College Students Call Out NSA Recruiters as Professional Liars

NSAStudents Question #NSA Recruiters Over Illegal Spying and Lies

from ActivistPost.com:

When NSA recruiters went to the University of Wisconsin earlier this week to pitch language students on working for the agency, they got more than they bargained for.

The informed students turned the question-and-answer session into a hearing. On trial were the NSA’s lies, their legality, and how they define “adversary”.

The students recorded audio of the exchange on an iPhone proving that the language-analyst NSA recruiters were left tongue-tied.

“I’m surprised that for language analysts you’re incredibly imprecise with your language,” grad student Madiha Tahir charged when they failed to define what constitutes an adversary.

“What you’re selling us is untrue” she added. “We also know that the NSA took down brochures and fact sheets after the Snowden revelations because those fact sheets had severe inaccuracies and untruths in them — so how are we supposed to believe what you’re saying?”

Another student directly challenged the NSA’s morality for using the “globe as their playground” and then partying at the office with co-workers.

Adam Kokesh Arrested Again for “Illegal Use of A Microphone”….


On the Eighteenth of May 2013 Adam Kokesh was giving a speech at “Smoke Down Prohibition V”, which was an event where marijuana users gather across from Independence Hall  in Philadelphia, PA to consume marijuana in an act of civil disobedience. This is the fifth such event  and at all of the four prior smoke downs individuals gathered peacefully, consumed large quantities of marijuana, and were not disturbed by the police. This event would be much different, as the police chose to escalate the situation by violently assaulting multiple individuals and even resulting to kidnapping two of the event’s speakers. Adam Kokesh was giving the final speech to the crowd and before you could properly finish a Parks Police and Fish and Wildlife officer grabbed Adam (who had yet to engage in cannabis reflection that day) and took him while with the microphone still in his hand. Adam was taken away to a local Philadelphia jail and then was moved to Federal Detention Center Philadelphia where he would spend right under a week locked in a cage for not committing a crime.… Read the rest

Are You an Internet Kook? Quite Possibly.

Via The Daily Dot.

You’re probably an “internet kook”. Heck, we all probably are, at least according to a list created by Dale Jensen. Jensen claims to have identified eight signs that may indicate that a writer is an “internet kook”. While I have the sneaking suspicion that the purpose of such lists is to make it easier to dismiss troubling ideas wholesale as the work of a “kook”, I’m sure that there will be others who disagree with me. And you know what? They’re kooks. I can tell by looking at this list…

1) “Don’t believe me? Do your own research.”

According to Jensen this is such a telltale phrase that it’s the first item on his list for identifying when someone is over-invested and using a sensible directive to justify irrational beliefs. It’s especially likely, Jensen says, if they repeat the phrase or apply it to a subject for which research is impossible, like the existence of God.
