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.

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.

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.
“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.
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.
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.

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.

Google unfairly promotes climate alarmist websites and punishes climate realist ones. The table shows that more external domains link to wattsupwiththat.com than to any of the four “Google darlings,” that make the first page in the results for ‘climate change’ (no quotes) search.

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.

Charlie Munger (Warren Buffet’s #2) on Al Gore: “not very smart,” “an idiot,” “obsessed with global warming.” Despite that, he was making hundreds of millions of dollars annually by investing in companies that (in Gore’s mind) were not emitting CO2.

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.
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?

The main point of the essay Renounce Climate Alarmism! published in WUWT is that the Trump Administration should renounce climate alarmism entirely, rather than fighting each regulation, executive order, and other visible consequences of it.
In September 2015, Amazon.com, controlled by Jeff Bezos, added to its Amazon Prime package free subscription(*) to the The Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos (1). Thus, The Washington Post officially became an integral part of Amazon. This kind of arrangement between a national newspaper and a monopoly in multiple retail segments is unprecedented.
The Washington Post is one of the most rabid fakestream media outlets. Amazon is one of The Dirty 129, having served as a “witness” in a lawsuit, filed by the corrupt Washington State Attorney General Ferguson against the Executive Order No. 13769. Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.
Even before the elections, Donald Trump hinted that Amazon was a monopoly, and later The Washington Post assigned a special reporter’s team to dig dirt on him.

The local investigation into the shooting continues, according to Dr. Roy Spencer.
Notably, the “March For Science” organizers removed from their website evidence of “financial support” to their satellite marches, either on the day of the March or immediately after it. This screenshot was taken on April 25:
The promise of “financial and legal resources” was already removed from the site on that day, and remained only in the Google snapshot.
In September 2016, WaPo published an article with the title: “Scientists published climate research under fake names. Then they were caught.” The subject of the article was one of the lesser known cases of suppression of climate dissent in formerly respectable peer-reviewed journals; suppression that’s supported by a formerly respectable media. That case clearly shows the impossibility for dissenters from climate alarmism orthodoxy to publish in scientific journals.
The Washington Post’s reaction is an expression of its contempt for free speech, which includes the use of pseudonyms. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote The Federalist Papers under the pseudonym (or the “fake name” according to WaPo) Publius. In The Federalist Papers they advocated ratification of the Constitution, seemingly another object of the WaPo contempt.
The media blackout of what looks like an act of climate terrorism, continues.
Following the ridiculous “March for Science,” at which third-rate performers and copywriters pretended to be scientists, unidentified shooters opened fire at the office of Dr. John Christy. Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer (who both work in the same building) are two of the prominent scientists who developed measurement methodology and have been maintaining the only truly global temperatures record — the satellite temperatures dataset.
Dr. Roy Spencer commented after the shooting:
“When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass.”
Ignored by the FSM, this news was reported by Breitbart, Daily Caller, Washington Times, and WUWT.
A new letter (1) from putative scientists calling for the persecution of climate dissenters is posted (2) by the Union of Concerned Scientists, and is addressed to the NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The letter is titled “Pursue ExxonMobil Investigation to the Fullest Extent of the Law,” but the word “investigation” in it stands for “punishment,” as seen from the following quote:
“We encourage you to pursue your investigation to the fullest extent of the law in order to uncover any past wrongdoing and deter future misconduct.“
