Special Treatment Gave John Kerry’s Daughter $9 Million In Gov’t Contracts

Peace Corps officials directed Department of State funds to a nonprofit run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter by disqualifying other potential applicants through half-hearted analysis. “We’ll never know, but this market research seems like an effort to steer this deal to Kerry’s group, which might not have been in the government’s best interest,” Project On Government Oversight (POGO) General Counsel Scott Amey told The Daily Caller News Foundation. POGO is a nonprofit watchdog that has extensively investigated government contracts among other oversight issues.

UK government proposes issuing Britons with unique porn-viewing ID numbers

The UK government says it wants to stop people under 18 from looking at pornography, and so it's going to make all the porn sites operating in Britain collect some kind of age-verification in order to make this happen, on pain of being blocked by the UK's Great Firewall. This amounts to a giant database of the nation's porn-consumption habits, ripe for leaking and abuse. To make things worse, the obvious way to do this is by tying age-verification in with some payment method, which will produce a list of the nation's porn-consumption habits, which you can sort by income.

Appeals Court Affirms NSA Surveillance Can Be Used To Investigate Domestic Criminal Suspects

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals confirms what's already known about the NSA's domestic surveillance: it's not just for terrorism. The NSA collections -- done in the FBI's name -- are supposed to only gather info related to international terrorism. But that requirement has been phased out. The NSA "tips" a certain amount of data to the FBI for its own use and it has been shown in the past to do the same for the DEA, which it then instructs to obscure the origin of its info.

Billionaire Hillary Clinton Backer Wants a New Tax That Funnels Middle Class Money to Wall Street

“I find the whole thing astonishing and what’s remarkable is the amount of anger whether it’s on the Republican side or the Democratic side,” the Wall Street mogul said at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “Bernie Sanders, to me, is almost more stunning than some of what’s going on in the Republican side. How is that happening, why is that happening?” – From January’s post: Billionaire CEO of Blackstone Trolls the American Public – He Doesn’t Get Why People Are Angry

The Revolution Devours Its Own: Prosecutor Who Led Charge Against Brazil's Rouseff Was Just Arrested

Every "revolution" has it: the moment when the sequence of events unleashed by the initial decision ultimately boomerangs and takes down the very people who started the revolution. In Brazil, that would be the powerful former speaker of Brazil's lower house, Eduardo Cunha, who spearheaded the ouster of President Dilma Rousseff, and who almost singlehandedly ushered in Michel Temer into the presidential office. Alas, for Cunha the "game of thrones" now appears to be over after he himself was arrested early on Wednesday as part of a sprawling graft probe involving state oil giant Petrobras. As a reminder, Cunha initiated impeachment proceedings against Rousseff in December when he was speaker of the Chamber of Deputies. That led to a Senate vote to remove her from office in August.

CNN "Loses" Satellite Feed Just As Republican Congressman Mentions WikiLeaks

In yet another coincidentally-timed "technical glitch" at CNN, Republican Congressman Chris Collins was cut off within seconds of mentioning "WikiLeaks." Per InfoWars, Collins joined a conversation with CNN's Chris Cuomo and immediately went on the attack against Hillary. But as soon as he utters the word "WikiLeaks" his feed is suddenly "lost."

Russia Is Deploying The Largest Naval Force Since The Cold War For Syria: NATO Diplomat

Just moments ago we reported that in the latest escalation involving Syria, the Russian aircraft carrier Kuznetsov was now sailing past Norway on its way to Syria, where it is expected to arrive in just under 2 weeks. As part of the carrier naval group, Russia also deployed an escort of seven other Russian ships, which we dubbed the "most powerful Russian naval task force to sail in northern Europe since 2014" according to Russia's Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily reports.

CNN Tells Viewers It's Illegal For Them To Read Wikileaks Document Dumps. CNN Is Wrong

I cut the cord years ago, so the only time I stumble into cable "news" coverage is usually at the gym or airport. And time and time again I'm struck by how the empty prattle is more in line with dystopian satire than anything resembling actual news reporting or intellectual analysis. Even when these channels feature live breaking news stories, you'd be hard pressed to find a reporter willing to call up a source and confirm details of what's happening, resulting in something that's more akin to lobotomized speculation than the polished product of multi-billion-dollar media empires.

A study appearing this week from researchers based at the University of Kansas suggests the United States tends to carry out secret military operations against other democratic countries of the world — but to conduct open war against non-democracies. The findings appear in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.

Cops Monitoring Social Media Is Much More Than Just Collecting Tweets

It’s not just your friends following you on Facebook or Twitter. The cops are, too. Law enforcement agencies around the world have used social media monitoring software to keep tabs on populations en masse, sweeping up their posts and tweets, giving police a bird’s-eye view of what, say, Twitter users are broadcasting in a specific area, or about a particular topic. Tweeting from an Olympic stadium? Sharing a post with a hashtag supporting Black Lives Matter? Police may be watching that, in real time.

What Happens When the Electricity Is Off for Three Days?

One of the hidden realities of modern life is its fragility. For example, few people are aware of the precariousness of the supply chain that refills gasoline/petrol stations around the world every few days. A new book, When Trucks Stop Running: Energy and the Future of Transportation explores the fragilities of our truck-dependent supply chains. Longtime correspondent Bart D. (Australia) recently experienced a multi-day regional loss of electricity. His first-person observations help us understand what breakdowns in energy are like on the ground.

ECB Wants To Curb Bitcoin Use Over Fears It May “Lose Control Over Money Supply”

The first time the ECB officially warned about the dangers of virtual currencies in general, and in particular, bitcoin – what was then a mostly unknown currency trading in the single digits (in USD terms) – was in November 2012 when in a report called “Virtual Currency Schemes” it warned that “in an extreme case, virtual currencies could have a substitution effect on central bank money if they become widely accepted.

PUTIN’S WARNING – Now Russia tells the US ‘if you want a war you will get one EVERYWHERE’

Moscow military experts have said Vladimir Putin will not back down amid escalating tensions between the global superpowers, blasting the White House’s “aggressiveness”. But Kremlin military chief Lt Gen Yevgeny Buzhinsky described the provocative action as “full-scale confrontation”. The retired general added: “Of course there is a reaction. As far as Russia sees it, as Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts. If you want a confrontation, you’ll get one.”

When the photos were discovered by the girls mother she reported the situation to police, who then treated the case as if it were a sex crime.

Ecuador Admits They Silenced Assange Because Clinton Leaks Were ‘Interfering’ With US Election

Julian Assange abruptly had his tether to the outside world purposely cut off Monday, when — as Wikileaks announced on Twitter — his “internet connection was intentionally severed by a state party.” “We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches.” Wikileaks is, of course, referring to the ongoing massive dump of documents heisted from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s email account — proving Assange’s intent to deliver transparency in his October Surprise in the remaining days before Americans vote in one of the most contentious presidential elections in U.S. history.

Bankster Mapped Out Virtually the Entire Obama Cabinet A Month Before Obama's 2008 Victory

The most important revelation in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta’s emails has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The messages go all the way back to 2008, when Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. And a month before the election, the key staffing for that future administration was almost entirely in place, revealing that some of the most crucial decisions an administration can make occur well before a vote has been cast.

Washington’s Global Economic Wars

During most of the past two decades Washington has aggressively launched military and economic wars against at least nine countries, either directly or through its military aid to regional allies and proxies. US air and ground troops have bombed or invaded Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon. More recently Washington has escalated its global economic war against major economic rivals as well as against weaker countries. The US no longer confines its aggressive impulses to peripheral economic countries in the Middle East, Latin America and Southern Asia: It has declared trade wars against world powers in Asia, Eastern and Central Europe and the Gulf states.
