THE GREAT CHARADE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s begin by saying this.  When it comes to civil unrest, certainly, there is no question that for a very long time there have been many injustices  happening in America and for at least a century and even longer.  We are not just talking about social and economic injustices among African Americans, but also there have been injustices among the Mexicans, Orientals, Indians, and a host of other nationalities that  have all had their share of major rip offs, trials and countless setbacks. In spite of certain advantages that have been given to these groups for many years, such as upward mobility and college opportunities, a culture of unthankfulness also exists among certain groups of people who still want to take the law into their own hands.

While states and the federal government agencies most often tend to have the upper hand with thousands of laws along with fines and jail time, sadly, law enforcement seems to be quite immune from criminal conduct a lot of the time.  And apart from violence and theft by the common people which I do not approve of, many members of government are also guilty of outrageous actions themselves, but then generally they get away with these actions regularly which are on the same level as crime or even treason. However, that in itself, doesn’t give the right to groups such as Antifa and others a license to burn our cities and take unlawfulness to an anarchical level.  Both sides need to sit down and and talk and come and reason together before our entire country bites the dust. Law enforcement and protestors need a new blueprint for living in a society that was once a much safer and kinder country. 

Be assured, America is also being driven by hate and various far left groups that are meant to topple the country and rebuild it.  And yes, this is a dark agenda that will will surely cost the very freedom that was fought for from the very beginning in 1776.  Although, no country is perfect and I do not blame people if they are discontent with their lives because of Covid-19 and the present police state of affairs, yet if certain groups of people are being paid to protest and light our cities on fire, then it is no longer a question of defunding the police. It is now only a question of how might major change be made without violence and murders from the radical gangs and the far left which is no better than the rogue police who can use military grade equipment among the protestors that was brought in during the Obama administration.  This even included shoulder-held grenade launchers and other murderous instruments which may be used by SWAT teams or members of the National Guard.  And yes, Black Lives matter, but then why is the mainstream media not questioning a dark rouge government agenda which was birthed before President Trump took office?

COVID-19 Pandemic Used to Roll Out Invasive ‘Health ID’ Cards to Collect and Share Biometric Data

2 Comments

SOURCE:  bigleaguepolitics.com

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the surrounding mass hysteria pushed by the media, is being used as an excuse to push technology that could destroy privacy rights forever.

One of these Orwellian innovations is an invasive health ID card that will store an individual’s biometric information, and allow it to be scanned and shared. If an individual’s health ID data was considered up to par, they would be allowed to participate in society. If they could not meet state-mandated health standards, they would be shunned and quarantined as a result.

The tech firm CLEAR has invented the Health Pass to link biometric information with a federal CDC database. CNBC believes that these sort of devices could become a multibillion-dollar industry in the age of pandemics and biological warfare.

“Just like screening was forever changed post-9/11, in a post-Covid environment you’re going to see screening and public safety significantly shift,” CLEAR chairman and CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker said during an appearance on CNBC. “But this time it’s beyond airports — it’s sports stadiums, it’s retail, it’s office buildings, it’s restaurants.”

CLEAR technology has already been used by the TSA, sports stadiums, and other government bureaucracies. The firm believes that these relationships will make it easier for their Health Pass to become ubiquitous throughout society.

“Health Pass has launched, and we are in conversations with different partners across industries, including with restaurateur Danny Meyer, the New York Mets, RXR and the Las Vegas’ Covid-19 recovery task force,” said Maria Comella, CLEAR’s head of public affairs.

CLEAR’s intention with Health Pass is to link biometric data, such as an eye scan or a fingerprint, to information determining potential risk for the spread of coronavirus. Users would theoretically be forced to submit biometric information into a database to be able to go to work and function in society.

Just Futures Law, national and community groups, demand Trump Administration release its secret plan with tech companies to expand surveillance under COVID-19

Leave a comment

SOURCE: justfutureslaw.org

On Friday, Just Futures Law, in concert with MijenteMediaJustice, and Immigrant Defense Project and organizers around the country, filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and public record requests in order to ​demand more information on tech companies’ multi-million secret deal with the Trump Administration to build ​HHS Protect​ Now​, ​a new vast secretive data platform that has health records, hospital stays, and patient contacts.

Under COVID-19, governments and private companies are collecting vast amounts of personal information through new health surveillance tools like contact tracing apps, mobile location data, and temperature sensors. The Trump Administration has quietly granted ​companies like Palantir unprecedented access to personal data without limits, consent or accountability. ​We know little about how this information is being used, and most importantly, whether it is limited to fight COVID and protect our public health. This unlimited and unaccountable dragnet could be disastrous for communities of color. ​In Minnesota for example, the government is already ​repurposing contact tracing technology to track Black Lives Matter protesters.

Tear Gas and Pepper Spray Can Be Deadly, But the U.S. Won’t Regulate Police Use

Despite widespread use, chemical agents sold for police purposes aren’t monitored by any federal agency.

BY Terry J. Allen

This article was originally published by In These Times on April 3, 2000. Although this investigation was written 20 years ago, police and other law enforcement continue to use and misuse pepper and tear gasses on peaceful protesters in violation of manufacturers’ regulations and international treaties. Support for this article was provided by the Fund for Constitutional Governmen​t.

The tons of tear gas and pepper spray munitions Seattle police used on demonstrators and bystanders alike at the anti-WTO demonstrations last December contained chemicals implicated in lung problems, eye damage and even death. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the effects of these chemical weapons are not always confined to 15 or so minutes of intense pain and incapacitation. According to manufacturers’ documents, military research and medical literature, each of these agents carries short- and long-term health risks; various formulations contain potential carcinogens.

Tear gas and pepper spray cause health problems even when used within guidelines on healthy people. But in Seattle, as elsewhere, law enforcement violated manufacturers’ warnings and inevitably sprayed vulnerable populations such as people with diabetes, asthma, allergies or heart problems, as well as pregnant women, children and the elderly. “It was like a war zone,” says Russell Sparks, a student from Bellingham, Washington, who helped block a Seattle intersection on December 1. “The police rolled up in humvees, and I heard the clink, clink of cops jogging toward us. Within seconds the area was filled with gas and the air was pure white all around. I coughed and coughed. I felt like I was on fire, my friend and I both became hysterical. He fell down. A middle-aged man near me passed out, eyes open, shaking, dry heaving, twitching in the shoulders. A woman passed out face down. I tried to help but my eyes were burning and I was screaming for medical help.”

Three days later, Sparks still felt “serious flu symptoms, phlegmy, tired, fatigued, problems with eyes focusing, burning, slightly nauseous. I felt like it went into every pore.” He wasn’t alone. The persistence and severity of symptoms widely reported by demonstrators and hapless bystanders gave rise to speculation that some “mystery gas” had been used. Rumors of nerve gas spread like a toxic cloud across the Internet.

The truth is that tear gas and pepper spray alone can cause temporary blindness, respiratory problems, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue and disorientation. Symptoms may linger for days in otherwise healthy individuals. Out of 187 North Carolina corrections officers exposed to pepper spray under controlled conditions for training purposes, according to Duke University Medical Center study, eight had symptoms persisting for more than a week, including eye problems, chest problems, headaches and disorientation.

More seriously, reports by the Army and in prestigious medical journals have warned of respiratory arrest, pulmonary edema, and acute elevations in blood pressure associated with risk of stroke and heart attack. Military and industrial sources also point to the possibility of cancer, birth defects and DNA damage from these chemical weapons.

While tear gas and pepper spray are banned from use in war by an international treaty, domestic use is legal and nearly ubiquitous in the United States.   READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE.

$100 Billion Contact-Tracing Deal Negotiated 6 months BEFORE the pandemic

House Resolution 6666

Armed officers with no insignias, badges or name tags “guarding” protest in Washington D.C.

2 Comments

by Peter Penn

Journalist Alejandro Alvarez of WTOP news in Washington D.C. has been covering the protests in our nation’s capitol.  On June 3, he noticed that many of the security officers had no visible badges, insignias or name tags on their uniforms and posted photos of this on his Twitter account.

Alvarez later posted photos of a few insignias that were seen, that indicate some of these security officers were Federal Prison Officers from Texas.  The insignias included Three Rivers, and FCC Beaumont.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), whose Director is Michael Carvajal, is an agency under the Department of Justice and is responsible for the care, custody, and control of incarcerated individuals.  The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997 transferred responsibility for adult felons convicted of violating District of Columbia laws to the Bureau.

According to the Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General William Barr, one of the major functions of the Federal Bureau of Prisons is:

Counterterrorism

            *  Provide for public safety and security by focusing on preventing, disrupting, and responding to terrorist activities.

Are Americans exercising their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble considered felons or terrorists?

Who ordered these armed, uniformed officers to remove their identifying insignias, badges and name tags?  And, why?  How could there be any accountability for the actions of these armed, uniformed officers?

Rachel Maddow of MSNBC has done a couple of commentaries on this issue, and you can watch them HERE and HERE.  And see what Muriel Bowser, the Mayor of D.C., said about this HERE.

It seems that many people have also been wondering if any of the unidentified, armed officers could have been private military contractors.

Private military contractors were boots on the ground in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  In an article by James Ridgeway in Mother Jones, is stated “The Blackwater operators described their mission in New Orleans as ‘securing neighborhoods,’ as if they were talking about Sadr City. When National Guard troops descended on the city, the Army Times described their role as fighting ‘the insurgency in the city.’ Brigadier Gen. Gary Jones, who commanded the Louisiana National Guard’s Joint Task Force, told the paper, ‘This place is going to look like Little Somalia. We’re going to go out and take this city back. This will be a combat operation to get this city under control.’”

Recently, Defense Secretary Mark Esper described U.S. cities as a “battlespace” in a White House call with governors.

The U.S. is NOT a “battlespace” and there should NOT be unidentified, armed officers on our streets.

A dark cloud is covering the the country of America.  How has this happened?  There are careful choices that one must make in this day and age when it comes to a peaceful co-existence.  In order to attain this, a person must desire to make a better world with good intentions that show an unselfish love that goes beyond traditional norms and government regulations.  We are not talking about the “greater good or the greater whole” which is a carefully designed phrase that governments use for their own benefit, in order to group all people under one controllable umbrella which, in the end, lacks freedom and instills a form of control and tyranny.  There are examples today in many governments, including America where this is done.

An analysis of the present facts show that civil unrest which is meant to change or destroy either a government, innocent people, or cities by fire, is no different that a corrupt government that has an overreach that is beyond reason and aims to use its own power in illegal and devious ways by using fines, FEMA camps, high taxes, bribes, kickbacks and many other  avenues to enrich certain individuals within government circles for their own benefit.  Call it the deep state if you wish and its been happening for decades.  It is all documented in books that have been written which publishers were afraid to publish for they feared for themselves and their families.  Wikileaks published troves of criminal behavior in high places and yes, the information may still be out there.

So where do we go from here?  There is a great divide.  For America, anarchy or revolution is not the solution because  when the dust finally settles in a revolt, America and its people will experience a vast wasteland with no EBT cards, no monthly government checks, no food or gas, no electricity, and no tomorrow.  It will be as if another fire went through Paradise but will the next one be all of the major cities?  Let it be known, our two party system will not save America and the people for the nation is now too divided.

Friends, I cannot express enough that there are millions of precious families and other Americans who are now on the razors edge and the choices that need to be made today need to be totally unselfish and aligned with love for one another to where all the people will come and reason together.

In his own and perfect way, Martin Luther King did just that.  Yes, we do have some parts of a great blueprint to follow; whether it be the late Martin Luther King or other great statesmen and military heroes who died for an idea that is unique to America.  It is called freedom with one nation under God, and liberty and justice for all.  Will the masses once again embrace these heart felt tenets which have been commonly held by the people, black or white, while many of them made great sacrifices for their brothers and sisters through the centuries.  Let that not be in vain.

But for those of you who have been standing on the sidelines and watching the action, there is a great call for you as well to return and embrace
the very essence of what made America once a country that was like no other.  And what was it?  Light of the world, shine on me, love is the
answer.

Whistleblowers! Brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit taking place July 28-31 2020, in Washington D.C.

On tonight’s show John Leckrone will be discussing how the corona virus has been used as a tool to destroy and steal wealth and change the entire economic system globally. The saying “Don’t let a good crisis go to waste” There is no “crisis” yet the propaganda agents want you to believe there is. The new world order is ready to be fully implemented with absolute control over people and the complete takeover of the economy, food distribution and mandated vaccines. This is only the beginning of the story so tune in tonight to hear what dirty little secrets your corporate masters do not want you to know.

You know this will be good!  John is one of the most educated and astute individuals out there and has massive amounts of research and documentation to prove his positions.

Beyond 1984

George Orwell was compelled to write the book 1984 because he had a heart for Mankind and did not want to see the “free world” end up as a tyrannical country such as the former Soviet Union or Red China.  The wish to rule with unlimited power has been the desire of the ages.  Yet, here
we are again with the people of the world and leaders, on the razors edge of tyranny because of a plague that has infected not only the body but also those keen “minds” that know the difference between reason and treason, freedom and tyranny.

“Political solutions” follow when disasters and hardships come to the surface, while at the same time, “behavioral mod” used by governments may command “conformity” on a large scale, while, at the same time, love and compassion and normal human interactions are at the crossroads.  How might America navigate through an event such as this present calamity, if the people themselves have also been infected from within by a mega-virus of being divided and disunited from each other with regard to politics and religion?  This division must stop!

If we the people are to stand and heal from such a disaster and a mighty crushing whirlwind that has swept through the country, then it is necessary that we all come together in one accord and harmony like never before, lest the entire country be lost to a loveless, surveillance, high-tech superstate, with such a magnitude that even George Orwell would roll over in his grave at the very site of it!  With that said, thankfully, the Real ID mandate has been pushed to October 1, 2121 but hopefully will be banned forever.  We are not sheep to be led to the slaughter.

Let us all now be sensitive and have true compassion for one another. Yes, and let us come and reason together and save ourselves, our loved ones and the unlovable.  Let that be our endless mission, and when historians finally lay out what America  accomplished out of love for one another, this will be a reminder to all nations of how people should act and respond when calamity strikes.  May these words inspire us to renew our faith in all that we do.  Be blessed and go forward now and forever.

Is the corporate media-generated hysteria over what appears to be a normal influenza virus happenstance?

“The real destroyers and psychopathic misanthropes, however, are in high places. They are cynically and criminally exploiting the coronavirus—so far no more dangerous than seasonal flu—to shove their one-world agenda down our throats as easily frightened Americans run around like Chicken Little, begging the state to take care of us before the sky falls.”

I certainly don’t claim to be a financial wizard. In fact, at best, I have a rudimentary understanding of how the convoluted funny money economy works. However, you don’t need to fully comprehend the ins-and-outs of rigged monetary system to understand we’re in for big trouble and the coronavirus “pandemic” is not only accelerating the fall but will make the outcome far, far worse.

For more detail on the financial end of this disaster, read Mike Whitney’s Why Washington’s COVID-19 Relief Package Must Be Stopped!

No chance, however. As I write this, Congress passed a pork-laden “stimulus” bill.

If we can believe numbers put out by the CDC, as of Friday, March 27 there were 1,246 deaths in the US attributed to the virus. Compare this with the 1968 H3N2 “Hong Kong Flu.” It reportedly killed 100,000 people in the US and around a million around the world.

At the time, the response was not to lock down the country and destroy the livelihood of millions of Americans and usher in the severe violations of the Constitution we are now witnessing. More

The global efforts to cull the elderly from the populations is being exacerbated by the coronavirus.  Now, using the virus as an excuse, the elderly are being left to die as governments and medical practitioners have decided the lives of the elderly just aren’t as valuable as those younger.  The virus is a win-win for governments desperate to shed the elderly populations.

DOJ seeks new emergency powers amid coronavirus pandemic

The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the coronavirus spreads through the United States.

Documents reviewed by POLITICO detail the department’s requests to lawmakers on a host of topics, including the statute of limitations, asylum and the way court hearings are conducted. POLITICO also reviewed and previously reported on documents seeking the authority to extend deadlines on merger reviews and prosecutions.

One of the requests to Congress would allow the department to petition a judge to indefinitely detain someone during an emergency.

FAREWELL TO THE GOLDEN STATE?

Though fear, the coronavirus is clearly being used in California to further a long term goal which is held by certain members of the politically correct Marxist elite, and the agenda is sadly meant to destroy basic freedoms, along with the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights which was meant to protect the common people from past instances of government tyranny which had been very present in so many countries through the ages.  I’m not saying we should be stupid and not careful but we must always be aware of government encroachment upon our basic liberties and if not, we will become just like Red China in the twinkling of an eye.

Governor Newsom just declared that he has the “power” to declare martial law “if necessary.”  This poses the question.  Why would this option be on  the table when “law abiding, tax paying citizens” are mainly interested in helping themselves and one another by preventing the spread of a virus?
If there are persons or gangs out there that aim to break into stores or malls and either create damage or steal, are these people also Americans
or are they aliens who were allowed to cross the Southern border during the Obama years and even later?  Even so, the Governor deems that it would
be “necessary” to call in the National Guard as back up and use guns upon a mostly unarmed people if necessary?  But did he ever suggest that the
Southern border be closed?  At least Mexico closed their side.

One may ask, is not the sheriff of a county and the city police enough law enforcement to contain civil unrest?  City and county law enforcement
agencies were given, during the Obama years, plenty of military grad weapons to deal with events, & even grenade launchers, that demanded more
fire power. This would include SWAT Teams that are ready in various counties, to respond at a minutes notice to unlawful acts.  Yet, if the people do not pose a threat and they are only interested in taking care of their own health and others, why is one of the munition factories which I am familiar with already making more munitions right now for law enforcement agencies which may be called upon for possibly a fabricated marital law event?  And the coronavirus will become the catalyst to accelerate a New World Order agenda?  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that California is one such government that has been looking a long time for a reason to bring about a martial law event that would, in addition, greatly infringe upon one’s rights with regard to the 2nd amendment and the right to bear arms.

Since the Governor of California has now taken the state to the edge of the abyss, will a freedom loving people just stand by and allow another Kent State debacle, such as the 1970 event where unarmed students were mowed down by the Ohio National Guard? That massacre resulted in 4 dead students and 9 which were wounded when they were protesting.

“We the people” can no longer just look the other way when it comes to the basic freedoms which had been given to us after the end of the American Revolution while liberty and justice for all is now vanishing at light speed.  Abraham Lincoln warned us about tyranny in his speech back
in 1858 which related to the spirit of America’s freedom.

“Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism at your own doors…Trample on the rights of others, you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.” Edwardsville, Illinois, 9/11/1858.  President Abraham Lincoln of Liberty

Yesterday I went to several stores to buy a dozen eggs and a loaf of bread. There were no eggs to be found anywhere and the only bread I found was at Walmart in the “baking” section separate from the bread isle.

Now ask yourself these questions. Did the chickens all of a sudden stop laying eggs? Did they go on strike over pathetic environmental conditions at these corporate farms? Did the corona virus wipe out the chicken population? Did millions of tons of wheat magically disappear overnight? Did bread makers go out of business last week? Did the trucks stop delivering products to even the multinational corporations? Of course not.
I for one am disgusted by all of this. I know the difference between a real pandemic and propaganda 101. The news is 24 hours a day talking about a virus that has killed only a few people. I even question how many of those dead people were actually going to their graves due to the corona virus. Since most of these people supposedly killed by the virus were old that makes for a very useful group to target to exploit for propaganda purposes. How many died of other causes and yet were treated as if the virus killed them?

Trump to Declare a State of Emergency? Goodbye America!

6 Comments

What does this mean to us?

State of emergency

Legal declaration by a government allowing assumption of extraordinary powers

A state of emergency (also known as a state of calamity in the Philippines) is a situation in which a government is empowered to perform actions that it would normally not be permitted. A government can declare such state during a disaster, civil unrest, or armed conflict. Such declaration alerts citizens to change their normal behavior and orders government agencies to implement emergency plans. Justitium is its equivalent in Roman law—a concept in which the senate could put forward a final decree (senatus consultum ultimum) that was not subject to dispute.

States of emergency can also be used as a rationale or pretext for suspending rights and freedoms guaranteed under a country’s constitution or basic law.
Wikipedia

At the edge of the proverbial cliff

Here we are facing the final stage of the destruction of our country as a sovereign nation.  We, as a supposedly free people, are about to face a national Armaghedon.  Under an emergency declaration, our constitution, or what is left of our rights and protections, are cast aside to make way for the reorganizing of the worlds economies and the subjugation of all populations.  All of this achieved by the hyping up of a virus that does not meet any standard for being declared an epidemic or pandemic.

Just to make sure you reach the proper level of fear, university’s, college’s and public schools are closed in numerous locations across the country.  The common connection in each of these instances is their tie to federal funding.  Want to keep your funding?  CLOSE YOUR DOORS!  That will scare them!

Coronavirus vs. the Mass Surveillance State: Which Poses the Greater Threat?

John Whitehead’s Commentary

Coronavirus vs. the Mass Surveillance State: Which Poses the Greater Threat?

John Whitehead

“If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.”—Philip K. Dick

Emboldened by the citizenry’s inattention and willingness to tolerate its abuses, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expands its powers.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

It doesn’t even matter what the nature of the crisis might be—civil unrest, the national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters”—as long as it allows the government to justify all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security.

Now we find ourselves on the brink of a possible coronavirus contagion.

I’ll leave the media and the medical community to speculate about the impact the coronavirus will have on the nation’s health, but how will the government’s War on the Coronavirus impact our freedoms?

For a hint of what’s in store, you can look to China—our role model for all things dystopian—where the contagion started.

In an attempt to fight the epidemic, the government has given its surveillance state apparatus—which boasts the most expansive and sophisticated surveillance system in the world—free rein. Thermal scanners using artificial intelligence (AI) have been installed at train stations in major cities to assess body temperatures and identify anyone with a fever. Facial recognition cameras and cell phone carriers track people’s movements constantly, reporting in real time to data centers that can be accessed by government agents and employers alike. And coded color alerts (red, yellow and green) sort people into health categories that correspond to the amount of freedom of movement they’re allowed: “Green code, travel freely. Red or yellow, report immediately.”

Mind you, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the Chinese surveillance state had already been hard at work tracking its citizens through the use of some 200 million security cameras installed nationwide. Equipped with facial recognition technology, the cameras allow authorities to track so-called criminal acts, such as jaywalking, which factor into a person’s social credit score.

Social media credit scores assigned to Chinese individuals and businesses categorize them on whether or not they are “good” citizens. A real-name system—which requires people to use government-issued ID cards to buy mobile sims, obtain social media accounts, take a train, board a plane, or even buy groceries—coupled with social media credit scores ensures that those blacklisted as “unworthy” are banned from accessing financial markets, buying real estate or travelling by air or train. Among the activities that can get you labeled unworthy are taking reserved seats on trains or causing trouble in hospitals.

America’s Homeless Middle Class

by stuartbramhall

How Poor People Survive in the USA

DW (2019)

Film Review

This documentary is about homeless members of middle class America whose wages are too low to cover rent. Filmmakers visit San Diego, Los Angeles, Richmond Virginia, Appalachia and Waco Texas.

In San Diego they film a parking lot in which thirty people working as Uber drivers, security guards, secretaries, cleaners, carers and computer technicians sleep in their cars overnight. A charity provides them with portapotties, a water point, and an open air kitchen facility. One of the carers who sleeps there works nine hour days seven days a week.

In Los Angeles, which filmmakers refer to as the homeless capitol of the US (with 59,000 homeless), the documentary profiles a full time volunteer who builds wooden tiny houses (which have been legally banned by the city council) for people currently living tents.

In Richmond, filmmakers follow local sheriffs carrying out an eviction at gunpoint. They also visit one of the budget motels that have sprung up in the Richmond outskirts due to the city’s high number of evictions.*

In Appalachia, they visit one of the poorest counties in the nation, where volunteers run a daily food truck to distribute food to the area’s children. They also profile a military-style field hospital that provides once-a-year medical and dental treatment for the uninsured. The field hospital, held on a local sports field, is funded by a national charity and staffed by volunteer health providers.

In Waco, the filmmakers visit a church program that recruits candidates from all over the US to pay 60 dollars to experience sleeping rough first hand.


*In Virginia, a landlord can legally evict a tenant once their rent is five days past due. More

The Twilight of Liberty: the State Destroys Alternative Media

Leave a comment

It should be obvious by now what the plan is for Julian Assange—psychological torture resulting in either a total breakdown or an untimely death, the latter supported by the psychopaths who claim they are our leaders. This psychological torture was noted, with standard corporate media disinterest, by Nils Melzer, an internationally recognized expert on torture treatment.

“Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life,” Melzer, UN special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, said in a statement last week.

Melzer demanded “that London immediately take measures to protect Assange’s health and dignity… However, what we have seen from the UK Government is outright contempt for Mr. Assange’s rights and integrity… Despite the medical urgency of my appeal, and the seriousness of the alleged violations, the UK has not undertaken any measures of investigation, prevention and redress required under international law.”

In America, the UK, and much of Europe, the financial elite and its political class consider truth-telling a cardinal sin, a crime punishable by death—not by lethal injection, but slowly and sadistically under a torture system tweaked by the CIA and put into action in rendition dungeons scattered around the world.

An article at Strategic Culture Foundation summarizes:

Assange has provided vital information to the international public which demonstrates systematic corruption by Washington and its allies. For telling the truth, he is now being persecuted, just as his whistleblowing colleagues, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden are. Manning has been repeatedly imprisoned in the US, while Snowden has had to seek asylum in Russia for fear of being summarily incarcerated as a “traitor” if he returns to the US.

In fact, all of us, those who look beyond the headlines and ferret out the truth, are half a dozen steps away from suffering Julian Assange’s fate.

The national security state and its political class plan to kill Assange, keep Chelsea Manning in prison and find a way to return Snowden to the US for a show trial and life behind bars (or execution).

It must, however, first salt the earth where truth is harvested. Thousands of blogs, similar to this one, and websites contradicting and disassembling approved narratives, will be targeted for extinction. More

The FBI’s Secret Facial Surveillance Program Now Faces Lawsuit

Prep For That

Author: Jim Satney

PrepForThat’s Editor and lead writer for political, survival, and weather categories.

Countries around the world, including the United States, are in the midst of a facial recognition technology race. The closer that our world gets to sustainable, impactful facial recognition, the more privacy the general public loses. We’ve already seen evidence of how nefarious facial recognition technology can become. Just take Hong Kong’s recent protests, as an example of how such “innovation” can cater to authoritarian regimes.

While you may feel this type of things “only happen in places like Hong Kong,” you’re naivety to the United States technology race may end up crippling you.

That’s because the FBI most certainly partakes in facial data collection. They also collect information on how you walk and your voice. The FBI, according to a new lawsuit filed by the ACLU, can match 640 million images of United States adults. And worse more, the FBI is helping Amazon further develop recognition surveillance technology.

The FBI working with Big Tech could yield dire consequences for citizens not only in the United States but around the world.

If you’re interested in the backstory on Jeffrey Epstein—a story largely ignored by the corporate media—read Whitney Webb’s How the CIA, Mossad and “the Epstein Network” are Exploiting Mass Shootings to Create an Orwellian Nightmare.

The subhead reads: “Following another catastrophic mass shooting or crisis event, Orwellian ‘solutions’ are set to be foisted on a frightened American public by the very network connected, not only to Jeffrey Epstein, but to a litany of crimes and a frightening history of plans to crush internal dissent in the United States.”

Webb mentions convicted felon Oliver North:

Perhaps most disturbing of all, whatever technological solution is adopted by the Trump administration [to address mass shootings], it is set to use a controversial database first developed as part of a secretive U.S. government program that involved notorious Iran-Contra figures like Oliver North as a means of tracking and flagging potential American dissidents for increased surveillance and detention in the event of a vaguely defined “national emergency.”

North and associates used PROMIS (Prosecutors Management Information Systems) software to build this database. The software has a rather colorful past. “The PROMIS software was created by INSLAW Inc., a company owned by a former NSA intelligence officer named William Hamilton,” writes Ed Encho.

The software was modified for espionage purposes to include a ‘back door’ that could be used for spying on those that it was sold to… It is important to keep in mind the period when PROMIS was stolen in the early 1980’s and the fact that the technology boom was still years in the future which should give one an idea to just how far advanced and therefore how important that it was to those who would use it in order to promote a sinister agenda.

Is the U.S. Government the Enemy of the People? America’s Lost Liberties, Post-9/11

4 Comments

With our own government fast becoming our enemy, we have become a police state. We have few if any rights left to us. A corrupted judiciary, militarized police, war weapons turned on the public, and total surveillance threatening us all….we have no where to go…nowhere to hide…how does that fake political party look to you now?

John W. Whitehead, Constitutional Attorney

“These are the times that try men’s souls.” ― Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

Take heed, America.

Our losses are mounting with every passing day.

What began with the post-9/11 passage of the USA Patriot Act  has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.

Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, police violence and the like—all of which have been sanctioned by Congress, the White House and the courts—our constitutional freedoms have…

Rutherford Institute Launches Inquiry Into Government Use of Drivers’ License Photos to Build Facial Recognition Database, Track Citizens

Leave a comment

For Immediate Release: September 5, 2019

The Rutherford Institute

CHICAGO, Ill. — Pushing back against the expansion of secret government surveillance programs at the expense of individual privacy, The Rutherford Institute is asking the State of Illinois to disclose information about its participation in the federal government’s scheme to establish a massive facial recognition database by collecting the drivers’ license photographs of millions of Americans.

In a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made on behalf of Illinois resident Dmitry Feofanov, The Rutherford Institute is seeking details about the federal government’s facial recognition program, which allows government agents to track citizens whenever they are in public. The request comes after it was disclosed in July 2019 that the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have mined information kept by state DMVs to create a massive database of biometric photos and personal information without the consent of citizens.

“Surveillance, DNA and biometric technologies have become convenient tools in the hands of government agencies to render null and void the Constitution’s requirements of privacy and its prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “For a long time, the government was required to at least observe some basic restrictions on when, where and how it could access someone’s biometrics and use it against them. That is no longer the case. While the Fourth Amendment was created to prevent government officials from tracking a person’s movements or searching an individual’s person or property without a warrant and probable cause—evidence that some kind of criminal activity was afoot—the founders could scarcely have imagined a world in which we needed protection against widespread government breaches of our privacy on a biometric level.”

MAKE THE GOVERNMENT PLAY BY THE RULES OF THE CONSTITUTION: SUPPORT THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Facial recognition programs, which can be used to identify people in photos, video, or in real-time, employ sophisticated technology to identify individuals using their faces. Advanced cameras scan a person’s features and then compare the “biometric” data obtained with a database of biometric photographs to determine the person’s identity. Law enforcement currently use mobile devices to identify people during police stops.

The FBI’s Next Generation Identification system has dramatically expanded the government’s surveillance capacity by using a variety of photos and other biometric data, cross-referenced against the nation’s growing network of surveillance cameras, to not only track people but create a permanent “recognition” file on them within the government’s databases. However, the government’s capacity to track citizens is dependent on its database of biometric photographs of identified individuals.

In an effort to expand the government’s database, federal law enforcement agencies, and the FBI and ICE in particular, have been obtaining the photographs and associated identities of persons from state agencies that obtain biometric photographs in connection with issuing drivers’ licenses. According to the Government Accounting Office, since 2011, the FBI has conducted over 390,000 facial-recognition searches of federal and local databases, including state drivers’ license databases. Federal investigators have also established ongoing working relationships with state licensing officials. In its FOIA request to the Illinois Secretary of State, which is responsible for issuing drivers’ licenses in the state, The Rutherford Institute is seeking to know the extent to which the state has disclosed residents’ drivers’ license photographs to any federal or other government agencies.

The Rutherford Institute’s FOIA request is available here.

Establishment Right and Left Call for COINTELPRO 2.O

Leave a comment

by Kurt Nimmo

Both heads of the two-headed establishment political hydra want to resurrect COINTELPRO, the FBI’s illegal subversion program, in response to speech they oppose and want outlawed.

In August, The Verge (owned by liberal Vox Media and founded by former CIA asset Markos Moulitsas) and the National Review, the failing neocon journal edited by Rich Lowry, posted articles on how to best undermine the First Amendment right of millions of Americans.

The Verge cites a recent paper by N. F. Johnson and a collection of academics. Johnson and his fellows compare online “hate and extremist narratives” to a chemistry project.

“We observe the current hate network rapidly rewiring and self-repairing at the micro level when attacked, in a way that mimics the formation of covalent bonds in chemistry,” they write.

Because of this dynamic, the authors suggest fighting “hate” (unacceptable political speech) by inserting a “population in a pre-engineered format” within a targeted “hate-cluster” and destroying it from within.

This is a tactic taken right out of the COINTELPRO handbook.

Branko Marcetic writes:

As the Church Committee, a congressional committee set up in 1975 to analyze the excesses of US law enforcement and intelligence agencies over the preceding decades, put it, what followed was a secret war against those citizens it considers threats to the established order…

The bread and butter of COINTELPRO operations was the use of wiretaps, anonymous letters, informants, and other means of subterfuge to, in the Bureau’s own words, foster factionalism and create suspicion within groups, bring individuals into disrepute before the American public, and create disruption and discord among such groups and movements in order to destroy the Left, or at least render it useless.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To all of you who dutifully supplied all that information to the Department of Motor Vehicles so that you might obtain that special gold star on your driver license…. I don’t even know what to say to you. I want to ask you why you did not stand up and refuse this infringement of your right to travel freely, without being tagged and marked in a tracking system meant to be used against you if it should become convenient to do so.

I know….you haven’t done anything wrong and you have nothing to hide so you don’t mind if they spy on you, track you, impede your right to travel freely, and whatever else they can come up with to let you know, YOU ARE THE ENEMY THE GOVERNMENT FEARS MOST.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Government: Please let me save you some time and put your paranoid collective minds to rest. Tap into that massive data collection center you built down there in Utah. There is a plethora of information on file there about me (along with everyone else), which details every possible bit and piece of information about me, whether relevant or not, useful or not, true or not, in volumes so massive that it boggles the mind. You have collected:

  • every email I have written or received,
  • every phone call I made or received,
  • every comment or interaction I have had anywhere at any time for any reason,
  • and stored all of it in a massive and useless mountain of information that has no other purpose than to assuage your fear and,
  • to be used possibly in the future against me.

For instance: In case you decide you need to construct a fictitious case against me for having the audacity to question your motives and intentions when you violate our Constitution meant to protect us from you should you lose your collective minds at some point which, obviously, you are in the process of doing.

But therein lies the biggest problem. You have amassed such a massive amount of pointless data bits about each of us, that the idea of this being used to identify possible terrorists or terrorist activity is exposed as the fraud that it is. You aren’t tracking terrorists or their activity….you are tracking us.

I can actually understand your desire to control absolutely the very people you were charged with representing. After all, you have done much to betray us, to abuse your offices, and profited quite handsomely while doing so. More

The Australians are back!  The last few weeks have seen major activity behind the scenes.  The first Australian Summit on trustee (guardianship) abuse and estate theft was held.  Approximately 100 victims attended and spoke.  With media, the shadow Attorney General Mr David Jantezkin in attendance, the 3 hour planned summit was extended to 5 hours to allow everyone to speak.

Highlighted at the Summit were the:

  • Physical & Psychological Isolation- Usually very quick
  • Bed side hearings
  • Victims drugged and moved without notice
  • Notice they do this when the victim is close to family and loved ones
  • Order placed to control visitations

In the midst of all this,  the Australian government tries to cover its tracks and close all the loopholes in what is an expanding police state.  Everything is being privatized including titles on property.  Even the banking royal commissioner is upset over the growing distrust of the government.  The efforts currently appear centered on property and financial interests.

We will also have several family members of victims calling in.

Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

3 Comments

 The Rutherford Institute

By John W. Whitehead
August 12, 2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence.

Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal

Yes, gun violence is a problem in America, although violent crime generally remains at an all-time low.

Yes, mass shootings are a problem in America, although while they are getting deadlier, they are not getting more frequent.

Yes, mentally ill individuals embarking on mass shooting sprees are a problem in America.

However, tighter gun control laws and so-called “intelligent” background checks fail to protect the public from the most egregious perpetrator of gun violence in America: the U.S. government.

Consider that five years after police shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old man in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been no relief from the government’s gun violence.

Here’s what we’ve learned about the government’s gun violence since Ferguson, according to The Washington Post: If you’re a black American, you’ve got a greater chance of being shot by police. If you’re an unarmed black man, you’re four times more likely to be killed by police than an unarmed white man. Most people killed by police are young men. Since 2015, police have shot and killed an average of 3 people per day. More than 2,500 police departments have shot and killed at least one person since 2015. And while the vast majority of people shot and killed by police are armed, their weapons ranged from guns to knives to toy guns.  READ MORE HERE:

Sonic Weapons Introduction

1 Comment

A variety of high powered sonic weapons (SW) exist spanning the infrasonic, ultrasonic, and audible ranges. Because they are weapons which direct sound onto a target, and sound is energy, they can be considered directed-energy weapons.

These weapons produce both psychological and physical effects. They include highly directional devices which can transmit painful audible sound into an individual’s ear at great distances and infrasonic generators which can shoot acoustic projectiles hundreds of meters causing a blunt impact upon a target.

Infrasonic generators can cause negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, or depression, as well as biological symptoms like nausea, vomiting, organ damage, burns, or death—depending on the frequency and power level. Most of these weapons function between the frequency range of about 1 Hz to 30 kHz. These frequencies occur within the following waves: Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) 1 Hz to 30 Hz, Super Low Frequency (SLF) 30 Hz to 300 Hz, Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) 300 Hz to 3 kHz, and Very Low Frequency (VLF) 3 kHz to 30 kHz.1

Within the ELF region of the spectrum, there is a type of sound called infrasound, which occurs between 3 and 20 Hz. Infrasound is usually not heard, but it can be if the power level is sufficient. Next, audible noise begins for most people from about 20 Hz up to 20 kHz, and occurs between the upper ELF into the VLF ranges. Ultrasound begins in the VLF range at about 20 kHz, just above human hearing.

Another sound factor is power, usually described using a unit of measurement called a decibel. Decibels are used to measure the power of audible and inaudible sound, both of which produce effects. Any sound begins to become physically painful at about 120 decibels, although at lower levels it can cause discomfort. At about 130 decibels it becomes unbearable. In this chapter, words such as intensity, level, power, pressure, and decibel, are all used to describe sound power.

Resonance

All of the chemical reactions in the cells of living organisms are caused by the electromagnetic oscillations, pulsations, and vibrations, which are collectively referred to as vibrational frequencies. All physical matter is vibrating at its own vibrational frequency. READ MORE HERE!!

Monsters with Human Faces: The Tyranny of the Police State Disguised as Law-and-Order

3 Comments

By John W. Whitehead
July 24, 2019

“But these weren’t the kind of monsters that had tentacles and rotting skin, the kind a seven-year-old might be able to wrap his mind around—they were monsters with human faces, in crisp uniforms, marching in lockstep, so banal you don’t recognize them for what they are until it’s too late.” ― Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Enough already.

Enough with the distractions. Enough with the partisan jousting.

Enough with the sniping and name-calling and mud-slinging that do nothing to make this country safer or freer or more just.

We have let the government’s evil-doing, its abuses, power grabs, brutality, meanness, inhumanity, immorality, greed, corruption, debauchery and tyranny go on for too long.

We are approaching a reckoning.

This is the point, as the poet W. B. Yeats warned, when things fall apart and anarchy is loosed upon the world.

We have seen this convergence before in Hitler’s Germany, in Stalin’s Russia, in Mussolini’s Italy, and in Mao’s China: the rise of strongmen and demagogues, the ascendency of  over deep-seated principles, the warring nationalism that seeks to divide and conquer, the callous disregard for basic human rights and dignity, and the silence of people who should know better.

Yet no matter how many times the world has been down this road before, we can’t seem to avoid repeating the deadly mistakes of the past. This is not just playing out on a national and international scale. It is wreaking havoc at the most immediate level, as well, creating rifts and polarities within families and friends, neighborhoods and communities that keep the populace warring among themselves and incapable of presenting a united front in the face of the government’s goose-stepping despotism.

We are definitely in desperate need of a populace that can stand united against the government’s authoritarian tendencies.

Surely we can manage to find some common ground in the midst of the destructive, disrupting, diverting, discordant babble being beamed down at us by the powers-that-be? After all, there are certain self-evident truths—about the source of our freedoms, about the purpose of government, about how we expect to be treated by those we appoint to serve us in government offices, about what to do when the government abuses our rights and our trust, etc.—that we should be able to agree on, no matter how we might differ politically.  READ MORE HERE

U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Uphold Ban on Double Jeopardy & Protect Citizens From Successive Prosecutions

2 Comments

For Immediate Release: June 18, 2019

The Rutherford Institute

WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to protect citizens from being prosecuted for the same crime by federal and state governments, a fundamental right enshrined in the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause.

In a 7-2 ruling in Gamble v. United States, the Supreme Court affirmed the “separate sovereigns” rule, an exception to the Double Jeopardy doctrine that allows states and the federal government to prosecute a person successive times for the same act, even if the person is found not guilty in the first trial. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Neil Gorsuch dissented, warning that the Court’s majority had failed to recognize that the people—not the government—should be the ultimate sovereigns of power. The Rutherford Institute filed an amicus brief in Gamble, arguing that the “separate sovereigns” doctrine exception—which recognizes federal and state governments as separate sovereigns with distinct prosecutorial powers—violates the Fifth Amendment by enabling the government to abuse its power to prosecute, which is reflected the nation’s harsh and overly-punitive criminal justice system.

“As Justice Gorsuch recognized in his dissent, ‘A free society does not allow its government to try the same individual for the same crime until it’s happy with the result,’” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “Despite the Constitution’s clear mandate against double jeopardy, the Supreme Court has given the state and federal governments the green light to continue to subject the citizenry to these prosecutorial abuses.”

MAKE THE GOVERNMENT PLAY BY THE RULES OF THE CONSTITUTION: SUPPORT THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
The Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that no person shall “be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb[.]” This prohibition embodies the fundamental principle that it is unfair and an abuse of power for the government to seek to put a person on trial for a criminal offense after that person has already been tried and acquitted (or convicted) of that same offense. However, in a series of cases dating back to the 1850’s, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that, because the states and the federal government are “separate sovereigns,” a person can be put on trial for an offense by the federal government even though the person was tried for the same offense in a state court.

In 2015, Terence Gamble was stopped by police while driving with a faulty headlight, and a subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a handgun. Because Gamble had previously been convicted of a felony, his possession of the gun was illegal. He was tried and convicted in state court for illegal possession of a firearm and sentenced to one year imprisonment. While his state conviction was pending, the federal government also charged Gamble with being a felon in possession of a firearm based on the same event that was the basis for his state conviction. Gamble raised the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause as a defense to the federal charge, but the federal trial court ruled it was forced to reject the defense because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s “separate sovereigns” decisions. The federal court then sentenced Gamble to 46 months’ imprisonment, meaning that Gamble would be imprisoned for nearly three years more than if only the state sentence had been imposed.

In its amicus brief in support of Gamble, The Rutherford Institute urged the Supreme Court to overrule the “separate sovereigns” doctrine because it enables a system where federal and state prosecutors and law enforcement officers can work together against a defendant to apply overbearing institutional pressure.

The Supreme Court’s opinion and The Rutherford Institute’s amicus brief in Gamble v. United States are available at www.rutherford.org. Attorney Elliott Harding assisted the Institute in presenting the arguments in Gamble.
