Facebook fighting court order
over law enforcement access

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/16/2017 6:44:36 PM

Facebook is fighting a court order that blocks the social media giant from letting users know when law enforcement investigators ask to search their online information, particularly their political affiliations and comments. Major technology companies and civil liberties groups have joined Facebook in the case, which resembles legal challenges throughout the country from technology companies that oppose how the government seeks access to internet data in emails or social media accounts during criminal investigations, The Washington Post reported . Facebook is arguing in the D.C. Court of Appeals that the order violates

Comments:
Since I don´t use any social media websites, not worried. But then, you never know if someone is saying bad things either. Oh, well. Ignorance is bliss.

Has there ever been a media or technology dewveloped that the Government hasn´t demanded full and unhindered access to? They have even gone so far as to create false contact poin ts just to gather information on innocent citizens.
On this one topic I stand with Zuckerman.

We should not be ok with this whether you use social media or not. Investigating crime is a great excuse meant to make you look like you are in-American if you object. This is government intrusion into private lives that they have no right to.

If you watch crime shows you know that one of the first places the police turn is to social media.

He made $5 million in salary and another $4.9 million (Snip) Mr. Scaramucci responded angrily. “In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony,” he wrote on Twitter, “I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept.”

Washington - About two weeks after teasing a potential bid for US Senate, musician Kid Rock announced early Thursday morning that he is creating a non-profit to promote voter registration. "The one thing I´ve seen over and over is that although people are unhappy with the government, too few are even registered to vote or do anything about it. (Snip) He also said he'd hold a news conference in the next six weeks to address the non-profit and a potential Senate run. "If I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me... it's game on," the statement says. Kid Rock, a supporter of President Donald Trump,

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton assessed the limited options for the Trump administration in the wake of new reports that North Korea could have a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile as early as next year. U.S. officials warn Pyongyang could be readying another test-launch, as the hermit dictator threatens to strike the U.S. with a "powerful nuclear hammer" if it attempts regime change. (Snip) He said the last diplomatic option involves China and convincing them that it´s in their best interest to unite the Koreas. "The way you eliminate the North Korean nuclear program is to eliminate North Korea.

San Francisco - Russian intelligence agents attempted to spy on President Emmanuel Macron´s election campaign earlier this year by creating phony Facebook personas, according to a U.S. congressman and two other people briefed on the effort. About two dozen Facebook accounts were created to conduct surveillance on Macron campaign officials and others close to the centrist former financier (Snip) Facebook said in April it had taken action against fake accounts that were spreading misinformation about the French election. But the effort to infiltrate the social networks of Macron officials has not previously been reported.

A federal program designed to provide better opportunities for at-risk youth has been plagued by stunning amounts of crime and violence according to government reports. The Job Corps program, overseen by the United States Department of Labor, racked up almost 50,000 safety and security incidents in a nearly 10-year span; including homicides, fights, drug-related incidents and more. A new report from the Government Accountability Office highlights alarming statistics for the program that´s considered the country´s largest residential, educational, career and technical training program for low-income youth.

House rejects Republican bills

Conservatives failed in their bid Wednesday to punish the Congressional Budget Office for its grim evaluations of GOP health care proposals, with the House rejecting two different efforts to strip funding from the nonpartisan agency. Both Democratic and Republican leaders had opposed the efforts to spank the CBO, saying that Congress needs an independent auditor to evaluate spending, no matter how far off the estimates may turn out to be. Conservatives were upset earlier this year after the CBO projected that the GOP’s Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill would leave some 23 million fewer Americans with

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book:
Make way for the pity party
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/27/2017 12:54:34     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton, of “I Should’ve Won the White House!” fame, apparently isn’t content to deliver 10- and 20-second talking points from her national podium about the dang Russians who worked with President Donald Trump to give him that presidential title. She’s gotta write a book about it, too. That’s right. Clinton’s new book will reportedly double down on the Russian election interference angle — as well as one that rings in former FBI chief James Comey as a heavy factor in her loss, too. She just wants to get the story out, her friends privately say. “She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no

Anthony Scaramucci finally has his White House job, but he still stands to profit from an ownership stake in his investment firm SkyBridge Capital. The incoming White House communications director earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge in addition to more than $5 million in salary between Jan. 1, 2016, and the end of June, when he joined the Export-Import Bank, according to a financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics. The disclosure form hasn’t been previously reported. The disclosure highlights the extensive wealth Scaramucci has accumulated in his career —

The Justice Department Just Argued
Against Gay Rights In A Major Federal Case

The US Justice Department on Wednesday argued in a major federal lawsuit that a 1964 civil rights law doesn’t protect gay workers from discrimination, thereby diverging from a separate, autonomous federal agency that had supported the gay plaintiff’s case. The Trump administration’s filing is unusual (Snip) "The sole question here is whether, as a matter of law, Title VII reaches sexual orientation discrimination," says the Justice Department´s brief. "It does not, as has been settled for decades. Any efforts to amend Title VII’s scope should be directed to Congress rather than the courts."

The European Union´s top court has ruled that the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas should remain on the 28-member bloc´s terrorism blacklist. The Court of Justice (ECJ) overturned a General Court ruling, which had said there was not enough evidence to keep travel bans and asset freezes on Hamas. The lower court had said in 2014 the listing was based on media reports, not decisions by "competent authorities". But the ECJ said such decisions were not needed to keep groups on the list. In Wednesday´s ruling, the Luxembourg-based ECJ said decisions by the competent authorities were only required for the initial listing of groups or

Washington - Anthony Scaramucci, President Trump’s new communications director, vowed on Tuesday to crack down on leaks from the White House, threatening to fire everyone in the press office if necessary to stop aides from disclosing West Wing business to reporters. “I’m going to fire everybody — that’s how,” Mr. Scaramucci told reporters in the White House driveway, asked how he planned to identify who had been leaking to the press and ensure that the disclosures stopped. He said he had authority directly from Mr. Trump to do so. “You’re either going to stop leaking, or you’re going to get fired,” he said.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again.

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ.

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion
