No one is surprised who reads NetHappenings that you are spied on.
Contact-tracing apps used to track protestors.
I’ve been warning everyone about losing their privacy for what?? like the past 25 years?
Yes, I have.
It’s not like warning you that just cause you have nothing important to say doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about your privacy. What you do in your search engine should be private.
WEAR THE DAMN MASK
One thing to understand about masks is viral dose:
Evidence suggests it takes a big dose of the Coronavirus to cause an infection.
Masks can be effective even if they don’t block 100% of pathogens, because they can still lower your viral dose and protect you
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST SPYING PROBLEM?
FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM & WHATSAPP
Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sanberg make their money doing everything that is bad for our children, and our democracy.
THEY SHOULD BE FIRED!
The board of directors are complicit. They could just kick them both out tomorrow!
The two most lawless presidents of the last 60 years have both been the most insistent on “law and order”.
The BEST war protest song ever recorded.
“Tin soldiers and Nixon’s coming. We’re finally on our own.” What a brilliant, unforgettable writing. 50th anniversary of Kent State University shooting. Who is listening to this now in the midst of the protests?
All those kids are now in their 60s and 70s. And politicians still don’t know any better.
Jeffrey Glenn Miller; age 20; shot through the mouth; killed instantly
Allison B. Krause; age 19; fatal left chest wound; died later that day
William Knox Schroeder; age 19; fatal chest wound; died almost an hour later
Police are there to PROTECT and SERVE the citizenry.
After “take a knee” was ridiculed and Trump didn’t listen but bullied, now we are asking why not peaceful protests and againwhite supremacists start the violence.
The law can’t criminalize protestors. It is not illegal to protest in the streets.
Military are soldiers trained to kill. Military Equipment sold or given to the Police kill people with it. That is the opposite of their jobs.
Police do not get military training, so when their knee goes down on your neck, you die. The military are trained. They don’t do it unless they want to kill you. Untrained police who do it are killers. Police have made themselves illegitimate and can’t enforce law.
Every city whose police decided to walk with protestors did not see rioting. Rioting is the voice of rage when police are murdering civilians.

When Civilian Protest Is Labeled ‘Urban Warfare’
By Nick Baumann // Nick Baumann is The Atlantic’s politics editor.
This is what escalation looks like. “The situation on the ground in Minneapolis & St. Paul has shifted & the response tonight will be different as a result,” the Minnesota Department of Public Safety tweeted as businesses boarded up their windows and the Saturday sun sank low over the Twin Cities. The National Guard and law-enforcement presence would “triple in size,” the state agency warned, “to address a sophisticated network of urban warfare.”
“Urban warfare” is a striking choice of words for a state agency, and one that cable-news anchors seized on and repeated in the fiery hours that followed. For the fifth straight night, Americans marched and chanted—and some rioted and looted—overwhelmed with frustration and rage by the Monday killing of George Floyd, who died while a Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. Prosecutors charged Chauvin with manslaughter and third-degree murder on Friday, but three other police officers involved in the incident remain free. And the current protests are about not one black man’s death, but thousands of them, and centuries of discrimination, dehumanization, and denial of basic civil rights. <//>
Minnesota is now using contact tracing to track protestors, as demonstrations escalate.
Why Hasn’t The Hunting Bow Guy Been Arrested?
A man brandished a hunting bow and arrow toward protestors in Salt Lake City. Why hasn’t he been arrested? One guess.
Good news! FISA is Dead
A vote that would have reauthorized the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the basis of U.S. spying laws that allows the NSA to collect vast amounts of web and phone data, was scrapped this week after the president threatened to veto the bill.
Bad news. The Sandworm hacker group, linked to power outages in Ukraine and other major cyberattacks, is actively exploiting a security flaw in efforts to break into computers run by the U.S. government.
Idiot Arkansas Governor called in the FBI
Arkansas calls the person who discovered a breach a criminal
Another good-faith researcher facing the backlash of a confused and reactive politician.
Arkansas Times: So, this happened. Arkansas’ unemployment assistance website had a bug that was exposing Social Security and bank account numbers. A computer programmer found the bug and got in touch with a reporter, who flagged the issue to the state’s governor’s office. So far so good — I’ve done this countless times before. Fix the bug, job done. But that’s where things got messy: the governor’s office called the person who found the breach a criminal, claiming the website had been “exploited.”
DHS wants access to more photos
U.S. Homeland Security is linking its facial recognition database to the FBI, the Department of Defense, and the Department of State, which will allow DHS staff vast access to other departments’ facial recognition databases. That will help DHS access records on more passport and visa holders, and correlate names against those who have fallen into the criminal justice system. DHS already has 250 million people’s biometric data from border crossings. But State and the FBI have much bigger databases, and DHS wants in.
Taiwan News: Taiwan government database leaked on dark web. It was reported on Friday (May 29) that a government database of more than 20 million Taiwanese citizens was leaked on the dark web. According to researchers at Cyble Inc., Toogod, a known and reputable actor was found to have released the data titled, Taiwan Whole Country Home Registry DB, onto the dark web. It is unusual for an entire nation’s database to be leaked, Cyble reported. The data is from the Ministry of the Interior’s Department of Household Registration.
Financial Lynching Must Be Part of the National Debate
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: June 1, 2020 ~
As we watched the dangerous scenes of protesters interacting with riot police and the ransacking of banks and businesses in cities across the United States this past weekend, a warning from the 19th century abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, came to mind:
“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
