More Cyberterrorism today?

shutterstock_281495120

The news today is deeply disturbing regarding United Airlines and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) having major computer system shutdowns due to “technical glitches.”

Coincidence or cyberterrorism? This matches patterns of escalation from malware in our infrastructure, attacks on banks, hacks on companies like Anthem Blue Cross, our government under siege with the theft of records. It only makes sense that the hacks continue to reach new levels in their attempts at theft and undermining the American economy.

First thing this morning United Airlines reported that their systems were hung, taking almost two hours to recover. This “glitch” affected over 3,500 flights and hundreds of thousands of travelers throughout the air travel system

Then the NYSE halted all trading at 11:32am EDT as a major technical issue crashed the trading systems. The highly redundant and scalable systems implemented for trading don’t just crash from a glitch.

These both have the hallmarks of attacks, probing for weaknesses, resulting in tests to determine the capability to damage systems and our economy.

World War III might not be found with weapons in the sense that you know them. It is very possible a war could happen with just electrons, destroying our way of life.

I get more into CyberSecurity in chapter nine of my new book Liars & Whores: How Big Government and Big Business Are Working to Save Their Own Assets, Not Yours

UPDATE 11:16am PDT 7/8/2015 – The Los Angeles Times is reporting that NYSE officials are claiming there was no attack, “internal technical issue.” While entirely possible, it is actually more plausible that the highly redundant, highly available systems that they use were actually shutdown the moment a breach was monitored and the shutdown was a precautionary measure to isolate the incident before it could cause any major damage or theft. The hardware and software architecture used in the NYSE trading systems have multiple redundancies built-in, so an internal technical issue is nearly impossible.

Happy Independence Day July 4th 2015

Happy Independence Day USA!

239 years ago today, 56 brave men put their lives on the line (literally) with the treasonous act of declaring the independence of the 13 colonies from King George III. They were compelled to create a new country with individual liberty and freedom, without a central government or monarch telling them how to live their lives, with a freedom to pursue their own happiness and with fair representation of the people.

Celebrate with your friends and family today and think, if even for a moment, of all that we have and all that we can continue to create for future generations. And always, be safe in your celebrating!

Last year I did a special Independence Day show on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia, PA, the home of our Continental Congress. Take a listen HERE

President Obama’s Hypocrisy on Trade and Freedom

shutterstock_24809839

Time for Congress to stop selling out the American people and the time has come for all of us to finally recognize that President Obama really does not support Israel.

The vile, anti-American, Constitution-undermining, Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill passed and has been signed by the President (check out chapter 8 of my new book to learn more). Not only that, the President and his administration are openly refusing to support the pro-Israel language (another problem with legislation is mixing topics), which essentially blocks the anti-Israel, Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement. In other words, the President likes the corrupt TPA but not the part that supports Israel.

Who says the President hasn’t thrown Israel under the bus every chance he gets?

The one country in the Middle East that allows practicing one’s religion, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, women’s rights, children’s rights, LGBT rights, and an open economic system. Israel is the one country the President doesn’t support. He’ll go out of his way to work with theocratically genocidal Iran, to open borders and normalize relations with oppressive Communist regimes like Cuba who harbor fugitive cop-killers, and supported the pro-Sharia anti-everyone else Muslim Brotherhood Egypt, but he won’t support the one country who shares our concepts of universal human rights.

I grant that the disputed territories are disputed and international law is unclear because of the way Israel won the territory in the 1967 war with Jordan (legal), but didn’t formally annex the territory (puts it in unclear legal area).

But that means the President should continuously kow-tow to the anti-Israel groups? It should not.

And the weak-kneed Congress ever focused on funding their re-election campaigns handed over their constitutional authority to authorize foreign deals with a two-thirds vote.

For shame.

Shocking Surprise About Apple’s Solar Farm

Apple announced back in February its intent to spend $850 million on a solar farm in far southeastern Monterey County in California. I visited the site to share some stunning news about the plan and why it doesn’t solve any actual problems. Watch this video and see what the problem is with Apple’s solar farm and what we really should be doing.

And while I was driving the backroads of southeastern Monterey county, California, I was struck by the rugged beauty of the hills and had a nice visit with a couple of antelope.

Ethan, Binyamin the senior engineer, and manager/host Yishai Fleisher

Early Monday morning in California I joined Yishai Fleisher on his hit radio show with Voice of Israel in Jerusalem. We discussed the fuss over Rachel Beyda, a candidate for a student board position at UCLA who was challenged with the question: “Given that you are a Jewish student and very active in the Jewish community, how do you see yourself being able to maintain an unbiased view?” Do Jews and friends of Israel have a right to speak out and push back on the tide of liberalism?

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Speech March 3, 2015

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the U.S. Congress today regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the deal the Obama administration is trying to make. I make the argument that politics played a big part in this but PM Netanyahu is almost entirely right. What do you think?

Islamofascists Murder 12 for Exercising Free Speech

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 7.59.25 AM

Our core value of free speech has been under attack. Now free speech is physically under attack with the murder of 12 people, two of whom are police officers, at the offices of the satirical paper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France by Islamofascists claiming to be part of Al Qaeda.

From The Guardian:

France Info radio has been speaking to witnesses, several of whom are journalists working at a press agency in the same building as the Charlie Hebdo offices.

“We heard shouting in the street,” one man, Benoit Bringer, told the station. “We saw hooded men carrying Kalashnikovs enter the building. We called the police. After a few minutes we heard heavy firing, a lot of firing. We went upstairs on to the roof.

“And then after about 10 minutes we saw two armed men come out into the street. Three policemen arrived on bikes but had to leave because the men were armed, obviously … There was a lot more shouting in the street, a lot more gunshots. The attackers took off in a car.”

France’s President François Hollande immediately called the attack terrorism. These 12 people were murdered for offending Islamists by publishing Mohammad cartoons, among other offenses.

Charlie Hebdo reprinted the Danish paper JyllandsPosten Muhammad cartoons in 2006. I recently interviewed the cultural editor of JyllandsPosten, Flemming Rose, regarding his experiences coinciding with the release of his new book, “The Tyranny of Silence.”

Mr. Rose made a very important point in our interview. He said that we need to have insensitivity training in the interest of free speech.

You have the right to be offended.

According to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, apostasy is renunciation of a religious faith and blasphemy is something said or done that is disrespectful to God or to something holy.

The Pew Research Center has a report detailing the countries which outlaw apostasy and blasphemy in the year 2012. This is just the list with apostasy laws: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen.

Do you see the common thread? Islam. There isn’t one Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist, Shinto, Jewish, Zoroastrian, or Satanic country listed.

Now add in the fact that President Obama, like President Bush before him, has made every effort to call Islam the religion of peace. The majority of the followers of Islam practice the religion peacefully. The problem is that so many support these terror attacks.

For example, the Pew Research Center’s Muslim Americans found that 19% of American Muslims support suicide bombings (page 65) and 51% say that there is support for Islamic Extremism in the Muslim American Community (page 69).

Immigration is what The United States of America is built on. The U.S. already has the most welcoming legal immigration in the world. We allow over one million legal immigrants per year, which is more than all other countries on Earth combined. The problem is the U.S. has immigration policies which allow people who hate our freedom of speech to come here from their countries which ban free speech due to their religious sensitivities. Why?

There are two ways for us to address the horrible murders in Paris, France today. First, apply all diplomatic and cultural pressure on those countries listed above to accept freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech. Second, pass legislation to cease all immigration of people who do not support our basic freedoms.

All freedom loving people deserve protection from these murderers. And you have the right to be offended, get over it.

EDIT 1/7/2015 12:30 PST – These are the cartoons Charlie Hebdo published courtesy of The Huffington Post
