(Natural News)
Former employees of Google and Facebook are campaigning to warn users about the addictive dangers posed by social media networks like Google and Facebook, according to a Daily Mail Online report.

Tristan Harris, who was a former in-house ethicist at Google, is leading the new group called the Center for Humane Technology which campaigns to raise awareness about the negative effects of smartphones and social media, especially to children and younger users. The group launched an awareness campaign called “The Truth About Tech.”

Together with the nonprofit media watchdog organization Common Sense Media, the group plans to lobby the U.S. government over tech addiction. Moreover, it is tackling an advertising campaign directed to 55,000 public schools in the U.S. to warn parents, students, and teachers over its concerns, which include the mental health effects of social media overuse, such as depression, stress, anxiety, self-image, and self-worth. The group also aims to address more broader problems that technology brings, such as its strong influence in relationships and people’s political beliefs.

Another former high profile figure of a technology company has expressed concerns over its products in December. Chamath Palihapitiya, a former executive of Facebook, also took a stand against the social media company that he helped to build. He said that Facebook is “ripping society.” Palihapitiya joined the company in 2007 and became its Vice President for user growth. He feels guilty for Facebook’s influence and manipulation to its users. Moreover, he advised users to pause from using social media.

“We were on the inside. We know what the companies measure. We know how they talk, and we know how the engineering works,” Harris told the New York Times, as cited by Daily Mail Online. “The largest supercomputers in the world are inside of two companies — Google and Facebook — and where are we pointing them? We’re pointing them at people’s brains, at children.”

Even Facebook itself has acknowledged that the site may negatively affect democracy through the spread of fake news. In fact, its executives said in a series of blog posts on January that it was “far too slow” in determining negative effects that occurred during the 2016 U.S. election. They cited Russian interference, “toxic discourse,” and the “dangerous consequences” of misinformation.

The hazards of social media

Social media has changed the way people communicate and interact with one another. However, it also has consequences that users encounter. Here are some of the dangers of social media use.

  • Mental health issues – Instagram is the most damaging social media platform on mental health, based on a survey of 1,500 teenagers and young adults by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Young Health Movement (YHM) in the U.K. It was found to cause extreme anxiety and depression.
  • Compromised privacy – Whenever you go online, you compromise your privacy by disclosing your personal information.
  • Risks for the young and credulous – Young people use social media now more than ever in the past. In fact, approximately 91 percent of individuals aged 16 to 24 use the internet for social networking. Most of them share their personal information without second thoughts or knowing what harm it may bring them.

Watch: Former British Diplomat Believes Anarchism Is Our Only Alternative To A Corrupt Government



Next Story

“I was once a British diplomat, now I’m an anarchist.” – Carne Ross

This is a pretty powerful statement, and chances are that you think this man has completely lost it. The term anarchy has somehow been confused with complete and utter chaos, with no order, no peace, no structure and essentially destruction. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In short, anarchy means self-governance. This is to rely on ourselves and our own internal guiding systems as to what works, what doesn’t and essentially let our own moral compass determine what is right and what is wrong. Believe it or not, inherently, most of us know.

Anarchism is defined as as, “A doctrine urging the abolition of government or governmental restraint as the indispensable condition for full social and political liberty.”

Many of us believe that without the government, we would be completely lost, inept and unable to take care of ourselves, but, those who consider themselves anarchists believe the opposite. They feel that the government is merely a system of control that only benefits those at the top and keeps the rest of us complacent worker bees keeping this system alive. It’s no wonder such a bad name has been given to anarchy and it’s movement, it threatens our current system and more specifically, those at the top of the pyramid.

Recently, former British diplomat, Carne Ross was featured on BBC Newsnight to share his thoughts on why anarchy is the answer to our current political problems. Check it out!

 

As Ross states in the video, anarchism is a simple idea based off the principles that no one should have power over another and people should govern themselves. There are a few cultures around the world where the concepts of anarchism are being implemented and proven to be successful.

Shouldn’t We Have A Say?

I mean, think about it. We essentially give up all of our own personal thoughts, opinions, desires, ideas to the hands of a few powerful people who call themselves government. We have been conditioned to believe that we actually have a say because we are allowed to vote for our “leaders.” Unfortunately, these people are more often than not influenced heavily by corporations and therefore do not have our best interests in mind. Essentially, because of lobbying the large corporations are actually the ones calling the shots, this is very common in the United States of America, but it also happening in many other countries across the globe.

One fine example is of the wars being fought… if the public had a say in these matters, do you really feel that these wars would continue for as long as they have? Likely not, because the reasons for entering them in the first place, which is more often than not to do with oil, would not be of concern, because again it would not be the corporations calling the shots, but the citizens of the earth who genuinely care for the well-being of humanity. Believe it or not, people actually want to help each other and in instances where the government has collapsed, we have seen the people coming together as one to cooperate and face the matters at hand.

The concept of anarchism goes really deep, and realistically there is a lot more to it than this. But for now, to begin we can take the advice given by Ross and start to have a direct say in the decisions that are impacting our lives on a daily basis.

Former military meteorologist admits military aircraft spray aluminum into the atmosphere


Image: Former military meteorologist admits military aircraft spray aluminum into the atmosphere

(Natural News)
It’s getting harder to convince people that chemtrails are merely a conspiracy theory when even meteorologists are discussing geoengineering on TV while giving their forecasts.

Geoengineering entails spraying materials like aluminum, barium, strontium and plastics into the atmosphere on the pretense of protecting the planet from global warming. A few years ago, if you questioned the white lines streaking across the sky and theorized they were chemicals, you would be mocked; now, you are expected to believe that injecting aerosols into the atmosphere can save the planet.

Even meteorologists are openly admitting that this takes place, with one saying in a West Coast weather report on a station only identified as News 10 that can be viewed on YouTube:

Then you see these bands of very distinct cloud cover moving into the region. That is not rain, that is not snow. Believe it or not, military aircraft flying through the region was dropping chaff – small bits of aluminum. Sometimes it’s made of plastic or even metallicized paper products, but it’s used as an anti-radar issue and obviously they’re practicing.

He added: “Now they won’t confirm that, but I was in the Marine Corps for many years and I’ll tell you right now, that’s what it is.”

In another video from Florida, a meteorologist points to a large area of blue on the map and says: “That’s what we call military chaff, and the military releases some things in the atmosphere… I know.”

Yet another video shows a Southern California meteorologist saying that chaff has been sprayed over the area and is interfering with their satellite data.

What is floating around in the air we breathe?

What is most striking is how the meteorologists talk about it so casually, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. High exposure to aluminum can cause problems in the digestive system, bones, kidneys and muscles, and it has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and other brain-related problems – hardly the sort of thing you want floating around in the air that you breathe on a daily basis.

Solar geoengineering could create more problems than it solves

Little by little, we are being encouraged to believe that this is something that is actually good for us, and perhaps these nonchalant mentions of it are meant to allay people’s fears about geoengineering.

However, spraying sulfur dioxide into our atmosphere it is not the panacea for the planet’s problems that some claim it to be, as you might expect. A panel of the National Academy of Sciences reported last week that solar geoengineering simply cannot be considered a substitute for reducing greenhouse gas emissions because it doesn’t address the root causes of climate disruption and won’t counteract acidification of the oceans.

Moreover, once it starts, it will have to continue for centuries or it could have serious repercussions for life on our planet and possibly even collapse the Amazon rainforest and drive some species toward extinction. Moreover, an international body would have to oversee it to make sure it is adhered to because abruptly stopping it would be devastating to life as we know it.

DOJ & FBI Under “Criminal Investigation” Says Former Federal Prosecutor

Joe DiGenova Federal Prosecutor

A former Federal prosecutor claims that the Democratic response to the House Intel Committee’s GOP-authored “FISA memo” was blocked on the recommendation of the FBI and DOJ because the agencies are conducting internal investigations into politically motivated malfeasance by specific individuals which the Schiff memo could compromise if released without redactions.

Joe DiGenova, a former Special Counsel who went after both the Teamsters and former NY Governer Elliot Spitzer, made the claim on a Monday interview with radio station WMAL.

DiGenova: “We’re going to see the [Democrat memo]. It will be heavily edited by the FBI and the Department of Justice and the CIA.The most important part of this story is that on Friday, February the 9th, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray wrote a letter to the White House counsel Don McGahn that they could not agree to the publication of the Schiff memo because it contained national security and law enforcement concerns.

It was actually the FBI and the Department of Justice says no [to releasing the memo]. The most important part of that letter is when it says… law enforcement concerns. What does that mean? It means, that there is a criminal investigation underway and release of some of the information in the memo by Mr. Schiff will affect that criminal investigation.

I wonder who they are investigating? And the answer is pretty clear. They are investigating the people at the FBI and the DOJ who provided false information to the FISA court over a number of years, including, involving Carter Page.

As an aside, DiGenova’s wife is attorney and former Reagan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing – who is representing former FBI mole William D. Campbell surrounding his Congressional testimony regarding bribes from Russian uranium executives routed to the Clinton Global Iniative.

Last month we reported that DiGenova sat down with the Daily Caller, where he asserted that the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy” was unraveling.

The FBI used to spy on Russians. This time they spied on us. what this story is about – a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton from a clear violation of the law with regard to the way she handled classified information with her classified server. 

Absolutely a crime, absolutely a felony. It’s about finding out why – as the Inspector General is doing at the department of justice – why Comey and the senior DOJ officials conducted a fake criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.

Followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrant. That’s not an investigation, that’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce. DC

DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants.

Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.” –Daily Caller

During the interview, DiGenova held referenced what was until then a previously unreported and heavily redacted 99-page FISA court opinion from April, 2017, which “describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff.”

Former Defense Minister: Illuminati Is Real & Secretly Running World

Former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer said a secretive global elite is running the world and is determined to introduce a One World government.

“You have a got secret cabal that’s actually running the world and they’ve managed to keep this technology under wraps until they can cash in the trillions of oil assets that they’ve got,” he said at an Alien Expo conference last June that recently surfaced on social media.

“The preferred ideal was an inclusive one-world economy dominated by the United States. It was at this stage that there was a virtual merger of the Council [on Foreign Relations] and the U.S. State Department, which in late 1941 created a special committee to consider ‘positive planning’: the advisory committee on positive foreign policy.”

“These were the seeds of a New World Order, and they have been working on it ever since,” he added.

The American people need to wake up and rally together to demand the establishment level with them and come clean about suppressed technology and their goal of establishing a New World Order at humanity’s expense, Hellyer said.

“And it’s not going to change until hundreds of thousands of people band together and say look ‘you’ve got to come clean, tell us what is going on, and change your priorities to save the world for further generations instead of blowing it on wars.’”

This is why the globalists hate President Trump: he represents an existential threat to their designs on a New World Order, according to The Economist.

“The rules-based international order that emerged from the wreckage of the second world war was a huge improvement on any preceding era,” states the article.

“Yet liberal internationalism is now under attack from many sides. Donald Trump’s America First doctrine explicitly repudiates it.”

How To Spot A Lie In 5 Seconds, Former CIA Officer Teaches You How



Next Story

Intuition. This is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about how we can effectively spot lies. Some of us call it a gut feeling, while others call it straight up intuition.

Humans, like a lie detector test, have a field of energy that stems from the heart. It is a magnetic field that radiates several metres off of a person and it can be detected by other people’s hearts and minds. This magnetic field contains information, and the heart is incredibly intelligent.

The work The HeartMath Institute is doing has made that evidently clear through their scientific research of the heart, it’s magnetic field and the inherent intelligence that exists in each persons heart.

The way I have always described it is, spotting a lie is a feeling. And I know in some way we have all felt this before. We may not have attributed it to our hearts or our heart’s intelligence, perhaps at times it was physical cues that gave it away, but I’m certain that each of us have known a lie was being told to them simply based off a feeling.

This is your intuition. Like it or not, it exists and we all have it. Truthfully, we can develop that intuition to assist us a great deal in life.

CIA Officer Reveals How To Spot A Lie

Former CIA officer Susan Carnicero — believes that humans lie about 10 times per day on average. Susan has spent more than 20 years interrogating, interviewing and polygraphing suspects, over the span of her career, and thus has learned a great deal on how to spot a liar. What she will teach goes back to the mental and analytical side of spotting a liar, but nonetheless this can be an important tool. She tells all in the video below.

Before jumping into this however, note that spotting a liar isn’t an exact science. Just because you see a friend doing something you will learn about below, may not mean they’re lying.

When it comes down to it, there are a wide range of lies. Some lies are meant to spare someone’s feelings or avoid hurting them, while others are more of an aggressive lie to protect oneself or deceive another for personal benefit. So of course, there are times when it is much more important to be able to spot a lie than others.

When it comes to intuition, I tend to feel that the heart is so intelligent that if it is more of a playful lie to say surprise you for a party or something of that nature, you might be less aware of what is going on than when your intuition is really trying to get you to see something important. But this is truly my own experience, not a science.

Nonverbal Signs Of Deceit

Grooming gestures – This one is quite common. If a person is straightening a tie or piece of clothing, fixing hair, adjusting or fiddling with something else on their body like a watch or glasses, this can be a subconscious way people are trying to hide their anxiety about a question.

Verbal/nonverbal disconnect – Have you ever seen someone nod their head yes but say no when being asked a question? Then fumble over their words trying to correct it? This can be a sign of a deceptive behaviour as well.

Behavioural pause – Let’s say you asked a person something vague like what they might have been doing 5 years ago in September. The person may pause, think for a moment and try to figure it out as it’s not an easy thing to remember. However, if you had said, “did you murder someone 5 years ago in September?” And a pause occurred, that might indicate a sign of deceit as it should be a very easy question to answer.

Hand-to-face movements – If you notice a person raise their hand to their mouth, or face, lick their lips, pull on their ear or adjust their hair, this can be another sign of deceptive behaviour.

In the video below, Susan reveals more than just nonverbal signs, she also discusses further vocal cues that can tell a lot about what a persons intentions are.

Former FBI Agent: Bureau’s top brass climb ladder by Ideology, Not Merit

J Edger  Hoover FBI Building

    

“Go in and think like a liberal” was the advice two FBI agents gave Jonathan Gilliam prior to his taking an FBI entrance exam. Gilliam shared his anecdote during a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with co-hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Gilliam, a retired Navy SEAL and former FBI special agent, spoke of left-wing political corruption across the federal government, specifically identifying the CIA and FBI.

Gilliam recalled that two FBI agents advised him to “think like a liberal” during his FBI entrance exam. “I was told by two FBI agents that did not know each other – I was told, ‘Do not go in and take that test as though you are thinking like a SEAL.’ In other words, ‘If this happened, this is the way it should be done because this is the way a team works, and this is the way an investigation should be carried out.’ They said, ‘Don’t do that, you’ll fail. Go in and think like a liberal.’ And that’s what I did, and I passed.”

The FBI’s entrance exam illustrated how leftists use ideological filtering tools preferencing ideological fellow travelers, said Gilliam.

“These tests are written to recruit a certain type of person,” said Gilliam. “So what you end up having when you do that is, you’re gonna have – the CIA has the same problem, where it’s not that they have individuals bringing a skill set to the table; it’s that they’re bringing an ideology to the table that those that wrote the test want them to have.”

“The people who are like-minded, the people that get along are going to be the ones that stay there,” added Gilliam. “They’re not going to recruit people who don’t do what they do, who don’t think like they do.”

The “deep state” network of leftists, said Gilliam, extends across various federal bureaucracies. He advised President Donald Trump to cleanse federal bureaucracies of politically corrupt leftists.

“If you want to see the deep state, this is what you’re looking at,” said Gilliam. “It’s not just the FBI. It’s not just the DOJ. It’s also the State Department. It’s the IRS. It’s the DOD. It’s the VA. You want to look across the board and look and all of these.”

“I don’t think that what we’re seeing in the FBI is just about the FBI,” said Gilliam. “What we’re seeing … is that this is a slice of the bigger picture. Right now, the president has the greatest time that he’s probably going to have in his presidency to pull back and unleash either another special counsel or a team of investigators to go in and clean up these upper echelons [of federal bureaucracies].”

“You can call them deep state. You can call them globalists. I often call them communists,” said Gilliam of left-wing federal bureaucrat careerists.

Both the FBI and CIA reward left-wing ideological alignment over meritorious service in determining internal promotions, said Gilliam.

“I’ve worked in four different federal agencies, and in every single one, you have your workers, and then, you have your people that climb the ladder to get to the top,” said Gilliam. “I think that process should be eliminated. I think you should work your way to the top, not that you should climb your way to the top. … It’s not the people who are the best; it’s the people who check the boxes and identify with the ideology of the people at the top.”

Ideological alignment allows otherwise disconnected people across federal bureaucracies to cooperate absent conspiracy, said Gilliam, using terrorist networks as an illustration of this phenomenon.

“You know how terrorist cells work. They have a financial group that raises money, you have planners, you have people who build the bombs, and you have people that carry the operation out,” said Gilliam. “They may never meet those people, but they belong to the same ideology.”

“These behaviors are not something that is just simply at the FBI,” concluded Gilliam. This is a problem across the board.”

RT LAUNCHES NEW SHOW WITH FORMER ECUADOREAN PRESIDENT RAFAEL CORREA

MOSCOW, 8 FEBRUARY 2018RT en Español is launching a new weekly political talk series called ‘A Conversation with Correa’ (‘Conversando con Correa’), hosted by former Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa (2007-2017).

Correa will discuss important social and political issues of the day with a variety of public figures and world leaders.

“Life gave me the privilege to learn what the theory and the crude reality are all about, and thus to be able to tell the vain from the profound, the wise from the foolish, the changing from the immutable. And that is precisely what we will be discussing with our distinguished guests,” said Correa.

“For the first time, our channel will have a show hosted by a former president. We are particularly proud that he was the president of a country that supported my dear friend and a hero to an entire generation, Julian Assange, when Assange got caught up in the West’s ‘freedom of expression’ apparatus,” said Margarita Simonyan, RT’s editor-in-chief, referring to the launch of the new series.

Rafael Correa granted numerous interviews to RT during his tenure as President of Ecuador. He was also profiled on RT’s program ‘One Day With…’ (‘Un Dia Con’) in 2014, offering RT viewers a sneak peek of the Ecuadorean president’s everyday life.

Rafael Correa was the 43rd president of Ecuador (2007-2017). He holds a PhD in Economics and is the founder of PAIS Alliance, a political movement based on 21st century socialist ideology. Correa has written numerous scientific articles and books on the economic problems facing the world today.

The show will premiere on RT en Español on March 1, with English-language highlights available on RT International and RT.com.
