“After Bayer AG, which recently acquired the Round-Up herbicide in a $63 billion buyout of Monsanto, has once again been found guilty in a California court for not informing customers that their product can cause cancer. The Trump Administration on the other hand, wants that ruling overturned. In August of 2018, Monsanto lost their first big lawsuit alleging that the active ingredient of their Round-Up herbicide causes cancer. Ever since that day, thousands of plaintiffs have began suing Monsanto for causing their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. One of those plaintiffs is Edwin Hardeman, who was the first to challenge Monsanto in a federal court. The judge overseeing Edwin’s suit even restricted him from discussing Monsanto’s past, Hardeman’s ‘personal history’, and information about regulatory decisions, barring him from talking about anything besides whether Round-Up caused his cancer. Despite what his attorneys argued was a huge disadvantage, he was still able to get his point across, won the suit against Monsanto, and was awarded $25 million. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Justice Department want to see that ruling overturned by a higher court, according to a Ninth Circuit court brief filed in December. Bayer’s stock soared immediately thereafter. This decision isn’t surprising seeing as though Trump ran his whole campaign on the economy, not environmental or health safety. According to a 2017 Associated Press analysis, almost half of Trump’s EPA appointees have previous industry ties, with about one-third previously working as lawyers or lobbyists for chemical or fossil fuels companies like Monsanto. Twenty-four ethics waivers were signed by Trump pick Don McGahn allowing former industry members to oversee the industries they used to work for. In November, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Trump Administration had unlawfully excluded millions of tons of toxic materials from undergoing safety review, including common products such as fire retardant, house paint, and insulation. The Trump Administrations argument as to why the Hardman case should be ignored is that the Trump EPA does not classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, and therefor Bayer and Monsanto have no need to label it as such. However, a plethora of research shows the opposite. In a recent 2019 meta-analysis, scientists found that glyphosate exposure could raise the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer by as much as 41%. It doesn’t appear that the Trump Administration will allow Bayer’s stock to go down without a fight, but I have a feeling that isn’t going to stop victims of Round-Up from seeking justice.”
“The Soleimani Assassination was an outright, aggressive and unbridled Act of War committed by the US against Iran on January 3rd, 2020. We saw both sides of Trump in the Soleimani assassination incident; firstly by claiming and boasting that he had ordered the assassination, and conversely by falsely claiming that Soleimani was about to order attacks on US embassies and US forces. The truth is the Soleimani assassination was planned far in advance. Recent reports also indicate that Israel wasn’t just involved in planning the Soleimani assassination; they also actively contributed to it with their spies and informants who passed along information to the US about Soleimani’s whereabouts so that he could be targeted and killed. It is very plausible that Trump killed Soleimani to appease Israel and some of the Israeli-owned Republican senators (e.g. Zionist war hawks Lindsey Graham and Tom Cotton) whose support Trump needs in his upcoming impeachment trial. Oh and by the way — the Soleimani assassination was also justified by the Pentagon and State Department because they claimed he had killed 600 American deaths. That was another evidence-free claim (another lie) by the US Military. Trump has affirmed numerous times that ‘we will take oil’ in Syria and that the US sells its troops to nations like Saudi Arabia and South Korea. Trump has also claimed that the US will not leave Iraq unless the Iraqis pay for the US base there! The truth is that US soldiers illegally occupying Iraq has nothing to do with defeating radical Islamic terrorism but rather everything to do with controlling the country, pilfering its resources and using Iraqi territory as a foothold for waging endless regional wars. In many ways, Trump has ripped off the sweet-sounding, lying face of the US corporate-military NWO empire to reveal that it’s all about expansion, invasion, occupation, theft, getting paid and getting a return on investment. It has absolutely nothing to do with genuine defense, honor, integrity or keeping Americans safe.”
“It’s become painfully obvious that the ruling class wants to get us into another war, where the young and poor are shipped off to die while the politicians and government defense contractors get rich. Backed by the ruling class, Big Tech’s censorship is nothing new; however, this time, it’s an excuse to propagate a war. The elitists who need a war to profit off of can’t convince the public to fight and die for them unless they control the narrative. That’s why speech is being censored. Big tech is just another arm of the U.S. government.”
The hypocrisy is unbelievable. In order to comply with United States sanctions on Iran, Facebook’s thought police have taken to censorship on behalf of the government. At the same time, President Donald Trump warns Iran not to use censorship.

This is especially disgusting because Instagram is very popular in Iran, where Soleimani has 82% approval
So Big Tech overlords are basically saying Iranians do not get the right to free speech because of US gov sanctions
The US empire trumps free speechhttps://t.co/BthPuxgOBC

The International Federation of Journalists condemned the censorship effort as “unprecedented in the history of social networks and in conflict with the very innate actuality of media.” In its letter to Instagram, AoIJ Tehran noted that numerous Iranian state media accounts had been removed and 15 journalists had been censored recently, which goes against and freedom of speech principles.
“These massive Big Tech corporations are Thought Police for the US government: Facebook and Instagram are removing posts expressing support for Iran’s top general Soleimani,” journalist Ben Norton tweeted. “They say it’s to comply with US sanctions, but how do posts violate sanctions?”
The answer is: they don’t. The problem is that the war sentiment and the idea that slaughtering people for our freedoms in other countries is gone. The elitists who need a war to profit off of can’t convince the public to fight and die for them unless they control the narrative. That’s why speech is being censored.
Big tech is just another arm of the U.S. government.
Any support for Soleimani will be taken down by Facebook and Instagram to comply with the USA sanctions but Trump can tweet that Iran should not close down the internet because the world is watching. He wouldn’t understand the irony of his tweet. Free speech, censorship anyone?

Hypocritically, while Facebook is acting as “thought police” on behalf of the US government (the rulers who think they own everyone), Washington has been championing “free speech” and warning Tehran against restricting the Iranian peoples’ internet access. U.S. President Donald Trump personally addressed [Iran’s] anti-government protesters — in Farsi, mind you — reassuring them of his unwavering support, according to a report by RT.
