The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday quietly approved a rule change that would allow a federal magistrate judge to issue a search and seizure warrant for any target using anonymity software like Tor to browse the internet.
Absent action by U.S. Congress, the rule change (pdf) will go into effect in December. The FBI would then be able to search computers remotely—even if the bureau doesn’t know where that computer is located—if a user has anonymity software installed on it.
The rule changes, which the FBI said were necessary to combat cyber crime, come amid escalating tensions between the intelligence community and technology and privacy advocates, and just a day after the U.S. House of Representatives advanced a bill that would require the government to obtain a probable cause warrant from a judge before seizing data stored with tech companies such as Facebook, Google, and Dropbox.
“Whatever euphemism the FBI…

The first quote that comes up on this video (below) which is attributed to Hitler, is a reference to what Hitler called the ‘Big Lie,’ he was referring to the use of the ‘Big Lie’ by our enemies. This tactic of using the ‘Big Lie’ is still very prevelant today. We are lied to by the media, politicians and the regressive degenerative left. We are lied to about the so called benefits of mass immigration, we are lied to about the supposed enrichment of ‘diversity,’ we are lied to about the ‘inevitability’ of our non-white future and we are lied to about the wars our nations have been embroiled in. Hitler wasn’t endorsing the use of the ‘Big Lie,’ in fact a high ranking member of his National Socialist Movement said:
“Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the…

“The most striking fact about the story of Rip Van Winkle is not that he slept 20 years, but that he slept through a revolution. While he was peacefully snoring up on the mountain, a great revolution was taking place in the world – indeed, a revolution which would, at points, change the course of history. And Rip Van Winkle knew nothing about it; he was asleep.”—Martin Luther King Jr., Commencement Address for Oberlin College
The world is disintegrating on every front—politically, environmentally, morally—and for the next generation, the future does not look promising. As author Pema Chodron writes in When Things Fall Apart:
When the rivers and air are polluted, when families and nations are at war, when homeless wanderers fill the highways, these are the traditional signs of a dark age.
Those coming of age today will face some of the greatest obstacles ever encountered by young…

The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» and «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad. «By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA…

Score one for the Second Amendment!
From the Seattle Times: The son of an 80-year-old Sultan woman who fatally shot the intruder who stabbed her husband on Thursday evening said he’s proud of his mom and doubts there will be any more intruders.
“They’ll come in, look at her and run the other way,” said the 45-year-old, who asked not to be named out of concern for his family’s privacy after they were victims of the home intrusion.
The woman called Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies to a home around 8:30 p.m. after the fatal shooting. The son, who had gone to sleep early, said law enforcement officers told him and his mother that the 25-year-old man who broke into their home was from Gold Bar and was known to them.
He said the man had been rifling around in his stepfather’s truck and had filled it with…
