People with bad “social credit” in China now banned from using trains, airplanes


China has already thought of a couple of ways of applying their unique “Social Credit System” in order to punish deserving citizens. According to online reports, the country plans to ban certain individuals from boarding airplanes and trains if they are among those who are deemed unworthy based on the Social Credit System. People who have taken these transportation systems before and subsequently committed any crimes or transgressions will be banned from using them again for up to a year.

This is based on statements put forth through the official website of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, which also stated that anyone who has committed certain acts, such as spreading false information about terrorism, causing trouble on flights, using expired tickets, and smoking on trains will be among those who are put on the restricted lists. The statements were said to be dated March 2 but weren’t issued until March 16.

In case you weren’t aware, the Social Credit System is China’s unique new method of ranking its citizens based on a number of different factors. Primarily, it is based on online activity and online behavior, for which the government gathers the necessary data about the citizens through the multitude of mobile apps and online services that they use…. more

This credit system is paving the way for a one world system to control the people and their actions. Those that follow Jesus with their whole heart will be persecuted, because Satan hates God. This system will be everywhere when the time is right. Not sure what the name will be other than what scripture says “Mark of the Beast”. For those that are True Believers in Christ we will not be here during the Tribulation but for those that are left here they will bow to the Antichrist or be beheaded.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

New California Bill Would ELIMINATE Free Speech, Require ‘Online Fact Checkers’


California Senator Richard Pan, the infamous fascist who forced a mandatory vaccination law through in order to rake in money from big pharma, has decided there should no longer be free speech for anyone other than the government. Pan’s new bill proposes to require “online fact checkers” to verify content before anything can be posted on the internet.

Anyone who has ever said tyranny cannot come to America has been proven wrong. Pan’s new bill would basically outlaw questioning the government’s official narrative, and is reminiscent of the book burning days of Nazi Germany. The bill supposedly only targets social media in California, but as Jon Rappaport points out, once you read the bill, it applies to the whole of the internet.

This isn’t some sort of prank either. The leftists in power are getting desperate in their attempt to control information and produce propaganda and this is just more evidence of such. We experienced evidence of this yesterday when SHTFPlan reported that the Department of Homeland Security has been instructed to compile a database of all journalists and online “media influencers.”… more

What does this sound like? China readying Social Credit System where citizens receive scores based on their online obedience to the state —- China is planning to implement a system wherein its citizens will be ranked and given ratings based on a certain set of specified criteria, like social media activity and online obedience to the state. The system, called the Social Credit System, is said to be in place for a country-wide launch some time in 2020. Some Chinese citizens don’t seem to be bothered by it at all, but many have expressed staunch opposition….

Google Chrome browser scans all the files on your computer, including private photos, documents and spreadsheets


Google has come under fire for many questionable actions as of late — and the startling revelation that their widely used web browser, Google Chrome, is scanning personal computers around the world is nothing short of infuriating for its users. Big Brother is here — and countless numbers of people have invited this authoritarian presence (in one form or another) while being none the wiser. Indeed, some of the world’s largest corporations (like Google and Amazon) are continuing to find new ways to invade user privacy.

In addition to a spying web browser, devices like Google Home and the Amazon Echo (and Alexa) are going places where the prying eyes of corporate interests have never gone before. Worse still, they’ve convinced us to willingly purchase these devices and place them in our homes. People are actually paying for the “privilege” of being spied on — all the while turning a blind eye to the total invasion of privacy for the sake of “convenience” and keeping up with the Jones’…. more

We use brave (browser) and epic search (browser) and we also use start page (search engine) or duck duck go (search engine). These are all private browsers and search engines.

***Live Updates*** Round Two: Mark Zuckerberg Testifies Before Congress


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, April 11, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election and data privacy. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee today after testifying before the Senate Commerce and Judiciary Committees yesterday. Just nine of the 55 members on the Committee have not received any donations from Facebook.

Breitbart Tech’s Allum Bokhari, who has been out front and a must-read on all things Big Tech and Facebook, suggested four critical questions that Senators should ask Zuckerberg. He has six more that the House should ask him today.

Though the legacy media want the focus of the hearing to be about privacy, the bigger issue is whether Facebook is working to blunt the influence of right-of-center news outlets and personalities while propping up establishment outlets and those in good standing with them…. more

AI is the “enabling technology” for the coming global surveillance state… you will be watched by artificial intelligence


By the end of 2018, police departments across the United States will begin to use body cameras equipped with facial recognition, artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The technology is intended to scan all the faces in a crowd of people to help identify suspects and missing persons. The algorithm notifies an officer when their body camera has scanned a suspect, giving them the opportunity to act in some way.

The technology will indiscriminately analyze the details of everyone’s face in real time — a massive breach of privacy. The technology, intended to help law enforcement, will readily be abused and misused. This AI surveillance system, still in development, will be the “enabling technology” for the coming global surveillance state.

Everyone is going to be watched, 24-7. This will make it very easy to control people’s behavior and make them obedient to authority. This AI-driven global surveillance state will track your every move, understand your personality, and work to manipulate you. As everyone becomes watched and analyzed nonstop, it will be easier for authorities to tell people how to act, what to buy, what to think…. more

EVERYBODY RUNS: YOUR SMARTPHONE LOCATION-AWARE DATA IS BEING USED AND SOLD WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT


mobile-location-data-being-sold-minority-report-has-come-true-tracking-mark-beast-666If you’ve ever felt clever because an app on your phone asked to track your location and you said no, this should make you feel a little less smug: There are plenty of ways to track you without getting your permission. Some of the most intrusive are the easiest to implement. Your telco knows where you are at all times, because it knows which cell towers your phone is near. In the U.S., how much data service-providers sell is up to them.

AS LOCATION-AWARE ADVERTISING GOES MAINSTREAM—LIKE THAT JACK IN THE BOX AD THAT APPEARS WHENEVER YOU GET NEAR ONE, IN WHICHEVER APP YOU HAVE OPEN AT THE TIME—AND AS POPULAR APPS HARVEST YOUR LUCRATIVE LOCATION DATA, THE POTENTIAL FOR LEAKING OR EXPLOITING THIS DATA HAS NEVER BEEN HIGHER.

EDITOR’S NOTE: When the movie Minority Report was released back in 2007, audiences were thrilled to see the technological marvels that would come true for some future generation down the line. Funny thing is, though, just about everything shown in the movie has already come true, including the persistent mobile advertising that follows your every move. The every move of billions of people all being tracked and recorded by a personal device in their pocket…and it’s not even the mark of the beast yet. Imagine that.

It’s true that your smartphone’s location-tracking capabilities can be helpful, whether it’s alerting you to traffic or inclement weather. That utility is why so many of us are giving away a great deal more location data than we probably realize. Every time you say “yes” to an app that asks to know your location, you are also potentially authorizing that app to sell your data…. more

Who’s Spying On Us? Rogue Listening Devices Found in Washington DC


For the first time, the US government has publicly acknowledged the existence in Washington, DC of what appear to be rogue devices that foreign spies and criminals could be using to track individual cellphones and intercept calls and messages.

The use of such devices, known as cellphone-site simulators, by foreign powers has long been a concern. However, American intelligence and law enforcement agencies — which use such eavesdropping equipment themselves — have been silent on the matter until now.

The issue came to light after the Department of Homeland Security responded to a recent inquiry from Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR)…. more

Mind Reading Machine: Will This Technology Be Used in the Mark of the Beast?


It seems incredible to me how technology is advancing at breakneck speed just within the last year. We’ve read and seen how AI (Artificial Intelligence) robots are becoming more and more human-like. “Sophia” – the most famous of these robots has even been awarded citizenship in Saudi Arabia!

But today I read a story which sent cold chills down my spine. There is now a machine that can read your thoughts and translate them into data (words). The scientists are saying that it is 90% accurate.

A thought came to my mind immediately: Could this technology be used by Antichrist in the Mark which he will demand all people receive during the Tribulation? This “mark” will most likely have everything there is to know about you – your name, your address, your healthcare, your bank account; and if this new mind reading technology is also inserted in the “chip” (Mark of the beast) all thoughts will be laid bare to the authorities. Of course, those who willingly take the mark of the beast are destined to hell…. more
