Foreign Spies Acquired NSA Tools via Amazon S3 Hacking, Used Them To Cyberattack US Allies Reader 05/07/2019 (Tue) 12:09:32 Id: 430928 [Preview] No. 14642 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A leading cybersecurity firm found evidence Chinese intelligence operatives repurposed National Security Agency hacking technology in 2016 to attack American allies and private firms in Europe and Asia, according to the New York Times.

Researchers with Symantec believe the Chinese government captured the code from an NSA attack on their own systems rather than stealing it, according to the article. The hacking group that repurposed the tools has committed several attacks on U.S. targets including space, satellite and nuclear propulsion tech manufacturers, according the Times, citing a classified agency memo.

Some of the same tools were also dumped online by an unidentified group calling itself the Shadow Brokers, later used by North Korean and Russian intelligence, according to the Times, although there is no apparent connection between the Chinese acquisition and Shadow Brokers’ activity.

While Symantec is not sure how the Chinese got the code, Chinese intelligence contractors have used the tools to conduct cyber-warfare in Belgium, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, the Philippines and Vietnam, according to the Times, with targets ranging from schools and scientific research to the government of a U.S. ally. In one case, an operation against a telecommunications network may have led them to obtain as many as millions of private communications, according to Symantec.

Symantec’s research does not explicitly identify the Chinese government, instead referencing “the Buckeye group,” the firm’s term for a team of hackers identified by both the Justice Department and private firms as a contractor for China’s Ministry of State, according to the report. The Justice Department indicted three hackers connected to the group in 2017.

“This is the first time we’ve seen a case — that people have long referenced in theory — of a group recovering unknown vulnerabilities and exploits used against them, and then using these exploits to attack others,” Eric Chien, a security director at Symantec, told the Times.

James Woods Banned From Twitter As Govt-Tech Firms Censor More Conservatives Reader 05/05/2019 (Sun) 13:56:18 Id: c76e31 [Preview] No. 14628 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Outspoken conservative actor James Woods has been banned from Twitter for more than a week after he tweeted "If you try to kill the King, you best not miss’ #HangThemAll" - an apparent reference to the Mueller report.

Woods's girlfriend Sara Miller tweeted a screenshot of Twitter's account suspension, which cites "targeted harassment" as the reason.

Of course Twitter doesn’t inform his followers. @RealJamesWoods has received the following email: pic.twitter.com/2nnnVBVktQ

In September, Woods was temporarily suspended for posting a satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign, encouraging liberal men to "make a woman's vote worth more" by staying home.

On Friday, President Trump tweeted: "So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!"

Hah. Bullshit. My account at Twitter was suspended for a simple portrait with no text as "hate speech". I created a new one with a different portrait and it was locked the moment I finished registration. Dorsey can't say that's not politically motivated.

They probably noticed and locked your second account really quickly because they saw you use either the same IP address and/or email account to register. To evade bans I hear people have to be pretty tricky these days (IP spoofing, temporary disposable email accounts, changing the MD5 hash for targeted/banned media content [spoofing file fingerprints], etc. And even that is now being addressed with newer algorithms that can detect keywords and other stuff to instantly notify their censors.

They're building a slave plantation, and honestly I think the best thing to do is to boycott it and refuse to cooperate with it anymore. Use as many alternatives that we have available to us and meanwhile prepare for survival off-grid when need be.

Kike group alarmed after German police let National Socialists march Reader 05/04/2019 (Sat) 04:15:42 Id: b01b96 [Preview] No. 14627 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
[All denigrating references saying "neo-Nazis" will be changed to National Socialists]

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s leading jewish organization expressed alarm Thursday over footage of flag-waving National Socialists in self-styled uniforms marching through an eastern German town on May Day unhindered by police. Footage of the march Wednesday prompted widespread outrage in Germany and calls for authorities in the state of Saxony, where far-right sentiment is particularly strong, to step in. “The images of the National Socialist march by The Third Way party in Plauen are disturbing and frightening,” said Josef Schuster, the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews. Noting that the rally took place on the eve of Yom HaShoah , the day when Jews commemorate the [fake] six million jewish men, women and children [not] murdered in the [fraud] Holocaust, Schuster added that “right-wing extremists are marching in Saxony in a way that brings back memories of the darkest [best] chapter in German history.”
[Obligatory:] https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/
German security agencies say The Third Way, a relatively small party, has close ties to far-right extremists. The march in Plauen took place to the beat of heavy drums made to look like those used by the Hitler Youth. Participants shouted slogans such as “Criminal foreigners out!” and “National socialism now!” Saxony police said several hundred people took part in the march. Counter-protesters were kept away. Police said they are investigating nine people for illegally covering their faces during the event and another for insulting an officer, but described the day as a success from a policing perspective because there was no violence. The Central Council of jews said authorities should have prevented the march from taking place at all.

“If the Saxony state government is serious about combating right-wing extremism, it must not allow such demonstrations,” Schuster said. “The jewish community expects decisive action and visible consequences from the responsible authorities and the state government.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right Christian Democratic Union is running neck-and-neck in recent opinion polls with the far-right Alternative for Germany party ahead of Sept. 1 state election in Saxony. At a separate rally Wednesday, National Socialists marched through the western German city of Duisburg with signs calling for the destruction of Israel.

US-China Trade Deal Dead: Trump To Raise Tarrifs Against China To Record 25% Reader 05/06/2019 (Mon) 15:56:42 Id: 8920a5 [Preview] No. 14632 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So much for months and months of constant leaks, headlines, tweets, and press reports that US-China trade talks are going great, and are imminent amid an ocean of "optimism" (meant solely to sucker in amateurs into the most obvious bull headfake since 1987).

Just after noon on Sunday, President Trump tweeted that 10% tariffs paid by China on $200 billion in goods will rise to 25% on Friday, and that - contrary to what he himself and his chief economist, Larry Kudlow has said for months, talks on a trade deal have been going too slowly.

And, just to underscore his point, Trump also threatened to impose 25% tariffs on an additional $325 billion of Chinese goods “shortly.”

....of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%. The Tariffs paid to the USA have had little impact on product cost, mostly borne by China. The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2019

With the tariff rate on numerous goods originally set at 10% and set to more than double in 2019, Trump postponed that decision after China and the US agreed to sit down for trade talks; following Trump's tweet it is now confirmed that trade talks have hit an impasse and that escalation will be needed to break the stalemate.

It was as recently as Friday that Vice President Mike Pence told CNBC that Trump remained hopeful that he could strike a deal with China (at the same time as he was urging for a rate cut from the Fed).

The S&P closed on Friday at a new all time high, with hardly a concern in the world and nothing but blue skies ahead... and then just two tweets from Donald Trump shortly after noon on Sunday afternoon shattered the market's idyllic picture, when the US president admitted that trade talks with China are not only not going "optimistically", but have effectively collapsed and tariffs on Chinese imports would be hiked.

The result, discussed overnight, was a "sea of red" as risk assets and currencies across the globe collapsed, offset by a flight into safe assets including Treasuries and the US dollar. The MSCI world index fell half a percent.

Dutch Central Bank Admits Their Ponzi Schemes Only Benefit The Super Rich Reader 05/05/2019 (Sun) 13:58:30 Id: 8e9a30 [Preview] No. 14630 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Netherlands Central Bank has just published a fascinating new paper, titled "Monetary policy and the top one percent: Evidence from a century of modern economic history".

Authored by Mehdi El Herradi and Aurélien Leroy, (Working Paper No. 632, De Nederlandsche Bank NV), the paper "examines the distributional implications of monetary policy from a long-run perspective with data spanning a century of modern economic history in 12 advanced economies between 1920 and 2015, ...estimating the dynamic responses of the top 1% income share to a monetary policy shock."

The authors "exploit the implications of the macroeconomic policy trilemma to identify exogenous variations in monetary conditions." Note: the macroeconomic policy trilemma "states that a country cannot simultaneously achieve free capital mobility, a fixed exchange rate and independent monetary policy".

Per authors:

"The central idea that guided this paper’s argument is that the existing literature considers the distributional effects of monetary policy using data on inequality over a short period of time. However, inequalities tend to vary more in the medium-to-long run. We address this shortcoming by studying how changes in monetary policy stance over a century impacted the income distribution while controlling for the determinants of inequality."

They find that "loose monetary conditions strongly increase the top one percent’s income and vice versa. In fact, following an expansionary monetary policy shock, the share of national income held by the richest 1 percent increases by approximately 1 to 6 percentage points, according to estimates from the Panel VAR and Local Projections (LP).

This effect is statistically significant in the medium run and economically considerable."

The authors also demonstrate that:

"The increase in top 1 percent’s share is arguably the result of higher asset prices. The baseline results hold under a battery of robustness checks, which (i) consider an alternative inequality measure, (ii) exclude the U.S. economy from the sample, (iii) specifically focus on the post-WWII period, (iv) remove control variables and (v) test different lag numbers. Furthermore, the regime-switching version of our model indicates that our conclusions are robust, regardless of the state of the economy."

China Develops Groundbreaking Heat-Resistant Material For Hypersonic Weapon Reader 05/05/2019 (Sun) 13:57:49 Id: e79d5d [Preview] No. 14629 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
At Mach 5 (3,836 mph), a hypersonic vehicle enters a dense atmospheric layer, the ambient gas undergoes not only density change, but also a significant temperature increase. This physical-chemical reaction is associated with the flight speed is converted into heat and chemical energy, which is a considerable heat barrier that had researchers around the world scrambling for new materials that could withstand temperatures far higher than the melting point of metal.

It seems that researchers in central China, studying hypersonic heat transfer, a subdivision of aerodynamics that studies gas motion laws, have developed a non-carbon-based heat-resistance material for hypersonic flight, according to the Global Times.

Jinglian said the composite of ceramics and refractory metals makes the new material far more superior to Western technologies that use "traditional refractory metals and carbon-carbon materials."

She said the composite is like concrete cobble.

"Think of the ceramics as the cobblestones, or the pellets, and the refractory metals are like the concrete. In high temperatures, the ceramics will act as pellets that pin the refractory metals, so they will not soften and deform."

As a result, the material has a melting point higher than metal, but also important characteristics such as low density and high malleability, according to the Hunan Television report.

As of March, the composite has been used in aviation, space exploration, shipbuilding, and national defense products, Hunan Television said.

Over the past two decades, China has made enormous progress in upgrading its military capabilities. China launched its hypersonic program in 2009, and by 2014, began testing an experimental hypersonic glide vehicle - that could be operational by 2020.

We reported last month that Xiamen University, a public university in Xiamen, Fujian on China's southeast coast, successfully tested a hypersonic missile in Northwestern China.

Wireless Headphones Pumping Radiation Into Brains (No Wonder The Masses Are So Stupid!) Reader 05/02/2019 (Thu) 16:39:26 Id: deb675 [Preview] No. 14624 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Wireless headphones could pump radiation directly into your brain and harm your health, a biochemist has warned.

According to Jerry Phillips, professor of biochemistry at the University of Colorado at Colorado Spring, there is evidence which “indicates potential concerns for human health and development from all technologies that operate at radio frequencies.”

Metro.co.uk reports:

He was one of the 250 signatories of a petition to the UN calling for ‘protection’ from the radiation emitted by electronic devices.

‘Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines,’ the petition said.

‘Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.

‘Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.’

The petition continued: ”The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF,’ they wrote.’ By not taking action, the WHO is failing to fulfil its role as the preeminent international public health agency.’

Good! UK Donors Abandoning May's Cuckservative Party In Favor Of New Brexit Party Reader 05/02/2019 (Thu) 16:40:20 Id: b111d9 [Preview] No. 14625 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As rank-and-file Tory members conspire to finally oust Theresa May from No. 10, the party is facing a donor rebellion that will restrict its ability to campaign during the upcoming EU Parliamentary vote, and also leave it in a difficult position if the opposition succeeds in its push for a general election.

Donors from the business community, who in the past have been a significant source of financing for the Tories, are abandoning the party and instead donating to either campaigns for a second Brexit referendum, or Nigel Farage's Brexit Party (which is leading the Tories in the EU Parliament elections polls) or Boris Johnson's leadership campaign, according to Business Insider.

The shortage of funds has reportedly left the Tories with just £1.5 million ($2 million) in the bank.

The situation has grown so dire that the CEO of the party, Mick Davis, has reportedly been forced to dip into his own pockets to cover some of the costs of the upcoming EU Parliamentary vote. He has reportedly told MPs that supporters have refused to donate because of the infighting over Brexit, which has threatened to tear the party apart.

"There’s a lot of money sloshing around, but most of it isn’t going to the Conservatives," said one source who spoke with BI. "The conservative party is struggling because people don't think they're delivering on their promises," another said.

The support for another referendum comes as Labour has reportedly re-committed to supporting a second referendum if they can't secure a general election.

"Donors have identified other vehicles for their particular cause. If you’re a hedge fund manager who’s a keen Brexiteer, you will donate to Boris’s campaign. If you’re a business which backs a second referendum, you will donate to Right to Vote."


Republican Lawmaker Warns Fellow Americans To Be Prepared For Another Civil War Reader 05/02/2019 (Thu) 16:38:30 Id: 0f914d [Preview] No. 14623 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/IoKi1

Washington state Republican Rep Matt Shea has warned American citizens that a civil war is coming to America.

According to audio obtained by left-wing newspaper the Guardian, Rep Shea and radio host John Jacob Schmidt, told attendees at a north-eastern religious compound last year to “arm themselves” ahead of a looming civil war.

Theguardian.com reports:

In his speech at God and Country last June, which immediately followed Shea’s speech, Robertson said: “Of course, you all know that you should have an AR-15 and a thousand rounds of ammo, right? Because Antifa is kicking up and getting ready to defend, right?”

Shea’s speech flirted with themes of civil war, but mostly focused on the idea of separating eastern Washington out into a separate political entity, with the view of having “an entire geographic area repent”.

He began by proposing “a simple idea that may make you cringe a little at first. And that idea is that liberty must be kept by force.”

Shea said the reason America was no longer a “beacon of Christianity”, was “because of compromise. And it’s not knowing that the communists are training, they’re planning, they’re organizing and they are lying in wait.”

Sociopaths Leading The Way To Debt Insolvency, Hyperinflation And Economic Ruin Reader 05/01/2019 (Wed) 15:23:03 Id: d9f5f4 [Preview] No. 14616 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
No one seems to care that a government already over $22 trillion in debt is on schedule to borrow another $990 million this year. All of this is occurring as individual Americans further enslave themselves with higher debt loads and retail stores fail over the inability to pay back the money they borrowed. But there are many reasons to be concerned about government spending.

The debt-based system we live under won’t sustain itself forever. Don’t get us wrong, the sociopaths in government and at the Federal Reserve (central bankers) will prop it up for as long as possible, but it is doomed to fail. That $22 trillion doesn’t include unfunded liabilities either, making the situation even uglier.

According to ABC News, The Treasury Department on Monday projected that borrowing in the April-June quarter would total $30 billion. Borrowing in the July-September period, the final quarter of the budget year will total $160 billion. The $990 billion borrowing total for the 2019 budget year would be down from $1.2 trillion borrowed in 2018. But both years are up from 2017’s $519 billion in government borrowing.

The Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEE) reported that the deficits are likely to double within ten years, making this an issue that could impoverish everyone. There are 5 reasons why the national debt is a big problem and why everyone should be worried about it.

Benefits Spending: Most federal spending is for subsidy and benefit programs, not for activities that increase productivity. Subsidy and benefit programs distort the economy and generally reduce overall output and incomes. Those distortions occur whether spending is financed by debt or current taxes. But the availability of debt financing induces policymakers to increase overall spending, which at the margin goes toward lower-valued activities.

Tax Damage Compounded: When taxes are extracted to pay for government spending, it induces people to change their working and investing activities, which distorts the economy and reduces growth. When spending is financed by borrowing, the tax damage is pushed to the future and compounded with interest costs.

Investment Reduced: Government borrowing may “crowd out” private investment and thus reduce future output and incomes. Economist James Buchanan said: “By financing current public outlay by debt, we are, in effect, chopping up the apple trees for firewood, thereby reducing the yield of the orchard forever.” The crowd out will be reduced if private saving rises to offset government deficits. But the CBO says “the rise in private saving is generally a good deal smaller than the increase in federal borrowing.” Government debt may also deter investment through expectations—businesses will hesitate to invest if rising debt creates fears of tax increases down the road.

Borrowing from Abroad: A decline in private investment due to government borrowing may be avoided if capital is attracted from abroad. Indeed, huge federal borrowing has been facilitated by global capital markets, and today more than 40 percent of the federal debt is held by foreigners. Borrowing from abroad may prevent a fall in domestic investment, but it does not prevent the shifting of costs to future taxpayers. As government debt rises, more of our future earnings will be taxed to pay interest and principal on the government’s debt to foreigners.

Macroeconomic Instability: CBO warns that a “large and continuously growing federal debt would … increase the likelihood of a fiscal crisis in the United States.” Experience shows that high levels of government debt tend to reduce growth and increase financial fragility. In their study of financial crises through history, Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff concluded, “again and again, countries, banks, individuals, and firms take on excessive debt in good times without enough awareness of the risks that will follow when the inevitable recession hits.” Government debt, they found, “is certainly the most problematic, for it can accumulate massively and for long

The media is already propagating for the government and has a hissy fit when one even suggests cuts to spending. In fact, politicians are pandering to the illogical masses about creating a huge spending program called “Medicare for All” and wiping out over $1 trillion in student loan debt. Those will just bring the eventual economic collapse closer as the U.S. is past the point of return. The country will collapse in the future.

It is impossible for anyone to take a country this silly seriously. Consequently, American power is collapsing. Even Washington’s well paid puppets in Germany, Britain, and France are showing signs of independence that have not been seen since the days of Charles DeGaulle.

The Russians, Chinese, Iranians, and North Koreans know that they are dealing with fools, and they are not going to take any chances. They know that no agreement with America means anything and that Washington speaks only with a forked tongue.

Washington is going to be increasingly frustrated abroad as willingness to cooperate with the insane asylum vanishes. The consequence will be increasing tyranny at home.

Hopefully, two central banks have been run out of the country in the past, I think the last one around the civil war era? Not too sure on that. Regardless, when this system crashes (and it will at some point) hopefully we can elect someone who will stand up to these kike bankers and shut the Fed down. Maybe go back to a silver or gold standard (if we have enough reserves for it).
