Plasma ‘Crowd Control’ Weapon that Screams, Burns, Blinds and Kills from 3,000 ft Away Revealed 

The US Marines are developing a new laser weapon that can transmit voice messages at long range, or be turned up to deafen, dazzle or even kill.

The Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser System (SCUPLS) will be mounted on a truck or tank.

It will initially be used as a non-lethal weapon for crowd control, according to US Government documents.

Using the different effect would allow operators to control crowds or enemies, first warning them before using the higher settings

The aim of the project is to ‘Develop a lightweight and energy efficient next-generation Ultra-Short Pulse Laser (USPL) system that can produce sustainable and controllable plasma at range capable of inducing a full spectrum of scalable non-lethal effects.’

The weapon works using an igniter laser, that fires an intense short pulse powerful enough to create a ball of plasma.

This can be created in mid-air, or on the surface of a target.

A stronger detonator laser then explodes the plasma ball, which can be used to create ‘enhanced non-lethal effects such as flash bang effects, thermal ablation for pain, and delivery of intelligible voice commands at range’ according to military documents.

However, the weapon could also eventually be used to kill.

The document mentions future plans include ‘advancement of possible full spectrum of effects capabilities from non-lethal to lethal, along with added Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance system capabilities.’

The weapon can produce a range of effects.

At the lowest setting, the weapon can produce speech, and it will be able to warn people upto 1,000m away by delivering voice messages.

When it gets closer, the weapon will deliver a ‘Flash-bang effect’ by sending an ‘acoustic blast of ~ 165+ dB at minimum distance of 100 meters’.

It will also be able to send a ‘Flash blind effects (6-8 million candela)’ momentarily blinding people at minimum distance of 100 meters

The highest setting of the current model will let loose ‘Full scalable thermal ablative effects’ through common natural clothing (i.e., fabric, denim, leather, etc.) at minimum distance of 100 meters.

This would painfully vaporise the outer layer of skin – rather than burning it will be turned into gas.

Using the different effect would allow operators to control crowds or enemies, first warning them before using the higher settings.

The documentation for the project says it will ‘have direct application to many other U.S. Government agencies as well as civilian law enforcement.

‘The Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Department of Justice, the Secret Service, and Customs and Border Protection also desire this full spectrum of effects capability.

‘The ability to non-lethally interdict a threatening person or persons has utility in many security and crowd control applications to include several municipal applications.’

The plan is for SCUPLS to be mounted on a small vehicle, such as the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) or High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV).

The design phase should be completed in 2019, after which a prototype will be built and tested.

WHAT IT CAN DO

The weapon can produce a range of effects.

  • At the lowest setting, the weapon can produce speech, and it will be able to warn people upto 3,200 feet (1,000m) away by delivering voice messages.
  • When it gets closer, the weapon will deliver a ‘Flash-bang effect’ by sending an ‘acoustic blast of ~ 165+ dB at minimum distance of 100 meters’.
  • It will also be able to send a ‘Flash blind effects (6-8 million candela)’ momentarily blinding people at minimum distance of 100 meters
  • The highest setting of the current model will let loose ‘Full scalable thermal ablative effects’ through common natural clothing (i.e., fabric, denim, leather, etc.) at minimum distance of 100 meters. This would painfully vaporise the outer layer of skin – rather than burning it will be turned into gas.

US coronavirus medicine will cost $ 3120

Gilead Sciences, an American biopharmaceutical company, has announced the value of its coronavirus drug. The general course of treatment for 5 days will have a price tag of $ 2,340.

Until September, remdesivir will be sold only in the United States. The cost of a full course of treatment for people with private insurance is $ 3,120, for an ampoule – $ 520. For patients with state insurance, as well as for patients from other countries, the price of the drug will be $ 2,340 per course and 390 per bottle.

Remdesivir was approved in early May for the treatment of coronavirus in the United States. Although the drug was originally developed to combat Ebola, it was not able to show visible results against this disease. But later, the drug had an effect in the treatment of SARS and MERS infections.

A large clinical study by the National Institute of Allergology and Infectious Diseases showed that the drug reduced recovery time by an average of four days, but did not affect the number of deaths.

Since the United States has a fairly large network of insurance institutions, the importance of remdesivir is not only in its benefit to the patient, but also for the healthcare system.

“Based on the example of the United States, an earlier discharge from the hospital will save her about $ 12 thousand per patient,” said Daniel O’Day, director general of Gilead Sciences.

Since receiving permission for emergency use of the drug, Gilead Sciences has transferred remdesivir to hospitals to treat patients. The last batches of donated drugs were distributed on Monday, June 29th.

In Germany, for almost 30 years, the authorities secretly gave orphans to pedophiles

In Germany, the University of Hildesheim published the final report on the scandalous Kentler project – a terrifying social experiment, during which for about 30 years children were given up for adoption to pedophiles, calling it molestation “socialization” and “sexual education,” Deutsche Welle writes.

In the 1960s in Germany, people in some circles viewed sex with children not as taboo, but as something progressive. One of the key figures in such thinking was Helmut Kentler, professor of psychology and pedagogy in Berlin. For a long time he was considered a seer and one of the most prominent sexologists in Germany. His books on education sold well, he was a popular expert and commentator on radio and television, and held leading positions in the Berlin center for educational research. 

The psychologist founded the theory of “emancipatory sexual education”, suggesting that children have the right to express their sexuality. Beginning in the 1970s, he conducted clinical trials in which pedophiles were allowed to adopt homeless teenage boys aged 13 to 15 for their “mutual benefit”. According to Kentler, pedophiles could become particularly loving adoptive parents.

By 1988, the professor summed up the results of the first stage of the experiments, calling it successful. He argued that sexual relations between adoptive fathers and minors are harmless and help adolescents quickly adapt to society and facilitate the process of growing up. The fact that the boys entered into adulthood with a broken psyche did not bother Kentler.

The experiments were secret, but were carried out with the full approval of the authorities of West Berlin. In his papers, the psychologist wrote that he “managed to enlist the support of responsible local authorities”: from academic institutions to state social welfare services.

For many years, the professor managed to convince the authorities of the normality of his ideas, so he was never prosecuted by the court. By the time his victims made statements, his statute of limitations had expired. The scandal flared up only in 2015; Kentler himself died in 2008.

When the full-scale investigation began, it turned out that there was a whole network in which officials from the Berlin Office for Juvenile Affairs, the city Senate and a number of educational institutions were involved. All of them “accepted, supported and defended” the experiment and its adult participants. In addition, it was possible to establish that among the adoptive fathers were, including eminent scientists from the Max Planck Institute, the Free University of Berlin and the Odenwald school, which are now suspected of pedophilia. (By the way, the Odenwald school was already the subject of litigation in 2014, when a case was launched on the corruption of minor students.) According to Marco and Sven, who became victims of the experiment, one person, The suspect in involvement in this system – the former head of the youth welfare service – is still alive. However, no investigation has yet been made.

The first report on the Kentler experiment was published in 2016 by the University of Gottingen. Researchers then stated that the Berlin Senate did not seem interested in clarifying the truth.

Berlin senator for youth and children Sandra Sheres called the results of the investigation of the University of Hildesheim “shocking and terrifying.” She openly expressed her sympathy for the victims and condemned the crimes, which she calls “simply unimaginable.” Although the statute of limitations for these crimes has expired, Sheres promised financial compensation for the suffering.

Largest ever CIA cyber weapon secret data leak

The reason for the largest secret data leak in the history of the CIA in 2016 was the negligence of elite personnel who focused on creating a new cyber weapon to the detriment of improving the security of computer systems. 

This is written by the American publication The Washington Post with reference to the organization’s internal report, which was written in 2017.

It is noted that the leak was discovered only a year after it occurred, after the WikiLeaks organization published a large archive called “Vault 7”. At the same time, the report says that the CIA might not have known about the leak if WikiLeaks had not released the documents. 

“If the data got to the enemy state and remained secretly with them, we would not know anything about their loss,” the report said.

The authors of the documents also wrote that the exact size of the stolen information could not be established. It probably reaches 34 terabytes, or 2.2 billion pages. It is noted that the level of security system developed by the CIA cyber division was “terribly weak”.

After an internal investigation as a result of leakage under suspicion of transferring WikiLeaks about CIA operations data was Joshua A. Schulte, a former employee of the security services. He was one of the developers of programs that the CIA uses to hack into computers of people suspected of terrorism. In March 2020, the jury could not reach a verdict in the Schulte case.

The archive “Vault 7” mentioned software developed by the special service that allows access to phones running iOS and Android, computers running Windows and smart TVs by Samsung.
