Leaked Docs Reveal TTIP Trade Deal In Jeopardy As "Irreconcilable Differences" Emerge

Several weeks ago we learned that not all is well in the ongoing negotiations to impose Obama's landmark Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement, also known as the TTIP, when unexpectedly Europe threatened to impose visas on Americans and Canadians. As we commented at the time, this latest tension may have been driven "by the fact that the United States hasn’t yet lifted visa requirements for some EU member countries such as Romania, Bulgaria, and Poland. But more likely, this is just a bit of gamesmanship on the part of the EU. The US and European Union are in ongoing negotiation regarding the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, and there appear to be some sticking points that the two sides can’t quite come to an agreement on – namely labor, environmental, and regulatory standards."

WATCH: Germans Shut Down Leftist Minister's Pro-Migrant Speech & Chase Him Down In The Streets

Using the same tactics as the left who destroyed their country, East Germans in Zwickau blew whistles and hurled boos and insults at Federal Justice Minister Heiko Maas to shut down his "pro-refugee" speech, then chased him down in the streets as he fled to his Mercedes. Note, Heiko Maas is the same Germanophobe who called last month for "sexy" advertisements to be banned in an attempt to stop the "refugees" he loves so much from raping German girls.

Obama Yucks It Up at his final Washington correspondents' dinner

In his final address at the White House correspondents' dinner Obama lived up to his reputation as a top-notch jokester, making cracks about Republican front-runner Donald Trump and Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. "You know I’m gonna talk about Trump!" Obama told the crow of glitzy guests at the black-tie event that brought together journalists, media moguls, Capitol Hill power brokers and Hollywood stars. “Although I'm a little hurt that he is not here tonight. We had so much fun the last time," Obama said referring to the same event in 2011, during which Trump was present.

Australia to spend over $11mn to eradicate carps by releasing herpes virus into rivers

Australia will spend more than US$11 million in a bid to exterminate European carp by releasing a virulent strain of herpes into the country’s largest waterway. As much as 15 million Australian dollars will be spent on funding the clearing of the Murray-Darling Basin from the country’s worst freshwater feral pest. This will be included into Tuesday’s federal budget, Australian authorities said on Sunday. Interestingly enough, the war on fish is to be waged by an unusual means – the water will be contaminated with a special type of herpes, known as koi herpes.

ADL Asks Trump to Dump ‘America First’ Slogan Reminiscent of WWII Anti-Semitism

The Anti-Defamation League called on Donald Trump to abjure the term “America First,” noting its unsavory World War II-era association with anti-Semitism. “The undercurrents of anti-Semitism and bigotry that characterized the America First movement – including the assumption that Jews who opposed the movement had their own agenda and were not acting in America’s best interest – is fortunately not a major concern today,” the ADL said in an April 28 statement.

Can You Say ‘Rubber Stamp?’ FBI And NSA Requests Never Denied By Secret Court

You likely don’t know much about the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Though it keeps a low profile, this is the court the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency go to when they want permission to put someone under surveillance. And they don’t get turned down, according to Reuters, citing a Justice Department memo. In 2015 the court received and approved 1,457 requests from the FBI and NSA. There were a bit fewer requests in 2014, but all of those were approved as well.

Goldman Sachs Rep Discusses Militarizing the Moon

The idea of colonizing Earth’s moon and creating a whole world from scratch has always been a notion of science-fiction, until nowNBC reports.

The CIA Illegally Let the Wrong People Do Intelligence Work, Declassified Report Finds

The CIA violated federal laws and its own internal regulations by hiring independent contractors for a wide variety of intelligence and national security-related work that was supposed to be performed by government employees, according to a CIA Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit report obtained by VICE News in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The report said the CIA "relies heavily on independent contractors to accomplish important facets of its mission," particularly at the National Clandestine Service, the covert arm of the agency responsible for clandestine operations around the world. The report, dated June 22, 2012 but only declassified last month, raised numerous red flags about the CIA's use of independent contractors throughout all divisions within the agency, and for work performed work in areas that included covert operations and protective security services overseas.

As Obama Preps To Send Troops Into Syria The US Gov’t Is Already Planning Their Next Major Coup

A nonviolent coup to depose a democratically-elected president and install some of the most corrupt politicians — who, not coincidentally happen to be favored by the U.S. political establishment — is currently underway in Brazil. As the public’s attention zeroes on the readying of troops for deployment to Syria, the U.S. government has been able to quietly lend its approval to the crooked and baseless move to oust Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. Indeed, though the controversy over quintupling U.S. ground troops in Syria — despite vows by the Obama administration at least 16 times there would be ‘no boots on the ground’ — constitutes a valid and pertinent debate, it can’t be allowed to obfuscate what’s taking place in Brazil. To understand the importance of the ongoing tumult, you need only look at who matters to both the Brazilian and U.S. political elite — and it clearly isn’t the 54 million people who re-elected Brazil’s first female president just 18 months ago.

No Criminal Punishment for U.S. Military Personnel in Afghan Hospital Bombing

A U.S. aerial gunship attack on a hospital in Afghanistan that killed 42 people occurred because of human errors, process mistakes and equipment failures, and none of the aircrew or U.S. ground troops knew the target was a hospital, a top U.S. general said Friday. “This was an extreme situation” complicated by combat fatigue among U.S. special operations forces, Gen. Joseph Votel told a Pentagon news conference. Votel headed U.S. Special Operations Command at the time of the tragic attack last fall. In March he took over U.S. Central Command, which oversees military operations in Afghanistan.

Obama Presses ‘Smart Guns,’ Announces Gun Control Summit

We’ve jumpstarted the development of smart gun technology. Today, many gun injuries and deaths are the result of legal guns that were stolen, misused, or discharged accidentally. As long as we’ve got the technology to prevent a criminal from stealing and using your smartphone, then we should be able to prevent the wrong person from pulling a trigger on a gun. So, my Administration released a plan today to expedite the development of smart gun technology, including by identifying the requirements that smart guns would have to meet in order for law enforcement to purchase and use them effectively and keep themselves and the public safer in the process.

Former Tor developer created malware for the FBI to hack Tor users

Matt Edman is a cybersecurity expert who worked as a part-time employee at Tor Project, the nonprofit that builds Tor software and maintains the network, almost a decade ago. Since then, he's developed potent malware used by law enforcement to unmask Tor users. It's been wielded in multiple investigations by federal law-enforcement and U.S. intelligence agencies in several high-profile cases. “It has come to our attention that Matt Edman, who worked with the Tor Project until 2009, subsequently was employed by a defense contractor working for the FBI to develop anti-Tor malware,” the Tor Project confirmed in a statement after being contacted by the Daily Dot.
