Glenn Greenwald's latest.


"The report on which I worked for the Brazilian television program Fantastico, regarding the NSA's targeting of the oil company Petrobras, received attention in Latin America and elsewhere primarily because it gave the lie to the repeated claim of US officials that its electronic surveillance is devoted only to national security and counter-terrorism and not to industrial and commercial espionage. But several of the documents we published detail some rather extreme NSA and GCHQ tactics of deception, including taking on the identity of Google to launch "man in the middle attacks" on unsuspecting internet users.

A coalition called "Stop Watching Us" has been formed by privacy and civil liberties groups from across the political spectrum, including the ACLU, EFF, Free Press, Freedom Works, Occupy Wall Street, Demand Progress and others. It has the support of a wide swath individuals such as internet pioneer Tim Berners-Lee, Daniel Ellsberg, Gabriella Coleman, Xeni Jardin, the actor Wil Wheaton, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, and Anil Dash.

On October 26, the 12th anniversary of the enactment of the Patriot Act, they will hold an anti-surveillance rally in Washington DC. Anyone able is encouraged to attend."
the Petrobras thing is huge.. it could lead to a BRICS-centric internet.

They are using this stuff for EVERYTHING.

not just "national security"
Stunning LIBOR admissions.


"Remember when everyone decried wholesale Libor manipulation as a crazy conspiracy theory (Zero Hedge: January 2009: "This Makes No Sense: LIBOR By Bank" - after all, it was impossible for so many people to keep their mouth shut or whatever the generic justification is for disproving such "conspiracy theories"? Why, none other than ICAP chief Michael Spencer says they all though Libor was "unmanipulable." As it turns out, not only is Libor "manipulable", and a vast rate-rigging "conspiracy theory" is quite possible when everyone's interests are aligned, but it also is quite profitable, as ICAP just found out to its public humiliation.

Two quotes stand out from the just released, and quite humiliating, public filing:

•Derivatives Broker 1: Make 6m[onth] go lower! They r going up. [Senior yen trader] will buy you a ferrari next yr if you move 3m up and no change 6m (February 29, 2008, via text message to personal mobile phone)
•Yen Desk Head: Lord Baliff, I would suggest a lunch over golden week. Monday or Tuesday if you are around. *** As for kick backs etc we can discuss that at lunch and I will speak to [Senior Yen Trader] about it next time he comes up for a chat."
^ LOL@ the denier excuses.

"lots of people can't keep a secret"

LMFAO @ that.

you don't need to keep it a secret.. you just need to control the media enough so that it is not covered above a certain threshold.

5 companies own 95% of the media.. you would not need to micro-manage.

the employees KNOW THEMSELVES INTUITIVELY what they can cover or not cover.

capabilities not that good it seems.
Did you guys ever watch Buck Rogers?

Back then, but in the future, people checked Buck's authenticity by him knowing who 'The Juice' was.

A football hero from back in the past that Buck told them about.

How terribly wrong that 'safe bet' turned out.

Linda Gray was my wet dream girl before I knew how to take care of business myself.

Just saying.
Whistleblower Edward Snowden has made the shortlist of finalists for this year’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. The other nominees include Pakistani women’s rights activist Malala Yousafzai, and three Belarusian dissidents.

Quote:Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson loses libel suit

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has lost a defamation lawsuit against the National Jewish Democratic Council.

Adelson asked for $60 million in damages, arguing the council libeled him by saying his political contributions were sullied by links to prostitution.

On Monday, a federal judge in Manhattan found that the council's speech was protected. Adelson, whom Forbes ranks as the ninth-richest American
is chief executive officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. and a major Republican donor.

The lawsuit accused the council of "assassinating" Adelson's character by suggesting he personally approved of prostitution in resorts owned by Sands China Limited, a Las Vegas Sands subsidiary.

In the months before the 2012 presidential election, the council posted an article urging Republican candidates to refuse Adelson's money, saying his donations were "tainted" and pointed to claims that the CEO had "personally approved" a prostitution strategy for his casinos in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau.

A fired former executive suing Sands for wrongful termination made allegations in a court filing that Adelson knew about prostitution at his casinos. That case is ongoing. Adelson denies wrongdoing.

The council argued its reports referencing mainstream press accounts were "wholly appropriate."

In his decision, U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken wrote that the larger context of the council's article and difficulty of proving or disproving their claim led him to conclude that "statements that Adelson's money is 'dirty' or 'tainted' constitute constitutionally protected opinion." He also ordered Adelson to pay the council's legal fees.

"It was a great day for the First Amendment," said Marc Stanley, chairman of the council. "I think it sends a message that no matter much money you have, you can't bully people into suppressing free speech."

L. Lin Wood, a lawyer for Adelson, said the decision denied his client the "basic right of trial by jury."

"The statement by the National Jewish Democratic Council at issue in this case remains a boldfaced lie," he said in a statement.

Adelson's legal team is expected to appeal the ruling.

"When you have unlimited money, you can do whatever you want to do," Stanley said.

A man tried to rob a bank after paying $500 to a wizard to make him invisible

[Image: wizard-bank-robber.jpg]

Never trust strangers. That is something most of us were taught by our parents or guardians at an early stage of our life, especially if the stranger says he is a sorcerer who can turn you invisible whilst you rob a bank!

Unfortunately, for one man in Iran, he made the mistake of trusting a fake sorcerer who convinced him that he was invisible and could rob a bank safely. The man explained to the court that he had paid five million rials (just under £290) to a wizard imposter, who in return gave him a set of spells to tie to his arm. The fake sorcerer explained to him that the spells would make him invisible, and that he could then rob banks all he wanted.

^ looks like a skater white dude.

perhaps our SHAH truly is WHITE!
