Putin signs law on data sharing with ‘unfriendly’ states
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Sunday barring the country’s banks from sharing data with government agencies from so-called ‘unfriendly’ nations that have illegally sanctioned Russian entities and individuals.
The new law prohibits the country’s financial institutions from responding to requests from foreign agencies, including judicial bodies, for information about their clients and transactions.
From now on, banks are instructed to reject such inquiries, citing Russian law as the reason for not processing such requests.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to undergo cancer surgery and temporarily hand over power to a hardline former federal police chief, according to a new report.
Putin will transfer control of Russia’s government to Nikolai Patrushev, head of the Russian federal police’s Security Council, while he is incapacitated during and after the procedure, according to a video from the mysterious Telegram channel “General SVR” on Saturday.

Watching Joshua Philipp of Crossroads/Epoch Times right now talking about the points of this new Office Of Misinformation and how it includes the term malinformation, or the malicious use of true facts.
Worse, how spreading mis/dis/malinformation is literally now categorized as terrorism and an act to undermine the stability of the nation...
We have reached the point where telling the truth is officially an act of terrorism.
It's hard to even imagine the next step.

ODNI annual transparency report on the government's use of FISA, pen/trap, national security letters, etc. The FBI looked up your nudes by name over 3 million times last year.
The Annual Statistical Transparency Report Regarding the Intelligence Community’s Use of National Security Surveillance Authorities provides statistics and contextual information concerning how the Intelligence Community uses the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and certain other national security authorities to accomplish its mission. The report also describes the circumstances under which such national security activities are conducted and the rules that are designed to ensure compliance with the Constitution and laws of the United States. By providing statistics along with explanatory narratives, the Intelligence Community endeavors to enhance public understanding of intelligence activities by adding further context to other publicly released materials regarding the oversight framework. This is the ninth such transparency report.

I use 3 browsers on a secondary tablet, none of them are able to establish a connection to the upload page.
I'm guessing a rollout of a paid subscription to offset the cost of bandwidth room on the servers will help fix the issue.
I can't afford a dollar a day, but it's worth it if that becomes the solution.
Got ur pm X thanks.
Maybe I'll consider using an image hosting site in the future.
Kinda blows to find out my collection of uploads have become unavailable unless I turn the cheek to offer the other.

I opened a new account on twitter:
I am trying to post only in Italian to help fight censorship in my country but after a few days I am discouraged ... 2 followers and statistics views close to zero.
I feel like I'm talking to an empty room.
If you would like to help me grow I would be grateful.
FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
