Jade Helm, Terrorist Attacks, Surveillance & Other Fairy Tales For A Gullible Nation

When terrorists attacked the country, and government officials claimed to have been caught by surprise, the people believed them. And when the government passed massive laws aimed at locking down the nation and opening the door to total government surveillance, the people believed it was done merely to keep them safe. The few who disagreed were labeled traitors. When the government waged costly preemptive wars on foreign countries, insisting it was necessary to protect the nation, the citizens believed it. And when the government brought the weapons and tactics of war home to use against the populace, claiming it was just a way to recycle old equipment, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were labeled unpatriotic.

Police raid programmer who reported flaw in Argentinian e-voting system

Local police have raided the home of an Argentinian programmer who reported a flaw in an e-voting system that was used this weekend for local elections in Buenos Aires. The police took away all of his devices that could store data. According to a report in the newspaper La Nación, Joaquín Sorianello had told the company MSA, which makes the Vot.ar e-voting system, about the problem after he discovered information on the protected Twitter account @FraudeVotar. This revealed that the SSL certificates used to encrypt transmissions between the voting stations and the central election office could be easily downloaded, potentially allowing fraudulent figures to be sent.

Playing the Trump Card for Political Correctness

The hideous disgust, that so many American have for politics, has raised its wretched head once again. The culprits are familiar. The tactics are well established. And the source of the slime comes out of a pathetic nihilism that is known as “Political Correctness”. The cultural assault that has turned political dialogue into an authoritarian inquisition lies at the foundation of much of what is wrong with public life. Free Speech does not exist for those, who presume to challenge the sacred tenants of totalitarian assimilation. Any society that punishes someone who opposes the mythical postulates that racism, equal rights and a collectivist world view is dangerous. When the only allowable viewpoint is dictated by Marxist comrades, coexistence is not possible.

NYPD destroyed evidence in class action lawsuit against department

The New York Police Department (NYPD) has destroyed evidence in an ongoing lawsuit against it, which alleges that police use a secret quota system to make arrests, new documents claim. The class action suit alleges that NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly and former Chief of Department Joseph Esposito were secretly applying pressure to officers to issue more arrests after falling short of quotas for traffic offenses and low-level crime, resulting in up to 850,000 wrongful summonses – or written notifications to a party telling them where and when they need to be in court. Some summons cases leave the recipient with a criminal record.

Oregon Is First State to Charge Drivers for Each Mile They Drive

When he's not riding his bicycle, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, an Oregon Democrat, said he's driving a fuel-efficient hybrid, and that's a problem, because it means he's not paying his "fair share" for highway maintenance. Blumenauer says that's why he signed up for OReGO, the nation's first program to charge drivers based on the number of miles they drive.

ERIC HOLDER RETURNS AS HERO TO LAW FIRM THAT LOBBIES FOR BIG BANKS

After failing to criminally prosecute any of the financial firms responsible for the market collapse in 2008, former Attorney General Eric Holder is returning to Covington & Burling, a corporate law firm known for serving Wall Street clients. The move completes one of the more troubling trips through the revolving door for a cabinet secretary. Holder worked at Covington from 2001 right up to being sworn in as attorney general in Feburary 2009. And Covington literally kept an office empty for him, awaiting his return.

New Zealand Parliament Overwhelmingly Decides Free Speech Must Take A Backseat To Cyberbullying Concerns

New Zealand is the latest country to "do something" about online trolling. A rather comprehensive anti-cyberbullying act passed its third reading in the Parliament by a significant margin (116-5) and is awaiting royal assent. The "Harmful Digital Communications Act" criminalizes plenty of speech, mainly through the use of broad wording.

Chicago to tax Netflix and other online movies and music to help cover growing deficit created by failed policies

Politicians get elected by making expensive, grandiose promises that are virtually impossible to fund. The voters, excited by the politicians promises, elect said politician, who proceeds to gleefully waste the money of the taxpayers on frivolous things. Then, when the inevitable budget shortfall rears its ugly head, they strong-arm the public into supporting tax increases by blaming the deficit on those who are principally opposed to tax increases and by threatening to cut funding for more popular public programs like education and the fire department. You can watch this cycle play out again and again. Maybe one day we’ll break it, but that day isn’t today.

Central Banks Scramble to Rescue… Stocks, Not Greece

Stocks are sacred. Except those in Greece where no one knows when banks will reopen and what currency or IOUs or whatever they will dispense when they do reopen, and no one knows how Greek businesses are supposed to function under these circumstances, how they’re supposed to pay their employees and produce and sell things and provide services. And no one knows what Greek stocks are worth because the Athens Stock Exchange remains closed.

Just days after accusing the Troika of engaging in financial terrorism

Just days after accusing the Troika of engaging in financial terrorism, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has resigned, writing on his blog that he will “wear the creditors’ loathing with pride.” The day before the country’s crucial referendum, Varoufakis told Spain’s El Mundo newspaper that the Troika forced Greece to close its banks for a week in order to “instil fear” and force a ‘yes’ vote – a move that ultimately failed.
