Noam Chomsky, Alfred de Zayas, Sujatha Fernandes, Boots Riley, John Pilger, Vijay Prashad and many others oppose US interventionism in Venezuela. The statement is worth the read.

The United States government must cease interfering in Venezuela’s internal politics, especially for the purpose of overthrowing the country’s government. Actions by the Trump administration and its allies in the hemisphere are almost certain to make the situation in Venezuela worse, leading to unnecessary human suffering, violence, and instability.

Venezuela’s political polarization is not new; the country has long been divided along racial and socioeconomic lines. But the polarization has deepened in recent years. This is partly due to US support for an opposition strategy aimed at removing the government of Nicolás Maduro through extra-electoral means. While the opposition has been divided on this strategy, US support has backed hardline opposition sectors in their goal of ousting the Maduro government through often violent protests, a military coup d’etat, or other avenues that sidestep the ballot box.

Under the Trump administration, aggressive rhetoric against the Venezuelan government has ratcheted up to a more extreme and threatening level, with Trump administration officials talking of “military action” and condemning Venezuela, along with Cuba and Nicaragua, as part of a “troika of tyranny.” Problems resulting from Venezuelan government policy have been worsened  by US economic sanctions, illegal under the Organization of American States and the United Nations ― as well as US law and other international treaties and conventions. These sanctions have cut off the means by which the Venezuelan government could escape from its economic recession, while causing a dramatic falloff in oil production and worsening the economic crisis, and causing many people to die because they can’t get access to life-saving medicines. Meanwhile, the US and other governments continue to blame the Venezuelan government ― solely ― for the economic damage, even that caused by the US sanctions.

Now the US and its allies, including OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro and Brazil’s far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, have pushed Venezuela to the precipice. By recognizing National Assembly President Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela ― something illegal under the OAS Charter ― the Trump administration has sharply accelerated Venezuela’s political crisis in the hopes of dividing the Venezuelan military and further polarizing the populace,

UN experts call for Assange’s unconditional release as he loses last appeal over restrictive rules

A UN-endorsed team of experts has urged London to “immediately” allow WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy, as the court of last resort denied his appeal over a newly imposed set of ‘censure’ rules.

Seong-Phil Hong, chair-rapporteur of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, and Michel Forst, special rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, reiterated calls for the UK to abide by international law and allow Assange to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy without any precondition.

Assange sues Ecuador for ‘violating fundamental rights & freedoms’ over new set of ‘censure’ rules

“It is time that Mr Assange, who has already paid a high price for peacefully exercising his rights to freedom of opinion, expression and information, and to promote the right to truth in the public interest, recovers his freedom,” the UN experts demanded in a statement on Friday.

The experts argued that “pre-trial detention must be only imposed in limited instances,” adding that the charges Assange faces in the UK for skipping his bail while applying for asylum cannot justify his six years within the embassy’s walls.

Assange became holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012 after being granted asylum by then-Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa. Assange, who was in the UK at the time, was unable to go to the airport for fear of being arrested and handed over to the US, where he is wanted for exposing diplomatic and military secrets, and has had to stay in the embassy since.

Back in February 2016, the UN working panel found that Assange, who then still faced extradition to Sweden over a rape investigation, was “arbitrarily detained” and must be set free. London called the demand “ridiculous.” Sweden dropped its case against Assange more than a year ago.

Despite the UN experts’ support, Assange suffered a setback with the Ecuadorian justice system. On Friday, Pichincha Provincial Court reaffirmed a decision by a lower court to throw out his appeal against a new set of house rules. The rules laid out in a special protocol in October restricted Assange’s visitation rights,

Zijn deze medische experts dan anti-vaccinatie-gekkies..!?

Het lijkt erop dat de zogenaamde pro-vaccinatieclub niets liever doet, dan mensen die hebben nagedacht over vaccins en vaccinaties, in een hoekje plaatsen, er een etiket opplakken (‘gevaarlijke gekken’ o.i.d.) en ze meesmuilend in hun discussie over bijv. verplichte vaccianties meenemen. Het oude truukje om mensen te denigreren en ‘min’ te maken. Om jezelf áf te zetten en ‘erboven’ uit te toornen, met het perspectief/de visie die je wilt verkopen.

Maar als we in het geval van vaccinaties en de ‘achterkant’ van de vaccin-methode, nu eens een aantal experts, medische experts hun woord laten doen, hoe kleinzielig en minkukelend komt dan de pro-vaccine-beweging ineens ZELF in het hoekje te staan..?

Het gaat ons natuurlijk niet om welles/nietes, maar om een gezonde discussie over de FEITEN rondom dit veelbesproken en beladen onderwerp. Voorop bij al die discussie staat het zelf-beschikkingsrecht van de mens over -nota bene- zijn EIGEN LICHAAM. Maar kennelijk wil een groep pro-vaxxers dat mensen dit recht opgeven, omdat zij vinden dat andere medemensen hierdoor gevaar oplopen.

Let wel, een fundamenteel recht opgeven, omdat een ander dat zegt of afdwingt via een zg. democratische stemming. En ja, ook onder VVD-ers is de vrijheid beperkt, zo liet ene Klaas Dijkhof zijn achterban weten. Een letterlijk DOM betoog, dat je HIER in een artikel op de site kunt vinden.

Het is aangeraden voorzichtig te zijn met vaccinaties, alleen al omdat er geen consensus is onder artsen, of vaccinaties veilig, effectief en betrouwbaar zijn..!! Dan is zo’n uitspraak wel heel erg een teken aan de wand!!

Wij hebben hier op de site een kleine 100 artikelen staan over vaccins en vaccinaties en zijn al bijna 10 jaar bezig om onze lezers/bezoekers duidelijk te maken, dat het middel van de vaccinaties niet betrouwbaar, veilig noch efficient is. En als wij dat schrijven en met jouw delen, dan is het natuurlijk geen dikke duim waar wij deze info vandaan halen.

Natuurlijk laten wij medische wetenschappers aan het woord en tonen we vooral de MEGA-FRAUDE aan, waarmee de medische wereld doorspekt is. Fraude, waardoor beslissingen die worden genomen, om bijv. vaccins goed te keuren, corrupt zijn. Fraude waardoor wetenschappelijk onderzoek VERVALST is. We hebben er geen ander woord voor.

Experts Say Eventually Everyone Will Get A Microchip Implant

Experts Say Eventually Everyone Will Get A Microchip Implant

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

After a company in Wisconsin fitted each of their employees a microchip and claimed they absolutely loved it, many people were adamant that nope, no way, they’d never get chipped like a dog. Some people claimed religious objections (mark of the Beast) while others feel that their privacy has been already been invaded quite enough with the advent of “smart” technology and advertising cookies on the internet.

If you swear to the skies that you’ll never get chipped, several experts quoted in an article on USA Today are here to tell you that you’re wrong.

Associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Noelle Chesley said, “It will happen to everybody. But not this year… Maybe not my generation, but certainly that of my kids.”

Professor Chesley isn’t alone in her prediction. Gene Munster of Loup Ventures had a lot to say about the possibility of everyone getting a microchip. He believes it’s about 50 years away.

“In 10 years, Facebook, Google, Apple, and Tesla will not have their employees chipped,” he says.

“You’ll see some extreme forward-looking tech people adopting it, but not large companies.”

The idea of being chipped has too “much negative connotation” today, but by 2067 “we will have been desensitized by the social stigma,” Munster says. (source)

The article gushes about the “benefits” of getting a microchip embedded in your hand.

This would go beyond paying with your smartphone. Instead, chipped customers would simply wave their hands in lieu of Apple Pay and other mobile-payment systems.

The benefits don’t stop there. In the future, consumers could zip through airport scanners sans passport or drivers license; open doors; start cars; and operate home automation systems. All of it, if the technology pans out, with the simple wave of a hand. (source)

Seriously, how much lazier are humans going to get?

They’re right about the desensitization, though. There are things going on these days that never in a million years would have been okay decades ago,

Experts warn that your phone really is listening to you | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

Experts warn that your phone really is listening to you | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

08-07-18 06:50:00,

Under the guise of convenience, it seems we’ve all been inviting Big Brother into our homes (and our pocket and purses) with open arms. Smartphones and all their associated apps, gadgets and other trinkets of technology proclaim to make life easier: Your phone can now tell you where your car is parked and how far away you are; it will automatically tell you how long your commute to work will be and it can even offer you alternate routes.

These feats are no doubt impressive — but for those who still value their personal privacy (and freedom, honestly), the absence of a true “private” life is unnerving. Your phone (and Google, and Facebook) is always watching: It knows where you’ve been, where you are and where you want to go, it knows who you’re talking to and what restaurant you went to for dinner. The omniscient, omnipresence of the digital world is indeed highly concerning.

You might even liken our new digital overlords to the all-seeing Eye of Sauron in Lord of The Rings. Watching a distressed millennial searching for their misplaced cellphone certainly evokes shades of Gollum.

Your phone is watching you, even if they say its not

Facebook and Google claim that they don’t spy on users without consent. There are countless anecdotes from people who say they have a personal conversation about something — and then later see ads for related products in their Facebook feed.

Peter Henway, a senior security consultant for cybersecurity firm Asterisk, says that phones are constantly lying in wait. If you use virtual assistant apps, the phone is listening for wake words like “Hey Siri” or “OK Google.”

“From time to time, snippets of audio do go back to [apps like Facebook’s]servers but there’s no official understanding what the triggers for that are,” he explained.

“Whether it’s timing or location-based or usage of certain functions, [apps]are certainly pulling those microphone permissions and using those periodically. All the internals of the applications send this data in encrypted form, so it’s very difficult to define the exact trigger,” Henway stated further.

Ultimately, he said, there are thousands of unknown triggers that can prompt devices to start mining your conversations for advertising info. In fact,
