THE OMNIPRESENT SURVEILLANCE STATE: ORWELL’S FUTURE IS OUR PRESENT REALITY

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The Orwellian dystopia of thought control and an omnipresent surveillance state has become our reality.  George Orwell’s book 1984, although meant as fiction, has turned out to be an incredible prediction of our future.

The “land of the free” hasn’t been free since shortly after the American Revolution and it’s getting more authoritarian by the day. It’s been 70 years since Orwell (dying, beset by fever and bloody coughing fits, and driven to warn against the rise of a society in which rampant abuse of power and mass manipulation are the norm) depicted the ominous rise of ubiquitous technology, fascism, and totalitarianism in 1984.

Cops Refused to Fulfill City’s Illegal Ticket Quota, So City Council Fired Entire Department

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A police department told city officials they were tired of extorting citizens by being forced to write tickets, so city officials fired all of them.

Ridgetop, TN — The town of Ridgetop, Tenn. made a rather substantial move this week in an attempt to save money, so they dissolved the entire police department. The decision to fire all the cops happened on Monday night, and yet the town has not yet descended into utter chaos. Imagine that.

US Attacks Russia’s Power Grid; Trump Kept in Dark

from The Anti Media:

The New York Times is reporting that the United States is cyber attacking Russia’s electric power grid and other targets—and that President Donald Trump is being kept out of the loop.

“The American strategy has shifted more toward offense, officials say, with the placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before.”

Trump has not been briefed on the operation because of “the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials.”

Will A False Flag Iran War Cause A Financial Crisis?

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

Just a couple of weeks ago the financial world’s biggest worry was the plunging price of oil. Supply was up, stockpiles were building and speculation was pointing towards $40 a barrel, a price at which the fracking/shale oil “miracle” would evaporate. A trillion dollars of related junk debt would default, taking a big part of the leveraged speculating community along for the ride.

Then it all changed. Someone attacked some ships and oil infrastructure in the Middle East, the US and Saudi Arabia accused Iran, and now the fear is that a major regional war will interrupt the flow of oil, sending its price way up and causing a financial crisis at least as severe as a shale oil debt collapse.

The Rise of Facial Recognition Should Scare Us All

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

In the last ten years, our world has been completely transformed thanks to the exponential growth of digital technology. Technological advances with computer processors and the Internet have quickly advanced our world into one that resembles some of the most well-known sci-fi films and novels. Not a single day passes without a report on an emerging technology or new feature in an already existing product. The last ten years alone have seen rapid growth in information technology, encryption, the medical industry and 3D printing technology, just to name a few.

The Danger of Leaving a President Out of the Loop

by Caitlin Johnstone, Consortium News:

Donald Trump was kept in the dark about a possible U.S. nuclear response to a Russian cyber-weapon attack. The U.S. has now ramped up offensive cyber-warfare against Russia’s power grid, putting Trump in a deep bind, says Caitlin Johnstone.

The New York Times has published an anonymously sourced report titled “U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia’s Power Grid” about the “placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before” which could potentially “plunge Russia into darkness or cripple its military,” with one anonymous official reporting that “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”

Provocations in the Gulf of Oman: Will John Bolton Get His War on Iran?

by Michael Welch, Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Pepe Escobar, and Yves Engler, Global Research:

“America’s declared policy should be ending Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution before its 40th anniversary…Recognizing a new Iranian regime in 2019 would reverse the shame of once seeing our diplomats held hostage for 444 days.” – John Bolton (January 15, 2018) [1]

LISTEN TO THE SHOW 

If Trump’s On your Side, Then Why Is This One Law Still on the Books?

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”

THOMAS JEFFERSON

 

We have Ebola crossing our border and our people do nothing about it. We have states that are providing free health care for illegal aliens while American citizens are dying because of the lack of affordability of health care and we do nothing about it. We have entire drug cartel and terrorist elements entering our country, and yet, we do nothing about it. And now, Trump is also doing nothing about it.

Africans coming across southern border have ‘rolls of $100 bills’

from Government Slaves:

The “poor huddled masses” coming across the southern border may not be so poor after all.

Swiss journalist Urs Gehriger recently visited African migrants who breached the border and hung out on the streets of San Antonio, Texas, waiting to go elsewhere in the country, and he met hostility from people who didn’t want to share details about their experiences, conflicted each other, and had rolls of $100 bills.

In a recording played on Fox News, Gehriger asks a migrant from Congo how she got to America.

She refused to say.

DOJ Admits FBI Never Saw Crowdstrike Report on DNC Russian Hacking Claim…

from The Conservative Treehouse:

The foundation for the Russian election interference narrative is built on the claim of Russians hacking the servers of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and subsequently releasing damaging emails that showed the DNC worked to help Hillary Clinton and eliminate Bernie Sanders.

Despite the Russian ‘hacking’ claim the DOJ previously admitted the DNC would not let FBI investigators review the DNC server.  Instead the DNC provided the FBI with analysis of a technical review done through a cyber-security contract with Crowdstrike.
