    Twitter Shares Crash 17% After Users Drop, Company Warns More Declines ExpectedWOMP WOMP (zerohedge.com)https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...lines-expected

    It's deja vu all over again as Jack Dorsey pulled a Zuckerberg and reported a miss - and a drop - in user growth, while warning of even greater declines in the coming quarter.

    Looking at the financial results, they were not that bad, with the company reporting Q2 adjusted EPS 17c, just beating the estimate of 16c, with Q2 adjusted Ebitda of $265 million also beating estimates of $261.5 million, on Q2 revenue of $711 million, higher than consensus $697 million, of which ad revenue was $601 million, up 23% y/y, however a slowdown in US ad growth is starting to become obvious, with US ad revenues rising only 9%.

    This is somewhat related to "Big Tech" / Big Brother "Watching Us":

    "Here's how Warner is suggesting we deal:

    Mandatory location verification. The paper suggests forcing social media platforms to authenticate and disclose the geographic origin of all user accounts or posts.

    Mandatory identity verification: The paper suggests forcing social media and tech platforms to authenticate user identities and only allow "authentic" accounts ("inauthentic accounts not only pose threats to our democratic process...but undermine the integrity of digital markets"), with "failure to appropriately address inauthentic account activity" punishable as "a violation of both SEC disclosure rules and/or Section 5 of the [Federal Trade Commission] Act."

    Bot labeling: Warner's paper suggests forcing companies to somehow label bots or be penalized (no word from Warner on how this is remotely feasible)


    Define popular tech as "essential facilities." These would be subject to all sorts of heightened rules and controls, says the paper, offering Google Maps as an example of the kinds of apps or platforms that might count. "The law would not mandate that a dominant provider offer the serve for free," writes Warner. "Rather, it would be required to offer it on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms" provided by the government.

    Six Incidents of Unmasking Social Media Giants as Enemies of Free Speech

    “Hate speech is not free speech,” the Left increasingly insists – particularly on college and university campuses. In my new book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies), I show why the very concept of hate speech is a scam. Here are the top six:

    1. Twitter decides who has the right to “hate speech”

    Consider, for example, what Twitter does not consider to be “hate speech.” A Muslim named Obaid Karki, @stsheetrock on Twitter, runs a website headed “Obaid Karki St.Sheetrock’s Painfulpolitics Offensive Comedy Hepcat” and another called “Suicide Bombers Magazine.” He posted this on one of them in late May 2016, just before the European Union and the social media sites announced their new agreement: “Robert Spencer mustn’t [be] featured but lynched…”

    Karki’s posted this call for me to be lynched on Twitter. But Twitter refused to delete his account or even remove the threatening tweets.

    2. Social Media blocks the truth by deeming it “hate speech”

    Videogame developer Mark Kern was suspended from Twitter for writing, “I don’t see why mosques with radical leanings should be excluded from surveillance when the rest of us get our emails collected by the NSA.” The administrator of a pro–Donald Trump Facebook group was banned for arguing that Trump was not anti-Muslim but anti-ISIS.

    In early February 2017, they came for me.

    On February 7, 2017, referrals to my website, Jihad Watch, from Facebook numbered 23,783, and from Twitter, 1,718. These numbers were generally representative: referrals from Facebook for several years up to that point had averaged between 15,000 and 20,000 a day, and 1,500 to 2,000 a day from Twitter. But on February 10, 2017, those numbers dropped suddenly and precipitously, with only 2,923 referrals from Facebook and 295 from Twitter. That’s around where they have held since then: on March 20, 2017, there were 1,954 referrals from Facebook and 241 from Twitter.

    Did thousands of people who used to click through to Jihad Watch articles from Facebook and Twitter suddenly lose interest on February 10, 2017? Of course not. What happened on that day was that Facebook and Twitter began to censor Jihad Watch as “hate speech,” in accordance with the assurances they had given to the European Union.

    3. Blocking the Truth

    Facebook, immediately after concluding an agreement with the European Union, began moving aggressively against foes of jihad terror and mass Muslim migration in the West. Nina Rosenwald, the president and founder of the conservative think tank Gatestone Institute, on June 2, 2016 recorded Facebook’s haste to implement the new speech regulations: “On Tuesday, the European Union (EU) announced a new online speech code to be enforced by four major tech companies, including Facebook and YouTube. On Wednesday, Facebook deleted the account of Ingrid Carlqvist, Gatestone’s Swedish expert.”

    Carlqvist’s crime, according to Rosenwald, was to take note of real crimes by Muslim migrants: “Ingrid had posted our latest video to her Facebook feed—called ‘Sweden’s Migrant Rape Epidemic.” In that video, said Rosenwald, “Ingrid calmly lays out the facts and statistics, all of which are meticulously researched.” Rosenwald added that the video was adapted from a “research paper that Gatestone published last year. The video has gone viral—racking up more than 80,000 views in its first two days. But the EU is quite candid: it is applying a political lens to their censorship.... ”

    4. Facebook banning anti-jihad opinions

    Facebook banned the page of a gay magazine, Gaystream, after it published an article by David Berger, its editor-in-chief, criticizing German gay activists and leftists for ignoring the Islamic root causes of the Orlando jihad massacre. Berger wrote, “Whoever had thought the culmination of masochism and Islam-appeasement by left-green professional homosexuals was already achieved, will now be mistaken: it becomes even more masochistic and perverse.”

    5. Deleting jihad awareness

    In July 2016, YouTube also invoked “hate speech” criteria, which supposedly it had developed as a tool to use against jihad recruiting videos, to delete a video critical of non-violent Muslim Brotherhood efforts to advance Sharia in the West.

    6. The immunity of the censorship of certain social media groups explain a lot

    On July 13, 2016, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, on behalf of Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), of which I am vice president, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which grants Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube immunity from lawsuits, and thus makes it impossible to challenge their consistent bias against foes of jihad terror and tolerance of jihad terror activity.

    Section 230 of the CDA explicitly immunizes Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube from challenges to anything they do to “restrict access to or availability of material that” that they deem “obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected.”

    David Yerushalmi, AFLC co-founder and senior counsel, added, “Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have notoriously censored speech that they deem critical of Islam, thereby effectively enforcing blasphemy laws here in the United States with the assistance of the federal government. It has been the top agenda item of Islamic supremacists to impose such standards on the West.... Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are falling in line, and we seek to stop this assault on our First Amendment freedoms.”

    Krieger Asks: Is Google A Search Engine Or 'Deep State' Organ?

    Today’s post should be read as Part 3 of my ongoing series about the now infamous Google memo, and what it tells us about where our society is headed if a minority of extremely wealthy and powerful technocratic billionaires are permitted to fully socially engineer our culture to fit their ideological vision using coercion, force and manipulation. For some context, read Part 1 and Part 2.

    I struggled with the title of this piece, because ever since the 2016 election, usage of the term “deep state” has become overly associated with Trump cheerleaders. I’m not referring to people who voted for Trump, whom I can both understand and respect, I’m talking about the Trump cultists. Like most people who mindlessly and enthusiastically attach themselves to political figures, they tend to be either morons or opportunists.

    Nevertheless, just because the term has been somewhat tainted doesn’t mean I deny the existence of a “deep state” or “shadow government.” The existence of networks of unelected powerful people who formulate and push policy behind the scenes and then get captured members of Congress to vote on it is pretty much undeniable. I don’t believe that the “deep state” is a monolithic entity by any means, but what seems to unite these various people and institutions is an almost religious belief in U.S. imperial dominance, as well as the idea that this empire should be largely governed by an unaccountable oligarchy of billionaires and assorted technocrats. We see the results of this worldview all around us with endless wars, an unconstitutional domestic surveillance state and the destruction of the middle class. These are the fruits of deep state ideology, and a clear reason why it should be dismantled and replaced by genuine governance by the people before they lead the U.S. to total disaster.

    From my own personal research and observations, Google has become very much a willing part of this deep state, with Eric Schmidt being the primary driving force that has propelled the company into its contemporary role not just as a search engine monopoly, but also as a powerful and undemocratic tech arm of the shadow government.

    The Google Gulag
    The internet cannot remain in the hands of a corporation that hates free speech.

    Let me Google that for you.

    James Damore is an FIDE chess master who studied at Princeton, MIT and Harvard. He had been working as a software engineer at Google for four years.

    Danielle Brown is the new Vice President of Diversity at Google. She has an MBA from the University of Michigan and campaigned for Hillary.

    She had been working at Google for a few weeks.

    James Damore wrote a memo suggesting that Google should pursue ideological diversity, end discriminatory efforts to achieve identity politics diversity and be honest about gender differences. Danielle responded by denouncing his paper. “It’s not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.”

    Brown and Google CEO Sundar Pichai made some vague noises about free speech. And fired him.

    Easy now, you armchair absolutists; don't get your panties in a wad.
    When this guy talks about religion, he's referring to the way it was
    before the advent of the printing press and moveable type...

    Unfortunately, he paints with too broad a brush.

    Let's not turn this thread into a gum-beating session about your perception
    of some idiot's understanding of religion, OK? Are you with me on this?

    Check out the videos at the bottom of this linked article:

    BACKWARDS WORLD: Today diversity instead means conformity...

    I think we all see it, though some of us may not. The voices shouting for diversity and "fairness" while the push is actually to insure that only the CORRECT thinking and beliefs should be permitted. That sounds fair doesn't it? They can talk about tolerance and how important it is to be tolerant. Then they show you that tolerance by demanding certain people should not be able to speak, some of them advocate killing people for speech, and they miss some very important things.

    The term group think is mentioned at times and people may not understand that. You have to take the time to understand rather than assuming you already know everything in order to truly understand.

    I believe we are seeing the birth of a new religion. I will explain why I believe this.

    In history most religions have had things that were not permissible to say, or think. These would often receive labels such as heresy, blasphemy, occult, satanic, luciferian, words of Loki, etc. The people could be called Heretics, Blasphemers, Infidels, Satanists, Pagans, Witches, Pariahs, etc.

    If the religion had enough political influence they could run inquisitions and freely torture people, burn them at the stake, etc.

    The thing about these religious movements is that religious officials essentially were permitted to become THOUGHT POLICE.

    The term dogma enters my mind also. The immutable truth that should not be questioned is a hallmark of religions. The arrogance of man/woman to decide only they have the answers and to force it upon others.

    YouTube Deemed This Video As Controversial... You Be The Judge.

    YouTube is punishing Diamond and Silk for promising to tour with Sean Hannity. They agreed to it on air during his show and now their videos are demonitized. Sugar Honey & Iced Tea alright!

    Serious- The liberals at google have showed their hand. Shutting down Trump supporters like Diamond and Silk from YouTube is only the first step. They are going full Orwell and shutting down free speech. It's time Trump laid low their arrogance: Google must be declared a Monopoly and broken up.

    Google Perspective AI might seem like a joke now, but neural networks have a learning curve. This thing is going to get VERY, VERY good at what it was designed to do. Mark My Words, its going to be a censorship tool of biblical proportions.
