  • Germany Passes Bill To Fine FaceBook, Twitter Up To $50MM For "Fake News"

    Zero Hedge ^ | Tyler Durden
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has apparently decided she's not willing to take the chance of becoming the latest politician to fall victim to the same "Russian hacking" and "fake news" campaigns which 'undoubtedly' caused the downfall of America's liberal darling, Hillary Clinton (forget those pay-for-play scandals, federal record retention violations and willful non-compliance with Congressional subpeonas...total non-factors in the 2016 election). And since they can't really control the actions of those pesky 'Russian hackers," Germany's cabinet has instead decided to pass legislation that would impose serious fines of up to 50 million Euros on any social networks that fail to...
  • The $400 million payment to Iran was American diplomacy at its finest

    08/12/2016 3:29:21 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 43 replies
    The latest victim in the presidential race’s assault on truth — to say nothing of nuance — came last week in the flurry of accusations surrounding the United States’ payment of $400 million to Iran. Donald Trump called it ransom, and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) accused the United States of acting like a “drug cartel.” In reality, the payment represented continued adherence to a masterful feat of American diplomacy and to the peaceful resolution of disputes under international law. Ronald Reagan understood how important it is for us to keep our promises — which is why, as president, he upheld...

    Ads from campaign committees, super PACs and other interested groups are filling the airwaves in Iowa and New Hampshire. According to the Wesleyan Media Group, over 80 percent of the TV ads are being run by outside spending groups, mainly super PACs (>). Although radio ads get less attention, the ad wars are being waged on radio as well as TV.

    Based on secret evidence, a New Jersey court is allowing Gov. Chris Christie to hide American Express bills that show how his state police security team charged more than $1 million to pay for out-of-state travel. Judge Mary C. Jacobson dismissed a public records suit by New Jersey Watchdog on Friday, ruling that details of past expenses for food, lodging and transportation could create a potential security risk for the governor in the future. “The court finds the general interest of the public to have a breakdown pales in comparison,” said Jacobson during a hearing in Mercer County Superior Court....

    The federal government is now asking about 800,000 to delay filing their taxes, which means they’ll get their returns later. About 800,000 Healthcare.gov customers got the wrong tax information from the federal government, and now the Obama Administration is asking those people to hold off filing their 2014 taxes, the Associated Press reported. The error was revealed by officials on Friday. The end result is that these people will have to wait longer to get their tax refunds. “Another 50,000 or so who already filed may have to resubmit their returns,” the AP reported.
  • GOP House votes to repeal Obamacare, wastes over $70 million in the process

    Examiner ^ | 2/03/15
    **SNIP** The bill passed as a perfect example of partisan politics. Passing with a vote of 239-186, all but three Republicans and no Democrats pushed the bill through. Based on calculation by CBS News in 2013, following the 33rd repeal, the Daily Kos notes that Republicans had spent an estimated $72.5 million in tax payer money attempting to repeal the law. Obamacare has resulted in a mix bag, proving to be less destructive than Republicans had warned, but not as effective as Obama and the Democrats had promised. Nearly 10 million more Americans have access to affordable health care, but...

    **SNIP** Hong Kong police have asked anyone who grabbed the money to return it authorities as soon as possible. “Otherwise, they may have committed the crime of theft,” Wan Siu-hong, a district police officer, told reporters, according to Radio Television Hong Kong. There was an estimated 35 million Hong Kong dollars --- $4.5 million US -- in the van. About $2.5 million has been recovered. Nearly $2 million is missing, according to the police. The van belongs to G4S, a British security company. According to the South China Morning Post, the company said it was liable for the multimillion-dollar loss...

    Gun Owners of America ^ | 12 December 2014
    You’ve probably heard the news already regarding the corrupt anti-gun government funding bill which passed late last night. In the end, even liberal Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) balked about supporting the bill, known as the Cromnibus. But Boehner was aided by Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who worked the phone tirelessly Thursday, giddy at the prospect that Boehner would agree to fund Obama's illegal executive actions on gun control, immigration and the anti-gun ObamaCare. In the end, the Boehner-Obama-Biden team was able to pass the giant $1.1 trillion anti-gun bill by a vote of 219-206. And 162 House Republicans who...

    **SNIP** Much like individual policyholders last year, small group plan holders are discovering their plans don’t qualify for being grandfathered, despite the famed assurance that if they liked their plans they could keep them. “If you had your plan prior to March 2010 when Obamacare became law, it was supposed to be grandfathered in. You were supposed to keep it, but the Department of Labor came out with these grandfather regulations. It’s almost like telling a guy you can keep walking on the beach as long as you don’t get any sand on your feet. It’s almost impossible not to...
  • NSA Paid a Huge Security Firm $10 Million to Keep Encryption Weak

    Reuters reports that the NSA paid massive computer security firm RSA $10 million to promote a flawed encryption system so that the surveillance organization could wiggle its way around security. In other words, the NSA bribed the firm to leave the back door to computers all over the world open. Thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden, we already knew the NSA played a central role in promoting a flawed formula for generating random numbers, which if used in encryption, essentially gives the spies easy access to computing systems. A piece of RSA software, bSafe, became the most significant vector...

    More than 1.3 million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits on December 28 as a budget deal proposal in Congress fails to extend the federal program. The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program is not included into the budget deal that would likely pass the Senate this week. Senate Democrats have admitted that they would miss the deadline to extend the benefits and Senate Republicans have not paid attention to the issue at all.

    “Historians and pundits always say that the first real decision a governor makes is the one of running mate,” Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, Ohio Democrats’ likely nominee for governor next year, wrote to supporters when he announced he had chosen state Sen. Eric Kearney (D) as his running mate. FitzGerald may be starting to wish voters weren’t paying attention to his first gubernatorial decision. That’s because, in the two weeks since joining the ticket, Kearney has been under almost constant barrage for owing back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. And the campaign’s response to the revelations about their...

The bikers’ Facebook page has exploded with over 100,000 likes, almost doubling the number in just two days. Biker clubs from all over America have signed on to participate in the ride and some clubs...
