The criminal organization calling itself the United States Government has filed a lawsuit in its own courts against married couple Walter and M. Rae Olenick over their free operation of a radio station (archived). The couple operated Texas Liberty Radio until 2017 when they lost access to their broadcast tower. The lawsuit has come out of the USG's impotence to successfully extort money from the Olenick family over "penalties" it alleges the couple owes for for exercising their power to broadcast on the radio spectrum.
The couple used the radio station to broadcast content from Alex Jones, a social media personality who recently had all of his social media accounts banned or suspended in a coordinated action by the third parties he had been dependent on (archived).
A group calling itself the government of New Zealand has banned sales of homes to foreign nationals in an attempt to curb rising prices (archived). Under the measure, which exempts buyers of Australian and Singaporean nationality, foreigners would be restricted to purchasing apartments in large scale block developments.
In recent years New Zealand has seen substantial real estate demand from wealthy buyers from China and the US looking for a retreat from instability in larger Anglophone areas. With home ownership among adult New Zealanders floating around ~25 percent, this measure has the potential to deliver some serious pain to their rental market.
Five black adults charged in a case that involves them keeping 11 living children and at least one dead child in a New Mexico desert training camp have received bail (archived, archived). The alleged purpose of the training camp was to prepare black muslim militants as child soldiers to conduct school shootings. One camp leader, Siraj Wahhaj, remains in custody due to an outstanding warrant from Georgia relating to a domestic dispute.
Today the New York Times published an opinion piece by disgraced and imprisoned former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva with the apparent intent to influence the outcome of the upcoming Brazilian election (archived). This comes after the New York Times has spent nearly two years attempting to delegitimize US President Donald Trumpś election with a social engineering campaign alleging Russian influence in the form of foreign Facebook memes affected the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election.1
In the piece Lula attempts to frame his and his party's decade and a half long kleptocratic reign as a "labor movement" and the criminal investigations that leaded him in jail and his successor impeached as a "right-wing coup".
Lula is attempting to run in the Brazilian presidential election from prison against a "Great Again" candidate despite his conviction as a corrupt motherfucker. Brazilian prosperity peaked in the 19th century under Emperor Pedro II, and lags behind the successes of its imperial age as it as been afflicted by socialists and kleptocrats of all flavors. For maximum meddling value the New York Times published the corrupt motherfucker's piece in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Joe Stacking has seen an increase in recent days with 2 men pushed to the brink took to the skies in pursuit of satisfaction:
- In the first incident a SEATAC ground crew member, 29 year old Richard Russell, took a plane from his workplace and engaged in a recreational flight with his only training sourced from video games (archived). In a conversation with air traffic controllers he lamented the enui of his marginalized white, male, Pacific Northwestern existence and threatened nothing more than the thrill of attempting to perform a barrel roll. US government F-15 warplanes followed the joyrider until the plane met the ground, likely due to action by the pilots of the warplanes killing Russell.
- In the second incident 47 year old Duane Youd, a professional pilot driven to the edge by his bitch wife took a Cessna Citation jet and flew it into his Utah home which his bitch wife had police remove him from hours earlier (archived). The wife survived the incident uninjured, but substantially poorer.
The Bangkok post reports that 22 year old Finnish man Aarni Otava Saarimaa allegedly gave a fortune of 5564.4 Bitcoins to a group of Thai men offering him the opportunity to invest in an online casino and an altcoin project they dubbed "Dragon Coin" (archived). Reportedly the Thai men instead converted the fortune into 797 million bhat of which 745 million bhat made it into their bank accounts. In a very Tradehillesque move, many of those bhat were further converted to real estate.
Local police have arrested a number of Thai men for connection to the plot while others they would like to arrest have fled, including one to the United States. Local police are insisting that despite earlier local reports which alleged a number of local politicians were involved, there were no politicians involved in fingering the Finn's Fortune.
A story which circulated last month where a South Korean firm declared they found wreckage of a Russian warship containing tons of gold appears to have been an altcoin fraud with the firm planning to create an altcoin backed by non-existent sea gold (archived). The firm allocated a rather specific value to the sea floor find without actually providing evidence of the alleged find's size, and an affiliate in Signapore began issuing an altcoin against that value.
Numerous reports are alleging that supplies meant to provide for Puerto Ricans in the wake of last year's devastating hurricane strike on the island are rotting at local election commision offices (archived). Intended to have been distributed, many of the perishable supplies have rotted after sitting for a year under the watch of the election commisions. Relatedly, the Puerto Rican government has conceeded this week that Hurricane casualties numbered at least 1427 despite their official tally having sat at 64 for an entire year following the Hurricane's end. "Our Democracy" strikes again.
A report investigating a Denial of Service botnet has revealed a substantial number of wireless gateways emplaced in emergency vehicles and around numerous USG infrasctructure sites that are full of holes (archived). These ready bake botnet nodes are embedded in networks as varied as airports, hydrogen refueling stations, and ambulance fleets. In addition to being recruited into producing poor internet weather, when installed in vehicles they can allow tracking the vehicle with sufficient resolution to guess what kind of vehicle: police, fire fighting, etc is ferrying around the vulnerable wireless gateway. Fixed installations of the vulnerable gateways has in several cases been documented as motivated by a desire to provision emergency access to the networks so compromised by the device's installaton.
The United States Department of Defense amid numerous reports of personnel leaking information through fitness tracking apps has decided to ban them (archived). As military personnel represent a substantial portion of the market for fitness related purchases, if only due to their nominally being graded on fitness for job retention and promotion, this is bleak news for the fitness tracking industry.
