Police State

The only reason nobody talked about the security problems caused by the internet of things before devices were built is government, not consumers, is pushing it.

Judge explains why suddenly government is pushing for biometric security on devices, and it's not security.
"Circuit Court decision from Virginia where a judge has ruled that a criminal defendant cannot use Fifth Amendment protections to safeguard a phone that is locked using his or her fingerprint. According to Judge Steven C. Fucci, while a criminal defendant can't be compelled to hand over a passcode to police officers for the purpose of unlocking a cellular device, law enforcement officials can compel a defendant to give up a fingerprint. The Fifth Amendment states that "no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself," which protects memorized information like passwords and passcodes, but it does not extend to fingerprints in the eyes of the law, as speculated by Wired last year. Frucci said that "giving police a fingerprint is akin to providing a DNA or handwriting sample or an actual key, which the law permits. A passcode, though, requires the defendant to divulge knowledge, which the law protects against, according to Frucci's written opinion.""
Suddenly the push to replace passwords with biometrics becomes clear. I'll stick with my password.

Unable to find evidence of dark matter, theorists come up with silly new theory.
"In fact, a particle with some properties opposite to those of physicists' current favorite dark matter candidate—the weakly interacting massive particle, or WIMP—would do just as good a job at explaining the stuff, a quartet of theorists says. Hypothetical strongly interacting massive particles—or SIMPs—would also better account for some astrophysical observations, they argue."
Can't find WIMPs. Imagine SIMPs and call it science.

The war on terror has created more terrorists.
"Going back a decade or so to when Bush launched the war on terror, which I see as a consequence of or at least highly congruent with the Cheney-Powell-Rumsfeld-Wolfowitz (CPRW) defense strategy, the terrorist numbers are also iffy. The Wikipedia article on al-Qaeda says that in 2002 there was a core membership of 170. But how many trained fighters were there in its camp?
In the mid-80s, there were “thousands” of mujahideen in Afghanistan who might be considered as possible terrorist members when that war wound down. One source says tens of thousands. In Iraq, al-Zarqari’s contingent was estimated at 1,000-3,000 fighters."
But now...
"The CIA says that ISIS has 20,000-31,500 fighters. Iraqi sources say 100,000. Other estimates are 20,000-50,000."
That's a lot more, and it doesn't include al Qaeda affiliates.

15,000 foreign fighters join the terrorists in Syria and Iraq. Great strategy. Fighters are from 80 countries. The war on terror might be the greatest disaster in US history.

1,000 foreign fighters head to Syria each month to join ISIS, undeterred by air strikes.

Government employees made $20 billion in secret purchases in recent months.
"The purchases, known among federal employees as “micropurchases,” are made by some of the thousands of agency employees who are issued taxpayer-funded purchase cards. The purchases, in most cases, remain confidential and are not publicly disclosed by the agencies. A sampling of those purchases, obtained by the I-Team via the Freedom of Information Act, reveals at least one agency used those cards to buy $30,000 in Starbucks Coffee drinks and products in one year without having to disclose or detail the purchases to the public.
A series of other recent purchases, reviewed by internal government auditors, include wasteful and inappropriate purchases by government employees -- including a gym membership and JC Penney clothing -- that were not detected or stopped until after the purchase was completed."

Federal Reserve

Here's how the Fed's money-printing spree worked out for you.
"The Federal Reserve has finally ended its quantitative easing programs. Since the financial crisis of 2008, the Fed has pursued what seemed like an endless policy of asset purchases. As recently as September 2008 the monetary base in the US was just a hair over $800 bn. Today this figure is just shy of $4.2 trillion, for a total increase of 425%."
Guess what that means for your dollars.
"For its part Janet Yellen and her gang of Fed economists are probably pretty pleased with themselves. Unemployment is down, headline inflation remains muted, and the word on Wall Street is that a worse crisis has been averted. The stock market is at record highs, and banks (and bankers) are back to their pre-crisis eminence."
In other words, the fat cats are rolling the Fed's newly printed dough.
"One of the true marks of a great economist is an ability to see past the obvious outcomes and into the veiled results of policies. Friedrich Bastiat’s great essay on “that which is seen, and that which is not seen” provides a cautionary parable that disastrous analyses result when people don’t bother looking further than the immediate results of an action.
Nowhere is this lesson more instructive than with the Fed’s QE policies of the past 6 years."

Government claims economy grew at 3.5 percent clip in Q3. What a crock. Analysis.
"Gross Domestic Product has been reported to be an unexpectedly high 3.5% in the third quarter (on an annual basis). However the growth was led by a “surprisingly” high increase in defense spending and a reduction in the trade deficit (which accounts for 2% of the 3.5%). The last time defense spending had a surprising increase was the third quarter of 2012 (also a quarter leading up to an election) there was a sharp fall off in defense spending the next quarter. The GDP deflator was 1.3% for the quarter on an annual basis."
Phony. Phony. The trade deficit reduction was probably weapons sales to the Saudis.

Pentagon studies how to treat troops with Ebola because they're sending into an Ebola hotspot without hazmat suits. What could go wrong?

Thousands of troops in addition to what has been reported are being sent to Africa to get infected with Ebola.
"The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola.The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola.
Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.
Stories that don’t make sense and that are not explained naturally arouse suspicions, such as: Are US soldiers being used to test ebola vaccines and cures, or more darkly are they being used to bring more ebola back to the US?"
Rhetorical questions all. These troops will survive because they'll well fed, then the government can use their blood to produce antibodies for others.

That’s the question author Peter Dale Scott examines in his forthcoming book “The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil and the Attack on U.S. Democracy,” due out on Nov. 12. Scott, a professor emeritus of English at Berkeley and former Canadian diplomat, is considered the father of “deep politics”—the study of hidden permanent institutions and interests whose influence on the political realm transcends the elected."
Don't forget Google.
"But a much larger role for the private sector has come with the increased outsourcing of the government’s intelligence budget.

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  Yes. They’ve got one in Monrovia [the capital of Ebola-stricken Liberia] … one in Kenema, Sierra Leone [the third largest city in the Ebola-hotzone nation], which was shut down this summer because the government there believed that it was the Tulane vaccines which had set this whole thing off.
And then they have another one in Guinea, where the first case [of Ebola] was reported.

CDC has a long history of doing biowarfare work. I have them doing biowarfare work for the Pentagon in Sierra Leone as early 1988."
That's not documentation.
"WASHINGTON’S BLOG:   And how do you know that? Have you seen official documents?

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  An official government document: the Biological Defense Research Program, May 1988.  I analyzed it in my book, Biowarfare and Terrorism.
It’s clear that [the U.S. bioweapons researchers] were using Liberia to try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention.  And CDC – for years – has been up to its eyeballs in biowarfare work.
They always try to justify the development of offensive biological weapons by claiming it’s being done for “defensive” purposes.  That’s just a lie … and it’s always been a lie.
It’s been the case on Ebola and just about every other biowarfare agent you can think of."
That's why we hear about doctors making deadly diseases deadlier.
"WASHINGTON’S BLOG:  And Obama recently said – as quoted in the New York Times article – that he’s “curtailing” this type of defensive research, or putting it on hold.
Do you believe him?

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  That’s the smoking gun, right there. Read that article [the New York Times article quoted above, which notes "a sudden change of heart by the Obama administration" about labs creating ever-deadlier versions of germs which are already lethal]. 
The reason they’ve stopped it is to cover themselves, I think, because they know that this type of work was behind the outbreak of the [Ebola] pandemic in West Africa.
But that’s an admission right there, de facto."
Sounds like it.
"Dr. Boyle made it clear that he is not suggesting – as some others are – that Ebola was intentionally released into the African population. He says he has seen no evidence of intentional release.  He’s speaking about an accidental release of germs from a biowarfare research lab.
He’s convinced, in fact, that this Ebola epidemic in Africa started with the release from a U.S. bioweapons lab in West Africa.   One of the reasons for his conviction that the outbreak started with the release from a bioweapon lab is that this Ebola strain seems to be much worse than those previously seen in the wild."
Maybe someday we'll find out for sure.

US refused to promise it wouldn't weaponize Ebola.
"The United States has withheld assurances from Germany that the Ebola virus – among other related diseases – would not be weaponized in the event of Germany exporting it to the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases."
The evidence keeps piling up.

The Washington Post wants us to think the Russians are responsible. Any chance to demonize the Russians.

Police State

Police developing new chemical weapons. I guess tear gas wasn't good enough.

The overwhelming corruption of our misnamed justice system.

Canadian government uses shooting to become more tyrannical.
"As many comments predicted, the national government has seized this as an opportunity to roll out considerable new regressive legislation, including measures designed to* increase data access for domestic intelligence services, institute a new form of extra-judicial detention, and, perhaps most troubling, criminalize some forms of religious and political speech online."
Never let a crisis go to waste.

Of course Facebook is a gift to intelligence agencies. That's why it was funded by the CIA.

Federal Reserve

If QE really comes to an end, stock market bears do need to watch out, but I'm not sure it will end.
"The Federal Reserve’s latest asset purchase program, QE3, is coming to an end. What was once an $85 billion a month program, one in which at its peak had been goosing the financial markets and economy at an annual rate of $1.0 trillion – and over its 27 month life will have pumped $1.7 trillion of money into the economy – is going to zero. Given the outsized impact QE has had on the growth of U.S. money supply and thus the U.S. economy, we say investors take note, especially those furthest out on the risk curve, because what was once your primary tailwind could soon become your greatest headwind, maybe even a gale force."
But is it really going to end?
"Now you know why we call this current monetary cycle the Bernanke Risk-On Boom – Bust-to-Be! Unlike in past monetary cycles where money was largely injected into the real economy via bank asset purchases and loans, this inflation cycle is all about huge swathes of money being injected directly into the financial markets via Federal Reserve’s QE asset purchase programs. The banking system, at least to this point, has had a minor role." 
But will Yellen really end it? So Greenspan created the boom then quit, leaving Bernanke to deal with the bust. The Bernanke ignited the next boom then quit, leaving Yellen to deal with the bust. Talk about passing the buck.

The Fed absolutely manipulates the stock market.
"“They are definitely in the market-manipulation business, and nothing has changed,” said James Bianco, president of Bianco Research LLC in Chicago and a longtime student, and critic, of the Fed.
Called the “Greenspan/Bernanke put,” the Fed’s willingness to jump in when stocks fall dates back a quarter-century.
“The put option is back. If the market sells off enough, they will give us QE4,” Bianco told me."
At some point, printing money won't work, but I Yellen will probably keep printing until that point is reached.

Global Warming and Energy

Global warming fraud shows not only his communist motives but his hatred of his fellow men too.
"McPherson has come up with a novel twist on this one. Even though humanity is totally doomed, that doesn’t mean we can now just drop the issue and get back to increasing our standards of living as fast as possible in our last remaining years. Nope, we apparently have a responsibility to destroy ourselves to that other animals can have the planet instead. The method of suicide? We must “terminate industrial civilization.”"
This is the ideological animating force behind the great global warming fraud. Of course the real power behind it comes from greed.

Award-winning graphic novel portrays environmentalist mall shooting terrorist as a hero.

The founder of the Weather Channel destroys CAGW theory.
"There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future. Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant “greenhouse” gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed. There has been no warming over 18 years. William Happer, Ph.D., Princeton University, Richard Lindzen, Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Willie Soon, Ph.D., Harvard Smithsonian Observatory, John Christy, Ph.D., University of Alabama and 9,000 other Ph.D. scientists all agree with my opening two sentences."
Poor grammar, but accurate.

El Nino less likely.

Britain to cut subsidies for solar plants to protect farmland.

World food production at record levels.

War on Drugs

The phony war on drugs doesn't work in Afghanistan either.
"This is the unimpeachable rule of the war on drugs: Money goes in, and somehow the worst people benefit, and the drug trade soldiers on and on."
That's for sure.
"According to Stars and Stripes, when U.S. and NATO troops exit the country in a few months, they will leave behind 500,000 acres of poppies. This is a 36 percent increase since 2013. The amount of poppies has in fact been increasing since the U.S. invasion 13 years ago this month."
That's by design. The US needs narco-dollars.


Because so much stolen money is at stake, nearly $4 billion is being spent on midterm elections. The only way to get the money out of politics is to take the money and power away from government.

Michelle Obama flubs second Dem's bio on campaign trail.

Bullying group slams Monica Lewinsky.
""I find it a bit insulting to the people who have been cyber bullied to have Monica Lewinsky step out and say she's the poster-child for cyber bullying," said Aftab, whose nonprofit is organized in 76 countries and began in 1995.
Aftab said that Lewinsky's baggage would take attention away from the main issue.
"Look at her interviews — it's all about Monica," Aftab said. "She's setting us back years. She doesn't know what she's talking about."
Aftab argued that Lewinsky wasn't cyber bullied after her affair with Clinton was exposed by the Drudge Report, a conservative website, because she became "a public figure and it was newsworthy.""
Sanity, but will it win out over greed?

Monica and Clintons want to rewrite history.

As I said, the Saudi were dumping oil to help Obama in the elections. With the election nearly here, they just cut production so prices will be rising soon.

Tax and Spend

Why is the USDA spending money stolen from taxpayers on indoor plumbing for an Alaskan, or any other, village?

The Pentagon is unauditable.
"Year after year, the nonpartisanGovernment Accountability Office (GAO) declares the Pentagon budget to be un-auditable. In 2013, for example, the GAO found that the Pentagon consistently fails to control its costs, measure its performance, or prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse."
Why not?


ISIS supposedly makes $1 million a month in black market oil sales. US threatens sanctions against buyers.

US building another base in Okinawa against the wishes of locals.

Norwegians developing robot missiles that autonomously identifies targets. I wonder if they codenamed it Skynet.


The pretense of knowledge in computing.
"Michael I. Jordan skewers a bunch of sacred cows, basically saying that: The overeager adoption of big data is likely to result in catastrophes of analysis comparable to a national epidemic of collapsing bridges. Hardware designers creating chips based on the human brain are engaged in a faith-based undertaking likely to prove a fool's errand; and despite recent claims to the contrary, we are no further along with computer vision than we were with physics when Isaac Newton sat under his apple tree."
I completely agree.

Hooray for Walmart for opening medical clinics.

In article about Walmart clinics, Ilana Mercer is too right.
"The marketplace brings plenty; the state does the opposite. Yet not a day goes by when consumers, ignorant of the forces that feed, clothe, cure, employ, entertain them and innovate for them, don’t demand that those who’ve done nothing of the kind – the McCains, Obamas, Bushes, Clintons, Keith Alexanders, Lois Lerners, Eric Holders of the world – proceed with force against those who do nothing but."
So true.
