Sheryl Sandberg’s senior thesis, overseen by former Clinton staffer Larry Summers, might suggest why Facebook has developed a problem with conservatives. It provides a rare insight into the psychology and politics of a senior executive at one of the most powerful tech companies in the world.

In the thesis, Sandberg uses bizarre, discredited statistics and fashionable but shaky arguments about the “pervasive influence of the patriarchy” to explain domestic violence.

Microsoft Auto-Scheduling Windows 10 Updates

When Microsoft created Windows 10, it tied in numerous monitoring and data collection tools. The operating system is capable of gathering your search history, web usage, Windows Store usage, details of what applications you use, voice recordings, emails, geographic information and just about anything else that is on your PC. This information is gathered in part for improving Windows-based services, but it is also used for market research and advertising purposes.

Because each user on Windows 10 increases the amount of advertising information available to Microsoft, which in turn enables Microsoft to earn more revenue from selling this data, it is not surprising that Microsoft wants everyone to use its new OS.

...

Now, as we near the end of the free upgrade period, Microsoft’s malware-like upgrade system is becoming even more intrusive by autoscheduling upgrades to Windows 10.

Hidden Microphones Exposed As Part of Government Surveillance Program In The Bay Area

Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed.

Imagine standing at a bus stop, talking to your friend and having your conversation recorded without you knowing. It happens all the time, and the FBI doesn’t even need a warrant to do it.

Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations.

Jeff Harp, a KPIX 5 security analyst and former FBI special agent said, “They put microphones under rocks, they put microphones in trees, they plant microphones in equipment. I mean, there’s microphones that are planted in places that people don’t think about, because that’s the intent!”

FBI agents hid microphones inside light fixtures and at a bus stop outside the Oakland Courthouse without a warrant to record conversations, between March 2010 and January 2011.

The SWIFT System: A Potential Weapon in the Hybrid War

The SWIFT system has often been targeted by hackers trying to break into databases and divert money from the accounts of the society’s member banks. Several attempts at security breaches have been documented in just the last few days. In early March, the central bank of Bangladesh reported the disappearance of $81 million of its foreign-exchange reserves [1]. This had gone unnoticed by the IT services at SWIFT and the central bank. An investigation revealed that the hardware and software used to process the central bank’s payment operations left much to be desired. The cyber intruders also turned out to have advanced technical skills. They did not expect the facts of the theft to come to light immediately and assumed that they would have time to either move their spoils somewhere safe or to launder the money.

You Know Those Missing Hillary Emails? Russia Might Leak 20,000 Of Them

Hillary Clinton sits at the center of a raging firestorm concerning her arrangement of a private email account and server set up in her home — from which top secret information may have been deleted. But despite Bernie Sanders’ apparent annoyance with the “damn emails,” the scandal just exponentially intensified, when Judge Andrew Napolitano revealed on Monday that Russia has possession of around 20,000 of Clinton’s emails — leaving open the possibility her deletions might not have been permanent after all.

Adding to the scandal, the official vote has Hillary Clinton winning by 31 votes, but after the vote was conducted a petition was presented with the signature of 64 Bernie Sander supporters saying they were suppressed from being allowed to vote. The response to the petition was to tell the voters to present their complaint at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Kremlin Has Hillary’s Emails

The Kremlin is considering whether or not to release some 20,000 hacked Clinton emails reportedly in its possession.

Russian security services apparently obtained the emails as part of their investigation into the Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer” — now in U.S. custody in relation to the Clinton email scandal.

“There’s a debate going on in the Kremlin between the Foreign Ministry and the Intelligence Services about whether they should release the 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that they have hacked into,” Judge Andrew Napolitano told Megyn Kelly on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this story first appeared, I was concerned because it was sourced to Sorcha Faal, a known disinformation agent (Real name David Booth, who lives near the CIA).

But there seems to be enough independent confirmation to pay attention to this story.

One thing is clear. Guccifer confirmed at least ten foreign IPs were logging into Hillary's server. Ten foreign entities have all the goodies, and will be in a position to blackmail President Hillary.

It is not worth the risk.

Even in the face of the FBI boss scoffing at Hillary Clinton’s description of the “investigation” into her email practices as a “security inquiry,” the head of the Democratic Party is now insisting the front-running Democratic presidential candidate isn’t even a focus of the probe.

“Secretary Clinton isn’t even a target of this inquiry, investigation, whatever ‘I’ word you want to use,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told Fox News on Friday.

The truck is using an infrared ALPR surveillance system which processes multiple license plates simultaneously in a fraction of a second. The system is used for many things, including sniffing out unpaid parking tickets/taxes/fees, stopping drug deals, recovering stolen cars, etc.
But, since it is in Philly — one of the nation’s capitals for civil asset forfeiture — it’s probably the first one.

Leaked Facebook Training Manual Confirms Allegations Of Conservative News Suppression

A report published in the Guardian today includes a training document for Facebook editors that outlines how they should curate the "trending" headlines tool.

Instructions in the documents appear to contradict Facebook's earlier denials of a Gizmodo article that said Facebook editors directly inserted headlines into the trending news widget. It also contradicts what Facebook told Recode last summer.

The guidelines obtained by the Guardian additionally show that editors must select trending news topics from a list of 10 "trusted" news sources that include the New York Times, BBC News, CNN and Fox News. This is likely to make people who are upset about alleged anti-conservative bias that Gizmodo reported on even madder; Fox News looks like the only right-wing outlet on the list.

Despite official insistence that humans will retain a “meaningful” degree of control over autonomous weapon systems, this and other Pentagon documents dated from 2015 to 2016 confirm that US military planners are already developing technologies designed to enable swarms of “self-aware” interconnected robots to design and execute kill operations against robot-selected targets.

New Clinton Emails Reveal Clinton Knew about Security Risk of Private Blackberry, Avoided Use of Secure Phone

Judicial Watch today released 296 pages of new State Department documents, including a February 27, 2009, email in which the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologized to health care activist/physician Mark Hyman for failing to respond to a message because, “no blackberry contact permitted in my office.”

The new documents also contain a February22, 2009, email exchange between Clinton and her then-Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, trying to communicate over a secure line after Clinton returned from a trip (evidently to Asia). Unable to set up a secure communication, Clinton told Mills, “I called ops and they gave me your ‘secure’ cells… but only got a high-pitched whining sound.” When Mills suggested that Clinton try the secure line again, the former secretary wrote back, “I give up. Call me on my home #.”

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China.

The ledger is stored in multiple copies across a large group and changes are sent out to all of them immediately, using a mathematical protocol that makes the ledger tamper-proof.

BEX ALERT - Released Emails Show Use of Unclassified Systems Was Routine

Whatever the disposition of the investigation, the discussion of troops to Bahrain reveals how routinely sensitive information is emailed on unclassified government servers, reflecting what many officials describe as diplomacy in the age of the Internet, especially in urgent, fast-developing situations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times is not allowing comments on this piece of crap, or I would make the comment that unsecured servers are "routinely" used only for unclassified documents. Even the example given involves documents that were not classified at the time they were sent by conventional email, yet the New York Times is trying to equate this to Hillary's situation, to try to defend her.

Simple logic here...

The job of Secretary of State involves handling a lot of classified information. Hillary never used her secure government email account. If she didn't use her private server to handle the classified material (as she claims) ... then what server DID she use? Is there a third system out there?

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

Rivero challenges the NSA

The US Government insists their demand for a ban on strong encryption or back doors into all of our electrinic devices is to stop crime and terror.

But over the course of a year, as documented on this page, What Really Happened issued six encryption challenges based on systems of encryption created and programmed here on an air-gapped computer.

Now, I am not an encryption expert, and only a moderately decent programmer. The NSA would have a strong motive to break my codes to discourage others from creating their own systems of encryption.

None were ever solved.

If I can beat the NSA, it means real criminals and terrorists can defeat the NSA and keep their communications private.

Hence, the real agenda of the government is not to stop crime and terror but to monitor the American people to make sure they are not thinking those double-plus ungood thoughts about how this nation is being run!

Hacker Arrested and Jailed After Exposing Flaws in Election Website

By Claire Bernish

A hacker in Florida exposed security vulnerabilities in one county’s elections web domains so officials could fix the problem — but, instead, he ended up behind bars.

Hacker, David Michael Levin, owner of Vanguard Cybersecurity, was arrested on Wednesday after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement received a referral from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office after his apparently misguided attempt to help prevent election fraud by pointing out online vulnerabilities...

RESEARCHERS CREATE ELECTRONICS THAT CAN DISSOLVE IN YOUR BRAIN

Imagine brain implants that completely dissolve and fade away after a period of time.

That’s just what a team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed. They’ve created sensors, made of layers of molybdenum and silicon, that can monitor brain signals (and even deliver signals), and then melt away without a trace.

The research was published online in the journal Nature Materials, and represents a great forward leap in biosensing technology. According to lead researcher Brian Litt, MD, it bypasses “the risks, cost, and discomfort associated with surgery to extract current devices used for post-operative monitoring.”

Here’s PROOF Hillary lied about being hacked

In other words, the email server that contained the former president’s personal files – including, perhaps, his White House doodles – was the same as the server Clinton used for storing classified government information.

And by releasing the doodles, Lazar lent credence to his claims that he repeatedly broke into the Clintons’ personal server. And Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect classified national security information should lead to criminal charges.

Lazar, apparently, wasn’t the only one to break into the server. He told Fox News last week he saw that the server had been accessed by at least 10 different IP addresses all over the world.

Hillary Clinton has tried to dismiss the hacker’s claim, but the new revelation gives the hacker serious credibility.

Emails From Hillary Clinton’s IT Director at State Department Appear to Be Missing

The State Department said today it can’t find Bryan Pagliano’s emails from the time he served as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s senior information technology staffer during her tenure there.

Pagliano would have been required to turn over any official communications from his work account before he left the government. State Department officials say he had an official email account, but that they can't find any of those records he would have turned over and continue to search for them.

“The Department has searched for Mr. Pagliano’s email pst file and has not located one that covers the time period of Secretary Clinton’s tenure,” State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said today, referencing a file format that holds email.

FLASHBACK - VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

Amazon Targets YouTube With New Online Video Posting Service

Amazon.com Inc. will let people post videos to its website and earn money from advertising, royalties and other sources, putting the company in more-direct competition with Google’s YouTube.

Amazon already offers movies and television programs over the Internet -- including its own original productions -- to compete with Netflix Inc. The new product will let Amazon give consumers more options about what to watch without an upfront fee because many of those posting videos will be paid based on how their content performs. Competing streaming services have been driving up the cost of this material.

JUDICIAL WATCH LAWSUIT UNCOVERS MORE HILLARY CLINTON EMAILS WITHHELD FROM STATE DEPARTMENT

Judicial Watch today released new State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages) that again appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009.

Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response a court order in a May 5,2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department, after it failed to respond to a March 18 FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v.

Why Did NBC News Sit on Explosive Story About Clinton's Alleged Hacked Email Server For Weeks?

According to the NBC News press release, Lazar was interviewed by reporter Cynthia McFadden from a Bucharest prison, where he admitted to also hacking into Clinton’s private e-mail account.

So, it stands to reason that McFadden conducted the interview before he was extradited to the U.S. which means NBC News was sitting on these explosive claims for more than one month. Which raises the question, why would a major news network sit on such an explosive allegation — especially when the claim directly relates to a presidential candidate and the biggest story the 2016 presidential election cycle?

The delay cost them what would’ve been a huge exclusive....We reached out to NBC News for clarification and a spokesman declined to comment at this time.

FBI Makes MASSIVE Move Against Hillary Clinton! It’s Happening!

Unfortunately, President Obama may be working behind the scenes to prevent criminal charges being filed. Hillary Clinton must be reminded that she is not above the law.

And considering the many laws she has broken, the American people deserve to learn the truth about Hillary before the elections in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have no confidence that the FBI will do their job. The FBI have been the protectors of the Clintons going all the way back to the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster and Hillary can blackmail the FBI with that to force their cooperation in more coverups. Already, we see the propaganda coming out that regardless of what Hillary did, she had no intention of doing wrong, therefore she is innocent. That is ridiculous. You probably don't intend to run a red light and kill a pedestrian, but if you do, you will probably go to jail.

In any event, Title 18 includes exposure of state secrets through negligence as a prosecutable crime and we have Hillary's June 17, 2011 email to Jacob Sullivan ordering him to strip the classification headers off of a document and send it to her via non-secure means. It doesn't matter what was in the document or even if Jacob did it nor not. The giving of that order is a violation of Title 18 Section 793.

Hillary's giving that order means she knew she was in possession of classified documents, at a time when the only email server she was using was her private server.

Title 18 also provides that anyone in violation of any section of Title 18 is BANNED FROM PUBLIC OFFICE!

Israel enlists US Homeland Security to gag its own citizens online

There are two faces of Israel. One, which is presented to the world, shows a happy people in a land of contentment. The other, nowadays manifesting itself on Israeli social media, is full of discontent about the corruption and the mistreatment of citizens. Negative opinion polls soon “disappear” and are impossible to trace. This is especially the case where the issues concern the justice system, the welfare authorities or the police.

In Israel, it is a crime to “insult a public official’, even when the “insult” is nothing more than a blog or social media post questioning a decision or action. The fines are high, and those who write can also face a prison sentence of six months. Social media sites are constantly monitored by the authorities and the mere mention of a name can result in an arrest.

Life is becoming dangerous for activists who blog – patriots who advocate reform and campaign for justice by exposing corruption.

Microsoft Confirms 'Free' Windows 10 Will Become Expensive

Has the Windows 10 free upgrade offer been a success? I suspect history will see it as mixed.

On the plus side Microsoft says over 300M PCs now run Windows 10 just 10 months after launch. But on the other Microsoft has taken a $1.5BN hit to give these copies away, adoption hasn’t been greatly faster than Windows 7 and the company has been rightly savaged for some of the sneaky and often downright scandalous tactics it has employed to push users to upgrade.

All in all, I suspect there’s still a lot more to come from Windows 10 both good and bad...

Washington Post BEX - Hillary Clinton is going to be exonerated on the email controversy. It won’t matter.

Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "she didn't mean to do wrong" defense will not fly. If you run a red light and kill a pedestrian, you still go to jail even though you did not mean to do it. And, under Title 18, revealing secrets through negligence is still a crime.

On June 17, 2011, Hillary ordered her subordinate, Jacob Sullivan, to strip the classification headers from a document and send it via non-secure means. That is a violation of Title 18 Section 793. It doesn't matter what was in the document. It doesn't even matter of Jacob carried out the order. It is Hillary's issuing of the order that is a violation!

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

This is a cover-up, no different than when Washington Post Managing Editor Bob Kaiser spiked the story about drug running out of Mena, Arkansas by the Bush and Clinton White Houses, as part oif the Iran-Contra scandal!

Survival Communications After a Collapse: “Pringles Can And Broadband Routers Could Create a WiFi Network”

Your best option, then, may be to set up your own community computer network – and the most sensible technology would be Wi-Fi, as the components are easily available. “You could loot a PC World for broadband routers and then hit a garage or supermarket for some Pringles cans,” says Bloch. “With those, you can probably build a reasonable network across a scorched suburb.”

Why a Pringle can? Well, it can be used to create a cantenna which would be capable of boosting a Wi-Fi signal from your computer. “Some students in Kansas made a cantenna that transmitted over 100 miles a few years ago,” says Bloch.

FBI Seeks To Keep Its Nationwide Biometric Database A Secret From Citizens

By Nicholas West

The FBI’s Next Generation Identification Biometrics Database went live nationwide in 2014 without much fanfare from the general public. Naturally, establishment media wasn’t there to give attention to the massive endeavor, even though from its inception it threatened the privacy of every single American...

Over the ensuing years, the prevalence of biometrics has only increased in everything from banking, to drones, to student IDs, to facial recognition billboards in public space, to voice recognition security. At this point it is unclear just how many biometric images might be stored in the database now that there are even more sources from which to cull data. And the FBI is would like to keep it that way….

Updategate: Microsoft suggests updating to Windows 10 to patch Windows 7

So now, if you have one of the affected motherboard and you keep your security updates automatic like wot Microsoft recommends, then your machine will stop working properly.

We should add it's not permanently bricked, but it will take some mucking about in the BIOS to fix and that's a pain even for an experienced computer user.

Microsoft has, by offering a workaround, suggested heavily that it won't be fixing the problem, though we have asked the question, so expect a response in about a fortnight.

But the real kicker is this piece of advice: "Note The Secure Boot feature is supported in Windows 10. To learn more about the security advantages of this feature and about the upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 10, go to the following Windows website"
