VIDEO — Online Slacktivism

by Richard Hall
Jan 13, 2016

Neil Sanders returns to continue his rant about social media. Do people behave differently on social media than they would person to person? Has the environment of social media been deliberately designed to encourage the sort of behaviour we see on social media? Is social media a very good way to both contain and monitor all forms of activism? (or should I say slacktivism). Are you a social media slacktivist? With social media becoming more and more popular, especially with the younger generations – have we sleep walked into the mouth of a social engineering monster being ran by the security services? – Neil Sanders gives his views and advice. It seemed that the internet was going to be an information revolution – which it undoubtedly has been for some, but is the internet being used by the majority for their own benefit or their own downfall?

MUST SEE — Social Media Engineering

by Richard Hall
Jan 5, 2016

Neil Sanders returns to the show to talk about social media. Most people’s internet use has changed over the last ten years with more and more time being spent using social media. Neil Sanders compares behavioural tendancies on social media sites with psychological experiments and mind adherence strategies explored in the 1960’s. He explains that the conditions created during a Facebook session are very similar. Neil doubts that this is an accident and explains that the types of behaviour people are corralled into exhibiting is both damaging and probably deliberate. Is your Facebook profile more popular than the real you? Then you might be in a continuous loop of reward seeking and narcissism resulting in smiling depression. Have you ever stopped to think who the hell REALLY set all this up and why?

Computers, Artificial Intelligence and the All-Seeing Eye

As explained in Computer: A History of the Information Machine, the personal computer was in large part a product of the “computer liberation” movement that grew out of the counter-culture of California in the 1960s. More specifically, those trends were in turn an outgrowth of the CIA’s MK-Ultra program that popularized drug use for “mind-expanding” purposes.

A leading representative of this trend, who coined the term “personal computer,” was Stewart Brand, MK-Ultra agent and founder of the influential Whole Earth Catalogue. Before studying biology at Stanford University, Brand attended Phillips Exeter Academy, a prestigious American private prep school in New Hampshire, one of the oldest secondary schools in the US. The Economist described the school as belonging to “an elite tier of private schools” in Britain and America that counts Eton and Harrow in its ranks. Exeter has a long list of famous former students, including Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, novelist John Irving and Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and the Masonic-inspired The Lost Symbol.

Phillips Exeter Academy was established in 1781 by banker Dr. John Phillips, who was a great-grandson of the Rev. George Phillips, founder of the Congregational Church in America, who arrived on the ship Arbella with Governor Winthrop in 1630. John Winthrop, who one of the leading figures in the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the first major settlement in New England after Plymouth Colony, was also an alchemist and follower of the infamous sorcerer John Dee, who was the driving force behind the Rosicrucian movement of the early seventeenth century.[1]

Mind Control? Scientists Have Discovered How To Use Nanoparticles To Remotely Control Behavior!

Dec 2, 2013

We are moving into a time when the extraordinary advances that have been made in the fields of nanotechnology, neurology, psychology, computer science, telecommunications and artificial intelligence will be used by governmental authorities to control the population?  Already, governments around the world are using the threat of “terror” as an excuse to watch us, track us, scan all of our electronic communications and force us to endure “security measures” that are so extreme that even George Orwell could have never dreamed them up.   So what is going to happen one day when some crazed individual actually does set off a weapon of mass destruction in a major city?  The temptation to use these emerging technologies to control the public will become almost irresistible.  At this point “mind control” is still a dirty word to many, but after the next couple of “9/11 style events” the general population will be crying out for something to be done to ensure their security.  When society experiences a complete and total meltdown in the years ahead, governments around the world will be tempted to do just about anything, including using mind control, to restore order.  That is why some of the most recent advances in the field on nanotechnology are so chilling.

In particular, what a team of researchers at the University at Buffalo have discovered is truly alarming.  The following is an excerpt from their recent news release….

Clusters of heated, magnetic nanoparticles targeted to cell membranes can remotely control ion channels, neurons and even animal behavior, according to a paper published by University at Buffalo physicists in Nature Nanotechnology.

Using nanoparticles to remotely control animal behavior?

It doesn’t take a doctorate to understand the implications of such a technology.

What if “nanobots” that had the capacity to control human minds were programmed to search out and attach themselves to key areas of the human brain?

Such “nanobots” would be far too small to even be seen by the human eye, and people could become “infected” with these creatures without even knowing it.

Hordes of these nanobots could be released into the atmosphere or in public areas and infect thousands (or even millions) and nobody might even realize it.

If governments could find a way to use nanobots to remotely control the minds of the general population, a mass mind control program could be implemented without the general public even realizing what is going on.

Yes, this is just how scary this technology is.

imagescad61hvnBut it gets even worse.

You see, when it comes to nanotechnology we are dealing with something far more dangerous than we can even imagine.

For example, if something goes horribly wrong and we develop speed-breeding self-assembling nanobots that get out of control, they could theoretically devour all life on Earth in fairly short order.

Think of the scene at the end of the recent Keanu Reeves movie entitled “The Day The Earth Stood Still” and multiply it by about a million.

But even if such a scenario never plays out, the mind control potential of nanotechnology is bad enough.

Not that other mind control technologies aren’t equally as dangerous.

The truth is that all kinds of mind control technologies are being developed.

Video game makers are busy developing games that you control not with a joystick or a gamepad but rather with your brain waves.  So could such a technology someday be used in reverse?

Of course most people by now have heard of  MK-ULTRA and other mind control programs that were developed by the CIA and other U.S. government agencies.

The U.S. government insists that all such programs have been discontinued.

But are they telling the truth?

VIDEO/PODCAST — Andreas Antonopoulos on Singularity 1 on 1: “Bitcoin is not currency; it’s the internet of money!”

via Nikola Danaylov
Apr 23, 2014

Andreas Antonopoulos is arguably the face of bitcoin because he is probably the most prolific interviewee as well as the most publicly recognized expert in the field of crypto-currency. To top it off, Andreas is extremely eloquent, has an impressively broad spectrum of knowledge and is an admitted disruptarian. I have been receiving numerous requests to interview him on Singularity 1 on 1 and was very happy to finally have the opportunity to do so during the recent Bitcoin Expo 2014.

During our 85 min conversation with Andreas Antonopoulos we cover a very wide variety of topics such as: the very first time he heard of bitcoin and his instant dismissal as “nerd money”; Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper and the monumental impact it had on Andreas; what is bitcoin and how it solves the technical problems of past crypto-currencies; decentralizing trust, money and the consequent revolutionary changes; deflation, inflation and the ability to divide a bitcoin into 100 million Satoshis; money for AI; proof of work and “mining” of coins; why trying to shut down bitcoin is like trying to shut down the internet; the blockchain security, anonymity, transparency and implications thereof; Charlie Stross’ criticisms; libertarians, disruptarians and money neutrality; whether bitcoin is the singularity of money…

Yesterday, the pope. Today, Zuck.

For the second day in a row, one of the world’s most powerful people visited New York to speak on the world stage.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg addressed the United Nations twice Saturday.

During the 70th annual U.N. General Assembly session, Zuckerberg discussed the “importance of connectivity in achieving the U.N.’s sustainable development goals.” He was scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the United Nations Private Sector Forum, where U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were also scheduled to speak.

“Connecting the world is one of the fundamental challenges of our generation,” Zuckerberg said. “More than 4 billion people don’t have a voice online.”

Earlier in the day, Zuckerberg and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates led a high-powered contingent whose goal is to bring Internet access to everyone in the world by 2020 – part of a U.N. effort to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. U.N. officials estimate half the world does not have reliable access, especially women and girls, whose education and health is crucial to anti-poverty efforts.

Transhumanism & the Illuminati

Transhumanism may seem like a crackpot fringe movement, but it is the new ideology of the Illuminati.

Transhumanism is expressed as a bizarre aspiration to achieve immortality, according to lunatic ambitions like cryogenics, placing miniature robots in our bloodstream, “augmenting” ourselves as cyborgs, and even uploading our minds to the Internet.

Sound like the prognostications of a mad scientist? However, these new trends are being spearheaded by the likes of Google, and are therefore in the hands of those who have at their disposal the means to exercise extraordinary control over our lives. One of Google’s own heads of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, is the adored modern-day prophet of transhumanism.

The truth is, that a formidable conspiracy has taken place right under our noses for the last 50 years. While all the attention of conspiracy researchers has been focused on JFK, UFOs and 9/11, a plot to create the ultimate surveillance tool has proceeded almost unsuspected. It has been the plan to bring about the All-Seeing Eye of the reverse side of the American dollar bill: the personal computer.

The history of transhumanism is the history of Satanism in our time. It begins with the Cybernetics Group, a CIA front, headed by Norbert Wiener. In God and Golem, Inc., Wiener compares the creation of artificial intelligence with the Kabbalistic legend of the golem, a supposed living being created through magical means.

From the Cybernetics Group also emerged MK-Ultra, the CIA’s “mind-control” program, which was an extension of the Nazis’ experiments on schizophrenics, imported with Operation Paperclip. MK-Ultra promoted the “mind-expanding” quality of psychedelic drugs, based on occult legends that the shamans of ancient times used similar substances, equated with the “apple” of the Tree of Knowledge, to contact the spirit world.

Through MK-Ultra patients among the Beat Poets, like Allen Ginsberg, and agents William S. Burroughs, the CIA produced the Hippie culture of 60s. With “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll”, they fulfilled the plans of the Frankfurt School to overthrow traditional morality by way of the infamous bands of the Laurel Canyon scene, in league with members of Crowley’s OTO, the Manson Family and the Church of Satan.

Knowing that the creation of the computer would be correctly suspected as a tool of Big Brother, the CIA aligned the Hippie ideals with the emerging computer culture to produce a movement called Cyberpunk, from which transhumanism evolved.

Ashley Madison: The Internet’s Greatest COINTEL PRO Honey Pot?

21st Century Wire says…
Aug 20, 2015

[Potent News editor’s update: John McAfee: Ashley Madison database stolen by lone female who worked for Avid Life Media]

Finally, the real reason why professional hackers have lifted the data of 37 million users from the fashionable ‘infidelity’ website Ashley Madison.

1-Ashley-Madison

IMAGE: ‘OOPS.’

Anyone employed by the state who was stupid enough to join this site should by now realize that this whole hacking affair was a staged exercise in mass entrapment, and blackmail. The media are making a big deal about how this hack is somehow a “goldmine” for cyber criminals, but do not dare mention that, besides a public hack, what this kind of information could do in the hands of the deep state via covert agencies like the NSA, the FBI or the CIA, Canada’s CSIS, or overseas spook houses like Britain’s MI5, or Israel’s Mossad. Easy pickings, all in one place.

Much has been made of the not-so-bright conclave of 15,000 US gov’t and military personnel with .gov and .mil addresses – all of whom who were using the website to facilitate their extramarital flings, but the pool of suckers is not limited to American shores. AP reports:

“Although many may have signed up out of curiosity and some have little more to fear than embarrassment, the consequences for others could reverberate beyond their marriages. The French leak monitoring firm CybelAngel said it counted 1,200 email addresses in the data dump with the .sa suffix, suggesting users were connected to Saudi Arabia, where adultery is punishable by death.”

According to the Telegraph, UK gov’t and Defense Dept. staff were particularly badly hit in the data dump:

“According to the website Political Scrapbook, there are 92 Ministry of Defence email addresses among the leaked details. The website has found 1,716 email addresses from universities and further education colleges, using the .ac.uk suffix; 124 using .gov.uk; 92 using .mod.uk; 65 local education authorities and schools using .sch.uk; 56 National Heath Service emails and less than 50 police emails (.police.uk)”

“Michelle Thomson, one of the SNP’s newly-elected Westminster MPs, has said one of her email addresses is among the leaked data dumped online by hackers. The married MP said someone had stolen her email address and used it without her knowledge.”

Of course, the really big winner in this scandal, as with most things – are the lawyers. Elizabeth Hicks, partner at British divorce law firm Irwin Mitchell, must be chuffed about the potential for future business:

With 1.2m Britons apparently affected by the data leak, 95 per cent of whom are reportedly male, there will no doubt be a few nervous husbands sat round the dinner table tonight.”

It’s also a potential disaster for the website’s closet gay users. Business Insider adds here:

“Avid Life is based in Toronto, but, as its site boasts, it has “over 40 million members worldwide.” Many of these members live in countries where adultery or homosexuality are illegal, and often with very serious punishments. One Reddit user says that he lives in Saudi Arabia, but used Ashley Madison while studying in the US to “keep my [gay] hookups extremely discreet,” and that he “only used AM to hook up with single guys.” He says he has since been forced to flee the country.”

This just goes to show what a true ‘honey pot’ these types of “vice” websites really are…
