KellyAnne Conway Forced To Her Knees In Oval Office By Army of Sweaty Men: COUCH-GATE!!!!!!

COUCH-GATE THREATENS to turn white house upside down!

WILL TREY GOWDY CALL AN EMERGENCY INVESTIGATION INTO THE INCREASING NUMBERS OF INAPPROPRIATE SITTING POSITIONS IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION!?

INTERNET EXPRESSES HORROR AS THE LUST-RIDDEN LEGION OF INNER CITY MEN AND THEIR WANTON MINIONS CONSUMED CONWAY WITH THEIR EYES!!!

“I WANT ME SOME OF DAT!”

The main couch on the left side of the Oval Office has two primary cushions on it, divided by THE PRESIDENTIAL SEAM. Ms. Conway was seen “sliding her hand into the space between the two cushions” as if to “tease the men and cause them to imagine that she was sliding her hand between their butt-cheeks”.. observed one Facebook posting.

The horror of this incident makes the Israel and Palestine conflict pale in comparison!

This is BREAKING NEWS!!!

Google and Uber: Obama’s Sex Scandal Partners and Financiers, have over 1000 sex scandal charges between them!

Uber exec fired for allegedly hiding sexual harassment claim, report says

A top engineering executive at Uber, Amit Singhal, is out five weeks after his hire was announced. According to a report in the tech blog Recode, Singhal failed to disclose that he’d left his previous job at Google because of a sexual harassment allegation.

Singhal denied the allegation and said he left Google a year ago for his own reasons.

The dustup is just the latest sign of turmoil at Uber, which last week found itself in an unrelated sexual harassment firestorm . That stemmed from a detailed essay published by a former female Uber engineer, who charged that her prospects at the company evaporated after she complained about sexual advances from her boss. In the post about her year at Uber, Susan Fowler said the company’s human resources department ignored her complaints because her boss was a high performer.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has called for an independent investigation of those issues, and the company has hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to help.

In a statement emailed to The Associated Press, Singhal said: “Harassment is unacceptable in any setting. I certainly want everyone to know that I do not condone and have not committed such behavior. In my 20-year career, I’ve never been accused of anything like this before and the decision to leave Google was my own.”

According to Recode, Singhal left Google after executives there informed him of a harassment allegation lodged by an employee, one an internal investigation had found “credible.” Citing unnamed sources at Uber, Recode said the company did “extensive background checks of Singhal” but did not uncover “any hint of the circumstances of his departure from Google.”

Representatives for Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday. Uber declined to comment beyond confirming that Singhal is no longer with the company.

Elon Musk’s Space Disaster?

SpaceX to Fly Passengers On Private Trip Around the Moon in 2018 in Exploding Poorly Shielded Space X Disaster-Waiting-To-Happen

Update for 4:38 p.m. EST: SpaceX will fly two private citizens on a passenger flight around the moon in 2018 using a Dragon 2 spacecraft and the massive new Falcon Heavy rocket, the company’s founder Elon Musk announced today (Feb. 27).

 

The two private citizens — who have not been named — approached SpaceX about the trip, according to a statement from the company. The individuals will be the only crew members on board what is expected to be about a week-long trip around the moon, according to Musk, who spoke with reporters during a phone conference today. The names of the two individuals will be announced later pending the result of initial health and fitness tests, the statement said.

 

The moon flight is scheduled to take place after SpaceX plans to fly NASA astronauts to the International Space Station as part of the Commercial Crew Program. Here’s a look at SpaceX’s Dragon crew capsules, Falcon Heavy rockets and more as we complete our main story:

 

 

Editor’s note: This story will be updated with more details from Elon Musk’s teleconference with reporters today.

Our morning preview:

 

Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk says his private spaceflight company SpaceX will make an announcement Monday (Feb. 27), but exactly what will be announced is a mystery. 

 

In a Twitter post last night, Musk offered a tantalizing hint of something new coming from SpaceX: “SpaceX announcement tomorrow at 1 p.m. PST,” Musk wrote on Twitter. That pegs the reveal for 4 p.m. EST (2100 GMT) if, like Space.com here, you’re in an Eastern time zone. 

 

 

An inquiry to SpaceX representatives last night yielded little more than a tantalizing “stay tuned” response. So we’re on pins and needles waiting to hear what the private spaceflight company will be unveiling today. Here are some possibilities that come to mind:

 

First Crew Dragon test flight date (unpiloted): Earlier this month, ahead of SpaceX’s first Dragon launch from NASA’s Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Floriday, company president Gwynne Shotwell hinted that the company was aiming for the first uncrewed launched of its Crew Dragon spacecraft near the end of the year. Could the date be set?

 

 

Dragon spacesuits: NASA has tapped SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft to fly American astronauts to and from the International Space Station, but SpaceX has not yet unveiled its spacesuit design for the seven-person space capsule. Boeing, which will also fly astronauts for NASA, unveiled its Boeing Blue spacesuit last month. During her talk with reporters at Launch Pad 39A this month, Shotwell hinted that SpaceX spacesuits would be pretty cool to see. 

 

Dragon final interor design: We do know that NASA astronauts have been practicing with SpaceX’s Dragon flight controls setup because NASA has posted a series of photos of the session.  

 

Falcon Heavy test flight date: The Falcon Heavy, SpaceX’s new heavy-lift rocket, which looks like three Falcon 9 boosters strapped together, is scheduled for a debut test flight sometime this year. Could it be ready to announce a target date. 

 

Reusable rocket announcement: SpaceX has pioneered commercial reusable rocket technology and is expected to launch the first reused Falcon 9 rocket booster in March during a commercial satellite launch. Could something else be in the works?

 

New launch site: SpaceX currently has two launch sites in Florida (NASA’s Launch Pad 39A and a pad under repair at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station); as well as a pad at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. But the company has also been hard at work building its own launch site in Brownsville, Texas. Is it time for an update on that new private spaceport?

 

Satellite fleet: SpaceX is planning to build a constellation of 4,000 broadband satellites in a factory in Seattle. Could that be what today’s about?

 

And finally…

 

 

Something about Mars: SpaceX and Mars go together like peanut butter and jelly. Musk has often said that he wants to make a colony on Mars possible to make humanity a two-planet species. Last year, he unveiled SpaceX’s concept for an Interplanetary Transport System that would use a fleet of giant reusable spacecraft to ferry colonists to Mars hundreds at a time. In the near term, SpaceX is also drawing up plans to send an uncrewed Dragon capsule to Mars in the next few years. Could a new Red Planet reveal come today? 

Those are just some of the possibilities that Elon Musk and SpaceX could unveil today. What are YOU hoping to hear from SpaceX at 4 p.m. EST (2100 GMT)? Let us know in the comments below.

Tesla Motors Was Created by Corruption and Political Bribery. Never Let Elon Musk Get Away With His Crimes! Why you should NEVER buy a Tesla, or anything that Elon Musk Makes!

 

 

 

— If you have an ounce of morality, then you will not want to help Musk & Tesla profit from the crony political corruption that created them. Musk exists because he bribes politicians & acts as an illegal campaign financing conduit.

 

— DOT/NHTSA has covered up years of reports about an acceleration surge issue that can suddenly crash your Tesla into walls and drive it off cliffs. It is either a known hacking attack or the effect of WiFi on Tesla electronics. Either can kill you.

 

— If you believe in God, or are in any way religious, Musk & Tesla are pure evil & exist because of hyper-corruption. You don’t want to contribute to their evil or be part of it in any way. You are funding evil & supporting criminal corruption by buying a Tesla or any Elon Musk owned product like Solar City, Tesla, Space X, Hyperloop, etc.!

 

— If you read about the dirty deeds and cocaine dealings with the In-Q-Tel airplanes called “Cocaine 1” & “Cocaine 2”, & the corruption behind the company called In-Q-Tel & Musk’s software programmer who ran “The Silk Road” drug & murder service then you must be concerned that many In-Q-Tel people work for Musk. Why does Musk need dirty druggies & spies on his payroll unless he is running covert drug and business spying activities?

 

Musk is anti-American and Anti-Worker Rights and has been caught flying in H1-B cheap offshore labor and exploiting immigrants for his deadly profits.

 

— If you are a Democrat then know that Elon Musk cost you the Hillary Clinton campaign because of his payola schemes. If you are a Republican, know that Elon Musk is the epitome of the worst form of DNC crony corruption you ever saw!

 

— Musk bribed California politicians to give him hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars & resources he never earned or worked for. He only got those crony payola perks handed to him because he operated as an illicit front for corrupt campaign financing for Dianne Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

 

— Multiple parties have filed “Demands For The Arrest of Elon Musk” with the FBI, DOJ, AG, FTC, SEC and other law enforcement agencies. It is not likely that Musk, or his companies will survive a full investigation.

 

Tesla and Solyndra sit on the same land in Fremont, CA. Solyndra was raided by the FBI for corruption. Tesla SHOULD be raided by the FBI for corruption. Both companies had kick-back crony payola schemes with Senator Dianne Feinstein. She owned the land, lease, HR, construction company and supplier interests and stock for both companies in one of the most massive conflict-of-interest crony financing schemes in U.S. history. Elon Musk and the Feinsteins are corruption partners.

 

People who see you in a Tesla think of you as a “Tone Deaf Douchebag”, “Tesla Tool!”, “Arrogant Prick”, “Ostentatious Obama Oaf”, “Sheep”, “Mindless Yuppie Scum”, “Misogynistic Silicon Valley Clone”, “Self-promoting Elitist Douche”, “Fake News Reading Main Stream Boob”, “Naive Idiot” or other bad things.

 

Elon Musk is one of the main financiers behind Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton, both of whom have been charged with corruption. Musk endlessly tweets lies & “…No I didn’t do those bad things” BS but nobody else supports him.

 

Tesla financial records are “cooked” in a fraudulent manner to make the stock market valuation of Tesla a falsely manipulated factor. Musk uses “pre-orders”, by his own investors, to fake sales and wrote emails to customers asking them to put small deposits down so he could book them as fully paid sales in one of a large number of stock and loan valuation frauds. Musk and his investors practice stock market skims, pump-and-dumps and Flash Boy manipulations.

 

Lithium ion batteries are blowing up, starting fires &, generally, destroying people’s homes, cars, electronics & physical health. Boeing was ordered to stop flying the 787 Dreamliner because it’s Lithium ion batteries are catching fire spontaneously. A group of silicon valley venture capitalists forced/leveraged the government to buy & pay for these specific batteries, that they have stock in, in order to benefit their profit margins. Other batteries don’t have these problems. They knew about the dangers from day one, but put greed ahead of safety. There are thousands & thousands of reports of spontaneous lithium ion fires but the VC’s who back lithium ion pay to keep this information hushed up. Millions of these batteries have been recalled for fire risk. The VC’s tried to push as many as they could before they got caught. Now they are caught. These VC’s & the Senators they bribed own stock in lithium mining companies too. HERE IS THE PROOF:

 

HTTP://LITHIUMBATTERYCOVERUP.COM

 

Tesla Motors has filed a patent which states the following , THESE ARE TESLA MOTORS WORDS warning about a crisis, the level of which they never disclosed to the consumer: “Thermal runaway is of major concern since a single incident can lead to significant property damage &, in some circumstances, bodily harm or loss of life. When a battery undergoes thermal runaway, it typically emits a large quantity of smoke, jets of flaming liquid electrolyte, & sufficient heat to lead to the combustion & destruction of materials in close proximity to the cell. If the cell undergoing thermal runaway is surrounded by one or more additional cells as is typical in a battery pack, then a single thermal runaway event can quickly lead to the thermal runaway of multiple cells which, in turn, can lead to much more extensive collateral damage. Regardless of whether a single cell or multiple cells are undergoing this phenomenon, if the initial fire is not extinguished immediately, subsequent fires may be caused that dramatically expand the degree of property damage. For example, the thermal runaway of a battery within an unattended laptop will likely result in not only the destruction of the laptop, but also at least partial destruction of its surroundings, e.g., home, office, car, laboratory, etc. If the laptop is on-board an aircraft, for example within the cargo hold or a luggage compartment, the ensuing smoke & fire may lead to an emergency landing or, under more dire conditions, a crash landing. Similarly, the thermal runaway of one or more batteries within the battery pack of a hybrid or electric vehicle may destroy not only the car, but may lead to a car wreck if the car is being driven or the destruction of its surroundings if the car is parked”. See whoiselonmusk.com for more…

 

Tesla’s own staff, & every fire department, have now admitted that once a lithium ion fire gets started in a Tesla, that it is impossibleto extinguish burning lithium ion material. This is Telsa’s own words in THEIR patent filing, (You can look it up online) saying that the risk is monumental. Tesla has 6800 lithium ion batteries, any one of which can “go thermal”, start a chain reaction and blow up all of the rest of the 6800+ deadly batteries! Tesla drivers have been burned alive in thermal globs of flaming lithium ion, plastics & metal. Bystanders have heard their horrific screams of unutterable pain & terror as they were burned alive! Tesla fires can’t be extinguished & the bodies are burned into “unrecognizable lumps of charred flesh”, according to fireman.

 

Lithium Ion batteries “go thermal” in peoples pockets, in your notebook, especially in a Tesla & Fisker car. There are tens of thousands of articles documenting this & there is a cover-up by the VC’s that fund these things to keep this fact out-of-sight. Making Lithium Ion batteries poisons the workers who make them. It is a dangerous product that is covered-up by the Obama Administration. Panasonic knows that these batteries are deadly.

 

Tesla only exists to exploit Elon Musk’s briberies. The lithium ion batteries blow up when they get: wet, hot, bumped, over-charged, struck by energy fields, exposed to air or squashed. Lithium ion batteries poison the Earth & that they poison & kill the workers that make them. Lithium ion batteries come from war profiteering in Afghan & Bolivian corruption.

 

Panasonic is Elon Musk’s partner. Panasonic is one of the most corrupt companies in the world. Panasonic has been charged, on multiple continents with: Product dumping, bribery, collusion, price fixing, anti-trust law violations, racketeering, worker abuse, toxic poisoning of workers, & other crimes. It is no wonder that Elon Musk & Panasonic are partners. Tata Motors executive Karl Slym was killed for exposing this fact.

 

Your tax dollars were stolen in order to make Tesla Motors, as part of a political financing kick-back scam. In other words, part of your paycheck was taken away from you in order to buy hookers, rent-boys & private jets for Musk & company.

 

Tesla’s are forged in criminal corruption, so anybody who drives a Tesla must be either ignorant, a weasel or one of the corrupt. The whole world now knows all of the facts in this list so you can never plead ignorance to these crimes.

 

Telsa’s have a huge amount of highly documented defects. The defects are so extensive that Tesla made buyers sign confidentiality agreements to try to hide how messed up their cars are.

 

Tesla’s have killed more people than the main-stream news has reported. The full Tesla death-list is covered up.

 

Musk lied about why he wanted to make electric cars, when, in fact, he actually poisons the environment because Tesla investors wanted to exploit toxic minerals & materials which can’t be recycled in a clean manner

 

No other electric car has been so mundane, & yet had so many problems with it, since the electric car was first sold in the 1800’s. There is nothing “novel” or “amazing” about the Tesla aside from dime store parlor tricks for PR hype.

 

More drunks have crashed Tesla’s, than any other per capita car in the world, per volume of cars made

 

Elon Musk’s co-founders, investors, partners, wives, investors, suppliers & employees have sued him for being a fraud &, essentially, called him an “asshole” in court records.

 

Elon Musk lied on this Department of Energy funding application and the Obama Administration refuses to allow any federal employees or witnesses to testify to these facts in public due to the devastating potential results of these facts.

 

More owners of Tesla’s have been found to cheat on their taxes, & be involved in abuse-based divorces, than almost any other car brand owner. Tesla owners are bad people who rationalize their poor life choices.

 

Elon Musk will lie, cheat & steal in order to self-aggrandize & glorify his egotistical mania. Musk has been documented engaging in over 100 lies which were later proven to be false. He has spent tens of millions of dollars to buy fake news about himself on Twitter, Facebook & Google because he is such a mentally disturbed ego-maniac.

 

None of Elon Musk’s companies would exist if not for taxpayer funded handouts given to him by corrupt politicians in exchange for illegal campaign finance deals with him & his investors.

 

Google, & Tesla, who are financial & political partners, have both been caught spying on consumers & manipulating Internet data in order to cover-up their complicity in huge political corruption & kick-back deals

 

Musk took U.S. taxpayer dollars from the government & then hired cheap off-shore labor & fired U.S. Union workers & domestic workers. He lied to & screwed the NUMMI workers that were working at the Fremont plant.

 

Musk has put over 18 surveillance devices in the Tesla. Anybody can hack those devices & monitor you. WORSE YET, foreign agents have hacked the Tesla & taken over the controls & driven Tesla’s into bystanders & over cliffs.

 

When Erick Strickland was head of the NHTSA he was confronted about DOT safety cover-ups of the Tesla to protect Obama. He quit 48 hours later. The DOT safety cover-ups to protect the Obama campaign finance payola scheme continue to this day. Obama’s Gibbs, Emanual, Plouffe, Axelrod and Carney quit within a week of being threatened with exposure.

 

Tesla’s have had a large number of recalls but Elon Musk refuses to call them “recalls”. Tesla’s have had multiple recalls for SEVERE safety dangers. DOT has been told this, in writing, for years, but wont take action in order to protect Obama.

 

Elon Musk is a bullshit artist who has no original ideas & wears black-turtle neck shirts (like Elizabeth Homes) to try to create a “cult” around himself & convince the world that he is a “Jesus-like” figure when, in fact, he is a clinical sociopath.

 

Tesla is a severe public safety hazard that has been systematically covered up by corrupt politicians.

 

Tesla Motors batteries were promoted by those who wished to exploit the Afghanistan War for personal profit by controlling the Afghan lithium mining fields. Kleiner Perkins and Draper Fisher hyped the “…trillions of $ of lithium in Afganistan.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up on their own.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up when they get wet.

 

Tesla Motors batteries fires cannot be put out by any common fire-fighting resources.

 

Tesla Motors batteries set themselves on fire.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit cancer-causing vapors when they burn.

 

Tesla Motors Vehicles toxicity poison bystanders, nearby vehicular passengers, airline passengers in planes carrying said batteries in their holds, & environments where such incidents occur.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up when bumped by the same level of car incident that would, otherwise, only dent a normal car bumper.

 

In an accident, when a Tesla rolls over, molten metal & plastic can drip on & burn the occupants alive.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit brain damaging chemicals when they burn.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals, burning, or not, that can damage an unborn fetus.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause lung damage.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause liver damage.

 

Per published lawsuits & news reports, the factories that make Tesla Motors batteries have been charged with the deaths, & potentially fatal illness, of over 1000 workers & the poisoning of nearby towns.

 

Tesla Motors batteries become even more dangerous over time, particularly when tasked by electric transportation systems like Hover-boards & Tesla’s. The chemistry in a lithium ion battery changes to become more unstable over time.

 

Tesla Motors batteries were never designed to be used in automobiles. Tesla used non-automotive batteries in one of the most dangerous configurations possible.

 

Tesla Motors occupants experience higher EMF radiation exposure than gasoline vehicle occupants.

 

Elon Musk’s Space X vehicles & Tesla Motors vehicles have both had a higher-than-average number of explosions. This has caused outside experts to doubt Musk’s ability to place safety considerations over his need for hyped-up PR.

 

Leaked Sandia National Labs & FAA research videos dramatically demonstrate the unstoppable, horrific, “re-percussive accelerating domino-effect” explosive fire effect of the Tesla Motors batteries.

 

Tesla’s own “Superchargers” & home 3-prong chargers have set Tesla’s, homes & businesses on fire.

 

Consumer rights groups contacted Erick Strickland, the head of the NHTSA, & charged him with a cover-up. He quit days later. The NHTSA then issued a safety investigation request to Tesla Motors, which would have more publicly exposed these dangers, but the safety investigation was never under-taken due to White House requests & lobbyist bribes, from Tesla, which got the investigation shut down.

 

NEPA regulations for the Tesla NUMMI factory in California & the Nevada Tesla “Gigafactory” have been violated relative to environmental safety standards.

 

Tesla Motors vehicles are not “Factory Built” “like Ford” builds cars, as Tesla professes. They are hand built in small volumes & subjected to numerous defects. Blogs have documented hundreds of defects, as listed by Tesla owners. Tesla has lost at least one LEMON CAR LAWSUIT for defective manufacturing.

 

Tesla’s “showrooms” are often “pop-up” retail storefronts that are in tight-proximity retail centers, putting it’s neighbors at risk of total loss from fire damage.

 

Tesla Motors vehicles have been hacked & taken over. Their doors, steering, listening devices & navigation have been taken over by outside parties. Multiple Tesla have suddenly swerved off the road, over cliffs & into other vehicles, killing bystanders & Tesla drivers.

 

Three Tesla top engineers & two competing senior executives, all of whom had whistle-blown on Tesla, who were in perfect health one day, suddenly died mysteriously the next day.

 

Multiple employees, founders, investors, marital partners, suppliers & others have sued Tesla Motors, &/or it’s senior executives for fraud. Musk had nothing to do with creating Tesla. He ran a hostile take-over of Tesla from the founders.

 

In addition to suing him, many of his former staff & partners have described Musk as an “Arrogant Prick”.

 

If you think the above bullet-points are bad there are over a 1000 more. Find the book “Is Elon Musk A Fraud” online or visit https://stopelonfromfailingagain.com/ or thousands of other sites that expose the truth about Musk & Tesla!

California doesn’t hate Trump! Silicon Valley Billionaires hate Trump and spend all their money producing Anti-Trump Fake News!

California doesn’t hate Trump! Silicon Valley Billionaires hate Trump and spend all their money producing Anti-Trump Fake News!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By Danny L.

 

 

Palo Alto, California – I just came from a lunch on University Avenue in Palo Alto. The lunch was a large table in the back area of a well-reviewed restaurant. The participants were the top staffers of the Venture Capital companies of Silicon Valley. I got invited as the date of someone who was on the inside and nobody ever asked where I worked. I realized, soon after I arrived, that everyone was thought to be from the Stanford Silicon Valley Venture Capital offices up on Sandhill Road. I was an, unintentionally, covert fly on the wall.

 

 

Now I know how the Trump Vs. California thing happened and why it is the most misnamed war in history.

 

 

The battle should be called “The Billionaires Vs. The Billionaires” or “The Underdog Vs. The Cartel”.

 

 

A group of men in Silicon Valley and Hollywood, California hired a group of lobbyists around 2005, or so, because they had decided they needed to “play in Washington a bit more”. The lobbyists hooked these two pools of money together and came up with a scheme to manipulate media broadcasting in movies, TV and social media to run a certain political campaign in exchange for quid-pro-quo State and Federal crony payola.

 

 

The Hollywood and Silicon Valley billionaires made their kick-back deals with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. They got trillions of dollars. With Trump in office, their schemes crumble and they are going berserk about it.

 

 

They are now using their media broadcasting in movies, TV and social media to try to get the voters to vote for their Hollywood-backed candidates, in the mid-term elections, to try to win some of their payola back. They plan to accomplish this by trying to cause Trump-targeted “buyers remorse” with the voting public. They are going to use every media outlet that they control in order to make the public question Trump’s Administration and think that Trump is some sort of Lizard Person bad guy.

 

 

If you go door-to-door in California you will find that many Californians are delighted by the fact that Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do. The world would be shocked to learn that quite a huge bunch of Californians like the job that Trump is doing. It is just that Trumpsters don’t get hired by the traditionally left-leaning media companies so they have no voice in the broadcast media that is raising all of the Anti-Trump hell.

 

 

The ruckus is all operated by about 180 rich old white guys in Hollywood and Silicon Valley that are causing all of this trouble for Trump. Guys like Larry Page, Micheal Lynton, Eric Schmidt, Mark Zuckerberg, John Doerr, Steve Jurvetson, Elon Musk, Bryan Singer, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Peter Chernin, Harvey Weinstein, Robert Iger, Steve Westly, JJ Abrams. They sit around, or send their staffers around to lunches like this one, and operate actual plots and coups.

 

 

Some of their top staffers were sitting right in front of me at this lunch and they were talking “strategic disruption”. They have a set of written manuals, that the big shots have produced, that detail how to create riots in the media, town halls and public events.

 

 

Not a single person at this lunch talked about, or seemed to care about, Blacks, Syrians, Mexicans or women. It seems that these 180 guys also hire few blacks, Syrians, Mexicans or women according to the population of the lunch.

 

 

The upshot of the whole thing is that Obama gave these guys exclusive kick-back deals on their solar panels, electric cars, spy agency data harvesting and cheap labor offshore hiring stuff. A large part of the regular folks in America got screwed because of these insider deals but the tech billionaires got more billionaire’d. Now these California based weasels can’t do their kind of corruption any more and they are throwing a hissy fit designed to make it sound like all of California is in a tizzy.

 

 

Al of California is NOT in a tizzy about Trump!

 

 

There was lots of discussion about “limit splinters”. This was the most interesting part. It seems that there are still a couple laws that the politicos are afraid of. One is called “The Campaign Contribution Limits Per Source”. It means that, if you don’t use sneaky tactics, you can actually get caught for bribery. These guys figured out a work-around called “splintering”. If they want to give Hillary $5 million in exchange for a Uranium Mine contract they have staffers who make a “Waterfall Chart”, that breaks up the $5 million between enough people so that no single person, or company, will exceed the legal limit but the bribe still flows as easy as water. It is just creative accounting and semantics.

 

 

It is all pretty sneaky stuff.

 

 

They have a gal in Los Angeles who creates “Twitter Wars”. She has technology that can make a million people look like they are arguing on Twitter about a thing. In fact, those millions of people on Twitter are just Debbie and her automated server racks in The Ukraine faking a whole social uproar. It is all a dance of robotic data moving the appearance of something through the digital cloud.

 

 

These guys have enough media fire-power to churn a cigarette into a social forest fire. They are egotistical frat house boys who refuse to accept the will of the voters. One has to wonder what Steve Bannon is cooking up for them.

 

Silicon Valley’s Cultural Scam Is Brought On By Ponzi-Capitalists AKA “VC’s”

Scraping by on six figures? Tech workers feel poor in Silicon Valley’s wealth bubble

Big tech companies pay some of the country’s best salaries. But workers claim the high cost of living in the Bay Area has them feeling financially strained

“I didn’t become a software engineer to be trying to make ends meet,” said a Twitter employee in his early 40s who earns a base salary of $160,000. It is, he added, a “pretty bad” income for raising a family in the Bay Area.

The biggest cost is his $3,000 rent – which he said was “ultra cheap” for the area – for a two-bedroom house in San Francisco, where he lives with his wife and two kids. He’d like a slightly bigger property, but finds himself competing with groups of twentysomethings happy to share accommodation while paying up to $2,000 for a single room.

“Families are priced out of the market,” he said, adding that family-friendly cafes and restaurants have slowly been replaced by “hip coffee shops”.

Silicon Valley’s latest tech boom has caused rents to soar over the last five years. The city’s rents, by one measure, are now the highest in the world.

The prohibitive costs have displaced teachers, city workers, firefighters and other members of the middle class, not to mention low-income residents.

Now techies, many of whom are among the highest 1% of earners, are complaining that they, too, are being priced out.

The Twitter employee said he hit a low point in early 2014 when the company changed its payroll schedule, leaving him with a hole in his budget. “I had to borrow money to make it through the month.”

He was one of several tech workers, earning between $100,000 and $700,000 a year, who vented to the Guardian about their financial situation. Almost all of them spoke only on the condition of anonymity, or agreed only to give their first names, fearing retribution by their employers for speaking publicly about their predicament.

‘The American dream is not working out here’

Complaints from well-compensated tech workers will sound like chutzpah to many of the other 99% who are struggling to get by on a fraction of their income. But there appears to be a growing frustration among tech workers who say that they are struggling to get by.

Facebook engineers last year even raised the issue with founder Mark Zuckerberg, asking whether the company could subsidize their rents to make their living situation more affordable, according to an executive at the company who has since departed.

The cost of housing is a common complaint among Bay Area techies. Engineers can expect, according to one analysis, to pay between 40% and 50% of their salary renting an apartment near work.

One Apple employee was recently living in a Santa Cruz garage, using a compost bucket as a toilet. Another tech worker, enrolled in a coding bootcamp, described how he lived with 12 other engineers in a two-bedroom apartment rented via Airbnb. “It was $1,100 for a fucking bunk bed and five people in the same room. One guy was living in a closet, paying $1,400 for a ‘private room’.”

“We make over $1m between us, but we can’t afford a house,” said a woman in her 50s who works in digital marketing for a major telecoms corporation, while her partner works as an engineer at a digital media company. “This is part of where the American dream is not working out here.”

The prospect of losing her job and not having health insurance is a particular concern, given that she had cancer a couple of years ago. “If Obamacare goes away and I lose my job I am deeply screwed,” she said.

Michelle, a 28-year-old tech worker who earns a six-figure salary at a data science startup said her only chance of buying a home would be if she combined income with a partner. “For all the feminist movement of ‘you can do it all’, the concept of home ownership is really truly out of reach,” she said. “For me that’s disheartening.”

Another tech worker feeling excluded from the real estate market was 41-year-old Michael, who works at a networking firm in Silicon Valley and last year earned $700,000. Sick of his 22-mile commute to work, which can sometimes take up to two and half hours, he explored buying a property nearer work.

“We went to an open house in Los Gatos that would shorten my commute by eight miles. It was 1,700 sq ft and listed at $1.4m. It sold in 24 hours for $1.7m,” he said.

Although he said his salary means he can afford to live a decent life, he finds the cost of living, combined with the terrible commute, unpalatable. He’s had enough, and has accepted a 50% pay cut to relocate to San Diego.

“We will be unequivocally better off than we are now.” He said he won’t miss some of the more mundane day-to-day costs, like spending $8 on a bagel and coffee or $12 on freshly pressed juice.

Michael isn’t the only tech worker considering leaving Silicon Valley in search of a better life. A Canadian IT specialist in his late 40s, earning more than $200,000, has a similar plan. “When I came to the Bay Area the amount of money they were going to pay me seemed absurd,” he said. However, the cost of rent and childcare, which cost “more than I paid for my university education in Canada”, has been hard to swallow.

Sam, 40, lives with his wife and three kids in San Jose, earning around $120,000 a year at a multinational software company. “I get paid a very good wage, but I have three kids, childcare is ridiculously expensive so my wife mostly takes care of them,” he said.

He feels pressure being the sole breadwinner. “I’ve got no safety net,” he said. “I have credit cards, but this is not sustainable. If something bad happened I’d be out of the house in a month.”

Glaring inequality

Fred Sherburn Zimmer from San Francisco’s Housing Rights Committee agreed that housing is too expensive in the Bay Area, but points out that there are much graver consequences for people not working in tech.

“For a senior whose healthcare is down the street, moving might be a death sentence,” she said. “For an immigrant family with two kids, moving out of a sanctuary city like San Francisco means you could get deported.” She described a building in San Francisco where there are 28 people living in “studio-like closets” in a basement, including a senior and families with children.

For their part, many well-paid tech workers complaining about their own predicament say they also sympathize with the plight of people on more ordinary incomes.

“We think a lot about how people with normal jobs afford to live here,” said the Canadian IT specialist. “The answer is: they don’t. They commute from farther and farther afield.”

The digital marketer added: “During the first dotcom boom we had secretaries commuting three hours into work … It’s happening again. It was absurd then and it’s absurd now,” she said, adding that she and her husband both “know what it’s like to be poor”.

Sam, who works at the software company, isn’t optimistic about the future. “The only solution I see is a huge reset and we’ve already done that once in the last decade. It was really painful for a lot of people, including myself,” he said, referring to the dotcom crash in the early 2000s.

Some tech workers expressed a sense of guilt about their complaints when so many people are worse off, including San Francisco’s desperate homeless population.

“You are literally stepping over people to get to your job to make hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Michael. “How do you go about your daily life as if it doesn’t matter?”

He suggested venture capitalists should stop investing in “stupid applications” and funnel some money into solving real societal problems like homelessness.

“You are caught in this really uncomfortable position. You feel very guilty seeing such poverty and helplessness,” added Michelle, the 28-year-old on a six-figure wage. “But what are you supposed to do? Not make a lot of money? Not advocate for yourself and then not afford to live here?”

Sam agreed. “The whiny millennial snowflake type would say ‘you’re a terrible person making things worse for us’. The truth is, if I gave up, what would I do? Should I knit sweaters and trade them?”

Judge Orders California To Release Papers Proving Cell Phones Give You CANCER

Judge Orders California To Release Papers Discussing Risk Of Cell Phone Use

LITHIUM BATTERY FIRES, SPIES AND DEADLY RADIATION MAKE CELL PHONES THE MOST DANGEROUS CONSUMER PRODUCT IN HISTORY

 

BERKELEY (KPIX 5) — California could have to hand-over some documents it tried to keep under wraps.

On Friday, a Superior Court judge ordered the state to release papers discussing the risk of cell phone use.

The documents were written by the state’s Environmental Health Investigations branch and are believed to contain cell phone radiation warnings and recommendations for public use.

But the state refused to hand them over when requested by a director at University of California at Berkeley’s School of Public Health.

So Joel Moskowitz Phd sued the state under the California Public Records Act.

Moskowitz, the UC Berkeley School of Public Health’s director at the Center for Family and Community Health, told to KPIX 5 why he sued, saying, “I would like this document to see the light of day because it will inform the public that there is concern within the California Department of Public Health that cell phone radiation is a risk and it will provide them with some information about how to reduce those risks.”

And when asked why he thinks the state is trying to suppress this document, he said, “They claim that this would lead to chaos and confusion among the public, I suspect that they were afraid of the reaction from the telecommunications industry should they publish this document. In fact, they even argued that in their brief.”

And in a tentative ruling Friday, a judge found the documents are, in fact, public record and the public should have a right to see it.

The judge stated that there is significant public interest in DPH’s investigation into risks associated with cellular phone use and advising the public as to those risks.

Moskowitz cites new research that finds a significant relationship between cell phone use of 10 or more years and increased brain tumor risk.

The Department of Public Health would not comment on the ruling or if it intends to release the documents.

Lawyers note they could appeal.

The FCC says there is no evidence of a “definite link between wireless devices and cancer or other illnesses.”

But, Moskowitz, who believes cell phones do pose health risks and urges users to limit their contact with them, hopes the ruling will at least help call attention to the issue.

UNION HATING ELON MUSK FINDS THAT HIS CORRUPTION IS COMING BACK TO BITE HIM ON EVERY FRONT

 

Tesla Motors Was Created by Corruption and Political Bribery. Never Let Elon Musk Get Away With His Crimes! Why you should NEVER buy a Tesla, or anything that Elon Musk Makes!

 

 

 

— If you have an ounce of morality, then you will not want to help Musk & Tesla profit from the crony political corruption that created them. Musk exists because he bribes politicians & acts as an illegal campaign financing conduit.

 

— DOT/NHTSA has covered up years of reports about an acceleration surge issue that can suddenly crash your Tesla into walls and drive it off cliffs. It is either a known hacking attack or the effect of WiFi on Tesla electronics. Either can kill you.

 

— If you believe in God, or are in any way religious, Musk & Tesla are pure evil & exist because of hyper-corruption. You don’t want to contribute to their evil or be part of it in any way. You are funding evil & supporting criminal corruption by buying a Tesla or any Elon Musk owned product like Solar City, Tesla, Space X, Hyperloop, etc.!

 

— If you read about the dirty deeds and cocaine dealings with the In-Q-Tel airplanes called “Cocaine 1” & “Cocaine 2”, & the corruption behind the company called In-Q-Tel & Musk’s software programmer who ran “The Silk Road” drug & murder service then you must be concerned that many In-Q-Tel people work for Musk. Why does Musk need dirty druggies & spies on his payroll unless he is running covert drug and business spying activities?

 

Musk is anti-American and Anti-Worker Rights and has been caught flying in H1-B cheap offshore labor and exploiting immigrants for his deadly profits.

 

— If you are a Democrat then know that Elon Musk cost you the Hillary Clinton campaign because of his payola schemes. If you are a Republican, know that Elon Musk is the epitome of the worst form of DNC crony corruption you ever saw!

 

— Musk bribed California politicians to give him hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars & resources he never earned or worked for. He only got those crony payola perks handed to him because he operated as an illicit front for corrupt campaign financing for Dianne Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

 

— Multiple parties have filed “Demands For The Arrest of Elon Musk” with the FBI, DOJ, AG, FTC, SEC and other law enforcement agencies. It is not likely that Musk, or his companies will survive a full investigation.

 

Tesla and Solyndra sit on the same land in Fremont, CA. Solyndra was raided by the FBI for corruption. Tesla SHOULD be raided by the FBI for corruption. Both companies had kick-back crony payola schemes with Senator Dianne Feinstein. She owned the land, lease, HR, construction company and supplier interests and stock for both companies in one of the most massive conflict-of-interest crony financing schemes in U.S. history. Elon Musk and the Feinsteins are corruption partners.

 

People who see you in a Tesla think of you as a “Tone Deaf Douchebag”, “Tesla Tool!”, “Arrogant Prick”, “Ostentatious Obama Oaf”, “Sheep”, “Mindless Yuppie Scum”, “Misogynistic Silicon Valley Clone”, “Self-promoting Elitist Douche”, “Fake News Reading Main Stream Boob”, “Naive Idiot” or other bad things.

 

Elon Musk is one of the main financiers behind Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton, both of whom have been charged with corruption. Musk endlessly tweets lies & “…No I didn’t do those bad things” BS but nobody else supports him.

 

Tesla financial records are “cooked” in a fraudulent manner to make the stock market valuation of Tesla a falsely manipulated factor. Musk uses “pre-orders”, by his own investors, to fake sales and wrote emails to customers asking them to put small deposits down so he could book them as fully paid sales in one of a large number of stock and loan valuation frauds. Musk and his investors practice stock market skims, pump-and-dumps and Flash Boy manipulations.

 

Lithium ion batteries are blowing up, starting fires &, generally, destroying people’s homes, cars, electronics & physical health. Boeing was ordered to stop flying the 787 Dreamliner because it’s Lithium ion batteries are catching fire spontaneously. A group of silicon valley venture capitalists forced/leveraged the government to buy & pay for these specific batteries, that they have stock in, in order to benefit their profit margins. Other batteries don’t have these problems. They knew about the dangers from day one, but put greed ahead of safety. There are thousands & thousands of reports of spontaneous lithium ion fires but the VC’s who back lithium ion pay to keep this information hushed up. Millions of these batteries have been recalled for fire risk. The VC’s tried to push as many as they could before they got caught. Now they are caught. These VC’s & the Senators they bribed own stock in lithium mining companies too. HERE IS THE PROOF:

 

HTTP://LITHIUMBATTERYCOVERUP.COM

 

Tesla Motors has filed a patent which states the following , THESE ARE TESLA MOTORS WORDS warning about a crisis, the level of which they never disclosed to the consumer: “Thermal runaway is of major concern since a single incident can lead to significant property damage &, in some circumstances, bodily harm or loss of life. When a battery undergoes thermal runaway, it typically emits a large quantity of smoke, jets of flaming liquid electrolyte, & sufficient heat to lead to the combustion & destruction of materials in close proximity to the cell. If the cell undergoing thermal runaway is surrounded by one or more additional cells as is typical in a battery pack, then a single thermal runaway event can quickly lead to the thermal runaway of multiple cells which, in turn, can lead to much more extensive collateral damage. Regardless of whether a single cell or multiple cells are undergoing this phenomenon, if the initial fire is not extinguished immediately, subsequent fires may be caused that dramatically expand the degree of property damage. For example, the thermal runaway of a battery within an unattended laptop will likely result in not only the destruction of the laptop, but also at least partial destruction of its surroundings, e.g., home, office, car, laboratory, etc. If the laptop is on-board an aircraft, for example within the cargo hold or a luggage compartment, the ensuing smoke & fire may lead to an emergency landing or, under more dire conditions, a crash landing. Similarly, the thermal runaway of one or more batteries within the battery pack of a hybrid or electric vehicle may destroy not only the car, but may lead to a car wreck if the car is being driven or the destruction of its surroundings if the car is parked”. See whoiselonmusk.com for more…

 

Tesla’s own staff, & every fire department, have now admitted that once a lithium ion fire gets started in a Tesla, that it is impossibleto extinguish burning lithium ion material. This is Telsa’s own words in THEIR patent filing, (You can look it up online) saying that the risk is monumental. Tesla has 6800 lithium ion batteries, any one of which can “go thermal”, start a chain reaction and blow up all of the rest of the 6800+ deadly batteries! Tesla drivers have been burned alive in thermal globs of flaming lithium ion, plastics & metal. Bystanders have heard their horrific screams of unutterable pain & terror as they were burned alive! Tesla fires can’t be extinguished & the bodies are burned into “unrecognizable lumps of charred flesh”, according to fireman.

 

Lithium Ion batteries “go thermal” in peoples pockets, in your notebook, especially in a Tesla & Fisker car. There are tens of thousands of articles documenting this & there is a cover-up by the VC’s that fund these things to keep this fact out-of-sight. Making Lithium Ion batteries poisons the workers who make them. It is a dangerous product that is covered-up by the Obama Administration. Panasonic knows that these batteries are deadly.

 

Tesla only exists to exploit Elon Musk’s briberies. The lithium ion batteries blow up when they get: wet, hot, bumped, over-charged, struck by energy fields, exposed to air or squashed. Lithium ion batteries poison the Earth & that they poison & kill the workers that make them. Lithium ion batteries come from war profiteering in Afghan & Bolivian corruption.

 

Panasonic is Elon Musk’s partner. Panasonic is one of the most corrupt companies in the world. Panasonic has been charged, on multiple continents with: Product dumping, bribery, collusion, price fixing, anti-trust law violations, racketeering, worker abuse, toxic poisoning of workers, & other crimes. It is no wonder that Elon Musk & Panasonic are partners. Tata Motors executive Karl Slym was killed for exposing this fact.

 

Your tax dollars were stolen in order to make Tesla Motors, as part of a political financing kick-back scam. In other words, part of your paycheck was taken away from you in order to buy hookers, rent-boys & private jets for Musk & company.

 

Tesla’s are forged in criminal corruption, so anybody who drives a Tesla must be either ignorant, a weasel or one of the corrupt. The whole world now knows all of the facts in this list so you can never plead ignorance to these crimes.

 

Telsa’s have a huge amount of highly documented defects. The defects are so extensive that Tesla made buyers sign confidentiality agreements to try to hide how messed up their cars are.

 

Tesla’s have killed more people than the main-stream news has reported. The full Tesla death-list is covered up.

 

Musk lied about why he wanted to make electric cars, when, in fact, he actually poisons the environment because Tesla investors wanted to exploit toxic minerals & materials which can’t be recycled in a clean manner

 

No other electric car has been so mundane, & yet had so many problems with it, since the electric car was first sold in the 1800’s. There is nothing “novel” or “amazing” about the Tesla aside from dime store parlor tricks for PR hype.

 

More drunks have crashed Tesla’s, than any other per capita car in the world, per volume of cars made

 

Elon Musk’s co-founders, investors, partners, wives, investors, suppliers & employees have sued him for being a fraud &, essentially, called him an “asshole” in court records.

 

Elon Musk lied on this Department of Energy funding application and the Obama Administration refuses to allow any federal employees or witnesses to testify to these facts in public due to the devastating potential results of these facts.

 

More owners of Tesla’s have been found to cheat on their taxes, & be involved in abuse-based divorces, than almost any other car brand owner. Tesla owners are bad people who rationalize their poor life choices.

 

Elon Musk will lie, cheat & steal in order to self-aggrandize & glorify his egotistical mania. Musk has been documented engaging in over 100 lies which were later proven to be false. He has spent tens of millions of dollars to buy fake news about himself on Twitter, Facebook & Google because he is such a mentally disturbed ego-maniac.

 

None of Elon Musk’s companies would exist if not for taxpayer funded handouts given to him by corrupt politicians in exchange for illegal campaign finance deals with him & his investors.

 

Google, & Tesla, who are financial & political partners, have both been caught spying on consumers & manipulating Internet data in order to cover-up their complicity in huge political corruption & kick-back deals

 

Musk took U.S. taxpayer dollars from the government & then hired cheap off-shore labor & fired U.S. Union workers & domestic workers. He lied to & screwed the NUMMI workers that were working at the Fremont plant.

 

Musk has put over 18 surveillance devices in the Tesla. Anybody can hack those devices & monitor you. WORSE YET, foreign agents have hacked the Tesla & taken over the controls & driven Tesla’s into bystanders & over cliffs.

 

When Erick Strickland was head of the NHTSA he was confronted about DOT safety cover-ups of the Tesla to protect Obama. He quit 48 hours later. The DOT safety cover-ups to protect the Obama campaign finance payola scheme continue to this day. Obama’s Gibbs, Emanual, Plouffe, Axelrod and Carney quit within a week of being threatened with exposure.

 

Tesla’s have had a large number of recalls but Elon Musk refuses to call them “recalls”. Tesla’s have had multiple recalls for SEVERE safety dangers. DOT has been told this, in writing, for years, but wont take action in order to protect Obama.

 

Elon Musk is a bullshit artist who has no original ideas & wears black-turtle neck shirts (like Elizabeth Homes) to try to create a “cult” around himself & convince the world that he is a “Jesus-like” figure when, in fact, he is a clinical sociopath.

 

Tesla is a severe public safety hazard that has been systematically covered up by corrupt politicians.

 

Tesla Motors batteries were promoted by those who wished to exploit the Afghanistan War for personal profit by controlling the Afghan lithium mining fields. Kleiner Perkins and Draper Fisher hyped the “…trillions of $ of lithium in Afganistan.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up on their own.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up when they get wet.

 

Tesla Motors batteries fires cannot be put out by any common fire-fighting resources.

 

Tesla Motors batteries set themselves on fire.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit cancer-causing vapors when they burn.

 

Tesla Motors Vehicles toxicity poison bystanders, nearby vehicular passengers, airline passengers in planes carrying said batteries in their holds, & environments where such incidents occur.

 

Tesla Motors batteries blow up when bumped by the same level of car incident that would, otherwise, only dent a normal car bumper.

 

In an accident, when a Tesla rolls over, molten metal & plastic can drip on & burn the occupants alive.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit brain damaging chemicals when they burn.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals, burning, or not, that can damage an unborn fetus.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause lung damage.

 

Per MSDS documents, Tesla Motors batteries emit chemicals that can cause liver damage.

 

Per published lawsuits & news reports, the factories that make Tesla Motors batteries have been charged with the deaths, & potentially fatal illness, of over 1000 workers & the poisoning of nearby towns.

 

Tesla Motors batteries become even more dangerous over time, particularly when tasked by electric transportation systems like Hover-boards & Tesla’s. The chemistry in a lithium ion battery changes to become more unstable over time.

 

Tesla Motors batteries were never designed to be used in automobiles. Tesla used non-automotive batteries in one of the most dangerous configurations possible.

 

Tesla Motors occupants experience higher EMF radiation exposure than gasoline vehicle occupants.

 

Elon Musk’s Space X vehicles & Tesla Motors vehicles have both had a higher-than-average number of explosions. This has caused outside experts to doubt Musk’s ability to place safety considerations over his need for hyped-up PR.

 

Leaked Sandia National Labs & FAA research videos dramatically demonstrate the unstoppable, horrific, “re-percussive accelerating domino-effect” explosive fire effect of the Tesla Motors batteries.

 

Tesla’s own “Superchargers” & home 3-prong chargers have set Tesla’s, homes & businesses on fire.

 

Consumer rights groups contacted Erick Strickland, the head of the NHTSA, & charged him with a cover-up. He quit days later. The NHTSA then issued a safety investigation request to Tesla Motors, which would have more publicly exposed these dangers, but the safety investigation was never under-taken due to White House requests & lobbyist bribes, from Tesla, which got the investigation shut down.

 

NEPA regulations for the Tesla NUMMI factory in California & the Nevada Tesla “Gigafactory” have been violated relative to environmental safety standards.

 

Tesla Motors vehicles are not “Factory Built” “like Ford” builds cars, as Tesla professes. They are hand built in small volumes & subjected to numerous defects. Blogs have documented hundreds of defects, as listed by Tesla owners. Tesla has lost at least one LEMON CAR LAWSUIT for defective manufacturing.

 

Tesla’s “showrooms” are often “pop-up” retail storefronts that are in tight-proximity retail centers, putting it’s neighbors at risk of total loss from fire damage.

 

Tesla Motors vehicles have been hacked & taken over. Their doors, steering, listening devices & navigation have been taken over by outside parties. Multiple Tesla have suddenly swerved off the road, over cliffs & into other vehicles, killing bystanders & Tesla drivers.

 

Three Tesla top engineers & two competing senior executives, all of whom had whistle-blown on Tesla, who were in perfect health one day, suddenly died mysteriously the next day.

 

Multiple employees, founders, investors, marital partners, suppliers & others have sued Tesla Motors, &/or it’s senior executives for fraud. Musk had nothing to do with creating Tesla. He ran a hostile take-over of Tesla from the founders.

 

In addition to suing him, many of his former staff & partners have described Musk as an “Arrogant Prick”.

Boycotts do work. Starbucks crashes! Google and Facebook Getting Desperate

Starbucks’ ‘Brand Perception’ Takes A Massive Hit After Announcing Plans To Hire 10,000 Refugees

 

 

Tyler Durden's picture
 

 

About a month ago, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz decided to ‘take a stand’ in defiance of Trump’s immigration executive order and penned a message to the world vowing, among other things, to hire 10,000 refugees over the next 5 years and “build bridges, not walls, with Mexico”.  Here are some excerpts from the politically charged message drafted by Schultz with “deep concern and a heavy heart”:

 
 

I write to you today with deep concern, a heavy heart and a resolute promise. Let me begin with the news that is immediately in front of us: we have all been witness to the confusion, surprise and opposition to the Executive Order that President Trump issued on Friday, effectively banning people from several predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States, including refugees fleeing wars. I can assure you that our Partner Resources team has been in direct contact with the partners who are impacted by this immigration ban, and we are doing everything possible to support and help them to navigate through this confusing period.

 

Hiring Refugees: We have a long history of hiring young people looking for opportunities and a pathway to a new life around the world. This is why we are doubling down on this commitment by working with our equity market employees as well as joint venture and licensed market partners in a concerted effort to welcome and seek opportunities for those fleeing war, violence, persecution and discrimination.  There are more than 65 million citizens of the world recognized as refugees by the United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business.

 

Building Bridges, Not Walls, With Mexico: We have been open for business in Mexico since 2002, and have since opened almost 600 stores in 60 cities across the country, which together employ over 7,000 Mexican partners who proudly wear the green apron. Coffee is what unites our common heritage, and as I told Alberto Torrado, the leader of our partnership with Alsea in Mexico, we stand ready to help and support our Mexican customers, partners and their families as they navigate what impact proposed trade sanctions, immigration restrictions and taxes might have on their business and their trust of Americans.

Unfortunately, Schultz quickly found out the hard way that while most adult-aged Americans can agree that they like coffee, roughly 50% disagree with his leftist political opinions.  Which, according to Yahoo Finance, has sent the company’s “brand perception” into a downward spiral since January 29th.

 
 

The coffee giant’s consumer perception levels have fallen by two-thirds since late January, according to YouGov BrandIndex.

 

The perception tracker measures if respondents have “heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative.” In Starbucks’ case, perception is still overall positive, but significantly lower than it was prior to CEO Howard Schultz published a public letter outlining the company’s plans to give refugees jobs.

 

YouGov says that there’s reason to believe backlash will impact the chain’s bottom line. Two days before Starbucks’ announcement, 30% of consumers said they’d consider buying from Starbucks the next time they were craving coffee, the highest proportion in nearly a year. Now, the percentage is down to 24%, according to YouGov.

SBUX

 

Of course, this isn’t the only time Starbucks has alienated customers by publicly pursuing a controversial political agenda.  As we noted back in March 2015, the Company was forced to abandon its “Race Together” campaign that was intended “to be a catalyst for a larger conversation on race” relations in the United States but really just served to piss off a bunch of anxious people eager to grab their cup of coffee and be on their way.

SBUX

 

Apparently nothing will ever convince some of America’s leftist billionaires that, no matter how rich they become, they will never be able to force their political opinions on Americans who see through their propaganda…just ask all the rich people that just lost a fortune trying to elect Hillary.

 

An Unremarkable Man

An Unremarkable Man

 

 

 

By Wendy Brown – Submission for ProPublica

 

 

 

 

 

The government gave him a mission to “save America”! For his efforts he got killed; over and over and over again. Essentially, they sent him into a den of starving hyenas and gave him a suit made of raw meat. He never had a chance.

 

 

Now, though, circumstances have changed and the protagonist of this tale may be positioned for an epic David V. Goliath turn-around.

 

 

We will call him David to protect his identity. David had spent his life building and managing things for national community groups. He had won many awards, seminal patents, commendations from The White House, Congress, Mayors, The State Assembly and numerous accolades from CEO’s around the nation. He has hundreds of reference letters for his extraordinary community service work. He was often photographed and videoed with some famous Presidential big shots and dated best friends of White House leaders. We was a true bi-partisan public policy person and got along great with all political parties.

 

 

He had built Sony’s internet video-on-demand technology and was featured in Sony’s federal patent filings as the sole source of Sony’s inspiration. He produced the Better Homes and Gardens and San Francisco homes-of-the-future public demonstration homes. He built and operated the first Google and YouTube before Google or YouTube even existed. His accomplishments are vast. He was the person you could always call on when there was a “Mission Impossible” type problem that needed solving.

 

 

One of those calls, though, ended up being lethal.

 

 

As the Iraq War was evolving, CIA and DIA agents, who David had built gadgets for, saw that the relations between the USA and the Middle East were eroding at a geometrically increasing pace. In the Congressional Iraq War Bill, The U.S. Congress awarded David a commendation for his inventions and a grant of millions of dollars for David’s Team to build “America’s energy back-up plan”.

 

 

David built the new domestic energy technology and it worked, won awards and patents and provided the cleanest, 100%-domestic-sourced energy solution in the world for defense and retail markets.

 

 

There was one problem with it. The new President of the United States had traded campaign financing for a monopoly on the competing energy technology. David got to find out about this covert deal the hard way.

 

 

Silicon Valley was handed the monopoly on lithium ion batteries exploited via the vast Afghan War lithium fields and the CIA-leveraged Bolivian lithium mines. The technology that David was working on made the trillion dollar lithium batteries obsolete. Nobody ever told David and his Team about the Silicon Valley Cartel’s insider deal until it was too late.

 

 

The Silicon Valley Cartel headed by John Doerr, Eric Schmidt, Vinod Khosla, Larry Page, Steve Westly, Elon Musk and their minions, had made the deal with political campaign bosses David Plouffe, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanual, Bill Daley, Valarie Jarrett and John Podesta. In the rush to grab U.S. Treasury cash, the bad guys left out a key element: due diligence. The lithium ion concept had some horrific downsides.

 

 

It turns out, according to hundreds of new safety reports, that lithium ion batteries have a few problems: “…Lithium ion batteries poison & kill the workers that make them! Lithium ion batteries have burned numerous people alive in their cars! Lithium ion batteries poison and permanently disable factory workers who make them and nearby villages by the factories! Lithium ion batteries fires cannot be extinguished by fireman! Lithium ion batteries materials rely on corrupt mining scams in war torn Afghanistan and corrupt Boliva! Lithium ion batteries explode if they get bumped! Lithium ion batteries explode if they get wet! That’s right, putting water on a lithium ion battery fire only makes it WORSE! Lithium ion batteries explode when they pass through certain energy fields and LENR’s!Lithium ion batteries explode one after the other and set adjacent batteries off. Lithium ion batteries explode EVEN MORE OVER TIME because their chemistry becomes more and more unstable! Lithium ion batteries explode TENS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES PER YEAR and the incidents are hushed up by politicians who own stock in these batteries! Lithium ion batteries are the #1 cause of major airlines passengers suddenly “smelling smoke”! Lithium ion batteries are the singles largest cause of sudden fires in FEDEX and UPS trucks! Lithium ion batteries have set thousands of children and senior citizens on fire! Lithium ion batteries have crashed, or almost crashed, a large number of airplanes! Tesla’s Motors and Steve Chu were fully aware of these facts 18 years ago but they selected speedy profits over public safety! The toxic fumes from a lithium ion battery that has a thermal venting leak will give you CANCER according to Panasonic and 42 government documents! The toxic fumes from a lithium ion battery that has a thermal venting leak will ALSO give you BRAIN DAMAGE, LUNG DAMAGE, LIVER DAMAGE and MUTATE YOUR UNBORN CHILD according to Panasonic and 42 government documents! Obama Administration White House staff and Dept. of Energy Staff and California Senators and their Silicon Valley campaign financiers own the profits in these batteries and they are who covered these facts up!…”

 

 

So there’s that.

 

 

Dave then had a “hit-job” put on him because the technologies he was working on obsoleted the Silicon Valley crony energy payola kick-back scheme that the Silicon Valley Cartel was up to. You probably first heard about that when you read about the FBI Raid on a company called Solyndra in Fremont, California. Solyndra is Tesla Motors neighbor and finance associate. The payola scheme at Solyndra cost the U.S. taxpayers over $535 million dollars in losses. That was just the beginning.

 

 

Because Dave was asked to help federal investigators with their law enforcement investigation of the Silicon Valley corruption, the bad guys doubled down on the hit job.

 

 

David found himself poisoned, hacked, blacklisted, targeted, character assassinated, attacked and subjected to a “kill order” that experts believe cost over $30M to execute. Imagine having attack materials about you sent to 7.5 billion people across the internet, your employers, recruiter databases, clients, girlfriends, fiancée and neighbors, year after year.

 

 

In the recent leaks and political upheavals; emails, documents, financial records, and more, have proven David’s concerns to have been true. The world has seen the scope of “hit-jobbing” in the news articles about Julian Assange, Hulk Hogan, Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, Monica Lewinsky and tens of thousands of others who endured hit-job take down attacks organized by special interest groups. Hit-jobs are real and they happen every day. In the worse case scenario, people are actually murdered. Over 30 people who crossed paths with this Silicon Valley Cartel turned up suspiciously dead including Gary D. Conley, David Bird, Rajeev Motwani, Ravi Kumar, Karl Slym and many more.

 

 

David went from millions of dollars in assets, and a great job, to zero, in the blink of an eye. In the Bay Area, the average minimum salary for a person with David’s experience, skills and credentials is $10K per month. The average tech executive has a salary of at least $160K per year. The bad guys set out to drain David down to zero in order to terminate any ability for him to fight back.

 

 

They under-estimated his resolve and his Washington alliances.

 

 

The hit-job operators were getting an average salary of $330K per person/per year from Google and Gawker Media, as recent court records disclose. The bosses of those hit job operations received tens of millions of dollars in bonuses, stock and other assets and they had hundreds of billions of dollars of servers designed to manipulate information. It must be hard for David and his associates to watch the opposition buy mansions, jets and sports cars every month at David’s expense.

 

 

David was hopelessly out-gunned.

 

 

Now David is seeking to fight back. Newer FBI, CIA, News organization and White House advisors have identified each and every person, and group, that attacked David and his Team. David, Peter Thiel and a host of others who were attacked, have joined forces to bankrupt, sue and legally terminate every single one of these heinous entities. They are working with 100% legal means, reporting daily to the new FBI and other agencies and have the aligned support of over 200 million voters who also believe that organized corruption and covert political hit-jobs against citizens must become a thing of the past.

 

 

 

 

MONEY, GUNS AND LAWYERS

 

 

Some of those attacked were highly paid surgeons, broadcasters and politicians who could afford a bit of a battle. David was just an unremarkable tech guy. David has exhausted his life savings fighting for years against the attackers. One community law group volunteered to sue one of the attackers but the U.S. Government ruled that David could get no cash from that particular case. Ironically, that particular case was a lawsuit against The U.S. Government itself. In a bizarre circumstance, one part of the U.S. Government helped David sue another part of the U.S. Government in a first-ever type of public anti-corruption lawsuit. So far the bad guy part of the feds has said “no cash for you” but that self-interested stance may not hold out for long.

 

 

David and his team did get a historical ruling by the federal court saying that his Team was the first in history, that the U.S. Government would admit to in federal court records, that had a hit-job run on them using taxpayer resources as the reprisal portion of a corruption scam.

 

 

David and his Team are moving forward with the ongoing lawsuit against the federal agency that was they key part of the corruption scheme because, as David says: “it is the right thing to do and we owe the rest of the people of America the opportunity to end this kind of corruption…”. So far, that case has resulted in the termination of the U.S. Secretary of Energy, an Attorney General and 40 federal employees on corruption charges. It has set national legal precedents and, as a by-the-way, caused the Crowd-Funding Act to get passed so that technologists like David could bypass the Silicon Valley Venture Capital Cartel.

 

 

David and his Team are looking to the direct attackers to get their cash back in other lawsuits they plan to file.

 

 

What are David’s and his Team’s losses to date? Over three billion dollars! The damages are huge because the attackers took that money from David’s companies and put it in their bank accounts and made hundreds of billions of dollars. Three billion dollars is only a week of profits for the opposition. It is a drop in the bucket to them.

 

 

Still, that is quite a price to pay for acting in service to your nation! David would seem to have some IOU’s due for his decades of hard work on the technologies.

 

 

Some of the names behind the Silicon Cartel are listed above but David’s task is even more potent than just taking on just those billionaires. The companies he must sue include: Sony Pictures, Univision, Google, Facebook, Kleiner Perkins, Khosla Ventures and Tesla Motors.

 

 

Daunting? You might say so…BUT…

 

 

In a strange twist of fate, there is some major potential upside for the underdogs: Every single other person who has sued these people for the same thing recently has won! Washington DC, legal precedents, leaked document exposure, news coverage and public attitude has undergone a seismic shift in 2017; all of which points David to a WIN in every case if he can get a good lawyer.

 

 

This cartel has done everything you can imagine to keep David from getting in front of a jury. They all know that with the evidence and facts, now available, a decent legal Team can knock each of those famous Defendants for a loop, one after the other.

 

 

David and his friends are not giving up. Says David: “There are over 300,000 lawyers in the world and my friends, helpers and I will knock on every one of their doors until we find ones with the balls to go head to head with these corporate bullies. Even if we have to hire law firms from overseas..”

 

 

David needs law-firms who will work on what is called a contingency or deferral fee basis. This structure means that they wait to get their fees until after the jury awards damages. The damages are in very high numbers because the bad guys each made over $10B each at the expense of David, his Team and their international energy, vehicle and media companies.

 

 

The time bar, also known as the “statute of limitations” never runs out on David’s cases because the Defendants digital attacks and infringements occur daily. This resets the clock every single day for David. The new leaks and federal disclosures keep appearing weekly.

 

 

David and his folks can now also accept support from equity investments. Peter Thiel famously invested in Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit against Gawker/Univision and Thiel got spectacular upside out of that. David is seeking the same kind of investment for his cases. Either a great high-net-worth investor or a contingency law firm can be the solution for David. It could even be a combination of both.

 

 

David is one decent law firm away from getting his life back. The bad guys have sent fake lawyers to offer to “help” David’s Team but they were discovered to have actually been covertly working for Sony or Google as “moles”. David now has a deeper vetting process for legal resources.

 

 

David needs a few good law firms with skills, integrity and moxie. Know any up for the task?

 

 

David will now seek to sue the bad guys for patent infringement, RICO law violations, interference, cyber-stalking, fraud, bodily harm and anti-trust law violations. These are big cases with big upside.

 

 

The bad guys made on fatal mistake. When they spent millions attacking David they left too many fingerprints on their dirty tricks evidence.

 

 

I checked all of this out. The U.S. Patent Office has vast files proving David’s claims and his issued record breaking seminal patents and inventions to him. The dates and time-stamps on volumes of material show that David was first and the Silicon Cartel copied him after coming in to spy on his technology. Major network TV news segments with David on-camera, confirm all of the facts. I read multiple federal court records on permanent public file and those documents confirm everything about David’s story. I saw the original commendation letters from Presidents of the United States and the most respected people in America and I called some of their offices and confirmed the validity of those stories. The only negative media I found on David was on the servers of Gawker Media, Univision and the media players hired to attack him. I spoke with Congressional investigators at all of the Congressional ethics offices and read their files and they confirm that David’s facts are right on the money. I could not find records showing any of David’s case points to be false. I did find Senator’s, renown journalists, Federal staffers, investigators and other well known parties who confirm David’s facts. When I put the names and keywords of this article in the top six non-Google search engines in the world I find millions of news stories that validate everything David has told me. I see his Team’s name in Sony’s patent filings and the other records referred to so I am going to believe his side of things.

How We Are Going To Put Corrupt Elon Musk Out of Business By Shutting Off His “Blood Cobalt”

How We Are Going To Put Corrupt Elon Musk Out of Business By Shutting Off His “Blood Cobalt”

 

 

 

 

AFRICAN “BLOOD COBALT” FROM THE CONGO WILL BE ELON MUSK’S UNDOING!

 

ARE THE KOCH BROTHERS AND GOP BILLIONAIRES HAVING THEIR FUNDS BUY IT ALL UP!?

 

LIKE “BLOOD DIAMONDS” MANY WORKERS DIE GETTING LITHIUM ION BATTERY MATERIALS AND TURNING THEM INTO BATTERIES.

 

Suppliers to Tesla and different electrical carmakers are scrambling to save shipments of the important thing battery materials cobalt after a gaggle of hedge funds amassed a big stockpile of the scarce steel.

 

In a daring wager on larger costs, half a dozen funds, together with Swiss-based Pala Investments and China’s Shanghai Chaos, have bought and saved an estimated 6,000 tonnes of cobalt, value as a lot as $280m, based on the traders, merchants and analysts.

 

The stockpile is equal to 17 per cent of final 12 months’s international manufacturing of the steel.

 

Increasing use of batteries containing chemical types of the steel by Chinese electrical carmakers, alongside formidable plans by the likes of Elon Musk’s Tesla, have created a fertile backdrop for speculators hoping to revenue from swelling urge for food for cobalt, which boosts the power of lithium-ion batteries.

 

They are betting that demand for electrical autos will exceed market expectations and push the up the value of cobalt as battery makers akin to Panasonic, which makes battery cells for Tesla, rush to lock-up provides of the fabric.

 

Global demand is already anticipated to outstrip provide this 12 months by 900 tonnes, based on commodity consultancy CRU. It estimates demand for cobalt will develop 20 per cent a 12 months for the subsequent 5 years, thanks to purchasing from the hybrid and electrical automobile trade whose manufacturing grew by 41 per cent final 12 months.

 

The value of cobalt, which is mined nearly solely within the Democratic Republic of Congo, has jumped greater than 50 per cent since November to $21 a pound and will rise additional. Prices rose to peak at about $50 a pound in 2007, earlier than dropping to a low of $10 in 2015.

 

There’s an entire vacuum on the market (when it comes to provide)

 

“There’s going to be bigger demand for cobalt,” Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, which controls nearly a 3rd of the cobalt market, mentioned on Thursday. Each greenback rise within the value of cobalt generates about $55m in earnings for the corporate.

 

Tesla started manufacturing at its battery “gigafactory” in Nevada a month in the past, sharpening its want for the steel, based on merchants. Tesla didn’t reply to an electronic mail in search of remark. Pala Investments additionally declined to remark.

 

“End consumers worried about future price increases have been looking to fill their [stocks] and at the same time you’ve had some speculative buying from the hedge funds,” mentioned Edward Spencer, an analyst at CRU.

 

With few pure cobalt firms listed exterior China, hedge funds have been compelled to purchase bodily steel to specific their bullish view on the steel. Although the London Metal Exchange has a cobalt contract, it’s not closely traded.

 

“They quite rapidly decided that buying physical cobalt was the only way to get proper exposure to the cobalt price,” one dealer mentioned.

 

Still, merchants warned the funds may have difficulties promoting the steel for a revenue, as a result of the cobalt market is comparatively small and launch of recent provide may rapidly ship costs decrease.

 

About half of the annual consumption of cobalt comes from the electrical automobile trade. While carmakers have been attempting to cut back the quantity used, that has been tough due to its skill to enhance battery stability and capability.

 

Hedge funds’ stockpile equal to final 12 months’s international manufacturing of the steel

 

China can also be serving to to generate the bullish predictions for demand. While the nation’s electrical automobile trade has lately relied on batteries with out cobalt, carmakers have began to change. Goldman Sachs analysts estimate China’s use of cobalt in electrical batteries will nearly double by 2025.

 

A squeeze on demand has been exacerbated by the discount from Zambia, Russia and Australia lately, based on analysts at Macquarie. Cobalt is mined alongside metals nickel and copper, which have fallen in value because the monetary disaster.

 

Cobalt’s value surge has led some battery makers to purchase extra cobalt within the spot market, additional benefiting the funds which have stockpiled the steel.

 

“There’s a complete vacuum out there” when it comes to providing it, mentioned Tony Southgate, a cobalt dealer at Engelhart Commodities in London.

 

 

 

A massive Cloudflare bug means Uber, Fitbit and OKCupid passwords have been leaking for months

A massive Cloudflare bug means Uber, Fitbit and OKCupid passwords have been leaking for months

CloudFlare CloudFlare CEO Matthew Prince. Reuters

  • A software bug means private messages, password, and account details from some of the world’s biggest sites have been exposed.
  • Google security researchers found the bug in Cloudflare’s software.
  • Developers and security experts say Cloudflare is underplaying the problem.

A major software bug means that passwords from the world’s biggest sites, including Fitbit, OKCupid, and Uber have been leaking for months.

Security researchers revealed the flaw in internet infrastructure provider Cloudflare’s software on Thursday night.

Cloudflare said on Friday there was no sign yet the leak had been exploited by hackers — but security experts have said there is no way the company could know this.

Cloudflare hosts 6 million websites, spreading them across the internet to put them closer to customers while at the same time reducing their exposure to the so-called Distributed Denial of Service attacks that might knock them offline.

The data leak was attributable to a bug in the firm’s software that had been sending chunks of unrelated data to users’ browsers when they visited a webpage hosted by Cloudflare, according to a British researcher working on Google’s Project Zero security team, Tavis Ormandy.

Ormandy wrote:

“I’ve informed Cloudflare what I’m working on. I’m finding private messages from major dating sites, full messages from a well-known chat service, online password manager data, frames from adult video sites, hotel bookings. We’re talking full https requests, client IP addresses, full responses, cookies, passwords, keys, data, everything.”

He subsequently confirmed on Twitter that he was referred to OKCupid, among other services.

 

Data leaked between September 2016 and February 2017, according to Cloudflare’s post on the issue.

Cloudflare CTO John Graham-Cumming said the problem had been fixed quickly and most of the exposed data removed from the caches of search engines like Google.

“We’ve seen absolutely no evidence that this has been exploited,” he told Reuters by phone. “It’s very unlikely that someone has got this information.”

One affected developer told Business Insider there is no way Graham-Cunning could know this. Ormandy also said Cloudflare had “severely downplayed” the risk to customers.

The leakage may have been active from September 22, but the period most affected was from February 13 until it was discovered on February 18. At its height earlier this month, Graham-Cumming said, about 120,000 webpages were leaking information every day.

Ormandy also wrote on Twitter that data from ridesharing service Uber and cloud password company 1Password had been leaking.

An Uber spokeswoman told Business Insider: “No Uber passwords were exposed and the handful of session tokens affected have since been changed”.

AgileBits,the maker of 1Password, denied in a blog post on Thursday that any personal data had been compromised.

A Fitbit spokesman told Business Insider:

“As the leader in the connected health and fitness category, Fitbit is committed to protecting the privacy of our users’ data and keeping data safe. We are currently investigating the issue reported with Cloudflare’s service to understand how it impacts our users. We encourage anyone who believes they have an issue to notify our team at security@fitbit.com. Concerned users can change their account password, followed by logging out and in to the mobile application with the new password. We recommend that users avoid reusing passwords associated with their email address or any other accounts, as this practice leaves them more vulnerable to malicious behavior.”

And an OKCupid spokeswoman said:

“Cloudflare alerted us last night of their bug and we’ve been looking into its impact on OkCupid members. Our initial investigation has revealed minimal, if any, exposure. If we determine that any of our users has been impacted we will promptly notify them and take action to protect them.”

Other sites using Cloudflare include Transferwise, Medium, 4chan, and Transport for London, but not all sites have necessarily been affected.

Graham-Cumming said it was difficult to say which of Cloudflare’s 6 million websites had been affected. He said that Google and Cloudflare had been working together to remove any sensitive data from the store of webpages that search engines like Google collect when they index the web.

He said that process was not yet complete, which is why some researchers were still finding data if they knew where to look.

Some security researchers have said the problem is more serious than Cloudflare has described.

Jonathan Sublett of internet security company Shield Maiden said in a blog post that anyone who accessed sites that used Cloudflare “should consider their data public and work towards securing their accounts”.

Graham-Cumming said it was difficult to say which of their customers were affected. “There will be a debate about how serious this is,” he said. “We do not know of anybody who has had a security problem as a result of this.”

Cloudflare Data Leak: How to Secure Your Site

 

This entry was posted in General Security, WordPress Security on February 23, 2017 by Mark Maunder   23 Replies

 

Cloudflare has experienced a data leak over a 5 month period that mixed sensitive data between websites and visitors. A visitor to one website using Cloudflare may have seen data from another website using Cloudflare that was being sent to a completely different site visitor.

 

Some of the leaked data has been indexed by search engines who have been working over the past few days to try and remove the data from their caches.

 

In this post I am going to explain in simple terms, what occurred and what you need to do about it.

 

If you are a WordPress user and simply want to know how to secure your site, you can skip to the What Should I Do section below. I have included some information for non-WordPress site owners in that section too.

 

What Happened in the Cloudflare Data Leak?

 

Cloudflare provides a firewall and content distribution service. Their servers are between your website visitors and your own web server.

 

Under normal circumstances, cloudflare returns the data each site visitor requested to that visitor. This may be public or sometimes private information and it is usually done over a secure channel. Each website visitor only sees the data they requested.

 

From September 22nd, 2016 until February 18th 2017 (last Saturday), Cloudflares servers in some cases mixed data that belonged to one visitor to a website, with data belonging to another visitor that was visiting a completely different website.

 

The worst data leakage occurred between the dates of February 13th and February 18th when one in every 3.3 million requests to Cloudflare’s servers was leaked.

 

During the period when the leak occurred, visitors to certain websites would see what appeared to be garbage data mixed into the web page they were viewing. That garbage data was data from a memory leak. The data was in some cases sensitive and included security tokens and other sensitive information.

 

According to Tavis Ormandy, the researcher who discovered this data leak:

 

The examples we’re finding are so bad, I cancelled some weekend plans to go into the office on Sunday to help build some tools to cleanup. I’ve informed cloudflare what I’m working on. I’m finding private messages from major dating sites, full messages from a well-known chat service, online password manager data, frames from adult video sites, hotel bookings. We’re talking full https requests, client IP addresses, full responses, cookies, passwords, keys, data, everything.”

 

Data leakage occurred when a site visitor or search engine visited one of 3438 domains hosted behind Cloudflare’s servers, according to Cloudflare’s CTO who posted a comment on Hacker News. However, any of Cloudflare’s customer websites could have had their response data mixed into data returning from those 3438 websites. Tavis Ormandy confirms this in the same Hacker News thread.

 

You can see an illustration of this data leakage in the diagram below. Any visitor to an ‘affected website’ which is one of the 3438 websites, could have had data from any one of over 5 million Cloudflare customer sites mixed into their response. Website 1 and Website 2 which are not ‘affected’ websites could have experienced data leakage to visitors of the ‘affected’ website.

 

 

What Data Was Leaked?

 

The data that was leaked could include passwords, cookies and authentication tokens. If an attacker is able to access the text of your cookies, they may be able to use them to sign into your website.

 

Internal Cloudflare private keys used to secure data being transferred between Cloudflare machines were also leaked.

 

At this point one should assume that there is a small chance that any private data transferred from any Cloudflare customer website to a site visitor may have been leaked between September 2016 and February of this year.

 

According to Cloudflare, no private SSL customer keys were leaked from the memory of their servers. A private SSL key is a key used to secure visitor connections to your website. If the your private SSL key is leaked, an attacker could listen in on all traffic to and from your website.

 

Has the Leaked Data Been Stored Somewhere?

 

Unfortunately Google and other search engines have been crawling the web during the time that this leak was occurring on Cloudflare’s systems. Those search engines stored the leaked data when they indexed one of the 3438 affected websites.

 

When viewing cached pages in Google, it is still possible at the time of writing (7pm Pacific Time on Feb 23rd) to view cached sensitive data in Google’s search results.

 

 

Similarly it is possible to view sensitive Cloudflare data in DuckDuckGo’s search results.

 

 

Since this leak was discovered, Google and other search engines have been working to try and remove the sensitive data from their caches. Based on what we are seeing this evening, there is still some data that needs to be removed.

 

What Should I Do if I use Cloudflare on my Website?

 

According to a conversation on Hacker News between the Cloudflare CTO and Tavis Ormandy, the security researcher who discovered this, any customer of Cloudflare’s could have been affected by this data leak.

 

WordPress site owners: Change your wp-config.php salts. This will log everyone out and invalidate cookies and sessions

 

If you are using WordPress, we recommend you edit your wp-config.php file and change all of the ‘salts’. This will automatically log all of your users out. This protects you and your site members in case any of their cookies have been stolen. Once you make this change, an attacker will no longer be able to use stolen session cookies from your site to sign in.

 

You need to change the following section in your wp-config.php and save it:

 

 

We suggest that you change the highlighted text in your wp-config.php to a long random string of characters and numbers. You can also use the link in the comment above the ‘define’ statements to generate a salt.

 

Non-WordPress Site Owners: Invalidate Sessions

 

If you use a different publishing platform, you will need to ensure that all sessions are invalidated. That means that your site visitor login cookies need to be made invalid. You will need to consult the documentation of your particular publishing platform to determine how to do this.

 

Suggest your site members change their passwords and change your Admin passwords

 

As a precautionary measure, you should suggest that your site members change their passwords. You should also change any admin level passwords.

 

You may need to comply with any data breach reporting requirements you have

 

This bug in Cloudflare’s systems is being described as a “data leak”. It is unclear at this point whether it is considered a “data breach”. A private database of customer personally identifiable information was not stolen. However, private data that may have included customer PII was leaked, no matter how small.

 

If you have HIPAA, PCI or other reporting requirements that relate to data breaches, you may want to get advice on whether you are required to report this incident.

 

Check the Search Results

 

It is difficult to determine if any private information from your site has been stored in the search results. However, we recommend that as a precautionary measure you do a few Google searches with your domain name in quotes. Add the following text to the search:

 

-site:example.com

Replace example.com with your own site domain. Take note of the minus sign before the word ‘site’ above. This will exclude results from your own website. You can exclude results from other sites using the same operator several times. You can also try adding the following in quotes:

 

CF-Host-Origin-IP:”

 

If you do find any results, report them immediately to Google for removal.

 

Who Discovered This and How?

 

Tavis Ormandy discovered this data leak in Cloudflare’s systems. He is a security researcher employed by Google’s Project Zero. Project Zero is a Google team who works on trying to find zero day (previously unknown) vulnerabilities.

 

Tavis discovered the data leak while analyzing Google search results. He noticed data that appeared to be a raw memory dump and he and his colleagues took a closer look and discovered it was a data leak in Cloudflare’s servers that was leaking data between websites.

 

Tavis is a well known researcher who has done ground breaking research in the computer security field over the past few years.

 

Has This Problem Been Fixed by Cloudflare?

 

The Cloudflare team have fixed the data leak on February 18th which was last Saturday. You can find a detailed technical post on Cloudflare’s blog describing what caused the leak and how it was fixed.

EXPLODING APPLE iPHONE COVER-UP!

Apple investigating ‘exploding’ iPhone 7 Plus after video of smoking handset goes viral

 

Smoke reportedly began pouring out of the phone on Wednesday morning

 

  • Tens of thousands of lithium ion phones explode all the time but companies only launch “investigations” when they get caught on video. Almost all exploding lithium “investigations are “fake investigations” that are actually cover-ups!

Girl’s iPhone 7 explodes in a mess of melted plastic

 

Apple is investigating a report of an iPhone 7 Plus catching fire, after a video of the incident went viral online.

 

The footage, posted on Twitter by 18-year-old Brianna Olivas from Tucson, Arizona, shows smoke pouring out of one side of the iPhone and the case melting away.

 

“Dude, what the f***?” Olivas can be heard saying in the background. “Are you f****** serious right now?”

The video, which has already been viewed more than a million times, garnered a swift reaction on Twitter, with more than 25,000 retweets and hundreds of replies.

 

Olivas told Mashable the trouble began on Tuesday, when her iPhone 7 Plus, which she bought from US mobile operator Sprint in January, wouldn’t turn on.

 

She took the phone to an Apple Store where employees ran tests and told her everything was fine. The phone appeared to be working normally again.

“The next morning I was asleep with my phone charging next to my head, my boyfriend grabbed the phone and put it on the dresser,” she told the tech site.

 

“He went the the [sic] restroom … and from the corner of his eye he saw my phone steaming and [heard] a squealing noise.

 

“By the time he got over to the phone it had already caught fire, he quickly grabbed the phone and threw it in the restroom … as soon as he threw it in the restroom is [sic] blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone.”

Olivas has since turned the phone over to Apple. Representatives from the company told her they are conducting tests and expect to know more within a week.

 

“We are in touch with the customer and looking into it,” an Apple spokesperson told Mashable.

 

It is not clear what might have caused the iPhone 7 to catch fire. Olivas told Gizmodo that she had been using the official Apple charger with the phone, (knock-off chargers are a common cause of overheating ).

The incident brings to mind the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled last year after handsets began bursting into flames.

 

According to Samsung, the fault lay with the lithium-ion batteries inside the device.

 

The first round of devices included batteries with casing that was too small, which led to them short circuiting and igniting.

 

Following a recall and reissue, the second set of batteries had a manufacturing defect that led to the same issue, prompting Samsung to scrap the model entirely.

 

The Silicon Valley Cartel headed by John Doerr, Eric Schmidt, Vinod Khosla, Larry Page, Steve Westly, Elon Musk and their minions, had made a deal with political campaign bosses David Plouffe, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanual, Bill Daley, Valarie Jarrett and John Podesta. In the rush to grab U.S. Treasury cash, the bad guys left out a key element: due diligence. The lithium ion concept had some horrific downsides.

 

 

 

It turns out, according to hundreds of new safety reports, that lithium ion batteries have a few problems:

 

 

 

– Lithium ion batteries poison & kill the workers that make them!

 

– Lithium ion batteries have burned numerous people alive in their cars!

 

– Lithium ion batteries poison and permanently disable factory workers who make them and nearby villages by the factories!

 

– Lithium ion batteries fires cannot be extinguished by fireman!

 

– Lithium ion batteries materials rely on corrupt mining scams in war torn Afghanistan and corrupt Boliva!

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode if they get bumped!

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode if they get wet! That’s right, putting water on a lithium ion battery fire only makes it WORSE!

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode when they pass through certain energy fields and LENR’s!

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode one after the other and set adjacent batteries off.

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode EVEN MORE OVER TIME because their chemistry becomes more and more unstable!

 

– Lithium ion batteries explode TENS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES PER YEAR and the incidents are hushed up by politicians who own stock in these batteries!

 

– Lithium ion batteries are the #1 cause of major airlines passengers suddenly “smelling smoke”!

 

– Lithium ion batteries are the singles largest cause of sudden fires in FEDEX and UPS trucks!

 

– Lithium ion batteries have set thousands of children and senior citizens on fire!

 

– Lithium ion batteries have crashed, or almost crashed, a large number of airplanes!

 

– Tesla’s Motors and Steve Chu were fully aware of these facts 18 years ago but they selected speedy profits over public safety!

 

– The toxic fumes from a lithium ion battery that has a thermal venting leak will give you CANCER according to Panasonic and 42 government documents!

 

– The toxic fumes from a lithium ion battery that has a thermal venting leak will ALSO give you BRAIN DAMAGE, LUNG DAMAGE, LIVER DAMAGE and MUTATE YOUR UNBORN CHILD according to Panasonic and 42 government documents!

 

– Obama Administration White House staff and Dept. of Energy Staff and California Senators and their Silicon Valley campaign financiers own the profits in these batteries and they are who covered these facts up!

OBAMA’S UBER UNCOVERED AS A “WHITE SEXIST MALE RAPE FACTORY!”

If you think your office culture is bad, read this.

“Ever wondered what it’s like to work at Uber?” Katie Benner of The New York Times asks. “@MikeIsaac takes a look.” A warning before you read Mike Isaac’s piece, Inside Uber’s Aggressive, Unrestrained Workplace Culture. Business Insider’s Biz Carson tweets, “I got to the fourth graf of this @MikeIsaac story and my jaw is already on the floor.” What did Isaac find? Well, “if a wizard turned charlie sheen into a startup it would just be uber,” is how Kate Knibbs of The Ringer puts it. The Times’ Pui-Wing Tam specifies: “Managers groping employees and making threats over performance.” A bright side maybe? “If you think your office culture is bad, read this,” says John McDuling of FairFax Media. Tweets Brian Chen of the Times: “Insanely great inside story by @MikeIsaac about the aggro, sexist and homophobic work culture at Uber.”

UBER IS THE MANIFESTATION OF EVERYTHING THAT IS THE LIVING STATE OF HELL IN SILICON VALLEY’S BRO-CULTURE!

FORWARD AND SHARE THIS WITH EVERYBODY! ANYONE WHO USES UBER IS AN IDIOT AND GETS TRACKED BY UBER’S SPY WARE!

WHO OPERATES THE ALT-LEFT MEDIA ATTACKS?

 

It is widely documented in the media that the Obama Administration used a “hit-job” team to take-down and destroy reporters, members of the public, opposition politicians and business competitors via character assassinations, blacklists, hacking, interference and other dirty tricks. The hit job team has been widely reported to have consisted of: John Podesta, Ben Rhodes, Sidney Blumenthal, David Axelrod, Gawker Media, Media Matters, Think Progress, Jared Cohen, In-Q-Tel, Former CIA operatives, New America Foundation, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, David Plouffe, Rahm Emanual, Jay Carney, Valarie Jarrett, A.L.I.C.E. and their contacts within “Big 6” media conglomerates.

 

 

 

HOW A DNC HIT-JOB

 

WORKS:

 

 

 

GOOGLE blacklists Natural News… removes 140,000 pages from its index… “memory holes” Natural News investigative articles on vaccines, pharma corruption, fraudulent science and more

 

 

 

(Natural News) Late last week, I received a direct threat that warned if I did not take steps to destroy Alex Jones and InfoWars, I would be targeted for destruction in a campaign of smears, censorship and defamation.

 

Instead of giving in to the enemy, I refused to take the bait and went public with details of the threat, warning everyone in the new media that sinister forces were now being pursued to undermine and silence every anti-establishment (and pro-Trump) voice on the internet.

 

True to form, today the entire Natural News website has been blacklisted by Google, entirely without warning. This is just one of many censorship events that have all taken place over the last few days:

 

  • Last weekend, damning videos were leaked in a focused effort to take out Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart News editor and gay conservative who has openly supported President Trump. Milo was hit with an attack wave of “opposition research” and was forced to resign from Breitbart on Monday, citing the “cynical media witch hunt” that brought him down.

  • Yesterday, InfoWars was blackballed by AdRoll.com, an online advertising distribution company. According to Alex Jones, the blacklisting by AdRoll will cost InfoWars $3 million in annual revenues, possibly causing InfoWars to abandon plans of opening a Washington D.C. bureau to cover the Trump administration with real news (instead of the fake news from CNN and elsewhere).

  • The Shopify e-commerce platform was aggressively threatened by organized Leftists to dump the Breitbart online store and thereby deny revenues to Breitbart. Shopify’s CEO refused to kow-tow to the intimidation and censorship and has maintained a “neutral” position on political issues, focusing on running e-commerce platforms for everyone.

  • Today, Natural News has been hit by Google, which has blacklisted the entire Natural News domain and removed over 140,000 pages from its index. The take down of Natural News happened this morning, and it follows a pattern of censorship we’re seeing being leveled against other pro-Trump websites. Google sent no warning whatsoever to our “webmaster tools” email address on file with them. The shut off of Natural News was clearly driven by a human decision, not an algorithm. We’re currently attempting to determine Google’s claimed justification for censoring our entire website, and we hope to have NaturalNews.com restored in Google’s index.

 

Some of the news now being censored by Google includes our laboratory testing of the U.S. water supply, where we conducted laboratory testing to discover that 6.7% of municipal water is contaminated with toxic metals. Google has also blacklisted our announcement of free laboratory testing services for Native American water supplies impacted by oil pipeline leaks. Also blacklisted is our exclusive coverage of the GlaxoSmithKline criminal indictment by the U.S. Justice Dept. and our interview with the whistleblower who helped achieved a record $3 billion settlement with the criminal drug company.

 

Apparently, Google believes the public should no longer have access to these investigative journalism articles… and 139,997 more articles that cover activism, science frauds, drug industry criminality, political corruption and more. You are witnessing a modern-day book burning by the internet Gestapo that now decides what knowledge you’re never allowed to access… especially because much of that knowledge can help set humanity free.

 

I describe it in more detail in this podcast: (article continues below)

 

 

Silencing Natural News is all part of the globalist “script” for the enslavement of a population kept ignorant of reality

 

Natural News is, of course, one of the world’s top educational and activism sources exposing the lies of dangerous medicine, toxic mercury in vaccines, the corporate-quack science behind GMOs, cancer industry fraud and so on. By providing truthful, empowering and passionate information to the public, we harm the profit model of the corrupt medical cartels that fund the media, lobby the government and influence internet gatekeepers with advertising money. (Google has already declared war on natural medicine and nutritional supplements, all but banning them from being advertised on Google Adsense.)

 

The removal of Natural News from Google’s index means that millions of people may now be unnecessarily harmed by toxic medicines, herbicides and brain-damaging mercury in vaccines because they are being denied the “other side of the story” that’s censored by the corporate-controlled media. By censoring Natural News, Google is, in effect, siding with the criminal pharmaceutical industry that has been charged with multiple felony crimes and caught bribing doctors, fraudulently altering scientific studies, conducting medical experiments on children and price fixing their drugs to maximize profits.

 

In effect, censorship of Natural News is part of the establishment’s war on humanity which includes depopulation measures (Bill Gates), covert infertility vaccines, corporate-run media disinfo campaigns and a full-on assault against scientific truth and free speech conducted in the public interest.

 

With the attacks on Milo, InfoWars and Natural News, what you are witnessing right now is the coordinated silencing of every voice that opposes the corrupt, globalist establishment. All such voices are being “memory holed” in the run-up to an attempted Orwellian-style domination over all information run by Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Twitter and other internet gatekeepers. This is all by design. It is nefarious, sinister and represents nothing less than the final desperate assault to enslave humanity by silencing truth.

 

Targeted by anti-Trump globalists

 

It’s clear to me that Natural News is being targeted primarily because of our support for President Trump and his review of vaccine safety. It is now apparent that any person who engages in real science, critical thinking or any attempt to protect children from the brain damaging effects of mercury in vaccines is going to be silenced, discredited, smeared and blacklisted. This is an astonishing realization about the depths of total corruption in society today and how the medical cartels control information to maximize their profits off human suffering.

 

Note that if I had agreed to betray my colleagues and agree to participate in a smear campaign against Alex Jones, everything would have been fine with Natural News and you wouldn’t see the attacks being waged against us. The tactic now being pursued by the establishment is, “Join the Dark Side or be destroyed.”

 

I won’t ever join the Dark Side, which means I will be silenced. The message from Google and other information gatekeepers is now clear: Obediently conform to the status quo or you will be banished from the digital realm.

 

This is, in essence, nothing less than a modern-day book burning by anti-human globalists who are determined to keep humanity ignorant (and diseased).

 

The real agenda of the humanity-hating globalist agenda is now on full display: It’s about total domination over all information so that humanity never learns that cancer can be prevented with vitamin D, or that glyphosate herbicide causes cancer, or that statin drugs are a multi-billion-dollar medical scam. The Sheeple are all slated to be sacrificed upon the altar of Big Pharma profits, and anyone who dares stand in their way will be eliminated by any means necessary.

 

What you can do to fight this brazen censorship and assault being waged against humanity

 

First off, stop using anti-truth internet gatekeepers like Google, Facebook, Yahoo and Twitter. They are quietly controlling your thoughts, ideas and beliefs by limiting your access to valuable resources like Natural News.

 

Second, use GoodGopher.com as your search engine, as it provides you with uncensored search results from thousands of independent media websites (many of which are banned or penalized by Google).

 

Third, bookmark NaturalNews.com in your browser and check it at least twice daily (we post new content each morning and each evening). Manually type it into your browser if you have to. From now on, never rely on some other gatekeeper to bring you to Natural News, because those gatekeepers are censoring all our content.

 

Be sure to also sign up to our email newsletter using the form below. This email newsletter is one of the best ways we can reach you without being filtered out by other sources. As you might expect, Gmail censors our newsletters too, so don’t use a Gmail email address. (Yes, the censorship is an all-out assault.)

 

Finally, make Censored.news a primary resource to watch for breaking news on important events that are being censored by the fake news media (CNN, WashPo, NYT, etc.).

 

Finally, prepare for total war on humanity. I’m being told from other sources that the “final solution” is coming soon from the globalists, and it’s going to be unleashed as an all-out war against Trump, liberty, free speech, natural medicine and every individual who dares stand up and speak the truth against the lying globalists and their fake news minions. The reason they are silencing Natural News, InfoWars and other outlets is because they are preparing for a very big false flag assault and they don’t want independent media websites to be able to counter the “official” news narrative.

 

I’m serious. Get ready.

AGILE/SCRUM is litteraly the homeopathy of the developers community (programming)

submitted ago by roznak

AGILE/SCRUM is literally the homeopathy of the developers community. It is PLACEBO!

Everyone is copying from everyone else because if the other 10 companies does it, then it must be good.

It is nothing more than: “10 steps successful millionaires do to become successful. Now buy this course for only $1000”

The only people getting wealthy rich are the course teachers. Or in this case the SCRUM teachers that suck lots of money from courses for something that simply works as PLACEBO.

How can you test this?

  • Take one team that works in SCRUM mode.

  • Take one good developer and let him work alone.

Give both teams the exact same development job.

That one good developer guy will tap-dance around your SCRUM team and still have time to spare. And the bonus part is that the one developer will even have code that even a guy from school can understand because it is not abstracted to almost useless to understand code.

It is shocking to see how good developers are wasting productivity time on this mindless AGILE/SCRUM methodology that is push like a religion.

I largely agree. Agile has been the bane of my existence. The problem with Agile is that there are so many things that looks good on paper which is why they sell so much of it. But as a whole, my experience is that it stretches development time by 2-4 times the duration and increases cost because now you have a product manager, a scrum master, a scrum coach and the client advocate who does the work of what used to be one experienced PM.

A team is only good as its developers. Give me 1-2 good developers and I can deliver under budget and on time under any process even agile. Have a traditional makeup of 20% good and 80% bad, the developer is so busy doing stupid agile processes like pair programming, and showcase setup so each sprint you only get 30% productivity and everything goes into setting up for the stupid showcase. Just let 1-2 developers work with a full understanding of the requirements and allow them to speak directly to client for constant feedback and you have a successful project, every time.

I hate that inception and user stories drive the requirements and most people enforcing it doesn’t even understand whats needed for a good developer to do good work.

[–] hotairmakespopcorn 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Formal development processes exist BECAUSE so many developers are poor developers. For good developers, most formal processes only act as a hindrance. This is exactly why you’re observing what you observe. As is the traditional 80/20 rule, 20% of your developers do 80% of the work. Which leaves us with what to do with the remaining 80% of the team. Yes, they can contribute, but they require some type of process to follow otherwise they’ll get lost in the weeds every time. Sapping even more time away from the 20%. Management sees this as good because you get better utilization of the 80%. It may well result in a net win, if implemented correctly. But, of course, that’s not how the 20% want to spend their time – mostly.

Agile is really about neutering the 20% to make the 80% appear and/or be more productive. It’s a bridal to force the 20% to drag the 80% into the solution domain. For body count houses, this is great stuff. For good developers, it’s a nightmare.

Let’s face it, good PMs are harder to find than good developers. And good developers are as rare as unicorns. The result is that most projects get stuck in suckage-land, whereby the 20% are stuck fixing the issues caused by leadership, management, the PM, and the rest of the team. Which is usually compounded by the fact that everyone wants to work reactively rather than pro-actively. After all, who can possibly foresee that if you implement your solution with highly specialized patterns and that if the requirements change at all, it’s going to mandate massive refactoring. But, hey, there’s a reactive process for that, so it’s all good.

Excuse me, I have to go finishing butting my head into the wall for another couple of hours.

So, essentially it’s Common Core all over again?

But, muh project scope. I can’t trust developers to talk to normal people. /s

[–] roznak [S] 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Pair programming that is another thing! Back in 2000 they also talked about pair programming. I tried it and it fails. It always makes the guy that is less developed feel dumb and ends up in depression. It causes stress in these developers which is a shame because some of them are very good at what they are doing, just less experienced.

[–] FuckFatReddit 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I think you can have a bit of best of both worlds. Where I work we take the good parts of SCRUM and have left most of the shite behind. Bearing in mind we’re only 3 full timers and a half timer so that leaves us more flexible.

Having said that I had a deadline coming up my ass and lost time getting my presentation ready!!!!

[–] BenKekJr 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I absolutely agree, and I believe leftists / liberals love it. Because they need a master, without a master they feel like they have no direction. Others hide behind the secret sauce, they are bad/poor at their jobs. In the same way they say… I WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO SOLVE ALL MY PROBLEMS! They want Scrum/Agile to be the authority that solves all their problems.

It’s so funny, accompanying AGILE/SCRUM at the company I work for is this “us” talk, where they treat Developers, QA, Devops/Admins like they are all equal. I’m a Developer for a reason, I want to write code. I’m not here to administrate your servers, or debug your dns resolution issue, or backup your mail server. Now if I was at a startup, I get it, you do what the business needs you to do. But at a corporation, the Irony of saying “We are all equal, the team is all equal” is so ironic because it only works one way, no one ever writes code for me, and yet I find myself do everyone else’s job. It’s a system of cultural marxism.

Recently I pointed out that a particular engineer needed to do something (we’ll call him Rob), literally because he had permissions / credentials.
My manager interrupted me and said… well it’s not just Rob’s job, “it’s the teams job”. The snowflake inclusion culture has hit software development / scrum, and all the developers have to move as slowly as the least competent one. I literally think Scrum was invented to destroy American productivity.

Snake Oil 100%.

Was told by a “scrum master” – if anything takes longer than 2 weeks it will never get done. Well what was Christopher Columbus thinking.

Scrum exists to deter from any great invention, to stifle the genius of any single individual, and to only apply obvious, mundane, and easy solutions to all problems.

[–] Gargilius 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

The whole thing is about micromanagement, that’s what it boils down to; might work great to herd newbies and less experienced developers, but it is indeed a nightmare situation for experienced devs…

I have found this blog entry from Michael O. Church to be particularly interesting on the subject.

[–] BenKekJr 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

The Violent Transparency part of that post, is absolutely on target. What a concise way to describe it.

It’s well known that creative people lose their creativity if asked to explain themselves while they are working. It’s the same with software.

[–] ForgotMyName 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

A lot of what you’re talking about has nothing to do with SCRUM or Agile. E.g. – Whether the code that a team creates is understandable and maintainable. If you don’t understand why abstraction is valuable I question your understanding of development in general. I’m not saying this to belittle you but to inform others that are reading what you’re writing and taking it as gospel.

SCRUM/Agile are just tools. Like any tool, they can be misused by morons and you’ll end up with poor results. I’ve worked on teams small and large on SCRUM and waterfall projects alike and I have seen SCRUM be very successful when properly implemented.

As to your comparison contest – One person will always out-code a team if that team is composed of poor developers. Even if there are 50% rock stars and 50% idiots the team will still lose. The good devs will spend all of their time cleaning up after the bad devs. This is why some companies are extremely aggressive about hiring “the best”. Bad developers aren’t just slow, they are cancer. They actively hinder the rest of the team’s progress.

TL;DR – If your life is crap it’s because you are stuck with crap management and crap devs. Find a new place to work and pray that things are better there (spoiler: they probably won’t be).

I’ve never even heard of AGILE/SCRUM. What is that?

[–] DearestTrudeau 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Agile is an attempt to turn Pajeets and similar non performers into interchangeable cogs. It has the advantage of reducing the impact of developers that actually know their shit, and forcing them into the peg hole that management has prepared. Lose-lose.

Professional paid protesters turn congressional town halls into must-see political TV

Loud and angry, professional paid protesters turn congressional town halls into must-see political TV

Paid for by George Soros and Tom Steyer and organized by BLM and OFA, also paid for by Tom Steyer and George Soros

They came by the hundreds, in big cities and rural hamlets, to heckle, plead, badger and, in some instances, to protest the protests themselves.

Congress is in recess this week and a citizenry suddenly spurred to action used the opportunity to let their returning lawmakers know just how they feel about the tempestuous past month in Washington.

“Winners make policy and losers go home,” a taunting Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate leader, told an invitation-only gathering in his home state of Kentucky, as about 1,000 protesters gathered outside.

Not exactly.

The town hall meeting, a throwback to a time of more intimate connection, has become in the social media age a political organizing tool, a piece of performance theater and a worldwide stage.

Obamacare, immigration, environmental regulation, Social Security, Russian meddling in the 2016 election and Trump, Trump, Trump — all poured forth this week in the form of questions, loudly and heatedly.

The raucous gatherings have been the mirror image of the clamorous sessions that birthed the tea party movement early in President Obama’s term, a conservative opposition that tormented him — and sometimes the GOP establishment — throughout his eight years in office.

In central Florida, Republican Rep. Dennis A. Ross learned that being reelected a third time with 58% of the vote did not guarantee a friendly crowd.

Appearing before about 250 people and a comfort dog, Ross dodged questions, catcalls and boos before exiting just shy of his scheduled hour appearance.

The last question had three parts: about the expense to taxpayers of President Trump’s frequent Florida visits, about his seemingly fondness for Russia and about the president’s still-unseen tax returns.

“This is the first anyone has brought that to my attention,” Ross said of the reported $10 million it cost to shuttle Trump for three trips between Washington and his Palm Beach resort.

The boos were so hearty and long that the rest of Ross’ answer could not be heard, though one word was audible — “Hawaii,” likely a reference to where Obama vacationed.

Then the congressman quickly hustled out the back door to a chant of “Do your job!” — the unofficial rallying cry for those who consider the Republican-run Congress too pliant toward the president.

For Rep. Buddy Carter, a two-term GOP lawmaker representing a staunchly conservative stretch of coastal Georgia, the boos began as soon as he tried to present plans to replace the Affordable Care Act.

More than 300 people, many wearing Planned Parenthood T-shirts and waving pink and purple paper hearts, squeezed into a college auditorium in Savannah for the standing-room-only event. Outside, scores more chanted, “Let us in!”

The crowd erupted in jeers as Carter displayed a slide titled “Broken Obamacare Promises.”

“Affordable Care Act!” a chorus of voices yelled, objecting to the use of the Republican pejorative for Obama’s signature healthcare law.

“You know about the promises and you know about the reality,” Carter told constituents, saying that annual healthcare premiums had risen $4,300 for the average family.

“Look, folks, Obamacare is collapsing,” Carter said.

“You collapsed it!” a man in the audience hollered back, and the crowd roared.

An earlier round of town halls this month produced a number of screaming spectacles, prompting many Republican lawmakers to scrub their latest recess schedules of any such face-to-face encounters.

Some preferred to conduct safer “telephonic town halls,” where participants were screened and no cameras threatened to turn confrontation into the Internet’s next big viral moment.

Others skipped meeting with constituents altogether; in California, the liberal group Indivisible circulated milk cartons bearing the word “missing” and the face of Republican Rep. Paul Cook, a three-term congressman from the southeastern desert.

Democrats were far more eager to lend critics of the president and GOP lawmakers a prominent platform.

For some people, the gatherings were akin to therapy, or a group session on translating grief into action.

“Sign people up, get people involved,” Rep. Tony Cárdenas exhorted a crowd of 300 crammed into an auditorium at the Cesar E. Chavez Learning Academies in Los Angeles’ heavily Democratic San Fernando Valley.

“Register people to vote, beg other people who are citizens, ‘please vote,’” Cárdenas said. “The more people who vote, the better the results are.”

Some specifically credited Trump for their attendance.

Jennifer Bruns, 49, joined her husband and their two teenage sons at Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider’s suburban Chicago town hall, which vastly overflowed the 225-seat Northbrook library. She was apolitical before Nov. 8.

Trump’s election “absolutely lit a fire under my butt, not just to take interest,” Bruns said, “but that I have a responsibility to do whatever I can to make sure our values stay in place.”

In the inevitable way of both politics and physics, the pushback to the president and Republican Congress drew its own pushback.

(Trump weighed in via Twitter: “The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!”)

In Mariposa, a small tourist way station on the road to Yosemite, the audience included hundreds who turned out in support of the president and Republican Rep. Tom McClintock, who left his last town hall, this month outside Sacramento, under police escort.

Owen Swart, 58, came wearing a National Rifle Assn. ball cap and “Infidel” T-shirt declaring his love of both pork and guns. “If that offends you,” his shirt read. “I’ll help you pack.”

It was important, Swart said, to show that the liberal marchers who flooded the streets after Trump’s inauguration and those questioning the president’s legitimacy — and sanity — don’t speak for him or those he knows.

“We may not make as much noise and have signs,” said Swart, a financial advisor in Modesto, “but we work hard and we vote.”

About 900 people showed up in an auditorium at the Mariposa fairground, more than 10 times the usual attendance for a McClintock town hall and better than a third the local population.

He drew an immediate burst of applause by dispensing with opening remarks. “This evening is yours,” McClintock said, “so have at it.”

And the audience did, for more than twice the hour he had scheduled.

He was grilled about repealing Obamacare and promising the replacement would be even better. “What’s the plan?” voices cried out. “Show us a bill!”

He was mocked for questioning the science behind global warming. “The planet has been warming on and off since the last ce age,” McClintock said to hoots and laughter.

He was ridiculed for likening Trump to the robust Presidents Andrew Jackson and Theodore Roosevelt, and taunted for minimizing the contacts between Trump allies and the Russian government.

“I think you will find votes I have cast have the support of the vast majority of people in this district,” said McClintock, who was easily reelected in November to a fifth term. “The moment they don’t, there’ll be somebody else standing here.”

“Good idea,” someone shouted.

But even some of the harshest questions were prefaced with thanks for McClintock’s willingness to show up early and stay late.

“God bless all of you for being here,” he said at one point after a woman in the audience said the huge turnout was a show of resistance to Trump. (In fact, about a third or so of the crowd appeared strongly supportive of the president.)

The big question is whether the outpouring at town halls, the circuit-jamming phone calls to Capitol Hill, the email- and letter-writing campaigns are the start of a meaningful political movement or merely an angry spasm. The answer is unknowable until the next nationwide election in November 2018.

McClintock offered this bit of advice on meeting with constituents in the meantime.

“If you’re going to do it,” he said, “get the biggest room you can.”

Barabak reported from Mariposa and Cherwa from Clermont, Fla. Times staff writer Kurtis Lee in Los Angeles and special correspondents Jenny Jarvie in Savannah, Ga., and Lee V. Gaines in Northbrook, Ill., contributed to this report.

Tesla electric car crash explosion reignites debate about battery safety

Tesla electric car crash explosion reignites debate about battery safety

A Tesla Model S electric car crash in Indianapolis on 3 November 2016 that killed its two occupants has  raised further questions about whether Tesla’s electric car technology, and indeed wider lithium-ion battery technology, is safe, according to an NBC News report.

Model S - Image: Tesla

Tesla had previously taken steps to prevent the lithium-ion batteries used in its vehicles from inadvertently catching fire, but this crash, where the driver hit a tree, caused an immediate conflagration. Emergency responders reported that when they arrived at the scene, individual batteries from the Tesla’s pack were popping out of the vehicle and exploding.

According to NBC, Tesla has come under scrutiny as a result of previous fires involving its vehicles. The Model S was involved in several other well-publicised incidents in 2013, most of the fires triggered by road debris unexpectedly puncturing the battery pack. Tesla quickly responded by adding a new titanium shell that reduced the likelihood of such punctures.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk downplayed the risk, noting that there are “thousands” of gasoline-powered vehicles that are involved in fires every year. Referring to one of the Tesla incidents on a Washington State highway, he said in a blog post, “Had a conventional gasoline car encountered the same object on the highway, the result could have been far worse.”

In a 2013 blog post, CEO Musk also declared that, “For consumers concerned about fire risk, there should be absolutely zero doubt that it is safer to power a car with a battery than a large tank of highly flammable liquid.”

Tesla told NBC News, “We have been deeply saddened by this accident and have been working closely with authorities to facilitate their report. While it can be difficult to determine the precise speed of a vehicle in such a crash, the observed damage and debris field indicate a very high speed collision.”

The incident highlights concerns about lithium technology at a time when the chemistry is again coming under close scrutiny. There have been enough reports of fires and meltdowns involving the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that the FAA barred passengers from carrying the smartphone onto commercial airplanes. A number of airlines have now severely restricted — or barred entirely — shipment of lithium batteries in cargo holds.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Congressional IT Spies Took $100K in Iraqi Money. Investigation Deepens!

EXCLUSIVE: House Dem IT Guys In Security Probe Secretly Took $100K In Iraqi Money

Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

The money was a loan from Dr. Ali al-Attar, an Iraqi political figure, and was funneled through a company with “impossible”-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.

Imran Awan, ringleader of the group that includes his brothers Abid and Jamal, has provided IT services since 2005 for Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman. The brothers are from Pakistan.

The trio also worked for dozens of other House Democrats, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Those positions likely gave them access to congressional emails and other sensitive documents.

The brothers, whose access to House IT networks has been terminated, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police.

Wasserman Schultz resigned from her DNC post following a disastrous email hack during the 2016 campaign. Her House spokesman did not respond to TheDCNF’s question Monday about Imran’s employment status. As of Feb. 6, she had declined to fire Imran.

Investigators found that congressional information was being copied to an off-site server and they suspect the brothers of improperly accessing information and stealing congressional property. Chiefs of staff for the employing Democrats were notified Feb. 2.

Soon after Imran began working for members of Congress, Imran’s and Abid’s wives — Hina Alvi and Natalia Sova — also began receiving congressional paychecks, TheDCNF found. Imran’s employers included two members of the intelligence committee, Indiana Democrat Rep. Andre Carson and California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier.

 

By 2009, the family was simultaneously managing a full-time car dealership in Virginia, with Abid running day-to-day operations after contributing $250,000 in startup cash. It was called Cars International A, LLC, referred to as “CIA” in court documents.

Imran boasted unusual clout among House Democrats, and was even pictured conversing with former President Bill Clinton. After Rao Abbas, who was owed money by the dealership, threatened to sue amid allegations of deception and theft, Abbas appeared on the congressional payroll and received $250,000 in taxpayer payments.

Abid had “100% control” of the dealership, a one-time business partner said in court documents, in addition to his $165,000-a-year job working full-time for multiple representatives, including Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan and California Democrat Jim Costa.

“He had the dealer license and sole responsibility of running it. Abid would put cars on the lot, take them in consignment, sell them, do all the title work and get money from the retail sale,” according to court documents. Multiple emails show the Awan brothers conducting business such as attending car auctions on weekdays.

“Imram later acted as owner since CIA was considered family business by the Awans,” Abid’s one-time business partner, Nasir Khattak, said in court documents. The car dealership’s finances consisted of byzantine transfers in which staff and cars were often swapped between it and a dealership next door, Khattak said.

Despite numerous family members making $160,000 congressional salaries, debts went unpaid by the brothers, including to the Congressional Federal Credit Union.

“It was very bad record-keeping in Cars International … it is close to impossible to make any sense out of all the transactions that happened,” Khattak said in court documents.

The $100,000 loan came as the dealership continued to rack up debt, court records show.

“Ali Al-Attar was out of the country as he was involved in politics and the formation of the Iraqi government,” Khattak said in court documents.

In addition to his other jobs, Imran is a real estate agent, and Khattak is also a realtor who obtained the cash from Al-Attar and passed it through bank accounts used for real estate deals in Fairfax County, Va.

“Having lost my and Abid’s collective investment of $500k due to Awan’s mismanagement, [CIA] was further in debt $400k to other creditors,” Khattak said in a lawsuit.

Khattak said Imran masterminded the family’s finances and by late 2010, Imran “was running the business in full control” and “instructed Abid not to even speak to anyone.”

The Iraqi cash disappeared amid a dispute between Khattak and the Awans. Khattak said defaulting on the loan meant Al-Attar now owned the business, but the Awans refused to relinquish control.

In 2012, Abid declared personal bankruptcy listing more than $1 million in liabilities. While debts to others went unpaid, he kept ownership of two houses, and Imran kept his own substantial property, despite his admitted role in the failed business.

Bankruptcy documents listed Abbas as a creditor and said he might sue Abid, but Abbas later took the brothers’ side in a lawsuit against Khattak, who said that the Awans had somehow manipulated him to do so. Not long after, Abbas appeared for the first time on the congressional payroll, and collected $250,000 from taxpayers through the end of last year.

Four out of the six Democrats he worked for also employed Imran. His employers included a member of the intelligence committee, Patrick Murphy of Florida; a member of the foreign affairs committee, Theodore Deutch of Florida; and Brad Ashford of Nebraska, who is on the armed services committee.

Abbas’ congressional email was cut off in early February, around the time the Capitol Police revealed that they had uncovered a scheme involving a network of IT aides. The Awans’ access has also been cut off. Reached at a personal email address, Abbas did not respond to repeated questions from TheDCNF.

Do You Think Imran Awan Was Partly Responsible For The DNC Leaks?

Abid claimed the Iraqi doctor may never have existed. “If as suspected, all of this is a charade, particularly if it is learned the mysterious Dr. Al-Attar doesn’t exist or didn’t sign the documents, then the whole matter rises to a higher level,” he said in court documents.

The youngest Awan brother, Jamal, was also placed on the House payroll at 20 years of age and makes $160,000, far higher than others in similar jobs.

TheDCNF was the first to identify the brothers and Alvi, and now, Sova and Abbas.

Federal Judge Issues History Making Precedent Against CNN Which Also Advances Univision/Gizmodo Case

 

 

Federal Judge Issues History Making Precedent Against CNN Which Also Advances Univision/Gizmodo Case

 

 

 

Feb. 21 – A federal Judge in Georgia threw out CNN’s effort to dismiss a “Fake News” Court Case, as the Judge cites “a Series of False and Defamatory News Reports”

 

CNN attempted to get the case dismissed involving Davide Carbone, CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach who accused CNN of fabricating a story about his hospital. Federal Judge Orinda Evans cited a “series of false and defamatory news reports” that insinuated St. Mary’s had an infant mortality rate that was 3 times higher than the national average while ignoring information that made the Medical Center look good. The libel lawsuit against CNN seeking $30 million in damages will continue onward thanks to federal district judge Orinda Evans. Because this was a federal ruling, it sets a legal precedent nation wide.

 

Carbone, who actually lost his job due to the fake news reports “has presented enough evidence at this early stage of the case to suggest that CNN ‘was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its reporting” according to The National Law Journal.

 

To make matters worse, judge Evans also found evidence of “actual malice” when insisting on reporting the Medical Center was under an official investigation, even after Florida’s Agency for Healthcare administration adamantly denied this was taking place.

 

Carbone’s lawyer, a famous public rights advocate, describes the ruling as a major victory.

 

False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences,” he said. “Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit.”

 

The ruling,” he added, “serves as a well-reasoned reminder that the media, its defense lawyers, and its lobbyists do not have a corner on the market of correct interpretation and application of the First Amendment.”

 

Plaintiffs are now seeking litigation financing for a similar case against Univision. Plaintiffs claim that “Defendants: Univision were hired by political campaign financiers (ie: http://xyzcase.xyz , http://greencorruption.blogspot.com , etc. )to run reprisal character assassinations. Plaintiff’s claim in particular, that Defendants took compensation for, and engaged in, malicious and coordinated tactics to seek to destroy, damage, harm and ruin Plaintiffs via an illicit media “hit-job” service which Defendants regularly offered in covert commerce and engaged in regularly against targets that Defendants were hired to seek to ruin as part of reprisal, vendetta, retribution programs operated for business and political competitors of the targets. Plaintiffs state that historical facts and other history-making lawsuits by third parties, (ie: Hulk Hogan, Carbone, Huon, etc.) has proven Defendants to be the single largest core violator of human rights, in this manner, in the world. Plaintiffs state that Defendants offer the service of creating and publishing contrived “hatchet job” movies, fake news articles, faked comments and repercussion backlinks describing the Plaintiffs in horrific descriptors and that “The attack material is reposted, “impression accelerated”, “click-farm fertilized” and Streisand array reposted by Defendants massive character assassination technology via servers algorithms and technical internet manipulation daily as recently as yesterday. Defendants also embed the article in job hiring databases on Axciom, Palantir, Taleo and other databases used by all hiring and recruiting services in order to prevent Plaintiffs from ever receiving income for W2 or 1099 work ever again. Defendants own staff then post thousands of fake comments, below each attack item, under fake names, designed to make it appear as if a broad consensus of the public agreed with the defamation messages by Defendants. Almost all of the fake comments were created by a handful of Defendants own staff pretending to be a variety of outside voices. Defendants provide the service of delivering “weaponized text and media to corporate clients”. Defendants replicated various versions of these attack items across all of their different brands and facade front publications and added additional fake comments to each on a regular basis.”

 

Plaintiffs are seeking litigation financing in order to take their case all the way to jury trial.

Alt-Left Main Stream Media Buying All Of Their FAKE READERS as FAKE CLICKS FROM CHINA!!!

FAKE NEWSFLOW: Are The NY Times, Univision, Guardian, And WaPo Buying Clicks? China Jumps From Trickle To Half Of All Traffic In Two Months

Last week the Failing New York Times published an article crediting Donald Trump and the controversial election for “more subscribers in three months than all of 2015,” claiming the addition of 276,000 new “digital-only” customers. The beleaguered publication owned by Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim is doing so well in fact that they are vacating 8 floors of their New York headquarters to generate “significant rental revenue,” as well as pushing lame Twitter ads offering 40% off subscriptions which state things like “Truth. It’s vital to democracy” and “The best independent journalism.”
While subscriber count may have allegedly increased, website traffic really didn’t start picking up until the first week in December. The Washington Post and The Guardian (UK) saw similar traffic trends around the same time, in stark contrast to most of their peers. A quick before-and-after illustrates the dramatic pickup in visitors:
Traffic begins to pick up significantly around the middle of December for all three. Here’s a look at the overall picture compared to various other news outlets:
That’s odd. Now let’s take a look at each outlet’s traffic by country for the NYT, which shows significant increases in visitors from China, jumping from 5.1% to 49.2% of all site traffic in two months:
What’s most interesting is that The NY Times has been completely blocked in China since 2012, and just last month Apple was ordered to pull two NYT apps from the App store despite users being unable to view content since the original 2012 ban. Per the NY Times:
When the Chinese government began blocking the Times websites in 2012, it also prevented users with Times apps from downloading new content.
People seeking to bypass internet filters have traditionally used VPN’s (Virtual Private Networks) which tunnel through China’s highly restrictive firewall, however China has been cracking down on VPN use for several years.
Now let’s take a look at the Washington Post and The Guardian, which are not blocked in China – jumping from virtually no traffic to 58.9% and 57% of site-wide visitors respectively.
These dramatic increases in traffic have significantly bumped each site’s Alexa ranking by as much as 38%, a key metric used in website valuation. Of note, BBC.com experienced a similar boost, and others may have as well.
Not to overstate the obvious, but considering the URL ban on the New York Times, one might conclude that this massive increase which now accounts for nearly half of all website traffic is some type of high volume traffic generating bot server unimpeded by China’s restrictive firewall, synthetically inflating visitor counts for affected sites.
All three news outlets spent much of 2016 trying to influence the election in favor of Hillary Clinton with biased coverage and regular hit pieces against Donald Trump. Since winning the election, President Trump has declared war on much of the mainstream media – branding it the “opposition party,” while remaining under heavily biased attack. China is no fan of the US President either; between the threat of tariffs and Trump’s disregard for the long held “One China” policy over Taiwanese recognition, China has both economic and political reasons to try and mitigate the US President’s tough talk.
In fact, Chinese state-owned JAC Motor and Mexican auto manufacturer Giant Motors, co-owned by NYT owner Carlos Slim, are jointly investing over $200 Million dollars to build SUV’s in Hidalgo, Mexico after President Trump’s continued spats with Mexico over the proposed border wall, as well as the demand-killing tariffs he claims will pay for it. Amazon, which shares an owner with the Washington Post, was recently granted permission by China to begin forwarding freight from Chinese merchants selling on its site, and they have also been allowed to operate Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the highly restrictive country.
While not much else is known at this point, the list of entities with the capability of pushing half the traffic to several major websites from Chinese domains seems rather short.

NANCY PELOSI HAS GONE NUTS OVER TRUMP CUTTING OFF HER STOCK PROFITEERING:

Nancy Pelosi Released A Document Calling Herself: “Dangerous & Incompetent”

“One month ago, President Trump took the oath of office. Since taking office, I believe his dangerous, incompetent policies and actions have jeopardized our national security, our economy, and our values.

It seems to me, every day the American people see new evidence of the financial, personal, and political grip the Russians have on the President.

The resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn for undisclosed communications with the Russians and revelations that the campaign team was in constant contact with Russian intelligence agents, in my opinion reflect the dangerous, incompetent conduct of this administration.

In my view, these events show that the president’s weakness before Russia, along with the unconstitutional refugee and Muslim ban and the cruel new ICE raids on families are all a part of a failing vision for America.

Hard-working families and our democracy demand better.  That’s why we are fighting for all.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi held a press conference on Capitol Hill following the meeting with the Acting Director of ICE. 

Where are the Jobs?

Rather than create good-paying jobs and focus on protecting our national security, I feel the President has squandered his first 30 days in office by enacting policies that put Putin and Wall Street first.

While doubling down on a plan to waste billions of taxpayer dollars on a border wall that Mexico will never pay for, in contrast House Democrats are fighting for comprehensive immigration reform that protects all families.

It is my belief that President Trump is threatening San Francisco and other cities that refuse to force local police to do immigration agents’ jobs. Meanwhile, we will continue to honor the highest ideals of our nation by pressing for the withdrawal of the ban.

In my view, instead of championing health coverage for all Americans, the President and the House Republican leadership’s agenda is threatening the health security of millions of Americans, and attacking a woman’s right to make her own reproductive health decisions.

As San Franciscans, we know that the beauty is in the mix and we know that our diversity makes us stronger. House Democrats pledge to stay vigilant and fight for all Americans. 

My staff and an army of volunteer attorneys were on the ground at SFO finding ways to assist constituents returning home from abroad, who were affected by the President’s recent executive order that banned travel to the United States by lawful permanent residents, refugees, and other valid visa holders from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.  In one particular case, a team of volunteer immigration attorneys at the airport and my staff worked with my constituent’s family to relay information to my constituent while inflight to prepare her for going through Customs.  After 3 hours at Customs, she was finally cleared and is now happily at home and reunited with her family.

Obama’s Corrupt Uber Hires Obama’s Corrupt Attorney General After Obama’s Corrupt Campaign Manager is Caught Racketeering

Uber hires Eric Holder to lead sex harassment investigation

 

Uber has hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to lead an investigation into a former engineer’s explosive allegations of gender discrimination and sexual harassment, according to a company-wide email sent on Monday by CEO Travis Kalanick. This comes less than 24 hours after Uber board member Arianna Huffington said that she and new HR chief Liane Hornsey would lead an “independent” investigation, which some quickly noted was hardly independent.

Huffington and Hornsey both will still be involved, as will Holder’s law partner Tammy Albararran and Uber associate general counsel Angela Padilla. The group also will dig into Uber’s overall workplace culture as it pertains to diversity and inclusion. In that vein, Kalanick pledged that Uber in the coming months will release its first workforce diversity report, something it hasn’t done despite the example set by many of Silicon Valley’s other large technology companies.

Why Holder? He’s a respected outsider, although he has been publicly supportive of Uber in the past, such as arguing in favor of the company’s background check practices. Holder also was hired last summer by Airbnb to craft an anti-discrimination policy, so he has some Silicon Valley experience.

What’s next: Uber will be closely watched as it embarks on this investigation, and especially once the results are out. With a longstanding reputation for ignoring and excusing bad behavior, there will be a lot of pressure on the company to make bold moves if Holder finds the allegations to be truthful.

 

Below is Kalanick’s email

Team,

It’s been a tough 24 hours. I know the company is hurting, and understand everyone has been waiting for more information on where things stand and what actions we are going to take.

First, Eric Holder, former US Attorney General under President Obama, and Tammy Albarran — both partners at the leading law firm Covington & Burling– will conduct an independent review into the specific issues relating to the work place environment raised by Susan Fowler, as well as diversity and inclusion at Uber more broadly. Joining them will be Arianna Huffington, who sits on Uber’s board, Liane Hornsey, our recently hired Chief Human Resources Officer, and Angela Padilla, our Associate General Counsel. I expect them to conduct this review in short order.

Second, Arianna is flying out to join me and Liane at our all hands meeting tomorrow to discuss what’s happened and next steps. Arianna and Liane will also be doing smaller group and one-on-one listening sessions to get your feedback directly.

Third, there have been many questions about the gender diversity of Uber’s technology teams. If you look across our engineering, product management, and scientist roles, 15.1% of employees are women and this has not changed substantively in the last year. As points of reference, Facebook is at 17%, Google at 18% and Twitter is at 10%. Liane and I will be working to publish a broader diversity report for the company in the coming months.

I believe in creating a workplace where a deep sense of justice underpins everything we do. Every Uber employee should be proud of the culture we have and what we will build together over time. What is driving me through all this is a determination that we take what’s happened as an opportunity to heal wounds of the past and set a new standard for justice in the workplace. It is my number one priority that we come through this a better organization, where we live our values and fight for and support those who experience injustice.

Thanks,
Travis

BOOM! Georgia Judge REFUSES to Throw out CNN’s Effort to Dismiss a Fake News Court Case

BOOM! Georgia Judge REFUSES to Throw out CNN’s Effort to Dismiss a Fake News Court Case, Cites “a Series of False and Defamatory News Reports”

CNN is now on the verge of being proven a fake news source by Georgia courts! CNN attempted to get the case dismissed involving Davide Carbone, CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach who accused CNN of fabricating a story about his hospital.

 

 

 

Federal Judge Orinda Evans

Citing a “series of false and defamatory news reports” that insinuated St. Mary’s had an infant mortality rate that was 3 times higher than the national average while ignoring information that made the Medical Center look good. The libel lawsuit against CNN seeking $30 million in damages will continue onward thanks to federal district judge Orinda Evans.

 

Here is CNNs Fake news report about St. Mary’s they still have on their YouTube Page.

 

Carbone, who actually lost his job due to the fake news reports “has presented enough evidence at this early stage of the case to suggest that CNN ‘was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its reporting” according to The National Law Journal.

 

 

To make matters worse, judge Evans also found evidence of “actual malice” when insisting on reporting the Medical Center was under an official investigation, even after Florida’s Agency for Healthcare administration adamantly denied this was taking place.

 

 

Carbone’s lawyer describes the ruling as a major victory.

 

 

“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences,” he said. “Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit.”

 

“The ruling,” he added, “serves as a well-reasoned reminder that the media, its defense lawyers, and its lobbyists do not have a corner on the market of correct interpretation and application of the First Amendment.”
