MUST READ! "Shodan" The scariest search engine on the Internet


New York - "When people don't see stuff on Google, they think no one can find it. That's not true."

That's according to John Matherly, creator of Shodan, the scariest search engine on the Internet.

Unlike Google, which crawls the Web looking for websites, Shodan navigates the Internet's back channels. It's a kind of "dark" Google, looking for the servers, webcams, printers, routers and all the other stuff that is connected to and makes up the Internet.

Lib Rag: Charlie Rangel: Tea Party Is ‘Same Group’ Of ‘White Crackers’ Who Fought Civil Rights

In an interview with the Daily Beast published Friday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested Tea Partiers are the "same group" who fought for segregation during the Civil Rights movement.

“It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked," Rangel said.

Shocking: Black Teen Unemployment Rate 41.6%


Friday's jobs report was disappointing, but it also contained a truly heartbreaking statistic. Black teen unemployment is a shocking 41.6%. In July last year, the unemployment was considerably lower, at 36%. That almost half of black teens who want to work can't find jobs is a stain on Obama's economic policies.


NSA’s ‘Homeland’ includes Canada, Greenland, Mexico, Central America


Interesting... I remember seeing a map a few years back of the North American landscape after the NWO gained total control of the world economy. It consisted of NO borders between any of the countries listed here. Hmmm....  Can-Americo?

Americans now have responsibility for a bunch of new places they can’t find on a map.

It turns out that the National Security Agency considers Canada, Greenland, Mexico and parts of Central America as part of the U.S. “Homeland.”

dna exclusive: As US pulls out of Afghanistan, its weapons head for Pakistan


With the United States all set to withdraw from Afghanistan, alarm bells have begun to ring in New Delhi as reports indicate that a lot of arms being used by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) could end up with the Pakistani military.

The last time Pakistan received advanced weapons from the Americans in the 1980s, it led to the eruption of a terrorism movement in Kashmir. It is understood that New Delhi’s concerns have been communicated to US vice president Joe Biden who was on a state visit here last month.

In Seattle, the terms 'citizen' and 'brown bag' are now offensive


'Citizen' and 'brown bag' are now offensive words, Seattle tells government employees.

Public information officers for the City of Seattle have been advised to stop using the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" -- as in brown-bag lunch -- saying they could be offensive to some city residents.

Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights circulated the memo encouraging government employees to avoid using the potentially offensive terms.

Instead of "brown-bag lunch," he suggests "sack lunch" or, for some inexplicable reason "lunch-and-learn," as in, "do you want to go out with us, or are you lunch-and-learning it?"

He defended the recommendation on the radio, saying the term "brown bag" has a sordid history.

Was Benghazi CIA Annex Running Guns To Syrian Rebels?


The Libyan Lie: Dozens more CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi than previously acknowledged. Were they running guns to Syrian rebels? And why are they and their families now being intimidated?

The only thing "phony" about the Benghazi scandal has been the cacophony of falsehoods and obfuscation pouring out of the Obama administration about the night four Americans, including the personal representative of President Obama, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed.

Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in Benghazi the night of the terrorist attack, dozens more than previously reported, raising questions anew of why they were really there, what they were really doing and why the administration has tried so hard to fudge the facts and hide the truth.

One big unanswered question is why there was a CIA annex near to what was supposed to be a fledgling diplomatic outpost in Benghazi — a soon-to-be, we were told, diplomatic mission envisioned as the first fruits of the now-mythical "Arab Spring."

We may have the hint of an answer in revelations by Jake Tapper of CNN that dozens of previously undisclosed people working for the CIA were there that night, and that the agency is now going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing remains a secret.

CNN reports that some CIA operatives involved in the agency's missions in Libya have been subjected to frequent, even monthly, polygraph examinations, perhaps to confirm that they have not divulged information that the CIA and the Obama administration don't want the American people to know.

"Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that," said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer. Why the greatly increased post-Benghazi frequency? The degree of fear and intimidation that currently permeates the agency is demonstrated by exclusive communications obtained by CNN in which one insider writes, "You don't jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well."

As Tapper reported earlier, the CIA had two objectives in Libya: countering the terrorist threat that emerged as extremists poured into the unstable country, and helping secure the flood of weapons after the fall of Moammar Gadhafi that could have easily been funneled to terrorists.

"One of the reasons that we and other government agencies were present in Benghazi is exactly that," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before Congress in January. "We had a concerted effort to try to track down and find and recover as many MANPADS (man-portable air defense systems) and other very dangerous weapons as possible,"

Atlantic Writer 'Tuned Out' Benghazi; Now Wants Investigation


What happens when a writer with a left of center periodical such as The Atlantic honestly confronts the unfolding and inconvenient facts of what the Obama administration labels as the "phony scandal" of Benghazi? A reality check. Such was the case with Conor Friedersdorf who although he has enough of a libertarian streak in him to have opposed Obama's re-election, still has enough leftwing bonafides to absurdly slam Rush Limbaugh for "race baiting."

Therefore it must have come as something of a shock to the liberal bubble readers of The Atlantic to read Friedersdorf admit that he had "tuned out" Benghazi as most of the MSM reporters had done but has now changed his mind as you can see in the self-explanatory title of his article: The Attack in Benghazi: Worth Investigating After All. Here is Friedersdorf's explanation for his change of mind:

15 armed agents storm animal shelter to euthanize baby deer called Giggles because of local law that forbids keeping wildlife


Danger: Giggles the baby deer was euthanized in July when government agents stormed an animal shelter
Government agents swarmed an animal shelter and killed a baby deer named Giggles as Wisconsin law forbids keeping wildlife without the right permit.

WISN 12 News reported on a military-style operation in July where nine officers from the Department of Natural Resources and four deputy sheriffs stormed the barn at the Society of St. Francis on the Illinois border.

Angry Cindy Schulze, the shelter's president, is planning legal action and questioned whether the raid was a good use of government resources.

She accused authorities of going 'way over the top for a little, tiny, baby deer.'




So what exactly did What Difference Does It Make do to support and defend our nation and allies?

She worked for an administration that tanked two wars, started a third that got four Americans killed and forced the French to invade Mali. That administration also helped overthrow pro-American governments and replace them with Islamist regimes.

It cut health care for the military, fired countless military personnel and tied the hands of soldiers in the field leading to unprecedented casualties in Afghanistan. Hillary’s contribution to that conflict involved apologizing to Pakistan.

Giving Hillary a Patriot award in the Ronald Reagan building is like giving Polio an award in the Jonas Salk building.

High School plans to screen ALL ninth-graders for depression, suicidal tendencies


Michael Leichliter
Penn Manor Superintendent Michael Leichliter wants to bring mental health issues out of the shadows and beyond the boundaries of the home.

"Schools need to pay attention to it, too," he said.

This fall, Penn Manor School District will pilot the TeenHope program, a partnership with Lancaster's Samaritan Counseling Center that will screen ninth-grade students for depression and suicidal tendencies.

Leichliter said he believes that after the Sandy Hook school massacre the national discussion should have focused more on an "increased awareness of mental health."

by Nathaniel Grant

Forty-four is the mystery man: he's called the President,
He never goes himself, its his men who have been sent.

Guns that shouldn't have been sold, cross the border they did go,
Fast and Furious, to drug cartels, in good old Mexico.

When a border agent got killed, leaving a family in despair,
Neither the Attorney General, nor Forty-four seemed to really care!

The President, the President, so where was the President?
On September 11, 2012, a date we won't forget!

Protection was not an issue for the Secretary of State,
And Secretary Panetta didn't reinforce the gate.

The War on Terror was over, that's the line that he would take.
Blame it on a movie, even if that's a big mistake.

Is the President against religion, should praying be a sin?
Will the Federal Reserve print money, and give it to his kin?

Can massive government spending really save the day?
And increasing taxes on the rich, so that they will have to pay?

When the teleprompters working, Forty-four can talk a lot
And if there is a scandal, he's NOT Johnny on the Spot.

Let's not forget the IRS, and the targeting that they make,
And when Congress asks the questions, the Fifth they'd like to take.

If its a 501(c)(3) you are filing for, then depending on your goal,
You may get answered quickly, or they drop your papers in a hole.

The President, the President, there's no one like the President
Liberal media's boy wonder, how much better could it get?

If there's a whiff of scandal, he can get away,
Las Vegas or South Africa, those are places he can play.

He can blame the Tea Party, for the riots that they cause.
While the Occupy Wall Street kids, get his firm applause.

Is sequestration or castration, the answer to no budget?
Close the parks and blame the Congress, that's how he will fudge it!

There's no money for White House tours, but he can fly away.
And find some sunny place, rounds of golf are fun to play.

The President's great education, his records have been sealed,
And in what backroom politics, did his cards get neatly dealed?

He leads this great nation, from behind is what some say,
(But just between you and me, I think that's really gay!)

Mr. President, Mr. President, are you really proud?
Standing like a Monarch King before a dwindling crowd.

Is the bloated government finally going to pop?
As the numbers of real jobs, go towards a fatal drop.

Forty-four have you given thought as to your great legacy?
Who will stand to give you praise, as you exit gracefully?

Dear Forty-four, Mr. President, one last comment I shall make.
The great Affordable Health Care Act, was it a big mistake?

Will the people really stand and cheer, or lay dying and simply curse?
And who will be there mourning, when you are in the hearse?

O’Reilly Threatens To Sue New Haven Register If It Doesn’t ‘Apologize In Writing’ By Friday For Libel


When he uses the specific legal term “libel”, sets specific terms to cure damages (apology by Friday), and says “I’m not gonna let this go” if the damages aren’t cured, it’s clear that he is threatening a lawsuit. Whether he’s serious or just saber rattling, we’ll see. From last night, Wednesday, July 31:

Libel 1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie.

Who Can Sue For Defamation? In order to be actionable, a defamatory statement must be “of and concerning” the plaintiff. This means that a defamation plaintiff must show that a reasonable person would understand that the statement was referring to him or her. Of course, if a blog post or online article identifies the plaintiff by name, this requirement will be easily met. The plaintiff need not be specifically named, however, if there are enough identifying facts that any (but not necessarily every) person reading or hearing it would reasonably understand it to refer to the plaintiff.

A company or organization can be a defamation plaintiff. In fact, the largest jury verdict every awarded in a libel case came in a case brought by a business plaintiff.

Public school textbook with 72 pages on Islam for every 1 page on other religions?


Islamic bias well documented in 38 textbooks

Members of a Florida ACT! for America chapter, along with members of a Florida organization called Citizens for National Security, recently got the attention of elected officials and local school board members regarding the pro-Islamic bias in a Florida approved school textbook.

“This special treatment of Islam consists of devoting many more pages to Islam when compared to any other religion in an approximate ratio of 72 to one.” - State Representative Ritch Workman

“From what I’ve read and heard over the past few years about Islam contradicts what’s in these textbooks.” – Andy Ziegler, Brevard School Board Member.

How could any educator, administrator, school board member or parent in America justify devoting 72 pages about Islam for every one page about Christianity and Judaism in an America public school textbook?

In early 2012, ACT! for America Education released a 229 page report that revealed extensive bias, inaccuracies and pro-Islamic indoctrination in 38 public school textbooks. You can view the complete report and Executive Summary HERE.

See the two minute video below:

Find out if your school’s textbooks are promoting Islam and denigrating Christianity, ancient Israel, and modern Israel. You might find textbooks saying Muslims discovered America, or stating religious doctrines of Islam as fact. Visit ACT For Education here.

The Obama administration has previously stated that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected foreign terrorists.

Would-be Waffle House Robber himself, becomes a leaky waffle


Waffle House Patron Shoots Unsuspecting Armed Robber

On Monday morning, a robber walked into an Atlanta Waffle House and pointed a gun at patrons. The crook was wearing a bandana and hoodie, according to reports.

Everyone in the restaurant undoubtably saw their lives flash before their eyes. That is, until one Waffle House patron pulled out his own gun and fired at the bandit.

The suspect is Ashton Macafee, 20. After entering the Waffle House, he screamed. “Nobody move and open the cash register!” The incident happened around 2am in south Fulton County.

The man who fired back at Macafee, and likely saved the lives of some innocent patrons, was an off-duty security guard named Evans Chad Pollard. He fired two shots at Macafee, hitting him both times. Pollard said, “I felt that not only my life, but everyone’s life was in danger, so I had to do what I had to do. Everybody was scared and when I eliminated the threat, everyone felt calm. He came in and I did what I could.”

He continued, “As soon as he pointed [the gun] at us I’m like, I thought I was going to die right there.”

Pollard said he used to be a firefighter before becoming a security guard.

Macafee did not die as a result of the gunshots, but he is currently in critical condition in the hospital.

Thankfully, Pollard has not been charged with anything for shooting the crook. This man is a hero, and should be treated as such.

UK Internet Filter to Also Block Conspiracy Theories


Big Brother Weds the Nanny Who's Pregnant with Internet Censorship.

Here is the real problem with the Internet
Dees Illustration
Eric Blair
Activist Post

The totalitarian tip-toe is tap dancing to tyranny with the proposed Internet censorship bill in the United Kingdom. In the name of keeping children safe from porn, the UK law will impose Internet filters on far more than just porn.

According to Wired:

As well as pornography, users may automatically be opted in to blocks on "violent material", "extremist related content", "anorexia and eating disorder websites" and "suicide related websites", "alcohol" and "smoking". But the list doesn't stop there. It even extends to blocking "web forums" and "esoteric material", whatever that is. "Web blocking circumvention tools" is also included, of course.

The definition of "esoteric" makes clear that censorship of broad topics is the goal of this so-called ISP filter:

es·o·ter·ic [es-uh-ter-ik] adjective
1. understood by or meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest;
2. belonging to the select few.
3. private; secret; confidential.

Translation: anything outside the acceptable mainstream narrative will be filtered. In short, the free flow of information is under assault with this law.

The organization Open Rights Group refers to this totalitarian tip-toe as "sleepwalking into censorship":

What's clear here is that David Cameron wants people to sleepwalk into censorship. We know that people stick with defaults: this is part of the idea behind 'nudge theory' and 'choice architecture' that is popular with Cameron.

The implication is that filtering is good, or at least harmless, for anyone, whether adult or child. Of course, this is not true; there's not just the question of false positives for web users, but the affect on a network economy of excluding a proportion of a legitimate website's audience.

Open Rights also says the law could be used to play economic favorites, thus undermining the free market on the Internet:

There comes a point that it is simply better to place your sales through Amazon and ebay, and circulate your news and promotions exclusively through Facebook and Twitter, as you know none of these will ever be filtered.

It seems Western government's voracity for Internet censorship has increased many fold since the Snowden revelations about digital spying.

Direct Internet censorship was imposed on millions of U.S. government computers blocking them from viewing any material related to the Snowden leak, which at the time of the leak and even now represents a large percentage of all political and technical news stories.

And as John Naughton of the Guardian points out today, the real story about the Snowden leak that everyone is ignoring are the implications on Internet freedom, which he lists as the following:

The first is that the days of the internet as a truly global network are numbered. It was always a possibility that the system would eventually be Balkanised, ie divided into a number of geographical or jurisdiction-determined subnets as societies such as China, Russia, Iran and other Islamic states decided that they needed to control how their citizens communicated. Now, Balkanisation is a certainty.

Second, the issue of internet governance is about to become very contentious. Given what we now know about how the US and its satraps have been abusing their privileged position in the global infrastructure, the idea that the western powers can be allowed to continue to control it has become untenable.

Third, as Evgeny Morozov has pointed out, the Obama administration's "internet freedom agenda" has been exposed as patronising cant. "Today," he writes, "the rhetoric of the 'internet freedom agenda' looks as trustworthy as George Bush's 'freedom agenda' after Abu Ghraib."

As a final note, porn filters already exist for parents in the private marketplace if they choose to use them. So, there is no need for governments to make them mandatory, which indicates that the real agenda behind these new proposed laws is much more about censorship than protecting children.

Governor reaffirms commitment to HEA 1427

On Monday, July 29, 2013, Governor Pence sent a letter to Governing Board Chair, Mitchell Chester of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), informing him of Indiana’s choice to withdraw from the Common Core program. PARCC supports the Common Core Standards that measures student success in school. Pence stated that, “Indiana’s educational standards must be rigorous, enable college and career readiness, and align with post-secondary educational expectations to best prepare our children to compete with their national and global peers,” and that “assessments must also align with these high standards.” Hoosiers have expressed concerns about the value of Common Core Standards for months and Pence’s announcement, for many, was a welcome song.

Religious sites vandalized in Brooklyn


*NOTE: Today is Thursday and still no arrests

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Police believe they have the man who vandalized several religious-affiliated buildings and statues in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn.

Community leaders and politicians gathered Tuesday to denounce the anti-religious vandalism.

Authorities say a statue of Mary at the Church of St. Anselm was painted red sometime Monday night. The vandal also painted other statues throughout Bay Ridge and wrote the word "No" on doors of various churches and a Jewish center.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force was called in Tuesday to investigate the incidents.

Detectives plan to charge the suspect with a hate crime by Wednesday.

There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.― Booker T. Washington

Aleppo rebel religious committee forbids ‘colonial’ croissants

A sharia committee in a rebel-held area of Aleppo issued a fatwa deeming croissants ‘haram’ (forbidden in Islamic law) because of their “colonial” significance, pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Tuesday.

Croissants’ crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, according to the fatwa (religious ruling).

Rebel-controlled areas of the Syrian city have experienced several strict fatwas recently from Islamic sharia committees.

Such edicts are uncommon in Aleppo’s society, which usually adheres to moderate Islamic teachings, Asharq al-Awsat reported.

A sharia committee in the city issued a fatwa on Facebook prohibiting “Muslim women wearing makeup and tight clothes that reveal physical features from going out.”

A fatwa issued by the Council of the United Judiciary, affiliated with the rebel Free Syrian Army, stipulated a year in jail for anyone not fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.

Samir Nashar, a member of the opposition Syrian National Coalition, called on the FSA to unite its forces in Aleppo and work to prevent the expansion of these committees.

There are civil movements resisting the extremist tendencies of such committees, he told Asharq al-Awsat.

Jihadists avenge Fort Hood case in court

WASHINGTON – As Army prosecutors fight to be allowed to use evidence that Maj. Abu Nidal Malik Hasan got religious instruction and encouragement from Mullah Anwar Awlaki, lawyers are suing the government for targeting him in a drone rocket attack.


Failed European banks are now demanding the seizure of 47.5 percent of funds in private savings accounts in Cyprus.


This new form of bank bailout referred to as a "bail-in" or recapitalization, no matter how they label it, is nothing more than a theft of private savers.

According to Reuters:

Cyprus and its international lenders have agreed to convert 47.5 percent of deposits exceeding 100,000 euros in Bank of Cyprus to equity to recapitalize it, banking sources said on Sunday.

Student forgotten in DEA holding cell gets $4.1M


SAN DIEGO — A UCSD student scooped up in a drug raid and left in a Drug Enforcement Administration holding cell for 4 1/2 days without food or water will get $4.1 million to settle his claims, his attorneys announced Tuesday.

Daniel Chong, 25, was among seven people detained in an April 21, 2012, raid on a University City home. Chong, an student at UCSD, was handcuffed and put in 5-by-10-foot cell, by an officer who told him, “Hang tight. We’ll come get you in a minute,” his attorney Julia Yoo said.

The door to the cell was not opened again until April 25. Chong had no food water or toilet facilities during that period and he spent the last two days in darkness, Yoo said.

For Congress, ‘it’s classified’ is new equivalent of ‘none of your business’

WASHINGTON — The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reportedly gave its approval last week to an Obama administration plan to provide weapons to moderate rebels in Syria, but how individual members of the committee stood on the subject remains unknown.

There was no public debate and no public vote when one of the most contentious topics in American foreign policy was decided – outside of the view of constituents, who oppose the president’s plan to aid the rebels by 54 percent to 37 percent, according to a Gallup Poll last month.

In fact, ask individual members of the committee, who represent 117 million people in 14 states, how they stood on the plan to use the CIA to funnel weapons to the rebels and they are likely to respond with the current equivalent of “none of your business:” It’s classified.

Ms. Morgan said that she believed the conversation, in which she also threatened to sue the young woman, was off the record.
