Surveillance capitalism, robot totalitarianism - Oliver Stone lashes out at Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go’s California-based developer Niantic does collect the name and location of the user – that much is inevitable with this type of game. But it does much more – it can access the contents of your USB storage, your accounts, photographs, network connections, and phone activities, and can even activate your phone, when it is in standby mode.

Niantic also only recently eliminated what it says was an “erroneous request” to force users to give full access to their Google accounts – including all emails, documents, and settings.

Niantic reserves the right to share all the data it collects with third parties, such as advertisers, to enable it to bring in extra revenue.

Director Oliver Stone used a presentation of his upcoming film about Edward Snowden as an opportunity to speak out against the augmented-reality mobile game Pokemon Go, which has been downloaded more than 30 million times in a fortnight.

Blackwater’s Founder Is Under Investigation for Money Laundering, Ties to Chinese Intel, and Brokering Mercenary Services

(Spoiler Libya also features in this story.

ERIK PRINCE, founder of the now-defunct mercenary firm Blackwater and current chairman of Frontier Services Group, is under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and other federal agencies for attempting to broker military services to foreign governments and possible money laundering, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the case.

What began as an investigation into Prince’s attempts to sell defense services in Libya and other countries in Africa has widened to a probe of allegations that Prince received assistance from Chinese intelligence to set up an account for his Libya operations through the Bank of China. The Justice Department, which declined to comment for this article, is also seeking to uncover the precise nature of Prince’s relationship with Chinese intelligence.

Google and Microsoft have made a pact to protect surveillance capitalism

Two bitter rivals have agreed to drop mutual antitrust cases across the globe. Why? To fend off the democratic regulatory oversight.

Microsoft and Google’s new deal to stop fighting each other is an interesting, strategic corporate move. But it is a move accompanied by a much stronger, deeper play: to collect and capitalize data – including data about us, our behaviors, and our interactions.

The challenge for regulators and citizens is complex but essential – and has only just begun.

Britain colluded with the US to wage a secret and illegal aerial bombing campaign to kick-start Iraq war

Michael Smith reveals how the Chilcot Inquiry missed the most damning evidence related to the Iraq war - the secret air war that began in May 2002.
(Smith is the journalist who obtained the top secret Downing Street Memos, which exposed the lies that led to war in Iraq.)

The Chilcot Inquiry failed to uncover a ten-month illegal air war by Britain and the US designed to provoke Saddam Hussein into giving the allies an excuse to go to war in Iraq. Operation Southern Force began on 20 May 2002, six months before the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1441 which Tony Blair's government used to claim the war was legal.

The air war was carried out under cover of the UN-authorised operation under which US and RAF aircraft patrolled the skies over southern Iraq to protect the Shia minority from Saddam's forces.

Lt-Gen Michael Moseley, the US Air Force commander of allied air operations over Iraq, told a conference at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada in July 2003 that during Operation Southern Force allied aircraft dropped more than 600 bombs on 391 targets.

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire
Introduction

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire

Like many others, I've only recently awakened to the assault on democracy and civil liberties the world over.

The Blogs I post are for educational purposes - to inform the public of relevant details regarding the truth of what is happening in governments the world over - and to encourage positive peaceful change. 

An informed public is powerful. But authoritarian rulers do not want the public to be informed. They lie, deceive, mislead and operate in secrecy to hide actions that would alarm or disgust the public and/or are not to the benefit of the public. 

Informing the public of the truth has become a battle between right versus might; truth versus lies and deception; transparency versus secrecy and coverups.

Democracy and civil liberties are under fire from within in many countries - by some of our own elected representatives, as well as some powerful government administrators and those in power in the military-industrial-surveillance complex - who want to consolidate and grow their power base nationally and internationally. 

Mass surveillance, propaganda, censorship and entrenched government secrecy are being used to disempower the public and provide the power elite with unwarranted authority and control over the public. 

Democracy and civil liberties are also under threat from the masterminds behind the financial sector - whose deliberate, calculated wheeling and dealing has likely resulted in the rise and fall of economies. These money monarchs likely also have substantial control over governments the world over because of what they can do that would influence the value of investments or level of loans of various countries. 

The political whipping system is another major threat to the democratic process - that should be seriously curtailed or abolished. 

The consequence of these factors has been evolution of so-called democratic governments run by administrations who dance to the tune of the rich and powerful and ignore the consequences of policies and law changes on the general public. 

We are being more and more ruled by an elite group who would lie to and deceive the public without blinking an eye, turn a blind eye to wrong-doing, and who are lacking in trustworthiness and integrity. Knowledge based on truth brings power. This Blog is about raising awareness of the true consequences of government policies, actions and law changes - and to encourage a focus on policies actions and law respectful of democracy, civil liberties and human rights.

All that is required for evil to take hold and grow is to: close your eyes, block your ears, shut your mouth - and do nothing.

Bragging rights
My eyes have been opened - and I want to help others see.
