    Many Americans to this day are wondering how all of this violence, mayhem, riots, and criminality came upon America. It’s as if someone flipped a switch, and it all started, and our world changed. The groups that are executing this insurrection were carefully planted, groomed, and prepared by the Obama administration and its remaining shadow government once President Trump was elected, just waiting for the green light to burn, destroy, and yes, even kill. It was all planned. This is what one investigative reporter, George Elliason, an American who lives in the Donbass region of East Ukraine, is proposing, and...

  • Meet the Pirates: radical group set to form a new government in Iceland

    On the freezing, windswept streets of Iceland's capital, there is little evidence that a motley crew of computer hackers and anarchists could soon form its next government. As elderly couples and swarms of tourists amble around Reykjavik, not a single outdoor canvasser or campaign poster is in sight. But inside the headquarters of the Pirate party, which lurks by the harbour, dozens of volunteers are hammering on keyboards as they spread their anti-establishment message on social media - which they say is where the real election battle is being fought. With an affluent, friendly population that is smaller than Bristol...

    he past few years have been stormy for Iceland, a country threatened by volcanoes and brought low by bankers. Now, Icelanders are thinking of putting their trust in pirates. The Pirate Party, an anti-authoritarian band of buccaneers that wants to shift power from government to people, is one of the front-runners in an election triggered by financial scandal in a country still recovering from economic catastrophe in 2008.

    While interviewing Bernie Sanders on "Meet The Press" on October 11, 2015 Chuck Todd asked the following question: “Are you a capitalist?” Bernie answered “No. I’m a democratic socialist.” To properly understand his answer, it is helpful to go back 104 years to the candidacy of Eugene V. Debs who, in 1912, ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket. In that election, there were four candidates for President: William Howard Taft (Republican), Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive), Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), and Eugene V. Debs (Socialist). On some of the platform planks, there was an overlap between the Socialists and the Progressives....

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wants more than a wall to keep out immigrants living in the country illegally. He also wants to end "birthright citizenship" for their children, he said Sunday. And he would rescind Obama administration executive orders on immigration and toughen deportation, allowing in only "the good ones." Trump described his expanded vision of how to secure American borders during a wide-ranging interview Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press," saying that he would push to end the constitutionally protected right of any family living illegally inside the U.S. ...

    Whistleblower Edward Snowden might soon be living up to his frigid last name as Icelandic lawmakers have put legislation on the table that would make the NSA's most wanted man a citizen of the polar country. Member of Iceland's parliament Ögmundur Jónasson first made the proposition this morning, the last day before the 63-member legislative body begins their summer leave. Granting citizenship to Snowden, who admits to revealing key details of U.S. surveillance activities would circumvent the rule that he must be on Icelandic soil to apply for asylum there. The same tactic helped get eccentric chess master Bobby Fischer...

    Overnight the Pirate Party has become a third political force in Germany, and has become much more than a dragnet trawling protest voters. According to Die Welt, the Pirate Party could be the pioneer of a new democracy in the post-industrial era, and indeed throughout Europe. The jury is still out on whether from the Pirates will prove to be more than a footnote to European democracy. But if the pirates are not crippled by growing pains they stand a good chance of formally transforming democracy in the 21st century, mastering the end of the era of growth, achieving a...

    Pirate Party hopes for free future By Ian Youngs Music reporter, BBC News The Pirate Party, a political movement born out of music file-sharing, has gained support in Sweden and Germany, and is planning to field candidates in the next UK general election. It wants to encourage all file-sharing and slash copyright - to the horror of many artists and entertainment executives. So are they a significant force or a fleeting bunch of freeloaders? If Rick Falkvinge did not already know what the music industry thought of him, the Pirate Party founder found out at the In The City music...

    The Pirate Party, a political group which hopes to legalise internet filesharing, has attracted a huge number of new members since announcing its plans to contest seats at the next election.

At its peak, he said, around 100 people an hour were signing up to become party members. "It has exceeded all expectations," he said. "Put it this way – donations have been coming in so fast that PayPal were concerned we were a fraudulent site."...

He'll also outline the next steps in the pirates' strategy to change global copyright laws. The fight against copyright aggression tends to focus on economic aspects of the shift to a networked economy. Falkvinge explains how this conflict is much more important than that: the fight against the copyright regime is...
