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.”

CLAIM: U.S. Paid $2 Billion For Turkey Coup

According to the Yeni Safek daily, retired US Army General John F. Campbell was “one of the top figures who organized and managed the soldiers behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey”.

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.

Florida Man Admits Disguising Foreign Cash to Obama Campaign

2 Hostage Takers Killed After Slitting Priest's Throat In Assault On French Church

Two men stormed a northern French church, killing a priest and seriously wounding another person, before they were shot dead by police, in what authorities said they are treating as a terrorist attack. The men took five hostages, including the priest, in the church in the small town of Saint Etienne du Rouvray in Normandy. The priest was later found with his throat cut, police said. Police surrounded the church and shot the two men as they exited the building, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. France’s President François Hollande and Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve are on their way to the town, said government officials. The assault is being treated as a terror attack by investigators, Paris prosecutors said in a statement. A Vatican spokesman said that Pope Francis shares the “pain and horror” of the attack, which he called a “barbarous” act in a sacred place.

The shootings of police officers in Baton Rouge and Dallas have prompted the New York Police Department (NYPD) to buy $7.5 million worth of military-grade protection equipment for on-duty officers. Police Commissioner William Bratton told a news conference on Monday that the NYPD has purchased 20,000 military helmets, 6,000 military heavy duty bullet-proof vests, trauma kits, and ballistic doors and windows for patrol cars, Reuters reported.

The U.S. Blew $1.4 Billion on Abstinence Education in Africa

That is the amount of money the U.S. spent over a 10-year period from 2004 through 2013 promoting abstinence before marriage as a way of preventing HIV in 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Unfortunately, according to the most comprehensive independent study conducted to date of the effort, the money was more or less wasted. A rigorous comparison of national data from countries that received abstinence funding under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with those that got none of the funding showed no difference in the age of first sexual experience or in the number of sexual partners or teenage pregnancies—all aspects of behaviors that have been linked to a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV.

“Jaws” ain’t over till the Sheriff meets the Shark

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was finally “persuaded” not to step onto the podium in Philadelphia of the Democratic Convention that was meeting to ratify the election outcome that she helped engineer. If this were a Hollywood movie, producers would be waving scripts in the air while screaming, “Where’s the third act? They took out the third act!”
