Cops mark protesters with invisible ink (VIDEO)

Cops can "brand" protesters with invisible ink like the Nazis branded the Jews during Hitler's time (VIDEO)

Several Occupy Montreal protesters were marked by invisible ink on their hands by cops. 

Other police departments in the US are using ink to mark property, but what happens when inking property, turns to inking people- as it did for the protesters in Montreal? 

When cops can mark citizens in protests with invisible ink, what else can they use?

Introduced to the police market a "DNA gun"-- featured in the Las Vegas "shot show" this year, a DNA gun that leaves an invisible trace on skin.

NSA's XKeyscore Collects Everything User Does On Internet - EXCLUSIVE REPORT (VIDEO)

Edward Snowden revealed the details on the NSA's most expansive surveillance program known as "XKeyscore." (VIDEO)

The XKeyscore documents say the program is the NSA's "widest reaching" system developing intelligence from computer networks.

National Security Agency documents provided to The Guardian by Edward Snowden reveal a system that allows analysts to search "nearly everything a typical user does on the internet," according to one document.

Glenn Greenwald reports that training materials for a program called XKeyscore show how analysts — without the review of a court or other NSA personnel — can mine extensive agency databases by giving only a broad justification for the search.

"It's very rare to be questioned on our searches," Snowden told the Guardian in June, "and even when we are, it's usually along the lines of: 'let's bulk up the justification.'"

From Greenwald:

XKeyscore provides the technological capability, if not the legal authority, to target even US persons for extensive electronic surveillance without a warrant provided that some identifying information, such as their email or IP address, is known to the analyst.

Furthermore, Greenwald reports that analysts can use XKeyscore and other NSA systems "to obtain ongoing 'real-time' interception of an individual's internet activity."

This would be akin to the NSA's assertion, as stated in 2000, that the "NSA must 'live on the network'" to "perform both its offensive and defensive mission."

The Guardian has published the NSA training slides from the program, whcih are from 2008. One shows how XKeyscore constantly collects digital activity and that an analyst can search the metadata as well as the content of emails, social media use, internet browsing activity, and more.

Pope Francis: 'Who Am I to Judge' Gays? (VIDEO)

Is the Pope trying to please the majority of the Vatican's priests who are gay by saying : 'Who Am I to Judge' Gays?  (VIDEO)

"As they settled into their seats on the Alitalia jet, the assembled members of the Vatican press corps might not have expected a great deal from the journey home.

They had just followed the Catholic church's first Latin American pope on a meet and greet around Brazil."*

Is Pope Francis shedding new hope on the Catholic church? In a distinctly tolerant tone, the pope said, "Who am I to judge?" adding that the Church should not marginalize people based on integration. Will the religious-right now go against the pope? Cenk Uygur discusses.


Special Report : Gay Roman Clergy 6/27/13 - homosexual prostitution ring and Satanic groups

Details are now coming out that one of the recruiters for the ring .. a former Rome policeman .. was also involved in stealing consecrated hosts and selling them to Satanists in and around Rome. 



98% of Rome’s Priests Are Gay

Panorama, a magazine owned by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, has just published an exposé on the secret lives of Rome’s gay priests.

They’re not sitting home saying the rosary. Nor are they molesting children, as one might think, given how the Vatican has tried its best to push its ongoing sex with kids scandal onto the backs of gay priests.
Instead, these priests are enjoying the gay night life that the city offers -- visiting bars and having consensual sex with other adults.

"A detailed analysis on Maplight of the voting in last week's vote on de-funding NSA dragnet spying found that the Congresscritters who voted in favor of more NSA spying received more than double the defense industry campaign contributions of their anti-NSA-voting rivals. They were the winners in the industry's $13M donation bonanza leading up to the 2012 elections."*

Why didn't more of our elected officials vote for the "Amash Amendment" to defund NSA mass spying on American citizens? The idea seems novel and agreeable enough, so why did the amendment fail? The answer is easy, when you see which politicians received the most money from corporations who will profit off NSA spying. Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Is 'America's Scariest Police Chief' Also the Dumbest? (VIDEO)

"A Pennsylvania police chief who made international news after posting profanity- and gunfire-filled videos to YouTube says he is now "under attack."

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), told "libtards" they "take it in the *ss," talked about shooting a "libtard out of a tree," and later offered a faux apology filled with F-bombs and automatic gunfire."*

Police in Louisiana Use Unconstitutional Law to Target & Arrest Gay Men (VIDEO)

Cops arrest gay men for attempting to have sex and then must release them as they can't bring charges - and do it again and again (VIDEO)

"According to an investigative report from the Baton Rouge Advocate, there have been a dozen cases since 2011 in which undercover police officers in Louisiana have propositioned gay men for sex — agreeing to have sex in private, and without money changing hands — only to arrest them under the state's anti-sodomy law, which was invalidated more than a decade ago by a Supreme Court ruling."*

Police in Louisiana are wasting time and money by performing stings to arrest gay men based on a law struck down by the courts as invalid. Why are officers continuing to arrest gay men who agree to consensual, perfectly legal sex? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss.

Rush Limbaugh may be losing 40 stations -  advertisers feel he is losing them money (VIDEO)

"Politico reports that Cumulus Media plans on dropping Rush Limbaugh's show at the end of the year.

Cumulus has reportedly decided not to renew Sean Hannity's contract either.

Cumulus carries Limbaugh and Hannity's shows on more than 40 of its stations, including Limbaugh's longtime flagship WABC in New York as well as stations in big markets like Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Dallas."*

Advertisers are quick to deny any link to Rush Limbaugh's radio program, and it's very difficult for him to actually prove his alleged audience numbers. That said, Cumulus Media is said to be dropping Rush (and Sean Hannity) sooner than he might think. Where could Rush be going, and what reprehensible behavior got him there?

Worst Interview Ever?! Fox News Embarrassed (VIDEO)

"It's got plenty of competition but this may just be the single most cringe-worthy, embarrassing interview on Fox News. At least in recent memory. Fox News anchor Lauren Green had religious scholar Reza Aslan on her show Friday to talk about Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, his book that has been stirring up some online controversy recently. And right off the bat, Green gets to what is important: "You're a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity?" Aslan seemed a little flabbergasted: "Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament, and fluency in biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also just happens to be a Muslim."*

Reza Aslan is a religious scholar and author of "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth." He is also Muslim. This blew the minds of Fox News, including host Lauren Green, who quite possibly gave the most embarrassing, insipid interview in Fox News history. Can a non-Christian possibly be interested in Jesus? Is there any attempt to hide Fox News' agenda? How many times can an anchor phrase the same question again and again?! Cenk Uygur breaks down this ridiculous interview.

Mike Zullo on The 100% Forged Obama Birth Certificate (VIDEO)

The dispute over Barack Obama's eligibility captured the imagination of the American public with stunning revelations, lawsuits, a best-selling book and, finally, the release of what was described as the "original" birth certificate from Hawaii in an attempt to silence the doubters.

Since that time, it's been mostly Obama's defenders gloating and deriding anyone who questions the official narrative as so-called "birthers."

That might change soon, according to the lead investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse in Arizona, which was assigned to do a thorough investigation of the document posted by the White House as Obama's birth certification.

Lt. Mike Zullo told WND there is interest being expressed in Congress about the investigation's conclusion that the White House document is fraudulent -- an image created on a computer.

A contingent of citizens in Maricopa County had asked Arpaio to look into the issue because they were concerned an ineligible candidate would be on their 2012 presidential election ballot.

Zullo previously has contributed evidence to a court case -- now pending before the state Supreme Court in Alabama -- on the dispute. He has testified that the White House computer image of Obama's birth certificate contains anomalies that are unexplainable unless the document had been fabricated piecemeal by human intervention, rather than being copied from a genuine paper document.
