Greed, Inc. $TWTR, Fake Progressives, #Tech Bubbles And Personal Piggy Banks

There can be no doubt that those people living inside the tech bubble of Silicon Valley people live very different lives from the rest of America.

Weekend jaunts to lodges in Montana, Bourboun tasting at work, meeting with Cuban and French ambassadors isn’t the usual fare for most Americans.

Yet the cultural elites think their experience is typical, and it’s the rest of us living in a bubble.

On social media, at Twitter and in Silicon Valley generally, a false narrative thrives and drives the culture of the area and national politics.

How else could you explain the virtual eradication of a vibrant & eclectic San Francisco culture that has been replaced with a corporate, sanitized aesthetic that Jack ignores as he steps over homeless to go into Twitter HQ?

 

The tech, banking and insurance professionals have left San Francisco with,

The juxtaposition of the silent whir of sleek Tesla electric vehicles, with the outbursts of the mentally ill on the sidewalks. Destitution clashing with high technology. Well-dressed tourists sharing the pavement with vaguely human forms inside cardboard boxes.

Having lived in California since 1977, mostly in Fresno, yet having visited San Francisco many times I have noted the changes myself.

You can go anywhere to see blight and decay in contemporary big City America, however you could not go anywhere to see Haight & Ashbury, an uncommercialized yet still fun Fisherman’s Wharf (or Cannery Row in Monterey, also) and the various sights and sounds that were fun to see, but different for a kid from the Central Valley.

Now, with the blatant and wholly intentional polarization of the United States by the political parties (I hold both responsible) this is gone.

Destroyed in pursuit of electoral votes to divide with wholly hateful, and divisive rhetoric.

The degree to which Silicon Valley and the Federal government and big tech players have intermarried with a two way revolving door of hiring cannot be understated.

Note:  The tweets in this blog are only examples.  For more information use twitter advanced search and note interactions between White House, Twitter, Google, Facebook and cross check bios (ie Formerly White House, now twitter, and vice versa)

With Google and Facebook enjoying twice a week meeting with the White House (per a retired FBI source), and people like Katie Jacobs Stanton (White House alum) having worked for twitter, there’s little doubt that they have had their say with the current policy idea at least heard by the White House.

The techies in Silicon Valley wish to secede from the United States and seem wholly convinced that they and their culture is superior (seems racist) AND cannot succeed with the rest of the United States dragging them down.

People with loud (and abusive yet unmoderated accounts on twitter) push this idea.  That if only the cultural elites were free of their poor, yet racist(?!?) lessers in the midwest, everything would  be perfect.

Some go so far to push for an “apartheid state.”

Sorry, but no. I’m all out of empathy and compassion. Feel free to hate me all you want because I’m an elitist who shows disdain for you. Enjoy waiting for the factories and mills to return as you fling your resentment at the bicoastal elites who’ve created the government programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act (sorry about that) upon which you depend. You’ve been fighting a culture war and a religious war, and while you won this battle, you will most assuredly lose the war.

Cities and states can refuse federal funding (not that it will be offered for much longer anyway), and we’ve long known that the Confederacy survives only with subsidies from the blue states.

You’d almost think that no minorities at all live in middle America.

Bob Chipman frequently interacts with Twitter Trust & Safety member Anita Sarkessian of @femfreq, both on social media and in person.  He has been a frequent and vocal defender of Ms. Sarkeesian in his own writings.

To me, a descendant of Dust Bowl immigrants to California, this hate is the same my family has felt from the elites of California since arriving in the 1930’s.

The same bigotry and hate that drove my Grandfather from Salinas to Idaho.

 

Yet, Dr. Feelgood capitalists and their supporters would have you believe in their false reality, rather than the truth.

The Rich voted for Hillary Clinton.  The Washington Post reports,

The divide is economic, and it is massive. According to the Brookings analysis, the less-than-500 counties that Clinton won nationwide combined to generate 64 percent of America’s economic activity in 2015. The more-than-2,600 counties that Trump won combined to generate 36 percent of the country’s economic activity last year.

And yet ivory tower economists, wedded to neo liberal economics and policies would have you believe that service sector “jobs” (not hired, assigned gigs through your phones) is the inevitable future.

 

But he’s wrong, and cannot predict the future.  Americans aren’t scared of “new deal” type legislation, rebuilding infrastructure or a new item that happens to catch consumers eye while being manufactured in the United States.

If someone makes a must have industrial item (remember in the US a “pet rock” made a person rich) people will buy it.

Youtube commentator Kyle Kulinski, AKA Secular Talk, host of the Kyle Kulinski Show pushes back against Mr. Krugman’s ideas.

 

The truth is Silicon Valley (and twitter) fail at hiring women and minorities.  Fail at diversity while loudly proclaiming they succeed at diversity.

School districts in the Silicon Valley fail to educate students adequately even as the primary means of funding is State and local funding.

The local and state government has the means to raise funds, and the wealthy in the area to do it, but they do not.  In most cases these cities, counties and school districts are dominated by Democrats.

And the Democrats allies, like Paul Krugman push a false narrative in the mainstream media.

Democrats have dominated local and state politics in California, and this year clinched a super majority.

Yet things are not perfect despite all the power Democrats in California have amassed.

Despite being well off Cities, counties and geographical areas (Silicon Valley is broadly understood as a geographical area within CA), schools struggle to educate kids adequately to take part in the economy they are building.

Instead Tech elite would try to convince you that they are “progressives” for opposing a $91 dollar fee imposed by a city government.

Wouldn’t a true progressive view basic employment protections as somewhat of a litmus test to even be considered a progressive, or Democrat?  Or even just a reasonable person?

It would be fascinating if people that are ostensibly Liberal called on Uber to actually employ their drivers.  You know, the basic protections that people expect from a fair (and wholly wealthy employer?  Worker’s Compensation coverage, employment?

 

It’s Vijaya Gadde, Jack Dorsey, Sacca, and people in tech that have turned the world upside down.

 

One has to wonder who on earth is looking out for Twitter investors.  It doesn’t seem to be the Greed, Inc. team of Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde and Anthony Noto.

capture

Chris Sacca heavily pushed for Jack Dorsey to be rehired as CEO (2nd or third time around).

Jack Dorsey is a half time CEO presiding over massive destruction of shareholder value while embroiled in an abuse scandal that Vijaya Gadde herself politicized and publicized in her April 15, 2015 Washington Post op-ed.

Should a corporation trading below IPO for nearly a year should be held to the same scrutiny (at least) as an airline that allegedly discriminates against a Muslim?

 

Ross Gerber , Co-Founder & CEO of Gerber Kawasaki and media analyst has tweeted the following:

 

I think Twitter should fix itself before demanding change in others?

Twitter has consistently failed at diversity hiring, and instead of addressing the issue in twitter itself engages in poliitcal rhetoric and PR to distract from that reality.

One way to HELP would be to fund school programs IN local school districts where Twitter otherwise has offices.

I do not believe that any can reasonably believe that Twitter is “all right” or doing well, or practicing what they preach on their corporate and private (yet twitter leadership) accounts.

We have requested current diversity stats at this time.

Note:  This blog started out to be a contrast between Oakland Unified and Clovis Unified School Districts.  However as data came in showing that tech wished to secede and that Hillary Clinton captured the “rich” vote as identified by counties, the blog took another direction

Thank you to CUSD for their kind response.  Oakland Unified School District did not respond to our public records request at the time of this writing.

Clovis Unified is a Central Valley school district covering parts of Fresno (northeast), Clovis and Fresno County.  The students body is integrated to a fair degree.

The very best schools in Fresno Unified perform roughly equally to an average Clovis Unified school.

The primary source of funding for school districts in CA is state and local (property taxes).  Federal programs are opted into as the Federal Government does not have direct jurisdiction.

Data on CUSD, and their students is available online at:

Title I

Also of note is that 2nd generation immigrants perform equally to native born.

No, World. Milo Yiannopoulis of @breitbarttech Is Not A White Supremacist.

Milo Yiannapoulis is many things.  Gay, Jewish by birth, half greek, a ponce, intelligent, beloved by many, hated by many.

But he is not a white supremacist.

If you don’t want to believe me, just read feminist journalist Kristen V. Brown’s of Fusions coverage of Milo.

Yiannopoulos is an outspoken advocate of free speech on the internet—at all cost.

She pretty much rips him a new one, politely, but it’s fair.

After all, Milo admits he’s a provocateur and troll.

I began following Milo after he was deverified by Twitter because I felt it was an attack on professional journalists.

Little did I know at that time the volume of vicious attacks poured on him by entitled, empowered bullies on Twitter.

Randi Lee Harper, Brianna Wu and a cast of miscreants had spent over a year attacking him because he refused to bow to their demands to not write about Gamergate.

What journalists write is not subject to approval by twitter mob leaders like Brianna Wu.

 

“Attacking” would be writing a story this empowered cyberbully doesn’t agree with.

Brianna and Randi have conducted a cyberbullying campaign that actually is still ongoing as they are connected to the Democrats as activists.

Randi Lee Harper was able to have Milo locked out of SXSW16, to do his actual job, in secret negotations with SXSW admins.

 

A White House accredited journalist was prevented from doing his job at SXSW16 because two empowered bullies were able to silence him.

 

Randi Lee Harper, has met with @safety.  It’s astonishing that a California corporation would allow a safety consultant to actively abuse their own customers, but in Randi Lee Harper they have done so.

 

The left would have us fear censorship by Donald Trump on the internet when they conduct cyberbullying and censorship in broad daylight ignoring your basic civil rights.

Randi otherwise spends time bragging about the massive amount of abuse she can pile on @jack’s customers.

It’s atrocious.

Yet @jack and @support refuse to handle the matter and apply their terms of service evenly and supsend these two massively abusive people

Of course gamergate moved into the political race, and became the base of the people making memes and real live neo nazis, white supremacists and nazis tried to integrate into THAT movement and were partially sucessful in their efforts.

Believe me.  If I saw anything indicative of Milo’s being a white supremacist I would have said so.  I saw NO indication in his twitter account, or journalism.

The stain on his reputation is part of a deliberate effort by evil people to destroy people who write things they do not like.

And they are fully empowered on Twitter by @jack.

Thought Leaders (@shervin) Come Full Circle And Want Small Govt On Fake News $TWTR

After decades of listening to, and discounting conservatives for a small central government with more local control the election of Donald Trump has made them realize the folly of their ways.

Drake Baer, writing in The Science of Us for New York Mag notes the following,

The most radical idea Barber proposes is that maybe, just maybe, more of the tax dollars generated in cities should serve the municipality — and the homeless, poor, and otherwise disadvantaged living there — rather than being siphoned off to Washington.

Ironically, this is an old conservative talking-point: less national power, more local power. But in this case, it’s not about keeping gun rights; it’s social services. The path of effective resistance would be through greater unity among American cities and their governments. “It’s one thing for Washington to say it’s not going to do health care and social safety nets,” Barber says, “it’s another to say we will not let cities do it.”

 

I for one would fully support San Francisco having the money and the will to tax their homeless problem which rages as unions and politics gets in the way of importing Chinese steel.

However for the identitarian political leaders of the Democrats, it’s not about evaluating local needs and local control, it’s about division, gaining that 50% +1 vote (ignoring electoral college math for now) to win that election and have the power.

Thus those on the left are stuck blaming Midwesterners, who used to create the steel that they could have used to fix their homelessness, for being “baskets of deplorables” that if only they had voted THE RIGHT WAY would have won Hillary the election.

I believe the old adage is, “you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”

However for the Democrats, and their activists like Randi Lee Harper, Briann Wu and countless others abuse and attacks on twitter and social media of their self declared political enemies has been the order of the day, for years.

You can in fact pin some of the blame for Hillary’s loss in the election on the Democrats activists and Jack Dorsey, who gave them free run for years to abuse people.

The local leaders of Oakland and San Francisco are unable or unwilling (nothing is stopping San Francisco and Oakland from taxing more) to fix fix their schools, leaving inner city children trapped in failing schools.

Yet the idea of “local control” has been abhorrent to the very people that now bemoan their fates, suffer riots from disaffected voters, and wish for smaller government.

And instead of now reevaluating their positions many in tech in California wish to secede from the Union, convinced that California is better off alone.

Or calling for a white ethno state…

Meanwhile outside the self imposed tech bubble of Silicon Valley and social media, most Americans realize that Donald Trump is not as bad as media made him out to be (neither is Hillary Clinton) and simply hope for a functional government.

Hating the people that tried to tell them smaller, far off government is generally better, these people wish to have their cake and eat it, too.

 

 

Only when the elitists in their tech bubble in Silicon Valley fear that large government will they act to stop it.

If only they had listened to people tried to tell them that a large centralized government isn’t the best solution to your problems.

 

I am very happy Shervin was able to immigrate here during the Iranian Revolution.  I would thank him not to try to rip me, a resident of the Central Valley, away from my own country.

And people like Senior Editor David Frum of The Atlantic?  Not getting his way means it’s the end of the world.

The same thing was done to Ronald Reagan after he won, and the media painted doomsday scenarios.

Nothing to really see here, folks.  Just another day on fake news King, Twitter.

Twitter wonders why they aren’t growing and have a reputation for both abuse and fake news.

$TWTR: @twitter is number one in Fake #News On @Apple As @getongab Grabs Market Share

Twitter markets itself as a news application on the apple store.  Perhaps Apple and Tim Cooke need a fake news and propaganda category?

capture

 

According to Sensor Tower, Twitter is number one in the news category and 24th overall on the apple store.

 

twitter24

 

According to Vivian Schiller  Vivian Schiller former head of news and journalism partnerships at Twitter and also the former CEO of NPR,

SCHILLER: Let me just say I think it would be a mistake for social media companies to try to, on their own, determine or deign what is a fake news story and what isn’t and shut it off, or what’s a good news organization or a bad news organization. That’s a very, very slippery slope.

Yet, regarding the suspension of “alt right” twitter accounts,

The problem is there is very little transparency and consistency when it comes to what accounts Twitter is suspending and which they are not. As long as there is an even playing field for all and the rules are clearly understood, that would be a good thing. We are not there yet. There’s more to do.

Twitter is hamstrung by privacy laws and regulations that prevent them from showing (in most cases, absent compelling public interest on the specific topic, ie news) exactly why users are suspended.

It would go a long way towards clarifying matters if twitter would, in coordination with the suspended parties release the tweets that earned the suspensions of Milo Yiannopoulis, Mike Ma, Ricky Vaughn, Pax Dickinson, Richard Spencer, Chuck Johnson, John Rivers (and others)   and lead a public discussion about what behavior is acceptable and so the public can determine if Twitter got it right.

With market competitor Gab.ai growing at a massive rate, Twitter’s confusing the issue is CEO Andrew Torba’s gain.

Andrew Torba states,

Daily Reminder: all are welcome here

Gab is for everyone.

We are the defenders of free speech.

We are The People

The alt right and others find a free speech platform that doesn’t suspend accounts and has muting tools in place.

Obviously twitter, as a publicly traded company is being buffeted by the controversy generated by Vijaya Gadde when she blatantly publicized and politicized the abuse scandal at twitter in her WAPO editorial of April 16, 2015.

A major problem for Twitter is that they do not enforce their own rules consistently.

As Fusion Journalist Kristen V Brown noted in her own reporting after receiving death threats, 

But others, like those from the tweeters that suggested I needed to “go” and that it was “op time,” seemed like clear violations: they encouraged others to target me, repeatedly tweeted at and about me and made references to violence.

 

And yet threats and fake content are still omnipresent on twitter.

For instance you can solicit hitmen:

Declare our now elected President as a “common enemy” of CIA?

You can pretend Donald Trump has been sworn in and is President already.

 

 

A founder of Twitter, and Twitter Board Member (and twitter’s largest individual shareholder) Ev Williams called out Facebook for their “fake news” problem in a Medium post (Ev is CEO/Founder) that has made news.

I found it interesting that when I went to read Zuckerberg’s post about misinformation, there were two ads on the side that are super fake.

 

One wonders why Evan Williams is not more outspoken about the fake news and abuse that proliferates on twitter?

Twitter does have rules preventing abuse and fake news on the books, they just don’t enforce them.  And what they do enforce, seems to be one sides in the political spectrum.

It is at the point that Twitter’s core business is suffering as reflected in the stock price which is below IPO.

At the very least, Jack Dorsey and the Board of Directors owe it to shareholders to clarify what is going on, and what steps are being taken to cure the public perception of Twitter as a safe haven for abusers & fake #news.

$TWTR @jack allows @nymag’s @JesseSingal To Be Fake #news And Conspire To Abuse #Consumers.

Unless you can account for the massive use of social media that Barack Obama started and Donald Trump perfected you can’t account for how fake news by media such as Jesse Singal affected the 2016 Potus election.

Jason Abbruzzese of Mashable writes,

In some ways, it’s right out of the playbook of Barack Obama. Obama’s administration excelled at getting out its message in non-traditional ways while also being noted as one the most secretive administrations ever. For example: The Obama White House routinely leapfrogged the political media, giving interviews to YouTube stars (who aren’t, like Trump’s media surrogates, traditional presidential interviewers).

American politics is both cyclical, swinging from left to right and back again, and somewhat like magnets.

Magnets can attract or, if you reverse polarity, repel.

When you have peace and goodwill, the two parties work closer together, when they are at odds, like they have been since 9/11, you get polarization.

And this has led to the extreme polarization we see today.

With literal socialists on the left driving hateful Democrats rhetoric, and real live nazis on the right with their fingers close to the reins of power and driving the news cycle. the nation is as polarized worse than it has been during the heights of the Vietnam war.

So how did Jesse Singal manage to impact the election to such a huge degree?

By aligning with a SJW mob, and doing their fake #news for them.

Conspiring with them openly as they dogpiled and abused their way through gamergate, and right into the general election as pro gamergate people became pro Trump.

Jesse, so sure of himself, offered to conspire with a twitter account, @2dammuslim, that literally cyber bullied a Syrian war refugee right off twitter.

Mr. @2dammuslim is in the business of “persuasion.”

 

Jesse Singal seems to think he has “protection”.

Mr. @2dammuslim would not be shocked if he was banned by Twitter, however @jack and @support do not treat all their customers equally.

The same conduct that earns people on the right suspensions is ok if done by people with politics Jack approves of.

Mr. @2dammuslim knows his conduct harms twitter customers accounts.  Especially if they are big accounts.

 

Jesse however doesn’t value your civil rights, he’s ok with a Revolution (and the targeted abuse)  as long as he’s a net beneficiary.

 

Additionally @2dammuslim has been assigned by @glinner to attack journalists.

 

In short Jesse Singal got a revolution, and now he’s afraid of what he lit the match to start.

What’s more, Jesse Singal knows he’s fake news and contributed to Trump’s election.

I suppose Jesse is to be commended for his honesty.  It’s not like he tried to hide his efforts.

Honestly Jack Dorsey and Twitter sicken me.

When eminently professional feminist journalists like Kristen V Brown of Fusion receive death threats that Twitter won’t handle responsibly and people like @2dammuslim and Jesse Singal are free to abuse whomever they wish you have to wonder how Twitter remains in business.

Randi Lee Harper, a notorious abuser on Twitter has met with Twitter Safety.

 

Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde had this to say about abuse on twitter in her Washington Post Op-Ed entitled, Here’s how we’re trying to stop abuse while preserving free speech.”

This is, to put it mildly, not good enough. Freedom of expression means little as our underlying philosophy if we continue to allow voices to be silenced because they are afraid to speak up. We need to do a better job combating abuse without chilling or silencing speech.

One has to wonder how Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde and the rest of Twitter’s leadership feel they can protect free speech and fight abuse while empowering abusers.

The Director of Communcations for Lone Conservative (@loconservative), Michael McClister (@themidmerican) has threatened me on Twitter.

Mr. McClister, who previously posted my art without credit for which I filed DCMA takedowns and prevailed, is under the mistaken belief that I have doxed him.

Twitter, in all their wisdom, locked the account and forced the deletion of one (?) tweet.

However twitter left the following tweets up.

The tweets tell the full tale of Mr. McClister’s vicious threats.

 

Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde wrote in her Washington Post Op-Ed of April 16, 2015 that,

This is, to put it mildly, not good enough. Freedom of expression means little as our underlying philosophy if we continue to allow voices to be silenced because they are afraid to speak up. We need to do a better job combating abuse without chilling or silencing speech.

With vicious predatorial people like Michael McClister on Twitter one should doubt Twitter’s commitment to protect their consumers.

One should also doubt Twitter’s ability to protect their own business as Mr. McClister is heavily promoting Gab.Ai, the home of the alt right, on his twitter account and in articles penned at Lone Conservative.

Twitter’s inability to control the abuse by people such as Mr. McClister is a prominent feature of their lack of growth and corresponding stock price drop.

 

Of worrisome note is the rise of anti semitism on twitter, and now the Daily Stormer being heavily posted on gab.ai by Rickey Vaughn, a prominent suspended twitter account in the alt right.

Andrew Torba, CEO of GAB writes,

At Gab, we believe that free speech and free thought are under attack. Political correctness has risen up at the expense of freedom of speech and has become a cancer on discourse and culture. We think that people shouldn’t treat unpleasant, counter-cultural, or conflicting ideas, words, or behaviors as full-scale criminal offenses.”

Anti Semitism in the Alt Right; Pepe The Frog, Beardson Beardly and @Jack #politics

Art is interpreted in the eyes of the beholder.  Thus what one person finds to be art another can legitimtely feel it’s trash.

Critical to interpretation of art however is the Artist’s Intent.  

With so many things in life, there is room for debate and alternate interpretations.

However with Pepe The Frog there is no debate that Pepe is used by some anti semites to intimidate, threaten and harass Jewish people on Twitter and more broadly on social media.

The alt right combined mediagenic personalities and memes to broadcast their anti semitical message to a general public more connected than ever on Facebook and Twitter.

Anti semites like Beardson Beardly bursting on the scene as a David Duke of sorts.  A mediagenic face conveying the ugly message.

Beardson, who appeared to have ingratiated himself with Mike Cernovich by hiding his true nature (even earning a shoutout from Mike on a periscope as “funny”) quickly networked with alt right figures and even threatened young GOP future leaders such as Kassy Dillon on Twitter.

14169542_688253838014483_1815379431_n

Mr. Cernovich appears to have quickly detected the virulent anti semitism in Beardson and disassociated.

14331140_694326967407170_195998501_n

Beardson was quickly suspended for his overt threat, and has subsequently apparently been suspended mutliple times for evading suspension.

Beardson also opposed the #NeverTrump campaign led by Ben Shapiro and Louise Mensch of HeatStreet on twitter.

 

Their use is nazi like propaganda from the alt right, which themselves seem mostly disaffected southern and midwesterners holding onto old time prejudices and hatred hoping for a comeback.

It’s as if the South is trying to rise again.  I believe we fought a Civil War over that, however some dreams seem to die hard.

As journalist Kristen V Brown of Fusion writes in Twitter has failed at controlling horrifying anti-Semitism:

Secondly, the social network has time and time again failed to accurately and consistently assess abuse when it does make its way into Twitter’s review process. Twitter’s abusive behavior policy is famously vague, but even when the violations of it are indisputable, the network often fails to act. Earlier this year, I experienced this first hand when Twitter failed to take action against several death threats against me that very clearly violated its harassment policies.

 

No matter what you think about Beardson Beardly’s commentary, he has a history of overt threats on twitter.

The heretofore noted rise in anti semitism in Europe has made the jump to America, stoked by the high visibility and volume anti semitism that is on twitter.

Jack Dorsey and Twitter, as a #news branded application have moral culpability in allowing a massive parade of intimidation and filth on twitter.

We hope that there’s a lesson learner here.  That stoking the fires can and will result in flames.

Musician Sergio Michel was also attacked by elements of the alt right on twitter and has actively withdrawn from association with the alt right due to their lack of professionalism.

Mr Michel was quite appalled at the trolling on twitter by a journalist from a site that had sought him out for interview.

 

That is rather than write an assigned article, Mr. Cooper chose to troll Mr. Michel on a secondary (?) twitter account.

The full exchange is archived, and took place on 10/21/2016.

Mr. Cooper, who operates numerous twitter accounts, is an intern for Lone Conservative.

The infecting fringe element of anti semites and twitter trolls needs to be removed from the party, stat.
