The USA Police State descent into the human rights abyss

The insidious Patriot Act followed by


The Security Enhancement Act of 2003,

the infamous Military Commissions Act 2006,

followed by the John Warner Defense Authorization Act 2007 and,

which called for the suspension of habeas corpus (4th Amendment due process)

all of which gave the president the power to arbitrarily determine on his own, that any one of us was a “domestic terrorist” and going even further to

allow the president to strip us of our citizenship at his discretion with no oversight.

What Is Carrier IQ? Why Should We Care?

Put simply - and bluntly - Carrier IQ is a software package buried deep within Android by Samsung at the behest of Sprint. It has been in active use since the time of the Moment, if not before. The company that develops it, also known as Carrier IQ, bills it as "Mobile Service Intelligence". In their own words,






[T]he combination of the MSIP and IQ Insight lets you move seamlessly from broad trend data across many users, through comparative groups down to diagnostic data from individual devices. Now, not only can you identify trends, you have the power to drill down to specific instances, giving you the insight your specialists need to make a difference.



On its own, that description can vary from harmless, to worrying, depending on how you look at it. It's not until one drills deep down into the system and ferrets out every piece of the software that one truly knows what it contains. As some of you might remember, we took the first steps toward disabling the Carrier IQ software with the release of SyndicateROM and Xtreme Kernel 1.0. That, however, didn't even scratch the surface.



Carrier IQ's native libraries are plainly visible - libiq_client.so and libiq_service.so in /system/lib. During every boot, this service is launched - you can see it in Settings > Applications > Running Services as "IQAgent Service". These native libraries are called by non-native (Android application) libraries located in ext.jar (the client) and framework.jar (the service). Removal of these (rather obviously-named) libraries alone, be it the .so files or the libraries in framework or ext, will, obviously, break boot. So I had to dig deeper. To make a long story short, reference to the IQ Service and IQ Client were littered across the deepest portions of the framework, and some of the most basic functions of the Android system as we know it.



Carrier IQ as a platform is designed to collect "metrics" at any scale. What I found it to hook into is far beyond the scope of anything a carrier needs - or should want - to be collecting. Carrier IQ sits in the middle of, and "checks" the data of, SMS and MMS messages. It listens for and receives every battery change notifications. It hooks into every web page you view, and every XML file your device reads. It receives every press of the touch screen. It 'sees' what you type on the physical keyboard. It reads every number you press in the dialer. It can track which applications you use, what 'type' they are, how often, and for how long. It hooks into data sent and received.



I and my fellow users ask Samsung and Sprint - why do you want this information? Why do you need it? Why is the capability in place?



The only saving grace - if there is one - to this nasty, ten-legged mutant spider is that its logs are off by default. During the investigation process, I was able to enter its UI. Below are two screenshots of it.

BUSTED! Secret app on millions of phones logs key taps



An Android app developer has published what he says is conclusive proof that millions of smartphones are secretly monitoring the key presses, geographic locations, and received messages of its users.




In a YouTube video posted on Monday, Trevor Eckhart showed how software from a Silicon Valley company known as Carrier IQ recorded in real time the keys he pressed into a stock EVO handset, which he had reset to factory settings just prior to the demonstration. Using a packet sniffer while his device was in airplane mode, he demonstrated how each numeric tap and every received text message is logged by the software.



Ironically, he says, the Carrier IQ software recorded the “hello world” dispatch even before it was displayed on his handset.



Eckhart then connected the device to a Wi-Fi network and pointed his browser at Google. Even though he denied the search giant's request that he share his physical location, the Carrier IQ software recorded it. The secret app then recorded the precise input of his search query – again, “hello world” – even though he typed it into a page that uses the SSL, or secure sockets layer, protocol to encrypt data sent between the device and the servers.



“We can see that Carrier IQ is querying these strings over my wireless network [with] no 3G connectivity and it is reading HTTPS,” the 25-year-old Eckhart says.





The video was posted four days after Carrier IQ withdrew legal threats against Eckhart for calling its software a “rootkit.” The Connecticut-based programmer said the characterization is accurate because the software is designed to obscure its presence by bypassing typical operating-system functions.



In an interview last week, Carrier IQ VP of Marketing Andrew Coward rejected claims the software posed a privacy threat because it never captured key presses.



“Our technology is not real time,” he said at the time. "It's not constantly reporting back. It's gathering information up and is usually transmitted in small doses.”



Coward went on to say that Carrier IQ was a diagnostic tool designed to give network carriers and device manufacturers detailed information about the causes of dropped calls and other performance issues.



Eckhart said he chose the HTC phone purely for demonstration purposes. Blackberrys, other Android-powered handsets, and smartphones from Nokia contain the same snooping software, he claims.



The 17-minute video concluded with questions, including: “Why does SMSNotify get called and show to be dispatching text messages to [Carrier IQ]?” and “Why is my browser data being read, especially HTTPS on my Wi-Fi?”



The Register has put the same questions to Carrier IQ, and will update this post if the company responds. ®

TEPCO: Radioactive substances belong to landowners, not us

During court proceedings concerning a radioactive golf course, Tokyo Electric Power Co. stunned lawyers by saying the utility was not responsible for decontamination because it no longer "owned" the radioactive substances.




“Radioactive materials (such as cesium) that scattered and fell from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant belong to individual landowners there, not TEPCO,” the utility said.



That argument did not sit well with the companies that own and operate the Sunfield Nihonmatsu Golf Club, just 45 kilometers west of the stricken TEPCO plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

--------------------

When backed into a corner, guilty devils will try and do anything to evade responsibility.

35 Facts About The Gutting Of America’s Industrial Might

Did you know that an average of 23 manufacturing facilities were shut down every single day in the United States last year? As World War II ended, the United States emerged as the greatest industrial power that the world has ever seen. But now America's industrial might is being gutted like a fish and both political parties seem totally unconcerned. Yes, we will always need trading relationships that are fair and balanced with other countries that have economic systems that are similar to our own. However, the truth is that most of our trading relationships are neither "fair" nor balanced. For example, China manipulates currency rates so that Chinese products are much cheaper than they should be, they brazenly steal our technology and we let them get away with it, they deeply subsidize their most important industries and they exploit their citizens by allowing them to be paid slave labor wages. How in the world does that resemble the "free market" at work? Predatory nations such as China do everything that they can to distort the free market. So why in the world would any rational economist ever recommend that we should keep trading with other countries that are cheating us blind? After you read the facts in this article about the gutting of America's industrial might, hopefully you will get very angry. We need the American people to start getting very upset about these very important issues.




Both major political parties promised us that globalization would be wonderful for the U.S. economy. Well, in the first decade of this century less net jobs were created than in any other decade since the Great Depression.



The "free trade" polices of the globalists have been an abysmal failure. Tens of thousands of factories, millions of jobs, and hundreds of billions of dollars of our national wealth have gone to countries that engage in predatory trade practices and that exploit slave labor pools.



How in the world are American workers supposed to compete against workers that make less than a dollar an hour (with no benefits) on the other side of the globe?



If you support the version of "free trade" that most of our politicians are promoting, then you are supporting the one world economic system that the global elite are trying to establish. In this one world economic system, American workers will increasingly be forced to compete for jobs with the cheapest labor on the planet. This will continue to force the standard of living of American workers way, way down and it will continue to absolutely destroy the middle class.



The following are 35 facts about the gutting of America's industrial might that should make you very angry....



#1 According to U.S. Representative Betty Sutton, America has lost an average of 15 manufacturing facilities a day over the last 10 years.



#2 Sadly, it looks like this trend is picking up momentum. During 2010, an average of 23 manufacturing facilities a day were shut down in the United States.



#3 Since 2001, the U.S. has lost a total of more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities.



#4 According to the Economic Policy Institute, the U.S. economy loses approximately 9,000 jobs for every $1 billion of goods that are imported from overseas.



#5 The United States has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976, and since that time the United States has run a total trade deficit of more than 7.5 trillion dollars with the rest of the world.



#6 Back in 1979, there were 19.5 million manufacturing jobs in the United States. Today, there are 11.6 million. That represents a decline of 40 percent during a time period when our overall population experienced tremendous growth.



#7 Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.



#8 Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of all jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.



#9 The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.



#10 The Economic Policy Institute says that since 2001 America has lost approximately 2.8 million jobs due to our trade deficit with China alone.



#11 All over the United States, road and bridge projects are being outsourced to Chinese firms. Just check out the following excerpt from a recent ABC News article....



In New York there is a $400 million renovation project on the Alexander Hamilton Bridge.



In California, there is a $7.2 billion project to rebuild the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland.



In Alaska, there is a proposal for a $190 million bridge project.



These projects sound like steps in the right direction, but much of the work is going to Chinese government-owned firms.



"When we subsidize jobs in China, we're not creating any wealth in the United States," said Scott Paul, executive director for the Alliance for American Manufacturing.



#12 If you can believe it, the United States spends about 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.



#13 The U.S. trade deficit with China rose to an all-time record of 273.1 billion dollars in 2010. This is the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.



#14 The U.S. trade deficit with China in 2010 was 27 times larger than it was back in 1990.



#15 The new World Trade Center tower is going to be made with imported glass from China and imported steel from Germany.



#16 The new MLK memorial on the National Mall was made in China.



#17 Do you remember when the United States was the dominant manufacturer of automobiles and trucks on the globe? Well, in 2010 the U.S. ran a trade deficit in automobiles, trucks and parts of $110 billion.



#18 In 2010, South Korea exported 12 times as many automobiles, trucks and parts to us as we exported to them.



#19 Even in high technology products we are being destroyed. In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in "advanced technology products" of $16 billion with the rest of the world. In 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.



#20 China has now become the world's largest exporter of high technology products.



#21 Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Ten years later, the United States had less than 15 percent and China's share had soared to 20 percent.



#22 Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry was actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.



#23 In 2008, 1.2 billion cellphones were sold worldwide. So how many of them were manufactured inside the United States? Zero.



#24 The United States now has 10 percent fewer "middle class jobs" than it did just ten years ago.



#25 Today, American workers are bringing home a much smaller share of economic pie. Over the past decade, the ratio of wages to GDP has been declining very steadily.



#26 Now that millions of our jobs have been exported, there aren't nearly enough jobs left for all of us. Right now, the average amount of time that a worker stays unemployed in the United States is approximately 39 weeks.



#27 There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States today than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then.



#28 If you gathered together all of the workers that are "officially" unemployed in the United States today, they would constitute the 68th largest country in the world.



#29 According to one study, between 1969 and 2009 the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.



#30 As the number of good paying jobs declines, America's middle class is rapidly shrinking. In 1970, 65 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods". By 2007, only 44 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods".



#31 In the United States today, corporate profits are at a record high, and yet employment numbers have still not rebounded. Obviously something is structurally wrong.



#32 The Obama administration says that there are certain things that "we don't want to make in America" anymore. If you don't believe this, just check out what U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk recently told Tim Robertson of the Huffington Post about the Obama administration's attitude toward keeping manufacturing jobs in America....



Let's increase our competitiveness... the reality is about half of our imports, our trade deficit is because of how much oil [we import], so you take that out of the equation, you look at what percentage of it are things that frankly, we don't want to make in America, you know, cheaper products, low-skill jobs that frankly college kids that are graduating from, you know, UC Cal and Hastings [don't want], but what we do want is to capture those next generation jobs and build on our investments in our young people, our education infrastructure.



#33 Jeffrey Immelt, the head of Barack Obama's highly touted "Jobs Council", has shipped tens of thousands of good jobs out of the United States.



#34 According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades.



#35 One recent poll found that 41 percent of all Americans believe that "the American Dream has been lost".



Yes, it is fun to go out and fill up our shopping carts with "cheap products" from the other side of the world, but when we do that it destroys our jobs, our businesses and our communities.



Our addiction to cheap foreign products is incredibly self-destructive. Essentially what we are doing is that we are ripping apart pieces of our own home and throwing them into the fire in an attempt to keep it going. Eventually we will cannibalize our entire home.



And we never really think about what it is like for the slave laborers that make all these cheap products for us. The following is from an article in the Telegraph about what conditions at one major Chinese manufacturing facility are like....



So far, at least 16 people have jumped from high buildings at the factory so far this year, with 12 deaths. A further 20 people were stopped by the company before they could attempt to kill themselves.



The hysteria at Longhua, where between 300,000 and 400,000 employees eat, work and sleep, has grown to such a pitch that workers have twisted Foxconn’s Chinese name so that it now sounds like: “Run to your Death”.



If we stay on this current path, even more of our formerly great manufacturing cities will turn into post-industrial hellholes.



Once upon a time, I also bought the "free trade" propaganda hook, line and sinker. But then I opened up my mind and I learned the truth.



This nation is losing jobs, factories and wealth at a pace that is almost unbelievable.



Something desperately needs to be done.



Is there anyone out there that is willing to defend the emerging one world economic system that is stealing our jobs and killing the middle class?



If so, I challenge you to take your best shot. Leave a comment below and explain to the rest of us why we are wrong.



We need to debate these issues because the myth of "free trade" is absolutely killing us.



Please wake up and get angry about these issues America.

THe Hidden Controllers

"The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen....At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties."


--John F. Hylan, 1922, then mayor of New York City


"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent."

"There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."

It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question it's methods or throw light upon it's crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe... corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong it's reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.

Where's the hypergallic plume of gasses?


John Lennon on dealing with the war devils


Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) detected signs of a nuclear chain reaction at its crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant, raising the risk of increased radiation emissions as trace amounts of radioactive Xenon gas isotopes were discovered at the wrecked plant’s reactor No 2, officials said.

The issue at Fukushima is still ongoing. Nuclear fission in the core slags is still ongoing with no effort to contain the situation. All they had to do was bury the thing in a sarcophogus of boran, lead, and concrete - ala Chernobyl - and the whole thing would have stopped then and there. But no. All they do is spray water compounds, which then drain into the Pacific ocean, which then goes into the world's food supply chain.

-------------

Officials insist that the situation is under control, but environmentalists and scientists are saying the fission event show the situation at the quake rocked, tsunami hit plant are anything but. They have also noted that chain reactions could be occurring in other of the plant’s hobbled reactors.




A fission event involves the splitting of atoms, which, in the case of certain uranium isotopes, can lead to an uncontrolled chain reaction and emission of radiation.



According to Bellona physicist and executive director, Nils Bøhmer, and Dr Komei Hosokawa, head of the Department of Environmental and Social Research at Japan’s Kyoto Seika University, Xenon-133 and Xenon 135 gas were detected in reactor No 2’s secondary containment.



The presence of these gasses indicated fresh nuclear fission taking place in the hot debris of the melted fuel rods at the bottom of the container, said Hosokawa and Bøhmer.



“This clear indication that a nuclear chain reaction is going on in one the reactors is a very bad sign. TEPCO had said that the situation would be stable within nine months after the accident,” said Bøhmer.



“Any on-going uncontrolled chain-reaction is not an indication of a stable rector, and we could face a much longer period of instability until the reactors are safe,” he said.



A TEPCO official has confirmed a so-called “partial re-criticality” incident in reactor No 2, said Hosokawa in the information he forwarded to Bellona. Hosokawa said the term “partial re-criticality was “a new vague word for [TEPCO’s} spin practice.”



Other radioactive gasses detected at the reactor, said Hosokawa, included Xenon-131m and Krypton-85, which are likely remnants of the chain reactions that occurred immediately after the earthquake and tsunami.



Will the fission event effect cold shutdown?

TEPCO had hoped to bring the wrecked reactors at Fukushima Daiichi to cold shutdown by the end of this year, meaning that the temperatures in their cores would be sustained at 100 degrees Celsius. Evidence of a new chain reaction may impact the shutdown date.



Japanese nuclear authorities, however, say the chain reactions will not affect the projected shut-own schedule. Currently the temperature at the hot zones of the reactors is been sustained at below 100 degrees Celsius by seawater constantly being pumped in.



Hosokawa, however, strongly disagreed, citing the apparent present condition of the nuclear fuel in reactor No 2, if not others.



“TEPCO so far claimed that the melted-down uranium had formed an oval shape with a cooled-down crust. Their roadmap for the "cold shutdown, if ever, is based on this condition,” said Hosokawa. “Now that they propose a quite

different view regarding the condition of nuclear fuel, the roadmap vision [for shutdown] cannot be intact.”



Independent reports on Fukushima unsettling

The news the fresh chain reaction follows a recent report in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics journal, arguing that radiation fallout after the Fukushima catastrophe could be underestimated by as much as 80 per cent.



The report claims the registered contamination with caesium-137 depicts only about 19 per cent of the radioactive debris, which actually fell on Japanese territory. The rest was dissolved in the Pacific. It is believed that only two per cent of cesium from Fukushima will reach foreign coasts.



A similar report by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research released last week posited that releases of caesium-137 from the plant after the initial disaster was underestimated by half, and that fallout has reached some 40 percent of Chernobyl.



TEPCO in July admitted four months after the fact that reactor Nos 1,2 and 3 had experienced full fuel melts in the first several hours after Fukushima Daiichi was hit by a massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami on March 11, knocking out its primary, back-up and battery cooling systems.



Bringing the chain reactions under control

TEPCO began spraying boric acid on reactor No 2, where the new chain reaction is taking place, at 2:48 a.m. Japan time to prevent accidental chain reactions, according to a statement sent to Bellona from Hosokawa.



Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at TEPCO told reporters on Monday that, “Given the signs, it’s certain that fission is occurring,” Bloomberg news agency reported.



Matsumoto added that there has been no large-scale criticality and no increase in radiation – something corroborated by Hosokawa’s statements.



It is possible there are similar reactions occurring in reactor Nos 1 and No. 3 reactors, the other cores damaged at the station, Matsumoto told reporters.



“Melted fuel in the No. 2 reactor may have undergone a sustained process of nuclear fission or re-criticality,” Tetsuo Ito, the head of Kinki University’s Atomic Energy Research Institute, told Bloomberg.



“The nuclear fission should be containable by injecting boron into the reactor to absorb neutrons,” he said.



The Fukushima accident, the worst atomic disaster since Chernobyl in 1986, was responsible for the biggest discharge of radioactive material into the ocean in history, according to a study from a French nuclear safety institute.



TEPCO and NISA have declined to comment all three studies as of Wednesday.



Chain reactions possible in other reactors

“We are evaluating whether there are many reactions or not or whether its stopped,” Matsumoto said. The incident won’t affect its schedule of bringing the plant under control by the end of this year,’ Matsumoto told reporters..



Should fissioning have occurred the injection of boron will have stopped it, Tadashi Narabayashi, a former reactor safety researcher at Toshiba Corp. and now a nuclear engineering professor at Hokkaido University told The Deccan Herald news site.



What the reactors have weathered

Fukushima’s reactor Nos 1, 2 and 3, experienced hydrogen pressure explosions due to the fuel melts that occurred during the first days of the crisis. The explosions of the reactor buildings are credited with damaging reactor containment vessels.



Four of the plants six reactors sustained major damage, as well as possible damage to a spent nuclear fuel storage pool. It was several weeks before TEPCO was able to restore independent cooling to the reactor. Prior to that, the only resort was to inundate the reactors with sea water dropped from helicopters and fired from water cannons, leaving the plant to deal with thousands of tons of radioactive water and leaks.



The radioactive caesium that flowed into the sea from the plant was 30 times the amount estimated by TEPCO, according to the Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, which is funded by the French government.



The oceanic study estimates 27,000 terabecquerels of radioactive cesium 137 leaked into the sea from the plant.
