General Motors And General Electric Were Both Victimized By The Same Ponzi Scheme, And They Are Both Telling Us The U.S. Economy Is In HUGE Trouble

For years, big corporations have been borrowing massive amounts of money to fund reckless stock buybacks, and that has helped to fuel an amazing bull market run. -- But now the game is imploding, and the unraveling of this massive Ponzi scheme is not going to be pretty.

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS EQUIPPED WITH THERMAL IMAGING ALLOW POLICE TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE BY THEIR GENDER, BODY SIZE AND COLOR OF THEIR SKIN

"Transforming Video into Actionable Intelligence" allows law enforcement and retailers to secretly identify people by their gender, body size, color, direction, speed and more.

BriefCam's Video Synopsis version V allows police and retail stores to use surveillance cameras to identify individuals and cars in real-time.

"BriefCam is the industry’s leading provider of Video Synopsis® solutions for rapid video review and search, real-time alerting and quantitative video insights. By transforming raw video into actionable intelligence."

What is really disturbing about the video, is no one knows where it is being used and by whom. Brief Cam's limited disclosures, claim it is being used by top law enforcement agencies and governments but that's it.

BriefCam admits that the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Disney, the Javits Convention Center and Smart City initiatives in Boston and Beverly Hills are using Video Synopsis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last bit concerns me greatly; apparently, as the "price" for personal security, is a massive, and permanent, invasion of a US's citizen's alleged "right to privacy."

General Motors is laying off thousands & closing two plants

According to GM, tariffs on imported steel—which were imposed by the Trump Administration earlier this year—have cost the company $1 billion.

General Motors has made an announcement that is going to bring considerable pain in the Rust Belt. The automotive giant will be slashing 14,700 jobs, many of them in Michigan and Ohio—and a plant closing is expected in Ontario, Canada as well.

This is the biggest restructuring at GM in a decade, with 15% of its workforce being eliminated in North America.>>>

BEX ALERT - Reggie Bush pushes disinformation about vaccines in Twitter 'conversation'

Now enjoying retirement following an 11-year NFL career, Reggie Bush took to Twitter on Sunday with a question he wanted his 2.88 million followers to answer: Do they believe this extremely anti-vaccine video he just found?

Claiming that he had been reading and watching videos on vaccinations and their “dangers,” the 33-year-old linked to a video of a retired nurse castigating a CDC panel over their vaccine regulations and pushing the widely debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. The video has since been deleted for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.

Apple is CUTTING the price of its 'budget' iPhone XR with the 'world's most advanced LCD display': Firm forced to offer subsidies to Japanese operators due to underwhelming sales

Apple is cutting the price of its latest iPhone in Japan to boost sales after an underwhelming launch.

The Silicon Valley firm is offering subsidies to mobile network operators in Japan to help shift its $749 (£749) iPhone XR, which was released less than a month ago.

Operators will offer price cuts as early as next week, a decision which indicates Apple's long-term dominance in the smartphone market may be wavering.

It is not known whether the firm will offer the discount in other regions.

Apple restarts iPhone X production following weak iPhone XS and XS Max sales, report says

This surprising development comes just days after Apple reportedly cut production orders for all three 2018 iPhone models (i.e. the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR).

The decision to restart iPhone X production is due in part to an agreement Apple made with Samsung to purchase a certain amount of OLED display panels, according to the WSJ.

Apple is also reportedly using the iPhone X to make up for lost sales of the iPhone XS and XS Max. The report claims that the older iPhone model is cheaper to produce because the components and manufacturing equipment are now older and therefore cheaper.

Nonetheless, the decision is a little strange because, in January, Apple cut production of the iPhone X in half from 40 million to only 20 million units.

George Soros Sold Huge Amounts Of Facebook And Netflix Just Before Tech Stocks Crashed

George Soros avoided a loss of more than 17 million dollars by dumping shares of Facebook, Netflix and Goldman Sachs just before the big crash started happening. In other words, he made out like a bandit by selling at the peak of the market. Is he smarter than all the rest of us, did he have some inside information, or was he simply lucky? In recent months, tech stocks have lost approximately a trillion dollars in value, and many investors have been absolutely devastated. But not George Soros. According to the most recent filing with the SEC, Soros Fund Management was able to dump shares in Facebook and Netflix just in time…

Vegas Man Rushed To ER After Flu Shot, ‘I Can’t Feel My Legs’

A Las Vegas man was sent to the ICU following receiving a flu shot. Monique Morgan says her husband, Shane, was given a flu shot on November 2nd. He began showing symptoms of the flu shortly after the shot.
“36 hours afterward, he developed flu-like symptoms,” said Morgan. Flu symptoms soon turned to paralysis.

“He’s like I can’t feel my legs… I need you to take me to the emergency room,” said Morgan. Doctors treating Shane believe it could be a “rare disease” called Guillain-Barré syndrome that is often linked to the flu shot.

YOUR MEDICAL DEVICES ARE NOT KEEPING YOUR HEALTH DATA TO THEMSELVES — PROPUBLICA

CPAP units, heart monitors, blood glucose meters and lifestyle apps generate information that can be used in ways patients don’t necessarily expect. It can be sold for advertising or even shared with insurers, who may use it to deny reimbursement.

Medical devices are gathering more and more data from their users, whether it’s their heart rates, sleep patterns or the number of steps taken in a day. Insurers and medical device makers say such data can be used to vastly improve health care.

But the data that’s generated can also be used in ways that patients don’t necessarily expect. It can be packaged and sold for advertising. It can anonymized and used by customer support and information technology companies. Or it can be shared with health insurers, who may use it to deny reimbursement. Privacy experts warn that data gathered by insurers could also be used to rate individuals’ health care costs and potentially raise their premiums.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Expect every and any data any which these devices process, to be sent, sold, or analyzed,in ways which never even occurred to you, as the end user.

CDC Warning: Do Not Eat Any Romaine Lettuce

Two days before families across America sit down for big Thanksgiving meals, the CDC is warning people not to eat romaine lettuce of any kind, due to an outbreak of E. coli infections.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 32 people have become ill from a strain of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli in 11 states from Oct. 8 through Oct. 31. Thirteen of those people were hospitalized, including one who suffered kidney failure. In addition, at least 18 people in Canada have been infected with E. coli in Ontario and Quebec.

All of those cases have been linked to romaine lettuce, and the CDC said consumers should not eat any romaine lettuce of any kind, as “no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.”

CDC launches task force for polio-like disease as MORE cases emerge: Now 109 kids are confirmed sick and 167 are under investigation as officials scramble to identify the cause

Another 16 children have contracted the rare polio-like disease, acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) - bringing the total number of confirmed cases this year to 109 across 29 states, the CDC has revealed.

Another 167 children are showing tell-tale symptoms of the mysterious illness which has emerged as a major public health threat every other year since 2014.

It seems to be caused by a combination of viruses but this year, the third time AFM has surged, the CDC is still struggling to identify exactly how and why it takes hold.

As such, the agency today formed a task force designed to investigate the driving forces and possible treatments of AFM, and to establish what post-AFM life looks like for sufferers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there is a problem with the polio vaccine, the CDC will make certain we never hear about it!

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness…

The genetically engineered trait, which prevents the potato’s natural discoloration was achieved by silencing the potato’s melanin gene...

Amazon Echo Home Recordings At Center of Murder Trial As Judge Orders Data Release

By Nicholas West

A new type of court case has been slowly but steadily emerging within the American legal system: alleged crimes being detected from data supplied by smart devices. The very nature of the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution appears to be at stake.

A New Hampshire judge appears ready to demand that Amazon turn over recordings from the home where two women were allegedly stabbed to death by Timothy Verrill. Verrill has pleaded not guilty, and this appears to be the first case in the state of New Hampshire where a judge is willing to summon data from a smart device – an Amazon Echo speaker – as evidence that could be central to a trial. The implications of this have also been stated by legal experts...

Kennedy Jr. to take on the U.S. government by filing suit against the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for vaccine safety violations — and they won. This is big news for all concerned with the topic of vaccine safety. It turns out the federal agency has been neglecting their vaccine safety obligations for over 30 years. The lawsuit brought by RFK Jr. is evidence that “vaccine safety” as we know it is nothing more than a sham.

Blindingly expensive: Replacing a headlight bulb on some of Britain's best-selling small cars can now cost almost £1,000

A common blown headlight bulb could cost drivers hundreds of pounds to replace on some of Britain's most popular small cars, new research by What Car? has revealed.

It said the complexity of the latest high-powered bulbs means owners of some of the most affordable new cars on the market cannot simply replace them individually and are forced to purchase entire headlight units instead.

A study of 13 popular UK models found that replacing a traditional halogen bulb in an entry VW Polo costs £18 - however, if you buy a higher-spec GTI model you have to pay an eye-watering £846 for a new LED-sealed headlight unit.

When your stuff is designed to break down, that’s ‘planned obsolescence.’ In fourteen short years, we have gone from 2G wifi (2004) to 5G, from flip phone to smart phone. By design. Are we smarter? Healthier?

On September 26, 2018, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) voted to implement its Wireless Infrastructure Order (dockets 17-79 and 17-84).

GMO POTATO CREATOR NOW FEARS ITS IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH

Of all the genetic engineers who have renounced the technology—Arpad Pusztai, Belinda Martineau, Thierry Vrain, John Fagan and Michael Antoniou, among others—because of its shortsighted approach and ability to produce unintended and potentially toxic consequences, Caius Rommens' story may be the most compelling.

Rommens was director of research at Simplot Plant Sciences from 2000 to 2013 where he led development of the company's genetically engineered Innate potato. But over time, Rommens started to have serious doubts about his work and worried about potential health risks from eating the GMO potatoes, which are now sold in 4,000 supermarkets in the U.S.

Rommens' concerns about the GMO potato led him to write a book, Pandora's Potatoes, which was recently published. The book is a case study on how a scientist's initial enthusiasm about genetic engineering turns to doubt and fear as he realizes the hazards the technology can create.

A mysterious polio-like illness that paralyzes people may be surging this year

In the hospital, Carter lost control of his right arm, then over his legs and other muscles within a few days. He now can only wiggle a toe and move the left side of his face. He has been diagnosed with a mysterious, polio-like illness called acute flaccid myelitis, a condition that seems to be surging this year.

Through July, 32 new cases of AFM have been confirmed across the United States this year by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a sharp rise compared with last year, when just seven cases had been confirmed by that month. The numbers have risen steadily since April. In past years, most cases have occurred between August and December, with a peak in October.

How The CDC Made 30,000 Diagnoses Of Polio Instantly Disappear

The polio vaccine was licensed in the U.S. in 1954. From 1950 thru 1955, the striped and clear portions of the bars represent about 85% of the reported cases, or 30,000 per year, on average. Those cases were automatically eliminated by two radical changes the CDC made to the diagnostic parameters and labeling protocol of the disease as soon as the vaccine was licensed – 30,000 cases a year we were subsequently told were eliminated by the vaccine.

That success, held aloft as a banner of the industry, is an illusion. The CDC has an awesome power of control over public perception, sculpting it from behind closed doors in Atlanta, with the point of a pen.

Over the last sixty years in the U.S., more than a million cases of what would have been diagnosed as polio pre-vaccine – same symptoms – were given different labels.
