2018-12-28 update: On the Thanksgiving Day, the Wikipedia page for Donald Trump was intermittently showing a penis in place of the President’s photo. Apple Siri displayed this picture when asked about the age of Donald Trump. Contrary to the MSM reports, that was neither a bug nor vandalism. This is how Wikipedia works. Leftist Wikipedia editors were permitted to switch the pictures. Apple, Google, and Facebook use Wikipedia as the main source of knowledge out of financial, economic, and anti-competitive motives. Wikipedia is choke full of such “mistakes.”
Pretty much everything people think they know about Wikipedia they heard from Wikipedia itself. Wikipedia has become a cesspool of information that cannot be trusted as facts. Amazingly, Wikipedia functions as a combination of tyranny, chaos, and opacity. Anybody can write anything in it (chaos) as long as what’s written is in harmony with the far-left politics of its San Francisco management (tyranny). But even in totalitarian countries the citizens know their rulers. The portraits of Stalin and Mao hung in every public place of the countries they ruled. This isn’t so in Wikipedia. The highest Wikipedia hierarchs (Stewards and ArbCom members) are totally anonymous and hidden behind usernames like Ks0stm. Wikipedia belongs to the Wikimedia Foundation. The Wikimedia Foundation’s Board currently consists of eight members (1). At least one of them (María Sefidari Huici, Spain) was appointed in open violation of the publicly posted bylaws. The only publicly known person on the board is Jimmy Wales, the founder. Other respected directors resigned or were pushed out years ago. Only two among the seven board members are American citizens. According to Wikipedia, it holds elections of its functionaries and power brokers but the election process is under control of a few (or even one) persons. These kingmakers are also anonymous. Most of the popularity and income (in small donations) is derived by Wikipedia’s relations with Google, which gives Wikipedia abnormally high prominence in its organic search results. However, the widely held opinion that Wikipedia is reliable on non-controversial subjects is wrong because Wikipedia regularly presents leftist opinions as non-controversial facts, making it hard to detect that a subject is in fact controversial.

Partial (i.e., especially hard to detect) shadowbanning of individuals dissenting from the Democrat narrative or disillusioned with the Democratic party for various and unrelated reasons is rampant on Twitter. Examples from early September 4, 2018:
Adam Carter, a cyber-security researcher opposing the dominant conspiracy theory of Russian hacking of the DNC:

Google AdWords doesn’t allow bidding on certain words and phrase, except if an exception is requested and granted. Guess which word was disallowed among the following:
Fentanyl, improvised explosive device, IED, car bomb, jihad, rifle, RPG-7?
Rifle was disallowed, even in the phrase national rifle association! All other keywords above were allowed and approved.
See the screenshots in Google-Adwords-rifle-vs-fentany.pdf
Maria Butina is totally innocent.
There was no Russian interference in the 2016 election (see the Summary of the Russian Interference Hoax and the DNC leaks related materials on my website) except for RT propaganda aiding Democrats.
Butina has been prosecuted by Obama holdovers and accused of spying without any evidence, only because she met Trump once or twice and shares the views of the National Rifle Association (NRA). She has been in prison since July, and pleaded guilty under duress. Continue reading Maria Butina is an Innocent Victim of the Rigged Witch Hunt
The Honest Search is upgraded. It includes hundreds of trustworthy websites that have been suppressed or hidden by Google: (Breitbart, American Thinker, Daily Caller, Townhall, PJMedia, FreeBeacon, FrontPageMag, WUWT etc.), mainstream moderate-conservative publications (Foxnews, Forbes etc.), as well as specialized sites and blogs, related to the theme of this website.
The Honest Search is not a Google replacement, but a unique and indispensable tool for people of all political persuasions, who want to learn about Continue reading Honest Search Engine!
Few articles caught my eye:
15 Things We Learned From the Tech Giants at the Senate Hearings
The Atlantic, Nov 2, 2017
“Most Russian advertising on Facebook was used to build up pages, which then distributed their content “organically.”
The $100,000 of advertising that has been a big focus of Congressional interest was used primarily to build audiences for a variety of Russian-linked pages. In other words, they paid to buy likes and build the distribution channels through which they would pump disinformation.” Continue reading Even The Atlantic Questioned Loyalty of Big Tech
Where I voted (Austin TX), the voting machines’ user interface is very counter-intuitive and inconvenient for older people. A dial for selecting checkboxes and buttons Back and Forward are intuitive for the Millenials, but not for senior citizens. That probably caused many of them to make mistakes, with the net effect negative to Republicans.
In response to repeal of the Obamanet by the new FCC, Democratic Attorneys General and other opponents of freedom sued FCC and the United States of America. I filed an intervention, siding with FCC and the United States of America. Continue reading My Brief in the Obamanet Repeal Lawsuit
This is what foreign election interference looks like:
This is today’s opinion page of The Guardian. Like almost all foreign election interference, it attacks Republicans, sows internal division, and benefits Democrats. Note the inauthentic use of the .com domain, misleading people to believe that this British newspaper is an American one. This happens daily.
The social media component of the alleged “Russian activities in the 2016 elections” was non-existent. The IRA, a.k.a. the “troll farm” in Russia, allegedly bought ads for about $100k; this is chump change and not even worthy of a government operation. Most of it has been spent on Facebook, and most ads ran AFTER the 2016 elections. Continue reading Imaginary Social Media Component of Imaginary Russian Meddling
“On February 4th, NBC News ran a story claiming that if you bring your mobile phone or laptop to the Sochi Olympics, it’ll immediately be hacked the moment you turn it on. The story was fabricated. The technical details relate to going to the Olympics in cyberspace (visiting websites), not going to there in person and using their local WiFi.”
“By the way, the easy way to figure out where journalists commit fraud is by watching for ‘passive voice’. Journalists normally avoid passive voice, preferring stronger language. But, when they need to hide things, they passive voice to cover up details.”
This advice seems obsolete now. Just watch their lips. When the lips are moving, the MSM journalist is lying.
The “assessment” that the Russian government hacked the DNC and leaked its emails was wrong. It’s almost impossible to attribute a network breach to a sophisticated hackers group.
When #CrowdStrike and FireEye started making the fraudulent attribution on cyber security events, many other companies followed. The Obama regime has corrupted and dumbed down the DHS, DNI, and FBI. They bought this fraud, and then added some.
In 2016, Hillary and the DNC were deceived by CrowdStrike into believing that Russia was behind the leaks of their emails that shouldn’t have been written in the first place. Together with Obama they forced that deception on the FBI and intelligence. Then they blamed Russia for their election defeat!
Most successful network security breaches are conducted by criminal hackers, many of whom are based or originate from Russia and Eastern Europe. Most unsuccessful attempts are conducted by amateurs. Organizations should protect their networks, rather than blame nation states.
Read Jeffrey Carr, FBI/DHS Joint Analysis Report: A Fatally Flawed Effort or Robert Graham, Dear Obama, From Infosec – both are (or were) anti-Trump.
The corrupt academy developed a whole cottage industry devoted to conspiracy theories about Russian influence on elections in the U.S. and worldwide.
For example, the Oxford Internet Institute describes itself as, “A multidisciplinary research and teaching department of the University of Oxford, dedicated to the social science of the Internet,” in other words, a leftist mouthpiece devoted to internet-related misinformation and Russophobia. This outfit is a go-to for the fake news media when it needs academic support for its political campaigns. For example, the Wired interviewed an OII psychologist Przybylski in article intended to downplay concerns about the negative influence of some tech on human health and to smack down Dr. Jean Twenge, one of the top researchers in this field.

The terminal phase of the Trump Derangement Syndrom – billionaire Demonrat and climate alarmist Tom Steyer, calls for a NUCLEAR WAR to remove Trump:
“So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.“
“Steyer, who made his fortune as a hedge-fund manager, built the Need to Impeach campaign as an offshoot of his group NextGen America, best known for climate advocacy.”

July 5, 2018 – “You know you are over the target when the flak is heaviest.”

The survey asked about social media impacts on adolescents’ health. The surveyed audience was more informed on the subject than the average population. 62% of respondents think that social media is very harmful for adolescents. 94% of the respondents think that social media is harmful (very harmful or slightly harmful).

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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.

Canadian Government Investigates ‘Climate Denial’ (Toronto Sun, 2017-09-13):
The complaint was filed by Ecojustice on behalf of six “prominent” Canadians, including former Ontario NDP leader and UN ambassador Stephen Lewis. It accused three groups, Friends of Science, the International Climate Science Coalition, and the Heartland Institute of making false and misleading claims about climate change, including that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide, and that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Trump ‘a moron.’ Trump didn’t fire him but offered to compare their IQs and stated he would come out on top.
The fakestream media is all over this exchange, treating it as a real scandal. After eight years of the Obama regime the FSM is surprised that there are heated political debates within the cabinet! And that the president’s IQ is not taboo!
Donald Trump is doing what he had promised – Making America Great Again – even by his reaction to impolite outbursts of his close aides.
