Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Launches New Social Media Platform “Bluesky”

The Founder and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has created a new social platform called ‘Bluesky,’ a social networking ecosystem based on decentralized protocols.

Jack Dorsey also helped destroy free speech in the United States.

In May, Jack Dorsey stepped down from the social media giant’s Board effective immediately.

Dorsey was attacked by the Democrats for agreeing with Musk’s opinion that banning former President Donald Trump from the social media platform was a poor decision.

In a statement, he expressed regret for the “business decision.”

Banning Trump from Twitter “was a morally bad decision, to be clear, and foolish in the extreme,” Musk said at a Financial Times conference on Tuesday. Musk was quick to state that former CEO and founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey agreed.

“I do agree,” Dorsey wrote. “There are exceptions (CSE, illegal behavior, spam or network manipulation, etc), but generally permanent bans are a failure of ours and don’t work.”

Dorsey was “partially to blame” for the current state of our internet today and claimed that he regrets it.

“The days of usenet, irc, the web…even email (w PGP)…were amazing. centralizing discovery and identity into corporations really damaged the internet. I realize I’m partially to blame, and regret it,” Dorsey said in his tweet.

Now, the former CEO is launching a new social media platform called “Bluesky.”

CNBC reported:

Bluesky is a public benefit corporation trying to build a new “open and decentralised” form of social media. The platform aims to create a standard protocol for social media platforms. Once fully developed, it would allow separate social media networks to interact with each other via an open standard, despite each network having its own curation and moderation systems.

Bluesky was conceived as the solution to the failures of Twitter. It was announced at a time when social media networks were being accused of data misappropriation, misinformation and election interference. In fact, Jack Dorsey introduced the project in a Twitter thread that justified the ban of Donald Trump on the platform.

“We are trying to do our part by funding an initiative around an open decentralised standard for social media. Our goal is to be a client of that standard for the public conversation layer of the internet. We call it Bluesky,” read Dorsey’s tweet.

Essentially, Bluesky was created and funded by its parent company, Twitter, and the goal was for Twitter to eventually adopt the technology. To that extent, Bluesky received $13 million in funding from Twitter, with no conditions or commitments except to keep the research going.

Bluesky’s leading proponent, Jack Dorsey, is no longer part of Twitter. Moreover, Elon Musk recently fired Dorsey’s successor, Parag Agrawal. As such, Bluesky has officially lost two of its biggest supporters from within Twitter. This means that future support from the microblogging website would be minimal, if any at all.
However, leaked conversations between Musk and Dorsey paint a different picture. The Tesla CEO is said to have called Bluesky a “super interesting idea” and expressed his desire to help if he could. Dorsey reciprocated that positivity when Musk’s Twitter takeover was announced. “Elon is the singular solution I trust… this is the right path. I believe it with all my heart,” he said.
This could point to future collaboration between the two. However, Bluesky is still a long way from being a complete product, and only time will tell how things actually shape up.

Nuclear-armed Navy submarine aborted top secret mission due to life-or-death fire beneath the waves

A NUCLEAR-armed Navy submarine had to abort a top secret mission because of a life-or-death fire beneath the waves.

HMS Victorious was carrying Trident 2 missiles when the electrical blaze broke out.

The £3billion Vanguard-class nuclear submarine shot to the surface as the captain declared “emergency stations”.

Every member of the 130-plus crew, including those off-duty, was ordered into action.

Naval sources insisted the fire was swiftly contained.

One said: “Every seagoing member of the Royal Navy is a qualified fire-fighter. This ensures that our ships and submarines are able to respond to incidents swiftly and efficiently, assuring operational outputs are not affected.”

The 30-year-old vessel — which is overdue a major refit — broke surface in the North Atlantic to flush out toxic fumes.

After assessing the damage, the captain ordered a return to base at HMNB Clyde in Faslane.

The 16,000-tonne sub is one of four that provides non-stop nuclear deterrent patrols — but was understood not to be in that role at the time.

A Royal Navy spokesman said: “The continuous at-sea deterrent is unaffected but we do not comment on the detail of submarine operations.”

The only thing that we can believe from the MSM is that they are lying, or at best twisting the truth to a false narrative.

Nuclear submarine spy couple, who tried to sell secrets to Brazil, sentenced to decades in prison

The former Navy engineer and his wife who tried to pass nuclear secrets to Brazil and once used a peanut butter sandwich as a dead drop were each slapped with lengthy prison sentences Wednesday.

In yet another twist in the case, Diana Toebbe, 46, was hit with a stiffer sentence than her husband, 44-year-old Jonathan Toebbe.

Judge Gina Groh, of the Northern District of West Virginia, sentenced Diana to more than 21 years in prison while Jonathan was hit with more than 19 years in prison, the Department of Justice said.

Judge Groh imposed the stricter sentence on Diana because she allegedly tried to obstruct justice by sending her husband letters while they were in jail, the New York Times reported.

Although Jonathan was the one with the security clearance and access to the nuclear information, Diana was “driving the bus” of the scheme, the judge noted, according to the report.

Israel has been ordered by the UN to eliminate any nuclear weapons it may possess. At the same time, Iran is not a topic on which the UN takes a position. What’s the deal with that?

United Nations Calls for Israel to Rid Itself of All Nuclear Weapons

I think that one thing that would benefit the entire planet is for every country to abandon the concept of nuclear weapons. I hope that one day this will happen so that we don’t rid the world of millions of innocent lives, because that is most certainly what would happen.

Just recently, the United Nations voted to order one NATO country to eliminate any nuclear weapons that they may have. That nation was Israel…of all places.

Israel has been ordered by the UN to eliminate any nuclear weapons it may possess. At the same time, Iran is not a topic on which the UN takes a position. What’s the deal with that?

Israel must give up its nuclear weapons and for any installations containing nuclear material to be within its boundaries, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, according to a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on Friday by a vote of 152 to 5. The only nations to vote against it were Canada, Israel, Micronesia, Palau and the United States. 24 countries abstained altogether.

According to Fox News, Israel is free of nuclear weapons. Despite this, the majority opinion is that they do in fact exist. Iran is making progress with its nuclear program and is getting close to getting uranium that can be used to make weapons.

The First Committee reportedly passed a resolution to create a “nuclear-free zone” in the Middle East as well. Michal Maayan, the Israeli deputy ambassador to the UN, didn’t appear really interested in what was occurring in Iran, which was even more disappointing.

“For decades now, Iran has been rapidly advancing its illicit nuclear programs and currently possesses large quantities of highly enriched nuclear material,” Maayan charged.

“Some actors in the region claim that a comprehensive security architecture can be initiated in the Middle East, with direct engagement with Israel, without recognition of Israel’s right to exist within safe and secure borders, without reducing regional tension and the building of the necessary trust and confidence among regional states…This position is untenable,” Maayan stated.

US Navy Sinks Boat Carrying ‘Explosive Materials’ From Iran To Yemen

The US navy said Tuesday it had scuttled a boat transporting “explosive materials” from Iran to supply Huthi rebels in Yemen, with enough power to fuel a dozen ballistic rockets.

The boat, which the US navy seized on November 8 in the Gulf of Oman was sunk on Sunday, the Bahrain-based United States Fifth Fleet said.

“The vessel and its four Yemeni crew members were intercepted while transiting from Iran along a route historically used to traffic weapons to the Huthis in Yemen,” the US navy statement read.

US forces discovered more than 100 tonnes of urea fertiliser and over 70 tonnes of ammonium perchlorate, a key ingredient “commonly used to make rocket and missile fuel as well as explosives”, it said.

“This was a massive amount of explosive material, enough to fuel more than a dozen medium-range ballistic missiles depending on the size,” Vice Admiral Brad Cooper said in a statement.

“The unlawful transfer of lethal aid from Iran does not go unnoticed,” he added.

The four Yemeni sailors were handed over to the Yemeni coastguard.

War in Yemen erupted in 2014 when the Iran-backed Huthis seized the capital Sanaa, prompting a Saudi-led coalition to intervene the following year to prop up the internationally recognised government.

Since then, a grinding war has killed hundreds of thousands and pushed the impoverished nation to the brink of famine.

A UN-brokered ceasefire that took effect in April brought a sharp reduction in hostilities, but that truce expired on October 2. Fighting continues.

HOW IT’S DONE: Over 3 Million Brazilians Protest Election Fraud – Bolsonaro to Annul the Steal!

This is how it’s done: Over 3 million Brazilians filled the streets on Republic Day yesterday, Nov. 15, to protest the stolen elections. The party of President Jair Bolsonaro presented its report and announced it will apply to have the election annulled since the results could not be validated.

Since the massive fraud during the runoff election on October 30th in Brazil, millions of Brazilians have been protesting on the streets every day against electoral fraud by Communist convicted criminal Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

On yesterday’s Day of the Republic, millions took to the streets again, especially in Rio de Janeiro and the capital, Brasilía, but also in smaller towns across the country.

“I’m no expert on the history of protests, but I think these may be the biggest protests the world has ever seen,” Brazil expert Fernando Teles told German website Free World. “People are very angry. That isn’t really like the Brazilians at all, who are usually pretty laid back.”

According to Teles, over 3 million people demonstrated yesterday in Brasilía, although the capital is very difficult to reach and people often had to travel several days to get there. In Rio de Janeiro, approx. 500,000 protested in front of the old Ministry of Defense, demanding military intervention to prevent the communists from taking power.

Demonstrators complained that at least 100 of the electronic ballot boxes did not contain a single vote for Bolsonaro. 5 million votes were discarded. Allegedly, Lula won 50.9% of the vote and Bolsonaro 49.1%.

Last week, Minister of Defense Paulo Sergio Nogueira de Oliveira sent his report on possible election fraud to the radical leftist Supreme Electoral Court (TSE), which consists of diehard Lula supporters. The military’s report spoke of “relevant security risks”: “It is not possible to say the electronic voting system is free from the influence of malware that could affect its outcome,” says the report. The TSE will likely ignore the report.

Now President Bolsonaro’s Liberal Party (PL) has also submitted its report on electoral fraud, stating that the PL will request “an annulment of the election” because “it is not possible to validate the results of all the electronic voting machines.”

Only a party involved in the election can contest the result, Teles said. “The electoral court will probably refuse,” says Fernando Teles. “Then the sitting President can order a military court to decide. Then it will be a battle between the judicial system and the executive branch. The military will probably have to take to the streets. Under the Law and Order Act (GLO), the President can order the army to restore peace.”

According to Teles, Bolsonaro and the military leadership are making every effort to follow the law and the rules of democracy. Protestors are already demanding military intervention, with chants of “Forças armadas, salvam nossa pátria!” (Armed Forces, Save Our Country!).

“The funny thing is, although they say they won the majority in the election, there are no protests by Lula supporters,” Teles said. “Where are they?

Now Texas Governor Abbott sends TANKS to the border after threatening to send gunboats - as Republican invokes invasion clause to deal with migrants flooding over border

  • Texas Governor Greg Abbott is deploying National Guard troops in M113 armored personnel carrier to various positions along the border
  • The news comes days after Abbott sent a letter to President Biden threatening to deploy gunboats and invoking a constitutional clause
  • Abbott invoked Article I Section 10 of the Constitution which forbids states from military action 'unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger'
  • Affectionately known as the 'battle taxi' by troops in the Army, the M113 is bulletproof and can withstand small explosions
  • The Texas Military Department said they ordered 10 of the vehicles and will train around 50 soldiers to operate them
  • Last month there were 230,678 recorded encounters between undocumented migrants and Border Patrol officers

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is deploying National Guard troops in M113 armored personnel carrier to various positions along the border after earlier threatening to use gunboats in an attempt to quell the influx of migrants at the border.

The news comes after Abbott invoked a Constitutional clause on Wednesday warning President Joe Biden that the Lone Star state would go rogue to defend itself from what he calls a migrant 'invasion' at the southern border.

Ticking Time Bomb: 500,000 Armed Foreign 'Soldiers' Are Hiding Inside Germany Awaiting Their Attack Orders

Hundred of thousands of foreign fighters, many of who are armed, have invaded Germany and are waiting for the signal to attack. The German government can no longer protect its citizens, that have been left armed and helpless by their policies.

Federal border police no longer speak of asylum seekers but soldiers storming their country. It is estimated that are 500,000 soldiers waiting for an order to attack. Meanwhile, Germany has 260,000 Bundeswehr soldiers (armed forces of the Federal Republic of Germany).

Police are being pressured not to speak of the invasion taking place. The same applies to vehicles coming over the Balkan route. They are sometimes checked, and if weapons are found, which often trucks are full of them, “they may not be confiscated.”

WATCH: Ecuador Fans Chant ‘We Want Beer’ at Alcohol-Free Qatar World Cup

With the World Cup in the strict Muslim country of Qatar well underway, the end of beer sales is being felt as fans from Ecuador are making their displeasure at the lack of suds known with an insistent chant from the stands.

Ecuadorian fans have been heard repeatedly chanting “Queremos Cerveza.”

That translates to “We want beer!”

The chant stems from a decision by the Qatari government to abruptly reverse its original decision to permit beer sales during the games. The decision to reverse beer sales came only hours before the games were set to begin.

The decision to stop beer sales surprised soccer’s governing body, FIFA, especially since officials had signed a $75 million contract with Budweiser to serve suds to fans.

Qatar has caused far more troubling questions, though.

A major sticking point among organizers, clubs and fans alike is the issue of homosexuality, which is outlawed in the strict Muslim nation.

The issue has been such a hot button that organizers set out to stress that the LGBTQ agenda is not welcome in Qatar and fans should leave their ideas about the gay agenda behind.

The questions over homosexuality already spurred the US Men’s National Team to change its logo to add LGBTQ colors in protest over the country’s laws.

Two planes diverted due to staff shortages at air traffic control

The British Airways flight from London Heathrow to Gibraltar operated out of Malaga on Thursday afternoon due to staff shortage at air traffic control.

“NATS was unable to provide an air traffic control service at Gibraltar Airport after 3pm local time,” an MOD spokesperson told the Chronicle, adding this was due to staff sickness.

The affected inbound flight, BA490 from London Heathrow, was diverted to Malaga and the outbound flight, BA491 to Heathrow, left from Malaga.

A press officer for British Airways said: “The flight was diverted due to air traffic control restrictions.”

Issues of staff shortages have caused numerous flight diversions and airport closures this year.

To address the issues NATS, the company that operates air traffic control under contract to the Ministry of Defence, pledged it would hire more staff, with a recruitment and training process started earlier this year.
