The government has been busy the last few months: first it was more Benghazi, then the IRS and now the NSA. What's next?
After whistleblower Edward Snowden came forward to announce the depths of the National Security Agency's spying on Americans through every major Internet platform available, companies like Facebook and Google have been scrambling to release data on how many users' accounts were officially tapped into by the government.
When Facebook shared their numbers, they gave an estimate of 18,000 to 19,000 accounts that were involved in the last six months alone. Facebook was not allowed to give any further specifics beyond that estimate, but the company's lawyer Ted Ullyot said Facebook wanted to reassure everyone that only "a tiny fraction of one percent" of its over a billion users were affected by the government's data requests.
Microsoft also revealed that it received requests on 31,000 accounts in the last half of 2012 alone. Google is still working out its deal with the government on what the government will allow Google to tell us.
So there you go. No big deal, right? It was only like 50,000 people who officially had their privacy violated (and the numbers are just getting bigger by the day). No word yet on how many people's emails, texts, videos, pictures, voice chats and more was culled directly from servers who didn't even do anything wrong accept to go online.
The Independent reported:
"Google, Facebook and Microsoft have contradicted reports about 'direct access' to their servers, and it now appears that at least some of the companies allowed neither government-controlled equipment on their property nor direct searches without company employees vetting each inquiry." [emphasis added]
Doesn't that make you feel so much better about PRISM slides showing the government has been gaining direct access to the servers of every major Internet company since 2007?

G.U.N.N. Live from 8-10pm UK time , 3-5est USA
On today's LIVE Sunday, June 16 worldwide broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down how modern slavery is being re-instituted by passing laws that criminalize normal behavior -- like wearing an NRA t-shirt or owning a pipe. Alex also lays siege to the NSA's Orwellian Panopticon surveillance grid as new revelations surface from a secret Congressional briefing. Alex continues with unrelenting force to lay out the scandals obliterating Obama's second term with, as the surveillance and police states pull out all the stops to suppress opposition. We'll also look at the ramp up to an invasion of Syria by arming and funding Al Qaeda affiliated rebel forces there, and the Turkish protests going into their third week as the world hurdles towards more and more intensified tyranny.
In this video Jason Liosatos talks about the arming of Syrian rebels and Al Qaeda by US and the Western governments, which is a murder tool, and aiding and abetting, to oust President Assad for them, without a single US soldier killed. I also talk about Syria as the same scenario as Iraq and Libya, a literal deja vu, with the accusations of chemical weapons of mass destruction as the excuse to intervene, which is incredible as US and the West use depleted uranium nuclear weapons in most of their horrendous bombing campaigns, which left Iraq with generations of birth defects and cancers for millenia to come. I reflect on the insanity and audacity of the West ousting Assad, by talking about how we would feel if Assad ousted Obama or Cameron by funding the US and UK's uprising citizens if they rebelled against their governments.
We have been conditioned to accept that it is fine for the US and West to bomb and murder its way through the Middle East, and we have been made to believe that the Middle East is the terrorist threat when in truth it is the US and Western governments that are the greatest terror threat to humanity, and that it is their murder of millions of people in the Middle East which creates retaliation and resentment.

Financial Industry Regulation: Assisting the Banking and Financial Markets - Elizabeth Warren (2009)
Critics such as economist Paul Krugman and U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner have argued that the regulatory framework did not keep pace with financial innovation, such as the increasing importance of the shadow banking system, derivatives and off-balance sheet financing. A recent OECD study suggest that bank regulation based on the Basel accords encourage unconventional business practices and contributed to or even reinforced the financial crisis. In other cases, laws were changed or enforcement weakened in parts of the financial system. Key examples include:
Jimmy Carter's Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980 (DIDMCA) phased out a number of restrictions on banks' financial practices, broadened their lending powers, allowed credit unions and savings and loans to offer checkable deposits, and raised the deposit insurance limit from $40,000 to $100,000 (thereby potentially lessening depositor scrutiny of lenders' risk management policies.)
In October 1982, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Garn--St. Germain Depository Institutions Act, which provided for adjustable-rate mortgage loans, began the process of banking deregulation, and contributed to the savings and loan crisis of the late 1980s/early 1990s.
In November 1999, U.S. President Bill Clinton signed into law the Gramm--Leach--Bliley Act, which repealed part of the Glass--Steagall Act of 1933. This repeal has been criticized for reducing the separation between commercial banks (which traditionally had fiscally conservative policies) and investment banks (which had a more risk-taking culture). However, the vast majority of failures were at institutions that were created by Glass-Steagall.
In 2004, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission relaxed the net capital rule, which enabled investment banks to substantially increase the level of debt they were taking on, fueling the growth in mortgage-backed securities supporting subprime mortgages. The SEC has conceded that self-regulation of investment banks contributed to the crisis.
Financial institutions in the shadow banking system are not subject to the same regulation as depository banks, allowing them to assume additional debt obligations relative to their financial cushion or capital base. This was the case despite the Long-Term Capital Management debacle in 1998, where a highly leveraged shadow institution failed with systemic implications.
Regulators and accounting standard-setters allowed depository banks such as Citigroup to move significant amounts of assets and liabilities off-balance sheet into complex legal entities called structured investment vehicles, masking the weakness of the capital base of the firm or degree of leverage or risk taken. One news agency estimated that the top four U.S. banks will have to return between $500 billion and $1 trillion to their balance sheets during 2009. This increased uncertainty during the crisis regarding the financial position of the major banks. Off-balance sheet entities were also used by Enron as part of the scandal that brought down that company in 2001.
As early as 1997, Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan fought to keep the derivatives market unregulated. With the advice of the President's Working Group on Financial Markets, the U.S. Congress and President allowed the self-regulation of the over-the-counter derivatives market when they enacted the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000. Derivatives such as credit default swaps (CDS) can be used to hedge or speculate against particular credit risks. The volume of CDS outstanding increased 100-fold from 1998 to 2008, with estimates of the debt covered by CDS contracts, as of November 2008, ranging from US$33 to $47 trillion. Total over-the-counter (OTC) derivative notional value rose to $683 trillion by June 2008. Warren Buffett famously referred to derivatives as "financial weapons of mass destruction" in early 2003.
Imagine one day, you turn on the news and see that 50 states' governors have met in Las Vegas and after they were done playing with the hookers, they got down to business and put their grievances with the federal government on the table, deciding that it would be best, based on all the complaints, to just drop out of the federal system, effectively firing the federal government, wiping out all laws and executive orders and doing away with Congress! That's what this video is all about!
Over the ages, great civilizations and mighty empires have come and gone in a remarkably similar pattern. From Sumer to Egypt, from Greece to Rome, all have crashed from triumph to tragedy. The British built the largest empire in history, only to see it disintegrate in the aftermath of war. Since then, the USA has assumed the mantle of the World's dominant power, winning a war of attrition against the former Soviet Union whilst waging real and increasingly bloody wars for resources across the globe.
But are the days of the American Empire numbered? Has it fallen prey to corruption, greed, hubris and arrogance like so many before it? Is a new power waiting in the wings to take its place, or does the decline of US hegemony mark the beginning of the end of industrial civilization as we know it? If so, what -- if anything -- can we do about it?

Former French Foreign Minister: The War against Syria was Planned Two years before "The Arab Spring"
In an interview with the French TV station LCP, former French minister for Foreign Affairs Roland Dumas said:
'' I'm going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria.
This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate.
Naturally, I refused, I said I'm French, that doesn't interest me.''
Dumas went on give the audience a quick lesson on the real reason for the war that has now claimed the lives of tens of thousands of people.
''This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned... in the region it is important to know that this Syrian regime has a very anti-Israeli stance.
Consequently, everything that moves in the region- and I have this from the former Israeli prime minister who told me 'we'll try to get on with our neighbours but those who don't agree with us will be destroyed.
It's a type of politics, a view of history, why not after all. But one should know about it.''
Dumas is a retired French foreign minister who is obliged to use discretion when revealing secrets which could affect French foreign policy. That is why he made the statement 'I am French, that doesn't interest me'. He could not reveal France's role in the British plan as he would be exposing himself to prosecution for revealing state secrets.
There have been many disinformation agents in the British and French press, many of them well known 'leftist' war correspondents and commentators, who have tried to pretend that Israel secretly supports Assad. Those who make such arguments are either stupid, ignorant or deliberate disinformation agents of NATO and Israel.
On this edition of DTRH Popeye welcomes radio host and filmmaker Steve Stars back to the broadcast to cover the Boston Marathon bombing that took place earlier in the day. They cover the MSM's total lack of any credible reporting and their blatant appeal to emotion, and fear. They cover the things they see as red flags in this whole event. As well as going over who really would be the only people to benefit from this event taking place to begin with.
Broadcasting live from the studios of KLBJ in Austin, Texas, George was joined by filmmaker and activist Alex Jones, who discussed his film Endgame and the Elite's master plan to dominate and oppress humanity.
Jones warned listeners about a 'control-grid' that is being put in place by the Elite to monitor and store information about the masses. The infrastructure of the system includes RFID chips, GPS-enabled cell phones, national ID cards, and DNA databases, he explained. Jones pointed out that Tivo and Google currently monitor television and internet viewing habits, and have compiled detailed psychological profiles of the people who utilize their services.
Jones commented on the subprime mortgage crisis, which he believes was engineered by the Bilderbergs. He said the group planned to "pop the subprime mortgage bubble" in order to unravel the U.S. economy and bring down global financial markets. He also spoke about the North American Union, the Elite's plan to reduce the world's population to 500 million, as well as the cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil. Jones referred to a Daily Mail article about two girls who died following their Gardasil vaccination.
Nobel Economics Laureate Edward Prescott explains what he thinks has gone so wrong in the region, and what needs to be done to put it right.
The Sad Truth is if you want to change our form of government from a Constitutional Republic Governed by the Rule of Law to the European Socialism Model, continue down the road of Obama. Right now the European Socialist Nations of; France, Greece, Italy, & Spain are on the verge of collapse. Yet Obama still wants to redirect the USA toward European Socialism & Keynesian Economics, expecting a different outcome. The only thing Socialists end up sharing in is their own misery as Oligarchs profit.

Total Hoax! The lady passed all the ambulances just to get to the fake Hoax, Hollywood production along with fake blood and amputee actors and prosthetic's. I've seen better acting on the wrestling..Hollywood and the media have a lot in common.
I just had a thought. What if a lot of these crisis actors are foreign nationals from say Israel or someplace else. This bitch and the other criminals get on a plane and they are up and out of the the country. My insight on where they could come from.Personally, I want all of these people ARRESTED and brought up on charges of massive criminal conspiracy. Some of us are not indifferent in the least.
France says it is certain that the nerve agent sarin has been used in Syria on several occasions following tests it has carried out on samples recovered from the country. "These tests show the presence of sarin in various samples in our possession," Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that the test results had been handed to the United Nations.Earlier this month The Obama administration said U.S. intelligence agencies believe it is likely the Syrian government has used chemical weapons on a small scale against rebel forces but indicated conclusive proof is needed before the president will take action.
