Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco!
In fact, it is much worse. Big Tech has committed much worse fraud on its consumers than the Big Tobacco has been accused. Worse, Big Tech funded groups intimidating its opponents, and even lawmakers and government officials. Big Tech also uses its control of the communications line to silence its critics.
Jun 4, 2018 – Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Twitter (TWTR) use their internet gatekeepers’ positions to manipulate (inflate) their stock prices.
Mar 22, 2018 – Dr. Robert Epstein commented on the phony Cambridge Analytica scandal in an article, Cambridge Analytica Is Not The Problem. Google And Facebook ARE The Problem. Quotes:
“During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton had far more powerful digital tools at her disposal than Trump did. Continue reading Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco plus
In August 2017, Netflix (NFLX) offered for sale illegal marijuana all over the United States to promote another of its junk junkies-centered shows.
The offer was placed as an editorial article (an advertorial, in the professional slang) in multiple publications, including Variety (“Netflix made the point in its press materials that it’s not profiting off the sales of the product, which are for promotional purposes” — they should tell that to a judge), Mashable, Rolling Stone, and on Twitter. Continue reading Netflix is an illegal drugs dealer
Obama administration has passed mandatory net neutrality rules that force all internet users to pay for the Netflix internet traffic, whether they watch Netflix or not. This subsidy transfers at least $15B of citizens’ money into the Netflix pockets each year. The capitalized value of it exceeds $200B, which is higher than the NFLX market value. In exchange, Netflix made a $50M+ production deal with Obama.
Who said “corruption”? For the Demonrats, it is business as usual.
Clapper wanted to say that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign as a side effect of spying on “Russians.” In the last moment, he corrected himself and this is what came from his mouth: “[FBI] was not spying on the campaign but on what Russians were doing, and in the sense, unfortunately, [long stumble] what they were trying to do was to protect our political system…”
Taken literally, he said that it was unfortunate for the FBI to protect our political system. But in reality, he communicated that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign, just as Trump says. Either way, Clapper admitted the guilt of the involved FBI officials.

Google has interfered in the US Senate Elections on behalf of democrat Doug Jones, possibly on demand from a European government or political party. I know Google does such things because some of my AdWords messages were banned by Google in the U.S. after I had expanded targeting to the EU.
I know only a small part of this interference: on December 4, Google banned my paid message running on Google Adwords sites in Alabama. Below are the renderings of the message by Google Adwords.

The conservative media keeps tripping itself over lies invented by the left-stream media. I cannot blame it. People know the left-stream media lies, but still read it and take in much of what is written there. This time, conservatives fell for the fake news that Guccifer 2.0 (who took credit for release of the damning internal DNC documents) revealed as a GRU officer.
On or around March 21, 2018, The Daily Beast, a leftist tabloid on the lower end of the spectrum, published an “exclusive”: “‘Lone DNC Hacker’ Guccifer 2.0 Slipped Up and Revealed He Was a Russian Intelligence Officer.” Continue reading Why has FBI Accepted DNC’s “Russian Hacking” Claims?
My article Time to End the Resistance of the Swamp has been published in the American Thinker. The following are references and remarks to it. (updated on April 30, 2018)
A search warrant is a permission to conduct a search or seizure that would be otherwise illegal under the Fourth Amendment. This permission is given by a court to the executive branch, all power of which is vested in the president. Neither search warrant nor other court order is a permission for federal agents to act against the will of the president. Seizing president’s documents in order to harm the president is illegal.
In 2014, a bestselling conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose “2016: Obama’s America” was the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time, was sentenced to eight months of prison (a “halfway house”), community service, psychological counseling (sic!), and 5 years of probation for not observing formalities when donating $10,000 to his friend’s Senate campaign (see the gloating press release.) The prosecution was initiated by the FBI under James Comey and conducted by Obama’s inaugural donor and appointee Preet Bharara. But the investigation that led to the prosecution might had been started by Robert Mueller, who was FBI Director from 2001 to September 2013, when James Comey replaced him. Bharara was the head of the same US Attorney office for Southern District of New York that ordered the illegal raid against the President’s private lawyer. All familiar faces, aren’t they? Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and two other Republican Senators wrote a letter to Comey, questioning the FBI allegation that the investigation of Dinesh D’Souza was a result of a “routine review by the FBI of campaign filings.” The letter went unanswered because the allegation was obviously false: a routine review is unlikely to yield only one suspect, and most election law violations are referred to the Federal Election Commission, not to federal prosecutors. Continue reading End the Resistance of the Swamp (Endnotes)
The current “mainstream” media is a legacy of the Obama regime. It does not only shamelessly lies, but also participates in suppression of the views that were truly mainstream before Obama administration. It also colludes with the so-called “Big Tech,” formerly excellent technical companies that have become corrupt through complicity or under influence of the Obama administration. Continue reading Mainstream Media – Fake News, Hate News
This is a notice that you provide ad revenue to an organization or group that seems to attempt a violent and armed overthrow of the government, and recruits, indoctrinates, and trains mentally ill persons to carry it out. Similar activity might have been behind the murder attempt against Steve Scalise and other Republican Congressmen, committed by mentally ill James Hodgkinson in 2017.

In October 2015, DailyCaller published an article China, Russia Pay Washington Post To Publish Their Propaganda. The article said:
“Chinese and Russian propaganda supplements are regularly included in The Washington Post, but the widely read newspaper won’t say how much money it gets on the deals.
China Watch – a China Daily publication – and Russia Beyond The Headlines – a Rossiyskaya Gazeta publication – have both appeared in the Post for years as paid advertising supplements. Both foreign periodicals are owned and operated by their respective governments.”
The Russian propaganda supplement of the Washington Post, hosted at russianow.washingtonpost.com, disappeared in 2015 (according to the Web Archive; the Web Archive might be connected to Amazon.com; Amazon is co-owned and the Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos). That means that the Russian government stopped paying the Washington Post long before the 2016 elections. But the Chinese government continued paying WaPo through the elections campaign and after it through the present day. Continue reading Aided by WaPo, China Interfered in the 2016 Elections Against Trump
An ugly phenomenon has been spreading widely in the last few years. Small groups linked to the DNC, or even being far left from it, declared boycotts of conservative speakers, journalists, or publications, and demanded advertisers to sever ties with them. And many advertisers have been glad to oblige.
Recently, an insolent pup called to boycott Laura Ingraham, a Fox News personality: “Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers …“. That youngster is a victim of a mass schooling under the Obama regime, and such behavior might have been expected. But advertising executives are mature men and women that should recall the times when threats and attempts to silence the opponent in a political debate were unacceptable. Make America Great Again means that these norms of debate are coming back, among others. Continue reading Advertisers Boycotts – Think Before You Jump
Why have the Democratic Party, mainstream media, and other formerly liberal institutions been acting so crazily after the November 2016 elections? Why has the liberal dog allowed its far-left tail to wiggle so vigorously? One reason is that some individuals within the Obama administration and other powerful institutions have committed unspeakable crimes, and want to implicate as many others as possible. But reading Jordan Peterson suggested Continue reading What a Study of Lobsters Teaches about the Democratic Party
Stand with Dr. Bruce Gilley against the international persecution of his anti-anti-colonialism views! From Legal Insurrection:
Bruce Gilley of Portland State University (image above) published an article titled “The Case for Colonialism” in the decidedly anti-Colonial journal Third World Quarterly (home of the [despicable] Edward Said Award [and having notorious Noam Chomsky as a co-editor]).
In the Third World Quarterly piece, Gilley argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, Western colonialism was “as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found.” Continue reading Stand with Dr. Bruce Gilley!
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook in an interview: “I feel fundamentally uncomfortable sitting here in California at an office, making content policy decisions for people around the world.”
Mark – if you feel uncomfortable doing that to us, imagine how your victims feel! Imagine what people from other countries think about this country because of your business. Well, you don’t need to strain your imagination. You listened to their governments and promised to accommodate them as the Obama regime used to do — at the expense of Americans. But this is not the topic of this post. Continue reading Facebook CEO is “uncomfortable” Being a World Censor!
An axis of the Democrat Attorneys General, far left groups, and various opportunists filed a bunch of lawsuits, challenging the repeal of Obamanet and mandatory net neutrality. These challenges have been consolidated into the case 18-70506, pending before the 9th Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco (ouch!).
I filed a Motion to Intervene on behalf of the FCC and the United States of America. The Motion states that Obamanet and mandatory net neutrality violate my rights, as well as the rights of almost every other American, under the Articles I, II, and III of the Constitution, and the I, IV, IX, and X Amendments. Continue reading Motion to Intervene in Support of Obamanet Repeal
The idea of government regulations of ISPs for net neutrality, expressed by Tim What’s up in 2003 and mostly adopted by the FCC in 2005, turned on its head under Obama’s administration, which turned it from a user’s right to an obligation. This mandatory net neutrality (“MNN”) was probably the worst violation of the First Amendment since the passage of the Bill of Rights. The supporters of MNN usually claim that it protects users against abuse by their ISPs. In fact, it “protects” users from exercising choice regarding content. The idea that ISPs have strong incentives to mistreat their paying customers is foolish. But even if an ISP does that, the customers have a large set of consumer protection laws on their side. Most cases cited by MNN supporters are lies or misinterpretations. Somehow, consumer protection laws seem to fail (or are not applied) to protect consumers against Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, etc.
We access the internet media under absurd rules, unprecedented for any other media: a typical user paying annual internet access fees of $1,000 cannot choose toward what internet content and services this money would be applied! Obama’s FCC has already made the choice for us. And the choice reflects influence of the far-left groups. Continue reading The Web Without Mandatory Net Neutrality
Fake News Networks announced that Putin had blamed supposed “Russian election interference” on Jews. A CNN headline shouted — Putin: Maybe Jews or minorities behind US election interference (1). But this is a lie. Unfortunately, many Jewish organizations have taken the bait.
In the interview with NBC, Putin refused even to contemplate the proposition that the Russian government was behind the alleged interference. Speaking of the trolls on social media, Putin said (2):
“So what if they’re Russians?” Putin said of the people named in last month’s indictment. “There are 146 million Russians. So what? … I don’t care. I couldn’t care less. … They do not represent the interests of the Russian state.” Continue reading Fake News about Putin and Jews
Mark Morano has published on WUWT a bonus chapter that was too strong to make it into his The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change! From Intimidating the “Deniers” to Enforce the “Consensus”:
… why don’t more scientists buck the “consensus?” The answer is simple:
Anyone who questions the climate change scare is attacked and threatened. Continue reading Intimidating the “Deniers” to Enforce the “Consensus”
The Netroots Nation, a radical leftist organization, held its annual conference “drawing thousands of attendees from around the country and beyond” on August 11-13, 2017 (1a). Despite (or because) its radicalism, the conference has been attended by very high level democrat politicians, including DNC Vice Chair Keith Ellison, former Vice President Al Gore, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Washington State Attorney General Robert Ferguson. During one of the sessions the conference organizers raised and set in motion a hidden army aiding an enemy that will attack this nation. The session announcement says:
“THE PROGRESSIVE RESPONSE TO (PREDICTABLE) EMERGENCIES: NATIONAL SECURITY CRISES AND DOMESTIC CRACKDOWNS IN THE TIME OF TRUMP
Moments of crisis, such as extremist violence or an international crisis, create windows for seizing power, enacting racist repression of entire communities, restricting civil liberties, cracking down on domestic opposition and going to war. <H-word> used the Reichstag Fire; Putin used the 1999 apartment bombings; George W. Bush used 9/11. With Trump, Bannon and their allies in Congress, progressives must be prepared to fight back in the first hours and days of a national security crisis.” (1b) Continue reading DNC is Involved in Possible Treason
The Californian government might be handling the current flu epidemic just like it handled the wildfires – incompetently, indifferently, and with an eye towards political gain. Somebody needs to watch it.
Bloomberg, February 9, 2018: Flu Is Causing 1 in 10 American Deaths and Climbing:
“Along with the pneumonia it spawns, this year’s epidemic may be killing 4,000 people every week.
The amount of influenza ravaging the U.S. this year rivals levels normally seen when an altogether new virus emerges, decimating a vulnerable population that hasn’t had a chance to develop any defenses. It’s an unexpected phenomenon that public health experts are still trying to decode. The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported now are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009 …”

Update. The controlling legal precedent seems to be the following quote from the Supreme Court Decision:
“To determine whether an actor’s conduct possesses “sufficient communicative elements to bring the First Amendment into play,” the Supreme Court has asked whether “[a]n intent to convey a particularized message was present and [whether] the likelihood was great that the message would be understood by those who viewed it.””
Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397, 404 (1989) (quoting Spence v. Washington, 418 U.S. 405, 410-11 (1974) (per curiam)).
When Google eliminates climate realist or conservative websites from its top search results, the “message” is certainly not understood by those who view it. Further, this is the main purpose of this conduct – to suppress speech without other people understanding that. Google also flatly denies that it conveys any message in its search results. It claims impartiality and attempts to provide “the most useful and relevant” search results. Thus, intentional distortion of the search results by Google does not even bring the First Amendment into play. It is really fraud, not speech.
Google Search is a commercial service that Google provides to its users. Google must provide this service in good faith and in accordance with other applicable laws. Google search is service, not “speech.” Continue reading Google Search Fraud
I read the testimonies of Google, Facebook, and Twitter executives before the Senate Commerce Committee on Combating the Spread of Extremist Propaganda (January 17, 2018), and I would advise you not to trust them very much. Under the pretext of fighting “extremist propaganda” (a vague term, probably selected to conceal partisan differences on what constitutes extremist propaganda) Google and Twitter suppress speech dissenting from leftist orthodoxy. For example, Google has demonetized some PragerU videos on a range of topics and is being sued by them. I have been banned from Google AdWords and Twitter Ads for speech opposing climate alarmism.
The suppression of conservative websites in Google organic search results has been documented many times. Continue reading Google and Twitter Censor non-Leftist Views Under Pretext of “Extremist Propaganda”
Final update: Google has permanently banned me from AdWords:
“We’ve confirmed that your account is in violation of our AdWords policies. Since this decision is final, the account will not be reinstated. Please avoid creating additional AdWords accounts, as they will be subjected to the same suspension.
Our support team will not be able to give you any more specifics on the suspension.”
(Updated on January 9 after the initial publication on January 8.)
Google suspended my Adwords account two days ago. Continue reading Google Has Suspended My Adwords Account
Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft (GFTM) and other companies that started as platforms or service providers and became content vendors are American companies subject to all U.S laws. Their directors and executives are American citizens and residents, and owe loyalty to the U.S. That stands true even if they derive most of their income from abroad. Continue reading US Tech Companies Must Remain Loyal
The FCC repeals Obamanet, but throws out net neutrality. That demonstrates difficulties of repealing anything with the name starting with Obama. Obamanet walked all over the First Amendment. Unfortunately, real net neutrality becomes a collateral damage in the process. Continue reading FCC Repeals Obamanet and Throws Out Compulsory Net Neutrality
In 2015, in a vote along partisan lines, the FCC reclassified the Internet to be a telecommunication service subject to Title II of the 1934 Communications Act (the infamous FCC-15-24 Obamanet order). This was done under the pretext of net neutrality, but had nothing to do with net neutrality. Google participated in the preparation of this order, was fully aware of it, did not object. Rumor has it that Eric Schmidt personally wrote parts of the order, and broadened it. Then Google took full advantage of this reclassification and ignored its obligations stemming from it. Continue reading Google Liability under Title II
This article continues Obamanet vs. Net Neutrality, published in the American Thinker. It is about how Obamanet (incorrectly called net neutrality) all but destroyed the freedom of press. The new FCC, chaired by Ajit Pai, voted to repeal and replace it. The repealing order has not been published yet, but already encounters fierce resistance. Thus, we will live under Obamanet for months or years. It is important to understand it in depth, because it is much worse than thought even by conservatives.
The announcement that the FCC would regulate the internet under Title II of the 1934 Communications Act caused righteous outrage (for example: Like Obamacare? You Will Love ObamaNet, NRO, February 2015). The full text was published weeks later and probably went unnoticed. It’s a pity because saddling the internet with antiquated regulations was peanuts compared to its other effects: Continue reading Obamanet vs Freedom of Press
Jerry Brown fiddles while California burns.
Niagara Falls are partially frozen and half of the USA is covered in snow.
A coalition of UN agencies and foreign NGOs has been enticing officials of the U.S. municipalities and even states to collaborate with them directly, bypassing the federal government and breaking the laws. The best known among such attempts is ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Contrary to its name, it’s a centrally controlled foreign political entity. It’s connected to the Climate Action Network (another foreign NGO) and the notorious Agenda 21. Jerry Brown answered their siren song and went completely mad. Continue reading #JerryBrownForPrison: “we need to wash our brains out”
With unbelievable audacity, a group of 21 individuals declared themselves “the pioneers and technologists who created and now operate the Internet” in a foolish letter to senators and representatives (1), and protested the repeal of Obamanet. The fake news media has not contested their claims (this CNBC article is an example), and even used their letter as an argument against the Obamanet repeal.
These individuals, some of whom would not recognize an IP address, are like Baron Munchausen, Continue reading 21 Self-Proclaimed Internet Creators Join Al Gore!
“Two and a half years ago, I said that net neutrality was ‘Obamacare for the Internet.’ At the time, the Obama administration, in its typically deceptive manner, had conflated net neutrality — a worthy idea, as originally defined, to protect an open internet — with reclassifying the internet as a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, a burdensome, behemoth of a law that gives all sorts of authority to the government …” – Senator Ted Cruz, May 1, 2017
On December 14, the Federal Communications Commission chaired by courageous Ajit Pai voted to repeal another Obama legacy: the Orwellian-named “Open Internet Order” FCC-15-24, or Obamanet. Contrary and opposite to the fake news media’s claims, the Obamanet order weakened or eliminated net neutrality, which had been established as FCC regulatory policy in 2005 by the Bush administration. Continue reading Repeal of Fake Net Neutrality aka Obamanet
ClimateDepot, run by Mark Morano, has been called by somebody on the other side a Drudge Report of climate skepticism (another word was used in place of skepticism). ClimateDepot features digests with links to climate skeptics’ news, fresh articles and research reports, and updates them at least daily. There are also original articles. The front page of ClimateDepot has a section of links to both sides of the climate debate. (Try finding links to climate skeptics on the climate alarmism sites)

Make Our Planet Flat Again – Macron yearns to be more ignorant than a medieval peasant. The attempt to mock President Trump backfires.
The Washington Post published an article about today’s “One Planet summit” in Paris: France’s Macron takes lead in climate change battle, with the U.S. absent. The article does not mention that hyper-alarmist German Chancellor Angela Merkel was absent as well.
The fake news is the article featuring an old picture of Merkel with Macro, thus insinuating that she attended.
The Paris Accord anniversary “summit”: not only Donald Trump, but even Angela Merkel does not attend!
The Associated Press (AP) reports that, “Macron’s climate summit in Paris finds new money” (1). I suspect some of this “new money” was found in our pension funds, state and city treasuries, and publicly traded corporations.
Trustees, directors, and officers of the vulnerable funds and corporations are advised of their fiduciary duty to the employees, retirees, and stockholders. That means that not a penny from their respective funds should be lost to the “climate finance.”
There is a list comprising old offenders, such as CalPERS, CalSTRS, treasuries, and pension funds in a number of blue states.

When one might think that Google, Microsoft, and Twitter can’t abuse their power any longer, one is reminded that they can. The Twitter worker who had deleted Trump’s account (which was restored 11 minutes later) was not a saboteur. He was a contractor for the Trust and Safety (i.e., censorship) division of Twitter. He just did his job – he deleted an account that received many complaints, according to his words (1, 2). In February 2016, Twitter announced the launch of its Trust and Safety division in response to demands of the European Commission.

A Washington Post reporter explained why he had written fake news in The Washington Post: he had just repeated a fake news from CNN! Then he went on about how influential his article was: “And the instant news cycle got to work. My article was plastered across Google News. … Where I had cited CNN, other news outlets cited me.”
In the end, the reporter refused to apologize to anybody but one reader on Twitter. Fake-stream media ain’t apologize to nobody!
CNN, on its part, did place a “correction note” in the article: “A similar banner was hung in another Polish city in 2015, according to local reports, but not at Saturday’s march [a large march on 11/11/2017 in Warshaw]”. Unnecessary to say, most people who had read the article did not see this correction note. Also, CNN acknowledged it had gotten the main factual allegation of the article wrong, but the conclusions remained the same. Facts be damned! Continue reading Notebook 2017 Q4
Case #13482. Fake debunking of the Oregon Petition.
The Oregon Petition (1998) against climate alarmism has been signed by 17,000+ qualified scientists. The same petition, circulated in 2007, have been signed by 31,000+ qualified scientists and other professionals. This is truth.
Climate alarmists, aided and abetted by non-critical media first, and by fake fact-checkers (like Snopes) and Google later, have spread and continue spreading various falsehoods about the Petition. The most sensational lie was that the Petition signers have not been verified, and included Spice Girls and other fictitious characters. This is not true, as explained in the email from Dr. Arthur Robinson. How could such lie receive so wide circulation? Continue reading Fake “Debunking” of Oregon Petition
