Twitter Admits to Social Engineering Their Users

Web 2.0, which became the social media sites of today, has not been good for free political speech. The people in charge of these sites have grossly abused their power.

Back in the 2000s, I distinctly remember hearing this term “web 2.0“that was thrown around. It was a term used to describe a new type of website that allowed people to create accounts and interact with others in a more functional and usable way. I remember being highly skeptical of this idea. Mainly because it sounded like a way to herd large numbers of people onto centralized platforms that could be heavily policed and moderated at a later date.

These web 2.0 sites were the genesis of what has now become the social media infrastructure of today. The most prominent of which are Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Obviously, there are other social media sites, but these three have in essence become the main public square of the modern era.

These three social media platforms is where most public discourse takes place now.

Unfortunately, my early skepticism of this web 2.0 concept was proven correct. A few years ago, I was banned from Twitter after only being active on the site for three weeks. They threw me off because I expressed my skepticism of the claim that six million Chinese Communists were gassed with re-purposed diesel powered Soviet submarine engines to British MP Stella Creasy. To this day I’m still perplexed as to why Ms. Creasy and Twitter had a problem with this very sound and reasoned position.

As far as free political speech goes, things are very bad on all these sites. And based on what we are hearing from Twitter’s management, it is clear that things are only going to get worse before they get better.

Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey did a series of interviews with the media confirming this. During an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, he discussed how they had temporarily suspended Infowars host Alex Jones for seven days. He specifically referred to the suspension as a “timeout” like we’re all kids in preschool or something.

But it’s what he said afterwords that was the most disturbing. He admitted that they use this “timeout” tool to modify people’s behavior. So effectively, they are using social engineering techniques on their users who don’t comply with the overall Twitter collective.

In a separate interview, he discusses how they’re trying to steer people towards having “healthier” behaviors and “healthier” conversations.

The Hill:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey isn’t sure if the timeout given to Alex Jones will convince the right-wing conspiracy theorist to “reconsider” his social media behavior.

But Dorsey, in an interview with The Hill the morning after his company handed down a seven-day suspension to Jones, says its enforcement actions are intended to promote better behavior from its users.

“We’re always trying to cultivate more of a learning mindset and help guide people back towards healthier behaviors and healthier public conversation,” the 41-year-old co-founder of Twitter said.

And who defines what “healthy” behavior is and what isn’t? The Twitter thought police, apparently. Dorsey has literally declared his company to be the arbiter of all that is good and holy.

Pictured above is Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey. Does anybody honestly think that this man should have the unilateral power to grant or deny access to the modern day public square? I sure as hell don’t!

These are not the proper functions of anyone who is managing a legitimate social media platform. A proper social media site is one that allows all people to freely exchange ideas with one another. The only time it would be appropriate for administrators to step in would be if someone used the platform to facilitate a crime. Uploading child pornography and making specific death threats to a politician are things that come to mind. Outside of that, people who are offended by other users can simply block them.

Instead of taking this common sense position, Twitter has decided to police users based on an arbitrary set of standards that nobody understands. It has created a situation where online mobs are demanding people be banned simply for having differing political views. When Twitter’s management chose to abandon their neutrality, they were effectively approving of all content visible on the site. They become a publisher instead of a platform and are now subject to the whims of mobs.

Needless to say, this is a completely unsustainable model. It’s why the government has to step in and implement some type of regulation to protect free political speech on these platforms.

Democrat Senator Mark Warner has proposed a complete shut down of free speech on social media.

The Democrats are planning the exact opposite this. They’ve already proposed implementing regulations on social media sites that will further empower them to ban anyone they politically disagree with. This will be done under the guise of labeling their political opponents as Russian agents promoting fake news.

Think I joke?

Read the list of proposals from Democrat Senator Mark Warner. It’s a plan to have the government come in and ensure that everything is shut down and stays shut down.

The best possible thing we can do at this point is encourage an acceleration of the ban hammer on any remaining big name right-wing personalities and groups. This will help give an increasing amount of legitimacy to any future government intervention.

I mean let’s face it: the only people left on these platforms are those who never had the courage to call out the Chinese Communists. So why should we care if any of them get banned or not? It’s not like they’re serving a real useful purpose any way.

“Someone Has to Say It: The Hidden History of How America Was Lost” A Review

Did He Just Say That?

Someone Has to Say It: The Hidden History of How America Was Lost

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Book Written By Tom Kawczynski

Do you ever wonder what happened to America? Do you wonder how we went from a stable, prosperous land in the 1950s — a land whose cities were the jewels of the world with neighborhoods where no one locked their doors and an education system that was second-to-none — to a country where it isn’t safe to walk the streets at night, and where huge numbers of people graduate high school unable to read, but fully convinced that White heterosexual men (particularly those of the working class) are StupidEvilRacistSexistNazisWhoWannaKillSixMillionJews? Do you wonder where strident feminism came from? How about the “trans-gender” agenda? Do you wonder who’s behind the rise of militant black racism or open borders? Or why radical red guard-style communists, masquerading as “anti-fascists”, are free to roam our streets attacking any White person, they deem “racist”, or “sexist”, or “homophobic”, etc., with relative impunity? In short, have you wondered how we lost America?

In January of this year, Tom Kawczynski found himself at the epicenter of a manufactured national media firestorm designed to force him out of his position as the town manager of Jackman, a small community in rural northern Maine, for daring to ask these questions. Jackman’s loss was America’s gain. His forced resignation gave him the time to answer these questions and more.

In Someone Has to Say It: The Hidden History of How America Was Lost, Kawczynski weaves a tangle of apparently disparate threads into a sweeping historical account of the consolidation of globalist power that defines the history of the last century in the West; it tells the story of how we’ve become who we are. His slim (238-page), compelling “popular history” offers an expansive vision enhanced by his fluid style and sustained with remarkable clarity. It contains many insights, and touches upon every major issue of our time — from economics to the politics of identity, from the failure of our school system to the shadowy power of the “Deep State.” “This book is about the destruction of beliefs we once held”, Kawczynski writes, “and ideas that were important to us.” The following is a short list of just some of the topics about which our beliefs and ideas have been destroyed:

  • race
  • the battle of the sexes
  • the queer agenda
  • immigration
  • communism
  • socialism
  • World War II
  • hyper-taxation combined with federal mandates to local communities
  • the military-industrial complex
  • the security/police state
  • the controlled media
  • the myth of perpetual growth
  • invade the world/invite the world
  • the drug epidemic
  • the Kennedy assassination
  • respectable conservatives
  • technology
  • and much, much more

Writing from the perspective of a historian with a deep reserve of contextual understanding, Kawczynski begins with the story of how he was forced to resign, and uses that as a launching-pad for the bigger story of how America got to be the way it is. His prologue also provides the reader with some background on Kawczynski and exposes his fundamental views — including his biases. For instance:

My parents taught me to be honest, and to the very best of my ability, and not without a degree of fear for consequences that will accrue, I’ve written this understanding. My hope is that it will serve as a beacon for others in their own search and help those out there to understand both my own efforts and those of many others who are branded as evil and wicked by the lying media.

While acknowledging that “History is messy because there are many contradictory actors and agendas all at work” and stating that he’s “not going to try to offer . . . a narrative that removes that ambiguity,” Kawczynski argues against the “accidental” view of history that most of us accept (because it is presented as fact by establishment historians and promulgated by the mass media) and presents a strong case for what he calls the “conspiratorial” view.

The accidental view would have us believe that the history of the last hundred years is “a series of coincidences in the search for greater liberty, the proverbial freedom from previous strictures and the happenstance outcome of individual battles pushing the nation in the direction of greater liberalization” and that people don’t organize into groups to gain power and then lie about why they are organizing. Kawczynski suggests that what has happened to America “is no accident, but rather the result of a series of actions spanning the last hundred plus years that saw the deliberate deconstruction of every source of authority and tradition in American life.” However, many are beginning to “see what was done as the concentrated effort of a few actors — whether they be individual or within certain groups — trying to reshape society to amass greater power or advantage for their cause.”

He then goes on to demonstrate the comprehensiveness of Jewish involvement in everything antithetical to the interests of White America and suggests “we should ask why we keep finding them far more than any natural distribution whenever efforts are made to undo our society.” He recounts this Jewish involvement in dozens of issues, great and small, recognizing, for instance, that the Rosenbergs (who sold atomic secrets to the Soviets) were Jews. He notes that “It would have been interesting to hear Oswald’s defense, but he was murdered just two days later by ((((((((((((((((((Jack Ruby)))))))))))))))))), a man born Jacob ((((((((((((((((((Rubenstein)))))))))))))))))) in Chicago and who ran a night club in Texas”; and he comments on “how heavily involved [Jews] were with the creation of the Soviet Union,” not to mention international communism, in general.

He goes far beyond merely blaming Jews, however, and makes the case that the beliefs and actions of Whites are a big part of the problem by presenting a panoply of players — from feminist activists to corporatist stooges — and showing how, under the influence of Jewish hegemony, their collaboration enables the destruction of Western nations.

When discussing Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s blockade on Japan’s fuel supply which forced Japan’s hand in attacking Pearl Harbor, he informs us that,

it’s interesting the most valuable assets of the American fleet, the aircraft carriers were all safely away from Oahu. For all the code breaking prowess of the United States, and their own war planning conducted by General Mitchell, they had thought Japan might one day try a first strike attack, but security was strangely lax. Rumors persist to this day the British knew the attack was coming, but the prize of seeing the sleeping giant that was American mobilization brought into the war [was motivation enough].

He examines the creeping power of the state and illustrates how each leftist movement (multiculturalism, corporatism, ((((((((((((((((((Marxism)))))))))))))))))), feminism, queerism, etc.) helps to advance it by convincing Whites, particularly heterosexual White men of the working/middle class, to be ever more “atomized” individuals, while simultaneously weaponizing everyone else by not only allowing, but encouraging, them to join with their respective identity collective to act as agents for “change”. These change agents, in turn, act to destroy White nations in an effort to bring about global governance which he calls “globalism 2.0.” The logic behind this is to “force everyone together into one group by whatever means necessary, and watch the differences resolve themselves.”

A major platform of this new globalism is the destruction of local communities, both via demographic change and through economic ruin — a phenomenon Kawcyznski is intimately acquainted with because of his role as town manager. According to Kawczynski, the federal government destroys “the ability of the local community to sustain itself. Sucking all the oxygen out of the room with the massive taxes they collect at the federal level and the administrative mandates which every town, city, and state struggles to comply with.” Hyper-taxation at the federal level steals funds from local governments which the feds then give back, but with restrictions. These restrictions come in the form of mandates which allow the federal government to circumvent Constitutional limitations on federal power. For instance, the Constitution makes it clear that education is a local concern and the federal government has no say. But by taking our taxes away from us and then giving them back, they can demand that local communities comply with federal rules on education.

In his chapter on “The War of the Sexes”, Kawczynski briefly touches upon many of the profound problems of feminism, including the negative economic impact of feminism, which is only rarely discussed. He points out that “where the old system had one person, almost always the man working to make enough money to sustain his wife and family, this new system would have two parents working, each making less as the labor supply swelled with wages dropping accordingly.” Flooding the labor-pool with women reduced wages, making it difficult for most men to earn enough money to support a family, this, combined with racial-flooding, has led to a situation in which — after accounting for inflation — the average man in America now makes less than 60% of what he made in 1971.

Someone Has to Say It captures the dual nature of the essential struggle of White Nationalism: to raise awareness of Jewish power and influence, while simultaneously aiding Whites in recovering a healthy identity which enables them to resist that power and influence. This, in turn, will enable us to reclaim the heritage that rightly belongs to us. Kawczynski is right when he says, “what was done to our country was the work of generations of effort and there will be no quick or easy fix. It will take much pain, effort, and exertion to rediscover what was lost and to build new solutions to our current problems.”

It’s certain true that the fix will not be quick or easy, but it is remarkably simple: just eliminate incentives and subsidies for anti-White groups and re-enable White men to express themselves in a manner that is healthy and natural. In practice this means eliminating all of the various forms of welfare for anti-Whites, including “Affirmative Action,” and allowing White men to think, speak, and behave in ways that are natural for them.

Although long-time readers of The Occidental Observer and other veterans of our struggle will already be familiar with much of the material in the book, there are several informative chapters on topics generally considered side-issues that are nevertheless important to our movement. This reviewer particularly liked Chapter 21 on the Internet, Chapter 23 on climate change, and Chapter 24 on junk food. Further, because of it’s gentle approach to the Jewish Question, it is an excellent introduction for people less informed;  Kawczynski’s approach is unique in that it is suitable as a primer for newbies from both ends of the political spectrum. It explains effectively to those concerned with gun rights and the Muslim Invasion why these things are happening while at the same time demonstrating to “progressives” why they are part of the elitist globalization problem — not the solution. Someone Has to Say It makes an excellent gift for friends and family members who could benefit from a gentle introduction to our concerns, as well as a great donation for a local library.

Now or Never

Strike while the iron is hot.

There can be no better advertisement against Democrats, neoconservatives, and never-Trumpers than their display after the Helsinki summit. Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.

The Democrats’ destruction began long before Trump. They are wholly associated with government, their answer to all problems and the source of their identity and power. Where they once had a healthy hostility towards the military and the intelligence agencies, they are now among their stoutest defenders. Their ideology, such as it is, is simply more: more government, taxes, laws, regulations, revenues, power, surveillance, wars, and programs, in short, more blob.

Democrats and government is not just a marriage of convenience. They believe, to the core of their being, in its power with a fervor and conviction that surpasses most religious faith. Denied control of the government, they are fish on the bank, deprived of their element, flopping helplessly. The cardinal sin of whatever opposition they face is never rooted in ideology, it’s rather that the opposition has the temerity to seek control of their government.

Somewhere along the line Democrats quit caring, or even asking, whether government worked. The first Mayor Richard Daley may have been a distasteful autocrat, but Chicago during his reign called itself the city that worked. Democrats have had lengthy tenures over cities that manifestly don’t work—Detroit, Baltimore, Washington, Cleveland, New Orleans, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and now Chicago—in some cases they’re crumbling. Governance has become an exercise in patronage, payola, and making excuses, the effectiveness of city-provided services not even on the list of concerns.

Obamacare has been the apotheosis of Democrat-sponsored incompetence. It’s the latest in a long string of government failures, epitomized by the huge stack of debt and unfunded promises, and disastrous military interventions. Government über alles has become an albatross for its believers, particularly the Democrats, although there are many Republican acolytes.

The age of centralization and government is passing, cause of death the centrifugal devolution of information, computing and communications power, and weaponry to individuals. Governments will mount repressive rearguard actions, but they can’t fight the central reality of our time: they have failed, massively, and are unable to contain the fallout and blowback. Globalism—more of the same, only bigger—is running into resistance that’s still gathering steam. Just wait until the world’s debt-based financial system and economy collapse.

The Democrats have hitched their wagon to a falling star. When facts are uncongenial, take refuge in fantasy. Democrats embrace the whimsical notion that Hillary Clinton deserved to win the 2016 election. She had to cheat to beat ((((((Bernie Sanders)))))), a socialist who would further yoke the party to the falling star. It’s charitable to call her record undistinguished. If she weren’t Bill Clinton’s wife she’d have no record at all. She had trouble citing accomplishments or detailing a program. Her campaign was inept, crowned by the “deplorables” insult that cost her the election.

The Democrats’ academic branch office and intellectual vanguard has gone farthest off the deep end. Socialists in training demand free (to them) higher education, and free (to them) housing and medical care plus a guaranteed income once they’re out of school. Who pays for all this in a country carrying $200 trillion plus in debt and unfunded obligations? Not their problem—they issue demands, not solutions.

From once illustrious institutions has come an exciting panoply of newly discovered gender variations—with matching pronouns—and sexual deviancies. No minority group claiming victimhood and mouthing the required pieties is too small for the solicitous concern of campus social justice warriors. Anyone who questions socialism, identity politics, or mandated tolerance is met with an intolerant storm of vitriol that increasingly transmutes into violence.

The left’s signature issues resonate with perhaps 30 percent of the electorate. Russiagate gets a rise out of even less. Yet these burning issues are the horses the Democrat will ride come November.

Some are inclined to write off the Trump-Russia collusion story as yet another fantasy, irrelevant to most Americans, but it’s much more than that. That it’s pure concoction finds ultimate confirmation in one simple fact: its proponents have not offered a scintilla of actual proof.

We’ve had assessments, assertions, maybes, might haves, could haves, and “informed” speculation; a remote “hack” that couldn’t be a remote hack, but rather an onsite download because of the high transmission speed; a Democratic-funded dossier used as the basis of a FISA court surveillance request and its subsequent renewals; indictments against potential defendants who will never be tried; banner headlines for and endless media trumpeting of inconsequential developments, and prosecutions and plea bargains that have nothing to do with the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia.

They’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink at this gargoyle, but the kitchen sink for which reasonable people keep looking is any hard evidence from those who bear the burden of proof that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. As SLL has said from the beginning, the story is pathetically flimsy, a sign of its purveyors’ weakness, not strength. It’s driven not by Russophobia, but prosecution-phobia. Washington broke into insane hysteria the night of November 6, 2016 not because Donald Trump said he’d seek better relations with Russia, but because of his catchphrase: “Drain the Swamp!”

Trump knows or suspects where some of the bodies are buried, and the powers that be fear he’ll go after them for everything from garden-variety graft, bribery, theft, and influence peddling to crimes as sordid as child molestation and murder.

Plot Holes,” SLL, 2/26/17

Corruption and criminality have been a way of life in Washington for decades. Trump is clearly a threat.

This, not the fear that Trump will revise US policy towards Russia, is behind the Deep State’s cold sweat, motivating its hysterical—comical if wasn’t so serious—campaign to depose him. This is the first time it has faced an unfriendly in the White House, with presidential powers to investigate, expose, prosecute, scandalize, and ruin.

Plot Holes

Trump has driven his opposition batshit crazy. Drowning in their own fetid fantasies and irretrievable irrelevance, he’s got an opportunity to throw them anchors. It’s the perfect time to go on the offensive.

If the economy and stock market hold up, if the US doesn’t invade anybody, and if no nuclear bombs drop between now and November, the Democratic blue wave will be just another one of their fantasies. The election may well amount to an endorsement of Trump. However, nothing is set in stone and if the blue wave does materialize, Trump guarantees himself two years of headaches and obstruction, at best, and impeachment—if rabid Democrats get their way—at worse. Forget about any prosecution of the Deep State and the clowns who have led its inept coup, it could be Trump wearing the new black.

Taking Rand Paul’s suggestion and revoking the security clearances for some of those clowns—John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, ((((((Michael Hayden)))))), and Andrew McCabe—would be a powerful first step. It signals that something more serious—indictment and prosecution—may be on the way. He would be moving against enemies who have so overplayed their weak hand they’ve actually increased his support. Although there would be plenty of flack, especially from the captured media, the majority of Americans would applaud the move.

It would send another, subtextual message as well. It turns the treason calumny against those who have so irresponsibly used it.

You take away security clearances from people who pose a security threat. These conspirators are part of a cabal trying to remove the legitimately elected president of the United States. They are using their Russiagate concoction to oppose at every turn any attempt by Trump to improve relations with the one country on the planet that has as many nuclear weapons as the US. This dangerous, arrogant, and corrupt cabal represents a grave threat to what remains of the rule of law, the institution of the presidency, and the life of every American.

They must be stopped. It’s time for Trump to stop them.

Now or Never, by Robert Gore

Congress Forced to Send US Marshals to Serve Lisa Page with Subpoena

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
July 12, 2018

So this diabolical bitch, who is already on record as being part of a conspiracy to stop Trump from being elected and then to get him wrapped up in a hoax conspiracy with Russia to start a fishing expedition to impeach him, was refusing to appear before Congress.

To the point that they were forced to send US Marshals after her.

And now she’s saying she still isn’t going to appear.

Fox News:

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said Wednesday that Republicans recently were forced to call in U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to testify before Congress, as he accused Page of “apparently” having “something to hide.”

The revelation came after Page’s lawyer claimed she “will cooperate with this investigation,” even as Page defied that subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees.

Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair.

Goodlatte told Fox News that Page’s attorney initially agreed to accept service of the subpoena for Page, but “then turned around and immediately tried to reject it.”

“So that’s why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena,” the Virginia Republican said. “They had to go back three times before they were finally able to reach her.”

Attorney Amy Jeffress told Fox News that Page would not appear on Capitol Hill on Wednesday because they did not have enough time to prepare. She said they would ask lawmakers to schedule another date for the closed-door interview.

President Trump lashed out at Page in a tweet on Wednesday evening, accusing her of aiding a “rigged witch hunt” at the FBI against him.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican chairmen of the two committees sent a letter Page and her legal team laying out three options. That includes showing up at a public hearing with Strzok on Thursday, appearing for a closed door deposition Friday or facing more legal trouble.

“Interviewing your client, Lisa Page, is an important part of this investigation,” Goodlatte and Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., wrote in the letter.

The letter lays out a timeline, stating that, if Page does not appear, the committee “intends to initiate contempt proceedings” on Friday at 10:30 a.m.

“She has been in complete defiance of cooperation with the House Judiciary Committee and the Oversight and Government committee for seven months now,” Goodlatte said. “I think it’s very important for her to understand that she should comply with it now before she’s held in contempt of Congress, which could happen as soon as Friday.”

In a statement released Wednesday, Page’s lawyer dismissed Goodlatte’s claim that she has something to hide.

“There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify,” Jeffress said.

I have no idea why this stuff has gone on this long. This bitch should have had her home raided as soon as those initial “secret society” and “don’t worry, we’ll stop him” tweets were released a year ago.

But finally, the wheels are turning.

Trump is now on the attack.

No one who watched any portion of that Rod Rosenstein hearing can believe that this is anything other than a conspiracy by the so-called “deep state” to destroy Donald Trump, and that all of these people, up to Obama, are guilty of treason.

Strzok has already testified behind closed doors, but he was told by Rosenstein not to answer any questions. Rosenstein answered no questions. The DOJ and FBI have still not complied with Congressional requests for documents.

But all they are doing is stalling.

Why?

Rosenstein can I guess flee to Israel.

But Trump needs to be careful. The fact that they are stalling means they apparently believe they have some ace in the hole. Otherwise, what the hell are they up to?

Buying time for what? 

Strzok to Appear in Front of the People

Strzok is now being forced to testify publicly.

Fox News:

Embattled anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok is set to testify publicly for the first time on Thursday before House Republicans investigating bias at the nation’s top law enforcement agency, just one day after his former lover at the FBI, attorney Lisa Page, ducked a Congressional subpoena.

GOP leaders are expected to grill Strzok at a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees beginning at 10 a.m. EST.

Their focus will be the slew of Trump-bashing texts Strzok sent using his FBI phone while conducting investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server, as well as the possible impact of any political bias on investigative decisions. Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe earlier this year after his texts were revealed.

In particular, lawmakers have keen interest in questioning Strzok on why he did not act immediately when potentially classified emails were found on a laptop belonging to ((((((Anthony Weiner)))))), who was married at the time to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

He’s just going to refuse to answer questions again, no?

How can he answer these questions?

Honestly, the whole Congressional hearing thing needs to wrap up.

He already appeared and didn’t answer questions.

Publicly appearing and doing the same thing means what?

We need to open criminal proceedings, and it needs to be someone other than the FBI or the DOJ that opens the criminal proceedings.

OH, The NSA is Mass-Purging Years Worth of Spying Data. Interesting Decision.

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
July 3, 2018

I wonder why an organization obsessed with collecting information would be purging information?

The claim that they are concerned about legality almost seems like they’re making a joke.

That the data is corrupted in some vague manner is almost a dumber explanation. What does that even mean? Did it contain trojans? 

All things being equal, one would assume they’re worried about a subpoena. Which is generally the reason you find people mass deleting electronic records.

Of course the NSA can’t be subpoenaed. They can, however, be ordered by the President of the United States – a man named Donald J. Trump – to turn over entire databases of illegal spying information that would have the entire phone records of everyone in the country.

Washington Times:

The National Security Agency is deleting more than 685 million call records the government obtained since 2015 from telecommunication companies in connection with investigations, raising questions about the viability of the program.

The NSA’s bulk collection of call records was initially curtailed by Congress after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked documents revealing extensive government surveillance. The law, enacted in June 2015, said that going forward, the data would be retained by telecommunications companies, not the NSA, but that the intelligence agency could query the massive database.

lol yeah, true reform.

The telecoms just held the information and sent it all to them. With Vault 7, we know now that the CIA was doing the original thing anyway on an even bigger (or at least more efficient) scale than the Snowden leaks showed the NSA doing.

Nothing is private online, kids.

Now the NSA is deleting all the information it collected from the queries.

The agency released a statement late Thursday saying it started deleting the records in May after NSA analysts noted “technical irregularities in some data received from telecommunication service providers.” It also said the irregularities resulted in the NSA obtaining some call details it was not authorized to receive.

That points to a failure of the program, according to David Kris, a former top national security official at the Justice Department.

“They said they have to purge three years’ worth of data going back to 2015, and that the data they did collect during that time – which they are now purging – was not reliable and was infected with some kind of technical error,” said Kris, founder of Culper Partners, a consulting firm in Seattle. “So whatever insights they were hoping to get over the past three years from this program of collection … is all worthless. Because of that, they are throwing all the data away and basically starting over.”

Definitely a strange move.

Almost like someone’s got a knife to their throat.

Of course, it could be nothing.

Actually, no, really – it would have to be something and it would have to be something other than “oh sorry this was an accident lol my bad delete everything.”

Remember, friends: Pizzagate is real.

And Donald J. Trump knows it.

Austria Sends Troops to Border for Migration Response Exercises

New border patrol police unit called Puma as well as performers of “strangers” take part in the exercise “ProBorders” at the Spielfeld border crossing in Austria on June 26, 2018.

Several hundred Austrian police officers and soldiers performed an exercise on the country’s southern border with Slovenia on Tuesday to simulate different responses to any repeat of the 2015 migrant crisis.

Over 500 policemen and 220 soldiers took part at the border crossing of Spielfeld, according to an AFP correspondent at the scene.

“A state which can’t protect its borders when needed loses its credibility,” said Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, who oversaw the exercise along with Defence Minister Mario Kunasek.

Both men are members of the far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), which since last year has been the junior partner in a coalition government under conservative Chancellor Sebastian Kurz which has been at pains to emphasise its anti-immigration message.

Among the military hardware on display on Tuesday were two “Black Hawk” helicopters. During the exercises police cadets played the role of migrants standing at border gates asking to be let in.

The event also saw the first outing for a new police border protection force comprising some 600 officers, dubbed the “Puma” unit.

Several thousand migrants passed through Spielfeld in the summer of 2015 as part of the “Balkan route” towards northern Europe, although local police say the current rate of such crossings is almost zero.

A clampdown on immigration was a key message from the FPOe and Kurz’s People’s Party (OeVP) in last year’s elections and the government has made clear its wish for a restrictive policy on an EU level, with an emphasis on the need to toughen up the EU’s external borders.

Last week Kurz raised the spectre of a repeat of the crisis of 2015, which he said would be a “catastrophe”, if the EU did not agree a common position.

Meanwhile he has made common cause with high-profile politicians from the Bavarian CSU, who have been clashing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel by demanding a harder line in migration policy.
