Intelligence act will protect CIA agents who ‘commit war crimes,’ whistleblower Kiriakou tells RT

A new US bill would make it illegal to reveal the identity of a covert agent, even after their retirement or death, if it becomes law. Former CIA officer, and whistleblower, John Kiriakou told RT that it will protect wrongdoers.

The 2020 Intelligence Authorization bill passed the US House of Representatives last week, and will become law once agreed upon by the House and Senate. Aside from funding the US’ intelligence agencies for the forthcoming year, a provision in the act would dramatically expand a 1982 law that makes it a criminal offense to disclose the identities of covert officers.

Our Ruling Elites Have No Idea How Much We Want to See Them All in Prison Jumpsuits

Our Ruling Elites have no idea how many of us already want to see them all in prison jumpsuits, and they also have no idea how fast the moral revulsion with their corrupt "leadership" might spread. Scanning the distracted, consumerist rabble from the great heights of their wealth and power, they reckon the capacity for moral outrage is limited, leaving them safe from any domestic crusade.

Just Released: Study Concludes White Police Officers Are Not More Likely To Shoot Black Citizens

White police officers are not more likely to shoot minorities than their non-white counterparts, according to a new study.

“If anything, black officers are more likely to shoot black citizens,” Dr. Joseph Cesario, co-author and professor of psychology at Michigan State University, wrote in the report. “But this is because black officers are drawn from the same population that they police. So, the more black citizens there are in a community, the more black police officers there are.”

The “systematic nationwide study” from MSU and University of Maryland — described as the first of its kind — debunks the commonly-held belief that white police officers unfairly target black and brown citizens in use of lethal force.

A flurry of media reports over the span of a few years and the efforts of two major media outlets, the UK’s Guardian and the Washington Post, roiled both the nation and the political theater.

New High School Textbook Describes Trump as Mentally Ill, Supporters as Racist

“Let’s be clear: This is overt political propaganda being scooped into the most capable students minds under the guise of education. Even if they don’t accept its messages entirely, studying this wastes time that young people deserve to be spending getting actually educated.”

If progressives really wanted to reduce carbon emissions in America, they would cut off power to their own filthy liberal cities

For all the talk of “climate crisis” and “we’re all gonna die if we don’t stop global warming,” it turns out that city-dwelling liberals use far more energy than conservative, rural Americans.

Constitutional Carry Works in Arizona: Armed 19-Year-Old Shoots, Kills, Carjacker

On 17 July, at bout 1:30 a.m. in South Phoenix, Arizona, there was an attempted carjacking. The suspects may have thought the selected victim would be an easy target, because he was a teenager. It did not turn out that way. In Arizona, there is respect for the Second Amendment. Eighteen, Nineteen, and Twenty-year-old citizens are not prohibited from carrying guns or from carrying them in vehicles. The perpetrators in this attempted crime made a poor choice in the victim selection process. For the knife-man, it was a life ending one.

The Paradox of the Lucky Rabbit's Foot: Using Bad Omens to Create Good Luck

In the list of traditional lucky charms or tokens, the rabbit foot ranks up there with four-leaf clovers and horseshoes, but it's considerably more macabre. Why did people start carrying severed rabbit limbs around in the first place? The answer is much more complicated than one would think. While rabbits have long been cherished by cultures around the world, the rabbit's foot talisman comes to us via African-American slaves in the 19th-century American South. According to folklore, as many bad luck symbols as possible must align to make the rabbit's foot a powerful token of good luck.

Chelsea Clinton denies she was ever close friends with Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged ‘madam’

Since Jeffrey Epstein’s latest arrest on sex trafficking charges, a who’s who of the rich and powerful — notably Donald Trump, Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton — have rushed to downplay their associations with the financier who is accused of abusing underaged girls.

Now Chelsea Clinton has joined her ex-president father on this who’s who list. Her representative issued a statement to Politico over the weekend denying reports that the former First Daughter was close friends with Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and the alleged “madam” who has been accused of helping him procure underaged girls for sex

Black helicopters over DC? Pentagon accidentally reveals ‘classified’ domestic Black Hawk mission

The US Army apparently plans to swarm the nation’s capital region with Black Hawk helicopters as part of an ongoing “classified flight mission” that the Pentagon accidentally exposed while requesting funds from Congress.

“Without additional funding, the Army will not be able to perform this classified mission,” the Pentagon begged, asking for an additional $1.55 million to pay for air crews and maintenance for 10 Black Hawks to be run out of a base near Washington, DC. The demand is part of a larger wish-list to “reprogram” some $2.5 billion in Defense Department funds to “high priority” programs.

The mission is secret enough to require a “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” (SCIF) to be built at Davison Army Airfield at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, 20 miles from the capital. SCIFs are ultra-secure facilities that allow their occupants to handle classified material without concern for electronic eavesdropping or other interception.

The ultimate disguise? New concept glasses make the wearer undetectable to facial recognition software and could help protect privacy from prying cameras

The world's first light blocking glasses have been created to make the wearer unrecognisable to even the most advanced facial recognition software.

The pioneering Reflectacles IRpair act as a shield to make it impossible for smartphones or CCTV cameras to capture a person's identity.

They do so by turning the eye area 'black' and invisible to any form of technology, reflecting infrared beams from any source and subsequently distorting facial data.

Equifax settlement for data breach will only cost it $4 per person

A court will need to approve the arrangement. If cleared, it'll represent the largest data breach settlement in history, according to the New York Attorney General's office.

While that sounds significant, there are concerns that the payout will be trivial compared to the impact on the 143 million affected people. As Fast Company explained, the $575 million minimum amounts to just over $4 per victim -- that wouldn't even begin to cover the damage if a fraudster exploited sensitive data like Social Security and credit card numbers. New Jersey Representative Frank Pallone said the figure "shows the limitations" of the FTC's ability to demand strong punishment and compensation. While Equifax may be more secure than it was in 2017, it's not necessarily accepting the full consequences of its past actions.
