Mark Zuckerberg has sold close to 30 million shares of Facebook to fund an ambitious biomedical-research project, called the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, with a goal of curing all disease within a generation.

A less publicized component of the $5 billion program includes work on brain-machine interfaces, devices that essentially translate thoughts into commands. One recent project is a wireless brain implant that can record, stimulate, and disrupt the movement of a monkey in real time.

The Daily Mail reminds us from Feb. 8, 2017, that Zuckerberg was funding the development of mind-reading brain implants, when the Facebook billionaire pledged $50 million of his own money to combat deadly diseases around the world. When announced in 2017, the funds were to be spent by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, which works with a variety of projects to tackle illness.

The Daily Mail said another project funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub involved working to develop 3D imaging technology which can probe the 'deep structures of the brain' and is 'essential for unravelling neural activity'. Zuckerberg also has other divisions working on similar technology.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2018/12/30/california-womens-march-rally-canceled-over-concerns-that-it-would-be-overwhelmingly-white/

The Washington Post on Sunday said A Women’s March group has cancelled its January rally in Humboldt County, Calif., over concerns that its participants would be “overwhelmingly white.”

Organizers of the 2019 Eureka Women’s March, originally scheduled for Jan. 19, said in a statement that the decision came after numerous conversations with leading local activists and supporters of the march.

Census Bureau data from July shows that Humboldt County is about 74 percent non-Hispanic white. Eureka Women’s March organizers snubbed the Washington Post by not responding to an email or phone call Sunday morning requesting comment on the decision.

NBC News on Monday said pussy-hat organizers announced Friday that the Women’s March would not take place in Eureka, in Humboldt County, California, on Jan. 19 as previously planned due to issues of representation.

The decision was made after conversations with local organizers and supporters of the march, according to the statement, which was posted by Facebook user Beth Ann Wylie. Though the Eureka group does not appear to be an official chapter of Women’s March California, the post was met with a mix of responses. Some thanked the group for its decision, and others expressed frustration and called on organizers to change their minds.

A statement posted to the group's Facebook page on Monday said organizers were moving their focus toward an event on March 9 around International Women’s Day, "to ensure that the people most impacted by systems of oppression have an opportunity to participate in planning."

Meanwhile on anonymous chat boards in darker places of the web, one poster responded to the inability of pussy-hat activists to get their shit together by commenting:

>white people enable all this progressive bullshit

>white people now banned from said bullshit

What goes around, comes around. You deserve everything bad that happens to you.

NBC Connecticut on Dec. 29 reported that retail pet stores in California will only be able to sell kittens, rabbits, and puppies if they come from a rescue organization after a new state law goes into effect Tuesday.

With AB 485, California became the first state to implement such strict new rules on pet stores. Retailers are banned from selling live dogs, cats or rabbits unless the animal was obtained from a public animal control agency or shelter, humane society group, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals shelter or a rescue group that’s in a cooperative agreement with at least one private or public shelter.

Yahoo Finance on Monday reported that California's new law, AB 485 (banning the sale of non-rescue animals in retail pet stores), takes aim at so called "puppy mills," and other "high-volume" animal breeders, which breed animals for profit, with little consideration for their long-term physical and emotional health. It does not affect sales from private breeders, or from owner to owner, but under AB 485, retail pet stores must get their dogs, cats, and rabbits from a "public animal control agency or shelter, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals shelter, humane society shelter," or a rescue group that is "in a cooperative agreement with at least one private or public shelter." Any store found to be in violation of the law will be fined $500.

The San Diego Humane Society website told its readers that they were "celebrating another step forward for our state" with California's ban on selling puppy mill dogs in pet stores. The humane society said this model is already "used by the nation's largest pet retailers, Petco and PetSmart, providing greater visibility to shelter animals by getting them out of the shelter environment and into a public storefront, thus increasing their chance for adoption."

The website said California joins more than 230 cities, towns and counties across the U.S. that have passed pet store ordinances to take a stand against allowing cruelly-bred animals to be sold in their communities.

The SDHS said opponents of this bill believe that the new law punishes business owners who sell pets from reputable breeders or the breeders themselves. But SDHS said that’s not the case. According to the humane society, "This law supports local, responsible breeders who limit their total litters to no more than three per year. Ironically, in much of the United States, San Diego included, we’re actually running out of puppies, which is why we need responsible breeders."

The Common Sense Show on Saturday examined the likelihood of a monumental nuclear catastrophe in this country due to a take down of the power grid through an EMP, or electromagnetic pulse. The show warned that a planned grid down scenario is imminent, and the United Nations has already been "prepositioned to respond under the Kigali Principles which will allow the UN to move in and declare martial law."

The "Kigali Principles on the Protection of Civilians" are a non-binding set of pledges to implement certain best practices in peacekeeping. They were issued at the conclusion of the High-Level International Conference on the Protection of Civilians held in Rwanda on May 28 and 29, 2015.

The Common Sense Show noted the ominous intentions of the United Nations to subjugate America's authority as made public by the infamous globalist himself, Henry Kissinger, in an address to the Bilderberger meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992. Kissinger stated, "Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

CSS host Dave Hodges said though many will die following a prolonged grid down, the real proverbial kill shot is what could happen to this country's nuclear power plant industry. Hodges said, "If the following does occur, this marks the end of the US government, the Constitution and national sovereignty. It could very well mark the end of humanity as we presently understand it."

Hodges explained regulatory experts know that a power failure lasting for days involving the power grid connected to a nuclear plant, regardless of the cause, would most likely lead to a dangerous radioactive leak in at least several nuclear power plants.

STATION BLACKOUT FAIL-SAFE

A 2012 article from DecodedScience.org addresses the same question on whether a nuclear plant can shutdown safely following an EMP event. The article explained the threat is likely to occur when a high-altitude nuclear weapon is detonated, or through severe space weather such as a solar flare or Coronal Mass Ejection. Even a lightening strike can produce an electromagnetic pulse, and interrupt transmission of power.

According to the Decoded Science article, a power surge from an EMP, an oversupply of voltage that can last up to 50 microseconds, has the capability to destroy transformers, shutting down power transmission and reducing a power plant’s output to zero. With a nuclear plant, this issue can become serious.

But there is a fail-safe for nuclear power plants when they lose off-stie power. Should an event such as an EMP causes a station blackout, all US nuclear power plants are designed to withstand this event with no core damage, through the automatic start of the emergency diesels. After the start of emergency power, the automatic shutdown of the plant commences. Control rods are dropped into the core, while water is pumped into the reactor to reduce the heat. The fuel is encased in a primary and secondary containment structure designed to withstand a potential core melt, should the pumps stop and fuel become uncovered.

However, it may be problematic for nuclear power plants to supply enough emergency diesel fuel to continue the cooling operation in a prolonged station blackout. Depending on the size of the EMP and its effects, getting additional diesel to the plants in a timely manner may be difficult or impossible.

According to the Decoded Science article, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, through review and response to petitions for rulemaking, are reviewing potential effects of prolonged station blackouts for future action. But that was in 2012, and according to Hodges, regulators are still unprepared for a potential EMP attack that will render our nuclear plants helpless - along with American society as mass unrest develops into a reason for the UN to move in andPost too long.

NO REBUILDING CIVILIZATION

But the point is not the EMP. The point is the fact that any catastrophic event that hits mankind or a major nuclear power country would result in our extinction as reactors and High-Level Waste facilites would be unattended. No survivors, no preppers, no rebuilding civilization. Extinction in the absolute sense of the word. The point is that we have built a Doomsday machine right out Dr. Strangelove without realizing it. And very few people seem to grasp the severity of the situation. We have guaranteed our extinction. Nuclear reactors are the tip of the Iceberg. Within a week High-Level Waste facilites would go into meltdown. As opposed to reactors having say a few hundred tons of fuel on site, HLW sites can have thousands of tons of hot fuel in cooling ponds generating significant decay heat. So the approach at the moment is simple. It’s assumed no catastrophic event will occur. And the last time I checked, assumption is the mother of all screwups!

According to participants standing in line for a gun buyback, you would be surprised at the people turning in junk guns so they can get better ones. Even the police taking the guns laugh at the ridiculousness of this infantile buyback idea. The gun buyback program can be perceived as only one thing: Lefty virtue-signalling, and that is all.

The Washington Times on Dec. 19, reported how a Baltimore woman used a city gun buyback to 'upgrade to a better weapon'.

The Baltimore Police Department collected more than 500 firearms on Dec. 17, as part of a buyback program that pays residents anywhere between $25 to $500 for their unwanted weapons and high-capacity magazines. Mayor Catherine Pugh said the buyback is aimed at getting dangerous weapons off the streets, but at least one woman said she’s using the program to buy a bigger, better gun.

A woman by the name of Darlene told a local Fox affiliate that she turned in her 9 mm in order to "upgrade to a better weapon," adding that she hadn’t "quite decided" yet what that weapon would be.

Other residents, who spoke to the Fox affiliate, said they were turning in their old weapons for some quick cash, while others assumed they were supporting the city’s efforts to curb gun violence.

While gun buyback programs have risen in popularity in recent years, several national studies have found they're among the least effective ways to reduce crime. Undeterred by those studies, the Baltimore Mayor said, "There are all kinds of studies that say all kinds of different things. Our point here is, there are guns on the streets of our city. We are signaling folks out there, we don’t care if its grandpa's gun or your gun, we want it."

Now that says it all. Criminals are NOT going to turn their guns in, are they. But because liberals are ignorant, they do not understand this obvious point. Darlene is doing the right thing! She is gaming the gun buyback program, and she is making her game known. Liberals should be shitting their shorts!

OF WHAT USE IS A GUN UNFED?

Ammoland.com on Friday argued that the term "buyback" is an Orwellian propaganda term. You cannot "buyback" something you never owned in the first place. It should be called a gun turn-in.

The Shooting Sports website said gun turn-ins are a magnet for converting malfunctioning and problem firearms into cash. The author of the Ammoland article said he turned in a couple of beat up and malfunctioning .22 rifles for $100 each at the Phoenix turn-in a few years ago. They were missing a few parts, but could be made to fire, occasionally. He said he used the gift certificates to purchase cleaning supplies for his arsenal.

This makes practical sense. As Mahbub Ali told "Kim" in Rudyard Kipling's 1912 classic: "Of what use is a gun unfed?"

Ammoland.com said it is difficult to know how many of the old, broken, and unwanted guns will eventually be converted into new guns or more ammunition. Some certainly will be, but the effect on crime is negligible or non-existent, as noted by numerous academics.

Freakonomics.com had this to say about gun buybacks: "When it comes to gun buybacks, both the theory and the data could not be clearer in showing that they don’t work. The only guns that get turned in are ones that people put little value on anyway. There is no impact on crime. On the positive side, the "cash for clunkers" program is more attractive than the gun buyback program because, as long as they are being driven, old cars pollute, whereas old guns just sit there."

GET $500 FOR YOUR ROCKET LAUNCHER

The New York Post on Tuesday reported on the same Baltimore gun buyback program, saying a unloaded rocket launcher was among the more than 1,000 firearms turned in during recent gun buyback events.

The rocket launcher was traded for $500, and police have reached out to the military and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace its origin.

While it's very nice to get those rocket launchers off the street, some have questioned the program’s efficacy. However, interim commissioner Gary Tuggle says destroying guns that could be used in crimes is the city’s top priority.

But these gun buybacks are effective - at least for gun owners who want to upgrade their weaponry. Simply use the money from the buyback to get a bigger, better, gun. And progressives will help pay for it, too - with our tax money, of course. But still, progressives funding bigger, better, guns really does make my day! You feel like yelling at liberals, saying, "Hey, how stupid are you people." They think that criminals obey laws, own registered guns, and will comply with more stupid laws that only affect honest citizens. You got to love those looney tune progressives!

GUN BUYBACK FOR WATER PISTOLS, NERF BLASTERS

But the Left's obsession with taking your guns does not stop there. How about a buyback event for toy guns?

CNSNews.com reported Friday that a Long Island town offered a toy gun exchange to "Just Say No ... Even to Toy Guns!" For the third year in a row, the village of Hempstead, Long Island, encouraged boys and girls to exchange their toy guns for a different toy at Christmas as a way of "saying no to guns ... even toy guns."

Hempstead Village Mayor Don Ryan told local TV station WABC at the Dec. 13 event that, "Saying no to guns is important - even toy guns."

Village Trustee LaMont Johnson said, "The purpose is to offer a safe alternative to toy guns. We don’t want the kids playing with guns. Guns are dangerous."

At this year's exchange, 50 kids were invited to participate to bring in a toy gun and exchange it for an alternative toy. For kids who didn't have toy guns to exchange, the event's organizers provided them with water pistols and nerf blasters to turn in.

Yes, we must get those toy guns off the street, too! Now that's leadership! The murder rate should drop by at least .000001 percent. At least!

Remember, toy guns don't kill people; people with toy guns kill ... no, wait a second! Not even people with toy guns kill people! This tolerant village evidently has more than one idiot. This is social brainwashing at it's finest. Teach future liberals to be servile from a young age.

Many people are not awake on the Left's "Red Flag Laws" - maybe because they don't have the right information; maybe they're just not paying attention. Regardless, there's no reason to hand your guns over to government thugs who will surely come for the rest of us once they've taken as many guns from Americans as illegally as they can.

The gun-hating American Left has devised a new way to come after as many legally owned firearms as possible: Declare their owners mentally unstable and thus a threat to society.

So-called "Red Flag Laws" are currently springing up everywhere that Democrats have power. Such laws are improperly hyped as "common sense" ordinances aimed at improving "public safety." This, from the same party that would rather see the government shut down than agree to a measly $5 billion in border wall funding for the current budget year.

As noted by Philip Van Cleave at Ammoland, a site which has been tracking these laws, the passage of red flag laws - which have already led to the deaths of citizens, he says - depends largely upon "duping people into thinking the proposed law is constitutional and will stop criminals."

The laws, which are also routinely called Gun Violence Restraining Orders or Extreme Risk Protection Orders, are really nothing more than gun confiscation done under the guise of legality. They are most often described as "gun violence protection" ordinances that are 'designed' to keep citizens 'safe.’ Van Cleave says they are currently being pushed hard on the state and federal level by Leftists who know they can't simply ban guns because of the pesky Second Amendment.

As noted, Van Cleave says at least one American citizen has already been killed in Maryland when police attempted to enforce a red flag law.

According to Fox 45, police say Gary J. Willis, who was the subject of the Extreme Risk Protective Order and the Emergency Petition, answered the door armed with a handgun. The Red Flag Law went into effect on October 1 and allows judges to create protective orders against a gun owner who has displayed certain threatening behaviors.

You would think that the use of human shields is a war crime.

On Tuesday Israel carried out an unprovoked Christmas Day attack against Syria. According to reports citing the Russian Ministry of Defense, six Israeli F16 fighters violated neighboring Lebanese airspace. And while passing over Sidon, the Israeli fighters fired 16 laser-guided GBU-39 bombs towards targets in and around the capital city of Damascus, 14 of which were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.

However, more shocking details were revealed Wednesday, as the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that the IDF jets flew in to firing position – just as two civilian passenger airliners were in the air preparing for their landings into both Beirut and Damascus airports.

As a result, Syrian military defense units did not deploy its surface-to-air missiles and electronic jamming "to prevent a tragedy," and instead allowed Damascus air traffic control to divert one of its passenger flights to an emergency destination at Khmeimim in Latakia.

Regardless of using passenger airliners as human shields, Israel officials are saying the strike was a response to a missile fired from Syrian territory. According to World Israel News, a military spokesman on Tuesday evening said Israeli air defenses were activated against a missile fired from Syria.

Over the past several years, Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes in Syria targeting Iranian personnel and military infrastructure, which the Islamic Republic has built up during Syria’s bloody civil war.

Prozac. It kills the fish and increases school shootings. The upside is that it provides a momentary high while your problems get worse. However, downside continues as officials are linking Prozac to the antibiotic resistance crisis.

Natural News reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls antibiotic resistance "a global threat" and "one of the biggest public health challenges of our time."

Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria and other germs develop the ability to beat the antibiotic drugs designed to kill them. Infections caused by these pathogens can be difficult – or even impossible – to treat.

Each year, over two million Americans develop an antibiotic resistant infection, resulting in the death of at least 23,000 people. Experts estimate that by the year 2050, antibiotic resistant infections will kill 10 million people each year.

The misuse and overuse of antibiotic drugs in both humans and animals has played a large part in the development of these "superbugs," but a recent study has warned that the use of other medications is also driving the development of antibiotic resistance. The study confirmed that the antidepressant drug fluoxetine – commonly known as Prozac or Sarafem – "directly causes multi-antibiotic resistance via genetic mutation."

The Daily Stormer described Kevin Spacey's recent behavior as typical of the homosexual nature to combine the personal and professional drive of a man with the abject materialism, complete lack of empathy, and pure narcissism of a woman.

On Thursday, Spacey was charged with indecent assault and battery for an alleged incident that occurred in July 2016 in Massachusetts, according to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s office.

Following reports of the criminal complaint against him, Spacey released a video Monday in which he appeared to reference the allegations against him through acting as his former House of Cards character, Frank Underwood.

The video, titled "Let Me Be Frank," was posted on YouTube and tweeted from Spacey’s account. In the video, Spacey says: "I know what you want. Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us, but what we have is too strong, it’s too powerful."

So why are people shocked by this "alleged" predator's video?

According to the Daily Stormer, it's a totally obvious move to appeal to his former fandom, while hinting at the alleged oppression he’s faced as a homosexual to make demands that his career be immediately restored to him. In fact, Spacey should be expected to make a full comeback. Why? Because our society doesn’t care about teenage boys at all. Instead, it exalts the empowered female, who is always a victim and wears her victimhood as a crown, to a saintly status.

The Daily Stormer goes on to say, "Preying on teenage boys violates no value of the system, and so Spacey's crimes are ultimately going to be viewed as victimless. If anything, he is the victim, because he is a member of a victim class who is being accused by members of an oppressor class."

The El Paso, Texas affiliate for CBS reports ICE released about 400 alien parents and children in the two days before Christmas and another 186 on Christmas day. Most were dropped off near the local Greyhound bus station and eventually assisted by local charities. More are expected to be released Wednesday.

Asylum seekers are getting what they wanted. And now they're free to roam around in this country. But the open-borders crowd is still complaining, saying, ICE is truly filled with ugly Americans, dropping off undocumented migrants at a Greyhound station in downtown El Paso, unsupervised and left to starve on Christmas day. What fucking hypocrites! Should they have been provided limo rides to their new suburban homes? What, exactly, was supposed to happen with the illegals now that they are 'legally' in the country? What's the alternative to not releasing? Maybe just dumping them back into Mexico! So terribly predictable. Liberals demand they be released, then cry when they are. The problem is they were released on the wrong side of the border.

ICE said in a statement the mass release was mandated by a court order designed to ensure that migrant families are not detained more than 20 days.

The ICE statement said, "After decades of inaction by Congress, the government remains severely constrained in its ability to detain and promptly remove families with no legal basis to remain in the U.S. To mitigate the risk of holding family units past the timeframe allotted to the government, ICE has curtailed reviews of post-release plans from families apprehended along the southwest border. ICE continues to work with local and state officials and NGO partners in the area so they are prepared to provide assistance with transportation or other services."

In something of a mix-up, the initial releases on Sunday and Monday came without advance notice to local non-profits that assist migrants with food and shelter. That changed Tuesday so the charities were better prepared to respond.

Nicaraguan police shut down operations at a major TV network and arrested the owner, accusing him of instigating hate and violence in the country, officials said.

Law enforcement raided the headquarters of 100% Noticias in Nicaragua's capital of Managua late Friday night and took several people in custody, including the broadcaster's owner and director, Miguel Mora, and news director Lucia Pineda, colleagues said.

Mora appeared in court Saturday morning where he was formally accused of "fostering and instigating hate and violence" in the country, according to an attorney with the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights representing Mora.

Pineda's whereabouts remain unknown, her colleagues told CNN.

The Nicaraguan broadcaster is one of the few independent news networks in the country. Its journalists have continuously covered the country's political turmoil since waves of anti-government protests and crackdowns erupted in April and hundreds of people were killed.

News director broadcasts raid of station on Facebook

https://www.breitbart.com/latin-america/2018/12/24/nicaraguan-police-storm-tv-station-accuse-owners-instigating-hate/

Police raided the headquarters of 100% Noticias in the capital of Managua on Friday, where they arrested multiple people including the channel’s owner and director, Miguel Mora, and their news director Lucia Pineda.

Mora appeared in court on Saturday morning, where he was charged with “fostering and instigating hate and violence” in the socialist-ruled country, where widespread protests against Daniel Ortega’s regime have led to the death of 300 people and consequent crackdowns against all political dissidents.

As police raided the building, Lucia Pineda started a live Facebook broadcast where she described the situation as it happened.

“They (police) want to take 100% Noticias. There are riot police officers inside the station. They want to take our director Miguel Mora with them,” she explained. “We can hear them from the second floor; they want to get in. This is an emergency; they want to arrest our director for no reason.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday called early elections for April, setting the stage for a three-month campaign clouded by a series of corruption investigations against the long-serving Israeli leader.

Riding high in the polls, Netanyahu appears all but certain to win a fourth consecutive term and a place in history as the country's longest-serving prime minister. Those bright prospects, however, could be derailed by a looming decision by the country's attorney general on whether to file charges against Netanyahu.

Netanyahu, facing the possibility of bribery and breach of trust charges in three different cases, made scant mention of these investigations at a gathering of his Likud Party as he announced plans for what is expected to be an April 9 vote.

Netanyahu, who also served a term in the late 1990s, has been prime minister for the past decade.

His supporters point to a humming, high-tech economy, his handling of security issues, particularly countering the threat of Iranian influence in the region, and his gains on the diplomatic stage, including a close alliance with President Donald Trump that has paid important dividends.

Netanyahu had three other options

https://www.timesofisrael.com/early-election-timing-likely-more-to-do-with-graft-dodging-than-draft-dodging/

Monday’s announcement that Israelis would be heading to the polls in April of 2019 came in the form of a joint statement from the heads of the coalition parties, but there was no hiding who was really behind the decision.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s unchallenged political master, had called the meeting of coalition heads, coordinated with each of them beforehand, and presided over the discussion on his proposal for early elections.

The chairmen of the five parties voted unanimously to dissolve the Knesset and hold elections within four months, but, coalition sources told The Times of Israel, Netanyahu had decided on the move “long before Monday.”

Had Netanyahu wanted, there were at least three options before him other than calling elections: using the remaining three weeks to find a workable compromise; letting the deadline pass with no new legislation; or pushing through the bill with the support of the opposition Yisrael Beytenu, which reiterated on Monday that its MKs would vote in favor.

Indictment had been expected within weeks

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-israel-politics/israel-to-hold-early-election-in-april-netanyahu-says-idUSKCN1ON0NP

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Monday a snap election in less than four months, appealing directly to voters for a fresh political mandate that could help him weather possible charges in corruption investigations.

The government cited differences within Netanyahu’s coalition over a new military conscription bill affecting exemptions for ultra-Orthodox Jews as the main reason for the early ballot.

But there has long been speculation that the right-wing leader, whose popularity has held up despite corruption allegations, could call an election before the attorney general decides whether to follow police recommendations to indict him.

The April 9 election would otherwise not have been due until November.

The indictment decision had been expected within weeks, but some Israeli media reports said the attorney general could opt to delay any indictments out of concern over influencing the outcome of the poll. The Justice Ministry said work on the cases would continue “independent of political events”.

The NYT published a late obituary this week for Timothy C. May, author of The Crypto Anarchist Manifesto. And after dozens of publications recalled how much of a genius May was (and how his brilliance laid the foundations for the modern digital currency ecosystem), the NYT reduced the man's achievements to racist slurs.

In contrast, the Daily Stormer paid tribute to Timothy C. May who died on the 13th of this month, saying he was the visionary founder of the cypherpunks movement that paved the way for modern cryptosystems and digital currencies.

THE MAN MEANT WHAT HE SAID

According to the Daily Stormer, the pioneer of the technology and society we are all consumers of once said, "Liquidate the Jew and the Negro and most of our problems fade away."

The NYT played up Tim May's racism by tweeting a screenshot of him calling the assassination of MLK a good thing.

However, unlike the cowards in the MSM and Silicon Valley, the Daily Stormer responded by saying they will not apologetically erase the politics of Tim May. The Stormer said the man not only meant what he said, but what he said was entirely, obviously true. Social problems would completely disappear if the Jews were to be liquidated entirely. Hell, I don’t even think it would require anything to be done with the Negro. Blacks are simply impressionable children and without the corrosive influence of the perfidious international kike, race relations between blacks and whites would return to what they were before the (Jewish founded and sustained) civil rights movement: amicable and entirely without significant contention.

COMMIE RAG PRAISES MLK

From the newsgroup archive Narkive, Tim May wrote this original post in the "Commie Rag Praises MLK" discussion 14 years ago:

>So I saw the praise of the local commie rag "The Sentinel" of the house nigger, Martin Luther King.

>I was there where those events occurred, 1961-68, save for one year in France. I saw the acts of this nigger, the riling up of shiftless bums not very different from the shiftless bums of Pacific Avenue. (Of Santa Cruz, CA, where less than 1% of the population nevertheless screams "it be racist!" whenever further taxation thefts from those who worked are thwarted.)

>"I have a dream!," his call for the colored to rise up, was little different from the "Visions of a hamburger" of the current derelicts and deadbeats on Pacific.

>It was GOOD that this commie promoter of derelict/nigger causes was whacked-out by a CIA SPECOPS team. Just as was good that the commie JFK was whacked-out by a CIA Dept. 5 team, or that my neighbor the spy was whacked-out in Lake Barcroft just before this. Or that Robert Kennedy, the money connection with the Mob, was whacked-out.

>Having gone to Langley H.S. and having occupied the house of one of the top CIA assassins in Teheran, 1965-67, I know whereof I speak.

>And the entire U.S. government needs fumigation, of the fatal biological kind. Forty million Americans need a trip up the chimeys, 3 million of them the facilliators, 35 million of them the Jew/nigger/spick recipients of what the first group stole.

>Liquidate the Jew and the negro and most of our problems fade away.

SURVEILLANCE STATE

In its article on the legendary cypherpunk, CoinDesk wrote: In October, May penned a piece for CoinDesk, sharing his thoughts on the bitcoin white paper and the developing cryptocurrency space, saying "Satoshi [bitcoin’s pseudonymous inventor] did a brilliant thing, but the story is far from over."

May further warned: "I can’t speak for what Satoshi intended, but I sure don’t think it involved bitcoin exchanges that have draconian rules about KYC, AML, passports, freezes on accounts and laws about reporting 'suspicious activity' to the local secret police. There’s a real possibility that all the noise about 'governance,' 'regulation' and 'blockchain' will effectively create a surveillance state, a dossier society."

In his 1992 "Crypto Anarchist Manifesto", May issued the following call-to-action:

"Just as the technology of printing altered and reduced the power of medieval guilds and the social power structure, so too will cryptologic methods fundamentally alter the nature of corporations and of government interference in economic transactions. Combined with emerging information markets, crypto anarchy will create a liquid market for any and all material which can be put into words and pictures. And just as a seemingly minor invention like barbed wire made possible the fencing-off of vast ranches and farms, thus altering forever the concepts of land and property rights in the frontier West, so too will the seemingly minor discovery out of an arcane branch of mathematics come to be the wire clippers which dismantle the barbed wire around intellectual property. Arise, you have nothing to lose but your barbed wire fences!"

https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/21/18151738/walmart-eavesdrop-patent-customer-employee-privacy

TheVerge.com on Thursday reported that Walmart was granted a patent for a new listening system for its retail stores. The Verge said the listening system, if ever deployed, may make some employees and shoppers uncomfortable. According to the filing and claims, it’s "an example system for capturing and analyzing sounds in a shopping facility." In other words, it’s a kind of surveillance system to eavesdrop on shoppers and employees - listening to everything from rustling bags to register beeps.

Is a by-product of this the possibility of "overhearing" conversations as well?

Stuff like this is why I don’t shop at Walmart. That’s too much surveillance, even for me. Luckily the systems were only being tested in the stores I’ve been to. Lol. If you can’t trust Walmart, Facebook, or the United States’ Disjointed Multi-Personality government with this kind of info-sweeping surveillance and storage capacity, then WHO can you trust?

 No.84

The Verge went on to say that Walmart could use this tech as an anti-theft solution to find out if number of items in a transaction and number of bags used checks out. It sounds like a reasonable application of technology in a major retail store, right? However, the system wouldn’t just be an anti-theft tool, but a way to also monitor employee interactions with customers and possibly monitor what customers are saying in real time about products.

Hmm. Maybe running a white noise generator app will confuse it.


 No.85

According to the patent, "the sound sensors can capture audio of conversations between guests and an employee stationed at the terminal," and "the system can process the audio of the conversation to determine whether the employee stationed at the terminal is greeting guests."

WTF? This is micromanagement to the nth degree. This method is as equitable as to having your phones tapped.


 No.86

The Verge said advanced monitoring systems to track shoppers (and employees) isn’t exactly an original idea. Walmart’s retail rival Amazon has been busy testing its cashier-less Go retail stores for two years now, of which it now has nine locations. Those stores monitor the individual movements of shoppers and employees, all the way down to your gait and physical appearance, to keep track of which items you take off shelves, so Amazon can charge you automatically when you walk out.

I still shop at Walmart when needed, but in recent years, they’ve ramped up the creepiness, so I’m not surprised by this. It’s one thing (although seemingly pointless to me) to have cameras at the self-serve checkout terminals, but it is another thing to also put up monitors there so looking straight ahead leads to you looking back at yourself on a screen. If I'm at checkout, we should be good, yeah?


 No.87

According to The Verge: Whether or not your privacy can be preserved in the future while shopping, what this does prove is that one of the biggest retailers in the world is actively thinking about the future of shopping and retail security.

As if we needed any more reasons not to shop at Walmart, Lol. Humans have Draconianly surveilled, controlled and exploited each other since the dawn of our species (slavery/ total control of other human beings, etc.). This is nothing truly new. What will be new, is when we can all connect as a single mind, when we won’t feel exploited because we will literally be one thing, with nothing to hide from each other, and therefore no judgement or miscommunication due to lack of communication – it’ll be full of diversity, but shared oneness that gurus of ages past have nothing on. Fuck me!

The DailyCrusader.com on Dec. 21, 2018, said that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting that "ISIS" is now "attacking" "Kurds" in "Southern Syria." The report goes on to make the weasel-sounding excuse that Kurds will be "unable to continue holding (((ISIS))) prisoners" ostensibly referring to events that will occur once the United States withdraws from Syria.

FRENCH INVOLVEMENT

According to the latest report, the Kurds and Israel have since met with French President Emmanuel "Rothschild" Macron to discuss French protection of this region; this, however may prove tricky as Macron, who has been accused of treason by top French generals, has been unable to contain his own population’s riots, going so far as to use chemical weapons, including lachrymator agents, on peaceful French civilians.

MIDDLE EAST SWAMP

The Daily Crusader commented on the developing situation, saying, Democrats and Israel will stop at nothing to prevent Trump from leaving the Middle East and focusing on "America First" policies.
