Google Marxism: Internet Ideology and the Academics Who Perpetuate It --Presented as the opening lecture of the Libertarian Scholars Conference hosted by the Mises Institute. 30 September 2019. --By [CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald | 30 Dec 2019 | "Big Digital" consists of an array of business, political, and social interests, an ensemble of technology companies and Internet services, including but not limited to the Big Four: Alphabet (Google, YouTube, etc.) Amazon, Apple, and Facebook. Big Digital wields enormous economic and political power, presiding over Big Data, and serving as the chief arbiter of expression, with the power to effect the digital deletion of "dangerous" persons from its various platforms, as the gulag was the means to physically disappear dissidents and other thought criminals from "normal" life in the Soviet Union.

American Airstrikes Rally Iraqis Against U.S.

American Airstrikes Rally Iraqis Against U.S. --Iraqi leaders say the United States violated Iraqi sovereignty with attacks that killed 24 people in retaliation for the death of an American contractor. | 30 Dec 2019 | Iraq has been caught for years in a tug of war between its two most powerful patrons, the United States and Iran... But American airstrikes that killed two dozen members of an Iranian-backed militia over the weekend have now made Washington the focus of public hostility, reducing the heat on Tehran and its [alleged] proxies. Iraqi leaders accused the United States on Monday of violating Iraq's sovereignty and expressed fear that increasing tensions between the United States and Iran could escalate into a proxy war on Iraqi soil. Even the tenor of the street protests has shifted, as anti-Iranian slogans have given way to anti-American ones. Demonstrators and others attacked what they deemed to be America’s disproportionate response -- the killing of 24 militiamen on Sunday in retaliation for the death of an American contractor on Friday.

Steele, however, was terminated as an FBI source in the fall of 2016 because he spoke to the news media.

NSA has been 'lying to the courts all along,' says whistleblower, as judges give warrantless surveillance the thumbs-up

NSA has been 'lying to the courts all along,' says whistleblower, as judges give warrantless surveillance the thumbs-up | 21 Dec 2019 | The National Security Agency can gather the data of US citizens without a warrant - as long as it gathers this data by mistake, a court has ruled. However, this suits the agency just fine, whistleblower William Binney told RT. On Wednesday, the 2nd Court of Appeals in New York declared this "incidental collection" of information permissible. The NSA has maintained that it is incapable of separating properly and improperly gathered data, but former NSA Technical Director William Binney told RT that this is simply untrue. "They’ve been lying to the courts all along," Binney said. "They've had the capability to sort that stuff out. It's just that they don’t want to."
