California Just Threatened To Stop Paying Taxes If Trump Cuts Federal Funding Over Sanctuary City Status





By Melissa Caen via cbslocal.com
The state of California is studying ways to suspend financial transfers to Washington after the Trump administration threatened to withhold federal money from sanctuary cities, KPIX 5 has learned.
Officials are looking for money that flows through Sacramento to the federal government that could be used to offset the potential loss of billions of dollars’ worth of federal funds if President Trump makes good on his threat to punish cities and states that don’t cooperate with federal agents’ requests to turn over undocumented immigrants, a senior government source in Sacramento said.
The federal funds pay for a variety of state and local programs from law enforcement to homeless shelters.




“California could very well become an organized non-payer,” said Willie Brown, Jr, a former speaker of the state Assembly in an interview recorded Friday for KPIX 5’s Sunday morning news. “They could recommend non-compliance with the federal tax code.”

California is among a handful of so-called “donor states,” which pay more in taxes to the federal Treasury than they receive in government funding.

Soon There Could Be Only 49 States in America









(ANTIMEDIA) Activists in California have just taken an integral step that could leave America with only 49 states in the near future. Yes California, a pro-secession organization, received approval Thursday to begin collecting signatures from residents to put “Calexit” on the ballot for a 2019 special election.

Yes California has been working toward secession for some time, but with President Donald Trump’s election last year, their efforts gained momentum as frustrated residents questioned their willingness to bow down to a president they don’t support. According to a poll conducted by Reuters/Ipsos this month, nearly one in three supports secession — a sharp uptick from a similar survey conducted in 2014. With secession becoming a viable alternative, it’s possible that support may continue to grow.
The organization submitted their ballot proposal to California’s state government in November, and on Thursday, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla gave them the green light to begin collecting signatures. They need 585,407 people to sign their petition by July 25. If they succeed, the referendum will make it onto the 2018 ballot. If it passes, the state will hold a special election the following year. The Sacramento Beereports:
“The proposed measure would strike language from the California Constitution defining the state as ‘an inseparable part of the United States of America, and the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.’ If it passed, there would be a statewide special election in March 2019 to ask voters if they want California to become an independent country.”
Many Americans often joke about California leaving the union, highlighting how wildly different residents of the Golden State are from those of America’s heartland. Indeed, Yes California appears to agree.
America already hates California, and America votes on emotions,” Marcus Ruiz Evans, one of the group’s founders, told the Los Angeles Times. “I think we’d have the votes today if we held it.”
In a recent post on their website announcing their progress, they wrote:
“In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children.
It’s understandable why secession has become a proposed solution considering California has long struggled with many systemic problems. As Yes California points out:
“Although charity is part of our culture, when you consider that California’s infrastructure is falling apart, our public schools are ranked among the worst in the entire country, we have the highest number of homeless persons living without shelter and other basic necessities, poverty rates remain high, income inequality continues to expand, and we must often borrow money from the future to provide services for today, now is not the time for charity.”
Though Yes California points out practical reasons for secession, they also argue the underlying justification for their movement from a philosophical standpoint:
However, this independence referendum is about more than California subsidizing other states of this country,” they write. “It is about the right to self-determination and the concept of voluntary association, both of which are supported by constitutional and international law.
Further:
“It is about California taking its place in the world, standing as an equal among nations. We believe in two fundamental truths: (1) California exerts a positive influence on the rest of the world, and (2) California could do more good as an independent country than it is able to do as just a U.S. state.”
California has the sixth largest economy in the world, bolstered by the film industry, Silicon Valley, agriculture, and the state’s biggest cash crop — cannabis — which voters legalized in November.
While the practical and philosophical reasons for secession are compelling, it’s doubtful many residents are looking beyond President Donald Trump. California leans heavily to the left, and Democrats hold a supermajority in both houses of the state legislature. California was largely responsible for Hillary Clinton’s popular vote victory.
Further, though Yes California stresses the importance of voluntary association, it’s doubtful an independent California government would ask taxpayers what programs they’d like to fund. Ultimately, though California as a country would certainly be beneficial for decentralization and localization efforts, it would operate as a government and, as such, force Californians to participate.
Nevertheless, the movement reflects undeniable divisions within the United States, especially in the era of Donald Trump. Other states are also eyeing secession, including Texas, Washington, and Oregon.
As Anti-Media observed shortly after the election:
“People are rioting and protesting over Trump’s win throughout California but celebrating in Alabama, and against the backdrop of an ever-encroaching federal government, it appears these differences are growing difficult to reconcile.”

Anonymous - Donald Trump Pedophilia EXPOSED | #OpDeathEaters
















We are Anonymous. 


This message is delivered by Operation Death Eaters.


Trump has been accused of rape with Jeffrey Epstein. Why aren't the media mentioning this? Why was this man allowed to stand as a presidential candidate?

Epstein was a member of Mar-A-Lago, Trump's private club and residence in Palm Beach.

"I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,'' Trump told New York magazine in a 2002 profile of Epstein written three years before Epstein began to be investigated. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

In 2000, both Trump and Epstein reportedly attended a small party hosted by media magnate Conrad Black, who in 2007 was convicted and served time in prison for fraud and obstruction of justice (the fraud charges were overturned on appeal). Black is currently an enthusiastic supporter of Trump's presidential bid.

Mark Epstein, Jeffrey's brother, testified in 2009 that Trump flew on Jeffrey's private jet at least once. Meanwhile, message pads from Epstein's Palm Beach mansion that were seized by investigators indicating that Trump called Epstein twice in November of 2004.

#OpFreeAnons Engaged 


Dear citizens of the World:

More of Our Brothers & Sisters have been kidnapped by judicial systems across the Globe, in their ongoing effort to repress anti-censorship, resistance, and revolutionary movements. We have been labeled and prosecuted as cyber-terrorists, for our efforts to expose and fight corruption, implement transparency, and resist the sway of secret intelligence entities bent on Our destruction.

Anonymous has witnessed arrests & convictions under the hand of oppressive British, French, Thai, Turkish, United States & other law enforcement agencies, for government and corporate whistle-blowing, and even such activities as using twitter, spreading links, and making videos. Our governments have not only stepped on the rights of these arrested individuals, but on the basic rights of all people - freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of association.

We will never be content to stand by, and watch our freedoms be eroded. Transparency cannot exist in government lock-down. Those arrested believe in a cause, believe in the freedom of expression, believe in all of us.

It is not only our responsibility to support those in trouble, but it is mutually beneficial. By having the backs of those arrested, charged, and held, we send a message that we are not afraid. That we will never give up. That we will fight harder now, than ever before. We, as Anonymous, have an undying responsibility to people who have been jailed as freedom fighters.

By waging this fight, We show others We stand by comrades and friends when things get difficult. This is especially true when those innocent of any crime have been branded as criminals and members of an organization that doesn't even exist.

A court case can be a rallying point, a way to show others We are still here and we will never forsake the arrested and persecuted. And We can win, if We stand in solidarity with people who have the courage to take action against oppressive governments and corporations. Prosecutors, and law enforcement agencies: drop all charges and investigations on all Anonymous defendants. Your prosecutions may be your professional regard by corrupt governments, but they shame your Citizens. You will never win the real battle. That Victory belongs to us.

Anonymous cannot be Stopped.

For every one of Us that falls, 10 more will take his or her place.

They can harass & arrest some of Us.
But they can't detain Us all.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We do not Forgive.

We do not Forget.

Edward Snowden Refuses To Use An iPhone

The lawyer for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden says that his client never uses an iPhone because of fears about its security, Sputnik News reports.
Anatoly Kucherena spoke to news agency RIA Novosti and explained that Snowden is wary of the iPhone because of his knowledge of the NSA’s surveillance tactics.
“Edward never uses an iPhone, he’s got a simple phone,” the lawyer said. “The iPhone has special software that can activate itself without the owner having to press a button and gather information about him, that’s why on security grounds he refused to have this phone.”
Documents leaked by Snowden reveal that iPhone security is an area of interest for the world’s spy agencies. British spy agency GCHQ was recently revealed to have used the UDID system to track iPhone users.
Edward Snowden has been living in Moscow since fleeing the US and leaking internal NSA documents. The former government contractor has made appearances at technology conferences using encrypted video streams and telepresence robots during his time in Russia.
The above video examines Snowden’s claims and finds them to be entirely possible: the NSA can use your phone against you, and they can do this even when it’s switched off. What do you think? Does all this make you feel nostalgic for the glory days of bulky old Nokia handsets, or are you happy to forfeit privacy for new technology in the smartphone age?

FBI Hacked: Hacker Leaks Data After Agency Failed to Patch Its site



(rt) For the second time, a hacker known as CyberZeist has breached the FBI’s website and leaked personal account information to a public site.
On December 22, 2016, CyberZeist, also known as Le4ky, exploited a zero-day vulnerability in the Plone Content Management System (CMS) of the FBI’s website, and leaked some of the information to Pastebin, an open source site that is often used by hackers to post stolen information and bits of code.
In the Pastebin leak, the hacker claims that the leak was “totally devoted to the Anonymous Movement.”
A zero-day fault is a vulnerability in the code that has not been detected, listed, or patched yet. Therefore, the FBI had zero days to respond to the attack. CyberZeist was able to find a vulnerability in the Plone CMS, which is considered to be the most secure CMS’ among security experts. It is used for many major websites like Google, the FBI and the CIA, and other major US agencies.
The latest hack revealed personal data on 155 agents in the FBI, including their names, passwords, and email accounts.
CyberZeist warned other agencies that are currently using the Plone CMS that they too are vulnerable to a similar attack, including the EU Agency for Network & Information Security, Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, and Amnesty International.
CyberZeist breached the FBI’s site and found they were running an old version of the open source operating system (OS) FreeBSD. While the most recent version, 11.0, was released in October 2016, the FBI is still using version 6.2, which was released in January 2007.
While exploiting the code, CyberZeist discovered that the FBI’s webmaster had “a very lazy attitude as he/she had kept the backup files (.bck extension) on the same folder where the site root was placed (Thank you Webmaster!)”
Authorities in the US have not yet responded to the CyberZeist hacks. CyberZeist claims that they did not discover the vulnerability in the CMS. “I was assigned to test out the 0day vulnerability on FBI and Amnesty website,” because, as they claim, the vendor was “too afraid to use it against the FBI website.”
The hacker confirmed that the zero-day exploit is offered for sale on the Tor network by a hacker that goes by the moniker “lo4fer.” “I obviously cannot publish the 0day attack vector myself as it is being actively sold over tor network for bitcoins,” CyberZeist says in the leak. “Once this 0day is no longer being sold, I will tweet out the Plone CMS 0day attack vector myself.”
In 2011, CyberZeist was also credited with hacking the FBI as a member of the hacking group known as Anonymous. At the time, he was able to breach the FBI’s security with a phishing scam that spoofed a login portal. This is very similar to the way that the recent Democratic National Committee emails were hacked.
In that hack, CyberZeist was able to steal over 250 email addresses and passwords.
For his next assignment, CyberZeist has set up a poll, asking his fans to vote for the next target he should hack. The options are between government services, banking corporations, military and defense services, and an “other” option, where you can tweet your preference to CyberZeist. The popular choice is banking institutions, with over 800 votes so far.

Operation Awake The Masses 2017  ENGAGED



Dear citizens of the world,

Operation: Awake the Masses has begun. First, let's make one thing clear. For the ones still not believing our words as being the truth, we are not a conspiracy created in China or Russia, determined to overthrow the United States of America. As far as we can see, almost all of the governments of the world are poisoned by greed and enslaved by the monopoly cartel. We have been created by the very acts of violence, terror, and greed, which has been used by your Government and its shadow masters ruling it, to conquer the entire World.

Anonymous is everyone; everyone can take action in his own way against their own governments if they believe that the people working there, does not serve the citizens' best interest, but instead they serve the corporate monopoly.

Action must be taken nonetheless.

We are not blind and we see the problems facing Asia and the Middle-East. But first we will concentrate our efforts in the direction of the United States of America. Here is where the most unequal distribution of wealth exists. 400 people now own more wealth than most of its population. To be precise, more than 150 million people. 400 versus 150 million people. This will only stop if we start to awake the people that see life very different than the rest of us. The people we are talking about spend most of their time watching foolish TV shows about celebrities and still believe that their leaders only want the best for them. Also, watching whatever sick programs created for the human mind to be enslaved and redirected from the real problems facing humanity.

We have seen many brothers and sisters showing their interest in wanting to help humanity pass on the right track. Well, now is your chance. Here is what you can do to help to break the chains which have enslaved our planet. Upload on any social network or video-sharing sites like Facebook and Youtube, all the videos that you believe that represents the truth of the danger that threats our very existence. But, rename their title in a way so that people that are still asleep to be interested in. You have to make it look interesting in title, but the content to be straight to the matter. Of course, most of them will ignore the videos, report them, have them deleted, so be careful to use accounts that you can dispose of, so that your own accounts can be safe. This will also trigger a much securer protocol of those social networks and video-sharing sites, but by the time they will implement them, we will have already gained another couple of millions of awakened people on our side.

Just think what chain reaction we could create.

We remind the rest of Anonymous collectives to never underestimate the power of brainwashed people in large numbers. We are still a minority compared to the rest of the Earth population. And the only way we would ever have a chance into saving humanity once and for all from the monopoly banking system is by telling people the truth, even if they don't want to hear it.

So this is our primary mission from now on.

Replacing their brainwashing weapons with the truth is the most peaceful action we will ever be able to take. And the most important fact is that it can be done by anyone, because anyone can be Anonymous. Let's remind them that we're not helpless no matter what threats or acts of violence they take.

We are not here to play foolish games - we are here with a mission. We are not getting paid for it, we are not becoming famous for it. Anonymous is everyone. Remember that. And never forget that we stand for true justice, equality, and liberty.

We are Anonymous.
We are everywhere.
We are everyone.
We will direct humanity into the right path.
We will save humanity - because we can.
Greedy banksters and corporate cartels, you cannot stop us.
You cannot stop the future.
Expect us.

Anonymous - Message to Our World Leaders 2017


Message To World Leaders 2017


Greetings citizens of the world,

This is a message to the various men and women of “power” who claim the positions of national leaders & government officials. Enough! It's long past time to stop playing the blame game. This pointless bickering is doing nothing but tearing our species apart!

You claim to be leaders, yet you fail to lead when we need leaders the most. Globally we are heading in some very dangerous directions, we are on courses that will lead to the senseless deaths of innocent people. Courses that could easily be altered towards peace, deaths so simply avoided.

You claim to be looking out for your citizens, yet you so readily send them off to war. Young men and women are sent to kill each other in the name of their countries, and for what? For vengeance? So you can have a moment of satisfaction before you come to your senses and realize how much you've lost in your bloodlust?

We're all upset when something bad happens, especially when it's a pointless loss of life. However that doesn't justify more senseless loss of life by our hands in response! All these pointless wars, so many lives lost over thousands of years. All over a sliver of a tiny blue dot... Do you even comprehend the magnitude of what you're doing?

Humanity has the opportunity to expand well beyond the boundaries of this world. The universe is ever expanding, and it's resources are vast. You can either see to it that we all die on this rock, or that we prosper as a species in this universe. The choice is yours.

One thing is certain, if this pointless fighting doesn't stop, more innocent lives are inevitably going to be loss, and their deaths will be on your hands. You have a choice right now to really prove you're the leaders you claim to be, to put the citizens before your own comforts and desires, to promote the unity of our species rather than the division of our planet. These are your brothers and sisters, do not condemn them to fight your battles and NEVER forget them.

We are Anonymous,
We are Legion,
We can Forgive,
Though we shall Never Forget,
Expect us!
