Mike Cernovich: Twitter — Either Go Private and be a Super PAC or Tell Shareholders the Truth about Shadow Bans

Summary?—?Twitter is shadow banning high profile accounts, generally populist accounts. Twitter has every right to “censor,” of course, with an exception. It is shareholder fraud to censor popular accounts, as this harms company growth. Jack Dorsey must take Twitter private or else tell his shareholders the truth?—?Twitter censors accounts that are critical of Hillary Clinton. (Even Bernie Sanders supporters have been shadow banned.)

Twitter is a publicly-traded corporation and thus its CEO Jack Dorsey has fiduciary obligations to his shareholders. Twitter is not Jack’s private little Super PAC. If Jack wants to censor influential and popular users, then he must disclose this to shareholders. He must tell them the truth, “I don’t care about shareholder value. I want to run Twitter like my personal blog and Super PAC.”

Scott Adams: I Declare Mobile Phone Carriers to Be Enemies of the State

Here’s the basic problem.

Kids as young as eleven have smartphones. That situation won’t change.

A kid with a smartphone has access to any illegal drug in the world, as well as all the peer pressure in the world.

Pills are small, cheap, odorless, widely available, and nearly impossible for a parent to find in a bedroom search. When you have this situation, the next generation is lost.

That is our current situation.

Banned at Breitbart now!

Breitbart,Russia Insider,Infowars,Fort Russ and others all have me banned. Breitbart banned me this morning. Funny thing,I'm only banned at so-called alternative websites.I have never been banned by the MSM on any site. Pretty strange....Not.
The ONLY alternative media website I go to that is being hacked 24/7 is Whatreallyhappened.com
I think Mike Rivero has the real deal. Most of the rest are nothing but controlled op.
To tell you the truth I am pretty disgusted with the whole thing. America and the American people are doomed. We get 2 news feeds,2 lines of so-called truth that are nothing of the sort.
The truth is out there and in the end it will out no matter what the cost to those who believe the lies.

The new Nokia 3310 has a BIG problem, and it might make you reconsider buying one

Despite having a number of new features, the new Nokia 3310 still only runs on a 2G network.

According to the specifications listed on the Nokia website, the new phone will only be able to function on standard GSM frequencies between 900 MHz and 1800 MHz.

And that could prove to be a problem.

A number of countries are looking to switch off their 2G networks in the coming years.

Predator Bloodbath: ‘Secretive’ Federal Agency Wildlife Services Kills 1.6 Million Native Animals in 2016

Wildlife Services (WS), a little-known wildlife-killing program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), killed 2,744,010 animals in 2016, 1,594,595 of which were native to the U.S. The agency shared this death toll in its annual program data report released March 15, 2017. Millions of taxpayer dollars fund this deadly program each year, which focuses primarily on eliminating apex predators and other animals that threaten livestock and agriculture.

Reducing the food web, reduces the livable space resulting in genocide.

LAPTOP WITH “HIGHLY SENSITIVE” TRUMP DATA, CLINTON EMAIL PROBE INFO STOLEN FROM SECRET SERVICE AGENT

Even when Hillary Clinton is no longer running for president, laptop "accidents" continue to follow her.

As regular readers will recall, shortly before the election, the FBI revealed that a laptop containing some of Hillary Clinton's emails mysteriously disappeared in transit, while several months later, another laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner just as mysteriously was found to contain emails between his then-wife Huma Abedin and her boss, Hillary. The laptop in question prompted the FBI to reopen its probe into Hillary Clinton's emails just days before the presidential election.

Now, according to the New York Daily News which cites police sources, a laptop computer containing information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as floor plans for Trump Tower and other national security information, was stolen from a Secret Service agent's vehicle in Brooklyn.

The Crumbling American Superpower

A Wall Street-driven agenda of globalization of US manufacturing and out-sourcing of production has left America a hollowed-out, crumbling Superpower. Since the 1980’s the United States has significantly under-invested in both new infrastructure and in renewing old. As US multinational corporations moved their factories overseas to cheap labor production in Mexico, then in Asia, especially China, and elsewhere, they found tax loopholes that allowed them to walk away from supporting the country that as recently as the 1960’s was the world industrial economic leading nation. Today US corporations hold $2.4 trillion in overseas profits that they keep abroad to avoid US taxes.

The result of all this neglect is that over the past three decades since the end of the 1980s, federal funding of major infrastructure projects such as dams has dropped by half, from 1 percent to 0.5 percent of GDP.

Weight Loss Strains

Trying to shed some weight? You might be surprised by this weight loss tip; Start using cannabis. While cannabis has long been known for its appetite inducing effects, research is now indicating that it can actually help lower BMI and reduce obesity. In fact, states with medical cannabis laws have even seen a 2-6 percent reduction in obesity rates. So how does cannabis pull off this weight loss trick? And more importantly, how can we harness its power for our own weight loss goals?

Two high-level government child trafficking rings busted and American media is silent

In late 2016, the government’s spin machine made it a point to feature “pizza gate,” only to mock anyone who would ever believe it to be true. The thought that high-level government officials in the U.S. would or could ever be involved in sex-trafficking or pedophilia was presented as far-fetched conspiracy theory, only believed by the fringe elements of society. But as The Free Thought Project has reported on numerous occasions, pedophilia involving high-level government officials is becoming the norm rather than the exception.

Who got rich off the student debt crisis

A generation ago, Congress privatized a student loan program intended to give more Americans access to higher education.

In its place, lawmakers created another profit center for Wall Street and a system of college finance that has fed the nation’s cycle of inequality. Step by step, Congress has enacted one law after another to make student debt the worst kind of debt for Americans – and the best kind for banks and debt collectors.

Today, just about everyone involved in the student loan industry makes money off students – the banks, private investors, even the federal government.

Multimillion warplane handed by US carries 276 ‘combat failings’

THE £100 million US warplane being bought for the Royal Navy’s aircraft carriers has 276 “deficiencies in combat performance”, a Pentagon report on the F-35 Lightning reveals.

The weaknesses in the £1.2trillion Joint Strike Fighter programme, including delays on completing gun testing and “overall ineffective operational performance”, are likely to delay its long-awaited entry into service still further.

There are also problems with the software which is designed to run the highly sophisticated warplane.

This could mean the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carriers face years without the planes they were designed to carry.

The length of the 62-page report was described by one source as “unprecedented” at this stage of the F-35’s already long-delayed development.

YOUR OLD CD-ROMS ARE PROBABLY ROTTING

In 2009, the Library of Congress commissioned a research report into the degradation ofCD-ROMs in storage as a way of assessing the integrity of the media in its collection: the news isn't pretty.

The standards for certifying a CD-ROM did not "place any requirement on the chemical or physical stability of the disc," so depending on the manufacturer and process, the discs you've put away on shelves may have wildly different material properties.

The study involved taking a trove of discarded/duplicate CD-ROMs from the LoC's collection and subjecting them to "accelerated aging" processes to see how many errors emerged as the media aged. Keeping discs dry and cool helped reduce error rates, but even so there's a lot of bitrot there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you are still preferring to use CD-ROMS, the word you are looking for on the packaging is the word "Archival", with some reasonable expectation of a decent shelf life.

The Sweet Taste of Poison - topped by strawberries for second year

For the second consecutive year, strawberries topped all other fruits and vegetables for the dubious honor of pesticide residues, CNN reported.
Data on 36,000 samples analyzed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the FDA showed 20 different pesticides associated with strawberries. Spinach jumped from eighth last year to second, having the most pesticide residue by weight. The rest of the "Dirty Dozen" consisted of nectarines, apples, peaches, celery, grapes, pears, cherries, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, and potatoes.
The "Clean Fifteen" list of produce with the lowest amount of pesticide residues comprised sweet corn, avocados, pineapples, cabbage, onions, frozen sweet peas, papaya, asparagus, mangoes, eggplant, honeydew melon, kiwis, cantaloupe, cauliflower, and grapefruit. The lists were included in the Environmental Working Group annual report, which showed that 70% of samples of 48 different fruits and vegetables were contaminated by pesticide residues.

Freshman Congressman Who Said Some People "Just Don't Want Health Care And Aren't Going To Take Care Of Themselves" To Hold "Listening Tour" In Kansas This Week

Newly elected Congressman Roger Marshall, representing the 1st district of Kansas, is an OB-GYN who has delieverd 5,000 babies. Marshall made some comments in an interview last week which caught him a lot of flak. He explained his position and announced that he will hold a "Listening Tour" with nine stops in Kansas next week. In an earlier interview Marshall had said "Just like Jesus said, 'The poor will always be with us,' There is a group of people that just don't want health care and aren't going to take care of themselves. Just, like, homeless people. I think just morally, spiritually, socially, just don't want health care. The Medicaid population, which is a free credit card, as a group, do probably the least preventive medicine and taking care of themselves and eating healthy and exercising. And I'm not judging, I'm just saying socially that's where they are.

STUDY FINDS LEGAL CANNABIS WILL CAUSE A $2 BILLION DROP IN BEER SALES, ALCOHOL LOBBIES FREAKING OUT
B U T - read on:
Actually, one of the biggest things that does drop when cannabis is made legal is Americans’ dependence on pharmaceutical painkillers.
Not only have opioid overdose deaths dropped a full fourth in states with legal marijuana, but the Guardian reports,
Medicare saved roughly $165m in 2013, according to the study, which estimated that expenditures for Medicare Part D, the portion of the government-funded health insurance program that subsidizes prescription drug costs, would drop by $470m annually if medical marijuana were legalized nationally.
Hm. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this would be why Big Pharma has turned into one of the biggest anti-legalization lobbies, spending some $19 million against legal marijuana in 2015 alone.

The bill also exempts transactions in precious metals from state capital gains taxes, thus ensuring that people are not punished by the taxman for rejecting Federal Reserve notes in favor of gold or silver. Since inflation increases the value of precious metals, these taxes give the government one more way to profit from the Federal Reserve’s currency debasement.

Replacement Chemical In BPA-Free Bottles Also Disrupts Estrogen In The Body

By Karen Foster

A compound called BPA is being phased out of all plastic packaging due to fears it may disrupt our hormones — but its replacement may be just as harmful.

BPA, or bisphenol A, is often found in disposable water bottles and babies’ milk bottles and cups. Small amounts can dissolve into the food and drink inside these containers. It is a dangerous chemical linked to health concerns from digestive problems to issues with brain development. It was previously found present in around two billion products in the U.S. that were used on a daily basis...

Governments produce nothing, so governments must live off of the producers. It is the nature of governments to grow bigger and bigger and consume more and more of the national wealth.

Government finally consumes more than the people can produce. -- So then, modern bankruptcy of national governments is not overspending. It is overconsumption of the national wealth.

The in-person experience will stay largely as it is, but online lessons will evolve indefinitely toward better techniques, more content, and more scientifically-proven methods. Best practices will propagate quickly online.

This American-Made Washing Machine Is So Good It's Got a Cult Following

Speed Queen is a Wisconsin-based brand — and yes, they build all of their washers here in the U.S. of A. — that’s been around for 100 years, but don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of them. They don’t run any national advertisements, and you won’t catch one of their washers in a big-box store.

But people who have discovered the brand are big fans of the durability and cost-effectiveness of its washing machines. Speed Queen spokesman Randy Radtke says sales of the company's home washing machines have been growing lately, partly due to people’s discontent with the way other brands grow mold or conk out after a few years. Millennial homeowners in particular have shown a willingness to pay more for what they perceive as better-quality products, including household appliance. Speed Queen buyers also like that the machines don’t have a lot of complicated parts.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden, based in Las Vegas, sent a Feb. 16 letter to the Moapa Paiute Tribe reminding the tribe that the transport, possession, use and distribution of marijuana is illegal under federal law. The marijuana trade show and festival, planned for March 4 and 5, would be in violation of that law, according to the letter obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal.

GMO Potatoes Will Hit Stores and Restaurants Soon…If They Haven’t Already

If you prefer to avoid genetically modified foods, here’s another one to avoid. GMO potatoes will be joining GMO apples at a store near you very soon – if they aren’t there already.

Last week, the FDA added their approval (again) to that of the EPA, giving the go-ahead for these potatoes to be planted this spring for harvest in the fall.

The rollout of the spuds has been cloaked in a fair bit of secrecy. Generally, one would expect something “new and improved” to be presented via a high-budget advertising campaign, press releases, and a giant hurrah...

WENDY’S INSTALLS ROBOTS IN 1,000 STORES TO COUNTER MINIMUM WAGE

The fast food industry is now reacting to the mandatory minimum wage increases… For the last several years, the Free Thought Project has been predicting what will happen as government continued to arbitrarily fix wages across the US. As politicians deceive their constituents into thinking financial success can come through an act of legislation, employers will find a way to offset this cost. It will either come through higher prices or, in this most recent Wendy’s case — robots.

Georgia Senate Passes Bill to Expand Health Freedom

By Michael Maharrey

Last week, the Georgia Senate unanimously passed a bill that would help facilitate healthcare freedom in the state.

A coalition of six Republican senators sponsor Senate Bill 50 (SB50). Titled the “Direct Primary Care Act,” the legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code. It also stipulates that a physician offering, marketing, selling, or entering into a direct primary care agreement shall not be required to obtain a certificate of authority or license other than to maintain a current license to practice medicine with the State of Georgia...

March 2017: The end of a 100 year global debt super cycle is way overdue

For more than 100 years global debt levels have been rising, and now we are potentially facing the greatest debt crisis in all of human history. Never before have we seen such a level of debt saturation all over the planet, and pretty much everyone understands that this is going to end very, very badly at some point. The only real question is when it will happen.

Subway was among five fast-food restaurants whose chicken the Canadian Broadcast Corporation had tested.

Lawsuit: 5 automakers knew of Takata air bag dangers

Lawyers for victims and their families suing air bag maker Takata Corp. and five automakers allege the car companies knew Takata’s air bags were dangerous yet continued to use them for years because the devices were inexpensive and they had a desire for uninterrupted revenues in the billions.

“They were focused on the low price of Takata’s inflators and concerned that if they stopped using (them), they might not have a sufficient supply, which would prevent them from selling vehicles and generating billions of dollars in revenue,” said a status report filed Monday in Miami by lead plaintiff attorney Peter Prieo.

The allegations against Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Ford and BMW were made on the same day the Japanese auto supplier will be in a Detroit courtroom to plead guilty to wire fraud and pay $1 billion in criminal penalties stemming from the company’s fraudulent conduct related to sales of defective air bag inflators.

Takata pleads guilty, to pay $1B in criminal penalties

The Takata Corp. pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to wire fraud and agreed to pay $1 billion in criminal penalties stemming from the company’s fraudulent conduct related to sales of defective air bag inflators.

U.S. District Court Judge George Caram Steeh said he approved a $25 million fine for the company, even though sentencing guidelines allowed a fine up to $1.5 billion, because wiping out the company would prohibit victims in the case from being compensated.

“Destruction of the company would be appropriate, but the interest of the victims and the (automakers who bought air bags) dictates we do the best we can without destroying the corporation,” Steeh said.

The surveillance society is a secretive apparatus of intrusion and deception. An enigma within a disinformation perception of reality is at the core all activities of spooks. One of the most pervasive and all reaching agencies is the NSA.

There’s another way for a bubble to end, but it practically never happens. Responsible bankers and lenders could prevent the bubble’s formation by simply not lending ridiculous amounts. It almost never happens for the same reasons that people buy overpriced houses: greed and our social programming to follow the herd. If all your banker buddies are making big bucks writing loans to anyone who can fog a mirror, then you’ll be rewarded for doing the same. Nobody wants to be the lone, unpopular voice urging restraint when the crowds are going wild.

The Problem with Gold-Backed Currencies (Oh yeah, They must be redeemable in gold…)

Any nation issuing a gold-backed currency can't control the global price of gold, and so that nation's currency is hostage to fluctuations beyond its control. If the issuing nation sets a peg to gold, that peg is subject to the whims of the central bank and state--in other words, the peg is simply another flavor of fiat currency. Simply put, there is no way to back a reserve currency or a fractional reserve banking system with gold. It's easy to say that a world with very little credit would be a good world, but it would be a world with limited debt-based consumption, i.e. a world with little "growth." And without "growth," the system implodes.
Only true if you have to borrow that gold-backed currency at interest from a central bank. This appears to be FED anti-gold propaganda.

That isn’t an easy sell, because the price of the treatments ranges from $40,000 to $94,000 — or, because the treatments take three months, as much as $1,000 per day.

Everyone knows that the federal government can’t run healthcare, and yet the democrats pushed it through anyway without a single republican vote.

Medical Cannabis — A Vastly Underutilized Therapeutic Option?

By Dr. Mercola

Cannabis is a vastly underutilized therapeutic option that has been wrongly vilified by U.S. regulatory agencies. In this interview, Dr. Margaret Gedde, a Stanford-trained pathologist and award-winning researcher, discusses the therapeutic value of this plant.

While initially focused on the conventional medical model, Gedde eventually transitioned over to holistic, drug-free health care in 2004. At present, she runs an alternative medical practice in Colorado, the home of medical marijuana, as it was one of the first states to widely legalize and apply it.

Gedde specializes in the use of cannabis, especially for the use of pain, thereby allowing her patients to get off dangerous drugs like opiates, which have created a public health emergency of massive proportions.

Organic Canola Oil: A Food Fallacy

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Ever since the late 1990s, when canola oil started to become a ubiquitous ingredient in food processing and restaurant fare, consumers have been ingesting it, literally, by the tons!

Canada produces 20 percent of the world’s canola oil. The U.S. imports an average of 510,000 tons of canola oil per year!

Canola is a heated and processed oil using anywhere from 80 – 90°Celsius and even 120°Celsius temperature in the processing, or 176 – 194° Fahrenheit to 248° Fahrenheit. That would be in addition to any additional heating a cook uses when preparing foods—something to factor in to your cooking...

I have gotten into the habit of removing batteries from devices when I am not using them (a huge waste of time) but some of the devices I had to throw away preceded that wisdom.

It is nice to see a company going back to leak-proof batteries backed with a warranty to replace ruined devices, which is why they get a free plug!
