MODERN SOVIET UNION, EU, ADOPTS INTERNET CENSORSHIP MEASURES, CONTENT FILTERING Reader 06/20/2018 (Wed) 13:31:04 Id: c2ff2f [Preview] No. 10458 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The EU's plans to modernize copyright law in Europe are moving ahead. The Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament (JURI) just adopted several proposals, including the controversial "upload filters." Pirate Party MEP Julia Reda is disappointed but notes that the fight is not over yet.

Through a series of new proposals, the European Commission is working hard to modernize EU copyright law.

These plans have not been without controversy. In particular, Article 13 of the proposed Copyright Directive has been widely criticized as it would pressure online services to monitor and filter uploaded content.

The article states that online services are liable for any uploaded content unless they take “effective and proportionate” action to prevent copyright infringements, as identified by copyright holders.

That also includes preventing allegedly infringing files from being reuploaded, which implies some form of hash filtering and continuous monitoring of all user uploads.

Today, the Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament (JURI) voted on the issue. With a 15 to 10 majority, the Article 13 proposal of Rapporteur Voss was adopted. This means that the plans move ahead in their current form, despite massive public outcry.

Over the past year, we have repeatedly covered the widespread opposition. Legal scholars, digital activists, politicians, all worried that the upload restrictions would violate the rights of regular Internet users.

In recent weeks, the wave of protests swelled. More prominent figures sounded the alarm bell, including Internet pioneer Vint Cerf, World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, the Internet Archive’s Brewster Kahle, and Jimmy Wales from Wikipedia.

The law is not to enforce standard copyright law, thats only a ruse. Its to hold all owners of website forums / image boards / interactive blogs / social media services / file hosts / etc. ACCOUNTABLE for what their users do or post. It mandates upload filtering algorithms similar to deep packet inspection to block unwanted or forbidden content (and this could literally apply to anything, even a picture taken from a copywritten movie: think memes).

If they try enforcing this wide scale they are crazy - the backlash would be extreme. As far as European web providers, they will suffer the brute force as every content owner will simply switch to US-based providers or services in other countries OUTSIDE the EU's jurisdiction.

There is a virtual anti-spam 'shield' set in place on most image boards if you use stuff like VPNs or Tor, you have to fill out the block bypass captcha and click the button, then reload the web page and you can post as usual.

I think the the real purpose is to get alternative places like this site - among other chans - shut down. Why? Not because of copyright infringement but because they look at alternative platforms as a threat. So they are simply going to bully smaller forums and user-friendly websites into content filtering compliance. Why? To shut up the dissent. To shut down legitimate debates. To shut up people like us who they shun as (to put it in Hillary's context) "the deplorables" (and make no mistake that goes for everyone, not just Trump's fan club). They don't like free speech and they want it gone.

Well I have news for them, I'm not intimidated, they are going to earn a whole lot more hatred from the general public by censoring our content. They'll go down as tyrants, mark my words. The internet will figure out solutions and those solutions will leave them with even less control then before.

Attacks Against Open Internet Expanding: PayPal Is Cutting Off Donation Payments To P2P Services Reader 06/20/2018 (Wed) 14:29:24 Id: f7f839 [Preview] No. 10460 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Soulseek, one of the oldest file-sharing applications around, has been banned from accepting donations through PayPal due to piracy concerns. According to digital rights group EFF, which tried to intervene on behalf of Soulseek, this is a form of "financial censorship" that's become increasingly widespread.

Founded around the turn of the last century, Soulseek is a small dinosaur in the file-sharing world.

Created by former Napster programmer Nir Arbel, the application swiftly turned into a tight community of music fans, which is still active today.

Over the years Soulseek operators Nir and Roz Arbel have seen other file-sharing tools come and go, but all this time they remained dedicated to their principles. Despite its name, Soulseek had long found its purpose.

While it kept a relatively low profile, Soulseek is not immune to the “stigma” that comes with being a file-sharing tool. In 2015, PayPal cut off its ability to collect donations, claiming that sharing tools required pre-approval, even though that policy didn’t exist when it signed up.

Soulseek is not a profit-oriented platform but donations are welcomed. Without PayPal, this became a challenge, but luckily for the developers, the Electonic Frontier Foundation (EFF) was able to intervene.

February 2016 everything returned to normal when the PayPal account was restored, for a while at least. Earlier his year, PayPal apparently changed its mind and booted the application once again.

Soulseek operator Roz Arbel was told that the application violated the payment service’s acceptable use policy and that ‘pre-approval’ was required for ‘file-sharing’ tools. It was pretty much the same recycled argument from years before.

Faced with this deja-vu, Soulseek turned to EFF for help once again, but this time PayPal wouldn’t budge.

I rarely ever use paypal, I do my best to stay away from using them. I think Paypal has blocked other legit transactions as well, its just another one of those establishment monopolies like Google or Amazon. I avoid those services like the plague. I should donate some money to Soulseek because I do use it.

Oy Vey! Netanyahu's Wife Arrested For Fraud Reader 06/21/2018 (Thu) 11:22:42 Id: 428f8b [Preview] No. 10474 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit charged the prime minister’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, for fraud with aggravated circumstances and breach of public trust in the “Prepared Food Affair,” in an explosive development which shook the country on Thursday.

When Leah Rabin was about to be indicted in 1977, then-prime minister Yitzhak Rabin resigned from office due to his wife’s scandal.

The expectation is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not considering such a move, but the indictment damages him politically in an atmosphere in which The Jerusalem Post recently reported that he too is likely to face an indictment announcement in the coming months or in early 2019.

Though the Post had learned about two weeks ago that an indictment would likely be coming down soon, there were continuous efforts to reach a plea bargain right down to the end, which left things up in the air and created an ongoing drama.

Other media had also reported in recent months that the actual indictment could be filed shortly after the Passover holiday in May, but then Netanyahu’s defense lawyers approached Mandelblit with a dramatic offer.

They offered to return some of the funds Netanyahu is accused of obtaining fraudulently and to take public responsibility, as long as she would not be slapped with any kind of criminal record.

Ultimately, despite media reports that a deal might be near, the Post’s sources proved correct that no deal was reached, leading to an indictment.

The indictment was also delayed from May until now following Nir Hefetz, a former close adviser to the Netanyahu family, providing new evidence against Sara Netanyahu. Although Hefetz is primarily a state’s witness against the prime minister for Case 4000 the Bezeq-Walla! Affair, he also provided material against Sara.

A pre-indictment hearing in January, where Sara Netanyahu’s lawyers asked Mandelblit to reverse his preliminary decision in September 2017 to indict her, also had failed to sway him.

Common Sense To Prevail? Merkel Likely To Cave On Amnesty Crisis Issue, Beef Up Border Security Reader 06/19/2018 (Tue) 17:06:06 Id: 9a75d6 [Preview] No. 10434 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

With her coalition government bitterly split over the migration issue, Angela Merkel is ready to work jointly with Italy to stem the tide of refugees flowing into Europe.

“We want to support Italy’s desire for solidarity, and also hope that Germany receives understanding when it comes to European solidarity on the question of migration,” Merkel said when meeting Italy’s new Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in Berlin on Monday.

The two agreed to beef up the EU’s external border police, Frontex, and cooperate with international organizations to deal with the root causes of migration in Africa and the Middle East.

Merkel and Conte also agreed that people seeking asylum in Europe should have their applications processed in their own or transit countries before they are allowed to enter the EU.

Italy, who is bearing the brunt of the burden of handling the wave of migrants arriving from North Africa and the Middle East, wants other EU countries to assume part of this burden.

“The Italian borders are European borders,” Giuseppe Conte said.

Conte, who was visiting Germany for the first time since assuming office on June 1, said Italy wanted changes to EU immigration rules to ensure other member-states share the onus of handling refugees.

Current rules stipulate that refugees need to register their asylum application in the first EU country they arrive in.

Be patient and pray to see it happen. It just may someday if the AfD party ever tops the election results and can form a like-minded coalition. Merkel is desperate right now just to keep her coalition going, so much so that she is willing to compromise on border security and limiting migrant influx so that alone is a sign that people are getting fed up and tired of her bullshit.

Depends on what you consider to be a German. A Muslim may very well kill the stupid bitch. Germany is clearly infested with Muslim and African immigrants, as media shills of their country insist "those are Germans". Even when born in Germany, they're not German. Only ethnic people of every nation belong to that nation. More than closing borders, all immigrants need to be expelled.

I agree the migrants need to be expelled but that won't happen until the AfD (or some other nationalist party) in Germany gets a majority and forms a coalition. People often tell others "oh don't vote, your just wasting your time (blah blah)" when in reality that is exactly how people are mostly likely able to throw leaders like Merkel out of office and replace them. More leaders have been thrown out peacefully by the ballot box than actually assassinated in the last 100 years [exclude state-run regime change operations that may have involved "kill lists" of-course].

Global Markets Tumble As Trade War Fears Spike, DOW Crashes, China Markets Crash Too Reader 06/19/2018 (Tue) 14:15:16 Id: 85afba [Preview] No. 10430 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Stocks fell sharply on Tuesday after President Donald Trump's latest threat to China increased fears of an impending trade war between the world's largest economies.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 374 points, with Boeing and Caterpillar as the worst-performing stocks in the index. The 30-stock index also erased all of its gains for the year.

The S&P 500 dropped 1 percent, with materials, industrials and tech all falling more than 1 percent. The Nasdaq composite dropped 1.2 percent.

"At some point you've got to wonder how many times stocks are going to react to the same general bit of news. It may all just be a game of one-up-manship as a negotiating tactic to get to some sort of deal," said Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at Baird. However, "with investor optimism as high as it is, there might not be much margin for error, and there is a real risk that this starts to erode consumer and business confidence."

Shares of some of the biggest chipmakers fell given their large exposure to China. Qualcomm and Nvidia both dropped at least 1.5 percent. On average, semiconductor and semiconductor equipment companies get 52 percent of their revenue from China, according to a recent report from Morgan Stanley.

Ford Motor, which also does a large amount of business in China, saw its stock pull back about 2.4 percent. Meanwhile, Caterpillar and Boeing — considered to be two bellwethers for trade tensions on Wall Street —both dropped at least 2 percent.

Trump asked the United States Trade Representative to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for additional tariffs, at a rate of 10 percent. If China "refuses to change its practices" and insists on continuing with the new tariffs it recently declared, then the additional levies would be imposed on Beijing, Trump said Monday night.

Soon after, the Chinese Commerce Ministry issued a response, stating that the latest threat of more tariffs violates previous negotiations and consensus reached between both the U.S. and China. "The United States has initiated a trade war that violates market laws and is not in accordance with current global development trends," the ministry said.

In light of the escalating tit-for-tat trade war, which so far shows no signs of stopping, and to the contrary appears to be accelerating, S&P futures have fallen sharply throughout the session, while Dow futures are -340 points, with the cash index set for its 6th consecutive down day.

The MSCI index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 1.9 percent to its lowest since early December. The losses intensified through the day as the rout deepened in China where the 3,000 support level in the Shanghai Composite finally gave way as Beijing's "National Team" plunge protectors failed to step in after Monday's holiday, resulting in the lowest close in nearly two years as the Shanghai Composite Index plunged 3.8%, its lowest since June 27, 2016, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng .HSI shed as much 3 percent before ending 2.8% down.

“Trump appears to be employing a similar tactic he used with North Korea, by blustering first in order to gain an advantage in negotiations,” said Kota Hirayama, senior emerging markets economist at SMBC Nikko Securities in Tokyo.

“The problem is, such a tactic is unlikely to work with China.”

Predictably, hardest hit were tech stocks which stand to suffer the most in any direct trade war, with Orient Securities, 360 Security Technology plunging by the 10% daily limit, while the tech heavy Shenzhen Composite index crashed -5.9%, while the ChiNext Index of small-cap and tech shares slumped 4.8%, to its lowest level in more than three years, and is now 61% below peak reached in June 2015. Not even the PBOC adding liquidity with 200BN MLF operation and net 50BN reverse repo injection helped boost sentiment.

China’s economy has already been clouded by a sharp slowdown in fixed asset investment growth due to the government’s deleveraging drive, a problematic property sector, a mounting debt burden and rising credit defaults. Economists at Nomura wrote, “The rising risk of a disruptive trade conflict makes a bad situation tentatively worse.”

Elsewhere, Japan's Nikkei lost 1.8%, South Korea's KOSPI dropped 1.3% while Australian stocks bucked the trend and added 0.1%, helped by a depreciating currency and an overnight bounce in commodity prices.

In Europe it was more of the same, with the Stoxx Europe 600 tumbling for a third day. The stock move in Europe was tempered by a weaker euro, however, which unlike its reaction to last week's trade jitters, promptly tumbled, wiping out all of Monday's gains. European mining stocks lead the Stoxx 600 Index down to touch lowest level since late-April; the export-heavy DAX underperformed, sliding 1.4% as automakers continue declines.

Forcing China into a stalemate? They'll likely begin liquidating their US Treasury bonds along with Russia. Next comes Europe... and then US dollar hyperinflation. This will force the US government to default on ALL debts, mass spending cuts and to re-industrialize the nation and force citizens into productive jobs: manufacturing, mining, farming, ranching, processing, milling, refining, engineering, construction, etc. Bootstrapping America back to the good 'ol days. And we'll be making in America and selling in America.

Good! Trump Administration To Cancle All US Aid To Countries That Open Their Borders, Destabilize Nations Reader 06/19/2018 (Tue) 19:11:57 Id: d7b438 [Preview] No. 10438 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Countries that allow immigrants to infiltrate America will no longer be eligible for US aid, President Trump claimed Tuesday.

Speaking at the National Federation of Independent Businesses 75th Anniversary Celebration, the president touched on a few of his upcoming plans to put pressure on nations sending illegal immigrants.

“Think of all that aid we give to some of these countries. Hundreds of millions of dollars we give to these countries, and they send them up,” the President said.

I want to take a moment to address the current illegal immigration crisis on the Southern Border…it has been going on for many, many decades… pic.twitter.com/1F7EK9Ef88

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2018

“Well, I’m going to go very shortly for authorization that when countries abuse us by sending their people up – not their best – we’re not going to give any more aid to those countries. Why the hell should we? Why should we?” the president said to great applause.

Trump doubled down on his administration’s immigration enforcement on Twitter Tuesday, saying, “We must always arrest people coming into our Country illegally.”

“Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a very dangerous trip, and only 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our Country illegally on numerous occasions,” the President pointed out.

The issue has taken center stage in light of nonstop fake news mainstream media coverage of illegal immigrant children separated from their families.

Why is that? Because we are getting fed up with illegal foreigners invading our country as they do to Europe?

If anything has been dumbing down the public it has been the TV set, brain-altering SSRIs pushed by Big Pharma because "muh depression!", violent gangster entertainment and the mass quantities of heroin hitting our streets.

I guess I must have read his statement wrong. You are correct, any country that we provide aid to who ends up sending us a bunch of foreign thugs in return will have their aid cut off - and rightfully so. I don't agree with Trump on everything, but this I do agree with him on.

Good! Italy Rejects Two More NGO Migrant Ships Reader 06/18/2018 (Mon) 15:06:18 Id: af9728 [Preview] No. 10400 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Italy demanded on Saturday that the Netherlands recall two NGO-operated migrant transport ships flying the Dutch flag, after Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini warned that they would not be allowed to dock in Italian ports.

The ships are currently sitting off the coast of Libya.

“They should know that Italy no longer wants to be an accomplice in the business of illegal immigration and therefore they will have to aim for other, non-Italian, ports,” Salvini said in a Friday post on Facebook.

The blocked NGO ships come on the heels of Italy's refusal to take in a boat full of 629 shipwrecked migrants picked up off the coast of Libya - a move ushered in by the Italian government's new populist coalition headed by Salvini.

"We are finished being doormats," tweeted Salvini on Sunday.

After Salvini's comments, one of the Dutch-flagged NGOs, Mission Lifeline, tweeted in German "When fascists promote us..." to which Salvini fired back over Twitter "insults and threats will not stop us."

“The issue of migrants is epic and Europe has remained detached for years about it, having inappropriate procedures in place before this issue became so severe,” Italy Foreign Affairs Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi said, according to interview in Corriere della Sera.

On Saturday, France agreed to accept some of the 629 migrants from 26 countries rescued by the MV Aquarius following an international spat between French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian authorities which led to Spain agreeing to take them in.

After Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini refused to accept the NGO vessel packed with shipwrecked immigrants, Macron said that Italy was "playing politics" with the migrants, and that the Italian government had displayed "cynicism and irresponsibility."

Europe should escape the EU immediately

If only Italy rejects migrants coming in, it'll come to other countries first, and when they become "citizens" will later come to Italy because of the Schengen Area.

It is futile if only a few countries reject migrants, European countries should reject them en mass.

But it is a start. Also be wary of Jewish/Communist/Zionist controlled opposition that say they're anti-EU but all they will do is ridicule themselves, and attempt futile things.

OK, the point is we need to elect those who will not destabilize their nations (as Hungary, Poland, Italy, the Czech Republic and Austria have already done). You cannot just complain about the problems, and then argue against some common sense solutions (such as voting more nationalist politicians in). If everyone were defeatist they'd run around blaming the Jews all day and do absolutely nothing to curb their agendas. It takes an angry voter base to keep throwing wrenches into their destructive system.

I AGREE. European nations need to get the hell out of the EU. Can't do that unless you force political change and that starts with electing the right people!

BOOM! Russia And India Ditch Dollar In Military Deals Reader 06/19/2018 (Tue) 18:22:37 Id: e92b8a [Preview] No. 10437 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

With the US increasingly willing to use the dollar, and SWIFT, as a strategic weapon against the country's sovereign enemies (as Iran learned every 5 or so years), Russia and India are preparing to bypass US sanctions on Moscow by using the rupee and the ruble in bilateral trade involving military deals, the Economic Times reported.

Some $2 billion in weapons deals between India and Russia have been hit as a result of the recent US sanctions, as payments get stuck. The countries are seeking to bypass such monetary bottlenecks this by switching to settlements in domestic currencies and ditching the greenback.

Senior officials told ET that after several rounds of consultations, it has become clear that a rupee-rouble transfer, pegged to the exchange rate of an international currency, is the solution. A top official said that a foreign currency, such as the Singapore dollar, could be used as the benchmark.

Until now, India signed defense contracts with Russia for which payments are made in US dollars. However, as US sanctions making this virtually impossible, contractual payments have been frozen since April.

The involuntary loss of India as a Russian customer has had significant effects on the Russian economy: the Asian country is one of the largest buyers of military equipment from Russia, having signed military contracts worth $65BN since the 1960s.

With current trade deals between the two countries estimated at around $12 billion, it is imperative for Russia to way to find a loophole to US sanctions. Furthermore, just like Turkey, India is ready to purchase Russia's state of the art S400 air-defense system in a $5-billion deal. And just like in the case of Turkey - which overnight saw the US Senate block the sale of over over 100 F-35 juts to Erdogan precisely because of Ankara's overtures to Moscow - the sale is being heavily opposed by the United States.

The two nations have been struggling to find banks that would risk US sanctions for transferring the money between the two nations. Sources said that on the Indian side, the banks being talked to include Vijaya Bank and Indian Bank, while on the Russian side, its largest banking entity in India, Sberbank, has been involved in discussions.

Other options that were looked at included payments to non-sanctioned entities in Russia after its flagship arms trading company Rosoboronexport came under sanctions by the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

Good! Judge Rules Twitter Can Be Sued For Falsely Advertising They Allow Free Speech Reader 06/19/2018 (Tue) 13:43:39 Id: 716148 [Preview] No. 10428 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A California judge has ruled that social media giant Twitter can be sued for falsely advertising free speech. As Bloomberg reports, the judge said that Twitter’s policy of banning users “at any time, for any reason or for no reason” may constitute an “unconscionable contract” for a company which advertises free speech.

The judge rejected Twitter’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Jared Taylor, who was banned by the platform in December last year, according to Breitbart. Taylor, a self-described “white activist” may proceed with his lawsuit against Twitter because the social media company falsely advertises free speech, yet bans users for “any or no reason.” The judge also ruled that Twitter could be sued on the basis of misleading its users, due to the platform’s promise not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation, which is frequently violated.

“This ruling has massive implications for the platform going forward,” said Noah Peters, Jared Taylor’s lawyer. “this is the first time that a social media company’s argument that it can censor user speech has been rejected by a court.”

Taylor describes himself as a “race realist” and has defended white separatism, claiming that races are “not equal”, but his attorney says this trial is not about his client’s particular views, and that’s a correct assessment. The trial is about Twitter’s disallowance of free speech although they use that term to advertise the social media platform.

“Our lawsuit is not about whether Taylor is right or wrong,” Peters said in February. “It’s about whether Twitter and other technology companies have the right to ban individuals from using their services based on their perceived viewpoints and affiliations.”

By now, it should be well understood that the terms “hate facts” and “hate speech” are nothing more than buzzwords used by the left as an excuse to suppress the speech of those with which they disagree. This is becoming more and more apparent as we devolve quickly toward a fully totalitarian system too.

Breitbart reported that the most high-profile individual to be banned on this basis was Islam critic Tommy Robinson, who received a permanent ban from Twitter after he posted statistics showing that Muslims are vastly overrepresented in child grooming gangs in the UK. Robinson is now taking Twitter to court to prove that “facts are now treated as hate.” –SHTFPlan

Twitter employees have also been caught on camera boasting about their actions to keep conservatives and Trump supporters off the platform. They also, along with YouTube, have scrubbed videos that do not align with the government and mainstream media’s “official narrative” with regards to incidents such as the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

I know this may be hard for them to do, considering they like censoring facts, but Twitter might as well just be brutally honest and state "Twitter is not a platform for free speech, we can and will regulate political or social content." This way the users know what kind of platform Twitter really is and therefore cannot sue. In the meantime, it exposes what that company really is: politically bias and pro-censorship.
