A partnership between police departments and social media sites discussed at a law enforcement convention in Philadelphia this week could allow law enforcement to keep anything deemed criminal off the Internet—and even stop people from organizing protests.

Former federal prosecutor-turned-Facebook security chief Joe Sullivan was scheduled to speak during the conference at a panel entitled “Helping Law Enforcement Respond to Mass Gatherings Spurred by Social Media,” and suggested that agencies could be partnering with tech companies to keep users of certain services for communicating and planning protests and other types of demonstrations.

Kenneth Lipp, an independent journalist who attended the lecture quoted from the head of the social media group for the International Association of Chiefs of Police “95.9 percent of law enforcement agencies use social media, 86.1 percent for investigative purposes”.

Genetically Modifying Humans Via Antibiotics? Something You Need To Know

new kind of antibiotic has been developed by researchers at Oregon State University. The new antibiotics are called PPMOs, which stand for peptide-conjugated phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomers. They are “a synthetic analog of DNA or RNA that has the ability to silence the expression of specific genes.” (1) The way that PPMO antibiotics will work is to, “specifically target the underlying genes of a bacterium.” In plain English, PPMOs will genetically modify bacteria.

This may not sound like a horrible thing on initial glance. Bacteria are generally thought of as evil (soap commercials have conditioned us all), something to fight because some bacteria can make people sick and even kill them if their body is overwhelmed by “bad” bacteria. However, bacteria and the other single-celled organisms that make up the human microbiome are intimate parts of each human being.

The bacteria that compose our microbiome work so synergistically with our human cells that the difference between “us” and “the bacteria” is difficult to decipher. Where do “we” begin and “they” end? If all of the bacteria in a person’s microbiome were killed off, that person would die. Bacteria are an intimate and important part of “us.” In genetically modifying “them,” are we genetically modifying “us?”
There are thousands of medical and ethical questions that should be asked about the development of drugs that genetically modify bacteria.

Lawless Drone Killings

Two UN reports highlight the problem. More on them below.

Sixteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai is an activist for women’s education, a blogger, and Sakharov Prize winner. She’s a Pakistan National Youth Peace Prize recipient.

She was a 2013 Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Desmond Tutu nominated her for the International Children’s Peace Prize. On October 16, Canada said it plans to grant her honorary citizenship.

Obama invited her to the White House. Perhaps he wishes he hadn’t. She took full advantage. She didn’t hold back. “(D)rone attacks are fueling terrorism” she said.

Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people.

Predator drones sanitize killing on the cheap. Remote warrior teams operate computer keyboards and multiple monitors.

They murder by remote control. They target faceless victims. They kill indiscriminately. They do so unaccountably.

Drones are instruments of state terror. Studies show mostly innocent civilians are killed. They were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

China Calls For New Reserve Currency And New World Order

goldOctober 14th, 2013

By Tyler Durden – Delivered by The Daily Sheeple

We assume it is a coincidence that on the day in which wedemonstrate China’s relentless appetitefor gold, driven by what we and many others believe is the country’s desire to have a call option on a gold-backed reserve currency when the time comes, just posted in China’s official press agency, Xinhua, is an op-ed by writer Liu Chang in which he decries the “US fiscal failurewhich warrants a de-Americanized world” and flatly states that the world should consider a new reserve currency “that is to be created to replace the dominant U.S. dollar, so that the international community could permanently stay away from the spillover of the intensifying domestic political turmoil in the United States.”

Of course, if China were serious, and if the world were to voluntarily engage in such a (r)evolutionary reserve currency transition, then all Magic Money Tree theories that the only thing better than near infinite debt is beyond infinite debt, would promptly be relegated to the historic dust heap of idiotic theories where they belong.

Some of China’s (which as a reminder is the single largest offshore holder of US Treasury paper, and the second largest of all only second naturally to the Federal Reserve whose $85 billion in monthly monetizing “flow” is what is keeping rates from exploding higher) thoughts as captured in the Xinhua Op-ed:

  • Reform of the world’s financial system should include the introduction of a new internatonal reserve currency to replace the U.S. dollar
  • The international community could thus permanently stay away from the spillover of intensifying domestic political turmoil in the U.S.
  • Fiscal impasse in the U.S. is a good time for “befuddled world” tostart considering building a “de-Americanized world”
  • Impasse has leftmany nations’ dollar assets in jeopardy and the international community agonized
  • Other cornerstones should belaid to underpin a de-Americanized world, including respect for sovereignty, recognizing authority of UN in handling global hotspot issues and giving developing and emerging market economies more say in major international financial institutions
  • Purpose of such changes is not to “completely toss the United States aside,” rather to encourage Washington to play a much more constructive role in addressing global affairs

Of course, if and when the day comes that the USD is no longer the reserve currency, kiss America’s superpower, or any power, status, which is now based purely on the USD’s reserve currency status, and the ability to fund half the US budget deficit with debt promptly monetized by the Fed, goodbye.

Americans warned bank ‘bail-ins’ coming

October 4, 2013

bank-feesWEB Notes: A “bail-in” is the theft of the money you placed in the banks account. Once you did that the money became theirs. If this is news to you, we highly encourage you to read, It Can Happen Here: The Confiscation Scheme Planned for US and UK Depositors. In addition, it is already happening around the globe, Cyprus-Style Wealth Confiscation Is Now Starting To Happen All Over The Globe.

Riot squadWith the United States facing a $17 trillion debt and an acidic debate in Washington over raising that debt limit on top of a potential government shutdown, Congress could mimic recent European action to let banks initiate a “bail-in” to blunt future failures, experts say.

Previously the federal government has taken taxes from consumers, or borrowed the money, to hand out to troubled banks. This could be a little different, and could allow banks to reach directly into consumers’ bank accounts for their cash.

Jail time for selling raw milk is greater than jail time for raping children

farmers-in-jailOctober 04, 2013

The American system of justice is indeed in major need of overhaul when, in one place, you can get a month in jail for raping a child, but in another, you can get several months in jail for daring to sell milk that wasn’t government approved.

Overthrowing A Tyrannical Government Is Not Deemed A ‘Legitimate’ Use Of Firearms

wake up & smellOctober 3, 2013

By Binaryloop

An important set of documents were crafted by the U.N.Coordinating Action on Small Arms(CASA). These include “modules”on gun control to serve as “model legislation” for countries that sign on to theArms Trade Treaty. The modules were developed by theWorking Group onInternational Small Arms Control Standard (ISACS) and are currently in draft form.

The most relevant one is:

ISACS 03.30 National controls over the access of civilians to small arms and light weapons.

The U.N. wants to control who has weapons, what type of weapons they have, and they want to create a list of “legitimate” activities that you can perform with firearms.

Throughout this entire set of documents they refer to everyone as “civilians”.

In the U.N.’s opinion, only the military and police are allowed to carry weapons legally.

The document lays out the list of goals for regulations. All of their goals scream ‘Totalitarian Regime’.Thomas Jefferson

The most OBVIOUS thing that you’ll notice is that: ‘overthrowing a tyrannical governmentis absent from the list. Apparently, that particular activity by civilians is not deemed to be ‘legitimate’ by the United Nations.

The Government Is Spying On Us

-nsa-memeSeptember 23, 2013 by WashingtonsBlog

The government is spying on everyone’s digital and old-fashioned communications.

They are even photographing the outside information on every piece of snail mail.

The government is spying on you through your phone and may even remotely turn on your camera and microphone when your phone is off.

The NSA has inserted its code into Android’s operating system, bugging three-quarters of the world’s smartphones. Google (or the NSA) can remotely turn on your phone’s camera and recorder at any time and know just about every WiFi password in the world.

But it’s not just the Android. In reality, the NSA can spy on just about everyone’s smart phone.

Cell towers track where your phone is at any moment, Your smartphone routinely sends your location information back to Apple or Google. It would be child’s play for the government to track your location that way. Your iPhone, or other brand of smartphone is spying on virtually everything you do. Remember, that might be happening even when your phone is turned off.

The government might be spying on you through your computer’s webcam or microphone. They might also be spying on you through the “smart meter” on your own home.

The FBI wants a backdoor to all software but NSA has already built a backdoor into all Windows software before 1999 .

Microsoft has long worked hand-in-hand with the NSA and FBI so that encryption doesn’t block the government’s ability to spy on users of Skype, Outlook, Hotmail and other Microsoft services.

Microsoft informs intelligence agencies with information about bugs in its popular software before it publicly releases a fix, so that information can be used by the government to access computers.

“Black boxes” are currently installed in between 90% and 96% of all new cars. And starting in 2014, all new cars will include black boxes that can track your location.

License plate readers mounted on police cars allow police to gather millions of records on drivers including photos of them in their cars.

If you have a microphone in your car, that might also open you up to snoopers.

The CIA wants to spy on you through your dishwasher and other “smart” appliances. Smart appliances connected to the Internet could someday be used by the CIA to track individuals using geo-location data from your wired appliances.

The Department of Homeland Security claims they will soon be able to know your adrenaline level, what you ate for breakfast and what you’re thinking … from 164 feet away.
