Uncle Sam seeks to snoop on foreigners’ social media

The United States Customs and Border Protection force wants to add a question to forms that foreign visitors are required to fill in when entering the country, asking for their social media details.

The agency has submitted a proposal for collection of the details and says this will be an optional field on the form.

On arrival in the US, a non-US citizen has to fill out two forms – a non-immigrant visa waiver arrival/departure record (I-94W) and an arrival/departure record (I-94).

The question proposed to be added reads: “Please enter information associated with your online presence — Provider/Platform — Social media identifier.”

This query would also be added to the online form filled in by prospective visitors from countries which have a visa waiver arrangement with the US.The agency said in a notice on the US federal register that it had recently added questions asking applicants about countries they had visited on or after March 1, 2011; countries where they hold citizenship or are nationals and their Global Entry Numbers.

FBI Transcript Shows Nobody Died in Orlando Shooting Until SWAT Teams Entered the Building: Judge Napolitano

Here’s the official transcript.

So, this makes one question why the 911 call transcripts are being redacted and why the people are not being told the truth across the media about what really took place.

We have been told that 5 to 6 police officers were already in the club for 15 to 20 minutes or more prior to the SWAT teams’ entering.

So, what is the truth here?  Some claim that 05:13am is the time of death, but how is that when that suspect was not even down until 05:15am?  Could it be that some of the people in the club were shot by the SWAT team or by Mateen?  With nearly50 people dead and more wounded, how was Mateen able to get off that many shots?  I’m really curious.

Monday, Orlando Police Chief John Mina and other law enforcement officers offered new details about the shooting, including the possibility that some victims may have been killed by officers trying to save them.

“I will say this, that’s all part of the investigation,” Mina said. “But I will say when our SWAT officers, about eight or nine officers, opened fire, the backdrop was a concrete wall, and they were being fired upon.”

A law enforcement source close to the investigation who asked not to be named said a crowd of up to 300 people and the complex layout of the dance club may have resulted in some patrons being struck by gunfire from officers. (emphasis added)

Tom DeLonge says that he quit Blink-182 to investigate UFOs

Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge has said that he quit the band to focus on investigating the apparent threat of UFOs.

DeLonge quit Blink-182 in January 2015, and has since released ‘Sekret Machines’, a book that blends sci-fi elements with real life accounts of purported UFO sightings and alien abductions.

But he now says that UFOs are a ‘national security issue’, and claims that he was unable to combine his investigations with guitar duties in Blink-182.

Push for Clemency for Snowden in Final Days of Obama Presidency

 Edward Snowden‘s lawyer is renewing a push for clemency for the famous NSA whistleblower from the White House before President Barack Obama leaves office in January.

“We’re going to make a very strong case between now and the end of this administration that this is one of those rare cases for which the pardon power exists,”said Ben Wizner, head of the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project and Snowden’s legal advocate.

“It’s not for when somebody didn’t break the law. It’s for when they did and there are extraordinary reasons for not enforcing the law against the person,” Wizner said.

Wizner discussed his plans with the journalist Andrew Rice for a New York Magazine cover story about Snowden. Although Snowden admits that “much of Washington remains hostile to him,” according to Rice’s article, he “is optimistic that he will find a way out, somehow.”

Rice continues:

Maybe some Scandinavian country will offer him asylum. Maybe he can work out some kind of deal—whether outright clemency or a plea bargain—with the Justice Department. Wizner has been working with Plato Cacheris, a well-connected Washington defense attorney, but so far, there have been no official signals that the Justice Department would be willing to offer the kind of lenient terms Snowden would accept. And a window may be closing. He is unlikely to receive a more receptive hearing from Hillary Clinton, who has said he shouldn’t be allowed to return without “facing the music.” As for Donald Trump: He has called Snowden a “total traitor” and suggested he should be executed. “If I’m president,” he predicted last year, “Putin says, ‘Hey, boom—you’re gone.’”
