Perplexing discrepancy

"Feds Accused of Harassing “Boston Bomber” Friends, and Friends of Friends" (quite amazing):
"In the six months since the Boston Marathon bombing, the FBI has by all appearances been relentlessly intimidating, punishing, deporting and, in one case, shooting to death, persons connected, sometimes only tangentially, with the alleged bombers."
and:
"In the case of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, we’ve noticed a perplexing discrepancy. While the FBI claims that it began interviewing the Tsarnaevs in response to a request from the Russians, the New York Times has cited a meeting that would predate the Russian request:
“In January 2011, two counterterrorism agents from the bureau’s Boston field office interviewed Tamerlan and family members, a senior law enforcement official said.”
Yet, in an article that appeared three days later, the same authors reported that,
“The first Russian request came in March of 2011 through the F.B.I.’s office in the United States Embassy in Moscow.”
If these dates are correct, then the FBI was talking to Tamerlan before the Russians asked them to. Why? (An email from WhoWhatWhy to Eric Schmitt, the Times’s lead reporter on the two articles, remains unanswered.)"

More on the revolution

Based I guess on the theory that the only thing wrong with the United States is that the 99% have too much of the pie and baloney:  "“Riots always begin typically the same way”: Food stamp shutdown looms Friday".  It is true that food insecurity is one of the few direct routes to revolution (see what has been going on in places like Syria and Egypt).  Comment by AnonKopimi:
"Pictures of National Guardsmen shooting down rank upon rank of poor people in a food riot will only galvanize the Revolution to the point of no return."
The teapartying of food stamps is particularly odd when you consider that the demeaning concept of food stamps was developed for the purpose of enriching that part of the 1% that owns agribusiness stock (not to mention the retailers and fast food franchises that are able to grossly underpay their workers knowing that the some of the balance will be made up with food stamps).

The 1% seems to have concluded that Total Information Awareness is the only thing standing between their stacks of money and the glorious revolution, but Barry's unwavering devotion to the cause is weird:  "White House: Feinstein Not Accurate".  The Europeans are really angry about this, but the Democrats can't even avoid mangling the spin?  That's pure devotion to the NSA.  I've always thought it odd that Barry took immediate and full political ownership of the NSA scandal, instead of blaming it all on Bush and dong nothing by conducting endless 'studies' leading nowhere.

"Real Lives Pt. 4"  The real problem with Obamacare, as awful as it is, is that it frees at least some people to make big economic decisions in their lives that aren't entirely dependent on access to health care.  People in very poor countries have a basic freedom that Americans don't have.

The Boston Marathon bombing patsy problem

Skirting the Boston Marathon bombing patsy problem.

"New York Post's Boston 'Bag Men' Front Page Called 'A New Low,' 'Appalling' (PHOTO)"  "'Bag Men' Sue New York Post Over Boston Marathon Bombing Cover" "‘Bag men’ sue New York Post over Boston Marathon bombing portrayal".  How is it that the New York Post coincidentally picked a picture of two young Muslim males carrying packs?  Did the authorities know a priori that the perps has to be two young Muslim males carrying packs, but due to a clerical error picked the wrong picture of two young Muslim males carrying packs to send to the Post?  The images are described by the Post as "photos being distributed by law-enforcement officials among themselves".  I have to wonder whether these two completely innocent guys were the backup patsies, to be blamed in case something went wrong with the case against the first set of innocent patsies.

"Revelation of link between Boston bomber, triple murder upsets friends"  This is based entirely on what the FBI claims was said by an interview subject who unfortunately can't be further questioned as he was murdered by the FBI.

Apologies all around

"MJ Rosenberg owes Ali Abunimah an apology for false accusations of anti-Semitism"  When you consider that:
  • all gentiles are Jew-haters for some magical reason that cannot be explained; and
  • anybody who fails to accept with gratitude the entire Zionist plan for a Jewish empire extending from the Nile to the Euphrates is, by definition, an anti-Semite
you can immediately see that an apology would be ridiculous. The fault lies entirely with those appeasers who bend themselves into pretzel shapes in a a vain attempt to be 'respectable gentiles' worthy of being invited to nice lunches and conferences with the Jews to agree to the Jewish plans.  Once you accept the Jewish world-view by bending your language in a way you hope will please your Jewish masters, an impossible task - all the while fooling yourself by claiming that your fine distinctions between 'anti-Semitic' speech and kosher speech are an attempt to avoid bigotry when they are really just your method of expressing fealty to the powerful - it is impossible to stand on your own two feet long enough to be able to put up any resistance to the Jewish plans.  It is no wonder the Jews have been so successful in building their empire when all their supposed opponents have accepted their Zionist view of the world.  The only apology owing is from Ali Abunimah and his ilk to Gilad Atzmon.

"Bleak House" by Charles Simic.  The extent of the suffering is amazing, and a complete secret, as the media fails to mention it.

"Why I Will Never, Ever, Go Back to the United States"  One of the signs of totalitarianism, which first-worlders have made great fun of over the years in traveling to undeveloped countries, is that uneducated thugs often end up with unchecked amounts of government sanctioned power.  Note that the comments are almost all against the probable terrorist.

Saudi transitional politics

From the Angry Arab:
"From Laura: "Saudi lobbied heavily to get the Security Council seat 2014-2016 and spent money training their NY staff, had even planned what issues to raise during their presidency next July. Interestingly (ironically/ridiculously) they are posing this last-minute turn-around as a principled position over responsibility to protect, Palestine and making ME a weapons-free zone. Rumour has it the decision came from higher up than the UN ambassador. Wonder what Prince Bandar's agenda looked like the past few weeks in Washington... "
There is no way that this sudden 180 degree turn in an area of such perceived prestige can represent anything other than a power play at a very high level.

Saudi mysteries

"Why Do The Saudis Want Then Decline A UNSC Seat?"  Turning down what they fought, scraped, and bribed for.  With a weird and gratuitous reference to the plight of the Palestinians.

Questionable ultra-Zionist source, but still:  "Mossad Assassinates Iran Revolutionary Guard Commander, Prince Bandar’s Secret Meeting With Israelis on Iran":
"In a related matter, another bombshell (Hebrew) dropped today.  Israel media reported that senior Israeli security officials met in Israel with a high-level Gulf state official to coordinate a military strategy against Iran.  Israel’s Channel 2 TV news also said the official, from  state with no diplomatic relations with Israel, came to Israel for the consultations.  Though the reports did not name him, my source says that he was none other than the infamous Prince Bandar ibn Sultan.  Lately he’s been known as one of the primary arms suppliers for the Syrian rebels.  But his secret portfolio includes all Saudi security engagements in the region including Iran and Syria.  This would mark the first time such a senior Saudi official has broken the Arab taboo against visiting Israel."
"Top minister: Makes sense for Israel, Arabs to cooperate on Iran":
"A carelessly edited version of the 2013 Israeli state budget revealed that Israel opened a diplomatic office somewhere in the Persian Gulf between 2010 and 2012. Foreign Ministry sources asked the Finance Ministry to remove the sensitive clause from the budget — and from the public’s eye."
The Saudi royals allowed Bandar Bush to run his psychopathic plans out of desperate fears over the Arab Spring. All the plans - the war on Syria (and when Assad kicks the craziest jihadists out of Syria, a lot of them will come home to roost, and fight, in Saudi Arabia), isolating Iran, and cooperating with Israel - are backfiring in a big way. Have the Saudis finally come to their senses?  Along with all of Bandar's massive failures of diplomacy and war scheming, the Saudi royals also have to factor in the fact that the United States no longer has a functioning government and that China and the rest of the world are not prepared to go down with the American ship. 

If getting the Security Council seat was part of Bandar's plan, a public rejection of the seat, along with a mention of the Palestinians, the victims of Bandar's Israeli pals, may be the official announcement that Bandar Bush is on the way out.

Blackmailable

"Anne Barnard wants to absolve the Fee Syrian Army from the atrocities in Latakia when they clearly were involved and there is footage of their presence"  The point of the completely bizarre and unexpected Human Rights Watch report on . . . um . . . human rights is to participate in the American campaign to differentiate between the 'bad rebels' and the 'good rebels'.  World Jewry has instructed the American government to keep the war going in Syria as long as possible, and that requires sanitizing the actions of the Fee Syrian Army - the Angry Arab's clever name for them - while putting all the blame for the numerous atrocities on 'al Qaeda' or the Syrian government.

"The Real Story of Lavabit's Founder" (my emphasis in red):
"On October 2, a raft of court documents was unsealed, and we now know why Ladar’s explanation for taking Lavabit offline was so oblique. (The order to unseal the documents is still under seal, making it unclear why they were unsealed, but it seems that when Ladar’s case made its way up the chain, an appellate court judge decided he’d had enough of the secrecy.) As the FBI sought to tap Lavabit in a novel way, an effort that began in June, Ladar was under a gag order to remain silent about the process, including but not limited to revealing information about the target(s) of the eavesdropping (again, one of which everyone has assumed, with good reason, to be Snowden).

Here’s something else I think I can report: agents of the federal government have broken the internet’s standard form of encryption. This is where the gun comes into play.

Most encrypted online communication uses a protocol called secure sockets layer, or SSL. To oversimplify, SSL protected the emails, passwords, and other information sent to and from Lavabit’s servers. To do this, a user employed a public key to encrypt an email that could then only be decrypted with a corresponding private key, which in theory would only be known by the intended recipient. Each connection was protected by a third key, called a session key.

The FBI needed two things: a warrant to see metadata (the recipient of an email and time it was sent, for example, but not the content of the email) and a method to decrypt the SSL connections. The warrant was easy. The ability to decrypt SSL connections was problematic.

Normally, an email service logs metadata, and those logs can be monitored by the government. But Lavabit wasn’t a normal email service. Ladar engineered it so that such metadata were never kept on his servers. So when the feds said they wanted to monitor the email of the target(s) in real time, and when they asked for Lavabit’s private SSL master key to do so, Ladar deduced that they’d come up with a way to figure out those third keys, the session keys. Until now, uncovering a session key was thought to be theoretically possible but also so difficult that it would be impractical. Ladar realized the FBI had been able to “reduce” the problem such that it had the ability to uncover session keys in real time. This meant that once they had access to the private SSL keys, they would be able to monitor everyone who was accessing Lavabit and examine everything being sent to and from its servers. 

“Nobody knows that capability exists,” Ladar says. He admits he’s just guessing, but then, he would be in a better position than anyone on the planet to guess about such a thing. “That’s why they were trying to keep it secret. They have figured out how to listen to a large number of encrypted conversations in real time. They’ve probably uncovered a weakness in the SSL algorithm. The feeling I got is that they can do it with a single device that has specialized hardware inside it.”

Assange (my emphasis in red; the whole thing is very good):
"Ninety-eight percent of Latin American telecommunications to the rest of the world - that means SMS, phone, email etc. - passes through the US. That’s a function of the geography of the Americas, and as a result the US has what its intelligence agencies call a ‘home field advantage’, where they can easily intercept these communications that pass through them, index them, store aspects of them forever, and therefore gain understanding of how Latin America is behaving, where it is moving, its economic transfers, the activities of its leaders and major players.

That permits the US to predict in some ways the behavior of Latin American leaders and interests, and it also permits them to blackmail. Nearly every significant person in Latin America is blackmailable by the US, because the US has access to those telecommunications records that have passed through the US, as well as other records it has obtained within LA by planting fiber optic taps, surveillance equipment at embassies and DA bases."

Thanks for everything

"For feds, there is more at stake in Tsarnaev case than just losing":
"More and more in recent decades, a major reason for federal prosecutors to want to avoid trials is not just to eliminate the risk of their losing, but, rather, as we learned recently from the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, to avoid having the public learn some of the secrets of how federal agents and prosecutors have operated of late.
The danger of having more federal criminal jury trials is not that the government might lose verdicts, but, rather, that casting daylight on increasingly corrupt and unlawful federal tactics risks a loss of public confidence in the federal criminal justice system. Those of us who have dealt with the Department of Justice and the FBI and other agencies in recent years, especially in what might be dubbed the age of terror, harbor few remaining illusions."
Rhetorical question:  "Why did BBC let Simon Schama make "moral case for Israel" unchallenged?":
"Even Schama himself, in the interview that follows, can’t seem to believe what the BBC let him get away with.

“ ‘I know,’ [Schama] says, laughing, ‘people were tweeting to me last night in amazement, ‘Is this the BBC?’,” Pfeffer reports."

Better choice of host

"Your Female Ancestors Were Almost Certainly Non-Jews, New Study Finds":
"Proponents of Ashkeanzi gene theory reacted badly to Richard's study.
Doron M. Behar, of the Gene by Gene company in Houston and a co-author of the 2006 survey, said he disagreed with Dr. Richards’ conclusions but declined to explain his reasons, saying they had to appear first in a scientific journal.
The idea that one scientist whose work has been clearly refuted by another scientist cannot tell the media why that refutation is wrong but at the same time is willing to say that it is wrong is ridiculous, especially when that refuted scientist owns a for-profit business that profts off his mistaken research. If Behar had a legitimate refutation we would have heard a summary of it already – but we have not, and that almost certainly means Behar does not have one."
Sailer: "Genetic research on the ancestry of Jewish populations tends to get politicized because of the sneaking suspicion that the average Palestinian may be more closely related to the Hebrews of 70 AD than is, say, Bibi Netanyahu." It is not a sneaking suspicion, it is indubitably true.

Considering that Judaism is defined by matrilineal descent, and the claim to the stolen land is based on a claim of ancient ownership, Zionism has to be the largest and most audacious con game in history.

Land of shadows

With all his many problems - the attempt at a War For The Jews against Syria and the myriad of continuing Wars For The Jews elsewhere, the NSA scandal, and the appalling consistency at taking the side of the 1% against everybody else on every possible issue - Barry still has a chance to be numbered among the great American Presidents.  He was smart enough to take the Russian offer to side-step the Syrian war, and he now has a chance to make peace with Iran and end permanently the Jewslavery of the United States and the concomitant series of ruinous Wars For The Jews.

His chances aren't good.  World Jewry knows that losing the War For The Jews against Syria put a big dent in the theory of AIPAC omnipotence that governs American politics, and another loss would put an end to the Era of Wars For The Jews.  The indecision of the Jewish billionaires that allowed peace to sneak by in Syria will not be repeated now that the stakes for the Zionist Empire are so obviously higher.  Still, even the slightest possibility - I'd put the chances of the United States running its own foreign affairs in its own national interest at no more than 20% - that Obama can escape the Jewish war racket is amazing.

"Iranian FM: Israel can't kill all our scientists":
"Iran's top diplomat said "a smile attack is much better than a lie attack. Mr. Netanyahu and his colleagues have been saying since 1991 - and you can refer to your records - that Iran is six months away from a nuclear weapon. And we are how many years, 22 years after that and they are still saying we're six months away from nuclear weapons.


"We don't want nuclear weapons. We believe nuclear weapons are detrimental to our security," he told ABC, and then continued his attack on the Jewish state, saying "Israel has 200 nuclear warheads. Israel is the source of insecurity in our region. Israel is the source of aggression and violation of human rights of the Palestinian people. It should not have the audacity to continue to lie to the American people and to the world by - and mislead everybody.""
