Can’t offend liberals with the truth. They want to shut down dissent.
From The Blaze:
Facebook on Wednesday apologized for threatening to shut down the “Chicks on the Right” Facebook page because of a post critical of the Obama administration, Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports. The site claims the users were “incorrectly warned” by the site’s User Operation’s Team.
Mockarena, one of the two women who runs “Chicks on the Right,” a conservative website with more than 100,000 fans on their official Facebook page, reportedly received a notice on Wednesday informing her that she would be locked out of not only her “Chicks on the Right” Facebook page, but her personal page as well. Facebook accused her of violating the company’s standards with one of her posts.
The post in question was directed at White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. The post referred users to a website posting titled, “You Know What? Liberal Hypocrisy is Starting to Cause Me Actual Physical Pain.”
“Jay Carney can kiss my assular area,” Mockarena wrote.
However, shortly after Fox News reported on the incident, Facebook issued an apologetic statement.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience…Unfortunately, the users were incorrectly warned by our User Operation’s Team and we have already removed all associated blocks from the accounts,” Facebook spokesman Fred Wolens told Fox News.

Facebook, like most other social media outlets is in bed with the Obama regime and are helping them to spy on Americans, so censoring a group to protect the Dear Leader is nothing new.
Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.
The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.
I spoke with Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc — the media company that handles SOS postings and media production. Ward was the one who personally put the Navy SEAL meme up, and the one who received the warning from Facebook and an eventual 24 hour suspension from Facebook because Ward put the meme back up after Facebook told him to take it down.
Here’s what Ward told me:
We created and posted this meme on Saturday after news broke that Obama had known and denied SEALS the backup they requested.
Once the meme was up it garnered 30,000 shares, approx. 24,000 likes, and was read by hundreds of thousands of people — all within 24 hrs. On Sunday, I went into the SOS Facebook page to post something else and found a warning from Facebook that we had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with our meme. So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as as caption, and re-posted the meme to the Facebook page.
Along with the re-posted meme, Ward put a link to the Facebook “feedback comment” inbox so visitors to the SOS page could send a message to Facebook if they were as outraged over the meme being jerked down as he was.

Just plain creepy and desperate.
The Obama campaign has ramped up its email microtargeting efforts, sending messages asking supporters on its email list to contact specific individuals in states with early voting to remind them to vote.
The algorithm for identifying potential Obama voters in swing states is far from perfect.
In an email shared with POLITICO, for example, the Obama campaign asked Soren Dayton, a former John McCain campaign staffer (who had signed up to the campaign’s email list and authorized it to access his Facebook account), to contact a self-described conservative-libertarian blogger based in Nevada.
But it’s the logical culmination of campaign email programs and social networking. The New York Times reported last week that campaigns have been testing whether personal contact from an acquaintance is more effective than from a unknown campaign volunteer.
The tool works in conjunction with Facebook — and suggestions of what voter to contact are only generated only after supporters give the campaign permission to access a list of their Facebook friends.

Team Obama knew and boldly lied to the American public. They knew it was a terrorist attack and it wasn’t linked to the Anti-Muhammad YouTube video. They knew of other terrorist attacks. They knew the US embassy, and staff, did not have adequate security. They knew what they told us was all lies.
From Daily Beast:
In the five months leading up to this year’s 9/11 anniversary, there were two bombings on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and increasing threats to and attacks on the Libyan nationals hired to provide security at the U.S. missions in Tripoli and Benghazi.
Details on these alleged incidents stem in part from the testimony of a handful of whistleblowers who approached the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the days and weeks following the attack on the Benghazi consulate. The incidents are disclosed in a letter to be sent Tuesday to Hillary Clinton from Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the oversight committee’s subcommittee that deals with national security.
The State Dartment did not offer comment on the record last night.
The new information disclosed in the letter obtained by The Daily Beast strongly suggests the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the late Ambassador Chris Stevens were known by U.S. security personnel to be targets for terrorists. Indeed, the terrorists made their threats openly on Facebook.
For example, following a May 22 early-morning attack on a facility that housed the International Committee on the Red Cross, a Facebook page claimed responsibility, and said the attack was a warning and a “message for the Americans disturbing the skies over Derna.” That reference was likely to American surveillance drones over a city that provided fighters to al Qaeda in Iraq in the last decade.
In June a Facebook page associated with militants linked to the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi posted a threat to Stevens based on the route he took for his morning jog. The Facebook page also posted a picture of Stevens. The letter to Clinton notes that “after stopping these morning runs for about a week, the Ambassador resumed them.”

This should scare Democrats even more. People are starting to think about the economy, deficits, national debt and the lies from Obama.
Washington (CNN) — A seven-term Wisconsin congressman, who 54% of the American people were not aware of last week, just knocked the president of the United States off of his perch as the most talked-about politician on the largest social media platform in the world.
According to the exclusive Facebook-CNN Election Talk Meter, Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, in the first 54 hours after being announced as Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential running mate, sucked up the political oxygen in the social media landscape — with the Beltway topping the buzz and his home state of Wisconsin close behind.
What caught our eye? The swing states of Virginia (where Ryan was announced) and New Hampshire were also high on the list:
Facebook-CNN talk meter scores
1. Rep. Paul Ryan 5.21
2. President Barack Obama 4.84
3. Vice President Joe Biden 4.01
4. Gov. Mitt Romney 3.74
For perspective, when Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian in history on July 31, he registered a 6.51 on the same 1-10 scale.
Top 10 states + D.C. buzzing about Ryan
1. Washington, D.C.
4. New Hampshire
10. North Carolina
Note: The talk meter calculates a jump in buzz, so Ryan’s relative anonymity helped him jump up the talk meter scale. Yet the growth wasn’t just in buzz, but also in “likes” — the Facebook term for social approval which enables people to follow your moves closely and voice their support to their social networks.
Ryan’s new fan page has grown from zero to more than half a million fans, already topping that of the sitting vice president, Joe Biden.

What could possible go wrong here?
If you live in Washington state a new way to register to vote will soon by available. A Facebook app will reside on the Secretary of state’s page that will exist directly within Facebook. The APreports that the app will be the results of collective efforts of Facebook, Microsoft and the state.
Washington will be the first state to offer voter registrations on Facebook. Users will have to click on the app and allow Facebook to access their information and will be required to also provide an ID card or drivers licence. The app will not have access to the state records, rather will overlay to simply add to the database. A “My Vote” site will also existe to help inform registrants about candidates and the issues.
I’m sure AG Eric Holder will sue Washington State & Facebook since ID is required. After all, he’s sued South Carolina and Texas over voter ID laws on the grounds it disenfranchises minorities.

Just another story about a George Soros backed group influencing the Obama White House.
From the DC:
The lobby group Free Press, a self-styled “public interest” organization, has worked hard over the years to forge alliances with corporate players and federal bureaucrats directly involved in the political intrigues of DC technology and media policy.
Documents made public through past Freedom of Information Act requests and those obtained by The Daily Caller through an undisclosed source reveal a well-funded, ideologically motivated organization with close ties to Google, the White House, and several federal agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and the State Department.
The regulatory policies Free Press advocates, including net neutrality, benefit the organization’s corporate allies, in addition to the investment portfolios of philanthropists including the group’s most well-known financier, George Soros.
The net neutrality debate was largely one about how to best solve the dilemma of meeting continually increasing consumer demand for the data-intensive services of corporations like Google and Facebook. That growing demand for online bandwidth developed in parallel with the communications technology industry’s own problem: the ever-decreasing supply of available electromagnetic spectrum to license to Internet providers like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Sprint.
The ideological rhetoric of political players on both sides of the debate, however, seemed to force consumers and bureaucrats to choose between free speech and free markets.
John Fund, the senior editor of the conservative American Spectator, explained in a 2010 Wall Street Journal column that the concept of net neutrality was birthed as part of a well-funded and intentional effort by a network of liberal foundations, and that Free Press co-founder Robert McChesney’s “ultimate goal” — as stated in a 2009 interview on the Canadian socialist website SocialistProject – was to “get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”
The policy coordination between McChesney’s group and Google can physically be traced back as early as March 2009. Free Press co-founder and former president Josh Silver had sent out a memo, obtained by TheDC, an invitation to the home of Google General Counsel David Drummond — which advertised a reception where attendees would discuss all things related to the Internet policy of the new Obama Administration:
