US government has betrayed the internet

In Nerds only on September 6, 2013 at 11:10 am

Great article in The Guardian today regarding the unlawful surveillance of the internet by the USG.  By hacking online encryption the USG has betrayed businesses,  governments and citizens around the world.  This has resulted in a new cold war but on the internet.

On one side we have anarchist groups like Anonymous and whistle-blowers like Assange, Manning and Snowden.  On the other side we have out-of-control USG agencies like the NSA and CIA breaking all recognizable laws to invade our privacy in the name of the all-powerful national security state.  How could this possibly end well?

Grizzly bear hunting ban continues to be ignored

In BC Polytricks on September 5, 2013 at 11:05 am

Despite a bear hunting ban being imposed upon the central coast by all native nations, grizzly bear trophy hunting is still going on.  The latest idiot to defy the ban is a racist NHL hockey player who actually walked past a posted sign on native territory to kill a grizzly bear.  Here is a great documentary film released by the central coast native nations to raise awareness about the grotesque nature of the the grizzly hunt.

 

The Game of Polls

In Humour, Polytricks on August 26, 2013 at 8:14 am

Got a good laugh out of this Rap News spoof of the Oz elections with Julian Assange imitating Oz rock star John Farnham.. (complete with mullet)..  hilarious.

Julian Assange is running for a seat in the Australian Senate, that would allow him diplomatic immunity and allow him to leave the Ecudorian embassy in London (finally).

I sure hope the Auzzies do the right thing and elect him.

I really enjoyed this video reminder that Idle no More is here to stay.  (the Harper Occupation Government must go!.. ;o)

Did Snowden watch Good Will Hunting?

In Nerds only, Polytricks on July 5, 2013 at 8:45 am

Timely video clip from Good Will Hunting.. Snowden would have been an impressionable 15 year old when this movie came out.

What I notice is nobody from the US government has yet apologized for unwarranted and unlawful spying on like everyone….

The ‘war on terror’ is such a tawdry sham..

US mocked for civilian spying hypocrisy

You know you have lost all credibility when the Chinese are mocking your police state surveillance powers… ;o)

Great video from NMA TV in Taiwan.

Busted! Prism surveillance program out of control

In Nerds only on June 7, 2013 at 9:33 am

The Guardian released two bombshell revelations regarding out-of-control US government surveillance programs.

Anyone paying attention to the post-9/11 police-state takeover of lawful governments suspected this all along.

Everything we do with Microsoft, Google, Youtube, Skype, Yahoo etc is being tapped live and indefinitely retained.

Nobody seems to know why Twitter isn’t on this list, (yet).

There is zero privacy or legal rights in the brave new world of the ‘war on terror’ police-state.

We are all ‘terrorist suspects’ now….

Can Enbridge be trusted?

In BC Polytricks on May 5, 2013 at 6:53 am

Great short documentary about the endless lies that Enbridge spins to cover up its record of destroying whole communities and the environment.

Enbridge is a major corporate criminal, ask anyone in Kalamazoo, Michigan what happened after their oil sludge pipeline ruptured.

These oil-clowns need to be shut down for good and prosecuted.

They are boardroom pirates.. a gibbet is too good for them!.. pffttt!!

Finfisher caught spoofing Firefox

In Nerds only on May 2, 2013 at 7:25 am

Finfisher is at it again.  The spyware suite has been discovered spoofing the Firefox browser in Malaysia by Citizen Lab.

Firefox is plenty mad about this and has sent a legal cease and desist letter to the creepy spyware manufacturers.

Hats off once again to Citizen Lab for exposing the outrageous invasion of our privacy by the state and corporations.

Clearly the targets of this surveillance are pro-democracy activists, making a mockery out of the claims that this is about ‘police work’.

Congratulations Finfisher, you made on Reporters without Borders list of Corporate Enemies of the Internet.

I would love to see these creeps shut-down for good.. but they obviously have important friends in government.. pfffttt!!
