Earlier: Ellen K. Pao In Jeff Bezos' WASHINGTON POST On Elon Musk: We Must "Prevent Rich People From Controlling Our Channels Of Communication" As a Twitter shareholder of record since late 2018, when the stock was trading around $28 per share, I am naturally delighted by Elon Musk’s dramatic $54.20 per share takeover of the...

Like Westbrook Pegler, I’m a member of the rabble in good standing. So when I want to hang out with my kind, I click into the comboxes under my articles, or consider carefully emails about them. I did this after Unz.com reposted my VDARE.com piece on the Indians who control Big Tech, who have become... Read More
I don’t want to give advice, but it does seem to me that patriotic Russians going out and breaking up these protests would look a lot better than the cops doing mass arrests. But it’s just a few women and weak faggots anyway, so patriotic Russians are more likely to just laugh than view them... Read More
It’s one thing when journalists want people deplatformed. Countless articles and columns are veiled demands for censorship. It’s far more serious coming from the White House. Spotify recently posted warning labels on episodes of Joe Rogan’s podcasts about COVID-19. “So, this disclaimer, it’s a positive step,” said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “but we...

The biggest threat to our feeble and frail democracy, the most looming danger to the sacredness of our weak values, is a stoned wop who just talks to random people about whatever he’s thinking about at the time.
You may recall a war between Alex Jones and Joe Rogan, which was known as “World War Jones” and lesserly known as “Uncle Jones’ War.” Alex Jones won that war when Joe Rogan surrendered. Now, Joe Rogan is embattled in yet another World War situation, this one entitled World War Rogan. Tucker Carlson had a... Read More

Earlier: “Blacks With Brains”— Indian Leftists Show Downside Of Merit-Based Immigration Last November, a 37-year-old Indian immigrant you’ve never heard of became Chief Executive Officer of Twitter. His name is Parag Agrawal, a tongue-twisting moniker not as tongue-twisting, fortunately, as that of Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, the Indian who ran the Kwik-E-Mart on The Simpsons. Unfortunately, Agrawal... Read More
President Joe Biden issued a stark order to Big Tech this week: “I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets. Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that's on your shows. It has to stop” [Remarks by President Biden at Virtual Meeting on Military Deployments Supporting Hospitals for the COVID-⁠19 Response,... Read More
Honestly, I always felt bad for @jack. I don’t think he really ever wanted to be a part of this weird shit. I think he was a normal old school Silicon Valley guy who believed in the original idea of the internet – which was that total freedom would inevitably lead to the best possible... Read More
This column is Part 3 of a 3-part series. Read Part 1, “Big Tech’s Financial Terrorism And Social Excommunication” and Part 2, “Justice Thomas’ Solution to Big Tech’s Social And Financial Excommunication.” ** It is inarguable that by financially crippling and socially segregating, and banishing politically irksome people and enterprises—the Big Tech cartel is flouting...

This column is Part 2 of a 3-part series. Read Part 1, "Big Tech's Financial Terrorism And Social Excommunication.” PAYPAL HOLDINGS, Inc, is an indispensable, American, global corporation, without whose services, financially transacting online is difficult. The company is worth $16.929 billion. The worthless Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is a meddlesome shakedown operation, in the mold... Read More
After Rand Paul this week came out effectively calling for a Derp Revolution, he was given a suspension by YouTube for different comments he made earlier in the month about masks. Responding to the ban, Paul said: How can they be a private company and also a monopoly big enough to be the arbiter of... Read More

Let’s begin with good news. Resplendent August, the last summer month, has blessed the North! The sun is shining, the lakes are still warm enough for swimming, the mushrooms are ready for picking, the wild raspberries are crimson and sweet, the ginger Bambi fawns frolic in the forest as it reaches up to our summer...

Republican solutions to Big Tech tyranny do not begin to address financial de-platforming, the cancellation of citizen dissidents en masse, including the infringement of the right to partake in the public square and make a living. In their weak case against Deep Tech (“Deep” to denote enmeshment with The State), Republicans are still defending only... Read More
People maybe didn’t really understand the gravity of PayPal saying that it is going to begin sharing all of its records with the Anti-Defamation League. We’re so used to all of these tech companies asking “how high?” when the Jews say “jump” that we’ve become jaded. Too jaded to grasp the gravity of that announcement.... Read More

In early May, the announcement that Bill and Melinda Gates would be divorcing after twenty-seven years of marriage shocked both those that praise and those that loathe the “philanthropic” power couple. Less than a week after the initial announcement of the divorce, on May 7, the Daily Beast reported that Melinda Gates had allegedly been... Read More
This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists. There is little sympathy for academics among conservatives, and I understand why. Tenured academics have job security unparalleled anywhere but in government jobs, and spend most of their time either indoctrinating students... Read More
AS A COINAGE GOES, DEEP TECH is superior to the Big-Tech term. It better captures the deforming power and tentacular reach into state and civil society of the high-tech monopolists. That reach notwithstanding, many libertarian-minded and “small-government conservatives” (a contradiction in terms, considering the national debt is $28 trillion) have been stalwart defenders of the...

Big Tech’s moves to muscle President Donald Trump off social media have been heralded by some as victory. But a corporate-run state with politicians serving as mere figureheads amounts to the very fascism they claim to oppose. The smug, palpable air of ‘mission accomplished’ emanating from Facebook, Twitter and Google in the weeks after the... Read More
By day, Chad Loder is a super-millionaire tech capitalist and former federal contractor who led the team that designed cyber security software currently used by US government agencies. By night, he is a self-proclaimed anarcho-communist Twitter troll who helps dox working class Trump supporters and provides "mutual aid" to those on the ground beating them... Read More
By moving in “the same circles as her father” and vowing to “work only on things involving Israel,” Isabel Maxwell became a pivotal liaison for the entry of Israeli intelligence-linked tech firms into Silicon Valley with the help of Microsoft’s two co-founders, Paul Allen and Bill Gates. This is Part II of the series “The... Read More
Dr. Sarah Cody, Santa Clara County Health Officer
Dr. Sarah Cody. That's the name of a local government employee probably unknown to almost everyone reading this. Yet I think there's a good chance that a million or more Americans will owe her their lives. And therein lies a tale... Last Tuesday President Donald Trump announced that he expected to lift most health restrictions... Read More

While protesters in Hong Kong fly American flags and rip down security cameras, an even more insidious Chinese-style “social credit” system is solidifying in the United States [Hong Kong Protesters Wave U.S. Flags, Urge Trump to Take Action, by Owen Franks, Bloomberg, August 31, 2019]. The Trump Administration is considering an alliance with Big Tech... Read More
San Jose, 2013
Last month in Saigon, I hung out with my friend of 40-years, Giang. We were freshmen together at Andrew Hill High School in San Jose, then I had to move to Virginia to escape my psychotic stepmother. A screaming machine, she’s still daily enraged, I’m sure. A horrible marriage will do that. In the late... Read More

See also: Turkeys Vote For Christmas—GOP Votes To Import Leftist Indian Overclass (And Also Depress Tech Wages) The House of Representatives recently passed H.R.1044, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. It’s now in the Senate’s Judiciary committee and could be voted on by the full Senate by September. Javanka is said to favor it, so... Read More

“The U.S. government discriminates ‘against genius’ and ‘brilliance’ with its immigration system,” asserted President Trump, as he rolled out Jared Kushner’s immigration plan. The president has insisted that "companies are moving offices to other countries because our immigration rules prevent them from retaining highly skilled and even … totally brilliant people." While it’s true that... Read More

"If the tax reform bill goes through, do you plan to increase your company's capital investment?" The question was posed to a sizeable group of CEOs at The Wall Street Journal's CEO Council, in the presence of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn. A pitiful show of hands failed to wipe the smirk off Mr.... Read More
“More than 100 companies, including most of high-tech’s biggest names,” have threatened to “move jobs outside the United States,” unless they get their way. What do they want? They want President Trump to give up on “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” the POTUS’s Executive Order, currently being refined to... Read More
There’s way more in common between Wall Street and Silicon Valley than meets the untrained eye
Wall Street and Silicon Valley are two of the key strategic hubs of hyperpower global domination. The others are the industrial-military-surveillance-security complex – of which Hollywood and corporate media are the soft power extensions – and the petrodollar racket/tributary system. Silicon Valley has been relentlessly constructed and idolized as a benign myth; technology breaking the... Read More

As a software developer and company co-founder who has lived in Palo Alto since the early 1990s, I understand the extraordinarily important contribution that immigrants have made to our technology industry over the last half century and the crucial role they play in maintaining American competitiveness. I've found it unfortunate that for years top Silicon... Read More
How much silicon is there in Silicon Valley? Not much, if we are talking super-pure monocrystalline silicon, which is the high-end material driving the digital revolution. As with countless other advanced materials these days, most of the world’s semiconductor-grade silicon comes from Japan (yes, Japan Inc has kept on trucking even if this is rarely... Read More
Flash memory has now become the norm for hard disk drives in tablets and laptops. Manufactured in East Asia, it is a globally traded commodity much like oil or copper. The East Asian ex-factory price for a standard 16-gigabyte unit recently was less than $10. Which raises a question: how come Apple’s price is more... Read More
Silicon Valley is a famously eclectic place but even by Silicon Valley standards, Caroline Dowling had an unusual start in life. The daughter of a truck driver, she got pregnant at 15, and never finished high-school. She went on to do bartending and housework in her native Ireland, before launching herself on a business career... Read More
