There’s a lot of information and misinformation being reported about health risks from exposure to 5G technology.  So if you can only remember one thing about 5G and health risks, this would be it:


The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe.


If you can remember two things:


There is research that says it IS NOT safe (see 1, 2). 


So, parents horrified about 5G towers near their kids’ schools is appropriate.  In fact, parents horrified about ANY cell towers (or antennas) near their kids’ schools is appropriate because health experts including the American Academy of Pediatrics have warned that children are more affected by exposure to wireless radiation than adults.


         



      

From PrepForThat:



Residents in the suburban Los Angeles community of Lakewood say they are “horrified” by the thought of 5G network tower installations. At a community meeting, residents spoke out about 5G health concerns, saying that 5G is not proven safe.


“I’m horrified, to be honest with you,” Lakewood resident Christina Rich said via CBSLA. “I don’t want a cell tower anywhere near our house. They don’t belong in the neighborhoods. They haven’t been proven to be safe.”


Christina was far from alone in her concern over the controversial 5G network.


Monica Draghichi, another concerned parent, said she’s worried that about the density of the towers around schools.


“I’m concerned about the distance to my kids, to the schools in our community and the overall effects and lack of regulation around it,” she said.


Lakewood isn’t the first California community to be up in arms over 5G technology. In fact, parents at a Ripon, California elementary school forced Sprint to remove a single 5G tower they claimed was causing an uptick in childhood cancer. Sprint’s concession to remove the tower served as one of the larger victories over 5G in the United States. In Rhode Island, telecommunication companies are installing 5G towers without public consent.

Firefighters Don’t Want Them on Their Buildings Due to Health Risks So Others Shouldn’t Either


Research has proven many times over that exposure to RadioFrequency Radiation (RF) is harmful to all living beings.  This being the case, when cell towers and antennas are mounted on top of residential buildings and businesses, it’s not safe for anyone who lives or works there.  This is why since 2004, the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) has opposed the use of their stations for cell towers and antennas due to health risks to personnel.  Their website includes many pages of research including a study done on firefighters themselves.


**Note:  A pilot study was conducted in 2004 of six California fire fighters working and sleeping in stations with towers.  The study, conducted by Gunnar Heuser, M.D., PhD. of Agoura Hills, CA, focused on neurological symptoms of six fire fighters who had been working for up to five years in stations with cell towers. Those symptoms included slowed reaction time, lack of focus, lack of impulse control, severe headaches, anesthesia-like sleep, sleep deprivation, depression, and tremors.  Dr. Heuser used functional brain scans – SPECT scans – to assess any changes in the brains of the six fire fighters as compared to healthy brains of men of the same age.  Computerized psychological testing known as TOVA was used to study reaction time, impulse control, and attention span.  The SPECT scans revealed a pattern of abnormal change which was concentrated over a wider area than would normally be seen in brains of individuals exposed to toxic inhalation, as might be expected from fighting fires.  Dr. Heuser concluded the only plausible explanation at this time would be RF radiation exposure.  Additionally, the TOVA testing revealed among the six fire fighters delayed reaction time, lack of impulse control, and difficulty in maintaining mental focus.


         



      


When infrastructure is installed on top of buildings, remediation is still possible to reduce exposure to everyone inside.  Building Biologist Eric Windheim documented a job he did for a building owner who decided remediation was necessary to keep his tenants healthy and happy.

SAN FRANCISCO — The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP filed a class action lawsuit today on behalf of AT&T customers in California to stop the telecom giant and two data location aggregators from allowing numerous entities—including bounty hunters, car dealerships, landlords, and stalkers—to access wireless customers’ real-time locations without authorization.


An investigation by Motherboard earlier this year revealed that any cellphone user’s precise, real-time location could be bought for just $300. The report showed that carriers, including AT&T, were making this data available to hundreds of third parties without first verifying that users had authorized such access. AT&T not only failed to obtain its customers’ express consent, making matters worse, it created an active marketplace that trades on its customers’ real-time location data.


         



      

“AT&T and data aggregators have systematically violated the location privacy rights of tens of millions of AT&T customers,” said EFF Staff Attorney Aaron Mackey. “Consumers must stand up to protect their privacy and shut down this illegal market. That’s why we filed this lawsuit today.”


The lawsuit alleges AT&T violated the Federal Communications Act and engaged in deceptive practices under California’s unfair competition law, as AT&T deceived customers into believing that the company was protecting their location data. The suit also alleges that AT&T, LocationSmart, and Zumigo have violated California’s constitutional, statutory, and common law rights to privacy.


“The location data AT&T offered up for sale is extremely precise and can locate any of its wireless subscribers in real time, providing a window into the intimate details of their lives: where they go to the doctor, where they worship, where they live, and much more,” said Abbye Klamann Ognibene, an associate at Pierce Bainbridge.


“To sell this information without any notification to users is deceptive, extraordinarily invasive of their privacy, and illegal,” said Thomas D. Warren, a partner at Pierce Bainbridge.


The lawsuit, Scott, et al. v. AT&T Inc., et al., filed in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California, seeks money damages and an injunction against AT&T, as well as the involved location data aggregators, LocationSmart and Zumigo. The injunction would prohibit AT&T from selling customer location data and ensure that any location data already sold is returned to AT&T or destroyed.

Op-Ed by Rosanne Lindsay, Naturopath


If you connected all the dots to the various United Nations (U.N.) Agendas, would you create a map of mass regionalization and an eventual Totalitarian State?


Let us count the ways…


Agenda 21: Global Regional Plans Implemented Locally


According to the author of Behind the Green Mask, Rosa Koire says that “U.N. Agenda 21 is an agenda for the 21st century. It  is an inventory and control plan; inventory of all land, water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all food, all energy, all information, and all human beings in the world.” It’s about moving populations into concentrated city centers and clearing them out of rural areas under “Smart Growth.” Under the guise of “Sustainability,” Agenda 21 is the hijacking of the environmental movement.


Agenda 21 is top-down hierarchy, moving away from current government structure based on elected positions in Federal-State-County-City, to a global-regional-neighborhood structure without elections. Currently hundreds of millions of federal dollars are going to cities to create regional plans to give over control of land, and land use, to corporations. For instance, the federal government gave the Telecom Industry new powers to sidestep over the public right-of-way for the roll out of 5G technology by removing regulatory barriers that might prevent infrastructure.


         



      
In an order last year by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), If Verizon wants to build a 5G network in a city, the local government is limited in how much it can charge in application fees, and is pushed to approve permits quickly.These rules also mean cities are limited in how they can respond to residents who are upset about equipment going up near them. Many local leaders have spoken out against the FCC’s rules, dozens of whom have banded together to file a lawsuit to overturn it, which has advanced to the Tenth Circuit.
“[T]he FCC is forcing cities to race to the courthouse to defend the most basic of local government rights—the authority to manage and seek fair compensation from private users that seek to employ public assets,” Tom Cochran, the CEO and executive director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, said in a statement.

Sustainable Development Agenda


U.N. Sustainable Development Agenda seek to redistribute wealth away from the middle class to lower the standard of living and, at the same time, reduce the population. The 17 sustainable development goals include goal #2: End hunger through the control of all food production. See my article on how the U.N. seeks to feed the world with crickets.


Sustainability is fomented through crisis, artificial scarcity, and forced conservation known as rationing. It is the excuse to partner science with religion to combat Climate Change, as the Pope described in his June 2015 encyclical.  Climate Change legislation in California is tied directly to international influences of U.N. Agendas 21 and 2030 for Sustainable Development. Yet, impacts from the government’s cloud seeding and geo-engineering programs continue unabated. Smart Cities will design growth patterns, redesign cities, and herd people into stackable housing through behavior modification, zoning and land use controls, and tax on toll roads.



Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)


The 5G rollout is necessary for “The Internet of Things” in a future of A.I. where techie geeks are thinking up new ways to make you, and the things around you, smarter. For those that missed it, there is a new Church of The A.I. god. The latest god-bot religion is founded by former Google executive Anthony Levandowski, and comes with a website called Wayofthefuture.church. As if to drive this message home, Google’s director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, believes humans will be robot hybrids by 2030. This reflects a Transhumanist Agenda.


Humans will never be the same again, partly because for years, scientists have been using CRISPR gene-editing technology to alter DNA through vaccines and drug therapies. They hope to be able to bring extinct species back from the dead as one of their marvel feats.


The U.N. Agendas pave the way for a seamless transition from the individual to the group mindset as part of the A.I. Agenda. There will be no need for voting since there is no need for the individual voter. A Totalitarian, Transhumanist, state is being developed worldwide under a few select corporations: a fascist Corpratocracy. Agenda 21 and 2030 represents a world without borders to allow the free movement of workers, goods and services, all while reducing wages.  The politically correct name for this movement?


Social Equity.


However, not your social equity, but equity for corporations to exploit, manage, surveil and control individuals in tightly packed dense “stack and pack” cities.  Control is a vital part of the plan.






What is at stake?


Individuality and individual sovereignty. The most important private property is your body.  Lost identity falls under the mask of “unity” rhetoric. Unity, under the guise of uniformity and conformity, looks like a genderless society. Genderless means males and females no longer exist. When males and females no longer exist, there is no procreation of the human species. The agenda is depicted as U.N. Goal #5 Gender Equality. The U.N. message is this:  Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. 


The U.N. is implementing “new legal frameworks” to grant “new rights” to groups, to end gender-based discrimination in every country. Government granted rights are merely privileges. What the U.N giveth, it can taketh away. What does the U.N goal look like in reality?  The answer is disclosed in the news headlines, which are codes that set the stage for the outcome. The UN counts on you not seeing the Big Picture to connect the dots to the loss of your identity from non-gender, inter-sex birth certificates to driver’s licenses to tax-subsidized surgeries for those who want to change their gender.

5o+ years of U.N. Weather Modification Projects


Climateviewer 3D, maps

While the UN claims that Chemtrails are imaginary, they have been tracing weather modification projects worldwide between the years 1952 and 1999 as recorded by the United Nations World Meteorological Organization. Cloudseeding enhances and targets precipitation, and has been going on since the 1800s.  Need a deeper snowpack for ski resorts? Click on Utah and find out that they can increase the snowpack. Have a fire to put out? Call the companies that will cause it to rain and charge you for it! China spent hundreds of millions of dollars to control the weather during the Beijing Olympics. But don’t expect them to take the blame for causing floods.


The Weather Modification map includes data on the apparatus involved, agents applied and the techniques used in each event. It also includes both positive and negative results of some of the completed projects, funding sources such as government agencies and private companies. It even includes expert opinions and law cases on the topic in order for you to get a complete picture of the benefits and drawbacks of such programs.


Seize The Opportunity

Rosa Koire, in her video interview UN Agenda 2030 Exposed, suggests that there is an opportunity now to:



Stand up
Speak out
refuse to collaborate
refuse to cooperate
expose collaborators
work together to defund these plans
demand what it is the corporations want to give us.

As this is happening worldwide, most know nothing about it since the mainstream press is owned by five corporations.



You are not going to get this information from the mainstream press. So you need to be your own press. You need to educate yourself. You need to get out there and educate your neighbor, your community, your real community. You need to help your children understand that they are being indoctrinated from pre-kindergarten to post graduate school…


All of us have a responsibility to ourselves and to others. This is true community, to work for personal freedom. And always remember even if we do work as a group, we’re all individuals in those groups and we answer only to ourselves.  This is essential. As free human beings are free and we need to continue to be free.. – Rosa Koire

It keeps getting worse. The neocons have burrowed termite-deep inside the Trump administration and rumor has it the president will add yet another one to an important cabinet position.


If there is any substance to the latest rumors, DNI Dan Coats will be replaced by Fred Fleitz, former NSC executive secretary, CIA analyst, Trump Chief of Staff, Bolton enforcer, and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.


This last one should send up a huge red flag. CSP is a project launched by Frank Gaffney Jr., an Islamophobe way out on the neocon fringe. During the Trump presidential campaign, I wrote a short ebook (Donald Trump and the War on Islam) about Gaffney, among other neocons and rabid Israel-firsters exacting a corrosive influence on the Trump campaign.


         



      

I wrote:



Frank Gaffney is at the forefront of the movement to arouse hatred and fear designed to further extend and expand the war on terror and ultimately realize the objective of the [neocon] “clean break” plan [for Israel] to destroy not only Arab and Muslim nations, but societies and culture as well.


Gaffney is so radical he was rejected by the Pentagon when he was Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Forces and Arms Control Policy in the Reagan Administration. He is associated with other neocons, including Richard Perle, who rose to prominence as aides of the late Democrat Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson.



Fleitz was formerly the managing editor of LIGNET.com (Langley Intelligence Group Network). This is a pro-Likudnik intelligence operation is linked to Bolton, former Ambassador Otto Reich, former CIA Director Michael Hayden, and others.


You can hear echoes of Fleitz in Trump’s irrational anti-Iran policies. In 2017, Fleitz signed on to a letter sent to Trump, that stated in part:


We agree with Ambassador John Bolton that strong international sanctions, a tough negotiating strategy and a decisive American president who will not engage in appeasement is the best approach to rein in Iran’s belligerent behavior and induce it to joining negotiations on a better agreement… It is time to move beyond President Obama’s appeasement of Iran and to begin work on a comprehensive new approach that fully addresses the menace that the Iranian regime increasingly poses to American and international security.






In other words, the “security” (dominance) of Israel and maintenance of the apartheid status quo.


Ambassador John Bolton has drawn up a plan to implement a far more effective, comprehensive and multilateral approach to address the threat from Iran. This approach includes strict new sanctions to bar permanently the transfer of nuclear technology to Iran. He also calls for new sanctions in response to Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism and efforts to destabilize the Middle East, especially in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.


The signatories—including Gaffney, leading neocon and former Cheney adviser David Wurmser, and Morton Klein (president of the Zionist Organization of America)—undoubtedly agree with the Bolton plan for Iran, as laid out in a 2015 NY Times op-ed, To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran.


Bolton concluded:


The United States could do a thorough job of destruction, but Israel alone can do what’s necessary. Such action should be combined with vigorous American support for Iran’s opposition, aimed at regime change in Tehran.

In response to Trump’s clumsy partial implementation of the Bolton plan, namely jettisoning the JCPOA, Iran has indicated it will defend itself if attacked, including but not limited to shutting down one-third of the world’s oil passage through the Strait of Hormuz. It has threatened to target Israel cities, Gulf Emirate oil infrastructure, and US troops and bases in the Middle East.


Trump is reminiscent of a person suffering from a split personality disorder. On the one hand, the “Good Trump” has declared he wants US troops out of Syria, while the “Bad Trump” bombs Syria and threatens “fire and fury” levied against North Korea and Iran. It is, to say the least, a schizophrenic foreign policy.

The FBI plans to step up its efforts to gather information from social media – issuing a call last week for a new tool to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms “in a timely fashion.”


Citing the use of social media by terrorist groups, domestic threats, criminal organizations and foreign intelligence services, the FBI “needs near real time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available,” according to the request for proposal.


         



      

In addition to information such as user IDs, the feds are interested in “emails, IP addresses, telephone numbers, and likely aliases” used over social media. The tool would also allow for location-based trackingpersistent keyword monitoring, and access to one’s personal social media history.




The FBI has justified the tool by claiming it is in response “to an increasing number of threats to U.S. national interests that are identifiable, with ever-greater frequency, through social media platforms.”



It is an acknowledged fact that virtually every incident and subject of FBI investigative interest has a presence online. Consequently, law enforcement gaining lawful access (i.e., access that is authorized, appropriate, and consistent with applicable law and policy) to this data will result in early detection and/or containment of the magnitude of any harm caused by these threats.


To protect US citizens, a method employed by the FBI is the acquisition of subscriptions granting access to tools. These allow for the exploitation of lawfully collected/acquired from social media platforms and stored, vetted and formatted by a vendor. The missioncritical exploitation of social media enables the Bureau to proactively detect, disrupt, and investigate an ever growing diverse range of threats. More specifically, the Bureau provides real-time situational awareness of indicators and warnings of emerging social media incidents. -FBI

How long can the stock market possibly stay completely disconnected from economic reality?  On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose just 27 points, but that was good enough to push it to yet another new all-time record high.  Investors have been absolutely thrilled by the extremely impressive bull run that we have witnessed so far in 2019, but there is no way that this is sustainable.  Wall Street may be celebrating for the moment, but meanwhile all of the hard economic numbers are telling us that we have now entered a new economic slowdown.  Just like in 2008, it appears to be inevitable that the party on Wall Street is about to hit a brick wall, but nobody should be surprised when it happens.  Everywhere around us there are signs of economic trouble, and right now companies are literally shutting down all over America.


For example, just take a look at what is happening to the trucking industry.  I recently warned about the trucking “bloodbath” that was unfolding, and over the past week it has greatly accelerated.


         



      

On the 12th of July, we learned that trucking giant LME had abruptly shut down.  The following comes from Zero Hedge…



Less-than-truckload carrier LME has reportedly “suddenly and abruptly” shut down its operations, according to FreightWaves.


The company is a regional carrier based in Minnesota that operated throughout the Midwest. The company had terminals in 30 locations across the U.S. and through interline agreements services all of North America. It also worked with major companies like 3M, John Deere and Toro.


The company reportedly included “over 600 men and women” and has been listed as having 382 power units and 1,228 trailers, with 424 truck drivers.



Then today we learned that Timmerman Starlite Trucking suddenly shut down without any notice…



40 year old California trucking outlet Timmerman Starlite Trucking, Inc. is the latest victim in the “trucking apocalypse” and announced that it would be shutting down effective immediately, according to FreightWaves.


30 employees are expected to lose their jobs as a result. The company is based in a mid sized city about 100 miles east of San Francisco and had a fleet of 30 trucks, 150 trailers and 28 drivers.


The company’s owner cited “a tough freight market and environmental regulations” as reasons for the shut down. The company announced the shutdown on its Facebook page.



Of course those two trucking companies are definitely not the only victims of this “bloodbath”.  According to Business Insider, ALA Trucking, Williams Trucking, Falcon Transport and New England Motor Freight have also completely ceased operations in 2019.


If the U.S. economy really was “booming”, this would not be happening.


Meanwhile, major retailers continue to fall like dominoes.  Charming Charlie is headed for bankruptcy and will be closing all of their stores…



Fashion accessory retailer Charming Charlie will close all its stores after going bankrupt for the second time in less than two years. More than 3,000 full- and part-time employees could lose their jobs.


Charming Charlie Holdings Inc. filed for Chapter 11 protection in Delaware with plans for going-out-of-business sales at about 261 stores, according to court documents. The chain expects the liquidation to take about two months.



In addition, we just learned that Fred’s will be shuttering another 129 stores as it desperately attempts to stay alive…



Troubled discount merchandiser Fred’s has announced another round of store closures.






The chain will shutter 129 stores, leaving it with about 80 locations, USA Today reported. Going-out-of business sales have already begun.



Not too long ago, I went to a going out of business sale at a local store that was closing down, and it was definitely depressing.  At one time the shelves had been packed full of products, but by the time I got there people were clawing through the small handfuls of deeply discounted merchandise that still remained.


Sadly, such scenes are being repeated over and over again all around the country.  In fact, things are already so bad that even Manhattan retailing legend Barneys is likely headed for bankruptcy…



Barneys may be on the cusp of filing for bankruptcy protection as the luxury Manhattan retailer contends with high rents and shoppers going online, according to two media reports.


Reuters, citing unnamed sources, reported Saturday that Barneys has tapped law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP and is weighing a potential bankruptcy filing among other options that could occur in the coming weeks.



The all-time record for store closings in a single year was set in 2017 when 8,139 stores shut down.


According to a brand new report that was just released, we are on pace to absolutely shatter that old record.


In fact, Coresight says that the number of store closings in the U.S. could hit 12,000 by the end of this year…


The “going-out-of-business” sales and liquidation of other brands is expected to continue. Coresight estimates closures could reach 12,000 by the end of the year, the report said.

In The Beginning Of The End, I painted a picture of a future in which America’s communities would be littered by boarded up stores that had been abandoned by major retailers.


Now it is happening right in front of our eyes.


Everything that is taking place in the “real economy” makes perfect sense, and unfortunately our economic problems are likely to accelerate significantly in the months ahead.


What doesn’t make sense is what we are witnessing on Wall Street.


There is no way that stock prices should be rising like this, but financial bubbles don’t typically follow rational patterns.


Instead, they usually just keep going until something comes along to end them.


And considering everything that is going on in the world right now, that “something” could definitely arrive sooner rather than later.

According to the dinosaur media, the worst part about the exposure of Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex trafficking and high-level blackmail operation is that it bolsters conspiracy theories about child sex trafficking and elite corruption.

The federal government will soon run up against its self-imposed borrowing cap once again.


Current estimates are for the government to max out its credit limit at a little over $22 trillion in early September. Congress goes on recess in August, so there is some pressure to address the cap right now.


Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has been fulfilling what seems to be the most sacred responsibility of his position: borrowing money. It’s one that each of his predecessors has also undertaken, without fail and without regard to party affiliation, in recent decades.


         



      

He is solemnly arguing why it would be wholly irresponsible for Congress not to approve another massive increase in what the Treasury can borrow.


Now that his ritual is complete, the only question is whether Congress and the President will engage in another sham fight before approving an increase, or if the politicians will agree quietly and hope not too many citizens notice.


While the outcome is all but assured, the context surrounding Federal borrowing is interesting. Let’s review…


According to government statisticians, we are in the longest economic expansion on record. There have been 105 straight months of job growth. Federal tax revenues are expanding – currently up 3% versus the prior year.


Some may wonder why the Federal government is bumping into the cap already. Congress and the president gave themselves more than a $2 trillion increase in the credit line over the past couple of years.


The trouble is that while tax revenue is growing at 3%, government spending is growing at 7% – about 4 times the official inflation rate. The deficit for October through June is 23% higher than the same period last year.

Despite the “rosy” economy, we are running trillion-dollar deficits. This much borrowing was last seen under Barack Obama in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.


What will deficits look like the next time recession cripples tax receipts and Congress ramps up fiscal stimulus? It may not be too long before we have a chance to find out.


The Treasury department will be stuck trying to peddle multi-trillions in Treasuries with yields near zero. We’re guessing the line of prospective buyers will get pretty short.


Americans are being told the economy is strong. Yet the Fed is getting ready to start cutting rates.


Jerome Powell is worried about trade and stubbornly low inflation. President Trump is concerned that current interest rates, while still historically low, aren’t low enough.

So here we are again with Congress once more getting ready to grapple with the debt ceiling. Establishment politicians may want to avoid headlines and quietly agree on an increase.


Any public debate over increasing the federal debt ceiling will be especially awkward for Republicans. Getting caught voting for trillions more in borrowing is not a good look – especially after years of screeching about deficits when the Democrats were in control.


However, regardless of what happens in the weeks ahead, the size of Federal deficits and debt probably can’t be swept under the rug for too much longer. America is one recession away from serious trouble.

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Local governments and private corporations are using facial recognition to secretly blacklist people, despite having no valid reason to do so.


A recent article in the Idaho Statesman, and in the video below, prove that local governments are using facial recognition to ban residents from accessing city-owned buildings.


The Boise city council claimed that they need facial recognition cameras to protect public employees from disgruntled or unwelcome residents.


         



      


Wow, there must be a lot of disgruntled or unhappy residents for the city council to justify putting facial recognition cameras in Boise City Hall and City Hall West, right?


Would you believe both city halls have banned just one single resident because he opposed using city funds to pay for an NBA developmental league team.


His ban apparently did not last very long, because Mike Journee, a spokesman for Mayor David Bieter, said, “no one is currently banned from City Hall.”


So if no one is currently banned from City Hall why install facial recognition cameras? Could the government use facial recognition to quell dissent? How many people will refuse to complain or speak out because law enforcement could use it to identify them?


The Statesman revealed that “the technology would be used to identify people who are banned from City Hall for any reason.”


Journee also admitted that there is no “specific instance” that could justify installing facial recognition cameras on city property. So if there is no “specific instance” or reason to use facial recognition to identify unwelcome people, why use it?


To create secret blacklists and quell dissent of course.

The government already uses facial recognition to create a secret “No-Fly List” (blacklist) of citizens and now watchlists and blacklists are creeping into public transit. Private corporations, bars and nightclubs are also using facial recognition to identify and blacklist customers and sports fans.






Everyone should take notice when the mass-media admits what I have been saying for years: facial recognition is being used to blacklist people for any reason.


It is time to face facts, the feds and law enforcement are secretly using facial recognition to track and identify anyone of interest.


Law enforcement’s unfettered access to facial recognition and drivers licenses is a privacy nightmare.

Miami state Rep. Michael Grieco told the Orlando Sentinel, “I feel like we’re taking a step backwards; it’s like the wild west with privacy.”


Alvaro Bedoya, the founding director of Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy & Technology told NPR,


In Washington, Utah and Vermont — ICE agents are actually taking advantage of that (facial recognition) to secretly find and deport those people using face recognition technology.


Not only is law enforcement secretly using facial recognition to identify people but they are using it to deport immigrants or undesirables. What more proof do we need that facial recognition is not a public safety issue, it is a public watchlist and blacklist issue.

By Caitlin Johnstone


CNN has published an unbelievably brazen and dishonest smear piece on Julian Assange, easily the most egregious article of its kind since the notoriously bogus Assange-Manafort report by The Guardian last year. It contains none of the “exclusive” documents which it claims substantiate its smears, relying solely on vague unsubstantiated assertions and easily debunked lies to paint the WikiLeaks founder in a negative light.


And let’s be clear right off the bat, it is most certainly a smear piece. The article, titled “Exclusive: Security reports reveal how Assange turned an embassy into a command post for election meddling”, admits that it exists for the sole purpose of tarnishing Assange’s reputation when it reports, with no evidence whatsoever, that while at the Ecuadorian embassy Assange once “smeared feces on the walls out of anger.” Not “reportedly”. Not “the Ecuadorian government claims.” CNN reported it as a fact, as an event that is known to have happened. This is journalistic malpractice, and it isn’t an accident.


         



      

Whenever you see any “news” report citing this claim, you are witnessing a standard smear tactic of the plutocratic media. Whenever you see them citing this claim as a concrete, verified fact, you are witnessing an especially aggressive and deliberate psyop. The Ecuadorian embassy was easily the most-surveilled building in the world during Assange’s stay there, and the Ecuadorian government has leaked photos of Assange’s living quarters to the media in an attempt to paint him as a messy houseguest in need of eviction, so if the “feces on the walls” event had ever transpired you would have seen photos of it, whether you wanted to or not. It never happened.




“New documents obtained exclusively by CNN reveal that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange received in-person deliveries, potentially of hacked materials related to the 2016 US election, during a series of suspicious meetings at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London,” the article begins.


In its very first sentence the article invalidates all the claims which follow it, because its use of the word “potentially” means that none of the documents CNN purports to have contain any actual evidence. It’s worth noting at this time that there is to this day not one shred of publicly available evidence that any of the Democratic Party emails published by WikiLeaks in 2016 were in fact “hacked” at all, and could very well have been the result of a leak as asserted by former British ambassador Craig Murray, who claims to have inside knowledge on the matter.


The glaring plot holes in the Mueller report’s assertions about Russia being the source of the 2016 WikiLeaks drops have already been ripped wide open by journalist Aaron Maté’s meticulous analysis of the report’s timeline in an article accurately titled “CrowdStrikeOut: Mueller’s Own Report Undercuts Its Core Russia-Meddling Claims“. The CNN smear piece, which claims to “add a new dimension to the Mueller report”, is entirely relying on this porous timeline for its reporting. Plot holes include the fact that Mueller claims (and CNN repeats) that the Russians transferred the emails to WikiLeaks on or around July 14, which Maté notes is “a full month after Assange publicly announced that he had them.”


CNN kicks off its smear piece with the inflammatory claim that “Assange met with Russians and world-class hackers at critical moments”, mentioning both “Russians” and “hackers” in the same breath in an attempt to give the impression that the two are related. It’s not until paragraph 43 and 46, long after most people have stopped reading, that the articles authors bother to inform their readers that the “hackers” in question are German and have no established connection to the Russian government whatsoever. The “Russians” counted among Assange’s scores of visitors consist of RT staff, who have always consistently reported on WikiLeaks, and a “Russian national” about whom almost nothing is known.


The article falsely labels Assange a “hacker”, a defamatory claim the mass media circulates whenever it wants to tarnish Assange’s reputation. Assange, of course, is a publisher. WikiLeaks publishes materials which are given to it, it doesn’t “hack” them.








CNN also repeats the long-debunked lie that RT “published articles detailing the new batches of emails before WikiLeaks officially released them” during the 2016 election, citing no evidence because this never happened. RT reported on a WikiLeaks release in October 2016 after it had been published by WikiLeaks but before the WikiLeaks Twitter account had tweeted about it, and western propagandists willfully conflated WikiLeaks publications with tweets from the WikiLeaks Twitter account in order to make it look like RT had insider knowledge about the publications.


In reality, RT was simply watching the WikiLeaks site closely for new releases in order to get an early scoop before other outlets, because Podesta email leaks had been dropping regularly.


“That is a LIE that’s been debunked over and over,” tweeted RT America editor Nebojša Malić‏ in response to the smear. “We published ONE article about the emails that were RELEASED already, just not TWEETED about yet, because WikiLeaks had been releasing them like clockwork and we paid attention. It’s called journalism, they should try it sometime.”


“Yes that is fake news,” tweeted RT’s Ivor Crotty.


I was the editor on the team that monitored wikileaks and by Podesta 6 we knew they tweeted at 9am EST each day (1pm Dublin) – so we checked the database by reverse searching and discovered a new dump, tweeted about it, and the conspiracy theorists jumped.


“RT already addressed this in 2016, convincingly if you read the sequence of events they lay out: the Podesta emails appeared on the WikiLeaks website before WikiLeaks sent a tweet about it,” Maté tweeted at CNN’s Marshall Cohen.


Ignoring that allows for the conspiracy theory you propose. It’s ridiculous to suggest that RT-Wikileaks ‘were coordinating behind the scenes’ based on the fact that RT tweeted about the Podesta emails AFTER they appeared on WL’s site, but BEFORE WL tweeted about them. You’re implicating RT in a conspiracy… for doing journalism.




American Natural Superfood - Free Sample



It’s not possible to research the “RT had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks drops” conspiracy theory without running across articles which debunked it at the time, so the article’s authors were likely either knowingly lying or taking dictation from someone who was.


“Spanish newspaper El Pais on July 9: ‘Spanish security company spied on Julian Assange’s meetings with lawyers‘. Add little security state propaganda and 6 days later you get from CNN: ‘How Julian Assange turned an embassy into command post for election meddling’,” noted Shadowproof managing editor Kevin Gosztola in response to the CNN smear, a reminder of how a little narrative tweaking can turn a story on its head in support of the powerful.



This would be the same CNN who told its viewers that it’s against the law to read WikiLeaks, with Democratic Party prince Chris Cuomo lying “Remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents; it’s different for the media, so everything you learn about this you’re learning from us.” The same CNN which falsely reported that Assange is a pedophile not once, but twice. The same CNN which has been caught blatantly lying in its Russiagate coverage, which has had to fire journalists for misreporting Russiagate in a media environment where that almost never happens with Russia stories, which has deleted evidence of its journalistic malpractice regarding Russiagate from the internet without retraction or apology.


So this latest attempt to tarnish Julian Assange’s reputation from CNN is not surprising. Nor is it surprising that the article contains exactly zero of the “exclusive documents” which it says validate its claims and insinuations. Nor is it surprising that CNN is using invisible evidence which almost certainly came into its hands through a government agency to give weight to its smear. But the sheer volume of disinformation and deceit they were able to pack into one single article this time around was just jaw-dropping. Even for CNN.

The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe and plenty of credible researchers say it isn’t (see 1, 2).  Of course there are decades of research that has proven 1G through 4G is harmful too.  However, because of fast and furious 5G installation worldwide a la the “Race for 5G”, more attention is being paid to it right now including at the upcoming  5G Crisis Summit in September.


Ty and Charlene from “The Truth About Cancer” have announced that they will be featured at the Summit as well.


         



      

From their recent newsletter:


5G wireless… the industry HAS NOT shown it to be safe for your health or privacy. Yet THOUSANDS of peer-reviewed, independent studies show otherwise – and they’re building it anyway.


Understand the dangers of 5G and learn how to implement better solutions in your community!


Learn more about the dangers of 5G wireless when you attend this free, online event!


WHY ATTEND?


You may have heard of 5G (we’ve talked about it a lot here at TTAC). It stands for fifth-generation cellular wireless. In a February 2019 U.S. Senate hearing, the wireless industry was forced to admit they have no safety studies on 5G, and don’t plan to do any.


Meanwhile, there are thousands of independent studies concluding that wireless radiation causes biological harm.


Despite this, the wireless industry is working with the government to deploy 5G – it’s a global, for-profit, human experiment… without our consent.


What does it mean? Millions of “small” cell towers will be added to every block (which is a serious privacy concern). Each tower emitting radiation at levels known to cause cancer, sterility, DNA damage, and other harm… especially to our children, who are most at risk.






We (Ty & Charlene) recently interviewed with Josh del Sol and are really excited to be featured in this extremely important summit!


Join us at the 5G Crisis Summit to discover:



5G defined: research, facts, and awareness
Science about the dangers of 5G and EMF radiation
Sources of wireless radiation and “dirty electricity” in your home
Link between 5G, Al, and global surveillance
How groups and individuals are successfully opposing 5G
Simple, empowering actions you can take, here and now
Individual solutions and safer, revolutionary technologies
And more!

Your guides for this event are Josh del Sol and Sayer Ji, two iconic health advocates who are known for changing the way we view and achieve improved health and happiness.


If you’re hungry for cutting-edge information with life-saving consequences, and want to be part of a movement dedicated to empowering ourselves and humanity, join us for this event!


We’ll see you online at The 5G Crisis Summit!

The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe and plenty of research has proven it isn’t (see 1, 2).  Doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, security experts, the U.S. Navy, utility companies and more have been trying to stop 5G deployment for a variety of compelling reasons.  Few people are subscribing to it where it’s already been installed and users are complaining that 5G is making their phones and modems overheat.  Regardless, telecom companies and proponents continue to promote and install it wherever they can – above ground and below.


         



      

Thanks to Debra Greene, PhD for sending this alert out to her email list:


It sounds like something out of a sci-fi horror movie.


5G transmitting from a football field sized drone flying around the Hawaiian islands beaming toxic 5G wireless radiation into the ocean, into marine life, into valleys, into homes, into our bodies, into off-grid hard to reach areas of our varied terrain.


drone bigger than any jumbo jet or military aircraft in existence flying at 65,000 to 85,000 feet.


If I hadn’t read it with my own eyes in the Maui News (7-11-19), I would not believe this is happening.


But it’s real. And it’s a real threat that we must stop. Now.  


Please submit your testimony to this email address by Monday, July 15!


The Lanai Planning Commission meeting is Wednesday and email testimony must be received 48 hours in advance.


Here are some points to include. Mix them up. Pick choose and add your own words


– Make sure your subject line says: No 5G Drone for Lanai (often only subject lines are read).


– 200 acres of agriculture land on Lanai should not be used for this high tech drone experiment. It has nothing to do with agriculture.


– The Lanai drone is bigger than any jumbo jet or military aircraft in existence. Drones of this size are highly experimental. This massive drone could malfunction and literally fall from the sky and kill people and kill whales.

– The developers are not acting in good faith. There has been no public input, yet the developers have already built a structure on the proposed land! This shows troubling disrespect for the Lanai community.


– 5G uses millimeter wave frequencies which have military applications. They are known to be harmful to all biological life. It will contaminate our marine sanctuaries with toxic wireless radiation. This drone project was not asked for by the community and does not serve the community.


– Wireless radiation is a well documented health hazard. We do not consent to being experimented on with this massive 5G drone. We do not want to be guinea pigs. This is a violation of the Nuremberg Code.


– There is overwhelming scientific evidence, including 10,000 studies and three large recent studies, showing that wireless radiation is a biohazard. It has been clearly linked in a large NIH study with heart and brain tumors.


– 5G from the sky will vastly increase our exposure to wireless radiation, shown in studies to penetrate the skin and cause damage to cells, organs and the nervous system. It has been shown to especially harm children, and also wildlife, including plants and bees.


– The FCC guidelines are out-of-date and do not account for the latest research. 5G has been banned overseas in Brussels and Geneva over health concerns. Hundreds of scientists, doctors and environmentalists are calling for an urgent ban on 5G. To impose it on us without safety testing is wrong. We have not been consulted on 5G and do not give our consent to it.

By Michael Maharrey


Last week, a second California Assembly committee unanimously passed a bill that would establish limited state-chartered banks to serve the cannabis industry. Final passage of this legislation would remove a major federal roadblock in front of the developing industry in the state and further nullify federal prohibition in practice.


Sen. Bob Hertzberg, (D-Van Nuys), along with a bipartisan coalition of eight cosponsors, filed Senate Bill 51 (SB51) on Dec. 4.  The legislation would create a self-contained banking system for the cannabis industry in California.


Because marijuana remains illegal under federal law, cannabis businesses in states that have legalized marijuana remain effectively locked out of the banking system. If a federally chartered or insured financial institution touches marijuana money, it takes on significant legal risk. The federal government insures or charters virtually every bank in the U.S. As a result, cannabis businesses have been forced to transact almost exclusively in cash. Passage of SB51 would completely bypass the federal banking system and create a limited banking alternative for the marijuana industry in California.


Organically Grown CBD Oil and Products Available (Ad)


On July 9, the Assembly Committee on Business and Professions passed SB51 by an 18-0 vote. It previously passed the Assembly Committee on Banking and Finance 10-0. It has already cleared the Senate by a 36-1 vote.


Under the proposed law, the state would license “cannabis limited charter banks and credit unions.” Cannabis businesses would be able to deposit funds in these institutions and write “special purpose checks” on their accounts for limited purposes, including paying state or local fees and taxes, paying rent on property associated with a cannabis business, paying vendors, or buying state or local bonds or warrants. These checks could only be deposited or cashed at the issuing cannabis limited charter bank or credit union, or another cannabis limited charter bank or credit union that agrees to accept the check. This would keep the entire process outside of the federal checking system known as the automatic clearing house (ACH).


         



      

Cannabis limited charter banks and credit unions would be allowed to form banking networks, but they could not engage in banking activity with any other bank or credit union. They would also be able to provide accounts to people and entities other than cannabis businesses, pursuant to rules adopted by the commissioner of the Department of Business Oversight.


A similar bill passed the California Senate during the last legislative session, but it died during the Assembly committee process.


“The status quo for our growing legal cannabis industry is unsustainable,” Hertzberg said in a press release last year. “It’s not only impractical from an accounting perspective, but it also presents a tremendous public safety problem. This bill takes a limited approach to provide all parties with a safe and reliable way to move forward on this urgent issue.”


The Assembly committees have made some technical amendments to the bill, but have not made significant changes in its substance.


FEDERAL BANKING LAWS


The Federal government has used banking laws as a weapon in its unconstitutional war on cannabis by making it impossible for marijuana businesses to access the banking system – even in states where marijuana has been legalized. The feds can prosecute bankers for knowingly engaging with cannabis businesses under the Bank Secrecy Act, the USA Patriot Act, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.


The Federal Reserve has gotten into the act, denying its services to state banks chartered to serve the marijuana industry.


For instance, in 2015, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City denied  Fourth Corner Credit Union’s application for a master account. The Denver based credit union was formed by Colorado’s state-licensed cannabis manufacturers as a non-profit cooperative. By denying its application, the Fed prevented the institution from access to the Fed’s payment facilities, including its check clearing, wire transfer, and ACH facilities. This made it virtually impossible for Fourth Corner to do business.


In February 2018, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City finally gave conditional approval for Fourth Corner’s master account. But according to the Marijuana Business Daily, the credit union will not serve plant-touching business. It will cater to “advocacy groups, charities and ancillary companies such as accountants.”


State-chartered banks do not have to be members of the Federal Reserve system. But as it did with Fourth Corners, the Fed can deny any non-member bank or credit union access to its services. In other words, the Federal Reserve can lock any bank attempting to operate in the cannabis industry out of the broader banking system, making it impossible for them to do business with any other bank or merchant. With the passage of SB51, California could just bypass the entire federal banking system and its regulations, and create a self-contained banking network for the marijuana industry.


THE CRYPTO ALTERNATIVE


Some marijuana businesses have circumvented the banking system by transacting in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Technology companies like SinglePoint and POSaBIT have been working to generate a payment method for medical marijuana dispensaries and consumers using bitcoin.






In 2014, SinglePoint placed terminals in some medical marijuana dispensaries that allowed patients to make payments with their debit cards, but the banking system quickly shut it down.


“They were going great,” SinglePoint president Wil Ralston told CNBC. “Then overnight the banks shut them all down. There were no guidelines about how banks were supposed to interact with the cannabis industry. They didn’t want to risk it.”


Ralston started looking into cryptocurrencies. Now, SingleSeed allows dispensaries to accept bitcoin and consumers to pay with it.


Other services like BHCPLS.io are in open beta, but promise to bring Bitcoin Cash (BCH) point-of-sale systems to brick and mortar merchants, something cannabis businesses could find useful.


Some analysts believe the marijuana industry could pave the way for the wider use of cryptos. Leslie Bocskor, president of cannabis advisory and services firm Electrum Partners, told CNBC the cannabis industry may well lead the way in using bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.


“If it finds a way to avoid the traditional banking system, other businesses would follow suit,” Bocskor said.


FEDERAL PROHIBITION


Under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) passed in 1970, the federal government maintains complete prohibition of marijuana. Of course, the federal government lacks any constitutional authority to ban or regulate marijuana within the borders of a state, despite the opinion of the politically connected lawyers on the Supreme Court. If you doubt this, ask yourself why it took a constitutional amendment to institute federal alcohol prohibition.


Legalization of marijuana in California removed a huge layer of laws prohibiting the possession and use of marijuana in the world’s sixth largest economy, something that will be extremely difficult for federal prohibitionists to overcome. FBI statistics show that law enforcement makes approximately 99 of 100 marijuana arrests under state, not federal law. By legalizing cannabis, California essentially sweeps away the basis for 99 percent of marijuana arrests.


Furthermore, figures indicate it would take 40 percent of the DEA’s yearly-budget just to investigate and raid all of the dispensaries in Los Angeles – a single city in a single state. That doesn’t include the cost of prosecution. The lesson? The feds lack the resources to enforce marijuana prohibition without state assistance.


A GROWING MOVEMENT

California is among a growing number of states simply ignoring federal prohibition, and nullifying it in practice.


Colorado, Washington state, Oregon and Alaska were the first states to legalize recreational cannabis, and California, Nevada, Maine and Massachusetts joined them after ballot initiatives in favor of legalization passed in November 2016. Michigan followed suit when voters legalized cannabis for general use in 2018. Vermont became the first state to legalize marijuana through a legislative act in 2018. Illinois followed suit this year.


With 33 states allowing marijuana for medical use, the feds find themselves in a position where they simply can’t enforce prohibition anymore.


“The lesson here is pretty straightforward. When enough people say, ‘No!’ to the federal government, and enough states pass laws backing those people up, there’s not much the feds can do to shove their so-called laws, regulations or mandates down our throats,” Boldin said.


Efforts to expand California’s marijuana law demonstrates another important reality. Once a state puts laws in place legalizing marijuana, it tends to eventually expand. As the state tears down some barriers, markets develop and demand expands. That creates pressure to further relax state law. These bills represent more steps forward for patients seeking alternative treatments and further erosion of unconstitutional federal marijuana prohibition.


WHAT’S NEXT


SB51 will move to the Assembly Appropriations Committee for further consideration where it must pass by a majority vote before moving to the full Assembly. The California legislature will be in summer recess until Aug. 12.

A major technical error has caused Europe’s satellite navigation system to be fully offline since Friday, with most satellites powering the Galileo system broken, the EU’s space agency has said.


Europe’s Galileo system was built to replace the US’ GPS system but, since the outage, users are automatically being switched back to the US positioning system. The Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GNSS) said in a statement on Sunday that “a technical incident related to its ground infrastructure” had caused the problem.


The incident led to the “temporary interruption” of the Galileo services since Friday, with the exception of the Search and Rescue (SAR) service, which locates people in distress situations at sea or on mountains, GNSS said.


         



      

The agency said its experts are working to restore operations “as soon as possible” and that an ‘Anomaly Review Board’ has been set up to analyze the “exact root cause and to implement recovery actions.”


Galileo began providing its services in December 2016 as an alternative to the US system and was expected to be fully deployed by 2020. A status page on the agency’s website shows 22 satellites in the Galileo constellation listed as “not usable” due to “service outage.”


Galileo is owned by the EU and operated by the European Space Agency. A report in industry publication Inside GNSS on Saturday claimed that a Precise Timing Facility based in Italy was to blame for the outage.
