UK politicians green-light plans to record every citizen's internet history

Surveillance legislation proposed by the UK last November has been examined in detail by the country's politicians, with a new report recommending 86 alterations, but broadly approving the powers requested by the government. The parliamentary committee scrutinizing the draft Investigatory Powers Bill said that companies like Apple and Facebook should not be required to decrypt messages sent on their services, but approved plans to record every UK citizen's browsing history for 12 months. The committee also gave a thumbs up to the bulk retention of data, and the targeted hacking of individuals' computers, known as "equipment interference."

TTIP: A locked room, no internet access, two hours, 300 pages and lots of typos

Katja Kipping has written a personal account of her visit to a special reading room at the German Ministry of Economics that was set up after Parliamentarians fought and won the right to see the text being negotiated on their behalf by bureaucrats.

In it, she describes the extraordinary lengths that the German government has gone to in order to prevent any useful information on the trade deal being made public.

First, Kipping was required to book the room for a given period and was allowed only two hours to review the 300+ pages of the current deal (or 25 seconds per page).

Then she was only permitted to enter the specific room at the Economic Ministry by herself. She was required to leave her jacket, her bag and her phone outside the room so she was not able to take notes or otherwise record or picture the text.

North Korea's launch of a useless satellite atop a thinly-disguised intercontinental ballistic missile has turned out to have immediate terrestrial implications, including some for the technology industries, after South Korea closed a manufacturing enclave in the North.

The South's Ministry of Unification has announced that henceforth the Kaesong Industrial Complex will be “completely closed.”

Putin's internet guru says 'nyet' to Windows, 'da' to desktop Linux

The Russian government says it is looking to dump Microsoft and adopt Linux as the operating system for agency PCs.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Russian internet advisor German Klimenko said the state will consider moving all of its networks off the Microsoft platform and onto an unspecified Linux build instead.

Citing Microsoft's capitulation to the US government in honoring sanctions against Russia, Klimenko said that the Redmond software giant had reached the "point of no return" with Moscow and that 22,000 government agencies and municipal offices were prepared to drop Windows right now.

Deutsche Bank Is Back: 5 Year Sub CDS Soar To Record High

"Worse than Lehman" is how one European bond market trader described the carnage this week as the brief respite that ECB monetization and debt-buyback rumors provided yesterday have morphed into utter destruction this morning. European (and US) banks are a sea of contagious red with Deutsche Bank the tip of the collapse spear. Credit risk on Deutsche has exploded this morning with Sub CDS trading up 85bps to a record high 540bps... eerily reminiscent of the pre-Lehman bankruptcy week in 2008.

Time to panic now?

HOLOHOAX MAGIC: FITTING 13 STADIUMS INTO 1 GARAGE

You see, we are expected to believe that 1.1 million people (officially and suspiciously reduced from the 4 million that had been claimed for 50 years!) were herded into a "gas chamber" the size of a 3-car garage, then killed by bug-spray (Zyklon B), right under the noses of Red Cross camp inspectors, while inmate soccer games were going on in an adjacent field. The hard-working killers (or their slaves) then had to enter the poison room (perhaps wearing HazMat suits?), pick up each dead body one at a time, and then feed them one-by-one into a funeral parlor sized oven for cremation. Whatever happened to that famed German efficiency? (holocau$t at its finest)

Netanyahu's Wife Abused Household Staff, Court Rules

In her own appearance before the court, Mrs Netanyahu called the allegations slander and lies. She testified that she enjoyed excellent relations with employees and that she treated them "with civility and politeness".
But, the court said, "this is not the conclusion reached from the evidence presented to us". Mrs Netanyahu ran the household in a "high-handed manner" and witnesses had been persuasive and credible, it said.

“It’s Time!!!!” Cliven Bundy Arrested As FBI Closes In On Malheur Holdouts... Is Today Another Waco?

Note: This situation is ongoing. The Feds are now surrounding the Malheur scene and forcing the final four occupiers into a final, and potentially tragic, act.

Is today about to become the next Waco/Ruby Ridge murder-by-government, or is it the day that four holdouts – Sean Anderson, Sandy Anderson, David Fry and Jeff Banta – surrender peacefully to an army of FBI and federal agents after 40 days – as well as the murder-by-feds of LaVoy Finicum, and the arrest of a dozen or so participants?

“I’m sort of in frustrated disbelief right now that there’s someone in the federal government right now who thought it was a good idea to arrest Cliven Bundy while (Nevada State Rep.) Michele Fiore was negotiating for the stand down at the refuge.”
