ZUCKERBERG WANTS FACEBOOK TO BUILD A MIND-READING MACHINE

All was going to plan. Zuckerberg had displayed a welcome humility about himself and his company. And then he described what really excited him about the future—and the familiar Silicon Valley hubris had returned. There was this promising new technology, he explained, a brain-computer interface, which Facebook has been researching.

The idea is to allow people to use their thoughts to navigate intuitively through augmented reality—the neuro-driven version of the world recently described by Kevin Kelly in these pages. No typing—no speaking, even—to distract you or slow you down as you interact with digital additions to the landscape: driving instructions superimposed over the freeway, short biographies floating next to attendees of a conference, 3D models of furniture you can move around your apartment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the future, Zuckerberg wants the entire notion of "informed consent", which has been a basemark American value for a long period of time, thrown out as "antique", and "impossible to gauge", at this point in the 21st century.

And don't think for one second that once such a machine is perfected, it will not get into the hands of those who should never be allowed to use it, and not for good, but for pure evil.

If you haven't seen it, please get Terry Gilliam's film, "Brazil", the Director's Cut, and see how the technology employed by the government, destroyed lives.

It is a brilliant, brutal view of what happens when power and technology are fused, in the interests of total control over a society; and how the end result means "neutralizing people", both physically and psychologically, who may think "differently."

BOEING, THE FAA, AND WHY TWO 737 MAX PLANES CRASHED

On Sunday an Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed, killing all on board. Five month earlier an Indonesian Lion Air jet crashed near Jakarta. All crew and passengers died. Both airplanes were Boeing 737-8 MAX. Both incidents happened shortly after take off.

Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are now grounded about everywhere except in the United States. That this move follows only now is sad. After the first crash it was already obvious that the plane is not safe to fly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Boeing knew that the plane would be unsafe without extensive pilot retraining , but sold it anyway to unsuspecting airline owners.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg should be held personally, and legally responsible; the manufacturer should have to give back the money it took from these airlines, plus fines, and Muilenburg should be tried and convicted by his peers, for knowingly selling unsafe aircraft.

But that would only happen far away and apart from the situation in the US, where "Justice!" has morphed into " Just US!!, as the battle cry of the elite."

Of course, we all know that this will never happen in this country; the monied rarely eat their own.

POMPEO ACCUSES CUBA AND RUSSIA OF PROPPING UP VENEZUELAN RULER

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Cuba and Russia on Monday of propping up President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela in the Trump administration’s most explicit argument yet that his government is a dictatorial regime kept alive by two American adversaries.

Mr. Pompeo’s comments came amid a devastating power outage that has plunged many of Venezuela’s most populous areas into darkness, spoiling food in a nation where little is available.

He denied Mr. Maduro’s accusation that foreign powers — a clear reference to the United States — had any role in creating the blackout that has brought the country to the brink of social implosion. Instead, Mr. Pompeo said, the blame lies squarely with Havana and Moscow.

“When there is no electricity, thank the marvels of modern Cuban-led engineering,” Mr. Pompeo said in comments laced with sarcasm. “When there’s no water, thank the excellent hydrologists from Cuba. When there’s no food, thank the Cuban communist overlords.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess Pompeo is completely blind to how horrific the optics are on what he said, and the way he said it.

But I would like to hope (and pray) that Putin doesn't decide that Russia's investments in Venezuela are worth a military conflict with the US right now.

Because right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the money, the weaponry; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia over Venezuelan oil, because this is truly what such a war would be about; who controls the oil, and it what currencies it is sold.

HOW STATES/EMPIRES COLLAPSE IN FOUR EASY STEPS

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH
The promises cannot be met, and so society decays into warring elites and competing constituencies.

There is a grand, majestic tragedy in the inevitable collapse of once-thriving states and empires: it all seemed so permanent at its peak, so godlike in its power, and then slowly but surely, too many grandiose, unrealistic promises were made to too many elites and constituencies, and then as growth decays to stagnation, the only way to maintain the status quo is to appear to meet all the promises by creating money out of thin air, i.e. debauching the currency.

This political expediency works most wonderfully for a time: people don't realize the silver content of their coinage is being cut to near-zero, or there's nothing holding up the value of their currency but trickery and vague allusions to past glory.

Trust in the state/empire's currency suddenly collapses in a phase shift: all seems well until the moment the avalanche sweeps it all away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of America is an empire in decline, is no secret for those of us who can see the opulent decadence around us.

The American people are now no more, in the eyes of the government, the deep state, and corporations, than fodder for taxes, and breeders of soldiers for future wars (if fully automated wars are not in use within the next 20 years.)

And we are faced with two possible outcomes; the total economic collapse of the USA, as happened with the old Soviet Union, or a world war so horrific that life itself will cease to be on this planet.

Facebook Reverses Zero Hedge Ban, Says It Made A "Mistake"

It has been a strange 24 hours.

On Monday, we first learned that for the previous two days, Facebook had banned all Zero Hedge content across its various mediums, as it went against Facebook's "Community Standards" (which to the best of our knowledge, neither we not anyone else has any idea what they are), a decision which - as we noted yesterday - surprised us for two reasons: not only do we not have an official Facebook account, but Facebook did not approach us even once with a warning or even notification.

PROPOSED BAN ON SOCIAL MEDIA GUN PICTURES PROVES GUN CONTROL IS TOTAL CONTROL

“If you post it on social media, that’s probable cause for us to come get the guns out of your house,” Democrat Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo proclaimed in a Facebook video three years ago. “That’s it. It’s now on you to explain why you have a gun in your house and why it’s on social media…”

He was stumping at the time to change the law to deny the right to keep and bear arms to young adults old enough to vote, marry, sign binding contracts and serve in the military. Pending that, he wanted parents to call the police on their children if they saw them posting pictures and videos with guns online.

A CRITICAL FLAW IN SWITZERLAND'S E-VOTING SYSTEM IS A MICROCOSM OF EVERYTHING WRONG WITH E-VOTING, SECURITY PRACTICE, AND AUDITING FIRMS

Switzerland is about to have a national election with electronic voting, overseen by Swiss Post; e-voting is a terrible idea and the general consensus among security experts who don't work for e-voting vendors is that it shouldn't be attempted, but if you put out an RFP for magic beans, someone will always show up to sell you magic beans, whether or not magic beans exist.

Swiss Post contracted with Barcelona firm Scytl to build the system, then consulted with outside security experts and KPMG to audit the system, and then announced a bug-bounty program that would allow people who promised to only disclose defects on Swiss Post's terms to look at some of the source code.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the US, as a whole, wanted a clean voting system, it would be by paper ballot, and not electronic voting whatsoever.

But of course, the Powers that Be do not want an unriggable system; they want a system to be gamed in favor of the highest bidder, in terms of which Presidential candidate will do the most for the corporate entities which them, once they have become elected.

The military-industrial complex,the Deep State, and major corporations hate and revile a clean voting system, because it just might actually give people the candidate they wanted, rather than those the corporations want; and therein lies the rub.

America's current voting system, particularly at the national level, is a very Kabuki-like show, and give the illusion of "people-power, with lots and sound and fury, and signifying nothing.

Because by the time Presidential candidates are chosen, they are chosen to continue the objectives of the Deep State, Corporations, and the military industrial complex.

The American people have no real choice whatsoever.

AOC Earns Three Pinocchios for ‘Red Herrings and False Equivalency’ Against Trump

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) once again found herself in trouble with Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler when he slapped her with “three Pinocchios” on Tuesday. She earned the dubious designation for making blatantly “misleading” statements filled with “red herrings and false equivalency” in targeting President Donald Trump.

THE ESTABLISHMENT EYES CENTRAL AFRICA FOR MORE MISSION CREEP

As if the United States wasn’t already pursuing enough murky and dubious military missions in such places as Afghanistan, Syria, and Yemen, a push appears to be underway to expand Washington’s involvement in Sub-Saharan Africa.

U.S. troops are more deeply engaged in “anti-terror” in Niger, Somalia, and other countries than most Americans realize. When four American Special Forces personnel died in Niger in 2017, even members of Congress were surprised.

A lobbying effort now seems to be taking place for U.S. intervention to alleviate suffering in the Central African Republic (CAR), because of that country’s ongoing civil war. NBC News took the lead with a story on the March 6 Today show and followed it up with a more detailed segment on the Nightly News that same evening. Cynthia McFadden was the lead journalist for the report that included searing footage of suffering in one UN-run refugee camp.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Africa is where the last of the most greedily sought-after resources still remain, to a large degree, untapped. Here's Google's observation on the "low hanging fruit", available for the pickings, in this place:

"The Central African Republic is rich in high- value natural resources, including diamonds, timber, gold, uranium, possible oil deposits and endangered wildlife. Timber and diamonds are particularly essential to CAR's economy.Nov 15, 2014"

"Post-pacification", the US government simply wants to make sure that it is completely in control of these resources, and therefore will be calling on US centric companies to exploit and expropriate them; and that they are all sold only for the American dollar.

The pattern is completely obvious, if one has been paying attention to US "interventions" elsewhere.

Ilhan Omar amplifies Israel dual loyalty charge, dismissing Democratic rebukes

Rep. Ilhan Omar has intensified her claims that some Jewish lawmakers have a dual loyalty to Israel, rejecting criticism from Democratic colleagues that she is engaging in anti-Semitism. "I should not be expected to have allegiance/ pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee," Omar tweeted Sunday afternoon. "I am told every day that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel. I find that to be problematic and I am not alone. I just happen to be willing to speak up on it and open myself to attacks." Omar, an aggressive first-term Democrat hoping to bring left-wing views to the Foreign Affairs Committee, has drawn rebukes from Democratic leaders after her comments about the U.S.-Israel alliance.

Mar 13 05:29

MORE POWER TO YOU MISS OMAR

Saying anything negative about Israel has long been the third rail of US politics and media. Israel is our nation's most sacred cow. Any questioning of its behavior brings furious charges of anti-Semitism and professional oblivion ... Criticize, or even question, Israel at your own peril. Until recently, we journalists were not even allowed to write there was an 'Israel lobby.' It was widely considered Washington's most powerful lobby group but, until lately, mentioning its name was seriously verboten ... Israel's brutal repression of Palestinians has sparked bitter anti-Israel sentiments across Europe. Not so much in America, where media leans far over to Israel's side and evangelical Christians have been bamboozled into believing that a Greater Israel is somehow necessary for the Second Coming.

The Plague of Phony Hate Crimes

So, what percentage are fake? Reilly’s problem is with coming up with an appropriate denominator of total hate crime allegations, fair and fake, to go along with his numerator of 409 phony ones. Therefore, he’s not willing to offer a precise calculation of what percentage of widely reported hate allegations are phony, merely estimating broadly that “Between 15 and 50 percent of hate crime accusations are flatly false.”

VIDEO – ‘Truth About White Helmets Gradually Coming Out’ – Russian UN Rep In Geneva

The White Helmets have not escaped any radar, far from it, as Russian and Syrian diplomats presented a report containing more than 100 eyewitness interviews with ex-militants and residents of WH-operated areas, and their testimonies of the White Helmets being more in line with what Mr. Gatilov described as ”pseudo-humanitarianists”.

Revelations about the connection to terrorist activity was not only confirmed, but links to human organ-selling was also substantial. The Permanent Representative to the UN office in Geneva, Gennady Gatilov gives insight behind-the-scenes about the lobbying involved and Western nations promoting a very different line. We can only guess as to the nature of that line.

Leftist logic: Russia shouldn’t interfere in our elections, but let’s let all illegal immigrants vote

In one fell swoop, the “Demoncrat” Democrats went from declaring their two-years-in-the-making Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy, which was a dogmatic stance against foreign interference in elections, to voting to allow all illegal immigrants (non-citizens) to freely vote in our U.S. elections. Unbelievable. Well, not really. Not considering that the Democrats live by their own insane rules that only apply when they say they apply. Still, this gets much, much better, so keep reading.

Chlorinated chicken? Eugh! (E1356)

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the post-Brexit reality: chlorinated chicken for everyone! As the UK braces for hormone-laden beef and chlorinated chicken products, Max and Stacy wonder if this isn’t a good metaphor for the monetary system, which has been injected with the growth hormone of quantitative easing. The Fed’s balance sheet is now as massive as a Franken-chicken is today. In the second half, Max interviews Mish Shedlock of MishTalk.com about the latest economic data from America, and whether or not lofty stock market valuations are warranted.

Southern Poverty Surpasses Half Billion in Assets; $121 Million Now OffshoreReports $518 million in total assets despite $21 million fall in donations

The SPLC's assets increased despite its total revenue falling by $15 million last year. The SPLC hauled in $136 million in total revenue throughout 2017. This number fell to $121 million in 2018. Its contributions and grants also fell by more than $20 million from 2017 to 2018, from $132 million to $111 million.

Despite the fall in revenue, the SPLC's vast investment portfolio expanded in 2018, which included a drastic increase in the amount of money it has parked overseas. By the end of 2018, its non-U.S. equity funds rose to $121 million, an uptick of nearly $30 million from the $92 million it had parked in offshore investments throughout 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! That looks like some serious money SPLC has stashed away...

Movie Review Of ‘Bobby Fischer Against The World’: Was The Documentary Designed To Discredit The Opinions Of A Chess Genius & National Hero?

As discussed in ‘Reclaiming An American Hero: Bobby Fischer The Fearless Genius’, Bobby Fischer was widely criticized for his controversial statements outside of chess. For example, Dick and Jeremy Schaap questioned Fischer’s sanity, while Charles Krauthammer wrote that “he’s clearly a sick man.”[34] However, it would be more accurate to state that Fischer used his prodigious intellect to read widely and deeply to discover many of the lies that pervade our society. His exposure of the Holocaust hoax is especially praiseworthy. Bobby Fischer was truly an authentic American hero.

SYRIA READY FOR WAR TO REGAIN OIL-RICH GOLAN HEIGHTS

There is, however, a more practical and less ideological reason for annexing the Golan Heights—oil.

In early 2013, Israel granted the American corporation Genie Oil and Gas a permit to explore for oil and gas on a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights. Genie Energy is advised by Dick Cheney and its shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch.

Bestselling author and strategic risk consultant F. William Engdahl writes in Golan Heights, Israel, Oil and Trump:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, (and it concerns me that this story goes to a single source as reference, World Israeli News), the Middle East is about to get into another bloody conflict, over the Golan oil and reserves here.

I have not read any confirmation in any Syrian news in English, that this was actually what Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister said.

This could well be Israeli propaganda, to give Netanyahu time to do something to make him look like " a leader" to his people, ahead of the 9 April elections in Israel.

The Middle Eastern Leadership knows that Netanyahu's hanging on to power by a very fine thread, and with a 56 page indictment against him, may well not win the next election.

I would expect things to get very nasty, if Netanyahu's internal pols don't show him winning the race for Prime Minister; cornered animals, and cornered politicians are at their most dangerous; and right now, Netanyahu is cornered, geopolitically, so it is difficult to foresee what he is willing to do at this point.

Russia to defend its Venezuela oil assets in ‘toughest way possible’

Nicolas Maduro’s staunchest international ally—Russia—reaffirmed last week its full support to the Socialist leader’s regime and his efforts to prevent what Moscow sees as interference in Venezuela’s domestic affairs.
At the same time, Russia, which vowed to defend its oil assets in Venezuela as early as the political crisis began in January, sees risks to its investments in the Latin American country and pledges to react “in the toughest way” possible within international law if those investments are threatened, Russia’s Ambassador to Venezuela, Vladimir Zaemsky, told Russian government-run newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta in an interview published this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question here, is what Russia is really ready to do, militarily here.

They need to protect their assets, which is reasonable; but will that "protection" mean the deploying actual Russian forces in Venezuela, at the behest of Maduro?

The jury is still out, but I would not bet against it.

US WARNS GERMANY IT WILL END INTELLIGENCE SHARING IF HUAWEI IS GIVEN 5G CONTRACT

SOURCE: INTEL NEWS
The United States has warned Germany that intelligence sharing between the two countries will be threatened if the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is awarded a contract to build Germany’s 5G network. The company, Huawei Technologies, is a private Chinese venture and one of the world’s leading telecommunications hardware manufacturers. In recent years, however, it has come under scrutiny by some Western intelligence agencies, who view it as being too close to the Communist Party of China. More recently, Washington has intensified an international campaign to limit Huawei’s ability to build the infrastructure for 5G, the world’s next-generation wireless network. Along with Britain, Australia and Canada, the US is concerned that the Chinese telecommunications giant may facilitate global wiretapping on behalf of Beijing’s spy agencies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump is just angry that Huawei got Germany's 5 G contract, and these actions are not the actions of a mature leadership. This is a 3 year old saying angrily, "I'm taking my toys, and going home!!"

This isn't about Chinese wiretapping; this is about no US company getting the money for the contract, because,yet again, in terms of invention and innovation, the US finds itself behind the proverbial 8 Ball.

MARCO POLO IS BACK AS ROME RIDES CHINA'S NEW SILK ROAD

SOURCE: PEPE ESCOBAR, ASIA TIMES
All roads seem to lead to Rome as Italy expresses its love for China’s Belt and Road Initiative...

President Xi Jinping is due to arrive in Italy for an official visit on March 22. The top theme of discussion will be the New Silk Road, or the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

A day earlier, in Brussels, the EU is to debate a common strategy related to Chinese investments in Europe.

A substantial part of the EU is already linked de facto with BRI. That includes Greece, Portugal, 11 EU nations belonging to the 16+1 group of China plus Central and Eastern Europe and, for all practical purposes, Italy.

And yet it takes an undersecretary in the Italian economic development ministry, Michele Geraci, to tell the Financial Times that a memorandum of understanding supporting BRI will be signed during Xi’s visit, for all (White House) hell to break loose.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What does President Trump intend to do about this?!?

More economic Sanctions?!?

More bombings?!?

At the moment, if the meeting does go through on the 22nd, President Trump has very little ammo against either China, or Italy here, and is in no position to bargain.

Geologist Accuses Apple of Political Bias in Removing App Countering Climate Alarmism

Political figures who support the so-called Green New Deal and other proposals to restrict carbon dioxide emissions are up against some “inconvenient facts” that Americans may access immediately through a smartphone application, a geologist and author says.

But there’s one big problem.

The app, called Inconvenient Facts, is available only to Android users through the Google Play Store. Since March 4, users of Apple’s iPhone no longer can access the app through the tech giant’s App Store.

POPULATION CONTROL IS THE NEW NAME OF THE GAME: KREMLIN VIES WITH CHINA TO SEE WHO CONTROLS THE INTERNET BETTER

SOURCE: WOLF STREET
BY FRED DUNKLEY, SAFEHAVEN.COM:
In a thinly veiled attempt to gain control of the internet, the Russian State Duma has passed two bills designed to do two things: ostensibly halt the spread of “fake news” and keep people from spreading information that “disrespects” the government. But Russians aren’t having it.
On Sunday, thousands took to the streets across the country to protest the government’s “digital sovereignty bill” that will require all Russian telecoms companies to reroute internet traffic through the state telecom regulator, Roskomnadzor. It means censorship and what protesters are now calling the rise of the “internet iron curtain”.

On March 7, the Russian State Duma—the lower house of parliament—passed the two bills, and now they go up for a second vote later this month. If passed, they will be signed into law by President Putin. In Moscow alone on Sunday, some 15,000 took to the streets, Reuters reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent people in all countries where this kind of censorship is attempted, will find a way around such strictures; I am sure that some very smart Russians, will certainly find a way to make this happen.

US REGIME CHANGE BLUEPRINT PROPOSED VENEZUELAN ELECTRICITY BLACKOUTS AS ‘WATERSHED EVENT’ FOR ‘GALVANIZING PUBLIC UNREST’

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
THE US-FUNDED CANVAS ORGANIZATION THAT TRAINED JUAN GUAIDO AND HIS ALLIES PRODUCED A 2010 MEMO ON EXPLOITING ELECTRICITY OUTAGES AND URGED THE OPPOSITION “TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION…TOWARDS THEIR NEEDS”
BY MAX BLUMENTHAL
A September 2010 memo by a US-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaido and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as “a watershed event” that “would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate.”

The memo has special relevance today as Guaido moves to exploit nationwide blackouts caused by a major failure at the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant at Guri dam – a crisis that Venezuela’s government blames on US sabotage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now Americans know; this is textbook, and with US diplomats out on their collective ear by the weekend, expect the next chapter of this brutality to unfold close to that point in time.

There is a video from the daily mail which will haunt me for all my days; it is that of a mother, carrying the body of her dead daughter, because no hospital had the electricity to treat her, and were all shut down.

And DAMMIT, NO, Mike Pompeo, President Trump, or John Bolton, do not EVER let me hear you describe this situation as one of collateral damage; the blood on your hands, from this manufactured crisis, is and ultimately will be enough to drown oceans.

THE EUROPEAN UNION'S MANDATORY NATIONAL BIOMETRIC ID CARD WILL AFFECT 512 MILLION PEOPLE

A recent European Union (EU) announcement about national ID's will destroy millions of people's privacy and create a near global biometric database.

An article in State Watch News revealed that the EU has agreed to create a MANDATORY national biometric ID card.

"Measures being negotiated as part of the EU's 'Security Union' are moving ahead swiftly, with the Council and Parliament reaching provisional agreements on new rules for immigration liaison officers, the EU's Visa Code and the introduction of mandatory biometric national identity cards; and the Council agreeing its negotiating position on the new Frontex Regulation."

Earlier this week the Nepal government announced their plans to roll-out a national biometric ID card that will affect 30 million people.

Last month, I wrote an article warning people about the global effort to restrict everyone's right to travel. But what is happening across Europe and Asia should send chills down everyone's back.

HOW MONSANTO FOUGHT A NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT OF ROUNDUP ACTIVE INGREDIENT GLYPHOSATE

In March 2015, agrochemical giant Monsanto had a problem. The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that glyphosate, the principal ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weed-killer product, was probably carcinogenic to humans.

Negative results from the IARC panel, which identifies and evaluates environmental causes of cancer in humans, could mean a potential hit to the company's profitability. Roundup is a major profit generator for Monsanto. In 2015, Monsanto made nearly $4.76 billion US in sales and $1.9 billion in gross profits from its "agricultural productivity" sector, a large part of which was made up of Roundup sales, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

A review by CBC/Radio-Canada of internal Monsanto documents disclosed in the court case of Dewayne Johnson, who sued Monsanto and won $78 million last October, showed the many efforts the company took to fight the IARC assessment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a company which should be completely sued out of existence, for the horrible cases of cancer it has created for people using it.

And not only should it be sued out of existence, but also, all executives who signed off on the fake reality that it was non-toxic, should spend some very long time in jails, to insure that nothing lie this ever happens again.

Google will ‘de-rank’ RT articles to make them harder to find – Eric Schmidt

“We are working on detecting and de-ranking those kinds of sites – it’s basically RT and Sputnik,” Schmidt said during a Q & A session at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada on Saturday, when asked about whether Google facilitates “Russian propaganda.”

FEDS TO UNSEAL EPSTEIN DOCUMENTS REVEALING SCOPE OF BILLIONAIRE'S INT'L CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING RING

On Monday, a Manhattan appeals court gave billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former alleged partner in crime, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, until March 19 to establish good cause as to why documents detailing the scope and size of their international child sex trafficking operation should remain sealed. Failing to do so would mean these documents will be made public.

“We’re grateful that the court ruled the summary judgment papers are open and they are moving to expedite having them unsealed,’’ said Sanford Bohrer, the attorney representing the Miami Herald. “This is very unusual for a court to do this.”

The Herald reports that the appeal is supported by 32 other media companies, including the New York Times and Washington Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Grab the popcorn, folks, this... is going to get interesting.

You see, the monied never, ever believe that they are going to get caught over anything ugly or nasty they have done, that the other elite and monied will basically forgive them, and leave them to their "own persuasions."

YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT FACEBOOK HAS BANNED NOW...

If this sort of extreme censorship continues, pretty soon anybody that has anything even remotely important or interesting to say will be completely banned by Facebook. As you will see below, Facebook has just banned Zero Hedge, and they have also just announced that they will be systematically censoring any content that has “misinformation” about vaccines. Of course this is just the latest chapter in a relentless campaign by the social media giants to censor alternative sources of information. Since Donald Trump’s victory in November 2016, the social media crackdown has just gotten worse and worse, and it has gotten to the point where we can now safely say that free speech is dead on the major social media platforms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and Google have, by their collective actions, demonstrated that they are now the 4th Arm of the American government, the horrific dark surveillance arm, which now joins The Legislative, Judicial, and the executive branches in their ugly march to the "unity mombo", and to try to assure us astounded Americans that all is right with whatever this government does or says.

Apparently, to the heads of these countries, consider the classic novel "1984" not a cautionary tale, but a "how-to manual".

I am reminded of what happened shortly before Hitler rose to power, and started World War II. He took over all communications in order to make the German people believe that everything he was doing was just and right. Propaganda in Nazi Germany

And we are so very close to the precipice of another world conflict, that I can almost taste it.

ISRAELIS ‘UNDERGO JEWISH DNA TEST BEFORE BEING ALLOWED TO MARRY’

Israel’s rabbinate “has been performing genetic testing on Israelis from the former Soviet Union, to check if they are ‘genetically Jewish’ as a condition for marriage registration”, according to Ynet.

The new site reported that “at least 20 couples have come forward after having been asked to undergo the procedure in the past year.”

“Although the existence of such tests was initially denied by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau admitted to having requested that some couples prove their Jewish status,” Ynet added, noting that “Lau claimed those were isolated incidents and there was no coercion.”

Ynet’s investigation revealed that “the complicated procedure was undertaken not only by the couples themselves but also by their relatives.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but understanding how vicious, vile condemnation of "the other" drives both Israeli government, and its religious leaders, I should not have been so surprised that these practices were being demanded by these rabbis, even though the statement is made that there is "no coersion."

 RON PAUL: BIPARTISAN ATTACKS ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT

The House of Representatives recently passed legislation that would expand the national background check system to require almost everyone selling firearms, including private collectors who supplement their incomes by selling firearms at gun shows, to perform background checks on the potential buyers. The bill has a section purporting to bar creation of a national firearms registry. However, the expanded background check system will require the government to compile lists of those buying and selling guns. In other words, it creates a de facto national gun registry.

Similar to the experience with other types of prohibition, making it more difficult to legally buy a gun will enhance the firearms black market. Criminals, terrorist, and even deranged mass shooters will thus have no problem obtaining firearms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ron Paul is absolutely, one thousand percent correct here.

ESCALATION FEARS GROW IN VENEZEULA AS GUAIDÓ SIGNALS SUPPORT FOR FOREIGN INTERVENTION AND US WITHDRAWS DIPLOMATS

Concerns over the Trump administration's increasingly hostile policy in Venezuela grew Tuesday after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the U.S. was withdrawing all diplomatic personnel from the country.

Pompeo cited the "deteriorating situation" in Venezuela that escalated in January after the U.S. recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as "interim president," rebuking President Nicolas Maduro and coordinating efforts to overthrow the elected government.

American Pravda: Amazon Book Censorship

As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the power to ban discordant views nor punish their advocates, anonymous tech company censors regularly take these steps, seemingly based upon entirely opaque and arbitrary standards which lack any power of appeal. No one really knows why some individuals are banned or “de-platformed” and others are not, and surely this looming uncertainty has imposed self-censorship upon hundreds of individuals for every publicized victim who receives an exemplary punishment.

Mar 12 08:50

Will the Censors Win?

The Internet is seen as a savior that will take over the function of honest reporting and free speech now that the print and TV media and NPR serve as the Ministry of Propaganda. This is true only if people migrate from Google, Facebook, Twitter, and so forth, to the alternatives that do not block content at odds with official explanations.

Unfortunately, people tend to be stuck in their ways. They are accustomed to Google, Facebook, and Twitter, don’t know of the alternatives, and if they did, are disinclined to spend their time to set up differently.

Liberal America created a society that is heavily into denunciation, a primary function of social media. Even icons of the left are denounced when they fall behind the pace of hatred set by Identity Politics.

What does the high school student suing CNN for $250m actually hope to achieve?

Young Nick Sandmann is reportedly to sue CNN for a whacking $250m over its coverage of his encounter with an indigenous American man. Rather than drawing a line under the affair, it is likely to further polarise opinion.

The incident which has led us here happened in January. Sandmann and his schoolmates from Covington Catholic High School were in Washington for a pro-life march, "Make America Great Again" hats proudly atop their heads. By coincidence, the Indigenous People’s March was taking place at the same time and at some stage Sandmann came face to face with a Native American, Nathan Philips – the two seemingly at diametrically opposed ends of America’s social and cultural spectrum.

Facebook performs U-turn after removing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's ads calling for break up of social media giant and Amazon and Google because they have 'bulldozed the competition and used private information for profit'

Facebook has performed a U-turn after removing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's ads calling for the break up of the social media giant and Amazon and Google.

Warren, who launched the ads as part of her presidential campaign, claimed that the three tech companies had 'bulldozed the competition' and 'used private information for profit'.

In one of the removed videos, Warren said: 'We all use them. But in their rise to power, they've bulldozed the competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field in their favor.'

The ad went on to talk about Facebook's merger with potential competitor WhatsApp, as well as claiming that Google selectively promotes its own products over competitors.

Jigsaw Chrome Extension Tunes Out Internet Toxicity

What if you could turn a dial and tune out an abusive tweet in your Twitter mentions or an insulting comment on Facebook?

Today, Google's sister company Jigsaw released an experimental Chrome browser extension called Tune, which lets users control how much "toxicity" they want to see in comments across the internet. Tune is built on Perspective, Jigsaw's API that trains machine learning (ML) models to identify and score comments that could be perceived as abusive or harassment.

At launch, the browser extension works across social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, and comment platform Disqus. It acts as a knob that lets users set the "volume" of conversations. Turn it up to see everything, or turn it down all the way to "zen mode" to replace toxic comments with small colored dots.

Brilliant YouTuber Lampoons Censorship of Jewish Influence - Must-See Viral Video (Full Transcript)

With all the Bruhaha around the admirable Ilhan Omar and her refusal to be cowed by Jewish elites, this video could not be more topical.

YouTube is literally awash in videos discussing the Jewish Question, many of which are quickly banned by YouTube's J-Left censors, only to pop up again on new accounts like so many forest mushrooms, a fact which itself speaks volumes about changing public attitudes.

This one, from YouTuber 'Alternative Hyphothesis' might be the best one we've seen yet, because he creates an ingenious and humorous defense mechanism against censorship, which criticizes and highlights that very censorship.

Head of the Ukrainian General Staff: Russia is preparing to attack us on three sides

THE PRESIDENT of the Ukrainian General Staff Viktor Muzenko has declared that "there is a real threat of the Russian army's three-side attacks."

From north, east and south.

He cited - without offering any evidence - that Russia was ending the formation of military formations that, together with special units, would "make up the bulk of the invading forces".

At the same time, he claimed that the Ukrainian army - because it will fight in its own country and, thanks to its high mobility, adapting and autonomy - will have a "strategic advantage" over the Russian "invading forces".

This is most likely in the function of the Ukrainian presidential
election, whose first round will be held on March 31st.

WHY IRAN, NOT VENEZUELA, IS THE LIKELIEST U.S. SHOOTING WAR

Despite growing Trump administration tensions with Venezuela and even with North Korea, Iran is the likeliest spot for Washington’s next shooting war, says Bob Dreyfuss for TomDispatch.

The Trump Administration is Reckless Enough to Turn the Cold War With Iran Into a Hot One

Here’s the foreign policy question of questions in 2019: Are President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, all severely weakened at home and with few allies abroad, reckless enough to set off a war with Iran?

Could military actions designed to be limited — say, a heightening of the Israeli bombing of Iranian forces inside Syria, or possible U.S. cross-border attacks from Iraq, or a clash between American and Iranian naval ships in the Persian Gulf — trigger a wider war?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, in an article from amn.com, the following headline appeared:

Israel to go to war in Syria, if Netanyahu's leadership is in jeopardy

And I have to wonder: is THIS the reason President Trump has not ordered our military completely out of the country?

Are they to be the "sacrificial lambs" to get hit from an Israeli false flag mission, claiming it was Syrian (or Russian troops) who did the deed?

This, of course, would not be the first time that the Israeli government ordered our troops to be murdered; and if your mouth is gaping in outrage right now, you need to cage the rage, and read about the bombing of the USS Liberty here: The USS Liberty: If Americans Knew

And of course, there is the threat from Al Assad, that if Israel's IDF does not leave the Golan Heights, Syria will attack them militarily, to get them out. Syria notifies israel that it will attack the IDF in the Golan Heights

So, in summation, there are 4 scenarios which may be playing out here: you have a potential Israeli strike against Iran, if Netanyahu feels his days as prime minister are numbered; you have a potential Israeli strike against alleged Iranian outposts in Syria (and/or against US forces there), potential Syrian strikes against Israel in the Golan, or potentially, US strikes against Iran

It is very infuriating, seeing how many people want the spectre of death and destruction to continue its rampage in the Middle East; this may well involve both Russia and the US, if any of these scenario unfold or some of them unfold simultaneously.

That Fake Poll on the Green New Deal

By Phillip W. Magness

Over 80 percent of American voters support the Green New Deal (GND), or so claim its backers citing a recent survey by a group of academic pollsters. Furthermore, this public endorsement is supposedly bipartisan, with 92 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans indicating that they either strongly or somewhat support the Far Left package to reshape the entire American economy around “green energy” in the course of the next decade.

A very different story lurks beneath the surface of these impressive-looking statistics....

SUBVERSIVE STATECRAFT SCANDAL EXPOSES BOMBSHELL GERMAN-DESIGNED BREXIT PLAN

Cast your mind back to summer last year. The Cabinet gathered at the Prime Minister’s country retreat of Chequers, on the sylvan Chiltern downs. There was very important business: Theresa May, flanked by senior civil servant Olly Robbins, presented the draft agreement for Britain’s departure from the EU. For the first time, ministers (including Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson) saw the proposed terms – and the extent to which May would abide by her pledge of ‘Brexit means Brexit’. The chief whip instructed that nobody could leave without consenting to the Withdrawal Agreement, unless they resigned – and must then find their way home without ministerial transport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, the owner of this transcript has to come forward in the UK, and explain to the British people precisely what has been done to them, by their leadership, "D NOtices" be damned.

Snap elections need to be held in the UK as quickly as possible, because Prime Minister May needs to be replaced, and quickly, by people who understand what Brexit meant, in terms of the EU dictatorship of Brussels, and how the UK might prosper outside their relationship with the EU.

WOMAN ACCUSED OF ASSASSINATING KIM JONG UN'S BROTHER HAS BEEN FREED

Following the decision in Siti's case (the two women are facing separate cases though they are jointly on trial), a lawyer for Huong also requested an acquittal. The trial has been suspended until Thursday to allow time for the Malaysian attorney general to make a decision.

After her release, Siti, clad in a black traditional Malay dress and headscarf, was rushed to the Indonesian embassy, where she gave a brief statement to the media.

"I feel so happy. I did not expect that today I would be released,” she said, adding that she had been treated well in prison.

The two women told authorities that they thought they had been hired to participate in a reality TV show prank, and that they didn't realize what they had been tricked into doing until it was too late.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remote assassinations have to be done in a way which completely exonerates the real perpetrators, and have to go precisely to plan.

That is what failed here; and that makes this moment one of the most clumsily-created political assassinations in North Korea's history.

This kind of remote political assassination, to consolidate one's power, as Kim Jung Un has pretty obviously had done, are considered a big, fat, hairy no-no in the 21st century, save for the assassination of Adnan Khashoggi and The Clinton Body Count

More Power to You Miss Omar

Saying anything negative about Israel has long been the third rail of US politics and media. Israel is our nation’s most sacred cow. Any questioning of its behavior brings furious charges of anti-Semitism and professional oblivion.

I keep in my bookcase a cautionary book, ‘They Dared Speak Out’ written by US senators and congressmen who all lost their positions after rebuking Israel for its mistreatment of Palestinians or daring to suggest that Israel had far too much influence in the US.

Journalists learn this first commandment very early. Criticize, or even question, Israel at your own peril. Until recently, we journalists were not even allowed to write there was an ‘Israel lobby.’ It was widely considered Washington’s most powerful lobby group but, until lately, mentioning its name was seriously verboten.

After Corporate Media Spent 1/3 of 2019 Promoting Multiple Hate Crime Hoaxes, They Are Entirely Silent When Black Transgender Attacks 11 Whites in New York

For roughly 32 days in 2019 – courtesy of the corporate media hyping the Jazmine Barnes shooting in Houston, Covington Catholic boys in Washington D.C., and the Jussie Smollet MAGA incident in Chicago – the specter of pervasive white racism has haunted individual non-whites and, collectively all non-whites across the nation.

All of these incidents enabled the corporate media to attack white America without remorse and with a vengeance once reserved for propaganda pieces directed at Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany in World War II.

When the narratives the corporate media utilized to promote these anti-white propaganda stories collapsed, the damage had already been done: non-whites had their prejudices confirmed that white America was engaging in hate crimes against fellow non-whites.

Truth be damned.

The Foilies: Recognizing The Worst in Government Transparency From 2018

By Dave Maass, Hayley Tsukayama, Camille Fischer, and Aaron Mackey

Around the world, nerds of all ages are using laws like the United States’ Freedom of Information Act (and state-level equivalent laws) to pry free secrets and expose the inner workings of our democracy. Each year, open government advocates celebrate these heroes during Sunshine Week, an annual advocacy campaign on transparency.

But the journalists and researchers who rely on these important measures every day can’t help but smirk at the boys’ scripted innocence. Too often, government officials will devise novel and outrageous ways to reject requests for information or otherwise stymie the public’s right to know. Even today—20 years after the events set in the episode—the White House continues to withhold key documents from the Kennedy assassination files.

$250M Lawsuit Against CNN Imminent; Covington High MAGA Student Suffered "Vicious" And "Direct Attacks"

CNN is about to be sued for more than $250 million for spreading fake news about 16-year-old Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the MAGA-hat-wearing teenager appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum. Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong - after the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann's reputation.

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.
