The Musk Special: Government-Privilege Two Ways

When I was at Stanford University in Silicon Valley earning a JD-MBA (not a fun place for a principle-based libertarian, at least not at the time), there was no end to techie business or law school students who would argue with me that governments needed to fund research for the betterment of society. (The most … More

My Top 50 Go-To News Sites – Headlines of the Day

Getting accurate news as well as good faith analysis is a challenge in this age of information overload, disinformation and limited hangouts, but one can develop what I have dubbed “truthdar” and sort through the headlines to get a sense of what’s really going on. It’s also quite challenging to hit all your top sites … More

Touchstones Trump Conspiracies

The Trump election is the most significant thing that’s happened in the world since 9/11, in my opinion. I think even the first black president pales in comparison because it didn’t actually change our course. Trump’s presidency might. The interesting question in my opinion, however, is not, “How did he get elected?” but rather “Why … More

The Midas Touch?

I have long wondered if Trump did not release his tax returns because his main source of revenue for the past ten or fifteen years might have been his long-running reality show The Apprentice, during which time he worked for then NBC’s Jeff Zucker. Zucker, by the way, now-head of CNN, along with the rest … More

Keep Your Googly Eyes on Eric Schmidt 👀

After Hillary vanished into thin air, I put my expectations for Google’s Eric Schmidt in the “What do I do with this now?” file, but when I happened upon a recent video talking about Trump’s meeting with tech giants, including Schmidt, I refiled my views on Schmidt under “same stuff, different day,” and put my article on the subject back under “What to Watch Out For” (#WTWOF)…
Here it is again in case you missed it the first time….

The Censorship Agenda: What To Watch Out For

November 6, 2016
In preparing for The Propaganda Report, I go through my newspapers since the last episode and see what I highlighted. This week, I saw an article I had flagged about Alphabet Inc. Chairman Eric Schmidt. It seemed an innocuous enough article, though it did make the Googlaire seem both altruistic, citing his work with Timshel (more on that later), and ethical–according to “leaked emails” he recommended a competitor over his own company for a project. (Funny how the “leaked emails” can reveal how above-board and well-meaning some people are!)
Here are a few excerpts from the article:
Alphabet’s Eric Schmidt Gave Advice to Clinton Campaign, Leaked Emails Show
The executive backed a startup that helped develop some of the technology behind Mrs. Clinton’s website

Mr. Schmidt in April 2014 backed a startup dubbed Timshel that helped develop some of the technology behind Mrs. Clinton’s campaign website, including functions to sign up supporters and accept donations, according to the emails….
A Timshel spokeswoman said in an email that it develops technology “to help nonprofits, foundations, social entrepreneurs and social-impact organizations build and activate communities.”…
Mr. Schmidt suggested using Amazon Web Services as a cloud provider. Amazon.com Inc.’s cloud service is the chief rival of Google’s cloud product.

I flagged the article because I recalled having investigated Schmidt’s Deep State ties in the past. In reviewing my old research on him, I saw that he was a member of the Trilateral Commission (as was Jeffrey Epstein, the main character in this week’s episode of the Propaganda Report), and a Bilderberger, like Vernon Jordan, the subject of an article I posted this week on Jordan’s positively Orwellian pleading for Big Tech to save us from “unfiltered information.” The weird thing is

Gerasimov Doctrine, Russia's Cyberstrategy?

I was just reading an article in the WSJ called Behind Russia’s Cyber Strategy A 2013 article by Russian Gen. Valery Gerasimov emphasized importance of cyberwarfare but in typical propaganda fashion, the Gerasimov’s original article was not linked, so I did a little digging, and found Gerasimov’s article translated, but also found that the analyst … More
