Insulting Obama tweet sparks Secret Service visit

TAMPA, Florida – Scott Barrish isn’t afraid to speak his mind, especially when it comes to politics and President Barack Obama.

“I don’t agree with his policies, I don’t agree with his party’s platform,” said Barrish Thursday afternoon after the President’s campaign stop in Tampa.

Barrish sent out a Tweet saying he’d be “in close proximity to the Failure-in-Chief” and that the president wasn’t welcome in Tampa.

“It was my personal feeling about the president being in my town. I certainly don’t welcome him.”

But Barrish’s Tweet was enough to catch the attention of the U.S. Secret Service, who called him first thing Thursday morning, and even sent two Hillsborough County deputies to his home.

“They said, ‘Well we kind of deem that tweet a threat against the President and we want to come out and talk with you. Where are you right now?'”

Barrish used his cell phone to…

By chanting Hare Krishna one fixes his mind always on the Supreme Lord.

Similarly, if we constantly think of Krishna, it is certain that at the end of our lives we shall have the same bodily constitution as Krishna.

In a revelation that will surprise almost no one at this point, the Obama administration has been caught in another lie. Records obtained by USA Today contradict the administration’s assertions the 2,228 people freed from immigration jails in 2013 only included those with minor criminal records. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released a number of illegal aliens facing serious criminal charges that include “kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide,” the paper reports.

Despite last year’s furor surrounding the release, the administration continued to insist that only “low-risk offenders who do not have serious criminal records,” had been set free. That statement was part of the hundreds of emails and spreadsheets obtained by the newspaper showing that while two-thirds of those released had no criminal records, several had significant criminal records.

While serving as secretary of state under President George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice called upon the New York Times and asked the paper to not report on a story, a former editor now says.

Jill Abramson, who served as executive editor of the Times from 2011 through earlier this year, told CBS News’ 60 Minutes television program that she was summoned to an undisclosed location by Rice during the Bush administration and asked to stop Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist James Risen from finishing an article concerning a CIA effort to disrupt Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

According to the interview with 60 Minutes, Abramson said Rice “barely looked up” during the meeting and instead “read in a very stern manner” from a legal pad that was described by the editor as containing “just…

The American investors have poured billions of dollars into new technologies to track students’ movements.

The data mining company inBloom died, killed off by parent opposition, but the data mining industry is not dead. Far from it. It is growing and metastasizing as investors see new opportunities to profit from the data surreptitiously collected while children are using computers, taking tests online, chatting online, and practicing for state tests online.

According to an article in Model View Culture, investors have poured billions of dollars into new technologies to track students’ movements.

Designed for the “21st century” classroom, these tools promise to remedy the many, many societal ills facing public education with artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, and other technological advancements.

They are also being used to track and record every move students make in the classroom, grooming students for a lifetime of surveillance and turning education into one of…
