“The Circle,” based on the Dave Eggers novel, is as chilling as the most frightening horror movie — and yet the world depicted in the film is practically our world, just a tiny leap into the near future.
Directed by James Ponsoldt and adapted by Ponsoldt and Eggers, the movie tells the story of a young woman who goes to work at The Circle, a company that’s like a hellish cross among Facebook, Apple and Google.
Young Mae (Emma Watson) is thrilled to be welcomed onto the Circle campus. Everyone is so cool. Everyone is so friendly. And everything is so weird.
The place is run by its two founders, who, in an inspired bit of casting, are played by the inherently likable Tom Hanks and Patton Oswalt. What harm could those guys do?
At least 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies are now equipped with a radar device that allows them to detect human movement through the walls of houses.
The device known as Range-R operates as a highly sensitive Doppler motion detector, according to its official website.
It can detect human movement from a distance of up to 50 feet, the USA Today reports.
The device beams radar waves through a wall and calculates the distance of the target by analyzing the reflected waves, according to manufacturer L-3 Communications.
The device has a 160-degree conical field of view and can detect movements as slight as human breathing.
It works through brick as well as concrete, but cannot penetrate metal, according to the Inquisitr.
Use of the technology raises both legal and privacy issues and a 2001 U.S. Supreme Court ruling barred authorities from using high-tech sensors to scan inside someone’s home without first obtaining a search warrant.
” I should apologize to the American people. It’s (the NSA) violated everyone’s rights. It can be used to eavesdrop on the whole world.”
“FBI (and NSA) wants to know everything about you, and you’re not supposed to know anything about them.”
“The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control”
Are you scared about Donald Trump having the NSA capabilities and powers in his hands?
“I look at it in this way: he is doing exactly as he said he would do in the campaign. During the campaign he said he would abide by the Constitution of the United States, now if he does that, he has to stop these programs, because they are unconstitutional, obviously. On the other hand, if he adopts this process, he is going to have the same powers as Obama had. That kind of power should not exist in any kind of government, because it really creates a totalitarian state. It’s like Stasi on super-steroids; instead of having folders with papers on everybody, they have everything that you do stored electronically, so it is a much more complete, up-to-date and mineable set of information and they can manipulate it, and do anything they want to you. That is the problem with it: no government should have it”. (read full interview)
“I can’t be controlled! I cannot be controlled! There are no interests here, but what I see as the world events, period! That is the truth of the situation.”
” I have remained completely independent from all of them. All of them! I am not influenced by any of them. I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google, or Bing, or Yahoo, or any of these others. It’s always been that way. Now, if you think of that set up, how rare that is….”
“Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Excuse me. Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Where is the cover-up on this? So many issues that are suppressed on a daily basis. So, that’s what I try to do every morning.”
“Well, I don’t know, because this is another thing. The measurements that we have, this is another bogus thing. Yesterday they released on the A.P.A Wire, Twitter followers. Hillary is the queen of the Twitters with 4.9 million. They don’t say how many are fake. They don’t know how many there are.”
“Well, the A.P. did not do that, Alex. So, this whole thing, this whole socials, these socials. You know, Beats One Music, which I’m obsessed with, which has been launched on Apple, uhh, which is probably one of the best things they’ve done since Steve Jobs died. One radio station. Interesting. They don’t know how many listeners they have. I heard some streams, they were down to five thousand an hour. This whole social media stuff is bogus. Facebook, we have two billions users? This is garbage! This is designed to demoralize the individual. I’ll never have two billion followers! This Internet is what you make of it.”
“…you’ve gotta be the greatest you can be now. Now. Before this country is so completely altered and we’re left with Hillary’s brain, in the Oval Office, in a jar. Because that’s what we’re getting. She’s old and she’s sick! She’s not a contender! They’re making her a contender with these propped-up Saturday Night Live things! It’s like a head on a stick! And, then on the Today Show with gun three. A head on a stick! She is not a viable, vibrant leader for this country of three hundred, including the illegals, three hundred and eighty million Americans! So, the media is trying to put us to sleep. You’re not letting ’em, Alex…”
“I’m just warning this country that, yes, don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No. You’re Not. You’re a pawn in their scheme.”
(commenting on political elite hypocrites calling for a repeal of the second amendment) “Well, because they’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about it. I challenge Hillary; take away your Secret Service. Take it away now! Take away your Secret Service! Dismiss them! Have no security around you. Have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you! I dare you! Obama, same thing. Drop your guns, Obama! Take your Secret Service away, Obama. Take it all away! Leave the White House unguarded, Obama. Let everybody know there’s no guns on the White House grounds, Obama. You know what would happen in 30 seconds? Both of those people would no longer be on planet Earth. So, they’re asking us to drop our guns, and to drop our security measures or…Or what!? So, this thing is very real, and I don’t see how it’s being taken seriously, except for the sick voter. You can’t underestimate the sickness of the American people right now. They’re really sick. And, that’s, I’m more angry at the sick Americans than I am at Obama or Hillary. I’m really angry at the sick Americans.”
“I plan on turning over the results of this investigation, this month, to the Federal government and Congress. In hope that Congress, number one, will pass a law that Presidents should be vetted. Common sense. I think what’s happened in the last eight years will prove why we need it.
Maybe, some members of Congress will hold some hearings, open to the public, regarding this matter. If you can hold hearings on under inflated footballs, why can’t you hold one on this? Just look at it.”
1,700-Year-Old Dead Sea Scroll ‘Virtually Unwrapped,’ Revealing Text By Laura Geggel
“The En-Gedi scroll, a text that includes part of the Book of Leviticus in the Hebrew Bible that was ravaged by fire about 1,400 years ago, is now readable, thanks to a complex digital analysis called “virtual unwrapping.”
Rather than physically unfurl the scroll, which would have destroyed the crumbling artifact, experts digitally scanned the document, and then virtually flattened the scanned results, allowing scholars to read its ancient text.”
“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” -Joseph Stalin
A real-time demo of the most devastating election theft mechanism yet found, with context and explanation. Demonstration uses a real voting system and real vote databases and takes place in seconds across multiple jurisdictions. Over 5000 subcontractors and middlemen have the access to perform this for any or all clients. It can give contract signing authority to whoever the user chooses. All political power can be converted to the hands of a few anonymous subcontractors. It’s a product. It’s scalable. It learns its environment and can adjust to any political environment, any demographic. It runs silently, invisibly, and can produce plausible results that really pass for the real thing.
Paid Seat Fillers at the Democratic National Convention
The Democratic convention is a show. The show needed to look like a full room of happy unified Democrats.
How do you do that?
Step 1 – Get rid of the Bernie people
Step 2 – Fill the empty seats with paid seat fillers
Paid Seat Fillers were used to fill up empty seats left behind by Bernie Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention. A Craigslist ad was placed, looking for 700 people to be paid $50 a day, to fill empty seats.
