BBC News – Google and Facebook in White House web privacy sights (Really?!)

Now, here is the funniest news article I have read about how wonderful this administration is and how they are so wonderful in protecting Americans! “I call it Smoke and Mirrors, but the elephant is still in the room!!”

 

BBC News – Google and Facebook in White House web privacy sights.

The White House has called on internet firms to develop stronger privacy protections for consumers.

The move comes amid worries that browsing information is being tracked and given to advertisers.

State attorneys in 36 states recently sent a letter of concern over Google’s plan to share personal information across its products.

As part of the announcement, the firms’ ad networks said they would support a “Do Not Track” browser option.

The US has advocated since 2010 for “Do Not Track”, a one-click option to prevent information gathered while web browsing being shared with third parties…………..

 

Gingrich: Obama Called for More ‘Big Government’ Tuesday, 24 Jan 2012 11:22 PM

President Ronald Reagan meets with Congressman...

Gingrich: Obama Called for More ‘Big Government‘ Tuesday, 24 Jan 2012 11:22 PM

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Newt Gingrich released the following statement responding to President Obama’s State of the Union address: We have a crisis of work in this country and tonight President Obama proposed nothing in the way of policy changes that will get us to robust job creation and dramatic economic growth. Instead, the president described his conviction that his big government is built to last and should be paid for with higher taxes. But bigger government and higher taxes will not lead to jobs and growth. Bigger government and higher taxes will instead lead to more people on food stamps, a situation which the President and his party defend as a fair outcome. Here we have to confront the truth about President Obama. Economic growth and prosperity is not really at the top of his agenda. He will always prefer a food stamp economy to a paycheck economy and call it fair. For the president and a large part of the political class, it’s about their power, their right to rule. They just want to take money from Joe the Plumber – the small business people who makes over 90 per cent of the new jobs — and redistribute it to the government bureaucracy and their political friends and allies. That’s why so much of that nearly trillion-dollar stimulus didn’t create jobs but just went into the pockets of special interests who support President Obama and the leadership of the Democratic Party. No better example of this exists than in the crisis of American energy. President Obama and his political allies – not of few of whom love living in energy inefficient houses or driving gas-guzzling luxury vehicles – openly admit they want gas prices to remain high so that the rest of America will learn to live more modestly. They think it’s good for rest of us. Only recently, the president canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have created countless new jobs and helped America on the way to energy independence because he wanted to appease the far left of his party. And yet not a single word on the Keystone XL pipeline tonight. To create jobs and growth in this country, we must start with dramatic tax reform that lowers taxes and maximizes capital investment and job creation. We must return to a dollar as good as gold whose purchasing power is the same in thirty years as it is today. We must dramatically expand American energy production. We must have smarter regulation at the same time we abolish destructive and costly regulatory systems beginning with Obamacare,Dodd-Franks, and Sarbanes-Oxley. And finally, unlike the current administration, we must have faith in job creators. With these policies the state of the union will be much better. They will create an explosion in job creation and lead to robust economic growth and a return to prosperity. Furthermore, a paycheck economy will put us on a path to balanced budgets and paying down our national debt. © Newsmax. All rights reserved.

Ron Paul Arrested By TSA! “Police State? Really?”

Wake up America!

Ron Paul Slams “Out Of Control Police State” After Rand Paul Detained By TSA

Congressman renews his call to abolish agency that “gropes and grabs” Americans

GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement on his campaign website this afternoon, following his son Rand’s treatment at the hands of the TSA in Nashville.

“The police state in this country is growing out of control.  One of the ultimate embodiments of this is the TSA that gropes and grabs our children, our seniors, and our loved ones and neighbors with disabilities.  The TSA does all of this while doing nothing to keep us safe.

“That is why my ‘Plan to Restore America,’ in additional to cutting $1 trillion dollars in federal spending in one year, eliminates the TSA.

“We must restore the freedom and respect for liberty that once made American the greatest nation in human history.  I am deeply committed to doing that as President of the United States.”

The website also posted a picture of Senator Rand Paul talking to reporters following the incident with the TSA:

Congressman Paul has been a long time critic of the TSA. In 2010 he introduced into the House the “American Traveler Dignity Act,” which would remove TSA agents’ immunity from prosecution for implementing invasive pat-down procedures. Paul re-introduced the legislation in the summer.

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Last week the Insider Report disclosed that an Israeli teenager identified only as “OxOmer” launched a cyberwar counterattack against Saudi hackers who divulged tens of thousands of Israeli credit card numbers on the Internet.

Now the Saudi hackers have struck again, attacking the websites of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al Israel Airlines.

And once again OxOmer has retaliated, bringing down the official websites of Saudi Arabia’s Monetary Agency and Abu Dhabi’s Securities Exchange on Tuesday.

In the new attacks on Israel, “what was hacked was our main website, which provides information,” Idit Yaaron, a Tel Aviv Stock Exchange spokeswoman, said on Monday. “The trading computer was not hacked and trading is going on as usual.”

El Al issued a statement saying it was taking measures to protect its website and warned there may be more disruptions.

OxOmer claims he is 17 years old and belongs to a four-member team of hackers who call themselves Israel Defenders. In the earlier counterattack, they published hundreds of Saudi credit card numbers. They told the Jerusalem Post they were also behind the new attacks on the Saudi and Abu Dhabi sites.

They said in a message on a forum that their actions came “because lame hackers from Saudi Arabia decided to launch an attack against Israeli sites.”

The cyberwar shows no signs of ending. The Saudi hacker who calls himself OxOmar told the Post he would continue to organize attacks on Israeli sites until the government apologized for what he called “genocide against Palestine.”

And Israeli hacker OxOmer warned: “If the lame attacks from Saudi Arabia will continue, we will move to the next level, which will disable these sites longer term.”

Also on Monday, a pro-Israeli hacker named Hannibal opened up another front in the cyberwar, publishing the details of 30,000 Facebook account holders from Arab countries, and threatening to publish information about bank accounts and credit cards belonging to Arab citizens if the attacks on Israeli sites continue.

Then on Wednesday, Arab hackers broke into the server of Israel’s Anti-Drug Authority and redirected visitors to a website showing images of Palestinian gunmen and the words “death to Israel” and “Gaza hackers were here.”

A group of Israeli hackers calling themselves the “IDF Team” retaliated on Thursday by disabling the websites of the Arab Bank of Palestine and the UAE’s central bank, the Post reported.

The Israeli hackers threatened to “disable stock market sites, government sites, and sites related to economy and even security.”

The cyberwar continues.

Where Is Waldo?

Barack Obama, Sr.

Here is an interesting read for some of you. Really makes you wonder, what is going on and why we aren’t privy to this information.
One man’s opinion:

WHERE ARE OBAMA’S GIRLFRIENDS?

Think about this….

I hadn’t thought about this – but where are Obama’s past girlfriends –
Surely he had at least one? No past girl friends popping up anywhere?
Strange – strange to the point of being downright weird!

OK, this is just plain old common sense, no political agendas for either
Side. Just common knowledge for citizens of a country, especially American
Citizens, who know every little tidbit about every other president (and
Their wives) that even know that Andrew Jackson’s wife smoked a corn cob
Pipe and was accused of adultery, or that Lincoln never went to school or
Kennedy wore a back brace, or Truman played the piano.

We are Americans! Our media vets these things out! We are known for our
Humanitarian interests and caring for our ‘fellow man.’ We care, but none
Of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own
Resident.
Honestly, and this is a personal thing… But it’s bugged me for years
That no one who ever dated him ever showed up. Taken his charisma, which
Caused the women to be drawn to him so obviously during his campaign, looks
Like some lady would not have missed the opportunity.

We all know about JFK’s magnetism, McCain was no monk, Palin’s courtship
And even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden’s aneurisms are no secret.
Look at Cheney and Clinton-we all know about their heart problems. How
Could I have left out Wild Bill before or during the White House?

Nope… Not one lady has stepped up and said, “He was soooo shy,” or “What
A great dancer!” Now look at the rest of what we know… No classmates, not
Even the recorder for the Columbia class notes ever heard of him.

Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Check for groomsmen. Then
Get the footage of the graduation ceremony.

Has anyone talked to the professors? Isn’t it odd that no one is bragging
That they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos? Every president
Provides the public with all their photos, etc. For their library. What has
He released? Nada – other than what was in this so-called biography! And
Experts who study writing styles etc. Claim it was not O’s own words or
Typical of his speech patterns, etc.

Does this make any of you wonder?

Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama’s past, saying they
Knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc? Not one person has
Ever come forward from his past.

This should really be a cause for great concern. Did you see the movie
Titled, The Manchurian Candidate?

Let’s face it. As insignificant as we all are… Someone whom we went to
School with remembers our name or face… Someone remembers we were the
Clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
About us.

George Stephanopoulos, ABC News said the same thing during the 2008
Campaign. Even George questions why no one has acknowledged that the
President was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made
Impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos was a classmate of Obama at
Columbia-class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him. Since
He is such a great orator, why doesn’t anyone in Obama’s college class
Remember him? And, why won’t he allow Columbia to release his records? Do
You like millions of others, simply assume all this is explainable – even
Though no one can?

NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA

Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400
ColumbiaUniversity students from the period when Obama claims to have been
There, but not one remembers him For example,Wayne Allyn Root was (like
Obama) a political science major at Columbia , who graduated in 1983. In
2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that
Knew him, and they all know me. I don’t have a single classmate who ever
Knew Barack Obama at Columbia … EVER!

Nobody recalls him.

Root adds that he was, “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and says,
“You don’t get more exact or closer than that.. Never met him in my life,
don’t know anyone who ever met him.”

At our 20th class reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker
of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody
even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of
the, as we say in New York , ‘the macha’ who knows everybody, has yet to
find a person, a human who ever met him.”

Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s yearbook, and Obama
consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia ,
provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or
friends while at Columbia .

How can this be?

NOTE: Wayne Allyn Root can easily be verified. He graduated valedictorian
from his high school, Thornton-DonovanSchool , then graduated from
ColumbiaUniversity in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same ’83
class in which Barack Hussein Obama states he was.

Some other interesting questions.

Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002?

Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by court order?

According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama – but 27
Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases..

WHAT!?

The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he
is never reported to have lived.

No wonder all his records are sealed!

Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere, someone had to
know him in school… before he “reorganized” Chicago and burst upon the
scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention and made us swoon with his charm,
poise, and speaking pizzazz.

One of the biggest CONS this country has ever seen, and getting away with
it. This is scary on many levels! He’s the most dishonest deceiving liar to
ever darken the White House,,,,,,,,,

 

 

If you got to the bottom of this piece, it really makes you wonder! What IS the truth!?

Let Us pray for the Slain!

Six Nato soldiers killed in Afghan helicopter crash

Map

Six Nato soldiers have been killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, the worst crash since 30 soldiers died last August.

A Nato statement said the helicopter came down in the south of the country.

Nato said no insurgent activity had been reported in the area at the time. The cause of Thursday’s crash is now being investigated.

No further details of the crash would be released until the families of those on board had been informed, Nato said.

“The cause of the crash is under investigation, however initial reporting indicates there was no enemy activity in the area at the time of the crash,” a spokesman from the International Security Assistance Force led by Nato said on Friday.

The British Ministry of Defence said there were no UK soldiers involved.

In August 2011, 30 soldiers, including 22 US Navy Seal commandos, died in a helicopter crash in the east of Afghanistan.

They were aboard a Chinook helicopter that went down in a district of Wardak province, west of Kabul. Officials, witnesses and the Taliban have said it was shot down by insurgents during a combat mission.

The crash happened on the same day at least seven civilians died in a suicide attack at an airport used by international forces in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar.

The attacker, driving a car, detonated explosives close to a gate at the perimeter of the airport. Afghan officials said the victims included two children.(Love of Alah)

In Your Face America!


A photo released by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps purports to show the RQ-170 drone that was reported crash in December. (Sepahnews via Associated Press) TEHRAN — For the American government, the crash of the RQ-170 drone in Iran was an embarrassment. For the Iranian government, it was a propaganda victory.

And for at least one company, according to state radio, it could be a windfall.

An Iranian firm, seeking to capitalize on the frenzy that followed the crash of the drone — and American calls to have it returned — is now producing miniaturized toy versions of the craft. Most of the toys, which come in several colors and are made of Iranian plastic, have already been snapped up by Iranian government organizations, according to the group that manufactures them.

At least one model — a pink one — has been reserved for President Obama.

“He said he wanted it back, and we will send him one,” said Reza Kioumarsi, the head of cultural production at the Ayeh Art group.

 Ayeh Art group designs “cultural products” — mugs with verses of the Koran printed on them, for instance, and small buttons picturing mosques. This month, the firm began producing a 1:80 scaled model of the RQ-170, the sophisticated drone that was being operated by the CIA when it crashed in eastern Iran. The firm is now making 2,000 of them a day.

“This is not made in China,” Kioumarsi stressed.

The toys come with a transparent plastic stand emblazoned with a quotation from Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic: “We will put America under our feet.”

The products made by Ayeh Art Group are not widely known in Tehran, but Kioumarsi said he was confident that the model drones would sell like hotcakes.

The Iranian government, meantime, has shown no indication that it will be returning the real RQ-170 to the United States. Last week, the Foreign Ministry demanded an apology first.
