More proof has emerged confirming that China has erected expansive ‘re-education centers’ for up to a million or more ethnic Uighurs in what a recent United Nations statement said resembles a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy”.
The minority Turkic speaking ethno-religious group concentrated in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang has found itself under increased persecution and oversight by Chinese authorities of late as their mostly Sunni Islamic identity and separatist politics have resulted in historic tensions with the Communist government.
A U.N. panel examining human rights inside China wrapped up last week and included a Chinese delegation of about 50 officials which formally denied that prisons have been set up for the Uighur population.

A crowdfunding campaign has succeeded in raising the funds necessary to pay a Freedom of Information Act request fee for documents related to the CIA’s controversial MKUltra program.
John Greenewald of Black Vault, a website that publishes government documents, appealed to the internet for help after the agency refused to waive the $425 fee it was demanding to release the documents. Greenewald, who has been filing FOIA requests for two decades, had previously published files on MKUltra, a program best known for dosing individuals with drugs like LSD to research mind control. The program was shut down, and the documents were reportedly destroyed in 1973 at the order of then-director Richard Helms, but some were eventually released.

GOOGLE’S FORMER HEAD of free expression issues in Asia has slammed the internet giant’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, calling it a “stupid move” that would violate widely held human rights principles.
As The Intercept first reported last week, Google has been quietly developing a search platform for China that would remove content that China’s authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about political opponents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest. It would “blacklist sensitive queries” so that “no results will be shown” at all when people enter certain words or phrases, according to internal Google documents.

Over the past century, more than a few great writers have expressed concern about humanity’s future. In The Iron Heel(1908), the American writer Jack London pictured a world in which a handful of wealthy corporate titans – the ‘oligarchs’ – kept the masses at bay with a brutal combination of rewards and punishments. Much of humanity lived in virtual slavery, while the fortunate ones were bought off with decent wages that allowed them to live comfortably – but without any real control over their lives.
In We (1924), the brilliant Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin, anticipating the excesses of the emerging Soviet Union, envisioned a world in which people were kept in check through pervasive monitoring. The walls of their homes were made of clear glass, so everything they did could be observed. They were allowed to lower their shades an hour a day to have sex, but both the rendezvous time and the lover had to be registered first with the state.

Most Americans are ill-informed, dis-informed, and uninformed easy marks to be fooled time and again – no matter how many previous times they were duped.
They’re victims of falsified state narratives and scoundrel media propaganda repeating it, along with what the late Gore Vidal and Studs Terkel called the United States of amnesia, real information on vital issues passing through their minds like water through a sieve – understanding something today, erased from their memory later on.

Welcome to all you first-years matriculating next month at our beautiful campus in the lovely town of Brainwash, Massachusetts. We used to call you “Freshmen”, but we can’t say that anymore without triggering. And “Fresh-NonGenderBinary” is too hard to write and likely a passing phase, despite the state of Maine now using it on driver’s licenses.
To protect you from being called a freshman (and other offenses), we are building Safe Spaces as fast as we can. Be assured that no faculty member of this University will keep their job if you choose to take offense at anything they do or say. At Brainwash University, you have the right to not be offended.

According to the US Government, MK ULTRA was the code-name for a secret program run by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to conduct mind-control experiments on human beings from 1953 to 1964. The people used in these experiments did not suspect it, seemed to be chosen at random, and were often left emotionally crippled for the rest of their lives.
The rationale for this type of activity? Well, it’s the typical answer, for ‘national security’ purposes. Basically, the program was designed to make people do things they normally wouldn’t do whilst under mind control, for the purposes of whoever is ‘in charge’ and calling the shots atop the military industrial complex.

The Council on Foreign Relations delivered an Orwellian presentation recently that unsurprisingly went unnoticed in the mainstream media, in which CFR’s Richard Stengel forwarded the notion that governments “have to” direct “propaganda” at their own domestic populations.
The Council is recognized as one of the United States’ oldest and most establishment think tanks of the American power-elite, and it often sets the agenda on important policy questions—or, as former senior editor at the Washington Post, Richard Harwood, in a column entitled “Ruling Class Journalists,” approvingly described the Council as, “the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States.”
Harwood admiringly wrote:
Communist China’s re-education camps use “forced medication” to alter the minds of prisoners… sounds a lot like America, doesn’t it?
by Lance D Johnson, The Common Sense Show:
The Chinese Communist Party in Xinjiang is a ruthless thought-control police state that arrests, imprisons, abuses, and forcibly medicates religious and political dissidents. Agents of the Chinese government are “cleansing” Xinjiang of “extremist” beliefs. Police arrest Christians, Muslims, and other minorities that threaten the communist order. The Uyghur and Kazakh ethnic groups are targeted the most and the abuse of Christians is growing. The innocent are taken to “training camps” so they can be forcibly medicated until they denounce their previous beliefs and commit their loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party.
These inhumane places are called “political training centers” or “reformation centers.” The Chinese government has a quota to fill. Police must aggressively target and arrest innocent people to satiate the demands of the communist state. The police are instructed to arrest people based on their appearance, whether they are in contact with anyone in neighboring Kazakhstan, or if they are suspected to be involved in religious activities. Sometimes visitors from Kazakhstan are arrested and separated from their families.
