Political Ad Attacking AOC: ‘Beyond the Pale’

A Catholic nun is shocked that ABC would run an ad with “horrific images” during the Democratic debate.

14.09.2019 - 08:34 [ Scott Dworkin, Co-Founder @TheDemCoalition ‏/ Twitter ]

ABC can go to hell. Running propaganda with a picture of @AOC being set on fire, with dead bodies & skulls in the background, was absolutely despicable. People need to be fired over this. It’s ridiculous & evil. ABC profited off of it, during the #DemDebate. Shame on ABC. Shame.

Getting Upload Filters Wasn’t Enough: EU Copyright Industry Starts Stealth Campaign To Demonize Internet Companies Even More

The EU Copyright Directive was supposed to bring copyright into the digital age. Instead, it turned into an attack on the Internet ecosystem by companies that once dominated analog media, and which are still struggling to accept the arrival of online services with a global reach. For example, the upload filters that are unavoidable under Article 13/17 of the Directive are really directed against Google, which ironically won’t be much inconvenienced by them. Ordinary people, by contrast, may find their perfectly legal uploads forbidden without explanation. You might think the EU copyright companies would be pretty satisfied now they have this powerful new right to block uploaded materials using automated filters as their proxy, without needing a judge’s approval. Not a bit of it. The German Web site Netzpolitik has obtained a leaked document revealing a coordinated campaign by copyright companies to hammer home the message that Internet companies are today’s baddies:

Remembering Gene Crick, Digital Rights Pioneer

We pause this week to celebrate our longtime friend Gene Crick, a digital rights activist and former president of EFF-Austin, who passed away August 14 in Texas at age 73. Gene was a tireless advocate for free speech, a free, open, and inclusive Internet, and digital rights for everyone in the state of Texas. He worked for many years to bring free Internet access to communities, especially rural and underserved areas, and advocated for broadband access for rural communities.

Op-Ed: Bernie Sanders on his plan for journalism

Walter Cronkite once said that “journalism is what we need to make democracy work.” He was absolutely right, which is why today’s assault on journalism by Wall Street, billionaire businessmen, Silicon Valley, and Donald Trump presents a crisis—and why we must take concrete action.

A Very German Idea of Freedom: Nude Ping-Pong, Nude Sledding, Nude Just About Anything

“It’s all about freedom,” said John C. Kornblum, a former United States ambassador to Germany, who has lived here on and off since the 1960s, and was once shouted at by a naked German for not taking off his swimming shorts in a whirlpool.

“Germans are both afraid of freedom and deeply desire it,” Mr. Kornblum said. “But hierarchy and rules are so embedded that direct political or social dissonance is simply not thinkable.”

Interview zu den Landtagswahlen – „Konzept von Stabilität greift nicht mehr“ Halten Sie eine Jamaika-Minderheitsregierung für denkbar? Dass CDU, FDP und Grüne – sollten sie keine Mehrheit haben – Unterstützung suchen bei der Linken und der SPD?

Korte: Ja, das wäre eine moderne Art, geradezu postmodern, wie man eine Regierungsbildung in Vielparteienparlamenten hinbekommt. Die Labilität eines solchen Bündnisses, die man wagen müsste, kann unglaublich vitalisieren.

Teilerfolg für Indymedia

Anja Sommerfeld vom Bundesvorstand der Roten Hilfe erklärte dazu: »Dass die Strafverfahren sang- und klanglos eingestellt werden mussten, belegt erneut, auf was für einer dünnen Grundlage das konstruierte Verfahren gegen das oppositionelle Medienprojekt fußt. Dieser bedeutende juristische Teilerfolg bedeutet allerdings alles andere als eine Entwarnung. Jetzt ist der Zeitpunkt, die öffentlich wahrnehmbare Solidarität mit den Betroffenen zu verstärken. Die Rote Hilfe e.V. fordert die sofortige Aufhebung des Verbots von und ein Ende der Angriffe auf die Pressefreiheit.«

Browsers Take a Stand Against Kazakhstan’s Invasive Internet Surveillance

Kazakhstan’s actions were a drastic response to the slowly improving security of end-user devices and end-to-end communication online, but they and other countries could take even more invasive steps. Faced with just a handful of secure browsers, the government could next push their citizens to use a browser that does not currently implement this safeguard. We encourage other browsers to take the same steps and stand in solidarity against the government of Kazakhstan’s decision to compromise the Internet security of their entire population. What’s more, designers of user software should anticipate such intrusive state action in future threat models.

In yet another clear sign that the misty-eyed adulation of Greta Thunburg is definitely #NotACult, the BBC has done another fawning piece on the teenager, this time revealing the plastic bucket Greta will be pooing in for the next two weeks to stop the apparent imminent extinction of mankind. Greta will be pushing for a resolution at a New York Climate summit, to get there she’ll be crossing the Atlantic in a small ‘zero carbon’ sailing boat with no toilets.

Washington Post editor calls Sanders claim about campaign coverage a ‚conspiracy theory‘

Sanders and his campaign have begun arguing recently that a variety of news outlets, including the Post and the Times, are biased in their coverage of his 2020 White House bid.

„We have pointed out over and over again that Amazon made $10 billion in profits last year. You know how much they paid in taxes? You got it, zero! Any wonder why The Washington Post is not one of my great supporters, I wonder why?“ Sanders said in North Conway, N.H. on Monday night, according to CNN.

Boris Johnson could be the last prime minister of the United Kingdom

Boris Johnson, the UK’s new prime minister, wants you to know that he loves his country.
Specifically, he wants you to know that he loves the Union between the four nations that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Unfortunately for Johnson, this love is not always reciprocated.

Netanyahu is now Israel’s longest-serving leader. Watch some of the key moments on his rocky road so far.


To his passionate supporters, Netanyahu, known fondly by his nickname, “Bibi,” is an unrivaled world leader with cultlike status. They credit him with expanding Israel’s international alliances, helping foster its thriving high-tech industries and remaining a steady hand on security. For his fans, the allegations of corruption and impropriety that have plagued him are an underhanded attempt by his left-wing rivals to unseat him, as they have failed to do so at the ballot box.

The Last Thing Israel Needs Is Yet Another Election


Why doesn’t Mr. Netanyahu seek out different coalition partners? The centrist Blue and White party is expected to be the strongest opposition party in the coming Knesset and a unity government of Mr. Netanyahu’s Likud and Blue and White would likely be popular among Israelis, a majority of whom believe Mr. Netanyahu is the most fit to lead but don’t have much love for his past coalition partners, especially the ultra-Orthodox.

“It cannot conceivably be right that newspapers or any other media organisation publishing such material face prosecution,” he added.

California’s ISP Deregulation Law Allows Recording VoIP Calls without Consent

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been opposing A.B. 1366, legislation by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, which would renew a law that effectively shields a huge part of the telecommunications industry from state and local regulation. Comcast and AT&T law backed this law, Public Utilities Code Sec. 710, in 2012—and are backing its renewal now. Renewing this law would reaffirm that state and local governments cannot regulate VoIP—a term used to refer to any technology that allows you to use the Internet for voice communication or receive telephone calls over the Internet—for another decade.
