In what is surely the single most insidious case of excellent customer service, a new report from NBC News has revealed the existence of a 24/7 Jihadi Help Desk, meant to spread ISIS’ extremist propaganda via the Internet worldwide. The terror organization, which has already become alarmingly adept in terms of its social media targeting and advertising tactics, is so intent on spreading its message of hate that it has even established this all-hours online service, which is operated by six senior members of the organization. As NBC reports, the “express purpose” of the Jihadi Help Desk is aiding “would-be jihadists use encryption and other secure communications in order to evade detection by law enforcement and intelligence authorities.”
The NSA didn’t know it was already sitting on a “goldmine” of data on one of its targets until one of its analysts discovered it by “sheer luck,” according to an internal newsletter entry leaked by Edward Snowden.
The article, dated March 23, 2011, was written by a signals development analyst in SIDtoday, an NSA in-house newsletter.

The "sharing economy" sure has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? As the saying goes, "sharing is caring."

Trucking Industry group Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) (SmallTransportation.org) has introduced Michael's Law, which would allow truckers to carry firearms nationwide. The law is named after 31-year-old truck driver Michael Boeglin, who was brutally murdered, shot (five times) to death on June 26, 2014. The assailant, who was never caught, then lit Mike's Freightliner truck on fire with him in it. Mike had been waiting outside a shipper at a nearby abandoned gas station because the corporation, like many, forbid drivers to wait for the load on their property. He left behind his wife Ashley who was four months pregnant with their first child. The NRA has shockingly opposed and worked against MICHAEL'S LAW, the straightforward, very simple 136- word proposal. (Gee wonder why?) The NRA has been rightly derided as a sellout organization for years by gun rights advocates.
