"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

--Dwight D. Eisenhower (April 16, 1953)

Militarized Police And The Threat To Democracy

by Dennis Kucinich 

We are at a moment of national crisis in the way our domestic law enforcement is being conducted. The killing of an unarmed civilian by a law enforcement officer is, sadly, not unique. But the police response to the protests has provided a powerful cautionary moment for America. The militarization of local police has led to the arrival today in Ferguson of the actual military, the National Guard. 

[…] There is something deep in the American psyche which resents and resists military-style force in our neighborhoods. The hard-edged military pose of armored vehicles, heavy duty weaponry, and sound cannons, which can permanently damage hearing, may seem like modern crowd control to some law enforcement officials. But to the people in the community who are on the receiving end, it is an escalation of violence, in real terms and by the law.

AP denied security docs on HealthCare.gov, a risk to private information

The Associated Press (AP) has made a call to the government, asking it to reconsider a decision to not publicly disclose federal documents related to the security of the HealthCare.gov website.

- -

The only way this could put private information at risk, would be if they had no Security Plan (or zero security actually being used! for that matter) in place to begin with.

This is a “If we tell how insecure it is, every cracker will know it is insecure" kind of argument; even though every cracker already knows how insecure this pathetic heap of bolts is, thus, still placing your information at risk.

The public has a right to know how incredibly vulnerable this system is so they can make informed decisions. Something this Administration has been stone-walling, and flat out lying about the entire time for political reasons.

The politicians don’t really care about your data (hello NSA), they just want to look good in the lap-dog corporate press so you’ll keep ignorantly voting them more power (and abdicate control over your own lives).

Cell Phone Guide For US Protesters, Updated 2014 Edition
With major protests in the news again, we decided it’s time to update our cell phone guide for protestors. A lot has changed since we last published this report in 2011, for better and for worse. On the one hand, we’ve learned more about the massive volume of law enforcement requests for cell phone—ranging from location information to actual content—and widespread use of dedicated cell phone surveillance technologies. On the other hand, strong Supreme Court opinions have eliminated any ambiguity about the unconstitutionality of warrantless searches of phones incident to arrest, and a growing national consensus says location data, too, is private.

Protesters want to be able to communicate, to document the protests, and to share photos and video with the world. So they’ll be carrying phones, and they’ll face a complex set of considerations about the privacy of the data those phones hold. We hope this guide can help answer some questions about how to best protect that data, and what rights protesters have in the face of police demands.

“There is evil in this world… Ugly, savage, inexplicable, nihilistic, and valueless evil. ISIL is the face of that evil.”

You spelled USA wrong…

You can not pretend to give a shit about human life when your president personally orders the CIA drone bombing of an innocent 16 yr old American boy (Abdul-rahman al-Awlaki).

Stop killing children, stop overthrowing democratically elected governments, stop arming terrorists, stop your economic wars, stop all your wars. Stop terrorizing planet Earth.
