Free Speech Social Network - Gab - Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google Reader 09/16/2017 (Sat) 15:34:09 Id: 17be63 [Preview] No. 1696 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Gab, the free speech social network, has filed a lawsuit against Google after they were suspended without warning from Google’s Play Store last month.

The social network, which boasts itself as a platform for everyone and recently raised over $1 million in public investment, was suddenly suspended and removed from Google Play for “hate speech,” despite the fact that it had been available on the platform for several months.

“Free speech social media site Gab AI, Inc. filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Google for violations of the Clayton Act and Sherman Act,” declared the company in a blog post, Friday. “The lawsuit stems from Google removing Gab from its Google Play Android app store on spurious grounds of ‘hate speech’ arising from posts by users.”

“Google did not accuse Gab of hate speech, but used third party content as a pretext to justify its own business ends,” they continued. “Gab, a startup, aims to bring ‘folks together of all races, religions, and creeds who share in the common ideals of Western values, individual liberty and the free exchange and flow of information.'”

Gab’s attorney, Marc Randazza, claimed in a statement that Google’s actions against Gab were “a straightforward violation of the antitrust laws.”

“Google Play and Android have monopoly power in the app store market, and Google’s apps YouTube and Google+ compete directly against Gab,” claimed Randazza. “Google’s intimate partnership with Twitter, which also competes against Gab, makes Google’s control of all Android apps available through the Play Store a serious restraint of trade issue.”

“Regardless of Google’s pretextual justification for removing Gab, the effect is that they used their monopoly power in the app store to block an upstart competitor it in the social media app market,” he added. “To the detriment of millions of consumers who value free speech.”

Gab CEO Andrew Torba also released a statement on the lawsuit, calling Google “the biggest threat to the free flow of information.”

“Gab started to fight against the big tech companies in the marketplace, and their monopolistic conduct has forced us to bring the fight to the courtroom,” Torba declared. “We are going to be outspent and outgunned, but we believe we have the law — and basic principles of fairness — on our side.”

I don't see why not. Likely so.

The only rule I know of is you cannot go around physically threatening people. If you are threatening physical violence against other users and they report it, then they could ban you.

In my opinion that's not that big a deal, why do some people feel the need to physically threaten others on the internet?



Angry JP Morgan CEO Bashes Bitcoin, Says Cryptocurrency Is A Fraud Reader 09/14/2017 (Thu) 14:52:23 Id: 96a9a3 [Preview] No. 1665 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Jamie Dimon says bitcoin cryptocurrency “is a fraud” that will eventually blow up like the famous Tulip market bubble of 1637.

“You can’t have a business where people can invent a currency out of thin air and think that people who are buying it are really smart,” JPMorgan Chase CEO said at a bank investor conference in New York.

BREAKING: JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon says bitcoin “is a fraud” that will eventually blow up https://t.co/ZnbSx16LT9

— CNBC (@CNBC) September 12, 2017

Ironic how the Federal Reserve system just prints money out of thin air and calls it legal tender when its clearly backed by nothing. You won't hear Dimon critize the US Dollar when the Fed does the EXACT SAME THING!

“It’s just not a real thing, eventually it will be closed,” Dimon said Tuesday at the Delivering Alpha conference presented by CNBC and Institutional Investor.

Dimon joked that even his daughter bought some bitcoin, looking to cash in on a trend that has seen it soar more than 300 percent this year.

“I’m not saying ‘go short bitcoin and sell $100,000 of bitcoin before it goes down,” he said. “This is not advice of what to do. My daughter bought bitcoin, it went up and now she thinks she’s a genius.”

In an appearance at a separate conference earlier in the day, Dimon said bitcoin mania is reminiscent of the tulip bulb craze in the 17th century.

A little too late, we can't get out of the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt we already have without a serious and destabilizing reset (which is bound to happen, not if but when)...

At this point all the Fed can do is create more and more debt to prop up our FAKE "economy" until the world rejects the dollar and the dollar hyperinflates into worthless paper.

Kinda funny and ironic that they (((the big banks))) wanted to create a massive "cashless society" where everyone was tracked and every transaction was monitored and under surveillance ... only to be outsmarted by some nerds who created an anti-surveillance "blockchain" encryption-fueled digital currency which would not be in anyone's control.

Now it seems they are scrambling to delegitimize it and telling everyone that they should not invest in it. This is one major reason I just may actually do so (of-course I won't put all my money into it, but perhaps a little can't hurt to try it out).

No digital currency is 100% safe, neither is having cash because over time it is being devalued and will inevitably become worthless paper at some point in the future. Trust your survival instincts: storeable food, a backup supply of water, guns/ammo/mags, extra sanitation supplies (TP, soap, antibiotics, rags, tissues, etc.), extra clothing/shoes/boots, night vision goggles, flashlights, extra batteries, a solar generator... you get the gist. That is stuff you would need to survive if your source of income ever gets cut off, or if our economy crashes. Having an RV with extra gas wouldn't hurt either.

(Physical - not paper ETF) Gold and silver is a good option for investment - if you plan to barter or just have a lot of extra cash. Otherwise the lack of basic essentials should be the primary concern, everyone should have a backup plan.



Decaying Infrastructure Leads To Sewage Spills In Hurricane-battered Florida Reader 09/15/2017 (Fri) 14:41:47 Id: d47f3c [Preview] No. 1682 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Widespread power outages in hurricane-battered Florida are causing another headache: sewage overflows.

Local governments have reported more than 100 spills since Irma struck, some involving millions of gallons of wastewater. The outages disable stations that pump wastewater to plants for treatment.

About 6 million gallons was released from a plant on Virginia Key near Miami during a seven-hour power interruption overnight Sunday.

Federal and state teams will help assess damage to drinking water and sewage systems.

Many Florida cities have a long history of wastewater spills because of decaying infrastructure and a booming population concentrated in coastal cities.

I'd never live around cities because they are run by corrupt bureaucrats who waste (read: steal) taxpayer money and instead of spending it on maintaining current infrastructure, they choose to blow it up their nostrils and pay off their hooker debts.

Cities are filled to the brim with terrible corruption. I'd rather live in a run-down trailer park in the boonies than live in a city.

Family Members of Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens ENRAGED By Trump's New Amnesty Push Reader 09/15/2017 (Fri) 15:26:51 Id: b9f30e [Preview] No. 1686 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Family Members of Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens ENRAGED By Trump's New Amnesty Push

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/09/14/9-family-members-of-americans-killed-by-illegal-aliens-respond-to-possible-daca-deal-with-democrats/

Nine Americans who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens spoke out in response to reports out of a Wednesday night dinner meeting between President Donald Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that the discussions involved a deal to shield DACA illegal aliens from deportation.

After Wednesday night’s dinner meeting at the White House, Schumer and Pelosi released a joint statement claiming an agreement had been reached with Trump to “enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” according to the Washington Times.

On Thursday morning President Trump began tweeting in response to the reports on the meeting between the three. Those tweets read:

“No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”,

“The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built.”,

If Trump is looking for love or popularity this is certainly NOT the way to go about it.

His critics will always hate him, no matter what he says or does. At this point, his new "allies" will only backstab him later on. Guaranteed.

His supporters only love him because they believe he will keep his promises. And if he doesn't they'll turn against him too. And that means his former supporters will be among the critics (only for different reasons).

Which means he may become a 4 term president because of the loss of his support base.

Next Globalist Agenda: Replace Credit Cards, Car Keys, Etc. With Mandatory Microchips Reader 09/14/2017 (Thu) 23:09:39 Id: d413c6 [Preview] No. 1672 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A microchip embedded under the skin will replace credit cards and keys according to Stephen Ray, who has already overseen a program for Sweden’s largest state owned train operator that allows customers to scan their chips instead of using tickets.

BBC News showcased the system in which Swedes are able to have their embedded chip scanned by a conductor who uses an app to match up their chip membership number with a purchased ticket.

Around 3,000 people in Sweden have already had a chip embedded in their hand in order to access secure areas of buildings.

SJ – the first travel company in the world to implement the system is north Europe’s largest train operator. The company initially expects around 200 people to join the program.

Despite Ray dismissing concerns about privacy, when the program was launched some customers complained that their LinkedIn profiles were appearing instead of their train tickets when conductors scanned their biometric chip.

“You could use the microchip implant to replace a lot of stuff, your credit cards, they keys to your house, the keys to your car,” Ray told the BBC.

His sentiments echo the tone of an NBC News report last year which asserted the microchipping of children will happen “sooner rather than later” and that Americans will eventually accept the process as something just as normal as the barcode.

“It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when,” electronics expert Stuart Lipoff told the network.

Concerns about the embedded microchip representing the “mark of the beast” mentioned in the bible have been expressed by many on the Christian right for over two decades.

Declassified CIA Documents From The 80s Outline Plans To Infiltrate Schools and Control The Press Reader 09/05/2017 (Tue) 15:38:01 Id: 4cc20f [Preview] No. 1592 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Declassified CIA Documents From The 80s Outline Plans To Infiltrate Schools and Control The Press

https://archive.fo/nyWpa
https://newspunch.com/cia-schools-brainwash-children/

CIA documents written in 1984 shows how the agency had planned to infiltrate schools, colleges and universities in order to brainwash students.

Memos from the CIA Inspector General’s office reveal how the agency had planned to saturate the media with U.S. propaganda by brainwashing prospective journalists at a young age.

CE reports: It’s from 1984, approximately three decades prior to when the Agency declared Wikileaks a hostile non-state intelligence service. It shows how the CIA viewed the media the same way.

Are organizations like Wikileaks really a threat to National Security? Or are they simply a threat to a small group of powerful people who make millions, billions, or even trillions of dollars via government secrecy? Are they a threat to the global national security agenda that is taking place, disguised under the guise of globalisation? Was president Vladimir Putin right when he said “imaginary” and “mythical” threats are being used to impose the Deep State’s way on the entire world? Perhaps truth and transparency are a threat yes, but not to national security. If we continue to ignore these questions, the national security state will continue to be heightened, one in which our rights are constantly violated, with our right to privacy being one of many great examples.

Several weeks prior, CIA Director Casey had asked the IG to weigh in on officer Eloise Page’s paper on unauthorized disclosure. The IG passed the task onto someone on his staff, who produced a four page SECRET memo for IG James Taylor, who passed it on to Director Casey. The IG specifically endorsed the proposal for a program where the Agency would intervene with journalism schools.

The non-conspiracy story is they did it because the universities were leftist hotpots where student protests and anti-Vietnam war mobs were becoming more common. They had agents pose as students and infilitrate the classes so they could nip any communist or destabilizing student movements in the bud.

True, but too bad the CIA now endorses communist/socialist ideologies and strongly backs tyrannical regime change everywhere (including within the US). The CIA is full of radical leftists today. Not saying everyone who works for the CIA is like that, but the upper echelon surely are.

The fact the feds were successful taking over the US educational system and comparing modern "education" from real traditional education is red herring.

Gab Launches Legal Fund to Take on Silicon Valley Censorship Reader 08/23/2017 (Wed) 03:01:05 Id: e3fc9c [Preview] No. 1466 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Free speech social network Gab announced its intentions to take on Silicon Valley censorship, Monday, launching a legal fund.

“For over a year now Gab has focused on our core mission of putting people first and defending free expression on the internet for everyone,” the company declared. “We seek to offer the market a free speech-friendly alternative to the authoritarian pro-censorship offering of established technology oligopolies.”

“Gab has demonstrated that there is a clear market for free speech online. Our company was profitable during its first year of operation and recently raised $1m in an equity crowdfunding campaign to expand the core team and grow the business,” they continued, before referencing Google’s removal of Gab from their store last week.

“Establishment tech companies have wrongfully exercised anti-competitive duopolistic dominance in the mobile application distribution marketplace. This behavior will not stand,” the company claimed. “We’re talking to a lot of people and firms who are motivated to challenge the trend toward institutional and cultural homogeneity in the tech world. We’re ramping up for decisive action on the legal front sooner rather than later and need your help to make it happen.”

“We are already actively talking to counsel. Naturally we can’t disclose much about those chats, but they’re very interesting! The Gab Legal Fund will be exclusively designated to exploring and moving forward on all legal options,” Gab concluded. “When you support the Gab Legal Fund you are helping us take a clear message to the oligarchs in Silicon Valley: The People will not stand by and watch as you strip away the liberty and freedoms we all cherish online. Politically correct corporate morality policing and anti-competitive behavior must end and it must end fast. The free market exists precisely for issues like this, but with a duopoly controlling 95% of mobile device distribution (both software side and hardware:) it becomes impossible to fairly compete.”

The Gab legal fund is currently taking donations in PayPal, Bitcoin, and Ethereum.

In an email to Breitbart Tech, Gab CEO Andrew Torba claimed the Gab Legal Fund “will be used to directly explore any and all legal options against the anti-competitive actions of the Silicon Valley oligopoly.”

“In the past Gab has operated solely on donations from our community, raising over $150,000 to date. On a going forward basis all donations to the company will power the Gab Legal Fund while our GabPro customers and investment capital will be used to grow the core team and cover operational costs,” he explained. “We’ve already raised $7,500 for the legal fund just half a day after announcing it.”

The Google Play store removed Gab’s app last week, which had already been up for several months, citing “hate speech” on the platform.

Alex Jones: Trump Is Being Drugged By Soros Operatives Reader 09/12/2017 (Tue) 15:05:09 Id: 6765a5 [Preview] No. 1646 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Multiple White House sources claim that President Trump is being drugged by Soros operatives who are looking to perform a coup d’etat against his administration.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=qVUSLxQyy9c [Embed]

Insiders close to Trump claim that Deep State operatives are putting sedatives in Trump’s food and drink to make him more compliant and confused.

“It’s known that most presidents end up getting drugged. Small dosages of sedatives till they build it up. Trump’s such a bull he hasn’t fully understood it yet,” InfoWars host Alex Jones claimed in a broadcast on Monday.

“But I’ve talked to people, multiple ones, and they believe that they are putting a slow sedative that they’re building up that’s also addictive in his Diet Cokes and in his iced tea and that the president by 6 or 7 at night is basically slurring his words and is drugged,” Jones says.

Infowars.com reports: Prior to the presidency, Trump was known for his energetic 18+ hour days in the high-stress world of real estate development – and his reportedly sudden shifts in behavior mesh perfectly – too perfectly – with the establishment media’s prediction that the president would soon suffer cognitive issues.

“The president does not drink, the president most certainly does not do drugs. The president is a sharp as a tack,” according to Trump insider Roger Stone, who talked to his own sources in addition to the sources who spoke to Infowars. “…I have now heard, not from one but two different sources, that he seemed disoriented and was slurring his speech in conversations.”

“To me this is a tip-off that he may be medicated. Is [Chief of Staff] Gen. Kelly above this? No.”

Consequently, Kelly pressured Trump’s decades-long bodyguard, Keith Schiller, to resign from the White House, a troubling development given Schiller’s personal dedication to the president’s well-being.
