Deepfakes Could Be Used as Pretext for Wars, Tech CEO Says

from Sputnik News:

Celebrities and top politicians have repeatedly been targeted by deepfake creators either to demonstrate the progress that artificial intelligence technologies are making, cast a shadow on their image, or just have fun. While deepfakes are still easy to spot, this is about to change drastically, posing new threats to humankind, experts warn.

Deepfakes could be weaponised to trigger international conflicts as “a pretext to strike first and go to war”, the CEO of video verification company Amber, Shamir Allibhai, told The Daily Star, against the backdrop of US President Donald Trump’s rhetoric towards Iran and news from North Korea about nuclear tests.

Govt. Gatekeeper Forces Establishment Journo to Admit He is a Propagandist

by Kurt Nimmo, Another Day in the Empire:

Ben Johnson, a journalist working for the Atlantic owned Defense One, wasn’t allowed to enter the exceptional homeland until he told a government goon (Customs and Border Protection “staffer”) he writes propaganda. 

The goon held up Watson’s passport. He wouldn’t return it until the guy admitted writing propaganda. An exasperated Watson did so and was allowed back into the country after the goon copied everything on his devices.  There isn’t a Bill of Rights on the border, even if you’re a citizen of the indispensable nation. It’s a Constitution-free zone and you are at the mercy of vindictive and brain-dead border interrogators. 

Lendman: ‘Ukrainegate unleashed a blitzkrieg of NYT anti-Trump venom’

from 21st Century Wire:

The so-called ‘whistleblower’ complaint that sparked impeachment proceedings has all the markings of a coordinated effort – a story put in play by the U.S. intelligence community and boosted by compliant media like the The New York Times.

Election Interference? Nancy Pelosi (center), Democrat and media collaborators are now openly pushing to impeach Trump before the next presidential election that includes Joe Biden as a candidate.

5 Stories the Media Ignored While Dividing the Country With Greta Thunberg

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

The term pedophrasty is a relatively new word — not currently accepted by an official dictionary — but that has a powerful meaning in today’s political and media environment. Pedophrasty is an “argument involving children to prop up a rationalization and make the opponent look like an asshole, as people are defenseless and suspend all skepticism in front of suffering children: nobody has the heart to question the authenticity or source of the reporting. Often done with the aid of pictures.” We have seen this tactic employed by both the left and the right sides of the political spectrum and it is, unfortunately, highly effective.

Doug Casey and E.B. Tucker on the Climate Change Hoax

by Doug Casey, International Man:

Chris’ note: “How dare you!”

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”

On Monday, 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg delivered a powerful speech to world leaders at the United Nations Global Climate Action Summit in New York.

Her message was clear. She accused them of not doing enough to save the planet.

Wow: Dems are literally REWRITING what “Trump said” on call with Ukrainian president and just making up as they go

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

We already knew that Democrats were getting desperate as the 2020 election approaches because they don’t have any strong presidential candidates and POTUS Donald Trump’s popularity is rising.

The president has delivered on virtually everything he has promised that is within his power to deliver: A stronger economy due to better economic policies, renegotiated trade deals, border wall construction, and jobs, jobs, jobs.

Dozens of Failed Climate Predictions Stretch 80 Years Back

by Petr Svab, via Lew Rockwell:

Apocalyptic climate and environmental catastrophes of global proportions have decimated the world many times over in recent decades—at least based on dozens of predictions made by various scientists, experts, and officials over the past 80 years.

Newspaper clippings documenting the predictions were recently published by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. Many of those were first collected by geologist and electrical engineer Tony Heller, who frequently criticizes—on his website—what he considers fraud in the current mainstream climate research.

NO CRITICISM of “Greta” allowed, as she’s a human shield who is being psychologically terrorized by the eco-fascist Left

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

They say that history repeats itself. And this couldn’t be more evident today than with the Left’s relentless push for sweeping globalism as a response to the supposed “problem” of global warming, as liberals trot out child eco-fascists like Greta Thunberg to do their bidding.

It’s all Greta, Greta, Greta these days, as the mainstream media broadcasts every movement made by this youth puppet, who’s been gaining global recognition for her “brave” reprimand of United Nations leaders during a recent speech.

Adam Schiff Epitomizes the Total Collapse of Democratic Party Integrity

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

US Rep. Adam Schiff, Democrat from California and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, had no qualms about lying through his teeth in his opening statement prior to the testimony of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.  Everyone present had read the transcript of the telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky, and everyone knew that what Schiff, who said he was reading from the transcript of the telephone call, was saying was not in the transcript.  How can it be that the chairman of a House committee in a room full of newspersons and TV cameras has no qualms about intentionally misrepresenting the written record in order to make it conform to the lies the Democrats and their stable of corrupt presstitutes have spread about a telephone call revealed by an alleged whistleblower, a likely Democrat operative, who claimed to have heard it second hand. 

Lies, Damned Lies, and Democrats: The MSM-DNC’s Worst Week Ever

by Stephen Green, PJ Media:

What a crushing feeling it must be to be a Democrat, an infotainment industry newsreader, or a NeverTrumper today. The week started off so full of hope, with impeachment in the air as the autumn colors turned. That was Monday. By Thursday morning it was all over but the shouting.

Oh, and the lies. Lots and lots of lies.

HUGE MEDIA SCANDAL! Liberal Media Lies and OMITS 500+ WORDS from Transcript to Claim Trump Asked Zelensky to Investigate Biden — COMPLETELY FALSE!


by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

The Mainstream Media (MSM) is dead. They refuse to report the truth. They cannot be trusted.

More Americans are waking up to their lies. Today was another example of how the MSM will do anything to protect criminals on the left and indict heroes on the right.

They will stop at nothing. No lie is too big to tell.

The mainstream media is evil.

The media lied AGAIN: Ukrainian leader brought up discussing Biden corruption probe first with Giuliani

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

If you’re getting the impression that, in the age of President Donald Trump it’s best to never believe the “mainstream” media’s ‘bombshell’ reports regarding his presidency at first glance, your instincts are serving you well.

That’s because in nearly every instance since before the president took office, the garbage media has been wrong, wrong, wrong. And they are wrong because they long ago gave up any semblance of concern for their journalistic integrity just so they can “get” this president and help depose him.
