There are some press comments that have been brought to my attention after yesterday’s hearing of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in front of two committees in the US Senate: The senators were “a little too old” for the 33-year-old Zuckerberg, it was said.
 “They understand ‘What’s up’, but not ‘WhatsApp’ ‘. “They   address privacy policy terms and tend to forget about the serious issue of Russian interference “, somebody wrote.
     While a Russian article said: “Zuckerberg had to answer for Russia “.

Zuck in the hot seat

  I listened for a while. The senator “Mr. Nelson” spoke slowly,
     but bluntly:
       “My personal information – is it mine, or Facebook’s  ?

 Yes, how would the senators, after the scandal with Cambridge Analytica, “rely on companies like Facebook to take care of the more personal and identifiable information” that they have access to ?

                How would the man on the street !?

    Today, Zuckerberg will be heard by another committee in the Senate.

    God wanted Jeremiah to do an investigation in the city:

    Jer. 5:1 -5

Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.

Jeremia x

 And though they say, The Lord liveth; surely they swear falsely.

 Lord, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.  

Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.  I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the Lord, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds…

 

“Lenin has returned from exile” – was a comment on Russian social media, as Sergey Udaltsov was released yesterday after 4 1/2 years in prison camp in the Tambov – region in Russia. Udaltsov was one of the most strictly sentenced protesters against the – for the benefit of Putin – arranged presidential elections in Russia *) 2012.

The so-called “Bolotnaya case“.

Udaltsov belongs to the Russian opposition, more specifically, the “left front”.

 

*) NOTE! In Russia – not in the US – where it took place a few years later, when (could it be so?) the Russian hackers  more fully, and out of experience, realized their potential..

 Oliver Stone’s 4-hour interview with Putin,  sent / released around three weeks ago, is dealt with in different ways on the web. Surely, criticism have been heard . Mikhail Khodorkovsky‘s bulletin “Otkrytaya Rossiya” (= “Open Russia”) contents a critical response on 25/6.

I bring some of that article here, as far as to the mentioning of  an interesting observation:

 A cynic in the Kremlin

“Otkrytaya Rossiya” about why it’s not worth it that Putin is proud over Oliver Stone’s film about himself.

Just the fact that Vladimir Putin has entered the row of  “Stone Heroes” – a definite milestone in his biography – can hardly please Putin himself, says “Otkrytaya Rossiya” – journalist,  Stanislav Kuwaldin.

Putin and Oliver Stone

In his documentary interview films, Oliver Stone has left some of the technical details from the recordings in the movies. So it was in the movie “The Commander”, dedicated to Fidel Castro, and according to the same principle he is working also in the film about Yasser Arafat – “Persona non grata”. The film “Interview with Putin” is no exception.

While talking with the Russian president, either in the dacha in Novo-Ogarevo or in the Kremlin Palace painted halls, or in the Sochi residence, Stone does not only picture Putin, but he also leave space for different workstations – a microphone on a long stick, camera movements, co-workers  trying not to end up in the camera , and other episodes from the recording process.
