Earlier this year, I warned people that the city of San Diego had been turned into a massive Chinese-Style public surveillance network, complete with facial recognition, spying streetlights, license plate readers and a police-run public watchlisting network.
But what I failed to mention is who is really behind it
The City of San Diego, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Vincent A. Coglianese signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on “Smart City” technologies such as unmanned aircraft systems, spying smart streetlights and the city’s’ “Get It Done” app.
This disturbing partnership is actually referred to as the Marine Corps Installation Command or MCIC not an MOU.
Why does the U.S. Military wants to turn the entire city of San Diego into an enormous surveillance city? Because they have two installations within the city’s boundary: the Marine Corps Air Station and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot.
According to NBC 7, the Marine Corps is very proud of turning San Diego into a spying smart city.Close up of spying smart streetlights (approx 1:15)
When our military starts claiming they are part of the community and they have our best interests at heart, everyone should shudder.
The U.S. military has a long and checkered history of ignoring the public and doing whatever it wants, as The Atlantic warned,
“My concern is this growing disconnect between the American people and our military,” retired Admiral Mike Mullen said.
According to the MCIC, the Marine Corps plan for “supporting the community” is to work with law enforcement and corporations to help develop and produce surveillance drones and spying streelights.
The Marine Corps also plans to conduct monthly conference calls with city officials (law enforcement) to address issues and action plans regarding “protection/security, mobility and public works.”
Two years ago, when I warned everyone that the CIA and Homeland Security were working together to create smart cities, most people did not want to believe it.
But not even the most skeptical observer could ignore what is staring them in the face.
The U.S. military, the CIA and Homeland Security are all working together, perfecting their brand of smart city surveillance on Americans.
The Chinese military openly works with smart city development, collaborating on new ways to spy on their citizens. So how is that any different than what is happening in America? …
Parts of the documentary Modified are spent at the kitchen table. But it’s not really a tale about wonderful recipes or the preparation of food. Ultimately, it’s a story of capitalism, money and power and how our most basic rights are being eroded by unscrupulous commercial interests.
The film centres on its maker, Aube Giroux, who resides in Nova Scotia, Canada. Her interest in food and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) was inspired by her mother, Jali, who also appears throughout. Aube says that when her parents bought their first house her mother immediately got rid of the lawn and planted a huge garden where she grew all kinds of heirloom vegetables, berries, flowers, legumes and garlic.
“She wanted me and my sister to grow up knowing the story behind the food that we ate, so our backyard was basically our grocery store,” says Aube.
During the film, we are treated not only to various outdoor scenes of the Giroux’s food garden (their ‘grocery store’) but also to Aube and her mother’s passion for preparing homemade culinary delights. The ‘backyard’ is the grocery store and much of Giroux family life revolves around the kitchen and the joy of healthy, nutritious food.
When GMOs first began appearing in food, Aube says that what bothered her mother was that some of the world’s largest chemical companies were patenting these new genetically engineered seeds and controlling the seed market.
In the film, Aube explains,
“Farmers who grow GMOs have to sign technology license agreements promising never to save or replant the patented seeds. My mom didn’t think it was a good idea to allow corporations to engineer and then patent the seeds that we rely on for food. She believed that seeds belong in the hands of people.”
As the GMO issue became prominent, Aube became more interested in the subject. It took her 10 years to complete the film, which is about her personal journey of discovery into the world of GMOs. The film depicts a world that is familiar to many of us; a place where agritech industry science and money talk, politicians and officials are all too eager to listen and the public interest becomes a secondary concern.
Watch the trailer of Modified below.
In 2001, Canada’s top scientific body, The Royal Society, released a scathing report that found major problems with the way GMOs were being regulated. The report made 53 recommendations to the government for fixing the regulatory system and bringing it in line with peer reviewed science and the precautionary principle, which says new technologies should not be approved when there is uncertainty about their long-term safety. To date, only three of these recommendations have been implemented.
Throughout the film, we see Aube making numerous phone calls, unsuccessfully trying to arrange an interview to discuss these issues with Health Canada, the department of the government of Canada that is responsible for national public health.
Meanwhile, various people are interviewed as the story unfolds. We are told about the subverting of regulatory agencies in the US when GMOs first appeared on the scene in the early 1990s: the Food and Drug Administration ignored the warnings of its own scientists, while Monsanto flexed its political muscle to compromise the agency by manoeuvring its own people into positions of influence….

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – In recent weeks the Pakistani health authorities have been trying to control the HIV epidemic that developed in the south of the country after the virus was diagnosed in about 700 people, most of them children.
Local health officials believe the apidemia can be traced back, in part, to unsterilized syringes used for vaccination programs on children in the southern Sindh province. This event has spread anxiety in Pakistan, a country that has already faced distrust in its health system and skepticism in its immunization programs.
“Initial investigations reveal that used syringes have been repacked, which can not only significantly increase the number of HIV cases but also other diseases,” Zafar Mirza, the highest Pakistani health official said last week . “The use of unsafe syringes could be one of the causes of the spread of the disease, but the government is making extensive efforts to ascertain the exact cause . “…
Nothing new here:
Unsafe healthcare “drives spread of African HIV”
Since the 1980s most experts have assumed that heterosexual sex transmitted 90% of HIV in Africa. In the March International Journal of STD and AIDS, an international team of HIV specialists presents groundbreaking evidence to challenge this consensus, with “profound implications” for public health in Africa.
In a series of articles, Dr David Gisselquist, Mr John Potterat and colleagues argue that the spread of HIV infections in Africa is closely linked to medical care. In their unique study of existing data from across the continent they estimate that only about a third of HIV infections are sexually transmitted. Their evidence suggests that “health care exposures caused more HIV than sexual transmission”, with contaminated medical injections being the biggest risk. …
Those skeptical of Facebook’s creation of their own cryptocurrency have every right to be. The new cryptocurrency, which has been named Libra, has been unveiled, and it’s a dangerous and invasive form of surveillance in the hands of a company known for its privacy concerns and censorship.
Experts have branded the move a dangerous power grab that marks Facebook’s “most invasive” form of surveillance yet. So far, Facebook has enlisted 28 firms, including Spotify and Uber, who each had to invest a minimum of $1o million to be a founding member of the Libra Association, an independent not-for-profit membership organization.
But this will be a hard sell for a company who is determined to silence voices and sell private data to advertisers for a profit. There is no company that should be trusted less than Facebook, other than perhaps Twitter. The unveiling of the Libra cryptocurrency comes just over a year after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which saw the private data of millions of Facebook users manipulated for the purpose of political profiling. Since then, the social network has been plagued by a series of privacy scandals that have continuously called into question the way Facebook handles its users’ data. Facebook’s decision to branch out into this area could potentially open its users up to risks far beyond the privacy scandals of the past….
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has ignited a firestorm of criticism, from both the left and the right as well as the mainstream media, for calling US immigrant detention centers “concentration camps.” To her credit, Ocasio-Cortez has refused to back down, citing academic experts and blasting the Trump administration for forcibly holding undocumented migrants “where they are brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying.” She also cited history. “The US ran concentration camps before, when we rounded up Japanese people during World War II,” she tweeted. “It is such a shameful history that we largely ignore it. These camps occur throughout history.” Indeed they do. What follows is an overview of US civilian concentration camps through the centuries. Prisoner-of-war camps, as horrific as they have been, have been excluded due to their legal status under the Geneva Conventions, and for brevity’s sake….
There is nothing natural about money. There is no link to some scarce essential form of money that sets a limit to its creation. It can be composed of base metal, paper or electronic data – none of which is in short supply. Similarly – despite what you may have heard about the need for austerity and a lack of certain cash-generating trees – there is no “natural” level of public expenditure. The size and reach of the public sector is a matter of political choice.
Which puts austerity, the culling of expenditure in the public economy, under some question. For some countries, such as Greece, the impact of austerity has been devastating. Austerity policies still persist despite numerous studies arguing that they were entirely misconceived, based on political choice rather than economic logic. But the economic case for austerity is equally mistaken: it is based on what can best be described as fairytale economics….
(Natural News) Just as we predicted, Big Tech’s censorship crusade is now breaching the bounds of social media and influencing digital service providers, which are increasingly shutting down access to clients that engage in politically-incorrect speech.
The email service provider Mailchimp, as one of the latest examples, has reportedly shut down the email newsletter of GreenMedInfo, which had been reaching as many as 300,000 people worldwide.
According to GreenMedInfo, the termination was sudden, and was predicated upon Mailchimp’s disapproval of GreenMedInfo sharing scientific information about vaccines that contradicts the official government narrative that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective.
In an announcement, GreenMedInfo‘s Sayer Ji expressed surprise about the development, which he indicated is “the last thing we expected,” seeing as how Mailchimp is supposed to be “apolitical and neutral.”
Ji says that the move “blatantly” violates GreenMedInfo‘s “freedom of speech,” and he’s now encouraging his followers to take action in any way they can.
“After all, you also have the right to enjoy a free newsletter you and 300,000 others around the world voluntarily and enthusiastically subscribed to,” Ji writes.
“Feel free to contact Mailchimp directly, leave a review on Facebook or call them at (678) 999-0141 to let them know how you feel about this. Also, please share this information with those concerned about the growing censorship problem.”

“We do not allow anti-vaccine content on our platform,” was the exact response GreenMedInfo received from Mailchimp upon inquiring about why its newsletter account had been “disabled.” “We cannot support the creation of further accounts,” Mailchimp went on to state….
