9,400 to Zero: For 6 Years, Spy Court Denied No Electronic Surveillance Applications

In the last six years on record (2010-2015), the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court did not deny a single application out of the 9,400 the government submitted seeking authority “to conduct electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes” under the terms of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, according to reports filed by the U.S. Justice Department.

So what was different in 2016 that apparently caused the Court to deny the Obama Administration's requests at least twice?

"So now that IrelandDave has come over to the GOP, maybe he can "splain" to us, where he got his former "talking points" and marching orders"


I was hired by a left-wing energy company to radicalize on-line right-wing groups.

But I'm done with that, Gus. And Gus, I want to thank you personally for accepting me into the belly of Conservatism. Your email to me earlier was both touching and profound and your ongoing struggle with homosexuality was equally inspiring and disgusting(gotta get into character).

A lot of people will say the doubledouche is simply "pretending" to be an assh-I mean a Republican. Not true. I am sick to death of Obama and his anti-democratic tactics.


And I laugh-ha ha ha-at my scumbag dem friends who say that Trump has no evidence to back up his wiretapping claims. Of course he does. He has the F.B.I and all he has to do is simply ask FBI Director , James Comey to show how the illegal Obama wiretapping went down.


Boom! Mark Levin in the house.......busting ass and taking names....BOOM!

I heard Carson's speech yesterday. It seemed to me he was taking poetic license to get the audience to imagine the "other immigrants" (slaves) and make the overarching connection, which is that all Americans, no matter how they got here, worked hard and had dreams for their children and grandchildren. He could have said "slaves" from the outset but it would have lessened the rhetorical impact.

Honestly, to my ears that part of the speech was pretty liberal-squishy in tone ("we are all immigrants, people just want to work hard to make life better for their families"), and if it had been delivered by somebody in the NAACP, no one would have blinked.

Yes, particularly how the person doing it admitted that it made her understand that Trump has an appeal which had completely eluded her before doing this project. Was the replicated debate the one where Queen Stumbling Drunk did the shimmy, because that would surely cause projectile vomiting if done by a male?

"Public policy, economics, law, and faith"

If I am aware of these types of programs put on by think tanks and that faith is an integral named component and politicians participate in these types of dialogues, that's pertinent to the why.

http://www.valuesandcapitalism.com/2017-summer-honors-program/ It's really not a matter of personal faith when someone adheres to the idea that their faith instructs them to have government and the taxpayers assume certain obligations.

If Ryan regularly attends programs with fellow Catholics about the intersection of faith, ethics, and public policy, talking about that is not a discussion about his personal faith. It's a recognition he has signed onto a worldview that sees politics as the legitimate forum for faith to take action to transform the here and now world in particular ways.

daddy

(For what it’s worth, “immigrant” is typically defined as “a person who migrates to another country,” with the word “migrate” implying a voluntary action. Standard English usage does not classify the forcible abduction and involuntary transportation over national boundaries of human beings, lacking any choice or intent to live in their new location, as a form of “migration.”)

Yeah, well tell it to The Sabine women, whom as we all know were raped by the Roman's under Romulus who needed wives during the founding years of The Eternal City.

Livy fans will recall that after much bloodshed, with the Roman rapists on one side squared off against the incensed Sabine dads on the other the Sabine women intervened:

[They], from the outrage on whom the war originated, with hair dishevelled and garments rent, the timidity of their sex being overcome by such dreadful scenes, had the courage to throw themselves amid the flying weapons, and making a rush across, to part the incensed armies, and assuage their fury; imploring their fathers on the one side, their husbands on the other, "that as fathers-in-law and sons-in-law they would not contaminate each other with impious blood, nor stain their offspring with parricide, the one their grandchildren, the other their children. If you are dissatisfied with the affinity between you, if with our marriages, turn your resentment against us; we are the cause of war, we of wounds and of bloodshed to our husbands and parents. It were better that we perish than live widowed or fatherless without one or other of you."[4]

"The battle came to an end, and the Sabines agreed to unite in one nation with the Romans. Titus Tatius jointly ruled with Romulus until Tatius's death five years later. The new Sabine residents of Rome settled on the Capitoline Hill, which they had captured in the battle," and their descendants flourished there as the Roman Aristocracy for the next 12 Centuries.

The Highlanders had the distinction, compared to enslaved Africans or reservationed Injuns, of fighting for *LAND AND TITLE.*


A noble people for sure.

But their lot in life was different in kind.

Blacks were chattel property.


We injuns, well, we were subjected to the mathematical equations of federal government eradication through blood quantum measurement, destruction of the languages, euthanasia, sterilization, armed slaughter of women and children.... and zero rights to land ownership.


Most of us aren't even considered "real" Indians any more despite contemporary society's abject failure comprehending what makes a Skin a Skin. That's the mother of all psy-op on a child. "Cut his hair, hid his feathers, and told him he was Latin. Til he came down the street chantin' like a cannibal in Manhattan."


The bandied about term "immigrant" is more of the false narrative to make us "all the same." We never have been since the beginning of time and we never shall be.

And there aint nothin' wrong with that.

(damn blog ate my comment; arrrggghhh -- this lesser creation will have to do)

There isn't a damn thing wrong with what Dr. Carson said, IMHO.

KK, I agree with you. However, we've invested *so* much into the slave narrative (and making up for it) that it has served to desensitize many to the similarities -- and there are many -- between slavery and inservitude, chattel and serf.

As a result, we have a modern nation full of African Americans (and others) who embrace a word choice such as immigrant from a weird psychological place previously unknown in a 20th century America seeking to assimilate the many into one.

So, here we are now in 21st century America discussing a choice of word that would have properly earned JFK praise but foolishly earns Carson an attempted rebuke.

This navel-gazing craziness has to stop. That's going to require White Americans to resolutely (albeit *respectfully*) remind Americans "of color" of those similarities between slavery and inservitude, and ones status as chattel or serf.

Time for the decades-long apology tour over slavery to end. And, believe it or not, that will be of MOST benefit to African Americans. That's apparently counter-intuitive to many, but that's the truth.

BeenThereDoneThat

My ancestors on my paternal side were Huguenots, who arrived in New York/New Jersey, via Holland in the 1600's. My maternal ancestors were from Italy & England/Scotland/Ireland. They settled in Virginia, also in the late 1600's. And during the 1700-1800's as they moved further inland both sides of my ancestry were slave-owners, and fought for both sides of the Civil War! I was very surprised to learn this when I began my genealogy searches 15 years ago, but township, county & military records are usually reliable.

Not to mention the forced immigration of some truly unlucky to Norfolk Island, daddy.

Well, techically in a mathematical sense not semantic, we are all immigrants of descendency, even the Native Americans, who are only considered that because they were here first. Hell the Cro-mangan man was an evolved immigrant when you think about it.

RG - TypePest just ate my rousing "Huzzah" and "Amen" to your 6:36. Here the Cliffs Notes

I agree about Dr. Carson's statements. He unfortunately has the *wrong* political party on his voter's registration.

JFK *did* indeed utter the same sentiment that those who came here from elsewhere are immigrants. No praise was withheld for this
belief.

Yours was a very important reminder to all of us .

A local WI view of Ryan's ACA Bill. Note the guy from "One Wisconsin Now" claiming the law cuts off healthcare for some, or tosses people off the cliff to go with their usual attack vs Ryan. The bill could double down on ACA and that Ross idiot would say the same thing. I see a slightly rearranged combination of subsidy (here in drag as a tax credit), regulation (must issue for pre existing conditions, etc), and tax that in any combination will lead to ruin. This is a repair like those Soc Sec "repairs" they do every couple decades. Fixes nothing, costs more, and keeps govt fingers in the mix (and those campaign donations plus lobbying jobs going).

NC teen accused of beheading his mother is in country illegally and wanted by ICE
https://t.co/HwwPMI8pkp

Mark Price of the Charlotte Observer notes that ICE has filed a detainer against Funes-Machado, who is originally from Honduras and in the United States illegally. Should he be freed on bond, ICE would then take custody.

Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado was killed around noon Monday in rural North Carolina. Reports say that “the first deputy on the scene saw the teen walking out of the house, holding the head in one hand and what appeared to be a butcher knife in the other.” Two young girls around age 2 or 3 were home when the beheading took place.

For an Antiracist and Anti-imperialist Feminism

Against the open white supremacists in the current government and the far right and anti-Semites they have given confidence to, we stand for an uncompromising anti-racist and anti-colonial feminism. This means that movements such as Black Lives Matter, the struggle against police brutality and mass incarceration, the demand for open borders and for immigrant rights and for the decolonization of Palestine are for us the beating heart of this new feminist movement. We want to dismantle all walls, from prison walls to border walls, from Mexico to Palestine.

From narciso's 8:20

Since 2007, German Military Intelligence has investigated more than 300 active duty soldiers on suspicions of having Islamist links. So far, nearly 30 former Bundeswehr soldiers are known to be fighting within the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Currently, over 60 active duty soldiers were under investigation for having Jihadi connection. In April 2014, German newspaper Handelsblatt reported that until recently German army did not carry out backgrounds checks on soldiers handling sensitive combat equipment. The screening was only limited to soldiers accessing classified material.

They are thinking of opening up the German military to foreigners. What could go wrong?

Attention! Pertinent point on the 3 phases and why they are structured as such!!! This from a poster on CTH:

A lot of the changes are going to be in phase 2 when Tom Price can change the rules (such as making low cost “catastrophic” policies legal again.) I think they almost HAVE to keep the construct in place for now because it’s the ACA construct that gives so much power to the HHS Secretary.

Now that I have seen this, I remember that there was a lot of "the Secretary shall determine" stuff in the original bill, which is why Sebelius got dubbed Cruella deVille.
