This post comes from a Facebook page & is marked public. See source page at the link & listen to Naomi Wolf speaking about the coming (?) Vaccine Passport which is identical to the CCC Social Credit system. The video may well not remain at FB as whilst listening myself, I received several notices from the so called ‘Fact Checkers’. EWR
‼️Naomi Wolf, Democrat with an important non-partisan message:‼️ Naomi R. Wolf is an American liberal feminist author, journalist. Following her first book The Beauty Myth, she became a leading spokeswoman of what has been described as the third wave of the feminist movement. ETA: She is speaking as a technician/CEO to explain the technology of this V.psprt, being proposed recently. This proposed V Psprt platform is the same platform being used to enslave over a billion people in China now It includes:
a rigorous -Social Credit System,
it will be one that rewards the discrediting of others
with severe penalties for attempting to discredit the wrong people
millions of 360 degree surveillance cameras outside and inside homes
It can find any dissonant in minutes
It can collate groups of dissonants, shut and lock down anyone’s ability to buy/sell/move -This can open or close opportunities to a person and any part of their future, in a microsecond.
to restrict development edits
to constrain payment provisions from bank card credits and PayPal, or Apple-Pay etc..
to keep people in “continually locked CV status” based on their own secret algorithms
their pursuit to indulge in tyrannically imposed public, mass behavior modifications
the restriction of any type of discussion within any place, including your own personal space like at home
the restriction of any type of communications technology through text, or even alleged walking by one.
it is already tied to Apple pay and Google wallets
there would be no opt-out options She’s been deplatformed 5 times since beginning to share this information This is the most dangerous technology she has ever seen. There’s no such thing as coming back from this. If this succeeds, there would be no such thing as refusing to opt-in From then on, there would be No more Capitalism No more Free assembly No more Privacy No more personal preferences nor even referencing any better choices without credit penalties. There would be no escape without substantial nuke’s-EPS, or solar CME’s wiping out everything else, too.
It completely violates The American Disability Act
It violently violates our 1st and 4th Amendments And yet, She is a Democrat? This is far beyond her partisanship with them.. It is advised to listen to her recommendations for further education on this topic. Search: Naomi Wolf this was originally posted on her personal page. FORBES published an article 4/6/21 saying there will not be a Federal Sponsored V.psprt. This occurs carefully worded. Be aware and watching for industry & corporations take on implementation of any/various kinds.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA –“When one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.” Joseph Goebbels, January 12, 1941 in Die Zeit ohne Beispiel.
Both Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have been on the market for decades, with mountains of data demonstrating their safety and efficacy. These drugs are also dirt cheap to manufacture and store. All of the foregoing is great news if the goals of U.S. government and big pharma is public health and eradicating COVID-19. But those never have been and never will be the goals. “They” want everyone injected with synthetic mRNA, synthetic DNA and nanoparticles.
In recent days and weeks, we’ve seen an unprecedented wave of censorship sweep across the internet. The only solution will be decentralized platforms that virtually eliminate censorship
In what appears to be a coordinated attack, Google, Apple and Amazon destroyed Parler, a main competitor to Twitter and Facebook, literally overnight by yanking it from their app stores and web hosting service. All of Parler’s vendors, from text message services and email providers to lawyers, also canceled their contracts
A social media purge began in earnest January 7 and 8, 2021, with the permanent ban of President Trump and a long list of other conservatives from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Twitter reportedly suspended more than 70,000 accounts during its weekend purge
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is calling for a racketeering investigation into Big Tech, saying Amazon, Apple and Google’s suspension of Parler is “clearly a violation of antitrust, civil rights and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act”
According to an October 2020 report by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google all have monopoly power and are using that power to rid themselves of competition
“Within the current system, the bottom line is you can be erased from the Internet at any moment, for any reason, by anyone with enough power. Decentralized DNS makes it virtually impossible for authorities to shut down access to the web and gives individuals real ownership over their digital identities, communication channels and means of commerce.” (coindesk.com)
NOTE: the whole article is reprinted here, if you find links not working as one reader has already reported, go to Dr Mercola dot com and type in this heading ‘Don’t Panic About Politics — Here’s Where Your True Power Lies’. The video at the link (not reproduced here) tells all. For a background to the oligarchs or ‘oiligarchs’ as James Corbett calls them the two videos in this post are an absolute must watch:
According to a survey by the American Psychology Association (APA) published October 7, 2020, 68% of Americans say the upcoming elections are a significant source of stress
The U.S. is more accurately described as a corporate oligarchy, as the main power lies with “The Big Six,” i.e., the banking, pharmaceutical, agricultural, military-industrial complex, energy and media industries
Regardless of who wins the presidency today, please realize that your power as an individual lies in your day-to-day decisions, including your dietary choices. This is more important than ever, seeing how diet-related comorbidities are responsible for 94% of COVID-19-related deaths
To fight the globalist technocratic system, consider getting involved in local government, elect a constitutional sheriff, purchase goods and services from companies whose values align with your own and don’t further the technocratic agenda, and buy locally grown foods (or grow your own) to promote food independence
Big Data is the new Big Oil, and Google leads the pack as a key data mining operation, and data mining is a crucial component of technocracy
This year’s presidential election is not for the faint of heart. In fact, over the past several months, mental health professionals have noted a significant uptick in anxiety and emotional distress related directly to today’s elections.
According to a survey1,2 by the American Psychology Association (APA) published October 7, 2020, 68% of Americans say the upcoming elections are a significant source of stress. Those with chronic health conditions are faring the worst, with 71% reporting feeling stressed about the elections, compared to 64% of those who do not have a chronic health condition.
A clear majority, 77% (up from 66% in 2019), also say they worry about the country’s future, and 71% say this is the lowest point in U.S. history that they can remember. As noted by the APA, uncertainty tends to foster stress, so it’s important to focus on the things that you do have control over. Recommendations provided include:
Avoid ruminating on worst-case scenarios
Engage in meaningful activities
Stay socially connected
Stay physically active
Revealing government and industry corruption as it impacts our personal health and security has been part of my educational mission since I started this newsletter. It has been my observation that such corruption invariably and inevitably ends up harming people’s ability to take control of their health.
Sadly, the problems have gotten progressively larger and more pervasive despite these attempts. Now, with the rollout of a clever technocratic agenda under the guise of COVID-19 pandemic responses, the depth and breadth of the problem is becoming more readily apparent, and it’s probably more disturbing than anything we’ve previously seen.
It doesn’t matter if the wrongdoers are Democrats or Republicans, my chief aim has always been to identify the root cause of the problem, which is that the United States is largely run by corporations, to the detriment of us all. The censorship implemented by Big Tech in the last couple of years is a strategy to spread their technocratic narrative and implement even further restrictions of our freedoms and personal liberty.
Today, we find ourselves struggling to access crucial information about topics that have significant bearing on our health and our lives: information about SARS-CoV-2’s origin and COVID-19 treatments being just two of many examples.
Despite all of that, I urge you to foster optimism toward the future and how we can use our individual power to collectively foster positive change — regardless of the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.
The US Has Become a Corporate Oligarchy
Unfortunately, positions of power have always attracted people who most want that power, and today we have many morally flawed people working in a corrupt government.
The goal of the technocratic agenda is to continue concentrating power at the global level. Ultimately, the goal is to take power away from the individual and concentrate it at the highest level possible, in the hands of unelected leaders. It’s really all about controlling the global population.
In a 2014 study,3 two political scientists explained that the U.S. is really an oligarchy, not a democracy, with the wealthiest elites in American society wielding the most control over the issues Congress and the White House ultimately take action on.
Career politicians and the allowance of massive corporate political contributions ensure this oligarchy will be a dominant force everyone needs to be aware of. Now, however, we’re starting to realize that it’s even worse than that. There’s an even greater power grab at work.
Ultimately, the technocratic plan is to govern society through technology, programmed by scientists and technicians and automated through the use of artificial intelligence, rather than through democratically elected politicians and government leaders.
Ultimately, the technocratic plan is to govern society through technology, programmed by scientists and technicians and automated through the use of artificial intelligence, rather than through democratically elected politicians and government leaders.
It is an alarming plan, once you begin to wrap your mind around it in its entirety, but it’s crucial to remember that only a fearful public can allow the technocratic elite to dictate our future and rip away our personal freedoms. It’s fear itself that allows tyranny to flourish. There are more of us than there are of them, but enough of us must be willing to stand up and say no, we won’t accept this plan.
Fortunately, scientists, lawyers, medical professionals and academics are increasingly recognizing that the deliberate fear-mongering that has kept the COVID-19 pandemic alive now threatens to replace democracy with “fascist totalitarian models” of government, and more are now trying to speak out and inform others. In Germany, a Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee4,5 is also preparing the biggest class-action lawsuit in history6,7,8,9 to expose the COVID-19 fraud.
Media, Big Tech and the Military-Industrial Complex
As noted in my interview with investigative journalist Whitney Webb this past Sunday, “the line between Silicon Valley and the national security state has become so blurred, you really can’t distinguish where one begins and what were the other ends.” Media also play a crucial role in this scheme, as they are refusing to report the truth about what’s happening, and won’t lay out the ramifications of going along with the various plans currently being introduced.
As just one example, in my interview with Webb, she describes the undisclosed implications of Operation Warp Speed, a program funded and operated primarily by the CIA and the U.S. military. It’s not just about the rapid creation of therapeutics and vaccines for COVID-19. The program includes a whole lot more than that, and appears to be a key component of a new biosurveillance system in which our very biology is being monitored and capitalized upon.
All of this is of course in addition to all the other conflicts of interest that have permeated our society, such as agricultural policies that feed into the agendas of Big Pharma and the pesticide industry.
The media has also been consolidated — to the point that 90% of what you read in newspapers, magazines and see on TV is now controlled by six media giants.10 This consolidation allows for tremendous influence on all matters, and has led to censorship being more the rule than the exception.
True unbiased, in-depth investigative journalism has joined the hairy-nosed wombat as an incredibly rare and near-extinct species, and you’d be wise to not swallow whole everything you read in mainstream media.
American internet giants have also proven themselves to be a core part of the U.S. surveillance apparatus, as detailed in “Harvard Professor Exposes Surveillance Capitalism.” Big Data is the new Big Oil, and Google leads the pack as a key data mining operation, and data mining is a crucial component of technocracy.
Without this vast data stream, the plan simply cannot work. This is why I’ve been urging everyone to eliminate Google and Facebook from your life. There are now plenty of alternatives that are not engaged in massive personal data mining and theft.
Don’t Panic — Refocus
Regardless of who wins the presidency, please realize that your power as an individual lies in your day-to-day decisions, and that no matter who bears the title of president of the United States, the corporate influence will remain, as will the threat of the technocratic agenda.
Also realize that creating divisiveness among people is part of a carefully orchestrated plan that works in the oligarchy’s favor, so we really need to get smarter about how we engage in the political process and avoid falling for their carefully constructed and sophisticated propaganda that limit us from having any really hopeful choices.
As long as we’re at each other’s throats over things we have little or no control over, it distracts us from analyzing and addressing the underlying system that is creating the problems in the first place. So, let people have their opinion, whether we’re talking about political or presidential candidates, because these are all false choices anyway.
Ultimately, controlling interests are writing the laws and paying the politicians to pass them. But knowledge is power, so use your knowledge to take control. I believe it’s crucial to understand where the technocrats are trying to take us, so if you haven’t read through the articles I linked to earlier, consider going through them.
Avoid Victim Mentality by Realizing Where Your Power Lies
The power of the individual is alive and well, even in this deeply flawed system, and even in the face of growing totalitarianism. It becomes yours by stepping outside of the system with every decision and purchase you make.
With every action you take, you also set the example for others to follow, thereby making you a change-agent within your own small circle of family, friends and acquaintances. In the end, our collective actions will create the changes that are so desperately needed, and thinking locally will eventually have a global effect, not just in terms of commerce, but in terms of safeguarding our constitutional rights as well.
It’s important to realize that the only reason technocracy has not yet been able to overtake the U.S. — although they’re getting incredibly close — is because of our Constitution. This is why we must fight to protect our Constitution at all costs. One of the most effective ways to do this is through grassroots movements and getting involved in local politics.
What the technocrats are doing is making an end run around national sovereignty. Rather than a frontal assault on the system, which has never been successful, they’re simply eroding national sovereignty piece by piece. In “The Pressing Dangers of Technocracy” (hyperlinked above), American constitutionalist Patrick Wood reviews what we can do to save our republic and thwart the steady march of technocracy:
“I believe very strongly that local activism is the only way to rebuild our country, if there is going to be any rebuilding at all. Local activism — because this is how they got us. They built [the technocratic system] from the bottom up. We cannot tear their house down from the top down. It’s simply is just not going to happen. They’re too powerful.
There is no national government or any element of national government that’s going to save us from these technocrats and technocracy. There’s no state government, either, or local government, the way it stands now, unless that local government gets influenced and populated by people who know better and who are willing to tell these others:
‘Go away, you don’t belong here. This is not the way we’re going to run our community, our town, our city,’ whatever it is, and we have access to those people.”
“This is a crucial time in American history, and we actually have a peaceful and effective solution to it. The only thing that needs to happen is your local officials, especially your sheriff, keep [their] oath of office. That’s the only thing he has to do … The sheriff is here to protect your civil liberties, your God given rights.”
If enough people get involved and make sure they elect sheriffs who follow the Constitution, we can create Constitutional counties and take back America, county by county, one sheriff at a time.
Eventually, all the police forces will be on the same page as well, and will no longer enforce unlawful, unconstitutional orders, whatever they may be, including unconstitutional mask and vaccination mandates. Another way you can have a significant impact is by getting personally involved in local government.
Aside from those two key areas of influence, remember the industries that are currently buying our politicians and writing their own laws cannot maintain power without your ongoing support. While we may not have a significant choice in how our tax contributions are distributed to these industries through subsidies and contracts, we do have a very powerful influence by making responsible purchases each and every day.
Withdraw your financial support by not buying what they’re selling (or using their product if it’s free, such as Google and Facebook, where your personal data is what they make their money on) and you automatically redistribute financial power to more benevolent businesses that are aligned with your core principles.
An example of this is when you buy locally-grown foods from an organic farmer. You’re empowering that farmer to continue growing foods for the community that support environmental regeneration and human health, and you’re disempowering the big junk food manufacturers that wield undue influence over agricultural policy. This is how you wield your collective power, and the decisions each of us make every day therefore matter.
Realize ‘Left Versus Right’ Is a False Narrative
We should not play the game and choose to be part of this false narrative of “left versus right,” or “Democrat versus Republican.” Technocracy is not a political system and it does not belong to or support either side. It is an economic system based on technological control and digital surveillance.
Most people are still trapped in the mindset of opposition and there are great people across the board that need to come together. Readers of Mercola.com are split almost evenly between those identifying as Republican or Democrat, and working collectively has produced tremendous results by strategically organizing consumer marketplace pressure.
We must keep in mind that it is the concentration and accumulation of power that is a clear and present danger to our individual rights, and that this accumulation of power is attracting the worst kinds of people who seek control and power.
To learn more about how a tiny minority of people, the ultra-wealthy elite, have caused a majority of the environmental, financial and health challenges currently facing us, see my recent interview with Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., featured in “Oneness Versus the 1%.”
Food Independence Is Key to Other Forms of Independence
It’s time to dissent, to step out of the globalist technocratic system. I’ve already listed some key ways to do that: Get involved in local government; focus on getting a constitutional sheriff; and buy or use products made by companies whose core values align with your own and don’t further the technocratic agenda of totalitarian control.
Another key area of focus would be your food. If you cannot grow your own, then get to know the farmer that can. Keep your money in your community; the closer the better. Kissinger said it best:11 “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”
If you don’t like the state of the nation (or the world), stop eating processed and ultra-processed junk foods. Some may initially think this decision would have nothing to do with anything that is wrong in the world, but if you give it some thought, you’ll realize that the more independence you gain with your food, the more independence you will create in other areas as well.
Because food is such a potent form of control, breaking that control mechanism will have a ripple effect that extends outward into many other industries and fields of activity, including the political arena.
Food is important for another reason too. We now know that insulin resistance is a key risk factor for severe COVID-19 and death. Since diet-related comorbidities are responsible for 94% of all COVID-19-related deaths, taking control of your diet is a simple, common-sense strategy to lower the risks associated with this infection.
Break the Chains of Control
So, instead of fretting about the election, use it as motivation to step into your personal power, and join the revolution to create independence and break the chains of control.
Sooner or later everyone must decide which is more important: personal liberty or false security? The good news is that many are in fact starting to see the writing on the wall and starting to choose liberty over brutal totalitarianism in the name of public health.
Bioterrorism is now used to keep us in fear, and fear is what allows the technocrats to implement their agenda. Part of the answer, therefore, is to educate yourself about this supposed threat. In previous articles, I’ve addressed the importance of outing and pushing back against biowarfare research.
I’ve also reviewed data showing this pandemic really isn’t something to fear, as the lethality of this virus is no greater than that of seasonal influenza. I’ve also covered many prevention and treatment strategies that have shown tremendous success. At the end of the day, the more knowledgeable you are, the less fearful you’ll be.
Deal with the devil: Monsanto PAID Google to CENSOR search results, discredit journalists
(Natural News) If you’ve ever wondered why there isn’t more outrage over the dangers of pesticides and herbicides, even as environmental consciousness seems to be rising, the answer is simple: Manufacturers like Monsanto have entire departments devoted to discrediting journalists who expose their corrupt ways and paying off Google to censor search results.
SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=35994 Diane writes in to ask if there are any protests against these lockdowns anywhere. The answer is a resounding yes, but the fact that people aren’t hearing about these protests speaks volumes in and of itself.

GOOGLE WHISTLEBLOWER TELLS ALL Zach Vorhies, former Google engineer-turned-whistleblower, joins Del in-studio where he reveals what he found while working there, and why he had to sound the alarm on the tech giant.
Something interesting happened in the health world recently, and I haven’t seen any news stories about it.
Google is deliberately censoring all “non-mainstream” health websites that have gained any kind of serious traction, without exception.
They’re not showing information that users want to see, or respecting what they’re searching for. Instead, Google is taking it on themselves to decide what health information you’re allowed to see, and changing your search results from behind the scenes.
I know what you’re probably thinking: this sounds like a conspiracy theory.
But that’s exactly why I wrote this post. If you look at the evidence I present in this post, you’ll quickly see that this is no kooky conspiracy theory — it’s real, and barely even a secret.
Now, when I say “censor,” I mean that Google has deliberately placed a systematic penalty on the vast majority of health sites to make sure that they don’t show up on the first page of search results. SelfHacked and Examine are just two of the sites that have been caught up in Google’s latest “blacklist” — but we’re also far from the only ones.
You can easily see this in action for yourself. In order to find SelfHacked content on Google now, you have to add “SelfHacked” to your search term or else it won’t show up. This isn’t the case if you try the same searches on Bing, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo, where we still rank highly for many health-related search terms. (DuckDuckGo has additional benefits in that they don’t track you and serve much fewer ads, by the way.)
This isn’t just a change that affects service providers like us — these changes are also going to have a major effect on everyone’s ability to find accurate, scientific, and useful health information online.
Google as the Thought Police
Google has become the Thought Police for health content.
There’s been a lot of news about big tech companies de-platforming and censoring controversial figures.
Now, I’m not a conspiracy theorist, and I don’t subscribe to Google being bought out by big pharma — or at least, I don’t believe that’s their main influence.
I chalk it up to Google’s ideological echo chamber.
The question is, who gave Google the authority to say that SelfHacked and the hundreds of other sites they are censoring are not reliable websites?
For example, Google’s John Mueller keeps claiming that Google ranks sites that display “expertise,” “authoritativeness,” and “trustworthiness” (E-A-T). He has even suggested that website owners like me can improve our site’s rankings by asking other experts to weigh in on whether our site has these characteristics, and adjust it accordingly until relevant experts approve.
The thing is, no matter who I ask, they’ve all told me that SelfHacked is already authoritative, trustworthy, and displays expertise. You can look at any of our posts and judge for yourself.
Google, which recently implemented another one of its “broad core” search engine updates, has decided to arbitrarily remove Mercola.com from its search results – for no other reason than the fact that Mercola.com bravely tells the politically-incorrect truth about things like genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and vaccines.
Similar to what Facebook recently did to Natural News, Google took it upon itself to punish Mercola.com for daring to challenge the status quo on important topics that affect the lives and liberty of all Americans.
The ‘fact checking’ crew have been sifting through all that information from all of those truther sites for you … just in case you don’t have the intelligence to discern what is factual and what is fiction for yourself. I’ve encountered their little ‘fact checker’ logo pop up on a link I tried to follow up on Facebook. Needless to say I declined their check link & proceeded at my own risk. No thanks. (It concerned the truth about vaccines actually).
And just who are the ‘fact checking crew’? Parading as humanitarian, the real face of who is checking the ‘facts’ won’t be surprising to some of us. You know, those same old names that pop up everywhere there is cause for concern. Names like Bill & Melinda Gates, Google, George Soros, Rupert Murdoch, FB & many more. Their far reaching tentacles are everywhere on the planet.
It really does look like ‘they’ wish to control what you believe doesn’t it? Or should I say continue to control? After all they’ve been at it for many years & now the game is over & we know who they are they’re in damage control mode.
Thanks to the research of AmazingPolly and her YT Channel for this video.
NOTE: I find this to be true. Today I searched alternative search engines to bring up Dr. Mercola’s site. Everywhere I saw derogatory articles, posts on his ‘doubtful’ credibility and could not bring up his site at all. I tried three different search engines. The censorship has indeed cracked down. So what are they afraid of? Folk might find out some truth about the pharmaceutical industry? About how the natural health industry was sidelined. Been saying for a while now, the day will come that sites like this one will be history. The net’s drawing tighter. EnvirowatchRangitikei
(Natural News) There’s a strong argument to be made that if iron-fisted tyranny ever comes to America, the statists in Silicon Valley will be leading the charge. These people (including workers at Facebook, Twitter, and especially Google) think nothing of undermining the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech in order to fulfill the Left’s twisted political agendas. Silicon Valley’s ongoing and seemingly unstoppable censorship of the Internet is, to a large extent, planting the seeds of tyranny in the fabric of America.
Google censors content it doesn’t like
Late last month, Ray Gano published an article on his website discussing how Google is suppressing medical information and other content that the company deems unfit for readers. On page 108 of Google’s handbook, for example, Google states that “pages that directly contradict well established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information” are suppressed on its search engine, “unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”
Notably, Google also states that “pages that directly contradict well-established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories)” are also hidden from users, again, “unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”
The question, of course, is as follows: does Google have to abide by the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech as outlined in the First Amendment, or does it get to dictate which users get to practice their rights and which users don’t? Considering the fact that the Constitution is the highest law in the land, Google should be compelled to abide by it, regardless of whether or not the page contradicts “well established scientific or medical consensus” or “well-established historical facts.”
Love this site. Last video I watched of Mike Adams speaking, he said he is targeted, not surprisingly. He continually & relentlessly exposes the lies of the ‘big boys’. They want to tell us how to think. We might think too hard by ourselves & figure out what they are up to.
(Natural News) In order to salvage the failing mainstream media and stop the public from getting news elsewhere, advertising and search engine behemoth Google plans to invest $300 million into a new algorithm that, for all intents and purposes, threatens to permanently destroy the independent news industry.
Known as the “Google News Initiative,” the program will redirect advertising dollars back to mainstream publishers and away from many up-and-coming news outlets that have broken free from the Wall Street propaganda machine. Google says it will begin to work with publishers to “elevate accuracy, quality content and stem the flow of misinformation and disinformation” – which is just code speak for censorship.
If Google gets its way – and what’s to stop the company at this point? – then you can say goodbye to websites like Natural News that probably won’t make the “cut” in terms of meeting Google’s “truth” standards. Google will quickly become the sole decider in what constitutes “quality journalism,” which it will prop to the top of the search engine list, while everything else will be de-prioritized.
In a statement, Google explained that it plans to work with the “news industry” to combat “fake news” and “build a stronger future for journalism.” And the company is teaming up with legacy names like The Washington Post, The New York Times, Financial Times, and media mogul Gannett Company, Inc. to make that happen.
“The initiative will include a new lab to analyze and parse out what is deemed ‘mis- and disinformation during elections and breaking news moments;’ a fact-checking partnership with Stanford University and corporate media non-profit groups like the Local Media Association and the Poynter Institute; and a new service meant to expedite reader subscriptions to pay-gated news websites, among other new projects,” explains Mint Press News writer Elliott Gabriel about the upcoming changes.
(Natural News) The latest idea from Google goes beyond mere Orwellian Big Brother into full-blown automated robotic parenting. The company is planning a series of smart home technologies that will keep an eye on children and discipline them in lieu of their actual parents, warned an article from The Daily Mail.
Google filed a patent involving a smart home monitoring system that uses cameras, microphones, motion sensors, and thermal imaging to keep an eye on mischievous members of the family while the parents are away.
The real-time information will be analyzed by Google Home, the company’s flagship smart speaker/home assistant product, which will formulate appropriate disciplinary actions.
Another potential product is a smart device that presumes to advise parents on ways to improve their relationships with their children, such as urging them to devote more time and attention to their kids during dinner.
According to The Times, the planned smart device will keep track of chores such as taking the trash out. It will be able to remember who failed to finish or accomplish their assigned chores.
Misbehaving children will be punished by restricting their mobile phone usage. And like any good informant, the Google smart device can also report their bad behavior to their parents. It can use infrared sensors to record the body temperatures of the kids, and it would eventually learn to discern certain sounds such as crying and laughter.
“It may be beneficial to monitor the emotional state of occupants in a household,” the Google patent said.
