For The Record

The Muslim Brotherhood Spring (I Told You So)

 

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  

We recall the tsunami of praise, Hosan­nas and Hal­lelu­jahs gush­ing forth from the world’s media and polit­i­cal pun­ditry, hail­ing the “Arab Spring” as the dawn­ing of a new enlight­en­ment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–-fundamentally. We, on the other hand, were warn­ing that this phe­nom­e­non was an Under­ground Reich oper­a­tion. Events in Egypt and Turkey have borne out our hypoth­e­sis in grimly con­vinc­ingly fash­ion. The Mus­lim Broth­er­hood ascended to power in Egypt and off­shoots are spread­ing car­nage through­out the Mid­dle East at this time.

FTR #787

Knock, Knock? Who’s There? Either a Strongbox or a Wall Safe. It’s Undecided. In this post we're going to take a look at the recent Supreme Court ruling on 4th amendment rights and smartphones and how this ruling could impact the ongoing debate over NSA spying. We're also going to look at the other side of the coin: the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination during a time when encryption tools strong enough to thwart law enforcement and the NSA are becoming increasingly mainstream.
