More on the private intel stuff

LA Times:

Hoping to win a lucrative agreement with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, three data security contractors for federal defense and intelligence agencies developed a proposal to monitor and manipulate the chamber’s left-leaning critics, according to recently released e-mail correspondence.

Employees of the firms compiled short dossiers on a few activists that included photographs, references to their families and charts of their relationships with other liberal and labor leaders.

NYT:

Jonathan E. Turner, who runs a Tennessee-based business that gathers intelligence for corporate clients, said that companies nationwide relied on investigators to gather potentially damaging information on possible business partners or rivals. “Information is power,” said Mr. Turner, former chairman of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

He estimated that the “competitive intelligence” industry had 9,700 companies offering these services, with an annual market of more than $2 billion, but said there were limits to what tactics should be used.

The Great Terrorist Babies Plot! – Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is dumb.

“I talked to a retired FBI agent who said that one of the things they were looking at were terrorist cells overseas who had figured out how to game our system. And it appeared they would have young women, who became pregnant, would get them into the United States to have a baby,” said Gohmert. “They wouldn’t even have to pay anything for the baby. And then they would turn back where they could be raised and coddled as future terrorists. And then one day, twenty, thirty years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life. ‘Cause they figured out how stupid we are being in this country to allow our enemies to game our system, hurt our economy, get set up in a position to destroy our way of life.”

Cops taze grannies like it’s nobody’s business

Glenn Greenwald (the non-crazy Glenn) has an article about how many US Citizens the US has targeted for assassination (it’s more than zero)

Dave Weigel resigned from the Washington Post over some private stuff he said via email, meanwhile Dana Milbank makes videos calling Hillary Clinton a “bitch” and is still employed. Your liberal media at work.

United Farm Workers have announced the Take Our Jobs campaign. As someone who used to live where migrant workers worked the field I can tell you there were awfully few non-immigrants working the field.
