Israel Adam Shamir - biography Will you ever see this bio, my reader? The chances are not great. Wikipedia controls the bio market; Google delivers Wikipedia’s version to the multitudes. And Wikipedia and Google are controlled by the people I fight against for many years. These guys do not pretend they are fair. My Wiki... Read More
See also: Is VDARE.COM "White Nationalist"? One of the things we have to deal with on a regular basis—like taking out the trash—is answering attacks on us. This is our answer to the current Wikipedia item about VDARE.com. Wikipedia has developed from its earlier wildness to a relatively useful general reference on uncontroversial matters. However,...

Over the course of my life I have watched integrity shrivel up and die everywhere in the Western world. It is not like it was ever really abundant, but there was a goodly amount of it, and it had authority. People, especially those in public life, weren’t shameless as they are today. In the past...

Have you ever wondered how all those Wikipedia articles get produced … you know, the ones you pull up on your phone to look up an actor, an author, or a recipe, or a historical or scientific fact?

Assange is charged with being in a conspiracy with Manning “to commit computer intrusion.” The charge is not that Assange succeeded in hacking a government computer and obtaining classified information. It... Read More
Yesterday (April 10, 2019) a reader alerted me to the fact that I am being smeared on Wikipedia as a “vocal supporter of the current Russian government and its policies.” The reader also reports that an article in the Daily Beast calls me a “Putin worshiper.” The reader says that he tried to edit the...

Recently, all Wikipedia pages in German, Danish, Czech and Slovak were blacked out. This wasn’t a technical error. It was Wikipedia’s protest against the European Parliament for once doing something debatably useful: updating copyright laws to stop people from stealing digital intellectual content. [Why Four Versions of Wikipedia Have Deliberately Gone Dark, By David Meyer,... Read More
Dealing with Wikipedia.
————————— The first thing I noticed about my Wikipedia page, when someone directed my attention to it, was that they got my name wrong, there in the very first line! Not the spelling — they at least managed to get that right — but the pronunciation. Their rendering in the International Phonetic Alphabet is /... Read More
In the art of surveillance, there is a cunning ploy familiar to the readers of Le Carre: the target is followed by a clumsy gumshoe; he discovers he is being tailed, easily shakes the tail off and goes on, feeling secure and unobserved. Unbeknownst to him, there are other detectives who stick to him like... Read More
