8 signs that...

friday, december 22nd, 2023

The future is here, and if you enjoy being dominated by control freaks you are going to love it.  “Digital identification” is one of the primary areas the globalists are focusing on right now, and as you will see below, the radical changes that are now being proposed are extremely scary.  But most Americans have no idea that any of this is happening.  Instead, many of them are obsessing over the relatively meaningless dramas that our corporate news outlets are constantly pushing.  Meanwhile, the globalists are achieving their goals at lightning speed, and there is hardly any resistance at all.  The following are 8 signs that the futuristic control freak agenda of the globalists is rapidly moving forward…

[FULL TITLE: "8 Signs That The Futuristic Control Freak Agenda Of The Globalists Is Rapidly Moving Forward."]

Leftists & liberals are like Christmas Tree lights: they all hang together, half don't work, and the ones that do, aren't very bright.

#1 Starting in September, the EU will “mandate” that all member states offer a “digital identity wallet” to all of their citizens and businesses…

The European Union will mandate digital identity under eIDAS 2.0, which will go into effect in September 2023 and ensure all Member States offer a digital identity wallet (DIW) to citizens and businesses. According to the European Commission, “At least 80% of citizens should be able to use a digital ID solution to access key public services by 2030.”

#2 A system of “digital fingerprints” for Americans has suddenly become Barack Obama’s biggest issue

Former President Barack Obama suggested in a new interview the development of “digital fingerprints” to combat misinformation and distinguish between true and misleading news for consumers.

Obama sat down with his former White House senior adviser David Axelrod for a conversation on the latter’s podcast, “The Axe Files,” on CNN Audio. During the interview, Axelrod noted he’s seen “misinformation, disinformation, [and] deepfakes” targeting Obama.

#3 A UN policy brief that you can find right here is proposing a global system of digital identification that is linked to our bank accounts

Digital IDs linked with bank or mobile money accounts can improve the delivery of social protection coverage and serve to better reach eligible beneficiaries. Digital technologies may help to reduce leakage, errors and costs in the design of social protection programmes.

#4 The World Health Organization has adopted “the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification” and plans to transform it into a “global system”

In June 2023, WHO will take up the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification to establish a global system that will help facilitate global mobility and protect citizens across the world from on-going and future health threats, including pandemics. This is the first building block of the WHO Global Digital Health Certification Network (GDHCN) that will develop a wide range of digital products to deliver better health for all.

“Building on the EU’s highly successful digital certification network, WHO aims to offer all WHO Member States access to an open-source digital health tool, which is based on the principles of equity, innovation, transparency and data protection and privacy,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “New digital health products in development aim to help people everywhere receive quality health services quickly and more effectively”.

#5 Federal agencies in the United States have been purchasing massive amounts of information about U.S. citizens from data brokers, and we are being warned that such information could potentially be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming”

Federal agencies are secretly accumulating mountains of data that could be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming” of American citizens.

That allegation doesn’t come from a pink-haired civil-liberties fanatic — it’s in a new report for the nation’s chief spymaster, Avril Haines.

#6 It has been revealed that the Pentagon has been using very creepy online tools in order to “covertly track, locate and identify anyone expressing dissent or even dissatisfaction with the actions of the U.S. military and its leadership”…

In a shocking report published by The Intercept on June 17, details have emerged of a U.S. national security surveillance strategy to covertly track, locate and identify anyone expressing dissent or even dissatisfaction with the actions of the U.S. military and its leadership.

The measures, undertaken by the Army Protective Services Battalion, fall under their remit of safeguarding top generals from “assassination, kidnapping, injury or embarrassment.”

#7 As I discussed yesterday, the UN has developed a global fact-checking system known as “iVerify” in conjunction with big tech companies and Soros-funded organizations.  The goal is to be able to police “disinformation” and “hate speech” all over the planet

The United Nations has unveiled an “automated” fact-checking service to counter so-called disinformation and hate speech on the internet in a project partnered with Big-Tech and Soros-funded organisations.

In response to what they brand as “online information pollution”, which they claim is a “global challenge”, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched its iVerify platform to counter alleged disinformation and hate speech online.

#8 The IMF is publicly admitting that it is constructing “a global CBDC platform” for all of the national central bank digital currencies that will soon be rolled out…

During a presentation at a conference in Morocco, Kristalina Georgievahe the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced that the global body is “working hard on the concept of a global CBDC platform.”

Georgieva declared that Central Bank Digital Currencies need to be interoperable between countries, noting “If we are to be successful, CBDCs could not be fragmented national propositions.”

“To have transactions more efficient and fairer, we need systems that connect countries,” Georgieva continued, adding “In other words, we need interoperability.”

If you can read through that entire list without becoming extremely alarmed, I don’t know if there is any hope for you.

The globalists are building a worldwide digital control grid which would potentially give them unprecedented power over the lives of every man, woman and child on the entire planet.

Under such a system, if you insist on being a rebel, your access to the digital system could be revoked completely.

What would you do then?

How would you survive if you could not buy, sell, get a job or open a bank account?

The extremely advanced technology that we possess today has allowed us to do a lot of really good things, but it also has the potential to be used to impose tyranny on a global scale.

We must resist these changes that the globalists are trying to impose on us.

Unfortunately, most Americans are not even talking about these changes, and that is because the mainstream media is telling them to focus on other things.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee and breakfast, took two 50mg Tramadol and a 300mg Gabapentin for lower back/hip/buttock/thigh pains, fired-up the Win-7 Pentium HP desktop to let 32 million lines of code load, had a couple smokes in the cool garage and checked the coming day's errands checklist.

It was a cold, damp 29° start to the morning, but at least it wasn't snowing. Darn. I fired-up the furnace to take the chill off, and scanned the news and weather sites. I needed to get my daily Talk Radio fix: "Chris Stigall Show LIVE" from 6-9a, and then the "Chris Plante Show LIVE" 9-12noon, and Rob Carson Show LIVE 12-3p.

I left for the Market at 11a, and traffic as heavy, as it always is on Fridays. I picked-up my order at Pasta Plus, and got another from York BBQ in the next booth/stand, so I'm set for the weekend and next week. Getting out of the massive Market's parking lot, into heavy traffic, was dicey but quickly done and I was home by 12noon. After a big lunch of several pastas, I tuned into some "CS Show" Podcasts, and crashed on the LR couch for a few hours. Finally back up, and after dinner, I watched Discovery's "Gold Rush" until 1a, and called it quits.

Up at 8a on Saturday, to a sunny, 29° start, I upped the heat, made coffee, took the 2 pain pills, fired-up the desktop, and had a couple smokes in the cold garage. I tuned into some podcasts from the "CS Show" that I'd missed over the past week, and a humorous video that ppc had sent, until around 1p. No pressing errands to do, I decided to just stay home; any pending stuff can be done another day. After some more "prep" inventory work in the basement, I came up for some dinner, watched the History channel's "Ancient Aliens" marathon until midnight, and unplugged.

Up at 7:30a on Sunday, to a very foggy, cool 45°, *Poor Air Quality*, and morning drizzle on-the-way, with heavy rain coming later this afternoon, a ***DENSE FOG ADVISORY*** and an ***AREAL FLOOD WATCH*** already posted on the weather sites. Swell. The light rain arrived around 3p. By then, Sherry and I were riding in her new-lease Hyundai sedan (she had an= Tucson SUV previously) over to the Galleria area, to do some Christmas shopping at the nearby Christmas Tree Hill store. Nice car! Her shopping done, we came back to my place for s short while, as the skies opened-up and the rain came forth. After Sherry left at 3:30, the rain got much worse, and by 9p, it was torrential, as we had 4-5 weeks ago, to the day.

*** FLOOD WATCH! ***
• WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues to be possible.
• WHERE...A portion of central Pennsylvania, including the following areas, Adams, Columbia, Cumberland, Dauphin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montour, Northern Lycoming, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Snyder, Southern Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga, Union and York.
• WHEN...Through Monday evening.
• IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Flooding may occur in poor drainage and urban areas.
• ADDITIONAL DETAILS... - Rainfall totals of 2 to 3 inches are forecast across the watch area. Locally higher amounts 4+ inches are very possible, particularly in elevated terrain with southeast exposure. The heaviest rain is expected to move from south to north across the watch area late tonight through early Monday morning. Rain will decrease in intensity and come to an end through Monday afternoon. - http://www.weather.gov/safety/flood
• You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared TO GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGER, should flooding develop.

I had dinner, watched Discovery's "Homestead Rescue" until 11:30, and called it "Yankee Doodle".

Up at 6a on Monday, 0-Dark-Thirty as (almost) usual, 49° and it was still raining, greatly increased wind, with several hours to go before the stormfront passed and moved-up into New England, according to the maps. I made coffee, had a smoke and tuned into the "CS Show", from 6-9. I opened the garage door, while sitting and having a smoke, and it wasn't cold at all, since the rain brought some "warmer" weather along for the trip.

Time for a System Back-Up, as with every Monday morning, and Win-97 Pro x64 did it effortlessly. After taking the two 50mg Tramadol painkillers, I usually wait 2hrs or so, until they're fully-absorbed into the blood system, before having breakfast. 40-50mph winds followed the stormfront, and wind warnings appeared on the weather-related sites. I had some paperwork to finish-up, had breakfast and email to scan and answer some of it. I left at 12:15p, for some errands at points south of East York. After 3 stops, I was back home by 2p, and tuned into the "RC Show" while trying to p[print out Sherry's a Sis' Christmas cards, but the 2009 HP D1600 DeskJet wasn't cooperating with colors, despite all-new cartridges and a thorough exam by the "HP Scan & Print DR" program.

Unofficial rainfall total: 3.67", but subject to revision.

In just 2 days, we'll be at Midwinter, the Shortest Day, the Longest Night, also called the Winter Solstice: Thursday, December 21st.

I had a large dinner of fresh-grilled Salmon, Wild Rice & Broccoli, watched History's "Ancient Aliens" marathon until 1a, and unplugged.

I slept-in until 8a on Tuesday, a cold 23°, windy, snow squalls approaching, morning, so I fired-up the furnace. After starting coffee, I opened the desktop, had a couple of smokes in the garage while the coffee brewed, and kept bundled-up in the über-warm Turkish Bathrobe. I had a couple errands to do after the 2-of-the-3 Talk Radio shows were over; just after 12noon. I left at 12:30p, made all 3 nearby stops, ran into some snow squalls coming east from the Midwest, and was back home by 1.

Are you ready for an economic system crash, maybe the biggest we've ever seen? I am, and I'm not. I'm super-well "prepped", but am not ready to give up on America, just yet. But, here's a few things to consider: Inflation, Pick a number over 10%, Balance of payments with foreign countries, Treasury bond yield curve inverted, Labor participation rate down, Federal government deficit and debt, Not to mention a couple of wars and more to get hot (Persia, Yemen, Africa), Supply chain disruptions, possible food riots, Everything is going to get REAL... real fast. And we've been thru these: 2009 -- The Great Depression Ahead, 2011 -- The Great Crash Ahead, 2016 -- The Great Gold Bust Ahead, 2017 -- The Great Bubble Burst of 2017-2019. Something bad, this way comes...

After lunch and a short nap, I got some light condo chores done, rescheduled my Thursday eye dr's app't to January 3rd, skipped the news, had dinner and watched some TV. Another "NBC" ("Nothing But Crap") night, so I wrapped it up early.

Up at 6a on Wednesday, to another cold 23°, but clear morning. I did the usual routines -- heat, coffee, smokes, computer, news etc -- and it took a while to get the garage warmed-up. I scanned the weather and news, and was amazed that the Colorado vs Trump bullshit, political "verdict" of 213 pages, is barely being contested, yet, but very widely reported by the leftist DNC-Media, but I repeat myself. Trump was never charged with "obstruction"; therefore, he can't be convicted of it.

In sum: Democrats in the Colorado Supreme Court ruled last night that President Trump’s name will not be listed on the Colorado ballot in 2024. Ironically, these far-left justices used a post-Civil War Amendment that no Democrats voted for at the time, to block the leading opposition candidate from the ballot. This was not the first time Democrats pulled this trick during a national election for President of thee United States. As Randy DeSoto reported at Western Journal back in November -- The last time Democrats pulled such a stunt was in the presidential election of 1860, when Republican nominee Abraham Lincoln’s name did not appear on most Southern states’ ballots. Abraham Lincoln was still able to win the election with a plurality of the popular vote in the rest of the country. The Democrat plot failed.

I lounged around until 11a, had lunch, got ready for the day, and Sherry at 1p. We drove over to Flinchbaugh's Orchard & Farm Market, did some food shopping, brought back loads of goodies, talked for a short while and Sherry left to get home before dark, in her new lease Hyundai 'Elantra LTD' car. I had dinner, watched Discovery's "Expedition Unknown", "Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch" and "Expedition X" until 12:30a, and unplugged.

Up at 7a on Thursday, I fired-up the heat, made coffee, had a couple Marlboros in the slowly-warming garage, and tuned into the "CS Show", from 6-9. At 30°, and forecast to reach 45°, it was a sunny, relatively clear morning, I needed to sign and get some important WF financial paperwork into the FedEx system, so I Googled their drop boxes in East York. So I have 3 errands to get done right after 12noon.

After working on my ancient, but formerly-trusty, 2009 HP DeskJet D1660 Printer for almost 2hrs, I gave-up, ordered a new one on eBay, and left at 1p. The area had over-clouded, and it looked and felt like snow. False alarm, with a high of 41°. Errands done by 2p, I got home and unloaded, did another load of laundry, and watched History's "American Pickers" for a few hours. It was dark by 4:45p, and... MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

A Decade of Emulation at The Internet Archive.

Ten years ago, the Internet Archive introduced the ability to emulate retro software within a web browser. Since then, 250,000 emulated software pieces have lived in the Archive—an achievement reflecting the evolution of emulation technology, starting with JavaScript and advancing to complex programs via Emscripten. The project, involving over a thousand hours of volunteer work, led to millions of visitors exploring old software and games, as well as the creation of specialized collections that offer a window into computer and software history. As it marks its ten-year milestone, the Internet Archive plans to expand its collection and preserve historical software for future generations. A blog on this achievement highlights contributors and showcases the Emularity framework, making running various emulators on archive.org possible. Notable additions include Hypercard Stacks, classic electronic handheld games, and calculators.
