MICROSOFT’S $26.1 BILLION LINKEDIN PONZI SCHEME

Deal mired in Clinton pay-to-play, patent theft, privacy invasion, fraudulent inducement and racketeering

Microsoft's $26.1 billion Ponzi scheme
Fig. 1—Microsoft's $26.1 billion offer for LinkedIn is a money laundering scheme. The big offshore money launderers like HSBC, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and UBS are Microsoft, Facebook and LinkedIn underwriters. This deal is nothing more than a shifting of the deck chairs on the Titanic of international corruption. It also serves to top up the coffers of Barack Obama and his cronies as he prepares to leave office.

(Jun. 17, 2016)—Announced then lost in the fog of the tragedies in Orlando was Microsoft’s intent to buy LinkedIn for $26.1 billion. The obscene valuation signals another effort by Barack Obama to bankroll his retirement and ongoing efforts to create his new world order.

Microsoft and LinkedIn (more specifically ex-PayPal executives) are key players in the carefully crafted emergence of social networking as a universal spy data gathering utility for the NSA.

New, Jun. 19, 2016: The very same former PayPal owners "founded" all things Facebook (e.g., Reid Hoffman, James W. Breyer, Peter Thiel, Joseph Lonsdale, Matt Cohler). In 2004, Breyer became chairman of the National Venture Capital Association with fellow director Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, the C.I.A. private venture capital business. Londsdale and Theil formed Palantir in 2004 to sell special data snooping services to the NSA. 2004 was a magical year for the rise of social networking thanks to Columbus OH innovator Leader Technologies finally getting their invention debugged on Oct. 28, 2003—the same magical night that Harvard sophomore Mark Zuckerberg hacked the Harvard dormitories for student photos with president Larry Summers' full blessing, we're sure. See 2004 Timeline from People you trusted are now hijacking the Internet.

Question: How can a public entity like the C.I.A. justify operating a private Silicon Valley venture capital business like In-Q-Tel?

Answer: Easy, just dial up your crony Princeton law professor Anne-Marie Slaughter (George Soros in-law) and order her to write a book singing the praises of "public-private partnerships" and name it "A New World Order"—which she did on or about Apr. 12, 2004.

Note that Slaughter was one of Hillary Clinton's first political hires as Secretary of State in 2009.

Through the issuance of a string of Executive Orders since Bill Clinton in 1995, this illegal spying on U.S. citizens has been justified. The leadership also patiently placed loyalist weasel attorneys, largely from Harvard Law, inside the regulatory agencies who, when given the signal, looked the other way.

For example, Facebook’s unprecedented exemption on Oct. 15, 2008 from the 500 shareholder rule was decided by Thomas J. Jim, a Harvard Law graduate and Latham & Watkins LLP attorney.

John G. Roberts, Jr.
John G. Roberts, Jr.
The Latham firm is peopled with insiders loyal to James W. Breyer, Facebook's venture capitalist, a fellow Harvardian. Breyer's venture capital firm Accel Partners LLP is also peopled with Harvardians. Over two thirds of the U.S. Supreme Court justices are Harvard Law graduates, including Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.—sole overseer of the FISA Court.

During the energy stimulus boondoggle, Energy Secretary Steven Chu closed his eyes and approved tens of billions of dollars to Harvardian Barack Obama donors, like Elon Musk, with no experience in energy. His energy “advisers” were McBee Strategic LLC and Cooley Godward LLP, Facebook’s attorney.

Spoiler Alert:
These same people favor repeal of the the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. (Would-be totalitarian weasels always do.)

Closer to home, who do you think wrote those long, slimy customer license agreements that you ignore when you sign up for a service? These same weasel attorneys wrote them. The devil is in that detail. You give up all to your personal privacy and data when you click them. That provider can do whatever they want to do with your data, including feed it to the NSA, which they do.

Therefore, the NSA via its crony providers already has your permission to steal from you. Legally.

Facebook and Google End License Agreements
Fig. 2—Facebook and Google End User License Agreements do not protect consumers— ALL privacy and intellectual property rights are sacrificed to use "free" services. To simply click on and print the Google and Facebook end user license agreements took a skilled clerical professional 31.75 hours for the Facebook terms and 28.5 hours for Google. This person discovered that buried in each license were links to the other licenses in the Cartel. Experienced legal observers believe this is so weasel attorneys for these social networking companies can argue their way out of all liability for anything under the sun. AFI does not believe these agreements satisfy consumer protection laws protecting against such predatory practices.

This might be indecent, immoral, deceptive, but it is probably “legal.” We say “probably” because the legality of these 1,600+-page online agreements has not been tested by consumer protection laws. AFI researchers recently analyzed the Google and Facebook end user licenses, including embedded links. We stopped at 8 layers deep and printed every page. They totaled over 800 pages with easily an additional 800 pages if we had kept clicking. [Return in a few days to this article and we will show you a photo of these user license licenses to steal your Constitutional rights to privacy and property.)

Logic says that these weasel attorneys should not be allowed to deceive unsuspecting customers like this. But right now, they do, and are getting away with it.

James P. Chandler, III

The Clinton Foundation was founded 1997. The Clintons and IBM relied heavily on the legal counsel of James P. Chandler, III. This is well known in Washington, D.C. from the many attendees at Chandler's trade secrets, encryption and economic espionage conferences in which he often reminded his audiences of his prowess and access.

Chandler agreed to become Leader Technologies’ patent attorney in 2000 while meeting with inventor Michael T. McKibben. McKibben described his social networking invention to Chandler at a pre-engagement meeting at the Taberna del Alabardero restaurant in Washington, D.C. near Chandler’s law office on Apr. 06, 2000. McKibben told another director that day: “He'll be able to watch our backs.”

He was so wrong.

What Leader did not know was that Chandler was already plotting a takeover of the emerging Internet with Bill & Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, IBM, Microsoft and NSA insiders. Clinton’s Executive Order 12958 setting up a secret intelligence agency run without Congressional oversight out of the White House was already operating.

Whistleblowers have since exposed the agenda to mass-distribute the social networking invention of Columbus innovator Leader Technologies so that the NSA could control a universal backdoor to the emerging “social” Internet.

By early 2004, the whole technology world had signed up to receive the social networking goodies stolen from Leader Technologies. Chandler had cajoled for himself a “file copy” of Leader’s source code, then immediately fed it to IBM Eclipse, who in turn, fed it to the entire technology world as “open source” (free and without copyrights).

President), Carol Bartz (Yahoo CEO) and Dick Costolo (Twitter CEO)
Fig. 3—On Feb. 17, 2011, President Obama toasted their deception of the American public and the world with 13 members of the IBM Eclipse Foundation NSA Spy State Cartel in Silicon Valley. Conspirators pictured are Barack Obama, U.S. President; Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO; Steve Jobs, Apple CEO; Steve Westly, Westly Group Partner; John Doerr, Kleiner Perkins Partner; Ann Doerr, John Doerr Spouse; Eric Schmidt, Google CEO; Art Levinson, Genentech Chairman); John Chambers, Cisco CEO; Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO; Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO; John Hennessy, Stanford Univ. President; Carol Bartz, Yahoo CEO and Dick Costolo, Twitter CEO.

On Nov. 29, 2001, IBM “donated” $40 million to form The Eclipse Foundation. This was just six weeks after 9/11.

Constitutional weasels at the White House

Chandler’s White House intelligence operation dictates the decisions of the FISA Court, and controls nominations to federal judgeships. Therefore, this private intelligence agency is constitutionally rogue and operates to this day.

Barack Obama and his political cartel have exploited this secret agency’s control over the NSA and the whole of American government. Obama has been unable to completely hide his co-conspirators.

On Feb. 17, 2011 Barack Obama organized a private dinner for his Silicon Valley co-conspirators on a trip to California. An intrepid photographer photographed their toast. See Fig. 2.

On Mar. 02, 2015, President Obama met with chief beneficiaries of the stolen Eclipse Foundation code:IBM, Xerox, Dell, Micron, Qualcomm and EMC. Given the timing of this meeting―a week after the radical “Net Neutrality” changes to Internet regulation by the FCC—the real agenda of this group was most likely to discuss progress on their common agenda—the IBM et al “The Internet of Things” takeover of global digital infrastructure

On Mar. 02, 2015, Obama organized another meeting with additional co-conspirators at the White House, attended only by his consiglieri, Valerie Jarrett. See Fig. 3.

Edward Snowden’s patriotism

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden pulled back the curtain on this secret White House intelligence agency when he revealed that AT&T has been feeding customer data illegally to the NSA since about 2005 and Microsoft signed up on Sep. 11, 2007.

Whistleblowers from HSBC bank, WikiLeaks and the Panama Papers have further opened the curtain on this rogue agency and have revealed that it is funded by offshore money laundering.

American and Chinese technology public offerings appear to be the vehicle of choice for moving their dirty money into large markets.

Indeed, the Chinese ties to Obamacare are unmistakable. See previous post.

LinkedIn is an NSA spy-state creation, like Facebook

Look at any major website today and you will see the same NSA Cartel members beckoning users to “Like.” Google, Facebook, Linked In, YouTube, Twitter.

The surveillance loop is being perfected in Barack Obama’s lame duck season.

Microsoft has been right there, they have just had to play coy due to past anti-trust prohibitions against predatory monopolism. That said, the University of Washington has been among their surrogate members of the IBM Eclipse Foundation since 2001. So has Hewlett-Packard and Facebook (in which Microsoft is a major shareholder).

By supposedly “acquiring” LinkedIn, Microsoft believes it can come out of the social media closet, it appears.

LinkedIn’s dirty little secret is that its founders also own Palantir, founded by former PayPal executive Reid Hoffman and Joseph Lonsdale. Palantir has provided data snooping software to the NSA since 2004. Therefore, Microsoft won’t have to hide its cooperation with Palantir and the NSA any longer either.

Social Networking is an NSA monopoly dressed in diversity

On the surface, users have a lot of choice:

  • Microsoft
  • IBM
  • LinkedIn
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google
  • YouTube
  • Reddit

But in reality, there is no choice. All data flows through the NSA. This is a monopoly like the world has never seen.

Will We The People wake up to this threat to every principle of freedom that America stands for? Even the Congressional website is compromised.

Do you like the idea of all digital communications being in the hands of secret, unaccountable crony capitalists? Didn’t think so.

Do something about it.

Don’t say I can’t.

Don’t take no for an answer.

Why is the Microsoft-LinkedIn deal dirty?

Obama's Regulators
Obama Administration Regulators
(Read: Fellow weasel attorneys from Harvard Law)

Note: The moniker "weasel attorneys" was proposed recently by The Center for Public Integrity to replace adjectives refering to them as "elite" since nothing in their conduct is anything but base immorality dressed in a Harvard blazer.

The deal makes perfect sense if you are an offshore money launderer like Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Bank of New York or HSBC looking to move tens of billions of dollars sitting in the Cayman Islands into the American market.

The best time to do it is while Obama’s regulators are getting cricks in their necks looking the other way.

Various whistleblowers have proven that Facebook’s and LinkedIn’s underwriters, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, UBS, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Wells Fargo, Barclays, Bank of America and State Street, all operate offshore money laundering operations in places like the Isle of Man, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and Panama. Numerous ones have now been tied to the Clintons, George Soros, Facebook, James W. Breyer, Accel Partners, Peter Thiel, Yuri Milner, Lawrence H. Summers, Sheryl K Sandberg, former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, and the Clinton's and Obama's favorite Russian oligarch, Alisher Usmanov. See numerous previous posts.

NSA/CIA self-funds through manipulation of U.S. law—Congressional oversight is a fiction—lawlessness rules their decisions

We also know that the C.I.A.’s “private” venture capital arm In-Q-Tel invests in companies like Facebook and LinkedIn along with numerous mutual funds like Fidelity, Vanguard, BlackRock and T. Rowe Price. This way, the public U.S. government can siphon private returns through the companies in which In-Q-Tel invests, thus private funding intelligence activities without the hassle of Congressional oversight.

Ask Yourself: How can a public CIA own and manage a private In-Q-Tel Silicon Valley venture capital firm? It is an obvious abuse of common sense and the separation of powers. It is an excuse for bureaucrats to gain private wealth and power.

We have proven that an essentially unaccountable, private U.S. intelligence operation has been created and operational for over a decade by way of Executive Orders starting in 1995 with Executive Order 12958 and right through three presidents—all without Congressional oversight.

Microsoft-LinkedIn is a dirty NSA merger

This $26.1 billion Microsoft-LinkedIn merger is obscene on numerous levels.

  1. Monopolistic: It is monopolistic. Microsoft is a large Facebook shareholder and already dominates the global personal computer operating system market.

  2. Revolving door of conflicts among former Obama staff: Obama’s SEC and Commerce regulators will surely turn a blind eye to the true public interest in this deal. Hundreds of former Obama officials now work in Silicon Valley. Previously, the Commerce Department’s U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) began its own Facebook page before Leader Technologies’ trial against Facebook. The lawlessness is rampant.

  3. Stolen Social Networking Technology: Like Facebook, LinkedIn uses the social networking invention that the IBM Eclipse Foundation stole from Columbus innovator Leader Technologies.

  4. Fraudulent Conveyance of Stolen Property: A Microsoft-LinkedIn sale will add a minimum of $26.1 billion to the damages done to Leader Technologies. Willful damages could multiply these damages by three to over $78 billion.

  5. Purchase scoffs at the 3rd Circuit Ruling against the NSA: Both Microsoft and LinkedIn feed data to the NSA according to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Further consolidation of this immoral data surveillance scoffs at U.S. Constitutional rights to property and privacy.

  6. HSBC leaks and The Panama Papers prove convoluted and “illegal as hell” money laundering: Unless and until the SEC is able to vet and approve foreign and domestic sources of cash sloshing around for this deal, it should not be permitted.

Crony capitalism or a Republic?

Our American Constitutional Republic can likely not survive four more years of this lawless crony capitalism, "disaggregation" of governance (Anne-Marie Slaughter A New World Order terminology), secret White House intelligence agency, and takeover of the global digital infrastructure by a secret, self-funding public-private intelligence agency.

The facts are stark:

  1. Hillary Clinton organizes, aids and abets this lawlessness.
  2. Donald Trump does not appear to.

We appear to be at a fork in the road.

    Watch the video and see how smug CIA director Brennan is. There's no humility. No "I work for you" attitude. Its all "shove it" defiance and "I'll tell you what I am going to do."

    CIA director John Brennan told US senators they shouldn't worry about mandatory encryption backdoors hurting American businesses.

    And that's because, according to Brennan, there's no one else for people to turn to: if they don't want to use US-based technology because it's been forced to use weakened cryptography, they'll be out of luck because non-American solutions are simply "theoretical."

    Thus, the choice is American-built-and-backdoored or nothing, apparently.

  2. I greatly admire investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for her new TV show Full Measure to "hold the powerful accountable." Breitbart just posted this interview:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/06/17/sharyl-attkisson-media-distorting-facts-to-serve-world-elites/

    When are these journalists going to admit that AFI (Americans for Innovation) has scooped them about these globalist monsters that they, including Ms. Attkisson, just endlessly speculate about? Is the endless speculation just good for business? Kind of like an attorney that will not fix your legal problem because he or she makes more billable hours by continuing to stir things up?

    Russian security services apparently obtained the emails as part of their investigation into the Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer” — now in U.S. custody in relation to the Clinton email scandal.

    “Guccifer” hacked into the former secretary of state’s email. “For me, it was easy.”

    “There’s a debate going on in the Kremlin between the Foreign Ministry and the Intelligence Services about whether they should release the 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that they have hacked into,” Judge Andrew Napolitano told Megyn Kelly on Monday.

    Besides the obvious:

    (1) Barack Obama infuses everything he does with his hyper-partisan politics and has hidden his lawlessness behind a sycophant Attorney General Holder, now Lynch.

    (2) Both Obama and Lynch attended Harvard Law and hold those well-known insider loyalties.

    (3) Lynch gave the corrupt HSBC bank a dubious pass recently. FBI Director Comey was a director at HSBC. The old-boy backslapping is obvious.

    (4) The Clinton Foundation recevied as much a $81 million from HSBC clients.

    There's no conflict Ms. Lynch? You must think we are really dumb.

    Hillary's Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan donors don't like Elizabeth Warren because she wants the big banks broken up. She says they are utterly corrupt and are pulling down the American Republic's checks and balances against the accumulation of power that has made JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon and Goldman Sachs' Lloyd Blankfein little Hitlers.

    Lee Fang. (Jun. 21, 2016). Attacking Elizabeth Warren? Political Reporters Will Grant You Anonymity. The Intercept.

    THE FAST RISE of Sen. Elizabeth Warren within the Democratic Party has coincided with another phenomenon: the continual use by elite-media journalists of anonymous sources in articles that either criticize Warren directly or warn other politicians about the dangers of embracing her, her political style and the policies she advocates.

    That journalistic trend manifested itself most recently on Monday, in a piece by Ben White in Politico that quoted fully five anonymous sources — including “one top Democratic donor,” “one moderate Washington Democrat” and “one prominent hedge fund manager” — to the effect that Hillary Clinton would be making a major misstep by selecting Warren as her running mate. Warren is an expert in bankruptcy and predatory lending and a leading critic of the financial industry.

    Is the “top Democratic donor” Politico quoted a self-interested executive at Citigroup or Goldman Sachs fearful that Warren would influence policy decisions? We’ll never know. Journalists in this way let powerful individuals take potshots without any fear of accountability and without the reader being able to discern what conflicts of interest might be involved.

    Our President, Hillary Clinton, Our Attorney General, Secretary of State, Vice President, and current senior political staffers are liars........and very dangerous to our country.

    - they speak of Islam as a religion of peace. There is not one Islamic nation at peace. Not one, anywhere on this planet.
    - Islam is not a religion, it is a contained and controlled , " non freedom" , way of life. Islam is a term for a society built around a prophet who said that Allah wants all infidels exterminated.
    - ISIS is not a JV , it has a standing army in six different countries with the mandate to wipe out the planet. Four years ago, it was a rag tag group of savage maniacs driving around in broken down Toyota pick up trucks and beheading innocent people for the rest of the world to see. In just a few short years, they are storming ahead, accumulating land and wealth, all in preparation to kill all of us.
    - "home grown" terrorism is not an issue. Having terrorists in our home country is the issue. What in the heck are we doing to protect ourselves? Trying to take away our personal weapons , that's what.
    - we are allowing thousands of human beings to freely enter our country that have no regard for our way of life , or our lives. At least we could slow it down. I don't hate Muslims.....I hate their hatred of America and our free way of life. Is it to much to ask if we control our borders , enforce our laws, support our law enforcement and military to protect our heirs?
    - this is not a racial issue. It is a way of life issue. Our heirs are in real trouble if we , as a country, do not respond. Once again, they are having ten kids per family so that they have more warriors. Our sweet little fellas are looking for safe spaces and worrying about not offending anyone with their words. Who is going to win that battle?
    - in every case of Islamic savagery, we have underperformed. We are giving the terrorists a wink and a nod to keep going. And they are.
    - ISIS is quite sophisticated. Their internet capabilities are quite extraordinary for a JV military. They have hacked many of our most protected sites and use social networking to their advantage.

    So let's say we wipe ISIS out.....gone from the face of the earth. Will that slow down Islamic radicalization ? NO. It will be an opening for another group to do what their prophet wanted. Read history.....for over 1500 years, Islam has been at war with non Islamic countries as well among themselves.....Sunni vs Shi'ite. Religion of peace ? HA.

    This election is so important. Our future is truly at stake. I just listened to Trump speak about the differences between himself and Hillary. Sounded pretty good to me......elect him, put Hillary in prison.

    Have a great day, TEX

  10. HEADLINES: Deleted data shows how Hillary & Bill shill for Wall Street, Silicon Valley and a secret White House intelligence agency

    Hillary's hackers don't want you to see these proofs of her corruption

    June 22, 2016—Americans for Innovation (AFI) was hacked recently. As the documents were being restored by investigators, they noticed that only documents on certain subjects were targeted.

    The hackers were focused on evidence of Hillary & Bill’s collusion with the NSA, IBM Eclipse Foundation, James P. Chandler, the theft of social networking from Leader Technologies, Wall Street collusion (and speaking fees), UrAsia uranium mining junket, a secret White House intelligence agency (fabricated from Executive Orders), judicial collusion, The Clinton Foundation and Facebook.

    The attached Aug. 12, 2015 post was particularly targeted with document deletions.

    The hackers cleverly disturbed the underlying document links, but not the post on the surface. This prevented the unsuspecting reader from reviewing the underlying evidence; probably causing them to give up in frustration and perhaps doubt.

    This is a new chapter in high tech censorship. We call it “censorship hacking.” Their mantra appears to be “in doubt there is a U.S. presidency to be taken.”

    Hillary Clinton’s suitability to be President is condemned by these findings. It appears her hackers are so worried that they removed it so you can’t read it for yourself. Therefore, we felt it important to put the information in your hands so that you can decide for yourself.

    Sharyl Attkisson. (Jun. 22, 2016). Tortured tale of govt. spending your money rather than agreeing to answer questions on Obamacare

    https://sharylattkisson.com/tortured-tale-of-govt-spending-your-money-rather-than-agreeing-to-answer-questions-on-obamacare/

    In 2013, when the government repeatedly provided false, misleading and incomplete information regarding Obamacare.gov, I filed a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to obtain the facts. Under the law, I should have received the material within about 20 days. It was relevant to news stories I was investigating at the time for CBS News.

    Like many federal agencies, Health and Human Services (HHS) simply broke FOI law. My FOI request went unheeded.

    In ingenuous efforts to resolve the matter after Ms. Attkisson filed a FOIA lawsuit to compel the documents, the State Department lawyer wrote this:

    “We appreciate your thoughts on possible ways to resolve the issue. However, as to the suggestions you offered after the last status conference, the agency has considered them but does not believe they are feasible. The agency remains willing to continue to explore ways to narrow the scope of records at issue in the litigation. Moreover, we also could explore whether your client would be willing to dismiss the case, in which case the agency could continue to process the records at the approximate current processing rate but without the time and expense of court involvement.” –Jeremy Simon, U.S. Department of Justice attorney."

    1. Justice Dept. lawyers say they would rather continue the lawsuit at taxpayer expense than agree to an interview on public matters.

      Rather than sit for an interview, HHS would rather spend its time and taxpayer money in a lawsuit that shouldn’t have been necessary. And why not? It’s not money out of their pocket.

    Hillary Clinton IT specialist Bryan Pagliano invoked the Fifth more than 125 times during a 90-minute, closed-door deposition Wednesday with the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, a source with the group told Fox News.

    The official said Pagliano was working off an index card and read the same crafted statement each time.

    “It was a sad day for government transparency,” the Judicial Watch official said, adding they asked all their questions and Pagliano invoked the Fifth Amendment right not to answer them.

    1. THIS IS PROOF OF EMAIL RACKETEERING AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT OVER HILLARY'S EMAIL SERVER

      This revelation that the State Department information technology department was complicit in supporting Hillary's private email system is devastating proof of widespread criminality among those tasked to protect American secrets.

      The SPAM issue is this. The State Department SPAM system filters out spam so that it is blocked from entering the system. Only emails from trusted servers are allowed in. Since Hillary Clinton's private server was not and never would have been a "trusted" server, no one in the State Department would receive her private email messages at state.gov email recipients unless the State Department IT people adjusted the settings on Hillary's end and their end to make an exception for emails coming from her private server. That act alone shows willful intent to break the rules by a lot of State Department IT people in charge of managing their security and SPAM filtering, which is an ongoing effort.

      http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/judicial-watch-hillary-clinton-state-department-email-scandal/2016/06/22/id/735159/

      Newly released records show the State Department provided Hillary Clinton with an official government email address when she was secretary of state but she declined to use it, opting to employ her private setup instead.

      Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained email records from Clinton aides, and they show Clinton was against using government email.

      Clinton's email address, according to email sent in August 2011, was SSHRC@state.gov.

      "You should be aware that any email would go through the Department's Infrastructure and subject to FOIA searches," a State Department employee wrote to Clinton aide, Monica Hanley.

      During a 2010 exchange between Clinton and her top aide, Huma Abedin, Clinton complains about her emails not being delivered to other State Department employees with government addresses.

      "This is not a good system," Clinton wrote.

      Abedin responded, "We should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam."

      So, the entire IT shop, not just Pagliano knew about Hillary's private email server and did not blow the whistle.

      Michael Biesecker, Ted Bridis. (Jun. 22, 2013). Emails: State Dept. scrambled on trouble on Clinton's server. Associated Press.

      http://bigstory.ap.org/article/7006105d422740f0b4b8675c90f9a154/emails-key-security-features-disabled-clintons-server

      WASHINGTON (AP) — State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem that affected emails from then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features on the government's own systems, according to emails released Wednesday.

      The emails were released under court order Wednesday to the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch, which has sued the State Department over access to public records related to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's service as the nation's top diplomat between 2009 and 2013.

      The emails, reviewed by The Associated Press, show that State Department technical staff disabled software on their systems intended to block phishing emails that could deliver dangerous viruses. They were trying urgently to resolve delivery problems with emails sent from Clinton's private server.

      "This should trump all other activities," a senior technical official, Ken LaVolpe, told IT employees in a Dec. 17, 2010, email. Another senior State Department official, Thomas W. Lawrence, wrote days later in an email that deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin personally was asking for an update about the repairs. Abedin and Clinton, who both used Clinton's private server, had complained that emails each sent to State Department employees were not being reliably received.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/23/business/dealbook/facebook-shareholder-vote-produces-odd-results.html

    Facebook shareholders sent a curious message about the social network’s governance this week. More than half of Facebook owners not named Mark Zuckerberg clicked the corporate equivalent of a “Like” button for just three of the company’s directors.

    Weirdly, shareholders seemed to prefer the venture capitalist Peter Thiel over top executives like Sheryl Sandberg, the company’s chief operating officer, and Mr. Zuckerberg himself. It is a brainteaser that suggests institutional investors [Fidelity, T. Rowe Price, Vanguard, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs] are more inclined to tick boxes than follow their heads.

  15. Our chief judges either ALL become investing geniuses the moment they put on the black robe, or they are on the Cartel's insider trading club. I wonder which it is? OK fine, AFI has proven the latter. They are criminals in black robes pretending to be impartial.

    At least six — and perhaps as many as all eight — U.S. Supreme Court justices are worth at least $1 million, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of new financial disclosures.

    Topping the list is Stephen Breyer, who is worth at least $6.1 million — and possibly as much as $16 million going into 2016. Breyer's top holdings include stock in publishing company Pearson PLC, as well as property in New Hampshire and the Caribbean island of Nevis.

    Chief Justice John Roberts boasts the second-highest net worth: at least $4.2 million.
