Break Free From Microsoft And Google

Dell_XPS_Laptop_FrontIt’s funny really, when you consider how many of us “so called” awake people happily sit here using the internet, totally reliant on Microsoft and Google to control our surfing. And when I say control, I really mean control. We have no idea how much information we are giving these massive globalist corporations each time we start up our laptops, PC’s and smart phones.

Like most people, we are not a single computer household. I have two laptops that I use regularly. The big one that sits on the arm of the sofa to allow me to keep up to date with things, while still being part of the family. This runs on Windows 7, which I still prefer to the awful Windows 8. I use another smaller Acer Travelmate which is far more portable and is usually used at the dinning room table running Windows Vista. My wife, when she can’t get on the “big one” uses a small Acer One net book also on Vista, plus there is this old tower system in the office, which until this week, was really an emergency back up machine running on Windows XP.  Because, as a sort of hobby, I build and repair computers, there are a number of older laptops in the garage which could be used if needed.

Anyway, while laid up with this bug that’s been doing the rounds for the last few months (it was a heavy cold, not Flu, and no, even though work tried their hardest to get me to have the free poison jab, I have survived without it for yet another year), I started thinking about using alternatives to the globalist controlled operating systems browsers and search engines.

Apple is a very good alternative. My daughter, who is both a musician and photographer, uses a 27″ iMac, but that’s in her room, and certainly out of bounds to the likes of me. Plus it’s not exactly “Globalist free” computing, but she needs Photoshop and Logic Pro, so that’s her choice.

So where else do we go? The answer is of course Linux. Always seen as a fringe system, can it really replace the Windows? Well the answer is a big fat yes. I’m sitting here in the office, using a real keyboard, using and old tower with a freshly installed version of Ubuntu 14.10 and it’s brilliant. Blistering fast compared to Windows, and completely Gates free. It is very easy to personalise, comes with the wonderful Firefox browser. There is a non Google version of of Chrome if you really insist, and as for Internet Explorer, who still uses that anyway?

Ubuntu is one of dozens of systems based on the Linux framework. Mint is another good one, or Lubuntu if you really want the old XP experience.

As for a good search engine, again, here there is a lot of choice, but I’ve opted for Duck Duck Go.

OK, this is all very well, but what about software. Microsoft Office is still the market leader, but that, thank goodness isn’t available for Linux. The good news is that Open Office or the slightly better Libre Office is, and to be honest, I’ve been using them for years.  In fact, there are thousands of really good open source software titles out there, all produced by people who put quality before profit.

So far, this old tower is now windows free, the netbook has also been converted. I’m changing over the Travelmate as soon as possible. As for the main laptop, I will keep Windows 7, only because I use Photoshop a lot and understand the program, but will install Ubuntu to run as a twin system. Gimp is a fantastic Photoshop alternative, but because it doesn’t use “actions”, and to be honest, Photoshop cost me a lot of money, I’m not yet ready to say goodbye altogether, but for general use,  blogging and keeping Alternative-News-Network on line, I will be using it in Ubuntu mode.

So there we have it, I feel cleansed and free from Gates and Google. And before anyone says “you have Adsense on ANN”, yes we do, it’s a means to an end and helps keep the site online. If you have a better suggestion to help pay for the hosting and bandwidth ANN uses, please let me know because I would love to get rid of it.

 

Google AdSense to News Site: Change Your Content, or Else.

google-adsense-to-news-site-change-your-content-or-else-v3-620x335Interesting piece on ZDNet about Google.

Summary: Google’s AdSense has told San Francisco news outlet The SF Appeal that it has three days to remove editorial content that violates its advertising policy. UPDATED.

Google’s AdSense has told San Francisco news outlet The SF Appeal that it has three days to remove editorial content that violates its advertising policy.

SF Appeal Publisher Eve Batey said, “Your advertisers shouldn’t be telling you what to cover in your publication.” She added, “that Google seems to think that it’s OK to send a vague email like this is pretty staggering, and seems to suggest that the company is not the friend to journalism they claim they are.”

Update: Google’s spokesperson responded to this article saying that despite Ms. Batey’s email from AdWords telling her otherwise (included in this article), Ms. Batey and ZDNet are incorrect to believe that AdWords is requiring content to be changed.

Google’s spokesperson clarified that this news website must follow the Google AdWords adult content policy.

Google said this morning via email, “We don’t comment on specific publishers, but below is a general statement. Also here is more on our adult content policies. Your headline is inaccurate — we don’t require publishers to change their content. They cannot run ads against content that is not in line with the policies (so they could take the ads off those pages and still run them elsewhere on the site).”

Ms. Batey responded, “Given the email sent to us by Google, then, Google’s remark that “they could take the ads off those pages and still run them elsewhere on the site” isn’t accurate.”

“That said, this response does a terrible job of even pretending to address the question posed, nor the issues raised in your report.” read more:

Does LBC Censor Any Mention Of David Icke?

You’ve got to love James O’Brien on LBC, that’s Leading Britains Biased Conversation.

Now, I’ve got to admit that I enjoy listening to James. His command of the English language is is superb, taking no prisoners when callers annoy him, although unusually flexible to having his opinion changed if a good argument is offered. Coming from a journalistic background, James followed his wonderful father into the once noble profession. Mystery hour on a Thursday between 12.00 and 13.00 is also compulsive listening.

David-Icke & James O'BrienJames works for LBC which is owned by Global Radio, part of the Heart, Capital FM, Classic FM, XFM, Gold and Smooth Radio group. Global, under the Heart brand, have taken over much of the old Independent Radio network. Good small local commercial stations becoming homogenised into a massive impersonal mind numbing network.

James does however show his true colours when the “conspiracy theory” alarm goes off as a caller on Mondays show found out. The discussion was centered around the Child Abuse inquiries after the resignation of Fiona Wolfe. This caller wanted to put forward the view that child abuse in high political life was nothing new, and dared to say that David Icke wrote about it years ago. At the mention of Ickes name, O’Brien terminated the call immediately . Now to be fair to O’Brien, the end of the call did sound a little odd, so the seven second delay button may have removed something that could not legally be broadcast, but to me it sounded like he was just cut off.

This makes me wonder, was it his choice to refuse to discuss someone, who’s views have been shown to be correct time after time, or does the aptly named Global Radio have a special panic button. After all, James iain-dale-fight-3-460x288Whale who was never frightened to include Icke when he worked for Talk Sport, was allegedly shafted by Global when he worked for LBC, replacing him with Iain “Kick Up” Dale. Good choice Global, good choice.

Millions of Ebola vaccine doses by end of 2015.

ebola vaccineNice to see on the BBC today some good news about Ebola. ” see here

“Millions of doses of experimental Ebola vaccines will be produced by the end of 2015, the World Health Organization has announced.

It said “several hundred thousand” would be produced in the first half of the year.

And vaccines could be offered to health workers on the frontline in West Africa as soon as December 2014.

However, the WHO cautioned that vaccines would not be a “magic bullet” for ending the outbreak.

There is no proven cure or vaccine for Ebola.

In response to the largest epidemic of the disease in history, the WHO is accelerating the process of vaccine development

It normally takes years to produce and test a vaccine, but drug manufacturers are now working on a scale of weeks.”

Well, that’s OK then, just remind me who is behind the World Health Organisation? Could it be the same people that run big pharma! KA-CHING.

 

 

Blair Warns Britain Needs To Take Action In Iraq And Syria – Or Face Terror Attacks.

Blair on SKYJust when I was having a really enjoyable Sunday tending to my veg in the garden, I decided to take a 10 minute sit down for a cup of tea and a quick scan of the latest MSM tosh. OMG, I wasn’t disappointed.

I remember reading some time ago, that people like Blair are such narcissistic characters, so detached from the real world that they really have no understanding of even care about how transparent their agenda is.

Anthony  Charles Lynton Blair this morning said Britain needed to take action in Iraq and Syria – or face terror attacks at home. Nice one Tony, how is the Middle Eastern Peace Envoy job going?

How on earth does a discredited man creature like Blair have the gall to dare give his opinion on anything these days is beyond me, and should be beyond any sane thinking person.  The only thing he has ever been ever fairly good at is  being  a smarmy yes man to the globalist masters pulling the strings, oh and making a vast fortune since leaving Downing Street, prostituting himself to anyone willing to pay hard cash to hear him talk, part time jobs with JPMorgan Chase(I wonder who they are connected to?) and scurrying around the Middle East jumping from conflict to conflict. 

At school  he was a complete pain in the backside and they were very glad to see the back of him source. He tired his hand at being a rock music promoter, and failed. He played in a rock band called (you’re going to love this) Ugly Rumours. He went to Oxford and got a 2nd, then moved in with Derry Irvine Chambers, where he met Elsie Tanners step daughter. He wasn’t great at the legal profession, completely out shone by Ms Booth. In the Nethermere (St Neots) Ltd v Gardiner case, he was representing the employers who where fighting to deny female workers holiday pay; he lost. However, Derry Irvine later became Blair’s first Lord Chancellor, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time. Talk about jobs for the boys.

It is alleged that during this period, in 1983 to be exact, a Charles Lynton was was fined £50 for attempted soliciting in city toilets, the police notes were to disappear later along with several prior verbal warnings. I mention this because for the system to function, the powers need very naughty stuff to blackmail their puppets, and it seems Blair has quite a few skeletons in his closet.

So here we have it, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, saying on SKY News, yes, even that made me laugh, oh the irony of it, SKY News of all places. SKY News for any none UK readers is the UK equivalent of FOX News, and controlled by Rupert Murdoch. Rupert Murdoch is the former husband of Wendi Deng, who it has been alleged, mainly by the Daily Mail was a little to close to Anthony Charles Lynton Blair source.

Murdoch and Wendi

I don’t really buy this story, (although I have enjoyed writing about it previously), it has a whiff of the Cliffords about it. How better to confuse questions about Blair’s sexual preferences than by creating a story about him over the side with Wendi. It’s a real shame her and Lord Murdemort have split up, they always looked so well suited to each other. (Tale as old as time)

Anyway, dragging myself back to the point at hand, SKY News, the free voice of the globalists, gave Blair a platform, and did the BBC,  to warm about ISIS, and how if we don’t get involved, the terrorist threat will be even greater than it currently is after he and boy Bush sent other peoples children into Iraq and Afghanistan on the back of a lie to justify Blair’s sycophantic grovelling deal made to Dubber previously.

So Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, even for the less awakened members of the British Public, you are a totally discredit has been, who will one day have to answer for your betrayal of the honest men and women in the street, who put their trust in you, and were let down in the most dishonorable manner when you sold your soul to the devil.

For everyone’s sake, please keep your opinions to yourself, we don’t trust you, we don’t like you, and most of all, we don’t want you to hear from you.

Love is a many splendid thing. Bit of a funny old handshake?

Love is a many splendid thing.



 

North Korea, MSM Lies Exposed As Hyon Song-Wol Reportedly Appears On TV

Hyon-Song-WolNorth Korea, MSM Lies Exposed As Hyon Song-Wol Reportedly Appears On TV. It’s a miracle, Hyon Song-Wol the executed former girlfriend of Kim Jong-Un has made an appearance on TV delivering a speech at a national art workers rally in Pyongyang, so reports the Mail this morning see here, after reporting her execution on 29 August last year. see here

Fascinating stuff, and a great example of how these controlled media outlets demonise whoever their current target is. Just a few months later, the Mail reported that his Uncle was stripped naked and fed to a pack of dogs. see here.

Incidentally, in the report today, they can’t even get the country Kim Jung-Un is leader of correct,here’s a screen shot taken at 05.35 this morning.

North Kor

No dear Daily Mail editors, Kim Jung-Un is the leader of North Korea, not South Korea, for gods sake, try to get the basics correct. If you’re going to make stuff up, at least make it believable.

The point here is that we know nothing about North Korea, most people don’t even know where North Korea is, so when the media report these “boggie man ” stories, most of us accept it as fact. Here’s another example of the media campaign against Kim Jung-Un. see here. I’m no apologist for North Korea, but will not base my judgement of that country on the propaganda spread by the West, look where that got us with Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Vietnam, Syria, oh, and so on.

Mail Pushing The “Global Warming” Hoax, Again. Give Me Strength, And A Snorkel.

Oh Ellie, Ellie, Ellie, I expected better from you. As science and technology journalist for the Mail you’ve really pulled out all of the globalist stops today! To be totally honest Ellie, after reading your piece titled Would YOU be underwater if the polar caps melted? Map reveals what our planet would look like if sea levels rose by 260ft” I had to check the date, no, it wasn’t April 1st.

What really hacks me off about these scare mongering pieces is that they are designed to spread fear in order to justify the global warming con trick forcing crippling carbon taxes on all of us.

I’m not going to do a line by line breakdown of the whole article like Spivey does for two reasons, I don’t have the time, or the intellect, however, a few things do need pointing out.

I worked on this map for about, gathering the data and rendering all the labels,’ said Mr Vargic, speaking to MailOnline. ‘It was entirely digitally hand-drawn, based on gathered topography data from Nasa.” (1)Exactly how long is about? (2)This post is entirely digitally hand typed. (3) We all trust everything NASA tell us.

‘I was always interested in the future climate change and human influence on the global warming. I created these maps both to raise awareness about the global warming and also because nobody has yet done this on such a scale” I can see that, I’m interested in future climate change, that’s why I watch the weather forecast.  Human influence on global warming, nice one, say it often enough and they all believe it. Oh, and nobody has done this on such a scale because nobody else wanted to waste their time on this nonsense.

Don’t get me wrong, the map is great, in fact the best piece of digitally hand drawn work I’ve seen in ages, based a a big fat global lie.

“According to recent studies, there is enough ice in Earth’s polar caps to cause about 250-300ft (80–100m) rise of the sea level,’ he said on his website.” This one’s got me a bit confused. Firstly, and I may be wrong here because I was educated by the same system that is trying to destroy us, the ice at the north pole is floating. So it must be floating on water, with me so far. OK, now when Archimedes’ went all wrinkly sitting in his bath working out his principle  that when upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces, he sort of hit upon something. Therefore the amount of ice at the north pole has already displaced it’s own weight in water, so if it melts, which it isn’t going too, there is no change. Try it yourself, get a glass of water and pop a couple of ice cubes in, thus simulating the north pole. Mark the level of water on the glass. Come back when the ice cubes have melted, Eureka no change. Please note, this isn’t technically 100% correct but near enough to make the point.

On 8 September 2013, the Mail wrote a lovely little piece on Global Cooling, and how the Arctic ice is increasing, read here

MoS2 Template Master

Anyway, not to be out done, we have created a digitally hand drawn map to show what will happen if the water rises by 8848.1 meters.

gore map

And finally, I’m fairly sure that Co2 increases because of the planet warming due to normal climate variations, mainly influenced by the sun, not the other way round. They can’t yet tax the air we breathe in,  so they tax the Co2 we breathe out. I’m off to watch some cows farting.
