      Just another kick to the US economy.
      -------
      U.S. technology companies are in danger of losing more business to foreign competitors if the National Security Agency’s power to spy on customers isn’t curbed, researchers with the New America Foundation said in a report today.

      The report, by the foundation’s Open Technology Institute, called for prohibiting the NSA from collecting data in bulk, while letting companies report more details about what information they give the government. Senate legislation introduced today would fulfill some recommendations by the institute, a Washington-based advocacy group that has been critical of NSA programs.

      Despite the narrative and spin put forth by US mainstream media, not everyone agrees with Netanyahu and the Likud Party.

      "...former U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezisnki said Netanyahu might be man enough to fire rockets, but not man enough to broker a peace deal.

      “I think there are some politicians in Israel who are men enough, and women enough, to do that,” Brzezinski said. “I don’t include Prime Minister Netanyahu in that category.” Brzezisnki argued that a peace deal would largely resolve the current issues in Gaza, but that previous peace efforts had been “scuttled by Mr. Netanyahu. That’s the fact of the matter."

      Every aspect of your lives and property, overseen, inspected, regulated and controlled by the all-powerful Big Brother and Big Mommy government.

      Commentary by Daren Bakst

      Thanks to the federal government, it soon may become far more difficult to use and enjoy private property. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers want to make a water—and land—grab that should scare everyone.

      Under the Clean Water Act, the federal government has jurisdiction over “navigable waters,” which the statute further defines as “the waters of the United States, including the territorial seas.” Property owners often need to get permits if waters covered under the law will be impacted. Therefore, a critical question is what types of “waters” are covered under the CWA. That’s what the EPA and Corps seek to address with a new proposed rule that would define “the waters of the United States.” As expected, the EPA and the Corps are seeking to expand their authority to cover waters never imagined when the Clean Water Act was passed in 1972.

      With the news that Arseniy Yatsenyuk tendered his resignation as Ukraine’s Prime Minister, a once meteoric career has come to a crashing halt. In the U.S., Yatsenyuk gained widespread notoriety when a conversation between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the U.S. Ambassador in Kiev was leaked by, presumably, Russian intelligence. On it, Ms. Nuland expressed her certainty, in positively breathy tones, that “Yats” would make an ideal Prime Minister. As so, once the coup transpired in February, it came to pass.

      The government promptly removed the governors of the pro-Russian eastern provinces and put a number of oligarchs in their stead. The reaction to all of this by the citizens of these provinces, and that of their rather large, influential, and, yes, bare-knuckled, neighbor to the east is now all too plain to see.

      Meanwhile... ISIS is cleansing and robbing in Iraq

      While the US media remains focused on the Ukraine and Gaza, the ethnic and religious cleansing of northern Iraq by ISIS goes mostly unreported. While it is not the duty of the US taxpayer or US military to police the world, perhaps this will serve as a lesson in the unintended consequences of reckless interventionism. Those we arm and support today often end up doing bad things in the future. Better to save the taxpayer's money in the first place, instead of continually paying for an unending chain of unpredictable events. This simple economic rule applies to foreign strife just as well as it does to domestic socialism: when you subsidize something, you get more of it.

      It appears there is a push going on right now to pass a law that will require the Federal government to monitor, regulate, label and criminalize use of Photoshop. The Nanny-statists know no bounds. Every whim needs to be addressed by a bloated, omnipresent Federal government.

      A new music video is being used as the catalyst for a new propaganda campaign. Maybe the make-up companies will lobby to ban videos like this?



      WASHINGTON —

      A new bill gaining momentum in Washington could force advertisers to acknowledge the extensive 'Photoshopping’ of images in ads, a sentiment echoed in a new music video by songwriter Colbie Caillat.

      The video for the song “Try” calls attention to how much models and celebrities are Photoshopped

      All Quiet on the Eastern Front


      Was the Ukrainian Air War being ignored?

      July 18, 2014
      by Brian4Liberty

      (RPF) - The tragedy of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 has once again turned the spotlight on problems in the Ukraine, but the conflict itself is old news. Or perhaps it would have been more accurate to have called the ongoing civil war in Ukraine a non-news event.

      With the terrible loss of a civilian aircraft, the battles being waged in eastern Ukraine can no longer be ignored. News reports now openly talk about Ukrainian government military aircraft being shot down in the past, but the use of air-power against the residents of Eastern Ukraine has been sparsely reported by the western media, if at all.

      Hillary Clinton was the guest on the Daily Show with John Stewart on Tuesday night. They did a fairly long segment. There were a few things that pointed to Hillary continuing down the autocratic path that Obama is treading. If Obama is Lenin, Hillary will be Stalin.

      She is voicing complaints that our Democracy is broken, that Congress won't do the bidding of the Executive Branch, and that the Executive needs to be agile and have flexibility. It appears she would like to have absolute power in the Executive Branch.

      Gridlock and the balance of power are the most integral part of our Republic by design. Any solution that moves more power to the Executive is a recipe for autocracy.

      Note that Stewart also bemoans the "democracy" that comes ...

      (RPF) - Breaking news is coming from the Ukraine that a Malaysian Airliner has been shot down over an active war zone in the Ukraine, while flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Just yesterday, a Ukrainian government jet fighter was shot down. Government aircraft have been flying attack missions over eastern Ukraine for some time now, in what is essentially a civil war.

      This marks another disaster for Malaysia Airlines, whose Flight 370 disappeared under mysterious circumstances in March. Tragically, reports say that 295 passengers are presumed dead.

      One question that surely needs to be asked is why was a commercial passenger jet routed over an active war zone, where air assets have been active? That is just one of many questions that will arise from this tragedy, along with the inevitable political posturing and spin.

      More news to come...

      LOL. Some neoconservative heads exploded over this. "Isolationist is our smear for Rand Paul! Democrats can't use it!"

      U.S. Representative Linda Sanchez: People opposed to illegal immigration are nativists and isolationist

      Another great example of playing the race card and making stuff up as you go.

      Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) says that anyone opposed to the current illegal immigrant invasion taking place on our southern border are “nativist” and “isolationist.”

      “As the United States, as a world leader, we are very good about telling other countries that they must accept refugees from Syria or Ethiopia or Darfur, but when it comes to a humanitarian crisis on our own border — involving children, no less — you hear this nativist, isolationist voices saying that, oh, just ship them all back, send them all back.
