HOW YOUR PHONE IS USED TO TRACK YOU, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

SOURCE: NY TIMES
As researchers and journalists try to understand how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting people’s behavior, they have repeatedly relied on location information from smartphones. The data allows for an expansive look at the movements of millions of people, but it raises troublesome questions about privacy.

In several articles, The New York Times has used location data provided by a company called Cuebiq, which analyzes data for advertisers and marketers. This data comes from smartphone users who have agreed to share their locations with certain apps, such as ones that provide weather alerts or information on local gas stations. Cuebiq helps app makers use technology like GPS to determine the location of people’s phones, and in turn some of the app makers provide data to Cuebiq for it to analyze.

ISRAEL LAUNCHES WEEK-LONG BOMBING CAMPAIGN IN GAZA AMID ONGOING WAR CRIMES INVESTIGATION

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Last Monday night Israeli fighter jets executed airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip for the ninth night in a row in an act that may be another on Israel’s long list of possible war crimes.

Israeli leaders characterized the actions as retaliatory, naming Gazan “incendiary balloons” and “riots” as justification.

This is just the latest in what mainstream media generally depicts as a “protracted conflict” between “the militant group Hamas and Israel,” after “months of calm” (5 Gazans have been killed in 2020; Israel has shot at farmers and fishermen hundreds of times; no Israelis have been killed).

The plight of Palestinians in Gaza, a population of almost two million crammed into a region the size of Detroit, has been hidden from the view of most, even as the US funds its occupier with over $10 million a day in military aid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has devolved into a cruelly apartheid theocracy with nuclear weapons; what could possibly go wrong in the region henceforward?!?

A great deal, my friends; a very great deal.

Saudi Arabia Breaks Silence, Tentatively Embraces Israel-UAE Peace Deal

As the steward of the two Muslim holy cities (Mecca & Medina) - cities where no non-Muslims are allowed - Saudi Arabia has an image to maintain as an ally in the regional struggle to support the Palestinians in their struggle against Israel. But in another sign of just how significant Jared Kushner's accomplishment actually was, it appears the desert petro-kingdom is finally ready to make an important step toward publicly accepting Israel as a neighbor and friend.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Netanyahu has made it quite clear, that his annexation will continue to move forward; just perhaps at a slower pace than the speed at which he originally wanted this accomplished.

I am as of yet unsure that this move will find Palestinians "forced to the table" for other concessions.

Melbourne Authorities To Use Surveillance Drones To Catch People Not Wearing Masks

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Authorities in Melbourne, Australia will use high-tech surveillance drones to catch people outside not wearing masks as well as to scan for vehicles that are in violation of curfew by being more than 5 km from home.

The drones will also be used to ensure skate parks and playgrounds remain empty.

The surveillance devices can be flown up to a distance of 7km and produce images so clear they can “read a vehicle’s number plate from 500 meters away.”

Privacy advocates are concerned that there is no sunset clause on the use of such technology and the drones could continue to be used to spy on citizens after the pandemic ends.

7 News Melbourne spoke to two residents who said they weren’t worried because they were behaving and had “nothing to hide.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the dystopian and draconian "new normal" down under!!

But the question remains; after the pandemic is over, what happens then in Australia?!? Will these procedures go away when the pandemic has gone?!?

Right now, I wouldn't bet against that.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern warns against expecting border perfection as troops rolled in

The Prime Minister is warning against expecting perfection at the border as NZ Defence Force troops are brought in to tighten the regime which has seen two strains of Covid-19 infections escape.

Jacinda Ardern has also brought in two top advisors to spearhead the testing strategy after failings saw frontline border workers go untested.

But she has been sideswiped by her coalition partner this morning, with NZ First leader Winston Peters saying he'd been pushing for the military to lead border protection efforts before the first lockdown - for a fifth of the price of hotels.

It comes as epidemiologist Sir David Skegg is calling on the Ministry of Health to release data on the number of people infected by this outbreak who had previously tried to get a test but were denied one.

The Global Elite Have Far More Control Over Us Than Most People Would Dare To Imagine

No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, you probably agree that the global elite have too much power and influence. It has been said that “money is power”, and today that seems to be more true than ever. Those at the very, very top of the pyramid dictate the rules of the game for the rest of us, and there isn’t too much that the rest of us can do about it. When we talk about how the global elite dominate our lives, the focus tends to be on how they influence national governments, but the truth is that is one of the areas where the global elite have the least control.

American Politics: Send in the Clowns for the Circus Is in Town

By Edward Curtin

The French writer Guy Debord called this The Society of the Spectacle.

For many months now, all eyes have been directed to the Covid-19 propaganda show with Fauci and Gates, and their mainstream corporate media mouthpieces, striking thunderbolts in the storm to scare the unknowing audience into submission so the transformation of the Great Global Reset, led by the World Economic Forum, Wall Street, the International Monetary Fund, et al can proceed smoothly.

Meanwhile, as the circus rolls along, far away and out of mind, shit happens:

With more than 400 military bases equipped with nuclear weapons surrounding China, the United States military continues its encirclement of China and China enters a “state of siege.”

King Joe and the Round Table: Biden’s America in a Multipolar World

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article walks the American people, and the world, back to the grim reality that with every Presidential election cycle happening in this country every 4 years, Americans actually have no real choice regarding the leadership of this country; the war party always wins, every single time.

Israel bombs Gaza after warning Hamas it risks war

Israeli warplanes bombed the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip overnight after Palestinians fired a rocket into southern Israel, the army said.

The latest exchange came as Israel warned Hamas it was risking "war" by failing to stop fire balloons being launched across the border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu could certainly use a distraction right now, between the stalled annexation; his corruption trial; and his horrific debacle at dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic; perhaps this is how he sees that distraction playing out right now.

The Great Election Fraud: Will Our Freedoms Survive Another Election?

For the next three months, Americans will be dope-fed billions of dollars’ worth of political propaganda aimed at keeping them glued to their television sets and persuading them that 1) their votes count and 2) electing the right candidate will fix everything that is wrong with this country. -- Incredible, isn’t it, that in a country of more than 330 million people, we are given only two choices for president? How is it that in a country teeming with creative, intelligent, productive, responsible, moral people, our vote too often comes down to pulling the lever for the lesser of two evils? -- The system is rigged, of course.

New Zealand rolls out mandatory coronavirus quarantine camps, and its disarmed population is now powerless to stop it

New restrictions have been decreed by New Zealand’s female prime minister, who is now demanding that all residents be tested for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) or else be forcibly quarantined and confined to government concentration camps.

With an arrogant smile on her face, a power-tripped Jacinda Ardern took to video chat to announce publicly that the only way New Zealanders will ever again be free to go about their lives as “normal” is to get tested in accordance with her new orders.

“I’ve got (sic) a number of questions about people … what do we do if someone refuses to be tested? Well, they can’t now,” Ardern stated, dripping with mockery.

“If someone refuses in our facilities to be tested, they have to keep staying,” she added. “So they won’t be able to leave after 14 days. They have to stay on for another 14 days. So it’s a pretty good incentive.”

De Blasio Barks That People Don’t Need Handguns; They Have The Police

How does de Blasio respond to reality? Simple; like all Radical Left Marxist and Anarchist crazies he denies reality, and huffs and puffs in rage that millions of rational New York City residents would question his judgment, obsequiously bowing to the Mob that is as crazy and as obsessed as he is with tearing down a Nation that the founders placed their life on the line to create and that millions of Americans thereafter placed their life on the line to sustain.

The Nationwide Poll We Believe – You Must Protect Yourself

We came out of this poll wiser than we went in. Millions of new gun owners found out how expensive and inconvenient the government made it to be an honest gun owner. Their personal experience contradicts what the news media and Democrat politicians said. The Democrat national convention is running as I write this, and the Democrat party platform is strongly biased against honest gun owners. Both the presumed Democrat presidential candidate and the vice-presidential candidate have come out for mandatory gun confiscation. How will that play with these new gun owners, particularly the many minority women living in our inner cities?

EU announces sanctions for high-ranking officials responsible for brutal crackdown in Belarus and rejects Alexander Lukashenko’s election victory

The EU today announced sanctions for high-ranking officials responsible for the brutal crackdown in Belarus and rejected Alexander Lukashenko's election victory.

European Council President Charles Michel said that the August 9 election - which saw 80 percent support for the strongman leader - was 'neither free nor fair' and that the EU does not recognise the result.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel - who was yesterday warned by Russia's Vladimir Putin not to interfere in the former Soviet domain - said: 'There is no doubt that there were massive rule violations in the election.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; what is Putin planning to do, if it appears that it that Alexander Lukashenko will fall?!?

That will most probably push Belarus very firmly into the orbit of the west, but what is Putin prepared to do to stop it?!?

Soros-backed “bioethicist” says people who refuse coronavirus vaccines should lose their jobs or be imprisoned

Dov Fox, a Soros fellow who currently works as director of the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics at the SanDiego.edu, has come out to claim that people who refuse vaccination for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) could lose their jobs or even be sent to jail.

According to Fox, who is said to be a bioethics “expert,” it is completely legal and constitutional for state governments to fine, imprison, or deny employment to people who say no to the jabs, no matter the reason.

They're Angry, Not Stupid! Why Trump Is Likely To Win Again

Authored by Thomas Greene via Medium.com

Our Fiasco
They elected Donald once and they will try to again. He is scornful and vicious. He despises openly. He snarls and barks. He will make a pig’s breakfast of everything he touches, but here’s the thing everyone misses: educated elites will feel the hardship he causes more acutely than the millions of workers who have already adapted to pittance wages, dead-end careers, and chronic disrespect. They’ve endured two decades of it; they can cope. They’re betting that liberal snowflakes like me can’t.

AstraZeneca to be exempt from coronavirus vaccine liability claims in most countries

(Reuters) - AstraZeneca has been granted protection from future product liability claims related to its COVID-19 vaccine hopeful by most of the countries with which it has struck supply agreements, a senior executive told Reuters.

With 25 companies testing their vaccine candidates on humans and getting ready to immunise hundred millions of people once the products are shown to work, the question of who pays for any claims for damages in case of side effects has been a tricky point in supply negotiations.

Morrison walks back comments on potential Covid vaccine, saying 'it is not going to be compulsory'

The health minister Greg Hunt says the federal government will not “force vaccinations on any Australian” and Scott Morrison has clarified they would not be compulsory after experts expressed concern that earlier talk of “mandatory” vaccination might drive hesitant Australians away.

The prime minister announced on Tuesday night that a letter of intent had been signed with the British pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca to supply Australians with the University of Oxford Covid-19 vaccine if it clears clinical trials.

Barry Soper - Hard to justify NZ unlawful lockdown

Hats off to Andrew Borrowdale. Who is he, you may well ask? He's a Wellington lawyer - in fact he used to write laws for Parliament.

He was so agitated about the lack of legal grunt behind the country being locked down on March 26 that he took a case to the High Court to challenge it - and today he won.

Borrowdale didn't argue about the wisdom of people staying at home, but he did argue about the Government's right to order them to do so.

*At least we have some journos that get it.*

Victoria's failed lockdown deadline

Today was the day that Melbourne's original stage 3 lockdown was supposed to end.

But daily new case numbers are higher now than when it started.

It was on July 8 that Victoria reimposed stay-at-home restrictions for six weeks in metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire in a bid to slow a rapid spread of coronavirus.

Back then, the state had just recorded 191 new cases, a number Premier Daniel Andrews said was "unacceptably" high.

The measures were supposed to stomp out the virus in six weeks, which brings us to today.

*Left wing Labour led. Do I need to say more?? Just like NZ...*

Australia's Scott Morrison plans to make vaccine 'as mandatory as possible' once it proves safe

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he intends to make a Covid-19 vaccine as "mandatory as you can possibly make it" for all Australians once it becomes available.

It emerged today that the Morrison Government has confirmed a landmark agreement with drug giant AstraZeneca to manufacture one of the world's most promising coronavirus vaccines currently being developed by Oxford University researchers, news.com.au reports.

If it's proved safe to use, Prime Minister Scott Morrison believes the agreement will ensure Australians will be among the first countries in the world to secure the jab, revealing this morning it could be available to Aussies as soon as early next year.

*Can you say Dictatorship?? I knew you could!*
*I wonder when are the Aust public are going to be told that AstraZenca will have imdmenity for injury caused by the vaccine?*

Lockdown illegal for first nine days, NZ High Court finds, but says action was justified

The first nine days of the national lockdown were illegal but justified, the High Court has ruled.

New Zealanders were not actually required by law to stay at home in their bubbles until April 3, more than a week into lockdown.

"Even as this country returns to a state of semi-lockdown, there is one thing on which most commentators are agreed. The decisions taken by the New Zealand Government in March this year to "go hard and go early" were the right ones," said the High Court decision, released this afternoon.

"Even in times of emergency, however, and even when the merits of the Government response are not widely contested, the rule of law matters."

NEC gets to run the system for 10 years till 2029, under a contract worth at least $4m with the Department of Internal Affairs, that is mentioned briefly in a parliamentary report.

NeoFace will be used from next January.

Belarusian Media Publish Alleged Opposition Program to Move Minsk Away From Russia Toward West

Belarusian state television has publicized what it says is the platform of the united opposition, with the document, the authenticity of which has yet to be independently verified, said to include elements which would dramatically weaken Belarus's relationship with Russia and move Minsk toward closer relations with the West and NATO.

The program, dubbed the ‘Emergency Package of Reforms for Belarus’, is said to have been approved by the main opposition candidate, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, during the election campaign. According to Belarus 1 TV, the document was recently pulled offline, but remains accessible in Google’s cache.

The program purportedly proposes abolishing the Union State with Russia and erecting a proper border with the country, leaving the Eurasian Union and Customs Union, and withdrawing Belarus from the Collective Security Treaty Organization military alliance, which in addition to Russia and Belarus includes Armenia, Kazakhstan,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't know if Russia's President Putin can stop this from happening, but the way this is framed, makes one think that the US, NATO, and Europe are squarely behind this move toward the West, and away from Russia.

But we have a companion piece, from rt.com, with the following headline:

As EU talks sanctions, Putin warns Merkel & Macron foreign interference in Belarus’ affairs is ‘unacceptable’ & could backfire

Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot: Hammering Away at the Second Amendment

SHE HERSELF DESCRIBED THE SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS THAT ENCOURAGED RESIDENTS TO COME DOWNTOWN AND LOOT, THE CARAVANS OF CARS, “U-HAUL TRUCKS AND CARGO VANS,” AND LOOTERS ARMED WITH “SOPHISTICATED EQUIPMENT USED TO CUT METAL.” THESE “PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO FAIRLY QUICKLY TAKE OUT CASH REGISTERS, ATM MACHINES, CUT THROUGH METAL GRATE, AND TO GET BEYOND AND BEHIND SECURITY SYSTEMS THAT ARE PRETTY SOPHISTICATED. THAT’S NOT YOUR AVERAGE LOOTER.” -- That’s not a failure of gun laws, either, but if your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

MANDATORY “quarantine camps” were just rolled out in New Zealand, a globalist testing ground for the mass extermination of humanity

After outlawing firearms possession by citizens, New Zealand’s government is now exploiting its power monopoly to roll out mandatory quarantine camps for people who might be infected with COVID-19. And some people will never be allowed to leave those camps, the NZ Prime Minister insists.

The new medical fascism rules will ensnare family members of people who test positive for COVID-19, even though nearly all the testing being conducted around the world is unreliable and routinely produces false positives. It’s now clear that the coronavirus pandemic is being weaponized by globalist-minded bureaucrats to enslave the masses in preparation for a global vaccine depopulation initiative.

Doctors Lay Out Plan to ‘Punish’ People Who Refuse Coronavirus Vaccine: ‘There Is No Alternative’

Simply put, getting vaccinated is going to be our patriotic duty,’ and America should consider making it difficult for the unvaccinated to participate in society, three doctors wrote.

***

A coronavirus vaccine should be mandatory, and tax penalties, higher insurance premiums, and denial of many government and private services ought to be considered for those refusing the shot, two doctors and an attorney argued in USA Today on Thursday.

“[W]hile the measures that will be necessary to defeat the coronavirus will seem draconian, even anti-American to some, we believe that there is no alternative. Simply put, getting vaccinated is going to be our patriotic duty,” wrote Dr. Michael Lederman, Dr. Stuart Youngner, and Maxwell J. Mehlman.

There is no “alternative to vaccine-induced herd immunity in a pandemic,” they argued. “Broad induction of immunity in the population by immunization will be necessary to end this pandemic.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You had to see this coming, didn't you?!?

What I want to see happen, on live national TV, is for these doctors to have their kids, and grandkids vaccinated first, with no escape from the vaccine actually being the vaccine, and not sterile water.... and wait for 4 months.

IF, after 4 months those children or grandchildren are neither sickened nor killed by the vaccine, I may think about getting it; but not until.

And of course, the inevitable question which has to be asked; how much are these doctors financially invested in those companies vying to create the first successful vaccine?!? And are they betting their money... on something which will barely be tested, before being "deployed" on a hapless population?!?

Yes, Democrats DO want to take our guns away and Kamala Harris admits she will violate the Constitution to do it

It should be noted, as Breitbart News reported, Harris never really has discussed the details about how she would use executive authority as president to ‘get assault weapons’ off the streets and out of our hands. -- But based on the Constitution, which plainly states the right to be armed “shall not be infringed,” it seems pretty clear whatever she would try to do wouldn’t be legal. -- Still, she will try. She has said so.

Kamala Harris Choice Creates Most Anti-Gun Presidential Ticket in History

Between presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s calls for firearm confiscation and the draft Democratic Party Platform, the 2020 Democratic ticket was already shaping up to be the most anti-Second Amendment in history. With Biden’s, or his team of able-minded handlers’, choice of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for the vice-presidential slot, the Biden campaign, and the Democratic Party have cemented this ignominious distinction.

Viral Shadowgate Documentary Deleted By Facebook And YouTube After Film-Maker's Arrest

As we detailed yesterday, journalist Millie Weaver was charged with alleged “robbery, tampering with evidence, obstruction justice, and domestic violence” after police officers apparently from a local SWAT team showed up at her Ohio home Friday morning and took her to the Portage County Jail in Ravenna.

The Portage County Sheriff’s Office later confirmed that there was a “secret indictment” against Weaver but refused to give further details.

A woman claiming to be Weaver’s mother later commented that there had been a family dispute over a $50 cellphone on April 25, but that she had almost immediately dropped all charges against Weaver and expressed shock that her daughter had been arrested.

The arrest occurred on the eve of Weaver releasing Shadowgate, a documentary that purports to expose the “operational role the shadow government played behind the scenes carrying out the coup against President Trump.”

Discussion of Wikileaks or any “Hacked Information” Banned Under New YouTube Rules

Social media giant YouTube announced yesterday a host of new measures it says are aimed at preventing any interference in the upcoming presidential elections. Chief among the list it wrote on its blog, is “removing content that contains hacked information, the disclosure of which may interfere with democratic processes, such as elections and censuses.” An example it gives, would be deleting “videos that contain hacked information about a political candidate.”

It also promised to “raise up authoritative voices” when it comes to current events and politics by changing its algorithm to show users more credible channels and “reduce the spread of harmful misinformation and borderline content.” Example channels that produce authoritative content, it tells readers, includes Fox News and CNN. It also noted it would expand information panels underneath videos.

Opinion: How to spot a conspiracy theory and how to contain it

They don't wear tin foils hats anymore, you know.

It used to be easy to spot conspiracy theorists - they decked themselves out in tin foil, wore turquoise tracksuits in the case of David Icke and, just generally, stood out.

Now, however, they truly do live among us, hidden in the crowd and able to spout their drivel freely. Thanks to social media, that drivel gets shared faster than the average viral contagion, it's just a shame we can't wear a face mask and be protected from the rubbish people would have us believe.

From stories about 5G, vaccine plans, secret circles of the world's elite being involved in incredibly nasty crimes, the Illuminati, quarantine breaches and the like, the current wave of conspiracy theories makes my great granny's staunch belief the moon landing was faked look quite reasonable, in retrospect.

NZ Pokeno residents forced to travel 40km to Huntly for closest large supermarket

Pokeno residents forced to travel 40km(25miles) for groceries after being denied access to their closest supermarket say a new one in their town can't come soon enough.

Residents in both Pokeno and Tuakau are feeling the full effect of living in the Waikato fringe as they enjoy the freedoms of alert level 2 while their workplaces and schools remain under the tighter level 3 restrictions.

These north Waikato residents - whose towns were re classed from being in the Auckland region to the Waikato region in 2010 - are being turned away at police checkpoints and told they cannot access their closest large supermarket 15km away in Pukekohe, forcing many to travel 41km up the Waikato Expressway to Countdown Huntly.

Police State NZ - Police add more checkpoints following gridlock on State Highway 1 today

Police are adding more Covid checkpoints to the Auckland region, just as cars and trucks travelling on State Highway 1 from Waikato to Auckland came to a virtual standstill south of the Bombay Hills earlier today.

Video footage showed the traffic stretching back south of Pokeno and moving at a snail's pace towards a Covid police checkpoint at Bombay.

In a statement issued this afternoon, police said they had increased the number of checkpoints in South Auckland by three to eight.

"We are asking drivers to have as much documentation as possible ready to show police at the checkpoints. If you do not have this, then unfortunately police will have to turn you around," the spokeswoman said.

*Read the last paragraph, "SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS OR ELSE!!" & say we are not in a police state. When I say this to others, their eyes glaze over...*

YouTube Will Ban Videos that Could ‘Interfere with the Election’

YouTube has announced new updates to its policies relating to videos containing information obtained through hacking and other content that may “interfere” with upcoming U.S. elections.

CNET reports that Google’s video-sharing platform YouTube has announced new updates to its policies relating to deceptive content on its platform as it aims to prevent the spread of information that could “interfere” with the upcoming U.S. elections.

YouTube is the world’s largest video platform with more than 2 billion users a month, it will now reportedly begin banning videos containing information that was obtained through hacking and could affect elections or censuses. This leads many to question whether information obtained from sources such as WikiLeaks is allowed on the platform.

Israel Not Giving Up On Annexing West Bank, Netanyahu Says, After Historic UAE Deal

Via AlMasdarNews.com,

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he has not agreed to remove the issue of the extension of Israeli sovereignty over lands in the West Bank and will not relinquish it.

Netanyahu said during a speech on Thursday evening, “The American president asked me to wait on the extension of Israeli sovereignty over more lands.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Feeling more than a little betrayed, Mr. President, when you made the comment that the Israel/UAE deal was going to prevent annexation by Israel of the West Bank?!?

President Donald Trump said in a surprise announcement Thursday that Israel and the United Arab Emirates had agreed to normalize relations and that, as part of the deal, Israel would not annex parts of the West Bank it currently occupies.

Welcome to a much clearer understanding of your greatest "frenemy" yet, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and I am sorry if you are so blind that you cannot see this; the guy just "relieved himself" in your face, geopolitically, and told you "it was raining".

Belarus President Moves Air Assault Brigade To Western Border In Response To NATO Drills; Says Russia Will Provide Security Assistance

Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko said that an air assault brigade would move to Belarus’ Western border in response to NATO exercises in neighboring nations, even as the country reels from massive anti-government protests which Lukashenko has dubbed a "color revolution" orchestrated by foreign agents. Lukashenko also said that Russian President Vladimir Putin promised him to help securing safety of Belarus if needed, state news agency Belta reported.

Speaking on state TV, Lukashenko said he was “worried” that NATO was carrying out military exercises in Poland and Lithuania, which he views as an arms build-up on Belarus’ borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't think Lukashenko's attempt at misdirection is going to help him here, and I really have to wonder about that public statement regarding Russia's assurance that it will "assist him", to try to put the blame on NATO for all of Belarus’ economic and geopolitical instability.

Conservative Journalist Arrested & Jailed Ahead Of 'ShadowGate' Documentary Release

Update: While weaver's arrest appears to be for unrelated charges according to the Daily Dot...

When speaking to the Daily Dot via phone Saturday morning, a Portage County Jail administrator said that Weaver is being charged with alleged “robbery, tampering with evidence, obstruction justice, and domestic violence.”

When asked about the claim that Weaver was arrested for exposing the deep state, the administrator laughed. Conspiracy theorists believe a type of shadow government exists and is working to undermine President Donald Trump and his agenda.

Meaww also reports Weaver’s husband was arrested.

...we still can't help but wonder about the curious timing?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question which must be asked is, what knowledge did she and her husband had, that made them so dangerous to certain parts of the Establishment?!?

The practice of issuing concealed carry permits only to those in the “inner circle,” whether they be city employees, campaign donors, or other politically connected elite, is apparently a widespread problem in “may issue” states, and one that gun rights activists have been working hard to expose.

Mainstream media: Any criticism of Kamala Harris is “racism and sexism”

The fake news brigade is absolutely gushing over the appointment of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s official running mate, highlighting all of her female-ness and ethnic-ness every chance it gets in order to set the stage for Kamala to become the left’s latest untouchable.

Escobar On Battleground Beirut: Western Colony Or Back To The East?

Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Asia Times

Facing oh so timely color revolution-style “protests”, the current Lebanese government led by Prime Minister Diab has already resigned. Even before the port tragedy, Beirut had requested a $10 billion line of credit from the IMF – denied as long as trademark, neoliberal Washington consensus “reforms” were not implemented: radical slashing of public expenses, mass layoffs, across the board privatization.

Post-tragedy, President Emmanuel Macron – who’s not even capable of establishing a dialogue with the Gilets Jaunes/Yellow Vests in France – has opportunistically jumped in full neocolonial mode to pose as “savior” of Lebanon, as long as the same “reforms”, of course, are implemented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Lebanese people deserve far better than what they have received from whatever the next government shapes up to be, and I hope they get a government who will put the needs and concerns of the Lebanese people first, second, and third.

Inside The Center For Cancel Culture And Digital Hypocrisy, Part 1

Authored by Iain Davis via Off-Guardian.org,

The Center For Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) are a UK based organisation who have misspelled “centre” in their name. Perhaps they have opted for the U.S spelling in the hope of selling their peculiar brand of morally bankrupt censorship to the American propaganda market.

The Anti-Vaxx Industry, is a propaganda leaflet with two main objectives. The first is to create a false dichotomy in the public imagination and the second is to build a public-private censorship grid in anticipation of forthcoming government legislation. This is proposed to censor legitimate scientific opinion and evidence based debate on a wide range of issues the government and its corporate partners would rather silence. Including any questioning of vaccines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not an anti-vaxxer; when Mike got home from the hospital, after a two week stay due to pneumonia, I reached out to my sister-in-law, a wonderful NP, who suggested that I get a Pneumovax vaccination, which I did immediately.

That being said, when I take a vaccine, I want it to have been on the market for awhile, to be sure that I am not looking at horrific side-effects.

Please remember; in the unhinged, surveilled, state of Amerika, pharmaceutical companies are held harmless and indemnified against prosecution if a vaccine sickens or kills. That was in the Homeland Security Act, under the Bush administration, which was later solidified under separate legislation.

I think Americans are justified in waiting a bit before going down to get the "latest and greatest jab", to understand, as best they can, what the negative ramifications of such a vaccine may be.

Aucklanders leave lockdown to bask in sunny Saturday weather

Aucklanders who have flocked to the beach and parks during Level 3 lockdown have been told they are putting themselves and their families at risk.

During the first weekend day of the latest lockdown period, scores of people headed to beaches and parks around the region to enjoy sunny weather and warm temperatures.

Large crowds could be seen at beaches in Takapuna, Kohimarama and St Heliers - with not many heeding the Prime Minister's advice to wear a mask while out in public.

*But, but Aunty Cindy told you to stay home!! Naughty children!!*

The English Language and Grammar are Racist! Get Rid of Them!

While this agenda has not yet asserted its dominance over the literary canon or the accepted norms and style for serious writing and communication, it has in fact had tremendous success in modes of communication such as Twitter and Instagram, which increasingly control cultural expression. And one can argue that it is just a matter of time before the swirling linguistic revolution, with its already de facto acceptance and everyday normalcy, reaches the college classroom and the publishing houses, as well as the media. Indeed, the entertainment industry no longer resists it to any great extent.

Democrat-run states need to bail themselves out, not demand that someone else foot the bill

Pelosi has repeatedly made it clear that neither she nor her colleagues are willing to make any kind of deal until and unless the cash starts flowing to leftist states. In essence, this is holding the rest of the country hostage, including the tens of millions of people who are still without work and struggling simply to make ends meet. -- This continued stonewalling by Pelosi and the Democrats is hurting everyday Americans, in other words – but do they care? The answer is: of course not. They only care about themselves, and since they utterly failed to balance the budgets in their own collapsing states, they now want Trump to swoop in and save the day with taxpayer money from other states.

How Would You Feel About A Nationwide Mask Mandate That Forced You To Wear A Mask In Public At All Times?

Once again, I don’t think that it is wrong to wear a mask at all.  In fact, for many people I believe that it is the correct choice. -- But if we let them mandate masks, it will just be a matter of time before they start mandating that we all take the coming COVID-19 vaccine.  Already, many in the mainstream media are quite distressed about the fact that polls have shown that most Americans don’t plan to get the vaccine at all.

PROPAGANDA & FEAR ALERT: MSM SAYS “MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE SHUTDOWNS ARE NEEDED”

Mainstream media outlets continue to do their jobs as the ruling class pulls the strings. The New York Times is now claiming that “much more aggressive shutdowns” are needed or COVID-19 will kill one million Americans.

Isn’t this fear-mongering getting old? It should be abundantly clear that those who are desperate to keep their power are needing the public to be afraid of everything. The article published by The New York Times cites no source, but Americans, by and large, have rejected logic and reason in exchange for horrifying levels of fear.

The editorial warns, “well over a million” Americans “may ultimately die” from COVID-19. The paper does not cite a source for that estimate, which seems highly implausible based on the death toll so far, projections for the next few months, the gap between total infections and confirmed cases, and a crude case-fatality rate that continues to fall.

New World NZ store with facial recognition cameras reverses mask policy

An Auckland supermarket is reversing policy that asked customers to remove their face masks so they could be better scanned by the store's facial recognition software.

The Papakura branch of New World had been enforcing the policy, asking those wearing masks to remove them and put them back on once they were inside, to help combat theft.

Foodstuffs, operators of New World, Pak'N Save and Four Square, have now apologised for inconveniencing customers with a policy that was out of step with public health messaging.

Concern had been raised online about the policy, with one local woman complaining that a family member had been targeted and asked to remove his mask when others were allowed to walk straight into the store.

Ashley Church: Five ways the NZ Government has put the screws on landlords

OPINION: Last week, during a TV interview, I made an offhand observation that the Government is the most anti-landlord administration in our nation’s history. That comment kicked off a fierce debate and led to a number of commentators and political blogs wading in to defend the Government.

So was my claim unfair? Not at all – and I stand by it.

The fact is, the overwhelming bulk of rental accommodation in New Zealand is provided by private landlords, who collectively own around 440,000 rental properties. Housing New Zealand owns another 65,000, councils own around 12,000, and non-government social housing organisations own 8,000.

These policies are inequitable and will inevitably lead to higher rents, an exodus of investors and fewer rental properties at precisely the time when we need them the most. Few things could be more certain.

*Like I said earlier, our Labour Govt under Aunty Cindy is socialising private property rentals.*

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern - NZ to maintain current lockdown settings for 12 more days

New Zealand will maintain its current lockdown settings for 12 more days.

That would mean the current settings will be in place for 14 days - or one full incubation period.

The current settings will remain until 11.59pm on August 26, but Cabinet will review the settings on August 21, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has just announced.

"There is nothing to suggest we need to move to a level 4 lockdown at this stage."

Auckland shouldn't be at level 3 for any longer than necessary.

She said the aim was to restore level 1 freedoms as quickly as possible.

*Gee, I didn't see that one coming...Does anyone really believe that this will end? Aunty Cindy is linked to the Rockefeller Foundation & is committed to communisim/socialism because like a lot on the left, think that they know what's best for us.*

How a Society Unravels

Phase 2– Destabilization

The intent is to create a massive government permeating society and becoming intrusive in the lives of its citizens. This can take from two to five years to perform, again with the active support of academia pushing youth in this direction. Here, entitlements and benefits are promised to the populace to encourage their support. Basically, they are bribing the people to accept their programs.

Phase 3 – Crisis

This is a major step lasting up to six weeks and involves a revolutionary change of power. This is where an alarming event upsets and divides the country thereby creating panic among the citizens.

Phase 4 – Normalization

The final stage is where the populace finally acquiesces and begins to assimilate communism. This can take up to two decades to complete.

'Madness in Melbourne... Tyranny without limit': American TV host launches a scathing attack on 'police state' Victoria and claims people in the Soviet Union had more freedom

An American TV host has launched a scathing attack on Daniel Andrews for implementing tough coronavirus restrictions, claiming people in the Soviet Union had more freedom than those in Melbourne.

Fox News host and political commentator Dan Bongino used his Friday show to slam the Victorian premier over the state's stage four lockdown.

Under restrictions brought in to curb the spread of COVID-19, people in Melbourne are not allowed outside between 8pm and 5am, can be fined $200 for failing to wear a face mask and are limited to one hour of exercise each day.

The former secret service agent cited an article from the American Institute for Economic Research titled 'Madness in Melbourne' by Jeffrey A. Tucker which described the restrictions as 'tyranny without limit'.

2020-2021 Public Schools: The Accelerated Indoctrination and Health Destroying System of Child Control Due to a ‘Virus’

Depending on which phase is claimed by the school district in question, protocols will be very invasive, will be based on isolation, will include constant washing and chemical-based disinfecting solutions, and even government-created student hygiene education, which is anything but healthy. Washing and ‘sanitizing’ before every entry and exit of a classroom will be mandated as well. Bleach solutions will be used to sanitize constantly throughout the day, and all students will be forced to ‘sanitize’ every time they leave a classroom. Distancing will be mandatory and constant. Temperature checks will happen upon arrival and throughout the day when ‘necessary.’ Any movement of students inside or outside the school will be administered by ‘movement specialists,’ if that nonsense is even believable?

SUPPRESSED: Facebook censored over 100 million posts for so-called coronavirus “misinformation”

Between April and June 2020, Facebook removed seven million posts about the coronavirus for what it deemed to be “harmful” information about the coronavirus. This is on top of putting warning labels on 98 million posts across both Facebook and Instagram during the second quarter of 2020 for containing “misleading” coronavirus misinformation.

Most of the posts censored by Facebook only had warning labels applied to them. However, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had previously revealed that those labels have almost the same effect as removing the posts. He confirmed that the warnings dissuade users from clicking through to content 95 percent of the time.

Australian police go FULL NAZI, smashing in windows of civilian cars just because passengers wouldn’t give details about where they were going

The Australian police have gone full Nazi combining their fascist-looking uniforms with violent tactics for obtaining private information from citizens who haven’t broken the law. These power-crazed, hot-headed maniacs are functioning as if Hitler gave them direct orders to get everyone’s “papers” at all costs. Dressed in black from top to bottom, the S.S. police of Australia have a new style for running their regime, and it’s all fueled and propagandized by the biological weapon and contagion you may know as coronavirus.

States have authority to fine or jail people who refuse coronavirus vaccine, attorney says

As drugmakers race to develop a vaccine against the coronavirus, several legal questions are emerging: could the government require people to get it? Could people who refuse to roll up their sleeves get banned from stores or lose their jobs?

The short answer is yes, according to Dov Fox, a law professor and the director of the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics at the University of San Diego.

“States can compel vaccinations in more or less intrusive ways,” he said in an interview. “They can limit access to schools or services or jobs if people don’t get vaccinated. They could force them to pay a fine or even lock them up in jail.”

Fox noted authorities in the United States have never attempted to jail people for refusing to vaccinate, but other countries like France have adopted the aggressive tactic.

Lockdown Restrictions — A Test To See How Much Tyranny Americans Will Accept ?

Dragging the pandemic out over years with lockdowns hurts the majority of people. It expedites an economic crash that was already in motion and it will lead to massive poverty levels in the US as well as a supply chain breakdown. It may even lead to full-on collapse. -- To be clear, I respect the private property rights of businesses that want customers to wear masks or take other precautions in their establishments. I have the right to not shop at those businesses if I don’t like it. The problems arise when government officials try to FORCE businesses to institute pandemic restrictions or to close down completely. An even bigger problem arises when governments try to force pandemic restrictions onto individuals in their everyday lives. This is simply unacceptable.

Facebook’s latest ‘hate speech’ update proves no censorship will ever be enough for social media thought police

Facebook has expanded its already-prodigious list of banned content to include insults, blackface, and the notion that Jews control major industries. But even these new rules aren’t enough - and nothing ever will be.

The social media behemoth has bent the knee in spectacularly groveling fashion following a pro-censorship campaign disguised as an advertiser protest against Facebook’s supposed leniency toward “hate speech.” In a blog post on Tuesday, the platform announced a dramatic expansion of its Hate Speech policy along with the formation of a “Diversity Advisory Council” and a handful of “inclusivity” task forces.

ENGDAHL: TOWARDS A US-CHINA WAR? THE CREATION OF A GLOBAL TOTALITARIAN "ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT" SYSTEM?

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

SOURCE: F. WILLIAM ENGDAHL VIA GLOBALRESEARCH.CA
If we step back from the details of daily headlines around the world and try to make sense of larger patterns, the dominant dynamic defining world geopolitics in the past three years or more is the appearance of a genuine irregular conflict between the two most formidable powers on the planet - The Peoples’ Republic of China and the United States of America. Increasingly it’s beginning to look as if some very dark global networks are orchestrating what looks to be an updated rerun of their 1939-1945 World War. Only this time the stakes are total, and aim at creation a universal global totalitarian system, what David Rockefeller once called a “one world government.” The powers that be periodically use war to gain major policy shifts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to strongly, but politely, suggest to the Adults in the Room in DC (the one or two perhaps still left standing in Congress and our military), that a war against China would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US could possibly do at this point in its history.

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this country could possibly do, is no guarantee that the US will not do it.

We don't have the troop strength, the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the money to pursue a positive outcome to such a war.

For example, the Chinese now have ai weapons.

Oh, and BTW, the design flaw-fraught F-35?!?
F-35 Design flaws mounting, new document shows.

The article goes on to state: "A new document obtained by the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) shows that the F-35 program office has made little progress in fixing the fighter jet’s hundreds of design flaws, and continues to discover more of them. The Joint Strike Fighter Program Office’s Deficiency Report Metrics document, dated February 28, 2020, shows the program is currently dealing with 883 unresolved design flaws—and has no plan for correcting over 160 of them.

The F-35 has 162 deficiencies listed as “open, no planned correction.”

More than half, 448 deficiencies, remain “open, in dispute.” This means pilots or engineers believed they found a problem, but the contractors tasked with fixing the problems are claiming no problem exists. Multiple sources inside the F-35 program told POGO that the default response from the program’s prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, to any identified shortcoming is to say that the company’s design meets contract specifications, and that any further changes can only be made with a contract modification. In other words, the contractors will not fix the design flaws until the government pays for the changes. More worrying are the 162 deficiencies listed as “open, no planned correction.”

The fact that Lockheed Martin Corporate believes it can "get away with this kind of thinking", betrays at least an extraordinarily cavalier attitude toward the lives of those military personnel who depend on these aircraft for mission and survival, and if President Trump is going to turn this around, he needs to do so via executive order, and right the hell now.

If Lockheed Martin Corporate is obdurate, then henceforward, in every single contract for military product development, there needs to be a very clear statement that to not deliver a military product up to spec, on time, and for massive cost over-run is a form of treason which will not be allowed to stand, and that hard jail time is waiting for those execs who do not adhere to these requirements.

Draconian?!? Absolutely. Would it "cure the problem" of corporate malfeasance for our military?!? I would suggest it may well do that.

And the next thing that has to happen, is that the military industrial complex not be allowed to contribute one penny to political campaigns, either at the state or national level, because it is very difficult to yell at a corporate exec whose company has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to your campaign, when their product does not perform as advertised in the field for our military.

BRAVE NEW WORLD: HEALTH 'EXPERTS' PROPOSE SPIKING WATER SUPPLY WITH LITHIUM TO STOP COVID-19 SUICIDES

SOURCE: BIG LEAGUE POLITICS
Scientists in the United Kingdom are seriously proposing dosing the water supply with lithium to prevent people from committing suicide due to the despair caused by the COVID-19 lockdowns and mass hysteria.

Research has been published in The British Journal of Psychiatry indicating that the use of lithium can result in a lower suicide rate. British health “experts” are attempting to take this correlation and use it as an excuse to drug certain communities that are at risk.

“The prevalence of mental health conditions and national suicide rates are increasing in many countries. Worldwide, over 800,000 people die by suicide every year, and suicide is the leading cause of death among persons aged 15-24 years,” said Anjum Memon, lead author of the study and epidemiology chair at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, in a press release.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lithium has problems, which is why other anti-depressants came into being. Severe side effects can include:

Hand tremor (If tremors are particularly bothersome, dosages can sometimes be reduced, or an additional medication can help.)
Increased thirst.
Increased urination.
Diarrhea.
Vomiting.
Weight gain.
Impaired memory.
Poor concentration.

And to FORCE this on sectors of the population, without their consent?!? How completely dystopian can this guy be to suggest such a thing?!?

'Aunty' Jacinda Ardern says Auckland in level 3 at midday; NZ in level 2

Aucklanders are scrambling to prepare for the looming level 3 lockdown from midday today, with lengthy queues forming outside supermarkets and Covid-19 testing centres.

Police road blocks will be set up at entrances to the Auckland region.

The Government indicated this morning that it could seek a legal notice requiring mandatory mask use for anyone out in public in Auckland.

However Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern later clarified that masks would not be mandatory. Instead she "strong encouraged" everyone to wear a mask, scarf or bandana to cover their face.

The possibility of making masks mandatory would be considered at a later date.

“The American democracy was not given to us on a platter. It is not ours for all time, irrespective of our efforts. Either people organize and they find political leadership to take this on, or we are going to be in big trouble, okay?… That’s absolutely the heart of the problem. I would also say and tell you, and emphasize, these people will not come out and debate with us. The heads of these companies or their representatives, they will not come out. They’re afraid. They don’t have the substance. They don’t have the arguments. We have the evidence. They have the lobbyists. And that’s all they have.” ~ MIT’s Simon Johnson (and former Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund) on “too big to fail” banks led by gambling oligarchs who captured US government as in “banana republics” (his words).

Debate This!

Biden’s image makers know the less the public sees and hears Biden, the better. Biden’s surrogates, a host of handlers, and a sympathetic, seditious Press have constructed a false image of Biden. It is a fragile image easily undercut through public appearances and shattered by a one-to-one match-up with Trump. This is precisely why the Press, along with Biden’s handlers, support early voting and why they seek to delay a Presidential debate. -- The forces driving Biden’s White-House bid must rely on deception. That raises the question whether the upcoming November 2020 Presidential election will be reasonable, fair, impartial, transparent, and honest.

FPC Brief: Background Checks for Ammo Violate Second Amendment

In 2016, California enacted a series of regulations on ammunition sales. Ammunition sales must now be conducted by a licensed ammunition vendor, occur face-to-face at the vendor’s California location, and be approved by the California Department of Justice. DOJ approval requires a background check on the purchaser, for every ammunition purchase. Making matters worse, the background check system denies 16% of lawful purchases due to deficiencies in the system. In the first few months of its enactment, over 100,000 lawful acquisitions were refused, and countless others were deterred by the system’s complexity.

From coast to coast, Americans everywhere are rising up against pedophilia and human trafficking as part of a growing movement known as “Save the Children.” But a #savethechildren hashtag that had begun to go viral on social media has been banned from Facebook, which apparently now caters to pedophiles.

The arrest and death of Jeffrey Epstein combined with continued circulating news about Hollywood child sex abuse has indeed sparked a wave of outrage that is spilling over into our streets as well as online. And Big Tech, which is presumably implicated, is now trying to put the worms back into the proverbial can with mass censorship.

If you still use Facebook, check it out for yourself. You will see that the popular #savethechildren hashtag is no longer available on the platform, as Mark Zuckerberg’s censors have completely removed it from showing up in searches.

Elastic shortage hits New Zealand as face mask production soars, wreaking havoc for small producers, retailers

New Zealand is facing an elastic shortage just as health officials and politicians are encouraging Kiwis to make their own masks amid warnings of a second wave of Covid-19 to come.

*PPV for rest of story.*

*We have had 100 days free of community transmission but are being told to get ready for "a second wave of Covid-19 to come."???? Sounds like the Jacinda is making plans. A lot of people are now waking up to the fact that Jacinda can be just as much a Dictator as anyone else. She put us into lockdown which she knew was illegal but did it for 'our own good'. Isn't that what Dictators do? They do it for our own 'good'? We had 600 people die last year from flu & no lockdown. This year 23 very old people in rest homes die & we go full 'lockdown'. No flu deaths this year at all...*

US-China relations: America is looking to outgun PLA in Indo-Pacific, observers say

US Army Chief of Staff James McConville said at a recent online event hosted by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank, he was making “long-range precision fire” his top priority and was looking at options for basing such weapons systems in the Indo-Pacific as part of America’s deterrence strategy.

The changes “will allow us to overmatch” potential adversaries like China and Russia, he said, adding the move would also include “establishing joint all-domain task forces”.

McConville’s comments came after US Marine Corps commander General David Berger said in March in his “Force Design 2030” plan he wanted to reduce the role of marines in ground warfare and leave the bulk of that responsibility to regular troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious that there are those in power in this country who are just trigger happy enough - and vile enough - to magically believe that another world war would magically resolve all of the US's economic problems, which it will not.

This country doesn't have the money; the troop strength; the manufacturing; or the weaponry to pursue a successful conclusion to a war against China. And such a war will not resolve those situations, only exacerbate them.

Social Media Imposing Modern-Day Hays Code on Political Speech

Social media companies continued to assert their power over the political sphere this week, with Twitter temporarily suspending the Trump campaign’s ability to post until it removed a clip of a Fox News interview with the president regarding COVID-19. When the Democratic National Committee reposted the video to debunk it, Twitter similarly banned the DNC from tweeting until it too deleted the footage. With Twitter seemingly unbothered by the implications of suspending a presidential campaign’s account just 12 weeks before the election, what might the future hold as control of our public squares is increasingly centralized?
