  • (vanity) Get a second phone for business only?

    I have a full-time job (which is now fully remote, yay) and am looking for more remote part-time work. What people are now calling "overemployed."Question: it seems to me that it's best to have a second phone line for business -- both for security/privacy purposes and just to keep personal and work lives separate. Do others of you do the same? I've looked into dual SIM, Tracfone, Mint Mobile, etc. Virtual phones (Google Voice) have their place but can't be used in every situation (i.e., some places/services will not accept a virtual phone for verification and apparently are able to...

    Editor’s Note: If you had asked me yesterday if artificial intelligence could write an article in the style of a popular columnist and few if anyone could tell the difference, I would have said we’re probably a few years away from that dystopian circumstance. I would have been wrong. The article below by Frank Miele of Real Clear Politics is partially written by ChatGPT. Can you tell the man from the machine? The Brave New World of Artificial Intelligence As a journalist and commentator, I have closely followed the development of OpenAI, the artificial intelligence research lab founded by Elon...

    Somewhere along the line, someone noticed that in software development, a few people are self-taught, and then suddenly they (erroneously) correlated software development with easy money. The truth is that it isn’t that easy.I’m not going to suggest that the field is overall something super difficult like Physical Chemistry, but it’s also not trivial to learn like my first job at McDonald’s. Though to be honest, getting those cone swirls right was for sure a pride point! I often see questions like, “how can I teach myself to code and have a full-time programmer job in 6 months.” I imagine...

    The FBI invited the media for maximum public exposure when they searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence for classified documents last year, however news has just emerged that the bureau searched Biden’s former office for classified documents in November – and decided to keep the search a secret from the American people. Investigators from the FBI searched the office that Biden previously used at a DC think tank – days after his own lawyer identified classified material there, it was revealed Tuesday. The White House and the Justice Department did not disclose the search, which was reported by CBS News, despite the...
  • Twitter, Media, And Democrats Are All Guilty In The Hamilton 68 Scandal

    Federalist ^ | FEBRUARY 01, 2023 | BY: MARGOT CLEVELAND
    Besides Hamilton 68, three groups deserve condemnation for peddling the Russian-bots hoax: the media, corrupt politicians, and Twitter. The latest chapter of “The Twitter Files” broke on Friday, with the release of internal communications that provided a takedown of Hamilton 68, which wrongly purported to expose Russian disinformation on social media. The details released, however, prove equally devasting to the corrupt media, dishonest Democrats, and Twitter itself. Independent journalist Matt Taibbi’s most recent exposé provided more details of the internal angst at Twitter caused by Hamilton 68, which Taibbi described as “a computerized ‘dashboard’ designed to be used by reporters...

  • Fascist Google Runs Cover for Pfizer After Project Veritas Bombshell Video

    Liberty Daily ^ | By J.D. Rucker • Jan. 27, 2023
    Google hates the truth. They always have. They’re in the business of narrative-building and the narrative they’re building regarding the recent Project Veritas bombshell is a lie: “Nothing to see here.” Here’s what Project Veritas noticed on Thursday: The results have since been “fixed,” quite literally. Most of the top listings for the phrase, “pfizer project veritas” show “fact check” websites claiming the video is “unverified” or corporate media news outlets calling the incident “alleged.” Others published a story, then retracted it later. In other words, they’re running the Hunter Biden laptop play on this one. It wouldn’t be shocking...

    PICS AT LINK..................... Kathy Chung, Biden’s executive assistant for Joe Biden when he was vice president, was a close associate of Hunter Biden who gave him what a retired top general called a “treasure trove” of intelligence information that was ultimately leaked from his infamous laptop. Hunter Biden was so close to the “mystery woman,” whose profile images have been widely scrubbed from the Internet, that he recommended Chung to work for his father in the vice president’s office while she was working for former Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) in 2012. While Chung was in the vice president’s office, she...

    A reporter indicated that he may sue Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., after internal documents at Twitter revealed the Democrat tried to get him banned from the platform. Elon Musk and journalist Matt Taibbi’s "Twitter Files" entry last week revealed that Schiff lobbied Twitter to suspend journalist Paul Sperry from the social media site in November 2020. Sperry, a senior reporter for RealClearInvestigations.com and a New York Post columnist, told Fox's Brian Kilmeade that he was targeted by Schiff because of his reporting on Democrat sources in President Donald Trump's first impeachment trial. "So, Schiff didn't like the fact I outed...

    I couldn't be happier today after a cute musical dog graced my screen. While scrolling through my Twitter homepage, I came across an adorable video of this talented doggo that warmed my heart with his piano playing and drumming skills. During a musical performance, you can't see a pianist playing piano and a drum at the same time. However, this doggo seems to have broken the record in a viral video that shows him playing piano with his hands and using his tail to play the drum.

    Twitter staff relented to a pressure campaign spearheaded by a Democratic lawmaker in the fall of 2017, changing its advertising policy to allow for a closer relationship with U.S. intelligence agencies, according to internal documents published Tuesday by independent journalist Matt Taibbi. Twitter executives did not believe that there was significant activity by Russian election interference groups on the platform as of Sept. 6, 2017, and had internally decided to direct concerned reporters to Facebook, who they believed to be facing the brunt of congressional scrutiny, according to Taibbi. However, Twitter faced renewed pressure after Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of...
