GCHQ spooks are monitoring the movement of British people minute by minute to check if they are complying with government restrictions, according to reports.
The London Telegraph (Paywall) reports that spies from Britain’s most secretive intelligence and security organisation, Government Communications Headquarters, have embedded a ‘cell’ within Number 10 Downing Street in order to provide Prime Minister Boris Johnson with real time information pertaining to the public’s movements.
The Daily Mail also reports on the development, which notes that GCHQ, normally tasked with spying on terrorists and foreign powers, has been turned on the British public to gauge whether people are following the COVID ‘rules’ or not.
Last Thursday afternoon, Mac users everywhere began complaining of a crippling slowdown when opening apps. The cause: online certificate checks Apple performs each time a user opens an app not downloaded from the App Store. The mass upgrade to Big Sur, it seems, caused the Apple servers responsible for these checks to slow to a crawl.
Apple quickly fixed the slowdown, but concerns about paralyzed Macs were soon replaced by an even bigger worry—the vast amount of personal data Apple, and possibly others, can glean from Macs performing certificate checks each time a user opens an app that didn’t come from the App Store.
For people who understood what was happening behind the scenes, there was little reason to view the certificate checks as a privacy grab. Just to be sure, though, Apple on Monday published a support article that should quell any lingering worries. More about that later—first, let’s back up and provide some background.
Visiting any theme park in 2020 has become a whole new ballgame for guests amid the pandemic. In Orlando, Florida, masks are mandatory at all of the theme parks to abide by the health and safety guidelines set out by the State. Walking around mask free in the Florida heat may be tempting, but if you decide to try, get ready for a cast or team member to tell you you must put it back on.
From what we have seen, both Universal Resort and Walt Disney World employees have done a great job reminding guests that they must be properly masked at all times. But, it seems that some guests have been starting to remove their masks on indoor attractions.
Where are the masks coming off?
Connecting both Universal Studios theme park and Universal’s Islands of Adventure is the Hogwarts Express. If you have never ridden this attraction, it is a transportation attraction that puts you in the shoes of Harry Potter heading back to Hogwarts. The isolated cabin that you sit in with your party is a closed-door experience, and it seems guests have been removing their masks while inside.
This is against Universal’s policy, and it looks like they have decided to do something about it…
Amazon said it had received more than 3,000 requests for smart speaker user data from police earlier this year, according to a new article from Wired.
Even more stunning, Amazon complied with the police’s requests on more than 2,000 occasions, forking over recordings and data that give law enforcement an ear into someone’s household.
This number marks a 72% increase in these types of requests from the same period in 2016 – the first time Amazon disclosed the data. The number of requests are up 24% year over year.
Douglas Orr, head of the criminal justice department at the University of North Georgia, told Wired that police look for this smart home data “as routinely as data from smartphones”. Police can continue to collect data if one electronic device (like a phone) leads them to another (like a smart home speaker) simply by amending search warrants, he said.
The Pentagon is defending its use of military aircraft to conduct surveillance on the large crowds of demonstrators and in some cases riots which enveloped multiple cities connected with George Floyd’s death.
A new investigation has exonerated the National Guard after allegations it illegally gathered intelligence on Americans.
It was previously revealed that the National Guard used reconnaissance planes to fly over at least four US cities in order to gather data on growing protests in late May and early June, crucially at a moment President Trump was urging greater action in ensuring law and order in the protest and vandalism-hit cities.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said he never personally approved of the program to fly the reconnaissance aircraft over the protests, but National Guard officials say they didn’t need higher approval given it was just for observing crowd sizes and to probe if any emergencies such as large fires were unfolding, according to their account.
A famous masseur who was hired by Jeffrey Epstein says the billionaire sex trafficker told him “you are being watched at all times” and that there was a “wall of prosthetic eyeballs” inside Epstein’s New York mansion.
Gypsy Gita, a well known masseur to the stars who caters for many Hollywood actors, worked for Epstein between 2001 and 2005.
Claiming that he also performed two or three massages on Prince Andrew at the property, Gita described the eerie atmosphere inside Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse as a “weird, warped world.”
“There was this huge wall of prosthetic eyeballs. There must have been 150 at least… Jeffrey would say, ‘Don’t forget you are being watched at all times,’” said Gita.
It’s common knowledge that Epstein’s properties were festooned with surveillance cameras which were used to gather compromat which could later be used to blackmail influential people.
In this day and age, most of us have become extremely dependent on our phones, and most Americans never even realize that these extremely sophisticated little devices are gathering mountains of information on each one of us.
Your phone knows what you look like, it knows the sound of your voice, it knows where you have been, it knows where you have shopped, it knows your Internet searches and it knows what you like to do in your free time.
In fact, your phone literally knows thousands of things about you, and all of that information is bought and sold every single day without you knowing.
And as you will see below, there are lots of companies out there that use information collected from our phones to create secret “surveillance scores” that are used for a whole host of alarming purposes.
The globalists gleefully announced it right in front of all of us.
Big Tech and Big Pharma are using face-scanning technology to rule over a disposable population that is being sold the COVID-19 vaccination fraud pushed by Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates as 5G and false positives swell the Covid-19 numbers.
However, the populous is wide awake.
But how much can the average American endure before desperation leads to righteous anger?
And how long before the average citizen is checkmated by the overlord system now blatantly being constructed by our own indifference and tax dollars?
If you downloaded the latest iOS update back in May, and any following updates, then congratulations…your COVID-19 infection status will likely soon be tracked by state health officials as part of each state’s contact tracing efforts.
Many iPhone users across the US have over the past few days started to notice a new setting under the “privacy” subtab of the iPhone health app. It looks like this, and allows users to “toggle on” COVID-19 exposure logging.
It’s all thanks to the latest update of Apple’s iOS operating system for iPhone, iOS13.5.
