GOOGLE STRUGGLES TO CONTAIN EMPLOYEE UPROAR OVER CHINA CENSORSHIP PLANS

by Ryan Gallagher, The Intercept:

GOOGLE BOSSES WERE scrambling to contain leaks and internal anger on Wednesday after the company’s confidential plan to launch a censored version of its search engine in China was revealed by The Intercept.

Just a few hundred of Google’s massive 88,000-strong workforce had been briefed on the project prior to the revelations, which triggered a wave of disquiet that spread through the internet giant’s offices across the world.

Company managers responded by swiftly trying to shut down employees’ access to any documents that contained information about the China censorship project, according to Google insiders who witnessed the backlash.

Entire Volume of CIA Files On Lee Harvey Oswald, Set to Be Released in October, Has ‘Gone Missing’

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:

Volume 5 of the CIA’s Lee Harvey Oswald 7-volume collection, may never be turned over, even though the law requires it to take place by October 26th of this year.

Countless concerned individuals are still searching for answers surrounding the mysterious death of the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The official narrative, that a lone former Marine named Harvey Oswald assassinated him, is widely disputed.

All available documents from all government entities are required by the Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 to be released on October 26th of 2017. But if history repeats itself, the Central Intelligence Agency may not release an entire volume of documents on Oswald, known as “volume 5.”

As Sputnik reports, the release in July of 3,810 CIA and FBI documents on the assassination by the Assassination Records Review Board threw up a number of revelations that JFK researchers have hungrily devoured and enthusiastically publicized. For instance, the mayor of Dallas at the time of Kennedy’s assassination, Earle Cabell, was a CIA asset in the 1950s, and his brother, Charles Cabell, a high-ranking CIA official until 1962.

The release in October has been highly anticipated by those seeking answers. However, thanks to a deliberate fudging or records, or a conveniently timed clerical error, an entire volume may never see the light of day.

Inside Langley Air Force Base’s CIA Headquarters is an office known as the Office of Security. The Office of Security maintains its own top-secret archives known as the Office of Security Archival Holdings and is a separate archive from the agency’s more frequently used facility located in Alexandria, VA known as the Agency Archival Record Center.

As late as 1977, the entire 7-volume collection of documents was intact, having been checked out by Russ Holmes in the Office of General Counsel and noted the 7-volume series was all together, not missing any volumes. But when the CIA was asked to turn over the volume of documents on Oswald, the hitman in the assassination, it seems the agency stonewalled a bit, like a shell game according to independent investigator Malcolm Blunt.

Blunt described the stonewalling:

This huge search by CIA did not surface Oswald’s security files and the Assassination Records Review Board (AARB) remained uninformed about their existence. Not until 1997 when an ARRB staffer stumbled across evidence that two previous congressional investigations had access to these files did CIA “discover” them.

The AARB eventually received the 7-volume set of documents on Oswald in 1998, but staffers quickly realized there was one volume missing—volume 5.

An agency explanation was offered that volume 5 could have been consolidated into Volume 4, or Volume 6 for example. Eventually, the agency concluded, according to Blunt, Volume 5 of Oswald’s Security file may never have existed.

So far, 2017 has been a year of anticipation for JFK conspiracy theorists as they await the release of all files surrounding the assassination of one of the country’s most beloved presidents. One group, known as the Citizens Against Political Assassinations, is chomping at the bits to get to volume 5 and others. They believe the official government narrative is full of holes and needs to be investigated.

Experts Warn Civil Rights Fallout from COVID Could be Far Worse Than the Pandemic Itself

by Raul Diego, MintPress News:

As President Biden signs a national mask mandate into law, measures being imposed in the name of protecting public health could create a humanitarian crisis that sees Americans sued by the state and forced into detention camps for breaking pandemic protocols.

The very first executive order Joe Biden signed upon becoming the forty-sixth President of the United States was the national mask mandate he promised at the Democratic National Convention back in August. The order makes face coverings and social distancing mandatory on all federal property and a legal requisite for interstate commerce. The move signals a clear intent on the part of his administration to double down on the “authoritarian” emergency measures – as described in a recent paper from Oxford University – implemented in the wake of the pandemic crisis and sets the stage for what may be the greatest threat to human rights and civil liberties the world has ever known.

MINISTRY OF TRUTH: 12 state attorneys general demand Big Tech platforms eliminate all speech from people injured by vaccines

by Lance D Johnson, Natural News:

Attorney generals from twelve states are calling on the world’s top social media networks to completely eradicate any negative claim about covid-19 vaccines. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey have already implemented “misinformation” policies that remove any dissent against government lock downs, mandatory masks, and Big Pharma’s forceful vaccine push. However, the new covid vaccines are so faulty and unsafe, vaccine injury and death claims are still spreading across social media.

After being noticeably censored on their own pages for sharing vaccine truths, Facebook users have flocked to Facebook groups to talk about the covid-19 vaccine side effects. One of these groups reported tens of thousands of personal testimonies about the harms of these vaccines. This group consisted of more than 120,000 people and was growing by 10,000 people every week as vaccine injury reports poured in. The group has since been removed by Facebook, as The Ministry of Truth rewrites history and covers up its crimes.

The Twisted Political Considerations That Are Going To Extend The Lockdowns And Deepen This Economic Depression

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

For better or worse, COVID-19 has become the most important political issue of the 2020 election.  And it is very unfortunate that this pandemic has erupted in an election year, because for many of our politicians finger pointing has become much more important than finding solutions.  In particular, Democrats seem quite eager to exploit any stumbles by President Trump, and many on the left are absolutely thrilled that Joe Biden’s poll numbers have improved over the past couple of weeks.  But if this pandemic rapidly subsides over the next few months and the economy dramatically improves by November, that could potentially be enough to put Trump over the top.  The stakes are incredibly high for both sides, many regard this upcoming election as the most important in modern American history, and no quarter will be given as operatives from both parties seek any advantage that they can possibly get.

Fox News turns against independent media, praises NewsGuard which has given them a green rating

by JD Heyes, DC Clothesline:

Many independent media journalists wondered how long it would take the sons of NewsCorps founder Rupert Murdoch to ruin Fox News for conservative viewers once they gained full control over the company, and that process appears to be advancing as expected.

Fox News technology contributor Kurt “The Cyberguy” Knutsson appeared on the network’s morning show Monday, “Fox & Friends,” to sing the praises of a new censorship tool being employed by Microsoft. 

US Battled World War II Nazis, Today US Side-by-side Ukraine Nazis

by Renee Parsons, Global Research:

In late February, much of the American public had little understanding about Russia’s “special military operation” (smo) that focused on the “denazification” of Ukraine.  Despite opinion polls confirming the media as a lying, scheming venture, Americans foolishly invest their myopic trust as it continues to build disinformation upon hogwash until an unsuspecting citizenry can no longer discern the most basic facts from fiction.  The unacceptable expansion of NATO on Russia’s border as an instrument of US foreign policy has been a thorn in Russia’s side since the default of its 1990 promise to Gorbachev.  

Google’s Jigsaw proposes real-time, cross-platform monitoring of “hate clusters” to “disrupt their reach”

by Tom Parker, Reclaim The Net:

Google’s researchers aren’t happy that users are migrating to platforms that don’t censor “misinformation.”

As Big Tech platforms have increased their censorship of so-called “hate speech” and “COVID-19 misinformation,” platforms such as free speech social network Gab and the messaging app Telegram have seen a surge in new users.

Now, a new post from Google’s Jigsaw unit, which “explores threats to open societies and builds technology that inspires scalable solutions”, is recommending that users of these platforms should be surveilled across platforms in real-time, so that they can be more easily be blocked from sharing links to “harmful content.”

Study Finds Some Governments Already Using Contact Tracing Apps For Mass Surveillance

by John Vibes, Activist Post:

For months, privacy experts like Edward Snowden were warning about governments using virus contact tracing phone apps to conduct mass surveillance on citizen populations. As most of us know, governments are already spying on domestic citizens, but if they have access to data from the contact tracing apps, it gives them yet another tool that helps to give them a clearer picture of everyone’s day-to-day activities.

The human rights group Amnesty International conducted a study analyzing COVID-19 contact tracing apps and found that applications for at least three countries — Norway, Bahrain, and Kuwait — had dangerous security flaws. The researchers looked at many of the popular contact tracing apps from 11 different countries: Algeria, Bahrain, France, Iceland, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Norway, Qatar, Tunisia, and United Arab Emirates.

Arrest of Gov’t Critic and Journalist Max Blumenthal Signals Escalation in War on Alternative Media

by Alan Macleod, The Unz Review:

The SWAT-style raid on the home of government critic and journalist Max Blumenthal signals a new level of escalation in the US government’s war on dissent.

Max Blumenthal, the editor of independent media outlet The Grayzone, was secretly arrested on October 25 in a “SWAT-style” morning raid on his Washington D.C. home. He was held in D.C. Central Detention Facility for two days incommunicado, without the ability to communicate to the outside world, having been refused a phone call. He claims to have been shackled by his hands and ankles for some time and kept in a series of cages and cells. Blumenthal was arrested on a five-month-old assault charge stemming from an incident that took place during the D.C. Venezuelan Embassy siege.

Ottawa Police On Horseback Trample Peaceful Protesters, Accuse Victims of Exhibiting ‘Assaultive Behaviour’

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Disturbing video out of Ottawa on Friday shows police on horseback trampling a man and a woman with a walker.

Canada’s ‘Freedom convoy’ protests have continued to rage on amid extremist opposition by actors in the government. Moves by Justin Trudeau to criminalize the demonstrators overnight via emergency powers have remained highly controversial; so much so that even the allegedly left-leaning Canadian Civil Liberties Association publicly condemned the Canadian prime minister for the unprecedented move.
