A one-and-a-half-hour interview with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, shown on YouTube, provides all the input needed for a very convincing deep fake video. The voice and facial expressions are AI-processed, and the system can then render a convincing video based on a tapped or narrated text in which Netanyahu sums up texts such as: "I have offered Bourla to use the people of Israel as test subjects for the Pfizer vaccine." Well – almost convincing then because the choppy videos on 'conspiracy platforms' Rumble and Bitchute are very low resolution and the sound doesn't quite sync. It seems like some artifacts from the AI had to remain invisible. 'Sloppy cut and paste' was already mentioned here and there. But still: if this is deep fake, it's terrifying. See for yourself:
… of toch echt?
OK, the Prime Minister gives a two-hour interview for a major online channel with nearly 1 million subscribers. However, on the condition that the entire interview is first approved by his Public Communication department, which must check whether everything fits in with the chosen strategy. They agree that a low-resolution version will be sent back and forth for agreement. That's how it's done. After compressing two hours of video, the quality turns out to be poor and the audio falters a bit, but good enough for a substantive inspection. Then it turns out that there are a few fragments about which the communication advisors have their doubts. The above excerpt is one of them. No one really dares to update Netanyahu on the effects of his deal ("we'll explain that to you again") but that fragment is cut from the final version that eventually is posted on YouTube. But: the lowres movie is still there... And a clipped clip is leaked by one of the communications advisers who has his political sympathies slightly different than he said during his job interview.
A controversial position
The video dates from a few months ago, Dec. '22. What Netanyahu is saying is that his beloved Jewish people can be used for medical experiments ("Well, the vaccines are safe after all" I hear many people think.) But of course that's super sensitive – and that's a euphemism: it's a scandal. Precisely to prevent this, the Nuremberg Code and the Helsinki Declaration drafted and accepted worldwide.
And why don't we hear from CIDI about this abuse of the Israeli population?
What we also learn from it is that political leaders have lined up in front of the pharmaceutical companies' sales counter. Earlier I wrote that the pharmaceutical companies might have been pressured by governments. Back then, I underestimated the power of Big Pharma.
It is slightly different: they have had to seduce the pharmaceutical companies with hundreds of billions, revenue guarantees and exemptions from responsibility. As a pharmaceutical company, you then stroke your heart and promise the delivery of an imperfect half-tested product of which you do not even have the mass production in order yet. You're not at risk.
Risks? The lawyers of both parties have to arrange this with each other. Netanyahu saw responsibility for any lives destroyed as a formal afterthought, something that must be legally settled. The decision was made after personal phone calls with Bourla, that's how you arrange things: decisively, in good faith, aristocrats among themselves. Dealing with possible popular whining afterwards is lawyer's work. So that's how you start thinking about people's lives when you have a lot of power.
Would other ministers have been so much different? Think of our Hugo de Jonge, Rutte, Kuipers, you name them all... All borderless trust, not only in pharmaceutical companies but especially in institutions and government and EU agencies such as FDA and EMA. After all, this is where the legs of the ladder are anchored on which they themselves have slipped up. While they must have all felt that what they were doing couldn't really be done. Although: Netanyahu is still proud of it. End of 2022. Their moral compass is simply directed differently. Otherwise, their career probably wouldn't have gone so smoothly either.
The Fake Check
I posted the lowres video on Facebook because I couldn't imagine it was deep fake. First of all, the gestures and intonation were amazingly good, but deep fake is used to make people say things they would normally never say. Is that so? If you look at what Netanyahu says in interviews, that's not the case.
on Saturday night, the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said he had received a commitment from the pharmaceutical company to bring forward deliveries in exchange for Israel's provision of "statistical data" — effectively making the country a massive test case to see how vaccines can stop the pandemic.
"As part of the agreement with Pfizer, we have decided that Israel will be a global model state for the rapid vaccination of an entire country," he said, adding that Israel will share data with the world that will "help develop strategies to defeat the coronavirus." Pfizer has not independently confirmed the deal.
In short, why make a deep fake video of someone giving a pithy summary of a point of view we already know — or could have known — about them?
And what about the interviewer, Jordan Peterson? Had the basic series but now a staunch opponent of the boosters. As a Canadian, he focuses on Trudeau:
So, suppose it's not a deep fake, would Jordan Peterson have been willing to cut out that piece?
Well, well for the public version. Or they did that at YouTube, but that seems strong to me. On streaming service Daily Wire+, the complete interview, including the offending excerpt, is simply behind a paywall. at Jordan Peterson online, time code 1:47:27 to 1:48:27. In passing, Netanyahu also unfolds his plans for a central genetic database that a gigantic industry can work with etc. etc.
If you ask me, those people don't realize what kind of bomb they're playing with. They look like virologists with a virus.
So it's not just Big Pharma that we should distrust. We can no longer rely on democratically elected leaders, especially when elections are coming up. If Netanyahu treats his own beloved Jewish people in this way and thinks he is protecting them and bringing prosperity (and thus winning votes), then that is a sign on the wall. Why shouldn't more politicians feel this way? I can already hear the objections: "That's not happening here." Oh no? With an EU and a WEF where the layers of government seek each other out, pat each other on the back, exchange 06 numbers, scare each other?
WEF? What does that have to do with it?
Well this WEF video for example of Netanyahu at an online Davos-2021 meeting. In any case, watch for a few seconds from 4:40 (short clip on the right). Exactly the same story about his Unique Selling Point: "We have offered to share our digital information with Pfizer to understand the effects of mass inoculation." Admittedly not individual info, he insists, but if such a leader gets it in his head, I still have to see what happens.
The complete WEF video can be found here. The price didn't matter, it just requires personal leadership to get things going, Bibi believes. Twenty-one times called Bourla, you know, the guy who got so excited with Ursula von der Leyen about multibillion-dollar SMS-te. Personal leadership at its best.
In any case, there is no democratic, legal or budget-technical process involved, that much is clear. Now this man may still be somewhat sensible (?) but what if a slightly lesser god, think of a Hugo the Younger, had been in his place?
I haven't heard any worrisome noises from the Davos audience. The WEF talk show host, Børge Brende, President of the World Economic Forum, didn't move a muscle either. It is apparently normal in those circles to deal with populations in this way. The constituency is becoming increasingly unimportant. Supervision and control only get in the way.
The philosophical pillars have largely disappeared in our system, but man is simply a social animal and species seeks kind. The clumping of the power bubble is the greatest danger of our time: concentration of power.
I wanted to end with "That goes wrong once." But unfortunately, it has already gone wrong.
Nothing electronic Deep Fake. It's reality and we're in the middle of it.
