When Progressives Accuse Conservatives and Libertarians of Wanting To Destroy The Planet

I often see left wing activists, eco – loons and ‘progressives’ around the web claiming that their critics, people who are sceptical of the ‘science’ that predicts Warmageddon any day now accuse anyone who challenges them or points out the economic and social lunacy of demanding we stop using carbon based fuels immediately of wanting to destroy the planet.
One has to wonder why followers of the cult of Saint Greta Thunberg think destroying the economy of the civilized world, throwing billions of people out of work and causing millions to die of starvation would be preferable to seeing a few thousand people a year die of the effects of pollution were the scare stories about Carbon Dioxide true. (They’re not, and if you are not aware of why they are not, your scioentifioc education is sadly lacking.

Another assertion that crops up time and again is that climate change sceptics somehow believe CO2 pollution does not affect them but only affects poor people. Firstly, CO2 is not a polutant. Secondly, while pollution is a serious problem in some places  it doesn’t affect sceptics as badly as it affects poorer people who vote Labour in Britain, Democrat in the USA, and socialist or leftist parties around the world – and if the left understood more clearly why this is so, they could be many times more effective at implementing the right environmental policies to deal with the problems.

Let me show you what I mean with the help of an American AGW sceptic site . Here’s a photo of Los Angeles on a clear day from 1990.

Smog like that used to be a huge problem, and that smog is not carbon dioxide (which is a colourless gas,) but probably a high concentration of nitrous oxide along with sulphates and other noxious gases. But today, Los Angeles looks like this:

The difference between those two photos is obvious. A lot of environmental policy changes were needed to get from point A to point B, and they worked. Mission accomplished.

Now, lets compare that to a photo of Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 1990:

And here’s Chattanooga today:

Other than 28 years worth of advances in camera technology, Chattanooga hasn’t changed much. In fact Chattanooga was considered one of the cleanest cities in America in 1990, and still is today. The environmental policies that were absolutely necessary in Los Angeles weren’t needed at all in Chattanooga.

One of the problems the left have is that their collectivist mindset demands one-size-fits-all solutions because they want everybody to be the same. However if you ask any fashion conscious woman how well do one size fits all solutions work in clothing, the answer will probably be too profane for a public forum.

One of the reasons socialism always fails is that for all their screeching to the contrary, socialists cannot abide diversity either at local or national national level. Thus we are seeing theEuropean Union falling apart as a result of its attempts to politically and financially integrate all its diverse member states (from industrial power house Germany, population 85 million,) to the island nation of Malta (population 350,000) with its fishing and tourism based economy.And we are seeing Britain (now out of the EU,) and other member states torn apart as divisions, between north and south, east and west, city and rural communities go unaddressed because the broad left, the neo – liberal, globalist consensus imposes national and global policies to problems that require local solutions.

The result of trying to pass national legislation to solve local problems is that you’re going to get a lot of push back from people who don’t have the problem you have. Moreover, they don’t want to spend money solving a problem they don’t have.

If I had, now how does the song go?, “A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound,” for every time   I’ve read ridiculous statements like “Conservatives hate clean air and water” in response to their opposition to proposed environmental legislation that would shut down entire industries, I would perhaps have accumulated enough to take a holiday in some unspoiled island paradise in The Caribbean – maybe. But what for.There’s plenty of unspoiled countryside around where I live in north Lancashire and the air is clean. Yet less than 50 miles away away in Manchester,  Liverpool or Leeds the usual big city pollution problems apply

How can the left reasonably expect someone who can look outside and sees a lot of green, clean air, clean water, and a sustainably-developed/ undeveloped/unspoiled/unpolluted woodland, hillsides and valleys, fast  flowing streams in all directions that they should pay more in taxes to fix problems that in most places don’t need fixing?And how incompetent would a government have to be to spend shitloads of taxpayers money in order to provide a nationwide solution to a problem that only exists in a few localities.

How can you reasonably expect someone who has zero need for more regulations, more constraints on their freedom,  which would be completely unnecessary where they live, to be happy to pay the extra taxes and accept the curtailment of personal liberty?

Think it through. If a footballer breaks a leg during a game you don’t sent the whole team to hospital to have the broken bone set in a cast. If a kid eats something rotten and gets a gut infection you don’t give the whole school antibiotics.

The way left wing thinking works is like the guy with the shittiest yard in the street telling everyone else they should be doing more to keep the neighborhood nice.

In reality, most of the country, my country, your country, any country, is perfectly fine from an environmental impact standpoint. You wouldn’t pay someone to mow your lawn if your lawn didn’t need to be mowed. You wouldn’t pay a mechanic to fix your car if it wasn’t broken. And you wouldn’t be happy if government regulators came and said “Listen, we’re going to raise your taxes because people with overgrown lawns and inoperable cars can’t be arsed sorting their problems out.”

So, on the same token, why should communities who already do a good job taking care of the environment where they live be taxed and burdened with regulations to solve a problem they don’t have?

If the left understood this and focused environmental policy at the state and local levels, instead of the national and global, they would not be facing collapse here, in the USA, Europe etc. Why am I writing advice for the left when I am a libertarian you might well ask. It’s because I know I’m safe, the left never learn because they can never accept they are wrong. They can never admit those who oppose them might have a better understanding of a problem. Even now, after suffering a crushing defeat in the General Election two months ago, the UK Labour Party cannot acknowledge that working class voters abandoned then because they are perceived as out of touch with ordinary people, obsessed with minority issues like gay and trans rights, with pandering to Islamic extremists and with exporting more British jobs to China, India and other emerging economies in pursuit of unrealistic and self destructive targets for reducing CO2 emissions.

Conservatives and libertarians don’t hate clean air, green spaces or a healthy environment, but they are realists. Instead of trying to change the climate and atmosphere of the whole planet they focus on what they can change. We can save the environment and civilisation if we do it little by little.

Illiberal Undemocrats Now Hate Catholics As Well As White People, Britain & Heterosexuals

authored by Paul Embery for Unherd

A political scandal broke earlier this week — though if you blinked you’d have missed it. Not so long ago, the story would have commanded column inches across the national press and extensive comment over the airwaves. Instead, however, there was next to nothing. Quite simply, the reason the story passed by virtually unnoticed is that our society has changed so fundamentally, and so quickly, that scandals of this type are just not considered major news anymore.

In a nutshell, the Liberal Democrats deselected an election candidate on the grounds that he is an orthodox Roman Catholic. You read that right. Rob Flello (right), the Lib Dem candidate for Stoke-on-Trent South — a constituency he represented as a Labour MP for twelve years before defecting — was suddenly dropped after party bigwigs became aware of his traditional views on same-sex marriage and abortion — views that happen to be entirely consistent with mainstream Catholic thought.

As a Labour MP, Flello voted according to the doctrines of his faith on both these issues. Upon discovering the fact, the Lib Dems sacked him and said in a statement:

We do our best to screen candidates in our approval process. In this case it only really became clear over the past few hours how greatly his values diverge from ours.

– Liberal Democrats

Anyone would think Flello had been unmasked as a secret member of the National Front.

Former Scania CEO Warns Sweden Heading For Civil War As Migrants Set Up State-Within-A-State


SOCOs inspect the scene of one of Stockholm’s recent explosions

Sweden is heading towards civil war due to uncontrolled mass immigration.The former CEO of truck maker Scania has warned that unless mass immigration is curbed and the far left government stops pussyfooting around the nation’s migrant related problems, Sweden could be in a state of civil war within a few years and lawless elements in migrant communities become more daring in showing their contempt for Swedish law and values and for the country’s people.

In an interview with Swebbtv, businessman Leif Östling argued that the rapid influx of new migrants from parts of the world where backward, patriarchal, theocratic cultures are the norm and women often have lower status than animals, and who have not attempted or even shown any interest in trying to integrate into Swedish society is creating violent unrest as increasingly unhappy Swedes turn to nationalist and far – right extremist movements in the hope that somebody can redress the balance after years of government’s favouring immigrants over ethnic Swedes.

“We’ve taken in far too many people from outside. And those who come from the Middle East and Africa live in a society that we left almost a hundred years ago,” Ostling said.

As well as ‘no go zones’ for police and other emergency services sprining up in many Swedish towns and cities, as rival gangs from various ethnic groups vie for control of the drug, contraband and sex trades. Gun fights and grenade attacks have rocketed in many cities, notably Gothenborg and Malmo, with much of the unrest being linked to migrant gangs. Sexual assaults and violent crime is also on the rise throughout Sweden.

Grenade attacks and fatal shootings in Sweden are now described as a “national emergency” according to a report. Not long ago reports of migrant related crime problems including gang wars, organised crime, violence and sex crimes derided as a a ‘far right’ conspiracy theory by mainstream media media, but now there is deathly silence from the politically correct, liberal and ‘progressive’ publications that dominate western media as denials become increasingly incredible.

Stockholm was shaken by three explosions in a single night last week, but these criminal outrages did not even make the front pages or main news bulletin. With violence rising, the country’s government seems more concerned with downplaying the problem and trying to maintain its image as a tolerant, liberal, socialist utopia rather than admitting there are problems and dealing with them.

Three explosions in one night ought to be front page news in any first-world national capital. But when Stockholm reverberated to the multiple blasts in the same night, national broadcaster SVT’s nightly main news broadcast made no mention of the incidents, relegating the news to its online news page instead. One of the targets, a Syriac Christian church, had already been bombed twice in the past year.

In Sweden, such terrorism is no longer news, so long as they are suspected to be the work of migrant groups that are not so much above suspicion as above the law. In 2018 there were 162 bombings reported to police, and 93 reported in the first five months of this year. The level of attacks is “extreme in a country that is not at war,” Crime Commissioner Gunnar Appelgren told SVT last year.

Östling underscored problems with integration by highlighting his own experience running Scania, where around 90 out of a hundred Somali migrants hired to work for the company were fired or left because they were unable to arrive on time or work in teams. Other Swedish companies have experienced problems with migrant workers refusing to work with women or non – Muslims, insisting on stopping production lines for prayers or refusing to lean Swedish. And those are the small minority of new migrants that condescend to work.

Östling believes the assimilation process needed before migrants are ready to live as members of Swedish society might take a generation to accomplish. The businessman said he hoped that the country’s problems could be fixed within 10 years, otherwise civil war could ensue, necessitating that the military be called out to deal with violent unrest in migrant areas. The far left socialist government’s refusal to abandon it’s ‘open doors’ immigration policy suggests the problem can only get worse over the next ten years.

In an article entitled It’s Time for Sweden to Admit Explosions Are a National Emergency, Quillette’s Paulina Neuding goes into detail;

“Sweden has experienced a sharp rise in explosions in recent years, predominantly related to conflicts between warring criminal gangs. The use of explosives in the Nordic country is now at a level that is unique in the world for a state not at war, according to police. In response, the government issued a first-ever ”amnesty for explosives” in the fall of 2018, allowing people in possession of such weapons to hand them over to police with immunity. But this didn’t stem the tide: some 50 explosions were reported in the first three months of 2019 alone—an average of more than one every other day and an increase over the same period in 2018, a year that saw a record number of more than three blasts per week.”

Deadly shootings in Sweden have also risen by a factor of 10 in one generation, exacerbated by witness intimidation and “a code of silence in the country’s socio-economically weak immigrant areas,” according to Neuding.

Hate is 80% of Left Wing Politics

Since my days as a candidate for the old Liberal Party in local and county council elections I have been struck by the hatred and loathing shown by candidates of left wing parties for anyone who opposes them. This ‘politics of hate’ trend started in the USA, now considered a county so politically polarised civil war is inevitable, but has become an integrat part of UK and European politics, with left wing groups routinely employing rent-a-mob thugs to silence opposition.

The Liberal Democrats fall into this category, having moved from the centre ground of the Liberal Party to the brainless groupthink of far left politics. Years ago I wrote an article on what I believe drives this rabid hatred. It appears that as usual I was years ahead of the crowd.

Corbyn’s Labour resounds with loathing

by Tanya Gold, Unherd

hat any functional Opposition party would consider an opportunity — current Conservative Party behaviour — Labour treats as another abyss to hurl themselves into. They cannot help it; all narcissists are, at heart, suicide merchants longing to be exposed.

This is, we are told throughout conference in Brighton, a new Labour: organised, united, filled with generous and effective policies — they have found dragon gold — repentant on anti-Semitism and ready to take the fight to the external, rather than the internal, enemy. None of this is true.

I read politics by detail, not spouted fantasies. At a small fringe meeting on the freighted subject of the abuse of women in public life – about 90% of attendees were female, of course, in this party of equality — delegates complained to Diane Abbott, one of the most abused women in public life, that they suffered misogynist abuse in their party.

To Boldly Go – The Infinte Insanity Of The ‘Progressive Left’
‘Left-wing Intellectuals’ Are ‘Sneering at Ordinary People’

While Eco Loons Worship Fairies, Reality Exposes Real Cause Of Amazonian Fires

/

While Pippi Longstocking lokalike and eco – activist wunderkind Greta Thurnberg is schlepping her climate change schtick round New York, preaching her net zero carbon emissions gospel after crossing the Atlantic in a ‘zero emissions’ superyacht made of carbon fibre, a material which in its manufacture produces shitloads more carbon emissions than my or your car or even my brother’s V8 Range Rover will in their entire useful lives,) back home the Extinction Rebellion wankers have been getting their knickers in a twist about some fires (allegedly wildfires until it was reported they are started deliberately and are not destroying the rainforest, but areas of former forest now cleared for cultivation.

The farmers, many of whom are engaged in the production of organic food for vegans in the west while others are growing seed crops for making ‘clean, green, biodiesel to power cars and industry, are carrying on the ancient practice of burning last year’s stubble to clear the ground of pests, fungi and other things not conducive to high yields, but the univerrsity brainwashed millennials of the ‘woke’ left, the Liberal virtue signallers and the pig-tailed Thunberg alomg with her vast horde of worshippers are unaware of this and seemingly don’t want to know. How is it possible that about half the Western white population have the intellectual capacity of lobotomized lobsters?

Listen to their current endless whining about the forest fires in Brazil and the Left’s shameless lies about drought and rising temperatures and you might end up beliebing that climate change has caused them.

However the cause of these fires is most cetrainly not climate change, though it is the work of humans as described above. The fires are being set by Brazilians and are an annual occurrence. The reason there’s been such an upturn in the amount of fires is because the demand from consumers on the virtue signalling west for organic food keeeps rising. Similar deforestation is occurring in Africa, Indonesia, the Malay Peninsula, Thailand Myanmar and India.

In 2017 Brazil exported US$872 million worth of organic food to the West.

The problem for Brazilian farmers is that in growing organic food they are unable to use a wide range of pesticides and other safe products that keep diseases and pests at bay. This leads to them being unable to grow enough produce on their plots of land to make an acceptable living. For example, on a hundred acres of land with the use of pesticides a farmer can produce X tonnage of produce. But on the same hundred acres of land with organic farming—minus the use of pesticides—the amount of crops produced fall dramatically.

This means that the farmer who has switched from regular farming to organic farming needs to put more land to the plough to make ends meet, and he has to switch because the Big Food cartel buyers in the West won’t buy his product unless it’s organic and fair trade and all that leftie bullshit that makes lefties feel good about themselves but does not benefit the small farmers of the world one iota. In Brazil the only way the farmers can increase the land they can cultivate, unless they are lucky enough to own tranches of virging rainforest which they can clear legally by bribing a local official, or by more intensive cultivation which means getting rid of crop destroying fungi, the egg staches of leaf eating insects and the nests of small furry animals without using fungicides, herbicides or poisons which would cost them their organic producer status.

It must also be said that a lot of the current fires in Brazil also result from the demand in the West for bio-fuel (sic). Across the 3rd World governments and corporate food producers are clearing forests and woodland in order to meet demand for this most wasteful of fuels.

It’s just another instance where the Western Liberal idiots believe they are improving the climate and environment and the lot of the third world’s poor but in actual fact are doing enormous damage to them both and helping globalist governments and global corporations increase their power and the level of control they exercise over peoople’s lives, while indulging in orgies of virtue signalling. Stupid is as stupid does.

The intellectual idiots in the West, the opinion makers who have led the outraged screeching about the fires across Brazil are actually responsible for most of them being started in the first place. Scientific and economic theories about food prouction and distribution have favoured corporate business over independent farmers and family run small and middle sized enerprises in the food processing and distribution industry.

Would the Liberal halfwits in the West face up to this and admit they, with their whack Cultural Marxist ideas, are responsible for crerating much of the mess the world is in. To put it bluntly, there’s not a fucking chance of these paskudniaks ever taking responsibility for anything.

Lame Duck Merkel Snubbed As EU Leaders Reject Her Choice Of “Half Baked” Socialist For Top EU Job

While Trump’s handshake with an insignificant little fat man, the pro – democracy protests in Hong Kong, the latest exchanges in the US / China trade war and Boris Johnson’s bid to replace the hapless Theresa May as the next UK Prime Minister have dominated mainstream news over the past few days, another story which did not attract anywhere near as much attention could perhaps have far more long term significance. The profression of the ‘European Project’ from a free trade association of friendly and culturally similar nations to a federal superstate suffered its most serious setback to date as the first cracks appeared in the facade of neo – liberal unity presented by the centre – right / centre – left, globalist consensus bloc that has dominated the Union for decades, appeared as German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ‘s anointed candate to succeed Jean – Clauder Juncker as the president of the European Commission was rejected by other EU leaders.

MerkelMerkel feels her power slipping away (Source: Bloomberg)

In May, this year Europe’s ascendant populist parties scored their biggest sucesses yet in elections of representatives to the EU Parliament, a result that shifted the power base in the EU away from the Federalist / Globalist consensus parties to parties strong on sovereignty and national cultural values, though many people who rely on left-leaning outlets like the BBC, CNN, or state controlled French and German TV channels for their information. Britain’s far – left newspaper The Guardian tried to spin the results as a critical victory in as far as the mainstream parties did not do as badly as many pundits feared they would.

Though the center-right coalition known as the EPP (European People’s Party)  and center-left coalition S&D (Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats,)  lost their combined majority in the Parliament, they retained a plurality of votes, while populist parties like Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party and Italy’s League made strong gains. This blow to the establishment’s coalition has made selecting the replacements for Juncker, ECB President Mario Draghi, and other senior bloc-level positions (most of which are filled via backroom horse trading or pork barrel politics democratic process) much more difficult. Smaller nations have always sold their support, now with a realistic challenger to the consensus parties, they find they can demand higher prices.

As of today the new parliament has not yet been sworn in but Merkel, for so long a dominant figure in EU politics, has been exposed as a lame duck after her latest attempt at “un-retirement” was ridiculed in Germany. Her inability to gain support for the coronation of her coalition’s picks for top EU positions is seen as a weakness that can be exploited.

One EU official quoted by Bloomberg called the unexpected resistance to Merkel’s agenda- which came both from her coalition partners as well as ‘smaller countries’ who angered by their were exclusion from a deal cooked up mainly between Germany and France with officials from ther United Nations, the IMF and other supra national bureaucracies at the G20 meeting in Osaka – a “rebellion of rabbits.” Here’s a snippet:

If there was one thing Angela Merkel didn’t factor into her plan to make Socialist Frans Timmermans the European Union’s next chief executive, it was what one official in the room called the “rebellion of rabbits.”

As she flew back from the G-20 in Japan, the German chancellor and veteran of many an EU marathon summit was fairly confident that the 58-year-old Dutchman would be accepted by the rest of the leaders gathering in Brussels to decide who to put forward as the next head of the European Commission.

Sure, it was going to be a long night, but she’s faced down worse. As the sun rose, there was no deal and shortly after noon it was decided to reconvene on Tuesday at 11 a.m. after almost 19 hours of going around in circles. It was something almost without precedent.

What became clear was that Merkel had miscalculated the degree of opposition on two fronts: from her own center-right political family that felt betrayed she gave away the top prize. And also the smaller countries that often feel unseen and bared their teeth at the what felt like a stitch-up cooked up in Osaka.

As Monday morning’s deadline approached, Merkel was forced to meet one-on-one with national leaders in a bid to cobble together enough support for her lap – dog bureaucrats through bipartisan deals to get them accepted. And still, no deal materialized. Here’s how Bloomberg explained it.

For starters, the stage hadn’t been properly set. Deals and assurances weren’t put in place. Young powers smelled blood and growing intolerance for backroom deals – especially in an increasingly fragmented political landscape following May’s EU elections.

For Merkel, one year ago, this type of snub would have been unthinkable. But now that she has stepped down as party leader and set an end date for her historic chancellorship, the new blood in Europe is trying to make its voice heard. Guiseppe Conte, Italy’s Parime Minister, though nationalist firebrand Matteo Salvini, who had to accept a lesser official title is the de facto leader of the Italian government after the EU showed its comtempt for democracy by refusing to accept a Eurosceptic national leader, objected to the package of nominations presented on the grounds that it was put together with the help of people outside the EU political framework and without consultation with all EU members.

Merkel was isolated. Even usually reliable allies like Emmanuel Macron (who really fancies himself as the saviour of the European project, having reduced France from political chaoseto near failed – state political dysfunction in just two years refused to support her . As Bloomberg put it:

And French President Emmanuel Macron was not coming to her rescue – their relationship has been showing signs of strain. “In the long run we must draw consequences of such a failure,” he said at the end of day two. “Our credibility is deeply stained by these endless meetings that lead to nothing. We’re giving an image of Europe that is not serious.”

he PrimeT Minister of unconsidered Bulgaria summed up the frustration of the EPP’s smaller parties: “Nobody has the right to negotiate on our behalf, from EPP, whatever post they have.”

Another described Merkel’s plan to anoint Timmermans as “half baked”.

“Merkel is leader of the CDU, not the EPP,” Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov told reporters. “Well many other things came from Osaka as well. But nobody has the right to negotiate on our behalf, from EPP, whatever post they have.”

Such open defiance to Merkel from the leader of one of the EU’s economic basket cases would have been unthinkable even a year ago.

New German Coalition in Peril as Potential Partners Clash over 200,000 Annual Migrant Limit
Reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed a proposal from coalition partner and leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU) Horst Seehofer to limit the number of asylum seekers in Germany to 200,000 per year to secure a ruling coalition may be somewhat premature. Other coalition partners are not as positive on the policy.

Watershed Moment In US – EU Relations, Merkel Says Europe Can No Longer Rely On America
Only hours after Donald Trump infuriated Angela Merkel and the rest of his G-7 peers by refusing to endorse the Paris climate treaty, the US President has done it again. Hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel has now decided Europe can no longer rely on the USA to commit military support to EU nations that do not pay their NATO subs, should they come under attack.

Brexit: Is Germany Dictating to Britain How We Will Trade With The World After-Brexit?
Germany offering Britain post-BREXIT access to the European market for an annual “fee”! Who do these sausage scoffers think they are? The German government might like to pretend otherwise but there are twenty six other EU member states involved in negotiating any post – Brexit trade agreement with the UK, and Germany is not overly popular with many of them.

Left Wing Hate Mob Protesting At G20 Turn Hamburg Into An Inferno.
Militant anarchists staged a second day of violent protests in Hamburg as the G20 summit in the city held its first sessions. According to local reports, at least 45 people have been detained and 159 police officers have been wounded in clashes. For the second day, police had to resort to water cannon to disperse protesters from various neo – fascist groups (OK, we know they call themselves anti – fascist but the pathetic little university dumbed down idiots do not understand was fascism is,) while buildings and dozens of cars were set on fire in the suburb of Altona.

French Prime Minister says: “Europe Is Falling Apart”
After years of blythely ignoring years of economic stagnation, social deterioration, and an unemployment rate which stubbornly refuses to fall below double-digits for countries like Greece, Spain and Italy, Europe appears to have finally been shocked into recognising the reality of its situation by Brexit and the Trump election in the USA. Bureaucrats have responded with their usual tactic, scaremongering.

Project Veritas Releases Email Leaked By Google Mole Approving Censorship Of Conservative Writers

from TownHall.com

Matt covered the bombshell Project Veritas report yesterday which showed key Google employees discussing the various ways that they can manipulate search results in order to ensure the type of United States election results that they want to see. What Google wants, the videos suggest, is to prevent President Trump from winning in 2020.

Well, Project Veritas decided to dig into this bastion of liberalism. After all, its reach to the public with their products is how millions get the news. It’s also a medium that Donald Trump harnessed expertly to outmaneuver the Left in the 2016 election. Liberals know it. Over at Google, one executive, Jen Gennai, is working hard to ensure that its AI feature and associated algorithms work hard to pretty much help alter electoral outcomes.

Project Veritas, founded by James O’Keefe, caught Gennai on tape chastising presidential candidate and progressive icon Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for wanting to break up Google. Gennai claims this is wrong to do because smaller companies would not be able to prevent the “next Trump situation.”

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google,” Gennai said. “And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”  READ ALL >>>

As this blog has reported and speculated on many times, Google’s actions and the comments made by their senior managers, and the cosy relationship the tech company enjoyed with The White House under the Obama administration give grounds to suspect the company is not interested in profit so much as political influence. That is undemocratic and sufficient reason for the parent organisation Alphabet to be broken up. But who is really behind Google’s rise to a position from which it can influence not only the outcome of elections (though obviously not as effectively as its directors like to think, but also shape government policy.

We should remind ourselves every day that Google was launched on its path to dominance of the World Wide Web with money from venture capital outfit InQtel, which as all of us who take the trouble to be well informed are aware is a front for the CIA.

Says it all really.
