21st Century Wire says…
[Mar 18, 2015]
It’s official: The US federal government is addicted to spying on its own citizens – a tyrannical vice which is in direct contravention with the US Constution and Bill Of Rights.
Establishment think tank, the Pew Research Center, has found in its latest report the US public does cares about privacy – but has no idea how to protect their data, and which tools they can use.
“Large numbers of Americans say they are anxious about their privacy, and yet, there’s this fairly significant gap in knowledge.”
Some big tech firms appear to be working to change this trend by educating users and marketing new privacy tools. How well they work, and whether we can trust these firms not to collude illegally with US government agencies – is a another matter all together.
The bigger question however – and the one that 21WIRE is interested in – is whether or not those of us who opt for using encrypted products will be profiled by the US government snoops as ‘suspicious’ and will that choice be used against us to assign guilt before the fact? According to Pew’s findings on this, it seems like that is the case.
The second issue is a clandestine one. Are certain companies who are offering ‘encrypted email and communication’ products actually giving the other half of their encryption key over to the NSA – as was the case before? If so, is this level of cooperation illegal, or will it be “protected” as part of a “National Security” program, or even classified?
Welcome to the new digital Stasi…
Nearly two years after former government contractor Edward Snowden revealed details of extensive government surveillance programs, a Pew Research report suggests that the news has prompted some Americans to change their approach to online privacy.
The group surveyed about 500 adult Americans, finding that nearly 90 percent of them had heard about government surveillance programs and more than a third of those aware of the programs “have taken at least one step to hide or shield their information from the government,” the report said.
Though the report found that a majority of Americans are skeptical of government surveillance programs, it also found very few are taking the extra step of encrypting the content of their e-mails. In fact, half of those surveyed said using encryption software gives the government enough suspicion to monitor a U.S. citizen’s communications.
It turns out the ‘protesters’ we were seeing in Ferguson, and possibly those in New York and Baltimore, are not angry citizens as we were meant to believe, they are rent-a-mobs who expected to be paid while they cry “no justice, no peace.”
A group in Missouri has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to generate civil unrest in Ferguson, the troubled St. Louis suburb where black youth Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer last August.
Turns out some of the ‘protesters’ haven’t been paid and are demanding what they were promised. They held a sit-in at the offices of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) and posted a demand letter online.

In an alarming new update to its user agreement released this week, PayPal has announced that it will assert copyright ownership over all intellectual property of anyone who uses its payment services.
The update comes in the aftermath of the announcement that eBay and PayPal will split apart into two separate companies.
Under the heading “Intellectual Property,” PayPal announces that it is introducing a new paragraph to its agreement, effective July 1, 2015, that will allow the company to “use content that you post for publication using the Services”.
“When providing us with content or posting content (in each case for publication, whether on- or off-line) using the Services, you grant the PayPal Group a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your moral rights and promise not to assert such rights against the PayPal Group, its sublicensees or assignees. You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any intellectual property right: your provision of content to us, your posting of content using the Services, and the PayPal Group’s use of such content (including of works derived from it) in connection with the Services.”
PayPal users reacted to the terms of agreement update by expressing their shock and confusion.
“Wow! Does this mean that anything I might funnel through Paypal will belong to them, and that they can do what they like with it, without consultation, interference or redress?” asked one respondent. “So, for example, my business website: they could override my copyright if I channel it through them in any of their services?”

It’s hard to even guesstimate the number of people, not just in America but around the world, who feel they are being targeted by space age directed energy mind control weapons and gangstalked by minions of governments and shady groups for scientific experiments and other seedy ends.
The numbers are at least in the hundreds of thousands at this point.
Every once in a while, a little piece of this trend rises to the surface and makes its way into mainstream headlines, if even at a local level as is the case with the recent news that the Richmond, California City Council which just passed a resolution “in support of the Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty to permanently ban spaced-based weapons”.
Few societal threats escape the watchful eye of the Richmond City Council, so it was no surprise Tuesday night that it voted its opposition to airborne weapons systems that have allegedly targeted residents with mind-control technology. You read that correctly.
After a dozen professed victims told of pain suffered from chemtrails, particle beams and electromagnetic radiation, the council voted 5-2 in favor of Councilwoman Jovanka Beckles’ resolution “in support of the Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty to permanently ban spaced-based weapons,” with Mayor Tom Butt and Councilman Vinay Pimple dissenting. [What unfortunate names…]
“I’m just a dumb city council person,” Butt said, “and this is way, way over my head. I frankly think it’s way out of the purview of what this city council should be taking up.”
Colleague Nat Bates was more understanding: “I’m going to support the resolution for the simple reason that we have voted on a lot of dumb ideas.”
With a population of nearly 108,000 people in 2013, Richmond is no small town… and this is just one example of one town in one state in our country where at least a dozen people felt the need to speak out about what they believe is happening to them.
While these council members can poke fun and make light of this, guaranteed the people suffering what they believe is never ending electronic harassment by the government don’t think it’s very humorous at all.
And the numbers of those people who do believe that appear to be growing exponentially.
The purpose of the Space Preservation Act of 2001, introduced by former U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich, was to reaffirm it “is the policy of the United States that activities in space should be devoted to peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind.”
The bill would have permanently banned all space-based weapons and the termination of testing and developing them. It further specifically defined “weapon” in part as a device capable of “Inflicting death or injury on, or damaging or destroying, a person” via “the use of land-based, sea-based, or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations.”
It further noted that this would include “exotic weapons systems” such as electronic, psychotronic, or information weapons; chemtrails; high altitude ultra low frequency weapons systems; plasma, electromagnetic, sonic, or ultrasonic weapons; laser weapons systems; strategic, theater, tactical, or extraterrestrial weapons; and chemical, biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons.

Artists are also exploring how the experimental technology can provide new ways to track and verify ownership through tools like smart contracts – authenticated by cryptographic data.
Forgery is rife in the art world. While traditional forms of licensing would create a tradable commodity, he said, buyers could not be certain the license was authentic – nor would they be able to assert whether the author had created multiple copies of the piece.
“Bitcoin offers a solution to this problem. Just like bitcoin can replace banknotes, it can replace the piece of paper with the license text on it. I see great potential in bitcoin and its technology.”
He continued: “The blockchain is the first decentralised trustable database, which can track the ownership of virtual properties in a reliable way.”
By placing a hash value – a set of cryptographic functions that enable people to identify data – of his digital artwork on the bitcoin blockchain, the artist enables potential buyers to verify that the artwork has been licensed.

When Stephen Harper gave a prepared speech to the Israel parliament last year, he equated lack of support for Israel with anti-Semtism. He said: “[T]his is the face of the new anti-Semitism. It targets the Jewish people by targeting Israel and attempts to make the old bigotry acceptable for a new generation. Of course, criticism of Israeli government policy is not in and of itself necessarily anti-Semitic. But what else can we call criticism that selectively condemns only the Jewish state and effectively denies its right to defend itself, while systematically ignoring – or excusing – the violence and oppression all around it?”
