Microsoft Surveillance chip April 26/14

Friends this info below explains why I was guided not to upgrade my computer due to wide spread violation of our rights along with dangers to our health via odd harmonics technology disruptor objectives within all phones computers and wireless applications designed for the dark smart grid surveillance control matrix.

A Special Surveillance Chip

According to leaked internal documents from the German Federal Office for Information Security
(BSI) that Die Zeit obtained, IT experts figured out that Windows 8, the touch-screen enabled, super-
duper, but sales-challenged Microsoft operating system is outright dangerous for data security. It
allows Microsoft to control the computer remotely through a built-in backdoor. Keys to that backdoor
are likely accessible to the NSA and in an unintended ironic twist, perhaps even to the Chinese.

The backdoor is called Trusted Computing, developed and promoted by the Trusted Computing
Group, founded a decade ago by the all-American tech companies AMD, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard,
IBM, Intel, Microsoft, and Wave Systems. Its core element is a chip, the Trusted Platform Module
(TPM), and an operating system designed for it, such as Windows 8. Trusted Computing Group has
developed the specifications of how the chip and operating systems work together.

Its purpose is Digital Rights Management and computer security. The system decides what software
had been legally obtained and would be allowed to run on the computer, and what software, such as
illegal copies or viruses and Trojans, should be disabled. The whole process would be governed by
Windows, and through remote access, by Microsoft.

Now there is a new set of specifications out, creatively dubbed TPM 2.0. While TPM allowed users
to opt in and out, TPM 2.0 is activated by default when the computer boots up. The user cannot turn
it off. Microsoft decides what software can run on the computer, and the user cannot influence it in
any way. Windows governs TPM 2.0. And what Microsoft does remotely is not visible to the user. In
short, users of Windows 8 with TPM 2.0 surrender control over their machines the moment they turn
it on for the first time.

It would be easy for Microsoft or chip manufacturers to pass the backdoor keys to the NSA and
allow it to control those computers. NO, Microsoft would never do that, we protest. Alas, Microsoft,
as we have learned from the constant flow of revelations, informs the US government of security
holes in its products well before it issues fixes so that government agencies take advantage of the
holes and get what theyre looking for.

Experts at the BSI, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and the Federal Administration warned
unequivocally against using computers with Windows 8 and TPM 2.0. One of the documents from
early 2012 lamented, Due to the loss of full sovereignty over the information technology, the security
objectives of confidentiality and integritycan no longer be guaranteed.

Elsewhere, the document warns, This can have significant consequences on the IT security of the
Federal Administration. And it concludes, The use of Trusted Computing technology in this form
& is unacceptable for the Federal Administration and for operators of critical infrastructure.

Another document claims that Windows 8 with TPM 2.0 is already no longer usable. But Windows
7 can be operated safely until 2020. After that other solutions would have to be found for the IT
systems of the Administration.

The documents also show that the German government tried to influence the formation of the TPM
2.0 specifications  a common practice in processes that take years and have many stakeholders 
but was rebuffed. Others have gotten what they wanted, Die Zeit wrote. The NSA for example. At
one of the last meetings between the TCG and various stakeholders, someone dropped the line,
The NSA agrees.

Bank of America Fine April 26/14

US Dept of Justice Seeks More Than $13 Billion Settlement from Bank of America; Ex-Finance Chief Gets $7.5 Million Fine

US prosecutors are seeking more than $13 billion from Bank of America Corp. To resolve federal and state investigations of the lender’s sale of bonds backed by home loans in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis, according to people familiar with the matter.

The settlement would come on top of the $9.5 billion the bank agreed last month to pay to resolve Federal Housing Finance Agency claims, said two people who asked not to be named because the negotiations are private. A deal could come within the next two months, the people said.

If the Justice Department gets its way, the case against Bank of America will eclipse JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s record $13 billion global settlement over similar issues in November.

That settlement, which included a $4 billion agreement with the FHFA, encompassed loans JPMorgan took over with its purchases of Washington Mutual Inc. And Bear Stearns Cos.

Bank of America, the second-biggest U.S. Lender, is among at least eight banks under investigation by the Justice Department and state attorneys general for misleading investors about the quality of bonds backed by mortgages amid a drop in housing prices. Many of the loans in question were inherited by Bank of America when it purchased subprime lender Countrywide Financial Corp. And Merrill Lynch & Co., the people said.

“Bank of America owns Countrywide, which was the biggest and most problematic mortgage originator, and Merrill Lynch was the one packaging many of those loans into bonds — together, that’s a huge liability,” said Pri de Silva, senior banking analyst at CreditSights Inc. In New York. “The government’s holding all the cards. It’s a tough place to be for the banks.”

Task Force

Bank of America, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, hasn’t specified how much money it has set aside for the case. The bank said April 16 that it increased reserves for mortgage-related matters by $2.4 billion.

Lawrence Grayson, a Bank of America spokesman, declined to comment on the negotiations, as did Ellen Canale, a Justice Department spokeswoman.

President Barack Obama ordered the creation of a task force in 2012 to coordinate probes of improper mortgage-bond underwriting by banks. Associate Attorney General Tony West has been overseeing the investigations and negotiations. Other banks that have faced scrutiny include Citigroup Inc., Credit Suisse Group AG and Wells Fargo & Co.

Early Stages

The current talks are aimed at resolving civil probes by federal and state prosecutors in California, New York and New Jersey, the people said.

The negotiations are still in early stages and if an agreement isn’t reached, the government could sue the bank, according to the people. The size of any settlement would depend in part on how much the bank is willing to pay in cash versus other remedies such as mortgage write-downs or consumer relief, one of the people said.

In the FHFA settlement, Bank of America agreed to pay $6.3 billion in cash to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to resolve lawsuits alleging it misrepresented loans packaged into bonds that were bought by the U.S.-owned mortgage firms. The company also said it would repurchase about $3.2 billion of mortgage bonds from the firms.

BC Seed Rights Threatened! Mar 28/14

Meeting Saturday

FARMERS LOOSING THE RIGHT TO SAVE SEED in BILL C-18

INFORMATION MEETING IN DUNCAN on SATURDAY MARCH 29, 2014 at 1:30 PM
Glenora Hall, 3660 Glenora Rd, Duncan, BC

The board members of the National Farmers Union, Peter Eggers and Jan
Slomp, will speak on omnibus Bill C-18, The Agricultural Growth Act, at this
event in Duncan.

Bill C-18 will take away the rights of farmers to use home grown seed or
seedlings and replace it with a mere "privilege" which will prove to be hollow and
meaningless.


This Bill C-18 will further empower transnational seed and chemical
companies like Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer and a few others at the expense of farmers
and the general public in Canada.

The reasons why this Bill will endanger Canadian's ability to feed
themselves with wholesome foods will be explained. The NFU proposes an alternative solution,
based on a strong, healthy and democratically controlled food system.

THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPALS OF A FARMERS SEED ACT

Farmers and all Canadian citizens demand from our government, to act
in the interest of citizens by endorsing democratic control over food in
times
of climate change and depletion of resources.

Restore Legal Use of Bank of Canada! Mar 27/14 Print E-mail

COURT CHALLENGE--Bank of Canada and Minister of Finance, Defendants

PRESS RELEASE          TORONTO, ON., CANADA- 19/12/2011

TWO CANADIANS AND A CANADIAN ECONOMIC THINK TANK CONFRONT THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL POWERS IN THE CANADIAN FEDERAL COURT.

THE CANADIANS PLEAD FOR DECLARATIONS THAT WOULD RESTORE THE USE OF THE BANK OF CANADA FOR THE BENEFIT OF CANADIANS AND REMOVE IT FROM THE CONTROL OF INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE ENTITIES WHOSE INTERESTS AND DIRECTIVES ARE PLACED ABOVE THE INTEREST OF CANADIANS AND THE PRIMACY OF THE CONSTITUTION OF CANADA

Canadian constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, on behalf of Canadians William Krehm, and Ann Emmett, and COMER (Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform) on December 12th, 2011 filed an action in Federal Court, to restore the use of the Bank of Canada to its original purpose, by exercising its public statutory duty and responsibility. That purpose includes making interest free loans to municipal/provincial/federal governments for “human capital” expenditures (education, health, other social services) and /or infrastructure expenditures.

The action also constitutionally challenges the government’s fallacious accounting methods in its tabling of the budget by not calculating nor revealing the true and total revenues of the nation before transferring back “tax credits” to corporations and other taxpayers.

The Plaintiffs state that since 1974 there has been a gradual but sure slide into the reality that the Bank of Canada and Canada’s monetary and financial policy are dictated by private foreign banks and financial interests contrary to the Bank of Canada Act.

The Plaintiffs state that the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), the Financial Stability Forum (FSF) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were all created with the cognizant intent of keeping poorer nations in their place which has now expanded to all nations in that these financial institutions largely succeed in over-riding governments and constitutional

orders in countries such as Canada over which they exert financial control.

The Plaintiffs state that the meetings of the BIS and Financial Stability Board (FSB) (successor of FSF), their minutes, their discussions and deliberations are secret and not available nor accountable to Parliament, the executive, nor the Canadian public notwithstanding that the Bank of Canada policies directly emanate from these meetings. These organizations are essentially private, foreign entities controlling Canada’s banking system and socio-economic policies.

The Plaintiffs state that the defendants (officials) are unwittingly and/or wittingly, in varying degrees, knowledge and intent engaged in a conspiracy, along with the BIS, FSB, IMF to render impotent the Bank of Canada Act as well as Canadian sovereignty over financial, monetary, and

socio-economic policy, and bypass the sovereign rule of Canada through its Parliament by means of banking and financial systems.

A press conference will be held on Wednesday, December 21st, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. to answer any questions the media may have of the Plaintiffs at: 637 College Street, Suite 203, Toronto, Ontario.

A copy of the filed statement of claim is attached. -30-

B-2 (the “Act”) for the purposes of “human capital” expenditures and/or municipal/provincial/federal “human capital” and/or infrastructure expenditures;
