Facial recognition: coming to a town near you

Mass surveillance tools such as face recognition are often sold to the citizens under the guise of ‘protection’. Usually the ‘protection’ is from terrorists that somehow are never caught before the act, yet allowed to rampage our streets and create chaos for the benefit of The Government’s private agenda: more mass surveillance and the steady diminishing of our personal rights.

The Land of the Free-ish

My American friends always like to boast that America is ‘the land of the free’ and ‘the land of opportunity’. I get that. We all love our own homelands. But when it comes to America, how free are you exactly?
For instance, you have no privacy when it comes to travelling. Everywhere you go and everything you do is logged and recorded and sent to the Department of Homeland Security to further classify and analyse your movements and your habits.For instance, you have no privacy when it comes to travelling.

The Curious Case of the Awan Brothers

The case of the Awan brothers is a curious one indeed. They all performed IT or IT-related services for the members of the House of Representative; while Hilna Alvi was employed as a staffer. None of these individuals ever had background checks done on them.

Brother Paddock

Mr. Paddock was arrested and the charges brought forward. According to the legal complaint, Bruce faced 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and 1 count of possession of child pornography. 

Bruce appeared to have had some 236 CDs with thousands of images of children, some of them under the age of 12, plus some 600 images in his pc. According to one source*:

Nathan Larson: congressional candidate and pedophile

A man by the name of Nathan Larson, from Charlottesville, is running for public office in the US State of Virginia. This would be a totally unremarkable affair, if it wasn’t for some of his very murky past.
Mr. Larson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a 16 month (or 14, depending on sources) jail sentence due to a and act of ‘civil disobedience’, as reported by the vast majority of newspapers. This particular act of ‘civil disobedience’ was, in fact, a death threat sent in the form of a letter to the White House.

Survival of the Richest: All Are Equal, Except Those Who Aren’t

Like a gilded coating that makes the dullest things glitter, today’s thin veneer of political populism covers a grotesque underbelly of growing inequality that’s hiding in plain sight. And this phenomenon of ever more concentrated wealth and power has both Newtonian and Darwinian components to it.

In terms of Newton’s first law of motion: those in power will remain in power unless acted upon by an external force. Those who are wealthy will only gain in wealth as long as nothing deflects them from their present course. As for Darwin, in the world of financial evolution, those with wealth or power will do what’s in their best interest to protect that wealth, even if it’s in no one else’s interest at all.

Qanon: the Qult and the legend – Part 6

A lot has been said about ‘the 4am talking points’, and how Qanon super-secret-Intel were able to find the information before it became news. On the one hand, we have the explanation given by UnirockTV’s pastebin. The pastebin was a copy of an email UnirockTV says he received from one of the alleged ‘Qanon bakers’. In said email, the baker explains how easy it was for skilled computer people to simply hack into the ‘cloud news’ where most of the pre-packaged news were going to be served as talking points the following morning to the general public.

Qanon: the Qult and the legend – Part 2

This is akin to Pavlov’s experimenting with dogs and conditioning their behavior. Humans, it transpires, are easily malleable and can also be conditioned under very similar circumstances. We are, after all, also animals. Political animals, perhaps, but animals, nonetheless. And so Qanon played on this repetition for the full effect of its conditioning:

The Justice of Q: is John McCain really dead?

People on both sides of the political spectrum have very different perceptions of the life of Mr McCain. There are those who are rejoicing at his death, and while is not my place to question their reasons, it is my place to question their relentless attacks to his surviving family members. Is a son responsible for the deeds of his father? I see too much hatred. Too much of a mob mentality. A herd on either side that is easily swayed and divided by the newspapers and underground movements

Reflecting over McAuliffe’s conflicts of interests

For a man of such education and reputation, it is interesting to note that McAuliffe does have a lot of conflict of interest when it comes to his political and

business life. In fact, if one does look just close enough, it appears both go hand-in-hand and one couldn’t exist without the other.

One of McAuliffe’s initial forays into conflicts of interests comes from Federal City National Bank, a bank he helped to co-found in 1985. By 1988, the bank’s board elected McAuliffe as chairman, making him the youngest chairman in the United States Federal Reserve Bank’s charter association. The bank later merged with Credit International Bank, and he became Vice-Chairman there.
