Happy Wednesday.

A hot trend in Japan has gone viral on social media. Japanese slapping restaurants will charge you 400 yen to have a waitress slap you in the face. The same thing will happen for free in America if you fail to leave a tip.

Lead: U.S. Government Censoring Americans

credit: giphy

A whistleblower confessed to journalist Michael Shellenberger that the government is indeed censoring Americans under the guise of “anti-disinformation” and that they know it’s illegal. Shellenberger is calling this the CTIL Files which stands for Cyber Threat Intelligence League. He claims that these revelations are even worse than the Facebook and Twitter Files, which were bad enough. 

The whistleblower shows that the censorship was done by multiple government agencies but managed by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and included "partnerships with civil society organizations and commercial media, and the use of sock puppet accounts and other offensive techniques.” 

Government officials used work-around tactics through "over 100 government agencies and nongovernmental organizations” because they knew that the government didn’t have the “legal authority” to do what it had planned to do. They used these channels to censor American citizens and elected officials with “a heavy focus on stopping disfavored narratives, not just wrong facts.” 

What are disfavored narratives? Anti-lockdown narratives are one example. 

The groups used tactics such as discrediting individuals and even tried calling for “banks to cut off financial services to individuals who organize rallies or events.” 

We’ve said it before and we will say it again: misinformation campaigns are terrifying and inappropriate government control mechanisms. A Congressional hearing about the Censorship Industrial Complex will take place on Thursday of this week. 

The U.N. Wants You To Stop Eating Meat

The United Nations is set to release a plan to call on the West to “dramatically reduce its meat consumption.” They are doing this under the guise of climate emissions, even though most data shows that meat consumption is not linked to higher climate emissions when compared to other diets. 

The UN is expected to release this plan this week at the COP28 climate conference in Dubai. UN officials have long blamed climate on meat producers. Christiana Figueres, a global climate campaigner and former leader of the United Nation’s climate change body, once said that restaurants should treat carnivores in the same way as smokers and ask them to eat outside. 

U.S. farmers only produce about 1.4% of global emissions and some studies show that meatless diets have a higher emission count due to the industry-heavy production of seed oils and processed meatless products. So why is the UN doing this? 

Why indeed? That is a relevant question about a lot of what the U.N. does.

Trading Hostages

Israel and Hamas continue to release hostages during the ceasefire, which Israel says will not extend beyond this upcoming weekend. 

Hamas released 12 hostages that include 10 Israelis and 2 Thai citizens. That brings the total to 81 released hostages from Hamas. All of them were kidnapped on October 7 during the attack on Tel Aviv. 

Israel released 30 Palestinian hostages. That brings the total to 147 released hostages from Israel. Israel regularly uses "administrative detention” tactics to hold hostages without charge or trial for up to six months or longer. Many of those released thus far were women and teenage boys.

The U.S. and other Israeli allies have begun calling for a “two-state solution” to end this conflict. That means that Palestinians get a country, which they currently do not have. This has long-since been the one thing that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said will not happen on his watch. But how much longer will "his watch" last? Calls for his resignation have grown louder inside and outside of Israel. 

What's Trending?

2024 Toyota Tacoma is trending because the vehicle came out this week and car reviewers are pretty excited about it.

Apple Music Replay is trending because that came out this week. It is Apple Music subscribers’ summary of their most-played songs, albums and artists of 2023. 

This video is trending of a Nardo Wick fan getting beat up by the rapper’s body guard after he asked for a picture. Warning, the video is violent. Wick posted this feckless and ungrammatical apology on Instagram but he'll probably still get sued.

News By The Numbers

9.9%. That is the number of Republicans who favor Nikki Haley for president. The press has been saying that there has been a Nikki Haley surge but she still trails former President Donald Trump by a lot. Trump is averaging 61% of Republicans, which is up by from 58% in October. 

138-94. That was the score of the basketball game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday, with the win going to the 76ers. That was the biggest loss of Lebron James’ career.

25. That is how old Cher’s song “Believe” turns this year and the singer told the Today Show that it pisses her off because she hates aging. 

U.N. Thinks There Are More Than Two Genders

The United Nations may downrank the United Kingdom from the Human Rights Council because the U.K. government wants to define gender as biological sex. 

This stems from an investigation of the U.K.’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission. The government agency’s leader, Baroness Falkner, was investigated earlier this year for a report that suggests the government define gender as biological sex. The report makes this suggestion in order to protect the rights of women but she was accused of being transphobic for this and another unsubstantiated remark. 

The discredited trans lobbying group Stonewall, itself under investigation, continues to go after the EHRC and has now asked the U.N. to strip the group of its “A status," which would mean that Britain would not have a place at the table of the UN Human Rights Council and other UN bodies. It would also mean that “countries like Iraq, Qatar, Colombia, The Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zimbabwe would have more standing on globalist body’s Human Rights Council.”
