I guess we have to get used to it. Privacy is dead! Yahoo’s new privacy policies.

With all of the recent news and headlines about Facebook and all the big tech companies tracking us, sharing our information with little or no options for us to do anything about it. I’ve been thinking why isn’t Yahoo in the news? They certainty should be.

I don’t want government involved in much of anything with the exception of the way the founders originally planned for government involvement in states and our personal lives. But I think there should be some type of legislation that forbids these big tech companies from collecting, storing or sharing our personal info. There should be some way to do it.

The Parkland school shooting post that got Tony Mead banned from Facebook

Before his page was taken down, Mead had published the post, “Investigating the Parkland School Shooting”. This is what Facebook finds to be so threatening that it warrants Facebook resorting to the 21st-century analog of book-burning. Please read and disseminate!

A class action lawsuit against Facebook has been filed with Blood Hurst & O’Reardon LLP in San Diego. To join the lawsuit, call (619) 338-1100.
The only reason Facebook gave Mead for unilaterally and without warning taking down his “Sandy Hook Hoax” page is the vague catch-all “Something you posted doesn’t follow our Community Standards”:

Fellowship of the Minds

Tony Mead is an intrepid Sandy Hook researcher with a Facebook page called “Sandy Hook Hoax“.

Two days ago, on April 8, 2018, Facebook took down his page. In its place, is this message:

Youtube shooter was a refugee from Iran

Interesting, didn’t know that.
Trump Admin doesn’t process as many through Turkey

I’ve reported on the processing countries on several occasions, but it might be instructive to see that as Obama was leaving office, Turkey was one of our top processing centers,Turkey has been demoted as a processing country. I don’t have the inside skinny on what happened.
The mentally ill are admissible as refugees

The other thing you need to know is that we don’t screen for mental illness in the refugee admissions process—we take many nuts!

(Based on this reporting and her age now, she was an adult when admitted to the US.)

Refugee Resettlement Watch

That is what the LA Times is reporting, here.  (Hat tip: Peter)

nasim Attempted murderer Nasim Najafi Aghdam

Surely you’ve seen the story about an animal rights activist shooting human beings a few days ago, but if you haven’t, check out the LA Times.

I only want to make a couple of points.  First here is a tiny snip of the story:

Aghdam entered the country as a refugee roughly two decades ago, a family member said. In one of her videos, she said she was born in Urmia, Iran — where she and other members of her Baha’i faith face discrimination — and that her family had spent a year and a half in Turkey.

Turkey?

Readers need to know that Turkey has been a major processing center for refugees from the Middle East (imagine what fraud could be happening there!) for many years.

Zuckerberg Talks, Facebook’s Problems Even Worse

Something definitely needs to be done to oversee the these big tech companies.
“is his interview with Vox.com, in which Zuckerberg managed to generate a new round of bad press over Facebook’s privacy scandal, talked about having some sort of Supreme Court decide what constitutes “acceptable speech” and how Facebook (FB) hampers independent media outlets. Oh, and he apparently thinks patriotism is arcane.”
“Zuckerberg also talked about how his company “worked directly” with the German government to monitor content before elections there, saying that “if you work with the government in a country, they’ll actually have a fuller understanding of what is going on.”

That prompted the Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman to write: “The idea of Facebook working with governments around the world to filter news is more frightening than almost any commercial use of user data one can imagine.”

From Investor’s Business Daily.

Public Relations: After days of silence in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been talking up a storm. Given the kinds of things he’s been saying, it might be better if he went back to his Silent Zuck routine.

Case in point is his interview with Vox.com, in which Zuckerberg managed to generate a new round of bad press over Facebook’s privacy scandal, talked about having some sort of Supreme Court decide what constitutes “acceptable speech” and how Facebook (FB) hampers independent media outlets. Oh, and he apparently thinks patriotism is arcane.

The latest privacy flap came when Zuckerberg suggested that Facebook scans private messages sent over its Messenger app and blocks those it deems inappropriate.

During the interview, he talked about blocking “sensational messages” that Facebook believed were meant to incite harm. “Our systems detect…

You want to talk about gun violence?

Last night I caught part of Bill OReilly’s weekly Newsmax interview, he talked about a 2016 stat “Homicides In Chicago Eclipse U.S. Death Toll In Afghanistan And Iraq”. I had never heard about that before. I thought how amazing it is that the Mainstream media doesn’t cover that, what a shame.

“Chicago’s murder rate is spiralling out of control. Killings in the Windy City have already surpassed the 500 mark this year, more than New York and Los Angeles combined. The city hasn’t experienced a single day without a homicide since February of last year and the murder rate is at a 20-year high. The majority of the victims are young black men from a small number of neighborhoods in the city.” SEP 8, 2016:Homicides In Chicago Eclipse U.S. Death Toll In Afghanistan And Iraq [Infographic]

“This is a RUSH transcript from “The O’Reilly Factor,” April 21, 2014. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

O’REILLY: “FACTOR Follow-up” segment tonight, death and destruction in Chicago. After the brutal winter there, the spring season has ushered in more violent death.” Death and destruction in Chicago

RAHM EMANUEL does not like the description of Chicago as a tale of two cities. Yet in the last few days the discrepancy between the prosperous, glossy neighbourhoods downtown and on the north side, which are thriving more than ever since Mr Emanuel took over as mayor in 2010, and the poor, violent south of the city was highlighted once more. First came the good news with predictions that the Windy City is on track this year to break its own record of 54m annual tourist visits—up from 39m in 2010. Then on September 25th followed grim reading: the publication of the annual crime statistics of the FBI showed Chicago’s murder rate is again one of the highest in the country.”  Sep 26th 2017:Chicago accounted for 22% of a nationwide increase in murders last year

From my site, News and Headlines

“The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

The city’s public school system is a disaster. Last year, some of the schools had zero students who were proficient in math.” What’s causing Baltimore’s population loss? It’s no mystery

“This week on Bill’s weekly Newsmax interview, Bill reflects on the March for Our Lives that took place over the weekend and explains the manipulation that is occurring. Stormy Daniels interviewed with ‘60 minutes’, most people are saying that the interview has dropped flat and nothing came out of it. As that may be the case, hear why these accusations are not going to stop and President Trump will see no to the issue. Watch the full interview at BillOReilly.com, each week.” Bill’s Weekly Newsmax Interview

Just some things to think about with all the “Gun Violence” rhetoric and “Gun Control” going around with Chicago having some of the most strictest gun control laws in the country.
