FBI To Clear Clinton by Democratic Convention

The talk behind the curtain is that the fix with the Justice Department and Obama is in. Proof that the whole EMAIL scandal with Clinton is already fixed will be that the the FBI will clear her by the Democratic Convention the week of July 25th. Once that takes place, this will confirm this is a political decision if the FBI times it with the convention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The above is proof that Hillary committed a felony violation of Title 18 Section 793. If the FBI refuses to recommend indictment, they are guilty of obstruction of justice. If the FBI recommends indictment and Loretta Lynch refuses, then she is guilty of obstruction of justice.

As Brexit dominates news, Investigatory Powers Bill sneaks in under the radar

Days after Britain and the world reeled from the result of the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union, it’s back to business as usual for the House of Lords. This week the Investigatory Powers Bill was given its second reading, and it’s interesting to see how their Lordships approached scrutinising the wide-ranging powers of this controversial bill.

The Investigatory Powers Bill is intended to create a comprehensive framework that governs the way police, security and intelligence agencies intercept, store and use personal data. The current provisions are scattered across many different pieces of legislation, and do not always reflect current practice or technology. The bill goes beyond telephone records to include what it defines as internet connection records, a log of visits to websites, and the use of apps such as Apple’s iMessage, and WhatsApp, owned by Facebook.

Hillary Clinton met with the FBI on Saturday as part of the investigation into her use of a private email server while leading the State Department, her campaign said.

“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,” Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement. “She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.”

DOJ Walks Back Loretta Lynch’s Promise to Honor FBI’s Clinton Investigation Recommendation

While Lynch said she would accept any recommendation from FBI Director James Comey (without recusing herself from the case), a DoJ spokeswoman says Lynch will be “the ultimate decider.”

How everyone looks bad because Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch

Bill Clinton has made a mess. It was either out of foolish indifference or plain foolishness, but it has created a terrible moment for his wife and the Democrats, and for President Obama and perceptions of the integrity of his administration.

Clinton’s private, unplanned meeting with Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch at the Phoenix airport last week, coming at a time when the Justice Department should be nearing completion of its examination of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for her emails as secretary of state, will inevitably — and negatively — affect public attitudes about that investigation.

Facebook CAN track you offline: Site wins Belgian privacy case over following logged out users

The social media site has won a legal battle against the Belgian data protection authority over tracking its users while they are not logged into Facebook.

Originally, the regulator had won its case and ordered the social network to stop tracking non-members when they visited publicly available Facebook pages.

But the Brussels Appeals Court dismissed the case, on the grounds that the regulator has no jurisdiction over Facebook Inc, which has its European headquarters in Ireland.

Hillary Clinton's emails packed with America's secrets were stored by company 'wide open to hackers' and run by 'morons' whistleblowers reveal

A Daily Mail Online investigation has found that a second firm - hired to store a back-up of Clinton’s secret server - was so lax in its security employees failed to change passwords frequently and left computers logged in, unattended for extended periods and its own clients stumbled upon other clients data.

Datto Inc, the company in question, was hired to store Hilary’s emails by Platte River, the mom-and-pop company contracted to maintain her 'homebrew' email system.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online on condition of anonymity, one former employee at Datto, said the company was woefully exposed to being hacked.

'If you're talking about high-level data security, at the political, presidential level, the security level of data [at Datto] hired by Platte River, was nowhere near something that could have been protected from a good hacker that knows how to spread out their points at which to infiltrate,' he said.

A Brazilian judge has blocked $6 million in Facebook funds, says report

More fallout from WhatsApp's legal fight

A Brazilian judge has ordered a block on 19.5 million real (roughly $6 million) owned by Facebook, according to a new report by O Globo’s G1 news service. It’s the latest move in an ongoing legal fight with WhatsApp, which saw days-long telecom blackouts of the service in both May and December.

Brazilian courts have repeatedly ordered WhatsApp to turn over messages and data related to a drug case. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption means that data is inaccessible even to WhatsApp’s own employees, making it impossible for the company to comply with the order. The result has been a standoff between WhatsApp and the Brazilian judiciary, which has significantly hampered the company’s ability to operate.

Facebook allowed to track users, even when not logged in

In November 2015 a Belgian court ruled that it was illegal for Facebook to track Internet surfers who didn’t have an account or were logged into the social network, and faced a fine of €250,000 per day if it didn’t comply.

However today that ruling has been overturned as the Brussels court of appeals court decided the Belgian CPP (Commission for the Protection of Privacy) has no jurisdiction over Facebook.

This is the first known fatality in just over 130 million miles where Autopilot was activated. Among all vehicles in the US, there is a fatality every 94 million miles. Worldwide, there is a fatality approximately every 60 million miles. It is important to emphasize that the NHTSA action is simply a preliminary evaluation to determine whether the system worked according to expectations.

Atty Gen. Lynch Facing Calls to Recuse Herself From Email Investigation After Meeting With Bill Clinton in Phoenix

News of a private meeting between U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former president Bill Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport has prompted renewed calls from political pundits and legal eagles for the AG to recuse herself from the Clinton email investigation.

The 30-minute meeting took place Monday evening at Sky Harbor International Airport on board a parked private plane mere hours before the public release of the Benghazi report.

This comes as the FBI and Lynch's Justice Department are investigating Hillary Clinton’s highly problematic and probably illegal use of a private email server while secretary of State.

Hillary – Has She Compromised the Country?

A very serious issue is starting to rise behind the curtain. Obama is blasting Trump as part of some global elitist group that does not exist outside of those in Obama’s camp who subordinate the people to government. Indeed, it was Obama who played the role of political elitist by interfering in Britain quite disgracefully. He told the Brits to get to “the back of the queue” when Britain is America’s strongest and oldest ally. If telling Britain to surrender its sovereignty to Brussels was not a global elitist attempt to end democracy in Europe then nothing is. That is the equivalent of the US surrendering its sovereignty to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the strongest reasons to vote against Hillary is that she is wide open to blackmail by all those nations that bought favors from her, or copied damning emails off of her server.

We need a President who works for the American people, and is not a slave to foreign control!

Leaked Global “Terrorism” Database Reveals 2.2 Million People Tracked by Intel Agencies

The security researcher says the database is from mid-2014 and contains millions of “heightened-risk individuals and organizations,” which it places in one or more of a number of categories, including terrorism, money laundering, organized crime, bribery, corruption, and “other unsavory activities,” according to reports.

25,000 malware-riddled CCTV cameras form network-crashing botnet

A massive network of hacked CCTV cameras is being used to bring down computers around the world, we're told.

The unusual 25,000-strong botnet was apparently spotted by US security outfit Sucuri when it investigated an online assault against an ordinary jewelry store.

The shop's website was flooded offline after drowning in 35,000 junk HTTP requests per second. When Sucuri attempted to thwart the network tsunami, the botnet stepped up its output and dumped more than 50,000 HTTP requests per second on the store's website.

When the security biz dug into the source of the duff packets, it found they were all coming from internet-connected CCTV cameras – devices that had been remotely hijacked by miscreants to attack other systems.


With the Internet of Things growing, this problem is only going to get worse.

Researchers Make Malware That Steals Data by Spinning Your Computer's Fans

A team of researchers claim they've developed malware that can extract data from an isolated computer with no internet connection, camera or audio hardware—all by using sounds generated by the machine's processor and cooling fans.

In a new paper, researchers at Israel's Ben Gurion University describe an attack meant to be used against isolated or “air-gapped” machines that wouldn't normally be accessible. While others have demonstrated ways of doing this using ultrasonic waves coming from a machine's speakers, the method the Israeli researchers describe works by controlling and listening to the speed of the machine's fans and CPU, and doesn't require it to have any speakers, cameras or other hardware.

New Clinton Email Smoking Guns

Here are the records:

A. March 17, 2009 memorandum prepared by S/ES-IRM staff regarding communications equipment in the Secretary’s New York residence identified a server located in the basement. (This email shows early on that the Obama State Department was very much aware of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, down to its very location in her house!)

B. In November 2010, Secretary Clinton and her Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations discussed the fact that Secretary Clinton’s emails to Department employees were not being received. The Deputy Chief of Staff emailed the Secretary that “we should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.” In response, the Secretary wrote, “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.” (This is the smoking gun email that Mrs. Clinton evidently withheld, according to the AP.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In order to go on using her private server, the security systems on the State Department computers had to be disabled, leaving them open to hackers stealing US secrets!

Clinton Email Scandal: Latest Batch Exposes Two Big New Problems For Hillary

Another email released this week reveals that State had set up an official government email account for Clinton to use, and then gives a clue as to why Clinton never used it.

"You should be aware," the email says, "that any email would go through the Department's infrastructure and subject to FOIA searches."

Meanwhile, other emails show that not only did Clinton's unsecured private email system risk exposing sensitive and at times highly classified information to outsiders, it forced the State Department to compromise its own security to accommodate her.

The FBI Criminal Investigation into Clinton’s Email Server: It’s Time for Hillary to Concede to Bernie Sanders.

Former U.S. attorney general Michael Mukasey wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal back in January, claiming the charges were justified. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the retired chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told CNN‘s Jake Tapper that it was time for Clinton to drop out of the race back in February, long before the current surge in support for Sanders.

“If it were me, I would have been out the door and probably in jail… This over-classification excuse is not an excuse. If it’s classified, it’s classified.”

Goodman didn’t mince words on what many Sanders’ supporters have claimed was the DNC’s decision to anoint Hillary Clinton the Democratic Party nominee long before the primaries even began, regardless of who ran against her or what skeletons might lurk in her proverbial closet. He also cited her extreme negative favorability rating and how she fares far worse head-to-head with Trump in polls than her rival Sanders.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday condemned the release of more than 250,000 confidential U.S. diplomatic documents by the Internet website WikiLeaks. The leaks come ahead of Clinton's trip to Central Asia and the Middle East.

Clinton told reporters that she would not comment on or confirm what she said are allegedly stolen State Department cables. The documents appeared on the WikiLeaks website on Sunday and are the subject of countless news stories around the world.

"But I can say that the United States deeply regrets the disclosure of any information that was intended to be confidential, including private discussions between counterparts or our diplomats' personal assessments and observations," said Hillary Clinton.

Former Secretary Hillary Clinton failed to turn over a copy of a key message involving problems caused by her use of a private homebrew email server, the State Department confirmed Thursday. The disclosure makes it unclear what other work-related emails may have been deleted by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

The email was included within messages exchanged Nov. 13, 2010, between Clinton and one of her closest aides, Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin. At the time, emails sent from Clinton's BlackBerry device and routed through her private server in the basement of her New York home were being blocked by the State Department's spam filter. A suggested remedy was for Clinton to obtain a email account.

How Risky are the World Economic Forum’s top 10 Emerging Technologies for 2016?

By Andrew Maynard, Arizona State University

Take an advanced technology. Add a twist of fantasy. Stir well, and watch the action unfold.

It’s the perfect recipe for a Hollywood tech-disaster blockbuster. And clichéd as it is, it’s the scenario that we too often imagine for emerging technologies. Think superintelligent machines, lab-bred humans, the ability to redesign whole species – you get the picture.

The reality, of course, is that the real world is usually far more mundane: less “zombie apocalypse” and more “teens troll supercomputer; teach it bad habits.”

Looking through this year’s crop of Top Ten Emerging Technologies from the World Economic Forum (WEF), this is probably a good thing...

FLASHBACK - Clinton Signed NDA Laying Out Criminal Penalties for Mishandling of Classified Info

As the nation’s chief diplomat, Hillary Clinton was responsible for ascertaining whether information in her possession was classified and acknowledged that “negligent handling” of that information could jeopardize national security, according to a copy of an agreement she signed upon taking the job.

A day after assuming office as secretary of state, Clinton signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement that laid out criminal penalties for “any unauthorized disclosure” of classified information.

Experts have guessed that Clinton signed such an agreement, but a copy of her specific contract, obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute through an open records request and shared with the Washington Free Beacon, reveals for the first time the exact language of the NDA.

Mobile ad firm fined $950k for secretly collecting Americans’ location data via WiFi

A mobile advertising company has been fined $950,000 for using WiFi signals to collect the location data of hundreds of millions of unsuspecting consumers, including children. The company used private location info to send geo-targeted advertising.

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) estimated that Singapore-based InMobi reached more than one billion devices worldwide, accessing consumers via thousands of popular applications. Nearly 20 percent of those affected are located in North America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Odd how the US Government can go after a foreign ad company but won't do anything about Hillary's private email server!

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton has endangered us all

As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton dealt with classified information every day, some of it SCI and SAP. Yet, she claims that she never sent or received any information marked classified at the time she had her hands on it. How would she do business as America’s chief diplomat without ever sending or receiving classified information? What she was probably doing was telling her staff to delete the classification levels from the top and bottom of each email and page and then send them to her. To remove the classification levels from documents is a felony.

The other part of her argument that is ludicrous is her consistent statement that she never handled information on her non-secure server that was classified at the time. She knows that to have done so, is a felony. Classified information is not an egg. It doesn’t incubate then hatch and then suddenly become classified one day. It’s either classified from day one or it isn’t.

Google, Inc., isn't just the world's biggest purveyor of information; it is also the world's biggest censor. The company maintains at least nine different blacklists that impact our lives, generally without input or authority from any outside advisory group, industry association or government agency. Google is not the only company suppressing content on the internet. Reddit has frequently been accused of banning postings on specific topics, and a recent report suggests that Facebook has been deleting conservative news stories from its newsfeed, a practice that might have a significant effect on public opinion – even on voting. Google, though, is currently the biggest bully on the block.

Emails: Key security features disabled on Clinton's server

State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem with then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features that left the server more vulnerable to hackers, according to emails released Wednesday.

Just weeks later, according to previously disclosed emails, hackers attacked the server, forcing Clinton's staff to shut it down. The next day, one of Clinton's closest aides, Huma Abedin, wrote to other high ranking staff: "Don't email hrc (Clinton) anything sensitive. I can explain more in person."

Clinton IT specialist invokes 5th more than 125 times in deposition

Hillary Clinton IT specialist Bryan Pagliano invoked the Fifth more than 125 times during a 90-minute, closed-door deposition Wednesday with the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, a source with the group told Fox News.

The official said Pagliano was working off an index card and read the same crafted statement each time.

“It was a sad day for government transparency,” the Judicial Watch official said, adding they asked all their questions and Pagliano invoked the Fifth Amendment right not to answer them.

Pagliano was a central figure in the set-up and management of Clinton’s personal server she used exclusively for government business while secretary of state. The State Department inspector general found Clinton violated government rules with that arrangement.

Earlier this week I got knocked out by some pretty serious food poisoning. The few times I would try to do some work or pop in on Twitter, all I was seeing was people mocking the London Review of Books' somewhat insane 35,000-word-long profile of Craig Wright, the guy who earlier this year claimed to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. While he even convinced Gavin Andresen (the guy who really turned Nakamoto's original work into actual Bitcoin), many others quickly pointed out that Wright's "proof" appeared to be a giant scam. Why write a 35,000-word profile on a guy who isn't Satoshi Nakamoto? I don't know, but thankfully the food poisoning and the few snarky tweets I saw saved me from digging into the entire thing and wasting an afternoon. Fusion posted a much shorter summary of the piece, in case you're wondering.

The Roots of Today’s Tyranny: Total Information Awareness

By Derrick Broze

To understand the roots of the oppression, erosion of liberties, and invasion of privacy that has become the new norm for Americans, we must go back to the days following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

Immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was promising Americans that he would exact revenge on those who dare attack the empire. Dubya’s program of “Shock and Awe” gave the American public an upfront look at what the U.S. military was prepared to do to the enemies of “freedom and democracy.” The bombing of Iraq was only the beginning of a larger conflict that the Bush Administration dubbed “The Global War on Terror.”

The War on Terror did not end in the physical battlefield, however...

Judge halts Clinton email lawsuit, for now

A federal judge has put on hold a lawsuit related to Hillary Clinton's private email server, rejecting both the Justice Department's bid to resolve the case in the government's favor and a conservative group's demand to force the State Department to turn over more information about the issue.

In staying the Freedom of Information Act suit Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton cited ongoing discovery in two other cases filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. In one of those cases, several top aides to Clinton have given depositions or are scheduled to give depositions before the end of this month.

In the suit Walton halted Tuesday, Judicial Watch had sought details on why Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy and former State Department Legal Adviser Harold Koh corresponded with Clinton at her private address, but apparently did not ensure her emails were searched in response to pending FOIA requests.

The IT tech who set up the private email server through which Hillary Clinton conducted official government business while she was secretary of state, including top secret communications, will be deposed in a lawsuit.

But the video interview Wednesday in a case brought by Judicial Watch likely won’t yield much, if any, information.

It’s because Bryan Pagliano has said he will plead the Fifth and not answer questions, even though he’s already been granted an immunity deal.

Ed Klein, author of anti-Clinton books: FBI sources believe Hillary is ‘guilty as sin’ on emails

Author Ed Klein, known for his anti-Clinton books, says he has Justice Department sources who think Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton clearly broke the law by using a secret email account during her time as secretary of state.

Mr. Klein said it’s his understanding from his Justice Department and FBI sources “that they believe she’s guilty as sin.”

“I think we’re dealing with a very volatile situation on the Democratic side,” Mr. Klein said on “Tim Constantine’s Capitol Hill Show.”

Last week, the General Accountability Office (GAO) released a report describing the FBI’s facial recognition systems and powers. The report revealed that the FBI has agreements with 16 states to grant the FBI’s Facial Analysis, Comparison, and Evaluation (FACE) Services Unit access to driver’s license images, and that the Bureau is in active negotiation with 18 states to do the same. Massachusetts is one of the states reportedly negotiating such an agreement.

DNC Researched Clinton Speeches, Travel Records

Along with Clinton’s tax returns, personal financial disclosure reports, and U.S. Senate travel records, the DNC dossier included copies of contract documents related to the presidential candidate’s paid speeches.

In addition to a “standard” $225,000 fee, Clinton required a “chartered roundtrip private jet” that needed to be a Gulfstream 450 or a larger aircraft. Depending on its outfitting, the Gulfstream jet, which costs upwards of $40 million, can seat 19 passengers and “sleeps up to six.” Clinton’s contract also stipulated that speech hosts had to pay for separate first class or business airfare for three of her aides.

As for lodging, Clinton required “a presidential suite” and up to “three (3) adjoining or contiguous rooms for her travel aides” and up to two extra rooms for advance staff. The host was also responsible for the Clinton travel party’s ground transportation, meals, and “phone charges/cell phones.”

Clinton Broke Laws Obama Has Been Prosecuting People For Breaking

One of the Clinton campaign's primary defenses so far has been to claim that the law regarding the handling of classified material is being wrongly implemented, and that, in practice, information is being overclassified.

This is overclassification run amok. We adamently oppose the complete blocking of the release of these emails.

-- Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) January 29, 2016

That is a very sound and reasonable position. Unfortunately, it stands diametrically opposed to the position the Obama Justice Department has taken. In what many refer to as The War On Whistleblowers, the Obama Administration has investigated and prosecuted those who give embarrassing and politically damaging information to the press for violating the law concerning the handling of classified information.

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.
Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The change in Donald Trump's campaign manager has led to speculation that Trump will be more aggressive in going after Hilary Clinton's scandals. As this article illustrates, Trump has a lot of facts to work with!

It’s not a report in one file, it’s a big folder of docs devoted to Hillary Clinton that I found on the DNC server.

The DNC collected all info about the attacks on Hillary Clinton and prepared the ways of her defense, memos, etc., including the most sensitive issues like email hacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This dump includes the emails proving the corporate media is trying to win the White House for Hillary. It also demonstrates that Hillary's computers are not secure. And it wasn't Russia that did the hack!

What Could Go Wrong? Crime Fighting Robots Now Equipped with Self-Defense Instincts

By Claire Bernish

Once thought to be too approachable for their own good — as in, able to efficaciously perform the tasks they’ve been designed to do — robots are now being programmed with self-defense capabilities.

Now, robots which, say, patrol for criminal or suspicious activity come with a blend of humanoid characteristics and self-defense programs which prevent them from being perceived as too cute — or too menacing.

“Because of all the doomsday scenarios people imagine with robots, their makers have to insert some cuteness,” explained Golden Krishna, a designer with Alphabet’s Google, as reported by the Wall Street Journal...

With record-setting heat and air conditioning demand expected in Southern California, the state’s power grid operator issued a so-called “flex alert,” urging consumers to conserve energy to help prevent rotating power outages – which could occur regardless.
