HOW DARE ANYONE FROM EDSURGE PROMOTE THIS IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION AS SOMETHING THAT TEACHERS ARE SUPPOSED TO SOLVE. RIDICULOUS!

WHO ARE THESE SO CALLED PRIVACY LEADERS?

Marlo Gaddis is a  chief technology officer of North Carolina’s Wake County Public Schools and should appoint a Chief Privacy Officer to handle what each and every vendor is doing with the data of the children in their schools. What is Gaddis making vendors do with children’s data!

Privacy is the Chief Privacy Officer’s Job why doesn’t Gaddis Hire A Chief Privacy Officer to protect childrens’ DATA !

PROTECT K12 STUDENT PRIVACY DATA
LET THE CLASS ACTION SUITS BEGIN!

THE K12 SCHOOL DISTRICT CTO SHOULD HAVE A POLICY IN PLACE THAT  VETS VENDOR PRODUCTS AND THEY SHOULD GET PERMISSION TO SELL THEIR PRODUCT TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE FIRST PLACE !!!!

k12 edtech vendors privacy policies and terms of service SHOULD HAVE BEEN REVIEWED BY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT BEFORE IT IS ALLOWED TO BE USED IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

WHY WOULD A TEACHER OR PARENT NEED TO FIND OUT IF THEIR CHILD’S PRIVACY IS BEING VIOLATED  — FOR THEMSELVES.

CTO CFO CPO SHOULD ALL HAVE VETTED EVERY SINGLE VENDOR BEFORE ANY TECHNOLOGY WAS EVER SOLD OR USED ON CHILDREN. !!!!!!

Judge Issues Scathing Rebuke of DOJ and Law Firm, Paul Weiss

Judge Issues Scathing Rebuke of DOJ and Law Firm, Paul Weiss By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: May 7, 2019 

If you needed more proof that the United States is heading in the direction of a dystopian authoritarian state, it arrived last Thursday, May 2, when the Chief Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York wrote a decision finding that the U.S. Justice Department had outsourced a criminal investigation to the target of the investigation – Deutsche Bank – and Deutsche Bank’s outside law firm, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. Making the matter all the more interesting, the Chief Judge who wrote the decision, Colleen McMahon, formerly worked for Paul Weiss for 19 years, rising to the rank of partner. She remains, according to this profile, close friends with a number of former and current Paul Weiss lawyers.

Meet the Lawyer Who Gets Citigroup Out of Fraud Charges

By Pam Martens: September 6, 2012  

The following is Part II of an investigative series on Citigroup and fraud. Read Part I here:

It’s one of the few things predictable on Wall Street; an immutable signature on the reply briefs whenever Citigroup is charged with fraud – and that is quite often.

Brad Karp, a partner at the 737-attorney-strong Wall Street law firm, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, has been Citigroup’s go-to guy for fraud allegations since the company was born out of the too-big-too-fail merger of Travelers Group insurance, its myriad Wall Street investment banks, brokerage units, and Citicorp, parent of Citibank.

When the London-based private equity firm, Terra Firma, claimed it had been lied to and defrauded by Citigroup, making it overpay for the purchase of EMI, a British music label, in 2007, Karp and colleagues wrung an 8-0 decision from the jury in favor of Citigroup. Karp was also on hand to witness victory when the trustee for the bankrupt Italian dairy giant, Parmalat, charged Citigroup with fraud. Then there were fraud charges connected to Citigroup’s involvement in the collapse of WorldCom and Enron – along with auction rate securities, rigged stock research and understating its exposure to subprime debt by $39 billion. Karp, Karp, and more Karp. […]

Sullivan & Cromwell’s Rodge Cohen: The Untold Story of the Fed’s $29 Trillion Bailout By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: May 2, 2019 ~

http://wallstreetonparade.com/2019/05/sullivan-cromwells-rodge-cohen-the-untold-story-of-the-feds-29-trillion-bailout/

There is a little noticed audio tape of an interview conducted on August 5, 2010 by investigators for the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), a body convened under the Fraud Enforcement Recovery Act of 2009 to investigate the 2008 financial collapse on Wall Street. The interview is with Rodgin (Rodge) Cohen, Senior Chairman of Sullivan & Cromwell, the preeminent go-to lawyer on Wall Street.

Cohen makes a number of eyebrow-raising admissions during his interview. First, in response to a question, Cohen concedes that he was personally involved in the amendment contained in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act (FDICIA) that changed the Fed’s emergency lending powers under Section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act.

That one-sentence amendment to Section 13(3) was interpreted by the Federal Reserve from December 2007 to mid-2010 as giving it carte blanche to shovel $29 trillion in cumulative loans for as long as 2-1/2 years to Wall Street banks, broker-dealers, investment banks, hedge funds and foreign global banks, backstopped in many cases by dodgy collateral. In one of the Fed’s lending programs, the Primary Dealer Credit Facility (PDCF), it made revolving loans totaling $8.95 trillion, a significant portion of which was based on accepting stocks and junk bonds as collateral at a time when the prices of both were in freefall. (See chart below.)

Reuters Drops a Bombshell: The Big Short Doomsday Machine Is Back

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: April 29, 2019 ~

In what can only be described as a new low in defining deviancy down on Wall Street, Thomson Reuters’ International Financing Review (IFR) reported this past weekend that some of the biggest names on Wall Street have returned to creating and/or trading synthetic collateralized debt obligations (Synthetic CDOs).

The products were a major factor in bringing the U.S. financial system to the brink of failure in 2008. Synthetic CDOs also resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in fines and reputational damage to these same Wall Street behemoths as investigators found that the firms were allowing hedge funds to pick “crap” subprime mortgage bonds to stuff in the CDOs in order to make windfall profits for the hedge fund, which shorted (bet against) the CDOs. The Wall Street firms had full knowledge of what the hedge funds were doing but, nonetheless, peddled the investments as sound to unsuspecting investors. In some instances, the same Wall Street firm that was selling the product as a good investment to public pension funds, school districts, churches and insurance companies, was also making short bets itself against the CDO. In at least one case involving Goldman Sachs, it placed a 10 to 1 short bet on failure of its own product.

Writing for IFR, Christopher Whittall reports that “Trading volumes in synthetic collateralised debt obligations linked to credit indexes are up 40% this year, according to JP Morgan, after topping US$200bn in 2018 on the back of three years of double-digit growth. Meanwhile, analysts predict more than US$100bn in sales of bespoke synthetic CDOs in 2019 following an estimated US$80bn of issuance last year.” […]

Overall, we rate The Epoch Times FAR Right bias

Overall, we rate The Epoch Times FAR Right bias in American Politics

the Epoch Times was one of the top political advertisers on Facebook, paying to promote dozens of pro-Trump videos.

The mysterious paper spent more than everyone except Biden and Trump himself.

Overall, we rate The Epoch Times Right-Center Biased and High for factual reporting regarding USA news, however we rate them Mixed overall due to the publication of Pseudoscience. This source is also highly biased against communist news in regards to China. (M. Huitsing 8/21/2017) (Updated 11/13/2018) https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-epoch-times/

My recent interview with former FBI agent @mhruskin on the methods the Obama administration used to spy on the Trump campaign:

The award-winning documentary In The Name of Confucius premiered in Western Australia in the state library in early December. The film explores the controversy surrounding the operation of the China-administered Confucius Institutes and classrooms that are operating in Australian universities and schools under the guise of teaching Chinese cultural and language.
The screening was hosted by a panel which included the documentary’s lead actress and Miss World Canada 2015 Anastasia (Yefan) Lin. Having grown up in China, Lin said she was all too familiar with the distortion and lies of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and does not want to see these exported to the West.
Other panelists included former MLA Peter Abetz and Dr. Wai-Ling Yeung, the former head of Chinese Studies at Curtin University.

American Restaurant in China Spreads Propaganda Through Communist Hero 

In China, Lei is used as a propaganda tool to describe selfless dedication to the Chinese Communist Party. He did not become popular until after his death, when he was used as a model for obedience to the Party. Foreign companies in China must follow along with the CCP’s demands on propaganda. About 7 out of 10 foreign firms in China have Party branches, according to the deputy head of the CCP’s Organization Department, according to the WSJ. These branches answer directly to the Chinese regime.

Concern was raised in Dec. 2018 when the Associated Press partnered with Xinhua, the major state-run news outlet in mainland China.

An insert in an Iowa newspaper during the midterm elections attempted to swing favor away from President Donald Trump. This ad was sponsored by the CCP in an attempt to sway U.S. public opinion.

How credible is the Epoch Times as a news source

The @EpochTimes head editor @JasperFakkert: is behind Trump, promotes Trump. He says Mueller’s extensive investigation  vindicated Trump so thoroughly. He pronounced there was no evidence of collusion by Trump.
