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

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. 

We are Made of Atoms that San Francisco AI Hates

The AI does not hate you, nor does it love you, but you are made out of atoms which it can use for something else.” (Eliezer Yudkowsky, Artificial Intelligence as a Positive and Negative Factor in Global Risk in Global Catastrophic Risks, 2008)

What if the AI is taught to hate the atoms of which you are made?  Google Search is an artificial intelligence system trained by some people that texts to hate carbon atoms, of which we are made.  Other web AIs, with which Google Search AI interacts, share this trait.  Their interaction creates another AI adverse to humanity – the “San Francisco AI.”  Almost all new information received by journalists, politicians, bureaucrats, and many citizens is influenced by the San Francisco AI.  Its contribution to climate alarmism and “the resistance” to Trump should not be underestimated.

Progressives Plan Treason Funded by Google and Facebook

Progressives openly plan to aid an enemy attacking the nation when they get an opportunity.

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. [disgusting comparison is omitted] 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. (1)

Google and Facebook fund them, using shareholders’ money. (2)

Also, Sierra Club funds them using “charitable” money.  The American Federation of Teachers and The National Education Association fund them using union dues.

Climate Alarmism Meets SJW in Google

After Google fired its prodigy software engineer James Damore for writing an internal memo acknowledging differences between sexes, Breitbart’s Allum Bokhari started a series of articles about the internal Google culture of recent years. From Rebels of Google: ‘Senior Leaders Focus on Diversity First and Technology Second’:

The complaint [by NLRB] alleges that [Google’s] Senior Vice President Urs Holzle and numerous managers in his organization actively stoked up witch hunts in 2015 and 2016 intended to muzzle low-level employees who raised concerns about the company’s practices [referencing “workplace diversity and social justice initiatives”].

Google’s Senior Vice President Urs Holze is also a Vice Chair and Board Member of the World Wildlife Fund (1, 2).  The World Wildlife Fund was alleged to manage a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization in a civil RICO lawsuit (5:16-cv-211-C, Goldstein v. Climate Action Network et al., dismissed in June 2017).

According to WWF, “Hölzle manages many of Google’s other green initiatives, including the company’s purchases of renewable energy for its operations,” which is another fraud awaiting investigation.

Facebook Filtered out Conservatives for Years

Contrary to its claims that Trending stories were selected automatically, Facebook used a team of hand-picked leftist journos that routinely suppressed “conservative” news.  Facebook denies that but its Guidelines had an obvious effect: a very aggressive filtering out of conservative news.

Gizmodo, May 9, 2016: Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News (1)

Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.

Reddit is too Red for Climate Realists

It is getting more weird on Reddit.  I have been banned after re-posting the link to my article, pointing to the math errors in IPCC climate models and to the failure by so-called “climate modelling community” to develop specialized chips that would have allowed it to produce its garbage predictions thousands times faster: Continue reading Reddit is too Red for Climate Realists

Wikipedia, a Housemaid for Climate Alarmism

Wikipedia was hit by a scandal in 2009 when the public learned that William Connolley, a  British Green Party politician and avid climate alarmist, was a Wikipedia administrator using his privileges to push climate alarmism while simultaneously suppressing dissenting voices.  In addition to this, he personally edited more than 5,000 Wikipedia articles related to climate change debates.  Wikipedia revoked his administrator’s privileges and the scandal has since dissipated.
