The Mother of All Privacy Battles Part 24 - Shutting Us Up

[T]he 85-page briefing, titled THE GOOD CENSOR admits that Google and other tech platforms now control the majority of “online conversations” and have undertaken a shift towards “censorship” in response to unwelcome political events around the world.
- Democracy Hollwed Out Part 35 - Censorship

We look at two cases before the Supreme Court that could reshape the future of the internet. Both cases focus on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, which backers say has helped foster free speech online by allowing companies to host content without direct legal liability for what users post. Critics say it has allowed tech platforms to avoid accountability for spreading harmful material. Critics say it has allowed tech platforms to avoid accountability for spreading harmful material. On Tuesday, the justices heard arguments in Gonzalez v. Google, brought by the family of Nohemi Gonzalez, who was killed in the 2015 Paris terror attack. Her family sued Google claiming the company had illegally promoted videos by the Islamic State, which carried out the Paris attack. On Wednesday, justices heard arguments in the case of Twitter v. Taamneh, brought by the family of Nawras Alassaf, who was killed along with 38 others in a 2017 terrorist attack on a nightclub in Turkey. We speak with Aaron Mackey, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who says Section 230 “powers the underlying architecture” of the internet.

The Supreme Court case that could fundamentally change the internet

By Jessisa Melugin
Washington Examiner
February 24, 2023

The Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in a case that could fundamentally alter social media.

GONZALES V. GOOGLE, heard by the justices on Feb. 21, asks the highest court in America to determine if the longtime internet liability shield known as a SECTION 230 includes content that the platforms algorithms recommend to users. And about how they present those recommendations.

The case stems from the killing of then-23-year-old Nohemi Gonzalez, who was studying in Paris when she became the only American victim of a terrorist attack that claimed 129 other lives in the city. The Islamic State later took responsibility for the acts.

Back in the United States, Gonzalezs family sued multiple tech platforms, accusing them of radicalizing users into terrorists by promoting pro-ISIS third-party content. Google’s YouTube video-sharing platform is the only defendant that remains, and that’s the case the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on. The case was paired with a similar suit, TWITTER V. TAAMNEH, which was heard the next day.

Both cases address the possible limits of the protection social media platforms have from liability under SECTION 230 OF THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS DECENCY ACT. The law, now commonly shortened to “Section 230,” clarified liability for online sites hosting third-party content at a time when there was uncertainty about their legal responsibility. Legal precedent dealt with traditional publishers, including newspapers, and distributors such as bookstores.

But the online hosts were different in that they were not filtering user content before it was posted, like a traditional publisher did, but only after it was posted, if at all. At the time, CompuServe’s chat board did not moderate posts at all and, because of the precedent in liability law, was therefore not legally responsible for the content it hosted.

A rival service, Prodigy, wanted to take down potentially offensive posts from its users in order to make a family-friendly online environment, but it worried that doing so would trigger legal liability. That’s because, in the past, bookstores were not held liable if they didn’t know of illegal content in the materials they were selling but were on the hook if they did know about it and carried it for sale anyway. Moderating content seemed to be an admission that they knew what they were hosting.

In practice, Section 230 means that host sites cannot be sued for content posted by their users and that taking down any of that content will not trigger liability for the platform. Legal responsibility stays with the creator of the content, not the online host.

Those same issues are at play, but they now apply to small sites and social media platforms with billions of users. More than 500 hours of third-party content is posted to YouTube every minute that’s 720,000 hours per day.

Google and other major social media platforms argue that the volume of hosting can only be maintained because of the legal protections Section 230 affords to them. Without it, the danger of legal expenses for a flood of litigation would cause sites to take down much more content (just to be safe) or to allow everything (so they could claim the old bookstores hands-off protections). That would make for an internet void of anything the least bit controversial or one polluted with violence, spam, and pornography, largely unusable for most people.

The plaintiff’s argument in the case has changed from its initial petition to the court. Legal counsel for the Gonzalez family at first presented the question of Section 230s safe harbor including third-party content when it was algorithmically recommended by the host site, arguing that it should not. But at this week’s oral argument, the Gonzalez family’s lawyer Eric Schnapper concentrated more on whether the thumbnail links in YouTube’s “up next” suggestion for the next video constitute content created by the host, instead of a third party, making them ineligible for Section 230’s protections.

During oral arguments, multiple justices volunteered that they were “confused” about what argument Schnapper was trying to make during their exchange. Chief Justice John Roberts clarified that the YouTube algorithm was the same across the platform and that nothing special was employed in the recommending of the ISIS content. Several justices expressed concerns about the resulting economic upset if the court were to rule in favor of curtailing Section 230s liability shield and exposing online platforms to increased litigation.

The oral arguments went on for almost three hours on Feb. 21, an unusually long amount of time for the justices to spend on a case. More than 70 briefs were filed in the Supreme Court, where interested parties, including other social media platforms, think tanks, and advocacy groups, weighed in on the case.

The court’s ruling could have profound and widespread implications for social media platforms and their users. But depending on how the court decides the aspects of the related Twitter case and its intersection with the Anti-Terrorism Act’s provisions for liability, the Supreme Court may be able to sidestep weighing in on the parameters of Section 230 altogether. America’s highest court is expected to rule on both cases in June.

Democracy Hollowed Out Part 44 - Florida’s WOKE Act

image: book woke inc

Along with the typical complaints about “pornographic” books, this latest wave of conservatives banning books is remarkable for their anger towards books by and about people of color, or by and about LGBTQ, especially trans people. Texas State Rep. Matt Krause, a Republican, released a list of about 850 books that he wanted to ban from school libraries. He claimed the books make students feel “discomfort” because of their content about race and sexuality.  An analysis of Krause’s list by The Dallas Morning News found that of the first 100 titles listed, 97 were written by women, people of color or LGBTQ authors. A common complaint is that these books will make children think about changing themselves, or teaches them “critical race theory. “
- Democracy Hollowed Out - Part 43 - Banning The Bible

What’s even worse are the social ramifications, such as critical race theory, which emphasizes the differences between race groups, creating actual race hatred. One consequence of the financial and economic upsets will be riots like those of 2020. The mass migration of people from alien cultures who don’t share Western values into the US and Europe is destabilizing. The US has, in fact, become a multicultural domestic empire.

Governor Ron DeSantis Signs Legislation to Protect Floridians from Discrimination and Woke Indoctrination

Florida Governor
April 22, 2022

HIALEAH GARDENS, Fla.  Today, Governor Ron DeSantis signed HOUSE BILL (HB) 7, to give businesses, employees, children and families tools to stand up against discrimination and woke indoctrination. The bill includes provisions to prevent discriminatory instruction in the workplace and in public schools and defines Individual freedoms based on the fundamental truth that all individuals are equal before the law and have inalienable rights. This legislation is the first of its kind in the nation to take on both corporate wokeness and Critical Race Theory in schools in one act. Read more HERE.

"No one should be instructed to feel as if they are not equal or shamed because of their race,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “In Florida, we will not let the far-left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces. There is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida.”

“By signing this legislation, which is the first in the nation to end corporate wokeness and Critical Race Theory in our schools, we are prioritizing education not indoctrination,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nunez. “We will always fight to protect our children and parents from this Marxist-inspired curriculum.”

“I am grateful that Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature have taken a stand against discrimination, especially against revisionist history and ideological concepts that are outside Florida’s academic standards,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran. “These dangerous concepts seek to divide Americans, rather than unite them. This legislation affirms that all students, no matter their backgrounds, should be treated as individuals with unique experiences, and that they should be afforded equal opportunities to find success and fulfillment. That’s why the Florida Department of Education is focused on ensuring our classrooms are teaching children how to think, not what to think.”

“Every person is created equal and entitled to their dignity as an individual. We have heard concerns that students and workers are being pushed to adopt the personal or political viewpoints of employers, teachers or textbook authors,” said Senate President Wilton Simpson. This bill protects our individual freedoms and prevents discrimination in public schools and the workplace while supporting factual, educational discussions for our students.”

Today, Florida took an important step to ensure that our schools and workplaces are spaces where we can have healthy instruction and conversation without losing sight that we are first and foremost individuals. Importantly, the bill provides assurance for parents that some of the most difficult lessons about our nationӒs history and current events are taught accurately while treating everyone as individuals, said House Speaker Chris Sprowls. ԓThanks to Speaker pro tempore Avilas great work carrying this bill and Governor DeSantis signing it into law today, FloridaҒs students and employees will be judged as individuals, by their words, character and actions, not simply by their race, sex or national origin.

ԓI want to thank Governor DeSantis for being the most anti-woke governor in our nation, said Senator Manny Diaz, Jr. ԓNo Floridian should ever be subjected to discriminatory content or rhetoric, especially when at school or in the workplace. Florida is committed to objectively teaching our students about important historical facts and events, not indoctrination.

“Critical Race Theory” takes people and segregates them against each other. Individualism is not exclusive for any race, and it is patronizing to say people have different work ethic based on their skin color, said Christopher Rufo, Senior Fellow and Director of the Initiative on Critical Race Theory, The Manhattan Institute. “We are in the initial stages down a dark path, but luckily community leaders have said not in this state, not in this country. I think it is a testament to the legislators in Florida and the greatest Governor in the country right now, standing up to these people. He stood up to the lies, he stood up to the ideologs and he stood up to the big corporations because he is on your side and he’s not going to back down.”

“I would like to extend my gratitude to the Governor for showing the people of Florida what a true statesman looks like,” said Alysha Legge, Mother, Hillsborough County. “You have been a true representative of the people, maintaining our individual liberties and our constitutional principles, not special interests or political ideologies. Can you imagine that my children, who are of various shades of melanin, being told that because they are of lighter skin, they are oppressors or because they are of darker skin, they are oppressed. What does that do to them mentally and emotionally? What does that do to us as a family?”

“There is only so much a great school can insulate, when required English Language Arts curriculum vocabulary textbooks mention racism and bias,” said Christine Chaparro, Mother, Broward County. “My kids were sent home with books that encourage them to research an anti-racism book. These benchmark textbooks are not accurate and not appropriate for public-school education. I have always been involved in my kids’ education, serving as room-mom and sitting on the PTA board, and I know my family isnt alone in looking for alternatives for our kids.”

“Governor DeSantis has again been bold and courageous,” said Quisha King, Mother. It is because of Governor DeSantis’ bold and courageous leadership that we do not have to hear these excuses that Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools because Governor DeSantis, Chris and all of the parents have been showing you evidence after evidence that this is real, and it is happening to our children. We do not want our children racially segregated and we do not want our children to be looked at through the lens of race. We have taught our kids our values that say do not judge us by the color of our skin, it is simple.

HB 7 protects civil rights in employment and K-20 education by specifying that subjecting an employee or student to a required activity that promotes, advances, or compels individuals to believe discriminatory concepts, constitutes unlawful discrimination.

Concepts constituting unlawful discrimination include:

· That members of one race, color, national origin or sex are morally superior to members of another race, color, national origin or sex.

· A person by virtue of their race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive.

· A person’s moral character or status as privileged or oppressed is determined by race, color, national origin or sex.

· A person, by virtue of their race, color, national origin or sex should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment to achieve diversity, equity or inclusion.

The bill also requires instruction, instructional materials, and professional development in public schools to adhere to principles of individual freedom outlined in the bill. Those principles include that no person is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive just by virtue of his or her race or sex and meritocracy or hard work ethic are not racist but fundamental to the right to pursue success.

The bill authorizes discussion of topics such as sexism, slavery, racial oppression, racial segregation, and racial discrimination, in an age-appropriate manner, and in such a way that does not indoctrinate or persuade students to a certain point of view that is inconsistent with the principles of individual freedom.

The bill also expands instruction of African American history to develop students’ understanding of the ramifications of prejudice and racism. Classroom instruction will educate students on what it means to be a respectful and responsible citizen and encourage tolerance of diversity to protect democratic principles that our country is founded on. Schools are required to teach factual information on topics including African American history and the Holocaust instead of subjective indoctrination that pushes collective guilt.

Pernell v. Florida Board of Governors

ACLU
January 12, 2023

On Thursday, August 18, 2022 the ACLU, ACLU of Florida, Legal Defense Fund and Ballard Spahr filed a lawsuit challenging Florida’s HB7 (aka the Stop W.O.K.E. Act) on behalf of a group of Florida educators and students in higher education.

The Stop W.O.K.E. Act is a classroom censorship law which severely restricts Florida educators and students from learning and talking about issues related to race and gender in higher education classrooms. Florida is one of nearly 20 states across the country that have passed similar laws aimed at censoring discussions around race and gender in the classroom.

The lawsuit argues the Stop W.O.K.E. Act violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments by imposing viewpoint-based restrictions on instructors and students in higher education that are vague and discriminatory. The complaint also argues that the law violates the Equal Protection Clause because it was enacted with a racially discriminatory purpose and will have a disparate impact on Black educators and students.

The groups are asking the court to declare the law unconstitutional under the First and 14th Amendments and are urging the court to issue a preliminary injunction that would put an immediate stop to the bill and allow students and educators to have full and open discussions around race and gender in the classroom.

UPDATE (11/17/22): In an important victory for educators and students’ rights to teach and learn free from censorship and discrimination, a federal judge issued an order that will immediately block Florida’s HB 7 from being enforced in higher education contexts.

Federal appeals court leaves DeSantis’ anti-’woke’ law blocked in Florida public colleges

By Jack Forrest
CNN
March 17, 2023

A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that a temporary block on a portion of a law pushed by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis restricting what can be taught in Floridas public colleges and universities will remain in place.

The three-judge panel of the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request from the DeSantis administration and officials with the state university system to stay an injunction from US District Judge Mark Walker, who called the law “positively dystopian” in a 138-page order, while the case plays out.

Last April, DeSantis signed into law Florida’s Individual Freedom Act, better known as the “Stop WOKE Act,” but it has faced a number of legal challenges since taking effect on July 1. The law is a key component of DeSantis’ WAR ON WOKE IDEAOLOGY, and was intended to prevent teachings or mandatory workplace activities that suggest a person is privileged or oppressed based necessarily on their race, color, sex or national origin.

With the law, Walker wrote in November that Florida “lays the cornerstone of its own Ministry of Truth under the guise of the Individual Freedom Act” - invoking George Orwell’s novel, “1984.”

“The Court did not rule on the merits of our appeal. The appeal is ongoing, and we remain confident that the law is constitutional,” DeSantisԒ spokesman Bryan Griffin said in a statement.

The Legal Defense Fund, which represented the plaintiffs in the case, celebrated the decision.

“Institutions of higher education in Florida should have the ability to provide a quality education, which simply cannot happen when students and educators, including Black students and educators, feel they cannot speak freely about their lived experiences, or when they feel that they may incur a politician’s wrath for engaging in a fact-based discussion of our history,” Alexsis Johnson, assistant counsel of The Legal Defense Fund, said in a statement.

Opponents of the law are fighting it on three fronts: the law’s effects on K-12, higher education and employers.

Last August, Walker granted an injunction filed by two Florida-based employers, who wanted to require diversity and inclusion trainings for staff, and a consultant who provides such training. Walker at the time called the law “upside down” when it comes to the First Amendment because it allows the state to burden freedom of speech.

Florida Board of Education approves controversial standards for teaching Black history

By Sarah Fortinsky
The Hill
July 19, 2023

Florida’s Board of Education approved new rules for teaching Black history in the state Wednesday, prompting immediate backlash from critics who describe the updated standards as “a big step backward.”

The new GUIDELINES come after the state passed a controversial education law, which required lessons on race be taught in an “objective” manner that does not seek to “indoctrinate or persuade students to a particular point of view.” The state also PROHIBITED a pilot Advanced Placement high school course on African American studies in early 2023, saying it violated state law and “lacks educational value.”

The updated standards on African American history instruction include “benchmark clarifications” to provide additional guidance to teachers on specific topics for instruction. One updated standard that has, in particular, come under fire directs teachers to include instruction on “how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit.”

Another “benchmark clarification” under increased scrutiny directs teachers to include instruction on “acts of violence perpetrated against and by African Americans” when teaching about the growth and destruction of Black communities during Reconstruction and beyond. Among the examples listed as an act of violence was the 1920 Ocoee Massacre, when dozens of African Americans were killed when they went to vote.

The Florida Education Association, the statewide teachers union, slammed these standards and others in a statement issued Wednesday as “a big step backward.”

“The Florida State Board of Education today adopted new African American history standards. In doing so, they confirmed many of the worst fears educators had when the STOP WOKE ACT was signed into law last year,Ԕ the press release said, referring to the controversial education law. “These new standards are a disservice to Florida’s students and are a big step backward for a state that has required teaching African American history since 1994.”

The president of the association, Andrew Spar, said in the press release, “How can our students ever be equipped for the future if they don’t have a full, honest picture of where we’ve come from? Florida’s students deserve a world-class education that equips them to be successful adults who can help heal our nation’s divisions rather than deepen them.”

“Gov. [Ron] DeSantis is pursuing a political agenda guaranteed to set good people against one another, and in the process he’s cheating our kids. They deserve the full truth of American history, the good and the bad,” he added.

The meeting Wednesday grew contentious, as many community leaders spoke and requested the board to table the proposed standards until they could be revised. Some of the new rules proposed were also aimed at LGBTQ students and educators. The standards were REPORTEDLY adopted, with no discussion.

State Sen. Geraldine Thompson (D) reportedly spoke at the meeting Wednesday. She helped pass a law requiring teachers to instruct about the Ocoee Massacre, which was listed among the “acts of violence perpetrated against and by African Americans,” in the updated standards.

Thompson reportedly said the new standards “suggests that the massacre was sparked by violence from African Americans. Thats blaming the victims.”

NWO - The Collapse of Everything

image: the new world order

As physiology, the science of life, has proven many times, all things, when driven to the limits of excess and beyond - will collapse. History is living proof. Empires of the past disappeared because of greed for power and possession had no limits.

IT LOOKS LIKE we are reaching this point now quickly. This time on a worldwide basis. The western empire, led by Anglosaxonia, is intent on becoming a globalist One World Order (OWO). For that purpose, Mother Earth is literally being weaponized.

This is clearly ignoring the limits of reason, the limits of nature it enters the realm of criminal excesses and beyond. Those who respect no limits, drive the limits of reason further and further into the field of excesses, are accelerating the process of collapse. But they don’t know it. They are drunk by their exuberance of limitless arrogance and accumulation of power and goods.

Technology that could be used for the good of mankind is in the hands of a diabolical clan. You may call it the “Death Cult”. In the past, empires had control over limited areas within parts of the world, expanding them, their intent of limitless expansion reached the level of Excesses and eventually their collapse. The Roman Empire is a typical example.

Today, control over 193 UN member states (194 for WHO) has been prepared for maybe as long as 100 years or more. What used to be the United Nations (UN), the purveyor of peace, has been compromised and corrupted by those in power. We are talking about invisible corporate finance and people, way above the WEF, WHO, FED, the European Union, the entire UN system - with unfathomable and ill-gotten wealth that can “buy”, blackmail or “else”, literally everything, at their will.

The End of Excesses. The Collapse of Everything

By Peter Koenig
Global Research
February 20, 2023

Excessive greed, controlling “War and Peace”, creating “Killing Fields” is reaching a breaking point.

The commanding masters may appear shiny and legal, when visible, but are dark and sinister, when underground.

A reminder of this cult may be the lyrics of the 1977 Eagles song, “Hotel California”. See/listen to THIS.

The UN has become subordinate to the World Economic Forum, in fact it executes the WEF’s orders and is slated to become the de facto “puppet” government in a potentially new One World Order (OWO. “Potentially” is the operative word. There is still time for Us, the People, to renege.

There is time to start afresh - yes, exit the current system, the matrix, and start on a clean slate, following the principles of German-born British economist, Ernst Friedrich Schumacher, “Small is Beautiful”.

Essentially it means in today’s world:

“local production for local consumption, with local money, administered by local public banking systems - and trading to the extent possible with neighboring and / or likeminded societies.”

What Henry Kissinger said some 50 years ago is today more valid than ever:

“Who controls the food supply, controls the people; who controls the energy, can control whole continents; who controls money, can control the world.”

Today you may add:

“Who controls the weather and climate, controls the entire Planet Earth, people, food, energy, money and Nature.”

We have reached this Excess moment, where the powers that be may control the weather and call it climate change, so that people continue believing that they are responsible with their environmental footprint - “man-made fossil fuel-based CO2 emissions” - of ruining Mother Earth.

Therefore, they must be punished, with absolute control, with “sanctioning”, say, punishment if they do not behave according to an imposed set of values of the New World Order (NOW - identical to OWO).

“Absolute technologies” with no limits to excesses have been quietly developed over the past 50 to 100 years or more, while we were asleep or duped to believe that climate change will wipe us out if we do not abandon the use of hydrocarbons; almost the only source of energy (close to 90%) that has allowed humankind to develop, to industrialize, to overall improve our standard of living but also to accumulate insane riches - excesses beyond reason.

Excesses today at the breaking point; a collapse or collapses are imminent.

Putting hydrocarbons (oil, gas and coal) into context - today they still provide the basis for about 85% of all energy used, not much different from some 20 to 30 years ago when they accounted for about 90% of total energy use. Yet, with this “dirty” energy, man-made CO2 amounts to less than 0.5% of all CO2 - most of CO2 is emitted by the seas and the soil.

CO2 is a vital gas, without it, no life exists on earth. CO2 is absorbed by plants, by rain forests around the globe - which, in turn, release oxygen, the lifeblood of all sentient beings. By excessive and corrupted media power, our compromised western governments dupe us into believing otherwise.

Back to “absolute technologies”, HAARP is one of them. We are referring to Environmental Modification Techniques. HAARP stands for High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program. (closed down in Gakona Alaska, 2014, possibly transferred to another location).

Not only can these Environmental Modification Techniques (eg. HAARP) produce deadly hurricanes, freezing winters, dry and crop destroying heat waves and similarly excessively flooding - all destructive rains, but HAARP can also produce fatal all-devastating earthquakes.

While THERE IS NO SOLID PROOF, the issue must be raised: Were Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD) (eg. HAARP) applied in the recent Turkey-Syria earthquake that hit south-eastern Turkey, close to the Syrian border, in the early morning hours of 6 February 2023, with three major shockwaves within less than 12 hours - main tremor of 7.8 Richter, followed by 6.5 and 7.5 quakes. As of this writing, more than 36,000 people died, and more than 500,000 were injured. See THIS for more details.

HAARP technology might also be used to melt polar ice and flood continents to an unrecognizable level of destruction of life, infrastructure, food everything. See THIS from TeleSUR.

It is the WEF’s, Globalists’ and UN Agendas 2030 unabashed plan to abolish the old and rebuild a new world with a vastly reduced World population towards a neo-fascist system of “Global Governance”, where other than the reigning elite, survivors own nothing but are happy.

Such “excesses” may be technically possible but will not materialize.

The excesses of control and obedience - obeying would not stop by following orders, but YOUR THOUGHTS are not allowed to sway from the GIVEN PRINCIPLES - no freedom of thought. No aspiration of freedom

MIND CONTROL technology has existed for MANY YEARS. It was a DARPA-developed program, also called “MK-Ultra”. DARPA is a semi-secret Pentagon think-tank. It stands for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Mind control was discussed in a special session at the 2023 WEF in Davos. But the discussion went way beyond mind-control. Duke University Professor Nita Farahany discussed and described the current state of MIND-MONITORING technology.

The WEF and its masters foresee a future where people’s thoughts can be controlled and depending on how they fit into the Matrix’s dictate, the bearer of “unacceptable” thoughts may be punished. See THIS.

These are excesses beyond tolerance of the master mind of life science, or physiology.

They will not come to fruition but its important to know that apparently technology for such excesses exist.

The unbelievable excesses of America waging war against her closest ally, Europe. America is at war with Europe - see THIS.

At the outset, Europe is America’s closest ally, but also her most powerful vassal - 450 million people, as compared to the 330,000 US inhabitants; and a GDP that threatens to overtake the faltering US economy.

To combat this for decades lingering and growing threat to the US of A, the European economy must be destroyed. And it is happening with the full participation of the European governments, to the detriment of the European people and most of these people are still under the illusion their governments are trustworthy and would never do what they are doing - help America destroy their livelihoods.

In amazing detail, US journalist Seymour Hersh describes - based on insider information - How America Took Out the Nord Stream Pipeline which happened in September 2022; about seven months after the start of Russia’s Special Operation in Ukraine, after at least eight years of endless NATO and EU provocation. See this.

Supposedly this act of state terror, or outright Act of War, was a reaction to what in the western mainstream lie-jargon is called the Russian invasion of Ukraine and was meant to punish Russia by preventing them from further selling “cheap” gas to Europe, thus fueling Europe’s competitive economy.

image: nordstream pipelines

But Hershs account omits some important details. Ordered by Washington, Germany had canceled finalizing Nord Stream Pipeline 2 way before the undersea gas-ducts were blown up. At that time, international gas prices rose by 8%, since the world at large was thirsty for the now “freed” Russian gas. So, Russia had no shortage of demand.

On the other hand, Europe, whose economy depends up to 40% on Russian gas, was set de facto on a course of massive de-industrialization. Sort of an economic suicide? Yes, indeed, and this is because it happened with full knowledge of the EU leadership (sic).

This “leadership” almost throughout all EU countries consists of scholars from Klaus Schwab’s Young Global Leaders (YGL) “Academy”:

“We are proud having been able to infiltrate with our YGLs governments around the world”, Klaus Schwab’s recent words.

German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, also a Schwab scholar, knew way in advance about the planned blow-up of the Nord Stream Pipelines.

In fact he was in Washington on an official visit to the US in early February, 2022, when President Biden made the announcement at a Press Conference that a sabotage was envisaged. That decision was formally endorsed by Chancellor Scholz:

“As I’ve already said [Scholz], we are acting together, we are absolutely united, and we will not be taking different steps.  We will do the same steps”

What happened in Washington WAS A:

“a de facto “bilateral understanding” between U.S. President Biden and Germany’s Chancellor Scholz reached in Washington on February 7, 2022 to proceed with the act of sabotage of Nord Stream 2.”

And so did Ursula von der Leyen, unelected President of the EU Commission in Brussels, who is also a member of the WEFs Board of Trustees.

Scholz, von der Leyen, and most likely more EU key politicians, gave their consent to Washington’s Nord Stream 1 and 2 destruction. But it was not brought to the attention of German and EU citizens.

Why not?

And why did Sy Hersh not mention it in his otherwise well-covered article? The integrity of Scholz, von der Leyen et al? was not questioned.

See the carefully documented ANALYSIS AND CRITIQUE BY MIKE WHITNEY.

The Participation of Europe’s “Classe Politique” in this crime against people is beyond words.

The falsehood of Europe, of European politicians has no name.

Their collective and constant lying and betrayal of half a billion people, plus an economy that is linked to another 2.5 3 billion people, thus affecting the lives of these people, is way beyond anything that could simply be called betrayal.

Will these horrendous “excesses” ever be punished?

The collapse of the western system may be the punishment.

And the innocent European people, who will suffer?

Are they really so innocent?

Haven’t they known all along that SOMETHING IS WRONG, that they are being cheated?

But out of comfort and for the love of easy life they have let it go - ever more and more?

The size of this monstrosity may be way beyond conventional punishment but falls into the category of those seemingly boundless excesses, that may help trigger a collapse.

A system’s collapse in favor of the people?

In favor of the people, only if, We the People, finally grab the opportunity as awakened, responsible humans to carry our history forward in an ascent to a higher consciousness. A new beginning, but not a la WEF-Reset, but rather waking up to the “new” reality of people-betraying governments around the globe, an awakening to the threatening tyranny envisaged by these governments, led by the WEF and its masters, to enslave us all.

We can still stop it.

By not playing along; by starting alternative societies, a la “Small is Beautiful” - see above.

There are the tremendous Covid excesses

A fear-farse prepared well in advance, already in the making for at least half a century, described in the 2010 Rockefeller Report with the first phase called “The Lockstep Scenario”, followed by many secret preparatory meetings under the wings of WHO; then the Event 201, of October 2019 in NYC - a desktop simulation of the corona “outbreak” that was to follow a couple of months later.

Worldwide, all 193 UN member countries (194 WHO), simultaneously were ordered in lockstep - to the detriment of a fear-trembling world population - into lockdowns, mask wearing, social distancing. There was no way out, as the entire world was under the spell of the Death Cult.

The fake Covid plague was followed by an equally false but deadly mRNA, DNA-altering vaxx drive, an experimental craze of utter submission, blackmail, coercion and the severest punishment for those who opted out. Discrimination, Apartheid style - the non-vaxxed were not allowed to enter restaurants, theatres and public spaces in general.

Worldwide about 70% of population were vaxxed different types of experimental injections, with different injury and death results, including aggressive cancers attacking reproductive organs, infertility, massive birthrate reduction, myocarditis, heart failures and sudden deaths.

A perfect depopulation agenda. As of today, many people do not see it, or do not want to see it, out of fear, or simply as denial of their own failure of ignoring the writing on the wall?

Today, hardly two years into the vaxx drive most western countries see massive excess death statistics. In 2020, the first year of propagated “heavy outbreaks” of Covid, death statistics were not only stable, but in some countries, they were lower than in 2017, a year of severe flu.

By 2022, the second year into vaccination, excess deaths on account of the toxic jabs are amounting from 15% to 25% per country, or more. According to Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Pfizer VP and Chief Science Officer, this is only the beginning. Heavy dying may occur 3-5 years into vaxxing, or between 5 to 10 years after receiving up to 3 or 4 boosters, each one drastically reducing human immunity.

So, vaxxed people will become vulnerable to many diseases which would have been discarded with a well-functioning immune system.

These excesses of biblical proportions have brought about a worldwide economic collapse [ differing between the global north and the global south, leading to poverty, famine, diseases and death.

The US / NATO / Ukraine War against Russia - is so full of Excesses and western political lies - the world has not experienced since at least the onset of WWI in 1914, when a war against Germany was promoted “to make the world safe and ready for Democracy”, when in reality WWI was to save the collapsing US banking system, and to have Germany fight against Russia, then as now, the worlds by far largest and resources richest country, riches the west coveted then as now, for its unabashed profit-driven ғdevelopment, serving then as now an exquisite self-nominated elite, mostly linked to banking.

Today, since 24 February 2022, the US and her European vassals and NATO are fighting a proxy war against Russia for the same reasons as the impetus of WW I and WW II - fracturing the huge Russian landmass for control and for grabbing RussiaԒs resources.

The amounts of money and weapons sent to the corrupt Ukrainian leader, Zelenskyy, is insane. In total as of last count some US$ 115 billion equivalent in less than a year, equal to about a third of Ukraines GDP in 2022 (US$ 347 billion). More than two thirds of the funds - so called budget support? - and weaponry comes from the US, the rest mostly from Europe and other countries of the Anglo-saxon Empire.

Most of the “transfers” flow right back into the accounts of the US Military Industrial Complex - and corrupt politicians, on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ukraine - arguably one of the world’s most corrupt countries - has neither the capacity to absorb the money or to use the weaponry since there are no trained military personnel to operate them. So, easily two thirds if not more, of all the weapons delivered to Ukraine end up on the black market. All the “allies” of this nonsensical, criminal killing exercise know it. Yet, they continue this absurd war game to the detriment of the Ukrainian people, pushing to the brink of risking a potentially nuclear World War.

There are absolutely no criteria, no targets, no strategies, for these weapon deliveries, none whatsoever. They are supplied, while the Ukrainian people are killed in masses - not by Russian military, because President Putin is applying an ethical principle: Avoid destroying Ukrainian lives and infrastructure to the extent possible - but by their own Ukrainian army, so they can blame the annihilation and deaths on Russia, as Zelenskyy knows, that’s what the western media are reporting.

Those who are not killed by weapons, or famine, or disease, are suffering untold misery, and / or flee their homeland, for Russia and western Europe. The Ukrainian population in 2021 was about 44 million. Today’s estimates range from 35 to 37 million.

Still, the west continues to propagate hatred against Russia, make the rest of the world believe that “evil Putin” will soon succumb.

Nothing could be farther from the truth, yet the propaganda and lie-western-media keep bulldozing the same fake news into western minds.

For an accurate and strategic account of THE SITUATION in Ukraine, see this sobering interview with (former) US Col. Douglas MacGregor.

These unforgiven excesses will, no doubt, backfire.

Just in, on 14 February 2023…

An act of ecological terrorism has been carried out in Ohio, USA as “authorities” set fire to as many as ten derailed train cars carrying highly toxic vinyl chloride (and other chemicals), unleashing a massive plume of chemical-laden smoke that exploded into the skies and spread for hundreds of square miles.

The mainstream media up to now provides little coverage of the “incidence,” or rather act of terror. They call it a ԓcontrolled burn which is absurd. No professional chemist would put highly toxic chemicals on fire in an open field and disperse the byproducts of combustion into the skies, thereby setting off a chemical gas bomb.

The spinoff of this combustion includes hydrogen chloride, which almost instantly connects to water molecules from the humidity in the atmosphere, creating Hydrochloric Acid (HCl), a highly toxic acid that burns lungs, flesh and even fish gills when absorbed into water. A mass kill event affecting fish, wildlife, chickens and pets is being reported by citizens in the area.

Todays world of absurd and untenable excesses

It is PART OF PLANNED and “legalized” LAWLESSNESS - of which most of the worldҒs population is not aware of.

In preparation of the Great Reset and Agenda 2030 - the atrocities that need to be committed during this awful decade, called by WHO the Decade of the Vaccinations - most western countries have quietly abandoned their nation-state status of Republics and registered themselves as Corporations.

As corporations, their countries’ Constitutions and all the laws within the Constitutional framework do no longer apply. Thats why they can do what they do; that’s why no court of law will accept any claim against their crimes, and thats why they get away with murder, literally.

It’s hard to believe but see this brilliant master talk video (43 min. on Kla.TV), by Dr. Astrid Stueckelberger, former WHO scientist, who talks about the planned WHO health tyranny and other matters. At about minute 8 into the video, Dr. Stueckelberger mentions the corporatization of western countries.

Watch Below. It is more than well-worth listening to the entire, extremely interesting and revealing video.

Going back to the beginning - physiology - the science of life - is a dynamic living process, constantly moving irrespective of linear inputs and planned projections.

A cardinal rule of physiology is to protect life as miniscule as microbes and as gigantic as Mother Earth herself.

Therefore, excesses, the way described above - and there are multitudes more going on, as these lines are written - will naturally lead to a collapse of the system - for lifes and Mother Earth’s self-preservation.

Net Neutrality 2023

image: net neutrality

Net Neutrality keeps the internet free and open enabling anyone to share and access information of their choosing without interference.

But on Dec. 14, 2017, the FCC voted along party lines to pass Chairman Pais plan to dismantle the Net Neutrality rules.

Without these rules, companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon will be able to block or slow down any online content including political speech they disagree with. This will disproportionately harm people of color and other marginalized communities who use the internet to fight systemic discrimination and share their stories.

Net Neutrality is essential to education, economic opportunity, innovation, social movements and dissent. Without Net Neutrality thereҒs no way to organize for justice or power the resistance.

New Academic Research Challenges Broadband Internet Rules

By Roslyn Layton, Senior Contributor, International Tech Policy
Forbes
February 16, 2023

A series of new academic papers in game theory, economics, and antitrust examine the empirical impact of “net neutrality” or “open internet” rules. This comes as many nations review the efficacy of policies purported to protect consumers and innovation, but unwittingly seem to strengthen established technology platforms as the expense of startups. The emergence of such research is likely helpful to the United Kingdom but will be ignored, if not dismissed, in the European Union. The US, South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand offer important examples of countries which flourish without heavy hand net neutrality rules.

Many policymakers claim that they want to use the best academic evidence to inform legislation and rules; its another matter to do it. Having the right data but failing to use it for political reasons is a central thesis of Pferrer and SuttonҒs The Knowing-Doing Gap: How Smart Companies Turn Knowledge into Action (2000), a classic in industrial behavior.

Game Theory

In THE PARADOX OF (INTER) NET NEUTRALITY: AN EXPERIMENT ON EX-ANTE ANTITRUST REGULATION, researchers at the University of Valencia in Spain Irene Comeig, Klaudijo Klaser, and Luca Pinar conducted an economic experiment based on an extended version of the dictator game controlling for the effect of an ex-ante regulation and punishments for collusive behavior. They conclude, Big Tech companies, sheltered by the net neutrality policy, have flourished. They now have the power to exclude minor companies, and therefore their contents, from the Internet market in de facto defiance of the net neutrality principle.” They suggest that policymakers revise net neutrality rules given the asymmetric Internet market structure.

Economics

To study the impact of regulation across studies, longitudinal studies, repeated observations of the same variables over long periods of time, are important. Indeed the most significant and comprehensive to date has been conducted by Wolfgang Briglauer, Carlo Cambini, Klaus Gugler,and Volker Stocker in NET NEUTRALITY AND HIGH-SPEED BROADBAND NETWORKS: EVIDENCE FREOM OECD COUNTRIES. They offer the definitive investigation of the impact of net neutrality rules to investement in fixed line, high speed broadband networks from 2000-2021 years in 32 countries. Using various panel estimation techniques, including instrumental variables estimation, they find empirical evidence that net neutrality regulations exert a significant negative impact on fiber investments. The conclude that so-called hard net neutrality regulations slow down the deployment of new fiber-based broadband connections.

I made a similar conclusion in my DOCTORAL RESEARCH investing the impact of net neutrality to app innovation on mobile networks in 50 countries. Essentially countries dont need hard rules to get innovation. Soft rules like guidelines, self-regulation, and multi-stakeholder models are sufficient to promote innovation (think South Korea and Japan). Moreover countries with no such rules, Australia and New Zealand, are innovative in the gaming space among others.

In a chapter on net neutrality and Covid-19 in the USA co-authored with Mark Jamison in the forthcoming BEYOND THE PANDEMIC: EXPLORING THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON TELECOMMUNICATIONS AND THE INTERNET edited by Jason Whalley, Volker Stocker, and William Lehr, we find no regulatory reports of net neutrality violations in 2020 (broadband providers blocking, throttling or harming end users or content violations) when millions of Americans were locked down in their home, dependent on broadband for work, education, and healthcare. Notably the US, which rejected the price and traffic controls of the 2015 Open Internet Order after 2 years, has since enjoyed significantly increased network investments, growing competition, advanced network technology, increasing broadband speeds, and a narrowing of the digital divide.

My REPORT on the United Kingdom documents how the net neutrality regulation blocked children and students from free learning online during the pandemic; costs the economy at least 340 million per year (not an insignificant amount when there is a 25 billion gap to reach investment for full 5G rollout); and appears to have reduced the UK’s rank the production of internet applications as measured by market value relative to 2015. UKs telecom regulator Ofcom observes that the rules aren’t working to improve consumer outcomes or broadband investment, and thus modernization is needed.

Antitrust

Antitrust is an important frontier for internet regulation. The concept of platform neutrality which suggests that the same non-discrimination requirements placed on broadband providers need to be extended to the largest players, as Marsden and Brown argue in “App stores, antitrust and their links to net neutrality: A review of the European policy and academic debate leading to the EU Digital Markets Act.” Similarly Winston Maxwell argues for reasonable traffic management on social media platforms.

Leading antitrust scholar Oles Andriychuk offers a holistic perspective on managing the ecosystem. In (WHY) DID EU NET NEUTRALITY MARKS OVERSHOOT THE MARK? Internet, Disruptive Innovation and EU Competition Law & Policy he observes that soft rules are capable to deliver positive outcomes without causing hard rule problems, noting EU broadband providers are preventing from disruptive innovations. Meanwhile some content/application providers can monopolise markets, resulting in dominant positions which are sometimes abused.

In the provocative DO SUBSCRIOBERS OF MOBILE NETWORKS CARE ABOUT NETWORK NEUTRALITY?, Bauer and Espin suggest that the regulations are irrelevant, as end users dont change their their behavior when faced with throttled data rates in competitive markets.

Biden Just Signed “The Declaration of North America.”
One North American Country?

By Jeff Thompson
The Organic Prepper
January 26, 2023

On January 10 of this year, Biden met with Trudeau and the president of Mexico at the 10th North American “Leaders” Summit. While there, Biden signed the Declaration of North America. Here is what was inside it.

This is verbatim text, as found at INTERNET ARCHIVES. Our comments are below each segment.

Today, President Andres Manuel Lpez Obrador, President Joseph R. Biden, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met in Mexico City for the 10th North American Leaders’ Summit (NALS). The leaders are determined to fortify our regions security, prosperity, sustainability and inclusiveness through commitments across six pillars: 1) diversity, equity, and inclusion; 2) climate change and the environment; 3) competitiveness; 4) migration and development; 5) health; and 6) regional security.

Right off the bat, you know that this documentmeans trouble. Every American is fully aware of the woke concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how that plays out in their daily lives - discrimination against them. Climate change is being used to push through global tyranny. This sets the stage for what is to follow.

North America shares a unique history and culture that emphasizes innovation, equitable development, and mutually beneficial trade to create inclusive economic opportunities for the benefit of our people. We are not just neighbors and partners. Our people share bonds of family and friendship and value above all else ֖ freedom, justice, human rights, equality, and democracy. This is the North American DNA.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion is foundational to the strength, vibrancy, and resilience of our countries. We focus on providing marginalized communities opportunities for their full, equal, and meaningful participation in our democracies and economies. To advance these objectives, President Lopez Obrador, President Biden, and Prime Minister Trudeau reiterated their joint commitment to protect civil rights, promote racial justice, expand protections for LGBTQI individuals and deliver more equitable outcomes to all.

Providing “marginalized communities” with anything means that your money as an American taxpayer is going to be stolen from you and given to them. This is Robin Hood idealism. It doesn’t matter if a thief steals what you have to give to somebody else. It’s still theft. We are already seeing what their idea of “meaningful” participation in our democracies (should read: “republic") is. It typically involves children.

When we talk about “expanded protections”, what rights are currently denied to these people?  Absolutely none. This simply means there is going to be more legislation coming down the line that will make it a hate crime, or something of the sort, to object to kids at schools having pornographic homework.

And as far as promoting “racial justice” goes, there are still piles of ashes left over from 2020 when businesses were burned to the ground IN THE NAME OF RACIAL JUSTICE.
