With just a single warrant, a Florida detective obtained access to the DNA profiles of more than a million people — and experts say the case sets a dangerous precedent.
Ancestry.com and 23andMe are the largest consumer DNA sites, holding genetic data on 15 million and 10 million people, respectively. However, they aren’t the only DNA sites out there — a smaller service, GEDmatch, currently has about 1.3 million users, each of whom is able to search the site’s entire database.
In May, GEDmatch changed its policies so that law enforcement officials could only search the profiles of people who opted into such searches, which GEDmatch co-founder Curtis Rogers recently told The New York Times about 185,000 users have done.
Prior to the change, police famously used GEDMatch to crack the case of the Golden State Killer, resulting in the arrest of a suspect in April 2018. Detective Michael Fields had also used the database to solve a case prior to the May change and was hopeful it might help with a new one he was investigating in July.
To that end, Fields decided to ask a Florida judge to grant him a warrant that would override the new policy, allowing him to search GEDmatch’s entire database, including users who hadn’t opted in — and Judge Patricia Strowbridge did just that, the detective announced at a recent police convention, according to the NYT….
Internet censorship by authoritarian governments prohibits free and open access to information for millions of people around the world. Attempts to evade such censorship have turned into a continually escalating race to keep up with ever-changing, increasingly sophisticated internet censorship. Censoring regimes have had the advantage in that race, because researchers must manually search for ways to circumvent censorship, a process that takes considerable time.
New work led by University of Maryland computer scientists could shift the balance of the censorship race. The researchers developed a tool called Geneva (short for Genetic Evasion), which automatically learns how to circumvent censorship. Tested in China, India and Kazakhstan, Geneva found dozens of ways to circumvent censorship by exploiting gaps in censors’ logic and finding bugs that the researchers say would have been virtually impossible for humans to find manually.
The researchers will introduce Geneva during a peer-reviewed talk at the Association for Computing Machinery’s 26th Conference on Computer and Communications Security in London on November 14, 2019….
Needless to say such a system is increasingly needed in “the land of the free”.
In the wake of a firestorm of criticism being heaped upon mainstream media companies ABC and CBS as a result of their response to a leaked video featuring ABC anchor Amy Robach, more and more people are awakening to the possibility that Mainstream Media is more in the business of hiding the critical truths humanity needs to know rather than reporting on them. Indeed, phrases like ‘the news you need to know’ is sounding more like a parent shielding children from information that would actually help them grow up….
‘Leaker’ Gets Fired
ABC’s efforts to ‘rectify’ the situation has only left them with more egg on their face. It is no surprise that they completely discount Robach’s claim that outside influence (Buckingham Palace) had any bearing on their decision not to air the interview, as well as Rorbach’s claim that this interview really ‘had everything’; but if Robach’s claims were just their anchor’s erroneous and self-inflating testimony about the integrity and value of her story, would the network really have reason to be so upset that this video came out?
In a move designed to clearly send a message to other would-be leakers of ‘sensitive’ internal information, ABC has worked hard to identify the employee suspected of leaking the Robach video to watchdog group Project Veritas.
Their investigation led them to Ashley Bianco, a former producer on ABC’s “Good Morning America” who joined “CBS This Morning” last month. After ABC executives informed their counterparts at CBS of their suspicions, she lost her job.
There’s just one problem, though. Bianco adamantly denies that she is the leaker….
By now, it is exceedingly obvious that the global elite absolutely hate Donald Trump. No president in U.S. history has faced such a relentless assault by the corporate media, and there have been attempts to sabotage his presidency at every turn. Miraculously, Trump has survived all of these attacks so far, but now the specter of impeachment looms large over his administration. The Democrats have a solid majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, they are working quickly toward drafting articles of impeachment, and they actually hope to have Trump impeached by Christmas Day. But in order to have Trump removed from office, 67 votes will be needed in the Senate, and right now Democrats only control 47 of those seats. It was always going to be tough for Democrats to get 20 Republicans in the Senate to turn on Trump, but they have bungled this process so badly that they might not end up getting any at all.
That scenario will become even more likely if House Republicans stand solidly united behind Trump, and at this point even the Washington Post is admitting that there is a possibility “that not a single House Republican” will vote for the articles of impeachment…
Congressional Republicans are sticking with their party leader in the face of thousands of pages of evidence showing President Trump leveraged foreign policy for political favors, raising the possibility that not a single House Republican will vote for his impeachment.
Of course it will only take a simple majority to impeach Trump in the House, and Democrats will be able to do that with no problem, but it appears that the effort to remove Trump will be completely dead when it gets to the Senate.
Yes, things could still change and this is a very fluid situation, but as things stand today it seems that Trump is safe.
So what are the elite going to do if impeachment fails?
They are facing the prospect that Trump could actually win again in 2020, and that would mean that he would remain in the White House until January 2025.
For many among the elite, such a scenario must be avoided at all costs. And the quickest way to get the general public to turn on any president is for the economy to crumble.
This is one of the reasons why some prominent voices on the left have been openly wishing for a recession. For example, just check out what Bill Maher said not too long ago…
“I’ve been saying for about two years that I hope we have a recession and people get mad at me,” said Maher, a multimillionaire who would likely be well insulated from a financial downturn.
“I’m just saying we can survive a recession,” he continued. “We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president! They don’t last forever, You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”
Maher is literally wishing for economic pain for more than 300 million Americans just so that another four years of Trump can be avoided.
That is how obsessed some of these radicals are with getting rid of Trump.
And without a doubt, the performance of the economy could be Trump’s Achilles heel. Whenever any piece of good economic news comes out, he eagerly takes credit for it, and he has publicly warned that there will be an economic crash if a Democrat wins in 2020……
Most likely it’s out of his control even if he remains in office. He’s not even in control of his administration. But in any case, friends won’t let friends believe Trump is responsible. It has been carefully engineered, decades in coming and the payoff will be astronomical if it goes as planned.
The invisible uberlords’ attempts to normalize and even idealize their compulsions and belief systems would be the stuff of comedy if it wasn’t so deadly serious. This is why you should be very careful when your children might come into contact with strangers. The network is almost unbelievably vast, well funded and acts with total impunity. The most mind-blowing aspect of their social structure is that they are all enslaved to the system they inhabit. Given the peasants’ predictable revulsion and hatred of their lifestyle, they are readily imprisoned by blackmail even if they want out. This is why a truth and reconciliation approach is probably the only way to begin dealing with the problem. And deal with it we must if we are to survive as a species.
Will Ferrell’s Comedy Skit About Child Trafficking is Disgusting (video)
In a deeply disturbing “comedy skit”, Will Ferrell rents clown children to people and jokes about molesting them. Pure Hollywood sickness.
Will Ferrell has been yelling in our ears for decades and has made tons of money doing so. He starred in about seven thousand movies where he played the same exact role of a loud-mouth rube and people laughed every time.
But not this time. This time, it was deeply unfunny. Because this is not a “comedy skit”, this is a window into their souls. It is an exposure of the true nature of Hollywood and those who run it. Here it is.
In this AdultSwim comedy skit, Will Ferrell is the owner of a “child clown outlet” who rents clown kids to people. Throughout this annoying skit, Ferrell says that the kids are “his seed” and jokes about “touching” them…..
Eric Ciaramella, the so-called whistleblower at the center of the Ukraine debacle, hosted a White House meeting in January 2016 with Ukrainian officials demanding that the prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden be fired in exchange for an IMF loan.
The revelation is corroborated by White House visitor logs and reporting by The Hill’s John Solomon, who first reported last spring that a meeting took place between Obama officials and Ukrainian investigators to discuss Joe Biden and Burisma Holdings, the energy company whose board his son Hunter presided over.
According to Solomon, Andrii Telizhenko, then a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, said that U.S. officials told the Ukrainians to drop the Burisma probe and allow the FBI to take it over.
The other case raised at the January 2016 meeting, Telizhenko said, involved Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company under investigation in Ukraine for improper foreign transfers of money. At the time, Burisma allegedly was paying then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter as both a board member and a consultant. More than $3 million flowed from Ukraine to an American firm tied to Hunter Biden in 2014-15, bank records show.
According to Telizhenko, U.S. officials told the Ukrainians they would prefer that Kiev drop the Burisma probe and allow the FBI to take it over. The Ukrainians did not agree. But then Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire Ukraine’s chief prosecutor in March 2016, as I previously reported. The Burisma case was transferred to NABU, then shut down.
According to White House visitor logs, the only meeting mentioning Telizhenko in January 2016 was hosted by none other than Eric Ciaramella, who was found in the logs visiting the White House over 200 times that year.
As attorney Robert Barnes noted, this is precisely the reason why the Democrats don’t want the whistleblower to testify — he was directly involved in the plot to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden.
“More evidence emerges that the reason the media want to hide the name of the whistleblower is an honest investigation into Ukraine-Biden corruption would expose the whistleblower’s own personal role in criminal conduct. This is why we don’t allow secret accusers in America,” Barnes tweeted Monday….
Again, you don’t have to agree with everything or even anything Trump does to see the breathtaking level of hypocrisy and flat out lying by the dems. It’s as if they expect you to believe this isn’t a fascist death squad narco state run by satanic pedophiles, largely thanks to the complicity of people like pelosi and schumer.
Trump is a newcomer, he isn’t responsible for the dire state of this country, the MSM’s heros are.
It’s a sickening spectacle.
The high-profile and decorated medical examiner who supervised the New York City autopsy of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein revealed in a shocking interview that no definitive DNA tests were performed on the disgraced sex trafficker during the autopsy — or anytime after the pedophile’s reported prison-cell suicide.
Dr. Michael Baden, the former New York City medical examiner hired by the Epstein family to oversee the autopsy, said in a new interview that no DNA test was performed on Epstein to confirm the identity of the Justice Department’s highest profile suspect who died mysteriously in federal custody.
Shockingly, Dr. Baden — who worked on hundreds of high-profile cases during a five-decade medical career — added:
“He (Epstein) was brought there (to the Coroner’s office) from the prison and had been previously identified in the prison,” Baden said during an exclusive interview. “Now, if somebody switched the body in the prison, you know that’s beyond our expertise.”…
There’s an escalating government assault on our stem cells and we should all be very concerned about it.
Most people probably associate stem cells with religious debates over embryos and fetuses. However, we all have stem cells inside of us that many contend can be extracted, processed and re-administered as as medical service. These are called autologous or “personal” stem cells. Current Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance, however, essentially classifies our stem cells as “drugs,” thus preventing us from freely using them as we wish.
The FDA magically turned our cells into “drugs” in 2006 by changing one word in 21 CFR 1271, the regulatory framework that governs stem cells. It was an act that occurred without public commentary and conferred an authority upon the FDA that Congress never intended it to have. In the Journal of Translational Medicine, Michael Freeman and Mitchell Fuerst referred to the word change as a “semantic sleight of hand.” In their 2012 paper, those same authors warned us that the FDA wasn’t done expanding its regulatory authority over our stem cells. Given recent FDA actions like its restrictive 2017 SCT guidance, the issuance of warning letters to clinics using autologous SCT and the litigation against SCT clinics, Freeman and Fuerst’s words ring eerily prophetic.
Indeed, at the urging of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as well as others in the private sector, the FDA has recently increased its enforcement actions against clinics offering SCT. With the assistance of certain corporate media outlets, a distinct cadre of vocal SCT regulationists have methodically deployed disinformation campaigns, unsubstantiated invective and pejorative terms such as “rogue,” “unproven,” “wild west,” “unregulated” “illegitimate,” “dangerous” and “snake oil” in an effort transform to the term “stem cell clinic” into a scary slur.
The SCT regulationist assault comes principally from the FDA, whose regulations and guidance unduly restrict access to personal SCT and hurt more people than they purport to protect. In fact, the actual reported cases of harm from SCT are remarkably few, while many patients express satisfaction with treatment. Likewise, academic publications like Stem Cell Reports have joined the regulationist phalanx, publishing a pseudo-scientific study suggesting that online platforms such as YouTube should summarily suppress or eliminate content containing positive testimonials about SCT. Google has recently joined the authoritarian online censorship campaign against SCT. Similarly, the Canadian Medical Association Journal published a SCT fearmongering case report with unsubstantiated generalizations about the “dangers” of SCT. Bioethicists and scientists also play active roles in the regulationist cadre, arguing for SCT crowdfunding censorship by GoFundMe and baselessly asserting how unscrupulous, bad-actor stem cell clinicians use deceptive marketing practices to exploit desperate patients….
NBC, ABC and CBS News have all now appeared to run cover for some of the world’s most powerful rape rings, allegedly killing stories and firing employees who tried to expose the outlets.
As three of America’s biggest networks, these outlets have each become embroiled in controversy in 2019 following multiple separate reports that they have played a part in covering up some of the world’s most powerful rape and pedophile rings.
The allegations range from killing entire stories outing disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, shutting down an interview detailing accusations against alleged child sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and firing an employee who might have tried to hold an outlet responsible.
- Buckingham Palace Threatened ABC to Kill Epstein-Linked Prince Andrew Story, Anchor Recorded as Saying
First, investigative reporter Ronan Farrow came out with a book on Oct. 15 titled “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators.” The book accused NBC News of covering up Farrow’s story about the sexual assault allegations surrounding now-disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. It is based on Farrow’s article published in The New Yorker in 2017. He was allowed to publish his story in The New Yorker while still working at NBC News, the outlet said in a previous statement.
“Catch and Kill” makes serious allegations against NBC News, detailing how Weinstein allegedly pressured the outlet into dropping a story because he knew of former NBC host Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual misconduct.
4. As I noted in this thread, ABC News has confirmed they’re conducting an investigation into the leak.
In response to an email, CBS News says they’re declining to comment for this story. https://t.co/OHEoyahppY

NBC News denied killing the story to protect itself, but Farrow noted that “there is proof and a paper trail” detailed in the book. The news dropped shortly before the book’s Oct. 15 release, causing a fallout that included NBC News agreeing to release former employees who had made sexual assault accusations against people at the network.
“Any former NBC News employee who believes that they cannot disclose their experience with sexual harassment as a result of a confidentiality or non-disparagement provision in their separation agreement should contact NBCUniversal and we will release them from that perceived obligation,” an NBCUniversal spokesperson said, according to Rachel Maddow on Oct. 25.
The outlet also received pushback for refusing to allow an outside investigation into NBC News following the allegations. Journalist Megyn Kelly went after NBC News on Oct. 16, saying the network should “show us the money” and come clean about any and all agreements made to former staffers. She added that there “needs to be an outside investigation into” the network, mentioning that several other outlets with allegations of scandals have done the same in the past.
Weinstein has an upcoming rape trial in January. If convicted, he faces life in prison.
Just a few months later, ABC News was accused of killing a story about the late alleged child sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein after Project Veritas released a video of anchor Amy Robach complaining about the network. Robach was caught on camera saying ABC killed her interview with Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, according to the video.
“I’ve had this story for three years,” Robach said in the unearthed video. “I tried for three years to get it on to no avail, and now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations. And I freaking had all of it. I’m so pissed right now.”
The anchor said Buckingham Palace threatened ABC News after finding out Prince Andrew was a part of the story and added that she “had all of” the reporting years ago. ABC News denied this, saying in a statement that it has “never stopped investigating the story.” They added that it has employed a team to uncover the truth about Epstein, whom authorities arrested on accusations of child sex-trafficking in July.
The network said it plans to release extensive reports on Epstein in the new year. Robach also walked back her on-camera remarks, releasing a statement echoing the network’s comments. She attributed to her previous accusations as being “a private moment of frustration.”

Robach added that ABC didn’t run the interview “because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standard about her allegations.” This statement came after she said she “had all of it” and knew of the allegations against Epstein for “three years.”
Epstein died of an apparent suicide while in a Manhattan jail cell Aug. 10, although many have questioned whether his death was really a suicide.
The outlet is now investigating who leaked the video, it said in a statement to journalist Yashar Ali on Wednesday.
“We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we’re pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak,” a spokesperson for ABC News said, according to Ali.
CBS News is the latest to appear to have run cover for a huge rape ring when it allegedly fired a former ABC employee Wednesday who had access to Robach’s tape. The outlet declined to comment to Page Six, it reported Thursday.
The employee who reportedly accessed the tape moved on to a job at CBS News, anonymous sources told Ali. CBS fired that employee, a woman, Wednesday after ABC executives notified CBS of the situation, a TV source said, Page Six reported.
None of the outlets replied to a request for comment.
