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.
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.
The 66-year-old counted key figures in the global elite among his friends and associates, including politicians like former President Bill Clinton and current President Donald Trump, U.K. royal Prince Andrew, actor Kevin Spacey, Nobel laureates Murray Gell-Mann and Frank Wilczek, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, billionaire Les Wexner, comedian Woody Allen, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, and innumerable other public figures.
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.'
"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.
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.
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.
