The  number of cities participating in the March on Google is still growing, but so is the opposition. Having set the narrative in Charlottesville, the completely unrelated protest against Google's manipulation of reality is being equivocated with Unite the Right and the debate on Confederate monuments. The organizer meanwhile is doing his best to denounce all violence, as the March is threatened with Left wing violence.
Pittsburgh has been added to a list of locations where a group is planning to protest Google later this week. Google has attracted a lot of attention since its East End offices first opened, but now, the building is scheduled to be the target of a rally scheduled for Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The website for the March On Google says the company is abusing its power, censoring and silencing dissenting voices on YouTube. At least nine cities are expected to hold rallies. Pittsburgh was added to the list Friday, but after this past weekend’s events in Charlottesville, the fear here is that the rallies could create rising tensions. “We saw what happened in Charlottesville. We don’t know what the response is going to be like here,” attorney and activist Felicity Williams said.  (More)

Jack Posobiec announces new Infowars' Alex Jones contest of $50K for best meme, best leak, best GIF, etc. #memewar3

Today, the March on Google was announced by Jack Posobiec and a coalition of free speech activists around the United States. Google is a monopoly, and its abusing its power to silence dissent and manipulate election results. Their company YouTube is censoring and silencing dissenting voices by creating “ghettos” for videos questioning the dominant narrative. The firing of James Damore for calling out Google’s Echo Chamber of Ideology is only further proof of Google’s insidious anti-free speech agenda. We will thus be Marching on Google! People across the country will be protesting in front of the offices of every Google office. Organizers are reaching out to James Damore to invite him to speak as well as planning a “Google Meme Contest”.
The site:
The date: Saturday, August 19th.
Locations: Anywhere Google Has An Office (Google Maps)

The philosophical and practical implications

From the Left and the Right we hear calls for the Government regulators to step in and turn Twitter and Facebook into utilities. This is the last thing we need. But the sheer threat might convince the cult leaders in the tech companies to see the error of their fascist ways. This is not the moment to into our respective ideological knee-jerk attitudes, but rather find an out of the box solution for this problem. The Libertarian default principle that "private companies can do whatever they want", it clearly not going to cut it anymore. Google has a de facto monopoly and are robbing us of our data and content; its abusing its power to silence dissent and manipulate election results. This has an affect not just our democracy, but on our culture and society as a whole. Free speech is a inalienable right and is in the US legally enshrined in the First Amendment. Clearly this covers private companies as well! We will continue to ponder the philosophical implications in this conundrum, so stay tuned!

⏩More Google employees are blowing the whistle about intimidation, discrimination, and dogma at the company following the firing of viewpoint diversity advocate James Damore. Breitbart News’ interview series, Rebels of Google, has revealed an atmosphere of profound fear at the company, in which employees who challenge Google’s hyper-progressive narratives face bullying and ostracization from co-workers, and frequently find themselves added to blacklists aimed at destroying peoples’ careers both inside and outside Google. Our last interviewee even described an incident in which someone was punched for expressing a contrary viewpoint. In our latest interview, current Google employee (alias “Gordon”) reveals more stories of intolerance and dogma at the company. He describes senior managers at Google being on the “verge of tears” following Trump’s election win, “cult-like” diversity training sessions, and an autistic employee who was fired after questioning the idea of gender as a spectrum. Every week, Google holds an end-of-week meeting with all its Mountain View employees called a “TGIF meeting” (Thank God It’s Friday). According to Gordon, the TGIF that followed Trump’s election victory was something to behold. (More)

⏩Following the debacle of James Damore's 'Diversity' memo and subsequent firing, Google decided a companywide townhall meeting was necessary to address staff concerns with executives planning to field employees’ questions voted on by their peers. The questions with the most votes would get asked. (...) However, as The Wall Street Journal reports, the meeting has been cancelled because right-wing websites published the names of employees who had proposed questions, raising security concerns. (More)

⏩Most Google employees disagree with the company’s decision to fire the employee behind a memo on diversity, a survey released Wednesday shows. Blind, an anonymous corporate networking app, surveyed its users from over 4,000 different companies on their thoughts regarding Google’s firing of software engineer James Damore, according to Business Insider. At Google, 56 percent of the 441 employees surveyed opposed their company’s decision to fire Damore. (More)

The Google employee behind a ten-page viewpoint diversity manifesto that went viral online has been fired. James Damore, whose manifesto criticizing the politically correct corporate culture at Google prompted outrage from left-wing employees and social justice warriors online, revealed that he had been fired in an email to Breitbart Tech on Monday evening. In his email to Breitbart Tech, Damore claimed, “They just fired me for ‘perpetuating gender stereotypes.'” Damore’s writing has revealed a divided Google, in which some employees agree with his outlook, but are afraid to speak out for fear of repercussions from social justice warriors in the company, such as being added to blacklists.  (More)

It's not is if there's no alternative to YT

April 17, 2017


Google is backing down and has blamed a vendor for wrongfully telling its staff to rank InfoWars as low-quality content, Business Insider reported Monday. The vendor, hired by Google, uses contractors to rate the quality of websites in order to aid the search engine’s algorithm. Leaked photos showing the vendor targeting an Infowars article were originally posted online this week by independent journalist Mike Cernovich. Google told Business Insider that it does not order “quality raters” to target specific sites but instead gives “general rules” on how to shape the algorithm. “Google’s spokesperson distanced the company from the contractor’s instructions, telling Business Insider that it does not instruct quality raters how to grade specific websites, but gives general rules to get unbiased feedback to improve the algorithm,” the article states. In an official statement, Google said the specific mention of Infowars was removed from the vendor’s training module. “In this instance, we have confirmed that a vendor we work with sent out more detailed instructions to some raters without our knowledge, which included references to specific sites,” the spokesperson said. “This is in conflict with the intent of our guidelines and the vendor has taken action to remove these references in their training module.” (WATCH: Infowars Under Unprecedented Attack By Secret Google

After shadow banning, Twitter has now rolled out what you could call 'throttling'. Have you noticed lately "this tweet is not unavailable" but when clicking it, it nonetheless is! This is Twitter's way of suppressing tweets they don't like. How can you tell if you're being throttled? Check your Analytics. If there is an inexplicable drop in your impressions, chances are Twitter's cutting you off. Have you enlisted with yet? You should. Update: clicking "unavailable" tweets now results in "blocked by user", also untrue. Twitter is engaged in lying to our face. This is now over the edge of good morality.

The organization partnered with Facebook to help determine whether a certain story is “disputed” is financed by billionaire George Soros and a slew of other left-wing funders. The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook yesterday announced it will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to the code of principles. Facebook says that if the “fact checking organizations” determine that a certain story is fake, it will get flagged as disputed and, according to the Facebook announcement, “there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.” IFCN is hosted by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies (...) openly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations as well as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy. Poynter’s IFCN is also funded by the Omidyar Network, which is the nonprofit for liberal billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. The Omidyar Network has partnered with the Open Society on numerous projects and it has given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation.

Tides is one of the largest donors to left-wing causes in the U.S. Another significant Poynter Institute donor is the Craig Newmark Foundation, the charitable organization established by Craigslist Founder Craig Newmark. On Monday (...) Newmark donated $1 million to the group to fund a faculty chair in journalism ethics. (...) Newmark funds scores of liberal groups also financed by Soros, including the Sierra Club, the New America Foundation, and the Sunlight Foundation. Newmark also finances the investigative journalism group called the Center for Public Integrity, where he serves on the board. Soros’ Open Society is another Public Integrity donor. (...)  Poynter, meanwhile, has hosted controversial journalism programs in the past, including one that was accused of downplaying the threat of global Islamic terrorism. (...) Poynter’s IFCN code of principles for news outlets, meanwhile, reads as follows: (...) (More)

The Obama/Merkel "fake news" issue is spanning across the divide of the MSM and the new social media. The old dinosaur media are controling themselves. But the Internet is, or was, a Wild West of opinion. The globalists can't take it anymore. As Angela Merkel put it the other day: information is something to managed, steereded and control. On Twitter things have become so bad, the actor James Woods, who had become a mainstay of the twitterati, has now bowed out.

Nov 17, 2016 Infowars Being Censored. 

It appears the rubber is meeting the road now on the real time censorship of conservative media in broad spectrum, with lists now popping up determining what is real news and what is fake. Now browsers will be prepared with extensions to warn you when you are on a fake site. The attack on infowars and other conservative outlets is going full fledged.

As of today Twitter has banned all criticism of religion, new rules about religious hatred apply.

Nov 15, 2016 Google and Facebook are taking aim at 'fake news' stories.

Twitter is now actively suspending AltRight accounts, while Google and Facebook have begun a war on 'fake news' sites, meaning alternative news aggregates like Breitbart, Alex Jones' Infowars, Glenn Beck's The Blaze and perhaps also, that present the news from the specific angle. (Source) Most of them 'happen' to be Right-wing. Put together with Obama signing over the administration (ICANN) of the www to the UN (source), this is a very ominous though not unexpected development indeed. We shall now have to anticipate on a moment when our Twitter accounts are no longer be accessible. For those appreciative of the Facebook format we can recommend which is a Russian FB version. Many tweeps are already in the process of moving to is a very beautiful Twitter-like format with many more functionalities besides. You can find us there @KassandraTroy

Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, put together a publicly available Google doc cataloging "False, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical 'news' sources." It's been making the rounds on social media as people seek to cleanse their newsfeeds of misinformation. Many of the sites on the list are aggregators – they take news stories from other sources and rewrite them with more inflammatory headlines and without contextual facts. Breitbart, the "platform for the alt-right" whose chairman was just named Trump's chief strategist, is on there, as is InfoWars. Alex Jones, who runs InfoWars, said Trump personally called to thank him for helping him win the election. (More)

On May 9, 2016 former Facebook workers blew the whistle on Suckberg and his MT. On May 10, 2016 we reported that Facebook's censoring was out of control! A day later Facebook assured us that, "WE ARE MOVED BY GOOD INTENTIONS". On May 12, 2016 we discovered that Facebook staff are major Hillary donors. But we now know it goes further than that, much, much further! Breitbart's Milo challenged Zuckerberg to a debate. He didn't respond. But on May 18 Zuckerberg met with a delegation of Conservatives. On May 24 Facebook wrapped up its internal probe and found Facebook not guilty of any bias against Conservatives. And now there's Wikileaks with this. Reminding you HOW TO DELETE YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. Facebook sucks, and Suckberg sucks even better. Here's how you can ritually delete your account. You have to beg the suckers to do it. If they agree to it, it takes up to 90 days to delete all of the things you've posted, like your photos, status updates or other data stored in backup systems, while your account has become inaccessible to others.

After Milo Yinannopoulos @Nero's perma ban from Twitter, today it's the turn of veteran Conservative activist and blogger Glenn Reynolds a.k.a. @InstaPundit. What caused the wrath of the SJW on Twitter's Virtue Board is Reynolds' advice to a driver caught up in the Charlotte rioting of BlackLivesMatter to stay in the car and if necessary run over the rioters to escape the war zone. Apparently Twitter would have drivers to abandon their car and risk their lives. The riots have already claimed one life. Tweeps have responded with complaints to @Jack, the hashtag #FreeInstapundit and a call to block Twitter's advertisers. Many tweeps are already relocating to GAB.AI -- a twitter like platform that guarantees free speech. There is a waiting list for new accounts, but they're working hard to expand the capacity.

After Facebook and Twitter it's now YouTube's turn for cracking down on Right wing dissent. Drudge has predicted that bloggers, vloggers and other people in the alternative media would be drawn into the social media ghetto, only to be decapitated. And he's proved right. It's a good job then that Pomonews never surrendered control over its content to the Googles and the Suckerbergs. The mindset on the Left isn't democratic in any sense. It's authoritarian. Either you toe the party line, or you're a criminal. As seen in someone's timeline: "It's a shame that Right wingers can post whatever they want on Twitter!" Hashtag: #YouTubeIsOver

Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos discusses his permanent Twitter ban and the chilling effect this will have on Libertarian and Conservative free speech. In the meantime Wikileaks tweets Twitter CEO @Jack that they will start a rival service if Twitter continues smoldering free speech.

July 20, 2016


Let’s be honest: The real reason Milo Yiannopoulos is banned from Twitter is because Leslie Jones stirred up drama to keep her bomb of a movie in the news. The Ghostbusters star threw a tantrum in a public forum and dramatically announced her exit, spawning article after article patting her back and shaming her tormentors. She perfectly ran the crybully playbook. And it all smells of cynical PR — Sony trying desperately to minimize Ghostbusters’ second-week drop after a humiliating box office debut. Of course, as a bonus, Jones cried “harassment!” when Milo teased her, giving some purple-haired Orphan Black addict at Twitter an excuse to ban him permanently from the platform.

Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention. The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.


Milo Yiannopoulos @Nero, the Breitbart tech editor and Trump-loving alt-right superstar, has been permanently banned from Twitter following accusations that he directed his followers to send abusive comments toward actress Leslie Jones @Lesdoggg. But while Yiannopoulos certainly straddles the line between being a free speech provocateur and merely a serial violator of Twitter's terms of service, these sanctions are likely to increase the perception that Twitter is no place for conservative voices. Yiannopoulos's brawl with Jones stems from her role in the new Ghostbusters movie, which features an all-female cast. The movie has taken on a culture war context: opponents of the film think its characters were made female in order to appease the dictates of political correctness. Yiannopoulos gave the movie a negative review, and soon thereafter got into a public Twitter fight with Jones. It's not clear whether Yiannopoulos actually told his followers to direct abusive tweets at Jones—he emphatically denies doing so. But Jones began receiving truly despicable tweets and images from Yiannopoulos's crowd, which prompted her to quit Twitter and even captured the attention of Twitter CEO @Jack Dorsey, who reached out to Jones and asked her to follow him so that they could communicate privately.

A newly-released YouTube video makes a compelling case that, for unclear reasons, Google search results appear manipulated in favor of Hillary Clinton. The video is the work of SourceFed, a channel with over 1.7 million subscribers that posts a variety of news, pop culture, and explanatory videos. The video’s claims revolve around the potential searches Google recommends based on what a user has typed into the search bar, and how those recommendations differ from other search engines.

Once upon a time the tech giants stood for liberty. Now they have become the loyal servants of the globalists. Spearheaded by former communist official Andrus Ansip, the European Commission published an edict outlining an electronic ID that would allow tracking what you say on-line, but also what you buy. 

Jun 2, 2016 The European Union is proposing a government ID for using the Internet which will eradicate both on-line privacy and free speech.

According to the document: It is recognised that a multitude of username and password combinations is both inconvenient and a security risk. However, the frequent practice of using one’s platform profile to access a range of websites and services often involves non-transparent exchanges and cross- linkages of personal data between various online platforms and websites. As a remedy, in order to keep identification simple and secure, consumers should be able to choose the credentials by which they want to identify or authenticate themselves. In particular, online platforms should accept credentials issued or recognised by national public authorities, such as electronic or mobile IDs, national identity cards, or bank cards. To sum it up, the EU wants to monitor everything Europeans do on-line by having all their Internet activities linked to a government ID which will annihilate on-line anonymity. (More)

Facebook has investigated Facebook and judged that Facebook is not guilty. The findings have been released in a letter to Senator John Thune, who earlier this month called the social network to account for allegations that it artificially suppresses conservative topics on its “Trending News” feed, and artificially promoted progressives ones. In the letter, which can be read in full here, Facebook reiterated their long-standing claim that there is no bias in the way they select Trending Topics. (...) However, the letter did acknowledge that their curation process may have been affected by “unintentional bias.” To resolve the issue, the company has promised to alter its curation process in a number of ways. (...) To prove their innocence, Facebook pointed to a number of occasions in which conservative news topics and sources have trended on the site. (...)

We're not buying any of this. Liberals are living in a world of their own making. Types like Suck are not even aware there is a real world next to their own parallel universe. Tucker Carlson's suggestion to populate their cloud with more diversity is therefore probably the best way forward. But to liberals political interest comes first. So this exercise will almost certainly come to naught. Read it all for yourself!

May 13, 2016 Milo Yiannopoulos Challenges Mark Zuckerberg To Debate.

May 16, 2016


On Wednesday, billionaire Mark Zuckerberg will hold a meeting with “leading conservatives,” embattled The Blaze head Glenn Beck, and former George W. Bush Administration official and co-host of Fox News Channel’s The Five Dana Perino, at the website’s Menlo Park headquarters to discuss Facebook’s conservative media suppression and censorship scandal. (...) Zuckerberg denies any wrongdoing, stating “we have found no evidence that this report is true.” He is instead planning to hold a session Wednesday where he will essentially “pat conservatives on the head” with a photo-op that is a direct testament to the fact that nothing has changed. (...)  Beck announced the meeting in a Facebook post on his page early Sunday morning. Beck and Perino will be joined by Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute, CNN’s S.E. Cupp, and Mitt Romney’s former digital director, Zac Moffatt. (...) On Friday, Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow penned an op-ed outing Zuckerberg’s “condescension,” stating that the media company would not be participating in a “pat on the head” photo-op, but that Breitbart’s tens-of-millions of readers have expressed their interest in the following:

1. An interview between Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos and Mark Zuckerberg on the topic of free speech and Facebook’s suppression of conservative media. Milo will interview Zuckerberg anytime, anywhere—and we’ll agree to have it broadcast on your live video platform.
2. Facebook to immediately cease its active suppression of conservative media, as extensively reported by Gizmodo, The Guardian, and myriad other news outlets. Indeed, Facebook’s Trending News chief, Tom Stocky, is a maximum political donor to Hillary Clinton. So there’s no need to “discuss” anything. Facebook did it, Facebook got caught, and it must end. (More)

May 13, 2016


(...) Representatives at Facebook have already reached out to Breitbart News. We have zero interest in a Facebook photo-op. Moreover, if, as Facebook claims, there has been no effort to suppress conservative media, why the need for a meeting? (...) Here’s what we and our tens of millions of readers are interested in: An interview between Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos and Mark Zuckerberg on the topic of free speech and Facebook’s suppression of conservative media. Milo will interview Zuckerberg anytime, anywhere—and we’ll agree to have it broadcast on your live video platform. Facebook to immediately cease its active suppression of conservative media, as extensively reported by Gizmodo, The Guardian, and myriad other news outlets. Indeed, Facebook’s Trending News chief, Tom Stocky, is a maximum political donor to Hillary Clinton. So there’s no need to “discuss” anything. Facebook did it, Facebook got caught, and it must end. Bottom line: be interviewed by Milo and stop screwing conservatives. Free speech is not for sale, and neither are we. (Source)


Following reports that Facebook routinely censors popular conservative news stories and artificially promotes progressive causes like Black Lives Matter on its “Trending News” feature, Breitbart technology editor Milo Yiannopoulos is today challenging Mark Zuckerberg to a live debate. Or, if Mr Zuckerberg prefers, a more traditional sit-down interview about free speech online, on Mr Zuckerberg’s own service, Facebook Live. (...) Little wonder he’s acting quickly, given that the Senate is now involved. Facebook has heavily implied that algorithms are responsible for how the site selects “trending” stories. But reports over the last few weeks have revealed that the site is heavily dependent on human editors — editors who appear to share strong liberal biases. A former Facebook editor specifically named Breitbart as one of the sites whose content Facebook has deprioritised in the past as part of its unofficial “blacklisting” practices. (More)

Admittedly, bias is hard to prove, and for all we know the former employees that spoke to Gizmodo could have been trying to seek some type of revenge against Facebook. But an article in The Guardian based on leaked documents about the trending news operation shows that human intervention plays a key part in what winds up as a Trending Topic, and that blacklisting is indeed possible. The bottom line is that Facebook needs to be more transparent in how news is curated on its site. Stocky’s post is a step in the right direction, especially if it leads to a more balanced Trending Topics. (More)

Fakebook's trending topics man has reacted to the allegations with a typical pomo answer running basically as follows: You may well see it that way, but we from our end have a different perspective. Moreover, we are moved by good intentions. Case closed.
The person in charge of Facebook’s Trending Topics section, which has come under fire in recent days over accusations that the social media platform deliberately suppressed news articles that were published on conservative websites, is a maximum donor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Tom Stocky, Facebook’s vice president of product management, issued a response to the report that was first published by Gizmodo by claiming that he has not found any evidence that the accusations within the report are true. 

“My team is responsible for Trending Topics, and I want to address today’s reports alleging that Facebook contractors manipulated Trending Topics to suppress stories of interest to conservatives (...) We take these reports extremely seriously, and have found no evidence that the anonymous allegations are true.” “Facebook is a platform for people and perspectives from across the political spectrum. There are rigorous guidelines in place for the review team to ensure consistency and neutrality.”

Suckberg's  censoring is totally out of control.

Matt Drudge Warns of the End of the Internet.

Facebook’s news curators would regularly suppress news stories important to conservative readers and keep them off the “trending” news section coveted by publications, a journalist and former Facebook employee told Gizmodo. Some of the topics that were allegedly excluded from the “trending” feed included Chris Kyle, the legendary Navy SEAL killed in 2013, the Drudge Report, controversial former IRS official Lois Lerner and comedian Steven Crowder. The former employee who spoke to Gizmodo said the censoring of news disturbed him to the point that he felt compelled to keep track of topics that were suppressed. “I believe it had a chilling effect on conservative news,” the former Facebook news curator said. “Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending. … I’d come on shift and I’d discover that CPAC or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or popular conservative topics wouldn’t be trending because either the curator didn’t recognize the news topic or it was like they had a bias against Ted Cruz,” the curator added.
