Stumble No More

Stumbleupon is going out of business June 30th 2018.
All your stories over the last 7 years are still there at the new page Mix.com
https://mix.com/ffranklin92

Over 85,000 likes were brought over out of just over 110,00 likes. Most of your stories I stumbled are still there at Mix.com
None of the followers transferred over though. Almost 2,000 of them.
It will take awhile to rebuild traffic.
So if anybody wants to follow the new page at Mix I sure would appreciate it.

May 25 16:33

Why is StumbleUpon shutting down?

Stumble is shutting down. They want us to transfer to something called Mix. We can keep our user name and likes but not our followers. I hit 110,000 posts today.
I will keep you posted.

Trump 2020 Campaign Puts Facebook And Twitter On Notice Over Conservative Censorship

Donald Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, along with Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, have written a letter calling for the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter to address concerns over conservative censorship ahead of the 2020 election, as well as a call for transparency.

The letter comes one day after a judge ruled that President Trump is no longer allowed to block Twitter users - deeming the platform a public forum, and that "the White House acts unlawfully when it excludes people from this forum." Consequently, will Twitter and Facebook be required to provide protections for conservatives whose voices are being muted? Parscale and McDaniel are now pushing for that, calling out the Silicon Valley behemoths for censorship.

FLASHBACK - Jews DO Control The Media

We Jews are a funny breed. We love to brag about every Jewish actor. Sometimes we even pretend an actor is Jewish just because we like him enough that we think he deserves to be on our team. We brag about Jewish authors, Jewish politicians, Jewish directors. Every time someone mentions any movie or book or piece of art, we inevitably say something like, “Did you know that he was Jewish?” That’s just how we roll.

We’re a driven group, and not just in regards to the art world. We have, for example, AIPAC, which was essentially constructed just to drive agenda in Washington DC. And it succeeds admirably. And we brag about it. Again, it’s just what we do.

But the funny part is when any anti-Semite or anti-Israel person starts to spout stuff like, “The Jews control the media!” and “The Jews control Washington!”

BEX ALERT - Russia in cyber attack plot to 'CRIPPLE the CITY OF LONDON' after football World Cup

An anonymous minister has allegedly said “things are eerily quiet on the Russian front” and the lack of action is making the Government feel uneasy.

The minister has suggested an attack could bring the country’s banking quarter to a standstill.

Nicholas Watt, Newsnight’s Political Editor, revealed on last night’s programme the Government insider had told him: “There is a debate going on in Government, things are eerily quiet on the Russian front.”

According to Mr Watt: “What this minister said is that Moscow is biding its time for the World Cup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Russia is doing nothing ... and that looks SUSPICIOUS!"

Facebook and Google could be fined BILLIONS after being accused of ignoring GDPR rules and 'forcing' users to give them their private data

Facebook and Google may already have fallen foul of European privacy laws which took effect today, in a move that critics say could cost the companies billions.

As of today, firms that collect or process personal information online must now comply with new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules.

Companies should be informing their customers about the new regulations and giving them the choice of whether to continue giving them access to their data - but still be able to use their sites if they don't.

Campaigners say that Facebook, Google, Instagram and WhatsApp are breaking the terms of GDPR by threatening customers and suggesting they will be unable to use their sites unless they agree to share their data.

Campaign group NOYB.EU says it has filed legal complaints about this behaviour.

MUELLER'S MEDIA CONTACTS TO BE PUBLIC BY SEPTEMBER

Thousands of government documents that should reveal the details of special counsel Robert Mueller’s contacts with the media – even though that may seem unusual since he’s running a secret investigation – now are scheduled to become public by early September.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan Thursday gave the government until Sept. 4 to provide thousand of documents that already have been identified under a Freedom of Information Act case.

America’s Economic Anarchy

America is severely struggling despite the dishonest and incurious mainstream media narrative of a booming economy rife with economic growth. The economy is barely chugging along. Anarchy is the new financial reality for millions and millions of American households. The crash will come hard. The fall will be swift. And the majority will be taken aback at how this all came to be despite the many points I laid out above.

Blaming the Victims of Israel’s Gaza Massacre

On the 70th anniversary of Israel’s so-called “declaration of independence,” the United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem—a city Israel claims as its own, despite what international law says on the matter—and Palestinians undertook unarmed protests in reaction to the move and as part of the Great Return March. Although to this point, the only Israeli casualty during the entire cycle of demonstrations has been one “lightly wounded” soldier, considerable space in coverage of the massacres is devoted to blaming Palestinians for their own slaughter.

Two of the first three paragraphs in an NBC report (5/14/18) provided Israel’s rationalizations for its killing spree. The second sentence in the article says that the Israeli military accused Hamas of “leading a terrorist operation under the cover of masses of people,” adding that “firebombs and explosive devices” as well as rocks were being thrown towards the barrier.

PROPAGANDA 101: HOW TO DEFEND A MASSACRE

Rosner fully justifies the massacre, with no apologies, regret, or second thoughts. He believes the killing of these Palestinians was correct, and that they deserved to die. Now you might, as I do, think this attitude is so self-evidently barbaric that even to debate it is to surrender a little bit of one’s humanity. But Rosner’s position is not a fringe one, and the good liberals at the New York Times consider it within the boundaries of reasonable discourse, so unfortunately we have not yet achieved the kind of world in which such thinking is “self-evidently” immoral. (This reflects very badly on all of us.) I’d like, then, to go through Rosner’s argument paragraph by paragraph, to show how he constructs his defense of murder, why it might be persuasive to people, and why it fails and should horrify everyone.

European Lawmakers Disappointed at Facebook CEO's Testimony

The testimony of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg before the European Parliament was insufficient, as the social network founder was able to avoid uncomfortable questions, several members of the parliament pointed out.

Zuckerberg's hour-long interview took place on Tuesday. The format of the hearing allowed the Facebook CEO only several minutes at the end of the session to answer questions. However, he promised to provide written answers to all inquiries.

"Today's pre-cooked format was inappropriate & ensured #Zuckerberg could avoid our questions. I trust that written answers from Facebook will be forthcoming. If these are not accurately answered in detail, the EU competition authorities must be activated & legislation sharpened," Guy Verhofstadt, the president of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), wrote on his Twitter.

SNOPES FINALLY EXPOSED AS CIA OPERATION

We have investigative journalist Wayne Madsen to thank for checking the facts on the most well-known of “fact-checking” websites and confirming what many had suspected for years since the 1995 founding of Snopes.com. According to Madsen, Snopes was formed by the Central Intelligence Agency for the express purpose of stifling subversive outlets and spreading disinformation and propaganda on the Internet. Until 2013, the CIA had to do this on the down-low because propaganda wasn’t legal yet.

Facebook & Atlantic Council unite: Now social media giant serves NATO’s agenda

Facebook has engaged a think tank funded by weapons manufacturers, branches of the US military and Middle-Eastern monarchies to safeguard the democratic process. It's akin to hiring arsonists to run the fire brigade.

If Facebook truly wanted to “protect democracy and elections worldwide,” it would build a broad coalition of experts and activists from a wide and disparate range of the countries it serves. Instead, the American social media giant has outsourced the task to NATO’s propaganda wing.

Syrian Army Has Full Control of Metro Damascus After ISIS Ouster

The Syrian Army has issued a statement today declaring victory in the fight over metro Damascus, saying that effective Monday Damascus and all of its surroundings are “completely secure” and under military and government control.

Expelling rebels and jihadists from suburbs of Damascus has been a priority for awhile. The defeat of rebels in Eastern Ghouta was a major step in that direction, but it was only this weekend, with the evacuation of the last few ISIS fighters, that the whole area was secure.

ISIS forces managed to infiltrate the Yarmouk refugee camp and surrounding area, south of Damascus. The refugee camp, which once housed a large number of Palestinians, has been contested repeatedly since the Syrian War began.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats to the Russian, Syrian, and Iranian forces which have contributed to making this happen.

But this vile, US/NATO backed war against Al Assad has left the country in utter ruins, and the question of how Syria can get help in rebuilding must be asked, and answered quickly.

Why did Facebook ban The Electronic Intifada’s ad for “Killing Gaza”?

Facebook banned an advert paid for by The Electronic Intifada a day after it was approved and was running successfully.

The ban lasted for almost three days before the ad was restored without explanation.

This apparent act of censorship comes as Facebook is deepening its collaboration with Israel lobby groups and a pro-war Washington think tank to impose tighter controls on what people are allowed to see online, especially about Israel’s violations of Palestinian rights.

CUSTOMGROW420 AND MANY OTHER CANNABIS CHANNELS DELETED FROM YOUTUBE

Joel Hradecky, also known as Customgrow420, is a popular online video-maker and was the biggest weed-tuber on YouTube, which is currently the world’s leading video platform.
He’s also a legal cannabis patient living in Washington in the US.

Hillary Clinton urges Yale class to buy newspaper subscriptions

Who says Hillary Clinton dislikes the media?

Speaking to Yale graduates over the weekend, the former candidate for president urged the class to stop the spread of fake news and help support journalism by paying for it.

"It means calling out actual fake news when we see it and supporting brave journalists and their reporting maybe even by subscribing to a newspaper," she said.

As Michelle Wolf, the comedian who attended the White House correspondents dinner, noted, President Donald Trump's election has been a boon to most of the media business. The New York Times revenue topped $1 billion in 2017. In the final quarter of last year, it signed up 157,000 new subscribers, taking full-year subscriptions to 2.6 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, yeah; the same corporately controlled papers which declared, in lock step with the Bush Administration that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction", and refuse, en masse, to report on the US-enabled, Saudi genocide in Yemen?!?

OF COURSE, this is precisely the kind of media Clinton would want Americans to rely upon, when the independent media honestly reported the truth about the Clinton Foundation before the election, and the big presstitutes did not!!

Pro-war pundits on US airwaves

In 2008, the New York Times revealed a secret Pentagon programme which trained and briefed former military generals to push pro-Pentagon talking points to a compliant news media. Today, former military personnel are still regular contributors on every major cable news network despite some of them being the very same figures who pushed for the Iraq war.

"Being one of these former military official TV pundits means never having to say you're sorry," says Jeff Cohen, founding director of the Park Center for Independent Media and associate professor of journalism at Ithaca College. "These people have gotten it wrong repeatedly and they're on the air forever."

The government's troll training program

Did you know that the government recruits, trains and employs “trolls” to disrupt intelligent conversation on the Internet?

Yes, they do.

You can see the whole video at TruthStreamMedia.com. It’s called “Yes, There is a Government Troll Training Program.”

We ran the end of the video which asks the big question:

If independent news outlets aren’t reliable, why are hundreds (if not thousands) of people are employed full time “trolling” web sites and why does YouTube actively interfere with the statistics of popular videos?

Controversial hidden camera programme reveals Tunisian links with Israel

A private Tunisian TV channel has gone ahead with the broadcast of a controversial hidden camera exposé programme. “Shalom” tackles the issue of normalisation with the Israeli occupation, Quds Press has reported.

Tunisna Channel explained that the programme shows a scenario whereby a politician or public figure is supposedly invited for an interview with CNN. It turns out, though, that the “interviewer” is actually an Israeli official offering the guest the opportunity to deal with Israel in exchange for financial and political support.

According to producer Walid Zribi, the “guests” have been putting pressure on Tunisna not to broadcast “Shalom”. The media expert explained that the programme “aims to expose Tunisian political figures who are willing to deal with Israel.”

BEX ALERT - Bill Maher and Bari Weiss Cruelly Blame Palestinians for Gaza Massacre

During the embassy opening, a taunting event all but designed to inflame tensions, Israeli forces brutally massacred at least 58 Palestinians protesting along the Gaza border—including women and children. Many were killed by sniper fire hundreds of yards away. Weiss, however, saw no connection between the protests and the embassy launch.

“Bill, I love you, but the riots were not caused by the embassy move,” said Weiss. “They’re not linked. When Hamas attacked Israel in 2008, when Hamas attacked Israel in 2012, when it attacked Israel in 2014, the embassy was in Tel Aviv all of those times… They intentionally moved up the day so that it would coincide with the day of the embassy move so that we would all be disgusted and heartbroken when we saw this horrible split-screen of Ivanka Trump, looking like she was at a country club, next to poor, desperate people dying in Gaza.”

“I agree with you,” Maher replied. “They planned that. Absolutely.”

'Meghan Markle could be Queen... after tragedy' – US journalist makes SHOCKING claim

Speaking on the US Today programme, journalist Megyn Kelly outlined the macabre chain of events which would see Ms Markle become the Monarch.

She said: “The question is whether we could have an American Queen someday.

“The truth is, in order for her to become queen, a lot of hideous and tragic things have to happen.”

Co-host Al Roker interrupted, shouting: “Thanks for bringing that up. Oh, what a happy day it is.

‘Bomb Putin bridge’ journo thinks he’s trolling Moscow with jail comments… but there’s a catch

The story, however, took a bizarre twist on Thursday, when Rogan said on Twitter that Ukraine’s foreign minister had contacted him to express the support of his people and offer protection from Russian law enforcement.

Had a great conversation with @MFA_Ukraine minister Pavlo Klimkin just now. He said the Ukrainian people supported my piece and that Ukraine would help me if Russia tries to send me to the Black Dolphin. Some good banter.

— Tom Rogan (@TomRtweets) May 17, 2018
The minister, Pavlo Klimkin, then responded by saying he never spoke to Rogan, adding that his article “isn’t worth commenting” on and that the entire story may be “another Russia-led provocation.” The bold effort to amplify a new fictional Putin threat was utterly wasted, it seems.

To ‘protect democracy,’ scandal-fearing Facebook teams up with ‘unbiased’ Atlantic Council

Would you like a think tank advocating acts of terrorism, war and suppression of the media working with Facebook to protect democracy and elections worldwide? If so, great news!

Facebook is “excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems,” Katie Harbath, Facebook’s director for global politics and government outreach, announced on Thursday.

“Experts” from the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRL) will work closely with Facebook’s “security, policy and product teams” to offer “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world,” Harbath added.

Passive media whitewash Israel’s massacre in Gaza

As Israel slaughtered dozens of unarmed Palestinians in Gaza this week, prominent media outlets employed innocuous headlines to obscure the horrific reality.

In the video above, RT correspondent Anya Parampil points to some examples of what she calls “an almost across the board obfuscation of Israel’s responsibility for the violence.”

A BBC headline read for instance, “Gaza’s deadliest day of violence in years,” while The Guardian ran with “Fatal clashes in Gaza after opening of US embassy.”

The word “clashes,” Parampil observes, “would lead you to believe there are casualties or injuries on the Israeli side.”

In fact after seven weeks in which Israel has killed some 100 Palestinians and injured 12,600 others, Israel has reported one minor injury to a soldier.

Ratings Crisis: CNN Suffers Viewership Collapse of Nearly 30 Percent

Last week, during the all-important primetime hours, CNN was only able to average 844K total viewers. During this same week last year, CNN averaged 1.191 million. That is a -29 percent collapse.

CNN’s average total day viewers disintegrated by -25 percent, 841K compared to 635K.

In other words, throughout the day last week, CNN could only attract an average of 635,000 total viewers.

Peers defeat government by backing resurrection of inquiry into press behaviour

The government has been defeated in the House of Lords as peers backed a new Leveson inquiry into the behaviour of the press by 252 votes to 213.

The outcome puts the unelected chamber on course for a constitutional clash with the Commons, which had previously rejected a demand for a further investigation into the relationship between the media and police.

The amendment would force the government to establish a new inquiry into allegations of data protection breaches by national news publishers.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg agrees to meet senior EU politicians over concerns about company's practices

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to travel to Brussels to meet with senior European Parliament politicians behind closed doors to address their concerns about his company’s handling of personal data.

MEPs have long wanted to question the Silicon Valley CEO about Facebook’s data practices, with a particular interest in how the social network’s advert targeting might be affecting elections.

Mr Zuckerberg is expected to visit the EU capital as early as next week, though no specific date for his trip has yet been announced. He will meet with the leaders of the Parliament’s political groups, the so-called conference of presidents.

BBC’s ‘mindless’ late night Royal Wedding push notification pushes some over the edge

The BBC has annoyed the hell out of the Royal wedding weary public with a late-night push notification to alert the world that the bride’s father might/might not attend. For many, it was one too far.

Exasperated by the corporation’s perennial effort to keep them updated on all things Megs-and-Harry, Britons have taken to Reddit to air their grievances.

“It is not acceptable to ping the entire nation (who have it installed) at 9:30pm to tell them that someones (sic) father might not attend a wedding,” Reddit user Purpose2 complained. “This is an abuse of the trust that we place in you.”

Google: Christianity Must Be Censored

After their ads were rejected, CPH contacted Google and was told “remarketing ads based on religious beliefs was not allowed.” CPH then requested a manager review this decision, which was denied, and were told the only way to bring the ads “into compliance” was to remove all “faith-based content.”

Soon after, a Google AdWords representative explained, “the disapproval resulted from the fact that the items in the ad and on the CPH website refer to Jesus and/or the Bible.” If CPH removed all references to Jesus or the Bible, their ads would be reinstated.

Kintz wasn’t amused.
