New Technology: Police Camera Ball (VIDEO)


Note: Just more high tech toys for the NSA and all other law enforcement agency’s determined on violating basic civil rights. A “camera ball”??? Really? Sounds like a waste of money that could have been diverted toward rehabilitation for training officers to be decent humans when dealing with the public, or countless other programs to reform law enforcement officers into public servants once again.

Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business ~ Neil Postman


Fluoride, GMOs, toxic vaccines, a school system that intentionally misleads, pHARMaceutical drugs, chemtrails, TV and media mind-control, organized religion…all these things and more have purposely accomplished the end result: brain-damaged robots who are unable to think critically.

Desiree Ann DeBellis “You are absolutely correct Joan Mootry,I have tried shock tactics and in your face tactics and year after year can not get many to think out of the conditioning,,,and alot of them are very nice people,…they are just programmed zombies and they don’t even know it

Randy Beard “We were keeping our eye on 1984. When the year came and the prophecy didn’t, thoughtful Americans sang softly in praise of themselves. The roots of liberal democracy had held. Wherever else the terror had happened, we, at least, had not been visited by Orwellian nightmares.

But we had forgotten that alongside Orwell’s dark vision, there was another – slightly older, slightly less well known, equally chilling: Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Contrary to common belief even among the educated, Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley’s vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.” In 1984, Orwell added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us.

This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.”

– Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

 

Paradoxically speaking, both Huxley and Orwell were right….

Individuality and Spirituality in the Age of Institutional Rule


16th September 2014

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

Contributing Writers for Wake Up World

Humanity has lost its way, but we were led astray. The very institutions we invented to secure us, failed. They have achieved the opposite, and we, the collective of humanity are forced to live in the tribal, vengeance-ruled war world from which institutions invariably profit. And even if you are not completely indoctrinated by this institutionalization, generations of the collective have been indoctrinated, and by reinforcing social “norms”, the steered diligently steer their peers further toward the cliff edge.

Throughout our society is a misguided, socially polarized perspective. Everywhere we look, the truth is deliberately conjured and obscured, leading to divergent oppositions; from the simplest to the most complex, from garden plants to nuclear power “plants”. No matter the subject, no matter the related tangential beliefs, the divergence can be summarized via one simple divider – institutionalization or individuation.

We have been collectively steered by oligarchical institutions toward institutional thinking, allowing unnatural mechanizations to be granted the rights of individuals, and enabling a culture of war, competition and separation. So where does this leave we natural, spiritual beings, who are inherently wired for peace, co-operation and oneness?

This article is a discussion of various of modes of thinking, which compare and contrast institutionalization with individuation. Confusing the two, as in the latest trend of awarding the rights of men to machines, is the new shell humanity has wrapped itself in. And the divine right of institutions is now, dare we say, the essence of what the individuated around the world are rallying against, and what the institutionalized are fighting to protect.

Corruption of Our Food Supply

With this mindset embedded in the collective psyche, those institutionalized individuals figuratively or literally tout exposure to industrial excrement as nutrient, while the individuated among us warn that the industrial poison will kill and demand integrative conditions instead of those suitable only to oligarchical institutions. Some “scientists” have claimed that their “research” (read obfuscation) has found “conventional” food is the same as organic, with no negligible differences in nutrition content. But the facts tell a different story.

And therein is evidence of such social steering, through which pseudo-scientific “facts” are considered. Throughout recorded time, organic farming has been the convention, only recently have pesticides and fertilizers and herbicides been introduced into the food chain, along with factory farming and the genetic modification of plants to survive lethal doses of Monsanto’s Roundup (glyphosate) that kills everything it comes in contact with – including the global honey bee population. Never mind the epidemic levels of disease glyphosate exposure causes in humans. Yet it is organic (read unpoisoned) food that bears the burden of a prefix in our language.

Indoctrinated by misinformation, many people suggest that genetic modification is equivalent to traditional seed hybridization. But they are not equivalent. In the same way that a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, seed hybridization is modification, but it is a modification that an individual can facilitate – with the aid of nature – and is not comparable, in either method or result, to the dangerous laboratory modifications touted by institutional leaders as the way to “feed the world”.

Undoubtedly, there are other ways.

The Nuclear Era

Just like the infiltration of GMOs into our food supply, when it comes to nuclear experimentation, our logic is flawed – but even more so, it is steered.

The complexity of nuclear experimentation is illustrative of the divergence away from manifest truth to total spiritual oligarchical collectivism.

One of the things that grew out the early days of the nuclear experiment was the idea of hormesis, convincing (emphasize con) many that external exposure to radiation is in fact beneficial! This con was originally touted in uranium mines, and now along the North Pacific Coast, etc. The concept of hormesis coincided with the flabbergasting idea, put forth by “scientists” who obviously failed chemistry, that all radiation is the same. Yet this is so far from the truth. In fact not all bequerels are created equal.

For example, the argument for hormesis is somewhat a corrupt conjuration that begins in some truth. The truth is that exposure to some radiation stimulates an immune response, because everything in your body is so heavily affected by radiation exposure that a physiological self-preservation response kicks in. But the “beneficial” result of that immune response is short lived. In the long/mid term, the human body does not benefit from radiation exposure and cannot maintain the full-tilt immune response required to deal with prolonged exposure. And the nuclear industry’s catastrophic history proves it.

The problem with hormesis related to industrial nuclear waste is that there are all kinds of accompanying elements, particulates and gasses that are certain to kill you – despite what the pro nuke kooks suggest; the same kooks, incidentally, who said everything at Fukushima 1 was fine after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and who still say all is well, even after the triple meltdown and ongoing radioactive pollution spilling from the damaged reactor. [For more on the nuclear industry’s ongoing denial, please see: GE Spokesperson Discusses Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster – Interview and Analysis)]

Hormesis is a load of nuclear industry jive. And while the nuclear experimentation industry is the most complex mechanization, it has a whole crew representing an equally complex system of manipulation to maneuvre it into social acceptance. Following the 2011 Fukushima meltdown, Dr. Peter Karamoskos, a nuclear radiologist and a public representative on the radiation health committee of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency said in an article for the Sydney Morning Herald:

You have to hand it to the nuclear industry and its acolytes. In the middle of the second-worst nuclear power disaster in history at Fukushima, and with still no end in sight, you would think they would respond with contrition, humility and profuse mea culpas. Not on your life. The industry representatives and its acolytes came out swinging in full denial attire…

But more insidious and objectionable is the creeping misinformation that the nuclear industry has fed into the public sphere over the years. There seems to be a never-ending cabal of paid industry scientific ”consultants” who are more than willing to state the fringe view that low doses of ionising radiation do not cause cancer and, indeed, that low doses are actually good for you and lessen the incidence of cancer.

Despite the obvious risks, many people still see nuclear energy experimentation as an alternative to the ignition of petroleum fuels. However the petroleum and nuclear industries are basically the same institutional formation; they benefit those at the top of the oligarchy, and endanger the rest of us in the process.

Advocates of the nuclear position argue that nuclear energy is a ‘green’ energy with a zero or low carbon footprint. But nuclear energy is not green by any stretch of the imagination. To say nuclear power has a zero footprint is absurd, when this most lethal, toxic waste is virtually indestructible for millions of years. It is dangerous and destructive to all biological beings on this planet. There is no diluting radiation there is only dispersal. Scientifically speaking, the risk cycle of nuclear power generation cannot be validated as “safe” until waste can be permanently removed, stored or degraded, and the effects on human and environmental health entirely mitigated. And today, that is simply not the case.

Moreover, the nuclear energy and the nuclear arms industries are inextricably linked.

Nuclear Armament as a Means of Defense

The nuclear era began with a boom, and secrets, with the first atomic bombing of New Mexico and then Hiroshima and Nagasaki, etc. Soon after the industry’s first detonations, the atomic energy industry began. And it’s all just another day in the experiment that is the atomic precipice – one that has thousand millennia long implications.

The scholars of the status quo insist that the nuclear armament of the opposing forces in the cold war, pitted against each other, prevented those nuclear nations from going to war. The theory was that our mutually assured destruction viaweaponry of total annihilation would prevent us from using such weapons. And yet today we are faced with widening dispersal of weapons among many nations, with increasing numbers of nations as foes.

More importantly, the threat of radioactive pollution from nuclear detonations threatens the interconnected web of life, as no living being with cells can defend themselves from its toxicity. Thus, considering nuclear armament as a means of “defense”, not a threat, is an oxymoron, touted by morons.

Rise of the Police State

It is the same institutional thinking that has led our society to develop and deploy non-lethal weapons (ie. stun guns), and to accept increasingly militant police, who force individual compliance to institutional rule, while still using lethal weapons against those people considered to have “crossed a line” somehow.

Why is there now overwhelming and unnecessary aggression used by many police? Why are police forces deployed to control populations who protest against the actions of their institutions instead of defending their rights? Why, if there has been an increase in the development of “non-lethal weaponry” is there also an increase in deployment of lethal weaponry such as automatic rifles, alongside armored vehicles? Why, with an increase in the development of “non-lethal weaponry”, are police not trained to manage extreme situations accordingly, instead of routinely shooting dangerous armed offenders in the abdomen?

Why is it that we have surveillance technology used on all of us before the fact, instead of being used to track criminals after a crime has been committed? Does the emerging surveillance culture imply that we are all criminals-in-waiting? Couldn’t we eliminate most need for confrontational force and dangerous police car chases by using such advanced surveillance technology instead of resorting to violent forceful knee-jerk capture tactics in the first instance, which – as another example of dangerous institutional thinking – often end in the death or injury of the innocent and guilty alike?

Individual or Institutional Empowerment?

Today people look for religious, corporate and state institutions to tell us their answers to our questions instead of becoming and realizing our own selves. It seems people today would rather die for an institution than go through the process of individuation. As an institutionalize being, instead of saying “I am Ethan Indigo Smith” or “I am Andy”, one would identify themselves as a cog of some religious machine or so on. “I am catholic”, or “I am American”.

In contrast, there are so many different forms of, and names for, tai chi chuan or shadow-boxing because individuals learned forms of these practices and then made them their own, to suit their own character and intent. Tai chi is a martial art and specifically a form of kung fu. The meaning of kung fu is “stop war”, from what we understand as westerners interpreting summations of an ancient language. There are two symbols involved in kung fu: “stop” or “halt”, as in the gesture with open hand, and “power/war”. So one way, essentially the basic way, to interpret the symbols is as hand power, or “might makes right”. The correct or higher way to interpret kung fu is “stop war”; that being strong makes it such that one does not have to fight, and then secondarily pursues anything but fighting.

Yoga has been steered the same. It is now, for the majority of practitioners, just a workout and not a work-in; a way to coordinate the body with mind. But the ultimate fight is within, with your ego, your shadow.

Why do so many people attend college to earn and so few to learn? Why is it that so few individuals and institutions consider helping others, but are ever quick to hinder others? Why are we steered to be selfish in our obtaining and experiencing, instead of being unselfish? Why are we trained to be passionate instead of being compassionate? For as many gyms as there are, for as many people who do train in some manner, there are fewer people who meditate and even fewer outlets for meditation.

How often do you meditate? When did you last take pause to genuinely reflect? Do you afford your spiritual being the same time and energy as your institutional obligations?

Holy Wars are a War Within

Everything is spiritual, ethereal in the first primal order. Spirit does need physical assistance, rather the physical realm acts in accordance to, and reflects, the spiritual being.

The manifestation of a war, in particular wars those of religious foundation, is a reflection of the collective war within. Disconnected from our true spiritual essence, humanity is engaged in a war with itself, where institutions rally individuals to fight over the “one true faith”, against those who we are taught do not share our spirituality, or our humanity. It is such institutional thinking that has led nationalistic and religious individuals to believe they can fight their way to redemption, heaven, or nirvana.

Considering your physical being as a tool, and becoming anything but a compassionate meditative conduit to Spirit, makes you a tool for such institutions – not a vessel for spirit or god. To survive, we must let go of institutional attachments, and go within. Deep within. And to do that, we must focus on the meaning, and not just the mantra.

The repetition of mantra is a mechanical operation that leads to magical experience. But the repetition of mantra is meaningless if the mind is focused on the method, not the meaning. Institutionalized religion is a form of external worship, which draws our attention to the method – the structure – and not the meaning. Yet true spirituality and spiritual awareness necessitates a responsibility to self and to others, not to religious structure or expectation, and it is there for all of us, without the need for religious and institutional alignment.

[To those who have not experienced the magic of mantra or connection to source, and who seek proof, simply ask them if they ever had a dream and then, ask them to prove it.]

Life and Death

Life itself is sustainable, but each individual expression of life is not; that is, no one gets out of here alive. There is no reason that we should create an environment, or necessary social structures, that are not sustainable beyond our own life span. To do so reflects dedication to the short term aspirations of corporate and government institutions, not the long term aspirations of humanity itself. Such aspirations reflect our conditioned belief that our life span, of say 80 years, is a long time – when it is in fact a blink of a Universal eye.

The “bucket list” mentality, which essentially tells us, “I’m only here once, so I’m going to get mine and go big”, is an expression of that short term thinking. So too is the rise of the industrial era, which was built on the false premise that perpetual economic growth is possible on a finite planet, and which ultimately served the interests of the “baby boom” generation to the detriment of all else. It has resulted in a polluted and bereft environment, and a twisted unsustainable concept of consumption and commerce – a legacy that is now left to younger generations to reverse.

If humanity is to survive, instead of living for now, the Rule of The Seven Generations must apply. Instead of adhering to the methods of self-preserving institutions, and focussing on what we ourselves can gain from such compliance, we need to consider entirety in equanimity. We must recognize our Oneness, our true nature, and act as Universal and Spiritual beings.

The Power of Love

True love has the power to change the world. What is worse is that when too few people find love, the world is also changed. Many find themselves in disarray and are tricked into lending their energy to other ideas – to institutionalized operations rather than individuals. This can take the form of anything from religious fanaticism to professions of war. True love can empower, but truly misdirected passion perceived as love can cause destruction and abuse of all sorts.

Typically, people who meditate more do less harm, by increasing their universal understating and allowing this perspective to influence their surroundings. Yet most people would rather dig a mine then dig into their own mind, where the rewards are truly greater. Instead of digging into the ground to look for minerals we need to practice grounding and meditation, to activate our compassion and find pure consciousness. Instead of practicing meditation (akin to The Secret) where we proactively work to activate our passions into being, we must mediate on the four aspects of love as posited by Buddha; love of self, love off others, love of the happiness of others, love for all in equanimity.

While institutional thinking reigns, individual ascension – the precursor to that of the collective – cannot exist. Only by rejecting the authority of institutions and embracing the sovereign authority to which we as Spiritual beings are entitled, will each of us find what we are yearning for. Peace.

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace”  ~ Jimi Hendrix

How and why you should fight ALL fines – by an ex-Police Sergeant.


 

 

 

My name is Stan. I am a retired Sergeant of Police in Victoria for 14 years. I was also a police prosecutor at times, so I know what I am talking about. I spent half my life in Magistrates Court during my time in the Force. I was only ever a very fair copper, and I am proud of my time in the job, looking after the interests of Victorians, often to the detriment of my family and my health.

 

I never booked any driver for a trifling offence “ever”. People committing trifling offences commonly used to get a warning and a licence / vehicle check. It had to be serious before I booked anyone.

 

I am so annoyed at what is happening these days, in what I call “Indiscriminate revenue gathering” It is absolutely disgusting. The government and the Police Force need to hang their heads in shame. If you did a survey of current serving members of the police forces in this country, you would be hard pushed to find many who disagree with me.

 

I know how the legal system works, and I know how to beat the system. This is how to do it, and if about 10% of all drivers booked follow my specific instructions, then the entire system will crash and become unworkable to the extent, that the government will have no choice but to stop issuing fines for every type of traffic offence. The whole lot of them. Seriously.

 

I do not feel guilty about coming out with this information, as I think it’s about time someone stood up for hard working, civil minded, law abiding taxpayers in this country, who are being screwed.

 

This is very simple and very basic. The idea is to clog up the system in the traffic camera office and the courts by drivers exercising their rights to remain innocent until proven guilty.

 

SIMPLE BASIC LEGAL STEPS TO FOLLOW…………….

 

1. Do not accept the alleged offence. There are numerous valid reasons to dispute every single alleged offence. Often the charges are incorrect or the evidence is illegally or incorrectly gathered.

 

2. Challenge it, tell them that you are going to defend the matter. Make them earn their miserable $150 or $200 or whatever. They have to prepare evidence and witnesses. Just the wages for the camera operator or the Policeman on the day of the court, will be more than the actual fine. You are also taking a camera operator or a member of the Police Force off the street for the day. But it won’t get to that point…..read on….

 

3. If a court date is ever set, and it does not suit you, do not accept it, ask for a delay to a time and place that suits you.

 

4. When they re set the date, delay it as often as possible. keep pleading not guilty all through the process. You have every right to be sick, or go for an adjournment if the day does not suit for any legitimate reason. For example you may have pressing family or work commitments which prevent you from attending a particular court on a particular day.

 

5. If it ever actually gets to court, (which is unlikely if everyone does this) and if you are unwell that day, ring the court in the morning and tell them that you cannot make it as you are sick. The camera operator, and a police prosecutor will already be at court, and will be greatly inconvenienced, by having to come back another day. The whole time this is going on, the amount of paperwork involved at the traffic camera office is huge. Several staff are involved, and it rapidly becomes very costly, probably running into thousands. …..with me so far…..keep reading…….

 

6. The court system is then placed under such a massive load by people who wanted “their day in court” that it simply will not be able to cope unless they open up about another 50 magistrates courts, and this is obviously going to cost the government a lot more than any revenue raised. If all the above fails, which is highly unlikely….and you actually go to court and get convicted……you have a right of appeal. Make sure you appeal the conviction. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to see what happens. They are not going to spend millions chasing hundreds.

 

7 Tell everyone you know to challenge their alleged offences, and the entire system will crash within a few weeks.

 

8. Please pass this on. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY AND THAT THERE IS A VERY HIGH PROBABILITY THAT THE EVIDENCE USED AGAINST YOU IS WRONG. YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO CHALLENGE ANY ALLEGED OFFENCE. THIS IS WHY COURTS EXIST….SO USE THEM……A LOT.

 

Regards,

 

Stan

That is taken DIRECTLY from a PAID, Members ONLY website of ours – accordingly, we require you to please credit us with this e-mail. It took us a LOT of work to get that ex-police officer to write such a detailed e-mail and, whilst we obviously encourage people to fight back against their fines, we would like them to do so with our step-by-step system to do that, which is detailed in our 85 page e-book.

 

Accordingly, please explain that to people on your website or, at the very least, direct people to our website www.aussiespeedingfines.com for further details.

Drone Victims To Congress: Why Did Our Grandma Die? The Young Turks **PLEASE LISTEN**


These beautiful children need to be heard, this is important testimony people need to hear. God Bless Alan Grayson for putting this hearing together, PLEASE LISTEN AND SHARE FREELY!!

MASS PUBLIC OUTRAGE is the only thing that will stop these senseless murders, obviously disapproval isn’t enough for greedy, genocidal war-mongers. Mahalo!

“U.S. lawmakers heard testimony Tuesday morning from survivors of an alleged drone strike for the first time in history, with three Pakistani citizens appearing before Congress to describe an attack that killed their matriarch in Pakistan last year.

Schoolteacher Rafiq ur Rehman and his two children — 9-year-old daughter Nabila and 13-year-old son Zubair — traveled on the invitation of Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., to Washington, where they shared their accounts of the alleged drone attack that killed Rehman’s mother, Momina Bibi, and injured two children in the remote tribal region of North Waziristan last October.

The Rehmans, shocked by the attack, which appeared to target Bibi, a 67-year-old midwife, wants answers from Congress. Encouraged by prominent anti-drone activist and Rehman’s lawyer, Shahzad Akbar, they earned an invitation from Grayson to appear at the hearing.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Why Bradley Manning Should Go Free ~ The Young Turks


“Two major precedents — one encouraging, the other troubling — emerge from today’s conviction of Bradley Manning on espionage charges, but not on charges of aiding the enemy. One is about the definition of journalism, and all the attendant protections that are supposed to come with that profession in a democracy. The other is about who America’s government defines as patriotic heroes and who it deems traitorous villains.”*

Bradley Manning faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of espionage. But why? Why are the priorities of the American government to persecute a man who publicized very credible allegations of torture and war crimes rather than pursue those who committed those crimes? Isn’t it a soldier’s duty to report war crimes? Cenk Uygur makes the case for freeing Bradley Manning.

Google's deep CIA and NSA connections. 50337.jpeg

 

 

The Western media is currently full of articles reporting Google’s denial that it cooperated in a government program to massively spy on American and foreign citizens by accessing data from Googles servers and those of other U.S. software companies.

The mainstream media has, however,  almost completely failed to report that Google’s denial, and its  surface concern over ‘human rights’, is historically belied by its their deep involvement with some of the worst human rights abuses on the planet:

Google is, in fact, is a key participant in U.S. military and CIA intelligence operations involving torture; subversion of foreign governments; illegal wars of aggression; and military occupations of  countries which have never attacked the U.S. and which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

To begin with, as reported previously in the Washington Post and elsewhere, Google  is the supplier of the customized core search technology for ‘Intellipedia, a highly-secured online system where 37,000 U.S. spies and related personnel share information and collaborate on their devious errands.

Agencies such as the so-called ‘National Security Agency’, or NSA, which is implicated in the current ‘spying on Americans’ scandal,  have also purchased servers using Google-supplied search technology which processes information gathered by U.S. spies operating all over the planet.

In addition, Google is linked to the U.S. spy and military systems through its Google Earth software venture.  The technology behind this software was originally developed by Keyhole Inc., a company funded by Q-Tel http://www.iqt.org/ , a venture capital firm which is in turn openly funded and operated on behalf of the CIA.

Google acquired Keyhole Inc. in 2004.  The same base technology is currently employed by U.S. military and intelligence systems in their quest, in their own words, for “full-spectrum dominance” of the planet.

Moreover, Googles’ connection with the CIA and its venture capital firm extends to sharing at least one key member of personnel.  In 2004, the Director of Technology Assessment at In-Q-Tel, Rob Painter, moved from his old job directly serving the CIA to become ‘Senior Federal Manager’ at Google.

As Robert Steele, a former CIA case officer has put it:  Google is “in bed with” the CIA.

Googles Friends spy on millions of Internet Users

Given Google’s supposed concern with ‘human rights’ and with user-privacy, it’s worth noting that Wired magazine reported some time ago that Google’s friends at In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the CIA, invested in Visible Technologies, a software firm specialized in ‘monitoring social media’.

The ‘Visible’ technology can automatically examine more than a million discussions and posts on blogs, online forums, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, and so forth each day.   The technology also ‘scores’ each online item, assigning it a positive, negative or mixed or neutral status, based on parameters and terms set by the technology operators.   The information, thus boiled down, can then be more effectively scanned and read by human operators.

The CIA venture capitalists at In-Q-Tel previously said  they will use the technology to monitor social media operating in other countries and give U.S. spies ¡°early-warning detection on how issues are playing internationally,¡± according to spokesperson Donald Tighe.   There is every possibility that the technology can also be used by the U.S. intellligence operatives to spy on domestic social movements and individuals inside the U.S.

Finally, Obama during his recent meeting with Chinese president Xi, again more-or-less accused China of cyber intrusions into U.S. government computers.  There has, however, been a curious absence from the statements emanating from Google, from U.S. government sources, and from U.S. media reports of truely substantive evidence linking the Chinese government with the alledged break-in attempts.  Words like ‘sophisticated’ and ‘suspicion’ have appeared in the media to suggest that the Chinese government is responsible for the break-ins.  That may be so.  But it is striking that the media has seemingly asked no tough questions as to what the evidence behind the ‘suspicions’ might be.

It should be noted that the U.S. government and its intelligence agencies have a long history of rogue operations intended to discredit governments or social movements with whom they happen to disagree.  To see how far this can go, one need only recall the sordid history of disinformation, lies, and deceit used to frighten people into supporting the Iraq war.

Whether the past attacks on U.S. government systems, Google email, et al  originated from the Chinese government, from the U.S. intelligence operatives, or from elsewhere, one thing is clear:  A company that supplies the CIA with key intelligence technology; supplies mapping software which can be used for barbarous wars of aggression and drone attacks which kill huge numbers of innocent civilians; and which in general is deeply intertwined with the CIA and the U.S. military machines, which spy on millions, the company cannot be motivated by real concern for the human rights and lives of the people in the U.S. and on the planet.

OccupyMARINES & Occupy Police Want Lieutenant John Pike FIRED!!


This is a joint effort between Occupy Police & Occupy Marines. We are petitioning both, the California State Government and the US Federal Government in an attempt to have Lieutenant John Pike’s Employment with the UC Davis Police Department, terminated once this petition receives it’s 10,000th signature. Lt. Pike showed a lack of both restraint and crowd control knowledge when he  blatantly sprayed 11 UC Davis students in the face at point blank range with pepper spray. These students were fully within their constitutional rights being exactly where and as they were, when Lt Pike in an attempt to remove them; blatantly and nonchalantly sprayed them in the face with pepper spray.

We feel that this action could have been avoided had properly trained officers been on site, furthermore, and in addition to the latter, we feel that the visible lack of remorse shown in both Lt. Pike’s stride and nonchalant facial expression while delivering projectile acid directly to the faces of 11 students is grounds for a full psychological evaluation, we are requesting this evaluation be executed immediately and prior to our termination request. We ask for the results of this evaluation to be made public. Results should in no way add gravity to this petitions request for Lt. Pike’s termination from the UC Davis Police Department.

In addition, to Lt. Pike’s employment termination, and full psychological evaluation, we request a full federal investigation into the UC Davis Police Department. We the undersigned and citizens of America feel adequate leadership is/was not present, and is/was needed at UC Davis PD. We ask you to investigate their leadership, and release publicly any findings regarding your investigation –
