America has always had a bipartisan taste for conspiracy theories because humans are wired to selectively connect dots that fit a preconceived narrative. Every society has its own pet notions of secret cabals and mysterious plots.

I have to make clear that conspiracy theories are meant to be bipartisan. Real conspiracy theories are formed to lift the veil on all kinds of possible corruption and it does not matter what race, religion or political leanings people have – conspiracies both good and bad need to be exposed.

Whenever I put together a report where I suspect cover-up and conspiracy sometimes I have to walk on eggshells because we live in what is called a Cancel Culture.

Some people, particularly those who consider themselves targets or victims of cancelation campaigns, argue that it is a dangerous trend in American culture, one that is actively stifling art, media, science, education, and free thought.

Others argue that Cancel Culture is just another term for accountability and that invoking the specter of Cancel Culture is just a way of dodging responsibility for one’s actions.

What the Cancel Culture sets out to do is censure what they believe is uncomfortable or unpopular thought.

One problem with Cancel Culture is that there is no statute of limitations or mechanism for renewal. What you’ve said or done can haunt you for the rest of your life — even in death, we have seen attacks on people like Singer Kate Smith and actor John Wayne for something that was seen inappropriate by the mob of hate.

I think that calling it the cancel culture is too soft of a term what it should be called is the culture of condemnation –where controversial people and ideas are propped up as examples of what some believe should be hated, or not tolerated in the culture.

It is the equivalent to being excommunicated from a church or erased and made into an “unperson.”

In 1984, Winston Smith became an unperson because he was too intelligent and free-thinking for the Authoritarian Political Party. He was a loyal member of the Party and was devoted to the revolution, but because of his passion, the Party feared he could be a dangerous foe if he ever changed his mind.

I think people deep down want to be free thinkers, but they can’t.

Not with all of the peer pressure and organized propaganda that feeds on condemnation rather than an open and rational mind.

Critique is normal but cancelation and condemnation are extreme and sometimes very important people with very important stories are silenced by an extremist mob.

Critique involves listening and understanding, and then perhaps trying to change the minds of those who disagree. Instead of trying to change people’s minds, the mob removes them from view.

There is also the idea that if the mob can target a name with a face — they can use it as an icon of hate.

That face can be the face of a President, a political leader, or even a television or movie personality.

In the novel, 1984 by George Orwell, there was something called the Two Minutes Hate. It was used as a distraction to fortify the hate of one person so that the people would not hate Big Brother and the Ministry of Truth.

The Two Minutes Hate was the daily, public period during which members of the Outer Party of Oceania watched a film depicting the enemies of the state, specifically Emmanuel Goldstein and his followers, to openly and loudly express hatred for them.

The political purpose of the Two Minutes Hate is to allow the citizens of Oceania to vent their existential anguish and personal hatreds towards politically expedient enemies: It’s propose was that of re-directing the members’ angry feelings away from the Party’s government of Oceania and towards so-called external enemies.

All the while, the corrupt government can enforce their surveillance state and their injustices as those who rebel or try to point out inconsistencies are actually publicly humiliated on the telescreens.

There was also a group called Thinkpol or the thought police who are responsible for the detection and elimination of thoughtcrime, and for the social control of the populations of Oceania, by way of audio-visual surveillance and offender profiling.

Such psychological monitoring allowed the Thought Police to detect, arrest, and kill thought criminals, citizens whose independence (intellectual, mental, and moral) challenges the political orthodoxy of INGSOC – English socialism the political ideology of Oceania.

It is becoming overwhelmingly clear that Orwell knew of human behavioral responses to tyranny.

Everyone who values our rule of law and the general premise our country should understand that our country was founded upon fundamental inalienable and pre-political rights.

However, somehow this is being lost in the emotional uptake of the mob that wishes to cancel, condemn, and ridicule thoughts that they see are potentially bigoted or criminal.

Our justice system does not punish people before they commit crimes. However, all that is changing with the arrival of social credit and red flag laws where he state is empowered to unilaterally infringe upon a right specifically enumerated for constitutional protection in our Bill of Rights without due process and before a person commits any kind of criminal conduct. Just because someone “might” be a danger is wholly legally insufficient to infringe upon their right.

Even if it were constitutional, the logic doesn’t follow. Most people who exhibit the same supposed mental health indicators never commit mass shootings. Just because 100% of mass shooters happened to wear a T-shirt doesn’t mean we now strip guns from everyone who wears t-shirts. Even if the mental health indicators were rationally related to shootings, in America we simply don’t profile our citizens and strip them of their rights as a legal preemption. Our justice system imposes punitive consequences after actual conduct.

We also filter this view of “obvious signs” after the fact in many cases. It’s easy to identify a mass shooter after they pull the trigger. To somehow categorize “potential” shooters is akin to thought crimes.

Whenever the United States suffers a blow due to mass shootings or threats of war and terrorism, there is always a conspiracy to somehow take away basic freedoms and implement the Orwellian nightmare of tyranny and thought crime and sometimes those who are involved in pushing such agendas may surprise you.

Research that has been completely ignored by the media– Orwellian “solutions” are set to be foisted on a frightened American public by the very network connected, not only to well known sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, but to a litany of crimes and a frightening history of plans to crush internal dissent in the United States.

Whitney Webb is a Freelance journalist who lives in Chile she has contributed to several independent media outlets including Global Research, EcoWatch, the Ron Paul Institute, and 21st Century Wire.

While doing research on the 9/11 attacks, I was reading some of her material and as Io was perusing her articles I saw a curious headline: “How the CIA, Mossad and “the Epstein Network” are Exploiting Mass Shootings to Create an Orwellian Nightmare.”

I realized that after Jeffery Epstein’s death there was little to no coverage of how he made his money, who he worked with and whether or not he was a CIA and a Mossad informant.

Whitney put together an amazing article that was enough to pique my interest in how Epstein was not only a sex trafficker, he also was involved with Eugenics experiments and he was also an investor in surveillance and spyware.

Not long after Epstein’s arrest and his relationships and finances came under scrutiny, it was revealed that the Israeli company Carbyne911 had received substantial funding from Jeffrey Epstein as well as Epstein’s close associate and former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak, and Silicon Valley venture capitalist Peter Thiel.

According to the article: Carbyne911, or simply Carbyne, develops call-handling and identification capabilities for emergency response services in countries around the world, including the United States, where it has already been implemented in several U.S. counties and has partnered with major U.S. tech companies like Google.

The article goes in to say that Carbyne is deeply connected to the elite Israeli military intelligence division, Unit 8200. Unit 8200 is a high-tech spy branch responsible for the training of some of the country’s top technology experts and leading cyberwarfare efforts.

They are known also as Signal Ops as they collect Signal intelligence and code decryption.

Unit 8200 is widely seen as Israel’s equivalent to the NSA in the United States. Most of their staff are anywhere from 18 to 21 years of age.

Carbyne products are built so they can easily be used to illegally surveil the governments, institutions and civilians that use them, a troubling fact given Unit 8200’s documented prowess in surveillance as a means of obtaining blackmail and Israel’s history of using tech companies to aggressively spy on the U.S. government.

Unit 8200-linked tech companies have previously received U.S. government contracts to place “backdoors” into the U.S.’ entire telecommunications system as well as into the popular products of major American tech companies including Google, Microsoft and Facebook, many of whose key managers and executives are now former Unit 8200 officers.

A week ago, Politico reported that Israel was most likely behind the placement of cellphone surveillance devices that were found near the White House and other sensitive locations around Washington, according to three former senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter.

But unlike most other occasions when flagrant incidents of foreign spying have been discovered on American soil, the Trump administration did not rebuke the Israeli government, and there were no consequences for Israel’s behavior.

The miniature surveillance devices, colloquially known as “StingRays,” mimic regular cell towers to fool cellphones into giving them their locations and identity information. Formally called international mobile subscriber identity-catchers or IMSI-catchers, they also can capture the contents of calls and data use.

The devices were likely intended to spy on President Donald Trump, one of the former officials said, as well as his top aides and closest associates — though it’s not clear whether the Israeli efforts were successful.

The New York Times subsequently reported in October 2018 that “Chinese spies are often listening” to Trump’s cellphone calls, prompting the president to slam the story as “so incorrect I do not have time here to correct it.” (A former official said Trump has had his cellphone hardened against intrusion.)

By then, as part of tests by the federal government, officials at the Department of Homeland Security had already discovered evidence of the surveillance devices around the nation’s capital, but weren’t able to attribute the devices to specific entities.

Israel officially denies any wrongdoing as they say that they have no need to spy on the President.

This may or may not be linked to Unite 8200 and Carbyne.

As Jeffrey Epstein’s links to intelligence in both the United States and Israel, the subject of a recent four-part series exclusive to MintPress began to be revealed in full, his financing of Carbyne came under scrutiny, particularly for the company’s deep ties to Israeli intelligence as well as to certain Americans with known connections to U.S. intelligence.

Ehud Barak’s own role as both financier and chairman of Carbyne has also added to that concern, given his long history of involvement in covert intelligence operations for Israel and his long-standing ties to Israeli military intelligence.

Another funder of Carbyne, Peter Thiel, has his own company that, like Carbyne, is set to profit from the Trump administration’s proposed hi-tech solutions to mass shootings. Indeed, after the recent shooting in El Paso, Texas, President Trump who received political donations from and has been advised by Thiel following his election — asked tech companies to “detect mass shooters before they strike,” a service already perfected by Thiel’s company Palantir, which has developed “pre-crime software” already in use throughout the country. Palantir is also a contractor for the U.S. intelligence community and also has a branch based in Israel.

Perhaps most disturbing of all, whatever technological solution is adopted by the Trump administration, it is set to use a controversial database first developed as part of a secretive U.S. government program that involved notorious Iran-Contra figures like Oliver North as a means of tracking and flagging potential American dissidents for increased surveillance and detention in the event of a vaguely defined “national emergency.”

According to Whitney Webb the database is called “Main Core.”

It was created with the involvement of Israeli intelligence and Israel remained involved years after it was developed, and potentially to the present. It was also used by at least one former CIA official on President Reagan’s National Security Council to blackmail members of Congress, Congressional staffers and journalists, among others.

Given recent reports on the Trump administration’s plan to create a new government agency to use “advanced technology” to identify “neurobehavioral signs” of “someone headed toward a violent explosive act” using data collected by consumer electronic devices, the picture painted by the technology currently being promoted and implemented under the guise of “keeping Americans safe” is deeply Orwellian.

In fact, it points directly to the genesis of a far-reaching surveillance state far more extensive than anything yet seen in American history and it is being jointly developed by individuals connected to both American and Israeli intelligence.

Carbyne began to be specifically marketed as a solution to mass shootings in the United States that goes “beyond the gun debate” and improves the “intelligence that armed emergency responders receive before entering an armed shooter situation” by providing video-streaming and acoustic input from civilian smartphones and other devices connected to the Carbyne network.

Mainstream news sources claimed that Carbyne was the solution to the nations aging 911 systems and that Carbyne’s services result in “a 65% reduction in time-to-dispatch.”

Carbyne’s call-handling/crisis management platform has already been implemented in several U.S. counties and the company has offices not only in the U.S. but also in Mexico, Ukraine, and Israel. Carbyne’s expansion to more emergency service provider networks in the U.S. is likely, given that federal legislation seeks to offer grants to upgrade 911 call centers throughout the country with the very technology of which Carbyne is the leading provider.

One of the main lobby groups promoting this legislation, the National Emergency Number Association has a “strong relationship” with Carbyne, according to Carbyne’s website. In addition, Carbyne has also begun marketing its platform for non-emergency calls to governments, educational institutions, and corporations.

Yet, what seemed like the inevitability of Carbyne’s widespread adoption in the U.S. hit a snag following the recent arrest and subsequent death of sex trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who exploited underage girls for the purpose of obtaining “blackmail” on the rich and powerful, an operation that had clear ties to intelligence.

Epstein, after his first arrest and light sentence for soliciting sex from a minor in 2007, was tapped by former Israeli Prime Minister and former head of Israeli military intelligence Ehud Barak, to become a key financial backer of Carbyne.

As a result of increased scrutiny of Epstein’s business activities and his ties to Israel, particularly to Barak, Epstein’s connection to Carbyne was revealed and extensively reported on by the independent media outlet Narativ, whose exposé on Carbyne revealed not only some of the key intelligence connections of the start-up company but also how the architecture of Carbyne’s product itself raises “serious privacy concerns.”

In early August, in the wake of the shooting at an El Paso Walmart, President Trump called on big tech companies to collaborate with the Justice Department in the creation of software that “stops mass murders before they start” by detecting potential mass shooters before they can act. Though Trump’s ideas were short on specifics, there is now a new proposal that would create a new government agency that will use data gathered from civilian electronic devices to identify “neurobehavioral” warning signs, thereby flagging “potential shooters” for increased surveillance and potentially detention.

This new agency, as proposed by the foundation led by former NBC Universal president and vice chairman of General Electric Robert Wright, would be known as the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA) and would be modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Per the proposal, recently detailed by the Washington Post, the flagship program of HARPA would be “Safe Home” (Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes), which would use “breakthrough technologies with high specificity and sensitivity for early diagnosis of neuropsychiatric violence,” specifically “advanced analytical tools based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.”

The program would cost an estimated $60 million over four years and would use data from “Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo and Google Home” and other consumer electronic devices, as well as information provided by health-care providers to identify who may be a threat.

Does anyone see the connection?

Whitney Webb has connected the dots as to why Red Flag laws and neuro-surveillance will be able to track and arrest people for pre-crime.

Again, one only needs to follow the money.

This story is reminiscent of yet another conspiracy of criminal surveillance brought to light by investigative Journalist Danny Casolaro.

Danny Casolaro was just a reporter that stumbled onto a story that would cost him his life.

Casolaro’s investigation began with his inquiry into the case of Inslaw, from whom the U.S. Justice Department stole a software package called PROMIS and sold it to governments and financial institutions around the world, after modifying it to provide a back door by which they would track the movement of money and other assets everywhere.

It was the ultimate surveillance software.

PROMIS is short for “Prosecutors Management Information System. The superintelligence and surveillance software was created by Bill and Nancy Hamilton who formed a company called INSLAW. The software was created under contract of the U.S. Government for $10 million dollars. After the software was installed in the U.S. Attorney General’s office – the Justice Department refused to pay for the software.

After entanglements with the creators of PROMIS, a company called Hadron owned by Attorney General Ed Meese tried to purchase the PROMIS software and try to lease it out for $500 million dollars to the same justice department that refused to pay $10 million dollars for it.

In investigations, it is an old rule that you “follow the money”, but in this case, Danny Casolaro had to track the spread of the PROMIS package to follow the people who are following the money, and in so doing, illustrated the links in the network of criminal influence around the world and back to their origins, the way a physician might use an angiogram to reveal the blood flows in a human body.

The Hamilton’s refused the offer but somehow PROMIS eventually found its way into foreign law enforcement computers.

Casolaro wanted to investigate the INSLAW scandal and found that the PROMIS affair had so many conspiracies ties to it; he compared it to an Octopus with every tentacle involved in criminal malfeasance.

PROMIS created what he called a BIG BROTHER master file where political dissidents, tax protesters, whistleblowers, reporters and conspiracy theorists were listed as potential threats to the government.

Danny Casolaro learned of one unintended PROMIS application from his main informant, electronics genius Michael Riconoscuito. He told Casolaro that he modified the PROMIS software to have a backdoor access feature for the CIA.

He claimed that this backdoor feature helped CIA heavyweights William Casey and George H.W. Bush pull off the October Surprise where they paid Iranian authorities not to free the hostages but keep them alive until after the Presidential election where Ronald Reagan would be installed as a puppet president for the CIA.

In fact, the American hostages were not released until minutes after Jimmy Carter officially left office with the swearing-in of Ronald Reagan.

Riconoscuito’s back door access allowed the CIA to tap into military, law enforcement and intelligence files all over the world with just a touch of a button.

Caslolaro’s Octopus was about the electronic Trojan Horse that was smuggled into 88 different countries who all paid to be plundered, monitored and spied upon. They also fell victim to attacks and most countries were compromised including Iraq in the Gulf War.

On August 10th, 1991, Casolaro was searching for more tentacles in the surveillance Octopus and decided to meet with a former CIA agent connected to the INSLAW affair. The ex-CIA man arranged a Martinsburg, West Virginia meeting between Casolaro and Bush Justice Department official, Peter Videnieks.

The next morning, Danny Casolaro was found dead in the bathtub of his hotel room – his wrists slashed a dozen times. It was promptly ruled suicide even though Casolaro’s briefcase notes and manuscript were all missing.

Shortly before his death, his housekeeper reported that Danny received a threatening phone call. She also noticed the disappearance of his papers and notes from his desk.

More than once before his death Casolaro had told his brother “If anything happens to me and it looks like an accident, don’t believe it.” The authorities ordered that his body be embalmed immediately without permission from his family.

It appeared that Casolaro was murdered for what he knew – a victim of the very surveillance Octopus he tried to expose.

Aside from the dystopian nature of both DARPA and potentially HARPA’s approach to mental health, there is grave cause for concern regarding the Trump administration’s moves to address U.S. mass shooting events by implementing pre-crime technology based on artificial intelligence, data-mining and mass surveillance, technologies already laying in wait thanks to companies like Palantir and numerous Israeli tech start-ups led by former Unit 8200 officers.

Today in America, we have conflicting visions of the future and conflicting ideas on how we are to save ourselves if America falls to some criminal or cancerous ideology. There are many people who are waiting for the starting gun to react to such a catastrophe. There are others who see the cancerous ideology of tyranny that already has its tentacles in everything we do.

Rather than silencing voices that wish to expose this Orwellian nightmare, we should try to understand how the open conspiracy operates with impunity in our lives – creating paranoia and a snitch society that easily wants to condemn before they understand what is at stake.
