Confirmed: New York City’s Public WiFi Stations Are Spying On You

by Kevin Samson, Activist Post:

If there is ever a perfect example of dual-use technology, it is WiFi connectivity. I’ve already covered the mounting evidence that our ubiquitous gadgets and wireless connections are doing irreparable physical harm, especially to the young and to pregnant women, but the concern about surveillance is running a parallel track.

So, when New York City announced its LinkNYC program in early 2016 to convert 7,500 public payphones into WiFi stations, I sounded the alarm about the threat it potentially posed to civil liberties.

Part of what concerned me the most is that corporations such as Qualcomm would be involved to offset the $200 million dollar cost of implementation. The city of New York would receive half of all profits, thus forming a dangerous merger of corporations with government. Additionally, data would be harvested so that information could be used to direct advertising. Officials claimed that all details collected would be anonymized, but we’ve seen that to be an empty assurance too many times.

Now that the LinkNYC program is approaching the two-year mark, it seems that those early concerns were not mere paranoia. A surprising report from mainstream Huffpost couldn’t ignore new issues that are cropping up across the city.

Apparently, a group of activists has identified the devices to have front-facing cameras, and have taken it upon themselves to cover the cameras with Post-It notes to cover them up.  However, a LinkNYC team subsequently began sweeps to remove them … and so a front-lines privacy battle has ensued:

Starting on a number of blocks on the Upper West Side, an unknown number of digital protesters has begun to adhere yellow post-it-notes onto the Kiosks, effectively blocking the camera’s view.

Then, late a night, a van marked LinkNYC drives up Broadway were a worker with a long stick with a scraper clears the Post-its. But within days, the Post-Its return.

 

Huffpost reached out to civil liberties organizations EFF and the NYCLU, but both denied knowledge of any sort of activist campaign against the program. However, both reiterated their fundamental concerns about a program which has had little to no input from the public prior to full implementation.

EFF previously has defined the scope of data collection that includes “IP addresses, anonymized MAC addresses, device type, device identifiers, and more…”

Perhaps even more troubling are the parameters of data retention, where the issue of the front-facing cameras becomes truly paramount. According to EFF, data is retained “for up to 60 days. Additionally, the LinkNYC kiosks have cameras that store footage for up to 7 days.”

Moreover, in an era of fusion centers and the overall surveillance matrix that feeds everything into databases designed (supposedly) for anti-terror functions, the NYCLU states their additional concerns:

Are We Witnessing The Biggest Sting Operation In History? ‘Sewer Rats’ Are Panicked – A Look At The Bigger Picture Shows Just How Fast The Dominoes Are Falling

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

In a new report from The Hill about how Congress is reeling from the sexual harassment deluge, which details how Congressional leaders are conflicted and dealing with each new allegation about multiple members on a case-by-case basis, attempting to decide which newly exposed member should be asked to resign, balancing that with the need to offer due process and how to move forward, and how everyone in Congress is panicked and wondering who is next to be exposed, but it is towards the middle of the article we see how deep the rot is and how many “sewer rats” there truly are walking the halls of Congress.
 

The three bombshell resignations in a single week — Conyers, Franken and Franks — have created a panicked atmosphere on Capitol Hill. Rumors are running rampant. The latest ricocheting around the Capitol is that a major national news outlet will publish a list of 20 to 30 lawmakers accused of harassment in the coming days. One GOP source said the listcould refer to secret Congressional Office of Compliance records of lawmakers who’ve privately settled sexual harassment claims in recent decades.

This past week we saw the announced resignations of three members of Congress over sexual harassment charges, allegations of inappropriate behavior, and paid settlements to hide sexual harassment. Democratic Senator Al Franken resigned after members of his party demanded it over groping women, Democratic Representative John Conyers after reports exposed him for paying out hefty settlements over sexual harassment claims, and Republican Representative Trent Franks who was about to be investigated by the House Ethics Committee for conversations with two female staffers in regards to becoming surrogates for he and his wife due to fertility issues.

In order to understand how massive a problem harassment claims in Congress truly are, the chart below, compiled by the Congressional Office of Compliance, released on November 16, 2017, showing the amount of money issued in settlements from 1997 to the date of the report in 2017, offers insight into how much taxpayer money goes towards secretly pay off the accusers.

The problem with that report and the chart is it does not inform the public of how many of those settlements were for sexual harassment claims, or who the accused is, or the accuser, and in fact it is not only the public that is unaware as we see a report from December 7, 2017, in USA Today, that even members of Congress cannot obtain that information from the Office of Compliance, because that information is “strictly confidential.”
 

The once-sleepy Office of Compliance, which handles congressional labor and employment disputes, has no power to investigate sexual harassment complaints or enforce settlements. And it operates under a cloak of confidentiality that shields both accusers and the accused alike.

“So we’re not getting anything?” Rep. Susan Brooks, R-Ind., asked at a House Administration Committee hearing on sexual harassment in Congress Thursday.

Brooks’ question came after she asked the compliance office to provide her with detailed information about sexual harassment claims made against House members or their staffs.

The compliance office provided this answer by letter on Thursday: “All counseling and mediation conducted by the Office of Compliance is ‘strictly confidential’ and all administrative proceedings and deliberations are ‘confidential’.”

Susan Tsui Grundmann, executive director of the compliance office, said she could only release information if a case had gone to a hearing officer and if the complainant had been consulted. Many cases are settled before they reach the hearing stage.

“The law doesn’t allow us to release anything to your committee,” Grundmann told Brooks on Thursday. Brooks participated in Thursday’s hearing because she is the chairwoman of the House Ethics Committee, which could investigate sexual harassment allegations if it had the names of accused lawmakers’ offices.

Let me get this straight. Congress has managed to build laws into their own system which prevents their own ethics committee from investigating settlements that have been paid out for members accused of sexual harassment. A special law to cover up the cover ups themselves?

Another issue regarding the chart above is doesn’t separate how many of those settlements stemmed directly from the House of Representatives or the Senate itself because a portion of cases before the OOC come from employing offices in the legislative branch other than the House of Representatives or the Senate, according to their November 13, 2017 “Correcting the record” newsletter.

Fed Gov’t Just Admitted It Will Continue Warrantless Spying—Even If Congress Votes to Stop It

0

by Rachel Blevins, Activist Post:

As the United States Congress runs out of time to vote on a bill that would reauthorize one of the government’s most egregious warrantless spying programs, officials are claiming that those programs won’t end anytime soon—even if they are not reauthorized by the end of the year.

The USA Liberty Act will reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2017. While the bill’s proponents have claimed it will help ensure “security” in the United States, privacy advocates have warned that will provide additional loopholes for the government to continue conducting warrantless surveillance of innocent Americans.

The assumption may be that if the USA Liberty Act is not signed into law, then the provisions from Section 702 will no longer be legal and the U.S. government will stop collecting data from innocent Americans without warrants—but intelligence officials do not see it that way.

A spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Brian Hale, told the New York Times that “the government believes it can keep the program going for months,” even if it is not reauthorized.

Hale’s reasoning stems from the fact that every year, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court authorizes the program to operate for the next 12 months. Section 702 was last authorized by the court on April 26, 2017, leaving some lawmakers hopeful that even if the Liberty Act does not pass before the end of the year, Congress will find a way reauthorize Section 702 before it actually expires on April 26, 2018.

Hale cited the “Transition Procedures” for the provision, which accompany the law in federal statute books. He told the Times that the procedures make it “very clear” that “any existing order will continue in effect for a short time even if Congress doesn’t act to reauthorize the law in a timely fashion.”

According to the definitions of Transition Procedures for the Protect America Act of 2007’s provisions for “Challenge of Directives, Protection from Liability; Use of Information” concerning the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Section 702 “shall continue to apply with respect to any directive issued pursuant to section 702 of such Act.”

While this loophole may give hope to some government officials who are in favor of violating Americans’ constitutional rights while selling them a false sense of security, NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden referred to it by writing on Twitter, “Bypass the Fourth Amendment with one weird trick.”

The Times also cited anonymous intelligence officials who reportedly said that the government is making no plans to immediately turn off the program on New Year’s Day, no matter what happens in Congress.”

Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon, told the Times that he is prepared to have “a full and open debate” over the legality of the USA Liberty Act, even if Congress delays that debate until next year.

We’ve seen this movie before: wait until the last minute, and then say, ‘crowded congressional calendar, dangerous world, we’ve just got to go along with it,’” Wyden said. “Anything now that creates an opportunity for several months of real debate, I’ll listen to.”

Rep. Justin Amash, a Republican from Michigan, has also been critical of the USA Liberty Act. When it passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 27-8 last month, Amash noted that all privacy advocates should be concerned about the overwhelming support the bill is receiving from Congress.

‘United States of Europe by 2025’: German SPD leader names his price for joining Merkel coalition

by Justin Huggler, The Telegraph:

The man who could be Germany’s vice-chancellor within weeks on Thursday called for the European Union to transform itself into a “United States of Europe”.

Martin Schulz, the leader of the German Social Democratic Party (SPD), called for a new federal constitution for the EU by 2025.

Hours before his party voted to open talks on forming a new coalition with the beleaguered Angela Merkel, Mr Schulz made clear he would demand radical EU reform and far deeper integration than previously envisaged as his price for ending weeks of political crisis in Germany.

“I want a new constitutional treaty to establish the United States of Europe. A Europe that is no threat to its member states, but a beneficial addition,” he said in a speech to his party conference.

Under Mr Schulz’s proposals, Brussels would be given power over individual member states’ foreign and domestic policy, as well as taxes.

Countries who refuse to sign up to a new federal Europe should automatically lose their EU membership, he said.

A deal with Mr Schulz’s party is Mrs Merkel’s last chance to prevent new elections after coalition negotiations with smaller parties broke down last month.

Urging delegates to vote in favour of talks with Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), Mr Schulz said he would make a “complete turnaround in Germany’s European policy” a central condition of any deal.

But Mrs Merkel lost no time in rejecting Mr Schulz’s proposals for a federal Europe, ruling them out before delegates had even finished voting.

“I believe the ability to act now is the priority, not setting long-term goals,” she said. 

More cooperation between EU members was more important than drawing up new constitutions and taking powers from member states, she argued.

“We have to be economically strong, we need to work better together in the field of defence. We must pursue a common foreign policy, a common development policy, to be taken seriously as a continent or as a European Union.

“That’s why my goal for 2025 is better cooperation on defence and these other issues.”

The threat of new German elections receded after the SPD on Thursday voted in favour of “open-ended talks” with Mrs Merkel’s party.

Deep State Coup Crumbling as Trump’s Top Intelligence Official Caught Spying for George Soros

by Jay Syrmopoulos, The Free Thought Project:

Trump’s top intelligence official authorized spying on Steve Bannon and Trump’s children—then sent the data to an intel facility owned by globalist George Soros.

Washington, D.C. – A member of the Trump transition team and former CIA paramilitary officer, John R. Maguire, reportedly revealed during a meeting prior to an intelligence-gathering operation in Afghanistan, that President Trump’s National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster—the highest-ranking intelligence official in the U.S. government—“authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump,” then proceeded to send the collected data to a surveillance facility in Cyprus owned by billionaire globalist George Soros, according to The Gateway Pundit.

Additionally, according to a report by The Intercept:

“[Maguire] said there were people inside the CIA who joined in the previous eight years [under Obama] and inside the government and they were failing to give the president the intelligence he needed,” said a person who was pitched by Maguire and other Amyntor personnel. To support his claim, Maguire told at least two people that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, in coordination with a top official at the National Security Agency, authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. Adding to these unsubstantiated claims, Maguire told the potential donors he also had evidence H.R. McMaster used a burner phone to send information gathered through the surveillance to a facility in Cyprus owned by George Soros.

For those unfamiliar with Soros, he is a champion of progressive causes globally and funds his Open Society Foundation to the tune of tens of billions of dollars. Although operating under the guise of a global philanthropist, Soros works to fund NGOs as a means of destabilizing targeted governments.

This is not the first time a McMaster-Soros connection has been exposed, as back in August, we reported that news out of Israel revealed that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is working as an inside operative for globalist billionaire George Soros, according to a number of domestic and foreign intelligence sources.

“I have confirmed from sources from inside the White House, the Israeli government and Israeli intelligence that the Israelis have intercepted email communications from General McMaster to George Soros, informing him of everything that’s going on inside the White House,” reported longtime political operative Roger Stone. “…I have double checked this with two different sources very high up in Israeli intelligence, and I actually expect the Israeli ambassador to the US to confirm this.”

Interestingly, when Trump visited Israel on his first overseas trip, McMaster was curiously excluded from the meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his national security team, which broke from standard protocol.

According to Kafe Knesset, Trump met with Netanyahu, starting with a one-on-one meeting. The forum was soon expanded by several advisors on each side, including Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt and Ambassador David Friedman on the U.S. side, according to Israeli officials.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was later invited into the meeting, per an official, but “McMaster sat outside the King David room during the course of the entire meeting.”

One former U.S. officials told Kafe Knesset that the national security advisor’s exclusion from the meeting was “highly unusual.”

“For the President to prioritize his son-in-law and his lawyer over the National Security Advisor for these kind of strategic discussions is unconventional, to say the least,” an official said.

Now, perhaps we know why.

According to an investigation by Breitbart:

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), where White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is listed as being a member for eleven years, this week added George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and another Soros-financed group to the list of donors on its website in response to a Breitbart News request on the matter.

From September 2006 to February 2017, McMaster is listed as a member of International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), where he served as consulting senior fellow. The IISS describes itself as a “world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflict.”

Back in July, Israel publicly accused Soros of attempting to continuously destabilize legitimately elected governments to forward his own agenda. With these latest revelations, it has become clear that McMaster has become one of the main conduits for strategic leaks to the mainstream media—in an effort to undermine Trump’s foreign policy goals.

Are We Approaching The End Of America As ‘A Nation Of Laws’? Mueller And The Swamp’s Sham Russia Investigation Covers Up The Reality Before Our Eyes Of Real Criminality

by Robert Kirk, All News Pipeline:

– Blatant Hypocrisy Undermines Our Faith And Confidence In The Seminal Institutions Of Our Federal Government

“When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”Frederic Bastiat — French Philosopher 

On his radio show for Tuesday, December 5th as heard in the 1st video below, Rush Limbaugh was on fire as he described the deep state hypocrisy that is chomping at the bit to take back the House next year and commence impeachment proceedings against Trump. 

Limbaugh’s point is that there was no legal or constitutional basis for appointing the partisan Mueller whose Deep State sham investigation into the fabricated Trump/Russia collusion narrative is nothing but a fishing expedition (ala Scooter Libby) the purpose of which is to gin up a spurious claim of “obstruction of justice” against President Trump as a prelude to removing Trump from office (should they retake the House) or at least to enervate and delegitimize his presidency. 

The plain fact is, as anyone with a functioning brain and common sense are well aware, Hillary didn’t lose the election because of some nefarious conspiracy between Trump and Russia to rig the election. No, the Russians did not, against the will of the people, change any votes. 

The Hitlerian Hag in the Pantsuit lost the election because in record numbers the unwashed and unredeemed of our country voted. And what repulsed us and caused us to come out in record numbers to vote had nothing to do with Russia. What we voted against was a lying duplicitous influence peddling money grubbing witch who was content to stop at nothing, including compromising our national security through her unsecured email server and the sale of her high office as Secretary of State to enrich herself and her family by influence peddling and money laundering through her family’s sham “charitable” foundation. 

Now the Deep State, in tandem with the main stream media, are pushing with unrestrained glee the hoped for next act in this Machiavellian Drama, the unseating of a duly and fairly elected president. 

During this past year we have seen obvious evidence of criminality both by the opposition candidate and high government officials. We have seen the investigation of those crimes subverted and ignored all the while being fed the constant harangue from the main stream media and the Bureaucratic Deep State about a sham investigation while ignoring the reality before our eyes of real criminality. That hypocrisy undermines our faith and confidence in the seminal institutions of our Federal Government from which our citizens, in times past, expected impartiality and the rule of law.

FDA Just Approved ‘Smart Pill’ Antidepressant So Gov’t Can Track You As They Force Medicate You

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:

With the FDA recently authorizing the world’s first “smart pill”, many ethical questions are being raised by medical doctors. Forced medication by the state seems imminent.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved what may be the world’s first “smart pill.” Abilify MyCite, (aripiprazole) a “pill with a sensor that digitally tracks if patients have ingested their medication” was approved for sale and distribution by the FDA in mid-November. Now, a month after the drug’s approval, several of the world’s leading medical doctors are questioning the ethics surrounding the controversial drug.

Presumably using “compliance” with taking prescribed medicines as justification, the drug, “has an ingestible sensor embedded in the pill that records that the medication was taken.” Abilify MyCite was “approved for the treatment of schizophrenia, acute treatment of manic and mixed episodes associated with bipolar I disorder and for use as an add-on treatment for depression in adults.” Abilify is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), a class of drugs which, by law, must contain the following black box warning label for consumers. That black box warning label reads:

• Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs are
at an increased risk of death. ABILIFY is not approved for the treatment of patients with
dementia-related psychosis. (5.1)
• Increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults taking antidepressants. Monitor for worsening and emergence of suicidal
thoughts and behaviors. (5.3)

Additionally, Abilify has been linked to serious impulse control problems in patients. In May of 2016, the FDA issued a warning to consumers about the drug’s dangers associated with compulsive and impulsive behavior. According to the FDA, taking Abilify can lead to the following behaviors among others:

Although pathological gambling is listed as a reported side effect in the current aripiprazole drug labels, this description does not entirely reflect the nature of the impulse-control risk that we identified. Additionally, we have become aware of other compulsive behaviors associated with aripiprazole, such as compulsive eating, shopping, and sexual actionsuncontrollable urges…Those with a personal or family history of obsessive-compulsive disorder, impulse-control disorder, bipolar disorder, impulsive personality, alcoholism, drug abuse, or other addictive behaviors. Consider reducing the dose or stopping the medicine if such urges develop.

Did you catch that? The very drug which the FDA just approved for bipolar disorder should be reduced or not taken if those same people develop impulsive or compulsive gambling, shopping, eating, and sexual behaviors. Complicating issues for a drug which is known to cause someone to kill themselves and engage in impulsive behaviors, the FDA has now approved the “smart pill” form of Abilify to ensure the person is taking the medicines as prescribed.

Therein lies the crux of the controversy. Not only is the SSRI Abilify already unsafe for many if not most people to take (black box warning), but the drug may indeed worsen the already impulsive actions of bipolar, and compulsive (OCD) patients.

With the FDA approving the smart pill which links to handheld computers, the family of the patient, the doctor, and presumably the pharmacy and insurance companies can now be certain if the patient is taking the medicines as prescribed. That may be comforting for families who have family members who won’t take their meds. But for people who simply do not want to take medicines which might lead to them killing themselves, have sex with total strangers, or gamble all their money away, the choice may now be taken out of their hands, especially if a judge or a court orders medicinal compliance.

Here’s how Abilify MyCite Works:

Abilify MyCite, can be swallowed just like any other pill. When that happens, the ingestible sensor inside it sends a message to a patch worn by the patient, which then transmits the information to a mobile app that the patient can monitor. If a patient opts to allow it, the patient’s caregivers and doctor can access the data online, too.

Trump Wants a Secret Spy Network Around the World to Fight the ‘Deep State’: Report

by Jake Anderson, The Anti Media:

A new report by The Intercept contends that a group of pro-Trump operatives may be attempting to form a paramilitary spy network to oppose the “Deep State” intelligence community. According to their sources, the effort is being led by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer. They have received support and assistance from Oliver North. The proposals, which are reportedly being considered by the Trump administration, may create a rogue intelligence apparatus that reports directly to Trump and CIA Director Pompeo — and no one else.

Prince categorically denies the allegations, but a former senior U.S. intelligence official who claims to have firsthand knowledge of the proposals says the network would circumvent the CIA and other intelligence agencies.

“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,” this source said. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books. The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”

Currently, Prince is fundraising for this new shadow agency, looking to bankroll it before official contracts are signed. Ex-CIA paramilitary officer John R. Maguire, who currently works for the intelligence contractor Amyntor Group and worked for the Trump transition team, is working with Prince on the proposals. Using back channels, “deniable assets,” and a well-received plan to privatize the war in Afghanistan, the two have found an audience in a White House convinced U.S. intelligence agencies are withholding information from Trump and actively colluding to thwart his agenda.

According to the report, Oliver North has been conscripted as the “ideological leader” of the movement. North was a Marine lieutenant colonel on the Reagan National Security Council and a central player in the Iran Contra scandal, for which he was convicted of 3 felonies that were later thrown out.

Prince’s vast network of secret paramilitaries, known as NOCs (spies with no official cover) in CIA jargon, extends across the world, including Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and “all across North Africa.” Prince is said to be organizing the network with opaque legal agreements that disguise his involvement.

“The NOC network is already there. It already exists for the better part of 15 years now,” said former CIA paramilitary officer, Enrique Prado, a longtime associate of Prince.

Prince denies this private spy network, though in his denial he confirms pitching the idea of privatizing the war in Afghanistan in what would be a major boon for Blackwater

“I have zero to do with any such effort and saying that I did/do would be categorically false,” Prince said in an email. “Knowingly publishing false information exposes you to civil legal action. The only effort I’ve quite publicly pitched is an alternative to Afghanistan.”

The Dumbing Down of America – By Design

by Joachim Hagopian, Global Research:

The last thing the elite wants is an informed, empowered public mobilizing any grassroots movement to oppose government tyranny.

This presentation focuses on the myriad ways in which the powers-that-be in the United States have been systematically dumbing down Americans as a society for a very long time – all by meticulously calculated design. Originally the term dumbing down was used as a slang expression in 1933 by film screenwriters to mean “revising [the script] so as to appeal to those of lower education or intelligence.”
 
The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash a population of mindless, robotic citizenry that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s schools. 
 
But prior to delving into the many ways we’ve been duped and dumbed down through the years, a cold hard look at the devastating result seems very much in order here. With doom and gloom warnings of impending collapse, the US economy is floundering still mired in recession, emaciated and cut off from life support, as a consequence of waging too many wars around the world (be they the longest running costly defeats in US history or the fast rising dirty little Special Ops wars secretly raging on every corner of the globe or Obama’s personal favorite, state sponsored terrorism from drone-filled skies). As a pawn to the military industrial complex, the US government has chosen permanent war over its own people. This treasonous decision has decimated the middle class and created a college educated indentured class struggling in heavy debt to find any means to stay afloat. With an outsourced, now vanished manufacturing base, upward mobility and the American dream have become tragic casualties of modern life, now a sad, nostalgic bygone reminder of the once greatness of America. 
 
With the US the biggest debtor nation on earth, Americans are drowning in debt as hopelessly trapped collateral damage from a rapidly sinking, overextended Empire desperate to remain the sole global superpower even if it means death to the whole human race. At home the hapless American population has become increasingly the victim of its own government’s tyranny and oppression under the constant roving eyeball of criminal surveillance and a brutal militarized security state, leaving its citizens defenseless without any security, liberty, freedom or place to hide. After centuries of carefully orchestrated design, oligarchs of the banking cabal have finally gotten what they’ve been plotting and scheming, globally enforced austerity and impoverishment reducing life in America and around the world to near Third World status, and absolute control. The oligarchs are counting on a dumbed down population too busy addicted to their video games or watching sports or Kim Kardashian’s latest wardrobe malfunction to even notice that a longtime oligarch eugenics plan is already well underway.
 
But this dismal outcome has long been in the making on many fronts. Over numerous decades a grand experiment engaging in social engineering with America’s youth has been steadily working to homogenize a lowest common denominator product of sub par mediocrity, creating generations of young Americans who can neither read nor write, nor think for themselves in any critical manner. According to a study last year by the US Department of Education, 19% of US high school graduates cannot read, 21% of adults read below 5th grade level and that these alarming rates have not changed in the last ten years. 
 
The international test results from the 2012 PISA indicate American students are lagging behind virtually all developed nations even more than in the past. China topped all 65 nations while US teenagers again scored at or below average in math, reading and science. That is because the current educational system is no longer about learning the basic A-B-C’s but simply cranking out a subclass of work force laborers. This tragic fall from grace of America’s once great educational system has education researcher Cynthia Weatherly referring to America’s current education system as “limited learning for lifelong labor.” 
 
But this planned system of a New World Order (NOW) featuring a planned global economy and a planned global education system has been promoted for well over a century. The Carnegie Foundation outlined its explicit roadmap for absolute oligarch control way back in the 1930’s. Department of Education whistleblower Charlotte Iserbyt exposes the conspired downfall of America’s educational system in her well documented chronicle The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America.
 
It turns out that America’s “father of modern education” John Dewey, an unabashed admirer of Stalin and his educational system, proclaimed his NWO agenda in 1947:

“… establishment of a genuine world order, an order in which national sovereignty is subordinate to world authority…”

As the first elected UNESCO Director-General British ProfessorJulian Huxley (brother of Brave New World’s Aldous), in 1949 had the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization pumping out pamphlets expounding the importance that children be educated devoid of any national allegiance, patriotism or family loyalties identified as the biggest barriers to their demonic ambitions:
 
      “As long as the child breathes the poisoned air of nationalism, education in world-mindedness can only produce precarious results.” 
 
Based on my personal experience working with America’s broken child welfare system, several weeks ago I wrotean article on the current child welfare system’s assault on the modern American family. That assault is but part of a wider, across-the-boards assault by the entire US government. The federalist fascists in Washington have been busily mounting an assault on the American family through the state run public education system as well. Like the separation of church and state, the Constitution explicitly calls for specific delineation between the federal government to stay out of the business of education, traditionally leaving it within the sovereignty of the states and local communities to govern. However, just as the US Constitution has been under assault, Washington is now unlawfully dictating mandates to the 1600 US school districts that they must comply with in order to avoid the cutoff of federal dollars. Thus, local school districts throughout this nation are presently under a subversive assault from the long arm of our authoritarian totalitarian government.

Second only to the Department of Defense in its annual budget, more US taxpayer dollars are funneled into the Department of Education than any other public sector. The discretionary budget for Education as of 2015 is $68.6 billion. And these days most of those dollars are being squandered to bankroll the privatization of an already failed educational system. Through privately run charter schools and federally mandated programs like Common Core, control has been snatched away from parents, teachers and elected local school boards.

The Deep State Is Crumbling-Major Confrontations Are Looming

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

The Deep State is on the ropes due to some very clever manuvering by Donald Trump.

Last night, I was one of Darin Damme’s guests on his final show on KTAR 92.3 FM, the largest news-talk station in Arizona. Darin’s show was the top rated show, called Reality Check, in the State.

I appeared on air, for 2 segments, with Jon Ritzheimer. Who is Ritzheimer? He was part of the protest group who supported the Bundy family. He did nothing wrong except help a friend protect, within the law, their 5th Amendment property rights. Jon also had the misfortune of entering into a plea agreement and was sentenced to one year prior to the announced release by Judge Navarro in the Bundy case. In other words, nobody from the Bundy et al legal team saw the release coming.

As an aside, Jon has tremendous legal bills as one might imagine. I have invited Jon onto my show, The Common Sense Show, to tell his story and to help him raise money to pay his hefty legal bills. I will have an announcement as to when Jon will appear on my show. I already know that both my reading and listening audience will be very generous in helping Jon defray these costs. Any excess funds we raise will go to LaVoy Finnicum’s family. You may recall that the unarmed Lavoy Finnicum was murdered by the FBI without being given a chance to surrender and he had no arrest warrant issued on him as well. I will have an announcement on this site and on my show when this will take place.

Brief Review of the Facts

On November 26, 2017 in the late evening hours, I received a communication from an FBI agent whom I have I have known for decades. This person is disgusted with the Deep State penetration into their organization and occasionally tells me where to look for information that they think the public should know in order to spur a public reaction.

In this communication, my source wanted to inform me of an event that had taken place with regard to the Bundy Ranch and Oregon Wildlife standoffs.

By order of the President, DOJ agents, including FBI, paid the Bundy judge of record, Gloria Navarro, a visit. They caught informed her that if she did not immediately order the release of the Bundy’s, that was going to be immediately arrested for the following:

  1. Malfeasance of office
  2. Conspiracy to commit grand theft (uranium and other raw materials) from American ranches in the West. This was Navarro’s part in the Uranium One case against the Clinton Foundation.
  3. Violation of the Logan Act in which she conspired with Senator Harry Reid and his son for entering into, or protecting, a violation of dealing with unregistered foreign agents. These unregistered agents would be from the Chinese Army who are placing solar energy farms on BLM and rancher land across the west.
  4. Possible treason for her part in covering up the event in the trial as she denied evidence to be admitted in the trial that would have exposed this national security threat and would have exonerated the Bundy’s and their rancher allies.

i reported these events on November 27, 2017 and the announced release did not take place until almost 3 days later.

I am told that Navarro is caught on tape lying to the FBI, another felony, and she has received unexplained financial renumerations that she possibly benefitted from as a result of her actions on the bench.

An Army of Informants

I have learned that the DOJ is preparing to force Wasserman Schultz, Huma Abedin and Navarro, as well as others, to turn states evidence.The thinking on the part of my source is that the Podesta brothers are publicly going down first. The big question remains on whether Podesta will flip on Hillary Clinton.

It is interesting to note that Alex Jones is reporting that Special Prosecutor, Robert  Mueller, has been formally charged by the DOJ with crimes, including the delivery of highly enriched uranium to a tarmac of an airport in Russia. I reported on this event almost 18 months ago. However, my FBI source stated that they did not believe that Mueller had been formally charged. However, he is cooperating in lieu of being charged at this point in time. The reason that the DOJ would not charge Mueller at this time, is that if he were under indictment for his actions in these related events, he would have to step down from his role as special prosecutor. As of this date, Mueller is a useful idiot in this role because all of his “pretend” investigation into President Trump who is actually setting the stage to do criminal discovery of Clinton and others. Therefore, I do not believe that Mueller has yet been charged. However, he is compromised and is acting in the role of someone who has/will turn state’s evidence. Therefore I agree with Alex Jones in principle.

I want to remind everyone that this country executed the Rosenbergs for selling nuclear secrets to the Russians. Clinton et al, sold nuclear grade material to the Russians. Which is worse? This is why Navarro released the Bundy allies.

Although Mueller has not been charged, it is my belief that Hillary and McCain have been charged. Please refer to the earlier articles I have written on the ever-shifting walking boots that could be used to conceal an ankle bracelet used to track people who are charged and need to be monitored as a result of their release. The evidence related to the potential release of these two nefarious characters is circumstantial. However, when McCain switches a walking boot from one foot to the other, one has to raise serious questions.

Conclusion

By the way, do you recall the Pedogate scandal involving the trafficking of children in DC by the so-called elite? It is true. Many arrests have been made and some of these arrests go back to the Jerry Sandusky Penn State scandal. Please recall that the President of the university has been arrested on these charges as well as Sandusky’s son.
