Many of you will remember Gordo’s hellbent push, carrying on Blair’s bad work, to get as many things criminalised as possible – think there were 3000 new laws were there not in his time? Whatever the number, it was a hell of a lot.
One of those was the Rest In Peace Act, of which more below. Bottom line was that they could make anything a crime if they so determined or ignore it if you’re a good boy or girl. Thereby they exert control. They learnt this from Russia, causing Gorbachev to remark on it, let alone Russians of my acquaintance who shook the head at the mania of ‘Britain’ in adopting the worst practices of the Soviet Union.
However, reading through the Marriage Act  earlier, what was apparent was that at any time, a government official can challenge and charge, even over something as innocuous as when and where the banns were published, when and where the ceremony could be held. Those acts have now been supplemented by 1968 and 2013.
Into this, let me insert Wolfie’s comment about the run on the pound. Thing is, we’re already in default, so is the US – I posted on four cases of banks defaulting in the US in January about four years ago – it was written up by Karl Denninger and Jesse at the time. So it was already, by any definition put out by these people, in default. Except that they determined t was not in default.
So this whole thing is by fiat, is it not? There is no universal law which prescribes and defends, it’s whatever they wish it to be. There will be no run on the pound, should Carney decide not but should the Club decide it’s crash time, then they’ll crash the economy. There’s no mystery in this – the JPM forerunner did just this in the US in 1857, causing the grain crisis.
The left does have a point here – that these robber barons determine who shall eat and who shall not, by whim and fiat. English law and EU law play right into the hands of these people, given the vague and contradictory set of precedents.
And so to RIPA – I found this at my old site, courtesy Gavin Ayling:
Section 22 says:
It is necessary on grounds falling within this subsection to obtain communications data if it is necessary-
(a) in the interests of national security;
(b) for the purpose of preventing or detecting crime or of preventing disorder;
(c) in the interests of the economic well-being of the United Kingdom;
(d) in the interests of public safety;
(e) for the purpose of protecting public health;
Just look at those and that is my main contention in this post now – that they can determine it to be exactly what they wish it to be.
Thus to Ken Craggs today:
The UK Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (UK IPAct 2016) informs us (p.7) that “Bulk interception is used by the security and intelligence agencies to obtain overseas related communications (or secondary data) in large volumes in order to find intelligence on known threats and to identify new ones.” Section 56 which is subject to Schedule 3 of the UK IPAct 2016 also allows the State to tell lies about you in court.
ARM Holdings is a UK company headquartered in Cambridge and is one of the UK governments advisors for digital products and services. It therefore seems that the UK IPAct 2016 will apply globally to people in every country and of any nationality. ARM doesn’t actually manufacture anything physical you can buy, but just licences Intellectual Property to over 450 ARM partners and other companies who then have to make, or buy further Intellectual Property from other sources, to have a complete device they can eventually manufacture. According to this Bloomberg article, ARM-based products are now possibly the most-used consumer products in the world and ARM has arguably had a more profound effect on modern living than just about any other company.
To be subject to surveillance, a person of any nationality, in any country, simply needs to own or be in possession of an electronic device that contains ARM Intellectual Property. ARM would then be able to snoop on any device anywhere in the world to ensure that the device is being used in a manner that complies with the terms and conditions of the ARM Intellectual Property licence.
ARM chips can be found in most electronic devices, both digital and analog, such as cellphones, smartwatches, wearables, tablets , laptops, desktops, servers, supercomputers, medical devices, manufacturing equipment, smart TVs, cars, and many other objects that are connected to the Internet of Things . To date ARM partners have already shipped over 100 billion ARM chips. Microsoft and ARM have worked together since the 1990s.
The Intellectual Property Law Association is hosting the Global IP Summit in Brussels on the 19 – 20 June 2017. The theme of the summit is ‘Intellectual Property at the Epicentre of the World’s Economy’. This will provide another opportunity to raise questions about ARM Intellectual Property being used as the backbone of global surveillance.
And this as we know, ladies and gentlemen, is manipulating the law in order for the State to remain in legal control. Where the UK has shot itself in the foot is that there is English Common Law and EU Law vying for precedence and a legal case can be made for either side, using precedent. This is how they want it – fluid but the determination of reality that of the State, not of the commoner. Far from being oppression of a minority, which is the bullsh they keep going on with, it is oppression of the majority – that’s the big fear of State.
