  • Germany Axes Canada-EU Trade Agreement, This Will End TTIP Stitch Up Too

    We are winning. Well today we are at least. News broke over the weekend that Germany intends to junk the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP). So it looks as though the shockwave of the European Parliament elections that saw parties such as UKIP, Italy's Five Start Movement, France's front national and Alternatif fur Deutscheland ans a host of parties in smaller nations doing well at the expense of pro - integration parties has awoken politicians to the anger of voters throughout Europe with the dictatorial attitude of the EU.

  • Never Trust An Effing Technocrat

    I get sick of articles on technology wanker sites praising evil corporations like Microsoft, Google and Apple, and especially the comment threads which are full of besotted fanboys queueing to sing the praises of demonic nerds like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and the Google script kiddies.

    They say things like "The technology leaders are heroes, they have made everybody's life so much better." (Well they may have improved the lives of sad little geeks who spent all their time hunched over computers, but most people find the internet a decent way to communicate now there are fewer pubs to meet our mates in, convenient for shopping now there are so few decent shops left in the high street and a place to look at porn without exposing yourself to the risk of being seen emerging from shops with blacked out windows, carrying your purchases in a plain brown bag.

    While the internet and its many technologies have their benefits, those benefits come at a cost to our freedom and privacy. And the fanboy's favourite object of worship is actually the most evil of all technology corporations that makes money from the net.

    Apple has installed security backdoors on 600m iPhones and iPads, claims security researcher

    Apple has been accused of intentionally installing security backdoors in some 600 million iOS devices that offer surveillance-level access to data including photos, browsing history and GPS locations.

    The vulnerabilities were uncovered by security expert Jonathan Zdziarski, who presented an academic paper on the subject at a hacker conference in New York last Friday.

    Apple has issued a statement in response to the allegations saying that the company’s “diagnostic functions do not compromise user privacy and security,” but Zdziarski has responded by noting that these services “dish out data” regardless of whether the user has agreed to diagnostics.

    “There is no way to disable these mechanisms,” Zdziarski writes on his personal blog. “This makes it much harder to believe that Apple is actually telling the truth here.”

    The backdoors reportedly cover a range of hidden tools and protocols that activate with “paired” computers – machines connected to an iPhone or iPad via USB that the user has granted security access to.

    The really weird thing is that the fanboys continue to insist technology firms would never do anything like this, a year after the US and British government surveillance agencies NSA and GCHQ and all the major tachnology companied admitted allegations of covert data gathering were true.

  • Funny How A Few Days Good Weather Brings The Warmageddonists Out

    Over the past few scorching hot days I have seen several members of the alomst defunct Warmageddonist society plugging their tired, discredited old "science" and trying to claim that mathematics proves that what is observably not happening is actually happening but only scientists are clever enough to understand that.

    Hmm, is that so?

    Nobody in the Climate Modelling Community Foresaw 17 years Without Surface Warming

    Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Roy Spencer talks with James about where the missing heat has gone. Is it, as climate alarmists claim, hiding at the bottom of the oceans? "All kinds of things are theoretically possible”, says Roy.

    But not all things are very likely. Instead, Roy's research suggests that half the observed global warming can be explained more simply than by computer models, which try to pin the blame for all the warming on humans, and have famously failed to predict the pause in global warming.

    Watch the video above to learn more ...

     
     

    Now as many respected physicists including Freeman Dyson have pointed out, the "magic gas" hypothesis of back radiation warming violates the Laws of Thermodynamics*. But as far as Warmageddonist which is not required training for a PhD in the defective climate alchemy science club.

    The problem is the real scientists such as Freeman Dyson rely on empirical evidence, the Warmageddonists rely on mathematical modelling and the Mike Mann law of climate dynamics, which states "If the data does not provide the answer you want, the data must be wrong and can be ignored. Thus Mann created his notorious Hockey Schtick Graph by ignoring the Medieval Warm Period which, using such data is is available (measuing tree rings in bog oaks) showed the mean temperature was higher than it is now.

    *The author of the linked article notes; "All I want to present here is the simple proof that thermodynamics textbooks don't teach the false ideas circulating the internet about the second law of thermodynamics."

  • Latest TTIP News - Could There Be More To This Than Meets They Eye?

    Little nicky has warned you before about a couple of trade treaties currently being negotiated in secret. The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) and TTIP (Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) are, according to press releases, aimed at creating economic free trade zones between the EU and NAFTA (North Atlantic Free Trade Association which the Obama Administration is trying to extend to weld USA, Canada and Mexico into a single state in the way the EU want to merge all member states into a single federal superstate) and between the NAFTA superstate and the Pacific Rim nations.

    Really what TPP and TTIP will do is abolish democracy and free global corporations to do WTF they like as they will be empowered to ignore any national law that obstructs their business interests.

    The latest news-report from the TTIP negotiations from Inter Press Service puts it into perspective. It concerns the secret Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil:

    Trade negotiators are working to permanently block a landmark [E.U.] regulatory proposal aimed at addressing climate change.” Cary L. Biron writes there that, “Newly publicised internal documents suggest that U.S. negotiators are working to permanently block a landmark regulatory proposal in the European Union aimed at addressing climate change, and instead to force European countries to import particularly dirty forms of oil. … At issue is the mechanism by which the European Union would determine the greenhouse gas emissions of various types of oil and gas. As part of Europe’s broader climate pledges, the F[uel] Q[uality] D[irective] was revised to reduce the emissions of transport fuels by six percent by the end of the decade. In 2011, the E.U. proposed that tar sands and other unconventional [i.e., especially filthy] oils be formally characterised as having higher greenhouse gas ‘intensity’ than conventional oil, given that they require more energy to produce – 23 percent higher, according to a study for the European Commission.”

    Hmm, so yet another reason why the USA might want to make Russia a pariah state emerges.

  • Flight MH17 - This Is Very Interesting

    Found a great comment is a thread at The Daily Telegraph under a totally nutty article by a writer called Con Coughlin. In the case of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Coughlin slags off Putin as a pathological liar (wrong, Putin is a Russian leader who likes to remind us that the rest of the world plays by different rules to those the wussy west would like to impose on them.

    On top of that Coughlin seem to think that anything uttered by the war criminal and mass murderer, former rent boy, cocaine addict and wannabe Emperor Obama mudt be gospel truth even though the man has been caught out in more lies than Pinocchio.

    Take a look at the article if you are feeling masochistic.

    Here's what GreatBrithole had to say

    The video above asks the question, 'who shot down MH17?' If you're interested in the answer to that you might want to view this video -

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKKoKmUtQXE

    It's important to notice that it was uploaded on June (not July) the 18th - a month ago.

    Click the fourth icon from the right (captions) and set it to show English captions, if it doesn't already. Then fast forward to 1.06. Or view the transcript by clicking the transcript icon further down, near the video description.

    Here's the important part of the transcript (spelling errors included) -

    'Terrible things are happening. For example an incident that happened recently. Passanger plane was flying by. And Ukrainian attack aircraft hid behind it. Than he lowered his altitude a bit and droped bombs on residential sector of Semenovka town. Than he regained the altitude and hid behind the passanger plane again. Than he left. They wanted to provoke the militia to shoot at the passenger plane. There would be a global catastrophe. Civilians would have died. Than they would say that terrorists here did it. There are no terrorists here.'

    It's worth considering that it could be possible that the person who uploaded this video has tampered with the transcript yesterday/recently, or updated it somehow - I don't speak Ukrainian so I can't verify if the words match the transcript and I don't know if youtube change the upload date if the details are updated, although this page suggests that it's not easy to change video details without youtube classing it as a different, new upload -

    https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/58101?hl=en

    But regardless, it's interesting.

    Now we don't know if that is true or not but it shows the folly of Con Coughlin and many others in mainstream media who is every situation divide the players into "white hats" and "black hats".

    There are many ways of looking at everything and the sooner we try to understand that Russians, Arabs, Chinese and Africans have a very different mindset from westerners and thus view things from a different perspective, we will continue to screw up foreign relations.
