12915 Gleaning PsyOpp Testing A 19 Year Old Dutch Hacker With Fake Gun Demands Air Time Claims To Have A Radioactive Bomb And Claims To Have 98 Cyberattckers Ready To Strike With 8 Detonations Weapon(s) Inside Netherlands Says ”There are big world issues they want to bring out”
Mikhail Gorbachev stated that the United States has pulled Russia into a new Cold War that faces the risk of further escalation. The 83-year-old former Soviet leader made the comments on Thursday in an interview with Russian news agency Interfax.
“The U.S. has already dragged us into a new Cold War, trying to openly implement its idea of triumphalism,” he is quoted as saying.
“Where will that lead all of us?” he said.
“What’s next? Unfortunately, I cannot be sure that the Cold War will not bring about a ‘hot’ one. I’m afraid they might take the risk,” Gorbachev said, referring to the United States.
“All you hear is about sanctions towards Russia from America and the European Union. Have they totally lost their minds? The U.S. has been totally ‘lost in the jungle’ and is dragging us there as well.”
Speaking calmly to someone off-camera, apparently the security guard he had forced to let him into the building, the man said, “We are hired in by intelligence agencies.”
NOS reporter Martijn Bink said he spoke to the man after he was arrested and he claimed to be from a hackers’ collective. He didn’t elaborate.
Police said in a statement the man demanded airtime and threatened that bombs would go off at several locations around the Netherlands if his demand wasn’t met.
A 19-year-old brandishing a fake weapon threatened a security guard to gain access to the headquarters of Dutch national broadcaster NOS and demand airtime Thursday night before police stormed a TV studio to arrest him.
Nobody was injured in the incident, but it forced the NOS off air for around an hour and set nation on edge, coming just weeks after the deadly attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris that left 12 people dead.
When NOS came back on air, it showed recorded footage of the young man, wearing a black suit, white shirt and black tie, and carrying a pistol with what looked like a silencer attached.
Police said later the gun was a fake and that the man had no criminal record. Detectives were investigating his possible motives.
NOS director Jan de Jong told the broadcaster that the headquarters had beefed up security in the aftermath of the attack on Charlie Hebdo. The media park in Hilversum, 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of Amsterdam, is home to the NOS and many other Dutch broadcasters. It has been tightly guarded for years, since populist Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn was gunned down in a parking lot there in 2002 by an animal rights activist.
“This is your worst nightmare, especially after Charlie Hebdo,” De Jong said later on a special NOS news show.
RTL news showed pictures of the letter the intruder had given the security guard who escorted him to the studios. In it Zahzah claims 98 hackers are poised to launch a cyber attack and that eight bombs containing radioactive material have been placed around the country.
Who could have seen this coming?
It would appear Silver and Crude are linked somehow – margin calls?
Yet again this morning’s “bounce” to $45 was heralded as maybe possibly could be the stability that markets are looking for. And once again it was not as WTI makes fresh cycle lows to a $43 handle.. and once again, energy stocks plunged back to energy credit’s reality…
Another bounce, another new low… (breaking yesterday’s $44.08 lows)
As Oil started to crack, so silver plunged on heavy volume…
Slowly but surely, the narrative that plummeting oil prices is “unambiguously good” for the economy is fading into obscurity, as reality is starting to emerge. For the latest capitulation we go to the Bank of America chart of the day which shows that the current Hamilton Oil Shock is now the biggest in history, surpassing even the Lehman collapse.
From BofA Chart of the Day:
Hamilton oil shocks: Although historical comparisons are often imperfect, it is useful to look back at prior episodes of oil price shocks. In order for a move in the price of oil to qualify as an episode, there has to be a significant deviation from trend. We use the approach developed by Jim Hamilton, which defines oil price shocks as the difference from the three-year moving average. The most cautionary episode to today was the 62% drop in oil prices from November 1985 to July 1986, although the Hamilton measure is much smaller. Similar to today, most believed this would prove to be a boost to GDP growth. Indeed, the consensus was forecasting average 2.3% GDP growth to increase 0.3pp, but it actually fell 0.9pp (based on the as reported GDP data, third release). This downward surprise continued for three quarters.
This time won’t be different, but like then, we will need to wait until the revised-revised-revised GDP data before it is finally apparent.
Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.
With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Ferguson and other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.
Robert Johnson, president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, told people at the World Economic Forum in Davos that many hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes.
He said: “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.”
GLOBAL ECONOMIC MELTDOWN & SOCIETAL COLLAPSE: Precursors To A Global Financial Collapse – The Elites Have Activated Their Doomsday Plans As Panicked Super Rich Are Buying Hideouts With Private Airstrips In The Event Of Civil Uprising!
Mr Johnson, said the economic situation could soon become intolerable as even in the richest countries inequality was increasing.
He said: “People need to know there are possibilities for their children – that they will have the same opportunity as anyone else.
“There is a wicked feedback loop. Politicians who get more money tend to use it to get more even money.”
His comments were backed up by Stewart Wallis, executive director of the New Economics Foundation, who when asked about the comments told CNBC Africa: “Getaway cars the airstrips in New Zealand and all that sort of thing, so basically a way to get off. If they can get off, onto another planet, some of them would.”
He added: “I think the rich are worried and they should be worried. I mean inequality, why does it matter?
“Most people have heard the Oxfam statistics that now we’ve got 80, the 80 richest people in the world, having more wealth that the bottom three-point-five billion, and very soon we’ll get a situation where that one percent, one percent of the richest people have more wealth than everybody else, the 99.”
Biometric markers could surpass passwords within 12 months. That would mean a shift from notoriously weak letter-and-number combinations to stronger, less hackable protection measures like fingerprint authentication.
So said Mark Nelsen, senior vice president of risk products and business intelligence at Visa, who was in town Thursday to join a panel on keeping customer trust.
Services such as Apple Pay — which requires users to scan their fingerprint to enable transactions — are already preparing the public for that transition, which could blossom in the next 12 to 24 months, Nelsen said after the event.
“It’s moving beyond the password as a way to authenticate yourself and really adopting more of those biometrics,” Nelsen said.
He pointed to Braintree, the Chicago-based payments processor and software developer acquired by PayPal in 2013, as the type of company that could make the technology needed for this shift more accessible.
“They would be one that would be trying to either develop applications that can use that kind of stronger authentication,” Nelsen said.
For example, Braintree could create a program that allows people to log into their accounts with their voice, Nelsen said. The company could then license that out to others who want to offer the same capability.
(Braintree wouldn’t discuss specifics about any such plans, but noted: “Technologies like biometrics present exciting opportunities for payments and other industries to improve their user experience. … Our parent company, PayPal, has worked with Samsung to allow users to login and pay using their fingerprint on their newest Samsung smartphones and tablet devices — the Galaxy S5, Tab S and Note 4.”)
Widespread adoption of biometric authentication for processes that involve personal data or financial transactions will require something some consumers have lost in recent months: trust.
As if they did not already have their tentacles in everything else already, TBTF, and depositor-insured hedge fund Goldman Sachs is about to become the most heavily-weighted component of the Dow Jones “Industrial” Average. Following Visa’s moments ago announced 4:1 stock split, Goldman will now represent just shy of 7.00% of the DJIA.
the Greeks, despite their glorious history, could not stop their conquest by the EU and a handful of German and Dutch banks. If the Greece of history still existed, the EU and the private banks would be cowering in fear, because the EU and the private banks have ruthlessly exploited the Greek people and represent the same threat to Greek sovereignty as Persia did.
Goldman Sachs Strikes Again
According to reports, the American bankster firm, Goldman Sachs, sometimes known as Gold Sacks, hid Greek debt from view in order that banks would extent more credit to Greece, thus setting the Greek people up for looting.
Greece is prostrate. Greeks are actually committing suicide, because Greeks cannot provide for themselves in the depressed conditions that the EU and the private banks have created for them for no other reason than that the private banks must not have to write down the loans.
Greek Suicide As Banksters Loot The World
So, one result from “democracy” in Greece is suicide. With enough democracy, we can control world population and halt the destruction of nature’s capital. All we have to do is to enable the banksters to loot the entire world.
Super-Rich And Serfs
This is the “New Democracy.” It is a resurrection of the old feudal order. A few super-rich aristocrats and everyone else serfs obliged to support the ruling order. The looting that began in Greece has spread into Ukraine, and who knows who is next?
With only 37% of the vote, does Syriza have the clout to stand up for Greece against the looters?
Can Greece escape from a situation comparable to the European Dark Ages when populations were ravaged by marauding raiders? Perhaps if Greece realigns with Russia and gains financing from BRICS.
[The SYRIZA] party believes that the new government in Ukraine came to power as a result of a coup, and call it a junta.
“We should not accept or recognize the government of neo-Nazis in Ukraine,” the Athens News Agency quotes Tsipras who believes that the Ukrainian people should decide their future themselves.
Speaking about different peoples’ movements for self-determination, Tsipras said that the European left respected the right to self-determination, but nationalism and clashes could not lead to positive results.
“We in the EU should not give preference to changing borders, but must respect the position of the peoples, who have decided to create a Federation within the state,” said the SYRIZA leader.
the EU must change in order to survive; the EU lacks democracy, and citizens do not believe that their vote can change policy.
The WTF moment has arrived: the moment when the Chair of the “independent” Fed tells an audience of Democrats just what her plans for monetary policy are:
YELLEN TOLD DEMOCRATS NO RATE INCREASE `IMMEDIATELY': SCHUMER
We knew some Fed member would speak today to boost stocks but had no idea it would be Yellen herself.
And now, we are confident the SEC will go after all the democrats who bought stocks when this Yellen statement was made in confidence, prior to Schumer making it part of the public domain.
Because everyone knows you BTFD when Janet Yellen speaks (and Sell The F**king Shit out of precious metals in the middle of surging currency volatility and monetray policy chaos…)
The Fall of Babylon the Great
18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily[a] with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached[b] to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you,[c] and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges[d] her.
The first impression…
“The likelihood of the actual bond restructuring is quite high as it could be one of the conditions for any future Russian support,” Vladimir Osakovskiy, an analyst at Bank of America Corp. in Moscow, said by e-mail.
“There is strong political incentive to continue to repay external debt in order to keep alternative, other-than-Russia refinancing options open.”
The slow response…

People had better prepare themselves for some conclusion events, certain to occur with fireworks. The USDollar is soon to go away, put to rest, killed off. Its rise signals its demise. The hidden dismantle of the Petro-Dollar mechanism has been eerie, mysterious, and full of intrigue. The Gold Standard will return, but through the trade window. The solution to the untreated Global Financial Crisis is the gold route. The Eurasian Trade Zone will be built upon the gold route, and see a revival of the Silk Road. It cannot be stopped, not even by war.
When the Danish Central Bank cut rates precisely a week ago, going from NIRP to NIRPer, and pushing the deposit rate from -0.2% to -0.35%, the sense of desperation was already in the air: after all this was already the second rate cut by the Denmark’s monetary authority in one week, all in the hope of preserving the peg to the DEK to the EUR. That sense of desperation just hit a fever pitch moments ago, when the Dutch central bank just went NIRPest, and cut rates across the board yet again, and made it even more costly to save money in the north European country, where the Deposit rate has just been cut from -0.35% to -0.5%!
Ironically, all this will achieve is delay the Peg breach by a few weeks. If anything, the Danish central bank is merely confirming that while it hasn’t sounded an all out retreat from currency wars, like the Swiss and Singapore banks did recently, it is in furious retreat and it is only a matter 0f time at this point.
A hacktivist took over the news program of the Netherlands national broadcaster on the night of January 29. The gunman, armed with a large revolver and silencer, demanded airtime on NOS-TV. He also claimed to have possession of a radioactive bomb. The hacker handed a note to a producer in which he also claimed to have an army of 98 cyberattackers ready to strike.

He also claimed to have possession of a radioactive bomb. The hacker handed a note to a producer in which he also claimed to have an army of 98 cyberattackers ready to strike. The dramatic video above shows his arrest as armed police storm the newsroom with their guns drawn. It’s unclear at this point what the hackers long-game strategy was. In the note he gave to a producer, it stressed that if authorities did what he said, no staff at the station would be hurt. According to NOS, while he waited in the studio, the gunman talked to a security guard, he offered some idea into what he wanted to say on air, telling the guard, “there are big world issues that we want to bring out.”
here are derivative problems in the price of oil, emerging markets, and bond markets. So you have to wonder: How is that translating into the derivatives books of these various banks? We have seen a lot of entities who have seen their financial situation change violently in a very short period of time.”
Well, here we are in 2015 and we are hearing more and more about gold repatriations. So when does the day of reckoning come? When that day comes it will mark the breakdown of this latest scheme, just like the collapse of the London Gold Pool in the 1960s. I don’t think they will wait until the last bar of gold is gone from Western vaults, so the collapse of this latest suppression scheme could happen any day.
Energy sector earnings have to surge by 70%, implying a near doubling of oil prices to $88, for the forward P/E multiple to return to normal, or
The Energy sector price has to crash from 549 today to 323, where it would trade down to its historic forward P/E multiple, suggesting a price drop of over 40%!.
So which is it? Well, as the following chart showing a relationship we have grown to love over the past few months, the main reason why energy stocks are loathe to catch down to reality is the same BTFD mentality which is keeping the S&P elevated well over 100% above its fair “ex-central banker” value. Indeed, every single time even the smallest buying momentum arrives, energy stocks soar as if stung, only to recrash day after precisely to where credit says they should be trading.
Which means that once the ongoing euphoria of a 5 year Pavlovian BTFD reaction wears off, the pain for those long energy equities (and credit, since the above analysis implies energy credits are also massively mispriced) will be unprecedented, unless of course, by some miracle, oil does indeed double from here and on very short notice.
But wait, it gets worse, because while equities are pricing in an unsustainable 23x in foward energy P/E, another market, that of interest rate forwards, is implying oil plunging down to $35! As a reminder, oil is among other things, a function of rate differentials or said simpler, USD strength, strength which appears is not going anywhere. And as the following calculation from Cornerstone implies, should the EURUSD tumble to parity which is what Draghi’s desire seems to be, it would suggest a 22% plunge in oil from here, implying a $35.5 price of oil one year from now.
This in turn would mean that, all else equal, the forward PE multiple would rise to just shy of 30x, and/or that Energy prices as a group would have to tumble over 50% from current levels!
Of course, if and when energy prices are cut in half, this would also have devastating consequences on the rest of the S&P, and all other asset classes, and almost assuredly force the Fed to not only forget all about hiking rates, but promptly engage in QE4.
Which may be just what the market is pricing in.
The only problem is that one can’t have a world in which both QE4 is priced in (as equities are doing), as well as pricing in the 2015 Fed rate hike (as oil is doing), and is one of the main drivers of the USD strength.
One has to give, and it has to give soon.
Quietly behind the scenes – and not at all reflective of a collapsing global economy (because that would break the narrative of over-supply and pent-up demand) – The Baltic Dry Index plunged over 5% today to 632… That is the lowest absolute level for the global shipping rates indicator since August 1986….
We have literally hundreds of thousands of layoffs being predicted across the sector and many analysts are forecasting recessionary environments in states like Texas that are most dependent on the oil boom. Layoffs will have an almost immediate impact on local economies, as well as an already fragile real estate market.
Couple that with the panic that will undoubtedly come when big oil companies start closing up shop and can no longer pay those hundreds of billions of dollars in debts, and you can see how this could well be the trigger for a serious meltdown in global financial markets and debt instruments.

It has been the holy grail of science fiction – an interface that allows us to plug our brain into a computer.
Now, researchers at MIT have revealed new fibres less than a width of a hair that could make it a reality.
Scientists tracking the Ebola outbreak in Guinea say the virus has mutated.
Researchers at the Institut Pasteur in France, which first identified the outbreak last March, are investigating whether it could have become more contagious.
More than 22,000 people have been infected with Ebola and 8,795 have died in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Scientists are starting to analyse hundreds of blood samples from Ebola patients in Guinea.
They are tracking how the virus is changing and trying to establish whether it’s able to jump more easily from person to person
It’s not unusual for viruses to change over a period time. Ebola is an RNA virus – like HIV and influenza – which have a high rate of mutation. That makes the virus more able to adapt and raises the potential for it to become more contagious.
Now let’s talk about the latest news. Last week we reported on two papers in Nature describing breakthrough techniques in modifying E. coli bacteria to ensure that they would be unable to thrive if they escaped containment. These genetically modified bacteria have been designed to be virus-resistant. They’ve also been engineered to require a synthetic amino acid to stay alive. That amino acid doesn’t occur in the natural world. This would, in effect, keep the microbes on a leash. It would also, according to one of the scientists, George Church, make such bacteria attractive to industries that want to use them to make chemicals or clean up toxic waste sites.
But there are skeptics, including Denise Caruso, author of “Intervention: Confronting the Real Risks of Genetic Engineering and Life on the Biotech Planet.” She told that it’s hard to measure accurately the risks posed by genetically engineered microbes.
“Microbes are opportunistic. Bacteria. Viruses. They want to stay alive, and they will, given incredible odds against them,” she said.
Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in the Florida Keys if British researchers win approval to use the bugs against two extremely painful viral diseases.
Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood.
Sharon mentioned a recent article by philosophy professor John G. Messerly in a science update she produced for SkyWatchTV. In his column, Messerly argues that religion is “the enemy of the future.”
Ironically, his worldview isn’t new; it’s as old as human history.
Setting his ignorance (or denial) of history aside, as the list of Christian thinkers in the sciences over the last two millennia — and record of atrocities committed by atheistic governments — is far more extensive than he admits, Dr. Messerly doubles down on his position by declaring religion dead:
History is littered with dead gods. The Greek and Roman gods, and thousands of others have perished. Yet Allah, Yahweh, Krishna and a few more survive. But will belief in the gods endure? It will not. Our descendents will be too advanced to share such primitive beliefs.
If we survive and science progresses, we will manipulate the genome, rearrange the atom, and augment the mind. And if science defeats suffering and death, religion as we know it will die.
His logic is muddy at best. Dr. Messerly accuses Christianity, which he singles out because of its prominence in Western culture since the 4th century, of leading to “some of the worst [living] conditions known in human history.” Assertions such as this reveal more about the author than about the actual impact of religion on society. Like Marx and Engels in The Communist Manifesto, Messerly sees the symptoms but is clueless as to the nature of the disease. The problems of human society — poverty, for example — are properly and uniquely identified and addressed by a Christian worldview.
Was the medieval Roman church complicit in political intrigues that resulted in oppression of the masses? Yes, no doubt. Not unique to Christian kingdoms. I’ll see your popes and raise you Stalin and Mao.
Hunger and homelessness are not the result of a breakdown in the distribution of resources, but the basic human tendency to seek one’s self-interest to the exclusion of others — what we Christians call “sin”.
An atheist who is truly honest cannot define any behavior as objectively wrong, because atheist morality is defined by consensus, not by external authority. Such morality has no enduring plumbline and shifts from generation to generation. What Dr. Messerly calls “moral” today may be overturned within a decade.
Example: To many Germans of the 1930s, exterminating Jews, gays, Gypsys, and the cognitively impaired was not only right and good, but a moral imperative necessary to strengthen the race (an objective they shared with eugenicists of the early 20th century in Britain and the U.S.).
This imperative, not coincidentally, sounds an awful lot like calls from transhumanists to “restrict human breeding”:
Clearly, untold numbers of children…are born to unfit parents.
Those applicants who are deemed unworthy — perhaps because they are homeless, or have drug problems, or are violent criminals, or have no resources to raise a child properly and keep it from going hungry — would not be allowed until they could demonstrate they were suitable parents.
After all, we don’t allow people to drive cars on crack cocaine. Why would we allow them to procreate if they want while on it?
The devil, to borrow a phrase, is in the details. Who defines “suitability”? Yesterday, it was Hitler.
Self-directed evolution, which Dr. Messerly clearly supports, was the vision of the pre-World War II eugenicists. The movement only lost steam because Hitler made it politically incorrect. But obviously the spirit behind it is alive and well.
Dr. Messerly either doesn’t recognize his self-contradictory position or he’s intentionally framing it to conceal his evangelization efforts from those who are sold out to the false gospel of Scientism. He doesn’t actually foresee a future without religion. In fact, he is not without religion himself, and he recognizes that life has no meanin without faith:
Nature gave birth to consciousness, and consciousness comes to know nature. Through this interaction of the universe and the minds that emerge from it, reality comes to know itself. Surely this story is profound enough to satisfy our metaphysical longings. And it has an added benefit over mythological accounts—it’s based on science.
What is our role in this story? We are the protagonists of the evolutionary epic; determining its course is our destiny. We should willingly embrace our role as agents of evolutionary change, helping evolution to realize new possibilities. We are not an end, but a beginning. We are as links in a chain leading upward to higher forms of being and consciousness. This is our hope, this gives our lives meaning.
Dr. Messerly is firmly grounded on the wrong side of history. He’s merely repackaging the oldest lie in the Book: Ye shall be as gods.
Two very interesting Video explanations ^Top is ”conventional” understanding, the video below is not.
In 2011, 1 in 25 Americans was arrested. In a few years, if the FBI has its way, the federal government will possess the DNA of all of those people and more. Under the radar of most lawmakers and journalists, the Bureau—with private industry and congress’ help—is pushing the most massive expansion of biometric state surveillance since the invention of the fingerprint.
A terrible Supreme Court ruling in Maryland v King says to the contrary: we should be very, very alarmed. As Justice Scalia noted in his dissent, “Make no mistake about it: because of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason.”
Never mind the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and other basic freedoms that uphold parents’ rights to make decisions about the health care their children receive.
Never mind the evidence that vaccines aren’t as effective as their makers have promised.
Shutter to think, according to the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice, “the theory of ‘herd immunity’ is failing or was flawed to begin with” while a 2014 Council on Foreign Relations report found:
“the most highly vaccinated populations are also those with the greatest number of outbreaks for those same infectious diseases. This was especially the case for measles, mumps, rubella, polio and pertussis outbreaks,” with the U.S. Canada and rest of the Western world leading the list.
Never mind all that.
For many, the measles outbreak at Disneyland is the proof that this matter should no longer be a choice.
Already, an unvaccinated Pasadena woman has been forcibly quarantined after her sister contracted measles.
But it is going further.
USA Today columnist Alex Berezow boldly proclaimed:
Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail.
Anti-vaxxers often claim the right not to put “poison” in their children’s bodies. That is ludicrous. A mountain of data has demonstrated that vaccines are safe and effective. Insisting otherwise is akin to believing that the moon landing was faked.
Tell that to the parents of Keira Driscoll, a five year who died from very strain of the flu that she was vaccinated against just three days after receiving an immunization.
Or the 15,000 families that have had little other recourse than to file claims in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program after serious injury or death to their child since the program was created in 1988.
The media will no doubt point out the many well meaning parents who believed the “rumors” about the MMR vaccine jab being linked with autism – stirred up by the research of Dr. Wakefield, who was accused of fraud and stripped of his medical license.
But the media will probably NOT be pointing out the revelations of the CDC whistleblower who just admitted that the massive study conducted by the CDC to especially to counter the alleged link between MMR and autism was itself fraudulent, and fudged the data to hide increases in autism risk tied to certain statistical populations. Lawsuits have since been filed.
Few have heard the leaked audio of the same CDC whistleblower discussing research linking “tics” linked to mercury in vaccines, noting that he would personally NEVER give his own pregnant wife a flu shot (which contains mercury as the preservative thimerosal). Doctors, however, recommend that pregnant women receive the shot.
But for the masses, those are just background issues most will never even be aware of.
The drumbeat is mounting for a new push to legitimize vaccinations, and recoup the profits that have been lost to falling vaccination rates and, as usual, by scaring up an issue.
God help us. Society is made up of sheep.
Speaking in a press release, IRIS ID CEO Charles Koo said he and the rest of his team were proud to accept the award, adding, “At IRIS ID, we strive to enable greater adoption of IRIS recognition across multiple sectors by leveraging the accuracy and non-contact nature of iris biometrics in application of mobility, identity management and cloud capabilities to best address our customer’s evolving requirements.”
While much recent retail technology buzz has focused on the promise and peril of Apple’s iBeacons, another identity tech has matured: facial recognition. It’s now powerful enough to let stores use cameras to link customers’ faces to information stored in databases—but it’s also finding use in industrial and transportation settings, where it can be used to keep people away from sensitive areas. But are we ready for this tech to start linking personal data with our faces without our knowledge?
Thursday January 29 2015, 19:12:28 UTC 4 hours ago Eastern Saudi Arabia 4.2 40.0
A moderately strong solar flare reaching M2.1 at its peak time erupted from Region 2268 on January 29, 2015. The event started at 11:32, peaked at 11:42 and ended at 11:52 UTC.
As with all the previous M-class flares from this region in the past few days, this latest event had no associated radio signatures that would indicate a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced.
In the ancient plains of Shinar, an evil was born: the first world king, the prototype transhuman, the ultimate despot, the Son of Perdition—Nimrod. In Babylon, the Son of Perdition devised the Shinar Directive: the enslaving of humanity and the war against the God of Heaven. God’s intervention at the Tower of Babel only delayed Nimrod’s hellish plans. As the powers of Mystery Babylon gather to create the new Tower of Babel and to prepare for the Son of Perdition’s return, Heaven is issuing a clarion call to the Remnant: Know the strategies of the enemy, untangle yourself from them, and become the victorious Church!
