Google, The Google Manifesto And The Progressive Agenda

by arandomsteve @

* Googles Handling of the #GoogleManifesto * Anyone and everyone that knows me knows I have been a very vocal advocate of Google products for a very long time. To call me a fanboi of their products has not been an unfair association. Whether it was Gmail, G Suite, or even Google Talk and Hangouts. I even put massive efforts into Googe+ for quite a long while until it became clear it was a DOA product.

I have also been vocal about the things they do I disagree with. I resented them killing off Google Reader. I thought they way they dealt with Google Talk's transition to Hangouts was bad, and I still think Google Allo and Duo are among the most stupid implementations of any recent product. They don't even have feature parity with Hangouts, and they're trying to be 2 products taking on a single product competition (iMessage, WhatsApp, Signal, even Facebook Messenger.) Recently things have been progressively getting worse there.

Youtube has been the forefront of a massive ideological battle between the Progressive (Regressive left) and pretty much anyone not sharing their views. And it has been increasingly clear as time has gone by that Google is falling further and further on the Progressive side of the debate, rather than remaining agnostic or even completely outside the argument at all. I won't go into details, but when Google brings in professional victims, misandrist apologists, and actively shuts down voices that don't share those same opinions (look at the recent banning of Jordan Peterson) then it becomes clear there is no objectivity.

However, this latest scuffle has genuinely been the icing on the cake. Everyone in the media and a lot of the tech commentators are running around screaming misogyny, hate, calling the document nothing but a massive assault on women and their place in the tech industry. Rather than actually discuss the points and refute his comments, they attack the author. Rather than discuss the sentiments expressed, they have literally shut down any discussion. Further, Google said it was "against the code of conduct" to express or even hold such *opinions* and have fired the author for it.

All the while, genuinely oblivious to the fact that this reaction has literally validated the point that was being made in the document. They have literally reacted in exactly the way that was being pointed out in the document as being stiffling and contributing to what can only be described as an echo chamber of ideas. I have actually read the PDF of the so called #googlemanifesto and have seen quite a few scientists, biologists, and psychologists, all agree that the sentiments expressed in the document are legitimate.

The primary point of the document is that this push for "diversity" is well intentioned, but is achieving the exact wrong results. Rather than increasing the quality of people being accepted for positions, they're reducing the requirements for a select group in order to fill some diversity quota. This doesn't ensure that those people in those positions are the best for the role, but are instead merely there because they ticked a box that fills a quota. And as much as I hate to say it, the reaction of Google, the tech media, the mainstream media, and the progressives in general, bothers me enough that I have started moving away from using Google products.

I already run my own Nextcloud, but rather than sync back to Google services, I'm going to go the other direction. Rather than use Gmail, I'm going to run a local instance of RoundCube instead. When they killed Google Reader, I had to replace that, so I am treating this as the same sort of project. Products I can replace locally, I will be replacing with locally hosted alternatives.

There was a time where I could look past the ideological issues. I have been ignoring the fight on Youtube because it wasn't something that directly affected me. I was ignoring the very clear bias in search results and news results because I have learned how to think for myself. But when Google starts deliberately misrepresenting the views of people and using their views as reason to silence them (or fire them in this case,) then I can't pretend I agree with that.

It doesn't matter whether I agree with him or not, the fact that he was obviously let go for voicing his opinion, an opinion that is clearly against the generic opinion of Googler as a group, completely rubs me the wrong way.

What really bothers me, and the absolute irony of the whole situation, is that Google's actions, and the reactions of the mainstream and tech media, the reactions of the progressives online, actually validate what is said in the document. Rather than openly discuss the statements and ideas within the document, they are actively shutting discussion down with strawman and ad hominem attacks against the author and anyone that doesn't immediately agree with their view of the document. And for me, that's dangerous. I don't care how good the product is, when the


Google Now Has Access To Millions Of Patient's Health Records

A controversial deal between tech giant Google and the National Health Service (NHS) will allow artificial intelligence units access to 1.6 million confidential medical records. Since 2014, Google has partnered with several scientists in an attempt to understand human health, but a new report reveals the data gathering goes far beyond what was originally anticipated - well now there's a surprise.

The unhealthily close relationship beteen Google and the US government has been known for a while, but despite having been caught in their incesteous coupling, the parent and child relationship seems to be getting more intense. The latest revelation from the Hillary Clinton emails shows how Google was involved in the bid to overthrow Assad in Syria

Facebook begins Europe-wide censorship campaign against free speech.

What The controllers have In Store For Your Future

If you thought the book Nineteen Eighty-four by George Orwell was something else—even possibly off the wall when written—wait until you learn what’s planned for us by the year 2025! George Orwell, in retrospect, seems to have been able to tap into some sort of future-time-machine or a “worm hole” in physics—what’s known as an “Einstein-Rosen bridge,” because much of what he wrote about has come to realization.

Google: Benefactor Of Mankind Or Evil Empire (or buch of idiotic nerds who got lucky?)

They way Google has come to dominate the internet just as the internet has come to dominate our lives can't all be down to good luck and careful planning can it? As this page develops you will see how sinister forces guided Google to their current position.

How Google Destroyed the Internet

The idea of the internet was that it would be a communications tool that freed information by making all public domain documents, libraries and archives accessible for everyone. Unfortunately the corporate monopoly men of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and political control freaks had other ideas. They also understood the technolgy while the hippies and liberals ignored professionals warnings that internet systems would become a perfect toool of censorship.

Google a step closer to developing machines with human-like intelligence

Computers will have developed “common sense” within a decade and we could be counting them among our friends not long afterwards, one of the world’s leading AI scientists has predicted. Professor Geoff Hinton, who was hired by Google two years ago to help develop intelligent operating systems, said that the company is on the brink of developing algorithms with the capacity for logic, natural conversation and even flirtation.

Who Runs America? US Federal Trade Commission Takes Orders From Google

Barak Obama runs America surely, you might well be thinking. We would argue that no US President since Eisenhower has truly run the USA. But the latest revelation of how cosy the Obama Administration has become with corporate business, to the extent that government departments are taking instruction from Google will shock even the most cynical Americans

Google Meets White House Officials Every Week, Why?

We have been very suspicious for ten years of the way Google with such apparent ease achieved a dominant position in web search. How did it happen, did Google do something evil, did they invoke the powers of darkness in their meteoric rise. Or were there even darker forces at work, powering Google to a position in which their internet technologies could dominate global information flows? Here's something cynics should read.

EU taking on Google - Well One German Publisher Is

Those New World Order fanatics at The Guardian, bless them, seldom miss a trick when it comes to promoting the single European Superstate and the globalist agenda. Their latest misrepresentation is to try and make us feel the European Union is somehow protecting our freedoms even as the bureau rats of Brussels are taking them away.

It has been revealed that Facebook has been collaborating with the US government and creepier fringes of the academic community in carrying out experiments to manipulate users emotions. "Facebook users have reacted angrily to a "creepy" experiment carried out by the social network and two American universities to manipulate their emotions."

Pissed Off With Government/Microsoft/Google Online Spying? Be Completely Anonymous Online
Not so long ago our biggest worry online was malware, virus software, trojans and worms plagued the internet cost many people a lot of time and worry. Since about a year ago everything has changed, protecting our digital privacy is the issue and the enemy is no longer spotty little nerds hunched over computers in dimly lit basements, but governments and major technology corporations.

Google Car Driverless Because No Sane Person Would Be Seen Dead In One

A few years ago Google boss Eric Schmidt said the company's aim was to get as close to creepy as they could without crossing the line. Well they had crossed the line long before he said that. The latest Google wirdness is the much hyped driverless car. It looks as if it was designed by a five year old. On the other hand it might be the ideal car for paedophiles who want to go cruising for jailbait.

Reasons To keep Google Away From your Credit Card Information

I did not use Gmail a lot because although the mail got through, I started to be bombarded with targeted ads related to keywords used in my mail exchanges (they weren't keywords as far as I was concerned, just conversation. That did not worry me much but the idea that Google were sharing my email content with the bastards throwing these ads at me did.

Don't be Evil, Google Will Do It For You

Google have abandoned their "Don't Be Evil motto. Good thing really, they are becoming more evil every day. The latest plans to integrate our brains with their servers may seem like a science fiction freaks wet dream, but these creepy nerds are serious ...

Trump Administration Issues Report Concluding That Climate Change Is Real And Man-Made

The Trump Administration is copping a lot of flak over allowing the release of a federal climate report begun under President Barack Obama which concludes that humans are the primary driver of climate change, causing higher temperatures, sea level rise, agriculture problems and more. You will note that nobody has conclusively proved any of these are taking place to an extent that had suggested imminent danger to humanity. In fact all the doom mongering predictions made so far by climate alarmists have proved to be spectacularly wrong.

Having said that, we have to add that in our opinion there was nothing else The White House could do other than release the report. To have blocked its publication would have violatedfree speech laws and had the administration disowned it, the research team (all scientists on the government payroll from before warmageddonist in chief Obama lft office,) would have used that to attack Trump.

The report - whose executive summary alone is 34 pages - found the Earth is undergoing its warmest period "in the history of modern civilization," fueled primarily by rising levels of carbon dioxide. This is a reiteration of a long discredited lie, repeating the falsehood of Prof. Michael Mann's "Hockey Stick graph, which ignored data from the medieval warn period in order to create the impression that tempertures over a few years in the 1990s were unprecedented in the human era. This latst report was released by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, which is mandated by Congress to report every four years on the state of climate change, and is know to be a supporter of Dr. Mann's scaremongering.

The massive study - which is the first volume of the Fourth National Climate Assessment, was years in the making and involved contributions from more than a dozen federal agencies - is meant to be an authoritative assessment of the current state of climate change science.

However, what has caught pundits by surprise, is that many of the report’s conclusions directly contradict the Trump administration’s publicly held positions on climate change, thus we may assume that its conclusiona are, at least in part, politically motivated.

Case in point: Trump officials like EPA chief Scott Pruitt and Energy Secretary Rick Perry have said they can’t be sure whether human-caused greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide are the primary cause of climate change. And yet the Climate Assessment plainly states that is the case. "This assessment concludes, based on extensive evidence, that it is extremely likely that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century,” it says. “For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence."

"There is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence?"

How about the millions of years of archeological evidence? How about the ice core samples showing more CO2 in the atmosphere with colder temperatures than today? How about the the fact that the oldest ice core sample only dates back 2.7M years. 2.7M years ago there was zero ice on the planet. Therfore it is conclusive that the earth naturally warms and cools. And where is the evidence that determines how much of the current carbon dioxide is from naturally occuring sources such as under sea volcanic vents vs man made combustion of oil and natural gas.

The report's authors have stolen Discredited Dr. Mann's trick of simply ignoring any data that contradicted his initial assumptions. We should explain here that Mann initiated a number of defamation law suits against his critics but has for years been employing legal jiggery pokery to avoid producing his researc data and disprove what his critics said about him. The situation is now that he is trying to stave off demands for payment of his own and his accusers court costs, having failed to prove his case.

There are two issues with the National Climate Assessment - pollution and climate change - and they have little to do with each other. It is a fact however, that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which the climate change alarmists believe is the only significant pollutant is not in fact a pollutant but trace atmospheric gas essential to the contination of life. No one denies that pollution is driven by human activity and is harmful to both health, property and the environment in general and should be curtailed. We can all agree that polluters are trespassers, but Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant.

Climate change. comprised of warming and cooling, has been around as long as the earth has had a climate and is driven by solar activity and the molten matter beneath the earth's crust. To attribute climate change to human carbon dioxide generating activity when it is known beyond doubt that far more spectacular chimate shifts took place before the human era is to introduce dangerous speculation based on computer model projectionswhich purport to predict what will happen decades into the future. This reliance on purely speculative data has led to the the ridiculous claims that "the science is settled" calls for global taxation and central planning powers to curb CO2 emissions.

The whole fraudulent exercise is a scheme to shift even more power and control to governments and more wealth to corporate business.

Ernst Georg Beck cataloged REAL-time CO2 measurements going back 200 years and PROVED with those measurements that "global warming" is a LIE. He PROVED that in periods of increased industrial output (and hence more CO2 output), the weather got colder, not warmer. The FACT that CO2 levels are driven by temperature changes and do not CAUSE temperature changes is an accepted scientific fact. The planet warms first, and 800 to 1000 years later, CO2 levels rise.

Scientific studies conducted 100 years ago proved CO2 was ineffectual as a greenhouse gas because its effect is duplicated by Water Vapour which exists at far higher concentrations in the upper atmosphere. The AVERAGE climate for the planet is MUCH warmer and MUCH wetter than it is now. The climate we are experiencing in this era is COLDER and DRIER than Earth's average climate. The AVERAGE CO2 level for about the last 500 MILLION years has been 1600 ppm, FOUR TIMES the present level. NOT by coincidence, 1600 PPM is OPTIMUM for plant life and hence ANIMAL life and OUR life.

We have too long allowed ourselves to be manipulated by fear into allowing the state's self-serving "experts" into frightening us into the never ending wars on drugs and terrorism for the benefit of the industries profiting from these unwinnable wars. The war on climate change - a war on what the earth has been doing for eons - will be a forever war justifying the micro management by a vast, bureaucracy of all human activity. Welcome to the Soviet Union on steroids! If the "science is settled" crowd is wrong and the earth's climate keeps changing, will they voluntarily give up their unlimited taxing and planning powers? Nope. As always central planning failures lead to demands for more money and power. Is this what we want?

Weather Channel Founder Slams Global Warming Fraud

The climate change lobby have been on the back foot for a long time as eminent scientists queued to be next to point out that when real world observations repeatedly contradict data produced by mathematical models run on university computer systems, any credible research team would take a long critical look at their models rather than adjusting the empirical data so it gives the required answer.

Green Energy Poverty Week
As the climate science research grant phishers, brainwashed socialist idiots, tree hugging, rope sandal wearing weirdie-beardies, and green energy subsidy troughers prepare to celebrate Earch day, supporters of the common sense lobby named the week following Earth day as Green Energy Poverty Week to show respect for those plunged into fuel poverty by green energy taxes levied to fund the wind farm and solar energy subsidy millionaires.

Global Temperature Record Is A Smoking Gun Of Collusion And Fraud In Climate Science

Are the latest leaked documents from the Global Warming conspiracy published by Wikileaks the smoking gun the carbon dioxide driven climate change sceptics have been waiting for? The ceretainly demonstrate beyond not just reasonable doubt but any doubt at all that the research grant phising climate scientists deliberately changed data so the algorithms would give the answer they wanted.

If global warming is real, then why does the NOAA's own data show no warming for 58 years?

Suddenly ‘Global warming' is a seriously hot topic again; after a period in which many prominent scientists who not long ago would have been reluctant to point of the flawed science and fraudulent statistics behind the scam, for fear of having their careers and reputations trashed by 'The Science Inquisition', now almost every day there’s a new report claiming that humans are to blame for climate change

Paris Climate conference: Scientists Debunk Global Warming Scaremongering

As national leaders and self interested science whore collaborated to impose of the world a United Nations “climate regime” based on the vile and authoritarian Agenda 21 agreement, at the COP21 global-warming summit, a group of internationally respected scientists and environmentalists from various fields presented research at a separate conference in Paris that ridiculed the climate change hysteria.

German Scientist Confims Climate Change Ia A Politically Motivated Scam

Even as the inbred idiot Prince Charles was babbling to a hand picked audience about the skid marks in his underpants being caused by Climate Change, a somewhat more scientifically literate person, Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert, a retired geologist and data computation expert, has confirmed what those of us dubbed 'climate deniers' have been telling you for years ...

The real problem here is that, driven by the hysterical warnings of self interested pseudo-scientists, politicians have set unachievable targets for reducing emissions while demanding that national economies keep growing.

Climate Change: Physicist Asks Is a Deadly Ice Age on the Horizon?

The last ice age ended approximately 12,000 years ago, and since then we’ve been enjoying a pleasantly warm “interglacial period.” But given that an interglacial may last only 12,000 years, we’re confronted with a scary prospect: Another ice age may be nigh.

America and UK Lead the World in Climate Scepticism
Several times now it has looked as if the climate chance scare was over as the enthusiasm of climate scitentists for changing real world data to fit in with the predictions of their mathematical models has been exposed. But as the scare was never about the environment, but was a scam to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries, the politicians are throwing their propaganda budgets behind it again.

Global Warming Is Not Causing Any Polar Ice Cap Meltdown Says NASA
Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

Polar Temperature Data ‘Proving’ Climate Change Nothing More than a Guess

Dr Benny Peiser who heads up the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), has said temperature readings from the Arctic and Antarctic used to estimate the effects of global warming are nothing more than guesswork. GWPF last month announced its intention to carry out a wide-ranging review of the data underpinning claims on global warming.

Punish Climate Change Liars" Demands Climate Change Liar

Over the years my scepticism about global warming and attempts to initiate intellgent discussion of the dodgy science based on mathematical models that forms the basis of the Warmageddonist case, versus much less alarming projections based on data from real world observations haveearned me accusations of being a child murderer. Not only that, some of the lefties who support climate fascism have demanded the death penalty for people who disagree with them. And yet they think it unfair to punish certain child rapists and murderers. Hypocrites.

Will New German Study End Global Warming Hysteria?
Although evidence that the global warming scare has been a massive scam in which exponents of various typoes of dodgy science lumped together under the label of climate science, in order to justify massive taxes on everything (because everything in the modern economy involves oil or electricity at some stage) and create a $1trillion per year market for Inventment Bankers and Dr. Evil types such as Al Gore could steal more money from ordinary people, politicians, media contributors and of course science academics have stuck to the narrative.
