Google: Modern Tech’s Answer to the Soviet Union

How dare you blow the whistle on Google? Retaliation? Google Whistleblower Claims FBI, SWAT, Bomb Squad Appeared at His Home.

“They got inside the gate, the police, and they started banging on my door… And so the police decided that they were going to call in additional forces. They called in the FBI, they called in the SWAT team. And they called in a bomb squad,” Vorhies told Project Veritas.

“From what I’ve understood from other attorneys, they are trying to establish that I’ve got some sort of mental problem in order to make their case easier. This is a large way in which they intimidate their employees that go rogue on the company,” he explained.

Which is straight out of the playbook of the USSR. (Hat tip to Doug Ross.)

Why I Won’t Live in an HOA, Part 327

Homeowner’s Associations are evil, for the most part. Howell veteran fights back after being denied an American flag pole at his home.

A veteran wants to display a flagpole in his yard. The HOA doesn’t approve. So he’s putting it to a vote of the residents. (He needed a 125 signatures to get a vote, he got 164, because he doesn’t want anyone complaining.)

“As a veteran I should be able to fly the flag and I should be able to put it at half-staff,” Burtt said during an earlier interview. “It is very important to me because we only do it for public officials and those who died in the line of duty. I felt that we should show respect for these guys, they are the heroes who gave us our freedom that we have today.”

Covenants and Restrictions, even if there is no HOA, are also the sign of insanity.

Google Calls Orthodox Jew a Nazi

In what has to be THE most bone-headed view of the year (maybe of the century)… Google Calls Ben Shapiro A Nazi.

In a Facebook post, Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, described the email as “UNBELIEVABLE.” Shapiro is a practicing Orthodox Jew and a graduate of a Yeshiva high school.

What they really mean is, “Ben Shapiro doesn’t agree with us, and we can’t counter his arguments, so let’s just censor him.”

The best quote comes from Rep. Dan Crenshaw, see the link below, where he asks, “What kind of education do the people at Google have?” To label an Orthodox Jew, who is routinely attacked by the alt-right, a Nazi is the stupidest position Google has had in a long time. And that is saying something.

The video of Rep. Crenshaw is worth the 5 minutes of your time. Watch – Rep. Dan Crenshaw Slams Big Tech for Classifying Jewish Conservatives as ‘Nazis’.

So the first thing to do, is stop using Google. DuckDuckGo is a fine search engine, and handles most of my web searches. I still have 2 email addresses that are Gmail. (one is tied to this blog), but I will be changing that in the very near future. (I have several other email providers, aside from Google. If anyone has a candidate they like, please leave a comment.)

The IRS Loses to True The Vote

The IRS was used – under the Obama Administration – to target conservative groups. True the Vote Wins Stunning Court Ruling Against IRS in Lois Lerner Scandal.

The IRS was sued by True The Vote for discrimination based on their political viewpoint. (They weren’t crazy liberals, the folks running the IRS couldn’t stand that.)

The judge awarded True The Vote an enhanced attorneys’ fees payment from the IRS.

Judge Walton also ruled that True the Vote is entitled to a “bad faith enhancement” to its requested attorney’s fees. Judge Walton’s opinion held there is “clear and convincing evidence necessary for a finding of bad faith on the part of [the IRS]” in their discrimination against True the Vote. While the exact amount to be awarded is still pending, True the Vote’s application under the Equal Access to Justice Act requested the recovery of $1.9 million in attorneys’ fees.

“This ruling is a victory for all Americans,” says Engelbrecht. “Government cannot be allowed to run roughshod over the Constitutional rights of American citizens.”

The other interesting thing is that there is absolutely NO MENTION of this story in the Mainstream American Media. Media bias? What media bias?

SJWs Hate Mel Brooks

And in particular they hate Blazing Saddles. Now, They’re Coming for Mel Brooks.

You knew it was bound to happen.

Now, four decades after it was released, the film has come under fire by social justice warriors because of its portrayal of white racism as comedy. Indeed, it’s hysterically funny.

Time to buy a copy while you still can. (Hat tip to Pirate’s Cove.)

San Francisco Is Becoming a 3rd-world City in More Ways Than One

Nothing says “third-world-shithole” like a police state. LIBERAL FASCISM: San Francisco police raid home of journalist to find who leaked Adachi report. (All the human excrement around the city doesn’t make things better.)

If Bill Barr were sending FBI agents to raid journalists’ homes in search of leakers, we’d be told that the Fourth Reich had descended on America. (Updated because there are statutory protections in California.)

But this is the Liberal Fantasy Land of San Francisco.

Welcome to the Police State. (Hat tip to The Other McCain.)
