2004 THIS IS A REAL UFO SIGHTING

“60 Minutes” in May, Mr. Bigelow said he was “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist and that U.F.O.s have visited Earth.

STUPID AMERICANS HELD BACK BY THEIR UFO JUVENILE TABOO TALK.

SCIENCE FICTION IS NOW FACT
SO GET OVER YOUR IGNORANT SELVES

The program collected video and audio recordings of reported U.F.O. incidents, including footage from a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet showing an aircraft surrounded by some kind of glowing aura traveling at high speed and rotating as it moves. The Navy pilots can be heard trying to understand what they are seeing. “There’s a whole fleet of them,” one exclaims. Defense officials declined to release the location and date of the incident.

Luis Elizondo, who led the Pentagon effort to investigate U.F.O.s until October. He resigned to protest what he characterized as excessive secrecy and internal opposition to the program.
Mr. Bigelow, Bigelow Aerospace, Mr. Reid, Mr. John Glenn, Mr. Elizondo,  Mr. Stevens and Mr. Inouye, used to work with the Navy, C.I.A.  Pentagon, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Harold E. Puthoff, William Lynn III
Robert Bigelow, a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid, received most of the money allocated for the Pentagon program. On CBS’s “60 Minutes” in May, Mr. Bigelow said he was “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist and that U.F.O.s have visited Earth.

The sightings were reported to the Pentagon’s shadowy, little-known Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program
$600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.

How to report what the military calls unexplained aerial phenomena, or unidentified flying objects.

Videos filmed by Navy pilots show two encounters with flying objects.

One was captured by a plane’s camera off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla., on Jan. 20, 2015. That footage, published previously but with little context, shows an object tilting like a spinning top moving against the wind. A pilot refers to a fleet of objects, but no imagery of a fleet was released. The second video was taken a few weeks later.

Hacker Finds He Can Remotely Kill Car Engines After Breaking Into GPS Tracking Apps By Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/zmpx4x/hacker-monitor-cars-kill-engine-gps-tracking-apps

“I can absolutely make a big traffic problem all over the world,” the hacker said.
A hacker broke into thousands of accounts belonging to users of two GPS tracker apps, giving him the ability to monitor the locations of tens of thousands of vehicles and even turn off the engines for some of them while they were in motion, Motherboard has learned.
The hacker, who goes by the name L&M, told Motherboard he hacked into more than 7,000 iTrack accounts and more than 20,000 ProTrack accounts, two apps that companies use to monitor and manage fleets of vehicles through GPS tracking devices. The hacker was able to track vehicles in a handful of countries around the world, including South Africa, Morocco, India, and the Philippines. On some cars, the software has the capability of remotely turning off the engines of vehicles that are stopped or are traveling 12 miles per hour or slower, according to the manufacturer of certain GPS tracking devices.
By reverse engineering ProTrack and iTrack’s Android apps, L&M said he realized that all customers are given a default password of 123456 when they sign up. At that point, the hacker said he brute-forced “millions of usernames” via the apps’ API. Then, he said he wrote a script to attempt to login using those usernames and the default password. </>

Easier Than Robbing A Bank:’ City of Chicago Almost Lost More Than $1 Million In Phishing Scam
The City of Chicago’s Department of Aviation thought it was paying an approved vendor more than $1 million for services earlier this year.
But your tax dollars didn’t reach them. The money almost went to what appeared to be a phishing scam that police are now investigating as a business email compromise.
While the city recovered the money, the incident almost cost taxpayers seven figures and raises red flags about the integrity of Chicago’s cyber-security system.

Why Won’t @Jack Twitter Treat White Supremacy Like ISIS? Because It Would Mean Banning Some Republican Politicians Too by Joseph Cox and Jason Koebler
A Twitter employee who works on machine learning believes that a proactive, algorithmic solution to white supremacy would also catch Republican politicians.
At a Twitter all-hands meeting on March 22, an employee asked a blunt question: Twitter has largely eradicated Islamic State propaganda off its platform. Why can’t it do the same for white supremacist content?

Fort Bragg cut power for thousands to test ‘real-world reactions’ to a cyber-attack By Mark Price
The Charlotte Observer
April 25, 2019
Fort Bragg in North Carolina says the Army base had a “blackout” for more than 12 hours overnight Wednesday as part of a cyber-attack military exercise that came as a complete surprise to its tens of thousands of residents.
The fort, which the Army says is the world’s largest military base, says it cut off the electricity “to identify shortcomings in our infrastructure, operations and security.”
“Fort Bragg has to train for any possible threats to the installation in order to remain mission capable,” said a post on Fort Bragg’s Facebook page just after 11 a.m.
“This exercise was not announced in order to replicate likely real-world reactions by everyone directly associated with the installation. In today’s world, cyber-attacks are very likely. This exercise is exactly what we needed to do to identify our vulnerabilities and work to improve our security and deployment posture.”

Hitler became Chancellor and Trump President with a minority of the vote.

Hitler became Chancellor and Trump President with a minority of the vote.

by Jonathan A. Weiss Esq.

Trump’s electoral college victory, with a loss of about 3 millions votes, occurred because of a disastrous “perfect storm.”

  1. The Electoral College itself
    In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College.
  2. Voter suppression with suspected miscounting and Jill Stein’s run (with echoes of Nader effect in Florida – Clinton lost by approximately the same number of votes in Wisconsin that Stein received.)
  3. Russian meddling with the internet and possibly with election boards. (4) Comey’s inexcusable unprecedented announcement “reopening Clinton investigation” a few days before the election
  4. Misogyny with some failures in Clinton campaign such as not visiting “battleground” States.

Trump himself is a malignant narcissist paranoid pathological liar racist misogynist insecure bully/coward reactive ignorant idiot. Hitler did not possess all these defects. He was a madman. So is Trump.

Trump has also surrounded himself with incompetent corrupt people (who are opposed to the objectives of their departments’ goals) and nepotism.

The deep connections between his business enterprises and governments is unique.

His foreign policy antagonizes allies and embraces autocrats
(as Hitler did but only with Stalin, Mussolini, and Japan) rejecting direct territorial expansions. Hitler’s henchmen, unlike Trump’s, although saturated with evil, were mainly quite able and effective in their execution of projects. So, it would be wrong to analogize one to the other for these and possibly other reasons. On the other hand, the difference in their actions is often one of degree not nature, primarily because of the resistance of longstanding institutions, now tattered and being undermined. A few selected illustrations follow.

(1) The Creation of a “Crisis” for a Campaign and Reign.
Hitler used the Reichstag fire, which most historians think, the Nazis set to galvanize support. Trump rants and raves (from the beginning of his announcement of his run) about the “crisis” of immigrants with “caravans” of violent criminals, drug dealers, and bad people “invading” our country requiring a massive wall, expulsions without any due process hearings, widespread arrests, etc, the constant subject of slogans, chants, and “tweets”.

(2) Concentration Camps
Hitler diverted resources from his military as the war ended just to execute and incarcerate Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, etc., particularly noted, the Jews as an obsession. Trump has erected many concentration camps (many run for profit by private prison companies) on the border to keep those classified as “illegal aliens” separating babies from families. He happily continues Guantanamo. These concentration camps than those disgracefully established for the Japanese in World War II.

(3) Racism and Religious Bigotry
Hitler had his Jews. Trump, as referenced above, started his campaigns by railing against “Mexicans” and now continues against Latinos from Guatemala, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. Consider (and compare with mainland American natural disasters) his treatment of Americans in hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.

Hitler hated Jews as a race. Undoubtedly, he would have wanted those who identify with the religion or culture to disappear in the Final Solution.

Trump has the one billion or so Muslims. He tried to ban any Muslim immigration and mainly succeeded when the retrograde Supreme Court (after granting a Christian baker the right to discriminate against homosexual’s ordering a wedding cake) allowed a ban which did not mention the adherents of Islam by name although clearly directed at them. (A 19th Century case struck down a law designed against Chinese laundries.) In a debate, among his other lies, he claimed he saw a multitude in New Jersey celebrating the toppling of the World Trade Towers. He continues unabated to demonize them.

(4) Free press and journalism
Hitler destroyed it while creating a propaganda machine. (Compare the interepenetration of Fox News and the White House). To the shame of the press corps, they allowed themselves to be separated by fences from the rest of the audience during his rallies. He ceaselessly attacks news coverage as “fake news”, advocates for defamation suits against the media, and even government action against the major network NBC because of a Saturday Night Live rerun, etc. (while the press still features his unhinged “tweets” as news rather than confining the reporting to official public acts and pronouncements).

(5) Antisemitism
It is necessary to distinguish the government of Israel and Israel; Israel and Jews. One can oppose the government and support Israel. One can oppose how Israel is constituted, attitudes, and some actions while still being a Jew. Trump embraces Netanayu as a far right leader while in his ghosted books he disparages them as beanie wearing bookkeepers. Some worry Jews might be blamed because of his inclusion of Miller and Kuchner (and converted wife) in his inner circle – though no more have been added – but the former is such a raving racist reactionary he can not be connected to any sane version of Judaism and the Kuchner’s represent just nepotism.

(6) Military Buildup
Hitler used great sums of money to build an army and, ironically Keynsian, the economy. In Trump’s budget he proposes to cut domestic programs radically while expanding the military (and continuing its presence in Yemen…and almost 70 other areas, Afganistan, Iraq, and Syria.)

(7) Demagoging and Violence
The “big lie”. best repeated often, played, and plays, a central role in both of their rhetorical appeals to audiences. Hitler, many believe, was a mesmerizing orator, His speeches were more inflammatory than his sometimes ally Mussolini. Trump leads rallies with chants, slogans (e.g. “Lock her up!”) designed to engineer mass consent from his devoted followers, inflammatory claims, and well documented many dangerous lies, etc.. It appears that the tone he has set (including the failure to condemn right wing violence) has created an atmosphere where deranged individuals (and even mobs) feel entitled to commit acts against schools, assemblies (including 0religious and public), and individuals while vigilante groups “patrol” the border. Both offer racist tropes to which Trump adds Misogyny.

(8) The Judiciary
Hitler destroyed his. With McConnel’s aiding and abetting, Trumps has done his utmost to stuff the Federal Judiciary (thus far his only main restraint) with rigid reactionaries from the Federalist Society pipeline.

Other illustrations are available ( e.g. permitting – facilitating in Trump’s case – the destruction of countryside and cities) But, sufficient unto this article is the evil therein.

Abraham Lincoln famously said: “You can fool some the people all of the time. You can fool some of the people some of the time. But you can not fool all the people all of the time.”

The question for our time is
whether you can fool enough.

The Perfect Storm For All the Internet

In 1994 the Internet was allowed to become commercialized. From the perfect ivory tower of and Hippie Culture of love, honesty, and making the world a better place they powers allowed commercial activity for the first time.

Ooops the grandfathers of the internet, who along with others knew full well what “Smart thinkers” were capable of  ie: the bomb…… they let the little thing called security get away from them… so yeah the net will N E V E R be secure PERIOD!

AND since the same people don’t think regulation is of much use because (any excuse you want)  …. you know they’ve only NOW come to say out loud that those liars and thieves who were supposed to “do no evil” and would be sure to “police themselves” might in fact act like the criminals  celebrated by wall street

Imagine all those original fathers of the internet with all their IQ points,  educations, national experience and  those awards!

WHAT did they actually do to all of us? Please remind me. . . . .

Trump Goes Beyond Cronyism—To Something Far Worse

William Barr Accidentally Concedes His Reason for Withholding the Mueller Report Is Baloney

Barr showed how hollow his position of withholding the full report from Congress is.

Trump has Barr and his Daddy had Roy Cohn and see Once a long time ago we  had Leon Jaworski.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/04/william-barr-testimony-mueller-report-baloney-watergate.html

Barr: I don’t know if it would be unprecedented since I’m not really sure what happened in the Watergate situation. I know the report came out 50 years later, I think. – what a smart mouth answer!! who wants to tolerate that!!

And Barr, noted the perfect precedent:
Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski’s cooperation and sharing of confidential grand jury materials with the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate inquiry.

In that case, which Barr brought up, a “Road Map” for impeachment from the Watergate grand jury itself was released publicly last October after 44 years of being sealed by the court.

However, that Road Map—with all of the secret grand jury material that it included—was sent at the time of the Watergate investigation directly to Congress for consideration.

How we got the Imperial Presidency

By naming people such as Herman Cain and Stephen Moore to top jobs, Trump converts the machinery of government to his personal use.

Donald Trump’s administration, however, has transcended cronyism and declared a war on expertise, in which unbiased knowledge is itself somehow politically suspect if it does not accord with President Trump’s beliefs and assertions—and especially if it conflicts with his personal interests. In this administration, complicated issues are not problems to be solved or tasks to be administered for the public good, but threats to be hammered down by alert sycophants. As the Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro once put it: “My function, really, as an economist is to try to provide the underlying analytics that confirm his intuition. And his intuition is always right in these matters.”

Former top prosecutor: Trump ‘effectively’ named co-conspirator

The previous US lawyer in control of the Southern District of New York federal prosecutor’s administrative center has instructed Sky Information, in his view, that the administrative center has “successfully” named Donald Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal offense.

Preet Bharara used to be regarding a sentencing memo written by way of prosecutors about Michael Cohen, the president’s former non-public legal professional.

“In testy exchange, Rep. Maxine Waters tells Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, “no other secretary has ever told us the day before that they were going to limit their time.” “You’re ordering me to stay here …. that’s not what I want to do,” Mnuchin says
