And another one bites the dust.

The Federal Communications Commission has shut down a pirate radio station that served as the flagship outlet for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

The Austin American-Statesman reports the FCC also has fined the station’s operators $15,000 — a fine the FCC says in a lawsuit the operators are refusing to pay.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Austin alleges Liberty Radio operated on a channel without a license since at least 2013. The lawsuit names as defendants Walter Olenick and M. Rae Nadler-Olenick.

Court documents show the FCC had tracked the transmissions to a 50-foot tower at an Austin apartment complex owned by an entity linked to the Olenicks.

Jones has faced troubles in recent months, most notably a defamation lawsuit arising from his false claim on his Austin-based “Infowars” program that the parents of one of the children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre were perpetuating the massacre story as a hoax.

Most social media platforms have banned Jones from their channels for violating their prohibitions of hate speech. His program also has been removed from the music streaming services Spotify.

I’m not gonna lie, I am really loving this. 

I saw a meme at one point that said “Alex Jones returning to his roots of yelling conspiracy theories through a bullhorn on street corners” and I think we are just about there.

    ” Boston Globe was forced to bring in uniformed police officers to its headquarters after the newspaper received multiple threats shortly after President Donald Trump attacked it on Twitter.”

    tinydjt tweet>The Boston Globe, which was sold to the the Failing New York Times for 1.3 BILLION DOLLARS (plus 800 million dollars in losses & investment), or 2.1 BILLION DOLLARS, was then sold by the Times for 1 DOLLAR. Now the Globe is in COLLUSION with other papers on free press. PROVE IT!

    “The Trump administration on Wednesday rolled back a series of Obama-era rules meant to regulate and coordinate how the United States engages in cyberattacks, portraying the rules as unnecessarily restrictive.

    The confidential Obama rules, referred to as “Presidential Policy Directive 20,” set in place processes for approval before any one government agency could launch a cyberattack.

    “If you don’t have good coordination mechanisms, you could end up having an operation wreck a carefully crafted multiyear espionage operation to gain access to a foreign computer system,” Michael Daniel, Obama’s White House cybersecurity coordinator, explained to the Wall Street Journal.

    A copy of the Obama directive, leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and obtained by The Guardian in 2013, also explicitly prevented the government from engaging in domestic cyber operations except in cases of emergency.

    It’s unclear what new rules, if any, the Trump administration has implemented instead, but a former senior U.S. official expressed concern to the Journal the new rules might now permit domestic activities.

    Trump officials contend Directive 20 was more of an impediment than a useful framework for interagency communication, a stance that could signal an increase in the U.S. engaging in such attacks moving forward.

    Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton was reportedly a driving force behind the decision.”

    Japanese Imperialism 1894–1945
    W. G. Beasley

    ABSTRACT
    This is a study of the origins and nature of Japanese imperialism, from the Sino-Japanese war of 1894–5 through to 1945. Japan is the only Asian country in modern times to have built both a successful industrial economy and an empire, and it is the author’s contention that these two phenomena are closely related. Japan’s aims were influenced by its experience of western imperialism and its own growing industrialization, but as external circumstances changed and Japan’s capacity grew, so did its needs and ambitions. The creation of the Japanese empire is one of the most remarkable exploits of the twentieth century. This book provides an investigation into its development, expansion, and eventual destruction.”

    The attacks came in the weeks before and after Alaska Gov. Bill Walker traveled to China to promote trade, including a Chinese-backed Arctic gas line, the researchers said.”
    “Cybersecurity firm Recorded Future said the group used computers at China’s Tsinghua University to target U.S. energy and communications companies, as well as the Alaska state government, in the weeks before and after Alaska’s trade mission to China. Led by Governor Bill Walker, representatives of companies and economic development agencies spent a week in China in May.”

    “A Tsinghua University official, reached by telephone, said the allegations were false.
    “This is baseless. I’ve never heard of this, so I have no way to give a response,” said the official, who declined to give his name.

    Tsinghua University, known as “China’s MIT,” is closely connected to Tsinghua Holdings, a state-backed company focused on the development of various technologies, including artificial intelligence and robotics.

    China’s Defense Ministry did not respond to a request for comment.

    Recorded Future gave a copy of its report to U.S. law enforcement agencies. The FBI declined to comment.”
    “The targeted organizations included Alaska Communications Systems Group Inc., Ensco Plc’s Atwood Oceanics, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, the Alaska governor’s office and regional internet service provider TelAlaska.
    Alaska Communications declined to comment.”

    ” spokesperson for the Alaska Governor’s Office said “everyday, the State of Alaska, like most state governments, has anonymous activity on the perimeter of our networks that amounts to someone checking if the door is locked. The activity referenced here is not unique.”“In the fall of 2015, cybersecurity cooperation was seen as a bright spot in the U.S.-China relationship,”

    “It was seen as a topic that the U.S. and China could actually have substantive discussions on. That’s not really the case anymore, especially with this trade war that both sides have vowed not to lose.””

    Alex Jones wife says he is worst in person. How on earth can he be on air or online without the FCC arresting him? He is clearly dangerous.

    OT? Take that >”Senate unanimously adopts resolution backing free press after Trump attacks’

    https://www.rawstory.com/2018/08/senate-adopts-resolution-backing-free-press-trump-attacks/

    “The resolution “reaffirms the vital and indispensable role that the free press serves to inform the electorate, uncover the truth, act as a check on the inherent power of the government, further national discourse and debate, and otherwise advance the most basic and cherished democratic norms and freedoms of the United States.””
    ““We swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution, including the First Amendment,” said Senator Brian Schatz, a Democrat and an author of the resolution. “Today, every senator upheld that oath by sending a message that we support the First Amendment, and we support the freedom of the press in the face of these attacks.””

    “As of August 7, 36 of 50 states had installed Albert at the “elections infrastructure level,” according to a Department of Homeland Security official. The official said that 74 individual sensors across 38 counties and other local government offices have been installed. Only 14 such sensors were installed before the U.S. presidential election in 2016.

    “We have more than quadrupled the number of sensors on state and county networks since 2016, giving the election community as a whole far greater visibility into potential threats than we’ve ever had in the past,” “

    Poor Alex, almost no job left and all that child support to pay. Luckily for him it’s a short drive by bus to get to the fields for those “stolen” picking jobs in the Rio Grande Valley.

    ““I tell you, ‘Meet me after school at 3:00. Right? We’re gonna fight’,” the police chief said. “And I come with the intention to fight. And then you get mad because I kicked your butt. And then you go back and you wail off and whine and complain.”

    Multiple people were seriously injured during the Patriot Prayer counter-protest after Portland police launched flash-bang grenades, pepper spray and rubber bullets at the anti-fascist demonstrators. A video taken by photojournalist Daniel V shows PPD storming the crowd upon realizing that they left two squad cars behind.”

    “Acevedo was stunned and said again that we should all celebrate each other’s cultures.

    “What do you mean each other’s cultures? It’s an American food, it’s an American food—you’re not going to appropriate my culture,” Carlson said. “I’m from San Diego, man. Those are my tacos. Mine!””

    “The website of Occidental Dissent, a white supremacist publication run by the League of the South’s Brad Griffin, was down on Wednesday. Griffin wrote that the site had been “censored,” and pointed to costs from the “ridiculous lawsuit.””
    “Spencer, who has also been named in the lawsuit alongside Kessler and a number of other prominent white supremacists, was forced to leave Alexandria, Virginia, where he had been renting an apartment.”
    “Left-wing blog It’s Going Down, which also reported Spencer’s move, told ThinkProgress that Spencer had moved back to Whitefish, Montana, where his mother currently lives.”
    ‘Richard Spencer has moved out of his Alexandria, VA apartment and back to what we assume, is mommy and daddy’s. The house was the site of bi-weekly protests by locals, and once a hub for the Alt-Right.
