How To Bolster Banking Technology Infrastructure and Address Cyber Risks
By S.K. Selvaraj, Tripwire, Apr 25, 2016 [Excerpt]

Technology infrastructure (TI) at banks involves a dizzying array of things – from employee laptops and desktops, software applications, and hosting networks to networking and cabling linking offices around the world, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, sophisticated enterprise tools, data centers… and so on.

Just as a country needs its critical infrastructure for economic growth, TI forms the backbone for the financial industry. TI used to be behind the scene for many decades and catered to important tasks, such as storing financial data in mainframes.

However, it then became an enabler of business with rapid growth in communication bandwidth, networking and software products. With the advent of internet followed by the mobile revolution, infrastructure became even more prominent as it became part of consumers’ daily life. (more…)

5. Business Advisory Council
Aligning business interests and government policy

The Business Advisory Council (1933-61)

Whereas the Foreign Policy Association-World Affairs Center is primarily interested in fostering the foreign policy desired by the CFR, and the Committee for Economic Development is primarily interested in formulating economic and other policies which, through governmental controls, will lead us into total socialism — another, smaller (but, in some ways, more powerful) organization has (or, until mid-1961, had) the primary responsibility of infiltrating government: of selecting men whom the CFR wants in particular jobs, and of formulating, inside the agencies of government, policies which the CFR wants. This small but mighty organization was the Business Advisory Council.

Daniel C. Roper, F. D. Roosevelt’s Secretary of Commerce, formed the Business Advisory Council on June 26, 1933. (more…)

The World's 10 Richest Terrorist OrganizationsCommittee on the Present Danger

The Committee on the Present Danger denotes a series of hawkish US establishment pressure groups. The original committee founded in 1950, was revived twice, in 1976 and 2004.

Both the first and second incarnations of the Committee sought to use public pressure to influence debates already underway within the Government, concerning the NSC-68 document in 1950, and the Team B exercise in 1976, each of which exaggerated the Soviet threat. The 1976 Committee was the first in which the neoconservatives emerged as a signicant force within the hawkish coalition. They would go on to be the dominant strand in the 2004 Committee which attempted to apply a similar logic to the war on terror.

Foundation for Defense of Democracies

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a neoconservative think tank based in Washington, D.C., which was founded two days after the September 11th attack in 2001.[1][2] In its own words, it “uniquely combines policy research, democracy training, strategic communications, and investigative journalism. We focus our efforts where opinions are formed and, ultimately, where the war of ideas will be won or lost: in the media, on college campuses, and in the policy community, at home and abroad.”[3]

In 2004, FDD reincarnated the Cold War relic Committee on the Present Danger in support of the so-called ‘war on terror’. George W. Bush used FDD as a platform for the launch of his National Security Strategy 2006[4].

by Michael C. Ruppert, 1998

  • “TERRORIST” IS CONNECTED TO CIA, DRUGS AND WE MAY HAVE DELIBERATELY PROVOKED HIM TO ATTACK
  • WE MAY NOT WANT TO CATCH HIM EITHER

On August 20 [1998] the United States launched a series of cruise missile attacks against alleged terrorist camps in Afghanistan and a pharmaceutical plant in Khartoum, Sudan, both of which were said to be under the control of a rabid Islamic fundamentalist leader and arch terrorist named Osama bin-Laden. I did some checking on bin-Laden and what I found out leads me to suspect that the CIA and the U.S. government would rather have this evil terrorist hiding in the mountains of Afghanistan than answering questions which might embarrass them.

Shortly after the Russians invaded Afghanistan, the young and wealthy Saudi Arabian named bin-Laden rushed to Afghani mountains to fight a Muslim holy war against Godless Communism. Having inherited more than thirty million dollars from his father’s construction business he was in a position to lend (more…)

The Turd Blossom’s Chickens May Come To Roost
By Wayne Madsen, 2003

After many years as a privacy advocate and author of privacy books, I now reluctantly believe that there’s one citizen of the United States who is not entitled to any privacy or solitude, but should be subjected to a relentless campaign of intimidation, harassment, and knavery. In other words, patriotic Americans who believe in fair play should — within the bounds of the law — make this person’s life a living hell.

The target for such a campaign is Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s political Svengali, and the chief instigator of character assassination campaigns against those who challenge the policies of the Bush administration. Democrats, progressives and the liberally inclined must learn to fight fire with fire, Rove tactics against Rove tactics. This evil practitioner of political chicanery earned his stripes first as an apprentice of (more…)

Image result for they liveThe Birth of Satellite TV, 50 Years Ago
By Christopher Klein, 2012

In television’s early years, North American and European viewers had to wait hours, if not days, for tapes to be shipped across the Atlantic in order to watch footage from the other side of the ocean. That all changed 50 years ago after the launch of the first telecommunications satellite: Telstar.

On July 23, 1962, tens of millions of people watched a historic broadcast as Telstar beamed live transatlantic video into viewers’ living rooms for the first time. The age of satellite television had dawned.

In homes across Rome, people barely touched their dinners. London’s pubs were packed, but bartenders served nary a drink. Throughout Europe, more than 100 million people huddled around television sets on the evening of July 23, 1962, to tune in to history. (more…)

McCarthyism rounds on Freedom Charter 2014 (Excerpt)

Among the authors of the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen were wealthy merchants from Bordeaux, Marseilles and Paris, many of whom owed their riches to the Caribbean slave trade. Though it was amended at least twice, it is universally recognised as a significant statement of civil and human rights, the dubious moral character of its authors notwithstanding.

Thirty days after Madiba’s passing, Stephen Ellis, editor of Africa Confidential in the 1980s, crawled out of the woodwork to pronounce this challenge: “Maybe the South African Communist Party’s chieftains will now admit the African National Congress’s (ANC’s) key statement of principles, the 1955 Freedom Charter, was written by white communists. ” For the committed cold warriors, being a communist or an (more…)

Jon E. Lewis with Emma Daffern

INTRODUCTION [Excerpted]
The conspiracy theory “boom” has been rolling towards us and gathering pace since 22 November 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. That the most famous man in the world could be murdered in broad Texan sunlight by a “lone gunman” beggared belief. A sense of innocence was lost that day. It was beaten into oblivion by the succession of American figures who were also, supposedly, assassinated by “lone gunmen”: Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X. The proof that there was something rotten in the state of Western politics came in the next decade. Watergate.
Of course, there were conspiracies and assumed conspiracies before 1963: some considered the (more…)
