  • Edward Snowden: WikiLeaks document dump on CIA hacking capability 'looks authentic

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/7/17 | Daniel Chaitin
    Edward Snowden Tweeted the following: "If you're writing about the CIA/@Wikileaks story, here's the big deal: first public evidence USG secretly paying to keep US software unsafe. pic.twitter.com/kYi0NC2mOp" During the time of the dust up over Snowden, I wrote my Seminal article dealing with this. Under the 1996 Telecom Act, Software and Equipment manufacturers are required to provide backdoor access and were compensated to do it. Why? Because, it is unconstitutional to make such a demand. However, as "an Investor" in these companies, the givernment has the right of ownership and access to technologies they "invest in". That is how...
  • Katy Tur: Trump Tried to Pull Me Onstage To Wave Like ‘a Wife or Something’

    Of all the reporters with whom Donald Trump sparred during his campaign, a favorite target was NBC’s Katy Tur. Trump called Tur out by name more than once, as here and here. So it was fascinating to hear Tur, appearing on today’s Morning Joe, report that Trump was very friendly to her behind the scenes. She described two anecdotes. In the first, said Tur, Trump tried to pull her up on the stage to wave to the crowd “as if I was his wife or something.” View the video here.

    Rep. Lamar Smith is pushing ahead in his committee's effort to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for her private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. On Thursday, Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, announced that he is going to hold the Platte River Networks, which set up and maintained Clinton’s server, in contempt of Congress when lawmakers return to Washington following the November election. “Platte River continues to obstruct our committee’s investigation into the possible misuse security of former Secretary Clinton’s private e-mail server,” Smith told a packed press conference on Capitol Hill."
  • Was The 'Circle Of Fire' In The Sky Over Jerusalem Just Before Rosh Hashanah Real Or Fake

    TheMostImportantNews.com ^ | 7OCT2016 | Michael Snyder
    At first I thought that this was fake, but now I don’t know what to think. On October 1st, a video was posted to YouTube that claimed to show a very strange “circle of fire” in the clouds that seemed to respond to the blowing of the shofars in the city of Jerusalem below. When this video came out, many immediately dismissed it as a fake because it is only 20 seconds long and because computer-generated graphics can produce these kinds of effects. If you have not seen the video yet, you can see it right here… Since so many...
  • Fighter Jets Scramble to Escort Air France Plane to JFK Airport Following Threat

    An Air France plane was being escorted to JFK airport in New York City this morning after an anonymous threat was made against the flight, a senior U.S. official told ABC News. The Maryland State Police Fusion Center received an anonymous call of a “chemical weapons threat” aboard Air France Flight 22, which is en route from Paris and is expected to land at the New York City airport later this morning. The threat is not considered to be credible at the moment, but when officials tried to reach Air France representatives they were unsuccessful because it is also a...

    The IRS may have inadvertently figured out how to win its legal battles against aggrieved tea party groups: Give them what they wanted in the first place — tax-exempt status. That was a major reason a Republican-appointed federal judge on Thursday threw out two lawsuits brought by more than 40 conservative groups seeking remedies for being singled out in the tea party targeting scandal, a victory for the IRS.

    Now that Cantor, a Turncoat, has been sent packing, we need to finish the criminal conspiracy between him, Dick Boehner and Witch McConnell. Send Money, take a trip to do walks and knocks in opposition, get the word out to friends and enemies. They must be defeated. The Republic cannot take any more of their shenanigans.

  • Aussie restaurateur Paul Mathis invents new letter of the Alphabet

    WOULDN'T it be easier if the word "the" was just simply a letter? Well at least one person seems to think so. Aussie restaurateur, Paul Mathis has invented a new letter of the alphabet to replace the word "the" because he thinks it is more efficient. The letter looks like the Cyrillic letter 'Đ‹'. If an upper case T and a lower case h were to have a typographic baby, this is what it would look like. Mathis has invested $38,000 into developing the symbol which he would like to see added as a 27th letter of the alphabet. "The...

    New York City's Czar Michael Bloomberg today proposed banning metal and plastic tableware in NYC. Czar Bloomberg cited the injuries caused by the metal and plastic tableware as the primary reason for the ban, although environmental and dietary concerns were also factored in the decision. Czar Bloomberg cited the statistics and chart developed by Dr. Michael Mann, of Global Warming fame, to support the estimated 20,000,000 injuries each year caused by the offending tableware. When Dr. Mann was questioned about the data and the methodology used to develop and prepare the chart, Dr. Mann accused the questioners of being "deniers"...

    “In popular culture, the phrase ‘city on a hill’ has become so closely identified with Ronald Reagan and before him with John Winthrop that even Christians can forget that the words originated not with a founder of a colony but with the Founder of their faith,” Richard M. Gamble writes in his new book, In Search Of The City On A Hill: The Making and Unmaking Of An American Myth. Gamble teaches at Hillsdale. “The metaphor of the city on a hill comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew,” Gamble reminds us. Specifically,...

Of course everybody said the white kid deserved it he was born a racist, he's white." Glenn Beck believes that Obama is a "a guy who has exposed himself, over and over again who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or the white culture....I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem...This guy is, I believe, a racist."

    Cynthia Nixon of “Sex In The City” fame (I finally got to see it on E years after its run on HBO; what a loathsome show about some lonely, superficial people) is gay. She said it was a choice — a statement that has angered certain people who want to stifle her free speech and dictate how she feels. First the over-reaction from John Aravosis: “It’s not a ‘choice,’ unless you consider my opting to date a guy with brown hair versus a guy with blonde hair a ‘choice,’” he writes. “It’s only a choice among flavors I already like…...
