With this Wi-Fi information, hackers can access customers’ personal home networks. It only gets scarier from there as hackers could use customer’s webcams to spy on them and their children, gain access to their bank accounts, and retrieve personal information necessary for identity theft. “This is a classic example of how more surveillance does not mean more safety,” said Evan Greer, Deputy Director of Fight for the Future.Read Entire Article »

    by Ethan HuffScientific “consensus” is a popular buzzword commonly used by climate fanatics to “prove” that man-made climate change is a real thing. But is there really even a consensus as these hysterics claim? Not even close.As it turns out, the climate lobby loves to pull its “facts” right out of thin air, including the newly minted fiction that “More than 11,000 scientists declare ‘climate emergency.’” While this regurgitated mainstream media headline is pretty cut and dry, the claim it makes is patently false, we’ve now learned.Just like the Greta Thunberg hoax, the notion that more than 11,000 actual scientists are suddenly lamenting an impending “climate emergency” has absolutely no basis in reality.Read Entire Article »
