Worse than facial recognition – the next big privacy outrage – TruePublica

At TruePublica, we have warned about the rise of the UK's techno-Stasi-state where technology is harnessed and used against the civilian population without any debate or indeed any real legal framework. But if you think that facial recognition is bad enough, then the next outrage against our civil liberties is already being rolled out – again, with no public debate. This time, civil society is being tested with AI-driven lie detection systems – and this is very much worse than facial recognition with more challenging implications.

Global Poverty: How the Rich Eat the Poor and the World – Global Research

Unbelievably, the endlessly repeated assertion of the form that 'the poor are being lifted out of poverty in ever greater numbers' continues on untouched despite the hard evidence that, in fact, the poorer half of humanity has lost almost half of their wealth in just the last five years.

California's New 'Red Flag' Gun Law So Extreme ACLU Deems "Significant Threat To Civil Liberties" | Zero Hedge

Signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) after being vetoed twice by his Democratic predecessor Jerry Brown (who said that educators can work through family members or law enforcement if a restraining order is required), the gun confiscation bill is so broad that the ACLU said it "poses a significant threat to civil liberties" since guns can be seized from owners before they have an opportunity to contest the requests, and those making the requests may "lack the relationship or skills required to make an appropriate assessment," NBC San Diego reports.

Bill Gates Had a Much Closer Relationship With Epstein Than Admitted

DPR Frontline Village Resident Question to West: "Why do you now support (Ukrainian) Nazis?" | In Gaza

"We should go to Ukraine, which damaged my house? I'm Russian, this is Russian land. Everyone who knows history knows this. Of course I want to join Russia! In earlier times, before the war, I didn't care either way. But after all Ukraine did what it has done, absolutely I want to be a part of Russia. I can't imagine being back in Ukraine. Anyway, most of the people here would be killed as 'separatists'. A known Ukrainian politician (Boris Filatov) said: 'At the beginning, give them what they want, later hang them.'

Wi-Fi in Schools: Experimenting With the Next Generation

"The placement of Wi-Fi into schools around the country may well be a high-level threat to the health of our children as well being a threat to teachers and any very sensitive fetuses teachers may be carrying, as well," Pall writes.

Resistance to 5G: Roadblock to a High Tech Future or Warning of a Serious Health Risk?

But with so many small cells transmitting such high frequencies so close to people's homes, many experts fear that a frenzied push toward 5G lacks the consideration it deserves. More than 200 scientists and physicians from 35 countries have signed a call to action (pdf) demanding a moratorium on 5G deployment until its radiation levels are proven safe, particularly for children and pregnant women.

Sam Husseini: The Entire US Establishment Helped Lie Their Way into the Iraq War – American Herald Tribune

The entire US establishment helped lie their way into the Iraq War. More than that, the Katharine Gun case, which is featured in a new movie, Official Secrets, shows how the US attempted to blackmail other members of the Security Council by spying on them to try to get a second UN Security Council resolution authorizing the Iraq War. It shows the length to which they wanted to go to make sure that they got their war, both the US and Britain and others.

[…]

Biden, in his hearings, prevented meaningful scrutiny and dissent and the basic facts from being highlighted in terms of the false case that was being put forward for war in 2002 and in 2003.

And he has continued to lie about his own record. Biden recently has said all kinds of things: That he was opposed to the war as soon as it started, which is totally false. He continued to back it. He even said at one point that he was always against it, which is utterly ridiculous.

A Coalition of Support: Parliamentarians for Julian Assange – American Herald Tribune

If there was a time to fight legal eccentricity and viciousness, it is now. Just as Hicks and Habib faced complicity and a range of stretched and flexible legal categories, Assange faces that most elastic of instruments designed to stifle publishing and whistleblowing: the US Espionage Act of 1917. Should he be extradited from the United Kingdom and face the imperial goon squad in Washington, we will be spectators to that most depraved of state acts: the criminalization of publishing. Australia's parliamentarians, never the sharpest tools in the political box, are starting to stir with that realization.

The teacher recorded him and sent it to my wife and me and we said well, the only different thing we have been doing is using the CBD."

NBC & Clinton tried to kill Weinstein scoop – ex-journalist – Invidious (video)

In a new book, a former NBC News employee details the difficulties he faced, trying to get the network to run a sexual-abuse expose. Ronan Farrow accuses the channel of trying to kill his 2017 investigation into the now-disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. And claims too that even Hillary Clinton tried to get in the way.

Iran…..The World's Biggest Exporter of Terrorism? – American Herald Tribune

Like many Israel First mouthpieces in North America, Sigal Mandelker repeats often many of the slogans of the anti-Iran war party. Like John Bolton, she has tried to fan the flames of extreme Islamophobia and Iranophobia. She seeks to push the US government to lead a monumental war project that would target the Persian heartland. She labels Iran with the unsupported slogan that the Muslim-majority country is the "biggest exporter of terrorism in the world." Seldom do those who constantly repeat this mantra ever attempt to explain the assertion.

[…]

If anyone is a leading exporter of terrorism, it is the Saudi Arabian monarchy. The Houthis and other Yemeni citizens are prominent among the victims of the Saudi government with its weird missionary preoccupations aimed at spreading its own Takfiri form of Wahabi fundamentalism.

Saudi Arabia, the USA and Israel have much to do with the creation and backing of the al-Qaeda and ISIL/Daesh, proxy armies that consistently fought the armed forces of the elected governments of Syria, Iran, and Russia. The forces of the so-called "Islamic state" fought with the backing of Israel, the USA and many NATO countries. Iran itself has had to defend its own citizens from the incursion of ISIL/Daesh.

Iran has had to absorb a cyberwar directed at it by the National Security apparatus of the USA and Israel. This attack included the goal of crippling Iran's local system for generating electrical energy. Iran has had to absorb many ruthless assassinations of its nuclear scientists. Iran has to face the West's growing political support of a former Marxist organization that is much despised by many indigenous Persians. The violent group, MeK, is being cast in much the same role as was Ahmed Chalabi prior to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. MeK is being groomed to take up the levers of power in Iran following the regime change war being persistently promoted even by the likes of the CBS television network.

Telecoms Want to Hide Detailed 5G Installation Maps from The Public AND The Feds

The role of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry. Unfortunately, they've been doing the exact opposite for many years now. The "Race for 5G" has taken this to a whole new level of awful and the agency is being sued by many entities for promoting 5G and forcing its installation (see 1, 2, 3, 4).

Ellen DeGeneres and the Absolution of War Criminals – American Herald Tribune

Bipartisan "civility" is the real story behind the so-called "Resistance" to Donald Trump. War criminals have coalesced in opposition to Trump, not to stop his pro-billionaire tax policies or his wars against Venezuela, Iran, or Yemen, but to render the so-called "outsider" president a complete servant of the bipartisan agenda of endless war. War criminals such as George W. Bush, James Clapper, William Kristol, and a host of others have seen their reputations rehabilitated by the corporate Democratic Party. Millions of people marched against the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan in 2003. In 2019, the white liberal elite feel more than comfortable hugging and embracing the very architects of those wars so long as it leads to a weakened Trump Administration and a more "civil" rule of the rich.

Moreover, the WHO reported, 2018 saw "an unprecedented 432 attacks against healthcare in the West Bank and Gaza Strip".

Devonshire, UK Halts The Installation of 5G Over Serious Health Concerns – Collective Evolution

One of the main reasons why we could be seeing a drastic rise in a variety of diseases and ailments is in the area of neuropsychiatric disorders. A study entitled "Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression," published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy, outlines this quite clearly. It's one of thousands of peer-reviewed studies raising multiple concerns in regards to this type of technology.

Water Poisoning Alerts Hidden From Public

In a 2013 report,2 the American Society for Civil Engineers warned that most of the drinking water infrastructure across the nation is "nearing the end of its useful life," yet little has been done to address our crumbling infrastructure in the years since.

Making matters worse, recent media coverage make it clear that many toxic water incidences are covered up and hidden from the public, which at times has had lethal consequences.

Palestinian Plumbers Refuse to Charge Israeli, She's a Holocaust Survivor

"When we got there, we saw there was a large blast of water and we started fixing it. At some stage, while working, my brother Salim started to talk to Rosa about her life. She told us she's 95, a Holocaust survivor, and that she has a daughter. Her life story touched my heart. At that moment, I decided I won't take a cent from her."
