Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald & David Miranda Call for Global Privacy Treaty (Video)

--There was one case where the mass surveillance of everyone’s phone records in the United States of America showed that there was a single cab driver in California wiring money back to his clan in Somalia that did have some ties to terrorism, but even in that case, the government said they could have achieved—and they would have achieved—the same evidentiary gain through traditional targeted means of investigation. They said they were already closing in on this individual.

And so, this raises the question: Why are programs being billed as public safety programs when they have no corresponding public safety benefit? And the unfortunate reality is that while these programs do have value—you know, the government is not doing this for absolutely no reason—the value that they have is based on intelligence collection. It’s based on adversarial competition between states that’s happening secretly. It’s happening without any form of robust oversight. It’s happening without the involvement of real open courts with an adversarial process.

And increasingly, we’re seeing that even if these programs are instituted with the best of intentions—to keep citizens safe, to assist in war zone operations, in the intervention of terrorism in certain spaces around the United States and throughout the world—inevitably they come back to impact us here at home. The same programs that the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency collaborated on in areas like Yemen are now being used by the United States Marshals Service in the United States against common criminals, people who do not represent any real threat to public safety in a manner that would justify in any way the intrusion into and the violation of millions and millions of citizens’ rights—and noncitizens.

Propaganda War Begins: Russia Hits US-Backed "Moderate" Rebel Targets
Source: Submitted: 10/01/2015
--The bottom line going forward is that the US and its regional and European allies are going to have to decide whether they want to be on the right side of history here or not, and as we've been careful to explain, no one is arguing that Bashar al-Assad is the most benevolent leader in the history of statecraft but it has now gotten to the point where Western media outlets are describing al-Qaeda as "moderate" in a last ditch effort to explain away Washington's unwillingness to join Russia in stabilizing Syria. This is a foreign policy mistake of epic proportions on the part of the US and the sooner the West concedes that and moves to correct it by admitting that none of the groups the CIA, the Pentagon, and Washington's Mid-East allies have trained and supported represent a viable alternative to the Assad regime, the sooner Syria will cease to be the chessboard du jour for a global proxy war that's left hundreds of thousands of innocent people dead.  Read full article »

The CIA’s Torture Defenders

“ one could really claim to be following a moral path if they were complicit in the death of hundreds or thousands more Americans through failure to get information that these detainees had” --John McLaughlin, career Agency analyst.  Read full article »
You mean those goat herders who were sold to the US government by Afghan drug lords for $5,000 a piece? All those "terrorist suspects" that were rounded up but never convicted of any crime whatsoever? The ones that were held (some still held), abused, tortured, raped, even killed without any recourse; no opportunity to challenge their accusers, no opportunity to challenge the "evidence" against them?

Following McLaughlin's logic, it would be immoral NOT to rape a "suspects" child and then light it on fire if the government believed that the rape and subsequent immolation might yield useful information.

Meanwhile, this same morally-bankrupt mindset has led our "policy makers" to FUND the very terrorists that they claim to be "protecting us" from. It's all a sick joke, and yet the common man is so easily terrified, he'll happily accept any crime or criminal that offers the dishonest promise of “safety." I hope those “common men” will start considering the simple arguments presented here:

50 Defense Dept. Whistleblowers Slam "Stalinist" Pentagon Officials For Lying About ISIS
Source: Submitted: 09/13/2015
The Pentagon has erupted in “revolt” amid claims from 50 intelligence analysts that senior defense officials manipulated intelligence reports to downplay the severity of the Islamic State’s increasing upper-hand in the Middle East. According to allegations made in an official complaint with the Department of Defense Inspector General, the officers in question doctored reports — among other things — in order to maintain the Pentagon and president’s narrative that the war against the Islamic State, as well as Al Qaeda in Syria, is succeeding. To the contrary, the dissenting analysts — now effectively whistleblowers — have repeatedly attempted to warn that the situation is far more dismal than what authorities are revealing to the public.  Read full article »
Intentional or not, the article above misdirects its readers.

The government isn't exaggerating its "success" against ISIS because it wants to look good. It's exaggerating its success as to limit the amount of firepower directed against ISIS.

Recent government documents show that our "policy makers" knew damn well that their actions would lead to the creation of ISIS and the mess in Iraq. They pursued this seemingly "crazy" policy because they determined it would ultimately serve their interests.

In short: ISIS, like Al Qaeda before them, is now an asset; meant to generate just enough "fear" to justify foreign and domestic objectives, but not so much fear that the asset is (through military action) prematurely destroyed.

Public Service Announcement:
The US dollar could be in for a VERY bumpy ride over the next 6 - 12 months and this can HURT you and your family. (Think 2008 collapse on steroids.)

There is a very simple way to protect yourself against this risk: Don't keep all of your "money" in the form of US dollars. Instead, turn some of those dollars into "hard money" (gold or silver bullion). You can easily buy Silver Eagles, silver rounds, Gold Eagles (and other bullion) on Ebay. However, if you're willing to go through the trouble of finding a reputable dealer, you will save some on the price.

To better understand WHY the dollar is headed for trouble, simply read chapters 6 - 8 of the book linked below (for free.)
GMOs, Herbicides, and Public Health

In our view, the science and the risk assessment supporting the Enlist Duo decision are flawed. The science consisted solely of toxicologic studies commissioned by the herbicide manufacturers in the 1980s and 1990s and never published, not an uncommon practice in U.S. pesticide regulation. These studies predated current knowledge of low-dose, endocrine-mediated, and epigenetic effects and were not designed to detect them. The risk assessment gave little consideration to potential health effects in infants and children, thus contravening federal pesticide law. It failed to consider ecologic impact, such as effects on the monarch butterfly and other pollinators. It considered only pure glyphosate, despite studies showing that formulated glyphosate that contains surfactants and adjuvants is more toxic than the pure compound.

The second new development is the determination by the IARC in 2015 that glyphosate is a “probable human carcinogen”1 and 2,4-D a “possible human carcinogen.”2 These classifications were based on comprehensive assessments of the toxicologic and epidemiologic literature that linked both herbicides to dose-related increases in malignant tumors at multiple anatomical sites in animals and linked glyphosate to an increased incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in humans.

7 Childhood Activities that Can Make You Healthier and Happier
Source: Submitted: 08/19/2015
As adults we adopt so many “filters” that in various ways sift or dilute or distort our experience of ourselves – let alone our apprehension of the people and events around us. We put down enjoyments to make room for additional responsibilities. We deny ourselves even basic needs (like sleep) in the name of abstract obligations or societal values. Over time, we buy into this skewed definition of what constitutes the “real world” – and end up diminishing our real well-being as a result. Maybe adulthood – and health – don’t need to be so straight-laced and confining as we too often characterize them.

I recently linked to a couple of articles on this general subject that caught my eye – research that linked typical childhood activities (for adults) with health benefits. (Just when our parents thought we were wasting time or getting into trouble…) As we head into the final weeks of summer, I thought it was a good opportunity to talk about how acting like we did all those years (or decades ago) can take our Primal living and inclusive health to a new level.

Your chance to read a secret Pentagon document

You're about to read excerpts from a formerly secret Pentagon document. This document is an analysis created by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). It dates from August 12, 2012, long before ISIS became a major news story. The document was obtained in a Freedom of Information Request by Judicial Watch, a conservative organization. Judicial Watch has used this document to criticize Hillary Clinton's handling of the Benghazi embassy controversy. But it's real value lies elsewhere.

This document shows that the U.S. and its allies have supported Al-Qaeda associated elements in Syria, even though they knew this would lead to the rise of ISIS and the creation of an Islamic State in Syria.

I would add that US aid to "ISIS" also keeps the "war on terror" meme rolling along. It "justifies" the illegal / unconstitutional expansion of government power at home, while maintaining the pretext for continued intervention in the Persian Gulf. This quote from PNAC in 2000 (taken from "Rebuilding America's Defenses") provides further insight:

"In the Persian Gulf region, the presence of American forces, along with British and French units, has become a semipermanent fact of life.

Though the immediate mission of those forces is to enforce the no-fly zones over northern and southern Iraq, they represent the long-term commitment of the United States and its major allies to a region of vital importance. Indeed, the United States has for decades sought to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security.

While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."

[They] publish blogs, start Facebook and Twitter accounts, publish ads and letters to the editor, or simply post comments online to try to fool you into thinking an independent or "grass roots" movement is speaking. The whole point of astroturf is to try to give the impression there's widespread support, for or against an agenda, when there's not. Astroturf seeks to manipulate you into changing your opinion by making you feel as if you're an outlier...Astroturfers seek to controversialize those who disagree with them.

Startups Vie to Build an Uber for Health Care

Darren Gold had a stomach virus the first time he used an app called Heal to summon a doctor to his Beverly Hills home. He liked the Stanford-trained doctor who showed up so much that he called Heal again when his 2-year-old son had a fever, and again when the whole family had colds.

The charges—$99 each for the first two visits; $200 for the family—weren’t covered by insurance, but Mr. Gold, who owns a corrugated-box company, says that was still a bargain compared with taking time off work to go to the doctor. “Now, whenever my son bumps himself, he says, ‘Daddy, we need to get the doctor here,’ ” Mr. Gold says.

Heal is one of several startups putting a high-tech spin on old-fashioned house calls—or “in-person visits,” since they can take place anywhere. The services provide a range of nonemergency medical care—from giving flu shots to treating strep throats and stitching lacerations—much like a mobile urgent-care clinic.

12 Dictators, Tyrants And Terrorist Groups Aided By The US Federal Government
Source: Submitted: 07/22/2015
Throughout the history of United States Foreign policy the U.S. Government has often justified or called for the invasion of another country by claiming the need to remove a dictator who was committing human rights abuses against his own people.

But what is not commonly known is that throughout that same history the U.S. Government also gave military and financial support to numerous tyrants and terrorists with the full knowledge and awareness that these groups were committing human rights abuses against their own people.

This is something the mainstream media in America will never talk about.

And while the media and the U.S. Governent tells us that “terrorists hate us for our freedoms”, perhaps it’s much closer to the truth to say they hate us for propping up dictators around the world, who kill, torture, steal from and unjustly imprison their citizens.

"Again, as Quigley points out, the “power structure” that he exposed isn’t loyal to Communism, or Socialism, or Fascism, or capitalism. The Network is happy to exploit the rhetoric of any movement or ideology, prop up any dictator or tyrant, and support any economic or political model, provided it serves their one overarching aim. That aim, to bring “all the habitable portions of the world under their control,” is as old as the lust for power itself. The death and suffering that their policies have already caused in pursuit of this aim are incalculable. Allowing them to continue as they have will only bring more of the same.

--If there is one goal for this book, it is to expose the attitude and inherent nature of those who seek to dominate others. Don’t worry about remembering all of the dates and names that have been listed. Don’t worry about trying to recall all of the specific events. (All of that information will always be here if you need to find it again.) Instead, make it a point to simply verify the following: there is no lie that these men will not tell. There is no crime that they will not commit. The only measure of “right” and “wrong,” in their view, is whether their tactics succeed or fail. This might sound like hyperbole now, but by the end of this short book you will understand the truth of this assertion. (The Network’s game is won by those who calculate properly, and moral considerations only impede accurate calculation.)" ---Tragedy and Hope 101

For those of you who remember the "death" (murder?) of Michael Hastings, the WIRED video above adds some real context. Here is a paragraph of "background" from Wikipedia:

Former U.S. National Coordinator for Security and Counter-terrorism Richard A. Clarke said that what is known about the crash is "consistent with a car cyber attack". He was quoted as saying "There is reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major powers—including the United States—know how to remotely seize control of a car. So if there were a cyber attack on [Hastings'] car—and I'm not saying there was, I think whoever did it would probably get away with it."

Texas Launches Gold-backed Bank, Challenging Federal Reserve
Source: Submitted: 07/19/2015
--“Today I signed HB 483 to provide a secure facility for the State of Texas, state agencies and Texas citizens to store gold bullion and other precious metals,” said a statement issued by Governor Abbott, a popular conservative governor, after the ceremonial signing. “With the passage of this bill, the Texas Bullion Depository will become the first state-level facility of its kind in the nation, increasing the security and stability of our gold reserves and keeping taxpayer funds from leaving Texas to pay for fees to store gold in facilities outside our state.” The law protects the assets from seizure by the feds or other forces, too.

There will be many other benefits as well, according to supporters. While other states have in recent years passed legislation declaring gold and silver to be legal tender, analysts say Texas’ new depository could help supercharge the growing movement for an honest and sensible monetary system founded on real money rather than debt-based paper notes conjured into existence by a private banking cartel. Indeed, one of the chief aims of gold-and-silver-as-currency proponents is to restore sound money — and the Texas law could help pave the way.

Then I stumbled across a little CMOS monocular IR camera setup for kids that really can see in complete darkness for a paltry sum. Read on before you blow this idea off completely. I bought the Jakks Pacific Spynet Night Vision goggles on for $25 about two years ago. I figured I’d give it a try, and what I got amazed me.

--Want to use it hands-free? There is a second version called the Eyeclops that works exactly the same, but it has straps for head mounting, freeing up both hands. It ranges from $70-$100, and there are plenty listed on eBay. Both units use four AA batteries and provide hours of use from one set. My Sanyo eneloops worked great in mine.

Leaving the Illusion (2015 Edition)
Source: Submitted: 06/28/2015
Imagine for a moment what it would be like; ten years worth of hard work and a life-long dream, gone. Your self respect and dignity, in shambles. As you question what you're made of, and as you wonder how you'll ever claw your way back to the top, an incredible opportunity presents itself. There is only one catch: It will cost you everything you know about the world around you.

Leaving the Illusion delves into the darkness of an unseen world; a world where the "dominant few" do as they please to the "inferior many" that live beneath them. For the insiders, there is unimaginable wealth, power and privilege. For all others, there is only deception, theft and violence. Given a choice, which group would you join? Are you sure? The price of admission might be more than you can afford.

Unfortunately, the first edition of Leaving the Illusion was rushed a bit (I was in a hurry to start writing Tragedy and Hope 101.) So, I've finally corrected some of the things that bothered me. With a new cover, a light "rewrite," and better interior formatting, I'm finally happy with it. Hope you like it too!
(Sometimes) The Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Citizens
Source: Submitted: 06/24/2015
--In one swoop, on June 22, 2015, a divided U.S. Supreme Court handed down three consecutive rulings affirming the right of raisin farmers, hotel owners and prison inmates. However, this push back against government abuse, government snooping and government theft only came about because some determined citizens stood up and took a stand against tyranny.

The three cases respectively deal with the government’s confiscation of agricultural crops without any guarantee or promise of payment (Horne v. U.S. Department of Agriculture); the practice of police gaining unfettered access to motel and hotel guest registries (City of Los Angeles v. Patel); and the use of tasers and excessive force by prison officials (Kingsley v. Hendrickson).

Ron Paul: Death Penalty is The Ultimate Corrupt, Big Govt. Program
Source: Submitted: 06/23/2015
--As strong as the practical arguments against the death penalty are, the moral case is much stronger. Since it is impossible to develop an error-free death penalty system, those who support the death penalty are embracing the idea that the government should be able to execute innocent people for the "greater good." The idea that the government should be able to force individuals to sacrifice their right to life for imaginary gains in personal safety is even more dangerous to liberty than the idea that the government should be able to force individuals to sacrifice their property rights for imaginary gains in economic security.  Read full article »
What is Jury Nullification?
Source: Submitted: 06/21/2015
--If you believe in a system of checks and balances to keep government power from growing out of control, then you support jury nullification!

Now, let’s look at some important cases in the history of jury nullification…

1.) Fugitive Slave Act Of 1850

Jury nullification was practiced in the 1850s to protest the federal Fugitive Slave Act, which was part of the Compromise of 1850. The Act had been passed to mollify the slave owners from the South, who were otherwise threatening to secede from the Union. Across the North, local juries acquitted men accused of violating the law. Secretary of State Daniel Webster was a key supporter of the law as expressed in his famous “Seventh of March” speech. He wanted high-profile convictions.

The jury nullifications ruined his presidential aspirations and his last-ditch efforts to find a compromise between North and South. Webster led the prosecution when defendants were accused of rescuing Shadrach Minkins in 1851 from Boston officials who intended to return Minkins to his owner; the juries convicted none of the men. Webster tried to enforce a law that was extremely unpopular in the North, and his Whig Party passed over him again when they chose a presidential nominee in 1852.[31]

Inside a counterfeit Facebook farm
Source: Submitted: 06/21/2015
--Celebrities — and more minor personalities, like bloggers trying to get endorsement deals — have increasingly found their value measured in Facebook fans and Twitter followers, and the payments they receive proportionate to their social media clout. Khloé Kardashian reportedly earns around $13,000 every time she tweets things like, "Want to know how Old Navy makes your butt look scary good?" to her 14.5 million followers. Politicians desire large followings for obvious reasons. Even ordinary people have discovered perks to having an extensive social media presence: Some employers, for instance, now require social media savvy for jobs in marketing, PR, or tech.

To help companies, celebrities, and everyday people boost their social media standing, onliners set up internet stores — click farms — where customers can buy social media influence. Click farms can be found across the globe, but are most commonly based in the developing world, in countries like India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and the Philippines. Most are run by smaller teams that manage software to give digital life to accounts like "Ashley Nivens."

Researchers estimate that the market for fake Twitter followers was worth between $40 million and $360 million in 2013, and that the market for Facebook spam was worth $87 million to $390 million. International corporations like Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz, and Louis Vuitton have all been accused of employing click farms, and celebrities like 50 Cent, Paris Hilton, and LeAnn Rimes have been suspected of buying fake followers. During his 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney gained more than 100,000 Twitter followers in a single weekend, despite averaging only 4,000 new followers a day previously. (His campaign denied having bought any fakes.) One Indonesian click farmer told me that he had funneled 2 million Facebook likes to a candidate in his nation's hotly contested July 2014 presidential election.

Former US military personnel urge drone pilots to walk away from controls
Source: Submitted: 06/20/2015
--Forty-five former US military personnel, including a retired army colonel, have issued a joint appeal to the pilots of aerial drones operating in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and elsewhere, calling on them to refuse to carry out the deadly missions.

In a joint letter, the retired and former military members call on air force pilots based at Creech air force base in Nevada and Beale air force base in California to refuse to carry out their duties. They say the missions, which have become an increasingly dominant feature of US military strategy in recent years, “profoundly violate domestic and international laws”.

“At least 6,000 lives have been unjustly taken by US drone attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, the Philippines, Libya and Syria. These attacks are also undermining principles of international law and human rights,” the authors write.

Same Game, Different Name

--Cisa, which supporters have euphemistically labeled “info-sharing” legislation, essentially carves a giant hole in our privacy laws to allow tech companies like Google and Facebook to hand over our private data to the government with no legal process whatsoever. The bill is a disaster for transparency too: it contains what would be the first exemption to the Freedom of Information Act in 50 years, which could allow corporations to hide all sorts of information from public view that have nothing to do with cybersecurity.  Read full article »
TSA's Fake Security Fails to Detect Threats 95% of the Time
Source: Submitted: 06/14/2015
--"An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.

The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.

According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.

--One way to think about this is as a grave threat to national security. The agency that’s in charge of addressing threats to America’s air travel is rudderless, and even the acting administrator has been kicked off the boat. ...

Another way to think about it is, so what? … Flying remains exceptionally safe, despite such high TSA failure rates. Like vaudeville theater, the screening process seems to exist largely to create a spectacle."

Logistics 101: Where Does ISIS Get Its Guns?
Source: Submitted: 06/09/2015
--While many across the West play willfully ignorant as to where ISIS truly gets their supplies from in order to maintain its impressive fighting capacity, some journalists have traveled to the region and have video taped and reported on the endless convoys of trucks supplying the terrorist army.

Were these trucks traveling to and from factories in seized ISIS territory deep within Syrian and Iraqi territory? No. They were traveling from deep within Turkey, crossing the Syrian border with absolute impunity, and headed on their way with the implicit protection of nearby Turkish military forces. Attempts by Syria to attack these convoys and the terrorists flowing in with them have been met by Turkish air defenses.

Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) published the first video report from a major Western media outlet illustrating that ISIS is supplied not by “black market oil” or “hostage ransoms” but billions of dollars worth of supplies carried into Syria across NATO member Turkey’s borders via hundreds of trucks a day.
