Our civilization has entered the digital age. The technological realm has become pervasive, and we can hardly escape it in our daily interactions. But can we trust those steering the ship? As each day brings new insight into the fraudulent use of personal data, breaches of privacy, and attempts to filter our perception, we need to be more aware than ever. With today’s hasty technological development, few people stop to examine how these changes will affect our privacy, liberty, or our ability to control our own lives. Each week, Liberty Nation’s You’re Never Alone will catch you up on the facts you need to know.

This installment features the latest updates on 5G evolution, a Google privacy invasion, and the way your worldview can be shaped by spying politicos.

Feel The Gs

Last week, we looked at the congressional push to roll out 5G technology across the U.S. as hastily as possible, an agenda which just received a boost from the commander-in-chief. President Trump made it clear on Twitter that he is not only behind 5G, but that he even wants 6G! Not that anybody knows what 6G might actually be. Only a few days after Vice President Mike Pence told European nations to “be vigilant” over possible security threats posed by China’s Huawei network, Trump tweeted that he wanted U.S. technology to beat out alternatives based on merit and not by “blocking” competitors:

I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on something that is so obviously the future. I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies. We must always be the leader in everything we do, especially when it comes to the very exciting world of technology!

While security, the economy, and the locations of network coverage continue to dominate the 5G conversation,

“You’re A Disaster, An Embarrassment To Your Parents” – CEO Rages At Goldman Analyst During Earnings Call

“You’re A Disaster, An Embarrassment To Your Parents” – CEO Rages At Goldman Analyst During Earnings Call

20-10-18 08:58:00,

And you thought Elon Musk lost it…

During the earnings call this morning, Cleveland-Cliffs CEO Lourenco Goncalves, 60, unleashed a torrent of abuse at a Goldman Sachs analyst (as well as short-sellers) threatening to

The call did not end well:

“…before you call the next question, is there a guy named Matthew Korn waiting in line to ask a question.

He is – he calls himself an analyst and he works for Goldman Sachs.

Matthew Korn, if you are in the call, it is still 10:42, why you don’t ask a freaking question. I will be happy to answer.”

And after answering a few questions – amid a call that was calm and orderly – Goncalves went full Musk…

“…some of the analysts that can’t read numbers…

It’s unbelievable that this big bank still employs this type of people, you guys should resign for your lack of knowledge of things, because it’s not like you don’t understand… you are one of the best, it’s not like you don’t understand our business, you don’t understand, you don’t understand your own business.

You are a disaster. You are an embarrassment to your parents. With this being said, we are going to use money to reward the long-term shareholders.”

Listen to Cleveland-Cliffs CEO berate analysts on conference call from CNBC.

Goncalves then switched to attacking the shorts:

“So if the stock continues to go down, based on these kids that play with computers and somebody else’s money, we are going to buy back stock.

We are going to screw these guys so badly that I don’t believe that they will be able to only resign. They will have to commit suicide. So we are going to screw these guys so badly that it will be fun to watch. That will be my first priority other than the two top priorities of finishing HBI and paying down debt.

You are messing with a wrong guy. That’s my message to you. I’m going to do with you exactly what I have been doing in Nashwauk for a while. So you’re going to be the next in line.

Putin to Macron: You’re Not Sovereign, You’re ‘Like Obedient Little Children!’ (Video)

Putin to Macron: You’re Not Sovereign, You’re ‘Like Obedient Little Children!’ (Video)

29-05-18 01:59:00,

The plain-spoken President explains the facts

There has been much talk of Macron behaving like the leader of a sovereign nation recently, but we don’t buy it.

To us, he still has the manner of a schoolboy trying hard to ingratiate himself with grownups. Plus, he is distinctly effeminate.

He obviously didn’t get to where he is on his own merits, rather he was put there by people who are probably not very effeminate.

Putin is a plain-spoken, no BS kind of guy, so this exchange was entertaining.

Macron was trying to say that France is a sovereign nation, which is obviously not true – just look how cravenly they toed the Israeli line in joining in on the recent attack on Syria, Macron spouting the lies dictated to him by his masters. It was pathetic and embarrassing.

Here, Putin gently explains to Macron that he is mistaken.

In the video, Putin’s words are mistranslated as: “You paid like the dearest ones”, which loses all the punch of the original Russian. What Putin actually said is “You paid like ‘milenki’, the sense of which can be better conveyed with ‘obedient little children’. We corrected it in the transcript below.

The translation comes from Putin’s Press Office, which is run by Mr. Peskov. Leave it to government bureaucrats to blow Putin’s best one-liner of the weekend. Mr. Peskov, it is time you hired native English speaking translators who actually speak English. The quality of the translations coming from your office are frequently quite awful, especially when quoting Putin.

Transcript:

Macron:

Concerning international security, I would like to assure Vladimir, that I am not afraid since France has an army

that can protect my country

but I have a strict obligation in relation to other European allies

and I think that this kind of the European security architecture is our responsibility.

In any case, we will not turn our back to anyone, and will not do it at the expense of other European countries.

I will do it this way since I am not afraid and I will fulfill my obligations

Putin

Unfortunate…
