Privacy group demands Supreme Court halts NSA surveillance programs

A privacy watchdog group on Thursday announced that it will file a petition asking the Supreme Court to vacate the ruling that allows the National Security Agency to gather domestic surveillance data. At a Restore the Fourth rally in Washington, D.C. on Thursday,  the Domestic Surveillance Project division of the Electronic  Privacy Information Center (EPIC) announced plans to once again  urge the high court to revoke authorization of the NSA spy  programs.  The rally was one of many public events held in  the US to protest the NSA surveillance programs first leaked by  whistleblower Edward Snowden last month. “We...

AT&T ,Verizon, Facebook selling customer data

AT&T has announced that it will begin selling customers’ smart phone data to the highest bidder, putting the telecommunications giant in line with Verizon, Facebook and other competitors that quietly use a consumer’s history for marketing purposes. The company claims its new privacy policy, to be updated within   “the next few weeks,” exists to “deliver more relevant  advertising” to users based on which apps they use and their  location, which is provided by GPS-tracking. Apparently  recognizing the natural privacy concerns a customer might have,  AT&T assured the public that all data would be aggregated and  made anonymous to prevent...

Nevada cops sued over forced occupation of private homes

It’s been a few hundred years since the Third Amendment was written to keep King George from quartering British troops in American homes, but a lawsuit just filed in Nevada suggests it’s as relevant as ever. The framers of the Constitution ratified the Third Amendment to  ensure citizens would never again have to accommodate soldiers,  but a few centuries later it’s become more-or-less an antiquated  law that’s rarely referenced in federal court. That changed  recently when a family from Henderson, Nevada accused the local  police department of constitutional violations after officers of  the law allegedly took residence in two...

Militarized police gone wild across America

(NaturalNews) America is rapidly devolving into the oppressive police state we’ve been warning readers about. Right now, cops are exhibiting thuggish, out-of-control “mafia” behavior as they run loose across America, terrorizing innocent citizens, shooting up the vehicles of people who are merely driving cars on public roadways, taking warrantless blood draws from drivers, shooting pet dogs of people who are merely filming police, raiding farmers at gunpoint over raw milk and terrorizing young women for buying bottled water and cookie dough. All of these are real and happening right now in America. The cause behind them? Police are being...

Beer ad dumps God from Declaration of Independence

A top beer-making company has deliberately omitted God from its new ad citing the Declaration of Independence – and now outraged Americans are vowing to boycott the beer brand on the company’s Facebook page. In Samuel Adams’ July 4 commercial, a bartender asks, “Why name a beer after Samuel Adams?” He adds, “Because Samuel Adams signed the Declaration of Independence. He believed there was a better way to live.” Then the man recites the Declaration of Independence – but he omits “endowed by their Creator” from the segment. “All men are created equal,” he states. “They are endowed with...

Never-Aired ‘Apprentice’ Parody of Trump Firing Obama

Breitbart News has obtained the full video of Donald Trump performing an Apprentice-style career evaluation of President Barack Obama during the 2012 election. Trump made the video, which his political operatives (who provided the video to Breitbart News) say cost $100,000 to produce, for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. It was supposed to air at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa last August. Unexpected bad weather threw the convention off schedule, and the Romney campaign never ended up publishing it, though a clip leaked to NBC News’ Today Show in September. Trump allies say Romney’s top political adviser Stuart Stevens… View Article

Sky Deutschland to broadcast adverts directly into heads

          Passengers leaning their head against the window will “hear” adverts “coming from inside the user’s head”, urging them to download the Sky Go app. The proposal involves using bone conduction technology, which is used in hearing aids, headphones and Google’s Glass headset, to pass sound to the inner ear via vibrations through the skull. A video for the Talking Window campaign released by Sky Deutschland and ad agency BBDO Germany states: “Tired commuters often rest their heads against windows. Suddenly a voice inside their head is talking to them. No one else can hear this… View Article

Commit any felonies lately?

Elizabeth Daly went to jail over a case of bottled water. According to the Charlottesville Daily Progress, shortly after 10 p.m. April 11, the University of Virginia student bought ice cream, cookie dough and a carton of LaCroix sparkling water from the Harris Teeter grocery store at the popular Barracks Road Shopping Center. In the parking lot, a half-dozen men and a woman approached her car, flashing some kind of badges. One jumped on the hood. Another drew a gun. Others started trying to break the windows. Daly understandably panicked. With her roommate in the passenger seat yelling “Go, go,… View Article
