BMW says it won’t give up the Alphabet domain, trademark

Google's Larry Page introduced Alphabet yesterday, a holding company that will, as far as consumers go, not change much. You probably have noticed that Google didn't plant its new Alphabet website on the Alphabet.com domain, however, and that if you go to the website it doesn't have anything to do with Alphabet. That's because it is owned by BMW, as is the Alphabet trademark, and the auto maker has revealed in a statement that it has no interest in changing that.

Hackers Cut A Corvette’s Brakes Wirelessly To Prove It Could Happen To Your Car, Too

General Motors gets to join Fiat Chrysler and Tesla in an unenviable lineup this week: Using cheap gadgets and text messages, researchers have proven they can hack that most traditional of cars, the Chevy Corvette. And worse still is that this line of attack will work on basically any car with a computer in it, which is to say… all of them.

US Fox News: Turkey’s PKK strikes outrage US military in Iraq

Erdogan and the Turkish military need a good ASSKICKIN!

According to a Fox News report on Tuesday, Turkey launched its air strikes against the PKK "with only 10 minutes notice to their American partners."

"The U.S. had barely enough warning to make sure its own forces were out of the way, according to a military source with knowledge of the tension Turkey's attack caused in the Combined Air and Space Operations Center [CAOC], the allied headquarters in the air war against ISIS [ISIL]," the online version of the Fox report said.

First victim of Spain’s 'gag law' fined for criticising 'lazy' police

The first known individual to fall foul of Spain’s controversial new “gag law” has spoken out against what he sees as the repression of free speech after he received a fine for describing his local police force as "slackers" on Facebook.

Eduardo Díaz, a 27-year-old salesman from Tenerife, told the newspaper El Mundo that the comment he posted on his mayor’s Facebook page about the decision to provide the local police force with a new and larger headquarters was “just a criticism, not an insult. I get the impression that they are trying to silence the voice of critical citizens”.

Nobody wants to see Jeb Bush win the nomination

How can between 87 and 93 percent of the Republican electorate be wrong?

After the Fox debate, the RINO-industrial complex hit Donald Trump with everything but the kitchen sink. And yet, after a nearly weeklong barrage, Juan Ellis Bush can’t get beyond 13 percent in the latest New Hampshire poll.

And Jeb’s national ceiling is below that, no matter how many wet kisses he gets from the Wall Street Journal and the Chamber of Commerce.

Doubts cast on Islamic State's so-called leak of US .mil, .gov passwords

The "hackers" proclaimed on their webpage "US Military And Government Emails, Passwords, Names, Phone Numbers and Location Information Leaked."

But something's not right. There are lots of entries for people with non-US addresses – such as a worker in an Israeli magistrates' court (court.gov.il), someone in a college in Mississippi (millsaps.edu), a person in the Australian National Audit Office (anao.gov.au), and a UK council worker (stockport.gov.uk).

It's almost as if someone has scraped the public internet for email addresses with "gov" or "mil" in them. There are also just a handful of accounts listed per organization, whereas millions of people work for Uncle Sam.

And the plaintext passwords are hilariously weak – like "david8" weak. The sort of password you wouldn't expect a military or government network to accept.

Swan Song for the Donald? GOP Party Bosses Plan to “Take Out” Trump

The people who own this country don’t like euthanizing one of their own. But they’ll do it in heartbeat if they think their world of privilege, patronage and power is at risk. Last Thursday, Donald Trump overstepped his bounds and crossed a line. In off-the-cuff remarks to a Fox moderator during the GOP presidential debates, Trump provided a window into a corrupt political system that is thoroughly marinated in the money of private donors. He explained in detail how the system is rigged in favor of the rich and powerful, and he admitted that wealthy donors contribute to political candidates so they “do whatever the hell you want them to do.” In one short 20-second exchange, the brash Trump revealed the quid pro quo that assures that the coffers at both the Democrat and Republican headquarters remain full-to-the-brim.

Greece: Raped, Humiliated, Frightened But Standing!

Greece is now obviously on the same hit list of the Empire, as are countless other nations, from Ecuador and Venezuela, to Russia, China and Iran.

Has it been a warning or an act of desperation? A reaction to recent humiliation, to a rape that Greece once again suffered at the hands of Germany, its politicians and banks, and in the paws of the rest of the European Union?

In Greece, it all feels like a calm before a huge storm.

Obama Administration refuses to help American Kelly Rutherford as her children are shipped away to France, grants greater rights to non citizens than Americans

In a move that should send shock-waves through the hearts and minds of the American people, a judge in Manhattan has ordered the children of celebrity Kelly Rutherford be returned to their father in Monaco, France.

The Centerpiece of US Foreign Policy Struggle

The basic question for all Americans is whether we will act as an independent, sovereign country pursuing peace through diplomacy, as we currently see unfolding with Iran and Cuba, or a submissive military instrument, directed by Israel’s proxies hell-bent on destroying America for Israel.

While many US intellectuals, liberals, progressives and leftists support the US-Iran agreement (see the Scientists’ Letter to Obama on Iran Nuclear Deal, Aug. 8, 2015 with 29 top scholars and Nobel laureates support diplomacy), few would dare to identify and attack Israel’s US proxies as they promote Tel Aviv’s agenda pushing the US to war with Iran. A brief glance through the sectarian left press, for example, The Socialist Register, New Politics, New Left Review, finds no discussion of the powerful, well-financed, highly organized, elite-driven Israeli proxies and their role in determining US wars in the Middle East, and more specifically the war agenda toward Iran.
