AMENDED RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ) DEMAND FOR CO-OPERATIVE FILING OF RICO CHARGES WITH ASSISTED AND ASSOCIATED CHARGES COMBINING THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND PLAINTIFFS AS PLAINTIFF GROUP

 

WHEREAS, Defendants Gawker Media, GMGI, Gawker Hungary (f/k/a Blogwire Hungary Szellemi Alkotast Hasznosito Kft.), Gawker Entertainment LLC, Gawker Technology, LLC, Gawker Sales, LLC, Nicholas G. A. Denton, Irin Carmon, Univision Communications, Univision America, Adrian Covert, Jon Herrman, Gaby Darbyshire, UniModa LLC, Elon Musk, John Doerr and DOES I through 220, including each employee of Gawker Media, did engage in RICO statute violations in their attempts to damage Plaintiffs.

 

WHEREAS, public officials and investigators have provided proof of RICO violations to all journalism, Congressional and law enforcement parties with jurisdiction in these charges.

 

WHEREAS, public news media and IT forums have now confirmed that due to Gawker Media’s attempted media manipulations in the 2008 and 2016 Presidential elections and the cross-national exchange of funds and interests between multiple questionable entities on multiple continents that each and every member of the above-stated defendants group has been under electronic surveillance on every electronic device with an IMEI address or network functionality by multiple law enforcement, defense, civil investigation, intelligence entities and the placement of under-cover journalists with Defendants group; and that the results of that surveillance, since 2007 is subpoena-accessible in this matter. Further, each of those legitimate entities that engaged in such surveillance that had even a single Cisco or Juniper Networks back-door embedded device touching their network has been revealed by U.S. DHS public reports to have had their servers breached by hackers. Any such evidence discovered after-the-fact may also legally be used in this case as evidence

 

WHEREAS the publication known as THE INTERCEPT is funded by Gawker Media’s backers and shares real-estate venues with Gawker Media, First Look, The Intercept and other coordinating publications and that publication has published the following overview which describes in detail the Stasi-like methods used by Defendants against Plaintiffs:

 

“One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

 

Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Today, we at the Intercept are publishing another new JTRIG document, in full, entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”

 

By publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

 

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums. Here is one illustrative list of tactics from the latest GCHQ document we’re publishing today:

 

 

Other tactics aimed at individuals are listed here, under the revealing title “discredit a target”:

 

 

Then there are the tactics used to destroy companies the agency targets:

 

 

GCHQ describes the purpose of JTRIG in starkly clear terms: “using online techniques to make something happen in the real or cyber world,” including “information ops (influence or disruption).”

 

 

Critically, the “targets” for this deceit and reputation-destruction extend far beyond the customary roster of normal spycraft: hostile nations and their leaders, military agencies, and intelligence services. In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or, more broadly still, “hacktivism”, meaning those who use online protest activity for political ends.

 

The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats, and indeed, centrally involves law enforcement agents who investigate ordinary crimes:

 

 

No matter your views on Anonymous, “hacktivists” or garden-variety criminals, it is not difficult to see how dangerous it is to have secret government agencies being able to target any individuals they want – who have never been charged with, let alone convicted of, any crimes – with these sorts of online, deception-based tactics of reputation destruction and disruption. There is a strong argument to make, as Jay Leiderman demonstrated in the Guardian in the context of the Paypal 14 hacktivist persecution, that the “denial of service” tactics used by hacktivists result in (at most) trivial damage (far less than the cyber-warfare tactics favored by the US and UK) and are far more akin to the type of political protest protected by the First Amendment.

 

The broader point is that, far beyond hacktivists, these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations and disrupt their online political activity even though they’ve been charged with no crimes, and even though their actions have no conceivable connection to terrorism or even national security threats. As Anonymous expert Gabriella Coleman of McGill University told me, “targeting Anonymous and hacktivists amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.” Pointing to this study she published, Professor Coleman vehemently contested the assertion that “there is anything terrorist/violent in their actions.”

 

Government plans to monitor and influence internet communications, and covertly infiltrate online communities in order to sow dissension and disseminate false information, have long been the source of speculation. Harvard Law Professor Cass Sunstein, a close Obama adviser and the White House’s former head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote a controversial paper in 2008 proposing that the US government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites, as well as other activist groups.

 

Sunstein also proposed sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups” which spread what he views as false and damaging “conspiracy theories” about the government. Ironically, the very same Sunstein was recently named by Obama to serve as a member of the NSA review panel created by the White House, one that – while disputing key NSA claims – proceeded to propose many cosmetic reforms to the agency’s powers (most of which were ignored by the President who appointed them).

 

But these GCHQ documents are the first to prove that a major western government is using some of the most controversial techniques to disseminate deception online and harm the reputations of targets. Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations” and emails to people’s families and friends. Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework?

 

Then there is the use of psychology and other social sciences to not only understand, but shape and control, how online activism and discourse unfolds. Today’s newly published document touts the work of GCHQ’s “Human Science Operations Cell,” devoted to “online human intelligence” and “strategic influence and disruption”:

 

 

 

Under the title “Online Covert Action”, the document details a variety of means to engage in “influence and info ops” as well as “disruption and computer net attack,” while dissecting how human beings can be manipulated using “leaders,” “trust,” “obedience” and “compliance”:

 

 

 

 

 

The documents lay out theories of how humans interact with one another, particularly online, and then attempt to identify ways to influence the outcomes – or “game” it:

 

 

 

 

We submitted numerous questions to GCHQ, including: (1) Does GCHQ in fact engage in “false flag operations” where material is posted to the Internet and falsely attributed to someone else?; (2) Does GCHQ engage in efforts to influence or manipulate political discourse online?; and (3) Does GCHQ’s mandate include targeting common criminals (such as boiler room operators), or only foreign threats?

 

As usual, they ignored those questions and opted instead to send their vague and nonresponsive boilerplate: “It is a longstanding policy that we do not comment on intelligence matters. Furthermore, all of GCHQ’s work is carried out in accordance with a strict legal and policy framework which ensures that our activities are authorised, necessary and proportionate, and that there is rigorous oversight, including from the Secretary of State, the Interception and Intelligence Services Commissioners and the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee. All our operational processes rigorously support this position.”

 

These agencies’ refusal to “comment on intelligence matters” – meaning: talk at all about anything and everything they do – is precisely why whistleblowing is so urgent, the journalism that supports it so clearly in the public interest, and the increasingly unhinged attacks by these agencies so easy to understand. Claims that government agencies are infiltrating online communities and engaging in “false flag operations” to discredit targets are often dismissed as conspiracy theories, but these documents leave no doubt they are doing precisely that.

 

Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics: what justification is there for having government agencies target people – who have been charged with no crime – for reputation-destruction, infiltrate online political communities, and develop techniques for manipulating online discourse? But to allow those actions with no public knowledge or accountability is particularly unjustifiable.

 

Documents referenced in this article:

 

 

WHEREAS, Defendants are documented by advisors, whistle-blowers and consultants from law enforcement, defense, civil investigation, insider reporters from such as publications as TECH CRUNCH, The Daily Mail, ICIJ, Drudge Report, etc. and intelligence entities as being the persons and parties who did engage in the following attacks on Plaintiffs and said attacks can be tracked back to Defendants via forensic data and said attacks by Defendants threatened the lives, brands, incomes, careers, safety, security, and other metrics of Plaintiffs:

 

­ Defendants produced a series of attack videos, articles, blog comments and documents and sent them directly to the spouses, partners, landlords, investors, employers, news media and others in an effort to “vaporize” Plaintiffs as part of the reprisal, vendetta, retribution services which Defendants offered and accepted employment to engage in. Defendants published these attack materials to over 5 billion people for over 5 years in hopes of “destroying” Plaintiffs.

 

– Defendants contacted Social Security, SSI, SDI, Disability and other earned benefits services and caused them to be stone­walled. Applications were “lost”. Files in the application process “disappeared”. Lois Lerner hard drive “incidents” took place.

 

­ Corrupt state and federal employees worked with Defendants to play an endless game of Catch­22 by arbitrarily determining that deadlines had passed that they, the government officials, had stonewalled and obfuscated applications for, in order to force these deadlines that they set, to appear to be missed.

 

­ Some applicants found themselves strangely poisoned, not unlike the Alexander Litvenko case. Heavy metals and toxic materials were found right after their work with the Department of Energy weapons and energy facilities. Many wonder if these “targets” were intentionally exposed to toxins in retribution for their testimony. The federal MSDS documents clearly show that a number of these people were exposed to deadly compounds and radiations.

 

­ Applicants employers were called, and faxed, and ordered to fire applicants from their places of employment, in the middle of the day,with no notice, as a retribution tactic.

 

­ Applicants HR and employment records, on recruiting and hiring databases, were embedded with negative keywords and links to Defendants servers in order to prevent them from gaining future employment.

 

­ Peers Gary D. Conley and Rajeev Motwani, both whistle­blowers in this matter, turned up dead under strange circumstances. They are not alone in a series of bizarre deaths related to this matter.

 

­ Paypal, owned by Gawker backer Pierre Omidyar, and other on­line payments for on­line sales were delayed, hidden, or re­directed in order to terminate income potential for applicants who competed with Defendants interests and holdings.

 

­ DNS redirection, website spoofing which sent applicants websites to dead ends and other Internet activity manipulations were conducted.

 

­ Campaign finance dirty tricks contractors IN­Q­Tel, Think Progress, Media Matters, Gawker Media, Syd Blumenthal, etc., were hired and proven to have all been financially connected to Defendants. Executives and their campaign financiers to attack applicants who competed with Defendant executives stocks and personal assets.

 

­ Covert Defendant partner: Google, transfered large sums of cash to dirty tricks contractors and then manually locked the media portion of the attacks into the top lines of the top pages of all Google searches globally, for years, with hidden embedded codes in the links and web-pages which multiplied the attacks on applicants by many magnitudes.

 

­ Honeytraps and moles were employed by the attackers. In this tactic, people who covertly worked for the attackers were employed to approach the “target” in order to spy on and misdirect the subject. Vanity Fair produced a feature article about one such attack on the Founder of Tech Crunch, a peer.

 

­ Mortgage and rental applications had red flags added to them by Defendants in databases to prevent the targets from getting homes or apartments.

 

­ McCarthy­Era “Black­lists” were created and employed against applicants who competed with Defendants executives and their campaign financiers to prevent them from funding and future employment.

 

­ Targets were very carefully placed in a position of not being able to get jobs, unemployment benefits, disability benefits or acquire any possible sources of income. “

 

The above list is only a partial set of examples of the attacks by Defendants.

 

WHEREAS, Defendants attacking entities, for whom law enforcement and intelligence surveillance records exist, are, at least, known to include Defendants employees and contractors: Adam Dachis, Adam Weinstein, Adrian Covert, Adrien Chen, Alan Henry, Albert Burneko, Alex Balk, Alexander Pareene, Alexandra Philippides, Allison Wentz, Andrew Collins, Andrew Magary, Andrew Orin, Angelica Alzona, Anna Merlan, Ariana Cohen, Ashley Feinberg, Ava Gyurina, Barry Petchesky, Brendan I.

­ Honeytraps and moles were employed by the attackers. In this tactic, people who covertly worked for the attackers were employed to approach the “target” in order to spy on and misdirect the subject. Vanity Fair produced a feature article about one such attack on the Founder of Tech Crunch, a peer.

 

­ Mortgage and rental applications had red flags added to them by Defendants in databases to prevent the targets from getting homes or apartments.

 

­ McCarthy­Era “Black­lists” were created and employed against applicants who competed with Defendants executives and their campaign financiers to prevent them from funding and future employment.

 

­ Targets were very carefully placed in a position of not being able to get jobs, unemployment benefits, disability benefits or acquire any possible sources of income. “

 

The above list is only a partial set of examples of the attacks by Defendants.

 

WHEREAS, Defendants attacking entities, for whom law enforcement and intelligence surveillance records exist, are, at least, known to include Defendants employees and contractors: Adam Dachis, Adam Weinstein, Adrian Covert, Adrien Chen, Alan Henry, Albert Burneko, Alex Balk, Alexander Pareene, Alexandra Philippides, Allison Wentz, Andrew Collins, Andrew Magary, Andrew Orin, Angelica Alzona, Anna Merlan, Ariana Cohen, Ashley Feinberg, Ava Gyurina, Barry Petchesky, Brendan I.

Tesla’s Cover-Up Is Falling Apart- Lawsuits Filed- NHTSA Charged With Hiding Tesla Dangers To Protect Obama

For years, numerous groups have been filing reports with DOT and NHTSA charging TESLA with faulty acceleration and fire dangers but the White House ordered agencies to take no action against campaign financier Elon Musk.

Tesla owner files lawsuit in California claiming sudden acceleration

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Tesla Motors Inc was sued on Friday by a Model X owner who said his electric SUV suddenly accelerated while being parked, causing it to crash through the garage into the owner’s living room, injuring the driver and a passenger.

The Model X owner, Ji Chang Son, said that one night in September, he slowly pulled into his driveway as his garage door opened when the car suddenly sped forward.

“The vehicle spontaneously began to accelerate at full power, jerking forward and crashing through the interior wall of the garage, destroying several wooden support beams in the wall and a steel sewer pipe, among other things, and coming to rest in Plaintiffs’ living room,” the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in the Central District of California, seeks class action status. It cites seven other complaints registered in a database compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) dealing with sudden acceleration without warning.

Tesla said in a statement that it had “conducted a thorough investigation” of the claims made by Son.

“The evidence, including data from the car, conclusively shows that the crash was the result of Mr. Son pressing the accelerator pedal all the way to 100 percent,” a Tesla spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

Tesla said it has various ways to protect against pedal misapplication, including using its Autopilot sensors to distinguish between erroneous pedal application and normal cases.

The lawsuit alleges product liability, negligence and breaches of warranty, and seeks unspecified damages.

NHTSA did not return a phone call seeking verification of the complaints in its database.

The luxury Model X, launched in late 2015 X, was Tesla’s first sport utility vehicle.

In its marketing, Tesla claims the Model X is the safest SUV in history.

Why you should NEVER buy a Tesla, or anything that Elon Musk Makes!

 

 

 

  • If you have an ounce of morality, then you will not want to help Musk & Tesla profit from the crony political corruption that created them. Musk exists because he bribes politicians & acts as an illegal campaign financing conduit.

  • DOT/NHTSA has covered up years of reports about an acceleration surge issue that can suddenly crash your Tesla into walls and drive it off cliffs. It is either a known hacking attack or the effect of WiFi on Tesla electronics. Either can kill you.

  • If you believe in God, or are in any way religious, Musk & Tesla are pure evil & exist because of hyper-corruption. You don’t want to contribute to their evil or be part of it in any way. You are funding evil & supporting criminal corruption by buying a Tesla or any Elon Musk owned product like Solar City, Tesla, Space X, Hyperloop, etc.!

  • If you read about the dirty deeds and cocaine dealings with the In-Q-Tel airplanes called “Cocaine 1” & “Cocaine 2”, & the corruption behind the company called In-Q-Tel & Musk’s software programmer who ran “The Silk Road” drug & murder service then you must be concerned that many In-Q-Tel people work for Musk. Why does Musk need dirty druggies & spies on his payroll unless he is running covert drug and business spying activities?

  • If you are a Democrat then know that Elon Musk cost you the Hillary Clinton campaign because of his payola schemes. If you are a Republican, know that Elon Musk is the epitome of the worst form of DNC crony corruption you ever saw!

  • Musk bribed California politicians to give him hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars & resources he never earned or worked for. He only got those crony payola perks handed to him because he operated as an illicit front for corrupt campaign financing for Dianne Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  • Multiple parties have filed “Demands For The Arrest of Elon Musk” with the FBI, DOJ, AG, FTC, SEC and other law enforcement agencies. It is not likely that Musk, or his companies will survive a full investigation.

  • Tesla and Solyndra sit on the same land in Fremont, CA. Solyndra was raided by the FBI for corruption. Tesla SHOULD be raided by the FBI for corruption. Both companies had kick-back crony payola schemes with Senator Dianne Feinstein. She owned the land, lease, HR, construction company and supplier interests and stock for both companies in one of the most massive conflict-of-interest crony financing schemes in U.S. history. Elon Musk and the Feinsteins are corruption partners.

  • People who see you in a Tesla think of you as a “Tone Deaf Douchebag”, “Tesla Tool!”, “Arrogant Prick”, “Ostentatious Obama Oaf”, “Sheep”, “Mindless Yuppie Scum”, “Misogynistic Silicon Valley Clone”, “Self-promoting Elitist Douche”, “Fake News Reading Main Stream Boob”, “Naive Idiot” or other bad things.

  • Elon Musk is one of the main financiers behind Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton, both of whom have been charged with corruption. Musk endlessly tweets lies & “…No I didn’t do those bad things” BS but nobody else supports him.

  • Tesla financial records are “cooked” in a fraudulent manner to make the stock market valuation of Tesla a falsely manipulated factor. Musk uses “pre-orders”, by his own investors, to fake sales and wrote emails to customers asking them to put small deposits down so he could book them as fully paid sales in one of a large number of stock and loan valuation frauds. Musk and his investors practice stock market skims, pump-and-dumps and Flash Boy manipulations.

  • Lithium ion batteries are blowing up, starting fires &, generally, destroying people’s homes, cars, electronics & physical health. Boeing was ordered to stop flying the 787 Dreamliner because it’s Lithium ion batteries are catching fire spontaneously. A group of silicon valley venture capitalists forced/leveraged the government to buy & pay for these specific batteries, that they have stock in, in order to benefit their profit margins. Other batteries don’t have these problems. They knew about the dangers from day one, but put greed ahead of safety. There are thousands & thousands of reports of spontaneous lithium ion fires but the VC’s who back lithium ion pay to keep this information hushed up. Millions of these batteries have been recalled for fire risk. The VC’s tried to push as many as they could before they got caught. Now they are caught. These VC’s & the Senators they bribed own stock in lithium mining companies too.

  • Tesla Motors has filed a patent which states the following , THESE ARE TESLA MOTORS WORDS warning about a crisis, the level of which they never disclosed to the consumer: “Thermal runaway is of major concern since a single incident can lead to significant property damage &, in some circumstances, bodily harm or loss of life. When a battery undergoes thermal runaway, it typically emits a large quantity of smoke, jets of flaming liquid electrolyte, & sufficient heat to lead to the combustion & destruction of materials in close proximity to the cell. If the cell undergoing thermal runaway is surrounded by one or more additional cells as is typical in a battery pack, then a single thermal runaway event can quickly lead to the thermal runaway of multiple cells which, in turn, can lead to much more extensive collateral damage. Regardless of whether a single cell or multiple cells are undergoing this phenomenon, if the initial fire is not extinguished immediately, subsequent fires may be caused that dramatically expand the degree of property damage. For example, the thermal runaway of a battery within an unattended laptop will likely result in not only the destruction of the laptop, but also at least partial destruction of its surroundings, e.g., home, office, car, laboratory, etc. If the laptop is on-board an aircraft, for example within the cargo hold or a luggage compartment, the ensuing smoke & fire may lead to an emergency landing or, under more dire conditions, a crash landing. Similarly, the thermal runaway of one or more batteries within the battery pack of a hybrid or electric vehicle may destroy not only the car, but may lead to a car wreck if the car is being driven or the destruction of its surroundings if the car is parked”.

  • Tesla’s own staff, & every fire department, have now admitted that once a lithium ion fire gets started in a Tesla, that it is impossibleto extinguish burning lithium ion material. This is Telsa’s own words in THEIR patent filing, (You can look it up online) saying that the risk is monumental. Tesla has 6800 lithium ion batteries, any one of which can “go thermal”, start a chain reaction and blow up all of the rest of the 6800+ deadly batteries! Tesla drivers have been burned alive in thermal globs of flaming lithium ion, plastics & metal. Bystanders have heard their horrific screams of unutterable pain & terror as they were burned alive! Tesla fires can’t be extinguished & the bodies are burned into “unrecognizable lumps of charred flesh”, according to fireman.

  • Lithium Ion batteries “go thermal” in peoples pockets, in your notebook, especially in a Tesla & Fisker car. There are tens of thousands of articles documenting this & there is a cover-up by the VC’s that fund these things to keep this fact out-of-sight. Making Lithium Ion batteries poisons the workers who make them. It is a dangerous product that is covered-up by the Obama Administration. Panasonic knows that these batteries are deadly.

  • Tesla only exists to exploit Elon Musk’s briberies. The lithium ion batteries blow up when they get: wet, hot, bumped, over-charged, struck by energy fields, exposed to air or squashed. Lithium ion batteries poison the Earth & that they poison & kill the workers that make them. Lithium ion batteries come from war profiteering in Afghan & Bolivian corruption.

  • Panasonic is Elon Musk’s partner. Panasonic is one of the most corrupt companies in the world. Panasonic has been charged, on multiple continents with: Product dumping, bribery, collusion, price fixing, anti-trust law violations, racketeering, worker abuse, toxic poisoning of workers, & other crimes. It is no wonder that Elon Musk & Panasonic are partners. Tata Motors executive Karl Slym was killed for exposing this fact.

  • Your tax dollars were stolen in order to make Tesla Motors, as part of a political financing kick-back scam. In other words, part of your paycheck was taken away from you in order to buy hookers, rent-boys & private jets for Musk & company.

  • Tesla’s are forged in criminal corruption, so anybody who drives a Tesla must be either ignorant, a weasel or one of the corrupt. The whole world now knows all of the facts in this list so you can never plead ignorance to these crimes.

  • Telsa’s have a huge amount of highly documented defects. The defects are so extensive that Tesla made buyers sign confidentiality agreements to try to hide how messed up their cars are.

  • Tesla’s have killed more people than the main-stream news has reported. The full Tesla death-list is covered up.

  • Musk lied about why he wanted to make electric cars, when, in fact, he actually poisons the environment because Tesla investors wanted to exploit toxic minerals & materials which can’t be recycled in a clean manner

  • No other electric car has been so mundane, & yet had so many problems with it, since the electric car was first sold in the 1800’s. There is nothing “novel” or “amazing” about the Tesla aside from dime store parlor tricks for PR hype.

  • More drunks have crashed Tesla’s, than any other per capita car in the world, per volume of cars made

  • Elon Musk’s co-founders, investors, partners, wives, investors, suppliers & employees have sued him for being a fraud &, essentially, called him an “asshole” in court records.

  • Elon Musk lied on this Department of Energy funding application and the Obama Administration refuses to allow any federal employees or witnesses to testify to these facts in public due to the devastating potential results of these facts.

  • More owners of Tesla’s have been found to cheat on their taxes, & be involved in abuse-based divorces, than almost any other car brand owner. Tesla owners are bad people who rationalize their poor life choices.

  • Elon Musk will lie, cheat & steal in order to self-aggrandize & glorify his egotistical mania. Musk has been documented engaging in over 100 lies which were later proven to be false. He has spent tens of millions of dollars to but fake news about himself on Twitter, Facebook & Google because he is such a mentally disturbed ego-maniac.

  • None of Elon Musk’s companies would exist if not for taxpayer funded handouts given to him by corrupt politicians in exchange for illegal campaign finance deals with him & his investors.

  • Google, & Tesla, who are financial & political partners, have both been caught spying on consumers & manipulating Internet data in order to cover-up their complicity in huge political corruption & kick-back deals

  • Musk took U.S. taxpayer dollars from the government & then hired cheap off-shore labor & fired U.S. Union workers & domestic workers. He lied to & screwed the NUMMI workers that were working at the Fremont plant.

  • Musk has put over 18 surveillance devices in the Tesla. Anybody can hack those devices & monitor you. WORSE YET, foreign agents have hacked the Tesla & taken over the controls & driven Tesla’s into bystanders & over cliffs.

  • When Erick Strickland was head of the NHTSA he was confronted about DOT safety cover-ups of the Tesla to protect Obama. He quit 48 hours later. The DOT safety cover-ups to protect the Obama campaign finance payola scheme continue to this day. Obama’s Gibbs, Emanual, Plouffe, Axelrod and Carney quit within a week of being threatened with exposure.

  • Tesla’s have had a large number of recalls but Elon Musk refuses to call them “recalls”. Tesla’s have had multiple recalls for SEVERE safety dangers. DOT has been told this, in writing, for years, but wont take action in order to protect Obama.

  • Elon Musk is a bullshit artist who has no original ideas & wears black-turtle neck shirts (like Elizabeth Homes) to try to create a “cult” around himself & convince the world that he is a “Jesus-like” figure when, in fact, he is a clinical sociopath.

  • Tesla is a severe public safety hazard that has been systematically covered up by corrupt politicians.

  • Tesla Motors batteries were promoted by those who wished to exploit the Afghanistan War for personal profit by controlling the Afghan lithium mining fields. Kleiner Perkins and Draper Fisher hyped the “…trillions of $ of lithium in Afganistan.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up on their own.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up when they get wet.

  • Tesla Motors batteries fires cannot be put out by any common fire-fighting resources.

  • Tesla Motors batteries set themselves on fire.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit cancer-causing vapors when they burn.

  • Tesla Motors Vehicles toxicity poison bystanders, nearby vehicular passengers, airline passengers in planes carrying said batteries in their holds, & environments where such incidents occur.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up when bumped by the same level of car incident that would, otherwise, only dent a normal car bumper.

  • In an accident, when a Tesla rolls over, molten metal & plastic can drip on & burn the occupants alive.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit brain damaging chemicals when they burn.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals, burning, or not, that can damage an unborn fetus.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause lung damage.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause liver damage.

  • Per published lawsuits & news reports, the factories that make Tesla Motors batteries have been charged with the deaths, & potentially fatal illness, of over 1000 workers & the poisoning of nearby towns.

  • Tesla Motors batteries become even more dangerous over time, particularly when tasked by electric transportation systems like Hover-boards & Tesla’s. The chemistry in a lithium ion battery changes to become more unstable over time.

  • Tesla Motors batteries were never designed to be used in automobiles. Tesla used non-automotive batteries in one of the most dangerous configurations possible.

  • Tesla Motors occupants experience higher EMF radiation exposure than gasoline vehicle occupants.

  • Elon Musk’s Space X vehicles & Tesla Motors vehicles have both had a higher-than-average number of explosions. This has caused outside experts to doubt Musk’s ability to place safety considerations over his need for hyped-up PR.

  • Leaked Sandia National Labs & FAA research videos dramatically demonstrate the unstoppable, horrific, “re-percussive accelerating domino-effect” explosive fire effect of the Tesla Motors batteries.

  • Tesla’s own “Superchargers” & home 3-prong chargers have set Tesla’s, homes & businesses on fire.

  • Consumer rights groups contacted Erick Strickland, the head of the NHTSA, & charged him with a cover-up. He quit days later. The NHTSA then issued a safety investigation request to Tesla Motors, which would have more publicly exposed these dangers, but the safety investigation was never under-taken due to White House requests & lobbyist bribes, from Tesla, which got the investigation shut down.

  • NEPA regulations for the Tesla NUMMI factory in California & the Nevada Tesla “Gigafactory” have been violated relative to environmental safety standards.

  • Tesla Motors vehicles are not “Factory Built” “like Ford” builds cars, as Tesla professes. They are hand built in small volumes & subjected to numerous defects. Blogs have documented hundreds of defects, as listed by Tesla owners. Tesla has lost at least one LEMON CAR LAWSUIT for defective manufacturing.

  • Tesla’s “showrooms” are often “pop-up” retail storefronts that are in tight-proximity retail centers, putting it’s neighbors at risk of total loss from fire damage.

  • Tesla Motors vehicles have been hacked & taken over. Their doors, steering, listening devices & navigation have been taken over by outside parties. Multiple Tesla have suddenly swerved off the road, over cliffs & into other vehicles, killing bystanders & Tesla drivers.

  • Three Tesla top engineers & two competing senior executives, all of whom had whistle-blown on Tesla, who were in perfect health one day, suddenly died mysteriously the next day.

  • Multiple employees, founders, investors, marital partners, suppliers & others have sued Tesla Motors, &/or it’s senior executives for fraud. Musk had nothing to do with creating Tesla. He ran a hostile take-over of Tesla from the founders.

  • In addition to suing him, many of his former staff & partners have described Musk as an “Arrogant Prick”.

  • If you think the above bullet-points are bad there are over a 1000 more. Find the book “Is Elon Musk A Fraud” online or visit https://stopelonfromfailingagain.com/ or thousands of other sites that expose the truth about Musk & Tesla!

RICO Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act demand for co-operative filing of RICO charges in association with The U.S. Department of Justice

 

WHEREAS, Defendants Gawker Media, GMGI, Gawker Hungary (f/k/a Blogwire Hungary Szellemi Alkotast Hasznosito Kft.), Gawker Entertainment LLC, Gawker Technology, LLC, Gawker Sales, LLC, Nicholas G. A. Denton, Irin Carmon, Univision Communications, Univision America, Adrian Covert, Jon Herrman, Gaby Darbyshire, Elon Musk, John Doerr and DOES I through 50 did engage in RICO statute violations in their attempts to damage Plaintiffs.

 

WHEREAS, public officials and investigators have provided proof of RICO violations to all parties with jurisdiction in these charges.

 

WHEREAS the publication known as THE INTERCEPT is funded by Gawker Media’s backers and that publication has published the following overview which describes in detail the methods used by Defendants against Plaintiffs:

 

“One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

 

Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Today, we at the Intercept are publishing another new JTRIG document, in full, entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”

 

By publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

 

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums. Here is one illustrative list of tactics from the latest GCHQ document we’re publishing today:

 


 

Other tactics aimed at individuals are listed here, under the revealing title “discredit a target”:

 


 

Then there are the tactics used to destroy companies the agency targets:

 


 

GCHQ describes the purpose of JTRIG in starkly clear terms: “using online techniques to make something happen in the real or cyber world,” including “information ops (influence or disruption).”

 


 

Critically, the “targets” for this deceit and reputation-destruction extend far beyond the customary roster of normal spycraft: hostile nations and their leaders, military agencies, and intelligence services. In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or, more broadly still, “hacktivism”, meaning those who use online protest activity for political ends.

 

The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats, and indeed, centrally involves law enforcement agents who investigate ordinary crimes:

 


 

No matter your views on Anonymous, “hacktivists” or garden-variety criminals, it is not difficult to see how dangerous it is to have secret government agencies being able to target any individuals they want – who have never been charged with, let alone convicted of, any crimes – with these sorts of online, deception-based tactics of reputation destruction and disruption. There is a strong argument to make, as Jay Leiderman demonstrated in the Guardian in the context of the Paypal 14 hacktivist persecution, that the “denial of service” tactics used by hacktivists result in (at most) trivial damage (far less than the cyber-warfare tactics favored by the US and UK) and are far more akin to the type of political protest protected by the First Amendment.

 

The broader point is that, far beyond hacktivists, these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations and disrupt their online political activity even though they’ve been charged with no crimes, and even though their actions have no conceivable connection to terrorism or even national security threats. As Anonymous expert Gabriella Coleman of McGill University told me, “targeting Anonymous and hacktivists amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.” Pointing to this study she published, Professor Coleman vehemently contested the assertion that “there is anything terrorist/violent in their actions.”

 

Government plans to monitor and influence internet communications, and covertly infiltrate online communities in order to sow dissension and disseminate false information, have long been the source of speculation. Harvard Law Professor Cass Sunstein, a close Obama adviser and the White House’s former head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote a controversial paper in 2008 proposing that the US government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites, as well as other activist groups.

 

Sunstein also proposed sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups” which spread what he views as false and damaging “conspiracy theories” about the government. Ironically, the very same Sunstein was recently named by Obama to serve as a member of the NSA review panel created by the White House, one that – while disputing key NSA claims – proceeded to propose many cosmetic reforms to the agency’s powers (most of which were ignored by the President who appointed them).

 

But these GCHQ documents are the first to prove that a major western government is using some of the most controversial techniques to disseminate deception online and harm the reputations of targets. Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations” and emails to people’s families and friends. Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework?

 

Then there is the use of psychology and other social sciences to not only understand, but shape and control, how online activism and discourse unfolds. Today’s newly published document touts the work of GCHQ’s “Human Science Operations Cell,” devoted to “online human intelligence” and “strategic influence and disruption”:

 


 


 

Under the title “Online Covert Action”, the document details a variety of means to engage in “influence and info ops” as well as “disruption and computer net attack,” while dissecting how human beings can be manipulated using “leaders,” “trust,” “obedience” and “compliance”:

 


 

 

 

 

The documents lay out theories of how humans interact with one another, particularly online, and then attempt to identify ways to influence the outcomes – or “game” it:

 

 

 

 

We submitted numerous questions to GCHQ, including: (1) Does GCHQ in fact engage in “false flag operations” where material is posted to the Internet and falsely attributed to someone else?; (2) Does GCHQ engage in efforts to influence or manipulate political discourse online?; and (3) Does GCHQ’s mandate include targeting common criminals (such as boiler room operators), or only foreign threats?

 

As usual, they ignored those questions and opted instead to send their vague and nonresponsive boilerplate: “It is a longstanding policy that we do not comment on intelligence matters. Furthermore, all of GCHQ’s work is carried out in accordance with a strict legal and policy framework which ensures that our activities are authorised, necessary and proportionate, and that there is rigorous oversight, including from the Secretary of State, the Interception and Intelligence Services Commissioners and the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee. All our operational processes rigorously support this position.”

 

These agencies’ refusal to “comment on intelligence matters” – meaning: talk at all about anything and everything they do – is precisely why whistleblowing is so urgent, the journalism that supports it so clearly in the public interest, and the increasingly unhinged attacks by these agencies so easy to understand. Claims that government agencies are infiltrating online communities and engaging in “false flag operations” to discredit targets are often dismissed as conspiracy theories, but these documents leave no doubt they are doing precisely that.

 

Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics: what justification is there for having government agencies target people – who have been charged with no crime – for reputation-destruction, infiltrate online political communities, and develop techniques for manipulating online discourse? But to allow those actions with no public knowledge or accountability is particularly unjustifiable.

LETTER TO NANCY PELOSI CHALLENGES POLITICAL CORRUPTION

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi

 

Speaker of the House – U.S. Senate

 

450 Golden Gate Ave

 

San Francisco, CA 94107

 

 

 

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi

 

Speaker of the House – U.S. Senate

 

Senate Dirksen 127

 

Washington DC  20510

 

 

 

Dec. 30, 2016

 

 

 

Dear Ms. Pelosi:

 

 

We have been contacting you and your office since 2009 about a political corruption matter. We documented our meetings, phone calls and certified letters to your senior staff who said they were reporting directly to you. We provided our concerns, in writing to every U.S. law enforcement and ethics body.

 

 

You now must consider your legacy and the legacy of your family. Over 10,000 new news media organizations are now tracking this matter and have over one million pages of evidence in hand. They are guaranteed to lock your legacy over this matter in the history books for the next 200 years. What you do next will determine how that legacy, your profits and any benefits fall in the deficit column.

 

 

We hope you are not one of the parties that law enforcement and forensic investigators found had spent over $30M on reprisals, vendettas and retribution actions against your own constituents, including us. As our employee, you have a legal obligation to protect us and not attack us. Is that not correct?

 

 

As a few examples of the obfuscation and obligation evasion we have experienced from your senior staff let us quote these highly documented items.

 

 

We met with Melanie Nutter who said that she reported to you on a “daily basis”. She gave us her card and stated that she was your Deputy District Director. We met with her inside your office at 450 Golden Gate Ave in San Francisco. She said that there “appeared to be some severe dysfunction in the Department of Energy”. She never responded again after numerous calls and visits. Here is her card with her forensic data on it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have sent you, Ms. Pelosi, many communications as your constituents. None of which you have replied to. Here are federal receipts from recent mailings to you which have remained 100% unresponsive:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We report to Mr. James Comey and David Johnson at the FBI, The investigative groups at the FTC, the SEC, The EU, the GAO, The Congressional Ethics offices and over a hundred others, but it is YOUR JOB to help us solve the problem of having attacks placed on us by your colleagues and staff using our own tax dollars to do so.

 

Your top staffers John Lawrence and Amy Rosenbaum said their were “no problems with the TARP, DOE ATVM or DOE LGP funds” yet the facts prove that there was felony-class payola, crony kickback operations and insider trading going on in history-making volumes. The FBI raid of Solyndra and the House Ethics reports are part of hundreds of thousands of evidence element sources that can prove forensic proof in front of the public and/or a Special Prosecutor.

 

 

Since these crimes began, tens of thousands of new news sites (examples of a few: http://wearethenewmedia.com ) have emerged which reach tens of millions of voters, add millions more daily, and guarantee to Streisand-Effect the disclosures of each and every public official who engaged in the criminal use of the TARP, ATVM and LGP funds as a criminal slush-fund into the next century.

 

 

As you are by now aware, every stock market payola holding, off-shore tax evasion account and real estate payola asset of those politicians is being crashed and turned into negative assets. This is being done using 100% legal methods WITH the help of law enforcement agencies and the Press. By the time this is over, none of the corrupt politicians and Silicon Valley Cartel members “will have a pot to piss in”, as they say. Silicon Valley is having every single company who financed the scam, and rigged the internet for political corruption, exterminated with the simple and 100% legal use of epic transparency. The media and the voting public are doing it and it is 100% legal. You see Ms. Pelosi: Crime truly does not pay!

 

 

In one of thousands of emails to you, such as this one:

 

 

“Subject: [Aid4Mail Trial tag #140] Reply from Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi

 

Date: Mon, 10 Nov 2008 10:19:03 -0500

 

From: “Rep. Nancy Pelosi” <pelosi@mail.house.gov>”

 

 

 

…by The Lotus Notes Development Team; you were made aware of this incident over and over by huge numbers of the voting public and ourselves yet the only action you took seems to be to launch a stone-walling effort. Did you do anything else?

 

 

YOU need to pick up the phone and call us now and tell us how YOU plan to get us our restitution for the attacks your staff and colleague engaged in against us. YOU know exactly who did what and, if you are even slightly unclear on the issues, we will be glad to meet you across the street at the FBI conference room and go over the over one million pages of devastating evidence.

 

 

When can we expect your call?

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Trump Administration Promises To Expose Obama’s Use of Dept. of Energy as “Giant Criminal Slush-Fund”!

Donald Trump just drew a line in the proverbial sand. And President Barack Obama better simmer down very quickly, or face brutal consequences.

 

Trump officials made it clear late Thursday that if Obama continues to scorch America’s already-fragile foreign policy on his way out of the White House door, he will face sweeping federal probes when Trump assumes the presidency and control of the nation’s law enforcement apparatus.

 

True Pundit spoke with well-placed sources who have accepted new positions with the Trump administration. They agreed Trump and key members of his transition team are increasingly frustrated by the recent actions of Obama who just this week picked unwarranted international fights with Israel and Russia.

 

“At this rate the feeling is Obama will have to face consequences for what he is doing right now,” the Trump insider said. “We can take a very close look at him, (Valerie) Jarrett, (John) Kerry and his inner circle to see what they have really been doing, especially in the Middle East. And where the billions (of U.S. dollars) went.”

 

One source, a highly decorated intelligence official, said he has recommended investigating the details of Obama and Kerry’s nuclear agreement with Iran, including the millions in cash of ransom paid to release American hostages as well as untold billions paid to the Iranians “for no sound policy reasons.”

 

The Trump insider said such probes would include examining the personal finances of all U.S. officials involved in crafting the Iran deal, including searching for offshore bank accounts where illicit funds might be parked.

 

Trump believes perhaps U.S. officials personally benefited from the Iran deal, the insider said. He described Trump as perplexed why the deal was struck in the first place, and that the president elect thinks that illicit side deals were the motivation of Obama administration insiders to enter into such a lopsided and disastrous agreement with an unstable country.

 

Perhaps another good angle would be unsealing all of Obama’s personal records and see how his well-crafted narrative as the next John F. Kennedy quickly unravels.

 

Obama Orders Attacks On Matt Drudge and Drudge Report Says Media

US Government Attacks Drudge Report? Conservative Website Down Because Of Distributed Denial Of Service Attack, Matt Drudge Tweets

A tweet from conservative media icon Matt Drudge’s verified Twitter account Thursday night appeared to accuse the government of interfering with his website, DrudgeReport.com, just hours after the Barack Obama administration announced new sanctions against Russia over election hacking.

“Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT? Biggest DDoS since site’s inception. VERY suspicious routing [and timing],” the tweet to Drudge’s 457,000 followers read. There were no other tweets from the account at the time.

A large-scale distributed denial of service attack, or DDoS, can cause major Internet disruptions. In the past, such attacks have shut down major websites such as Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr, and Reddit. The attack sends a server many illegitimate requests to make it hard for real requests to get through, effectively shutting down the site. 

Drudge Report was down briefly around 7 p.m. EST, but working hours later. The top headline read: “MOSCOW MOCKS OBAMA ‘LAME DUCK'” Meanwhile, the conservative Washington Times wrote: “Matt Drudge suggests U.S. government cyberattack on Drudge Report website. DDoS attack comes same day Obama announced countermeasures against Russia for hacking of Democrats.”

Conservatives on Twitter also accused the government of shutting down the Russian news website, RT. “Numerous reports of Russian state-run Network RT being unavailable. Drudge Report also under ‘Biggest DDoS attack since site’s inception,'” wrote one user.

President Barack Obama announced Thursday sanctions against several Russian agencies and individuals after cyberattacks during the 2016 presidential election against Democratic Party institutions that appeared to help Donald Trump win over Hillary Clinton.

“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions. In October, my administration publicized our assessment that Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process,” Obama said. “These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government. Moreover, our diplomats have experienced an unacceptable level of harassment in Moscow by Russian security services and police over the last year. Such activities have consequences.”

Government officials have wrangled with Drudge before over his alleged false claims. With 2 million daily unique visitors and around 700 million monthly page views, DrudgeReport.com was the top site for referral traffic in 2014 to the Daily Mail, CNN, Fox News, Roll Call, Breitbart, The New York Times, USA Today, Associated Press and other news sites. Its readers were loyal, staying on the site for an average of 30 minutes, Politico reported. 

“People are religious in how they come to Drudge,” Vipul Mistry, Intermarket’s Business Development manager, told Politico’s On Media blog. “When we analyzed all our audience that’s what it is, people are on there not only in morning, they tend to leave it open as it refreshes.”

PRESS RELEASE: TESLA MOTORS NEW ANNOUNCEMENT

Why you should NEVER buy a Tesla, or anything that Elon Musk Makes!

 

 

 

  • If you have an ounce of morality, then you will not want to help Musk & Tesla profit from the crony political corruption that created them. Musk exists because he bribes politicians & acts as an illegal campaign financing conduit.

  • If you believe in God, or are in any way religious, Musk & Tesla are pure evil & exist because of hyper-corruption. You don’t want to contribute to their evil or be part of it in any way. You are funding evil & supporting criminal corruption by buying a Tesla or any Elon Musk owned product like Solar City, Tesla, Space X, Hyperloop, etc.!

  • If you read about the dirty deeds and cocaine dealings with the In-Q-Tel airplanes called “Cocaine 1” & “Cocaine 2”, & the corruption behind the company called In-Q-Tel & Musk’s software programmer who ran “The Silk Road” drug & murder service then you must be concerned that many In-Q-Tel people work for Musk. Why does Musk need dirty druggies & spies on his payroll unless he is running covert drug and business spying activities?

  • If you are a Democrat then know that Elon Musk cost you the Hillary Clinton campaign because of his payola schemes. If you are a Republican, know that Elon Musk is the epitome of the worst form of DNC crony corruption you ever saw!

  • Musk bribed California politicians to give him hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars & resources he never earned or worked for. He only got those crony payola perks handed to him because he operated as an illicit front for corrupt campaign financing for Dianne Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  • Multiple parties have filed “Demands For The Arrest of Elon Musk” with the FBI, DOJ, AG, FTC, SEC and other law enforcement agencies. It is not likely that Musk, or his companies will survive a full investigation.

  • Tesla and Solyndra sit on the same land in Fremont, CA. Solyndra was raided by the FBI for corruption. Tesla SHOULD be raided by the FBI for corruption. Both companies had kick-back crony payola schemes with Senator Dianne Feinstein. She owned the land, lease, HR, construction company and supplier interests and stock for both companies in one of the most massive conflict-of-interest crony financing schemes in U.S. history. Elon Musk and the Feinsteins are corruption partners.

  • People who see you in a Tesla think of you as a “Tone Deaf Douchebag”, “Tesla Tool!”, “Arrogant Prick”, “Ostentatious Obama Oaf”, “Sheep”, “Mindless Yuppie Scum”, “Misogynistic Silicon Valley Clone”, “Self-promoting Elitist Douche”, “Fake News Reading Main Stream Boob”, “Naive Idiot” or other bad things.

  • Elon Musk is one of the main financiers behind Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton, both of whom have been charged with corruption. Musk endlessly tweets lies & “…No I didn’t do those bad things” BS but nobody else supports him.

  • Tesla financial records are “cooked” in a fraudulent manner to make the stock market valuation of Tesla a falsely manipulated factor. Musk uses “pre-orders”, by his own investors, to fake sales and wrote emails to customers asking them to put small deposits down so he could book them as fully paid sales in one of a large number of stock and loan valuation frauds. Musk and his investors practice stock market skims, pump-and-dumps and Flash Boy manipulations.

  • Lithium ion batteries are blowing up, starting fires &, generally, destroying people’s homes, cars, electronics & physical health. Boeing was ordered to stop flying the 787 Dreamliner because it’s Lithium ion batteries are catching fire spontaneously. A group of silicon valley venture capitalists forced/leveraged the government to buy & pay for these specific batteries, that they have stock in, in order to benefit their profit margins. Other batteries don’t have these problems. They knew about the dangers from day one, but put greed ahead of safety. There are thousands & thousands of reports of spontaneous lithium ion fires but the VC’s who back lithium ion pay to keep this information hushed up. Millions of these batteries have been recalled for fire risk. The VC’s tried to push as many as they could before they got caught. Now they are caught. These VC’s & the Senators they bribed own stock in lithium mining companies too.

  • Tesla Motors has filed a patent which states the following , THESE ARE TESLA MOTORS WORDS warning about a crisis, the level of which they never disclosed to the consumer: “Thermal runaway is of major concern since a single incident can lead to significant property damage &, in some circumstances, bodily harm or loss of life. When a battery undergoes thermal runaway, it typically emits a large quantity of smoke, jets of flaming liquid electrolyte, & sufficient heat to lead to the combustion & destruction of materials in close proximity to the cell. If the cell undergoing thermal runaway is surrounded by one or more additional cells as is typical in a battery pack, then a single thermal runaway event can quickly lead to the thermal runaway of multiple cells which, in turn, can lead to much more extensive collateral damage. Regardless of whether a single cell or multiple cells are undergoing this phenomenon, if the initial fire is not extinguished immediately, subsequent fires may be caused that dramatically expand the degree of property damage. For example, the thermal runaway of a battery within an unattended laptop will likely result in not only the destruction of the laptop, but also at least partial destruction of its surroundings, e.g., home, office, car, laboratory, etc. If the laptop is on-board an aircraft, for example within the cargo hold or a luggage compartment, the ensuing smoke & fire may lead to an emergency landing or, under more dire conditions, a crash landing. Similarly, the thermal runaway of one or more batteries within the battery pack of a hybrid or electric vehicle may destroy not only the car, but may lead to a car wreck if the car is being driven or the destruction of its surroundings if the car is parked”.

  • Tesla’s own staff, & every fire department, have now admitted that once a lithium ion fire gets started in a Tesla, that it is impossibleto extinguish burning lithium ion material. This is Telsa’s own words in THEIR patent filing, (You can look it up online) saying that the risk is monumental. Tesla has 6800 lithium ion batteries, any one of which can “go thermal”, start a chain reaction and blow up all of the rest of the 6800+ deadly batteries! Tesla drivers have been burned alive in thermal globs of flaming lithium ion, plastics & metal. Bystanders have heard their horrific screams of unutterable pain & terror as they were burned alive! Tesla fires can’t be extinguished & the bodies are burned into “unrecognizable lumps of charred flesh”, according to fireman.

  • Lithium Ion batteries “go thermal” in peoples pockets, in your notebook, especially in a Tesla & Fisker car. There are tens of thousands of articles documenting this & there is a cover-up by the VC’s that fund these things to keep this fact out-of-sight. Making Lithium Ion batteries poisons the workers who make them. It is a dangerous product that is covered-up by the Obama Administration. Panasonic knows that these batteries are deadly.

  • Tesla only exists to exploit Elon Musk’s briberies. The lithium ion batteries blow up when they get: wet, hot, bumped, over-charged, struck by energy fields, exposed to air or squashed. Lithium ion batteries poison the Earth & that they poison & kill the workers that make them. Lithium ion batteries come from war profiteering in Afghan & Bolivian corruption.

  • Panasonic is Elon Musk’s partner. Panasonic is one of the most corrupt companies in the world. Panasonic has been charged, on multiple continents with: Product dumping, bribery, collusion, price fixing, anti-trust law violations, racketeering, worker abuse, toxic poisoning of workers, & other crimes. It is no wonder that Elon Musk & Panasonic are partners. Tata Motors executive Karl Slym was killed for exposing this fact.

  • Your tax dollars were stolen in order to make Tesla Motors, as part of a political financing kick-back scam. In other words, part of your paycheck was taken away from you in order to buy hookers, rent-boys & private jets for Musk & company.

  • Tesla are forged in criminal corruption, so anybody who drives a Tesla must be either ignorant, a weasel or one of the corrupt. The whole world now knows all of the facts in this list so you can never plead ignorance to these crimes.

  • Telsa’s have a huge amount of highly documented defects. The defects are so extensive that Tesla made buyers sign confidentiality agreements to try to hide how messed up their cars are.

  • Tesla’s have killed more people than the main-stream news has reported. The full Tesla death-list is covered up.

  • Musk lied about why he wanted to make electric cars, when, in fact, he actually poisons the environment because Tesla investors wanted to exploit toxic minerals & materials which can’t be recycled in a clean manner

  • No other electric car has been so mundane, & yet had so many problems with it, since the electric car was first sold in the 1800’s. There is nothing “novel” or “amazing” about the Tesla aside from dime store parlor tricks for PR hype.

  • More drunks have crashed Tesla’s, than any other per capita car in the world, per volume of cars made

  • Elon Musk’s co-founders, investors, partners, wives, investors, suppliers & employees have sued him for being a fraud &, essentially, called him an “asshole” in court records.

  • Elon Musk lied on this Department of Energy funding application and the Obama Administration refuses to allow any federal employees or witnesses to testify to these facts in public due to the devastating potential results of these facts.

  • More owners of Tesla’s have been found to cheat on their taxes, & be involved in abuse-based divorces, than almost any other car brand owner. Tesla owners are bad people who rationalize their poor life choices.

  • Elon Musk will lie, cheat & steal in order to self-aggrandize & glorify his egotistical mania. Musk has been documented engaging in over 100 lies which were later proven to be false. He has spent tens of millions of dollars to but fake news about himself on Twitter, Facebook & Google because he is such a mentally disturbed ego-maniac.

  • None of Elon Musk’s companies would exist if not for taxpayer funded handouts given to him by corrupt politicians in exchange for illegal campaign finance deals with him & his investors.

  • Google, & Tesla, who are financial & political partners, have both been caught spying on consumers & manipulating Internet data in order to cover-up their complicity in huge political corruption & kick-back deals

  • Musk took U.S. taxpayer dollars from the government & then hired cheap off-shore labor & fired U.S. Union workers & domestic workers. He lied to & screwed the NUMMI workers that were working at the Fremont plant.

  • Musk has put over 18 surveillance devices in the Tesla. Anybody can hack those devices & monitor you. WORSE YET, foreign agents have hacked the Tesla & taken over the controls & driven Tesla’s into bystanders & over cliffs.

  • When Erick Strickland was head of the NHTSA he was confronted about DOT safety cover-ups of the Tesla to protect Obama. He quit 48 hours later. The DOT safety cover-ups to protect the Obama campaign finance payola scheme continue to this day. Obama’s Gibbs, Emanual, Plouffe, Axelrod and Carney quit within a week of being threatened with exposure.

  • Tesla’s have had a large number of recalls but Elon Musk refuses to call them “recalls”. Tesla’s have had multiple recalls for SEVERE safety dangers. DOT has been told this, in writing, for years, but wont take action in order to protect Obama.

  • Elon Musk is a bullshit artist who has no original ideas & wears black-turtle neck shirts (like Elizabeth Homes) to try to create a “cult” around himself & convince the world that he is a “Jesus-like” figure when, in fact, he is a clinical sociopath.

  • Tesla is a severe public safety hazard that has been systematically covered up by corrupt politicians.

  • Tesla Motors batteries were promoted by those who wished to exploit the Afghanistan War for personal profit by controlling the Afghan lithium mining fields. Kleiner Perkins and Draper Fisher hyped the “…trillions of $ of lithium in Afganistan.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up on their own.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up when they get wet.

  • Tesla Motors batteries fires cannot be put out by any common fire-fighting resources.

  • Tesla Motors batteries set themselves on fire.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit cancer-causing vapors when they burn.

  • Tesla Motors Vehicles toxicity poison bystanders, nearby vehicular passengers, airline passengers in planes carrying said batteries in their holds, & environments where such incidents occur.

  • Tesla Motors batteries blow up when bumped by the same level of car incident that would, otherwise, only dent a normal car bumper.

  • In an accident, when a Tesla rolls over, molten metal & plastic can drip on & burn the occupants alive.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit brain damaging chemicals when they burn.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals, burning, or not, that can damage an unborn fetus.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause lung damage.

  • Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause liver damage.

  • Per published lawsuits & news reports, the factories that make Tesla Motors batteries have been charged with the deaths, & potentially fatal illness, of over 1000 workers & the poisoning of nearby towns.

  • Tesla Motors batteries become even more dangerous over time, particularly when tasked by electric transportation systems like Hover-boards & Tesla’s. The chemistry in a lithium ion battery changes to become more unstable over time.

  • Tesla Motors batteries were never designed to be used in automobiles. Tesla used non-automotive batteries in one of the most dangerous configurations possible.

  • Tesla Motors occupants experience higher EMF radiation exposure than gasoline vehicle occupants.

  • Elon Musk’s Space X vehicles & Tesla Motors vehicles have both had a higher-than-average number of explosions. This has caused outside experts to doubt Musk’s ability to place safety considerations over his need for hyped-up PR.

  • Leaked Sandia National Labs & FAA research videos dramatically demonstrate the unstoppable, horrific, “re-percussive accelerating domino-effect” explosive fire effect of the Tesla Motors batteries.

  • Tesla’s own “Superchargers” & home 3-prong chargers have set Tesla’s, homes & businesses on fire.

  • Consumer rights groups contacted Erick Strickland, the head of the NHTSA, & charged him with a cover-up. He quit days later. The NHTSA then issued a safety investigation request to Tesla Motors, which would have more publicly exposed these dangers, but the safety investigation was never under-taken due to White House requests & lobbyist bribes, from Tesla, which got the investigation shut down.

  • NEPA regulations for the Tesla NUMMI factory in California & the Nevada Tesla “Gigafactory” have been violated relative to environmental safety standards.

  • Tesla Motors vehicles are not “Factory Built” “like Ford” builds cars, as Tesla professes. They are hand built in small volumes & subjected to numerous defects. Blogs have documented hundreds of defects, as listed by Tesla owners. Tesla has lost at least one LEMON CAR LAWSUIT for defective manufacturing.

  • Tesla’s “showrooms” are often “pop-up” retail storefronts that are in tight-proximity retail centers, putting it’s neighbors at risk of total loss from fire damage.

  • Tesla Motors vehicles have been hacked & taken over. Their doors, steering, listening devices & navigation have been taken over by outside parties. Multiple Tesla have suddenly swerved off the road, over cliffs & into other vehicles, killing bystanders & Tesla drivers.

  • Three Tesla top engineers & two competing senior executives, all of whom had whistle-blown on Tesla, who were in perfect health one day, suddenly died mysteriously the next day.

  • Multiple employees, founders, investors, marital partners, suppliers & others have sued Tesla Motors, &/or it’s senior executives for fraud. Musk had nothing to do with creating Tesla. He ran a hostile take-over of Tesla from the founders.

  • In addition to suing him, many of his former staff & partners have described Musk as an “Arrogant Prick”.

  • If you think the above bullet-points are bad there are over a 1000 more. Find the book “Is Elon Musk A Fraud” online or visit https://stopelonfromfailingagain.com/ or thousands of other sites that expose the truth about Musk & Tesla!

HuffPo Turns On Obama: He Presided Over The “Destruction Of The Democratic Party”

HuffPo Turns On Obama: He Presided Over The “Destruction Of The Democratic Party”

In yet another “exit interview” earlier this week with David Axelrod, Obama took the opportunity to remind us once again just how awesome he is.  In doing so, he noted that he was “confident” he could have beaten Trump in 2016 and implied that Hillary lost, not because of his failures in the White House, but because she was lazy, complacent, boring and arrogant…although his word choice was way less direct and more on the passive aggressive side.

Apparently these passive aggressive attacks didn’t sit well with the Huffington Post’s senior political editor, Sam Stein, who appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe with some rare honesty about Obama’s political legacy.

 
 

“Yeah, I mean this was as much a dig against Clinton as it was Trump from President Obama.”

 

“You look at the destruction of the Democratic Party under Barack Obama’s leadership and you have to wonder, what was the political — what were the electoral benefits that he gave to the party?”

 

“He leaves them in a much worse position.  The states are decimated, they lost control of the House and Senate, the governorships are decimated.”

 

“Maybe [Obama] is a gifted candidate. He won election twice by substantial margins, but his legacy as a politician is a bit muddied by all that.”

Careful who you attack, President Obama, the HuffPo likes you but not if you’re going to attack their chosen one.

 

* * *

For those who missed it, here are the details of Obama’s interview with Axelrod from earlier this week.

The ever humble Barack Obama has just wrapped up yet another “exit interview,” this time with democratic political operative David Axelrod, in which he effectively throws the entire Hillary team under the bus for not connecting with voters while declaring that he would have beaten Donald Trump.

While recognizing that “a lot of people” now think that his whole “Hope & Change” mantra was nothing more than “a fantasy,” Obama said he was confident he could have “mobilized a majority of Americans” where Hillary failed because he is better able to articulate the message of “Hope.” The full interview with Axelrod can be heard on CNN.

 
 

“In the wake of the election and Trump winning, a lot of people have suggested that somehow, it really was a fantasy,” Obama said of the hope-and-change vision he heralded in 2008. “What I would argue is, is that the culture actually did shift, that the majority does buy into the notion of a one America that is tolerant and diverse and open and full of energy and dynamism.”

 

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama told his former senior adviser David Axelrod in an interview for the “The Axe Files” podcast, produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.

 

Somehow Obama still seems to be convinced that the American people are simply longing for a few more eloquent speeches from polished politicians rather than actual change in Washington.  That said, for some reason we doubt voters chose Trump for his “eloquence”…big league.

Not satisfied with simply reminding us once again that he would have beaten Trump, Obama also decided to take a few more parting shots at Hillary by basically describing her as lazy, complacent, boring and arrogant…not in those exact word, of course.

 
 

“If you think you’re winning, then you have a tendency, just like in sports, maybe to play it safer,” he said, adding later he believed Clinton “performed wonderfully under really tough circumstances” and was mistreated by the media.

 

“We’re not there on the ground communicating not only the dry policy aspects of this, but that we care about these communities, that we’re bleeding for these communities,” he said. “It means caring about local races, state boards or school boards and city councils and state legislative races and not thinking that somehow, just a great set of progressive policies that we present to the New York Times editorial board will win the day.”

 

Meanwhile, Obama also reminded us that he’ll use his retirement to recruit and develop “young Democratic leaders” including organizers, journalists and politicians and that, unlike previous presidents, he plans to be vocal in his opposition to Trump’s policies.

 
 

He said part of his post-presidential strategy would be developing young Democratic leaders — including organizers, journalists and politicians — who could galvanize voters behind a progressive agenda. He won’t hesitate to weigh in on important political debates after he leaves office, he told Axelrod.

 

Following a period of introspection after he departs the White House, Obama said he would feel a responsibility as a citizen to voice his opinions on major issues gripping the country during Trump’s administration though he would not necessarily weigh in on day-to-day activities.

 

“At a certain point, you make room for new voices and fresh legs,” Obama said.

 

“That doesn’t mean that if a year from now, or a year-and-a-half from now, or two years from now, there is an issue of such moment, such import, that isn’t just a debate about a particular tax bill or, you know, a particular policy, but goes to some foundational issues about our democracy that I might not weigh in,” Obama went on. “You know, I’m still a citizen and that carries with it duties and obligations.”

 

Obama’s first acts out of office, however, will be lower-profile. He said he’ll focus on writing a book and self-analyzing his time in office. Obama and his family plan to live in Washington while his younger daughter finishes high school.

 

“I have to be quiet for a while. And I don’t mean politically, I mean internally. I have to still myself,” he said. “You have to get back in tune with your center and process what’s happened before you make a bunch of good decisions.”

While we’re happy to see that Obama has de-emphasized the “Russian hacking” narrative in his official talking points, we continue to be stunned by his blissful ignorance to the true underlying causes of Hillary’s loss.

How The Silicon Valley Tech Cartel Rapes American Innovation

How The Silicon Valley Tech Cartel Rapes American

 

Innovation

 

 

 

By Allison Hunter

 

 

 

 

I interviewed Silicon Valley’s inventors. The stories are all tragically similar:

 

I worked 8 to 10 hours a day, six days a week for over 40 years and other’s made billions of dollars off of my work after they came by to see how to copy it….”

 

For those who say the creators should reap the benefits of their work and innovations, where are my benefits of my work? These same men came, copied, stole and laughed off any rebuke…”

 

Sony, Google and Kleiner Perkins owners and bosses dated me, (and f*cked me in so many other ways), solicited me, had me to their homes, came to my offices, and invited me to “show them my technology so they could see about ‘investing’ their venture capitol” funds in my companies. In 90% of the cases they came, they saw, they copied, they blockaded and they made billions of dollars.”

 

Not a single one of these Silicon Valley Cartel tech mobsters had a single bit of previous experience in the technologies that I had spent decades on before they copied them. They have been proven to have had no knowledge of, or full understanding of the technologies prior to our meetings. They simply copied others and never ever paid for the rights to copy…”

 

The biggest thief is Google. Google put it’s lawyer: Michelle Lee, in charge of the U.S. Patent Office so that she could help blockade any patents that Google didn’t want Silicon Valley inventors to get. The New York Times published an article about how Google’s Larry Page is “obsessed” with sneaking around at tech events and stealing inventors technologies. Google seems to have the moral code of an alley rat.

 

The Silicon Valley tactic involves sending an MBA graduate known as a “window-man” to harvest an entrepreneurs technology. In Silicon Valley these MBA idea bandits are called “Venture Capitalists” or “VC’s”. The VC comes to an entrepreneur, or has the entrepreneur send in a powerpoint, so that the VC can send the data off to a process called “due diligence”. At Kleiner Perkins and Draper Fisher, two highly self-promoted VC firms, “due diligence” often involves figuring out how the VC can copy the technology without getting caught. The VC’s have another person in their group copy the entrepreneur, rename the technology, author character assassination blog articles while black-listing the original entrepreneur and roll out their clone technology.

 

The VC’s do not even use their own money. They scam retirement funds and pension aggregates into given them your parents money to play with and Ponzi around their little schemes.

 

The facts, federal filings, dated and signed NDA’s prove that many of these big tech companies were absolutely not a matter of coincidence or “Silicon synergy” as Kleiner Perkins claims. It is clear that a number of these big companies came from outsiders who were not yuppie-enough, white frat-house-bro enough or Elite-family connected enough to get into the old boys club. The Eric Schmidt’s, The Vinod Khosla’s and the John Doerr simply said “Steal it” when they saw what they wanted.

 

The copy cat VC’s make certain that the entrepreneur is bankrupted and defamed so that he can never get funded, can’t compete and has no way to get the two million dollars in legal fees that it costs to sue the Silicon Valley thieves. The Silicon Valley Cartel has warned every high technology law firm that if they ever represent one of these ripped-off entrepreneurs then that law firm will get black-listed from any future contracts with Silicon Valley. This has forced many entrepreneurs to turn to Russian and Chinese law firms who will gladly sue Silicon Valley.

 

Of over 320 million Americans, only these thirty, or so, men, from the same club, frat houses and social meeting spots engaged in these same heinous activities over and over. These are the same exact men whose fraternity houses were involved in the take-what-you-want college rape scandals. These are also the same exact men who are involved in the high-end prostitute scandals. Notice a trend?

 

They are all connected to the same handful of people at Sony, Google, and Kleiner Perkins. The publicly available hacks of all of their emails and stock records prove that they conspired and colluded together. The forensic evidence proves that they all paid cash to the same small group of politicians in exchange for crony payola.

 

The FTC, SEC and Attorney General needs to bring crushing indictments against John Doerr, Elon Musk, Tim Draper, Larry Page, Eric Schmidt, Ira Erhenpreis, Steve Westly and the rest of the Silicon Valley Cartel for anti-trust and intellectual property theft mill operations. These men are a sad vestige of the past criminality that the previous administration promoted. The future must hold better for America.

Amazon Echo Is Used To Listen In To Your Home Conversations By Any Outsider

Amazon’s Echo devices and its virtual assistant are meant to help find answers by listening for your voice commands. However, police in Arkansas want to know if one of the gadgets overheard something that can help with a murder case. According to The Information, authorities in Bentonville issued a warrant for Amazon to hand over any audio or records from an Echo belonging to James Andrew Bates. Bates is set to go to trial for first-degree murder for the death of Victor Collins next year.

Amazon declined to give police any of the information that the Echo logged on its servers, but it did hand over Bates’ account details and purchases. Police say they were able to pull data off of the speaker, but it’s unclear what info they were able to access. Due to the so-called always on nature of the connected device, the authorities are after any audio the speaker may have picked up that night. Sure, the Echo is activated by certain words, but it’s not uncommon for the IoT gadget to be alerted to listen by accident.

Police say Bates had several other smart home devices, including a water meter. That piece of tech shows that 140 gallons of water were used between 1AM and 3AM the night Collins was found dead in Bates’ hot tub. Investigators allege the water was used to wash away evidence of what happened off of the patio. The examination of the water meter and the request for stored Echo information raises a bigger question about privacy. At a time when we have any number of devices tracking and automating our habits at home, should that information be used against us in criminal cases?

Bates’ attorney argues that it shouldn’t. “You have an expectation of privacy in your home, and I have a big problem that law enforcement can use the technology that advances our quality of life against us,” defense attorney Kimberly Weber said. Of course, there’s also the question of how reliable information is from smart home devices. Accuracy can be an issue for any number of IoT gadgets. However, an audio recording would seemingly be a solid piece of evidence, if released.

Just as we saw with the quest to unlock an iPhone in the San Bernardino case, it will be interesting to see how authorities and the companies who make smart home devices work out the tension between serving customers, maintaining privacy and pursuing justice.

How much face time will your news story get on Facebook? How many eyes will ogle it on Google? Too often, this is apparently determined not by whether the story is “fake” news or newsworthy, but by whether it’s politically correct. And it’s time to break up the Internet’s left-wing, information-conduit oligopoly. 

If “knowledge is power” and “The pen is mightier than the sword,” entities controlling what pens you see are powerful indeed. C that Facebook and Google “account for 75% of all the referrals major news and entertainment sites now receive,” according to a Politico report in July. 

ADVERTISEMENT

Facebook boasts a 40 percent share of the social media market and 1.5 billion users worldwide, making this Internet “nation” more populous than any country on Earth.  Upwards of 40 percent of American adults get news from the site.

 

Google accounts for 64 percent of all U.S. desktop search queries. In Europe, the figure is a whopping 90 percent. The company also owns YouTube, the world’s most popular video-sharing website.

How is this power used? Earlier this year, ex-Facebook employees admitted they routinely suppressed conservative news and were ordered to place relatively unpopular but company-favored (read: liberal) stories in their “trending” news section. And trending means mind-bending because people are influenced by what’s “popular.” Make an article appear more or less so and you can cause some readers to embrace it as “consensus” or dismiss it as a fringe view. It snowballs, too: prominent placement makes a piece more popular, which makes it more prominent, which makes it yet more popular, which makes…well, you get the idea. 

Now the social-media site — dubbed “Fakebook” by many — states it will label and essentially bury “fake news,” using as fact-checkers liberal outlets such as Snopes.com, Politifact and ABC, which themselves have peddled falsehoods (see here, here and here). 

And Google? In its June piece “The New Censorship,” U.S. News and World Report lists nine blacklists Google maintains. The site asks, “How did Google become the internet’s censor and master manipulator, blocking access to millions of websites?” Moreover, the search giant announced last year that it was considering ranking sites not just based on popularity (which reflects the market), but on “truthfulness” — as determined, of course, by Google’s Democrat-donating techies. 

Blacklisting can be devastating, too, as what befell two normal businesses illustrates. As U.S. News also reported, “Heading into the holiday season in late 2013, an online handbag business suffered a 50 percent drop in business because of blacklisting. In 2009, it took an eco-friendly pest control company 60 days to leap the hurdles required to remove Google’s warnings, long enough to nearly go broke.” 

Likewise, stigmatize a media website with blacklisting or, more deviously, by burying its result on the eighth search page (Web users generally examine only the first few pages), and you could dry up its revenue — and readership. Thus, this tactic sends politically incorrect views to Internet Siberia, where few will hear the dissenters except their fellow Google-gulag inmates. 

One victim was combative PC Magazine columnist John Dvorak, whose website and podcast site were blacklisted in 2013. This prompted him to ask, “When Did Google Become the Internet Police?” Answer: a long time before. In 2006, the company terminated its news relationship with some conservative news sites critical of Islam. 

So is it time to break up Facebook and Google? In principle, I may object to such things. But here’s the issue: if antitrust laws are unjust, eliminate them. But if we’re going to have them, they should be applied where most needed. As for Google, most people admits it’s “a de facto monopoly.” Libertarian tech investor Peter Thiel and ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer both think so, and even “Google chairman Eric Schmidt has admitted “we’re in that area.”

The breakup of AT&T’s Bell System was mandated in 1982. That came even without Bell denying service to people, blocking their calls or hiding their phone numbers based on the content of their conversations. The Internet and social media may be more like a party line, but that doesn’t mean they should reflect only the Democrat Party line.

Facebook’s Democrat Oculus VR Head Arrested For Attempted Pedo Sex Abuse On Young Girl

Dov Katz, head of the computer vision and machine learning group at Facebook-owned Oculus, has been charged in King County for attempted commercial sexual abuse of a minor. The 38-year-old tech exec allegedly attempted to contact what he believed to be was a 15-year-old girl for sex.

The fictitious 15-year-old was actually an undercover police officer with the Tukwila Police Department, a city just south of Seattle.

The news was first reported by KING 5, which said that Katz was arrested by Tukwila Police on Wednesday. Katz is to be arraigned on January 5th, and bail was set at $125,000. An Israeli citizen who resides in California, Katz is forbidden to have contact with any minors, except in the presence of a responsible adult, according to charging documents.

Katz allegedly responded to an online advertisement that offered sex in exchange for money, an ad which was posted by undercover police officer posing as a 15-year-old girl. Katz allegedly arranged a meeting at the Embassy Suites in Tukwila, offering to pay $350 to have sex without a condom. When Katz arrived at the hotel with $600 in cash, he was arrested by police.

Upon his arrest, Katz told the officer that he was there to rescue the girl, and should have first called police, according to charging documents.

We’ve reached out to Facebook representatives for comment, and we’ll update this post if we learn more. Facebook purchased Oculus — one of the leaders in virtual reality technology — for about $2 billion in cash and stock in 2014. Oculus operates a large engineering office in Seattle. Katz was profiled in a Times of Israel story in 2014 for the role he played in helping to develop the Oculus Rift headset.

Here’s how the charging documents read:

Hackers Get Into Clinton Foundation, Find Hillary Stealing Millions

Hackers Get Into Clinton Foundation, Find Hillary Stealing Millions

 

Infamous hacker, named Guccifer 2.0 hacked his way into the Clinton Foundation databases and uncovered some of the most damning evidence to date of the Clinton corruption. Here’s his message below and he got impatient and did some digging himself.  “Many of you have been waiting for this, some even asked me to do it. So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.”  And here’s what he uncovered.

So it’s a bunch of numbers. Here’s what all that means.  When Barack Obama demanded that congress approves more bailouts in 2009-11, it seems the big banks through the Clinton Foundation offered kickbacks to Democratic politicians, including crooked Hillary, to make sure the bailout was approved.  Somehow crooked Hillary also aided the big banks to bribe Democrat politicians. Guccifer wrote, “DEMOCRATS FUNNELED TARP FUNDS BACK TO THEIR PACS! That’s taxpayer bailout money that went right to the pockets of Democrat PACs!”  Yup. That’s right. Our money went right to the Democrats and their shady, back handed, back alley deals with the big banks. How are these people still running this country?  “Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server. It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds.”  This is exactly why we cannot allow this kind of corruption and fraudulent practice to continue in Washington. America is floundering and we have only the Democrats to thank.

 

Elon Musk’s Bankers Get A Pass For Financial Crimes Because Because “Obama Said So” to Hide Elon Musk From Indictments

DOJ Bestows ‘Early Christmas Present’ to Financial Giant Deutsche Bank

‘Some folks are going to prison, right? Oh wait, that’s just in the movies.’

German lender Deutsche Bank “got off easy” on Friday, having reached a $7.2 billion settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) over sales of mortgage-backed securities that fueled the financial crisis.

Of the $7.2 billion, just $3.1 billion is a cash penalty—the remaining $4.1 billion, economist Yves Smith explained at Naked Capitalism, is “promised ‘consumer relief’ as in ‘stuff maybe we’ll do in the future.'” Regardless, the amount is far less than the $14 billion originally requested by DOJ investigators. 

“For Deutsche it was certainly quite positive” because the hit to capital is “modest,” Kyle Kloc, a portfolio manager at Fisch Asset Management in Zurich who holds Deutsche Bank bonds, told Bloomberg. Supporting that assessment was the news that the bank’s shares rose on Friday following the announcement. 

Indeed, investigative journalist Nomi Prins described the settlement as an “early Christmas present” for the bank, while reporter and author David Dayen—who has written extensively on the mortgage crisis—blasted the deal in a series of tweets.

Among other things, Dayen criticized a spineless DOJ, pointing out that “this is the same crappy settlement they’ve done w/every bank.” The “DOJ has changed norms,” he said, “by turning these dumb settlements into a substitute for accountability.”

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) also took to Twitter to denounce the deal as “weak” and reiterate the perennial call for crooked bankers to see jail time. 

Meanwhile, many have noted that the Deutsche Bank settlement potentially “heads off” a major conflict of interest with President-elect Donald Trump—”whose businesses,” the Washington Post writes, “have borrowed more than $300 million from the troubled German bank.”

Still, not everyone’s concerns have been assuaged. 

“Despite this settlement, the criminal investigation of Deutsche Bank and culpable individuals must continue—and it should be done by independent counsel,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told ABC News. “Only an independent counsel can investigate and prosecute vigorously and impartially, in light of conflicts of interest created by the enormous debt owed by Donald Trump to the bank.”

Also announced Friday were a settlement with Credit Suisse, also over toxic debt, as well as a DOJ lawsuit against British banking giant Barclays over similar misconduct. “Barclays jeopardized billions of dollars of wealth through practices that were plainly irresponsible and dishonest,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement. “With this filing, we are sending a clear message that the Department of Justice will not tolerate the defrauding of investors and the American people.”

Could The Alien Radio Waves Be A Friendly Signal From Aliens or Bad Aliens Locking A Neutron Weapon On The Earth?

Are aliens trying to contact Earth? Six new mysterious blasts of radio energy are detected from deep space

  • Six bursts of radio waves have been detected 3 billion light years away
  • The detection follows 11 previously recorded outbursts from the same location 
  • The origin of the radio energy remains unknown, but researchers believe it may be from a young neutron star  

It may be three billion light-years away from Earth, but this distant constellation could be trying to contact us.

Six bursts of radio waves have been detected from the constellation Auriga, each lasting just a few milliseconds.

While the source of the waves remains unknown, some suggest they mysterious bursts of energy could be a sign of alien life trying to contact us.

WHAT ARE FAST RADIO BURSTS? 

Fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are radio emissions that appear temporarily and randomly, making them not only hard to find, but also hard to study.

The mystery stems from the fact it is not known what could produce such a short and sharp burst.

This has led some to speculate they could be anything from stars colliding to artificially created messages.

The first FRB was spotted, or rather ‘heard’ by radio telescopes, back in 2007.

But it was so temporary and seemingly random that it took years for astronomers to agree it wasn’t a glitch in one of the telescope’s instruments.

The waves were detected by researchers from McGill University in Montreal, using the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia, and at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

In their paper, published in The Astrophysical Journal, the researchers, led by Paul Scholz, wrote: ‘We have detected six additional radio bursts from this source: five with the Green Bank Telescope at 2 GHz, and one at 1.4 GHz with the Arecibo Observatory, for a total of 17 bursts from this source.’ 

The detection follows 11 previously recorded outbursts from the same location, called FRB 121102. 

This is the only known repeater of fast radio bursts (FRBs) – radio emissions that appear temporarily and randomly.

Despite there being a number of FRBs from the site, the origin of the bursts is an ongoing puzzle to researchers.

But the researchers say that the repeated outbursts imply that whatever is causing the radio bursts is not a one-time event, such as an explosion or collision.

Instead, they say that flares from a young neutron star – the dense core left behind where a star explodes – are a promising candidate. 

The researchers added: ‘Whether FRB 121102 is a unique object in the currently known sample of FRBs, or all FRBs are capable of repeating, its characterisation is extremely important to understanding fast extragalactic radio transients.’

Previously when waves have been detected, astronomers have also asked Seti (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to take a closer look at whether they could be a message from ET. 

But it is unclear if the McGill researchers will ask Seti to help this time.

If there are any intelligent alien life forms out there, Stephen Hawking thinks we’re playing a dangerous game by trying to contact them.

The physicist believes if aliens discovered Earth, they are likely to want to conquer and colonise our planet.

‘If aliens visit us, the outcome could be much like when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,’ he said in an interview.

But co-founder and former director of the Seti Institute, Jill Tarter, doesn’t think this will be the case.

She argues any aliens who have managed to travel across the universe will be sophisticated enough to be friendly and peaceful.

Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law to try to Save His Backers At Google

Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law to try to Save his campaign backers at Google

Tyler Durden's picture

Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.

In a statement, Obama said that:

 
 

Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”

Much of the balance of Obama’s statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo’s continued operation and warned that “unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history,” Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.

But while the passage of the NDAA – and the funding of the US military – was hardly a surprise, the biggest news is what was buried deep inside the provisions of the Defense Authortization Act.

Recall that as we reported in early June, “a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth had been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.

“Surprisingly,” Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”  

Long before the “fake news” meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on such discredited mainstream portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.

In short, long before “fake news” became a major media topic, the US government was already planning its legally-backed crackdown on anything it would eventually label “fake news.”

* * *

Fast forward to December 8, when the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.

And now, following Friday’s Obama signing of the NDAA on Friday evening, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law.

* * *

Here is the full statement issued by the generously funded Senator Rob Portman (R- Ohio) on the singing into law of a bill that further chips away at press liberties in the US, and which sets the stage for future which hunts and website shutdowns, purely as a result of an accusation that any one media outlet or site is considered as a source of “disinformation and propaganda” and is shut down by the government.

President Signs Portman-Murphy Counter-Propaganda Bill into Law

Portman-Murphy Bill Promotes Coordinated Strategy to Defend America, Allies Against Propaganda and Disinformation from Russia, China & Others

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) today announced that their Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act – legislation designed to help American allies counter foreign government propaganda from Russia, China, and other nations has been signed into law as part of the FY 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. The bipartisan bill, which was introduced by Senators Portman and Murphy in March, will improve the ability of the United States to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation from our enemies by establishing an interagency center housed at the State Department to coordinate and synchronize counter-propaganda efforts throughout the U.S. government. To support these efforts, the bill also creates a grant program for NGOs, think tanks, civil society and other experts outside government who are engaged in counter-propaganda related work. This will better leverage existing expertise and empower our allies overseas to defend themselves from foreign manipulation. It will also help foster a free and vibrant press and civil society overseas, which is critical to ensuring our allies have access to truthful information and inoculating people against foreign propaganda campaigns.

“Our enemies are using foreign propaganda and disinformation against us and our allies, and so far the U.S. government has been asleep at the wheel,” Portman said. “But today, the United States has taken a critical step towards confronting the extensive, and destabilizing, foreign propaganda and disinformation operations being waged against us by our enemies overseas. With this bill now law, we are finally signaling that enough is enough; the United States will no longer sit on the sidelines. We are going to confront this threat head-on. I am confident that, with the help of this bipartisan bill, the disinformation and propaganda used against us, our allies, and our interests will fail.”

The use of propaganda to undermine democracy has hit a new low. But now we are finally in a position to confront this threat head on and get out the truth. By building up independent, objective journalism in places like eastern Europe, we can start to fight back by exposing these fake narratives and empowering local communities to protect themselves,” said Murphy. “I’m proud that our bill was signed into law, and I look forward to working with Senator Portman to make sure these tools and new resources are effectively used to get out the truth.”

NOTE: The bipartisan Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is organized around two main priorities to help achieve the goal of combatting the constantly evolving threat of foreign disinformation from our enemies:

  • The first priority is developing a whole-of-government strategy for countering THE foreign propaganda and disinformation being wages against us and our allies by our enemies. The bill would increase the authority, resources, and mandate of the Global Engagement Center to include state actors like Russia and China as well as non-state actors. The Center will be led by the State Department, but with the active senior level participation of the Department of Defense, USAID, the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the Intelligence Community, and other relevant agencies. The Center will develop, integrate, and synchronize whole-of-government initiatives to expose and counter foreign disinformation operations by our enemies and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support U.S. allies and interests.
  • Second, the legislation seeks to leverage expertise from outside government to create more adaptive and responsive U.S. strategy options. The legislation establishes a fund to help train local journalists and provide grants and contracts to NGOs, civil society organizations, think tanks, private sector companies, media organizations, and other experts outside the U.S. government with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in foreign government disinformation techniques. This fund will complement and support the Center’s role by integrating capabilities and expertise available outside the U.S. government into the strategy-making process. It will also empower a decentralized network of private sector experts and integrate their expertise into the strategy-making process.

* * *

And so, with the likes of WaPo having already primed the general public to equate “Russian Propaganda” with “fake news” (despite admitting after the fact their own report was essentially “fake“), while the US media has indoctrinated the public to assume that any information which is not in compliance with the official government narrative, or dares to criticize the establishment, is also “fake news” and thus falls under the “Russian propaganda” umbrella, the scene is now set for the US government to legally crack down on every media outlet that the government deems to be “foreign propaganda.”

Just like that, the US Ministry of Truth is officially born.

Ivanka Trump out-Trolls even The Donald With Masterful JetBlue Incident

Ivanka Trump out-Trolls even The Donald With Masterful JetBlue Incident

 

 

How better to make the point that the Trump Presidency is not going to take advantage of things than to have billionaire boss gal Ivanka Trump NOT flying on the private jet, but, rather on cheap old JetBlue jets for regular folks?

 

Michelle Obama was notorious for using government jets for private shopping trips but the Trumps seem to have a different tactic.

 

Ivanka snugged up her comfy pants and drudged onto a “normal people jet”. The regular folks incident was highlighted by the outrage of an Anti-Trump passenger at discovering that the Trumps might be like normal folks.

 

Trolled, Trolled and Triple Trolled!

 

The press coverage and web impressions turned fully in Ivanka’s favor after the media settle-in!

An NHS Trust in England has refused to disclose how much it is paying DeepMind — an artificial intelligence company owned by Google — for the use of its “Streams” smartphone app.

 

The Royal Free London NHS Trust, which is funded by the taxpayer, said that “the terms of the agreement with DeepMind are commercially sensitive and therefore exempt under Section 43 (2) of the FOIA [Freedom of Information Act]” after Business Insider filed a freedom of information (“FOI”) request with the trust.

 

In the FOI response, Alison Macdonald, board secretary at the Royal Free, said that the trust could only disclose the figure “when it is satisfied that the public interest in withholding the information outweighs the public interest in disclosing it.”

 

The Streams app sends an alert to a clinician’s smartphone if a patient’s condition deteriorates. It also allows clinicians to view a patient’s medical records and see where patient’s are being looked after.

 

But DeepMind’s potentially life-saving work with the Royal Free has been criticised by privacy campaigners ever since New Scientist revealed that the company, which Google paid £400 million for in 2014, had quietly gained access to millions of NHS patient records, which contain information about things like a patient’s HIV status and whether they’ve ever been treated for a drugs overdose.

 

DeepMind, which now sits under Google parent company Alphabet, announced in February that it was working with the NHS but it did not make it clear that it had been given access to patient medical records. In November, DeepMind announced that it had signed a five-year deal with the Royal Free to significantly extend the partnership. The commercial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

 

DeepMind has built an app called Streams.Google DeepMind

 

Macdonald conceded that the trust’s “starting point” for revealing the financials was “in favour of disclosure” adding that it would help the trust to become more accountable and transparent. But she said disclosing such information may enable DeepMind’s competitors to “obtain commercially sensitive information thus causing prejudice to their commercial interests.

 

“In balancing the arguments for and against disclosure, I am satisfied that the public interest lies in maintaining the exemption.”

 

DeepMind has been making efforts to be more transparent in recent months but neither DeepMind nor the NHS want to talk about how much taxpayer money is going to DeepMind.

 

DeepMind would likely argue that many other technology companies don’t disclose the value of their contracts with the NHS, or indeed the extent of their data-sharing agreements. But Julia Powles, who works on technology law and policy at the University of Cambridge, thinks DeepMind needs to be treated differently.

 

“They are categorically different to another electronic healthcare provider,” Powles told Business Insider. “They try to analogise to [electronic health records provider] Cerner but they are not the same. They are delivering particular products for a segment of the population, but collecting and holding data on everyone.”

 

Powles is writing a report along the lines of “DeepMind Health and its dubious access to the highly sensitive patient records of millions of unwitting Londoners.”

 

DeepMind announced a similar partnership with Imperial College Healthcare Trust this week. The financial terms of that deal were not disclosed either.

 

DeepMind declined to comment.

 

The FoI response in full:

 

Dear Sam Shead

 

Further to your request for information please see the response below.

 

Your question

 

Please can you tell me how much the Royal Free is paying DeepMind to access its Streams app?

 

The response

 

The terms of the agreement with DeepMind are commercially sensitive and therefore exempt under Section 43(2) of the FOIA which states: Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including the public authority holding it).

 

In considering the request the trust has taken into account the guidance issued by the Information Commissioner on this subject.

 

This exemption is qualified meaning that it can only be used by the trust when it is satisfied that the public interest in withholding the information outweighs the public interest in disclosing it. It is accepted that the starting point is in favour of disclosure. Those arguments in favour of disclosure are that it may:

 

  • Facilitate the accountability and transparency of the trust for the decisions it takes

  • Facilitate the trust’s accountability and transparency for the public money for which it is responsible

 

The arguments against disclosure are that it may prejudice the commercial interests both of the trust or a third party, as follows:

 

  • Enable the competitors to a party with which the trust has a contract to obtain commercially sensitive information thus causing prejudice to their commercial interests.

 

In balancing the arguments for and against disclosure, I am satisfied that the public interest lies in maintaining the exemption. I am therefore satisfied that the information is exempt from disclosure under section 43(2) of the FOIA.

We hope that you will be satisfied with the information we have provided. If not you may ask us to conduct an internal review. If you wish to do so, please send us a further email, confirming what you would like us to review and include your reference number.

Elon Musk Is Delighted That Male Sex Robot with ‘Bionic Penis’ can last forever

Male sex robots with ‘bionic penis’ to offer ultimate pleasure experience

MALE sex robots with a bionic penis “better than a vibrator” will go all night long, Daily Star Online can reveal. Are Elon Musk and Larry Page secret gay lovers? Who cares, as long as they get off anyway they can!

Fellas aren’t the only ones excited by the prospect of artificial intelligence.

Real women can’t wait to wrap their arms around the cyborg lovers, sex experts claim.

Robot blokes will be armed with batteries and eventually will be able to be electrically charged to keep them going for as long as they are needed, top CEO of luxury sex doll company Matt McMullen revealed.

Verbal cues will be built into the cyborg so he can “respond” to her desires – such as “faster”, “slower” and “keep doing that”.

Sex robot MATTMCMULLENINSTAGRAM/GETTYPLEASURE: Robotics expert Levy said they will be ‘better than vibrators’

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, the sex robot pioneer said: “We’re going to be working into equation the ability to plug the robot in.

“If it’s got power and you’ve got it plugged in it will go as long as you want.”

Conversation and back stories are also vital for giving women the sexual experience they want in the bedroom, Matt added.

The robots will come in all shapes and sizes – with only the “sky as your limit”.

SQUEEZE: Women can’t wait to get their hands on sex robots, says Dr Levy

“He’s going to need hip movement – be able to actually ‘dance’ as it were”

Matt

Cyborg lovers will be able to carry their female lovers around just like a real man in the bedroom when technology allows it, he said.

“For the male sex robot to be effective, he’s going to have to move,” Matt added.

“He’s going to need hip movement – be able to actually ‘dance’ as it were.

“That’s going to make a bigger difference for women.”

RealDoll's Matt McMullen MATTMCMULLEN

TOP MAN: Matt is pioneering the first sex robot in the world

David Levy, of New York bestseller Love & Sex with Robots, also believes women will “absolutely” splash out on sex robots – he points to the “massive” number who buy sex toys.

Good looking male cyborgs are going to be more enticing than vibrators, the top robotics expert explained.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, he said: “I’m sure women will find robots equally appealing as men.

RealDoll sex robot MATTMCMULLEN

BEAUTY: But Matt believes the glamorous women models will still be the best sellers

“If women are that interested in getting satisfaction from a vibrator, imagine how the same women will feel having a robot they can put their arms round them and having the robot squeeze them.

“And do all sorts of things that vibrators can’t. A robot will look more like a human. It will have conversations.

“There is more to hold onto – you can put your arms round a body but you can’t put your arms round a vibrator.”

How The New York Times John Herrman and CNN’s Adrian Covert Accidentally made Donald Trump The President of the United States

“How The New York Times John Herrman and CNN’s Adrian Covert Accidentally made Donald Trump The President of the United States”

In between slimy character assassinations and low-ball hired opposition news screed, cabin boy cohorts John Herrman, now at the New York Times, and CNN lap-dog Adrian Covert like to tag-team on all kinds of scandal-mongering. Read the amazing story about how their hit-jobs on Trump, and a few other folks, actually caused them to put their biggest enemy in the White House and brought the New York Times and CNN to their lowest user ratings and created the fall of CNN and the New York Times…

Silicon Valley Cartel Convinced Hillary Clinton They Could Manipulate The Election For Her To Win: THEY BLEW IT

Guess Who Said This:

“…most power structures are deeply incompetent, staffed by people who don’t really believe in their institutions and that most power is the projection of the perception of power. And the more secretively it works, the more incompetent it is, because secrecy breeds incompetence, while openness breeds competence, because one can see and can compare actions and see which one is more competent. To keep up these appearances, institutional heads or political heads such as presidents spend most of the time trying to walk in front of the train and pretending that it is following them, but the direction is set by the tracks and by the engine of the train. Understanding that means that small and committed organisations can outmanoeuvre these institutional dinosaurs…”

Leaked Gawker Email shows Rough Waters Ahead For Gawker Media

The Gawker Media bankruptcy trial has provided almost as much scandal as Gawker’s defaming old self. With charges of Russian mobsters, financial fraud and political manipulations, you couldn’t ask for more fun. Take a look:

 

“Gawker Media, Gawker Sales, Gawker Facade, Gawker Media Group, Inc., Etc.

 

c/o Opportune LLP

 

Attn: William D. Holden

 

Chief Restructuring Officer

 

10 East 53rd Street, 33rd Floor

 

New York, NY 10022

 

 

 

Dec. 22, 2016

 

 

 

 

Bill:

 

 

 

It looks like you are saying you are the boss of the Gawker empire now.

 

 

It looks like you are not clear on the concept. Let us make it crystal clear.

 

 

Have you heard the term: “Payback’s a bitch”?

 

 

Keep that in mind as you read this letter.

 

 

Gawker was hired to “wipe us off the face of the Earth” because we assisted law enforcement and Congress in a criminal investigation of Gawker Media’s associates and clients.Gawker took compensation for engaging in those tasks and broke quite an epic number of laws doing so. Gawker was hired by the Obama Administration campaign bosses. The hacks, leaks, emails, texts, voice-mails and other evidence prove it. Your connection to criminal actions engaged in by Elon Musk, Eric Schmidt, John Doerr and Larry Page is substantial.

 

 

You hacked, made defamation animated movies, wrote a series of attack articles and fake blog comments, direct mailed all of it to every employer, investor, marital partner and associate we know, and that was just the beginning. You broadcast them to five billion people and locked them on the internet for 5+years.

 

 

Without breaking a single law, our alliance will wipe every future iteration of Gawker, and any entity who purchases Gawker off the face of the Earth. Every employee of Gawker will receive the most severe legally capable punishment per national laws in each nation in which Gawker was readable, for engaging in the attempts to kill the lives, brands, incomes, assets and resources of those they targeted. We will accomplish that without breaking a single law and WITH the help of federal law enforcement, U.S. Congress, the EU, over 100 million voters and the best journalists and forensic researchers in the world (who we already work with in the alliance).

 

 

We will use software that makes XKEYSCORE look like “pussy-ware” and it is entirely legal. Our stuff is even better than Peter’s Palantir.

 

 

You are not capable of imagining how much worse things can get, without breaking a single law. You are probably not able to imagine how a Solyndra, Enron, or other mega entity can be FBI-raided and then disappear almost over-night. We will be delighted to offer demonstrations.

 

 

The attached document called “CLEANTECH DEATH-LIST.PDF” was discovered online. All of the people on that list are certainly dead and they were all connected to this case. At least two of them told us they thought your Cartel was gunning for them. If you kill any more of us, please be aware that specialists have been pre-paid to take care-of-business after any more of us are murdered, if your group are the ones doing the murders. If you are not the ones doing some of these killings, as many have suggested, then maybe you could meet with us and Mr. Comey, copied below, to go over each and every name on that list and describe to the FBI why all of those coincidences only “representationally” point the finger at your Cartel.

 

 

Here is the clarity we promised you at the start of this letter: You pay us our restitution and end the tax evasion, drain-the-piggy-bank, financial money laundering, liability evasion scam you are operating or every single person and past employee will regret it for the rest of their lives.

 

 

We put the Trump Administration in office because they promised to double the resources of the FBI, GAO, FTC, SEC and the federal Ethics Committees. Unless you are a secret idiot, you can have no possible doubt about what is coming. We don’t break laws but we are very clever. We will help law enforcement hunt down every hooker, rent-boy, tax evasion, off-shore account, scam expense it, real estate fraud, trust-fund, political bribe, drug buy, web rigging algorithm, fake web traffic impression and every other item for the companies and ex-employees. We will do this to assist law enforcement with a faster path to your Gawker demise. GAWKER is the “swamp” that President Elect Trump “promised to drain.”

 

 

Your “Conspiracy theory” smoke-screen has been blown to dust by the over one million pages of evidence provided in this case and the related FBI Conspiracy FACTS. We have better things to do with our time but we will “go to the mat” (quoting Hulk Hogan) on this! Decide NOW! Do you want to end this or watch it play out for the rest of your lives?

 

 

Bill, stop fucking around and get us our money. Gawker is a criminal operation, do you, too, want to be on the WANTED list in the Post Office.

 

 

Thanks – Merry Christmas

The Man From I.N.Q.T.E.L.

 

IN-Q-TEL SPIES ARE PUBLICLY ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE WORKING AT ELON MUSK’S COMPANIES, ERIC SCHMIDT’S COMPANIES AND MARK ZUCKERBERG’S INVESTMENTS

 

The Man From I.N.Q.T.E.L.

 

Special submission to the Intercept by Rob Martin and S. Brown with The Guardian

 

Five tons of cocaine may seem like a lot of cocaine for a “501 C 3 non-profit charity” to have on it’s

 

airplanes but the little rogue Silicon Valley spy agency called I.N.Q.T.E.L. said that “it just couldn’t

 

imagine how it got there” or why I.N.Q.T.E.L. flight manifests had decided to name the airplane

 

“Cocaine One”.

 

Former editors at Silicon Valley’s TechCrunch say that “I.N.Q.T.E.L. is just an off-shoot of the Mark

 

Zuckerberg/Eric Schmidt scheme to try to steer defense money to Silicon Valley VC’s who funded the

 

Obama campaign. In fact, all of the Big Data technologies that Silicon Valley tried to push off onto the

 

Pentagon have failed on every front, found not a single terrorist ahead of time, been exploited by those

 

VC’s to spy on Americans for marketing and political manipulation and, got every major corporation

 

hacked by the Russians and Chinese and, generally, turned into one of the biggest social technology

 

disasters in history.”

 

Chris Byron writes in the The New York Post that he thinks that the THE SPY AGENCY SHOULD

 

CLOSE ITS VENTURE CAPITAL FIRM

 

“If former National Security Agency chief Michael Hayden hangs in there as President Bush’s nominee

 

to head the CIA and makes it to a Senate confirmation hearing, one of the panel’s members should ask

 

him this: “Sir, please tell the committee how much further you anticipate allowing the CIA to expand its

 

presence on Wall Street via the private venture capital firm known as In-Q-Tel, Inc.”

 

Hayden came under withering fire in Washington last week as word spread that the ex-NSA chief had

 

presided over the White House’s post-9/11 surveillance program of monitoring domestic U.S. telephone

 

calls. The White House, politically weakened from a year of setbacks both at home and abroad, may

 

decide to withdraw Hayden from consideration and submit an alternative nominee burdened with less

 

civil liberties baggage.

 

Yet whoever winds up in the CIA’s top job will inherit a developing mess involving In-Q-Tel that was

 

largely ignored by the agency’s departing director, Porter Goss. Hints that all is not well with In-Q-Telhave begun seeping into view as this little-known domestic CIA front operation continues to funnel

 

agency money into penny stock and micro-cap companies in Wall Street’s murkiest back alleys.

 

Two In-Q-Tel CEOs have resigned from the six-year-old venture capital fund in just the last four

 

months; the fund is being run on a day-to-day basis by a man from Washington’s politically greased

 

Carlyle Group who has been with In-Q-Tel for only a few weeks. Headhunters are said to be having

 

trouble coming up with candidates for a permanent replacement.

 

And there are even reports, largely unconfirmed, that the Securities and Exchange Commision is

 

looking into several penny stock promoters with ties to In-Q-Tel.

 

Launched in 1999 by CIA director George Tenet as a Wall Street venture fund to finance new

 

technologies for the spy world, In-Q-Tel quickly found friends on Capitol Hill, where policymakers

 

seized on the fund as a way to remind constituents that the ghost of Vietnam no longer walked the land.

 

The attacks of 9/11 gave In-Q-Tel even more stature in Congress, where the fund came to be seen as an

 

essential element in the war effort.

 

Yet the public’s visceral reaction to last week’s NSA revelations suggests that war or no war, a backlash

 

against government snooping may be starting. And that in turn promises to crank up the heat under In-

 

Q-Tel, where at least some of the fund’s investments raise questions of judgment regarding how

 

taxpayer money is being spent by the organization, as well as who it is choosing for business partners.

 

A year ago, this column drew back the curtain on a fishy In-Q-Tel in vestment, financed out of the black

 

box budget of the CIA, in a defense-sector start-up called Ionatron Inc.

 

Run by a longtime Wall Street regulatory violator named Robert Howard, Ionatron used a cash

 

infusion from In-Q-Tel to promote itself around Washington as the developer of a laser-equipped,

 

remotely controlled device the size of a golf cart that could patrol the highways of Iraq, ferreting out

 

and detonating insurgent land mines ahead of troop movements.

 

We warned in this space that the technology being trumpeted by Ionatron was not only unproven, but

 

had been obtained by Howard and some midlevel researchers at Raytheon Corp. under highly

 

irregular circumstances designed to persuade a West Coast laser researcher into turning over his

 

research to Howard’s group.

 

Nonetheless, Sen. Hillary Clinton and her Democratic colleague from California, Barbara Boxer,

 

quickly embraced the Ionatron program, which eventually devoured more than $12 million in

 

government funding before the Pentagon finally concluded last week that the devices are not reliable

 

and cancelled plans to deploy them.

 

Ionatron’s stock price has tumbled more than a third in the last three weeks, leaving the company’s

 

largest investor – prominent hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors, run by Steven A. Cohen of Connecticut –

 

sitting with millions in paper losses.

 

SAC Capital has acknowledged that it is under investigation by the SEC in what appears to be a

 

separate matter involving stock trading, and the SEC may soon start taking a look into the hedge fund’s

 

buying of Ionatron’s shares.

 

In-Q-Tel’s growing portfolio of investments includes a few successes. Yet the fund has more often

 

poured money into companies that were barking dogs long before In-Q-Tel showed up, and have failed

 

to improve since.

 

Consider a North Carolina outfit called ID Technologies Corp., which began life in 1994 as

 

CardGuard International Inc. to promote a fingerprint identification system no one wanted to buy. In

 

the four years that followed, the company racked up losses of $3 million on a mere $92,000 in

 

revenues.

 

In 1998, the company changed its name to ID Technologies and added $2.5 million more to the loss

 

column on barely $100,000 more in revenues.

 

Along the way, In-Q-Tel popped up with plans to invest $400,000 more in ID Tech, but the firm

 

collapsed, leaving investors with $5.58 million in cumulative losses and a stock that now sells for a

 

fraction of a penny per share.Another In-Q-Tel investment, in a data software company called Convera Corp., may be headed in the

 

same direction, bearing much greater losses. In 2004 the fund took a stake in Convera, which had yet

 

to turn a profit while piling up more than $1 billion in cumulative losses since its founding in the mid-

 

1980s.

 

By the end of 2005, a resulting bounce in Convera stock had topped out at $16, and the shares have

 

since lost half their value. Last week they were trading below $8 on investor disenchantment with the

 

perennial money loser’s latest offering: an Internet search engine for extracting information from video

 

files.

 

Because its funding comes from the CIA, In-Q-Tel has been an irresistible target for conspiracy

 

theorists who charge that the CIA is somehow linked through it to every penny stock that goes south.

 

Last week, one left-leaning Web site reported that SEC investigators think the CIA-backed venture fund

 

has been steering money into penny stock “pump and dump” firms in Israel, Dubai and Malaysia.

 

But a day’s worth of phoning around traces these claims to a tireless complainant named Tony Ryals,

 

who has been bombarding the SEC and Internet message boards for years with claims that he has

 

uncovered a submerged world of In-Q-Tel-linked fraud stretching for Kuala Lumpur to the Middle

 

East.

 

The alleged linkages are bewildering in their complexity and typically impossible to follow, but

 

conspiracy buffs find them irresistible, since they seem to echo some of the CIA’s worst excesses from

 

30 to 40 years ago, and by their nature, they can never be entirely disproved.

 

WHETHER the SEC has looked into Ryals’ charges and found them baseless isn’t known, but thanks to

 

In-Q-Tel and the lengthening shadow of the CIA on Wall Street, the most improbable of such claims

 

once again have a whiff of credibility.

 

Bottom line: There are many sensible ways the CIA could have gone about developing the technologies

 

it needs, but funneling money into Wall Street via an outfit like In-Q-Tel was never one of them. So it

 

will be a good thing for Wall Street – and for America, too – if the CIA’s next spymaster simply shuts the

 

operation down. (cbyron@nypost.com)

 

Bob Simon, of the CBS News 60 Minutes TV show, thought that I.N.Q.T.E.L. was a bunch of wanna

 

be’s from Stanford and Yale. The internet’s Corbett Report has produced numerous documentaries

 

which describe I.N.Q.T.E.L. as nearly psychotic fringe-mentality yuppie spies with their own private

 

agenda.

 

Thomas Ricks explains how I.N.Q.T.E.L. and New America Foundation, who are, essentially the same

 

organization want all war to now be fought by Silicon Valley technologies. Isn’t that convenient for

 

those Silicon Valley campaign financiers?

 

“The Future of War: A New America project looking at 21st century conflict. In the interest of

 

improving our national security, protecting our rights, and helping get us out of the endless “war on

 

terror,” the New America Foundation is launching a project on the future of war. Here is a look at the

 

initial thinking, which is liable to change as our various participants bring to bear their very different

 

areas of expertise. Plus, isn’t it time that there was a study of the future of defense funded by neither

 

the Pentagon nor the defense industry?

 

By the Future of War team, New America Foundation (Controlled by Eric Schmidt and Google)

 

Best Defense office of the future. Throughout history, changes in the conduct of warfare have been one

 

of the primary drivers of shifts in how societies and states are organized. Today, the evolution of

 

autonomous weapons systems, the emergence of ever more sophisticated surveillance technologies, the

 

militarization of cyberspace and outer space, and a range of similar developments are dramaticallychanging the nature of war — with profound implications for the nature of the international order, the

 

manner in which we control and constrain power and violence, and the nature of the state itself.

 

Few seem fully to grasp this, however. For the most part, these changes in the means and methods of

 

warfare are usually viewed narrowly, and understood as matters of interest mainly to specialized

 

communities of policy wonks, military planners, civil libertarians, or counterterrorism experts. As with

 

the story of the blind men and the elephant, many people are looking at different facets of the changing

 

nature of war, each trying to describe what they see (and often misunderstanding what it is they are

 

seeing). That’s not good enough: We need to look at the whole elephant.

 

With the United States still locked into a “forever war” paradigm that doesn’t comport with American

 

values or history, it’s more urgent than ever to understand the ways in which changes in the nature of

 

war both drive and are driven by changes in state-level, sub-state-level, and international policies and

 

institutions. At the same time states are developing unprecedented military technologies, the means of

 

mass destruction have been democratized: Today, terrorist organizations and other non-state actors

 

can cause damage and destruction on a scale we normally associate with states. Meanwhile, new

 

technologies are eroding old assumptions about sovereignty and state autonomy. Nonetheless, we still

 

operate mainly within a legal and political paradigm that draws sharp — if increasingly arbitrary–

 

lines between domestic and international matters, between states and non-state actors, and between

 

war and crime.

 

It’s increasingly apparent that existing legal paradigms neither provide adequate tools for responding

 

to new kinds of threats nor offer an appropriate framework for protecting human rights and human

 

dignity. As we move forward, we need to find a way to evolve beyond the post-9/11 state of perpetual

 

war — and we need to do so in a way takes into account these seismic changes, allows for an adaptive

 

response to evolving threats, and enhances the robust protection of human rights.

 

The New America Foundation is well positioned to sort out the thorny issues that arise from the

 

changing nature of warfare. Unlike most think tanks and NGOs, New America isn’t made up of

 

specialists having “insider” conversations with one another: lawyers talking to other lawyers, or

 

defense policy experts talking to other defense policy experts. Instead, New America connects the

 

worlds of law, technology, political science, history, policy, the military, the human rights community,

 

and the media, each of which often operates in isolation.

 

Core members of New America’s Future of War team include journalists, technologists, military history

 

and terrorism experts, human rights experts, and international law and defense policy experts. Our

 

individual and collective expertise and connections enable us to convene the most creative and

 

influential thinkers, writers, and decision-makers from these varied and often separate worlds; develop

 

bold conceptual frameworks combined with more specific legal and policy proposals; write and talk

 

about these intelligibly and interestingly; and attract extensive media coverage to our work and our

 

recommendations. The Future of War project is led by Peter Bergen, director of national security

 

studies at the New America Foundation and the author of several books. This series was drafted by him

 

and the team’s other members: Rosa Brooks, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Sascha Meinrath, and Tom Ricks.”

Google Makes Cash Money Profiteering On Holocaust denial say Jewish Experts

Google is profiting from Holocaust denial, says Jewish museum

Breman Museum in Atlanta says it is paying $2 a click to stop neo-Nazi site being top result for ‘did the Holocaust happen’

A Jewish heritage museum has accused Google of profiting from Holocaust denial because it is paying to prevent a neo-Nazi website from appearing as the top result for “did the Holocaust happen”.

The marketing director of the Breman Museum in Atlanta, Georgia, said it was “nauseating” that Google directed users to the white supremacist site, and added that it was paying Google up to $2 a click to direct searchers to its own site via AdWords, Google’s pay-per-click advertising service.

David Schendowich said it was nonsense for Google to claim that it was not profiting from Holocaust denial. “They may not take money from people denying the Holocaust, but the point is that museums and other organisations are paying to combat this stuff. They plainly are. We are. We’re paying them up to $2 a click.”

He declined to say how much the museum paid to Google but said search engine optimisation (SEO) and AdWords were a key part – and cost – of its marketing strategy.

The director of the Breman Museum, Aaron Berger, said that according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Georgia was one of the worst states in the US for active hate groups and using AdWords was an “incredibly important part of our approach in getting our site up the search results”.

A Google spokesman said last week: “We never want to make money from searches for Holocaust denial and we don’t allow regular advertising on those terms.”

The Observer paid Google to take out advertisements pointing to the Wikipedia entry on the Holocaust for a number of Holocaust searches, spending £550 in just over two days. On Monday, Google offered to refund the money. The Observer declined the offer.

It comes after an intense three weeks of pressure on the company regarding its search results. It has consistently refused to take responsibility for directing Google users to hate content including a neo-Nazi site, Stormfront, for a search for “did the Holocaust happen”.

Leading academics said it was probably holding firm because to “edit” content on one subject would lead to calls to take action over other controversial topics. Frank Pascale, professor of law at the University of Maryland, said it would be a tacit admission that it was a publishing company and not a “neutral” platform, as it maintains.

On Tuesday, however, Google told a search industry website it had decided to make a major algorithmic change to combat the problem.

In a story, headlined Official: Google makes change, results are no longer in denial over ‘Did the Holocaust happen?’ a Google spokesman said the company had recently made “improvements to our algorithm that will help surface more high quality, credible content on the web”.

But Barry Schwartz, the founder of Search Engine Roundtable, a long-standing industry site, said: “There is no evidence of any change to the algorithm. We track these things very carefully and there’s nothing to suggest they have done anything.”

When asked why he thought Google had made the announcement at this time, he said: “It just seems like it must be a PR thing. That’s the only explanation I can see.”

Schendowich of the Berman Museum said Google was critical in getting the museum’s message about the Holocaust out: “Search is everything. It’s so powerful. People don’t respond to print. If you don’t show in search you are invisible.”

Its website does not show up on the first page of Google’s “natural” – ie not-paid for – search results for “Did the Holocaust happen”. Schendowich said the museum used very aggressive SEO techniques but it was hard because “Google is a big mystery. It’s a black box. Nobody knows how it works. Only Google.”

It therefore paid Google to come higher up the search results than sites such as Stormfront via AdWords by targeting certain search terms.

“We can’t afford to advertise that much because this is a very expensive search. It’s expensive because it’s popular. That’s how it works. You pay more to advertise Nike shoes than some other brand. This is the same. It’s a very hot topic and what bothers me is that a denier site is right at the top. It’s nauseating. Absolutely nauseating. I talk to so many people who survived it … it did happen. We have all the evidence. That’s what we’re doing. That’s why it’s so important.”

A Google spokesman said: “We have no interest in profiting from sites or organisations that promote hate, which is why we ban them from using our ads systems. Under some circumstances we allow advertising against offensive terms, typically by organisations whose mission involves educating people about the issues. Those organisations can and do apply for Ad Grants – free advertising to drive awareness and promote educational messages. We give hundreds of millions of dollars worth of free advertising to non-profit organisations through our Ad Grants programme.”

THE LONG STRANGE STORY OF WIKILEAKS REVEALED ON VOAT

Bad title, sorry. Seems like I am actually way behind, and there is alot going on here. I’ll post a summary from the thread because, this is mostly technical information on decoding the leaks.

edit: been looking over this information for awhile now. I have minimal programming knowledge. So this could be adults playing pretend for all i know. Wikileaks has been strange lately to say the least. May not know anything until Snowden or someone prolific pipes up. This is possibly bad info YOU HAVE BEEN WARNEDminimal

 

 

[–] TFP191 [S] 30 points (+31|-1) 4 hours ago 

if you read the threads inside that png you will able to see everything that happened that was saved before deletion. rushed summary:

oct 17: strange activity is noticed at the embassy, first responders investigate, periscope is killed, twitter goes full orwell, archive.org is changed to no longer save sites properly.something that is instantly deleted is posted several times on pleddit, halfchan, fullchan, onion links and darkweb. it is all wiped. people regroup in several places since there is no way to post without threads being deleted or sites going down. a lot end up here.

oct 21: as the director of wikileaks is dying a huge ddos takes down most sites. blockchain is attacked. lot of stuff gets deleted.

oct 24: someone finds the wikileaks backups in the blockchain and posts instructions and code to decode the data.

oct 27: the deletions get too severe. sites begin being flooded with illegal content or going down. people create their own private channel to discuss progress. the keys and all hidden data in the blockchain are found. the group pushes the information into a few cryptocurrencies. blockchain is flooded. mempool graphs now have a giant spike on oct 27. soft fork for bitcoin begins. onion threads with the info get instantly wiped. everyone involved goes silent except one of two people. this group is then referred to as ‘group 1’. first finding of the keys as ‘first impact’. few days later: one of the people following the progress of group 1 starts teaching others how to retrace the steps.

late oct: people figure out that unlocking the data gets you xkeyscored’d making you lose internet connection and makes sites get attacked if the stuff is not deleted.

early nov: focus changes to teaching others how to find the information on airgapped computers to avoid deletion and sacrificing public channels of communication. threads that have progress start being flooded with illegal content every morning.

nov 8: wikileaks.org begins being changed. some files are deleted. checksum hashes start not matching older backups.

some point in nov: irs asks bitcoin to give them the identities of all transactions. copies of the blockchain start showing ‘undecodable’ or empty transactions not seen before.

mid nov: ‘group 2’ doxxes the people pretending to be wikileaks and tried to spread more detailed instructions for getting the files. posts did not last more than a few minutes. it seems like they tried to push to blockchain but apparently the data did not make it in. group 2 goes silent. they start calling this day the ‘second impact’. Anonymous 12/21/2016 (Wed) 01:05:45 [Preview] No. 120 [X] del >>121

119 nov 25: third impact. files are found by a new group that seems to not be american. they post instructions all the place but they don’t last more than a few hours. they tried to encode data into cryptocurrencies but it is not clear if it made it. this day is the second spike visible on the mempool graph.

at some point after this people agree to stop using the endchan thread for this because admins have to deal with too much illegal content floods and site going down. it becomes clear that any channel used to discuss this is ‘sacrificed’, in other words, it starts going down a lot, they flip the mods, deletion, illegal spams, etc. this thread is created for that reason. you can figure out what is special about this thread if you read the logs in the png. most progress after this point is exclusively on channels with no logs on darkweb. most of these eventually go down. the endchan thread is eventually locked. everyone that posted is blocked to this day. it is then deleted.

dec: planning for d-day begins. all holding groups spend all of december teaching others how to find the files.

mid dec: someone allegedly speaking on behalf of appelbaum posts links to code he wrote to find and repair keys in memory. new teams are told to use it. obama starts talking about a cyber war with russia.

dec 18: files are found in japan. a meshnet using ps3s is created to spread the files but it does not seem to last too long.

dec 19: d-day. happenings all over the world. most ISPs, torrent communities and major sites go down. wikileaks releases a new insurance file. uk, ec, and us insurance files from before no longer show on wikileaks.org unless you have IPs from specific countries. it is one of the biggest internet outages in history and it is not reported in a single news site that i have been able to find. holding groups go silent. some members are now trying to find their old teams.

tl;dr blockchain has backups for all wikileaks files since 2013. it also has checksum hashes and upload proofs for all files. there is a lot of stuff in there that triggers xkeyscore or echelon and is virtually impossible to share or even talk about. three months have been spent trying to teach others how to recreate the steps. there is a noticeable pattern. group finds it, start teaching others how to do it, then everything is deleted and people go silent. then a new group finds the breadcrums and starts over. it’s not clear what happened yesterday or what will happen next but there are people from all the world trying to investigate. at this point and there is no part of the internet where it is allowed

This is why you should NOT download the torrents announced over the Twitter account until Julian is proven alive by showing himself.

All the audio interviews can be easily faked with modern software, including any unique maneurisms. There was a visual interview a while ago, but it was very odd as you could see his collar changing as the visual was tweened between frames.

[–] SadByzantineJesus 1 points (+1|-0) 28 minutes ago 

it has been my assumption that nations have the ability to decrypt most anything thus making the insurance file something that will inevitably be broken. It would just be a matter of time. Maybe I misunderstand the insurance file and associated keys?

 

 

[–] ashekchum 0 points (+0|-0) 3 minutes ago 

If that where the case they would likely have been anonymously released already. If the information didn’t have anything implicating them, or maybe China would trust the firewall and do it anyways. Or they would only release snipits to media than would help them.

I think the keys are still good, for now. Probably in 10-15 years they will discover a problem in the crypto program like usual and be able to brute force the key. Thus stuff would be high priority info so nationd have likely already tried to break it.

GOOGLE EXPOSED AS A SPY OPERATION AND CULT BY EMPLOYEE LAWSUIT

‘Don’t send an e-mail that says I think we broke the law’: Lawsuit describes how Google allegedly enforces its culture of extreme secrecy

binoculars races men watching spying They’re watching you Alan Crowhurst/Getty Images

The Silicon Valley tech giants are notorious for their secrecy — and thanks to a new lawsuit, we’ve got a new window into exactly how that secrecy is enforced.

Google is being sued by an unnamed San Francisco employee who works as a product manager for the company, who claims he has been falsely blamed for leaking information to the press.

The case alleges that Google violates Californian labor laws on a number of grounds, and was first reported on by The Information, which estimates that the search giant could be fined up to $3.8 billion if all the allegations were upheld as affecting all 65,000 employees.

You can read the full legal filing by “John Doe’s” lawyers below, but we’ve also broken out some of the most fascinating tidbits, from Google encouraging its employees to snitch on one another to restrictions on novel-writing.

In a statement, a Google spokesperson said: “We will defend this suit vigorously because it’s baseless. We’re very committed to an open internal culture, which means we frequently share with employees details of product launches and confidential business information. Transparency is a huge part of our culture. Our employee confidentiality requirements are designed to protect proprietary business information, while not preventing employees from disclosing information about terms and conditions of employment, or workplace concerns.”

Googlers allegedly can’t talk about *anything*

Much of the case centres around a confidentiality agreement that new Google employees — “Googlers” — have to sign. “It informs Googlers that they cannot disclose ‘confidential information’ to anyone,” the lawsuit alleges, “even to an attorney or the government.”

But what is “confidential information”? Just about everything, apparently. The agreement defines it as “without limitation, any information in any form that relates to Google or Google’s business that is not generally known,” including “employee data.”

That’s everything from what the Googler worked on to their team members and their salary. Employees who disclose “confidential information “may be terminated, held personally liable, or subject to prosecution,” according to documents quoted by the lawsuit.

According to the suit, another “confidential” code of conduct policy warns employees that “it’s also a bad idea to post your opinions or information about Google on the Internet, even if not confidential, unless you’re authorized to do so as part of your job. . . . And never discuss the company with the press unless you’ve been explicitly authorized to do so by Corporate Communications.”

Google employees also cannot talk to members of the press “without prior clearance from Google’s communications team.”

Google employees are allegedly told not to talk about potential wrongdoing or illegality at the company

One startling allegation in the case is that Google instructs its employees not to talk about potential wrongdoing or illegality about the company, even to other Google employees and lawyers. Here’s a quote from the court document, emphasis ours:

“Google restricts what Googlers say internally in order to conceal potentially illegal conduct. It instructs employees in its training programs to do the following: ‘Don’t send an e-mail that says ‘I think we broke the law’ or ‘I think we violated this contract.” The training program also advises employees that they should not be candid when speaking with Google’s attorneys about dangerous products or violations of the law. The program advises Googlers that some jurisdictions do not recognize the attorney-client privilege, and ‘Inside the U.S., government agencies often pressure companies to waive the privilege.’ Google advises Googlers that they ‘should write e-mails with the assumption that somebody outside of Google, who may not be friendly to us, will get to read it.’

Similarly, a training program called “You Said What?” allegedly “instructs Googlers to suppress information about dangerous products. Google also specifically advises Googlers to delete paragraphs from emails that suggest there are serious flaws in Google technology, that Google may be sued, or that there may be product liability damages.”

Google employees need to get approval to write some fictional novels

The rules about what Google employees can and can’t say are so strict that they are allegedly even barred from writing fictional novels about tech companies in Silicon Valley without the approval of Google, and without letting Google sign-off on the final draft. This is from the suit:

“Google not only prohibits employees from speaking about Google, it also prohibits employees from writing creative fiction. Among other things, Google’s Employee Communication Policy prohibits employees from writing “a novel about someone working at a tech company in Silicon Valley” unless Google gives prior approval to both the book idea and the final draft.”

The company allegedly has a “spying unit” and encourages employees to snitch on each other

The lawsuit also discusses how leaks and whistleblowing at Google is monitored and investigated by a “Global Investigations Team,” headed up by Brian Katz, a former special agent at the US State Department.

This team “conducts ‘interviews with the subjects of investigations, as well as the victims and witnesses,'” the lawsuit says. “It ‘provides recommendations regarding discipline for these infractions when requested.’ The Global Investigations Team also relies on ‘volunteers’ to report other employees who might have disclosed any information about Google.”

In other words, it tracks down leaks, and encourages employees to snitch if they suspect each other of leaking.

Google wants employees to report “suspicious activity”

Someone asking probing questions about Google? Report it.

“Google also asks Googlers to file ‘suspicious activity reports,’ which Google states can include ‘strange things you observe or strange things that happen to you — like someone asking you really detailed questions about your project or job,'” the court document says.

Employees who “inadvertently” leak information are encouraged to confess

An employee program called “Stopleaks” aims to track down and prevent future leaks, according to the documents — and anyone who “inadvertently” leaks information is apparently encouraged to confess. Here’s a Google memo quoted by the court documents:

“Non-malicious leaks happen when an employee shares information with an external person they trusted, and other times internal and confidential information is accidentally marked public. If you know you were inadvertently responsible for a leak, let us know quickly by emailing stopleaks@. We understand that mistakes happen!”

Another interesting tidbit: Google employees allegedly have access to a special Stopleaks Chrome browser extension they can use to report potential leaks. And this isn’t voluntary — they are apparently “required under Google policies to report ‘leaks’ to Stopleaks.”

Google argues that leaks go against its “community” ethos

Google allegedly argues that leaks aren’t just bad for the business — they’re bad for the kind of community it wants to nurture. Brian Katz, the head of the Global Investigations Team, allegedly emailed this message to employees:

“If you’re considering sharing ‘confidential information’ to a reporter — or to anyone externally — for the love of all that’s Googley, please reconsider! Not only could it cost you your job, but it also betrays the values that makes us a community.”

On other occasions, an (unnamed) Google cofounder told Google employees at all-hands meetings that anyone caught leaking would be fired.

NOW WATCH: Why pizzas come with that plastic table in the center

The Facebook Prostitute Scandal

This is who FACEBOOK has hired to morally decide which news to CENSOR for you!

 

EXCLUSIVE: Facebook ‘fact checker’ who will arbitrate on ‘fake news’ is accused of defrauding website to pay for prostitutes – and its staff includes an escort-porn star and ‘Vice Vixen domme’

  • Facebook has announced plans to check for ‘fake news’ using a series of organizations to assess whether stories are true 
  • One of them is a website called Snopes.com which claims to be one of the web’s ‘essential resources’ and ‘painstaking, scholarly and reliable’ 
  • It was founded by husband-and-wife Barbara and David Mikkelson, who used a letterhead claiming they were a non-existent society to start their research 
  • Now they are divorced – with Barbara claiming in legal documents he embezzled $98,000 of company money and spent it on ‘himself and prostitutes’ 
  • In a lengthy and bitter legal dispute he is claiming to be underpaid and demanding ‘industry standard’ or at least $360,000 a year
  • The two also dispute what are basic facts of their case – despite Snopes.com saying its ‘ownership’ is committed to ‘accuracy and impartiality’ 
  • Snopes.com founder David Mikkelson’s new wife Elyssa Young is employed by the website as an administrator 
  • She has worked as an escort and porn actress and despite claims website is non-political ran as a Libertarian for Congress on a ‘Dump Bush’ platform 
  • Its main ‘fact checker’ is Kimberly LaCapria, whose blog ‘ViceVixen’ says she is in touch with her ‘domme side’ and has posted on Snopes.com while smoking pot

One of the websites Facebook is to use to arbitrate on ‘fake news’ is involved in a bitter legal dispute between its co-founders, with its CEO accused of using company money for prostitutes.

Snopes.com will be part of a panel used by Facebook to decide whether stories which users complain about as potentially ‘fake’ should be considered ‘disputed’.

But the website’s own troubles and the intriguing choice of who carries out its ‘fact checks’ are revealed by DailyMail.com, as one of its main contributors is disclosed to be a former sex-blogger who called herself ‘Vice Vixen’.

Snopes.com will benefit from Facebook’s decision to allow users to report items in their newsfeed which they believe to be ‘fake’.

It is asking a number of organizations to arbitrate on items which are reported or which Facebook staff think may not be genuine, and decide whether they should be marked as ‘disputed’.

The others include ABC News, the Associated Press and ‘fact-checking’ websites including Politifact.com.

Now a DailyMail.com investigation reveals that Snopes.com’s founders, former husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson, are embroiled in a lengthy and bitter legal dispute in the wake of their divorce.

He has since remarried, to a former escort and porn actress who is one of the site’s staff members.

They are accusing each other of financial impropriety, with Barbara claiming her ex-husband is guilty of ’embezzlement’ and suggesting he is attempting a ‘boondoggle’ to change tax arrangements, while David claims she took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas.

The Mikkelsons founded the site in 1995. The couple had met in the early 1990s on a folklore-themed online message board, and married before setting up the site.

Profiles of the website disclose that for some time before it was set up, the couple had posed as ‘The San Fernardo Valley Folklore Society’, using its name on letterheads, even though it did not exist.

A profile for the Webby Awards published in October describes it as ‘an entity dreamed up to help make the inquiries seem more legit’.

David Mikkeleson told the Los Angeles Times in 1997: ‘When I sent letters out to companies, I found I got a much better response with an official-looking organization’s stationery.’

In 2015, their marriage ended in divorce – but a bitter legal dispute continues.

Both stayed on as co-owners of Snopes – which is registered under its legal name of Bardav, Inc. and were its sole board members.

Legal filings seen by DailyMail.com detail a lengthy financial and corporate dispute which stretches long after their divorce, and which one lawyer describes as ‘contentious’ in court documents.

In the filings, Barbara, 57, has accused her former husband, 56, of ‘raiding the corporate business Bardav bank account for his personal use and attorney fees’ without consulting her.

She also claimed he embezzled $98,000 from the company over the course of four years ‘which he expended upon himself and the prostitutes he hired’.

When contacted by the Dailymail.com, David said he was legally prohibited from discussing his ex-wife’s allegations.

‘I’d love to respond, but unfortunately the terms of a binding settlement agreement preclude me from publicly discussing the details of our divorce,’ he said. Barbara Mikkelson said: ‘No comment.’

In court records, Barbara alleged that her ex-husband removed thousands from their business accounts between April and June of 2016 to pay for trips for him and his ‘girlfriend’.

She claimed he spent nearly $10,000 on a 24-day ‘personal vacation’ in India this year and expensed his girlfriend’s plane ticket to Buenos Aires.

‘He’s been depleting the corporate account by spending monies from it on his personal expenses,’ said Barbara in a filing last June.

First wife: Lawyers in court documents described Barbara Mikkelson's split from David, with whom she co-founded the Snopes.com website, as contentious.

She added that he needed to be suspended from using the company checkbook and debit card ‘right away before there are no funds left in the corporate account’.

David and his attorneys countered that the India visit was a legitimate business trip, and that he only expensed a fraction – 22.5 per cent – of the total cost of the excursion.

He said he was considering setting up a fact-checking website in India, and wanted to get a sense of the culture. He also said he went to Buenos Aires to attend an international fact-checking conference.

Meanwhile, his attorneys blasted Barbara as ‘a “loose cannon” who simply must have her way’.

One major point of contention was David’s 2016 salary – which Barbara was responsible for approving.

David wanted his salary raised from $240,000 to $360,000 – arguing that this would still put him below the ‘industry standards’ and that he should be paid up to $720,000 a year.

‘As I said, based on industry standards and our revenues, my salary should be about 2x to 3x what it is now,’ he wrote in an email to Barbara in April 2016. ‘I’ll settle for $360K with the understanding that it’s to be retroactive to the start of the year.’

Barbara responded that his request was ‘not even in the galaxy of reasonable’.

So bitter was the dispute, that they even fell out over the arbiter they had appointed to settle disputes, meaning that Facebook’s arbiter cannot even agree on its own arbiter.

The court papers also detail the substantial financial rewards ‘fact-checking’ brought the former couple – and how they have even fallen out over remuneration.

The divorce settlement stipulated that David Mikkelson receive a salary of $240,000 a year in 2015, while both of the former couple were due to receive $20,000 a month as a draw against profits, as well as a share of any net profit the company made after those payments.

The settlement also noted: ‘Each party waives his or her claim upon Bardav’s revenues received by Husband into his PayPal account and spent by him, accountant’s fees for restating tax returns to reflect previously unreported income…’

The nature of those revenues and fees, and of the unreported income is not disclosed.

The settlement saw savings, IRAS and stockholdings of well over $1.5 million given to Barbara, while she renounced claim on their marital home in Calabasas, California, in return for a payment of $660,000.

David kept their joint baseball card collection, a savings account with $1.59 million balance, and other savings worth more than $300,000. They also agreed to split the company checking account’s $240,000 balance at the end of 2015 after his salary had been paid and a $50,000 float left.

They later increased the $20,000 monthly payment to $30,000. 

That has not ended the difficulty however; court documents show that a decision on David’s salary for 2016 became bogged down in legal argument when Barbara refered it to an arbiter, and the appointment of the arbiter became itself a matter of dispute.

Snopes.com will be asked by Facebook to be an arbiter on the veracity of news.

Attorneys for the former husband and wife also conducted a lengthy exchange on what was actually true about the actions of the former couple.

In correspondence his side disputes her right to ‘decide what is and is not a legitimate business expense’, while her side accused of him of making false claims about the appointment of the arbiter.

In the time since the couple split, David has run the company’s day-to-day operations, and authored a number of ‘fact checks’.

He has also made hires – including Elyssa Young, 47, an administrative assistant at Snopes.

She is also a long-time escort and porn star who has worked for decades under the name ‘Erin O’Bryn’ – and now his wife.

Mikkelson married Young last month in Washington state, and pre-wedding photos show the happy couple traveling the world and posing provocatively with tigers while wearing ‘Snopes’ hats and t-shirts.

The wedding party included two of the site’s workers. The newlyweds honeymooned on the Jungle Cruise at Tokyo Disneyland.

Although Young lists her job as ‘administrative assistant at Snopes’ on LinkedIn, her escort websites and Twitter accounts still appear to be active. it is unclear if she is still working as one. 

She describes herself on her Twitter page as ‘a mature and experienced courtesan, idealist, activist & dreamer.’

On her escort website, she calls herself ‘an elite and discreet companion’ who ‘understands that while pleasure and passion may be explored in the bedroom, it is hardly the only place.’

‘I only accept a very limited number of new lovers because I’m only seeking long term engagements,’ she wrote. 

She also wrote: ‘Here’s the donation I request for my time, companionship, and entertainment’, with ‘non-negotiable’ rates of $1,200 for her minimum four hours and $5,000 for 24 hours.

Fact checker: Kim LaCapria is the principal fact checker at the website but also blogged as Vice Vixen and wrote about her 'domme' side and offered sex toy recommendations

Online reviews suggest that she was working in Las Vegas as an escort in March 2015.  

While David Mikkelson has denied that Snopes takes any political position, his new wife has a background in politics.

She ran for U.S. congress in Hawaii as a Libertarian in 2004, during which she handed out ‘Re-Defeat Bush’ cards and condoms stamped with the slogan ‘Don’t get screwed again’.

LUCRATIVE FACTS

Financial details of Snopes.com disclosed in court papers show that the website appears to be healthily profitable.

In February 2016, it had gross advertising sales of $216,199 and a gross profit of $150,599.50.

Expenses were notes as $2,500 for ‘server expense’ and $4,470 to Brooke Binkowski, which was marked as 80 per cent of payroll expenses.

Binkowski  described herself as the editor of Snopes.com.

Her remuneration, which would be equivalent to $53,640 per annum, pales in comparison to that of David Mikkelson.

His 2015 annual salary was $240,000. On top of that the divorce settlement stipulated a $20,000-per-month draw on profits, with he and Barbara later upped to $30,000 – a package that would be the equivalent of $500,000 a year.

He is seeking a pay rise to ‘2x or 3x’ the $240,000, court documents show, although he was prepared to settle for $360,000. 

On top of that the court documents show that he had previously been able to charge other things to the company rather than paying for them himself.

In court papers his lawyers said: ‘Prior to separation, Barbara wrote off every trip David took that  involved visiting historical landmarks, sites, monuments; or museums; or any other site of pop culture significance (including baseball games), as a business expense.

Further court documents showed some of the details of the couple’s personal wealth. 

They included: a $205,000 home in Las Vegas; a $1,525,000 home in Calabasas, Los Angeles; two savings accounts with $3,064,993; a cash account with $81,785 and a stock account with $47,588; IRAs valued at $455,101; and a baseball card collection which was not valued.

‘Let’s face it, I am an unlikely candidate. I fully admit that I am a courtesan,’ she wrote bluntly on her campaign website.

Her upstart campaign faced a number of obstacles – including a lack of funding and a bad spot of media attention after Young misspelled her Republican opponent’s name on her campaign website.

But Young still managed to get on the ballot without spending any money, an accomplishment she touted on her campaign website.

‘NO BULS***…I got ON THE BALLOT with the least possible waste,’ she wrote, adding, ‘Lets get less REAL boobs in office…’

In the end she pulled in three percent of the vote, losing the seat to Democratic incumbent Neil Abercrombie.

She is not the only Snopes employee who is frank online about their sex life.

One of the lead fact-checkers, Kim LaCapria, has also been a sex-and-fetish blogger who went by the pseudonym ‘Vice Vixen.’

She described her blog as a lifestyle website ‘with a specific focus on naughtiness, sin, carnal pursuits, and general hedonism and bonne vivante-ery.’

She regularly provided intimate advice and reviewed sex toys, including a vibrating wand that ‘drives boys mad.’

‘If you are doing something to your fella, and you apply this to the base of his cash-and-prizes while you carry on, he will scream and perhaps cry,’ she wrote.

She also recommended one book with the review: ‘How to Tell A Naked Man What To Do seems like the perfect how-to for the dominatrix-in-waiting, or any girl looking to get in touch with her domme side. Mine, I wish I could shut her up sometimes, but there you go.’

In others posts, LaCapria claimed to be ‘addicted to smutty HP [Harry Potter] fanfic.’

Describing her day-off activities on another blog, she wrote that she ‘played scrabble, smoked pot, and posted to Snopes.’ She added, ‘That’s what I did on my day “on,” too.’

David Mikkelson told the Dailymail.com that Snopes does not have a ‘standardized procedure’ for fact-checking ‘since the nature of this material can vary widely.’ He said the process ‘involves multiple stages of editorial oversight, so no output is the result of a single person’s discretion.’

He also said the company has no set requirements for fact-checkers because the variety of the work ‘would be difficult to encompass in any single blanket set of standards.’

‘Accordingly, our editorial staff is drawn from diverse backgrounds; some of them have degrees and/or professional experience in journalism, and some of them don’t,’ he added.

LaCapria did not respond to a request for comment.               

Twitter Rats Are Diving Off The Sinking Boat of Twitter As New Media News Reveals Twitter is Just A Clinton Political Sham

Twitter CTO Quits as Social Network’s Execs Flee Company

 
 

Adam Messinger joins a long list of ex-Twitter leadership as he suddenly departed the troubled social media network.

Twitter CTO and newly-appointed Head of Product Adam Messinger joins Kevin Weil, as well as Katie Jacobs Stanton, Alex Roetter, and Brian Schipper, on a life raft off of Jack Dorsey’s beleaguered network. VP of Product and “rising star” Josh McFarland is following Messinger right through the door. Adam Bain, Twitter’s former COO, left a 4% stock drop in the wake of his own exit, just last month.

Twitter has been unsuccessful in its increasingly desperate attempts to sell itself to anyone from Google, to Disney, to Salesforce. All the while, it has been hemorrhaging employees at all levels as it attempts to remain viable in a market that is swiftly leaving it behind. Vine was perhaps the most notable casualty of Twitter’s steep decline under Dorsey in 2016, which has seen its stock price repeatedly find new lows.

Adam Messinger’s departure is a vicious blow to Twitter’s leadership. Dorsey has increasingly relied on Messinger during the tumultuous year, putting him in charge of the product’s engineering, development, and design. Messinger was also instrumental in the appointment of Keith Coleman as Product Leader.

According to an anonymous source for The New York Times, Messinger isn’t even leaving Twitter for a new opportunity. He’s just leaving.

Facebook and Google Realize That Entire World Hates Them

By existing for the purpose of controlling ideologies and politics Google and Facebook have created a never-ending war on truth that they 1.) Can never escape and 2.) Can never stop from destroying themselves.

The endless and accelerating cycle of political correctness will kill Google and Facebook and there is nothing they can do to stop it.

Even if they spend a hundred trillion dollars and put four hundred billion servers, the public will have more ideas and thoughts than Google and Facebook can ever attempt to control. Here is the math:

500,000 new people per day realize Google, Facebook and Twitter are a scam created to control public opinion.

10,000 new censorship issues arise per day.

10 new governments ban or filter Google and Facebook out per week.

Google and Facebook increase their censorship by 1% per week which makes 300,000 new angry internet users per week.

Advertisers realize that 2,000,000 more impressions on Silicon Valley sites are fake bots per week.

The end result of this death-spiral is Google and Facebooks death.

FACEBOOK UNCOVERED: SECRET DOCUMENTS EXPOSE FACEBOOKS UTTER FAILURE AS WORLD CENSOR

Internal Documents Reveal Bizarre Facebook Rules for Censorship of ‘Hate Speech’

 

By Lukas Mikelionis | 7:41 am, December 21, 2016
Facebook has come under fire after German Newspaper SZ-Magazin revealed internal secret rules of deletion that show the platform flagging up the content as hate speech if it doesn’t abide to bizarre mathematical formulas.

The newspaper has acquired internal documents created by the department at Facebook that sets the rules of deletion.

According to the paper “these rules are then often applied by external service providers, such as the Bertelsmann subsidiary Arvato in Berlin. Employees attend internal training workshops where they learn what should be deleted and what shouldn’t.”

Despite these categories having some protection in theory, Facebook users are generally allowed to speak badly about them as long as it doesn’t include condemning actual people for being part of them.

 

Also, a “protected category” combined with another “protected category” will result in another category which, if spoken badly, can lead to censorship.

 

For instance, writing “Irish women are dumb,” which includes both “national origins” and “sex” categories, will break the community rules, meaning that such a post would be deleted. This is because most Facebook staff are SJW women.

 

But a post saying “Irish teenagers are dumb” won’t break the community rules, because a combination of a protected category with an unprotected category results in an unprotected category, thus is allowed.

 

 

The internal documents related to migrants and refugees also raise questions about how well the rules are enforced.

 

Writing “fucking migrants” is allowed, as “migrant” isn’t a category Facebook wants to protect.

 

The rule claims that advocating hate against migrants is allowed under certain circumstances: posts saying “migrants are dirty” are allowed.

 

 

The revelations by the newspaper also expose the dire conditions in which Facebook moderators work. According to the paper, 600 people in Berlin are working for as little as the minimum wage. Some anonymously complained that they are inadequately prepared. Struggling to comprehend the ill-defined rules of moderation, they feel stressed and overloaded.

 

Some employees of the Facebook moderation team have reported considerable psychological problems because of their exposure to shocking content, such as torture, murder, or child pornography.
