    Most of that comes because you all believed the fake dream the US sold you all after WW2, instead of listening to the ones that actually won that war, now you see dumb people claiming the US liberated Auschwitz and got to Berlin in an heroic movie-like scene and kill hitler somehow, just think about that LMFAO!
    Rock music is typically playing in the background a la CCR.

    Joking aside I didn't learn about the reality of WW2 until I was in my 20s. What's sad is I think most Americans still think we more or less single handedly put a stop to it and brought peace to the world.
    Just as every cop is a criminal

    I'm not sure what incognito mode is, but I tell my browser to delete all cookies on exit, and I close all browser windows before going to another site so that I go with no cookies.

    Meeradas posted this in the Here And Now thread. It definitely belongs in this thread, and although it's a long listen, it's THE foundation course in where we are at with this stuff. It's worse than you might already think it is.

    I couldn't care less about their spying anymore. It is immoral, a violation of my right to privacy, and negates any and all binding contracts with any in authority, for the express reason that those protecting my rights have violated the public trust. This includes all obligations to any corporation, including banks, credit cards, and most especially government decree.

    This is how the situation is being described on Facebook:



    So, if you are going to have a rally or meeting that could potentially be violent, you are going to post about it on Facebook?!?!? If 9/11 happened today, the story would be that the 19 angry hijackers met in a Facebook group and planned the entire job via Facebook Messenger.

    This is just another cheap ploy to convince the naive that restricting free speech and taking away privacy is for their protection.

    There is also a lot of left/right divisiveness to it. Some newspapers are trying to portray the protesters as "deplorable" Trump supporters.



    At some point, there will probably be lots of African Americans living in inner cities frustrated because they can not get food and other basic services. Let me guess MSNBC ("liberal" US news broadcasting) will be focusing in on the phenomena as a right wing protest whil FOX NEWS ("conservative" broadcasting) will focus in this as terrorist socialism.

    Again, take a D-E-E-P breadth. Know it is merely MK-Ultra Mind control and it isn't going to work. We will get beyond this.

    Further to my above posts, I would not normally be quoting the Cassiopaea material, which I tend to avoid, but as Hervé has walked the walk as well as talked the talk, I’m going to make an exception here. This is Laura Knight-Jadcyk:
    Quote So sitting back and enjoying the show, to some extent, is the proper response. Nobody needs to get out there and make a target of themselves.

    Oh, incognito mode is a feature on Google Chrome that allows you to do the same, nothing you do there is saved like cookies or login info or which sites you visited, so it mostly does the same as you do, delete all cookies and not keep any data on any website (same as closing the browser)
    If life situation unclear, keep pressing your hand grip :P

    At some points my computer is telling me I lost my internet connection entirely, when I most certainly have not, and I can open up a new window, and as long as I search something "Casual" it loads right up! My wifi signal says it's full and I am connected.. And I absolutely can load up other things.

    So I am now being kept from sites, and researching. So I have to believe it is a result of what I am searching and what I am posting. It is s if someone is monitoring my browsing and when they see I am forming a picture, they kick me off of sites..
    How interesting. This is happening to me as well. I thought it was just because EVERYBODY and their mama is on the internet right now and bandwidth is low. It says I'm offline, when I'm doing deep research or following white rabbits my browser cycles endlessly. I thought it was Chrome so I started using Edge, which allows me to work better now. It's annoying because it is turning into a deeper thing and affecting my work also, it is difficult to even access my school sites sometimes, which affects my ability to teach my kiddos.

    So what I am saying is we too, in America are being heavily monitored right now. They don't seem to care if we bicker about our governments, political members, Constitutional rights, etc.. But the minute you suggest anything other than the Covid-19? They shut you down.. In my case? My very well researched post, taken down before it ever appeared.
    Agreed. And this is to the point now where the troll farms have expanded to include direct monitoring to an extent never before experienced here in the USA.

    It's happening everywhere.

    Paypal has recently locked me out of my account too. They've added a 3rd stage to the sign-in process. After, email address then password, they now have a phone number stage. Well, they've had that stage for a while but they autofilled it with my landline number and skipped me having to enter it.

    Now, a landline number is no longer valid. It HAS to be a mobile number ! I told them ( or a stupid bot in the messages section ) I don't have one. ( tha's not strictly true, I have an emergency basic phone for long trips ). My point is, I know where this is heading and I'm digging in my heels. All I get from them is the stupidest dialog you can imagine. I've left the messages section hanging several times and been called back by email to face a different 'helper', all just about as stupidly bot like, and stupid logic brick wall.

    I think I know how this is going to end. I hope I won't need to but any more stuff on line for a long while.

    I know I'm a very rare breed in this regard so I'm not counting on the cavalry turning up in the form of large numbers of similar complainants causing Paypal to back down.
    I got the same problem about 2 years ago, it was a kiss good bye paypal. I have been using bitcoin more than a decade, can generate invoices and send to customers pay, there exist bitcoin ATM around the world if you need cash ready, there is options I would recommend peer to peer mode and cut the middle man (aka exchanges). I am not saying you should use bitcoin, but it is an option if you dislike paypal. I do not invest in bitcoin, I use it to buy goods and services and to receive payments, so far so good.

    You could use Tor Browser and VPN all together to make things a little harder to the big brother. I can't see myself surfing internet without this two very useful tools.
    If you dislike Tor due to restrictions accessing certain websites, you could try a browser called Pale Moon (old version of Firefox) with a few add-on to block scripts and adverts.
    I am using Brave Browser and it seems ok, no major problems, also I have an old version of Firefox compiled by myself which sometimes does not work with modern websites.
    Also encryption is a very useful things to bypass restrictions, emails for example, use PGP to encrypt it, the content of your email will not be read by anyone except you and your other part receiving it.
    Major ISP will log everything you do on the internet, I say that for experience working more than 10 with these companies, be on the safe side and encrypt everything you can.
    Make it harder for them!!!

    Forgot to mention that you could use Tails, here is their website > https://tails.boum.org/

    Bitcoin sounds far too complicated for me. I'm a simple man.

    I don't actually dislike Paypal as a tool. It's the current Paypal policy and politics that I have a problem with.

    I'll know in November if I'm waiting for a return to sanity, or if it's all over. If it's all over, I won't need any more services anyway.

    You are welcome, I was checking if it is possible to install Tails from a MacOS and yes you can, here follow the instructions > https://tails.boum.org/install/mac/u.../index.en.html
    Tails come with Tor as default, it means you will not have to install Tor separately.

    Quote from their page
    "Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly."

    I personally been using Tails and Tor since the first versions, I have it in a USB stick. I do recommend it.

    You could use Tor Browser and VPN all together to make things a little harder to the big brother. I can't see myself surfing internet without this two very useful tools.
    If you dislike Tor due to restrictions accessing certain websites, you could try a browser called Pale Moon (old version of Firefox) with a few add-on to block scripts and adverts.
    I am using Brave Browser and it seems ok, no major problems, also I have an old version of Firefox compiled by myself which sometimes does not work with modern websites.
    Also encryption is a very useful things to bypass restrictions, emails for example, use PGP to encrypt it, the content of your email will not be read by anyone except you and your other part receiving it.
    Major ISP will log everything you do on the internet, I say that for experience working more than 10 with these companies, be on the safe side and encrypt everything you can.
    Make it harder for them!!!

    Forgot to mention that you could use Tails, here is their website > https://tails.boum.org/
    Good stuff, thanks for the advice. I do use a VPN pretty constantly, have for some years. Have never delved into Tor before, a bit wary of the negative externalities. I'm pretty sure my internet usage has been monitored for a long time and will continue to be above and beyond the stuff going on right now. Checked out the site Tails, looks great! Thanks again!

    Yeah, tails website has lot of information in their docs in how to properly use the system to keep the maximum of your anonymity/privacy, also you can always turn off the browser java script, adjust your local time a few hours before or after to your real location in order to avoid websites to collect lots of information from your local network/system. You can always read the tails docs, they provide lots of more information there. Like everything, it is not a 100% safe, but is a way better then surf the internet naked.

    I would recommend the book called "The Art of Invisibility" by Kevin Mitnick.

    Here I speak for myself, but I do know others that think like me.
    I truly do not mind to be persecuted, if I have to die for what I believe is the truth, let it be, nothing can stop it from happen.
    I have no religion to stand for, no leaders to follow (they all sucks), but I do believe in a Creator, and this Creator is looking after the creation, no doubt about.
    The natural laws of life is the only rules I do follow in this plan of existence and it leads you to help those who really need and are willing to stand for the truth, all the rest is just a game that we play in order to get a life(survive).
