1. Trans-scam a major vector of the destruction of individual rights and the installation of collective and fictional rights and increased arbitrary power of the state
A very strange thing happened on the internet the day President Joe Biden was sworn in.
A shadowy company residing at a shared workspace above a Florida bank announced to the world´s computer networks that it was now managing a colossal, previously idle chunk of the internet owned by the U.S. Department of Defense.
That real estate has since more than quadrupled to 175 million addresses – about 4 percent the size of the entire current internet. It’s also more than twice the size of the internet space actually used by the Pentagon.
‘It is massive. That is the biggest thing in the history of the internet,’ said Doug Madory, director of internet analysis at Kentik, a network operating company.
The sell off of Internet space sparked theories the Pentagon could be eventually responding to repeated demands to monitise its collections of millions of dormant web pages.
But it now seems officials hope to place the pages on the open market in order to allow them to gather huge amounts of intelligence data about Internet users, including hostile actors.
The military hopes to ‘assess, evaluate and prevent unauthorized use of DoD IP address space,’ said a statement issued Friday by Brett Goldstein, chief of the Pentagon’s Defense Digital Service, which is running the project.

Few of the Government scientists helping to shape the nation’s Covid strategy are as influential and ubiquitous as Professor Susan Michie. Not only is she a senior member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) but also two other groups guiding Ministers and she is regularly given a platform by the BBC and ITV to share her ideas.
Yet few viewers and listeners will realise that Prof Michie is a key member of the Communist Party of Britain and is dedicated to establishing a new socialist order in this country.
To her critics, it is little wonder that she is prominent among those demanding yet more Covid controls, bursts of short, sharp isolation and seemingly indefinite mask-wearing and distancing – the sort of policies favoured by the Communist Morning Star newspaper.
As the entrepreneur and former Channel 4 chairman Luke Johnson noted drily: ‘Susan Michie is a member of the Communist Party. They know all about controlling behaviour in places like Communist North Korea.’
4. Video refers to Yemeni forces doing major attack on Saudi base, but its Iran. This video is very lopsided towards the Iranian side.

This Amazing Polly video is quite interesting. Much of what she says, may reflect a lot of our internal dialogue on the state of things today.
