    A Lithuanian man pleaded guilty last week to bilking Google and Facebook out of more than $100 million in an elaborate scheme involving a fake company, fake emails and fake invoices. In an indictment unsealed by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York last week, the Department of Justice alleged that Evaldas Rimasauskas and other unnamed co-conspirators impersonated the Taiwan-based hardware manufacturer, Quanta Computer — with which both tech companies do business — by setting up a company in Latvia with the same name. Using myriad forged invoices, contracts, letters, corporate stamps, and general confusion created by...

    Facebook said Thursday that it stored millions of its users' passwords in plain text for years. The acknowledgement from the social media giant came after a security researcher posted about the issue online. "Security rule 101 dictates that under no circumstances passwords should be stored in plain text, and at all times must be encrypted," said cybersecurity expert Andrei Barysevich of Recorded Future. "There is no valid reason why anyone in an organization, especially the size of Facebook, needs to have access to users' passwords in plain text." Facebook said there is no evidence its employees abused access to this...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned Wednesday that unless President Donald Trump clamps down on the growing censorship of conservative voices by tech giants such as Google and Twitter, he won’t be reelected in 2020. Why? Because without conservative voices, nobody will know the truth anymore. The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host posited the ominous prediction while speaking with renowned attorney and RNC committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon about Google’s willingness to silence dissidents both here in the United States and abroad.

    Noah Millman wrote a marvelously honest piece for "The Week" last week about the pay-to-play college admissions scandal. He acknowledges what many have known for a long time: First, that admission to the most elite schools is not purely based upon merit. Second, that education as good as -- and often better than -- that at the Ivies and other top-tier institutions can be obtained elsewhere. What parents are really after, Millman says, is status. This has become more important than the education itself, or even connections, which the children of these grasping, bribing parents frankly already have. Millman makes...

    Key Democratic operatives and private investigators who tried to derail Donald Trump’s campaign by claiming he was a tool of the Kremlin have rebooted their operation since his election with a multimillion-dollar stealth campaign to persuade major media outlets and lawmakers that the president should be impeached. The effort has successfully placed a series of questionable stories alleging secret back channels and meetings between Trump associates and Russian spies, while influencing related investigations and reports from Congress. The operation’s nerve center is a Washington-based nonprofit called The Democracy Integrity Project, or TDIP. Among other activities, it pumps out daily “research”...

    Social media companies have been told to “clean up their platforms” or be prepared to face the “force of the law” by Home Secretary Sajid Javid. Writing in the Daily Express, Mr Javid said: “Tech companies must do more to stop his messages being broadcast.” Despite the original video being taken down, it was quickly replicated and shared widely on other platforms, including YouTube and Twitter. Mr Javid urged people to stop viewing and sharing the “sick material” online, adding: “It is wrong and it is illegal.

    If any of you have ever visited some of the president's tweets, you know that at the K brothers are always always always in top, then to be followed by a bunch of liberal Trump haters. ALWAYS. Not an accident. Twitter obviously controls this all on purpose. Now, for the first time, there are about 10 patriot posts on top. Its interesting, because I have seen these posts get removed from the top by some trump hater named Ryan Hill. But, the same patriot posts have now somehow got back on top and pushed those haters back down. Has POTUS...

Tech Tyranny!!” Moore explained that his first screenshot was taken a few days earlier, while the second was taken on Saturday morning. Both used the search terms “who are the founders of Greenpeace?” The Daily Caller was able to independently verify on Sunday that a search entering that query returned as Moore claimed, without his photo.

Ocasio-Cortez announced a plan in February that would kill off half the US population and destroy the economy in less than ten years. Fellow leftists praised the insanity from the freshman Democrat. Dr. Moore called out the nutcase. **SNIP** That was too much for Google and Greenpeace. The far left tech giant deleted Dr. Moore form the Greenpeace list of founders today.

    New Zealand authorities have reminded citizens that they face up to 10 years in prison for “knowingly” possessing a copy of the New Zealand mosque shooting video – and up to 14 years in prison for sharing it. Corporations (such as web hosts) face an additional $200,000 ($137,000 US) fine under the same law. Terrorist Brenton Tarrant used Facebook Live to broadcast the first 17 minutes of his attack on the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand at approximately 1:40 p.m. on Friday – the first of two mosque attacks which left 50 dead and 50 injured. .
