Silicon Valley Will Pay the
Price for Its Lefty Leanings

Bloomberg News, by Megan McArdle

Original Article

James Damore is gone from Google. But he will not soon be forgotten. He’s joined with a conservative lawyer to bring a class action against the company, accusing it of discriminating against conservatives, Caucasians and men. The lawsuit, just filed in a California court, certainly offers evidence that things were uncomfortable for conservatives at Google. And especially, that they were uncomfortable for James Damore after he wrote a memo suggesting that before Google went all-out trying to achieve gender parity in its teams, it needed to be open to the possibility that the reason there were fewer women at the firm

And a fine thing that will be.

Pretty objective look at this lawsuit and the open secret it is about.

Nothing would please me more than to see Google, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube dismantled. Too much corporate power in exercising mind control.

Good article, by a liberal writer. She really grinds on how all the hateful conservative bashing internal comments are going to come out. She does not think James Damore has any interest in settling. This will be fun.

Thank GOD for our founding fathers, mothers, and framers who were divinely inspired to create a relatively transparent form of government that is a great bulwark against totalitarianism no matter what direction it comes from.

I noticed being discriminated against in a court room. My (then) adulteress wife got the children and a majority of my income. I got our rented house.

What did i do wrong?

Answer: I was born male.

A very good article, especially about lawyers and lawsuits. A lot of defendants overlook the fact that in any litigation, somebody has to lose.

The "discovery" process of this civil litigation should be quite interesting. I´m betting there are a whole lot of inflammatory e-mails that Google doesn´t want exposed. People in large corporations using e-mail seem to think that once it´s deleted it´s gone - but that´s not true. They should have long ago learned the lesson that you never write anything you wouldn´t want to see on the front page of a newspaper.

As for Google it made its vast fortune nearly overnight. Google could disappear just as quickly.

A documentary about a Syrian refugee in Germany, who happily lives on state handouts with his two wives and six kids, has angered many in the country where polygamy is against the law. The Spiegel TV film was aired over the weekend, telling the story of 32-year-old Ahmad A. who fled the fighting in Syria’s Aleppo back in 2015 with his large family, and found a safe haven in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany. The man lives in a two-story house provided by the community with two wives and six children. Despite polygamy being illegal in Germany, Ahmad was allowed to bring his second

Moms are embarrassing, even when they’re Oscar-winning legends. But Sally Field has succeeded in getting her single son in contact with the Olympics’ breakout star Adam Rippon. Page Six has exclusively learned that Field’s son has reached out personally to figure skating darling Rippon to apologize for his mom’s awkward attempts to set them up on a date. On Friday, filmmaker Sam Greisman tweeted a text conversation between him and Field in which his doting mom encouraged him to “find a way” to ask the scene-stealing skater out on a date, with Field telling her son of Rippon, “Sam . .

Taxes are down. Jobs are forming all over. Regulations have been slashed. Government coffers are filling up. Companies are forming. Migrants are choosing legal over illegal immigration. The nightmare of Obamacare is almost over. Europe is paying its NATO bills. The ISIS empire is dead. North Korea is trembling. Russia is on the run.

If rule-of-law advocates are seen as a divided bunch and President Trump himself seems a bit squishy on what kind of bill he will sign to end illegal immigration, it´s worth noting that over on the left, the open-borders lobby, and the garden-variety illegals in particular, are pretty much at each others´ throats over the coddling that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients are getting. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune: “I’m very bitter. These DACA kids definitely have this sense of entitlement,” Paredes said. “People fought for them and they got DACA and they got their work permit and then they

Funny how the Olympic athletes who managed not to insult and offend us by their loudmouth anti-Trump grandstanding before the games seem to be the only ones who either win big medals or else win our hearts anyway. Who wasn´t delighted by Chloe Kim with her snowboarding virtuosity along with her delightful, vibrant, bubbly, teenager personality? [Snip] Then there were the bad sports, the attention-seekers, and worst of all, the anti-Trump loudmouths, who insulted us all with their anti-Trump remarks before they have even competed to show us what they could do in the 2018 Olympics.

I have always prided myself on being an amateur historian, knowing far more than most people. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out, about ten years ago, that I knew nothing about one of the most important battles in world history, whose ramifications echo down to this day. This is the Battle of Cartagena de los Indias, fought between the Spanish and British empires off the coast of present-day Colombia in 1741. It was part of the War of Jenkin´s Ear, a war where Britain´s ultimate aim was to break the Spanish empire and impose a British hegemony

The stock market apparently has decided that the indictments of Russians announced yesterday is good news for the tax-cutting, regulation-slashing president who ignited the boom that is raising corporate profits, full-time employment, and paychecks all over the country. Let CNN and MSNBC and the other Trump-haters bloviate about how this proves something bad about President Trump. The people with money on the line don´t care about manufacturing narratives for political gain; all they care about is a cold-eyed assessment of where this will lead the country. This screenshot from CNBC says it all. At first, there were fears that the country might

As if it couldn´t soil itself more in the wake of its flawed Russian investigation scandal targeting Donald Trump, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in hot water again, this time over its failure to act on at least two very specific tipoffs about the Parkland, Florida school spray shooter, who murdered 17 people in cold blood. Here is the FBI´s press release: On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him.

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

Joy Behar was forced to apologize to Mike Pence for calling him a crazy person. “The View” host has spent much of the past week dropping not-so-subtle hints that the vice president belongs in the looney bin for suggesting that God speaks to him. Unfortunately, the Democrats’ unofficial 2020 frontrunner Oprah Winfrey just said basically the same thing in a sit down with CBS’ 60 Minutes Overtime. To her credit, Winfrey cited her relationship with God in her decision to not (yet) formally declare her candidacy.

One of Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s lead attorneys has an ethics problem. Actually, a lot of ethics problems, considering what he´s gotten away with. According to investigative journalist Sara Carter, Weissmann has been busted for withholding evidence in a previous court case involving prosecution of organized crime, to put an extra thumb on the scale of justice in his own favor. Carter writes that: In 1997 Andrew Weissmann was officially reprimanded by a judge in the Eastern District of New York for withholding evidence.

For awhile there, it seemed that the Trump-hating FBI lovebirds, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose text sound like those of giggly teenagers, were sort of comically most emblematic of the conflicts of interest that besmirch what should be an expected detached professionalism among members of America´s intelligence community. Now we have revelations that U.S. Department of Justice Associate Deputy Attorney General, Bruce Ohr, failed to disclose the payments his wife Nellie Ohr was receiving from Fusion GPS on his official forms, an ethics violation that carries a jail penalty, according to the Daily Caller.

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers, began looking after them after their adoptive mother, Lynda, died of pneumonia in November.
