Roku’s 2016 Privacy Policy

Why do they need all this info on Roku owners? From the Roku privacy policy:

Information you provide Roku through the Roku Services includes, for example, your name, email address, postal address, billing and shipping information, product purchase information, credit card and other payment data, product registration information, and demographics. If you connect with Roku’s accounts on third party social networking sites, we may also collect information about your social networking accounts, for example, your name, user name, or handle.

Why do they need to (or even want to) know the user names I use for social media accounts? This is under the heading of “Information you provide.” They also collect the information you provide about others:

We also collect the personal information of other people, for example, if you provide email addresses of friends for referrals or postal addresses of recipients for gift purchases.

And here’s what they say they do with all the data:

We may also combine information you provide with data we collect automatically (as further described below) and with data we receive from third parties. We may also associate information you provide with information we collect about you from different devices, browsers and platforms.

The information they collect automatically:

We may automatically collect information related to your use of Roku Sites – for example [which implies they collect more than this], we collect your computer’s or mobile device’s operating system type and version, Internet Protocol (IP) address, mobile device ID, access times, browser type and language, and the websites you visited before coming to a Roku Site. We also use cookies and related technologies such as web beacons to better understand your needs, remember your preferences, and to provide targeted advertising.

All that so I can better enjoy their advertising? If they want to increase my Roku enjoyment, why don’t they stop channel providers from making me watch a 30 second commercial before I can see a 15 second film clip? Anyway, there’s another paragraph regarding information Roku “automatically and regularly” collects, such as your IP address, info about your Roku device (including where you bought it), the name of your local wi-fi network, and devices connected to your Roku. Again, why do they need all this?

If it isn’t bad enough that Roku is collecting information, so are the channel developers, who apparently have their own privacy policies:

providers of the Roku Direct Publisher Channels may also collect certain information through their channels as described in their respective privacy policies.

Then there are those “third party” collectors of information:

Third parties who provide us with analytics services for the Roku Services may also automatically collect some of the information described above, including, for example, IP address, access times, browser type and language, device type, device identifiers and Wi-Fi information.

Other third parties, including channel providers, advertisers and ad-related services, may also automatically collect information about you through the Roku Services and Third Party Channels, including personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites, devices, online channels and applications when you use our services…

Some third parties help us and others associate your activities across the browsers and devices you use, or that your household uses, for retargeting, cross-device advertising, analytics, and measurement purposes. Some third parties, such as Google, may also collect information on behalf of Roku and others for online advertising purposes and to provide Roku and others statistics about users of the Roku Services.

From Roku third party partner Google, regarding the information they collect:

When you visit a website that uses our advertising products (like AdSense), social products (like the +1 button), or analytics tools (Google Analytics), your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google. This includes, for example, the web address of the page that you’re visiting and your IP address. We may also set cookies on your browser or read cookies that are already there.

So Google sees and collects every web page you’ve visited since you last deleted your browser’s cookies. In addition, from Google’s privacy policy:

We collect information in the following ways:

Information you give us.

Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video on YouTube, visit a website that uses our advertising services, or view and interact with our ads and content.

We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Google may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Google Account…

details of how you used our service, such as your search queries…

telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls…

When you use Google services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide Google with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers…

We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches…

Google is also reading your email:

Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.

Who has access to your Google info? Who knows?

Google processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live…

We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us…

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Google if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary…

We restrict access to personal information to Google employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us.

If that’s not bad enough, what if Google goes out of business?

If Google is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Doesn’t that make you feel better? All your personal information (what is there that Google doesn’t know about you?), including how, when, and where you watch programs on your Roku is potentially public knowledge.

As mentioned in my 2015 post on Roku’s privacy policy, which attempts to explain some of the data collecting technology, and again included in Roku’s 2016 privacy policy:

Each Roku Device has unique identifiers, including a unique, non-permanent identifier called Roku Identifiers for Advertisers (RIDAs)…We may use RIDAs and information associated with RIDAs to try to understand your interests…We may supplement that information with information collected from the Roku Services, Third Party Channels, and websites, mobile apps, devices, platforms and data sources of third parties…We may also associate information collected using RIDAs with other information that identifies you, your household or your devices to personalize the advertising you see on third party websites, mobile apps, devices and platforms and other Roku Devices.

Channel providers, third party advertisers, ad measurement providers, and ad services may also use RIDAs and other information they collect about you from your Roku Devices, Roku Direct Publisher Channels, and Third Party Channels for their own advertising purposes…certain third parties with whom Roku has a business relationship (such as Nielsen and Comscore) may collect information about what you view on Roku Devices (including when you view content within a Roku Direct Publisher Channel or a Third Party Channel)

It seems Roku really likes to share:

Roku may also share information with third parties whose services are integral to the use of the Roku Devices. For example, we may share information collected from the Roku Devices with Third Party Channel providers and Roku Direct Publisher Channel content providers. The use of data by such third parties is subject to their respective privacy policies.

Roku uses third parties (including contractors and service providers) to provide services for us and to help with our operations, which may require that they access and use your information…

We may share some or all of your information with our current or future “affiliates”…

Roku may also share your information with others in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets to another company.

In case you’re worried about how Roku stores all that personal info they have on you (is that a major concern after discovering how much they spread it around?):

Roku uses industry-standard methods of securing its electronic databases of personal information. However, you should know that no company, including Roku, can fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information…

Roku is a global company with affiliates, varied business processes, management structures and technical systems that cross borders. Information collected by Roku or on our behalf may be stored on your Roku Devices, on your mobile device if you use the Roku Mobile App, or on our servers, and may be transferred to, accessed from, or stored and processed in, the United States, EU member state countries, India, the Philippines and Costa Rica, and any other country where Roku or its service providers maintain facilities or call centers, including jurisdictions that may not have data privacy laws that provide protections equivalent to those provided in your home country.

I can’t believe I’m going to continue to use my Roku (and all my electronic devices) after knowing all this. I’ve become a fool for the sake of convenience and entertainment. Is this the point where you realize you’ve given up on the notion of privacy?

Alt news site suspended because of article on Podesta bros?

Tried to access this link to The Daily Sheeple, which was on Steve Quayle’s website:


And found this:


Coincidence? The site belongs to The Daily Sheeple. Other sites, perhaps not as popular, seem to have the same info.

Wait! While writing this, the site came back up. Here’s part of the excellent analysis within the article:

One is a picture of Hillary campaign chair John with his brother Tony Podesta, one of the top lobbyists in DC; the other is of a police sketch made of men wanted in the 2007 abduction of Madeleine McCann.


Then there’s this, a screenshot from the article:


According to The Daily Sheeple:

a DDoS [denial of service] attack was reportedly initiated against sleuths on 4Chan at the same time new information on the McCann case was being released.

A couple more screenshots:


To top it all off, We Are Change is reporting that Twitter actually went offline for 20 minutes after Tweets about these pictures went viral.


In addition, it seems Madeleine and her family were vacationing in a place where the Podesta family is known to vacation. The Daily Sheeple also has this: Disturbing Infographic Lays Out Damning Evidence of Podesta Pedophile Ring Case

Here is a photo of the missing girl, Madeleine McCann:


Is it possible there’s something special about this girl, perhaps genetically?

The Podestas are a strange bunch. See this Washington Post article about Tony’s taste in art. He has an eight-foot-tall color image of a naked, dead Jesus and in his bedroom “multiple color photos…of naked teenagers.” From Weapon of Mass Distraction, More Creepy Podesta Art:

This spring, TIME noticed another interesting piece hanging in John Podesta’s office.

On the wall in his office at Hillary Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters, campaign chairman John Podesta has an oil painting on loan from his lobbyist brother, who is an avid art collector. The image shows two men hunched over a dining room table, bearing knives and forks. On the table lays a man in a suit, who looks vaguely like Podesta. “It’s better to be the guy with the fork,” Podesta quips to his colleagues, if they ask about the image, “than the guy on the table.”

The image:


Who are these people, the Podestas and anyone who would hire them, like the Clintons?


Why the meltdown of Hillary supporters?

I don’t understand why people have had such abnormal reactions to her loss. Is it possible they’re victims of a mass delusion? Or do they share some sort of personality disorder? What kind of personality disorder could make them all vote for Hillary?

Before getting to that, let’s be clear that the Purple Revolution protests are staged. See, for example, the following short video showing the many buses that brought in protestors (H/T ZeroHedge):

And it’s now common knowledge that protesters were paid to protest Trump during the campaign and we know that George Soros is funding U.S. protests. But that doesn’t explain the mass meltdown.

In March of this year, students at Emory University in Atlanta were provided “emergency counseling” after they discovered the following words written in chalk on a campus sidewalk: “Trump 2016″ and “Vote Trump.” The reaction of some of the students was far from normal. Could they have been victims of some kind of mind programming experiment, which caused the writing to trigger bizarre reactions? Part of the story, from Newsweek:

When the words “Trump 2016” and other chalked messages supporting the Republican presidential front-runner appeared Monday around the Emory University campus in Atlanta, students say they immediately felt threatened. Within hours, they launched a protest.

“We are in pain,” one student said at a rally, according to The Emory Wheel, a student newspaper. “I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,” a second student reportedly said…

“I legitimately feared for my life,” a freshman who identifies as Latino told The Daily Beast. Another student told the publication, “Some of us were expecting shootings. We feared walking alone.”

That’s just weird. The emotionally-injured students met with the university’s president, who publicly stated:

“During our conversation, they voiced their genuine concern and pain in the face of this perceived intimidation…. I cannot dismiss their expression of feelings and concern as motivated only by political preference or over-sensitivity.”

One of the markings:  trump-chalk-markIf it wasn’t over-sensitivity or political preference, what then? Were they lying, like other phony, paid anti-Trump protesters? Or are they truly victims – of mind control through mass media, academic experiments, or – what?

Here are a couple of videos of Hillary supporters in meltdown. What can you make of their behavior? Whatever the source of it, they are the scary people in this country. They talk about peace and love but inside is darkness. Others know what they really are and it contributed to Hillary’s defeat. See also the reports of Hillary’s reaction to her loss; for example, Hillary ‘physically violent’ after losing: Clinton had to be briefly restrained after trying to attack own staff. See also her reactions to every instance in which she does not get her way; as a recent example, Clinton Meltdown At Surprise Question – Vulgar Screams, Thrown Water, Obscenities.

Be forewarned, the first video includes some pretty bad language.

Why Hillary lost, part 1: Her Comrades

Before listing some of Hillary’s comrades (those with whom she shares interests and/or activities), let’s remember that she labeled an untold number of Americans as “deplorables.” From a Time transcript:

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?


The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it…Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.



Now, onto the types of Americans she prefers.

George Soros, a self-confessed megalomaniac who, in a Sixty Minutes interview, admitted his enjoyment over stealing his neighbors’ property during World War 2:

KROFT:  Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS:  Yes.  That’s right.  Yes.

KROFT:  I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years.  Was it difficult?

SOROS:  No, not at all.  Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT:  No feelings of guilt?

SOROS:  No, only feelings of absolute power.

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”

A small portion of an article from The New American:
When Soros was a teenager under Hitler, he and his family helped to confiscate land from his Jewish neighbors. He indicated in an interview much later in his life that he did not feel guilty for it…My mother was quite anti-Semitic, and ashamed of being Jewish.

Known as “the man who broke the bank of England,” Soros prides himself on this billion-dollar endeavor.

In The Shadow Party, Richard Poe relates:

He famously shorted the British pound in 1992, wagering $10 billion on a drop in its value…The British pound was devalued, launching a tsunami of financial turmoil from Tokyo to Rome.

In 1997, the Malaysian Prime Minister accused Soros of doing the same to the Malaysian currency. In Thailand, Soros was labeled “an economic war criminal [who] sucks the blood from the people.”

In the book The Shadow Party, writers David Horowitz and Richard Poe outline a step-by-step system Soros used to bring about regime collapse…George Soros has openly admitted that the United States needs an “orderly decline of the dollar” in order to bring about the new world order, in which the “United States should find its place.”

The 60 Minutes interview:

(H/T Steve for the link & for finding the video, The Truth Division)
 Soros funded Hillary

Hungarian-born billionaire hedge fund manager is one of the largest donors to Clinton and the Democratic Party

He funds political revolutions:

Billionaire George Soros spent $33MILLION bankrolling Ferguson demonstrators to create ‘echo chamber’ and drive national protests

Rose Revolution:

Consisting of twenty days worth of protests, the Revolution triggered new presidential and parliamentary elections in Georgia [the country], which established the United National Movement as the dominant ruling party.

From Wikipedia:

The United National Movement and its partners in the opposition played a central role in the November 2003 political crisis that ended in the forced resignation of President Shevardnadze. The opposition parties strongly contested the outcome of the November 2, 2003 parliamentary elections, which local and international observers criticised for numerous irregularities. After the fall of Shevardnadze, the party joined forces with the United Democrats and the Union of National Solidarity to promote Saakashvili as the principal opposition candidate in the presidential elections of January 4, 2004, which he won by an overwhelming majority.

The Clintons And Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution


Clinton spokespeople claimed it [Bill & Hill wearing purple] was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

Then there’s Saul Alinsky, about whom Hillary wrote her college thesis, “There Is Only the Fight . . . : An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” Alinsky dedicated his book Rules for Radicals to Lucifer. Among other things, he said:

Last guys don’t finish nice.

Power is not to be crossed; one must respect and obey. Power means strength, whereas love is a human frailty the people mistrust.

It is a world not of angels but of angles, where men speak of moral principles but act on power principles; a world where we are always moral and our enemies always immoral.

Can’t leave out her beloved social protestors. Remember, this is the America and the Americans that Hillary prefers.


‘Gay Pride Week’ in Boston: In-your-face depravity, vulgarity, blasphemy– sponsored by major politicians & corporate America

It’s really about power over us

One didn’t have to be there very long to get a sense of what these kinds of events are really all about. They’re about staging a huge in-your-face gesture of power over anyone with traditional values. Thus, they know they can do anything they want — whether kids or anyone else are watching or not — and we can’t do anything but meekly watch.

Those who, like Hillary, hate Trump’s vision for the U.S. Is this the Soros Purple Revolution?

Also can’t forget her faithful supporters. Can’t imagine why they didn’t help win votes for her.


And her celebrity supporters:

Perry came out on stage to Janet Jackson’s, “Nasty” … which has had a resurgence of late.

Beyonce, Jay Z Headline Star-Studded Hillary Clinton Concert

Beyonce has an “alter-ego” that she calls Sasha Fierce:

[Beyonce] Knowles states that Sasha was in full effect that night and she helps her do things she cannot do when she is by herself. She also describes being taking [sic] over by this spirit and how she channeled it in her body. She says “I remember right before I performed I raised my hands up and it was kind of the first time I felt something else come into me. And I knew that was going to be my coming out night.”beyonce

Beyonce’s hubby, Jay Z:

thouwiltDo what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Aleister Crowley

Then there was the endorsement of the new world order Bush dynasty:

Bush Family Member Tells GOP To SHOVE IT, Supports Hillary Clinton For President

Earlier this year, we saw both George H.W. and George W. endorse Hillary, and now George W.’s daughter has publicly endorsed the Democratic nominee as well.

George W. Bush calls Bill Clinton ‘brother from another mother’

Barbara Bush gushes about Bill Clinton, says he treats George H. W. Bush like a father

Clinton loved the compliment, but joked that “Barbara began to refer to me as her black sheep son.”

The other Bush siblings have also taken a shine to Clinton…

“He’s been incredibly gracious to our dad,” said the former Florida governor. “And if somebody is gracious to our father – he ingratiates himself to us.”

You can see and hear G.H.W. Bush, as POTUS, promote the new world order with the UN as its peacekeepers here:

From Time:

“At least it [a Hillary win] is not going to disgrace the nation on the first day,” a former senior official in the George W. Bush administration said of voting for Clinton. “I don’t support her at all, but Trump is beyond the pale.”

Let’s not forget the other Republicans who preferred Hillary; for example, Paul Ryan:

Paul Ryan: Hillary Clinton Would Have ‘Fixed This Fiscal Mess’

Paul Ryan on Foreign Policy is Closer to Hillary Clinton Than Donald Trump

And this couldn’t have helped either, Hillary Clinton: John McCain’s favorite Democrat?

Sen. John McCain would be “proud” to work with a President Hillary Clinton…Clinton…called McCain, whom she faced in a bid for the Oval Office in 2008, her favorite Republican.

See this list from the left-wing Daily Beast, All of the Top Republicans Voting for Hillary Clinton Instead of Donald Trump to understand that the Republican and Democratic parties are two sides of one coin.

Remember Soros’ Rose Revolution, in which The United National Movement and its partners in the opposition played a central role in the November 2003 political crisis that ended in the forced resignation of President Shevardnadze? The two sides worked together to oust the new President.

Nevertheless, this post is about why Hillary wasn’t elected. One of the main reasons is that most Americans don’t identify with her and her comrades. Think the election results refute this? Did Hillary supporters cheat? (It’s a rhetorical question.)

California man finds dozens of ballots stacked outside home

Jerry Mosna was gardening outside his San Pedro, Calif., home Saturday when he noticed something odd: Two stacks of 2016 ballots on his mailbox.

The 83 ballots, each unused, were addressed to different people, all supposedly living in his elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment…

John Fund, a journalist and co-author with Hans von Spakovsky of the book, “Who’s Counting: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk,” said someone could easily have voted with these ballots using a variety of fake signatures.

“It is doubtful they would have ever been detected,” Fund said.

Always remember the first rule of power tactics; power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. Saul Alinsky

Still no official election results

Back from retirement to address the new wave of rather aggressive mind-attacks from the mainstream media. Just heard a local talking head announce that Facebook employees have decided they need to distinguish “fake” news from “real” news, which seems to be old news because Facebook has been in the censorship business for a long time. But the local station used it to point out the “fact” that Donald Trump did not win the popular vote; however, we do not yet know whether or not that’s true. This is from the National Archives, taken today:


No official results are available. Who has results? Politico, USA Today, Fox News, Wikipedia, ABC, New York Times, get the picture? On the other hand, see this from 70 News:

Final numbers

: : 62,972,226

: 62,277,750

vote 306 232

Update [Nov 11]: Anyone asking where I got the figures, it was from twitter posts. Knowing the Democrat media have been dragging their liberal feet giving Michigan to Trump – finally they did,  with Arizona finally declared two days ago – Trump now has the 309. Except for the twitter posts, the popular vote number still need to be updated in Wikipedia or MSM media – which may take another few days because the liberals are still reeling and recovering from Trump-shock victory. If I’m wrong, I won’t hesitate to change the numbers. It’s the job of the establishment media to tell the people the final numbers when it’s out there already.

Do we believe “real” news outlets, the so-called mainstream media, whose reporters submit their stories to Hillary’s staff before printing them? Or do we consider the work of those who spend hours sifting through information on websites and in documents as they search for the truth?

As for the increased aggression in media propaganda, could that be part of the purple revolution?

11/17/2016 UPDATE on “fake” news, from All News PipeLine:

So, while Facebook and Google have decided to make themselves the arbitrators of “truth,” meaning anything that does not fit their political ideology, Twitter has begun a mass ban on conservatives, labeling them “alt-right”…

Facebook was recently subjected to scandal when former employees told Gizmodo that they routine suppressed conservative news from their trending news feeds, while they were told to artificially “inject” other stories into that news feed.

Twitter has also been subject to scrutiny for randomly banning high profile conservatives from their platform as well as “shadowbanning” politically inconvenient users…

Google has previously been accused of censoring search results of Hillary Clinton’s health, and other news that was negative to Clinton. It has also been reported that Google was “directly engaged” in the Hillary Clinton campaign.


Media attacking conspiracy theorists for questioning Walmart closings

From some fool reporter at the Houston Chronicle:

Texans blame secret military takeover for Walmart closings, secret tunnels

The fact that five Walmart stores suddenly closed right around the time the US military is about to conduct unconstitutional drills amongst US citizens has caused some to believe there might be some relation between the two. This led the fool reporter to repeat the establishment propaganda:

Stars and Stripes, the news publication of the U.S. military, ran an article titled “Army Special Operations Command pushes back against alarmist claims about upcoming exercise,” The Washington Post wrote “Why Operation Jade Helm 15 is freaking out the Internet—and why it shouldn’t be” and VICE News reported “conspiracy theorists think an army training exercise will bring martial law to the US this summer.”

It gets worse:

Yet many Americans apparently still believe they are the enemies the military is preparing to fight. It mirrors a national trend of extreme skepticism—a CNN poll last year showed trust in the government was at an all-time low, with only 13 percent saying the trust the government most of the time. Moreover, a 2012 report documented a dramatic rise in Americans rejecting the legitimacy of their government outright, and a 2015 Department of Homeland Security report warned of danger from right-wing groups resentful of military and police.

The fool reporter then links to one of his other foolish stories:

Patriot Day could rouse domestic violence, memo warns

Patriot Day [is] on April 19.

That’s the day when, 240 years ago, militiamen in the then-British colony of Massachusetts killed more than 100 uniformed soldiers, rousing the patriots to a violent uprising that ultimately led to the founding of the United States of America.

“Because terrorists like to attack on dates that are significant to them, it is important to remain vigilant,” the supposed Coast Guard memo said. “Terrorism is a real threat and it is important to remain vigilant, especially around terrorist anniversaries.”

Look at that. April 19th came and went and no “right-wingers” became violent.

Back to another one of the fool reporter’s statements:

Yet many Americans apparently still believe they are the enemies the military is preparing to fight.

Well, yeah. What are we supposed to believe when our government calls its own freedom-loving citizens “terrorists” while allowing real terrorists into our country through its unsecured borders? And, if you want real terrorism, how about what our government and its law enforcement are doing to American citizens? They are forcing vaccinations on people, killing Americans through police shootings and drone strikes, and groping us at airports. And that’s just for starters. I guess pointing these things out makes me a “terrorist.” But what does it make those who vilify me for pointing out such things?

I don’t think I’m particularly alarmist, although many would likely disagree. However, it feels like something’s coming and it doesn’t seem good. My suggestion is to watch and PRAY, although I have a hard time watching these days. It’s become too much to look at, like everything is coming at you at once. Perhaps God is nudging us to look away from the evil and to focus on Him. The Scriptures say that anything that kills, steals, or destroys is evil. Destroying our freedom is evil. However, they can never steal the freedom we have in Christ because it’s beyond their grasp. We can have peace, and even joy, in the midst of the chaos. I recommend peace and joy, if for no other reason than we can have them and the evil ones can’t.

U.S. Troops in Poland – preview of Jade Helm?

After taking part in a NATO display of military might, U.S. troops are traveling back to their base in Germany. According to an AP report:

A U.S. army infantry convoy is driving through eastern Europe seeking to provide reassurance to a region concerned that the conflict between Russian-backed rebels and government forces in Ukraine threatens its security.

According to the Daily Mail:

The soldiers have recently been taking part in the Atlantic Resolve exercise, which was intended to demonstrate NATO’s readiness to defend its members.

From the Department of Defense website:

Operation Atlantic Resolve

This is a screenshot of an interactive map available at the DOD website:

Operation Atlantic Resolve recent European events

Some of the training exercises represented by the pins have their own websites, like this:

Joint Multinational Training Command

From their website: What is Combined Resolve III?

Combined Resolve III is designed to provide the Ironhorse Brigade with multinational training and partnership opportunities that will enhance the flexibility, agility and ability to better operate alongside NATO allies and partners in Europe.

The first phase of Combined Resolve III will include gunnery training at the Army’s Grafenwoehr Training Area. The exercise will then move to the Hohenfels Training Area for a combat maneuver training before returning to Grafenwoehr of the culminating multinational, live-fire exercise that will blend virtual, simulated and maneuver forces to replicate a complex combat environment.

There’s more to the article. It mentions “the Army’s European Activity Set, a group of combat equipment and vehicles.” An activity set sounds like something you’d buy for your kid. Is it all just a dangerous game to the powers that be? The website has info on other training exercises they’ve been holding in Europe.

Does all this “play” in Europe perhaps shed light on Jade Helm? Maybe it’s the U.S.’s turn to host such exercises.

I’ve heard that one of the goals of Jade Helm is to win the hearts and minds of U.S. citizens. That’s a military tactic you can read about at Wikipedia:

Winning hearts and minds is a concept occasionally expressed in the resolution of war, insurgency, and other conflicts, in which one side seeks to prevail not by the use of superior force, but by making emotional or intellectual appeals to sway supporters of the other side.

The use of the term “hearts and minds” to reference a method of bringing a subjugated population on side, was first used during the Malayan Emergency by the British…

To be subjugated is to be conquered. “Winning hearts and minds” is a PSYOP. It is “a form of indirect aggression.” It’s a way to win a war.

Is this what it looks like? These photos are from the U.S. military’s recent romp through Poland:

Poland 06Poland 05 Poland 04 Poland 03 Poland 02 Poland 01

They also passed through Lithuania:


Is this part of what we can expect from Jade Helm? Will U.S. citizens be so happy to see tanks in their towns, or will the military have to hire actors to pose with the troops? Is that what they did in these photos? Will they perhaps scare us into feeling glad they’re here, like these European countries are allegedly being scared by a Russian threat?

Here’s another Wikipedia article worth reading: Psychological Operations (United States). Be informed so you can recognize what they’re doing. Then tell others. Troops in the streets are not there to be friendly, no matter how it appears. Their presence is an act of aggression. It’s an act of war.


What’s happened to Vladimir Putin?

There’s some interesting information in this article at All News Pipeline:

There Is Something Very Strange About The Vladimir Putin Death Hoax Story

In part, it reports that first there was a Facebook page announcing Putin’s March 10th death and then, two days later, the website of his protege Medvedev announced the same. In addition, it seems a Russian attache left his post in Britain over the alleged rumor. Maybe it’s a hacker’s hoax; however, there’s a lot of strangeness surrounding this story.

A Reuters’ report stated Putin had fallen ill and thus had to cancel a visit to Kazakhstan but that page was retracted and no longer exists, although a Canadian version does and the All News Pipeline article has the transcript. There’s also this:

Since the weekend, mainstream media are reporting all sorts of alleged Putin sightings; however, at least some of the evidence appears to consist of old videos and photos. From an update at All News Pipeline:

ABC News’ Good Morning America talks about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s reappearance after a 10-11 day absence from the world scene, overlayed with footage proving he has made a live public appearance……. strange part of that is part of that footage is from March 2014.

Some are saying that while he was away, Putin put 40,000 troops on full alert for “snap-readiness exercises.” Did he have to drop out of sight to do that?

Here’s an NPR article that is as strange as the rumors. It includes this bit of information:

Reuters reminds us that Putin’s disappearance from public view “began a week after an opposition leader was gunned down outside the Kremlin walls.”

One of the rumors is that Putin was killed in retaliation for the murder of the opposition leader.

In addition, there’s a Russian report that his chief bodyguard has been killed. And, in the following video, Professor Doom1 claims that reports coming out of Israel and other places state there’s a coup taking place in Russia:

In a follow-up video, Professor Doom1 shows photos of unusual activity taking place at the Kremlin. Here are a couple of still shots:

One of the theories is that Putin was in hiding because he had plastic surgery. Wouldn’t that be a good cover story if they were going to use a lookalike for awhile? When I watched a video of his alleged recent meeting with Kyrgyzstan’s president, Putin’s expression and mannerisms strangely lacked his usual bravado. Here are a couple of photos from that meeting:

Perhaps recent fatherhood has mellowed him? Putin’s girlfriend recently giving birth is another rumor that Russian officials say is not true.

There’s so much more to this story about Putin’s brief disappearance. The alleged rumors and the alleged facts supporting them have not yet stopped. Is it all a silly hoax? Probably not. As the old saying goes, where there’s smoke there’s fire. Could it be a sort of “shell game” to keep the world’s attention away from what’s really happening, whatever that might be?

For additional strangeness, add to the Putin stories the rumors that Iran’s Ayatollah is dead. And to that add reports that Iran has amassed 10,000 troops six miles from Israel’s northern border. Is it just more of the shell game?

Gandhi’s advice on conscientious objection to vaccination

Mahatma Gandhi wrote A Guide to Health, which contains what appear to be folk remedies. Before anyone completely dismisses folk medicine in favor of Western medicine, consider the facts that the Rockefellers funded the development of Western medicine; the elite prefer homeopathy; and, in China, Chinese medicine, with its mystical yin yang and five elements, is practiced alongside Western medicine. If it didn’t work, they wouldn’t use it. Western medicine is good for cutting things out and providing antibiotics, but beyond that does it really do more good than harm? Anyway, I’m not endorsing Gandhi’s remedies, although keeping an open mind to ways of viewing sickness and ways of healing, other than those of barbarous Western medicine, might be a good idea.

A chapter from Gandhi’s book is available at Vaccination Information Network. I found the following paragraph apropos, considering the current assault on those opposed to forced inoculations:

Those who are conscientious objectors to vaccination should, of course, have the courage to face all penalties or persecutions to which they may be subjected by law, and stand alone, if need be, against the whole world, in defence of their conviction. Those who object to it merely on the grounds of health should acquire a complete mastery of the subject, and should be able to convince others of the correctness of their views, and convert them into adopting those views in practice. But those who have neither definite views on the subject nor courage enough to stand up for their convictions should no doubt obey the laws of the state, and shape their conduct in deference to the opinions and practices of the world around them.

Measles hysteria 2015

From CNN, Measles cases in California soar:

Last Wednesday, the number was 59. Nine days later, there are 91 cases of measles in California.

There are over 38 million people living in California. As of now, there are 91 confirmed case of measles and 58 of those people were allegedly infected at Disneyland, which is in southern California. Check out this scary, or not, map:

map of CA

All that gray area is where no measles cases have been reported.

From a January 21st report by the California Department of Health:

The California measles patients reside in 11 local health jurisdictions…Patients range in age from seven months to 70 years. Vaccination status is documented for 34 of the 59 cases. Of these 34, 28 were unvaccinated, one had received one dose and five had received two or more doses of MMR vaccine.

From the CDC:

From January 1 to January 30, 2015, 102 people from 14 states were reported to have measles. Most of these cases are part of a large, ongoing multi-state outbreak linked to an amusement park in California.

A LARGE outbreak, they say. Is it? There are over 311 million people living in the United States. 102 of them have contracted measles. 91 of the 102 live in California. If my math is correct, that leaves 11 people with measles in 13 states other than California. Did a couple of them report their illnesses in two different states? Anyway, there are 48 states in the Continental United States. That means 34 states have no reported cases of measles.

A bit of a side note from the CNN article:

Measles was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000, which means it is no longer native to the United States but continues to be brought in by international travelers.

Now for the hysteria. From US News:

“This outbreak is occurring because a critical number of people are choosing not to vaccinate their children,” said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center and an attending physician at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Division of Infectious Diseases.

“Parents are not scared of the disease” because they’ve never seen it, Offit said. “And, to a lesser extent, they have these unfounded concerns about vaccines. But the big reason is they don’t fear the disease.”

…The most common side effects of the MMR vaccine are a fever and occasionally a mild rash. Some children may experience seizures from the fever, but experts say these seizures have no long-term negative effects.

No, seizures aren’t a bit scary. How common are such seizures? From the CDC:

Of the children identified as having seizures following the 7 to 10-day vaccination period, about 90% were found to be febrile seizures.

The rate of seizures in this timeframe was 85 per 1000 person-years in the MMRV vaccine group compared to 42 per 1000 in the MMR and varicella vaccine group. This risk was about 2 times higher in children who received the combination shot (MMRV) versus the single shots (MMR and varicella).

What in the world is a person-year? From medilexicon:

The product of the number of years times the number of members of a population who have been affected by a certain condition (years of treatment with a given drug).

That didn’t help.

Here’s another side note: the term “person-year” is also used in accounting. It’s a unit of measurement based on an ideal amount of work done by one person in a year consisting of a standard number of person-days.

What’s a febrile seizure? From the NIH:

Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. During a febrile seizure, a child often loses consciousness and shakes, moving limbs on both sides of the body. Less commonly, the child becomes rigid or has twitches in only a portion of the body, such as an arm or a leg, or on the right or the left side only. Most febrile seizures last a minute or two, although some can be as brief as a few seconds while others last for more than 15 minutes.

That’s not scary. But measles – we must fear measles.

Back to the US News article:

Serious complications from measles can include pneumonia and encephalitis, which can lead to long-term deafness or brain damage. An estimated one in 5,000 cases will result in death, according to Offit.

“One in 5,000 cases will result in death.” So far, this year there are 102 reported cases. Check out this list of potential side effects from a measles vaccine. Side effects include pneumonia, encephalitis, deafness and brain damage.

A final quote from the US News article:

“If a child died of measles in southern California, I think people would start vaccinating,” Offit said. “I think it will take more suffering and more hospitalizations and more deaths to not see these outbreaks. We’re compelled by fear, and we don’t fear this disease enough.”

From an AP science writer, posted by Fox News in Phoenix:

A major measles outbreak traced to Disneyland has brought criticism down on the small but vocal movement among parents to opt out of vaccinations for their children…

At Huntington Beach High School in Orange County, two dozen unvaccinated students were ordered home until the three-week incubation period is up.

More than 30 babies in Northern California’s Alameda County have been placed in home isolation after possible exposure.

“I’m terribly upset that someone has made a choice that not only affects their child but other people’s children,” said Jennifer Simon, whose 6-month-old daughter, Livia, was isolated after it was learned she may have been exposed to measles during a visit to the doctor’s office.

As others have mentioned, if the vaccine works so well, why would those who take it be afraid of exposure?

If fear mongering doesn’t work, try bullying.

From CBS news, “Doctor fed up with measles outbreak takes controversial stance”:

“I can’t protect every kid in the United States, but I can protect the ones I care for,” said Dr. Goodman. “It’s a very hard line to take, but at some point I had to draw the line in the sand and say you know what, I got to protect my kids, that’s my job as a pediatrician.”

“Those babies could die,” said Dr. Goodman. “I have to weigh the risk of a kid in my office getting measles and potentially dying versus the rights of those parents to not immunize when I thought most of them were making that choice based on bad information.”

“That’s why I took the stance, believe your doctor, listen to your doctor, not the Internet, or go somewhere else,” Dr. Goodman said.

Again, if the vaccine is so great, how will Dr. Goodman’s vaccinated babies get sick?

From Fortune, “Why you should care about the measles outbreak–even if you’re vaccinated”:

A measles outbreak spreading across the country has sickened 86 people in 14 states, raising fears of an epidemic. But what’s different this time is the high number of adults falling ill –including some who have been vaccinated…

Even with the safest and most effective vaccines, there’s still a “long tail,” meaning that a certain number of people won’t build up the needed antibodies to protect them from the measles.

So everyone has to be vaccinated in order to protect the allegedly few people that aren’t protected after getting the vaccine. It’s called “herd immunity.”

The hysteria and bullying happens every year. These are from 2014. Time Magazine:

The New Measles Outbreak: Blame the Anti-Vaxxers

You have to be spoiled to play cute with disease—spoiled or, well, stupid.

Fox News:

Deaths from measles outbreak may be ‘inevitable’ as cases surge in US

Authorities say 129 cases in 13 states were reported by mid-April, the bulk of them in California and New York City. Most were triggered by travelers who caught the virus abroad and spread it in the United States among unvaccinated people…

The U.S. numbers remain relatively tiny, but officials are worried to see case counts growing.


Big Measles Outbreaks Linked To Troubling Trend

The so-called troubling trend was opting out of vaccinations for religious reasons:

A recent measles outbreak at a religious preschool in Vancouver with a vaccination rate of nearly zero points to a troubling trend. Large outbreaks in the past year are closely tied to pockets of unvaccinated individuals within insular religious communities, some of which have been critical of the measles vaccine, rather than to statewide vaccination rates.

Again, that BIG measles outbreak was less than 150 reported cases.

It goes on and on. Every year it’s the same thing. However, you have to wonder why we’re told to fear measles but not the deadly Ebola virus with its vomiting, diarrhea, and bleeding out the ears and eyes.

This post is not intended to influence anyone to vaccinate or not to vaccinate. It’s easy to search online and find the type of propaganda quoted in this post. It’s difficult to find information that seems trustworthy. Do your own research and then decide. However, remember that healthcare professionals can get caught up in propaganda-driven hysteria as easily as the rest of us.
