Five Eyes, Six Eyes, Europe’s Eyes? Europe-Five Eyes Cooperation in the Face of China

(Mar 27, 2021)

In the short term, Europe may be able to shrug off the illegality of its data-sharing practices under the GDPR, and please privacy advocates with adequacy reviews, but in the long term the violation of Europe’s own data privacy crownpiece is sure to harm its international credibility.

RNA for Moderna’s Omicron Booster Manufactured by CIA-Linked Company

The firm only acquired its first commercial manufacturing plant in March 2021, located in Boston, MA and purchased from Sanofi, followed shortly thereafter by the acquisition of another separate plant located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Makeovers were announced for the plants, but little is publicly known about their progress. Prior to the acquisitions, the company had been subleasing a Bay area facility in Fremont, California. Reporters were puzzled at the time as to why a company with roughly 700 employees at the time had acquired a total of 599,00 square feet of manufacturing space after having only emerged from stealth less than 6 months prior.

In April 2021, National Resilience acquired Ology Bioservices Inc., which had received a $37 million contract from the US military the previous November to develop an advanced anti-COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatment. This acquisition also provided National Resilience with its first Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory and the ability to manufacture cell and gene therapies, live viral vaccines and vectors and oncolytic viruses.

Despite being in the earliest stages of developing its “revolutionary” manufacturing capabilities, National Resilience entered into a partnership with the Government of Canada in July of last year.

UNCLOAKED: Canada’s “Jekyll-and-Hyde” Masquerade as Nation that Supposedly Supports Pacifism and Progressive Principles

The only solution at this time is for American and Canadian peace activists to link up to challenge the military-industrial complex in both countries.

Detailed plans are needed to convert the U.S. and Canadian economies away from militarism and retrain workers and engineers who currently work in the defense sectors.

Restrictions on lobbying and foreign military sales should also be an urgent policy demand along with abolishing NORAD and NATO.

ECJ confirms legality of unfair corporate tribunals in EU trade deals

(30.April 2019)

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) today ruled that provisions for investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS, rebranded as ICS – Investment Court System) in the EU-Canada trade deal CETA are compatible with EU law.

This decision dangerously legitimises a mechanism that enables companies to claim multi-billion sum damages from governments that dare to stand up to their power. The ruling also comes as a blow to millions of citizens who have spoken out against this parallel justice system for corporations, most recently, more than 555,000 petitioners from all over Europe demanded an end to the ISDS system in all its forms.

Warum Kritiker gegen Ceta sind …

(31. August 2016)

Denn das Ceta-Abkommen beinhaltet – ebenso wie TTIP – einen Passus, der Konzernen ermöglicht, Staaten zu verklagen, wenn diese Gesetze ändern und dadurch die Gewinne der Unternehmen geschmälert werden. Diese Sonderklagerechte gelten für internationale Konzerne, die ihren Sitz in Kanada haben – und das ist bei vielen US-amerikanischen Firmen der Fall. 42.000 US-Unternehmen und viele europäische Konzerne haben Niederlassungen in Kanada und könnten europäische Staaten dann über die im Ceta-Vertrag vorgesehene Paralleljustiz auch ohne TTIP klagen.

Deutsche Ceta-Kritiker haben unterdessen am Mittwoch eine von über 125.000 Menschen getragene Verfassungsbeschwerde beim deutschen Bundesverfassungsgericht eingereicht.

Joint Statement on Further Restrictive Economic Measures: 26 February 2022

Specifically, we commit to undertake the following measures:

First, we commit to ensuring that selected Russian banks are removed from the SWIFT messaging system. This will ensure that these banks are disconnected from the international financial system and harm their ability to operate globally.

Second, we commit to imposing restrictive measures that will prevent the Russian Central Bank from deploying its international reserves in ways that undermine the impact of our sanctions.

Third, we commit to acting against the people and entities who facilitate the war in Ukraine and the harmful activities of the Russian government. Specifically, we commit to taking measures to limit the sale of citizenship—so called golden passports—that let wealthy Russians connected to the Russian government become citizens of our countries and gain access to our financial systems.

Fourth, we commit to launching this coming week a transatlantic task force that will ensure the effective implementation of our financial sanctions by identifying and freezing the assets of sanctioned individuals and companies that exist within our jurisdictions. As a part of this effort we are committed to employing sanctions and other financial and enforcement measures on additional Russian officials and elites close to the Russian government, as well as their families, and their enablers to identify and freeze the assets they hold in our jurisdictions. We will also engage other governments and work to detect and disrupt the movement of ill-gotten gains, and to deny these individuals the ability to hide their assets in jurisdictions across the world.

Finally, we will step up or coordination against disinformation and other forms of hybrid warfare.

The Emergencies Act, which replaced the War Measures Act in the 1980s, defines a national emergency as a temporary „urgent and critical situation“ that „seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it.“

The act gives special powers to respond to emergency scenarios affecting public welfare (natural disasters, disease outbreaks), public order (civil unrest), international emergencies or war emergencies.

ProtonMail, Threema, Tresorit and Tutanota warn EU lawmakers over ‘anti-encryption’ push

(27.01.2021)

Four European apps which secure user data via end-to-end encryption, ProtonMail, Threema, Tresorit and Tutanota, have issued a joint-statement warning over recent moves by EU institutions that they say are setting lawmakers on a dangerous path to backdooring encryption.

End-to-end encryption refers to a form of encryption where the service provider does not hold keys to decrypt the data, thereby enhancing user privacy — as there’s no third party in the loop with the technical capability to access data in a decrypted form.

On encryption and counter-terrorism, EU lawmakers say they’ll work for ‘lawful’ data access

(09.12.2020)

At the same time, such pressure isn’t exactly new. Albeit, the rule of crypto wars history is the access issue must roll around afresh again and again. And last month a draft resolution from the Council of the European Union triggered a fresh wave of anxiety that an EU ban on e2e encryption might be in the works.

Today’s Commission agenda is unlikely to lay such fears to rest entirely.

Perhaps mostly for its tortured language — with oxymoronical talk of “‘improved access” to encrypted information in a text that’s simultaneously peppered with caveats about “respecting the right to privacy”.

Behind NATO’s ‘cognitive warfare’: ‘Battle for your brain’ waged by Western militaries

The US-led NATO military cartel has tested novel modes of hybrid warfare against its self-declared adversaries, including economic warfare, cyber warfare, information warfare, and psychological warfare.

Now, NATO is spinning out an entirely new kind of combat it has branded cognitive warfare. Described as the “weaponization of brain sciences,” the new method involves “hacking the individual” by exploiting “the vulnerabilities of the human brain” in order to implement more sophisticated “social engineering.”

The federal government is under enormous pressure right now to show some progress on Crown-Indigenous reconciliation — in the wake of this week’s reports on undocumented deaths at the Kamloops Indian Residential School and fresh calls for Ottawa to move faster on implementing the recommendations of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

COVID-19 pandemic and biopolitics in Latin America

(17. AUgust 2020)

At the time of this writing [June 3, 2020], Latin America has become the new epicenter of the pandemic with growing number of reported cases of infections and deaths. Various governments in Latin America (Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil) and the Inter-American Development Bank have deployed digital technologies to control the transmission of the virus and to support testing and tracing. They have collaborated with private companies and universities in setting up mobile applications for geolocalizing and contact-tracing possibly infected people. Expectedly, these actions have raised concerns about the negative impact of massive surveillance.

However, while we recognize the legitimacy of these concerns, the problem in Latin America takes different dimensions than in Europe, North America, and East Asia. For the moment, the governments in the region have significant problems to launch and maintain massive digital surveillance apparatuses.

– Enable law enforcement access to content in a readable and usable format where an authorisation is lawfully issued, is necessary and proportionate, and is subject to strong safeguards and oversight; and
– Engage in consultation with governments and other stakeholders to facilitate legal access in a way that is substantive and genuinely influences design decisions.

Geheimdienst-Dossier: Coronaviren in Labor „genetisch modifiziert“, Zusammenarbeit von China und Australien

(03.05.2020)

Man darf annehmen, dass nun versucht wird, die üblichen Überschriftenjunkies weiter zu blitzdingsen und die hochbrisante, bislang dezent verschwiegene Zusammenarbeit von Stellen in China und Australien, sowie in den USA (siehe Universität von North Carolina) irgendwie wieder unter den Teppich zu bekommen und stattdessen eine Konfrontation zwischen den Vereinigten Staaten und China insgesamt hinzubekommen. Das hätte für die Weltbevölkerung wieder einmal die üblichen Folgen und könnte stattdessen die Machtarchitektur der internationalen Nomenklatura (z.B der Kriegslobby) eher noch stärken.

Aber – ist der Virus SARS-CoV-2 oder schlicht SARS 2 nicht irgendwie zufällig genau jetzt aus dem Hut gesprungen, bei so sensiblen Wahlen und Wundern hi und da im Jahre 2020, hätte dies ernsthafte Konsequenzen.

Unter Anderem wäre die unendlich bräsige Selbstgefälligkeit so mancher Funktionäre und Pressevertreter erklärbar, die bereits jetzt vor einer „zweiten Welle“ vom Coronavirus und unverhohlen vor einer Aufhebung des Ausnahmezustands warnen. Ebenso, warum z.B. ein enger Vertrauter des Machthabers im Iran starb, um ein Haar auch der britische Premierminister Boris Johnson (der zunächst einen Ausnahmezustand verweigert hatte) und ausgerechnet der libertäre U.S.-Senator Rand Paul, der sich ebenfalls gegen einen Ausnahmezustand gestellt hatte, als einziges Mitglied des Kongresses insgesamt mit dem Virus infiziert wurde.

Es müsste in Betracht gezogen werden, dass eine beabsichtigte, gezielte Ausbreitung, ein Streuen des Virus erfolgte, ggf. kombiniert mit anderen biotechnologischen Komponten, durch Stellen bzw Hierarchien mit den entsprechenden Möglichkeiten.

Und natürlich wären Billionen von Profiten aus der internationalen Biotech- und Pharmalobby futsch, die nun allererst ihre bemerkenswerte Hellseherei im Zuge der Pandemie-Simulation Event 201 im Oktober 2019 zu erklären hätten.

Ebenso viel zu eklären, hätte die U.S.-Seuchenbehörde C.D.C., die eine unbekannte Anzahl von „Corona-Tests“ verschickte, die selbst mit dem Coronavirus kontaminiert waren. Diese gelangten übrigens auch nach Europa und wurden dort verwendet, was nur einem einzigen kommerziellen Konsortium auffiel, namentlich Eurofins in Luxemburg, welches die britischen Behörden erst über die kontaminierten Tests in Kenntnis setzen musste.

The man had been reported to police as „an intoxicated male who was reported to be fighting with others,“ but the video shows him alone.

Five Eyes network contradicts theory Covid-19 leaked from lab

(04.05.2020)

There is no current evidence to suggest that coronavirus leaked from a Chinese research laboratory, intelligence sources have told the Guardian, contradicting recent White House claims that there is growing proof this is how the pandemic began.

The sources also insisted that a “15-page dossier” highlighted by the Australian Daily Telegraph which accused China of a deadly cover up was not culled from intelligence from the Five Eyes network, an alliance between the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Coronavirus NSW: Dossier lays out case against China bat virus program

It can also be revealed the Australian government trained and funded a team of Chinese scientists who belong to a laboratory which went on to genetically modify deadly coronaviruses that could be transmitted from bats to humans and had no cure, and is now the subject of a probe into the origins of COVID-19.

As intelligence agencies investigate whether the virus inadvertently leaked from a Wuhan laboratory, the team and its research led by scientist Shi Zhengli feature in the dossier prepared by Western governments that points to several studies they conducted as areas of concern.

While assisted suicide is permitted under certain conditions in Switzerland, Germany and parts of the United States, only Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands allow doctors to take steps to actively end a patient’s life, usually by administering an overdose of sedatives. In Luxembourg, that patient must be over 18, while in The Netherlands children can request euthanasia from the age of 12.

Medical Assistance in Dying at a paediatric hospital

(21.09.2018)

While MAID is currently available to capable patients in Canada who are 18 years or older—a small but important subsection of the population our hospital serves—we write our policy with an eye to the near future when capable young people may gain access to MAID. We propose that an opportunity exists for MAID-providing institutions to reduce social stigma surrounding this practice, but not without potentially serious consequences for practitioners and institutions themselves. Thus, this paper is intended as a road map through the still-emerging legal and ethical landscape of paediatric MAID.

Canadian Supreme Court To Cops: You Can’t Arrest Someone Just Because You Think Something Illegal Might Happen In The Future

Free speech protections have been given a bit of a boost in Canada. Simultaneously, the leash on the country’s law enforcement has been tightened a little. That’s how these things go. Personal rights and government power are often zero-sum. This case — dealing with the arrest of a counter-protester — ensures Canadian law enforcement can’t just go around arresting people for the „crime“ of not committing any crimes.
