You as an American citizen should not be trusted.
Anyone around you could be a terrorist. You could be a terrorist.
Everything we do needs to be monitored for terrorist activities.

Third World USSA: Commiefornia LA Infested With Rats, Disease, Poverty, Crime Reader 06/04/2019 (Tue) 14:07:41 Id: a9ec0f [Preview] No. 14829 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The good news is that two trash-strewn downtown Los Angeles streets I wrote about last week were cleaned up by city work crews and have been kept that way, as of this writing.

The bad news is that I didn’t have to travel far to find more streets just as badly fouled by filthy mounds of junk and stinking, rotting food.

Then there was the news that the LAPD station on skid row was cited by the state for a rodent infestation and other unsanitary conditions, and that one employee there was infected with the strain of bacteria that causes typhoid fever.

What century is this?

Is it the 21st century in the largest city of a state that ranks among the world’s most robust economies, or did someone turn back the calendar a few hundred years?

We’ve got thousands of people huddled on the streets, many of them withering away with physical and mental disease. Sidewalks have disappeared, hidden by tents and the kinds of makeshift shanties you see in Third World places. Typhoid and typhus are in the news, and an army of rodents is on the move. Is this progressive?

On Thursday I saw a county health inspector on rat patrol between 7th and 8th streets on skid row. He was carrying a clipboard and said he had found droppings and other evidence of rodents, and I asked where:

“Everywhere,” he said.

Well, it’s nice to know somebody is doing something, but you don’t need a clipboard. I’ve seen so many rats the last two weeks in downtown Los Angeles, I have to suspect they’re plotting a takeover of City Hall, which vermin infiltrated last year.

Facebook Is Now Working With State-run Press To Dox Activist Users Reader 06/03/2019 (Mon) 15:24:38 Id: d9d2fd [Preview] No. 14822 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The Daily Beast recently doxed a black forklift driver and reported Trump supporter for the alleged high crime of creating a parody video of Democrat speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi. But there’s more to the story — it appears Facebook may have helped the left-wing journalists identify him.

The Daily Beast identified the video creator as Shawn Brooks, whom they described as a forklift driver and Trump supporter from the Bronx.

A Twitter account claiming to be Brooks disputed key details of the story, claiming he is not a Trump supporter, did not create the parody video, and does not live in the Bronx.

By doxing Brooks, The Daily Beast followed the example of CNN, which threatened to unmask an anonymous Trump supporter over a parody video, forcing to him apologize in exchange for not revealing his identity. The scandal caused “CNNBlackmail” to trend on Twitter.

But there’s another aspect to the Daily Beast story which has major implications for the privacy of Facebook users — according to the Daily Beast reporter himself, Facebook gave him information on Brooks’ activity on the platform.

Via the Daily Beast:

It’s conceivable that someone else actually edited the clip. But a Facebook official, confirming a Daily Beast investigation, said the video was first posted on Politics WatchDog directly from Brooks’ personal Facebook account.

If the Daily Beast’s description of Facebook’s actions is accurate, Facebook compromised the privacy of one of its users, handing over information on his activity to a journalist who was clearly engaged in a politically motivated hatchet-job.

The Kassel government president Walter Lübcke (* 22. August 1953 in Bad Wildungen; † 1. Juni 2019 in Wolfhagen ) is dead. According to media reports, he was killed by a head shot. The state criminal investigation determined.

Still much is unclear about the death of the Kassel district president Walter Lübcke (CDU). The Hesse State Office of Criminal Investigation (LKA) announced on Sunday in Wiesbaden that it had taken investigations. About the direction of this investigation, neither the competent prosecutor Kassel nor the LKA wanted to give information.


FLASHBACK: This was the asshole:

"We refugees... do not want to live in the same country with you. You can, and I think you should, leave Germany. And please take Saxony and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) with you.

Otherwise you can simply flee from Germany and look for a new home. Go to America to Donald Trump, he will love you very much. We are sick of you!"

Massive Internet 'Glitch' Proves All IoT 'Smart' Appliances Vulnerable Disabling Digital Locks, AC Reader 06/03/2019 (Mon) 16:33:42 Id: c2feab [Preview] No. 14824 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
If you’re a Google user, you probably noticed some trouble last night when trying to access Google-owned services. Last night, Google reported several issues with its Cloud Platform, which made several Google sites slow or inoperable. Because of this, many of Google’s sites and services–including Gmail, G Suite, and YouTube–were slow or completely down for users in the U.S. and Europe.

However, the Google Cloud outage also affected third-party apps and services that use Google Cloud space for hosting. Affected third-party apps and services include Discord, Snapchat, and even Apple’s iCloud services.

But an especially annoying side effect of Google Cloud’s downtime was that Nest-branded smart home products for some users just failed to work. According to reports from Twitter, many people were unable to use their Nest thermostats, Nest smart locks, and Nest cameras during the downtime. This essentially meant that because of a cloud storage outage, people were prevented from getting inside their homes, using their AC, and monitoring their babies.

So we finally get AC, right? Great.

Google is down. We have a Nest thermostat. Nest runs on Google. Can’t turn on AC because app is down.

— Danny (@jDantastic) June 2, 2019

@googlenest It’s very inconvenient when the system is down. Especially if you use Nest Cameras for baby monitors. Is the outage expected to end soon? Sometimes I wish I just got simple baby monitors instead of paying a premium price and a monthly fee for an inconsistent service.

Google cloud is down so people can't turn on their AC or get open their "smart" locks to let people into the house etc. https://t.co/oqKdBcNGC0 https://t.co/z2kkWf9oN4

NSA fed Israel intel for targeted assassinations, leaked docs show Reader 06/02/2019 (Sun) 23:56:36 Id: 13922a [Preview] No. 14819 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Frustrated by a legal ban on sharing intelligence with Israeli operatives conducting targeted assassinations against Hezbollah, the NSA crafted a loophole giving them total access even to US citizens' data, leaked documents show. The Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU), the NSA's counterpart in Tel Aviv, convinced the Americans to circumvent the legal prohibition on providing surveillance data for targeted assassinations during Israel's 2006 war with Lebanon, according to the newest revelation from the archives obtained by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Using the familiar rationale of "terrorism" to excuse cooperation they knew was illegal, the NSA and ISNU found a workaround using the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that provided the Israelis with all the intel they needed, according to an October 2006 article in the NSA's internal publication. "To ISNU, this prohibition (on sharing data for targeted killings) was contrary not only to supporting Israel in its fight against Hezbollah but overall, to support the US Global War on Terrorism," said an article in SIDToday.

The documents don't include details of what "arrangement" was eventually worked out with the ODNI, but the Israeli military used American data to lay waste to Lebanon's civilian population, much like the tech-enhanced US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, whose kill-counts swelled with civilian victims after they received access to NSA targeting data. "Israel repeatedly, and in some cases egregiously, violated the laws of war," Human Rights Watch reporter Nadim Houry told the Intercept, adding that the Israelis "engaged in indiscriminate aerial attacks" and cluster bombing against "civilian infrastructure that was not tied in any way to the armed conflict." This strategy had a name – the "Dahiyeh doctrine" – and Israeli officials admitted it was deliberate, but despite this brutality, they were unable to win the war. A leaked presentation about the NSA-ISNU relationship notes that "public confidence in IDF erodes" and "IDF image damaged" after the seemingly-outmatched Hezbollah fighters were able to keep the Israelis at bay. Nevertheless, the IDF was, according to the presentation, "Gearing up for Round II''."

Apparently unsatisfied with the legal loophole the Americans had created for them, the Israelis sought and received full access to the NSA's massive surveillance data troves after the war. A 2009 memorandum of understanding officially gave ISNU unrestricted access to the NSA's raw intelligence data – including the phone and internet records of American citizens and citizens of third-party countries. Only American officials' data was excluded, on an honor-system basis (with ISNU instructed to "destroy upon recognition" any records originating with a government official). Almost no strings were attached to this bonanza – the Israelis could even release the identities of Americans whose information had been scooped up in the dragnet, as long as they asked the NSA for permission first, and could pass the data on to anyone at all if the names were redacted.

While a leaked presentation calls ISNU "NSA's most valued third party partner," it also suggests there was "high anxiety" among the Israelis "heavily reliant" on NSA data for support. One slide reads "What Did ISNU Want? Everything!!!" and complaints about the Israelis' "robust" spying on Americans crop up frequently in the Snowden archives. The NSA did not seem to mind, because the Israelis were very, very grateful for all the information. "Throughout all of my discussions – no matter what the tone or subject – ISNU stressed their deep gratitude for the cooperation and support they received from the NSA," the SIDToday article reads.

Hundreds Of Respected Scientists Sound The Alarm About Health Effects As 5G Networks Go Up Nationwide Reader 05/21/2019 (Tue) 00:44:48 Id: 900a5c [Preview] No. 14741 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
5G MASS MURDER RELATED: >>>/endpol/1134

Even though many in the scientific community are loudly warning about the potential health effects that 5G technology could have on the general population, Verizon and AT&T are starting to put up their 5G networks in major cities all across the nation. Today, the total number of cell phones exceeds the entire population of the world, and the big cell phone companies are making a crazy amount of money providing service to all of those phones.

President Trump claimed that 5G networks will be up to 100 times faster than the current 4G networks that we are using right now…

But in order to achieve such vastly 'superior' performance, 5G networks will use technology that is completely different from 4G networks.

5G waves are “ultra high frequency” and “ultra high intensity”, but they are also easily absorbed by objects such as buildings and trees. So although cell towers will be much, much smaller, but they will also have to be much, much closer together than before. According to CBS News, it is estimated that the big cell phone companies will be putting up at least 300,000 of these small towers, and it has been projected that it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to fully set up the 5G network nationwide.

Needless to say, there is a tremendous amount of money at stake, and the big cell phone companies are trying very hard to assure everyone that 5G technology is completely safe.

Today, there is a growing body of scientific evidence that indicates that the electromagnetic radiation that we are constantly being bombarded with is not good for us. Hundreds of scientists that are engaged in research in this area have signed the “International EMF Scientist Appeal”, and this is how that document begins…

"We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include–but are not limited to–radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF)."

In the next paragraph, we are told that “cancer risk”, “genetic damages”, “functional changes of the reproductive system”, and “neurological disorders” are some of the health risks that have been discovered by the scientific research that has been conducted so far…

Listen up you ignorant fucking waste of space: Anything you read that either doesn't get the difference between IONIZING radiation and NON-IONIZING radiation or that deliberately tries to conflate the two can, and should, be laughed at or ignored.

An atom has some number of protons and some number of electrons which are usually in balance. When they are not in balance, the atom is a charged ion. If it has an extra electron, then it is an ion with a negative charge. If it is missing an electron (because, for example, it got hit by a high energy ionizing radiation particle like a cosmic ray or a TSA backscatter X-ray station - but not a non-ionizing force like a 5G radio signal because that won't do it) then it is an ion with a positive charge. Ions are a bit like bar magnets. If you throw them into a box and shake them, they will spin around and the N poles will snap to S poles and vice-versa. Ions will push away from ions with like charges and they will bond with ions with unlike charges. If these ions happen to be atoms that are part of DNA molecules, then strands of DNA can get broken apart or spliced together and mutations that sometimes lead to cancer can occur. That's why ionizing radiation in large doses isn't a good thing for living creatures.

Electromagnetic radiation like 60 hz power or 5G radio signals is non-ionizing radiation. It doesn't strip electrons off atoms and it doesn't turn atoms into ions. Electromagnetic radiation does not cause genetic mutations. The scary notion that it does is COMPLETELY FUCKING FALSE and has never been demonstrated or observed in spite of massive efforts to discover conditions under which it might. Nobody has ever been able to establish a reproducible link between electromagnetic radiation exposure and cancer formation. Radio signals are not X-rays. A 5G cell phone tower is not an airport backscatter X-ray imager.

So, when rabid frantic text copy claims that being surrounded by 5G towers is like being sealed in a radiation chamber 24/7, it either doesn't know what the fuck it's talking about because it's your typical endchan news paranoid adolph fucktard or it is lying.

Thats not the point whether it is ionizing or not. Radiation is not good for health, no amount of constant radiation is. Even if you get too much sun its bad for you. The amount of damage done all depends on how strong the radiation is, and what kind. 5G is in the classification of microwave radiation, although its not as extreme, its lower microwave frequency (around 15Ghz to 30Ghz). Its not going to be like sticking your head in a microwave and having an immediate effect on your health. It is going to bombard you with lower microwave frequencies though and over time, give or take 10 to 20 years, you will see cancer skyrocketing, you will see numerous health issues and adverse psychological effects. Since the 90s the amount of brain tumor diagnosis has skyrocketed. Why? All the cell phone use on a daily basis. Whether you like it or not, 5G is going to harm people and animals over time and it has to be, and will be, called out and challenged. Just like what is happening with Monsanto right now.

Not as a result of 5G towers you won't.

There are a great many things that cause cancer and there are a great many things that have never been observed to do so - such as magnetic fields - despite a hundred years of historical data to look at.

If you are genuinely concerned about things in your environment that cause cancer, then put a little bit of effort into making as true and accurate a list as you can, ordered by actual incidence rates and threat levels, of the top five or six threats that you face. What does your list look like? Would you laugh at someone going on about the dangers of "5G radiation" while they were smoking or drinking a beer or bbqing some hot dogs or not?

A Non-profit Organization Is Now Doing Trump's Job, Building The Wall! Reader 06/02/2019 (Sun) 15:41:33 Id: 9e79ce [Preview] No. 14817 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
With Democrats, some Republicans, and Obama judges on federal courts aligned against POTUS Donald Trump’s efforts to build new walls along the U.S.-Mexico border, a private organization has stepped in to erect new barriers were it can.

We Build The Wall, a group started by triple amputee and U.S. Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, began construction of a half-mile section of new wall on private property over the Memorial Day holiday where hundreds of illegal aliens and tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of drugs were crossing into nearby El Paso, Texas, on a daily basis.

Just as the organization was getting its operation rolling, they were shut down by local city officials in neighboring New Mexico who claim that We Build The Wall did not have proper permitting and other government permissions to construct the barrier.

As The Washington Examiner reported:

A New Mexico town ordered the nonprofit We Build The Wall to “cease and desist” construction on a U.S.-Mexico border fence on Tuesday for lacking proper permitting.

“We have issued a cease and desist order to the owner of the property,” Perea said. “At this point, it will be turned over to the courts for follow-up on the matter.”

But Kolfage told reporters Wednesday that all of the permitting processes were correct, the appropriate paperwork had been filed, and everything was a go — until, suddenly, it wasn’t.

“What cartel paid off the Sunland Park City officials to lie and shut down our wall project?! THEY LIED! exactly why we kept it quiet,” Kolfage tweeted. “It’s pretty bad when our legal team has to educate Sunland Park mayor on his own city ordinances. They don’t even understand their own laws. We’re about to embarrass them in front of the nation who is watching!”

Pompeo Threatens Germany: Dump Huawei Or Intelligence Sharing Blocked Reader 06/02/2019 (Sun) 15:38:57 Id: b809db [Preview] No. 14816 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has again put Germany and the rest of Europe on notice regarding China's controversial telecom giant Huawei, warning they could be cut off from crucial US intelligence sharing over Huawei's deadly 5G kill grids now being built.

Pompeo issued the ultimatum following a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Friday, saying the decision on whether to allow Huawei equipment would have severe consequences, according to Reuters. His words came at the start of a five-day European tour: “They [Germany] will take their own sovereign decisions, [but we] will speak to them openly about the risks... and in the case of Huawei the concern is it is not possible to mitigate those anywhere inside of a 5G network,” Pompeo said.

Germany, alongside the UK and France, has refused to budge amidst the ratcheting pressure from the US over worries that China's intelligence is using its next generation networks as "back door" for aggressive telecommunications eavesdropping.

Pompeo told the news conference further: “(There is) a risk we will have to change our behavior in light of the fact that we can’t permit data on private citizens or data on national security to go across networks that we don’t have confidence (in).”

As we reported previously the Trump administration first notified its Berlin counterparts of the intelligence sharing concerns in early March, when US Ambassador to Germany Richard A. Grenell told Germany’s economics minister in an official letter that the European ally and intelligence partner "wouldn’t be able to keep intelligence and other information sharing at their current level if Germany allowed Huawei or other Chinese vendors to participate in building the country’s 5G network."

It was noted at the time the warning is "likely to cause alarm among German security circles" amid persistent terror threat, largely the result of Merkel's disastrous "Open Door" policies which allowed over 1 million middle eastern immigrants into he country. And yet it appears Germany's national security state establishment has remained unmoved, or at least unable to prevail over Merkel's government.


Major Israeli Airstrikes Kill Up To 10 Pro-Assad Forces In Pre-dawn Raid Reader 06/02/2019 (Sun) 15:38:15 Id: a00d3e [Preview] No. 14815 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Israel has admitted responsibility in a significant overnight attack on Syria which reportedly killed up to ten pro-Assad forces, including possibly seven of what the Israeli media is claiming were Iranian and Hezbollah "foreign fighters".

The predawn raid took place south of Damascus in Quneitra province and unlike prior Israeli attacks appeared to included a multi-pronged sustained offensive of warplanes and helicopters on artillery and intelligence facilities. Syrian state media confirmed the attack, saying its anti-air defenses were active and successful over Quneitra and over the capital of Damascus, but put its early casualties as three killed and seven among the wounded.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) via its official media accounts said it responded to "2 rockets launched from Syria to Israel, 1 landing withing Israeli territory," according to a statement, but without specifying who the IDF believes actually fired the rocket. The "seven foreign fighters" number originated with the Syrian opposition source Syrian Observatory for Human Rights based in the UK.

The IDF further noted that it “sees the Syrian regime as responsible for all attacks against Israel from Syrian territory.” The Times of Israel provided the following details based on IDF official statements:

Beginning at 4:10 a.m., Israel Defense Forces helicopters and planes attacked several targets connected to the Syrian army, including two artillery batteries, several observation and intelligence outposts, and an SA-2 type air defense unit, the IDF said in a statement.

Syrian media reported that Israel also struck several targets connected to Iran and is proxy militias in Syria, in the area of al-Kiswah, south of Damascus. These strikes reportedly targeted weapons caches and a military training facility.

The report added that the intelligence posts struck were located near the contested Golan Heights border and the artillery sites were just south of Damascus. It is unclear whether the exchange resulted in any material damage on the Israeli side.
