Like many of you out there, I am an American voter who who trusts that our checks and balances will protect our democracy from harm.
Today has been quite a day for me. You see? I discovered that YouTube videos that I had embedded in seven different articles of mine on the HubPages platform had been deleted from their sources. However, after hearing all the stories about how big-tech companies, including Google, are demonetizing and deleting people's content and even going as far as deplatforming them, I had expected something like this to happen to me sooner or later.
I had to surf around on YouTube and on the Internet to find other copies of these same deleted videos or at least videos that were similar enough to them in their content so that I could replace the ones that had been deleted. In situations in which I wasn't able to find a copy or anything similar to a video that had been deleted at its source, I simply had to edit my articles accordingly.
Back when I was a teenager, I periodically would request Spanish-language materials from the Organization of American States ("O.A.S.") that was in Washington, D.C. That is, I would write to that organization to make such requests, because I wanted to be able to practice my Spanish that I had started to learn when I was 12 years old. What was so interesting about some of these Spanish-language publications was that they had the text of constitutions from different nations in both Central and South America as well as the Caribbean.
After reading the text of the constitutions from some of these nations, I found that they looked good on paper and they seemed to have all of the safeguards in them to prevent any of these nations from falling under a dictatorship. These constitutions each appeared to have an excellent system of checks and balances in place. Therefore, I began to wonder that, if this was the case, how it was that any of these nations had fallen under the iron fist of a military dictatorship.
In my conversations with different people about it, I came to the realization that constitutions were only as good as the government officials who enforced them. Anyone can write up a constitution for a nation. However, if nobody in the political system enforces that constitution, it serves no beneficial purpose for anyone.
It greatly concerns me that our nation has allowed itself to fall into that same embarrassing and detrimental predicament. So much is at stake here in the United States of America, and now there is a possibility that an illegitimate president (former Vice President Joe Biden) could be moving into the White House on January 20, 2021.
I stumbled across a video of an interview with General Michael Flynn that gave me hope that maybe our nation will be saved from the clutches of a Biden administration. Unfortunately, the video no longer appears on YouTube, but allow me to elaborate on its contents.
I reasoned that the only way that anything that General Flynn said in the above-described interview could be true would be if President Donald J. Trump was going to have the troops from the National Guard: (1) arrest former Vice President Biden, Senator Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Chuck Schumer; (2) court-martial them; and (3) then ship them off to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to be tried in a military tribunal for numerous serious crimes against our nation. In that event, former Vice President Biden and Senator Harris could not be sworn into office on January 20, 2021 and Ms. Pelosi would not become our acting president while President Trump was having the United States military gather the evidence from the seven contested states (Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico) to prove that the 2020 American presidential election was stolen from him.
When big-tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google and the likes are allowed to censor our own president here in the United States of America, we have to be aware that the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution is under attack. The decisions that these big-tech companies are making to deplatform people who disagree with their political views are undeniably arbitrary and manipulative at best.
1. Big-tech Companies Are Singling Out Our 45th President And His Supporters For Censorship
Regardless of whether you are a conservative, a moderate like me, or even a liberal, merely disagreeing with the political viewpoints of anyone in control of these big-tech companies could put you on their blacklist and get you deplatformed. These companies' misconduct in this regard is a clear disrespect for people's 1st-Amendment rights and a recipe for lawlessness among the elites of our society.
It can remind you of that biker who rides around late at night and refuses to put any kind of device on his motorcycle to silence the loud noise that he makes to disturb people's sleep. He enjoys making others around him miserable; but if anyone whom he torments should throw a large rock in his pathway and cause him to get sent flying off his motorcycle in a devastating accident, then his victims become the bad guys instead of him as far as he is concerned. It's like a monumental double standard that is so typical of sociopaths.
Judge Jeanine Pirro attacked the above-described misconduct by big-tech companies on the Fox Business network. You can watch her interview in the video below.
Judge Jeanine Pirro Denounces Big-Tech Companies For Suppressing Free Speech In Our Nation
According to Judge Pirro in her interview above, big-tech companies are on a power trip insofar as silencing our 45th president has inflated their egos to a dangerous magnitude. We could all be in for very hard times because of it.
2. Big-Tech Companies Could Reduce The Quality Of Life In Our Nation Through Censorship
If big-tech companies are allowed to abuse anyone who disagrees with their political ideologies, our nation could be destined for very hard and trying times. Patrick Byrne can tell you all about it in his interview with David Rubin in the video below.
David Rubin And Patrick Byrne Talk About The Social Media Purge
In the interview above, Mr. Byrne warns that our nation could be in what he refers to as the fourth stage of a psyop. Merely questioning the integrity of the 2020 American presidential election was what got him banned from Twitter.
According to Mr. Byrne, big-tech companies have taken on a Marxist mentality, and loopholes in our laws are what is allowing them to get away with their actions to suppress anyone who does not agree with their political ideologies. Our nation is, therefore, running the risk of becoming a police state.
In his interview above with David Rubin, Mr. Byrne complains that you cannot have a healthy debate with any of these left-wing extremists anymore. Big-tech companies' above-described misconduct is living proof of that fact. Mr. Byrne's biggest advice to these corporate moguls who run these kinds of big-tech companies is to keep the rules simple and don't get involved in ideological warfare. Foreign leaders are now starting to question the actions of these big-tech companies, and the good news is that this kind of notoriety of theirs is beginning to backfire on them in more ways than imaginable.
3. Big-Tech Companies Are Beginning To Experience The Consequences Of Their Actions
Foreign leaders throughout the world have denounced the actions of Twitter and have expressed their disapproval of a Chief Executive Officer of a tech giant being able to decide whether or not a sitting president has free speech. Scott Goulet gives the details of these events in his video below.
Scott Goulet Reports That Foreign Leaders Are Furious At Twitter For Banning President Donald J. Trump From Its Platform
According to his video above, foreign leaders from all sides of the political spectrum have expressed disgruntlement against Twitter for disrespecting a sitting president and they do not feel that it should be the decision of tech giants on whether or not a president or any kind of national leader should be able to exercise his or her freedom of speech.
Because investors are becoming concerned that Twitter's actions against President Trump are going to alienate others from their platform, many of them have sold their Twitter stocks and have pulled out their money from that company. As a result, Twitter has suffered a 12 percent tumble in their stock, and that company has, therefore, suffered a 5-billion-dollar loss. Jack Dorsey, who is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Twitter, is being confronted with the reality that he is not a king despite that his ego has fooled him into believing so.
After imposing a suppressive level of censorship against those who do not align with their political ideologies, the moguls of these offending big-tech companies are learning the hard way that the private sector does depend on the money and the capital of others and, therefore, their actions can have consequences in that respect. Dr. Steve Turley also explains what is now happening to Twitter in that respect, in his video below.
Twitter Stock Plummets As Big-Tech Coup Backfires
In his video above, Dr. Turley also brings up the 5-billion-dollar loss in Twitter's market value as a result of their decision to ban President Trump from their platform. He also reports that there may even be criminal charges being brought against Twitter and other big-tech companies.
Dr. Turley further informs that Parler and Gab are becoming alternative platforms for those who do not want to deal with Twitter. He states that he came across information that reported that the imminent fall of big-tech companies could bring about the rise of a blockchain economy. I actually describe blockchain technology in my article titled "The Hive Writing Platform Vs. The Steem Writing Platform."
4. My Conclusion To This Topic
When big-tech companies decided to mess with our 45th president, they were barking up the wrong tree. Sure, we, as Americans, may all be in for an unpleasant ride in the beginning of this digital coup that big-tech companies are launching against all of those who disagree with their political ideologies. However, the corporate moguls of these big-tech companies are not going to come out of this entire masquerade smelling like a rose.
As it becomes clear that big-tech companies are overstepping their boundaries in that they are jeopardizing free speech in our nation, investors and stockholders here in our nation and abroad are going to continue to pull their money and capital out of these big-tech companies and bring them all closer to bankruptcy. Some of you readers out there may have experienced the dread of losing your YouTube account, Google account, your Twitter account, your Facebook account or something similar simply for typing the wrong comment in the wrong place at the wrong time without ever really harming anyone to whom you posted it.
Big-tech companies do not give people they ban from their platforms a very fair opportunity to appeal the actions brought against them. Those of us who have been down that road can resort to civil litigation against these big-tech companies; but unless you have a whole mint to your name, you probably know how much of an uphill battle that can be.
Luckily, alternative platforms are receiving all of the victims of these big-tech companies with open arms. This same exodus alongside the economic consequences that these big-tech companies are paying as a result of their misconduct could also cause our nation's economy to make a change for the better.

Ladies and gentlemen? You may notice that my article above is dated for February 1st, 2021, even though I initially published this same article on January 18, 2021. The reason for this is because I had to edit it in accordance to the fact that a video had been deleted from YouTube that I had previously embedded.
