Some surveillance experts said this represents the first case to surface of a U.S. Internet company agreeing to a spy agency's demand by searching all arriving messages, as opposed to examining stored messages or scanning a small number of accounts in real time.

The New York Times Paid No Taxes in 2014

October 2, 2016 by legitgov

The New York Times Paid No Taxes in 2014 | 02 Oct 2016 | The New York Times has excited the Clinton campaign and the rest of the media with a revelation that Republican nominee Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss in 1995 that might have resulted in him not paying taxes in some subsequent years. The implication, reinforced by CNN's [corporatist dirt-bag] Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday morning, is that Trump "avoided" paying taxes, when in fact his tax liability was zero. But the Times itself has "avoided" paying taxes -- in 2014, for example.

Terrorists mull 'chemical attack' in Aleppo to frame Syrian govt - Russia's Defense Ministry

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

Terrorists mull 'chemical attack' in Aleppo to frame Syrian govt - Russia's Defense Ministry | 29 Sept 2016 | Terrorist groups in Syria might use chemical weapons against civilians and the army in Aleppo in order to pin the blame for the atrocities on Damascus and further undermine the crumbling peace process in the war-torn country, the Russian Defense Ministry said. "It became known that terrorist groups are preparing provocative attacks with chemical weapons on Syrian army positions and residential areas in the east part of Aleppo to accuse government forces [of the attacks]," said Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, the first deputy chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff. The warning echoed Syrian UN envoy Bashar Ja'afari's proclamations earlier this week, when he told the UN Security Council that militants from the hardline Ahrar Al-Sham Islamist group are planning to use white phosphorus in an attack on civilians in order to later blame it on Syrian armed forces.

'Libertarian' Gary Johnson is stumped yet again when asked to name his favorite foreign leader

'I guess I'm having another Aleppo moment!': 'Libertarian' Gary Johnson is stumped yet again when asked to name his favorite foreign leader --Earlier this month, Johnson replied 'What is Aleppo?' when asked about the refugee crisis in the war-torn Syrian city | 29 Sept 2016 | Libertarian [sic] Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson fluffed another interview on Wednesday night. Johnson was a guest at a live town hall on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, who asked him to name his favorite world leader. And the ex-governor of New Mexico failed to name a single leader he respects from any country on the planet. Johnson admitted to having 'brain freeze' and even tried to avoid the question by mentioning his gaffe from earlier this month. [Pea-brain Gary Johnson advocates mandatory vaccines. Ergo, he is no libertarian. (Hillary Clinton has spoken in support of mandating vaccination. Donald Trump has asserted on Twitter that vaccines have in 'many' cases caused autism [and other side effects, including death].) Johnson is just another corporatist dirt-bag inserted into the rigged race. --LRP]
