Stanford University fraternity told to remove American flag because it’s intimidating and aggressive

0

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

The next time we find ourselves despairing about the future of America, remember the young people of Sigma Chi and the Stanford Review.

The Stanford Review is an independent newspaper staffed completely by Stanford University undergraduates. It describes itself as “a political magazine that promotes independent thought at Stanford. We aim to promote debate about campus and national issues that are otherwise not represented by traditional publications.”

China Orders a Halt on Weddings Failing to Incorporate Xi’s Communist ‘Thoughts’

by Edwin Mora, Breitbart:

Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping’s administration called for an end to increasingly lavish weddings in the Asian country in a decree this weekend, arguing that expensive ceremonies amount to an anathema to “socialist values.”
On Saturday, China’s ministry of civil affairs decreed at a conference on wedding reform that instead of an extravagant event, weddings must “integrate core socialist values and excellent Chinese traditional culture into the construction of marriage and family.”

FAA’s “Integration Pilot UAS Program” Is Really A National Police Surveillance Drone Program

by MassPrivateI, Activist Post:

This year was full of many disturbing stories, like the one about Bloomberg’s role-playing workshops being used to convince the public to accept police drones equipped with microphones. And another about politicians claiming police drones will help revitalize a downtown and create community connections.

None of that could have prepared me for what I discovered after looking into the FAA’s drone program.

Microsoft President: We’ll Give Pentagon ‘All the Technology We Create’ (VIDEO)

from Sputnik News:

Tech companies have had to grapple with increasing pressure over the past year from employees wary of the dangers of giving the US military their all-powerful tools, such as artificial intelligence.

Google, for example, saw a massive uproar from its employees after it was revealed that the company was working on Project Maven, a Pentagon project to use artificial intelligence to analyze drones. While Project Maven remains a degree away from AI-powered weaponry, it’s another step down a slippery slope, according to the 4,000 Google employees that signed a letter opposing their company’s cooperation with the US Defense Department. In June, Google said it would not renew their contract for the project.

Google Autocomplete Censors ‘Deaths From Opioids,’ ‘Deaths From Fentanyl’

0

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Google’s “autocomplete” feature is censoring both “deaths from opioids” and “deaths from fentanyl.”

Using “death” instead of “deaths” in both searches made no difference.

Deaths from fentanyl are currently skyrocketing, so you’d think highlighting that these drugs are going to kill you would be a priority.

SCIENTISTS URGE WORLD TO SHARE DNA IN CENTRALIZED DATABASE “FOR YOUR PROTECTION”

from InfoWars:

Between the ever-encroaching eye of Big Brother, the imminent events of pre-crime AI, the exposure of tech behemoth privacy contempt, and the inevitable ‘hack’ of any and everything online, it is perhaps understandable that your average joe is more than a little nervous – no matter how romantic the idea of discovering you are 1/1024th native American – to hand over their DNA to the next tom, dick or dotcom wanting to tell you if you’re lactose intolerant or when you’ll get diabetes.

I Quit Google Over Its Censored Chinese Search Engine. The Company Needs to Clarify Its Position on Human Rights.

by Jack Poulson, The Intercept:

JOHN HENNESSY, THE chair of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., was recently asked whether Google providing a search engine in China that censored results would provide a net benefit for Chinese users. “I don’t know the answer to that. I think it’s — I think it’s a legitimate question,” he responded. “Anybody who does business in China compromises some of their core values. Every single company, because the laws in China are quite a bit different than they are in our own country.”

Hennessy’s remarks were in relation to Project Dragonfly, a once-secret project within Google to build a version of its search engine that meets the demands of the ruling Chinese Communist Party — namely, that Google proactively censor “sensitive” speech and comply with China’s data provenance and surveillance laws.

Google Chatter About Censoring Conservative Media Shows Why It’s A Threat

by Daniel Greenfield, Freedom OutPost:

Google has far too much power over the national discourse. And stories like this should be a wake up call about its power and range.

How do you deal with companies whose grip on the internet is so powerful that they control more of what people see than governments?

That’s a question that more conservatives are coming to grips with. When I first began raising this issue, it was often dismissed out of hand. Conservatives believe in private enterprise. We should find alternatives to companies that maintain monopolies over the internet.

Independent Media Labeled ‘Dangerous’ & Disqus Comment Notifications Listed In Gmail As Suspicious Or Spam As Big Tech Finds News Ways To Attack Alternative Media Websites

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Independent Media readers are well aware of the multitude of ways big tech and social media platforms have been censoring conservatives, from demonetizing video channels, to blocking, banning and shadow banning conservatives, to limiting the reach of promotions and by “tweaking” algorithms so that search results push Independent Media sites so far down that they can rarely be found. They also colluded to completely deplatform Alex Jones, where a dozen different services cut ties with him, or terminated service all within a 24 hour period of time.

This morning The Daily Caller published an exclusive blockbuster report showing discussions by Google employees, where they debated whether to bury conservative media outlets content in their search results, after Donald Trump won the 2016 president election, in order to prevent him from winning again.

A Google spokesperson told The Daily Caller “Google has never manipulated its search results or modified any of its products to promote a particular political ideology. Our processes and policies do not allow for any manipulation of search results to promote political ideologies.”
