  • Lavabit — Encrypted Email Service Once Used by Snowden, Is Back

    Lavabit CEO Ladar Levison had custody of the service’s SSL encryption key that could have helped the government obtain Snowden’s password. Although the FBI insisted it was only after Snowden’s account, that was the key to the kingdom that would have helped the FBI agents obtain other users’ credentials as well.

    But rather than complying with the federal request that could compromise the communications of all of its customers, Levison preferred to shut down his encrypted email service, leaving its 410,000 users unable to access their email accounts.

    Now, Levison has announced that he is reviving Lavabit with a new architecture that fixes the SSL problem — which according to him, was the biggest threat — and includes other privacy-enhancing features that will help its users send emails that he can’t eavesdrop, even if ordered to do so.

    Levison is releasing the source code for an open-source end-to-end encrypted global email standard that promises surveillance-proof messaging that even hides the metadata on emails to prevent agencies like the NSA or FBI from being able to find out with whom Lavabit users communicate.

    Dubbed Dark Internet Mail Environment (DIME), the standard will be available on Github today, along with an associated mail server program called Magma, which is ready for use with the Dark Internet Mail Environment.

     

     

  • Billion-Dollar Hacker Gang Now Using Google Services to Control Its Banking Malware

    The Carbanak cyber gang has been found abusing various Google services to issue command and control (C&C) communications for monitoring and controlling the machines of unsuspecting malware victims.

    Forcepoint Security Labs researchers said Tuesday that while investigating an active exploit sent in phishing messages as an RTF attachment, they discovered that the Carbanak group has been hiding in plain site by using Google services for command and control.

    “The Carbanak actors continue to look for stealth techniques to evade detection,” Forcepoint’s senior security researcher Nicholas Griffin said in a blog post. “Using Google as an independent C&C channel is likely to be more successful than using newly created domains or domains with no reputation.”

     

Protest This

  • Republican Lawmakers in Five States Propose Bills to Criminalize Peaceful Protest

    On Saturday, the Women’s March on Washington will kick off what opponents of the incoming administration hope will be a new era of demonstrations against the Republican agenda. But in some states, nonviolent demonstrating may soon carry increased legal risks — including punishing fines and significant prison terms — for people who participate in protests involving civil disobedience. Over the past few weeks, Republican legislators across the country have quietly introduced a number of proposals to criminalize and discourage peaceful protest.

    The proposals, which strengthen or supplement existing laws addressing the blocking or obstructing of traffic, come in response to a string of high-profile highway closures and other actions led by Black Lives Matter activists and opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Republicans reasonably expect an invigorated protest movement during the Trump years.

    In North Dakota, for instance, Republicans introduced a bill last week that would allow motorists to run over and kill any protester obstructing a highway as long as a driver does so accidentally. In Minnesota, a bill introduced by Republicans last week seeks to dramatically stiffen fines for freeway protests and would allow prosecutors to seek a full year of jail time for protesters blocking a highway. Republicans in Washington state have proposed a plan to reclassify as a felony civil disobedience protests that are deemed “economic terrorism.” Republicans in Michigan introduced and then last month shelved an anti-picketing law that would increase penalties against protestors and would make it easier for businesses to sue individual protestors for their actions. And in Iowa a Republican lawmaker has pledged to introduce legislation to crack down on highway protests.

     

Truly The UNqualified One

  • Obama’s Legacy Makeover: An 8-Year Reality Check

    Barack Hussein Obama entertained his dwindling legion of constituents with farewell remarks Tuesday night — the last stop on his extensive “legacy makeover” tour that began after Donald Trump defeated his designated heir, Hillary Clinton.

    I should note that by “last stop,” I mean as “president.”

    Unlike his predecessor, Obama has no plans to quietly recede from the nation’s capital, as has been the practice of former presidents since 1796. In fact, the Obamas will be taking up residence in a nine-bedroom mansion in the District’s most exclusive neighborhood, and you can be certain that he’ll be out on his front stoop stumping for his failed policies every time Trump endeavors to alter or abolish one of them. Given that the Obama presidency has been the equivalent of a neutron bomb to the Democrat Party brand — leaving its structure intact while annihilating the human resources within it — is it any wonder that he’s so desperate for that legacy makeover?

    Leftist political analyst Ed Klein gleefully opines that Obama will be leading “a shadow government opposing the Trump administration,” while presidential historian Stephen Hess concludes that Obama’s adoring media will be “camping out on [his] doorstep.”

    Since George Washington delivered his extraordinary farewell remarks in 1796, such addresses have served as a bookend for a president to highlight the nation’s achievements under his tenure.

    The last great farewell address, indeed the greatest of the 20th century, was Ronald Reagan’s delivery of his inspirational paean to “the shining city upon a hill.” He humbly declared, “I wasn’t a great communicator, but I communicated great things, and they didn’t spring full bloom from my brow, they came from the heart of a great nation — from our experience, our wisdom, and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries.”

    Indeed, like President Washington, President Reagan departed office having affirmed the sense of the people that America’s best days were ahead.

    As is my practice, I will be rebutting some of Mr. Obama’s more salacious and fallacious assertions from his final national address.

    However, given it is his final address, let’s first review how he, and we, arrived at this point in history.

     

  • NEW: Pres. Obama writes a final thank you letter to Americans: “You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.”

    “Most powerful word in our democracy is the word ‘We.’ ‘We the People.’ ‘We shall overcome.’ Yes, we can.”.

Out With The Old

  • Davos Elites Call For a Ban on Physical Cash… in the US.

    Roughly two weeks ago, when writing about the cash ban in India, I stated:

    If you think the Elites aren’t watching this unfold with sheer delight you’re mistaken. Globally a war on cash has been declared. And India has now proved that it can be done with little consequence. The fact it INCREASE tax hauls (something every Government on the planet wants) is just icing on the cake.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-05/elites-dream-cash-ban-now-closer-ever

    Fast forward to this week at the Davos Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, and Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz all but said the exact same thing.

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already removed 86% of his country’s currency from circulation in an attempt to curb tax evasion, tackle corruption and shut down the shadow economy.

    Should the US follow suit?

    Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist, thinks so. Phasing out currency and moving towards a digital economy would, over the long term, have “benefits that outweigh the cost,” the Columbia University professor said on day one of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos…

    “I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency,” he said, “so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cyber-security, but it would certainly have big advantages.”

    https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/the-us-should-get-rid-of-cash-and-become-a-digital-economy-says-this-nobel-laureate-economist

    Again… the War on Cash is not slowing down. India effectively removed 86% of the physical cash in circulation and no one was forced to resign.

    Put simply, India signaled to the global elites that you can implement a near complete ban on physical cash, and there are no real consequences as far as political aspirations.

    We believe that the Elites will be pushing for this policy to hit the US. If you think this is impossible consider that Stiglitz openly called for the US to ban cash in the article above.

     

  • SWIFT global banking system pilots blockchain tech

    The global interbank messaging organization SWIFT is launching a proof-of-concept project using blockchain technology to keep track of cross-border bank funds in real time.

    In an announcement Thursday, the Brussels-based cooperative said a private blockchain based on Hyperledger — the open source software project hosted by the Linux Foundation — would monitor so-called nostro accounts of banks that volunteered for the pilot. Nostro accounts are foreign currency reserves maintained by banks in other countries where they do business.

    Currently, banks monitor their nostro funds “via debit and credit updates and end-of-day statements,” the SWIFT announcement says.

    “The maintenance and operational work involved represents a significant portion of the cost of making cross-border payments,” the statement goes on. Banks typically keep large pools of cash in nostro accounts, so they can settle transactions in that currency.

    Although blockchain is the technology underlying digital currencies like bitcoin, the pilot won’t use it to replace the money in those accounts. Instead it will provide all the banks that sign-up with a verifiable real-time record of all transactions in and out of their nostro accounts.

    Blockchain, also known as distributed ledger technology, or DLT, uses cryptographically guaranteed record-keeping and distributed computing to create an unforgeable record of a transaction that all parties have access to.

    The pilot, which will launch early this year, “will test whether distributed ledgers may be able to help banks reconcile those nostro accounts more efficiently and in real time, lowering costs and operational risk,” SWIFT says.

    Despite the pilot, Wim Raymaekers, who heads SWIFT’s global payments innovation initiative sounded a somewhat skeptical note.

    “Whilst existing DLTs are not currently mature enough for cross-border payments, this technology, bolstered by some additional features from SWIFT, may be interesting for the associated account reconciliation,” he said in a statement.


Pardon Me

  • Assange would agree to extradition if Obama pardons Chelsea Manning, WikiLeaks says

    WikiLeaks said Thursday that its founder Julian Assange will agree to be extradited to the U.S. if President Barack Obama grants clemency to Chelsea Manning.

    WikiLeaks made the announcement on Twitter and remained adamant that the Department of Justice case against Assange was unconstitutional.

    GUNNED-DOWN DNC STAFFER’S FATHER DOUBTS WIKILEAKS LINK AS COPS SEEK ANSWERS

    Assange has been hiding out at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations. According to AFP, Assange fears Stockholm would extradite him to the U.S. after WikiLeaks published thousands of secret cables from the U.S. military, which were leaked by Manning during his time as a U.S. soldier.

    Manning is serving a 35-year sentence for handing more than 700,000 documents to the State Department. He’s currently being held at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas.

  • WikiLeaks to US: Assange will turn himself in if you pardon Manning

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would agree to serve prison time in the United States in exchange for President Barack Obama granting clemency to Chelsea Manning, the group’s Twitter account said Thursday.

    “If Obama grants Manning clemency, Assange will agree to US prison in exchange — despite its clear unlawfulness,” the group said.

    An attorney for Assange, Barry Pollack, told CNN Thursday that the deal would have to include a pardon for Manning, who was convicted in 2013 of stealing and disseminating 750,000 pages of documents and videos to WikiLeaks in what has been described as the largest leak of classified material in US history. Manning was found guilty of 20 of the 22 charges against her, including violations of the US Espionage Act.

    Assange has been granted political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London as he fights extradition to Sweden, where he faces sexual assault allegations. He has said he fears extradition to Sweden could lead to another extradition to the US, where he could face the death penalty if he is charged and convicted of publishing government secrets through WikiLeaks.

    Thursday’s tweet offering the deal was posted along with a letter from Pollack addressed to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that pressed the Department of Justice to provide information about its ongoing criminal investigation into his client.

    Pollack argued in the letter, which was written last month, that over the course of the investigation into Assange, which is in its sixth year, the Justice Department “revised the department’s regulations with respect to obtaining evidence from and charging members of the news media.”

    Pollack also said “the department publicly announced it was closing its criminal investigation of the handling of classified information by Hillary Clinton,” as another development that justifies more transparency into the case against Assange.

 

When Pigs Fly Flu Meets Measles

  • The big one: how environmental killing becomes a medical disease

    “To handle all that [pig-farm feces] waste, farmers in North Carolina use a standard practice called the lagoon and spray field system. They flush feces and urine from barns into open-air pits called lagoons, which turn the color of Pepto-Bismol when pink-colored bacteria colonize the waste. To keep the lagoons from overflowing, farmers spray liquid manure on their fields nearby. The result, says Steve Wing, an epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is this: ‘The eastern part of North Carolina is covered with shit’.”National Geographic, 10/30/14

    The above quote describes corporate pig farming around the world.

    In order to carry out this operation, giant companies like Smithfield have influenced legislators and government-agency officials. Environmental laws and regulations are ignored, or changed. Lawsuits are fought, hammer and tongs.

    Here is what Robert F Kennedy Jr. told radio interviewer, Rachel Lewis Hilburn on 6/3/16:

    “…a hog produces ten times the amount of fecal waste by weight as a human being, so if you have a facility that has ten thousand hogs in it, it’s producing as much sewage as a city of a hundred thousand people. Smithfield has one plant in Utah—they call it Circle Four Farms—that has a million hogs on it, so it’s producing the same amount of waste as New York City every day.”

    Here is Kennedy’s kicker:

    “There’s no difference between hog waste and human waste in terms of its danger to human health. They [Smithfield and other giant corporate pig operations] ought to have to have a sewage treatment plant that cleans it up. And yet, if they had to build that sewage treatment plan, it would drive the price of hogs up so that they could no longer function in the marketplace… they ought to have to build sewage treatment facilities but nobody’s making them do that because they have used political clout…”

    All right, that’s a bit of background. Now I’m going to shift to the subject of Swine Flu, the phony epidemic of 2009.

    Where did it start?


  • “This error became the basis of the belief in the existence of all pathogenic viruses”

    “They performed no control experiments” “This error became the basis of the belief in the existence of all pathogenic viruses”

 

  • Der Bundesgerichtshof hat entschieden: Wir haben den Masern-Virus-Prozess endgültig gewonnen!

    The Federal court has decided that We have won the measles Virus process are final.   Dear readers,
    we wish you a peaceful and successful year 2017, which begins for us, for you and for all people with a good message:
    The Federal court of justice (BGH) decided in measles-Virus-process. The I. civil Senate of the BGH has confirmed the judgment by the Oberlandesgericht Stuttgart (higher regional court) from the 16.2.2016. In the year 2011 by me, which was awarded € 100,000 for a scientific proof of the existence of the alleged measles Virus does not need to be paid to the plaintiff. This was also condemned to pay all costs of the proceedings.
    In the process, have brought five experts and the results of scientific research presented. All five reviewers, including the only court representative, Prof. Dr. Dr. Andreas Podbielski have consistently found that none of the six are in the process of tabled publications contains a scientific evidence for the existence of the alleged measles Virus.
    Genetics disproves existence of allegations
    In the process, the results of studies on the so-called genetic fingerprinting were introduced fingerprint of the alleged measles Virus. Two recognized laboratories, including the world’s largest and leading genetic Institute, came independently to exactly the same results. The results prove that the authors of the six publications of the measles Virus were wrong process and as a direct result of today, all of the measles virologists are mistaken: you have interpreted the normal components of cells as components of the suspected measles-Virus fails.
    Because of this error in a decades-long consensus-building process were brought together, normal cell components conceptually to a model of a measles Virus. An actual structure that corresponds to this model, was found neither in man, nor in an animal. With the results of the genetic investigations of all existence-claims to the measles Virus are refuted scientifically.
    The authors of the six publications, and all other parties Involved, this error is not noticed, because they violate the fundamental scientific duty, “lege artis”, to work according to the internationally defined rules of science. They performed no control experiments. The implementation of the control experiments would have protected authors and humanity prior to this momentous mistake. This error was the basis for the belief in the existence of all disease-causing viruses. [1] The court-appointed expert Prof. Dr. Dr. Podbielski has due to the demand of the trial court on page 7 at the top of the Protocol [2] explicitly confirmed that the authors, no control experiments.
    The Stuttgart higher regional court overturned the 16.2.2016 the failure judgment of the first instance dismissed the action and referred to the Central message of Prof. Podbielski of the six publications. The plaintiff tried to bring a complaint to the Supreme court, the judgment of the OLG case. As justification, he brought his subjective but factually incorrect perception of the process sequence in Stuttgart, and the claim that our naming of facts is measles a threat to public health. The allegations of the plaintiff were rejected by the BGH, with clear words.Thus, the court has theJudgment of the OLG Stuttgart from 16.2.2016 [3] to confirm.
    Conclusions
    The six in the process of submitted publications the relevant publications for “measles Virus.” There are in addition to these six publications evidence of no other publications in which scientific methods have been tried to prove the existence of the measles Virus, have now the Supreme court judgment in the measles-Virus process and the results of the genetic investigations of the consequences will be All the national and international statements about the suspected measles Virus, Infectivity of measlesUse and safety of measles vaccination have been deprived of the semblance of a scientific approach, and thus the legal Basis.
    By requests, which triggered competitions to the measles Virus-price, has stood the head of the National reference Institute for measles, at the Robert Koch-Institute (RKI), Prof. Dr. Annette Mankertz, an important fact. This admission may explain the increased vaccine damage rate, specifically the measles-vaccination and why, and how this vaccination increased autism triggers. [4] Prof. Mankertz has admitted that the “measles Virus” contains typical cellular components (ribosomes, the protein factories of the cells). Since the measles vaccination from “whole measles virus”, vaccine, cellular structures. This explains why the measles vaccine has been more frequent and more severe allergies and auto-triggers immune responses than other vaccines. The court expert Prof. Podbielski stated several times that to submit with the statement of the RKI ribosomes in the measles virus, the existence-claims of a measles Virus.
    In the process, as well files was informed that the highest scientific authority in the field of infectious diseases, the RKI has, contrary to its statutory mandate in section 4 of the infection protection act (IfSG) to create studies of the alleged measles Virus, and to publish. The RKI claims that it has conducted internal investigations for measles Virus, but refuses to give the results to hand over or publish.
    Donations
    By the measles Virus process, anti-social reporting by the media, the right to the left of the press, we have need to financial loss. We have learned a lot from the process, are strengthened emerged and the topic has become through the process known internationally. As a result, we have contributed to the false assumptions of present-day biology, medicine, and Virology are globally recognized and resolved. A goal of our work is, in fact, scientific biology and medicine, we have represented and continue to develop, space to create. [5] What is not yet the financial losses are compensated for. We ask you to help us by donating with balance. Also, the Writing and the production of a planned book on the measles Virus-a process that will require money that we don’t have at the Moment.

  • US woman dies of infection resistant to all 26 available antibiotics

    A US woman has died from an infection that was resistant to all 26 available antibiotics, health officials said this week, raising new concerns about the rise of dangerous superbugs.

    The woman, who was in her 70s, died in Nevada in September, and had recently been hospitalized in India with fractured leg bones, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

    The cause of death was sepsis, following infection from a rare bacteria known as carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), which is resistant to all antibiotics available in the United States.

    The specific strain of CRE, known as Klebsiella pneumoniae, was isolated from one of her wounds in August.

    Tests were negative for the mcr-1 gene — a great concern to health experts because it makes bacteria resistant to the antibiotic of last resort, colistin.

    It was unclear how the woman’s infection acquired resistance..

     

Titanic Exposure

  • U.S. Quietly Drops Bombshell: Wall Street Banks Have $2 Trillion European Exposure

    Just 17 days from today, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th President and deliver his inaugural address. Trump is expected to announce priorities in the areas of education, infrastructure, border security, the economy and curtailing the outsourcing of jobs. But Trump’s agenda will be derailed on all fronts if the big Wall Street banks blow up again as they did in 2008, dragging the U.S. economy into the ditch and requiring another massive taxpayer bailout from a nation already deeply in debt from the last banking crisis. According to a report quietly released by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Research less than two weeks before Christmas, another financial implosion on Wall Street can’t be ruled out.

    The Office of Financial Research (OFR), a unit of the U.S. Treasury, was created under the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation of 2010. It says its role is to: “shine a light in the dark corners of the financial system to see where risks are going, assess how much of a threat they might pose, and provide policymakers with financial analysis, information, and evaluation of policy tools to mitigate them.” Its 2016 Financial Stability Report, released on December 13, indicates that Wall Street banks have been allowed by their “regulators” to take on unfathomable risks and that dark corners remain in the U.S. financial system that are impenetrable to even this Federal agency that has been tasked with peering into them.

    At a time when international business headlines are filled with reports of a massive banking bailout in Italy and the potential for systemic risks from Germany’s struggling giant, Deutsche Bank, the OFR report delivers this chilling statement:

    “U.S. global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) have more than $2 trillion in total exposures to Europe. Roughly half of those exposures are off-balance-sheet…U.S. G-SIBs have sold more than $800 billion notional in credit derivatives referencing entities domiciled in the EU.”

    When a Wall Street bank buys a credit derivative, it is buying protection against a default on its debts by the referenced entity like a European bank or European corporation. But when a Wall Street bank sells credit derivative protection, it is on the hook for the losses if the referenced entity defaults. Regulators will not release to the public the specifics on which Wall Street banks are selling protection on which European banks but just the idea that regulators would allow this buildup of systemic risk in banks holding trillions of dollars in insured deposits after the cataclysmic results of similar hubris in 2008 shows just how little has been accomplished in terms of meaningful U.S. financial reform.

 

Missing The Boat

  • Democrats want 9/11-style special commission to probe Russia

    Democratic members of the U.S. Congress called on Monday for the creation of an independent commission to investigate Russia’s attempts to intervene in the 2016 election, similar to the Sept. 11 panel that probed the 2001 attacks on the United States.

    Their “Protecting our Democracy Act” would create a 12-member, bipartisan independent panel to interview witnesses, obtain documents, issue subpoenas and receive public testimony to examine attempts by Moscow and any other entities to influence the election.
