Two 12-year-old girls stab friend 19 times to appease ‘Slenderman’, a fictitious character

‘Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, two 12-year-old girls, are behind bars after stabbing their friend to appease a fictitious Internet character, the Slenderman, who appears on the website creepypasta.wikia.com in various short stories…

… One of the girls told police the character is the “leader” of Creepypasta, and in the hierarchy of that world, one must kill to prove dedication, the Journal Sentinel reported. After the slaying, the girls planned to run away to the demon’s mansion in the Nicolet National Forest in Wisconsin, the complaint said.

One girl said she sees him in her dreams. She said he can read her mind and teleport.’

‘The elder brother of a school girl accused of brutally stabbing a classmate to pay homage to an eerie horror story character has said his little sister could not tell the difference between, ‘dreams and reality’.

Anissa Weier and her friend Morgan Geyser, both 12, apparently lured their young victim to a woodland area in their home town of Waukesha, Wisconsin and stabbed her 19 times before leaving her to die.

They both told police they committed the horrendous crime because they wanted to impress a ghoulish fantasy character called Slender Man, who they had become obsessed with after reading a string of scary stories online.’

The vastness of unaccountable concentration of private power is no more apparent than with latest technology used to monitor the public in their every day movements.

Technology the public don’t have and as corporate power owns and hoards hundreds of thousands of acres of land, hoards equally as much property, they will always get the best positions too monitor the public or usage of highly evolved technology, gain access no matter where they are positioned.

To say it undermines their freedom of expression to take photographs, or monitor their product, laptop, video communications is one thing, but the public own their own right to privacy which shouldn’t be violated?

Where is the boundary of private corporations listening in to private conversations and the privacy violation if corporations have the freedom to explore as we do?

Do corporations have a legal right to track your car? If you think that is a purely academic question, think again. Working with groups like the American Civil Liberties Union, states are considering laws to prevent private companies from continuing to mass photograph license plates.

This is one of the backlashes to the news about mass surveillance. However, this backlash is now facing legal pushback from the corporations that take the photographs and then sell the data gleaned from the images.

In a lawsuit against the state of Utah, Digital Recognition Network, Inc. and Vigilant Solutions are attempting to appropriate the ACLU’s own pro-free speech arguments for themselves. They argue that a recent Utah law banning them from using automated cameras to collect images, locations and times of license plates is a violation of their own free speech rights. Indeed, in an interview, DRN’s counsel Michael Carvin defends this practice by noting, “Everyone has a First Amendment right to take these photographs and disseminate this information.”

He argues that a license plate is an inherently public piece of information.

“The only purpose of license plate information is to identify a vehicle to members of the public,” he says. “The government has no problem with people taking pictures of license plates in a particular location. But for some irrational reason it has a problem with people taking high speed photographs of those license plates.”

‘WhatsApp’ Lets Facebook Spy, Track, Record, Invade, & Monitor EVERYTHING You Do

‘WhatsApp’ Lets Facebook Spy, Track, Record, Invade, & Monitor EVERYTHING You Do

Remember Facebook’s founder and CEO Owner Mark Zuckerberg mocking his naive users and calling them “dumb fucks” for “trusting” him? Now it’s getting even better as a popular application which ‘Facebook recently acquired allows the corporation a vast number of liberties via the users iphone. WhatsApp was in the news on Saturday February 23 because the service went down for over five hours. At the very same time, there was a massive drug bust in Mexico, with an alleged drug kingpin being captured in a joint U.S./Mexico law enforcement operation. I am not certain that Facebook purposely turned off whatsApp to thwart the suspect’s use of the app during the arrest, but the timing is certainly suspicious.

Nevertheless, I had installed WhatsApp [whatsapp.com] onto my phone some time back, before Facebook purchased it, and when the WhatsApp service was down Saturday, I went on my phone to look for more information about it to try and solve the problem.

That is when I came across the PERMISSIONS listed on the application index.’

To fight and stand against corrupt, over powered, tyrannical and mafia style corporations who steal our information they have no right too, is to fight against totalitarianism in all it’s ruthless splendour.

The embryo to ‘World Government’ must log all information about us, to use against us and we do not give them our consent or our permission to warrantless invasions into our private worlds for their selfish gains.

We will not allow the standardisation of oppression to enter our homes, our private lives to satisfy the sadistic satisfaction of psychopathic corporate minded power heads, paranoid and aggressive to control us.

We will not stand by and allow the criminalisation of democracy.

We will not watch democracy die in the hands of tyrannical ruling elites.

We will stop the concentration of psychopaths using cyber crime who electronically invade into our communications and halt the hacking industry of the innocent.

‘Tens of thousands of people and organisations were participating in a protest against the NSA’s mass surveillance on Tuesday, bombarding members of Congress with phone calls and emails and holding demonstrations across the globe.

Dubbed “The day we fight back”, the action saw scores of websites, including Reddit, BoingBoing and Mozilla host a widget inviting users to pressure elected officials.

The online demonstration saw more than 18,000 calls placed and 50,000 emails sent to US congressmen and women by midday Tuesday. Physical protests were planned in 15 countries.

“The goal of the day we fight back is to stop mass surveillance by intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency,” said Rainey Reitman, activism director at the non-profit Electronic Frontier Foundation, which helped organise the events.’

Soros To Fund Free Wi-fi From Space – Blasting Whole Planet

‘You might think you have to pay through the nose at the moment to access the Internet.

But one ambitious organisation called the Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF) is planning to turn the age of online computing on its head by giving free web access to every person on Earth.

Known as Outernet, MDIF plans to launch hundreds of satellites into orbit by 2015.

And they say the project could provide unrestricted Internet access to countries where their web access is censored, including China and North Korea.’

NSA Are Watching Us – The NSA Is Spying On Everything, On All Your Digital Communications. ‘They’re Collecting Content Word for Word’

The NSA Is Spying On Everything, On All Your Digital Communications. ‘They’re Collecting Content Word for Word’

‘The NSA’s spying on everyone’s metadata can tell them just about everything about us … and it violates our Constitutional right to freedom of association.

But people are getting distracted from the big picture by focusing on metadata.

As security expert Bruce Schneier wrote yesterday:

What frustrates me about all of this — [the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board] report, the president’s speech, and so many other things — is that they focus on the bulk collection of cell phone call records. There’s so much more bulk collection going on — phone calls, e-mails, address books, buddy lists, text messages, cell phone location data, financial documents, calendars, [smartphone apps] etc. — and we really need legislation and court opinions on it all. But because cell phone call records were the first disclosure, they’re what gets the attention.’

Edward Snowden – Minister for secrecy: Transport Secretary suppresses damning report into HS2 with same veto that kept Iraq war papers secret

Minister for secrecy: Transport Secretary suppresses damning report into HS2 with same veto that kept Iraq war papers secret

‘A key report into whether the HS2 rail line would give value for money is being kept secret by the Government.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin told Parliament he is using emergency powers to veto publication of the report that says HS2 is in danger of failing. He said that protecting the impartiality of civil servants’ secret advice to ministers has to take priority over disclosure to the public.

But HS2 protesters branded the gagging order an ‘absolutely ­disgraceful’ delaying tactic.’

Employees have a moral obligation to protect their fellow human beings. It is a criminal act by itself to allow a corrupt corporation or military or governmental institute of some kind and turn a blind eye to it.

HESNOTYOURDAD

We witness the unleashing of a unapologetic repression of critical thought, and when an ordinary man or woman speaks out against criminal activity a corporation may be guilty of, and that the public have a right to know, is shut down, we know the decapitation is beginning.

‘President Obama claims the right to extrajudicially execute American citizens, keeps a so-called “kill list,” and has bragged he’s “really good at killing people.” This isn’t bluster. Obama has backed this up with action, having killed U.S. citizens — including a 16-year-old boy – without charging, much less convicting, any of them with a single crime.

The implications are profound (and profoundly disturbing), and raise questions about Americans’ constitutional right to due process, the most basic constraints on presidential power, and our treatment of whistleblowers. Indeed, how can anyone expect those who witness executive-branch crimes to blow the whistle when the head of the executive branch asserts the right to instantly execute anyone he pleases at any time?’

FBI able to secretly turn on laptop cameras without triggering indicator light ‘for several years’

‘In a recent report by The Washington Post, it was revealed that the FBI has been able to secretly activate a target’s laptop camera “without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording” for several years. While this may be surprising to some, it really shouldn’t be. Previous reports revealed that the FBI employs hackers to create software to remotely activate the microphones on laptops and cell phones as well as cameras. The U.S. government has also become the world’s largest buyer of malware. The NSA also recommended physically removing the webcam from Apple laptops for security reasons.

In August, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI has developed hacking tools like this for over a decade, though they rarely are discussed publicly.’
