Also note there is no such thing as 100% security today. If "they" really want to find an individual they likely will. If "they" really want to see what you are doing, they likely will be able to with enough manpower put to use.

The goal is to make this as difficult as possible for "them", and there are ways to make it very difficult. You can spoof metadata, there are tools to do it. You can spoof your MAC address and IP address. You can use disc encryption and use forward secrecy. You can use fake aliases. You can route into other obscure encrypted decentralized networks. All of this is possible with the right know how and tools.

The goal should be obfuscating as much data as possible while online, encrypting as much as possible and erasing your tracks as much as possible. And using alternative platforms when needed.

I hear you loud and clear, but that's just not a real counter argument really, it's just your opinion towards specific people which you generalize, categorize, and label for your own comfort. Just because some guy online says one thing doesn't mean they have no opinion about other things, they just didn't bother sharing said opinions publicly or perhaps they already had through other means, nobody knows, and you sure can't claim to know either. Stop demonizing everyone, just accept what's true and don't self victimize about issues that people didn't even mention. Getting triggered about what people didn't say is a bad habit of complaining too much online, and you truly don't know those you accuse without substantial evidence just as they don't know you, arguing ignorantly about off topic shit that doesn't even matter. Grow up, don't associate me with your stereotype either, it's called being an individual with their own priorities, experience, thoughts, etc. Those that seek something needs to enlighten themselves in whatever subject before looking for like minded peers better than you to help you get better, but nobody is entitled to help, especially those that complain about free anonymous "help"/criticism. Count your blessings.

Border Wall Prototypes Thwart US Commandos in Tests Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 20:41:01 Id: ed2660 [Preview] No. 5602 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5204

Recent assaults by tactical teams on prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed wall with Mexico indicate their imposing heights should stop border crossers, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the rigorous assessment told The Associated Press.

Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools and climbing devices, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not authorized for public release.

A Customs and Border Protection report on the tests identifies strengths and flaws of each design but does not pick an overall winner or rank them, though it does point to see-through steel barriers topped by concrete as the best overall design, the official said.

The report recommends combining elements of each, depending on the terrain. The official likened it to a Lego design, pulling pieces from different prototypes.

Carlos Diaz, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, said the agency is still in “the testing phase” and that results are being evaluated. He said combining elements of different prototypes instead of picking a winner is consistent with previous statements by officials. He noted that the agency said in its bidding guidelines that a minimum height of 18 feet (5.4 meters) would be a key characteristic. He said he did not have additional details on test results.

Contractors were awarded between $300,000 and $500,000 for each prototype. Prototypes were built last fall to guide future construction of one of Trump’s signature campaign pledges. Four were concrete and four were made of other materials.

Ronald Vitiello, the agency’s acting deputy commissioner, said after visiting the prototypes in October that he was struck most by the 30-foot (9.1-meter) heights, which are significantly higher than existing barriers. Taller barriers are undoubtedly more effective, but whether the cost is justified will be up for debate.

The highly trained testers scaled 16 to 20 feet (4.9 to 6.1 meters) unassisted but needed help after that, said the official who described the assaults on the wall prototypes to the AP. Testers also expressed safety concerns about getting down from 30 feet.

Can fix the tunnel problem the same way we fixed it in elsewhere, smoke them out and blow shit up. Parachutists and other aerial methods can be taken out with the average weapon equipped drone, which we already have a shitload of in the middle east. Surely we could spare a few to patrol the border?

In many articles posted regarding this wall, you would realize that the doundations are deeply embedded into the ground, to prevent people from easily tunneling under.

Sure, if some State-run organization or kingpin mafia wanted to take a truck load of C4 and start blowing massive holes deep into the ground they may be able to pull it off. However, with the right amount of border patrol they would catch on quickly. Especially if there were censors being used alongside the walls for detection (censoring tech is very cheap to the government, typically subsidized as well).

And parachutists? You have got to be kidding me. How many Mexicans have enough money to afford to rent aviation and parachute themselves over the fucking wall!? Are you out of your mind!?

For the little bit of construction I've done, the mexicans (on average) always work less hard than the whites, and their work (again on average) is always lower quality, so I'm more confident in the wall than I am not confident in it. Time will tell, and it's better than the joke of a fence we had before.



LEAKED! Twitter Working With Foreign Governments To Censor Users Too Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 02:37:12 Id: 6bde2f [Preview] No. 5583 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A new undercover Project Veritas video includes a former Twitter software engineer claiming Twitter bans “a lot” of users for the Chinese government, otherwise the company allegedly faces hacking attempts by the government.

https://hooktube.com/watch?v=SMU4SZ_Cims

During a December meeting with an undercover Project Veritas reporter, former engineer Conrado Miranda originally refused to answer when asked whether the Chinese government makes requests.

“So does the Chinese government or anybody, like, do you think they call Twitter and be, like, you need to ban anyone that’s on Twitter that’s from China? Do they do that?” asked the reporter, prompting Miranda to reply with a smirk, “I cannot disclose that information.”

In a January meeting, however, Miranda admitted that the company works with the Chinese government to censor users.

“Say if someone in Iran calls and is, like, hey, in our country we need these people banned so that they’re not seen…” asked the reporter, before Miranda promptly responded, “Yeah.”

“That happens?” the reporter replied.

“Yeah. We do that a lot for China,” Miranda claimed. He added,”we are actually under constant attack from the Chinese. Like, both Chinese hackers, like, ‘good guys’ and from the Chinese government.”

Twitter and other social media is good to get the word out about corruption, however to avoid being banned or censored you have to create dozens of alias accounts per day and keep changing them up.

Using a static account is pretty much futile unless you happen to be a normfag who talks about sports, celebrity gossip or the latest fashion fad. That they don't give a flying crap about.

There was a good activist page that told people how to create their own "bot" accounts, wish I could find it. Basically use fake aliases (or fake names) and show pictures of cats, dogs or pretty ladies. Throw in some fake personal info, use a VPN at all times, and start spreading info. Then switch to another account and repeat... over and over and over again.



"Worse Than Watergate" FISA Abuse by Senior Govt Officials Leaks To Congress, FBI May Have Paid for Fake Dossier Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 21:12:39 Id: 2d8972 [Preview] No. 5604 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a “shocking” classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.

Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo “sickening” and said it was “worse than Watergate.”

I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo

— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) January 19, 2018

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), another Judiciary Committee member, called the memo “deeply troubling” and said it raises questions about the “Obama DOJ and Comey FBI.”

“The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation,” he tweeted.

#ReleaseTheMemo was a trending Twitter topic on Thursday evening as public concern over alleged Obama-era abuse of government surveillance power mounted.

The hashtag quickly accumulated over 300,000 tweets, trending worldwide and in the United States.

Users took to social media to demand the release of a four-page memo currently circulating in Congress, allegedly revealing government surveillance abuses under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

Republican lawmakers have described the memo as “shocking” and “alarming.” Ohio Representative Jim Jordan said the American people “have to see this.”

Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, stated in testimony it “makes sense” to him that the FBI paid for a trip to Rome by the former British spy who was contracted by Simpson’s company to produce the largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier.

Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Last July, Steele reportedly traveled to Rome, where he met with an FBI contact to supply the agency with the anti-Trump dossier and other information he found during the course of his anti-Trump work.

Steele’s dossier reportedly served as some of the basis for the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and unsubstantiated claims of coordination with Russia.

Just before those statements, Simpson was asked: “Do you know who paid for Mr. Steele’s trip to Rome to meet with the FBI?”

Simpson replied: “I have read recently that — I think in a letter from Senator Grassley that the FBI reimbursed the expense. But to be clear, I mean, that’s it. He was, to my knowledge, not been (sic) compensated for that work or any other work during this time.”

Simpson was likely referring to a March 6 letter from Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley requesting information and documents about the FBI’s ties to Steele, including whether the agency utilized Steele for its investigation into Trump and whether the FBI paid Steele or intended to pay him.

The Washington Post reported in February that Steele “reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work, according to several people familiar with the arrangement.”

Ultimately, the FBI did not pay Steele, the Post reported.

The Post report continued:

Communications between the bureau and the former spy were interrupted as Steele’s now-famous dossier became the subject of news stories, congressional inquiries and presidential denials, according to the people familiar with the arrangement, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

The FBI’s national press office did not return a Breitbart News request seeking comment on whether the agency paid for Steele’s Rome trip or reimbursed him for any expenses.

>Fake Dossier

Fusion GPS Founder Admits Couldn’t Confirm Dossier Allegations

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson made a surprising if not damning admission in his interview with the House Intelligence Committee in November.

According to a transcript of his interview, released late Thursday, Simpson acknowledged that he “will never” be able to confirm a key allegation made in the infamous Steele dossier about Carter Page, the former Trump campaign adviser.

The admission is significant because of the likelihood that the FBI and Justice Department relied on allegations made about Page in the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant against him prior to the 2016 election.

And though Simpson apparently did not know whether some of the allegations about Page in the dossier were accurate, he admitted spreading the information to journalists as part of a broad media outreach campaign.

That media outreach push was tacitly approved by the Clinton campaign and DNC, both of which paid Fusion GPS to investigate Trump.

The oppo firm hired Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer, to do the leg work of the investigation.

In two memos put together in July 2016, Steele alleged that Page, an energy consultant based in New York, met secretly with two Kremlin insiders during a trip to Moscow earlier in the month. He also alleged that Page was working with Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort as part of a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between the campaign and Russian leadership.

Federal Government 'Shutdown' Is Mostly Hoot, Much of Government Would Still Operate via Contingency Plans Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 18:58:34 Id: 6dcd10 [Preview] No. 5600 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
If the federal government shuts down at midnight Friday, much of its work will continue, according to carefully laid plans that have become a familiar part of agency life amid regular political brinkmanship.

Social-security payments will be deposited as 53,000 workers for that agency stay on the job, because the payments don’t rely on an annual appropriation and by “necessary implication,” government lawyers have decided, the Social Security Administration should make sure they go out.

The planned Women’s March on the National Mall should be able to go ahead, as the National Park Service says it has special provisions for first amendment activities that require crowd control. Meat, poultry and egg inspections will continue, because they are considered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to be essential to safeguarding human life.

And so, too, will the work of special counsel Robert Mueller investigating potential Russian interference in the 2016 election, since that doesn’t rely on an annual funding appropriation. Mr. Mueller’s team will join around 95,000 Justice Department employees continuing law-enforcement activities, because, the agency says: “The law enforcement capacity of the U.S. Government should not be impaired or perceived to be impaired.”

The detailed picture, including the myriad justifications for shutdown exceptions, comes from hundreds of pages of contingency plans updated by federal agencies in 2017 and published online.

The director of the White Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, told reporters Friday that his agency intended to manage the shutdown across the federal government differently from the Obama administration’s approach in 2013.

“We are going to manage the shutdown differently; we are not going to weaponize it,” said Mr. Mulvaney, who in 2013 was among congressional Republicans accusing the Obama administration of closing popular elements of government such as national monuments to turn public opinion against the GOP.

Mr. Mulvaney said national parks would remain open, unlike in 2013, though trash collection would be suspended.

In December, S&P Global Ratings estimated a fresh shutdown “could shave approximately 0.2 percentage points, or $6.5 billion, off of real fourth-quarter GDP growth for each week it drags on.”

If the government shuts down again, Americans who need a new or replacement social-security card will have to wait. The National Gallery of Art and Smithsonian museums have enough money to stay open Saturday and Sunday and would close thereafter. Some federally produced economic reports won’t be released.

The Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission will keep five presidential appointees, one administrative judge, two employees and a computer expert on the job in case of an emergency, telling everyone else to stay home. The Environmental Protection Agency will shrink from a staff of more than 14,000 to three presidential appointees and 781 other employees to “protect life and property,” including by working on Superfund hazardous waste sites and securing EPA laboratories.

Under the Obama-era plan for the White House set in 2015, 545 out of 1,263 staffers would stay on the job, including 125 presidential appointees and other staff considered exempt from shutdown rules, as would 42 aides on the National Security Council and 128 officials at the Office of Management and Budget who can “assist in providing direction to the executive branch for the duration of any shutdown.”

Among the other effects of the 2013 shutdown cited by the Obama administration: 1.2 million mortgage and loan applications delayed because lenders couldn’t verify income and social-security numbers from the Internal Revenue Service, 200 drilling permits that languished at the Bureau of Land Management, and two million liters of U.S. beer, wine and distilled spirits that sat at ports because the Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau couldn’t issue export certificates.

The Park Service lost around $7 million in revenue from entrance fees, campgrounds, tours and special uses, Mr. Obama’s OMB said. The October jobs report and consumer-price index weren’t released, and around $3.7 billion in tax refunds were stalled.

Without Head Start appropriations, some grantees in the program providing early-childhood education to low-income families temporarily closed. A similar situation now awaits enrollees in the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which has been without a reauthorization for three months, and has become a major sticking point in negotiations.

After the shutdown in October 2013, many federal workers now know the drill: Report to work for four hours of the first working day of a shutdown to learn whether they are subject to furloughs or considered exempt, put up “out of office” notices, secure property and tie up loose ends for an indefinite period.

And unlike in past shutdowns, federal workers can now readily access detailed guides from the Office of Personnel Management explaining that in some states they can file for unemployment compensation while going without paychecks, but will have to pay it back if they are awarded back pay—which Congress authorized in 2013.

It's Time To Take Our Privacy Back From Tech Companies Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 16:24:05 Id: 21b4d5 [Preview] No. 5593 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Your personal information is being collected, organized, purchased and sold on a global market. Polls consistently show that most people are concerned they have lost control of their own personal data. No one is immune from the pervasive information grab by governments, companies, and hackers. This is happening to pretty much anyone alive (or dead) who has ever used the internet, a credit card, gone to school, subscribed to cable television or used a cell phone.

Here are some good privacy tips: https://archive.fo/lVGpv

We can also change the rules that govern the way your information is collected and used.

Taking control of your information is very difficult, still possible, but certainly not very convenient. Think of your data or information as personal property. Companies and governments can use eminent domain or other seizure processes to take that property, but the sting eases when you realize they must afford due process and justly compensate the owner for the property taken.

The biggest difference between your digital property and other personalty is that your every action online creates new digital items of value. Especially your online actions that involve monetary transactions, such as what kind of movies you watch, food you eat or places you visit. This data goes into a profile that increases the value of your information to a marketing company.

Today, internet service providers, social media and search engines develop and sell your profile. Sometimes these marketing companies develop or buy popular apps so they can directly collect information. Your digital property is making money for everyone involved in the process — except you.

My question is, if we are creating something of value, shouldn’t we get compensated for it? We shouldn’t view all data mining as negative. Make no mistake, some of it can get creepy, but most of it is designed to put products I like in my wallet’s sight line. The part that’s disconcerting is that it’s usually done without my knowledge or consent. This is especially troubling when it comes to my children’s information, as kids are now more in touch with electronics than any generation before them. One university study revealed that by age two, 90 percent of kids have a moderate ability to use digital devices.

What’s even worse is when this invasion of privacy is used as a way to extort money. It wasn’t that long ago AT&T actually charged customers $30 a month to not be spied on. It was also just this past summer that AT&T talked about rolling out regular internet service that would come with ads based on their data mining. They would allow customers to opt out of their information grabbing ad-crammed service, but for an additional cost of $500 to $800 annually. AT&T has done something important here: admit how much your digital property is worth.

This is another reason people should be buying a cheap private VPN service! Here is a list of great private VPN services: https://archive.fo/8IvJu

There are, however, a few places that have seen the light. Switzerland, for instance, with their long established respect for personal privacy. Under Article 13 of the country’s constitutional right to privacy, authorities are not allowed access to anyone’s personal data without their notification and a thorough and transparent data request process. Another example is Australia, where new legislation would allow consumers to own their data. This policy would force government agencies and companies to get explicit permission from users before transferring or selling their data to third parties. Compare that to the United States’ current consideration of Section 702, and the unforgivable lack of media coverage over how much of your information law enforcement is allowed to collect and sift through without notice, or even much cause to then use it for whatever purpose they want.

Our actions create new digital property with every click of the mouse, and the result has monetary value. Companies like AT&T shouldn’t be allowed to loot our information, then profit from it. We pay them for a service, nothing more. If they want my data, they should have to compensate me. Facebook allows me to use their platform to connect with others for this privilege, and I consider it fair enough to stay on the platform. It’s my right to leave that platform, and remove their rights to my digital property when I do.

State legislators and Congress need to be urged to recognize that we own our personal digital property, and clarify it is protected through the bundle of property rights protected by the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. So, next time someone running for office stops by your area, ask them if they believe the data you generate — which has significant monetary value (apparently $500 to $800/year) — is rightfully yours and what they will do to protect your rights. It’s time to stop this digital robbery, and it is time we take action to take back our privacy and property.

Yep. Pedowood has great control over those they contract as celebrities and stars. They threatened to do the same thing to Jim Carry after he started talking out about how they put poisons in the vaccines that may be contributing to rising cancer and autism. Can't have that! They threatened to ruin his whole career over it if he didn't shut up. Sadly, Jim Carry shut up real fast.

Germany No More: Historic German Church Demolished as Mosques Multiply Across the Subjugated Vassal State Reader 01/15/2018 (Mon) 22:27:30 Id: 4bd52c [Preview] No. 5510 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The 19th century Church of St Lambertus in Immerath, Germany, has been torn down despite public protests, as mosques and Islamic centres multiply across the country.

The huge building, which was “notable for its double towers and neo-Romanesque design”, according to the Catholic Herald, was demolished by the RWE mining company to make way for an opencast lignite mine.

St Lambertus and the farming village surrounding it was bought out by RWE some years ago, with the church being formally deconsecrated in 2013.

Villagers have been relocated to a new site, and provided with a new church built “according to a modern design”.

Good things are easily destroyed, but not easily created.

The demolition of St Lambertus comes as Islamic religious structures are spreading across Germany.

This process has accelerated over recent decades to keep pace with the large and steadily expanding Turkish community, but was turbocharged by Chancellor Merkel’s decision — enacted on fairly dubious legal grounds — to suspend Germany’s border controls and invite refugees in unlimited numbers in 2015.

I actually feel really bad for the German people. I'd imagine it would feel the same for Americans if Hillary were to have been elected. I would have hung my head in shame with a sense of absolute hopelessness.

The only hope Americans have not end up like Germany is to hold onto their guns (legally or illegally).

"Pure Coincidence": America’s Unhealthiest State Has Highest Vaccination Rate Reader 01/17/2018 (Wed) 19:52:49 Id: f956fb [Preview] No. 5551 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5468

New figures released by the CDC reveals that America’s unhealthiest State – Mississippi – just so happens to have the highest vaccination rate in the country.

In a Daily Beast Op-ed, Paul Offit – one of the vaccine industry’s biggest cheerleaders – openly admits the new figures are ‘puzzling.’

How, Offit wonders, could the state of Mississippi, which has “the worst overall health in the nation,” have used standout “efficiency” to achieve over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners? Rather than seriously investigate this apparent enigma, Offit presents his ready-made answer and reveals his article’s true purpose. According to Paul Offit, Mississippi’s high vaccination rates are due to the state’s 1979 decision to make the government—rather than parents—the primary vaccine decision-maker for children.

Reflecting on the Mississippi Supreme Court’s 1979 elimination of that state’s religious exemption to vaccination, Offit applauds the Court’s position, stating, “If a parent harbors a religious belief that contradicts a basic tenant [sic] of modern medicine…the state has a right to protect the child from the irresponsible acts of the parent.” Offit—though a parent himself—tells readers that the state-determined “duty” to vaccinate supersedes other parental rights. In short, Offit appears to believe that coercion is the name of the game, openly admitting that he disapproves of the 47 states that still allow parents in the U.S. to take religious, moral or personal beliefs into account when making vaccine decisions on behalf of their children.

“The worst health in the nation”

According to the comprehensive state-by-state health rankings that Offit cites, Mississippi has remained squarely at the bottom of the nation’s overall health rankings for decades (Figure 1). The low ranking correlates, in part, with the state’s poverty statistics: one-third of Mississippi’s children live in poverty (the highest percentage of any state), and 87% of the state’s Medicaid enrollees are children. But from birth on, scattered health statistics suggest that Mississippi’s children and adolescents face other physical and mental health challenges as well. To cite some examples from the available data:

Mississippi’s infant mortality rate is more than twice as high (8.8 deaths per thousand live births) as New Hampshire’s (4.2 per 1000), which is the U.S. state with the highest health ranking. The percentage of low birthweight babies in Mississippi is also high—11.4% versus 6.9% in New Hampshire.

Asthma-related emergency department visits and hospital discharges are higher for children ages 0-4 than for any other pediatric or adult age group.

I live in the suburbs and I have seen white people eat just as poorly as black people all the time. Parents taking their kids out to Taco Bell and McD's and Sonic. Shit, whole families getting twice baked pizzas and drinking it down with a 12 pack of soda.

Uhhhhhh! You have no clue seriously bad diet and unhealthy lifestyles is being directed against the population as a whole, do you?

This is not just about one 'inferior' race. This is about horrific health habits and those vaccines they pump people full of are full of toxins as well. It is very sad, but I must now restate my previous conclusion:

Health is all about the immune system. If you have a strong immune system, you can fight sickness without much intervention. If your immune system is weak, then you'll need medical attention and have a very hard time when falling ill (and you stand a better chance of falling ill with a weakened immune system.)

Why does Big Pharma lace the vaccines with poison?

Simple: $$$$$$

By injecting you with laced toxins, they are weakening your immune system. By weakening your immune system, you need more help and services when you get sick. This makes Big Pharma more money! They will never admit this (because its a war crime by UN Geneva Convention Laws). But, like all other despots, they do it anyway, because they make profits when people are SICK... not the other way around.

Until Americans come to terms with these war crimes for profit, they will remain ignorant, sickly and die young, enjoying what stupidity has to offer while it lasts.

Here's some other facts about modern vaccines, it is a copypasta but a fucking good one:

Regardless of what your position on vaccinations is, any rational person cannot deny that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic. In fact, almost every single ingredient in any immunization is toxic to the human body. Besides the vitamins and minerals, nobody in their right mind would drink a concoction with any one or combination of most of the vaccine ingredients (and those vitamins and minerals they add are toxic, too). Most vaccinations are directly injected into our bodies, allowing the ingredients to directly enter the bloodstream, which rationally, seems like an even more dangerous approach.

Vaccine ingredients (adjuvants and preservatives) and substances used in the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media that are present only in trace quantities, include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, squalene and ethanol. Vaccinations also contain many inorganic minerals, vitamins, amino acids, salts, and sugars.

Much of the vaccine material will not leave the body without assistance, especially with a typical modern lifestyle and diet.

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. tonight after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday. The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation.

The government official said that after reading the document “some of these people should no longer be in the government.” -Sara Carter

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) echoed Sara Carter's sentiment that people might lose their job if the memo is released.

“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

Meanwhile, Rep. Matt Gatetz (R-FL) said not only will the release of this memo result in DOJ firing, but "people will go to jail."

The dossier was used in part as evidence for a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign, according to a story published this month. Former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier in 2016, was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS. The firm’s founder is Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who has already testified before Congress in relation to the dossier. In October, The Washington Post revealed for the first time that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC that financed Fusion GPS.

Congressional members are hopeful that the classified information will be declassified and released to the public.

“We probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month,” stated a congressional member, who asked not to be named. -Sara Carter

Good! Betsy DeVos Ends Toxic Obama-era Common Core Program After Proven Dumbing Down American Children Reader 01/18/2018 (Thu) 16:06:49 Id: 8a2439 [Preview] No. 5567 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has banned Common Core from being taught in U.S. schools after the Obama-era program was found to dumb down American kids.

In a speech Wednesday at an American Enterprise Institute conference, Devos announced that Common Core would no longer be permitted to be taught to children in America.

https://archive.fo/zNowJ

Prior to her announcement, some schools had already taken it upon themselves to dump the Common Core program, which saw significant improvements in test results afterwards.

One school in Florida, Mason Classical Academy, soared to the number one position in the State’s top schools list, just months of dumping the controversial method of teaching.

DeVos also decried the federal government’s initiatives to improve education.

“We saw two presidents from different political parties and philosophies take two different approaches. Federally mandated assessments. Federal money. Federal standards. All originated in Washington, and none solved the problem. Too many of America’s students are still unprepared,” she said.

And she touched on a favorite topic, school choice.

“Choice in education is not when a student picks a different classroom in this building or that building, uses this voucher or that tax-credit scholarship. Choice in education is bigger than that. Those are just mechanisms,” she said.

Great post. Parents lives matter.

Honestly in answer, I was home schooled from grade 5 up, got my diploma at age 15, went to work as low wage prole right off the bat. I am fully vested in Social Security they owe me some 50,000 USD which I cannot claim yet unless I disable myself or actually become disabled. I mention this all, simply because, a life of education and fun work, is not enough, I can tell you that much. All the work I did in IT sector is for nothing, tecch came in, Zuckerturd came in, all that we did, as regular workers, was for nothing. Collegiate greekfags and their interlocking networks of shame and power, are what is the clockspring of this diseased planet, at this time. However, as your post makes clear (on a 'news' forum) parents are waking up. I would say worry less about common core as defined by dumbfucks corporations and other inhumans. Core competency means knowing history, and understand how the bolt of a rifle works. Common core kids of the future, will have a common core of being able to swap rifles interchangeably and to have good response to ambush under fire. If you as a parent, cannot raise a soldier in that homeschooling environment, you may as well send them into the machine with just good values. Because the machine will teach them to be a soldier for the bad side, if you dont understand what the battlefield looks like at this time. Parenting is like becoming a Army Commander, and you have to wait 30 years to see how good your training ideology was. A lot of parents have great kids, I know because I live in America.

Luckily I never grew up with all this common core bullshit, I grew up in the day when dropping out was not considered a big deal either, typically young men would drop out to join the service or help out the family business.

I do remember when my daughter was in high school they started enacting "zero tolerance" and for the first time parents were held accountable if their kids skipped school. One time my daughter did just that and they blamed ME for it, asserting that I would be held legally responsible if she kept ditching classes.

I can't even imagine what Comm(unist) Core is like.
