text MegaUpload Case -- US Seeks Dominion Over Cyberspace Brett Winterford via Kismo, Sunday, Jan 22 2012, 8:19pm
Have we had enough of America's 'permanent war,' 'indefinite detention,' neo-fascist policies or should we ALLOW the US to harness and control Cyberspace -- that is the principal issue behind the Assange and MegaUpload cases?

Not content with illegally invading weaker nations, plundering and killing thousands of innocent civilians -- all in the name of PROFIT -- the clearly criminal US now seeks dominion over Cyberspace, the last truly FREE social space left to humanity.

Anyone that takes anything at face value today is a fuckwit!

Savvy media analysts have been drawing attention to the NOT coincidental SOPA bill following hot on the heels of the 'indefinite detention' provision in the NDAA that servile Obama dutifully signed into law for his masters on New Year's Eve! (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

Congressman Ron Paul image Google (and other media) Suppress Ron Paul sysadmin, Friday, Jan 20 2012, 10:29pm
The story linked below covers Ron Paul introducing legislation on the floor of the House to REPEAL the plainly Nazi 'indefinite detention without trial or charge' provision in the NDAA, which shameless PUPPET president Obama signed into law on New Year's eve -- dig that for timing -- notwithstanding that Obama said he would veto the provision! But the WORLD has learned over the past four years that Obama reneges on all his promises and pledges, moreso than any other politician ON EARTH (suckers) -- so much for president 'INTEGRITY!'

Twenty four hours after Internet advocates held a GLOBAL online protest objecting to proposed anti-piracy legislation, which they claim is censorship at its worst and overreach at best, one of the world's largest file-sharing sites,, was shuttered by the FBI and arrest warrants served in New Zealand! [Draconian information control necessarily follows totalitarian Indefinite Detention law in the face of widespread, SUSTAINED, social paralysis/INACTION. As occurred in Nazi Germany, the best thing the civilised and educated German MASSES could do to stop Fascism's swift rise, was sit with their thumbs up their arses!] (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

With online shopping hitting record levels of adoption this past holiday season, it may seem to many that we're on the brink of a golden age of online commerce. But a hacking incident suffered by Zappos just last night could give some wary shoppers pause before making that next Internet purchase. (story and 1 image)

text 'Tracebook,' social media and Privacy stacy, Tuesday, Jan 3 2012, 7:13pm
Indeed, "Tracebook" is the pet name Australian police and agencies have given Facebook, as it functions as the most efficient (personal and social) information gathering tool in existence today. Who would have thought that almost an entire generation would willingly and openly publish highly personal information about themselves and their movements for the WORLD, CIA and other agencies to mine and use -- in most cases against the people mindlessly volunteering such information.

The latest misdirected US cold war strategy of ‘containing’ China with archaic ‘ASB’ Air-Sea Battle tactics, which a pack of ossified dunces in Washington worked out ‘all by themselves,’ is yet another indication of America’s RAPID decline in the most critical area of modern warfare -- the latest EXAMPLE of which is the hacking and safe landing of a 'state-of-the-art' US surveillance Drone in Iran. [Though due credit must be given to the Persians and ‘others’ that assisted in this demonstration.] (story and 1 comment)

It was only “a matter of time” before original team member, nano’s seminal paper on the subject became REALITY. It seems the US has ‘lost’ one of its most ‘sophisticated’ (a relative term, Jethro) stealth, surveillance UAV Drones over Iranian air space; what a tragedy for fascist America and what a boon for the FREE WORLD.

It's a hard life Eric, darling, and we guarantee to make it harder! image Google's Partiality and Data Suppression Indicated Yet Again Kismo, Sunday, Nov 27 2011, 10:05pm
Google's initial role as benign Search Engine has recently extended, with CIA partners, the Bilderberg Group and others, into areas that clearly indicate it is no longer the impartial SE it once was; its additional roles as a surveillance and data mining entity for various nefarious agencies has been covered in previous posts. However, it becomes plain that these new 'data management' activities COMPROMISE its neutrality and service to the public, as various appearances before both European and US anti-trust inquiries clearly indicate.

text The Most Dangerous Video on Youtube p(h)ill, Sunday, Nov 13 2011, 8:09am
Unlike the corporate orchestrated, designed to do nothing, 'Occupy (static) movement,' this effort, in stark contrast, is the most creative, radical and entertaining piece of semiotic activism I've seen in years. Well done, everyone involved!

Note the clever semantic inversions and how the mainstream disease is used to immunise instead of terrorise -- it's a form of semiotic vaccination protecting you from further infection. Enjoy!

text Western Governments Indirectly Admit Hackers Rule the Digital World Ryan Gallagher via Kismo, Wednesday, Nov 2 2011, 9:06am
The software companies mentioned in this story do not conform to the hacker ideal or ethic; by their own admission they seek PROFIT and have no moral problem with supplying their surveillance software to whomsoever wishes to purchase it. Real hackers have no difficulty accessing unlimited funds via their digital talents; elite hackers by nature are against all forms of social oppression and intrusions on personal privacy -- in other words surveillance states are anathema to hackers.

text Media Victory Overlooked quill, Saturday, Oct 8 2011, 12:31pm
I would like to announce that the alternative media has just notched up ANOTHER VICTORY against its Corporate rival. Obama, in his latest press conference was forced to answer questions on the 'OccupyWallStreet' protests -- that event follows coverage by the mass media, which had previously maintained a strict media blackout on all coverage of the protest movement. How does it feel now, lamers, outwitted again? (story and 1 comment)

text Google Censors #OccupyWallStreet Report staff report, Friday, Sep 30 2011, 10:56am
Over the past few years, we have had a few cases were Google decided to censor a report of ours from their search results. We documented one case publicly here. We usually don’t make a big deal about it online because people tend to just dismiss us as “crazy” when we do. However, this latest case is blocking our new report on the #OccupyWallStreet movement and we would like to bring it to the attention of the many supporters within the movement. The post is titled, A Report from the Frontlines: The Long Road to #OccupyWallStreet and the Origins of the 99% Movement.

googledollar.jpg image Google to Face Senate Hearings nano, Sunday, Sep 18 2011, 11:37am
Before I proceed with surveillance and information juggernaut Google, I would like to address the “too big to …..,” issue.

Only a few decades past, media concentration laws prohibited the formation of the HUGE information and media companies that exist today -- a direct result of relentless political lobbying and ‘sweetening’ by minority interests. I would also like to draw attention to the changes in society’s mobility, freedoms and liberties that have contracted as media concentration in fewer hands has increased – an undeniable correlation exists between the two phenomena.
