James Comey, FBI director?

If Bernie needs any further proof of what an incredibly pathological and facile liar the woman is, all he needs to do is watch Trey Gowdy's questioning of James Comey on the findings of the FBI investigation into her emails. Comey tries to beat around the bush because he was complicit in handing her a 'Get out of jail free' card, but he basically spends ten minutes saying "Yes, she lied about that," to every question asked.

When Obama selected that assclown to head up his FBI, that told me a great deal about how Obama regarded the private (communications)/civil liberties for Americans.

Because although James Comey put up a front against the Bush Administration in March 2004, while Ashcroft was hospitalized, he did indeed previously authorize NSA spying on domestic communications - something which didn't come to light until the following year.

James Comey was and still is, a Republican. Those stripes don't fade away.

He, along with Ashcroft and the Bush administration - unleashed the illegal NSA spying programs on us, shortly after Dubya took office.

But people (especially die-hard Republicans) either forget that - or wish that other people would.

Republicans and Clintonesque Democrats - are in this whole fucking-us-over thing, together.

Good post Lafayette.

558,466 computers installed with pirated software.

I wonder if the FBI is going to make life as hard on the USNavy as they are on the owner of Kickass Torrentz..?

The lawsuit claims that Bitmanagement Software agreed to provide the Navy with 38 PC licenses to facilitate “testing, trial runs, and integration into Navy systems.” The Navy apparently asked that Bitmanagement disable the DRM it uses to limit software installations in order to test the software on the full range of relevant military equipment. Evidently this early pilot program went well, and the Navy determined it would deploy the software at scale and entered negotiations with Bitmanagement Software.

The Navy liked the software so much, they are alleged to have installed it on every PC within it's domain.

With very little fanfare... the 28 pages of redacted report were recently released . Thankfully it wasn't hidden inside of the entire report.

No wonder the Bush/Cheney regime didn't want this to ever see the light of day. Of course, it's still heavily re-dacted, but we can read between the lines sufficiently. Democrats and Republicans, trying for years to keep this information from the people who vote them into power. cussing

Heh, that administration stonewalled attempts to start an investigation, then under-funded their cherry picked panel, then Bush & Cheney themselves were interviewed together, off-the-record, not even under oath. Then they demanded that these 28 pages not be included.

This country didn't start to go down the drain when Obama took office, and it's hard to see how Hillary could take it much further down the sewer than these asshats already have.

This Cops Outta Control thing isn't some outlier, some new non-normal phenomenon that's only been noticed in the last few years.

And it didn't start with this - although this was a seminal moment in the time-line. The acquittal of the officers seen - inflicting the beat-down on Rodney King - was just more fuel on the fire. Anyone with eyeballs could watch this video clip and see that multiple law enforcement officers should have been convicted and served serious felony prison time. Yet, none did.

And what has really changed in the last 25 years? Hmmm... better film recording devices and millions more of them on the street. That's all. The bad-apple LEO behavior hasn't changed. And the 'good cops' aren't weeding their own garden efficiently and quickly enough.

At least four countries have issued travel warnings to its citizens of the dangers they may face traveling in the United States: The Bahamas, The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and New Zealand.

Let's face it. We've descended to the status of a dangerous third world country in the eyes of other nations.

When I've traveled abroad, I was always warned by friends and acquaintances - to obey the laws (if comprehensible) of wherever I was visiting. As I was more likely to be hassled or detained/arrested by officers than I was to be accosted or victimized by non-authorized criminals.

Is it any wonder that other countries advise their citizens to be ultra-wary of our LEO in this country, especially after we know about shit like this being routinely pulled?

Topic 5 dead police in Dallas
Posted 14 Jul 2016 23:27

Respectfully, this seems to be the main core of your belief system. I can respect your POV, but there are too many variables here to agree with you on this. We must fight fire with fire. Unless we completely completely disarm our citizens and outlaw firearms, with drastic penalties against those using them, we can NOT disarm our police force. Taser's don't work against AK-47's or even a typical Saturday-night Special or illegally obtained assault weapons. In a world where things like what happened in France today, it seems more important than ever to keep our men and women in blue armed. I will digress a bit and say that we could be using our swat teams and national guard more often, and not rely so much on the police to handle things like violent rioting and, ironically, anarchy in our streets.

The main core of my belief system? I've grown fairly pacifist. I own several rifles, handguns and a shotgun and I've not fired any of them since 2007. I've never stated that we should disarm our LEO (where'd that come from?) And definitely not to make light of the horror in Nice, overnight - but did you see how many bullets passed through the front of that truck the terrorist was driving? At least they were trying to stop him, but it did little good. Perhaps a pound of C4 would've done the trick.

Unfortunately, and like you said, nobodies fault. My thoughts on this are that our Police force are actually on pins and needles out there. They are playing a balancing act, trying to protect themselves while making what may be a life and death split second decision. Criminals carry weapons, therefore our Police need them as well.

I never have advocated that Law Enforcement Officers patrol the mean streets with only a baton, can of mace and maybe a taser (for just the senior officers). I would like to see the good cops weed out the known bad actors within their own ranks. Those guys and gals know who sucks on the job and who doesn't... You know the adage about one bad apple spoiling...(right?)

True. And for the most part this is what they need to do. It's difficult enough for a sniper to aim and hit someones leg or shoulder, so they go for the most obvious target. Mistakes are made and tragically, some innocent people die. Let's not forget, however, that many officers die in the line of duty every day. It is a jungle out there and in some places it's all our war. I don't think saying 'just empty your weapon and let God sort it out' is fair, realistic or even true.

Yet in the Sterling, Castile and Noble shootings (which we've all seen on Youtube videos) no weapons were seen to be pointed at LEO. None were even actually seen - in the hands of those who ended up getting killed! I can't reason with someone who lionizes LEO like you do. They are all heroes to be worshiped. Actually they are just people who chose a line of work for whatever reason(s). They can retire from those jobs and go get another one - just like you or I or the Agriculture Baron of Lush can. Who is making them uphold the law?

Is rah-rah hero worship, one of your core beliefs?

To that all I can say is 'oh well'. He had already taken five lives and wounded, what? Twelve others. He had established himself as armed and very dangerous. If he didn't deserve to be taken out, who did? What if these were school children instead of police officers? Would the LEO's be crucified to this extent?
I respect your beliefs, and love that we can all share them all here, so please don't think I'm attacking you or picking them apart. I'm just responding with my own thoughts. angel7

I suppose that watching our Law Enforcement Officers kill perpetrators with smart bombs (much like our troops have been doing for 15 years abroad - and similar to what Obama has authorized with drone strikes around the world on foreign soil) is just a natural evolution of escalating violence. I should not be concerned at all.

After all, if I'm not doing anything wrong - I shouldn't have to worry about getting blown up. (applying the same logic I've often heard tossed back into my face, when I've protested other civil liberties of ours - getting trampled on).

Oh well - I've been schooled.

Topic 5 dead police in Dallas
Posted 14 Jul 2016 23:00

I'm a bit too lazy this morning to quote/edit/boldface/ excuse me.

If it's not a leap down the road to official authority anarchy, what would you call it? Just the breaks? Something that we all should know exists - that when you have dealings with LEO these days, the chances are always there that you can get not just shot, but killed? This doesn't give me the warm fuzzies about encountering any LEO for any reason - in the street, in my driveway, in the parking lot of the 7/11.

Especially since I've learned that LEO doesn't shoot to incapacitate, but to kill.

I've never been in a gun battle. I've got six weapons which fire projectiles. I've never pointed one at another human being. Had a couple pointed at me over the last thirty years. Never had an LEO pull one out on me.

There's some speculation on my part about what occurred in Minnesota, however it's been stated by the lawyer for the officer who shot that guy's arm up, that they were on the alert and lookout for a bank robber who the attorney stated resembled Castile. Did you see any weapons in that video except for the one shaking in the hands of the officer who was still pointing his weapon inside the vehicle after he'd already unloaded upon one occupant?

We could see inside the vehicle, the officer appeared to not be standing in any position where he could see very much. Again, speculation on my part, but again, that's just what I have seen.

As far as the Dallas shooting is concerned...from the reports I've read...there was a 2-3 hour gap between the last shots and the moment Johnson was destroyed. Negotiations had apparently either failed or served as a ruse in order to get the C4 and the robot in place. (again, speculation on my part).

Yeah, the manner with which Johnson was dispatched concerns me. It doesn't bother you? Just use a pound of C4 & call it a day?

I guess I lead too much of a sheltered life. In Mayberry R.F.D.

To me, I'm hearing that you would prefer anarchy? I'm uncertain why you're so convinced drones are so very militaristic. Weapons change constantly. They evolve but that doesn't make them a military weapon. Sure, this one was probably military grade, but so were muskets at one time. I respectfully have to oppose your POV on this. Just my My 2 cents

I prefer the rule of law. Those rules apply especially to those charged with enforcing them upon the rest of us.

I'd also like to know, if anyone can remember - roughly speaking, when LEO were given permission to summarily kill anyone they thought were immediate threats to them.

Isn't that a leap down the road to anarchy, disguised behind a badge of perceived authority?

Dude in Minnesota gets aired out because in the opinion of the officer(s) on the scene, he resembled a bank robber who the police were alerted to? He goes to reach for his identification card in his wallet, when asked to provide such and gets ka-blammied four times in his arm.

Tis nobody's fault. Mistaken identity, but the officer felt he was under immediate threat, so he just dispatched that threat. With extreme prejudice.

Result, innocent dude died. If he'd lived, his quality of life would have been severely changed. Because he looked similar to a bank-robber on the loose.

LEO has never been instructed to shoot to incapacitate - only to shoot to kill? One shot in the arm would have incapacitated most men. Dylan Noble gets slaughtered with multiple gunshots because officers (who outnumbered him) thought he was an immediate threat. No taser in use here, just empty your weapons in the guy and let god sort it out.

By the time the Dallas shooter was bombed to smithereens, the shooter had not shot anyone in several hours. It would appear that they had him contained and the area cordoned off. However, 12 plus LEO had been shot, five had been confirmed dead - so it stands to reason that someone wanted that motherfucker dead.

A whole pound of C4...? This is a turning point. And not a good look for America. Stormtroopers unite!

What if you could be against police murdering Black people and at the same time be against people murdering police - - and see those as two separate issues? One has little to do with the other except in some abstract psychological way. What if the fact that there is Black on Black crime wasn't used to excuse Police on Black crime? What if you could believe that there is value in all life, and still recognize that as a society, we value Black lives considerably less - as demonstrated by the pattern of frequent profilings and killings of Black men without trial for minor or even imagined infractions - and want to work to change that? What if we could stop getting sidetracked on these bullshit arguments, and actually accomplish social reform in this country?

I think one place you start is to resist the blind hero-worship that we have towards people whose profession involves carrying a gun. We need to be far more critical of our police and military, and hold them accountable when they do terrible, unethical things. Instead, you run into this mindless 'support the troops' or 'blue lives matter' attitude that assumes that because these people have dangerous jobs, protecting the country they are beyond criticism, and deserve our unquestioning respect. The fact is, there are real problems in both the military and the police that need to be solved.

Keep in mind, the police and military exist to serve the country - Not the other way around. We should demand better of them, and we should hold them accountable. Killing or beating defenseless people is unacceptable. Racial profiling is unacceptable. Systematic prejudice against specific communities is unacceptable. Abusing authority is unacceptable. Antagonizing communities through militarization and intimidation is unacceptable.

America, what did you do to be so Black and Blue?

Finally... Someone @ Lush, who goddamn gets it.

I don't believe Ben Franklin would consider killing an unstable military man using brute force (especially one trained by our military) as giving up one of our 'essential liberties'.

What then, differentiates you from the murderer, or from those who used a robot drone to murder him 'on the domestic battlefield'?

That's exactly what Ben Franklin was getting at, and it lies at the very heart of what I stated earlier. Let's just ignore our constitution and give up the rest of our rights, hand them all over to the authorities so they can do anything they want to us.

While it was deplorable that those five were murdered by Michah Xavier Johnson - has anyone given a moment's thought about Mr. Johnson being summarily murdered/dispatched/judged and tried on the spot - by a robot drone/bomb?

Mr Johnson's 14th amendment rights were not just trampled upon, they weren't even thought about. Which means that we as society, by not saying anything about this particular situation - are agreeing to surrender our own 14th amendment rights.

It's also one of the most blatant uses of a militarized drone to kill an American citizen.

So, while it was a terrible situation perpetrated by Micah Johnson - it was an equally terrible decision by whichever agency condoned and ordered Mr Johnson to be dealt with as if he were an ISIS combatant.

No apprehension, no trial, no judgement, no incarceration. Does it not make you want to know who made decided to implement this fucked up 'solution'?

A second - even more graphic video - has surfaced of Alton Sterling's murder. It was filmed by the owner of the market from perhaps 10-12 feet away and graphically shows the murder in progress. If these two law enforcement officers (it's abhorrent to even grant these two murderers that much dignity by describing them as such) manage to get out of this killing without going to prison...with this much video evidence. The Baton Rouge police department will need to be cleaned out with a bulldozer - Israeli style!

I'm not going to post a link to it - you'll find it if you so desire.

Then as Coco posted - this murder occurs at the northern end of the country last night. Graphic video is linked within this story site. Little did those miscreants posing as police officers realize that the girlfriend was livestreaming the aftermath on Facebook.
