The European Union is considering banning facial recognition technology which has raised massive privacy concerns over the years since its inception, risking us walking into George Orwell’s nightmare 1984.
The European Commission is considering a ban on all facial recognition technology in public places for three to five years, the BBC reported.
The Commission hopes to examine the technology during these years with “a sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology and possible risk management measures could be identified and developed,” the EC’s 18-page white paper on facial recognition writes.
The proposal seeks to add to the already existing regulation surrounding privacy and data rights or the GDPR (General Data Protection Rights). The proposed law seeks to impose restrictions on “both developers and users of artificial intelligence, and urged EU countries to create an authority to monitor the new rules.”
According to the news agency, the proposals come amid calls from politicians and campaigners in the UK to stop the police from using live facial recognition for public surveillance.
Facial recognition technology has shown numerous issues over the years such as racial bias. Other problems notable by Fight For The Future, which ran a campaign against implementing the technology at music venues, cited “dangers to their fans in the form of police harassment including — misidentification, deportation, arrests for outstanding charges during an event and drug use during an event, discrimination at their concerts, and fans in a permanent government database,” all very valid concerns.
Last year, Activist Post consistently reported numerous studies finding that the technology’s accuracy isn’t all it’s marketed to be. Then Big Brother Watch, a watchdog observing UK Metropolitan Police trials, stated the technology misidentified members of the public, including a 14-year-old black child in a school uniform who was stopped and fingerprinted by police, as potential criminals in as much as 96 percent of scans, according to the organization in a press release.
Queensland Police could be using Stingray phone interceptors to unlawfully download the contents of your smart phone.
It is a common practice with American police to pull up beside a car at the lights and download your phone without you knowing it.
A motorist reported that she was traveling on the Mulligan Highway near Cooktown when she was intercepted by a police car which had been attending the Aurukun riots.(Aboriginal community)
The motorist tried to download messages when she got to her destination not long after the police intercept. She said her phone had been working perfectly before she was stopped.
“The phone went beserk, throwing up messages, the screen was jumping all over the place so I tried to turn it off, but couldn’t do that either,” she told Cairnsnews.
“After playing with the phone I managed to turn it off for about an hour then when I turned it back on it did the same thing. I let it go flat and charged it overnight and today it seems to be OK.”
The motorist said a passenger in the car had the same problem and had to leave it switched off all night while on the charger. She said this phone now seemed to work properly after receiving a call from the passenger complaining about the same problem.
A technician said the phones had displayed symptoms of being externally downloaded.

The new 8chan website, now called 8kun has been hard to access, due to tremendous online attacks but it was relaunched on an additional domain today: https://8kun.us
As a result, many Q drops ensued, the final one reading ominously: “Indictments coming.  Q”
For several months, many of us have been climbing the walls in anticipation the FISA abuse report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Sara Carter and others have reported that we’ll be seeing it by Thanksgiving or as early as next Monday.
In the meantime, it looks like the Bidens are in deeper trouble than ever. As Dave from the X22 Report says, “Every day that passes, it gets worse and worse for them…
“The New York Times reports that Joe Biden’s own staff thought a Ukrainian gas company paying hunter Biden $80,333 a month while his father was Vice President was unseemly or worse — and they made State Department officials help them to do damage control…
“The only reason why the Democrats are getting away with it is because the media allows it. We no longer have a Fourth Estate media to keep a check on government corruption. We haven’t had it in a long time.
“Instead, we have a media apparatus that actually participates in the schemes and helps sell the fraud. As Lee Smith eloquently said, ‘The media’s involvement in pushing the transparently false 2016 Russian narrative was an extinction-level event for their credibility.'”
Adding to our dystopia is Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style show trial, that is perverting American institutions beyond anything previously imaginable.
Tech giants, YouTube and Facebook are doing their part to protect the coup by de-platforming anyone who publishes the so-called whistleblower’s name.
The House Democrats cannot allow the so-called whistleblower to testify or he will implicate himself in Biden’s corruption scheme and the whole thing will fall apart — and if he doesn’t testify, the whole thing will fall apart. They’re backed int a corner.
House Democrats want to keep this going as a way to block what is coming; the DECLAS, the IG Report with several criminal referrals and most importantly, the indictments from Attorney General John Durham. Many members of the government will be charged.
Dave at the X22 Report gives us his excellent geopolitical report on the Deep State that is crumbling all over the world.
Letter to the Editor
I am writing to you seeking your support for the volunteers of the Queensland Rural Fire Brigades.
The State Government has slashed 13 million dollars from the Rural Fire budget for this financial year.
I have lodged an e-petition to the Parliament requesting the Government increase support for our Rural Fire volunteers by providing more equipment and resources to our Rural brigades, to counter the predicted increase in bushfires.
If you could log onto the Parliamentary e-petition web site
and add your name to the petition, it would be greatly appreciated.
Also, Please forward this message to all your friends and relatives, the safety of our volunteers and rural communities depend on the Government getting our message
Terry Gordon. Secretary Gordonbrook Rural Fire Brigade.
The Qld ALP state government in spite of the nonsense spruiked by the Premier on every recent TV bulletin about ‘unprecedented’ bushfires and how good is the RFS, does not like the RFS as witnessed by the urban brigades’ takeover. It has stalled because Annastacia is set to sack more than 11,000 RFS volunteers for refusing to apply for a working with children blue card. She does not have the lawful authority, according to the best legal advice, to enforce anything upon volunteers. There are no contractual agreements between the ‘State Government’ and individual volunteers.

No reply from Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine which makes him, like former PM John Howard, complicit in Australia’s first government sanctioned terror event
REQUEST DENIED HINE DID NOT REPLY TO THREE QUERIES 17FEB2019 Darren HINE Tasmania Police Hobart TAS 7000 AUSTRALIA Commissioner HINE,
Thank you for your attention to the following non-copyrighted letter. An archivist in Tasmania (Nicki.Ottavi@education.tas.gov.au) presented an egregious paper at the national conference of the Australian Society of Archivists conducted in Perth, Western Australia, on 25-28SEP2018. Details related to Ottavi’s presentation plus an image of her appear on p.xviii of the bookOFFICIALTERROR…. (768pp). [amended 05MAR2019]What follows are some of Ottavi’s words from an electronic youtube tran-script.
No copies of her paper were made available to the public by Ottavi, or by the Australian Society of Archivists, or by Tasmania Police. WHY?: I…registered it into our system it became known as transfer to nine zero zero….; …Tasmania Police rec-ords of the Port Arthur massacre will be open to the public in 2071….; …they are an e75 access restric-tion which means they’re closed for 75 years and the e means that only one person or position can grant access in this case only the Commissioner of Police.
Given Tasmania Police is a public agency funded 100 percent by taxpay-ers to serve not deny the public, Ottavi’s words are shocking. They have generated more concern in Australia re the official terror at and near Port Arthur, Tasmania (28-29APR1996), a massacre in which international and national victims were killed (35) and wounded (23). Thus in relation to the boldface italicized words of Ottavi as appear above, you are herewith requested to address the three queries following:
- Are Ottavi’s words an accurate description of the official policy re the availability of Port Arthur massacre records held by Tasmania Police?; 2. Under what legislation are the Port Arthur massacre records held by Tasmania Police being secreted away from the public for 75 years?; 3. Under what legislation has the police commissioner been appointed sole arbiter of access re Port Arthur massacre records now held by Tasmania Police and now secreted away from the public for 75 years? 1/2 c
- OFFICIAL COVER-UP PROOF PUBLIC DENIED POLICE RECORDS FOR 75 YEARS!POLICE COMMISSIONER SOLE ACCESS ARBITER!OFFICIAL MASSACRE PORT ARTHUR 1996
ADDRESSEE DARREN HINE; TASMANIA POLICE; 17FEB2019
A copy of this letter appears in OFFICIAL TERROR…. [amended 05MAR2019]Space for your replies to the three queries will be reserved in said book until 28FEB2019. If you do not reply, then your unacceptable failing will be highlighted in said book, and elsewhere in and out of Australia. Also note that if you fail to reply, it is understandable people will conclude there is no legislation in Tasmania that permits the withholding of public documents and/or permits a public servant (you) to be sole arbiter of access to public documents. If such legislation exists, it identifies Tasmania as a police state (a government that exercises power arbitrarily through the power of the police force– wikipedia). And finally, some points of concern for you – and our other readers: a)
You are a senior member of Australia & New Zealand SEBP (Society of Evidence Based Policing Inc.) On one hand it seems you value “Evidence Based Policing.” But on the other you are willing to ignore exculpatory evidence confirming Martin Bryant is INNOCENT – this boy-man (66 IQ) is the patsy. Not only ignore it, but as a gate- keeper you are now participating in the withholding of exculpatory evidence from the public for 75 years.
Surely you understand the immorality of Bryant being denied an ethical lawyer, of him having his persistent NOTguiltyplea rejected,of him being falsely convicted with NO trial, of him being incarcerated in Risdon Prison since 1996, etc. b)Let us not forget James Boyce’s LOSING STREAK: How Tasmania Was Gamed by the Gaming Industry. That officials covered up crimes is revealed in his 2017 book: “…at some point the file was accidentally misplaced or deliberately destroyed, and it cannot be located.”
Corrupt officials do this with files containing truths dangerous to them. Dr.Boyce goes on:”The current police commissioner [you] has refused to give permission for the release of further supplementary material.” So it seems you have withheld evidence in this gambling case. If true, the long-deceived people of Australia, especially families, relatives, and friends of all 58 victims officially shot at Port Arthur, can expect nothing from you re the records secreted byTasmania Police.

Freedom of choice must be made; we the citizens have the right to Black Ban QANTAS for interfering with our democratic right of freedom of religious expression and belief. Our friends and family fought and died in wars for these freedoms and every Australian that honours what our Diggers fought for, and every Christian and other religious believer must now unite as an army of Freedom Fighters against QANTAS and refuse to use their business.
They wanted to use their financial power of sponsorship to destroy and discredit a decent man and the beliefs of millions of Australians, the people have stood behind Israel Folau to the back him with over $2 to fight for our combined freedom.
We reject the dictatorial attitude of QANTAS and their attempt to override freedom of speech and expression of religious beliefs. The entire QANTAS organisation, directors, management and staff are condemned by your unacceptable thin-skinned petty attack on our freedom. The company made the complaint, so it encompasses the entire organisation, not just one person, appearing that the complainant/s overrides the opinions and beliefs of all staff.
‘We The People’, will no long tolerate the noisy minorities of do-gooders, social engineers, bleeding hearts, professional victims, mixed genders and those of limited intelligence directing the agenda of out nation. It stops now, the people’s voice is behind Israel Folau and his beliefs of freedom of expression and the right to be heard, we will no longer tolerate the noisy rabbled overriding freedom or insulting what our diggers fought for.
Australia is the land of the free, if you do not like it please leave, feel free to migrate to China or North Korea.

“Why our food depends on Bees” (SundayMail 16/6), Einstein is quoted as saying “When the Bees die so do we”, for they pollinate all our food crops, but there is another far more important factor no one wants to discuss—”When CO2 drops to 180ppm all plants and Bees will die”, and so will all life that feeds off them.
Fanaticism has blinded reality in many minds, the average CO2 over the past 30 M years was 1,200 ppm and all life flourished. The Bees are in serious trouble from Electro Magnetic Fields from phones, Wi-Fi and pesticides causing their deaths. I
In The Hague 5G tests resulted 297 starlings roosting nearby dropping dead out of the trees, water birds on the lake nearby suddenly left. University study of the dead bird found internal bleeding.
Studies also have found that EMF exposure can remove calcium ions (positively charged calcium ions) from cell membranes in the brain. Loss of calcium ions destabilizes the membrane and can have serious metabolic and neurological consequences. Our Bees have no hope unless we seriously fight to save them.

With government and elections on many people’s minds this week, is it possible for epistles written two millennia ago to be relevant to this topic today?
It’s not hard to find discussion somewhere on the topic of “biblical government” as referenced by St Paul in his letter to the Romans and his often controversial statement in 13:1: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”
People reading this immediately think “what about Hitler? What about Stalin? What about ….”
I think what Paul is driving at here is the broad issue of government authority and those who administer the law, not popularly elected parties or national leaders, or despots. St Paul goes on to explain: “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”
God gave flawed mankind law and authorities in order to provide peace, security and justice for communities. Of course our human systems of government often do not work and are prone to corruption.
Many are aware of issues around our corporate state structure and will argue with cops on the side of the road about these profound issues.
Mostly it’s better to give the cop a break i.e. take the apostle’s big-picture advice and “submit to the authorities”. Pull over, say gidday mate, what’s the problem? Remember: “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
It’s better to take the matters of law to court or just deal with them as the system provides.

Even if you disable GPS, deactivate phone location tracking, and turn off your phone, it’s still possible for Google and the NSA to monitor your every move.
Police have illegally been using Stingray devices to eavesdrop on your calls for years.
Over the last two decades, cellphone use has become an everyday part of life for the vast majority of people around the planet. Nearly without question, consumers have chosen to carry these increasingly smart devices with them everywhere they go. Despite surveillance revelations from whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, the average smartphone user continues to carry the devices with little to no security or protection from privacy invasions.
Americans make up one of the largest smartphone markets in the world today, yet they rarely question how intelligence agencies or private corporations might be using their smartphone data. A recent report from the New York Times adds to the growing list of reasons why Americans should be asking these questions. According to the Times, law enforcement have been using a secret technique to figure out the location of Android users. The technique involves gathering detailed location data collected by Google from Android phones, iPhones, and iPads that have Google Maps and other Google apps installed.
The location data is stored inside a Google database known as Sensorvault, which contains detailed location records of hundreds of millions of devices from around the world. The records reportedly contain location data going back to 2009. The data is collected whether or not users are making calls or using apps.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) says police are using a single warrant—sometimes known as a “geo-fence” warrant—to access location data from devices that are linked to individuals who have no connection to criminal activity and have not provided any reasonable suspicion of a crime. Jennifer Lynch, EFF’s Surveillance Litigation Director, says these searches are problematic for several reasons.
“First, unlike other methods of investigation used by the police, the police don’t start with an actual suspect or even a target device—they work backward from a location and time to identify a suspect,” Lynch wrote. “This makes it a fishing expedition—the very kind of search that the Fourth Amendment was intended to prevent. Searches like these—where the only information the police have is that a crime has occurred—are much more likely to implicate innocent people who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Every device owner in the area during the time at issue becomes a suspect—for no other reason than that they own a device that shares location information with Google.”
The problems associated with Sensorvault have also concerned a bipartisan group of lawmakers who recently sent a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. The letter from Democrats and Republicans on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee gives Google until May 10 to provide information on how this data is used and shared. The letter was signed by Democratic Representatives Frank Pallone and Jan Schakowsky and Republicans Greg Walden and Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
Google has responded to the report from the Times by stating that users opt-in to collection of the location data stored in Sensorvault. A Google representative also told the lawmakers that users “can delete their location history data, or turn off the product entirely, at any time.” Unfortunately, this explanation falls flat when one considers that Android devices log location data by default and that it is notoriously difficult to opt-out of data collection.
No matter what promises Google makes, readers should remember that back in 2010, the Washington Post published a story focusing on the growth of surveillance by the National Security Agency. That report detailed an NSA technique that “enabled the agency to find cellphones even when they were turned off.” The technique was reportedly first used in Iraq in pursuit of terrorist targets. Additionally, it was reported in 2016 that a technique known as a “roving bug” allowed FBI agents to eavesdrop on conversations that took place near cellphones.

As the creator of some of the finest independent documentaries on YouTube, TruthstreamMedia have been on the leading edge of our descent into censorship, at times chronicling their own struggles with Google’s algorithms.
Under the rubric of countering misinformation, Google has been making presentations on their new “anti-fake news system” at places like the Munich Security Conference, a venue that’s supposed to be about countering the threat of terrorist attacks in Europe.
The goal is to build an Artificial Intelligence that will authorize and verify all the information being shared in the videos on their platform, for the purpose of categorizing and suppressing anything that contradicts Google’s Corporatist politics. The ultimate goal appears to be to make the Alternative Media disappear, despite this genre being what built YouTube and what continues to make it so great.
Their automated censorship systems, of course will do nothing to suppress or de-platform such “news” outlets CNN and MSNBC for aggressively lying and broadcasting seditious propaganda for the past 2 years and putting the world and especially Americans through the Hell of a psychological civil war, in their conspiracy to overthrow the President.
For Alphabet-Google-YouTube, treason against the US is OK but dissidence against Globalism is not.

The Labor Member for Cook, Cynthia Lui, from Yam Island in the Torres Strait, is urging northern recreational anglers to record their catches.
In the Cairns Post ‘Household Fish Quiz’ Cynthia is asking weekend fishermen to make and send these records to the Fisheries Department so they can collate the numbers and species being landed.
Any fisherman who falls for this entrapment would be a complete fool.
By hook, line or sinker Cynthia’s carefully woven spider web is enticing you to tell big brother about your catch so the Marxists of the State Labor Government can introduce much tougher legislation to regulate amateur and sports fishermen.
Look at what the Labor Government has just done to the professional fishing fleet.
The hard pressed fishermen of the local fleet have been forced to spend thousands to install GPS devices which record their vessel’s every movement in real time even if crossing a ‘Green’ area to get to regulated fishing grounds.
The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries intends to make fishmeal of those few struggling commercial fishermen left in the north.
Up and up will go the cost of ‘fishing licences’ (and fish) and soon you will need a licence to buy a rod or hook.
We urge all fishermen, commercial or amateur to revolt against the fascist Queensland Government. There is not a court of competent jurisdiction in Australia.
Read senator-in-exile Rod Culleton’s foray into the UK court system which has systematically overturned any authority of an Australian court which functions under the fictitious ‘Queen of Australia.’
