    "In the early days of chemtrails, barium was falling from the skies. All around us, life died from the top down. What force is bio-engineering the human race? How do we return to human in this robotic society? With A.I., gene splicing, smart dust, nanotechnology, cloning, and killer robots, can a heart-based consciousness release us from this Satanic Dystopia"?

    "How should we challenge hate-mongering in the age of social media"?



    Alex Jones, the First Amendment, and the Digital Public Square

    By Steve Coll

    "Alex Jones has drawn millions of people to his Infowars brand by promoting conspiracy theories and noxious bigotry; he monetizes his following by selling survivalist gear and dietary supplements such as the testosterone booster Alpha Power. (“Infowarriors and Patriots of the world know that it takes real vitality to push back in the fight against the globalist agenda.”) Like President Trump, Infowars has updated for the digital era the timeworn populist tactic of manufacturing controversy to attain influence. Last week, after Apple, Facebook, and Google removed some of Infowars’ content from their platforms, Jones attracted even more attention; he described himself as the victim of “a war on free speech.” He urged his fans to back him by buying more of his stuff. (Downloads of the Infowars app soared.)

    The action by the Silicon Valley companies was, in one respect, bold: congenitally reluctant to alienate any customer, they decided to absorb the predictable outcry from the far right. In another respect, however, their decisions were routine. Social-media platforms continually censor content that they judge to be offensive or illegal. Facebook employs or contracts with thousands of “moderators” in countries such as India, Ireland, and the Philippines. With the aid of algorithms, they review more than a million pieces of flagged content daily. The moderators—censors, really—take down postings and may ban users if they detect a violation of their corporation’s rules. Such censorship is not unconstitutional. The First Amendment protects us against governmental intrusions; it does not (yet) protect speech on privately owned platforms. Still, the Internet and social media increasingly function as a “modern public square,” as Justice Anthony Kennedy put it in a 2017 Supreme Court opinion. This has created new dilemmas concerning free expression.

    The forums of Google and Facebook seem quasi-public in part because of their extraordinary reach. Facebook’s two hundred million monthly users in the U.S. constitute about three-fifths of the American population. Its algorithms and its censors’ judgments, though they inevitably affect commerce and political competition, are based upon rules that aren’t all published. When moderators at Facebook, Google, and Twitter review the appropriateness of posted content, they generally follow First Amendment-inspired principles, according to Kate Klonick, a legal scholar who analyzed the practices of the three companies in the Harvard Law Review last year. Some of the platforms’ standards are unsurprising, such as their bans on pornography and terrorist incitement. Other rules require moderators to block “hate speech,” an ambiguous term that, despite Facebook’s efforts at delineation, can be politicized. Still other censorship reflects sensitivities that arise from operating in dozens of countries, including some run by dictators. In 2012, Gawker obtained a Facebook contractor’s bizarrely eclectic list of topics requiring careful scrutiny. These included the poaching of endangered animals, Holocaust denial (a crime in Germany, among other countries), maps of Kurdistan, and the defamation of Atatürk.

    Despite this surveillance, extremist activists and propagandists managed to create huge numbers of fake accounts and distribute millions of pieces of made-up or incendiary content on Facebook during the 2016 election. (They also mounted propaganda campaigns on YouTube and Twitter.) Some abusers sought merely to make money; others tried to inflame and mislead voters. Russia’s state-directed interference was intended to help elect Donald Trump, according to American intelligence agencies. It took Facebook a year to discover and disclose the scale of the problem. That epic fail has altered the environment in which the company and its competitors now make decisions about content like that of Infowars.

    Facebook and YouTube have long positioned themselves as neutral platforms, akin to eBay, open to all who are willing to abide by community standards. They’ve resisted the argument that they are in fact publishers—that their human moderators and algorithms function like magazine editors who select stories and photos. But Facebook’s stance has seemed to shift recently. In April, its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, told Congress, “When people ask us whether we’re a media company or a publisher, what they’re getting at is: do we feel responsible for the content on our platform? I think the answer is clearly yes.” This is a be-careful-what-you-wish-for intersection; none of us will be happy if Silicon Valley engineers or offshore moderators start editing our ideas.

    Donald Trump and his far-right fellow-travellers have vigorously exploited the neutrality of social-media platforms. The Administration and its allies may occasionally bash Silicon Valley or pressure platform companies to remain open to alt-right channels such as Breitbart or Infowars. But Trump is unlikely to try to delegitimize the social-media giants in the way that he has sought to discredit professional journalism. The President forged his election victory on social platforms; it is by now difficult to imagine a Twitter-less Trump (and a Trump-less Twitter is an increasingly distant memory). Nor is Trump likely to endorse the tough legal steps taken recently in European countries such as Germany, where Facebook, Google, and other platforms risk fines of as much as fifty million euros if they don’t quickly remove prohibited content when notified about it.

    The First Amendment would likely preclude German-style regulation here, in any event; for better or worse, America is a nation forged from raucous speech. Yet it’s one thing to defend openness and another to tolerate malign interference in election campaigns. The challenge is to combat external propaganda and bot-farmed lies without allowing Facebook, Google, and the like to become even more powerful arbiters of news or public debate. The companies themselves must strike this balance. One way would be to do much more to affirmatively promote fact-based journalism. As for Alex Jones and his fevered legions, assuming they were subjected last week to the same rules that all other users of Apple, Google, and Facebook must comply with, they can now adapt or go elsewhere. Still, we should be wary of celebrating any instance of censorship, especially by opaque corporations. There are other ways to challenge hatemongers—at the voting booth, for example. Practices that marginalize the unconventional right will also marginalize the unconventional left. In these unsettled times, the country could use more new voices, not fewer. From its origins, the American experiment has shown that it is sometimes necessary to defend the rights of awful speakers, for the sake of principles that may help a free and diverse society renew itself." ♦️

    He Got Game: Spike Lee Scores Biggest Opening Weekend in 10 Years with “Klansman”

    "SATURDAY Spike Lee and Focus Features have good reason to celebrate today. “Blackkklansman,” Lee’s new, excellent film, is his biggest hit in 10 years.

    “KKKlansman” will make around $10 million for the weekend. Last night’s take was a very respectable $3.6 million in moderate release.

    My guess is that word of mouth will send more people than expected over the weekend. This is one of Spike’s best movies in his 32 year career. It’s the most focused and brilliantly realized, too.

    How black cop Ron Stallworth infiltrated the KKK in Colorado and made a monkey out of David Duke is a story that almost tells itself. The fact that Lee was smart enough to choose John David Washington, Laura Harring, Topher Grace and in particular Adam Driver to pull it off– wonderful.

    As I’ve written before, the movie positions itself about a quarter way through with a very subtle musical number, everyone singing “Too Late to Turn Back Now” by my old favorite R&B group Cornelius Bros. and Sister Rose. It’s a revelatory moment, one of those times when feel a movie come together.

    And then there’s that genius ending, where the modern catastrophe of Charlottesville 2017 is juxtaposed with the mid 70s and you have a profound, disturbing statement that is also uplifting in the sense of filmmaking.

    “Blackkklansman” wasn’t number one last night. That was the horror film, “The Meg,” a science fiction shark horror movie, with $16.5 million– utterly disposable summer fun. What the heck. “Mission Impossible” is still in the top 5 and will cross the $150 million mark this weekend. I saw it this week, finally, and it’s really terrific for what it is. The music makes the movie. But I was also so happy to see Michelle Monaghan" ...

    SUNDAY UPDATE< /strong> Spike’s weekend total is $10.7 million, a little higher than predicted. It’s deserved. Look for Adam Driver to be in the mix for Best Supporting Actor, and Spike in Best Picture, Director, screenplay."

    Giddy Up ...


    A horse was neglected by its owner. Now the horse is suing ...

    ESTACADA, Ore. - "Justice is an 8-year-old American quarter horse who used to be named Shadow. And when he was named Shadow, he suffered. At a veterinarian's exam last year, he was 300 pounds underweight, his black coat lice-ridden, his skin scabbed and his genitals so frostbitten that they might still require amputation.

    The horse had been left outside and underfed by his previous owner, who last summer pleaded guilty to criminal neglect. And now Justice, who today resides with other rescued equines on a quiet wooded farm within view of Oregon's Cascade mountains, is suing his former owner for negligence. In a lawsuit filed in his new name in a county court, the horse seeks at least $100,000 for veterinary care, as well as damages "for pain and suffering," to fund a trust that would stay with him no matter who is his caretaker.

    The complaint is the latest bid in a quixotic quest to get courts to recognize animals as plaintiffs, something supporters and critics alike say would be revolutionary. The few previous attempts - including a recent high-profile case over whether a monkey can own a copyright - have failed, with judges ruling in various ways that the nonhumans lacked legal standing to sue. But Justice's case, the animal rights lawyers behind it contend, is built on court decisions and statutes that give it a stronger chance, particularly in a state with some of the nation's most progressive animal protection laws.

    "There have been a lot of efforts to try to get animals not only to be protected but to have the right to go to court when their rights are violated," said Matthew Liebman, director of litigation at the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which filed the suit in Justice's name. Those "haven't found the right key to the courthouse door. And we're hopeful that this is the key."

    These efforts have been made amid broad growth in legal protections and advocacy for animals. Three decades ago, few law schools offered courses in animal law; now, more than 150 do, and some states have created animal law prosecutorial units. All 50 states have enacted felony penalties for animal abuse. Connecticut last year became the first state to allow courts to appoint lawyers or law students as advocates in animal cruelty cases, in part because overburdened prosecutors were dismissing a majority of such cases.

    These developments count as progress, animal rights lawyers say, in persuading lawmakers and courts to expand the traditional legal view of animals - as property - to reflect their role in a society in which dog-sitting is big business and divorces can involve cat custody battles.

    "Our legislature acknowledged that people care a lot about animals, and that's something that's evolving and increasing," said Jessica Rubin, a University of Connecticut law professor who serves as an advocate in that state's cruelty cases. "The law, hopefully, is catching up to where our morals are."

    But expanding the protections for animals is quite different from granting them legal standing, which courts have not been willing to do. In 2004, a federal appeals court shot down a suit in the name of the world's cetaceans, in which President George W. Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were sued over the U.S. Navy's use of sonar. In 2012, a U.S. District Court dismissed a suit filed on behalf of five SeaWorld orcas, which argued that their captivity was a violation of the 13th Amendment's prohibition on slavery. This spring, a federal appeals court ruled that a crested macaque that took its own photo could not sue for copyright protection, saying "this monkey - and all animals, since they are not human - lacks statutory standing under the Copyright Act."

    In New York courts, a group called the Nonhuman Rights Project has for several years sought writs of habeas corpus for captive chimpanzees, arguing that they are "legal persons" - a term that can apply to corporations and ships - and have a right to freedom. While judges have occasionally praised the effort, they have ultimately rejected it, saying chimpanzees cannot bear the duties and responsibilities required of legal persons.

    Against that backdrop, Liebman says Justice's case is "more reasonable" than the others. It does not involve the Constitution or historically weighted concepts such as slavery or a writ of habeas corpus. It's not so, well, silly-sounding as copyright for a monkey.

    Instead, he and colleagues say, it is a logical next step. Their argument goes like this: While some state cruelty laws were written to protect animal owners or public morals, Oregon's anti-cruelty law makes plain it is intended to protect animals, which it calls "sentient beings." What's more, state courts have ruled that animals can be considered individual victims. And because victims have the right to sue their abusers, the lawsuit says, Justice should be able to sue his former owner.

    Justice, of course, has no idea he is suing. Sarah Hanneken, an Animal Legal Defense Fund attorney in Portland, says that Justice's ignorance of the lawsuit is irrelevant.

    "This whole idea of somebody who has been injured by the acts of another and not being able to speak for themselves in court, so having an adult human do it for them, this is not new," Hanneken said. "Children are allowed to bring lawsuits, because we recognize that children have interests that laws protect."

    According to court filings, Justice's former owner, Gwendolyn Vercher, surrendered the horse to a rescue organization in March 2017 at the urging of a neighbor in Cornelius, west of Portland. In a letter to law enforcement, an equine veterinarian who examined the horse at the time said he was "severely emaciated," lethargic and weak. That poor condition probably contributed to a lasting problem - the animal's penis had prolapsed, and his inability to retract it led to frostbite, trauma and infection.

    "When I got him, he was a lot worse than I anticipated," said Kim Mosiman, executive director of Sound Equine Options, which takes in and finds homes for about 100 horses each year.

    Justice, whom Mosiman fondly describes as "like a grumpy old man," has gained weight and become more social. On a sun-soaked afternoon at the dusty farm in Estacada, he nibbled grass alongside a retired racehorse named Flick and used his nose to nudge the notebook of a visiting reporter. But the lawsuit says his penis may require partial amputation and that his medical conditions will demand long-term care.

    "I'm trying to find someone who wants to adopt him," Mosiman said. "But if they find out they're going to have to be financially responsible for him, he's never going anywhere."

    Some animal law experts warn that Justice's lawsuit is extreme, even dangerous. Richard Cupp, a Pepperdine University law professor who has been critical of the chimpanzee personhood cases, said he thinks the horse case has even more radical implications.

    Allowing Justice to sue could mean any animal protected under Oregon's anti-cruelty statute - a class that includes thousands of pets, zoo animals and even wildlife - could do the same, he said. (Livestock, lab animals, hunting targets, rodeo animals and invertebrates are exempted.) If this approach were adopted elsewhere, Cupp said, a stampede of animal litigation could overrun courts.

    "Any case that could lead to billions of animals having the potential to file lawsuits is a shocker in the biggest way," Cupp said. "Once you say a horse or dog or cat can personally sue over being abused, it's not too big a jump to say, 'Well, we're kind of establishing that they're legal persons with that. And legal persons can't be eaten.' "

    Cupp emphasized that he supports Oregon's progressive animal cruelty laws and rulings. But legislation is a more reasonable way of expanding animal protections, he said. Justice's case, for example, could be addressed through a law requiring an abuser to cover an animal's future care. "This would not be bad for society," Cupp said. "We do need to evolve. We're not doing enough to protect animals."

    Cupp points to a Connecticut law as one that maintains an important distinction between animals and people. It focuses on "the interests of justice," not the animals' interests.

    Geordie Duckler, a Portland animal law attorney who represents Vercher, said he views the horse lawsuit as a publicity stunt, one he does not expect Oregon courts to take very seriously.

    "There's a massive chasm between saying a thing is a victim and saying now it must have rights, and the rights are apparently the full panoply of rights, and must include a right to sue," Duckler said. "There's no such thing as a right in a vacuum. . . . As soon as you have animal rights, then you'd better have animal jails and prosecutions against animals."

    The slippery-slope arguments are familiar to Mosiman, who calls her group an animal welfare, not animal rights, organization. When she considered Justice's long-term needs, though, she had no qualms about signing him up as a plaintiff, she said.

    "It was pretty clear-cut: If he wasn't starved, this wouldn't have happened," Mosiman said as Justice languidly scratched his neck and head against a towering pine tree. "It's about him."

    So we’ve asked ourselves how to respond to our own supporters urging us to take up Peterson and his work.  The answer has come from looking more closely at how he acquired his current perspective.  His academic training placed an emphasis on the mythic archetypes, the deepest structures of human thought in ancient times" ...

    Whitley Strieber | The Visitors, The Afterlife, & Anne

    TheHighersideChats


    Published on Aug 16, 2018

    Alright Higherside Chatters, if you dig into the paranormal at all, it doesn't take long to realize that thousands of people have had encounters or experiences with strange humanoid creatures that just don't get treated very seriously in mainstream culture, as if we have some sort of collective denial for what is surely, a crucial element of our reality. And it seems like a perfect storm of carefully crafted social engineering, ego-ic arrogance, and the “sheer terror of true acceptance” have set back our study of this strangeness and our human terrarium to troubling degrees. And as if little blue/green/grey biological beings coming in the night weren't enough, a study of these cases finds a few other odd commonalities among experiencers that we would be wise to consider: invasive medical and sexual procedures, teleportation to foreign crafts, multi-generational visitation, missing time, prophetic dreams, implants, shape shifting, memory distortion, meditative states, military involvement, telepathic messages that “it's all going to be okay”, and maybe even a connection to the state of being we call “Death.”

    Well one of the most famous cases of being taken by “the vistors” comes from today's guest Whitley Strieber, detailed in his 1987 New York Times Best Seller - Communion. A name and title than I'm sure most of us here are well familiar with. On top of writing many highly acclaimed fiction books and hosting the popular Dreamland podcast, Whitley has also followed up on the Communion saga regularly with a string of books that outline each new level of understanding with titles like Transformation, Breakthrough:The Next Steps, The Secret School, The Communion Letters, Solving the Communion Enigma, and more. And after decades of defending himself against the big machine, taking lie detector tests and brain scans, facing the ridicule of the uninitiated, and constantly having to beat back the persistent narrative that these visitors are just aliens from outer space....He has emerged with a new forward thinking perspective, in his latest book The Afterlife Revolution- which was co-written by his late wife Ann from across the river Styx.

    See, Anne passed away in 2015, but due to the strengthening of her soul in life, her determination to investigate the big questions, and with the foundation of a protocol established years prior between Whitley and herself – she has provided great insight about the After Death Experience and the curious Visitors Whitley and thousands of others have experienced- and the result is an emotional and informative ride though a unique book co-written between both sides of the veil. It's a true honor and a pleasure to have him here today, investigating this weird world longer than I've been alive: A gifted child of the secret school, the little green men guru, the only THC guest to have been played by Christopher Walken in a major motion picture, and now ambassador of the Afterlife- Whitley Strieber

    "Shameful – a leader of an Amazon tribe who've been hailed for their work as the 'Guardians of the Amazon" has been killed, his body dumped by a river. Some say up to 80 members of the tribe have been killed since 2000" ...



    Jorginho Guajajara

    Published 16 August 2018

    Brazilian Indigenous Leader, Guardian of the Amazon Murdered

    "The leader of the Indigenous Guajajara people in the Brazilian Amazon is believed to have been murdered by illegal loggers.

    Brazilian environmental and rights organizations announced Wednesday that Indigenous leader Jorginho Guajajara was murdered in the State of Maranhao in the Brazilian Amazon. They suspect Jorginho was killed by illegal loggers who operate in the territory of the Guajajara people, renown for their work as Guardians of the Amazon.

    The leader’s body was found last Sunday next to a stream that surrounded the Indigenous Reserve Arariboia. His body bore marks of violence to his neck and chest. Survival International, an NGO that advocates for the rights of Indigenous peoples around the globe, announced the news via Twitter and published a piece detailing the Guajajara’s struggle with “an aggressive, powerful and armed logging mafia with close ties to local and national politicians.”



    Sonia Guajajara, Indigenous leader and vice-presidential candidate for the Socialism and Liberty Party confirmed Jorginho’s murder was part of “a sequence of deaths and murders in the logging dispute.”

    According to data from the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), 70 percent of the Maranhao state has been deforested. In Arariboia alone, almost 25 hectares have been affected.

    The Guardians of the Amazon, or Guardioes da Floresta, is a group of men of the Guajajara people who decided to fight against illegal loggers themselves in the face of government inaction. They patrol their territory in search of outside threats, and when they find loggers or hunters, they destroy their equipment and detain the perpetrators to deliver them to the police later.

    The group also aims to protect the uncontacted Awa Guaja people who live in the region.

    Due to their activities to protect their lives and their habitat, they have been targeted by illegal loggers. Jorginho is one of around 80 members of his tribe who have been murdered for defending nature.

    Regional authorities have made no statements related to the murder so far.

    Survival International stressed that “brutal cuts in government funding to its Indigenous affairs department FUNAI and tribal land protection mean the dangers are now even greater, as the area is not properly monitored or defended by the authorities.

    What is it doing up there ... Question


    Mysterious X-37B Military Space Plane Nears 1 Year in Orbit

    "The U.S. Air Force's X-37B miniature space plane has winged past 340 days in orbit performing secretive duties during the program's fifth flight.

    The robotic craft's latest mission, known as Orbital Test Vehicle-5 (OTV-5), kicked off on Sept. 7, 2017, with a launch atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida.

    As usual, Air Force officials have revealed few details about OTV-5. But we do know that one payload flying aboard the X-37B this time around is the Advanced Structurally Embedded Thermal Spreader, or ASETS-11. Developed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, this cargo is testing experimental electronics and oscillating heat pipes for long durations in the space environment.

    The classified X-37B program "fleet" consists of two known reusable vehicles, both of which were built by Boeing. Looking like a miniature version of NASA's now-retired space shuttle orbiter, the military space plane is 29 feet (8.8 meters) long and 9.6 feet (2.9 m) tall, with a wingspan of nearly 15 feet (4.6 m).

    The X-37B has a payload bay about the size of a pickup-truck bed, which can be outfitted with a robotic arm. The space plane has a launch weight of 11,000 lbs. (4,990 kilograms) and is powered on orbit by gallium-arsenide solar cells with lithium-ion batteries.

    Each X-37B mission has set a new flight-duration record for the program:

    OTV-1 began April 22, 2010, and concluded on Dec. 3, 2010, after 224 days in orbit.
    OTV-2 began March 5, 2011, and concluded on June 16, 2012, after 468 days on orbit.
    OTV-3 chalked up nearly 675 days in orbit before finally coming down on Oct. 17, 2014.
    OTV-4 conducted on-orbit experiments for 718 days during its mission, extending
    the total number of days spent in space for the OTV program to 2,085 days.

    How long OTV-5 will stay aloft is unknown. Whenever it comes down, the robotic vehicle is likely to land at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility, as the OTV-4 mission did back on May 7, 2017. That was a first for the program. All prior missions had ended with a tarmac touchdown at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    ed Molczan, a Toronto-based satellite analyst, told Inside Outer Space that OTV-5's initial orbit was about 220 miles (355 kilometers) high, inclined 54.5 degrees to the equator. "Its ground track nearly repeated every two days, after 31 revolutions," he said.

    On April 19, the space drone lowered its orbit by 24 miles (39 km), which caused its ground track to exactly repeat every five days, after 78 revolutions, Molczan said — a first for an OTV mission.

    "Repeating ground tracks are very common," Molczan added, "especially for spacecraft that observe the Earth. That said, I do not know why OTV has repeating ground tracks."

    Does the X-37B program fit into the Trump administration's call for a Space Force?

    "Ironically, the X-37B is exactly the type of program — toward giving the U.S. flexibility of operations in space — that seems to be prompting the current push for a Space Force, yet are already underway," said Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor in the National Security Affairs Department at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.

    Gio, I'm somewhat interested in Victorian-England in the Context of 19th Century Europe, but I don't wish to discuss this. My theories are too messy and volatile, but properly studying All of the Above might have Everything to do with understanding the 20th (and even the 21st) centuries. In a similar manner, I've become somewhat interested in [1 Chronicles to Malachi], which is sandwiched between [Genesis to 2 Kings] and [Matthew to Revelation] but I don't wish to discuss this. My theories are too messy and volatile, but studying these three-groups side-by-side (in a stand-alone manner) without one-group interpreting the others, might have Everything to do with understanding the religious and political conflicts of at-least the past 3,000 years. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it (for now). This Jordan Maxwell video is highly-provocative, and I am NOT endorsing it.
