In his latest interview with John Pilger Julian Assange makes the claim that Saudi Arabia , a contributer to the Clinton foundation, is a major funder of ISIL. This means that Clinton and Obama had their hands tied when dealing with Saudi Arabia over ISIL, which could have potentially received unlimited funds. It is not a big surprise that this might be the case, why would Saudi Arabia, a fundamentalist Islamic state hesitate to fund “Islamice State” (ISIL) ?
The war against Libya, largely championed by Clinton, led to destabilization in the middle East, with Jihadi groups and Isil killing up to 40 000 people, this in turn led to the refugee crisis which is now flooding Europe. According to Assange, Libya and Gaddafi were previously policing the Mediterranean, thereby preventing rogue Islamic groups getting control. It appears that in the Middle East you have a choice between brutal dictators and fundamentalist Islam, as the case of Saddam Hussein has previously shown. Ultimately brutal dictators are more preferable to Islam , which in it’s most fundamentalist version is a most destructive force.
According to Assange ,Hillary Clinton is the centralizing cog in the wheel of Large Banks, Wall Street and Middle Eastern Islamic oil states. It’s about the money. Apparently half of Obama’s first cabinet was chosen by Wall Street.
Assange provides his analysis after reading many of the leaked Clinton and Podesta emails.
If Assange is correct and Donald Trump is”not permitted to win by the establishment”, what will Hillary Clinton do next ? Fight Putin and Russia? You can bet on that.
Assange finishes the interview by stating that he is a political prisoner who has been unlawfully confined to the Ecuadorian embassy in London for four years under false pretenses.
Stone age, Bronze age, Iron age, Steam age, Nuclear age, Space age, Internet age.
These ages should be familiar to us, they represent changes in society and civilization due to changes in technology. A new age has begun, the Troll age. The internet gave the average person a voice that could be heard (or rather read) all over the world. The playing field was never level and due to the nature of the technology, the control of the internet centralized.
Government censorship, major corporations, and media companies, shills all should sought to stifle and derail debate. This control was all centralized and relied on hubs in a network to control thought itself.
Then it all changed.
Trolls; be they pranksters, devils advocates, malicious individuals, or just individuals having a different opinion and just as insistent as you, well they have always existed. Now trolls may have one of the most powerful destabilizing tools conceived of; DDosCoin
Ever hear of Bitcoin? Dogecoin? Bitcoin was conceived of after a technical paper published in 2008. Three months later a working wallet was created and then 7 years later every one new about Bitcoin. Bitcoin has become a significant and somewhat irksome for centralized banking.
DDoSCoin operates in a similar way to Bitcoin but rather than solving a innocuous mathematical puzzle to award Bitcoin to miners, DDosCoin rewards proof of DOS (Denial of service, a malicious attack against an internet server). It was claimed Australia’s 2016 census was subject to s DDOS attack but it was most likely the result of shoddy planning and too few census severs.
The Hashrate (measure of computational power) of Bitcoin the Bitcoin is impressive. Imagine a hashrate of Bitcoin directed against the hubs of internet control. This is the threat of DDosCoin. Why stand outside Monsanto with a cardboard sign in the rain waiting for OC spray, when you could just click a few buttons at home and join a DDOS attack against Monsanto and have a picnic at the beach (or what ever else you were planning). Best of all rather than expending your precious time to protest you would be fianacially rewarded for your participation. It goes without saying one would need to have good OPSEC (aka being clever and covering your tracks). DDosCoin does not exist yet as a publicly available application yet, but it will, whether the inventors want it to or not. Its possible other people may have something in the works now or be inspired by the technical paper. One thing is certain DDosCoin will exist, and the future will not be the same again. The mighty may fall and be replaced by the troll, someone with the audacity to say, no I disagree and you can’t shut me up.
Be alert not alarmed.
Artists impression of what a DDosCoin could look like in the real world.
So for the third time Telstra mobile network has failed. Many tesltra customers rely on Telstra’s wide coverage and feel cheated that the premium they pay for this seems to be as the expense of reliability.
So why is this occurring, despite the cooperate hype Telstra systems are poorly maintained and often antiquated. This is due to managements obsession with cost cutting staff salaries and importing inexperienced young immigrant labor. As a result a strong disincentive among staff to document systems and procedures resulted. The conclusion was many systems became ‘black boxes’ of unknown function and contents. Of course eventually something will break down and when they do the technician who could maintain them has long since retired (or grudging took a pay out 20 years ago) and had no one to pass the torch to. Worse still many technicians were sacked in the prime of their careers and won’t help Telstra for love or money. As a result we are beginning to see the symptoms of this disease, unreliable infrastructure one might be more familiar with in third world countries, no surprise it is being run by third world people with absolutely no vision past their own KPI’s.
Of course legions of middle managers are happily finding someone to blame, and this is where their love of immigrant labor come in, immigrant are scared to lose their jobs and residency applications so they will take unfair blame along with poor pay and conditions. there’s no real competitor to Telstra for Mobile coverage, so nothing will stop the rot of network stability.
Welcome to the new normal. (You might want to print this out and pass it on, you can’t guarantee internet stability anymore.)
Imagine if bit-coin was invented the same time the internet was. Stop imagining. It’s about to happen in the next few months.

no gate keepers
It’s this cloud thing that tech companies have been banging on about for years except you are truly part of it rather than just a customer. A giant shared network storage with encryption.
Another nice find from the Mikiverse
Hard to be sure what has caused it, sabotage, or FSA rebels/ government trying to create communications black spots.
Some more fog of war for Syria
