What a Digital Obama Puppet Tells Us About Finding Truth in the Digital Age

An Obama digital puppet shows how technology is making it more and more possible to conceal fact from fiction, with ever-increasing facsimiles of real people saying things the real people would never say. from https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/07/what-do-you-do-when-you-cannot-believe-your-own-eyes/533154/ Computer scientists can now make realistic lip-synched videos—ostensibly putting anyone’s words into another person’s mouth. The animated gif that you see above? That’s not actually Barack Obama speaking. It’s a synthesized video of Obama, made to appear as though he’s speaking words that were actually inputted from an audio file.

Mini-Nuclear Fission Reactors Could Help Remote Locations

The military needs portable power sources for their advanced, remote bases. Using fuel to power generators is costly and produces many logistic issues. To solve this problem, the military is researching the concept of modular, mini nuclear-fission-reactors. This development could also, at some point, empower more remote communities to have a reliable, cost-effective, resource-lean source for power as well. from https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2017/07/very-small-modular-nuclear-fission-reactors-for-military-and-space-applications.html The Defense Science Board has a 99 page report which proposes that the US military fund the development of very small nuclear reactors for forward remote operating bases.

Gun Background Checks Drop under Trump Presidency

As we covered in another article, the gun market appears to be softening under a Trump administration. In addition to gun sales dropping, so too have background checks. from http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jul/10/gun-background-check-totals-drop-as-market-adjusts/ The number of federal gun background checks dropped in June after posting a modest uptick a month earlier, signaling the firearms market is still adjusting to the post-Obama world, which had brought record sales.

Wisconsin Might Be Teaching High School Kids Gun Safety and How to Shoot

Wisconsin public schools may soon get exposed to guns in a constructive way. This is sure to anger the anti-gun cultists who have been attempting to create and foster a gun fear culture for decades. from http://www.jsonline.com/story/news/education/2017/07/10/bill-would-allow-gun-education-curricula-wisconsin-high-schools/455196001/ Wisconsin high school students would learn how to handle a range of guns — from handguns to rifles — as an elective class under a state Assembly bill introduced last week. Rep. Ken Skowronski (R-Franklin) is the lead sponsor of the bill, which would allow schools to offer on-site gun education classes. Its purpose is to promote gun safety and to boost participation in trap shooting, he said. The bill would not change a current law that prohibits live ammunition and its use on school property. The bill would not require schools to offer a class. If they did, students would not have to take it. However, the bill would require school superintendents to develop curricula. “What we’re doing is allowing the high schools to offer an elective as a choice,” Skowronski said. “It can be yearlong, a quarter or a semester. It’s up to the school.” Under the bill, curriculum development must be done in conjunction with either the Department of Natural Resources, a law enforcement agency or an organization that specializes in firearm safety or certification of firearms. Bill would allow gun education curricula in Wisconsin high schools State Rep....

Rothschild’s Had a Dream of a World Currency by 2018

A world currency would be great for globalists, but terrible for liberty. from http://www.thedailysheeple.com/rothschild-controlled-media-outlet-get-ready-for-a-world-currency-by-2018_072017 One must also keep in mind that the controlling interest of The Economist is held by the powerful Rothschild family, who regard themselves as the “custodians of The Economist magazine’s legacy.” In essence, the magazine operates as a quasi-propaganda arm for the Rothschild banking empire and related businesses and, is in many ways, meant to prime the pump of public opinion for the globalist agenda to be implemented. The excerpt below appeared in the print magazine on January 9, 1988, in Vol. 306, pp 9-10....

Kondracke argued that “the left and the right are tearing the country...
