The TikTok Hoax


by Mark Wauck

We need to consider the implications of the bill that’s being rushed through Congress to ban TikTok—or force its sale to a US buyer. The claim, of course, is that it’s a Chinese spy platform and the US government wants to protect us from spying. No, you didn’t lose your way and end up on The Onion or the Babylon Bee—that’s the claim. Big Brother is really your friend. They want to protect you from any propaganda except their own. And of course, as Davis explains, our Congress critters hope that this will be an easy bit of gaslighting to con the voters in the course of their reinstallment campaigns—China bashing is always popular and is an easy sell. Hey, it was the Chinese who stole our manufacturing base, not our Rulers who gave it away. And, remember the spy balloon!

Expanding on this was The Federalist‘s Sean Davis, who wrote in a lengthy post on X (quoted at Zerohedge):

Here’s what’s actually going on with the TikTok fight right now.

Deep State toadies are taking advantage of anti-China sentiment to transfer TikTok’s surveillance apparatus from China’s evil surveillance state to the U.S. government’s evil surveillance state.

TikTok isn’t going to be banned, because neither the CCP-run Chinese government nor the CCP-owned U.S. government wants to lose such a valuable tool for spying on Americans and poisoning the minds of their children. Instead, the corrupt U.S. intelligence bureaucracy wants control of TikTok, which is why it included the divestment mandate.

Only a handful of U.S. companies are capable of buying and managing TikTok, and they already function as appendages of the Deep State surveillance apparatus.

It’s not that the U.S. government wants to protect you from spying and data theft and manipulation. If only. No, the people behind the Russian collusion hoax, and the Kavanaugh hoax, and the natural origin COVID hoax, and the illegal warrantless spying, and the forced transing of your children—they want to be the ones spying on you and stealing your data and poisoning the minds of your children.

Those who control the Great Reset need to control information flow. That’s what’s behind this move. Now consider this aspect of the bill:

The so-called TikTok ban is a trojan horse. The President will be given the power to ban WEB SITES, not just Apps. The person breaking the new law is deemed to be the U.S. (or offshore) INTERNET HOSTING SERVICE or App Store, not the “foreign adversary.”

The actual language speaks of persons “directed or controlled” by foreign “adversaries”. The POTUS will decide what an “adversary” is as well as who is “directed or controlled.” No doubt persons targetted by the POTUS will be able to appeal such decisions. I’m here to guarantee you this: Only the very rich and very powerful will have a prayer of prevailing on appeal. I will also guarantee you that no court will direct the government to pay legal fees in the unlikely event of a successful appeal.

What else could go wrong with this regime? Well, do you think that special interest groups—groups that contribute either in kind (votes) or in cash—may lobby the POTUS to have certain apps or web sites banned? Maybe this guy is on to something:

Not only are Zionists trying to buy TikTok now, But the dude who brought the bill is majorly supported by AIPAC In the 2022 election cycle AIPAC was the TOP CONTRIBUTOR to Mike Gallagher’s campaign, giving almost DOUBLE the next highest contributor. Do you see the picture yet?

That’s the same Mike Gallagher, by the way, who was one of the only GOPers to stand in the way of impeaching Mayorkas and who was an intel officer in the USMC. As I wrote yesterday:

In the meantime, Israel has ordered its lackeys in our Congress to escalate their war on our constitutional order—and they have dutifully complied:

 Major US Jewish group backs bipartisan bill that could see TikTok banned – The Times of Israel

Jewish Federations of North America says it supports the proposed law due to concerns of antisemitism proliferating on the platform.

One of the most prominent Jewish groups in the country has thrown its support behind a fast-advancing bill that could lead to the massively popular video app TikTok being banned in the United States.

Politicians backing the bill, who include leaders from both parties, have centered their criticism of TikTok on national security concerns related to the app’s Chinese ownership and data collection practices.

Which is pure, cynical gaslighting.

Jewish Federations of North America, representing hundreds of organized Jewish communities, said its support for the bill is rooted in concerns about antisemitism on the platform. The Jewish Federations and the Anti-Defamation League have accused TikTok of allowing antisemitism and anti-Israel sentiment to run rampant.

“The single most important issue to our Jewish communities today is the dramatic rise in antisemitism,” JFNA wrote in an official letter to Congress. “Our community understands that social media is a major driver of the drive in antisemitism and that TikTok is the worst offender by far.”

**But understand that anti-Semitism is equated with any criticism of Israel—not hatred of Jews as such. This is a naked attempt by our rulers to shut down public debate and the flow of information.**

Rep. Massie appeared on Redacted with Clayton Morris to talk about this bill and its threat to our constitutional order—Massie shows up at the 3:00 mark:

This is an outstanding 23 minute exchange—do yourself a favor and watch it all. They cover not only many different aspects of the bill—including some that I point out above—but also Free Speech issues more broadly. By the way, Morris goes THERE during the course of the interview:
