps by definition, they are given names to dismiss the nefarious nature of the quarantine facilities such as, “Alternative Quarantine Accommodations,” “Quarantine Facilities,” and “Centre of National Resilience”.

If you only read the AECOM website’s description of these facilities, you would be under the impression that they were high-class resorts that people would pay top dollar to stay at. AECOM describes the Howard Springs location as a “stylish, innovative, and sustainable accommodation village” with an “award-winning design” where “about 850 people are currently able to quarantine” where “residents have access to after-hour activities such as swimming, cycling, beach volleyball and cricket”.

AECOM creates architecture across the globe for many purposes, but this one struck me as especially bizarrely described. They state that they work with Federal and State Governments to “provide dynamic facilities that will enable appropriate levels of quarantine, preparing Australia for the long-term risks associated with the ongoing global movement.”

This is just the tip of the iceberg regarding Australia during COVID-19, but I dont want to completely derail from this article. I will be writing a piece shortly about the Australian Quarantine Camps, where I’ll go into detail about the authoritarian Australian government, its concentration camps, Australian citizens’ first-hand accounts of their experiences there, descriptions of the awful regulations as written by the Australian Government, and the extremely eerie way the camps are being presented to the rest of the world. Stay tuned.

Censoring Facts about Preventative Measures Such as Masks

“Claims that face masks cause hypoxia, bacterial pneumonia, or do not work to reduce transmission or to protect against COVID-19″

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

First of all, even the boxes of medical masks being pushed on people to be worn during the pandemic specifically warn that their mask, “will not provide any protection against COVID-19.”

The mask studies, including those I wrote about in previous articles, performed pre-pandemic conclude the same thing, over and over, that masks do more harm than good because not only do they not stop the minuscule virus particles, but because of the moist build-up of bacterias inside of the mask causing problems everywhere from bacterial pneumonia to what dentists refer to as “mask-mouth,” decay caused by mask-wearing that is akin to a drug addict’s meth-mouth.

This is an incredibly well-researched study of mask-wearing “undesirable side effects in everyday use” with tons of citations. The joylessness in half the children studied is heartbreaking.

The above study finds, “case growth was NOT significantly different between mandate and non-mandate states at low or high transmission rates, and surges were EQUIVOCAL.”

Conclusion: “Mask mandates and use are NOT associated with slower state-level COVID-19 spread”

This study, was conducted to test the efficacy of cloth masks of different materials against different sized aerosolized particles.

My research on masks proves, scientifically, that the 120nm SARS-CoV-2 is so tiny that wearing cloth/surgical masks stop as little as 7% of the virus expelled in a cough.

Most people like to make the argument that it stops large droplets of spittle. Yes, that’s true, however the saliva and mucus are just what you can see while the majority of the aerosolized particles are not hitchhiking on your spit the droplets and are invisible to the naked eye, or even a regular microscope! Bacteria, which averages 1000nm in size, is much larger and able to have a lower penetration rate than the coronavirus.

Censoring Claims Made by the Experts

Twitter users have made mention of the many local and foreign media organizations, health organizations, and governments around the world who have made the same claims about the vaccine’s effectiveness; will they too be banned from Twitter?

“False or misleading information that misrepresent the protective effect of vaccines, claims contrary to health authorities.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

In the following video clip from August 2021, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitted to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, that COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent the transmission of the disease to other people. Twitter is not only denying science, but denying the science from their own source of medical information!

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitting vaccines don’t prevent the spread of COVID-19

Since Twitter’s concern is that the “misinformation” isn’t backed by experts, and Rochelle Walensky is considered one of the foremost leading “experts,” there shouldn’t be a rule against saying vaccines don’t prevent spread by Twitter’s standards either.

The Twitter Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation not only makes provably factual claims about the COVID-19 vaccine punishable offenses, but they also address other statements that are provable scientific facts and even opinions about regulations and restrictions imposed by the government that Twitter deems misleading.

Do you think they have plans to give strikes to people like the Director of the CDC, Rochelle Walinsky, or the Director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infection Diseases, Anthony Fauci?

I highly doubt it, but they will give you a strike for making the same claim.

Labels on Tweets

“When tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim. We may apply labels to tweets that contain, for example… false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service

One of the types of punishments that strikes me as worrisome and important enough to require attention is where they will be applying labels to tweets, considering applying labels to tweets has consistently been merely the first step towards strikes and banning users. Twitter, and other social media, have been known to retroactively punish users for tweets that contain accurate information that may have some statements that were once true, but have been since then outdated.

Censoring Anecdotal or Time-Sensitive Evidence

“We may also add labels to provide context in situations where authoritative (scientific or otherwise) opinion might change, […] where local context is important, or when the potential harm is less direct or imminent [according to Twitter].

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

It is Twitter that ultimately decides how harmful “potential harm” is, how direct they consider “direct” harm, and how much time must pass for something to be considered “imminent” harm.

Sara Danker of Fiery, but Mostly Peaceful Sara

An implication made by this rule is that anecdotal testimony of people who personally was subjected to long-term damage from a COVID-19 vaccine will be censored for recounting their own experience because Twitter doesn’t consider the “potential harm [caused by reading or watching the tweet] is less direct or imminent to be worthy of sharing with the public.

Unfortunately, there is nothing preventing them from censoring posts or third-party websites for saying the vaccines could be harmful in a year, when Twitter can decide long-term effects by only looking at the first 8-weeks following injection, according to the current CDC guidelines.

“We may also apply labels on Tweets linking to content from a third-party website that would otherwise violate our policies if the content were posted directly on Twitter.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

The above quote from Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation, that I consider to be one branch of the especially dangerous path towards full-blown censorship. Twitter will be applying labels to posts from third-party websites, like the website you are currently reading from, containing statements they consider to be misinformation.

Interestingly, I was under the impression that Twitter was not a medical information website, but a social media website. If social media are to essentially be a virtual town square, let alone the censoring of everyday conversation, it is absurd for them to not only censor their users’ own opinions, let alone prevent them from suggesting other users check out outside information. The way Twitter articulates this rule suggests they do not prevent specific articles they do not agree with from a third-party website, but the entire website!

Many people likely assume that if you aren’t posting things that aren’t true then they need not worry about being censored. Though this is an assumption coming from a rational place, the obvious purpose of this rule is to narrow the pool of articles with information Twitter doesn’t want to reach the general population, in order to create an echo chamber. In essence, this will not only remove facts that people not only are unaware of that Twitter doesn’t want heard, but also eliminate entire websites if they have ever made such claims.

It may seem irrational and far-fetched to the average person, but surprisingly, the CDC website says they determined long-term side effects by looking at side effects people had within a minimum of 8 weeks.

This means if someone’s side effects didn’t present themselves until 3 months after they received their vaccine, the CDC need not review side effects beginning after that 8-week timeframe, and can discount that side effect as being considered “long-term”.

Censoring Information About Governmental Infringement

“False or misleading information about official regulations, restrictions, or exemptions pertaining to health advisories.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

Another scary step towards insane censorship is not being allowed to share information, directly on Twitter or linking to third-party websites, that Twitter considers being “misleading information about office regulations, restrictions, or exemptions” regarding COVID-19.

It is already difficult enough to see videos of the people across the globe protesting vaccine mandates in the thousands without social media preventing users from sharing them with others who wish to know such information.

This rule can even be construed to be referring to American citizens discussing high-profile topics like whether or not they believe there should be a local/state/nationwide vaccine mandate or lockdown, simply by Twitter deeming it “misleading information.”

The fact that they state “false or misleading information” in their rule implies they will not only be applying this so tweets that have unfactual information in them, opening up a whole new can of censorship worms.

Censoring Information About Testing Methodologies

“False information about widely accepted testing methodologies, such as that PCR tests are unable to detect the virus.”

Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation

Twitter has joined Facebook in censoring facts about the Polymerase Chain Reaction [PCR] tests, interestingly not referring to them as “accurate testing”, instead describing the PCR test as “widely accepted testing’.

By definition, Polymerase Chain Reaction [PCR] is a method widely used to rapidly make millions to billions of copies of a specific RNA/DNA sample, such as those a virus consists of, therefore allowing scientists to take an incrediby small sample of DNA and amplify it until there’s a large enough amount to study in detail, or the way it is being used in relation to SARS-CoV-2, its used to diagnose COVID-19.

The PCR test has been touted as a diagnostic tool by people like Anthony Fauci and other health officials. However, the inventor of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, has been filmed multiple times discrediting the use of the PCR test as a diagnostic tool. The following video shows Mullis describing why in the following video.

Kary Mullis, inventor of the PCR test

Mullis didn’t want it used as a diagnostics tool because no matter what, if you amplify the fragment of DNA or RNA enough times, you can always find enough to create a positive diagnosis.

Despite this, Fauci has stated in an interview that you will get a false positive from any RNA fragment ran at cycle thresholds (times amplified) above 35, yet, health officials have confessed to running the SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests consistently at cycle thresholds of 50+!

If you want to read more about Kary Mullis and Polymerase Chain Reaction, click here! I wrote about it after Facebook fact-checked my post containing the video above. That article also has an amusing video of Mullis talking about his rather strong opinion of Dr. Fauci.

Censorship is the Beginning of the End for Freedom

Again, Twitter improperly determines what consists of information that they consider “false or misleading,” therefore the above quote from Twitter’s Terms of Service on Medical Misinformation is decided based off of the opinions of Twitter, rather than the scientific facts about COVID-19.

Do you think they will be banning the tweeting of links to the CDC or the World Health Organiztion [WHO] since they have blatantly declared a number of things that Twitter deems “medical misinformation” to be true?

I highly doubt it, but they will punish you for making the same claims.

According to the New York Post, Dr. Anthony Fauci recently said preliminary studies indicate that Omicron has a “rather profound” ability to escape the protection provided by two-dose mRNA vaccines, the Pfizer and Moderna shots.”

“Booster vaccine regimens work against Omicron,” Fauci said, adding, “at this point, there is no need for a variant-specific booster.”

Interestingly, I was under the impression that the booster was needed because the original two shots didn’t work on the new variants. Perhaps I was ill-informed, or perhaps it is yet another change that disregards prior “facts” we were given.

Where do you draw the line? Twitter is currently setting the stage for citizens to accept authoritarianism, along with the CDC, NIH, and NIAID, at the behest of the elites and the establishment.

One thing folks should do is look into other forms of social media, and there are quite a lot of good ones out there, with more and more people joining them each day. I highly recommend using social media that fight censorship, not promote it.

Call to Action:

  • Get/stay INFORMED AND EDUCATED
  • Watch/read news from BOTH SIDES.
  • PROTECT your family and fellow Patriots
  • Engage in CIVIL DISCOURSE
  • REFUTE misinformation
  • DO NOT fall into the Third Party trap. Remember Ross Perot is how Clinton got elected.

This is a civil war between Communism and America. There is no more Democrat vs Republican right now. America needs to be united in the party of Patriots who believe in our constitution and the inherent right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

The radical Left has thrown their hail Mary, and we need to get our heads in the game and intercept that pass before it’s too late. Whether or not you believe Orange Man Bad, The Republicans who followed President Donald J Trump are the only hope for remaining a constitutional republic.
