10 Reasons to Use Linux Mint
by Martins D. Okoi
Posted September 22, 2020

good reasons to use Linux MintLinux Mint is 100% free and open-source so you are well within your right to use it for whatever you choose whether it is for educating people, understanding operating systems better, or for providing proprietary services.

Together with elegance, simplicity, and reliability, security and privacy are at the core of Linux Mint’s philosophy and the developers have made sure that all services running in the OS are respectful of users’ rights to data privacy.

Users are bound to feel at home, or at least, welcome, when using Linux Mint because of its familiar setup to that of Windows. Its configuration and navigation options don’t use text different from other operating systems so it is easy to find what one is looking for. To put in simpler terms, from the time you install the Linux Mint to your first boot, you wouldn’t feel lost and will be able to find your away around without outside help whether you are coming from a Windows, macOS, or non-Linux platform.

The Global Elite Have Far More Control Over Us Than Most People Would Dare To Imagine

The Global Elite Have Far More Control Over Us Than Most People Would Dare To Imagine
by Michael Snyder
Posted September 21, 2020

Elites have more control then we thinkNo matter where you fall on the political spectrum, you probably agree that the global elite have too much power and influence. It has been said that “money is power”, and today that seems to be more true than ever. Those at the very, very top of the pyramid dictate the rules of the game for the rest of us, and there isn’t too much that the rest of us can do about it. When we talk about how the global elite dominate our lives, the focus tends to be on how they influence national governments, but the truth is that is one of the areas where the global elite have the least control. I know that may sound strange, but I believe that things will become clearer by the end of this article.

I would submit that corporations are the primary vehicle that the elite use to control our lives. In fact, many global corporations are now larger and more powerful than most national governments, and collectively the network of global corporations that dominates the planet is far larger and far more powerful than any single national government.

A number of years ago, a remarkable study was conducted that closely examined the interconnecting relationships of major corporations all over the world. That study discovered that a network of 1,318 enormous companies dominated the global economy, and it also found that 147 colossal corporations at the core of that web formed a “super-entity” that controlled 40 percent of the entire network… More…

The Pandemic Pattern – How the Illusion is Built

The Pandemic Pattern – How the Illusion is Built
by Jon Rappoport
Posted September 20, 2020

creating an illusionThis article is based on my study and investigation of so-called epidemics over the past 30 years. In the case of COVID-19, I’ve written at least one piece covering, in detail, each main element of the illusion. Here, I’m laying out the pattern. It is the same for each fake epidemic.

Researchers can babble for hours about their vaunted diagnostic test, the PCR. However, the simple truth is, the test has never been vetted. The test has never been tested in the real world outside the lab.

I have written about this extensively. Using a little guideline called SCIENCE, you would “test the test” by lining up, say, a thousand patients, some healthy, some sick from a supposed virus. Any virus. Tissue samples would be taken from each patient.

I include this illustration to indicate there are, indeed, ways of exposing professional liars, if you change the venue on them, if you use common sense, if you stand outside their self-appointed temples of mystical pretense and observe what their lies look like when you boil them down to human terms.

The Microsoft Police State: Mass Surveillance, Facial Recognition, and the Azure Cloud

The Microsoft Police State: Mass Surveillance, Facial Recognition, and the Azure Cloud
by Michael Kwet
Posted September 17, 2020

Microsoft Advanced Patrol Platform, or MAPPNationwide protests against racist policing have brought new scrutiny onto big tech companies like Facebook, which is under boycott by advertisers over hate speech directed at people of color, and Amazon, called out for aiding police surveillance. But Microsoft, which has largely escaped criticism, is knee-deep in services for law enforcement, fostering an ecosystem of companies that provide police with software using Microsoft’s cloud and other platforms. The full story of these ties highlights how the tech sector is increasingly entangled in intimate, ongoing relationships with police departments.

Microsoft’s links to law enforcement agencies have been obscured by the company, whose public response to the outrage that followed the murder of George Floyd has focused on facial recognition software. This misdirects attention away from Microsoft’s own mass surveillance platform for cops, the Domain Awareness System, built for the New York Police Department and later expanded to Atlanta, Brazil, and Singapore. It also obscures that Microsoft has partnered with scores of police surveillance vendors who run their products on a “Government Cloud” supplied by the company’s Azure division and that it is pushing platforms to wire police field operations, including drones, robots, and other devices.

Julian Assange, Prometheus Bound

Julian Assange, Prometheus Bound
by Pepe Escobar
Posted September 8, 2020

guilty of telling the tuthThis is the tale of an Ancient Greek tragedy reenacted in AngloAmerica.

Amid thundering silence and nearly universal indifference, chained, immobile, invisible, a squalid Prometheus was transferred from the gallows for a show trial in a faux Gothic court built on the site of a medieval prison.

Kratos, impersonating Strength, and Bia, impersonating Violence, had duly chained Prometheus, not to a mountain in the Caucasus, but to solitary confinement in a high-security prison, subject to relentless psychological torture. All along the Western watchtowers, no Hephaestus volunteered to forge in his smithy a degree of reluctance or even a sliver of pity.

Prometheus is being punished not for stealing fire – but for exposing power under the light of truth, thus provoking the unbounded ire of Zeus The Exceptionalist, who’s only able to stage his crimes under multiple veils of secrecy. More…

The U.S.-Supported Coup in Bolivia Continues to Produce Repression and Tyranny, While Revealing How U.S. Media Propaganda Works

The U.S.-Supported Coup in Bolivia Continues to Produce Repression and Tyranny, While Revealing How U.S. Media Propaganda Works
by Glenn Greenwald
Posted September 5, 2020, 2020

US installed coup presidentThe U.S.-supported military coup in Bolivia has largely disappeared from western news outlets ever since the November 2019 massacres of pro-democracy protesters by the right-wing faction that seized power. But for Bolivians, the repression and tyranny that replaced their stable and thriving democracy endures. And, predictably, the “interim president” installed after the coup, Jeanine Áñez, continues to rule the country 10 months later, despite no possibility of being democratically elected, while she and her party plot how to prevent an election which all polls show will result in victory for the socialist party of toppled President Evo Morales.

Bolivia is but the latest of a long line of thriving, stable democracies destroyed with the support if not the outright participation of the U.S. government, while jingoistic media figures disseminated the propaganda used to justify it all. And the suffering, violence, repression and tyranny left in its wake are then simply ignored by those who helped bring it about. More…

COVID-19: Closer to the Truth: Tests and Immunity

COVID-19: Closer to the Truth: Tests and Immunity
By Dr. Pascal Sacré
Posted August 17, 2020

media manipulation of covid fearThe number of positive RT-PCR tests, which diagnose the presence of pieces [fragments] of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, is equated in the press and government reports with the number of new COVID-19 cases. This is not entirely true. This is misleading. It suggests a resurgence of the disease. COVID-19 is the name of the disease.

The RT-PCR test is just a means of detecting SARS-CoV-2, and that test is unreliable. Some people are asymptomatic, or with mild symptoms. Testing positive, which is already subject to interpretation, does not mean “sick”. Other doctors, including virologists, say so and warn of the current danger of this confusion maintained by official bodies.

The tests (screening, diagnosis, immunity) symbolize the blind and total belief in the omnipotence of technical medicine and technology. This illusion is maintained by industry, by some doctors and by the media. More…

How Do We Change the Leadership of our Quasi-Sovereign Big Tech Neofeudal Nobility?

How Do We Change the Leadership of our Quasi-Sovereign Big Tech Neofeudal Nobility?
by Charles Hugh Smith
Posted August 16, 2020

Government is now controlled by mediaUnlike the old monopolies like Standard Oil, the quasi-sovereign Big Tech platforms are the media, so there’s nothing left to balance their skyrocketing power. As we discuss in the podcast, their control is (in Jesse’s term) molecular, so they’ve effectively dismantled the legacy social-political structures such as working class, middle class, etc.

With mass media replaced by Big Tech’s data-flow / behavioral-control molecular media, political coherence has been lost, and so divide-and conquer control mechanisms are now essentially infinite: any group, no matter how coherent, can be splintered into warring fragments by the Big Tech Neofeudal Nobility.

After all, they have the data and they can use it however they want, with no limits or controls by users, citizens or nominally democratic governments. More…

Facebook Files Patent for System That Hides Audio Clips in TV Ads to Trigger Phones to Record Background Noise

Facebook Files Patent for System That Hides Audio Clips in TV Ads to Trigger Phones to Record Background Noise

FaceBook spying app patentFacebook is known for being creepy – to say the least. They recently admitted to wrongly sharing user data with 3rd party apps AGAIN. A lawsuit has also been filed against the company and others for “Endangering Humanity with the misuse of Artificial Intelligence, Complicity and Aiding in Physical Genocide inside of China by transferring AI Technology, Engaging in Cultural Genocide of Humanity, & Controlling and programming the Human Race by Social Engineering via AI coding and AI algorithmic biometric manipulation.”

No matter how many times company spokespeople apologize and promise to do better – it doesn’t take long before the company decides to be creepy again.

Facebook has filed a patent for a system that hides audio clips in TV commercials. These sounds would be so high-pitched that they are inaudible to human beings. They would then trigger your phone to record all the background noises in your home. The patent application is called “broadcast content view analysis based on ambient audio recording.” More…

same puppet master pulling strings on both sides

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

main stream media propaganda

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
