Acer rolls out a curved, super-wide display with AMD's gaming tech

Engadget - You can get desktop PC displays that are curved, super-wide and gaming-friendly, but all three at once? That's tricky. Thankfully, Acer thinks it has an answer. The company has just launched the 34-inch XR341CK in the US, giving you a curvy, 21:9 aspect ratio LCD with AMD's anti-tearing FreeSync tech built-in. So long as you have a fast-enough gaming rig (including newer AMD graphics, if you want FreeSync), you'll get an extra-immersive canvas for your first-person shooters and racing sims.   Read More

America’s Loss of Sovereignty and Soul According to Satan’s Plan

Cynthia Quinn - On June 19th, exactly one week before the Republican controlled Senate gave Barack Hussein Obama the fast track trade authority to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership, handing over US sovereignty to multinational corporations and New World Order globalists, about 15,000 bees swarmed around the main Senate entrance of the U.S. Capitol Building.
In the Bible, bees are always used to describe the enemy of God’s people. For example, in Psalm 118: 10-12, David describes enemy nations that swarm around him like bees, but in the name of the Lord, he declares they will be destroyed. Just as David was surrounded by bees, Americans are surrounded by evil, bee-like bureaucrats  who laden us with sweet honey while secretly stinging us in sticky dealings behind closed doors. “For the lips of a strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.” (Prov. 5:3-4) One bee sting can be an irritation, but many can prove to be fatal. Was this preternatural occurrence a message and warning from God? I believe it was.
In an act of contempt, treachery and treason against the American people, the sin of bribery was committed by both Congress and the Senate. In order to pass the highly secretive TPP fast-track, corporations “prostituted” representatives and senators for a yes vote. In total, almost $200 million dollars was distributed among Congressional lawmakers with Speaker John Boehner receiving a shocking $5.3 million for his “yea,” making him the highest paid congressional traitor in history. In comparison, a paltry $1.15 million dollars swayed the “yea” Senate vote. Goldman Sachs was the lead pimp with a total of $195,550 in “donations.” Exodus 23:8 states, “You shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of the just.”
Unelected corporate boards, Obama, and eventually the United Nations (you can see that coming) will now control almost every aspect of human activity including our individual rights, internet freedom and even the rule of law itself, edging America alarmingly closer to surrendering to the New World Order and global governance. The United States Congress will no longer have legislative control over things like immigration, trade and currency, rendering it completely useless in the eyes of it’s constituency.
It is time for the irrelevant Congress and Senate to shut down and stop the $60 million dollar restoration of the Capitol Building dome; its cracks and deficiencies better represent the current bureaucrats housed under its rusted roof. The politicians need to go home, get real jobs, and try to live under the same constrictive, anti-American, debilitating rules they have enacted. The few honorable public servants who have worked for ‘We the People’ should return to their home states and enact legislation allowing their states to secede from the Union. Those states that secede and revert back to righteous governing and laws based on God’s moral principles will sow exorbitant economic benefits and at the same time reap God’s blessings and protection.
In another alarming act of betrayal against the American people, the Supreme Court, in charge of the Judicial Branch of government and responsible for interpreting the law and Constitution, has openly succumbed to judicial decisions which are manifestations of personal predilections and biases reflecting Obama’s viewpoint and not that of the Constitution. In step with Obama’s “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” rules, his executive order to forcefully regulate ‘diversity’ in white suburbs and pressure wealthy communities to build “affordable” housing in their midst, the Supreme Court, on June 25th, ruled that plaintiffs can now just point to the racial makeup of a neighborhood and infer that discrimination must have happened in order to bring a lawsuit and force communities to re-engineer themselves. Justice Kennedy calls it “unconscious prejudice.” The American people call it “conscious communism.” This is just more federal social engineering that will not only promote racial quotas in white neighborhoods, but will force upscale communities to house the nation’s burgeoning population of illegal immigrants.
On the same day, the Supreme Court upheld the current distribution of Obamacare subsidies, once again ignoring the letter of the law. Justice Antonin Scalia dissented, calling the decision “interpretive jiggery-pokery and said that words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State, is ‘established by the State.'” Chief Justice Roberts who provided the key vote chuckled when Scalia said, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.” Americans are not amused.
The SCOTUS’ three-run homer, the legalization of same sex marriage, will tragically impact and impair the American way of life by destroying its core,God-based family values. This historical judgement in favor of sodomized marriage took place on June 26th. Coincidentally, on that same date back in 1945, exactly 70 years ago, the demonically controlled United Nations, the axis of evil and snake head of the New World Order was chartered! Did the UN celebrate two milestones that evening while watching the White House light up like a colorful clown dressed in drag, a rainbow light show that had to have been orchestrated far in advance? God only knows how the first gay president and his transvestite wife celebrated in their bedroom!
Welcome to Obamaland, home to a Muslim, Leninist, Marxist, gay, dictator whose primary concern is to instigate race wars, gender wars, religious wars, climate wars, educational wars, military type police state wars, food and water wars, and historical symbolism wars against his own “domestic terrorists.” In these politically correct “color war” times we live in, the White House should be painted black, symbolizing the true nature of a black supremacist occupant who cannot get over the fact that his winning two presidential elections broke the racist color divide once and for all. There are many unemployed, homeless Veterans, both black and white who would gladly volunteer to paint the White House black and they would actually be doing Obama a favor! After all, now that every homophobic Muslim in the world has seen the White House lit up like a gay fairy, the Jihadist testosterone must be overflowing with malevolent intent, so a good thick coat of black paint would provide a more stealth environment and keep our gay president out of harms way.
The time has come to shut the sycophant Supreme Court down and hand the keys over to Barack. Let him charge admission and utilize the legal Chamber as an historic, “supreme” wedding venue where sacrilegious marital events can take place complete with devil spirits as witnesses, free of charge! Few know that the central part of the Supreme Court building that houses the Justice Chamber is approprately modeled after the Temple of Artemis, once located in Ephesus near the modern town of Selcuk in present-day Turkey.The apostle John prayed publicly in the Temple of Artemis exorcising its demons and “of a sudden the altar of Artemis split in many pieces and half the temple fell down, instantly converting the Ephesians who wept, prayed or took flight.” No charge for any teary conversion there as well!
The ancient goddess Justice who will return Satan’s reign adorns the base of the lampposts located at the front of the Supreme Court’s plaza. To the left of the steps leading to the main entrance is a seated female figure holding in her hand a small figure of Justice, blindfolded, with a scale in her right hand, a representation of secular law and pagan justice that will someday prophetically surrender to a Satanic system and a New World Order. Inside the U.S. Supreme Court Chamber is a marble image of the Prophet Muhammad. Sculpted in a frieze, the Muhammad statue carries a sword and the Quran and stands in the company of more than a dozen other “great lawgivers of history.” In the 1990’s controversies erupted that culminated in calls by some Islamic leaders to sandblast the statue’s face off the chamber wall because Islam discourages depictions of Muhammad. Eventually, the controversy was laid to rest, in part through a fatwa. Should the prophet of a foreign theocratic religion with its own justice system, Shariah Law, the strict Muslim code of law and morality, be featured in our Justice Chamber? Is it a foreboding sign of our legal future?
For once, I agree with the Muslims. Sandblast Muhammad and replace him with a more appropriate representative of the court. An image of the deity Homo Deus Antinous, a homosexual god who blesses whomever he chooses and serves the devil would be a perfect fit!
“They swarmed around me like bees, but they died out as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them off. Psalm 118:12
“Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to you!” Psalm102:1

Double trouble? IRS lawyer now heads Clinton email production

Politico - A year ago, Catherine Duval was embroiled in the scandal over former IRS official Lois Lerner’s lost emails.

Now the top government attorney is heading up another document project in the cross hairs of Congress: the State Department’s release of Hillary Clinton’s emails and Libya documents to the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

And Republican GOP investigators are raising red flags, accusing her and the State Department of stonewalling Congress by narrowly interpreting document requests and failing to disclose important information.

“The person in charge of document production at two different places on two different scandals has not been completely straightforward with us,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a top IRS and Benghazi investigator, in an interview. “She was at the IRS when there was a preservation order and subpoena — and documents were destroyed. She is now at the State Department, where we were supposed to get [certain] information, and we know that some of the emails were not given.”    Read More

FBI investigating 11 attacks on San Francisco-area Internet lines - Serious security implications

USA Today - The FBI is investigating at least 11 physical attacks on high-capacity Internet cables in California's San Francisco Bay Area dating back a year, including one early Tuesday morning.
Agents confirm the latest attack disrupted Internet service for businesses and residential customers in and around Sacramento, the state's capital.
FBI agents declined to specify how significantly the attack affected customers, citing the ongoing investigation. In Tuesday's attack, someone broke into an underground vault and cut three fiber-optic cables belonging to Colorado-based service providers Level 3 and Zayo.
The attacks date back to at least July 6, 2014, said FBI Special Agent Greg Wuthrich.
"When it affects multiple companies and cities, it does become disturbing," Wuthrich said. "We definitely need the public's assistance."
The pattern of attacks raises serious questions about the glaring vulnerability of critical Internet infrastructure, said JJ Thompson, CEO of Rook Security, a security consulting and services provider in Indianapolis.   Read More

Why Are Ben Carson And Donald Trump Rising? It's Obvious

Daniel Greenfield -

Most Americans hate public speaking. Carson and Trump are good at it in their own ways

Personality was never a non-issue in politics. Even in hereditary monarchies. It has become much more of an issue when candidates are constantly televised.
As two terms of Obama have shown us, people don't necessarily choose the most qualified candidates. Articles and posts that ask why Ben Carson and Donald Trump are rising, are asking the obvious. Neither of them may have much experience in politics, but they're media naturals.
And people tend to prefer seemingly natural public speakers, the kind who can just sit down and rattle off their thoughts and make you pay attention, to professionally qualified politicians. That's especially true today when the Republican pros are loathed by their own base.   Read More

Al-Shabaab Jihadists Vow to Attack 'Non-Believers' During Ramadan, Give Christians 'True Taste of Jihad'

The al-Shabaab terror group, which back in April murdered 152 people, mostly Christian students, have vowed to attack "non-believers" throughout the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a pledge echoing ISIS' threats.

Christian Post - The al-Shabaab terror group, which back in April murdered 152 people, mostly Christian students, have vowed to attack "non-believers" throughout the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a pledge echoing ISIS' threats.

News 24 reported that at least 15 people were killed on Monday in clashes between al-Shabaab and Somali and African Union troops near the southern port of Kismayo, though eight Islamic militants were also killed in the battle.

AFP noted that another 80 soldiers were killed on Friday in a separate attack on the Leego base in southern Somalia, with the jihadists claiming to have brought back 60 of the bodies.

"Al-Shabaab has consistently shown its ability to strike in urban areas and regroup in rural bases. It will take much longer to defeat the group and require Somalia's security services to be significantly improved," Ahmed Soliman, Horn of Africa analyst at the London-based Chatham House, told the Bloomberg news.   Read More

US Official Claims Reports of Obama Sending Secret Letter to Iran Are 'Not Accurate"

Arutz Sheva - US President Barack Obama recently sent a private message to the Iranian leadership via Iraq's prime minister, as pressure mounts for the sides to reach a deal over Tehran's nuclear program by June 30.

With just one day to go before the deadline, Iran's Hamshahri daily claims that "one of the leaders of a neighboring country" took the message from Obama to officials in Tehran, according to AFP.

The paper went on to suggest that the leader in question was Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who met Obama at the G7 summit in Germany on June 8, and visited Tehran just over a week later, where he met Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani.   Read More

But, a U.S. official says reports of Obama letter to Iran are 'not accurate'

Obama to host Nigeria’s sharia-committed president as 9 sentenced to death for blaspheming Mohammed

via Creeping Sharia:

(AFP) – US President Barack Obama will welcome his Nigerian counterpart to Washington next month, the White House announced Thursday, a symbolic show of solidarity after the country’s first ever democratic transition.

“President Obama will host Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House,” on July 20, the White House said.

The visit will mark “our support for the Nigerian people following their historic democratic elections and peaceful transfer of power,” a statement added.

Meanwhile, Nigerian court sentences nine to death for blasphemy

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) – Nine people have been sentenced to death in northern Nigeria after being found guilty of blasphemy, a court clerk and the head of the religious police told AFP on Friday.    Read More

Revealed: Feds predicted surge of illegals, see another 127,000 this year

Washington Examiner - Despite claims the administration was caught off guard, the White House and four Cabinet departments predicted last year's surge of at least 60,000 illegal juveniles over the U.S.-Mexico border and expect it to more than double to 127,000 this year, according to an internal document.

A 24-page administration PowerPoint for congressional appropriators dated April 22, 2014 bluntly stated that border arrivals of "unaccompanied alien children" would rise "by nearly a factor of 10" in 2014 to 60,000 and jump to 127,000 "if these growth rates continue." It is shown below.

Indications are that this year's surge won't meet that record number, but will be the second highest in recent history.

The document and accompanying graphs, provided by congressional sources, also set a price tag of $2 billion "to accommodate" the juveniles, some members of the MS-13 crime gang, this year.    Read More

ISIS Threatens Mass Slaughter of Christians in Israel Before End of Ramadan

Christian Post - Islamic militants claiming to be representatives of terror group ISIS in Jerusalem have threatened to "cleanse" Israel of all Christians and "non-believers" unless they leave the country. The extremists are accusing Christians of encouraging Muslims to abandon their religion.

"Those who work with the Zionists also encourage Muslims to leave their religion and become more secular and open, and they spread evil," Arabic-language leaflets warns, according to The Jerusalem Post. "They take these Muslims away from us. ... We know where they are, but we need help to find them all — all those Christian collaborators."

The message continues: "ISIS soldiers will work to kill these people so this country is clean of them and ... will clean this country and the Muslim Quarter from these Christians during this holy Ramadan."   Read More

FBI Investigating Black Church Fires - At Least 5 Churches Have Been Torched

(Newser) – "Churches are burning again in the United States, and the symbolism of that is powerful." So writes Emma Green at the Atlantic after at least five mostly black churches went up in flames over the past week following the Charleston church massacre. 

Investigators say the blaze that badly burnt God's Power Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia, was not caused by likely problems like electrical malfunction, and WBTV reports that a fire at Briar Creek Road Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, has already been ruled arson. The pastor there, Mannix Kinsey, says he forgives the arsonist and hopes it won't be deemed a hate crime: "Just the climate," he says. "We all have to consider what else do we need to do to actually be able to work together."   Read More

ISIS Starts Second Year of its 'Caliphate'

Arutz Sheva - What has the brutal terrorist regime accomplished since being formed last June 29? Lots of Muslim murder and mayhem.

The Islamic State (ISIS) group's "caliphate" enters its second year Monday with the jihadists expanding their territory in Syria and Iraq and their global reach by claiming attacks in Tunisia and Kuwait.

The extremist group headed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced on June 29, 2014 that it was reviving a form of Islamic government known as the "caliphate," pledging it would "remain and expand."

In the year since, the group has gained more territory in Syria and Iraq despite an attempted fightback supported by a US-led coalition air campaign.

It has also attracted a string of affiliates - in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan and elsewhere - and sought to project fear on an international scale.    Read More

Missing Document From FISA Court Docket Suggests Yet Another Undisclosed Bulk Records Program

TechDirt -

from the given-the-preponderance-of-spy-programs,-why-not dept


The thing about transparency is that it's not just about what you reveal. It's also about what you choose to keep hidden. In the ongoing docket for the government's 2015 bulk records requests, there appears to be a missing document. 

BR 15-75 (BR = "business records," "15" = 2015) -- the government's request to have 180 days' worth of "business [records] as usual" collections before the limitations of the USA Freedom Act kick in -- is present. So is the opinion addressing the repercussions of the passage of USA Freedom, which is denoted as "BR 15-77, BR 15-78." But where -- and what -- is BR 15-76? 

Patrick Toomey at Just Security has a theory:
It’s hard to be certain, but it’s likely that BR 15-76 is an application to restart the phantom CIA bulk financial records program or another undisclosed bulk collection program. Beginning in late 2013, multiple outlets reported on the CIA’s bulk collection of Americans’ international money transfer records from companies like Western Union and Moneygram. Other outlets stated at the time that the CIA program overlapped significantly with efforts to collect “financial transaction data” by both the NSA and the Treasury Department. And according to the New York Times, beyond the CIA program, several officials “said more than one other bulk collection program has yet to come to light.”   Read More

#BloodyFriday - ISIS Delivers On Promise Of Violent Ramadan, Threatens Continued Violence

Vocative - ISIS militants had vowed to make Ramadan, Islam’s holy month that began last week, a “month of conquests,” and Friday they were congratulating themselves on having started to deliver on that promise with threats of continued violence in the three weeks still left to go. Just days ago, ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani called on supporters to launch more attacks, telling followers that those ‘martyred’ during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan receive greater blessings than those who die during other times of the year.

At least three separate attacks caused the deaths of dozens on Friday in Tunisia, France and Kuwait. Islamic State supporters heralded the killings as “Bloody Friday” in discussions across secretive online forums and social media, an analysis by Vocativ revealed. The group has made only one official claim of responsibility so far, for the bombing of a Shiite Muslim mosque in Kuwait City which killed at least 15 people.

Friday’s killings come at the end of a week marred by ISIS showcasing its brutality. Islamic State fighters launched a two-pronged offensive in the Syrian cities of Kobani and Hasaka on Thursday, massacring as many as 146 civilians according to new reports, including women and children. The group released two execution videos that John Horgan, a psychologist and terrorism researcher at Georgia State University, told Vocativ were “sadism at a clinical level.”    Read More
