Still gagging on fatty German Sausage

I'm coming to steal your democracy

Kim Dotcom better get used to wearing orange…it’s the new black after all

Kim Dotcom’s publicist, note-taker and sometime reporter David ‘tainted’ Fisher is today showing that he is still fond of fatty German sausage.

He has taken the unusual step of promoting affidavit evidence ahead of Kim Dotcom’s extradition trial next week. It seems a newspaper is still getting the inside running from the lawyers and attempting to manipulate court processes by trying this in the media rather than a court room.

One of the world’s leading experts on copyright has reviewed the Kim Dotcom case and says there is no basis for extradition.

Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig has weighed into the Megaupload prosecution with a legal opinion which condemns the prosecution case against the filesharing website.

In an opinion released by Dotcom’s lawyers, Professor Lessig said the allegations and evidence made public by the US Department of Justice “do not meet the requirements necessary to support a prima facie case that would be recognised by United States federal law”

Professor Lessig is internationally regarded as an expert in copyright and fair use. He co-founded the nonprofit Creative Commons and has written widely in articles and books on copyright, law and the internet age. The US-based Electronic Freedom Foundation said he had “played a pivotal role in shaping the debate about copyright in the digital age”.   Read more »

It’s official, Obama is the world’s best gun salesman

Obama and his proposed gun bans are responsible for him selling more guns than any other person in the world.

Data released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation suggest that gun sales in the U.S. rose sharply in August in the wake of renewed calls for stricter gun control.

The FBI processed 1.7 million NICS background checks on gun buyers at federally licensed dealers, according to this story from nydailynews.com. That’s the highest number of checks in the month of August since NICS was created in 1998, according to the NY Daily News. Not only that, but June 2015 (1.5 million) and July 2015 (1.6 million) also broke respective monthly NICS check records.

It’s worth noting that the 1.7 million figure for August, or any of the monthly NICS check numbers, don’t necessarily correlate to gun sales, as it does not indicate how many checks resulted in rejections, or the fact that a person can buy multiple firearms during one transaction.

“Whenever there is a call for gun control, sales increase,” Larry Keane, general counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, told USA Today. “Unfortunately, this is a pattern that repeats itself.”

The surge in NICS checks isn’t as intense as the one that followed the Newtown, Connecticut shooting in 2012, but is more comparable to the period just before the 1994 adoption of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2014.    Read more »

Obama continues to be the greatest gun salesman the world has ever seen

The more people try and ban guns the more people want to buy them.

Since becoming president Barack Obama has seen the largest resurgence in the gun industry in living history. He quite literally is the world’s greatest gun salesman.

Renewed calls for more restrictive gun laws, following a succession of fatal shootings in the United States, immediately appear to be generating a boost for the gun industry.

Newly released August records show that the FBI posted 1.7 million background checks required of gun purchasers at federally licensed dealers, the highest number recorded in any August since gun checks began in 1998. The numbers follow new monthly highs for June (1.5 million) and July (1.6 million), a period which spans a series of deadly gun attacks — from Charleston to Roanoke — and proposals for additional firearm legislation.

While the FBI does not track actual gun sales, as multiple firearms can be included in a transaction by a single buyer, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s numbers are an indicator of a market upswing in the face of growing anxiety about access to guns.

“Whenever there is a call for gun control, sales increase,” said Larry Keane, general counsel for the firearm industry trade association National Shooting Sports Foundation. “Unfortunately, this is a pattern that repeats itself.”

Hillary Clinton’s email debacle gets worse – 57 more classified emails found


Hillary Clinton has repeatedly claimed she never handled any classified emails on her private server, and since she made that claim there has been the slow release of classified emails found on her server.

Truth Revolt reports:

In a review of the batch of emails from Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private server released Monday, Reuters determined that another 57 of them were “classified from the start.” That makes at least 87 emails so far that Reuters’ sources have concluded were transmitted in violation of federal security laws.

As TruthRevolt reported, Reuters revealed in August that an initial batch of emails from Clinton’s server contained at least 30 email threads—17 originating from Clinton herself—that have been designated by the State Department as containing “information the U.S. government and the department’s own regulations automatically deems classified from the get-go — regardless of whether it is already marked that way or not.”

Reuters analysis of the newly released Clintons emails found that 57 more emails were likewise marked with classification code 1.4(B), which means they contain information “shared in confidence by foreign government officials,” which must be “classified from the start, and handled through secure, government-controlled channels.”

Reuters emphasizes how seriously such intrinsically classified information is considered, highlighting the State Department’s own regulations, which describe it as the “most important category of national security information” the department’s officials encounter.

“If the State Department’s markings are correct,” says Reuters, “it appears that Clinton and her senior staff routinely did not follow the regulations in the department’s Foreign Affairs Manual, which tells employees they “must” safeguard foreign government information by treating it as classified.”

A Striptease with Clothes On

Performer ‘Sings and Gyrates… and Gets Paid For it Too!

 Reports from this La Crosse performance cause the editor of the local newspaper to complain to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover that from what he has heard Elvis’ act consists of ‘sexual gratification on stage’. (The letter is below)

-: In Fort Worth 16-year-olds have carved his name into their forearms with clasp knives (one did it four times), (Photo newspaper) and an older woman was heard to plead with him: ‘I’ve got my husband’s Cadillac outside. Come with me?’

-: In Oklahoma City he was safely whisked away in a police car after his show, but a reporter who had interviewed him was mobbed by the stage-door Jennies. ‘Touch him’, yelled one. ‘Maybe he’s touched Elvis!’

There’s a new age for the rage, He is Elvis Aaron Presley, a drape-suited, tight-trousered young man of 21, and the sight and sound of him drive teenage girls wild. All through the South and West, Elvis is packing theatres’, fighting off shrieking admirers, disturbing parents, puckering the brows of psychologists, and filling letters-to-the-editor columns with cries of alarm and, from adolescents, counter-cries of adulation. He vibrated his hips so much, and the customers squealed so insistently at the vibrations, it was impossible to hear him sing. None of the smitten seemed to care.

This cat Presley is neat, well gassed and has the heart.

Is Clinton’s campaign in trouble?

It would appear that Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in terrible trouble with still more revelations about her illegal email server surfacing.

The FBI is trying to determine who at the State Department ultimately sent secure emails to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on her unsecured, secret, private network – this according to The New York Times.

According to the paper, classified emails were circulated on unsecured emails between 2009 and 2011 and some of those emails were forwarded to Clinton’s home server.

While some of the emails may not have been marked classified, others were. Earlier this week the inspector general of the nation’s intelligence agencies, I. Charles McCullough III, said some top secret messages were sent to Clinton:    Read more »

FBI says they foiled planned July 4 attacks

The head of the FBI has announced that they foiled several Islamic terror attacks on the US that were timed for July 4.

U.S. officials stopped Islamic extremist-inspired attempts to kill Americans around the July 4 holiday, FBI Director James Comey said on Thursday.

Over the past four weeks, more than 10 people inspired by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have been arrested by U.S. authorities, Comey told multiple news outlets, some of which were focused on the Independence Day holiday.

“I do believe we disrupted efforts to kill people in connection to the Fourth,” Comey said, according to CBS.

“Some of them were focused on the Fourth of July, and that’s as specific as I can get,” he added, according to NBC.    Read more »

Wogball president quits in disgrace just days after being re-elected

The world president of Wogball has finally quit as the corruption scandal engulfing the sport escalates.

The FBI and US prosecutors are investigating outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter in their corruption case against world football’s governing body.

US ABC News have reported the major development, citing sources familiar with the case. The news comes hours after Blatter stunned the football world announcing his resignation in Zurich.

Blatter’s unexpected resignation was met with mixed reaction with football leaders expressing relief, but also raising questions over the timing of the move – just four days after his re-election.

The 79-year-old announced the decision in Zurich on Tuesday (NZT Wednesday), in the face of a corruption investigation that has plunged football’s governing body into the worst crisis in its history.

The outgoing president said an election to choose his successor for the deeply troubled organisation would be held as soon as possible. A Fifa official said that could happen any time from December this year to March of next year.

“Fifa needs profound restructuring,” Blatter said.    Read more »

Let me guess…Lone wolves?

Islamic terrorists have attacked an art exhibition and been shot and killed in the process.

No doubt these Islamic gunmen will be described as lone wolf attackers…and the art exhibition organisers will be blamed for the attack.

[T]wo men were shot and killed outside a provocative contest for cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.

The event took place at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland.

The two suspects drove up and opened fire near the center hitting a Garland ISD officer. Garland Police shot and killed the two men.

Multiple SWAT teams and an FBI bomb squad were searching the suspects’ vehicle for bombs.

“Because of the situation and what was going on today and the history of what we’ve been told has happened at other events like this, we’re considering their car as possibly having a bomb,” said Garland police officer Joe Harn.
