the situation on the streets of Kiev, Ukraine, is much calmer today. Protesters are still out in force but now it appears that the government is ready to negotiate after violent clashes this week left at least three people dead.

Well, in the midst of all the protests, a strange thing happened earlier this week when protesters got text messages on their phone that said: Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance.

---were you surprised by this at all, that a text message like this could go out to all these people who were gathered in one place?

I was a little surprised that the government would advertise that it could do such a thing to try to quell a protest,

There is something called a tower dump where you can just ask the phone company to pull down records from nearby cell towers to find out what's going on and what, you know, what subscribers connected to a particular tower at a particular time. You can get a bunch of data on the people who are nearby just by asking for that information at times. --- The U.S. law enforcement agencies made more than 9,000 requests for tower dumps in 2012. ----

But you don't need to do that because you could also put up something called a stingray, a rogue cell tower yourself if you were a government who wanted to find out what's going on in a given area.

Short of turning off your phone or not using a phone at all, is there anything that you can do to protect yourself from something like this, from a government, wherever it may be, tracking where you are and then sending you a text message to tell you that it knows where you are? --- I can't think of anything offhand

Outside of using new phones. But that doesn't help. Two words... Voice recognition.

Angry Birds surveillance app
 
I wondered how long this would pop up. Just never thought Angry Birds.. Haha

Jay Carney ducks Angry Birds surveillance question

Victoria Jones of Talk News Radio Service framed her question around the avian app.

Quote:

The NSA is lurking in the background of your game of Angry Birds, waiting to scoop up all your personal data as you lob hapless creatures into the air,” she said. “This is the last bastion of American freedom has been breached. I mean, there seems to be something particularly egregious about going after leaky apps
http://www.politico.com/story/2014/0...#ixzz2regwFgmm

Heck here I thought my Angry Birds Star Wars was a time killer at the doctors office, dang it's a surveillance app pulling all my mobile bonner and contacts. Dang. Like to know what they think on my three SIM card cell phone. Guess that Mac and mini numbers are tag.

SHIELDSAK, a product of the LOKSAK Corporation. Because just turning off your cellphone isn't enough. (Don't forget to turn your phone off before "bagging" it, otherwise it'll drain the battery as it searches fruitlessly for connectivity.)

Sorry for forgetting to add it to my post(edited now).

Good article.

On one hand, infuriating.

On the other, enlightening.

I couldn't help but think that it could represent a partial foundation for a digital generation's version of Alinsky's rules.

Seven years down the road, everything discussed in this thread was employed to undermine the Trump Administration. The assault harnessed the entire structure of SM and its communal relationship to the entire world. In my mind, it's the greatest domestic UW campaign ever undertaken. Even to the point, that blatant voter fraud as an accepted outcome is nothing less than a stunning achievement to goal.

One of my favourite threads here.

Thanks for resurrecting it.

Sadly, it reads like an exact copy of strategy, doctrine, and operational execution for:


DNC
Antica
BLM
Black Bloc

1)Mixed with “Left-Tech” social media platform capacity and capability “mass” with relevant lessons learned and dusted off from the Arab Spring, particularly Libya/Egypt.

2)DNC portraying the role of Sinn Fein’s offset political wing to the above’s IRA.

3)Application of Saul Alinksy’s Rules for Radicals to portray assault groups as victims

4)Mimic the pre--ultra-violence Baader-Meinhoff Red Army Faction “Robin Hood/Honeymoon”phase of strong public support

It looks and feels like a plug-and-play Lego set of classic and contemporary best practices for a UW campaign.

What does a successful C-UW campaign look like here?

Penn,

You are spot on that this was almost a blueprint of the “attempted” take-down of President Trump.

I remembered reading this information, but could not recollect the source.

Thanks for reviving this thread.

TRUMP'S RESPONSE:
 
President Trump should have responded to the attacks on him & his presidency by DETAINING everyone associated with the ongoing coup attempt. Now he can declare martial law and take into protective custody EVERYONE who may be in danger from enemies foreign & domestic.

Boycott Social and Corporate Media
 
The New York Post reported that Facebook hired 6 Chinese from the PRC to create
Censorship algorithms to use against Americans, the lies, propaganda, etc put out by
Social and Corporate media a couple of us decided Enough! The only way to get their attention is a Boycott. The only things that get their attention are money and power.
There are approximately fifty folks, who have joined in since Monday, business owners, etc. are reaching out to their friends to join them. A Grass Roots Boycott can
get their attention. If just half of Trump voters join the Boycott, that will create financial pain for the stockholders and stakeholders. Tough to censor financial failure.
A Grass Roots Boycott will get a bit of attention. While an election might cause fraud, failure, etc. loss of money equals loss of power and pain. Let's make them hurt like like our small businesses and restaurants are.
Thank you

SM and your participation is a psych game.
 
Very insightful interview with the former CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt how the MSM used emotion to generate clicks, which impacts bottom line. To change SM, don't be a poster responding to baited content.

Joe Rogan is a strange animal.

It's great that he has opened his eyes to the evils of the "thought police" but don't forget - he is still just a dope smoking hippy that would love to see Michelle Obama in the white house.
...and those are the people he votes for. These are the people guys like him have ALWAYS voted for - these are the people they will CONTINUE to vote for in spite of failed social policies. The only reasons thee people are suddenly worried about freedom of speech is because it is THEIR speech that is suddenly in danger.

The shit going on "today" with social media is just a 20 year old "I told you so" from people that have been saying this was where we were going all along.
-The same way that people who thought DADT was a bad idea that would lead to the military paying for trannies to get boob jobs and fabricated penises.
-The same ones that said legalizing weed as a recreational drug would lead to more problems.
-The same ones that are now referred to as irredeemable and deplorable.

Back in the 90's it was funny for people to call me a conspiracy nut. Now I'm just an asshole who doesn't understand why a man with gender dysphoria and sagging titties can be the Assistant Secretary of Health. Incrementalism mother fuckers - lets not act like we weren't warned this was coming. People are marrying trees now - and it's only going to get worse.

Thank you. I was beginning to wonder if there was a threshold & suspected there wasn't one. I've been told I'm an asshole a time or too.

Given current course, speed (and fuel on-board) what do you think the average hang-time is for conspiracy theory before it becomes policy? Or last week's fishwrap? That window has to be shortening up.

Bill Marr and Jon Stewart are two more strange animals to add in with Joe Rogan. They are all coming off as voices of reason, growing their base and at least in Rogans case infiltrating the new social media platforms like Gettr. And they are all Obama and Clinton acolytes.

I view them as Trojan horses, then again they may just be opportunists.

The unfortunate state of current day aMErican society is that even liberal extremists from the 1990's and early 2000's are starting to seem sane.

Joe Rogan first came to fame by sensationalizing desperate attention whores that were willing to eat raw pig brains and let people put them in a big fish tank full of spiders in hopes that they would get some money and some public exposure.
...now he gets pissed off and attacks the establishment because the establishment ridiculed his health care choices. Otherwise, he has spent the last 20 years using social media to "pretend bash" the same establishment that he has helped repeatedly vote into office so they could legalize his recreational drug use and allow illegal aliens to flood across our southern border.

Jon Stewart is a Jewish guy that once reminded us that people from Hamas view themselves as freedom fighters - and when you can say such a thing and even Hillary Clinton does a double take at what you just said...
...well, make your own judgements about who Jon Stewart "really" is.

Bill Mahr?
Bro - I can't even begin to imagine were I would begin to start a diatribe about the shit he says.


Now - here we are - a culture poisoned by corrupt politicians and self serving celebrities posting videos from their 50 acre mansion letting us know "we are all in this together" and all one of them has to say in order to fool people into thinking they are moral benevolent souls is is "hey mother fucker - my body my choice" referring to their preferred COVID treatment modalities - or they finally suggest that MAYBE now that the cancel culture is attacking fellow LIBERALs that MAYBE we should back off the woke a few notches - or that we should take some of our squandered tax money and start spending it to care for the injured and ill Police and Fireman that survived the attack on the World Trade Center.
Forget all of the other ludicrous shit these jokers have spouted on social media for the last 20 years and suddenly the aMErican public starts to look at these jackasses like they are some sort of modern day Mark Twain.

Fuck that - they are all part of the same club.



I don't hate them for being hypocrites - hypocrisy is my FAVORITE flavor of social kool-aid.
I just hate them for their particular strains of hypocrisy.

...I'd be so ashamed of telling them the truth about who we have selected to manage our planets day to day operations that I'd probably just pass out from the stress.


Lord knows, if I was an emissary from another planet and picked up the social media feed coming from this third rock from the sun - well - lets just say I'd put the Illudium PU-36 explosive space modulator into action and get rid of this ridiculous experiment in civilized life forms faster than you can say "Illudium PU-36 explosive space modulator"

The collective behavior of earth inhabitants as they interact with one another on social media makes me very angry, very angry indeed.

Mankind had better hope that I am not the first contact - it will not turn out the way people think it should.

Social media as a platform to mobilize political protest and activism would be the nothing compared to the new era that will be ushered in if I ever become the Dark Overlord of the Known Universe.

I would move my base of operations to planet Nibiru and every time something stupid went out on social media, every puny earthling would get zapped simultaneously with my Galactic Space-Tazer.
...two or seven zaps from my Galactic Space-Tazer and these puny earth dwellers would finally start to police themselves.

Or they wouldn't.
Eventually - if the noncompliance on social media continued - I would simply doom everyone to a lifetime inside of a rubber Mark Suckerberg suit and the only thing on TV would be reruns of RuPauls Drag Race.
...and the only meal choices will be Vegan BBQ ribs made out of Seitan and Jackfruit for earth's meat eaters and rare cooked select grade ground beef patties for earth's vegans.

I will not be denied!

Why isn't anyone reacting to this continual narrative? Again, imo, this affords BLM the right/opportunity to press their assault on law enforcement, within societal standards, due to MSM blessing and without condemnation from the political class, MSM, and the populace, which has been edit out of the conversation.

In my mind, the criminals that have been released, are the lefts brown shirts, firing the first shots. Without social support, law enforcement will continue to erode and society will implode.

The extreme left, is actually the main stream Democratic Party. They have no intention of pulling the radical left in, as the narrative that is slowly being presented in the election will be compromised/illegitimate, giving those brown shirts full authority to attack all who oppose them.

With law enforcement in decline, an active social native terrorist group, organized around released criminals as their core, harboring deep seated hate against law officer and society, with the blessing of MSM. The next 9 months will be hell.

A side question: Why isn't anyone, including all the talking heads on Fox News asking this question: Who is the far left group dunning the government? I ask because they, whoever they are, are not subject to federal protection, and if ID, should be exposed.
