‘CIA created ISIS’, says Julian Assange as Wikileaks releases 500k US cables (Video)

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange today said the CIA was responsible for paving the way for ISIS as the whistle blowing organisation released more than half a million formerly confidential US diplomatic cables dating back to 1979.

On the sixth anniversary of the first infamous “Cablegate” by WikiLeaks, when it releases its first batch of sensitive US files, on November 28 2010, it has expanded its Public Library of US Diplomacy (PLUSD) with 531,525 new diplomatic cables from 1979.

In a statement to coincide with the release of the cables, known as “Carter Cables III”, Mr Assange explained how events which unfolded in 1979, had begun a series of events that led to the rise of ISIS.

He said: “If any year could be said to be the “year zero” of our modern era, 1979 is it.”

Mr Assange said a decision by the CIA, together with Saudi Arabia, to plough billions of dollars into arming the Mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan to tackle the Soviet Union, had led to the creation of terror group al-Qaeda.

This, in turn, he said led to the 9/11 terror strikes, the invasion of Afghanhistan and Iraq by the US, and the creation of ISIS.

The Spy Who Shagged Himself – Intellectual Froglegs (Video)

We are up against the most radical lefties that have EVER been in power in America… they detest what America stands for—- that’s why Obama wanted to ‘fundamentally change’ it…and now they have been rejected by the American people and they’ve completely lost their minds.

Anyone surprised Obama won’t go away? I didn’t think so. And neither are we surprised to find that our former lawless President abused even more of his executive powers as he walked out the door…leaving landmines and booby traps for Trump at every turn.

Equally as offensive is the behavior of our media…which is merely an extension of the ‘establishment’ or ‘Deep State’ as they call it.

Thank God for Donald Trump. I know of no other human that could survive the brutal pounding he receives daily from our national media.

As Newt Gingrich accurately pointed out, 80-90% of the media are ‘the opposition party’…These people are not journalists, they are propagandists.

Trump has NONE of the benefits Obama enjoyed… no political media, no sports media, no Hollywood, no print media, no Entertainment Industry…. with just a handful of friendly media, Trump has us.

Did President Obama Spy On Donald Trump? | True News – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

On March 4th, 2016, President Donald Trump published a series of tweets alleging that former President Barack Obama and his administration spied on him during his presidential campaign. President Barack Obama’s carefully worded statement to President Trump’s accusations have only added fuel to the political fire engulfing the highest office in the United States.

Donald Trump Questions ‘Sick Guy’ Barack Obama for ‘Wire Tapping’ His Campaign

President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his campaign headquarters during the election in a series of messages on Twitter.

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory,” he wrote on Twitter. “Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

Trump questioned whether it was legal for Obama to be wiretapping a presidential candidate while he was still in office.

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp (sic) my phones during the very sacred election process,” he wrote. “This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!”

Trump is likely referring to calls from talk radio hosts Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh to investigate the nature of the Obama administration’s investigations of his campaign aides for their communications with Russia, as Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak reported.

As former Heat Street editor Louise Mensch reported the day before the election, “sources with links to the counter-intelligence community” confirmed that a FISA court had granted a FISA court warrant in October to monitor activities in Trump tower. They were previously denied a request in June, according to the report as well as a report in the Guardian.

Ex-NSA Contractor Stole at Least 500 Million Pages of Records and Secrets, U.S. Says

The Justice Department outlines details of the probe, says it will likely charge Harold Martin with additional crimes.

A former National Security Agency contractor amassed at least 500 million pages of government records, including top-secret information about military operations, by stealing documents bit by bit over two decades, the Justice Department alleged in a court filing submitted Thursday.

Prosecutors in August arrested and charged Harold “Hal” Martin III, of Glen Burnie, Md., with theft of government property and unauthorized removal or retention of classified documents. The case was kept under seal until earlier this month, when some details became public.

The new filing said the Justice Department would likely charge Mr. Martin with additional crimes, including violating the Espionage Act, an offense that carries much stiffer penalties than the current charges.

Mr. Martin’s attorney, Jim Wyda, declined to comment on the new filing. In the past, he has said that Mr. Martin is a patriotic American who has served his country.

A federal court has scheduled a hearing for Friday to consider whether Mr. Martin should be released while awaiting trial. The Justice Department released its 12-page document ahead of that hearing, detailing new allegations about the scope of Mr. Martin’s alleged theft and suggesting he had become heavily armed, accumulating 10 weapons, and had taken sophisticated steps to cover his tracks.

NSA whistleblower says DNC hack was not done by Russia, but by U.S. intelligence

Binney also proclaimed that the NSA has all of Clinton’s deleted emails, and the FBI could gain access to them if they so wished.

On Aaron Klein’s Sunday radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” (broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM), US government whistleblower William Binney threw his hat into the DNC hack ring by stating that the Democratic National Committee’s server was not hacked by Russia but by a disgruntled U.S. intelligence worker.

The motivation of the hacker…concern over Hillary Clinton’s disregard of national security secrets when she used a personal email and consistently lied about it.

Binney was just getting started with revelations we are sure no main stream media news site will dare to cover. The “Putin did it” fairytale is just to easy for the sheep to follow.

Binney also proclaimed that the NSA has all of Clinton’s deleted emails, and the FBI could gain access to them if they so wished. No need for Trump to ask the Russians for those emails, he can just call on the FBI or NSA to hand them over.

Tell Congress and Trump to investigate Hillary!

New demands for fresh, apolitical probe of Espionage Act violations, mishandling state secrets, destroying evidence, more.

Ever since the second presidential debate, when Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton that as president he would “instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” Democrats and the big media have gone wild – accusing Trump of emulating the world’s most evil tyrants and dictators, from Hugo Chavez to Robert Mugabe to Vladimir Putin, despots who routinely imprison – if not shoot – their political opponents.

Trump, however, claims he wants to see Clinton investigated, not because she is a political opponent, but because she has blatantly violated U.S. espionage laws, mishandled top-secret information, destroyed government files and obstructed justice.

Is Trump right in calling for a fresh, independent investigation of Clinton’s “situation”?

How relevant is it that, as multiple news reports confirm, “FBI agents are ready to revolt” over Director James Comey’s “cowardly” whitewash of the bureau’s investigation? Or that even the left-leaning PolitiFact website confirms 33,000 emails were indeed deleted from Clinton’s unsecure private server three weeks after she received a congressional subpoena demanding the production of her emails – an act that normally would result in being held in contempt of Congress. Or that more than half of all Americans – 56 percent according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey – believe Hillary Clinton should have been indicted.

60% of World Wide Web Application Attacks Target USA

Sixty percent of all world wide web applications attacks targeted the United States in the first quarter of 2016, with the majority coming from China, USA and Turkey.

The Interpol 2015 Internet Organized Crime Threat Assessment estimates that cybercrime is “well on the way to surpassing the drug trade.” Once about stealthy theft, cybercrime is increasingly becoming about hostile aggressions. Instead of subterfuge and covertness, there is a growing trend toward the use of extortion and ransomware against “individuals and businesses [that] bears the signature of organized crime.”

The Akamai Intelligent Platform regularly transmits between 15 – 30 percent of all Internet traffic. For the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same quarter in 2015, Akamai reported that denial of service (DDoS) attacks were up 40 percent, and repeat attacks rose dramatically. One customer suffered over 280 attacks in the 90-day period.

There were 19 “mega-attacks” involving 100 Gbps (billions of bits per second), a +137 percent increase from the prior year. The largest bandwidth attack was 289 Gbps.

The average duration of an attack was 16.16 hours. The top targets were:

Gaming (55%)
Software & Technology (25%)
Media & Entertainment (5%)

Romanian hacker Guccifer: I breached Clinton server, ‘it was easy’ (Video)

The former secretary of state’s server held nearly 2,200 emails containing information now deemed classified, and another 22 at the “Top Secret” level.

The infamous Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer,” speaking exclusively with Fox News, claimed he easily – and repeatedly – breached former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal email server in early 2013.

“For me, it was easy … easy for me, for everybody,” Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker “Guccifer,” told Fox News from a Virginia jail where he is being held.

Guccifer’s potential role in the Clinton email investigation was first reported by Fox News last month. The hacker subsequently claimed he was able to access the server – and provided extensive details about how he did it and what he found – over the course of a half-hour jailhouse interview and a series of recorded phone calls with Fox News.

Fox News could not independently confirm Lazar’s claims.

Facebook Filtering Users’ Timelines Stokes Concerns of Censorship and Data-Mining

#Facebook has a long and checkered past concerning the way the company decides what a user sees in his or her #timeline. Now, the #socialmedia giant is changing the formula again, and this time it will impact whether or not users will see articles shared by their friends. The method by which Facebook will do it involves another controversial issue that has dogged the company: data-mining.

Facebook has a long and checkered past concerning the way the company decides what a user sees in his or her timeline. Now, the social media giant is changing the formula again, and this time it will impact whether or not users will see articles shared by their friends. The method by which Facebook will do it involves another controversial issue that has dogged the company: data-mining.

Facebook has built a multi-billion dollar empire by both providing a service its users want and mining the data of those users for the purpose of advertising sales. The method by which Zuckerberg’s company provides the content that keeps its users coming back is a proprietary algorithm which Slate’s senior technology writer, Will Oremus, described in an article in January 2016:

Every time you open Facebook, one of the world’s most influential, controversial, and misunderstood algorithms springs into action. It scans and collects everything posted in the past week by each of your friends, everyone you follow, each group you belong to, and every Facebook page you’ve liked. For the average Facebook user, that’s more than 1,500 posts. If you have several hundred friends, it could be as many as 10,000. Then, according to a closely guarded and constantly shifting formula, Facebook’s news feed algorithm ranks them all, in what it believes to be the precise order of how likely you are to find each post worthwhile.
