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.

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).

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.

Today is November 2, 2017. I googled november 4th antifa and Google predictably returned links to the friends of antifa. The first result was from the Washington Post, which has published a full page ad for the RefuseFascism.org, promoting the November 4th riots. The second result was a surprise: Snopes, a fake fact checker, calling FALSE the opinion that “‘Antifa’ is planning a Civil War”. Continue reading Google Search Fact-checks the Future
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.
In the battle for fake net neutrality, there are also non-political motives behind this disguised attempt to take away our freedom. These ideas were best expressed by George Takei, an actor and activist, in a 2014 interview with WaPo that touched on the subject of net neutrality (2):
“Brian Fung, WaPo: Would you be open to paying a toll — or would AARP be open to paying a toll — to Internet providers to reach your audience?
George Takei: Well, this audience was built not by them, but by our efforts, by our creativity. And once we have that audience built, they want to charge us for it? … a policy has to be created to deal with the fact that access to large numbers of people was built by us, using platform.”
Apparently, some in Hollywood regard us as property they have built and own. They want the government to protect their “ownership rights.” Continue reading We Pay ISPs to Use the Internet, NOT to be Used or “Reached”
“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.
In the US, a lie told a thousand times, a million times, even a Googol times, remains a LIE.
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.”
25 Years of Government Enabled Leftist Oppression, Persecution and Cooptation of the Productive Businesses have Paralyzed Conservative Thought and Speech – an unexpected conclusion of a new article published on this website. No, this persecution did not stop under the George W. Bush administration.
