FBI Fails Privacy And Accuracy Tests On Its Facial Recognition Tools According To GAO Report, While A.I. Police State Advances

By Aaron Kesel

The FBI has failed to assuage concerns of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on its use of facial recognition technology according to a new report.

Numerous issues were raised three years ago after the congressional watchdog urged the FBI to improve its practices in order to meet privacy and accuracy standards expected...

FBI ADMITS HILLARY EMAILS FOUND IN OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

A senior FBI official has admitted under oath the bureau found emails sent from Hillary Clinton’s unsecured server in President Obama’s executive office in the White House.

E.W. Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part of court-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue, the Washington watchdog said Tuesday.

“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement Tuesday.

"I Did Nothing Wrong" - Trump Warns "Angry Dems" He'll Take Impeachment Threats To Supreme Court

While Pelosi is desperately playing down impeachment threats (along with Bernie Sanders), many on the left refuse to let reality sink in and keep pushing for this distraction from their lack of policy positioning.

The Mueller Report, despite being written by Angry Democrats and Trump Haters, and with unlimited money behind it ($35,000,000), didn’t lay a glove on me. I DID NOTHING WRONG. If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court. Not only......

Returning once again to where the real crimes were committed: " All of the Crimes were committed by Crooked Hillary, the Dems, the DNC and Dirty Cops - and we caught them in the act! "

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time the Democrats double down on "impeachment", it demonstrates that they have, effectively, quit working for the people who hired them in the first place, to get something reasonable, helpful and responsible done, for We the People.

This is going to bite them in a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy in 2020. Tom Perez, you had better start taking a longer look at history, before you commit to impeachment here; and you had better start listening to the people who could flip their state in either direction, come November 2020, barring vote fraud, which we know is going to happen here.

Given the current numbers, even if the House impeaches, the Senate will not convict, which means that the Democrats will have spent millions more on investigations, which means that the money spent on this, will be off the table for other critical projects, like a crumbling infrastructure, and better help for our Vets.

Trump crackdown on ‘3 stooges of socialism’ has 2020 thrust

On the 58th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, President Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton addressed a group of Cuban American veterans of the failed effort to topple Fidel Castro's regime and announced a series of crackdowns on Cuba and its allies.

It was part of a call to arms to fight socialism abroad, but it was also a message for domestic consumption — particularly in Florida, the nation’s largest swing state and home to large Cuban American and Central and South American communities.

Cohen Betrayed: Tom Arnold Leaks Phone Call Where Former Trump Attorney Admits To More Lies

President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has backtracked in a recent recorded phone call, claiming he's not actually guilty for crimes he pleaded guilty to.

In a conversation with Trump-hating provocateur Tom Arnold, Cohen said that he hadn't evaded taxes, and that a criminal charge linked to his home-equity line of credit was "a lie," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Arnold recorded Cohen without his knowledge for approximately 36 minutes during a March 25 phone call, which Arnold provided to the Journal.

"There is no tax evasion," said Cohen on the call. "And the Heloc? I have an 18% loan-to-value on my home. How could there be a Heloc issue? How? Right?…It’s a lie."

In the 36-minute recording, Messrs. Cohen and Arnold covered a range of issues, from the legal troubles of former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti to Mr. Trump’s affinity for the leader of North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why do the largest hunks of fecal matter swim so closely to those at the top of the food chain in DC?!?

It appears to me, at this point in my observations of those in the Bowels of Power in DC, that the higher up in station these monied people become,and the larger the chokehold they have on our financial affairs, the greater the resistance they have against doing anything remotely for the good of We the People.

Just because a country has "elections", is no guarantee that it remains a democratic republic. We are, at this point in the US, a kleptocracy of the highest order, of the monied, by the monied, and for the monied.

I'm tired of this; no matter who we vote for, there is utterly zero positive change. We are given the illusion of control, through our national elections, but this is nothing more than swapping out one "talking head" for another, who are completely in the sway of the corporations and military industrial complex, which rule this shell game, to which, in large part, we are not privy.

Kushner says ‘a couple of Facebook ads’ didn’t swing the election, Democrats go crazy

After White House adviser Jared Kushner suggested the Russiagate probe did more damage to the US than “a couple of Facebook ads,” Democrats went into meltdown with accusations of “propaganda” spreading and lack of “patriotism.”

In an interview with Time magazine, Kushner said Russia's alleged effort to interfere in the US election was “a terrible thing,” but added that “the investigations and all of the speculation that's happened for the last two years has a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple Facebook ads.”

Hillary, revitalized by Mueller's 'obstruction' theories, hypes 'roadmap' to impeachment

Hillary Clinton has blamed Justice Department rules for the Mueller report's failure to indict President Donald Trump, declaring the "roadmap" to an obstruction charge is there in plain sight, should Congress choose to pursue it.

"I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted," Clinton told an audience at the Time 100 summit, insisting the Mueller report, despite its failure to substantiate the criminal accusations leveled against the president, was merely "the end of the beginning" of what could be a beautiful impeachment – if Congress plays its cards right.

US Pressure on Iran Not to Strengthen Washington's International Authority

Washington's crackdown on Iranian oil exports won’t enhance the international standing of the United States, the Russian foreign ministry said.

"The US has obviously made a mistake in choosing tools, if it has decided to make Tehran an easy negotiator ready for any deals on American terms through suppressing it economically, dealing a blow to the living conditions of ordinary Iranians," Moscow stated.

"This policy won’t add international weight to Americans — the rest of the world sees perfectly well that Washington's policy is getting increasingly aggressive and reckless">>>

A Dagger Planted In The War Of Words? Rhouani: "Knife-Stabbing" Trump

Rouhani Stresses Iran' Continued Oil Sales, Rejects Talks with "Knife-Stabbing"
Trump

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani downplayed the effects of Washington's decision to end sanctions waivers on Iran's oil sales, and dismissed talks with the US administration which uses the language of threat and force to demand negotiations.

"We have always been people who favor talks and diplomacy as we are people of war and defense. Negotiations will be possible when all pressures are taken off, they (the US) apologize for their illegal measures and when there is mutual respect. Undoubtedly, demands by a knife-stabbing person who lies and is using force to hold talks is not accepted and we do not negotiate with a knife-stabbing person and with the formula of knife-stabbing, as accepting such negotiations means humiliation and surrender," President Rouhani said, addressing a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.

The logic behind US humiliation of the Palestinians

What an old Hebrew parable can tell us about Kushner's strategy and the deal of the century.

Over the past two years, the Trump administration has launched an all-out diplomatic assault on the Palestinians, while preparing a new initiative to resolve the Middle East conflict. It has claimed its plan is different from any other, downplayed anything said about it as wild speculation, and accused critics of rushing to judgment before they have seen it.

Indeed, the Palestinians have not seen the actual plan, but they have a pretty good feeling about what it will involve. They have watched closely as the Trump administration has spat out one policy after the other with the clear intention of humiliating and subduing them.

Trump: Israel's gift that keeps on giving

Over the past year and a half, US President Donald Trump administration has been giving Benjamin Netanyahu's government one political "gift" after the other.

In December 2017, his administration recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv in May 2018. In January 2018, it froze all assistance to UNRWA, the UN agency tasked with supporting millions of Palestinian living as refugees, and in June that year, it quit the UN Human Rights Council after accusing it of having a bias against Israel on account of its policies in occupied Palestine. In September, the Trump administration closed the representative office of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in Washington.

Meanwhile, it gave Netanyahu freehand to expand Jewish settlements>>>

Tensions between Pyongyang and Washington have continued to simmer in the wake of the two summits, with North Korea recently calling for the replacement of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a negotiator.

In addition to the increasing hostility towards Pompeo, North Korea last week tested a "new type of tactical guided weapon", its state news agency reported. It was the country's first known weapons test since February's failed US-North Korea summit in Hanoi.

The Fountain Murders:

Oliver Lee is the most underrated gunman of The Old West!

February 1, 1896
Albert Jennings Fountain is agitated. It’s cold and windy, and his young son is coming down with a cold. Fountain is anxious to get the eight year old home to his mother, but his discomfort has more to do with three suspicious horseback riders who have been tailing him for some time.

These are not the first riders to trail him on this ride. Some 40 miles from Las Cruces, New Mexico, Fountain encountered the mail carrier on the way to Tularosa. Reining up, the postman had pulled alongside, and Fountain asked him, while pointing off in the distance: “Do you know who those horsemen are?”

The Assassination of Pat Garrett

Once and for all, who did it and why?

For the 57-year-old lawman, his was an undignified death. Pat Garrett was urinating on the side of the road to Las Cruces, New Mexico, about four miles east of town. As he was so occupied, somebody hidden about 50 feet behind him put a Winchester bullet in the back of his head.

On February 29, 1908, Garrett was dead. The man who had headed down the legends trail nearly 30 years before when he killed Billy the Kid, murdered.

It was a conspiracy. A contract murder. An organized crime hit.

The Three Purposes of Russiagate

One is to prevent President Trump from endangering the vast budget and power of the military/security complex by normalizing relations with Russia.

Another, in the words of James Howard Kunstler, is “to conceal the criminal conduct of US government officials meddling in the 2016 election in collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign,” by focusing all public and political attention on a hoax distraction.

The third is to obstruct Trump’s campaign and distract him from his agenda when he won the election.

Despite the inability of Mueller to find any evidence that Trump or Trump officials colluded with Russia to steal the US presidential election, and the inability of Mueller to find evidence with which to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice, Russiagate has achieved all of its purposes.

The Conspiracy Against Trump

The real “deplorable” in today’s United States is the continuation of a foreign policy based on endless aggression to maintain Washington’s military dominance in parts of the world where Americans have no conceivable interest. Many voters backed Donald J. Trump because he committed himself to changing all that, but, unfortunately, he has reneged on his promise, instead heightening tension with major powers Russia and China while also threatening Iran and Venezuela on an almost daily basis. Now Cuba is in the crosshairs because it is allegedly assisting Venezuela. One might reasonably ask if America in its seemingly enduring role as the world’s most feared bully will ever cease and desist, but the more practical question might be “When will the psychopathic trio of John Bolton, Mike Pompeo and Elliott Abrams be fired so the United States can begin to behave like a normal nation?”

Oil Price Hits Fresh 2019 High After US Ends Waivers for Importing Iran Oil

Brent crude oil price on Tuesday rose to its highest level this year, just hours after Washington decided not to renew waivers that allow eight countries to buy Iranian oil without facing the United States' punishment.
Brent, the international oil benchmark, rose 0.8 percent to $74.64 in early European trading on Tuesday, adding to gains on Monday to reach its highest level since early November.

On Monday, West Texas Intermediate (WTI), the US marker, crude futures hit their highest level since October 2018 at $65.95 per barrel before edging back to $65.89, which was still up 0.5 percent from their last settlement. On Tuesday, West Texas Intermediate increased 0.9 per cent to $66.13.

US Decision on Iran's Oil Exports May Destroy Nuclear Deal

The European Union regrets the United States' decision to halt waivers on sanctions against importers of Iranian oil, which may undermine the success of the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Spokesperson for EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Maja Kocijancic said on Tuesday.

"We regret yesterday's announcement by the US not to renew all waivers. This further risks undermining the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action… . We, as the European Union, will continue to abide by the JCPOA as long as Iran continues the full and effective implementation of its nuclear-related commitments," Kocijancic told reporters.

Iran has warned Europeans, as the main beneficiaries of the agreement with the Islamic republic, that the nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers will be in danger if European countries fail to fulfill their pledge to ease the US pressures and allow the Islamic Republic to reap the economic benefits of the deal.

Politicizing Oil, Big US Mistake

Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh said the US had made a big mistake by politicizing the oil market, and vowed Tehran's maximum effort to break Washington's sanctions.

We must all join hands to pass these grave conditions behind with the help of God.”

“The imagination to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, with the help of God, will never be come true,” he said.

“The state of supply and demand is fragile in the current oil market, and the statements issued by the United States and its regional supporters to ensure the market in order to prevent rising oil prices, more than anything, betrays their concern for instability and fragility of the market”>>>

The Sri Lanka attacks: New front, old wounds

The attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday for many brought back memories of the long ethnic war, which came to a bloody conclusion 10 years ago in May. Although the Sri Lankan authorities are yet to identify the perpetrators, it appears the attacks are of a different nature, one fuelled by global dynamics, rather than a response to local communal grievances. Despite this, the violence is bound to exacerbate already-deep ethnic and religious fault lines, increasing existing tensions and possibly fuelling further violence.

After 1948, newly independent Sri Lanka embedded a virulent form of Sinhala Buddhist nationalism in the formation of the state. This ethos, in simple terms, holds that the entire island is home to Sinhala Theravada Buddhism and that minorities are invaders, who will be tolerated if they accept Sinhala hegemony. Any threats (perceived or real) to the Sinhala identity of the country are attacked resolutely.

This revealed itself in racially and linguistically discriminatory policies as constitutions were written, making non-Sinhala communities second-class citizens>>>
