And now the mainstream is finding out that the exploitation of personal data is at the core of the techies' business model! Ow noes!

(VIDEO) THOMAS WICTOR EXPLAINS LIFE AFTER GAB


After some 12 fake "pipe bombs" were sent last week to top Democrats and the very real terrorist attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg by a deranged anti-semite, it is time for some serious soul searching and also re-evaluate our own strategy and tactics. Democrats and the liberal media continue their blind demonization of President Trump, like dysfunctional juveniles projecting all responsibility on their opponents. They are incapable of introspection and self assesssment, because that requires an objective moral standard, which they purposely destroyed years ago. The editor of present blog yesterday decided to stop posting on so called free speech platforms. While the right to free speech is a wonderful thing, it comes with an obverse side: responsibility. Libertarism is great, but its followers tend to see rights detached from context. In this instance they failed to control Jew haters and assorted lunatics, letting them run riot on their platforms. GAB is not going to survive. Thomas Wictor explains. We second his feelings entirely. Update: Wictor can't livestream, hits Facebook instead (tweet).

(VIDEO) LEVIN AND GILDER: LIFE AFTER GOOGLE




Oct. 14, 2018 Mark Levin talks to investor and economist George Gilder.

George Gilder is the author of Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy. He has a very positive outlook about the direction of technology in general and the Internet in particular. He explains on a philosophical basis why the Silicon Valley guys are not capitalists, but postmodern Marxists. This is the reason their best time is over and the future looks much better than the present social media ghetto. Gilder is an American investor, economist and co-founder of the Discovery Institute. His 1981 international bestseller Wealth and Poverty advanced a practical and moral case for supply-side economics and capitalism during the early months of the Reagan administration and made him Ronald Reagan's most quoted living author.

(VIDEO) GOOGLE IS NO AMERICAN COMPANY


Watch the entire video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election revealing an atmosphere of panic, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement. (Breitbart)


(...) whatever else it may be, Google is not an American company. "Google" is, more than anything else, a logo and a marketing label; it is also a subsidiary of a holding company called XXVI, which is in turn a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., a corporation that is also an umbrella for a number of other venture capital and research entities. For another two years, until the deadline imposed by an Irish court expires in 2020, Google or Alphabet or the Money Machine or whatever you want to call it will continue to steal from the rest of us by means of two accounting schemes known as the "Irish Double" and the "Dutch Sandwich."

A rehearsal of the specifics of these arrangements would exhaust the space of a column, but what they mean in practice is that Google has an Irish subsidiary that swallows up billions in revenue, which is then moved to a Dutch company — one which employs exactly zero persons — before being passed on to another outfit based in the Bahamas but also registered in Ireland. This labyrinthine scheme allows it to avoid paying billions of dollars in taxes on the advertising revenue it generates when people in countries around the world use its ubiquitous search engine on their smartphones, tablet devices, and computers.

⏩ Google is now going full hard totalitarian. Google co-founder Sergey Brin -- the tenth richest man in the world, with a Donald Trump-dwarfing net worth of 52.9 billion dollars -- was extremely depressed by the election of Mr. Trump, as seen in a video just surfaced by Breitbart. He compared the president's supporters to "fascists" and claimed they voted for him out of "boredom," of all things. (...)  Larry Page -- Brin's partner in otherworldly entrepreneurial success, making him even richer than Sergey -- refused to show up for a congressional hearing that principles of Facebook and Twitter did attend and answer questions.

Meanwhile word of Google’s plans to substantially expand its currently minimal role in the Chinese market—through the potential launch of a censored search engine code-named Dragonfly—has provoked such uproar. [bold mine] The plans were revealed through documents leaked to the Intercept, which reported that prototypes and negotiations with the Chinese government were far along, laying the groundwork for the potential service to launch as soon as early 2019.

Bye-bye, "Don't be evil." Actually the company's controversial watchword (now Alphabet's) had already been expunged from its corporate code of conduct last May to be replaced by the more ambiguous "Do the right thing." Doing the right thing seems now to encompass playing ball with Chairman Xi -- China's "paramount leader" for life -- who recently has been following in Mao's footsteps by publishing his own version of the "Little Red Book." (...) (...) Google in its close relationship with China is becoming China, if it's not already there. (More)


Here's the latest from Twitter: turns out, before his hearings with the US Congress last week in which his general attitude was "whatever are you talking about?" when roasted about Twitter's bias, Jack Dorsey admitted that more Conservative minded employees are afraid to speak their minds!

(PROOF) GOOGLE INTERFERED IN 2016 ELECTION


Google is just a neutral platform, like a phone directory, some say. That this is not the case and Google engages in politics has now become apparent. Google's senior employee, Eliana Murillo used company resources to increase voter turnout for Hillary Clinton. Google sent silent emails to Latinos encouraging them to vote for Hillary. It backfired when many Latinos voted for Trump
An email chain among senior Google executives from the day after the 2016 presidential election reveals the company tried to influence the 2016 United States presidential election on behalf of one candidate, Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton. In the emails, a Google executive describes efforts to pay for free rides for a certain sect of the population to the polls–a get-out-the-vote for Hispanic voters operation–and how these efforts were because she thought it would help Hillary Clinton win the general election in 2016. She also used the term “silent donation” to describe Google’s contribution to the effort to elect Clinton president. The main email, headlined, “Election results and the Latino vote,” was sent on Nov. 9, 2016—the day after Clinton’s loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election—by Eliana Murillo, Google’s Multicultural Marketing department head.
