PrepForThat - If SHTF Happens

 

Samsung AI Center’s Moscow research team have combined with Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology to publish a new document that shows how terrifying new software can be used to create 3-dimensional talking heads. The images are created via still images. The software’s creations are nothing short of stunning and scary. It can take a regular, common image of anyone and produce what appears to be a video communication from that person. Of course, the implications of such technology are unsettling. This means rival governments will be capable of serving up a completely fake video of politicians. It also means countries such as the United States could leverage such technology for its own purposes.

You need to read this!!  Please go HERE to see the full report and examples of this terrifying technology.  You know this will be put to no good use.  Just another weapon in their arsenal of weapons to use against all of humanity.

 

Police To Use TSA-Style Scanners To Spy On People In Public Places

“The spread of surveillance devices helps private corporations and law enforcement track and identify everyone; it does absolutely nothing to stop terrorism.”

TSA-style body scanners are coming to public spaces, and that should scare the hell out of everyone.

If you thought the NYPD’s Z-Backscatter vans and police mini-Z’s were intrusive, you have not seen anything yet.

Soon, nowhere will be safe from Big Brother’s prying eyes, as police prepare to use HEXWAVE to spy on people in public spaces.

Last week the Salt Lake Tribune revealed that the Utah Attorney General and law enforcement are partnering with Liberty Defense, a 3D image scanning company that makes its money from scanning the public in real-time. (3D means capturing rich information (size, shape, depth) about the detection space. It can detect any material that has a physical form.)

Let’s start with their name- calling yourself Liberty Defense is an affront to liberty-minded Americans who do not want to be secretly spied on by Big Brother. Their tag line “Protecting Communities And Preserving Peace of Mind” is the exact opposite of what this device does.

Any device that is used to spy on the public is just that: a surveillance device. It is not a Defense of our Liberty.

As Fox Now 13 reported, police will use Liberty Defense’s, HEXWAVE to spy on people at mass gatherings like concerts, malls, stadiums, public transit stops and government buildings.

“HEXWAVE could be deployed at mass gatherings like concerts, malls, stadiums, public transit stops and government buildings” Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, said.

I’M TERRIFIED OF MY NEW TV: WHY I’M SCARED TO TURN THIS THING ON — AND YOU’D BE, TOO

I just bought a new TV. The old one had a good run, but after the volume got stuck on 63, I decided it was time to replace it. I am now the owner of a new “smart” TV, which promises to deliver streaming multimedia content, games, apps, social media, and Internet browsing. Oh, and TV too.

The only problem is that I’m now afraid to use it. You would be too — if you read through the 46-page privacy policy.

The amount of data this thing collects is staggering. It logs where, when, how, and for how long you use the TV. It sets tracking cookies and beacons designed to detect “when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message.” It records “the apps you use, the websites you visit, and how you interact with content.”

It ignores “do-not-track” requests as a considered matter of policy.

It also has a built-in camera — with facial recognition. The purpose is to provide “gesture control” for the TV and enable you to log in to a personalized account using your face. On the upside, the images are saved on the TV instead of uploaded to a corporate server. On the downside, the Internet connection makes the whole TV vulnerable to hackers who have demonstrated the ability to take complete control of the machine.

More troubling is the microphone. The TV boasts a “voice recognition” feature that allows viewers to control the screen with voice commands. But the service comes with a rather ominous warning:

“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.” Got that?

Don’t say personal or do sensitive stuff in front of the TV.

You may not be watching, but the telescreen is listening. More

RFID in clothing and facial recognition too!

We picked this up on www.spychips.com.  This video is dated 2003. 

The video shows the implanting of RFID chips in clothing tagged to a customer number and facial recognition.  If this doesn’t give you the creeps about REAL ID and the intent to track every movement we make, I don’t know what will. 

Take a few minutes and watch how this works and then ask yourself how many pieces of clothing you may have purchased containing the hidden plastic strip in the labels.

DNA collection….Why do they want it?

2 Comments

I wrote recently concerning the collection of newborn DNA that has been going on virtually under the radar for the last ten years.  The article produced a major response from parents from all over the country who had no idea that they had signed anything agreeing to the testing.  The research for that article produced some other information that should be of interest.  Marti

Headquarters: Department of the Army

Excerpted page 1:

 

As of December 2002, the Repository, now known as the “Armed Forces Repository of Specimen Samples for the Identification of Remains,”6 contained the DNA of approximately 3.2 million service members.7   According to a recent DOD directive, the “provision of specimen samples by military members shall be mandatory.”8 The direction to a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine to contribute a DNA sample is a lawful order which, if disobeyed, subjects the service member to prosecution under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).9 If convicted at court-martial for the offense of violating a lawful general order, the service member carries the lifelong stigma of a federal felony conviction, and faces a maximum punishment of a dishonorable discharge, confinement for two years, total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and reduction to the lowest enlisted grade.1

I can understand the concept that this database could be used for battlefield identification, but knowing our history of leaving our dead and prisoners of war behind to facilitate the appeasement of other interests I do wonder why the Pentagon is keeping the DNA stored in a database for 75 years.  As the excerpt above shows, the DNA samples are not voluntary and there is no right to have the samples destroyed when military service ends.    

 

This database of 3.2 million military members is routinely accessed and shared with law enforcement among other entities.  This is the CODIS database that is the result of linking unrelated databases.  Military DNA data is merged with criminal data, medical data, genealogical data, newborn DNA data, insurance data, and multiple other applications crossing state and international lines.  And yes, Virginia, this information is shared with foreign governments.

 

The DNA of individuals arrested is now collected routinely, even on misdemeanor cases and merged with collected databases from the military and then merged with international databases.

 

Ownership of the military DNA repository contents resides with the government.  This means they can use it for whatever purpose they deem appropriate.  The combination of surveillance, biometrics, and video camera’s along with facial recognition are now combined with DNA databases to form an identifiable file on almost anyone and everyone. The representative of the repository sites the new found ability to implement routine mass surveillance of large segments of the population without the need for warrants or formal investigations.   

 

 

It would seem that since so many of us are repelled by the idea of being forced to comply with invasive RFID chips, or other biometric identifiers, the government has found some really innovative ways to ID and spy on us at will, and at the same time to collect body tissues and samples that identify not only who we are, but whom we came from.  Entire families can now be identified going forward and backward for generations. Why would our government, or any government for that matter find this necessary?

 

As it turns out, the same government that has denounced stem cell research and refuses to fund it, is at the same time allowing and funding fetal tissue research through the Department of Defense.   It is the same government that is conducting bio-weapons development with an eye on targeting specific DNA traits that include ethnicity.  It is the same government that has established bio labs across the country including in many of our universities, engaging in the development of ever more lethal strains of weaponized diseases including pandemic producing viruses.    

 

The newborn database is only part of a larger scheme to assemble a multi-national DNA database that will encompass every individual, not only in our country, but in every country in the world. 

 

One has to wonder what the end objective is.  DNA is so specific to the individual, that this information should not be shared or contributed unless specifically looking for disease markers, or in other specific instances.  The idea that it is being actively collected, with no real explanation being given for the true purpose, is at best, unsettling. 

 

If anyone out there has any conclusive evidence that would indicate that there is a legitimate objective in this collection of DNA, other than identifying dead military personnel, I would like to see it.  As it is, I can’t find anything other than what relates to government sponsored surveillance and spying.

 

Anyone??
