July 15, 2015 by legitgov

Footage obtained from McCain staffer shows ISIL executions shot in studio | 14 July 2015 | Leaked footage obtained from a staffer of US Senator John McCain (R-I-CIA-SIS ally) shows the making of an ISIL "execution" video similar to the videos portraying the beheading of James Foley and other victims. In the three-and-a-half minute video, ISIL executioner Jihadi John (aka Mohammed Emwazi) can be seen standing in front of a green screen, beside a kneeling hostage wearing an orange jumpsuit and a green screen hood in a fully equipped studio in the presence of a production crew, the Leaksource website recently reported. The desert style set and wind machine effects, share similarities to the beheading videos ISIL released of Steven Sotloff, David Haines, and Alan Henning. [Note: this does not prove that the execution is not real.]

Insane in the membrane: Senate bill would force social media to report 'terrorist activity' to feds | 08 July 2015 | Social media operators such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube would have to notify federal authorities of online "terrorist activity," according to the text of a bill approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee and seen by Reuters on Wednesday. The types of communication include postings related to "explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction," according to the text. An official familiar with the bill said it was sent to the Senate floor for a vote. The official said its main purpose was to give social media companies additional legal protection if they reported to the authorities on traffic circulated by their users, rather than coerce them to spy on users.

July 15, 2015 by legitgov

Court asked to kill off NSA's 'zombie dragnet' of Americans' bulk phone data | 14 July 2015 | The leading civil liberties group in the United States has requested a federal court to stop the National Security Agency from collecting Americans’ phone data in bulk through the end of the year. While the surveillance dragnet was phased out by Congress and Barack Obama last month, an American Civil Liberties Union suit seeks to end a twilight, zombie period of the same US phone records collection, slated under the new law to last six months. "Today the government is continuing -- after a brief suspension -- to collect Americans' call records in bulk on the purported authority of precisely the same statutory language this court has already concluded does not permit it," the ACLU writes in a motion filed on Tuesday before the second circuit court of appeals.

ACLU asks court to shut down NSA surveillance 'for good' | 14 July 2015 | Civil liberties activists on Tuesday asked a federal court to block intelligence agents' bulk collection of Americans' phone data, months after the court called the program illegal.

Months after the Second Circuit Court of Appeals said that the controversial program "exceeds the scope of what Congress has authorized," the advocacy group told the court to shut it down for good.

Their stated reason for the policy is because 'The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves,'" it said.

Mega barf alert: Scott Walker Makes 2016 Run Official | 13 July 2015 | Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker sought to portray himself not only as a fighter but a winner when he when he became the 15th Republican to enter the 2016 presidential race on Monday. Like he has done during his frequent visits to early voting states, Walker used his 2016 kickoff to highlight his battles with the labor unions in his state and his success winning stealing three elections in four years. Walker has at times stumbled with his frontrunner status, with even some supporters worried about his foreign policy chops. He raised eyebrows earlier this year when he compared his battle with the unions to ISIS and has since spent recent months studying [LOL!] international affairs.
