Finally my electronic voting form for the Labour Leadership election arrives – how to complete it to vote for Jeremy Corbyn



Finally my electronic voting form for the Labour Leadership election arrives – how to complete it to vote for Jeremy Corbyn

By Dark Politricks

Just like magic, just after I complained to Labour HQ about the lack of a voting form for the Labour leadership despite their taking of my money, the email popped into my inbox. They cannot be so thick to not recognise that it’s theft if they have taken your money from you but don’t give you the chance to vote.

People have been complaining about being purged from being able to vote all week now with the hashtag #LabourPurge, and even Andy Burnham was on TV earlier saying: “We know Tories have signed up so we must stop them being able to vote”.

I have trouble believing any true Tory would spend even £3 when they know it might go to some horrible poor useless eater down the line.

If you have paid £3 to become a registered member to vote in the Labour leader and deputy leader election you will get an email message like the one I did below.

If you haven’t got one yet ensure you confirmed your email when you registered by checking your junk/trash email boxes for the date you registered and confirm it otherwise no emails will be coming your way.

If you did confirm it then contact Labour HQ and complain. A quick search online for #LabourPurge or “How to vote in the Labour leadership contest” will show you who to contact.

Jeremy Corbyn’s website also has details on who to ring and dates you should vote before etc.

Here is the email you SHOULD get if you paid £3 just to vote.

Dear [YOUR NAME],

You can now vote for the next Leader and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.

You can vote online and your vote must be received by 12 noon on Thursday 10 September to count.

Once you have entered your security code, the website will give clear instructions on how to cast your vote. It takes just a few moments to cast your vote online, and you can do so at any time until the ballot closes at 12 noon on Thursday 10 September.

Vote Online Now

These elections are being run by Electoral Reform Services, who have been appointed by the Labour Party as the independent scrutineer for this ballot.

If you live in London, as well as voting for Labour’s Leader and Deputy Leader, you can also vote to select Labour’s candidate for London Mayor for the elections being held in May 2016.

On the online voting site, please rank the candidates in your order of preference. You do not need to use all of your preferences, but doing so cannot harm your first-preference candidate. Click here if you want to understand more about the voting system.

Thank you for taking part in these important elections,

The Labour Party
Sent by Electoral Reform Services

Please remember to ensure Labour don’t “FIX THE ELECTION” by shuffling around your 2nd and 3rd preferences to ensure Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t get elected.

To do this you should ONLY vote for Jeremy Corbyn and do NOT give 2nd, 3rd or 4th preferences to the other candidates as it is quite logical that Labour will use this to say the alternative voting system gave more 2nd and 3rd votes to some Tory Lite candidate rather than Jeremy.

Therefore just select his name next to the box marked “1″ under the column “Voting Preference” and leave the others blank.

Remember this is to prevent a Tory Lite Labour MPs getting voted in due to a 2nd / 3rd preference votes scam

Your page should look like this.

How to vote for Jeremy Corbyn
How your web page should look after voting for Jeremy Corbyn

Remember for £3 voters you ONLY vote electronically and online. This is all done on the website > https://secure2.votebyinternet.com

Remember if the website doesn’t have “https” (SSL / Secure HTTP) in front of the domain name OR it’s not even that domain name e.g a spoofed website such as https://votinglabour.electionX2.com or something similar.

Also if the email doesn’t come from the address [email protected] then it could be a fake phising like email to make you think you have voted when you haven’t.

Remember it really is not hard at all to run freely available code to copy a websites HTML – therefore creating a fake website that looks the same as another but does nothing OR something else.

Also it is not hard at all to send emails to people with a fake “From” email address.

Therefore just be sure you are going to the right page / website and not being tricked into wasting your vote etc.

Are you a “Bunny Rabbit”? – “Yes”



Are you a “Bunny Rabbit”? – “Yes”

By Dark Politricks

The other night I watched Panorama on BBC1.

It was about the various torture techniques used by the Americans  during the early years of the “war on terror” on certain “high level detainees” they were holding in places such as Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib.

This of course included water boarding, as well as playing the same loud song over and over again, so that the prisoner could not concentrate on top of stress positions and basic humiliation.

1st Torture Test – Locked In Box in a stress position as loud music is played inwards at you constantly

One of the first “enhanced interrogation techniques” that was used on the BBC presenter was for her to be locked in an uncomfortable position into a small cramped black box for a number of minutes as loud music was pumped in to make the experience even more unconformable. It was a bit like being a magicians assistant without the benefits of being able to rest your feet or hands properly.

Within 10 minutes the BBC presenter couldn’t handle it and had the luxury of being able to “knock out” to get herself removed from the box.

As she clambered out of the box she told the camera that after that she would have told the people carrying out the torture anything to get herself out of that box.

The next integration was the infamous “water boarding” along with many other torture techniques it was designated by the George W Bush White House as NOT being torture.

This was the legal team that came up with the infamous “torture memos” created by such brilliant legal minds as John Woo, Alberto Gonzales, General Ashcroft and General Jay S. Bybee. They all told the CIA that techniques widely regarded as torture e.g mental and physical torment and coercion such as prolonged sleep deprivation, binding in stress positions and waterboarding were all legally permissible during the “War on Terror”.

I suppose when you are the most powerful country in the world and will in fact use military force to free anyone sent to the ICC the International Criminal Court (ICC) you can basically do what you like. This court was designed to “bring to justice the perpetrators of the worst crimes known to humankind – war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide”, especially when national courts are unable or unwilling to do so!

This would have been a great case for Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and co to be arrested, taken to the Hague and tried under the same international laws that he USA helped create after World War II at Nuremberg. 

Also seeing that President Obama did nothing but “pardon” all previous members of the Bush administration for any past crimes they may have committed it would have been a perfect example of the ICC stepping in due to the countries own failure to act when it came to punishing war criminals.

It seems all Obama’s claims on that first famous campaign trail were not “Yes We Can” but “No I Won’t Even Bother Trying”.

Waterboarding can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against the restraints, lasting psychological damage, and even death!

If this wasn’t classed by the Bush legal team as torture I don’t know what would be.

The only thing they could do worse would be to stoop even lower to the types of inhumane degradation that Islamic State carry out when they dress their victims up in the same orange jump suits that the prisoners at GITMO wear before burning their prisoners alive or chopping off limbs.

I wonder why ISIS would do that?

Well it’s perfectly clear actually, as a commentator stated on the programme. ISIS are copying the degrading treatment that their own prisoners get at the hands of the Americans in GITMO. Locked in cages as the inmates just as the prisoners at GITMO are, dressed in orange jumpsuits and blindfolded.

The only difference is that we know they are going to their death and ISIS ensure their prisoners are dead whilst the CIA cover up all the deaths they commit.

Islamic State are making a statement when they do this – you treat our Muslim brothers (most who were at Gitmo turned out to be innocent) like caged animals and we will do the same to our prisoners.

ISIS Prisoners dressed and caged as GITMO prisoners are

2nd Torture Test – Water Boarding

Anyway after the first torture test – the stress test with loud music locked in an uncomfortable box – the main presenter didn’t want to get involved in the 2nd test and another one of the Panorama team stepped up instead. The Torture must have been too much for her to bear.

The 2nd test was to be water boarded. This is where water is poured over a cloth which covers your face and the breathing passages of the detainee. This causes the person to experience the sensation of drowning even though they aren’t.

The Panorama team member was tied to a board and had a cloth put over his face as water was passed over his face constantly. He was coughing and spluttering and was in obvious discomfort.

Whilst he was being water boarded he was constantly being shouted at about whether or not he was in fact a “Bunny Rabbit”.

Obviously he wasn’t and the idea was for the reporter to hold on as long as possible and say “No of course not”.

However within a minute the reporter was shouting back “Yes”, “Yes I am a Bunny Rabbit” until the torture stopped.

After a few minutes at the most he begged to get off and they let him spend some time hurling up water and from his mouth and nose as he explained to the main presenter how he would have said anything to get them to stop the torture on him.

Does Torture Work

Of course there are those people who think “enhanced interrogation techniques” were perfectly within the law (only because they wrote it!), and that because of them they saved hundreds of American and other lives through their use by gathering important intelligence from detainees who were tortured.

Of course 99.99% of these people have not experienced the water boarding technique themselves so they cannot claim to know whether they themselves would blab about any terrorist plot they didn’t know anything about or just hold on due to some sado-masochist reasons as alleged 9.11 plotter KSM allegedly did.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the alleged ringleader and alleged plotter of the 9.11 attacks that have caused World War III

Apparently KSM was water boarded 183 times during March 2003,

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed did not divulge actionable intelligence until at least 2006 and withheld any actionable intelligence for 3 years.

In fact he got so used to the torture that he used to use his hand to show to the CIA Torturers the time left he had, counting down until they had to stop as they didn’t want to kill him. It seemed he got used to the pain and once he realised they would not go as far as kill him took the piss out of his torturers.

In fact many of the people who ended up being tortured gave up real actionable intelligence before being locked in boxes, tied in gurney and half drowned through normal professional interrogation techniques.

KSM also apparently admitted that he was:

Responsible for the 9/11 operation, from A to Z, as well as to decapitating Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, taking responsibility for the shoe bombing attempt by Richard Reid, the Bali nightclub bombing, the 1993 World Trade Center attack and a number of other attacks and attempted attacks that did not play out,

With this false intelligence the CIA was gathering from the “Bunny Rabbit”, their close partner the UK, who denied knowledge that they knew the Americans were using Torture, were busy helping their CIA counterparts. Multiple ex Gitmo detainees claimi to have seen MI6 agents hand the interrogators questions to be asked to them.

We also have at least two people trying to sue the UK government for their rendition and torture including Binyam Mohamed, a UK citizen tortured and secretly flown to Guantánamo Bay, and the abduction of Abdel Hakim Belhaj and Sami-al-Saadi, two prominent Libyan dissidents, and their families, who were flown to Tripoli in 2004 where they were tortured by Muammar Gaddafi’s secret police.

It didn’t help that after the British Embassy in Tripoli was bombed during war that hundreds of pieces of paper were found all over the floor including secret memos including our involvement in Belhaj’s torture.

The documents, marked ‘UK Secret’, were found in the abandoned British Embassy in Tripoli after the revolt and consisted of long lists of questions and background intelligence that MI5 and MI6 asked Libyan interrogators to put to Mr Belhadj during sessions where he claims he was being tortured.

A letter from an MI6 officer refers to Abdel Hakim Belhaj’s rendition to Libya. It congratulates the Libyans on the “safe arrival” of the “air cargo”.

Jack Straw who was Home Secretary at the time denies that the UK had any involvement in US rendition or torture. However Mr Belhaj says he was tortured in jail and a BBC correspondent, Peter Taylor, says he understands Mr Belhaj’s rendition was given ministerial approval.

However references to Britain’s intelligence agencies and links to torture were deleted at our request from the damning US Senate report on the CIA’s use of torture after 9/11 on our request under grounds of “National Security”.

Now that we have destroyed Africa’s wealthiest nation, the country with the highest life expectancy and GDP per capita on the continent, a once prosperous country with a free health service, where you were given a free house when you got married, oil being shared amongst the people and fewer people living below the poverty line than in the Netherlands – we are turning our hand up and saying “sort yourself out”.

This is a country where the government only commands a section of the country, where it has to meet on boats to prevent terrorist attacks and where tribal feuds that simmered for centuries under the pot but never boiled over under Gaddafi’s rule are now ruining the country. Even ISIS controls a portion of it on the coastline.

This is where thousands upon thousands of poor people from Libya, Somalia, Yemen and the rest of the world we have helped destroy try to get to the “continent paved with worthless €’s”. Little do they realise we are all skint, indebted to the moon and back and have racist gangs in every country waiting to greet these people with a lot more physical greeting than a handshake.

Risking death in the Mediterranean

Libyan refugees risk death to flee their war-torn country
Libya's people smugglers

People smugglers take advantage of desperate people in the Mediterranean

Criminal gangs send thousands of people over the Mediterranean in dangerous boats in the hope of reaching the EU, usually stuffing them into weak boats that are then set adrift in the hope that EU Navy boats will rescue them. Then if any of these refugees are lucky enough to get to Calais or the UK we them away despite the fact we turned their once prosperous country into a hell hole.

Calais Police Fight Immigrants desperate to get to the UK
French police fight migrants desperate to get to the UK at the Eurotunnel site at Calais

However we all know the axis of war is about destroying countries not rebuilding them. That takes time and effort. It’s much easier to just bomb from the air and torture captured combatants (whether real or not), to see what useful information they may have.

Blair sends tanks into HeathrowThe CIA extracted false information about a terrorist plot against the UK from their new al-Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammedwho was spilling the beans on every kind of attack imaginable to man. 99% of these claims turned out to be false such as the UK plot on Heathrow airport and London’s Canary Wharf.

They passed the information onto the UK and Tony Blair sent in the tanks to “protect” the airport. It was more hilarious than scary.

However they then used this to justify more use of waterboarding, the US Senate intelligence committee report on the CIA’s use of torture concluded.

So why did KSM admit to so many crimes that he obviously did not commit? Was he in fact a “Bunny Rabbit?”

If so why are we believing the ones that may have some speck of partial truth in them whilst ignoring the blatant lies which anyone who knows about torture will tell you that you will come up with to stop it. Lies such as the 1993 bombing of the WTC or the Shoe Bombing by Richard Reid?

As KSM continues to rot away at Gitmo after giving real actionable intelligence ONLY under sophisticated non-coercive persuasion favored by professional interrogators. The US is determined to try him for “conspiracy, murder in violation of the law of war, attacking civilians, attacking civilian objects, intentionally causing serious bodily injury, destruction of property in violation of the law of war, hijacking aircraft and terrorism” – they also seeking the death penalty for the near 3,000 people killed in the Sept. 11 attacks.

If you didn’t watch the episode details are below but I just wanted to remind you of an old English Legal Rule that determined commoners could not be believed to tell the truth unless torture had been carried out on them.

Another term would be “trial by ordeal” you can read about the three ordeals here.

Ordeal by fire. An accused person held a red-hot iron bar and walked three paces. His hand was then bandaged and left for three days. If the wound was getting better after three days, you were innocent. If the wound had clearly not got any better, you were guilty.

Ordeal by water. An accused person was tied up and thrown into water. If you floated you were guilty of the crime you were accused of.

Ordeal by combat. This was used by noblemen who had been accused of something. They would fight in combat with their accuser. Whoever won was right. Whoever lost was usually dead at the end of the fight.

It seems little has changed in this day and age of black site prisons, offshore sites like Gitmo and Israel/Gaza where international law doesn’t apply for some reason and of course all the people coming forward with their complaints of torture by the CIA and MI5/MI6.

Why I want Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Leader



Why I want Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Leader

By Dark Politricks

I watched the BBC debate on the Politics Show between the 4 Labour Leader hopefuls the other week (catch up on BBC iPlayerThis “How To” article might help overseas viewers watch it) – and I seriously hope Jeremy Corbyn wins the election for Labours new leader.

The other 3 are just Blairite bland stand for nothing politicians for life. They think the Tories are on the right track, they just won’t cut as fast. They are basically “Tory Lite” – there would be no real difference between the Blairites and the Tories apart from “some” of their schooling, and the fact they wouldn’t cut the poorest people’s income as fast as the Tories are now doing.

The people standing for leader are below. Click on the links to view what they would offer you as leader on the official Labour website:

  • Liz Kendall a proper Tory Lite candidate. She would be indistinguishable from the Tories apart from her sex.
  • Yvette Cooper married to Ed Balls who helped oversee our economic demise with Gordon Brown.
  • Andy Burnham who oversaw multiple NHS abuse scandals including the Stafford hospital scandal between 2005 and 2009 where hundreds of patients died needlessly due to appalling standards of care.
  • Jeremy Corbyn who actually speaks his own mind, has gone against the Blair/Brown whip on votes and stands up for the poor and disadvantaged in society. He would choose jobs for all over wars for the USA and the USA would hate him to be leader. I wouldn’t be surprised if a CIA/MI5 joint hit squad took him out in the first week (for national security reasons obviously).

To be honest like a lot of people I don’t want another Blairite, war mongering, bankster loving, austerity lite leader as the opposition leader to the Tories who are going full blast at destroying the country. Did you know that the Tories have increased the national debt more in 4 years than Labour did in 13?

That’s crazy and says a lot for George Osborne’s failed policy of austerity to reduce our debt by cutting social security, cutting jobs, cutting wages, increasing pension ages and other acts that are all targeted at the poorest in society

The national debt is at £1.2 trillion and rising. Amazing isn’t it when all we hear from the Tories is that the deficit is dropping and we are doing well as an economy, maybe we need a bailout next. I can’t see Germany granting us a penny let alone £500 bn.

What does this tell me.

That austerity has not worked.

Removing Tax Credits, keeping people in low paid jobs or unemployed means they are not paying tax, and the Government is paying out in social security.

The attacks on “scroungers” and welfare dodgers are just plain right wing BS. The biggest proportion of our social security bill goes on Pensions and the Tories are not going to do anything to annoy their major constituency are they?

Not that they could do much. The pension we get isn’t exactly a king’s ransom for a life time working your ass off and free bus passes and other little trinkets don’t do much to reward the workers who saw us through the post war years.

If it was up to me, all bus travel would be free (or much cheaper than it is), it would take cars off the road, and reduce pollution. If the government were serious about things like the environment and reducing car use then they would be seriously considering measures like this, Call it socialism if you want but then ask an American if they want to remove Medicare, Food Stamps, Schools and other “socialist” measures and they will shoot the roof down.

Here in the UK we don’t need our two main parties, now that the Lib Dems are an irrelevancy, being pro-austerity, pro-bankster, pro-US foreign policy, pro-EU, pro-Troika attacks on Greece and other neo-con, neo-liberal, failed policies. We are kidding ourselves if we think people don’t want a real choice when it comes to elections.

I want a PROPER left-wing party to oppose the RIGHT wing party in power right now so that people have a REAL choice when they go and vote and it’s not just over the speed of cuts to our schools and libraries but a real ideological divide that makes you think where your head and heart lies.

As one form of the famous quote goes “A man who is not a Liberal at sixteen has no heart; a man who is not a Conservative at sixty has no head.”

I’d say it’s natural to become more conservative as you get older. My Dad certainly has, he’s turned into a bloody Daily Mail reader!

Technology changes, immigration, language, talk of the “good old days”. It is normal for you want to return to the years where you had no cares and the world seemed an open challenge.

However that does not mean that Conservative policies which in this country means tax cuts for the rich, attacks on the poor and a front bench full of posh Etonians who probably have no idea what it is like to live on £140 a fortnight in Jobseeker’s allowance – these are the “generous benefits that attract immigrants from all around the world to our shores”.

£140 may seem like a lot to someone in Africa who earns a few quid a week but when you have to pay half of your benefits to ear and the rest on fuel, electricity and other necessities it quickly becomes clear that our generous benefit system is not generous at all,

We need a party that only borrows to invest in infrastructure, which then means jobs and tax receipts.

We need inducements to get companies to move to low employment areas and make jobs for the unemployed people in those areas ruined by the Tories in earlier years.

Don’t just cut corporation tax and other taxes for the corporations that seem to run our country. Make it dependant on an assurance that wages between females and males for the same job will be equal, that they will hire people who are long-term unemployed and that they will pay proper living wages and not let the state pick up the difference.

We don’t need another party in Government who sucks up to US Foreign Policy, we need cuts in defence e.g our “non independent nuclear deterrent that relies on US GPS guidance systems” and the retraction of “Get out of jail free cards” for companies like BAE just because we are threatened by Saudi terrorist Funders like Prince Bandar. They are supposed to be our allies but who want allies who threaten them and live in the 7th century. To me there is little difference between ISIS and Saudi Arabia and even the European Parliament thinks so declaring in 2013 that Saudi Arabia was the main exporter of terrorism around the world.

We need a proper tax code that stops companies using tax havens and the massive tax code that runs into tens of thousands of pages compared to Hong Kong’s 25 to stop companies finding ways to avoid paying tax.

A company who can move their HQ to Switzerland just so that they can get out of paying tax here is one we should inform, “either you pay your tax here or you lose access to one of the biggest markets in the world”. Any company who sells goods in this country whether based here or not should have a “shell” company created that is based here so that all tax from sales can be collected correctly.

We should also be cracking down on the super rich who buy whole swathes of the countryside and London’s rich areas only to not live there and destroy the small businesses, pubs and corner shops that rely on that area for trade.

We should be building huge amounts of houses and cracking down on people who buy second homes purely to rent at stupidly high prices. Anyone who wishes to do so in a time of high private rental prices should have to pay for it. We should also make laws that punish people either through tax or allowing their homes to be used by the homeless when they don’t live in them for over 70% of the time. That will make them re-consider whether to take housing stock out of our control or not.

Or what about people who buy second homes as investments but don’t rent or sell them within 4 months. We should force them to accept social tenants, the poor people on housing benefit, that our Government seems to be increasing in number but hate at the same time.

Having massive million pound homes in London that are empty is no good for no-one. We need rules to stop building companies and developers buying land and then just holding onto it, waiting to see if the value of the land will rise.

We need rules to speed up the building of homes on brown field sites. “Use it or lose it” should be a Labour policy that is kept and enforced. If building companies just stop building then they should lose tax incentives that should be given to make them build the houses that are desperately needed in the first place.

The private rental system is not working and we need to lower the cost of housing for everyone so that a 4 bedroom house in the South East doesn’t cost over a million quid but in Hartlepool under £100,000. The private rent in this country is far too high and with George Osborne selling off council homes and making people who might not be able to afford it for very good reasons to pay “market rates” (read over-inflated), if they earn over a certain amount is plain wrong.

Plus Jeremy has the balls to talk to people we say are terrorists (IRA, Hamas, Hezbollah etc) realising that the only way to end the multi billion pound wars we are constantly engaged in are to talk to the same people – many of whom we have ended up doing so e.g the IRA.

He also doesn’t want to start more wars such as following the Tories into Syria and is prepared to allow the Iranians after their historic deal (a fuss over nothing) to engage in the peace process, cut off arms and money to the ISIS regime and not send more UK troops to die for a UK/US policy that created ISIS in the first place. Let Israel, Iran, The Kurds and Syria do the fighting.

Do we really think President Assad is worse than ISIS? I don’t and I think anyone who does is living in a fantasy land.

We have turned peaceful countries into war zones and it is only by talking to our “enemies” that we finally reach a peaceful end to conflict if we cannot beat them militarily. Just look at the Taliban, a fundamentalist Islamic group with archaic beliefs but one who we thought we had beaten whim a few months in 2001 only to find ourselves leaving tails between legs 15 years later and with our puppet leaders successor, Ashraf Ghani, talking to the Taliban “terrorists” to try to resolve the countries problems.

Talking works – Bombing Doesn’t.

Just look at Gaza, probably the most bombed placed in the world but still the people are defiant. Only talking will solve the Israeli Peace Crisis.

So I am all for Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader and I wish he would be Prime Minister.

For far too long we have had neo-con leaders whether dressed in red or blue running our country and it’s time for a change.

Our current policies aren’t working so why not try something else?

I will be paying my £3 to join the Labour party so that I can vote in the election – will you?

Putin’s aim to wipe out Europe as it learns of UK first strike policy



Putin’s aim to wipe out Europe as it learns of UK first strike policy

By Dark Politricks

This is based on an old article but it’s still very relevant. The reason I am posting is that we used to used Kaspersky Anti Virus Tools at our work, Our old CTO didn’t agree with that decision and called it a big back door for Russian Intelligence – he may have been right all along.

Anyway I installed it on one of my laptops and then the tool Wireshark which lets you sniff certain data packets e.g TCP/IP and web traffic etc. I even used this tool to catch my old man out having a dalliance  with a certain woman behind my Mums back.

I installed it on their router then watched all the old Microsoft Messenger messages that used to be sent in plain text go out and back into their computer. A very good reason to encrypt your messaging service if not built-in already I’d say. If not install Wireshark and see how much of your traffic is going out in plain text, it’s pretty easy to setup and you will see if the data is readable or not!

Just being able to see the amount of plain text traffic going in and out was amazing in itself but what astonished me was the number of requests to IP addresses in Sweden and other countries that didn’t seem to be necessary. Almost every few seconds an HTTPS request to a location near Russia was bein sent out, what it was sending I have no idea, but I thought it was strange as I know instant virus analysis is done by local databases of definitions so that it’s quick and each file that is accessed can be analysed quickly.

The sender was Kapsersky itself. Why they were sending out so much traffic to other servers located elsewhere when anti-virus tools download new virus definitions before scans. These definitions hold all the “virus patterns” of what to look for.

From this article on how anti-virus tools work.

Your antivirus software relies on virus definitions to detect malware. That’s why it automatically downloads new, updated definition files – once a day or even more often. The definition files contain signatures for viruses and other malware that have been encountered in the wild. When an antivirus program scans a file and notices that the file matches a known piece of malware, the antivirus program stops the file from running, putting it into “quarantine.” 

Therefore when reverse DNS checks and lookups on the IPs that the traffic was going to gave me nothing interesting but the location – countries near Sweden I had to think twice about what was going on.

I know that the US/UK cyber geeks from the NSA/GCHQ put sophisticated tools in the main routers in Sweden to capture data going out of Russia.

The reason being is that a lot of Russian traffic does go out through these lines and on the other side of the vast  empty regions of Russia where very little Internet cables lie, nearly all the Chinese cables pass through US controlled areas like Japan or various islands before reaching the US West coast.

So as at the moment most of the big tech companies, Internet shopping sites and other sites visited by people online are in the US e.g Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter etc; Internet traffic is going to go through the quickest available routes that enter the USA. Pinpointing these key routes so that traffic can be analysed as Snowden revealed is key and both sides of this new cold war have been at it.

Therefore if the US/UK wanted to listen in to all traffic coming out of Russia they would either do it at Sweden when it leaves at its earliest point or in the UK, at one of the major points our cables leave our shores to go off under the Atlantic to the USA. I’m sure these soft targets are high on any Russian nuclear strike or Terrorist attack plan if they wanted to disrupt international communications.

The same goes in reverse though. If Russia wanted to see any traffic going back to them or wanted to divert such traffic they would send it to the nearest place near their countries borders where proxy servers could then send them on e.g Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine etc.

Therefore the Russian cyber defence squads were right to team up with one of the best “anti-virus” tool programmers in diverting traffic from the US and UK all the way through Russian controlled areas where it could be analysed before it reached its destination.

The top Anti-Virus Tools
The best anti-virus tools ranked in order

The following map will show you how our Internet in Europe is laid out and where it enters and leaves Russia and the UK as well as the opposite side where the cables leave China. You will then see the logic in sending traffic to Sweden for any analysis by the US or Russia.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) is reporting today that the Federation is now in a “state of war” thus bringing to full activation President Putin’s “Dead Hand” nuclear order issued 29 July 2014 to The Strategic Missile Forces (SMF).

According to this report, the full activation of the much feared “Dead Hand” nuclear option was authorized under President Putin’s previous order due to the discovery that the nuclear forces of the United Kingdom (UK) were preparing a first strike against military and civilian targets located in the Federation.

The intention of the nuclear forces of the UK preparing a first strike against the Federation, this report says, was revealed by Federal Security Services (FSB) electronic intelligence experts working in conjunction with Kaspersky Lab who discovered last month a massive US National Security Agency (NSA) cyber espionage programme targeting not just Russia, but everyone else on Earth.

Both the FSB and Kaspersky Lab experts, the MoD reports, were able to swiftly reverse engineer the computer code(s) involved in this massive NSA spying operation which then enabled them to electronically obtain the launching codes and coordinates of all the UK’s nuclear weapons showing their plan to launch a first strike against the Federation during the week of 15 March.

Though information of this highly successful FSB-Kaspersky Lab intelligence operation has been suppressed in the West, some counter-news of it has been reported by a few technical websites, including The Verge which in their article reported yesterday titled “A Network Error Routed Traffic For The UK’s Nuclear Weapons Agency Through Russian Telecom”, in part, says:

For the past week, something strange has been going on in the European internet. For five days, web traffic from Texas to certain addresses in the UK has been routed through Ukrainian and Russian telecoms, taking a detour thousands of miles out of the way. Network traffic often takes a circuitous route as a result of network congestion or interconnection difficulties, but neither one would be enough to account for these routes. Instead, this was the result of a bad route announced by Ukraine’s Vega telecom, inserting itself in between.

It’s particularly disconcerting because of the sensitive nature of many of the sites involved. Among the dozens of sites involved was the UK’s Atomic Weapons Establishment, which is tasked with managing and delivering the UK’s nuclear warheads, as well as the UK’s official mail service, the Royal Mail. US defense contractor Lockheed Martin was also running a VPN connection that was caught up in the redirection.

Upon the MoD’s confirmation of the UK’s intention to launch a nuclear first strike against the Federation, this report continues, Russian military forces throughout the country were immediately activated with a special emphasis placed upon massive rocket-artillery maneuvers on the southern borders.

Foreign Minister Lavrov, this report notes, further warned the West this week that Moscow would respond to NATOin an adequate way” as thousands of Norwegian troops neared the Russian border this week preparing for the influx of a US Marine Expeditionary Brigade, estimated to number between 14-18,000, whose tanks, armored vehicles, artillery, ammunition and battle equipment have flooded into Norway this past year.

The MoD also in this report states that the Ministry for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters (EMERCOM) and the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) previously issued an immediate travel ban on firefighters, ambulance drivers rescue troopers, tens of thousands of police officers, prison guards, and other law enforcement agencies who are deemed critically needed during times of war.

Also to be noted, though not contained in this MoD report, are reports from London that Russian personnel and officers have evacuated their embassy and that amass of activity is now being reported throughout Moscow, especially in and around Red Square.

As President Putin, top political officials and military leaders are now under MoD “protection”, other reports (of unknown quality) state that the Kremlin has also “advised” journalists not to leave Moscow and to prepare for a “major announcement” over the next few days.

Though not specifically stated in this MoD report, but strongly alluded to, are that crisis negotiations between Moscow and the West are currently ongoing and have led within the past few hours to NATO’s Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, stating that the alliance does not plan to interfere in the conflict in east Ukraine…”Ukraine is not a member of NATO, so there is a difference between Ukraine and NATO members, because the security guarantee is for NATO allies.”

This NATOassurance”, however, may do little to calm this crisis and avert nuclear war after the Federation’s Investigative Committee launched a criminal case against Robert Scales, a retired US major-general and a Fox News military analyst, who said in a live broadcast this week that the only way for the US to turn the tide in Ukraine is to start killing Russians… “It is Game, Set and Match in Ukraine. The only way the US can have any effect in this region and turn the tide is to start killing Russians. Killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to the Motherland in body bags.”

Liz Kendall and Yvette Cooper would not serve in Jeremy Corbyn shadow cabinet



Liz Kendall and Yvette Cooper would not serve in Jeremy Corbyn shadow cabinet

Fellow candidates and Chuka Umunna threaten to refuse Labour frontbench roles, while Andy Burnham says it is more important to avoid ‘factional politics’

Patrick Wintour - Political editor

I say:

So Fucking What!

These people are obviously “Tory Lite” and are in the wrong party.

The people need a REAL CHOICE, not one between Austerity Heavy and Austerity Slightly Less Heavier.

They need someone who will borrow to invest and create jobs and tax and reduce welfare – LOGIC – not borrow to cover the rising costs of welfare due to just losing jobs and giving people no hope to get another one.

The surprise frontrunner in the Labour leadership contest, Jeremy Corbyn, found himself facing a potential exodus of talent from the front bench if he became party leader with Liz Kendall, Yvette Cooper and Chuka Umunna all saying that they would not serve in a shadow cabinet led by him.

Labour’s leadership battle turned increasingly nasty on Wednesday as Corbyn argued with Tony Blair over the future of the party, while the camps of Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper both claimed that only their candidate could ultimately defeat the leftwinger.

At a leadership hustings organised by LBC, Kendall said on Wednesday night that she would not serve in a Corbyn shadow cabinet: “It would be disastrous for the party and disastrous for the country and we would be out of power for a generation. I don’t want to be a party of protest and I would not be able to stop myself from making that case”.

Initially, Cooper said she was torn about whether she would serve, saying: “In terms of politics I don’t think you should walk away from the Labour party, and I would never do what the SDP did.” She said she would give it considerable thought, before finally confirming she would not stand in any shadow cabinet elections if Corbyn was leader.

Umunna said he would not serve in a Corbyn-led shadow cabinet, adding that he thought the party would be “unelectable” under Corbyn’s leadership .

Burnham said he would serve under Corbyn, arguing: “It was really important that the party came out of the election united. We are not going to get anywhere by running factional politics”.

Corbyn said he could cope without Umunna in his shadow cabinet.

When pressed by Cooper to say if he was really standing to be prime minister or just to be part of a protest movement in the Labour party, he replied: “I am doing this because I want our party to change, and I am [doing] this to put myself to doing the job. If I am elected I would like to promote an awful lot of changes to bring about a more collective approach about the way we do things.

“If all we offer them for the next five years is austerity-lite, cuts in welfare and very little else other than appearing to being approved of by certain rightwing newspapers it does not excite people. This Tory government is very ideological and we are accepting too much of what they are doing.”

Corbyn also refused to say whether he would vote for the country to remain in the EU in a referendum next year.

Elsewhere in the debate, three of the candidates admitted they had smoked cannabis at university, but Corbyn replied that he was “really boring” and that he had never done so.

Earlier, Corbyn took issue with claims by the former prime minister that he was the Tory preference – and hit back by pointing out that Blair has a big problem waiting for the outcome of the government’s Chilcot inquiry into why he had taken Britain to war in Iraq in 2003.

Blair had provoked Corbyn by telling the Progress centre-left thinktank that people whose heart was with the leftwing candidate should “get a transplant”. In his first intervention in the Labour leadership election, the former prime minister said the party will never win with a traditional left platform, saying it will instead endure four election defeats in a row.

Blair said that Labour’s 2015 election campaign was based old-fashioned tax-and-spend agenda drawn from the Star Trek era, and adding that it was “out of the playbook of the 1980s”.

The former Labour leader was speaking after a shock YouGov opinion poll published by the Times showing Corbyn is set to defeat Burnham in the final ballot by 53% to 47%.

Supporters of Burnham said the YouGov findings showed Cooper, third in the poll, was dead in the water. Her team countered by saying that she could still get into the final ballot after other candidates are eliminated, and if she did so was the more likely to defeat Corbyn since she could attract a wider range of support.

Cooper also launched an attack on interim leader Harriet Harman’s handling of Monday night’s welfare vote. She said: “It is a complete mess … I don’t think it has been handled right. I think we should be opposing the bill. The mess we got into has made everyone confused. A messy compromise was made to try to hold the party together and it has failed.”

Corbyn was the only one of the four leaders in the debate to say he would give Ed Miliband a job if he was elected saying he would ask him to be energy secretary, a job he had previously done well.

A third of the 55,000 new members joining the party since the 2015 election are under 30, and the single most common age is 18, the national executive were told this week. Corbyn has targeted these new members with promises to abolish tuition fees and a rejection of the 2015 election campaign as austerity-lite.

In remarks to Progress, Blair expressed astonishment at the party’s reluctance to learn lessons from its defeats: “There’s no need to go through four election defeats to get to the place that it’s pretty obvious we should be now,” he said.

Tony Blair: ‘If your heart’s with Jeremy Corbyn, get a transplant’

He said he did not support Corbyn, but suggested that he would not quit Labour should the leftwinger become leader. He said he was “Labour through and through”.

Blair said the party should not act as though it was not in favour of reforming public services or regaining economic credibility out of a misplaced sense of principle.

“If we do, then the public won’t vote for us, not because our thoughts are too pure, but because they’re too out of touch with the world they live in,” he said. Blair also said the SNP has a “reactionary” ideology similar to that of a caveman.

The former prime minister said the SNP was “blaming someone else” for Scotland’s problems and that Labour had to criticise the Scottish government head-on to regain power.

He said: “Nationalism is not a new phenomenon. When the SNP talk about a new politics it is the oldest politics in the world. It is the politics of the first caveman council where the caveman came out from the council where there had been difficult decisions and pointed with his club across the forest and said, ‘there over there, they are the problem’. It’s blame someone else. However you dress it up, it is a reactionary political philosophy.”

And if ex MI5 Mole Tony Blair says one thing we should all be doing the opposite.

This war monger should be on trial for not just taking us to war illegally but also for his insurgency into the Labour party when he turned it from a party in which MI5 routinely spied on Labour MP’s because they might be Russian Agents to an “establishment” safe party. One that towed the US Foreign Policy line, turned from CND to allow nukes everywhere, privatised the nations Gold, and indebted us to our eyeballs – plus made millions after leaving on book tours and “peace missions” that failed.
