Facebook is reading your mind

by Alex Bruce

We’re all totally sick and tired of talking about Facebook but Melissa Dykes has done such a splendid job of taking Facebook out to the woodshed and I’ve shaved off the first nine minutes of soundbites that many of us have already seen with former Facebook top executives, Sean Parker and Chamath Palihapitiya.

The presentation begins to get very creepy when Melissa describes how her own newsfeed on Facebook seemed to attempt to coerce her into correcting her opinions. Then it gets even worse: Facebook coerced her to correct her thinking by using a dopamine-driven, social validation feedback loop!

When one considers that 2 billion people per month use Facebook and that the average person spends 6 hours per week using it, the implications for this degree of mass control are horrifying.

And it gets creepier. Facebook is currently working on a mind-reading device so that users can make posts directly from their own thoughts. We shouldn’t be surprised, as this is the panopticon-like direction that things have been going for quite some time.

To head up this effort, Facebook hired former Google and DARPA agent Regina Dugan, who proudly announced, “In a few years’ time, we expect to demonstrate a real-time silent speech system capable of delivering a hundred words per minute.”

Dugan was careful to defuse any incipient paranoia by adding, “To be clear, we are not talking about decoding your random thoughts! That might be more than any of us care to know. We’re talking about decoding those words; the ones you’ve already decided to share by sending them to the speech center of your brain.” Right! Perish the thought that they would ever care to datamine your thought process – even if that’s exactly what keystroke-logging software has already been doing for over 20 years.

Meatspace has become a big data 24/7/365 lab for the tech giant minions of the Globalists. It should come as no surprise that politicians are availing themselves of these tools by hiring companies like Cambridge Analytica on the one hand, while on the other hand making a big stink about Facebook running ads allegedly bought by a pro-Kremlin Internet Research Agency.

Liberal government heading down the Chinese social score slippery slope using facial recognition to identify dissenters

by Alex Bruce

Australia on track with Canada to catalogue its citizens

No sooner has Xi Jinping donned the mantle of “Paramount” Leader-for-life and ramped-up Internet censorship than the “social credit” system outlined in 2014 has been unleashed upon the Chinese public, with people now being barred from air travel or riding on trains if their social credit score is found to be lacking, under the “Once untrustworthy, always restricted” policy.

A few months ago, I researched a story about China’s new Sesame Credit-powered social rating system, with China’s answer to Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group Ltd. as one of its architects. The new Chinese social credit system merges individual credit and legal records and social media accounts, claiming to foster “sincerity culture” and “traditional virtues” to improve the honesty a creditworthiness of society as a whole.

Australia is the western world’s guinea pig for a massive citizen surveillance system soon to match that of China where innocent people are jailed for having biometrically assessed ‘bad thoughts’.  Your assessment can lower your social credit score making you unable to participate in the trappings of life and relegated to a second rate citizen status

If your “citizen ranking” sinks too low, you cannot travel, buy property, send your child to a good school or even eat at a nice restaurant. Every aspect of life factors in. Online shopping habits are traced, with certain purchases dragging down your score, such as video games. The government looks at your bills, your school records, whether you jaywalk and even whether you visit your parents enough. Your social media accounts are checked for any form of dissent. Your score can tank, cutting you off from your life if your enter the wrong numbers while paying a court fee, as Chinese journalist, Liu Hu found out, according to 9News in Australia.

The final version of this scoring system is set to be implemented in 2020. It will relay real-time data reports to government officials, law enforcement and maybe to certain private citizens. Law enforcement is currently testing eye glasses with advanced facial recognition software that pull data from national databases, to instantly recognize criminals or political dissidents and which could conceivably be plugged into this social credit system.

This is not an Orwellian freak show reserved for an increasingly repressive Communist state. A Sesame Credit-type Carrot Rewards app has already been rolled out in Canada, in what James Corbett calls a “merger of behavioural science, gaming and government.”

Australia has outdone Communist China with citizen surveillance

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) has commenced a review of the Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 and the Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018.The Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 will facilitate the exchange of identity-information between the Commonwealth and State and Territory Governments as agreed by COAG under the Intergovernmental Agreement on Identity Matching Services of October 2017. The Bill will authorise the Department of Home Affairs to collect, use and disclose identification information in order to operate the systems that will support a set of new biometric face-matching services

Former army officer now Liberal member for Canning in WA, Andrew Hastie, is tying up the loose ends in what is probably the most comprehensive citizen surveillance system on Earth. This cross-matching of roadside infared car passenger photos, eye retina and facial recognition records from your drivers licence and passport will be stored in a massive Canberra data base. It seems reciprocal arrangements with overseas law enforcement agencies will allow your personal details to be accessed from almost anywhere in the world. What a prize for the extra-Orwellian police state now called the New World Order?

The Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018 will amend the Australian Passports Act 2005 to make Australian travel document data available for the purposes of identity-matching services.The PJCIS Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP, said that “It is vital that a nationally-consistent approach to data-sharing is put in place so that law enforcement and national security agencies can use facial images to identify individuals in circumstances where they or others may be under threat”.The Committee intends to report by mid-May 2018.

Enquiries:
Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP (Canning, WA) on 08 9534 8044 (Electorate office) or (02) 6277 4223 (Parliament House)

Further information about the inquiry can be accessed via the Committee’s website

The Committee invites written submissions to the inquiry to be received no later than 21 March 2018. Information on how to make a submission is available on the Committee’s website.

Both Bills will support the Commonwealth to meet its obligations under the intergovernmental agreement to deliver fast, secure identity-matching services and improve Australia’s national security, law enforcement, community safety and road safety capabilities.

Editor: It should be noted the Coalition of Australian Governments(state corporations) is not recognised by the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia. COAG’s validity is in doubt. So are its policy agreements between state Premiers whose lawful position is CEO of each corporate state.

This huge social experiment fits in with all other earlier technological surveillance leaps taken by Australian corporate government. This time around the United States will follow our lead to enable the financial oligarchy to complete the enslavement of the people, better known as the sheeple.

This massive information exchange has nothing to do with national security. It is all about people control and eugenics.

“YouTube Is Now Terminating Truth” – Ron Johnson

by Alexandra Bruce

A funny thing happened after YouTube was founded. Whether foreseen or not, YouTube became a robust platform for dissident citizen media.

YouTube was fertile ground for citizen cynicism about 9/11, Neocons and their policy of Endless War; it was a place where everyday people awoke to Realpolitik.

Citizens posting and learning each other’s views in a relatively uncensored environment caused mass awareness to increase exponentially. It was rightly “credited” (or “blamed”) for Hillary Clinton’s upset failure in the 2016 US Presidential Election. In desperation, the Establishment chalked up this rising consciousness to “Fake News”.

Absurdly, they claimed that the increasing awareness of the people was a result of “Russian propaganda” and “Russian Bots”, as if branding it with hackneyed pejoratives from a bygone era would make it not be true that an increasing number of regular people do not like or trust their governments – and they definitely don’t believe that the Democrats are the “good guys”.

This growing group of regular people in America, in the West – and the world over are not “Fake News” and we are not “Russian Bots”. We are keenly aware of the degeneracy and corruption of our leaders and their Mainstream Media mouthpieces. They can call us whatever they want. Pronouncements from these shellacked minions have lacked the ring of truth…forever.

In the 1950s, innocent Left-leaning Americans, who wanted working people to be protected from the depredations of Corporatism, which is what the Left is the US is supposed to be about – but the furthest thing from the truth today were Blacklisted for imagined “Russkie” associations. How can the irony of this be lost on today’s so-called Left? How ironic can it get, that today’s Left are accusing their political enemies of Russian “entanglements”, at a time when Russia has long since ceased to be Communist – and as if the “Russkies” were anything other than a manufactured threat to begin with!

If these Think Tank idiots actually believe that labeling a growing majority of normal people as some kind of ridiculous “Red Menace” du jour rather than knowing us for the “normies” that we are, they need to find some honest work for a change. Time to grow out of that inane “Strategy of Tension” and to get real. I don’t like Lindsey Graham but he got it right when he said, “Russia has an economy the size of Italy.”

Ron Johnson joins Sean at the SGTreport to discuss the termination of his very popular YouTube channel, which was among dozens of leading Alternative News sites that were deleted in recent days without warning or recourse, due to (bogus) claims of “bullying.” These allegations are completely without merit, made under the guise of “protecting” victims of the Florida High School massacre and for the actual purpose of squelching a critical analysis of events.

Sustained repression of the truth will hopefully have a Streisand Effect and all attempts to obscure it will have the unintended consequence of publicizing it more widely.

It is the end of an era for Alternative News and the beginning of a new one – one that will necessarily take place away from YouTube.

Locations of new P 2 P speed cameras in Qld

Drive for traffic revenue escalated by a broke ALP State Government

The second round of public surveillance will soon be deployed by Queensland Police in the South East of the State when point to point speed cameras are rolled out later this year.

The Labor State Government has called tenders for the Point to Point (P2P) Average Speed Camera System to be installed in the South East region.

All vehicles including trucks will be monitored for an average speed between points.

GPS monitoring will be used to define both geographic points to calculate the speed of the vehicle between the points.

P 2 P cameras will soon be collecting millions going to consolidated revenue for the Labor State Government under the guise of ‘road safety’.

Any speed detections will be sent in real time from the equipment to police and The Main Roads department computer data bank.

This is the first time such surveillance methods have been used in Queensland. The Labor Party has outdone the Liberals in transgressing the privacy of motorists who will have to dig much deeper into their pockets to fund the largesse of the Queensland ALP.

Cairns News received from a trucking industry source the locations where the P2P cameras will be installed.

Beenleigh to Gaven, approx. 30 klm installed on overpasses.

Gateway Motorway between Nudgee and Bracken Ridge

Toowoomba second range crossing. All eastbound and westbound marked traffic lanes, including hard shoulders along the primary corridor, will be monitored.

Cecil Plains to Gore Hwy

Between Warrego Highway east and New England Highway (east and west bound)

Camera located 33.3 km west of Warrego Highway (east)

Camera located 10.3km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Between Mort Street interchange and Warrego Highway west (east and west bound)

Camera located 18.6km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Camera located 10.3km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey’s spin

The Camera Detected Offence Program (CDOP) is a key road safety element of the Queensland Speed Management Strategy and the National and Queensland Road Safety Action Plans. CDOP is managed jointly by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and the Queensland Police Service (QPS). The Traffic Camera Office (TCO) manages CDOP activities on behalf of the QPS.

Mr Bailey will be safe from the predatory cameras – he doesn’t drive a car.

Real women say stop demonising men just because you hate them

Catherine Deneuve leads group of 100 women denouncing #MeToo campaign for ‘puritanism’

from the ABC and Cairns News

Actress Catherine Deneuve and 99 other French women have denounced a backlash against men following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, saying the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment amounts to “puritanism” and is fuelled by a “hatred of men”.

In the aftermath of accusations against the US movie producer, millions of women took to social media to share their stories of being sexually harassed or assaulted, using the #MeToo hastag worldwide or #SquealOnYourPig (#balancetonporc).

 

French actress Catherine Deneuve  says the puritan campaign against men has gone too far saying a man’s right to “pester” a woman was an essential part of sexual freedom.
Sydney-based commentator and author, Stewie Jones-Cartwright agrees, telling Cairns News  the legion of “men-hating dykes” working for the ABC and other extremist women’s groups are getting too much media attention over normal male and female interaction. The media should be censored over their campaigns against men, he said.

 

“This urge to send men to the slaughterhouse, instead of helping women be more autonomous, helps the enemies of sexual freedom,” the 100 women, including 74-year old Deneuve, one of France’s most famous screen stars, said in a column published by Le Monde daily.

The man’s right to “pester” a woman was an essential part of sexual freedom, they said, describing the campaign as “puritanism”.

Marlene Schiappa, the French minister tasked with cracking down on violence against women, said the Weinstein scandal forced a rethink of attitudes towards sexual harassment in France, a country that cherishes its self-image as the land of seduction and romance.

Ms Schiappa kicked off nationwide consultations on a law that is due to include steps to fight sexual harassment on the streets as well as extend the statute of limitation for rape of minors.

In late October, protesters in Paris disrupted the opening of a retrospective of Roman Polanski’s work following new rape allegations against the French-Polish film director.

But for Deneuve and the other signatories of the letter, including writers and journalists, this went too far.

“This vigilante (online) justice has punished men in their jobs, forced some to resign, when all they did was touch a knee, try to steal a kiss, talk about ‘intimate’ matters in a work dinner,” they wrote.

“We defend a right to pester, which is vital to sexual freedom.”

Sydney commentator Stewie Jones-Cartwright said the campaign against men had gone on for too long, leaving a trail littered with wrecked lives and broken families over often false accusations by women.

“The Family Court is known among men’s groups as a forum to legally denounce mostly innocent husbands or defactos as child abusers, rapists or worse,” he said.

“The Craig McLachlan case is one of the worst media circuses I have seen in decades similar to the Rolf Harris acquittal on appeal in the UK on some charges which were false allegations of sexual abuse.

“The men-hating lesbians in the media should be sacked and prosecuted for their long campaign against often innocent men.”

Queensland farmers should stick to their guns fighting the ALP’s Weapons Branch

by Gil Hanrahan, editor-at-large

Queensland farmers want to stick to their guns but the Labor infested public service has refused several hundred handgun licence renewals over the past 18 months causing many cases of animal cruelty.

Farmers need handguns, which have been a part of their tools-of-trade since the first sheep and cattle were offloaded at Botany Bay in 1788.

Comrade Palaszczuk intends to give farmers a torrid time in the next parliament starting with handgun confiscation

But the socialist Queensland Labor Party is denying them a licence to carry one even if a farmer has been licenced for 20 or more years without incident or a change in circumstances.

Should a farmer find a cow with a dead calf stuck in its uterus while giving birth and the cow is on its last gasp after the crows have pecked out its eyes and those of the calf, he has no option but to kill the cow. How? He is 20 klms from the house and the nearest rifle because he is on a horse or motorbike.

He could cut the cow’s throat with a pocket knife, that is if he is still allowed to carry one.

The LNP Opposition in 2011 helped outlaw pocket knives by voting with the ALP to ban them. Agforce was dead quiet about this one.

 

Once  a farmer would take his revolver out of its holster and shoot the cow, being the most humane thing to do while appeasing the brain-dead Animals Australia and the RSPCA both of which refuse to provide midwives for Brahman cows.

There are a number of alternatives for hard-pressed farmers such as buying one of many anecdotal ‘hot’ handguns available on the black market or to inadvertently misplace the licenced pistol, which happens on occasion.

Katters Australia Party State leader Robbie Katter says he will step up the pressure on the Labor Party when Parliament resumes to force the ALP Marxists to instruct the Weapons Branch to renew all licences for farmers.Police Minister Comrade Ryan like his predecessor Captain Bill Byrne has a generational hatred of farmers as this new parliament will reveal.

The Qld Weapons Licencing Branch is refusing handgun licence renewals for farmers falsely claiming they have no need. The ALP infested-Administrative Tribunals Commission is backing the misleading interpretations of regulations by police. Soon only police will carry handguns.

There is palpable union and Labor animosity towards those on the land producing clean and green food for Queenslanders, which unfortunately includes the Labor Party. Agriculture will be in for a torrid time unless the KAP cross-bench can hold them at bay.

The ALP is skating on climate-changing, thin ice even though it has a two seat majority, thanks to an abundance of vote fraud and the ethnic welfare vote. Before the new parliament sits, the Member for Mulgrave and former Treasurer Curtis Pitt is about to be hauled before the powerful Ethics Committee after the LNP alleged he misled the last parliament by pushing through a sweetheart deal for the Tram and Bus Union. Pitt’s fate is up in the air.

Another alternative is for farmers to launch a Federal Court class action to lay bare the unlawful Australia Act 1986 and the alterations to the Queensland Constitution in 2001 by the political miscreant, Peter Beattie without a referendum.

Has anyone noticed since 2001 how Beattie, Bligh, Newman and Palaszczuk refer to “my government’. Does anyone remember giving the ‘government’ to an individual?

Beattie removed the Queen and installed the Premier as the new head of State for the corporate, Socialist Republic of Queensland.The legal mechanism used by the malcontent Beattie can be found in the record of proceedings in the Cairns Magistrates Court: Queensland Police  –v- Walter, 2016, QP1700886562 QPS.

If farmers could actually band together for the common good just for once, the Federal Court would have little alternative but to find there is no criminal law in Queensland applying to those citizens outside of the political parties, just the common law which exists across the nation.

 

Gangs of black African savages rape and pillage Melbourne suburbia

Coming soon to a suburb near you, compliments of the UN, Labor/Greens and Liberals

from The Age

A 59-year-old woman attacked and held hostage in a home by up to a dozen African youths has lost the main connection to her husband who is in intensive care after a Christmas Eve heart attack.

A relative of the woman said she was grabbed, beaten, and forced to give up the code to her iPad after the youths smashed into the home in Hillside, in Melbourne’s west.

As the woman’s husband is in intensive care, she can only visit him for short periods and uses the iPad to keep in contact with him.

Just before 11.30pm Thursday, the woman went to let a pet dog out into the backyard, through a large double-glass door. When she pulled up the blinds, she was confronted with between eight and 12 youths of African appearance leaping over the pool fence toward her.

“So she ran. This window is double-glazed, and they’ve just smashed right through it,” said relative Paul.

“So she nearly made it to the front door, she tripped over our dog. But one got through this part of the window and grabbed her, smacked her in the mouth. Apparently he then opened the front door and there was another one.”

She was house-sitting for relatives Samantha and her husband Paul while they were away on holiday, they told The Age on Friday.

The woman was held hostage in her front room as the gang rampaged through the house, stealing an Xbox, shoes, and Christmas money one of the couple’s young children had collected before stealing their car. They smashed several walls and a television.

“Her husband had a heart attack Christmas Eve, and he’s in intensive care,” Paul said.

“She begged them not to take her iPad because that’s her connection to her husband.”

After the youths left, the woman staggered out of the house and contacted neighbours, who eventually called Paul and Samantha. The couple spent Friday mopping up a trail of blood and blocking over the smashed glass door.

“These cops I spoke to this morning, they are frustrated,” Samantha said.

“I said ‘I feel sorry for you guys, you do all the hard work, and it gets to the next level, and there is no consequences’.”

She said the police officers agreed with her.

“I just don’t know how they can bluntly come into people’s homes and grab onto things that aren’t even theirs. They don’t realise the impact they have on your spirit and the way you feel. I feel unsafe, I feel scared for my kids.”

The Age understands police have taken CCTV footage from a nearby house, as well as fingerprints from the crime scene.

The attack was part of a violent crime spree in Melbourne’s west, including home invasions and assaults, that police described as “thuggish and abhorrent”.

The number of young men involved is yet to be determined.  Victoria Police Commander for the north west metro region Russell Barrett said at a media conference on Friday, but all the victims had told police the offenders were of “African appearance”.

Commander Barrett said it was too early to determine whether the violence was linked to the same group of young offenders, however, it is likely they were given the crimes were committed within a few kilometres of each other.

A second home invasion took place just about 12.45am on Friday in Coleridge Drive, Delahey.

An 18-year-old victim of the home invasion said he was returning home from work about 12.45am when he found three young men attempting to smash their way through his front door as he pulled into the driveway.

He said the men were able to break the glass panel next to the door before his dad heard them and armed himself with a baseball bat inside.

“He just started hitting their hands with the baseball bat so they couldn’t undo the lock,” he said. “But as soon as I got there, they saw the headlights of the car, and they just started running I think they thought I was the cops or something.”

The father, also who did not want to be indentified, said one of the men managed to get into the house through the garage door and stole a mobile phone that was on the floor in the living room before fleeing.

He said another two men who were trying to smash their way through the front door were screaming “come out here, we’re going to kill you”.

“My wife was already in bed and she didn’t know what was happening,” he said. “I thought they were going to kill me, I just kept hitting them with the bat then my son got home. We feel really scared to be here now.”

The teenager said his 25-year-old brother and mother were also inside during the attack and the family would be installing security cameras this weekend.

“We’re all pretty shaken up and tired,” he said. “It’s made us feel like we aren’t even safe in our own home.”

The teenager said the three young men fled into a getaway car.

He pulled out of the driveway and chased after them.

“I wanted to get a car registration number or something I could tell police,” he said. “But they were driving so fast and running red lights, I couldn’t catch them.”

Other residents in Coleridge Drive say they’re living in fear, with cars and houses regularly broken into.

One resident, Samuel Momo, said his family no longer parked their cars on the street after his dad’s car was broken into a number of times last year.

Mr Momo said he wasn’t shocked by the latest home invasion in his neighbourhood.

“There was a gun shooting across the road from our house a few years back,” Mr Momo said.

“It’s almost like the norm here. I don’t think it’s a recent thing either, there’s always been a fair bit of crime. We keep the house locked up at night. Even if it’s a hot night, we might open a window to let a bit of air in but we turn off all the lights so nobody can see in.”

Another resident said he stepped out the front of his house last week to see his mum’s car has been “kicked in”.

“The windscreen was smashed, there was glass everywhere,” he said. “It’s a pretty common occurrence. At one stage it was happening (to cars in the street) about twice a week. Other times cars speeding down the street have ploughed straight into houses.”

The man who has lived in the neighbourhood  for seven years said while he felt there had always been an element of crime in the area, he had noticed an increased presence of teenagers on the streets at night in recent months.

“I see mobs of youth walking down the street at night a lot,” he said. “Sometimes they’re not doing anything too suss from what I can see, but they’re always loud and they walk together in big groups which would be intimidating for anyone walking down the street.”

Another resident who also did not want to be named said she never opened her windows or doors and kept her car inside her garage at all times.

“To be honest I don’t feel safe to do that anymore,” she said.

“It used to be such a lovely area but you hear things and you see things on the news and the paranoia and fear grows. When the police knocked on my door this morning to tell me about what happened down the street I thought “here we go again.”

Comment: This is a political problem initiated by the political party duopoly. Until you start demanding these worthless thugs be deported or executed you will have to put up with the problem.

The political party corporations will not allow you, as the first respondent to protect yourself by any means. Cairns News suggests you join a rifle or pistol club, buy a shotgun and arm yourselves in readiness. There will be no worthwhile help from police or the judicial system under present arrangements.
