PC ‘Crimes Against Ideology’ Canard Lets Genuine Anti-Muslim Bigots off the Hook

The establishment media, who are responsible for legitimizing the liberal interventionist and neocon wars which are actually killing Muslims and many other people, try to compensate for this by disingenuously characterizing anti-Muslim hatred as crimes against Islam. But a crime against a religion is a victimless crime, if ever there was one! Continue Reading

Fears Grow Of Intensified North Korean Cyber-Terrorism

Fears Grow Of Intensified North Korean Cyber-Terrorism

An internationally respected think-tank has predicted an increase in North Korean sponsored cyber-terrorism.

The North Korean Strategy Think-tank (NKST), based in Washington, D.C., collates intelligence from defectors, intelligence agencies and informed international observers. Its own psychologists and strategic analysts then use this information to fine-tune their model of the rogue state in an attempt to predict the most likely behaviour of the regime.

The most recent NKST analysis anticipates that further military provocations will be instigated by North Korea. It predicts, however, that these will fall short of any act sufficient to justify an American military strike in the face of Chinese and Russian opposition to military retaliation.

The Russian analysis that the Pyongyang leadership would rather eat grass then give up their nuclear ambitions is accepted as correct. The current NKST model, however, challenges the fear propagated by western media that Kim Jong-un is mentally unstable. The model indicates a low probability that he would deliberately seek a nuclear confrontation. As one NKST source unofficially put it: ‘Pyongyang well understands that after an all-out American attack, no edible grass would remain in North Korea.’

The NKST model has concluded that the current North Korean strategy to damage its perceived enemies will focus on intensification of its already significant efforts in the area of cyber-terrorism.

The NKST model assumes a calculation by Kim Jong-un that cyber-disruption perpetuated by a nation would be unlikely to draw any significant retaliation. This is believed to be a reasonable assumption – in part because culpability is very hard to prove. The NKST also notes, however, that cyber-terrorism is different in type from military action. A military response to a cyber-attack would currently be viewed by the international community as entirely disproportionate.

Credible rumours have recently emerged that WikiLeaks may have suppressed information about North Korean cyber-terrorism – information that had been covertly fed to the organisation from US and European intelligence sources. An unnamed whistleblower within WikiLeaks is alleged to have revealed the existence of reports relating to the experimental North Korean targeting of large numbers of Wi-Fi enabled systems in the west – parts of the, so called, ‘Internet of Things’.

Superficially, many of these reports appear ludicrous, and their alleged suppression by WikiLeaks has been attributed to fear of ridicule or accusations of propagating fake news.

Specific examples of North Korea’s experimental hi-jacking of such systems are alleged to have already included:

*Increasing the oven temperature being used by one contestant in ‘the Great British Bake Off’ in order to incinerate the contestant’s soufflé.
Although appearing to be a ridiculous claim, intelligence agencies have long been aware of Kim Jong-un’s interest in western cookery programmes together with his fury at being rejected for the role of judge in an early series of MasterChef.
*Switching off lights and cameras on the ITV breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, when Piers Morgan was presenting.
As in relation to nuclear provocations, Pyongyang appears to have an eye to the consequences of its actions. The North Koreans may reason that, if the silencing of Piers Morgan was ever attributed to North Korea, it might generate considerable public support for Kim Jong-un in the UK that would counter calls for retaliation in respect of the cyber-attack.
*Triggering Theresa May’s and Angela Merkel’s alarm clocks at three o’clock every morning so the leaders are never able to get a decent night’s sleep.
Any recent close-up photograph of either leader immediately makes this apparently bizarre claim hugely more credible then it first appears to be.

Other attacks are said to have occurred on systems which can be monitored by Pyongyang but for which the practical effects of North Korean hacking are not obvious on the ground.
Examples have allegedly included:
*Disrupting the timetabling computers on the British railway network to cause commuter chaos.
*Changing remotely collected data from UK meteorological stations to make UK weather predictions wildly unreliable.
*Taking selective control of cars across Italy and causing them to be driven in a reckless and suicidal manner.
*Inserting random nonsense into tweets by Donald Trump.
*Changing satnav programs to cause large trucks to become jammed in narrow country lanes.
*Scrambling any official electronic communications that contain the term ‘Brexit’ to cause confusion and chaos in the Brexit negotiation process.

If true, all the above cyber-attacks have been cunningly and effectively concealed because those observing the outcomes would have failed to detect anything unexpected.

Whilst the above actions may seem like superficial mischief, perfecting the perpetration of such attacks is thought to have a deadly serious purpose. For example, it is believed that, by 2020, Kim Jong-un could exercise control over millions of specific, Wi-Fi enabled domestic appliances throughout America and Europe.

One capability this would afford would be to simultaneously switch to maximum heat all vulnerable ovens and hobs in the early hours of a Sunday morning. Such an attack could also include the hyper-energisation of magnetrons in many microwave ovens such that anyone attempting to disconnect the weaponised equipment would be incinerated.

The NKST calculates that such an action could result in firestorms which would decimate many western cities.

Other such doomsday capabilities might include:
*Disabling condom vending machines late on Friday nights so that an unpredicted population increase would challenge western resources.
*Allowing an Alexa voice command to arrange a next day, Amazon Prime delivery of plutonium 239 to Pyongyang.
*Aiding Jeremy Corbyn to become UK Prime Minister and hence destroying the UK economy.
*Assisting Russia in aiding Donald Trump’s re-election for a second term.

The NKST has cautioned that with so many items of commercial and domestic equipment increasing being Wi-Fi enabled, the nature of any such co-ordinated attacks would be limited only by the imagination of the Pyongyang leadership.

Things You Need To Know Before Starting Your Dissertation

Things You Need To Know Before Starting Your Dissertation

Student life is full of new tasks, experiences, and challenges. Some of them are fun and exciting, while others are scary. Writing a dissertation undoubtedly belongs to the second group. Not only it is one of the most difficult endeavors to undertake, but it is also the most laborious and time-consuming project you have ever been assigned. No wonder many students, regardless of their field of study, feel very scared and anxious at the prospect of writing a dissertation. However, it does not necessarily have to be this way! With some help and useful tips at hand, the process of writing a dissertation can become much easier and smoother.

First of all, every student, who does not have enough time for dissertation writing, can order it without actually leaving home. For today, such services are available online, which makes it quite easy to hire an experienced academic writer proficient in your particular area of study. For more information check this link right here now and you are sure to find the answers to all your questions. As a result, you can forget about all the worries and fears you have about writing a dissertation and focus on your family, work, or other important issues in your life.
If ordering a custom paper is not your option, pay attention to the following things every student needs to know before starting a dissertation!

Top 5 Dissertation Writing Tips

1. Choose your topic carefully

The success of your dissertation largely depends on the chosen topic, so if you have such an opportunity, pick it very carefully. Try to find a fresh topic you are interested in. Moreover, make sure you have enough credible sources, and your methods are matched to your theory.

2. Plan your progress

Planning the wiring process ahead is a recipe for success, so you need to set measurable goals and create a consistent writing schedule. Once you have a realistic plan, stick to it. If your schedule changes for any reason, be prepared to create a new one.

3. Present your argument early on

No one likes to read boring academic papers, so if you want your dissertation to succeed, present your strong and sound argument in the first paragraphs. It will attract the reader’s attention and help them focus on the essence of your work.

4. Use diagrams and graphs

Keep in mind that tables are not always enough to depict your results or any other data. A good research paper should also include diagrams and graphs. They will not only explain the reader your concepts or theories but also help them understand what you are writing about.

5. Don’t underestimate the editing stage

If you treat the editing stage seriously, then you give yourself the best chance of success. Careful editing and proofreading are crucial for good writing, so make sure you have time for them in your busy schedule.

These simple yet effective tips can help you write a really good dissertation. Believe in yourself!

Random Thoughts (IV): Creativity, Spirituality, & Sci-Fi

Random Thoughts (IV): Creativity, Spirituality, & Sci-Fi

Outlet and Uplet

It helps sometimes to have a bit more of a spiritual side.
I think if I was left to the world of politics and ideology alone, it would kill me.
Creativity can be an escape, but it can also throw you deeper in.
Same for journalism and serious critique, in a different way.
If there is but one word that could sum up the world of the spirit, perhaps it could be this:
This much
Aye, indeed! There is…
And this much
Yet, is not the ALL.

Who are the Bad Guys?

Anyone know of some sci-fi where the Earthlings are the aggressors?
I.e…
“Hm. Sounds like them boys need some FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I notice a lot of sci-fi is very ‘defensive’in character. The Human Species are always the wronged, and not the wronged against. Deserves an essay in itself.
As I’m sure many scholars have said, there seems to be a correspondence between these plots and deeply-rooted anxieties about immigration, the Cold War, WWII, jihad, and other contentious topics.
But I wonder where all the good aliens and bad humans are…
Which creators have covered this topic? Cartoonists, novelists, screenwriters, etc?
(I posted this on my personal Facebook wall, and got a lot of interesting answers…)

The Crusades, & the Revisionist Assault on Civilization

There is much to be condemned about the actual manner in which the Crusades were carried out; but it is good that Europe was successfully defended, that Christianity survived, and that many good things came out of Christianity at a later point. Like secularism, the rule of law, and pluralism.

The great history Edward Gibbon said, albeit about a somewhat earlier battle (Poitiers, in the 8th century), that if Christendom had not won:

… The Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet.

This is a truly horrendous thought.

No Reformation, as there was nothing left to reform.

Certainly no Enlightenment, as there would be no enlightened people to be the torchbearers of individual liberty.

Be thankful you’re not living under a Caliph of any kind.
