Everyone on the planet knows what happened. Most know why. It isn’t the terrorists that did this, they were only the end result, but it was the widely suicidal Western culture that is being led by arguably insane leaders.
They are insane, because as a group, (exemplified by Obama) they refuse and deny that there is a current worldwide clash of civilizations. And because of that denial, they continue on the same murderous path. Not THEIR murder of course- but your murder.
If it were theirs, reality would be pounding on the door much harder than it is now. But they are safe, surrounded by their Praetorian guards, loved by their sycophant supporters, all of whom wish only to be the last one surviving when things get ugly. It is simply history repeating itself over and over and over.
But this is our history. The one we live in, our kids live in, our grandchildren live in. So it matters to us. Frankly, like many, I’ve had enough.
Enough of a President lecturing me on my bias when I say don’t bring fighting aged men from the Middle East, who worship a religion that demands they either kill me, enslave me, or convert me. That’s just dumb. There is no “religion of peace” and if the situation were reversed and Christians were killing Muslims and demanding conversion, you can bet nobody in the Middle East would let me live there. Our leaders are made bag of hammers stupid by Political Correctness!
I’ve had enough of a group of people on a continent across the Atlantic ocean telling me that I’m wrong on this whole clash of civilizations thing, when they are being killed- en masse- because of that very reason. By the way, there are less people telling me that now than there were Thursday. Same with the “you don’t need guns” crowd. They are either dead, or smarter, this week.
I am really tired of people like Ben Rhoades, who gets on television and lies so badly his voice squeaks. Seriously. “Oh we have a robust vetting process!” He reminds me of this guy.
But mostly, I am just tired of watching unqualified people try to run things, half the time with only a half-hearted effort.
Today, “Winter Soldier” Kerry felt an empathetic understanding for those terrorists who shot up the cartoonists. They did insult Mohammad after all, so killing them made sense.
Seriously, you can’t make it up.
Well I’m insulted, so if I get to bomb Muslims in the Middle East until I run out of jet fuel and ordinance, is that okay too?
Jeezz… It is getting to the point, with Obama’s last year looming like a plague of locusts on the horizon, that I just can’t wait to get rid of these people for at least four years and hopefully longer.
Enough. We have all had enough.
This guy lectures us? He fell off his bike for the love of God!
What happens when you challenge a group of young blacks in Baltimore? You get lured and ambushed and stomped on. Again, something Obama refuses to address.
A 71-year-old retired Baltimore police officer is in critical condition at Shock Trauma after a group of teen thugs viciously attacked him Saturday after he confronted the teens for messing with his truck while parked outside a bar he was attending.
The bar’s owner told WBAL the bar’s video surveillance camera caught the attack and shows one of the attackers jumping up “three feet high” and stomping on the elderly man’s head.
“”He had no regard for the man’s life,” the bar’s owner said of Howard. “None of them did.
“The bar’s owner said surveillance footage of the attack on the victim was so violent that he had a hard time watching it.
“”It didn’t look good at all,” the bar owner said. “I mean I’ve never seen somebody jump three feet in the air on someone’s head, and that’s the only place they hit the man.””
This is the good guy.
This is the bad guy.
As I said before, if you are being attacked by black thugs, not just thugs but black thugs, you are faced with a number of bad options;
Don’t resist, because you fear PC, and allow them to rob you, beat you, rape you, murder you. All bad outcomes.
Resist and hurt them or kill them, stay around, thinking being in the right will protect you, and get harassed, arrested, publicly excoriated and ostracized by the media and the President. (Especially if it is an election year for democrats or Obama- ask Zimmerman and Wilson how that worked out.)
Kill them, walk away and hope nobody finds you.
If you call it in, you are considered the victim by most police agencies. If you don’t and they call it in. “Some crazy cracker just shot up my boyfriend and his homies! And for no reason, it wuzn’t like we wuz’ robbin’ him!” You can be considered the bad guy- like Bernie Goetz.
Goetz killed some black kids who were running the subways robbing people. Back then in NYC, the mayor was an idiot, the thugs ruled the street and the concept of “broken windows” policing had not been born yet.
I remember that case and thought back then, “so”? You rob people you take on the inherent risk one of those people may pop a cap in your ass. It just is. It is like cleaning sewers for a living and bitching you stepped in shit.
I have no idea why we let this go on. PC is a powerful tool only if you let it be one. But then again, I can’t see why Paul Ryan is running for speaker or Merkel is killing her own nation.
But I’m not convinced it is because they are smarter than me.
There is no other explanation. Even he boasts on his friend’s video before and after about not messing with him. Colin Flathery has been cataloging the increase of black on white violence- something Obama rejects by the way- for years. He’s written books about it, done videos about it, and spoken openly about a problem nobody wants to address, especially Obama.
The suspect, a superbly ignorant black young man by the name, and I kid you not, Ibn Hunter, let his friend post the video because he doesn’t care. He doesn’t care he looks like an animal- because he is. He doesn’t care it goes viral- because that makes him famous. He doesn’t care he will get caught because he’s been getting caught since he was a kid- because he is stupid. And yes, you are wondering how he is still alive, not dead from starvation somewhere as it should be for useless vermin like him? Because we support them. I’m sure if you look within his circle you will see the kind hand of government feeding him.
Mr. Hunter was famous for a little while. Then Mr. Hunter was identified and arrested and went to jail. During that time in jail Mr. Ibn Hunter got froggy with the jailers and was suddenly introduced to gravity and the cement floor.
Cute kid. All he need is some rich white elites in New York to adopt him and take him into their upper east side condo.
I am convinced Mr. Ibn Hunter (you can’t make it up), didn’t realize he was getting froggy at the time. In fact, I’m sure he was just hanging out, minding his own business when the jailer looked at him and said, “Stop resisting!”
At which point Mr. Ibn Hunter said “What dog? I is just standing here. I ain’t resisten’ nothing! You on crack or something? Uh oh!”
There is justice, and then there is justice. The second justice will make a bigger impression on Ibn Hunter than the first.
I hope Mr. Ibn Hunter stays in the news. I hope some investigative reporter asks how he eats, where he sleeps and how he is funding his life, a life that should have been culled long ago.
Hunter is now facing an additional count of assault on a law enforcement officer.
Records obtained by Press of Atlantic City show that the 25-year-old has a lengthy rap sheet, including five convictions on drug and theft charges.
There is a point where the critical mass is reached. We may be pretty much at that point now.
We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year. Let that number sink in for a moment. You can’t support a middle class family in America today on just $2,500 a month – especially after taxes are taken out. And yet more than half of all workers in this country make less than that each month. In order to have a thriving middle class, you have got to have an economy that produces lots of middle class jobs, and that simply is not happening in America today.
You can find the report that the Social Security Administration just released right here. The following are some of the numbers that really stood out for me…
-38 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000 last year.
-51 percent of all American workers made less than $30,000 last year.
-62 percent of all American workers made less than $40,000 last year.
-71 percent of all American workers made less than $50,000 last year.
That first number is truly staggering. The federal poverty level for a family of five is $28,410, and yet almost 40 percent of all American workers do not even bring in $20,000 a year.
If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make approximately $20,000. This should tell you something about the quality of the jobs that our economy is producing at this point.
And of course the numbers above are only for those that are actually working. As I discussed just recently, there are 7.9 million working age Americans that are “officially unemployed” right now and another 94.7 million working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force”. When you add those two numbers together, you get a grand total of 102.6 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.
So many people that I know are barely scraping by right now. Many families have to fight tooth and nail just to make it from month to month, and there are lots of Americans that find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into debt.
If you can believe it, about a quarter of the country actually has a negative net worth right now.
Our leaders argue we should be more like the socialists in Europe- who pay the majority of their income in taxes to the state. I think Bernie Sanders gave Denmark as an example. One problem with that. If you want to be Demark, be prepared to be twenty-eight percent poorer- mostly due to high government taxes. But at least Denmark is actually more business friendly that the U.S., something I’m sure Bernie would fix as soon as possible! Not!
Denmark would be on the low end of our poorer states. So, if you want that- vote for the democrats.
Plus, don’t forget Demark doesn’t have any Baltimores either. Soon they will, as they are importing their own suicide through Islamic invasions. But now, not so much.
However, the point above is we may be closer to a socialist, and barely functioning, country than people want to admit. When your middle class is poor- you are a Second World nation.
I would love to blame Obama, and he is part of the problem, but this mess has been festering for a long time. Bernie Sanders thinks government can correct the drift. He’s wrong of course, because government by and large is the reason for the drift, especially since it decided to lay down with big business rather than be the true watchdog over it.
It is so bad with the national COC that I think we see this happen when Boehner is around.
(yes, Bacon is Boehner and Ryan)
So what will happen? This may be the indication of the future, as the middle class decides if HRC, the government, the banks and the elites don’t play by the rules then why should they?
This article tells the story of the average middle to upper middle class white couple who suddenly realized a lifetime of playing by the rules was just stupid. Nobody else is doing it, so why should they. Imagine 220 million of them? And what would it take for that to happen? (Think Hillary winning and you’d be close to an answer!)
This couple ran into the home real-estate debacle, the recession, low interest rates and the government program called HAMP. Then they reached their breaking point.
Even after the Global Financial Crisis had seriously hurt their retirement nest egg—and therefore their monthly income—and even fully aware that they would probably not live to see their house regain the value it has lost since they bought it, they kept up the mortgage payments. The idea of them strategically defaulting is as absurd as them sprouting wings.
When HAMP—the Home Affordable Modification Program—was unveiled, they applied, because they qualified: Every single one of the conditions applied to them, so there was no question that they would be approved—at least in theory.
Applying for HAMP was quite a struggle: Go here, go there, talk to this person, that person, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. “It’s like they didn’t want us to qualify,” Ilsa told me, as she recounted their mind-numbing travails.
It was a months-long struggle—but finally, they were approved for HAMP: Their mortgage period was extended, and the interest rate was lowered. Even though their home was still underwater, and even though they still owed the same principal to their bank, Brian and Ilsa were very happy: Their mortgage payments had gone down by 40%. This was equivalent to about 15% of their retirement income. So of course they were happy.
However, three months later, out of the blue, they got a letter from their bank, Wells Fargo: It said that, after further review, Brian and Ilsa had in fact not qualified for HAMP. Therefore, their mortgage would go back to the old rate. Not only that, they now owed the difference for the three months when they had paid the lowered mortgage—and to add insult to injury, they were assessed a “penalty for non-payment”.
So basically, after a lifetime of doing it right they get the “screw you” letter. How did they react? They revolted.
Remember the rule is this; they rule because we let them. We stop letting them, and they stop ruling. There isn’t enough police, courts, feds, guns, ammo, military etc to force 220 million people into line. You have to take generations to indoctrinate them and then maybe, only maybe.
Brian and Ilsa—the nice upper-middle-class retired couple, who always follow the rules, and never ever break the law—who don’t even cheat on their golf scores—even when they’re playing alone (“Because if you cheat at golf, you’re only cheating yourself”)—have decided to give their bank the middle finger.
They have essentially said, Fuckit.
They haven’t defaulted—not yet. They’re paying the lower mortgage rate. That they’re making payments is because of Brian: He is insisting that they pay something—Ilsa is of the opinion that they should forget about paying the mortgage at all.
“We follow the rules, and look where that’s gotten us?” she says, furious and depressed. “Nowhere. They run us around, like lab rats in a cage. This HAMP business was supposed to help us. I bet the bank went along with the program for three months, so that they could tell the government that they had complied—and when the government got off their backs, they turned around and raised the mortgage back up again!”
“And charged us a penalty,” Brian chimes in. The non-payment penalty was only $84—but it might as well been $84 million, for all the outrage they feel. “A penalty for non-payment!”
Nevertheless, Brian is insisting that they continue paying the mortgage—albeit the lower monthly payment—because he’s still under the atavistic sway of his law-abiding-ness.
But Ilsa is quietly, constantly insisting that they stop paying the mortgage altogether: “Everybody else is doing it—so why shouldn’t we?”
A terrible sentence, when a law-abiding citizen speaks it: Everybody else is doing it—so why don’t we?
That is a good question. Why play by the rules? HRC play by the rules? Why tell the truth? When was the last time somebody in D.C. told the truth? Why even try?
Truth is the nation’s bedrock are the people like Brian and Ilsa. They quit, we are totally screwed. You think if they stop trying THIS guy is going to step up?
(more on this guy later)
Point is, if the middle class quits, then America quits. And then it is over.
Which is why Ryan trembles. Boehner lies and the rest of the D.C. crew are trying to “get theirs” before it goes south for the last time.
Trump can’t fix it, Cruz can’t fix it, Carson can’t fix it, and God help us if Hillary gets in- because all she’ll care about is making money from her power. Oh, yeah and beating on us at every turn.
The only people left to right the ship are the people who built it. Don’t let anyone tell you different.
Here is Hillary, a young ideologue, working to prove Nixon should not be President because he is a liar and a crook.
Back then, you could not remain a crook or a liar and be President. So Nixon left.
His crime? Covering up a third rate burglary he didn’t plan, targeting his political enemies. The nation went crazy over eighteen minutes of erased tape PROVING he was a crook and guilty of obstruction of justice.
Kind of like the IRS scandal, Benghazi, White Water, Rose law firm records, the FBI records of Republicans ordered up by HRC while first lady?
Heck, even Nixon didn’t have a foundation or a husband taking bribes from nations and companies.
Or using a private server and scrubbing 30,000 emails?
But he’s gone? And he didn’t get anyone directly under him killed??
And she’s the front runner for President forty years later?
I watched the hearing. The Republicans did their best to stay focused. The Dems did they best to yell and scream and whine. And they looked just like that was what they are doing.
What I found the most offensive, outside the fact we are still talking about the video, is that now the narrative is the currently dead Chris Stevens did it to himself. HRC says she knows this because they were friends, they talked all the time, he set up the whole thing, BUT they never talked about security.
Greg Gutfield got the closest to the truth. The committee just received Stevens emails, after three years. She denied ever seeing or hearing or being informed about any security problems, even though that was her job- directly. To refute this, they will have to go through the emails and see if any got to her. I’m sure on her side the emails were scrubbed. So, when the link appears, expect her to suddenly not remember them. She did a lot of that when cornered, like when asked if she knew where her long time friend, Sidney Blumenthal, worked- which turned out to be the Clinton Foundation. (Some of us are old enough to have followed the “White Water” investigation back in the nineties. She did the same exact thing. )
Also, she practiced this day over and over so not to laugh out loud or get angry. But her “tell” is the chin in the hand and the rolling of the eyes when the truth is being told. She moved her hand to her face to force everything into neutral, except for her eyes.
So what? I lied. It’s what I do! Have you not been paying attention for the last thirty years?
When cornered a little, she would lower her voice and talk with sincerity about how those poor brave men should be honored for their sacrifice (of course not with the truth or her contrition, but with other things- like voting for her)
Then when the lights were out and her friends were cheering that she didn’t confess we get this.
Hey look, nobody laid a glove on me. I lied and nobody caught it!
But we did catch it. And it is one hell of a campaign commercial for the other side! Imagine showing her all upset and then “scoring touchdowns”off screen. “Do you trust her to be sincere?” tagline.
She got into a back and forth with Gowdy and that lasted about two minutes before he beat her into submission. In fact, several of the representatives were very good and very focused, but Gowdy is not to be trifled with. And it makes me wonder if McCarthy’s verbal flub was a mistake after all. Sellouts abound in D.C.
One of her lies is that the CIA and the State were in Benghazi to recover weapons, including manpads, in order to destroy them.
Now she blames Gadaffi for causing that problem, even though it was her “rebels” that seized the weapons from his armories- after they killed him. So, in a sense, she is blaming two dead people for her problems.
What nobody touched was the lie about why even after all the risk, she wanted Stevens and the CIA to stay in Benghazi. It was about buying guns, but not to “destroy them”. It was to transfer them to Libya for her other secret war. Everybody knows, even Senator Paul has openly complained that the seizure and transfer of Libyan weapons to Syrian rebels was borderline criminal. The trouble is a bunch of Congressmen knew about the program and didn’t say a word. So… do you open that can?
My takeaway is that HRC did what she needed to do, she was focused, lied smoothly enough and didn’t have another meltdown. What the Republicans managed to do was get her to lie in public, kick the responsibility to dead people, and open up a number of new inquiries- like who was in these “meetings” she held all the time about Benghazi.
Sidney Blumenthal is just icing, and the exchange between her and the congressman asking if she knew where he got a job after Obama didn’t want him was priceless. She acted stupid and he told her “Clinton Foundation”- like she didn’t know. She was speechless. Hilarious.
Her guy! More important that Stevens’ life.
So lets get this straight. Her friend, her confidant, her supporter, needed a job after the State couldn’t hire him, so the Clinton Foundation gave him one- and she didn’t know. Then he started sending her intelligence documents she admitted he did not have the skill or knowledge to complete and she never questioned HIS source. But she did redact his name and pass the document around to get immediate input from everyone- including Stevens who was busy ducking IEDs at the compound- and even the White House.
Further, the Republicans exposed the lie on the video quite effectively.
They pushed her to admit it was her responsibility – PERSONALLY- to make sure her people were safe. But she refused, instead laying the blame Stevens and the unknown “security experts” as the fall guys. Since the committee did not have Stevens’ emails yet, the chain of security requests and responses are missing.
But not forever.
Another critical point that will have to be fleshed out is the photo one Congressman put up showing a meeting between an AQI member and our people. He asked if she knew about this meeting and she was genuinely stunned. Either she knew and was shocked he knew, or she doesn’t and her “oh shit” meter just pegged.
There was a ton of other things, hopefully Gowdy was making notes and lists.
I have a few:
It is obvious there are still missing emails between Stevens and HRC or emails dealing with the security. Gowdy just got 1300 Stevens from the State after three years- a crime in of itself, but who’s counting.
She is lying about knowing the security was bad. She tried to push it off on “security experts” she trusted- but can’t name.
She is lying about the reason why State and the CIA were in Benghazi.
She lied about the source of the attack. That was proven today- whether the dems want to admit it or not.
She did not know or did not know they knew about the meeting between our people and AQI- “The rebels”. (Hey guys in the media, a little follow up would be nice.)
It was HER plan all along and her people- including Blumenthal- wanted to make sure she got credit for her political future (and theirs).
She back-doored Sidney Blumenthal into the process after being told by Obama not to. She employed him, listened to him and tried to get him business- while running a secret war. That is important.
She knew there was a security problem, laughed about the comment Stevens said about a fire sale (because he had such a good sense of humor don’t you know) until that fire sale was him trying to scrounge up barricades for securing his unsecured compound. So she knew, but won’t admit it until there is a document forcing her.
She is trying to blame the “hero” Chris Stevens for basically volunteering to get himself killed. We can’t ask him, he’s dead. Until documents force her to tell the truth, she’ll wrap herself in his corpse.
She denied Cheryl Mills, her long time confidant and lawyer, and Chief of Staff, never told her the State Department had contacted Mills about the emails. It was such a bad and cheap lie, it took Congressman Westmoreland off guard a little. Which he did not handle well.
I am still going through the third set of the questioning. Fox decided it was more important to let O’Reilly bloviate than follow the last part, so I had to turn to and tape Ugh- CNN! From what I gather there were a few gems in that last segment. Too bad Fox didn’t care enough to follow through. Breitbairt has some headlines.
(This is important. Her email traffic literally disappeared once the situation fell apart. I didn’t say it quit- it disappeared literally as in “wiped with a cloth”. )
Hillary Cared Deeply About the Human Cost.
Hillary kept claiming that she cared deeply about her good friend Chris Stevens. At one point, she whipped out her pre-planned righteous indignation to complain, “I would imagine I’ve thought more about what happened than all of you put together. I’ve lost more sleep than all of you put together.” This was salt in the wound, the equivalent of Johnny Cochrane lamenting his worries over the fate of Nicole Brown Simpson.
Hillary Thought The Attacks Had Something to Do With a YouTube Video.
Hillary maintained on Thursday that she believed the attack still had something to do with the YouTube video, “The Innocence of Muslims.” But the night of the attack, she emailed Chelsea Clinton and told her that an al-Qaeda-like group had killed the ambassador. As Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said to Clinton, “You tell the American people one thing. You tell your family an entirely different story.”
Hillary Didn’t Use Sidney Blumenthal As an Advisor.
Hillary Clinton had reams of email exchanges with hitman Sidney Blumenthal. Blumenthal had been banned from the Obama administration for his corruption and Clintonian loyalties. Hillary said that the emails were unsolicited.Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) shot that idiocy down easily: “You wrote to him, ‘Thanks and please keep them coming,’ ‘Greetings from Kabul and thanks for keeping this stuff coming, any other info about it?’ ‘What are you hearing now?’” Hillary then tried to amend her statement by saying they began as unsolicited emails. Hillary used Blumenthal as an advisor, and she routinely corresponded with him. Any implication to the contrary is absolutely fals
Hillary Was Transparent About Her Emails.
Hillary insisted again on Thursday that she’d been fully transparent about her emails. Even the State Department has rejected that nonsense repeatedly. The hearings did provide some perspective into just why Hillary might have deleted 30,000 emails, however, she claimed that her correspondence about Libya, which dropped dramatically from 2011 to 2012, was not because she cared less about the country—it was because she had people shuttling documents to her in suitcases. In fact, she said, she didn’t even have a computer in her office. A State Department email address could have confirmed whether any of that was true. Now we will presumably never know.
Chris Stevens Was Responsible for His Own Death.
The most despicable lie of the day came from Hillary’s defense of her own conduct via ripping Chris Stevens, the dead ambassador. She spent virtually the entire day suggesting that Stevens knew the risks of his job, that he accepted those risks, and that he died knowing those risks. She even said that Stevens “felt comfortable” on the ground. If that is true, it’s certainly odd that the State Department team in Libya asked for more security over 600 times. Hillary said she didn’t receive any of those requests and blamed her security team for not granting more security—all the while saying she took responsibility for what had happened.
This last point is the classic look into Hillary’s mind. She really believes she has taken responsibility- be even being bothered by this. And that Stevens is to blame for her being bothered by this. It is really amazing and a great window into her arrogant personality. You could see the “How dare you!” written all over her face all day.
Do you want the next President of the United States to think the deaths of her citizens are a bother to her royal life?
That’s what you should take away from this mess. She only cares about herself. She’s waited forty-nine years to get here. She will walk over the corpses of her people just to get to the finish line- and blame them for ruining her shoes.
Bill Whittle has warned us what will happen if we follow her.
I saw this and felt it worthy of a few comments. Not just for this particular subject but for the overall subject of “What is truth?”
Truth is what the powerful and the controlling entities say it is. In another time, the saying was “The victors write history.”
As Howard Portnoy noted earlier, some countries that ban or heavily restrict guns have higher rates of mass shootings than the U.S. does. Yet, in discussing the recent college murders in Roseburg, Oregon, President Obama falsely claimed we need more gun regulations because “states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths.”
As a Washington Post fact-checker notes, the president’s claim was based on a misleading August 28 National Journal article by Libby Isenstein that has been touted by gun-control groups. That article bizarrely excluded many states with low homicide rates and few gun laws in reaching the conclusion that “the states with the most gun laws” have “the fewest gun-related deaths” while “states with fewer regulations typically have a much higher death rate from guns.”
The National Journal disproportionately excluded low-crime, pro-gun states such as Vermont, South Dakota, and Maine from its chart of homicide rates precisely because their homicide rate was low. These states have few gun laws (Vermont has the least of any state) and very low homicide rates. If you disproportionately exclude unregulated states that are safest from the calculation of which states have the lowest homicide rates, that will create the false impression that states with the most gun laws have the fewest gun deaths.
But in its discussions of “Concealed Carry” and “Background Checks,” the National Journal deletes these states from its charts comparing pro-gun and anti-gun states by “Gun-related homicides per 100,000 people, by state (2013).” It deletes Vermont, South Dakota, Maine, and 8 other states (6 of which have few gun regulations) from each chart, claiming that these states had “too few homicides to calculate a reliable rate.” 9 of the 11 states excluded broadly allow concealed carry and do not impose additional background-check requirements beyond those contained in federal law. But the National Journal deliberately excluded those states, writing, “In 2013, Alaska, Idaho, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming had too few homicides to calculate a reliable rate.”
Because they have too few homicides, pro-gun states aren’t in the mix? Why? Because they would skew the results desired by the people doing the “scientific” study.
Wow. Read the rest.
Also, note this little tidbit. For a long time we’ve known Google search tries to drive you in the direction it feels is proper. That’s too bad, but it is the biggest girl at the dance. However, this is also troublesome. Especially since it drives so much interaction between people across the globe. (Another sad fact and commentary on what we’ve become as humans.)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard on a hot mic confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over anti-immigrant posts, amid complaints from her government that the social network isn’t doing enough to curtail racist comments.
The two were overheard exchanging words on a live transmission broadcast on the United Nations website, as participants took their seats at a U.N. development summit in New York on Saturday, Bloomberg reported.
After Ms. Merkel asked Mr. Zuckerberg about offensive posts on the refugee crisis, the Facebook CEO said “we need to do some work” on the issue.
“Are you working on this?” Ms. Merkel asked in English, Bloomberg reported.
“Yeah,” Mr. Zuckerberg reportedly responded, before the transmission was disrupted.
A surge of Syrian refugees seeking asylum in Germany has spurred a spate of attacks on refugee centers and anti-immigrant sentiment, Bloomberg reported. Earlier this month, Facebook vowed to clean up racist content on its German website by partnering with a German Internet watchdog, called Voluntary Self-Monitoring of Multimedia Service Providers, to monitor suspected hate postings.
“We are committed to working closely with the German government on this important issue,” Facebook spokeswoman Debbie Frost told Bloomberg. “We think the best solutions to dealing with people who make racist and xenophobic comments can be found when service providers, government and civil society all work together to address this common challenge.”
Who decides what is and what isn’t appropriate? Merkel? FaceBook? What if it is the truth? Then what? What if it is talking about this? Or this?
Muslim “migrants” from Chechnya..
Chechnya. Where the baddest of the bad terrorists FOR GENERATIONS have been bred.
An employee of Platte River Networks, the Colorado tech company that managed Hillary Clinton’s private server, worried they were inadvertently “covering up some shaddy [sic] shit” by heeding Clinton’s request to reduce the number of e-mails stored on the server, according to a letter from Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Ron Johnson (R., Wis.). Johnson’s letter, first reported by McClatchy, quotes a series of e-mails between Platte River employees late this summer, as the Clinton e-mail scandal continued to rage. One worker noticed that Clinton’s representatives had twice instructed the small tech company to significantly reduce the amount of e-mail data being stored each time it backed up the server. In hindsight, the nature and timing of the requests seemed suspicious. Clinton’s team first asked Platte River to start storing only the last 30 days of e-mails with each server backup in October or November of 2014, just before she turned over what she said were her official e-mails to the State Department. They reiterated that request in February, just before the scandal broke publicly. “This whole thing really is covering up some shaddy [sic] shit,” the unidentified employee wrote, worried that Platte River Networks could be blamed. “If we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, and then we can go public with our statement saying we have had backups since day one, then were told to trim to 30 days, it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better.”
Apparently, Hillary’s computer of choice.
Yep, it would have. Right now, Obama is trying to back a bus over Hillary, with is non-defense, defense of Hillary. Translated it says, “She screwed up because she makes bad choices. We warned her, so IF there is a problem here- like exposing an active CIA operative, we had nothing to do with it.”
And apparently there is a whole ton of problems with the server and the email and the security issues. There is no way she wasn’t hacked multiple times.
The only item missing from the secret e-mail server run by Hillary Clinton appears to be the welcome mat for hackers. According to the Associated Press, the Clintons set up remote-control operations of its server without ever bothering to build in the normal security that would accompany those functions in a professional setting — if one could even find a professional setting that would allow those functions to operate at all:
Clinton’s server, which handled her personal and State Department correspondence, appeared to allow users to connect openly over the Internet to control it remotely, according to detailed records compiled in 2012. Experts said the Microsoft remote desktop service wasn’t intended for such use without additional protective measures, and was the subject of U.S. government and industry warnings at the time over attacks from even low-skilled intruders.
Just in case any hackers missed the “Open House” sign on the unlocked front door, the Clintons left two back doors unlocked, too:
Records show that Clinton additionally operated two more devices on her home network in Chappaqua, New York, that also were directly accessible from the Internet. One contained similar remote-control software that also has suffered from security vulnerabilities, known as Virtual Network Computing, and the other appeared to be configured to run websites.
Now remember, she did this to avoid being scrutinized by Congress or the media while she was working her Clinton Foundation, private war, running off the books business deals- all of which are illegal in any other context except for “being a Clinton”.
Seriously, you democrats have to know at some point…she…is…not…worth…it.
I mean how many people did she get killed and injured or operations screwed up because she was a greedy, arrogant, paranoid bitch? And you want her to be President?????!!!
