The FBI. — yes, the freakin’ FBI. — has cameras on Seattle streets and a judge has just forbidden releasing information about them. Why should the FBI be doing street-level surveillance in U.S. cities (if they’re in Seattle, they’re everywhere else)? We can’t know and I haven’t found a single article that tells more than this one does. (H/T @EasyMac308 on Gab) Why aren’t Americans moving away from impoverished, jobless areas? Government, of course. Oh, there are SO many problems with technocracy — as the technocrats themselves are now learning the hard way (after they made millions of us learn…

I’d call that an offer the fedgov shouldn’t refuse: Assange will agree to be extradited to the U.S. if Manning is freed. Gutsy and honorable play on Assange’s part, too. When they tell you Russia hacked this or that, always remember … Greenwald does it again: best summation I’ve seen of the origins and methods of the deep state’s war on Trump. The Russian techie named in this week’s dirty dump says U.S. intelligence (sic) never contacted him. And the former British spy paid (by Dems and anti-Trump Repubicans) to dig up, or make up, the dirty dossier flees in…

Chortle. Microsoft finally admits (cluelessly or dishonestly) that its malware-upgrade on Win 10 went just an itty-bitty bit too far. Great illustration, too. And it seems MS is not the only gang of elitists in upper Washington state going a bit too far. Closing freeways so a football team can pass? Gimme a break; even if it were legal, it would be beyond outrageous. One more reason Mr. Policeman is not your friend. And another. And this horrendous court ruling reminds us that not only is Ms or Mr. Policeman not your dog’s friend, but neither are the courts. Are…

  • OMG. Someone’s planning a flying selfie camera. None of us will be safe from Other People’s Idiocy. (H/T MJR)
  • True, Glenn Greenwald. And very well observed. Now, if the R-party had actually have done anything about all its noble self-criticism …
  • Sigh. We’d probably still end up with a CIA director who wants Edward Snowden dead and an AG who thinks anti-gun Project Exile is the bee’s knees.

  • Chelsea Manning has asked Obama to cut her ghastly sentence to time served. Good luck, Chelsea.
  • Larry Correia writes a guide for liberals who are suddenly interested in gun ownership.
  • The whimpering “safe space” infants aren’t only on college campuses. Andrew Torba, founder of Gab.ai has been banned from the directory and community of the famous venture capital outfit Y Combinator because his very existence makes people feel “unsafe.”

  • Bill Weld has turned the Libertarian Party into even more of a fiasco than it’s previously been. He’s not only driving away individuals with his ignorant anti-gunnery and his preening support for Hillary Clinton. Even state LP organizations are holding their noses and running from him.
  • Mike Jordan, who participated in the Cascadia Rising exercise and is busily answering questions for a Living Freedom interview, sends along these two links — mostly of interest to communications folks: Cascadia Rising Resources and the Department of (Achtung!) Homeland Security’s National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (which Mike say is damn good considering the highly suspect source. Scary, but also full of wonderful info, he adds).

    OMG, it’s an all-politics links day. Avoid if you’re already overdosed. But what can I say? The election is a trainwreck that’s impossible to look away from. These people are “better” than entire herds of Kardashian-Jenners.

    The emprire moves on Assange

    Yesterday, rumors roiled the Internet waters: Julian Assange is dead. The U.S. government finally moved in on him. The first rumor was not true. The second … appears to be. Assange’s Internet access has been cut off, supposedly by a “state party.” Which means the U.S. fedgov even if some other state acted as its proxy. At the same time, the UK bank accounts of the Russian state media, RT or Russia Today, were frozen without explanation. Assange is widely assumed to have gotten his damning Hillary Clinton emails from hackers associated with the Russian government. Whatever the reality of…
