Amazon patent admits it will listen in real-time for “trigger words” that could get you arrested and imprisoned

by Lance D Johnson, Natural News:

An Amazon patent, filed in June 12, 2017, reveals a massive conspiracy to spy on you using a “voice sniffer algorithm.” If approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, this artificial intelligence can be embedded inside Amazon devices, including the Amazon Alexa.

The “voice sniffer algorithm” would take advantage of the microphones already built into Amazon devices. The technology would permit Alexa and other Amazon devices to listen to your conversations in real-time to identify “trigger words” that can give the tech giant insight into your personal life. The AI spy tech will learn about your personality, interests, purchasing habits, or glean any useful detail about your private life.

Which State Will Be The First To Suffer Fiscal Collapse?

by Daniel Mitchell, Activist Post:

Tax-motivated migration may put fiscally irresponsible states at risk of financial collapse. Which will be first?

I’m a big fan of federalism because states have the flexibility to choose good policy or bad policy.

And that’s good news for me since I get to write about the consequences.

One of the main lessons we learn (see here, here, here, here, and here) is that high-earning taxpayers tend to migrate from states with onerous tax burdens and they tend to land in places where there is no state income tax (we also learn that welfare recipients move to states with bigger handouts, but that’s an issue for another day).

A body pulled from the Chattahoochee river is that of an Atlanta researcher for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) who went missing in mid-February, Atlanta police reported on Thursday.

Timothy Cunningham, 25, was last seen February 12 after he left work midway through the day due to an illness, prompting his friends and family to sound the alarm.

Terrell Cunningham, 60, said his son’s supervisor told him that Commander Cunningham had reported for work but that he had left midday because he wasn’t feeling well. –NYT

The family of Timothy J. Cunningham, 35, grew concerned after the Harvard-trained epidemiologist and US Navy officer wouldn’t answer texts or calls. Driving over 600 miles from Maryland to Atlanta, Cunningham’s parents gained access to his house where they found their son’s phone, wallet and driver’s license.

Judicial Watch: State Department Records Show Obama Administration Helped Fund George Soros’ Left-Wing Political Activities in Albania

by Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch:

Obama USAID Used U.S. Taxpayers’ Funds to Back Soros Group’s Effort to Give Albania’s Socialist Government ‘Full Control Over Judiciary’

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch obtained 32 pages of records showing the Obama administration sent U.S. taxpayers’ funds to a group backed by billionaire George Soros, which used the money to fund left-wing political activities in Albania, including working with the country’s socialist government to push for highly controversial judicial “reform.” The records also detail how the Soros operation helped the State Department review grant applications from other groups for taxpayer funding.

The records were obtained in a May 26, 2017, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) after both the State Department and USAID failed to respond to March 31, 2017, FOIA requests (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (No. 1:17-cv-01012)). Judicial Watch agreed to dismiss the lawsuit after it received the documents and payment of attorneys’ fees.

‘If my plane explodes, ask the CIA’ – Duterte after requesting arms from Russia & China

from RT:

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t ruling out that the US might be very annoyed and consider his decision to procure weapons from China and Russia a threat, after Washington refused to supply Manila with arms.

The Philippines has been seeking modern weapons and small arms to step up combat against ISIS-linked Islamists, ever since Duterte assumed office in June 2016. However, Washington’s refusal to sell assault rifles, over concerns about the country’s human rights record amid the ongoing war on drugs, has forced Duterte to seek new suppliers. Manila, which has long depended on the US for weapons, turned to China and Russia to fill the gap.

US Gov’t Admits Funding Political Change at the Direction of Billionaire George Soros

from The Free Thought Project:

The US government has admitted to spending a whopping $9 million to carry out political reform in Albania at the behest of George Soros.

Albania — (RT) Documents the State Department was forced to publish show that it spent almost $9 million on political reform in Albania coordinated with billionaire George Soros. The US government denies the expenditure was inappropriate.

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) channeled funds into a ‘Justice for All’ campaign to reform the judicial system in Albania in 2016. The campaign was run by Soros’s East West Management Institute, according to the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. The group obtained 32 pages of State Department documents in a legal battle, which concluded with the US government submitting to a Judicial Watch Information Act (FOIA) request in exchange for a dropped lawsuit.

As Globalists ‘Summon The Demon’, This ‘Covert Weapon Of Mass Destruction’ Is Being Fast-Tracked Across America

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

– ‘The FCC should put their heads in a microwave oven, turn it on, then say microwaves are harmless’

According to this important new story over at Yahoo Finance that Steve Quayle linked to on his website on Thursday morning, more than 3,100 employees of Google have signed a petition opposing the company taking part in a Pentagon Artificial Intelligence program. With employees urging Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai to establish and enforce a policy that would keep the company and all of its subsidiaries from ever building “warfare technology”, their story is the latest evidence ‘big tech’ is in bed with ‘big brother’.

With the Pentagon hoping to expand the use of AI on the battlefield via ‘Project Maven’ as Global News Canada reports in this new story, aiming to “turn the enormous volume of data available into actionable intelligence and insights” according to the U.S. Department of Defense, as we’ve reported on ANP, numerous experts in the AI field have warned AI may lead to the human race’s extinction and as we see detailed within this ANP story, AI, the rollout of 5G and the global push towards ‘transhumanism’ are all intimately connected.

China’s “Social Credit System” Sounds Pretty Dystopian, But Are We Far Behind?

by Jon Miltimore, Activist Post:

The ACLU declared China’s system “nightmarish,” and it’s not difficult to see why.

In its third season, the British science fiction TV series Black Mirror featured an episode called “Nosedive.”

The episode, which was co-written by The Office actress Rashida Jones and starred Bryce Howard, depicted a society of smiling people who walked around with holographic bubbles that contained their “rating.” These ratings were based on how people were scored by others. A positive interaction with someone was likely to earn a good score. Upload a picture people don’t like, and one could find his rating downgraded.

As far as television goes, “Nosedive” was an insightful bit of art, cleverly panning the fishbowl nature of social media and the timeless human obsession with status. It struck a chord with both viewers and critics, earning an 8.3 rating on IMDB as well as Emmy, BAFTA, and SAG award nominations.
