"Foundation For Freedom Online" director Mike Benz speaks about how the Western defense and foreign policy establishment created, used, and then turned against the concept of free speech on the internet, during an interview with Tucker Carlson.
"Free speech on the internet was an instrument of statecraft almost from the privatization of the internet in 1991... Free speech was championed more than anybody by the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA cutout-NGO blob architecture as a way to support dissident groups around the world overthrow 'authoritarian governments,' as they were billed."
"Essentially, internet free speech allowed insta-regime-change operations to be able to facilitate the foreign policy establishment's State Department agenda," Benz said. "Google is a great example of this, Google began as a DARPA grant by Larry Page and Sergey Brin when they were Stanford PhDs, and they got their funding as part of a joint CIA/NSA program to chart how 'birds of a feather flock together' online through search engine aggregation. And then one year later, they launched Google and became a military contractor quickly thereafter."
There was a rare activation of the emergency alert system in the United Kingdom on Friday as thousands of residents in a regional city were evacuated from a Second World War bomb.
A 500kg (approximately 1,100lbs) Second World War era bomb was discovered under a garden by a construction crew on Thursday. A 300-meter (330 yard) exclusion zone around the property was established by police, and after it was decided the military would carry the bomb out to sea for disposal the evacuation area was extended around the planned route as well.
It was decided destroying the bomb in place would not be possible as doing so would likely take out several houses.
The Rothschild family’s Swiss and French branches are battling for dominance in the wealth management industry, which is causing tension and sparking speculation of a merger that would significantly impact the global financial landscape, Bloomberg wrote this week.
The Swiss private bank, Edmond de Rothschild Group, and the smaller French lender, Rothschild & Co., are the only remaining banks with links to the family whose name has been a synonym for wealth and power for more than two centuries.
The Rothschild family emerged from the Jewish ghetto in Frankfurt in the 19th century to become one of the world’s richest and most powerful financial dynasties that bankrolled wars and empires, and helped shape Europe’s economic and political history.
Another Biden program bites the dust, this time his big push to encourage everyone to buy an electric vehicle (EV). Meanwhile, Biden keeps going on vacation (as if he REALLY cares about middle America). Cars and light trucks are seeing declining YoY sales in January (-0.7%) as M2 Money growth remains negative.
Supporting prosecutors who vowed not to prosecute, Soros and related entities pushed district attorneys who aimed to reshape law and order into anarchy and disorder.
It worked. At his peak influence, 75 Soros-backed prosecutors held office. As a result, one in five Americans, and half of those living in the nation’s most populous cities, were living in an area run by a Soros DA, or one who shared his ideology.
The damage they have done has been immeasurable. Shoplifting and drug use was decriminalized, repeat offenders were set free with no bail, and murders, robbery and rape increased in Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, New York and more.
But the worm has started to turn. Through a combination of corruption and voter backlash, a significant number of these district attorneys have been ousted.
