Sound the alarm…
Facebook’s ‘anti-fake news’ plan looks like effort to curb alternative media

Yet, a cursory glance at its funding sources is enough to set alarm bells ringing. They include Pierre Omidyar, George Soros and Washington’s National Endowment for Democracy, a CIA soft-power cutout. As it happens, regular RT readers will remember these three as the primary foreign backers of Ukraine’s Maidan coup in 2014.

Man jailed for 33 months for pirating ‘Fast & Furious’

Universal Picture’s fuzzy math comes into the equation when estimating how much they allegedly “lost,” or in the real world, never had in the first place. 

I certainly wouldn’t watch FF6 if I had to pay anything for it. They might need to pay me, and I have a Paypal account, if the studio is interested in sweetening the deal. I have the feeling that many who watched it weren’t going to pay them anything either. Fast and Furious 6? Are you shitting me?

I thought Five was masterpiece enough…

Tony Cartalucci sorts out grotesque double-standards when the regime being protested is a US client state puppet (Thailand) vs. when the regime is a US targeted enemy (Ukraine).
A Tale of Two Protests: Ukraine & Thailand

Bonus hypocrisy from the US State Dept. itself:

“We urge Ukraine’s leaders to respect their people’s right to freedom of expression and assembly…

We call on the Government of Ukraine to foster a positive environment for civil society…

Violence and intimidation of protesters holds a near and dear place in the United States itself though.  Are memories that short over at the State Department?

Much concern for the Ukrainian protesters — a large chunk of whom are neonazis, apparently, and many others are “color revolution” stooges of western imperial meddling, in other words: On The Payroll.   This is the same old story, and the US media is always complicit in selling Uncle Sam’s self-interested tall tales to the rubes.

 

39.siJustin Carter could serve 8 years in federal prison for banned online speech

 

Hey — take fucking heed.  America has officially gone into paranoid schizophrenic meltdown.

“Someone had said something to the effect of ‘Oh you’re insane, you’re crazy, you’re messed up in the head,’” father Jack Carter told KKVUE News, “to which he replied ‘Oh yeah, I’m real messed up in the head, I’m going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts.’”

According to the parent, the teenager from Texas followed up that remark with the phrases “LOL” and “JK”— Internet shorthand for “Laugh out Loud” and “Just Kidding.”

Keystone XL Protester Faces 1 year in Jail For Speakinghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XthAezqn738

Treasonous JUDGES are cooperating with corporations to silence dissenters.  The First Amendment guarantee of free speech is being systematically eroded in the service of increasing corporate power and profit.  This Keystone XL case is a sign of increased crackdown on environmentalists, who are the targets of increased legal penalties for opposing the fossil fuel industry.  The corruption of government is now outlawing free speech by those who seek to stop dangerous, dirty tar sands pipelines and watershed-polluting fracking operations.

nypd-parody

The thug army who beat on the Occupy Wall Street Zuccotti Park encampment — in complete violation of their constitutional rights to assemble peacefully and speak out, all the while barking “STOP RESISTING,” WHACK, WHACK, KICK;  “STOP RESISTING,” POUND, ASSAULT, BATTERY — have hunted down the drone poster artist and locked him up.

Such bogus, bullshit “charges” as “criminal possession of a forged instrument” are being leveled against one of the city’s most important artistic voices in an attempt to silence the message and discourage others from lampooning the NYPD and its military occupation tactics.  This brand of laughable legalese attempting to criminalize speech should prompt lawsuits and wrongful arrest charges against those violating the right of the artist to parody the authorities.  Parody is a long-protected form of speech, and arbitrary attempts to label it a criminal act should not stand against the US Constitutional protections of same.

Already the New York Gulag is an emerging rights-free zone where “stop and frisk” searches are permitted by cops against the civilian population.  Numerous minority civilians report persistent harassment by New York’s paramilitary forces.

Here is an interview with the artist, “Essam” explaining his drone campaign:

Friends,

Governments from around the world will soon gather in Dubai at the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT), where they will negotiate a binding international treaty that could change the internet as we know it.

Several countries are proposing to expand the powers of a government-dominated institution, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Some proposals could legitimize monitoring and blocking online traffic. Others threaten privacy, seek to impose new fees for accessing content, or could very well slow down connection speeds¹.

Governments in Latin America to Africa to Asia are expressing doubt about these proposals, and we’ve been told that hearing directly from their citizens may well sway their vote. Together with Fight for the Future², Access has put together a video to mobilize the global internet to call on our governments to oppose handing over key decisions about the internet to the ITU.

Watch and share the video by clicking the link below, and sign this urgent petition. We’ll deliver it before they gather in Dubai on December 3:

For an open internet,
