Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress again today to finish off a second day of questioning on Capitol Hill. His appearance was voluntary and came as a result of the recent Cambridge Analytica data breach that saw the loss of 80 million plus Facebook users’ data.
Zuckerberg was questioned on a number of issues challenging Facebook including data usage, selling user data, privacy, the societal value of Facebook, Facebook’s political stance and how they censor outlets based on their political stance.
One of the longest running theories about Facebook was that it would collect information from your verbal conversations via your phone’s microphone while you have your phone on or around you. You likely experienced the following before: You are having a conversation with friends about a very specific brand, specific product and so forth. Then suddenly you hop on Facebook, having not searched for that product or brand at all, now there is an ad for that very product in your newsfeed.
Logically one would think the only way for this to happen would be that they are analyzing trigger words in your conversations. That, or they are somehow tapped into your consciousness and gathering data that way.
Congressman Larry Bucsh asked Zuckerberg on Wednesday whether or not Facebook does in fact mine data via your personal conversations using your phones microphone.
“My understanding is that a lot of these cases that you’re talking about are a coincidence,” Zuckerberg told Congress. This answer did not seem to go over so well based on the look on Bucsh’s face. Not just that, how could this truly explain the frequency and incredible accuracy of this phenomenon.
Zuckerberg was asked the question on both days of questioning as it has been one of the major questions surrounding Facebook spying. Still Zuckerberg stated that it was a “conspiracy theory,” and denied the practice with a flat “no.” He went on to say that he doesn’t know of any company using this tactic. Except for maybe the NSA? We know this tech exists, the question is does Facebook use it and are they willing to admit it?
Was he telling the truth? Does one even need to tell the truth during these types of hearings? While some of us think yes, in fact they don’t. And in many cases people have lied for us only to find out the truth a short time after.
Let’s not forget that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress the NSA does not “wittingly” spy on Americans. And yet only a few months later whistleblower Edward Snowden showed the entire world that the NSA was doing just that.
When it comes to news and information censorship, Facebook routinely does this to protect their own political position. We have seen this first hand when we share content that challenges Facebook’s own ideologies. Regardless of the fact our journalistic process uses facts, sources and proof that are well founded, Facebook views this as threatening information. Censorship has been intense from our perspective.
Reflecting On Why This Is Important
In December of 2017 I released an article stating Facebook would go through a deep awakening in 2018 due to the fact that their platform seems to be in need of a shift. Users are clearly unhappy and the social media giant has been using manipulative psychological tactics to prey on its users in order to keep them using the platform.
During a time where humanity’s consciousness is shifting so dramatically, this type of behaviour from companies won’t go unnoticed and people will begin to figure out what’s going on. Not only that, in a natural course of action companies will in essence ‘be outed’ for the things that aren’t in alignment with humanity truly thriving.
I feel this spotlight on Facebook is actually inspiring to see. While on one hand we can say it’s politics and congress trying to decide if they need to step in and help regulate, and on another hand dirty dealings, lies and deceit are coming to the surface in what is like a great unveiling where humanity can now reflect upon itself and what it does.
Is Facebook still of value to our daily lives when they do only what’s in the best interest of their business and not the user experience? Should we be spending so much time on a platform using tactics to manipulate us?
The barrage of ‘bad press’ for Facebook has been tough as they are losing users in the millions every month. In the end we learn another valuable lesson from this, when we, or companies, do things that don’t benefit the whole, our day or ‘reckoning,’ if you will, comes. What I mean by this is, as humanity we have to learn to do things that truly favor all involved or that do not harm nor take advantage of others simply for our individual benefit. This is a lesson being seen on the macrocosm but applies to the micro as well.
In your day, do you find yourself taking advantage of others? Running your business or your plans to benefit yourself more so than others? Why do you find yourself doing this? I believe we can all turn what we see in the ‘real world’ into an internal reflection for ourselves as well.
David Wilcock’s Insider: “Coming change defies all imagination. We are living through history.”
David Wilcock’s latest update, published on his Divine Cosmos website Sept. 8th, is entitled ‘Stunning New Briefings: Spy Satellites Down, Deep State Arrests Finally Imminent?‘ For my money, the lengthy and comprehensive update delivers fully on its title’s promise.
by Richard Enos
The fact is, firstly, that no one can truly predict the future. People may have compelling reasons to believe something will certainly happen based on all they know, only to come to realize that unseen forces continue to have an impact on imminent events. In this update, David takes us through some of those earlier projections, and constructs a through-line in which we can understand why so many ‘false starts’ to this major event have occurred, and why there is reason to believe that this time, and event of unparalleled historic proportions is about to occur.
One testimony that was getting many people excited was from ‘Mega Anon,’ known as an anonymous Trump administration insider of the forum 4chan just before Q-Anon arrived there. This testimony includes a quote from October 6th, 2017 , which David feels gives an interesting characterization of what the impact of a major ‘event’ fronted by Trump could be:
The goal is that when it’s all said and done, there will be no room for question, when it comes to the people.
He won’t have to disclose s#!t like 9/11, OKC, Vegas, Voter Fraud, Russia hacks or collusion, elections rigging, etc. specifically.
When he’s done, it will be a literal “mic drop” on the world’s stage.
No one ever again will have the ability to question who’s responsible for, involved in coordinating, etc. ANYTHING that has ever happened and been considered a “conspiracy theory”, ever again.
When he’s done, the entire world will just KNOW IT ALL. It really is THAT all-encompassing. Like Trump says, “you’ll see”. It just has to happen. We cannot be derailed. Ever again.
Almost a year later, we have not had a “mic drop” event. But there has been no lack of interesting things that have happened between now and then.
There are indications that the revealing of sensitive information to the public has been slow and piecemeal for a reason. It is believed that releases from Wikileaks (Assange), Snowden and others are done in such a way as to allow people to awaken to the truth without creating a planet-wide trauma or panic. While there may be many in the awakening community that could handle virtually anything, we still have to account for the reaction on the part of the unawakened people in the world to the release of incontestable graphic evidence of the most heinous crimes imaginable occurring on our planet.
Our intel is also saying that new data dumps are very imminent that could be far worse than anything we have seen already, including the so-called Pizzagate documents.
The Pizzagate documents were revealing, but because much of the wording and conversations were coded, people still had plausible deniability if they weren’t ready to accept the reality behind those documents. However, as David hints, we are moving forward.
Perhaps the biggest news to come out recently is that several satellites have been disabled. Here’s what David said about this:
The code names of the now-disabled satellites are Snow White, Corona and Big Bird, followed by a one or two-digit number. These covert satellites were apparently the communications backbone of the Cabal / New World Order / Illuminati / Deep State.
Drops by Q-Anon included by David in his update indicate that we have good reason to believe that disabling these satellites has literally left the Deep State unable to coordinate actions or defend itself now. Here is one of the notifications from Q about a particular satellite being disabled followed by his usual cryptic statements about the implications:
Q !!mG7VJxZNCI ID: bd6786 No.2805326
If in fact this is true, we have all the more reason to believe a long-forecast action on the part of the Alliance to bring down the Deep State is imminent. What action? Mass arrests.
51,000+ Sealed Indictments And Mass Arrests
As many who have been following Q-Anon are aware, a growing number of sealed indictments have been appearing on pacer.gov, an official government web site, as of last month’s end totaling over 51,000. Since in the past the average number of sealed indictments for one year is just over 1,000, this is probably the best piece of hard evidence that there certainly is a plan on the part of government forces to launch mass arrests in the near future. David explains how involved the process of getting a single sealed indictment is:
In order to grasp how significant it is to have fifty-one thousand sealed indictments on the books, some additional explanation is necessary. Each sealed indictment must be produced by a secret grand jury, convened for the occasion. This is no minor accomplishment, as we will see.
A secret grand jury is composed of twelve to twenty-three civilian jurors, who are sworn to absolute secrecy. The grand jury hears from a prosecutor who must either be a county district attorney (DA), a state attorney general (AG) or a federal US attorney. Sealed indictments can thus be generated from the county, state or federal level.
The secret grand jury hears evidence and, if convinced by the information, it files a sealed order for the pending arrest of the accused. No one can see who is named in the order until it becomes unsealed. This work can all be done on paper, so electronic surveillance won’t work either.
For this same reason, I imagine these secret grand juries are being held in SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) rooms. These rooms are completely impenetrable to any type of surveillance, satellite-based, electronic or otherwise.
September Is National Emergency Preparedeness Month
If there wasn’t enough reason to believe imminent action is planned, David notes Q’s revelation of an Executive Order by Donald Trump on September 1st declaring September ‘National Preparedness Month,’ which calls on all Americans to prepare for potential disasters:
Q !!mG7VJxZNCI ID: d1b112 No.2833619https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-proclamation-national-preparedness-month-2018/
National Preparedness Month is a time to focus our attention on the importance of preparing our families, homes, businesses, and communities for disasters that threaten our lives, property, and homeland. During this time, we also honor the brave men and women who selflessly respond to crises and disasters, rendering aid to those in need.
These first responders, who work tirelessly to safeguard our Nation and protect our citizens, deserve our utmost gratitude and appreciation…. Tragedies are somber reminders that preparedness is a shared responsibility and that it is critical to maintain readiness.
All Americans can prepare for potential disasters by developing and practicing a family emergency response plan, assembling a disaster supply kit, signing up for alerts on mobile devices, setting aside emergency savings, and maintaining adequate insurance policies for their homes and businesses. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Ready Campaign outlines other important steps to best prepare for a major disaster.
This month, I encourage all Americans to take the opportunity to ensure they have an emergency response plan in place and ready to be properly executed. Emergencies and disasters test the resilience and strength of families, communities, and our Nation. It is impossible to avoid every challenge and threat, but we can and must prepare for them. By doing so, we can help protect our communities and save lives.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 2018 as National Preparedness Month. I encourage all Americans, including Federal, State, and local officials, to take action to be prepared for disaster or emergency by making and practicing their emergency response plans. Each step we take to become better prepared makes a real difference in how our families and communities will respond and persevere when faced with the unexpected….
If indeed, there is an Alliance prepared to take down the Deep State, and by extension, the global elite or Cabal that has been running this planet through generational bloodline families since Antiquity, (as detailed in my Lucifer series), then one can understand that they would want to alert people to be ready for anything. They are well aware that the Deep State still has the power to try to wreak tremendous destruction (as David alludes to in an update at the end of his article) and consequently don’t have a clear idea of what their reaction will be to this mass arrest scenario.
There is reason to believe that some form of these mass arrests have been planned at one time or another since and even perhaps before 9/11, and have been thwarted by unseen powers of the Deep State or because of prudence based on new information coming in. You can judge for yourself whether this massive and historic action is imminent, but the best way to do this is read David’s epic update, and see how he ties everything together in his inimitable way.

Experts Gather at New UN-hosted Talks To Tackle Issue of Killer Robots
For now it may seem like something to be taken lightly, but with the ever growing AI presence it seems like a sensible move to try and be ahead of any possible ‘robot uprising’, though even though we may discuss it we still may not be able to stop it if (or maybe when) that time may come.
Experts from around the world have gathered in Geneva this week to find a solution to this ever-growing threat.
The idea of a world in which intelligent machines can decide for themselves who lives and who dies might sound like the plot of the latest Terminator movie, yet as research in to artificial intelligence moves ever forward, so too does the potential for so-called ‘killer robots’ – automated weapon systems that can choose who to kill without the need for human intervention.
This week hundreds of experts have gathered at the UN offices in Geneva in an attempt to find a way to define and regulate such systems before it’s too late.
There’s certainly no denying that autonomous weapon systems are still in their infancy, however it is also clear that robots capable of deciding when to pull the trigger are a very bad idea indeed.
Some countries have advocated a total ban on the development of such systems, while others are still unwilling to commit to such legislation – citing the lack of a clear way to define them.
On Monday, Amnesty International’s Rasha Abdul Rahim noted that the technology was outpacing international law and that killer robots are “no longer the stuff of science fiction.”
Getting every participating country to vote unanimously on a solution however has proven a challenge.
“We are coming closer to an agreement on what should be the guiding principles – guiding the behavior of states and guiding the development and deployment of such systems around the world,” said Gill. “And this is not an insignificant outcome.”
To date, a total of 26 countries have backed calls for a blanket ban.
Maybe Goldman Sachs Isn’t So Keen On Crypto, After All
Editor’s note (9/6/18 at 6:10 PM ET): According to one source on Twitter and an article article citing it published by CNBC, Martin Chavez, the CTO of Goldman Sachs, denied the business insider report, calling it “fake news” at Tech Crunch. Futurism reached out to Goldman Sachs for comment. The organization repeated its previous statement on the matter (quoted below); as for what their CFO said, a spokesperson declined to elaborate.
BYE, BYE BITCOIN. Goldman Sachs giveth, and Goldman Sachs taketh away.
In May, the finance institution announced plans to launch what would have been Wall Street’s first bitcoin trading operation. Now, not quite four months later, it seems to have gotten cold feet and will be ditching the plan.
That’s according to a Business Insider report published Wednesday. Goldman hasn’t confirmed the report, but the news still sent the value of bitcoin plummeting.
TOO RISKY. According to Business Insider’s sources, Goldman Sachs had hoped that by now the government would have established regulations to protect banks from some of the risks associated with trading crypto. It hasn’t yet, so for Goldman, the path forward might seem just a bit too treacherous.
Goldman Sachs, however, isn’t saying anything definitive for now. “In response to client interest in various digital products, we are exploring how best to serve them in the space,” said the company via a statement. “At this point, we have not reached a conclusion on the scope of our digital asset offering.”
Soon after the release of the report, the value of bitcoin fell almost 6 percent. However, Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of crypto hedge fund BKCM, is more worried about the long-term impact of Goldman Sachs’ about-face.
“They were not a part of the ecosystem yet, but to the extent that they represent the institutional herd [of mainstream financial institutions], this is a negative,” he told CNBC.
A TEMPORARY SETBACK. If the report is to be believed, Goldman Sachs isn’t giving up on crypto forever — it’s simply moving a trading platform down its list of priorities. If regulatory waters calm, the bank could jump back on the bitcoin bandwagon, and given the U.S. government’s increased interest in crypto, the wait might not be all that long.
