NSA spying in Vienna detailed at Chaos meet

According to a report in the Austrian news daily Der Standard, Möchel had made extensive use of the documents revealed by Edward Snowden, the former systems administrator and defense contractor with Booz Allen Hamilton who allegedly leaked NSA and CIA secret archives.

The documents show that the American National Security Agency operates a robust presence in the Austrian capital, and with good reason. Despite Vienna having a population of only 1.75 million people, the city is home to more than 17,000 accredited diplomats, many of whom work in the various international organizations, including the United Nations, IAEA, UNIDO, CTBTO, OSCE and OPEC.

That means nearly 1 percent of Vienna's population have diplomatic status - and a significant portion of those are likely to be spies, according to Austrian investigative journalist Emil Bobi, who estimates that there are more than 7,000 spooks living in the city.

Obama Says He Is Improving the World

U.S. President Barack Obama said in a December 30th Oval Office interview with Steve Inskeep of National Public Radio, that, “wherever we have been involved over the last several years, I think the outcome has been better because of American leadership.” This statement from him was part of his answer when Inskeep asked whether the President had regrets about “overthrowing the Gaddafi regime” in Libya.

Obama answered:

“We are hugely influential; we’re the one indispensable nation. But when it comes to nation-building, when it comes to what is going to be a generational project in a place like Libya or a place like Syria or a place like Iraq, we can help, but we can’t do it for them.” In other words: the Libyan people failed, and the Syrian people failed, and the Iraqi people failed, according to America’s President — but he himself and his predecessor Bush did not fail by bombing those countries under false pretenses as they did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only a one word characterization of Obama's state of mind, upon making these statements: delusional!!!

And unfortunately, even invoking the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which states that a President can be removed for physical or mental disabilities, the US government would be left with...President Biden for at least two years.

Gun owners fear Maryland cops target them for traffic stops

A year ago this New Year’s Eve, John Filippidis of Florida was driving south with his family on Interstate 95 when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police pulled over his black Ford Expedition and proceeded to raid it while his twins, wife and daughter looked on — separated in the back seats of different police cruisers.

The officers were searching for Mr. Filippidis‘ Florida-licensed, palm-size Kel-Tec .38 semi-automatic handgun, which he left at home locked in his safe. (Maryland does not recognize handgun permits issued by other states.)

Key Figures In CIA-Crack Cocaine Scandal Begin To Come Forward

More than 18 years have passed since Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb stunned the world with his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series investigating the connections between the CIA, a crack cocaine explosion in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, and the Nicaraguan Contra fighters -- scandalous implications that outraged LA’s black community, severely damaged the intelligence agency's reputation and launched a number of federal investigations.

It did not end well for Webb, however. Major media, led by The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, worked to discredit his story. Under intense pressure, Webb's top editor abandoned him. Webb was drummed out of journalism. One LA Times reporter recently apologized for his leading role in the assault on Webb, but it came too late. Webb died in 2004 from an apparent suicide. Obituaries referred to his investigation as "discredited."

LA Times Absurdity: The 'Enemy Within' Is Cultivated by Fedgov Gridlock

This article presents the idea that people are going to get so fed up with do-nothing politicians – hamstrung by gridlock – that they will rise up and demand a dictatorship.

The logic fails to convince us, though the article is penned by an award-winning professor. Jared Diamond, we learn from his bio, is author of The World Until Yesterday, Collapse and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Guns, Germs and Steel.

Despite his credentials, we find plenty of controversial statements in this editorial. Bottom line: We never heard anyone say, "Gee, I'm so frustrated over the lack of laws being passed that I hope a dictator comes along and passes more of them."

Obamacare: How Screwed Are You?

Since the ACA was deemed to have passed Congress, rewritten and declared a tax by Justice Roberts, altered, parsed and carved up by Presidential fiat, had its many exemptions and waivers issued to the fortunate and filibustered against its funding; dozens of minions in various administration agencies have also cranked out over 100 final regulations on how this fraud will be implemented.

That’s the long way of saying you’re about to be subjugated. Think I’m paranoid?

Okay, riddle me this:

Since when does enforcement of a law require thirty times more words and regulations than the law itself?

The answer is when enforcement is the entire point of the law.

But most importantly, the Administration will have you by the short hairs. They’ll have your medical history and the ability to share it or exploit it when it suits them.

Worse than the dictators: Egypt’s leaders bring pillars of freedom crashing down

Egypt is enacting authoritarian laws at a rate unmatched by any regime for 60 years, legal specialists from four institutions have told the Guardian.

Since the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, Morsi’s successors in the presidency, Adly Mansour and Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, have used the absence of an elected parliament to almost unilaterally issue a series of draconian decrees that severely restrict freedom of expression, association and assembly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is NOT the outcome for which Egyptians were demonstrating not so long ago.

IT is, very much, however, the outcome preferred by both the US government and Israel, so that Egyptian governmental activities were "controllable".

28 Signs That U.S. Public Schools Are Rapidly Being Turned Into Indoctrination Centers And Prison Camps

It has been said that children are our future, and right now the vast majority of our children are being “educated” in public schools that are rapidly being turned into indoctrination centers and prison camps. Our children desperately need to focus on the basics such as reading, writing and math, but instead a whole host of politicians, “education officials” and teachers are constantly injecting as much propaganda as they possibly can into classroom instruction. Instead of learning how to think, our children are continually being told what to think. Not only that, our children are also being trained how to live as subservient slaves in a Big Brother police state. Today, nearly everything that children do in public schools is watched, monitored, recorded and tracked. Independent thought and free expression are greatly discouraged and are often cracked down upon harshly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Had Mike and I had kids, we would have home schooled them, and if we lived in a non-friendly home school state, we would have moved to a state that was more home school friendly.

New NSA leak reveals scope of agency's war against crypto

?The National Security Agency boasts the ability to compromise computer protocols meant to encrypt private internet data, leaked documents have revealed. But the NSA has fallen short of totally winning its war against crypto.

Classified NSA files taken by former contractor Edward Snowden and published for the first time by Der Spiegel on Sunday reveal that, while the United States’ intelligence agency is indeed adept at cracking encryption, its efforts are no match when it comes to some of the more popular protocols used to keep communications private.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last 6 NSA challenges Mike coded have yet to be broken.

So, even though the NSA boasts about seeing/hearing all of our communications, they really cannot and do not.

Mike and I have speculated that any agents tasked with following our cybertrails have been given that task as punishment duty.

As a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, and participates in community charities, I must be a very dull read! :-)

And Mike, as a truth-teller, who also never advocates violence, could never possibly construed as a "threat" by any thinking person.

FBI forensic lab misconduct could affect 2,600 convictions, 45 death row cases

Nearly every criminal case the FBI and US Justice Department has reviewed during a major investigation that began in 2012 regarding an FBI lab unit has involved flawed forensic testimony, The Washington Post reported.

The review - originally spurred by a Post report in 2012 over flawed forensic testimony by Federal Bureau of Investigation lab technicians that may have led to convictions of hundreds of innocent people - was cut short last August when its findings “troubled the bureau,” according to the Post. The review was ordered by the Justice Department (DOJ) to resume this month, government officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1995, the head of the FBI's own crime lab, Dr. Frederick Whitehurst, blew the whistle on the FBI lab's malpractice, which included rigging lab test results to help gain convictions. The FBI retaliated against Whitehurst, demoting him to the paint chip lab. Whitehurst eventually left the FBI in 1998 with a $1.1 million settlement, and a Presidential Executive Order by George Bush protecting government whistleblowers (President Clinton rescinded portions of that EO following the shoot down of TWA 800).

It would appear that the FBI did not learn any lessons as they are apparently still using the laboratory, not to find the truth, but to score points on a convictions scoreboard!

Economic Terrorism Against Russia Intensifies

Jeff Nielson: The Russian ruble fell a further 7% Monday. What is the “reason” cited in the Corporate media for this latest, further plunge in its “value” (i.e. exchange rate)? An “economic report” which shows that Russia’s economy is shrinking. Here we see the pattern of the economic terrorism perpetrated by the One Bank exposed.

In 2010; the One Bank decided to destroy the economy of Greece. It did so for several reasons. It wanted to “make an example” of Greece for all the other European governments to see. This was deemed essential when (tiny) Iceland successfully broke-free of the control of this crime syndicate after the Crash of ‘08, and reclaimed its own sovereignty. It was not about to allow other European governments to follow that example, and begin to assert their own independence.

Judge Posner’s One-Way Mirror

Now, as reported by Glenn Greenwald, federal judge Richard Posner has come forward to tell us that that is exactly how things should be. “Like so many federal judges,” writes Greenwald, “Judge Posner recognizes rights only when they belong to agents of the state or the economic elite. When it’s ordinary citizens at issue, he snidely rejects any such protections. Of course, this is exactly backwards: those exercising public power (police officers) have a lower entitlement to privacy than private individuals. But power-servants like Judge Posner view only actors of the state and those who serve it (such as himself) as entitled to these prerogatives. That’s become the corrupt essence of the U.S. justice system, and it’s perfectly expressed by Judge Posner’s radically divergent views based on whose privacy is at stake.”

NYPD cop throws man to the ground after spotting him doing Ellen Degeneres’ ‘dance dare’

An online “prankster” was berated and thrown to the ground by New York City police while participating in one of talk show host Ellen Degeneres’ “dance dares,” the Free Thought Project reported.

The victim, who identifies himself as Alexander BOK, posted footage on his YouTube channel of the encounter, which shows several officers crowding around BOK, with one asking him, “Are you f*cking kidding me, bro? Are you a f*cking a*shole?”

BOK explains in another video that he approached the officer from behind as part of a “dance dare” Degeneres made to her viewers earlier this month.

Penn group nixes Chris Hedges as speaker following Israel-ISIS comparison

Former New York Times Middle East bureau chief Chris Hedges said he was disinvited to speak at a University of Pennsylvania conference following a column comparing Israel to ISIS.

Hedges, now a columnist for the Truthdig.com website, was to speak at an April forum on prospects for peace in the Middle East sponsored by the university’s International Affairs Association.

Zachary Michael Belnavis, a student leader of the association, wrote to the lecture agency that his group didn’t see Hedges as a “suitable fit” for the conference.

“We’re saying this in light of a recent article he’s written in which he compares the organization ISIS to Israel (here’s the article in question),” Belnavis wrote. “In light of this comparison, we don’t believe he would be suitable to a co-existence speaker based on this stance he’s taken.”

Man Says Cops Beat Him for Bicycle Violation

San Francisco Police dragged a college student from his house and beat him unconscious without a warrant or probable cause, because he had ridden his bicycle on the sidewalk, the man claims in court.

D’Paris Charles Williams, 21, sued the city and three police officers on Dec. 23 in Federal Court.

Williams, who is African-American, says he had just biked home from a Make-A-Wish Foundation event at about 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 15, 2013 and walked into his home on Maxwell Street.

No sooner had he entered him home than he heard someone say, “Come here,” Williams says.

Isolated Incidents? A Lawsuit is Filed Against the NYPD Every 2 1/2 Hours

New York City comptroller, Scott Stringer, recently released a map of all lawsuits filed against the NYPD in 2013. This graphic representation of police misconduct was then analyzed and compiled into a compelling report which illustrates the dire need of reform.

The report put out by the comptroller’s officer, titled Claimstat, shows that the lawsuits are derived “primarily of allegations of police misconduct, civil rights violations, and injury and/or damage from accidents involving police vehicles.” The report was put out in July and is used as a way of using data-driven methods to try and save money.

However, it doesn’t look like counting the incidents of police brutality is doing anything to save the city money, as Stringer’soriginal report said that the 2015 budget would have to include $674 million for settlements and judgments (an amount greater that the budget for the Parks Department, Department of Aging and New York Public Library combined).

Phily.COM has reported the case of Christos Sourovelis and Doila Welch,who were both caught up in having their homes seized to pay police pensions when the police arrested a relative they claimed was dealing drugs on their properties.

7 Reasons the TSA Sucks (A Security Expert's Perspective)

Email

For a bunch of people in snappy uniforms patting down crotches, the TSA is remarkably unpopular. Nobody likes going through security at the airport, but you probably figured most of it had a point. All those hours spent in line with other shoeless travelers are a necessary precursor to safe flying. It's annoying, but at least it wards off terrorism.

That's all bullshit. The TSA couldn't protect you from a 6-year-old with a water balloon. What are my qualifications for saying that? My name is Rafi Sela, and I was the head of security for the world's safest airport. Here's what your country does wrong.

America’s Toxic Middle East Allies

U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf have a history of directly supporting or at least allowing private funds to flow to terrorist groups. This phenomenon has its roots in the U.S. and Saudi-backed Afghan insurgency against the Soviet Union, which included aid to the so-called “Arab Afghans” who joined the indigenous insurgency. The impact on Saudi society, and the broader Middle East, was profound.

At the same time, Gulf monarchies view these terrorist groups as a serious threat. But the Saudi state is inhibited in dealing with terrorist financing, as it cannot afford to estrange the powerful clerical establishment that permeates society and is comparatively unabashed about funding jihadists.

Leaked ‘kill list’ shows NATO killed Afghan children, civilians in pursuit of low-level Taliban fighters

Drawing information from top secret documents spirited away by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden, Der Spiegel reports that the “kill list” used by NATO forces in Afghanistan included low-ranking members of the Taliban along with drug dealers suspected of supporting them.

As the war in Afghanistan draws to a close after 13 years, new information is becoming available describing NATO conduct in the war-torn nation. According to the newly released documents, NATO maintained an extensive list — including up to 750 names at times – of Afghans (found here) slated for death, including mid- and lower-level Taliban operatives along with drug dealers who allegedly supported the insurgents.

2014 was a year in which we watched the mainstream media devolve into a spot-on depiction of George Orwell's Ministry of Truth, engaging in White House-ordered news story blackouts, CDC-inspired anti-health propaganda that endangered the public and corporate-funded disinfo campaigns disguised as news.

No Charges for Police Chief Who Used Badge to Try and Intimidate Teen into Posing Nude

Seastrand explained, she said, that they would go into the basement. “He said he would grab the station’s camera to shoot a series of nude photos of me, and then he’d hold it over my head for two years to be sure I didn’t commit another crime,” Westfall said.

“That’s when it was really chilling,” she said. “He’s standing there in uniform, he had his gun strapped on his side,” said Janelle Westfall recounting the horror of having a police officer intimidating her asking her to take lewd photos for him.

Seastrand then told Westfall that if she told anyone, he would deny it all.

As soon as she left the station she told her family. She told her uncle and her aunt, who were both police officers, who advised her to write down everything she remembered, while her father called the state police.

Molten metal under Trade Center rubble could NOT have come from jet fuel

The U.S. government, the 9/11 Commission, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, FEMA and the mainstream media all do the same thing. When they can’t explain something that contradicts the official version of events on 9/11, they simply pretend the questions don’t exist.

Among the most crucial examples of this are the large pools of molten metal found under the rubble of the two twin towers of the World Trade Center and Building 7. The molten metal burned under the rubble for weeks, with the final fires not being extinguished until December of 2001, three months after the disaster.

The official story can’t explain this; it doesn’t even try. That’s because the molten metal points to a controlled demolition – explosive charges combined with a material that causes a chemical reaction creating extreme heat to cut through steel beams.

Citing a letter received from a concerned daycare worker in the College Station area of central Texas, VacTruth.com reports that at least one daycare center in the region, Covenant Presbyterian Children's Center (CPCC), has implemented the egregious policy, which is akin to forcibly labeling all resisters with a giant scarlet letter in order to coerce compliance.

As more cities ban homeless camps, advocates cry foul

For Teresa Sigerson, a former waitress who has lived under a Chicago expressway bridge for three years, the camp she shares with eight others provides shelter, companionship and some measure of security.

"There's safety in numbers," said Sigerson, 51, who begs during the day and sleeps between concrete bridge pillars under a highway northwest of downtown. "Everything's convenient here - you're by the stores, the highway."

This year, Sigerson almost lost her space when construction began on tall concrete barriers on the raised slabs where the homeless were make their beds. The project, which was halted this summer, was meant to dislodge the decade-old camp in Chicago's Avondale neighborhood.

No charges for Bush-era torturers under Obama

Despite injustices committed by the Bush administration after the September 11th attack, Obama refuses to hold the wrong-doers accountable.

Though he admits the practices were torturous, and therefore criminal, he chooses to remain "agnostic" about whether or not the tactics worked and does not plan to pursue the issue further.

His reasoning for not taking appropriate actions in response to the recent release of the torture report may have something to do with his close ties to the CIA director.

Ukraine’s Government Is Starving Residents of the Breakaway Region

Amnesty International has found that “the already desperate situation in eastern Ukraine is being made even worse by” so-called ‘volunteer’ or mercenary forces for the Ukrainian Government, which are blocking the supply of food to residents in that region, and trying to starve them to death.

Thus, “The region is facing a humanitarian disaster with many already at risk of starvation,” said Denis Krivosheev, acting Director of Europe and Central Asia for Amnesty International, on Wed., December 24th.

Amnesty International reports that, “Over half of the population in these areas are now entirely dependent on food aid.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely certifiably criminal, on the part of the Ukrainian government.

After Scrutiny, C.I.A. Mandate Is Untouched

Over a lunch in Washington in 1976, James J. Angleton, for years the ruthless chief of counterintelligence at the C.I.A., likened the agency to a medieval city occupied by an invading army.

“Only, we have been occupied by Congress,” he told a young congressional investigator. “With our files rifled, our officials humiliated, and our agents exposed.”

Nearly four decades later, another Senate committee’s allegations that the C.I.A. has engaged in torture, lying and cover-up have stirred echoes of the Church era — raising the question of whether the agency is in for another period of change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the CIA will continue to operate outside of US laws,and international norms of decency, including the continuance of torture with which to obtain "confessions" germane to supporting the official governmental narrative.

And I for one do not support this kind of behaviour on the part of the CIA or any other governmental agency,and know, for a fact, that I am not alone.

Bahrain Adopts Israel Strategy To Alter Demographics

Prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab accused Bahrain’s ruling family of seeking to change Bahrain’s demography by adopting a strategy similar to that used by the UK in the creation of Israel.

Talking to Iranian news channel Press TV, Rajab said the systematic naturalization of foreigners and the deportation of locals after revoking their citizenships are proof that al-Khalifa family is implementing the same strategy that Britain implemented in Palestine.

Dozens of Bahrainis have had their citizenship revoked and several have also been deported since Bahrain adopted the Bahraini Citizenship Law last year stipulating that suspects convicted of “terrorist” acts could be stripped of their nationality.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

And a short memo to the Al-Khalifa monarchy: in doing this, you are sowing the seeds for this monarchy's destruction.

And I say this because there will be a point, when these "newly minted" citizens will begin to chafe under your dictatorship, and begin to demand what the Sunni members of your country have been demanding, so far, peacefully; and that is true representation in government..

And what are they going to do when they don't get that?!? Has anyone in the monarchy or your advisers thought this through?!?

The late President Kennedy said it best; when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

With these moves, you may have postponed a revolution, and bought yourselves some time; but just barely.

Supreme Court Rules 8-1 Citizens Have No Protection Against 4th Amendment Violations by Police Ignorant of the Law

In a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens' Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a "reasonable" mistake about the law on the part of police. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that "ignorance of the law is no excuse," the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not legally justified can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law.

Snowden Docs reveal 5-Nation Cointelpro Ops

Famed journalist Glenn Greenwald, most known for being the main reporter who received and exposed NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s stolen files, has just released another shocking global espionage revelation. Except this one doesn’t expose overzealous spying upon all of humanity. It exposes a worldwide cointelpro operation being perpetrated by 5 Western governments.

Police forces are in the business of protecting the populace from criminals and harm. It’s mostly a defensive job. But in the mid-twentieth century, the FBI expanded their mission to include going on the offense, not against criminals, but against anyone the government deemed the ‘enemy’. Thanks to a detailed report from journalist Glenn Greenwald and the accompanying 50-page secret document from the British government, it’s now apparent cointelpro operations are back.

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums.

The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed?Dec26

Well, let me put it to you this way. What would happen to Whole Foods’ program of voluntary GMO labeling if there were mandatory labeling across America, or in any state where Whole Foods does business?

Can you guess?

I’ll break it down. Whole Foods has pledged to put “non-GMO” labels on their products by 2018. They’ll do everything they can to sell as many non-GMO products as possible. The products that don’t carry the non-GMO seal will obviously be GMO, and customers can avoid them if they want to.

On the other hand, if suddenly, out of the blue, mandatory labeling became law, the whole voluntary non-GMO label enterprise would be obsolete. Why voluntarily put that label on products when mandatory labeling handles the whole issue?

“We put non-GMO labels on our food. Aren’t we wonderful?”

“Not really. The mandatory labels tell me everything that’s GMO. All the other products are non-GMO. Thanks, but no thanks.”

‘Everything Is In Place And Nobody Can Stop Us Now’ – Dr Day 1969 Lecture

The ‘1969 Day’ lecture has been referenced in many comments (mainly by Ned) – and thus I have posted the full Rense article here below. Dr. Day seemed to have anesthetized his audience into the belief that nothing could stop the well laid plans of this powerful (NWO) group. Well, we know, the natural order of systems is that they flourish and then decline. And in some ways, this can also be viewed as a parasite – host relationship. The success of a parasite is that it’s host is oblivious to the parasite. And as the host is sapped of ‘energy’ and resources, it has to adapt – thus the two are in a constant process of co-evolution. The danger, however, for the parasite is that: 1) the host becomes aware of the parasite, and 2) it has evolved to survive only on its host.

Why America would be foolish to wage a cyber-war against North Korea

North Korea's creaky internet crashed for nine hours on Monday, and is now mostly back up. This outage is probably no coincidence. Many observers assume that the Obama administration is behind it, retaliating to what the government called North Korean "cyber vandalism" aimed at Sony Pictures. That attack, as everyone knows, led Sony to cancel the release of a comedy, The Interview, about the assassination of North Korea's young leader, Kim Jong Un.

If President Obama did launch an undeclared cyberwar against North Korea, it may well be the equivalent of Bill Clinton launching cruise missiles at Osama bin Laden's empty training camps back in the 1990s. Clinton's salvo was never a real strategy to deal with a growing threat, and resulted only in intensified attacks. Obama may be making a similar mistake now.

Christmas in America: Growing Poverty, Unemployment and Homelessness in the World’s Richest Country

Poverty is a growth industry. So is human misery. America is banana republicanized. Unfit to live in for growing millions.

Democracy is pure fantasy. A facade masking New World Order harshness. Monied interests run things. Class war rages.

Inside the bubble it’s paradise. Outside it’s dystopian hell. America is venal. Corrupted. Depraved. Degenerate. Too broken to fix.

“The foul stench of corruption and hypocrisy that emanates from Washington is the smell of a dying country,” says Paul Craig Roberts.

Good tidings and cheer at Christmas and throughout the year are for America’s privileged alone. No joy to the world for most others.

NSA releases decade’s worth of damaging intelligence reports in Christmas Eve document dump

At approximately 1:30 p.m. EST on Christmas Eve, the National Security Agency responded to a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Civil Liberties Union by releasing more than a decade’s worth of incriminating quarterly and annual reports, David Lerman at Bloomberg News reports.

According to the heavily redacted reports to the President’s Intelligence Oversight Board, intelligence operatives routinely emailed private data on American citizens to unauthorized recipients, stored that data in unsecured computers, and retained it long after laws required it be destroyed.

“The government conducts sweeping surveillance under this authority — surveillance that increasingly puts Americans’ data in the hands of the NSA,” the ACLU’s Patrick C. Toomey told Bloomberg News in an email. “Despite that fact, this spying is conducted almost entirely in secret and without legislative or judicial oversight.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no legislative or judicial oversight, because, most likely the NSA has ALL the dirt on all who might be in a position to try to stop this total surveillance, and they have been threatened into silence.

How quickly this nation has morphed from the "land of the free and the home of the brave" into "the land of the cowed and the home of the surveilled"!

And please remember: everything Hitler did was absolutely legal, at the time he did it.

How The CIA's Torture Program Is Destroying The Key Foreign Power The US Had: The Moral High Ground

Over a year ago, we wrote about a wonderful piece in Foreign Affairs by Henry Farrell and Martha Finnemore, noting that the real "danger" of the Snowden and Manning revelations was that it effectively killed off the US's ability to use hypocrisy as a policy tool. Here was the key bit (though the whole article is worth reading):

The deeper threat that leakers such as Manning and Snowden pose is more subtle than a direct assault on U.S. national security: they undermine Washington’s ability to act hypocritically and get away with it. Their danger lies not in the new information that they reveal but in the documented confirmation they provide of what the United States is actually doing and why. When these deeds turn out to clash with the government’s public rhetoric, as they so often do, it becomes harder for U.S. allies to overlook Washington’s covert behavior and easier for U.S. adversaries to justify their own.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, here is the heart and soul of the US government at this point in its history; it will lie, cheat, jail, torture, extrajudicially assassinate, and wage war against people who get in the way of the country's (and world's) monied interests.

To all those countries which have natural resources the US government wants, be very aware that it will do everything in its power to destabilize your government, and put in a US-centric government that will do its bidding; failing that, the US government will wage outright war to get those resources.

And to its citizens: you have become completely expendable, because your alleged representatives only represent those corporations which so lavishly fund their election cycles. You and your needs and issues have become irreverent, because it is only the needs and issues of those major corporations which are addressed.

Your jobs will continue to be offshored, outsourced, reducing you to working several minimum wage jobs just to survive, if you can find them.

You will be taxed into poverty, thrown out on the streets when you can't pay the rent, and your homelessness will become criminalized, at which point you will most likely languish in a for-profit prison, as a slave laborer there.

That is a painfully, bleakly honest portrait of this government going into 2015.

Brendon O’Connell Rearrested, Exposing Jewish Power Configuration’s Stranglehold Over Australia

Mouqawamah Music’s sources have confirmed that anti-Zionist, anti-Jewish-supremacist activist, political prisoner and target of an obscene state security crackdown Brendon O’Connell has been rearrested by Western Australian police after he allegedly violated the Orwellian bail condition of “DON’T OFFEND ANYONE VIA ELECTRONIC MEANS”. The person in question who Mr. O’Connell supposedly offended? One Steve Lieblich, the editor of Jewish Issues Watchdog, an author at prominent Australian-Kiwi Jewish-Zionist hasbara rag J-Wire and the Jewish Community Council Western Australia Director of Public Affairs. In other words, Lieblich is a Jewish supremacist networker very intimately involved in the dissemination of Zionist propaganda and the furtherance of World Jewry’s hegemonic agenda. The insidiousness gets deeper however.

UK police misuse pre-charge bail to ban activists from protesting – report

UK police forces are misusing pre-charge bail by banning hundreds of protestors from attending lawful demonstrations, The Guardian newspaper has revealed. Of all bailed protesters, eighty-five percent are never charged with any crime.

Since 2008 police have arrested at least 855 people in England and Wales and then released them on pre-charge bail, setting a date to return to the police station. Until their return, those bailed were prohibited from attending any demonstration. However, 85 percent, or about 732 people, have never been charged, according to data the Guardian collected using the Freedom of Information Act.

IRS mistakenly penalizes Christine O’Donnell a second time, placed levy on bank accounts

Ms. O’Donnell told The Washington Times that she discovered the levy when she couldn’t access her checking account as she was preparing to visit relatives over Thanksgiving.

US police brutality protests hit home with Palestinian prisoners

In a letter written from an Israeli jail cell, Palestinian political prisoner Ameer Makhoul sends his salutations to African Americans protesting the police killing of unarmed Black men, women and youths.

“Even within Israeli jail, very much far away from you, we are mourning your beloved,” writes Makhoul in his 9 December letter.

Makhoul’s letter, which can be read in full at the bottom of this page, emphasizes the universality of the protests in the United States.

“Such racist official violence exasperates the conscience of all, and of course all 7,000 [Palestinian political prisoners] in Israel jail who seek freedom, liberty and justice for themselves as well as for their people of Palestine,” Makhoul states.

“Your cause is touching hearts everywhere,” he adds. “Your protest is on behalf of all humanity. Your voice is our voice … the voice of all free people.”

FBI keeps lid on sniper plot to kill ‘Occupy Wall Street’ organizers

Heavily redacted FBI memos confirm that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aware of a plot to assassinate the Houston organizers of “Occupy Wall Street,” but the agency has managed to withhold the details from the American public using the worn-out excuse that transparency compromises national security.

According to the agency’s official memos, an unnamed party or agency “planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors in Houston, Texas, if deemed necessary… [Redacted] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles.”

Govt abusing Bill of Rights with digital surveillance loopholes, lawyers allege

Government and corporate entities have far too much leeway to hack into webcams in order to conduct surveillance, and laws supposedly designed to protect victims of such an intrusion are inadequate, according to a new report.

The report, titled 'Digital Peepholes,' highlights how easy it is for law enforcement and other government agencies, as well as corporations, to violate Americans’ Third and Fourth Amendment rights.

Constitutional “guarantees should preclude the government from remotely activating webcams, given that webcams are frequently located in the home, where privacy rights are at their strongest,” wrote the report’s authors, all of the Institute for Science, Law and Technology at the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law.

Citizenship Revoked, Beaten and Threatened With Sexual Abuse – For Refusing to Spy

It all started in 2012, when then 23 year old former British care worker who was married with child, Mahdi Hashi, received word from his family in Britain that Home Secretary Teresa May had just revoked his British citizenship. This we learn, was all part of May’s secretly ramping-up a program to strip citizens of their British passports.

To lodge an appeal, Hashi had to travel to neighboring Djibouti, where Djibouti police interrogated him first, before handing him over to US handlers. Later we learn that after landing at Heathrow, Hashi was a victim of ‘spook blackmailing’ by MI5 who told him that his ‘suspect status’ would be cleared off his record but only if he ‘co-operated’ with clandestine gov’t agency – most likely playing the role of informant to snitch on other Somalians and produce ‘intel’ for the intelligence services.

Man sent back to prison for getting job that started too early in the morning

A prisoner who was released on licence is spending Christmas back in jail after he was punished for taking a job which started at 6.15 in the morning, 45 minutes before his night-time curfew expired. His parole was supervised by a private company, one of 21 put in place in June after the Probation Service stopped having day-to-day supervision of short-term released prisoners.

Ashley Stansfield, 48, was released from an open prison in August. He was serving an 18-month sentence for conspiracy to steal a car. He was on licence, wore a tag and was made subject to a night-time curfew.

Almost immediately he started looking for work. In September, he was given a trial as a driver by a delivery company in London. He was then told he had the job and bought his own uniform.

Stansfield, from Finsbury Park, north London, told his supervising parole officer that he needed to start work at 6.15am but that his curfew did not end until 7am.

Seattle Police Department looking for ‘a few good hackers’ to help it doctor dashboard cam footage

The Seattle Police Department (SPD) hosted a contest last week in which it invited hackers to compete to see who could redact dashboard and body camera footage most efficiently.

According to the official site for the SPD’s first-ever “HACKATHON,” the goal is “looking for a better, faster way to redact [the 1,612,554] videos and make them accessible as public records.”

John Vibes at the Free Thought Project does not accept the SPD’s claim that the “HACKATHON” is “only seeking to protect the identities of innocent people who may get caught on camera.”

“It is only a small change in coding that is necessary to alter how the entire footage is edited, so this cover story may be nothing more than an excuse to censor the footage,” he wrote. “Also, even if they are telling the truth about their motives, this new development still shows that the footage is only as transparent as the police will allow it to be.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These techniques will ultimately NOT be about transparency, but changing the video narrative to the Seattle Police Department's liking and legal needs.

Cops Handcuff & Shackle 4-Year-Old Boy, Haul Him Off to Jail for a Temper Tantrum

A four-year-old little boy was handcuffed and then shackled by the local sheriff and taken away in a squad car, after the principal at Nathanael Greene Primary School failed to calm him down.

Back in October the boy allegedly threw blocks, climbed over desks, hit, scratched, and kicked the principal and the director of special education. Unable to gain control of a 4-year-old, the school made the ridiculous decision to call a sheriff’s deputy who is assigned to the schools.

“The boy was out of control, basically, throwing his arms around and kicking– trying to kick the deputy, trying to run away, and the deputy felt that putting the handcuffs on him was for his safety as well as everybody else’s,” County Sheriff Steven Smith said.

Tracy Wood, the boy’s mother, says the school called her to pick up her son, but when she got there, police had already taken him to the station.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So they had no better tools to calm the kid down than police handcuffs and leg shackles?!?

I have worked with special needs kids many years ago, and there are many, many other ways to calm a kid down who is acting like this.

That they believed they had no better tools than the ones they used says volumes about elementary education in this country, and demonstrates a real lack of teacher training to deal with temperamental children.

Surprise! IRS is as crooked as other government agencies, report reveals

Rep. Darrell Issa, who will be turning over his gavel as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to fellow Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz in January, on Tuesday released a follow up congressional report on alleged corruption, fraud and overall political shenanigans occurring at the Internal Revenue Service. The report should not surprise any clear-thinking American taxpayer since those who actually paid attention to the IRS probe know that the tax-collecting bureaucracy is as crooked -- if not more crooked -- than other federal agencies involved in scandalous conduct, claim a number of law enforcement officials and political strategists.

CBS2 Exclusive: LI Woman Sues United Airlines Following Arrest On Flight

Mamakos said she resisted the arrest because she had paid thousands in airfare for the round trip flight, and claims unfriendly flight attendants overreacted when she tried to move to an empty row after the doors closed for take off.

It was the third leg of a long cross-country trip, and she hoped to sleep.

“One of the stewardesses said ‘Oh no you don’t.’ Which stopped me in my tracks,” she said.

So Mamakos moved toward the front of the plane.

“So I went forward and then another stewardess came along and said ‘Give me your credit card,'” she said.

Mamakos, a registered nurse, was in an empty exit row emergency seat and was told this would be a costly upgrade.

“At that point I decided no, I’m not paying $109 and I’ll go back to my seat,” she said.

Seated now, resigned to her crowded row, an announcement was made.

“I heard the captain say ‘There is a lady that wants to get off the plane on this flight, so we have to wait,” she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last time I did a red-eye flight, the plane was mostly empty and the pilot made an announcement that we could all move to other seats in our own sections to get more room, which many did, to stretch out and get some sleep. The current model seems to be "You VILL sit in ze seat you haf paid for UND you vill NOT move, schweinhunt!"

This is a problem for two reasons.

1. Product development people will tell you that customer satisfaction is not based solely on getting what the customer has paid for but in large part the perception that they got a little bit more. Successful products and services are those where the customer discovers after the purchase that there was a little something added; an extra feature on the gizmo, an extra bit of comfort, and so forth. So I can guarantee that in satisfaction ratings, United is not going to score very high with this attitude.

2. The US tourist industry is already in the Al Qaeda because of TSA abuses, and stories like this going global (and it SHOULD go global) will only discourage more people from tourism in the US. The loss to the Alaska ski business caused by this stunt is well above the $109 fee United wanted to charge this woman, which they did not get anyway. And I hope this woman wins her lawsuit in a huge amount to remind the corporations that their business is taking care of the customer above fattening their stockholders' wallets!

Georgia VIPER Unit Accused Of Illegal Strip Searches

Now we know what those TSA organized "VIPER" teams are doing since being tasked to patrol the streets of America, namely the same as they do at our nation's airports -- organized mass molestation on an unprecedented scale.

In this case out of Georgia, a VIPER team composed of officers from the Forest Park Police Department has been accused by a plurality of victims of conducting illegal strip searches, allegedly telling one suspect to "pull his pants down, bend over, squat and cough."

Some of the strip searches were so disturbing they reportedly ended in tears.

The accused "crimes"? Such horrors as driving with "expired tags," or allegedly "not using a turn signal."

CIA Leak Reveals Who Gets Pulled Aside for Extra Airport Screening

The basic tips: Don’t bring too many new items in your luggage (sorry, Christmas gifts); don’t be nervous and visibly sweating; don’t change your itinerary within a day of your flight; don’t be weird about passport screening procedures; and make sure your luggage isn’t disproportionate to your purported reasons for your trip, which could mean how it’s packed or how fancy the stuff on the inside is.

NYPD Union President Patrick Lynch Is Completely Nuts: A History

Patrick Lynch is the 51-year-old president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the largest and most influential union of the New York City Police Department. You might recognize his name: Over the weekend, Lynch blamed Bill de Blasio for the Saturday deaths of two Brooklyn cops who were murdered by a lone gunman from Georgia. “That blood on the hands,” he said at a press conference, “starts on the steps of City Hall, in the office of the mayor.”

To understand why he would say something so wrong and inflammatory, you need to delve into Lynch’s long, checkered history of issuing similarly insane statements. His public declarations over the past 15 years are essentially pro-police agitprop: Cops can do no wrong, while victims of their state-sanctioned violence always had it coming. They are also a deep well of masculine anxiety, hurt feelings, and barely disguised racism.

Here are some of Lynch’s greatest hits. Please consult them whenever he opens his mouth in the future.

Protesters to Defy De Blasio, Plan to ‘Shut Down’ Fifth Ave. in New York

Protesters in New York City plan to “shut down” 5th Avenue, a main shopping area in Manhattan, tonight. The call to do so happens after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asked for any protests to stop until both recently murdered NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu are buried this weekend.

According to reports, The Answer Coalition said it would go through with the march, which it says was planned long before Saturday night’s murders. They denounced the mayor for asking for a moratorium on protests, saying that would be an “outrageous” attempt to chill free speech.

Palestine, Israel and the News Media

On November 18 of this year, the news media was awash with the news of the killing of four rabbis at a synagogue in Jerusalem. This is headline news for CNN and the New York Times, the latter of which had the nerve to say this: “Witnesses and Israeli leaders were particularly horrified at the religious overtones of an attack on a synagogue….”

Where, one may naively ask, were these august news outlets during the past several weeks, as Israeli settlers, protected and even aided by Israeli soldiers, desecrated sacred mosques in Jerusalem? Where were the horrified reports of dead and bloodied Palestinians? What about the complete desecration of Muslim holy sites? Were no witnesses and Palestinian ‘leaders horrified at the religious overtones of an attack on a’ mosque?

Obama Administration Aims to Create ‘Insider Threat’ Job Specialty to Plug Leaks

A New Year’s goal of the federal office responsible for averting employee leaks is to make a career out of catching so-called insider threats.

It is a delicate task to simultaneously guard hard-working federal personnel and expose the bad apples. And it takes different talents than those one would find in a counterintelligence analyst, human resources professional or information security professional. The insider threat discipline melds all those disciplines.

"It’s a privilege to work in that program. And the only reason that you are there is to help protect your colleagues, not to out them. So, we’ve got to professionalize that workforce of people who do this for a living," said Patricia Larsen, co-director of the National Insider Threat Task Force. "They have to view themselves as part of a community."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Ukraine's Poroshenko is not the only guy establishing his "Ministry of Truth: it appears that Obama's administration is equally as paranoid as that of Poroshenko!

And a memo to this Administration: the way not to have insider leaks is to do everything above-board, and do the things which are morally right, and not just for the benefit of the few, and monied.

This concept is such a simple, easy one that even a child can understand it.

CIA Agents Reportedly Impersonated Senate Staffers While Torture Report Was Being Produced

CIA agents “impersonated Senate staffers” while the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was producing its report on the agency’s rendition, detention and interrogation program, according to Huffington Post.

“According to sources familiar with the CIA inspector general report that details the alleged abuses by agency officials,” journalists Ali Watkins and Ryan Grim reported, “CIA agents impersonated Senate staffers in order to gain access to Senate communications and drafts of the Intelligence Committee investigation.”

A source “familiar” with the inspector general report, which remains classified, told Huffington Post, “If people knew the details of what they actually did to hack into the Senate computers to go search for the torture document, jaws would drop. It’s straight out of a movie.”

Japan starts enforcing secrecy law

Defying widespread opposition, Japan has brought into force a law enabling it to imprison those leaking sensitive information.

The law took effect on Wednesday, empowering Tokyo to call what it considers to be highly-sensitive information in the areas of diplomacy, defense, counterterrorism, and counterespionage as “special secrets.”

Those found guilty of leaking sensitive information could face up to 10 years in prison, compared to the one-year sentence that whistleblowers have faced until now.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the law is necessary to enable Japan to share intelligence with its allies, notably the United States.

France-based NGO, Reporters Without Borders, has called the law “an unprecedented threat to freedom of information.”

Native American Man Who Attended Anti-Police Brutality Rally Is Killed By Police Next Day

A man who participated in an anti-police brutality march and rally in Rapid City, South Dakota, on Friday was shot and killed by police a day later, according to reports.

Rapid City Police identified the victim as Allen Locke, 30, of Rapid City. At about 6 p.m. Saturday, police were dispatched to a subdivision known as Lakota Community Homes to remove a person from a residence there, the Rapid City Journalreported.

Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom, who was on sight investigating the shooting, told the Rapid City Journal that Officer Anthony Meirose fired his weapon after Locke allegedly charged him with a knife. Police are saying Locke was shot up to five times by Officer Meirose. Locke was pronounced dead at the scene.

Innocent Man Raided, Tased, Beaten, & Shot By a Corrupt SWAT Team who Lied to Get the Raid

A completely innocent man was shot, tasered, brutally beaten, and had stun grenades thrown at him by vicious and incompetent SWAT officers. Then, those same officers tried to cover up their mistake by charging the victim, Chad Chadwick, with six criminal offenses including felony assault on a police officer.

This incident happened in 2011, but it has taken Chadwick three years and his entire life savings, to finally beat the charges that he was falsely accused of. Last month, a jury found Chad Chadwick not guilty of interfering with police. With tears in their eyes members of the jury offered the exonerated defendant comforting hugs, according to My Fox Houston.

“They tried to make me a convict. It broke me financially, bankrupted me. I used my life savings, not to mention, I lost my kids,” said Chadwick.

Cop charged with choking and beating a HOSPITAL PATIENT - after he tried to claim the victim attacked him but was caught on video

A San Francisco sheriff's deputy allegedly choked and beat a hospital patient who walked with a cane - then lied on the police report to cover his tracks.

Michael Lewelling, 33, was accused of approaching a sleeping man as he started to wake up, knocking away his walking cane, grabbing his neck, then arresting him.

He then filed a police report claiming that the man started the fight by attacking him with the cane, according to authorities, who say surveillance video proves he was lying.

Lewelling, who has reportedly been with the San Francisco Sheriff's Department for five years, was arrested Friday and charged with perjury, filing a false police report and battery.

Innocent Man Tasered, Beaten While Naked In the Shower and Framed Later

“While I had my hands up naked in the shower they shot me with a 40 millimeter non-lethal round,” said Chadwick.

A second stun grenade soon followed.

“I turned away, the explosion went off, I opened my eyes the lights are out and here comes a shield with four or five guys behind it. They pinned me against the wall and proceeded to beat the crap out of me,” said Chadwick.

That’s when officers shot the unarmed Chadwick in the back of the head with a Taser at point blank range.

“They claimed I drew down with a shampoo bottle and a body wash bottle,” said Chadwick . . .

“They grabbed me by my the one hand that was out of the shower and grabbed me by my testicles slammed me on my face on the floor and proceeded to beat me more.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I so lovehow police departments around the country are interpreting the phrase "to protect and serve" these days.

What this man desperately needed was to be very gently taken into custody for a complete psych evaluation. Threatening that he had a shotgun did not help either, but the SWAT team, after thoroughly searching his home, and finding no such gun, should have collectively had the horse sense to realize that this statement was made in a drunken stupor.

People with skills and kids, get the hell out this country while you still can.

Cops Beat Man & 7-Month Pregnant Wife then Deleted the Video, But it Survived on the Cloud

The Denver police department has been accused of using excessive force after a video, which they allegedly deleted, survived on the cloud and was turned into FOX 31.

The incident started as two officers approached David Nelson Flores, who was in his vehicle with his seven-and-a-half-months pregnant wife and their child, to shake him down after suspecting him of being in possession of a substance deemed illegal by the state.

Upon their approach, officers said they saw Flores put a white sweat sock in his mouth. Because the US is involved in an immoral war on drugs, this ‘sock in mouth’ move apparently gave the officers the right to yank Flores out of his car and proceed to pummel the man on the asphalt.

Cyber Command investment ensures hackers targeting U.S. face retribution

In the shadows of the Sony hacking incident and North Korea’s massive Internet outage, the Pentagon has quietly built a multibillion-dollar cyberwarfare capability and trained its commanders to integrate these weapons into their battlefield plans.

U.S. Cyber Command was officially stood up in 2010, based at Fort Meade in the Maryland suburbs of the nation’s capital, consolidating intelligence and cyberwarfare capabilities of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines under one house. Soon, billions of dollars were being invested in the concept that cyberattackers targeting America should be prepared to sustain their own damage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cyber Command will be no more effective at harming the attackers than the NSA is at preventing the attacks in the first place.

It’s official: IRS employees biased against conservatives

One IRS employee called a conservative group “icky” while another griped that they would probably “have to” approve a different group’s application for nonprofit status, according to the latest findings Tuesday by the House Oversight Committee.

In a new staff report released by Rep. Darrell Issa, the California Republican who is term-limited as chairman of the committee, investigators also found IRS officials had “repeatedly changed their stories” about what went on and who was responsible for targeting the conservative and tea party groups who applied for nonprofit status.

This Was One Of The Biggest Lies Ever Told

In 2006, Andrew Natsios, administrator of USAID, went on a publicity tour to assuage American fears that the impending war and its aftermath were perfectly reasonable expenditures for the American taxpayer. In this Nightline interview with Ted Koppel he brazenly makes the ludicrous case that the reconstruction of Iraq would cost only $1.7bn. Koppel is so incredulous, he returns to the subject three times, and each time Natsios gets more and more adamant. With the benefit of hindsight its clear now that not only was this a bold face lie, but one that any rational person could have seen through.

The NY Fed shipped approximately $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008. In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 300 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons.

Since then there have been audits, congressional hearing and investigations that can barely account for a small percentage of where that money actually ended up.

Sandra Gives The Game Away: Jobcentres Given Sheriff’s Stars For Hitting Benefit Sanction Targets

Sandra Lambert, manager of 149 Jobcentres and self-styled lifestyle guru, has spent much of the last few days frantically blocking people on twitter who have been taking the piss out of the cringemaking motivational advice she inflicts on the poor bastards who work for her.

She wasn’t fast enough however to hide the tweet in which she awarded a Texas style sherriff’s badge to Jobcentres in the midlands for upholding their DMA decision rate – as spotted by @refuted. A DMA means a referral to a Jobcentre ‘decision maker’ to process a benefit sanction. It is the second time this month a DWP manager has been exposed praising their staff for hitting benefit sanction targets - targets that Iain Duncan Smith’s department have repeatedly claimed do not exist.

Google Reveals Government Attempt to Scrub Alleged Prisoner Abuse

Google on Monday released information about the government requests it receives to take down its content, revealing attempts in the U.S. to scrub content related to alleged prisoner abuse, sex crimes with a minor, and fraudulent business dealings.

The search giant for the first time released specific examples of takedown requests from governments around the world alongside its semiannual transparency report, providing a fuller look at how law-enforcement agencies and others attempt to police search results and YouTube videos.

One such example recounts a request from the Georgia Department of Corrections to "remove a YouTube video depicting alleged abuse of inmates."

For those dedicated to expanding globalism, there is nothing else in the world so important as central banking. It is the Monarch of Memes. Its value must be always endorsed.

China reluctant to join U.S. in punishing North Korea over cyberattacks

China said Tuesday there was no proof that North Korea was behind a cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment, signaling its reluctance to side with the United States over the incident, while also rejecting speculation it could have cut off Pyongyang’s Internet access as punishment.

Asked about American requests for help from China to punish North Korea for cyberattacks, Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China’s foreign ministry, said the United States and North Korea needed to communicate directly.

She said Beijing had not seen proof of who was behind the attack on Sony. “We need sufficient evidence before drawing any conclusion,” she said at a news conference.

Federal Court Gives “Early Christmas Present” to War Criminals Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Others, Immunizing Them From Civil Inquiry Regarding Iraq War

Late Friday, a federal judge dismissed a civil claim filed against George W. Bush and other high-ranking officials regarding their conduct in planning and waging the Iraq War, and immunized them from further proceedings.

“This is an early Christmas present to former Bush Administration officials from the federal court,” Inder Comar of Comar Law said. Comar brought the claim on behalf of an Iraqi refugee and single mother, Sundus Shaker Saleh. “This was a serious attempt to hold US leaders accountable under laws set down at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946. I am very disappointed at the outcome.”

Ferguson Prosecutor Gives Free Pass To Witnesses Who Lied Before Grand Jury

The St. Louis prosecutor in charge of the Ferguson grand jury today acknowledged that witnesses “absolutely lied under oath” before the panel, but said that none of the perjurers--including the unmasked "Witness 40"--would face criminal charges.

During a KTRS radio interview, Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said that, “Early on I decided that anyone who claimed to have witnessed anything would be presented to the grand jury,” even if investigators questioned their truthfulness.

McCulloch (seen above left) said that he opted to present “anybody and everybody” to the grand jury, adding that it was the responsibility of panel members to judge the credibility of individual witnesses.

Referring to “Witness 40,” whom TSG identified this week as a 45-year-old St. Louis woman named Sandra McElroy, McCulloch said she “clearly wasn’t present” when Michael Brown was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson.

Bill de Blasio demands halt to protests, political debate until after funerals for murdered officers

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says protests and political debate over police tactics should be halted until the funerals are held for two officer shot and killed inside their patrol car.

A Startling Admission by the Ferguson Prosecutor Could Restart the Case Against Darren Wilson

Ferguson prosecutor Bob McCulloch admitted that he presented evidence he knew to be false to the grand jury considering charges against Darren Wilson. In an interview with radio station KTRS on Friday, McCulloch said that he decided to present witnesses that were “clearly not telling the truth” to the grand jury. Specifically, McCulloch acknowledged he permitted a woman who “clearly wasn’t present when this occurred” to testify as an eyewitness to the grand jury for several hours. The woman, Sandra McElroy, testified that Michael Brown charged at Wilson “like a football player, head down,” supporting Wilson’s claim that he killed Brown in self-defense.

80,000 Face Benefit Sanctions Misery This Christmas – Including 6,800 Disabled People

More than 80,000 families face a bleak and miserable Christmas because of punitive and unfair benefit sanctions, the PCS union says.

PCS say an estimated £20 million – £250 per person on average – in benefits will be withheld from poor and desperate job seekers during the run-up to Christmas and the new year festivities.

Analysing figures from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the PCS has calculated that more than 74,000 unemployed people will lose more than £19 million in Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) payments.

Every step of the way Sony has been faced with no-win situations and just plain bad luck.

"Starting IMMEDIATELY: At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be. “IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest. “These are precautions that were taken in the 1970's when police officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis. “The mayor’s hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a ‘wartime’ police department.

Democrats Bow Down to Wall Street

This week, Bill speaks with outspoken veteran journalist John R. MacArthur, president and publisher of Harper’s Magazine, about the problems with TPP, which is being negotiated in secret, behind closed doors. MacArthur says that the “free trade” agreement will take jobs away from Americans: “I guarantee you, this is a way to send more jobs [abroad], particularly to Vietnam and Malaysia.”

Obama’s commitment to trade is just another example of his indebtedness to Wall Street for massive campaign contributions. Hillary Clinton, who MacArthur describes as to the right of Americans’ political beliefs, may be scaring off progressives looking to run in 2016 as she is “very much in harmony” with Wall Street.

King of Common Core Pearson Closes Charitable Foundation Amid Legal Troubles

The Pearson Charitable Foundation states it is closing following “a decision by Pearson plc to integrate all of its corporate responsibility activities and functions into its business as a way to maximize social impact and to no longer fund the Foundation as the primary vehicle for its philanthropic and community activities.”

The truth is, however, that corporate Pearson is closing down its charitable foundation following problems with the law that have exposed some of its methods in acquiring business.

Hacking Collective Anonymous Says FBI Is Lying, “North Korea Is Not Source Of Hack”

Having confirmed unequivocally, in a statement by the FBI and reiterated by President Obama, that “the North Korean government is responsible” for hacking Sony, it appears the YouTube-less ‘evidence’ the FBI provided is being questioned by the hacking-collective ‘Anonymous’ and former Lulzsec hacker Sabu. As The Daily Beast reports, the hackers blasted, the North Koreans “don’t have the technical capabilities,” and added “we all know the hacks didn’t come from North Korea, and “all of the evidence FBI cites would be trivial things to do if a hacker was trying to misdirect attention to DPRK.” Meanwhile, on Saturday afternoon, Guardians of Peace, the hacking group that’s so far claimed responsibility for wreaking havoc on Sony, posted a message online mocking the FBI’s investigation – a series of gyrating animated bodies shrieking, “You are an idiot!”

IRS seizes woman’s entire bank account because she deposited money ‘suspiciously’

A woman’s entire bank account was seized by the Internal Revenue Service — without so much as a criminal charge — because the agency claimed she deposited money “suspiciously.”

This is the plight of Carole Hinders, who has been running a Mexican restaurant for the last four decades. Accepting cash only from customers at the restaurant, she makes frequent cash deposits to her checking account.

As part of the federal government’s dragnet surveillance of the civilian population, everyone’s banking activities are monitored for “red flag” activities. One of these is frequent cash deposits totaling less than $10,000. Using this vague criteria, Ms. Hinders was thought to fit the profile of a financial criminal.

A motorist was viciously beaten, tasered, and maced repeatedly, then charged with 24 separate crimes and maliciously prosecuted for every one of them. He was beaten four (4) times over the course of 11-hours, and not once had he acted maliciously. The incident stemmed from his driving while on an unusually high dosage of legally-prescribed bipolar medication and a subsequent fender bender. Dash-cam footage revealed the extraordinary exaggerations made about the case — 2 years after it took place.

Blackwater Lobbyist Will Manage House Intelligence Committee

After lobbyist-run SuperPACs and big money efforts dominated the last election, legislators are now appointing lobbyists to literally manage the day-to-day affairs of Congress. For the House Intelligence Committee, which oversees government intelligence operations and agencies, the changing of the guard means a lobbyist for Academi, the defense contractor formerly known as Blackwater, is now in charge.

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), the incoming chairman of the Intelligence Committee when the House reconvenes in January, announced that Jeff Shockey will be the new Staff Director of the committee. As a paid representative of Academi, Shockey and his firm have earned $80,000 this year peddling influence on behalf of Academi.

Nancy Genovese, 58, said she was taking photos for a "Support Our Troops" website when she was detained and arrested by Suffolk County authorities, Britain's The Guardian newspaper reported.

"What they took from this woman cannot be measured in money," prominent Long Island civil rights attorney Frederick Brewington told media, following a decision by a federal jury. "There is no reason to treat another human the way they treated her."

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

The net result of the CIA-inspired fracking operations, which the Saudis were warned not to pursue by petroleum engineers working for some foreign-based firms like Schlumberger, is that there will be an oil supply glut for the next 5 years. The glut will be followed by a reduction in Saudi oil production unless new oil fields are brought on line. There is now a major push by U.S. and Canadian oil companies to bring online the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States to offset the expected sharp rise in oil prices in four to five years. But with Canada suffering financially from the drop in oil revenues, the Keystone XL project is also on financially shaky ground.

While these events are usually extremely secretive, photographs of this particular Ball surfaced on the web. In short, it is a mix of an “Eyes Wide Shut”-style masked ball mixed with a Lady Gaga-style pop video. I’m not even kidding. Indeed, behind the fun and games, these pics reveal the underlying ideology and the mind state of the occult elite – which is apparently also used in the countless MK/Illuminati theme music videos discussed on this site.

Hillsborough officer bullied into signing doctored statement, inquest hears

A senior South Yorkshire police officer bullied a constable to sign a doctored statement about the Hillsborough disaster, the new inquest into the deaths of 96 people at the football ground has heard.

PC Michael Walpole told the inquest that he feared his job would be made “a misery” if he did not sign the amended statement, in which several of his original comments had been deleted, because he had seen other officers hounded out of the police in similar circumstances.

Walpole said that at the time he believed it was “out of order” for his statement to have been doctored, and he initially refused to sign it. He was then required to go to South Yorkshire police headquarters at Snig Hill in Sheffield to meet a chief inspector, Alan Foster, with two other constables, Peter Smith and Maxwell Groome, who were also refusing to sign their changed statements.

The State Department said it takes U.S. passports for reasons including issuance of a felony arrest warrant, fraud, failure to pay child support or a criminal court order barring departure from the country.

Randy Quaid said the revocation involved an issue over “an insurance policy that we did not take out,” but declined to discuss it further.

“We can’t go anywhere,” Quaid said.

“Randy can’t take a film job,” said Evgenia Quaid. “He had to turn down the Cannes Film Festival last year. We can’t proceed with our life.”

NYC sued over violence against young inmates at notorious Rikers Island jail

Federal prosecutors sued New York City on Thursday, alleging that the city has not sufficiently moved to reform the city’s notorious Rikers Island jail, where “force is used against adolescents at an alarming rate,” according to the US Justice Department.

In August, the Justice Department released a graphic 79-page report, which found a “deep-seated culture of violence” aimed at young offenders held at Rikers Island. The report, the result of a two-and-a-half-year investigation on conditions at jail facilities between 2011 and 2013, detailed, among other damning findings, the wanton use of solitary confinement imposed on youth.

Shocking new figures reveal Florida to be the child abuse capital of America - as 117 children were killed while being monitored by welfare officers in the state in just five years.

And a sickening map of abuse shows how at least 786 children, most under the age of four, died from violence or neglect from 2008 to 2013 in plain view of child protection authorities.

Many of them were beaten, starved or left alone to drown while agencies had good reason to know they were in danger.

Little do they know that much of the nearly 1.2 quadrillion dollars of dodgy derivatives, the liability for which Citigroup masterfully managed to dump on American taxpayers and depositors recently, are riding on high oil prices, which have tanked and look as though they will remain that way for the foreseeable future. It’s almost certain that oil derivatives are soon to follow.

Is Europe About to Lose the Fight Against GMO’s?

“What emerges is an understanding of TTIP as the political project of a transatlantic corporate and political elite which, on the unfounded promise of increased trade and job creation, will attempt to reverse social and environmental regulatory protections, redirect legal rights from citizens to corporations, and consolidate US and European global leadership in a changing world order.” – (Seattle to Brussels Network, Kim Bizzarri)

NSA Firefoxed: Mozilla team-up with Tor to improve internet privacy

The internet browser Mozilla is teaming up with Tor to give internet users greater security online. The new Polaris project is designed to combat internet censorship and make NSA like intrusion’s a thing of the past.

Edward Snowden’s revelations concerning the extent of the National Security Agency’s spying on the general public, hit computer and internet enthusiasts hard. A poll conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the internet company Mozilla last month, found that three quarters of those surveyed feel that their personal information on the web is less secure than it was one year ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The comment in the article about the NSA not being able to find a TOR users identity is not entirely accurate. Recently it has come to light that if a user has the flash player installed on their computer, malicious code inside a flash object can detect the source IP of the request despite the onion network, which is why the current implementation of TOR recommends users not have the flash player installed. However I think that Mozilla and TOR will close that exploit (if they have not already done so).

As a general rule, everyone ought to be using anonymity tools and strong encryption, even if you do not really have anything to hide, to jam the NSA with added workload and confuse them as to who they should be looking at. For your local data protection or small-group communications, I strongly recommend investing the time to develop your own encryption methods using the code snippets in the NSA Challenge page as examples.

NSA and EFF to square off in court over internet surveillance

A digital rights group in the United States plans to argue in federal court this week that the National Security Agency’s internet surveillance operations violate the US Constitution’s ban against unlawful searches and seizures.

Six years after the Electronic Frontier Foundation brought suit against the NSA on behalf of a former AT&T customer, Carolyn Jewel, US District Court Judge Jeffrey White for the Northern District of California will hear an EFF attorney argue on Friday for summary judgment and attest that the intelligence agency’s data collection methods breach the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment clauses intended to protect private information.

Like Canada’s Harper Government, Obama Administration Muzzling Its Scientists

In recent years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has come under fire for disallowing scientists working for the Canadian government to speak directly to the press.

An article published in August by The New Republic said “Harper’s antagonism toward climate-change experts in his government may sound familiar to Americans,” pointing to similar deeds done by the George W. Bush Administration. That article also said that “Bush’s replacement,” President Barack Obama, “has reversed course” in this area.

Society for Professional Journalists, the largest trade association for professional journalists in the U.S., disagrees with this conclusion.

HOW YOUR THREAT MATRIX SCORE COULD LAND YOU ON THE TERMINAL “RED LIST”

Did you know that according to Daniel Freeman’s study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry found that paranoid thoughts are common among normally functioning people? In fact, the study concluded that some dose of paranoia is actually quite adaptive and can serve to keep us safe from danger. What is about to be presented in this article should make one paranoid for when one considers why governments in the West, particularly in the United States, spend billions of dollars to spy on our actions, words, Internet browsing habits, places visited and even our thoughts, we should all be looking under our beds.

For-Profit Policing

A bill introduced in the Texas legislature would do just that – giving cops credit card readers, as an adjunct to their radar detectors. Instead of just, license, registration and proof of insurance, please – it’ll be: License, registration, proof of insurance… and Visa or Mastercard, please.

And no, I am not making it up.

The bill is HB 121 and you can read all about it here. It was introduced about a month ago by a – you guessed it – “conservative” Republican. You can always count on “conservative” Republicans to bed down with law enforcement – and rape due process.

Especially if there’s a buck to be made.

US Targeting Hundreds of Millions of Russian Civilians

White House officials are openly expressing happiness with their siege/war tactics that they say are throwing Russia into an economic collapse and are, as a scholar defending the siege notes, “hurting the Russian public’s ability to buy food or heat homes”. This eagerness to starve and freeze children is particularly relevant given the recent publicity of the US’s tactics of starving and freezing innocent detainees as well as people claimed to be “suspects”.

U.S. Declares (Currency) War On Russia

U.S. economic terrorism (i.e. the One Bank’s economic terrorism) has hit a new extreme this week. This crime syndicate has launched what can be termed nothing less than an all-out effort to destroy the economy of Russia.

Its modus operandi is, once again, currency manipulation. What is the quickest/easiest way to destroy an economy? Drive the value of its currency as close to zero as possible. The effect of such a manipulated “devaluation” is a massive explosion in inflation. And the effect of that is to make all Russians much poorer.

The economic destruction caused by this economic terrorism affects Russians, and the Russian economy on a percentage-for-percentage basis. Each percentage lower that the banksters drive the ruble with their criminal manipulation makes Russians, and the Russian economy 1% poorer.

United States of Newspeak – Obama Calls Executive Orders “Presidential Memoranda” to Avoid Scrutiny and Issues Most in History

If there’s one thing we have learned about Barack Obama, it’s that he is a master of deception and absolutely loves to lie to the public. He seems to enjoy conning the plebs to such a degree, I think he actually receives blasts of dopamine every time he does it. The bigger the lie, the better the rush.

Online news sites to be blacked out during next major catastrophic event?

According to what I'm hearing from several sources in my network of contacts, the U.S. government is putting systems in place to black out online news sites like Natural News, Drudge Report, The Blaze and many others. A practice run that took place earlier this week in California has already achieved this result and confirmed the technical ability to make it happen at will.

Treasury Department seeks survival kits to prepare employees at every major bank for coming collapse

The Treasury Department is looking to buy survival kits for all of its employees who are proprietors of the federal banking system, according to a new government solicitation posted online.

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (FB), the emergency goods and supplies are for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller and Currency -- the OCC -- which is in charge of conducting on-site reviews and audits of banks around the nation.

According to the solicitation, each survival kit contains everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets. And the government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, the solicitation says [which can be viewed here in PDF format: FreeBeacon.com].

Killed By Police 2014

Corporate news reports of people killed by nonmilitary law enforcement officers, whether in the line of duty or not, and regardless of reason or method.

Inclusion implies neither wrongdoing nor justification on the part of the person killed or the officer involved. The post merely documents the occurrence of a death.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, national statistics provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation do not report 25 percent or more of police killings in the US.

The newspaper analyzed data from 105 of the largest police agencies in the country and compared the figures to the official statistics of the FBI. More than 550 killings between 2007 and 2012 were not part of the FBI totals.

‘Do You Know Who the F*ck I Am?’ FL Cop Pulls over the Wrong Guy…

A Miami cop pulled someone over last month on a routine traffic stop, but the ensuing mess resulted in an internal investigation because it turns out the man this police officer pulled over was actually a higher-ranking officer in the same police department. Officer Marcel Jackson pulled over Lieutenant David Ramras and things got intense really quickly.

In a video captured on Jackson’s GoPro camera, you can see them fighting and Jackson forcing Ramras to the ground. Other officers nearby run up to break the two of them up. Ramras angrily shouts, “Do you know who the fuck I am?” He then tells Jackson who he is.

At least the cops are beating each other up, rather than innocent citizens, and that has to be an improvement!

Government Prosecutors Fear Liberty and Jury Nullification

I thought you’d be interested to know that the government has asked the judge to limit the defense by not allowing any of Ross’ political or philosophical beliefs to be introduced to the jury as they might influence the jury in his favor. The prosecution goes so far as to say that they fear that exposing the jury to his political thought could invite a jury nullification verdict.

The government obviously doesn’t want this trial to become about internet freedom, the drug war, or liberty. But these crucial issues are on trial along with Ross. This trial is poised to be the most important of 2015 in the fight for freedom. Obviously the government thinks so. They are doing their best to smear Ross and obstruct his defense.

I’m attaching an excerpt (bolds and highlights mine) from the prosecution’s motions illustrating what I’m saying. If you want the original document, just let me know.

This outrage needs to become known, so please spread the word!

Google, a leader in the cloud-computing realm along with Microsoft and Amazon.com, was among the notable technology companies that haven’t weighed in.
