What Pooty Is Up To Now

Well Well Well! Владимир Владимирович and his wife are getting a divorce!

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced his 29-year marriage to his his wife, Lyudmila, was over – after removing his wedding band as they watched the ballet together.
The 60-year-old and his 55-year-old wife broke the news of the end of the 29-year marriage in an obviously staged TV interview after a night at the ballet.
Before the ballet at the Kremlin Palace, Putin was pictured wearing his wedding ring, but he must have removed it during the performance because he was not wearing it by the time he left and was interviewed.

And right on cue, he has a so-called “mop-up” operation against the Mohammedans (not that they didn’t deserve it) to divert the Russian People’s attention:

MOSCOW (al-Reuters) – Russian police rounded up 300 people at a Muslim prayer room in Moscow on Friday after President Vladimir Putin ordered a crackdown on radical Islamists ahead of next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Putin has put security forces on high alert to safeguard the Games in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, which lies near to mainly Muslim southern provinces where Russia is battling an Islamist insurgency that has targeted Moscow.
“We must fight back hard against extremists who, under the banners of radicalism, nationalism and separatism, are trying to split our society,” Putin said.
“The policy in the fight against corruption, crime and the insurgency has to be carried out harshly and consistently,” Putin told a meeting of security force officers.
“The situation in the North Caucasus should be kept under particular control.”

And in case you’re wondering, this person may have caused the breakup of ol’ Pooty’s marriage:

Why he traded in the old battleaxe for a newer model!

    It’s character though that makes a relationship work. Some room for respect and love. We tend to be too visual about what love is. In some people visual reflects an inner organizations that grows well, in others it hides a disorganization that leads to constant anger and needs a lot of healing.

    NSA whistleblower is identified

    Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former CIA employee, is the source behind the major intelligence leaks of the past week, according to the man who first reported on the the government’s surveillance programs last week, the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald. Snowden’s identity has been confirmed by The Washington Post.

    In a story posted by the Guardian on Sunday afternoon, Greenwald and two other reports reveal Snowden, who currently works for the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton but has contracted for years with the National Security Agency, as the source of his information.

    The Guardian reports it is naming Snowden at his own request. Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. had announced Saturday that the NSA launched a Justice Department investigation into who leaked the information.

    @ Iron Fist:
    The alternatives 30 years ago were bleak compared to today. Then, when a heart wentinto a lethal rhythm you had to rely on a bystander calling 911 and help arriving in time to deliver the appropriate shock. Now, the docs drop a little shocky box in your chest that isn’t much larger than a standard pacemaker. The box continuously analyzes a heart’s rhythm and, if need be, shocks the heart back to normal.

    I look at it as a guardian angel in my right upper chest watching over me.
    I live a normal life with miniminal restrictions on my activities.

    That is the same hope I have for young Jake. That he can develop, grow and explore and not feel hampered by a bad ticker.

    I don’t disagree. The States are taking marijuana back from the Feds to a degree already. All our drug policy is badly flawed. Think heroin should be illegal? Why, then, aren’t we burining poppy fields in Afghanistan? It doesn’t make sense to let them produce heroin in Afghanistan and then try to interdict it as it is being smuggled into the United States. Are there problems with legalizing drugs? Certainly, but most of thise problems already exist with regard to drugs. Legalizing them are only going to make them marginally worse, while maintianing that drugs are illefgal ensures that anyone taking drugs becomes a criminal.

    @ Iron Fist:
    It’s already a predominantly state issue. The state/fed ‘legality’ issue is secondary. It’s left in place to allow jurisdictional choice.
    i.e. The guy with 1200 lbs of pot in an airplane gets charged federally while the guy with 2 lbs gets the state involvement.
    On the back side, the bulk of court mandated drug programs are administered by the states. That’s a revenue source, a lucrative one they’ll not easily give up.
    Personally I think all drugs should be legal. It should be illegal to use a dime of public money to rehab anyone.
    Let natural selection run it’s course. Drug addiction won’t go away but it may return to it’s lesser levels of the past.

    @ poteen:

    Drug addiction is a terrible thing, but I see no indication that outlawing drugs has done anything other than make those who are willing to break the law rich. It is the law of supply and demand. As long as there is the demand, and they are willing to pay them money to make it worth the risks, there will be supply. We have tried making the risks associated with the drug trade as heavy as we can, but the money to be made is just too great. Legalize it, tax it, and use the tax money from the drug trade itself to pay for rhab and treatment. Treat drugs pretty much like we treat alcohol now.

    The problem I see is that, if what I understand is true, the NSA and/or CIA is plying its tradecraft on US citizens within the United States proper. I don’t think that is legal. Their perview starts at the coast and extends to the ends of the earth, but once you’re within the US proper, if you are a citizen their jurisdiction over you, your conversations, etc. is zero. This hasn’t stopped the NSA from compiling volumous records about US Citizens inside America. I’d say that makes the NSA a rogue agency. That is a greater threat to us than al Qaeda.

    I agree with the thought but the realization will be more than difficult.
    Legal, domestic drug availability won’t put the cartels out of business, as you said, way too much money involved. The violence in Mexico will travel here. The market is here. Diminish the market and cartel (and state) profits diminish along with their power. My point is diminish it through attrition.

    I might also add that all this domestic spying is not being used to catch domestic terrorists. Tamerlan Tsarnaev did everythinh but tattoo Terrorist Asshole on his forehead. He went to Dagestan to train. He was abusive towards his wife, which alone could have gotten him deported. If that wasn’t enough, the Russians warned us against him. We did one interview where he was asked pro-forma if he was a terrorist, he said no, and we were done with him.

    Yet we are supposed to believe that they got all of Verizon’s phone records to go after terrorists? That doesn’t pass the laugh test. THey aren’t going after the Muslim terrorists. They are going after the Tea PArty “terrorists”. We can see that from the IRS.

    THey aren’t going after the Muslim terrorists.

    Now, now…there are no Muslim terrorists.

    There are only terrorists who happen to follow a misguided strain of Islam, which in no way motivates them to try to kill us.

    Even that is hazardous. Osama bin Laden used a personal courior for that very reason, and it was through his personal courior that he was tracked down. Smoke signals? We can get the bad guys wiithout having a nationwide dragnet in place. Which raises the question “Why is there a nationwide dragnet in place?” I don’ tknow, but I would not be surprised by anything the Obama Administration did. And something to think about. They’ve been reading everybody’s email. IF there is dirt to be found on anyone inWashington, it is likely the Obama Admininstration has it. I read a rumor the other day that this kind of illegal intercept is how they found out about Petraeus’ mistress. With that said, everybody in Washington is corrupt. Obama most likely has dirt on everybody. Something to keep in mind as we see people who we would expect to think otherwise come out in support of the Administratio9n.

    And, Snowden flees from the US to report on the activities because of fears of retribution.

    It’s a bit of a quandary for me.

    Obama has low regard for the U.S Constitution,
    which he made evident in a 2011 NPR interview.
    He thinks that there are too many negative rights.
    You know, like protections against government.
    Obama doesn’t really like you protected from him.

    Because the two party evil money cult in Washington D.C. left the boders wide open now for 50 years as well as no checks on any overstayed visas etal and now 20,000,000 unknowns rome about the U.S.A. together with some thousands of hard core terrorist who the Mexican drug cartel operated coyotes smuggled into the heart lands.

    Now they use this prior crime/crimes to demand that they have every phone number, every e-mail, every blog post tracked.

    Prayers for Jake. His parents must be in agony.

    Billy Kristol said something on Chris Wallace today. I don’t know if he’s correct or not but I thought I’d put it out there. The NSA was permitted to COLLECT data 3 mos at a time, but it was not allowed to QUERY the data w/o probable cause and a court order.

    Thoughts?

    As for this Snowden guy, I’m withholding judgement. I find it ironic that he ends up in a communist country to protect his ass. As to someone upthread who wondered if he consulted a lawyer first -- it would probably have to be someone who had the appropriate clearance, so I doubt it.

    @ Iron Fist: We could put video cameras up everywhere and geo tag every single crime committer and track them on a map. We don’t do it because of the loss of freedom. So when someone says “you have nothing to worry about we are only pulling up bad guy information” Are the tea party perps bad guys? Does the IRS need the NSA information? New managers usually mean new people without any learned boundaries.

    What is needed is a privacy law where people own their phone number and their email address and elect to how they want to share it. Only a real warrant per person would circumvent. Sure use the NSA tech outside the US. But don’t turn that kind of information monopoly power into an internal drug that people can’t resist using. See IRS perps.

    @ 82 eaglesoars: That doesn’t happen. I have been privy too lots of secret info and always ran into system admins pocketing information whereever they could. There are no ethics standards for IT workers. Only if they get caught after the fact. If there is a database with juicy information in it there are people querying it left and right. And ocnly anonymously losing some of the data accidentally. wink. wink.

    The IRS is an example. The FBI Petraeus scandal is an example.

    And you will get into technical description as to what exactly a query is? You will run into the scenario that as long as the paperwork wasn’t filled out then no query ever really occurred. And it’s a query only if a certain field is present and it leaves the office by door B instead of door C. It’s an information monopoly system that will get games because of the power it represents. The Chinese will suck that data right out of the NSA.

    I agree. I’ve seen it too. Hell, on the orders of a supervisor, I’ve DONE it. My point was only that Kristol maintained the MSM was not correctly reporting the details -- and I don’t know if he has those ‘details’ correct.

    oh goody

    NSA memo pushed to ‘rethink’ 4th Amendment

    In one key paragraph, NSA wrote that its new phase meant the U.S. must reevaluate its approach toward signals intelligence, or “SIGINT,” and the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.

    “The Fourth Amendment is as applicable to eSIGINT as it is to the SIGINT of yesterday and today,” it wrote. “The Information Age will however cause us to rethink and reapply the procedures, policies and authorities born in an earlier electronic surveillance environment.”

    They have a link to the memo
