The Syrian Electronic Army have been found responsible for the hacking of the Associated Press’s Twitter account. The group falsely stated on the AP’s Twitter feed to their millions of followers that there had been two bomb blasts at the White House which had injured President Obama. This caused chaos on Wall Street resulting in $US136.5 Billion being wiped off the stock market by ‘Bots’ that predict market change and have been designed to react quicker than humans can. This has resulted in a lot of talk in the media about the new threat of ‘Cyber Terrorism’ and what this will mean in our current digital world. But no-one seems to be dealing with the fact that a computer program could possibly fuck up and wipe out wheat prices world wide resulting in mass anarchy all because some ‘Sultan’ had a stroke.
The Syrian Electronic Army has also been responsible for hacking the twitter accounts of 60 Minutes (USA), NPR Radio and interestingly BBC’s Weather service. Its seems the group was not happy with the weather stations long-range forecast of the Arab Spring.
More food news from China, 904 people have been arrested over ‘illegal food’ crimes. The crimes include, injecting meat with water to make it weigh more and using chemicals on the meat to pass off Fox and Rat as Mutton. Well I suppose with a nation of billions you may not have to worry about ‘return customers’. Some other great food swindles from China include Child Formula that contained nothing but starch and the old favourite, selling recycled household waste as Cooking Oil.
After sectarian violence in Myanmar (the country we ignorant bastards have been calling Burma for years) the government has held a commission on the racial tensions in the countries west. The area is currently under a form of segregation against the minority muslim population who have even been denied medical treatment at some hospitals by Buddhist Doctors and Nurses. One of the recommendations that came out of the commission was to introduce ‘family planning programs’ which can be a great step forward for women’s rights in giving them more power over their lives. But it should be available for all women in the country and not used as described in the report ‘to stem population growth amongst minority muslims’. Family planning for population control is the perfect example of ‘Politically Correct Racism’.
James McCormick of Langport, England has been charged with fraud over 7,000 fake bomb detectors he sold to numerous nations. He made 50 million pounds off the useless devices that were really just novelty golf ball detectors. The radio aerials used in the devices were made in the US and cost just twenty dollars each, McCormick was selling his novelty ‘bomb detectors’ for $5,000 each to Romania, Georgia, Niger, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Iraq was a good customer to the Englishman, he made $38 million off the war-torn nation alone, the devices are still being used at check points to this day.. There seems to be more quality control on pool fences than there is on weapons of warfare.
McCormick wins ‘The Traitists’ quote of the week regarding his product, ‘It does exactly what it’s designed to. It makes money’. That it did James, and this is why the world will never see peace, because war is way to profitable.
Israel has conducted airstrikes in Syria against targets it says were weapons they did not want falling into the ‘wrong hands’. The U.S. has defended Israels right to ‘defend itself’. Thats an interesting method of ’defence’, from inside the borders of another country. Although this could be seen as an act of war Israel has not made a declaration of war to Syria as yet. Just as Japan’s declaration was not received by the U.S. before Pearl Harbour during World War Two. A move that was not defended by the U.S.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) held their annual convention in Texas recently where Chief Executive Wayne Lepierre asked ‘How many Bostonian’s wish they had a gun two weeks ago?’ He also said the people of Boston were ‘locked behind their doors’ during the man hunt for the bombers. I’m sure the Boston Police would have loved thousands of untrained armed to the teeth citizens roaming the streets looking for a possibly armed suspect with dark hair at night.
The NRA boss is missing the real threat he could be using to drum up fear and misinformation to help his illogical cause to keep an assault rifle in every living room. The real danger lurking in America is not Terrorists but Toddlers. Yes, Toddlers. More people have been killed in the U.S. this year by Toddlers than Terrorists. Perhaps the NRA should suggest all toddlers have a pistol hidden in their nappies to defend themselves, maybe a luger in the lunchbox could prevent the next school massacre or even a pump action shotgun with your pop-corn at the movies. Whatever solution the NRA come up with I’m sure it will involve more guns.

Papua New Guinea’s only female MP Loujaya Toni has made some bold statements on ways to curve sexual assaults by prison inmates. She has suggested that some prisoners should be released on bail to have sex with their wives as a means of reducing sex crimes. And high risk prisoners should be drugged to ‘lower their sexual aggression’. But this idea is not to curve sexual assaults amongst prisoners, its to curve sexual assaults on women when prisoners escape. Last month 39 prisoners escaped from a PNG prison including an infamous cult leader and rapist known as the ”Black Jesus’ (which was reported in Issue #2 of ‘The Traitist’, ‘Flimsy Justice’).
The MP’s ideas are like trying to teach cows road rules to stop them being hit by cars rather than just constructing a fence. Historically governments around the world have found the best way to stop sexual assaults by escaped prisoners is to prevent escape in the first place. ’The Traitist’ also asks, is letting prisoners out of prison the best way to prevent escape?
Tension is mounting over Syria, the U.S. and Israel state they have more evidence that Assad has used Sarin against civilians and rebels. Sarin was used in the Japanese subway attacks in ’94 and ’95, it causes victims to froth at the mouth and eventually choke to death. US secretary of defence Chuck Hagel has said if Assad has used chemical weapons he would be crossing a ‘red line’ and it ‘violates every convention of warfare’.
The fog of phosphorus and depleted uranium must have concealed the ‘red line’ in Fallujah.
Sea World in Orlando, Florida has become a publicly listed company. But with a history of fatalities at the park and a long running public debate over education vs entertainment, is the marine park a safe bet on the share market? It was only three years ago that 40 year old Orca trainer Dawn Brancheau was scalped and dismembered by a whale named Tilikum. Dawn was the third trainer to be killed by the Orca amongst other incidents where trainers were held under water and attacked by Tilikum and other whales. The park claims the performances by the whales jumping and splashing are purely for educational purposes. But you don’t need to go to Sea World to learn that Orca’s are called Killer Whales because they are very intelligent killers. Obviously you missed an important educational lesson when you get in a pool with one of the worlds most vicious hunters. Have we learnt nothing from ‘Free Willy’?
In Fukushima, Japan they are having more problems with rats chewing through wires and causing faults with cooling systems. The Traitist has suggested rounding up Radioactive Cats from the surrounding area to deal with the rodents.
Mining magnate Clive Palmer has stated publicly he wants to be Prime Minister of Australia. He re-launch his ‘United Australia Party’ which he said will contest every seat across the country, so far he is the only candidate. During the press conference he said ‘I could go off and stay in Monaco, have a nice drink and forget about this country, but we’ve got more commitment to Australia, to your children, than anyone else’. Well that’s nice you have that option because 99 percent of Australians don’t, the majority of Australians can only afford to go as far as Bali and I doubt you can really forget about this country when you only have a few nights on the beach in Kuta. And does Clive Palmer really have more commitment to the children of Australia? More commitment than their parents who feed them, clothe them, educate and love them for at least 18 years?
Clive and his new party have been compared to Bob Katter and his Australian Party and also Pauline Hanson who has also been rumoured to be making a return to politics. Compared to these contenders Tony Abbott will look like a brilliant libertarian. Some Liberal Party Mp’s have said he will only win votes amongst the ‘rednecks’ in North Queensland. Lets hope the Liberal Party dont smash all the windows in their glasshouse.
Israel has shot down a Drone from Lebanon, this is not the first drone shot down by the Israeli Military. Drones or ‘Standoff’ weapons as they have been subtly described have become standard for western powers like Israel, the U.S. and European nations for surveillance and also extra judicial killings. But with the technology becoming more widely available more ‘rogue’ states have been using them, which has caused western countries to complain like children who don’t want anyone else to use their toys. Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu said of the drones from Lebanon ‘I view with great gravity this attempt to violate our borders’. Interestingly when Palestine, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon complained about the violation of their borders they did not receive any sympathy from Israel. Some have even asked if the Israeli leader has any idea what a ‘border’ is?
