Has wikileaks crossed a threshold? Is security leaks endangering and enabling at the same time?

    Hard to know who or what Julian Assange may be trying to help or hurt or what he holds dear. I am not aware of him ever releasing anything that was not true.

    -- Posted by fair share on Wed, Mar 8, 2017, at 2:00 PM
  • Most of what was released was already public knowledge if you look.

    Even light bulbs can be turned into microphones (google passive cavity device).

    If you're using anything connected to the grid, you can be bugged.

    I heard a report that said Julian Assange Hates America. I assume he hates Americans as well.

    However, he has a lot of information that the people didn't know about our untrustworthy Government employees.

    He is just doing what Edward Snowden was doing, whistle blowing. Congress wants to prosecute him as a spy, but then congress is government employees that doesn't want the American people knowing their business.

    They are perverts invading our private lives with their spy devices without telling us. That is illegal, so lets deport them to Mexico.

    If the government ever pulled any of this ill gotten spy crap on you, you should stand on your rights as a sovereign (if you are a sovereign) and make the court throw out all their evidence against you because they infringed on your rights by videoing you without your consent or a warrant. Also the Federal Government only has jurisdiction in Federal Territories or over Federal Citizens and limited Federal crimes. (See Article I, Section 8, US Constitution).

    Your TV, Cellphone and Computer can video you 24/7 without even being turned on. No wounder why God declares the Governments Anti-Christ and coming back to destroy (all) of them and their employees.

    Snowden and Assange are suppose to be the bad guys and liars, but the people are starting to wake up and listen to them. How many other people are telling the truth?

    The Intelligence Agents must be taking lessons from the Liberal Women. They are violating other peoples rights so they can claim more rights for themselves.

    That will never work!

    If the women knew their rights, they wouldn't be asking for more Civil Rights. Civil Rights come from the Government employees. They are only privileges that can be taken away as fast as they were given.

  • Is it productive to inform enemies of our country and way of life how we learn about their activities and plans?

    Another way of looking at that, is it worth me knowing they can bug my TV if they are no longer able to gather intelligence on ISIS?

    You don't have to worry about that Steve. The news media tells the enemy everything we know about them and what we think they are going to do and even what we are going to do about it.

    The news reporters keep asking the people in authority that the people want to know what you are going to do about Isis. What is your plan to defeat Isis? What are you going to do to make America great again? The news reporters don't use any common sense at all. They just want to be the first one to tell the story even if it is wrong.

    Reminds me of he time when we went into Iraq for the first time. It was the first night we went in and what did Geraldo Rivera do? He sat down on the ground and drew a map in the sand to show the world how we were building a dirt road around the Iraq forces and coming in behind them.

    It was broadcast on National TV in real time as it was happening. Geraldo Rivera should have been arrested right then and there and thrown in jail as a spy. It was like no one ever watched that TV news spot. No one ever said anything about it, EVER, except me! Our boots on the ground was making a surprise attack and Geraldo Rivera was drawing it on the ground for a TV Cameraman to put on National TV during the attack. He must be related to Hillary Clinton!

    Bugging your TV is not what you should be concerned about. They are bugging your every move and conversation in the UNprivacy of your own home, Your Castle! Got a TV in your bedroom? Your Man's cave or woman's cave where you might do a few things you wouldn't want anyone to know about?

    Your cellphone could be videoing you without you knowing it talking to someone you should be talking to or listening in on every word you speak without it being turned on, not to mention giving out your location where you can be located.

    I knew the computers and cell phones were rigged but not your TV in your house.

    I know this makes me angry, but you can always get rid of your TV and cell Phone. At least I can, but not my wife. She has to have a phone and TV.

    Then we have the liars!!! We are told all this crap, but the FBI couldn't open the cellphone of the shooters who were terrorists.

    Why do they lie? Either they can or they can not. If they can and they know who these terrorists are, why can't they stop them?

    Here's why! You can't be arrested until you commit the crime, so why do they have to spy on innocent people if they can't do anything until it happens. I would at least think they would be smart enough to have them under Surveillance, but that doesn't seem to be what they do.

    So it comes down to a bunch of perverts who want to spy on regular Americans, just like the TSA can now pat you down at the airports, but don't dare touch a muslim.

    The folks who are interested in this type of information were aware of this already.

    Very little was released in the wikileaks dump that wasn't already public knowledge.

  • Well I guess it is just another coincidence that Trump ally Farge was seen leaving the residence of Assange in London.Emails reveal he has extensive ties with Assange.When asked why he was there he said "I don't remember why I was there".

    Although Trump called jobs report fake during his campaign and said unemployment rate was a hoax,he will take credit for the report.He is still riding on Obamas coattail.Markets and economy was growing steady when he sat down. It's not like he had to turn around a major recession.Remember he said the unemployment rate is over 30%,lets see if he thinks the 4.7% is real now.

    Still no evidence of Obama wiretapping.Trump needs to present evidence or retract his statement.

    Still no evidence Trump is donating his salary and we will never know.

    How can anyone in America trust Trump after the yuge wiretapping lie? If he tells us we are being attacked how will we know if it is true or a joke.He needs to be made to go on TV and tell america he lied.Even Trump supporters can not spin this.

  • A speech like what Trump gave in Nashville last night is what is hyping people up and causing some to be afraid of anyone who does not look like them.Hate crimes have skyrocketed since he took office.People feel they have a president who will stand behind them when they go out and shoot any brown people they fear are muslim.

    He told them last night "I will go back to the white house and my wife will say,the crowd booed you",she is not even living there.They did not even catch that he lies over little things.I can not believe these zombies are still chanting "lock her up".Trump maybe the one locked up when the truth comes out.Did they not remember him saying he was not going to lock her up although he could not anyway.They actually think building a wall will stop undocumented immigrants.The biggest group of undocumented immigrants are asians who over stayed visas and came here by plane,while Mexican immigrants are shrinking.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Thu, Mar 16, 2017, at 11:29 AM
  • So Trumps hero is Mr" Trail of Tears",why am I not surprised.I bet he wishes he had 145 of his own slaves just like Jackson.Trumps attitude toward immigrants and muslims parallels Jacksons toward Native Americans.Jackson removed them from their land and killed thousands creating the Trail of Tears.

    NO evidence found of Trumps wiretapping lie,but he still believes it.Trump is an embarrassment to America.

    Lbr?, I'm somewhat confused by your non-grasp of reality. You should be thrilled at Trump paying tribute to your party's founder. But when you start talking geometry, your grip on reality gets even more tenuous. I know how hard math is for you. Trump's attitude toward illegals and muslim terrorists is perpendicular (not parallel) to Randy Andy's attitude toward the Indians. Andy did remove them from their land and was responsible for thousands of their deaths. On the other hand, the illegals have removed themselves from their own dang land. Trump just wants to put them back where they belong. And the only muslims he wants to kill are the ones trying to kill us. I bet the Indians wish they had protected their borders back in the day. When I consider how much the Mexican government whines and moans about not wanting their citizens back, it makes me think the Mexicans are the real racists.

Trump and his cronies are getting out of hand.As for as other countries Trump has a big credibility problem.We not only have a president who believes conspiracy theories but creates them.Trump will never admit he was wrong.He would send our soldiers to war over a lie before he admit he was wrong about anything.

    Now he is tweeting about North Korea.Obama never tweeted about foreign policy.

    I can honestly agree with your statement "Hate crimes have skyrocketed since he took office", LBR. Every one of those Hate Crimes have been committed by the "LEFT".

    AND . . . All the Brain Dead news media is still talking about the wire tapping of Trump!

    Now we get to watch the Brain Dead Congress question James Comey.

    That will be the most boring session yet. It will comprise of Democrats praising Director Comey for not prosecuting Hillary and the Republicans asking the FBI Director the most stupid questions a person could think of and they will go around the table asking the very same question.

    Not one of them will require a straight answer. They will ask questions that don't even apply to the intelligence reports. We will get to watch the congressmen pick their nose, their ears and dose off. They will ask the same question the one before him asked. It should be a funny show. After you watch it, tell me you don't think they are brain dead. Some may ask a question that is so long they will answer it themselves. They will stick on a subject that doesn't amount to a hill of beans.

    We will get to watch our congress in ACTION?

    When it is all said and done, no one will know anything they didn't know before they asked the questions.

    Meanwhile the stock market is high, jobs are coming back,consumer confidence is high, usless government programs are being cut, and whiny loser liberals are about to bust a gut.

    What's not to like?

  • The stock market,jobs and consumer confidence right now has nothing to do with Trump.Thank you Obama for leaving America in better shape than when you took office.Five weeks is not long enough to be in office to have and effect on anything.Right now Trump is still riding on Obamas coattail.Trump does not believe in the jobs report remember,he said the real unemployment rate is over 40%.

    Records show that Russian elites invested over 100 million in Trump buildings.Trump's words "I have no loans or dealings with Russia".Trump's son even said "we have lots of money coming in from Russia" during the campaign.

    When Trump said everybody will have insurance he lied to America.I want to see him tell the unemployed coal miners in Virginia they will lose insurance,grandma's meals on wheels and school breakfast for hungry school kids.I can not believe his head of budget actually said "There is no proof that feeding a child makes them learn".Where is he getting these people.They are getting all the assistance from the government and they do not care about working class americans.

    Sigh.

    Nothing like having to explain things to an "adult" as if they were a dullard child.

    First let's examine the definition of confidence.

    Definition of confidence

    1

    a : a feeling or consciousness of one's powers or of reliance on one's circumstances

    had perfect confidence in her ability to succeed

    met the risk with brash confidence

    B: faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way

    have confidence in a leader

    It doesn't take too many brain cells to realize confidence is a belief in future performance. So consumer confidence is the belief that future economics will be favorable to the average person.

    Likewise, people invest in the stock market because they think they will make money due to businesses prospering in the future.

    If investors thought Trump was going to crash the economy they'd pull their money out and invest in more stable mediums.

    Republicans are only concerned about who leaked the information and not about what the information showed.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Wed, Mar 22, 2017, at 7:25 AM
  • This is a report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget office,the debt shrinking the last 2 months has nothing to do with Trump taking office.The debt can rise or fall on any given day.The debt is rising more slowly now because economic growth has strengthened and because of policy decisions made during Obama administration.They also said in January the debt would increase by 559 billion in current fiscal year ending in Sept.Like I saaid he is still riding on Obamas coattail.

    Trump said he was not taking a salary which is another lie.He should not take a salary if he continues to spend 3 million a week at his resort for 52 weeks which is around 150 million.His whole family is getting richer off the backs of americans.

  • These negotiations do not happen overnight or in the last 2 months.Ford states this has been in the making since 2015,nothing to do with Trump.Everyone knows these things take many months.

    Trumps order today to legalize pollution is only to put more money in his CEO buddies pockets,he knows nothing will bring back "clean coal jobs".

  • Seems Flynn wants immunity before testifying.Flynn's own words when talking about Hillary's emails "Anyone who wants immunity must have done something wrong".Wouldn't it be ironic if Hillary gets to chant "Lock him up".How long will it take Trump to distance himself from him and throw him under the bus.

  • Where is the proof fair? It is no ones fault but the Trump campaigns that they got caught in routine foreign official interceptance by America.It is not Obamas fault they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar.This still has nothing to do with the big (proven not true) Trump lie that Obama wiretapped Trump tower.Trumps bullying will not work this time.He and his family dynasty's days are numbered in the whitehouse.If any other president gave their inexperienced family members jobs having access to classified information americans would be livid.When did some americans start thinking corruption is acceptable or the norm?

  • And America have always called for investigations but now it is like pulling teeth for congress to get one going.They had no problem with jumping to have one on Clinton,but with Trump anything goes.What is really bad is that some Americans don't want to know what he does and think everyone else should overlook what ever he says and does no matter how bad.

    The idiot left likes to keep saying Putin, Putin, Putin, but can't seem to see him looking back at them when they gaze into the mirror. Not surprising really considering their cloudy vision. Of course Russia meddled in the election just like they have for decades, not only ours but many other countries. But they didn't alter the results, just sewed dissent. And the left swallowed it hook, line and sinker like a good little comrade. If they really wanted to choose our president, they would have done so without leaving breadcrumbs pointing directly to them. But doing it like they did, they win regardless the outcome of the election. Tho I doubt the Right would have been as strongly persistent as the left in resisting and obstructing the Presidency. But don't worry all you snivelers out there, Trump will drag you kicking and thumb-sucking into a great America.

    I don't pretend to know what, if any government business is done on the Florida trips, but playing golf has been a longstanding business tactic in my world for negotiating business deals and developing good business relationships.

    I was never any good at it, which good for my business affairs since I was faking their winning. They could tell it was an honest struggle. :-)

    I tried playing tennis with one client (I really used to play in high school) but he suggested we play something else since I was "hurting" his game. Yes, I was pretty rusty.

  • Keep on spinning,I don't know how much it cost to guard the president in DC but commom sense tells you it is more in Florida.We don't have to pay the coast guard in DC as in Fla.The Secret Service needs 60 million additional more than they spend usually for Trump and his family's security.The city of NY spend $500,000 day to guard Trump Tower and that goes in Trumps pocket.It is costing America a fortune for security for lavish family vacations and business trips for family business.Trump has spent already nearly 20 million in trips in 2 months as compared to Obamas 12 million a year.The same people who complained every time Obama took vacation seem to have no problem with Trumps unnecessary spending.We also have to pay the police and overtime to them in these cities.We also have to pay 1.5 million to rent Trump tower for 2 floors for security that goes straight to atrumps pocket.

  • No I am not believing any lie he tells,America will not be sure until we see his taxes.The $78,000 he is suppose to donate does not even cover 1 day of what it cost to cover the FLOTUS because she refuses to live in the WH or his endless vacations.He probably is trying to force the National Park Service,who he has been feuding with since the inauguration,to lie about his smaller than 2009 crowd size.

    God says if you don't work, you don't eat. Libs say they need a program.

    Fall backwards with you legs in the air for the first (and every) guy who says you're pretty. Libs just kill the baby.

    Sit around all day eating junk and never exercising. Libs want someone else to fund their healthcare.

    Pretty hypocritical to invoke God when you're diametrically opposed to his lessons.

    Once again libs demonstrate not only their ignorance, but also their laziness in not even being willing to do something as simple as a google search to rectify their ignorance.

    Equal pay has been the law since 1963.

    https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/statutes/epa.cfm

    If you know of females in identical positions with identical backgrounds being paid less, it's your duty to report it.

    But as usual lib's laziness will lead them to believe it's someone else's responsibility.

  • I think I'll give $100 to the first democrat who can admit they're lazy and looking for freebies.

    The political parties exist to represent the desires of their constituents. Almost all of the DNCs platforms are based on freebies and/or avoiding responsibility.

    If this wasn't the desire of most democrats, the DNC woukd alter its stance or face losing support.

    Yet every democrat claims to be hardworking and not needing handouts. Yet they also wail like schoolgirls at the mention of eliminating freebies.

    Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

  • Then why does most freebies and handpost go to the red republican states? The democrats care more about the less fortunate poor,the republicans motto is I got mine and I don't care about anyone else less fortunate.Some even have no problem with taking breakfast or lunch from a hungry child at school because they think they don't deserve it. Everyone poor is not lazy and God does not look kindly upon the ones who mistreat them.

    "democrats care more about the less fortunate poor" by lbr?

    Wrong!

    Liberals (dems) want to give the less fortunate handouts. Conservatives (R) want to help them be more fortunate. Kinda like giving a man a fish (eat for a day) vs teaching him to fish (eat forever). If you can even call it love, enabling bad behavior is the worst kind of "love". And I agree with you lbr?, God does not look kindly upon that. But good for you if you give handouts to those who truly need them. I assume you mean a personal donation. That is how I do it. Remember, donation thru taxation is not charity. It is theft. And frequently it is enabling.

    -- Posted by fair share on Thu, Apr 6, 2017, at 7:43 PM
  • If libs were truly just more giving, they wouldn't need a government program for charity nor would they whine about them being canceled.

    They would know that the money they give would do more good for the recipient without government taking their cut.

    I'll ask again, for the 639th time.

    Where is the great democrat success story?

  • Can anyone guess witch president said this,"The president is not busy talking to congress about Syria,he is playing golf,go figure".It was Trump in Sept 2013 in a tweet.I think this was golf trip #16 since Jan 20th.I don't know maybe he had to go play golf this weekend again to calm his nerves after he saw all those "beautiful babies" dying on TV that may be alive if he had not banned them as refugees. One father was holding his dead 1 year old twins that were banned from Syria.That showed how much he really cared for those people.The bombing accomplished nothing and was just a deflection from Russia.

    Lbr?, looks like you are suffering from the common liberal malady of being unable to accurately assign blame and responsibility. Trump is not responsible for those babies deaths. Assad is. But if dead babies is what bothers you, don't worry too much about it because when Trump cuts off funding for planned non-parenthood, he will save way more babies lives than Assad took with the gas. And if that doesn't make you feel better, you should stop trying to fool yourself and everyone else into thinking you really care about the kids.
