The Rise of Big Surveillance: How Oakland Pushed Back and Won!

The Domain Awareness Center (DAC) was a planned surveillance hub which aimed to integrate public and private cameras and sensors all over the City of Oakland into one $11,000,000 mass surveillance system. After mounting opposition to the DAC in 2013 and 2014, catalyzed by the Oakland Privacy Working Group, the Oakland City Council voted on March 4, 2014 to restrict the DAC to operate solely within the Port of Oakland. It also removed citywide ShotSpotter (a gunshot detection system theoretically capable of overhearing conversations) and city traffic cameras from the system, and required any further expansion or information-sharing decisions to come before the Council for approval. Integrated, mass surveillance is highly controversial, and not only in Oakland: many US cities, and other cities worldwide, watched closely to see Oakland’s example play out.

#NVDemConvention Results Reported Hours Before Vote #NV64


Somehow hours before the vote happened final results were reported by the APP on a local Nevada news sure. Official results have Bernie losing by 31 votes yet at the end of the official vote a petition signed by 64 saying their vote was denied was presented, only be told to present their complaint at the #DNC

#NVDemConvention Results Reported Hours Before Vote #NV64

Some how hours before the Nevada Democratic Convention vote actually happened, the final result of the vote were somehow reported by the AP via local Nevada news station.

How does a news outlet report final vote results hours before the actual vote occurs?

Adding to the scandal, the official vote has Hillary Clinton winning by 31 votes, but after the vote was conducted a petition was presented with the signature of 64 Bernie Sander supporters saying they were suppressed from being allowed to vote. The response to the petition was to tell the voters to present their complaint at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

BUNDY RANCH PPOLITICAL PRISONER DROPS BOMBSHELL FROM JAIL: US GOVERNMENT WILL PANIC WHEN THIS COMES OUT

Reporter and political prisoner Pete Santilli of The Pete Santilli Show dropped a bombshell from jail earlier this week. He claims that the information below, once it comes out in the open in court, will have the US government in a panic.

“It is documented and we have the documentation,” he continued. “We will be going through the court system appropriately, but the entire Bundy Ranch debacle and what Cliven Bundy said on that stage to that Sheriff… unfortunately, these buffoon people that the US government’s US Attorney’s Office actually put on the record that Nevada, part of the Hidalgo Treaty and all this stuff is absolute lunacy that they are lining us all up about an incident that took place in Clark County Nevada that has never been part of federal lands since 1866.”

BREAKING: 12 States Stand Up Against Obama’s Unlawful Trans Bathroom Decree

Barack Obama went way too far with his unconstitutional overreach in attempting to require “transgender-compliant” restrooms, showers and locker rooms in all public places across America.

And the massive backlash is spreading fast. So far 12 states have condemned Obama’s outrageous decree.

Now other states have jumped on board, defending North Carolina and the state’s rights to set these guidelines themselves without federal interference. At the very least, they want Congress to establish guidelines and not the Executive Branch.

Real Change Only Comes When Millions Unite and Fight Back

Why is it in America we massive level of wealth and income inequality? Why is it that I am working longer hours at lower wages and the wealth is going to the top 1%? Why is it that middle class has been disappearing for over 30 years? Why are we the only major country on earth that doesn't provide paid family and medical leave? That doesn't provide healthcare for all people? Why do we have the highest rate of childhood poverty in the world? Why are out inner cities and infrastructure throughout this country collapsing?

Why? People are beginning to catch on. Once you start asking those questions and once you get involved politically what seems so hard yesterday will not be so hard tomorrow.

The same thing with all of the other struggles for workers rights, for civil rights, for women's rights , for gay rights... what we are fighting for a country and a government that works for all of us and not just the one 1%.

‘Many are invited; few accept’: Is the awakened’s role pointing to psychopathic .01% Empire to present a basic choice: serve Divine Justice OR be served to face Divine Justice?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The story of Matthew 22:1-14 is Jesus stating that the choice for heaven is just this easy: accept the invitation.

To make this perfectly clear, the parable contrasts what not to do: don’t attack the messengers (more here).

The story ends with the famous line:

“Many are invited; but few accept.”

The story of Earth 2016 includes messengers for “heaven on Earth” (and here) technical solutions available here and now for all imaginable problems. Our history of inviting humans to accept this invitation seems to include the same punchline: “Many are invited; but few accept.”

But perhaps that is our mission, despite the ridiculous Emperor’s New Clothes facts in ~100 crucial areas for anyone caring to look, including:

Unlawful and lie-began wars.

Bernie: #FreeCollege Should Be A Right - We Need A Revolution

Bernie Sanders explains that providing free public college is not a radical idea. Instead it is an idea whose time will come and it is our job to make it come sooner rather than later.

But how will it be paid for? A few years ago Wall Street drove this country to the worse economic recession since the great depression.

Wall street is doing just fine today and taxing their speculation that caused the Financial Collapse of #2008 would bring in more than enough money to provide free public college to everyone and help massively reduce current student debt.

Ontario Proposes Forced Reeducation For Parents Who Choose To Not Vaccinate Their Children

68 Years of the Palestinian Ongoing Nakba !

Nakba, in Arabic, simply means, Catastrophe, or Tragedy; for Palestinians, it is the most tragic nightmare to happen to a whole nation in modern history.

The irony is that while Palestinian commemorating the 68th anniversary of their Catastrophe, the Palestinian exodus, Israelis celebrate what they call “independence day”.

After 68 years of Nakba this is a reminder to the Free and Democratic World, that there will be no peace in this region if Palestinian Nakba continues, and if this conflict will not have a just end.

First Oregon standoff defendant pleads guilty

Scott Willingham, who was part of the security team during the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing government property.

Willingham was accused of taking or converting government-owned cameras for his own use. He faced two counts of theft of government property but entered a guilty plea in federal court in Portland to one count. The other was dismissed.

Willingham, 49, was with occupation spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum on Jan. 15 when Finicum took down surveillance cameras at a substation six miles from Burns.

Under a plea agreement, he's expected to face six months in prison followed by two years of supervised release. He's agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation and spend up to 120 days at a residential re-entry program or treatment center.

THE PENTAGON IS BUILDING A ‘SELF-AWARE’ KILLER ROBOT ARMY FUELED BY SOCIAL MEDIA

Official US defence and NATO documents confirm that autonomous weapon systems will kill targets, including civilians, based on tweets, blogs and Instagram

An unclassified 2016 Department of Defense (DoD) document, the Human Systems Roadmap Review, reveals that the US military plans to create artificially intelligent (AI) autonomous weapon systems, which will use predictive social media analytics to make decisions on lethal force with minimal human involvement. Despite official insistence that humans will retain a “meaningful” degree of control over autonomous weapon systems, this and other Pentagon documents dated from 2015 to 2016 confirm that US military planners are already developing technologies designed to enable swarms of “self-aware” interconnected robots to design and execute kill operations against robot-selected targets.

Straight into the paper shredder: Texas responds to Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate

The Obama administration just released a mandate on Friday forcing all educators to allow students use bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity rather than their biological sex. The mandate has been extremely controversial, affecting all public schools and most colleges and universities that are federally funded.

“I got news for President Barack Obama,” Port Neches-Groves (Texas) Superintendent Rodney Canvass told 12News. “He ain’t my President and he can’t tell me what to do. That letter is going straight to the paper shredder. I have 5 daughters myself and I have 2,500 girls in my protection. Their moms and dads expect me to protect them. And that is what I am going to do. Now I don’t want them bullied… but there are accommodations that can be made short of this. He is destroying the very fiber of this country. He is not a leader. He is a failure.”

Lawsuits Challenge Tech Giants Large-Scale Biometric Collection

The lawsuit could be a massive step toward privacy rights in the twenty first century by keeping corporations from snatching up more of our personal data.

Under Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act, nobody in the state of Illinois is allowed to collect biometric identifiers whether they be fingerprints, face prints, or DNA, without a person’s explicit consent...

On the Misuse Anti-Semitism - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The Zionists have declared that there is no difference between the State of Israel and the worldwide community of Jews and therefore, if you are opposed to Israel you are anti-Semitic. This identification of Israel and the Jews en masse is historically, demographically, and certainly religiously false. But no matter, the Zionists shout this redefinition loudly and endlessly. And, by backing their claim with political pressure and a lot of money, they have managed to get it accepted in some Western political circles. This, then, is what constitutes the misuse for political purposes of a dangerous racial prejudice.

Country Artist Debuts New Song Opposing War In Syria, Iran, Iraq

By Brandon Turbeville

Previous Material Decries Drug War, Praises Psychedelics

When Sturgill Simpson took the stage on the Daily Show to debut his song “Call To Arms” to a national television audience, the message was clear – “Something new is happening in country music.” In fact, it was clear that something is changing in music altogether. Simpson is not your average artist, much less your average country artist. From his very first album, Hightop Mountain and especially his second, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Simpson stayed far away from the sanitized hayseed “bro-country” of hardly believable pickup trucks, dirt roads, and fishin’ that Nashville pop country radio has shoved down the throats of listeners for years...

He’s genial, folksy, and matter-of-fact in laying out his views. But talk to him for long enough, and time and again the Patriot Movement leader returns to what really drives him: land.

Rice is running for Josephine county commissioner in south-west Oregon, and believes that the federal government’s current role in land management is illegitimate and even tyrannical.

'Justice For Jack' Woman Angrily Cross-Examines Sheriff, He Turns Into A Sheepish Sniveling 3rd Grader

The characterization of this exchange is mine alone, but I couldn't resist but post this clip from the local Adams County Idaho Council meeting. Jack Yantis is the 62-year-old rancher killed by Adams County, Idaho deputies last November 1. 'Justice for Jack Yantis' advocates attended a council meeting earlier this week, and one woman read a prepared statement. But what occurred after that is even better. Adams county Sheriff Ryan Zollman was present at the meeting, and afterwards, she had a chance to question him in an impromptu, spontaneous exchange. She asks tough questions about the recently leaked police memo which stated that Deputy Brian Wood was increasingly unstable, had explosives, and threatened "if cops are involved shots will be fired."

NYT Endorses US-Sponsored Coup Attempt in Venezuela

The Times is a longstanding mouthpiece for wealth, power and privilege. Its record is deplorable - pro-business, anti-populist, endorsing all US wars of aggression, color revolutions and coups by other means against sovereign independent states.

It denigrated Hugo Chavez throughout his tenure, calling him “a would-be dictator…a populist demagogue…an authoritarian caudillo (strongman),” among other pejoratives.

It bashes President Nicolas Maduro the same way. Its history shows a consistent record of supporting despotic regimes like Saudi Arabia, other repressive Gulf States, Egypt, Turkey and Israel among others, while opposing sovereign independent democratic governments Washington doesn’t control.

Majority US supported Venezuelan National Assembly fascists openly call for ousting democratically elected President Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The support of coups on governments not to the US Governments liking are, unfortunately, as American as apple pie.

Unfortunately, however, some really bad planning on the part of Maduro's government goes right to the heart of the problem. As reported yesterday at bloomberg.com:

Making sense of the rolling political and economic disaster in Venezuela isn't easy. But the bigger mystery may be why the whole country isn't flooding into the streets to demand the end of the social revolution that's left one of Latin America's most resource-rich nations in a shambles. Start with the riddle of why the country with the world's largest crude oil reserves has suffered constant power outages. (Spoiler: instead of using oil to generate electricity, the government has relied on hydropower while failing to plan for this year's punishing drought; it neglected to build new power plants or invest in its crumbling infrastructure.) And how has President Nicolas Maduro responded to the energy crisis? He cut the work week for public servants to two days. Along with the furlough, Maduro -- who also is presiding over the world's worst recession -- ordered a 30 percent hike in the national minimum wage. Just how much the crowd-pleasing bonus will matter in a country with high triple-digit inflation, where consumers queueing for hours can't find eight out of 10 staple goods at grocery stores, is debatable. Not to mention that Venezuela is literally running out of bank notes. Venezuela's Revolution The fact is, the Maduro government may have lost its way, but it's still got an iron grip on this nation of 30 million people. And that residual clout, coupled with disarray among the president's political foes, has given the regime the benefit of public doubt even in desperate times.

Man Cusses Out Swat Team for Waking Him Up

For most people, finding a SWAT team on the front porch is a nightmarish scenario that’s more likely to produce swift compliance, rather than resistance. But last week a man from Odessa Texas (who wishes to remain anonymous) was rudely awakened by that very situation, and he did what most people only wish they had the guts to do.

The SWAT team in question was conducting a raid next to the man’s house, and for reasons that haven’t been explained, decided to enter his home instead without a warrant. The man was so incensed by how they behaved, that he recorded this very NSFW interaction with the police officers as he kicked them off his property.

A Dire Future — Paul Craig Roberts

The question is: will enough insouciant Americans align with the One Percent, the neocons, the men-hating feminists, homosexuals, the transgendered, and other “preferred minorities” to put the US presidency in the hands of an aggressive, corrupt person with a conscience deficit? That is the goal toward which the presstitutes are driving the brainwashed.

If we end up with Killary, neither the US nor the world will survive the mistake. She will be the last American president.

Killary is compromised with secret agendas, and secret agendas lead to conflict and war. With a crazed President Killary who declared Russian Presient Vladimir Putin, the world’s leading peacemaker, to be “the new Hitler,” with crazed American generals who declare Russia to be “an existential threat to the United States,” and with the insane neoconservatives back in the saddle determined to impose American hegemony on the rest of the world, Killary’s election will terminate life on earth.

Editing Reality: Former Employees Admit Facebook Censors Conservative News

Now it's officially admitted.

We know Twitter works the same way and so does Google’s “breaking” and “trending” news. We can tell ourselves that people will go elsewhere to read and vet news, but come on. We live in a world where the average human attention span is now smaller than that of a goldfish.

To act like the Internet isn’t powerful enough to influence reality, including protests, politics and even the outcome of elections, is just wishful thinking.

US REPUBLICANS FEAR THE DONALD

It’s been a treat watching the arrogant, Masters of the Universe Republicans wring their hands and ululate over the terror that is Donald Trump.

Most of my serious Republican friends don’t know what to do: they yearn to be close to power, but fear backing Trump will make them pariahs at their local golf club. So they are still hiding in the closet.

‘I am Shiva, destroyer of worlds!’ That’s Trump’s message to America’s oligarchs. And scared they should be because of even a modest Trump revolution would threatens their corrupt, stultified political system and their wallets.

As a former conservative Republican who has watched his lifelong party become a vehicle for special interests and religious fundamentalists, I say ‘blow it to smithereens.’ Build a new party that represents America’s 99%, not the gilded 1%.

How Rhode Island Parents Are Winning Back Their Rights to Vaccine Choice

By Missy Fluegge

Families in Rhode Island are winning the war against mandatory vaccination. They have joined together with two powerful advocacy organizations whose efforts have successfully aided the of introduction five legislative bills to their state government related to vaccine choice. Their diligence offers a strong example to other parents who also question the implications of mandating so many vaccines.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18. Different kinds of exemptions, including religious exemptions, medical exemptions, or philosophical exemptions, are available in all fifty states, but some state governments have recently increased their efforts to limit vaccine exemptions and make additional vaccines “mandatory” for school attendance...

Dangers From Hating Government

The determination beyond reasonable doubt of the presidential nominees of each of the two major political parties has invited much analysis of what a Clinton-vs.-Trump contest means in terms of larger political fault lines.

But the contest also is part of a larger pattern not only in terms of issue preferences that these two candidates represent but also in terms of the qualities that these individuals would bring to the presidency.

State Of Idaho Was Googling Deputy "Brian Wood Facebook Post" On January 23, Day After Secret Cop Memo

The day after the Ada County, Idaho Sheriff issued a 'LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE' internal document known as an "ATL" - attempt to locate - Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who killed Jack Yantis, the State of Idaho was scouring the internet for "Increasingly unstable" Brian Wood's posts. According to the police memo, Brian, who had "recently reported Domestic Violence issues in the Home," had told Adams County that "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." He was also seen "collecting guns" on his sister-in-laws property and "claims to have access to explosives." So the state of Idaho was concerned enough to look into this, but Sheriff Ryan Zollman didn't see fit to inform the people. Zollman failed to warn the community, or the Yantis family, or any of the 'Justice for Jack' supporters. Take this for what it's worth. I think it reveals a twisted mindset. The day after ominous ATL (for cops eyes only, of course), Idaho wanted to know all about the maniac's facebook posts..

80 Countries Just Slammed the US Over Habit of Bombing Hospitals

By Claire Bernish

Saudi Arabia, the United States, and their allies have developed a nasty habit of “epidemic” proportions in various military theaters, particularly around the Middle East — bombing hospitals, healthcare facilities, and, in at least one instance, an ambulance. But despite countless pleas from humanitarian organization Médicins Sans Frontières (MSF, Doctors Without Borders), that bombing continues, so the United Nations was finally forced to issue its own resolution on the matter.

Resolution 2286, co-sponsored by 80 member nations, condemns attacks on medical personnel and facilities in conflict situations and demands “an end to impunity for those responsible and respect for international law on the part of all warring parties.”

Though it might seem superficially absurd to issue a condemnation for something so patently fundamental, evidence of its necessity remains unfortunately prevalent in headlines...

The demarcation and protection of the lands will now prevent the Munduruku’s land from being flooded.

'Fringe' Website LibertyFight.com Breaks Truth Wide Open In Leak of Secret Internal Police Memo, Sheriff's Dept. 'Frustrated'

The establishment corporate media were forced to cover the release of a secret leaked police memo yesterday, after the LibertyFight.com expose on the matter went super-viral worldwide. The article was first linked to Mike Rivero's top-rated independent news website WhatReallyHappened.com Friday morning. In response, Sheriff Ryan Zollman claimed that the memo was "old news," after hiding it from the public for nearly four months. In reality the 'Officer Safety' Notice, issued by the Ada County, Idaho Crime Analysis Unit last January, was not 'old news' to the public at all. On the contrary, it was brand new news, because no one ever told the public about it. Channel 7 TV news in Idaho ran a breaking 6PM news story on it last night. According to channel 7, the Ada County sheriff's Dept. was "frustrated" over the leak of the confidential memo, which police officers are supposedly forbidden to release.

"DEFENCE INDUSTRY POISED FOR BILLION DOLLAR PROFITS FROM GLOBAL RIOT ‘CONTAGION’

The next five years will see the international market for ‘riot control systems’ boom to a value of more than $5 billion at an annual growth rate of 5%, according to a new report by a global business intelligence firm.

The report forecasts a dramatic rise in civil unrest across the world, including in North America and Europe, driven by an increase in Ferguson-style incidents and “extremist attacks.”

The Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific regions will also experience a persistent rise in conflicts.

This increasing trend in instability promises billions of dollars of profits for global defence firms, concludes the report, published last month by Infiniti Research Ltd., a market intelligence firm whose clients include Fortune 500 companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is any possibility for you of getting out of a hyper-urban environment into an area of relative quiet, rural and not easily accessible, demanding a lot of self-reliance, now is the time to discuss it with your family, and make that transition.

The 1% will have absolutely no patience with the coming frustrations of what they consider "the great unwashed" (translation: anyone who is not filthy rich), and consequently, Federal and state governments will order police departments to put down any kind of demonstrations with extreme prejudice.

That means killing not only those leading any demonstrations, but also innocent women and children, the medically fragile, and the elderly.

Think the film "V for Vendetta", but with the tragic ending of the government successfully suppressing all of its citizens, and you have a little taste of what, unfortunately, is probably going to come to the US and much of the rest of the world.

They Do Not Own Us As Property

In recent years, Americans have been burdened with historic expansions in government control, with a proliferation of fees, regulations, czars and bureaucracies, along with profligate spending that guarantees higher future taxes. Such dictates violate Americans’ inalienable self-ownership.

That is why Lysander Spooner, born January 19, deserves renewed attention. Spooner laid out why our natural right of self-ownership, combined with its implied right to enter voluntary arrangements, made government coercion of peaceful people illegitimate. Since we are rapidly accelerating away from that moral standard, we need to rediscover Spooner’s vision. In particular, his 1870 No Treason illuminates our current situation:

Here’s the full statement from Josh Ellis, a spokesman for the governor:

“The governor apologizes for using the wrong number. It’s too bad Bruce Springsteen actually canceled on nearly 15,000 people at the last minute. Regardless, the governor is still keeping his Springsteen albums despite their political disagreements.”

All Hell Breaks Loose In Jack Yantis Case: Idaho Law Enforcement Issues *USE EXTREME CAUTION* Statewide Alert For Deputy Who Killed Jack Yantis

According To The Law Enforcement Alert, Deputy Brian Wood Has Access To Explosives, Was Involved in Domestic Violence, 'Has Become Increasingly Unstable,' Is Separated from wife, and Has Frightened His In-Laws, who have requested increased police patrol of their home. Wood told Adams County Sheriff Office Adams "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." No one in local or state law enforcement notified the Yantis family of this danger. Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman, who has known about this alert since January 22, continues to defend Wood and said just last week that he would rehire Wood if he is cleared of charges in the killing of 62-year-old Jack. Zollman faces a challenger, retired lawman Tom Watts, in the election for sheriff this November.

Remember That "Taxation Without Representation" Thing? It's Happening Again

Everybody remembers learning about one of the central rallying cries of the American Revolution: “No taxation without representation!” Yes, the settlers in early America thought the idea of being forced to pay taxes without having a say in the decision-making of their overlords was very problematic.

In particular, the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back was a small tax on tea imports on the colonies, who did not have representation in the British parliament; this led to the infamous Boston Tea Party. Seems pretty minuscule compared to today’s 74,608-page tax code, right? Fortunately for modern-day Americans, the founding fathers fixed that problem after they kicked the crown to the curb… except they didn’t.

Oops.

What I’m telling you is that taxation without representation persists today, and that it’s even worse now than when it sparked a revolution.

Syria Redux: U.S. Government supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Enfield Rifles, military planes & tanks to Slaughter tens of thousands of Mexican Freedom Fighters

Everyone knows that the U.S, Israel & their allies fund, arm, protect, and created ISIS, who kills untold numbers of Christians and others. The U.S. government has been doing this for centuries. This is a classic article about the 'Cristero War' in Mexico, which took place in the 1920s and 1930s. Even Former Mexican President Vicente Fox admits that the freemasonic-led government in Mexico had outlawed Catholicism, and the rebel groups of freedom fighters, called the Cristeros, took up arms against their corrupt government. Their battle cry was Viva Cristo Rey!", which means "Long Live Christ the King." U.S. President Hoover aided the Mexican military, providing 10 MILLION ROUNDS of ammo, 10,000 Enfield Rifles, military planes & tanks to slaughter the freedom fighters. This is in Congressional records and covered extensively by the NY Times.

Republican Georgia Governor Vetoes Campus Concealed Carry Bill - Full Text of His Twisted Logic

GOP Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia, a former U.S. Congressman, today vetoed HB 589, a bill that would have allowed college students to carry concealed weapons on campus. The liberal republican began by quoting the second amendment but added his own twist, opining "It would be incorrect to conclude, however, that certain restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms are unconstitutional." After a rambling 14-paragraph screed, the traitor concluded "From the early days of our nation and state, colleges have been treated as sanctuaries of learning where firearms have not been allowed. To depart from such time-honored protections should require overwhelming justification."
