Moscow's Mad Scientists Have Figured Out How To Warp Time Reader 03/14/2019 (Thu) 02:23:50 Id: 8a7f82 [Preview] No. 14188 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Moscow's Mad Scientists Have Figured Out How To Warp Time As Putin Seeks To Dominate Space-Time Continuum

Lead researcher Dr Gordey Lesovik, of Moscow’s Laboratory of the Physics of Quantum Information at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, said: “We have artificially created a state that evolves in a direction opposite to that of the thermodynamic arrow of time.”

His team used a rudimentary quantum computer, which carries information on subatomic particles. He hopes their findings, in journal Scientific Reports, will help improve processing power.

So how does it work? Well the time machine is actually a rudimentary quantum computer made up of electron qubits.

A qubit is a the basic unit of quantum information – a unit that represents one, zero, and both one and zero at the same time.

Researchers ran an "evolution program", which caused the qubits to enter a complicated changing pattern of ones and zeroes.

And during this process, the order was lost – like hitting balls at the start of a game of pool.

A separate program then modified the state of this quantum computer so that it evolved backwards, returning from chaos to order.

This allowed the qubits to return to their original starting point.

Sad! Millennials Owe More Than A Trillion In Debt And Most Don't Even Own A Home Reader 03/13/2019 (Wed) 17:07:47 Id: 6a93fa [Preview] No. 14185 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
HOW TO GET A DECENT PAYING JOB AND SAVE MONEY: https://archive.fo/4vGvc

When compared to a similar point in time, Millennials are deeper in debt than any other generation that has come before them. And the biggest reason why they are in so much debt may surprise you.

We’ll get to that in a minute, but first let’s talk about the giant mountain of debt that Millennials have accumulated. According to the New York Fed, the total amount of debt that Millennials are carrying has risen by a whopping 22 percent in just the last five years…

New findings from the New York Federal Reserve reveal that millennials have now racked up over US$1 trillion of debt.

This troubling amount of debt, an increase of over 22% in just five years, is more than any other generation in history. This situation may leave you wondering how millennials ended up in such a sorry state.

Many young adults are absolutely drowning in debt, but the composition of that debt is quite different when compared to previous generations at a similar point in time.

Mortgage debt and credit card debt levels are far lower for Millennials, but the level of student loan debt is far, far higher…

While the debt levels accumulated by millennials eclipse those of the previous generation, Generation X, at a similar point in time, the complexion of the debt is very different.

According to a 2018 report from the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, mortgage debt is about 15% lower for millennials and credit card debt among millennials was about two-thirds that of Gen X.

George Bush Sr Groomed & Played With Little Boys Says His Deputy Assistant Secretary Reader 03/13/2019 (Wed) 17:06:37 Id: 64562d [Preview] No. 14184 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Dr. Steve Pieczenik, a former Department of State official, has implicated George Bush Sr as a sexual abuser of young boys.

Pieczenik held many roles within US politics, including serving as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, and George H.W. Bush. He also worked for numerous agencies, including the CIA.

Collective Evolution reports:
https://www.collective-evolution.com/2019/03/08/deputy-assistant-secretary-to-george-h-w-bush-says-he-bush-groomed-played-with-little-boys/

In one of Steve’s latest videos, he implicates one of his former employers, George H.W. Bush, who he served in the capacity of Deputy Assistant Secretary.

When talking about the subject, he states,

“It has been rampant in our government, if you remember Bush Sr. had a whole group of young Hispanic men who he groomed and played with. At the same time, Hillary and Bill Clinton along with their friend Mr. Epstein went down to the Bahamas and they were molesting and utilizing young girls and boys to have sexual pleasures, but nothing was done about the fact that Jeffrey Epstein had been guilty and convicted of that crime.”

The latest news regarding Epstein is that federal judge Kenneth A. Marra declared that a 2008 plea deal made by federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta in the sexual assault case of Jeffery Epstein was against the law.

President Trump to Designate Mexican Cartels as Terrorist Organizations Reader 03/13/2019 (Wed) 17:04:22 Id: 3835db [Preview] No. 14182 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1132

President Donald Trump has announced plans to designate violent Mexican drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).

Speaking with Breitbart’s Deputy Political Editor Amanda House, Trump confirmed his administration is “very seriously” considering designating factions of cartels, or cartels as a whole, as terrorist groups.

Breitbart.com reports:
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/12/exclusive-president-donald-trump-were-thinking-very-seriously-about-designating-mexican-cartels-as-foreign-terrorist-organizations/

“We are. We are,” Trump said. “We’re thinking about doing it very seriously. In fact, we’ve been thinking about it for a long time.”

“It’s psychological, but it’s also economic,” Trump continued. “As terrorists — as terrorist organizations, the answer is yes. They are.”

The president went on to discuss the violence taking place in Mexico.

“Mexico, unfortunately, has lost control of the cartels,” Trump said. “They’ve totally lost control of the cartels. Mexico last year had 42,000 deaths — murders — 42,000. It’s considered one of the most unsafe countries in the world.”

He should designate the suppliers of the drug cartels as terrorists too but he likely won't because they are too well connected to the banking cabal.



NYC Dangerously Close To Bankruptcy Reader 03/10/2019 (Sun) 22:09:46 Id: a68014 [Preview] No. 14167 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Here is an inconvenient truth for the Democratic socialists that control New York City: Gotham is "careening closer to all-out financial bankruptcy," according to New York Post.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to add billions of dollars more to the budget, amid a slowing economy and outward migration caused by tax reform, a recession would send the city into a "fiscal disaster," according to the report.

"New York City could go bankrupt, absolutely," American Institute for Economic Research economist Peter C. Earle told the Post. "In that case, the city would get temporary protection from its creditors, but it would be very difficult for the city to take on new debt."

Financial analysts warn tax burdened businesses and individuals would flee in droves, and public spending would have to surge to record levels, which would set off a fiscal nuclear bomb.

Long-term debt is about $81,100 per household, and Mayor de Blasio will spend as much as $3 billion more in the new budget for a total of $89.2 billion.

Analysts said Mayor de Blasio had detailed $750 million in savings for the preliminary fiscal 2020 budget, but that amount won't be enough to create a soft bottom during the next recession. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s preliminary budget has $600 million in cuts for the city in 2020.

Spending is up 32% since Mayor de Blasio took office, the analysts told the Post that more spending cuts would be needed to get the fiscal house in order to avert bankruptcy during the next recession.

NYC's long-term pension obligations have also expanded to levels that may not be manageable.

New York state is ranked No. 1 in the nation for the highest taxes, and the top 1% of NYC earners pay some 50% of income tax revenue, per the Post. If businesses and people continue to flee to lower tax states while spending continues to rise, it could lead to financial hardships for the city, analysts warn.

They keep the arbitrary value of fiat money by raising the debt ceiling. It will all come tumbling down eventually.



Jews Caught in Massive University Cheating Scam Reader 03/13/2019 (Wed) 03:41:47 Id: c083a9 [Preview] No. 14179 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Of course, it doesn't say "Jews" but read the criminal compliant. The excuse for why you have to take the test in LA/Houston, where the Jew had the proctor paid off? You "have a bar mitvah" that weekend. Schools included Yale, USC, UCLA, etc..

Full House star Lori Loughlin and Oscar nominee Felicity Huffman are two of the 50 parents charged in a plot to get their children into schools including Georgetown, Stanford, UCLA, University of San Diego, USC, University of Texas, Wake Forest, and Yale.

The scheme was uncovered by the FBI and federal prosecutors in Boston, and involved parents paying bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into these elite schools.

In many instances, the children were unaware that their parents had paid these bribes according to federal documents.

Huffman has two daughters with husband William H. Macy including Sofia, who is 18, and 16-year old Georgia.

Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli also have two daughters: Olivia, 19, and Isabella, 20.

Ex-Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge was also named among those charged in the scheme. Hercules Capital also fell in intraday trading when it was revealed that its CEO and largest holder Manuel Henriquez was named in the DOJ affidavit.

It was also disclosed that Willkie Farr & Gallagher Co-Chairman Gordon R. Caplan has been charged. Caplan, described in the complaint as “an attorney and the co-chairman of an international law firm based in New York”, is reportedly said to have donated $75,000 to the brokering entity in question in order to have SAT test administrators correct his daughter's answers after she finished it.

Prosecutors are alleging that the individuals charged tried to bribe college entrance exam officials in order to cheat on admissions tests and that some conspired to bribe coaches and administrators to label their children as "recruited athletes". Athletes can sometimes get preferential treatment.

Brankrupt US Gets Its Ass Kicked In WW3 Simulation Reader 03/12/2019 (Tue) 23:12:01 Id: 536242 [Preview] No. 14178 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: >>>/prepare/1 | https://archive.fo/IoKi1

In simulated World War III scenarios, the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China, two top war planners warned last week. “In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it" RAND analyst David Ochmanek said Thursday.

RAND's wargames show how US Armed Forces - colored blue on wargame maps - experience the most substantial losses in one scenario after another and still can't thwart Russia or China - which predictably is red - from accomplishing their objectives: annihilating Western forces.

"We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary," he warned.

In the next military conflict, which some believe may come as soon as the mid-2020s, all five battlefield domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace, will be heavily contested, suggesting the U.S. could have a difficult time in achieving superiority as it has in prior conflicts.

The simulated war games showed, the "red" aggressor force often destroys U.S. F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters on the runway, sends several Naval fleets to the depths, destroys US military bases, and through electronic warfare, takes control of critical military communication systems. In short, a gruesome, if simulated, annihilation of some of the most modern of US forces.

“In every case I know of,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense with years of wargaming experience, “the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”

So, as Russia and China develop fifth-generation fighters and hypersonic missiles, “things that rely on sophisticated base infrastructures like runways and fuel tanks are going to have a hard time,” Ochmanek said. “Things that sail on the surface of the sea are going to have a hard time.”

Meanwhile, speaking purely hypothetically of course, "if we went to war in Europe, there would be one Patriot battery moving, and it would go to Ramstein. And that’s it,” Work complained. The US has 58 Brigade Combat Teams across the continent but doesn't have anti-air and missile-defense capabilities required to handle a barrage of missiles from Russia.

Alternatives To Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, And Other State-run Tech Platforms Reader 03/12/2019 (Tue) 23:10:28 Id: 6e4310 [Preview] No. 14175 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Lately, I’ve written a lot about the alternative media purge and how Big Tech social media platforms are attempting to control the narrative, the elections, and public perception through censorship and financial blacklisting. Lots of people are ready to leave websites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for less-censored pastures. But what are the social media alternatives that are currently available?

Before we get into the alternatives, please understand that all of them will start small. None of them will be able to take on Big Tech without a lot of help and support. We’ve gotten used to free social media because the companies with whom we’ve dealt have virtually raped us, reading our so-called “private” messages, and pillaging our date to sell to the highest bidders. So really, it isn’t that free after all.

You probably won’t find your parents, your best friend from kindergarten, and your Aunt Suzie on these platforms – not yet, anyway. But what you WILL be able to do is speak without fear of censorship. You’ll be able to find your favorite alternative media sources there and find answers that simply aren’t supported by the mainstream.

The only way to change this dystopian atmosphere is to actually make changes ourselves. Go where the freedom is!

MeWe

MeWe calls themselves The Next-Gen Social Network. They raised $4.8 million and launched back in 2016 to take on Facebook and Twitter. They’re about 6 million members strong so far and Mark Weinstein, the founder, plans for it to be 500 million by 2022.

“In the future, MeWe will also revolutionize social media with decentralization, which will render Facebook’s spying and tracking data model completely obsolete,” Weinstein added, a comment that suggests he is indeed trying to replace Facebook. “Awareness around the world has never been higher regarding news feed manipulation and privacy infractions. Government regulations will never truly interfere with Facebook’s data collection model, evidenced in both California’s new 2020 privacy rules and Europe’s GDPR. But the free market can — and MeWe is here giving people great communication technology in a true multi-feature platform, with none of Facebook’s BS.”

Real.Video (Brighteon)

Real.Video was started by Mike Adams of Natural News in response to mass deplatforming on YouTube.

This is the YouTube alternative to give voices and free speech to those who are being systematically targeted and censored by YouTube, Facebook, Google, and Twitter for essentially being a pro-Liberty person, standing up for America, standing up for the Bill of Rights or just basic human rights for that matter.

Adams would know about censorship firsthand, since last year, Google delisted his site, Natural News, from its search engine results.

Mastodon

Another budding network is Mastodon, which has the tagline “Giving social media back to you.” It’s a free, open-source network, which means that developers can contribute to it because its design is publicly accessible.

Ultimately Mastodon is a decentralized alternative to all the commercial social network platforms, which means that no single company owns it or can monopolize your communication. (source)

I found it confusing to use (maybe you need to be more techy?) and was put off by the fact that I needed to log in via Twitter. Perhaps this is just so you can connect with the same people. It’s always worthwhile to look at your options. Mastodon was started by Eugen Rochko, who was fed up with the changes that Twitter was making that closely resembled the Facebook algorithms.

Diaspora

Diaspora is a social network built on three cornerstones: decentralization, freedom, and privacy. To join Diaspora, you have to choose a “pod” which is a group of potentially like-minded people. Each pod is independently hosted which should lessen the likelihood of corporate censorship.

You can follow hashtags that interest you, and you can categorize people by how you know them (family, friends, work, etc.) Then you can control who sees the different things that you post.

Diaspora is decentralized which means no one person owns it. This means that it doesn’t have any form of advertisement and corporate interference. It also does not collect any of your data. When you create your account, you are responsible for your own data and retain the ownership of your personal data.

Unlike Facebook, Diaspora allows you to use whatever identity you want, so pseudonyms and nicknames are fine to display as your profile.

50 Actual College Courses Prove That America’s Universities Are Communist Indoctination Camps Reader 03/12/2019 (Tue) 23:09:21 Id: fd6533 [Preview] No. 14173 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
What in the world are they teaching to our young people? As you go through the list of college course titles below, I am sure that many of you will be completely shocked. Most parents assume that they are sending their children to college to get prepared for their future careers, but the truth is that a lot of our major colleges and universities have become little more than indoctrination centers for communist despotism.

Young America’s Foundation has just released their yearly report on the craziest college courses in America, and I pulled some examples out of that report that demonstrate how bad things have gotten.

The following are 50 actual college course titles that prove that America’s universities are literally training our college students to be socialists/communists:

Millions of Chinese Banned from Travel Under New Social Credit System Reader 03/11/2019 (Mon) 17:21:37 Id: 52a626 [Preview] No. 14171 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Millions of Chinese citizens are now banned from buying flights and train tickets under the new social credit system, according to a document obtained from the National Public Credit Information Center.

The document details how 17.5 million flight tickets and 5.5 million train tickets were blocked in 2018 because the citizens attempting to purchase them were on the government’s blacklist for social credit offences.

Zerohedge.com reports:
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-04/chinas-social-credit-system-blocked-tens-millions-plane-and-train-tickets

The Communist Party of China (CPC) says the social credit system is an essential component of the Socialist market economic system and the social governance system. Its aim is to encourage trustworthy behavior through a blend of penalties and rewards for citizens to improve a fast-changing society after three decades of economic reform. Offenses can include failure to pay taxes or fines, jaywalking, smoking, shoplifting, or taking drugs. Penalties include restrictions on travel, business, obtaining loans, or access to education. Companies can lose access to low-interest bank loans or be dropped from government contracts.

One government slogan for the scheme says: “Once you lose trust, you will face restrictions everywhere.”

The social control system is part of efforts by President Xi Jinping’s Communist regime to use artificial intelligence and surveillance cameras to control more than a billion people.

CPC launched social credit in 2014 and is currently piloting it in multiple cities around China. The system is expected to roll out nationwide by 2020, giving the government control to almost all people and businesses.

Human rights activists warn that social credit is too hard on citizens and might unfairly label people as untrustworthy without telling them.
