Tin foil hatters redeemed with latest news about spying on Internet traffic

Tin foil hats now come with a feminine motif. (Photo: The US Report)Tin foil hatters are a favorite punching bag for people who have a hard time believing government will overstep its bounds. Those hatters are probably dancing right now as the latest news breaks about the National Security Agency’s ability to spy on 75 percent of Internet traffic in the U.S.

More Clinton intrigue as offices of State Dept. whistleblower’s attorney burglarized

A screen snip of a letter sent by Rep. Issa, chair of the Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee, about missing data from the Clinton Administration. The statement no longer appears in its original government location; the image is linked to the full statement at the Internet Archive website.No political couple can top former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary when it comes to intrigue.

The latest mystery involves a burglary at the offices of Schulman and Mathias in Dallas.

The firm is representing Aurelia Fedenisn, the whistleblower alleging scandalous improprieties in the Obama Administration, specifically in the State Dept. formerly led by Hillary Clinton:

The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm's file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident.

That’s just the most recent example of disappearing data that may be related to the Clintons.

Mystery about TWA Flight 800 rekindled by new film 17 years after crash

Photo: EPIXThe mystery of TWA Flight 800 has intrigued many of us since the flight crashed on July 17, 1996.To this day, it is difficult to accept the official verdict on what caused the crash.

Initially media and some public officials believed the flight had been bombed. Now a new film by EPIX is rekindling interest in a crash the Clinton administration attributed to a fuel-air explosion.

NSA: Find all you need to know on Twitter and in secret 'Early History'

Photo: Snip/NSAThe latest outrage over domestic espionage is nothing new. A precursor to the National Security Agency sparked controversy in its past and the current agency will likely face it again in the future.

Some of the funniest and most enlightening tidbits of information can be found on Twitter where one individual asked how NSA might monitor the Amish.

The background on how the agency formed—the NSA moniker became official under a Democrat, President Harry Truman—is recounted in a fascinating work by NSA historian George Howe, The Early History of the NSA. The majority of text in that formerly secret work was declassified in 2007.

Waterboarding, rendition, drones and U.S. presidents

Harold Koh, with Obama’s State Dept., said at a 2010 press conference "cruel and inhuman" treatment would not be used "going forward." Not a single media personality has asked Koh or Obama to explain how killing someone is not a painful process. (Photo from U.S. Government)Remember the media fury about waterboarding when President Barack Obama was a junior senator seeking the U.S. presidency?

Rendition was also a hot topic, with most media blaming President George W. Bush for starting the practice of spiriting a suspect off to a foreign country for interrogation.

In the interest of cleaning up the spin, a look at past and current presidents' policy is useful because legacy media completely overlooked the Clinton era.

Preparing for 2016? Democrat filmmaker continues Clintons’ political rehab

Roosevelt enjoyed lack of public scrutiny commonly bestowed on Democrats in Washington.(Photo: Carol M. Highsmith, U.S. Library of Congress)Martin Scorsese will add another dimension to the political rehabilitation of former president Bill Clinton with a new documentary. Personally, I think it’ll be more like a slick piece of propaganda, but I admit I’m jaded anytime Hollywood goes near a president from either political party.

Scorsese told media:

“Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure.”

Transcendent is pretty appropriate, but the context is in the mind of the beholder.

Rep. Cummings should read GAO report—State budget didn’t cause Libya meltdown

Cover of a report from the Government Accountability Office in June, 2012. [Screen snip]During the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee meeting on Wednesday, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) blamed the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya on budget cuts made by Republicans.

Cummings is mistaken or he is deliberately misleading his constituents. Had he taken time to read a report issued by the Government Accountability Office, he might have cast his partisanship aside and recognized a real problem. President Barack Obama apparently missed the report as well.

For Clinton at DNC, it’s a legacy speech; for Crist, search for a political future

Photo: The US Report/KBDPresident Bill Clinton will speak at the Democrats’ national convention in Charlotte, and so will former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

Democrats have probably invested hope in both men for different reasons—Clinton as sage of the party and Crist as disenchanted ex-Republican in search of a political future.

There are potential political hazards for both men should they falter.

What Obama should tell you in the State of the Union Address

When he delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday, there are many things President Barack Obama should tell you.

For starters, Obama did not ‘inherit’ a mess?  He asked for one. Nobody twisted his arm to make him run for president.

President George W.  Bush asked for a mess too.
