Muy Private Tech Monopoly Censorship, Continued



Start your own Twitter!, the cucks and corporatists and leftwing censors said.

So someone did.

So then Twitter's pal Apple -- and these people are in frequently contact with each other, "harmonizing" their censorship strategies -- bans the competitor to Twitter.

Chase is cancelling people's private bank accounts; MasterCard is refusing to process credit card payments, and pressuring Paypal and Patreon to deplatform people.

This is getting well beyond "just make your own site."

Do we have to make our own parallel banking system and new internet as well in order to speak without leftwing censorship?

I know the corporate cucks' answer. Just keep that sweet, sweet corporate donation money coming, and they'll say anything their corporate masters ask them to.

And oh, by the way:



Make sure you get out your checkbooks to donate to National Review! They're fighting for you, you know!

(Assuming you're Google or the US Chamber of Congress or some other very well-heeled corporate interest.)

23 Apple is pretty strict on what can be in their app store, although I've never heard of them forcing people to moderate content on a platform - type app.

I have to imagine Google has no position on this. it would be big news if they (with a famously open platform in Android) tried to ban an app from being downloaded on their OS.

yeah, I mean, I'm not like shocked by this.

The Apple Store doesn't allow of lot of apps in.

For example, it won't allow me download a wifi channel analyzer to determine which channels are most clogged in my area for my wifi. Because it could, theoretically, be used to get information that could be used to hack someone. So they just ban an entire category of useful apps.

Google has no such restrictions.

Texas is closer (I already live here) and has legal ways out of a collapsing USA. We joined by treaty. Treaties are only valid as long as both parties exist. If the USA ceases to exist, or can be said to exist in name only (such as if the Constitution is suspended), we would have the right to declare that treaty null and void.

So, and this is a little concerning -- iMessage is supposedly peer to peer encrypted, so the safest way to send text without anyone being able to interfere with it. But it's a program owned by Apple, a company that seems to embrace censorship.

The biggest, most used, and famous peer to peer encryption text app (which I also use), WhatsApp is owned by ... Facebook.

So... yeah.

That's a separate issue; the network libraries don't have methods to drive the wifi hardware at that level because the OS handles it. It's meant to keep apps siloed from teh other apps on the same system for security. It's not that they don't allow that class of app, it's that the API isn't published.

Its not a matter of being able to compete. The left has long done this. In the 1980s, a newspaper tried to compete with the hard left local (only) paper. So the Statesman-Journal contacted all their advertisers and said "make a choice, advertise in their paper or ours, because you can't do both" and all the advertisers pulled out.

105 The Aces check their sleeves,
Hearts rippling across the breeze.
The Queen arises
Slowly,
Torn dress ripped at the knees.

The Jack saw his fill
And quickly took his leave.
Stood trembling in a doorway,
Mind struggling to believe...

The King was an alcoholic,
It was widely known to be so,
Each eve he would sit solemn,
Wine in hand and sword on show,
Clapping to the Jokers' japes
As he danced and sang
About love and fate.
But how was the King to know?
Not two rooms away
His wife had lain,
With a smile and a *****.
Creating a cuckold and a fool...

The Jack had had enough
And promptly marched
To the throne room.
Armed with only knowledge,
Unleashes inevitable typhoon.

The winds will rise,
This house shall succumb,
Imploding inwards
Till the house is done.
And all that remains
Among ash and decay,
Broken hearts and broken spades,
Is the Jokers last laugh.
A mockingbirds call as daylight fades.

114 The banks and financial services companies are a late entry to this -- and, to some extent there is political pressure on them. For example, the New York regulator for banks and insurance companies, was trying to get the banks to stop working with the NRA. Publically, through the issuance of industry bulletins with thinly veiled threats to those who wouldnt play ball.

These regulator positions are frequently elected officials -- they're political. And New York holds outsized influence in the financial sphere.

195 These guys plain refuse to read their history. Even in the Soviet Union there was samizdat, the underground publication of banned texts.

If there was any brain in these techies' heads they would just let all this evil, offensive conservative thought be published. (Hey, we may not agree with it, but at least we can see, read and hear what those evil people are thinking...and we can make some money off it as well. Such should be the thought process, one would think...)

But the ONLY thing they will achieve is driving everything underground where it will ultimately rise up and bite them in the ass. (Trump's election, anyone? So many people in the media and elsewhere were so dismissive of him and the deplorables that when they woke up on November 9, 2016 and saw Trump was elected, the shock was real. But ALL they needed to do was to shut up and listen.)

hereby declared to be illegal shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and,

On Android you can side load apps by going to developer settings and allow.

Not so with Apple. Everything has to go through their platform. To be a developer you have to own a Mac PC and pay $100.00. That is the only way to get an unapproved app on the iphone...but that's only your phone.


We could build mobile style apps on the web; I build them sometimes to be responsive to the phone and work like a phone app.

237 Tucker discussing Tech Tyranny.

Posted by: redridinghood at June 25, 2019 08:22 PM (RBOtF)

238 The problem the majority of people who are not far left wackos have is that they pride themselves on holding beliefs based on well thought out ideas that can be defended in debate. We mistakenly think the world can be swayed by points and counterpoints, when in fact it is ploughed down by the left with baseless slogans screamed in our faces 24/7.

Demonetise YouTube - build a list of advertisers that are on You Tube. Forget the well thought out emails and arguments on the merits of free speech - tell them you are disappointed they are supporting a fascist movement that is suppressing minority voices and we will not support that, nor should they.

Put the GOP on notice, in the UK, the Tories are about to be destroyed if they don't deliver an agreeable Brexit as requested. The GOP, Democrats, Labour and Tories are really all just different shades of the same colour at this point. The media tacitly supports all of them but gets to berate the conservatives for not being quite the right shade. Anything of a different color is not allowed.

Consider if Political Opinion would be given the same protected status as being gay or a minority such that you could not discriminate based on it. Imagine getting what would happen if you were demonetized by YouTube because you posted a gay or trans video. Same rule should apply if you were kicked off for political opinions. Obviously the same rules apply regarding direct violent speech. This actually solves a mighty number of problems, Doxxing conservatives, deplatforming them, not serving people in MAGA hats etc. all those things you would never be able to do to a trans/gay person you now couldn't do to a conservative.

Drop Facebook, Google, Chrome and use the Brave browser and switch search engines. Brave was also started by Brendan Eich who after founding Mozilla and creating Javascript (quite possibly one of the most influential developers of all time) was ousted over donating to proposition 8.

The left has a neverending pool of cash it has seeped off from taxpayer funded bullshit and a rich cabal of sugar daddies which are used to fund protests and cases of lawfare. We have no such active benefactors so if they are not interested in opposing the non-left agenda, then maybe its time to feed them to it. I have no problem piling taxes on multi-millionaires, since a) they are mostly democrats who support this shit, and b) they sit idly by while we their political allies die deaths by a thousand cuts. Lets make them live by their own rules.

Sargon of Akkad in the UK, after a failed election campaign made an interesting video talking about the new way of dealing with leftists. Bring them out into the open, make them debate and show them up for being imbeciles with no coherent argument. I have yet to see a conservative view point utterly taken down by any of these wackadoodles, they have no case they can make that the average person would agree with.

We are the majority, the centrists, the conservatives, and even the libertarians. We don't all agree, but we agree enough to get along. That is what these people should be afraid off.

250 I do not think NR has any idea of the damage that Frankovich's response and then NR's attempt to memory hole it did to what remained of its reputation.

The initial reaction was to assume the allegations were true and to equate them to blasphemy. What. The. Hell.

And then there was an all out no no on we totes support the kids and he just cared so much and suck my girl dick.

As far as French Davidians, what annoys me the most is that they accept, implicitly, the notion that anyone on the Right deserves to be pushed to the side. It is an agreement that the Right isn't really a part of polite society, dontcha know, and that it's just fine to accept the presumption that the culture on the Right is something apart and different and outside.

It is precisely the same worldview of the portion of the Evangelical world in which I was raised where you attended your own schools, and you did not participate in pop culture at all, and you tried to keep your money in the community and on and on and on. It was all very insular, and very restrictive and I don't mean the religious strictures, and it was a very cramped way to live.

Anyhoodle, screw those guys in particular.

I'm on the floor hog-tied and bound
The door is locked to my new room
I don't know if I will be found

I'm on the far side of the moon
Deep silence I can't hear a sound
I really thought I was immune
Even though no one was around

I think maybe it was about noon
I saw you two and my heart drowned
You were hand in hand love abloom
How on Earth could I have been clowned

My hand to my hip then the boom
You lay bleeding on the hard ground
Caught within the web of your loom
Grief and misery both abound

Tour song of love was out of tune
I weigh treachery by the pound
My heart break to you I impugn
My once kind smiling face has frowned

Horrid deeds drop me in a swoon
The gravity does me astound
You will be buried this afternoon
A grave and tomb will you impound

The green-eyed monster sealed my doom
But why, why did you so confound
A love, a life so opportune
My feelings for you so profound

A cuckold pathetic buffoon
Alas no peace have I found
Here on the far side of the moon
Here on the floor hogtied and bound
You lay bleeding on the hard ground
Caught within the web of your loom

She made me wear
A pink french maid's uniform that day
I had to wait on her and her black stud lover Tyrone

Fix them drinks and make them dinner
These are the duties of the ***** cuckold

It's hard to be inferior to him
He is so well-built and powerful
A perfectly sculpted body
A large and powerful manhood
He is every woman's dream

She reminds me that no beautiful woman
Will ever want to be with a ***** like me
That my manhood is too small
That my *** drive is too low
Nature has dealt me a bad hand

I sit by the bedroom door
This time I am not allowed to watch
She only told me that they would be doing it *******

I sit next to the door
I hear her load moans and sighs
I know he is pleasuring her
In ways I never could

My goodness
Forty-five minutes have passed
And they are still going at it

I peer through a crack in the door
He is so powerful that he can hold her up
As he thrusts deep inside her

I am not strong enough
To have *** in the standing position

What a man he is
He can squat 300 pounds
And has a strong powerful ***

Look at him ******
She screams in ecstasy

After she is finished
She will tell me how wonderful he was
As I polish her high heels

After he leaves
I have the humiliating and exciting task
Of giving her oral pleasure

These are the duties of the ***** cuckold

337 It is precisely the same worldview of the portion of the Evangelical world in which I was raised where you attended your own schools, and you did not participate in pop culture at all, and you tried to keep your money in the community and on and on and on. It was all very insular, and very restrictive and I don't mean the religious strictures, and it was a very cramped way to live. "

Cramped, yes - but if you believe that the dominant culture is headed for complete collapse and crash, then it makes sense to insulate oneself from it. Especially if you're right.

And the feeling in strongest in those traditions that have survived previous cultural collapses. Lost count of how many civilizations Judaism has survived, and Christianity is on at least it's 3rd.

btw, Islam will not outlive Islamic civilization, and that civilization probably only has a couple of generations left in it.

Today started off sunny, and at about 3 pm suddenly this storm came across peaking at 65mph winds for about 10 mintues. Still got limbs to pick up in my yard from that.

Normal rainfall by this date here is right at 23". So far for the year, we're already at 40" and the rain keeps coming!

it's pretty good, actually. cauliflower is not as good as pasta, obviously, but if you have a strong sauce or dish, you don't notice all that much.

I season it a lot and i also throw in a bunch of bacon. and I cook the cauliflower in bacon grease (from the bacon, obviously) to steep some of that flavor into it.

I'm sorry that I am not on the big-government regulation train you want to start rolling to solve what you perceive to be the problem with Big Tech. Call me silly.

And, yes ... I was not convinced by that video you linked that "proved" that neuroscientists know pretty much exactly how the biochemistry of the brain works and have unlocked the secrets of addiction and habituation ... clearly demonstrated by experiments that measured rat smiles which showed that dopamine definitely is attached to "want" in human thinking and not "like" ... because rat brains are pretty much human brains in miniature and everyone knows that rat smirks are the key to understanding neurophysiology.

LOL.

I made clear my take on Big Tech and how it should be approached. You don't like that way? Good. You have your ideas. But I am not on your Big Government approach and I am not turning in favor of Net Neutrality utility regulation arguments. I am against that stuff.

And the tech companies are not controlling your mind with dopamine-infested click baits. Get a grip.

You're not the first person I've heard say that. But I haven't seen anything running on one of those platforms, so I wouldn't know.
I hot-rodded this 4-yr-old laptop a bit to run Reaper: put 4 more gigs of memory in it and bought a full-sized 32-gig SD card then formatted that to run in ReadyBoost cache. It seems to run a bit faster, but occasionally it just doesn't want to boot up. Didn't start that until a couple of Win10 upgrades ago. Seems as though about every fourth upgrade is hosed somehow.

480 @424 I really hope the generation after the Millennials is so sick of the shit they start the push back.

---------------

Hopefully, but...

That potential is the real reason why PC exists. PC exists to make people say something that they flat out know is false just to avoid censure. It's the same thing that was done in the communist countries during the Cold War. You know that X is no true. But Bad Things(tm) will happen to you if you admit that X is not true. And X is such a little thing, almost insignificant. So you knuckle under and agree to it.

Then someone asks you about Y. But you already lied about X, and what's one more thing to be able to not draw the wrong kinds of attention to yourself? So you think it over, and lie about Y as well.

And then before you know it, you're lying about the whole alphabet.

481 "pasta is great unless you're one of the many, many people who puts on weight when they have carbs. then it's a problem"

I eat a full Italian Sunday dinner every week. While I don't consciously avoid it during the weekdays , I don't eat it that often on other days. I eat a lot of different proteins during the week and fresh Vegetables. I really don't have any issue with my weight and maintain six pack abs, but I also train and workout 7 days and vary routines. I've done this for a long time so some it is due to training my body and some due to metabolism.

---------------

Based on my understanding of the whole thing, I'd prefer not to see the legislation go through. My understanding is that it essentially removes the "neutral platform" protections. But then the issue is that if someone does establish a truly neutral platform, they'll promptly get set-up and destroyed by a sue-happy individual who anonymously created the post that was used as the rationale for the lawsuit.

What we need is to simply acknowledge that Google and the other companies are not neutral platforms. From what I understand, simply acknowledging that fact will immediately remove them from under the umbrella of protection that's provided by the law.

566 mikey G, I made that last weekend, but with egg noodles (4 eggs, 4 ounces cream cheese, quarter cup almond flour, salt, pepper, oregano, blended up, then spread on a cooking sheet and baked at 350 for 15 minutes) instead of zucchini.

The egg noodles were okay, but next time, I'm skipping the noodles and just doing a lasagna of just meat and cheese and some sauce.

I will do the egg noodles when I make ravioli, though.

Posted by: JackStraw at June 25, 2019 09:31 PM (PxX5

I posted this yesterday, but here is the only way to watch Hannity.

DVR the show.

Then play it back on a slow fast forward. The sound goes away, and you know the topic because of the graphic that changes every few seconds behind Hannity's head.

When a guest shows up, drop to normal speed, watch as much of the Q and A session as you can until you have taken as much of Hannity's rude manners as you can.

Then, speed it back up again. Repeat as necessary.

This also works for commercials.

An entire Hannity can be watched in 15 - 20 minutes.


You're welcome.

580 Mueller has been a very weak performer in his public appearances so far.

But it's been obvious that Nadler's hearing are going nowhere, and they're desperate for anything to fire them back up. Still, Mueller's in a trap - if he says anything new, well then why didn't you put that in your report? Why did you sit on it till now? But if all he says is what is in the report, well so what? He's opened himself up to question from Meadows and Co. for nothing.

I'm rather surprised he agreed, but the pressure has been immense.

592 absolute easy-peasy staple: baked chicken parm, low-carb

pound chicken breasts into something like a uniform thickness.

on a plate, mix about equal parts of crushed pork rinds (sometimes called pork rinds panko, or just crush your own in a food processor or just by sticking them in a ziploc bag and crushing them) and grated parmesan. Also mix in salt, pepper, and a lot of italian seasoning, plus extra oregano and basil.

Mix eggs in a bowl.

Dry off the chicken breasts, then drench them in the egg.

Then move the breast to the plate of pork rinds and parmesan and cover both sides.

Lightly coat a cookie sheet with olive oil. Put the chicken breasts on that. Spray or brush olive oil on to the side facing up.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Take the breasts out. Spoon on low-carb pasta sauce to cover them, but not in heaping amounts.

Then put on as much mozzarella as they will bear, and maybe a sprinkle of more parmasan.

Now bake them for another 5-8 minutes. If you want, you can broil them at the end for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese, but KEEP AN EYE ON IT, they can turn quickly and also the olive oil will be at or near the smokepoint and you don't want that burning too much.

Take them out and let them rest five minutes.

You really can't tell these from chicken parm made with bread crumbs. The pork rinds swap is a perfect swap. Nothing lost.

Make 4 or six of these on a weekend day and you've got a bunch of meals for the week.

Posted by: ace at June 25, 2019 09:39 PM (PbpT7)

If you want mashed, get a kitchen tool called a "ricer".

Late wife had a zillion overpriced kitchen tools, she seemed to bring a new one home every month or two. I would wonder what some of them were used for.

She used a ricer to "mash" yams, add brown sugar, butter, maybe some pineapple, then made a pecan - molasses - other stuff topping she would drizzle on the top, then baking it. The top would become crunchy like chocolate on a dipped ice cream cone.

Heavenly.


I know, can't use yams because of the starch. But the ricer is a tool that was much greater than any expectation I had for it.

It would work well for cauliflower.

647 616 Since Mueller isn't going to answer jack squat the Republicans on the committee ask him, how about the Reps ask him what involvement he had in the Whitey Bulger move from Max Federal Prison to gen pop in what was essentially a low level mob prison.

Posted by: Radical Centrist at June 25, 2019 09:54 PM (1ui5c)

He was moved to a max PITA prison in WV last November and murdered by other inmates the same day. Methinks Whitey was about to tell us all he knew about his Boston Buddy Bob. If the inmates who wacked Whitey aren't dead by now, I'd bet they earned an early release, transport out of the country accompanied by suitcases of cash.

tomato sauce has carbs and you can't get rid of the carbs in the tomatoes (you can only cut all added sugar), so you have to go easy on it.

Oh, by the way, if anyone likes that very sweet tomato sauce you get in hole-in-the-wall restaurants or like in Prego or whatever, feel free to add a no-carb sweetener to the sauce.

670 oh, re: the chicken parm

I spices are your friend. Do not be afraid to add a lot of spices into the pork rind/parmesan mix. If you don't add enough salt, italian seasoning, oregano, basil, it might taste a bit bland.

The italian bread crumbs they use have a lot of seasoning in them so don't be afraid to put a lot of seasoning in.

I DVR the Seahawks games, too. But I am usually at a local bar with the Fantasy Football crowd, and the bar is loud so I just follow along with the crowd.

Then when I get home, I watch the game again, to enjoy the details and the comments. Sometimes, replay a big play a few times. Probably takes an hour and a half.

I mentioned the Hannity thing more as a public service to those I respect who stop here from time to time. Which is pretty much everyone here.

I didn't, this is a new thing. Last time I fasted, I almost immediately started eating badly and regained weight. this time, I want to keep it off, so I'm meal prepping every weekend.

So far it's working; i'm holding at my post-fast, post-rehydration weight.
