Billboards are using sensors to identify, target and track individuals

from Govt Slaves:

I can’t believe this has to be said (again), but cyberpunk was meant as a warning, not a business plan.

It turns out that you need very few identifiers to make a guess about who a person standing in front of a billboard is, especially when you can suck data out of their phones. Throw in data about how long you stand in front of a billboard and you’ve got metrics that advertisers can use to tune their campaigns.

A year ago, researchers at Exodus Privacy identified dozens of trackers on smartphone apps that had collected massive amounts of information to better target advertising. Yale Privacy Lab replicated many of Exodus Privacy’s findings. Among the app researchers identified as having Cuebiq’s code signature was iHeartRadio, which is owned by Clear Channel.

NEW Body Cam Footage – Cops Shoot Unarmed Man Holding Cell Phone

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Patents recently issued to Google provide a window into their development activities. While it’s no guarantee of a future product, it is a sure indication of what’s of interest to them. What we’ve given up in privacy to Google, Facebook, and others thus far is minuscule compared to what is coming if these companies get their way.

Google is leading the way in the exciting, new ‘smart home’ available to inhabitants of the 21st century. Their to desire is to make your home ‘smart’, as opposed to the dumb homes we have all been living in. Just how ‘smart’ do they plan on going? So smart that only a true idiot would want to live in the type of home their draconian product lineup is offering.

Totalitarianism: China will keep ‘social credit’ score on each citizen for reward/punishment

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

Bloomberg reports, Nov. 21, 2018, that the Chinese Communist government is on course with a program to track and rate the behavior of each of its 1.3 billion people and assign social credits or points that will be used to reward or punish. The program will be implemented in two years, by the end of 2020.

According to the plan, various agencies, including tourism bodies, business regulators and transit authorities, will link their databases to get a detailed picture of every resident’s interactions across a swathe of services.

NINE HUMAN RIGHTS and civil liberties organizations sent a letter to the U.S. Justice Department today objecting to a potential agreement between the United States and the United Kingdom that would give British law enforcement broad access to data held by U.S. technology companies.

The possible agreement stems from the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act, or CLOUD Act, for which Justice Department officials have lobbied since 2016 and which President Donald Trump signed into law in March.

WATCH: Jesse Kelly Responds To Twitter Permanently Banning Him From Platform

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

Radio host Jesse Kelly said on Monday night that Twitter still has not given him any explanation on why they permanently banned his account and that they won’t even allow him to appeal their decision.

“Why did Twitter take you off its platform?” Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked.

“Nobody knows. Twitter kicked me off the platform because I was a mainstream voice on the Right that spoke the truth,” the two-time congressional candidate and war veteran told Carlson. “They’ve given me no explanation — as they told Congress they would give explanations. All they sent was an email that said, ‘You are permanently banned and you can’t appeal it for repeated rules violations.'”

Major Psy-Op in Europe Exposed: UK Government Tramples on Values It Vowed to Protect

by Alex Gorka, Strategic Culture:

Those who have been saying that the West has turned Russia into a scapegoat to be blamed for each and every thing that goes wrong have been proved right. We have witnessed concocted stories invented to denigrate Moscow that have gone viral as directed by the secret services. The UK, the country that is spearheading the anti-Russian information campaign, offers a good example that illustrates how this is being done.

Police Beat a Woman for Selling Flowers With No Permit – Taxpayers To Be Held Liable (Video)

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Perris, CA — In the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice. A video published to Facebook backs up this notion, showing a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department deputy assault a woman who was selling flowers on the side of the road — because she apparently failed to pay the State for the privilege. Now, because the deputy’s actions were so egregious, the taxpayers are going to be held liable.


from WND:

A prominent columnist, lawyer and political analyst contends the European Court of Human Rights has surrendered to Islam.

Judith Bergman, senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, wrote that Islamic blasphemy laws “have now been elevated to the law of the land in Europe.”

She cited the case of anti-jihad activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who was convicted by an Austrian court of “denigrating religious symbols of a recognized religious group” after she described Islam’s prophet Muhammad as a pedophile for marrying a 6-year-old and consummating the relationship when the girl was 9.

Gargantuan Orwellian Censorship On An Industrial Scale Shows How Deeply Down The Rabbit Hole America Has Fallen

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

With 2018 rapidly coming to a close and one of the top censored stories of the year being the online censorship of not only Conservatives and the independent media but the anti-war left as well, we’d like to begin this story by giving a huge thank you to everybody who has helped ANP remain in this war for the future of America. By reading and sharing our stories and via your incredibly timely donations, you’ve helped us to continue this truly existential battle for America’s future for another year. And despite all of the problems our nation is going through, we as Americans truly have so much to be thankful for. Thank you all.

And while many on both the left and the right complain about the country we live in and the direction we’re headed for many legitimate (and illegitimate) reasons, ANP still being here in November of 2018 going into 2019 is absolute proof that ‘freedom of the press‘ is still alive in America, despite what CNN and the totally controlled mainstream media would like us to believe.

U.S. Silently Passes And Signs Bill To Create New Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency


by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

A bill silently passed through Congress and to U.S. President Donald Trump’s desk that was signed right before Thanksgiving last week, which would re-designate the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) into a new agency called the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA.)
