HuffPo reveals in a piece today  further documents released by whistle-blower Edward Snowden that reveal the NSA has been spying on the porn habits of radicalized Islamic fundamentalists who have been delivering speeches and training in radicalizing others. The documents lay out pretty specific tactics for analyzing and assessing an individuals visits to sexually explicit websites, and using the knowledge of this hypocritical practice as a leverage piece against jihadists to undermine their message of radicalism.  From the article: Stewart Baker, a one-time general counsel for the NSA and a top Homeland Security official in the Bush administration, said...

“Nuclear” Option More Dental X-Ray, Less Hiroshima

Earlier today, Senator Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear” option to eliminate filibusters for cabinet, sub-cabinet and judicial nominees, providing yet another half-a-loaf baby step forward in moving around endemic Republican obstinance.  The rule change makes it so that the Senate requires a majority (50+1), rather than a supermajority (60) to confirm Presidential appointees to essential roles within government.

Supertyphoon Haiyan Claims 10,000

As of today, officials have confirmed 10,000 lives lost after Supertyphoon Haiyan made landfall and devastated large parts of the Pacific.  Reports so far indicate that this was the most powerful, most intense typhoon to ever make landfall, with sustained winds of more than 195 mph. The IPCC issued a report on climate change recently that laid out the risks of global climate change, and an increase in extreme weather events was one many of the expected consequences.  As the ocean heats, storms will continue to increase in power and destructive force. The climate has definitively warmed, with the...
