Mainstream Media – Fake News, Hate News

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

Google Ads on a Terrorist and Violent Revolutionary Site

Google,

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.

Aided by WaPo, China Interfered in the 2016 Elections Against Trump

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

Advertisers Boycotts – Think Before You Jump

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

What a Study of Lobsters Teaches about the Democratic Party

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!

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!

Facebook CEO is “uncomfortable” Being a World Censor!

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!

Notes 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. To give you just one example, in 2015, Google czar Eric Schmidt — who, at one point, had offered to oversee Hillary’s digital campaign — set up a secretive tech company called The Groundwork, the sole purpose of which was to make Hillary president. It was staffed by many of the same people who served on Obama’s 2012 tech team, which was also supervised by Schmidt.”

“So who has the power to change minds and flip elections? It’s the platforms: and that means Google, Facebook, and, to a much lesser extent, Twitter.”

“In 2016, the world was disrupted by hubris. Executives at Google and Facebook were sloppy and complacent – overconfident about the outcome of the election. Asleep at the wheel, especially during the final weeks of the campaign, they allowed conservative content to spread like wildfire on their platforms. Continue reading Notes 2018

Motion to Intervene in Support of Obamanet Repeal

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 Web Without Mandatory Net Neutrality

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 groupsContinue reading The Web Without Mandatory Net Neutrality

Google Interfered in the Alabama Senate Elections

Google has interfered in the Alabama 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.

Fake News about Putin and Jews

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

Intimidating the “Deniers” to Enforce the “Consensus”

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”

DNC is Involved in Possible Treason

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

California: Do Not Trust Jerry Brown to Handle the Flu Epidemic

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 …”

Google Search Fraud

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

Google and Twitter Censor non-Leftist Views Under Pretext of “Extremist Propaganda”

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”

Google Has Suspended My Adwords Account

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

US Tech Companies Must Remain Loyal

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

Google Liability under Title II

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

Obamanet vs Freedom of Press

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

#JerryBrownForPrison: “we need to wash our brains out”

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”

21 Self-Proclaimed Internet Creators Join Al Gore!

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!

Repeal of Fake Net Neutrality aka Obamanet

“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

Useful Links to Real Climate Skeptics

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)

WattsUpWithThat by Anthony Watts,  is the the world’s most viewed site Continue reading Useful Links to Real Climate Skeptics

Notes 2017 Nov-Dec

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.

Chronicles of the Club of Concerned Billionaires: Twitter

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.  Continue reading Chronicles of the Club of Concerned Billionaires: Twitter

Notebook 2017 Q4

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

Fake “Debunking” of Oregon Petition

Case #13482. Fake debunking of the Oregon Petition.

The Oregon Petition (1998) against climate alarmism have 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

Fake News, Marked as Truth

Fake News peddlers noticed that they’re not trusted and found what they think of as an ingenuous way of re-establishing this trust – by marking their content with Trust Indicators, also called Truth Indicators (1).  The notorious Poynter Institute, which oversees a group of self-appointed fact-checkers, says: 

The project’s Truth Indicators will be placed on news sites as well as in search results. They are meant to provide a layer of assurance to readers about the content they’re looking at. 

The Trust/Truth Indicators have computer codes that allow search engines and “social media” sites to recognize and give preferential treatment to that features these indicators.  Each member of the GFTM (Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Microsoft) monopoly has started using them or openly threatened their customers and partners by announcing the intent to do so (Facebook, Google), in violation of the anti-trust laws. 

Craig Newmark (founder of craigslist), Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Google, the Democracy Fund, the Knight Foundation, and the Markkula Foundation have taken the responsibility for funding this project (2).  It’s hosted by publicly funded Santa Clara University but is global in its ambitions and includes participants from Germany, Italy, and other countries. The project claims being non-partisan but is a hyper-partisan in fact.  Its participants span the gamut from far left publications like Mother Jones to the anti-Trump non entities like the Independent Journal Review, alleged by Wikipedia to be founded by former Republican staffers in 2012. 

Oregon Petition: All Signatures were Verified. “Fact Checkers” Lie and Project

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.  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.

Freeman Dyson on the Soil as a Carbon Sink

Renowned physicist and mathematician Professor Freeman Dyson is a liberal. Nevertheless, he rejects climate alarmism and alleged “scientific consensus” that increase in the air CO2 concentration from burning fossil fuels and other human activities is harmful, or causes dangerous global warming.  But he has found and published a solution to this non-problem about ten years ago.  The solution is accumulating extra CO2 in the top soil.  Those who considered increase of CO2 in the atmosphere to be a problem had plenty of time to discuss, test, and start implementing his proposal. See Edge.org, August 9, 2007 (9,800 words). Continue reading Freeman Dyson on the Soil as a Carbon Sink

Google CEO Sundar Pichai Says Right Things

Google CEO Sundar Pichai: “I recognise that, in the Valley, people are obsessed with the pace of technological change… it’s tough to get that part right… We rush sometimes, and can misfire for an average person. As humans, I don’t know whether we want change that fast – I don’t think we do.

Wise words, especially said in the context of the AI discussion. From an interview to The Guardian, October 2017 (https://archive.is/yEh1n).  The Guardian is not worthy attention from such men.

Not News: Google has Abused its Monopoly Again

Google has discontinued its Custom Search Engine (CSE) product.  For a fee, Google CSE allowed its customers to query a degraded version of the Google search index. That enticed potential competitors to rely on Google CSE rather than building full search engines with their own indexing capacity.  Now Google is shutting them down by pulling out CSE.  I am not sure that it’s legal for a monopolist to handle its potential competitors in this manner.

I used Google CSE in the Sane Climate Search and Google shut me off a few days ago.  The Sane Climate Search is out.  I did receive a notice more than a year ago.
