Terror attacks are ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’, claims London mayor Sadiq Khan

white-flag

From Daily Mail: The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’.

Mr. Khan told the Evening Standard: ‘It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things. That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.’

The dopey mayor...

The dopey mayor…

Mr. Khan, who was elected as Mayor in May to replace Boris Johnson, who is ironically now Britain’s Foreign Secretary, was in the United States on a business trip.  He said he had a ‘sleepless’ night on Saturday after a bomb exploded on West 23rd Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood, injuring 31 people.

Another device on 27th Street in Manhattan failed to go off and Ahmad Rahami, an Afghan-born US citizen was later arrested in New Jersey.  Mr. Rahami has been charged in relation to the New York explosion and another device that exploded harmlessly hours earlier near a race in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

After taking advice from the New York authorities it was ‘business as usual’ for Mr. Khan, who visited the 9/11 memorial and attended a New York Mets baseball game. Mr. Khan reportedly hinted that the Mets could come to London next year to play a Major League Baseball game at West Ham’s Olympic Stadium.

The other dopey mayor...

The other dopey mayor…

Mr. Khan later met with the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, as well as with Muslim community leaders, and co-wrote an editorial in the New York Times.

Mr. Khan, who was the first Muslim Mayor of a major western city when he was elected in May, Mr. de Blasio and Paris’s Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, wrote: ‘We call on world leaders to adopt a similar welcoming and collaborative spirit on behalf of the refugees all over the world. Our cities stand united in the call for inclusivity. It is part of who we are as citizens of diverse and thriving cities.’

Muslim ‘migrants’ have transformed the city of Paris into a garbage dump

Gone is our antiquated image of Paris, France as an elegant, civilized city.

Here’s a video showing how the Muslim “migrant” invasion has transformed the French capital into a literal garbage dump, with men lounging on mattresses on streets choked with litter and garbage. I recommend you watch the video in full screen to get the maximum impact.

Notice that the vagrants are all men, and not just men, but young, able-bodied, military-age males. Where are the pore Muslim women and children of the media’s propaganda?

Here’s another video — of a Muslim riot in Paris:

Meanwhile, tourism in France has plummeted. In August 2016, the French government announced that the number of tourists in the country has fallen by 7% since January. Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tourism Jean-Marc Ayrault acknowledged that “The perception of security risk has had a clear influence on certain travelers, including the wealthiest ones or those from Asia.”

While all of France is affected by the drop in tourist numbers, Paris and Ile-de-France and have been hit particularly hard. The tourism sector in Ile-de-France has lost a billion Euros in sales since January, according to a report of the Regional Tourism Committee (RTC).

But France’s socialist president François Hollande, in a speech on September 8, 2016, defended Muslims and called on his country to be “tolerant” and “embrace” Islam.

African dictator is a cannibal; eats opponents’ testicles & brain

We are in the 21st century, but the president of Equatorial Guinea is a cannibal.

equatorial-guinea-map

John Shammas reports for the UK Mirror, Sept. 11, 2016, that Teodoro Obiang Nguema, 74, has ruled over Equatorial Guinea since 1979.

Nguema came to power by overthrowing his uncle, Francisco Macias N’Guema, who had Nguema’s family murdered.

Known as “torturer-in-chief,” not only does Nguema torture and oppress his political opponents, many say his depravity goes even deeper. They claim Nguema is a cannibal who skins his opponents alive and devours their testicles and brains as a way to boost his sexual prowess.

Severo Moto, a political rival of Nguema, said in a 2004 interview with Spanish radio: “He has just devoured a police ­commissioner. I say devoured because this commissioner was buried without the testicles and the brain. [He] wants me to go back to Guinea … [so he can] eat my testicles.”

Having remained in power for almost 40 years, Nguema is said to increasingly believe himself to have God-like powers. One of his former advisors said: “He can decide to kill without anyone calling him to account and without going to hell because it is God himself, with whom he is in permanent contact and who gives him this strength.”

There are unconfirmed rumors that Nguema has prostate cancer. His son, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, 46, who serves as a vice president, would be his natural successor.

By the way, Equatorial Guinea has the lowest average IQ in the world, of 59, which means the average Equatorial Guinean is a moron (the definition of “moron” is an IQ of 51 to 70).  See “How smart or stupid is your country?

There are other African cannibal dictators, including:

  • Idi Amin, who ruled Uganda from 1971 to 1979, was reported to cannibalize the bodies of his political opponents but kept their severed heads in refrigerators. After he was deposed in 1979, he first fled to Libya, then Saudi Arabia where he lived the last few years of his life, paid $30,000 a month by the Saudis, until his death in 2003 at age 78 from kidney failure.
  • Jean-Bédel Bokassa, the leader of the Central African Republic from 1966 to 1979, was also said to be a cannibal. In 1977, emulating his hero Napoleon, he crowned himself emperor of the Central African Empire in a ceremony costing $20 million (11.8m). Overthrown by French troops in 1979, Bokassa went into exile in France where he had a château and other property bought with the money he had embezzled. He returned to the Central African Republic in 1986 and was put on trial, found guilty of the murder of schoolchildren and oher crimes, but was cleared of charges of cannibalism. His death sentence was commuted to life in solitary confinement, but was freed just six years later in 1993. In 1996 he proclaimed himself the 13th Apostle and claims to have had secret meetings with the Pope. He died of heart attack few months later.
  • Joshua Milton Blahyi, a tribal priest-turned-army leader known as General Butt Naked (for going into battle naked, believing that his nakedness protected him from bullets), led a mercenary unit during the First Liberian Civil war in 1989. (Liberia was founded in 1847 by the first “back to Africa” movement of American blacks.) Blahyi claimed he had a vision in which he was told by the Devil that he would become a great warrior and should practice human sacrifice and cannibalism to increase his power. He said in an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: “Sometimes I would enter under the water where children were playing. I would dive under the water, grab one, carry him under and break his neck. Sometimes I’d cause accidents. Sometimes I’d just slaughter them.” In January 2008 Blahyi confessed to taking part in human sacrifices which “included the killing of an innocent child and plucking out the heart, which was divided into pieces for us to eat.” In 1997, Blahyi converted to Christianity and is now the president of the End Time Train Evangelistic Ministries Inc, headquartered in Liberia. In the United States, Pastor Robert Letner Jr. founded the Trilateral Church of the South based on Blahyi’s message of redemption and forgiveness.

We recoil in horror, as we should, at these reports of African cannibalism, but what about the horrors that go on every day in Planned Parenthood clinics across the U.S., where the body parts of aborted unborn humans are sold for profit? Hmm?

Someone is learning & practicing how to take down the Internet

This is serious and genuinely alarming.

Bruce Schneier is the Chief Technology Officer of Resilient, an IBM Company, a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center, and a board member of Electronic Frontier Foundation — an organization defending our rights in the digital world.

In a blog post, Schneier sounds the alarm that in the past year, the websites of major companies that provide the Internet’s basic services repeatedly have been attacked, each time more sophisticated than the last, which suggests “someone” is practicing how to take down the Internet by learning from the companies’ defensive moves.

cyberwar

Below is Bruce Schneier’s blog post of Sept. 13, 2016, “Someone is Learning How to Take Down the Internet“:

Over the past year or two, someone has been probing the defenses of the companies that run critical pieces of the Internet. These probes take the form of precisely calibrated attacks designed to determine exactly how well these companies can defend themselves, and what would be required to take them down. We don’t know who is doing this, but it feels like a large nation state. China or Russia would be my first guesses.

First, a little background. If you want to take a network off the Internet, the easiest way to do it is with a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS). Like the name says, this is an attack designed to prevent legitimate users from getting to the site. There are subtleties, but basically it means blasting so much data at the site that it’s overwhelmed. These attacks are not new: hackers do this to sites they don’t like, and criminals have done it as a method of extortion. There is an entire industry, with an arsenal of technologies, devoted to DDoS defense. But largely it’s a matter of bandwidth. If the attacker has a bigger fire hose of data than the defender has, the attacker wins.

Recently, some of the major companies that provide the basic infrastructure that makes the Internet work have seen an increase in DDoS attacks against them. Moreover, they have seen a certain profile of attacks. These attacks are significantly larger than the ones they’re used to seeing. They last longer. They’re more sophisticated. And they look like probing. One week, the attack would start at a particular level of attack and slowly ramp up before stopping. The next week, it would start at that higher point and continue. And so on, along those lines, as if the attacker were looking for the exact point of failure.

The attacks are also configured in such a way as to see what the company’s total defenses are. There are many different ways to launch a DDoS attack. The more attack vectors you employ simultaneously, the more different defenses the defender has to counter with. These companies are seeing more attacks using three or four different vectors. This means that the companies have to use everything they’ve got to defend themselves. They can’t hold anything back. They’re forced to demonstrate their defense capabilities for the attacker.

I am unable to give details, because these companies spoke with me under condition of anonymity. But this all is consistent with what Verisign is reporting. Verisign is the registrar for many popular top-level Internet domains, like .com and .net. If it goes down, there’s a global blackout of all websites and e-mail addresses in the most common top-level domains. Every quarter, Verisign publishes a DDoS trends report. While its publication doesn’t have the level of detail I heard from the companies I spoke with, the trends are the same: “in Q2 2016, attacks continued to become more frequent, persistent, and complex.”

There’s more. One company told me about a variety of probing attacks in addition to the DDoS attacks: testing the ability to manipulate Internet addresses and routes, seeing how long it takes the defenders to respond, and so on. Someone is extensively testing the core defensive capabilities of the companies that provide critical Internet services.

Who would do this? It doesn’t seem like something an activist, criminal, or researcher would do. Profiling core infrastructure is common practice in espionage and intelligence gathering. It’s not normal for companies to do that. Furthermore, the size and scale of these probes — and especially their persistence — points to state actors. It feels like a nation’s military cybercommand trying to calibrate its weaponry in the case of cyberwar. It reminds me of the US’s Cold War program of flying high-altitude planes over the Soviet Union to force their air-defense systems to turn on, to map their capabilities.

What can we do about this? Nothing, really. We don’t know where the attacks come from. The data I see suggests China, an assessment shared by the people I spoke with. On the other hand, it’s possible to disguise the country of origin for these sorts of attacks. The NSA, which has more surveillance in the Internet backbone than everyone else combined, probably has a better idea, but unless the US decides to make an international incident over this, we won’t see any attribution.

But this is happening. And people should know.

A reader of Schneier’s blog-post, Random Guy 17, wrote this interesting comment:

“An attack on a service is best done by an attacker that doesn’t need that service. You don’t pull the plug on the power company that supplies your own home/business.

With that in mind, a closed, not highly Internet enabled country makes the most sense- like China.”

Other commenters warn that it may be the U.S. government, e.g., the NSA, doing the attacks — to find the Internet’s weaknesses (in order to better defend it), or more malevolently, as bargaining chip for more money allocated to cyber-security.

It doesn’t help that in two weeks, on October 1, control of the Internet — specifically, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — will pass from U.S. administration to a multilateral body, most likely the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

UPDATE (Sept. 20, 2016):

Rhett Jones reports for Gizmodo, Sept. 11, 2016, that two 18-year-old Israelis — Itay Huri and Yarden Bidani —  have been arrested “in connection with an FBI investigation into vDOS, a cyberattack service that has been credited with perpetrating ‘a majority’ of the DDoS attacks over the last few years.

The following evidence pointed to the Huri and Bidani as the perpetrators:

  1.  Their vDOS service refused to attack Israeli sites in their “home country”.
  2. vDOS was hosted on a server that was traced back to Huri.
  3. SMS notifications pointed to both men.
  4. Huri and Bidani had co-authored a technical paper about DDoS attacks that was published in Israeli security magazine Digitals Whispers.

According to security blogger Brian Krebs, the vDOS site has reportedly raked in $618,000 (£465,835) for its services in two years.

According to Israeli news site The Marker, both men were arrested, then released on $10,000 bonds and placed under house arrest. Their passports have been taken away and they are forbidden from accessing the internet or any other telecommunications equipment for 30 days. It’s unclear if the two men will be extradited to the U.S and formally charged.

It is also unclear if Huri and Bidani are the perpetrators of the increasingly sophisticated DDoS attacks addressed in this post.

Chicago police solving fewer killings than other cities

chicago

From Fox News: Chicago police are solving homicides at a far lower rate than their counterparts in some other major cities, which may reflect how hard it is for detectives to crack the culture of silence surrounding the violence committed by the city’s street gangs.

Of the 432 homicides committed between January 1 and August 16 of this year, the department has solved 92, or 21 percent of them, the Chicago Tribune reported.

When homicides committed in all years are added in, the department says the clearance rate is about 30 percent. But even that figure is lower than the 49 percent clearance rate in Philadelphia and 56 percent clearance rate in Houston, which ranks just behind Chicago in terms of population size.

Experts say one reason so few are solved is that, as police have long said, so many are related to gangs in the poor neighborhoods where most of the shootings occur. They say witnesses who live in these neighborhoods are afraid to come forward out of fear of retaliation and a gang culture in which gang members have been historically unwilling to cooperate with police.

Others say that manpower on the police force may be a factor. “Homicides have gone up and the number of shootings has gone up; and the number of detectives has gone down,” said Fraternal Order of Police President Dean Angelo.

In fact, the FOP says the number of detectives has dwindled from 1,151 in 2009 to 863 as of July. Not only that, the union says the number of evidence technicians, whose job is crucial to investigations, has dropped from 113 to 84 over that span.

This comes amid a sharp spike in the number of homicides and shootings this year.

Insane: ‘Comedian’ Bill Maher says he would vote for a dead Hillary

There’s a joke that liberalism is a mental disorder.

Except that the joke is true, certainly in the case of the so-called comedian (I’d never found him funny), Bill Maher, who publicly declared he would vote for a corpse to be POTUS.

bill-maher

Daniel Nussbaum reports for Breitbart, Sept. 13, 2016, that after a citizen’s video of Hillary Clinton collapsing at last Sunday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony publicly exposed her ill health that’s long been reported by the Alternative Media but actively suppressed by the MSM, HBO talk show host Bill Maher tweeted that he would rather vote for a “dead” Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Maher dismissed Hillary’s reported “pneumonia” and said even if Hillary were “Patient Zero for Bubonic Plague,” she’d still be better than Trump, the “TangerineNightmare.” Below is Maher’s tweet:

bill-maher-tweet

But Maher isn’t just insane, he’s also vicious and homicidal.

The day before Hillary’s collapse, during a stand-up performance in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, Sept. 10, Maher suggested that Trump be assassinated because the race between Clinton and Trump is “tightening,” so somebody “is going to have to go out there” and remedy the situation, like what John Hinckley Jr. did to President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

Maher told the audience at the DAR Constitution Hall:

“I’m nervous with this election. Race tightening, Trump ahead in Ohio and Florida. If this race is even the week before the election, somebody is going to have to go out there…. Why do you think they let Hinckley out?”

Earlier, on March 4, 2016, Maher actually compared Trump, who has not killed or even assaulted anyone, to Nazi German leader Adolf Hitler who exterminated millions of innocent people — Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and the handicapped — as well as provoked the Second World War that took the lives of 72 million people worldwide.

Prominent Russian TV host and journalist Dmitry Kisiliov just warned that the “merciless” American establishment “may kill” Trump because of his desire to build better relations with Moscow.
