The Secretive Company That Might End Privacy as We Know It

quote [ ?It?s creepy what they?re doing, but there will be many more of these companies. There is no monopoly on math,? said Al Gidari, a privacy professor at Stanford Law School. ?Absent a very strong federal privacy law, we?re all screwed.? ]

Uuuh, the spying game is on and onner.

Read in extended.

Las Vegas man, 93, opens fire on apartment maintenance worker

After allowing the female employee to leave, Thomas allegedly shot the male worker in the lower body at point-blank range. The victim was sitting in a chair and crumpled to the ground, in the disturbing footage. ]

Ahh, the old well regulated militia just getting a little practice in...

Government website altered to show pro-Iran message and photo of bloodied Trump in apparent hack: report

quote [ A government website was reportedly altered on Saturday to depict an image of President Trump bleeding from his mouth while getting punched in the face by a person wearing an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps symbol. ]

This is kind of funny...but it?s also a message.

Afghan Papers Inadvertently Document WaPo’s Role in Spreading Official Lies

quote [ If the Post is now publishing material demonstrating that US officials have been ?following the same talking points for 18 years,? emphasizing how they are ?making progress,? ?especially? when the war is ?going badly,? shouldn?t the paper acknowledge that it has been cheerleading this same line for all of those 18 years? Doesn?t it have a responsibility to examine how it served as a primary vehicle for those officials to spread these same ?talking points? to spin the coverage in the desired fashion? ]

After 18 Years of US Occupation, Poll Finds Zero Percent of Afghans Thriving, 85 Percent "Suffering"

Already seeing plenty of headlines, social media posts, and memes trying to demonize Iran in the same way we do every other country the US sticks their nose into. Even saw a WMD style accusation floating around. I should hope those on the "left" remember that we're against war because it's wrong, not because Trump didn't get authorization or some legalese bullshit... but I don't have my hopes up.

Risking food safety, USDA plans to let slaughterhouses self-police

quote [ A new rule, finalized today, would reduce the number of government food safety inspectors in pork plants by 40 percent and remove most of the remaining inspectors from production lines. In their place, a smaller number of company employees ? who are not required to receive any training ? would conduct the ?sorting? tasks that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) previously referred to as ?inspection.? The rule would also allow companies to design their own microbiological testing programs to measure food safety rather than requiring companies to meet the same standard. ]

The free market will solve it. You know, when safe food isn't as profitable as unsafe food, the poor have no choice, and we just accept food-related death as a normal part of life.

Harvesting the Blood of America's Poor: The Latest Stage of Capitalism

quote [ The number of collection centers in the United States has more than doubled since 2005 and blood now makes up well over 2 percent of total U.S. exports by value. To put that in perspective, Americans? blood is now worth more than all exported corn or soy products that cover vast areas of the country?s heartland. ]

Ex-cop details NYPD ?collar quotas? ? arrest black and Hispanic men, ?no cuffs on soft targets? of Jews, Asians, whites: court docs

quote [ Cops who arrested black men were rewarded with more overtime, a now-retired officer, Pierre Maximilien writes in an explosive declaration filed Monday in a discrimination lawsuit brought by Sgt. Edwin Raymond and four other cops.

The declaration is one of the latest developments in a long-running case brought by black and Hispanic cops who charge they were forced to arrest more blacks and Hispanics than other groups. They were treated harshly and denied promotions if they refused, the lawsuit alleges. ]

It was known this activity went on, but more cops are coming forward about it. Best if taken in combination with the NYC subway stabber case in the extended.

Zimmerman is represented by Larry Klayman, a high-profile legal crusader tied to conservative causes and the founder of Judicial Watch before splitting with the activist group. ]

And what fine upstanding citizen doesn't want to make money off of the family of the boy he killed?
