Big Tech Whistleblower Fired from Pinterest After Exposing Censorship that Protects the Abortion Lobby


Former Pinterest Engineer, Eric Cochran, was fired after he exposed his former employer’s censorship of pro-life group Live Action to James O’Keefe at Project Veritas. A Pinterest staff member allegedly added it to a “pornography block list,” presumably as a way to censor the anti-abortion group. Live Action was banned from the platform, and YouTube removed the original interview with Cochran from Project Veritas (linked below).

The Dark Side to China’s Smart Cities: Everyone’s Being Watched


About 500 of the roughly 1,000 smart cities being built worldwide are in China, but the money allocated for the cities, $74 billion in public and private investment, has instead been spent on enhancing government surveillance of Chinese citizens. The security apparatus uses a vast network of cameras, facial and even gait recognition along with artificial intelligence and cloud computing to identify and track many of China’s 1.34 billion people. Most citizens are required to download apps on their phones that let the authorities monitor what they look at and track their movements, which can land someone in one of the gulags.

Earlier this year, a U.S. congressional committee commissioned a
report on China’s development of “smart cities,” with a particular focus
on whether they were smarter than their American counterparts.

The
U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission’s (USCC) request for
submissions was revealing because it showed that, despite the hype, not
much is known about the fruits of China’s efforts to build such cities.
Smart cities are highly digitally connected and use the latest
technology to manage services.

About 500 of the roughly 1,000
smart cities being built worldwide are in China, according to Chinese
state media, government figures and estimates from Deloitte. Under a
five-year plan to the end of 2020, the Chinese government expects $74
billion of public and private investment in these cities.

Yet while scattered futuristic pilot examples can be found — from intelligent lighting and power grids to smart traffic management — there is little evidence that this grand vision is dramatically improving the lives of the masses.

Instead, it appears that the bulk of the resources poured into smart
city development has gone into improving surveillance of Chinese
citizens by the pervasive domestic security services. For nearly a
decade, China has spent more on internal security than on its defense
budget. Put another way: The Communist Party spends more on monitoring
its own people than on guarding against foreign threats.

“It’s
very clear that surveillance is a significant element in China’s
conception of smart cities,” says Rogier Creemers, an expert in Chinese
law and technology at Leiden University in the Netherlands. “This
involves across-the-board surveillance that is partly political and
partly about mechanizing ordinary street-level policing.”

The
security apparatus uses a vast network of cameras, facial and even gait
recognition along with artificial intelligence and cloud computing to
identify and track many of China’s 1.34 billion people.

Florida State Outlaws Sanctuary Cities and Mandates that Local Law Enforcement Cooperate with ICE


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, signed a controversial bill that prevents cities inside of the state to declare themselves “sanctuary cities.” Instead, the bill mandates cities and law enforcement personnel cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). DeSantis said that the new law is about public safety, not about politics.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday signed a controversial bill
that prevents cities throughout the Sunshine State to declare themselves
“sanctuary cities.” Instead, the bill mandates cities and law
enforcement personnel cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE).

“I am proud to sign the bill presented to me by the
Florida Legislature to uphold the rule of law and ensure that no city or
county jurisdiction can get in the way of Florida’s cooperation with
our federal partners to enforce immigration law,” DeSantis said in a statement
on Friday. “This is about public safety, not about politics. We must do
everything within our power, and use all the tools available to us, to
ensure that our communities are safe.”

Senate Bill 168
gives Gov. DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody the authority to
“initiate enforcement actions” against cities and municipalities who
decide to ignore the law. The bill also requires any current cities that
have enacted sanctuary policies to repeal those declarations.

Sanctuary
cities received major focus after Kate Steinle was killed in 2015 while
walking with her father on a San Francisco bridge. Her killer was
someone who had been deported back to Mexico five different times,
primarily for varying levels of drug offenses. ICE had provided the San
Francisco Police Department with a detainer request, which asks the
local authorities to keep the person in custody until an ICE agent is
able to retrieve the illegal alien. Because San Francisco is a
“sanctuary city” for illegal aliens, the police department ignored the
detainer request and released him from jail.
