China Buys Firefox? Mozilla To Build New Browsers That Conform To Internet Censorship Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 23:55:37 Id: 16617a [Preview] No. 1406 [Reply]
Mozilla To Build New Browsers That Conform To Internet Censorship


In November of 1737, decades before America officially declared its independence from the king of England, a young Benjamin Franklin published an essay in The Pennsylvania Gazette entitled, “On Freedom of Speech and the Press.” In it, Franklin wrote, “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the Constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.” Franklin went on to write, “An evil magistrate entrusted with power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible.”

Although this was written in an article published more than two and a half centuries ago, Franklin’s words are quite possibly more relevant today than they ever have been. Indeed, there is an ongoing effort by the progressive left and extremists such as George Soros to silence speech that doesn’t align with the liberal agenda. This effort to effectively gut the First Amendment is taking place virtually everywhere you look, from the mainstream media, to Hollywood, to college campuses, and perhaps most frequently, across the Internet.

Recently, the popular Internet web browser Mozilla Firefox announced that it plans on joining the fight against what it considers to be “fake news,” a term that to leftists means nothing more than news that is written by conservatives. Mozilla said that it was “investing in people, programs and projects” in an effort to “disrupt misinformation online.”

The first question that every constitutionalist and liberty-loving American should be asking is as follows: How does Mozilla define “fake news?” Are they only talking about suppressing radical websites such as sites run by white supremacists, or are they talking about any news that comes from conservatives? At the very least, it should worry you that companies like Mozilla are often reluctant to thoroughly define “fake news” – it is highly unlikely that this is unintentional.

Furthermore, what exactly gives Mozilla the right or the authority to determine what is misinformation and what is not? The United States Constitution is the law of the land, and the freedom of speech is an inalienable right from God. The fact that Mozilla thinks it has sweeping authority to select which speech is censored and which speech is not runs contrary to everything that America was founded upon.

With the assault on independent media getting increasingly aggressive, many Internet bloggers and website owners are desperately looking for ways they can continue voicing their opinions without being harassed, suppressed or silenced. If you are one of these people, you may want to consider using “Brave,” a relatively new web browser founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

Sad sad sad. Firefox was my favorite web browser. NOT anymore! Won't be updating it, I turned off the auto-updates and purged the auto-update files from the /.mozilla/ directory.

What next? What new browser will save the day? We need one that allows security add-on features like Mozilla still does (I don't doubt that will change soon enough though!)

Netrunner but it's currently WIP. When it's ready, it will be a ultimate browser.
I would probably go with GNU Icecat.

I'm thinking about Waterfox, its a copycat of the older Firefox platform, but I don't know if my security add-ons (like Noscript and RAS) will work with it or not. I might try it out on an offline PC first and try installing the add-ons, if it seems to work fine I'll use that for now on.

Disable auto-updates on your old Firefox browser immediately. Go to preferences, advanced, update, and then set it to "do not update this browser."

If you fuckers don't know how to purchase a simple cheap private VPN service by now, or just use Tor, you deserve the consequences of your stupidity.

There are plenty of ways to securely encrypt your communications and obfuscate your IP address, your MAC address, your browser ID, OS ID and GET requests.

My two cents. Just read the article, most likely scenario is they want to investigate *organized involvement concerning *hired provocateurs. The ones who get paid to vandalize, beat innocent people up, riot (etc) by the Soros-funded NGOs.

And if this happens to be the case then good, it serves those fuckers right. Hopefully they crack down on *paid *organized brutality and criminality.

On the other hand, privacy should be protected for those who did not break the law and were merely protesting peacefully. Refer to 8chan/opsec/ for some decent online privacy tips if you want to learn how to operate more privately over the web. Otherwise come up with your own solutions... or don't complain if you choose to sit there and do nothing to protect your own identity. There are plenty of solutions already out there to protect identity theft (even from the govt).

Private VPN service (w/ encryption and no logging policy) is just the first step. There are many other techniques to utilize like spoofing the browser agent, your OS metadata, using a more secure operating system with harddrive encryption, using Ccleaner or Bleachbit to wipe out system logs and browser/OS history, using forward secrecy, long passwords and multiple accounts, storing most of your important files offline... you get the picture.

You don't have to take any security pre-cautions if you don't want to, but just don't bitch when you get hacked or find out your personal info is being sold all around the world including your browsing habits. And don't be shocked when whistleblowers like Snowden dump more classified proving governments spy on our online activities.

Everyone likes to bitch, but very few actually DO SOMETHING about it: such as taking practical precautions and remaining vigilant. Thats what separates the men from the sheep.

Expect More Chaos, False Flags: Left-Wing Billionaire George Soros Upping Lobbying Efforts in 2017 Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 13:42:20 Id: 8963bd [Preview] No. 1404 [Reply]
RELATED >>>/news/1396

Left-wing billionaire George Soros, known for his global political influence, is reportedly upping his lobbying efforts in the U.S. — pouring significantly more money into pushing Congress to back his legislative goals in 2017.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, disclosure forms suggest that the big money donor is upping his efforts to influence policy via The Open Society Policy Center — a D.C. based non-profit.

According to the Free Beacon, the organization spent nearly as much on lobbying in the first half of 2017 as it did in the entirety of 2016. So far it has spent at least $4.6 million on lobbying, according to forms filed with Congress and has three in-house lobbyists tasked with lobbying Congress, the National Security Council, the Pentagon, and the State Department.

The group has lobbied on issues ranging from nuclear defense to U.S.-Hungary relations — particularly the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017 and the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2018. Over the course of the year, the group has significantly broadened the issues on which it is lobbying. At the beginning of the year, it was lobbying on three issues — by June it was lobbying on 17 issues.

“OSPC engages on a range of issues in Congress, which have been fairly consistent over time,” a spokesman for the policy center told the outlet in a statement. “The level of spending on those issues tends to rise and fall depending on their state of play in Congress.”

According to the Free Beacon, the center is on pace to spend $9.2 million this year, marking a broader upward trend. The outlet reports that in the last four-and-a-half-years, it has spent $41.6 million — more than double what it spent during the ten years prior to that.

Former Clinton Employee: Charlottesville Riots Planned By DNC (Pretext To Ban Free Speech), More False Flags Coming Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 10:04:33 Id: 3ad9fd [Preview] No. 1396 [Reply]
A former Clinton employ believes that the Charlottesville attack was planned by the DNC and has warned that more attacks are coming.

According to Larry Nichols, the Democrats are planning to do whatever it takes to impeach President Trump within the next few months and replace him with Obama.

In an interview published on May 23, 2017, Nichols explains that the DNC are planning riots across America whilst “posing as Conservatives” in the hope that they can trigger a major Constitutional crisis that will oust President Trump.

Z3news.com reports: Larry Nichols was hired by Bill Clinton in 1988, while Clinton was still Governor of Arkansas. Clinton later fired Nichols, and Nichols has devoted himself to exposing Clinton’s many scandals ever since. (Source: Wikipedia) With the help of the mainstream news media, Clinton and his deep state cronies have retaliated by attacking Nichols, branding him as a nutty conspiracy theorist.

Nichols explains the reason why the Democrats are targeting the next six months is to allow the firestorm to blow over and settle down prior to the 2018 elections.

He also revealed their plans to take their OFA town hall tactics to the next level. We have already seen examples of how they have sent their trained operatives into town hall meetings throughout the nation, causing disruptions and chaos, but Nichols claims their next move is to cause riots while posing as conservatives. Their hope is by causing enough trouble they can trigger a Constitutional crisis while blaming it all on the conservatives.

Nichols claims a statute exists by which a FEMA provisional government can step in and take over our government under certain extreme conditions, including an invasion by a foreign military or simultaneous riots in five or more cities. In that event, Nichols claims a temporary FEMA government would replace our Constitutional republic, which would allow the new “leader” to function as a dictator, making decisions without Congressional approval.

If such a statute exists, it would be unconstitutional and should be discarded because our Constitution includes specific requirements for approving any amendments. A Constitutional Convention must be called by two-thirds of the legislatures of the states. Then those amendments must be approved by three-fourths of the states. No proposal like that has ever even been presented in any Constitutional Convention, so anyone claiming a FEMA government has the right to replace our Constitutional republic is either confused or lying or both.

Congress does not have the authority to change the Constitution to enact a new FEMA government under any circumstances. Any attempts to replace our republic with a FEMA government should therefore be resisted be every American citizen. However, such lawlessness should not surprise anyone because it has been rampant in Washington DC in recent years, especially since Obama took office in January 2009, openly choosing not to enforce laws he did not like.

Charlottesville Killer Was Hillary Supporter, Funded By Soros Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 10:26:13 Id: 3ad9fd [Preview] No. 1400 del
The man accused of being a neo-Nazi and murdering a woman by deliberately driving into her during protests in Charlottesville is in reality a supporter of Hillary Clinton and member of Antifa in receipt of funding by George Soros, according to reports.

James Fields, 20, of Maumee, Ohio, allegedly killed Heather Heyer, aged 32, and injured 19 others when he rammed his car into a group of protesters on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Mainstream media is claiming Fields is a neo-Nazi and has conveniently produced photographs showing Fields standing with Vanguard America and carrying a shield bearing the group’s insignia.

But the mainstream media is actively suppressing information that proves Fields is actually a left-wing operative at the heart of a false flag designed to spark civil war, introduce martial law, and take away the rights of conservative groups to assemble peacefully.

Police were ordered to stand down just before the incident, as confirmed by ACLU. “This invited the violence the city used to shut down a court-permitted protest,” said Robert Barnes, a high-profile constitutional lawyer.

YouTube Is Purging Evidence Of US War Crimes In Middle East Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 09:55:19 Id: 141836 [Preview] No. 1395 [Reply]
RELATED: https://archive.fo/EUE3d

Last month YouTube censored a video showing US military airdrops falling into the hands of ISIS.

According to the YouTube team, the video, posted by alternative geopolitical analyst Mimi Al Laham aka “Partisan Girl,” was repeatedly deleted due to the fact that it violated their Community Guidelines.

Now YouTube has found new targets to censor by labelling videos showing the US conducting airstrikes and committing war crimes in the Middle East as “extremist” content.

The Free Thought Project reports:

The monitoring organization Airwars.org recently reported that its YouTube account had been targeted, just one week after YouTube published a new blog post announcing that it is “developing and implementing cutting-edge machine learning technology designed to help us identify and remove violent extremism and terrorism-related content in a scalable way.”

Airwars raised the issue on Twitter, noting that after approving hundreds of their videos documenting U.S. airstrikes, YouTube has suddenly blocked three videos out of nowhere. The newly blocked videos showed U.S. coalition airstrikes that were reportedly targeting ISIS, and their dates ranged from August 2015 to March 2016.

Can you work out why @TeamYouTube has banned these three videos? We can’t. Of 100s we have archived since 2014, these 3 blocked this weeek pic.twitter.com/Yu0ZniC6My

Communist Illinois State Passes Law Declaring Free Speech 'Terrorism' Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 09:43:53 Id: 36dce0 [Preview] No. 1394 [Reply]
Lawmakers in Illinois have passed a resolution that officially recognises white supremacy as ‘terrorism’ and labels all white nationalists as ‘Nazis.’

Justifying the new law, state Democratic Senator Don Harmon said, “It is vital that we stand in total opposition to the hatred, bigotry and violence displayed by the white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups in Charlottesville this past weekend.”

24minute.com reports: Harmon, who sponsored the bill, also added, “We fought two bloody wars in opposition to their ideologies. We must continue to fight those same twisted ideologies today.”

These fringe organizations and so-called “alt right” white supremacist groups, like those who came to Charlottesville this past weekend, are the “heirs to the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis,” Harmon said.

The resolution was passed in the wake of violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend. White supremacists convened into the city after the mayor announced he was considering removing the city’s statue honoring Robert E. Lee, a southern Civil War general. White supremacists congregated in the thousands on Emancipation Park, which was formerly named Lee Park, to protest the removal, donning signs and wearing emblems that matched those worn by Nazis in Germany and segregationists during the era of Jim Crow in America.


Collapsible Carry Gun: No Bigger Than a Credit Card When Folded Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 09:25:35 Id: de566c [Preview] No. 1393 [Reply]
The LifeCard carry gun is a collapsible, single-shot .22 Long Rifle that is “no bigger than a credit card when folded.”

The gun is manufactured by Trailblazer Firearms and designed to be a self-defense tool that is easy to carry and even easier to conceal.

In a press release sent to Breitbart News, the LifeCard is described as a “single-action, single-shot folding pistol, no bigger than a credit card when folded.” Its frame is designed to be “no snag” and the “grip handle is constructed from fully-machined aluminum billet and hard-coat black anodized.” The barrel, bolt and trigger are all “made of steel with an Isonite® finish for corrosion resistance.”

When folded, the LifeCard is “3.375in. x 2.125in.” and “.05in. thin.” It weighs less than 7 ounces.

The handle contains an hidden compartment that holds four extra rounds of ammunition.

Trailblazer Firearms president Aaron Voigt said the development of LifeCard took a total of seven years, which was time-frame he not anticipate. However, he says the time spent was “valuable and will show in every aspect of this remarkable product.”

Voigt added, “Trailblazer Firearms fully intends to spearhead innovative new firearms products starting with the LifeCard®, available later this month. New designs and true innovation have been the exception and our goal is to be the pioneer laying new trails for gun enthusiasts, designers and manufacturers.”


Sanctuary City Objects to Arrest of Accused Illegal Alien Child Molester Reader 08/15/2017 (Tue) 09:23:48 Id: 47bdd3 [Preview] No. 1392 [Reply]
Officials in one California sanctuary city are upset after immigration agents arrested an illegal alien facing child molestation charges and another previously deported three times prior.

The recent arrest took place in Hayward, California, when officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were looking for an illegal immigrant but in the course of their investigation, they found 42-year-old Jose Salgado and 34-year-old Antonio Valenzuela.

The arrest took place during an operation by ICE officers who were carrying out an enforcement operation targeting another individual in an unrelated case, said ICE Spokesman Jason Schwab. They determined that both men were in the country illegally and detained them. Salgado was arrested earlier this year by local authorities on a felony charge involving lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, Schwab said. Prior to his recent arrest by ICE agents, Salgado had not been previously encountered by federal authorities. In the case of Valenzuela, the Mexican national was previously deported three times and had one conviction of driving under the influence. Both men remain in federal custody.

Soon after the arrest, Hayward officials issued a statement expressing their concern over federal immigration arrests in the city. According to their statement, the circumstances leading to the arrest “are concerning because of the potential impact on the trust our officers and local government seek to maintain with all members of our community.”


Roomba Pursuing Plan to Share 3D Maps of Your Private Home with Google, Apple and Amazon Reader 08/11/2017 (Fri) 16:02:12 Id: 04509f [Preview] No. 1350 [Reply]

Everywhere you turn these days, new technology seeks to undermine both constitutional guarantees and basic assumptions of privacy, when you would normally and reasonably expect that you’re not being spied upon.

After all, it’s one thing to put your entire life online in a series of social media posts; that happens by choice. But when devices you buy for one purpose turn out to serve the additional purpose of invading your privacy, that’s a problem.

As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, the maker of the autonomous vacuuming robot, Roomba, has just revealed plans for his next generation of devices to include technology to gather 3D floor plans on your home and then transmit them to third parties. (Related: Wikileaks reveals the extent of the CIA hacking capabilities; personal devices are no longer safe or private.)

The machines have been in homes for years now, bouncing harmlessly off walls and furniture in their quest to keep your floors clean. But now they will be designed to collect more than just dirt:

That data is of a spatial variety: The dimensions of a room as well as distances between sofas, tables, lamps and other home furnishings.

To a tech industry eager to push ‘smart’ homes controlled by a variety of Internet-enabled devices, that space is the next frontier.

Already connected devices like cameras for home security, smart-home lighting and thermostats are on the market. But the CEO of Roomba manufacturer iRobot Corp., Colin Angle, says even those devices are still ‘dumb’ when it comes to gathering an understanding of their overall surrounding environment.

So he believes that mapping technology which currently helps guide Roombas throughout homes could be changed to accommodate gathering specific home dimensions, and so he’s basing the company’s strategy on that concept moving forward.

Again. Agree with you. Those things are evil. But don't ask a normie to choose between NFL on wide screen and his privacy.
But get him a cheap router that filters evil samsung/lg/apple/advertisers ip ranges and routes the tv via a vpn, (And maybe shows him a nice graphic on his tablet of what shit his tv is attempting to ex filtrate) and maybe they'll opt for the extra privacy on the 5'000$ TV.

15) This is bad advice, if you've lost control of your webcam, then someone already has root on your device. (And you can't disable mics and cameras on most laptops)
Instead, give them a secure OS, or a device that lights up when a usb port start being more heavily used. Or hell just a program that pops up a message warning you that the camera is in use:

Separate email for everything.
This is good advice. But again. Imagine a normie doing this. Signing up for a new email address is painful.

Here's a better idea. Set up a free email server for family and friends. Give every account a free domain name. Route every email for one domain to their inbox. Tell them their email address is whateverthefuckyouwantitdoesntmatterlol@theircustomdomain.com

Again. Make it EASY. Just give them a url, a password. And make it easy for them to add it to their phone or existing gmail or whatever (Yea i know, google evilz, etc, but worry about easy first)

14) Free domain names you can use for that: .TK / .ML / .GA / .CF / .GQ


It's possible to preconfigure android apps right? Preconfigure a free email client with this and make it work out the box.
The normie will use it. And will be tracked less across sites. Less targeted spam!
This also means, if their password is leaked on one site (the normie will always just use one really bad password, get over it), attackers wont be able to match it to any other sites. (Most sites rate limit login attempts, so a dictionary attack containing the normies pw isn't as bad anymore)

13) Useless advice. Human mind is bad at memorizing random letters and numbers.

Instead. Generate a crazy complex password for someone, and sharpie it on the back of their credit card. Or on house keys.
It's written down.
They always have it on them.
They won't lose it.
It's super complex.
If they do lose it, who will know wtf are the numbers for?

And encryption? Just turn it on for them. Normies hate dialogue boxes. Make it easy. On/Off button. Simple. Otherwise they won't do it. The brain shuts down when they hear the word. Don't tell. Do.

=+90 Year Old Jewish Lottery Winner Charged With Child Rape==

>Attorneys say that 90 year old Peter Kaczmarczyk, who is both a Jewish-Polish Veteran of the Second World War and a retired cab driver, was already an old man when he won nearly $8 million in the lottery in 2010.

>Prosecutors say that Kaczmarczyk’s crimes were horrific, which led to his prosecution on multiple charges of child rape, after a woman claimed to recognize him as her childhood tormentor.

>However Kaczmarczyk is now instead playing  the victim, what some would say are “typical tricks”, from a pedophile accused of sexually assaulting a child.

>His claim is that he is terminally ill, and unable to attend his own trial, which was supposed to have started this week. His lawyer told a judge “it would probably kill him” according to court records.

>The story goes back to when he won lottery prize in 2010, a now 65 year old woman recognized Kaczmarczyk’s picture on the lottery website, and then layer went to police.

>This was her mother’s former boyfriend when she was a child, according to the court records.

>She said for years Kaczmarczyk sexually assaulted her dating back in the 1950s and ’60s, before she ran away from home as a result of the abuses.

>At the time of the alleged assaults, Kaczmarczyk would have been between the ages of 29 and 41.
