Google Colludes With Russian Government To Delete Links, Censor Russian Activists Reader 02/09/2019 (Sat) 15:39:34 Id: 11b70e [Preview] No. 13934 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Russian news reports say that Google has agreed with national authorities to delete links to websites banned in Russia.

The daily Vedomosti reported Thursday that Google has reached an agreement with the Russian state media oversight agency, Roskomnadzor, to regularly receive updated lists of banned sites and delete links to them upon review. The newspaper says Google has already removed about 70 percent of the banned websites from its search results.

The RIA Novosti news agency quoted Roskomnadzor as saying it has established a “constructive dialogue” with Google.

Last December, Roskomnadzor fined Google 500,000 rubles ($7,600) for failing to delete links to the banned sites. It threatened to cut access to Google if it fails to comply with the demand.

“We’re committed to enabling access to information for the benefit of our users in Russia and around the world,” Google spokesman Nu Wexler said. The company offered no further official comment.

This is exactly the reason I still truly believe that the Russian investigations are actually political "witch hunts" and when you see the irony its pretty obvious. The Clintons did deals with Russia selling American uranium. John Podesta's brother, Tony Podesta, has lucrative business deals with both Russia and Ukrainian lobbying groups associated with Russia. Enriched in rubles. We now see these American Big Tech firms dealing with Russia.... and yet, the only ones who get investigated are associated with conservatives or to a conservative party? Its downright hypocritical and the only common sense conclusion to the hypocrisy is that it is indeed deliberate, meaning it is all political.

Smartphones Monitor How Goyim Walk, Type And Spend Their Free Time Reader 02/08/2019 (Fri) 22:42:20 Id: 430a9a [Preview] No. 13929 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Forget Face ID: a collaboration between the Defense Department and a NY-based company called TWOSENSE.AI, has birthed an artificial intelligence algorithm that could be embedded in smartphones and will be able to identify the device owner by the way they talk, type, walk and even by how "they spend their free time".

TWOSENSE.AI is working with the Department of Defense to build a SaaS product that could eventually replace access cards currently used to verify the identities of DOD employees when logging onto the department's networks.

The AI constantly monitors the user's behavior, including how they carry the device, type on it and even walk. The system then automatically verifies the user's identity using these parameters, enabling them to work seamlessly on their secure network without having to login each time.

Similar to privacy-stripping developments in China, the system updates a "trust score" as it tracks these metrics, based on the algorithm's level of confidence that the correct person is using the device. Jeremy Corey, chief of the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Cyber Innovation Division said in May: "The score is checked to ensure it meets the desired threshold. This threshold is predetermined by the organization we are piloting our prototype with. This could be configured by the application owner, so long as it is within the authorizing official's accepted level of risk."

The $2.4 million contract was awarded in October through the Army's other transaction authority, which allows certain agencies to sign contracts for advanced research outside of the scope of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. 75 prototypes were supposed to have already been delivered last year for testing, according to a technical director at DISA. After testing, the technology will be embedded in certain smartphones at the manufacturing level before being acquired by the DOD. We're guessing this excludes Huawei from becoming a potential partner on the project.

Dr. Dawud Gordon, CEO of TWOSENSE.AI said: “Both DISA and TWOSENSE.AI believe that continuous authentication is the cornerstone of securing identity. Behavior-based authentication is invisible to the user, therefore it can be used continuously without creating any extra work.”

The project is reportedly working through "existing partnerships" between DISA, Qualcomm and Samsung.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr Explains How Big Pharma Completely Owns Congress Reader 02/07/2019 (Thu) 13:17:45 Id: 16d53d [Preview] No. 13916 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Robert F. Kennedy Jr, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Children’s Health Defence (a worthy cause if you’re looking for one to donate to) has been fighting against big corporations that have taken over and undermined American government health regulatory agencies for a number of years. One of the most recent examples is when Robert F. Kennedy Jr represented Dewayne Johnson, a school groundskeeper who successfully brought forward a lawsuit alleging glyphosate caused his cancer. That’s right, he won!

There are currently thousands of cases pending against Monsanto, which is only one of multiple powerful companies influencing agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And to think, these are the agencies providing us with ‘science’ in order to get the food, medications, and other products produced by these big corporations to be deemed safe. Not only that, but these agencies are providing educational resources to medical schools, which Big Pharma has completely taken over as well.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=w9y-OTaJPOQ [Embed]

It’s truly unbelievable that, in this day and age, education has turned into brainwashing. Science is corrupted, altered, changed, ignored, and swept under the rug just because it threatens the interests of a few powerful people and the corporations they hide behind.

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)


Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s pesticide Round Up, is a perfect example, as science has been showing for decades how incredibly harmful it is for human health and the environment, yet it’s approved as ‘safe’ for use in the western world. It’s no mystery why glyphosate is illegal in the majority of countries around the world. The same goes for genetically modified foods, which is what Round Up was designed to be used on. Years ago, a lawsuit forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

“As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe.” – Jane Goodall

In addition, Monsanto colluded with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stifle cancer research and any connections to their products. The European Union actually just approved the use of glyphosate, and their approval was found to be based on plagiarized science from Monsanto.

Dr. William Thompson is a longtime CDC scientist who has published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies, some of which claim that there is absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism. He pointed to a specific study that he co-authored in 2004 for the CDC, which claimed that “the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine does not cause autism or any particular subtypes of autism spectrum disorder.” This study is often cited when trying to justify the use of this vaccine, despite the fact that he later stated they deleted important findings from that study. He said that “it’s the lowest point in my career that I went along with that paper and uh, I went along with this, we didn’t report significant findings… I’m completely ashamed of what I did, I have great shame now that I was complicit and went along with this. I have been a part of the problem.” (source)

Google paid more in European fines than in taxes, according to the firm's fourth-quarter earnings.

Parent company Alphabet reported Q4 revenues of 39.28 billion, up 22%, while revenues for the year were up 23% to $136.8 billion. Taxes in Q4 were $4.2 billion.

Thanks to a record €4.3 billion ($5 billion) fine against the tech giant for anti-competitive practices related to Google's Android operating system, placing their fines for the year higher than their income taxes of $4.2 billion, according to Computing.

The company also took the time to separate out "European Commission fines" in its consolidated statements of income in the company's accounts. These increased from $2.7bn in 2017 to $5.1bn in 2018, with a further €50m already set to be added to the bill for its first quarter and 2019 accounts, thanks to French data protection authority CNIL.

That compares to a provision for income taxes of just $4.2 billion for 2018, or 12 per cent of its pre-tax income. -Computing

Net income in 2018 rose by 143% from $12.67 billion to $30.74 billion thanks to the US Tax Act of 2017, which depressed net income that year, which had "resulted in additional tax expense of $9.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, primarily due to the one-time transition tax on accumulated foreign subsidiary earnings and deferred tax effects," according to the earnings release.

Google's losses on "other bets," defined as "non-Google activities" spiked last year, rising from $2.7 billion to $3.36 billion. Alphabet's non-google business accounted for just $595 million of the company's $136.8 billion in annual revenues.

Alphabet warned that changes in data privacy practices, new digital advertising policies and software bugs which harvest user information could harm its business going forward, according to Bloomberg.

"Changes to our data privacy practices, as well as changes to third-party advertising policies or practices may affect the type of ads and/or manner of advertising that we are able to provide which could have an adverse effect on our business,” the company wrote in the filing. “If we do not provide superior value or deliver advertisements efficiently and competitively, our reputation could be affected, we could see a decrease in revenue from advertisers and/or experience other adverse effects to our business."

Corrupt Chinese Officials Turning OFF Crime-Fighting AI Because It Began Exposing THEM Reader 02/07/2019 (Thu) 13:16:29 Id: 3e3cb5 [Preview] No. 13915 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China appears to be shying away from an incredibly efficient AI-powered crimefighting system - perhaps because since 2012 it's busted over 8,700 government employees engaging in misconduct ranging from embezzlement, to abuse of power, to nepotism and more.

The system, dubbed "Zero Trust" was developed in partnership between the Chinese Communist Party's internal monitoring institutions and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in order to "monitor, evaluate or intervene in the work and personal life of public servants," according to SCMP's Stephen Chen.

According to state media, there were more than 50 million people on China’s government payroll in 2016, though analysts have put the figure at more than 64 million – slightly less than the population of Britain.

To turn this behemoth into a seamless operation befitting the information age, China has started adapting various types of sophisticated technology. The foreign ministry, for instance, is using machine learning to aid in risk assessment and decision making for China’s major investment projects overseas.

Beijing has been at the forefront of facial recognition technology, such as their "SkyNet" system deployed in over 16 provinces, cities and autonomous regions which can instantly scan faces and compare them to a database of criminal suspects at a speed of 3 billion times per second, according to People's Daily. In Guizhou, the movement of every police officer is tracked in real time.

Meanwhile, China has gone to great lengths to ensure the fidelity of its government data - inking contracts with companies like ZTE to develop blockchain technology in order to prevent bad actors from modifying information.

In order to tie China's monitoring apparatus together, "Zero Trust" can cross-reference over 150 protected databases across Chinese central and local governments - allowing the system to create sophisticated, multi-layered social relationship maps which can then be run through machine-learning systems in order to map out behaviors of government employees.

"It can even call up satellite images, for instance, to investigate whether the government funding to build a road in a village ended up in the pocket of an official," for example.

Beijing has experimented with Zero Trust in 30 counties and cities - just one percent of China's total administrative area - and mostly in backwater counties that are relatively poor.

PG&E Gas Line Explosion Engulfs San Francisco Buildings In Flames Reader 02/07/2019 (Thu) 13:15:44 Id: ec9bed [Preview] No. 13914 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/endpol/1126

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse for bankrupt California utility PG&E, it got worse.

On Wednesday afternoon, PG&E - which filed for bankruptcy last week as a result of $30 billion in legal liabilities resulting from California's massive 2017 and 2018 wildfires its equipment may have ignited - was working to contain a natural gas leak from a pipeline that exploded on Wednesday along a major thoroughfare in San Francisco, setting fire to five buildings and leaving thousands without power in Inner Richmond, while prompting people in nearby restaurants to run for their lives as fire crews worked to get a handle on the soaring flames.

The fire erupted just before 1:30 p.m. in front of Hong Kong Lounge II by the intersection of Geary Boulevard and Parker Avenue, officials said according to the SF Chronicle.

The fire triggered an evacuation order for people within a block of the site on Geary Boulevard, a major artery that leads into downtown San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Fire Department. According to Bloomberg, which quoted San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White, eight workers near the explosion have been accounted for and no injuries were reported.

Eight construction workers, hired by an unidentified third-party contractor, were digging in the ground to install fiber optic cables when they hit a gas main, Hayes-White said.

PG&E’s stock plunged as much as 6.3 percent following this latest accident which threatens to pile up even more legal bills on the insolvent utility, which in addition to wildfire costs, is still dealing with the consequences of the San Bruno gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people and leveled 38 homes.

"I’m confident that it’ll be contained soon,” Hayes-White told reporters at the scene. “As soon as the gas leak is tamped down, we’ll have it under control." The alternative, of course, being that a section of San Francisco burns down is probably too dire for PG&E's management to even consider.

Hayes-White described the explosion and ensuing fire as extensive but noted that it’s “not as extensive” as the San Bruno blast.

Nanny Police State Hawaii Pushes Total Smoking Ban, Would Prohibit Tobacco Reader 02/07/2019 (Thu) 13:13:32 Id: 5847a2 [Preview] No. 13913 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Stock up on tobacco and humidors!

The state government in Hawaii wants to increase the smoking age to 100. Although pretty much everyone on Earth knows smoking is damaging to a person’s overall health, the nanny state is taking it upon themselves to ban the use of more substances.

Nothing good can ever come from the government dictating to people what they are allowed to put in their bodies, and that includes smoking. Are we free or not? Do we own ourselves or not? Governments assume they own us as tax cattle and therefore it’s their right to tell us how to live our lives. Unfortunately, too many bow down to the whims of the state while others enforce these nanny state policies.

If this bill succeeds in becoming a law, it would effectively ban the use of cigarettes for a very vast majority of the Hawaiian population. The bill was proposed by Democrat Richard Creagan, an obvious authoritarian.

Even if it does become a law, laws hinge only on the population’s willingness to abide by them, so it could be futile much like prohibition was. Not to mention worldwide smoking rates are plummeting to people voluntarily making the decision that it isn’t good for them.

The new bill, HB 1509, demands that the smoking age go up to 30 in 2020, 40 in 2021, 50 in 2022, and 60 in 2023. The last jump will take place in 2024 when people would need to be 100 years old to buy cigarettes.

“We don’t allow people free access to opioids, for instance, or any prescription drugs,” Creagan said in defense of his tyrannical bill.

And even though the government has banned opioids without a prescription, there’s an opioid addiction crisis lowering the life expectancy of Americans. Prepare for a cigarette black market in Hawaii should Creagan get his way.

All nanny state policies including taxation beg the question: who owns you?

Outrageous Holocaust Sermonizing From Puppet President in Lamest State of the Union Ever Reader Board owner 02/07/2019 (Thu) 02:36:36 Id: 80b365 [Preview] No. 13910 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
"Jared Kushner's puppet, Donald Trump, has achieved new heights of Holocaust fervor and reality denial. He devoted a good portion of his State of the Union to eulogizing "history's greatest crime," "Tonight, we are also joined by Pittsburgh survivor Judah Samet....[stated Trump] More than seven decades ago, he narrowly survived the Nazi concentration camps. Today is Judah’s 81st birthday. Judah says he can still remember the exact moment, nearly 75 years ago, after 10 months in a concentration camp, when he and his family were put on a train, and told they were going to another camp."

"So, we are supposed to believe that in the maelstrom of spring, 1945, the genocidal Germans kept 7-year-old Judah alive for 10 months at Bergen-Belsen, despite crippling shortages of food, fuel, ammunition and personnel. German civilians were being annihilated in their tens of thousands in vicious firebombing, thousands of German women were being raped by Soviet (and British and American) troops. Yet the ["]evil["] Germans allocated an entire train to evacuate little Judah and his parents in March or April of 1945. Chilling."

"Like so much of the substantially false mainstream Holocaust narrative, the story strikes one as utterly incredible. According to Trump's retelling: Suddenly the train screeched to a halt. A soldier appeared. Judah’s family braced for the worst. Then, his father cried out with joy: “It’s the Americans.” According to Judah, his liberation occurred at Berlin at the hands of an American tank crew. Given that the SS handed over Bergen-Belsen to the British on April 15th, the train must have been dispatched eastward at some point before then. This is all technically possible, but highly unusual if one assumes that the Germans were bent on genocide. It's also unusual given the constraints of time and space."

"Forget about shooting Judah in April '45... Why was this unfit-for-labor child transferred from Debrecen, Hungary in June/July '44 toward Auschwitz, only to be rerouted to a lumberyard in Austria, then on to Bergen-Belsen, where he was lived for 10 months if the end goal was to kill him? Why did his parents survive to be liberated if all Jews were slated for extermination? The rest of Trump's speech wasn't much better. Just a litany of empty phrases. His tone was totally inappropriate to the scale of our civilizational crisis. After four years of Europe being overrun by black and brown savages, with incessant media promotion of homosexual, transsexual and other propaganda, the WWII homilies are getting harder and harder to take."

"Who cares about this emotionally manipulative drivel. Look around you. Your sons are unemployed, your daughters are unmarried, your parents are divorced, often ill and without hope of grandchildren or a meaningful legacy. Something is wrong." -Gregory Conte of Russia Insider reports.

Bill Clinton’s Faith Healer Arrested for Running Biggest Ever Child Sex Ring Reader 02/02/2019 (Sat) 16:24:37 Id: f791b7 [Preview] No. 13861 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Police have arrested Bill Clinton’s faith healer for running Brazil’s largest ever child sex ring.

Joao Teixeira de Faria – known as John of God – achieved international fame after being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and having a list of famous clients, including Bill Clinton.

Two months ago, his world crumbled after police discovered evidence that he was a mass murderer, baby trafficker, and sex slave ringleader.

Mirror.co.uk reports: https://archive.fo/p7XGV

The 77-year-old was arrested a week later in what prosecutors say could be the worst serial crimes case in the country’s history.

Faria’s own daughter, Dalva Teixeira, has also spoken out, called him a “monster” and claiming he molested her as a child.

The case has shocked Brazilians, many of whom regarded the so-called ‘psychic surgeon’ – famous for performing procedures such as removing tumours or cataracts with his hands and without anaesthesia – as a modern-day miracle worker.

And last week even more explosive acccusations have been thrown at John of God.

Brazilian activist Sabrina Bittencourt, whose investigations led to Teixeira’s arrest in December, now claims the celebrity medium ran a baby trafficking operation where children were “farmed” in Brazil before being sold to childless couples around the world.

Obama Funding for Subversive Propaganda Just Ended, Leading to Mass MSM Layoffs Reader 02/03/2019 (Sun) 20:08:28 Id: fab470 [Preview] No. 13881 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Obama funding of anti-Trump propaganda has just ended, causing MSM to layoff hundreds of journalists.

Barack Obama quietly signed the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” in 2016, designed to counter Trump’s influence with Americans and spread anti-Trump propaganda to the masses.

The Act allocated a whopping $160 MILLION taxpayer dollars to pay for Deep State-sponsored propaganda, spread by journalists at various far-left outlets.

The “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” not only allows the U.S. government to ban outlets deemed to be “Russian propaganda,” but gives them the ability to legally spread disinformation online via social networks and mainstream media outlets.

Dcwhispers.com reports: https://archive.fo/7zNhy

The money is now gone and guess what?

About 1000 journalists are suddenly being laid off.

Coincidence? Hah! This was classic Obama, reaching into the bottomless trough of taxpayer dollars to push his self-promoting agenda.
