1. Grooming gang rapist has court appeal rejected 

Shabir Ahmed was jailed for 19 years in May 2012 after being found guilty of a string of child sex offences.

The 59-year-old father-of-four raped an under-age girl above a Heywood takeaway where he worked as a delivery driver before sharing her among his friends so they could also sexually abuse her.

Ahmed, a Pakistan-born former taxi driver, raped one under-age girl twice and ‘aided and abetted’ in a third rape.

2. Council worker who fiddled housing list to get homes for illegal immigrants in one of biggest frauds of its kind is jailed

Ibrahim Bundu, who worked in a council’s homelessness unit, pocketed up to £4,000 a time for helping people jump the queue by faking documents and medical records.

He arranged for homes for members of his extended family, including his mother, wife and ex-wife, in a scam which cost taxpayers at least £3.7million. Bundu himself netted at least £50,000.

Investigators found he was behind 28 bogus applications in Southwark, South London, where more than 20,000 people are on the local authority’s waiting list.

4. Gmail now encrypts every email. No option to turn it off.

WASHINGTON — Iran is building a nonworking mock-up of an American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that United States officials say may be intended to be blown up for propaganda value.

Intelligence analysts studying satellite photos of Iranian military installations first noticed the vessel rising from the Gachin shipyard, near Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf, last summer. The ship has the same distinctive shape and style of the Navy’s Nimitz-class carriers, as well as the Nimitz’s number 68 neatly painted in white near the bow. Mock aircraft can be seen on the flight deck.

(It isn’t to blow it up for propaganda value. its to practice destroying a real one)

 

Thank you EDL Buck, Richard, Fjordman and all. More to come.

  1. #5 That is my thoughts, if this were for propaganda they would just use a plain barge but using a mock up of the carrier says they are getting closer to attacking in the Middle East

  2. Speaking as a council tenant in Southwark, No 2 is disturbing as most of Southwark councils housing workers I can afirm are either black British or black African. You can bet your bottom quid/dollar that this toe rag weren’t the only housing officer operating this scam. Trust me on that one.

  3. I have to add that many of these council workers drive very nice cars, seen the late model mercs and BMWs and big SUVs to know that no public servent could afford them if they were honest. Too many times.

  4. If you get pics of these guys in their expensive cars, I would be happy to publish the pic with the name of the elected rep and the cost of that model car in that area

  5. 4. WOW! Google standing up for our rights? I wonder how long that will last? Are they willing to ‘lose’ in kangaroo court over this?

    They dragged their feet but did turn in Tiananmen Square protesters after they were threaten by the Chinese government.

  6. Please, Eeyor, don’t post those pictures of cars.
    In the African Community driving a big new car is a status symbol. They are hocked up to their eyeball on HP, and a few become desperate when they can’t make their payments.

    It is the weakness of their prosperity religion to want what their pastor drives.

    “Almost half of Syria’s declared stockpile of chemical weapons has now been removed, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons says.

    The latest consignment of the most dangerous chemicals was loaded on to cargo vessels at Latakia on Thursday, according to an OPCW statement.

    A total of 11 consignments have been shipped, including all of Syria’s sulphur mustard, a blister agent.

    The OPCW aims to destroy or remove the country’s entire arsenal by 30 June.

    The Syrian government approved the initiative last year after a chemical weapons attack outside Damascus left hundreds of people dead…”

  9. Death toll climbs in Lebanon clashes (BBC, March 21, 2014)
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-26678791

    “At least four people have been killed in clashes between neighbouring communities in northern Lebanon linked to the conflict in Syria.

    The latest deaths brings to at least 21 the number killed since the violence erupted in Tripoli one week ago.

    Battles have raged between Bab al-Tabbana, where there is strong support for Syrian rebels, and Jabal Muhsin, which backs President Bashar al-Assad.

    Fighting between the two districts has flared since the Syria conflict began.

    About 150 people have been wounded in the clashes since last week, the Associated Press reports.

    It says gunmen with automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades continued to exchange fire after three people were killed overnight.

    A fourth person was killed on Friday.

    The predominantly Sunni Bab al-Tabbaneh, and Jabal Muhsin, populated mainly by Alawites, the heterodox sect of President Assad, have fought on-and-off for years.

    The war in Syria has exacerbated tensions between the two districts in the northern port city….”

    http://edition.cnn.com/2014/03/21/world/meast/iraq-violence/index.html

    “A wave of violence swept across Iraq on Friday, resulting in at least 38 deaths, police said. Most of the casualties occurred in Sunni towns and cities, according to police in Baquba, Ramadi, Mosul, Samarra, Kirkuk and Tikrit.

    • The deadliest attack occurred about 105 miles (170 kilometers) north of Baghdad in Anjana, where a suicide bomber drove a truck loaded with explosives into federal police headquarters, police officials in Tikrit and Baquba said. Officers were among the 14 people who were killed and 18 others wounded, the officials said.

    • In al-Dibis, about 186 miles (300 kilometers) north of Baghdad, at least two people were killed and 28 others wounded when two car bombs exploded near where people in the streets were celebrating Nowruz, a Persian new year festival marking the arrival of spring, police officials in Kirkuk said.

    • At least six people were killed and 40 others wounded when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest among dozens of mourners attending a funeral inside a building in central Ramadi, about 62 miles (100 kilometers) west of Baghdad, police officials said….”

  11. HOPEFULLY SOME OF YOU WILL READ AND HEED THIS…….DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE OR THE OTHERS……EVER!!!….AND NO……THIS RECENT “SECURITY FEATURE” IS A JOKE, GOOGLE HAS THE KEYS AND THEY WORK WITH THE NSA….FACT!!!!

    BELOW IS A REPOSTED COMMENT……….READ AND NOT ONLY LIVE, BUT STAY OUT OF JAIL.

    __________________________________________________________________________

    Hello there….its me again……Don Laird,

    This is a ridiculous article, and shows that we are as unsecured as ever. FACT!!!!

    The only way to be secure is to use a program like TOR, or PGP or even sending your message in a WORD.DOC with the security features activated and attached as a file to the message.

    OPEN WORD

    TOOLS

    OPTIONS

    SECURITY

    Then use your head and go from there, exploring.

    Or use snail mail to send a small disc or thumb/flash drive with an encrypted hidden container mounted by TrueCrypt contained on the device and the key to that known only to you and the other party.

    Or use snail mail to send a secured envelope with your letter inside. (old school bro!!!!)

    Or if you know you are being watched, send a Word.DOC, with security features activated and then simply write gibberish to about 100 pages in the DOC……..it keeps them busy for years.

    Gibberish like this:

    vjfhv kvhbeshgbthf vjaehvlajvldfh vladhfbvlhdfjlvhdlvjhadflvvdf
    chdfbvhsdfbvhsbvhsdfbvhdfbvhdbvlhbdfvhdfbvljbfvhbdfvhbad
    kjhc skjhfb oro87346575yowrbofyh3t8tygyorvqerfbqpp9438fy
    weckjsdhckqg iqrviygf34fhuof8ofbqolfhbvlwhrfolebfo44255ytgt
    ed k43ho296457050750yoyfbolhebvklhbyteynethnethnthetne
    lerh voervoyt5297ty270ty0274t2459puh9p258tu-258tp5hoqrf
    creh oq3rho243171-38-7y34705450t7rpfqbrfhblehblehfbh34r

    Send that shit and watch heads at Langley and Assholes International (NSA) explode.

    First they have to crack the security features on the WORD.DOC or the TrueCrypt and then they are faced with a brute force analysis of the gibberish.

    Keeps them chasing their tails for years.

    Here is some other points I wrote regarding prying eyes on a blog, click on the link below and scroll down to the two rather long winded but technically accurate tips and comments I left in regards to securing data. Take the time to read it, there are some good points and food for thought in there.

    http://www.slaw.ca/2011/09/22/is-it-possible-to-secure-law-firm-data/comment-page-1/

    Lastly, my computer is overwritten and reformatted about 15 times per month. I always use the Gutmann overwrite method.

    All my video cameras, memory cards and still cameras are reformatted about 10 times after I use them.

    I always use proxy servers and third party wi-fi for sensitive searches.

    I have no loyalty shoppers cards and have no, repeat no, repeat no emails that carry sensitive information that have any reference to me personally.

    And I always assume I am hacked and compromised at all times and in every way. Once you reach that point and become comfortable with encryption and proxy servers, life is a breeze.

    Not taking it to extremes but if you are concerned about access to a locker or file cabinet or room being gained by unauthorized persons and you are aware that simple padlocks are easily picked simply use a “game trail camera” without the falsh actived, very cheap and undetectable.

    You can also search Shippers Supply for “security tags” and attach these to duffle bags, suitcases, doors, cabinets, laptop cases and anything else you want to secure. The point is that these will not keep persons out but the broken tag will tell you someone was inside. (each tag has a randomly generated number) Another good idea is the use of baby monitors for your vehicle, in addition to vehicle alarms, use lithium batteries and turn the monitor on, any noise will be transmitted to the monitor you have at your bedside.

    We have now reached a point in our world where faceless corporate drones have access to your most intimate and personal details, where every facet of your lives and every single word of every single email is kept……..FOREVER………if that is not enough to frighten you into closing some of those doors and windows that snoops are peering into every day……well, God help you, you deserve everything you get.

    In other words…….its the lazy, the stupid, the uninformed and the uninspired that will fill Gulags to capacity. FACT!!!!!

    If you think all of this is paranoia, I sure you and Winston Smith will have much to talk about.

    I hope some of my ramble will be of use to a few of you.

  12. Thank you Don,

    Read your post.

    Reading your draft would be more revealing.

    Reading your life-data-trail moreso.

    Playing the man and not the ball… Power.
