I only started listening to Alex Jones after he got banned. Time to start following zero hedge too.

You know you're over the target when you start catching flak.

I like Zero Hedge - they are a quirky site, though....a mix of the type of stories we typically share on here, along with a lot of news on economics, the stock market, cryptocurrencies, and Prepper doom porn (haha). The comments section, which got them in trouble with Google, have been like the wild west - anything goes.

There comments section is a mess to be honest. But there are some great articles from a variety of perspectives

It's gone downhill -- I don't know if the original owners sold out or what, but it's a lot different than it was even a year ago. But if you love fearporn, it's your huckleberry!

One HUGE plus about the comments section is, if you block a commenter, you don't see any of their comments, at all (vs here, where they just can respond but you still run across them constantly). Great for weeding out the chink shills and flat-earther retards.

Agreed. Been a ZHer for more than ten years, and it used to be that they had a no-racism, no-antisemitism rule for the comments. That went out the window at some point, and it sure does seem like the ShariaBlue types have been flooding the place with white-supremacist tropes in an effort to get the place shut down -- like we saw happening back at t_d.

Have these people not read huffpo, slate, honestly ANYTHING OF LEFTIST LEAN, TWATTER FFS!?!?! according to them I have lived in deep dens of alt right conspiracy hate and ists and bigots and blahblahblah throughout Obama's years. And though we looooathed the black man and only for being black...NEVER did I read such filthy hatred violent awful comments. Just like that other place that said you people wanted to harm police officers...lolz...

They're a good site. They've also been inundated with shills in the comment section lately, to set up the Google & Paypal BS.

Room641A 13 points ago

I've seen some of the comments there are off the rails. Hadn't occurred to me until now it could be some form of troll brigade to make the site look bad.

2
TheScuderia 2 points ago

I don't think there is a better site than Zero Hedge when it comes to covering geopolitical matters.

They also cover financial markets and economics from an Austrian School of thought perceptive. So it's a popular site among red-pilled traders and investors.

2
HuggableBear 2 points ago

I don't even read the site very often, maybe twice a month when someone links something from there that looks interesting.

However, any website that the left hates this much is worth keeping around.

I donated $50 just now.

Trump really cant do anything about a privately owned site banning people off its services.

its services that benefit from practical immunity to law breaking and profiting off of the unlegislated data rights of american citizens...ok...

Google isn't privately owned though. Tax payers have significant investment in incubating it. Break it up.

ZeroHedge is a great site, although I'll be the first to admit that their comment section is a cesspool. But, that's free speech, like it or not.

"comment section is a cesspool" Perfect description of Twitter

I’ve never seen their comments section, but it bothers me how Google is able to strongarm any site it wants to because of the comments of readers.

Tweeting threats will be the extent of it sadly.

1
HuggableBear 1 point ago

They can't pass anything until we take back the house.

Once that happens, then they won't do anything. Until that point, though, they will virtue signal super duper hard and introduce lots of legislation that does everything we could dream of that will never pass.

Remember - Google accidentally told us of their election interference plans 1 year ago :

“We want to avoid the next Trump situation”

They are a monopoly who decide what you are allowed to read and vote for

IvIA6A 3 points ago

Every tech company is doing this. They're run by people that are overwhelmingly leftist, so even if they don't admit it at Twitter, reddit, Google, etc, it's biased in that direction.

1

Yep, systemic political bias.

they think Killdozer 2.0 cant drive through the server farms they got in the south.

my sides.

anyone else know how much force it takes to cut fiber optic lines?

i do

keep pushing me, google.

fuck around and find out

Ballind 0 points ago (edited)

Remember, when optic breaks, they have to replace the whole fucking stretch

Edit: guess I was misinformed

2
Endaar 2 points ago

This isn't true.

1
HuggableBear 1 point ago

You can splice fiber, it just requires different tools and a larger section of replacement cable. It's more expensive, but not dramatically so.

1
Kekistan_United 1 point ago

no, i had the same sentiment.

but i guess there are repair junctions now?

either way.

PayPal? More like GayPal.

Absolutely everyone hates paypal who needs it for business.

Their fees are astronomical.

8
EPic 8 points ago

and the many many many cases of them locking funds for no reason

3
silent_majority_2020 3 points ago

The reason is because you are a conservative. They lock funds for no valid reason.

1
womp-womp-twice 1 point ago

they probably have an AI that randomly delays transactions and blocks accounts of conservative business owners

2
1776forever1776 2 points ago

This is possible. I use PayPal with one of my small businesses.

They do it out of the guise of ‘security’. if you allow swiped or keyed POS transactions, they hold the funds in the event of ‘customers wanting a refund’.

Being in the risk space this is understandable, PayPal prefers EMV (chip) read transactions over more vulnerable entry modes. As soon as the EMV (chip) reader was sent I have not seen any holding times outside of a business day.

Peter Thiel invented a great thing. Then he sold it, communists took it over, and ran it into the ground.

'Free speech' is no longer respected, just like the rest of your rights. Gave up too much ground for too long, now we are being chased into our homes

Jesus fuck. I've got a business plan I've been working on to act as a payment processor using CryptoCurrency - still researching and putting together cost schedules to see what kind of investment and employees I'd need to bring in to make it happen.

Shit like this makes me think there's a bigger market than the artist community for paying each other without the retarded fees I originally was planning for it to be.

Financiers and payment processors should adhere to legal requirements, not mob mentality. If you're not violating the law with your transaction, it's not anyone's business.

Sorry to be so far behind the times but all this says to me is, wow I should really be reading zerohedge. If they're that terrified of it, must be great stuff!!

1
TheScuderia 1 point ago (edited)

I've been reading ZH for 8 years. Easily my favorite news site. They do a great job covering geo-politics, finance, and economics.

But they do engage in doom/fear porn on a regular basis lol.

How is there no PayPal competitor seems like a license to print money.

2
flashersenpai 2 points ago

they're largely still leftists like Stripe so it's not really different enough to be big competition

Square is newer, has less fraud behaviors than PayPal in my experience. But im sure pedes could show examples of Square Canceling folks just like PayPal.

There are a few alternatives, PayPal is just the Google of that market

Just another step in the incremental ratcheting up of the Cultural Revolution.

This began YEARS ago and the simultaneous defunding/de-platforming by Google/PayPal et al of Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Farrakhan, and MiLo, and many others was just the test run.

Now that things are heading into the election, they are going for broke and looking for a pretext to have all avenues of free thought/discussion removed to try and prevent us from organizing and sharing pro-liberty ideas. This was ALL predicted to the letter over 2 years ago.

The events happening now are NOT accidents. Covid, BLM riots, etc. and more to come are all part of a specific effort to shut down free speech heading into the election in order to prevent the public from informing each other virally.

2
Necrovoter 2 points ago

Paypal, Google and the rest should be permanently shut down. Their stock should be frozen, and all their accounts and assets seized under RICO laws. The managers, execs and such belong in prison. The only way to regain our freedom is to make the price of violating it so high that no one will ever consider it again.

Its hard to indict somebody when they are paying for your kids' college party time at Yale and your massive stock kickbacks for your retirement.

I actually liked the Zero Hedge articles that were posted on thedonald.win. I think they have the smartest opinions and well researched facts, Was tempted to look into the comments sections while turning my bullshit detector very high up.

SevenYearsInTheHole 3 points ago

I recently posted here on how to use PiHole to block Google's servers. Zerohedge should just build another funding model and forget about Google. I don't see why they would need them.

2
Bushydoofus 2 points ago

I just don’t understand how a site like Zerohedge or Foxnews.com can have their monetization removed because of the comments made by their readers. I noticed that foxnews.com disallows comments on controversial articles.

1
Ghostphaez [S] 1 point ago

Because the Tech Lords like Google have been given tyrannical powers over the web and no one has done anything to stop them.

No biggie. Paypal will be out of business within a year after Ebay dumps them

1

Ebay said that or you're guessing?

The Federalist is a much better news source and I expect that they went for Zero Hedge to not make to to obvious that their real Target was the Federslist.

Let. Gen Flynn’s lawyers cite the Federalist almost on a daily Basis. They are that good.

Zero hedge I find is merely rehashing news from the Chans

I used to use PayPal constantly, but their activism persuaded me I could live without them. It's inconvenient, but I can live with that.
