Snowden Warns US’ Push to Scrap Encryption All ‘About Power’ Rather Than Public Safety

from Sputnik News:

Former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden has been in self-imposed exile in Russia since 2013, when he leaked a trove of top-secret information from the NSA regarding global surveillance programs conducted by Washington, in a move that has sparked widespread concerns over personal privacy.

In his op-ed for The Guardian, US whistleblower Edward Snowden specifically focused on the repercussions of alleged plans by the US, Britain and Australia to make Facebook create a backdoor into the social network’s encrypted messaging apps that he warned may allow governments to obtain “unlimited” access to private communications.

by Daniel Taylor, via InfoWars:

Warns about superpowers operating outside of law in Third World countries

A doctor from Peru claims that recent advancements in brain chip technology could be due to “secret, forced, and illicit human experimentation” by a consortium of transnational tech companies and governments operating outside of the law.

A 2016 paper published in the Egyptian Journal of Internal Medicine warned that “secret, forced, and illicit human experimentation” could be happening in Latin America, where poverty-stricken masses are routinely recruited for medical trials.

San Francisco Shaken By Dozens Of Earthquakes – Is A Major Seismic Event Coming?

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Seismic activity in California appears to be heating up again.  Could it be possible that the swarm of earthquakes that has hit San Francisco over the past couple of days is a precursor to a larger seismic event?  The California coastline sits directly along the infamous “Ring of Fire”, and scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” hits the state.  Of course most of the time when we talk about “the Big One”, most people immediately envision a geography-altering earthquake in southern California, and we have been warned repeatedly that such an event is coming someday.  However, northern California is quite vulnerable as well, and a repeat of the horrific 1906 San Francisco earthquake is definitely not out of the question.  Today, the real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area is some of the priciest in the entire nation, but much of that real estate could potentially be reduced to rubble in just a matter of moments.  Millions of Californians are literally living on a ticking time bomb, and at some point time will run out.

The Elite Machine Behind Greta Thunberg

from Vigilant Citizen:

A look at the powerful, elite-backed machine behind Greta Thunberg and the true agenda behind her world tour.

In the matter of a few months, Greta Thunberg went from a lone girl protesting in front of the Swedish parliament to an international phenomenon. Although mass media is making it seem as if this meteoric rise to prominence happened organically, this is simply not true.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The Affordable Care Act continues to be anything but affordable.

In fact, the healthcare system in the US is in terrible financial shape.

The Syrian Debacle Is Actually Well Planned Chaos

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

For many years now I have focused a considerable amount of analysis on the subject of Syria, with an emphasis on the country’s importance to the global elites as a kind of geopolitical detonator; the first domino in a chain of dominoes that could lead to a war involving international powers. I believe this war will develop on multiple fronts, most importantly on the economic front, but it could very well turn into a shooting war involving numerous actors.

Syria is so important, in fact, that the establishment has been careful to smother all discussion about what is really going on there in a fog of propaganda. And make no mistake, BOTH Republicans and Democrats as well as eastern and western governments are participating in the lies and misdirection.  Obviously, the first and most important lie is a multi-sided one, and we can’t continue forward until it’s dissected – I am speaking of the lie of US involvement in the region.

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

Says it’s harder for black women to lose weight because of racism.

During a television appearance, a New Jersey gender studies professor claimed that Donald Trump’s policies were to blame for black female obesity.

“I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create,” said Brittney Cooper during a discussion on ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation’, which is broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

William Barr Wants to Kill Privacy and Security ‘For the Children’

0

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

U.S. Attorney General William Barr, along with co-conspirators in the UK and Australia, recently wrote a letter to Mark Zuckerberg requesting he not move forward with a plan to implement end-to-end encryption across Facebook’s messaging services. A draft of the letter was published earlier this month by Buzzfeed, and it’s worth examining in some detail.

What immediately strikes you is the letter’s emphasis on “protecting the children,” a talking point universally used by authoritarians throughout history to justify both a reduction of public liberty and a transfer of increased power to the state. Though this tactic is transparent and well understood by those paying attention, it’s nevertheless disturbing to observe Barr’s disingenuous and shameless use of it (the words ‘child’ and ‘children’ appear 17 times in the course of this brief letter).

Sales of the U.S. Constitution have hit a record high under President Trump

by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:

Sales of the U.S. Constitution have hit a record high under President Trump, jumping 60% since he moved into the West Wing.

The NPD Group, responsible for the national count called BookScan, said that sales of the Founding Fathers’ roadmap to democracy are about three times higher than they were under former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

Since Trump became the GOP front-runner in the 2016 presidential election, sales have jumped, said NPD. Some 275,000 copies were sold that year, “which is the greatest number of print edition sales of the U.S. Constitution sold since NPD BookScan began tracking U.S. book sales in 2004,” said the group.
