Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.
While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.
John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.
Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.
So a few days ago ‘The Age’ (our local rag) ran a story about High school student abandoning IT as a field of study.
The article was good enough, but the comments were an absolute goldmine of insight into the problems in IT in Australia
The more disturbing elements to this case are the following:
Authorities refused to act due to fears of being branded a racist, because perpetrators were Pakistani in origin.
Pedophiles were transporting children to be abused in a network style operation.
Fathers attempting to rescue their children were arrested by police.
Over six months ago this story emerged but despite the whole’ hands up don’t shot’ theme clearly displays here very little in the media frenzy. Police caught out by their own cameras. Its either the police are too stupid to remember this or the footage get ‘lost’ or redacted when its looking too bad for the cops.
Well this footage didn’t get’ lost’, and ultimately exonerated the citizen, police clearly are in deep trouble now. Occasionally in the internal squabbles behind the scenes in the police/courts/lawyer matrix, someone has an axe to grind and they throw one of their own to the dogs.
Special reminder to police: video cameras are commonplace now days (built into most mobile phones) and people have a habit of filming controversial events and then uploading them for all to see. You can’t win the court case if you lost the media war.
Video evidence is almost undeniable in court.
I wonder how long it will be before our local Victoria police are again caught on camera assaulting the public for no good reason.
Great work from Stefan Molyneux, cutting through the bullshit once again.
Pants up, don’t loot.
Just because the police are assholes, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t.
Ballistics seem to indicate that Michael Brown (a Football player) was charging at the the officer who shot him.
Analysis of the pattern of hand gun shots seems to indicate a shooter who shot in a hurry in a tense situation, starting by jerking the trigger then tightening his grip, then too little trigger pressure. The last shot seem to be pushing anticipation recoil or perhaps even impact of the charging assailant.
Finding it hard to get a job lately? Salary and wages seeming quite flat? Wonder why?
It’s because your job is being ‘in-sourced’.
In-sourcing is the disturbing new trend where by desperate economic migrants are taking any job they can at a vastly lower rate whether they have the skills or not.
Of course this leaves your career static or at worst sunk. Corporations love it as they get a whole lot of cheap labor, and if anything goes wrong the tax payer is left to pick up the bill.
Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.
In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.
What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.
From wikileaks.org press release:
Ok now, memes and MSM bullshit aside, did Jonathon Moylan do all that much damage to (ASX WHC) Whitehaven coal ?
Not as much as you might think, WHC had been on the slide for 3 quarters before the ANZ corporate hoax. Investors dumping WHC in the previous 3 quarters had done more damage to WHC than Moylan. So effectively what Jono had done was arrive in time to see the rich obnoxious WHC house being burnt down by an angry mob and kicking in the letterbox while being cheered on the crowd of disenchanted. Of course a serious analysis might show this up but when you are underscoring the dangers of fracking (AKA CSG AKA coal seam gas), But why let to many facts get in the way of good publicity. WHC had been under preforming the ASX 200 for several years, the business cycle, carbon tax, but even this being said its really hard to know how much damage a single well crafted rumor can do.
We are after all talking about Keynesian economics, with adherents who believe you can print fake money to appease animal spirits, which then magically repair an economy.
I couldn’t resist and it’s friday, for the tinfoilers out there, this video is from 1984, spooky.
For the OM hard core: which eviction was this song played at?
Jonathan Moylan had his own Mega Mosque moment when he created a parody email system called ANZcorporate and sent out fake press releases claiming a col mining project had lost it line of credit from ANZ, of course the share price when tumbling because all this is fake money and can disappear in an instant. Then the banksters got angry that people were figuring out their dirty tricks, his ‘roumortrage’ (rumor and arbitrage) had done real damage, but he unlike banksters had refused to take monetary advantage from it all.
Court case ensues, found guilty but unlikely to face jail because these kinds of finance crimes always have precedent and are usually accompanied by light sentences.
Amazing the kind of damage you can do with a few dollars, a clever idea and stone cold bluff.
Because absolutely nothing can be a real cool hand.
