DHS is Giving Colleges Millions to Stoke a Nation of Fear and Grow the Police State

DHS is Giving Colleges Millions to Stoke a Nation of Fear and Grow the Police State:

The majority of the corruption in the United States—from warrantless surveillance to endless wars, to unregulated spending—can be tied back to a number of government agencies that operate with no oversight, and face no accountability. One of the most important factors that is often ignored is where this influence begins, and how these agencies find their recruits.

*****

In Major Disappointment, Merkel Wins German Election Despite Worst Result Since 1949; AfD Surges To Enter Parliament:

In other words, just like in the recent Franch elections, the German establishment was just trounced:

  • Worst result for Merkel’s CDU/CSU since 1949
  • Worst result for SPD Since 1945

Even more troubling for the German establishment is that the far-right AfD was the second strongest party in former Eastern Germany:

Stephen Lendman: Were Arrested London Bombing Suspects Convenient Patsies?

Were Arrested London Bombing Suspects Convenient Patsies?:

Whenever incidents like Friday’s Parsons Green commuter train bombing occur, they’re more likely to be state-sponsored false flags than terrorist acts.

Given the history of these type attacks in America and Europe, repeating a familiar pattern, it’s wise to be suspicious, questioning the validity of official reports, not accepting them at face value.

The motive behind false flags is clear, fear-mongering schemes to convince people to sacrifice fundamental freedoms for greater security – not realizing they’ll lose both.

Defiant Players Kneel, Join Arms, Avoid Anthem As Trump Calls For NFL Boycott

Defiant Players Kneel, Join Arms, Avoid Anthem As Trump Calls For NFL Boycott:

Update (1:30 pm ET): This afternoon’s round of NFL games has begun and as expected players from nearly every team playing today took a knee during the National Anthem, locked arms in solidarity with players who decided to take a knee, or – in the case of the Pittsburg Steelers – remained in the locker room, and thus weren’t visible to the public.

In Philadelphia, Eagles and Giants players and coaches  locked arms as a massive American flag was raised over the field and military jets performed a flyover. A few players raised fists or knelt, according ot the New York Times. Several players on the Bills and the Broncos also took a knee.

The Steelers didn’t participate in the Anthem, as coach Mike Tomlin had warned, remaining in the locker room instead – except for LT Alejandro Villanueva, an army veteran who stood by the tunnel with his hand over his heart.

Even Tom Brady, who as NYT notes is friends with Trump,  jooined his teammates in locking arms during the anthem before the Patriots’ game against the Texans In Foxborough. Brady also put his hand over his heart.

Elon Musk Isn’t Alone: Vladimir Putin Asks “How Long Before The Robots Eat Us”

Elon Musk Isn’t Alone: Vladimir Putin Asks “How Long Before The Robots Eat Us”:

Elon Musk isn’t the only one whose afraid that advances in artificial intelligence will leads to something akin to the creation of Skynet.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed reservations about artificial intelligence, even asking the head of Russia’s largest tech firm ‘how long do we have before the robots eat us’?

The Russian president was speaking to Arkady Volozh, chief of internet firm Yandex, during a tour of the company’s Moscow headquarters, the Daily Mail reports. Volozh was discussing the “potential” of AI when he discovered that Putin has a dramatically different interpretation of what that might be.

According to state-funded Russian broadcaster RT, the question baffled Volozh.

“I hope never”, he replied after taking a pause to gather his thoughts. “It’s not the first machine to be better than humans at something. An excavator digs better than we do with a shovel. But we don’t get eaten by excavators. A car moves faster than we do…”

But Putin seemed unconvinced. “They don’t think,” he remarked.

Volozh acknowledged that it was true and scrambled back to his speech on AI’s merits.
