I wonder if Google will take down MNE since it doesn't adhere to only orthodox news media content.

Tom Hickey said...

I don't think we are on the radar — yet.

They'll take down Sputnik, Unz Review, The Saker, and whoever else is on Tom's news feed.

Speaking of Russians, I like their new war movie "T-34".

I recommended it to my brother who works in the MIC but he hasn't written back!

Are things so bad that liking a Russian movie is hazardous to one's security clearance?

"I don't think we are on the radar — yet."

If this site were inciting violence or conspiring to overthrow the government, then, yes, Tom, you'd be "on the radar"... and rightly so.

Also, Tom, since I have your undivided attention ... :) The only worries this site would ever have, in addition to above-mentioned, were if the shameless, lifelong drifter Trump had gotten his wish and section 230 were repealed. Why? Because, as you well know, the owner of this site would be liable for the commentary posted regardless if said owner disagreed with said commentary.

As for the shit-stain and anti-semite Steve Bannon, he is associated with Trump and the Trump administration. And for the last two months he's been spreading baseless election fraud claims and inciting violence. That is why the piece he was banned. Should have been done months ago. (btw, no First Amendement issue here either.)

"Are things so bad that liking a Russian movie is hazardous to one's security clearance?"

I just watched the Russian science fiction movie (1972) "Solaris" a couple of months on TCM, an American channel. Great movie, and way better I thought than "2001: A Space Odyssesy" (who am i kidding, 2001 is freakin' unwatchable). So, no, things aren't that bad.

“I don't think we are on the radar”

That the understatement of the year....

Matt Franko said...

Bannon has his stuff on Rumble too...

Matt Franko said...

I think Bannon is pretty talented for someone who didn’t have much broadcast experience before this... he does a pretty good job hosting...

Matt Franko said...

He’s with some anti ccp HK Chinese guy and Kyle Bass I think... they’re all probably short China...

I think Twitter is trying to eliminate that Tom with their “blue checks” thing...

Right there you can see they are trying to create ‘user classes’ which the open systems standards typically don’t support...

Users are users... with open systems...

Matt Franko said...

“Blue checks” are a user class.. no bueno...

Tom Hickey said...

This is a relatively new technology and new cultural phenomenon. It's going to take some time to figure it all out. Lots of rough edges now.

The worst case scenario is that government steps in with a heavy hand.

Tom Hickey said...

It's really an issue of balancing freedom and responsibility, and the problem is that the behavior is overwhelmingly adolescent — all freedom and no responsibility.

lastgreek said...

I would not be at all surprised if we learn that Bannon were good buddies with the “Camp Auschwitz“ guy.

Tom Hickey said...

At present it's "terms of service," and that is pretty broad and arbitrary. Internet firms depend on advertising so they set their criteria largely on that basis, as well as to avoid stepping over lines that might mean imposition of tighter government regulation.

A resolution is not obvious or it would probably be in place already.

Matt Franko said...

They are lefty Tom... class obsessed...

It’s Marxism synthesized with the OSI protocol stack..,

Matt Franko said...

“This is a relatively new technology and new cultural phenomenon”

LOL Tom those are two separate things.., only Art Degree trained people would think to try to synthesize them... This is a relatively new technology and new cultural phenomenon

Tom Hickey said...

This is a relatively new technology and new cultural phenomenon

The new tech that underlies social media proliferation has produced the cultural shift. It's a matter of entering deeper into the digital age and feeling the way. Huge psychological and sociological changes leading to political and economic changes. The digital world and analog worlds are different worlds.

He’s Jesuit trained ...

No MMT fan though he’s more like Mike with the UBI: “ In 2019, Dorsey contributed financially to the campaigns of Democratic 2020 presidential candidates Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang.[87]

In 2020, he donated $15 million to 29 mayors pursuing the piloting of guaranteed basic income programs in the United States.[88]”

Probably biased anti-war...

Matt Franko said...

It would be funny if he fucked anti-war Trump to help Biden and then Biden starts another war...

Almost guaranteed Biden will start another war or at least expand current ones. He is a Wilsonian and Trump was a Jacksonian, and I supported DJT in that and will ceaselssly oppose Biden's Wilsonianism.

That guy doesn’t get it Tom.... it’s not the munnie with trump he doesn’t ever put any in ..,it’s the TERMS..,

William Casey did anti commie Capital Cities Broadcasting back in the 50s but it was a square deal for the investors... eventually got bought out by Disney ... they all made bazillions out the ass...

Trump is going to want 51% without putting any munnie in... THAT might be the problem.. ie the TERMS...

There is a ton of munnie out there to do it..

“ if he fucked anti-war Trump”

Lol...

Matt, you still peddling the “stop the steal” nonsense?

The Kremlin critic said the precedent will be exploited by the enemies of freedom of speech around the world. He also accused Twitter of allowing conspiracy theorists to continue peddling false information.

Bit of a contradiction there?

My oh my, how our libertarian ideals have shifted since Alex Jones got booted from YT.

Peter Pan said...

Is Bannon as good at hosting as he is at getting hosed?

Tom Hickey said...

Trump is going to want 51% without putting any munnie in... THAT might be the problem.. ie the TERMS...

But the question is whether it would be profitable. Probably people working on spreadsheets as we speak.

Matt Franko said...

Yeah you have to not do an app... these apps are proprietary not open..,

Just stick to a regular open systems.,,

Matt Franko said...

Tom Fox News is the most profitable unit of news Corp by far..

Matt Franko said...

Tom do you know how much fucking munnie all these people have made over the last 30 years off of NOTHING but discussion/dialog over conservative politics????

Matt Franko said...

I think Rush’s last contract was for something like 300m ... that was just the LAST one..,

Matt Franko said...

Never built or made ANYTHING... all fucking Art degree dialog... blah blah blah..,

Time to make an investment in a real system if they are legit..,

Al Jezeera over paid and bought Al Gores douchebag global warming nutter moron channel for 200m to start Al Jezeera US in a day... PEANUTS...

What is newsmax worth? maybe a bit more than that today.. they got the munnie,.

Tom Hickey said...

Like I said, depends on what the spreadsheets say. Folks that have $ put it where it makes $. If it is not profitable for them, they are going to give him x% because they like him?

Andrew Anderson said...

How cynical can you get, Tom?

Matt Franko said...

“Matt, you still peddling the “stop the steal” nonsense?“

I’m not peddling anything here I don’t get munnie for anything here....

Gotta get the actual ballots and do a forensic exam of them...

My hypo is that Dems are a paper tiger they don’t have the voters they allege they have... they just ballot box stuff in their Democrat goon controlled precincts with impunity..

But gotta examine the physical ballots to determine that for sure...

If trump tries to get 51% I don’t give it much chance.. maybe give him 10 to 15% .. if he doesn’t put any munnie in..,

Who now wants to be affiliated with the Trump family?

Twitter fight between AOC and Cruz. And no surprise, AOC is giving him a spanking. Really pathetic that Cruz. Wonder how his "ugly wife" puts up with him :(
