Sky News host Andrew Bolt says the idea that we can pretend China isn’t a threatening dictatorship is “dangerously naïve”. “Two years ago the Morrison Government set up something called the University Foreign Interference Taskforce,” Mr Bolt said. “Put simply it’s a group to stop the Chinese dictatorship especially from getting its tentacles into our universities. “Today we read for instance it wants students trained to spot interference threats on campus and report them. Academics working with overseas institutions will be trained to watch out for their critical research being stolen. All that is good. “But then I read this, that a confidential plan to force university to reveal a decade of foreign political and financial interests has been met with such fierce backlash that the federal government is now reviewing the proposal. “If universities are now kicking back … please wake up .

During the Second World War, there were many countries and groups who collaborated with Adolf Hitler, The Nazis and The Third Reich. Some countries were forced to after they were occupied, however there were other people who believed in Hitler’s ideas and they defected.

One such man was Andrey Vlasov, who was considered in the Soviet Union a rather brilliant military general, who earlier on in World War 2 had defiantly led the Red Army against the Nazis during the Siege of Moscow. Andrey Vlasov continued to command large parts of the Red Army, but after the Siege of Leningrad he defected and decided to betray his homeland. He was rejected the opportunity to retreat after his army encountered difficulty, and after this he became embittered against Bolshevism and Stalin. He decided to negotiate with the Nazis during his imprisonment, and convinced Heinrich Himmler to allow him to set up the Russian Liberation Army. This was a group of Nazi-sympathetic Soviet soldiers who fought alongside the Wehrmacht in their own divisions.

So Vlasov was leading a traitorous army for the Germans, however he would be captured. As the war came to a conclusion, he was captured and handed over to the Russians who placed him on trial. Many saw him as a despicable traitor who was once a proud war hero, but he was sentenced to death for treason. Along with a number of other high ranking members of the Russian Liberation Army he was executed in a Russian prison.

So join us today as we look at, ‘The BRUTAL Execution Of Andrey Vlasov – The Soviet TRAITOR Who Fought With The Nazis.’

By Jacob Mchangama, the executive director of Justitia, a Copenhagen based think tank focusing on human rights, and Joelle Fiss

Jacob Mchangama is the executive director of Justitia, a Copenhagen based think tank focusing on human rights and the rule of law and author of the forthcoming book Free Speech: A History From Socrates to Social Media.

Joelle Fiss is a human rights expert, researcher and analyst based in Geneva, Switzerland, and a member of the OSCE/ODIHR Panel of Experts on Freedom of Religion or Belief. Joelle has worked for Human Rights First and for the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament. 

An anti-hate speech law written in Berlin has been copy-pasted by authoritarian regimes from Caracas to Moscow.

Ein in Berlin verfasstes Anti-Hassrede-Gesetz wurde von autoritären Regimen von Caracas bis Moskau kopiert.

Since the adoption of the new German law, at least 13 countries—in addition to the European Commission—have adopted or proposed models of intermediary liability broadly similar to the act’s matrix. According to Freedom House’s 2019 assessment of freedom on the internet, four of those countries are ranked as being “not free” (Venezuela, Vietnam, Russia and Belarus, Honduras is not surveyed but is ranked as “not free” on press freedom), five are ranked “partly free” (Kenya, India, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines), and only three are ranked “free” (France, the United Kingdom, and Australia). With the exception of India, Kenya, Vietnam, and Australia, all these countries—as well as the European Commission—have explicitly referred to the Network Enforcement Act as an inspiration or justification for their models of intermediary liability.

Moreover, several of these countries, including Venezuela, Vietnam, India, Russia, Malaysia, and Kenya, require intermediaries to remove vague categories of content that include “fake news,” “defamation of religions,” and “anti-government propaganda,” and many of them include overly broad definitions of hate speech that go much further than the German law. A Russian bill signed into law by President Vladimir Putin in March is a good example. 

Seit der Verabschiedung des neuen deutschen Gesetzes haben mindestens 13 Länder – neben der Europäischen Kommission – Modelle der Vermittlerhaftung übernommen oder vorgeschlagen, die der Matrix des Gesetzes weitgehend ähnlich sind. Laut Freedom Houses Einschätzung der Freiheit im Internet von 2019 werden vier dieser Länder als „nicht frei“ eingestuft (Venezuela, Vietnam, Russland und Weißrussland, Honduras wird nicht befragt, aber als „nicht frei“ in Bezug auf Pressefreiheit eingestuft), fünf werden als „teilweise frei“ eingestuft (Kenia, Indien, Singapur, Malaysia und die Philippinen), und nur drei werden als „frei“ eingestuft (Frankreich, Großbritannien und Australien). Mit Ausnahme von Indien, Kenia, Vietnam und Australien haben sich alle diese Länder – ebenso wie die Europäische Kommission – ausdrücklich auf den Network Enforcement Act als Inspiration oder Rechtfertigung für ihre Modelle der Vermittlerhaftung bezogen.

Darüber hinaus verlangen mehrere dieser Länder, darunter Venezuela, Vietnam, Indien, Russland, Malaysia und Kenia, dass Vermittler vage Kategorien von Inhalten entfernen, darunter „Fake News“, „Diffamierung von Religionen“ und „Anti-Regierungs-Propaganda“. und viele von ihnen enthalten zu weit gefasste Definitionen von Hassrede, die weit über das deutsche Gesetz hinausgehen. Ein gutes Beispiel dafür ist ein russisches Gesetz, das Präsident Wladimir Putin im März unterzeichnet hat.

“Socially significant information disseminated under the guise of reliable messages, which creates a threat to life and (/or) the health of citizens or property, the threat of mass disturbance of public order and (/or) public safety, or the threat of creating or impairing the proper operation of vital elements of transport or social infrastructure, credit institutions, energy facilities, industry or communications.”

Any controversial opinion or criticism of the government could plausibly be covered by this overly broad and vague definition, which falls considerably short of international human rights standards.

The explanatory report of the Russian bill explicitly referred to the Network Enforcement Act, and, responding to criticism, Kremlin representatives argued that false information “is regulated fairly harshly in many countries of the world including Europe. It is therefore of course necessary to do it in our country too.” This is a clear example of how Germany’s internet law provides cover for authoritarian states attempting to restrict online content.

„Unter dem Deckmantel zuverlässiger Nachrichten verbreitete gesellschaftlich bedeutsame Informationen, die eine Gefahr für das Leben und (/oder) die Gesundheit von Bürgern oder Eigentum, die Gefahr einer Massenstörung der öffentlichen Ordnung und (/oder) der öffentlichen Sicherheit oder die Gefahr von Schaffung oder Beeinträchtigung des ordnungsgemäßen Funktionierens lebenswichtiger Elemente der Verkehrs- oder sozialen Infrastruktur, von Kreditinstituten, Energieanlagen, der Industrie oder der Kommunikation.“

Jede kontroverse Meinung oder Kritik an der Regierung könnte plausibel durch diese zu weite und vage Definition abgedeckt werden, die deutlich hinter den internationalen Menschenrechtsstandards zurückbleibt.

Der erläuternde Bericht des russischen Gesetzentwurfs bezog sich ausdrücklich auf das Netzdurchsetzungsgesetz, und als Reaktion auf die Kritik argumentierten Kreml-Vertreter, dass falsche Informationen „in vielen Ländern der Welt, einschließlich Europa, ziemlich streng reguliert werden. Deshalb ist es natürlich auch in unserem Land notwendig, dies zu tun.“ Dies ist ein klares Beispiel dafür, wie das deutsche Internetrecht autoritären Staaten Schutz bietet, die versuchen, Online-Inhalte einzuschränken.

In May, Singapore adopted the wide-ranging Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill. The law includes a vague definition of “false statements of fact,” authorizing a minister to issue directions to internet intermediaries that must correct or disable content. Prior to the adoption of the bill, a preliminary report referenced the German law. What might constitute false statement of facts? A 2018 report by the policy forum of Singapore’s ruling People’s Action Party highlighted a Human Rights Watch report critical of press freedom restrictions in Singapore as based on “deliberate falsehoods” used to “advocate political change.” In other words, the law may well be used to target human rights and civil society groups shining a critical light on the Singaporean government.

However, both the Russian and Singaporean laws pale in comparison to the sweeping category of illegal content covered by Vietnam’s draconian Law on Cybersecurity, which passed in 2018 and prohibits: “propaganda against the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,” “distortion or defamation of the people’s administrative authorities,” “psychological warfare … causing division or hatred between [Vietnamese] ethnic groups, religions and people of all countries,” “insulting the [Vietnamese] people, the national flag, national emblem, national anthem, great men, leaders, famous people or national heroes,” and “invented or untruthful contents causing confusion amongst the Citizens.”

Im Mai verabschiedete Singapur das weitreichende Gesetz zum Schutz vor Online-Fälschungen und Manipulationen. Das Gesetz enthält eine vage Definition von „falschen Tatsachenbehauptungen“, die einen Minister ermächtigt, Internetvermittlern Anweisungen zu erteilen, die Inhalte korrigieren oder deaktivieren müssen. Vor der Verabschiedung des Gesetzentwurfs wurde in einem Vorbericht auf das deutsche Recht verwiesen. Was könnte eine falsche Tatsachenbehauptung darstellen? Ein Bericht des Politikforums der regierenden People’s Action Party in Singapur aus dem Jahr 2018 hob einen Bericht von Human Rights Watch hervor, der die Beschränkungen der Pressefreiheit in Singapur kritisiert, die auf „absichtlichen Unwahrheiten“ basieren, die verwendet werden, um „politischen Wandel zu befürworten“. Mit anderen Worten, das Gesetz kann durchaus dazu verwendet werden, Menschenrechts- und Zivilgesellschaftsgruppen anzugreifen, die ein kritisches Licht auf die singapurische Regierung werfen.

Allerdings verblassen sowohl die russischen als auch die singapurischen Gesetze im Vergleich zu der umfassenden Kategorie illegaler Inhalte, die unter das drakonische Gesetz zur Cybersicherheit von Vietnam fallen, das 2018 verabschiedet wurde und Folgendes verbietet: „Propaganda gegen die Sozialistische Republik Vietnam“, „Verzerrung oder Diffamierung der Volksrechte“ Verwaltungsbehörden“, „psychologische Kriegsführung … die Spaltung oder Hass zwischen [vietnamesischen] ethnischen Gruppen, Religionen und Menschen aller Länder hervorruft“, „Beleidigung des [vietnamesischen] Volkes, der Nationalflagge, des nationalen Emblems, der Nationalhymne, großer Männer, Führer, berühmte Persönlichkeiten oder Nationalhelden“ und „erfundene oder unwahre Inhalte, die unter den Bürgern Verwirrung stiften“.

It is also problematic that some states, including Russia and Vietnam, have established (or proposed to establish) governmental entities responsible for notifying and ordering intermediaries to remove illegal content without any independent review or complaint mechanisms. When you combine the sweeping nature of the prohibited content with the lack of meaningful oversight, it is clear that these laws will serve to further entrench tight government control over an already restrictive online sphere.

Several of the laws or proposals we identified, including in the U.K. and India, don’t merely rely on a notification and takedown regime. They establish a “duty of care” requiring intermediaries to actively police and preventively remove illegal or undesirable content. Such a step may encourage automated moderation or filtering of user content through artificial intelligence and upload filters. This essentially poses the risk of reintroducing government-mandated prepublication censorship enforced by private tech companies. In the 18th and 19th centuries, European censors lost the struggle to keep up with clandestine publications and increasingly sophisticated printing presses. Consequently, pre-publication censorship all but died in the second half of the 19th century, only to be revamped and revitalized by totalitarianism in the 20th century. But in the digital age, censorship may ultimately be able to search and destroy undesirable content at a scale previously unimaginable.

All these developments suggest that the Network Enforcement Act has provided an important impetus for, and legitimacy to, models of intermediary liability that violate freedom of expression as set out in Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This development contributes significantly to the weakening of the already perilous state of internet freedom around the world.

The adverse consequences of the Network Enforcement Act were certainly not intended by the German government. In conjunction with the German constitution and commitment to the rule of law, the act provides safeguards absent from the most draconian laws subsequently adopted by other states. Indeed, several of the countries that have mimicked the German law had already implemented severe restrictions of online freedom prior to the German initiative and would likely have tightened their grip irrespective of the Network Enforcement Act.

Yet, the act seems to have provided several states with both the justification and the basic model for swift and decisive action. Unwittingly, Europe’s most influential country has contributed to the erosion of global internet freedom by developing and legitimizing a prototype of online censorship that can readily be adapted to serve the ends of authoritarian states.

In a world where both online and offline speech is under systematic global attack, democracies have a special obligation to err on the side of free speech. Succumbing to the ever-present temptation of fighting illiberal ideas with illiberal laws is shortsighted and irresponsible. Once democracies cede the high ground, authoritarians will rush in, creating a regulatory race to the bottom. This entails severe and negative consequences for free speech, independent media, vibrant civil society, and political pluralism, without which authoritarianism cannot be defeated, nor democracy defended.

Problematisch ist auch, dass einige Staaten, darunter Russland und Vietnam, staatliche Stellen eingerichtet haben (oder deren Einrichtung vorgeschlagen haben), die dafür verantwortlich sind, Vermittler zu benachrichtigen und anzuweisen, illegale Inhalte ohne unabhängige Überprüfungs- oder Beschwerdemechanismen zu entfernen. Wenn man die weitreichende Natur der verbotenen Inhalte mit dem Fehlen einer sinnvollen Aufsicht kombiniert, wird klar, dass diese Gesetze dazu dienen werden, eine strenge staatliche Kontrolle über eine bereits restriktive Online-Sphäre weiter zu verankern.

Mehrere der von uns identifizierten Gesetze oder Vorschläge, darunter in Großbritannien und Indien, beruhen nicht nur auf einem Benachrichtigungs- und Deaktivierungsregime. Sie begründen eine „Sorgfaltspflicht“, die Vermittler verpflichtet, illegale oder unerwünschte Inhalte aktiv zu überwachen und präventiv zu entfernen. Ein solcher Schritt kann eine automatisierte Moderation oder Filterung von Benutzerinhalten durch künstliche Intelligenz und Upload-Filter fördern. Dies birgt im Wesentlichen das Risiko der Wiedereinführung der von der Regierung vorgeschriebenen Vorab-Zensur, die von privaten Technologieunternehmen durchgesetzt wird. Im 18. und 19. Jahrhundert verloren die europäischen Zensoren den Kampf, mit geheimen Veröffentlichungen und immer ausgefeilteren Druckereien Schritt zu halten. Infolgedessen starb die Zensur vor der Veröffentlichung in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts praktisch aus, um im 20. Aber im digitalen Zeitalter kann Zensur letztendlich in der Lage sein, unerwünschte Inhalte in einem bisher unvorstellbaren Ausmaß zu durchsuchen und zu zerstören.

All diese Entwicklungen legen nahe, dass das Netzdurchsetzungsgesetz einen wichtigen Impuls und Legitimität für Modelle der Haftung von Vermittlern gegeben hat, die die Meinungsfreiheit gemäß Artikel 19 des Internationalen Pakts über bürgerliche und politische Rechte verletzen. Diese Entwicklung trägt maßgeblich dazu bei, den ohnehin schon lebensgefährlichen Zustand der Internetfreiheit weltweit zu schwächen.

Die nachteiligen Folgen des NetzDG waren von der Bundesregierung sicherlich nicht beabsichtigt. In Verbindung mit der deutschen Verfassung und dem Bekenntnis zur Rechtsstaatlichkeit bietet das Gesetz Garantien, die von den drakonischsten Gesetzen, die später von anderen Staaten verabschiedet wurden, fehlen. Tatsächlich hatten einige der Länder, die das deutsche Gesetz nachgeahmt haben, bereits vor der deutschen Initiative starke Einschränkungen der Online-Freiheit eingeführt und hätten ihre Kontrolle wahrscheinlich unabhängig vom Netzdurchsetzungsgesetz verschärft.

Dennoch scheint das Gesetz mehreren Staaten sowohl die Rechtfertigung als auch das Grundmodell für schnelles und entschlossenes Handeln geliefert zu haben. Unwissentlich hat Europas einflussreichstes Land zur Aushöhlung der weltweiten Internetfreiheit beigetragen, indem es einen Prototyp der Online-Zensur entwickelt und legitimiert hat, der leicht an autoritäre Staaten angepasst werden kann.
In einer Welt, in der sowohl die Online- als auch die Offline-Sprache systematisch weltweit angegriffen wird, haben Demokratien eine besondere Verpflichtung, auf der Seite der freien Meinungsäußerung zu irren. Der allgegenwärtigen Versuchung zu erliegen, illiberale Ideen mit illiberalen Gesetzen zu bekämpfen, ist kurzsichtig und verantwortungslos. Wenn Demokratien erst einmal die Oberhand verlieren, werden Autoritäre eingreifen und einen Regulierungswettlauf nach unten auslösen. Dies hat schwerwiegende und negative Folgen für die freie Meinungsäußerung, unabhängige Medien, eine lebendige Zivilgesellschaft und den politischen Pluralismus, ohne die der Autoritarismus nicht besiegt und die Demokratie nicht verteidigt werden kann.

Cuba’s detainment of activists from the antigovernment protests is “straight out of an autocrat’s playbook”, according to Former Pentagon advisor Jason Israel.

“You see these numbers you see there’s 500 and probably more than that missing and you’re sort of shocked,” he told Sky News Australia.

Mr Israel said the Cuba has a “court system that arbitrarily detains” and the judicial branch is a part of, and subservient to, the legislative branch.

“You watch human rights watch and its thousands of ppl each year that are arbitrarily detained even when these protests aren’t taking place.” “They reached their peak in 2015 with 800 people per month being arbitrarily detained in Cuba so this is straight out of an autocrat’s playbook.”

Since the opening of diplomatic relations with China in 1972, the American strategy of engagement, however well intentioned, has been deeply naïve.

While accepting America’s efforts to facilitate their country’s modernization, China’s leaders have worked to restrict any liberal effects on their political system. Now that China is strong, the Chinese Communist Party no longer believes that it must accommodate American concerns about its human rights record, military modernization, and foreign policy.

The first cracks to the Soviet Moloch started creeping in the late 70s. The centrally planned economy did not provide for the needs of the country with a population of almost three hundred million people.

Enormous resources were spent on the arms race and financing of foreign pro-Moscow politicians. The authorities still managed to hide the fact that the Bolshevist Titanic was doomed thanks to the Kremlin’s dictatorial regime.

After the death of Leonid Illich Brezhnev who had ruled the Soviet Union for 18 years, a chance for changes appeared. The next day after the death of the Secretary-General, citizens of the Soviet Union were announced about the appointment of a new Secretary-General. On June 16, 1983, a former KGB Head Yuriy Andropov took power over.

Als Aufstand vom 17. Juni 1953 (auch Volksaufstand oder Arbeiteraufstand) wird der Aufstand bezeichnet, bei dem es in den Tagen um den 17. Juni 1953 in der DDR zu einer Welle von Streiks, Demonstrationen und Protesten kam, die mit politischen und wirtschaftlichen Forderungen verbunden waren.

Er wurde von der Sowjetarmee gewaltsam niedergeschlagen. Demonstranten und Zuschauer starben. Dieser erste antistalinistische Aufstand hatte zahlreiche Ursachen, darunter der beschleunigte Aufbau des Sozialismus in der DDR, die damit verbundene Ignoranz der DDR-Führung gegenüber den Bedürfnissen der Arbeiterklasse einschließlich ihres Beschlusses, die Arbeitsnormen zu erhöhen, sowie weitere Fehler der SED.

Der Aufstand des 17. Juni wirkte als politisches Signal auf die Bevölkerung in den Ostblockstaaten. Der 17. Juni war von 1954 bis zur deutschen Wiedervereinigung 1990 als “Tag der deutschen Einheit” der Nationalfeiertag der Bundesrepublik Deutschland; er ist weiterhin Gedenktag.

7 Atrocities Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin Committed | HowStuffWorksCde. APRESOV!

Sheng Shicai’s letter made a depressing impression on our comrades. Only a provocateur or an hopeless “leftist” having no idea about Marxism could have written it. What could have happened that Sheng, having such an adviser as you, could have written us (me, Molotov, and Voroshilov) such a letter?

We are sending Sheng a suitable letter, but Cde. Svanidze will pass you a copy of our reply.

You should explain to Sheng the meaning of our reply and take steps so that the instructions given in our reply are followed.

I warn that if our instructions are not taken into consideration we will be forced to deny aid to Sheng.

The charter of the Union is not bad, but paragraph five about “equal rights” for women is not suitable for Xinjiang conditions and should be discarded.

On the Situation in Hungary
Information from Cdes. Mikoyan and Serov is read aloud.(3)

On Discussions with the Chinese comrades. (6)
(Khrushchev)

We should adopt a declaration today on the withdrawal of troops from the countries of people’s democracy (and consider these matters at a session of the Warsaw Pact), taking account of the views of the countries in which our troops are based. The entire CPC CC Politburo supports this position. One document for the Hungarians, and another for the participants of the Warsaw Pact. On Rokossowski—I said to Gomulka that this matter is for you (the Poles) to decide.(7)

Cde. Bulganin—The Chinese cdes. have an incorrect impression of our relations with the countries of people’s democracy. On our appeal to the Hungarians—we should prepare it. A declaration should be prepared.

Cde. Molotov—Today an appeal must be written to the Hungarian people so that they promptly enter into negotiations about the withdrawal of troops. There is the Warsaw Pact. This must be considered with other countries. On the view of the Chinese comrades—they suggest that relations with the countries of the socialist camp be built on the principles of Pancha Shila.(8) Relations along interstate lines are on one basis and interparty relations on another.

Top Secret

Present: V. M. Molotov, A. A. Zhdanov, G. M. Malenkov, V. S. Semenov (SVAG [Soviet Military Administration in Germany]), and interpreters – G. Ya. Korotkevich and F. Elsner.

PIECK thanked I. V. Stalin for the welcome and also for the aid which the Soviet Military Administration in Germany gives the SED [Socialist Unity Party].

I. V. STALIN asks whether the Military Administration is actually giving aid or if this is a compliment.

PIECK and GROTEWOHL say that they are actually receiving aid.

STALIN, joking, asks again, does this mean that they don’t just oppress you, but also give aid?

PIECK, laughing, confirms [this]. Then he says that he will describe political issues and Grotewohl economic [ones]. In Pieck’s words, the exacerbation of the conflicts between the Allies on the issues of an imperialistic or democratic peace with Germany, the unity or dismemberment of Germany, and its democratic development or colonialization by means of the Marshall Plan are influencing the mood of the German people. These conflicts are not so clear to the broad masses but they are influencing the mood of the masses, especially in Berlin. The Western powers are trying to influence the population and direct it against the USSR, arousing hostility against communism which supposedly wants to crush [poglotit’] the people, take the Germans’ private property away from them, etc.

STALIN laughs.

CHINESE AUTHORITIES ARRESTED AND DISAPPEARED MY FATHER

True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.

A young Chinese woman in red aims her bow and arrow off screen.

The last time I saw my father was in 2013. We were on our way to Indiana University, where he was scheduled to begin a fellowship. He was arrested before boarding the plane and taken away. A mild-mannered, studious professor of economics, his life’s work was using his influence to promote peaceful coexistence between the Uyghur people—our people—and the Han ethnic majority that rules China. That went against the interest of the Chinese Communist government, and in 2014 they sentenced him to life in prison. The last time I spoke to him was the day before his arrest. I still don’t know if he is even alive—the last time I heard anything of his whereabouts was in 2017.

In many ways, I can identify with the title character in Disney’s Mulan films, based on the ancient Chinese legend. In the story, as China calls up the men from every family to defend against a foreign invasion, Mulan dresses as a boy and fights in the place of her father, who is too old to go himself. As a child growing up in Beijing, I loved the legend and the fun Disney cartoon version produced in 1998. Little did I know that I, like Mulan, would later be fighting for my own father—helping to carry on his work while he is unjustly imprisoned. I hope, like her, to achieve victory by one day gaining my father’s release.

Today, sadly, a new retelling of the Mulan story, once again by Disney, is profiting from the oppression of my people. This live-action version was filmed partly in the Uyghur region—officially known in China as “Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region”—where the Chinese Communist government is holding at least one million members of Turkic ethnic minorities in concentration camps as part of a coordinated genocidal campaign. My father, if he is alive, may be among them—nobody will allow us to visit him, or even tell us where he is.

Where Have All The Communist KGB and STASI Spies Gone ?

Fallout 4 - RED SCARE - FULL QUEST Mod Playthrough - COMMUNIST SPY ...

A look back: On Normannenstrasse in East Berlin, in the core of a standard white collar class neighborhood, stands a gigantic office complex: 41 solid structures as inauspiciously utilitarian as the condo towers that encompass them. Nine months prior it was the base camp of East Germany’s Ministry for State Security – the Staatsicherheit – or Stasi, maybe the most modern and sweeping undercover work association at any point made. Be that as it may, among January and March this year, as East Germany’s Communist Government at long last crumbled, the Stasi was officially disbanded. Today, the solid fortress is abandoned, its 10,000 rooms fixed, its operators bolted out.

From these dreary structures, 34,000 officials ran the Stasi’s 39 divisions. The staff included 2,100 operators alloted nonstop to perusing mail passed on from post workplaces and territorial Stasi base camp, 5,000 specialists liable for following suspects, and 6,000 agents whose solitary employment was tuning in to private phone discussions.

Primary Department VIII, otherwise called Observation, kept a nearby watch on residents through a broad system of sources in neighborhoods, schools, libraries and even service stations. Principle Department II – Counterintelligence – did electronic reconnaissance of outside ambassadors, specialists and writers and put spies in their workplaces, homes and lodgings. The Stasi even had a division to keep an eye on other Stasi individuals and sources.

”We are as yet getting stuns from what we discover,” says the movie producer Klaus Wendler, a representative for an East German Government advisory group that is currently filtering through the Stasi’s 5,000,000 documents. ”Performers had to keep an eye on individual artists, understudies were pressured into keeping an eye on companions, and youngsters were tricked into keeping an eye on their folks.”

With the disbanding of the Stasi, 85,000 full-time officials lost their positions essentially for the time being. Close to 10,000 have since discovered productive business, a large portion of them in different Government services, remembering 2,000 for the Ministry of the Interior, which some time ago administered the Stasi. The rest have joined the developing positions of East Germany’s jobless; some make due with standard joblessness benefits, while others get no Government remuneration by any stretch of the imagination. Many are upset at ending up barred, even alienated, by their kindred residents.

Abroad, the greater part of the Stasi’s 2,500 profession officials in consulates and missions no longer have a covert operative central command to answer to, and its untold a large number of independent covert government agents no longer get cash from their previous experts. West German insight officials gauge that there are exactly 5,000 agents in West Germany today, 500 of them ”top operators.” Eighty of those are thought to have entered the most elevated echelons of the military and Government, West German authorities state, including knowledge offices.

In spite of emotional political changes in Europe, West German insight authorities dread that not every one of these covert agents have changed their loyalties. Exceptionally restrained and still covert, some are as yet gathering and transferring data to Soviet knowledge organs, the West Germans accept. Others, they think, are essentially sticking around for their chance, holding back to be enacted.

The Stasi has for some time been perceived as one of the best insight benefits on the planet, in a similar alliance as those of Israel and France. By the by, in the course of the most recent seven months, West German and American knowledge authorities have been astounded to find the size of its outside tasks, arranged until his retirement three years prior by the scandalous Markus Wolf. Until 1979, Western knowledge operators didn’t have a present photo of ”the man without a face.” But as of late he has ventured out from the shadows. Today, a smash hit creator, Wolf talks uninhibitedly of his effective infiltration of the West German insight and military over a time of over 30 years. What he doesn’t talk about is psychological oppression.

Over the most recent two months, frightening disclosures have become visible specifying the Stasi’s connects to an assortment of fear based oppressor gatherings, quite the extreme left Red Army Faction, eight of whose individuals were captured in June. With the assistance of the Stasi, they had been given new personalities and occupations in East Germany in the wake of doing psychological militant activities in the 1970’s and 80’s. The Stasi has additionally been ensnared in the Libyan-coordinated bombarding of the La Belle disco in West Germany in 1986: According to new data from witnesses and held onto documents, Stasi operators helped transport the explosives to West Berlin that brought about the passings of two American fighters.

In East Germany, as well, the Stasi, albeit formally nonexistent, stays a danger. In late June, new divulgences uncovered that in 1986, as the Soviet Union started changing its general public and the East German economy kept on decaying, the Stasi, predicting turmoil – however not the finish of the divider – set in excess of 2,000 individuals from a world class mystery team into the most significant levels of East German Government divisions, organizations and colleges. Another 500 government agents were dispatched to West Germany. East German authorities state that a large portion of them are still set up, their characters obscure, and suspect that they are compelled to hold up out any political disturbance.

Insight authorities are in a race to carry the most exceedingly terrible guilty parties to equity before they go for all time underground or sign up with new bosses. The pursuit is suggestive, says one American ambassador in Berlin, of a period in the no so distant past: ”Ferreting out the government operatives, psychological oppressors and Stasi operators is comparable to the quest for the Nazis and their teammates after they endeavored to vanish into German culture toward the finish of the war.”

On Friday morning, only 48 hours from money related unification on July 1, East Berlin is bursting at the seams with energy. Global camera teams and columnists have attacked the city to catch the beginning of another time. Be that as it may, in his office, just strides from the Volkskammer, or Parliament, Peter-Michael Diestel, East Germany’s 38-year-old Interior Minister, ponders the insult inheritance of the past. ”My crucial,” says just, ”is to destroy the Stasi.”

That assignment has tumbled to an impossible competitor: a previous dairy animals draining victor, weight lifter (he can seat press 420 pounds) and infrequent legal counselor who accepted the position of Interior Minister to a great extent in light of the fact that nobody else needed it.

Diestel, a local of Leipzig, has been occupied since getting to work in April. He has enrolled the collaboration of huge quantities of previous Stasi officials and, utilizing data from witnesses and Stasi records, has attempted to acquire ”independent” agents, either by extending to them employment opportunities or persuading them that the Stasi is done. He has gone along key data on fear mongers and sources to West German knowledge offices, and helped organize the capture in June of the Red Army Faction psychological oppressors. At last, Diestel built up the Stasi’s complicity in the La Belle disco bombarding.

Diestel is exploring a forlorn course, subject to furious assaults from both the left and right in East Germany, extraordinary weight from West German authorities, and week after week requires his acquiescence by the German Social Union, a traditionalist gathering in East Germany’s overseeing alliance. Due to day by day dangers against his life, the police monitor his significant other and three little youngsters nonstop. Says Peter Pragal, East Berlin reporter for the week by week magazine Stern: ”He has the hardest activity in Germany, East or West.”

Other than its full-time officials, selected from the best and most brilliant in East German culture, the Stasi had 150,000 dynamic sources and 500,000 to 2 million low maintenance witnesses in East Germany. Its land property alone – including the huge fortresslike complex in East Berlin and Stasi’s in excess of 2,000 structures, homes, dugouts, havens, medical clinics, and resorts all through East Germany – have been esteemed in the billions of dollars. Up until this point, Government agents attempting to take stock of the Stasi have counted 23,000 vehicles and trucks and 250,000 weapons, including submachine firearms, guns, rifles and explosive launchers.

The productive Stasi machine accumulated broad dossiers on in excess of 5 million East Germans – 33% of the populace – that included data as close as sexual propensities and as everyday as books settled up with the library. A great many calls were recorded; condos were pester and unlawfully looked (the Stasi would orchestrate to have suspects kept late at their employments). One protester as of late found that a small scale listening gadget fit for transmitting three miles had been sewn into his jacket neckline.

Residents were powerless against the Stasi’s Orwellian interruption whenever and anyplace – in their condos, industrial facilities, houses of worship, cafés, libraries, specialists’ workplaces, rooms, even on their excursions abroad. In some East German urban communities, each bit of mail was opened in exceptional steam rooms joined to the post workplaces.

At the point when East German soccer groups ventured out to play coordinates in West Germany, Stasi specialists obliged busloads of fans, checking whether any East German sat close to a West German, showed a West German banner or sang the West German national song of praise.

Igor Gouzenko, The Soviet Defector Who Started the Cold War

Up and down the a large number of miles of East German expressway, Stasi specialists acted like corner store chaperons, servers and travelers, cautiously taking note of whether East Germans left their vehicles close to Western vehicles or conveyed dubiously overwhelming baggage.

The Stasi made it basically incomprehensible for East Germans not to work together. Each field operator needed to convey in any event 25 new sources or start 25 examinations consistently. Residents who declined to help were either set apart as subversives or left to adapt to the administration independent. ”You were unable to go anyplace in East German culture except if you could pull the correct strings,” says Hasso Von Samson, a spokesman for West Germany’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution. ”But I guess that’s what happens when they take away your enemy.”

This article reflects the situation in Germany in 1990.

Since then the top spies are still in touch with each other and form a dangerous network which is similiar to the Cosa Nostra in the USA and/or Sicily, the Yakuza in Japan, the Russian Mafia and the Chinese Triads.

The only distinction: The German STASI has learned the code of Omerta and operates in the dark – within the government, the Gauck administration, the Bundestag, the left party, the legal system as judges, attorney and prosecutors, the police and also in the German security and intelligence services.

And last not but least as undercover agents and informer for former KGB spy Wladimir Putin, now Russia’s ruler like former chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, former STASI agent Matthias Warnig and the Gazprom and North Stream – Energy connection.

It is a taboo until now.

EXPOSED – U.S. Army Threat Tactics Report: North Korea

Become a Patron!
True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.

The Korean peninsula is a location of strategic interest for the US in the Pacific Command (PACOM), and many observers note that North Korea is an unpredictable and potentially volatile actor. According to the Department of Defense in its report to Congress and the intelligence community, the DPRK “remains one of the United States’ most critical security challenges for many reasons. These include North Korea’s willingness to undertake provocative and destabilizing behavior, including attacks on the Republic of Korea (ROK), its pursuit of nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles, and its willingness to proliferate weapons in contravention of United Nations Security Council Resolutions.” Some of the latest evidence of irrational behavior is the elevation of Kim Jong Un’s 26-year old sister to a high governmental post late in 2014, the computer hacking of the Sony Corporation supposedly by North Korea during late 2014 over the possible release of a film that mocked Kim Jong Un, and the April 2015 execution of a defense chief for allegedly nodding off during a meeting. Over the past 50 years, North Korea has sporadically conducted operations directed against its enemies, especially South Korea. These actions included attacks on South Korean naval vessels, the capturing of a US ship and holding American hostages for 11 months, the hijacking of a South Korean airline jet, electronic warfare against South Korean signals including global positioning satellites (GPS), and assassinations or attempted assassinations on South Korean officials including the ROK president. The attempted 1968 Blue House Raid by North Korean elite military personnel resulted in the death or capture of all 31 infiltrators involved in the assassination attempt as well as the death of 71 personnel, including three Americans, and the injury of 66 others as the North Korean SPF personnel attempted to escape back to DPRK territory.

The purpose of this North Korean Threat Tactics Report (TTR) is to explain to the Army training community how North Korea fights including its doctrine, force structure, weapons and equipment, and the warfighting functions. A TTR also identifies where the conditions specific to the actor are present in Decisive Action Training Environment (DATE) and other training materials so that these conditions can easily be implemented across all training venues.

Executive Summary

North Korea is an oligarchy with Kim Jong Un as its supreme leader.
The DPRK is a militaristic society with about 1.2 million active duty personnel in uniform out of a population of 24 million with another 7.7 million in the reserve forces.
All military personnel serve under the umbrella of the Korean People’s Army (KPA); the Korean People’s Air Force (KPAF) and Korean People’s Navy (KPN) primarily support the KPA ground forces.
The KPAF focuses on homeland defense and close air support to the KPA.
The KPN’s primary mission is to protect the North Korean coastline and support the KPA special purpose forces (SPF) in mission execution.
Much of the equipment in all military branches is old and obsolete, but the KPA has concentrated its modernization efforts on missile technology that may provide the means to successfully launch a nuclear warhead.
North Korea possesses a nuclear weapon and is modernizing its missile fleet in order to increase the attack range for its nuclear arsenal.
North Korea possesses both chemical and biological weapons.
The KPA practices both passive and active camouflage to hide its units, headquarters, and other important resources from the air.

Weaknesses

Although the North Korean military may feature some positive attributes as a fighting force, the KPA also suffers from many weaknesses as well. Much of the military’s equipment is old and obsolete. The North Korean military consciously refuses to rid itself of any equipment and still operate tanks that date back to World War II. This wide range of military hardware from many generations of warfare also generates logistical issues. The KPA’s supply personnel must not only find the spare parts for a large variety of equipment, the KPA maintenance personnel must be well-versed in the repair of a great assortment of vehicles and weapons. In addition, the DPRK lacks the logistical capability to support the KPA beyond a few months. Due to the shortage of fuel and the cost to operate vehicles for a cash-strapped country, many of the KPA soldiers find themselves involved in public works projects or helping farmers bring in their rice crops. Any time spent in non-military support is less time that the KPA soldiers can spend training for combat. Even the mechanized and armor forces, due to resource restraints, spend much of their training time doing light infantry training instead of mounted operations. While KPA soldiers may be well trained in individual skills or small unit tactics, the amount of time spent on larger exercises pales in comparison to most Western militaries. Without adequate time and resources to practice large scale military operations, the KPA will always face a steep learning curve when the KPA is forced to perform them in actual combat for the first time.

The DPRK’s unorthodox use of provocation in order to obtain concessions from its enemies—especially the US, South Korea, and Japan—is a danger. One never knows what North Korea will do next as, in the past, the DPRK has sanctioned assassination attempts on South Korean political leaders and conducted bombings when South Korean contingents are in another country, unannounced attacks on ships by submarines, unprovoked artillery attacks, or has tunneled underground into another country. US military personnel stationed in South Korea must be prepared for the unexpected from the DPRK.

One of these incidents could ignite the Korean peninsula back into a full-blown war. While an armistice has been in place since 1953, an armistice is just a ceasefire waiting for a peace treaty to be signed or for the resumption of hostilities. Any conflict between North and South Korea would inevitably bring the US into the conflict as the ROK has been an ally for over six decades.

North Korea’s possession of nuclear weapons and the missiles to transport it up to 9,650 km makes it a threat to US forces stationed in Korea, Japan, Alaska, or even the west coast of the continental United States. Even more concerning was the DPRK’s first successful test launch of a KN-11 missile from a submarine on 23 January 2015 since, in the near future, the North Korean submarines could silently move closer to their targets before launching a nuclear missile that would give the US less warning time. If the DPRK thought that the survival of its country or the Kim regime was at stake, North Korea might use any nuclear weapons at its disposal. The KPA also possesses chemical weapons and its doctrine calls for their employment. The DPRK is also involved in biological weapons research and would likely use those with offensive capabilities. US military personnel training for deployment to South Korea must be prepared to fight in a chemical, biological, or nuclear environment.

How the Socialist Party platform of 1928 worked its way into American political policy.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

 

– Norman Thomas (1884-1968), six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America

Socialist Party Platform 1928
(click to read entire platform)

( NOTE:   It is the intention of CrystalBull.com to remain politically independent, and not become mired in partisan politics.  Our mission is to study the world economy, and in that mission, at times, the relationship between politics and economics becomes highly relevant.  This is an important time for this commentary.  Whether the reader is liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, we believe this is of interest to all investors. These observations were first made by economists (Nobel Laureate) Milton and Rose Friedman, in Free to Choose in 1979, but have been updated here.  Thankfully, we have been spared the brutality of a Joseph Stalin, though many of the economic principles of his early years have crept into American life.)

Let’s set the stage…  The year is 1928.  World War I ended ten years ago, but its effects and settlements have left much of the world in dire straits economically.  The National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi) is gaining power in an economically-destitute Weimar Germany.  Benito Mussolini and the National Fascist Party are firmly entrenched in Italy.  The Bolshevik Revolution, where first the peasants, then Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Party wrested power from the czars in Russia, is now a decade in the past.  Joseph Stalin has built a “cult of personality” in Russia, using mass media to create an idealized and heroic public image through unquestioned idolatry, flattery, and praise.

The propaganda machines of both Stalin’s Socialism and Mussolini’s Fascism are in full swing, painting rosy pictures of life under government control.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt is campaigning to become governor of New York.  The cocktail parties of Upper Manhattan are abuzz with chatter about the foreign rulers.  In fact, a year earlier, future members of FDR’s “Brain Trust” (mostly professors at Columbia University) went on a junket to Russia to meet with Stalin, and came back in admiration and awe.  One Brain Trust member, Stuart Chase, went on to write a very prophetic book, The New Deal, which laid the groundwork for the social programs of the FDR administration.  The last sentence of The New Deal reads, “Why should Russians have all the fun remaking a world?”

The U.S. economy is strong.  Life is good, but the “roaring 20’s” are about to come to an end.

In the 1928 election for President of the United States, Norman Thomas and James Maurer ran on the Socialist Party ticket.  They captured only one percent of the vote, but laid out a vision for what Socialism meant in the early part of the 20th century.  The planks of the Socialist Party platform were clearly defined.  It is fascinating that in just a few decades, most of the planks of the 1928 Socialist Party platform would be enacted into law, without the party ever winning an election.  Thomas finally quit American politics, stating that he was no longer needed, as the Democrat and Republican parties had adopted every plank in the platform.  He said, “The difference between Democrats and Republicans is: Democrats have accepted some ideas of Socialism cheerfully, while Republicans have accepted them reluctantly”.

Here are the economic planks of the Socialist Party platform of 1928, with editorial comment added (Click to read entire platform):

1. “Nationalization of our natural resources, beginning with the coal mines and water sites, particularly at Boulder Dam and Muscle Shoals.” (Boulder Dam, renamed Hoover Dam, and Muscle Shoals are now both federal government projects.)

2. “A publicly owned giant power system under which the federal government shall cooperate with the states and municipalities in the distribution of electrical energy to the people at cost…” (Tennessee Valley Authority, et al.  This is a generally accepted process across the country.  Even the private utilities are highly regulated.)

3. “National ownership and democratic management of railroads and other means of transportation and communication.” (Railroad passenger service was completely nationalized through Amtrak. Some freight service was nationalized through Conrail. Private railroads are strictly regulated by the federal government. The FCC controls communications by telephone, telegraph, radio, television, and the internet.)

4. “An adequate national program for flood control, flood relief, reforestation, irrigation, and reclamation.” (Government expenditures for these purposes are currently tens of billions of dollars per year, including FEMA, Army Corps of Engineers, etc.)

5. “Immediate governmental relief of the unemployed by the extension of all public works and a program of long range planning of public works . . .” (In the 1930s, WPA and PWA were a direct counterpart; now, a wide variety of other programs are.) “All persons thus employed to be engaged at hours and wages fixed by bona-fide labor unions.” (The Davis-Bacon and Walsh-Healey Acts require contractors with government contracts to pay “prevailing wages,” generally interpreted as highest union wages.)

6. “Loans to states and municipalities without interest for the purpose of carrying on public works and the taking of such other measures as will lessen widespread misery.” (Federal grants in aid to states and local municipalities amount to billions of dollars a year.  Federal highway funds and many other public works projects.)

11. “Enacting of an adequate federal anti-child labor amendment.” (Child labor provisions under Fair Labor Standards Act.)

12. “Abolition of the brutal exploitation of convicts under the contract system and substitution of a cooperative organization of industries in penitentiaries and workshops for the benefit of convicts and their dependents.” (In the 1930’s, contract labor was outlawed.  After that, rather than making products for private profit, inmates made license plates and other products for government or nonprofit agencies.  The Justice System Improvement Act of 1979 loosened regulations to allow prisons to put people to work, provided they paid prevailing wages, consulted unions, and didn’t displace workers outside prisons.)

13. “Legislation aiming at the prevention of occupational diseases.” (OSHA)

14. “Increase of taxation on high income levels, of corporation taxes and inheritance taxes, the proceeds to be used for old age pensions and other forms of social insurance.” (In 1928, highest personal income tax rate, 25 percent; in 2009, 35 percent, current proposals take that above 40%; in 1928, corporate tax rate, 12 percent; in 2009, 35-39% percent with proposed increases; in 1928, top federal estate tax rate, 20 percent; in 2009, 48% with proposed increases.)
