House Votes in Favor of Disastrous Copyright Bill

Senate Can Still Stop CASE Act

Electronic Frontier Foundation
(October 23, 2019)

The House of Representatives has just voted in favor of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act) by 410-6 (with 16 members not voting), moving forward a bill that Congress has had no hearingsand no debates on so far this session. That means that there has been no public consideration of the serious harm the bill could do to regular Internet users and their expression online.

The CASE Act creates a new body in the Copyright Office which will receive copyright complaints, notify the person being sued, and then decide if money is owed and how much. This new Copyright Claims Board will be able to fine people up to $30,000 per proceeding. Worse, if you get one of these notices (maybe an email, maybe a letter—the law actually does not specify) and accidentally ignore it, you’re on the hook for the money with a very limited ability to appeal. $30,000 could bankrupt or otherwise ruin the lives of many Americans.

Tulsi Gabbard Blasts Hillary Clinton as “Queen of the Warmongers”

Information Liberation
(October 18, 2019)

Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Rep Tulsi Gabbard slammed Hillary Clinton on Friday as the “queen of all warmongers” after the former secretary of state suggested Gabbard is an agent of the Russkies. 

From NBC News:

Hillary Clinton says she believes that the Russians have “got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”

In a recent interview, Clinton didn’t mention Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii by name, but said she believes one candidate is “the favorite of the Russians.” Asked if the former secretary of state was referring to Gabbard, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said, “If the nesting doll fits…”

Cringe. 

Tulsi had a great response: 

Tulsi Gabbard@TulsiGabbard

Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a …297K4:20 PM – Oct 18, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy138K people are talking about this

Popping Balloons Sparked Panic at Boca Mall (Video)

(October 17, 2019)

Fears of an armed gunman led Town Center at Boca Raton to shut down Sunday afternoon. One person was injured in the rush to leave the mall.

BOCA RATON – Panic, confusion and the popping of not one balloon but two marked the first moments of what was thought to be an active gunman event at Town Center at Boca Raton on Sunday, according to 911 audio and video recordings city police released Thursday.

“I think there’s a shooting,” one woman calling from the Neiman Marcus store, just off the mall food court from where the booming sounds emanated, told city dispatchers.

“We’re in Boca Town Center mall, we don’t know what’s going on. . . . People are just running,” reported another woman calling from the Grand Lux Cafe, near an entrance on Town Center’s north side.

Colleges Are Tracking Applicants’ Browser History, According to New Report

(October 15, 2019)

If you’re in the process of applying for college, be warned that it isn’t just your grades and extracurricular activities that are being reviewed by schools. According to a report from the Washington Post, at least 44 public and private universities across the United States have started to work with third-party companies to collect and track data on prospective students, including web browsing activity and financial history. These practices could lead to schools favoring students based on financial incentives for the school, placing students from low-income backgrounds at a disadvantage.

According to the Post, the tracking process begins as soon as a student first directs their browser to a school’s website. Many schools have started to implement tracking software on their sites that are able to identify a person based on other online activity. This type of software, often called a cookie, is typically associated with online advertising. When you visit a site searching for boots, for instance, and all of a sudden start seeing advertisements for boots on other sites, it’s because of tracking cookies. In the case of these schools, those cookies are used to gauge a person’s interest in the university. It tracks their activity, on site and off, and can use data about the person’s location and interests to determine who the student is. That information is given to the admissions office to pair with existing data about the student, including their name, contact information, and additional details about their life like when they are graduating and what areas of the school they showed interest in based on activity on the site, and where the student lives.

Boca Raton Police defend Mall Shoppers From ‘Loud Noise’

Authorities issue conflicting reports in wake of mass hysteria; Unusual Tweeted photo

BOCA POLICE (CBSMiami) – The Boca Police Department says a person hurt at Town Center Mall was not shot, and suffered a trauma wound, despite earlier reports that stated there was an active shooter at the mall.

Boca PD corrected an earlier tweet around 6:00 p.m. Sunday which said one person with a gunshot wound was transported to Delray Medical Center.

The corrected tweet says the person may have a “POSSIBLE gunshot wound,” and the Chief of Police told CBS4’s Amber Diaz that victim was not shot.

US School Districts Now Monitoring Students’ Free Speech / Social Media Activity

Via MassPrivateI
October 1, 2019

Today, I give you a frightening story about free speech censorship and watchlists just in time for the countdown to Halloween.

A recent article in The Tennessean reveals how the Williamson County School District (WCS) is monitoring students free speech and social media posts.

The WCS recently implemented a “threat surveillance program” called Gaggle, that is so invasive and frightening one would be hard pressed not to call it a “gag” program that limits students free speech.

When the WCS was asked to reveal specific details about what Gaggle and authorities are monitoring students speech for, they claimed they could not reveal any details “due to federal family protection laws.”


Public & private schools are joining the ranks of alphabet soup surveillance agencies like DHS, the FBI and the NSA claiming they cannot reveal surveillance details.

The Tennessean was able toshed some light on what Gaggle monitors by saying it, “operates using a mathematical algorithm to identify high risk words and phrases when students are logged into the district’s server.”

Gaggle’s video was a little more revealing, claiming that they monitor students social media posts 24/7 for things like:

  • profanity
  • insulting language
  • hate speech
  • provocative images
  • pornography 
  • drug use
  • alcohol use and much more

When school districts and private corporations start monitoring students for things like profanity and insulting language, we should all be worried because it will not end there.

Soon social media providers will monitor everyone.

Did Adam Schiff pull a Jussie Smollett and FABRICATE the existence of the whistleblower?

Mike Adams
Natural News

(October 3, 2019)

Earlier today, President Trump declared that he believes Rep. Adam Schiff wrote the so-called “whistleblower” complaint (see video below). But the official whistleblower complaint story is unraveling by the hour as new facts emerge, pointing to a far more shocking likelihood: That Adam Schiff may have fabricated the existence of the whistleblower himself, in effect projecting his own complaint onto a fictional persona that he is now going to question in a private, closed-door congressional session where he will essentially be questioning himself.

This scenario isn’t proven yet, but it’s looking more and more like Adam Schiff may have pulled a Jussie Smollett. Instead of tying a noose around his own neck and faking a hate crime, he may have fabricated an entire “whistleblower” persona and written the whistleblower complaint himself in a psychotic, desperate effort to try to destroy Trump before AG William Barr drops the mother of all bombshells about the Democrats’ involvement in a vast criminal conspiracy to try to overthrow the President of the United States of America.

Schiff knows that if Trump isn’t stopped, a long list of left-wing traitors will likely be prosecuted and jailed. That list may include Adam Schiff himself, who has been linked to Ukrainian arms dealers, and Joe Biden’s son who is now known to have received $3.4 million in “criminally obtained” laundered money, transferred to his business accounts as part of Joe Biden’s shakedown of international oligarchs and mafia organizations. Don’t forget, either, that Barack Obama laundered billions of dollars internationally in order to fund Iran’s nuclear weapons program, a clear act of criminal treason against the United States.
