WikiLeaks releases secret TISA docs: The more evil sibling of TTIP and TPP

WikiLeaks has released 17 secret documents from the negotiations of the global Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), which have been taking place behind closed doors, largely unnoticed, since 2013. The main participants are the United States, the European Union, and 23 other countries including Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Taiwan and Israel, which together comprise two-thirds of global GDP.

Secret Aerial FBI Program Uncovered By 23-Year-Old Journalist

The FBI has admitted to flying secret surveillance flights over American cities in recent weeks.

The FBI is now acknowledging that they are the ones gathering the surveillance and that everything being gathered is for ongoing investigations. Richards isn’t so sure about that, and he is working on a follow-up story.

“I have been getting a lot of email and messages on Twitter and elsewhere from people who are interested,” he said.

The FBI isn’t saying which investigations this plane’s surveillance is linked to or what kind of data it’s collecting.

The agency admits the planes can be equipped to identify thousands of people on the ground through their cell phones, even if they’re indoors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The first thing that comes to mind is a test of a system to locate someone via their cell phone even if the cell phone network has been shut off during an uprising!

So, if you are doing something the government doesn't like, and the phones are not working anyway, duct tape the phone to a stray dog!

Idiotic CIA Director says debating mass surveillance aids terrorism

Whether or not it’s disclosures of classified information, or whether it’s changes in the law and policies, they’re looking for the seams to operate within,” he added. “This is something that we can’t afford to deal with right now, because if you look at the horrific terrorist attacks and violence that’s being perpetrated around the globe, we need to keep our country safe.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the spying hasn't actually cracked any cases (FBI and DOJ) and TSA hasn't yet found a terrorist, please explain h9ow a debate on said unconstitutional actions helps terrorism? One more thing. The recent test of TSA showed 95% of the bombs and guns got through. With a high failure rate like that, there is only one explanation for why there hasn't been a terrorist attack; there are no real terrorists, only the phonies created by the government to scare us all into pouring our money and our children's blood into the war machine.

Texas has just taken it up a notch, with a high profile move to keep its gold holdings at home for safe keeping and strong collateral.

Senator: Use RICO Laws to Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

That's right -- a sitting U.S. Senator is suggesting using RICO laws should be applied to global warming skeptics. Courts have been defining RICO down for some time and in ways that aren't particularly helpful. In 1994, the Supreme Court ruled RICO statutes could be applied to pro-life activists on the grounds that interstate commerce can be affected even when the organization being targeted doesn't have economic motives.

Obviously, there's a lot of money hanging in the balance with regard to energy policy. But when does coordinating "a wide range of activities, including political lobbying, contributions to political candidates, and a large number of communication and media efforts" go from basic First Amendment expression to racketeering?

Never Mind FIFA, How about a Crackdown on the Banksters?

FIFA boss Sepp Blatter’s sudden resignation this week only days after being re-elected shows that the US campaign to bust the football federation over alleged financial corruption is probably going to intensify during the weeks and months ahead. Blatter had been re-elected for the fifth time last Friday as the federation’s president. He had earlier brushed off calls for his resignation from the American and British governments, amid a storm of media allegations over corruption at the World Cup organising body. Now only four days after being re-elected, the FIFA chief executive is quitting, saying somewhat cryptically that he does not have a sufficient mandate in the world of football to continue at the helm of the organisation.

As Sputnik News reports, before Americans applaud a minor step toward transparency, Paul warns that they should recognize the corrosive nature of the CIA, "They are a secret government," operating way above the law, and are "way out of control."

In a world gone mad, adrift on banal seas,
For all who feel that lies have had their season,
And whose Hearts Cry Out instead for Honesty,
For all the weary souls grown bored with dreaming,
Whose thirst for Beauty and for Knowledge goes unslaked,
For all who want to wake from what is dreaming,
To know what’s Real, and what is Real to embrace.
For all who’ve watched with mounting horror,
Evil’s reign upon this world grow ever-clear,
For all who’ve prayed in vain, Emancipators,
Wielding Swords of Truth and laughing without fear.”

Sheriff Victor Hill headed to Israel

Sheriff Victor Hill, who is facing misdemeanor charges in connection with the recent shooting of a real estate agent in Gwinnett County, is headed to Israel later this month.

Gwinnett District Attorney Danny Porter said he was notified about two weeks ago of the Clayton County sheriff’s travel plans in an email from Hill’s attorney. The email also noted that any money Hill earned from the trip would go to pay for the medical bills of Gwenevere McCord who was allegedly shot May 3 by Hill at a model home in Gwinnett. Hill and McCord have said the shooting was an accident. The email did not state how long Hill would be out of the country.

“He had a pre-planned trip. I don’t really sign off on it,” Porter told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday. “There’s no restrictions on his bond that keeps him from being able to go. I don’t have any say one way or the other.

Wall Street Banker Deaths Continue; Where Are the Serious Investigations?

Last Thursday, 29-year old Thomas J. Hughes, later described by his brother as “one of the happiest people I know,” allegedly took his life by jumping from a luxury apartment building at 1 West Street in Manhattan. Before any serious investigation had taken place, the New York tabloids had dismissed the matter as a suicide. Hughes was an investment banker on Wall Street.

In any serious investigation, law enforcement is required to look at any potential motive for foul play. But when it comes to serial deaths among Wall Street bankers and technology personnel, occurring repeatedly over the last 18 months in highly unusual circumstances, the deaths are almost instantaneously labeled non-suspicious by the police. But there are two glaring motives for foul-play in almost all of these deaths involving Wall Street or global banks.

Washington Blows Itself Up With Its Own Bomb. US Strategy Backfires

These are sad days in Washington and Wall Street. The once unchallenged sole Superpower at the collapse of the Soviet Union some quarter century ago is losing its global influence so rapidly that most would not have predicted anything comparable six months ago. The key actor who has catalyzed a global defiance of Washington as Sole Superpower is Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President. This is the real background to the surprise visit of US Secretary of State John Kerry to Sochi to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and then a four hour talk with “Satan” himself, Putin.

Far from a “reset” try, Washington’s hapless geopolitical strategists are desperately trying to find a better way to bring the Russian Bear to her knees.

JPMorgan Tech Workers Have New Conspiracy Theories

The fact that JPMorgan Chase holds an estimated $179 billion in life insurance on its workers, and in some cases, prior workers, whose death benefit pays to the bank not the family of the employee, has raised concerns of more than just trading conspiracies at JPMorgan Chase.

Now, according to Sarah Butcher at EFinancialCareers, at least two executives at JPMorgan have forbidden their technology workers from explaining exactly what they do at the bank on their LinkedIn profiles. One tech worker imagines that it’s a plot to restrict their ability to market their skills to prospective competitors as JPMorgan moves tech workers from the glitter of London to cheaper corporate digs in Bournemouth, England or Glasgow, Scotland. Says one worker, according to Butcher, “We’ve been joking that the plan is to make us technologists invisible in the market and then forcing us to move to Bournemouth or Glasgow.”

From a libertarian perspective, it is clear Rand Paul can't be trusted on any issue and I really feel sorry for you supporters that have to come up with ever more absurd defenses of Rand.

Report: NYC Cops Arrested Men for ‘Manspreading’ on the Subway.

New York police allegedly arrested two men for “manspreading” (sitting with their legs far apart) on the subway, according to a report entitled “That’s How They Get You” released by the Police Reform Organizing Project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The revival of 90s feminist extremism is already getting into ridiculous levels. For those who are too young to remember, the 90s gender feminist movement spawned the meme that all men are rapists, and militant feminists sought not equality of the sexes, but a reversal of roles. Basically, it was non-stop male-bashing, and a hijacking of the original equity-feminism as detailed by Christine Hobbs Sommers' book, "Who Stole Feminism." At one point male-only curfews were suggested, along with the dictum that men should always cross the street when they saw a woman approaching so that she could avoid being frightened by the possibility of being raped. It did get out of control.

Hillary Clinton is betting her ascendency to the White House on what her supporters call "The Vagina Vote"; meaning that all American women will vote for Hillary purely because she is a woman. To bolster that strategy, we are seeing a replay of feminist extremism, and in this case, the idea that a man with his legs apart, although fully clothed and not indicating a sexual interest in a woman, is now offensive and politically incorrect!

THE WAR ON CASH: YOUR DEPOSIT AT THE BANK CAN BE CONVERTED TO EQUITY IF A CRISIS HITS

The financial system is predominantly comprised of digital money. Actual physical Dollars bills and coins only amount to $1.36 trillion. This is only a little over 10% of the $10 trillion sitting in bank accounts. And it’s a tiny fraction of the $20 trillion in stocks, $38 trillion in bonds and $58 trillion in credit instruments floating around the system.

Suffice to say, if a significant percentage of people ever actually moved their money into physical cash, it could very quickly become a systemic problem.

ABC News Reporter Arrested After Police Said His Camera Put “Their Lives in Danger”

WBRZ-TV reporter Brett Buffington was arrested on Thursday morning for attempting to take photos of a crime scene, and then later “mouthing off” to officer on the scene.

Buffington was charged with interfering with an officer and intimidating a public official. The police claim that Buffington “interfered” with a burglary investigation around 2:30 in the early morning on Thursday.

However, according to the police department’s version of events, Buffington was simply doing his job as a journalist and attempting to investigate a crime just as the police allegedly were.

The police report stated that Buffington disobeyed police officers when they asked him to leave the area, but instead took photos. The officers said that the flash from the camera diverted their attention and put “their lives in danger.”

White House slams Senate over lapse in spy provisions

The White House has labeled the US Senate "irresponsible" over its failure to prevent contested counterterrorism provisions, including the NSA's bulk collection of Americans' phone records, from expiring.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the NSA spying is in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, which Obama swore an oath to, Obama has now committed an impeachable offense!

The End of the Safe Deposit Box for Wealth Storage

On 1 April 2015, Chase bank in the US advised clients who rent safe deposit boxes from them that there would be some changes in their policies. Of particular interest is the following condition:

“Contents of box: You agree not to store any cash or coins other than those found to have a collectible value.”

Interesting. After all, cash and precious metals are traditional primary stores of wealth. Why single them out as no longer being acceptable?

NSA loses power to collect Americans’ phone records after no deal in Senate

The National Security Agency lost its authority at midnight to collect Americans’ phone records in bulk, after Republican Sen. Rand Paul stood in the way of extending the fiercely contested program in an extraordinary Sunday session in the Senate.

But that program and several other post-Sept. 11, 2001 counter-terror measures look likely to be revived within days. With no other options, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reluctantly embraced a House of Representatives-passed bill that would extend the provisions, while also remaking the bulk phone collections program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The headline is misleading. NSA still has the power to spy on your phone calls and will as long as those data centers remain standing. NSA was in violation of the law when it started building this system back in the 1980s. They will not hesitate to violate the law again. The new USA FREEDOM Act that may be passed now keeps the spying going, but shuffles around just who gets the data to make it look like there has been an improvement, but the real goal is to lull Americans into the false belief that somehow privacy protections have been restored, so that we will not create our own systems of encryption to protect our business secrets from government crooks. It is up to us all to take responsibility for our right to privacy, guaranteed to us under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

Rule By The Corporations — Paul Craig Roberts

The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade. “Free trade” is used as a disguise to hide the power these agreements give to corporations to use law suits to overturn sovereign laws of nations that regulate pollution, food safety, GMOs, and minimum wages.

The first thing to understand is that these so-called “partnerships” are not laws written by Congress. The US Constitution gives Congress the authority to legislate, but these laws are being written without the participation of Congress. The laws are being written by corporations solely in the interest of their power and profit. The office of US Trade Representative was created in order to permit corporations to write law that serves only their interests. This fraud on the Constitution and the people is covered up by calling trade laws “treaties.”

DOES JADE HELM VIOLATE POSSE COMITATUS?

Obscured by Jon Stewart’s well-publicized mockery of Texans’ reaction to Jade Helm 15—the US Army’s two-month-long exercise across nine states scheduled to begin in July—is the fact that the criticisms may not all be deranged droolings. The Daily Show‘s Stewart made headlines earlier in May when he ridiculed Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision ordering the State Guard to “monitor” Jade Helm. The comedian-cum-newsman called Jade Helm critics “Lone Star lunatics.” But are they? Or is there more to the story? As always, WhoWhatWhy has remained agnostic while asking questions. Now, we provide a few initial answers. More will undoubtedly come.
