I'm absolutely sure none of Switzerland international connections goes thru a US friendly country...

why the sarcasm?

Having a compliant government grant access to both end-points makes life easier than doing mid-point intercepts, I thought.

Feel free to prove me wrong.

well, Norway is a core NATO member (unlike Sweden) and interacts even more deeply with the NSA:

I'd be surprised if their network traffic isn't 100% exposed to US surveillance.

Short version: Ulfkotte wrote a german bestseller. Tayen Lane bought the English rights. Ulfkotte died. Tayen Lane pretended to sell his book but has actually refused to sell a single copy to this day.

Have a good look at tayen lane. Classic example of what a 'front' looks like.

The hoopla makes sense when you look at how the West has tried to regime change Iran over the last 40 years. And Iran plays right into it, with their silly clerics playing the 'fanatics' role that our media loves them to play.

The irony is that we ban books just like Iran, but we're far more sly about it. Look at how cleverly the english translation of 'Journalists for hire' was "removed" from western readers.

Should we make the /subscribed page the main home page? by magnora7 in SaidItSurveys

[–]bablarb 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Is this about the recent spike in German posts?

The least disruptive change might be to just exclude non-english posts from the default home page, since most of us won't understand them anyway. And keep everything else as is.

I agree 100%, reddit is heavily manipulated - but a minor stake in a $2+ billion company doesn't change who's running the show. Reddit is still a US company, operating on US soil, and its management and top-admins and hw and servers are all at the physical mercy of only one government - and it's not the Chinese.

Then just hrs after the investment was announced some admins "admit" they censor content to please their new Chinese overlords - I just can't bring myself to believe it. Seems crazy that the old media-manipulation machinery would roll over that easily.

However, if I was a professional perception-controller (with n ntrepid licenses) and I wanted to spook a western audience about the great new menace of China - I would do just that... make fake claims about "them taking over" to trigger a standard "were not gonna let them!" reaction.

That's just my random thoughts. There are so many layers of deception on reddit that I take nothing there at face value.

The idea that Tencent buys <10% of reddit and is able to implement censorship on day 1 is really hard to believe, sorry.

weird, not a single mention of the 2002 coup anywhere, which was so very similar.

Top question if the US media was free and actually did their job: How much did the "National Endowment for Democracy" pay up this time? In 2002 they brazenly backed the military coup with millions, despite valid & democratic elections.
