“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.
Mark Bray, a visiting professor at Dartmouth (the Dartmouth Gender Research Institute), has been acknowledged by the “liberals” (who became the New New Left) as one of their own and a speaker for antifa. Mark Bray and his book Antifa: The Antifascist Handbook have been embraced and promoted by Washington Post (1), NBC News (this article and on Meet the Press), and DemocracyNow! (3). That establish strong connection between the “respectable” Left and following advocacy by Mark Bray (highlights are mine):
“… we have the power to strike back at the racial hierarchy that underpins the very essence of whiteness. This does not mean adopting a conservative ‘color-blind’ outlook, but rather targeting sources of white privilege and struggling in solidarity with the disinherited of the world. This does not mean exterminating people who are currently categorized as white, but abolishing the classificatory scheme that renders them so.” Continue reading Genocidal Ideas of the “Respectable” Left
I have been interviewed by the famous Lars Larson on his national The Lars Larson Show about the Google search bias. You can listen to 09/19/2017 The Lars Larson Show podcast. The interview segment is somewhere in the middle.
The following table shows that the most visibility of neo-nazi sites dailystormer.com and stormfront.org came from formerly mainstream leftist news outlets. stormfront.org had PGSTN = 25.0%, and additionally received 6.9% traffic from Google’s Youtube and Wikipedia. No traffic from conservative, right, or even “alt-right” sites has been recorded. Continue reading Former MSM and Google have Lifted Neo-Nazi Sites

Papers Measuring Google Intentional Bias
Artificial bias has been found to be intentionally introduced by the Google team in addition to the natural bias caused by the media dominance of the Left and the influence foreign political entity websites.
Leo Goldstein, Google’s search bias against conservative news sites has been quantified (Sep 2017) – my latest paper. The full title is A Method of Google Search Bias Quantification and Its Applications in Climate Debate and General Political Discourse. Continue reading Recent Research into Google Search Bias
My new research paper A Method of Google Search Bias Quantification and Its Applications in Climate Debate and General Political Discourse is published in WUWT. Most people observe that Google search results on political topics are left leaning. But, it was hard to determine whether such leaning was a simple reflection of the left/liberal cultural dominance on the web or if the Google search team intentionally (or “artificially”) biased rankings. This paper demonstrates and even quantifies such intentional or artificial bias.
After publication, I found a 2016 study that also shows that Google results are artificially biased in favor of liberal ideology and Democratic Party candidates: Google bias in search results; 40% lean left or liberal (Matt Bentley / CanIRank.com). From the Matt Bentley study:
“Does it make sense, for example, that someone researching “Republican platform” should be presented only the official text of the platform and seven left-leaning results highly critical of that platform, with zero results supporting it?”
“… we would expect top ranked search results to have more external links compared to lower ranked search results. Instead, pages demonstrating a left or far left political slant made it into the top results with significantly fewer external links compared to pages rated balanced. Pages with a right-leaning slant needed significantly more links to make it into the top results.”
“According to recent Google findings, online search is the resource that 87% of the population turns to first when a question arises. Online search plays a particularly prominent role in the democratic process during election season. During the 2012 election cycle, a survey of persuadable voters revealed that 49% get their news about campaigns and the election online, largely through search engines like Google, and that these voters generally trust the information they find online. Top search results are broadly perceived as being the most accurate and authoritative by members of the public with the first five search results accounting for an estimated 67% of all clicks and the first three results alone accounting for over 55% of all clicks. In their 2015 study, Robert Epstein and Ronald Robertson concluded that the order of search results can have a big impact on voter behavior — and in the event of a close election, this effect could even be profound enough to determine the outcome of the election.”
Washington Post: “Breaking from tech giants, Democrats consider becoming an antimonopoly party” (1).
Quotes with comments:
“The Democrats’ anti-monopolists have been winning the argument inside the party. During the Obama years, they’d been routed, as Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, strongly supported the president, and the Federal Trade Commission abandoned an antitrust case against the company.” – Who is not crooked in the Democrat Party?

I noticed that the Amazon logo had disappeared from the “Battle for the Net” participants wall (1). The battle has been waged by the Free Press and other hard Left groups, and supported by the seditious Internet giants to keep intact the order FCC-15-24 that was passed by Obama’s FCC in 2015. That order purported to place the U.S. internet under the Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act in violation of the First Amendment and other Constitutional provisions.

Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power — the hypocrisy of the title is beyond imagination! A former vice president of the U.S. lies and defames elderly and persecuted scientists – and calls it Truth to Power. He should have called it Power against Truth. Luckily, Dr. Roy Spencer has already published a rebuttal:
At the Netroots Nation conference, “one of the most powerful progressive events of the year,” the hard Left and “mainstream” DNC committed sedition and conspiracy, while Google (1) and Facebook (2) insiders shared their knowledge with them.

Where to put a comma? Recent expulsion of the neo-nazi domain DailyStormer from Google made news. The unusually high ranking that the DailyStormer website enjoyed in Google Search before this news completely escaped coverage. The following screenshot shows Google search results for Allum Bokhari (performed on August 10, 2017 in Anaheim, California, using the clean browser configuration; no prior search for the term from the same IP).

From the Complaint:
“Plaintiffs Energy Transfer Equity, L.P., Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (collectively
“Energy Transfer” or “Plaintiffs”), as and for their complaint against Greenpeace International (aka “Stichting Greenpeace Council”), Greenpeace, Inc. (“GP-Inc.”), Greenpeace Fund, Inc. (“GP-Fund”) (collectively, the “Greenpeace Defendants”), BankTrack (aka “Stichting BankTrack”), Earth First!, and John and Jane Does 1-20, allege as follows:
- This case involves a network of putative not-for-profits and rogue eco-terrorist
groups who employ patterns of criminal activity and campaigns of misinformation to target legitimate companies and industries with fabricated environmental claims and other purported misconduct, inflicting billions of dollars in damage. The network’s pattern of criminal and other misconduct includes (i) defrauding charitable donors and cheating federal and state tax authorities with claims that they are legitimate tax-free charitable organizations; (ii) cyberattacks; (ii) intentional and malicious interference with their targeted victim’s business relationships; and (iv) physical violence, threats of violence and the purposeful destruction of private and federal property. Energy Transfer is the latest legitimate business targeted by this network. Continue reading Energy Transfer Files RICO Lawsuit Against Greenpeace
The leftist echo-chamber became so detached from reality partly because of an accidentally unleashed artificial intelligence system that had come into existence through interaction between Google Search, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft Bing, Wikipedia, Reddit etc.
A new paper explains how the morons view the world through The Matrix.
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.
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.

14 Reasons why Silicon Valley embraced Climate Alarmism was published in WUWT on February 15, 2017. Additional points:
- Silicon Valley consists from a large number of individuals with very similar professional backgrounds and a small pool of knowledge. Communication in such groups tends to reinforce their preconceived notions. Another place with this social phenomenon is Hollywood.

The main organization behind the malicious smear campaign that fraudulently uses the phrase “net neutrality” is Free Press, a revolutionary Marxist group. Robert W. McChesney, a founder of Free Press, sounds like Lenin. From his 2014 article Sharp Left Turn for the Media Reform Movement (emphasis is mine):
“In subsequent years the U.S. media reform movement blossomed, led primarily by a group I co-founded, Free Press. On a number of major issues … Free Press led the charge in Washington, DC. The thinking behind the group and the movement was to have one foot in the battles of the day as they were being fought in the capital, while having another foot doing organizing in the field, with the idea of expanding popular awareness and involvement in the movement. We realized that for most people the range of media policy outcomes then countenanced in Washington seemed abstract or inconsequential. We needed to capture their imagination with bold and radical proposals. The strategy was to create an army for structural media reform …”

Quotes from dissenting opinions on the Federal Communication Commission “Open Internet Order” FCC-15-24 (the Obamanet order).
“Americans love the free and open Internet. We relish our freedom to speak, to post, to rally, to learn, to listen, to watch, and to connect online. The Internet has become a powerful force for freedom, both at home and abroad. So it is sad to witness the FCC’s unprecedented attempt to replace that freedom with government control.
It shouldn’t be this way. For twenty years, there’s been a bipartisan consensus in favor of a free and open Internet. A Republican Congress and a Democratic President enshrined in the Telecommunications Act of 1996 the principle that the Internet should be a ‘vibrant and competitive free market . . . unfettered by Federal or State regulation.’ And dating back to the Clinton Administration, every FCC Chairman—Republican and Democrat—has let the internet grow free from utility-style regulation.”
“But today, the FCC abandons those policies. … It seizes unilateral authority to regulate Internet conduct … . So why is the FCC changing course? Why is the FCC turning its back on Internet freedom? … We are flip-flopping for one reason and one reason alone. President Obama told us to do so.”
“The Commission’s decision to adopt President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works.” Continue reading Net Neutrality Realism vs. Obamanet

The New York Times has exhibited its scientific ignorance again. This time, it republished a tweet from DPRK News Service accusing the American military of “near total ignorance of ballistic science.” Fortunately, DPRK News Service is a parody Twitter account, so this case received some publicity.
This case is not just funny. It demonstrates that the New York Times cannot distinguish a fake news service from a real one. Not surprisingly, it regularly publishes fake news. This case also shows the scientific illiteracy and obscurantism of the formerly mainstream media and its readiness to repeat any claims about science, as long as they fulfill their ideological needs. Their claims of the Trump administration’s “ignorance of climate science” are similarly based on a hoax (fraud, to be accurate).
A new article The Leftist Echo Chamber in the Digital Age is published on this site. It is about the social dynamics inside of the liberal public sphere that have let it slide so low and so far to the left.
It is hard to dispute that today’s political polarization is unprecedented since the Civil War. I think it has been caused by three tightly linked developments: a) the radical Left takeover of the liberal establishment and Democratic party; b) the radicalized lib/Dem establishment takeover of the media, academia, government, nonprofit sector, and most academic institutions; and c) foreign interference aiding and egging on the lib/Dem establishment.

From today’s 9th Circuit Appeals Court decision: “We conclude that the President, in issuing the Executive Order, exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress.”
The president’s authority is defined in the Constitution. It is not delegated by Congress.
“In suspending the entry of more than 180 million nationals from six countries, suspending the entry of all refugees, and reducing the cap on the admission of refugees from 110,000 to 50,000 for the 2017 fiscal year, the President did not meet the essential precondition to exercising his delegated authority …”
The president exercises authority he has under the Constitution. And does the Court really want the entry of 180 million nationals from Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen?
Executive Order 13780 is a softened version of Executive Order 13769, which had been illegally stricken down by the same Court.
2017-06-26 Update: the Supreme Court unanimously confirms the Travel Ban.
This development is described completely differently in the different media:
The rebel alliance begins: Governors of New York, California, Washington form a coalition to fight climate change – according to FastCompany.
THE TREASONOUS SECESSION OF CLIMATE CONFEDERACY STATES . Prosecute Governor Brown for treason – according to FrontPageMag.
I find myself in the middle between these extremes. It is just another act of sedition by demonrats.
Some things don’t change. Buckley Jr., William. Up From Liberalism (1959):
“A second marked characteristic of the Liberal in debate with the conservative is the tacit premise that debate is ridiculous because there is nothing whatever to debate about . Arguments based on fact are especially to be avoided. Many people shrink from arguments over facts because facts are tedious , because they require a formal familiarity with the subject under discussion , and because they can be ideologically dislocative . Many Liberals accept their opinions , ideas , and evaluations as others accept revealed truths , and the facts are presumed to conform to the doctrines , as any dutiful fact will ; so why discuss the fact?” (Kindle Locations 522-527).
I think that anybody who attempted to engage a Liberal in a climate debate would wholeheartedly endorse this statement. Continue reading William Buckley on Liberals’ Facts Avoidance Habit
A Reddit post linking to the Brief Summary of Science for the Climate Debate received an intelligent reply. I thank its author. The following is a complete rebuttal of this reply.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a plant food.
Intentionally misleading. Water is human drink, but people still die in floods.
You drown when concentration of water around you is 100%. Atmospheric concentration of CO2 is less than 0.05%. Everything becomes harmful when there is too much of it, but the current and foreseeable concentrations of CO2 are beneficial, not harmful. Continue reading Reddit Debate about Brief SOS
Ezra Klein is the Editor-in-Chief of Vox, founder of JournoList, contributor to WaPo, Bloomberg News, and MSNBC, and an all-around liberal icon. A few years ago he said and wrote that the Constitution was written 100 years ago. This level of ignorance is expected from modern libs. What is surprising is that Mr. Klein has graduated from the University of California with a major in Political Science! If the lib icons have no idea about the subjects they supposedly studied, is it any surprise that they know nothing about physics, biology, and engineering?
