Reuters:

Security researchers at Kaspersky Lab said they have uncovered a cyber espionage operation that successfully penetrated two spy agencies and hundreds of government and military targets in Europe and the Middle East since the beginning of this year.

The hackers, according to Kaspersky, were likely backed by a nation state and used techniques and tools similar to ones employed in two other high-profile cyber espionage operations that Western intelligence sources have linked to the Russian government.

Kaspersky, a Moscow-based security software maker that also sells cyber intelligence reports, declined to say if it believed Russia was behind the espionage campaign.

Dubbed “Epic Turla,” the operation stole vast quantities of data, including word processing documents, spreadsheets and emails, Kaspersky said, adding that the malware searched for documents with terms such as “NATO,” “EU energy dialogue” and “Budapest.”

“We saw them stealing pretty much every document they could get…

Sad but true, your government loves your country more than you

A nation is separate from its government. Government & nation can often overlap, but neither needs the other to survive.

In Rogue

All over the world, individuals love to love their countries. Last month’s fervor over the World Cup is evidence of this, as is the slew of global revolutions where protesters proudly disobey police and government in the name of the freedom of their nation. brazil

Loving one’s country is a human habit formed from a desire to identify with where we came from and with a group. The nation is not a vague, intangible object but an active, dynamic identity that encompasses language, culture, and shared history. It is why the French are so… “French,” and Americans so proud of their 1776 revolution and individualistic history. A nation is separate from its government. Government and nation can often overlap, but neither needs the other to survive. Palestinians have a nation without a state and the Soviets had an all-powerful state with an effective ban on the Russian  national identity.

Often, when a national movement overcomes…

Why There Will Be No Revolution

“You don’t need a revolution to escape the system. You need secession. You need a withdrawal of support for the existing systems. You need to revoke the legitimacy which you extended to these organizations. You need to do it, and everybody else needs to do it. Nobody organizes this. People just learn, scandal by scandal, bureaucratic snafu by bureaucratic snafu, that the system is irreparable. It cannot be reformed. It must not be captured. It must be de-funded. The secret of liberty is not revolution; the secret of liberty is to de-fund the existing centralized order.”

“The Congressio…

“The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law.” – The New York Times

The New York Times Editorial Board started their Opinion Page about Obamacare’s CBO Report off strong with this propaganda. Does anyone really believe that 2.5 Million Americans (lowball) leaving their jobs is in the best interest of them or the country? While the relentless defenders of this unconstitutional act will say that the CBO report does not say ACA “kills” jobs, CBO Director Doug Elmendorf (who wrote that report) was quoted as saying “The act creates a disincentive for people to work,” while being questioned by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee Chairman.

Fittingly, in 1993 while working under then Director Robert D. Reischauer, analyst Elmendorf worked on a team that concluded President Clinton’s health reform package would cost much more than originally thought. This analysis helped cripple Clinton’s attempt to reform health care. Elmendorf left the public sector when George W. Bush took office to join Brookings Institute, and then became the director of their Hamilton Project in 2008, when then director Jason Furman left to join the Obama Campaign.
