How The Jussie Smollett Hoax Reveals The Scope Of The Surveillance State

As the Jussie Smollett hoax has taken over the media, and the ramifications of such deception are yet to be felt in full, one aspect of the exposure has been largely ignored.

As Activist Post has previously covered, there is a new type of court case that has been slowly but steadily emerging within the American legal system: alleged crimes being detected from data supplied by the interconnected network of government surveillance combined with a range of smart home devices. This appears to be rewriting the very nature of the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution.

Ignoring for just a moment the outcome and the scandalous nature of the Smollett situation, Courthouse News reveals how our modern technology is changing the approach to justice right before our eyes, as well as the See Something, Say Something citizen watch program.  This is the new surveillance state writ large, my emphasis added:

CHICAGO (AP) — Police tapped into Chicago’s vast network of surveillance cameras — and even some homeowners’ doorbell cameras — to track down two brothers who claimed they were paid by “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett to stage an attack on him, the latest example of the city’s high-tech approach to public safety.

Officers said they reviewed videos from more than four dozen cameras to trace the brothers’ movements before and after the reported attack, determining where they lived and who they were before arresting them a little more than two weeks later….

SCANDAL: Studies that prove the dangers of vaccines NEGLECTED by government and health officials

(Natural News) For years, the mainstream media has been colluding with Big Pharma and their medical industry shills to keep the dangers of vaccines under wraps. Under pro-vaccine dogma, there is no room for questions about the validity of vaccine science bought and paid for by vaccine makers. And certainly, there is no respect for independent scientists who dare to challenge the narrative that vaccines are flawless inventions with no potential to cause harm.

Health agencies and other research groups have come under fire for cherry-picking data and even for committing fraud to advance the vaccine agenda. But a new report has blown the lid off a massive scandal — in which Public Health England, a core United Kingdom Department of Health and Social Care agency, deliberately failed to publicize the results of their research on vaccine safety.

In fact, it turns out over 50 percent of the researchers involved with the clinical trials never even reported their results. Perhaps they weren’t happy with the outcomes and thought they could just memory-hole the truth, as the CDC did with its MMR research

Et tu, Bernie? Sanders shamed for joining US hawks in Venezuela regime change push

The self-described democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is now getting grief from his supporters for apparently aligning himself with the Trump administration and its regime change efforts in Venezuela.

Having announced a 2020 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination this week, Sanders (I-Vermont) digressed from his twitter storm about healthcare, wage inequality and taxing the rich to endorse US “humanitarian aid” for Venezuela, which the Trump administration is using to bolster the self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido….
