measles vaccination order will face legal challenge
Children’s Health Defense ( #CHD ) is supporting a #legal challenge to this #dangerous, #unprecedented #overreach. While the City has unquestionable authority to control #disease outbreaks, it may not violate the bedrock principle of prior, #free and #informed #consent to all #medical interventions, including #vaccines. This is a #fundamental #human #right. The City may #quarantine, #isolate, trace contacts and strongly urge vaccination, but it may not impose such a #draconian #mandate without demonstrating necessity, #reasonableness, #proportionality, harm avoidance, #non-discrimination, due process and equal protection. The #Commissioner has #failed to do this; the City’s actions violate #NewYork State law.I am not. this is how #democrats operate- by #force and #violence or the #threat of violence. It's in their #nature.
CHD board member Mary Holland commented, "I am shocked that Mayor #deBlasio would resort to such #police-state techniques to control an #outbreak of #measles. I don’t believe the City’s actions will withstand legal #scrutiny." CHD Chairman #RobertFKennedy Jr. is confident their legal challenge will prevail.
I am shocked...

An Illinois bill that sought to empower average people to file lawsuits against tech companies for recording them without their knowledge via microphone-enabled devices was defanged this week after lobbying from trade associations representing Silicon Valley giants.
On Wednesday, the Illinois State Senate passed the Keep Internet Devices Safe Act, a bill that would ban manufacturers of devices that can record audio from doing so remotely without disclosing it to the customer. But after lobbying from trade associations that represent the interests of Google, Amazon—makers of the microphone-enabled Google Home and Alexa smart speakers, respectively—and Microsoft, among other companies, the interests of big tech won out.
In the bill’s original form, users could file a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General’s office that could lead to penalties of up to $50,000. But after technology trade associations, led by the Internet Association objected, claimed that the state’s definition of a “digital device” was too broad, and that the Act would lead to “private litigation which can lead to frivolous class action litigation,” the bill was scaled back.
In its current, neutered form, the bill provides exclusive authority to the Attorney General to enforce the Act, which means regular citizens won’t be able to bring forward a case regarding tech giants recording them in their homes.
Matt Stoller, a research fellow at Open Markets Institute, an anti-monopoly advocacy group, shared the lobbying groups’ statements on Twitter.
Just this week, a report from Bloomberg detailed how Amazon employs thousands of people around the world to listen to commands spoken to its line of Echo speakers in order to improve its Alexa digital assistant, sometimes even after users opt out of having their data used in the program. Amazon workers reportedly heard the terms people were searching for online, private conversations, and unsettling situations like a potential assault—all connected to the user’s Amazon ID number and personally identifying information like their name.
The bill arrived in Illinois’ House of Representatives today, but unless Illinois’ Attorney General makes privacy violations an active priority, it’s not likely the bill will provide much more protection for consumers.

On Tuesday, #JudyMaltz reported in #Haaretz that the #Israeli #Rabbinate, which controls #conversion, #marriage and #divorce in #Israel, is using #DNA #testing to #verify a person’s #Jewishness. Since a person who isn’t #Jewish can’t #marry a #Jew in Israel, which has no #civil-marriage, the #rabbinate is using the #DNA #test to deny people they consider non-Jews the civil right of marriage.
It’s a horrifying state of affairs. An #immigrant #advocacy center called #ITIM has filed six complaints about the #tests, mostly for former #Soviet #Jews. As #EladCaplan, the center’s director, told #Maltz, “
And yet, this shouldn’t #surprise us. For starters, this isn’t the only civil rights #abuse that the #Rabbinate, which is led by #ultra-Orthodox #clerics, perpetrates. In addition to refusing #non-Jews the right to #legally #marry #Jews in Israel, the rabbinate continues to #bar #women from getting a #divorce without their #husbands’ #consent, creating the #disaster of “chained women” who #languish for years, sometimes decades, neither #married nor #divorced…

Toller Kommentar in der taz über Kinderbücher, die das Thema Misbrauch behandeln und mit wohlgemeinten Ratschlägen daneben treffen. Diese Dinge können nicht oft genug gesagt werden.
Die harte Realität: Die allermeisten sexualisierten Übergriffe und die allermeiste Gewalt an Kindern geschieht im Vertrauten. Nur etwa 20 Prozent der Täter_innen sind für die Betroffenen Unbekannte.#consent
Wirkliche Prävention von Missbrauch ist nämlich anstrengend. Weil sie Dinge beinhaltet, die auch Erwachsene nicht richtig können und die im Alltag oft nerven.
Empfindungen äußern dürfen. Und die Erfahrung machen, dass sie dann nicht sofort infrage gestellt werden. Über den eigenen Körper, über Nähe und Distanz entscheiden dürfen. Nicht küssen, kuscheln, raufen müssen, selbst wenn Tante Anna beleidigt ist. Geschlechtsteile benennen und so selbstverständlich über sie reden wie über Zeh und Ellenbogen. Grenzen setzen und die Grenzen anderer beachten.
Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?
My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.
I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.
I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.
A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:
Wired is a popular website referenced on the Federation by many users because it publishes great tech-based stories. But how private is it?
Although it offers an ‘ad-free’ version for subscribers, normal visitors are ruthlessly fleeced for their data.
WIRED has embed deals (agreements to embed tracking codes into their pages for money or gain) with a staggering 171 third parties including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Vogue, GQ, Golf Digest, Bonappetit and Vanity Fair.
Some tracking beacons embedded on WIRED and captured by Ublock Origin
151 of these third parties are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, Add This, Scorecard Research, Adobe, Twitter Analytics, Typekit, Criteo and Quantserve. Aggressive trackers like Google Tag Manager (GTM), Add This and Turn are present here.
Below is a screengrab of the many scripts NoScript has blocked from the WIRED website, the 33 scripts, gifs and beacons blocked by Ublock Origin and a couple by Disconnect.
WIRED sets 25 short-term and 28 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 69 tracking companies) to set 26 short-term and 133 long-term cookies.
It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature enabled, so user details are sent to Google servers.
All WIRED servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.
Websites loading this many scripts/cookies are usually blacklisted by most users, not least because they drain a device’s battery.
WIRED claims that subscribing with them will mean an ad free experience, but I find it hard to believe that a subscription to WIRED will suddenly load a clean page without a single tracker retrieving data. But then I am not a WIRED subscriber. Please comment if you are and have no trackers.
Seen by some as a safe pro-privacy resource celebrating Free and Open Source Software, FOSSPOST lets its users down by digitally fingerprinting their devices and loading 19 trackers into a browser.
FOSSPOST has embed deals with 27 third parties, making its embed renting in the ‘low’ category, including Google, Amazon, Creative Commons and WordPress.
13 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Mailerlite, One Signal and the data-hungry caterpillar that is WordPress.
FOSSPOST sets 2 short-term and 2 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 3 tracking companies) to set 4 long-term cookies.
It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. All FOSSPOST servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.
Acquired by Yahoo’s parent company, Oath (a company that includes AOL), under the Verizon umbrella, in 2010, this is a popular reference source for researchers and Federation users.
Historically, Yahoo deserves some kudos as they were one of the few big tech companies that objected to sharing their users’ details with the PRISM
The Bush administration threatened them with $250k a day fines until they complied. Verizon bought them in 2017. Yahoo suffered the largest data breach in history in 2018.
The link to this NYT story is not embedded (consider blocking the GTM tracker on the site)
TECHCRUNCH.com fingerprints the user’s device and dumps 2-7 Yahoo trackers in their browser, depending on the page loaded.
TECHCRUNCH.com has embed deals with 27 third parties, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress.
15 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, WordPress, Atwola, Typekit, AOL and Scorecard Research.
TECHCRUNCH.com sets 4 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 4 tracking companies) to set 1 short-term and 7 long-term cookies.
It uses Google Analytics but interestingly enables the anonymization feature so some user details are not sent to Google servers.
All servers are based in the US so forget about GDPR privacy rules.
THE REGISTER .co.uk
Although a great resource with well-written and groundbreaking stories, it isn’t as private as I’d hoped.
There is no obvious digital fingerprinting but it seems to have gathered more Google syndication in the last couple of years, (9 of its 16 embed deals are with the Big G). 12 known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Admedo and the Amp Project gather data.
THE REGISTER sets 3 short-term and 4 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 2 tracking companies) to set 7 long-term cookies.
It uses Google Analytics without enabling the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. Although THE REGISTER’s domain is in the UK, both its data and email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though I am not a lawyer.
The Guardian .com
I’ve been sitting on this for a few years now but it’s about time I blew the whistle.
I first noticed the Guardian newspaper’s website was digitally fingerprinting its users’ devices when they published an article on, um, Canvas Fingerprinting.
That page has been removed since, but they still continued doing it, long before Facebook, though not before Google.
I’ve kept quiet about this surveillance because I admire the paper for its incredible journalism, especially exclusives like the Snowdon revelations, and its general championing of freedom issues across many sectors of society. But the hypocrisy has started to wear me down.
Some tracking items & widgets embedded on Guardian .com and captured by Ublock Origin
The Guardian has embed deals with a privacy-sapping 142 third parties, including Google, Amazon, Bing, Twitter, and, despite being one of its main critics, Facebook. 132 of these third party partners are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, AddThis, Scorecard Research, Blue Kai, Twitter Analytics, Rubicon, Criteo and Quantserve.
Some of the most aggressive trackers like GTM, AddThis and Turn are present here.
The Guardian also sets 3 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 51 tracking companies) to set 10 short-term and 131 long-term cookies.
Yes, we NEED the Guardian’s continued existence, but castigating Facebook et al while allowing them to track its users doesn’t sit well with me.
The website uses Google Analytics but at least enables the anonymization feature, so some user details are not sent to Google servers.
Although The Guardian’s data servers are in Germany, their email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though, again, I am not a lawyer.
In conclusion, I’ve given just 5 examples of popular sites Federation users quote in their posts.
I am NOT advocating a boycott of these sites but politely suggest we don’t OEmbed them, just feature a hyperlink and give readers the heads-up about these privacy concerns.
Alternatively, look for other sources featuring the same story. It’s also worth highlighting which websites do NOT add a tracker when we OEmbed a story, or have a low level of surveillance. Please promote those guys.

How can Federation users post more safely?
You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.
But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?
When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.
They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.
Should we ensure the website is safe before linking to it?
Actually some do. Posts that don’t feature a website’s images (with the OEmbed box unchecked as below) can actually protect Federation users from a serious amount of surveillance.
Some thoughtful users actually reproduce the article’s main points in their post, to protect their readers from visiting the site itself. They usually supply a link to the original content if one wants more detail and perhaps is protected with tracker blockers. So how do we know a site we recommend is safe?
Here are some privacy tips:
• Consider checking the page’s security/privacy before linking to it.
Using Tor, or a beefed-up Firefox fork or version (for detecting digital fingerprinting), and/or Disconnect, NoScript or Ublock Origin add-ons to reveal a multitude of trackers.
• There is usually more than one website featuring the same story. Consider picking the website with the least trackers and digital fingerprinting.
• Issue a warning in your post about any of the site’s surveillance methods and privacy issues you’ve detected.
• Embedding a picture/video could also make users vulnerable. Consider unchecking the OEmbed box.
In the next post I’ll give examples of a number of websites with low privacy and excessive trackers, commonly featured in the public feeds.

Does tickling require a consent beforehand?
The issue arose after Russell Brand said tickling shouldn't be allowed until the child is old enough to say yes or no and if anyone tickled either of his two children, he would punch them.
Daley told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that she tickled her own children, but if other members of her family wanted to, then they had to ask the children for their consent.
You cannot compare your own child to grown-up relatives of your family. Do people sometimes forget that there is a certain difference between those two groups of family members? It seems like they do.

Turn off location. PART 2
Apart from Edge, which has to be tweaked from the W10 OS, most browsers can have their location services disabled through their menu. I cannot list EVERY browser in existence here, as I have a life. If you have other browser location tweaks, please share.
1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.
4. Scroll down to the LOCATION section and select DO NOT ALLOW ANY SITE TO TRACK YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION.
There are countless versions and forks of Firefox so, to save column inches, here are the about:config settings. Firefox (and especially Tor) should have location disabled.
To check, type about:config in the address bar and press enter.
• Press the button that says "I'll be careful, I promise!" or “I’ll take the risk!”
Type the terms in the search box and toggle to the following settings if you don't already have them:
geo.enabled = false → Disables the browser geolocation feature.
WITHOUT THE [SQUARE BRACKETS][geo].provider.ms-windows-location = false → Disables windows location.
geo.wifi.uri → Mozilla has used Google's geolocation service in Firefox by default for many years, so check for any Google addresses that may be here. This is an example of how Mozilla has lied about some of its user privacy claims – it seems to be posting our movements to the Big G. Erase any Google address and leave this field blank.
1. Click the TOOLS menu
2. Select INTERNET OPTIONS.
3. Click the PRIVACY tab at the top of the window
4. Check the NEVER ALLOW WEBSITES TO REQUEST YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION box.
5. Click “OK” to save changes.
To disable Location in Safari, first click Safari > Preferences.
• Select the PRIVACY ‘hand’ icon at the top of the window.
• Under WEBSITE USE OF LOCATION SERVICES, select DENY WITHOUT PROMPTING to prevent all websites from asking to show your location.
Like the iOS, iPhone apps have to explain how they’ll use location data and must allow users to turn it off. Of course, access to this info is usually well hidden and when we find it it’s often written in brief, vague terms. To find LOCATION, do the following:
- Tap the SETTINGS icon, usually a cog or wheel
- Tap the PRIVACY icon, usually a white hand on a blue background
- Tap LOCATION SERVICES
• ALWAYS allow location (not recommended – it draws data even when it’s off)
• NEVER allow location
• Allow WHILE USING
The last one should be used for apps we think need to know our location or may be affected by disabling, although I’d venture there are few or none of these.
If you just want to block location on EVERYTHING just swipe that green switch in the pic above, to the left.
Always delete apps you never use. Limits spyware and saves battery.
Owned by Google, Android doesn’t stop snooping apps snuffle away location data, even when they’re turned off. It doesn’t even have the iPhone feature to turn off location when not using an app. After much criticism on this, on newer phones, the Big G reckons developers are only allowed to collect data “a few times an hour,” but if we don’t want ANY data collected, we have to do it from the phone’s main SETTINGS menu.
Older Androids are simpler to tweak
1. Open SETTINGS
2. Tap SECURITY and/or LOCATION
3. Uncheck ACCESS TO MY LOCATION box
4. Swipe GPS SATELLITES button to OFF
Like the iPhone, newer Android phones show a list of individual apps and allow us to turn off each app’s location button. Otherwise we can switch all location snoops off with the main button in APP LEVEL PERMISSIONS.
WIPE THE DATA GOOGLE HAVE COLLECTED
To be fair to Google, who collect data like bees collect pollen, they do have a portal where we can remove our location data (and more).
I am not sure if we can access all the data Google collects about us, or our device, if we DON’T have an account with one of their services, (#Gmail, Google Docs, #YouTube, Android, Google Drive, G+, etc) but it’s worth going through the data they’ve collected "to improve our advertising experience".
Obviously, we will be tracked within an inch of our life at Google central, but will have to suck it up if we want to clear our data. Be prepared for eyes to water and flabbers to be gasted.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO SEE THE UNITED NATION (a reprise)
(CONTINUED FROM EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CRYPTOCURRENCY)
TheShadowBrokers Monthly Dump Service - June 2017
Below is a copy of the last public message from The ShadowBrokers regarding a public offering of exploit tools for sale. Before showing the actual message itself, I’d like to offer comment on some of it’s contents as well as the time we now live, and in the process, hopefully make clear a widespread conspiracy that is no longer hidden.
I’ll note, far more than a Snowden, a Wikileaks, or any single party I’ve ever seen, I commend The ShadowBrokers in doing well to make the truth obvious.
Of their current statement, there is portion that I feel is especially worthy of note:
“Zcash is having connections to USG (DARPA, DOD, John Hopkins) and Israel. Why USG is ‘sponsoring’ privacy version of bitcoin? Who the fuck is knowing? In defense, TOR is originally being by similar parties. TheShadowBrokers not fully trusting TOR either. Maybe USG is needing to be sending money outside from banking systems? If USG is hacking and watching banking systems (SWIFT) then adversaries is also hacking and watching banking systems. Maybe is for sending money to deep cover foreign assets? Maybe is being trojan horse with cryptographic flaw or weakness only NSA can exploit? Maybe is not being for money? Maybe is being for Zk-SNARKs research? Maybe fuck it, lets be finding out.”
At this juncture there are a number of CryptoCurrencies that, as I described in the past (see direct following link), are “hacked”. https://joindiaspora.com/posts/3157863
Without going into detail, what is ultimately meant by “hacked” is that they resolve into a fairly centralized control. Centralized control leading to the potential for the market to be artificially manipulated. BitCoin suffers from this issue, Ethereum suffers from the issue, Zcash suffers from this issue, among a number of others. What is interesting is that many of the central actors, which I’ll give credit to ShadowBrokers for alluding to, behind the centralization efforts have a strange tendency of not only remaining fairly persistent, but seem to carry a strange interest in avoiding their own native State and otherwise public legal systems.
_*a recent addendum to my “Let’s talk Bitcoin” post on crypto-currencies may be viewed here: _https://joindiaspora.com/posts/9386416#85efab1027e80135f1860242ac110007 *
These persistent actors, while inclusive of State government agencies and businesses, are not in and of themselves any given particular State or Corp…but rather a globally interwoven collection of MultiNational Corps, States, Financial Centers, religious centers, and else.
So for example, as can be seen with both the "hacking" tools released by ShadowBrokers and what’s been shown in Wikileaks Vault7, the tools persistently target Microsoft systems like no other.
As I’d attempted to help explain and show back in 2012, https://joindiaspora.com/posts/1799228, Microsoft had KNOWINGLY modified Skype code and began intercepting Skype communications shortly after purchasing Skype for $8.5 billion in 2011.
As can be seen in the (afore linked) post, it’s originally linked contents were removed through threat of DMCA (and to literally abolish the entire joindiaspora.com domain) if the link to a torrent of the modified Skype source code were not taken down. (a link to the torrent is not being offered again for these reasons)
Shortly after this incident there was also a leak published by Die Ziet regarding the Intel chipset and TPM.
Finally, there were the Snowden leaks and their regards to the PRISM program which not only re-confirmed trojan propagation by Microsoft via Skype, but provided additional overview on extent of the greater surveillance network and also additional actors involved. Including but not limited to Corp actors such as Alphabet/Google, Amazon, Yahoo, Facebook, Intel, Hewlett Packard, among else. State actors such as the (USA) NSA, (UK) GHCQ, (GR) BND, (ISR) Unit 8200/Mossad, among else also were all involved in working partnership. Implicitly, there are private individuals such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Larry Page and Serge, Mark Zuckerberg, among many others that become what may be viewed as knowledgeable and witting colluding actors.
At this juncture in time, I would say that the leak of all leaks wasn’t a leak at all, but a collection of publicly published reports regarding the 2017 markets by none other than Goldman Sachs. As perhaps everyone knows, the U.S. stock market has seen all time record highs in 2017, and with the end of April the first quarter could be viewed. The S&P 500 showed some very peculiar things, and as noted, this amounted to what I felt very well may be considered the leak of all leaks…GLOBALLY.
In short, what could be viewed of the first quarter record setting S&P returns was that the top 10 companies of the year (thus far) accounted for 40% of the total gains. Further, that of the top 5 in the bracket, 28% of total gains were accounted for. Let me say that again, 10 companies, out of 500, accounted for 40% of the total market gains.
To make just the tip of the iceberg of what this means clear, it means that on average, of the remaining 490 companies in the S&P, there was an average contribution of %.122 to the market.
In short, when we view the average company in the S&P we are shown basically total market stagnation and that what had been hailed as “all time market highs”, was in reality, what (I’m fairly sure) may be the largest market crash in recorded history. The market was crashing and there existed a very limited few multi-national Corp monopolies that were gobbling up all the assets. NOTHING HIDDEN ABOUT IT.
A globally rigged market. NOTHING HIDDEN ABOUT IT.
When we view who the top 5 companies in the S&P are, we find some familiar names…
Alphabet/Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and (a bit to my surprise) Phillip Morris.
Key actors behind facilitating a global intelligence network surface once again…
this time, in the guise of leading market actors in a rigged market.
Is there any reason for surprise?
As if all this were not enough, there is then the January 2017 report from Oxam regarding world finance…of particular note, they found 8 people owned 50% of the world’s, as in GLOBAL, assets.
Of those 8, we again find some familiar names among them:
Bill Gates (Microsoft), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Larry Ellison (Oracle)
And then as of this week, yet again the same actors
I try to stress"Architecture" over things like “WHO” here. The ShadowBrokers, have done much to help publicly expose architecture by putting what had been publicly hidden means and methods out into the open. In doing so, they bypassed a very very centrally controlled GLOBAL media (as made obvious by the fact that a mere 8 people account for 50% of global assets among else) and granted the public the ability to openly view and judge the truth of “news” for themselves.
I will once more stress “Architecture” over “Who”, as while certain facets of the modern “Architecture of Empire” may now be openly clear, while various witting participants of the Empire may now be openly clear, the Empire itself largely bases itself on “encryption”. That is to say, it keeps many of it’s details obscured and in the dark.
Monetarily/Public Asset value holdings of 8 people (and more) may be readily identified, but it’s not as if those 8 people are the ones behind the creation and destruction of global currencies. I’ve found that when one begins digging into such pathways, while certain institutions may be seen, (Central banks, Bank Of International Settlements, etc.), the true actors behind those institutions very quickly tend to go dark and areas of finance are but one of the areas that quickly go dark.
Further, if matters of “who” are addressed without addressing matters of “how” their actions were achieved, the vulnerability to the social/individual dynamic remains in place for future exploit. It all becomes just a matter of when another adversary decides to exploit the vulnerability. Thus, it’s often understanding and fixing the “how”, not the “who”…nor even necessarily the “why”, that is the matter worthy of focus.
Through revelations that can now be seen by focusing on architecture, matters of this or that State political matter will hopefully properly show their illusions. Many of the global economic illusions can also be exposed as well.
Remember that markets are globally tied, the nature of multi-national corporations, that the NSA works with Unit 8200 works with German BND works with Google works with Microsoft works with Facebook works with China, and so on and so forth. Remember, as shown in CIA leaked tools, Western intelligence spoofs attacks to look like Russia (and you can give a good guess that Russian intelligence does their own similar spoofs). Remember that when 8 people hold 50% of GLOBAL market assets that such holding make bank claims of “too big too fail” look minuscule by comparison and that ANY world leader that portrays total economic sovereignty under such monopoly is at best inherently deeply misinformed and at worst wittingly lying and in collusion with such monopoly.
Why would the USG be working outside it’s own publicly official currencies indeed Shadow Brokers
As I have been prone to saying as of late, “There is no more conspiracy, everything is now out in the open. Now there is only our individual choice.”
(depending on the collective choice made, within not even a year, the VERY near future will be very very well, or we will head to something very very VERY bad. It is perhaps safe to presume, even if for those not aware of the choice they are now making, those that CONsent to the conspiracy are not going to like where it is immediately headed.)
Be excellent to each other, even when m00000st difficult, no fear, party on, and DO NOT OBEY! ♥ : )

Q: What is ZEC or Zcash?
Be looking it up. Zcash is making claiming bitcoin + privacy. TheShadowBrokers is not making endorsements of Zcash. Theoretically only party seeing payment info is theshadowbrokers and theshadowbrokers only seeing amount and encrypted memo field, no sending address.
Q: Is Zcash safe and reliable?
Fuck no! If you caring about loosing $20k+ Euro then not being for you. Monthly dump is being for high rollers, hackers, security companies, OEMs, and governments. Playing “the game” is involving risks. Zcash is having connections to USG (DARPA, DOD, John Hopkins) and Israel. Why USG is “sponsoring” privacy version of bitcoin? Who the fuck is knowing? In defense, TOR is originally being by similar parties. TheShadowBrokers not fully trusting TOR either. Maybe USG is needing to be sending money outside from banking systems? If USG is hacking and watching banking systems (SWIFT) then adversaries is also hacking and watching banking systems. Maybe is for sending money to deep cover foreign assets? Maybe is being trojan horse with cryptographic flaw or weakness only NSA can exploit? Maybe is not being for money? Maybe is being for Zk-SNARKs research? Maybe fuck it, lets be finding out. This month theshadowbrokers using Zcash. If being not good, then maybe theshadowbrokers doing different for July?
Q: What is going to be in the next dump?
TheShadowBrokers is not deciding yet. Something of value to someone. See theshadowbrokers’ previous posts. The time for “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours first” is being over. Peoples is seeing what happenings when theshadowbrokers is showing theshadowbrokers’ first. This is being wrong question. Question to be asking “Can my organization afford not to be first to get access to theshadowbrokers dumps?”
Act quickly is good chance Zcash price increasing over time
