Yep lets assassinate American citizens with no due process. He did not hack the NSA and steal their toys. Some other group did, he is just confirming that the tools really did come from the NSA.

He is welcome to have his due process. It's his to collect. Redeemable at any United States Law Enforcement Agency.

So long as he doesn't want his due process, who are we to force it upon him?

He doesn't need to "confirm" or "deny" that the tools came from the NSA - that's irrelevant. What's relevant is the feigned amount of weight that his opinion carries. Snow-snow is irrelevant, yet those that know nothing as to what global damage he has caused and the sheer number of innocent lives that are no longer lived based directly upon his actions...they continue to play him as some high and mighty savior of the people.

Let's play it for what it is - he's an attention ***** born in the pioneering years of generation wuss - now lets get our information verification from somewhere else which is actually relevant.

Commentary below:
NYC eliminates English test for yellow cab drivers
POSTED 4:14 PM, AUGUST 20, 2016, BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — New York City taxi drivers will no longer have to pass an English test under new rules designed to make it easier for immigrants to get behind the wheel of a yellow cab.

The test for a taxi license will be available in several languages under regulations that went into effect Friday.

The change was approved by the City Council in April and signed into law by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The New York Times reports that city officials sought parity with app-based ride services such as Uber, which don’t require an English test.

The city’s taxi drivers have been overwhelmingly foreign-born for decades.

According to the Taxi and Limousine Commission, just 4 percent of current drivers were born in the United States.

I love how the taxi syndicate are blaming Uber for pretty much everything nowadays. News flash: Every single Uber driver I've ridden with so far was clean-cut, spoke flawless English, had a clean, comfortable car which didn't sound like it was about to pull a Bluesmobile-on-the-curb-of-the-Richard-J-Dailey-building move, and seemed to be generally awake and aware of his* surroundings. The same cannot be said for the yellow fleet, and is practically antithetical to the borough cabs (the green fleet.)


* = yes, definitely still a sausage-fest.

Apparently he isn't irrelevant, since you feel compelled to encourage an assassination rather than just ignoring him.

Someone is a bit of a hypocrite don't ya think? You honestly sound like someone who is grossly uneducated yet desperate to push an agenda.

Next time he'll just dump the information into a private server and just wait for Russia to hack it on their own.

BIAS ALERT: NYT columnist calls on Google to 'fix' search results about Clinton's health | Fox News

Amid rampant online speculation about Hillary Clinton's health, one New York Times columnist has a solution – simply get Google to “fix” the search results.

The theories about Clinton’s health, often under the hashtag #HillarysHealth, have been gaining traction on social media in particular.

Democrats have dismissed the claims as a mix of conspiracy theories and misinformation. But now New York Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo has called on Google to step in.

“Google should fix this. It shouldn't give quarter to conspiracy theorists,” he tweeted.

A year ago, Clinton’s doctor said she was in “excellent physical condition.”

But that has not stopped speculation, with some Republicans including Donald Trump weighing in.

Trump said in a speech last week that Clinton “lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS, and all the many adversaries we face.”

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said last week on Fox News, “Go online and put down, ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ and take a look at the videos yourself.”

Clinton’s health first became a matter of scrutiny when she suffered a concussion as secretary of state. Recently, coughing bouts on the campaign trail and pictures of Clinton being helped up stairs by multiple aides have stoked further speculation.

I posted a video a while ago of a press release from Philip Haney. He was a DHS analyst whose work was conveniently deleted. He was another person who was basically told to back off because of pc.

So now we have at least two .gov peeps who have released books on the efforts to downplay Islamic law. (According to Coughlin, is the basis for all things terror related)

There are six videos in that Coughlin series. I plan on watching the rest tonight.
