Refugees who sheltered Edward Snowden seek Canada asylum

The refugee families fed and housed Mr Snowden for two weeks when he fled the US after leaking thousands of files.

They are still living in poverty in Hong Kong and unable to work after providing a refuge for the American in July 2013.

Their lawyers say it is “a matter of life and death” if they remain in the city.


Obama Gives Soros’ ‘Mothership’ Millions to Destabilize Macedonian Elections

President Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, secretly worked with Soros’ “Mothership,” — The Open Society Foundation — to funnel an enormous amount of U.S. taxpayer dollars for the leftist cause. In essence, the Obama-Soros operation constitutes interference by the U.S. government in the domestic political affairs of Macedonia.


Girls Shouldn’t Read Any Books By Men

Caitlin Moran, the widely-celebrated feminist author and columnist, has called for girls to avoid reading any books with male authors until they are grown women.

Moran, a Times of London columnist behind the best-selling How to Be a Woman, argued that reading great works by males will make young women cripplingly insecure.


France: Mayor Faces $1,900 Fine For Saying 91% Muslim Classrooms Are A ‘Problem’

A far-right French mayor has appeared in court on charges of inciting hatred for his remarks last year, in which he said that there were too many Muslim children at the schools in his city, and implied that the ethnic French population is being “replaced.”

Robert Menard, mayor of the southern town of Beziers and an ally of Marine Le Pen’s anti-immigration and Eurosceptic National Front party, appeared before Paris Criminal Court on Wednesday for the launch of his trial for incitement of hatred, in relation to two statements he made in 2016.


Twitter might have marked your profile as ‘sensitive’

On Thursday, a Mashable reporter clicked on the profile of technology analyst Justin Warren. Instead of showing his image or his tweets, the account blocked his profile image and included a caution: “This profile may include potentially sensitive content.”

The reporter could still ultimately view the account, but only by clicking that he agreed to continue despite the possibility of seeing “sensitive images or language.”


Maryam Monsef: “Discrimination and gender stereotypes influence our daily lives”

Maryam Monsef, Minister of Status of Women, highlighted the slogan of “Equality Matters” and the importance of continuing the struggle for gender equality. In a statement on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2017, Monsef emphasized that “Canada has the potential to lead the world on this issue.”

On March 8, 2017, Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, committed to “provide $650 million in funding to address gaps in sexual and reproductive health and rights in the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.”


10 Things You Didn’t Know About The CIA Before Yesterday

WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 release of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents yesterday opened eyes worldwide about an agency President John F. Kennedy once vowed to “splinter…into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.”


UN human rights chief attacks Europe’s ‘chilling indifference’ to refugees as 2017 sees record deaths

“I am particularly disturbed by lurid public narratives which appear deliberately aimed at stirring up public fear and panic, by depicting these vulnerable people as criminal invading hordes.”


Credit Suisse: Starbucks Stock Rating Drops 80 Points After Announcing Opposition to President Trump

Back in January Starbucks announced they were going to stand in opposition to President Trump; and to display their virtuous immigration bona fides they announced their intention to hire 10,000 refugees as employees in lieu of current American applicants for employment.

An almost immediate backlash began as pro-USA consumers and President Trump supporters turned away from the Starbucks brand. As a consequence the Starbucks business model has been severely impacted.


Ontario government implies “systemic racism” is unique to white people

Michael Coteau, Minister of Children and Youth Services and Minister Responsible for Anti-Racism, published on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 the “Three Year Anti-Racism Strategic Plan” that will start “collecting race-based data” as a “valuable way to better understand where racial inequalities exist.”

Coteau’s statement implies that “systemic racism” is exclusively prevalent within white people by identifying its victims as “Black, Indigenous and other racialized people.”

  • I must admit I am chillingly indifferent to ‘refugees’, and regard them all as criminal invading hordes.

          Although I remember, as a kid in the early 60s, seeing guys in movies climbing telephone poles and intercepting calls by taping in the line with two alligator clips and a phone handset.

          Peter Wright, formerly of Mi5, wrote an interesting book called Spycatcher in 1987 that chronicles his work in counter-intelligence as far back as the Second World War so they’ve been at it for a while. They’ve just updated their methods.

          Does the Vault 7 dump annoy me, yes. Does any of the info surprise me, no.

        • I think some of the stuff in the “10 Things You Didn’t Know About The CIA Before Yesterday” is stuff that it is under development — not operational yet.

      • Watchman
    • Just curious, I’m not a programmer (amateur tech) but anyone know what coding language they’re using in their examples? Doesn’t seem to be html, some of it looks like registry commands but can’t really tell.

      e.g.:

      WCHAR wcDrivePath[] = L”H:\sloth.jpg”;
      CHAR cSig[] = “Test1234Test1234Test1234Test1234Test1234”;

      IDataTransfer *dtTransfer = new DTFile_PICT(wcDrivePath, (LPBYTE)cSig);

      //Write one chunk, find file, read file, delete file
      DWORD dwChunkSize = 0;
      DWORD dwFileProgID = 0;

      //Add the file to storage file
      DataTransErr dtErr = dtTransfer->addFile(5, byData1, dwData1Len);

      Anybody know offhand?

      • mauser 98

        .?????

        • All the code examples seem to follow the same sort of script pattern. Anyway, I’ll keep my eye on the professional tech sites as they analyze the leaky wicks content — the pros in the private sector were the ones who were able to pinpoint the exact malware that was used to hack the DNC and identify the (probably impersonated) “Ukraine” signature…

          • FactsWillOut

            No control structures, boolean or logical operators?
            Those are often fairly distinctive.

            Then there is the possibility of a custom syntax for a custom compiler.

          • That’s all they give. But apparently the tools themselves will be released soon, so should have more answers soon.

          • I think it’s C++.

          • Thanks. Seems C++ is used in some of the examples, as well as php scripts which apparently can be injected ANYWHERE such as in html and xml scripts. Php appears especially versatile — it was apparently used in the DNC hack.

            (The partial script I gave at the beginning is apparently for compromising images such as png’s and jpg’s, which I’ve had lots of problems with lately!)

          • FactsWillOut

            As I understand it, PHP is exclusively a server-side scripting language that can only spit out html (unlike, say, javascript), so PHP malware can only exploit weaknesses in browsers, whereas javascript can be run on the client machine.

          • Interesting. I occasionally get a php “cookie” trying to install in an unusual directory when I use vpn (client side). I usually exit, but a couple times I allowed it to install to take a look at it offline. Appears to be a client side User ID script but it never appeared “satisfied” — once I accepted it constantly tried to overwrite with a new (apparently identical) php.

          • FactsWillOut

            Unless you are actually running a web server (like IIS or Apache), PHP script is not executed on your machine.

          • Nope. So as you say it probably wasn’t executing — it didn’t seem to be. Maybe the “free” vpn was trying to steal bandwidth, using my machine as a “virtual server”? I use masking so maybe the vpn was misinterpreting my machine as having server capabilities.

      • CodexCoder

        If you look up DTFile_Pict on Google, there is an explanation on Wikileaks about that structure. The idea behind the command is to append text onto a bmp, jpg, png (graphic file of some kind) as a marker, then use that marker to delete the file. As to the language, it looks to be a C derivative with custom libraries (DLLs), and the author is using Hungarian (as denoted by WCHAR wcDrivePath, for example) and must have been trained in Microsoft coding practices. And yes, the // are standard comment marker in C/C++ or C#, but the syntax is C.

        • Thanks, I think you got it. Although I noticed the same // comment delimiters in PHP syntax.

        If it’s part of an html file i.e. downloaded by your browser when you go to a website it’s probably Javascript.

    O/T…Malik Obama posted Barry’s Kenyan birth certificate on Twitter…..luv it..real news

    • Blacksmith

      Saw that yesterday, I wonder if it is true, at a glance it looks like it might be a real birth certificate, I think forensic testing will be necessary.

    • Sheriff Arpaio’s five-year investigation finally bearing fruit?

    • Interesting, Malik’s evidence purportedly shows Obama’s baby “footprint” on the Kenyan certificate — I guess footprints are as unique as handprints?

      And although it’s only the short-form Kenyan birth certificate, serial number etc. should easily lead to the long-form certificate on file:

      • Frances

        Hospitals used to – back in the day – take the baby’s footprints as identifiers.

        • The lines and creases in the bottom of the foot would be the same as the person aged, I assume.

  • canminuteman

    So the Ontario government is going to start gathering race statistics for crime? What are they going to so with that data when it doesn’t fit the narrative?

    • They didn’t say ‘accurate’ data. Think AGW.

    • reidjr

      They will make sure it fits even if it means making stats up.

      wildass guess…white people guilty

  • ontario john

    The media is excited this morning, about our feminist prime minister lecturing Americans about the joys of green energy scams, and of course the wildly popular carbon tax. Because as the prime minister explained, everyone in Canada is excited about the carbon tax. And fake journalist Paul Wells in the Toronto Star explains that it is ok for your family to be Nazis as long as your a Liberal.

    “Girls Shouldn’t Read Any Books By Men”

    We’ve seen a lot of dumb shit reported on this blog but this takes the cake.

  • ontario john

    The CBC is reporting that three executives from Bombardier have been arrested in Sweden that involves Putin, Russia, and bribery charges. So glad little Justin is giving millions of dollars to that company. So, the Canadian media rants every day about someone on Trump’s team that may have talked to a Russian, but Trudeau gives hundreds of millions to a company that is now charged with shady dealings with Russia, and that gets minor attention. But then our feminist prime minister got away with shady dealings with a billionaire muslim scam artist as well.

    Re : Maryam Monsef – To “discriminate”: according to Merriam-Webster: to distinguish by discerning or exposing differences : to recognize or identify as separate and distinct.

    Yes Maryam, I “discriminate” every day. I discriminate while choosing tomatoes at the supermarket, I discriminate when I decide what socks to wear in the morning, I discriminate when looking at the actions and behaviors of different cultures and socio-political ideologies. Some are just better than others.

    As to “gender stereotypes”, I hope you don’t mind if I trust my readings on evolutionary psychology more than your anecdotal, pop-culture snowflake victim bullshit. I’m just funny like that.
