Update: Steele might have learnt what the DNC wanted him to write about Trump directly from the DNC, rather than indirectly through MSM. DOJ official Bruce Ohr reportedly communicated with Steele in the time when his wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS that hired and worked with Steele.
The leaked “opposition research” (mostly smear) on Trump consisted of 230 pages. Only one short paragraph was devoted to allegations about Trump’s relations and attitudes towards Russia. Thus, neither the DNC nor Hillary campaign believed around May 2016 that there was even a small impropriety in Trump’s connections with Russia. The opposition research file was apparently dated December 2015, but the DNC allowed it to leak between late April to early June of 2016 (likely on June 12-14), then advertised it in the WaPo article on June 14, 2016.
The liberal media attitude toward Putin changed from lukewarm to hostile almost overnight between July 16 and July 21, simultaneously with the creation and adoption of the Trump-Putin conspiracy theory as a major part of the Democratic Party line. Continue reading All “Evidence” of “Russian Meddling” Came from the DNC
2018-08-17 update: added more evidence confirming that transfer of large batches of the DNC files to WikiLeaks and The Hill predated the launch of the conspiracy theory of Trump-Putin collusion by the DNC/Hillary on July 18, 2016.
2018-08-16 update: Christopher Steele’s firm Orbis was hired by the DNC contractor Fusion GPS in June 2016, likely in reaction to the leaks which the DNC misattributed to Russia. Given that he started “reporting” within less than three weeks from hiring, Steele’s task was to fabricate evidence in support of allegations of Trump-Putin collusion.
2018-08-10 update: Christopher Steele was on the FBI’s payroll while compiling his phony Trump dossier, shown by the FBI payroll forms declassified on August 3. H/t TruePundit which broke this story in September 2017.
The media and the Democratic Party obsession with the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory originates from events of April-June 2016. The media operations by the Democratic Party and the media echo-chamber have distorted not only the information about the relevant events, but even the background political picture of April 2016. Then, the Democrats and Hillary were the natural preference for Putin because of their traditionally softer stance on foreign policy. Specific policies of Hillary and Obama were especially beneficial for Russia: Obama’s promise to Medvedev to be more accommodating toward Russia after the 2012 elections, Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, the common cause against fracking and pipelines in the U.S., etc. Continue reading Origin of Operation “Crossfire Hurricane”
GFT censors not only conservatives, but other dissidents from the EU left and anti-Trump narratives, as well as their own adversaries.
Twitter subjected to Quality Filter Discrimination (QFD shadowban) not only expected targets, such as @cernovich, but also Trump Republicans, a walking away liberal Brandon Straka (@usminority), and even Adam Carter (@with_integrity). Adam Carter is one of the leading researchers who refuted Hillary’s conspiracy theory that Russia had been behind the leaks of the 2016 election campaign. This conspiracy theory has been built on false claims by CrowdStrike, in which Google is a major investor. The QFD shadowbans were observed on Twitter from July 23 to 24. Continue reading Censorship by GOOG,FB, TWTR is Alive and Well
Since the misattribution of a suspected breach into the DNC network in early 2016 to Russia, CrowdStrike has been boosted by:
Today, that creates an impression that CrowdStrike is a respectable entity. But when it was invited by the DNC to take care of a suspected breach in 2016, it could not be mistaken for one. CrowdStrike was a four year old upstart hardly noticeable in the crowded market for cyber-security products and services of the kind it provided. The weakness of its product could not be compensated by its excellent PR, but strong ties to Obama’s FBI helped.
In 2016, CrowdStrike wasn’t even in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the Endpoint Continue reading CrowdStrike: Crooked, Shrill, Unashamed
Robert Mueller has multiple conflicts of interest stemming from his relationships with James Comey and from him being a Democrat partisan. Here, I show two other conflicts of interest, a disclosed and an undisclosed one. Each of them is sufficient to terminate him.
In February 2018, Robert Mueller made a ridiculous indictment of Russian citizens and corporations in Russia for Facebook posts intended to sow division and interfere with the 2016 elections (USA v. Internet Research Agency et al). The IRA paid Facebook and entered posts into its database. Facebook received money from the indicted and non-indicted foreign persons, selected recipients and shown them those posts. Facebook is the only entity that can be held accountable for the alleged misconduct. Why didn’t he indict, or, at least, investigate Facebook as a possible co-conspirator, accessory, or enabler? A hint: Facebook was one of Mueller’s clients in the Wilmer-Hale law firm, as he disclosed when he accepted an appointment as a special counsel. Robert Mueller was making about $3.5M a year by representing Facebook, Apple, Intel, etc. Robert Mueller also holds a small investment in Facebook according to the same disclosure.
07-17-28 Update: Shawn Henry serves as a consultant to NBC News.
Continuing Dangerous Pseudo-Science in Cyber Security, just published in WUWT. All major news organizations except for Breitbart and CNBC run ads by CrowdStrike, the Mueller-linked cyber-security firm that has incorrectly attributed the 2016 DNC leaks to the Russian government.
In 2012-2016, CrowdStrike became famous for its audacious and unsupported attributions of computer network breaches and data leaks to foreign state actors. CrowdStrike incorrectly attributed the 2016 DNC data leaks to Russia, and possibly participated in destroying actual evidence of the outside intrusion or internal leak. Later investigations and assessments relied entirely on the data, which was provided by CrowdStrike. Continue reading CrowdStrike and MSM: Pay for Ads, Get Fawning Articles Free
Update. A Google team, working under SVP Urs Hölzle of WWF, refused to implement a feature improving Google Cloud security necessary to bid on military contracts (according to Bloomberg). Earlier, Google announced it would not work with the US military on Artificial Intelligence projects. But this feature is not related to AI. Thus, Google refuses to aid the US military at all. Meanwhile, Google services (including Google Maps and Google AI) are available to terrorist organizations and hostile armed forces worldwide. In 2013, Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt visited North Korea where he aided the North Korean military. Continue reading Google Aided North Korean Military, Spurns Pentagon
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. Continue reading Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco, plus …
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?
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
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
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”
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
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
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
“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

A Google search for Holocaust happened (and also for did Holocaust happen) returns the Wikipedia article Holocaust denial. This article entices readers to doubt the Holocaust and provides helpful reference information to Holocaust deniers. It is almost a dissertation in Holocaust denial that spreads over 45 pages showcasing multiple Holocaust denial theories while generously linking the profiles and books of many deniers.
To be clear, the Wikipedia’s Holocaust denial article (WHDA) does not explicitly deny that the Holocaust happened. It even criticizes Holocaust deniers and argues with them, but does that in such a way as to cast a strong doubt about the Holocaust. Continue reading Google is Still in the Holocaust Denial Business
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
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: An Inconvenient Deception: How Al Gore Distorts Climate Science and Energy Policy.
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.
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:
“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
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
Hiring a lukewarmer Bret Stephens by The NY Times to cover the climate debate is too little, too late. But he referred to an article by Andrew Revkin who had been a regular NYT climate alarmist. In this article My Climate Change, published in a small website issues.org more than a year ago, Revkin admitted to the alarmism, organized pressure, and more.
The main quotes:
“I saw a widening gap between what scientists had been learning about global warming and what advocates were claiming as they pushed ever harder to pass climate legislation or strengthen the faltering 1992 climate change treaty.”
“In 2006, I was part of a team of reporters at The Times that undertook a multi-year series called “The Energy Challenge” (nytimes.com/energychallenge), examining what it would take to deeply cut reliance on coal, oil, and gas, and move to climate-friendly technologies. The deeper we dug, the more we ran into enormous disconnects between the data and the claims. It was very clear that any transition to clean energy would be neither simple nor quick—and it wasn’t only for lack of political will.”
In the article, Revkin did not apologize and did not stop blaming the “fossil fuels” but revealed more about the corruption of journalism. Continue reading Andrew Revkin of NYT Admitted Alarmism
Listed below are 15 lies in this NYT article . This is after the article was corrected on March 4, 2017, two days after it was originally published.
The article’s title is: “Top Trump Advisers Are Split on Paris Agreement on Climate Change”
Lie #1. Trump advisors are not split on the Paris agreement. The U.S. is not a part of the Paris agreement because this agreement has not been ratified by the Senate. All parties of the Paris agreement knew that Obama’s signature did not bind the U.S. Whether the Trump administration repudiates or just ignores that agreement is hairsplitting. Besides, having different opinions is normal. Only Obama’s administration was a single-opinion government. Next: Continue reading How many Lies can one New York Times Article Contain?
Website medsocietiesforclimatehealth.org, owned by a previously unknown group called the Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health (“MedSocCon”), published a number of irresponsible and misinforming posters, statements, “reports,” and other materials. These materials teach doctors that certain illnesses are caused or aggravated by “climate change” and/or “global warming,” which are, according to the same materials, caused by combustion of fossil fuels. Posters and talking points for communication with patients tell the patients to “vote for elected leaders that will act to cut climate pollution.” These materials also instruct doctors to give wrong advice to their patients, both adults and children. For example, a poster for children speaks directly to kids (over the heads of their parents) and tells them to bike to school. Dangers and high fatality rates of biking compared with driving are ignored. A “Heart Health” poster advises heart patients to replace their car trips with biking and walking. Continue reading Climatist Consortium Against Human Health
Short recap for the FSM viewers and readers:
The so-called “climate science” is completely upside down. The anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide (CO2) is beneficial for humans and nature. Approximately 15% of the world’s agricultural production is due to the elevated amount of CO2 in the air (see reference ). The small and slow warming, which is expected from CO2 release, is also beneficial for humans and nature. (There was steep warming probably due to solar activity increase in the 80’s and 90’s but no warming in the last 19 years.) The claims that “climate change” is to blame for all the world’s disasters are nothing but myths. I cannot go into details in this short post, but the science matters were mostly settled in the 1983 Nierenberg Report with the most un-alarming conclusions. After that, the genuine scientific research and observations suggested that there’s even less concern to be had about potential harm and actually more benefits. For example, it was found that increase of CO2 concentration in the air not only enhances plant growth but decreases plant water demand . The politics of climate alarmism (conceived by the United Nations politicians) gave birth to the perverted “climate science,” not other way around. Continue reading “Climate Science” is Upside Down (recap)
Darwall, Rupert. The Age of Global Warming: A History , 2014. Selected quotes (emphasis is mine):
“In 1966, [Barbara] Ward gave a lecture, Space Ship Earth, in which she argued that mankind’s survival depended on developing a government of the world. The longevity of China’s government, Mao being the latest dynasty, demonstrated that world government was possible. If two thousand years of rule can work for twenty-five per cent of the world’s population, ‘we can hardly argue that the task of government becomes a priori impossible simply because the remaining three-quarters are added’, Ward argued.” (Kindle Locations 1744-1748)
Yes, they used to honestly say world government, rather than evasive global governance. And they wanted to create it by annexing the rest of the world to Mao’s China. Continue reading Rupert Darwall, The Age of Global Warming
01/24/2017: Correction to the CAG at War with the USA essay: the first batch of the incriminating CRU emails was released in 2009. Climategate 2.0 was the release of the second batch in 2011. The enemies of America became emboldened after Obama re-election in 2012. The Climate Alarmism Governance started its undeclared war at some time in 2010-2013. End of Correction.
An example of the centralized propagation of the Climate Alarmism Governance (CAG) resolutions is an article, published on MediaMatters, December 31, 2015: Continue reading CAG, CAN, MediaMatters, UCS …
Today, the 14th of November, would be the 108th birthday of Joseph McCarthy – a great man, who sacrificed everything he had in a fight against foreign enemies and their domestic agents. His image and deeds have been maligned to such an extent that even conservatives use the word McCarthyism as a term of abuse.
Many readers might have been taught lies about McCarthy in school. Here are the facts. Continue reading Joseph McCarthy
I have filed a lawsuit against Climate Action Network, a German corporation headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, along with 39 other corporations (most of them putatively non-profit) and several “John and Jane Does” who will be identified later. The complaint alleges that all the defendants violated The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”, 18 U.S.C. § 1961-1968) by participating in the Climate Alarmism Enterprise. Specifically, it alleges a pattern of racketeering activity, including multiple counts of:
Tampering with witnesses

Charles David Keeling (1928-2005) became famous for setting up a worldwide network of CO2 measurement stations that demonstrated annual increases of CO2 in the air. The iconic Keeling curve, representing CO2 concentrations since 1958, is Exhibit One in every climate-related presentation and one of the very few accurate and reliable datasets in climatology. Ralph Keeling, his son, is continuing his work as CO2 Program Director in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD. Continue reading Keeling Was Defunded for Discovering Higher Primary Production
As U.S. senator and later as vice president, Al Gore successfully imposed climate alarmism on scientific institutions and suppressed dissent. But, he had few failures and only some of them became publicly known. This book chapter by Professor Fred Singer tells about one of them, when Al Gore targeted him personally. Excerpts from it follow. Links in the excerpts are mine. Continue reading Prof. Fred Singer on Suppression of Science by Al Gore
Richard Lindzen, Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Originally published on November 29, 2008; revised on September 21, 2012. In this article Richard Lindzen (a member of the National Academy of Sciences and seven other scientific societies and academies), lifts the veil on the internal workings of American scientific institutions to show their capture by climate alarmism prior to 2008, and he mentions some individual culprits by name. Examples (emphasis and links are mine throughout the article):
