Avanti Salvini

Matteo Salvini makes his long-awaited move:
Crisi di governo, le dimissioni di Conte: "Il governo finisce qui, Salvini ha seguito interessi personali e di partito". 
Goverment crisis, the resignation of Prime Minister Conte: "The government is finished here, Salvini has followed his personal ambitions and the interests of his party.

What's happening here is that the nationalists of La Lega are in a position to take power in the Italian government without their former left-wing allies in the Movimento Cinque Stelle who have been preventing them from dealing conclusively with the migration crisis and the European Union.

So, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who is the most popular man in Italy now due to his forthright nationalism, brought down the government by severing the La Lega-Cinque Stelle alliance with the intention of forcing new elections in October. Rather than try to avoid the elections by putting together a new minority government, Conte elected to resign and end the current government.

The irony, of course, is that Salvini is the one politician who actually cares about the Italian nation. Conte is projecting when he implies that Salvini is only pursuing power for its own sake. And the amusing thing was the way that Salvini responded to Conte's broadside by kissing the crucifix he was holding in his hand.

I'm not entirely certain what he meant by that, but I suspect it was a gesture intended to echo that of many Italian soccer players when they are substituted for a starter. They reach down, touch the grass, cross themselves, then raise the team badge on the chest of their jersey and kiss it. In other words, Salvini was symbolically saying "you're done, Conte. It's my turn now."

Mailvox: team sports and omegas

An omega writes of his experience with team sports and group activities:
You're right about team sports: as an omega teenager, I was lucky enough to play hockey and football/soccer. I endured the bullying, but I didn't know why until I read your post.

I was also in the school's marching band, which was made up of mostly the school's best jocks with tiny number of lesser boys like me. Getting beaten with a mace by the leader or forced to run with your instrument above your head does kill fear and teach coordination through team-work. In no other context could an omega like me work alongside boys this high up the socio-sexual hierarchy. I hated it at the time but your post made me realise how lucky I was.

Unsurprisingly, the initiations were brutal. I was praised for taking it so well when other boys freaked out and sobbed, so respect can be earned, even as an omega. An important lesson.

I punched the aforementioned leader in the face once, but he let it go instead of ordering the band to tunnel me. The rest of the band followed suit and never brought it up again. A few in the band were younger alpha males, and as he was the oldest and the biggest, they obeyed.

I didn't leave and they didn't kick me out. Another important lesson: keep trying hard, and people higher up the socio-sexual rank will admire the effort. They won't give up on you. When I eventually became good at an arbitrary physical activity then even bullies would spread the word. As you said in one DarkStream, being good at something physical is important, even if it's just one small thing.

Thanks to your post, I now see that these experiences are why I relate well to other men - except gammas; they openly despise me - and alpha males instead of hating them. It made it easier to accept my station in life as well as some success with women.
This guy gets it. Accept your place, accept the hazing with equanimity, demonstrate your merit through actions instead of words, prove your loyalty, and you will find yourself rising in every male social hierarchy no matter how low you are on the totem pole at the beginning.

Men genuinely like underdogs, even the ugly ones. But an underdog absolutely has to show that he has fight if other men are going to cheer for him and stand by him.

Diplomats see Trumpslide 2020 coming

Unlike the US media, foreign diplomats won't be fooled again:
Foreign diplomats are still feeling burned after assuming Donald Trump would lose in 2016 — and they don’t want to be fooled again. So many of them are quietly preparing for and predicting a Trump victory in 2020. Some are even trying to game out who will be on the president’s team in a second term. The belief that Trump will win reelection — gleaned from conversations with around 20 foreign diplomats, international officials and analysts who deal with them — appears widespread....

“What I’m saying right now is, I think, shared by many people,” a Middle Eastern diplomat said of the coming presidential election. “It’s his to lose.”
We called it first. Wear it with confidence.

The cancer protects itself

A Reprehensible emails his observation that Twitter is muting the voices of anyone who criticizes the entertainment blackwashing:
After seeing the cast of Wheel of Time I couldn't get my mind off of it so I made a twitter account using a throw away email account. I took a minute to grab some images from the web and put some propaganda/memes together, nothing special, and posted to the showrunners twitter. At first twitter gave me an error when trying to upload an image with the file name “not our Perrin”. Once I changed the name of the file to random numbers it let me post the image with my comment. The comment itself did not bring up race. I was IMMEDIATELY locked out of my account.

I followed the instructions to unlock my account through my email. I then navigated to the casting directors twitter and posted a similar image with a short message. I was once again locked out of my account. This time twitter was asking for my cell phone number to regain access to my account. I have a burner that I can use to get back into the account so I might continue but I'm amazed that they would be watching this so closely.

Also, as an aspiring illustrator/animator I keep seeing all of this twisting and perversion of stories that I would have loved to help get to the screen. Now I can't stomach the idea of working on them. They even "woked" the 'Cowboy Bebop' cast. Do you have any advice on how to keep from getting discouraged by all of this?
It's fascinating that they are clamping down on it so tightly. They must harbor some understanding the level of massive social fury they are inspiring with these blackwashing and gender-bending provocations.

As for getting discouraged, I don't understand that at all. This is a massive strategic blunder by both Hollywood and the Social Thought Police. They are showing their hand to everyone, thereby giving us the opportunity to replace them entirely. Don't be discouraged, be motivated and inspired!

It keeps getting worse

No wonder Epstein and his friends were trying to keep the records sealed:
Jeffrey Epstein once had three 12-year-old girls flown in from France for him to abuse as a sadistic birthday present, unsealed court documents have alleged.

The fresh allegations were made by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was recruited to be a 'sex slave' by the millionaire financier and his girlfriend Ghislane Maxwell when she was 15 in 1999.

Giuffre made the allegations in a civil suit filed by the Miami US attorney's office in 2015.
Remember, this is the sort of thing that the US government authorities have been trying to keep under wraps. But a lot more of this sort of thing will be coming out soon.

UPDATE: The net is closing in on one of Epstein's friends:
Pressure was mounting on Prince Andrew last night to answer questions about his paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein.

Young victims of Epstein begged the Duke of York to help them get justice as the prince was offered the opportunity to give sworn testimony on 'everything he knows'. After the duke declared himself 'appalled' at reports of the US financier's sex abuse of teenage girls, he was offered the chance to stand by his word and help their cases.

Lawyers said they looked forward to sitting down with Prince Andrew 'as soon as possible', suggesting that he go on the record about Epstein, whom he once reportedly vowed to 'be loyal' to.

Today it can be revealed that flight logs, obtained by the Daily Mail, show that one of Epstein's victims, 'sex-slave' Virginia Roberts, was flown to London, New York and the Caribbean in 2001. She has claimed that as a 17-year-old she met the duke in all three places and, in each case, research by the Mail suggests the duke was in the same vicinity at the same time.

The value of football

The Duke of Wellington said, ten years after the battle while at Eton: "The battle of Waterloo was won here." Richard Sherman, the outspoken cornerback, has a similar perspective:
I understand that football teaches you values. It teaches you accountability. It teaches you work ethic. It teaches you how to be a teammate. It teaches you how to overcome adversity. How to deal with loss. How to deal with being coachable. All those are skills that translate to the real world. In just about any job, you have to be part of a team. Don’t go into other people’s lanes. Football teaches you those lessons. It teaches you at a young age. It teaches you to overcome fear. It teaches you, ‘Hey, I’m 190 pounds and he’s 305 pounds. I still have to have to have the courage to go in there and mix it up with him.’ Those are lessons I don’t know how to teach otherwise … There’s a chance you’re getting hurt but there’s also a chance that you learn these lessons, you have a great life, you have a career. If you don’t play professionally, if you don’t even play in college, those life lessons that you learn will translate and elevate you in life in general.
Many of these things are true of all team sports, although football is special when it comes to teaching courage due to its intensely physical nature. Those who mock it as "sportsball" are ignorant fools and physical cowards who would never dare to line up in the trenches, either as children or adults, and will be of no utility whatsoever when the shooting starts.

Nuke it again, just to be sure

I despise Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, so I'm mostly amused by the news that Amazon is blackwashing Perrin and Nynaeve:
Amazon’s upcoming Wheel of Time series will race swap Egwene, Perrin, and Nynaeve.

Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins confirmed casting announcements for the upcoming Amazon adaptation. They cast Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara, Zoë Robins as Nynaeve, and Madeleine Madden as Egwene Al’Vere. They also cast Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor, and Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon.
I am a little disappointed by the casting of Rand al'Thor, however. Josha Stradowski's face isn't anywhere nearly punchable enough.

China threatens financial nuke

I'll have to think through this before reaching any firm conclusions, but I'm dubious that what has been called the Chinese "nuclear option" of selling its T-bills is likely to be a very effective tactic.
If there is any further pushback from the US on any of these Chinese projects in Iran, then Beijing will invoke in full force the ‘nuclear option’ of selling all or a significant part of its US$1.4 trillion holding of US Treasury Bills, with a major chunk of the paper due to be sold in September on this basis. This massive holding of these bonds - through which the US finances its economy and is an important factor both in the value of the dollar and therefore in the health of US international companies especially – has been used as a bargaining chip before by China, especially when it feels threatened. Back in 2007, just before the great financial crisis, a number of senior Chinese figures at various state-run think tanks – through which China often signals its big geopolitical threats – stated that the large-scale selling of this massive Treasury Bill holding would trigger a dollar crash, a huge spike in bond yields, the collapse of the housing market and stock market chaos.

Such a tactic would neatly fit into China’s overall strategy to have the renminbi challenge the US dollar’s status as the key global reserve currency and the prime currency for global energy transactions. “The long-planned sequencing for this was inclusion in the SDR {Special Drawing Rights] mix, which happened in 2016, increasing use as a trading currency, which followed that, use as the key currency of an international energy trading exchange, which has occurred with the creation of the renminbi-denominated Shanghai International Energy Exchange in last year, and the calls from big oil producers and other major trading nations to use the renminbi, which has been happening over the past few years,” the head of a New York-based commodities hedge fund told OilPrice.com. Only recently, Leonid Mikhelson, chief executive officer of Russian oil major, Novatek, said that future sales to China denominated in renminbi is under consideration and that US sanctions accelerate the process of Russia trying to switch away from US dollar-centric oil and gas trading and the damage from potential sanctions that go with it. “This has been discussed for a while with Russia’s largest trading partners such as India and China, and even Arab countries are starting to think about it... If they do create difficulties for our Russian banks then all we have to do is replace dollars,” he said. “The trade war between the US and China will only accelerate the process,” he added.
At first glance, it looks to me the potential US response of simply repudiating its debt and declaring those T-bills to be of no value will be considerably more harmful to China than selling the debt will be to the USA.

Those who are focused on posturing and threats never seem to keep in mind that the enemy always gets a vote.

Pervs and pedos in the UK

The seemingly inexplicable enthusiasm for the late Jimmy Savile on the part of the royals of the UK is beginning to make more sense with the Epstein revelations as well as a recently released FBI dossier on Lord Mountbatten, the viceroy of India:
Agents began compiling the file, which spans more than three decades, in February 1944, shortly after Mountbatten became supreme allied commander of southeast Asia. Following his appointment, the FBI interviewed Elizabeth de la Poer Beresford, Baroness Decies, about another matter, and she brought up Mountbatten, The Sunday Times reports.

The file reads: 'She states that in these circles Lord Louis Mountbatten and his wife are considered persons of extremely low morals. She stated that Lord Louis Mountbatten was known to be a homosexual with a perversion for young boys. In Lady Decies' opinion he is an unfit man to direct any sort of military operations because of this condition. She stated further that his wife Lady Mountbatten was considered equally erratic.'

The royal kept a large group of gay friends, including Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, Ivor Novello and Tom Driberg, who reportedly referred to him as 'Mountbottom'.

Lownie's new book, to be published on Thursday, contains an interview with Anthony Daly, a rent boy to the rich and famous during the 1970s. Daly claims: 'Tom said Mountbatten had something of a fetish for uniforms — handsome young men in military uniforms (with high boots) and beautiful boys in school uniform.'
No wonder Princess Diana turned into such a lunatic after marrying into that family. And it's not exactly a mystery why Prince William seems to gravitate toward the relative normalcy of his in-laws.

They don't think it's a bug

It's actually a feature designed to permit their ideological allies to exploit their infrastructure:
Tulsi Gabbard's email account went down right after the Democratic Debate and I believe I can provide assistance on where to focus your discovery efforts because I saw how other accounts, such as Jordan B. Peterson, was taken down. I'm going to recount how this happened to him so as to assist you in your legal discovery process.

During my tenor, Jordan B. Peterson had his gmail account deactivated and I had the opportunity to inspect the bug report as a full-time employee. What I found was that Google had a technical vulnerability that, when exploited, would take any gmail account down. Certain unknown 3rd party actors are aware of this secret vulnerability and exploit it. This is how it worked:

Take a target email address, change exactly one letter in that email address, and then create a new account with that changed email address. Malicious actors repeated this process over and over again until a network of spoof accounts for Jordan B. Peterson existed. Then these spoof accounts started generating spam emails. These email-spam blasts caught the attention of an AI system which fixed the problem by deactivating the spam accounts... and then ALSO the original account belonging to Jordan B. Peterson!

To my knowledge, this bug has never been fixed. When Google says an account was deactivated because of "suspicious" activity, this is how they often do it.

Proof of this exploit can be found by doing the following:

1. Go inside the Google corporate network.
2. Then go to the following url: http://b (yes the url is that short).
3. Search terms: jordan b peterson

Cheers and good luck in your lawsuit!
Lawfare is the way to defeat the social media giants. But you must be willing to fight them! Contrary to what most people believe, they are not set up for it, they do not anticipate it, they are not legally sophisticated, and they aren't even inclined to handle their own legal defenses with their expensive in-house lawyers. Their focus on diversity and inclusivity means that their lower-level executives and in-house counsel are almost astonishingly incompetent; look at the number of simple grammatical errors in the average Silicon Valley company's terms of use as evidence of that.

New Zealand won't give up its guns

It would appear New Zealanders are not falling for the same sleight-of-law for which the Australians and the English fell so readily:
Once again, responding to a horrendous crime by inflicting knee-jerk, authoritarian restrictions on innocent people proves to be an ineffective means of convincing people to obey. Specifically, New Zealand's government—which also stepped up censorship and domestic surveillance after bloody attacks on two Christchurch mosques earlier this year—is running into stiff resistance to new gun rules from firearms owners who are slow to surrender now-prohibited weapons and will probably never turn them in.

Officials should have seen it coming.

"Police are anticipating a number of people with banned firearms in their possession won't surrender them," Stuff reported at the end of May, based on internal government documents.

As of last week, only around 700 weapons had been turned over. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns—with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms—in the country overall.
The people of New Zealand have seen what has happened post-gun control in both Australia and England. The violence has gotten worse, not better. The governments have gotten more authoritarian, not less. And given the degraded demographic situation in all these countries, only a complete fool would comply with these intrinsically immoral laws and disarm himself.

Why is it taking so long

To drain the Swamp? Because it has taken this long just to clear the swamp monsters out of the national security structure.
When Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and his deputy Sue Gordon leave their offices for the last time on Thursday, it will mark a turning point for an administration that has already endured the highest level of senior staff turnover in history.

Both Coats, who took on the role of intelligence chief in 2017, and Gordon, who started as his deputy a few months later, have outlasted a slew of their national security colleagues who left the Trump administration at various points over the last two years.

This "is a defining day in the Trump administration's national security structure -- they have finally cleared out all the national security positions in terms of senior officials," said David Priess, a former CIA official who delivered the president's daily briefing in the administrations of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
At this point, if you doubt the legitimacy of either the God-Emperor or Q, you simply are not paying sufficient attention. Consider the latest news on the subject: Everyone who wrote about Q on Medium was deplatformed.

A strange new credibility

The recent revelation of a painting at Jeffrey Epstein's mansion tends to back up the crazy 2016 claims of a former Clinton mistress:
One of Bill Clinton’s alleged ex-lovers, former Miss Arkansas Sally Miller, claimed that he would regularly jump into her frilly black nightgown and dance around while playing the sax as they were having their illicit affair.

They allegedly had sexual relations throughout 1983 when Clinton was serving as Arkansas Governor. Miller claimed his lovemaking was mediocre at best, but he would always bash his wife Hillary and divulge intimate secrets about his frigid and unappealing wife.

Before Miller released her tell-all memoir in 2016, she reported that she was being stalked and receiving threatening phone calls which prompted her to sleep next to a fully-loaded semi-automatic firearm every night. She claim in a social media post that if she were to suddenly die via suicide, similar to what recently happened to disgraced sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein, nobody should believe it.... Miller confirmed rumors that Hillary is a lesbian, and that the marriage between Bill and she has been ruse to fuel each other’s ruthless political ambitions all these years.
Once the devil is done with you, he stops protecting you from the truth. Considering recent events, it would appear that the Clintons are of little further use to their immortal master.

The 10th Generation

Damac quotes a 1973 book that featured some ominous observations concerning societal decline and fall.
The book "The Tenth Generation" George E Mendenhall (1973) is well worth studying in the light of the present historical circumstances. It is an analysis of the rise and fall of civilizations and kingdoms based on the history of the nation of Israel in the Bible. The thesis is that on average, nations only have a life of about 300 years, ten generations, and then they are destroyed from within. This conclusion was based on a study of I think 21 ancient civilizations, some of which, like the Hittites, vanished from the pages of history until exhumed by archaeologists like Mendenhall. He summarizes his findings as follows:

"The Tenth Generation witnessed and took part in the destruction of civilization. It seems possible -- both from direct historical evidence and by analogy with later periods of crisis which seem to be similar in other respects - to make some generalizations about that Tenth Generation."
  1. it is not characterized by poverty.
  2. it is characterized by a relatively high density of population...
  3. a breakdown in confidence in the existing social and political organization.
  4. a rejection of past ideologies and a desire for something new.
  5. there is a loss of sense of direction.
  6. an increasing resort to illegitimate force and violence, which is almost inevitable following the loss of confidence in the political organization which by definition is the "monopoly of force."
  7. the increased insecurity of everyone in the areas is deeply felt, and there may be a sense of foreboding, of impending doom.
  8. Doom comes: by whatever agency is perhaps by now irrelevant. The political, social, and economic structures of society are destroyed or enormously weakened - usually by violence, either from within, or without. Society simply disintegrates.
  9. deurbanization takes place. Cities are abandoned...a high percentage of the population lose their lives and what we call civilization - writing, art ...wealth, literature,...institutionalized religion - either cease to exist, or disappear..."
I find the deurbanization element to be particularly significant, as the almost-instinctive desire to get out of the cities I've been observing among savvier people all over the world for the last ten years tend to fly in the face of the economic and social impulses that continue to draw young people into the cities like sacrifices to Moloch.

Is GE the new Enron?
An accounting expert who raised red flags about Bernie Madoff ’s Ponzi scheme has a new target: General Electric Co.

In a research report posted online Thursday, Harry Markopolos alleges the struggling conglomerate has masked the depths of its problems, resulting in inaccurate and fraudulent financial filings with regulators. The report, which numbers more than 170 pages and was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, is a mixture of detailed financial analysis and sweeping claims.

Mr. Markopolos said, in an interview ahead of the report’s release, his group found GE’s insurance unit will need to bolster its reserves by $18.5 billion in cash and faulted the way the company is accounting for its oil-and-gas business. All told, he said, the accounting problems amount to $38 billion, or 40% of the conglomerate’s market value....

The report claims that policy premiums paid to GE are low compared with what rivals typically receive and that GE isn’t receiving any premiums at all on more than a quarter of policies, because those contracts are considered paid in full. The group says that, even after the $15 billion boost, GE’s reserves are well below what would be expected for such a troubled group of policies. GE in the early years front-loaded gains from the long-term-care business by collecting premiums when policyholders were young, the group claims, but failed to properly record reserves as the covered population aged and claims ran at higher levels than originally expected.
As we pass the recent stock market peak and enter a new correction or bear market, a lot of fraud is going to be uncovered. This is almost certainly just the start of an ongoing series of accounting revelations.

Fake Christians in false leadership

At this point, I'm extremely dubious about the genuine faith of any so-called "Christian leader". All they ever seem to do is subvert and sabotage the clear message of the Gospel and the unmistakable meaning of the Bible while preaching the word of the world:
Marty Sampson, a prolific worship music writer known for his work with Hillsong Worship, Hillsong United, Delirious and Young & Free, revealed he is losing his faith and believes Christianity is “just another religion.”

“Time for some real talk,” the Australian writer wrote in a since-deleted post on Instagram. “I’m genuinely losing my faith, and it doesn’t bother me. Like, what bothers me now is nothing. I am so happy now, so at peace with the world. It’s crazy.”

“This is a soapbox moment so here I go … How many preachers fall? Many,” he continued. “No one talks about it. How many miracles happen. Not many. No one talks about it. Why is the Bible full of contradictions? No one talks about it. How can God be love yet send four billion people to a place, all ‘coz they don’t believe? No one talks about it. Christians can be the most judgmental people on the planet—they can also be some of the most beautiful and loving people. But it’s not for me.”
What these lukewarm Christians need is to be confronted with the full face of evil. Let them personally witness human sacrifices, black sabbaths, and elite sex rituals. Perhaps then they will begin to understand that Christianity concerns, first and foremost, never-ending conflict with the fallen world, not peace with it.

Want an elephant

The West belatedly discovers that animal conservation is imperialism as far as the Africans are concerned:
The highly sensitive issue is whether the continent should be free to look after and even sell its own wildlife in the way it wishes, or be forced to bow to Western conservationists, rich celebrities and royals who say elephants must remain in the lands where they are born and be protected.

Next week, the sale of wild elephants such as the five-year-old, and the even more contentious trade in their tusks, will top the agenda in Switzerland at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

This is the organisation that sets worldwide rules on the sale of wild animals and their products. And impoverished Zimbabwe, which UN officials said last week was ‘marching towards starvation’, will be anxious to hear what CITES says.

In the past few years, Zimbabwe has made £2.2 million from the sale of 97 elephants — including the baby female pinned down in the crate — to zoos, parks and other tourist attractions in China and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

And more deals are in the pipeline because Zimbabwe has announced it will sell the creatures ‘to anyone’. No wonder Fulton Mangwanya, the director of Zimbabwe’s Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, said of the elephant sales: ‘We are fighting tooth and nail so that we are allowed to trade in our wildlife. The main contentious issue is the elephants, which we feel we are not allowed to fully benefit from.’
What, did they think that the Magic Dirt operates at a distance or something?

Trading Tucker for Shapiru?

That's the rumor swirling around Tucker Carlson's unexpected vacation:
Rumors are swirling that Tucker Carlson’s sudden “vacation” from his Fox News show was actually a suspension, with some even suggesting that Ben Shapiru could ultimately take his place.

Carlson faced a firestorm of criticism following his assertion last week after two mass shootings that paranoia in America over white supremacy was a “hoax” and that the country faced far bigger problems.

He then announced he would be taking a short holiday.

“By the way,” Carlson told viewers on Wednesday last week, “I am taking several days off – headed to the wilderness to fish with my son.”

Fox News claims that Carlson’s vacation had been planned before the contentious remarks and that he will return on August 19.

However, as CNN noted, there is a long history of Fox News hosts taking sudden vacations when they are embroiled in controversies, including Laura Ingraham, Judge Jeanine, Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters and Bill O’Reilly, who never returned.

Numerous high profile individuals at Fox News have also refused to comment on Carlson’s “vacation.”

Journalist Patrick Howley even suggested that Ben Shapiru was being lined up to replace Tucker. “The establishment is determined to move Shapiru into 8 o’clock instead of Tucker, and they figure the conservative movement is too stupid to notice the difference.”
The little guy sold his soul to get on TV, so it's only fair that they give him the chance to publicly flame out in spectacular fashion.

The latest Google document leak

It's not the first. It won't be the last. But it is substantive.
A Google staffer today released documents exposing a massive censorship campaign where the ubiquitous Google search engine purposefully censored pro-life and conservative web sites, including LifeNews.com.

Google Insider Zachary Vorhies has given an interview to watchdog group Project Veritas where he discusses how he documented Google censorship of leading pro-life and conservative web sites for over a year. He made the decision to go public in an on-the-record video interview after Google went after him following the release of the information to Project Veritas.

He decided to go public after receiving a letter from Google, and after he says Google allegedly called the police to perform a “wellness check” on him.

Along with the interview, Vorhies asked Project Veritas to publish more of the internal Google documents he had previously leaked.

“I gave the documents to Project Veritas, I had been collecting the documents for over a year. And the reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that there were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States,” he said.
I don't quite understand the concept of making the documents available to download only if you install some strange application, though. I'll pass, thanks.

Disney is TRYING to kill Star Wars

And, by the looks of it, it is succeeding:
A new rumor suggests J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson’s The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi movies were supposed to reboot the entire Star Wars franchise.

The source told Buechler:

“Rian was not just randomly writing a story nor was JJ. JJ’s job was to create a in-canon reboot like the 2009 movie and introduce the new characters. Rian’s job was to kill off the originals and then you were suppose to not notice it was rebooted. Each was given the outline to make it and what the points were. So now you know why. Disney did not want to pay a license fee and by end of it all looked different and was a new copyright under the old name. They even changed the Falcon to be different. But the orders was in the end to leave nothing original.”

The source added:

“There is this just quick. There was always one plan. After the reaction to The Last Jedi, the decision was made to bring in J.J. to fix the plan he laid out and they threw Rian under the bus. This is why they said Rian might get his own trilogy. They just didn’t expect the backlash to be as toxic as it was and consequently Solo flopped.”
The belief is that Disney owes some kind of licensing fees to Lucas if the original characters are involved, so they're trying to replace them in order to fully own everything. Of course, it's also possible that the original characters are simply too white and straight for the Devil Mouse to abide.

Been caught lying

I tend to doubt Sundar Pichai will still be CEO of Google by the end of the year now that he's being busted for lying by his former employees. Again.
A former Google insider claiming the company created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content – delivered roughly 950 pages of documents to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust division Friday.

The former Google insider, who has already spoken in to the nonprofit organization Project Veritas, met with SaraACarter.com on several occasions last week. He was interviewed in silhouette, to conceal his identity, in group’s latest film, which they say exposes bias inside the social media platform.

Several weeks prior, the insider mailed a laptop to the DOJ containing the same information delivered on Friday, they said. The former insider is choosing to remain anonymous until Project Verita’s James O’Keefe reveals his identity tomorrow.

He told this reporter on his recent trip to Washington D.C. that the documents he turned over to the Justice Department will provide proof that Google has been manipulating the algorithms and the evidence of how it was done, the insider said.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai told the House Judiciary Committee in December, 2018, that the search engine was not biased against conservatives. Pichai explained what algorithm’s are said Google’s algorithm was not offensive to conservatives because its artificial intelligence does not operate in that manner. He told lawmakers, “things like relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it” are what drives the search results. Pichai said even if his programmers were anti-Republican, the process is so intricate that the artificial intelligence could not be manipulated and it was to complicated to train the algorithm to fit their bias.
The problem isn't just that he lied to the House Judiciary Committee, it's that he told such stupid and obvious and easily disproven lies. More on this soon....
