And we can now say with proof positive that we’d be much bigger but for the active discrimination of Silicon Valley megacorporations.
Searchers finding our site are up significantly. This is entirely due to the ever growing DuckDuckGo, which hit the 100 million daily search milestone last month.
Google remains 50 times bigger but we got 2.7 times the hits from DDG yesterday.
DDG appears to be using algorithms designed to let people find what they are looking for rather than filtering for political content.
Ponder that for a moment. This is obviously not just happening to us. Actually, it was this comment by Fred Donaldson that tipped us off to it. How many other websites that question the narrative are being made unaccessible? How much necessary information is the citizenry being prevented from hearing? How many lies are they being told through claims of authority?
We hear that DDG is run by leftists/progressives/whatever. So what? Their searches are honest and that’s all that counts.
If you really want to “stick it to the man” make DDG your default search engine for mobile and desktop.
If 75 million (official) Trump voters do this, a real hurt will be put on Google, and real benefits will be received by those media outlets that don’t have the seal of approval by the government/corporate establishment.
If you cannot do this simple thing don’t pretend you would have fought alongside George Washington in 1776.
Netflix Soliciting For Propaganda — We got an email (see below) that “streamers” like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Studios are seeking “TV series with a social message.”
In other words, the one-percenter tech oligarchs want propaganda designed to make you angry and afraid. They don’t want to make you happy. They don’t want to inspire you to help others. They want to make you angry and afraid.
How do you beat propagandists with this much power?
We could suggest cancelling but that won’t do much and just leave you out of touch with what the masses are getting fed.
We would instead encourage reading, especially the Bible but the great philosophers like Plato as well, along with original documents and speeches like the Constitution, Lincoln’s Second Inaugural and The Federalist Papers.
Read good histories like those by Stephen Ambrose and bad ones like those by Howard Zinn. See the difference. Know what the other side believes, why they believe it and why they are wrong.
Mental exercise is a lot like physical exercise. It starts hard but then becomes easy, and you find yourself much healthier and stronger.
We are encouraging deletion of Facebook accounts. Not just deactivation but full deletion. Cancel Facebook.
There are 80 million Trump voters. Yes, we think millions of Trump votes were flipped to Biden and Biden is an illegitimate president. Even if you insist on the 74 million figure, though, 10 million of us deleting our Facebook accounts will have an enormous impact. Don’t forget that those who want to keep in touch with you will have to seek you on the media that you use.
The fish that swims from the school is the cool one.
And make DuckDuckGo your default search engine on the desktop and mobile. Google is Goliath but Goliath was beaten.
DuckDuckGo Hits 100M Milestone — Paoli, Pa. -based search engine DuckDuckGo hit the milestone of 100 million daily searches, Jan. 16. Granted, that still a long way off of Google’s 5 billion daily searches but giants can fall.
DDG is a search engine that promises privacy and keeps it. Take a few minutes to make it your default on your mobile and desktop. Your peace of mind will thank you.
Greenwald Reveals Tech Hypocrisy, Tyranny — Check out Glenn Greenwald’s article How Silicon Valley, in a Show of Monopolistic Force, Destroyed Parleron Substack.
Vile, corporate anti-liberal — in the original, good meaning of the word — have taken over communication. Their “progressive” minions, whose reasoning skill makes a George Romero zombie look smart, shuffle along in ironic approval considering themselves “woke”.
Check out Greenwald’s article. If you can’t see it, a subscription is worthwhile.
Samizdat Cure For Google Censorship — Breitbart.com is a news website that reports unflattering things about Democrats and nice things about Donald Trump and his supporters.
Because of this it is disparaged as “right wing” and “conservative” but, unlike the Washington Post and NBC, it doesn’t make things up, and it corrects its mistakes.
It has been learned that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016, when it was a major source of accurate information about both Clinton and Trump. Note that this accurate reporting did not make Google happy.
So if you don’t want to live in a feudalistic society with wannabe queens and kings pushing you around what do you do?
Don’t be afraid, don’t be discouraged by what you hear in the media and vote Republican, in person, on Nov. 3. There are far more people who see the evil that has taken over the Democratic Party than one would think via the establishment mouthpieces.
The cure for Silicon Valley censorship is Samizdat. Samizdat is what dissidents in the Soviet Union and other nations under the communist boot did to spread the truth. Individuals reproduced censored and underground makeshift publications, often by hand, and passed the documents from reader to reader.
Spread these links yourselves via email, Facebook, Twitter and any other mainstream social media network to which you belong. Make screenshots of stories you think the censors might filter. It is harder to censor screenshots. Always be honest. Don’t be like MSNBC.
Tony Taylor Telstar Hero R.I.P. — Beloved Philadelphia Phillies icon Tony Taylor died, July 16, at age 84. While there have been articles recording his athletic achievements we missed the one noting what will put him in the history books centuries hence, namely being the first athlete to appear in a transatlantic satellite broadcast. It happened on July 23, 1962 when part of a Chicago Cubs-Phillies game was broadcast as filler before remarks by President Kennedy to inaugurate Telstar. It showed Tony flying out to right field.
TikTok Blackmail Tool — CrazyDaysandNights.net commonly known at CDAN is the most entertaining gossip site on the WWW. Granted, its claims should be taken with a large dose of salt but it was way ahead of the curve exposing Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and Kevin Spacey.
Globalist Panic That Trump Might Cut Tech Foreign Workers
By Joe Guzzardi
Time is short to the (June 22) expiration of President Trump’s Executive Order that suspended some immigration, and expansionists are pulling out all the stops. At stake is employment-based visas’ short-term future, specifically whether the White House will permit this year’s annual 85,000 allotment of foreign-born H-1B workers to enter.
A recent Forbes story written by immigration advocate Stuart Anderson claims that since the tech sector unemployment rate is low and declining – 2.8 percent in April versus 3 percent in January – the Trump administration would be remiss to include the employment-based H-1B visa as part of a suspension strategy. To make his point, Anderson selectively chose data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Population Survey that supports his perspective.
But the bigger picture that Anderson ignored is the most important one. Employment statistics vary from month to month; employers lay off U.S. tech workers, but retain cheaper imported workers. But the addition of 85,000 H-1B visa holders will represent a permanent fixture in the labor market, because the H-1B is a dual-intent visa, meaning that holders can enter the U.S. on temporary status while simultaneously seeking lawful permanent residency. In other words, the new H-1B visa holders aren’t going home.
If tech employers are truly stretched thin, as they allege, their first consideration should be to tap into the hundreds of thousands of U.S. workers that H-1B visa holders have, over the last three decades, displaced. The list of corporations that use the H-1B visa to exile U.S. workers to the sidelines, after forcing those fired Americans to train their foreign-born replacements, is longer than Wilt Chamberlain’s arm. Among them are nationally known names like Disney, Apple, Facebook, Starbucks, Uber and Walmart.
A newcomer to the list is the Tennessee Valley Authority which announced earlier this month that it would outsource 20 percent of its highly skilled, American-born technology workforce to Capgemini, CGI and Accenture, companies headquartered in France, Canada and Ireland, respectively.
At least 120 workers learned they will lose their jobs later this summer, and the TVA informed the Engineering Association/Local 1937 that eventually another 100 jobs will be outsourced. Last month, affected workers were advised that they too would be required to train their replacements, a procedure deceptively labeled “knowledge transfer.” The TVA is a federally owned corporate agency originally designed to bring jobs to the impoverished Tennessee Valley during the Great Depression. Although TVA employees are unionized, they still can’t escape the foreign worker displacement scourge. Similar public utility displacement programs played out in California when Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas and Electric fired their U.S. tech workers and either outsourced their jobs or imported H-1B workers.
Originally, Congress created the H-1B visa program to complement the U.S. workforce. Instead, loopholes encourage abuses, pave the way for employers to bump Americans and deny opportunities to recent college graduates. Moreover, a relatively new displacement vehicle that creates roadblocks for young Americans is the never-congressionally approved Optional Practical Training Program. Initiated by the Bush 43 administration, and kept through President Trump’s three-plus White House years, OPT allows a maximum three years of employment to alien U.S. college graduates with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math. OPT provides generous tax subsidies to employers and has mushroomed into a huge foreign-born worker bonanza. More than 1.5 million OPT STEM workershold jobs that should go to Americans.
Despite what elitists, globalists, immigration lobbyists and the American Immigration Lawyers Association claim with their misleading reports and cherry-picked statistics, no intellectually sound argument that favors more H-1B visas, or more of any employment-based visas, can be made.
The ball is in President Trump’s court. He can either fulfill his 2016 campaign promise to “forever end” the H-1B visa or allow himself to be ridden roughshod over by anti-American worker advocates that include his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner. Last year, more than 900,000 new temporary work visas were issued, and more than 1.8 million work permits were granted or renewed. That’s a total of 2.7 million overseas workers entering an economy that today has more than 36 million unemployed. Among those 2.7 million were nearly 190,000 in the professional category, mostly H-1Bs. They joined approximately 500,000 settled H-1B workers.
American workers always deserve to come ahead of imported labor. Today, with the nation in the grip of the most painful economy since Herbert Hoover’s presidency, American employment must be the nation’s top priority.
