How to prevent Windows 10 from sending Microsoft every keystroke you type

Do you use Windows 10?

If so, you should know that, as reported by Mary-Ann Russon reports for IB Times, March 22, 2017:

Windows has been quietly logging every single keystroke users make on their keyboards from the beginning. Even better, that data is being constantly sent to Microsoft’s servers on a regular basis.

We’re not sure why on earth Microsoft would want users’ keystrokes, as this data is only really useful to cybercriminals seeking to crack passwords to steal sensitive data….

So what can you do about this truly awful security breach?

Here’s IBTimes‘ advice:

(1) If you plan to but haven’t yet installed Windows 10

  • When you install Windows 10, select “custom install”.
  • Read all the options on the installation window carefully, and make sure you always select ‘no’ for all options relating to sending data to Microsoft. It is also safe if you simply choose to just say ‘no’ to all options – it will not affect your usability on Windows 10.

(2) If you already have Windows 10

  • Go to “Start“.
  • Scroll down the “Start” menu.
  • Select “Settings” -> “Privacy” -> “Change Privacy Options“.
  • Turn off the option that reads, “Send Microsoft info about how I write to help us improve typing and writing in the future“.
  • To be safe, restart your computer after selecting this option.
  • Make sure you periodically revisit Start, Settings, Privacy, and the “Send Microsoft info” option because Microsoft can turn on that option during its monthly Patch Tuesday through the automatic Windows Updates function.

IB Times has other suggestions on how to select which Windows Updates you want, and how to disable Windows Update completely, which is not advisable because you could risk missing critical patches from Microsoft. Click here.

Alex Jones apologizes for Pizzagate ‘fake news’ on eve of March on D.C.

“Pizzagate” is the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network connecting powerful Democratic Party élites and two Washington, D.C. pizzerias, Besta Pizza and Comet Ping Pong. The latter is owned by James Alefantis, listed by GQ as the 49th most powerful person in D.C. and a former boyfriend of Clinton crony and Democratic Party operative David Brock of Media Matters.

Below is a picture that Alefantis posted to his Instagram account (source: The Tap Blog). After this and other pictures were uncovered by 4chan, his account is no longer accessible to the public:

Below is a pic posted to Instagram by a Comet Ping Pong barman joshuaryanv (source: The Tap Blog):

Given the gravity of the accusations and the many compelling circumstantial evidence, it is curious that no official investigation has been made by either law enforcement or the MSM. See “Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann”.

Today, March 25, beginning at 11 a.m., there will be a peaceful demonstration in Lafayette Park across from the White House, asking for an official investigation into Pizzagate.

Yesterday, on the eve of the planned March on D.C. against pedophiles, InfoWars’ Alex Jones publicly apologized for having propagated fake news (“an incorrect narrative”) on Pizzagate.

Jones’ apology was specifically directed at Alefantis who, last month (February 2017), wrote Jones asking that InfoWars retract statements made about Alefantis although:

  • Jones had already removed broadcasts concerning Alefantis from both InfoWars’ website and social media.
  • Jones and InfoWars already had “dissociated” themselves from Pizzagate months ago in December 2016.

Despite all that, Alex Jones still felt compelled to issue a public apology, not just to Alefantis, but for participating in the Pizzagate narrative in general. Moreover, Jones blames his Pizzagate involvement on others — “third party accounts of alleged activities and conduct at” Comet Ping Pong, as well as “accounts of reporters who are no longer with us.”

Here is Alex Jones’ “A Note to Our Listening, Viewing and Reading Audiences Concerning Pizzagate Coverage” (I added the bold highlight in red):

Last fall before the Presidential election, a large number of media outlets began reporting on allegations arising from emails released by Wikileaks that appeared to come from John Podesta, who served Presidents Clinton and Obama and was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Dozens of those stories and articles raised or discussed theories that some of Podesta’s emails contained code words for human trafficking and/or pedophilia. Stories also included allegations connecting members of the Democratic Party with a number of restaurants involved with a child sex ring. These stories were cited and discussed in social media and went viral on the Internet.

One of the persons mentioned in many of the stories in the media was a Washington, D.C. restaurant owner named James Alefantis, and his pizza  restaurant Comet Ping Pong. It is fair to say that Mr. Alefantis is a prominent individual who has been mentioned as a power player in Washington. Mr. Alefantis and his restaurant were mentioned in many stories published by a lot of different outlets. Mr. Alefantis was quoted in many subsequent stories, and he denied any involvement in such child sex rings. These denials were reported in national media and many other media outlets and news websites.

The volume of stories was substantial, generated national headlines and came to be known across the country as “Pizzagate.” We at Infowars became a part of that discussion. We broadcast commentary about the allegations and the theory that the emails contained code words. We raised questions about information in Mr. Podesta’s emails and the Comet Ping Pong restaurant. We believed at that time that further investigation was necessary. In December 2016 we disassociated ourselves from the “Pizzagate” claims and theories, a position we reiterated last month after being contacted by Mr. Alefantis.

In late February 2017, we received a letter from Mr. Alefantis asking that we retract certain statements that he says were made in seven of our broadcasts between the last week of November and the first week of December 2016. We have attempted, through our lawyers, to contact Mr. Alefantis to discuss with him what sort of statement he would like to see made.

In our commentary about what had become known as Pizzagate, I made comments about Mr. Alefantis that in hindsight I regret, and for which I apologize to him. We were participating in a discussion that was being written about by scores of media outlets, in one of the most hotly contested and disputed political environments our country has ever seen. We relied on third party accounts of alleged activities and conduct at the restaurant. We also relied on accounts of reporters who are no longer with us. This was an ever-evolving story, which had a huge amount of commentary about it across many media outlets.

As I have said before, what became a heightened focus on Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong by many media outlets was not appropriate. To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.

I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees. We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.

Here’s what we have done to clarify to the public. Months ago we took down the majority of broadcasts/videos including ones that only mentioned Pizzagate. This happened months before we were even contacted by Mr. Alefantis. Mr. Alefantis objected to portions of seven particular radio broadcasts. We have taken down those seven broadcasts and we have attempted to take down any broadcasts that mentioned Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong. We have attempted to do so not just on our website but also social media sites such as our YouTube channel. If Mr. Alefantis has other objections, we invite him to let us know. Two reporters who used to be associated with us are no longer with us. In a recent broadcast, I invited Mr. Alefantis on our program to state what he wanted to, and I again do so here. He has given interviews to many media outlets, and he is welcome to come on our show.

In issuing this statement, we are not admitting that Mr. Alefantis, or his restaurant, have any legal claim. We do not believe they do. But we are issuing this statement because we think it is the right thing to do. It will be no surprise to you that we will fight for children across America. But the Pizzagate narrative, as least as concerning Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong, we have subsequently determined was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative. Despite the fact that we were far from the genesis of this story, it is never easy to admit when your commentaries are based on inaccurate information, but we feel like we owe it to you the listeners, viewers and supporters to make that statement, and give an apology to you and to Mr. Alefantis, when we do.

We encourage you to hold us accountable. We improve when you do.

Alex Jones,
Infowars

In a departure from standard InfoWars practice, readers are prevented from commenting on Jones’ apology as “Comments for this thread are now closed”.

Jones’ curious timing — issuing a public apology for having engaged in the “incorrect narrative” about Pizzagate on the eve of the March on D.C. to raise public awareness on Pizzagate — can only discredit today’s March, as well as any and all efforts in the Alternative Media to uncover and shed light on D.C. pedophilia.

That there are pedophiles in Washington, D.C. is not farfetched given the Franklin child sex-ring scandal of 1988-1991 which involved GOP élites in Washington, D.C., and Nebraska’s Boys Town and assorted prominent citizens. The scandal is documented in two books:

Then there is the more recent case of former Congressman and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Illinois) who, in April 2016 at his sentencing hearing, admitted under pressure from the judge that he had sexually abused boys. The judge in the case called Hastert a “serial child molester” and imposed a sentence of 15 months in prison, two years’ supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

David Seaman asks “What do they have on a man [Alex Jones] who’s been so vocal on other issues plaguing our society, what did they have on him that the day before the national protest against Pizzagate and against Pedogate he has to issue a public apology?”

Fake war hero: John McCain’s ‘Tokyo Rose’ recording

Son of a U.S. admiral, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), 80, made his entire political career based on his reputation as a Vietnam war hero, incarcerated in a North Vietnamese prison camp for 5½ years until he was released on March 14, 1973. For that, McCain was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, and other commendations.

But there have been whispers and outright assertions by U.S. military veterans that McCain had sold out to the Viet Cong, ratted on his fellow inmates, and received preferential treatment.

Last August, TRUNews obtained a recording made by McCain in which he lauded his Viet Cong captors, well knowing his words would be used as propaganda. Indeed, McCain’s recording was broadcast on North Vietnamese radio in 1969.

The radio broadcast had never been heard in the United States. For that matter, no one even knew such a recording existed. But the broadcast was recorded by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a branch of the CIA that monitored international shortwave and foreign radio broadcasts. Last year, the audio recording made by FBIS was found in a misplaced file in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

TRUNEWS acquired the audio recording in cooperation with WeSearchR.com, a new media company founded by Charles Johnson.

Here’s the audio of John McCain’s “Tokyo Rose” propaganda message, followed by the transcript of what he said. (Note: Tokyo Rose was a fabricated name given by Allied troops in the South Pacific during World War II to all female English-speaking radio broadcasters of Japanese propaganda. The programs were broadcast in the South Pacific and North America to demoralize Allied troops abroad and their families at home by emphasizing troops’ wartime difficulties and military losses.)

Transcript:

To the Vietnamese people and the government of the DRVN (Democratic Republic of Vietnam):

From John Sidney McCain, 624787, Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Navy; born 29 August, 1936, Panama; home state Oregon. Shot down, 26 October, 1967, A-4E aircraft.

I, as a U. S. airman, am guilty of crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. I bombed their cities, towns and villages, and caused many injuries, even deaths, for the people of Vietnam.

I was captured in the capital city of Hanoi, while attacking it. After I was captured, I was taken to the hospital in Hanoi, where I received very good medical treatment. I was given an operation on my leg, which allowed me to walk again, and a cast on my right arm, which was badly broken in three places. The doctors were very good and they knew a great deal about the practice of medicine. I remained in the hospital for some time and regained much of my health and strength.

Since I arrived in the camp of detention, I have received humane and lenient treatment. I received this kind of treatment and food even though I came here as an aggressor and the people who I injured have much difficulty in their living standards.

I wish to express my deep gratitude for my kind treatment and I will never forget this kindness extended to me.

McCain’s fellow POWs (prisoners of war) have spoken out about him:

  • Dr. Phillip Butler, a former light-attack carrier pilot, wrote in Military.com that McCain made himself out to be “THE hero POW, which he knows is absolutely not true, to further his political goals,” because other POWs also were injured when shot down, tortured for longer periods, and awarded Silver Stars and Purple Hearts.
  • Other fellow POWs gave eye witness accounts of McCain’s traitorous actions during his time as a prisoner in Viet Nam:

In 2015, Donald Trump ignited a political firestorm when he said John McCain is not a war hero. It turns out that, once again, Trump is right!

Hero cat pounds on door; saves family from carbon monoxide poisoning

Carbon monoxide kills.

Every year, on average, 430 Americans die from carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the CDC.

Although you can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, a Maine Coon cat named Gracie in Wisconsin somehow knew, and saved her human family from carbon monoxide poisoning by pounding on their bedroom door, thereby, waking up the husband.

WREG Channel 3 reports, March 15, 2017, that Annette Shanahan of Reedsburg, Wisconsin, woke up in the middle of the night and thought that she was having a heart attack. Her head all “fuzzy,” she got up, left the bed with her husband Kevin still sleeping, and sat in the chair in the bedroom, feeling like she was dying.

The Shanahans have an 8-year-old Maine Coon mix named Grace.

Although Gracie normally doesn’t sleep with Annette and Kevin, she began “pounding” on their bedroom door with her paw.

Kevin said: “All of the sudden Gracie, I heard she was pounding, knocking, knocking, knocking at the door. And so I got out of bed and to stop her from pounding at the door, and I looked to my left and Annette was there in the chair.”

Annette said she couldn’t breathe: “I was hanging onto the arm of the chair, and I thought I was dying.”

Annette managed to call 911.

When firefighters arrived, they discovered lethal levels of carbon monoxide in the home, caused by a malfunction in the hot water heater.

Annette and Kevin were taken to the hospital, where they spent the night.

Kevin said: “Very lucky. If it wasn’t for the cat, I don’t know how much she was saving our lives, but she wanted to get out of there, and she knew enough to know something was wrong, and she was pounding on the door.”

Annette said: “I say saved by grace, saved by the grace of God, because Gracie doesn’t usually sleep with us.”

Manufacturers recommend that carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every five years. The Shanahans’ detector was 15 years old. The family now has four new CO detectors of the non-feline non-Gracie variety.

Here’s the video:

Fake Anti-Semitism: Dual US-Israeli citizens made bomb threats against Jewish groups

We are awash in fakery. Nothing is what it seems.

Our intelligence agencies concoct fake intelligence. The DSM (Deep State Media) report fake news. Go to end of this post for links.

We can add fake anti-Semitism to the ever-growing list of fakery.

Of late, there has been a rash of seemingly anti-Semitic incidents — of bomb threats to Jewish community centers and schools, as well as vandalism of Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis and Philadelphia.

Notwithstanding President Trump’s condemnation of these acts, as well as the lack of any evidence of culpability on the part of Trump supporters, he is accused of being at least indirectly responsible for the surge in “anti-Jewish” sentiment because Trump’s alleged “polarizing rhetoric” allegedly “emboldens” anti-Semitic white-supremacist groups.

Early this month, police arrested Juan Thompson for making a series of bomb threats to Jewish organizations. Not only is Thompson not a Trump supporter, he had voted for Bernie Sanders! Nor is Thompson a white supremacist: he is black. (See “Fake Anti-Semitism: Black-racist Bernie-voter made bomb threats to Jewish groups to make ex-girlfriend look bad”)

Now police have arrested another perp who had made bomb threats against Jewish groups.

Surprise! It’s a Jew!

Yonah Jeremy Bob reports for The Jerusalem Post, March 23, 2017, that sources indicate that most of the threats against the Jewish Diaspora communities and organizations led investigators back to Israel.

Israel Police arrested an 18-year-old dual American Israeli living in Ashkelon, a coastal city in Israel, who is suspected of being behind most of a series of bomb and other threats to Jewish communities in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand that date back around six months.

The unnamed suspect used very complex methods to shield himself from identification and being caught, and law enforcement had to use a variety of their own complex methods to find him.  and finally searched the suspect’s house on Thursday. They are only now able to piece together the breadth and methodology of his operations.

There are few details available about the suspect’s profile: he is not in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), not ultra-Orthodox, at some point made aliya (“return” to Israel) and possibly has psychological problems. His lawyer reportedly said the suspect has a nonmalignant brain tumor.

The suspect’s father has also been arrested for involvement in most of the same crimes and many of the threatening telephone calls. Their home was outfitted with an unusually large antenna and other unusual hardware. The suspect’s mother was questioned, but is not currently a suspect.

Israel intends to indict the suspect in its own courts, but it is unknown as of Thursday whether other countries such as the US might also seek to extradite and try him.

No age discrimination: Muslim ‘migrants’ rape elderly German women, 90 and 79

In Europe, no female of whatever age is safe from Muslim “migrants”:

Even really old women are not safe from being raped.

Here are two examples:

(1) On July 24, 2016, a 40-year-old “refugee from Eritrea” — code words for a North African Muslim “migrant” raped a 79-year-old woman when she was visiting her sister’s grave in Ibbenbueren, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. A witness called the police after hearing the woman crying for help at around 6 a.m.

The victim was given medical treatment and released from hospital after two days.

The unnamed suspect, who has been in Germany since 2013 and was living in a hostel for asylum seekers, was charged with rape and put in police custody. If found guilty, he could face 15 years in prison. (Source: Daily Mail)

(2) On October 2, 2016 in Düsseldorf, a 19-year-0ld “Moroccan migrant” raped a 90-year-old woman in daylight. The woman had just left a church in the city center when her assailant pushed her into a narrow alley between two pubs, where he demanded money and then raped her.

The woman was treated for injuries in a hospital and released the next day.

The suspect was arrested a few weeks later, when DNA found at the crime scene matched the DNA taken from the “migrant” after he had been arrested for theft in May 2016. (Source: UK Express)

On March 16, 2017, trial began in Düsseldorf for the 19-year-old suspect.

According to the prosecution, the 90-year-old victim had just lit a candle in the St. Lambertus Church when the young man confronted her and shouted “money, money!” But when the woman did not have any money with her, the 19-year-old dragged her into the courtyard where he pulled down her leggings and raped her, before strangling her and pulling at her hair. Then he went through her handbag, stealing her house key and writing down her address. Thankfully, there is no evidence that he later broke into her home.

The “Moroccan migrant” is facing up to 15 years in prison if found guilty of rape, bodily harm and theft. (Source: The Local)

A leaked internal “Casablanca Report” from Düsseldorf says there is a “child sex crisis in swimming pools”. Referring to the report, chief of the German police union Rainer Wendt said that Düsseldorf, like other German cities, has “around 2,244 North African migrant criminals”. Wendt said these migrant criminals are “laughing” at the German justice system as they are often allowed to go free after committing crimes: “They despise our country and laugh at our justice. If there is no pre-trial detention made, no imprisonment is imposed, and no deportations carried out. The police make multiple arrests and the perpetrators get away with it.” (Source: Breitbart)

The situation is so bad in Europe that 80% of Swedish police reportedly want to quit, while police have lost control of no-go zones in Germany and in the city of Marseilles, France, where “excessive violence, riots, and rapes has made it the most dangerous city in Europe.” Marseilles has a 30-40% Muslim population.

Boys are not safe either from being sexually assaulted by Muslim “migrants” (see “Iraqi migrant rapes a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Vienna and tells police it was a ‘sexual emergency’“).

Nor are store mannequins and goats.
