John Hinckley Jr., who wounded U.S. President Ronald Reagan and three other people in a 1981 assassination attempt prompted by a deranged obsession with actress Jodie Foster, can be freed from a psychiatric hospital to live with his mother, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday.

"Indicated the committee plotted against Bernie Sanders." Uh, no, pretty much proved they did.

I think Glenn Greenwald corrects Bill Maher's political and religious bias. All Abrahamic doctrines are equally dangerous. Maher's political bias is found at the very beginning where he says "it's not our fault" referring to the fall of Iran's Shah and the rise of religious Khomeini. His opinion is the Western official narrative lie. At 2:00 after he interrupts another panel member and says "..that silly liberal view that all religions are alike...", he reasons only with a few past decades, when instead the West, the world's GNP heavyweight, has controlled the Middle East's Oil for a century using war and concludes with the Christian-Judaic Western narrative that Islam is, therefore, more dangerous. It's Christian and Judaic Western imperialism that drives the violence in the Middle East and makes it appear Islam is the most dangerous religion. Of course, all three Abrahamic doctrines are equally dangerous.
Unfortunately, Israel has subsidized Orthodox Judaism for five decades which sets Israel on a path to become a much more religious, and therefore, dangerous nation. See http://www.takeoverworld.info/pdf/Engdahl__Century_of_War_book.pdf

All religions rely on fear to control.

You mean even local police have stopped using warrants? When did that happen? Sadly, only about 2.5% of those thrown in jail got to have a trial. The others, if a trial is even possible are done with pleas.

The article doesn't even use the word warrant? WTF is that about??

Actually, I don't think it's so much any true love for the DNC or disrespect for the Greens. Bernie is a man of honor and integrity, and he made a pledge at the first debate to support the Democratic nominee and forego a third party or independent run. He is living by that pledge.
Though I doubt many of his followers would hold it against him given the screw job that the DNC pulled on him, I also doubt he will break faith with that pledge.
Kinda sad, really. A truly honorable public servant is likely going to be dragged down through the mud by the very people he tried to help.

+Yie-Ming Chen That's right, I forgot about congress. I was running short on optimism and needed the reminder.

Are we losing our free speech? excerpt: "Four men in Detroit were arrested over the past week for posts on social media that the police chief called threatening."
 
You were confused. Join the police. They get things done.

Around 3.8 billion years ago, an asteroid more than 150 miles across, roughly equal to the length of New Jersey, slammed into the Moon and created the Imbrium Basin—the right eye of the fabled Man in the Moon. This new size estimate, published in the journal Nature, suggests an Imbrium impactor that was two times larger in diameter and 10 times more massive than previous estimates.

excerpt:
Snowden and Huang are hoping to offer strong privacy guarantees to smartphone owners who need to shield their phones from government-funded adversaries with advanced hacking and surveillance capabilities—particularly reporters trying to carry their devices into hostile foreign countries without constantly revealing their locations.

“One good journalist in the right place at the right time can change history,” Snowden told the MIT Media Lab crowd via video stream. “This makes them a target, and increasingly tools of their trade are being used against them.”

“Our approach is: state-level adversaries are powerful, assume the phone is compromised,” Huang says. “Let’s look at hardware-related signals that are extremely difficult to fake. We want to give a you-bet-your-life assurance that the phone actually has its radios off when it says it does.”
Your smartphone's radio can be used to spy on you. The exiled NSA leaker teamed up with renowned hardware hacker Bunnie Huang to stop it.

+Evan Brody I agree, taking out the battery should work. We can use a metal container for the phone also.
