For the 27th consecutive week Yellow Jacket protestors in France are calling for an end to the Macron regime.
Jakarta and Indonesia at large are under a "terror alert" ahead of elections next week (archived). The published fear is that local militant groups will bomb protests after the results are announced.
The criminal organization calling itself the "United States Government" has brought violence down upon South Carolina man Amir Golestan for market making North American IPv4 blocks when ARIN, the American Registry for Internet Numbers refused to do so (archived). Unlike the numerous other brokers for IPv4 addresses in the ARIN region Golestan is facing charges because he allegedly made a paperwork mistake leading the USG to issue 20 charges of felony wire fraud, each carrying a potential 20 year prison sentence.
Rumors and innuendo are swirling after recent embarrassments demonstrating the USG's inability to have a foreign policy, that John Bolton's time in the Trump administration may be coming to an end. After some brief stotting in the wake of the Venezuelan coup debacle, Bolton has begun rapidly pivoting the US to a war posture against Iran without adequately seeking the consent of democratically elected US President Trump (archived).
The latest round of Cisco patches includes one to address a vulnerability that allows anyone who can touch the web admin panel on a piece of kit to acquire root (archived). Another one of these was burned earlier this month. This week the US published an anti-Huawei executive order which fails to name Huawei though it could, in theory, be used in an effort to prevent US based businesses from engaging in commerce with the Chinese giant (archived).
Reports are emerging from New Zealand that gun confiscation raids have begun targeting private citizens with overwhelming force and an absence of due process (archived). The cases so far have involved 30 armed agents of the terrorist government of New Zealand conducting shock operations and presenting rural Kiwis with the choice of surrendering their guns or doing the "cold dead hands" thing. One compliant Kiwi targeted by overwhelming government terror offered:
They were very interested in my views on the Christchurch shooting, Muslims, religion, and politics. I don't hold extreme views. To imagine I'm some sort of white supremacist is just a bit far-fetched… I'd like to know how I came to be on a list somewhere. I'm just an everyday Kiwi. A phone call would have worked just as well.
In the wake of a self described "eco-terrorist" attack Prime Minister of New Zealand's terrorist government Jacinda Ardern began a campaign of suppresssion against the established population of New Zealand, going so far as to order arrests for merely viewing a video documenting the eco-terrorist attack. Ardern has been working in concert with African-French despot Macron in order to attempt the suppression of all internet and media communications opposed to international Pantsuit-ism (archived).
Adobe has begun sending users of classic versions of their software threats based around the proposition that only the two most recent releases of their software may be used (archived). So long as the fiat "licensing" scam gets "subscribers" to, the bits will continue rotting. Especially when money has been paid to the rotters for the bits.
The growth outlook for the global semiconductor market are eroding for the year as 2019 marches on thanks to an increase in NAND flash memory production and just about everything else in the space being materially worse than offerings from a decade ago in many important measures (archived). Meanwhile the Intel "optimization" induced data leaks keep rolling in (archived). The ongoing Intel optimization fraud has lead Google to disable Intel's "Hyperthreading" in their ChromeOS spyware with other vendors considering similar measures (archived).
Sweden has opened their investigation into Julian Assange again and appear to be preparing a competing extradition claim to the US one as Britain continues keeping Assange in captivity. At the same time Ecuador has turned over Assange's property left in their embassy to the USG (archived).
An official with Iran's Republican Guard declared that the presence of a US aircraft carrier no longer presents a threat, but instead presents a opportunity (archived). This comes as the criminal organization calling itself the US Government has gone on tilt threatening regimes around the world. while suffering from a pronounced decline in international influence and capacity for action.
Used for force projection in past decades, US aircraft carriers appear to be increasingly vulnerable to comparatively inexpensive anti-ship missiles weilded by regional powers and an attack on Iran by the USG would lead to a test of this hypothesis. At a time when the US, increasingly distant allies, and client occupation governments are strugging against non-state actors an attack on Iran is more likely to continue the USG's embarrassment streak than rebuild waning credibility.
Back in 2002 the Met Police in London engaged in "Operation Tiberius" investigating the extent to which organized crime groups affected their operations. The document leaked online, the full text is below: Continue reading
The Venezuelan Navy intercepted the US Coast Guard Cutter James as it was approaching Venezuelan territorial waters and made the US vessel change course before it could successfully breach Venezuelan waters (archived). Last May the USCGC James delivered six tons of cocaine captured through USG piracy operation to Port Everglades in the USG occupied territory of Florida, presumably for marketing and consumption in the domestic market (archived). In addition to engaging in piracy against pharmaceutical businesses, this US warship is equipped to serve as a floating command and control platform with a dock for launching and landing rigid-hulled inflatable boats out of zher stern (archived).
Matt Mullenweg's (WOT:nonperson) Automattic had gone on a purge of dissident blogs using their "WordPress.com" that fail to promote Pantsuitism. The most prominent casualty is the "Heartiste" blog which has been reduced to the following text:

The frogboiling of ideological diversity continues, and failing to enter into contracts with people instead of faceless "platforms" is a perilous bet.
