CAN YOU TRUST GOOGLE WITH YOUR IDENTIFICATION AND PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Google-dbeThere is no doubt in my mind that the original Google ethos, “Don’t Be Evil,” used initially as a motto and then in Google’s Code of Ethics, no longer exists.

It died in October 2015 when Google was restructured into Alphabet, and "Do the right thing" replaced it as the corporate motto. Likewise, Google’s billion-dollar revenue stream comes from collecting and merchandising your personal information and behavior to advertisers, researchers, and governments. Google scans your email, documents, and stored data to either "improve your user experience" or “prevent illegal or objectionable behavior." Google's right to use your data is embedded in their unilateral. take it or leave it, Terms of Service agreement.

We use information to help improve the safety and reliability of our services. This includes detecting, preventing, and responding to fraud, abuse, security risks, and technical issues that could harm Google, our users, or the public.

We use different technologies to process your information for these purposes. We use automated systems that analyze your content to provide you with things like customized search results, personalized ads, or other features tailored to how you use our services. And we analyze your content to help us detect abuse such as spam, malware, and illegal content. We also use algorithms to recognize patterns in data. For example, Google Translate helps people communicate across languages by detecting common language patterns in phrases you ask it to translate. <Source>

Storing your information is not the same as search and involves privacy rights to non-public personal financial and medical information.

Are you willing to let Google secure and manage your identity documents, financial information, and health information, all of which can be accessed by the government or anyone else with a subpoena without your knowledge or permission? Are you willing to expose your data – especially stored value products like Bitcoin – to a third party? Or possibly subject your account to unconstitutional monitoring or even access denial or outright confiscation to satisfy judgments, taxes, or other government fees?

Google introduces new wallet with support for digital IDs and vaccine cards

Google will be integrating digital ID cards and proof of vaccination cards into a new Google Wallet app that's set to be released in a few weeks.
Sameer Samat, Google's Vice President of Product Management, said the tech giant is working with US states and governments around the world to bring digital IDs to Google Wallet and that driver's licenses will be the first type of ID to be digitized in the app.

[OCS: Imagine your vulnerability while getting your credentials and information into a wallet by allowing a third party to scan, upload, process, and then download data into your wallet? How many of these companies have been internally compromised or externally breached?]

Google's embrace of digital IDs and vaccine cards follows Apple introducing the tech last year when it partnered with several US states and the Transport Security Administration (TSA) to digitize driver's licenses and then stuck taxpayers with part of the bill for the rollout.

When it started digitizing driver's licenses, Apple insisted that users could present their ID without needing to unlock, show, or hand over their device. Samat made similar claims at Google I/O ‘22 and said users can share information from driver's licenses that are stored in Google Wallet without having to give the phone to another person by either using near-field communication (NFC) or a quick response (QR code).

[OCS: Surreptitious access to your device to access your information. What keeps hackers from grabbing other data at the same time?]

Digital vaccine cards have also started to be normalized by two of the world's biggest phone manufacturers – Apple and Samsung.

As these powerful tech companies embrace digital IDs and vaccine cards, national governments and influential international organizations are also pushing for greater adoption of this tech. <Source>

[OCS: You can be sure that governments are not pushing digitalization for our convenience or benefit.]

Bottom line…

Are you willing to sacrifice your information security for a bit of convenience? If someone can access your credentials without contact, so can evildoers.

We are so screwed.

DEFENDING AMERICA: OUR ENEMIES ARE WINNING

Who are we as a nation?

As far as I can tell, the United States is engaged in a civil war being played by rules established by the Communists, first the Russians and followed by the Communist Chinese. It is a war being played by both major political parties who agree on only one thing – not the safety and security of America or the welfare of its citizens but gaining and maintaining raw political power and the continuation of self-serving special interest cash flows.

The techniques and tactics of subversion and conquest are well known to the combatants and their propagandists in the mainstream media – the majority of whom refuse to inform the Americans that we are losing the war.

The enemy at our border…

ILLEGAL-ALIENS-1

Perhaps I should say non-border. There was a time when illegal aliens would hide or run from the U.S. Border Patrol. No longer! Today, under the Obama/Biden regime, illegal aliens seek out Border Patrol agents and voluntarily surrender to begin their government-paid journey to the heartland of America.

A few facts about Mexico:

(1)  Mexico is a corrupt country run by oligarchs and criminal drug cartels willing to kill anyone who stands in their way.

(2)  Mexico cannot protect its unarmed citizens, most of whom have been domesticated into subservience.

(3)  They are communists! Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, known as AMLO, is a communist.

American Maoists Building Support for Mexican Revolutionary Movement: Huge Implications for US National Security

The United States’ main Maoist organization, Liberation Road, is developing support networks for Mexico’s ruling leftist party MORENA and its leader, Mexico’s socialist president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (popularly known as AMLO).

Liberation Road sees Mexico under its present leadership as a major force for the revolutionary transformation of the United States. With a population of around 128 million, a communist Mexico, sharing a 2,000-mile border with this country, would become a national security nightmare of epic proportions. America’s Maoists are working hard to make that nightmare a reality.

If AMLO and MORENO take Mexico’s 128 million down the Cuba/Venezuela road as it seems they intend to do, the consequences could turn into the worst national security crisis this country has ever faced.

Venezuela’s Marxist-driven economic and political crises have driven more than 2 million refugees into neighboring countries. If AMLO and MORENO succeed in driving Mexico to economic ruin, we could see 10s of millions of refugees clamoring to cross the border into the United States. Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, even Florida, could be engulfed by a human tidal wave like nothing we have ever seen before. This chaos would be a major advance for the Mexican, U.S., and world revolutionary movements.

The current flooding of the border by 10s of then thousands of illegal immigrants a month could be seen as a dress rehearsal for a possible human tsunami currently building in Mexico. <Source>

Just Because You’re Paranoid, It Doesn’t Mean They’re Not After You

It’s a good thing Loudon has such a naturally soothing speaking voice, because the topics he discusses in “The Communist Connections Behind What’s Happening at the U.S. Border” are deeply, deeply troubling. Unless you’ve been living under a rock or only vote for Democrats, you know what’s happening at America’s southern border. There’s no way to avoid the total chaos of migrants illegally flooding into the country for the last nine months, unless you want to avoid it and plan to live as if Twitter is real life. Even foreign countries know what’s going on down in (mostly) Texas and Arizona, with the few friends we have left probably wondering if we’re okay (we’re not), while our growing list of enemies salivate at the idea of just how easy it is these days to cross into the United States undetected.

One would be hard-pressed to illustrate how our southern border is not effectively, at this moment, dissolved, even though the Trump administration clearly showed that the constant tide of illegal immigration could be effectively fought and even stopped. That AMLO was willing to enforce Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy during the previous administration proves that he is capable of keeping migrants from crossing into the United States. He isn’t now because he simply doesn’t want to.

t’s bleaker than that, though, as Loudon explains that the Democratic Socialists of America, which has six members in Congress, far more members at the state level, has a firm grip among unions, and has even wormed its way into churches, is signing on to the SPF. Despite their many claims that Democratic Socialism isn’t really socialism, it absolutely is giving AMLO an ally within our borders and our government for what he wants to do. Loudon reiterates that what he wants to do is turn Mexico into a fully socialist country before reminding the viewers of the tragedy of Venezuela. It took less than 20 years for socialism to cripple what was once the wealthiest country in South America, to the point where a roll of toilet paper is now unaffordable to ordinary Venezuelans. The current U.S. supply chain crisis is giving Americans a look at what Venezuela is like, though at least—at the moment—we can be reasonably sure at some point we’ll have chicken on the shelves again. <Source>

 

The $40+ BILLION diversion…

House passes $40 billion Ukraine aid package

The House emphatically approved a fresh $40 billion Ukraine aid package Tuesday as lawmakers beefed up President Joe Biden’s initial request, signaling a magnified, bipartisan commitment to thwart Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bloody three-month-old invasion.

The measure sailed to passage by a lopsided 368-57 margin, providing $7 billion more than Biden’s request from April and dividing the increase evenly between defense and humanitarian programs. The bill would give Ukraine military and economic assistance, help regional allies, replenish weapons the Pentagon has shipped overseas and provide $5 billion to address global food shortages caused by the war’s crippling of Ukraine’s normally robust production of many crops.

The measure was backed by every voting Democrat and by nearly 3 out of 4 Republicans. House debate reflected a perspective, shared broadly by both parties, that the U.S. has even more at stake than standing by Ukraine. <Source>

WTF? Why are we willing to protect Ukraine’s borders and provide humanitarian aid to its people, while ignoring our Southern Border and while American citizens are struggling with $6 gas and a shortage of baby formula on store shelves.

We are witnessing the use of the Cloward and Piven strategy on a mass scale to deplete our resources to bring about a systemic collapse of our institutions and safety nets, followed by an authoritarian regime promising to restore order from this man-made chaos – often at the point of a gun.

Putting a face on corrupt political leadership…

The names that come readily to mind are House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee Mark Warner (D-VA), the United States Attorney General Merrick Garland, the Director of the FBI Christopher Wray, The Director of the CIA William J. Burns, and the entirely of the racist anti-America Black Caucus. And, of course, no list would be complete without the leading chameleon, Lindsey Graham (?-SC).

Followed by thousands of elected, appointed, and employed unionized bureaucrats.

But, most of all, it is the leadership of the two major parties who knowingly presented America with deeply flawed candidates and characters rather than qualified and ethical candidates to serve as representatives of “We the People.” Blame the compromised corporatist media for abandoning journalistic ethics and serving as propagandists of the Democrat Party.

Bottom line…

In the final analysis, our representatives have been bought off by our enemies – sadly, using the funds extorted from those taxpayers whom they profess to protect and serve.

To say that we are being screwed by those we trust is an understatement.

I am unsure of the outcome, just as I am unsure of whom we can trust. Historically, it was the American people who were the bulwark against Communist tyranny. But, as I have noted, our nation’s leadership is allowing the core values of our nation and its culture of exceptionalism to be changed right before our eyes with a hoard of hostile invaders, many themselves victims of oppressive political leadership. With more loyalty to their country and culture than the United States they have entered illegally.

As far as I can tell, the only four actions available to ordinary Americans are: one, to keep and bear arms; two, to strongly inculcate American core values in our children; three, to take over politics at the local level and push reform upward; and four, to punish the subverted Democrat Party and their “go along to get along” RINO (Republican In Name Only) friends.

The government estimates that over 1 million foreign nationals will swarm over the border this summer without being vetted, or tested for COVID or other communicable diseases. Many of them are criminals. With no consequences for breaking U.S. immigration law.

We have an opportunity to start in the 2022 mid-term elections which may be as compromised as the stolen 2016 and 2020 elections. Yes, stolen – ask Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, or even Georgia’s Stacy Abrahams about ‘stolen” elections.

Blame yourself, if you sit back and hand our exceptional nation to our enemies who will enslave us with soft – then hard – tyranny.

VOTE!
