This was pretty weird.  SO I watched the video below, and it got me curious about the Russian and Chinese Internets pulling out of Worldwide Web.  I started to gather articles together to post.   I took a break, and got a phone text from a friend alerting me to a message he had received.   WOW… it was totally related to what I was just looking at.

I went back online and pulled a few more relative articles.  I think you should have a look.  This is very ominous and relative to what is happening at this time, especially with the election battle and the renewed COVID threat.  Please go through the whole article.  Watch the whole video first.  I will come back to highlight and notate.  I have something else I have to do this morning.   I just thought this was so important, I wanted to get it out to you.  We have no idea when this is coming down.


A documentary exploring how artificial intelligence is changing life as we know it — from jobs to privacy to a growing rivalry between the U.S. and China.


“The More Data the Better the AI works”  So, stop feeding it DATA!  Stop using anything off which the AI feeds.  

In the above video, Andrew McAfee – Principal Research Scientist – MIT, said “When we INVENTED ZERO AND MATHEMATICS”  Did you catch that?  He just admitted that Scientists “invented ZERO and MATHEMATICS”  No, they did not invent numbers or Math…. but MODERN MATHEMATHICS by which they justify all of their “SCIENCTISM” is totally concocted by them.  It is WIZARDRY to convince the masses that they are more enlightened.  I love how this guy throws a graph up there, doesn’t explain it at all, gives no source for the data, and acts as if it is just FACT.   There is no fact to justify this graph.  This is totally made up based on “Scientisem”  you believe because “Scientists” tell you.


Alex Rodrigues, CEO of Embark, notes that “keen insights on how gigantic advances in AI make [self-driving trucks] possible.” In a later segment, Rodrigues notes that in “less than half a decade”, we can expect trucks loaded with freight to drive themselves with no one inside (35:00)

Microsoft president, Brad Smith, notes that “artificial intelligence will reshape every aspect of our economy and so many aspects of our lives.” AI is like electricity in that everyone will use it including governments, non-profits and will provide benefits and challenges. (34:13)
Andrew McAfee, MIT research scientist and co-author of the Second Machine Age, notes in the below graph that human development and growth is essentially flat and stagnant for thousands of years despite advances in civilization, science, and mathematics. Yet, the numbers change “in the blink of an eye at one point in time” to completely vertical. What happened was the Industrial Revolution where humans for the first time “overcame the limitations of our muscle power.”
McAfee notes that what is happening now is equally as important. With AI, we are “overcoming the limitations of our minds.”    SOURCE: FRONTLINE – In the Age of AI – Andrew Yang  (I strongly suggest you visit this site and read the rest of the article)


These “Scientists” are so proud of their “INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTIONS 1,2,3 and 4.”  But these things they call advancement have destroyed our economy, wiped out most jobs, drove people into poverty and despair… and they call that social advancement.  They call themselves enlightened and intelligent… what kind of enlightened and intelligent human beings take pride in destroying humanity??

The Internet Kill Switch

There are some ideas about technology that are simply bad thinking. Sen. Rockefeller’s proposal to give the president an Internet Kill Switch is monumentally wrong headed.
(Like Gomer Pyle would say… SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE…gee ROCKEFELLER… who would have guessed?  Did you note the date of this article?  the very fact that the idea was being published, and proposed in Congress should tell you that the ability already existed, had been tested, and was operational. Even by 2009.)

To retain respect for sausages and laws, one must not watch them in the making.”

— Usually attributed to Otto von Bismarck

A bill, currently in draft, which is sponsored by Sen. John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), is a great example of how watching political sausage making will cause you to lose all respect for those cranking the handle.

The nascent bill proposes that the president be given what will be, in effect, the power to shut down the Internet. No, I am not kidding. At first I thought this was some kind of elaborate April Fool’s joke (a staff working draft of the bill is dated April 1), but then I read John Fontana’s article here in Network World and realized these people are serious!

This bill is, admittedly, a working draft, so to some greater or lesser extent it is “flying a kite”. The bill has a lot more hurdles and scrutiny to face before it gets near to becoming law. That said, the fact that anyone would put forward such a bill is just marginally this side of insane.

Here’s the really contentious things the bill proposes: In Section 18, (4) it says the president “may declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the limitation or shutdown of Internet traffic to and from any compromised Federal government or United States critical infrastructure information system or network”. Section 18, (6) adds, the president “may order the disconnection of any Federal government or United States critical infrastructure information systems or networks in the interest of national security”.


COLLINS: The czarina of cyberspace?



Not content with nationalizing health care, President Barack Obama is now providing home medical care to Americans directly from the White House. His main rule seems to be that a little irony is good for your blood.

(And lookey here… someone cut from the same cloth as Rockefella crying out for the KILL SWITCH again.  Amazing!  Old Savior himself… Barack Hussein Obama. Calling for it on Capital Hill again in 2011.  Again, rest assured, it already existed.  They are talking semantics.  Just the public declaration of the right to use it.  As if he would care if he had the right or not.)

So it was that last month, even as the president was forthrightly denouncing the Egyptian government for cutting off its citizens’ access to big parts of the Internet, his flunkies on Capitol Hill were preparing a bill that would allow Obama to do exactly the same thing here.

Virtually at the same moment Obama was demanding that Egypt stop monkeying with Facebook and Twitter, Maine’s imitation-Republican Sen. Susan Collins announced that she plans to reintroduce a bill that died in Congress last year.

Collins gave the bill a smiley-face name, the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act. Internet geeks, about the only people who’ve noticed what the government is up to, prefer to call it the Kill-Switch Bill, because that’s what it would do: Give the president the authority to turn off the Internet whenever he pleases.

The bill (assuming Collins follows through on her announced plan to keep it substantially the same as the one she sponsored previously) would give the president the right to declare “a national cyber emergency” and seize authority over any part of the Internet he decides is “vital” to the “economic security, public health or safety of the United States, any state, or any local government.”

And just in case that’s not broad enough, the bill also allows him to snatch anything the White House deems “appropriate.”

But this is America, dammit, so the bill includes safeguards for our liberties. The president can only grab stuff for four months at a time. And while the bill says his designations on which parts of the Internet are “vital” are not subject to judicial review, he will have the advice of an enormous new cyberspace bureaucracy presided over by one of our most civil-liberties-sensitive agencies . . . the airport-gropers of Homeland Security.

Collins gets mighty miffed if anybody mentions her bill in the same breath as Egypt.

“The steps the Mubarak government took last week to shut down Internet communications in Egypt were, and are, totally wrong,” she told reporters. “His actions were clearly designed to limit internal criticisms of his government.”

Obama, on the other hand, is a nice guy, so we don’t have to worry about it.

But the arguments in favor of the bill put forth by Collins’s allies were not entirely reassuring.

A staffer on the Senate’s Homeland Security committee, for instance, said the bill was necessary in case the White House learned of a cyber attack on “the system that controls the floodgates to the Hoover Dam.”

That sounds reasonable, unless you know that (1) the Hoover Dam is operated by a government agency, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, so the White House doesn’t need any additional authority to protect it, and (2) the computers that control the dam’s floodgates aren’t connected to the Internet. Then it sounds like a power grab.

Even more ominous was an interview given last year by Collins’s supporter, Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

“We need the capacity for the president to say, Internet Service Provider, we’ve got to disconnect the American Internet from all traffic coming in from another foreign country,” Lieberman told CNN. “Right now, China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in a case of war. We need to have that here, too.”   (of course the war in reference here could very well be the war against the American People. )

China? China is now our model for balancing civil liberties and national security?

China, which has erected what the cyberworld calls the Great Firewall to block Facebook, Twitter and YouTube?

What’s next? Taking economic advice from North Korea? Looking to Saudi Arabia for leadership on women’s suffrage?

Bill Gates once said the Internet is the town square for tomorrow’s global village. Better make that the Tiananmen Square, Bill.


New Legislation Would Stop White House From ‘Unplugging’ Telecom

1:00 PM

Bipartisan legislation introduced in the House and Senate last week aims to reduce executive branch power over telecommunications and the internet by preventing the president from using emergency powers to shut those services down.

(So, here they are admitting that by 2020, the President of the US, HAS THE POWER!  Even thought they laugh at truthers and DENY, DENY, DENY… that the power exists.  They KNOW it does, and that is why they are seeking to curb it.  But, wait a minute… weren’t they the ones working to get that power established?)

The Unplug the Internet Kill Switch Act of 2020 would strike a portion of Section 706 in the Communications Act of 1934 giving the executive office full control over communications when a president deems necessary “in the interest of national security and defense.” Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Reps. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, and Thomas Massie, R-Ky., are leading the bill in their respective chambers.

“If you give government an inch, it takes ten miles, and this has been vividly illustrated by the surveillance state’s overreaches in a time of seemingly endless war,” Sen. Paul said of the legislation. “No president from either party should have the sole power to shut down or take control of the internet or any other of our communication channels during an emergency, and I urge Congress to follow our lead and unite to pass this bipartisan legislation.”

The Communications Act of 1934 – which established the Federal Communications Commission – is alarming the bill sponsors because law’s communications “kill switch” provisions could be applied to emails, text messages, the internet, and other telecommunications if a president chooses to invoke the war power authority. Striking this provision, the lawmakers explained, also would help curb government surveillance and control of communications channels.

“Our legislation would fix a WWII-era law that gives the president nearly unchallenged authority to restrict access to the internet, conduct email surveillance, control computer systems and cell phones,” Rep. Gabbard explained. “No president should have the power to ignore our freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and violate our civil liberties and privacy by declaring a national emergency.”

S. 4646 has been referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and H.R. 8336 is heading to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.



Home/WaterCooler/Russia, China Want Their Own Internet

Russia wanted its own Internet as early as 2017, and now China is developing its own version of the Internet. It won’t be compatible with today’s world’s standards.

In addition to national security threats to all countries, a side question arises: Should countries with free media outlets report news rebuttals by government officials from dictatorial nations like China and Russia? After all, how accurate, honest, and fair, can those rebuttals be when an independent, free media doesn’t exist there to assess the veracity of those claims?

Who would trust the Kremlin with an Internet under its direct control? After all, the Russians have already been known to engage in hacking governments, think tanks, universities, and private companies in order to steal IP, interfere with elections, and discredit low-profile dissidents. (Those with high profiles are simply poisoned.)

Most of the hacking is done by Russian groups APT29, which is affiliated with GRU (Russian military intelligence), and Turla, which has been linked with FSB (the successor of the KGB).

As for China, Cai Xia, a former professor at China’s elite Central Party (CCP) School, reported that, “The CCP is using epidemic prevention as an excuse to increase high-tech surveillance of people. They can imprison you for any little thing.” She added: [China’s president Jinping] Xi has made the world an enemy.”

As mentioned aboveRussia announced plans to develop its own Internet in 2017, and in December, began testing what it calls Runet. It also began lobbying the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) to adopt it.

The Chinese Internet version, called “New IP,” has been developed jointly by Huawei, Futurewi, China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom, all Telcos controlled by the Chinese government.

According to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), China’s New IP is duplicating the work already done by the Internet Society (an American nonprofit organization that provides leadership in Internet-related standards) (One of those NGOs that are working to undermine world governments and override legislation.). In addition, the European Commission, IETF, and RIPE (the regional Internet registry for Europe, West Asia, and the former USSR) all agree that the New IP is a way for China to censor domestic communications and to crush websites when it wants to. In addition, it allows China to prevent new software and technology from entering the system without government approval.

Currently, Chinese Internet traffic is centralized through the “three Cs” — China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom. China also uses its Great Firewall to block access to sites like Google, Facebook, and Twitter. It requires companies to store data within the country, as well.

Implied in both the Russian and Chinese push for their own IPs is that, from the experience that the countries have garnered from hacking Western democracies, both Russia and China are well aware of the weaknesses of the Internet and that both Runet and New IP offer more protection from domestic and international interferences.

Unsurprisingly, online reports of issues with Moscow’s mobile internet on two recent Saturdays—27 July and 3 August have now been attributed to actions by the country’s law enforcement agencies. Unsurprising because on those same days, mass protests were held in the center of the city. The city’s three main network operators—MTS, MegaFon and VimpelCom—explained this was due to “overcrowding.” But the suspicion was that it was something more nefarious than that.

Back in April, Moscow’s CIO Eduard Lysenko told me that the city’s goal is to “use technology to provide citizens with better services.” Clearly, that goal diminishes if those citizens are protesting against President Vladimir Putin. Almost 700 people were arrested in the protests on August 3, as thousands of demonstrators came face to face with heavy-handed police tactics and with hundreds of officers flooding the city.

BBC Russia claims to have seen an internal letter to call center employees in one of those operators that substantiates suspicions that the mobile internet was deliberately jammed by the city’s authorities. “Colleagues,” the letter says, “in the Presnensky and Basmanny districts and in the center of Moscow, a number of base stations are disabled at the request of law enforcement agencies.”

The letter added that this information was not to be publicly disclosed, there would be a subterfuge instead. “The company does not recognize the presence of an incident in these areas of Moscow.” Customers asking what had impacted their internet were to be told “there were no difficulties in providing services on the part of the company.”   (Nothing to see here folks…just keeping moving…)

The disruption began as the protests were about to start; voice calls were unaffected but the mobile internet ceased to function.

So, now you are beginning to get the picture.  Now that EVERYONE is dependent on the internet for everything… and will be even more so once the cutoff cash, the governments of the world intend to use that POWER to CONTROL US.  They will threaten and/or just pull the switch, whenever and wherever anyone dares to disobey or complain.  Not convinced yet… here is another example.

China Cuts Off Internet Access After Riots | PCWorld

 China blocked Internet access in Xinjian province and shut down Twitter nationwide on Monday after ethnic riots in the western province killed at least 140 people. Twitter became inaccessible in China around 3 p.m. local time Monday, leaving users with a time-out page. Outside of China the service is buzzing with news of the riots. However, some dramatic footage made it out of the country and onto YouTube.

Russia’s Internet, already dim, gets darker

Censorship and new laws block online information and stifle digital life

Illustration by Sofiya Voznaya

The Russian internet is becoming less free, more isolated from the rest of the world, and on a path resembling countries with strictly controlled online spaces like in Iran.

A recent report by a leading digital rights group in Russia paints a bleak picture of state censorship of the country’s internet. The research, published by Roskomsvoboda, a Moscow-based group that advocates for internet freedom and the protection of digital rights, examined instances in which ordinary Russians found access to the internet limited by the authorities. It counted nearly 440,000 incidents in 2019 where individuals faced some kind of barrierwhen trying to access information online.

Obstacles included websites that had been blocked by the government, or the stifling of information by other measures, such as banning people from using the internet and mobile data connections.

The report highlights concerns from digital freedoms experts that Russia is building its own parallel internet.Around the world, a number of countries are attempting to control online spaces, with China’s so-called “Great Firewall” the most obvious example.

According to the report, published in February, the number of internet pages banned by Russia’s state communications watchdog, Roskomnadzor, jumped from over 161,000 in 2018 to nearly 273,000 in 2019. During the same period, the number of state-sponsored cyber attacks against individuals rose from 20 to 32.

According to Stanislav Shakirov, Roskomsvoboda’s co-founder and technical director, Russia’s crackdown on the internet begins with communication providers. “Cross-border channels have become under state control over the past 10 years,” said Shakirov. “The key players in the operator’s market, which are communication providers and data center owners, are now controlled by the authorities.”

The report highlights the government’s intensifying crackdown on the internet. Russia has introduced tough internet laws in the past five years, requiring search engines to delete some results, messaging services to share encryption keys with security services, and social networks to store their user data on servers within Russia.  (This all sounds too familiar to truthers and alternate News sources here in the good old USA who are already suffering from many of these same tactics.)

Internet service providers are also required to install equipment utilizing a method of data processing known as deep packet inspection (DPI), which can identify the source of traffic and filter content. In practice, DPI will allow Roskomnadzor to be more effective at blocking sites.

Deep packet inspection is often used by authoritarian governments to surveil its citizens and censor content deemed unlawful. According to Wired, DPI is the “equivalent of opening up letters in a postal depot and reading the contents.

Russia’s DPI equipment was scheduled to begin tests on March 20, but has been indefinitely postponed, owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

While DPI can be effective, users can avoid being surveilled by cloaking their internet activity behind a virtual private network for around $10 a month. Russia banned VPNs in 2017,but the law was only enforced last year when Roskomnadzor placed 10 popular VPN services on its blacklist.

In response, Roskomsvoboda launched a website listing currently available VPNs.

Gustaf Björksten, chief technologist at Access Now, says that the future of the internet in Russia might more closely resemble that of Iran, where the government has been able to increase control over its digital infrastructure and even shut down internet connectivity when protests were taking place.

“Iran has spent the past few years systematically replacing all reliance on global internet infrastructure with their own sovereign internet stack,” said Björksten. “Iran’s national internet infrastructure is still connected to the global internet, but at any moment they can cut it off at the international gateways, and the entire internet stack will continue to function within Iran’s borders. This is the path Russia proposes to follow.“

A Russian “kill switch” for the internet already exists. During protests last August, the nation’s three main internet providers – MeganFon, MTS and VimpelCom – all disconnected their users from mobile data.  Experts from the Internet Protection Society, a Russian NGO, described the incident as “the first state-owned shutdown in Moscow’s history.”

Russia’s policing of the internet also extends to promoting access to websites considered to be “socially important.”Earlier this month, the Ministry of Communications signed an order to launch the Accessible Internet project, providing a free network that offers access to 391 approved websites.

The list includes search engines and the websites of government agencies and banks. Also featured are pro-government newspapers and the social media platforms VK and Odnoklassniky. Foreign social media networks like Facebook and Twitter or media considered critical of Russia are not offered.  A test phase of the project runs until July 1.

According to Alena Epifanova, a program officer at the German Council on Foreign Relations and the author of a paper on Russia’s internet laws, Russian web users will eventually tire of trying to access blocked sites. “They will simply be so severely disadvantaged that users would leave them and insteadapparently voluntarily — enter a network in which the state can exercise a greater social control.”spa


Iran’s Own Internet


NEWS BRIEF The World Wide Web is nearing its end in Iran.

The country announced Sunday it had completed the first of three stages that will eventually set up a “national internet”—an intranet, really—controlled by the government, with all of its servers in the country. Iranians will only have access to content, services, and applications that are based in Iran.

Iran already blocks access to some overseas-based social media, news outlets, and online stores. A national internet would tighten the government’s grip on online content even more. The BBC adds:

The government says the goal is to create an isolated domestic intranet that can be used to promote Islamic content and raise digital awareness among the public.

It intends to replace the current system, in which officials seek to limit which parts of the existing internet people have access to via filters—an effort [Iranian Communications and Information Technology minister Mahmoud] Vaezi described as being “inefficient.”

Officials say a national internet would reduce cyber security risks. But human-rights activists say it would further isolate the country from the outside world and quash freedom of speech online.

Iran’s national internet project has been in the works since 2006. It was scheduled to be completed in two years but has been plagued with delays and rising costs. The second phase, which introduces video services, is expected in February. The final stage, which will add further services, including for companies involved in international business, is expected in March.



After years of centralizing internet control, Iran pulled the plug on connectivity for nearly all of its citizens.

AMID WIDESPREAD DEMONSTRATIONS over rising gasoline prices, Iranians began experiencing internet slowdowns over the past few days that became a near-total internet and mobile data blackout on Saturday. The government is apparently seeking to silence protesters and quell unrest. So how does a country like Iran switch off internet access to a population of more than 80 million? It’s not an easy thing to do.

Though some countries, namely China, architected their internet infrastructure from the start with government control in mind, most don’t have a central set of levers they can pull to influence countrywide access to content or connectivity. But regimes around the world, including those in Russia and Iran, have increasingly been retrofitting traditional private and decentralized networks with cooperation agreements, technical implants, or a combination to give officials more influence. In countries like Ethiopia, Venezuela, and Iraq, along with disputed regions like Kashmir, government-led social media blocking and more extensive outages have become the norm.

“This is the most wide-scale internet shutdown that we’ve seen in Iran,” says Adrian Shahbaz, research director at the pro-democracy group Freedom House, which tracks internet censorship and restriction worldwide. “It’s surprising to see the Iranian authorities block all internet connections rather than only international internet connections, because the latter is a tactic that they’ve used in the past. It could mean they are more fearful of their own people and worry that they cannot control the information space amidst these economic protests.”

The process to block an entire country’s internet connectivity depends on the set-up. Places like Ethiopia that have relatively limited internet proliferation typically have just one government-controlled internet service provider, perhaps alongside some smaller private ISPs. But all usually gain access from a single undersea cable  (wait a minute…what?  They are admitting that the internet access DOES NOT COME FROM SATELLITES… but from underground and underwater CABLES!!j)or international network node, creating upstream choke points that officials can use to essentially block a country’s connectivity at its source.

The more extensive and diverse a country’s infrastructure, though, the more involved the digital blackout process becomes. Alp Toker, the director of nonpartisan connectivity tracking group NetBlocks, says it took Iranian authorities about 24 hours to completely block the nation’s inbound and outbound traffic—leaving it hovering at about 5 to 7 percent of typical connectivity levels. Top politicians, like the country’s supreme leader, Seyed Ali Khamenei, have still been using Twitter and other public platforms.

In a country without one or two obvious digital bottlenecks, authorities must coordinate with multiple telecoms, including ISPs and mobile data providers, to cut access. And they also need to overcome redundancies and algorithmic protections meant to make networks resilient in case of unintentional outages or bugs. For example, the internet is designed with failsafe properties that allow it to sort of quarantine and route around areas of a network that are suffering connectivity issues or other instability. NetBlocks’ Toker says that perhaps Iran’s internet slowdowns in the lead-up to the full outage were the result of telecoms working on behalf of the government to essentially defeat their own system reliability protections. (And isn’t that what we have been experiencing in recent years.  Unexplainable outages of areas large and small across the nation? )

“To shut down a country’s access to internet, it takes a lot of preparations. We are talking about software and hardware layers, and also regulatory frameworks,” says Lukasz Olejnik, an independent security and privacy adviser and research associate at the Center for Technology and Global Affairs at Oxford University. “The more networks and connections a country has, the more difficult it is to cut access for good. And the question also is whether you want to cut in-country network access, too, in addition to flows between the country and outside world.”

Increasingly over the past decade, the Iranian regime has focused on building out a centralized national “intranet.” That allows it to provide citizens with web services while policing all content on the network and limiting information from external sources. Known as the “National information network” or SHOMA, the effort has centered on the state-owned Telecommunication Company of Iran, which is run by a number of former government officials. In the process of establishing this internal web, the Iranian regime has taken more and more control over both public and private connectivity in the name of national security.

That means Iran is also able to exert pressure even on ostensibly independent internet providers. NetBlocks’ Toker points out, for example, that his organization saw three Iranian mobile data carriers shut off seemingly in unison on Saturday. Still, he and other analysts emphasize that it’s difficult to know exactly what has happened or why Iran’s networks are specifically designed the way they are.

“In Iran, convincing operators probably isn’t the most challenging task, because all of this has been normalized to a certain degree,” says Toker. “But there’s no indication of a national kill switch in this case. Around the world it seems like there’s a sort of playbook that’s developing, though.”

That playbook chiefly involves the ability, one way or the other, to send the command for ISPs to shut it all down. It’s a more involved request than blocking a specific platform like Twitter, another popular approach among Iran and other oppressive governments. That takes selective filtering rather than a near-total blackout. As of Sunday evening local time, Iran’s internet was still down.

The United Nations has explicitly identified government-led internet shutdowns and censorship as a human rights violation. But numerous governments have been pushing the limits of how much they can curtail connectivity without facing reprisals from the international community. And just this week, United States UN representatives and others warned that a Russian-led cybercrime resolution that will face a UN vote Monday is really a treaty that could be interpreted to allow government internet control. Even countries like the United Kingdom have started developing and passing national security regulations that could allow a government to block an ISP.

But Freedom House’s Shahbaz points out that this creep toward increasing internet censorship is more complicated in practice than just flipping a switch. He adds that widespread internet shutdowns don’t always have a repressive regime’s desired effect. For better or worse, an internet blackout limits the government’s ability to conduct digital surveillance on citizens. And it can foster camaraderie among citizens that can turn into even more powerful protest movements.  (I highly doubt it will limit surveillance, it hasn’t hindered China at all. )

“This is a very blunt attempt to control the information space in Iran by simply just denying individuals access to all information,” Shahbaz says. “And it’s not going to work. Information is going to continue to spread by other means. And, actually, sometimes shutting off the internet just drives people to the streets.”


India’s internet shutdown is the longest in history

Journalist, Global Affairs

Kashmiri journalists hold placards and laptops during a protest against India’s internet blockade, Srinagar, Indian Kashmir, November 12, 2019.

The Indian government’s shutdown of the Internet in Kashmir is the longest in history, surpassing the previous blocks of Myanmar and China.

The crackdown was ordered to prevent Kashmiri citizens from receiving and spreading information critical of the Narendra Modi government’s decision to strip Kashmir, a disputed volatile Muslim region in the mountains between Pakistan and India. According to reports, the Indian authorities have arrested opposition politicians and members of civil society, …

India’s Internet Shutdowns Draw Praise From at Least One Country: China

The article in the People’s Daily stated that “India did not hesitate to shut down the internet in these two states to cope when there is a significant threat to national security”.

New Delhi: China’s state-run mouthpiece on Wednesday published an article defending the country against western criticism of cyber censorship by pointing towards India’s record for shutting down internet services for security reasons.

China has been accused of maintaining a high level of censorship over its internet services, with Chinese citizens not being allowed to access certain applications, visit banned websites or post about certain topics on their indigenous social media websites.

The article in People’s Daily titled India’s internet shutdown shows normal practice for sovereign countries uses internet shutdown in Assam and Meghalaya to defend against US criticism of Chinese orders to stop all internet services in the volatile province of Xinjiang.

India holds the world record for the highest number of internet shutdowns ordered by the government. When India changed the constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir in August, the entire state’s internet services were blocked. Several measures have been reverted, but full services have yet to be restored.

Similarly, Assam’s internet services had been restricted when protests against the Citizenship Amendment Bill broke out last week.

The Chinese writer claimed that the US has always seen India as an example of democracy in Asia since the 1950s. It also cited the US administration’s Indo-Pacific Strategy report that identified India as a geopolitical partner as both shared “common ideology and similar political system”.

The article also noted that India is also the world’s second-largest internet market with 650 million connected users.  (So, GOVERNMENT CONTROL AND CENSTORSHIP HAS NOT HINDERED CONTINUED USAGE.)

Noting that Assam and Meghalaya alone had 32 million netizens, the author stated, “India did not hesitate to shut down the internet in these two states to cope when there is a significant threat to national security”.

The author then lamented that when China had adopted a similar strategy in Xinjiang, it was sharply criticised by mainstream media in the US and Europe.

“The internet shutdown in India has once again proved that the necessary regulation of the internet is a reasonable choice of sovereign countries based on national interests, and a natural extension of national sovereignty in cyberspace,” said the article.

The Chinese author then sought to argue that the West was “squeezing the sovereignty of developing countries”.

The internet cannot be independent of national sovereignty. It is a routine operation for governments all over the world to manage the internet based on national interests, including shutting down the internet in a state of emergency,” said the article.

African governments use Internet shutdowns to silence opposition more and more —what can people do?

What would you do if your government decided to intentionally shut down your access to the Internet? Millions of people around the world have had to answer this question time and time again over the past few years, as government-mandated Internet blackouts are on the rise.

Less than a month into 2019, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon and Zimbabwe have experienced government crackdowns on Internet connections.

From 2016 to 2018, 371 separate cases of Internet shutdowns were documented around the world. More than half of them occurred last year alone, according to international non-profit organisation Access Now.

Authorities have used a number of reasons to justify the blackouts, including public safety, national security and stopping the dissemination of rumors and illegal content.

However, advocacy groups investigating governmental tendencies to exert control over the flow of information don’t buy it. They claim it has more to do with silencing opposition movements and protests and trying to limit political instability.

“They harm everyone: businesses, emergency services, journalism, human rights defenders, and demonstrators. They don’t help victims or restore order,” Access Now’s website reads.

What countries have resorted to Internet shutdowns in the past?

In the past few weeks, several African governments have turned to partial or complete shutdowns in attempts to control the public discussion.

Sudan doubled down on social media amid widespread anti-government protests, with Access Now and the #KeepItOn coalition calling on network operators to fight back against state pressure — but it wasn’t the only African country to do so.

Zimbabwean authorities were quick to gag social media — including Facebook and Whatsapp — as soon as civil unrest over rising fuel prices spread in Harare and other major cities, and the DRC also ordered a full blackout following recent elections.

The first official Internet shutdown in Africa happened in February 2007 in Guinea, when former president Lansana Conte blocked access to the country’s four main Internet service providers.

Prior to that moment, authorities simply resorted to arresting journalists or shutting down specific websites. But the foundations for the practice were really laid out by former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak in 2011, after he cut access to all Internet and SMS services amid escalating tensions.

From 2016 to 2018 alone, Africa witnessed 46 Internet shutdowns, weighing on the freedom of expression of citizens as well as on the countries’ finances. Some of them only lasted a few hours, others went on for days. In the anglophone regions of Cameroon, where the Internet was inaccessible for citizens for 230 days between January 2017 and March 2018.

Chad, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Somaliland, Algeria, Togo, Cameroon, Gambia, Uganda, Gabon, Algeria, Morocco, Lybia, Tunisia, and Algeria have all cracked down on their citizens’ access to the Internet in the past.

How did citizens react to Internet or social media shutdowns?

“People always find a way”, Zimbabwean analyst Alexander Rusero told Euronews.

Faced with an Internet shutdown after protests over rising fuel prices escalated, many of his fellow citizens relied on VPNs, downloadable private networks that enable users to send and received data across shared or public networks. “But it doesn’t work for everyone”, Rusero pointed out. “Usually the ones in Harare, at the centre of the country, manage to”.

The analyst was quick to underline the issues behind similar crackdowns. “People look for alternatives and turn to gossip”, he explained: “During the Internet blackout there were a lot of lies and rumors — they spread faster than you would believe. Media relies on social media, and so do critical opinion leaders. Outside those platforms, fake news manifest”.

Jean-Hubert Bondo, a journalist from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, doesn’t believe the problems end here.

“Many Congolese families live off their small cybercafés. Also, we are in a country where there are not enough physical libraries. Students and researchers use the Internet to research their work at the university. Young people animate pages on Facebook and WhatsApp”, he told Euronews. “To deprive us of the Internet is to take us back to antiquity”.

As for the VPNs Rusero mentioned — the most common ways to avoid Internet censorship worldwide — Bondo said that, during the latest shutdown, they failed to work.

“We were totally cut off from the world”, he said. “Some of us were forced to move to neighbouring countries, like Rwanda, Congo-Brazzaville, and Zambia to get a connection. Only the major institutions and international organisations had their Wifi connection”.

In response to what is being perceived as a violation of human rights, Bondo reported that several Congolese civil society organisations have now lodged a complaint against the main telecommunication companies.

In Uganda, a crackdown on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, and mobile money apps in February 2016 as citizens were heading to the polls sparked a legal case that will be discussed in court in February 2019.

“Shutdowns may not silence people, but they do hinder communication”, said Ugandan blogger Ruth Aine Tindyebwa.

“So many people were inconvenienced — but the Social Media Elite sti


Alexander Lukashenko has cut off entire population’s internet to try to stifle election dissent

As he fights for his political survival, Alexander Lukashenko has taken a big gamble by cutting off the internet across most of Belarus.

Belarusians seeking to protest against his government have been mostly cut off from the outside world: mobile internet has been throttled and popular messaging apps have been disabled, leaving demonstrators scrambling to find wifi connections and working VPNs or proxies to get online and then sharing what news they can find.

The internet blackout, which Lukashenko hopes will disrupt the protests against him for mass vote-rigging in last week’s presidential elections, is a rare example in modern Europe of government voluntarily knocking its entire country offline to stifle dissent.

The lack of internet has left protesters in an information vacuum. Popular independent news sites, including Tut.By and Naviny, have been kept largely offline since election day and television news is dominated by the government. (Sounds just like home…USA)

“This long-lasting internet blockage is unprecedented,” said Katsiaryna Shmatsina, a political analyst at the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies, noting that the internet was being blocked for longer and more aggressively than at protests in previous years. On Tuesday, there were unconfirmed rumours that the country could cut phone and internet traffic entirely.

With people unable to reach one another, protests have largely relied on popular bloggers on Telegram channels, some anonymous and located outside the country, who suggest meeting points for demonstrations and share videos of protests and breaking news, some of it unverified, that manages to filter through the blockade.

The largest is Nexta, which has more than 1,151,000 subscribers, and has been a key clearing house for videos from this week’s protests and for instructions to protesters. On Tuesday evening, it told its readers to meet at 7pm in small groups of less than 20 and to occupy the streets. “Paralyse the city!”

Staff and allies of Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, the opposition candidate for president who has said she will not recognise the results due to massive vote fraud, said that the shutdown had made it virtually impossible to coordinate action.

They’ve done this all specially so that people can’t post information and talk about what’s happening in Belarus,” said Veronika Tsepkalo, an ally of Tikhanovskaya. During a trip to the city on Monday, she said, she had been unable to reach either Tikhanovskaya or Maria Kalesnikava. “There’s no internet – you need to go through a VPN. Even the phones barely work.”

The shutdown has disrupted normal businesses, from Belarus’s thriving IT sector to tourism. A receptionist at one of the international chain hotels in Minsk laughed when asked if there was internet at the hotel. “No, there’s no internet in the whole country,” she said.

According to Yana Goncharova of the Minsk-based Human Constanta NGO, the government practised throttling internet traffic as early as July, twice cutting traffic to and from the country at night. Authorities were also targeting popular VPNs, she said, as well as the popular proxy service Psiphon.

The internet blackout was enacted at the level of Beltelecom, the national telecommunications company, and the country’s National Traffic Exchange Centre, she said. Mobile operators have apologised for the service slowdowns but said they took place due to “reasons outside of our control”.

A source at one Belarusian mobile operator told the Guardian: “We’re in shock from what is happening. It’s going to continue until approximately 14 August. We’ve simply been told that this is what’s happening.” Lukashenko has blamed the outages on distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks from abroad, without presenting evidence.

The blackout has left channels on Telegram, a messenger app that has already outwitted a Russian attempt to block it, as the main way for protesters and the media to share information. Along with Nexta, which is based in Poland, are the Belamova channel, which has 340,00 subscribers, and the My Country Belarus channel.

The bloggers share photos and videos from protests, leaks about vote-tampering from the elections, and help coordinate demonstrations, including by setting the times and places where protesters should meet. Readers can also submit their own videos – if they manage to get online.

 Belarus election: protesters met with rubber bullets, water cannon and flash grenades – video report

“So far I would say the major source of information, some of which is unconfirmed and sometimes turn out to be unreliable, are those Telegram channels, such as Nexta, and then some major independent media outlets or TV channels like Belsat – they also post on Telegram,” said Shmatsina.

In a Minsk apartment near a protest site on Monday night, protesters and journalists huddled on the floor as police shone flashlights through the windows.

One protester opened Telegram and found a video that purported to show Russian riot police having entered the city. The video has since been judged fake.

“That’s it. Lukashenko has made a deal with Putin and he’s sent him some help,” he said. “He’s given up the country.”

“He doesn’t care about the country,” another person said. “But he’ll never share power with the Russians or with anyone else.”

HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS POST.  IT IS AN ALERT THAT THERE COULD BE A MAJOR SHUT DOWN/KILL SWITCH situation HERE IN THE US, sometime in the very near future.    Below is all the information available on it at this time.
Nation / News Desk   11 November 2020 Hits: 9964
I have received the following Intel from a US Department of Defense Contractor.  It appears plans are in the works to shut off the Internet and make certain first Responders and military will all have access to their private Internet known as “FirstNet.”  – Subscribers Only —

Here is the communication I received from the DoD contractor:

I just got off a conference call and the subject of FirstNet came up.

FirstNet is the military’s private internet. First responders can also access the system. It’s like a backup to the internet for the military and for communications should they go down.

A scenario for 10 days with no internet or cell service was mentioned. No internet or cell service. Meaning total blackout of communications. Then they went to a completely different topic.

All I know. I have no other details as to why.  Not sure what they think may happen, if it being intentional to stop news. Your guess is as good as mine. But my immediate thoughts were Big Tech taking it down or mass arrests happening. Something like that; I dunno.

Thought it was worthy to pass along to you. Interested if anyone else is hearing anything like this or if anything is happening out there with cell towers, ISPs, stuff like that.

INTERNET KILL SWITCH SLATED FOR ACTIVATION – “FirstNet” For Military & Police is Active

I have received the following Intel from a US Department of Defense Contractor. It appears plans are in the works to shut off the Internet and make certain first Responders and military will all have access to their private Internet known as “FirstNet.” – Subscribers Only —

A warning that the Internet and phone systems might be shut down for 10 days. Q has referred to this as the “10 Days of Darkness”. So we were all forewarned.

Here are my thoughts on this:

I think it might be related to this:

HUGE: Trump fires deep state Defense Secretary Mark Esper, indicating a likely PLAN for MILITARY involvement in a Declaration of Insurrection

1) I’ve heard the Military has their own internet for national security reasons. Heard that many years ago. This FirstNet might be a 3rd set up, or it might be “it”.

2) I have also heard that at some point with the take down of the criminal elite, ALL Communications will be shut down: no tv, no internet, no phones.

Not sure why this is necessary, but I presume it has to do with the arrest of the criminal elite to catch them all off guard, so they can not warn each other etc. Marines swoop in, in the dead of night, power is down, so no alarm systems working, and they just go in and pick up the targets and take them directly to Prison, do not pass Go, do not collect $200, go directly to prison. (little joke here).

The Marines can be used to arrest “Enemy Combatants”. Anyone committing Treason or Sedition, is deemed an “Enemy Combatant”. “Enemy Combatants” lose their constitutional rights, and are tried in Military Tribunals. GITMO Prison has been greatly expanded, adding many more cells, and also many more court rooms, and lawyer conference rooms. In addition, Two Prison Barges, each with 500 prison cells, have already been docked at a new deep water port at GITMO. This whole place has been empty and waiting for their intended occupants.

1) Legal Explanation of “Enemy Combatants” & Military Tribunals:

2) Judge Kavanaugh Hearing Where Senator Lindsey Graham Grills Kavanaugh re: Military Tribunals…….(this was a real clown show if you recall, but you could hear a pin drop during this line of question!)

Anyway I have heard something like this WILL happen. I heard this long before the violent riots started.

Now we KNOW that the whole reason Lame Stream Media “Elected Biden”, is so the Commie useful idiots will go out and celebrate and have a gay old time, SO THAT, when the announcement is later made that after all the FRAUDULENT BALLOTS/VOTES have been discarded, TRUMP won by a landslide, and it is ANNOUNCED that Trump WON, the low IQ dumbed down useful idiot savages will go on the warpath!

This is going to piss off the commie useful idiots, who are so low IQ that they will assume something “fishy” is going on, and Trump is the one “stealing this election”. This will incite violent riots for sure, all across this nation.

Lets face it, ANYONE who believes the TV Networks can DECIDE who is and who is NOT President in a highly contested election, is dumber than a rock! I wonder if they even know about the Electoral College? They probably think it is an IVY League college some where back east.


So I think a full communications shut down might put a damper on violent riots and things, if the useful idiots can’t text each other nor email each other nor talk on the phone with each other. They won’t know what to do or what is going on. It would disrupt their ability organize locations to gather en mass to start their violence. They will be left in the dark, probably while the military gets into place everywhere.

I have also heard that about this same time (of the arrests), Trump will declare MARTIAL LAW … least in certain areas, prone to rioting.

Martial Law History in the USA in WW2 & Civil War:

Also at some point, that there will be an emergency text message sent out to everyone on their cell phones. This emergency broadcast text system was tested in Oct of 2018, for just this reason. This would fit with rolling out Martial Law, installing curfews. Notice the low IQ rioters prefer to do their dirty deeds under the cover of darkness. Military enforced curfews would stop all that. As I’ve said before, its one thing to riot, and loot, commit arson and commit murder when the police have all stood down. Its another thing to try to do all these things with a well trained soldier pointing a gun at your head, with live ammo in the gun. These are Communist Revolutionaries trying to over throw our gov’t, so they are committing TREASON too. The Penalty for TREASON is EXECUTION.

And, We all know the BEST thing in the entire WORLD would be to SHUT DOWN LYING LAME STREAM MEDIA PROPAGANDA! So taking out TV/Cable TV would be such a BLESSING to this PLANET!

I’ve also heard that at some point, there will be Live Streamed Real Time News Coming directly from the White House. Robert Trump (Donald’s recently deceased brother) confirmed that recently. He called it “Trump TV”, and asked if we were ready for it. HEY, ANYTHING is better than LYING LAME STREAM MEDIA PROPAGANDA! Bring it on! We are all so tired of LIES, and trying to guess what is going on, how refreshing to actually have the TRUTH revealed to us, real time, by the Good Guys! (Just an aside, I heard that Judge Jeanine has been FIRED from Fox News, I wonder if she will be part of this new news broadcast controlled by the White House??? Lets hope.)

Now that there is so much open talk about going in and dragging Trump out of the White House (a Coup D’etat by communist insurrectionists), such drastic actions (like shutting down all communications) may be necessary to thwart such outrageous plans. It would be essentially “cutting them off at the pass”, if you understand that old Western expression. It means cutting them off BEFORE they can DO ANY Harm at ALL!…..which is Great for “We The People”.

I have no idea what the order of things will be…..or exactly when it will all happen.

And yes, I have heard of the 10 days of darkness (communication darkness). We all heard it from Q. But I think it will be the Good Guys, Trump Team, the White Hats who are organizing all of this, and thus they will also restore all services when the event is finished. In this regard I’ve heard that Trump Team have had the US Military guarding our critical infrastructure 24/7. So if anything gets shut down, it will be the Good Guys doing it and doing it for a good reason.

Although the power might be cut at some of the criminal elite’s mansions/estates, to permit surprise entry by the Marines, I don’t believe the power will be cut for the rest of the nation. So if your power suddenly goes out, don’t panic, know that it is temporary, and it will be put back up again. (Rejoice, KNOWING what is REALLY going on! The long awaited ARRESTS!)

Remember Trump Team infiltrated ANTIFA/BLM several years ago, they know the plans for communist insurrection, violent riots. They know who the leaders are. Many of the Leaders of these useful idiots have already been arrested. I suspect that is why the 50 Day Siege Against the White House ……suddenly got called off in Sept, AFTER there were reports of Tents going up on street corners, intended to be used as ANTIFA/BLM Command Control Centers. Remember that all got called off, and no more tents, no riots, nothing happened. They all ran scared. I suspect the leaders setting up tents got arrested, and that put a damper things.

It might happen like this: Supreme Court decides that after all the fraud has been removed, that Trump indeed Won this Election. They will decide fast, knowing we would have a Constitutional Crisis on our hands, if they don’t. So the Decision is made, either communications are shut down immediately after that announcement, or maybe even before. Imagine the commie useful idiots still partying over Biden’s win, and suddenly all communication just gets shut down. No one knows what is going on. They don’t even know Trump is the new President……so they aren’t even mad. I don’t know how it will all play out…..but I do know its going to be GOOD! Its going to be MARVELOUS! Its going to be FANTASTIC!

Oh, one more thing, I have heard that they will be video taping/recording testimonies from the Military Tribunals, and THAT will be broadcast to the Whole Nation. Many people will be SHOCKED at just how Criminal the Criminal Elite really are. But I’ve heard that it is extremely important that everything is done by the book, according to the rule of law, and that ALL Americans be thoroughly enlightened. Some may end up in Hospitals with nervous breakdowns. But the truth will be broadcast to the world.

Anyway, the BIG take away here, is that it will be the GOOD GUYS doing all this, and they are doing it for VERY GOOD reasons, to save our nation from these commie thugs!

FEAR NOT!!! If Anything REJOICE!!!


Oh, I forgot to mention…..LAME STREAM MEDIA will ALL be ARRESTED TOO for TREASON!

They are just as guilty, especially with this recent stunt of Declaring Biden President, with no authority. Lame Stream Media has been Complicit IN ALL OF THESE Coup D’etat Plots since Trump won the election Nov 2016!

Remember the RICO Laws… takes down everyone who is a willing part of this Treason and Sedition.

I suspect that your local TV actors paid to read whatever is put in front of them to read on tv news, will not be deemed complicit in the Treason. Only those who knew or had reason to know they were committing treason and/or sedition during these past 4 years.

So Bye, Bye LYING Lame Stream Media! They will be GONE for GOOD!!!

I suspect THAT is the reason why Robert Trump said there will be what he called “Trump TV”, a live real time news broadcast from the White House.

Jim Acosta & Co will be rotting in a prison cell in GITMO.

So to fill this temporary “vacuum”, the news will be broadcast directly from the White House….this time broadcasting the truth!

What is the RICO Act & How Does it Work?


No sense in tipping off our enemies.

PS: I just thought of something. Better stock up on some cash, there won’t be internet banking for 10 days. I think cash will be king, not sure about checks either. Stores use the internet to verify whether a check is good, so with that verification process gone, they may not accept checks or credit cards or debit cards. Just speculating here, not sure.

Probably time to repost these too, while the net is still up:

This isn’t just “Election Fraud”… is “TREASON”.

INTERNET KILL SWITCH SLATED FOR ACTIVATION – “FirstNet” For Military & Police is Active

Is the internet kill switch about to be activated?

This came from Hal Turner, but there is another source as well.

These are just one person’s opinion


EMERGENCY – How it will go down.

So, based on what I know and a little bit of speculation I believe the following is about to go down.

1. The President is going to declare a National Emergency due to what will be referred to as an “active coup attempt” and activate his emergency powers. He very well might also invoke the Insurrection Act, that is to be seen.

2. The Federal government will activate the Emergency Alert System and other emergency media powers to take control of information dissemination by exercising legal control over all national media and take operational control of those organizations. The EAS permits direct to mobile device messages and they can not be stopped by law. The system is designed to deliver these messages even if the rest of the system is overloaded. In other words, the President can get messages directly to everyone that owns a mobile phone regardless of what the media tries to do.

3. There will be a number of arrests of mid and high level US Federal and State level officials that have been monitored during for period of time leading up to, during and post election. Their involvement is not speculation as direct evidence has been amassed during in a massive multi agency intelligence gathering operation, including the military whom worked directly with the NSA. This includes people in the House, Senate, DOJ, CIA, FBI, and Military.

4. There will be a number of arrests of individuals complicit in the coup attempt in a number of organizations such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, ABC and more. These people have conspired with individuals inside and outside of government to not only interfere with but guarantee the outcome of the election.

5. Players in governments outside of the US will be named directly, and evidence provided, to expose the direct influence and control they have via proxy in the United States and requests of governments for extradition will eventually come.

The election fraud was not only expected but the entire operation was allowed to execute. Monitoring was permitted under national security laws as a direct threat against the stability and security of the United States was in progress and therefore, it is all documented.

Emails, phone calls, direct in person meetings recorded, Internet traffic, internal government network(s) traffic, US Mail, FedEx/UPS, financial transactions — all these methods were monitored and/or intercepted at points and add to the information pool.

I was prompted to write this message because of another post I saw today regarding the Internet and CivComms going down for a period of 10 days. That can not be done as it would immediately bring everything to a halt, including the government (all of it from the bottom up) as nothing could operate. Even the financial system could not operate, it would all grind to a halt. That just can not happen.

HOWEVER… certain portions of the Internet absolutely will be taken offline (media & certain unnamed threats) combined with a wide seizure of computers and servers. Certain cities and areas will lose mobile service to prevent remote control/triggering of devices and to help prevent mob action. This will be how it will happen, not a system wide block, and will change in configuration almost hourly.

We are hours/days away from a storm of epic proportions. You know it is coming, everything you are watching is demonstrating the very system/individuals involved in this MAJOR CRIME, and that is exactly what it is a MAJOR conspiracy and crime, know what is coming and they are doing their best to do everything they can to stop it. This is internal panic presented with an external calm… but make no mistake there are some VERY VERY concerned people right now, and they should be. Anyone that was involved in the election fraud should be planning on a very long vacation.

The media is playing a major role in trying to get people to believe there was no fraud and that Trump is crazy and the one to blame. Well, they can do what they want but when that voice of deception is silenced via national security powers and the truth of the matter is released to the population in full, fully unfiltered and unmolested, this will quickly change to rage and anger and those responsible will no longer have ANYWHERE to hide.

Justice is coming and it will come hard and fast.


If you don’t think this could possibly happen… apparently CNBC thought it was possible on a global scale, in 2018.
