Half Past Human dot com tweets from Friday. —djo—

{ Saturday, 17 January, 2015:  We were chatting about putting out our usual news & headlines page yesterday when a friend retweeted the above. Clif at Half Past Human dot com has been mining strategic word changes on the internet and became very good at deciphering coming events that our ‘collective unconscious’ is aware of. And then he was able to narrow trends down and figure out when and where a lot of things that were probably coming would happen. Here he said that among his latest findings he sees the “last bankster is strangled w/guts of last priest/pope/imam/rabbi, then humans will be free! Probably by 2019 when [vatican burns]!” This sounds like he believes that organized religion has been holding us down. We have heard from other ‘seers’ that ‘the age of Aquarius’ will free us from the propaganda and mind control of the age of Pisces. These seers believe that the age of Pisces has either been gasping its last breaths or we’ve been in the transition period. — Remote viewer, Major Ed Dames who taught ‘scientific’ remote viewing to U.S. Armed services personnel. Major Dames does not claim to be the best at seeing the future, but he is convinced that we are heading into what he calls the ‘Mad Max Scenario’ in which our economies will be brought down and political infrastructure will fail. And he believes that will happen this year/ is already happening. Major Ed Dames believes a ruthless group of mind controling humans born on earth here will be seizing control and that will be the end of the ‘beautiful experiment in free will and liberty that was the United States of America’.  — We have opposing views here. Some believe our world is falling apart, others believe it is coming together. Some believe that the “Banksters” and “Elitists” and the “Dark Ops Illuminati” have been pulling our strings, manipulating us and controlling everything from behind the scenes forever. They believe that these bad guys have created organized religion and warped the messages of all legitimate prophets who have tried to warn us about their schemes. They believe, for instance, that Paul, who became really active in forming the Christian Church was actually a Roman propagandist, who Christ called a ‘False Prophet’ who was canonized, not by Jesus and His followers, but by a conspiracy of those who had political power in Rome and wanted to maintain it. They warped Christ’s message, which was that all of us could become fully awake and powerful sons and daughters of God- into ‘You need to follow the church- you can only find salvation through the church, you have to do things our way and do what we tell you to do or you will burn in hell for all of eternity.’ From “Love and do as thou wilt” to “Kill for God and Country”. From “Consider the lilies of the fields-” The Father provides for them, are You not more than they are? to “Whosoever shall not work, shall not eat,” et cetera. Focus on fear instead of Divine Inspiration. Looks like the time when we will see a huge clash between the forces of Light and Darkness may be closer than we thought. Be ready. Pray for Guidance. Pray for Angelic intervention. Pray we make it through this.  —djo— }

Monday, 19 January, 2015  -( +32˚F / +0˚C  with light snow falling in the darkness @ 6:30 am near Ithaca )-  -( +45˚F / +7˚C   & pouring rain and still dark @ 7:30 am Closer to Halifax —jim w—)-

text below

This is from “Rabble News” At rabble.ca * Link * —djo—

{ Canada’s Conservative government is set to introduce expanded powers for surveillance agencies, likely for the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). – Speaking last week in Vancouver, Prime Minister Stephen Harper stated that the government is “looking at additional powers to make sure that our security agencies have the range of tools available,” apparently to address incidents like the shootings in Paris. However, judging by past policy patterns reaching the highest government levels, such new “powers” will likely be aimed at stifling and criminalizing voices of dissent, here are some reasons why. – Over recent years, the track record of Canada’s state surveillance agencies has been made clear through numerous access to information requests and public accounts, the record is that First Nations have been a prime target for government spying, whileenvironmentalist and social justice groups are also closely watched. – Throughout the Idle No More protests both CSIS and the RCMP, working in concert, monitored closely the community protests for treaty rights, actions that inspired manyIndigenous youth to vocalize publicly the apartheid realities facing First Nations people. – Conservative politicians refused to ever fully recognize the voices and demands of Indigenous people on the streets during Idle No More, like the Nishiyuu Walkers, instead turning shadowy government agents on the first peoples of these lands. By extension, all other major Canadian political parties, both the Liberals and the NDP, have failed to denounce clearly, the sustained spying by CSIS and the RCMP on First Nations communities. – Within the context of the “additional powers” that Harper is publicly indicating will be given to spy agencies in the coming period, the likely reality is that additional attention from CSIS will be focused on First Nations peoples protesting for human and land rights in Canada. – On CSEC, Canada’s digital surveillance agency, likely involved in the same type of mass data collection practiced by the National Security Agency (NSA) south of the border, something never publicly disputed by CSEC, the new “powers” that Harper is speaking about will also most likely involve CSEC, an organization with tight operational links to the NSA. – Details made public by American whistleblower Edward Snowden, indicate that Canada’s CSEC maintains a “close co-operative relationship” with the NSA, a working collaboration that involves CSEC offering “resources for advanced collection, processing and analysis.” To date the Canadian government and by extension CSEC, has never confirmed or denied any of these details, in state security terms we know very well what that means. – Today, in the wake of the shootings in Paris, the Conservative government in Ottawa is working to exploit the deaths and by extension the larger neo-colonial political crisis in France, to expand the role of state surveillance agencies, like CSIS and CSEC, that define contemporary neo-liberal authoritarianism, a political orientation that is firmly rooted and extends from the colonial era. – Instead of embarking on a real political discussion on the ways that contemporary western systems of power are central to creating the conditions for “terrorism,” Harper is simply expanding the surveillance practices of neo-colonialism and by extension justifying war. – Harper’s comments in Vancouver on the Paris shootings, intentionally exploit the violence with the aim of legitimizing Canada’s role in the bombing of Iraq. “And they have declared war on any country like ourselves that values freedom, openness and tolerance,” stated Harper, “and we may not like this and wish it would go away, but it is not going to go away and the reality is we are going to have to confront it.” – In real terms this is a call from Harper for prolonged Canadian participation in war, the sustained bombing of Iraq, a military campaign purportedly aiming to save the Iraqi people from the Islamic State (ISIS) group by bombing their cities and towns. – Bombing people to save them, that was an argument made by the U.S. government during the war in Vietnam and again with the 2003 invasion of Iraq, both interventions that clearly has lead to sustained violence and human suffering, remember the Mỹ Lai massacre. How are more western bombs going to liberate Iraq, or Syria, from ISIS? – Most certainly Canada’s moves to join the ‘war’ against ISIS will lead to significant profits for Canada’s ever growing military industrial complex, while simply leading to more death and destruction in Iraq. In reality the entire bombing campaign in Iraq is rooted in violent colonial logic, the very same framework that is fueling the type of violence seen this past week in Paris, the people carrying out the shootings in France spoke about the images of US torture at Abu Ghraib prison and also the Israeli military occupation of Palestine as reasons of the attacks. – Now clearly nothing justifies the killing of cartoonists, or civilians in a supermarket in Paris, but we can’t continue to ignore that western colonialism, past and present, is creating the context for such violent incidents to continue. In a cycle of violence, rooted in colonialism, those holding the monopoly of military power, the U.S., France and Canada, clearly have the greater ability and responsibility to stop the cycle and create real conditions for a just peace. – Instead of examining in truth the roots of the violence, Canada’s Conservative government is simply abusing the memories of all those who died in France, by using the shootings to justify the entrenchment of a surveillance state and to cheerlead neo-colonial military policies abroad. – Stefan Christoff is a writer, community organizer and musician living in Montreal who contributes to rabble.ca find Stefan @spirodon – Image: “Strength in the Face of Fighter Jets” by Nidal Elkhairy  }

The top ten headlines in maroon/brown under “Most Viewed” are almost always all new, with CBC repeating or rewording something every now and then. Some of the green healines under “Other” are new, the ones at the top of the list are the most new. The top 4 purple headlines under “Local / New Brunswick” are New, except when some of those top 4 are repeated over the weekend or a holiday.

White Deer? We were accused of trying to pass a goat off as a deer in New Brunswick.  *** Our deer friends are back and happy that we’ve got a nice big bag of oats to share with them for Yuletide celebrations.

That is probably a good thing. ***  —jim w—  *** UPDATE We thought we saw a news story that reported that the white deer in this photo had been killed by a bus up the street. Nope. Tonight she was one of several deer who showed up to thank us for the oats we give them.

-Julian Assange’s Whistleblower Foundation has new members- Whistleblowers in general are peole who subscribe to higher standards of ethics and morality than their bosses or supervisors or government authoritarian types and are usually shocked to find out that lots of people do not back them up when they seek help because they’ve reported an injustice, or worse- and been ‘rewarded by being fired or even charged with crimes against corporations that the ‘justice system’, instead of locking up the bad guys, turns out to be protecting from the good guys, Constables got their start as enforcers for corrupt officials, corrupt ‘Nobles’ and ‘Royals’. When ‘serve and protect becomes law enforcement- that’s bad news for everybody.   —djo—

Privacy Breakthrough?

-Polaris, “Let’s Encrypt” Will mean more ubiquitous Web Encryption and Privacy- Article below:

Most recently, Mozilla and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) announced “Let’s Encrypt,” their collaboration with Cisco, Akamai, IdenTrust, and researchers at the University of Michigan in attempt to take the first big step towards a more universally secure Internet. One of the biggest weaknesses in the underlying architecture of the web as it exists currently is the highly bureaucratic and complex (not to mention costly) system required for websites to obtain and deploy the SSL/TSL certificates needed to protect your web surfing experience (these are the basic pieces of information that allow the little lock icon to work in your browser, signaling your session is private and secure). “Let’s Encrypt” will extend these digital certificates to all websites by starting an easy-to-use and free-of-charge certificate authority that issues them; this means that web encryption will not just be available to big players like banking services or email providers, but will set a much higher bar for Internet security across all websites, regardless of their ability to pay for a certificate or properly install it.

We are strong, adamant supporters of this initiative and are excitedly awaiting it’s unveiling in 2015 under a new nonprofit called the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).

In addition to this, Mozilla announced it’s own strategic privacy initiative in collaboration the Tor Project and CDT. We’ll be consulting “on privacy technology, open standards, and future product collaborations” with the open-source browser to help it more effectively and appropriately bring privacy features into its products. “We want to accelerate pragmatic and user-focused advances in privacy technology for the Web, giving users more control, awareness and protection in their Web experiences,” the company explained via its privacy blog. – We believe in the possibilities that privacy innovations could make possible, and are excited and honored to be a part of the process. – What do these changes mean for the short- and long- term future of the security of the Internet? – There will soon be no excuses for not baking encryption into web services, and in turn, consumer privacy and protection into the tools we use to navigate the digital highway.

– “Our ultimate aim is for human rights defenders, journalists and civil society groups to be able to carry out their legitimate work without fear of surveillance, harassment, intimidation, arrest or torture,” Amnesty International said in an online posting introducing Detekt. – Whistleblower Edward Snowden exposed the extent of government surveillance on activists and citizens. Amnesty said it is concerned about a chill on human rights activists and journalists, especially those in repressive countries, because of such surveillance.

Microsoft fixes 19-year old Windows bug  { * – Microsoft Corp issued patches on Tuesday to fix a bug in its Windows operating system that remained undiscovered for 19 years. – The bug, which is present in every version of Microsoft Windows from Windows 95 onward, allows an attacker to remotely take over and control a computer.

– IBM Corp’s cybersecurity research team discovered the bug in May, describing it as a “significant vulnerability” in the operating system. – “The buggy code is at least 19 years old and has been remotely exploitable for the past 18 years,” IBM X-Force research team said in its blog on Tuesday. – *

*** The bugs were not “undiscovered”, Government Hackers spoke about this on Coast to Coast A.M. before the summer of 2002. Art Bell was the host. This program is not listed in the current Coast to Coast A.M. archives, at least I could not find it by searching ‘hackers’. 3 men who were quite ‘enthusiastic’ and talkative about their experience working for hackers for US Government agencies that ‘officially do not exist’ -one of them told us he has an ashtray with one of those officially non-existent agency’s official logo on it- told us that microsoft was fully aware of holes in their operating system but were not going to do anything about it because the government of the US liked it the way it was. They said it was simple for any hacker to get into your computer if you were ‘running windows’ -“Especially if you have printer sharing turned on.” && They also said they liked Apple Computers back then because it was possible to tell a Mac to do only one thing at a time, not like windows computers which could have all sorts of nonsense going on undetected in the background.  – AND Another Coast to Coast A.M. guest, much more recently, related talking to a computer pioneer a long time ago, when dial ups were the latest thing, and when the computer guy finished showing him something, he would not leave the room without shutting off his computer, and disconnecting the phone line from his computer. When the C2C guest asked the computer guy what that was all about, the computer guy said that he, as in insider, knew that the US Government could already get into anyone’s computer that was connected to Delphi or GEnie or AOL, even if the computer had been turned off. — And, now that almost every computer in the world has WiFi capabilities- you can never fully disconnect yourself from the possibility that they can turn your computer on and gather any information you have, or were ever connected to- any time they want to do that- With the possible exception that you might be ‘safe’ if you live inside a Faraday cage, a hundred feet or more beneath the surface of this planet. Welcome to the future, it sucks.  —jim w—   }

Feds Run News Blacklist, Ban Employee Access To Website

– A federal agency banned public employees from accessing news stories at Blacklock’s Reporter via government internet servers, documents confirm. Confidential records show Shared Services Canada imposed the government-wide blackout on website access by hundreds of thousands of staff. Files on the blacklisting were obtained through Access To Information. – Shared Services Canada offered no explanation. A 218-page file detailing the ban is heavily censored and conceals email messages in which Shared Services staff discuss the action in messages headed, “Block Domain: Blacklocks.ca”. – “This is outrageous conduct,” said Blacklock’s publisher Holly Doan, who noted the newsroom first learned of the blacklisting from individual subscribers in federal departments who were unable to access news content. Shared Services Canada manages telecom services for 43 departments. – No reason is given for the blacklisting. Blacklock’s is an accredited member of the Parliamentary Press Gallery covering bills, regulations, Access to Information and federal courts. – “It’s astonishing to see Canada join the short list of countries that forbid public employees from accessing internet news sites,” Doan said. “This is not only Orwellian, it appears to breach the government’s own guidelines on workplace internet use.” – Cabinet’s official Policy On Acceptable Network & Device Use adopted in 2013 permits federal employees to “search for information online” and “share links to professional activities and events or interesting and relevant articles”. The Policy also details “unacceptable use” of government computers including access to “hate propaganda”; “pornography”; “obscenity”; and “illegal gambling”. – Doan said, “Surely Shared Services Canada can tell the difference between Blacklock’s and a jihadist website or crime syndicate”; “No rational agency would blacklist an accredited news site in the name of security or crime prevention”. Doan noted the Blacklock’s ban appeared to be revoked September 9, the same day the publication filed a formal request for records from Shared Services Canada. – ‘Way Ahead There, Boss Man’ – Documents indicate the government’s central internet provider blocks numerous domain sites. Shared Services Canada would not explain how many sites it has blacklisted, what their names are, or how many others are accredited news sites. “We do not comment on the specifics of methods used to protect the Government of Canada’s IT infrastructure,” said Marie-Helene Rouillard, a Shared Services spokesperson. – Access To Information records show the department’s IT security division blocked the website blacklocks.ca from last August 22, sending an email alert to numerous agencies including the Department of Industry, Correctional Service of Canada, tax department and others. “The email went to all contacts we have on record,” Dave Tough, a Shared Services security analyst, writes in one August 25 email; “Way ahead of you there, boss-man.” – Tough rated the alert of “high importance”, and indicated several IT staff monitored the news site. Blacklock’s was also cited in an August 27 Cyber Brief distributed to telecom staff across all government agencies; “Cyber Briefs are publications released by the Government of Canada with the goal of preventing widespread incidents,” the memo reads. All references to Blacklock’s were lengthy and censored. – Tough did not reply to repeated requests for an interview. “At no time did our newsroom pose a security threat to the nation,” said Publisher Doan. – Under cabinet’s Policy on workplace computer use, more than 200,000 federal employees are permitted to “watch online broadcasts of work-related content” and “keep up-to-date with news and current events”, according to Examples Of Acceptable Use. Other permitted activities include “subscribe to web feeds”; “check the weather forecast”; “confirm bus schedule information”; “read or contribute to online forums”; and “visit social networking sites to connect with family and friends”. – Forbidden computer activities include using workplace computers to “make public comments about government policies”; “engage in political activity”; or “breach the duty of loyalty requirement for public servants”. –

{  We had actual breaking news last evening.   —djo— }

{  & Today, After briefly conferring with our online staff – 😉 – I had to go get ‘big water’ for our cooler and a couple loaves of ‘day-old’ bread and stuff like that there.  Today’s noon radio broadcast from Halifax sounded a whole lot different from yesterday’s evening news:

– Two ex military types were on the air. One of them was a command level officer who was today’s go-to person. The first guy -not the general- said, -not word for word, I didn’t record this >>—-> Harper’s had us at war for the last 12 or 13 years and he acts surprised that somebody who might have ties with one of the countries we’ve been at war with might attack our soldiers? <—-<<  And I’m pretty sure it was the General who said, again I can’t remember this word for word:  >>—-> Security was lax at the Parliament buildings, not because of action or complaints from some Civil Libertarian types, but because the Harper Government cut back funds, got rid of the commissionaires who had been doing security duty and cut funds to what security operations we had left. – And I think the go-to General responded to someone’s concerns about loss of privacy and civil rights by saying that security measures should be kept at a safe distance from the doors of the Parliament buildings- not because that could be less intrusive, but because security personnel at the doors would not have enough time to stop a determined attacker who was armed.

– Today’s tone was a whole lot calmer and more sane than I expected. People from Atlantic Canada do not seem to be in love with the ‘Harper Conservatives’, and they do not appear to be ‘buying into’ the idea that ‘we should surrender what rights and liberties we have left’.  Even a cashier in a convenience store up here told me that she had noticed that everything felt a whole lot different and less crazy than it felt last night. One person said, “There are 35 million Canadians up here and two or three of them went nuts? I don’t feel any less safe and secure than I did last week.”

– & I heard one semi- off-the-wall suggestion, here we go, complete with pre-amble- “I remember an old Star Trek episode from the original series where Captain Kirk and the gang tried to convince one very peaceful race that they were in danger. In response, the ‘endangered’ society’s citizens just sort of half closed their eyes and made the weapons of anybody who held one impossible to hold, they like burned the hands of the people who thought they could use them. Don’t we have screening technology that could detect bullets and something like high tech heaters that could focus on those bullets? Show dummies with loaded guns in their pockets having their legs blown off  in a reinforced screening facility? Wouldn’t that convince would be attackers that their weapons would explode in their hands? Or their pockets? There’s gotta be a way something like that would work.-“

  – Um, luckily, this person was explaining his idea to somebody else and I didn’t need to respond that I would have to go think about that for a while before I let myself come up with an opinion I could endorse and/or live with.  —jim w— }

– “Thursday, 23 October, 2014 – Ack! We live in a violent culture. Nobody under the age of responsibility planned it this way, at least not in this lifetime. – When the television programmes you plunk your kids down in front of are violent— When their sports are violent— When somebody out there has decided that your games and distractions should all be violent—- Why didn’t you see this coming? – Good, honest young men and women are being duped into taking up arms to support one lie against another. Embrace the love of life. Embrace the love of love. Embrace the preciousness of every life on this planet. Support each other. – To hell with the ideas that kill. To hell with philosophies that say it’s okay to kill for king and country. – We were not told, “Thou shalt not kill unless your government tells you to-” — We were not told, “Thou shalt not kill unless the controlling, obsessive men who took over and subverted your religions tell you to.” — Do not pray for vengeance. – Pray for guidance. Pray for protection from the lies that too many of our contemporaries allow to control their lives. – Pray we call come together and dismiss the governments and (small r) religions that allow darkness to smirk and laugh themselves silly because they’ve been pulling the strings and spitting out the words that convince you that you are working God’s Will when you believe you have the right to destroy the lives of any of God’s Children. – Get thee behind us, thou dupes of the dark side. – Unzip the uniforms and find there are Children of God inside. Burn down the deceptions and realize that any true Religion nurtures your body, mind, soul and spirit, and tells you that we are all one spirit. We are all children of the same divine intelligence. – Smash your delusions and realize we are all One. Before it’s too late. ———jda———

“Secret Space Plane”

U.S. Robotic space plane lands after secret 2-year journey around Earth   { * And somebody on CBC teevee slipped today and said that there were a lot of space craft in the sky around Mars looking at the near fly-by of the comet, which was described as ‘the size of a small mountain’ but depicted as being almost round. Kind of like a maginified golf ball after somebody hit it with a sledge hammer from several different directs. *  —jim w— }

Why chimps kill other chimps — U.S. study uncovers main reason   { Male chimps kill other male chimps in order to increase the probability that they will be the ones who get to father the most baby chimps. -Scientists used to believe that the reason chimps killed each other had a lot more to do with tensions that increased when human communities expanded into chimp territory. Nope, it’s mostly sexual and a little bit territorial with keeping chimp guys away from ‘their’ chimp women.  —Sounds like high school and university fraternity attitudes.—  —djo— }

“- But in a letter to the UBCM’s president, B.C. Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone said he rejects the conclusions of the report. – B.C. Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone rejects the findings in the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ recent report that blames funding cuts to BC Ferries for robbing the B.C. economy of billions of dollars. – “Our sense of this report is it’s highly simplistic in terms of the analysis that’s been done,” he told CBC News on Friday. – “The assumptions that have been made that kind of underpin the findings of this report are so massively overstated that you could drive a ferry through them. – “It’s far too simplistic to suggest that just because someone may not have taken a ferry, they didn’t spend money in B.C. in some other facet.”  – ”  —djo— }
