U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

 

 

 

 

 

” The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand to hand over user communications — a request the company believed was unconstitutional — according to court documents unsealed Thursday that illuminate how federal officials forced American tech companies to participate in the National Security Agency’s controversial PRISM program.

  The documents, roughly 1,500 pages worth, outline a secret and ultimately unsuccessful legal battle by Yahoo to resist the government’s demands. The company’s loss required Yahoo to become one of the first to begin providing information to PRISM, a program that gave the NSA extensive access to records of online com­munications by users of Yahoo and other U.S.-based technology firms.”

ISIL Sexually Assaults New Recruits: Documentary

 

 

 

ISIL Rape Documentary

 

 

 

” In a documentary broadcast August 27th on the Kurdish station STERK TV, captured “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) elements say the group has been raping men in a ceremony it describes as “marriage” and recording this to use as blackmail and force them to join.

  ISIL uses rape, including gang rape, as a tactic of fear to intimidate populations it seeks to control, according to an August 28th report by the Firat News Agency, a Kurdish agency based in Amsterdam.

  The STERK TV documentary records the confessions of more than 20 ISIL elements who were captured by Kurdish fighters in Syria and includes horrific footage of ISIL’s crimes, Firat said.

” The ISIL elements admitted that what they called ‘marriage’ was in fact rape. They said that every new member of the group was raped. The footage of the rape would be used as blackmail in the event of the new recruit refusing to participate in actions,” it said.

  In the documentary, ISIL fighter Abdul Kareem Ibrahim Bazo said he had been blindfolded and raped.

” About a fortnight later they came and said I had to join. I did not want to. But they had the footage. They threatened to show it to my family,” Firat reported him as saying.

  Ferhan Salim Unuf Safen, 20, described how he had been abducted and raped by “six or seven” ISIL elements and was ashamed to explain the things they had done to him.

” I fainted. When I came round they told me: ‘you are now with ISIL’,” he said. “

Ahmed Hussain also described on camera how he had been abducted, drugged, tortured and gang raped by ISIL elements.

“They ‘married’ me 15 times. Then they washed my head and put cologne on me. They told me no one could join ISIL without being married,” Hussain said.

Was Chief Justice Roberts Blackmailed Into Supporting Obamacare?

 

 

 

 

” In 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote for the Supreme Court’s ruling that ObamaCare was a legal tax. Conservatives were beyond stunned. Roberts’ decision was a narrow, weaving, legal mess, unlike the clear, assured opinions he usually wrote. What the heck happened?

There were also some subterranean murmurings that the Obama administration was blackmailing Chief Justice Roberts. This was a bit far-fetched. We all knew that Obama habitually practiced a Chicago-approach to politics, one that saw him digging up secret dirt on his opponents, releasing it, and forcing them out of the election. For example, when Obama ran for the U.S. Senate in 2004, his opponent was the popular Jack Ryan. As the campaign progressed badly for Obama, secret court filings from Ryan’s divorce “miraculously” appeared with unproven allegations from his former wife about his sexual practices. The scandal hit the fan, Ryan dropped out of the race, and Obama ran essentially unopposed against Ryan’s replacement, Alan Keyes. 

But what in the world could Obama have on Chief Justice Roberts?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

60,000 Border And Customs Agents Told To Take Furloughs

 

 

 

” Sixty-thousand federal employees responsible for securing the nation’s borders and facilitating trade will be furloughed for as many as 14 days starting next month because of $85 billion in cross-government spending cuts.

The federal government notified the workers on Thursday, CNN reports.U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said the furloughs and other austerity measures would cause delays at ports of entry, including international arrivals at airports, and would reduce the number of border patrol officers on duty at any one time, CNN reports.

David Aguilar, the agency’s deputy commissioner, said it must cut about $754 million by Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year.The agency plans to institute furloughs throughout its departments, a hiring freeze — and to reduce or eliminate overtime, compensatory time, travel and training. Other federal agencies are following similar steps because of the spending cuts that took effect on March 1 through sequestration.

The Customs furloughs will begin in mid-April, with reductions in border patrol overtime starting on April 7, Burke said.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Monday that she expects customs wait times to increase to 150 to 200 percent of normal, CNN said.

“I don’t mean to scare, I mean to inform,” Napolitano said. “If you’re traveling, get to the airport earlier than you otherwise would. There’s only so much we can do with personnel.” “

 

 

 

 

 

MORE ON THE TIMING OF PETRAEUS’S RESIGNATION

Wow , what an operator … In one fell swoop Obama nailed 3 , nay , 4 birds with one stone. How , You ask  ? Well think about it for a minute. 

1) He kept the lid on a serious embarrassment to preserve his re-election efforts .

2) He has forced out of office a central player in any Benghazi investigation and with that , denied the General access to pertinent records.

(A caveat : We here are not lawyers and do not know whether General Patraeus poses a greater threat to the Obama administration before congressional investigators as a government employee or as a private citizen . Perhaps a reader could enlighten us on that point .)

  3) He destroyed any possibility of a future run for the presidency by General Patraeus and in the process deprived the Republicans ( presumably) of the prestige afforded the General by an appreciative nation .

   On further reflection we see a possible 4th bird … Might the good General’s reputation be so badly damaged by these sordid revelations that it tarnished once and for all anything the man might choose to do or say … Such as congressional testimony ?

   Why not a quiet , ” I want to spend more time with my family” retirement ? Administrations quietly change personnel all the time , so why the public humiliation ?

   On it’s face , one would think that any administration would be interested in limiting the drama in the personnel changes out of a desire to avoid taint by association .Therefore , knowing this administration , that would lead one to surmise that the administration sees something to be gained by the very public destruction of two accomplished American families .

  On generating the graphics for this post we were reminded of a very pertinent fact … Read the top of the FBI seal below … Yes that’s right …The FBI is a part of the “Justice” Department . Ponder that as you recall which knave is in charge over there .

FBI agents on the case were aware
that such a decision had been made
to hold off on forcing him out until
after the election and were.outraged.

“The decision was made to delay the
resignation apparently to avoid
potential embarrassment to the
president before the election,” an
FBI source says. “To leave him in
such a sensitive position where he
was vulnerable to potential
blackmail for months compromised
our security and is inexcusable.” “
