TPP vs. NSA: Mind my privacy vs. Whats your worry?

Here are some Orwellian memes for citizens and rulers about privacy that have proven useful for the DC campaign trail.

"Fellow citizens, privacy is not an issue in regards to the NSA, so please remember: 'If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about'."

"Fellow citizens, privacy is essential in regards to the TPP, so please remember 'we have nothing to hide and need our privacy-- mind your own damn business'."


Hillary Clinton’s Lucrative Life of Crime

Bill and Hillary Clinton “earned” — can a mortal earn such stratospheric sums? — “at least $30 million over the last 16 months, mainly from giving paid speeches to corporations, banks and other organizations,” The New York Times reports. “They have now earned more than $125 million on the [lecture] circuit since leaving the White House in 2001.”

This is an important issue. But the big story has little to with what actually matters.

Coverage of the Clintons’ spectacularly lucrative speaking career has focused on how it affects Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign — specifically the political damage caused by the public’s growing perception that Hillary is out of touch with the common man and woman. It is a promising line of inquiry for her detractors (myself included).


What Rand Paul Accomplished in a 10 Hour, 31 Minute Stand Against the Patriot Act

by David Weigel | Bloomberg

Jeb Bush was spending the evening in New Hampshire, stumping for votes in his as yet undeclared campaign. John Kasich was in New York City, working over donors for his as yet undeclared campaign. Senator Rand Paul, the presidential candidate who has pledged to smash “the Washington machine,” was on the floor of the U.S. Senate, asking the world’s greatest deliberative body to actually show up and deliberate the renewal of the Patriot Act.

For 10 hours and 31 minutes, Paul and three fellow Republicans joined seven Democrats to debate terrorism, privacy and the Bill of Rights. The Kentuckian promised not to rest "as long as my legs can stand," daring President Obama to end bulk data collection, and attempting to delay the debate on Patriot and the USA Freedom Act—the legislation that divides civil libertarians. From time to time, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden would take the floor to praise Paul and explain why the anti-terror law could not be rushed through.

CNN, Fox News Reveal Qualifications for First GOP Presidential Primary Debates

The 2016 Republican presidential primary contest may feature sixteen or more candidates. Fox News and CNN recently announced the criteria that will be used to select the candidates that will be included in, and, in Fox News' case, excluded from, the first two GOP presidential primary debates.

By Barry Donegan - May 21, 2015 13

In light of the fact that, according to Ballot Access News, the Republican National Committee decided not to establish rules for inclusion in the 2016 GOP presidential primary debates, the networks hosting the debates will each set their own criteria for candidates. The Washington Post is reporting that Fox News and CNN have announced the qualifications for their first debates. Considering the fact that there are 16 or more Republican candidates flirting with a bid at the White House, news networks have been struggling to come up with a way to fit all of the top contenders on one stage.

Fox News announced that it will include the top 10 candidates based on their averages in the five most recent national polls, calculated at 5 PM EST on August 4, leading up to its first debate on August 5 in Cleveland. The debate will be hosted by Megyn Kelly, Brett Baier, and Chris Wallace and will be co-presented by Facebook.


Jeb Bush: Rand Paul is "Wrong" About PATRIOT Act.

Jeb Bush defends policies of Bush/Cheney-SHOCKER!!!

National Review:

Former governor Jeb Bush (R., Fla.) dismissed Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster against the mass collection of phone records authorized by the Patriot Act, saying today that the National Security Agency program is constitutional.

“I think he’s wrong in saying that this is unconstitutional or saying that people’s freedoms have been violated by the Patriot Act,” Bush said in New Hampshire.

“I think we need to reauthorize the Patriot Act, and put aside who’s speaking where. The simple fact is that it’s been an effective tool to keep us free and to keep us from being attacked by Islamic terrorists.”


Snowden: Rand Paul Filibuster Represents ‘Sea Change’

Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) 10-hour floor speech opposing the Patriot Act represents a “sea change” in Congress, government leaker Edward Snowden said Thursday.

Slightly more than 12 hours after Paul — a presidential candidate in 2016 — finished his marathon lambasting of the post-9/11 security law, Snowden took to Reddit to take questions about Congress’s debate over the National Security Agency (NSA).

“Whatever you think about Rand Paul or his politics, it's important to remember that when he took the floor to say 'No' to any length of reauthorization of the Patriot Act, he was speaking for the majority of Americans — more than 60% of whom want to see this kind of mass surveillance reformed or ended,” Snowden wrote, citing a recent poll released by the American Civil Liberties Union.

‘Weaponizing Vulnerabilities': New Snowden Doc Reveals Spy Agencies Targeted Smartphones

May 21, 2015 | Common Dreams

(Common Dreams) – The intelligence alliance known as Five Eyes—comprising the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Australia—exploited security weaknesses in one of the world’s most popular browsers to obtain data about users and planned to use links to Google and Samsung app stores to infect smartphones with spyware, a top secret National Security Agency (NSA) document published Wednesday has revealed.

According to the 2012 document, leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden and published jointly by CBC News and The Intercept, the NSA and its international counterparts took part in a series of workshops between November 2011 and February 2012 to find new ways to exploit smartphone technology for spying operations.
