“White Hats” Go Public on Car Hacking by Remote Control; David Wilcock Update May 30th

I just checked for a new update from David yesterday morning and… nothing. But now, it’s ready.

I have also been thinking lately about the Michael Hastings murder—and I know it was a murder—-and David has touched on this, as well. 

It’s a very long post;  I’ll get you started here.  ~ BP

On July 14, 2013, we leaked exclusive insider info revealing that all cars made since 2008 can be remote-controlled. Nearly a year later, a group calling themselves “White Hats” has proven this can be done — in a twelve-minute video with Motherboard that just “went viral” on Digg.com.

It is very important that we inform ourselves and spread the truth as it becomes available. By participating in this mass disclosure ourselves, we are helping to ensure a positive outcome.

 

CARS CAN BE REMOTE-CONTROLLED FOR A “CLEAN” ASSASSINATION

Last July, in “Financial Tyranny Collapsing at Free-Fall Speed,” we took the momentum of the Snowden NSA disclosures to reveal a much-deeper secret.

We leaked this intel from personal discussions with insiders who have high-level security clearance — from levels well above the President of the United States.

As astonishing as it may seem, we revealed that all car manufacturers have been forced to install remote-control driving systems in their products since 2008.

Thanks to a still-classified government order, no automobile manufacturer is allowed to produce cars without having these automated systems in place.

 

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

On the positive side, intelligence services can utilize these systems to prevent any would-be bank robber from successfully completing their crime.

 

 

On the negative side, the fiery death of Michael Hastings, a journalist exposing corruption at the highest levels, almost certainly revealed that this technology is also being used for assassinations.

What most people still do not realize is that there is an incredibly vast world of secrets that NSA surveillance and car hacking is being used to conceal.

At the time of this writing, “Financial Tyranny Collapsing” has had 4,576 Facebook Likes, 381 comments and 170,442 unique views — so this was not a “fringe” investigation.

 

Here is a quick bit of review of what we revealed almost a year ago now — and I do recommend reading the whole article for context.

Trans-Pacific Partnership Chapter Released By WikiLeaks: Harper in the Bad Books

trans pacific partnership

While not every Canadian may know precisely what’s going on in their great nation, some very young folks are leading the way in putting a stop to the secret underworld of the dark cabal factions in Canada. Check out the efforts of this determined young woman, Brigette DePape.

Take action as part of the Resistance here.

People have to wake up and realize what the governments of this planet are up to behind closed doors. They have to ask why those involved had to sign a confidentiality agreement to keep the details of this agreement from The People. Common sense tells us that if it were in the best interests of the citizens of the world, then would not feel the NEED to keep it a secret. 

The purpose is to remove even more freedom from The People and hand it to powerful corporations. They must be stopped.  ~ BP

A trade agreement Canada intends to sign will have “far-reaching implications for individual rights and civil liberties,” WikiLeaks says.

The group known around the world for publishing state secrets has released a draft chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal being negotiated under what it calls an “unprecedented level of secrecy.” Critics say the agreement favours corporate interests over consumers.

The leaked intellectual property chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement proposes sweeping reforms including to pharmaceuticals, publishers, patents, copyrights, trademarks, civil liberties and liability of internet service providers.

“If instituted, the TPP’s IP regime would trample over individual rights and free expression, as well as ride roughshod over the intellectual and creative commons,” WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange, said in a press release.

“If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you’re ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs.”

Canada joined TPP negotiations along with Mexico last October. It also includes other Pacific Rim countries Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam but not China. The member countries together represent a market of 792 million people and a GDP of $27.5 trillion, or 40 per cent of the world economy.

Internet freedom organizations, including Canada’s Openmedia.ca, have criticized the TPP’s intellectual property provisions, saying proposals in the agreement would restrict innovation and force internet service providers to police copyright.

WikiLeaks says provisions in the deal would create “supranational” courts that could override member nations’ judicial systems. The courts “have no human rights safeguards,” WikiLeaks stated.

The document contains provisions as well as proposed amendments and opposition from the various countries involved. Canada, for the most part, appears to stand in the majority view on many topics and against many U.S. demands, which were often supported by Australia or Japan.

Canada appears to take a more liberal stance on many issues than its southern neighbour. It supported the objectives of the agreement, which the U.S. and Japan opposed, that include maintaining “a balance between the rights of intellectual property holders and the legitimate interests of users and the community in subject matter protected by intellectual property.”

“From a Canadian perspective, there is good news and bad news,” Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in internet and e-commerce law at the University of Ottawa, wrote on his blog Wednesday morning.

“The good news is that Canada is pushing back against many U.S. demands by promoting provisions that are consistent with current Canadian law … The bad news is that the U.S. — often joined by Australia — is demanding that Canada roll back its recent copyright reform legislation with a long list of draconian proposals.”

Canada also proposed that the chapter’s provisions be compatible with other multilateral treaties including the World Trade Organization and World Health Organization, “especially with regards to measures aimed at protecting public health and protecting equal access to knowledge and food.” Mexico and the U.S. objected.

Meanwhile, the U.S and Australia added an amendment that would force each country to also sign onto 10 different international treaties by the time they enter the TPP. Canada and nine other nations opposed.

WikiLeaks says many of the surveillance and enforcement provisions in the agreement include stringent mechanisms proposed in the controversial U.S. Stop Online Piracy Act and Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

Enforcement measures for policing rights proposed in the document include supranational tribunals, to which national courts would be expected to defer.

The leak of what is perhaps the most controversial chapter of the highly secretive TPP comes ahead of the next round of negotiations in Salt Lake City, Utah from Nov. 19 to 24.

SOPA, or the Stop Online Piracy Act, was a proposed U.S. law that would have allowed the government to create a “blacklist” of copyright-infringing websites it could then block. Critics complained the government would be allowed to censor the internet without judicial oversight.

ACTA, or the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, is a stalled international pact that would greatly increase the power of international bodies to enforce copyright laws. Critics feared the pact would force governments to pass laws that would ban internet users from the web if they were found to be infringing copyright.

Will the NSA Spying End? In Your Dreams…

If you believed Obama’s promises from his speech on Friday, you’re going to be disappointed. They are NOT going to change anything.

The White House ignores most of our petitions, but Obama was forced to respond to this issue due to the press Snowden’s and Greenwald’s surveillance leaks got—even the indignant accusations from world governments—but I didn’t believe a word of it, and neither should you.

That’s not how they operate. They tell us what they know we want to hear, and then they do whatever they want, treading on our laws and the Constitution without fear of reprisal. It’s their MO, and they’re not going to change.

As long as the cabal is in power, they will continue with their grand plan to control the slaves.

It’s one more major issue, however, that’s making the natives restless, and ready to do what needs to be done. The people are seeing more and more reason to distrust the US government and rise up. It’s a process.

I recommend Richard Presser’s summary and articles about this latest tactic to ‘manage’ us and do damage control. Soon there will be so many fires raging they won’t be able to stomp them all out and they’re going to get burned. We’re just now turning up the heat.  ~ BP

The Washington Post and Amazon are “Doing Business with the CIA”

The Washington Post and Amazon are “Doing Business with the CIA”

Global Research, December 18, 2013

News media should illuminate conflicts of interest, not embody them. But the owner of the Washington Post is now doing big business with the Central Intelligence Agency, while readers of the newspaper’s CIA coverage are left in the dark.

The Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, is the founder and CEO of Amazon — which recently landed a $600 million contract with the CIA. But the Post’s articles about the CIA are not disclosing that the newspaper’s sole owner is the main owner of CIA business partner Amazon.

Even for a multi-billionaire like Bezos, a $600 million contract is a big deal. That’s more than twice as much as Bezos paid to buy the Post four months ago.

And there’s likely to be plenty more where that CIA largesse came from. Amazon’s offer wasn’t the low bid, but it won the CIA contract anyway by offering advanced high-tech “cloud” infrastructure.

Bezos personally and publicly touts Amazon Web Services, and it’s evident that Amazon will be seeking more CIA contracts. Last month, Amazon issued a statement saying, “We look forward to a successful relationship with the CIA.”

As Amazon’s majority owner and the Post’s only owner, Bezos stands to gain a lot more if his newspaper does less ruffling and more soothing of CIA feathers.

Amazon has a bad history of currying favor with the U.S. government’s “national security” establishment. The media watch group FAIR pointed out what happened after WikiLeaks published State Department cables: “WikiLeaks was booted from Amazon’s webhosting service AWS. So at the height of public interest in what WikiLeaks was publishing, readers were unable to access the WikiLeaks website.”

How’s that for a commitment to the public’s right to know?

Days ago, my colleagues at RootsAction.org launched a petition that says: “The Washington Post’s coverage of the CIA should include full disclosure that the sole owner of the Post is also the main owner of Amazon — and Amazon is now gaining huge profits directly from the CIA.” More than 15,000 people have signed the petition so far this week, with many posting comments that underscore widespread belief in journalistic principles.

While the Post functions as a powerhouse media outlet in the Nation’s Capital, it’s also a national and global entity — read every day by millions of people who never hold its newsprint edition in their hands. Hundreds of daily papers reprint the Post’s news articles and opinion pieces, while online readership spans the world.

Propaganda largely depends on patterns of omission and repetition. If, in its coverage of the CIA, the Washington Post were willing to fully disclose the financial ties that bind its owner to the CIA, such candor would shed some light on how top-down power actually works in our society.

“The Post is unquestionably the political paper of record in the United States, and how it covers governance sets the agenda for the balance of the news media,” journalism scholar Robert W. McChesney points out. “Citizens need to know about this conflict of interest in the columns of the Post itself.”

In a statement just released by the Institute for Public Accuracy, McChesney added: “If some official enemy of the United States had a comparable situation — say the owner of the dominant newspaper in Caracas was getting $600 million in secretive contracts from the Maduro government — the Post itself would lead the howling chorus impaling that newspaper and that government for making a mockery of a free press. It is time for the Post to take a dose of its own medicine.”

From the Institute, we also contacted other media and intelligence analysts to ask for assessments; their comments are unlikely to ever appear in the Washington Post.

“What emerges now is what, in intelligence parlance, is called an ‘agent of influence’ owning the Post – with a huge financial interest in playing nice with the CIA,” said former CIA official Ray McGovern. “In other words, two main players nourishing the national security state in undisguised collaboration.”

A former reporter for the Washington Post and many other news organizations, John Hanrahan, said: “It’s all so basic. Readers of the Washington Post, which reports frequently on the CIA, are entitled to know — and to be reminded on a regular basis in stories and editorials in the newspaper and online — that the Post’s new owner Jeff Bezos stands to benefit substantially from Amazon’s $600 million contract with the CIA. Even with such disclosure, the public should not feel assured they are getting tough-minded reporting on the CIA. One thing is certain: Post reporters and editors are aware that Bezos, as majority owner of Amazon, has a financial stake in maintaining good relations with the CIA — and this sends a clear message to even the hardest-nosed journalist that making the CIA look bad might not be a good career move.”

The rich and powerful blow hard against the flame of truly independent journalism. If we want the lantern carried high, we’re going to have to do it ourselves.

Wikileaks Releases New Info Dec 9 on Trans-Pacific Partnership [video]

WikiLeaks releases new documents exposing secret Trans-Pacific Partnership

On 13 November 2013 WikiLeaks released the draft text of the crucial Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) Intellectual Property chapter during the lead-up to a TPP chief negotiators’ meeting in Salt Lake City on 19-24 November 2013. Today, 9 December 2013, WikiLeaks has released two more secret TPP documents that show the state of negotiations as the twelve TPP countries began supposedly final negotiations at a trade ministers’ meeting in Singapore this week.

One document describes deep divisions between the United States and other nations, and “great pressure” being exerted by the US negotiators to move other nations to their position; revealing the United States’ covert international push for stronger intellectual property rights. The other document lists, country-by-country, the many areas of disagreement remaining. It covers intellectual property and thirteen other chapters of the draft agreement. This suggests that the TPP negotiations can only be concluded if the Asia-Pacific countries back down on key national interest issues, otherwise the treaty will fail altogether.

“The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a huge, ultra-secret deal among twelve major countries that would give corporations unprecedented power – allowing them to use new global tribunals to sue our governments for passing laws that protect us, but reduce their profits! This applies to everything from labeling GMO foods to protecting internet freedom. Wikileaks has broken the story and opposition is building fast, but the countries are rushing to ink the deal in 48 hours.”
