Do Like "my articles"?

Then check out the rest. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state. To see all the articles I have personally written for this site you can visit the Dark Politricks articles section for a full listing.

Your help is required!

The Internet is under attack by big business and big government who are trying to control the flow of information any way they can. Using the threat of Terrorism and Cyber attacks the western world (especially USA/UK/Australian governments) are expanding their power to control internet traffic and recently Google and Verizon signed a deal that will end net neutrality.

What this means is alternative news sites like Dark Politricks and many others will find it harder to bring you the news that the mainstream media wished you didn't know about. This is because they will be either blocked by Chinese style firewalls (as Australia has already introduced) or they will be pushed down the Google rankings by special algorithms that control a sites listing.

Web servers and bandwidth costs money and articles take time to write. Whilst I try to bring you the best of the alternative news every day I have also personally written hundreds of articles for this site and you won't find many one paragraph or half hearted articles with my name at the top of them.

Please donate

Whilst you may not want to donate money to an information clearing house website that collates articles about the war on terror in one place I would like to remind you that:

  • I am asking you to help me continue my OWN writing not the collation of other articles written by others.
  • I have already been kicked off many servers and blogging sites for my own writings due to various reasons.
  • I allow my own work to be re-printed across the web without complaint. Just search Google for Dark Politricks articles that are not on this site to see for yourself. My articles have appeared in many places including Infowars.com, noliesradio.org and Policestate.co.uk and many others besides.

So to help continue my own writing I would appreciate any dontations that you feel appropriate, especially if you like one of my articles or essays. Just think of all the extra articles and links as a collection of related news stories that mean you don't have to visit hundreds of different sites each day to get your news about the world of politricks and the war on terror. All money goes towards hosting my own server (not a shared server) and prevents me having to litter the site with flashing adverts as many others do. I realise people are having a tough time in the current economic climate.

Thanks for your continued support.

CDC to Purchase Body Bags in Anticipation of More Ebola Deaths



CDC to Purchase Body Bags in Anticipation of More Ebola Deaths

Federal agency issues “services sought” notice for PPE supplies

CDC to Purchase Body Bags in Anticipation of More Ebola Deaths 080414eboladeath

The Centers for Disease Control is looking to purchase body bags and a host of other personal protective equipment in response to the Ebola outbreak as concerns continue to linger about the spread of the virus.

A “sources sought” notice posted on FedBizOpps reveals that, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Procurement and Grants Office (PGO) is seeking multiple sources of supply for personal protective equipment (PPE) for potential use in the current Ebola Virus Disease outbreak response.”

According to an attachment entitled “List of Personal Protective Equipment for Sources Sought Notice,” the federal agency is looking to source suppliers of body bags that can hold 200-250 lbs of weight. The bags must also include, “At least 6 handholds included in the body bag to allow burial team to hand carry it safely.”

The advisory states that the body bags and other equipment are intended to be used both in West Africa and in response to other Ebola outbreaks worldwide.

The CDC is also looking to source surgical face masks, sterile gowns, infectious waste containers, and tarps amongst other PPE supplies. The notice does not specify the quantity of body bags that the CDC is looking to obtain.

In September, the State Department ordered 5,000 body bags to be sent to West Africa. The Ebola outbreak has infected over 13,700 people worldwide, with over 4900 fatalities.

Earlier this month, the CDC instructed funeral homes in the United States to bury Ebola victims in hermetically sealed caskets which must be secure against the escape of microorganisms and have valid documentation for being airtight. Last month, the CDC also issued a three page list of recommendations which warned funeral home workers not to carry out autopsies or to embalm corpses.

As we reported yesterday, the U.S. government ordered 250,000 Hazmat suits to be sent to Dallas, location of the first Ebola case in the United States. One company alone has sold over a million Hazmat suits to government agencies worldwide since August.

In an op-ed for Forbes published yesterday, former FDA official Scott Gottlieb’M.D. warned that larger and more frequent Ebola outbreaks will inevitably hit American cities in the near future and that the imminent onset of the flu season will make it harder to keep tabs on potential Ebola victims in the United States.

The FBI Can Bypass Encryption



The FBI Can Bypass Encryption

dissidentvoice.org
By William A. Blunden

Encryption has gained the attention of actors on both sides of the mass surveillance debate. For example, in a speech at the Brookings Institution FBI Director James Comey complained that strong encryption was causing U.S. security services to go dark. Comey described encrypted data as follows:

Its the equivalent of a closet that cant be opened, a safe deposit box that cant be opened, a safe that cant ever be cracked.

Got that? Comey essentially says that encryption is a sure bet. Likewise during an interview with James Bamford whistleblower Ed Snowden confidently announced that:

We have the means and we have the technology to end mass surveillance without any legislative action at all, without any policy changes… By basically adopting changes like making encryption a universal standard where all communications are encrypted by default we can end mass surveillance not just in the United States but around the world.

If you glanced over the above excerpts and took them at face value, youd probably come away thinking that all you needed to protect your civil liberties is the latest encryption widget. Right? Wow, let me get my check book out! Paging Mr. Omidyar

Not so fast, bucko. Theres an important caveat, some fine print that Ed himself spelled out when he initially contacted film director Laura Poitras. In particular Snowden qualified that:

If the device you store the private key and enter your passphrase on has been hacked, it is trivial to decrypt our communications.

This corollary underscores the reality that, despite the high profile sales pitch thats being repeated endlessly, strong encryption alone isnt enough. Hi-tech subversion is a trump card as the Heartbleed bug graphically illustrated. In light of the NSAs mass subversion programs it would be na’ve to think that there arent other critical bugs like Heartbleed, subtle intentional flaws, out in the wild being leveraged by spies.

The FBIs Tell

James Comeys performance at Brookings was an impressive public relations stunt. Yet recent history is chock full of instances where the FBI employed malware like Magic Lantern and CIPAV to foil encryption and identify people using encryption-based anonymity software like Tor. If its expedient, the FBI will go so far as to impersonate a media outlet to fool suspects into infecting their own machines. It would seem that crooks arent the only attackers who wield social engineering techniques.

In fact, the FBI has gotten so adept at hacking computers, utilizing what are referred to internally as Network Investigative Techniques, that the FBI wants to change the law to reflect this. The Guardian reports on how the FBI is asking the U.S. Advisory Committee on Rules and Criminal Procedure to move the legal goal posts, so to speak:

The amendment [proposed by the FBI] inserts a clause that would allow a judge to issue warrants to gain remote access to computers located within or outside that district (emphasis added) in cases in which the district where the media or information is located has been concealed through technological means. The expanded powers to stray across district boundaries would apply to any criminal investigation, not just to terrorist cases as at present.

In other words the FBI wants to be able to hack into a computer when its exact location is shrouded by anonymity software. Once they compromise the targeted machine its pretty straightforward to install a software implant (i.e. malware) and exfiltrate whatever user data they want, including encryption passwords.

If encryption is really the impediment that director Comey makes it out to be, then why is the FBI so keen to amend the rules in a manner which implies that they can sidestep it? In the parlance of poker this is a tell.

Denouement

As a developer who has built malicious software designed to undermine security tools I can attest that there is a whole burgeoning industry which prays on na’ve illusions of security. Companies like Hacking Team have found a lucrative niche offering products to the highest bidder that compromise security and a drumroll please defeat encryption.

Theres a moral to this story. Cryptomes John Young prudently observes:

Protections of promises of encryption, proxy use, Tor-like anonymity and military-grade comsec technology are magic acts — ELINT, SIGINT and COMINT always prevail over comsec. The most widely trusted and promoted systems are the most likely to be penetrated, exploited, spied upon, successfully attacked, covertly compromised with faults hidden by promoters, operators, competitors, compromisers and attackers all of whom warn against the others while mutually benefiting from continuous alarms about security and privacy.

When someone promises you turnkey anonymity and failsafe protection from spies, make like that guy on The Walking Dead and reach for your crossbow. Mass surveillance is a vivid expression of raw power and control. Hence what ails society is fundamentally a political problem, with economic and technical facets, such that safeguarding civil liberties on the Internet will take a lot more than just the right app.

Why We’re Poorer: Inflation and Deflation Are Now Globalized



Why We’re Poorer: Inflation and Deflation Are Now Globalized

By Charles Hugh Smith
washingtonsblog.com

We’re being hit with a double-whammy: Wages are under deflationary pressure, and almost everything else is exposed to inflationary pressure.

As correspondent Mark G. observed in Globalization = Permanent Instability, it’s impossible to understand inflation and deflation now except in a global context.

Now that prices for commodities such as oil and grain are set on the global market, local surpluses don’t push prices down. If North America has record harvests of grain, on a national basis we’d expect prices to fall as local supply exceeds local demand.

But since grain is tradable, i.e. it can be shipped to other markets where demand and thus prices are much higher, the price in North America reflects supply and demand everywhere on the planet, not just in North America.

If we put ourselves in the shoes of a farmer or grain wholesaler, this is a boon: why sell your product for 1X locally, when it fetches 2X in other countries? You’d be crazy not to put it on a boat and get double the price elsewhere.

As the share of the economy exposed to digitization increases, so does the share of work that can be done anywhere on the planet. When work is digitized, it is effectively commoditized, meaning that it no longer matters who performs the work or where they live.

If people in countries with low wages can perform the work, why on Earth would you pay double to have high-wage people do the work? It makes no sense. Taking advantage of the differences in local pay scales is called labor arbitrage, as the employer is trading on (i.e. arbitraging) two sets of prices.

It’s not just labor that can be arbitraged: currency, interest rates, risk, environmental regulations, commodities–huge swaths of the global economy can be arbitraged.

The basic idea of the global carry trade is to borrow money cheaply in a currency that’s weakening and use the money to buy low-risk, high-yield assets in currencies that are gaining in relative value.

It’s a slam dunk arbitrage: not only does the trader earn an essentially free return (borrowing yen at 1%, for example, converting the yen to dollars and buying Treasury bonds paying 3%), but there is a bonus yield on the dollar strengthening against the yen: a two-fer return.

Global labor is in over-supply–one reason why wages in the U.S. have been declining in real terms, i.e. when inflation is factored in. The better description is purchasing power: how much can your paycheck buy?

Here is a chart reflecting the decline in purchasing power of U.S. earnings since 2006:

Courtesy of David Stockman, here is a chart of inflation (i.e. loss of purchasing power) since 2000:

Whatever isn’t tradable can skyrocket in cost because, well, it can–since there’s little competition in healthcare and school districts, both of which operate as quasi-monopolies, school administrators can skim $600,000 a year: Fired school leaders get big payouts:

A former Union City, CA superintendent took home more than $600,000 last year, making her the top earner on a new online database tracking salary and benefit information for California public school employees.

Since healthcare is only tradable at the margins, for example, medical tourism, where Americans travel abroad to take advantage of treatments that are 20% the cost of the same care in the U.S., healthcare costs can rise 500% when measured as a percentage of wages devoted to healthcare:

Note that this doesn’t mean that healthcare costs rose along with wages–it means a larger share of our earnings is going to healthcare than ever before. Other than a brief period in the 1990s when productivity gains drove wages higher, healthcare costs have risen faster than earnings every decade. The consequence is simple: the more of our earnings that go to healthcare, the less there is for savings, investments and other spending.

In a way, we’re being hit with a double-whammy: whatever can’t be traded, such as the local school district and hospital, can charge outrageous fees and pay insiders outrageous sums for gross incompetence, while whatever can be traded can go up in price based on demand and currency fluctuations elsewhere.

Meanwhile, as labor is in over-supply virtually everywhere, wages are declining when measured in purchasing power. Wages are under deflationary pressure, and almost everything else is exposed to inflationary pressure. No wonder we feel poorer: most of us are poorer.

Gallup: Less Than 50% Support For Stricter Gun Laws In America



Gallup: Less Than 50% Support For Stricter Gun Laws In America

Close to a historical low

October 31, 2014

A new Gallup poll finds that support for stricter gun laws has fallen below 50%, a significant drop since December 2012, following the Newtown school shooting.

Gallup: Less Than 50% Support For Stricter Gun Laws In America ljkdgjzga0 ljbmnwptkvg

Less than half, 47%, in the US said they they favor stricter laws covering the sale of firearms, down from 58% who expressed support for more stringent gun control laws nearly two years ago.

According to the poll 38% of Americans believe current gun laws are sufficient, with 14% saying the laws should be made less strict.

The 47% figure sits just above the historical low of 43%, which was recorded three years ago in 2011.

Gallup notes that a high of 60% favored stricter controls a decade ago, but since that time there has been a steady decline of support, excluding a brief surge following the Newtown incident.

The drop has been consistent across almost all demographics, including gender, political persuasion and race.

The same poll found that a near-record high, 73%, of Americans believe there should not be a ban on handgun possession.

Still, one in four Americans say handgun possession should be prohibited for everyone except the police and “other authorized persons” including private security and the military.

Gallup notes that “while shootings may still occur with disturbing regularity in the U.S., there is a disconnect between those events and support for making gun laws stricter.”

The issue of gun control was in the news again recently following a high profile shootings in Seattle and Ottawa, Canada. In addition, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder admitted that his inability to enact more stringent gun control regulations was the biggest failure of his tenure, saying the matter weighs heavily on his mind.

Anti-Obama Artist Gets Secret Service Visit For Joke Tweets



Anti-Obama Artist Gets Secret Service Visit For Joke Tweets

Sabo warns anyone with political opinion could be targeted by feds

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
October 31, 2014

Enigmatic anti-Obama artist Sabo received a visit from the Secret Service this week in response to tweets in which he joked about Lee Harvey Oswald returning as a zombie.

Although the tweets were sent out a month ago, two Secret Service agents showed up at Sabo’s home on Wednesday to check if the artist represented a violent threat to President Barack Obama.

In a hilarious exchange, Sabo spoke to the agents while he was working on a toilet seat that features Obama’s face on the lid.

“Did you send out the tweets about bringing back Lee Harvey Oswald as a zombie,” asks one of the agents.

“How likely is that gonna happen?” responds Sabo.

In another tweet, Sabo poked fun at actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who earlier this month received criticism for her fawning adulation of Obama during a Democratic Party fundraiser at her house in Santa Monica during which she told the president, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

Sabo’s depiction of Obama as the Joker in some of his art serves as a reminder that others have been targeted by the feds simply for making fun of the President, such as the creators of a float in the July 4th annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska which portrayed Obama as a zombie, prompting an investigation by the Department of Justice.
