Snowden Designs a Device to Warn if Your iPhone’s Radios Are Snitching
Source: Wired Submitted: 07/22/2016
--You might think you can achieve the same effect by simply turning your iPhone off with its power button, or placing it in a Faraday bag designed to block all radio signals. But Faraday bags can still leak radio information, Huang says, and clever malware can make an iPhone appear to be switched off when it’s not, as Snowden warned in an NBC interview in 2014. Regardless, Huang says their intention was to allow reporters to reliably disable a phone’s radio signals while still using the device’s other functions, like taking notes and photographs or recording audio and video.  Read full article »

--Let’s presume that at some future time we have all the technological pieces in place. When you’re close to death we scan your details and fire up your simulation. Something wakes up with the same memories and personality as you. It finds itself in a familiar world. The rendering is not perfect, but it’s pretty good. Odors probably don’t work quite the same. The fine-grained details are missing. You live in a simulated New York City with crowds of fellow dead people but no rats or dirt. Or maybe you live in a rural setting where the grass feels like Astroturf. Or you live on the beach in the sun, and every year an upgrade makes the ocean spray seem a little less fake. There’s no disease. No aging. No injury. No death unless the operating system crashes. You can interact with the world of the living the same way you do now, on a smart phone or by email. You stay in touch with living friends and family, follow the latest elections, watch the summer blockbusters. Maybe you still have a job in the real world as a lecturer or a board director or a comedy writer. It’s like you’ve gone to another universe but still have contact with the old one.

But is it you? Did you cheat death, or merely replace yourself with a creepy copy?

The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t
Source: Corbett Report Submitted: 07/14/2016
--Firstly, the app requires an excessive amount of permissions on a user’s device, including the ability to read your contacts, find accounts on your device, and access your camera. The app even requires full access to a user’s Google account, which it can then use to read your emails, send emails from your account, browse your Google Drive documents and photos, etc. But apparently that’s just “a mistake” and will be “corrected soon.”

Secondly, the game’s privacy policy contains such gems as: “We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties.” What could go wrong?

But wait, it gets worse!

pokemonciaThe maker of the app? Niantic Labs. Never heard of them? That’s because until last year they were an internal start-up of none other than Google, the NSA-linked Big Brother company. Even now Google remains one of Niantic’s major backers. Niantic was founded by John Hanke, who also founded Keyhole, Inc., the mapping company which was created with seed money from In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital arm, and which was eventually rolled into Google Maps.

So yes, the Pokémon game currently taking the internet by storm (and scooping up all their data, including activities, movements and communications) was created by a CIA-linked businessman who gestated his company at Google.

Feeling safe yet?

As it turns out, the big, bad Big Brother Spies of the NSA and the DHS and the CIA don’t really need their Patriot Act powers, after all. All the powers-that-shouldn’t-be need to do is create a fun, shiny trinket for the people to play with and they will literally pay for their own surveillance.

Dissecting the Royal Society's GMO Whitewash (Video)
Source: CorbettReport.com Submitted: 07/07/2016
Dr. Robert Verkerk is the Executive and Scientific Director of the Alliance for Natural Health. Today we discuss his recent article, "UK Royal Society whitewash on GM crops," which breaks down the Royal Society's recent report on the safety of genetically modified foods. From false assurances of consensus to exclusion of key issues like glyphosates and superweeds, we show how the latest report is a whitewash and discuss why the Royal Society is promoting the biotech industry.  Watch here »
Also, regarding the claim that GMO's are needed to "feed the world," this article points out some facts that most people are unaware of:

"Emily Cassidy, an (EWG) research analyst who authored the report, found that in the last 20 years, yields of both GE corn and soy have been no different from traditionally bred corn and soy grown in western Europe, where GE crops are banned. Additionally, a recent case study in Africa found that crops that were crossbred for drought tolerance using traditional techniques improved yields 30 percent more than GE varieties, she wrote.

"The report also said that in the two decades that GE crops have been a mainstay in conventional agriculture, they "have not substantially improved global food security" and have instead increased the use of toxic herbicides and led to herbicide-resistant "superweeds." (FYI: superweeds have spread to more than 60 million acres of U.S. farmland, wreaking environmental and economic havoc along the way).

"She pointed out that while corn and soybeans take up the vast majority (about 80 percent) of global land devoted to growing GE crops, they are not even used to feed people but instead as animal feed or fuel."

If I was a psychotic social engineer, working hard to destroy "America," I would love this video. Why? Because this is part of their divide-and-conquer paradigm...get people hysterically upset about an "enemy" (liberal, terrorist, etc.), and use that hysteria to drive the target population back into supporting the real enemy.

In short: While we're herded into our "us-VS-them" box, and as we're enjoying our sense of moral and intellectual superiority, the sociopaths that are using government to enslave us are safe. They can rest assured that "Left and Right" will both have a new target for their outrage. (And both will instinctively seek "government representatives" that promise to contain the threat.)

This process only perpetuates / empowers the corrupt system. People become apologists for the crimes advocated and committed by "their side" because they believe "their side" is trying to protect them. Sure, some of the puppets might have good intentions, but "the experts / social engineers" are using those puppets to serve other ends.

Seceding from Socialism (How to Really Make America Great Again)
Source: LewRockwell.com Submitted: 07/03/2016
--The attacks have been so pervasive in the post- Civil War era that to most Americans today the mere mention of the phrase “states’ rights” is quickly dismissed and censored with the word “Neo-Confederate,” with the implication that whomever used that forbidden phrase must certainly have some sort of evil and diabolical purpose in mind. Nothing the Soviet propaganda machine did was ever so effective at censoring opposition to centralized power.

The recent issue of the “Brexit” vote demonstrated that the European Union, like the Soviet Union and the American union, sought (and seeks) a monopoly of political power. And the object of monopoly in any field, Chodorov warned, is “to compel the customer to accept the services of the monopolist on his own terms.” The more monopolistic and centralized government becomes, the more it can dictate to its subjects and treat them like tax slaves.

--The principles of peaceful secession (or threats thereof) and nullification are the essence of self -determination. They are the ultimate expressions of “the consent of the governed” from which all just powers of government are derived, as Jefferson eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence. The original American union was a voluntary union, not a coerced union held together by threats of mass murder and the destruction of entire cities. That was the Soviet Union. That was Nazi Germany. It was also the British empire from which the American colonists seceded.

Propaganda Games: A New Approach to Social Engineering (Video)
Source: YouTube.com Submitted: 07/03/2016
China has gamified being an obedient citizen with the creation of Sesame Credit. The game links to your social network and gives you a score for doing things that the government approves of, but it also reduces that score for doing things the government disapproves of. Even your friends' scores affect your own, and being friends with people who have a low score will drag your score down as well. This insidious system applies social pressure on people to ostracize their friends with lower scores, either forcing those friends to change their ways or effectively quarantining their rebellious ideas.  Watch here »
BBC claims that the company has denied gathering data via social media...sure. "Brave New World" indeed.

Using the current Chinese model outlined above, the enthusiastic supporters of Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot (etc.), would have received the greatest amount of "social credit" in their respective tyrannies.

Maybe we should create a similar game; one that uses adherence to the non-aggression principle (the opposite of blind obedience to the state), as the basis for determining your "social credit" score.

Do citizens (not police officers) with guns ever stop mass shootings?

Another man with a concealed-carry permit then shot the shooter; of course it’s impossible to tell whether the shooter would have kept killing if he hadn’t been stopped, but a police captain was quoted as saying that, “I guess he [the man who shot the shooter] saved a lot of people in there.”

5 Reasons To Question The Official Story Of The Orlando Shooting
Source: ActivistPost.com Submitted: 06/14/2016
--Indeed, the FBI has had a long history in creating, organizing and facilitating terrorist attacks in order to bust them at the last minute and claim credit for stopping terror attacks. The FBI also has a long history of investigating, monitoring and interviewing suspects of high-profile terrorist attacks before those attacks were committed but doing nothing about them.

As Tony Cartalucci writes in his article, "US Law Enforcement Knew Florida Shooter BEFORE Shooting,”

'A terror suspect armed to the teeth storming a public place and killing scores is actually a very familiar script. The FBI wrote several such scripts in 2015 alone, including entrapping and arresting a mentally-ill suspect after providing him with an arsenal of deadly weapons almost identical to the arsenal recently employed in Florida.'

Interestingly enough, in the Ciccolo incident that Cartalucci refers to above, the plan which was fed to Ciccolo involved attacking bars, a target that was actually realized in Orlando. Of course, there will be many who will argue that the FBI, while entrapping unintelligent suspects, would never actually let the drill go live it is important to remember the 1993 World Trade Center bombing where that is precisely what the FBI did.

This is what it boils down to for me:

Do the "intelligence services" have the ability to organize these types of psychological warfare operations? (Yes.) Have they done so in other countries? (Yes.) Were the operations effective; did they yield the desired political results? (Yes.)

Take it a step further: Have the "intelligence services" conspired to use psychological warfare against the citizens and government of the United States? (Yes.) Do the intelligence services regularly "create" and then "disrupt" terror plots, under the guise of "conducting sting operations?" (Yes.) Does this provide them cover; essentially a blank check to cultivate terrorism? (Yes.)

Now we're getting somewhere...In order to nudge politicians and the public in a certain direction, could the intelligence services periodically "drop the ball" on one of their manufactured terror plots? (Yes.) Would it be wise to consider this possibility; to look for FBI and CIA connections whenever a politically useful event occurs? (Yes.) Last but not least: Is there any logical reason NOT to suspect the intelligence services? (No.)

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple…to force these people…to turn to the State to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the State cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”—Vincenzo Vinciguerra, Gladio-linked terrorist
Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science
Source: TheAtlantic.com Submitted: 06/11/2016
--To get funding and tenured positions, and often merely to stay afloat, researchers have to get their work published in well-regarded journals, where rejection rates can climb above 90 percent. Not surprisingly, the studies that tend to make the grade are those with eye-catching findings.

--Researchers can sometimes win attention by refuting a prominent finding, which can help to at least raise doubts about results, but in general it is far more rewarding to add a new insight or exciting-sounding twist to existing research than to retest its basic premises—after all, simply re-proving someone else’s results is unlikely to get you published, and attempting to undermine the work of respected colleagues can have ugly professional repercussions.

--[ Ioannidis] zoomed in on 49 of the most highly regarded research findings in medicine over the previous 13 years, as judged by the science community’s two standard measures: the papers had appeared in the journals most widely cited in research articles, and the 49 articles themselves were the most widely cited articles in these journals. These were articles that helped lead to the widespread popularity of treatments such as the use of hormone-replacement therapy for menopausal women, vitamin E to reduce the risk of heart disease, coronary stents to ward off heart attacks, and daily low-dose aspirin to control blood pressure and prevent heart attacks and strokes. Ioannidis was putting his contentions to the test not against run-of-the-mill research, or even merely well-accepted research, but against the absolute tip of the research pyramid. Of the 49 articles, 45 claimed to have uncovered effective interventions. Thirty-four of these claims had been retested, and 14 of these, or 41 percent, had been convincingly shown to be wrong or significantly exaggerated. If between a third and a half of the most acclaimed research in medicine was proving untrustworthy, the scope and impact of the problem were undeniable.

--Though scientists and science journalists are constantly talking up the value of the peer-review process, researchers admit among themselves that biased, erroneous, and even blatantly fraudulent studies easily slip through it. Nature, the grande dame of science journals, stated in a 2006 editorial, “Scientists understand that peer review per se provides only a minimal assurance of quality, and that the public conception of peer review as a stamp of authentication is far from the truth.”

Downsize DC makes it easy for you to contact your "representatives." Here is the message I sent today:

Indefinite detention violates the core principles on which this country was founded. To think that "government" can simply revoke a person's rights FOREVER by labeling them a "terrorist" (without presenting evidence, without giving the accused an opportunity to defend themselves), is absurd.

Prior to receiving "due process," a citizen is merely an ACCUSED criminal. (Thief, rapist, murderer or terrorist…the crime that an individual is accused of does not alter the process by which guilt is determined.) Any attempt to circumvent due process is dangerous and illegitimate. Please honor your sworn oath to "support and defend" the Constitution of this country.

What if a company that you thought you could trust, knowingly sold you a medicine for your child that they knew had the potential to give your child HIV? How would you react?

Everyone has heard of Bayer aspirin, it is a household name. Bayer AG also manufactures numerous other products, from pesticides to medicine for hemophiliacs called Factor 8.

In 1984 Bayer became aware that several batches of this Factor 8 contained HIV. They knew this because there was an outbreak of HIV among hemophiliac children, and this outbreak was traced back to Bayer. Unable to sell their Factor 8 in the US, Bayer, with the FDA’s permission, (yes that’s right, the FDA allowed Bayer to potentially kill thousands) sold this HIV infected medicine to Argentina, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore after February 1984, according to the documents obtained by the NY Times.

Top CDC Whistle Blower: We Were Ordered to Cover Up Vaccine-Autism Link (Video - 34 Minutes)
Source: InfoWars.com Submitted: 06/05/2016
Approximately 7:50 in:

Let me, first of all, break it down. This film is about MMR and autism, that does not mean that other vaccines are safe or other vaccine components are not linked to autism. This is based upon the information provided to us by the whistleblower, so it is based exclusively on facts. He gave us the analysis plans, he gave us the data outputs, he gave us the meeting notes, he gave us the internal correspondence, showing that the knowledge of this went right to the very top of the CDC. It went to Julie Gerberding herself who then, of course, went on to become head of vaccines at Merck...so, they knew about it, they all knew about it, this was a huge crime.

So let me now break down the levels of the crime they committed...what did they do in terms of fraud? First of all, they changed the analysis plan...In science, you set out a protocol: "This is what we'll do, this is how we'll analyize the data, and we will stick to it." You do not change that plan when you find an effect that you do not like, and that is what they did. Then they decided to omit data, and they ommitted data specifically on the very high risk in African American children, African American boys in particular, and in children...(all races)...who were developmentally normal to age 12 months...They then decided that they had to destroy the documents in order to get rid of that effect...The value of Thompson as a whistleblower is, as he says in the movie itself, "I will not give you anything that cannot be supported by the facts."

I haven't seen Vaxxed, but my position on this issue hasn't changed:

Many people see the CDC as a final arbiter of truth; a "gold standard" of scientific integrity. The idea that a tiny group of individuals within the CDC could (and would) manipulate "the truth" seems ridiculous to the average citizen, and that's why this story is so important. It goes beyond the issue of vaccines. It highlights how easily "the gospel," intended for mass consumption and reiteration, can be fabricated. It highlights the danger of believing that others can be trusted to do your reasoning for you.

"They [the NSA] don’t care what they do, they feel that they have the right to do anything that they feel necessary, and they will cover up crimes and procedures and violations of regulations that they’ve done to achieve whatever their ends are," Binney tells Loud & Clear host Brian Becker.

A former high-ranking official within the NSA, Binney and two other officials led an effort to have the agency investigated for wasting millions of dollars on a data-analysis program known as Trailblazer in 2002.

Rather than treat Binney’s complaint as legitimate, the Defense Department Inspector General’s office violated protocol by conspiring with the FBI to punish Binney and his cohorts.

"They attempted to prosecute all of us," he says. "They fabricated evidence…They attempted three times to indict us."

As usual, the "I've-got-nothing-to-hide" people are commenting on the video. One example:

"I don't even get why people care about this, if the government wants to see my porn, GO AHEAD. My bank account? you'll laugh! and probably chip in!"

My Reply:

If you live a politically meaningless life, you probably don't have much to worry about. At least not at this stage. (The government is happy to see you with your pants around your ankles looking at porn...you pose no threat to illegitimate power).

However, if you actually care about murder for profit (unnecessary / illegal wars), violations of basic human and privacy rights; if you resist things like multi-trillion dollar banker bailouts, mandatory vaccinations, and other corporate-drafted policies that are enforced in the name of "government;"well then, that's a different story.

History proves that a handful of dedicated people can effect change; they can raise awareness and disrupt inherently criminal systems. Problem is, the ruling-class criminals who profit from those systems don't like to be disrupted. Therefore, in the interest of self preservation, it makes sense to frustrate their power grabs whenever possible.

Google "Tragedy and Hope 101" if you feel the term "ruling-class criminals" is an exaggeration. (You can read the book for free online.)
Propaganda More Difficult in Era of Internet
Source: TheDailyBell.com Submitted: 05/29/2016
--Yahoo’s Katie Couric has just released an anti-gun documentary with a manufactured pause that mocks pro-gun interviewees. This is one of those stories that the mainstream media cannot ignore.

It provides us with further evidence that those who wish to propagandize audiences need to be careful about how they do it. If biases are not revealed, the Internet may expose them.

The perspective of the documentary is not surprising, but its clumsiness has likely undermined its effectiveness.

Flashback: Joseph Stiglitz Explains IMF/World Bank "Assistance"
Source: GregPalast.com Submitted: 05/23/2016
--Joseph Stiglitz was Chief Economist of the World Bank. To a great extent, the new world economic order was his theory come to life.

I "debriefed" Stigltiz over several days, at Cambridge University, in a London hotel and finally in Washington in April 2001 during the big confab of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

--There's an Assistance Strategy for every poorer nation, designed, says the World Bank, after careful in-country investigation. But according to insider Stiglitz, the Bank's staff 'investigation' consists of close inspection of a nation's 5-star hotels. It concludes with the Bank staff meeting some begging, busted finance minister who is handed a 'restructuring agreement' pre-drafted for his 'voluntary' signature (I have a selection of these).

Each nation's economy is individually analyzed, then, says Stiglitz, the Bank hands every minister the same exact four-step program.

Step One is Privatization - which Stiglitz said could more accurately be called, 'Briberization.' Rather than object to the sell-offs of state industries, he said national leaders - using the World Bank's demands to silence local critics - happily flogged their electricity and water companies. "You could see their eyes widen" at the prospect of 10% commissions paid to Swiss bank accounts for simply shaving a few billion off the sale price of national assets.

How corporate America bought Hillary Clinton for $21M
Source: NYpost.com Submitted: 05/22/2016
Ronald Reagan was severely criticized in 1989 when, after he left office, he was paid $2 million for a couple of speeches in Japan. “The founding fathers would have been stunned that an occupant of the highest office in this land turned it into bucks,” sniffed a Columbia professor.

So what would Washington and Jefferson make of Hillary Rodham Clinton? Mandatory financial disclosures released this month show that, in just the two years from April 2013 to March 2015, the former first lady, senator and secretary of state collected $21,667,000 in “speaking fees,” not to mention the cool $5 mil she corralled as an advance for her 2014 flop book, “Hard Choices.”

Court Backs Snowden, Strikes Secret Laws
Source: Bloomberg.com Submitted: 05/17/2016
In a major vindication for Edward Snowden -- and a blow for the national security policy pursued by Republicans and Democrats alike -- the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Thursday that the National Security Agency’s metadata collection program is unlawful. This is the most serious blow to date for the legacy of the USA Patriot Act and the surveillance overreach that followed 9/11.

The central question depended on the meaning of the word "relevant": Was the government's collection relevant to an investigation when it collects all the metadata for any phone call made to or from anywhere in the U.S.?

The court said no. That was the right decision -- not so much because it protects privacy, as because it broke the bad precedent of secret law created by the NSA and endorsed by the secret national security court known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

The Outsiders: Trump and Sanders
Source: JoePlummer.com Submitted: 05/11/2016
--Based on the information contained in Tragedy and Hope 101, I suppose it's understandable why I haven't paid much attention to this election cycle. That said, I had originally heard a few things about Trump that I found encouraging, and watching "the Establishment" attack him earned a few brownie points. I even thought: "What would happen if Trump chose Ron Paul as his running mate; wouldn't that be something?"

Considering what I've recently learned about Trump, it seems pretty unlikely that he'd ever consider a man like Ron Paul as VP. It's equally unlikely that Ron Paul would accept the offer. One thing is for sure: There is no way I would endorse (let alone vote for) Trump. I've seen too many of his type during my research over the years...they're unfit for power.

US Struggles to Convince Iraqis it Doesn't Support ISIS
Source: DailyMail.co.uk Submitted: 05/11/2016
--Despite spending more than $10 million on public outreach in Iraq last year, the U.S. government appears to have made little headway in dispelling such rumors.

An unscientific survey by the State Department of Iraqi residents last year found that 40 percent believe that U.S. policy is working to 'destabilize Iraq and control its natural resources,' and a third believe America 'supports terrorism in general and (IS) specifically.'

Skepticism about U.S. motives is deeply rooted in Iraq, where many still blame the chaos after the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein on American malice rather than incompetence.

TTIP - Economic Imperialism
Source: Paul Craig Roberts Submitted: 05/06/2016
--Greenpeace secured and leaked the secret TTIP documents that Washington and global corporations are pushing on Europe. The official documents prove that my description of these “partnerships” when they first appeared in the news is totally correct.

These so-called “free trade agreements” are not trade agreements. The purpose of the “partnerships,” which were drafted by global corporations, is to make corporations immune to the laws of sovereign countries in which they do business. Any country’s sovereign law whether social, environmental, food safety, labor protections—any law or regulation—that impacts a corporation’s profits is labeled a “restraint on trade.” The “partnerships” permit corporations to file a suit that overturns the law or regulation and also awards the corporation damages paid by the taxpayers of the country that tried to protect its environment or the safety of its food and workers.

The law suit is not heard in the courts of the country or in any court. It is heard in a corporate tribunal in which corporations serve as judge, jury, and prosecutor.

The EU – A CIA Covert Operation
Source: Antiwar.com Submitted: 05/02/2016
--The “European Movement,” which was and still is the “grassroots” organization that relentlessly pushed for the creation of a European super-state, was financed to the tune of $1 million a year by the “American Committee for a United Europe” (ACUE), which was founded by Allen Dulles, who was at that point chairing a committee tasked with looking at how to organize the nascent CIA, and William “Wild Bill” Donovan, who had been head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), forerunner of the CIA.

-- Covert US financial support to the European federalist movement never amounted to “less than half” of the various groups’ budgets. The money was funneled through the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and other private conduits. The head of the Ford Foundation was Paul Hoffman, a former OSS official who played a major leadership role in the ACUE.

-- Globalism is the name of the game for our deracinated elites, and nationalism – of any kind, including the American variety – is the enemy. That’s why we’re seeing both the Obama administration and the ostensibly “Conservative” Party leadership of the British state undertake a combined assault against Euro-skepticism and the threat of “xenophobia.” If you don’t want to see your country absorbed into the Euro-Borg, then you’re a “racist,” a right-wing extremist, and a hate-criminal to boot.

Decades of Textbook Teaching Overturned: Brain is Linked to Immune System
Source: Virginia.edu Submitted: 04/30/2016
It’s a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching: researchers at the School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist.

--“I just said one sentence: ‘They’ll have to rewrite the textbooks.’ There has never been a lymphatic system for the central nervous system, and it was very clear from that first singular observation — and they’ve done many studies since then to bolster the finding — that it will fundamentally change the way people look at the central nervous system’s relationship with the immune system,” Lee said.

--The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it. For example, take Alzheimer’s disease. “In Alzheimer’s, there are accumulations of big protein chunks in the brain,” Kipnis said. “We think they may be accumulating in the brain because they’re not being efficiently removed by these vessels.” He noted that the vessels look different with age, so the role they play in aging is another avenue to explore. And there’s an enormous array of other neurological diseases, from autism to multiple sclerosis, that must be reconsidered in light of the presence of something science insisted did not exist.

So think about that for a minute...all the way up until the 21st century, this connection was completely unknown to science (and, along with it, all of the potential implications regarding its effect on our health).

If the relatively simple (and ancient) process of mapping the human body can still reveal unexpected structures, imagine what might still be unknown about the FAR MORE complex synergistic effects of mass vaccinating a young / developing immune system. Those who suggest that the "science is settled" on this issue are being ridiculous.
Beware Americans Bearing Gifts: NGOs as Trojan Horses
Source: CorbettReport.com Submitted: 04/30/2016
--If you’re watching the newswires closely enough, you’ll start to notice a pattern:

Kyrgyzstan has just stripped USAID of its special privileges in their country.

And Russia has just officially declared the National Endowment for Democracy to be an undesirable NGO in the territory of Russia.

And China has just introduced a Foreign NGO Management Law that will require overseas NGOs to register with the government and have their activities more closely monitored.

And in 2013, Bolivia kicked USAID out of the country with Ecuador following suit later the same year.

And earlier this year the Indian government added the Ford Foundation to a security watch list and will hold all payments from the fund for approval before disbursements are made.

What on earth is going on? Why are all of these countries (including 3 of the 5 BRICS members and other countries in 2D geopolitical conflict with the US) kicking out all of these US-based nongovernmental and quasi-governmental entities? Why would they be opposed to charity and aid?

Mass surveillance silences minority opinions, according to study
Source: WashingtonPost.com Submitted: 04/28/2016
--The “spiral of silence” is a well-researched phenomenon in which people suppress unpopular opinions to fit in and avoid social isolation. It has been looked at in the context of social media and the echo-chamber effect, in which we tailor our opinions to fit the online activity of our Facebook and Twitter friends. But this study adds a new layer by explicitly examining how government surveillance affects self-censorship.  Read full article »
So, if the Network (representing a tiny minority), can create the illusion of "majority opinion," it can manipulate the REAL majority into remaining silent. (This, of course, reinforces the illusion and perpetuates the "spiral of silence.") Pretty clever, huh?

Edward Snowden Sped Up Spread of Encryption by 7 Years
Source: TheIntercept.com Submitted: 04/28/2016
--“As a result of the Snowden revelations, the onset of commercial encryption has accelerated by seven years,” James Clapper said during a breakfast for journalists hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

The shortened timeline has had “a profound effect on our ability to collect, particularly against terrorists,” he said.

When pressed by The Intercept to explain his figure, Clapper said it came from the National Security Agency. “The projected growth maturation and installation of commercially available encryption — what they had forecasted for seven years ahead, three years ago, was accelerated to now, because of the revelation of the leaks.”

Asked if that was a good thing, leading to better protection for American consumers from the arms race of hackers constantly trying to penetrate software worldwide, Clapper answered no.

“From our standpoint, it’s not … it’s not a good thing,” he said.

I suppose it's only appropriate that this event was hosted by one of the "Establishment-" controlled media outlets identified by Carroll Quigley:

"The American branch of this “English Establishment” exerted much of its influence through five American newspapers (The New York Times, New York Herald Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, the Washington Post, and the lamented Boston Evening Transcript). In fact, the editor of the Christian Science Monitor was the chief American correspondent (anonymously)…It might be mentioned that the existence of this Wall Street, Anglo-American axis is quite obvious once it is pointed out." --Tragedy and Hope, page 953
