- WhatsApp had to delay the implementation of the new terms, slated for 8 February while its competitors have welcomed fleeing users. The company’s poorly executed change to its terms of service is behind the sudden exodus. WhatsApp informed users that it will be allowed to share data including location and contact details from chats on its “Business” app with parent company Facebook. The damage has already been done – according to figures shared by the UK Parliament’s Home Affairs Committee, in the wake of the announcement Telegram gained 25 million users worldwide, while Signal now has 7.5 million new users. The messaging app migration has also affected the world of big politics, with many world leaders joining Telegram. Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram messenger, claimed that this was potentially the largest digital migration in human history, saying that Telegram channels were the best way for politicians to reliably connect with people.
- The Israeli spyware software has become increasingly notorious after being implicated in many high profile hacks, including of the phone of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Pegasus, which is manufactured by a Israeli tech company NSO Group Technologies, is currently the subject of a lawsuit by social media giant Facebook in the United States, after it was revealed the spyware was gaining access mobile phone users’ WhatsApp conversations and possibly vacuuming up other forms of data, including audio and video via the device’s camera and microphone.
- The founders of Apollo Global Management, one of the world’s biggest private equity firms, engaged in a brief power struggle this weekend over control of the firm, a rift that opened up after an inquiry revealed that one founder — Apollo’s chief executive and chairman, Leon Black — had paid more than $150 million to the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The review found that Mr. Black had paid Mr. Epstein $158 million in a five-year period ending in 2017. He had also lent Mr. Epstein more than $30 million, only $10 million of which was paid back, the report found. Black published a letter in which he admitted that “it was a terrilble mistake” to associated with Epstein and “like many people I respected, I decided to give Epstein a second chance,” Black said last October.

- [Weekely Asteroid] A newly-discovered asteroid designated 2021 AH8 flew past Earth at a distance of 0.14 LD / 0.00035 AU (52 360 km / 32 534 miles) from the center of our planet at 19:22 UTC on January 4, 2021. This is the 9th known asteroid to fly past Earth since the start of the year.
- Hundreds of containers carrying goods such as furniture, fitness equipment and electronics have fallen overboard from a California-bound ship. This time it was the Maersk Essen en route from Xiamen, China, to the Port of Los Angeles last Saturday when, according to the ocean carrier, the container ship experienced a “rough sea encounter.”
- A recall campaign to oust California Gov. Gavin Newsom is nearing its required threshold to qualify for a statewide ballot. Over the weekend, recall organizers said they have collected 1.2 million of the 1.5 million signatures needed by March 17 to qualify for a ballot. Per state law, petition sponsors must gather the signatures of 12% of the voter turnout in California’s previous statewide election, which is about 1,495,709 names. Rescue California, one of two main groups organizing the campaign, said their goal is to collect 2 million signatures to account for the fact that many of the signatures will inevitably prove invalid.
- The spate of student suicides in and around Las Vegas has pushed the Clark County district, the nation’s fifth largest, toward bringing students back as quickly as possible.
- A district judge in Weimar, Germany, has acquitted a man who was to be fined for violating the Corona contact ban by celebrating his birthday with at least seven other parties from a total of eight households, six guests too many under Thuringia’s Corona ordinance. The judge’s verdict is scathing: The Corona Ordinance is unconstitutional and materially objectionable.
- Communist China became one of the few countries to attract more capital than the US in 2020, making it the top destination for foreign direct investment, while overall global flows dwindled by over 40 percent. The Chinese economy pulled in $163 billion in inflows last year, marking a four percent year-on-year increase, according to the figures released by the UN Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Meanwhile, the US fell into second place as foreign inflows into the largest economy in the world dropped to $134 billion.
- The economic cost of the COVID-19 crisis in America now pegged at $16.1-Trillion—that stands in comparison to the $6.4-Trillion economic cost of Americas post-9/11 wars—a comparison not being noticed by the American people, who still fail to understand that this post-9/11 war cost was what imploded their economy in 2007-2008 Financial Crisis—specifically because their Federal Reserve central bank unleashed their printing presses to flood the world with US Dollars—and in setting the groundwork to handle a future economic crisis like a pandemic, saw the Federal Reserve then putting in place an economic structure to collapse the value of the US Dollar, the result of which would be America being able to extinguish its un-payable debts, but would also wipe out the life savings of the American people—and as exactly predicted over ten years ago on 19 October 2010, which was when economists at Time Magazine published their warning article “Will the Federal Reserve Cause a Civil War?”, wherein it warned that the Federal Reserve was “literally threatening those at the lower end of the economic strata, along with all who are retired, with starvation and death”.
- Despite decrying censorship when it was happening to them last year, when Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook earlier this month, the left praised the move by big tech. “Facebook is a private company and can do what they want,” the pro-censorship hypocritical crowd chanted ad nauseum through the digital ether after bad orange man was silenced. But as we have said time and again, Facebook being private is simply not true. Now, however, Facebook has made an unscrupulous Faustian bargain with the federal government which should eliminate all doubt once and for all. They are now willfully handing over private messages of Trump supporters who talked about the events at the capitol on January 6.
- The Boris Johnson administration’s efforts to pass legislation which will allow the state to recruit children to spy on their parents and even break the law while doing so has horrified some of the party’s top parliamentarians. The Covert Human Intelligence Source (CHIS) Bill will, if passed into law, allow 22 state agencies, including the likes of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and local councils, as well as the intelligence services and police, to recruit children as “covert human intelligence sources” — spies, essentially. Children aged 16 and 17 could even be used to spy on their own parents, and afforded certain protections to break the law while doing so.
- A Texas teenager has turned his father in to the FBI for taking part in the Capitol Hill riot, and pocketed tens of thousands of dollars from liberal admirers in the process. Guy Reffitt was charged with obstruction of justice and of knowingly entering a restricted building, though he claims he never actually entered the Capitol. Jackson Reffitt left his family home, and has since become something of a celebrity.

- The mayors of Beek and Echt-Susteren, Holland, have signed emergency declarations in anticipation of riots tonight. The one in Beek started at 16:00, the one in Echt-Susteren started at 17:00. The declaration in Beek lasts until the 3rd of February, the one in Echt-Susteren until the 10th of February. Both orders are for the entire town, not just the city center. The emergency declarations allow police to conduct stop-and-frisk without reason. Some store owners in Echt-Susteren have preventively boarded up their windows, another store even placed a heavy container in front of his store. Capelle aan den IJssel and Rotterdam mayors also have signed emergency declarations. In Rotterdam Alexandrium will be locked down, and in Capelle all mall areas are being locked down. All areas will see an increase of police.
- The farmers tractor parade in Delhi, India, promised to be peaceful by union leaders, descended into a spiral of violence as protesters fought pitched battles with policemen in ITO and other parts of the national capital on Tuesday. The two-month-old protest by farmer unions, camping at the gates of Delhi to seek the repeal of the new agriculture laws, descended into chaos on Republic Day when hundreds of protesters, breaking away from a planned tractor rally on the city’s outskirts, felled barriers at the borders, clashed with police to enter the Capital, and stormed the Red Fort to unfurl the Nishan Sahib flag.
- In its report on the state of journalism in the world in 2020, Paris-based Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters Without Borders) has appropriately ranked Iran as the global record-holder of killing media staff.
- All Customs and Border Protection (CPB) construction on the U.S.-Mexico border wall will stop by the end of Tuesday, according to a Democratic congressman whose district is located along the border.
