2022-12-01: Obamanet is likely the worst First Amendment violation of the last 150 years. From Obamanet-2010 : “Purchasing a higher quality of termination service for one’s own Internet traffic, though, is not speech…” (p. 59221). This is a Marxist gobbledygook. Purchasing Internet bandwidth (“termination service” in the FCC words) is like purchasing paper and printing press services at the time of the Bill of Rights. The freedom of the press is in the First Amendment. (A longer quote: “AT&T and NCTA argue that open Internet rules interfere with the speech rights of content and application providers to the extent they are prevented from paying broadband providers for higher quality service. Purchasing a higher quality of termination service for one’s own Internet traffic, though, is not speech …” – added on 2024-01-14)
2022-11-04: Added sources: Reuters and Statista, 2014. Minor corrections.
2020-03-01: wireless data costs ($90B) are added to fixed broadband costs ($50B), yielding $140B, redistributed by Obamanet in favor of Big Tech annually, starting in 2015 and likely growing. Continue reading How Obamanet Created “Masters of the Universe”
The enlightened Silicon Valley has apparently created a totalitarian dystopia. Here, the term Silicon Valley includes Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and Apple (“GFTMA”), even as Microsoft is headquartered in Washington state.
GFTMA have developed tools for nearly total speech control and deployed them against conservatives and other opponents of the Left. They tied themselves to the Left under the Obama administration. The political censorship and discrimination against the “right of left” authors and readers is well documented. This article focuses on the scientific and technical human potential of this country, a large part of which is computer and network engineers, scientists, businessmen, and other specialists affected by Silicon Valley.

The Oregon Petition against climate alarmism has been signed by 31,000+ scientists and experts in the natural sciences, including more than 9,000 PhD holders, and all signatures have been verified (possibly with a couple of errors). Spicy allegations about petition distribution, signing, and the verification procedures spread by the enviros, leftists, Google, and the former mainstream media, are false. The following email from Dr. Art Robinson is published here with his permission.
Almost all of the signatures were collected in a period of two months in 1998 and again in 2007. All communication was by First Class mail to the potential signers. They signed the petition card, wrote in their credentials, and returned the card by first class mail – their stamp.

June 2, 2017 (four months from today) will be the 25 year anniversary of the Heidelberg Appeal. This historical document signed by more than 4,000 distinguished scientists, including 70 Nobel Laureates, was released in the beginning of the infamous “Earth Summit” (Rio de Janeiro, 1992) to oppose environmental obscurantism, including climate alarmism. Among other things, the Heidelberg Appeal said:
We want to make our full contribution to the preservation of our common heritage, the Earth.
We are, however, worried at the dawn of the twenty-first century, at the emergence of an irrational ideology which is opposed to scientific and industrial progress and impedes economic and social development.
We contend that a Natural State, sometimes idealized by movements with a tendency to look toward the past, does not exist and has probably never existed …
We intend to assert science’s responsibility and duties toward society as a whole.
We do, however, forewarn the authorities in charge of our planet’s destiny against decisions which are supported by pseudoscientific arguments of false and nonrelevant date.
The greatest evils which stalk our Earth are ignorance and oppression, and not Science, Technology, and Industry …
These wise words by the most distinguished scientists in the world Continue reading Heidelberg Appeal’s Anniversary – 4,000+ scientists, 70 Nobel Laureates

Update on December 21, 2023. Another document, outlining leftist strategies to overthrow President Trump in 2020 even if he wins the election in landslide: TheCount. Written by Democrat-Socialist operatives, it says:
“If it is not possible for the rightfully elected president to be sworn in on January 20, and faced with an alternative of allowing Trump to win an illegitimate victory, Democrats should ensure that the Electoral College count cannot be completed by January 20 so that Nancy Pelosi becomes president.“
“We can’t treat a Congressional fight over which Electoral College votes to count like a legitimate legal process – it’s a coup and we must act accordingly“
This might explain why the Pelosi police opened the Capitol gates and shut down the Joint Session of Congress under the pretext of the breach. I can rest my case here, but then the rest of the article would be wasted, so let’s continue. Continue reading NOT Trump but Democrats were interested in violent disruption of J6 joint session
A few days ago, New York Attorney General Letitia James awkwardly admitted: “before this trial [of Trump] even began, the judge ruled in our favor.” This is not surprising, given that she ran for office on the promise to get Trump. She also helped to make New York the epicenter of COVID-19 in the US and played an important role in Internet censorship and sabotage, as exposed in Missouri v. Biden.
The Speech Restriction
Letitia James has been the New York Attorney General since January 2019. On March 19-20, 2020, her office sent letters to the largest domain registrars. Domain names (like ‘americanthinker.com’) are an essential component of the internet infrastructure and are necessary to create websites. Anybody can purchase any unowned domain name and use it for as long as they pay annual fees. Continue reading How NY AG Letitia James contributed to pandemic and censorship
GFTM Act Collusively under control the European Commission
In 2016-2018, Google, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft (“GFTM” / Internet Gatekeepers) signed at least two agreements with the European Commission, committing to censor speech in the US, in a manner prescribed by European Commission, EU governments, and other EU political powers.
2016: the “Hate Speech” Obligations
On May 31, 2016, Google (in respect to YouTube), Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft (“GFTM”) made a commitment to the European Commission, agreeing to censor “illegal hate speech”. Contrary to its title, the document isn’t limited to “hate speech,” or any defined speech, but it is a requirement to accommodate the demands of the European Commission, EU governments, and other political forces. Many of those political forces are wildly anti-American. Further, the document’s reach isn’t limited to the EU, but applies worldwide, based on the theory that the internet is global and needs a global regulation. GFTM consider themselves global corporations, and censor content and content providers in the US, de-facto accepting jurisdiction of Brussels and Berlin in the US. For example, while Hezbollah is designated terrorist organization in the US, it is a recognized party in many EU countries & governments. Therefore this terrorist organization now has a say on who and what is de-platformed by GFTM in the US.
This commitment made by GFTM to the European Commission is an instrument used to justify the illegal, monopolistic collusion to deny business to and to silence certain US speakers and publishers. The fact that the EU demanded this commitment only from GFTM is more evidence that these platforms/companies are a monopoly on the information distribution in the US and the EU.

This piece follows up on the recent exposure of a web of NGOs pervasively entwined with the US and foreign governments to suppress conservative speech in the US and allied countries.
The hellish triad of the Tech against Terrorism (TAT), the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT), and its “research” arm Global Network on Extremism and Technology (GNET), need more attention. Although TAT and GIFCT have the word terrorism in their names, they expanded the scope of their targeting to what they call ‘violent extremism‘. The phrase ‘violent extremism’ is a code word for robust conservatism. GNET produces pseudo-scientific texts teaching and justifying crackdowns on conservative speech in violation of the First Amendment and US laws, including anti-trust.

The fake news media is on the take. It is funded by Google and, to lesser extent, other Big Tech. From Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s Congressional Testimony in March 2021: Continue reading How Google Funds Fake News Media
New evidence of the “Democrat branch” of the government’s manipulation (censorship and sabotage) of social media ahead of the 2020 elections has emerged. This interference was led by DHS officials, with the Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO) playing a key role. “Craig Newmark Philanthropies” contributed $5 million to the creation and operation of the SIO in 2019. Craig Newmark Philanthropies is a section of the Newmark criminal enterprise in charge of political influence in furthering the enterprise’s goals.
Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn/Microsoft) was also involved with the Stanford Cyber Policy Center.
The following explains Craig Newmark’s desire to control the information flow.
Craigslist, Inc. has been in the business of facilitating child sex abuse, sex trafficking, and illegal prostitution since 2008 or even earlier. In 90% of the US, these crimes were craigslist’s only business from November 2008 to July 2013. Continue reading CISA, SIO, and Craigslist Sex Trafficking Business
On 2023-1-17, DC Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell issued a warrant, demanding Twitter to give special prosecutor Jack Smith private information of tens of millions of American citizens, mostly Trump supporters, including “… information relating to all other interactions between the SUBJECT ACCOUNT [@realDonaldTrump] and other Twitter users from October 2020 to January 2021, including all users who have followed, unfollowed, muted, unmuted, blocked, or unblocked the SUBJECT ACCOUNT… all lists of Twitter users who have favorited or retweeted tweets posted by the account, as well as all tweets that include the username associated with the account ...” Continue reading How Big Tech shares private users data with the Biden regime
By Assenting to Big Tech TOS with Only Minor Changes
In 2009, the Obama administration assented to Terms of Service of hand-picked social media platforms with only minor changes (not even minor changes with Twitter) and created multiple accounts on them. Consequently, these Platforms – including Google YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn – became dominant. Continue reading Obama Admin Shared Government Authority with Big Tech
Google punishes websites for merely hosting conservative authors and independent doctors. Worse, it penalizes websites for linking to content that it does not like.
Google and Microsoft continue choking independent thought on the Internet. The following are screenshots from SimilarWeb.com, showing traffic sources of Substack and Medium.com.
They have the same business model: hosting medium-sized articles of multiple authors, allowing access to free and to some of them for a fee. Substack hosts many conservative and non-conformist authors. Medium.com purged them a few years ago. The difference in the search traffic (mainly from Google) is enormous: Substack receives <12% of the traffic from the search, while Medium.com gets more than 57%. Take a look at the red columns in both figures. This percentage would be approximately the same if Google were honest. Continue reading Google and Microsoft Choke Independent Thought
