    New California Bill Would ELIMINATE Free Speech, Require ‘Online Fact Checkers’

    California Senator Richard Pan, the infamous fascist who forced a mandatory vaccination law through in order to rake in money from big pharma, has decided there should no longer be free speech for anyone other than the government.  Pan’s new bill proposes to require “online fact checkers” to verify content before anything can be posted on the internet.

    Anyone who has ever said tyranny cannot come to America has been proven wrong. Pan’s new bill would basically outlaw questioning the government’s official narrative, and is reminiscent of the book burning days of Nazi Germany. The bill supposedly only targets social media in California, but as Jon Rappaport points out, once you read the bill, it applies to the whole of the internet.

    This isn’t some sort of prank either.  The leftists in power are getting desperate in their attempt to control information and produce propaganda and this is just more evidence of such.  We experienced evidence of this yesterday when SHTFPlan reported that the Department of Homeland Security has been instructed to compile a database of all journalists and online “media influencers.”

    But that’s all beginning now, here, in the “land of the free.” Last week, SHTFPlan interviewed Sarah Leach who was detained without charges for survivalist posts on her own Facebook page. But we are expected to believe that DHS has no nefarious reasoning for compiling a list of all journalists, bloggers, podcasters, or as they like to call them: “media influencers”?

    FedBizOpps.gov posted a relatively benign-sounding subject: “Media Monitoring Services” by DHS. Of course, the government always makes basic human rights violations sound benign when we all know they are anything but. The details of the attached Statement of Work outline a plan to gather and monitor the public activities of media professionals and influencers and are enough to cause nightmares of constitutional and basic fundamental human rights proportions,particularly as the freedom of the press is under attack worldwide. Yes, that includes in the United States.

    And “attack” is not hyperbolic. -SHTFPlan

    Should this bill in California pass, the state will actually have major regulations on free speech and give themselves the power to prosecute “speech criminals.”  Don’t believe it? Well, the bill is short.  Here’s what it says:

    SB 1424

    This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

    (a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.

    (b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:

    (1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.

    (2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.

    (3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.

    (4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

    (c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.

    In other words, no one may use their human right to free speech to question the government’s official story anymore.  Regardless of whether the “facts” given make any sense or not, people will be banned from saying so.

    In case you believe there are too many websites and blogs based in California to enforce a new draconian law, let me explain how the game works. Behind closed doors, the state government would decide to focus on a few big issues. For example, gun control, vaccines, and immigration. Enforcement agencies would go after the biggest Internet operations expressing politically unacceptable points of view on those subjects. At first. A spread of smaller operations would feel the heat later.

    So-called fact checkers would come from government-supported groups who agree with Official Positions. In other words, they wouldn’t be fact checkers at all. They would be prime news fakers.Jon Rappaport

    Although this and the database of journalists operated by DHS are huge human and constitutional rights violations, it’s become abundantly clear that the government does not care at all and will continue to advance tyranny and grab more power for themselves.  When is the breaking point? It used to be a 3% tax on tea.  Now, it certainly feels like there’s nothing Americans won’t give up to keep giving the government more power over their lives.

      No rights are absolute according to government. The Founding Fathers should have called the first ten Amendments, “Bill Of Privileges”. President John Adams penned the Alien and Sedition Act criminalized making false statements that were critical of the federal government (Sedition Act of 1798). He, a Founding Father damn sure knew the intent and language of the First Amendment as its ink was barely dry. The problem is who determines that false is? Who’s data is accepted as true? Certainly Police Testimony (not), Government compiled data (not), Video (very questionable), Resources of higher education (funded by globalist foundations? I’ll pass).

      In the end who protects us from our protectors? This is the inherent problem with government and the larger it becomes the worst it is. Think this is troublesome? Imagine global government.

      Sleep well.

      • Heartless says:

        Kevin – you’re correct. No rights are absolute according to (a) government. The conundrum is that a ‘right’ exists outside of any government’s influence or control. As you stated, from day 1 our government has been doing its level best to usurp that fact of the origin of a ‘right’. Who will protect us? We must. Hate to say it but it’s coming real close to the time we either ‘S’ or get off the pot. That for me will be a privilege. For would it not be of the highest possible honor and purpose of having life to fight and perhaps die to save what was begun so long ago?

        • Kevin2 says:

          The battle front is in the primaries, most specifically the House Of Representatives. They’re from a cost / manpower effort (pardon the pun) “A Lot Of Bang For The Buck”. Grassroots candidates without a previous (and hence potentially corrupted) political background certainly puts significant sand in the gears of the totalitarian endeavors.

          Long before bodies get sacrificed for freedom there are other alternatives of value that as of yet have not been adequately utilized. As a wise man said to me three decades ago, “The battle will be won on the soap box and ballot box because by the time you go to the cartridge box you have already lost”.

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        Kevin2, whatever govt. says is irrelevant.

      • BC1776 says:

        These days the left is treating the Bill of Rights as the Bill of Suggestions. Facism is here in Mexifornia now.

    2. watching and waiting says:

      The speaker here in my opinion is a communist agent planted to make such proposals as this and by pass the Constitution and Bill of Rights and force unlawful legislation.

      The FBI needs to get a warrant and search his house, his office his associates, his information providers.

      California is being carefully separated from The rest of The union right before our eyes with many just saying how stupid, dysfunctional it is when in reality it is being wooed away from The U.S.

      Just my opinion

      • Watching:

        You very well may be correct. We are being destroyed from within. Is this man an “immigrant” from Communist China?

        California is the food basket for the whole United States. It is beautiful coastal land. From giant redwoods that make the fine wood for homes to acres of strawberries; California is too important. Btw there is gold in California and with recent technologies, there’s plenty more to be gotten. Don’t let California be stolen from right under our noses.

        _

        • A society comes about in ways that are consistent with the central nervous systems of its individual members. The way a central nervous system is materially configured is a consequence of genetics. China came about in the form that it did because of the nature and character of its Chinese members. The man is Chinese by descent. Therefore his ideas will be consistent with what it means to have Chinese genes. Is this racist? Does race really exist? Remember, there are actually some people who believe Earth is flat. There are also some people who believe that there is no such thing as race. Look for it and you will see it. Believe in something else and you will train yourself to ignore it.

      • ronna says:

        Won’t happen! The FBI is too busy searching Trump’s associates looking for Russians!

      • Anonymous says:

        @ watching and waiting

        You’re right. However the FBI is run and controlled by the same subversive communist elements

    3. Serenabit says:

      Let’s not forget that Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and virtually all social media sites have a presence and domicile in California. If you think this wouldn’t effect anyone in the remaining States, that is a naïve willful blindness. Unfortunately we have come to a point where people will have to choose between individual rights or globalism and political correctness. I know my choice, but this is sure to split families and communities throughout the world.

    4. Moses Strongbear says:

      It would go down to each and every post on the internet limiting conversations to the easter bunny and gardening Everythingelse would be subject to censorship which what we really are being handed Its your contry you dumb wachidhus are going meekly into the night with bowed head. At least the Sioux fought back as long as they could.

    5. And why do you have a social media account? There is no such thing as privacy on social media. All you have to do is read the privacy policy you agree to, to know you should not use them.

      • laura ann says:

        I have warned others to get off social media as everything you do on these sites, is open to everyone anywhere. Other than for business advertising, people need to correspond via phone or email for privacy. Bored narcissists are the norm on these sites, some are bored losers who sit at home (mostly women). This does not incl. dating or local activities sites either, which are fine.

    6. aljamo says:

      I’m sick of these foreigners trying to dictate American policy, especially when it concerns free speech. Like Pai who made the decision to eliminate net neutrality. Free speech is just that, you can’t stop it and you can’t hide it. It’s what human beings do.

    7. Full spectrum dominance of information sources. The rules only apply to you. Question. Resist.

    8. Jim in Va. says:

      Let California go…minus all federal installations,water from the Colorado and those people and businesses that will leave due to high taxation. Whats left?

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        RICHARD PAN AND THE REST OF CA GOVT., GO F#$% YOURSELVES. COME GET ME IF YOU THINK YOU CAN.

        • TallMan says:

          Braveheart, i hate to say it, but that’s the wrong mindset. If you wait for them to come get you, you’ve waited way to long. Remember to old saying, the best defense is a good offense. The best thing to do now, is to go after them before they can effect the changes they want. Just think if the German people went after Hitler, and his people before they had complete control of Germany. Things would have turned out very differently for 6 million Jews.

    9. tempus says:

      Who runs the fact checker? Which fact checker prevails? The answer to this question is obvious: the one that supports the government’s position. If a discussion comes up about Jesus, which fact checker is correct: the trinitarians, the unitarians, the Jews, the Muslims, the Hindus, the agnostics, the atheist, etc.? And which group within these various groups prevails, as they are not uniform in their facts? Whose side would the government take in such a discussion? (Probably the Jews as they own the most politicians)

    10. rellik says:

      Typical California Fascist.
      The bill more accurately is to outlaw criticism
      of the government or Liberals act.
      The net already has a lot of “fact” checking.
      I’ve been banned on a few sites for
      stating facts that didn’t align with the
      site owners views, Free republic, Daily mail,
      Gateway pundit, 2aHawaii, are just a few.
      I don’t do Twitter or Facebook. I’ve had to warn
      some family via separate email that the things they were
      saying on Facebook could be used in court and to
      tone it down.
      The Internet is a public forum so it is
      wise not to admit to or advocate doing illegal
      things.
      There is always the “dark net” for that.

    11. Let the people who read the posts be the “fact-checkers”. If you use the internet, check the facts about what you are reading. Apparently, this senator doesn’t do this.

    12. Lookingdown says:

      Time to post online and everywhere exactly where this douche-bag and his family lives. What you do with that information
      will be up to your discretion.

    13. Shouldn’t there be a fact-checker on what Senator Pan says? Why not fact-checkers on anything said by the California legislature? How about the Governor? Fact-checkers for everybody!

    14. The social media are in the center of the controversy. The liberals are pressuring them to censor. If they do, the conservatives are upset. Legislation passed by the state government would get them off the spot. Then they could censor without upsetting people.

    15. Peter says:

      Get this fool out of the USA and back into his country CHOP CHOP!

    16. There is a recall campaign to have Senator Pan removed from office. On the 2020 Census, the people filling out the Census complete questions about citizenship. Senator Pan objects to this and is trying to pass legislation. The Census is used to determine the number of representatives that a state should have in the U.S. Congress. Since only citizens should vote, the illegal immigrants would be excluded from the population count. This means fewer representatives for California and other states with a large population of illegal immigrants.

    17. Kathy Gray says:

      Who fact checks the fact checkers?

    18. They’re not “leftists”. None of this has to do with political philosophies. This is being financed by mostly hidden corporate flows and NGO’s. This is bankster/luciferian manipulation, same as it’s been for centuries.
      Keep your eye on the ball.

      Anyone who votes for such a bill should be hung for treason.
