Google punished by EU for abuse of weaker rivals with $2.7 billion fine.
Since many years Google takes money and gives privileges to advertisements.
It sucks, if better websites become downgraded in ranking by Google. This is not the idea of a free Internet!
BRUSSELS — European regulators fined Google a record 2.42 billion euros ($2.72 billion) for abusing its dominance of the online search market in a case that could be just the opening salvo in Europe’s attempt to curb the company’s clout on that continent.
The decision announced Tuesday by the European Commission punished Google for unfairly favoring its own online shopping recommendations in its search results. The commission is also conducting at least two other probes into the company’s business practices that could force Google to make even more changes in the way it bundles services on mobile devices and sells digital advertising.

Lasst Euch nicht verarschen. Der will nur Macht, der spricht nicht für EUCH! Um innenpolitisch als ‘starker Mann’ zu wirken, beleidigt er andere, fordert aber für sich selbst Respekt.

Heute sind Journalisten und Richter im Knast, Morgen sind es Eure Brüder und Schwestern!

Sagt: NEIN!

At least Europe had to laugh a lot when Trump the trumpet visited Scotland yesterday.

After he recognized that Belgium is NOT a town, he said on Twitter, that the Scottish took their country back. Uninformed as usual, Brexit = Brain exit, Mr Trump?

Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!

Stay Out And Shut Up

I really should not listen to the news nowadays. A few days ago the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution, which provides a bold peace plan in addition to a ceasefire and talks between government and opposition. Great! A peace plan! Another fine plan, I thought and learned that after the help of the UN in six months a transitional government will be formed and after 18 months the creation of a new constitution to be held election for a new government will be formed.

Well, how shall that work? I asked myself. The latest report of the Centre on Religion and Geopolitics says that 15 of  the Salafist-jihadist groups (with a transnational ideology) battling with IS would put themselves in its place.

Syria

90 percent of the groups would have the goal of overthrowing Assad, 33 percent fight against the IS. Only 38 percent said they would strive for a democracy, 10 percent protection of all ethnic and religious groups. Well, 38% democracy and 10% protection for dissenters… no, thanks.

Western powers should stay out there. Even their intervention in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan proved that any intervention exacerbates the situation.

If you send weapons all  you get back are refugees.
