Over the last decade, journalists have held up Germany’s renewables energy transition, the Energiewende, as an environmental model for the world.
“Many poor countries, once intent on building coal-fired power plants to bring electricity to their people, are discussing whether they might leapfrog the fossil age and build clean grids from the outset,” thanks to the Energiewende, wrote a New York Times reporter in 2014.
International news warns New Zealand shootings are a ‘false flag’
Ever since the news broke on March 15 of two consecutive mass shootings at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, corporate media has been determined to establish that suspect Brenton Tarrant acted alone in the terrorist attacks that took the lives of 50 innocent Muslim worshippers and wounded 50 others.
While mainstream media has been predictably eager to parade the tragedy as another chapter in the wave of rising Islamophobia and right-wing extremism globally, they have put equal effort into conscientiously avoiding any evidence that contradicts the ‘lone wolf’ theory they decided on in the initial hours following the first mass shooting in New Zealand since 1997.
USAF Veteran and triple-amputee Brian Kolfage has already rallied 20,000 people in support of his battle against Tech Censorship.
War Veteran Brian Kolfage is on a mission to expose the danger that Facebook poses to the Constitution he gave three-limbs defending. He’s already rallied 20,000 and this week he’s taking his fight against Tech Censorship to Washington DC. Kolfage says that his fight started when he and his company, Military Grade Coffee, was targeted by Facebook for supporting Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his network of millions was instantly and permanently deleted.
“I’m going to fight this unamerican censorship in court,” Brian told the DC Chronicle in a recent interview. “I’m going to fight it in Congress and I’m going to keep exposing these Big Tech authoritarians using every bullhorn I can get my hand on.”
YOU WOULD THINK that after decades of analyzing and fighting email spam, there’d be a fix by now for the internet’s oldest hustle—the Nigerian Prince scam. There’s generally more awareness that a West African noble demanding $1,000 in order to send you millions is a scam, but the underlying logic of these “pay a little, get a lot” schemes, also known as 419 fraud, still ensnares a ton of people. In fact, groups of fraudsters in Nigeria continue to make millions off of these classic cons. And they haven’t just refined the techniques and expanded their targets—they’ve gained minor celebrity status for doing it.
On Thursday, the security firm Crowdstrike published detailed findings on Nigerian confraternities, cultish gangs that engage in various criminal activities and have steadily evolved email fraud into a reliable cash cow. The groups, like the notorious Black Axe syndicate, have mastered the creation of compelling and credible-looking fraud emails. Crowdstrike notes that the groups aren’t very regimented or technically sophisticated, but flexibility and camaraderie still allow them to develop powerful scams.
“These guys are more like a crew from the mafia back in the day,” says Adam Meyers, Crowdstrike’s vice president of intelligence. “Once you’re in an organization and are initiated, then you have a new name that’s assigned to you. They’ve got their own music, their own language even. And there are pictures on social media where they’re flaunting what they’re doing. The whole idea is why invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to build your own malware when you can just convince someone to do something stupid?”
