    Some of the first steps are taking place to dismantle the agitprop industry in this country known as 'higher education' and the traditional campus-oriented model of rounding 'em up and indoctrinating them.

    “Salaam alaikum, sister. I see you watched my video. It’s gone viral—crazy! Are you Muslim?” It was ten o’clock on a Friday night in April 2014. I was sitting on my sofa in my one-bedroom Parisian apartment when a terrorist based in Syria contacted me on Facebook. I’d been studying European jihadists in the Islamic State and was interested in understanding what it was that made someone give up everything and brave death for this cause.

    We are asking the question for real-life reasons; not being rhetorical. There is a real 37 year old lady who was born with congenital defects that prevent her from ever driving a motor vehicle. Yet she is highly intelligent, very good with mathematics and logic, writes great poetry, has experience proofreading documents for authors, has fast and accurate typing skills. She has worked as a teacher's aid at the elementary level but housing was provided at the school and she didn't need to drive. Now she is in a rural setting, too far to walk to a job. She would...

    An online campaign to raise money for a US man trying to pay his late wife's medical bills by selling wood on the side of the road has raised almost $20,000 (£16,136) in just three days. Kenneth Smith, 80, spends hours a day standing on the roadside in Mississippi, selling bags of kindling. Last year, he was joined by Helen, his wife of more than 30 years, as they struggled to pay her medical expenses. After she died in October Mr Smith was left to raise the money by himself. Her two-year battle with lung cancer not only took large...

    President Barack Obama’s drive to hand off control of Internet domains to a foreign multi-national operation will give some very unpleasant regimes equal say over the future of online speech and commerce. In fact, they are likely to have much more influence than America, because they will collectively push hard for a more tightly controlled Internet, and they are known for aggressively using political and economic pressure to get what they want.

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — Norway's state church has seen a record fall in membership after making it possible to join and leave the church electronically. The Church of Norway says almost 25,000 members left in August by using a new function on the church's website. Meanwhile, about 1,200 new members joined online. Even though the church has seen a steady decline in membership in recent decades, that's by far the biggest monthly loss in recorded history. By comparison, the church lost 8,588 members in the first seven months of 2016, before the online option was introduced. Still, church officials appear to...

    It seems like the NSA has been HACKED! An unknown hacker or a group of hackers just claimed to have hacked into "Equation Group" -- a cyber-attack group allegedly associated with the United States intelligence organization NSA -- and dumped a bunch of its hacking tools (malware, private exploits, and hacking tools) online. I know, it is really hard to believe, but some cybersecurity experts who have been examining the leak data, exploits and hacking tools, believe it to be legitimate. The files mostly contained installation scripts, configurations for command-and-control (C&C) servers, and exploits allegedly designed to target routers and...

    There's a new hacker on the scene: DCLeaks.com, purportedly fronted by the same Russian hackers who breached the email server of the Democratic National Convention, has posted information on leading American personalities, including American billionaire George Soros. Soros, whose net worth stands at $23 billion according to a Forbes estimate, primarily uses his fortune for world activism. That includes funding pro-BDS organizations such as Mada al-Carmel: Arab Center for Applied Social Research, Adala, the NIF, Women Against Violence, the Mossawa Center, and Molad, which works to raise public support against settlements in Judea and Samaria. DCLeaks posted reports and strategies...
  • Online shopping has created a whole new breed of addicts

    Melissa will do anything to feed her online-shopping addiction — even if that means subsisting off a diet of microwaveable soup. “I’ll eat only ramen in order to shop,” she says. The 34-year-old — who works in sales at Red Wing Heritage, a leather goods brand, and asked that her last name not be used for professional reasons — receives two to three packages a week at her East Village apartment thanks to her daily binges. “I love coming home and there’s a package,” she says. “It’s like there’s a prize at my door.” Americans spent a record $341.7 billion...

    WWhen the Internet’s legions of Hillary hecklers steal away to chat rooms and Facebook pages to vent grievances about Clinton, express revulsion toward Clinton and launch attacks on Clinton, they now may find themselves in a surprising place – confronted by a multimillion dollar super PAC working with Clinton. Hillary Clinton's well-heeled backers have opened a new frontier in digital campaigning, one that seems to have been inspired by some of the Internet's worst instincts. Correct the Record, a super PAC coordinating with Clinton's campaign, is spending some $1 million to find and confront social media users who post unflattering...

    President Obama urged students to open up their digital life to the federal government, if they wanted to be protected by the government, calling the current privacy expectations from Americans unrealistic. “People have a whole new set of privacy expectations that are understandable. They also expect though that since their lives are all digitized, that the digital world is safe, which creates a contradictory demand on government,” he said. Obama discussed the issue during a conversation about the Supreme Court at the University of Chicago, where he used to teach Constitutional law. He pointed out that citizens expected the government...
  • Utah Republicans are holding a first-ever online presidential primary. And it’s not going so well.

    The Utah Republican Party is hosting what is could be the nation's largest online election ever. In addition to hosting a statewide caucus, the party set up an online voting system for any registered voter outside or inside the state. Unfortunately, Utah's digital election night doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as Utah Republicans had hoped. While Utah Republicans headed to their caucus in person on Tuesday evening, anyone who had registered online by March 17 can log on to utah.gop to vote between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. local time and cast their vote. But the Deseret News...

    The White House announced Friday afternoon that it is launching an inter-agency task force to counter the sharp growth in violent extremism in America, according to an announcement. As senior members of the Obama administration's national security team meet with technology leaders in Silicon Valley, the White House’s National Security Council announced that the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security would team up to launch a Countering Violent Extremism Task Force, according to the announcement. The White House background document accompanying the announcement does contain any specific reference to the types of "violent extremism" the administration seeks to counter. The...

    It’s the classic facepalm moment when it comes to liberals trying to push their gun control agenda, especially the one peddled by this current administration. Katie wrote about what we could expect from President Obama’s new executive orders on gun regulations last night, which included provisions that are already law. This morning, the president delivered remarks in the East Room of the White House on his new (ish) policies that included this whopper, which the White House Twitter account disseminated for everyone to mock:

    Massive database exposed to public, major political data managers deny ownershipA misconfigured database has led to the disclosure of 191 million voter records. The database, discovered by researcher Chris Vickery, doesn't seem to have an owner; it's just sitting in the public – waiting to be discovered by anyone who happens to be looking. What's in the database? The database was discovered by researcher Chris Vickery, who shared his findings with Databreaches.net. The two attempted to locate the owner of the database based on the records it housed and other details. However, their attempts didn't pan out, so they came...

    After enjoying nearly three decades of steady growth in its China business, Unilever PLC last year watched sales fall off a cliff. The maker of Dove soap, Lux shampoo and Comfort fabric softener warned in October of a 20% drop in its third-quarter China sales. The next quarter, the company announced another 20% fall. Unilever blamed a slowing Chinese economy and a pullback by shoppers. But a close look at retailing trends in China suggests Unilever was also feeling the pain of the migration of hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers to online shopping. Unilever wasn’t the only Western company...

    A new report into U.S. consumers’ attitude to the collection of personal data has highlighted the disconnect between commercial claims that web users are happy to trade privacy in exchange for ‘benefits’ like discounts. On the contrary, it asserts that a large majority of web users are not at all happy, but rather feel powerless to stop their data being harvested and used by marketers. The report authors’ argue it’s this sense of resignation that is resulting in data tradeoffs taking place — rather than consumers performing careful cost-benefit analysis to weigh up the pros and cons of giving up...
