According to the complaint, which was filed Tuesday in Virginia federal court, Snowden's work for the CIA and NSA required secrecy agreements. The DOJ argues that he violated his "non-disclosure obligations to the United States" by not handing over the book for review before it was published.

'Israel at historic juncture:' Netanyahu refuses to concede as Gantz claims 'mission accomplished' | 18 Sept 2019 | Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to fight on even as exit polls showed him tied or lagging behind his main opposition rival, with a slim chance of assembling the coalition needed for a fifth term. "We won't have and can't have a government dependent on anti-Zionist Arab parties," Netanyahu proclaimed as the crowd of his supporters booed and chanted 'we don't want unity.' The embattled PM stopped short of claiming a victory - or conceding his defeat - saying instead "we are waiting for the real results. One thing is clear: Israel is at a historic juncture."

Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of sponsoring oil-plant attack, says it 'couldn't have originated in Yemen' | 18 Sept 2019 | Saudi Arabia has claimed that Iran was behind attacks on its oil treatment facilities, presenting wreckage of drones and missiles as 'definitive proof' of Tehran's involvement. Speaking to the press on Wednesday, a spokesman for the Saudi Ministry of Defense displayed what he said was wreckage from the projectiles used in the strikes on petrol plants in Abqaiq and Khurais last weekend. The type of weapons used proved that the assault "could not have originated in Yemen," Colonel Turki al-Malki claimed. [Right, it likely originated in Saudi Arabia. A false flag to drag the US into another war in the Middle East, at the behest of the Deep State.]

After nearly five hours of testimony, the top Democrat on the committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, told Lewandowski his "behavior in this hearing room has been completely unacceptable," and said holding him "in contempt" is "certainly under consideration."...Lewandowski was following White House orders not to discuss confidential conversations with the president beyond what was already public in the former special counsel's report.

Swing-state voters oppose 'surprise' medical bill legislation, Trump pollster warns | 17 Sept 2019 | President Trump's campaign pollster is warning that swing-state voters oppose a bipartisan bill meant to protect patients from "surprise" medical bills they receive when going out of network for emergency care, according to a polling memo obtained exclusively by The Hill. A survey of voters in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania conducted by Tony Fabrizio, the president's campaign pollster, found that a majority of voters in three battleground states believe that health insurers should be on the hook when patients receive "surprise" medical bills for out-of-network emergencies. "Swing state voters see Surprise Medical Billing as a major problem and siding with Insurers who look to sidestep paying these bills is crossways with overwhelming voter sentiment," Fabrizio wrote in the polling memo.

"On a daily basis Yemen is being bombarded and innocent civilians are dying...so they have to retaliate," Rouhani explained.

NYT updates Kavanaugh 'bombshell' to note accuser doesn't recall alleged assault

NYT updates Kavanaugh 'bombshell' to note accuser doesn't recall alleged assault | 16 Sept 2019 | The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -- hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh. The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim, Harmon Joyce, said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode. The only firsthand account concerning the supposed attack in the original piece, which was published on Saturday, came from a Clinton-connected lawyer who claimed to have witnessed it.

But the Times omitted any reference to Keyser's comments in a widely panned article this weekend by Pogrebin and Kelly that was adapted from the book.

Big Brother Cometh: Massive License Plate Database Exceeds 150 Million

Big Brother Cometh: Massive License Plate Database Exceeds 150 Million | 16 Sept 2019 | Our worst fears about automatic license plate readers (ALPR) are much worse than we could have imagined. Two months ago, I warned everyone that police in Arizona were using ALPR's to "grid" entire neighborhoods. But this story brings public surveillance to a whole new level. Last month, Rekor Systems announced that they had launched the Rekor Public Safety Network (RPSN) which gives law enforcement real-time access to license plates. "Any state or local law enforcement agency participating in the RPSN will be able to access real-time data from any part of the network at no cost...With thousands of automatic license plate reading cameras currently in service that capture approximately 150 million plate reads per month, the network is expected to be live by the first quarter of 2020."

Kavanaugh 'must be impeached,' top Dems say, as new uncorroborated allegation surfaces

Kavanaugh 'must be impeached,' top Dems say, as new uncorroborated allegation surfaces | 15 Sept 2019 | Top 2020 Democratic contenders Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [and non-contenders] Kamala Harris, Beto O'Rourke, and Julian Castro announced on Sunday that Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh "must be impeached," after a new, uncorroborated and disputed allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh surfaced in a weekend New York Times piece. The revitalized, longshot push to get Kavanaugh removed from the high court comes as Democrats' apparent effort to impeach President Trump has largely stalled. Trump, for his part, suggested Sunday that Kavanaugh should sue for defamation. The Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connected nonprofit CEO Max Stier, [allgedly] saw Mr. Kavanaugh [engage in lewd behavior].

BBC tells schoolchildren there are 'over 100' genders | 13 Sept 2019 | The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) tells primary schoolchildren that there are over 100 genders as part of its "Teach" video series, which has some concerned parents and observers up in arms.

"We know that we have got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now." ...Telegraph columnist Celia Walden has written a scathing review of the program, which she calls "noxious nonsense" that poisons children's minds, a product of the modern "Emperor's New Clothes gender diversity narrative."

White House Is Considering Surveillance Plan That Wouldn't Stop Mass Shootings | 11 Sept 2019 | The White House is considering controversial pre-crime measures to study whether mass shootings could be prevented by surveilling mentally ill people for small behavior patterns that might predict violence. The former chairman of NBC Bob Wright, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, has informed top officials...on a new proposal to build a new research arm called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA) to find unconventional ways to address health problems, similar to what the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) does for the military, based on accounts from several people who have been briefed. Advisers to Wright put forward a three-page proposal -- called SAFEHOME for Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes -- which suggests the use of technology i.e. phones and smartwatches to detect when mentally ill people are about to commit violent acts.

But the 9th Circuit kept the injunction alive within the territorial boundaries of the circuit -- which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington. The Supreme Court's order was not a final ruling on the merits, but it at least temporarily ends the injunctions everywhere, and allow the policy to proceed nationwide while lower courts in the 9th Circuit address the case.
