U.S. Using Sony Cyber Attack Scam to Erode Internet Freedoms, Free Speech, Attack N Korea

leave a comment »

But on the heels of similar breaches that brought significant harm and embarrassment to retail giant Target last year, and other companies in the interim, Obama said lawmakers should use the latest breach to go about getting a cybersecurity bill finally approved by Congress.

“In this interconnected digital world, there are going to be opportunities for hackers to engage in cyber-assaults both in the private sector and in the public sector,” Obama said.

“We’ve been coordinating with the private sector, but a lot more needs to done. We’re not even close to where we need to be,” the president said.

In the wake of the Sony hack, both Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Michigan), the outgoing chair of the House Intelligence Committee, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California), the chair of the Senate’s panel, said Congress must pass a bill that will more easily allow the private and public sectors to share threat information, the likes of which may prevent future attacks from ever unfolding.

“This is only the latest example of the need for serious legislation to improve the sharing of information between the private sector and the government to help companies strengthen cybersecurity,” Sen. Feinstein said in a statement. “We must pass an information sharing bill as quickly as possible next .”

North Korea has proposed a joint investigation with the United States into the hack attack against Sony Pictures, according to the state news agency, KCNA.

The offer comes as the FBI formally accused Pyongyang of the attack on Friday and US President Barack Obama promised to “respond proportionally” to the online breach.

North Korea says it can prove it has nothing to do with the cyberattack on Sony, the KCNA news release said.

The US is behind the current drop in oil prices as it is aiming to undermine the economies of large petroleum producers Russia and Venezuela, Bolivian President Evo Morales told RT.

In his interview with RT’s Spanish-language channel, Morales said that it’s was “a pity” that Washington remains on a “wrong course” by continuing to use sanctions against its political rivals.

“[The US thinks] we are living 200, 300 or 500 years ago, instead of today. But all the past should remain in the past. The US should realize this,” he told RT’s Spanish channel.

Ferguson, Cleveland, New York, Phoenix: The Silent But Deadly Horror of Race Problems 2015 America | American Slave and Racism Horrors: 1492 – 2000s

leave a comment »

When it comes to race in America, there is usually plenty of blame to go around from all sides: the racist, the person who is the target of the racism, and the occasional middle man who stirs up trouble between races for darker, more sinister purposes. Regardless, it has become much easier for white Americans to say there is no racism in this country when:

1. The majority of police officers, district attorneys and judges are white like them

2. Over 90% of prime time television actors are white like them

3. Over 95% of billboards and other public advertisement contain images of white faces like them

4. The vast majority of travel industry pros who take them to their business and leisure destinations are white like them

5. Nearly 100% of top offices in federal government, including Congress, is white like them

6. American history, in publicly funded and private schools favor the white view of history

7. The color black is associated with evil and white is associated with good, and so on.

Alert: Internet Freedom Under Assault, More Internet Users Arrested Worldwide

leave a comment »

Internet freedom around the world has tumbled for the fourth consecutive year, with 36 out of 65 assessed countries showing negative trends as more governments resort to repressive measures that stifle online use.

A multiple of factors, including repressive laws, government surveillance and regulatory controls over online discussion are just some of the ways that Internet freedoms are slowly being chipped away, according to a survey by Freedom House, a US-based non-governmental organization.

Of the 65 countries analyzed in the study, entitled ‘Freedom on the Net 2014,’ 19 adopted new legislation that “increased surveillance or restricted user anonymity.”

This Orwellian atmosphere of ubiquitous over-the-shoulder surveillance has had a chilling effect on internet freedoms, not to mention personal liberty, since more people are now facing prison sentences for not conforming to the new wave of laws governing internet use.

Unlike the U.S., ​Russian Gov’t Eases Gun Control Laws for Citizen Self Defense — RT News

leave a comment »

In an amendment to its tough gun control laws, the Russian government eases restrictions, allowing citizens to carry licensed weapons for the purposes of ‘self-defense.’

Until now Russian gun enthusiasts were only permitted to carry firearms for hunting or target shooting after obtaining a license through the Interior Ministry. Russian gun licenses are to be renewed every five years, and applicants face strict background checks and are required to take gun safety courses.

​Bloomberg gun-control group seeks victory in more than 12 states — RT USA

leave a comment »

Plans for the gun-control group founded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg are becoming increasingly ambitious, as it looks to target up to 20 states for gun reform over the next two years.

The measures backed by Everytown for Gun Safety range from ballot initiatives like the one it helped pass in Washington State this year – which required background checks for those purchasing firearms from private dealers and gun shows – to legislative proposals that would allow for the removal of guns from those convicted of domestic abuse.
