How CGI & AI Could Promote Fake News & Be Used To Create Fake Videos

Published

on

Earlier this year, we witnessed a lot of skepticism from the public regarding Julian Assange’s whereabouts. Given the extent that Wikileaks affected the last U.S. election by publishing the leaked DNC emails, there was heightened concern for his safety, and some people even thought he was dead.

Julian Assange hadn’t had any public appearances for a long time, and the only form of visible communication he had with the public was through videos. Many speculated that these videos could have been modified with computer-generated imagery, hence why some people thought they were fake videos and that he could be in danger.

Though many brushed this idea to the side, deeming it a “conspiracy theory,” the reality is that concerns like these cannot be simply blamed on increased paranoia or conspiracy theorists. I’m obviously not saying that Julian Assange is dead, but I’m suggesting that you should be wary of fake video footage and it’s understandable if you hear others expressing concern over it. 

Mainstream media is no stranger to producing fake content, and this could potentially further progress the issue of “fake news” and make it more difficult for the public to decipher the truth from fiction.

First of all, the U.S. government and mainstream media have created fake terrorist videos to support an ongoing propaganda model. Second of all, technology is rapidly advancing, and we’re now at a point where computers can generate extremely realistic videos of specific people talking, so much so that you’d likely never know the difference between a real video and a fake one.

How Can CGI and AI Create Fake Videos?

Researchers from the University of Washington created a new video, titled “Synthesizing Obama,” using AI to produce a fake video of former President Barack Obama speaking. This can be done easily using footage from his past speeches, though Business Insider pointed out that the audio could easily come from anywhere to create any type of fake video.

Supasorn Suwajanakorn, a researcher who worked on “Synthesizing Obama,” agreed that it could be used to create fake content, but also believes it could create more healthy skepticism, which is a tool more people could benefit from developing.

“It could potentially be used to create fake videos when combined with technology that can generate a person-specific voice,” Suwajanakorn said. “On the other hand, if such tools are widespread and well-known, people can be more cautious about treating video as a strong evidence. People know Photoshop exists, and no one simply believes photos. This could happen with videos.”

You can watch the following fake video of Barack Obama here:

We previously wrote about a similar technology referred to as Face2Face. Borne of a collaborative effort between Germany’s University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics, and Stanford University in California, it was tested on George W Bush, Donald Trump, and Vladimir Putin.

The study, titled “Face2Face: Real-time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos,” “animates the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-renders the manipulated output video in a photo-realistic fashion,” according to the researchers.

You can watch the original video from that study here:

You can read more about this particular study in our CE article here.

How Does Mainstream Media Already Create Fake News?

To be perfectly honest, this isn’t much of a stretch from our current reality when it comes to fake videos and fake news. The U.S. government has already been caught creating fake videos to manipulate the public, as the Pentagon paid a PR firm over $500 million to create fake terrorists videos.

North American mainstream media (MSM) has also been caught falsifying data and images; for example, multiple MSM news outlets reported that Russia bombed a hospital in Syria when in reality that hospital still stands. The fake ‘al Quds hospital‘ news story was reported by both CNN and PBS, stating that Russian airstrikes took down the hospital in April 2015, killing innocent civilians — none of which is true. In fact, Russia released satellite imagery proving that the hospital was still standing later in the year.

The following video features world renowned Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett discussing the White Helmets, an organization that Western media paints as “heroes” who are in reality terrorists funded by the West, and other fake MSM news reports on the Syrian war:

None of this information is very surprising if you’re well versed in the U.S. government’s history in creating and funding terrorists like al Qaeda and ISIS. The U.S. government is in the pockets of MSM as well, routinely paying many stations to create false narratives that adhere to their political agenda.

Amber Lyon is a three-time Emmy award winning journalist at CNN who went on record stating that mainstream media outlets are routinely paid by the U.S. government as well as by foreign governments to selectively report and manipulate information on specific events. She has also admitted that the U.S. government has editorial control over mainstream media content.

The CIA even designed an entire program around manipulating MSM. The CIA’s Operation MOCKINGBIRD is the government program referring to its interest and relations with mainstream media. MOCKINGBIRD stemmed from the CIA’s forerunner, the Office for Strategic Services (OSS, 1942-47), which, during World War II, created a working relationship with journalists and psychological warfare experts operating primarily in the European theatre.

Together, MSM and the government have been painting a false picture of terrorists for a while now. A recent study found that terrorist attacks receive five times more media coverage if the “terrorist” is Muslim (read more about that in our CE article here).

The sad truth is that you can almost always guarantee that you’re not being told the full story when MSM is discussing “terrorism” because MSM is controlled by the U.S. government, and so any dialogue that comes from the media has been heavily censored by the very organization that created and funded these terrorist groups.

“Al Qaeda and the Al Qaeda affiliated organizations, including the Islamic State, are not independent organizations, they are sponsored, and they are sponsored by the United States and its allies. It is documented that prior to 2011, there was a process of recruitment of mujahideen to fight in Syria, and this was coordinated by NATO and the Turkish high command. This report is confirmed by Israeli news sources and unequivocally, we are dealing with a state-sponsorship of terrorism, the recruitment of mercenaries, the training and the financing of terrorism.”

– Dr. Michel Choissudovsky (source)

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard even proposed a bill recently in an effort to put an end to this government corruption, titled the “Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” which only received an alarming 13 supporters.

Gabbard was quoted as saying that the “CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. This support has allowed al-Qaeda and their fellow terrorist organizations to establish strongholds throughout Syria, including in Aleppo.”

It’s clear that MSM isn’t often as truthful as they should be when reporting on certain subjects, particularly those relating to the U.S. government. Despite the overwhelming amount of evidence supporting this claim, many people still trust MSM. Perhaps these new CGI and AI discoveries will make people a little more wary of everything they see on the media, regardless of how “trusted” the source may seem.

A little bit of skepticism can go a long way in changing people’s perceptions and opening the minds of others. Let’s hope that, although this could be used to generate even more fake news stories, this new technology may also help awaken people to the reality of MSM!

The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.

  • Reflect On:

    What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?

A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.

There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.

This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.

So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.

How Did Trump Get In?

First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.

Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.

You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.

Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.

But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.

Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.

Brazil’s Proactive Plan To Fight Poverty By Preventing It Through Neuroscience & Parents Love

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The first 1000 days of a child's life are the most important for the proper development of their brain. Many parents lack this knowledge and understanding of what it truly takes to ensure their children are getting what they need.

  • Reflect On:

    The outcome of this massive experiment from Brazil may change the way parents are raising their kids worldwide. Children who come from loving, supportive, attentive families will have a better chance of creating a good life for themselves.

For nearly two decades Brazil has undergone the world’s biggest experiment to prove that by teaching poor parents how to love and nurture their infants it will dramatically influence what kind of people they become as adults. Through this guidance and support, Brazil is hoping to change its current trajectory of violence, inequality, and poverty through a method of prevention through love and care.

It is no secret that babies need to be loved and nurtured, but over the years there have been many other opinions and popular books about the Cry It Out method, or leaving babies to fend for themselves, placing them in their crib alone, out of the danger/fear of potentially smothering your baby in their sleep. Also, there is a general lack of knowledge and understanding about how crucial your time, care and attention is to a developing baby.

Because of this, many babies and children haven’t received an adequate amount of love and care as is needed for healthy brain development. In fact, babies can’t fend for themselves, and when they are left to cry they have drastically increased levels of cortisol, which can have a detrimental impact on their development, potentially altering who they could become later in life.

The leader of this project, Osmar Terra, became obsessed with the question of how humans develop about 30 years ago. He was a cardiologist in the 90’s and would often read research papers about the neuroscience of early childhood. After entering politics and becoming mayor of Santa Rosa in Rio Grande do Sul in ’92 he continued to ponder this question, leading him to a master’s degree in neuroscience. Terra wanted to find a way to tackle poverty head-on.

“In every single activity, I always ask myself, ‘What is the public policy that can be more transformative?’” he says. “How can we most dramatically improve the quality of life for our citizens, their health, their education?”

After much research, he came to realize that the answer to that question starts at the very beginning, during the pregnancy and the first few years of a child’s life.

There is a ton of groundbreaking research that shows how love and a sense of safety experienced by a baby will directly impact how the child brain will become wired. Adversity, especially that which is persistent and stress-triggering such as neglect and abuse will hinder development. This can result in poor mental, emotional and physical health, educational attainment and even early death. All of this important information and research is ultimately what led Terra to create Crianca Feliz, a highly ambitious parent coaching and guidance program that was launched in 2017. The goal is to try and reach four million pregnant woman and children by 2020.

Have A Look

“If a child feels emotionally safe and secure and attached they explore the world in a better way. The safer they feel, the safer their base, the faster they learn,” he says.

“I believe that this is the solution, not only for Brazil, but for any country in the world in terms of security, public security, education, and healthcare,” says José Medeiros, a senator from the state of Mato Grosso who heads the parliamentary committee on early childhood development. “It’s a cheap solution.”

Terra’s claims are more dramatic. “We will change the world, starting from the very beginning.”

The First 1,000 Days

Scientists have discovered that the first 1000 days of life are the most crucial for brain development.

According to Quartz.com

Many people, rich and poor alike, have no idea what infants are capable of. Psychologists and neuroscientists believe they are creative geniuses, able to process information in far more sophisticated ways than we ever knew. But for that genius to show itself, the baby needs to feel safe and loved and to have attention.

Medeiros explains how he viewed parenting before he went to the Harvard program.

”I raised my kids as if I were taking care of a plant,” he recalls. “You give them food, you take care of them.” He says he did the best he could, but “I did not have all this information. If I had encouraged them, stimulated them more, I would have been able to contribute much more to their development.”

He is hardly the exception. A 2012 nationally representative survey in Brazil asked mothers, 52% of whom were college educated, what things were most important for the development of their children up to three years of age. Only 19% mentioned playing and walking, 18% said receiving attention from adults, and 12% picked receiving affection. “So playing, talking to the child, attachment, it’s not important for more than 80% of the people who are interviewed,” says Harasawa, the director of Criança Feliz.

What Can We Take Away?

Could a lack of knowledge around what it really means to be a parent and raise a child be one of the biggest contributors to the crime, domestic violence, poverty and a wide array of other damaging behaviours that we are seeing globally? Could it really come down to parenting and the care that is given during the first 1000 days? It is very likely.

Unfortunately, many of the parents without the knowledge were likely raised by parents who didn’t have this knowledge either. Brazil’s ambitious plan will serve as a powerful experiment that the whole world can take note of. This truly has the power to give parents the tools they need to raise their kids in such a way that they have a better chance of reaching their highest potential. Let’s not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. This is very important work, Bravo Brazil for leading the way for this powerful potential for real change!

US Military Child Sex Trafficking Whistleblower Exposes The United Nations & The U.S. State Department

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Ex Nebraska policewoman, Kathryn Bolkovac, who served as a UN peacekeeper and worked under DynCorp, a military contractor, where she learned about elite level sex trafficking involving the UN, the State Department & Military exposes the truth.

  • Reflect On:

    Numerous disclosures have been made, yet none of it is ever presented in the mainstream media, and if it is, they attempt to debunk it. Why does this type of activity always involve prominent "elitist" people? Why is it always covered up?

The topic of pedophilia is a disturbing one for sure, what’s even more disturbing is that this kind of thing continues to happen all over the world, particularly among the global elite. There are literally too many examples to go through, whether it be the pedophilia that’s been exposed inside the Vatican or the fairly recent NBC news report accusing Hillary Clinton covering up a giant pedophile ring within the state department, this thing is hitting the mainstream.

What really blew the lid off the topic was the whole Pizzagate scandal, although labeled as “fake news” by those who control the mainstream media, as organizations like Wikileaks felt it very important to release that information, and question it.  Then you have people with strange connections to the Clintons and other ‘global elitists,’ like Jimmy Savile, who was well connected with the Royal Family, as well as Jeffrey Epstein, who seemed to be well connected with Prince Andrew.

There are countless lawsuits, accusations, and more constantly going on that the public is completely unaware of. The Vatican alone has dished out approximately 4 billion dollars to settle child sex abuse claims, and right now, the prominent Vatican official Cardinal George Pell, who has been found on multiple occasions to be connected to large pedophilia rings, has been charged by detectives in Australia and is currently fighting multiple allegations of sexual abuse.

Above are not even a fraction of the examples that are out there, this is a very big issue with a lot of evidence behind it, but we don’t really know about it because not many people hear about it, and most of it is so downright unbelievable that it’s hard to blame them, but also discouraging when it’s not really acknowledged.

Apart from what’s mentioned above, we have people from within these “cliques”, and others from police forces, as well as intelligence agencies,  investigating this type of thing. Ted Gunderson, a former Director of the FBI (LA Branch) was one who spent a lot of time in this area, if you haven’t already heard of him I suggest you check him out. He did a lot of investigating into elite level child sex pedophile rings as well as children who’ve been used in strange rituals.

You can watch a lecture from Gunderson here.

There’s a quote that fits in perfectly with this from a Vatican source,  Malachi Martin, who was an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church. He was originally ordained as a Jesuit priest and became Professor of Paleography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute.

“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia – rites and practices – was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” (Written in Manlpy P. Hall’s book about  geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, page 632)

So, for these reasons and many more, I wanted to turn your attention to a lecture given by a former Nebraska policewoman, Kathryn Bolkovac, who has also served as a U/N/ peacekeeper. In the lecture, she discusses her experience with human trafficking. What makes her so interesting is that she was with the International Police Task Force which was arranged by DynCorp Aerospace. She was actually assigned to the office that investigates sex trafficking, which is how she learned what she did.

What she discovered was horrific. For example, when she arrived in Bosnia, she was shocked to discover military officers involved in human trafficking and forced prostitution, with ties to the United Nations as well as the U.S. State Department. Let me remind of the first paragraph of this article, with regards to the State Department. Even Steve Pieczenik, a former United States Department of State official who referenced Jeffrey Epstein (mentioned above) fairly recently stated,

“We know that both of them have been a major part and participant of what’s called The Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill Clinton and Hillary to engage in sex with minors, that is called Pedophilia.”

But again, this goes far beyond just mere quotes.

Bolkovac’s disclosures have been a precursor to some recent ones, like, for example, US-based NGO Code Blue received 14 internal UN reports detailing how numerous UN peacekeepers were accused of sexual misconduct. They involved some very serious allegations, which were mishandled and “botched”  by the UN. An Associated Press investigation into the United Nations (UN) has revealed that over the past 12 years, there have been approximately 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers and other employees around the world. The latest example to come out of the UN would be from the ex-chief advisor for the United Nation’s Child Labour Program, Peter Dalglish, who was recently arrested for pedophilia. In early 2017 the United Nations Secretary-General admitted to 145 incidents involving 311 victims in 2016 alone, mainly in peace operations. We covered this earlier this year.

When Bolkovac exposed this type of stuff, she was instantly demoted, threatened, fired, and forced to flee the country. She was a target because she had access to and kept the incriminating documents. She was the inspiration behind the Hollywood feature film, “The Whistleblower: Sex Trafficking, Military Contractors, and One Woman’s fight for Justice”

Her role, while she had her job, involved a post with the International Police Task Force arranged by DynCorp Aerospace. She won a lawsuit against them publicly exposing their numerous human rights violations. Anytime I write about DynCorp, I have to mention that retired army General James Grazioplene, who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, is currently facing multiple rape charges.

Former U.S. representative Cynthia Mckinney was well aware of the corruption that was going on within DynCorp, and she actually addressed it in 2005 when she grilled former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on the government’s involvement and compliance with DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children.

There will be a number of related CE articles on this issue linked below the lecture that goes into more detail about the above-mentioned stuff
