Twitter: We Comply with 63% of Government Requests – Mashable.com

Twitter: We Comply with 63% of Government Requests | Mashable.com.

Twitter released its first transparency report Monday — but the takeaway may not have been exactly what the company hoped for.

The report focused on several matters relating to users’ freedom to post what they want: how frequently governments around the world ask for Twitter users’ account details; how often Twitter complies with those requests; and how many copyright complaints it receives and grants to content-owning companies.

Twitter has responded to requests for 1,181 users’ information thus far in 2012, the report reveals. The vast majority of those were inside the U.S. Overall, in 63% of cases, some form of user info was handed over. (In U.S. cases, that rose to 75%.)

The company was at pains to point out that it informs users when they’ve been asked to hand over details, except where prohibited by law. It also trumpeted the fact that it has acceded to no government requests for outright censorship of tweets. (Law enforcement in five countries asked for that.)

NewsDiffs Shows Changes Made to New York Times Articles After They’re Published | Betabeat.

Read the article: NewsDiffs Shows Changes Made to New York Times Articles After They’re Published | Betabeat.

I’ve heard stories of online news magically changing, I’ve witnessed it happen, I know it happens, but I am always happy to see it brought to the public’s attention. We ARE being censored, we ARE being monitored, my mail has been opened and inspected, and I’m not sure about the noises my friend and I always hear when we talk to each other on the phone.

I wish the people still sleeping would snap out of it and realize everything they know is a lie. I am aware that I am ignorant as well. In an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) world where information travels so quickly and is at your fingertips at all times, we cannot possibly ever know the full narrative, but at least I try to find truth, to understand it, and share what I find with others (most of whom don’t listen.) When they wake up one day after QE3 and their money that they just HAD to make is worth nothing, and the job that they just COULD NOT take a vacation from no longer pays enough for them to eat, maybe then they’ll get it.  It will be too late though. I think it already is too late.

For the story on how I have been (and most likely still am) monitored, see My mail opened and inspected…

I made a large online purchase of all the books that will most likely eventually be banned. Two of my packages came opened and marked. My best friend, whom I have long discussions with concerning corruption and dissent on the phone as well as via email exchange, had her new phone intercepted at the post office by feds, however she was out of the state at the time.

Wow, was the person who did this 8 years old, or was it opened by the monkey they use to train the TSA?

It’s a little known fact that government employees are actually trained by monkeys. (This is a joke.)

One of the packages that was ripped open just happened to be H.G. Wells New World Order. Seriously.

After my best friend and I started emailing and talking about corruption and dissent, this started popping up on her computer. Now it shows up all of the time, but disappears within a few seconds. We’ve got some strange things going on with our phones too.


My mail opened & inspected, one package was ‘The New World Order’ by Wells; “FBI Task Force” listed in wifi networks. Is it real?

One of the packages that was ripped open by the government before I received it just happened to be H.G. Wells New World Order. Seriously.

One night I ordered over sixty books on Amazon.com that could very well be banned in ten years.  I chose a lot of H.G. Wells, Huxley, Zbigniew, Kissinger, Woodward, Kagan, Bernays, and many, many more.  I even got the actual Agenda 21 manual, which is put together in a hard cover book.  When my orders started arriving, I noticed two packages had been opened and marked with bright orange stickers.  One of the packages contained the book The New World Order by H.G. Wells.

This is one of the packages that was opened by grubby fed paws. They obviously wanted me to know.

Wow, was the person who did this 8 years old? Nice skills, boot-licker, did you finally graduate kindergarten?

Julian P. Heicklen, 79-year-old, Arrested for Handing Out “Jury Info” Pamphlets

9 May

New York Times- Prosecution Explains Jury Tampering

“Mr. Heicklen, who could face a six-month sentence if convicted, has asked for a jury trial. Ms. Mermelstein, opposing that demand, cited as one reason Mr. Heicklen’s ardent stance that juries should nullify. He would probably ‘urge a jury to do so in a case against him,’ she wrote. “

nytimes.com

A man arrested for handing out pamphlets marked “Jury Info” is may be denied a trial for his beliefs by this disgraceful prosecutor, Rebecca Mermelstein,  and faces a six months sentence.  Do you need another example of how this country is no longer free?

Julian P. Heicklen, a 79-year-old retired chemistry professor, has often stood on a plaza outside the United States Courthouse in Manhattan, holding a “Jury Info” sign and handing out brochures that advocate jury nullification, the controversial view that if jurors disagree with a law, they may ignore their oaths to follow it and may acquit a defendant who violated it.

“A law repugnant to the Constitution is void.”    This was established in Marbury v. Madison, 1803, by Chief Justice John Marshall.  According to constitutionfacts.com, “Hereafter, the Court was recognized as having the power to review all acts of Congress where constitutionality was at issue, and judge whether they abide by the Constitution.”  It is our duty as Americans to oppose unconstitutional laws.

Then, last year, federal prosecutors had Mr. Heicklen indicted, charging that his activity violated the law against jury tampering. Lawyers assisting him have sought dismissal of the case on First Amendment grounds.

But now prosecutors are offering their first detailed explanation for why they charged Mr. Heicklen, arguing in a brief that his “advocacy of jury nullification, directed as it is to jurors, would be both criminal and without Constitutional protections no matter where it occurred.”

“His speech is not protected by the First Amendment,” prosecutors wrote.
