ISIS Twitter Accounts Traced to… UK Government Computers

In a move that will surely conjure fumbled narratives and cheeky excuses from the rouge British government, four young hackers have traced at least three ISIS Twitter accounts to the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), based out of London. The group calls themselves VandaSec traced several online-jihadi accounts via their IP addresses (an IP address is an identification number for computers of all types) at first, to Saudi Arabia. Later, upon deeper digging the hackers unearthed information linking these accounts directly to British government computers based out of the DWP. Sure enough after the news broke British officials responded by stating the IP addresses were sold as part of a much larger ‘bulk sale’ to Saudi Arabian based telecoms companies. “We think carefully about which companies we sell addresses to, but how their customers use this internet connection is beyond our control.” A Cabinet Official was quoted as […] Read More

1916: Never Again!

(A protest and a warning addressed to the peoples of Europe) by Edward Carpenter Never again must this Thing happen. The time has come — if the human race does not wish to destroy itself in its own madness — for men to make up their minds as to what they will do in the future; for now indeed is it true that we are come to the cross-roads, we stand at the Parting of the Ways. The rapid and enormous growth of scientific invention makes it obvious that Violence ten times more potent and sinister than that which we are witnessing to-day may very shortly be available for our use — or abuse — in War. On the other hand who can doubt that the rapid growth of interchange and understanding among the peoples of the world is daily making Warfare itself, and the barbarities inevitably connected with […] Read More

2005: Website that carried al-Qaida claim has connections to Bush family

London Guardian | July 09 2005 http://prisonplanet.com/Pages/Jul05/090705website.html The claim of responsibility for the London attacks was first posted on one of the dozens of Islamic websites that are routinely monitored by western intelligence services. The statement, under the name of the Secret Organisation of the al-Qaida Jihad in Europe, said: “The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern and western quarters.” It was posted on an Arabic website, al-qal3ah.com, which is registered by Qalaah Qalaah in Abu Dhabi and hosted by a server in Houston, Texas. But two Israeli groups devoted to exposing the network of jihadist sites claim that it is connected to the London-based Saudi dissident Saad al-Faqih. Mr Faqih, who is based in Willesden, north-west London, and runs the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia (Mira), was designated by […] Read More

UK information commissioner to examine Snowden disclosures impact

Christopher Graham asks advisers to look at encryption and other technology issues raised by Edward Snowden’s disclosures Britain’s information commissioner, Christopher Graham, has asked his expert advisers to investigate the impact of Edward Snowden’s disclosures of the spy agencies’ mass internet surveillance on the privacy of UK citizens. The information commissioner’s technology reference panel will in particular look at the privacy concerns raised by the latest disclosures on the capacity of the US National Security Agency and Britain’s spy listening centre, GCHQ, to crack commercial encryption codes, including those used in online banking. The latest disclosures revealed that the NSA is monitoring international banking and credit card transactions, including those undertaken through Visa. The NSA developed a database that held 180 million records in 2011, according to the German news magazine, Der Spiegel. Graham revealed the development at an international conference of information commissioners in Berlin amid fresh calls […] Read More

COMPUTER BIG BROTHER STATE

by Paul Baird http://www.surveillanceissues.com/article_computerstate.pdf There is no doubt that the global conquest which has been secretly carried out by the U.S based military/agency/corporate crime conglomerate would not have been possible without the vast capabilities of extremely advanced computer systems. These technologies certainly enable the U.S and its close allies to exert absolute control over many organisations and individuals including the worldwide mass media and all telecommunications networks. They thereby determine the ebb and flow of most information. Computer technology has also allowed the U.S and its allies to secretly amass space and ground-based weaponry which goes well beyond the knowledge or understanding of the general population. This equipment is used not so much on genuine enemies as it is on those innocent, concerned citizens who seek to address issues like the undue influence exercised by the crime conglomerate over global affairs; finance, politics, public opinion, weather and much more.

1993: Starlite: Too Hot to Handle

Too hot to handle In April 1993, the defence magazine Jane’s International Defence Review announced the discovery by a British amateur inventor, Maurice Ward, of a thin plastic coating able to withstand temperatures of 2,700 degrees Centigrade The reason why it was a defence magazine who first published news of This revolutionary invention is that the coating is so resistant to heat that it can make tanks, ships and aircraft impervious to the effects of nuclear weapons at quite close range — and hence is of great interest to the military mind. A little later that year the whole nation had an opportunity to see for themselves the effectiveness of Maurice Ward’s new paint on BBC Television when it was featured on “Tomorrow’s World“. Presenter Michael Rodd showed viewers an ordinary chicken’s egg that had been painted with the new coating. The paint was so thin it was not […] Read More

2006: MI6 Are The Lords Of The Global Drug Trade

Commentary By James Casbolt Former MI6 Agent c. 2006 James Casbolt* ** ** It may be a revelation to many people that the global drug trade is controlled and run by the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme. As intelligence insiders know MI5 and MI6 control many of the other intelligence agencies in the world (CIA, MOSSAD etc) in a vast web of intrigue and corruption that has its global power base in the city of London, the square mile. My name is James Casbolt and I worked for MI6 in ‘black ops’ cocaine trafficking with the IRA and MOSSAD in London and Brighton between 1995 and 1999. My father Peter Casbolt was also MI6 and worked with the CIA and mafia in Rome, trafficking cocaine into Britain. My experience was that the distinctions of all these groups became blurred until in the end […] Read More

2008: In our ever-growing surveillance society, the average Briton is being recorded 3,000 times a week.

In our ever-growing surveillance society, the average Briton is being recorded 3,000 times a week. Richard Gray reports. 17 Aug 2008 In many cases information is kept by companies such as banks and shops, but in certain circumstances they can be asked to hand it over to a range of legal authorities With every telephone call, swipe of a card and click of a mouse, information is being recorded, compiled and stored about Britain’s citizens. An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has now uncovered just how much personal data is being collected about individuals by the Government, law enforcement agencies and private companies each day. In one week, the average person living in Britain has 3,254 pieces of personal information stored about him or her, most of which is kept in databases for years and in some cases indefinitely. The data include details about shopping habits, mobile phone use, […] Read More

The English-speaking race would have been reorganised as a unit, with its central Parliament meeting alternately in New York and London, and it would have given peace to the world. – Cecil Rhodes, July 19011 At the end of the 19th century the British Empire was the largest the world had ever seen, covering some 19 million square kilometres of territory and nearly a quarter of the world’s population. Britain was also the pre-eminent global power, possessing the strongest navy in the world and the largest merchant fleet […] Read More
