Even digital cameras are at risk of hacking: Security researchers warn WiFi enabled DSLRs can be infected with ransomware

Not even your digital camera is safe from the threat of malicious computer bugs, according to security researchers.

In a report released earlier this week by analysts at Check Point Software Technologies, researchers detail how they were able to remotely install ransomware on a DSLR by exploiting the standardized Picture Transfer Protocol.

The protocol, developed to allow the transfer of pictures from a camera to one's computer via WiFi is a particularly easy target according to researchers.

States Sue Trump Over Plans To Ding Obama-Era Environmental Regs, Triggering Legal Fight

More than two dozen states and cities sued the Trump administration Tuesday to block President Donald Trump from easing environmental restriction on coal power plants.

New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, is leading the charge. She argues the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had no basis for weakening a regulation brought by former President Barack Obama that placed national limits on carbon dioxide pollution from coal power plants.

Beijing Refuses American Warships Entry To Hong Kong Ports

Mere hours after President Trump tweeted that US intelligence had confirmed the buildup of Chinese troops on the border with Hong Kong, US defense officials warned that Beijing had refused two US Navy ships permission to make port stops in Hong Kong in the coming weeks, a sign that President Xi is none too pleased with how the US has handled itself during the anti-extradition bill protests that have swept Hong Kong over the past ten weeks.

The Curious Case of the Missing Professor Mifsud

In The Times newspaper on July 30th, appeared a short and succinct article, easily missed were it not for its intriguing headline: ‘Missing academic Joseph Mifsud at heart of Mueller investigation’. The academic in question, one may or may not have heard of, depending on the extent to which one is reliant on mainstream media for keeping abreast of the news. But anyone attempting to keep up with the complex and murky world of the Mueller investigation, may be familiar with the name of this mysterious and elusive figure.

For it is none other than Professor Mifsud, affiliated with both the Universities of Stirling and East Anglia in the UK, that was identified by the FBI as being the source of the information that Russia had ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton. And intriguingly, the same Professor Mifsud who disappeared in October 2017 and has been missing ever since.

A reader points out this article by a liberal in the Atlantic. It is titled “The Left Needs a Language Potent Enough to Counter Trump.” The writer, George Packer, is mostly intent on denouncing President Trump’s “dangerously populist” speech. As usual, the author goes off on Nazi, Hitler, and fascist tropes without acknowledging that the reason why the things Trump says are “populist” is that they make sense to most people, based on their experiences and observations. That part of the article is too foolish and boring to be worthy of comment.

But when the writer moves on to a topic he understands better, the shortcomings of his fellow leftists, he makes some good points–points that are especially noteworthy because they come from inside the leftists’ closed world:

The Islamic Republic of Iran Navy, is dubbed by the country’s leadership a strategic force, and employs a conventional doctrine focusing on forward presence and naval diplomacy. Its mission areas include the Caspian Sea, the Gulf of Oman and out-of-area operations. The Iranian Navy has a relatively low number of warship and is not intended to counter modern fleets, like those of the US or the UK. At the same time, the Iranian Navy is capable enough to deal with threats from the country’s regional competitors that also have limited capabilities in terms of the conventional naval power.

The second Iranian naval force is the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) – it is established on an asymmetric doctrine, entirely focused on ensuring national security in the Persian Gulf. The IRGCN’s doctrine sees naval powers of Western countries as its main potential adversaries.

Entrapment: The Jeffery Epstein Operation

Entrapping these men, blackmailing them that they are forever indebted to him (Epstein). They can't get out of it now. They are trapped. So how do you get a war that no body in America wants?

Rudy Giuliani on Jeffrey Epstein’s Mysterious Passing: ‘Absolutely No Excuse for This’

Speaking on Tuesday morning during an interview on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani — and currently a lawyer for President Donald Trump — said that there’s “absolutely no excuse” for what happened, apparently, to financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in his jail cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center (MCC) this past weekend.

“There’s absolutely no excuse for this. What happened [in that jail cell], to me, is mind-boggling,” he said.

Bill Gates flew with Jeffrey Epstein on the Lolita Express in 2013, with the man whose charity aims to empower young girls joining the serial pedophile four years after he left prison

Bill Gates hitched a ride on Jeffrey Epstein's plane - four years after he served time behind bars for soliciting a minor under the age of 18 for sex.

Flight records reveal that Gates flew with Epstein from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013, one of the few flights that year where pilot Larry Viskoski recorded the name of a passenger.

A representative for Gates did not respond to a request for comment, and the pairing is an odd one given the work Melinda Gates and the couple's foundation does for young women around the world.

2020 candidate Tulsi Gabbard leaves the campaign trail for two weeks to report for active duty as a reservist but vows she WILL be back despite failing to become a Democratic frontrunner

Tulsi Gabbard, who serves in Hawaii's National Guard, is taking two weeks off the campaign trail to participate in a training exercise mission in Indonesia as her presidential bid struggles to gain momentum.

'The experience that I'm having is no different from any other guardsmen or reservist in the country who puts their life aside for a couple of weeks and goes and fulfills that training and that responsibility,' she told reporters of her deployment on Saturday after she spoke at a gun forum here.

Location of Amelia Earhart's lost plane could be revealed by a small mark on a black and white photo taken in 1937 - and the 77-year-old explorer who found the Titanic is on an expedition to find it

A small smudge on an black and white photo taken in 1937 is leading the man who discovered the Titanic on a mission to find the remains of Amelia Earhart's plane.

The image was taken by British colonial officer Eric Bevington after his freighter ran aground on Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro Island, in the Pacific Ocean three months after Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan went missing on their attempt to circumnavigate the globe.

In the far-left corner on the photo was a minuscule mark, measuring one-millimeter, which decades later could hold the secret to where the plane went down.

After digital enhancement in 2010, experts said the smudge is likely the landing gear of a Lockheed Model 10-E Electra - Earhart's plane.

Red Flag Laws (Or How To Repeal The Second Amendment Soviet-Style Without A Pesky Vote)

I know that you, gentle reader, have thoughts about guns that are probably pretty similar to mine, so I’d like to take you on a short walk through history, specifically the history of politics and psychiatry. I promise, it will make more sense than the lyrics to the Manfred Mann song Blinded by the Light. What the hell is a go-cart Mozart, and why is he checking out the weather chart, anyway?

(Related: Civil War Weather Reports – Civil War II Weather Report: Spicy Time Coming, Civil War Weather Report #2, Censorship, Stalin, and a Bunch of Links, and Civil War Weather Report #3: Violence, China, and Lots of Links)

The history of psychiatry is tied directly to the political.

I have seen a person suffering from schizophrenia to such a degree that they were sure that MTV® video stars were stealing songs directly from their brain and that they were also a surgeon who regularly performed operations on world leaders and stored their organs in the freezer for safe keeping.

‘World is watching’: US reaction points to Hong Kong as a ‘color revolution’

If the iconography and tone of Hong Kong protests and the support from US diplomats weren’t enough, Washington’s words of concern sure seem to suggest that the months-long demonstrations amount to a ‘color revolution.’
On Monday, the Trump administration urged “all sides to refrain from violence.” While carefully paying lip service to Hong Kong being an internal Chinese matter, the unnamed White House official who spoke to the press said the US supported those “looking for democracy.”

San Jose Mayor Proposes Requiring Gun Owners To Buy Liability Insurance

In what could become a trend for cities impact by mass shootings, Sam Liccardo, the mayor of San Jose - where 19-year-old Santino William Legan killed 3 (including 2 children) and wounded 16 others at the Gilroy Garlic Festival last month - has proposed a new city ordinance that would require firearm owners to either carry liability insurance or pay a fee to help cover the public costs of gun violence, Axios reports

San Jose, the tenth-largest city in the country, is the first to propose a "harm reduction" reduction policy aimed at stopping gun violence (though whether these measures will definitively end gun violence very much remains to be seen).

Reporter Who Broke Epstein Story: 'He Manipulated His Jailers To Get Off Suicide Watch'

In her first interview since Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell of an apparent suicide Saturday morning, Julie K Brown, the Miami Herald investigative reporter whose reporting led to the latest bevy of criminal charges against the convicted pedophile, told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle said she believes Epstein manipulated the prison staff to have himself removed from suicide watch and have his roommate removed from his cell...giving him the opportunity to take his own life.

Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers Rode On Epstein's 'Lolita Express'

Larry Summers has been telling any financial journalist who will listen that the bottom is about to fall out of the economy any minute now...but perhaps he has an ulterior motive for all of his economic doomsaying.

The former Harvard President and Clinton-era Treasury Secretary has been cited four times on the flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein's 'Lolita Express'. During his first trip, he was still working in the Clinton administration. And during his most recent - in 2005 - he and his wife accompanied Epstein to Epstein's private island just days after their wedding.

Poll: Young British Voters Reject Liberalism and Globalism, Want ‘Strong Leaders’

A poll has revealed that two-thirds of young people want a strongman as leader, while more than one-quarter would be happy with the military leading the country, revealing that younger generations are turning their backs on decades of liberalism.

The poll of 5,073 people conducted by Hanbury Strategy between the 21st and 28th of June and published on Thursday by conservative think tank Onward found that across all age groups, 58 per cent of people think that having “a strong leader who does not have to bother with Parliament” would be a good way to run the United Kingdom.

The results come as Prime Minister Johnson, a very much larger-than-life political figure compared to ‘strongman’ U.S. President Donald Trump, is set to battle the Remainer-dominated House of Commons to deliver Brexit, as pledged, by October 31st.

Of all those questioned, just over one-quarter, 26 per cent, said it would be good “having the army run the country”.

Hungary Announces Investigation into Social Media Censorship in Europe

Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga has announced that she will be starting an investigation into censorship of political views on social media in Hungary and across Europe.

The Hungarian minister made her announcement on social media platform Facebook over the weekend, saying she would be creating a “working group” within the ministry to “investigate the possibilities for a legal environment to ensure the transparency of social media service providers – both on EU and national level.”

“Originally their job would not be to influence societal processes and elections by censoring comments on an ideological basis, however, if they had done it once they shall accept the necessity of the regulation and follow the rules of democracy,” she added.

‘EU make peasants vote again!’ Trump adviser sends panic through ‘undemocratic’ Brussels

John Bolton, following his first meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London, took aim at the EU for prolonging the Brexit process and not respecting the result of the 2016 referendum. Mr Bolton called the EU’s bluff and insisted its refusal to re-negotiate the failed withdrawal agreement was a ploy to “make the peasants vote again and again”. Mr Bolton said: “The fashion in the European Union is when the people vote the wrong way from the way the elites want to go, is to make the peasants vote again and again until they get it right.

The unexpected success of Russia’s cartoon industry in recent years, especially with the Masha and the Bear cartoon series, has brought the long-awaited revival to Russian cartoonists. With Western MSM (mainstream media) pushing for the increasingly despotic regulation in media space, including the cartoon industry, this is a breath of fresh air. With over 4 billion views, one of the Masha and the Bear episodes is in the top 5 most popular YouTube videos.

‘Hollywood Fantasy’: Vice Admiral Calms Discussions On Possible US-Russia Naval Conflict

The US should not abuse exercises near Russia’s borders, as Washington underestimates the risks of such maneuvers, writes Lyle Goldstein, a professor at the US Naval College’s China Marine Research Institute.

In an article written for National Interest magazine , the professor points out that there are still at least 18,000 mines in the Russian waters of the Azov Sea, as well as along the Black Sea coast, left after World War II.

Reason for war?
An accidental explosion of a NATO ship in one of these mines could lead to a naval conflict with Russia, which could turn into a total defeat for Atlantic Alliance forces, Goldstein believes.

Russia Poised to Become Fourth Biggest Reserve Holder Unseating Saudi Arabia

Russia has been ditching dollar-denominated assets for over a year and a half amid ongoing sanctions pressure from Washington. It also has been piling up gold reserves, which reportedly soared in value due to a trade war between the US and China that caused the metal's price to spike.

Russia may soon replace Saudi Arabia as the fourth biggest holder of reserves in currency, precious metals and other securities, Bloomberg reported. The news agency estimated the Russian Central Bank's reserves at around $518 billion, something which have been growing significantly for the past four years, while the Kingdom has around $527 billion at its disposal.

Latest wealth figures: Greed is winning & humanity is losing

The one thing upon which the world’s major religions and most schools of philosophy are agreed is the perils and evil of human greed.

Unfortunately, there are some people who didn’t get the memo on greed. Take the Waltons, for example, the family behind the Walmart retail empire. According to the financial and money website, Bloomberg, they get richer by $4 million every hour – yes, you read that right, not every week or month, every hour – while at the same time paying their workers (or as they prefer to refer to them, ‘associates’) a paltry 11 bucks an hour.

There is no human being on this Earth who can justify getting (not making, mind, getting) $4 million an hour, and there is no justification for paying any worker a wage as low as $11 an hour. Only the most psychologically dysfunctional or morally empty could conceivably consider such a scenario and wealth gap compatible with progress.

German Foreign Minister’s Plane Mysteriously Breaks Down Twice in Less Than 24 Hours En Route to US

The state of the German government’s fleet of aircraft has come under considerable scrutiny in recent months amid repeated incidents involving the breakdown of VIP planes. Late last year, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Airbus was grounded after a “serious malfunction” left it flying blind during a trip to Argentina for a G20 summit.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas’s trip to New York for a meeting of the UN Security Council got off to a rocky start after his government plane faced two consecutive breakdowns in a matter of hours, the Luftwaffe’s press service has reported.

Pompeo to UN: ‘Time is running out’ to kick Iran while it’s down

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned allies that time is running out to squash Iran while it’s weakened by an arms embargo, urging them to halt Tehran’s “destabilizing behavior” before it regains the ability to fight back.
Tweeting a countdown clock purporting to show the “time remaining before the UN arms embargo on Iran expires and Qasim Soleimani’s travel ban ends,” Pompeo urged “allies and partners” to step up their pressure on the bogeyman du jour before the embargo expires and the playing field levels somewhat.

Netanyahu seeks Trump go-ahead for Israel’s West Bank annexation to help win election

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is pushing US President Donald Trump to give the go-ahead for Israel’s annexation of the West Bank before the country’s upcoming general election.

Officials in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office told the Times of Israel’s Hebrew-language site on Sunday that Netanyahu is seeking a public declaration from President Trump in support of Israel’s annexation of “Area C” of the occupied West Bank, where the majority of its some 500 illegal settlements are located.

Netanyahu is pushing for President Trump to issue such a declaration before Israel’s general election on 17 September in a bid to secure his Likud party’s victory and therefore his re-election as prime minister.

UN To America: Open the Border, Kill More Babies

Behaving more and more like the global government it seeks to become, the United Nations has stepped up its attacks against America — especially the growing efforts to protect the Southern border and the lives of unborn children.

Hong Kong phooey! Would you like any hypocrisy with that?

Where to start? For nearly 40 weeks hundreds of thousands of French people have been on the streets in anti-government demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron’s rule.

Some have lost eyes and hands in the police response. The public has begun to view the smell of tear gas as a normal part of a weekend in Paris. France is 29 miles from the coast of England. Siri just told me that “Hong Kong is about 5,992 miles from London as the crow flies.”

So complete has been the British media blackout on the Yellow Vests that many believe, wrongly, that there is some British government order banning on any mention of “les événements en France.” The truth is that there is no need for one.

Israel uses Eid to push forward al-Aqsa takeover

Israeli police injured dozens of Palestinians praying at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on Sunday, the first day of Eid al-Adha or Feast of the Sacrifice.

The Muslim holiday this year coincides with the Jewish holiday of Tisha B’Av, which in Jewish belief commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem.

The Islamic Waqf – the body responsible for Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem – announced on Friday that only the al-Aqsa mosque would open its doors for prayers in Jerusalem on the first day of the holiday.

Israel initially closed the al-Aqsa mosque compound, which Jews call the Temple Mount and Muslims call al-Haram al-Sharif, for Jewish worshippers on Sunday, as is the norm, to avoid clashes with Muslim worshippers.

Anti-Semitism definition behind secret ban on aid to Palestinian children

An East London council banned a charity bike ride raising money for Palestinian children from using its public parks, internal emails revealed last week.

The council also secretly sent a list of proposed speakers to the Metropolitan Police asking if they were “extremist,” The Electronic Intifada can reveal.

The emails indicate that Tower Hamlets secretly based their decision on the “furore within the Labour Party over anti-Semitism” and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s discredited definition of anti-Semitism.

Farmers Hit Back as USDA Chief Mocks Those Harmed by Trade War as “Whiners”

By Jake Johnson

Farmers facing record bankruptcies and collapsing incomes due to President Donald Trump’s escalating trade war with China were not amused by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s joke about their economic pain during an event in Minnesota last week.

“I had a farmer tell me this in Pennsylvania,” Perdue told an audience of thousands of farmers gathered in a barn near Morgan, Minnesota. “What do you call two farmers in a basement? A whine cellar.”

Some laughed at the agriculture secretary’s joke, but other farmers booed and denounced Perdue’s wisecrack as callous and tone-deaf mockery of the real hardship caused by the Trump administration’s trade policies...

The Palestine Brief: Demolitions in Negev and the forgotten plight of Palestinian Bedouins

Last week, for the 149th time in a row, Israel demolished the Palestinian Bedouin village of al-Araqib in the Negev desert.

Police raided the village and broke the tin homes belonging to the Bedouins. Tin construction material was confiscated to make it harder for them to rebuild their homes, leaving them homeless in temperatures that could reach 40 degrees Celsius this time of the year.

Israeli home demolitions are well publicised. Solidarity campaigns routinely brief the public opinion about them. But often, the focus is on home demolitions in the occupied Palestinian territories, which have been stepped up dramatically this year as Israel prepares to annex the rest of the West Bank.

The NYT’s Pro-War Arguments Against War With Iran

The New York Times has published five editorials since the beginning of May that are ostensibly critical of a possible military war between the United States and Iran. As anti-war arguments, however, they are woefully lacking—vilifying Iran without subjecting the US to comparable scrutiny, and hiding US aggression towards Iran.

The editorials regurgitate the same anti-Iran demonology pro-war voices offer to try to justify an attack on the country. In one case (5/4/19), readers are told that

there is no doubt that the Revolutionary Guards is a malign actor. Founded in 1979, it was the revolution’s protector. In time, the corps became a tool of violence and military adventurism as Iran expanded its regional influence in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Syria.

North Korea Changes Up Its Game to Bypass U.S. Missile Defenses

North Korea has conducted a round of long range rocket tests designed to kick down the door and destroy ballistic missile defenses protecting South Korea. The new rockets fly under U.S. high altitude missile defense weapons, paving the way for further missile strikes. The missiles are proof that, far from disarming, the country with an economy smaller than Hawaii’s is prepared to do what it takes to keep South Korea—and the wider world—in fear of its missiles.

Why the Dollar Rules the World — And Why Its Reign Could End

By Antony P. Mueller

President Donald Trump wants a lower US dollar. He complains about the over-valuation of the American currency. Yet, is he right to accuse other countries of a “currency manipulation”? Is the position of the US dollar in the international monetary arena not a manipulation in its own right? How much has the United States benefited from the global role of the dollar, and is this “exorbitant privilege” coming to end? In order to find an answer to these questions, we must take a look at the monetary side of the rise of the American Empire...

WashPo: 'Free Speech Makes It Difficult to Prosecute White Supremacy'

From The Washington Post, "Why free speech makes it difficult to prosecute white supremacy in America":

Federal authorities have used RICO many times to prosecute white prison gangs, but what got the members of organizations such as the Aryan Brotherhood locked up under the statute was not the racism they believed but the acts they committed: crimes including drug trafficking, murder, kidnapping and money laundering.

Jeffrey Epstein investigation expands to France, Caribbean

The investigation into accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has branched out overseas — as authorities are now examining his properties in France and the Caribbean.

French authorities said they have initiated an investigation into the billionaire, who was found dead in his New York City jail cell last weekend. U.S. officials suspect he hanged himself during a period of time he wasn’t monitored.

Epstein owned an apartment in Paris and U.S. authorities have connected him to several French nationals. He was arrested last month after returning from France.

Our Galaxy's Supermassive Black Hole Has Emitted a Mysteriously Bright Flare

The supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, Sagittarius A*, is relatively quiet. It's not an active nucleus, spewing light and heat into the space around it; most of the time, the black hole's activity is low key, with minimal fluctuations in its brightness.

Most of the time. Recently, astronomers caught it going absolutely bananas, suddenly growing 75 times brighter before subsiding back to normal levels. That's the brightest we've ever seen Sgr A* in near-infrared wavelengths.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Objects hitting the event horizon can have as much as 1/3 of their rest mass converted to energy. So I would suggest that the black hole sucked something in.

Beef burgers have been banned by a university as part of efforts to tackle the climate emergency.

Goldsmiths, University of London said it is to remove all beef products from sale from next month as the institution attempts to become carbon neutral by 2025.
