“She was asked what she had learned from the Holocaust, and she said that 10 percent of any population is cruel, no matter what, and that 10 percent is merciful, no matter what, and that the remaining 80 percent could be moved in either direction.”—Kurt Vonnegut


Please spare me the media hysterics and the outrage and the hypocritical double standards of those whose moral conscience appears to be largely dictated by their political loyalties.


Anyone who believes that the injustices, cruelties and vicious callousness of the U.S. government are unique to the Trump Administration has not been paying attention.


No matter what the team colors might be at any given moment, the playbook remains the same. The leopard has not changed its spots. Scrape off the surface layers and you will find that the American police state that is continuing to wreak havoc on the rights of the people under the Trump Administration is the same police state that wreaked havoc on the rights of the people under every previous administration.


Brace yourselves.


         



      

While we squabble over which side is winning this losing battle, a tsunami approaches.


Case in point: in Charlottesville, Va.—home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, champion of the Bill of Rights, and the nation’s third president—city councilors in a quest for so-called “equity” have proposed eliminating Jefferson’s birthday as a city holiday (which has been on the books since 1945) and replacing it with a day that commemorates the liberation of area slaves following the arrival of Union troops under Gen. Philip Sheridan.


In this way, while the populace wages war over past injustices, injustice in the here and now continues to trample innocent lives underfoot. In Charlottesville, as in the rest of the country, little is being done to stem the tide of the institutional racism that has resulted in disproportionate numbers of black Americans being stopped, frisked, shot at, arrested and jailed.


Just recently, in fact, Phoenix police drew their guns, shouted profanities, assaulted and threatened to shoot a black couple whose 4-year-old daughter allegedly stole a doll from a dollar store. The footage of the incident—in which the cops threaten to shoot the pregnant, young mother in the head in the presence of the couple’s 1- and 4-year-old daughters—is horrifying in every way.


Tell me again why it’s more important to spend valuable political capital debating the birthdays of dead presidents rather than proactively working to put a stop to a government mindset that teaches cops it’s okay to treat citizens of any color with brutality and a blatant disregard for their rights?


It doesn’t matter that Phoenix and Charlottesville are 2100 miles apart. The lethal practices of the American police state are the same all over.


No amount of dissembling can shield us from the harsh reality that the danger in our midst is posed by an entrenched government bureaucracy that has no regard for the Constitution, Congress, the courts or the citizenry.


We’ve got to get our priorities straight if we are to ever have any hope of maintaining any sense of freedom in America. As long as we allow ourselves to be distracted, diverted, occasionally outraged, always polarized and content to view each other—rather than the government—as the enemy, we’ll never manage to present a unified front against tyranny (or government corruption and ineptitude) in any form.


Mind you, by “government,” I’m not referring to the highly partisan, two-party bureaucracy of the Republicans and Democrats. Rather, I’m referring to “government” with a capital “G,” the entrenched Deep State that is unaffected by elections, unaltered by populist movements, and has set itself beyond the reach of the law.


This is the hidden face of a government that has no respect for the freedoms of its citizenry.


So stop with all of the excuses and the hedging and the finger-pointing and the pissing contests to see which side can out-shout, out-blame and out-spew the other. Enough already with the short- and long-term amnesia that allows political sycophants to conveniently forget the duplicity, complicity and mendacity of their own party while casting blame on everyone else.


This is how evil wins.


This is how freedom falls and tyranny rises.


This is how good, generally decent people—having allowed themselves to be distracted with manufactured crises, polarizing politics, and fighting that divides the populace into warring us vs. them camps—fail to take note of the looming danger that threatens to wipe freedom from the map and place us all in chains.


Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by the antics of the political ruling class that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware. Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware. And anytime you have a government so far removed from its people as to ensure that they are never seen, heard or heeded by those elected to represent them, you’d better beware.


The world has been down this road before.


As historian Milton Mayer recounts in his seminal book on Hitler’s rise to power, They Thought They Were Free:


Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about—we were decent people‑—and kept us so busy with continuous changes and ‘crises’ and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the ‘national enemies’, without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us.


We are no longer living the American Dream. We’re living the American Lie.


Indeed, Americans have been lied to so sincerely, so incessantly, and for so long by politicians of all stripes—who lie compulsively and without any seeming remorse—that they’ve almost come to prefer the lies trotted out by those in government over less-palatable truths.


The American people have become compulsive believers: left-leaning Americans are determined to believe that the world has become a far more dangerous place under Trump, while right-leaning Americans are equally convinced that Trump has set us on a path to prosperity and security.


Nothing has changed.


The police state is still winning. We the people are still losing.


In fact, the American police state has continued to advance at the same costly, intrusive, privacy-sapping, Constitution-defying, heartbreaking, soul-scorching, relentless pace under the current Tyrant-in-Chief as it did under those who occupied the White House before him (Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.).


Police haven’t stopped disregarding the rights of citizens. Having been given the green light to probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip, shoot and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts, America’s law enforcement officials are no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace. Indeed, they continue to keep the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies and slaves rather than citizens.


SWAT teams haven’t stopped crashing through doors and terrorizing families. Nationwide, SWAT teams continue to be employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activities or mere community nuisances including angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession. With more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans for relatively routine police matters and federal agencies laying claim to their own heavily armed law enforcement divisions, the incidence of botched raids and related casualties continue to rise.






The Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security haven’t stopped militarizing and federalizing local police. Police forces continue to be transformed into heavily armed extensions of the military, complete with jackboots, helmets, shields, batons, pepper-spray, stun guns, assault rifles, body armor, miniature tanks and weaponized drones. In training police to look and act like the military and use the weapons and tactics of war against American citizens, the government continues to turn the United States into a battlefield and “we the people” into enemy combatants.


Schools haven’t stopped treating young people like hard-core prisoners. School districts continue to team up with law enforcement to create a “schoolhouse to jailhouse track” by imposing a “double dose” of punishment for childish infractions: suspension or expulsion from school, accompanied by an arrest by the police and a trip to juvenile court. In this way, the paradigm of abject compliance to the state continues to be taught by example in the schools, through school lockdowns where police and drug-sniffing dogs enter the classroom, and zero tolerance policies that punish all offenses equally and result in young people being expelled for childish behavior.


For-profit private prisons haven’t stopped locking up Americans and immigrants alike at taxpayer expense. States continue to outsource prison management to private corporations out to make a profit at taxpayer expense. And how do you make a profit in the prison industry? Have the legislatures pass laws that impose harsh penalties for the slightest noncompliance in order keep the prison cells full and corporate investors happy.


Censorship hasn’t stopped. First Amendment activities continue to be pummeled, punched, kicked, choked, chained and generally gagged all across the country. The reasons for such censorship vary widely from political correctness, safety concerns and bullying to national security and hate crimes but the end result remained the same: the complete eradication of what Benjamin Franklin referred to as the “principal pillar of a free government.”


The courts haven’t stopped marching in lockstep with the police state. The courts continue to be dominated by technicians and statists who are deferential to authority, whether government or business. Indeed, the Supreme Court’s decisions in recent years have most often been characterized by an abject deference to government authority, military and corporate interests.


Government bureaucrats haven’t stopped turning American citizens into criminals. The average American now unknowingly commits three felonies a day, thanks to an overabundance of vague laws that render otherwise innocent activity illegal, while reinforcing the power of the police state and its corporate allies.


The surveillance state hasn’t stopped spying on Americans’ communications, transactions or movements. On any given day, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether it’s your local police, a fusion center, the National Security Agency or one of the government’s many corporate partners, is still monitoring and tracking your every move.


The TSA hasn’t stopped groping or ogling travelers. Under the pretext of protecting the nation’s infrastructure (roads, mass transit systems, water and power supplies, telecommunications systems and so on) against criminal or terrorist attacks, TSA task forces (comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosive detection canine teams) continue to do random security sweeps of nexuses of transportation, including ports, railway and bus stations, airports, ferries and subways, as well as political conventions, baseball games and music concerts. Sweep tactics include the use of x-ray technology, pat-downs and drug-sniffing dogs, among other things.


Congress hasn’t stopped enacting draconian laws such as the USA Patriot Act and the NDAA. These laws—which completely circumvent the rule of law and the constitutional rights of American citizens, continue to re-orient our legal landscape in such a way as to ensure that martial law, rather than the rule of law, our U.S. Constitution, becomes the map by which we navigate life in the United States.


The Department of Homeland Security hasn’t stopped being a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast.” Indeed, this is the agency that is notorious for militarizing the police and SWAT teams; spying on activists, dissidents and veterans; stockpiling ammunition; distributing license plate readers; contracting to build detention camps; tracking cell-phones with Stingray devices; carrying out military drills and lockdowns in American cities; using the TSA as an advance guard; conducting virtual strip searches with full-body scanners; carrying out soft target checkpoints; directing government workers to spy on Americans; conducting widespread spying networks using fusion centers; carrying out Constitution-free border control searches; funding city-wide surveillance cameras; and utilizing drones and other spybots.


The military industrial complex hasn’t stopped profiting from endless wars abroad. America’s expanding military empire continues to bleed the country dry at a rate of more than $15 billion a month (or $20 million an hour). The Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety. Yet what most Americans fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe and everything to do with enriching the military industrial complex at taxpayer expense.


The Deep State’s shadow government hasn’t stopped calling the shots behind the scenes. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government continues to be the real reason “we the people” have no real control over our so-called representatives. It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tactics.


And the American people haven’t stopped acting like gullible sheep. In fact, many Americans have been so carried away by their blind rank-and-file partisan devotion to their respective political gods that they have lost sight of the one thing that has remained constant in recent years: our freedoms are steadily declining. And it doesn’t really matter whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican at the helm, because the bureaucratic mindset on both sides of the aisle now seems to embody the same philosophy of authoritarian government.


So you can try to persuade yourself that you are free, that you still live in a country that values freedom, and that it is not too late to make America great again, but to anyone who has been paying attention to America’s decline over the past 50 years, it will be just another lie.


The German people chose to ignore the truth and believe the lie.


They were not oblivious to the horrors taking place around them. As historian Robert Gellately points out, “[A]nyone in Nazi Germany who wanted to find out about the Gestapo, the concentration camps, and the campaigns of discrimination and persecutions need only read the newspapers.”

The warning signs were definitely there, blinking incessantly like large neon signs.


“Still,” Gellately writes, “the vast majority voted in favor of Nazism, and in spite of what they could read in the press and hear by word of mouth about the secret police, the concentration camps, official anti-Semitism, and so on. . . . [T]here is no getting away from the fact that at that moment, ‘the vast majority of the German people backed him.’”


Half a century later, the wife of a prominent German historian, neither of whom were members of the Nazi party, opined: “

  • n the whole, everyone felt well. . . . And there were certainly eighty percent who lived productively and positively throughout the time. . . . We also had good years. We had wonderful years.”


In other words, as long as their creature comforts remained undiminished, as long as their bank accounts remained flush, as long as they weren’t being discriminated against, persecuted, starved, beaten, shot, stripped, jailed and turned into slave labor, life was good.


Life is good in America, too.


Life is good in America as long as you’re not one of the hundreds of migrant children (including infants, toddlers, preschoolers) being detained in unsanitary conditions by U.S. Border Patrol without proper access to food and water, made to sleep on concrete floors, go without a shower for weeks on end, and only allowed to brush your teeth once every 10 days.


Life is good in America as long as you don’t have to come face to face with a trigger-happy cop hyped up on the power of the badge, trained to shoot first and ask questions later, and disposed to view people of color as a suspect class.


Life is good in America as long as you’re able to keep sleep-walking through life, cocooning yourself in political fantasies that depict a world in which your party is always right and everyone else is wrong, and distracting yourself with bread-and-circus entertainment that bears no resemblance to reality.


Life is good in America as long as you’ve got enough money to spare that you don’t mind being made to pay through the nose for the government’s endless wars, subsidization of foreign nations, military empire, welfare state, roads to nowhere, bloated workforce, secret agencies, fusion centers, private prisons, biometric databases, invasive technologies, arsenal of weapons, and every other budgetary line item that is contributing to the fast-growing wealth of the corporate elite at the expense of those who are barely making ends meet—that is, we the 99%.


Life is good in America for the privileged few, but as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it’s getting worse by the day for the rest of us.

This week, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill that will legalize marijuana for recreational use throughout the state. Illinois will now be the 11th state in the US to legalize the substance for recreational use. The bill will allow residents of the state to purchase and possess up to one ounce of cannabis at a time. Non-residents will be limited to just 15 grams.


“Change is hard, but an essential tenet of good governance is recognizing the need to change the laws that have failed. In the past 50 years, the war on cannabis has destroyed families, filled prisons with nonviolent offenders and disproportionately disrupted black and brown communities,” Pritzker said during a press conference before he signed the bill.


“With this legislation, our state once again is a leader, putting forward the most equity-centric cannabis legalization in the nation,” he added.


         



      

The bill also goes a step further to expunge the criminal records for anyone who was arrested for purchasing or possessing 30 grams or less.


The new law will go into effect on January 1, 2020, and will allow adults over the age of 21 to purchase the plant from approved dispensaries. However, until then, possession will still be a crime in the state.


The governor initially projected that taxation of cannabis industry could generate $800 million to $1 billion a year, but more recent estimations suggest that $500 million annually is a more realistic number, and it could take the state at least 5 years to get to that point.


As with cannabis in most other legal US states, the sales will be taxed heavily. Consumers in Illinois can expect a tax of up to 34.75% on all of their purchases. The taxes will reportedly fluctuate depending on the potency of the product.


Money raised by the new taxes would first be dedicated to expunging about 770,000 minor cannabis-related cases, according to USA Today.


There were also provisions in the bill intending to prevent monopolization and corruption in the newly legal cannabis industry. For example, a conflict of interest provision bans state employees and their family members from being able to get a cannabis business license for at least two years.






The industry will also bring many new jobs to the state as it has in other areas where cannabis has been legalized.


A 2015 study, published in the journal, Scientific Reports, suggests that smoking cannabis is roughly 114 times safer than drinking alcohol. Ironically, out of all the drugs that were researched in the study, alcohol was actually the most dangerous, and it was the only legal drug on the list.


A study published last year by researchers at the University of Michigan has shown that cannabis use among teens and college students is increasing while alcohol and tobacco use is declining. In fact, for the first time ever, the rate of daily cannabis use has now surpassed the rate of daily cigarette use. This is a great discovery considering the fact that cigarettes and alcohol kill tens of thousands a year while marijuana kills no one.


Earlier this year, Truth Theory reported that The World Health Organization (WHO) has finally recognized cannabis as a medicine and has formally proposed that legislators take a “more rational” approach to drug laws.

google smart cityBy Derrick Broze


The “Smart City” Quayside project in Toronto, Canada continues to receive criticism from privacy advocates as well as current and former members of the project.


Quayside is a smart city located on 12 acres of waterfront property southeast of downtown Toronto, Canada. The city represents a joint effort by the Canadian government agency Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs, which is owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. Sidewalk Labs claims Quayside will solve the problems of traffic congestion, rising home prices and environmental pollution.


There are even plans for housing developments and a school within the smart city. However, Quayside has consistently faced pushback due to a failure to build-in the necessary privacy protections.


         



      

The Guardian recently reported that US venture capitalist Roger McNamee warned that tech companies like Google cannot be trusted to safely manage the data they collect on residents. McNamee wrote to Toronto’s city council warning them that Quayside is “the most highly evolved version to date of” something called “surveillance capitalism.” McNamee told the council that Google will use “algorithms to nudge human behavior” in ways that “favor its business.” McNamee is co-founder of Silver Lake Partners, one of the world’s largest technology investors and one of the early investors in Google and Facebook.


No matter what Google is offering, the value to Toronto cannot possibly approach the value your city is giving up. It is a dystopian vision that has no place in a democratic society.


McNamee has not been the only voice warning about the dangers of the Quayside project. The Guardian also notes that Jim Balsille, co-founder of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion, called the project “a colonizing experiment in surveillance capitalism attempting to bulldoze important urban, civic and political issues.”


At least two officials involved in the project have also resigned. Saadia Muzaffar resigned from Waterfront Toronto, the advisory panel responsible for Quayside, after the board showed “apathy and a lack of leadership regarding shaky public trust.”

Recently, Ann Cavoukian, one of Canada’s leading privacy experts and Ontario’s former privacy commissioner, became the latest person to resign from the project. Cavoukian was brought on by Sidewalk Toronto as a consultant to help install a “privacy by design” framework. She was initially told that all data collected from residents would be deleted and rendered unidentifiable. She later learned that third parties would be able to access identifiable information gathered at Quayside and decided to resign.


“I imagined us creating a Smart City of Privacy, as opposed to a Smart City of Surveillance,” Cavoukian wrote in her resignation letter.


Despite the many concerns and vocal opponents, Sidewalk Labs has released their master plan for Quayside, including plans to expand the project. The Toronto Star reports that Sidewalk Labs is calling for “an independent, government-sanctioned data trust to establish responsible data-use guidelines, approve and oversee proposed collections of urban data, make publicly accessible data that could be considered a public asset and improve transparency.” Sidewalk has claimed they will not sell personal data gathered as part of the smart city project and will not use personal information for advertising purposes.


Beyond the health and privacy concerns related to the project, it’s important to consider what the roll-out of this technology means for someone who does not consent to the technology. Residents cannot simply go in their homes or easily opt out of it, as it is everywhere. Julie Di Lorenzo, a real estate developer who left Waterfront’s board in July, explained to the AP that she wanted to know if those who didn’t opt-in would be told that they can’t live there.

5G cell towerBy Catherine J. Frompovich


How would YOU like to have apparent 5G antennas similar to the parallel arrays on the roof of the house below in Downington, Pennsylvania?  That may become an extremely scary reality IF and WHEN mass 5G rollouts spread across towns, boroughs, cities, counties and states across the USA!


downington cell towerSource: Email from Beverly DeCer Photo taken from train to Harrisburg, PA
for June 18, 2019 hearing on 5G House Bill 1400, which then was canceled
due to apparent negative protests against 5G.


         



      

Several questions MUST be asked resulting from the photograph above.



What measurable amounts of RF millimeter waves are capable of being transmitted from each of those antennas?
Can there be—or is there—a “cumulative effect” from both transmitters? If so, what is it?
Where is the independent—not vested-interest, microwave industry, REAL scientific, not “consensus science”PROOF any of the various GENERATIONS of microwaves, especially 5G millimeter waves, used in global commerce are biologically and physiologically safe for humans, pets, the environment, insect pollinators and birds, including weather manipulation, i.e., weather geoengineering, aka Solar Radar Management (SRM)?
How will such 5G antennas affect neighbors, pets, birds and bees, and all life forms in general?
Why do the Federal Communications Commission AND states regulatory agencies in the USA swallow “hook, line and sinker” outrageous vested-interest ‘consensus science’ rather than include in their legal considerations the literal thousands upon thousands of independent science studies proving RF/MM wave, non-thermal adverse harms to humans and the environment?
Is 5G the ultimate plan for absolute control of the human race?

More reporting will follow as I get updates from those working to defeat proposed 5G legislation in Harrisburg. Pennsylvania is not an anomaly regarding activism to get VALID and REAL safety concerns answered.






Shouldn’t the FCC begin with obtaining the military’s science regarding 5G, its “weaponized microwaves” crowd control system?


Many thanks to Beverly DeCer, and all activists everywhere, who are shining light on the apparent 5G science fiasco about to be pulled off on unsuspecting high tech consumers.

telecom mergerBy B.N. Frank


In February, telecom industry representatives gave congressional testimony that they have no scientific evidence that 5G is safe.  Many studies have proved it’s not.  Despite this and the growing U.S. opposition to 5G from cybersecurity experts, doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, scientists, and the U.S. Navy, the despicable “Race for 5G” continues and Sprint and T-Mobile want a more competitive edge in unleashing it too.  It’s all very gross.


Activist Post reported about the original 10 states that filed a lawsuit against this merger.  Four more have joined them.


         



      

From RCRWireless:



Reuters reported that the chief of the antitrust bureau in the New York attorney general’s office said during a Friday hearing on the case that Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Nevada will be listed on an amended complaint that would be filed with the court. That amended complaint was not yet available on Monday morning.


Those four states have joined the state AGs, led by New York and California and including the District of Columbia, which filed a suit in Southern District of New York earlier this month seeking to head off the merger before the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission give their final decisions on whether to allow it.


The state attorneys general of Colorado, California, New York, Wisconsin, Maryland, Mississippi, Michigan, Connecticut, Virginia and the District of Columbia originally filed the suit. In their filing, they argued that the merger will harm competition and that “preserving vigorous competition for mobile wireless telecommunications services is essential to ensure continued innovation and low prices for American consumers.


[…]


Although the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission have not yet officially weighed in on the merger, the outlook appeared positive for the New T-Mobile (as the would-be merged company is called) in recent weeks. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai indicated that the merger has his support after public commitments from T-Mobile US and Sprint on items such as its timeline for nationwide 5G deployment, service to rural areas and divesting prepaid brand Boost Mobile. FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr also said publicly that he will support the merger.



The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry.  They’ve been doing the exact opposite for many years now.  FCC employees – especially Brendan Carr and Ajit Pai – have taken this to a whole new level of selling out (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

The War on Cash isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s an open agenda. It’s being driven by an alignment of interests among bankers, central bankers, politicians, and Silicon Valley moguls who stand to benefit from an all-digital economy.


Last week, Facebook – in partnership with major banks, payment processors, and e-commerce companies – launched a digital currency called Libra. Unlike decentralized, free-floating cryptocurrencies, Libra will be tied to national fiat currencies, integrated into the financial system, and centrally managed.


Critics warn Libra is akin to a “spy coin.” It’s certainly not for anyone who wants to go off the financial grid.


         



      

Many of the companies involved in Libra (including Facebook itself) routinely ban users on the basis of their political views. Big Tech has booted scores of individuals and groups off social platforms for engaging in “far right” speech. If Libra one day becomes the predominant online payment method, then political dissidents could effectively be banned from all e-commerce.


You can still obtain some degree of anonymity in the offline world by using paper cash. But that will become impossible in the cashless future envisioned by bankers.


Last week, Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan touted new developments in digital payment systems while speaking at a Fortune conference. He said, “We want a cashless society…we have more to gain than anybody from a pure operating costs.”


They gain – at the expense of our financial privacy. A cashless society is the end of a long road to monetary ruin that began many decades ago with the abandonment of sound money backed by gold and silver.

(ANTIWAR.COM) — While officials have denied that there was any political component to the US not attacking Iran on Thursday, a newly released poll from Hill-HarrisX, taken over the weekend, shows that a strong majority of American voters oppose such an attack.


The poll showed 58 percent favored a non-military approach, with 48 percent calling for diplomacy and nine percent saying the US should take no action at all. By contrast, only 5 percent supported a war, and another 19 percent wanted “limited” attacks.


         



      


A majority remained against an attack in all parties, and all age groups, with 67% of Democrats calling for non-military options, 54 percent of independents, and a slight majority of Republicans.


With overwhelmingly more people in every category imaginable opposed to the idea of a war with Iran, the perennial hawks who have been trying to foment an Iran war for generations clearly still have an uphill battle, and a public that still isn’t buying their push.

One of the NFL’s premiere franchises, the New England Patriots is using “Evolve Edge” millimeter wave/facial recognition scanners to identify fans before they enter Gillette Stadium.


According to Evolv Edge’s brochure, their scanners use facial recognition to identify everyone.


The automated, consistent screening eliminates guard fatigue and subjectivity so there’s fewer complaints and no profiling while providing better threat detection. The system can scan everyone and their bag including those with medical devices and pregnant women. In addition, facial recognition can be integrated to identify people who are prohibited from an environment.


         



      


Evolv’s scanners are designed to make it easy for private corporations and law enforcement to create blacklists of suspicious people.


Evolve Edge keeps unwanted visitors out with integrated face recognition. Evolv Edge, captures facial images of visitors, via a built-in camera, and matches them against a locally defined gallery.


Because nothing says freedom quite like being placed on a so-called “locally defined gallery” (secret blacklist).


Across the country, Evolv Edge’s millimeter waves are secretly scanning Americans without their knowledge.


The Evolv Edge is in wide use for for visitor, employee and VIP screening at top entertainment venues, international airports, stadiums, corporations, hospitals, large scale events and national landmarks worldwide. (For more information about Evolv Edge and stadium security click here.)


Gillette Stadium and the TD Garden have also been using FanCam to identify every fan since 2017.


The cameras — the number of which depends on the configuration of the stadium — take multiple images at many different points in a game. Those shots are then put together to form one large composite 360-degree view of every fan in the stadium for a given game.


Gillette Stadium identifies fans before they enter the stadium


A recent Evolve Technology study, reveals how Gillette security spies on fans.


Gillette Stadium uses Evolve to whitelist and blacklist fans, calling out “valued customers” (VIPS) by name.


For example, we’ve integrated face recognition into the Edge. With this added functionality, security personnel will be able to greet trusted guests and valued customers by name, and speed them through the screening process—think TSA Precheck.


Gillette Stadium plans to use facial recognition cameras to identify fans,


By adding face recognition, we can now help address both sides of this equation. Venues will be able to maintain both “verify” lists for employees, repeat customers and important guests, as well as “detect” lists –for example, known gate-crashers or people who have been banned from the stadium.


Just how easy is it for someone to be blacklisted by Gillette Security?


According to Gillette Stadium’s “Code of Conduct” page, fans can be blacklisted for exercising their right to free speech among others things.



Exhibiting behavior that is unruly, disruptive, irresponsible or illegal in nature
Using foul, abusive or offensive language or making obscene gestures.
Interfering with any ongoing event, business activity or the enjoyment of others.
Engaging in public intoxication
Verbally or physically harassing any of our guests or staff.
Advertising or selling goods or services.
Smoking or vaping. Gillette Stadium is a non-smoking facility.
Violating the terms of any applicable admission ticket license, policy or related laws.
Failure to follow instructions of security personnel or law enforcement.





If a fan wants to be removed from Gillette Stadium’s blacklist, they must pay $250.00 and take a “4 Hour Online Fan Code Of Conduct Class” that teaches people things like “communication skills as prevention (Foul or abusive language or obscene gesture) [and] skills for becoming less impulsive and improving judgment.”


Forcing blacklisted fans to take a “Code of Conduct” class, essentially turns stadiums into the Nanny State.


Evolv Technology’s study shows just how much the Nanny State has become synonymous with stadiums and public venues.


Evolv Technology’s CEO, Mike Ellenbogen, explains his close relationship with Gillette Stadium’s head of security, Mark Briggs, and describes how they worked together to identify fans before they even enter the stadium.


Our vision—and TeamOps —is to use advanced connected sensors along with face and image recognition to identify potential threats as soon as they arrive on property or come in sight of the venue. Should our cameras spot someone of interest, or who might be carrying a suspicious object, we can give our law enforcement partners a heads up so they can take the appropriate action before the person gets within range to do major damage. Our credo is prevent, don’t just react.


Private corporations notifying police of a suspicious or blacklisted fan before they enter a venue is extremely disturbing. Why? Because the public has no way of knowing why someone has been put on a blacklist since private corporations are exempt from FOIAs,


Unfortunately, Evolv Technology is not alone in scanning people in public places. HEXWAVE, makes its money by scanning people in malls and retail stores from Florida, to Southeast Georgia.


“Malls welcome hundreds – if not thousands – of visitors daily, including children and families. These are public spaces that face a security challenge with high volumes of foot traffic and multiple entry points,” said Bill Riker, Liberty’s CEO. “By providing a security solution that is modular, scalable, and capable of providing layered protection to identify threats before they evolve into an attack, we believe that we can make these spaces safer for patrons and merchants alike.”


In Utah, HEXWAVE plans to scan people in just about every public venue imaginable, scanning them during “non-business hours to get system exposure to the full range of potential operating conditions to include environmental, frequency/volume of use or other operating conditions to which HEXWAVE would be subjected.”




American Natural Superfood - Free Sample



Companies like Evolv and HEXWAVE have close ties to the U.S. military and Homeland Security.


Evolv boasts about receiving Homeland Security’s “Safety Act Designation” and has numerous DHS, CIA and FBI advisors on their Board. Liberty Defense’s CEO used to work for the U.S. Department of Defense and General Dynamics.


With so many signs pointing towards Homeland Security and the Feds, is it any wonder that we are seeing facial recognition scanners popping up in public venues?


Can anything stop the spread of public facial recognition scanners?


Mark Briggs said it best, “I’ve never been told I can’t do something that will enhance security at the stadium.” And that is the moral of this story: there are no laws stopping private corporations from turning public venues into a mirror-image of the TSA.

Hackers have broken into the systems of more than a dozen global telecom companies and taken large amounts of personal and corporate data, researchers from a cyber security company said on Tuesday, identifying links to previous Chinese cyber-espionage campaigns.


Investigators at U.S.-Israeli cybersecurity firm Cybereason said the attackers compromised companies in more than 30 countries and aimed to gather information on individuals in government, law enforcement and politics.


The hackers also used tools linked to other attacks attributed to Beijing by the United States and its Western allies, said Lior Div, chief executive of Cybereason.


         



      

“For this level of sophistication, it’s not a criminal group. It is a government that has capabilities that can do this kind of attack,” he told Reuters.


China has repeatedly denied involvement in any hacking activity.


Cybereason declined to name the companies affected or the countries they operate in, but people familiar with Chinese hacking operations said Beijing was increasingly targeting telcos in Western Europe.


Western countries have moved to call out Beijing for its actions in cyberspace, warning that Chinese hackers have compromised companies and government agencies around the world to steal valuable commercial secrets and personal data for espionage purposes.


Div said this latest campaign, which his team uncovered over the last nine months, compromised the internal IT network of some of those targeted, allowing the attackers to customize the infrastructure and steal vast amounts of data.


In some instances, they managed to compromise a target’s entire active directory, giving them access to every username and password in the organization. They also got hold of personal data, including billing information and call records, Cybereason said in a blog post.


“They built a perfect espionage environment,” said Div, a former commander in Israel’s military intelligence unit 8200. “They could grab information as they please on the targets that they are interested in.”


Cybereason said multiple tools used by the attackers had previously been used by a Chinese hacking group known as APT10.


The United States indicted two alleged members of APT10 in December and joined other Western countries in denouncing the group’s attacks on global technology service providers to steal intellectual property from their clients.
