Also note there is no such thing as 100% security today. If "they" really want to find an individual they likely will. If "they" really want to see what you are doing, they likely will be able to with enough manpower put to use.

The goal is to make this as difficult as possible for "them", and there are ways to make it very difficult. You can spoof metadata, there are tools to do it. You can spoof your MAC address and IP address. You can use disc encryption and use forward secrecy. You can use fake aliases. You can route into other obscure encrypted decentralized networks. All of this is possible with the right know how and tools.

The goal should be obfuscating as much data as possible while online, encrypting as much as possible and erasing your tracks as much as possible. And using alternative platforms when needed.

I hear you loud and clear, but that's just not a real counter argument really, it's just your opinion towards specific people which you generalize, categorize, and label for your own comfort. Just because some guy online says one thing doesn't mean they have no opinion about other things, they just didn't bother sharing said opinions publicly or perhaps they already had through other means, nobody knows, and you sure can't claim to know either. Stop demonizing everyone, just accept what's true and don't self victimize about issues that people didn't even mention. Getting triggered about what people didn't say is a bad habit of complaining too much online, and you truly don't know those you accuse without substantial evidence just as they don't know you, arguing ignorantly about off topic shit that doesn't even matter. Grow up, don't associate me with your stereotype either, it's called being an individual with their own priorities, experience, thoughts, etc. Those that seek something needs to enlighten themselves in whatever subject before looking for like minded peers better than you to help you get better, but nobody is entitled to help, especially those that complain about free anonymous "help"/criticism. Count your blessings.

FLASE FLAG ADMITTED! POLICE TO CHARGE "MULTIPLE SHOOTERS" INVOLVED WITH LAST YEAR'S VEGAS MASSACRE! Reader 01/18/2018 (Thu) 00:54:47 Id: 495ab7 [Preview] No. 5558 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police have announced that new charges are being brought against ‘multiple shooters’ connected to the Mandalay Bay massacre.

LVPD attorney Nicholas Crosby said Tuesday that the police were prohibited from publicly releasing search warrants related to the shooting because “potential charges against other people” is in the works, according to Fox News.

Crosby’s revelation came as a surprise to most in the courtroom. It was the newest information in regards to the investigation that the public seems to have garnered unwittingly by Crosby when explaining to have the warrants remained sealed. Crosby did not say who would face charges.

Crosby, paradoxically, posited that he cannot argue the facts of the case without compromising what the police are trying to protect. He suggested having an in-camera hearing, meaning one in private.

Zerohedge.com reports: While the Las Vegas PD’s warrants were kept under seal for the time being, last week FBI search warrants were unsealed for Stephen Paddock and girlfriend Marilou Danley’s email accounts, which revealed Paddock engaging in a cryptic exchange with himself over various firearms used in the shooting.

Ms. Danley also admitted to investigators that her fingerprints were likely to be on the ammunition, as she said she frequently helped Paddock load magazines and move rounds.

Multimillionaire real-estate developer and video-poker aficionado Stephen Paddock, 64, unleashed a hail of bullets into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay on the night of October 1, 2017, killing 58 over a 10 minute period before reportedly shooting himself in the head.

Meanwhile one of several questions surrounding the still-unsolved Mandalay Bay shooting is the lack of any closed circuit television footage (CCTV) of shooter Stephen Paddock anywhere in the hotel in the days leading up to the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

No footage has been seen of Paddock checking in at the Mandalay Bay lobby, walking around the hotel, or lugging more than 20 long rifles up to his 32nd floor room along with thousands of rounds of ammunition before his deadly rampage on October 1, 2017 which claimed the lives of 58 country-music fans over a 10 minute period.

Mandalay Bay Valet Chad Nishimura spoke briefly with Paddock, and said he “seemed like a normal guy. When he came in, nothing too weird about him. He didn’t have any crazy bags with him that I can remember. We are a convention hotel so we have a bunch of people that have boxes and multiple carts worth of stuff. There’s nothing weird that I can remember.”

Given that Las Vegas casinos are some of the most heavily monitored establishments in the United States – if not the world, it stands to reason that there would at least be some footage of Paddock roaming around before the attack – however there may be an explanation…

After a theft of marketing materials during the 2017 VMworld conference held in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center August 27-31, hotel officials were unable to provide closed circuit television footage due to “camera/equipment malfunction.”

As The Register reported two weeks after the theft:

[H]yperconverged contender Maxta printed badges bearing the motto “You can’t have it your way with Nutanix” and stored them in private areas of its stand at the exhibition running alongside VMware’s conference. The company alleged that 200 of the badges were removed from the stand by parties unknown.

Maxta therefore sought CCTV footage of the exhibition floor. The company that runs VMworld security took the request seriously enough to approach the venue, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. In correspondence seen by The Register Mandalay Bay staff say “Video of the incident area was not available due to camera/equipment malfunction”.

VMworld’s security firm was also told that security footage “is proprietary to Mandalay Bay” and cannot be viewed by third parties.

Maxta tells us it was also given the “proprietary” excuse.

Mandalay Bay security executives ignored multiple requests by The Register as to their policies regarding security footage or why the system was down, noting “It’s richly ironic that CCTV failed to work at an exhibition that hosts as big a collection of storage and security vendors as you’re likely to find together at one place and at one time. It’s also odd that Mandalay Bay’s video cameras and recorders went down – perhaps it saves the reliable surveillance kit for spotting naughtiness on the the gaming floor.”

The lack of CCTV footage is just one of many strange aspects of the still-unsolved deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history – which include a shifting timeline, a mysteriously missing security guard, strange stock options activity leading up to the attack, $100,000 Paddock wired to his girlfriend in the Philippines days before the attack, a claim by ISIS that Paddock had converted to Islam six months before the attack, a strange 4chan warning of a “high incident project” three weeks before the attack, and a strange woman warning people about the shooting before the concert:

Paddock also took over 20 cruises to the Middle East and Europe, including Jordan and the UAE.

As we reported on Saturday, unsealed search warrants reveal Paddock may have been setting up some of arrangement over email in July, 2017, seemingly with himself.

In an email sent from Paddock’s Microsoft Live email account, “centralpark1@live.com” to “centralpark4804@gmail.com,” Paddock wrote “try and ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area.” The “centralpark4804” account wrote back “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.” Paddock emailed back “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.”

According to some, this is the first information on the record suggesting that the gunman may have had help.

The warrant goes on to read “Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.”

Upon searching Paddock’s Mesquite, NV home, police recovered approximately 18 firearms, more ammonia nitrate, several pounds of the explosive tannerite, several rounds of ammunition, and “electronic devices” – while a “large quantity of ammunition and multiple firearms” were recovered from Paddock’s Reno residence.

Paddock also reportedly attempted to buy a large quantity of tracer ammunition in the month prior to the attack, however the dealer he approached did not have any in stock.

While breaching Paddock’s room at approximately 10:55 pm, an officer accidentally fired one round from his sidearm, reportedly not hitting anyone. Paddock, meanwhile, was found laying awkwardly over a rifle with what investigators reported to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Oddly, recordings of the incident do not contain Paddock’s final “suicide shot.”

Oh Diversity! Ex-CIA Officer Suspected Of Helping China Assassinate US Informants Arrested At JFK International Airport Reader 01/17/2018 (Wed) 23:22:22 Id: 2a726b [Preview] No. 5556 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A former CIA officer suspected of helping China identify the US spy agency's informants was arrested at JFK International Airport on Monday on charges of unlawful retention of national defense information, according to the Department of Justice.

Many of the agency's informants were killed in a "systematic dismantling of the CIA's spy network in China starting in 2010," according to the New York Times, which notes it was one of the American government's "worst intelligence failures in recent years."

The arrest of the former agent, Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, capped an intense F.B.I. investigation that began around 2012 after the C.I.A. began losing its informants in China. Mr. Lee was at the center of a mole hunt in which some intelligence officials believed that he had betrayed the United States but others thought that the Chinese government had hacked the C.I.A.’s covert communications used to talk to foreign sources of information. -NYT

"Jerry Chun Shing Lee, aka “Zhen Cheng Li”, 53 - a U.S. Citizen currently living in Hong Kong, began working for the CIA as a case officer in 1994, where he would spend the next 13 years with a Top Secret clearance and signing "numerous non-disclosure agreements," according to a DOJ press release.

According to court documents, in August 2012, Lee and his family left Hong Kong to return to the United States to live in northern Virginia. While traveling back to the United States, Lee and his family had hotel stays in Hawaii and Virginia. During each of the hotel stays, FBI agents conducted court-authorized searches of Lee’s room and luggage, and found that Lee was in unauthorized possession of materials relating to the national defense.

Specifically, agents found two small books containing handwritten notes that contained classified information, including but not limited to, true names and phone numbers of assets and covert CIA employees, operational notes from asset meetings, operational meeting locations and locations of covert facilities.

Lee appeared in an New York courtroom Tuesday afternoon where he was ordered held without bail. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison if convicted. The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Lee, 53, served in the U.S. Army from 1982 through 1986 and worked for the CIA between 1994 and 2007 according to an affidavit filed by an FBI agent.

The FBI agent wrote that Lee and his family left Hong Kong in August 2012 to travel to northern Virginia. Along the way, they stayed in hotels where the FBI found the books.

The small books were discovered inside Lee’s luggage, sealed in a small clear plastic travel pack.

The handwritten information inside ranged in terms of classification, but the agent said at least one page contained top secret information, “the disclosure of which could cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security of the United States.” -Reuters

The FBI agent's affidavit also noted that classified cables written by Lee while he was a case officer describing his interactions with CIA informants corroborated what was found in the two books.

Lee was interviewed five times by the FBI according to Reuters, never disclosing that he had the books. He also met with former CIA colleagues around that time without returning the classified materials, said the Justice Department.

"Pure Coincidence": America’s Unhealthiest State Has Highest Vaccination Rate Reader 01/17/2018 (Wed) 19:52:49 Id: f956fb [Preview] No. 5551 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5468

New figures released by the CDC reveals that America’s unhealthiest State – Mississippi – just so happens to have the highest vaccination rate in the country.

In a Daily Beast Op-ed, Paul Offit – one of the vaccine industry’s biggest cheerleaders – openly admits the new figures are ‘puzzling.’

How, Offit wonders, could the state of Mississippi, which has “the worst overall health in the nation,” have used standout “efficiency” to achieve over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners? Rather than seriously investigate this apparent enigma, Offit presents his ready-made answer and reveals his article’s true purpose. According to Paul Offit, Mississippi’s high vaccination rates are due to the state’s 1979 decision to make the government—rather than parents—the primary vaccine decision-maker for children.

Reflecting on the Mississippi Supreme Court’s 1979 elimination of that state’s religious exemption to vaccination, Offit applauds the Court’s position, stating, “If a parent harbors a religious belief that contradicts a basic tenant [sic] of modern medicine…the state has a right to protect the child from the irresponsible acts of the parent.” Offit—though a parent himself—tells readers that the state-determined “duty” to vaccinate supersedes other parental rights. In short, Offit appears to believe that coercion is the name of the game, openly admitting that he disapproves of the 47 states that still allow parents in the U.S. to take religious, moral or personal beliefs into account when making vaccine decisions on behalf of their children.

“The worst health in the nation”

According to the comprehensive state-by-state health rankings that Offit cites, Mississippi has remained squarely at the bottom of the nation’s overall health rankings for decades (Figure 1). The low ranking correlates, in part, with the state’s poverty statistics: one-third of Mississippi’s children live in poverty (the highest percentage of any state), and 87% of the state’s Medicaid enrollees are children. But from birth on, scattered health statistics suggest that Mississippi’s children and adolescents face other physical and mental health challenges as well. To cite some examples from the available data:

Mississippi’s infant mortality rate is more than twice as high (8.8 deaths per thousand live births) as New Hampshire’s (4.2 per 1000), which is the U.S. state with the highest health ranking. The percentage of low birthweight babies in Mississippi is also high—11.4% versus 6.9% in New Hampshire.

Asthma-related emergency department visits and hospital discharges are higher for children ages 0-4 than for any other pediatric or adult age group.

I live in the suburbs and I have seen white people eat just as poorly as black people all the time. Parents taking their kids out to Taco Bell and McD's and Sonic. Shit, whole families getting twice baked pizzas and drinking it down with a 12 pack of soda.

Uhhhhhh! You have no clue seriously bad diet and unhealthy lifestyles is being directed against the population as a whole, do you?

This is not just about one 'inferior' race. This is about horrific health habits and those vaccines they pump people full of are full of toxins as well. It is very sad, but I must now restate my previous conclusion:

Health is all about the immune system. If you have a strong immune system, you can fight sickness without much intervention. If your immune system is weak, then you'll need medical attention and have a very hard time when falling ill (and you stand a better chance of falling ill with a weakened immune system.)

Why does Big Pharma lace the vaccines with poison?

Simple: $$$$$$

By injecting you with laced toxins, they are weakening your immune system. By weakening your immune system, you need more help and services when you get sick. This makes Big Pharma more money! They will never admit this (because its a war crime by UN Geneva Convention Laws). But, like all other despots, they do it anyway, because they make profits when people are SICK... not the other way around.

Until Americans come to terms with these war crimes for profit, they will remain ignorant, sickly and die young, enjoying what stupidity has to offer while it lasts.

Here's some other facts about modern vaccines, it is a copypasta but a fucking good one:

Regardless of what your position on vaccinations is, any rational person cannot deny that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic. In fact, almost every single ingredient in any immunization is toxic to the human body. Besides the vitamins and minerals, nobody in their right mind would drink a concoction with any one or combination of most of the vaccine ingredients (and those vitamins and minerals they add are toxic, too). Most vaccinations are directly injected into our bodies, allowing the ingredients to directly enter the bloodstream, which rationally, seems like an even more dangerous approach.

Vaccine ingredients (adjuvants and preservatives) and substances used in the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media that are present only in trace quantities, include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, squalene and ethanol. Vaccinations also contain many inorganic minerals, vitamins, amino acids, salts, and sugars.

Much of the vaccine material will not leave the body without assistance, especially with a typical modern lifestyle and diet.



Autopilot Teslas to Kill People $, The Media Flaunts It $, Govt To Cover-up Deaths And Disasters $ Reader 01/17/2018 (Wed) 16:04:04 Id: 027b97 [Preview] No. 5540 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
WHY IS TELSA STILL BEING SUBSIDIZED!?
RELATED: https://archive.fo/W6Ytx

It's a calm Saturday morning in August of next year. Suddenly, across the nation, 12,000 Tesla Model S sedans start up at the same time. They engage Tesla's vaunted autopilot feature and head out onto the road. Some of them make their way to local gas stations. Some to electrical substations. And then, as they approach, they accelerate to top speed. The explosions are fantastic as the Model S batteries rupture and spark fires, which ignite anything flammable in the area. The power grid in the Los Angeles area is brought down almost immediately. Hundreds of fires rage. America is under attack. This might sound like science fiction. It's not.

With 'cyber security' the first thing to understand is that the internet is ungovernable because locality is irrelevant and identity is shroudable. This is by design—it's the Internet—we're all supposed to be able to talk to everyone and it wasn't designed at the protocol level to require payment or identification.

Cyber criminals make mistakes and are arrested occasionally, but attacks can originate from states that do not cooperate with international institutions or foreign governments. And outside of the developed world there is often even less of a distinction between private individuals and state actors: A software security expert can work to enrich herself—or a criminal enterprise—one day and then work for their government’s intelligence service the next. This makes international cooperation even more difficult.

The second thing to recognize about cyber security is that attack is much easier than defense. Attackers can probe from multiple points, such as previously-hacked computers or servers rented with stolen credit card information. They can patiently try different strategies until they succeed. Talented attackers may first invent a new method of attack, then write software to scan servers or internet traffic to create a prioritized list of potentially vulnerable organizations, and only then begin systematically breaching them.

A defender, on the other hand, is a sitting target. Her application is public facing, with URLs, domains, and data centers that anyone can investigate. She has a consistent, detectable set of operating systems, software languages, and libraries that are as well understood by potential adversaries as they are by the in-house team that is responsible for managing them.

Oh I forgot to mention this one: >>>/news/5407

Tesla can't even send a satellite into orbit, and when they fail they blame it on everyone else! Yet their failures have costed taxpayers millions of dollars!

In any real free market, truly capitalist nation, this company would be shunned and discarded so fast it would make Musk run like a rabbit under fire! He'd be done for! The company would go bankrupt! There would be no subsidies! They fail, they lose, tough luck, they go bankrupt! And other companies - much better quality companies - would take over and get contracts! This whole damn country forgot what fair competition is! No one knows the meaning of competing for quality, competing to out-do one another! Worthless fiat currency has been flushed into this system and corrupted everything including our government! And now lives are at stake! And now national security is at stake! And now our whole country as we know it is at stake! And no one gives a damn anymore! So you got these spoiled companies that will burn everything down, destroy lives, wreck havok, and FAIL FAIL FAIL! And what do they get!? More fucking money!!!

Most of the previous individual tests of this same exact model have failed before. They never got everything straightened out or secured. I think someone even died in an accident, I don't know if Tesla was sued or handed out compensation or what happened. As far as I'm concerned this article is admitted duplicity. They know this will kill people, but they are going to do it anyway. And why not? They can pretty much get away with anything, there is no more sanity or justice or common sense in America to stop this anymore, so why not commit manslaughter against the gullible public?

I admit it. I was really gullible too. I could have sworn sanity and common sense would emerge out from the ashes after Trump was elected. I was wrong. The self-destruction of our nation continues as was planned. I will likely try to find a way to join a class-action lawsuit to sue Tesla for voluntarily manslaughter when shit gets wrecked and lives are taken away. Lets sue the fuckers out of existence.

Wall Street Tycoon, Larry Fink, Now Shilling Feudal Communism Reader 01/17/2018 (Wed) 19:29:44 Id: 9d4af6 [Preview] No. 5549 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Laurence D. Fink is the founder and chief executive of the enormous investment firm BlackRock, which manages in the neighborhood of $6 trillion of assets. That enormous hoard of financial assets–which it invests on behalf of individuals with 401(k) plans institutions such as pension funds, state and local governments, Fortune 500 companies, sovereign wealth funds, and college endowments–makes BlackRock the largest investor in the world. It gives BlackRock–and Fink himself–enormous sway in corporate boardrooms and the stock market.

Now Fink is deploying his financial clout by demanding business leaders adhere to a communist agenda. In his annual letter released Tuesday, Fink announced that BlackRock will require that companies make a “positive contribution to society” and “serve a social purpose.”

That doesn’t sound too bad when stated broadly. Although likely to irk capitalists who agree with the late economist Milton Friedman that the best social purpose a business can pursue is to maximize profits by selling products its customers want to buy, many Americans probably agree with the notion that corporations should consider how to contribute to society beyond creating jobs, making sales, and earning profits.

Unfortunately, Fink goes beyond calling for increased corporate responsibility. His letter makes it clear that he defines the act of making a contribution very narrowly. He wants companies to adopt left-wing policy goals in the name of corporate responsibility.

Companies must ask themselves: What role do we play in the community? How are we managing our impact on the environment? Are we working to create a diverse workforce? Are we adapting to technological change? Are we providing the retraining and opportunities that our employees and our business will need to adjust to an increasingly automated world? Are we using behaviorial financial and other tools to prepare workers for retirement, so that they invest in a way that will help them achieve their goals.

This reads like a checklist from the priorities of the left wing of the Democratic party? Environmentalism? Check. Diversity virtue signaling? Check. Retraining? Check. Jobs threatened by automation (but not immigration or trade)? Check.

The last point, about using behavioral financial tools to “prepare workers for retirement” is both a liberal talking point (the left loves the idea of using the lessons of ‘behavioral economics’ to nudge people into behaving in ways liberals think they should) and incredibly self-serving (since pushing workers to save more through 401(k)s is likely to push even more money into BlackRock’s coffers).

What’s missing from the list? Anything even vaguely conservative, #MAGA, or hinting of economic nationalism. There’s nothing about immigration and the legal duty not to hire illegal immigrants. Nothing about the displacement of workers from unfair trade practices. Nothing about opioid addiction that is devastating so many American families. Nothing about protecting free speech and the traditional of tolerating dissenting political views. No protection for religious freedom. There’s not even talk of working to rebuild America’s failing infrastructure.

In other words, Fink is not urging corporate America to evolve toward being more socially responsible. This isn’t about companies needing a “sense of purpose” that will benefit society. It’s about loading the dice in favor of the communist agenda that has ruined America and the middle class.

I am very glad and very lucky I am now retired and have withdrawn from my 401K. I intend to diversify even more of my savings OUTSIDE the dollar, my bet is Russia and China will be the next superpowers and America will decline to third world status and civil unrest, possibly civil war, becomes inevitable.

Good! DHS Preparing To Arrest Leaders of Sanctuary Cities For Violating National Security Reader 01/16/2018 (Tue) 20:41:54 Id: 02617f [Preview] No. 5530 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.

Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.

Correct anons, all of those above you mentioned. And the corruption is bigger than most can even imagine. This entire system is rigged against us and the collusion runs deep. Slowly withdrawing yourself from the system, all the major institutions, and becoming self-sufficient and independent may be your only saving grace at this point.

I'm not saying you need to be a full blown basement dwelling NEET or anything. A man has to make a living, I understand. And you have to have money to properly prepare anyway. But if you want to survive you need to stop trusting the system and prepare accordingly and make sure you can survive when the access to modern luxuries we have today are cut off.

Also, stay away from fast food and big pharma. Two major industries used to cull the masses; profiting from sickness, addictions, dependency and later on unwanted intervention.

They Are Afraid! Twitter’s Censorship Algorithm Targets Breitbart Audience Reader 01/16/2018 (Tue) 16:44:18 Id: 2496e5 [Preview] No. 5518 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5368 ; >>>/news/5380 ; >>>/news/5412 ; >>>/news/5500

HERE IS A GREAT LIST OF ALTERNATIVE PLATFORMS: >>/5511

Twitter’s algorithms for political censorship target language and images — such as “America” and the American flag — associated with Breitbart News’s audience, said Project Veritas President James O’Keefe on Monday.

O’Keefe’s remarks on Twitter came during a SiriusXM Breitbart News Tonight interview with Breitbart News’s Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Censorial algorithms at Twitter, said O’Keefe, associate certain terms and sentiments with automated behaviors in an ostensible effort to silence bots across the platform: “[Twitter has] an algorithm that finds correlative words associated with people like the Breitbart audience. So if you post about guns, if you like the American flag, if you use the word ‘America,’ if you are a self-described ‘redneck,’ they actually target these people. These are not racists, or white supremacists, or Nazis — these are just moderate conservative ideas.”

Following 2016’s presidential election, Twitter deployed a political censorship campaign ostensibly dedicated to combating “fake news” it implied was responsible for the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.

Twitter surveils and monetizes — through automated probing and employee monitoring — information within direct messages sent by its users across its platform, said O’Keefe: “They’re sharing your girlfriends’ [and] wives’ private pictures you give, you know, people send direct messages on Twitter thinking they’re private, it’s actually not. They can store it in a database, and these engineers are bragging about selling it to advertisers, looking at them, sharing them with your exes and [others].”

O’Keefe commented on Twitter’s use of shadow banning and assorted measures to minimize targeted users’ engagement across its platform:

They have hundreds of engineers that mine through your private part pictures … That shadow banning video we released Thursday was probably one of the greatest censorship stories we’ve ever seen. This is the digital town square, and if they’re able to prevent you from sharing your information with your followers and friends, then how are you going to communicate your ideas? They’re trying to “ban a way of talking,” they say.

The biggest media story of the year broke last week. Yet, millions of Americans never heard the story because the mainstream media “shadow banned” it.
The story was Project Veritas’ expose’ of Twitter.

Undercover operatives filmed Twitter employees admitting bias against conservatives and revealing what conservatives have known for a long time. Twitter shadow bans conservatives.

Shadow banning means that a person can still post on Twitter, but no one sees it. The mainstream media did not cover this story. They were too busy repeating the unsubstantiated allegations that President Trump had referred to certain nations as, shall we say, “sewer holes.”

Project Veritas’ videos prove what conservatives have claimed for a very long time. Big tech is more than just biased against conservatives. Big tech takes direct action to stop conservative points of view.

It not only makes me sad, but downright angry that something this BIG, this BAD, is being completely and utterly swept under the rug like nothing ever happened.

And the US govt and the US media have the NERVE, the audacity, to bitch about other countries censoring unwanted media!? FUCK YOU ASSHOLE HYPOCRITES! Look in the fucking mirror you hypocritical sacks of shit!



TYRANNICAL Israeli Govt Introduces Death Penalty For So-called 'Fake News' Publishers Reader 01/16/2018 (Tue) 17:45:48 Id: 8c64c2 [Preview] No. 5522 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Do you hold any dissent or opposition against the Israeli establishment? If so, they want to KILL YOU for it!

Israel are introducing new legislation that will make publishing so-called ‘fake news’ a criminal offence – punishable by the death penalty.

The harsh new law, proposed by Communications Minister Minister Ayoub Kara, could see reporters and journalists who criticize the Israeli government over their treatment of Palestinians face prison or execution.

Haaretz.com reports: An Israeli minister called African migrants a “sanitary nuisance.” Communications Minister Ayoub Kara made the comments Friday during an event for the Likud party in Eilat. He said that asylum seekers who worked in the southern resort town were an issue for the tourism hot spot.

His words come against the backdrop of a controversial plan by the Israeli government to forcefully deport African asylum seekers from the country.

In the beginning of the month, the Population, Immigration and Border Authority announced that it was launching a campaign to rid Israel of its asylum seekers, saying that among the 35,000 of them currently living in the country most of the Eritrean and Sudanese nationals will have to leave immediately or face incarceration.

“In my previous role, I was in charge of regional cooperation to save tourism in Eilat. We brought here 1,500 from Akaba and thus we deported, without making any effort, the illegal workers who infiltrated here and were a sanitary nuisance.”

Kara went on to make another harsh statement in the speech he made, calling for media outlets that broadcast “fake news” to be given the death verdict. His words were received with a round of applause. The communications minister said: “Everyone who brings [sic] fake news, will bring upon themselves the death verdict and there won’t be fucking fake news anymore.”

That's the thing that bothers me about this: such a law and its victims of enforcement all depend on who is in charge of the country at that time, and what model of government that is in power considers to be "fake news."

Could you imagine the US govt having that power under Bush or Obama? Even if Trump considers CNN fake news, I'm sure many many other bureaucrats do not, and would consider anything conservative-minded to be fake news. Thus they could start rounding up people en mass like a bunch of mass murdering despots.

So this law is a double edged sword that will be stabbing people from both sides in Israel for years. Funny, the Jews officially turned the gas chambers on themselves!

Fuck that law coming to America. 1st Amendment! Freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Even if it is fake news, its worth protecting our fundamental rights.

The more bothersome part about this is that people think that you can eliminate fake news in general. Considering that we all have different view points and interpretation of what actually happened, the truth in this case is more or less subjective in a sense that it could be true to one person but false to another depending on the pretenses. That and like you said, if the government decides what's real and fake news, that probably won't end well.

This will all be for what they consider fake news, not actual fake news. After all, they're the ones best at lying and controlling the media.

Good! US Oil Industry Set To Break Record, Upend Global Trade Reader 01/16/2018 (Tue) 20:40:56 Id: bdb3ca [Preview] No. 5529 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Surging shale production is poised to push U.S. oil output to more than 10 million barrels per day - toppling a record set in 1970 and crossing a threshold few could have imagined even a decade ago.

And this new record, expected within days, likely won’t last long. The U.S. government forecasts that the nation’s production will climb to 11 million barrels a day by late 2019, a level that would rival Russia, the world’s top producer.

The economic and political impacts of soaring U.S. output are breathtaking, cutting the nation’s oil imports by a fifth over a decade, providing high-paying jobs in rural communities and lowering consumer prices for domestic gasoline by 37 percent from a 2008 peak.

Fears of dire energy shortages that gripped the country in the 1970s have been replaced by a presidential policy of global “energy dominance.”

“It has had incredibly positive impacts for the U.S. economy, for the workforce and even our reduced carbon footprint” as shale natural gas has displaced coal at power plants, said John England, head of consultancy Deloitte’s U.S. energy and resources practice.

U.S. energy exports now compete with Middle East oil for buyers in Asia. Daily trading volumes of U.S. oil futures contracts have more doubled in the past decade, averaging more than 1.2 billion barrels per day in 2017, according to exchange operator CME Group.

The U.S. oil price benchmark, West Texas Intermediate crude, is now watched closely worldwide by foreign customers of U.S. gasoline, diesel and crude.
