Here are a few articles I found to be important through this week.
I don't have a Facebook profile. When I did it lasted about a year and I posted a bunch of articles about radical truths that undermine the lamestream media portrayal of reality. Also, I posted articles about how fucked FB is. They sell user data, use it to manipulate people and say they own all your content. The privacy features kept changing too undoing any efforts of users to maintain privacy. The straw that broke the camels back for me is a resetting of FB groups and I lost all my members for my old show Unstacking the Deck.
It just came out that in 2012 there were Facebook mind control experiments linked to DoD research on civil unrest. Apparently they manipulated posts viewed by about 700,000 users to better try and control people it seems. Twitter is another platform targeted for these studies "to identify individuals mobilized in a social contagion and when they become mobilized."
One of the interesting insights is that people got jealous and bitter about people having fun. So if your having a good time then people respond negatively. Just fueling the haters by updating your KGB-Book.
In other news Al-Qaeda has been displaced by ISIS as the most "terror"-fying threat in the so-called Middle East. ISIS just released a sort of stockholders report complete with some of the most violent infographics I have seen.
ISIS is the outcome from US-funded and trained for anti-Assad support. They now have robbed a bank for $400 million and are the most financially legit terrorist entity in the world. Many are ignorant of the fact that Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda was another result of US meddling. Here is an article on that in Veteran's Today "The CIA’s “Founding” of Al Qaeda Documented: The Muslim Terrorist Apparatus was Created by US Intelligence as a Geopolitical Weapon."
Meanwhile, the veterans used to fight bogus wars have been brought back to life by the VA that has been allowing its patients to die while in unreasonable waiting lists (see "VA 'Brought Patients Back to Life' to Disguise Wait List Deaths"). When all else fails just rig the statistics. Further corruption is chronicled in a new U.S. Senate report "Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime, Cover-Up and Coercion within the VA". Drug dealing, harassing the family of dead servicemen to deny VA responsibility, on the clock nurses union lobbying efforts for better conditions for them while they cannot serve vets properly and criminal activity like "drug dealing, theft, and even murder. A VA police chief even conspired to kidnap, rape and murder women and children." Incredible. Twenty billion dollars in waste has been identified and nearly a billion paid out for malpractice. I guess this is government efficiency depending on your vantage point.
Finally, in further bureaucratic failure, "Nebraska releases hundreds of inmates by mistake, now wants them back." 306 were accidentally released but most will not be pursued provided they do not break the law since their sentences would have been completed by now. Duh. 567 have received incorrect sentences on top of that since the correct formula to calculate sentences was not being followed. One man served thirty years and should have been released around fifteen. So I guess that guy is really "rehabilitated" and "corrected."
