  • State Department Purged Video Archive To Cover Up Deception On Iran Negotiations

    Daily Caller ^ | 5/10/16 | Russ Read
    Fox News correspondent James Rosen has accused the Department of State of removing video of a question he asked on the Iranian nuclear negotiations in order to cover-up an alleged deception. Recent revelations from a New York Times Magazine profile on Ben Rhodes, President Obama’s deputy national security adviser for communication and speech writing, show that the administration was involved in secret talks with the Iranian government before official negotiations began in 2013. The information contradicts an exchange Rosen had with former State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. “Late today, we discovered that the State Department’s video of its December 2,...

    Within hours of the news breaking that Hillary Clinton exclusively used a private e-mail account while she was secretary of state, employees across the federal government fired up their computers to share their disbelief. “How is this even possible?” Michael McDonald, general counsel at the National Endowment for the Humanities, asked his deputy Lisette Voyatzis in an e-mail sent March 3, 2015. “They [the State Department] are as ass-backwards as NEH when it comes to records management. That’s comforting,” she replied. Charles Beamon, the top ethics official at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, sent Clinton’s story staff-wide as a cautionary...

    ... A researcher has found a way to exploit popular archival utility WinRAR to remotely execute malicious code on users' computers, without any interaction being required. Iranian researcher Mohammad Reza Espargham found that it was possible to use WinRAR SFX 2.51 to add malicious payloads that would execute when users decompress archives. A specially crafted hyper text mark-up language (HTML) text file that is parsed and which attempts to download and run potentially malicious code can be included in WinRAR SFX archives, Espargham noted. The researcher suggested secure parsing of the text file, and encoding of the URL value parameter...

  • Kennedy, Romney battle for the middle (Archive- Romney Promising to Move Left)

    Indeed, asked in late summer by a gay group whether he supported recognition of gay marriage, [Kennedy, Romney] made clear just how much he has modeled himself on Weld. Romney said he "stood with Gov. Weld" in believing "it is not appropriate at this time." He added: "I am sure he will study it and evaluate it and I will endorse his position on that." The Kennedy camp clearly hopes those ads can drive a wedge between Romney and those Reagan or Silber Democrats who might otherwise be interested in his themes of change.

    President Clinton, with Republican businessman Mitt Romney by his side, assailed GOP-controlled congressional panels yesterday for voting to abolish federal aid to the AmeriCorps national service programs, including Boston-based City Year. Meeting in the Cabinet Room with Romney and other AmeriCorps supporters and members, Clinton blamed partisan politics for the attack on his prized community service initiative. City Year, which has expanded to seven cities since it was founded in Boston in 1988, formed the model for AmeriCorps. In Boston, City Year involves more than 300 young people whose duties range from painting church fences to working in schools to...

    Plunging into the heated debate over taxes among Republican presidential contenders, former US Senate candidate Mitt Romney today is running a series of full-page newspaper ads attacking the 17 percent flat tax proposed by candidate Steve Forbes. "The problem with the Forbes flat tax is that it isn't flat at all -- it's a zero tax on the wealthy and a 17 percent tax on working Americans," Romney said yesterday. "I'm hoping that by running these ads voters will realize the Forbes flat tax is a gimmick, a phony, and not what it pretends to be." The ads note that...

    Rove memo found in Nixon archive WASHINGTON, July 14 (UPI) -- Even as a 22-year-old, U.S. Republican political operative Karl Rove had a propensity for slicing and dicing the electorate, it was reported Saturday. The New York Times said it found early evidence of Rove's organizational ability tucked inside 78,000 pages of Nixon administration documents released last week by the National Archives. Within those pages is a nine-page memo written in 1973 by Rove, who would go on to become the architect of George W. Bush's rise to political power. Rove outlines for Anne Armstrong, then co-chairman of the Republican...

    BAD AROLSEN, Germany - Within weeks of Hitler's 1933 rise to power, the iron gates slammed shut on inmates of the first Nazi concentration camps. It was the start of an unparalleled experiment in persecution and genocide that expanded over the next 12 years into a pyramid of ghettos, Gestapo prisons, slave labor camps and, ultimately, extermination factories. Holocaust historians are only now piecing together the scattered research in many languages to understand the vast scope of the camps, prisons and punishment centers that scarred German-ruled Europe, like a pox on the landscape stretching from Greece to Norway and eastward...

    An al-Qaida-linked extremist group warned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday that he and the West were "doomed," as protesters raged across the Muslim world to demand more of an apology from the pontiff for his remarks about Islam and violence. The Mujahedeen Shura Council, an umbrella organization of Sunni Arab extremist groups that includes al-Qaida in Iraq, issued a statement on a Web forum vowing to continue its holy war against the West. The authenticity of the statement could not be independently verified. The group said Muslims would be victorious and addressed the pope as "the worshipper of the cross"...
