Olympics To Implant Microchips In Athletes? – The Race To Global Surveillance

Josh Sigurdson breaks down the most recent technocratic news as Mike Miller, Chief Executive of The World Olympics Association announces he wishes to have microchips (or RFID chips) implanted in Olympic athletes. The type of microchipping he is suggesting actually monitors an athlete’s bloodstream and sends the information to the authorities in charge. The excuse is to expose athletes using performance enhancing drugs. Miller says, “we’re a nation of dog lovers, we’re prepared to chip our dogs and it doesn’t seem to harm them, so why aren’t we prepared to chip ourselves?” The excuse is always to stop crime or for convenience. It’s always rather “convenient” for the state and not so much for the individuals chipped like cattle and their every move watched by big brother. The Olympics is highly state subsidized, so they can’t even use the excuse of being a private company with voluntary employees. There have been employees and travellers chipped in Sweden. Employees chipped in the United States. Hobbyists chipping themselves to pay for things and unlock their doors. It’s nothing short of insanity. This is just PART of a far larger technocratic push towards a world order that we’ve detailed in countless past reports. This regards government artificial intelligence, a centrally planned cashless system which we’ve seen popping up with retina scans in India, facial recognition in Australia, the cashless push in China and the same goes for Sweden. Then we have the cultural brainwashing of “convenience” in order to control the masses. Don’t think this story stops here. It’ll only continue to get crazier. Interestingly, this is the same topic independent media reporters talked about in the 90s and were called crazy. Well 1984 is here folks. Stay tuned for more from WAM! Video edited by Josh Sigurdson

Social Engineering: China wants to give all of its citizens a score – and their rating could affect every area of their lives

Main Source: Independent UK

Imagine a world where an authoritarian government monitors everything you do, amasses huge amounts of data on almost every interaction you make, and awards you a single score that measures how “trustworthy” you are.

In this world, anything from defaulting on a loan to criticising the ruling party, from running a red light to failing to care for your parents properly, could cause you to lose points. And in this world, your score becomes the ultimate truth of who you are – determining whether you can borrow money, get your children into the best schools or travel abroad; whether you get a room in a fancy hotel, a seat in a top restaurant – or even just get a date.

Why call it self-driving?

Would you put your trust into Autonomous car or self-driving car?

In this you tube video below about David Knight speaking about Autonomous car or self-driving car or robot cars call it what you like. Why the self-driving are not going to as safe would as thought?

For Me I’m not against Science and Technology and I’m not against Science and Technology. Like computer and electrical technology do have faults and flaws and do breakdown over time. So I would not put my trust into them. And would not buy any car that is self driving.

Government spying on us has not prevented one terrorist attack

The FBI tells us that its demand for a back door into the iPhone is all about fighting terrorism, and that it is essential to break in just this one time to find out more about the San Bernardino attack last December. Continue reading First They Came For the iPhones…

Kim Dotcom Addresses NZ PM in Parliament Arguing Against Extension of GCSB Powers (FULL SPEECH)

Kim Dotcom, whose extradition battle is continuing, spoke to Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Select Committee today — arguing against the extension of the GCSB’s powers.

“The new GCSB bill demands an expansion of spying powers. This is poorly timed,” he said.

Mr Dotcom received a formal apology from Prime Minister John Key after it was revealed the GCSB spied on him illegally. Addressing the committee, he called his fight “an injustice” and said he believed more New Zealanders had received the spy agency’s attention.

“I suspect the real scope of the spying by the GCSB is bigger than what we know today,” he said.

Mr Dotcom argued against the outsourcing of the agency’s powers, but Mr Key claimed it made sense and followed Mr Dotcom’s business model with MegaUpload.

“We cannot value human rights if we hand our information to a spy cloud.”

Mr Dotcom and associate Bram van der Kolk’s submission the proposed Bill was a “clear example of the type of state intelligence agency overreach”.

They went on to say spying on New Zealanders is unwarranted without safeguards and the proposed expansion of the GCSB aren’t justified. The submission says the passage of the Bill has been “unduly hasty”.

“We believe more time should be taken for public debate and inquiry before this Bill is passed.”

Earlier, former Green Party MP Keith Locke – who has previously claimed to have been spied upon by the Security Intelligence Service – told the select committee the GCSB spied on Chile and Mexico to help America in the lead-up to the Iraq War.

Mr Locke is arguing for more transparency from the Government’s spy agency.

“The Government can’t just continue to hide behind the smokescreen that I saw during the 12 years I was in Parliament,” he said.

Vikram Kumar, the former head of Internet New Zealand, knows the GCSB’s role well — having worked alongside the agency several times.

“I have been very impressed with their professionalism, with their hard work and with the constraints in which they operate,” he said, “Expanding the role of GCSB, particularly to economic well-being, is troubling.”

Mr Kumar says the reason behind this is the term “economic well-being” could refer to a number of things, and a shortage of skilled staff in New Zealand.

“The GCSB mindset is essentially a spying mindset, because that’s what they are […] and now we are trying to make them into a police mindset,” he said.

“We will be operating in an environment of suspicion, just as we see and in fact I’d say worse, than what we see in the US.”

Internet New Zealand’s Jordan Carter and Susan Chalmers spoke to the committee together. Mr Carter spoke of his concern any changes may have in the years to come.

“It needs to deal with people with less good motives and power in the future.”

Ms Chalmers was one of many submitters who spoke on the issue of metadata.

Metadata is data which provides information about one or more aspects of data. A common example is a digital photograph, which can show how large it is, when it was taken, where it was taken and other data.

“Metadata in many situations could actually be more revealing than the actual conversations themselves,” she said.

Happening Now: Authorities Are Using ‘Paris Attacks’ To Fast-Track New Mass Surveillance Laws

Date: 19 November 2015

PARIS LEGACY? Western society inches towards the elites’ ultimate goal of a unifying global fascist and authoritarian technocracy.

The CIA and government officials around the world are using the Paris attacks to push brand new surveillance laws. And it was all planned in advance.

While democratic systems usually take months (if not years) to pass new laws and legislation, it only took a few days after the Paris attacks to slap honest citizens with more surveillance laws. Several organizations are indeed capitalizing on the fear and panic caused by the attacks to bring forth a brand new agenda that takes a bold new step towards total government surveillance. What’s worse: Leaked information proves that authorities were waiting on a terror attack to go forward with their plan.

TPP revealed: Pact details ignite debate over privacy, internet freedom, whistleblowers

Date: 6 November 2015

With the release of the full text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a sharpening of arguments on both sides outline a debate about privacy, corporatism, internet freedom and intellectual property, and even the plight of whistleblowers.

The world got its first look at the international agreement between 12 Pacific Rim countries on Thursday, exactly one month after it was finalized on October 5. Given that the secret negotiations hammering out the pact had been ongoing since 2008, with details hard to come by, skeptics and critics had been expressing suspicions as to TPP’s true intentions and ultimate impact over the past couple years. Now they can finally stop speculating and have a look at the fine print. Continue reading TPP revealed: Pact details ignite debate over privacy, internet freedom, whistleblowers

Facebook wants you to spend all your time on Facebook

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has talked about bringing Facebook to more of people’s lives – or expanding the things you can do with its products.

There seems to be a lot going on at the big blue social network these days. A spate of headlines from the past several weeks have outlined some very ambitious plans: Facebook is building a real-time news tool that could kill Twitter. Facebook’s testing shopping products that could take on Amazon. Facebook’s making its own YouTube.

[Facebook tests another tool to get us to embrace social shopping]

On Friday, the company officially shared news on its video plans, saying that it’s testing “new video experiences” for its mobile and desktop versions. These include features on the site that will suggest related videos, let users multitask while watching video and save videos to watch for later. Per the blog post announcing the effort, Facebook is also launching a new, dedicated section on the social network just for videos: Continue reading Facebook’s plan to take over the web
