Almost Everyone Involved in Developing Tor was (or is) Funded by the US Government

Almost Everyone Involved in Developing Tor was (or is) Funded by the US Government
“The United States government can’t simply run an anonymity system for everybody and then use it themselves only. Because then every time a connection came from it people would say, “Oh, it’s another CIA agent.” If those are the only people using the network.” —Roger Dingledine, co-founder of the Tor Network, 2004 In early July, hacker Jacob Appelbaum and two other security experts published a blockbuster story in conjunction with the German press. Internet privacy activists and organizations reacted to the news with shock. But the German exposé showed Tor providing the opposite of anonymity: it singled out users for total NSA surveillance, potentially sucking up and recording everything they did online. To many in the privacy community, the NSA’s attack on Tor was tantamount to high treason: a fascist violation of a fundamental and sacred human right to privacy and free speech. The Electronic Frontier Foundation believes Tor to be “essential to freedom of expression.” NSA? Tor at the NSA? Related:  Darknet

Bar Association Exposed Note to all people, when you have to navigate in the court rooms, know that these quasi-courts so called judges are really Magistrates or Administrators, and they are practicing Law over the bench and making legal determinations for the people, which is an absolute violation of due process of Law. Also know that there are only two courts, such as Criminal and Civil, there is no indices in the Constitution for Traffic Court, which means that every ticket they give you is illegal. So when you are in Criminal Court, there must be indictment papers before any acceptance of you of charges against you, in which most courts want you to take a plea, which is really to give up your rights. This is why the Bar Association "licensed" Attorneys must keep to their oath, pledge and terms of allegiance, to the Crown Temple, if they are to be "called to Bar" and work in the "Legal" profession.

What Was Silk Road? Refresh Your Memory as Ross Ulbricht Goes to Trial Ross Ulbricht’s trial for his alleged role as “Dread Pirate Roberts,” the owner of the shadowy online market place Silk Road, is scheduled to begin Tuesday. Ulbricht was indicted last year for operating the site, which allowed users to buy and sell drugs anonymously. He was charged with narcotics conspiracy, engaging in criminal enterprise, conspiracy to commit computer hacking and money laundering conspiracy. As part of the indictment, Ulbricht is accused of running the website on “The Onion Router,” concealing IP addresses and hiding the locations of Bitcoin transmissions. If all that sounds complicated, that’s because it is. Shortly after Ulbricht’s arrest, TIME’s Lev Grossman and Jay Newton-Small profiled Silk Road and the world in which it operated. On the afternoon of Oct. 1, 2013, a tall, slender, shaggy-haired man left his house on 15th Avenue in San Francisco. Read the rest of the story, here in the TIME Vault: The Deep Web

Yes, There Are Paid Government Trolls On Social Media, Blogs, Forums And Websites Do you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts? For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult. Image: Keyboard (Wikimedia Commons). But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments have been doing this. As you will see below, a UK intelligence outfit known as the Government Communications Headquarters, through a previously secret unit known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, has been systematically attempting “to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse”. This should be deeply disturbing to anyone that values free speech on the Internet. It isn’t just that the British government is trying to influence what people are thinking. –Infiltration Operation –Ruse Operation –Set Piece Operation

Plongée dans l'Internet criminel Oubliez Google ou Yahoo, laissez tomber les extensions familières en .com, .fr ou .net.

L’internet et les « pédo-nazis » : le best of J'en avais rêvé, Stéfan l'a fait : sur son blog, 36 15 ma vie, il a compilé une dizaine de reportages passés aux JT de France Télévision dans les années 90, qu'il a débusqué dans les archives de l'Ina et qui tous présentent l'internet comme un repère de pédophiles, de nazis, de trafiquants de drogue et de médicaments, de terroristes aussi. Bref, de pédo-nazis, comme on avait fini par les surnommer en cette fin de siècle dernier. Au risque de choquer certains : non seulement c'est (bien évidemment très -très très- exagéré), mais c'est tant mieux, et on aurait tort de s'en priver, pour la simple et bonne raison que le fait qu'ils se montrent permet, aussi, de les débusquer (voir aussi le billet que j'avais déjà écrit à ce sujet : Les pédophiles sont sur le Net. Nous aussi. Et tant mieux.). Trêve de bavardage, passons maintenant à la télévision, et à l'excellent billet de Stéfan, qu'il m'a autorisé à reproduire ici-bas : Scandale sur internet

The Day We Fight Back - February 11th 2014 On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog Peter Steiner's cartoon, as published in The New Yorker History[edit] Peter Steiner, a cartoonist and contributor to The New Yorker since 1979,[5] said the cartoon initially did not get a lot of attention, but that it later took on a life of its own, and he felt similar to the person who created the "smiley face".[1] In fact, Steiner was not that interested in the Internet when he drew the cartoon, and although he did have an online account, he recalled attaching no "profound" meaning to the cartoon; it was just something he drew in the manner of a "make-up-a-caption" cartoon.[1] In response to the comic's popularity, he stated, "I can't quite fathom that it's that widely known and recognized Context[edit] The cartoon marks a notable moment in the history of the Internet. The cartoon symbolizes an understanding of Internet privacy that stresses the ability of users to send and receive messages in general anonymity.
