Brits under constant surveillance

Computer Active | Mar 28, 2007

The controlled media portrays the Big Brother tyranny as somehow a kind of inevitable evolution as though natural forces were busily at work proliferating wild weeds of database dossiers, GPS tracking devices, microchip IDs, camera systems and biometric scanners. But this leaves out one fact, that it is human beings who are planning and implementing these systems while the rest of us sleep. And which human beings are planning and implementing these vast Orwellian systems of total control you might ask? Well, it is simple: the same ones who staged the attacks of 9/11 and 7/7 using them as pretexts for these very systems, the globalist elites whose plan is to control every function of your body, mind and soul. Why? Because they enjoy it! These sadistic control freaks enjoy making you into total slaves because in reality, they believe they own you and can do whatever they want with you.

Big Brother Britain

Technology is gradually eroding personal privacy as well as putting people’s lives at risk.

This was the stark warning from the Royal Academy of Engineering in its report on privacy and surveillance in the UK.

It paints an alarming picture about how new technologies are gradually eroding personal privacy and the ways they could be abused.

“Advances in technology have the potential to do great good, but they also carry the risk of doing damage if they are introduced without proper care and forethought,” warned the report.

It gave some scenarios about how personal data could be abused. For example although it may sound far fetched, it said biometric data on ID cards and passports could be used by terrorists who could use this information as the trigger to detonate specially crafted bombs against specific nationalities or ethnic groups.

Another that may sound more plausible is misuse of personal data by Governments and other organisations.

“It is not entirely absurd to imagine that supermarkets’ loyalty card data might one day be used by the Government to identify people who ignored advice to eat healthily, or who drank too much, so that they could be given a lower priority for treatment by the NHS,” said the study.

The report echoes closely stark warnings made last year by Information Commissioner, Richard Thomas. In its report, A Surveillance Society, which looked at surveillance in 2006 and projects forward ten years to 2016, he warned we have already unwittingly let our lives be tracked by visible and invisible means.

“Two years ago I warned that we were in danger of sleepwalking into a surveillance society. Today I fear that we are in fact waking up to a surveillance society that is already all around us,” he said.

Scared Kindergarten Girl Handcuffed, Arrested, Charged with Felony

WFTV | Mar 30, 2007

Police arrested a 6-year-old Florida girl and even handcuffed her when she acted out in class. Police officers said Desre’e Watson, a kindergarten student at Avon Elementary School in Highlands County, had a violent run-in with a teacher on Thursday.

“I was scared,” the little girl said.

Police claim the little girl got angry and began kicking and scratching. She even hit a teacher attempting to intervene in the disturbance.

However, the girl’s mother doesn’t believe the story.

“She never fell out. She is very respectful. If I tell her to do anything, she will do it,” Lateshia Wilson said.

School officials said they were forced to call the local police department, who cuffed the child and put her in a police cruiser. The little girl’s mother is angry and said her daughter is usually very respectful.

“I was very upset about that and I feel like they violated my baby’s rights,” Wilson said.

The chief of police said his officers did the right thing.

“When there is an outburst of violence, we have a duty to protect and make that school a safe environment for the students, staff and faculty. That’s why, at this point, the person was arrested regardless what the age,” said Chief Frank Mercurio, Avon Park Police Department.

The kindergartner was booked in the Highland County jail and was charged with a felony and two misdemeanors.

San Antonio man dies after being Tasered

Houston Chronicle | Mar 23, 2007

A 35-year-old man died Friday after San Antonio police used pepper spray and a Taser to subdue him. Officers went to Sergio Galvan’s home on the city’s South Side before dawn after his wife called 911 several times for help, police said. The woman emerged from the home when police arrived and said she needed help with her husband.

Meanwhile, Galvan ran from the house, and the officers pursued, police said. Galvan became combative and attacked the officers, police spokesman Lt. Richard Martinez said, prompting them to use pepper spray and a Taser.

But as Galvan was being handcuffed, the officers noticed he was unresponsive. They began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until emergency medical crews arrived, but Galvan was never revived.

HPV shot now mandatory in New Mexico

NMSU Roundup | Mar 29, 2007

Young girls in New Mexico will soon be required to be vaccinated for the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) to attend public and private schools.

Senate Bill 1174, introduced by Sen. Steve Komadina, states that prior to attending class, parents of girls between the age of nine and 14 will be given information about HPV, a virus that causes cervical cancer.

“We need to [vaccinate] them them before they get the virus,” Komadina said. “I’m an OBGYN, a gynecologist, and the number one thing we see are abnormal pap smears. We need to stop it.”

The bill also states that girls have to submit a written document signed by a physician as evidence that they have received the HPV vaccine. However, a parent or guardian can choose not to have their daughter vaccinated.

“Basically, the health department will be required to send out information about the vaccine,” Komadina said. “If the parent opts to not get the vaccine, they must sign a document saying they didn’t want it.”

Nazi foundation stone restored at Nuremberg

Expatica | Mar 28, 2007

A crane lifted the foundation stone of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s planned stadium back into its original position at a Nuremberg park which aims to expose the Nazis’ megalomaniac dreams.

Torchlit Nazi Party mass rallies held in the 1930s in the park were supposed to be only the beginning, with the stone laid in 1937 for a stadium that was intended to seat 400,000 fanatical Nazis. A pit was dug for the foundations, but the stadium was never built.

After the war, the park was a source of shame to the city. Most of the pit was filled with the rubble of the central business district, which had been flattened by Allied bombing. Part of the pit remained as a polluted pond.

In the past decade, the city has created a museum to explain the Nazis’ evil philosophy and signposted an educational walk into history through the park. The granite stone, weighing several tons, is topped with a glazed sign explaining its significance.

Matthias Strobel, a city museums official, said the stone had been dumped in scrub till 2001, then stored in a municipal building yard.

“This is not a monument,” he said. “It’s just an exhibit among the 23 stops on our educational walkway.”

It was all that remained of the planned stadium, which the Nazis intended to seat 10 times as many people as big football stadiums. Next to it is a 1,500-metre long concrete apron used by the Nazis for military parades and now used as a car park.

Richardson: ‘Nuclear 9-11’ Is Possible

Breitbart.com | Mar 28, 2007

Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson said the United States needs to do more to prevent a “nuclear 9-11,” a threat that he argues has been neglected because the Bush administration has been consumed with Iraq.

The New Mexico governor said the United States must lead an effort to secure nuclear materials in Russia and dangerous areas of the world so they can’t get into terrorists’ hands. “If al-Qaida obtained nuclear weapons, they would not hesitate to use them with the same ruthlessness that allowed them to fly airplanes filled with people into buildings,” he said in a speech to the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University.

“It took a Manhattan project to create the bomb,” Richardson said. “We need a new Manhattan project to stop the bomb—a comprehensive program to secure all nuclear weapons and all weapons-usable material, worldwide.”

Asked why he doesn’t support a nuclear-free world like former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and other Cold War leaders have promoted, Richardson replied, “I’m a pragmatist.”

“I believe what the world needs to do is nuclear arms reductions,” Richardson said. He recalled that it didn’t work when President Reagan and Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev agreed in 1986 to renounce all nuclear weapons “for about 10 minutes.”

Richardson worked on securing Russian nuclear weapons when he was energy secretary in the Clinton administration. But he accused the Bush administration of underfunding their programs.

“Meanwhile, we are spending $10 billion a month on Iraq,” he said. “Of the many ways in which the Iraq war has distracted us from our real national security needs, this is the most dangerous.”

In the question-and-answer period after his speech, Richardson laid out the plans for his first days in the White House. The first day, he would get out of Iraq. The second, he would announce a plan to drastically cut U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

On the third day, the issue would be global warming. Richardson gave former Vice President Al Gore credit for spreading knowledge about the issue through his Oscar-winning film. But he wasn’t encouraging Gore to enter the 2008 race.

“I like Al Gore, he looks very healthy and prosperous,” Richardson said with a laugh. “He should stay where he is.”

Devil worship links to mystery man

The Guardian | Mar 30, 2007

Police in northern Italy are wrestling with a mystery that brings together a man with memory loss, evidence of devil worship and a blood-drenched flat.

One evening a young man wandered into a police station at Vercelli, between Turin and Milan. He said he had no idea who he was, or why he was there. Three days earlier, on March 16, the owner of a bedsit outside Bergamo, more than 70 miles away, had broken into her flat. The tenant had not paid his rent and she wanted to know if he was still there.

She found signs everywhere that it had been used for a Satanic rite. There were upturned crosses, and the place was smothered with symbols written in blood. Forensic experts estimated that as much as three litres had been splashed around.

Only later was it established that all of it belonged to the confused man. He has since been identified as a 22-year-old called Daniele, who, until recently, worked in a factory. His family said his only hobby was UFOs. They told police that, last September, he had suddenly left his job and spent his savings, though his relations with his parents, who he now says he cannot recognise, continued to seem normal.

According to a report in the daily Corriere della Sera, doctors have found he has punctures on his body. But there is no evidence that Daniele had taken drugs. Among the puzzles are how a man who had lost almost three litres of blood could have made his way 70 miles across country – and what happened to him in the three days that he was missing. Prosecutors are treating it as case of attempted murder.

Alzheimer’s sufferers dying in drug ‘scandal’

The Guardian | Mar 30, 2007

· Sedatives blamed for thousands of deaths

A class of drugs widely prescribed for people suffering from dementia is leading to the premature deaths of thousands of patients every year, according to research published today. Campaigners branded the continued use of the sedatives, called neuroleptics, a national scandal after a five-year study revealed that people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are twice as likely to die if they are prescribed them.

Neuroleptics are widely prescribed to help control symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia including agitation, hallucinations and erratic behaviour, despite only being licensed for use in people suffering from schizophrenia. The research suggests they are of little benefit to patients with milder symptoms, greatly increase their risk of dying prematurely, and that 45% of Alzheimer’s patients in care homes are prescribed a neuroleptic drug.

A group of 165 Alzheimer’s patients were randomly assigned to take one of three types of neuroleptic drugs, or a placebo. After two years 45% of those who took the real drugs had died compared with 22% who were given the placebo.

The King’s College London researchers who undertook the project, funded by the Alzheimer’s Research Trust, found that after three years 65% of those on the drugs had died compared with 38% of those on placebos. After 42 months 75% of those on the drugs had died compared with 60% on the placebo. On average patients who were on the drugs died six months earlier.

Clive Ballard, professor of age-related disorders at King’s and the lead researcher, said that not only were people more likely to die but they also suffered severe side-effects including stroke, chest infections and falls.

“If this was a massive increase in mortality in children there would be an outcry. Older people aren’t seen as a priority. These sedatives are being used because the services can’t cope with people who are in a distressed state. There are ways to avoid them but it would involve training of staff, which is costly.”

In 2004 the medicines watchdog issued a warning that two types of neuroleptics, olanzapine and risperidone, should not be given to Alzheimer’s patients because of an increased risk of stroke and death.

Despite this, in 2005 the Alzheimer’s Society presented evidence that 100,000 people suffering from dementia were being prescribed a neuroleptic drug.

Bonaduce Says O’Donnell Should Be Hung On MSNBC

You Tube | March 30, 2007

Danny Bonaduce is now the official MSNBC expert on 9/11. I believe this is the third or forth time this psychotic has been released from his straightjacket, probably injected with a good dose of thorazine to keep him relatively lucid and sedate, to make pronouncements in regard to 9/11. It’s getting pretty bad at MSNBC when they have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to use a mentally deranged drugged out maniac to attack 9/11 truthers with death threats, but here you go.  As you can see, the truth movement is pushing these treasonous media whores, who give aid and comfort to our globalist enemies, to extremes of desperation, so this is actually a good sign.

Joe Scarborough Attacks Rosie O’Donnell, Barbara Walters & ABC For debating a serious issue. Scarborough brings in the political expert Danny Bonaduce, who says that O’Donnell should be ‘strung up for treason’ and ‘aiding and abetting the enemy’. He then goes on to seriously defend that point.

Mind how you walk. It could be a crime

Telegraph | Mar 26, 2007

Later today, the Commons home affairs select committee will announce it is to conduct an inquiry into the growth of surveillance in Britain. It is tempting to say this is not before time, but it is probably too late if the aim is to have any influence over policy.

We are already a “surveillance society”. We are, for the time being, fortunate that the full potential for its abuse is constrained by the pluralist democracy in which we live. However, we do not have to look back very far in history to imagine the use to which such snooping could be put.

advertisementIn the media, whenever we wish to describe the burgeoning intrusiveness of the past decade, we are inevitably drawn to one of our greatest writers, George Orwell – although even he could not have envisaged that, in addition to the ubiquitous cameras, it would be possible to track everyone from cradle to grave through computer-chip technology or to build up a database of the population’s DNA. But he would have understood why it is being done.

In 1984, it is about control. The state tells its people that the cameras are there for their benefit and to prevent crime, but the crime they are preventing is insurrection. Everyone is watched to ensure they conform.

Winston Smith can never get away from the surveillance. At one point, he realises how dangerous it is even to allow his thoughts to wander in public or when facing the telescreen. Facial expressions were watched closely and could have dire consequences.

Giving a disbelieving look when a state policy or a military victory was announced was considered a “facecrime”. There would have been a lot of facecriminals around on Budget day last week.

OK, so we have not gone that far. But the point is that we could. In the wrong hands, technology that appears benign can be used to shackle. Within the lifetimes of millions alive today, there were totalitarian regimes that would have made the most appalling use of such opportunities.

I have no doubt that our political masters believe the rapid expansion of CCTV cameras, for instance, is good for us. Indeed, that would be the view of most people, who seem happy with the cameras.

It stands to reason that if you have a camera trained on a shopping centre, a car park, a hotel lobby or a bus stop, we must be safer.

Well, actually, it does not follow at all. One problem is that cameras take the place of other forms of crime prevention, such as more police or better street lighting.

You might feel safer and the mugger may well think twice before striking if he thinks a CCTV camera is about. But they can engender complacency; and if cameras are so effective in preventing crime, why have the numbers of town-centre assaults and robberies shot up even as CCTV has mushroomed?

The iconic CCTV images we all remember are of crimes happening, or about to happen, not of them being prevented: the grainy image of Jamie Bulger being led away by two boys to his death; Jill Dando shopping before she was murdered on her doorstep; the four July 7 bombers boarding a train at Luton en route to London.

Perhaps CCTV will lead police in Jamaica to the killer of Bob Woolmer. But even as a detection tool, CCTV has been found wanting. A review carried out by Home Office experts and police chiefs has found that too many images are hard to access.

The next generation of CCTV will be far more sophisticated than the analogue video cameras we have now. The new ones will be smart digital technologies able to “decide” if a crime is about to happen and focus in on suspicious activity rather than on everything, making it easier to go back over the images.

These intelligent cameras can tell if someone is spraying graffiti on a wall because they have “learnt” what normal behaviour should be within their field of vision.

Similarly, a camera trained on a car park will be activated only if it detects someone going from car to car. An airport camera can be programmed to know what a departure hall should look like, with thousands of separate movements. A single suitcase left for any length of time would trigger an alarm.

This technology was developed for use in hotels to alert staff to a breakfast tray left outside a room. Soon, it will be coming to a street near you.

Why not go the whole hog and have microphones attached to cameras or embedded in street lights? The Dutch have pioneered a system that recognises aggressive sounds, without actually eavesdropping on conversations (perish the thought).

My favourite is automatic gait recognition. This identifies people by the way they walk and the Government has asked Ministry of Defence scientists to develop it for widespread use.

Cameras are programmed to pick up on a particular gait, thereby making it impossible for a suspect to escape by covering his face. Even Orwell did not come up with “gaitcrime”.

It is right that the home affairs select committee should look at this, although it is hard to see what it can do about it. We already have close to five million CCTV cameras, which is one fifth of the world’s total.

The average Londoner might be monitored by 300 CCTV cameras a day. They are not going to be switched off, merely made more sophisticated.

But the committee can do one thing and that is alert the country to the potential dangers of putting all this surveillance together – the CCTV, DNA, ID card, radio-frequency identification, citizens’ database – and linking it up with the rest of the information held on us.

Whatever can be said for the value of any one of these, it is the combination that makes me feel uneasy. I just hope it doesn’t show on my face.
