Latest “Deepfake” Videos Could Cause Massive Shift in Informational Reality

I have seen the harbinger of informational doom, and it is Steve Buscemi’s face on Jennifer Lawrence’s body.

Deepfake

This modern world is growing smaller by the minute as our species continues to push the boundaries of space and of time.

In the realm of space, we are learning more everyday, and we are being surprised along the way with incidents such as our recent bout of “FRB”‘s.

As time goes, however, technology is speeding up the processes of creation in ways that many never thought possible.  Where you once had to carry hundreds of pounds of fragile equipment around simply to take one single photograph, we can now capture, edit, and publish movies all from our cell phones.  Thanks to this widespread use of the technology, the power of the computing systems behind it have been honed as well, leading to the ability to create some of the most stunning visual effects ever.

But, herein lies the creepy part…

While the nation grapples with concerns over the spread of inaccurate and deceptive information online, deepfakes—videos in which an individual’s face is superimposed onto another—continue to advance at a quickening pace.

Now, the new ones are downright terrifying.

And here is just one wildly unnerving example:

This does pose a very real threat to our democracy as well, with the possibility of wholly fabricated videos of our elected or would-be elected officials being released in order to disparage their constituents.

The video’s viral spread online Tuesday comes as numerous U.S. lawmakers sound the alarm over the potential of deepfakes to disrupt the 2020 election. A report from CNN indicates that the Department of Defense has begun commissioning researchers to find ways to detect when a video has been altered.

And, worse still, (as if you wanted to hear that); the widespread creation of “deepfakes” could lead to a further monopolization of the media.

You see, this technology makes anything possible, quite literally.  Networks such as CNN, or platforms such as Twitter, will surely become supposed “safe zones” from these sorts of shenanigans, allowing them to proclaim that they are the one and only truth of the matter.

This is not good for the First Amendment at all.

Furthermore, the widespread knowledge of the possibility of “deepfakes” will undoubtedly be used by some unlucky politician in the coming months, after they are caught on camera saying or doing something stupid, immoral, or worse.  For instance, what if Bernie Sanders had responded to the newly released video of him drunkenly singing in the USSR by claiming that it was a “deepfake”?  What then?

In any case, we are barreling toward a reality where we can only trust ourselves and those whom we take the time to get to know…and there is at least a bit of cozy comfort in that.

WATCH: Antifa Radicals Get Violent At Portland Protest, Attack & Pepper Spray Journalist (Videos)

HORRIBLE!

It’s no wonder President Trump is considering designating Antifa a domestic terror organization. The group has one goal: to impose their will by any means necessary in order to silence conservatives. That would be fascism, funny enough. Check out what’s currently happening in Portland… Independent journalist @Muffinpan503 was attacked & pepper sprayed. A woman tries to calm the angry shirtless man following him but is told to mind her own business as a white person. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162793066022858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162793066022858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F “I didn’t come to talk, I came to bring it out.” Things are getting tense at the antifa protest. Someone hit a man’s microphone to the ground. I recognize this shirtless man from Seattle last year at another antifa protest. He came up to me and said, “Death is coming.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162790907050991616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162790907050991616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F A black man praises Jesus on a bullhorn. The shirtless protester yells at him: “Ain’t no f—ing white Jesus going to save the black man from the white man’s oppression, uncle Tom.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162797976823013376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162797976823013376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F More on Portland, via Guardian: As Portland prepared for what may be one of the biggest political demonstrations of the US summer, which authorities expected would lead to violence, Donald Trump threw into the mix a characteristically explosive tweet. “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR’,” the president wrote from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday morning. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!” “Antifa” is a collective term for a loose affiliation of anti-fascist groups. Such counter-protesters have clashed with far right activists in the Oregon city throughout the Trump era, some of them wearing “black bloc” attire and face masks. Stay tuned for more…

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…
