Censorship is what happens when powerful people get scared

“Only the weak hit the fly with a hammer.” – Bangambiki Habyarimana

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign.  It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Let’s not whitewash history though. These tech companies have been compliant, out of control government snitches for a long time. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we’re aware of the deep and longstanding cooperation between these lackeys and U.S. intelligence agencies in the realm of mass surveillance. As such, the most recent transformation of these companies into full-fledged information gatekeepers should be seen in its proper context; merely as a dangerous continuation and expansion of an already entrenched reality.

But it’s all out in the open now. Facebook isn’t even hiding the fact that it’s outsourcing much of its “fake news” analysis to the Atlantic Council, a think tank funded by NATO, Gulf States and defense contractors. As reported by Reuters:

Facebook began looking for outside help amid criticism for failing to rein in Russian propaganda ahead of the 2016 presidential elections…

With scores of its own cybersecurity professionals and $40 billion in annual revenue in 2017, Facebook might not seem in need of outside help.

It doesn’t need outside help, it needs political cover, which is the real driver behind this.

Wealthy die-hards are having their brains frozen in hopes of coming back to life in future

For eons, the global elite has been able to afford almost anything they ever wanted but now that technology has come so far advanced a new door has opened in which the ultra-wealthy are now having their brains frozen in order to come back to life at a date hundreds of years into the future.

From Michael Snyder via End of the American Dream:

If you could live forever, would you do it? Throughout history, money has allowed the elite to buy just about anything they want – except an escape from death. Many super-rich individuals are deeply haunted by the knowledge that they have spent their lives working incredibly hard to accumulate vast amounts of wealth but they only have a very limited amount of time in which to enjoy it. As a result, many of them are absolutely obsessed with finding a way to cheat death. The quest for eternal life is very much alive today – especially in tech hotbeds such as Silicon Valley. As technology continues to increase at an exponential rate, many among the elite are absolutely convinced that eternal life will be possible someday, and they are determined to stick around long enough to be a part of that revolution.

One way that some ultra-wealthy people are attempting to extend their lifespans into the future is through the emerging science of cryogenics. Some are having their entire bodies frozen, and others are having just their brains frozen, but it is very expensive

The super-rich are having their brains frozen for £80,000 ($100,000) in the hope of being re-born in as little as 200 years time.

Cryogenics, which involves deep freezing the body to -196°C (-321°F), is increasingly being seen as a way to beat death.

There are several companies that currently perform this kind of “service” around the world right now. In total, several hundred people have already been frozen, and a few thousand more have signed up and are waiting to die.

And even though nobody has ever been successfully “brought back”, there is a very fervent belief that someday in the future it will be possible to return to the land of the living and “experience a whole new life”

One businessman believes he will wake up in the future and ‘experience a whole new life’ after having his head placed on the body of another human being.

The British-born man, who wanted to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the topic, says he ‘can’t think of anything more exciting’.

One of the largest cryogenics companies is “the Alcor Life Extension Foundation” in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is already storing 149 dead bodies, and it has more than 1,000 “paying members” overall.

Once death is near, technicians from Alcor need to be close at hand in order to start the freezing process

Only when death has been legally declared can technicians start packing the body in ice while attaching a “heart-lung resuscitator” to get the blood circulating.

They then administer 16 different medications meant to protect the cells from crystallising.

Currently there are 149 dead “patients” at Alcor’s facility, including US baseball legend Ted Williams and the youngest person to ever be cryopreserved, Matheryn Naovaratpong, aged two, from Thailand.

Of course, this technology will never be available to everyone because it is extremely expensive.

The world has become a strange place.

No one is coming to save us

If you’re waiting for someone to save you from the tidal wave of corporate censorship, government authoritarianism and deranged left-wing violence, you’re following a mirage. No one is coming to save you. If you want to live as a free person in a free world, you’re going to have to demand it, fight for it and secure it.

Tech giants, for example, absolutely will not stop their censorship unless they are forced to stop.

Tyrannical government will never shrink its own size and power unless it is forced to shrink.

There are no saviors running for office.

There are no angels running tech companies.

And God is not going to intervene and stop evil people from destroying our world.

No one is coming to save us.

We’re going to have to fight this (metaphorical) battle ourselves. It’s time we all owned up to this reality and started taking action to protect our basic human rights in the face of unrestrained tyranny. Destroying the tech giants’ censorship stranglehold on humanity is now a matter of self-defense.

Strzok fired by FBI but still works for the CIA

FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was fired by the bureau on Monday over a series of controversial text messages in which Peter Strzok and his former lover Lisa Page exchanged during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

However, what the press failed to report is the fact that Strzok was an agent for both the FBI and CIA at the same time.

That’s right, not only was Strzok employed by the FBI until his abrupt and meaningless termination from the bureau on Monday, Strzok has been sheep-dipped by the CIA where he currently remains employed to this day. (i.e. Strzok’s termination from the FBI on Monday was nothing more than a dog and pony show as Strzok remains an integral member of the deep state)

As I originally reported in mid-July, a sheep-dipped Peter Strzok worked for both the FBI and CIA at the time.

Both the FBI and CIA have played the American people for fools by not disclosing the fact that Peter Strzok is a double agent of the U.S. government and has been sheep-dipped by the CIA.

A sheep-dipped Peter Strzok has been covertly operating as the Section Chief of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Counterespionage Group during his secret 24 year tenure with the agency while masquerading as Deputy Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Counterintelligence Division where he was in charge of investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server along with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.

The bombshell information published first on BrassBalls.blog reveals that the “joint CIA/FBI position was created by Congress in 1996” which allowed Strzok to hold both posts.

An unclassified document printed on FBI letterhead dated January 20, 2016, which contains the subject line “Supplemental Classification Review and Determination” was addressed to the Bureau of National Security’s Assistant Secretary Gregory B. Starr from Peter Strzok who is listed as “Section Chief” of the “Counterespionage Section” in reference to Strzok’s CIA post. Keep in mind, this is not an FBI post as Strzok’s position at the FBI is “Deputy Assistant Director Counterintelligence Division” not “Section Chief” which is a CIA post.

FBI and State Letters Clinton Top Secret Emails by Jason Leopold on Scribd

November 18, 1996, Joint CIA-FBI Press Release on Arrest of Harold James Nicholson reveals “an unprecedented level of cooperation between the CIA and the FBI.”

According to the press release:

The CIA and FBI have implemented a number of reforms and new procedures at the CIA that are designed to detect the slightest of early warning signs of espionage. As a direct result of these reforms, anomalies were detected that ultimately led to the identification of Nicholson and his alleged espionage activities. These reforms include:

  • The Chief of CIA’s Counterespionage Group is a senior FBI official who has full access to CIA’s most sensitive counterintelligence data and is thus in a position to fully coordinate the joint efforts of both organizations.
  • The Chief of CIA’s Counterespionage Group is assisted by deputies from both the security and operational disciplines at CIA and has at least one FBI Special Agent on the Counterespionage Group staff full-time.
  • Section 811 of the Fiscal Year 1995 Intelligence Authorization Act requires immediate notification to the FBI whenever there are indications that classified information may have been disclosed without authorization to a foreign power.
  • The position of Associate Deputy Director of Operations/Counterintelligence was created to ensure high-level focus on the Agency’s counterintelligence and counterespionage effort. The Associate Deputy Director of Operations/Counterintelligence’s duties include full-time coordination with the FBI, currently including weekly meetings with senior FBI officials in the FBI’s National Security Division.
  • New training initiatives to enhance and improve counterespionge efforts have been undertaken.
  • Congress has provided increased resources for joint counterespionage efforts. 

The new revelations explain Strzok’s recent performance in front of the Special Counsel last week in which the sheep-dipped agent mocked the American people by smirking and acting a fool.

‘Wacky Omarosa fired for the last time, never made it never will,’ Trump tweets

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to ensure that no one believes former White House aide Omarosa’s baseless claim that the POTUS is a racist as it appears that Omarosa is on a mission to tarnish Trump’s outstanding reputation ahead of the midterms.

The president issued the following 3-part Tweet on Monday (1 of 3): “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard….”

Tweet 2 of 3: “…really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired!”

Tweet 3 of 3: “While I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!”
