CNN Breaking News:
U.S. investigators have evidence that hackers stole the computer credentials of a system administrator to access Sony’s computer system, U.S. officials tell CNN’s Evan Perez.
The United States is preparing to publicly blame North Korea for the Sony Pictures hack, and one official said, “We do think it’s appropriate to respond.” The White House and government agencies are holding a series of high-level meetings to discuss the range of options, a senior official in the Obama administration said.
Maybe President Obama will “draw a red line!”
So, it appears that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un (hereafter referred to as Krazy Kim) hired some hackers to jack Sony servers, release a bunch of personal trash and get a movie release canceled. Nice. That’s SO “Communist Dictator Play Book” material. All of the Great Leaders who have gone before would just love that.
From CNN: “The movie’s plot involves the attempted assassination of North Korean dictator [Krazy Kim].”
Anyway, now there is this movie setting on servers at Sony, and thousands of copies (on whatever media studios ship movies to theaters on) out there that I had no interest in seeing…. But now I have to!
I predict that a copy will escape, get bootlegged and become the most watched movie of 2015, and an instant cult classic – even if it is terrible… Especially if it was terrible!
I am already imagining the official press release from Sony Studios with angry language about the criminals who released a copy of their intellectual property and the criminals who continue to copy and distribute the material and calling for legal action and threats…. Yes, “don’t watch this illegally obtained movie. That will make us very, very angry. Don’t do it!”
I wonder if they will re-edit the movie before it “somehow” gets “leaked?”

Obama said at a White House news conference: “We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States,” Obama said. “That’s not who we are. That’s not what America is about.” (emphasis added)
You see what’s important here, right? We cannot allow some dictator some place to impose censorship on us, because we are much better at doing that domestically.
If you think that the pervasive surveillance that has continued to grow in the world (under every political party) is not a form of censorship, you are simply delusional.

North Korea army has declared invalid the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War in 1953, an official North Korean newspaper reports.
The move comes after a new joint military exercise between South Korea and the United States began.
More than 3,000 U.S. forces are taking part in Key Resolve, according to United States Forces Korea.
North Korea has called the annual training exercises “an open declaration of a war,” but South Korea says it notified Pyongyang that the drills “are defensive in nature.”
Oh, look! It’s a crisis! Continue reading
