Breaking News! Glenn Greenwald Arrives in US, Not Arrested, Not Tortured, Not Murdered

And then he woke up. It had all been a dream.
Weird • Views: 15,833

After all the thousands of words Glenn Greenwald has written about the danger he faced if he returned to the United States, and how the government was out to get him and would undoubtedly throw him into solitary confinement instantly upon arrival, and possibly even murder him because that’s how evil Obama is, this morning Greenwald, Laura Poitras and David Miranda arrived in New York to receive an award… and nothing happened.

WAR ON WHISTLEBLOWERS!

Glenn Greenwald is not the self-sacrificing type; this just demonstrates how full of shit he is.

If I honestly believed that the U.S. government would murder me once I stepped onto U.S. soil, no force on Earth could make me go. I certainly wouldn’t go just to accept an award!

IMO, he and Snowden have more to fear from their friends in Russia and China; if either of them die under circumstances that are the slightest bit shady, no one will ever be able to convince the dudebros and emoprogs that the U.S. was not involved. Someone could have video footage of Putin personally forcing Snowden to drink a polonium milkshake and they’d still claim it was a false flag.

re: #5 Brother Holy Cruise Missile of Mild Acceptance

Yeah, he’s probably caught up in the traffic jam caused by the President being in NYC to attend the NAN conference in Midtown. Which was done on purpose to coincide with GG’s return to the US to receive an award that no one ever heard of and which had no particular gravitas until he was named recipient, in which case it became the most important award ever.

13 Brother Holy Cruise Missile of Mild Acceptance  Apr 11, 2014 10:22:46am

NY Times:

Mr. Greenwald, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, said he did not expect trouble when he entered the country, though he said in an interview on Thursday from Berlin that his lawyers would be meeting him at the airport. “The chance of being arrested is pretty low, otherwise I wouldn’t be going,” he said.

so he went from “ZOMG IF I GO BACK THEY’LL THROW ME IN GITMO” to “the chances of me being arrested are pretty low”

I would say that de-escalated quickly…

14 Feline Fearless Leader  Apr 11, 2014 10:25:01am

Probably the most likely thing to happen to him is to get served with papers regarding various civil suits involving him in the US. Wasn’t that one of the main reasons he relocated to Brazil?

37 Charles Johnson  Apr 11, 2014 11:17:07am

re: #34 Randall Gross

The Heartbleed bug is due to a length variable that tells a routine how many bytes to fetch from memory. It’s only supposed to be set to a very small number, but it’s defined as an unsigned 16-bit integer — and the routine doesn’t check to make sure the length hasn’t been set to a very large number. Since an unsigned int can contain a number up to 65,536, it’s possible to pass the routine that number and have it retrieve up to 64K of memory at a time. And because the memory’s allocated dynamically, you can call it repeatedly and get different chunks of RAM each time.

It has interviews with the participants from all sides; Nationalists, Republicans, Anarchists, even Falangists, Italian Fascists and participants of the German Condor Legion. Narrated by Frank Finlay.

Ah, the good old days; when the History Channel actually showed real documentaries containing actual information!! This one was originally broadcast by Granada TV of Britain in 1983.

Ground Zero Mosque update: Save the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’

As if out of a Muslim hater’s dream, New York City Buildings Department demolition permits No. 121955946 and No. 121955134 authorize the holder to reduce the so-called ground zero mosque to rubble.

But the person authorized to perform the demolition is not Sarah Palin or some other purveyor of junk jingoism.

The destroyer of the mosque will be Sharif El-Gamel, the same real-estate developer who created such a furor when he established it as part of a proposed Islamic cultural center four years ago. Haters back then called it “mosque madness” and “Islamic domination and expansionism.” Former Mayor Giuliani denounced it as a “desecration.” Palin tweeted, “peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.”

He is still a developer. And to be one he needs money. He now seems to be abandoning that dream because of a lack of financial support from the Muslim community.

“He couldn’t raise the funds,” says a consultant who worked closely with him in the past.

Federal Grazing Fee
The Federal grazing fee, which applies to Federal lands in 16 Western states on public lands managed by the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service, is adjusted annually and is calculated by using a formula originally set by Congress in the Public Rangelands Improvement Act of 1978. Under this formula, as modified and extended by a presidential Executive Order issued in 1986, the grazing fee cannot fall below $1.35 per animal unit month (AUM); also, any fee increase or decrease cannot exceed 25 percent of the previous year’s level. (An AUM is the amount of forage needed to sustain one cow and her calf, one horse, or five sheep or goats for a month.) The grazing fee for 2014 is $1.35 per AUM, the same level as it was in 2013.


The Federal grazing fee is computed by using a 1966 base value of $1.23 per AUM for livestock grazing on public lands in Western states. The figure is then adjusted each year according to three factors - current private grazing land lease rates, beef cattle prices, and the cost of livestock production. In effect, the fee rises, falls, or stays the same based on market conditions, with livestock operators paying more when conditions are better and less when conditions have declined.

Yeah, that’s pretty much the situation. The guy was letting his herd graze on federal lands without paying the grazing rights to the BLM. The guy accrued nearly $300k in fees/fines as a result. The BLM sought the fees, and the guy has refused, claiming that his family has always grazed on this land and that they don’t recognize the federal government’s claims to the land (which is federal lands that are currently administered by the BLM).

The Park51 concept needed $40-50 million, and it’s been clear for more than a year now that they couldn’t raise the money. So, they’re going to demolish the property and will likely build condos on the site, though the mosque that operates there may still end up in the building.

The Park51 concept included a community center (something the area sorely needs) and a mosque.

One of the reasons that they’re acting now? Down the block Silverstein Properties is finally building the AM Stern designed tower at the former Moodys site, which will be one of the tallest residential/hotel combo properties in the City, and will be taller than the nearby Gehry building at 8 Spruce. The Silverstein site had been dormant for the past couple of years until the end of last year, when building began in earnest. It’s already about 15 stories tall, and growing fast.

He’s looking to cash in on the building down the block.

NSA Said to Have Used Heartbleed Bug, Exposing Consumers

The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.

The NSA’s decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts.

Note that this doesn’t distinguish who was being targeted with this surveillance - foreign or US citizens, or both. If it was foreign targets (countries, terror groups, etc.,) then this is a nothing burger - the NSA should be trying to exploit these types of issues to gain as much intel as it can.

If it was used against US citizens, then it needs to explain itself and verify that it didn’t violate US law, including the 4th Amendment.

The NSA isn’t necessarily responsible for warning about exploits/holes in various data platforms. That would be US-CERT, which is part of the DHS.

Maybe and maybe not. There was some concern a couple decades ago about the low cost of federal grazing leases. They are cheaper than on private land, but at least one reasonably unbiased study found that because the federal leases did not include any “improvements” they netted out at a similar cost to private leases.

edited to note that I’m in no way an expert on grazing leases.

I read somewhere that in 1993 (when this guy quit paying) the land was transferred from being “public land” to being administered by the federal government. The distinction escapes me because the public lands were administered by the feds before that, but evidently there was an outrageously outrageous change in status that he didn’t like which was therefore totally invalid.

i’ve been trying to find out more about ‘heartbeat’ algorithms, which generally seem to describe remote connection ‘keep-alive’ routines, but i still have no idea why copying over a chunk of RAM is necessary for an implementation of it

anybody know more about why the heartbeat algorithm used in openSSL was designed that way?

Some things just can’t be explained. Like, how do they get the deer to cross the road where they put the deer crossing warning signs?

re: #73 lawhawk

The Park51 concept needed $40-50 million, and it’s been clear for more than a year now that they couldn’t raise the money. So, they’re going to demolish the property and will likely build condos on the site, though the mosque that operates there may still end up in the building.

The Park51 concept included a community center (something the area sorely needs) and a mosque.

One of the reasons that they’re acting now? Down the block Silverstein Properties is finally building the AM Stern designed tower at the former Moodys site, which will be one of the tallest residential/hotel combo properties in the City, and will be taller than the nearby Gehry building at 8 Spruce. The Silverstein site had been dormant for the past couple of years until the end of last year, when building began in earnest. It’s already about 15 stories tall, and growing fast.

He’s looking to cash in on the building down the block.

I would have like to see the project completed just as a “Fuck you” to the people trying to force others to bow to their outrage. Oh, well. The dude’s gotta make money.

They were mostly old and yacking it up in person like they do on twitter, but they all have kids and grandkids who have been inculcated to one degree or another, and they are armed most of the time.

re: #86 calochortus

I read somewhere that in 1993 (when this guy quit paying) the land was transferred from being “public land” to being administered by the federal government. The distinction escapes me because the public lands were administered by the feds before that, but evidently there was an outrageously outrageous change in status that he didn’t like which was therefore totally invalid.

Still public land. What BLM did in 1993 was restrict some of the land use to protect the desert tortoise. This guy said he wasn’t going to change his use of the land because of some turtle. Eventually the land was completely blocked from grazing permits to make a restricted habitat for the tortoise.

So what’s going on is a two-fer. He hasn’t been paying for the permits, and he’s been letting his cattle graze in a restricted habitat.

I just ignore calls from unidentified numbers. If they leave a message I might listen to it to see if it is something of import. Otherwise I occasionally review the “recent” calls and assign the obvious spam stuff to contact names I have identified as spam and set to not ring, not buzz, etc. if the number calls again. I have similar contacts for Comcast and a few other businesses that are allowed to call me due to me having accounts with them.

That’s only for federal land ownership, when you include state government-owned lands, the percentages are even higher.

It would actually push government land ownership (all levels) to 81% for a state like Nevada and 89% for Alaska.

For New York, federal government owned land accounts for .26% of the state landmass, but NYS owns Adirondack Park and Catskill preserves, which boost government control to nearly 37%. Those figures exclude military and tribal lands too.

I’m curious to what effect the lack of a unified government really played in the distribution of land for the early states. By the time the west really started to come into play, it was clear that the land was in the purview of the government and you could earn yours by homesteading or whatever. But when the early settlers came over from Europe, it was more with land grants (to the big wigs) that were parceled out, I think? This is an area I’m really not familiar with.

Herbalife stock sheds 10% after FT reports FBI launches criminal probe

“The US Department of Justice and the FBI are investigating Herbalife, the multi-level marketing company that hedge fund manager Bill Ackman has alleged is a pyramid scheme, according to people familiar with the matter.

“The criminal investigation by the FBI and US attorney’s office in Manhattan raises the stakes for Herbalife, which is already facing civil inquiries from multiple government agencies that are looking into the Los Angeles-based company and its associated network of independent distributors.

(snip)

“Herbalife sells nutritional shakes and supplements through millions of distributors in more than 80 countries. As part of its campaign to have Herbalife closed down and drive its share price to zero, Mr Ackman’s hedge fund, Pershing Square, has published a series of dossiers on senior distributors who it alleges have helped perpetrate the pyramid fraud.” More

Sections of what are currently northeastern Ohio were earmarked for this and referred to by related names. Plus the colonies traded western land claims to the federal government in exchange for forgiveness of debt.

en.wikipedia.org

Note that the initial colony charters often contradicted the land claims of other colonies.

This is the correct response to pretty much all of the world’s spam ills.

Nobody has any business attempting to contact me by phone or email unless I have specifically authorized them to.

If you have friends and relatives you can’t really do this. You don’t want to block calls from the hospital about any of your relatives for instance.

Pretty much, this. Cell phones make it more possible to pull the trigger on the whitelist option but I’m still hesitant to do so in the case of family emergencies, where I cannot anticipate all possible numbers that might call the house.

Charter, which uses some phone company in SC, from what I’ve seen. They inadvertently sent me a bill when I first signed up for Charter here 4 yrs ago. The bill is actually paid to Charter which takes its cut and passes the rest on the the provider, I suppose.

I’m not familiar with Charter. I know the old style phone companies and cable companies like Comcast and Verizon offer phone service with all the bells and whistles and are through their secure network. Phone services running through the internet like Vontage or Magicjack are not secure. Someone can hack your phone calls and listen. If you are ordering something with a credit card you just handed your number to someone else. Be aware.

Continuing on eastern colony development -

And there were also purchases by developers of “western” lands from the states. They also had to deal with getting land rights from the natives as well.

The above link is about the history, purchases, and development that led to the settlement of much of western New York state; Finger Lakes, Genesee River Valley, etc.

So apparently Bundy is claiming that federal lands somehow passed to the ownership of the state of Nevada upon statehood.
Further, because his use of the federally owned land predates the creation of the BLM, he doesn’t feel he is subject to its regulations.

“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and the water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy told the station…

…”The federal government has seized Nevada’s sovereignty … they have seized Nevada’s laws and our public land. We have no access to our public land and that is only a little bit of it,” he said.

An interesting legal theory, but one the courts haven’t accepted. Ever.

And total BS. Permits were established under the Taylor Grazing Act in 1934. BLM came into existence in 1946 due to multiple bureaus being merged. Bundy paid fees up to 1993 and then stopped. So he is just dipping into the squatter’s rights and sovereign citizen pools for justification after the fact.

Charter is a cable co. This isn’t Vonage or MagicJack, but it’s not a dedicated phone line to my apt, either, like the old AT&T lines. It doesn’t work unless my internet service from Charter is working.

Yep. In this case he’s decided that the state is the ultimate authority. Doesn’t make it so.
But, allegedly, militia members, Oathkeepers and the like are converging on the property to support him. I wonder how many will actually show up.

I believe the triggering event was that the number of cattle he was allowed to run on that allotment was significantly reduced in 1993. He went to court and lost, and went to court again and lost. Etc.

Most of the folks bitching online? Sure, that might be true.

Some of the sovereign citizens who’ve gone to NV to make a stand?

I sincerely hope that this entire thing ends without bloodshed, but I have less optimism there.

I suspect most of them there hope to be the next Crispus Attucks.

They might not be so eager if they knew Attucks was black though.

There’s long precedent of loons pulling this crap to become wingnut folk heroes - when I was young up in Alaska it was Joe Vogler in the standoff with BLM.

For the record, “traditional” phone lines can also be easily tapped at the box where they enter the house. Better not say your credit card over those either.
