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
2018-10-03 update: I have just noticed that the declassified ICA text was published only a few hours before the joint session of Congress that certified Trump as the next president. James Clapper spent the previous day falsely alleging that the Assessment had been done by the U.S. Intelligence Community, pushed an exaggerated version of its conclusions, and leaked parts of it to the media. In his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Clapper made repeated assaults on the president-elect. When referring to Trump’s sober reaction to the alleged assessment, Clapper uttered the following: “I’ve received many expressions of concern from foreign counterparts of what has been interpreted as disparagement of the intelligence community.” The Assessment and even the published-the-next-day ICA text were still classified and hidden from the president-elect! Now that seems like a last ditch effort to prevent Trump’s inauguration. BTW, who were his ‘foreign counterparts’ and why was he so concerned about their opinions?
Attached is a review of the declassified version of the notorious Intelligence Community Assessment, published on 01/06/2017. The declassified ICA text (“the ICA text” or “the text”, referring to the public version of the alleged assessment) regurgitates the Democratic talking points and allegations that Putin ordered interference in the 2016 elections, including claims that the alleged interference was directed against electing Hillary and in favor of electing Trump as president. The latter statement was supported only by the FBI and CIA, not by the NSA. The ICA demonstrated an extreme partisan bias in favor of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. The ICA text contains no declassified information. It repeats the same allegations over and over either without evidence, or with evidence refuting them. A quarter of the text is devoted to proving the obvious: that RT is controlled or directed by the Russian government.
Massachusetts has been hit by a series of natural gas explosions. The main cause of this disaster is aging and deteriorating infrastructure, natural gas pipelines in this case. Massachusetts (and New York, California, and few other deep blue states) diverted necessary funds from maintaining and upgrading infrastructure to climate change propaganda as well as subsidies to cronies in “renewable energy” and “carbon free” financing. Massachusetts Democrats were so prejudiced against pipelines that the state elected to import LNG from Russia. Continue reading Climate Alarmism Kills
“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.
Even the New York Times admitted that Obama holdovers had committed crimes, probably including espionage, sedition, sabotage, obstruction of justice, and/or subornation of perjury in the transitional period. From the NYT March 1, 2017:
As Inauguration Day approached, Obama White House officials grew convinced that the intelligence was damning and that they needed to ensure that as many people as possible inside government could see it, even if people without security clearances could not. Some officials began asking specific questions at intelligence briefings, knowing the answers would be archived and could be easily unearthed by investigators — including the Senate Intelligence Committee, which in early January announced an inquiry into Russian efforts to influence the election.
At intelligence agencies, there was a push to process as much raw intelligence as possible into analyses, and to keep the reports at a relatively low classification level to ensure as wide a readership as possible across the government — and, in some cases, among European allies. Continue reading Crimes of DNC Loyalists in DOJ and Intelligence
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.Continue reading Beware of “Internet Studies”
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.”
Scott Pruitt was hated because he was effective. He is as straight as Hillary is crooked.
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.
Google has interfered in the US Senate Elections on behalf of democrat Doug Jones, possibly on demand from a European government or political party. I know Google does such things because some of my AdWords messages were banned by Google in the U.S. after I had expanded targeting to the EU.
I know only a small part of this interference: on December 4, Google banned my paid message running on Google Adwords sites in Alabama. Below are the renderings of the message by Google Adwords.
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
This is a notice that you provide ad revenue to an organization or group that seems to attempt a violent and armed overthrow of the government, and recruits, indoctrinates, and trains mentally ill persons to carry it out. Similar activity might have been behind the murder attempt against Steve Scalise and other Republican Congressmen, committed by mentally ill James Hodgkinson in 2017.

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
Bruce Gilley of Portland State University (image above) published an article titled “The Case for Colonialism” in the decidedly anti-Colonial journal Third World Quarterly (home of the [despicable] Edward Said Award [and having notorious Noam Chomsky as a co-editor]).
In the Third World Quarterly piece, Gilley argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, Western colonialism was “as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found.” Continue reading Stand with Dr. Bruce Gilley!
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook in an interview: “I feel fundamentally uncomfortable sitting here in California at an office, making content policy decisions for people around the world.”
Mark – if you feel uncomfortable doing that to us, imagine how your victims feel! Imagine what people from other countries think about this country because of your business. Well, you don’t need to strain your imagination. You listened to their governments and promised to accommodate them as the Obama regime used to do — at the expense of Americans. But this is not the topic of this post. Continue reading Facebook CEO is “uncomfortable” Being a World Censor!
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
Fake News Networks announced that Putin had blamed supposed “Russian election interference” on Jews. A CNN headline shouted — Putin: Maybe Jews or minorities behind US election interference (1). But this is a lie. Unfortunately, many Jewish organizations have taken the bait.
In the interview with NBC, Putin refused even to contemplate the proposition that the Russian government was behind the alleged interference. Speaking of the trolls on social media, Putin said (2):
“So what if they’re Russians?” Putin said of the people named in last month’s indictment. “There are 146 million Russians. So what? … I don’t care. I couldn’t care less. … They do not represent the interests of the Russian state.” Continue reading Fake News about Putin and Jews
The Californian government might be handling the current flu epidemic just like it handled the wildfires – incompetently, indifferently, and with an eye towards political gain. Somebody needs to watch it.
Bloomberg, February 9, 2018: Flu Is Causing 1 in 10 American Deaths and Climbing:
“Along with the pneumonia it spawns, this year’s epidemic may be killing 4,000 people every week.
The amount of influenza ravaging the U.S. this year rivals levels normally seen when an altogether new virus emerges, decimating a vulnerable population that hasn’t had a chance to develop any defenses. It’s an unexpected phenomenon that public health experts are still trying to decode. The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported now are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009 …”
Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft (GFTM) and other companies that started as platforms or service providers and became content vendors are American companies subject to all U.S laws. Their directors and executives are American citizens and residents, and owe loyalty to the U.S. That stands true even if they derive most of their income from abroad. Continue reading US Tech Companies Must Remain Loyal
My report documenting censorship of climate realists (climate skeptics) by Google, Microsoft LinkedIn, Twitter, and Reddit in paid delivery (ads) is published in WUWT.
With unbelievable audacity, a group of 21 individuals declared themselves “the pioneers and technologists who created and now operate the Internet” in a foolish letter to senators and representatives (1), and protested the repeal of Obamanet. The fake news media has not contested their claims (this CNBC article is an example), and even used their letter as an argument against the Obamanet repeal.
These individuals, some of whom would not recognize an IP address, are like Baron Munchausen, Continue reading 21 Self-Proclaimed Internet Creators Join Al Gore!
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.
The Paris Accord anniversary “summit”: not only Donald Trump, but even Angela Merkel does not attend!
The Associated Press (AP) reports that, “Macron’s climate summit in Paris finds new money” (1). I suspect some of this “new money” was found in our pension funds, state and city treasuries, and publicly traded corporations.
Trustees, directors, and officers of the vulnerable funds and corporations are advised of their fiduciary duty to the employees, retirees, and stockholders. That means that not a penny from their respective funds should be lost to the “climate finance.”
There is a list comprising old offenders, such as CalPERS, CalSTRS, treasuries, and pension funds in a number of blue states.
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
A Washington Post reporter explained why he had written fake news in The Washington Post: he had just repeated a fake news from CNN! Then he went on about how influential his article was: “And the instant news cycle got to work. My article was plastered across Google News. … Where I had cited CNN, other news outlets cited me.”
In the end, the reporter refused to apologize to anybody but one reader on Twitter. Fake-stream media ain’t apologize to nobody!
CNN, on its part, did place a “correction note” in the article: “A similar banner was hung in another Polish city in 2015, according to local reports, but not at Saturday’s march [a large march on 11/11/2017 in Warshaw]”. Unnecessary to say, most people who had read the article did not see this correction note. Also, CNN acknowledged it had gotten the main factual allegation of the article wrong, but the conclusions remained the same. Facts be damned! Continue reading Notebook 2017 Q4
Case #13482. Fake debunking of the Oregon Petition.
The Oregon Petition (1998) against climate alarmism has been signed by 17,000+ qualified scientists. The same petition, circulated in 2007, have been signed by 31,000+ qualified scientists and other professionals. This is truth.
Climate alarmists, aided and abetted by non-critical media first, and by fake fact-checkers (like Snopes) and Google later, have spread and continue spreading various falsehoods about the Petition. The most sensational lie was that the Petition signers have not been verified, and included Spice Girls and other fictitious characters. This is not true, as explained in the email from Dr. Arthur Robinson. How could such lie receive so wide circulation? Continue reading Fake “Debunking” of Oregon Petition
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.
Renowned physicist and mathematician Professor Freeman Dyson is a liberal. Nevertheless, he rejects climate alarmism and alleged “scientific consensus” that increase in the air CO2 concentration from burning fossil fuels and other human activities is harmful, or causes dangerous global warming. But he has found and published a solution to this non-problem about ten years ago. The solution is accumulating extra CO2 in the top soil. Those who considered increase of CO2 in the atmosphere to be a problem had plenty of time to discuss, test, and start implementing his proposal. See Edge.org, August 9, 2007 (9,800 words).
