Elon Musk could seize Twitter TODAY as talks reach 'final stages'

Elon Musk is closing in on seizing Twitter as talks between the Tesla magnate and the tech giant entered their final stages, reports say. The billionaire could take over the company as soon as this morning as the board reportedly looked set to accept his offer of $54.20 per share. The tycoon's representatives were said to be hammering out terms including a timeline and fees if an agreement was signed and then fell apart. The two sides were reportedly working into the early morning to finalize the 'fluid and fast-moving' negotiations. Twitter shares soared by four per cent as the markets opened to $50.84 a share amid reports it would be seized by Musk. It comes a fortnight after the entrepreneur first sought to woo shareholders with his $54.20-per-share bid. 

You may fall and nobody will be there to get you up!

Major trade groups from key industries are warning that potentially disastrous consequences could result from telecommunications networks phasing out 3G wireless service.

AT&T began shutting down 3G service Tuesday, the first major network to do so with Verizonand T-Mobile soon will be.

A major trade group representing the alarm industry urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday to delay shutting down 3G service, arguing that doing so could potentially force millions of alarm devices to go offline.

“I basically told the White House that you were worried about planes falling out of the sky. How about people dying in their homes?” John Brady, spokesman of the Alarm Industry Communications Committee, told Axios. “Because that’s what’s going to happen. They’re going to think that their device works, they’re going to hit the button, and it’s not going to go anywhere.”

The School Superintendents Union and National Association for Pupil Transportation claimed in an FCC Feb. 14 filing that “upwards of five to ten percent of all public school buses across the country will lose GPS and communications service” if AT&T shuts down service.




Facebook reported a nearly half-million drop in users during the last three months of 2021, with only 1.93 billion users logging in daily. Zuckerberg attributed the decline to the TikTok boom.

Drudge finally 'cancels' WND

Note: Drudge's fate and whereabouts are unknown..........

DrudgeI swear, the five massive strokes I experienced in 2019 were in part due to the tremendous pressure I was under as my business crumbled. Matt Drudge apparently cracked up, too. I know for a fact he has passed the baton and is definitely not "running the show." And, who knows what happened to the late Andrew Breitbart?

It was a good ride.

Drudge and WND. Matt Drudge and Joseph Farah.

They started the internet's news revolution together, friendly and daring, 24 years ago. It took one day, April 26, 2021, to drop the original name, WorldNetDaily, and all links from drudgereport.com. That's when Drudge – or whoever is calling the shots at the DrudgeReport – finally "canceled" WND.


Drudge had a great sense of humor. One day he called me with an idea. He loved Jerome Corsi's new book in 2011 – "Where's the Birth Certificate?" He told me he was going to tease it with a shameless display on his website, pointing to its No. 1 position on Amazon. You might remember he was not afraid of anything or anybody then – not even Barack Obama.

I knew what that would mean: Obama was going to have to RELEASE an actual birth certificate – real or fabricated!

Sure enough, he did. That was the first time I saw the media close ranks against me. They did it with reckless abandon. The most amazing shot across the bow came from Esquire magazine, owned by Hearst, my old employer – in which the "reporter" made up the whole imaginary story about my pulling the Corsi book from bookshelves. It's still there at Amazon 10 years later to make my point. (After the story initially went up, Esquire posted an "update" hoping to cover for its fraud.)

We sued the magazine and received a 2-1 loss before the U.S. Court of Appeals, District of Columbia, Nov. 26, 2013.

But it wasn't the end of the birth certificate story.

Perkins Coie, the international law firm, played "fixer" for Obama. They "found" the birth certificate that could not be found even by the governor of Hawaii. They also showed up later to pull another rabbit out of a hat in directing Joe Biden's "victory" in the 2020 election. You'll be hearing from them again. They're in solid with Obama and Biden.......

MyPillow guy announces brand-new social-media platform

Business Insider reported Lindell announced in an interview on Friday on Charlie Kirk's podcast that the site could launch within a month.

He was deplatformed by Twitter and others for claiming he had evidence of vote fraud and mismanagement in the 2020 presidential election.

"We're launching this big platform so all the voices of our country can come back and start telling it like it is again," he explained. "You will not need YouTube. You won't need these places. So it will be where everything can be told, because we've got to get our voices back."

He released a two-hour video documentary titled "Absolute Proof" making the case that vote fraud affected the outcome of the election. It's available on a website Lindell created.

The New York Times published an article that details how advertisers use online “fingerprinting” to track users with up to 99 percent accuracy, and more importantly, how to prevent it.

The New York Times writes in an article titled “‘Fingerprinting’ to Track Us Online Is on the Rise. Here’s What to Do,” that advertisers are turning to invisible methods to track information about users and discover their identity, a practice that many may find intrusive and worrying. The Times goes on to discuss the rise in this practice and how users can prevent it.    MORE>>>>>>

Now even the word 'Christian' is too hot for YouTube

Many expressions of Christian belief have been censored by YouTube, which is owned by Google.

But on Tuesday, even the word “Christian” ran afoul of the social-media giant.

Chad Robichaux reported an ad for his ministry to veterans was rejected for including the word “Christian.”

Robichaux was instructed to “please remove the unacceptable content to continue.”

Facebook banned a peace-loving quote by St. Augustine of Hippo, a Catholic theologian and philosopher, saying it was “hate speech”.

Yes, really.

Dominic Bettinelli wanted to run a test because two of his priest friends had been punished for posting the quote, only for him to also receive a message that he had violated Facebook’s “Community Standards on hate speech”.


The digital cemetery: When Facebook controls our history

Graphic Studio, France Médias Monde | According to projections from a study by the Oxford Internet Institute, the number of Facebook profiles of deceased people will exceed that of the living at the earliest in 50 years.

The number of Facebook profiles of people who have died may exceed the number of living profiles in just 50 years, according to a new study. As such, the social network could become the keeper of a significant part of humanity’s memory.

The dead will one day take over Facebook. In 50 years, if not sooner, there will likely be more profiles of deceased people than of living users on the social network, according to a study published online by the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) on April 27.

Your "Anonymous" Web Browsing History Totally Isn’t

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comYou might think you’re pretty good at making sure you don’t share your internet life with the entire world. You use Facebook’s strictest privacy settings, don’t share anything sensitive on Twitter, and you regularly trash your laptop’s browsing history. All good, right? Nope. All that “anonymized” data you leave behind out in the ether is still totally you, and it’s far easier than you think to make it paint your picture and yours alone.Journalist Svea Eckert and data scientist Andreas Dewes, both from Germany, wanted to find out just how easy it was to acquire and identify your web browsing history. And so, as The Guardian reports, they did just that.The pair presented their findings recently at the annual Def Con hacker conference in Las Vegas.

Acquiring the data

The two were easily able to acquire a database holding more than 3 billion visited web addresses. That data, in turn, comprised about 9 million unique sites visited by roughly 3 million users, all in Germany.
The data clearly showed the light users — those who visited only a few dozen sites over a 30-day span — from the heavy users, those who had tens of thousands of data points sitting there to be examined.

Eckert and Dewes didn’t even have to pay for the data access, they said. What they did do was create a fake marketing company: They launched a website for the company and a LinkedIn page for its fake CEO.

RELATED: Study: “Anonymous” Credit Card Data Is Actually Completely Identifiable

That fake marketing company claimed to have developed a machine learning algorithm that could improve marketers’ tactics… but only if it was trained with a large amount of data. (This is common: machine learning depends on finding and exploiting patterns, and you need a whole crapton of data points in order to identify those patterns in a meaningful way.).  In short, they used the fake company to go begging. “We wrote and called nearly a hundred companies, and asked if we could have the raw data, the clickstream from people’s lives,” Eckert said.   It took longer than they expected — but only because they were specifically targeting Germany. “We often heard: ‘Browsing data? That’s no problem. But we don’t have it for Germany, we only have it for the US and UK,’” she said.

Eventually, one data broker was willing to help them “test” their “data platform,” and parted with the data trove for free.


‘THE SMOKING GUN’: Google Manipulated YouTube Search Results for Abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg

YouTube Blacklists Pro-Life videos

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

The existence of the blacklist was revealed in an internal Google discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News by a source inside the company who wishes to remain anonymous. A partial list of blacklisted terms was also leaked to Breitbart by another Google source.

In the leaked discussion thread, a Google site reliability engineer hinted at the existence of more search blacklists, according to the source.

“We have tons of white- and blacklists that humans manually curate,” said the employee. “Hopefully this isn’t surprising or particularly controversial.”

Others were more concerned about the presence of the blacklist. According to the source, the software engineer who started the discussion called the manipulation of search results related to abortion a “smoking gun.”

The software engineer noted that the change had occurred following an inquiry from a left-wing Slate journalist about the prominence of pro-life videos on YouTube, and that pro-life videos were replaced with pro-abortion videos in the top ten results for the search terms following Google’s manual intervention.


Does Google spy on you for NSA? Judge says, 'None of your business'

This is from OCTOBER 2011!   The Plain Truth was warning about NSA spying on all America, and ran the following story about the coverup! : Bob Barney


October 13, 2011

Forward: Readers of The Plain Truth know about my theory concerning Microsoft, Google and other "overnight success" businesses, where college kids make billions overnight with flawed products.  For example, Microsoft Windows never works, crashes every day. My theory is that these businesses are really "shell" companies for the USA and the CIA to spy on everyone! Google, (Government Ooggling) is a great example of this theory. This recent news story adds some more fuel to my theory... (Bob Barney- The Plain Truth)

A federal judge has ordered that whether Google is spying for National Security Agency or not, you have no right to know.

"The NSA need not disclose 'the organization or any function of the National Security Agency, [or] any information with respect to the activities thereof,'" U.S. District Judged Richard Leon has ordered.

"Once the agency, through affidavits, has created 'as complete a public record as is possible' and explained 'in as much detail as is possible the basis for its claim,' … 'the court is not to conduct a detailed inquiry to decide whether it agrees with the agency's opinions,'" he said.

Get the book that dedicates a chapter to explaining why Google is evil, in "Stop the Presses! The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution.

The demand for information had been raised by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which said the ruling would be appealed.

Legal attack dog sicked on websites accused of violating R-J copyrights

When it comes to fighting copyright theft in the news industry — the piracy of stories, editorials, columns, photos and videos — there are watchdogs and there are attack dogs.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal and its copyright enforcement partner, a Las Vegas startup called Righthaven LLC, are squarely in the attack-dog category.

In a strategic campaign that is attracting growing interest nationwide in legal and media circles, Righthaven — without warning — has sued at least 86 website owners in federal court in Las Vegas since March for copyright infringement.  read the rest

New Bill Gives Obama ‘Kill Switch’ To Shut Down The Internet

Government would have “absolute power” to seize control of the world wide web under Lieberman legislation

 Bill Gives Obama Kill Switch To Shut Down The Internet 160610top

The federal government would have “absolute power” to shut down the Internet under the terms of a new US Senate bill being pushed by Joe Lieberman, legislation which would hand President Obama a figurative “kill switch” to seize control of the world wide web in response to a Homeland Security directive.

Lieberman has been pushing for government regulation of the Internet for years under the guise of cybersecurity, but this new bill goes even further in handing emergency powers over to the feds which could be used to silence free speech under the pretext of a national emergency.

“The legislation says that companies such as broadband providers, search engines or software firms that the US Government selects “shall immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed” by the Department of Homeland Security. Anyone failing to comply would be fined,” reports ZDNet’s Declan McCullagh.

The 197-page bill (PDF) is entitled Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, or PCNAA.

Technology lobbying group TechAmerica warned that the legislation created “the potential for absolute power,” while the Center for Democracy and Technology worried that the bill’s emergency powers “include authority to shut down or limit internet traffic on private systems.”

The bill has the vehement support of Senator Jay Rockefeller, who last year asked during a congressional hearing, “Would it had been better if we’d have never invented the Internet?” while fearmongering about cyber-terrorists preparing attacks.

The largest Internet-based corporations are seemingly happy with the bill, primarily because it contains language that will give them immunity from civil lawsuits and also reimburse them for any costs incurred if the Internet is shut down for a period of time.

People leaving FACEBOOK in droves - Privacy Concerns

Facebook is to simplify its privacy controls after controversy over its handling of personal information. The number of Facebook users considering deleting their accounts appeared to rise after censure from European data protection officials and critical press coverage prompted several prominent technology commentators to remove their data from the site.  MORE>>>>>>>

Uncle Sam Wants to "Friend" You on FACEBOOK

The Feds are on Facebook. And MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter, too.

U.S. law enforcement agents are following the rest of the Internet world into popular social-networking services, going undercover with false online profiles to communicate with suspects and gather private information, according to an internal Justice Department document that offers a tantalizing glimpse of issues related to privacy and crime-fighting.

Think you know who's behind that "friend" request? Think again. Your new "friend" just might be the FBI.

Does Google Have CIA Ties?

Robert David Steele a former clandestine services case officer for the Central Intelligence Agency says Google and the CIA are “in bed” with one another. He made the remarks on the nationally syndicated Alex Jones radio show.

Steele stated “I think that Google has made a very important strategic mistake in dealing with the secret elements of the U.S. government - that is a huge mistake and I’m hoping they’ll work their way out of it and basically cut that relationship off “.  Steele says he has confirmed this information with his contacts within the agency. The question this raises is who is controlling information that may be seen as controversial?  Is censorship-taking place and how would one go about proving that censorship has taken place?

The Plain Truth Grows!!

By: Bob Barney

The Plain Truth has tripled readership now over the summer. A year ago the majority of our readers came from www.racerap.com , our sister site (stock car racing oriented); which is the 6th largest NASCAR racing website in the world with over 8 million hits per month. During the past four months, the trend for The Plain Truth has become one of readers coming from web searches rather than RaceRap.  Google and Yahoo lead all search engines, but we support neither! We use Atomz and Lejit. The other day, I received the Lijit weekly stats and it was very telling!

How 20 popular websites looked when they launched

Remember the days when the word Google was not interchangeable with internet? Or when every site seemed to have a Netscape icon on it? Or when Flash was still something you cleaned your floor with? Then you were clearly using the web in the mid to late 1990s when pages were rudimentary affairs containing lists of links and information.

Thanks to the waybackmachine internet archive, we're still able to see some of the Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 pioneers looked in their earliest incarnations.

1. google.com - launched in 1996

2. facebook.com - launched in 2004
