A “bombshell” new report from The Wall Street Journal describes a secret project from Google and healthcare giant Ascension to store data on millions of Americans, a move that critics of the tech conglomerate decried as another example of overreach.
“When will someone go to jail?” wondered mathematician and musician David C. Lowery. “That would stop this shit real fast.”

“Bolivian President Evo Morales steps down following accusations of election fraud” proclaims CNN.
“Bolivia’s Morales resigns amid scathing election report, rising protests” reports The Washington Post.
by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:
As long as central banks create and distribute trillions in conscience-free credit to conscience-free financiers and corporations, the incentives for sociopathy only increase.
“Sociopath” is a word we now encounter regularly in the mainstream media, but what does it mean? Here is a list of 16 traits, many of which are visible in lionized corporate and political leaders and entrepreneurs.
One key trait is a lack of moral responsibility or conscience; the sociopath feels no remorse if he/she takes advantage of people or exploits them.
from Humans Are Free:
It’s not clear whether Facebook was truly conceived by an innocent genius with noble intent, but one fact has become abundantly clear: Facebook is now a mouthpiece and tool for the proliferation of mainstream perception.
This is specifically designed to enrich the global elite and continue to disenfranchise ordinary citizens and any attempts to bring important truths to light that would threaten the elite. And, of course, Mark Zuckerberg is now a ‘junior partner’ in this global elite.
The episode of the Jimmy Dore show found in the video below, which is worth watching to get the full context of the discussion, introduces whistleblower Vikram Kumar, a former promoter of third-party videos on Facebook. Dore brings interesting insights into Facebook’s latest strategies in terms of controlling the news commentary.

- The Facts:Nearly two decades ago, Gary Mckinnon of the UK accesses nearly 100 NASA and Department of Defence, including the US Air Force Space command. He faced extradition for 10 years after finding a picture of a UFO and a list of “non terrestrial officers.”
- Reflect On:How sheltered are we from certain information? Has ‘national security’ simply become an excuse to keep information concealed from the public to protect corporate and government interests?
The field of UFOlogy has long been muddled with disinformation campaigns and bad journalism, and sometimes this journalism includes infiltration efforts by intelligence agencies themselves. This is clear given the fact that intelligence agencies have a direct relationship with journalists and mainstream media outlets, as there are declassified documents showing so.
by Corey Lynn, Corey’s Digs:
I recently did a report on children’s books in schools and how the so-called education system is indoctrinating children and filling their minds with false agendas, one-sided views, trying to break family units, and fear mongering. I proposed some suggestions at the end of the article, then took to twitter to see what “solutions” parents might have. It received an enormous amount of suggestions, from removing it from Federal control and putting it under the States, to disbanding teachers unions, and parents communicating more with their children and getting involved with the schools. The most widely suggested idea was to homeschool.
FAKE SCIENCE for COPS: Alcohol level breathalyzers based on sham science, shocking investigation discovers
by Vicki Batts, The Common Sense Show:
Breathalyzer test results have long been considered a lynch pin of the criminal justice system. About a million people are arrested every year for drunk driving in the United States — but a shocking investigation has revealed that many of these arrests were likely made in vain. As it turns out, breathalyzer testing is based on sham science, and most often, the results they produce are inaccurate. These devices can be found at just about every police station in the United States, and are commonly used during road-side traffic stops.
