LEAKED! Twitter Employees Paid to Spy On You and Profile You, Including Your Sexual Fetishes! Reader 01/15/2018 (Mon) 16:30:46 Id: 00900b [Preview] No. 5500 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Clay Haynes: “There’s teams dedicated to it… at least, three or four hundred people… they’re paid to look at d*ck pics.”

Pranay Singh, Twitter Engineer, Says “All your sex messages… d*ck pics… like, all the girls you’ve been f*cking around with, they’re are on my server now…”

“Everything you send is stored on my server… You can’t [delete it], it’s already on my server.”

Claims Twitter Stores Your Private Data to Sell to Advertisers, “They’ll make a virtual profile about you”

“You’re paying for the right to use our website with your data basically.”

“You leak way more information than you think… Like, if you go to Twitter for the first time, we have information about you.”

How Would You Protect People If This Power Fell Into the Wrong Hands? “You don’t,” Says Former Twitter Engineer Conrado Miranda, “There is no way.”

Project Veritas has released undercover footage of Twitter Engineers and employees admitting that Twitter employees view all of your private messages on their servers and analyze it to create a “virtual profile” of you which they sell to advertisers.

The footage features four current Twitter software engineers–Conrado Miranda, Clay Haynes, Pranay Singh, and Mihai Alexandru Florea.

Haynes, who was featured in part one of the Twitter exposé, admitted in a January 6, 2018 meeting that Twitter has hired hundreds employees with the express purpose of looking at these “d*ck pics,” stating:

“There’s teams dedicated to it. I mean, we’re talking, we’re talking three or four… at least, three or four hundred people… Yes, they’re paid to look at d*ck pics.”

Haynes continues to elaborate that even he himself has seen these “d*ck pics”

“I’ve seen way more penises than I’ve ever wanted to see in my life.”

“That’s, yeah… You know, actually… This sounds horrible, but I’m actually glad and fortunate it’s just dicks, it’s just blow job pictures, it’s just that type of stuff.”

Pranay Singh, a Direct Messaging Engineer for Twitter corroborated Haynes claims in a meeting with a Project Veritas journalist on January 5, 2018:

“Everything you send is stored on my server… So all your sex messages and you, like, d*ck pics are on my server now…”

Clay Haynes also expressed his discomfort for Twitter’s policy in a December 29, 2017 meeting:

“It is a creepy Big Brother. It’s like a level… I don’t want to say it freaks me out, but it disturbs me.”

When Haynes was asked if this type of private information could leak from Twitter, he had this to say:

“Oh yeah, and it’s a genie out of the bottle kind of thing after that point. You know? Sure, I can fire them. Heck, I could probably even sue them, in some cases. But, the genie’s already out of the bottle. Like, how do actually recoup costs… you can’t calculate the cost or the damage of that.”

“Twitter is aggressively harvesting your personal information and tracking your every movement, selling your virtual dossier to the highest bidder ” says Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe. “Even more alarming is that these Twitter employees don’t seem to think that they are the ‘biggest brother’ out there… We have more to come – stay tuned.”


How Blockchain Will Bring Transparency Back To Real Estate Reader 01/15/2018 (Mon) 16:12:52 Id: 9cc4a4 [Preview] No. 5499 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It was the late 1990s when the real estate industry first started on its virtual path and began introducing property to a greater audience. The internet transformed the property business, from listing a home to researching real estate-specific topics like suburb profiles, agents, agencies and brokers. Now, Blockchain has presented a new frontier for revolutionizing the industry.

By design, Blockchain is immutable, secure and transparent. In other words, it cannot be stolen, duplicated or deceived. As such, it can streamline resource-intensive procedures and provide transparency — particularly in industries like real estate — while delivering efficient and trusted outcomes like rewarding consumers for their attention.

Real estate utilizes many unique and complicated processes. In its simplest form, the process of listing a property for sale includes: finding the right agent; valuation, appraisal and market estimation of the property; and the exchange of title deeds, among others. For each of these, the Blockchain can deliver a better alternative to traditional operations.

Most technology advancements since the internet's inception have been socially focused. Consumers are part of the overall business marketing solution — as seen with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others — which offers clear progress toward an open and transparent environment. However, beyond social media and amid exponential technological growth, a new movement to reward consumer involvement is underway: the Attention Economy.

The Attention Economy presents the unique idea that a person’s attention has a net value. It is a term that describes the commoditization of consumers’ attention, where users are rewarded for how long they remain invested in a product or service as well as for the extent of their contribution.

Interestingly, it only works in transparent environments. Blockchain is a technology that underpins this transparency and reward solution. And in the Blockchain world, the list of transparency improvements is endless.

In its simplest form, a Blockchain-driven ecosystem would empower the consumer to find a reliable and qualified agent or broker. Searching for a real estate agent would also provide the prospective seller a list of qualified agents as well as their relevant certifications and reviews.

Blockchain will bring positive changes to the future of real estate, and being part of the change is the most important thing companies can do now to ensure long-term success. Should the industry not willingly adapt to this new technology, it may just be forced to.

A New 'Wikileaks for Religion' Publishes Its First Trove of Documents Exposing Pedophilia Reader 01/15/2018 (Mon) 15:26:40 Id: 93d95d [Preview] No. 5494 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
FaithLeaks, a young transparency organization focused on religious communities, published its first big trophy this week: a collection of 33 letters and documents from an internal investigation into alleged sexual abuse within a congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Like other whistle-blower organizations, FaithLeaks provides sources the ability to anonymously submit sensitive documents, which the site then posts publicly. FaithLeaks uses SecureDrop, an encrypted open-source system that is also used by media outlets including the New York Times and ProPublica. SecureDrop uses the anonymizing Tor network to facilitate submissions that leave no trace online. Founded by two former Mormons in November, FaithLeaks believes that “increased transparency within religious organizations results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse.”

The documents released this week span from 1999 to 2012, and they’re devastating. They include details about accusations by three women against one church member. The first case involves allegations made by the man’s adult daughter, who accused him of sexual and physical abuse that began when she was 5 years old. (Names have been redacted in all the FaithLeaks documents.) Another daughter and an unrelated woman later came forward to make abuse accusations against the same man; the second daughter said her father had begun to “fondle and touch” her at the age of 3, and began raping her at 8.

The first document, a detailed report from the local congregation to Jehovah’s Witness headquarters in Brooklyn, makes clear the church found the first accuser credible. “It certainly appears that these were real events,” the letter concludes. “It is our opinion that these allegations have substance.” But the documents that follow capture Jehovah’s Witness leaders’ attempts to deal with the accusations internally over many years, without intervention from the “worldly court of law”—that is, without going to the police. One of the documents describes an incident in which the accused man apparently violated a restraining order against one of the alleged victims; church leaders criticized her husband for calling the police at the time, accusing him of “bypassing theocratic organization because of his personal feelings.” Church leaders revoked some privileges from the accused man and even excommunicated him, but he was reinstated after only a year.

The founders of FaithLeaks hope to shed light on corruption and cover-ups within other religious communities going forward. “Our goal is to reduce the amount of deception and untruths and unethical behaviors that exist in some facets of religion,” Ryan McKnight told Religion News Service. “If someone is in possession of documents they feel deserve to be made public, we’re simply here to help facilitate that.” McKnight and his co-founder, Ethan Dodge, say they are particularly interested in documents related to finances, congregational policies and procedures, and information on sex-abuse settlements.

>Names have been redacted in all the FaithLeaks documents

That itself is bullshit. People should know who is abusing children so the authorities can go after them. By not providing names that is helping cover up the crime.

Funny story, I used to have Jehovah’s Witnesses ring my doorbell every once in a while peddling their local magazines. Many of the women were pretty ugly, but one of them was pretty cute. I always was happy to see her even though I was never very religious at that time. I really wanted to bang her too, but never got around to it in time, and kinda regret that I hesitated, haven't seen her in years.

Health Officials ADMIT The Flu Shot Does NOT Work Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 13:35:40 Id: 742a32 [Preview] No. 5468 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Albert Einstein is broadly credited with saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. By that definition, the entire healthcare profession of most of the developed world is insane. Why else would they continue to insist, year after year, that people be vaccinated against the flu, when year after year, the vaccine proves to be ineffective?

The U.K.’s Daily Mail recently reported that this year’s flu vaccine (unsurprisingly) is targeted at the wrong strains, and that the thousands of people who have already received the shot have wasted their own time and the government’s money.

U.S. publications, including The New York Times, are reporting that we are experiencing the same problem on this side of the pond.

The Times reported:

This year’s flu season is shaping up to be a bad one. Much of the country endured a bitterly cold stretch, causing more people to be crowded together inside. The strain that has been most pervasive, H3N2, is nastier than most. And, we’re being told, the vaccine this year is particularly ineffective.

Of course, The Times immediately went on to stress that people should still get the flu shot, but then they would do that, because they seem to echo whatever Big Pharma – and its advertising dollars – want them to say.

The Mail reported that Public Health England (PHE) has officially announced that the trivalent vaccine, which is supposed to prevent one “B” strain and two “A” strains of the flu, is ineffective against this year’s two most prevalent and virulent strains: The B/Yamagata type, and H3N2, a particularly aggressive strain known as “Aussie flu.”

Between them, these two strains have placed immense strain on the resources of the U.K.’s already overburdened National Health Service (NHS).

Ambulances have recorded long delays, while A&E staff have been so busy dealing with flu patients in their casualty units, that they have been unable to transfer other patients from ambulances in order to receive care.

I find this funny because the only vaccines I ever had was when I got them as a kid growing up. I never took any vaccine as an adult and I hardly ever get sick. Haven't had the flu for over 10 years, and at that time I recovered in a few days after resting and eating some chicken noodle soup. No big deal. Fuck those toxic vaccines and their shills.

Health is all about the immune system. If you have a strong immune system, you can fight sickness without much intervention. If your immune system is weak, then you'll need medical attention and have a very hard time when falling ill (and you stand a better chance of falling ill with a weakened immune system.)

Why does Big Pharma lace the vaccines with poison?

Simple: $$$$$$

By injecting you with laced toxins, they are weakening your immune system. By weakening your immune system, you need more help and services when you get sick. This makes Big Pharma more money! They will never admit this (because its a war crime by UN Geneva Convention Laws). But, like all other despots, they do it anyway, because they make profits when people are SICK... not the other way around.

Until Americans come to terms with these war crimes for profit, they will remain ignorant, sickly and die young, enjoying what stupidity has to offer while it lasts.

Real Progress! Greece Begins Limiting the Threats of Tyrannical Sharia Law Reader 01/15/2018 (Mon) 01:50:18 Id: 3b2ea3 [Preview] No. 5485 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Greece is curbing the power of sharia courts that operate in the northern region of the country.

The new law (paywall), which prime minister Alexis Tsipras described as a “historic step,” gives Greek Muslims the option to take civil cases to Greek courts instead. The law restricts the application of religious law in the country, which according to Tsipras “broadens and deepens equality before the law to all Greeks.” Greece is home to some 100,000 Muslims.

Sharia law has applied to Thrace, a poor northern region home to most of Greek’s Muslim minority, for close to a century. This is down to the 1920 treaty of Sevres, following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, sparking population movements between Greece and Turkey; and the 1923 treaty of Lausanne, which recognized the boundary of modern Turkey. The treaties required that Islamic customs and Islamic religious law apply to thousands of Muslims who remained in Greece and suddenly became Greek citizens.

There are some simmering tensions between Turkey and Greece on the latter’s small Muslim community. Turkey calls the Muslim residents in Thrace the “Turkish minority,” but Greece continues to challenge the use of that term, accusing Turkey of attempting to meddle in domestic disputes.

The Greek parliament was forced to respond to the issue after a complaint was filed by a 67-year-old widow, Hatijah Molla Salli. The court case was about an inheritance dispute between Salli and her deceased husband’s relatives. Salli claimed the inheritance (paywall) that her husband left her in a will drafted by a Greek lawyer before he died. Her husband’s family disputed this and complained to the local mufti (an Islamic cleric), arguing that under Sharia law, Muslims were not allowed to have wills. Salli initially won her case after appealing to Greek secular justice, but the decision was reversed by the Greek Supreme Court in 2013, which ruled that only a mufti had the power to resolve Muslim inheritance rights. Salli then took her case to the European Supreme Court.

The new law gives Salli the backing she needs.


Nigel Farage Warns EU's Soviets Trying To Subjugate UK, Destroy Democracy, Denying Brexit Declaration Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 23:55:58 Id: 7e7abe [Preview] No. 5480 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The former UKIP boss warned that Britain's historic decision to leave the EU could be vulnerable to establishment-backed campaigns and a cabal of Europhile dictators.

The warning came as a group of leading economists warned that failing to strike a deal with Britain could cost the EU £500bn.

The former UKIP boss said that Britain's decision to leave the EU could be vulnerable to establishment-backed campaigns and a cabal of Europhile MPs.He told The Observer: "The Remain side are making all the running.

“They have a majority in parliament, and unless we get ourselves organised we could lose the historic victory that was Brexit.

“The Leave groups need to regather and regroup, because Remain is making all the arguments.

"After we won the referendum, we closed the doors and stopped making the argument.

“We no longer have a majority in parliament. I think we would lose the vote in parliament."

He said: “What is for certain is that the Cleggs the Blairs will never ever, ever give up. They will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process."

Detective Investigating Podestas Found Stabbed To Death Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 19:03:24 Id: 6d44e8 [Preview] No. 5477 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The blood-soaked body of a private detective who linked John and Tony Podesta to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann has been found at a mansion in Surrey, England.

Mystery surrounds the death of Washington D.C. based Kevin Halligen, 56, who presented himself as a ‘cloak-and-dagger, James Bond-style spy’ who took on the most difficult cases. Surrey Police confirmed Saturday that a probe has been launched into his death.


Kevin Halligen took over the private investigation into the Madeleine McCann case in May 2008 and was responsible for linking John and Tony Podesta to the disappearance of the 3-year-old girl in Portugal, sparking frenzied speculation that the brothers, both high-level Democratic Party operatives, were responsible for her murder.

The 56-year-old detective and his partner Henri Exton were responsible for the two e-fit sketches, that were released in the search for the Madeline McCann abductor(s), and which bore more than a passing resemblance to John and Tony Podesta.

Kevin Halligen’s investigative work into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann revealed that one of the men pictured in the e-fit sketches was seen carrying a young child that resembled the 3-year-old child on a beach in Praia da Luz, Portugal, a popular beach holiday location where Halligen also proved the Podesta brothers were holidaying at the time.


Mainstream media attempted to convince everyone that it was a co-incidence. However the 56-year-old private detective knew more about the Podesta brothers and their secrets than many initially assumed. The British investigator was D.C. based, and worked for Oakley International, an intelligence operation that considered the Podesta Group to be its natural enemy.

Oakley International was based out of 2550 M Street, NW, Washington, DC. This address is also the office of Patton Boggs, Washington’s most politically-connected law firm and lobbyist organization. When Halligan first moved to D.C. in 2005, he hired Patton Boggs to help set up his new business.

So there is no question Halligen knew about the Podestas and their reputation. Why did he link them to Madeleine McCann’s disappearance in Portugal? What dirt did Halligan have on the two powerful Democratic operatives?

Why did Kevin Halligen, hired by the McCann’s to investigate their daughter’s disappearance, produce e-fits closely resembling (beyond reasonable doubt) his client’s (Patton Boggs) biggest rivals?

Who persuaded – and why – Gerry and Kate McCann to put their faith in a random Washington DC-based private detective, and pay him $500,000, after he reached out to them telling them he could find their daughter?

And why was Gerry McCann pictured laughing and joking his way around Washington D.C., in July 2007 (less than three months after his daughter Madeleine disappeared), lobbying statesmen on child trafficking, kissing Laura Bush’s dog, and generally enjoying the limelight?

Kevin Halligen’s blood-soaked death in Surrey, England this week stinks to high heaven. The man who linked the Podestas to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann appears to have paid the ultimate price for something he did during his 56 years on this earth. Many believe linking the powerful Podestas to the disappearance of the 3-year-old was the moment he signed his death warrant.


Treasonous DHS To Continue DACA Amnesty Renewals Despite Deadline Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 15:04:11 Id: 1869f4 [Preview] No. 5470 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Department of Homeland Security announced Saturday it would resume processing renewal applications for young undocumented immigrants seeking protection from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The Trump administration announced in September that it would eliminate DACA, which protects people who were illegally brought to the United States as children — so-called Dreamers — from being deported. The administration said at the time it did not have the authority to administer the program and it was up to Congress to make it law.

But on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that the Trump administration's decision to eliminate DACA was based on a shoddy legal argument and called the move "arbitrary" and "capricious."

Ruling in favor of the University of California, Alsup ordered the government to resume DACA renewal applications while challenges to the September order work their way through the courts.

The White House and President Donald Trump initially blasted the decision. But in a statement Saturday, DHS said: "Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on Sept. 5, 2017."

Why not refuse to pass the next budget? This is what I would do, shut them all down. They can't process renewals if their shut down, can they?

Also, fuck what a commifornian court claims! DACA is a fucking Executive Order by Obama - NOT a constitutional right or a law! POTUS - ANY POTUS - has the right to remove or change ANY Executive Order!

Fucking dipshit cunts!

Spain Breaks Modern Soviet EU's Attempts To Tariff UK After Brexit Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 11:50:44 Id: 86f75f [Preview] No. 5467 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Both Spain and the Netherlands have agreed to push for a Brexit deal “that keeps Britain as close to the EU as possible”, it has been reported.

Theresa May wants barrier free trade with the EU to continue for all-important services as well as goods.

She is expected to also ask Brussels to allow the UK to diverge from its rules and regulations, but German Chancellor Angela Merkel has branded it “cherry-picking” and has promised to forbid it.


The Pound soared upon news of the reported agreement between Spain and the Netherlands.

The agreement between Spain and the Netherlands has come despite boy Germany and France attempting to hit the UK with tougher conditions for market access, it has been reported.

The leaders of the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Hungary and Ireland have all publicly called for the EU not to punish the UK for Brexit.

The news comes after Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy last month admitted the UK is an “indispensable partner” to Spain and the EU.

Speaking at European Council meeting last month, Mr Rajoy highlighted the need to maintain relations between the UK and Brussels after Brexit.

Arkansas Grand Jury Convened To Indict Bill and Hillary Clinton For Uranium One Treason Reader 01/14/2018 (Sun) 10:57:07 Id: f15d18 [Preview] No. 5464 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A grand jury in Arkansas has been convened to indict Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as Clinton Foundation employees, for crimes connected to the “pay-for-play scheme,” according to reports.

Corey Hiland, a US attorney picked by Trump in 2017, now has a grand jury in place in Little Rock, Arkansas, and has been working for months, according to the Washington Post.

The battle for Clinton justice is no longer just about Trump, who said Hillary Clinton should be in jail. It’s no longer just about Sessions, who went on the record, before he was Attorney General, describing the Clinton Foundation as a pay-for-play scheme.

It’s now about Corey Hiland, the prosecuting US Attorney in Arkansas who is not going to play ball with the Clintons and their Foundation.

Trump’s pick for US Attorney for the eastern district of Arkansas is determined to deliver justice to the Clintons and their criminal Foundation. Despite his cool and unassuming exterior, a fiery yet focused determination simmers underneath.

Corey Hiland has re-opened the Clinton Foundation investigation that was closed down by Loretta Lynch and James Comey. He has a grand jury with subpoena power, thanks to Attorney General Jeff Sessions in D.C.

The Washington Post, the newspaper of the Deep State, has begun foreshadowing the Clinton indictments, preparing their readers for the inevitable. They are petrified, and they know it is going to take place. They don’t know how to spin it, so they have started saying that Trump has influenced the Department of Justice.

They are saying this without any evidence, while giving Bill Clinton a free pass after he met with Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix, three days before Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI, with the express purpose of influencing the investigation.
