Did Michelle Obama Also "Borrow" For Her 2008 Speech

“...is based upon the application of certain basic truths: that integrity is all important, that your word is your bond, that if you owe a person money you pay him back, that you work hard, enjoy what you do and show a loyalty to those with whom you work and do business. He instilled in me simple, clear cut values and a will to succeed.”

- Rob Marsh, "Business success in South Africa", 1992

The Feds “Assault” on U.S. War Veterans You Won’t Believe

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, JD, who also is the Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation, has written the article “OUTRAGEOUS: Veterans are now receiving letters prohibiting the purchase, possession, receipt, or transport of a firearm/ammunition…” that every voter and law abiding citizen in the USA ought to read to understand the scope of what’s happened in this country and, seemingly, we don’t give a fiddler’s damn about. How truly sad!...

Congress Passes Opioid Bill — While Entirely Ignoring New Studies Showing Cannabis Kills Pain

By Justin Gardner

Congress is patting itself on the back after passing the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act (CARA) and sending it to Obama’s desk. The “overwhelmingly bipartisan” bill is meant to address the opioid epidemic currently gripping the U.S.

It was an easy one for congressmen to brag about to their constituency, but the legislation is notable for its failure perhaps more so than its achievement. Namely, the failure to recognize medical cannabis as part of a viable alternative for treating chronic pain, and failure to call out the role of Big Pharma in getting the nation hooked on opioids...

Collectivism and Engineered Perception

By Jon Rappoport

The primary feature of The Group is: its members look at events indirectly; they look at events in accordance with what they think other members are seeing; they don’t look at or judge an event through their own eyes or minds.

This method of seeing is, in fact, empty. It’s a fantasy. It’s like passing around an unknown object, from hand to hand, and describing it as you believe everyone else will describe it.

You are always listening for “an echo effect” before it happens.

And you claim the echo effect is what you perceive.

It’s a rank absurdity...

Never10

The name “Never 10” is a bit of an overstatement, since this utility may also be used to easily re-enable Windows operating system automatic upgrading. But the primary reason for using this is to disable Windows' pestering insistence upon upgrading Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.

UK government admits 'Snooper's Charter' would allow it to ban end-to-end encryption

The UK government has publicly admitted that parts of the Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB), better known as the 'Snooper’s Charter', would allow it to force companies to ban end-to-end encryption.

In what may be viewed as a huge assault on the public’s privacy, not to mention digital security, the government would ask internet and communication service providers to “develop and maintain a technical capability to remove encryption that has been applied to communications or data”. As one member of the House of Lords put it, when debating the IPB, this essentially means that companies may not use end-to-end encryption, and could leave the public at risk, not to mention setting a supremely dangerous precedent.

Yahoo's Latest Earnings Report Basically Confirms That Tumblr Purchase Was a Waste of Money

Yahoo released its latest earnings report today, and while there were some bright nuggets for the beleaguered company—its reported revenue for the second quarter of this year beat analyst estimates—there was one distinct black mark. Yahoo recorded a total goodwill impairment charge of $482 million related to its purchase of Tumblr. Whoops!

A “goodwill impairment charge” is a fancy way of saying that Yahoo is writing off part of the blogging platform’s value. The $482 million comes on top of the $230 million write down it reported in February. Given that the maligned purple giant purchased Tumblr for just over $1 billion, the total write down now amounts to about $700 million—more than half of the deal’s initial value.
