Everyone We Have A Problem With Helped North Korea Hack Sony!

Convenient.

China may have helped North Korea carry out the hacking attack on Sony Pictures, a US official has told Reuters.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the conclusion of the US investigation was to be announced later by federal authorities.

The Chinese embassy in Washington later stated that China does not support “cyber illegalities”.

There were also reports on Friday that Iran and Russia may have also helped the North Korean hackers.

The software used in the hacking was at a level of sophistication not previously seen in past North Korean attacks, a US intelligence source told Fox News, adding that China, Iran and Russia had all used the technology previously.

The hackers who launched a cyberattack on Sony Pictures praised the company’s decision to cancel the release of The Interview on Friday and said its data will be secure if they continue to comply, CNN reported.

“It’s very wise that you have made a decision to cancel the release of ‘The Interview,'” the message said, according to CNN. “We ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble.”

Meanwhile, George Clooney started a petition calling for The Interview to be released immediately online, saying “we cannot be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all —-ing people”.

The Hollywood star said it was “insane” that North Korea has been allowed to “dictate content”.

“We should be in the position right now of going on offence with this,” Clooney told the Deadline on Thursday.

“I just talked to Amy (Pascal, Sony Pictures co-chair) an hour ago. She wants to put that movie out. What do I do? My partner Grant Heslov and I had the conversation with her this morning. … Stick it online. Do whatever you can to get this movie out […]

Coming Soon? A Federal Police Czar?

From everyone’s least-favorite “reverend”… I’ve been telling you that there is an ulterior motive driving this “anti-cop agenda”. The progressives are trying to consolidate federal authority. I saw it when I was a cop. In exchange for grants of money or gear, the .gov demanded subservience from the locals. As the rise of the “warrior cop” progressed, the level of control by the feds increased. There were training requirements for nationalization by DHS during “emergency”.

It is possible – as I prove day-in and day-out – to support good policing and still call out the scumbags. Joining in the rallying cry to subjugate the local police to the feds, is moving us in a very dangerous direction.

We need federal intervention without delay,” declared the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, in his December 8 column for the online Huffington Post. Capitalizing on the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and other black men to centralize police powers[…]

“Congress must immediately start hearings to deal with laws that will change the jurisdiction threshold for federal cases and policing,” Sharpton insists. “The executive branch has addressed this most pressing issue, and now it’s time the legislative branch do the same.”

“When local prosecutors fail to conduct a fair grand-jury investigation at the state level, as happened in Ferguson and Staten Island recently,” says Sharpton “the threshold is so high for the federal government to be able to take over the case. That must change…. And in order for federal authorities to step in, we must reform current laws.”

What about the U.S. Constitution, the supreme law of the land, which restricts federal involvement in criminal and policing matters to a very narrow area of jurisdiction? Rev. Al cannot be troubled with such trivialities. “The state has already proven that it cannot do the job,” he insists.

On December 13, thousands of protesters joined Sharpton’s March on Washington, and tens of thousands more engaged in similar protests in New York City, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and dozens of other cities.

This past August the Congressional Black Caucus wrote a letter to President Obama insisting, “The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices.” Even more ominously, the radical Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) demanded the appointment of a national police “Czar.” The CBC letter, which was signed by dozens of celebrities, activists, and academics, demanded:

The Administration must appoint a federal Czar, housed in the U.S. Department of Justice, who is specifically tasked with promoting the professionalization of local law enforcement, monitoring egregious law enforcement activities, and adjudicating suspicious actions of local law enforcement agencies that receive federal funding.

In an ironic twist, the CBC letter validly notes that “the militarization of police departments across the country is creating conditions that will further erode the trust that should exist between residents and the police who serve them. The proliferation of machine guns, silencers, armored vehicles and aircraft, and camouflage in local law enforcement units does not bode well for police-community relations, the future of our cities, or our country.” This has been the cry, as well, of many other liberal-left activists decrying the alleged “systemic racism” in American society, and especially in our local police departments.

Did U.S. Soldiers Rape Iraqi Boys?

If this is true, these people (every single person who knew about it and covered it up – all the way up the chain-of-command) needs to be tried, convicted, and imprisoned for the rest of eternity.

WARNING: WHAT IS BELOW IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

In the most revealing portion of his speech he said that:

“Debating about it, ummm … Some of the worst things that happened you don’t know about, okay? Videos, um, there are women there. Some of you may have read that they were passing letters out, communications out to their men. This is at Abu Ghraib …

The women were passing messages out saying ‘Please come and kill me, because of what’s happened’ and basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children in cases that have been recorded. The boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has. They are in total terror. It’s going to come out.”

Kicking ISIS, Taking Names

Our men on the ground are kicking ass again.

Shafaq News / An American force has fought its actual first battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria “ISIS” organization during a counter-attack that was carried out by tribal forces and other force of the Iraqi army near Ein al-Asad base, west of Anbar, in an attempt to remove them from the base of which includes about 100 US adviser in it.

A field commander of the Iraqi Army in Anbar province, said that “the US force equipped with light and medium weapons, supported by fighter force model” F-18 “, was able to inflict casualties against fighters of ISIS organization, and forced them to retreat from the al-Dolab area, which lies 10 kilometers from Ain al-Assad base .

In an interview with Al Jazeera, a clearly bewildered ISIS Commander Wahd Dafuq had this to say: “It seems as though the American infidels came to fight. They were half asleep and repelled our assault in their underwear. No matter though, we will still kill them all – taking for slaves, their women and having our way with their camels.”

Sony Hackers Threaten 9/11 Style Attack

Taking bets… genuine threat or self-aggrandizing blowhards?

Warning

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

More to come…

Sony Pictures pulled the film. Pussies. :)

Cops Are Individuals. Departments Are Independent.

A cop friend of mine – and long time Revo reader – commented yesterday that he doesn’t come here much any more because there’s just too much cop-hating. I try to keep it in balance. I defend them when necessary and support burning them when necessary.

I believe in intellectual integrity.

We are seeing more instances of police abuse in this country. It may be happening more, we may just be seeing it more. I don’t know the numbers on it. I support the police wearing body cameras and the RIGHT of all people to film or record all public officials when acting in an official capacity.

Progressives have set their sights on destabilizing this country. One of the avenues they have chosen, is the exploitation of police brutality, to diminish the public trust in government. It’s working. I often find myself weary of defending the police (when they are justified in their actions), because it’s just so frequent.

Cops who abuse people or otherwise act outside of the sacred trust placed in them cause discredit upon every other person who wears a badge. Curiously though – this phenomena is absent in the reverse scenario. Why do you think that is? If we are to say – because Cop A abused Person B – that Cop C is a pig, why don’t we say that Cop A helped Person B, so Cop C is good? I’ll tell you why, because that is fucking retarded.

One individual making a stupid decision reflects discredit upon that individual. One incident is judged – by the law – on the merits of that incident. Now, take this to the court of “public opinion” – generally without any context whatever – and suddenly, everyone behind a badge is guilty. Why does this happen?

Each department in this country operates as an independent entity. The occurrence of abuse in Boston, no more reflects the actions of Bainbridge Island, Washington than does the saving of a life in Tacoma. I’m sick to death of people using isolated (though seemingly more frequent) incidents to tarnish the good work done by police officers during millions of peaceful interactions with the public, EVERY SINGLE DAY.

People bitch & moan about how cops are all manner of negative things, but rarely point to the good. The more we marginalize the good work accomplished – day in and day out – by our men in blue, the more we drive good men from the profession and attract the fuckheads who want to exert power over others.

Individual incidents should be harshly dealt with. Department policies need to be reviewed and rewritten. Unions prevent much of the needed reforms. Public unions should not be allowed to exist. Civilian oversight is needed in many places – not to act as a Monday morning quarterback and parse each action of every officer – but to insure that patterns are corrected when they emerge.

Things have got to change. The police need to kept in check, but the public – YOU – have a responsibility in this equation, too. If you are willing to condemn the guilty, be man enough to stand up for the innocent. If you speak out against injustice, speak out in support of honor, courage, commitment, sacrifice, and integrity as well.

Obama’s Immigration Action Ruled “Unconstitutional”

Via Lawrence Hurley at Reuters 

President Barack Obama’s new plan to ease the threat of deportation for 4.7 million undocumented immigrants violates the U.S. Constitution, a federal judge found on Tuesday, handing down the first legal ruling against the plan.

The ruling has no immediate impact, with the government saying there was no reason for Judge Arthur Schwab of the Western District of Pennsylvania to address the issue in the case, which concerns 42-year-old Honduran immigrant Elionardo Juarez-Escobar.

Schwab is the first judge to rule on the legality of the plan Obama announced on Nov. 20. The executive action by the Democratic president is opposed by Republicans and is already subject to other legal challenges.

Schwab ruled that the executive action violated the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of separation of powers and the separate “take care clause,” which requires the president to faithfully execute laws passed by Congress.

Schwab says he ruled on the executive action issue because he concluded that Juarez-Escobar could be eligible for relief under the executive action.

We Don’t Have Enough Real Problems In This Country

It’s a shame… but I’m probably not gonna offer the reason that others think it’s a shame.

It’s been nearly a week since [little boy* ~nota], 12, a bright-eyed California boy who was passionate about cheerleading and fashion, committed suicide, following years of being bullied. And in the time since his death, social media has exploded with post-mortem sorrow, outrage, and several tributes […]“Why do people only start paying attention when it’s too late?”

It’s a worthy question, especially considering the relentless nature of the bullying [little boy*] reportedly experienced — as well as news of other recent suicides apparently connected with bullying, such as that of 13-year-old [little boy*] of Texas, who had been targeted by his peers since second grade before taking his own life in October.

I find it disheartening that we have children killing themselves because they are not being properly prepared for life. Our children are being failed by our education system, our effete pop-culture, by progressives who encourage the sexualization of toddlers, and by parents who are not involved in their children’s lives, to the extent that this could happen.

We are raising an entire generation of pussillanimous, whiny, over-protected, self-important, f-kheads and it needs to stop if we are to continue as a nation.

Sure, my words are ruthless. They are likely very painful to some, but the truth is often thus. How can someone raise a 12 year old, male, cheerleading fashionista and not know that they are being picked on (to the extent that taking their own life is a better option than living)? Why are we not teaching our children to be strong?

Is this really a better alternative – to raise a bunch of whiny, self-victimizing bitches who fancy themselves the center of the universe? I got my ass kicked – at home – and in school. I got picked on by my brothers and by other kids. When other kids did it, I punched them in the face. It resulted in me being hurt, but so did getting picked on.

I despise bullies with every fiber of my being, so don’t think that I’m supporting such behavior. I am not.

What I am saying is that the progressive solution to bullying is anathema to raising children of strong mind, body, and character. Bullying made me stronger, but that’s because I didn’t cry about it and run away, like our schools tell your children to. I stood up… for myself and others. I was just as afraid as everyone else who has ever been bullied, but fear doesn’t stop the bullshit. Sometimes, violence is the answer. When? That depends upon the question.

Our children are being overwhelmed by attempts to sexualize them. My 14 year old is apparently a “pan-sexual”. What the f-ck is a “pan-sexual”? Really? Anyone?

The cultural revolution is destroying our society at an ALARMING rate. It’s one hit after another. They are winning. Are you doing your part to preserve the best of who we were? I am trying to. My family is in church multiple times a week (services, then youth group). We work together. We play together. We eat dinner together – every night.

We use the opportunity to discuss the topics of the day. There is no subject which is off limits. The rules are simple:

If you have a position, you must be able to articulate that position and defend it.

All positions and their defense must meet my standard for logic. If they are unreasonable, you will need to review and refine your position.

Intellectual laziness is absolutely, unequivocally, unacceptable – and will not be tolerated. If that’s the way you want it, keep it to yourself.

No arguing.

Basic decorum is required. (No foul language or conversation that’s inappropriate for the dinner table – discussion of body functions, zombie gore, etc.)

The scene is not a formal debate or mental sparring match. We just have open, frank discussions. Occasionally, a topic will be sidelined because my 9 year old son and 11 year old daughter need to wait until they’re in or through puberty to discuss such things. My kids are home-schooled, now. Our society has simply become too obsessed with progressive ideals for our liking (we are currently deployed behind enemy lines in a progressive hothouse).

I contend that progressive ideals have created protected special classes – the examples from which have encouraged our youth to make choices which allow them to be victims. The disaffected youth of our society are so because we have made their training into adulthood into a self-aggrandized celebration of “me”.

We have set a standard – a bar so low – that they have chosen to meet the absolute minimum, “just get by”. The moment things get tough we coddle them and shower them in praises. We beg them to like us and be friends with us, when what they need from us is to be parents. To set goals. To set limits. To make demands. To make them into adults.

Sometimes, they just need to be told the damned truth. You are not special. You have done nothing to distinguish yourself. When you do, you will get the trophy. Until then, suck it up, try harder, and make yourself better.

Stop celebrating mediocrity. Stop celebrating underachievement. Stop letting your kids be victims. Make them survivors. You know where they don’t have these problems? Third-world countries.

You know why? Because they have real problems.

Towelban Kills 126 Kids: How Long Before It Comes Here?

USA TODAY

Taliban gunmen stormed a school in Pakistan on Tuesday, killing at least 126 people, mostly children, that country’s government said.

Hours after the attack, it was still not clear if hostages were being held or whether the militants were killed by Pakistan’s military.

The attack began in the early morning, with the gunmen entering the school — a military-run facility in the northwestern city of Peshawar with students in grades 1-10 — and shooting at random, said police officer Javed Khan. Army commandos quickly arrived at the scene and exchanged fire with the gunmen, he said.

Mushtaq Ghani, the province’s information minister, said most of the dead were students, children and teenagers.

Bahramand Khan, director of information for the regional Chief Minister’s Secretariat, said 122 people were wounded, Reuters reported.

Taliban spokesman Mohammed Khurasani claimed responsibility for the attack in a phone call to media, saying that six suicide bombers carried out the attack in revenge for the killings of Taliban members at the hands of Pakistani authorities. The army said five militants were killed, according to Reuters.

How long before this horror ends up on our doorstep? Beslan, Pakistan, it’s just a matter of time.

When Security Trumps Liberty: The Republic Will Fall

Judge says that the public has no right to know about the frequency of use of this invasive technology because it might teach people how to avoid it. Our open society is slowly being closed down. One day, we’ll awake to find ourselves shackled to an all-pervasive surveillance state, and question how we got there. This is one of the many tributary paths.

A local judge in Arizona ruled Friday that the Tucson Police Department (TPD) does not have to disclose records related to the use of stingrays, also known as cell-site simulators, under the state’s public records act.

“What statutory authority permits the use of this surveillance technology?”

According to a Saturday report from Capitol Media Services, a state news wire, complying with reporter Beau Hodai’s public records request “would give criminals a road map for how to defeat the device, which is used not only by Tucson but other local and national police agencies.” Hodai sued the TPD and the City of Tucson in March 2014 to force them to hand over such records.

The devices are often used covertly by local and federal law enforcement to locate target cellphones and their respective owners. However, stingrays also sweep up cell data of innocent people nearby who have no idea that such collection is taking place. Stingrays can be used to intercept voice calls and text messages as well.

Senators are finally beginning to question the statutory authority of such surveillance technology:

And just last month, local prosecutors in a Baltimore robbery case even dropped key evidence that stemmed from stingray use rather than allow a detective to fully disclose how the device was used.

As the senators write:

We would like to know if your departments, or its components, utilize these devices along the borders and in our states. Accordingly, we request the following information:

1. To what extent does your department use lMSI-catchers (Stingrays, DRTboxes, etc.) or other similar technology? Specifically:

a. Which components within your department use such devices? If multiple components use such devices, is there department-wide guidance governing their use?

b. Since [fiscal year] 2010, how many times has such technology been deployed, and how many phones were identified or tracked by this technology, including devices used by the targets of the operation as well as non-targets whose information was incidentally
swept up?

c. In what types of operations are these devices deployed? What statutory authority permits the use of this surveillance technology?

e. Do [the Department of Homeland Security] and/or [Department of Justice] obtain a court order prior to using such devices? If so, do DHS and/or DOJ inform the courts of the number of individuals likely to be impacted; the scope of acquisition; or the specific technology being deployed?

Using Social Media To Identify Pre-Crime

New World Systems  offers software that allows dispatchers to enter in a person’s name to see if they’ve had contact with the police before.  Provided crime data, PredPol claims that  its software “forecasts highest risk times and places for future crimes.” These and other technologies are supplanting and enhancing traditional police work.

Public safety organizations, using DHS funding, are set to begin building a $7-billion nationwide first-responder wireless spying network, called FirstNet.

FirstNet is a giant surveillance network. For more info. about FirstNet, read my story from March 2014 “FirstNet America’s national ‘First Responder’ surveillance & spying network“.

Beware, has been sold to police departments since 2012 by a private company, Intrado. This mobile application crawls over billions of records in commercial and public databases for law enforcement needs. The application “mines criminal records, Internet chatter and other data to churn out … profiles in real time,” according to one article in an Illinois newspaper.

Here’s how the company describes it on their website:

Accessed through any browser (fixed or mobile) on any Internet-enabled device including tablets, smartphones, laptop and desktop computers, Beware® from Intrado searches, sorts and scores billions of commercial records in a matter of seconds-alerting responders to potentially deadly and dangerous situations while en route to, or at the location of a call.

Crunching all the database information in a matter of seconds, the Beware algorithm then assigns a score and “threat rating” to a person — green, yellow or red. It sends that rating to a requesting officer.

I have nothing to add. I just want folks to know that their online proclivities are being used against them. You’re giving the enemy everything they need to know about you.

Must Read: The Green Berets Of Progressivism In “Amerikkka”

Today, I’m going to give you a more in-depth introduction to the Revolutionary Communist Party. You may know them already from the recent civil unrest in places like Ferguson, New York, Chicago, Seattle, etc…

  • Maoist group formed in 1974 as an offshoot of the Progressive Labor Party
  • Seeks the violent destruction of America’s capitalist economic system
  • Called for the assassination of President Reagan in 1984
  • Was a key instigator of the 1992 Los Angeles race riots

The Revolutionary Communist Party started as the “Progressive Labor Movement” and later became the “Progressive Labor Party” (Soros Funded) and joined forces with the Students for a Democratic Society (Soros funded). The PLP wanted their members to fit in, so they could encourage subterfuge, as opposed to SDS and their radically overt tendencies. This rift caused PLP to try to take over SDS. Resistance to PLP tactics caused a Maoist splinter, creating the Revolutionary Youth Movement, which then split in two, forming the Weathermen (Bill Ayers Weather Underground) and what would become the Revolutionary Communist Party (1974).

Congress Gives Executive Branch Legal Authorization To Spy On Americans

If you had any doubts that the RINO party was in bed with the President, they should end now. The words below are directly from one of my favorite congressman, Justin Amash (L-MI) (R-MI):

When I learned that the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 2015 was being rushed to the floor for a vote—with little debate and only a voice vote expected (i.e., simply declared “passed” with almost nobody in the room)—I asked my legislative staff to quickly review the bill for unusual language. What they discovered is one of the most egregious sections of law I’ve encountered during my time as a representative:It grants the executive branch virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American.

On Wednesday afternoon, I went to the House floor to demand a roll call vote on the bill so that everyone’s vote would have to be recorded. I also sent the letter below to every representative.

With more time to spread the word, we would have stopped this bill, which passed 325-100. Thanks to the 99 other representatives—44 Republicans and 55 Democrats—who voted to protect our rights and uphold the Constitution. And thanks to my incredibly talented staff.

Block New Spying on U.S. Citizens: Vote “NO” on H.R. 4681

Dear Colleague:

The intelligence reauthorizationbill, which the House will vote on today, contains a troubling new provision that for the first time statutorily authorizes spying on U.S. citizens without legal process.

Last night, the Senate passed an amended version of the intelligence reauthorizationbill with a new Sec. 309—one the House never has considered. Sec. 309 authorizes “the acquisition, retention, and dissemination” of nonpublic communications,including those to and from U.S. persons. The section contemplates that those private communications of Americans, obtained without a court order, may be transferred to domestic law enforcement for criminal investigations.

To be clear, Sec. 309 provides the first statutory authority for the acquisition, retention, and dissemination of U.S. persons’ private communications obtained without legal process such as a court order or a subpoena. The administration currently may conduct such surveillance under a claim of executive authority, such as E.O. 12333. However, Congress never has approved of using executive authority in that way to capture and use Americans’ private telephone records, electronic communications,or cloud data.

Supporters of Sec. 309 claim that the provision actually reins in the executive branch’s power to retain Americans’ private communications.It is true that Sec. 309 includes exceedingly weak limits on the executive’s retention of Americans’ communications.With many exceptions, the provision requires the executive to dispose of Americans’ communications within five years of acquiring them—although, as HPSCI admits, the executive branch already follows procedures along these lines.

In exchange for the data retention requirements that the executive already follows, Sec. 309 provides a novel statutory basis for the executive branch’s capture and use of Americans’ private communications.The Senate inserted the provision into the intelligence reauthorizationbill late last night. That is no way for Congress to address the sensitive, private information of our constituents—especially when we are asked to expand our government’s surveillance powers.

I urge you to join me in voting “no” on H.R. 4681, the intelligence reauthorizationbill, when it comes before the House today.

Justin Amash
Member of Congress

3 Saudis – Dead Body In Trunk – Cop Let’s Em Go

Just imagine if it was a white American who told the cop he had a dead body in the trunk… I’m seeing boots stomping faces, bullets, screaming. Nothing of the sort for Muslims. After all, it is the job of the police to make sure people’s feelings aren’t hurt.

Dead body in the trunk of your car? It’s OK, if you are Muslim.

What would happen to most people if they were pulled over by the police for a traffic offense and in the course of the traffic stop, they announced there was a dead body in the trunk of the car?

At the very least, the police officer would order the driver to open the trunk so the officer could inspect the body. It could be a lot worse than that. Unless you are in Tennessee and you are Muslim.

This happened in Millersville, […] police officer stopped a vehicle on Interstate 65. The driver presented the officer a Saudi Arabian driver’s license. […]

Then the driver told the officer his child was dead in the trunk, and he wanted to go bury the child in accordance with his Muslim religion[…]

The officer asked to see the child and the driver refused because it was “against his religion.” The police officer then let the driver go and reported the event to his superiors.

Unreal.

Navy Goes All “Star Wars” On Moving Targets

Navy on Wednesday announced it successfully tested its first laser weapon aboard the USS Ponce in the Persian Gulf. Testing on the laser weapon system, dubbed LaWS by the Navy, took place from September to November aboard the Austin-class amphibious transport dock. Implementation of the weapon was not only historic, a release from the Navy said, but it also proved such a system could be “operated seamlessly with existing ship defense systems.” “Laser weapons are powerful, affordable and will play a vital role in the future of naval combat operations,” said Rear Adm. Matthew L. Klunder, chief of naval research.

“We ran this particular weapon, a prototype, through some extremely tough paces, and it locked on and destroyed the targets we designated with near-instantaneous lethality.” During the tests, the LaWS struck targets on a small, speeding boat and shot an unmanned aerial vehicle out of the sky.

White House Budget Office Preparing For Shutdown

From the hill… Hell, even Democrats are opposed to this crime-nibus bill. Granted, they are opposed because it doesn’t spend enough of China’s money, but opposed they are.

Congress is taking a series of actions today on legislation that would prevent a lapse in appropriations and allow for continued Government operations. We continue to believe that time remains for Congress to pass full-year appropriations for FY 2015, and prevent a government shutdown,” an OMB official said in a statement.

“However, out of an abundance of caution, we are working with agencies and taking steps to prepare for all contingencies, including a potential lapse in funding.”
While the White House still doesn’t believe a shutdown is likely, the call came as lawmakers looked for the votes to pass a $1.1 trillion spending bill unveiled earlier this week.

While President Obama backed the bill despite provisions that would roll back elements of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill and reduce limits on campaign contributions, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she would not be backing the legislation.

Preparing For The Coming Civil Unrest?

Story

What the hell does “prepare for action” mean and to whom would such a message be directed?

A mixture of human and computer error caused a “Civil Emergency” alert to be sent to thousands of cell phones in Southern Kentucky Tuesday, the Kentucky Emergency Management office said.

There was never an emergency and the alert was sent out during testing at the Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort, spokesman Buddy Rogers said.

According to Rogers, during the testing on Tuesday a computer error, followed by a human error caused the alert to be sent the to people in the Corbin and London areas of Southern Kentucky.

The alert was only sent to cell phones via the Federal Communication Commission’s Wireless Emergency Alert system, Rogers said.

According to the FCC, the Wireless Emergency Alert system is a public safety system that allows customers who own certain wireless phone models and other enabled mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area.

Call Your Representatives And Let Them Know What You Think
