Chinese Media: ‘Reckless,’ Lazy Hong Kong Students Need a Good Communist Education

by John Hayward, Breitbart:

China’s state-run Global Times on Wednesday dumped a deeply patronizing editorial upon the student protesters of Hong Kong, describing them as lazy and reckless youth who desperately need the discipline and perspective of a solid education in Communist schools.

The Global Times castigated angry Hong Kong youths for “yelling radical, separatist and insulting slogans at the police, the chief executive, the government and even their motherland – China.”

Cop Arrested for Framing Dozens of People, Including Planting Meth On Innocent Grandma

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Jackson County, FL — Dozens of innocent people who were rotting in jail have been freed and their charges erased after the corrupt cop who put them there was caught on his own body camera planting meth on an innocent mother. as TFTP has reported, Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy Zachary Wester has since been fired and a slew of lawsuits are now rolling in. And, this week, this most insidious police officer was arrested on 52 counts of planting meth and other street drugs on entirely innocent motorists he would randomly pull over.

The Death of Privacy: Government Fearmongers to Read Your Mail

by Philip Giraldi, Global Research:

It is discouraging to note just how the United States has been taking on the attributes of a police state since 9/11. Stories of police raids on people’s homes gone wrong are frequently in the news. In one recent incident, a heavily armed SWAT team was sent to a St. Louis county home. The armed officers entered the building without knocking, shot the family dog and forced the family members to kneel on the floor where they were able to watch their pet struggle and then die. The policemen then informed the family that they were there over failure to pay the gas bill. Animal rights groups report that the shooting of pets by police has become routine in many jurisdictions because the officers claim that they feel threatened.

Project Veritas: 1,000 Google Employees Signed Internal Anti-Breitbart Petition

by Alana Mastrangelo, Breitbart:

An internal Google petition “to end Google’s business with Breitbart” was recently leaked to Project Veritas. The petition — which over 1,000 Google employees have signed — calls for labeling Breitbart News as “prohibited content” to block the news outlet from “all Google-served ads.”

A Google insider says that a petition has been circulated among Google employees, calling on banning Breitbart News from Google’s advertising networks, in order to cut off the news platform from ad revenue, according to a recent report by Project Veritas.

Life-Altering Copyright Lawsuits Could Come to Regular Internet Users Under a New Law Moving in the Senate

by Ernesto Falcon, Activist Post:

The Senate Judiciary Committee intends to vote on the CASE Act, legislation that would create a brand new quasi-court for copyright infringement claims. We have expressed numerous concerns with the legislation, and serious problems inherent with the bill have not been remedied by Congress before moving it forward.

In short, the bill would supercharge a “copyright troll” industry dedicated to filing as many “small claims” on as many Internet users as possible in order to make money through the bill’s statutory damages provisions. Every single person who uses the Internet and regularly interacts with copyrighted works (that’s everyone) should contact their Senators to oppose this bill.

Tommy Robinson slapped with 9 months in jail for ‘contempt of court’

from RT:

Former EDL leader Tommy Robinson has been sentenced to 9 months in prison after being found guilty of contempt of court, linked to his filming of criminal defendants outside of a courthouse and broadcasting the footage online.

Sentencing Robinson at the Old Bailey in London on Thursday, Judge Dame Victoria Sharp told him: “You will be committed in prison for a period of 19 weeks.”  Robinson will serve up to one half of that period to reflect the time already served.

Nothing less than a custodial penalty would properly reflect the gravity of the conduct we have identified.

Tommy Robinson case – live: EDL founder’s supporters erupt as he is jailed for contempt of court

by Peter Stubley, The Independent:

Tommy Robinson faces being sent back to prison today for encouraging ”vigilante action” against defendants in a grooming gang trial during a video livestreamed on Facebook.

The founder of the English Defence League was found in contempt of court last week over the film, which breached reporting restrictions on the case in Leeds in May 2018 and came close to collapsing the case against the guilty men.

FBI, ICE Using Facial Recognition to Scan Millions of Driver’s License Photos

by Jake Johnson, Activist Post:

A trove of public records obtained by privacy experts at Georgetown Law revealed that ICE and the FBI have used facial recognition technology to mine state driver’s license databases for information on millions of Americans without consent, a practice critics condemned as a “disturbing” breach of civil liberties.

According to the Washington Post, which first reported on the documents late Sunday, “Thousands of facial-recognition requests, internal documents, and emails over the past five years… reveal that federal investigators have turned state departments of motor vehicles databases into the bedrock of an unprecedented surveillance infrastructure.”

The Heart of Darkness: The Sexual Predators Within America’s Power Elite

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensating to increase. And the dictator (unless he needs cannon fodder and families with which to colonize empty or conquered territories) will do well to encourage that freedom.”—Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Power corrupts.

Anyone who believes differently hasn’t been paying attention.

Politics, religion, sports, government, entertainment, business, armed forces: it doesn’t matter what arena you’re talking about, they are all riddled with the kind of seedy, sleazy, decadent, dodgy, depraved, immoral, corrupt behavior that somehow gets a free pass when it involves the wealthy and powerful elite in America.

Vimeo is purging ALL vaccine awareness channels as part of coordinated tech censorship sweep

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

Not to be outdone by YouTube with its continued efforts to stifle online free speech, the competing video platform Vimeo has now begun to censor channels and pull content that expresses any type of skepticism about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines.

Joining in on Big Tech’s anti-First Amendment fray, Vimeo recently announced that it will no longer allow people “to use our platform to spread hateful ideologies,” which to Vimeo includes:

Users On Wikipedia Are Trying To Quietly Edit Out Democratic Connections In Epstein’s Bio

by Brandon Morse, Red State:

The sensational case surrounding billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein hasn’t just stopped at Epstein. People are turning it into a political fight due to Epstein’s habit of being connected to big political names such as Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

As people in our society will do, when they want to learn who somebody is they’ll hit up America’s number one source of information, Wikipedia. The site is open sourced, meaning anyone can come in and make changes to a page. This can be used to update references, correct information, or in some cases, rewrite history for malicious reasons.

WATCH: Cops Taser, Pepper Spray Dad in Front of His Kids, for Filming

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

An innocent father was attacked by police who tasered and pepper sprayed him because he was practicing his first amendment right to film them.

Chicago, IL — In the land of the free, there are ostensible checks and balances which are in place to prevent corrupt and power drunk government officials from overstepping their authority and depriving people of their rights, especially for filming in public. The largest ostensible restraint on this power is the constitution. However, as TFTP has reported for years, despite the fact that police swear an oath to uphold this constitution, they are all too often the ones who ignore it.

DISAPPEARING EBOOKS

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

I knew as soon as I saw this story that I would have to blog about it. Not only did several people send some version of it to me, but the subject is near and dear to my heart. Reason? I’ve been warning about the dangers of ebooks for some time. And this story more or less concretizes and to some extent confirms my concerns. Suppose one day you logged into your ebook cloud (or whatever it is), and discovered a notice that your ebook was gone. Not just “temporarily unavailble, please check back in a few minutes,” but gone.
