The Military secretly tested chemicals on Americans

SAN FRANCISCO – Fifty-one years ago, Edward J. Nevin checked into a San Francisco hospital, complaining of chills, fever and general malaise. Three weeks later, the 75-year-old retired pipe fitter was dead, the victim of what doctors said was an infection of the bacterium Serratia marcescens.
Decades later, Mr. Nevin’s family learned what they believe was the cause of the infection, linked at the time to the hospitalizations of 10 other patients. In Senate subcommittee hearings in 1977, the U.S. Army revealed that weeks before Mr. Nevin sickened and died, the Army had staged a mock biological attack on San Francisco, secretly spraying the city with Serratia and other agents thought to be harmless.
The goal: to see what might happen in a real germ-warfare attack. The experiment, which involved blasting a bacterial fog over the entire 49-square-mile city from a Navy vessel offshore, was recorded with clinical nonchalance: "It was noted that a successful BW [biological warfare] attack on this area can be launched from the sea, and that effective dosages can be produced over relatively large areas," the Army wrote in its 1951 classified report on the experiment.
Now, with anthrax in the mail and fear mounting of further biological attacks, researchers are again looking back at the only other time this country faced the perils of germ warfare – albeit self-inflicted. In fact, much of what the Pentagon knows about the effects of bacterial attacks on cities came from those secret tests conducted on San Francisco and other American cities from the 1940s through the 1960s, experts say.
"We learned a lot about how vulnerable we are to biological attack from those tests," says Leonard Cole, adjunct professor of political science at Rutgers University in New Jersey and author of several books on bioterrorism. "I’m sure that’s one reason crop dusters were grounded after Sept. 11: The military knows how easy it is to disperse organisms that can affect people over huge areas."
In other tests in the 1950s, Army researchers dispersed Serratia on Panama City, Fla., and Key West, Fla., with no known illnesses resulting. They also released fluorescent compounds over Minnesota and other Midwestern states to see how far they would spread in the atmosphere. The particles of zinc-cadmium-sulfide – now a known cancer-causing agent – were detected more than 1,000 miles away in New York state, the Army told the Senate hearings, though no illnesses were ever attributed to them as a result.
Another bacterium, Bacillus globigii, never shown to be harmful to people, was released in San Francisco, while still others were tested on unwitting residents in New York, Washington, D.C., and along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, among other places, according to Army reports released during the 1977 hearings.
In New York, military researchers in 1966 spread Bacillus subtilis variant Niger, also believed to be harmless, in the subway system by dropping lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto tracks in stations in midtown Manhattan. The bacteria were carried for miles throughout the subway system, leading Army officials to conclude in a January 1968 report: "Similar covert attacks with a pathogenic [disease-causing] agent during peak traffic periods could be expected to expose large numbers of people to infection and subsequent illness or death."
The government admits...
For decades, Americans were told that Area 51 didn’t really exist and that the US government had no official interest in aliens or UFOs. Statements to the contrary, official-sounding people cautioned, were probably the musings of "conspiracy theorists".
The Pentagon has officially confirmed that there was, in fact, a US$22 million government program to collect and analyze “anomalous aerospace threats” – governmentspeak for UFOs.
The Race to Censor Internet
If we don’t fight now, conservatives will vanish from the internet
(Conservatives and anyone they don't like or anything they deem "hate speech" an unconstitutional label.)
How can you tell that internet censorship is really taking off? Easy. It’s becoming a business model.
Steven Brill is raising $6 million to launch News Guard. This new service will rate news sites on their trustworthiness from green to red. Forget politically unbiased algorithms. The ratings will be conducted by "qualified, accountable human beings" from teams of "40 to 60 journalists." Once upon a time, journalism meant original writing. Now it means deciding which original writing to censor.
"Can trust be monetized?" The Street’s article on News Guard asks. But it isn’t really trust that’s being monetized. It’s censorship. It’s doing the dirty work that Google and Facebook don’t want to do.
The Dems and their media allies have been pressuring Google and Facebook to do something about the "fake news" that they blame for Trump’s win. The big sites outsourced the censorship to media fact checkers. The message was, "Don’t blame us, now you’re in charge."
And The Nation That 'Cannot Live Without The Internet' The Most Is...
Have you ever thought about what life would be like without the internet?
Given the volume of time people spend immersed in their smartphones, iPads and laptops, an unconnected life is pretty hard to imagine these days. For the majority of millennials, the time before the world wide web is now nothing more than a distant memory, a memory that's been eviscerated by the ubiquity and life-changing impact of connected technology.
Interestingly, Statista's Niall McCarthy notes that it isn't just millennials who are losing touch with a world without smartphones, emails and social media.
Research from Ipsos has found that society in general just can't live without the internet.
18,180 people were surveyed across 23 countries, with more than two thirds of them saying they cannot imagine a life that isn’t prefixed by www dot.
While 73 percent of Americans said they cannot imagine an unnconnected life, the highest share was recorded in India at 82 percent.
Free Speech Social Network ‘Gab’ Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google
Gab, the free speech social network, has filed a lawsuit against Google after they were suspended without warning from Google’s Play Store last month.
The social network, which boasts itself as a platform for everyone and recently raised over $1 million in public investment, was suddenly suspended and removed from Google Play for “hate speech,” despite the fact that it had been available on the platform for several months.
“Free speech social media site Gab AI, Inc. filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Google for violations of the Clayton Act and Sherman Act,” declared the company in a blog post, Friday. “The lawsuit stems from Google removing Gab from its Google Play Android app store on spurious grounds of ‘hate speech’ arising from posts by users.”
“Google did not accuse Gab of hate speech, but used third party content as a pretext to justify its own business ends,” they continued. “Gab, a startup, aims to bring ‘folks together of all races, religions, and creeds who share in the common ideals of Western values, individual liberty and the free exchange and flow of information.'”
Gab’s attorney, Marc Randazza, claimed in a statement that Google’s actions against Gab were “a straightforward violation of the antitrust laws.”
“Google Play and Android have monopoly power in the app store market, and Google’s apps YouTube and Google+ compete directly against Gab,” claimed Randazza. “Google’s intimate partnership with Twitter, which also competes against Gab, makes Google’s control of all Android apps available through the Play Store a serious restraint of trade issue.”
“Regardless of Google’s pretextual justification for removing Gab, the effect is that they used their monopoly power in the app store to block an upstart competitor it in the social media app market,” he added. “To the detriment of millions of consumers who value free speech.”
Gab CEO Andrew Torba also released a statement on the lawsuit, calling Google “the biggest threat to the free flow of information.”
“Gab started to fight against the big tech companies in the marketplace, and their monopolistic conduct has forced us to bring the fight to the courtroom,” Torba declared. “We are going to be outspent and outgunned, but we believe we have the law — and basic principles of fairness — on our side.”
“This may be a David and Goliath fight,” he concluded. “But remember: David won.”
In an email to Breitbart Tech, Gab COO and Global Affairs Director, Utsav Sanduja, confirmed, “Gab used the resources donated to us by the community to help us in our fight against corporate injustice and thought-censorship.”
After Breitbart Tech asked Sanduja whether Gab planned to file similar lawsuits against Apple, who also repeatedly banned the social network from their store, or other major technology companies, he replied, “Gab is exploring all options on the table.”
Classic Communist tactic: Forget or rewrite history
On Sept. 13, 1814, just weeks after they burned the U.S. Capitol, British forces attacked Baltimore, Maryland – the third largest city in America.
Britain had the largest global empire in world history, controlling 13 million square miles – almost a quarter of the Earth’s land – and nearly half billion people – one-fifth of the world’s population at that time. Out of nearly 200 countries in the world, only 22 were never controlled or invaded by Britain.
As the War of 1812 progressed, British soldiers marched toward Baltimore. On their way, they captured an elderly physician of Upper Marlboro, Dr. William Beanes. The town feared Dr. Beanes would be hanged, so they asked attorney Francis Scott Key to sail with Colonel John Skinner under a flag of truce to the British flagship Tonnant in order to arrange a prisoner exchange.
Concerned their plans of attacking Baltimore would be discovered, the British placed Francis Scott Key and Colonel Skinner under armed guard aboard the H.M.S. Surprise. They were transferred to a sloop where they watched 19 British ships fire continuously for 25 hours over 1,800 cannon balls, rockets and mortar shells at the earthen Fort McHenry.
Fort McHenry was named for Secretary of War James McHenry, who had signed the Declaration of Independence. His son, John McHenry, fought in the battle.

Techno-liberals don’t realize their Utopian future is actually a totalitarian nightmare
Ida Auken is a thirty-something year old member of the Danish parliament. She created a bit of a stir with an article she penned recently for the World Economic Forum (WEF) that describes her ideal society and city in the year 2030. It’s a place, Auken writes, “where you own nothing and you have no privacy.” Need to cook? Kitchen equipment is “delivered within moments.” No cars are allowed.
Transportation is free and available with driverless machines. There is no rent in the city, because your space is used by others when you’re not there. Robots and AI do most of the work, so you can be more creative and socialize. Ms. Auken has one note of caution in her utopian missive:
“I have no real privacy. No where I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me.”
Poor Ida. Maybe Denmark doesn’t have a version of the NSA, yet. She also sounds concerned for those poor misfits who haven’t yet been rounded up from their disconnected countryside shacks. They just “got lost on the way.” Yes, these are the anti-technology luddites who are still holding out for freedom, driving and eating real food. Ms. Auken gives no timetable as to their eventual adaptation, or demise.
Wakingtimes.com states that “we are closer to the global elite’s vision of the future than ever before.” The technocrats have been busy for years getting their ducks in a row. It’s essential that the public buy the man-made global warming myth, because the “sustainable development” meme is a lynch pin of their control mechanism. Here’s a video, circa 2012, created by global think tank Forum for the Future, which gets lots of money to theorize and monetize what these future global cities will look like and what businesses must do to comply.
The money, technology and media propaganda generated by the high priests of man made global warming marches on. But the technocrats who promote and plan and build these systems don’t have a clue that they are building their own prison. Have any of them read the 17 goals from the UN? The first two are no poverty and zero hunger. Take a moment to ponder how that has played out in history.
Let’s hope Trump‘s EPA nominee, Oklahoma’s Attorney General Scott Pruitt, will be confirmed as head of the EPA, so he can throw a monkey wrench into the globalist plans.
YouTube Will Censor Non-Rulebreaking Content, Manipulate Search Results, And Work With ADL
Content creators on YouTube who follow all of the site’s rules may still face censorship by the platform, under new plans announced by Google.
According to a post on YouTube’s official blog, videos will now be subject to the rule of the mob. If enough users flag a video as "hate speech" or "violent extremism," YouTube may impose restrictions on the content even if it breaks none of the platform’s rules.
We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.
