Google deliberately stole information but executives ‘covered it up’ for years | Mail Online:

The programmer that did the program says he warned Google to check with privacy lawyers because the program steals information from personal computers as the Street View cars drove along, but Google says the FCC and the Justice Department gave them a pass because they determined, so they say, that Google “did not want or intend to use this payload data. Indeed, so they say Google never used it in any of our products or services.”

The programmer has also invoked his Fifth Amendment rights to refuse to answer questions about the program or about Street View. He may also be avoiding answering, in my opinion, due to some strong warnings from parties unknown.

Reading between the lines, at least from what’s in this report, we see that Google probably DID use it in some way other than directly using the information in their products or services. Did they sell any of the information to the NSA maybe, or to the Pentagon‘s now renamed Total Awareness project?

I’m going to start looking for email alternatives.

Paul: Shrinking dollar behind higher gas prices » Local News » The Richmond Register:

Gasoline is not more scarce than it was a year ago,” he said. “The value of your dollar is shrinking because your government runs up a massive debt and then prints money to pay it.”

Working-class people, the elderly on fixed incomes and new graduates entering the work force need to realize, “Big government is not your friend,” the senator said.

“When they say, ‘We’re going to give you this. It’s free.’ It’s not free. They’re destroying the dollar,” he said. “This year you’ll pay four bucks for a gallon of gas. Next year you’ll pay five.”

Looks like the gas pump is beginning the charge of the flood of dollars brought to us by the Federal Reserve and the politicians who promise to take care of you and solve the problem of poverty.

The problem is that they create more poverty instead. All Americans are feeling the pinch of inflation, we are all finding it harder to make ends meet.

If you know a  young woman (or not so young) considering induced abortion, let her know she can put the baby up for adoption to one of the thousands of couples on waiting lists and so still have “her” life, and bless the baby and bless two loving parents who would like to have a child, and avoid the emotional wounds and pain and regrets and the increased health risks for an artificially induced termination:

Tell Stan to have ready this for the co-worker to pass on to this niece in case of remorse, which happens frequently:

It is a web site put up by women and for the tens of thousands of women who repented of their abortions, and plead with those considering induced abortion to reconsider for their own sake, as well as for the sake of the baby in the womb.

The web site links to the horrifying experience of Julia Holcomb, who was coerced into a saline abortion at 17, result of a dalliance with the Aerosmith lead singer.

If the champions of “choice” and “women’s reproductive rights” and “sexploitation” would demand an end to the force abortions in China and would work harder to expose the cases of heavy-hand of male pressure on women to terminate their babies’ growth inside, they would leave themselves less exposed to the obvious charge of hypocrisy and false flag ideology. They assault women’s rights every time.

Pictures of babies in the womb here (a rose by any other name):

The baby has a heartbeat at only 18 days from conception.

The feminist case against abortion:


More, four stories that represent tens of thousands of others across the country, just among pro-life activists, who are adoptees that were conceived in a rape:

One is Laura Tedder, whose biological mother made several attempts to abort her and who suffered from birth as a result from a form of cancer that lost her one eye, plus a number of surgeries and treatments. The birth mother dropped her off at two days old at her brother’s house, who adopted her, and she said this:

When Laura was able to speak with her birth mother years later, she told her, “I’m just calling to thank you so much for giving me to your brother. What a wonderful life I’ve had! I just want to thank you so much for giving me life; God bless you!” Though Laura’s birth mother has repeatedly rejected her efforts at reconciliation, Laura said in her online testimony, “I have forgiven her and harbor no resentment. Any people in similar circumstances with a parent should let go of their resentment sooner so they can reconcile before it is too late.”

Nobody, absolutely nobody, has been able to tell me what is different about a baby that is two inches apart from point A to point B where killing it at point B is killing a baby and at point A it is a “choice”.


Open letters from women who have had abortions and want to encourage other women who are pregnant:

The link between abortion and breast cancer has been shown in several medical studies:

“MasterCare International an international group of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was presented with the evidence of the link between abortion and breast cancer at its international conference in Rome in October 2004 by Dr Joel Brind’s research group.  The medical explanation and the epidemiological evidence convinced our  group that there is a significant increase in breast cancer risk after induced abortion, especially before the first full term pregnancy.  This evidence has been denied by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other researchers.  Recently ten studies have been published in an attempt to discredit Brind’s conclusion.

“In turn Brind has examined these ten studies and in a peer reviewed paper published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Vol 10, No 4, Winter 2005, <>) he  has shown that they have serious methodological weaknesses and flaws and therefore do not invalidate the conclusion that there is a increased risk of breast cancer.

“Women have a basic right to know of this increased risk of breast cancer and it is unacceptable that the information should be denied to them by the medical and cancer research  establishments. MaterCare International as an organization of women’s health specialists  recognizes its responsibilities in this matter and will do all it can to publish this evidence.”

This is NOT good.

They want to nibble away at the free exchange we have on the Internet.

Preemptive crime is itself a crime. These things have built-in slippery slopes. Shut down file-sharing sites instead of prosecuting actual violators is like putting you in jail because somebody committed murder on your front lawn.

Here’s an activist platform from the Electronic Freedom Foundation:
