Do Not Buy The Obama iPhone 5nSa

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

Since I’ve upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S4 I have never understood why anyone would want an iPhone… but that is beside the point.  And I do realize many people are Apple-fanatics… but here is a very urgent warning about why you should not buy the iPhone 5S or even upgrade to iOS7.

I have been shocked that people are waiting in line for what is essentially barely an upgrade with no major benefits. The biggest change is cosmetic; instead of white it is now the color gold. That brings to mind the disconnect most modern minds have between the color gold and the real thing. Today, Olympic gold medals have almost no gold in them and people proudly show off their “gold” credit cards as a prestige symbol when all it is is a fiat currency debt card colored gold.

Of course, most of those waiting in line are actually homeless people who were paid by someone to stand in line! But it is still strange to see.

An excellent video of the actual prospective purchasers (as far as we can tell) waiting in line for days or weeks for this new phone can be seen here… including a man sleeping with his head in a plastic bag!

It does smell mostly of marketing… possibly even paid for in part by Apple and the US government as many waiting in line are the aforementioned homeless people being paid to wait in line… along with a smattering of apparently insane people.

That Apple and the US government are in cahoots has already been proven by Edward Snowden and the proof has been published in the UK Guardian newspaper:

The first – and best known – is Prism, a system allowing the NSA easy access to the personal information of non-US persons from the databases of some of the world's biggest tech companies, including Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. Later, it emerged Microsoft had worked to circumvent its own encryption to enable NSA access to customer records.

So, it is not out of the realm of possibilities that this is an NSA-sponsored event.

There are only two other changes that I can see in the iPhone 5S, aside from the new gold color.  This version has a faster processor and it has a fingerprint scanner that can and most likely will send your details directly to the NSA, CIA and US government.

A faster processor is always nice… but that’s literally the only real improvement!  The scanner that's being touted as an improvement is actually just a way for a crony corporatist organization to pass along your online activities and whereabouts to a fascistic government. You have to love these slaves, lining up to be fingerprinted!

The best video we’ve seen on the new iPhone 5N(S)A is here:

And then we saw this!


Outside of many Apple stores New York’s best and finest (ahem), the NYPD, were handing out this brochure!


We hope this is not real, but the fact that “avaialble” was misspelled does seem to add credence to it being real… especially with US police departments actually having a policy of hiring people with low IQ’s. reports that numerous people have received this brochure from NYPD.


If it is true, it is amazing that the new iPhone, which for all intents and purposes just takes your fingerprints and uploads them to government databases has the New York police handing out brochures to upgrade to iOS 7!

If you ever needed a wake-up call to the fasco-communist police state of America this should be one!

If you've had enough and are ready to get out, make sure to take that vital extra step in diversifying your geopolitical risks by getting a citizenship and passport with a nation-state that isn't obsessed with tracking you and your activities and taxing you no matter where go.

Finally, a "'Bama" phone that lives up to the name! It may not be paid for with money stolen from strangers...but it gets its users to continually and gleefully toss all their personal information into government data banks. 

Remember that encouraging video in which that lady -- who was clearly a product of government housing and "education" --gloated about getting even more goodies, particularly a new cell phone, from the latest violent collectivist chief? The terms of her undignified dependency just got a whole lot sweeter with the prospect of that "'Bama phone". 

She undoubtedly felt that the new president sort of sharing her pigment and nose shape had something to do with her new, unearned toy. I hope she isn't too disappointed to see that millions of white folks will be happily shelling out their own money to share in the joy of using a communication device that signifies a complete relinquishing of privacy and personal dignity to the state in a new and improved way.

Seriously...why would you want to own and use a device that attaches your fingerprint to your communications and online activities...when the company that makes the device will make those fingerprint-coded activities totally available to a government that never stops looking for new reasons to put you in a cage and/or extort more money from you?
