  • Google Approves App For Muslims To Report People Who Commit Blasphemy

    12/09/2018 7:40:07 PM PST · by MNDude · 71 replies
    A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam. No, this is not a joke. The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

    I found this very hard to believe: A giant company, whose code of conduct used to be "Don't be evil,” is now working on a censorship and surveillance project for the Chinese government. The communist Chinese government.  The company is Google. Once the darling of technology. Now helping to create China's version of Big Brother. I'll explain. It’s called Project Dragonfly. It’s a search engine designed especially for China.  It would allow the authorities there to exercise strong censorship power. If, for example, someone searched for "human rights" or "protests,” the authorities would be alerted and no search results would be shown. That’s exactly...

    Facebook’s new algorithms for spotting political advertisements are inadvertently blocking ads for businesses that share the same names as famous politicians.Advertisers told Bloomberg that their ads mentioning the word “bush” have been flagged as political content, even if they are completely unrelated to politics. The company’s filters took down an ad from a Walmart in Beeville, Texas, advertising a sale on cans of Bush’s Beans. In another instance, Facebook took down an ad from a lawn-mowing service in South Dakota advertising bush trimming. Under Facebook's new rules for political ads, the ads are taken down until advertisers can verify themselves....
  • Boston police Commissioner William Gross stands firm against ACLU, Mayor Walsh punts

    Boston Herlad ^ | November 27, 2018 | Joe Dwinell, Brooks Sutherland
    Police Commissioner William G. Gross doubled down yesterday on his fiery criticism of an ACLU lawsuit over the city’s gang database, saying through a spokesman that safety of neighborhood residents remains his “top priority.” “Commissioner Gross is passionate about protecting the residents of Boston, and that will always be his first and foremost objective,” said department spokesman Sgt. Detective John Boyle. Gross slammed the ACLU in a private Facebook post Saturday, saying the “paper warriors” — by targeting BPD’s anti-gang measures with a lawsuit — are ignoring the “atrocities” by the ruthless MS-13 gang. Many of those gang members are...

    Which of this generation's biggest tech luminaries and innovators will ultimately be remembered for having the greatest lasting effect on the world? It's a tough question, especially when you consider the role that people like Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg play in our everyday lives. But, if you ask renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the answer is simple: Elon Musk. "As important as Steve Jobs was, no doubt about it — [and] you have to add him to Bill Gates, because they birthed the personal computing revolution kind of together — here's the difference: Elon Musk is trying...
  • Parliament seizes cache of Facebook internal papers

    Parliament has used its legal powers to seize internal Facebook documents in an extraordinary attempt to hold the US social media giant to account after chief executive Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly refused to answer MPs’ questions. The cache of documents is alleged to contain significant revelations about Facebook decisions on data and privacy controls that led to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is claimed they include confidential emails between senior executives, and correspondence with Zuckerberg. Damian Collins, the chair of the culture, media and sport select committee, invoked a rare parliamentary mechanism to compel the founder of a US software company,...

There are still powerful corporate cartels, criminals, terrorists and rogue nations out there with bad intentions and plans, and the means to carry them out. I’ve been warning you about the Google-Facebook nexus and how it literally threatens the future of free speech, free press and free elections.

    Natasha Lamb, a managing director at Arjuna Capital and a Facebook investor, attributes a lot of Facebook’s current problems to the amount of control over the company that Zuckerberg has consolidated. "The dominant position that Zuckerberg holds has not been helpful in steering the company over the last few years,” Lamb said. “The stock's gone down over $100 billion twice this year, and you can directly link that to these platform issues.” A New York Times story last week detailed Facebook’s early response to Russian election meddling attempts and its efforts to respond to a backlash in Washington, two of...

    George Soros avoided a loss of more than 17 million dollars by dumping shares of Facebook, Netflix and Goldman Sachs just before the big crash started happening. In other words, he made out like a bandit by selling at the peak of the market. Is he smarter than all the rest of us, did he have some inside information, or was he simply lucky? In recent months, tech stocks have lost approximately a trillion dollars in value, and many investors have been absolutely devastated. But not George Soros. According to the most recent filing with the SEC, Soros Fund Management...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg denied having anything to do with his company’s alleged commissioning of an opposition research company to discredit anti-Facebook activists by linking them to socialist billionaire George Soros. A report published by the New York Times on Wednesday claimed Facebook had hired Definers Public Affairs, an opposition research company led by Romney-Ryan 2012 and Jeb! Bush 2016 alumni, to discredit critics of Facebook, including conservative commentators Diamond and Silk. “I learned about this relationship when I read this New York Times piece yesterday,” Zuckerberg declared. “I have tremendous respect for George Soros.” “Someone on our comms team...

    WELL WE are at least 30 minutes into Monday morning so it's time for the first "Facebook did WHAT?" story of the week. According to a report in The Intercept, Facebook has been offering potential advertisers the chance to target their wares at groups who believe in a "White Genocide". Yes. Really. Just days after a mass-shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, the topic "white genocide consipracy theory" was used by the research team as a "detailed targeting" criterion to aim adverts at the 168,000 users who have interacted with the subject in some way.(continued at link)

    Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline (D) sharply criticized tech giant Facebook on Twitter on Wednesday evening, arguing that the social media company can't be trusted any longer to regulate itself. In a series of tweets, the lawmaker ripped into Facebook executives over a New York Times report detailing how the company used a Republican opposition research firm to link public detractors of the company to billionaire Democratic donor George Soros amid criticism of Facebook for its use by Russian operatives to influence Americans during the 2016 election. The report was based mainly on anonymous, insider accounts. "We’ve known for some...

    As challenges to Facebook mount from consumer organizations, politicians and journalists, the company's leadership remains convinced that its recent crises are primarily public relations problems, according to people at the company. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's chief executive officer, and Sheryl Sandberg, the company's chief operating officer, believe Facebook's negative image is a public relations problem that stems from a bungled press strategy and sensational media coverage, not a structural or philosophical shortcoming that requires a wholesale course correction. Zuckerberg and Sandberg have both publicly blamed the company's communications team for the decision to hire a conservative public relations firm that included...

    lleged Nazi collaborator George Soros is best understood by playing him backward. His organizations mean the exact opposite of their names. The Democracy Alliance is a plot to undermine democracy by a handful of wealthy oligarchs and special interests. His Open Society's goal is a closed society. Social media makes it too easy to have an open society. As opposed to a consolidated corporate media. So George Soros allegedly plotted to regulate Facebook until it was as controlled as the media. His war on Facebook, run by astroturfed activists is bearing fruit, with the backing of the media. But Soros...

    In 2015, Colorado School of Mines writing instructor Dr. Jon Leydens delivered a TED talk titled “engineering and social justice.” According to Leydens, in the mid-2000s students started asking him about how they could combine their “passion for social justice” with their “interest in engineering.” Leydens is part of a growing movement that seeks to incorporate social justice into engineering, in both the professional code and the curriculum. Far from being a marginal movement, on the fringes of the profession, it enjoys support at the highest levels. The movement began during the Vietnam War era when left-wing engineers founded the...

    A 39-year-old man from Aalborg must pay fines totaling 4,000 kroner for posting hate speech on his Facebook page in October 2017. The man was found to have written “macabre and threatening words against Muslims”, local media Nordjyske reports. […] He said that the words were intended as part of a poem and should be considered a cultural input. But Aalborg District Court found that the 39-year-old made threats of violence against Muslims, judging him guilty of breaching article 266b in Denmark’s criminal law code, also known as the “racism clause”. …
