A hack revisited -- thanks to what hacks, or hackers?

Some hack left IRS computers open for hackers, who hacked 'em but bad:

Hack Brief: Last Year's IRS Hack Was Way Worse Than We Realized

The triple zeroes are what staggers you half the time. Crunching the huge numbers can provoke amazement, shock or outrage. "WHEN THE IRS first reported a hack", it says, "that exposed taxpayer accounts’ vulnerable information, it pegged the number of affected people at a little over 100,000. Today, in its second upward revision, the number of affected people now stands at over 700,000."

There are about 315 million people in the USA. Thus in just this one hack, one out of every 450 individuals here was left naked to digital mayhem. Each household on average allegedly has 2.54 people in it. If we conservatively estimate that each "taxpayer" lives with one immediate family member, e.g. a dependent, a stupid, inexcusable lapse like this is affecting more like one out of every 225 of us. And this incident is just a drop in the bucket of the IRS's mayhem, persecution and vicious tyranny over the sheeple!

Sure, most of the people whose info was compromised won't have any trouble from it -- I think. But it's no healthier for America to have this going on than to force every non-plutocrat who gets on an airplane to pass through the lust brigade.

Who's minding the store? Or are they just rioting in it?

"Today, in its second upward revision" -- watch this space.

Sinister website further enshrines FATCA threats

"The last thing a government does before it self-destructs is rob the people." Michael Rivero frequently declares this on his magnificent internet radio show* I relay the following story to show how hatefully the government is treating its subjects, but also what passes for journalism these days: 

Washington has already destroyed financial privacy here and in Europe in the name of fighting TERR'ISM, don'tcha know. Europe is know to be understandably furious about it. Who is Babylon-on-the-Potomac to be dictating anything to them, much less throttling those countries' banking lives? So you'd think a Europe-based website would be on the side of the people on this, coaching people on how to resist the tyranny before the IRS comes for the fillings in our teeth.

This news doesn't affect any of us but various compatriots are attempting to escape the New Soviet America and this stuff's wreaking havoc with their lives. They don't even have that much money but the NWO isn't leaving the tiniest pebbles unturned anymore.

IRS pounds Microsoft, Microsoft sues back -- HD erased

You may have missed this news amidst all the theatrics over mass-murderer Hillary Clinton's email crimes. But it looks pretty major!

IRS Pulls Another Fast One That Has Republicans in Congress Outraged

If there's this much gross misconduct going on in the public's blind spot, how much more is there that doesn't even get covered at sites like Tea Party Journal? Bravo for Microsoft despite its own corporate atrocities, like trying to force Windows 10 on us all. A central page and utility for stopping that, by the way:

Remove unwanted Windows 10 upgrade files from Windows 7 and Windows 8.x
Ultimate Outsider's GWX Control Panel

Is hate a bad word? A lot of nice people are suddenly saying it

The Beatles asserted "all you need is love" in a famous song. Since their heyday, most first-worlders have tried to expunge all negative emotions from their lives in the mistaken belief that that's the healthy norm. Even Christians are living in the love bubble, forgetting that the Bible commands us at least twice to hate evil. Times may be changing:

Americans Really, Really Hate The Government
If there is one thing that Americans can agree on these days, it is the fact that most of us don’t like the government. CBS News has just released an article entitled “Americans hate the U.S. government more than ever“, and an average of recent surveys calculated by Real Clear Politics found that 63 percent of all Americans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction and only 28 percent of all Americans believe that the country is heading in the right direction. In just a few days the first real ballots of the 2016 election will be cast in Iowa, and up to this point the big story of this cycle has been the rise of “outsider” candidates that many of the pundits had assumed would never have a legitimate chance. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders have all been beneficiaries of the overwhelming disgust that the American people feel regarding what has been going on in Washington..........

The change will be slow, I fear. One indication is that in the middle of this otherwise frank and important article, massive stupidity rears its head. A lot of Republican voters, it says, "are gravitating toward either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. Both of those candidates represent a complete break from how establishment Republicans have been doing things in recent years." Cruz real -- a conservative and equivalent in any way to the Donald? 

This is the great achilles heel of today's politics: people don't know real conservatism from fake anymore. The establishment's disgusting, hateful shills like Kasich, Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Santorum et al are still fooling millions. Whether Trump proves another snake or a real statesman, only time will tell -- but he's only been any kind of conservative for seven months. Meanwhile, it's a thrill to see him humiliate and excoriate the Permanent Regime.

The above article came my way via Freedom Forum:

I spend hours there each day and highly recommend it. This just in -- are you read for a company called Crowds on Demand?

Truman Show USA - "Concerned Citizens" At Townhall Meetings Exposed As Paid

It has a CEO, no less -- unsurprisingly a graduate of UCLA. We've complained of liberal "rent-a-mob" tactics for years but never expected it to go so public, so matter-of-fact. Would Orwell be laughing or spinning in his grave at this news?

IRS admits service and security stink, deflects blame to Prez

Oh, it's perfect! OBAMACARE COMPLIANCE is the stated reason why IRS activity is partly gutted:

IRS chief: Blame rotten customer service and data hacks on Obamacare

Both cybersecurity and customer service at the Internal Revenue Service have suffered because of Obamacare, the agency's head said in remarks to Congress on Thursday.

"Congress, as I noted in my testimony, has underfunded … the Affordable Care Act," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told a panel of the House Appropriations Committee. "That does not remove the statutory mandate we have that we have to implement the act."

Koskinen delivered his remarks in response to a question from Chairman Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., who pointed out that Congress had "increased funding specifically for taxpayer services" in 2014 and 2016.

Koskinen said it didn't matter where Congress intended the money to go, explaining the agency had pulled funding for customer service and cybersecurity in order to ensure compliance with the ACA.

"As I said two years ago, at the continued level of underfunding, the things that were going to suffer were going to be enforcement, taxpayer service, and ultimately … information technology," Koskinen said.

More than eight million phone calls to the agency's customer service line went unanswered in the last filing season. Koskinen added that the agency hasn't fully funded customer service for the last "three or four years," and that about $900 million had been pulled from cybersecurity.,,...

Whoa, EIGHT MILLION CALLS to IRS "CUSTOMER SERVICE" went unanswered? That's more than 800 per working hour at 500 weeks peryear, apparently more than they're talking about! Hey -- "customer service" -- if they still insist on calling it that, it's got to be the worst record of it in any sector or corner of the global economy ever.

What better time than the present to demand what the "Service" is selling if we're its "customers"? But what other meaning do these terms have? What other entity on earth offers "customer service" if the only transaction is you giving them money for federal operations so removed from your real interests, needs and wants they might as well be on trans-Neptunian object (15760) 1992 QB1.

Just how much "security" do we have to have before we can actually feel secure again?

Finally, Harrell in total disgrace and OUT IN THE COLD

The wheels of justice grind slowly in South Carolina -- when they grind at all. Here they've ground out a big victory over long-entrenched corruption in the belly of the beast -- the GOP buddy system in Columbia:

Harrell Saga Comes to Losing End

In what was likely the last time disgraced former House Speaker Bobby Harrell faced his peers in a Blatt Building meeting room Tuesday morning, Harrell was a defeated man.

Bobby Harrell will have to repay $113,475 in legal fees he used campaign funds for.
Bobby Harrell will have to repay $113,475 in legal fees he used campaign funds for.
Attempting one last appeal that his expenditures of $113,475 in campaign funds to pay legal defenses related to his failed defense against ethics charges he pleaded guilty to were legal, Harrell’s latest attorney, Mark Peper, made a 10-minute argument on his client’s behalf but to no avail.

After a meeting in executive session to consider Peper’s appeals – a total dropping of the charges against him – prosecuting attorney Deborah Barbier took the podium to reiterate the state’s position against Harrell: The use of funds was illegal, Harrell made misrepresentations to the committee about them, the claims made by Peper had no basis (including one in which Peper alleged First Circuit Solicitor David Pascoe told him it was OK), and the state should seek repayment within 180 days and issue a public reprimand and $1,000 fine.

In a unanimous vote moments later, the House Ethics Committee did just that, finding Harrell guilty of using campaign funds to pay fees in a criminal case he lost that centered around misuse of campaign funds for personal gain.

“I’m disappointed,” Harrell said in a brief statement in the hallway outside following the meeting. “I don’t agree with the decision the committee made but I do very much appreciate the committee finally giving us an opportunity to come up and state our side publicly.”

Per South Carolina law, Harrell would have been able to pay for his defense with campaign funds if he had won his case.

As for having to pay back the $113,475, Peper said his client doesn’t have it, as he faces a bill of more than $600,000 in attorney’s fees incurred during his losing fight. “And he doesn’t have my bill yet,” Peper said with a smile as he walked away.

Two telling comments follow the piece:

Does this mean that finally someone in this state is willing to take on the corrupt politicians?

One could say this judgement is better than going to jail.

The latter is, I trust, facetious. Jail is indeed a less damaging fate than some others, but they really should be throwing this bum in the slammer and tossing the key into the Congaree River.

The IRS is the next NSA

The Internal Revenue "Service" is now using surveillance devices on citizens, probably politically motivated. This was discussed at the fantastic PN meeting in Greer, SC on Saturday. Here is a PROMOTION on it. No doubt you get these lengthy audio-visual presentations via email -- there's no way to verify the product or services at the end, but they often contain useful, timely topical info:

Someones blown the whistle.
And its no surprise that the IRS is rife with corruption and abuse of power. The people wielding this power operate in an environment where our socialist government’s ability to effectively “take” is more effective than ever before….
Here are three facts you should know:
(1) The IRS is politically motivated and targets certain groups.
You have probably heard something about this... Less than a year ago, the IRS was caught up in a conspiracy whereby they were targeting Liberty-based organizations filing for tax exempt status.
In June 2015, it came out that the IRS targeted specific political groups, like the Tea Party, applying for tax-exempt status, delayed processing of targeted groups’ applications, and requested unnecessary information from targeted groups. (some of which had been in process for three years).
But there is something even more troubling...
(2) The IRS can and will spy on you.
The IRS is acting like the NSA and using secret spy technology, usually reserved for law enforcement, to track cell phones. The Guardian reported last year that the IRS spent tens of thousands on Sting Rays, devices used by authorities that act like cell phone towers and intercept cell phone signals that would normally go to cellular towers. This allows authorities to track where you are, usually without a warrant and often without a court order. Some Sting Rays can even detect information about your texts, calls and emails.
One of these "super stingrays" is called the HailStorm, which is capable of gathering the actual contents of conversations and images in addition to gathering location and numbers dialed.
Worried now? Just keep reading…
(3) They have no checks and balances on their behavior.
After the reports came out that the IRS was targeting certain groups, President Obama dismissed it on the Daily Show as “Congress’ Fault” and a reaction to a “Crummy Law” which Congress had passed. Obama went so far as to say that there was “ “not a smidgen of corruption” related to the incident. Accountability? None.
And in response to the allegations of spy tactics? The IRS heads ignored subpoenas and once again trampled on our privacy rights without anyone batting an eye.
Enough is enough, and at least one inside agent has just flipped.
You won’t believe his incredible story.

We present this strictly as backup to developments now going on, but do not of course endorse what's being sold.

"Freest country in the world"??

"They hate us for our freedom and prosperity"????
