FLASHBACK - Sequester Doomsday Predictions: Much Ado about Nothing

Despite endless hand-wringing and apocryphal forecasts of massive federal job losses as a result of the 2013 sequestration, it turns out that — drum roll, please — only one job was eliminated.

The White House and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicted that thousands of jobs would disappear if Congress couldn’t avoid sequester, those automatic budget cuts implemented across all federal agencies when Democrats and Republicans failed to agree on a budget deal.

So much for all that talk, as only the Department of Justice reported the reduction of its workforce, and that by a single employee in fiscal year 2013, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report.

Intelligence expert Schmidt-Eenboom: 'It's a huge scandal'

DW: A 31-year-old employee of Germany's foreign intelligence agency is accused of having spied on behalf of the United States. Is that everyday business for secret services, or is it a huge scandal?

Erich Schmidt-Eenboom: It's a huge scandal. We're already in the situation that Germany's foreign intelligence agency (BND) doesn't regard American agents in Germany as hostile forces - they are allowed a lot in terms of espionage in Germany - but that a BND employee would be sent to spy on a constitutional body is an outrageous transgression of intelligence cooperation and its boundaries.

PRUDEN: An immigrant surge en route to a Third World USA

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight.

Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future.

The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old Soviet Union can be friends, is a reset, sure enough. The new Russia looks more like a reset to the Cold War......

By Patrick Martin
4 July 2014

Israeli warplanes struck the Gaza Strip again on Thursday, hitting at least 15 targets in the blockaded Palestinian territory, causing extensive damage and wounding at least 10 people, including a pregnant woman and a 65-year-old man.

The Israel Defense Forces moved tanks and artillery units towards Gaza, positioning them in advance of any order from the cabinet to invade the densely populated enclave, with nearly two million people crammed into an area of less than 200 square miles. The IDF also called up an undisclosed number of reservists for duty.

UK military’s secret plan to train Syrian rebels to topple Bashar al-Assad

The British military drew up a secret plan two years ago to train a 100,000-strong Syrian rebel force aimed at toppling president Bashar al-Assad. The plan was the brainchild of General Sir David Richards, then chief of staff. The military regularly draws up contingency plans for all kinds of scenarios, but this one was considered more seriously than most and widely circulated – including to Downing Street and senior US military staff. It was shelved as being too risky.

Germany Holds Spy Suspect as U.S. Espionage Reports Swirl

German authorities are pursuing an espionage probe against a man identified by media as a German intelligence officer who may have passed secrets to the U.S.

Federal prosecutors said yesterday that a 31-year-old German was arrested on July 2 on suspicion of spying for an unidentified foreign power. Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, called the case “a serious matter,” declining to elaborate.

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, citing government officials it didn’t identify, reported today that the man in custody is suspected of informing U.S. agents about an inquiry by German lawmakers into the National Security Agency.

MICHAEL RIVERO'S SIXTH NSA CHALLENGE SOLUTION

Here is the clear message.

Here is the image used as the encryption key.

And here is the batch file that encodes and decodes everything.

Nobody got this. The coffee mug is still in the box. I am batting 1000 against the NSA's cryptographers! My first NSA challenge came out over a year ago. Had I been a real terrorist,
I would have had ample time to carry out my nefarious plans.

This proves that the NSA cannot and does not track real criminals and terrorists, but exists to spy on law-abiding Americans citizens on behalf of a
government grown paranoid over public awareness of their crimes and corruption.

Feds Threaten Journalist With Prison Over Report On Illegal Immigration

The Department of Defense has threatened me with imprisonment in response to our report on the illegal alien shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

In a certified letter sent to Infowars, the Defense Department claims that I engaged in “unauthorized photography and broadcast” which were somehow “detrimental” to the “safety and security of the installation” even though the photos of Lackland’s illegal alien shelter, which is housing nearly 2,000 illegals at a cost to taxpayers of around $250 per immigrant per day, were taken outside the shelter and are clearly in the public’s best interest.

“You are hereby put on notice that should you make unauthorized entry into any of the Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) installations in the future, a debarment order will be issued,” stated the letter, which added that further action could lead to imprisonment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell are they trying to hide form us? That there is a flood of illegals entering the country? We already know that. That many of these illegals are carrying highly contagious diseases? We know that too. That the US Government is spending more tax money to make sure these illegals have food and water while the legal citizens of Detroit are going without? We know that too?

So what else are they hiding to the point of threatening reporters with arrest for photos taken outside the facility?

Quiet as its kept, actual independence only arrived on September, 3, 1783 when Great Britain formally abandoned its claims to its colonies and signed the Treaty of Paris.

Outraged at the federal government for failing to secure the border with Mexico and allowing undocumented migrants to pass into the country while US citizens continue suffering from the Great Recession, the protesters decided to act. They successfully prevented the buses from reaching their intended destination, forcing them to turn around and leave.

XKeyscore exposed: How NSA tracks all German Tor users as 'extremists'

The NSA marks and considers potential "extremists" all users of the internet anonymizer service Tor, German media reports. Among those are hundreds of thousands of privacy concerned people like journalists, lawyers and rights activists.

Searching for encryption software like the Linux-based operating system Tails also places you on the NSA grid, says a report by German broadcasters NDR and WDR. The report is based on analysis of the source code of the software used by NSA’s electronic surveillance program XKeyscore.

Tor is a system of servers, which routes user requests through a layer of secured connections to make it impossible to identify a user’s IP from the addresses of the websites he/she visits. The network of some 5,000 is operated by enthusiasts and used by hundreds of thousands of privacy-concerned people worldwide. Some of them live in countries with oppressive regimes, which punish citizens for visiting websites they deem inappropriate.

And at nearly every one of them is some poor guy’s collection of gold eagles and Canadian Maple Leaf coins.

Smith said she has been writing letters to a prison psychosocial review board to revoke his parole eligibility every three years and has always been successful.

The recent decision by an obscure administrative law board to cancel the Washington Redskins‘ trademark registrations came despite the fact the agency hadn’t received a single letter from a member of the public complaining about the team’s name, records show.

The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, which is part of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, ruled last month that the name was disparaging to American Indians. The team is appealing that decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, nobody had ever actually complained, not even the American Indians, and this government goofball desperate to keep his job just took it upon himself to create this whole mess out of thin air?!?

IRS scandal: Lawmakers fiercely demand Holder appoint special prosecutor

After many months of stonewalled investigations, "missing" subpoenaed emails, partisan bickering and uncooperative witnesses, House of Representatives chairmen from two congressional committees officially demanded on Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) targeting of conservative organizations and the subsequent cover-up perpetrated by IRS staff members.

All but four nations are subject to NSA surveillance – new Snowden leak

Previously undisclosed files leaked to the media by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden now show that the United States National Security Agency has been authorized to spy on persons in all but four countries.

One former senior defense official who spoke to the journalists on condition of anonymity said that the broad authority is allowed so that the US government is able to assess any developing situations around the world at the drop of a hat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And on that last statement, OH, REALLY?!?

Then HOW, please could have the NSA's surveillance been that lousy, that it missed the rise of ISIS and ISIL in Iraq and Syria?!?!?

Huge demand for NSA-proof email: ProtonMail uses a month's server capacity in 3 days

ProtonMail promised to ignore law enforcement requests, according to FreedomHacker, "unless they are accompanied by an enforceable Swiss court order. These court orders are extremely difficult to obtain as the case must first work its way through the Swiss legal system which has strong privacy protections. And even then, we do not have access to user encryption keys so any data we do turn over would be encrypted."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I still recommend that people with large amounts of data to protect invest in the time to learn programming and develop their own code systems. Use the code snippets at my NSA Challenge as a guide.

Government Stops Glenn Greenwald from Publishing His Big Snowden Revelation … But Others Will Release ALL of the Snowden Documents to Prevent a War

A month ago, Glenn Greenwald announced that he was going to publish his biggest story yet: the names of those the NSA has been spying on.

Earlier today, Greenwald tweeted that he would finally publish the story tonight at midnight.

8 hours later, he tweeted:

After 3 months working on our story, USG [the United States government] today suddenly began making new last-minute claims which we intend to investigate before publishing

Many responded that it’s a trap, and that the government is dishonestly and illegally censoring Greewald.

At the same time, Cryptome announced that all of the Snowden documents will be released in July … supposedly in order to avert a war.

“July is when war begins unless headed off by Snowden full release of crippling intel. After war begins not a chance of release,” Cryptome tweeted on its official feed. “Warmongerers are on a rampage. So, yes, citizens holding Snowden docs will do the right thing,” it said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The wait on the release of these documents is making me very nervous.

Cornered animals - and governments - are both very dangerous.

And if in fact the US government has a good sense of precisely what is in these documents, what will prevent them from going to war sooner than the July 18th-21st window?!?!?

The short answer, unfortunately, is...not much.

Conviction in "Cannibal Cop" Case Overturned

A federal judge overturned the 2013 conviction of a former NYPD police officer who was accused in a gruesome plot to kidnap women, cook them and dine on their “girl meat,” and he was set to be released Tuesday.

The kidnapping conspiracy conviction against Gilberto Valle was rejected by Manhattan Federal District Court judge Paul G. Gardephe, who said there was not enough evidence to support it, according to the New York Times. Valle faced a sentence of up to life in prison for that conviction.

PayPal freezes out NSA-proof, encrypted ProtonMail

PayPal has restricted payments to and from ProtonMail, a Swiss-based email service offering full end-to-end encryption, “pending further review.” When pressed, PayPal questioned the legality of the anti-snooping service.

ProtonMail announced the payment freeze in a statement Tuesday, saying PayPal had made no attempt to contact them before shutting them out.

“When we pressed the PayPal representative on the phone for further details, he questioned whether ProtonMail is legal and if we have government approval to encrypt emails, the statement read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We don't need government permission to encrypt our emails or data. The Fourth Amendment gives us that right.

The European Union prepares the ‘solidarity clause’ framework for military use against citizens

The use of the “European Gendarmerie Force” (EUROGENDFOR) is made ??possible by the “solidarity clause” as Heise reported. At the unit, headquartered in Vicenza, Italy, all EU Member States are involved, the Gendarmerien, so police forces with military status are used. One of the founding countries of the EUROGENDFOR include Portugal, Spain, Italy, France and the Netherlands. We provide our services to the police unit of the EU, NATO or the UN.

“The ‘solidarity clause’ is redundant, since the EU already has mechanisms for mutual assistance in case of disasters. Secondly, the clause amplifies the course to a militarization of domestic politics, since upon request military can be used in another Member State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If I were a citizen of any EU country where these laws apply, I would be contemplating a very quick migration elsewhere, particularly if I had children and skills.

U.S. Relies On Law from Governments Which Don’t Even HAVE a Constitution to Justify Assassination of U.S. Citizens By Drone

The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says:

No person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law ….

So how did the legal memorandum “justifying” assassination of U.S. citizens by drone try to sidestep the Fifth Amendment?

It relied on reasoning from two countries that don’t have any constitution.

The New York Times reports:

One might have expected a thoughtful memo that carefully weighed the pros and cons and discussed how such a strike accords with international and Constitutional law.

Instead, the memo turns out to be a slapdash pastiche of legal theories — some based on obscure interpretations of British and Israeli law — that was clearly tailored to the desired result. Perhaps the administration held out so long to avoid exposing the thin foundation on which it based such a momentous decision.

Neither England nor Israel have a constitution.

11 Shocking Facts About America's Militarized Police Forces

In June, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) brought more attention to police militarization when it issued a comprehensive, nearly 100-page (appendix and endnotes included) report titled, “War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing.” Based on public records requests to more than 260 law enforcement agencies in 26 states, the ACLU concluded that “American policing has become excessively militarized through the use of weapons and tactics designed for the battlefield” and that this militarization “unfairly impacts people of color and undermines individual liberties, and it has been allowed to happen in the absence of any meaningful public discussion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are very lucky here in Hawaii that we do not have a lot of this kind of behaviour on the part of the police; not that it absolutely doesn't happen, but it is far rarer than for people on the mainland.

But the other aspect of the militarization of the police this article doesn't address is the training of the US police by Israel's IDF, which makes US police view American citizens very much the way the IDF views - and treats - Palestinians.

Watch Out for that Banana Peel

Recently, the EU announced that it is looking into legislation to allow the savings of EU citizens to "be used to fund long-term investments to boost the economy and help plug the gap left by banks since the financial crisis."

Sounds reasonable enough. But why would legislation be needed? It's perfectly legal for people to invest their savings in such ventures now, should they choose to do so.

Let's see what else the EU have to say: They are considering a law "to mobilize more personal pension savings for long-term financing." Mobilise? An odd term to use when discussing privately held savings. It could mean "encourage investment," or it could just as easily mean "confiscate." The former might be okay, but the latter would clearly not.

This man claims Microsoft stole his greatest idea — & Android users are still paying for it 18 years later

“It was like the Wild West,” Morris told me. Amidst all the competition and innovation in the 1990s, lines of ethics and justice were blurred. “I didn’t think they’d actually get a patent on it, because for a patent you need something novel,” Morris said, “and we’d been selling it already for well over a year.”

U.S. Patent 6,101,510 makes absolutely no mention of V_Graph or its browser extension. According to Section 101 of the U.S. Patent Act, an invention is patentable if it is new, useful, and non-obvious. According to Morris, Microsoft’s patent meets only one of those requirements. Since V_Graph had sold the technology a year prior, it’s nothing new. Since the technology itself is simply the combination of a browser and a software component, it’s nothing non-obvious. Yet, since millions of Android users are forking over licensing fees to Microsoft, it’s clearly useful.

The Death of Independence

July 4th has been the national birth date since the inception of the country. Americans want to celebrate past glories because there are few reasons to believe that the current government or society is worthy of rejoicing.

Lost in this commemoration is the concept of true and lasting independence.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! UPDATED!

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am helping Zane collect material for an updated version of the video for "All Wars are Bankers' Wars" and decided to add them to the original article as illustrations.

The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

Obama ignores Boehner’s lawsuit threat: ‘I’ll keep taking actions on my own’

Seemingly unfazed by the threat of a lawsuit, President Obama on Saturday vowed to press on and use executive actions wherever and whenever possible.

In his weekly address, the president didn’t directly address House Speaker John A. Boehner’s announcement earlier this week that he’ll sue Mr. Obama for supposed abuses of executive authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For a guy who claims to have been a professor of Constitutional law, Obama has it flat out wrong. Under the Constitution, the President's job is to carry out the will of the Congress. The Executive Order is merely the formal device by which the President executes the will of the Congress, and Presidential Executive Orders are binding only on the federal Government itself, not the people of the United States. Executive orders created out of the President's own mind are invalid, null, and void.

‘Sneak & peek’ warrants allow police to secretly enter homes without notice

A little-known police tactic allows cops to covertly enter private residences, perform searches, seize property, and then leave quietly without notifying the homeowner. These searches, affectionately known as “sneak and peek” warrants, have been performed at a rapidly rising rate since 9/11.
Covert Tactics

Sneak and Peek warrants in actuality a more extreme version of the over-used “no-knock” raids that we cover so often. After seeking out a judge’s authorization, police are allowed to secretly break into private property without first announcing themselves or presenting the subject of the search with a signed warrant. Using this variety of warrant, officers intentionally wait until the subject is not present. The operations are performed covertly, and with the intention of masking the fact that any police activity took place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever noticed that since 9/11, police departments across the country have backslid to an unofficial Code Napoleon view of American law, in which the suspect is considered guilty until they are proven innocent?!?

This is absolutely the polar opposite of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights are allegedly supposed to afford American citizens!

U.S. Says It Spied on 89,000 Targets Last Year, But the Number Is Deceptive

About 89,000 foreigners or organizations were targeted for spying under a U.S. surveillance order last year, according to a new transparency report. The report was released for the first time Friday by the Office of the Director of Intelligence, upon order of the president, in the wake of surveillance leaks by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

But the report, which covers only surveillance orders issued in 2013, doesn’t tell the whole story about how many individuals the spying targeted or how many Americans were caught in the surveillance that targeted foreigners. Civil liberties groups say the real number is likely “orders of magnitude” larger than this.

“Even if it was an honest definition of ‘target’—that is, an individual instead of a group—that also is not encompassing those who are ancillary to a target and are caught up in the dragnet,” says Kurt Opsahl, deputy general counsel of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me see: who is the US government going to consider "foreign nationals" with whom we are in regular contact?!?

Oh, I know: many of the sisters and one priest at the Catholic church which coordinates with my Methodist church to create a food distribution program, both for state-declared food insecure kids and insecure adults and family, are from India!!

And even though these beautiful souls work tirelessly to create a little better quality of life for those less fortunate, and do their best to do the work followers of Christ believe that they should do, I would not bet against these people surveilled, simply because they ARE from a foreign country.

And here is where the surveillance program, in and of itself, becomes... like a metastasizing cancer, completely out of control.

These people are pacifists, who would never, EVER advocate harm to ANYONE. To be surveilling them would be an amazingly stupid waste of taxpayer money, and personnel.

But again, given the paranoia of the current government, I wouldn't put odds against them being surveilled.

Fisa court grants extension of licence for bulk collection of US phone records

US intelligence agencies have made a fifth attempt to extend their bulk collection of American telephone records – more than a year after the controversial practice was first revealed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Despite repeated calls from Congress and President Obama for the mass gathering of private US phone records to be banned, a court has approved the request in secret, allowing the NSA to continue collecting metadata until 12 September 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"FISA" stands for "Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act", emphasis on the word "Foreign." The FISA court does not actually have legal authority to authorize spying on American citizens inside the United States because such warrantless spying violates the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Any claims that FISA can authorize spying on Americans inside the United States is a pure bluff to trick people into thinking that this is all somehow legal, when clearly it is not.

The United States of Cruelty

My husband's nephew, the one they were looking for, wasn't there. He doesn't even live in that house. After breaking down the door, throwing my husband to the ground, and screaming at my children, the officers - armed with M16s - filed through the house like they were playing war. They searched for drugs and never found any. I heard my baby wailing and asked one of the officers to let me hold him. He screamed at me to sit down and shut up and blocked my view, so I couldn't see my son. I could see a singed crib. And I could see a pool of blood. The officers yelled at me to calm down and told me my son was fine, that he'd just lost a tooth.

This didn't happen in Mosul. This didn't happen in Jalalabad. It happened in Atlanta. Keep this in mind.

House passes bill to weaken Dodd-Frank and help Wall Street, Koch brothers

The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to water down key parts of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, weakening the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s power to regulate derivatives. The resulting bill helps big banks and the Koch brothers.

The bill reauthorizes the CFTC’s mandate, which expired in October 2013, for five years. It would also reverse the commission’s tough rules on U.S. businesses' swaps with counter-parties abroad, requiring it to draw up a new regime together with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Critics contend that the loosening of regulations could weaken market stability, Reuters reported.

“The purpose of this bill is to remove barriers to business growth that have been imposed by over-reaching and burdensome regulations,” Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) said, according to HedgeCo.net.

IRS’s Lerner sought tax audit of Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley over his wife’s free meal

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, tried to get her agency to conduct an audit involving a sitting U.S. senator, according to emails released Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee.

Ms. Lerner suggested that the IRS look into whether it was wrong for a group to pay for Sen. Chuck Grassley’s wife to attend an event where he was slated to speak. Her suggestion was shot down by another IRS employee who said the arrangement appeared to be legal.

But the email chain, which was turned over to Congress as part of its investigation, raises more questions about Ms. Lerner.

“At every turn, Lerner was using the IRS as a tool for political purposes in defiance of taxpayer rights,” said Rep. Dave Camp, Michigan Republican and chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

Cancel Detroit’s debt!

While tens of thousands of retired workers in Detroit spent an anxious Christmas worrying about the fate of their hard-earned pensions, they were greeted with the news that a deal had been reached to pay Bank of America-Merrill Lynch and Swiss bank UBS $165 million. If approved, as expected, by the bankruptcy court, Detroit will pay the money to the banks to “unwind” a complex financial scheme that has already drained hundreds of millions of dollars from the city.

The US bankruptcy judge and the news media have presented the deal as an example of “equal sacrifice” because the original agreement signed by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr would have given the banks $230 million. The truth is, not a penny should be paid to the Wall Street speculators whose semi-legal, if not outright criminal, activities are largely responsible for the crisis of the city.

Why the USA and England Had to Start World War Two
Why? Basically because their gangster overlords, the sleazy criminals that slither around the banks in Wall Street and the City of London financial district told them to get the war on.

The banksters were deathly afraid that Hitler's resuscitation of Germany's economy, which had been on life support and falling fast, but got turned around in a matter of years into what got called an economic miracle would start spreading to other nations, many of whom were being destroyed from within by the perverted banksters choke-hold on those nations.

They knew that if Hitler's plan started catching on elsewhere, their centuries old con of debt based currency would no longer be needed or used and that would put the fiat banks out of business, not only seriously impacting their very lucrative incomes, but worse, strip away all their power.

That could not be allowed to happen.

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that police cannot go snooping through people’s cell phones without a warrant, in a unanimous decision that amounts to a major statement in favor of privacy rights.

Police agencies had argued that searching through the data on cell phones was no different than asking someone to turn out his pockets, but the justices rejected that, saying a cell phone is more fundamental.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not going to stop the police from going through your cell phone with devices like Stingray. It merely means that evidence collected in this manner is inadmissible in court, although the police can and likely will use it to find something that is admissible.

Feds Threatening ‘Third Wounded Knee’ with Eminent Domain Land Grab on Sioux Indian Reservation

The Oglala Sioux and Lakota Sioux of the reservation have been told by the Federal Government that the National Parks Service will be taking land that comprises the South Unit of the Badlands National Park as a new ‘Tribal National Park’, only the wording in the bill clearly indicates that it will be a federally managed national park under the Department of Interior, giving mere lip service to its tribal title. The Congressional bill has already been written, and if passed through Congress, both tribal members and non tribal members will be stripped of their deeded land – at a price set by the federal government. If owners do not accept Washington’s offer (expected to be a meager one), the land can be acquired at no cost because the measure has waives all appraisal rights and stipulates that Washington can simply take Indian land by force under ‘eminent domain’.

John Boehner Is Getting Ready To Mount A Potentially Gigantic Lawsuit Against Obama

House Speaker John Boehner could file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama in days, in an attempt to challenge the administration's heavy use of executive actions to further its agenda.

Roll Call's Daniel Newhause reports Boehner told House Republicans during a closed-door meeting on Tuesday he could have an announcement in the coming days on whether he will mount the legal challenge. According to the report, he has been "consulting with legal scholars" ahead of his next move.

Boehner's office confirmed the Roll Call story, but declined to comment on whether specific executive actions would be targeted. Any legal action by Boehner would be a significant and somewhat unprecedented challenge to executive power.

Recent Crimes Of The FBI: Who Is Watching The Watchers?

If you've watched the never ending stream of cable news in recent weeks, you may have noticed the barrage of reports mentioning domestic terror or extremism. Recent shootings in schools and public spaces once again has the pundits talking about the horrors of violence while frantically searching for solutions. The Southern Poverty Law Center, Democracy Now!, Raw Story and other outlets seem to believe the problem is a resurgence of the so-called Patriot Movement. But while this narrative may play out well on television, it's not necessarily a reflection of reality.

Riot Control’ Drone Armed With Guns And Lasers

Meet the Skunk, a heavy-duty, semi-autonomous octocopter drone that can unleash pepper spray, plastic bullets, paintballs, strobe lights and “blinding” lasers, as well as a cacophony of audio in its mission to persuade unruly mobs to disperse. Unveiled at the Ifsec International trade show in London this week, the Skunk is now for sale — and its manufacturer says the orders have begun to roll in.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The money-junkies don't even whip the slaves any more. They have robots to do it for them!

Sacramento Sheriff Confronted Over Stingray Surveillance

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones became visibly irate this week after being questioned over his department’s secret use of the cell-phone tracking technology known as Stingray.

According to reports from ABC News 10, the department obtained the Stingray, a small device that collects countless cell users data by mimicking a cell tower, several years ago without informing the public, local judges or prosecutors.

Scott, who has reportedly failed to provide any substantial information to media and civil liberties groups, became outraged as one reporter began questioning his department’s lack of transparency.

“Are you proud of disrupting an academy graduation?” Scott says before storming off camera. “We’ve dealt with your incessant badgering of our department over these issues.”

Climate change policy could boost global GDP $2.6tn – World Bank

Astute climate policies have the potential to add $2.6 trillion to global output each year, if governments continue making ‘climate-smart’ decisions, according to a new World Bank report released on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What they are saying here is that by forcing people to spend money on things they do not really want or even need, like carbon credits, the economy will be "stimulated", which means more money will be squeezed out of the pockets of ordinary citizens and into the pockets of the money-junkies. This is why we still hear about human-caused global warming despite several record-setting winters in a row and the fact that all of the scare-mongering predictions made by the carbonazis (Al Gore predicted the arctic would be ice-free this summer as one example) have never materialized.

Woman Says DHS Forced Her to Strip Naked at Gunpoint During Terrifying Dawn Raid

According to Edwards’ boyfriend, one of the agents then proceeded to ogle his naked girlfriend up and down like a piece of candy.

“They spent about 2 hours trashing my house, even smashing clear glass shower doors and a vintage statue,” writes Edwards on her YouTube channel. “My boyfriend, who is asthmatic, started having trouble breathing due to the lingering smoke created by the flash bang grenade.”

After trashing her home for two hours, Edwards said the SWAT team eventually handed her a warrant signed by Jonathan Goodman, a federal magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, which authorized the agents to search for computers and electronics, although Edwards claims police seemed uninterested in the couple’s electronics and did not seize any items despite raising the suspicion of child pornography.

Gov’t Seizes Control of All Your Financial Accounts

Everyone knows that the United States has gone bankrupt. As the U.S. government and the Fed poured trillions of dollars of YOUR money into the banks and markets after the 2008 economic collapse, this unprecedented level of money-printing is catapulting the U.S. debt to $28 trillion by 2018. But now, the U.S. government and the Fed are completely out of ammo. They desperately need money to maintain their own power, and taxes are no longer enough. So in order to keep the Ponzi scheme going, the U.S. government has made several highly controversial moves to be in position to seize control of all your financial accounts. And it’s becoming clearer by the day, if you want to protect your savings and wealth from government confiscation, you only have ONE choice.

U.S. Archivist David Ferriero: the IRS “did not follow the law”

Rep. Trey Gowdy hammered IRS Commissioner John Koskinen when he said that he found the IRS of no wrong doing. Gowdy pressed Koskinen on how he knows there was no criminal wrongdoing when he hasn’t looked at criminal statutes.

Gowdy blasted Koskinen and shouted, “You don’t have any idea of criminal wrongdoing or not!”

Gowdy, a former persecutor, told Koskinen that there is a “negative inference” because of the inability of the IRS to retrieve the Lerner emails that the IRS claim were destroyed.

It turns out though the IRS did break the law according to U.S. Archivist David Ferriero.

According to FreeBeacon.com, U.S. Archivist David Ferriero of the National Archives and Records Administration told Rep. Tim Walberg (R., Mich.) that the IRS “did not follow the law” when they failed to notify his administration that they had lost Lois Lerner’s email records.

City attorney: Detroiters should 'stand up and say no' to EM process

“This process is so tremendously flawed,” Smith said. “It goes against everything we’ve been taught about having a voice. It goes against everything I fight for.”

“...the people are represented by the mayor and the City Council. For one person to make a law that changes something that has been in effect...it’s something that affects the lives of so many in so many ways,” he added. “To simply say this is the way it’s going to be is wrong. It’s just a gun pointed at our heads. I’m hoping the people of the city of Detroit will stand up and say no, no more of this.”

Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, introduced legislation on Monday that would prohibit non-law enforcement agencies in the federal government from buying high-power firearms or weaponry as part of a response to the April standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and rancher Cliven Bundy.

Stewart says there’s no reason for regulatory agencies to have paramilitary units like the ones present when the BLM, under a court order, attempted to round up cattle on federal lands. The BLM eventually gave up after facing an armed response by Bundy supporters.

So That’s Why They Kept the Drone Kill Memo Secret

In the end, the memo admits that calling something a war isn’t good enough; the targeted victim has to have been an imminent threat to the United States. But who gets to decide whether he or she was that? Why, whoever does the killing of course. And what happens if nobody ever even makes an unsupported assertion to that effect? Nothing, of course.

This is not the rule of law. This is savage brute force in minimal disguise. I don’t want to see any more of these memos. I want to see the video footage of the drone murders on a television. I want to see law professors and revolving-door State Department / human rights group hacks argue that dead children fall under the public authority justification.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These extrajudicial assassinations are both illegal, and immoral; it is interesting to consider that this method of murder is one of President Obama's absolute favorite way of doing away with someone who, in the President's view, desperately need to be "neutralized"

US police departments are increasingly militarised, finds report

Suddenly there was a loud bang and several strangers dressed in black burst into the room. A blinding flash burst out with a deafening roar from the direction of the cot. Amid the confusion, Phonesavanh could see her husband pinned down and handcuffed under one of the men in black, and while her son was being held by another. Everyone was yelling, screaming, crying. “I kept asking the officers to let me have my baby, but they said shut up and sit down,” she said.

As the pandemonium died down, it became clear that the strangers in black were a Swat team of police officers from the local Habersham County force – they had raided the house on the incorrect assumption that occupants were involved in drugs. It also became clear to Phonesavanh that something had happened to Bou Bou and that the officers had taken him away.

THE SONASOFT SAGA - THE IRS HAS A CONTRACT WITH A COMPANY THAT BACKS UP ALL OF THEIR EMAILS!

John Koskinen's testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee basically came down to "The Dog Ate My Emails", infuriating when you consider that the IRS demands all Americans keep all financial records for up to 7 years for possible review by the IRS, while the IRS was free to dispose of embarrassing and criminal evidence at their discretion. Worse, apparently emboldened by Attorney General Eric Holser's steadfast refusal to allow the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into the IRS' actions (possibly to to the DOJ's own complicity in siccing the FBI on Obama's enemies), Koskinin refused to even apologize for the lost emails, barely able to keep the smirk off of his face!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is going viral across the net today. By tomorrow the corporate media will have to cover it. That means Issa and Ryan will have no choice but to call the IRS on their obvious lie that there are no backups for the missing emails. Please share with all of your social media.

IRS CANCELLED Contract with Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lerner’s Computer Crash

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP.

If the IRS canceled the contact AFTER the Lois Lerner's email was lost, why didn't the IRS request those emails be restored BEFORE they ended the contract?

And given that they had lost emails prior to ending the Contract with Sonasoft, who did the IRS shift the contract to maintain compliance with email archiving laws to? Did the IRS just decide to stop complying with those laws and "hope for the best" with their demonstrably faulty email system?

US Funds "Terror Studies" to Dissect and Neutralize Social Movements

Since the meltdown of 2008, U.S. universities have collaborated with the Pentagon to study dynamics of social movements, worldwide. The goal of “terrorism studies” is “to find possible vectors of resistance, which are to be identified and eradicated, like a disease.” The Minerva Initiative, like NSA spying, sees the entire planet as “enemy territory.”

The U.S. Department of Defense is immersed in studies about...people like you. The Pentagon wants to know why folks who don’t themselves engage in violence to overthrow the prevailing order become, what the military calls, “supporters of political violence.” And by that they mean, everyone who opposes U.S military policy in the world, or the repressive policies of U.S. allies and proxies, or who opposes the racially repressive U.S. criminal justice system, or who wants to push the One Percent off their economic and political pedestals so they can’t lord it over the rest of us. (I’m sure you recognize yourself somewhere in that list.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist who never advocates violence, abhors the use of war as a means to settle geopolitical disputes, but does advocate logic, reason, and compassion in both this country's domestic and foreign policies, how in heaven's name could I possibly be characterized as a threat?!?

Am I "dissatisfied" with the status quo in this country? You can bet on that. But would I ever indulge in violence to change it?

The short answer is, never.

But the late President Kennedy said it best: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable".

IF the Minerva Research Initiative wants to do something constructive, it has to figure out how money is available to all strata of society, and not just to the money junkies.

Or maybe a gift card? Even something left in a safe deposit box?

The Nevada state treasurer will be publishing its yearly unclaimed property list in several of Nevada’s newspapers at the end of the month. The Las Vegas Review-Journal is scheduled to publish the list Tuesday.

The unclaimed property varies and can range from uncashed payroll checks and gift cards to assets left in safe deposit boxes at banks or hotels.

The list has 312,555 properties that have been turned over to the state between July 2013 and May. There are more than $650 million in assets.

Lost Emails? The IRS Has a Contract with an Email Backup Company

As IRS commissioner John Koskinen sat on Capitol Hill belatedly informing a Congressional committee of the "disappearance" of years of email communications from a host of IRS employees under investigation--including Lois Lerner--it was discovered that the IRS had hired an email backup company to prevent just such a loss of data.

The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for "automatic data processing services." Sonasoft's motto is "email archiving done right," and the company lists the IRS as a customer.

In 2009, Sonasoft even sent out a Tweet advertising its work for the IRS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

SHARE THIS EVERYWHERE!

UPDATE: I think I have found out why our representatives in DC are so clueless. I tried using the contact page at Darrel Issa's website but was blocked because I am in his district. I then tried faxing a hard copy of this article to his DC office using the FAX number from his website ... four times! All four failed, the first because his FAX doesn't support color and the final three with a communications error. If any of Rivero's Rangers has a contact on Issa's committee, get this article to them now!

UPDATE 2: I tried FAXing to Darrell Issa's district office. That connection also failed.

UPDATE 3: I tried using the web form over at the Committee On Oversight & Government Reform to send them the info on Sonasoft. That too will not function, simply responding with "An error occurred" when clicking the submit button.

This cannot just be coincidence.

UPDATE 4: The above link now shows a "404 page not found" error! But there is another copy of the article saved HERE! MAKE A LOCAL COPY BEFORE IT GETS ORWELLED!

UPDATE 5: I went to an office supply store and FAXed the original article to Darrell Issa's Washington DC and district offices. Unlike my home, (where the FAX machine is only three months old) the FAXes from the office store went through without any problems at all. Here are the reports.


Issa's District office

Issa's DC office
So, Issa's office now has the information. Included hard copy of the original article, which is fortunate given that the original has been yanked from the website without explanation.

U0PDATE 6: The clients page at Sonasoft still lists the IRS as a customer, about half way down the page!

UPDATE 7: The original article at reason.com has now been restored!

Sonasoft Software Licenses and Software Maintenance Support

Synopsis:
Added: Sep 12, 2008 1:01 pm
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to award a sole source purchase order to Sonasoft Corporation, for the purchase of the software licenses related to Exchange Disaster Recovery capabilities. These items and services have been determined to meet the definition of commercial items in accordance with Part 2.101 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

The IRS has a need for the following items:

CLIN 0001 – Sonasafe Application, Item Number SC, Quantity 4

CLIN 0002 – Exchange Standby License, Item Number SC-B, Quantity 4

CLIN 0003 – Exchange Agent, Item Number SE, Quantity 8

CLIN 0004 – Exchange Standby Agent, Item Number SE-S, Quantity 8

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This page at fbo.gov shows the renewal of services and licenses from Sonasoft for the IRS. Note that some of the products interface with Microsoft Exchange Server. This means that Lois Lerner's (and the other six IRS officials) emails did not reside solely on her local hard drive, but were archived by the built-in system of exchange as well as the added products from Sonasoft.

The IRS Had a Contract With an Email Backup Company - Another online copy.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said it can't provide emails sent between 2009 and 2011 that were requested by congressional investigators because of hard drive crashes.

The agency said that emails stored on dead drives were lost forever because its email backup tapes were recycled every six months, and employees were responsible for keeping their own long-term archives.

The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for "automatic data processing services." Sonasoft's motto is "email archiving done right," and the company lists the IRS as a customer.

Keeping a Lid on "it"

Crooks don't lack guts they lack morals. This brings us to the definition of morals.

I think my morals are good morals. They are most aptly defined in the U.S. Bill of Rights backed up by the Declaration of Independence.

Only fools and the Jews of World War Two era give up their guns and get sent to camps by people with the guts to (unjustly) use their own guns to subdue the cowed and cowardly masses.

How did the masses get so cowardly?

They were and are presently being taught to be cowards by the mainstream media and forces that dictate the effluence of "our" government.

The fact is that "our" governments job is to protect the rights of EVERY CITIZEN REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING. The definition of "RIGHTS" is spelled out in the Bill of Rights.

Simple.

My enemies are simply those who choose to be enemies of the Bill of Rights.
