US Drops Criminal Charges Against JPM "London Whale" Traders As It Is "Unable To Extradite Them"
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

So just because two alleged criminal bankers "live outside the US" (not some 3rd world backwater dictatorship but Spain, with which the US has an extradition treaty) and "voluntarily" refuse to come to New York to defend themselves and - well - go to prison, and because the US is completely powerless to compel Spain to deliver these two men, they get to walk?

The U.S. Army’s research arm — the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA — just received $65 million from American taxpayers to develop a way to plug a human brain directly into a computer.

Cameroonian Troops Tortured and Killed Prisoners at Base Used for U.S. Drone Surveillance
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

Troops in the West African nation of Cameroon have tortured prisoners at a remote military base that is also used by U.S. personnel and private contractors for drone surveillance and training missions. As the U.S. military has fortified the Cameroonian site, known as Salak, and supported the elite local troops based there, the outpost has become the scene of illegal imprisonment, brutal torture, and even killings, according to a new investigation by The Intercept and the Goldsmiths, University of London-based research firm Forensic Architecture, based on extensive research by Amnesty International.

Documentation of US Dept of Defense admitting ‘losing’ $6.5 trillion ($65,000 per average US family), with 18 year history of ‘losing’ trillions
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

Catherine Austin Fitts just published documentation of Department of Defense (DOD) official audit reports from 1998 that acknowledge “losing track” of $6.5 trillion, along with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) admission of “losing” over $100 billion. This is euphemistically termed “unaccounted,” and literally means that DOD agrees they received these funds, agrees the funds are gone, and then claims to not have records of where the money went.

Washington's "Good Terrorists, Bad Terrorists" Policy In The Middle East
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

Karl Marx famously said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. The only difference between the Afghan jihad back in the ‘80s that spawned Islamic jihadists like the Taliban and al Qaeda for the first time in history and the Libyan and Syrian civil wars, 2011-onward, is that the Afghan jihad was an overt jihad: back then, the Western political establishments and their mouthpiece, the mainstream media, used to openly brag that the CIA provides all those AK-47s, RPGs and stingers to the Afghan so-called “freedom fighters” to combat the Soviet troops in Afghanistan.

Top European Court To Consider If EU Countries Can Censor The Global Internet
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

Last month we wrote about the tragic and hugely problematic ruling in Canada that said a Canadian court could order global censorship of content it deems to be illegal. As lots of people pointed out, that is going to have dangerous consequences for speech around the world. If you accept that Canada can censor the global internet, what's to stop China, Iran or Russia from claiming the same rights?

Feds push for more asset forfeiture, but states can stop it
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

This week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced renewed federal support for an asset forfeiture program that helps local police do an end-run around state-level restrictions. Taking people’s property without a criminal conviction is robbery. Period. But, on top of it, the approach from Sessions & Co. is to help it happen even when states try to limit it. Again, the AG is showing total disrespect for the 10th Amendment.

Military Continues to Design War Matrix with “Internet of Battlefield Things”
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

The ability of the Army to understand, predict, adapt, and exploit the vast array of internetworked things that will be present of the future battlefield is critical to maintaining and increasing its competitive advantage. The explosive growth of technologies in the commercial sector that exploits the convergence of cloud computing, ubiquitous mobile communications, networks of data-gathering sensors, and artificial intelligence presents an imposing challenge for the Army. These Internet of Things (IoT) technologies will give our enemies ever increasing capabilities that must be countered, but commercial developments do not address the unique challenges that the Army will face in using them.

Idaho Embraces Neofeudalism with Its “Noncompete” Legislation
07/20/2017 09:00 PM

Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one. The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor. “We’re trying to build the tech ecosystem in Boise,” said George Mulhern, chief executive of Cradlepoint, a company here that makes routers and other networking equipment. “And anything that would make somebody not want to move here or start a company here is going to slow down our progress.”
