Major technology companies and social media platforms have removed, suppressed or flagged the accounts of more than 800 prominent individuals and organizations, including medical doctors, for COVID-19 “misinformation,” according to a new study from the Media Research Center.
The study focused on acts of censorship on major social media platforms and online services, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Ads, and TikTok.
Instances of censorship included Facebook’s decision to flag the British Medical Journal with a “fact check” and “missing context” label, reducing the visibility of a post, for a study delving into data-integrity issues with a Pfizer vaccine clinical trial.
Facebook also deleted the page of the Great Barrington Declaration, an open letter led by dozens of medical professionals, including Dr. Jay Battacharya, a Stanford epidemiologist, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a former employee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which advocated for less restrictive measures to address the dangers of COVID-19.
“Big Tech set up a system where you can’t disagree with ‘the science’ even though that’s the foundation of the scientific method,” Dan Gainor, MRC vice president of Free Speech America, told the Daily Caller National Foundation. “If doctors and academic journals can’t debate publicly, then it’s not science at all. It’s ‘religion.’”
Big Tech also scrubbed podcast host Joe Rogan’s interviews with scientists Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone, the latter of whom was instrumental in pioneering mRNA technology. Twitter banned Malone from its platform permanently in late December over the virologist’s tweets questioning the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We tallied 32 different doctors who were censored, including mRNA vaccine innovator Dr. Robert Malone,” Gainor said. “Censoring views of credentialed experts doesn’t ensure confidence in vaccines. It undermines faith in government COVID-19 strategies.“
In addition to medical doctors, the study examined instances in which members of Congress were censored by tech platforms.
These included an incident last August in which YouTube suspended Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for posting a video arguing that “cloth masks” are not effective against the coronavirus, a view later echoed by many prominent medical commentators. Twitter also flagged a tweet from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in which he wrote “studies show those with natural immunity from a prior infection are much less likely to contract and spread COVID than those who only have vaccine-induced immunity.”
The study also examined Big Tech censorship of prominent media personalities, such as Rogan, Tucker Carlson, and Dan Bongino.

According to records obtained by the Daily Mail, between 1993 and 1995, Jeffrey Epstein visited President Bill Clinton’s White House 17 times, bringing with him a total of eight women.
The convicted sex offender had connections to many celebrities, journalists and prominent political figures, including Clinton. Many of them were listed in Epstein’s little black book.
In its report on Epstein’s many visits to the Clinton White House, the Daily Mail noted that hanging on the walls of Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, were photos of these visits and a few of the women he had with him.
Low-Res pics from the Florida State Attorney’s Office show pics hanging in Epstein’s mansion of The late-financier visiting Clinton’s White House with two different women.
A report from the Daily Mail indicates Epstein brought 8 women to the White House over the years.
Let’s start back in 1919. Charlie Chaplin, who would become one of the most famous and celebrated movie stars of all time, was 29 when he married 16 year old aspiring actress Mildred Harris. Their marriage only lasted 2 years. In 1924, Chaplin repeated the pattern with another 16 year old, Lita Gray. He met Lita when she was just 6 and began taking her on dates around the age of 12.
1954 — Sam Cooke meets a 12-year old Aretha Franklin and brings her to his hotel room. Before her father interrupted, Aretha said the conversation “took another turn.” Cooke was 23 years old.
Sam Cooke was 18 and Barbara Campbell was only 13 when they met on the South Side of Chicago.
In 1957, 23 year old Jerry Lee Lewis married his cousin, 13 year old Myra Brown. She still believed in Santa.
Also in 1957, 16 year old Anna Mae Bullock met 24 year old Ike Turner. He quickly took her into his band, helped make her a star, and began to treat the newly christened “Tina” as if he owned her. They married 6 years later. Tina once wrote that she was afraid not to accept his proposal.
In 1959, Elvis Presley met his future wife. He was 25 and she was 14. They stayed in touch via phone and letters for the next 2 1/2 years. At that time, Elvis took her on a drug romp to Vegas, followed by moving her into his Graceland mansion. They didn’t marry until 1967. While both parties claimed that Priscilla was a virgin on her wedding night, biographer Susan Finstad makes a strong case that this could not be true. Priscilla herself has admitted that she & Elvis slept in the same bed and that Elvis “taught (her) other ways to please him.” Elvis reportedly had a predeliction for 14 year old girls, both before and after his marriage to Priscilla.
Chuck Berry was arrested and found guilty of transporting an underage girl across state lines for immoral purposes, spending two years in jail in 1960.
In 1969, Sable Starr, queen of the so-called “baby groupies”, had a brief relationship with Iggy Pop. She was 13. He later wrote a song about it. Starr had sexual relationships with many other band members, including encouters with David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Rod Stewart.
It’s 1972 and Rock stars are still having sex with little girls and everyone knows it, but no one does anything about it. Lori Mattix tells of losing her virginity at age 14 to David Bowie. She went on to start “dating” Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page that same year, a relationsihp that began when Page’s manager kidnapped her and brought her to Jimmy’s hotel room. Page kept Lori essentially locked up in his house for most of their 18 months together. The “baby groupie” also reports a sexual relationship with Mick Jagger when she was just 17.
In 1973, married singer Marvin Gaye met and pursued 17 year old Janis Hunter. He wrote “Let’s Get it On” as a tribute to his lust for her. Marvin took his teen date to dinner shortly after they met, where he bribed the waiter to bring her alcohol, then had sex with her later that night. They had a baby by the time she was 18, and married in 1977. The marriage lasted just 3 years.
In 1975, Steven Tyler purchased the guardianship of a 16 year old girl (Julia Holcomb) from her mother when he was 27 so that he could legally take her with him across state lines while he was on tour.
In 1978, Ted Nugent also purchases the guardianship of a teenager from her parents. He was 30, Pele Massa was 17. Years later, Ted reportedly received oral sex from a 12 year old Courtney Love.
March 10, 1977. One of the most well-known cases. Director Roman Polanski drugs and rapes 13 year old Samantha Gailey. Allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge, Polanski nevertheless fled to France before sentencing and remains exiled from the United States. He has not been exiled, however, from Hollywood and continues to make movies and win awards to this day.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ lead Anthony Kiedis readily admits to having sex with a 14 year old girl when he was 23. According to him, once he confirmed her age he “had sex with her again.” In 1986, the 24-year old musician began dating 16 year old Ione Skye.
In 1990, 16 year old Mayte Garcia’s mother sent a video of her belly-dancing to Prince. He arranged to meet her, confirmed she was 16 and a year later moved her into his house. When she was 19, he initiated a sexual relationshi by informing her it was time to go on birth control. They married when she was 22 and he was 37. Before Mayte, Prince met “Anna Fantastic” when she was 15. At 17, she moved into his compound where they had a two year long relationship.
In 1991, 32 year old director Luc Besson met and eventually married model Maïwenn Le Besco when she was 15. Their relationship inspired his movie Léon: The Professional (1994), which followed an emotional relationship between an adult man and a young girl.
In 1993, Jerry Seinfeld picked up a high school student in a public park. He was 39 and she was 17. He and Shoshanna Lonstein dated for four years — through her college years.
Also in 1993, MC Ren of N.W.A. was accused of raping and impregnating a 16 year old girl in the group’s tour bus. The case never went to trial, however a paternity test showed that he was the father of the girl’s baby.
Noted paedophile R Kelly secretly married R&B singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27. They met when she was 12 and he later helped write and produce her first album — “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.”
In 1995, teen star Brandy (age 16) started dating 21-year-old Boyz II Men member Wanya Morris. Keeping their relationship under wraps due to her age proved too stressful for the couple and they broke up soon after.
In 1997, Woody Allen should have become notorious when he married his de facto step-daughter. Though she was 21 at the time of the wedding, the two met when she 8. No matter the spin, the facts are stark. This wasn’t the only time Allen dated a much younger woman. Actress Babi Christina Engelhardt began a years-long love affair with Allen when she was 16 and he was 41. When Allen was 42, he romanced 17-year-old actress and high school senior Stacey Nelkin.
It’s the early-mid 2000s and “That 70s Show” actor, Wilmer Valderrama, continues to date teenage girls in an effort to deny that he is now over 30. He dated 16-year-old Mandy Moore despite being four years her senior. At age 24, Valderrama dated 17-year-old Lindsay Lohan though they kept the relationship a secret until her 18th birthday in 2004. In 2010, the 30-year-old began dating 17-year-old Demi Lovato.
In 2001, Fast & Furious star Paul Walker (28 at the time) was dating 16-year old Aubrianna Atwell. This was not Paul’s last time to date a teenager. His girlfriend at the time of his death, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, was 23 to his 40. They met when she was 16.
Back in 2004, 26 year old Joel Madden and Hilary Duff did the familiar dance of being “just friends” until her 18th birthday in 2006. When asked about whether she was intimate with Madden or not in a 2015 interview with Cosmopolitan, Duff stated, “I had a 26-year-old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing.” In 2005, clean cut TV heartthrob Chad Michael Murray begins dating a girl in high school. They get engaged when she turns 18 and Murray calls her a “little sweetheart” and says they have been together “for awhile.”
Similarly, in 2006, co-stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia began dating. She was 17. He was 12 years her senior.
Actor Doug Hutchison married 16-year-old Courtney Stodden in 2011, when he was 51 years old. The dysfunctional pair became famous as reality stars, with Courtney undergoing extensive plastic surgery to maintain their image.
Rapper Tyga and Kylie Jenner began “hanging out” an awful lot beginning in 2014 when she was 16 and he was 24. They dated on and off after that, though they became a lot more openly “on” after her 18th birthday in 2016.
In late 2018, 44 year old Leonardo DiCaprio publicly reveals that he is dating 21 year old model Camilla Morrone. It’s not the age gap that puts Leo on our list, it’s the fact that he’s known Camilla since she was 11.
2018 — 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown innocently revealed that rapper, Drake, age 31, has been close friends with her, for the last year giving her advice about boys. He texts her, “I miss you.” This is the same Drake who has, more than once, skated around that “just friends until she turns 18” line — most recently with 18 year old model Bella Harris.
1992 – Fashion was a major part of Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons’ story from the start. The pair met at a New York Fashion Week show in 1992, when Kimora Lee was 17 years old.
At the time, the young model was making waves on the catwalks and was particularly favored by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. She was also still finishing her education in high school.
Simmons was 35 years old when he started a relationship with the teenager. He was known as a “ladies man”
A number of women, some of whom were aged 17 at the time of the alleged incidents, have accused Simmons of sexual harassment, assault or rape.
Guys, this isn’t a friendship. This is GROOMING. No one will stop it. They’ll “date.” He’ll have sex with her, probably in a couple of years. No one will care because he’s a man and a star.
NO ONE WILL CARE UNLESS WE START MAKING PEOPLE CARE.
Make them care. No free passes. No 2nd chances. A ruined career is the least they deserve. It’s not cute. THIS IS NOT OK.

My personal views:
Why have hardly any of these predators been prosecuted? and just as disturbing is why family and friends and employees of both parties involved seemingly turned a blind eye!
The true list will no doubt be double this length, also adding sexual assaults by Hollywood stars, music artists and others in the limelight that over the years were brushed under the carpet.
The culture of power, money and fame isn’t a defence, neither should the perpetrators be allowed to get away with it.
Too much victim blaming goes on in the world of stardom and Hollywood, even for the youngest of victims who are labelled gold diggers or fame hungry by many…. What’s forgotten is that THESE ARE CHILDREN!!

Essential Account Safety for Parents and Kids
Before you begin looking at the all of the information available here, it’s important for you to protect your own device and online accounts. One of the most important settings you will ever need to activate for any online account, is the Two-Factor Authentication option. Please ensure that you take the time to understand the importance of this security feature. To help you, we have prepared this handy guide to explain it for you.
With the birth of Social Media and the Internet being available in every household, the ability to monitoring your children has become more difficult.
Nowadays, everyone has access to a mobile phone, no matter the age. I wonder how many parents actually know how to use the Child Safety features and Parental Controls on the devices. How many actually bother to check their kids devices or even have a talk with them about safety and grooming ?!
The world out there is more dangerous than you can even imagine. Children go missing EVERY DAY, children are abused EVERY DAY, children are murdered EVERY DAY.
Did You Know That Pedophiles Actually Have A Manual On How To Groom Children?
There are various “grooming guides” floating around online and amongst predators. Officials say most are amateur, but a handful are frighteningly slick.
Please educate yourselves, it could be what saves your child or someone elses child.
The 170-page guide teaches pedophiles how to target your children
RESEARCH AND LEARN HOW TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD don’t hide from what’s unsavory to hear, because is too much to listen to, or too painful to see. Think of all those poor kids abducted every single day, being torture and simply having to comply or die. They do not get a choice, they do not get to say wait, stop, slow down, be more gentle, because if they speak up, it will be much worse !
Please, protect ALL CHILDREN by learning what happens and how to prevent it from happening, educate the kids on how to stay safe and what to look out for. It’s important to have this talk with them, because the world we live in, is far from what you think it is.
Education leads to awareness, awareness in turn disrupts the demand as the perpetrators can no longer follow the pattern and in turn will start to make mistakes and reveal themselves.
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Ever heard of a “grooming guide”? We hadn’t either. Federal agents want that to change. They want all parents to know these vile guides are out there, teaching predators how to get to your kids.
There are various “grooming guides” floating around online and amongst predators. Officials say most are amateur, but a handful are frighteningly slick. WBTV obtained one of the more in-depth ones. A 170-page manual full of simplified lessons written by a convicted pedophile. As the big warning page on the front will tell you, this particular guide is a step-by-step “how-to” in which one predator, who goes by the name “The Mule”, lists the best ways to start long-term sexual relationships with a 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 year old.
“It’s a sickness and a depravity level I can’t even comprehend,” says Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Special Agent in Charge Brock Nicholson. His office is well aware of these guides and tracks these criminals. “We call them predators but at the end of the day, they are child rapists. Flat out. That’s what they’re doing. It’s sickening . [In the guide] they try to convince others with the same mindset that what they’re thinking is NOT wrong, that it is society who is wrong. The guide says this is the ultimate expression of how to love a child.”
Where do you find a guide like this? Sadly, it’s not hard.
“This guide literally sold on Amazon for awhile,” said Nicholson. “These guides and similar guides are posted on websites.”
This particular guide goes into great detail on the difference in how to have sex with a toddler versus a kindergartner. It lays out specific word-for-word dialogues you can have with children to make them think the experiences are all okay. But the most stunning section might be where the guide teaches predators to get in with parents first, in order to get to their kids.
“It’s not the ‘stranger-danger’ you might be thinking of,” said Nicholson, who has worked a number of these cases in his 25+ year career with I.C.E. “It’s teachers, coaches, ministers, politicians, even law enforcement. It’s every walk of life, every race. It’s usually men acting as the predators, though not always.”
For example, the guide says, “If you have kids in your family, but you do not yet have a close relationship, it might be a good idea to carefully start to visit those people and start to show a friendly interest in that particular family. But do start carefully and try not to make it too obvious, like going straight for their kids and play – build up trust and friendship with the parents over a period of time, and see where this takes you.”
Babysitting, the guide says, will sometimes provide the opportunity for “sleepovers”. If that doesn’t work, the guide tells predators to “establish a playgroup”, “establish a sports group”, “run a summer or winter camp” or “run an orphan home”.
In another section of the guide, the author, who again is a convicted pedophile, lists the four important advantages that provide some “fundamental assets for every adult who are searching for child and child love: 1) The advantage of owning an animal, 2) The advantage of searching in poor communities, 3) The advantage of finding sad and lonely children and 4) The advantage of using schools as starting points.”
“Getting yourself an animal should be the very first thing to consider if you are serious about finding a child love candidate,” the guide states. “Either if you plan to have the children come to your home or searching outdoors. Animals are what we like to callchild magnets.”
Nicholson said about six months ago he found out child predators sometimes identify themselves by a particular piece of jewelry or tattoo.
“When I discovered this,” he said, “it totally blew me away! Much like we see in gang members, they have their own signs of who they are. With boys, if they like boys, they have a triangle within a triangle. If they like young girls, they have a heart within a heart. Either tattooed or worn as a necklace or a bracelet. Then, when they’re encountered, they’ll tell law enforcement, ‘Oh, this belonged to my daughter who died years ago and I wear it for that reason…’.”
To get another opinion on the “grooming guide”, we sent it to Dr. Sharon Cooper, an expert in diagnosing child sexual abuse. She’s a Forensic Pediatrician and Consultant for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children who is based in Chapel Hill, but is widely regarded across the nation for her books, lectures and work on individual cases.
“It’s highly detailed and extremely disturbing,” said Cooper. “What this pedophile suggests in the guide would work. This kind of rewarding of a child on a reoccurring basis, in telling them how important they are, that would make a child respond – especially young children.”
To see the entire special report which first aired in our 11:00 pm newscast on May 3rd, 2012.
WASHINGTON, DC– Today, American First Legal (AFL) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking documents from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) related to the influx of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAE) being released into the country. The FOIA seeks information regarding any communication between the two agencies in relation to the sponsors to whom HHS releases children, the extent to which HHS follows up with the sponsors to see if the UAC are still with their sponsor, and the extent to which the UAC appears for immigration hearings.
According toBloomberg Law, the Biden Administration has released children from government custody to labor traffickers who sent them to work in agricultural processing facilities in numerous cities. This disastrous maneuver comes as the humanitarian crisis along the southwest border continues to worsen and as the Biden Administration seeks to blame everyone except themselves.
CBP’sdata showsthat prior to the recent surge of Haitians arriving in Del Rio, encounters of illegal aliens have remained at an all-time high. This is yet another data point that shows the Administration’s misguided pandering to open-border left-wing radicals is creating a crisis that is overwhelming our immigration system. The Administration’s policies are incentivizing human trafficking and smuggling at a staggering level, resulting in children being abandoned along the border to be found, hopefully in time, by U.S. Border Patrol.
Even more tragically, this is a problem that we have known about for years. In2014 we learnedthat the Obama Administration released children to human traffickers who took them off to serve as child labor. Under the Biden Administration’s leadership, these same, horrific, and entirely predictable and preventable problems have returned. YetHHS continuesto avoid any responsibility for the fate of the children they turn over to cartel traffickers.
Statement From former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker:
“Yet again, the Biden Administration is showing a blatant lack of respect for American sovereignty and the rule of law. The number of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding into our country shatters all precedent. Make no mistake: this administration knows full well the dangers that can befall these migrant children at the hands of human traffickers — assault, slave labor, sex trafficking, etc. We have seen — outlined in the press — reports of migrant children turned over to labor traffickers who forced them into modern day slavery. Yet, that has not deterred the Biden Administration from releasing unaccompanied alien children from HHS custody to individuals who have completed insufficient background checks, who oftentimes lack lawful status, and who will not ensure that the children appear in immigration court. In effect, the Biden Administration is facilitating — not combatting — the criminal smuggling of alien minors. For the Biden Administration, all that matters is that they get them out of their custody as quickly as possible. America First Legal is demanding — and will get — answers,” Matthew Whitaker said.
