USA Freedom Act: passed by relative landslide this week in GOP House, awaiting Senate action, reportedly ends direct state bulk collection of phone records revealed (again) by Snowden, forces telecoms into bulk collection role
Second Circuit Appeals court ruled this month that the Patriot Act did not, in fact, authorize the massive vacuuming up of people's communication data undertaken by U.S. spy agencies, despite ubiquitous, off-record claims to the contrary by "the intelligence community"
Court records can give the public some idea as to how the telecom oligopolies are responding to both of these events, indications being that a likely scenario is the largely unabated supply of communications information to the government
On May 31st of this year, Section 215 of the Patriot Act --used to support claims that nationwide, communications dragnet collection is authorized by law-- is expiring
Cyberwar-- NSA's dual responsibility of defending US networks and acquiring offensive capability for exploits like Stuxnet.
Commentary from Marcy Wheeler, Stuart Zechman and Jay Ackroyd. Political satire from Culture of Truth.
The 2015 Virtually Speaking Media Panel: Andrew Jerrell Jones, Avedon Carol, Cliff Schecter, David Dayen, Dave Johnson, David Waldman, digby, Gaius Publius, Joan McCarter, Marcy Wheeler, RJ Eskow, Stuart Zechman. Alternates: Susan Madrak, Sara Robinson, Spocko, Charles Lenchner
Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system. Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues. Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.
Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans. Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers. A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.

Head for Your Prefontal Cortex through Higher Brain Living! Remarkably, the videos show that following a patterned set of light touches to a reclining body, the body begins to move in a coordinated, patterned rhythm, movement that accompanies a person accessing the ability to live in the Higher Brain. Decisions are easier, confidence soars, and you can figure things out that have been stumping you! I’m looking forward to this visit with Zach Polsfuss.
If, indeed, we’re entering a new way of being human, then we need to learn to access new parts of ourselves, relate differently to our minds and bodies, and change our relationship with ourselves. Chiropractor Dr. Michael Cotton has devised and teaches one method for shifting energy into the prefrontal cortex, awakening human potential, for a lifetime. The Higher Brain Living® technique is a revolutionary gentle-touch process where a trained facilitator activates specific points in the body in a specific sequence with specific timing, creating a surge of energy from the primal fear-based lower brain into the prefrontal cortex, the seat of the Higher Brain. Zach Polfuss is a trained facilitator. Click here to visit Zach Polsfuss' LinkdIn page.

moment of anguish. I was in my office filling out divorce paperwork and trying to hold myself together. In the eight years I’d been married, my wife and I had seen three different marriage counselors. Any progress we made didn’t last long. The topic of divorce had come up more times than I could count. We seemed to be constantly on the edge of a breakup. The turmoil had peaked and I was ready to give up. But I loved my step kids. Leaving her meant losing them, so I’d fought to make it work.I was emotionally wrung out as I tried to focus on the divorce form. But that day my feelings for my family were stronger than my frustration. My stubbornness was stronger than my feeling of being unappreciated. I needed to find a way to make it work. I didn’t know where to begin but I knew I couldn’t give up. I pushed the papers through the shredder and began a mission to figure out what was broken. This focus became a multi-year project, which shed light on the difficult challenges Stepdads have to overcome.
