In 2010, a barbershop in Florida was the site of a full SWAT style raid, while local officers came to check and see if their business license was valid.

The over-the-top display led two employees and the owner of The Strictly Skillz Barbershop sitting in hand cuffs for an hour while police verified their licenses and checked the premise for code violations. This came only days after a more standard inspection had shown there were no violations at the location.

Four years later a federal appeals court has ruled against two of the officers involved in the raid, reaffirming that such force during a routine raid was against the law.

“We have twice held, on facts disturbingly similar to those presented here, that a criminal raid executed under the guise of an administrative inspection is constitutionally unreasonable,”  U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit stated.

Sarah continues to outsmart the opposition …

Originally posted on Rare:

On Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posted photos of herself leaving a hot yoga class without makeup. Leaving class, Palin was approached by a paparazzi who took several photos of her in your post-workout sweat.

Knowing the photos would hit the Internet the next morning, Palin took to her Facebook page to beat the paparazzi to the chase, and show the country what she looked like after burning some calories.

“Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive’ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive’ and I’ll give you the photos first, for free!” Palin wrote.

“Yup, here’s what I looked like sans makeup, drowning in sweat when the camera rolled; looking much like a sheepdog, I’d say. No one said workouts were glamorous!”

With the sacrifices of America’s bravest still fresh in our minds only a day after the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, this video posted a year ago really hits the nail on the head.

There are no words, but the salute and hug says it all.

“At Food City, we honor those people that serve and protect our country, and we know that without the men and women who watch out for us, we would not have any of the luxuries we do,” Food City, the company behind the ad, said in a release. “We are the land of the free because of the brave and we salute you!”

The tagline of the ad was “Celebrating freedom and those who provide it.”

And Fleischer’s transparency led to this observation from journalist Sharyl Attkisson, “we still have no idea what commander in chief did Sept. 11, 2012.”

Yes, where was President Obama?

On Friday, the IRS said it has also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.

According to the AP, the IRS is blaming a “computer crash” and has “found no evidence that anyone deliberately destroyed evidence.”

If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that the IRS has nothing to hide.

The Lebanese Ice Bucket Challenge Has Morphed Into Burning Islamic State Flags

 

 

 

 

” Last weekend, several Lebanese activists started a trend which has since gained prominence under the hashtag #BurnISISFlagChallenge or #BurnISIS. The protesters burned an Islamic State flag in retaliation to the presumed beheading of a Lebanese officer, an idea which quickly motivated others to post similar pictures or videos.

  The self-perpetuating campaign follows the model of the well-known #IceBucketChallenge, and has found supporters on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks.

  Although having been praised by some Internet users, the campaign has been strongly criticized by the Lebanese justice minister who even called for “sternest punishments” for those who burned flags of the IS militant group last Saturday. In a statement, Ashraf Rifi declared it was necessary to “bring to justice those individuals who burned the ISIS flag in Sassine Square.” “

A Google Site Meant To Protect You Is Helping Hackers Attack You

 

 

 

 

 

” Before companies like Microsoft and Apple release new software, the code is reviewed and tested to ensure it works as planned and to find any bugs.

  Hackers and cybercrooks do the same. The last thing you want if you’re a cyberthug is for your banking Trojan to crash a victim’s system and be exposed. More importantly, you don’t want your victim’s antivirus engine to detect the malicious tool.

  So how do you maintain your stealth? You submit your code to Google’s VirusTotal site and let it do the testing for you.

  It’s long been suspected that hackers and nation-state spies are using Google’s antivirus site to test their tools before unleashing them on victims. Now Brandon Dixon, an independent security researcher, has caught them in the act, tracking several high-profile hacking groups—including, surprisingly, two well-known nation-state teams—as they used VirusTotal to hone their code and develop their tradecraft. “

Armored Truck Crashes: Money Bags Spill Over Highway, Passersby Sprint To Loot

 

 

 

” An armored truck turned over and out spilled bags of money along the highway, which was a sight that quickly drew a crowd of people scrambling to the site of the bags of cash. If you happened to be driving down the highway at the time on Route 10 in Rhode Island, the clear plastic bags and the white canvas duffle bags stuffed with money would have definitely caught your eye. The crowd scrambling around the money was also an eye-catcher!

  According to MSN News on Aug. 31, the driver of the Garda armored truck lost control going southbound on Route 10 Saturday afternoon. The truck swerved and left the highway then flipped on its side when hitting the grass area along the side of Route 10.

  The New York Post reports today that a little after 2 p.m. on Saturday, bags of money flew onto the highway in Cranston. “There were bags of it all over the place,” said Deputy Fire Chief Paul Valetta. He also added, “There were quite a few people here.” “

Wow, it looks like Obama is a very austere POTUS and all these claims about increased government spending and deficits are just hogwash.

But the author performs a simple trick to make his case – He takes all the government spending in 2009 and attributes it to Bush.

It’s true, the Federal government spending in 2009 was set in 2008 but the author forgets about a little item in early 2009 that didn’t have anything to do with Bush – The 2009 Stimulus.

The 2009 Stimulus added $787 billion to the government outlays and that…

Let me stop you right now because I know what you’re already thinking, and yes, he basically just dumps a bunch of money over his head.

On the plus side, he does plan on donating the money he dumps over himself ($10,000) to the ALS association. Also he nominates Jon Cryer, Chuck Lorre, and Ashton Kutcher, because of course he does. Sorry dudes, that’s a tough one. Give in to taunting by Charlie Sheen or give a big middle finger to a noble cause?…

The Feds manipulating data ? Who would have thought ?

Originally posted on Real Science:

The US is having one of its coldest years on record, as evidenced by record Great Lakes ice, and many pronouncements of record or near record cold winter and summer monthly temperatures by states and the National Weather Service.

But after data tampering by NCDC, this year has been just below average temperature, and only 41st coldest since 1895.

ScreenHunter_1750 Aug. 07 21.26

The actual thermometer data shows 2014 as 7th coldest on record so far, and coldest since 1979

ScreenHunter_1751 Aug. 07 21.31

More than two-thirds of the US has been below normal temperature so far this year.

NCDC accomplishes their feat of destroying the US temperature record, through a phenomenal hockey stick of data tampering- which cools the past by almost two degrees relative to the current year.

ScreenHunter_1752 Aug. 07 21.34

Note that according to NCDC, this year has been warmer than almost every year in the 1960s. This massive corruption defies both explanation and imagination.
