How To Avoid Being Called A Russian Agent Online

The always reliable NBC News has published an important and informative article titled “Russia-linked Twitter accounts promoted ‘doxxing’ over racial tension videos”, which uses fearless investigative insinuations and cutting-edge vagueness to inform readers that viral videos of Americans being racist are essentially a Russian fabrication.

The article’s four authors boldly document the shocking, bombshell findings of a Clemson University study that “almost 30 suspicious Twitter accounts” were involved in retweeting videos of racist behavior from white Americans, and, as alert readers should all be aware by now, “suspicious” is another word for “Russian”. Since we all know that racism has never been a problem in America and only Russian agents could possibly promote such an outlandish idea, we can safely assume that anyone we see sharing viral videos of white Americans being horrible to minorities is a subversive agent of the Kremlin.

Due to the need to protect western democracy from the malign influence of Moscow, it has become increasingly necessary for patriotic citizens to call attention to these nefarious propagandists so that social media users don’t become hypnotized by their soul-corrupting memes. This is why you will very often see alert netizens sounding the alarm online whenever they catch someone doing something Kremliny, such as expressing skepticism of western intelligence agencies or criticizing Kamala Harris. Here are five things you can do to avoid being caught in the crossfire of this vital information war and getting labeled a Russian agent yourself:

1. Always support all actions of the US military and its allies.

There’s only one person who benefits from skepticism toward the activities of western military forces, and that’s Vladimir Putin. Nobody but a GRU agent would question the fact that our brave men and women in uniform are out there fighting for freedom and democracy in the highest interest of everyone involved. Our trusted leaders have never lied to us about what they are using the armed forces for, and they’re not about to start now.

This rule applies to news which demonstrates the need for military action as well. If the television tells you that Bashar al-Assad has dropped poison gas on an area full of children and video cameras, and you find your mind quibbling over details like the absence of any strategic reason for such a thing,

Is Trump Being Blackmailed? | New Eastern Outlook

is-trump-being-blackmailed?-|-new-eastern-outlook

05-08-19 09:36:00,

As of the beginning of August, 2019, Trump has just ordered a series of new sanctions against Russia over the Skripal alleged poison gas incident.

For those unaware, Trump is alleging, without evidence, that Russia used a nerve agent that only exists in a video game, one also alleged to be 100% fatal in even the most minute dosage, to kill a former Russian spy and his daughter living in Britain.

However, no one has seen this pair nor are they dead. In fact, no evidence of any kind has been received by anyone.

Trump has also announced he is sending nuclear tipped medium range missiles into Europe, without NATO approval as part of abrogating the INF treaty. He is doing the same in Asia as well.

New weapons systems deployed or soon to be deployed by Russia makes the idea of this not just useless but insane.

In Syria, Trump is still supporting the White Helmets, a group made up of mercenaries and paid terrorists that have been proven, time and time again, to murder children and use their bodies to stage fake gas attacks, aided by, well this is another not so shocking truth, press organizations directly tied to Israeli intelligence.

Remember, this is the president accused of colluding with Russia, someone who talks with President Putin regularly and who continually espouses improved relations between the United States and Russia.

Yet Trump’s own actions aren’t just inexplicable, they defy more than reason, they offend reality itself.

Going further, we have a new military alliance announced between Russia and Iran with scheduled joint exercises in the Persian Gulf and Straits of Hormuz, in response to Trump’s attempts to create yet another American “coalition of the willing,” a group of nations whose warships are intended to turn that crowded waterway into what would inexorably become a staging area for a world war.

It was Trump who ordered Britain, and we do mean “ordered,” as though Britain were a hand puppet of the United States as Trump himself may well be a blackmailed hand puppet of some unseen power, to seize an Iranian oil tanker on the high seas.

This act by Trump was intended,

5G Smart Cows Are Being Milked by Robots in England | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

5g-smart-cows-are-being-milked-by-robots-in-england-|-light-on-conspiracies-–-revealing-the-agenda

5G-connected cows and a robotic milking system could revolutionize farms in England, reported Reuters.

On a dairy farm in Shepton Mallet, England, 50 cows have been outfitted with 5G smart collars and ear tag sensors that monitor their health.

The smart collars communicate with a robotic milking system. When the cows are ready to be milked, the machine will latch onto the animal’s teats.

The machines observe the cow’s health, production, and even rewards them with munchies. Meanwhile, sensors on the cow’s ear monitor vital signs for indications of discomfort during the milking process and alert operators of trouble.

“We are testing the ability of 5G to transmit the data from our sensors much quicker, and not via the farm’s PC and a slow broadband internet connection,” project manager Duncan Forbes told Reuters. “And the significance of that is it means that this sort of technology could be taken up … not just on farms but on rural communities right across the country.”

The high-tech dairy operation, designed by Agri-EPI with the support of Britain’s Technology Strategy Board, uses artificial intelligence, automated devices, internet of things, and sensors. Some of the smart devices include “automated brushes that rotate when the cow rubs up against them, sensor-operated curtains that open depending on the weather, cameras to watch inside facilities and pastures, and a smart feeding system that automatically delivers food in the barn via ceiling-mounted rails,” said Reuters.

Nick Chrissos, the person responsible for designing the smart farm, who works for Cisco Systems, said: “We can connect every cow, we can connect every animal on this farm. That’s what 5G can do for farming — really unleash the power that we have within this farm, everywhere around the UK and everywhere around the world.”

The collision of automation in the workforce could eliminate upwards of 20% to 25% of current jobs, hitting middle- to low-income workers the hardest by late 2020s. That being said, it now appears farmers are at risk of losing their jobs to robots. This will not end well.

Trump Is Being Set-up for War with Iran – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Trump Is Being Set-up for War with Iran

Paul Craig Roberts

Trump destroyed his chance at being a successful president by the stupid appoinments he has made.  At the moment he is being set up by his national security advisor John Bolton and Israel for a war with Iran.

Using the same format of lies that was used against Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Venezuela, Bolton has accused Iran of “troubling and escalatory indications” of a forthcoming Iranian attack on American forces in the Middle East.  To help protect against the attack, Bolton has ordered Patriot missile batteries, an aircraft carrier strike group, and a bomber strike force to the region.

Even the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, pointed out that Bolton failed to identify the “troubling and escalatory” Iranian actions.  https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/u-s-sends-patriot-missiles-to-the-middle-east-to-counter-iranian-threats-1.7221997  No one else has seen any sign of them.

The reason for the Patriot missiles is not to deter Iran from an attack, but to prevent successful Iranian response to an attack on Iran.

This is the likely situation:  The deal between the Washington Ziocons and Netanyahu is that either Israel will attack an American ship or whatever is selected, and it will be blamed on Iran, thus forcing Trump to “defend America” and retaliate, or Israel using American disguise will attack Iran, thus provoking a response from Iran.  

Iran is already on hair trigger from having been provoked excessively by Washington withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear agreement, reimposing sanctions, and making endless false accusations against Iran, as Washington has done against Russia, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Venezuela, Yemen.  It wouldn’t take much more to set off Iranian emotions.  

Trump is clearly set-up.  If Bolton and Netanyahu want the US at war with Iran, it is their call.

And they do want the US at war with Iran.  Iran and Syria back Hezbollah, and Hezbollah prevents Israel’s annexation of southern Lebanon, which Israel has twice tried only to have its army, which is not good for anything except killing unarmed women and children in Gaza, quickly defeated by Hezbollah.  Thus, eliminating support for Hezbollah is a high priority for Israel and its neoconservative allies in Washington.

The neoconservatives have an additionall reason for delivering chaos to Iran.

We’re All Being Judged By A Secret ‘Trustworthiness’ Score

we8217re-all-being-judged-by-a-secret-8216trustworthiness8217-score

09-04-19 06:00:00,

Nearly everything we buy, how we buy, and where we’re buying from is secretly fed into AI-powered verification services that help companies guard against credit-card and other forms of fraud, according to the Wall Street Journal

More than 16,000 signals are analyzed by a service called Sift, which generates a “Sift score” ranging from 1 – 100. The score is used to flag devices, credit cards and accounts that a vendor may want to block based on a person or entity’s overall “trustworthiness” score, according to a company spokeswoman.

From the Sift website: “Each time we get an event — be it a page view or an API event — we extract features related to those events and compute the Sift Score. These features are then weighed based on fraud we’ve seen both on your site and within our global network, and determine a user’s Score. There are features that can negatively impact a Score as well as ones which have a positive impact.” 

The system is similar to a credit score – except there’s no way to find out your own Sift score. 

Factors which contribute to one’s Sift score (per the WSJ): 

• Is the account new?

• Are there are a lot of digits at the end of an email address?

• Is the transaction coming from an IP address that’s unusual for your account?

• Is the transaction coming from a region where there are a lot of hackers, such as China, Russia or Eastern Europe?

• Is the transaction coming from an anonymization network?

• Is the transaction happening at an odd time of day?

• Has the credit card being used had chargebacks associated with it?

• Is the browser different from what you typically use?

• Is the device different from what you typically use?

• Is the cadence of the way you typed out your password typical for you? (tracked by some advanced systems)

The system is used by companies such as Airbnb,

Why S-300s In Syria Are Not Being Used Against Israeli Aircraft

why-s-300s-in-syria-are-not-being-used-against-israeli-aircraft

22-02-19 08:50:00,

Submitted by SouthFront

There has been considerable speculation in recent months concerning reasons why the S-300 air defense systems supplied to the Syrian Arab Army by the Russian Federation have yet to fire a shot in anger at Israeli aircraft encroaching on its airspace and launching ordnance against a variety of targets on Syria’s territory. This video attempts to explore a reasonably complete range of explanations. On the one hand, the S-300 batteries in Syria operate under a handicap of operational and political restrictions. However, it would be a mistake to believe that just because missiles are not being launched, that the weapons in question are ineffective.

Israel’s Human Shields

One crucial aspect of Israeli aerial operations is their use of civilian air traffic and also US-led coalition operations to shield their aircraft against Syrian air defenses. It is noteworthy that Russian cruise missile strikes, for example, are invariably preceded by international notifications and closures of relevant airspace in order to prevent tragedies. Israel has not followed similar procedures and has frequently sent its combat aircraft into airspace used by civilian airliners over the Mediterranean and Lebanon. Considering the “international reaction” that would have inevitably followed in the event of a Syrian or Russian air defense shoot-down of a civilian airliner, it is rather likely that rules of engagement

used by the Russia-led coalition forces in Syria include strict prohibitions against engaging hostile aircraft when there is even a remote danger to civilian aircraft. The loss of Russian Il-20 with its entire crew to a Syrian air defense missile clearly shows the dangers of engaging remote targets in a crowded airspace.

The Lebanese Doormat

Few examples illustrate the hypocrisy of Western powers’ supposed belief in the sanctity of national sovereignty better than its condoning of near-constant Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace. While that country’s territorial sovereignty is rarely challenged by Israel largely thanks to Hezbollah’s ability to inflict severe casualties on the IDF, neither Hezbollah nor the Lebanese military possess an air force or an air defense system capable of doing the same for the country’s airspace. This allows Israeli aircraft to use Lebanon’s terrain features, specifically the mountain ranges flanking the Bekaa Valley, as a shield against long-range air defense systems.

What’s Not Being Said About the Venezuela Oil War | New Eastern Outlook

whats-not-being-said-about-the-venezuela-oil-war-new-eastern-outlook

17-02-19 10:44:00,

VN

So far much of the discussion over what is driving the bizarre Trump Administration intervention into Venezuela centers around the comments of National Security Adviser John Bolton to claim it’s about oil. In a previous analysis we looked at the prospects of the huge Chavez Basin, formerly the Orinoco Basin, said to hold the world’s largest reserves of oil by some definitions. Now it’s becoming clearer that this de facto war is about far more than control of the heavy oil of the Chavez Basin in Venezuela.

First it’s important to look at which oil companies were already staking various claims on the region’s oil prospects. Within Venezuela, Chinese oil companies led by China National Petroleum Corporation, and the Chinese government have been playing a major role since the Chavez era. In fact the role has become so great Venezuela’s government owes China some $61 billion. Because of the financial problems of the Maduro government, China has been taking debt repayment in form of oil. Since 2010 the Russian state oil company, Rosneft has been involved in joint projects with the Venezuela state PDVSA, mainly in the Orinoco/Chavez Belt. Some years ago Rosneft extended some $6 billion in loans to Venezuela to be also repaid in oil. A recent statement from Rosneft says that $2.3 billion is due by end of this year. Rosneft has participation in five oil projects and 100 percent in a gas project. In addition to CNPC and Rosneft, France’s Total SA, Norway’s Equinor, and US Chevron all hold minority stakes in Venezuela projects, with most vowing to stay despite the political crisis. That raises the question what they know beyond the well-documented heavy oil of Venezuela.

The real prize?

The real prize that these powerful international oil giants are eyeing likely lies well to the east of the Orinoco heavy oil fields where they now operate. The real prize is the ultimate control over one of the best-kept secrets in the oil industry, the huge oil reserves of a disputed area straddling Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil. The region is called Guayana Esequiba. Some geologists believe the Esequiba region and its offshore could contain the world’s largest reserves of oil, oil of far better quality that the heavy Orinoco crude of Venezuela.

Dangerous Type of GMO Being Introduced Into Food Supply | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

Dangerous Type of GMO Being Introduced Into Food Supply | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

15-07-18 07:49:00,

Few topics in the scientific world are as fiercely debated as the use of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Despite the fact that they have passed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA)safety tests, nearly 40 countries around the world have banned their use due to health and environmental concerns.

With a growing population of health-conscious people, the debate over their use continues to rage. While the public has been worried about the safety of GMO foods for ages, the US, Monsanto’s favorite playground, has shown no fear and instead has welcomed a new type of GMO into the food supply.

As reported by Stat News, researchers have found a new, dangerous way to tinker with the genetic basis of the world’s food supply without clear regulatory guidance. These so-called “gene-edited” foods are set to make their big debut soon. Next-generation genetically modified food, or what some are referring to as GMO 2.0, can be altered through “editing or deleting genes, turning genes on or off, or even creating entirely new DNA sequences on a computer.”
