Talking Teddy Bear Roemer; just remove the batteries

There was a time in The Netherlands extreme left wing parties like the Socialistische Partij (S.P.) were strictly prohibited. Party members of (neo) communist movements were not eligible for jobs with a security risk like the Police and e.g. the postal service PTT.

But nowadays we live in different times and people with left radical opinions are operating in the forefront of society. Not hindered by any intellectual abilities they are spreading their sometimes weird thoughts.

Regarding health care issues, I believe the Dutch S.P. is a real danger to society. Scientific developments like DNA research are blocked by irrational motives and lies. Therefore the Dutch people should realize that with the S.P. in the Government, life expectancy of thousands of patients, especially poor people that cannot afford seeking treatment abroad, is at stake.

Further to this, the ultra-left wing socialists simply do not understand that the restrictions on e.g. IVF treatments are useless since patients, who can afford it, go abroad to get what they want. Particularly to determine the sex of a newborn child S.P. health care specialist Van Gerven prefers abortion above laboratory techniques. He prefers murder above sex selection in the lab. Van Gerven blackmails me personally with the threat to continue slandering as long as my IVF websites are alive. I believe he should be jailed for that.

Like extreme right, extreme left wing parties, thank God for that, have no endurance. It’s members are often under educated and, as we know, have little ability to understand how society works.

On the brink of new elections in Holland early next year, last week it was no one less than talking Teddy Bear Emiel Roemer on the hit list from some party members. They leaked anonymously information to a newspaper that Roemer is not fit for the job and should leave.

The S.P. is like a sect. Members have to follow the party doctrine and keep quiet. Additional to this, they even are obliged transferring a significant sum of their income to the party.

After the leaking incident, it was of no surprise, that instantly an interrogation followed, comparable like the way it goes at a nursery school.

Under threat of punishment, one by one, party members were questioned by Mr. Roemer himself to find out who has spoken so bluntly and broke with the party line that dictates that everybody involved should keep their mouth shut.

After all, no verdict. Most damage is, Mr. Roemer admits, not done to him personally but to the party. Let’s hope so. Because I believe Mr. Roemer is a good guy. He should stay where he is. Cannot do any damage nor good.

What a relieve. Now it is highly unlikely that the S.P. will get a seat in the next administration. They are born to run in the opposition mode only. And Mr. Roemer, since he is a talking Teddy Bear, to finalize effectively, just remove the batteries. It’s as easy as that. Happy Xmas!

The future is bleak for bank customers in Europe

This week the EU announced the shocking development of new legislation to drive European citizens one step further in the direction of a privacy black hole. In the near future, banks are allowed to share vital data such as balances from customers with ordinary companies. If you didn’t hate the sick mind politicians in Brussels, now you might do.

The EU believes that companies can make better approaches to potential customers with their products when they know all about your spending capabilities.

This latest development would involve using technology to open up access to data such as a list of the transactions in an individual’s bank statement, balances included.

Further to this, the new law would also allow financial companies getting inside information to attract new customers more efficiently.

According to a EU spokesman, bank clients don’t give a damn about privacy as long as they get what they want.

We knew that the banking industry is laughing about their customers. A bank that really cares for clients never should advise using a smartphone for bank transactions.

To heat this matter up, this week security researchers made public that malicious software designed to attack Android smartphones has breached the Google accounts of more than a million Android smartphone users.

According to security firm Check Point Software Technologies, the malware, named Gooligan, still massively targets devices running Android 4.0 and 5.0.

This is nearly 74 percent of mobile devices using the Google-powered operating system.

The malware is able to steal email addresses and authentication data stored on the devices to access sensitive data from Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs and who knows also banking account data.

The security firm calls the theft of over a million Google account details “very alarming and represents the next stage of cyber-attacks”

A new variant of the Gooligan’s code is affecting around 13,000 devices per day. About 57 percent of those devices are located in Asia and about nine percent in Europe.

How it works: The infection begins when a user downloads and installs a Gooligan-infected app on a vulnerable Android device or by clicking on malicious links in phishing attack messages.

Attackers can gain control over the device and generate revenue by fraudulently installing apps from Google Play and rating them on behalf of the victim. Check Point Software said it reported the details of the malware to Google, and that the tech giant indicated it would take steps to protect users.
