Millitary Technology used by Suspect Police To Spy

Military surveillance technology “Dirt Boxes” that can intercept data, calls and text messages from hundreds of mobile phones simultaneously, as well as jam transmissions from a device, according to documents obtained, are being used by USA Police and in the balance of probabilities Australian police.

stingray-2StingRay is a radio interception device that, when deployed, forces mobile phones in a given area to connect to it instead of a legitimate communications tower. A computer attached to a StingRay allows investigators access to a trove of data from intercepted mobile phones, including call and messaging logs, geolocation data and handset information.

KingFish is a less-expensive, more-portable version of a StingRay. Some records indicate that, while a StingRay is intended to be mounted in and controlled from a vehicle, a KingFish can be remotely controlled and even be worn by its user.

The StingRay and KingFish manufactured by Hariis Corporation are sold as part of a larger surveillance kit that includes third-party software designed by Pen-Link, a company that makes programs for cellphone forensics, .and laptops by Dell and Panasonic.

Whistleblower like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden alerting us to government spooks spying on citizens that is a violation of the freeworld, now we have police services that are far from squeaky clean, unaccountable, and riddled with corruption availing themselves of technology to spy without consequence.

Internet Interception flow chart

With knowledge that in Western Australia a person suspected police were illegal spying and he set in place a network of sophisticated traps to confirm or refute suspicions – all 10 traps were sprung confirming illegal spying. The bonus was uncovering compliant well known internet provider colluding backdoor information to WA Police that will be revealed soon after the lines of red-herrings being planted across Western Australia no longer is entertains.

If enforcers are illegally or legally harvesting people’s emails and SMS messages, the information is illegible if encrypted. So why have you not been encrypting?

  • For messaging from PC,MAC, Tablet, or Smart-phones, the answer is a tidy high security free APP that is simple to use “wickr” (download www.wickr.com )  that works like a personal sms platform encrypting automatically every transmission and leaves no meta file footprints. You can set it to hold messages from one minute to one week before shredding. It also can send pictures and files. 
  • Email encryption has until now been somewhat complicated for the average user. A Switzerland based email very high encrypting service called ProtonMail really has big brother locked out offering this service FREE, and again like Wickr it removes all metadata foot prints from transmissions. It is web-based (like Gmail and Hotmail but without any backdoor access to big brother) and capable of dealing with unencrypted mail or the option of sending encrypted mail to recipients that do not have protonmail service. There is a qualifying period to obtain an account that takes up to a month depending when server space becomes available – www.protonmail.com. 

With our Australian government, led by the Attorney General George Brandis, are introducing legislation for meta data retention by your internet service provider to hold for seven years, a process now abandoned by the rest of the world reflecting just how far out of touch our government is with spying techniques. These user friendly personal security tools for your email and messaging lock out big-brother and any prying eyes and the threat of identity theft.

Start using Wickr and register for protonmail today, then engage family, business associates, and friends to protect their personal space with you online.

Russia Ukraine & the Rest

USA war machineIf ever there was proof just how western neo-cons and war mongers of the USA push for change in the governments of sovereign countries; this story tells it and tells who is at the top of the pile.

History may well hold President Obama high in esteem for his ability to stand against those in the political and military power of the USA; those who see the need to wage war where perhaps they should never be.

  • Regime change in Syria would see Russia’s small Mediterranean naval base gone.
  • Regime change in Ukraine would see the huge Russian Sebastopol naval base in Crimea gone.
  • Denigration and blustering against Iran sees another Russian friend put under pressure and assuredly regime change there is a USA goal for the same reasons.

As Europe – hence the European Union – has expanded and the USSR – now just Russia – has been decimated geopolitically & Geographically, NATO has never let up on the pressures being applied to remaining Soviet borders.  This may be a good thing in some minds, but at some time there comes a need to call enough as being enough.

eu_countries_europeThere can be little doubt of a need for Russia to remain a strong independent nation.  It is a nation rich in minerals, precious metals along with energy such as gas and oil. Europe relies on these natural commodities and in winter, not only would Europe suffer, but many, many citizens of the myriad of countries who rely on such energy for heating etc.; would die.

While the world demonises President Putin and his nation over Ukraine and perhaps culpably & falsely so over the downing of MH17; the USA is shown to have a grubby hand; yet people in general – busy with their daily lives – don’t seem to have the time to see it that way.

Ukrainian Separatists & Russia Tried & Convicted by a Kangaroo Court

Controlling Public Opinion

Controlling Public Opinion

With the Ukrainian Separatist Rebels claiming they did not have a BUK system and their leader claiming he did not  give any orders to shoot down MH17, let alone have the ability to do so; the media does not give up on apportioning blame towards Russia and the Ukrainian Separatists.

Who knows at present; maybe they did, maybe they did not, so let’s put aside the past and just consider the present outside the fog of misinformation.

As the International team make numerous attempts to gain safe access to the crash site and assess the wreckage as best as able and thereby also attempt to recover whatever missing bodies they can find; there comes a need to consider the obstacle and what the obstacle indicates.

The Ukrainian western concocted government – with Yatsenuk now resigning – seems somewhat in disarray; a situation one would have considered most unlikely given the amount of western overt support they seemed to have garnered since the crash.

Yet it is the Ukrainian forces pushing the civil war to a point where the International teams are no longer safe to get entry to the downed aircraft’s site.  If Ukraine were serious about seeing all the bellicose rhetoric they have spewed in the direction of the Ukrainian Separatist’s – rhetoric they espouse as facts re the downing of MH17 – then their current actions perhaps speak volumes about their real intentions whilst hidden behind the fog.

All it would require to satisfy International desires is for the Ukrainian Government forces to have halted their military where they were for the duration – ceased their continuing bullet firing military push – and let the inquiry teams in to do their work matter solved.  The Ukrainian Separatists are not against letting the teams in and onsite; they are against allowing spies and enemy advances to gain a military advantage through the processes; an advantage which may well give their enemy an additional foot hold against them; almost just as has happened.

It is quite clear to any lateral thinking person; the Ukrainian forces are equally if not more so the ones ensuring the evidence as is left, deteriorates to such a point little forensic evidence of real good is able to be located.  Why?

thinking pic re revolutionBecause it is just as reasonable to suspect a unit of the Ukrainian Government forces were the ones who fired off the missile/s. Even USA’s own Intelligence appears to lend some credence to this consideration; albeit, the subsequent spin to defuse this evidence was as swift as it was laughable.  A spin which grows by the day with all sorts of intelligence claims, yet with little if any evidence of substance and credibility being made available.

As the evidence may well point at the Ukrainian forces as much as the Ukrainian Separatists being the shooters of MH17; there comes perhaps a need to ensure little, if any real evidence remains and time here is the ally to this goal.

The public opinion against the Ukrainian Separatists is such that if the Ukrainian Military can forestall the investigation and hence degrade the evidence beyond useless, that media contrived public opinion may well be the driving force giving what skimpy and perhaps contrived evidence being left, any credibility in people’s minds; and that opinion at this point has been carefully massaged to be all against the rebels, Putin and Russia.

Mainstream media cannot help themselves making statements which apportion dedicated blame; yet the evidence – real indisputable evidence – to support those statements does not exist; not yet.

It is noticeable the envoys and government spokespeople of all nations except the USA are very careful in their choice of words when publicly speaking of the downing.  Yet the media are not so circumspect and go so far as to constantly barrage the wider western world’s public with language which should really frighten us all.  The media have become a Kangaroo Court; bestowing upon themselves the office of judge, jury and executioner of the Ukrainian Separatists, President Putin and Russia combined.

Why ever would the world beyond the western powers ever believe in the democracy the west so vehemently tries to foist upon those not so governed; when all they see is deceit and bullying through power and might, whilst allowing the most powerful tool of all; the misuse of a biased western mainstream media to indoctrinate the wider globe’s western public.

Worldwar3In the modern world of the Internet; western law tries to recognise: should information published affect the outcome of a trial, or defame an individual or an entity – regardless of borders – then that publishing may be held legally responsible and accountable.  Who is going to take to task and hold a wild and out of control media responsible and accountable for such transgressions; transgressions which could indirectly lead to wider local, or global conflict?

Has the sad downing of MH17 just become a tool for western politics and a US led NATO push against an old foe – Russia with a wider view of encircling China?

The Mafia wash money: The NSA & Co wash information.

NCA-eye

With SOS-NEWS continuing coverage of the Edward Snowden NSA releases; in early December 2013  I made the following analysis that;

Further; while the NSA tell Americans it does not disseminate that found on its own subjects, who stops the Australians spying on the English; the English on the Americans and the New Zealanders on the Canadians etc?  Then such collected information is passed covertly on to the home countries and all safe-guards potentially become negated.

william binneyNow the truth in support of that analysis is starting to permeate down and out to the lowliest of us and it is coming from places and people who although themselves were once emboldened by unfettered power; see the error – hence fear – of the ways the great western eagle of democracy is and has slid to. William E Binney (pictured) is such a man being so out-spoken.

Note; the five eyes program refers directly to Australia as it does, New Zealand, Canada, England and the United States. Echelon was just the beginning.  Were the Kiwi farmers so misguided after all?

Crimean Democratic Rights Sunday: By The People for the People

obarma-puttin-1

The Obama Putin Showdown at Ukraine’s Expense

Slowly Angela Merkel becomes more hard lined towards her great neighbour Russia, or is that foe as ex German Chancellor Schroeder speaks up for Putin.  Germany is being sucked into a US provoked NATO vortex; “You’re either with us, or against us.”

The west is portrayed as one and uniform in its response to the calamity which has torn asunder politically and terroristically, “my word”   the nation called Ukraine; that very same West, portrays the President of Russia as the problem; the cause of all Ukraine’s current woes.

Perhaps the truth is not so simple yet far more logical than the propaganda flowing from those who see the westernisation of Ukraine through right wing terrorism effecting a violent coup d’etat which routed a duly and democratically elected leader, as the only truth; their truth.

We now all know Russia has a historical naval base by legal treaty established in Sevastopol, Crimea; which is paramount to that nation’s ability to project itself about the Black Sea area of influence and into and out of, the Mediterranean.  This Russia sees as crucial for its own well-being; something they may well be prepared to go to war for and possibly against all odds.

We also know that through centuries of turbulent history, many people of Ukraine are indeed ethnic Russian, or see themselves as such; speaking Russian willingly as their first language.

Many Eastern Ukrainians are such Russian speaking people with the majority of current Ukrainian citizens living in the autonomous region of the Crimean Peninsula, vehemently standing publicly as more ‘Russian’, than Ukrainian.

With the breakdown of civil order through the violent attacks on the nation’s capital Kiev; it is not unreasonable to see how Russia believed they were being squeezed by a political move orchestrated by the United States and NATO’s expansionism desires. An expansionism where not only was Russia to lose one of its last secure and significant remaining naval bases outside of the Baltic sea; but NATO would be in a position to militarily enhance the threat to another 2,200 kilometres of direct border with Russia; where it has never had the capacity to do so in previous history.

Putin – no matter what you think of him as a man – appears to have done what any sane and patriotic Russian leader would for his people. He declared by actions to Ukraine and the world; enough is enough.

He allowed his troops to control predominately Russian, Crimea’s defences – keeping in mind Russia is allowed legally to have 25,000 boots on soil in the Peninsula; by treaty. He has also given the citizens of this autonomous region of Ukraine, the democratic right to be heard and listened to via a referendum; the right to decide for themselves where their allegiance lies and who they should allow to take hold of theirs and their land’s destiny.

This happens this Sunday the 16th of March 2014.

  • President Putin has sworn to the world he will honour the outcome of the ensuing referendum.
  • President Obama has vowed reprisals for allowing such democratic processes to occur.

The west; The United States and NATO; The European UNION and the Ukrainian rebel Coup de’tat perpetrators, all know the winds blow in Russia’s favour.

Russia senses that war is a flint strike away.  The unpredictable attitude of the Ukrainian right wingers of whom some have depicted as neo Nazi like forces, would indeed feel empowered to strike at Putin’s defences in Crimea when the vote on Sunday may well end in the call for a Crimean Peninsula secession to Russia.  It is this very fact and reasoning President Putin has placed a large military force inside his Russian borders aligning with Ukraine’s.

This military might negates the ability of falsely and foolishly empowered, unconstitutionally placed, government leaders under the command of Yatsenyuk to move the Ukrainian forces towards Crimea.  If he does; he risks leaving northern Ukraine exposed, vulnerable and depleted of defences.

In a game where only the Ukraine and Russian Crimea were the players; it is check mate for Yatsenyuk.  The very tactics the US and the UN should have deployed against Iraq.  Not even Saddam would have gone to battle against such an assured demise; not if there was an alternative.

obarma-1 Sadly, the scary piece in play; is the fear Unconstitutional Ukrainian leader Yatsenyuk will be emboldened whilst being tricked, into leading his nation to war with Russia on the understanding US backed NATO will come to his aid.

Why so scary:

A)     The Ukrainian defences will be pulverised unnecessarily before any real and threatening response will have effect.

B)      Europe via NATO will have to consider military response in Ukrainian defence as subtly eluded to by Kerry and Obama and most likely promised behind closed doors to Yatsenyuk.

C)      United States has a past history of promising protection to those tricked into following US policy; but reneging when it comes time for the US to live up to that promise

D)     Economies will collapse: European nations’; Russia’s; China’s and many indirectly will be financially affected from this fiscal fallout.

E)       Then god forbid; the real possibility of nuclear war.  Keep in mind, modern artillery now have the capability of firing mini nuclear-bomb shells.

In simple terms; go in search of one war, one insurgency where the US didn’t shoot bullets to get its way.  At least as this Ukrainian fiasco unfolds, President Putin has yes; mobilised military might; but no, no shots in anger have as yet been fired; more a credit to both facing off armies perhaps than politicians.

When the Maidan riots were in full swing and the square’s building’s now seen as a burnt out structures were held by the terrorist led rioters of the street; Yanukovych’s authorities breached the 8th floor of an occupied building through the wall of an adjoining structure and were able to clear the upper floors down to the 6th level, where there, these authorities were stopped by the flames of the lower floors having been turned into a fiery conflagration by those in the streets. To give credence to the depths of violence each side was or was not committing; when the forces purged the upper floors of this building, they only used CS gas and stun grenades.  No deadly force.

This is not the act of a desperate and callous leader or his army who care little for its people, but more so of an effort to restore order – as would be expected – by and in, any democratic arena. Yet as Yanukovych and his government were apparently falsely being deemed the Ukrainian murderous anti-Christs, it appears to have slipped from main stream reporting there is sound anecdotal evidence those killed – both police and protestors – in the streets by sniper fire were in fact the acts of the terrorist’s themselves.

It is the Yatsenyuk side who keep saying Ukraine gave up its – purloined via the USSR split – nuclear weapons on the promise NATO would be its protector.  Here is a shuddering insight into the thought processes and string pulling of the currently installed undemocratic regime.  Would they threaten the use of such weapons if they still controlled them.  The words say, and inferences say, yes!

obarma-puttin-2The US bolsters jet fighter strength in surrounding countries whilst maintaining an increased naval presence in the Black Sea.  If the world; if NATO; call Putin a rat and corner him, do not be surprised that that rat bites back.  It is just a rat protecting its own territory.

Edward Snowden is deemed a traitor; but by whom?

snowden-chartIt is quite evident who that whom is. It is not  you or I of the billions spread across the globe; rather it is those who seek unfettered global power.  Where information is power, the Western world’s spook force has become a power within itself.  So much so, those who head these organisations feel no threat from lying to their oversight committees whilst holding no conscience in respect to the laws they break; they just use rhetoric which to any mere dispensable mortal would attract a contempt charge and all that which goes with such transgressions.

This new world order hierarchy is frantic to defuse the openness Mr Snowden has so courageously – with huge self-sacrifice – revealed to the world.

More importantly; as each new revelation from the Snowden files is made public; it becomes so much the clearer as to why the NSA, GHCQ and all the intelligence minions – like Australia Canada and New Zealand – hanging onto these two’s coat-tails, were apoplectic when he first broke cover.  They all knew that what Snowden was now capable of; was blowing the lid off population-control and management on a global scale not even deemed possible by the majority of the world’s citizens; let alone actually well and truly already in action.  More importantly; never with the permission of each participating nation’s respective populous; knowing full well such permission sought would never be given; ever.

Is it time to return to sending messages hand written by the old postal system, or hand delivered courier; unsigned and posted from a point of origin far away? Maybe!

Just a snippet of the latest release by those Snowden – with great fore-sight – entrusted to vet his document hoard and bring to us all.

·         An implant plug-in named CAPTIVATEDAUDIENCE, for example, is used to take over a targeted computer’s microphone and record conversations taking place near the device.

·         Another, GUMFISH, can covertly take over a computer’s webcam and snap photographs.

·         FOGGYBOTTOM records logs of Internet browsing histories and collects login details and passwords used to access websites and email accounts.

·         GROK is used to log keystrokes.

·         SALVAGERABBIT exfiltrates data from removable flash drives that connect to an infected computer.

The link to the latest release is here below.  Read slowly and carefully.  Understand what is being made aware to you.  Discuss this with your friends and family. Send the story on.  Look beyond the necessary intelligence needs of a nation’s safety and consider for yourself if privacy is a necessary pre-requisite for your home?  If it is; believe this; you don’t have it, and your little computer is just as important to be compromised by the NSA & Co; as is the multi-national firms’, you work for.

Internet privacy as important as human rights, says UN’s Navi Pillay

The UN human rights chief, Navi Pillay, has compared the uproar in the international community caused by revelations of mass surveillance with the collective response that helped bring down the apartheid regime in South Africa.

Pillay, the first non-white woman to serve as a high-court judge in South Africa, made the comments in an interview with Sir Tim Berners-Lee on a special edition of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, which the inventor of the world wide web was guest editing.

Pillay has been asked by the UN to prepare a report on protection of the right to privacy, in the wake of the former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden leaking classified documents about UK and US spying and the collection of personal data.

Spy vs Spy on your privacy

The former international criminal court judge said her encounters with serious human rights abuses, which included serving on the Rwanda tribunal, did not make her take online privacy less seriously. “I don’t grade human rights,” she said. “I feel I have to look after and promote the rights of all persons. I’m not put off by the lifetime experience of violations I have seen.”

She said apartheid ended in South Africa principally because the international community co-operated to denounce it, adding: “Combined and collective action by everybody can end serious violations of human rights … That experience inspires me to go on and address the issue of internet [privacy], which right now is extremely troubling because the revelations of surveillance have implications for human rights … People are really afraid that all their personal details are being used in violation of traditional national protections.”

The UN general assembly unanimously voted last week to adopt a resolution, introduced by Germany and Brazil, stating that “the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online, including the right to privacy”. Brazil’s president, Dilma Rousseff, and the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, were among those spied on, according to the documents leaked by Snowden.

The resolution called on the 193 UN member states “to review their procedures, practices and legislation regarding the surveillance of communications, their interception and collection of personal data, with a view to upholding the right to privacy of all their obligations under international human rights law”. It also directed Pillay to publish a report on the protection and promotion of privacy “in the context of domestic and extraterritorial surveillance … including on a mass scale”. She told Berners-Lee it was “very important that governments now want to discuss the matters of mass surveillance and right to privacy in a serious way”.

Berners-Lee has warned that online surveillance undermines confidence in the internet, and last week published an open letter, with more than 100 free speech groups and leading activists, to protest against the routine interception of data by governments around the world.

More Leaks from Snowden Exposing GCHQ & NSA Spying

The world thanks you Edward Snowden

The world thanks you Edward Snowden

British and American intelligence agencies had a comprehensive list of surveillance targets that included the EU’s competition commissioner, German government buildings in Berlin and overseas, and the heads of institutions that provide humanitarian and financial help to Africa, top-secret documents reveal.

The papers show GCHQ, in collaboration with America’s National Security Agency (NSA), was targeting organisations such as the United Nations development programme, the UN’s children’s charity Unicef and Médecins du Monde, a French organisation that provides doctors and medical volunteers to conflict zones. The head of the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) also appears in the documents, along with text messages he sent to colleagues.

The latest disclosures will add to Washington’s embarrassment after the heavy criticism of the NSA when it emerged that it had been tapping the mobile phone of the German chancellor, Angela Merkel.

One GCHQ document, drafted in January 2009, makes clear that the agencies were targeting an email address listed as belonging to another important American ally – the “Israeli prime minister”. Ehud Olmert was in office at the time.

Edward Snowden’s Christmas Message

snowden-meetingEdward Snowden, the whistleblower who prompted a worldwide debate when he leaked a cache of top secret documents about US and UK spying, has recorded a Christmas Day television message in which he calls for an end to the mass surveillance revealed by his disclosures.

The short film was recorded for Channel 4, which has 20-year history of providing unusual but relevant figures as an alternative to the Queen’s Christmas message shown by other UK broadcasters. It will be Snowden’s first television appearance since arriving in Moscow.

The address, broadcast at 4.15pm on Christmas Day, was filmed in Russia – where Snowden is living after being granted temporary asylum – by Laura Poitras, a film-maker who has closely collaborated with him on the NSA stories.

Snowden said George Orwell “warned us of the danger of this kind of information” in his dystopian novel, 1984.
