Facebook Knows Everything About You, And If You Don’t Believe Us Here’s Proof

 

 

o-DIGITAL-SHADOW-570

 

 

” A marketing stunt for the upcoming Ubisoft game “Watch Dogs” is inadvertently allowing users to check how well they’ve set up their Facebook privacy settings.

  The campaign called “Digital Shadow“, which currently is available only in the US, requests permission to access a user’s account and then pulls information to build a comprehensive dossier of the user as if he or she were an assassin’s target. And we do mean comprehensive.

  Digital Shadow first shows users the photos they’ve tagged as public, then it moves on to examine their friends. It shows users which of their Facebook friends they interact with most, which interact with them the most, which they don’t interact with at all, and (gulp) which friends they’ve been stalking that haven’t been stalking them back. (Those who’ve been keeping tabs on their exes should avoid this section at all costs.) “

 

    We’ve tried and tried without success to access the “Digital Shadow” website in order to report first-hand on how it works but the site is either down for service or , more likely , swamped with traffic from the above referenced article .

Murray Deputy Bit By Drug Dog While Taking Selfie

 

 

 

 

” A Murray County Sheriff’s Office deputy is recovering after one of the department’s drug dogs bit him in the face on Monday.

  Maj. Greg Fowler said Brett Morrison sat down with the Malinois after several deputies and probation and parole officers had finished serving a large number of warrants. The dog routinely goes with officers during such events, Fowler said.

  Fowler said Morrison wanted to take his picture with the dog, so he knelt down with a camera phone and wrapped his arm around the dog’s neck.

“ It’s an act of aggression to them whenever you do that,” Fowler said. “The canine just responded by what was presented to him based on his training.”

  That response was to bite the lower part of Morrison’s face, ripping it up so badly he had to be taken to Hamilton Medical Center and eventually received several stitches, Fowler said. He said the dog’s handler didn’t have time to react before the dog attacked, but the dog quickly backed off once the handler gave a command to stop. Fowler said the dog is current on all of its shots and hadn’t bitten anyone before.”

Florida And Alaska Officially Pass Convention Of States Application

 

 

 

 

This video from Alabama CoS Explains The Process Very Well

 

 

 

” From sea to shining sea, the Convention of States movement is sweeping the nation.

  I’m pleased to announce that Florida and Alaska have both officially passed the Convention of States application to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

  The Alaska Senate passed the Convention of States application (HJR 22) on Saturday by a vote of 12-8, and the Florida House passed the Convention of States application (SM 476) yesterday by a voice vote.”

 

 

 

Story continues at Convention Of States where you can also get further information on this growing nationwide effort to rein in overarching Federal control . Below is a brief explanation of the process for those who desire to be better informed on the subject …

 

 

” Purpose: The Convention of States (COS) Project was founded by Citizens for Self Governance for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C., is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people.

  We have a solution that is as big as the problem.

  Goal: The COS Project seeks to urge and empower state legislators to call a convention of states. The delegates at such a convention would have the power to propose amendments to the Constitution that would curb the abuses of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution gives them this power; the COS Project will give them an avenue through which they can use it.

  Plan: COS’s plan is twofold

  1. We want to call a convention for a particular subject rather than a particular amendment. Instead of calling a convention for a balanced budget amendment (though we are entirely supportive of such an amendment), we want to call a convention for the following purpose: Limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

  2. We believe the grassroots is the key to calling a successful convention. We would like to build a political operation in a minimum of 40 states, getting 100 people to volunteer in at least 75% of the state legislative districts. Only through the support of the American people will this project have a chance to succeed.”

Dems Won’t Support Cuomo For President In 2016

 

No Mo' Cuomos!

 

 

” Gov. Cuomo, long known for his presidential aspirations, won’t enjoy the support of his own Democratic Party if Hillary Rodham Clinton decides not to run for president in 2016, top state Democrats have told The Post.

  The Democrats said Cuomo’s worsening relations with his party have led many to look elsewhere for a presidential standard bearer, should Clinton not run.

  He has had issues almost daily in recent weeks with Mayor de Blasio, top union leaders, the Working Families Party, former state Chairmen Jay Jacobs and John Sullivan, and key party leaders including state Democratic Co-Chair Stephanie Miner, who resigned abruptly last week.”

Western Lawmakers Gather In Utah To Talk Federal Land Takeover

 

federal-land-map-1024x8411

 

 

” It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday.

  More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.

” It’s simply time,” said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. “The urgency is now.” “

Federal Lands

” Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington also were represented.

  The summit was in the works before this month’s tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over cattle grazing, Lockhart said.

” What’s happened in Nevada is really just a symptom of a much larger problem,” Lockhart said.

Fielder, who described herself as “just a person who lives in the woods,” said federal land management is hamstrung by bad policies, politicized science and severe federal budget cuts.

“Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands,” Fielder said, who lives in the northwestern Montana town of Thompson Falls.”

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Numbers Worst Since 2008, As GOP Brand Surges

 

 

It's My Turn

 

 

 

 

” A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years.

  Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance.

  The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton’s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable.

  The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46.

  Other polls have shown Clinton’s numbers — which were stellar during her time as secretary of state — steadily dropping since she left her post last year.

  The more surprising part of the Fox poll, though, might be how people view the Republican Party. It shows Americans are now evenly split — 45 percent to 45 percent — on the GOP. As recently as October, the same poll showed just 30 percent of Americans viewed the GOP favorably, compared to 63 percent unfavorable.”

” Gary Sinise, the Washington Free Beacon 2013 Man of the Year and the actor who appeared in the movie “Forrest Gump” as Lt. Dan, brought 50 wounded warriors to Disney World earlier this month as part of the Gary Sinise Foundation. The foundation helps military families and first-responders:

  The service members – each could bring a guest – had surprises along the way – including a trip to Paramount Studios and a red-carpet welcome at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Anaheim. Celebrities, including Tim Allen, greeted them in Hollywood. Tom Hanks, who played Forrest Gump, introduced a showing of the 1994 movie.”

Triumphal Kos: Conservatives Are Having A ‘Tantrum’ Because The Left Has ‘Won The Battle Of Ideas’

 

 

liberal-logic-liberal-hypocrisy-politics-1334703649

 

 

 

” Daily Kos boss Markos Moulitsas thinks that conservatives typically come off as angry and resentful, and in a Monday post he argued that’s because culturally, economically, and politically, the world “has left them behind…[T]hey’ve created an entire alternate media world in which to cocoon themselves. But they know they’ve lost.”
 
  Kos warned liberals not to celebrate just yet: “[P]ower isn’t just about ideas. It’s about wrestling the institutional levers of government from the retrogrades. Those entrenched economic and conservative interests wield power via the Supreme Court, through gross gerrymandering, through voter suppression efforts. So we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.”

From Kos’s post (emphasis added):

…[L]iberals have won the culture war…

  Liberal social values are deeply embedded in our culture, from pretty much everything on TV outside the Christian channels at the fringe of the channel lineup, to any movie of note. In that Breitbart link above, Nick [sic! make that John] Nolte waxes about God’s Not Dead, an indie Christian film that has grossed $41 million on a production budget of $2 million. Good job! Then again, it’s a blip. Captain America has grossed nearly half a [b]illion in 10 days, with its overtly civil-libertarian and anti-neocon message. I mean, Captain America is saying that a fear-based (read: Republican) foreign policy is not the “American Way.” “

 

 

     We hate to burst his bubble , but we think Mr Moulitsas has it exactly backwards . For nearly two generations now the left has controlled the media , academia and the entertainment industry and what do they have to show for it ? A population that grows ever wearier of the heavy hand of the State and municipal governments nationwide brought to the edge of bankruptcy by the exact liberal policies the Koz kid trumpets .

   The tide has indeed turned , but not in the direction the “progressives” think .

Gun-Control Group Pressures Organizers To Ban Ted Nugent From Ohio Music Festival

 

060104-N-8861F-008

 

 

” A gun control group is currently putting pressure on organizers of a summer music and food festival in Maumee, Ohio, to nix the Motor City Madman from the lineup.

  The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence wants The Toledo Blade newspaper, which is sponsoring the event, known as the Northwest Ohio Rib-Off, to “Cancel Ted Nugent’s appearance immediately.”

  Citing examples of Ted Nugent’s inflammatory rhetoric, including at the 2014 SHOT Show where he called the president a “subhuman mongrel” in an interview with Guns.com, CSGV Executive Director Josh Horwitz is urging Buckeye State residents to sign a petition in protest of Nugent’s scheduled appearance.

“ If we can make a strong show of opposition, I am certain we can sway [The Blade] towards the right decision,” Horowitz wrote in an email about the anti-Nuge campaign.”

BLM Attempting To Seize 90,000 Acres Of Texas Ranchers’ Land!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Apr 13, 2014

” RED RIVER RUMBLE? BLM Wants to Seize 90,000 Acres of Texas Ranchers’ Land!

  Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.

  The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River) have never belonged to Texas in the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states.

  Since 1803 when the Louisiana Purchase was completed, there has been a controversy over the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas. The boundary is supposed to be the vegetation line on the south side of the Red River. But the River has moved over time. The problem is the definition of that boundary line- Oklahoma and Texas each use different semantics to define it. And the BLM is finding ways to use the disputed words to give them the ability to seize the land.

” Over the course of 23 years, John Boehner has forgotten that his job was to go to D.C. to fight for you. Despite his campaign promises, as Speaker of the House he has failed to defund ObamaCare, failed to pass timely budgets, failed to protect us from amnesty for criminal illegal immigrants, and even raised the debt ceiling which leaves debt for our children and grandchildren to pay back and puts our national security at risk.

Target Shooting In America

 

 

 

Millions Of Shooters , Billions Of Dollars

 

 

 

    This report by the National Shooting Sports Foundation provides fascinating reading . The number of shooters as well as the money and time spent at the range boggles the mind and should give pause to those who think that gun enthusiasts are a group to be ignored and trampled upon .

 

 

 

Target Shooting 2

 

 

 

” Whether it’s religiously practiced at a range or shooting club each week or participated as an occasional weekend activity in the countryside with friends, millions of Americans go target shooting each year. In fact, more Americans target shoot each year than the number of people who live in the entire state of Florida or New York. Target shooters may be having fun afield with each shot at a clay pigeon or paper target, but with each outing, they are also part of an economic force at work. In fact, their activities generate $9.9 billion in spending each year through the purchase of shooting-specific products and services and create hundreds of thousands of jobs directly associated with the sale and manufacture of those goods and the provision of those services. As such, target shooting provides fun and enjoyment for millions of Americans, but ultimately benefits millions more through its positive economic impact.”

 

 

 

Just take a look at these numbers …

 

 

Target Shooters

 

 

 

” Target shooting comes in many forms. Participants shoot to test their skills and prepare for competition, hone their defensive abilities, test their marksmanship with new loads and optics or to simply have fun!Just like owning multiple tools to perform different jobs, many target shooters own more than one firearm, each with a particular use or purpose. With 65 percent of all target shooters, rifles are the most often used firearm. Handguns follow closely behind. Shotguns are used by 48 percent of all participants with muzzleloaders used by 18 percent of the shooting public. Although more target shooters use rifles, handgun users actually spend more days shooting, in part due to greater availability of indoor ranges in urban areas where more people live. Participation in target shooting by state roughly parallels each state’s population. Even in largely urban areas, people are keen to try their hand with firearms. Despite restrictions that can make target shooting activities difficult to enjoy, target shooting remains extremely popular and continues to grow everywhere.”

 

 

    Target shooting generates incredible amounts of revenue for businesses both firearm related and others as well as creating hundreds of thousands of jobs .

Police Find Seven Dead Babies In Utah County Home

 

 

 

SevenDeadBabiesArrest-037e9

 

 

” Pleasant Grove police made a grisly discovery Saturday: seven dead infants, six of them in cardboard boxes.

  Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of six counts of murder.

  Police believe she gave birth to the babies then killed them over the past decade, according to a police news release.”

Megan Huntsman

” On Saturday, police responded to a call from Huntsman’s ex-husband about a dead infant found inside a Pleasant Grove home that Huntsman lived in until 2011. Officers arrived and found the body of a newborn infant, who appeared to be full term, according to the release.

  Police obtained a search warrant for the home and found six more babies packaged in separate cardboard boxes inside the garage, said police Capt. Michael Roberts.

  Investigators learned that Huntsman allegedly gave birth to the infants, then killed them, over a 10 year period, the release adds. Her ex-husband is believed to be the father, but investigators are still working on DNA tests, Roberts said.”

    We guess that to the progressives out there this is ok , after all it’s nothing more than do-it-yourself abortion , right ?  Her body , her choice , what ?

Beachfront Dream Home Sells For US Record $120 Million

” A sprawling estate, situated on prime waterfront property along the US East Coast, has sold for $120 million, setting a new record in the United States.

The sale of Copper Beech Farm, in the Connecticut town of Greenwich, was finalized Friday, according to the Greenwich Time newspaper.”

” “This is the most expensive property sold in America,” real estate agent David Ogilvy told the newspaper.

The dream home had been listed for sale nearly a year earlier, in May 2013, for $190 million.”

Copper Beech Farm

” The 13,500-square-foot (1,250-square-meter) main house, originally built in 1898 in French Renaissance style, has 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10 fireplaces, a library, a solarium, a wine cellar and a servant’s wing.”

Chicago Preacher James Meeks Dumps Dems, Backs GOP Gubernatorial Candidate

 

 

 

” The choir sang hallelujah as the congregation of 15,000 clapped and sang along. Reverend James Meeks ratcheted up the intensity of his speech. “Man looks at the outside,” he shouted rearing his head back. “But God looks at your heart! Are you with me here?”

  Judging by the response, Meeks had the faithful at Salem Baptist Church hanging on his every word.“One hundred percent with Reverend Meeks,” said parishioner Eugene Harris outside the mega-church on Chicago’s fiercely Democratic South Side.

  Meeks is careful not to preach politics from the pulpit. That doesn’t mean he does not have a political side. This former state senator is active as a leader in Chicago’s African-American community and also has considerable political clout.

  This gubernatorial election he is not throwing that clout behind the Democrat, incumbent Governor Pat Quinn. Instead, Meeks is lining up behind Bruce Rauner, the wealthy Republican businessman from Chicago’s predominantly-white North Shore.

“ The Democratic party just assume always that 97 percent of the African-American vote will go to the Democratic party. If that assumption is true, they never have to work for our vote,” Meeks said.”

7 Blockbuster Obamacare Charts That The White House Doesn’t Want America To See
