    British 15-year-old gained access to intelligence operations in Afghanistan and Iran by pretending to be head of CIA, court hears A 15-year-old gained access to plans for intelligence operations in Afghanistan and Iran by pretending to be the head of the CIA to gain access to his computers, a court has heard. From the bedroom of the Leicestershire home he shared with his mother, Kane Gamble used “social engineering” – where a person builds up a picture of information and uses it manipulate others into handing over more – to access the personal and work accounts of some of America's...
  • Conservatives: Worried about losing the internet? I have an idea; record an audiobook

    It is almost certain that with giving the internet to "the world", that people with voices who say certain things run the risk of being silenced. One possible solution: You should record an audiobook. Here's why. As an example, one audiobook that I recorded was The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution, which highlights the black patriots that fought side by side against the British for American Independence and liberty. I completed that entire book on Valentines Day of this year, the day believed by some to be Frederick Douglass' birthday. Why is this book important? Have you ever run...

    Win 7 tried to stop piracy, by disabling a feature of Win XP: You can run recording software that picks up on what is coming in over the speakers.Wouldn't it be great if they had got rid of this on Win 10?There are still some Win XP computers on CraigsList, they're dirt cheap, yes, they're enormous, but I just keep it under the dresser, some time when I need to be able to record something I'm picking up on a podcast or youtube, it works great, it's nearly free.

    Despite the message of love that permeates Living Waters Publications' newest film, Audacity, LGBT activists are warning others away from watching it, giving it poor online reviews with comments such as "avoid at all costs." For the film's executive producer Ray Comfort, however, this is music to his ears. "This is the best thing that could have happened. It's not even out yet and they are telling people not to watch it. That's going to make them want to watch it to see how any movie could possibly be that bad; and they are going to get a shock when...
  • Audacity - The Movie

    06/26/2015 9:49:12 AM PDT · by Lucky9teen
    From Living Waters, creators of the award-winning TV program “The Way of the Master” and the hit movies “180” and “Evolution vs. God,” comes the powerful film “Audacity.” Executive produced by TV co-host and best-selling author Ray Comfort (Hell’s Best Kept Secret, Scientific Facts in the Bible), this film delivers an unexpected, eye-opening look at the controversial topic of homosexuality. Peter (Travis Owens) is an aspiring comedian encouraged by his friend Ben (Ben Price, Australia’s Got Talent finalist) to perform at the local comedy club. But stage fright isn’t Peter’s only fear. When confronted with one of today’s most...

    Hello all. A few weeks back I petitioned Freepers in my need to find a good program to recode videos I downloaded from Amazon. Amazon Unbox is being discontinued and the program you all suggested (Audials) has been the key to salvaging my video collection. Now I need a program to edit various audio files. I've used Wavepad in the past but it has become user "unfriendly" in the last couple of years. The program doesn't have to be complex or "busy looking." I just need something that is simple to use yet powerful enough to edit various types of...

    Obama’s morally confused foreign policy is making the world more dangerous by the day. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress on Tuesday to warn Americans of the anti-Western threats from theocratic — and likely to soon be nuclear — Iran. Netanyahu came to the U.S. to outline the Iranian plan to remake the Middle East with a new nuclear arsenal. His warning was delivered over the objections of the Obama administration, which wants to cut a deal with Iran that allows the theocracy to continue to enrich lots of uranium. Netanyahu received a standing ovation for stating the...

    Well, sorry, I wasn't quite correct last time. This time I followed through. This is the straight poop. Audacity is free, open source, cross-platform software for recording and editing sounds.   "Audacity is available for Windows, Mac, Linux; and other operating systems. Check their feature list, wiki, and forum."  Audacity is a great success, a user-community produced and managed application program that does what it's supposed to. Years ago you used to have to pay for this software, now it's free, but you have to invest your time in learning how to use it. The worst rub is the learning curve. So many times,...

    Some businesses -- mainly restaurants -- "are asking customers to help foot the bill for Obamacare" by adding an Affordable Care Act surcharge on their tabs, CNNMoney reports. Case in point: At least eight Gator's Dockside restaurants in central Florida are now charging a so-called "Obamacare fee" that amounts to 1 percent of a customer's check. Should your business include an Obamacare fee or surcharge on customer bills? Surcharge or Raise Prices? A surcharge is an added liability imposed on something that is already due, such as a tax on tax. A valid surcharge requires full disclosure of the fee...

    Trevor Whipple, the police chief in South Burlington, told Fox News that his department incurred $4,200 in overtime expenses as a result of separate fundraising events featuring President Obama and the First Lady. ...... “The president is the president wherever he goes and whatever he does,” Vermont Democratic Party Chairman Jake Perkinson told Fox News. “I don’t think there’s any credible reason to be nickel and diming the security of the President of the United States or his family.” Perkinson said taxpayers should be happy to cover the cost of the president’s fundraising visit to Vermont.

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich believes he has invented a bold new way of running a political campaign. "I told somebody at one point, 'This is like watching (Sam) Walton or (Ray) Kroc develop Walmart and McDonald's,' " Gingrich told the authors of "Playbook 2012: The Right Fights Back." The secret ingredient: Newt. Before him, Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann also ran successful insurgent campaigns - until their bubbles burst. But Gingrich added his own innovation to the model: He soared in the polls months after most of his campaign staff quit because the former speaker and his wife, Callista,...

    Video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller shows Illinois Senator Barack Obama, then campaigning for Democrats before the 2006 midterm elections, praising Reverend Jeremiah Wright and telling an audience that he “stole” the title of his book “The Audacity of Hope” from Wright’s sermon of the same name, which he “loved.” Obama also referred to Wright as “my pastor.” “I’m not plugging the book, but the title of it, ‘The Audacity of Hope.’ Some people have noticed that I actually used that line in the speech that I gave at the 2004 Democratic Convention,” Obama said on November 4, 2006...

    President Obama, drawing immediate condemnation from congressional Republicans, unveiled a new deficit reduction plan Monday anchored by $1.5 trillion in new taxes. The president, announcing a plan in the Rose Garden that includes more than $2 trillion total in entitlement cuts and tax increases over the next decade, rejected demands made last week by House Speaker John Boehner. The speaker had said tax hikes should be off the table as a newly formed bipartisan committee meets to extract long-term deficit savings. Read more:

    I can’t remember a more stunning rebuke of a president by a congressional leader than House speaker John Boehner’s refusal to agree to Pres. Barack Obama’s demand — er, request — that he summon a joint session of Congress to hear the president’s latest speech on the economy at 8 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 7. Obama’s request was regarded as a clever move by some wiseguys in the Left blogosphere, because that was the exact time of a long-scheduled Republican presidential candidates’ debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Take that, you guys!

    Obama's "Audacity of Hope" slogan goes back to the French Revolution, now mainly remembered for its bloodthirsty guillotine executions of the French aristocracy. As Edmund Burke wrote in his classic work Reflections on the Revolution in France, the French Revolution was all about destroying the Old Regime in pursuit of a utopian dream, while the American Revolution was about constructing a new, practical style of government. The American Constitution survives two centuries later. The French Revolution collapsed into anarchy, and was transformed by Napoleon into the first European imperial conquest since the Romans. Napoleon went on to kill tens of...

    By readopting his arrogant professor persona and likening Republican stonewalling on the budget to Sasha and Malia procrastinating on homework, the president is putting himself on dangerous ground for 2012. When President Obama used the example of his daughters finishing their homework on time to scold Republican lawmakers for putting off tough decisions about the budget, you may have realized, with some horror, that the president had become narrative-challenged. The story of The One, the Messianic Figure, the Soulful Black Man Come to Redeem a Fallen America, the Quintessential Stranger Who Was Thus the Quintessential Figure of American Democracy—the thrilling,...

    A ship flying US colors and carrying 34 passengers is set to joint this year's Gaza-bound, IHH-sponsored “Freedom Flotilla 2” in June, the New York Times reported. So-called “peace activists” on the first IHH flotilla in May 2010 ambushed Israeli naval commandos who boarded the ship in accordance with international law, attempted to take them captive, and seriously injuring several. The commandos were forced to kill nine aggressors in order to rescue their imperiled comrades. This year's American vessel, named The Audacity of Hope after US President Barack Obama’s best-selling book, is being organized by an American group called “US...

    A few days ago President Obama had an editorial published in the Wall Street Journal. The piece titled “Toward a 21st-Century Regulatory System” has Obama all but sounding Republican. Sometimes, those rules have gotten out of balance, placing unreasonable burdens on business—burdens that have stifled innovation and have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs.The President’s piece tries to please his left leaning supporters by reminding them that his executive order is far from deregulation. At the same time President Obama points to glaring examples of the utter stupidity that can be our overly intrusive regulatory system. The best...
