by John Vibes, via Activist Post:

Marianna, FL – Earlier this month, Jackson County Deputy Zachary Wester was fired after an investigation revealed that he planted drugs on multiple suspects. Now, prosecutors are dropping a least two dozen different cases he was involved with after his own body camera showed him framing innocent people.

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

It’s always about control.

From The Detroit NewsA resolution introduced in Wayne County seeks to encourage state and federal legislators to regulate and limit ammunition sales.

Outgoing District 6 Commissioner Reggie “Reg” Davis submitted the resolution to the commission’s chair, Gary Woronchak, to encourage Michigan and U.S. leaders to adopt policies to end gun violence. If the commission does that, Davis said, he plans to seek passage of an ordinance to adopt the policies for which his resolution calls.

“In Detroit, it’s the wild, wild west,” Davis, a Democrat, told The Detroit News in a phone interview. “I want to stop turning on the TV every day seeing a younger version of myself at a gas station or a Coney Island, seeing these kids kill each other. We need some sort of control.

CHINA ROLLING OUT ‘SOCIAL CREDIT’ SYSTEM THAT MAKES THEM THE FIRST NATION IN THE WORLD TO IMPLEMENT A TRUE 1984-STYLE GOVERNMENT

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

China’s chilling new social credit system will implement the world’s first digital dictatorship where the people are ruled by algorithm, and it’s already begun
News coming out today about the chilling, no, make that terrifying new way that China will commandeer and control their people by 2020 is enough to make you a believer in conspiracy theory. They are calling it the ‘social credit system’ and it starts with assigning you a credit score related to how well you manage your finances, and then continues on to ‘rate you’ on every aspect of your life including how loyal you are to the government.

Google Staff Discussed Search “Tweak” To Bias Trump Travel Ban Results

from ZeroHedge:

The notion that Google’s search algorithm is biased (explicitly or implicitly) against conservative voices and media outlets is nothing new. President Trump slammed Google for this tendency over the summer when he tweeted a screen shot of the results from a search using the terms “Trump news”…

Life Insurance Company Will Add Fitness Tracking Data to ALL Policies Next Year

by Nicholas West, Activist Post:

One of America’s oldest insurance companies, John Hancock, has its eyes set firmly on the future. With the arrival of Big Data and the now never-ending stream of information that is available to data brokers on individuals in nearly real time, the lure of using it for customer analytics and behavior modification has become irresistible.

According to a recent announcement cited by Reuters, the company is taking the unprecedented step of “selling only interactive policies that track fitness and health data through wearable devices and smartphones.” Previously, John Hancock created its interactive policies as a supplement to traditional life insurance, but now the “Vitality” program will encompass ALL policies beginning in 2019, as well as converting old policies to the new model.

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.

Google has locked down access to archived recordings of its weekly all-hands “TGIF” meetings after Breitbart News published a video of the company’s dismayed reaction to the defeat of Hillary Clinton.

New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen recently sat down with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for a wide-ranging interview which was published on Recode.

On the censorship of Michael Hoffman’s books by Amazon

from The Saker:

A couple of months ago I did an interview with one of the foremost scholars of rabbinical Judaism, Michael Hoffman. The occasion was the release of his latest book “The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome”. At the time I did not expect to have to ask for a follow-up interview with him, but when I learned that Amazon had censored his books (please see Hoffman’s own account of this here). Specifically, the ban is on three of his books. A complete ban (Kindle + printed book) on Judaism’s Strange Gods: Revised and Expanded, as well as The Great Holocaust Trial: Revised and Expanded, while his textbook, Judaism Discovered, has been removed from the Kindle. I felt that I had to talk to him again and he kindly agreed to reply to my questions. I submit to you the full text of our Q&A which I will follow-up with a short commentary.

DORSEY ADMITS ON TAPE: Twitter is so liberal that its conservative employees ‘Don’t Feel Safe’

0

from True Pundit:

Twitter is so liberal, in fact, that conservative employees “don’t feel safe to express their opinions” within the company, Jack Dorsey told NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen in a new interview published today on Recode Media.

“We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don’t feel safe to express their opinions at the company,” Dorsey said. “They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don’t think that’s fair or right.”

Dorsey also explained why he brought up Twitter’s left-leaning employee bias to begin with.

Facebook Will Begin Fact Checking Videos And Pictures

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

Facebook will begin fact-checking photographs and videos posted on its platform that are misleading or controversial, WSJ reported.

The company stated Thursday it will begin using technology and human reviewers to stop the spread of “misinformation in these new visual formats.” Previously, the company’s efforts have been focused on rooting out false articles and links.

“The same false claim can appear as an article headline, as text over a photo or as audio in the background of a video,” Facebook product manager Tessa Lyons said in the statement. “In order to fight misinformation, we have to be able to fact-check it across all of these different content types.”
