German “Officials” Call to Change Constitution After Munich Shooting; Military On Streets, Gun Control

The bodies of the victims of Munich’s recent mass shooting barely cold, German “authorities” and politicians have wasted no time in calling for more police state measures and the further clamp down on access to gun ownership in Germany. Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is now pushing for going so far as to revise the German Constitution so that limits placed on using the military domestically can be removed, allowing the German military to be used inside Germany for “large-scale terrorist situations.”

WikiLeaks Publishes 23,035 Clinton E-mails Marked Classified When She Received Them

After spending more than a year denying — and avoiding indictment for — sending and receiving classified information over her unsecured, private e-mail server, Hillary Clinton still can’t shake the truth. Besides the DNC e-mails that are making waves in the news because they show that the Democratic National Committee violated its own rules to help Clinton win the Democrat presidential nomination, WikiLeaks also released a trove of leaked e-mails from Clinton’s server. Those e-mails prove irrefutably that Clinton sent and received information that was classified at the time.

First of Its Kind Study Shows 55,400 People Hospitalized or Killed by US Cops in a Single Year

If anyone needed a reminder that America has a police brutality problem, the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile provided it. Actual numbers on violent police encounters are difficult to come by, but this dearth of data is getting more attention. New research published in the British Medical Journal demonstrates the danger posed to citizens by the most routine police practice of a “legal stop.” Researchers analyzed 12.3 million police interventions from 2012 and found that approximately 55,400 people were injured or killed by cops during legal stop and search incidents in one year. Of this number, about 1,000 were killed, with vast majority dying from gunshot wounds. The remaining 54,400 were hospitalized with serious injuries, mostly from blunt objects.

As Biometric Scanning Use Grows, So Does Security Risk

Without you necessarily realizing it, your unique attributes — or “biometrics” — are being used to verify your identity. Every time you unlock your smartphone, use a fingerprint scanner at the airport, or upload a photo with facial recognition to Facebook, your physical attributes are scanned and scrutinized against a template.

Wikileaks Emails Bring New Attention to Hillary Victory Fund “Money Laundering” Charges

The problem with conspiracy theorists is that, quite frequently, the theorists lack adequate imagination. That seems to be the case when it comes to the Democratic National Committee’s behind-the-scenes machinations to muscle Hillary Clinton into the White House while plotting against her main challenger, Bernie Sanders. That conclusion stems from the trove of20,000 DNC emails dumped into the public sphere by Wikileaks last Friday.

Obama Backs Off Plan to Demilitarize Police After Meeting With Lobbyists

Police militarization has been a hot button issue for quite some time, but it wasn’t until last year’s Ferguson riots — which erupted after a jury declined to bring charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown — that President Barack Obama decided to take action. In May of 2015, the Obama administration decided to ban the sale of certain kinds of military equipment to police departments, leaving local law enforcement agents without access to items such as bayonets, armored vehicles, camouflage uniforms, large-caliber weapons and ammunition, and grenade launchers. Facing harsh criticism from police, Obama defended his position, claiming, “We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they’re an occupying force.” Instead, Obama added, we should be working to make police “a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them.”

Facebook admits it blocked links to DNC email leaks after censorship accusations

Facebook has confirmed without reason that it temporarily blocked links to the WikiLeaks files of leaked internal Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails. The social media giant came under fire from followers, with WikiLeaks accusing it of “censorship.” A number of people encountered problems when they tried to post links to the WikiLeaks files - which exposed the DNC's bias against Bernie Sanders - on Facebook on Saturday. Error messages said the links had been "detected to be unsafe" by Facebook's security system, and asked users “to remove links to continue.”

Peak Irony: Mexico Wants To Build The Wall To Stop Illegal Immigration

It turns out that Donald Trump’s proposed border wall is not such a bad idea after all. Though Mexico’s current and former Presidents have both lambasted Trump for implying that a wall would curb immigration, it turns out that Mexicans like the idea. There is one small caveat, however. Mexicans don’t want to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, but rather, they want to stem the tide of immigration into their own country by building the wall on their southern border with central America:

The Secret Documents That Detail How Patients’ Privacy is Breached

When the federal government takes the rare step of fining medical providers for violating the privacy and security of patients’ medical information, it issues a press release andposts details on the web. But thousands of times a year, the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services resolves complaints about possible violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act quietly, outside public view. It sends letters reminding providers of their legal obligations, advising them on how to fix purported problems, and, sometimes, prodding them to make voluntary changes. Case closed.

FCC Puts U.S. Cell Phone Routing System in Hands of European Firm despite Security Warnings

The Federal Communications Commission has decided to make a European-owned company the clearinghouse for routing billions of cellphone calls and text messages across the United States, despite claims by critics that the plan poses national security risks, officials said Thursday. The FCC’s approval, which has not been publicly announced, will give a New Jersey subsidiary of Ericsson, the Swedish technology giant, the obscure but critical job of operating a sprawling national system to track and route wireless calls and texts among hundreds of service providers. The routing system began in the 1990s as a way for people to keep their cellphone numbers when they switched carriers, but intelligence and law enforcement agencies have come to rely on it to track and trace phone numbers in investigations.
