Gentile whisperers

Tweet (Violet Blue):
"Really curious as to why this gov encryption story was published and then pulled: Archive: "
Explaining why congenital assholes like Mike McConnell, Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden are sounding relatively sane - hint: it's a trick: "The Red Herring of Digital Backdoors and Key Escrow Encryption":
"While many scientists and researchers ‒your author included‒ insist that key escrow is a ridiculous zombie idea, it’s important to recognize what’s being left out of the aforementioned discussion. Pay attention and you may detect a telltale whiff of public relations tradecraft in the air. Specifically, notice how the debate over back doors is almost entirely focused on back doors implemented through cryptographic technology.
This subtle misdirection shifts the conversation away from a different sort of back door currently being leveraged on a global scale. That would be back doors that are built upon zero-day exploits. An entire industry has emerged to cater to the growing demand for zero-day bugs and the tech monoliths have quietly provided assistance. For example it’s well documented that companies like Microsoft gave the NSA early access to information on zero-day bugs in their products.
By concentrating on key escrow the CEOs of Silicon Valley are able to conjure up the perception of an adversarial relationship with federal agencies. This is absolutely crucial because tech companies need to face the public wearing a white hat. In the aftermath of the PRISM scandal, where C-suite types were caught colluding with the government on a first-name basis, American executives are frantically trying to convince people on behalf of quarterly revenue that they’re siding with consumers against spying. An interesting but fundamentally flawed narrative, given how much economic espionage the government conducts and how much spying corporate America does. Who do you think benefits from this sort of mass surveillance?"
"The Cuckservative Phenomenon" by Kevin MacDonald.  The genius of the Southern strategy and other appeals to social triggers was to fool uneducated white trash into voting for Republican plutocrats whose class interests could not possibly be more different from the white trash.  The contradictions are finally exploding under the pressure of Trump and his unabashed appeal to racism under the guise of discussing immigration (there are real economic repercussions to mass immigration involving depression of wages, which is why mainstream Republicans like Jeb are so pro-immigration).  The pressures of the officially hidden American depression are devastating the 99%, requiring scapegoats.  It is telling that supremacists immediately reach for cuckoldry as a metaphor, given the psycho-sexual nature of supremacism (the horrible mass rape by the Red Army of German women at the close of WWII was a message delivered through race tainting, and the constant fantasy/fear of American white supremacists is rape of their women by black, and now Hispanic, men).

"Cruz says Iran could set off Electro Magnetic Pulse over east coast, killing 10s of millions"  You have to feel sorry for Cruz, whose plan to win involved taking the maximalist insane position on every mainstream Republican issue, only to be rendered irrelevant by Trump's taking the maximalist insane position on every non-mainstream Republican issue.

"Denmark Bans Kosher and Halal Animal Slaughter" This kind of legislation is inevitable in civilized places, meaning those who think they have to eat in a specific way are going to have to come up with new methods of killing.

"Wieseltier on Iran: Laughable"  Jews have done very well passing as Americans while giving Americans Zionist imperial advice.  This is the entire shtick of the concentration camp guard, who claims to be a true-blue American giving Americans advice based on solely American interests (you know, the kind of true-blue American who had to leave the USA based on the pressures of the horrible anti-Semitism he faced in America to become a concentration camp guard in Israel!). The Iran deal has pushed them to trying to pass pieces written for and to Jews as pieces written for Americans.  They've lost their talent as gentile whisperers.

"NYT Publishes A Lengthy Editors' Note About Its Mistaken Clinton Email Story"  Pre-President Hillary is so powerful she forced the NYT to change its reporting - twice! - and even forced the DOJ to change the underlying story.  The real story is that aspiring President Hillary wanted to run the State Department doing illegal and immoral things, and didn't want pesky problems with email evidence popping up of such crimes and misdemeanors.

"Pardon Snowden? Nah, White House Says":
""How does President Obama think Snowden should have 'constructively addressed these issues' when his administration has led the worst crackdown on national security and intelligence whistleblowers in U.S. history?" says Jesselyn Radack, an attorney for Snowden.
"The actual consequences of Snowden’s revelations have been an informed global debate that even the president acknowledges 'we needed to have,' two federal court decisions finding that the phone dragnet program [was] 'unlawful' and 'likely unconstitutional,' and the first significant intelligence reform legislation in 30 years."
Radack adds: "Civil disobedience does not require that a person of conscience go to jail. Snowden is not 'running away from his actions' or 'hid[ing] behind the cover of an authoritarian regime.' Snowden is in Russia because of the United States, which revoked his passport while he as transiting through there to Latin America.""
"U.S. dentist must have hated Cecil the lion: Mallick" Tweet (Harry Leslie Smith):
"If a dentist can afford to spend $50,000 to kill a lion it tells me the rich aren't taxed enough "
