The Extraordinary Political Bias and Corruption Scandal at Wikipedia

Wikipedia accused of corruption

Editor comments:

Because I thought that a user updated #encyclopedia like #Wikipedia was a great idea, I financially supported the Wikipedia organisation with a small monthly contribution.

That is, until I became suspicious of the (political) bias that was becoming more and more evident especially on those pages detailing currently controversial material. That was it. No more Wikipedia for me and no more donations. I am sure #George_Soros will be happy to pick up the slack.

It wasn’t long before I started seeing posts by others confirming my suspicions about a Wikipedia agenda to manipulate the data on their web site to suit their political bias.

Wikipedia can no longer be trusted to tell the truth. Students should NOT quote Wikipedia articles as references in their essays.

The article below puts it all concisely in a nutshell. How disappointing that such a good idea was, in the end, manipulated to become a tool to further a political agenda.

The Extraordinary Political Bias and Corruption Scandal at Wikipedia

Wikipedia has been caught in a massive information fiddling operation by Craig Murray, one of Britain’s most respected journalists. It’s a very big deal, and it’s going to get a lot bigger.

Russia Insider is also the victim of endless manipulation of their Wikipedia page at the hands of ‘#globalists’.

by Eric Zuesse

The latest report about Wikipedia’s corruption comes from the great investigative journalist #Craig_Murray, who had been in the UK’s Foreign Service from 1984-2004 and who was forced out in 2004 because, having been since 2002 UK’s Ambassador to Uzbekistan, he decided to whistle-blow instead of to accept the corruption by his own and Uzbekistan’s Governments.

The big vaccine-autism lie

The greatest lie ever told

Editor comments:

The conclusion my wife and I came to way back in 1971, when our first born was scheduled for ‘his shots’ by the #MedicalMafia, was that man-made vaccines were inherently #unsafe and likely highly #toxic and dangerous to his health and well being.

We have stood by this decision ever since. Now, of course, so much information is available to those who seriously research the matter of #vaccine_safety must come to that same conclusion in spite of what #BigPharma and #bought governments would like us to believe.

The only valid conclusion is crystal clear: Vaccines are not safe and pose a grave danger to health.

Read on to see what Jon Rappoport reports on the current state of play in the continuing vaccine debate.

SHOCKING GLOBAL CONTROL SYSTEM EXPOSED

shocking global control system

By

These are indeed very interesting times in which we’re living. It seems like many of the threads that I’ve been following for so many years are starting to coalesce into a clearer picture of an imminent dystopia reminiscent of Sky Net in The Terminator.

The first post that I ever made to this site about Serco was back in 2011 and I’ve been writing about the Global Information Grid and the Internet of Things for several years – more lately, due to the ongoing roll-out of the 5G network. I’ve also been writing about the Anglosphere and the 5 Eyes alliance for joint cooperation in signals intelligence between Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US. I’d never clearly connected all of these processes until now because I didn’t understand how Serco is the corporate glue that’s used to merge all of the above into one Big Data behemoth that is the backbone of the Global Information Grid and Internet of Things.

Julian Assange is in immense danger

Julian Assange to be silenced by the US

Altnews editor comments:

If there ever was better proof of the US and UK governments interfering in the business of a sovereign country then this must be it.

#Ecuador appears to be under immense pressure to hand over Julian Assange, first to the UK authorities who, in turn, would do the US’ bidding and quickly whisk Julian away on to some secret jail in the US or maybe even #Guantanamo Bay, where he could be held without access to justice for the rest of his life.

Abducting #Wikileaks editor Julian Assange to the US would set an extremely dangerous precedent that should fill the hearts and minds of every self respecting journalist with mortal fear. And every freedom loving blogger and self publisher will be at even greater risk.

The effect will be that those journalists who have a family to feed and a mortgage to pay will obediently parrot the #official_narrative.

Everybody loses…

Apologies for Not Posting

My sincere apologies for not posting over the last week or so.

In addition to running this web site, I also manage and administer a number of other web sites, most of which are powered by older versions of the #Drupal CMS.

Recently a serious security vulnerability was discovered in the Drupal software forcing me to TAKE DOWN those sites affected.

Drupalgeddon 2
Drpalgeddon 2 – Click image to read article on TheHackerNews.com

This seminal moment forced my hand to immediately implement upgrades and #CMS replacements that had been in the planning for some time. A job that requires 100% attention to detail.

You will imagine that I have had little time for anything else.

But I should be back soon as there is just so much vitally interesting news to share with my audience.

Thank you for your understanding, interest and patience.

Open letter to Mark Zuckerberg: „Stop lying!”

open letter to zuckerberg

Altnews editor’s comment:

An in-depth critique of Mark Zuckerberg’s hearing before the US Congress by one of the privacy industry expert insiders Cliqz.com dots the I s and crosses the T s and presents some eye opening statistics.

That Facebook (and Google and Youtube, etc.) are probably evil would meet with general agreement after reading this post.

To take your privacy back from these evil players on the Internet you would be well advised to install browser software (and extensions) that is especially designed to do just that: protect your privacy.

While there are a number of options available out there, I have been test-driving the Cliqz browser with the Ghostery extension for some time both on the desktop and on the mobile. While I have not examined the data-stream between the browser and the Internet, the Cliqz browser has restored my confidence that my Internet activities are private as they should be.

Both Cliqz and Ghostery are available as extensions for other web browsers like Firefox and Google Chrome so you can stay on familiar territory but now in the knowledge that your data is safe.

The #Facebook CEO claims to know nothing about shadow profiles. We at #Cliqz consider this statement to be not very credible and ask him to respect everyone’s privacy in an open letter.

Facebook co-founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook co-founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill April 11, 2018 in Washington, DC. This is the second day of testimony before Congress by Zuckerberg, 33, after it was reported that 87 million Facebook users had their personal information harvested by Cambridge Analytica, a British political consulting firm linked to the Trump campaign.

At a hearing before the #US_Congress Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that he did not know anything about shadow profiles. Cliqz now confronts him with this obvious lie in an open letter that has appeared in leading German and European media today:

DEAR MARK ZUCKERBERG,

Some lawmakers embarrassed themselves when they questioned you in front of the US Congress. It was a bit like watching one‘s grandparents trying to be cool on social media. At times the ladies and gentlemen there seemed a little out of their depth, there were a few awkward moments – in fact the entire event could have been quite amusing, and you and your shareholders had every reason to feel relieved.

However, upon a closer look, none of it was funny. What you told the world was a lie. You evaded the question about the fact that Facebook has us all under #surveillance, regardless of whether we are actually signed up to Facebook or not by claiming some obscure “security purposes”. That is one conscious aspect of your business model which is not funny at all.

Let us look forward to a better future. You have told the media that this is what you intend to do. You have been given a chance to do things better. Keep your word! Prove that you really intend to implement the changes to your company you have promised to the public. Show your users some respect – and respect everyone’s privacy.

AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW PRIVACY WORKS, ASK US. WE’RE REALLY GOOD AT IT.

Dr.-Ing. Marc Al-Hames

Zuckerberg’s statements are not very trustworthy

With the #Cambridge_Analytica scandal, Facebook came into the public eye as one of the actors of the otherwise covert #surveillance_economy. At first glance, users of the major Internet platforms only see a social network, a search engine, a map service, a video portal. In the background, however, data is collected and turned into money. It was long overdue that the data collection practice of Facebook – representing all major advertising-funded Internet giants – was put to the test.

Asked about #shadow_profiles by Congressman Ben Lujan, Zuckerberg said: “I’m not familiar with that.” Shadow profiles are the data that Facebook collects and stores even about those Internet users who never signed up to Facebook or who deliberately left the network. The founder of the Social Network allegedly knows nothing about this practice? Pretty unlikely!

Zuckerberg actually knows very well that Facebook’s tracking scripts are integrated into thousands of websites. They even allow Facebook to see what we are all doing outside its platform. This data is an essential part of their business model. The information reveals a lot about what we want to buy or where we will travel to – ideal for targeting for marketing purposes.


Facebook tracks nearly 30% of global website traffic, as a study by Cliqz and #Ghostery shows. The evaluation of “only” one third of all the websites we visit is enough to know more about us than our closest relatives do: whether we have debts, suffer from a serious illness, cheat on our partner, look for a new job, and what political attitudes and sexual preferences we have – our Internet history reveals it all.

This is how privacy works!

Cliqz respects and protects your privacy. The anti-tracking technology built into our Cliqz and Ghostery browser products reliably prevents you from being tracked across the web. Tracking scripts are either blocked from the outset or the personal data they request is replaced by a generic placeholder. With this combination of blocklist-based anti-tracking and the #AI-powered removal of user identifiers, Cliqz is the innovation leader.

In addition, Cliqz only stores strictly anonymous, merely statistical data on its servers without any reference to individual users. This anonymous statistical data is the foundation of our independent web index, used by our quick search engine that is built into the Cliqz Browser, among others. Nevertheless, Cliqz is able to individualize services. But all data related to individual users always remain on the user’s device, in their possession and under their control. This client-side data aggregation is the privacy-friendly counter model to storing profiles on servers in data centers.

Cliqz’s business model MyOffrz also follows the principle “the browser knows everything, we know nothing”: Cliqz users see attractive offers based on the websites they visit and the search queries they enter. The matching of interests and offers takes place locally in the browser on the user’s device; no data related to individual users is sent to the Cliqz servers. This innovative technology, called Browser-based Performance Marketing, is a proof of concept for a consistently privacy-friendly business model of the future. It proves that no profiles need to be stored on servers to build an ad-based business model.

Let’s see Facebook & Co. do that!

Snowden: Facebook is tracking me even though I am not on Facebook.

Snowden: Facebook is tracking me even though I am not on Facebook.

Altnews editor comment:

It requires me to be constantly alert that my web sites and blog posts do not give #Facebook, #Google and others  the opportunity to track and spy on my visitor’s Internet activity.

I see so many of those offending web sites where the webmaster has, mostly innocently, installed code to allow visitors to like and/or share their post on social media and:

Kaboom…

Facebook and Google immediately install a cookie on your device that allows them to spy on every move you make, pages you visit, text you type into (comment, registration and order) forms and search terms you may use. They record your location, time of day and often also the URL and content of every other tab you may have open in your web browser.

Surely this is the work of the Devil? In anyone’s language and everyone’s creed?

My next job is to scan every blog post I copy into one of my posts for the like of the above mentioned devilish spying code. For the time being I cannot guarantee that I will catch them all.

But when you install the fabulous #Open Source  #Ghostery add-on in your web browser at least you will be protected from data stealing spies at your end and on your device.

So, If I have peaked your interest and curiosity do read on to learn more about what the #Technocracy is doing to build a massive profile on you. They know you better than you know yourself IF you let them get away with it.

One of YouTube’s Chickens Has Come Home To Roost

Nasime Sabz videos and aura

Altnews editor’s comments:

It is no surprise to this writer that Youtube’s recent censorship clampdown on material THEY don’t agree with was going to stir people, some vehemently.

We see it all around the internet how angry content creators and video bloggers are with #youtube. They are especially angry about the heavy handed, dictatorial and absolute manner in which youtube has simply cut their income potential to pennies and effectively leaving many of them destitute simply by demonetising their channels or even permanently deleting them.

While youtube may argue that those actions were initiated in response to complaints about someone breaching community standards appears to have some merit, on the surface anyway. But once you realise that any mean and angry troll can lodge a complaint with youtube and that most of youtube employed ‘moderators’ have been selected also on the basis of their political leanings and you realise what a seriously dangerous situation youtube has created for itself.

In addition, youtube further fuels the anger of people by NOT providing reasonable and timely dispute resolution options to the affected parties. You can count yourself lucky if you get an email reply at all from this technocracy behemoth.

So it comes as no surprise that someone would decide to retaliate. Of course many have, through blog posts and vlogs on other platforms and with the help af sympathetic website editors.

Most would have expected that such extreme retaliation would in the first instance come from some gun toting, extreme right wing nationalist  but hey, it appears the left also has its own extreme activists. That such would be a pro vegan, animal rights activist is a real pity until we realise that some of those are just as extreme as their right wing pro hunting comrades for example.

So it saddens me that the very first of Google’s chickens to come home to roost was in fact a vegan animal and fitness activist, who also happens to be a national of a country that is on the US’ official ‘candidates for regime change’ list. The plot thickens.

But before we stray too far of the topic here, lets have a look at the article penned by well known colleague warrior

Socialism, Privacy And Charity For The Powerful. Capitalism, Surveillance And Rugged Individualism For The Powerless.

Altnews editor’s comment: Our favourite rogue journalist contributor, Caitlin Johnstone, masterfully describes the status quo of the rule by the plutocracy we are all subject to today but fails to call the spade a spade.

So it is up to us to follow the (all that) money trail to try and determine who the architects of this trend and ambition to achieve absolute world power may be.

Unsurprisingly to some, at the top of this obscene pile of money we find some well known albeit secretive individuals and families who cleverly manage to stay out of the limelight time and time again but their wealth and their power is immense.

In fear of being branded a conspiracy theorist by the (some very well paid) detractors, we are not going to name names here suffice to say that unsurprisingly these same individuals and families are also the driving forces behind the oft hinted at New World Order (#NWO), who also lobbied for and financed the #UN and who, unsurprisingly, also own and control the wealthiest and most powerful multinational corporations such as the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex, #BigMedia, #BigBanks, #BigPharma, #BigChem, #BigAg and #BigFood. Their tentacles reach into the deepest recesses of our world and seem to have just about everyone in a stranglehold.

But let’s see what colour Caitlin has to add:
