Julian Assange Newsweek Article From 2014

Julian Assange Newsweek Article From 2014 — It pleases us to find journalism committed where it is not expected so this extract from Julian Assange’s book When Google Met WikiLeaks is a pleasure as it was published by the usually unreliable Newsweek on Oct. 23, 2014.

Julian Assange Newsweek Article From 2014

The extract — which can also be found on Wikileaks — notes that Google is intrinsically part of the globalist “deep state” and is actually pretty evil.

For what it’s worth, we think Assange is a good guy/white hat/hero without whom the vile Hillary Clinton would be our president.

Assange can’t be a traitor to America as he is not an American. For any other crimes he may have committed, seven years incarceration in an Ecuadorian embassy is more than sufficient punishment.

Goolag Archipelago For Patrick Moore

Goolag Archipelago For Patrick Moore — Patrick Moore’s environmentalist creds are beyond dispute.

Moore, a Canadian with a Ph.d in forestry, was with Greenpeace at the start. He was president of Greenpeace Foundation in the late 1970s and largely responsible for reorganizing it as Greenpeace International during a time of controversy, crisis and debt.

He is considered one of the founders of the group.

Or had been anyway.

On March 2, Moore blistered “The New Green Deal” plan broached by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the feckless and extremely stupid new congresswoman from New York’s 14th District, calling her a “pompous little twit” and pointing out her bizarre fantasy would bring about “mass death”.

He doubled down a week or so later on Fox & Friends adding that “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.”

This quote was tweeted by President Trump on March 12.

Anyway, Moore noticed on March 16 that his photo which had long appeared in Google searches for”Who are the founders of Greenpeace” had been removed.

It had been there two days earlier.

Google’s action was something Moore had expected as he had saved screenshots, which are included below.

Moore did not seem particularly upset with the loss of credit but was alarmed at the implications of “Tech Tyranny.”

As all who love freedom should be.

The wannabe kings and queens of Silicon Valley and Wall Street have no problem disappearing someone who is an impediment to their vision of a harshly regulated progressive paradise.

We suspect they’d have no problem forcing them from their job, stealing their home and even stealing their life if they should feel they could get away with it.

Google is a treasonous enemy. It should be broken up — at the least — as Standard Oil was in 1911. There is no reason for the largest search engine, the largest internet video service (YouTube),the largest mobile operating system (Android) and the most used browser (Chrome) to be under the same roof.

If you don’t feel like waiting for the law, here are some steps you can take yourself.

For Millennials who might miss the allusion in the headline it is to The Gulag Archipelago by  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn that describes the horrors that existed in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Note the word “socialist”.

Yes children, “the power of the collective through community” means slavery and misery for you and those you care about.

That means the Washington Post and CNN cannot keep you from pointing out their falsehoods. It means Facebook and Twitter can’t stop you from responding. It even means Wikipedia can’t stop you from correcting their articles.

Dissenter is also a great news feed and information source.

Fastest Growing Social Media Platform Is Gab

Gab.com — a social media alternative to Facebook and Twitter — has published the below statement regarding its commitment to free speech and noting that now the fastest growing social media platform in the world. It’s worth posting here considering the revelations of Orwellian group-think coming out of Silicon Valley.

Gab.com operates according to one principal rule: if speech is allowed under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and our User Guidelines, it is allowed on our site. This is because, per Sir Stephen Sedley in the seminal English free speech case DPP v. Redmond-Bate, “freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having.”

We are proud to have recently met our fundraising goal of $1.07m raised directly from The People. We have made considerable progress this month making Gab the home of free speech, free association, and the free market online. This includes an update to our mute system that gives more control to individual users to shape their own experience. Unfortunately we still have not been able to get a new payment processor, although we are accepting checks to our PO Box and will be integrating bitcoin as a payment option shortly.

On a daily basis, our company uses the protection afforded by the First Amendment, federal data privacy law, and American global hegemony to provide a utility for users all over the world, wheresoever they might be, to publish their innermost thoughts and engage in open dialogue without fear of recrimination from unfriendly and repressive governments. Put another way, we structure our affairs to afford all our users the full measure of due process rights available in the United States.

As a result, Gab is now the fastest-growing social media platform in the world. We have acquired over 800,000 users and new Gabbers are joining the site at a rate of nearly 100,000 a month from across the planet. Gab has over 10.6 million visits a month and is quickly becoming a home for those who wish to think, speak, and express themselves freely.

One unintended consequence of our moderation policy is that Gab has attracted, shall we say, a colorful user base. Most if not all of the team, from the CEO down to our external contractors and service providers, can find an enormous amount of content on the site which we each find morally or politically objectionable, even personally hateful.

However, we understand that adopting a moderation policy that mirrors the First Amendment will result in users of our site expressing views with which we disagree, including “the thought that we hate.” See Matal v. Tam, 582 U.S. ___ (2017). We do not, unlike virtually every other social media company in existence, think we have any right to try to change what our users think.

The mainstream media strongly implies that Gab’s provisioning of a forum for this speech runs the risk of encouraging expression “(escalating) from online speech to real-world action.” We dissent. Hateful speech may be found on every platform with millions of users, including Twitter and Facebook; Gab is not alone in this regard.

Furthermore, we actively monitor the site for speech that crosses the line from the merely outrageous into the truly threatening or unlawful. Where criminal activity is brought to our attention, we act swiftly to curtail it and, where possible, cooperate with law enforcement to ensure our users’ safety – real, physical, safety, not wishy-washy millennial “safe space” safety – is secured.

When one creates a space where controversial speech is permitted, controversial speech should be expected. This is only news for anyone who doesn’t understand what “free speech” actually means. And today, Gab stands as the largest social network in the world that willing to take the heat involved in standing by this oldest and most classically liberal principle of liberal democracy.

Much has been made recently of social media companies’ moderation policies seeking to strike balances between civility and liberty. Civility-oriented moderation strategies are referred to as the “European tradition” and liberty-oriented strategies are referred to as the “American tradition.”

We follow the American tradition to the letter. We will continue to do so as long as the company exists.

Twitter Hypocritical H8 Site

Twitter Hypocritical H8 Site — We published a post Nov. 5 celebrating the return to the internet of free-speech defender Gab.

Twitter Hypocritical H8 Site
A post Robert Bowers made on Gab.com

Gab, a Twitter alternative, was kicked off the web by its hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 for having allowed Robert Bowers to post. Bowers murdered 11 persons two days before during Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. He also wounded seven others, including four police officers.

Anyway outrage ensued; Gab was removed and virtue was signaled.

Which brings us to the latest regarding Twitter. Saudi prince and billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal was a major investor in Twitter. In 2015, he owned 34.9 million shares in it which put him ahead of CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey.

Alwaleed was arrested in the Kingdom on Nov. 4, 2017 and held for three months with freedom coming as part of a financial deal with the higher ups in the Saudi family.

What was the deal? Did it involve something with Twitter? Did it involve something leading to the Oct. 2 death at the Saudi embassy in Turkey of his friend journalist Jamal Kashoggi?

Soon after Kashoggi’s brutal death it was revealed that Saudi Arabia has created a massive Twitter “troll army” to sway public opinion especially in the Mideast.

And today (Nov. 7) it was reported that journalist Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was tortured to death in a Saudi jail for criticizing the ruling family via a secret Twitter account. How did the tyrants learn of the account? Via spies at Twitter’s regional headquarter in Dubai.

How many Saudi spies have infiltrated Twitter? How much do they interfere with our elections? Sounds like a dangerous H8 site to us. Perhaps Twitter should be banned from the web.

That last sentence was sarcasm but it illustrates the poison of political correctness and the hypocrisy of virtue-signaling double standards.

GAB Back Online, Free Speech Wins

GAB Back Online, Free Speech Wins — GAB has returned.

The free speech social networking alternative to Twitter was kicked off the web by hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 after it was revealed that Pittsburgh synagogue massacre suspect Robert Bowers was a poster on the site.

An example of Bowers’ postings is to the right.

The Oct. 27 massacre left 11 dead and seven wounded, including four police officers.

Anyway, outrage occurred and GAB got blamed for inspiring the evil.

Cynics might say it was just an attempt by Silicon Valley powerbrokers to maintain an hegemony on the flow of information and squelch a potential competitor while it was still in the cradle.  It is not as though Twitter never served as a conduit of hate, after all.

Or Facebook, for that matter.

Anyway GAB is back. It’s easy to block the H8ers –or confront them if that is your wish.

We encourage all to join it. GAB Back Online, Free Speech Wins

To the right is  the statement GAB ran last week while it social networking part was offline.  Click to enlarge.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy

Prodigy And Sears Ironic Bankruptcy
It’s the Willis Tower now.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy — Sears, once the world’s largest retailer with the world’s tallest building, filed for bankruptcy today, Oct. 15, and is about to disappear.

Some are crediting Amazon and it’s use of mail order and the internet. The irony is that Sears became the Goliath of its day through mail order and catalogs, and that Sears through it’s involvement with the the online service Prodigy was an pioneer in the internet and e-commerce.

LifeLog William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 8-17-18

The Pentagon had an ambitious plan to build a database tracking a person’s entire existence. It was called LifeLog. The idea was to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does; the phone calls he made, the emails he sent, the movies he watched and the music he liked. Civil libertarians found out about it, however, and raised a fuss.

So on Feb. 4, 2004, it was announced that the intrusive project was being cancelled.

Entirely coincidentally we are sure, that was the date Facebook was launched.

Write In C Let It Be Internet History

Write In C Let It Be Internet History — This is the sort of thing that you’d see on Usenet groups or get in your email when the internet was brand new.

For your convenience we will publish below but to get the full effect visit the Tripod built web page which if you notice hasn’t been updated since 1997.

When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
“Write in C.”

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers:
“Write in C.”

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
LOGO’s dead and buried,
Write in C.

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
For science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C.

If you’ve just spent nearly 30 hours,
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
BASIC’s not the answer.
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
Pascal won’t quite cut it.
Write in C.
