Complaint Against Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Instagram

Just recently, Larry Klayman who is the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch and former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor, announced filing a class action lawsuit which alleges social media giants such as Google/YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and Instagram conspired by entering into an explicit or tacit agreement, in parallel to each other, to restrain trade in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act. See Freedom Watch v. Google/YouTube et. al (Civil Action Number 18-cv-2030, U.S. District Court for District of Columbia).

Complaint alleges intent and effect of this agreement in restraint of trade is to quash and/or limit advocacy by conservatives and pro-Trump pubic interest groups, advocates, and others to further leftist anti-conservative agendas of these social media giants and help bring down the Trump presidency, nullifying the vote for the president by millions of citizens. These alleged illegal and anticompetitive actions are an integral part of the so-called “resistance” to remove President Trump and install a leftist government over the 50 states.

The class action complain can be found here.

The complaint is first of its kind in the wake of mourning proof that social media giants are illegally restricting free speech of conservatives, and promoting free speech from leftist sources such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others.

“Our inert and compromised Attorney General Jeff Sessions is unwilling to take strong action through his Antitrust Division as he has become the darling of the left given his refusal to prosecute Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, prominent Democrats and others who have allegedly committed crimes, while giving Robert Mueller carte blanche to proceed with his ‘witch hunt,” says Klayman.

“Freedom Watch seeks to right this discrimination against conservatives by social media giants. Our complaint asks for injunctive relief and over a billion dollars in damages, including punitive damages, pales in comparison to what the Commission of the European Union has already levied against such social media giants as Google for alleged ruthless tactics in stifling competition.”

2019 Lexus ES 350 Longer, Lower, Wider

By: Shin Takei, Automotive Editor at Large

Following the debut of the RC and LS models, the all new 2019 Lexus ES series features their Global Architecture-K (GA-K} platform and is longer, lower and wider than previous ES model. Realistically it looks much better than its predecessor and despite its lower roof, there’s more room inside. There are three models offered at this time, the ES 350, ES 350H and for the first time the ES 350 F-Sport. The signature spindle grill is a vertical pattern in the ES 350 and 350H while for the F-Sport it’s similar to the LS with a wider meshed “L” pattern. The overall look is a smooth, fluid faster looking shape. Three wheel choices are available; standard 17,” 18” and the 19” for the F-Sport. Powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 (2GR-FKS) engine that develops 302 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm and 267 lb-ft of torque @ 4,700 rpm the ES still returns 22mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. Each ES is built by a team lead by Master Craftsmen who go through rigorous technical training back in Japan. This includes strict discipline such as to feel by touch tolerances in panel gaps and surface irregularities.

The GA-K chassis is an extremely rigid chassis with structural adhesives and laser-weld screws as well as reinforcements for the front strut towers to improve front end stiffness. Sound deadening insulation covers 93% of the floor plan and performance dampeners reduce vibration on all Ultra Luxury and F-Sport models. Furthermore, the wheels are designed to direct road noise into the tire chamber to help quiet the ride. Dynamic Control shocks were designed to smooth out the ride and reduce roll. In the F-Sport Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) is offered with 650 levels of adjustment to deliver optimal ride and precise control. Instead of the steering column mounted power steering assist, a rack-assist Electric Power Steering (EPS) has been incorporated to provide precise feedback.

The ES is equipped with a Drive Mode Select system that allows the driver to choose from Eco, Normal and Sports node for the AVS cars and those with AVS gets Sports S, Sports S+ and Custom where there are three engine and transmission programs and two steering and suspension programs. Fun stuff like quicker throttle response, faster shifting and steering parameters are enhanced. The Eco Mode is for those more environmentally concerned and the ES 350h has an all new Hybrid drivetrain that gets up to 44 combined mpg. We will report on this car when we have time to test it later. For the ES the already driver-centric cockpit has been further enhanced with a Seat in Control concept which places all instruments and switches within the direct view and reach of the driver with up to an 8” LCD display as well as an optional Heads-Up display. An additional Multi-Media display sits high in the line of sight with up to a 12.3” Navigation Electro Multi Vision (EMV) screen. All of this is accessible through an updated Remote Touch Interface (RTI). Headroom was increased despite the lower roofline because of a lower hip point and headliner positioning. A more natural steering wheel angle as well as revised pedal position and the 10-way power adjustable seats contribute to a comfortable driving environment. There are three interior color schemes, four types of trim and three different material choices for the seats. The F-Sport gets an additional Circuit Red seats and door panels. There are three wood trims and for the F Sport an aluminum trim inspired by the Japanese sword called Hadori Aluminum is included.

Being connected is now a breeze with the ES with Apple CarPlay© and Amazon Alexa©. While the standard audio is a 10-speaker Pioneer system, the optional Mark Levinson with 17 speakers and 1,800 watts of power is available for the audiophile. Onboard Wi-Fi by Verizon is standard and the Lexus Enform Safety Connect is free for a year and Lexus Enform Service Connect reminds you of maintenance schedules. Other features include Lexus Enform Remote that connects your phone with your ES to perform certain functions, Lexus Safety System 2.0 with daytime bicyclist detection, Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Assist (LDA), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), All Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and Road Sign Assist (RSA) in case you missed it.

So how does it drive? The ES 350 is a pretty nice package of comfort and performance which brings the car to previously uncharted territory and finally cuts the grade with its rivals. The F Sport brings excitement by being a worthy contender with added emotional content. Because of the engineering, one might forget that the ES is still a front drive configuration until it is driven to the limit and even if so, it retains its composure. Most drivers will never get there but it is reassuring to know that if you ever do, the ES will be quite stable. The steering has enough feel and stability and directs the car exactly where you want it to go in spirited driving. It’s refreshing to think you can drive an ES hard and actually enjoy it.

The result of Chief Designer Yasuo Kajino and Chief Engineer Yasuhiro Sakakibara’s creation is remarkable. They set out to move on from the past image often associated with the ES which were good but boring or unexciting. The 2019 Lexus ES 350 is a car to look forward to specially if you are looking into buying or leasing a car in this crowded segment. You will be looking forward to driving this car for fun and not just a car to transport yourself to and from your destination.

Misconceptions of Driving an Electric Vehicle

Whitley, UK: Jaguar has today launched an intelligent app designed to help motorists experience life with an electric vehicle (EV), before actually owning one.

The Go I-PACE App captures journey data on a smartphone, notifying customers of how much money they’d be saving per trip, and how much battery they’d be consuming – delivering a clear indication of the time frame customers could go without charging their car.

In recent years, there has been a worldwide acceptance of electric vehicles, with over 1.9 million battery electric vehicles used globally in 2017. China is currently ranked as the largest market for all-electric vehicles, though countries like the US and Norway are also growing considerably, often triggered by government incentives such as subsidies and exemption from toll and parking fees.

According to recent reports by ‘The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT), many British drivers are still mistrustful or confused when it comes to pure electric cars. Research has shown that more than 52% of consumers are interested in purchasing electric cars, but hesitate due to concerns such finding a charging spot, or not feeling like they know enough about how an EV actually works.

As a result, Jaguar has teamed up with Presenter and Independent EV Expert Robert Llewelyn, to help customers realise the benefits and simplicity of actually owning an electric vehicle.

Robert commented: “It can be hard for drivers to understand how an EV would fit into their day-to-day lives. The Go I-PACE app makes this possible by providing personalised information about how the Jaguar I-PACE could work for them based on real-world data. I’ve no doubt the app will surprise many users with the scale of the potential cost savings and by revealing how little change to their driving habits I-PACE ownership would actually make.”

With many governments around the world, including the UK, intending to cut emissions and improve air quality by 2030, the Go I-PACE app gives motorists the chance to prepare for the future.

The app is free to download and available now on Apple devices, and will be coming soon for Android:

Tyler Florence & Cooper’s Hawk

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand centered around food and wine, has announced their second wine collaboration with Chef Tyler Florence: a Sauvignon Blanc. The blend is a labor of love between Cooper’s Hawk winemaker Rob Warren and the Food Network host, author, restaurateur and winemaker, Tyler Florence. The collaboration wine is a limited production blend made for the company’s 300,000-plus Wine Club and is positioned as July’s “Wine of the Month”. While the wine debuted at a members-only Wine Club dinner hosted by Florence in Naples, Florida on June 20th, restaurant guests can sample the blend by the glass in the dining and tasting rooms throughout the month of July in any of Cooper’s Hawk 32 restaurants.
“Collaborating with the very best chefs and winemakers not only elevates the Cooper’s Hawk brand, but raises the bar for the entire hospitality industry,” says Cooper’s Hawk Founder & CEO Tim McEnery. “Working with Tyler on our second wine collaboration has been one of the most educational experiences to date. His curious palate and deep knowledge of wine helped create an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc.”
Over the past twelve years, Florence has added several wine awards to his list of accomplishments, scoring in the 90s with Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. Tyler is also a top-selling author of 12 cookbooks and proprietor of two acclaimed restaurants.
I am laser-focused on creating exciting flavor profiles, so wine was a natural next step for me a decade ago,”says Florence. “The Cooper’s Hawk philosophy of blending brings great freedom to the world of winemaking and allows them to move with the trends. We used grapes from Monterey County to create a wine with aromas of lemon, orange, melon, grass, grapefruit and gooseberry with whimsical tropical flavors like guava, kiwi and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and loaded with green apple and citrus fruit.”
Cooper’s Hawk continues to push the boundaries of experiential branding by sharing the excitement that comes from collaborating with culinary and wine luminaries like Florence, and many others including Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Jean Charles Boisset (Boisset Collection), Richard Blais, Anne Burrell and many others.

NIGOS Release MV for Narcos

Straight off the heels of winning the BET Award as Best Group, superstar multi-platinum hip-hop trio Migos today release the video for their chart-topping song Narcos. This marks Quavo’s directorial debut, with co-direction by Joseph Desrosiers.
WATCH HERE.
Narcos already has more than 153 million streams and was recently performed by the group on Saturday Night Live. Migos take the music on the road this summer on Aubrey and the Three Migos tour with Drake (full dates below).
The GRAMMY-nominated trio of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff released their second consecutive album to land at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, CULTURE II (Quality Control Music Motown Records / Capitol), in January of 2018. Sunday at the 2018 BET Awards Migos were recognized as the Best Group, the award given to the overall best R&B, hip hop or gospel group who has release an album in the previous or same year. Migos has hit another milestone this year being honored with the ASCAP Vanguard Award from the 31stAnnual ASACAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards.
Recently Migos made history by tying The Beatles for the most simultaneous entries on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart among groups (with 14 songs on the chart) according to Nielsen Music. CULTURE II has been streamed over 1 billion times and is RIAA Certified Platinum. Migos is now one of only five rap groups with multiple No. 1 albums. CULTURE II topped the iTunes albums charts in 60 countries and debuted at No. 1 in 62 countries on Apple Music, achieving one of the largest streaming debut weeks in Apple Music’s history.
In a cover story, Rolling Stone said, Migos aren’t big. They’re gigantic. Twenty-six-year-old Offset, his 26-year-old cousin Quavo and Quavo’s 23-year-old nephew Takeoff have transcended hip-hop to become shapers of the culture.
Their blockbuster single MotorSport, featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, earned Double Platinum status in Canada, and RIAA Certified Platinum status in the US. Their second single, Stir Fry, produced by Pharrell Williams, was the official song for NBA’s All-Star weekend. This year alone the group performed on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, graced the covers of Rolling Stone and Complex and was nominated for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
(They) knock the meringue trap ballad beat out of the bando. -XXL
Narcos beat (is) just staggering. -Stereogum
It’s a standout track for its display of technical rapping ability alone. -Hypebeast
“Arguably the most influential group – in any genre – of the past few years.”Rolling Stone
