11 new laws and financial changes for 2019 taking effect

You Can Tell Facebook And Google Are Evil Because Hollywood Made Movies About Them

Google loves IOT devices. IOT devices love to biologically feminize, sterilize and emasculate males of all species. These devices don't go to The Good Place when you recycle them, they end up in your body.
Monsanto paid Google to bury unfavorable news
Revealed: Google made large contributions to climate change deniers
Monsanto paid Google to promote search results for “Monsanto Glyphosate Carey Gillam” that criticized her work, the documents obtained by The Guardian revealed.
Google OK To Pump Diminishing Pristine Groundwater To Cool Servers
Google = Evil
Articles appearing in Common Dreams, Futurism and The Guardian have described how a well-respected Reuters journalist, Carey Gillam, was systematically harassed by Monsanto with the assistance of Google.
Back when Google started deploying its little Street View cars around our neighborhoods, the company also ended up collecting about 600 GB of emails, passwords, and other payload data from unencrypted wifi networks in over 30 countries.
The Inexorable Evil Of Google's Governance Structure
Pentagon says Google's Drone Targeting Work Is Exempt From Freedom of Information Act
Google starts AI lab in China while ending an AI contract with the Pentagon
Google building technology to automate oilfields and to enhance oil retrieval.
How Google Girly Men Are Made
I know the guy down the road from my place who invented Febreeze, a petrochemical odorizer. An odorizer is something that "stinks pretty", as my dad used to say about perfume. He has a degree in chemistry. If you like breathing petrochemicals because they smell good, be my guest. That new car smell is nothing but poison. The educated people destroying the world are highly trained professionals. They're not nearly as smart as they think they are, but they're highly paid, and highly professional. The people who approve the chemicals are highly paid, educated professionals, who will sign their name to anything with 6 zeros attached to it.
Petrochemicals and plastic use grows 7X faster than human population. By 2040 more oil will be made into chemicals and plastics than burned in cars each year, for the first time. People who work in plastic extrusion plants die young. By 2025 cars will spew over 5 gigs of EMF data per day, as your car makes more money from your personal life than the sale of itself new. By 2030 your car will lock you up and drive you to the cop shop triggered by AI debtor prison algos. Miss one big payment too many, and pray your car doesn't suicide you off the road in revenge before it gets there.
In China your phone auto pays for your jaywalking ticket before you hit the other curb thanks to AI facial recognition. AI IOT devices are made from toxic nano mineral petrochemical plastic particles. And, by 2025 there will be gazillions of IOT bugs. Gates wanted a computer in every home and google wants a bug up every ass. That's why google protects people like Monsanto.
Smart diapers will eventually turn your kids into stupid sterile ghosts. Car tire and brake nano dust combine with combustible nano magnets, and PFAS dust, with C02 levels of 1,000 ppm, to literally make you 15% stupider and infinitely sicker. By 2025, sitting in your car for an hour will make you sicker than 2 hours of wearing VR goggles on Red Bull.
Urban water air food fabrics and EMF fields are toxic to life on earth, and will have unstoppable irreversible multi-generational genetic consequences that will be ever so very terribly slightly unkind. Our nano plastic metal gadgets, gizmos and bugs are making us chemically extinct as a species, the good news is that runaway climate extinction may slow the process somewhat.
Before You Begin Your Journey - I would like to introduce academic scientific fraud. This goes to prove how sold out academia and science are, with the possible exception of any subject ending in studies. I don't know my ass from a hole in the ground, but I do know that you should never trust anyone over 30 who is a physicist or priest.

The Green New Deal Conspiracy

It doesn't matter how old you are, it's time to grow up and face reality.
Did you know most green sites have a pro business agenda?
Did you know before covid there were 4 billion flights per year?
Did you know food shortages are weeks if not months away?
Did you know US oil exports went up 1,000% since 2010 and saved us from the 08 crash?
Did you know petrochemical has been growing 7X human population for 20 years?
Did you know that 100% renewable energy is impossible?
Did you know earth's magnetic field is weakening 5% per decade?
Did you know that ozone destroying chemicals are smuggled from China to the US and Europe every day? Do you even care?
Did you know when James Hansen proposed a carbon UBI with zero percent for governments and corporations, Bill McKibben and Bernie Sanders sponsored a bill for the feds to sequester 40% of any such dividend? Do you even understand what the fuck I'm saying?
Did you know there are thousands of studies out of Europe, the Pentagon and on PubMed saying that too much EMF saturation is bad for all plant and animal life?
Did you know that green sites care more about money than the environment?
If you said no, to any of the above questions, then what the fuck are you here?
Most ozone that protects you from the sun is right over you head, and it has never stopped depleting. This is because of refrigeration fraud. It's exactly the same as when you found "recycling" was a fraud.
You have no idea how much fraud is perpetrated in the name of virtue. Electric cars will have absolutely zero effect upon the climate, who ever tells you otherwise if lying.
In fact, almost everything you think you know is a lie. The US spends a trillion bucks per year on oil and war, the last thing they care about is the earth. If it doesn't make them rich, they don't care about it. Me first, earth second. The reason you don't know anything is because academic fraud has been going on for 100 years ( see links at bottom ), and guess who hates you knowing this? Academics.
The same people who brought you 911 and the opioid crisis, are the same people who are going fix it.

HOLY WOW^3! Plus a bonus!

Holy wow.
Should read HOLY WOW4. Whoops...
We've reached and screamed by the 300 subscriber mark!
I swear, you guys...Many thanks to you all.
Our plans for global domination continue unfettered...
Just for that, I'm adding this little rant I did a while back about those idiots in the Human Resources clan that make a contractor, freelancer, or out-of-work job-seeker want to forgo all social mores and feed an entire clade of people to into a large, bottomless hole outside the orbit of Saturn.
Please, as always, share and enjoy.
And thanks again. I never believed for a minute this would ever happen, but there you go...
Beer, vodka, and cigars all 'round!

A Traditional Triumvirate of Tripe: Company HR Departments, Recruiters, and Job Scammers
Disclaimer: The information/opinions expressed in this article is purely based on my own analysis and does NOT represent the views of any Company, Organization, or Government.
Although it probably should.
Ever since the Oil Industry, particularly the upstream sector, went into a OPEC-engineered, (and US frac*-aided) career slump in late 2014; a fog of fibs, fabrications and flat-out falsehoods have infested what were once proud bastions of truth, honesty and most importantly, employment.
(*Read: ‘Hydraulically fractured’. But most will rely on the unfortunate shorthand moniker ‘frac’.)
It seems that with oil and gas jobs evaporating worldwide, there is a resultant precipitous fallout on the detritus of once-prosperous careers that feeds and nurtures the nativity of a blighted crop of hucksterism, unprofessionalism, and opportunism. Of course, I'm speaking of some oil company HR Departments, Recruiters/Headhunters, and their inevitable afterbirth, Job Scammers. From the corpses of once celebrious careers, the cadaverine of cupidity issues forth from these four-flushers with the deftness and delicacy of a double-tap.
If the reader takes from my tone one of rage, exasperation, and loathing, I am well pleased. I have been personally embroiled in this fetid stew, as an unwilling recipient, for far longer than I care to remember. Only few times before in my academic and industrial career have I been witness to such a confederacy of dunces, sad-sacks, and second-rate flub-a-dubs. One such memorable debacle was at a "Creationism Conference" in Kentucky, which will one day rate its own literary necropsy, while another was with the charlatans, con men, and latter-day carpetbaggers poised to prey parasitically upon the freshly-exposed carcass of the Former Soviet Union.
The former was an exercise in intellectual dishonesty shoddily wrapped in the threadbare and shoddy vestments of mythology and pseudoscience being foisted off as reality. Luckily these folks can presently be pointed out, laughed at as mountebanks, mummers, and misanthropes, and rightfully ignored. The latter were far more pernicious: foregoing the supernatural aspect of the Kentuck Creationists; for these con- and rip-off artists aim right where the reality is at its most real: in one's wallet or pocketbook.
So where do the miscreants of this missive land in the scale of scumbags? I will cite instances of intellectual, professional and industrial dishonesty as well as obvious and familiar attempts at financial fuckery. Seems while we might not have squared the circle, these bozos certainly have spanned the scurrilous spectrum from ignorance to apathy to fraud.
Oil Company HPersonnel Departments
Typically thought of as an adjunct to only the larger of the oil companies, this is no longer the case. With the rise of unconventional resources and the integration of the internet, seems most every drilling, exploration or production company website has a "Careers" section; sometimes where they actually post jobs.
More often than not, it's an electronic Post-it® note in an empty section "under construction" or "404 File not Found" and the admonition that the company will not accept unsolicited resumes without a job reference number. Likewise, there's rarely an email address posted in the "Contacts" section; and if there is it's a generic '[email protected]', which usually feeds into an overflowing, but never updated, examined, nor read, mailbox.
Translation: "Bugger off. Don't call us, we certainly won't call you."
Heartwarming in the extreme. Hope you dump 78 sacks of Blue Circle HPHT down your sloughing well and your balls erode.
Let's take a look at some of the more pernicious activities of some of the Human Resources clan who somehow managed to hold onto their positions during this time of global economic crisis and general worldwide brouhaha.
Posting for 'speculative' jobs: "These jobs don't really exist, but they might sometime in the future. Be proactive and send us your resume so we can file it" and immediately forget about it. Right, and I might win a Mr. Conviviality award at the local HR congress, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Resume fishing: “We will hold on to your resume and contact you if we ever have any jobs that meets your qualifications." A favorite ploy among many HR generalists. Why pay recruitment agencies and go through the pain and suffering of actually talking to prospective applicants when we can generate a glimmer of false hope and stuff our filing cabinets to the brim with hordes of free resumes? We'll be so well placed when the industry finally turns around that we can just put our feet up, scarf donuts, and wait while the deluded hopefuls pour in their particulars. Dishonest? Perhaps. Immoral? I would think 'yes'. A shitty business plan? Without a doubt.
Time taken to respond (if such does actually occur): HR departments are legendary in their sloth, often losing footraces (in a metaphorical sense) with glaciers, so some time is necessarily, though grudgingly, allowed for some form of response. 3 months? 6 months? An entire year? Or, as noted in this gem of a canned attempt at defense from an actual HR manager: "I am the only one who screens, interviews, checks references, runs background checks, and completes hiring paperwork with applicants. As you are well aware, it can be a very time consuming process."
Oh, boo-fucking-hoo. You actually have the brazenness to bewail the fact that you have to do your job? People like this have their heads so far up their asses that they've turned into living Klein bottles. I'll guarantee you you'll receive absolutely zero sympathy from your chosen audience. Remember those folks who are actually trying to land a job upon which your very job depends? Evidently not. Perhaps it best to ignore this company and let this poor bedraggled HR specialist find out what it's like on the other side of the desk.
No notice of jobs disappearing/being put on hold: Barring receipt of even a token message, when the applicant finally loses whatever semblance of patience he or she once had, a phone call by the applicant and some telephonic roulette later, one is reluctantly informed: "Oh, that job was filled internally/phased out/put on hold until the continents reassemble."
Unemployed oil workers subject to such treatment are to be lauded in their restraint to not personally visit the oil companies guilty of this misdeed and re-enacting some of Vlad the Impaler's more indelicate activities.
And now, the big one:
No contact after applying: Ask any demographic group of the unemployed which set of phrases should be given a huge ceremony, flown at great speed to the International Space Station, held in microgravity, force-fed cesium milkshakes and jettisoned forever into the sun, and I think these would be high on the list (here's for humor: try and guess which are paraphrased and which are direct quotes…):
i. "We thank all applicants for their interest in this opportunity; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted."
ii. "Due to the expected volume of applicants we may not be able to send you a personal response but only communicate with you if your application is successful.”
iii. "Nevertheless the HR department has more and better things to do with its time than respond to everyone who’s looking for a job."
iv. "Unfortunately, because of the volume of applications we receive, we aren’t able to give status updates, but if you are invited for an interview, you will be contacted directly by the manager for that position.”
v. "The person responsible for the vacancy will contact you should your skills and experience match their requirements.”
vi. "Please note, due to high volume of applications, recruiters are unable to accept phone calls.”
vii. "Due to the volume of applications we receive, it is our policy not to give contact information to external applicants. If, after you apply, it is determined that you match our hiring needs, you will be contacted directly for an interview. "
viii. "We would only reply to the applicants who are considered to fit the position.”
ix. "The CVs that are not meeting the requirements will be ignored.”
x. "If you don't hear from us in the next weeks, you may assume that someone else's experience was more suitable for the job, or that the job vacancy was filled in another way."
xi. "Applicants not contacted within 31 days after the closing date, should consider their application unsuccessful."
(For those keeping score, these are all verbatim classic HR department responses, personally harvested from Emails and various websites.)
Having been on the hiring side a few times in the last 38 years, I can proudly relate the fact that I have responded personally to every single applicant no matter how out in left field the applicant's experience and education. I once posted for a Sr. Geophysicist, and received resumes from everything from Nuclear Engineers to Quality Assurance Managers to Sous Chefs. A bit on the bizarre side, but even that misguided and presumably bewildered chap deserved to be told that he was, unfortunately, not selected for the position. I have always maintained that any company with the wherewithal to advertise for any position also has the funds to reply in a timely manner, be it negatively or positively. Unfortunate that many of our brethren and cistern in Human Resources do not agree.
So much for the company's HR employees; more could be said, but what hasn't been said of that group that hasn't already been said about hemorrhoids?
However, here's yet another group of individuals that should be rounded up, given First Class tickets and flown at great speed into very deep and remote parts of the ocean:
Recruiters.
I know, I know. Not all oil and gas recruiters are dimwitted slack-jawed knee-walking knuckle-draggers only recently adapted to using sharpened pencils, but there are some...some who willingly instigate and participate in activities such as:
  1. Cold calling old numbers without checking first. Checking what, you ask? Well, perhaps if the callee is alive? Sort of a basic requirement of not only advancing a career but, on a much more basic level, being able to converse and exchange gasses. This may seem, at the outset, ludicrous, but from personal experience where a family member has shuffled off this mortal coil, the dimwits and nescients of HR were calling to inform him of this great opportunity that just opened up. The reason? It was a vacancy created by that person not being available though his expiration. How meta is that? You see, it's well worth the time and effort to do a simple Google search, it voids the necessity of cleaning all that egg off of your face.
  2. Next on the hit parade: Promising to call then never following through. Again, something regrettably gained through personal experience. Several times in the last couple of years, I have received Emails about great positions that I'd fill perfectly; was I interested and if so, when can we talk? Just need to message the recruiter back with the "Yes, I'm interested" and time/date/telephonic coordinates for the much anticipated conversation. Breathlessly waiting for the phone to ring...though it never does. Calling them yields nothing as you are routed directly to unanswered voice mail and further Emails are similarly ignored. Of what can this be in aid? Did you fill that position with someone else and you're too timorous or gutless to confront me telephonically? Did the position suddenly evaporate? Did the position never in reality exist? Are you some form of gormless deviant who delights in wreaking havoc on unemployed people's lives? Are you someone who should be taken out back of a rarely cleaned public outhouse and beaten with spiked baseball bats on a field of freshly sown broken glass? I'll let the reader draw their own conclusions.
  3. Then there's this old Expat's perennial favorite: Calling without checking the callee's time zone. OK, I'll admit this is relatively trivial (especially since we are finally receiving a call), but as we're on a roll here, it needs to be included. You see, it's generally well accepted that we all inhabit the outer crust of an oblatley spheroidal planet that is currently evolving, revolving at 900 miles per hour. And through international agreement, this old globe is chopped up into 24 more or less equant time zones. I won't even go into the celestial frippery of daylight savings time or other subtle temporal nuances, but it's generally taught in elementary school that the time in London, England is rather different than that in London, Ontario. And that similarly goes for time in Moscow, Frankfort or Amsterdam versus Muscat, Houston or Calgary. It's not too difficult to check an area code and figure out what city you're calling, buckwheat. Invest the 30 seconds before dialing.
  4. Another favorite activity of people whose brains seem to have vapor-locked from being left idling far too long: Continued advertising of ancient jobs: For example, consider this little disheartened gem:
"Geologist (Exploration) Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production (OOCEP) Arglebargle, Middle East. *Posted 1198 days ago*."
That ad is over 3 fucking years old! OK, to its credit, the site notes the ad (screaming across the site in solid 8-point type) is expired, but why do they need to keep it current on the web? "Look, see, we had jobs!" How many times is this seen in a Google search and someone thinks it's a real, not fossil, job? Are they deriving revenue from such hits? If so, it's at the least unethical; however you slice it, it's a fucking stupid way to do business. If it ain't a current position, lose it.
Sending out job adverts for expired jobs. Ever received an email with that perfect job only to find out that job is "expired"? Makes one wonder. Why is this job, from a freshly-minted Email message, "dead"? Was this a form of deception? Was this a form of miscommunication? Or was it just a form of apathy on the behalf of some recruiter who had to make his or her daily quota of contacts? None of the answers are any more savory than the other and it still should be legal to inflict significant physical pain on those promoting its practice.
Deliberate misdirection, aka 'search engines built by the lowest bidder'. Here's an all too common occurrence one stumbles over when searching some recruiter's websites: Type in, for instance, the query: "Oman Geologist Jobs Oil and Gas" and you are immediately steamrolled by a swarm of such jobs as Sr. Reservoir Engineer (Simulation), Assistant Quarry Manager or Oil & Gas Tax Attorney (which require, in order, a Bachelors of Science Degree in mining, Bachelors of Engineering or a fucking Law Degree). Real fun can be had by including the term "Senior"; so you too can be the proud recipient of jobs for Sr. Python Coordinators, Sr. Cloud Architects and other such senior idiocies that shouldn't have a senior anything. C'mon people, I may be a somewhat crotchety old phart, but if we can put a man on the moon (snort), one would think that some clever dick could figure a decent website-based search engine that wouldn't waste everyone's time and dilute their efforts. And keep off my lawn.
Now here we go from the profoundly irritating to the downright illegal:
Recruitment consultants in (and for) the UAE that are breaking the law by charging people looking for work, in the midst of a job shortage caused by the global financial slowdown. Firms based in Dubai and Sharjah have been found to be illegally demanding payment of as much as Dh400 (US$110) during the recruitment process for "registration" and "job arrangement" from applicants, and one especially pernicious is the site: "www.Jobsindubai.com". Yep, you schmucks, I'm calling you out by name.
"As per the UAE Ministry of Labour, it is illegal to take fees from candidates, and online recruitment companies or recruitment agencies that do so are violating the law," Article 18 of the UAE Labor law states "no licensed employment agent or labor supplier shall demand or accept from any worker, whether before or after the latter's admission to employment, any commission or material reward in return for employment, or charge him for any expenses thereby incurred, except as may be prescribed or approved by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs".
Immoral, illegal and probably not good for your lymphatic system. And they wonder why recruiters sometimes are plastered with expletives and expired produce.
Yet another favorite tactic by some recruiters who should be rounded up, dipped in stale beer and cracker crumbs to be pecked to death by ducks: Sending speculative jobs, which do not match candidate’s profile, with the entreaty to "Please send this along to any colleagues that might fit the position". "If you're not the right fit for this position, but you know somebody who is, please feel free to send this opportunity along!" Sure, do I get a finder's fee or kickback for doing your job for you? Rhetorical questions asked without requiring an actual fuck.
Further fun fomented by a faction of fatheads: Continued listing of duplicate jobs. Why? Why is it necessary to list the exact, same and identical position on your website 2, 3 or 5 times? To give the illusion of bulk? To present the faucity that your group has the inside track to the best, not to mention numerous, jobs? Or it is just to piss off potential clients who are forced to scrutinize and compare each job advertisement in order not to miss the one that might be valid? If you are guilty of this, you're doing yourself and your potential clients a disservice. Someone out there might just take umbrage at your attempted deception and nail your head to a coffee table; metaphorically, of course.
And lastly, this charming piece of electronic flotsam: "Free" CV review. No, I don't want your 'free' CV review that will ultimately inform me that my CV scores a 48 out of 100 on your totally subjective CV rating scale and that I need to rush you to brighten my CV, make it irresistible to job advertisers, change the course of civilization for the better and probably ensure whiter teeth in just 10 days. Tell you what, I conducted a little experiment in my copious unemployed free time. I took a generic CV for a mid-career geologist off the web, wonked it around a bit and sent it to 10 different "Free CV services". Each one noted deficiencies, with an aggregate score around one-half of what pegged their particular scale. Not one noted the horrific grammar, the blatant lies, profuse misspellings and juvenile formatting of the damn thing. Sure, I'll send in good money for you to fix that what you can't evidently see that is hiding in plain sight.
Schmucks.
SCAMMERS
Well, now we're two-thirds of the way through this morass of mendacity and meatheadedness and I think my ire and invective are at this time well enough honed to take on that last bastion of bastard bottom-dwellers: Job Scammers. Be forewarned, I am taking names and calling out certain assholes for acting sphincter-like internationally.
You have been warned.
What are the scammers after? First we have to understand what the scammer’s aim is. This can be to get money from you and/or to get your personal details, including bank details, in order to “steal” your identity and either get money from your account or to commit fraud in your name. Charming people, ones where I wouldn't object to substituting them for dumb animals in certain diabolical religious dismemberment rituals.
There are several clades of this particular irritant, although the common denominator of these evolutionary U-turns is to separate you from your money. Pure and simple, it's a cash grab. Call it what you will: phishing, identity theft, spoofing or just plain theft; it's all about the Benjamins (or Sir Robert Bordens or Nikolay Muravyov-Amurskys or Genghis Khans).
Here's a short list of actual idiots of this stripe gleaned from only a week or two's worth of Email (all verbatim):
  1. "We deliver your C.V online direct to the companies with a fee of US$230 only!!. AMADI BONAFIDE ORGANISATION OF NIG.AGENCY (BONA) VENTURES Email:[email protected]"
    Let's see: lousy grammar, ding for cash, suspicious free email provider. Yep, I believe him. Send him a letter bomb.
  2. Indian idiots calling with jobs in the UAE for US$290.
    +1 90 40 4789 5503.
    Yes, I'm calling you out too, you waste of carbon, that's the actual number. According to the UAE Labor Law, it’s is illegal to charge candidates for jobs. Typically, if you get a call from a "John" with a heavy Indian accent, from what appears to be a large warehouse filled to capacity with a thousand other Indian "Johns" yammering at volume into phones. The best course is to condemn them for being liars, quacks and charlatans, hang up and immediately write nasty and pointed articles about them listing their phone number so that others will be forewarned. Job well done.
  3. Another favorite: the job offer from a seeming actually existing company with which you've had no contact nor interview.
    Prime example: MUBADALA OIL AND GAS U.A.E, "[email protected]".
    If you are not interviewed face to face, in person; the job offer is always a scam!
    Never send documents or money to these socially retarded individuals. These can be used by unscrupulous individuals to steal your identity and cause you a world of pain. For further and timely information go to www.scam-job-emails.tk and www.never-wire-money-to-strangers.tk
  4. Some general scammer info:
  1. What to look for scam avoidage:
  1. What you should do:
If someone asks you for money to progress your application: If you receive an unsolicited employment offer or you are unsure about anything connected with the job, contact the authorities immediately. Please do not contact the scammers yourself. And do not send the scammer's Email addresses to the Australian Porn Mafia, Scientology, Amway or Neo-Nazi Nation, no matter how much you think they deserve such treatment. That is, unless you really, really want to...
If it sounds too good to be true, it is. You should be suspicious of any job offer for a position that you are not qualified for, or for a salary that seems unrealistically high. With the severe downturn in the industry please be careful as the scammers are targeting candidates within the sector as being the most vulnerable.
You have been warned and make sure to warn all your friends and colleagues too.
Y'know, I'm not terribly religious, hell, I'm not even a little bit religious; but I do know there's this agency which can, for the lack of a better term, be called 'karma' that will eventually navigate itself through the cosmos and even the score with these scamming jackals. The Oil Patch was the original "Global Community", way before the advent of the Internet, and is even more so now. It may be a huge old world, but it's a tight-knit global Oil Patch.
Somehow, somewhere, someway somebody's going to figure out it was you that fucked him (and his family) over in one of his darkest hours. Retaliation will not be pretty. It may not be of the "up on the roof with the magnum: 9 dead and they blame Marine training" caliber, but if you're the recipient of the wrath of a scorned Oil Patch citizen, you may just wish it was.
Effects:
And they repeat that hiring moratorium because they neglect to see, or fail to recognize, the long-term damage it did to their workforce. Two decades later they woke to the realization that their best executives were all approaching retirement age, with too few mid-career execs being groomed to replace them.
Circle of life in the Oil Patch? Oil prices tank, companies lay off hundreds of thousands, STEM enrollment at university plummets, mid-career pros head to 'more stable' industries and your mentoring, maintaining, and managing experience retires.
Result? Vast skilled labor shortages; 'Boomer Scoot', 'brain drain' leads to undue/unrecognized risk, sketchy prospects and dry holes; project management suffers, due diligence wanes, reserve replacement craters; lower profits, higher losses, a spiral into insolvency...it's happened before...don't let it happen again.

Mockingbird X.0

Imagine if there was one desk that all stories could cross so that, at 4am, a media plan could be decided upon and disseminated where all news outlets coordinated to set the goalposts of debate and hyper focused on specific issues to drive a narrative to control how you vote and how you spend money; where Internet shills were given marching orders in tandem to what was shown on television, printed in newspapers and spread throughout articles on the World Wide Web.
https://i.imgur.com/Elnci0M.png
In the past, we had Operation Mockingbird, where the program was supremely confident that it could control stories around the world, even in instructions to cover up any story about a possible “Yeti” sighting, should it turn out they were real.
https://i.imgur.com/121LXqy.png
If, in 1959, the government was confident in its ability to control a story about a Yeti, then what is their level of confidence in controlling stories, today?
https://i.imgur.com/jQFVYew.png
https://i.imgur.com/ZKMYGJj.png
In fact, we have a recent example of a situation similar to the Yeti. When Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch met on the TARMAC to spike the Hillary email investigation, the FBI was so confident it wasn’t them, that their entire focus was finding the leaker, starting with searching within the local PD. We have documentation that demonstrates the state of mind of the confidence the upper levels of the FBI have when dealing with the media.
https://i.imgur.com/IbjDOkI.png
https://i.imgur.com/NH86ozU.png
The marriage between mainstream media and government is a literal one and this arrangement is perfectly legal.
https://i.imgur.com/OAd4vpf.png
But, this problem extends far beyond politics; the private sector, the scientific community, even advice forums are shilled heavily. People are paid to cause anxiety, recommend people break up and otherwise sow depression and nervousness. This is due to a correlating force that employs “systems psychodynamics”, focusing on “tension centered” strategies to create “organizational paradoxes” by targeting people’s basic assumptions about the world around them to create division and provide distraction.

https://i.imgur.com/74wt9tD.png
In this day and age, it is even easier to manage these concepts and push a controlled narrative from a central figure than it has ever been. Allen & Co is a “boutique investment firm” that managed the merger between Disney and Fox and operates as an overseeing force for nearly all media and Internet shill armies, while having it’s fingers in sports, social media, video games, health insurance, etc.
https://i.imgur.com/zlpBh3c.png
https://i.imgur.com/e5ZvFFJ.png
Former director of the CIA and Paul Brennan’s former superior George Tenet, holds the reigns of Allen & Co. The cast of characters involves a lot of the usual suspects.
https://i.imgur.com/3OlrX7G.png
In 1973, Allen & Company bought a stake in Columbia Pictures. When the business was sold in 1982 to Coca-Cola, it netted a significant profit. Since then, Herbert Allen, Jr. has had a place on Coca-Cola's board of directors.
Since its founding in 1982, the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference has regularly drawn high-profile attendees such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Rupert Murdoch, Barry Diller, Michael Eisner, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Johnson, Andy Grove, Richard Parsons, and Donald Keough.
Allen & Co. was one of ten underwriters for the Google initial public offering in 2004. In 2007, Allen was sole advisor to Activision in its $18 billion merger with Vivendi Games. In 2011, the New York Mets hired Allen & Co. to sell a minority stake of the team. That deal later fell apart. In November 2013, Allen & Co. was one of seven underwriters on the initial public offering of Twitter. Allen & Co. was the adviser of Facebook in its $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp in February 2014.
In 2015, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Time Warner in its $80 billion 2015 merger with Charter Communications, AOL in its acquisition by Verizon, Centene Corporation in its $6.8 billion acquisition of Health Net, and eBay in its separation from PayPal.
In 2016, Allen & Co was the lead advisor to Time Warner in its $108 billion acquisition by AT&T, LinkedIn for its merger talks with Microsoft, Walmart in its $3.3 billion purchase of Jet.com, and Verizon in its $4.8 billion acquisition of Yahoo!. In 2017, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Chewy.com in PetSmart’s $3.35 billion purchase of the online retailer.
Allen & Co throws the Sun Valley Conference every year where you get a glimpse of who sows up. Harvey Weinstein, though a past visitor, was not invited last year.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_%26_Company_Sun_Valley_Conference
Previous conference guests have included Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren and Susan Buffett, Tony Blair, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Allen alumnus and former Philippine Senator Mar Roxas, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, Quicken Loans Founder & Chairman Dan Gilbert, Yahoo! co-founder Jerry Yang, financier George Soros, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch, eBay CEO Meg Whitman, BET founder Robert Johnson, Time Warner Chairman Richard Parsons, Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight, Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell, NBA player LeBron James, Professor and Entrepreneur Sebastian Thrun, Governor Chris Christie, entertainer Dan Chandler, Katharine Graham of The Washington Post, Diane Sawyer, InterActiveCorp Chairman Barry Diller, Linkedin co-founder Reid Hoffman, entrepreneur Wences Casares, EXOR and FCA Chairman John Elkann, Sandro Salsano from Salsano Group, and Washington Post CEO Donald E. Graham, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and Oprah Winfrey.
https://i.imgur.com/VZ0OtFa.png
George Tenet, with the reigns of Allen & Co in his hands, is able to single-handedly steer the entire Mockingbird apparatus from cable television to video games to Internet shills from a singular location determining the spectrum of allowable debate. Not only are they able to target people’s conscious psychology, they can target people’s endocrine systems with food and pornography; where people are unaware, on a conscious level, of how their moods and behavior are being manipulated.
https://i.imgur.com/mA3MzTB.png
"The problem with George Tenet is that he doesn't seem to care to get his facts straight. He is not meticulous. He is willing to make up stories that suit his purposes and to suppress information that does not."
"Sadly but fittingly, 'At the Center of the Storm' is likely to remind us that sometimes what lies at the center of a storm is a deafening silence."
https://i.imgur.com/YHMJnnP.png
Tenet joined President-elect Bill Clinton's national security transition team in November 1992. Clinton appointed Tenet Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council, where he served from 1993 to 1995. Tenet was appointed Deputy Director of Central Intelligence in July 1995. Tenet held the position as the DCI from July 1997 to July 2004. Citing "personal reasons," Tenet submitted his resignation to President Bush on June 3, 2004. Tenet said his resignation "was a personal decision and had only one basis—in fact, the well-being of my wonderful family—nothing more and nothing less. In February 2008, he became a managing director at investment bank Allen & Company.
https://i.imgur.com/JnGHqOS.png
We have the documentation that demonstrates what these people could possibly be doing with all of these tools of manipulation at their fingertips.
The term for it is “covert political action” for which all media put before your eyes is used to serve as a veneer… a reality TV show facade of a darker modus operandum.

It is now clear that we are facing an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever costs. There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply. If the US is to survive, longstanding American concepts of "fair play" must be reconsidered. We must develop effective espionage and counterespionage services and must learn to subvert, sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated means than those used against us. It may become necessary that the American people be made acquainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repugnant philosophy.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3340677/t/cia-operatives-shadowy-war-force/
Intelligence historian Jeffrey T. Richelson says the S.A. has covered a variety of missions. The group, which recently was reorganized, has had about 200 officers, divided among several groups: the Special Operations Group; the Foreign Training Group, which trains foreign police and intelligence officers; the Propaganda and Political Action Group, which handles disinformation; the Computer Operations Group, which handles information warfare; and the Proprietary Management Staff, which manages whatever companies the CIA sets up as covers for the S.A.
Scientology as a CIA Political Action Group – “It is a continuing arrangement…”: https://mikemcclaughry.wordpress.com/2015/08/25/scientology-as-a-cia-political-action-group-it-is-a-continuing-arrangement/
…Those operations we inaugurated in the years 1955-7 are still secret, but, for present purposes, I can say all that’s worth saying about them in a few sentences – after, that is, I offer these few words of wisdom. The ‘perfect’ political action operation is, by definition, uneventful. Nothing ‘happens’ in it. It is a continuing arrangement, neither a process nor a series of actions proceeding at a starting point and ending with a conclusion.

When you consider the number of forces that can be contained within a single “political action group” in the form on a “boutique investment firm,” where all sides of political arguments are predetermined by a selected group of actors who have been planted, compromised or leveraged in some way in order to control the way they spin their message.
https://i.imgur.com/tU4MD4S.png
The evidence of this coordinated effort is overwhelming and the “consensus” that you see on TV, in sports, in Hollywood, in the news and on the Internet is fabricated.
Under the guise of a fake account a posting is made which looks legitimate and is towards the truth is made - but the critical point is that it has a VERY WEAK PREMISE without substantive proof to back the posting. Once this is done then under alternative fake accounts a very strong position in your favour is slowly introduced over the life of the posting. It is IMPERATIVE that both sides are initially presented, so the uninformed reader cannot determine which side is the truth. As postings and replies are made the stronger 'evidence' or disinformation in your favour is slowly 'seeded in.'
Thus the uninformed reader will most likely develop the same position as you, and if their position is against you their opposition to your posting will be most likely dropped. However in some cases where the forum members are highly educated and can counter your disinformation with real facts and linked postings, you can then 'abort' the consensus cracking by initiating a 'forum slide.'
When you find yourself feeling like common sense and common courtesy aren’t as common as they ought to be, it is because there is a massive psychological operation controlled from the top down to ensure that as many people as possible are caught in a “tension based” mental loop that is inflicted on them by people acting with purpose to achieve goals that are not in the interest of the general population, but a method of operating in secret and corrupt manner without consequences.
Notice that Jeffrey Katzenberg, of Disney, who is intertwined with Allen & Co funds the Young Turks. He is the perfect example of the relationship between media and politics.
Katzenberg has also been involved in politics. With his active support of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, he was called "one of Hollywood's premier political kingmakers and one of the Democratic Party's top national fundraisers."
With cash from Jeffrey Katzenberg, The Young Turks looks to grow paid subscribers:

Last week, former DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg’s new mobile entertainment company WndrCo was part of a $20 million funding round in TYT Network, which oversees 30 news and commentary shows covering politics, pop culture, sports and more. This includes the flagship “The Young Turks” program that streams live on YouTube every day. Other investors in the round included venture capital firms Greycroft Partners, E.ventures and 3L Capital, which led the round. This brings total funding for Young Turks to $24 million.
How Hollywood's Political Donors Are Changing Strategies for the Trump Era:
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/hollywood-political-donors-are-changing-strategy-post-trump-1150545
Hollywood activism long has been depicted as a club controlled by a handful of powerful white men: Katzenberg, Spielberg, Lear, David Geffen, Haim Saban and Bob Iger are the names most often mentioned. But a new generation of power brokers is ascendant, including J.J. Abrams and his wife, Katie McGrath, cited for their personal donations and bundling skills; Shonda Rhimes, who held a get-out-the-vote rally at USC's Galen Center on Sept. 28 that drew 10,000 people; CAA's Darnell Strom, who has hosted events for Nevada congresswoman Jacky Rosen and Arizona congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema; and former Spotify executive Troy Carter, who held three fundraisers for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (Carter also was a fundraiser for President Obama).
Soros Group Buys Viacom's DreamWorks Film Library:
https://www.forbes.com/2006/03/17/soros-viacom-dreamworks-cx_gl_0317autofacescan11.html#541a895f1f22
Viacom, after splitting off from Les Moonves Les Moonves ' CBS , still holds Paramount Pictures, and that movie studio in December agreed to acquire DreamWorks SKG, the creative shop founded by the Hollywood triumvirate of Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg (a former exec at The Walt Disney Co.). DreamWorks Animation had been spun off into a separate company.
Now it's time for Freston to make back some money--and who better to do a little business with than George Soros? The billionaire financier leads a consortium of Soros Strategic Partners LP and Dune Entertainment II LLC, which together are buying the DreamWorks library--a collection of 59 flicks, including Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, and American Beauty.
The money you spend on media and junk food and in taxes goes to these groups who then decide how best to market at you so that they decide how you vote by creating a fake consensus to trick into thinking that you want something other than what is best for you; but will inevitably result in more money being funneled to the top, creating further separation between the super rich and the average person. The goal will be to assert creeping authoritarianism by generating outrage against policies and issues they hate. Part of manipulating your basic assumptions is also to use schadenfreude (think canned laughter on TV) against characters who support the cause that might actually do you the most good (which reaffirms and strengthens your confirmation biased along predetermined political lines).

We have a population being taught to hate socialism and love capitalism when the truth is no country is practicing either. These terms are merely disguises for political oligarchies where the collection of wealth is less about getting themselves rich and more about keeping everyone else poor.
What can you guess about the world around you if it turned out that every consensus that was forced on you was fake?
How much money would it take to make it look like 51% of the Internet believed in completely idiotic ideas? Combine shill operations with automation and AI’s, and the cost becomes a good investment relative to the return when measured in political power.
Even the people who are well intentioned and very vocal do not have to consciously be aware that they are working for a political action group. A covert political group will always prefer an unwitting tool to help push their agenda, so that they can remain in the shadows.

MeWe: A trip report

Among the more frequently mentioned G+ alternatives at the Google+ Mass Migration community, and others, is MeWe with over 250 mentions. The site bills itself as "The Next-Gen Social Network" and the "anti-Facebook": "No Ads, No Political Bias, No Spyware. NO BS. It is headed by professed Libertarian CEO Mark Weinstein.
As the site reveals no public user-generated content to non-members, it's necessary to create an account in order to get a full impression. I thought I'd provide an overview based on recent explorations.

Press

There are a few mentions of MeWe in the press, some listed on the company's website, others via web search.

Self-reported articles

The following articles are linked directly from MeWe's Press page:
The page also lists a "Privacy Revolution Required Reading" list of 20 articles all addressing Facebook privacy gaffes in the mainstream press (Wired, TechCrunch, Fortune, Gizmodo, The Guardian, etc.).
There are further self-reported mentions in several of the company's PR releases over the years.

Other mentions

A DuckDuckGo search produces several other press mentions, including:

Technology

This section is a basic rundown of the user-visible site technology.

Mobile Web

The site is not natively accessible from a mobile Web browser as it is overlayed with a promotion for the mobile application instead. Selecting "Desktop View" in most mobile browsers should allow browser-based access.

Mobile App

There are both Android and iOS apps for MeWe. I've used neither of these, though the App store entries note:
Crunchbase cites 209,220 mobile downloads over the past 30 days (via Apptopia), an 80.78% monthly growth rate, from Google Play.

Desktop Web

Either selecting "View Desktop" or navigating with a Desktop browser to https://www.mewe.com your are presented with a registration screen, with the "About", "Privacy Bill of Rights", "MeWe Challenge", and a language selector across the top of the page. Information requested are first and last name, phone or email, and a password. Pseudonymous identities are permitted, though this isn't noted on the login screen. Returning members can use the "Member Log In" button.
The uMatrix Firefox extension reveals no third-party content: all page elements are served from mewe.com, img.mewe.com, cdn.mewe.com, or ws.mewe.com. (In subsequent browsing, you may find third-party plugins from, for example, YouTube, for videos, or Giphy, for animated GIFs.)
The web front-end is nginx. The site uses SSL v3, issued by DigiCert Inc. to Sgrouples, Inc.

Onboarding

The onboarding experience is stark. There is no default content presented. A set of unidentified icons spans the top of the screen, these turn out to be Home, Chats, Groups, Pages, and Events. New users have to, somehow, find groups or people to connect with, and there's little guidance as to how to do this.

Interface

Generally there is a three panel view, with left- and right-hand sidebars of largely navigational or status information, and a central panel with main content. There are also pop-up elements for chats, an omnipresent feature of the site.
Controls display labels on some devices and/or resolutions. Controls do not provide tooltips for navigational aid.

Features

Among the touted features of MeWe are:

Community

A key aspect of any social network is its community. Some of the available or ascertained information on this follows.

Size

Weinstein claims a "million+ following inside MeWe.com" on Twitter.
The largest visible groups appear to have a maximum of around 15,000 members , for "Awesome gifs". "Clean Comedy" rates 13,350, and the largest open political groups, 11,000+ members.
This compares to Google+ which has a staggering, though Android-registrations-inflated 3.3 billion profiles, and 7.9 million communities, though the largest of these come in at under 10 million members. It's likely that MeWe's membership is on the whole more more active than Google+'s, where generally-visible posting activity was limited to just over 9% of all profiles, and the active user base was well under 1% of the total nominal population.

Active Users

MeWe do not publish active users (e.g., MUA / monthly active users) statistics.

Groups

MeWe is principally a group-oriented discussion site -- interactions take place either between individuals or within group contexts. Virtually all discovery is group-oriented. The selection and dynamics of groups on the site will likely strongly affect user experience, so exploring the available groups and their characteristics is of interest.
"MeWe has over 60,000 open groups" according to its FAQ.
The Open groups -- visible to any registered MeWe user, though not to the general public Web -- are browsable, though sections and topics must be expanded to view the contents: an overview isn't immediately accessible. We provide a taste here.
A selection of ten featured topics spans the top of the browser. As I view these, they are:
Specific groups may appear in multiple categories.
The top Groups within these topics have, variously, 15,482, 7,738, 15,482 (dupe), 7,745, 8,223, 8,220, 1,713, 9,527, 2,716, and 1,516 members. Listings scroll at length -- the Music topic has 234 Groups, ranging in size from 5 to 5,738 members, with a median of 59, mean of 311.4, and a 90%ile of 743.5.
Below this is a grid of topics, 122 in all, ranging from Activism to Wellness, and including among them. A selected sample of these topics, with top groups listed members in (parens), follows:
To be clear: whilst I've not included every topic, I've sampled a majority of them above, and listed not an arbitrary selection, but the top few Groups under each topic.

Google+ Groups

The Google Plus expats group seems the most active of these by far.

Political Groups

It's curious that MeWe make a specific point in their FAQ that:
At MeWe we have absolutely no political agenda and we have a very straightforward Terms of Service. MeWe is for all law-abiding people everywhere in the world, regardless of political, ethnic, religious, sexual, and other preferences.
There are 403 political groups on MeWe. I won't list them all here, but the first 100 or so give a pretty clear idea of flavour. Again, membership is in (parentheses). Note that half the total political Groups memberships are in the first 21 groups listed here, the first 6 are 25% of the total.

It seems there is relatively little representation from the left wing, or even the centre, of the political spectrum. A case-insensitive match for "liberal" turns up:
Mainstream political parties are little represented, though again, the balance seems skewed searching on "(democrat|republic|gop)":
The terms "left" and "right" provide a few matches, not all strictly political-axis aligned:
Socialism and Communism also warrant a few mentions:
And there are some references to green, laboulabor parties:

Conclusion

Whilst there may not be a political agenda, there does appear to be at least a slight political bias to the site. And a distinctive skew on many other topical subjects.
Those seeking new homes online may wish to take this into account.
