Great American inventors?

with 94 comments

What’s wrong with these pictures?

That can’t possibly be the result of natural search algorithms.

Remember what I wrote a few days ago about how big tech companies will use their power to influence us in a liberal direction? It’s already happening.

* * *

Comments suggest, and it makes sense, that this could be the natural search result based on the huge interest by “authoritative sources” in promoting black inventors, while no one cares that much about inventors in general.

This is not the 1970s when there was that Schoolhouse Rock video that praised the most famous inventors, all of whom were white.

Still pretty crazy that Thomas Edison doesn’t show up until the 18th photo.

A different perspective from the NY Times

with 13 comments

“News analysis” article by Scott Shane:

Bags of cash delivered to a Rome hotel for favored Italian candidates. Scandalous stories leaked to foreign newspapers to swing an election in Nicaragua. Millions of pamphlets, posters and stickers printed to defeat an incumbent in Serbia.

The long arm of Vladimir Putin? No, just a small sample of the United States’ history of intervention in foreign elections.

. . .

“If you ask an intelligence officer, did the Russians break the rules or do something bizarre, the answer is no, not at all,” said Steven L. Hall, who retired in 2015 after 30 years at the C.I.A., where he was the chief of Russian operations. The United States “absolutely” has carried out such election influence operations historically, he said, “and I hope we keep doing it.”

No doubt one of the reasons why this was ignored by the Obama administration was because hostile foreign governments have always been doing stuff like this, and normally we ignore it because we do the same things. We have been ignoring very significant Chinese cyber-espionage for quite some time.

But because people who passionately hate Trump are looking to delegitimize him, what used to be brushed off has now become a big deal.

What about the paid trolls working in favor of Hillary Clinton? For example:

Hillary Clinton’s well-heeled backers have opened a new frontier in digital campaigning, one that seems to have been inspired by some of the Internet’s worst instincts. Correct the Record, a super PAC coordinating with Clinton’s campaign, is spending some $1 million to find and confront social media users who post unflattering messages about the Democratic front-runner.

Hungarian citizen and multi-billionaire George Soros is well know to be spending massive amounts of money push America further to the left.

Guidos, almost as bad as NAMs.

Updated the link because commenters were disbelieving that they were Guidos.

In Switzerland, it will be illegal to boil a live lobster, because of the alleged pain that the lobsters feel while being killed by boiling water.

The future of AI-based free-speech suppression

with 102 comments

https://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2018/01/13/how-conservatives-are-being-destroyed-by-facebook-twitter-and-google-without-even-realizing-it-n2433962

I think this issue is really huge and isn’t being taken seriously enough by conservatives.

The means by which people discover things on the web are controlled by a few huge corporations that are run by liberals who hate Trump voters. There is Google which also owns YouTube in addition to the search engine, there’s Facebook which also owns Instagram, and there’s Twitter, and everything else is too small to matter.

Scott Adams, famous Trump supporter, was shadowbanned by Twitter.

I personally am shadowbanned by Instagram right now, so I know how angry it makes one feel that a huge company has resorted to such a sneaky way of silencing you. The Instagram shadowban is relatively easy to detect right now by logging into another account. I foresee that they could be more sophisticated about it in the future. Instagram (owned by Facebook) could tie accounts together based on common sign-ins from the same IP address or device ID, requiring you to log in from a completely unconnected account to see a shadowban.

Algorithmic discovery, plus smart AI that can detect bad speech (alleged racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, with very broad all-encompassing definitions) can lead to very effective shadowbanning of anyone the elites want to silence.

Republicans, while they still control the government, should break up these huge tech monopolies. But they are too stupid to see the future like I do. They’d rather cut those monopolies’ taxes.

Nikolas cruz and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

with 54 comments

Daily Mail has theory that Nikolas Cruz has Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. This sounds reasonable. It’s common in adopted children, because what kind of mothers give up their children for adoption? No, it’s not Juno, it’s women with problems, often substance addiction problems. It would be better for the world if those types of women had abortions instead of carrying their babies to term. That’s why I’m pro-abortion.

Anyway, this is not a case of beta-male rage, it’s more of loser with behavioral problems rage.

Elliot Rodger was the most pure example of beta-male rage, a milquetoast with social anxiety who suddenly goes postal, and specifically on the type of girls he lusted for but wouldn’t give him the time of day (at least that’s what he theoretically set out to do). I don’t see Nikolas Cruz being in the same category. Cruz is said to have an ex-girlfriend. Cruz’s bad behavior may even have been sort of attractive to a certain type of girl.

There are several reports that Cruz was bullied, and that surely contributed to his rage against the other students at his former school.

All the Fake News that’s fit to print!

Would the NYT have reported that a suspect was ISIS based on such flimsy evidence? Absolutely not!

Hispanics converting to Islam

with 58 comments

https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2018/02/08/584057034/building-a-latino-muslim-coalition-with-tacotrucksateverymosque

See, it’s happening!

Seven years ago, I wrote this:

A certain commenter keeps making fun of people for believing that Muslims are going to conquer the world. But aren’t they?

(1) The Muslim leadership has the desire conquer the world, which is a necessary first step in actually conquering it. Once upon a time, white Europeans conquered the world. Why can’t Muslims have their turn?

(2) The Muslim leadership has much greater future time orientation than we do. Because the world won’t be conquered by the end of next year, the commenter thinks this means the whole idea is a big joke. But the Muslim plan is multi-generational, and it seems to be working. Islam is a lot more dominant today than it was fifty years ago. Iran was secular, and is now an Islamic state. Turkey was once secular, and is now significantly less secular. In Egypt, the women once dressed in normal western clothing, and now they are wearing hijab. Hindus were once 30% of Bangladesh, but now they are only 10%. In all European countries, the percentage of the population which is Muslim is increasing. If white Europeans were able to convert the ancestors of America’s Hispanic minority to Catholicism, why can’t Muslim missionaries convert them to Islam?

I predict that Islam will conquer most of the world, with China owning the rest. Maybe Japan will remain independent. Whites in the United States and Europe will be ethnically cleansed by the future Muslim majority.
