Wikileaks: Israel Using AI to Monitor ‘All Posts’ On Facebook & Twitter for ‘Antisemitism’ to Report to Law Enforcement

0

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Wikileaks shared an Orwellian video over the weekend featuring Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett discussing how the Israeli government is monitoring “all posts” on Facebook and Twitter for “antisemitism” to report to “law enforcement” and “intelligence” agencies in “certain” European countries.

More fake hurricane-weather news

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

This morning, FOTM‘s DCG posted a video showing how the Weather Channel broadcasts fake news about Hurricane Florence by exaggerating how strong the wind is.

A reporter pretended to be unsteady on his feet, buffeted by the supposed strong wind. Alas, the video camera showed that right behind the reporter were two people casually strolling by.

It’s the Anniversary of the Book that Changed the World — 3 Ways 1984 has Become Reality

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:

Assessing current conditions in the United States, it would be next to impossible not to grasp innumerable parallels to George Orwell’s dystopic portent, 1984. Though other fictional dystopias could similarly elicit comparisons to the dark turn taken by American empire, aspects of 1984’s creepy authoritarian nightmare ring all-too-true.

And Big Brother-like surveillance — though undoubtedly relevant — imparts only the most obvious, and therefore least pertinent, connection on the list.

Bone Chilling Footage Shows the Horrific Tyranny Google is Now Secretly Fostering in China

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Based on the history of how China treats its dissidents, Google could soon be complicit in the state-sponsored torture and murder of people for their political and religous views.

Last week, it was reported that a senior scientist at Google, Jack Poulson did the right thing and resigned from his high-paying job over his employer’s decision to support censorship in China. “I am forced to resign in order to avoid contributing to, or profiting from, the erosion of protection for dissidents,” he said.

The senior scientist blew the whistle last month after the Intercept revealed through leaked documents that the internet behemoth planned to launch a censored version of its search engine in Chine that will blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.

from The Mind Unleashed:

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has announced that they will continue their fight in the losing battle of cannabis prohibition by banning Canadian cannabis users and workers from entering the United States.

Customs official Todd Owen told Politico that they will interrogate Canadian citizens that they suspect of using cannabis, and anyone who says yes, or lies, will be banned from the US for life. Additionally, anyone working in the legal cannabis industry will be labeled as a drug trafficker by the agency, even if they aren’t in possession of cannabis when they cross the border.

Suspending the Constitution: In America Today, the Government Does Whatever It Wants

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”—Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document.

The reality we must come to terms with, however, is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

by Dr Mercola, The Daily Sheeple:

Factory farmed chicken has been identified as the food responsible for the greatest number of foodborne illnesses, thanks to the presence of pathogenic bacteria, many of which are resistant to antibiotics. Now, testing reveals chicken and other meats may also contain drugs that are banned for use in food animals.

As reported by Consumer Reports,1 drugs such as ketamine, phenylbutazone and chloramphenicol are all found in the U.S. meat supply.

Netherlands prosecutes its own citizen for calling Turkish dictator a “Goat F*cker”

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

It was mid-September in 1683, almost 335 years ago to the day. Turkish forces of the Ottoman Empire surrounded Vienna, one of the most strategic cities in Europe at the time.

Controlling Vienna meant controlling the Danube River, which flows from Western Germany to the Black Sea, providing critical access for the Ottomans to invade the rest of Europe.

So if Vienna fell, Europe would soon follow.

Former Vice-President Joe Biden: Trump Supporters Are The ‘Dregs Of Society’

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Former vice president Joe Biden is going on an insult tour, calling supporters of President Donald Trump the “dregs of society.” In a not-so-classy move, Biden used a pro-LGBT Human Rights Campaign annual dinner on Saturday to rip supporters of Trump and the president.

According to the Daily Wire, Biden’s little moment was reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s when she called Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables.”  “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said in September 2016. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”

New Report: Artificial Intelligence Will Handle 52% Of Current Work Tasks By 2025

by Mac Slavo, via Activist Post:

A new World Economic Forum study has concluded that robots and artificial intelligence will handle about 52% of current work tasks by the year 2025.  That’s almost twice as many as they already currently handle.

Although AI is expected to generate about 58 million jobs, it will also decimate the middle class, according to the Internet of Business. The WEF report, The Future of Jobs 2018, predicts that 75 million jobs will be displaced by AI, robotics, and automation, but suggests that 133 million new jobs may be created as organizations attempt to shift the balance between human workers and machines: a net gain of 58 million jobs.  But they also predict that this shift will be a bloodbath for the already hard-hit middle class.
