The sickening, murderous practices of the abortion industry are increasingly being exposed by investigative journalists across the independent media, and what they’re uncovering is beyond unethical… it’s grotesque… even Stalinesque in its evil.

Today, Life Site News has gone public with an investigation that discovered Planned Parenthood is pushing abortion quotas onto clinics, turning workers there into “salespeople” who are rewarded with pizza parties when they meet their abortion quota goals. (Yeah. It’s beyond sick.)

This is just the latest in a jaw-dropping series of alarming revelations about the nefarious activities of Planned Parenthood and the “murder agenda” of the abortion industry. In previous investigations, Life Site News has unveiled how Planned Parenthood abortion centers harvest the organs of partially-born infants, murdering them in the process.

Life Site News is unquestionably the leading investigative source exposing the truth about the abortion industry today. That’s why they’re under constant attack…

Facebook Fascism: Facebook to become left-wing propaganda echo chamber with Orwellian plan to label independent journalism “fake”

Facebook has announced a new plan today that will very quickly transform the social media site into an “echo chamber” of left-wing media lies and delusional propaganda (just like we’ve recently seen pushed by the Washington Post).

The new effort will rely on left-wing “fact checker” organizations like Politifact and Snopes to determine the “truthiness” of news stories, reports Business Insider. Those stories deemed by left-wing “fact checkers” to be inaccurate will be buried in Facebook users’ feeds as a form of organized totalitarian censorship.

This Ministry of Truth “news dictatorship” plan will, of course, transform Facebook into nothing more than a news “bubble” where left-wing propaganda is repeated as “fact” while independent journalism is labeled “fake.”

This means all stories that are critical of vaccines, GMOs, Planned Parenthood or Hillary Clinton will be censored out of existence. The political left, you see, doesn’t seek to win any debate at all… their goal is to ban the debate so that you never read any views other than theirs. (They can’t win any legitimate debates or legitimate elections, so they cheat.)

In essence, Facebook has now announced it’s going to become the North Korea of social media.

Facebook’s “fact checkers” are left-wing propagandsts who despise factual journalism

“Facebook has announced it will introduce warning labels on stories they deem to be “fake news,” with the help of partisan “fact checking” organisations such as Snopes and PolitiFact,” reports Breitbart.com.

Business Insider reports that these organisations will include the likes of Snopes, ABC, Politifact, and FactCheck.org, all of which have records of left-wing partisanship — particularly throughout the 2016 election.

For example, PolitiFact infamously said it was “mostly false” when Donald Trump claimed in a presidential debate that Hillary Clinton wanted “open borders.” PolitiFact made this ruling despite Clinton being on the record at a paid speech saying “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

Trump also said that Russia has 1,800 nuclear warheads and has expanded its arsenal while the U.S. has not. PolitiFact admitted that Trump’s claim was factual, but it rated the statement as “half true” for supposedly “missing the big picture.”

In both of these cases, PolitiFact went beyond mere fact-checking and moved the goal posts in ways that benefited Clinton’s candidacy. This type of ideological “fact checking” went beyond parody during October’s presidential debates, with NBC taking Trump’s statement that Clinton “acid washed” her emails (a reference to the data deletion tool “BleachBit”) 100% literally and declaring the statement “false.”

It’s time to leave Facebook and discover alternatives like Diaspora or Gab.ai

As Facebook turns into an echo chamber of mentally ill liberal whackos, informed people will look elsewhere for uncensored, independent news.

One of the best alternatives for Facebook is Diaspora, a network of independent social media hubs run by independent, open source organizations like Natural News.

Our Diaspora hub is found at Share.NaturalNews.com, and it’s rapidly growing. There, you’ll receive every story we post, unlike Facebook where 99% of our posts are deliberately buried by Facebook itself.

Gab.ai is also rapidly growing, promising uncensored free speech in a social media format. You can find my articles posted in real time at these two accounts:

https://gab.ai/healthranger

https://gab.ai/NaturalNews

Join all these sources so that you can stay informed. Understand that Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo and all the other internet gatekeepers are now engaged in an all out war against independent news, hoping to censor it out of existence. (They’ve lost the narrative, and they lost the election. Now they’re desperate to destroy whatever voices they don’t control… but it will only cause them to lose their audience.)

A mass exodus away from Fakebook

By censoring independent journalism, Facebook is going to lose tens of millions of users who will simply go somewhere else. The left-wing propaganda swallowers who stay behind at Facebook will simply become increasingly misinformed and mentally ill as they follow the left-wing media down the rabbit hole of delusional Russian hacker conspiracy theories and hatred against America, the Constitution and the entire male population in general.

It won’t be long, probably, before Snopes “officially” confirms that having white skin makes you a racist, or that all men are evil due to their genetics. Politifact might throw down its own delusional “facts” that claim Donald Trump was hypnotized by the Russians as a Manchurian candidate to commit genocide against women (or whatever) whose body parts will be harvested for organ donations to gray aliens from planet Cockamamie.

I can’t wait for Snopes to confirm that people can transform XY chromosomes into XX chromosomes by declaring themselves to be transgender. Before long, everything pushed by the left — from climate change lunacy to transgender psychosis — will be rooted in sheer delusion that stands in complete contradiction to scientific reality.

Yet it will all be pushed by Facebook as “verified fact.” To the utterly insane left, “facts” are whatever they believe in, no matter how disconnected from reality they might be.

We have now entered the Orwellian nightmare we all knew was coming. The good news is that you can simply change the channel and escape the nightmare by avoiding Facebook altogether.

It’s time to #DumpFacebook for good.

Orwellian CA Bill: Reporters Can’t Post Undercover Videos

FactsTruthLies

This one is big. It adds to California’s growing reputation as Police State Central.

First we had SB 277, which forced vaccinations on school children. Now we have Assembly Bill 1671, which would make it a crime for journalists to post and report on certain undercover videos, even though they didn’t make the videos.

That’s right. In California, such videos are already illegal, because they don’t have permission of all parties to be recorded. But if Bill 1671 passes, reporters who are sent those videos, or find them, couldn’t post them and write stories about them. Mainstream, alternative, freelance reporters—it wouldn’t matter.

Even more bizarre, Bill 1671 specifies undercover videos that secretly record “healthcare providers.” These are the videos targeted by the Bill.

Nick Cahill, at the Courthouse News Service, has the story (“Abortion Clinic Sting Videos Sprout Free-Speech Battle”, Thursday, August 11, 2016). Here are key quotes. Buckle up:

“Controversy surrounding secretly recorded videos showing Planned Parenthood employees discussing fetal tissue sales has morphed into a California proposal that would punish media companies for reporting on certain undercover videos. But media groups say the bill, which is on the verge of clearing the Legislature, could have a ‘chilling effect’ on free speech and set the state up for First Amendment court battles.”

“Born from the 2015 hidden-camera footage released by the anti-abortion Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood is pushing Assembly Bill 1671 which it claims will protect abortion clinics and other health care providers from similar malicious sting operations.”

“The bill would criminalize publishing undercover video footage of ‘health care providers’ and subject third parties, including journalists, to penalties for reporting and distributing the illegally recorded footage.” [My comment: It appears criminal penalties could be applied to anyone who posts the videos and comments on them, online. Not just reporters.]

“Under AB 1671, a journalist receiving and posting footage from an anonymous source could be punished by the state as well as be opened up to potential civil lawsuits. Whistleblowers would not be exempt from the proposal either, regardless of how they obtained the illegal footage.”

“The opponents take issue with how the bill specifically criminalizes the distribution of communication with a health care provider. Targeting a specific area of speech amounts to content-based regulation of speech and is unconstitutional, the ACLU claims.”

“’The same rationale for punishing communications of some preferred professions or industries could as easily be applied to other communications [such as] law enforcement, animal testing labs, gun makers, lethal injection drug producers, the petroleum industry and religious sects,’ ACLU legislative director Kevin Baker wrote in an opposition letter…”

If you feel you’ve just entered the Twilight Zone, gone down the rabbit hole, you have.

How about this? Some enterprising citizen-reporter in California secretly records a conversation with a doctor, in which the doctor admits that he vaccinates all children-patients, but would never vaccinate his own kids.

The video link is sent to a journalist in Los Angeles, who then posts it on his website. Suddenly, that LA journalist is hauled into court and the video is taken down.

What about this? Somebody makes a secret recording of a conversation between a well-known oncologist and his colleague about the massive dangers of chemotherapy—including remarks about several of the doctors’ cancer patients who actually died from chemo. A freelance reporter, who obtains the video, posts it on his site. The video is taken down, the reporter is arrested, prosecuted—and sued.

And couldn’t a California-based pharmaceutical company claim status as a “health provider?” Supposed an employee secretly recorded a conversation between two executives, during which they admitted the company buried studies of a new drug because “too many volunteers died” during testing. The employee sends the recording to a reporter at the LA Times. The reporter shows it to his editor. Is that in itself a crime?

Yes.

New APP Exposes HIPAA Violations, Allowing Consumers To View Privacy Breaches By Medical Providers

HIPAA

You and your family’s medical records are being subjected to privacy breaches like never before. There’s a growing demand for your personal medical information. In 2012, statistics showed that pharmaceutical companies were spending 27 billion annually on drug promotion, so you can imagine what they’re spending now. You know they are constantly looking for new ways to market directly to doctors, maybe even bribe them, and influence consumer beliefs about their products.

Your sensitive medical information could provide pharmaceutical companies insight into the best approaches to market to you directly through your online browsing experience, on social media platforms, or through the mail. By collecting medical records en mass, pharmaceutical companies could strategically find ways to market to doctors and influence their prescribing practices.

New app helps enforce HIPAA, protecting patient privacy

This is why medical privacy is so important today. A new consumer protection app has is now available to the public, to inform consumers when their privacy has been breached. The new app, the HIPAA Helper tool, helps consumers search out cases when medical providers violate their privacy. When the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was established, it was intended to protect patient privacy, and this new app helps enforce the law.

According to Deven McGraw, deputy director for health information privacy at the Office for civil Rights, the agency received more than 17,000 privacy complaints in 2014. This number does not include the tens of thousands of self-reported privacy breaches of sensitive medical information that occur each year.

When privacy violations occur, medical providers are sometimes fined by the government and details are posted online. However, thousands of privacy violations get swept under the rug each year. The Office for Civil Rights of the US Department of Health and Human Services fields privacy breach complaints on a daily basis, but these cases are resolved outside public view. Medical providers are often just given a slap on the wrist, instructed to fix the problem and voluntarily make the changes.

With the help of ProPublica and the HIPAA Helper tool, consumers will be able to look into these privacy breaches more closely and see who the repeat offenders are. The app reveals “closure letters” that quietly ask medical organization to fix privacy issues. ProPublica has already unveiled the largest batch of these “closure letters” (300 of them) in the new app, shedding light on the constant privacy breaches taking place with medical providers.

CVS Health and the VA are the two biggest offenders

The two biggest offenders are the US Department of Veterans Affairs and CVS Health. These organizations received the most privacy complaints between 2011 and 2014 and were sent the most “closure letters” to fix the mistakes. Some of these mistakes required “technical assistance” or a full blown corrective action plan to fix the privacy breaches, revealing that there is something systematically wrong with their medical record keeping systems that allows for continued breaches of privacy.

Last fall, CVS commented, “We are never complacent about privacy matters and we constantly strive to address and reduce disclosure incidents by enhancing our training and safeguards. The VA stated that they take veteran privacy and the privacy of medical or health records “very seriously” but their words just aren’t enough when it comes to fixing the systematic errors that lead to violations of medical information privacy.

Other organizations that were warned about privacy breaches are the Kaiser Permanente, Planned Parenthood, and the military’s health care system. These breaches of privacy are not just simple mistakes either. The records show that oftentimes patients complained that the medical organization deliberately shared their health information without their permission. In many cases employees were accused of snooping in patient files. The Office for Civil Rights says that the most numerous privacy complaints fall into the categories: impermissible uses and disclosures, safeguards, administrative safeguards, access and technical safeguards.

This new app is a valuable tool for tracking and holding accountable the medical organizations that are compromising your medical information and personal privacy.
