Movie tip: The Signal

The Signal movie cover

A horror film told in three parts, from three perspectives, in which a mysterious transmission that turns people into killers invades every cell phone, radio, and television.

  • Genre: Horror/Thriller/Comedy/Sci-Fi
  • IMDB Rating: 6.2
  • My Rating: 8

This movie was way better than I expected, especially for a B-movie! It’s basically a 28-Days-Later-style Horror with a sprinkle of Tarantino and Black Comedy and served with a big plate of Paranoia. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s helpful to know this beforehand:

Eric Schmidt (Google CEO) said:

I think judgment matters. If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines — including Google — do retain this information for some time and it’s important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities.

Very interesting playthroughs of various videogames. The videos are usually always commented so it’s similar to watching someone play the game in your room while talking about secrets and funny insides or just trash talking away.

War Promises

English version of a german documentary called Kriegsversprechen (war promises). Note to non-german speakers: the title looks and sounds like the word “Kriegsverbrechen” which translates to war crimes.

Official info from the youtube video:

Millions of people believe that evidence proves that Western intelligence services organised the hideous attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001. Even the mainstream media have stopped defending the official version and now prefer to ignore the issue altogether. 

Distrust in Western governments grows as the wars of aggression waged by the USA and NATO continue to be justified with these false flag operations. Ever harsher domestic laws are being passed to crush all outrage and resistance in Western populations; at the end of the day they aim to unleash the German military on German civilians, instead of allowing morality and ethics to flow into day-by-day policymaking. 

That morality and ethics long ago stopped playing a part in political decision-making is shown by the use of internationally outlawed weapons in all the wars NATO has started. At best, one has heard of depleted uranium after seeing the film Deadly Dust by award-winning Frieder Wagner. But even that film is systemically blocked out and banished, although, or perhaps because, it shows the horrific consequences of the use of these uranium weapons.

Among those aghast at the actions of NATO and the complicity of Germany in such internationally illegal wars of aggression is Christoph Hörstel, for many years foreign correspondent and editorial head of the German public broadcasting network ARD. Of like mind is Giullietto Chiesa, a Member of the European Parliament, who slams the ignorance and disinterest of most of his fellow Members. 

What they dont know is explained in the film War promises by insiders and whistleblowers. Annie Machon was a spy with the British MI5 and reports on false flag operations, as do Andreas von Bülow and Jürgen Elsässer, who possess enormous insider knowledge from their membership of the parliamentary committee supervising the secret services, and want to bring it to the public. 

Eight years after 9/11 millions of people have linked up through the Internet to jointly rebel against this criminal system. What was still dismissed as a wild conspiracy theory until just a few month ago is now regarded as proven, raising the question how we, the people, handle this situation, in which those who govern us have on their minds anything but our wellbeing.
