Hero With a Bullhorn Reads the Internet to Julian Assange From the Sidewalk

A hero with a bullhorn has taken to reading Julian Assange the internet from the sidewalk outside of the Ecuadorian Embassy, as the nation cut off the Wikileaks founder’s access to the world wide web.

Wearing a tie and a sign around his neck that reads, “Julian Assange’s Personal Internet Service,” comedian Bobby Mair stood outside the embassy on Wednesday shouting the day’s “internet highlights” to the controversial publisher.

Mair read Assange his horoscope — which suggested meditation.

“In your hometown right now of Townsville, it’s like 32 degrees [Celsius, 90 Fahrenheit]. Maybe some of your childhood friends are having a nice day.” Mair read through the bullhorn towards Assange’s window. “Maybe you could write them a letter.”

The comedian also read Assange the list of what is trending on Facebook, including the fact that Phil Collins is going on tour. He proceeded to sing Collin’s hit song, “In the Air Tonight.”

Eventually, a police officer approached Mair and asked him to turn the megaphone down a bit, which he complied with.

“I thought about it, and realized they probably just changed the password on the wifi in the embassy,” Mair shouted. “So I thought of some passwords they might have changed it to at the Ecuadorian Embassy — try ‘Quito,’ that’s Ecuador’s capital! ‘South America’ — people aren’t creative with their passwords, try ‘South America.’ Try ‘yummy coffee’ maybe…”

“If that doesn’t work 1-2-3-4-5-6, but I know sometimes you only get three tries… so maybe leave out yummy coffee.”

Mair then appeared close to a breakdown as he screamed for Assange to pay attention to him and come out on the balcony to say that he got the information.

It remains unclear if Assange appreciated, or even heard, his personal “internet service,” but the internet sure did. I suppose those of us who saw it are the last ones who needed it, though.

It’s Over The US Hands Internet Control To ICANN

Capping a highly politicized debate, the US government on Saturday let go of its remaining grip on the internet, handing control of the net’s address book to a nonprofit.

Saying free speech in the virtual realm was at stake, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and others had tried to block the transfer. But a federal judge denied on Friday their request for an injunction and the scheduled handoff took place at midnight.

The transfer involved the internet’s domain name system, or DNS, which translates the Web addresses you type into your browser, like “cnet.com,” into the numerical language that net-connected computers use to communicate.Image result for iCANN TAKEover

Under a plan that’s been in the works for years, the US Department of Commerce shuttled control of the DNS to a nonprofit called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), whose multiple stakeholders include technical experts, as well as representatives of governments and businesses.

Cruz and other critics had argued the transfer could lead to authoritarian countries taking control of the internet and eventually censoring content throughout the world.

Imagine an internet run like many Middle Eastern countries that punish what they deem to be blasphemy,” Cruz said at a congressional hearing on September 14. “Or imagine an internet run like China or Russia that punish and incarcerate those who engage in political dissent.”

“When ICANN escapes from [US] government authority,” Cruz said, “ICANN escapes from having to worry about the First Amendment, from having to worry about protecting your rights or my rights.”

But ICANN said such fears were uninformed.

“ICANN is a technical organization and does not have the remit or ability to regulate content on the internet,” the group said prior to the transfer. “That is true under the current contract with the US government and will remain true without the contract with the US government.”

Supporters of the hand-off also argued that preventing the transfer could actually lessen US impact on the net.

Russia and China, among others, had backed the idea of empowering an obscure United Nations body called the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) with internet governance duties. That would have given governments control, but it also would have diminished the relative importance of tech powers like the States.

On Wednesday, the attorneys general of Arizona, Nevada, Oklahoma, andTexas filed a lawsuit (PDF) to block the turnover. But a federal judge in the Southern District of Texas denied that request for a temporary restraining order.

ICANN said Saturday that the handoff would ensure an open internet.

“This transition was envisioned 18 years ago, yet it was the tireless work of the global internet community, which drafted the final proposal, that made this a reality,” ICANN Board Chair Stephen D. Crocker said in a statement. “This community validated the multistakeholder model of internet governance. It has shown that a governance model defined by the inclusion of all voices, including business, academics, technical experts, civil society, governments and many others is the best way to assure that the internet of tomorrow remains as free, open and accessible as the internet of today.”

The Internet Governance Coalition, a group of companies that includes Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Verizon, also expressed approval of the move but offered a more measured assessment.

“A plan has been implemented that includes strong accountability measures and upholds the bottom-up approach that embodies the very nature of the open internet we experience today,” the group said in a statement prepared Friday. “Although this is an important step in the transition process, there is still much work that needs to be done to ensure the accountability and transparency of ICANN. We look forward to working with the multistakeholder community on these ongoing efforts.”

A representative for Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt said Laxalt and the other AGs were reviewing their legal options. The other attorneys general, as well as Cruz, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

After Reading This You May Never Want To Use WiFi Again


(NaturalHealth365) The 5G revolution is rushing toward us and it will bring a whole new era of harm from ultra-high microwave frequency radiation.  And those who raise their voices against the danger to our health and our human rights to safety have been the subject of harassment, intimidation and attempts to silence them.

On July 14, the FCC voted to unleash 5G in the United States, approving sweeping Spectrum Frontiers rules to make spectrum bands above 24 GHz available for 5G.  Even though serious health risks are associated with the proliferation of cell phone technology, the attitude of the FCC seems to be ‘full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes.’

The July 14 vote was preceded, a month earlier, by a June 20th announcement by FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, in which he enthusiastically heralded the coming rollout of 5g applications and networks as a “game-changer” and a “national priority” that will generate “tens of billions of dollars.”

Warning for humanity: The FCC automatically approves the use of untested frequencies

The 5G network will use higher frequency bands than previously thought possible – which are untested frequencies of 24 to 100 GHz or more.  Wheeler said that implementing the new frequencies would necessitate new antennas – intended to aim and amplify the signals – new infrastructure and a massive deployment of towers throughout the United States.

The FCC is moving quickly to adapt 5G technology. Wheeler said that Verizon and ATT will start 5g trials in 2017, with the first commercial deployments scheduled for 2020. Specifically rejecting the notion of 5G being only for urban use, Wheeler noted that all areas, including rural communities, will be saturated.

In other words: No part of the country will be safe from ultra-high frequency signals.

With obvious relish, Wheeler spoke of “turning innovators loose” to develop and adapt 5G and related networks. And, as for those ‘annoying regulators’ – who could presumably stand between us and harm from electromagnetic radiation – Wheeler rejects the idea that these cautious people should be allowed to define our future.

Gestapo tactics are being used to silence criticism of 5G technology

At the July 14th press conference, Bloomberg News reporter Todd Shields had his press credentials confiscated by members of the FCC security force.  His offense?  He was in the act of speaking with safety advocates concerned about radiation, who wanted to show him a tee shirt symbolizing their concerns.

Shields openly confronted Wheeler during the press conference, relating how his credentials had been seized and asking for comment. Wheeler told Shields he could have his credentials back, but went on, unbelievably, to remind him that everyone who came to the press conference had a duty to “behave responsibly.” (in other words, follow orders or get out)

Who is behaving “responsibly” here – the FCC chair who is shamelessly pushing 5G, or the activists who are trying to hold him accountable?  This video (below) says it all – judge for yourself:

Proof of harm

Remember – things that the government once tested and considered “safe” include such toxic horrors as thalilomide, smoking, asbestos, lead paint, and Agent Orange.  Can we really trust these so-called government ‘health’ agencies?

Consider this: A $25m government study by the National Toxicology Program has concluded that wireless radiation causes cancer.  Natural health advocates say that 70 percent of non-industry studies assess wireless radiation as harmful; with industry studies, the effects are reversed – with only 32 percent showing that wireless radiation is harmful.  But, either way, the dangers are clear and being ignored by our government due to corporate interests.

The public is at risk: Corporate giants care more about revenue and ignore the dangers

As the annual financial reports of such corporations as Verizon and T-Mobile reveal, the companies acknowledge they are subject to litigation relating to the alleged health effects of wireless phones and radio frequency transmitters. The companies warn that this could result in significant damages; they also admit that wireless technology and adverse health effects do exist – including the threat of cancer.

Already, Nokia is a defendant in 19 separate lawsuits filed in Washington, D.C. alleging that radio emissions from cell phones caused their brain tumors. The lawsuits allege an industry-wide conspiracy to manipulate the science and testing around emissions guidelines – and the world will be watching as this drama unfolds.

Take action to stop 5G cellular technology

The following pair of websites offer clear and practical ways to stop the spread of 5G technology.

Go to ParentsForSafeTechnology.org and learn how to write, call and email the relevant agencies to inform them that this wireless deployment must be stopped immediately.  The site provides addresses for the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, as well as the CDC, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences, and the National Toxicology Program.

After emailing, make sure to send a copy to your elected officials, and also email a copy to the FCC.

You can also demand a systematic review of 5G by the EPA, and insist that the review be accompanied by the development of proper safety standards.  In addition, you can subscribe for more solutions at TakeBackYourPower.net to receive updates on liability actions.

Former congressional candidate and safety advocate Kevin Mottus warns that schoolchildren are already developing cancer and neurological symptoms as a result of exposure to wireless routers. “We are microwaving our population,” Mottus declares.  It’s time to take action.

The unthinkable – an internet controlled and operated by the United Nations.

If the U.N. INTERNET TAKE OVER happens it could change the Internet and our world as we know it. When Obama was president, he announced publicly the plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet – he also promised the United Nations would never take control. But if the U.S. gives up internet protections, the likely result could be the U.N. taking control of the internet under the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) on September 30.

What would the implications be of a takeover of the World Wide Web by the United Nations under ICANN?

Censorship galore. Think communist China – so called “conspiracy theories” and unfavorable opinions would cease to exist. Calling George Soros an evil bastard would not be possible.

Indeed, with all the funding Soros gives to “globalism” to destabilize countries in favor of international governing rackets, the U.N. would certainly protect their sugar daddy the way CNN protects Hillary Clinton.

Speaking of Soros, he has his ugly crinkly hands all over this issue – a leaked document by DCLeaks shows that Soros’s Open Society Foundation called for regulating the internet to favor it’s supporters. Maybe the “Open Society Foundation” should change it’s name to the Censored Society Foundation because such a proposal is ludicrous.

From the Daily Caller –

An internal proposed strategy from George Soros’s Open Society Justice Initiative calls for international regulation of private actors’ decisions on “what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain.” Those regulations, the document notes, should favor “those most supportive of open society.”

“Our freedom of expression work furthers the free exchange of information and ideas via the media and internet, and proposes to begin to address the free expression and association rights of NGOs. The internet has been a key tool for promoting freedom of expression and open societies — as in the Arab Spring — and is a potential safeguard against monopoly control of information in such places as China and Central Asia”

“But it is also presenting underaddressed challenges, including lack of regulation of private operators that are able to decide, without due process procedures, what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain. A ‘race to the bottom’ results from the agendas of undemocratic governments that seek to impose their hostility to free speech on the general online environment. We seek to ensure that, from among the norms emerging in different parts of the world, those most supportive of open society gain sway.”
~Open Society Foundation Document.

Without the U.S. contract allowing ICANN to keep it’s anti-trust exemption, ICANN would seek to be overseen by another government group.

Already, authoritarian regimes have proposed that ICANN become another arm of the U.N. to make it easier for these regimes to censor the internet globally.

There is still some time for Congress and We The People to come together and fight back – demand our legislators vote and prevent the Obama administration from giving up protection of the internet.

Border Guard To Start asking for your social media accounts

The US government is proposing making social media accounts part of the visa screening process for entry into the country.

US Customs and Border Protection’s proposed change would add a line on both the online and paper forms of the visa application form that visitors to the US must fill out if they do not have a visa and are planning on staying for up to 90 days.

The following question would be added to both the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (Esta) and I-94W forms: “Please enter information associated with your online presence—Provider/Platform—Social media identifier.”

The information will be optional, for now, but the proposed change published by the US Federal Register states that “collecting social media data will enhance the existing investigative process and provide Department of Homeland Security (DHS) greater clarity and visibility to possible nefarious activity and connections by providing an additional tool set which analysts and investigators may use to better analyze and investigate the case.”

The proposal is currently under consultation, with US government taking comments until 22 August.

The change forms part of the plan by the US DHS to scrutinise social media activity of visa applicants and those wishing to enter the country, following the San Bernardino killings in California, in which social media profiles formed part of the investigations along with an iPhone 5C.

Current DHS pilot programmes are being kept under wraps but are said to scan a limited amount of social media posts.

The pilot programmes currently used by DHS do not sweep up all social media posts, though government officials have kept details of the programmes closely held, as they do not want to reveal the precise process they use to try and identify potential threats.

It’s unclear if or how the DHS would verify information written on a form before hitting border control, leaving the possibility of false information being put down, and while the information may be optional, it will likely be difficult to discern what is and isn’t required on the form.

The US government approves around 10m visa applications a year and had 77.5 million foreign visitors in 2015. Collecting social media accounts for all visitors could produce one of the largest government-controlled databases of its kind almost overnight.
