Fight for Control Threatens to Destabilize and Fragment the Internet

You try to use your credit card, but it doesn’t work. In fact, no one’s credit card works. You try to go to some news sites to find out why, but you can’t access any of those, either. Neither can anyone else. Panic-buying ensues. People empty ATMs of cash.

This kind of catastrophic pan-internet meltdown is more likely than most people realize.

I direct the Internet Atlas Project at the University of California, Berkeley. Our goal is to shine a light on long-term risks to the internet. We produce indicators of weak points and bottlenecks that threaten the internet’s stability.

For example, where are points of fragility in the global connectivity of cables? Physical cables under the sea deliver 95% of the internet’s voice and data traffic. But some countries, like Tonga, connect to only one other country, making them vulnerable to cable-clipping attacks.

Another example is content delivery networks, which websites use to make their content readily available to large numbers of internet users. An outage at the content delivery network Fastly on June 8, 2021, briefly severed access to the websites of Amazon, CNN, PayPal, Reddit, Spotify, The New York Times, and the U.K. government.

The biggest risks to the global internet

We take measurements at various layers of the internet’s technological stack, from cables to content delivery networks. With those measurements, we identify weak points in the global internet. And from those weak points, we build theories that help us understand what parts of the internet are at risk of disruption, whom those disruptions will affect, and how severely, and predict what would make the internet more resilient.

Currently, the internet is facing twin dangers. On one side, there’s the threat of total consolidation. Power over the internet has been increasingly concentrated primarily in the hands of a few, U.S.-based organizations. On the other side, there’s fragmentation. Attempts to challenge the status quo, particularly by Russia and China, threaten to destabilize the internet globally.

While there’s no single best path for the internet, our indicators can help policymakers, nongovernmental organizations, businesses, activists, and others understand if their interventions are having their intended effect. For whom is the internet becoming more reliable, and for whom is it becoming more unstable? These are the critical questions. About 3.4 billion people are just now getting online in countries including Fiji, Tonga, and Vanuatu. What kind of internet will they inherit?

A US-controlled internet

Since at least 2015, the core services that power the internet have become increasingly centralized in the hands of U.S. corporations. We estimate that U.S. corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies could block a cumulative 96% of content on the global internet in some capacity.

The U.S. Department of Justice has long used court orders aimed at tech providers to block global access to content that’s illegal in the U.S., such as copyright infringements. But lately, the U.S. federal government has been leveraging its jurisdiction more aggressively. In June, the DOJ used a court order to briefly seize an Iranian news site because the department said it was spreading disinformation.

Due to interlocking dependencies on the web, such as content delivery networks, one misstep in applying this technique could take down a key piece of the internet infrastructure, making a widespread outage more likely.

Meanwhile, U.S.-based technology companies also risk wreaking havoc. Consider Australia’s recent spat with Facebook overpaying news outlets for their content. At one point, Facebook blocked all news on its platform in Australia. One consequence was that many people in Fiji, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, and Vanuatu temporarily lost a key news source because they rely on prepaid cellphone plans that feature discounted access to Facebook. As these skirmishes increase in frequency, countries worldwide are likely to suffer disruptions to their internet access.

A splinternet

Naturally, not everyone is happy with this U.S.-led internet. Russia throttles Twitter traffic. China blocks access to Google.

These domestic maneuvers certainly threaten localized meltdowns. India now regularly shuts down the internet regionally during civil unrest. But, in aggregate, they present a more global threat: internet fragmentation. A fragmented internet threatens speech, trade, and global cooperation in science.

It also increases the risk of cyberattacks on core internet infrastructure. In a global internet, attacks on infrastructure hurt everyone, but walled-off national internets would change that calculus. For example, Russia has the capacity to disconnect itself from the rest of the world’s internet while maintaining service domestically. With that capacity, it could attack core global internet infrastructure with less risk of upsetting its domestic population. A sophisticated attack against a U.S. company could trigger a large-scale internet outage.

The future of the internet

For much of its history, the internet has been imperfectly, but largely, open. Content could be accessed anywhere, across borders. Perhaps this openness is because, rather than in spite, of the U.S.‘s dominance over the internet.

Whether or not that theory holds, the U.S.’s dominance over the internet is unlikely to persist. The status quo faces challenges from the U.S.’s adversaries, its historical allies, and its own domestic tech companies. Absent action, the world will be left with some mixture of unchecked U.S. power and ad-hoc, decentralized skirmishes.

In this environment, building a stable and transnational internet for future generations is a challenge. It requires delicacy and precision. That’s where work like ours comes into play. To make the internet more stable globally, people need measurements to understand its chokepoints and vulnerabilities. Just as central banks watch measures of inflation and employment when they decide how to set rates, internet governance, too, should rely on indicators, however imperfect.

CEO’s GRILLED over Whistleblower Evidence of De-platforming Collusion Between Big Tech

By Ben Swann | Truth in Media
In the above video, Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri grills Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over reports of the “Tasks” Platform reportedly used by FB, Twitter and Google to coordinate censorship of people, ideas and hashtags

Editor’s note: As you have probably noticed, the communications giants, known as Facebook, Google, and Twitter have appeared before the United States Congress many times. They have had to face questions about their actions or inactions concerning various questions about content, freedom, censorship, et al. On November 17, 2020, they were answering more questions, including whether they collude with one another to determine which users, platforms and content should be limited or banned. The following video, by Ben Swann of Truth in Media, is very enlightening on this subject. Please let us know what you think of it in our comments section below. Thank you

Frontline Doctors on Censorship: We’re Coming After you Big Tech – We Will not be Silenced!

By Brian Shilhavy | Nexus Newsfeed

Less than 24 hours after the Frontline Doctors first press conference in Washington D.C. was censored and removed from Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, and after having their own website knocked offline in an attempt to silence them, the doctors were back in front of the steps of the Supreme Court building for their second press conference, at great risk to their lives, their families, and their jobs, as they remained determined to bring the truth directly to the American people that a cure for COVID exists, and that the public does not need to cower in fear anymore.

While the corporate media continues to blacklist the group of doctors and refuses to cover their press conferences, some hecklers showed up to try and drown out the speakers.

The fact that these doctors are seeing a 100% cure rate for COVID patients is a message Big Pharma, Big Tech, and their political leaders do not want the public to hear. Because it would mean that their drugs and their coming vaccines are worthless and unnecessary.

They do not want healthy Americans. They want sick Americans cowering in fear so they can control us for their own purposes.

Dr. Simone Gold was the first doctor to speak today, and she said:

We are finally coming forward, at great personal and professional costs to ourselves.

We’re tired of seeing patients die in front of us, and we’re even more upset to see the spider web of fear that is enveloping the American public.

When there’s a treatment, there’s a cure. People have been afraid to say that.

But what else do you call it if you give somebody the medication early, and it aborts the disease process?

We’re coming after you Big Tech. We’re coming after you.

We won’t be silenced. The First Amendment is first for a reason. There’s thousands of us.

Dr. Richard Erso was another doctor who spoke today:

We cannot let our patients die without treatment. And that’s the major thing that’s happened.

We’ve been told to hide in our houses, wear a mask, and wait for a vaccine.

That’s not a strategy. We have a strategy.

Hydroxychloroquine works. Withholding it from patients is shameful.

Watch the full press conference as filmed by Breitbart News (let us know if it disappears).

These People Need To Be Stopped Immediately And Held Accountable!

By Luke Rudkowski | We are Change

Editor’s Note: The more you know … Despite various censorship efforts, more and more information is coming out and people are questioning the COVID-19 pandemic’s response, narrative, and the actions of those in whom we have placed our trust. An increasing number of people are calling for legal consequences and solutions. Luke Rudkowski’s latest video makes his concerns clear. Among the important questions answered by Luke in the above video are:

Why did Andrew Cuomo send 4,300 COVID-19-positive elders back into New York nursing homes rather than to reportedly near-empty hospital facilities?

How did Bill Gates double his fortune during the last decade after pledging to give all his money away?

Did Bill Gates really state with glee that the return on investment, for 20 years of investment in vaccines, was 20 to 1, or as much as $20 billion dollars?

Are deaths by suicide higher than COVID-19 deaths?

Others calling for accountability are journalists Ben Swann and Mike Adams, Dr. Rashid Buttar, Dr. Judy Mikovits, and Attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Apple Kneels Before China

By Jon Rappoport | No More Fake News

“You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won’t have it! Is that clear?!…You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variate, multi-national dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today! And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and You Will Atone!” (Network, the 1976 film masterpiece, screenplay by Paddy Chayefsky)

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” (Edward Bernays, the father of public relations, 1928)

Money, money, and more money.

This piece is a follow-on from my recent article about the NBA, China, and the tyranny of Globalism.

As an illustration of MONEY FIRST policy, here is a brief Deadspin.com quote:

“Fun fact: The company more or less responsible for the Opium wars and the annexation of Hong Kong still exists, still operates in China and is now a multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages hotels, convenience stores and shipping lines…”

The British company is Jardine (Jardine Matheson).

Bloomberg:

“’It [Jardine] is never far from the front of public memory in China today’…Indeed, up the river from Hong Kong on the mainland, portraits of William Jardine and James Matheson stare down from walls inside the Opium War Museum in the industrial city of Dongguan. Beneath them, a label reads: ‘Opium Smuggler.”

The point? Forget “public Chinese memory.” Just in case anyone thinks the Chinese regime still holds a MONEY grudge for the devastating 19th century Opium Wars, which the British, urged on by Jardine, leveled against China, in order to force them to accept ongoing shipments of opium, addicting millions of people—the “hated Jardine” is doing billion-dollar business with China today.

Principles first, until the cash arrives.

And also, currently: MSN.com:

“In a new letter co-penned by a bipartisan group of members of Congress, federal lawmakers say they have ‘strong concern’ related to Apple’s recent actions in China. The letter, which is addressed to CEO Tim Cook, zeroes in on Apple’s decision earlier this month to remove HKMap, an app pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong used to track the location of local law enforcement.”

“The letter goes on to criticize Apple for its other app removals. Citing data from an organization called GreatFire, it says, ‘Apple has censored at least 2,200 apps in China, which include Virtual Private Network apps used to circumvent China’s Great Firewall, and apps made by and for oppressed ethnic minorities, including the Uyghur and Tibetan communities’.”

Yes, the Apple leaders are really on the cutting edge of enlightenment, aren’t they? Superior consciousness. Grasp of global evolution. We’re all in this together. Unity. Citizens of the world. Heavens to Betsy, these spiritual masters aren’t just hawking cosmic bullshit about themselves. Certainly not.

“Yes, sir, we’ll cancel that app. Any other apps we can erase for you? Do you need any other favors? We love your 1.4 billion customers like first cousins. Do you need technical assistance for any purpose?”

Bow the head and bend the knee.

Big Tech savants and nerds across the board apparently still need a Daddy. They still need a pat on the head. There just aren’t enough Daddies in America. And they need a stern Daddy in a place like China. Generals in one army sometimes long to be privates in another army.

But no matter. The money makes the adrenaline flow.

Here are a few choice quotes from Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple:

“I don’t think that you’re born with gut [instinct], a gut matures and gets better and better over time, the struggle that most people have is learning to listen to it. Figuring out how to access it in some way. What I found is that even though I’m an engineer and an analytical person at heart the most important decisions I’ve made had nothing to do with any of that. They were always based on intuition.”

—Yes, for example, the gut instinct to just give in to the brutal Chinese regime. That was a personal revelation.

Julian Assange Tortured with Psychotropic Drug According To EX USAF Lieutenant Colonel

By Arjun Walia | Collective Evolution

In Brief

  • The Facts:Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski writes in an article posted at Lew Rockwell’s website that Julian Assange is receiving the same treatment as suspected terrorists while in captivity at “Her Majesty’s Prison Service” at Belmarsh.
  • Reflect On:Why has the mainstream media been silent regarding the treatment of Julian Assange? Why do they just slander him and not tell the truth about what’s really happening, and why he was taken?

JFK warned the citizenry about “an announced need for increased security” that would be “seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” Today, this is known as “national security,” and it’s a term used to justify unethical and enormous amounts of secrecy that do not protect the public, but protect those in power and their corporate, financial and political interests. Theodor Roosevelt said that, “JFK warned the citizenry about “an announced need for increased security” that would be “seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” Today, this is known as “national security,” and it’s a term used to justify unethical and enormous amounts of secrecy that do not protect the public, but protect those in power and their corporate, financial and political interests.”

This is exactly what Julian Assange did, and many others have and are doing, like independent alternative media outlets.

Transparency is what Julian Assange was all about, and the American empire, or more so the global empire, has been desperate to keep its secrets and prosecute anyone or anything that threatens their secrecy. That’s what this is all about. And they proved that with Chelsea Manning.

It’s not just people like Assange who are being demonized and hunted, it’s alternative media as well. The war on ‘fake news’ that’s been happening for the last little while has forced alternative media outlets that are presenting credible information to be deemed as ‘fake.’ Any media outlet who even questions a controversial issue has been made out to be ‘wrong’ or ‘fake.’ Who has been hired to do this work? One example is news browser extension NewsGuard, which promises to help readers pick out fake news. However, NewsGuard is funded and run by individuals tied to the CFR, Atlantic Council, and other prominent elite figures.

Below is a tweet from Australian journalist and BAFTA award-winning documentary filmmaker John Pilger, who made comments last month that shed some light on how Assange is being treated.

Assange Tortured with Psychotropic Drug?

I recently came across a post written a few months ago by Karen Kwiatkowski.

The FBI, Pentagon, and CIA are “interviewing” Assange. Kwiatkowski writes:

Interviewing is the wrong word.I’d like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome.Chemical Gina has her hands in this one, and we are being told that Assange is being “treated” with 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, known as BZ.

BZ is a powerful drug that produces hallucinations.

“Soldiers on BZ could remember only fragments of the experience afterward. As the drug wore off, and the subjects had trouble discerning what was real, many experienced anxiety, aggression, even terror,” the New Yorker reported. “…The drug’s effect lasted for days. At its peak, volunteers were totally cut off in their own minds, jolting from one fragmented existence to the next. They saw visions: Lilliputian baseball players competing on a tabletop diamond; animals or people or objects that materialized and vanished.”

She goes on:

It is difficult to know if the state is more sociopathic or more psychopathic.  What US government employees and/or contractors are currently doing to Julian Assange, and those who may have used Wikileaks as a journalistic avenue, may indicate it is the latter.  Torture, isolation, brutality, and the use of psychotropic drugs during interrogations and hiding this from the defendant’s own lawyers by denying them access — this is Lubyanka in the 1950s, not London and DC in 2019.

Allow me to get to the point.  The latest word I have received from England is as follows:

“[Julian Assange] is presently under close observation in prison hospital because he has suffered ‘severe transient psychotic episodes.’ My source(s) indicate these episodes occurred after two sessions of coercive interrogation at the hands of UK and US officials. The source(s) stated the HUMINT interrogators used psychotropic drugs in the course of the sessions.”

There are no words.  Nothing can be said.  2 plus 2 does equal 5.  The FBI is our own special Cheka.  The CIA Director’s hands are wet and her organization does not serve American values.  Rather than choosing to stay secretive for national security, the modern CIA must stay secretive in order to survive, because it has become functionally illegal.  Our president, who puts America first, is putting American values last, even as he tweets his concern for freedom of speech.

The agenda is to destroy Assange as a human being, and they may well succeed.  In doing this evil deed, in all of our names, America herself – whether we put her first, last, or somewhere in the middle – will have dug her own grave.

Why The August 29th Global ‘Targeted Individuals’ Rallies Deserve Our Attention

By Richard Enos | Collective-Evolution

In Brief

  • The Facts:’Targeted Individual’ activists are holding concurrent rallies in 21 different locations all over the world on August 29th, 2019. This will be the largest gathering of TIs and their supporters in the history of the movement.
  • Reflect On:Can we see how our intentional awareness of matters like the ‘Targeted Individuals’ phenomenon helps us all move towards creating the world that we all want?

Since I began writing about the ‘Targeted Individual’ phenomenon last year, I have received dozens of independent emails from people who identify themselves as Targeted Individuals, either thanking me for covering the issue or wanting to tell their stories, which consist of a whole range of invasive attacks from stalking and surveillance to EMF weapons torture. Not the largest sample size, to be sure, but certainly significant enough for me to think that we should take notice, especially since the reach of CE’s articles has been so drastically reduced of late. One or two among them, perhaps, are imagining some of the things happening to them, but there is no way to discredit this many people, especially when their stories have so many similarities.

And many of them express themselves very clearly and even eloquently about a problem that is among the most mysterious and baffling covert activities going on today. One of the people who contacted me is Thomas McFarlan, who is both a TI and an activist who has been writing about the Targeted Individuals phenomenon for years. His article “Targeted Individuals Plan Worldwide Protests in 21 Global Locations for ‘TI-Day’ 2019” not only provides information about the largest worldwide TI rallies ever, it also helps to give credence to the claims of those who feel they are being surveilled, stalked, and attacked by Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs).

Credibility Problem

For one to believe that ‘Targeted Individuals’ programs exist, one must first be able to make the leap above mainstream perception to the realization that some elements of government, intelligence, military, law enforcement, media, and even so-called human rights organizations are working together to perpetrate these experimental crimes. For this reason, activists like McFarlan have to first create the context within which these victims can be believed:

For individuals subjected to organized stalking crimes, TI-Day 2019 is an unique opportunity to work in concert with other victims around the world, to alert the public and honest lawmakers about these crimes, in a global demonstration that clearly shows these crimes are in fact occurring on an international scale. Although this demonstration of a global “concurrence of claim”, of organized stalking crimes, will of course be slandered by the powers-that-shouldn’t-be that operate these stalking campaigns, a demonstration of a “concurrence of claim” does have actual legal weight, no matter how much slander is thrown at the blatant reality of the evidence at hand.

The claims from bad actors within the media, human rights organizations, transnational organizations, and governments, that the people who report these crimes are delusional, fall flat on their face, when one simply reviews the hard evidence that proves these crimes are now occurring to millions of innocent people all around the world — evidence that includes very articulate accounts of these crimes from highly educated and professionally accomplished victims… Victims like Dr. Kauni Kilde: Surgeon General of the nation of Finland, Medical Doctor, and best selling Author; Cheryl Welsh: Lawyer, groundbreaking Activist, and Researcher; Ted Gunderson: Chief of the Los Angeles FBI office, 25+ year veteran of the FBI, and groundbreaking independent Researcher; Ramola D: Award winning Author, George Washington University Professor, and groundbreaking Journalist; Randy Quaid: Legendary Academy Award nominated Actor; Dr. Eric T. Karlstrom: California State University Stanislaus University Professor for 30 years, and groundbreaking Researcher; Geral W. Sosbee: Lawyer, FBI Agent, and Activist; Gloria Naylor: Legendary award winning and best-selling Author; Stephen Shellen: Hollywood Actor, Artist and independent Filmmaker.

The “concurrence of claim” is important because unlike most crime victims, who are believed by the public when they sustain assaults, invasions, or other criminal activities, it seems to be inherent in ‘Targeted Individual’ crimes that the victims are left to doubt themselves, and where there tends to be difficulty gathering compelling objective evidence of the crimes being perpetrated. Having people looking at you or following you in public, being made to feel your privacy is completely invaded, and being subjected to electromagnetic weapons which have various levels of mind-influencing power or infliction of physical pain, cannot help but lead to a state of suicidal hopelessness for all but the strongest-willed individuals.

In relation to all the other things we report on here at CE in terms of the activities of what we have called the shadow government, Deep State, Military-Industrial Complex or Global Elite, these types of experimental efforts to test out different mind-control, torture and crowd-control strategies against unsuspecting victims fits right in. These are the kinds of activities that would be conducted by powers that sought to create a global surveillance state, by instituting a political, economic and technological grid designed to secure the complete enslavement of humanity.

Why This Cause Needs Our Attention

McFarlan cites an official 2009 U.S. Department of Justice document release on stalking crimes in America which denoted that ‘13.1% of the 3,398,630 U.S. citizens that reported stalking crimes to the U.S. Department of Justice “Stalking Victimization Survey”, in the year 2006 alone, reported that they were stalked by a group of 3 or more people. So that amounts to well over 441,800 people who reported being subject to organized stalking, to the DOJ survey alone.’

David Wilcock Releases Important New Ebook About Attacks on Alternative Media

By Robert G. O’Leary

David Wilcock’s new release, entitled Declas: Social Media Nukes an Entire Generation … But Why is big – in terms of its number of pages and in terms of the breadth, depth and importance of its subject matter. It is a 258-page EBook which has just been made available online.

We are living through amazing times right now – full of great uncertainty and great promise. These are days of double-speak and double-crosses – liars spend a great deal of money hiding their mendacity by controlling and paying off social media organizations to demonetized and demonize truth-tellers. These paid-off social media organizations, such as Google, made part of their reputation as purported champions of net neutrality and free speech.

David Wilcock provides us with some insights into why social media giants are turning their backs on their customers (and in some cases even their profitability and long-term viability). He describes how organizations, like Google and Facebook, are controlled in part by some of the same people who co-own prisons, weapons manufacturers, and parts of the recording industry.

David discusses his own nightmarish experience with YouTube (a subsidiary of Google). He describes how other YouTubers would take his relatively small number of YouTube videos (30 or less in number) and “repackage” them with different names and recent dates and put them out as supposedly new videos. This was done without his permission and contrary to any copyright or other protections which he has over that content. He goes on to describe how YouTube proved to be a faceless, non-transparent, and unresponsive monolith – all despite hiring numerous lawyers to assist him.

Many of us have grown up on YouTube or have grown to like it as a replacement of sorts for the heyday of MTV and VH-1 –times when they aired music videos instead of endless (mostly sub-par shows). We fell in love with it, like the music stars that appeared on it. We found new musical acts on YouTube. We found obscure cuts from our favorite artists. We even found that we could listen to new releases of music, from our old favorites, on YouTube.

This channel was so cool, and helped us to cope with the irony of seeing classic rock stations refuse to play new music from the very musical acts that were indirectly paying their paychecks. For me, personally, Steve Perry released a great new album late last year, called Traces, after 24 years of silence in terms of any new recordings. He appeared on some of the TV interview shows and on some radio stations, but rock stations generally would not play his music. He was a big hit in places, like ITunes and on some of the charts, but in spite of (not because of) mainstream radio. And he was played by certain YouTubers. In fact, that is how I found out that he had released an album.

Yet YouTube has changed. The alternative media website, “We Are Change,” discussed this a couple of months ago, with its video, “Its OVER For Us and Independent Media HERE”:

Another video that discussed these developments was “The Golden Age of YouTube is Over”, on the website, www.theverge.com.

This new phenomenon at YouTube is monumental. Yet, many people may not really comprehend its magnitude. David Wilcock uses a “What if” scenario to help to bring it home for his readers. He asks us to imagine what would have happened if musical artists of the 1960’s and 1970’s had been suddenly de-funded, left to pay for their musical production, and development on their own.

Imagine a world in which John Lennon made a career of working in a local music store in Liverpool, Michael Jackson was a teacher in Detroit, and Pete Townshend ran a bookstore after his efforts at writing fiction and poetry never panned out.

Imagine they all did music on the weekend, and had fans regularly ask them, “Dude, why aren’t you famous, your music is amazing. To be sure, many talented musicians out there have had the talent to make it big, but never got the opportunity to do so, or blew any opportunity they were given.

The artists who did “make it,” have had tremendous impact upon our culture, inspired us, empowered us, brought us through depression, and even saved our lives. Some music has taught us to look at our world in a different way, and even to work to make it a better place to live.

Alternative media has made its own mark on our culture and is perhaps more homegrown and  unprocessed than even the music of the 60s and 70s, since we must keep in mind that only some artists were allowed through the gatekeepers of artist and repertoire for each of the music companies. David Wilcock shares insights about these subjects, and do much more, in this release. I urge you to check it out in its entirety, at the following link: Declas: Social Media Nukes an Entire Generation … But Why

David Wilcock also gives his take on why YouTube would be seemingly undermining its own interest by attacking some of its stars, and potentially losing out on its own revenues. His is a compelling explanation that suggests very nefarious and surreptitious actions are going on behind the scenes to support the status quo and the so-called Deep State’s interests.

Facebook Co-Founder Calls Out Zuckerberg & Says It’s Time To ‘Break-Up’ The Company

By Arjun Walia | Collective-Evolution

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes recently called out Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, stating that things have become out of control and that it’s time for the company to “break up.”
  • Reflect On:Was Facebook really invented to be a simple social media platform? Why do so many Ex high level US government employees work at Facebook? What is Facebooks real purpose and why are they censoring free speech?

It’s no secret that many people believe that Facebook has become a massive tool for censorship. Multiple social media platforms are now banning anything and everything that opposes certain political thoughts or corporate agendas, regardless of how credible it is and how much evidence there is to back up those claims. A lot of news that isn’t really false has simply been labelled as ‘fake news.’ It reminds me of what’s happening with vaccines today, for example, as the mainstream media (which never receives any type of censorship or “fake” labels) never seems to address the concerns and points that are made by multiple vaccine safety advocates, even when those concerns are expressed by scientists and doctors. Instead, mainstream media uses terms like ‘anti-vax conspiracy theorists’ and ‘fake news’ to make their point, while simultaneously influencing the minds of the masses.

Furthermore, if you look at some of Facebook’s employees, it’s not hard to see why they are censoring specific types of information. For example,  ex-DARPA Director and Google Executive Regina Dugan was an employee at Facebook. Nathan Gleicher worked at the US governments counsel for the US D.OJ. and is now the head of Cyber Security at Facebook. Joel Kaplan, a Deputy Chief of Staff for the US, is Facebook’s VP of Public Policy. There are several employees with similar backgrounds. Not many people know that Facebook has become a revolving door of employees between the corporation itself and the US government. We see this with various corporations like Monsanto and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as pharmaceutical companies and the Centers  for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

This is why we must carefully examine the recent piece Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes published in the New York times, calling for the break up of the social media giant due to the “staggering” and “unchecked” power of CEO Mark Zukerberg.

Before we go any further, I want to mention that a lot of blame has been put on Zuckerberg for Facebook’s actions as of late, particularly when it comes to the censorship of information, mass surveillance, and sharing of information that most people thought would remain private. But is it really only Zuckerberg? Or has Facebook been ‘taken over’ by ‘higher’ powers and made Zuckerberg the ‘fall guy,’ or the one to blame? Something to think about.

In his oped, co-founder Hughes points towards Facebook’s “sloppy privacy practices,” “violent rhetoric and fake news,” and the “unbounded drive to capture ever more of our time and attention.”

He goes on to say that “there is no precedent for Zuckerberg’s ability to monitor, organize and even censor the conversations of two billion people.”

Former National Security Director Warns The New Yorker – ‘The Terrifying Potential of the 5G Network’

B.N. Frank | Waking Times

The New Yorker published an article yesterday – “The Terrifying Potential of the 5G Network.”

In 2018, Robert Spalding’s job as senior director for strategic planning at the National Security Council included studying ways to insure that 5G can be made secure from cyberattacks.  He seemed more than qualified for the job.  In his interview with The New Yorker, he provides intricate details of why we should all be freaking out over 5G regardless of who installs it. His warnings also go beyond cybersecurity risks:

“What is existential to democracy is allowing totalitarian regimes—or any government—full knowledge of everything you do at all times,” he said. “Because the tendency is always going to be to want to regulate how you think, how you act, what you do.”

More from Spalding:

“I wasn’t looking at this from a policy perspective,” he said. “It was about the physics, about what was possible.”

 

Even before the introduction of 5G networks, hackers have breached the control center of a municipal dam system, stopped an Internet-connected car as it travelled down an interstate, and sabotaged home appliances. Ransomware, malware, crypto-jacking, identity theft, and data breaches have become so common that more Americans are afraid of cybercrime than they are of becoming a victim of violent crime.

Uh-huh. This has been reported many times before by many sources.

Adding more devices to the online universe is destined to create more opportunities for disruption. “5G is not just for refrigerators,” Spalding said. “It’s farm implements, it’s airplanes, it’s all kinds of different things that can actually kill people or that allow someone to reach into the network and direct those things to do what they want them to do. It’s a completely different threat that we’ve never experienced before.”

So the “Race for 5G” is for “all kinds of different things that can actually kill people” and Spalding isn’t the only one to say so.  Fabulous.

“It was meant to be a nationwide network,” Spalding told me, not a nationalized one. “They could build this network and then sell bandwidth to their retail customers. That was one idea, but it was never that the government would own the network. It was always about, How do we get industry to actually secure the system?”

Many other articles and at least one book have been written about how the American government and telecom regulators seem to have no right to ask the Telecom Industry to do much of anything.  Telecom expert, Bruce Kushnick has written A LOT about that.

Even before Spalding began working on his report, the telecom companies were rolling out what they were calling their new 5G services in test markets around the country.

Activist Post has reported about 5G “rollouts” before.  Many Americans have been fighting this in their communities.  (See also 12, 3, 4, 5678910)

Last summer, New Yorkers reported becoming sick after 5G was installed.  Their pets were sick too.  Some were putting their homes up for sale.  Last year, the first 5G court case was won in England but not after it had been installed, people became sick, and some women delivered stillborn babies.

As the Clemson University professor Thomas Hazlett told me, “This is just the transitional part. You have various experiments, you do trial in the market, and various deployments take place that lay a pathway to something that will be truly distinguishable from the old systems.”

It sounds like Professor Hazlett is saying that telecom companies are allowed to perform various experiments on the American people – regardless of the risks.  Unfortunately, experiments on the American people aren’t new and the apologies always seem to be too little, too late.

In the meantime, the carriers jockeyed for position. A lawsuit brought by Sprint and T-Mobile, which was settled on Monday, claimed that A.T. & T.’s 5GE service, where “E” stands for “evolution,” was just 4G by another name.

Just part of the experiment…

Spalding describes more greed-driven behavior by the Telecom Industry and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Ajit Pai, which seems to have led to Spalding being canned from his job.  The “Race for 5G” then continued without his interference.

Huawei, a Chinese manufacturer, is currently the global leader in 5G technology and has been accused by many sources of being a conduit to Chinese intelligence.

In an op-ed in the Washington Post, the Republican senators Tom Cotton, of Arkansas, and John Cornyn, of Texas, characterized the company, which is funded with subsidies from the Chinese government, as a Trojan horse that could “give China effective control of the digital commanding heights.”

The Times of London reported that the C.I.A. has evidence that Huawei has taken money from the P.L.A., as well as from branches of the Chinese intelligence service. Australia, Japan, and New Zealand have joined with the United States in banning Huawei hardware from their networks. So far, though, the Trump Administration’s campaign to shut out Huawei is finding limited traction.

Freaking out yet?

Huawei equipment is cheaper than its Western rivals and, in the estimation of researchers at the Defensive Innovation Board (DIB), which advises the Secretary of Defense on new technologies, in many cases, it is superior.

I feel sick.  Regardless, banning Huawei won’t secure the networks anyway.

Even in the absence of Huawei equipment, systems still may rely on software developed in China, and software can be reprogrammed remotely by malicious actors. And every device connected to the fifth-generation Internet will likely remain susceptible to hacking.

Your State Could Soon Be Taxing Your Netflix, Video Games, & Streaming Downloads

The government has never met a novel idea or consumer friendly product that they didn’t want to tax.

The latest case in point? Legislators are now trying to tax Netflix and any other type of content that can be downloaded or streamed. The idea is being pushed forward in Georgia, where lawmakers are proposing a tax on digital video, books, music and video games, according to a new piece in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Lawmakers are reportedly being coaxed by “dozens of lobbyists” working on behalf of major communication corporations. To the layperson, this means that the cost of services like Netflix, Hulu and Spotify would all go up.

Streaming content has become a customer-centric and cost efficient service that allows the consumer to cut prices on their entertainment by selecting only what they need. Legislators and internet providers see it as a giant pool of untapped cash that could be used to help build infrastructure in economically depressed areas of Georgia.

Those who are already connected to the Internet would wind up bearing the cost of a 4% tax that would go to benefit residents who don’t have high-speed access to online products yet. Georgia is just the latest state to consider this tax and similar proposals have been introduced in legislatures across the country.

The proposal pits customers against communication companies, like AT&T, who stand to profit as the tax would replace existing higher taxes on cable TV, phones and broadband equipment. About 66% of people in Georgia oppose the idea of taxing internet, TV and phone to raise money for rural internet. For a Netflix customer that pays $12.99 a month, a 4% tax would cost 52 cents per month, or $6.24 per year.

Net Neutrality Defenders Announce ‘Epic Final Protest’ to Demand Congress Repeal FCC Rollback Before Fast-Approaching Deadline

By Jessica Corbett | Common Dreams

Fight for the Future announced Wednesday that on Nov. 29, supporters of restoring nationwide net neutrality rules—which the Republican-controlled Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rolled back last year—are planning “an epic, final protest to pressure lawmakers before a crucial deadline to save the internet.”

Supporters of the Obama-era net neutrality protections, which blocked internet service providers (ISPs) from prioritizing or throttling access to certain online content, are urging Americans to contacts their members of Congress to fight for a vote before the winter holidays on a Senate-approved Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would reverse the repeal.

The measure still lacks the support it needs in the House to advance to President Donald Trump’s desk before this congressional session ends.

“We’ll need a simple majority of sign on to a ‘discharge petition’ in order to force a vote past leadership to the floor. That means we’ll need to convince all the Democrats and about 25 Republicans to support the CRA,” explains Battle for the Net, a coalition backing the resolution. “The clock is ticking—if the CRA resolution doesn’t get a vote this year, it dies when the new Congress comes into session in January 2019.”

Although the majority of Democrats support restoring the rules and will take control of the House in January, Republicans gained two Senate seats in the midterm elections earlier this month and the race in Mississippi has advanced to a runoff.

Advocacy groups have launched a scoreboard to track where lawmakers stand on the CRA resolution to help constituents determine whether they need to put pressure on their representatives. According to the real-time tracker, only one House Republican—Rep. Mike Coffman of Coloradohas announced his support for the resolution.

However, some Democrats also would need to be convinced by constituents to vote in favor of the resolution for it to pass. Fight for the Future, on Twitter, highlighted the 16 House Democrats who still oppose it:

Democratic supporters, meanwhile, continue to proclaim their dedication to restoring net neutrality:

To push members of the House to pass the resolution before this congressional session ends, net neutrality advocates are relying on three key tactics:

Global Internet Freedom Plummets as Governments Use Censorship and Surveillance to Quash Dissent

By Jessica Corbett | Common Dreams

Countries across the globe are following in the footsteps of the Chinese government, adopting authoritarian digital practices that pose serious threats to democracy, according to a new Freedom House report released Thursday.

For Freedom on the Net 2018 (pdf), more than 70 researchers comprehensively reviewed internet freedom in 65 countries that represent 87 percent of the world’s internet users. They documented declines in 26 countries—including the United States under the Trump administration as well as Egypt, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Kenya, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Venezuela—and improvements in only 19 nations.

They found that “disinformation and propaganda disseminated online have poisoned the public sphere. The unbridled collection of personal data has broken down traditional notions of privacy. And a cohort of countries is moving toward digital authoritarianism by embracing the Chinese model of extensive censorship and automated surveillance systems. As a result of these trends, global internet freedom declined for the eighth consecutive year in 2018.”

Researchers found that as “internet controls within China reached new extremes in 2018 with the implementation of the sweeping Cybersecurity Law and upgrades to surveillance technology,” Chinese officials also “have held trainings and seminars on new media or information management with representatives from 36 out of the 65 countries.”

As Freedom House president Michael Abramowitz told AFP, this pattern of countries shifting toward China’s model “poses a threat to the open internet and endangers prospects for greater democracy worldwide.”

Writing for the Washington Post‘s opinion page on Thursday, Abramowitz and Freedom House chairman Michael Chertoff expanded on the dangers of China exporting its digital authoritarianism. While calling on Congress to reintroduce and pass the Global Online Freedom Act, which would increase pressure on countries that engage in repressive digital practices to change their ways, they argued that:

…the best way for democracies to stem the rise of digital authoritarianism is to prove that there is a better model for managing the internet. We will have to tackle social media manipulation and misuse of data in a manner that respects human rights, while also preserving an internet that is global, free, and secure.

Policymakers should undertake serious efforts to protect critical infrastructure and citizens’ personal data from misuse by governments, companies and criminals. Tech companies should dramatically scale up their work with civil-society experts to maximize their own transparency and ensure that their platforms are not being misused to spread disinformation. As the 2016 elections in the United States showed, more-responsible management of social media and stronger privacy rights are needed to prevent malicious actors from exploiting open societies to undermine democracy.

In addition to calling out China for fueling a global decline in internet freedom the new report also details contributions from the United States and the Trump administration. Bolstering findings from Reporters Sans Frontières published earlier this year, Freedom House found that authoritarian governments the world over have co-opted President Donald Trump’s favored phrase “fake news” to justify crackdowns on dissent and digital rights.

“In the past year, at least 17 countries approved or proposed laws that would restrict online media in the name of fighting ‘fake news’ and online manipulation,” the report states.

Meanwhile, in the United States, the government has also taken steps over the past year to enable surveillance and limit the open internet. The GOP-controlled Congress reauthorized the FISA Amendments Act, including Section 702, and the Federal Communications Commission repealed net neutrality protections that required internet service providers to treat all content equally.

The report includes a series of recommendations…

For policymakers:

  • Ensure that all internet-related laws and practices adhere to international human rights law and standards;
  • Enact strong data protection laws to provide greater transparency and control over personal data;
  • Include human rights safeguards in national strategies on artificial intelligence (AI);
  • Fund rapid response capacity to counter attacks on internet freedom;
  • Impose sanctions—such as freezing of assets—on foreign tech companies involved in human rights abuses; and
  • In the United States, reintroduce and pass the Global Online Freedom Act (GOFA).

For the private sector:

  • Adhere to the U.N. Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights;
  • Conduct human rights impact assessments for new markets and commit to doing no harm;
  • Grant users control over their information and ensure that it is not being misused;
  • Ensure fair and transparent content moderation practices;
  • Engage in continuous dialogue with local civil society organizations;
  • Label automated “bot” accounts; and
  • Use internal expertise to help counter Chinese state censorship and protect users.

For civil society:

  • Partner with the private sector on fact-checking efforts;
  • Work with scholars to examine how disinformation spreads and why people are likely to share it;
  • Monitor home countries’ collaboration with Beijing and Chinese firms; and
  • Continue to raise awareness about government censorship and surveillance efforts.

Leaked Google Document Advises to “Police Tone Instead of Content” in the “Shift Towards Censorship”

 

Image Credit: Activist Post

By Aaron Kesel | Activist Post

 

Another Google document has found its way into the public domain, this time through Breitbart. The news publication reports that an 85-page briefing entitled “The Good Censor,” advises tech companies to “police tone instead of content” and to not “take sides” when censoring users.

This must be why Activist Post remains censored on YouTube and the wrongful suspension still hasn’t been removed, along with other accounts that were removed, or further why Iran has had 39 YouTube channels deleted. It must be Google’s “new position as ‘moderators in chief.’” (page 70)

The document, which can be read in full at Breitbart, admits in writing that big Silicon Valley companies including Google have shifted toward censoring users, moving away from their original values. Moreover, the mission to “create an unmediated ‘marketplace of ideas’” has become a plan by tech companies to “create well-ordered spaces for safety and civility.” (page 67)

As former Google PR rep Jessica Powell expressed, this is “creating serious problems in disguise of bettering the world.”

“We go about saying that we’re building these amazing things and doing great things for the world but we’re also causing a lot of serious problems,” Powell said.

Once again an internal leak within Google gives a rare glimpse into the company and its mindset.

Responding to the Breitbart leak, a Google source said the document should be considered “internal research, and not an official company position.”

The scary thing is that the document does not recommend a return to the original principles of “don’t be evil” (a phrase Google killed). Instead, the briefing file leaves the question open, suggesting Google may “shift with the times.”

However, the document recommends increased transparency to smooth over the process from free speech to censorship (or liberty to tyranny, one could say), according to the report. So anyone who has heard of George Orwell knows where our future is headed.

Google might continue to shift with the times – changing its stance on how much or how little it censors (due to public, governmental or commercial pressures). If it does, acknowledgment of what this shift in position means for users and for Google is essential. Shifting blindly or silently in one direction or another rightly incites users’ fury.

The Google “internal research” even quotes outside experts like George Soros who express justification of censorship in non-U.S. markets, noting that Google should police “tone instead of content” and “censor everyone equally,” as Breitbart put it.

It’s worth noting that George Soros was also involved in funding the “bullshit detector” a fact-checking engine backed by the Full Fact foundation, as Activist Post reported in 2017.

The document also proposes “behavior guidelines for users.” This is reminiscent of a leaked 2016 video to The Verge earlier this year, entitled “The Selfish Ledger” from within Google X that exposed an internal Google dialogue to create a dystopia run by the big social giant. The revelation showcased the other big problem the company faces — questions about harvesting its users’ data.

With that leak, the company’s dystopian future it seeks to achieve is exposed. The 9-minute video goes on to describe how Google could keep a ledger of all human behavior and then use it to manipulate your decisions and those of future generations. All with the ultimate goal of pushing the company’s values, offering services and products, and basically dictating the behavior of entire populations.

That video was dismissed as just a concept “meant to provoke discussion,” as well or in other words, “internal research.”

Then there is the most recent leak involving plans to implement a censored version of its search engine inside China, code-named “Dragonfly,” and suppressing the internal memo about it. Further, if that’s not enough, the company wants phone numbers linked to the searches.

Finally, in May, Activist Post reported that Google had removed multiple references to its old catchphrase “Don’t be evil” from its Code of Conduct. Employees expressed outrage over the company’s decision to work with the Pentagon’s Project Maven, including signing a petition, with some even quitting.

This caused Google to walk back the plans, denouncing support for Maven by stating that the company would not be renewing the military contract and would stop in 2019.

However, as Activist Post reported, the agreement was already signed, so the company is locked in for another year until the contract runs out in March 2019. Google can then legally stop assisting the government with the advancement of artificial intelligence for use with its drones, a nightmarish scenario that brings glimpses of the movie The Terminator to mind.

These leaks offer a rare glimpse into the types of conversations and the views the company might be having, as well as aligning with many of Google’s existing products that use AI; for example, suggesting routes in Google Maps, organizing albums in Google Photos, and even composing automated emails in Gmail.
