If University is Trying to Turn you into a Debt Slave, Try these 40 Free Educational Websites*

If University is Trying to Turn you into a Debt Slave, Try these 40 Free Educational Websites*

According to http://www.webometrics.info, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly. Many students around the world (and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education.

Two-thirds of the U.S. college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can’t stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago:

“With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write. In the same way, once we have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries, where you can ask any question and be given answers, you can look up something you’re interested in knowing, however silly it might seem to someone else. – Isaac Asiov

Isaac Asimov died in 1992, but if he could see the opportunities that the Internet is giving us in XXI century he would probably grin from ear to ear. Getting a degree in a university might be expensive, but there are much better options. There are many websites on the Internet that now offer FREE of charge learning materials. Now even the poorest people could afford to be better educated than many of Harvard’s graduates, all they need is access to a computer (does not even have to be personal one, it could be the one that the local library offers for public use)

U.S.-Made Weapons in Aleppo in Terrorists Arms Cache*

U.S.-Made Weapons in Aleppo in Terrorists Arms Cache*

Russian sappers deployed to Aleppo made a sensational discovery this week, uncovering a weapons cache left behind by anti-government militants filled to the brim with ammo for heavy weapons manufactured in countries including the U.S., Germany and Bulgaria.

Major Ivan Gromov, the commander of the mine-clearing group, told the Rossiya 24 television news channel that his group has been discovering Western-made ammunition, from large-caliber rounds for small arms to rocket artillery shells, littered across the city. Heavy rounds and shells include ammunition manufactured in the United States, Germany and Bulgaria, he added.

n a sensational discovery, Gromov’s team and local pro-government militia also found brand new, pristine 122 mm mortar shells, hand grenades and grenade launchers, missiles for multiple rocket launch systems and howitzer shells in a rebel hideout. The source of many of these weapons is clearly marked, with some of the ammo boxes featuring stickers marked ‘From USA for Mutual Defense’.

Russian sappers arrived in eastern Aleppo at the beginning of December. Since then, they have cleared over 966 hectares (2,387 acres), including 350 km (about 217 miles) worth of roads and 2,149 buildings from explosive devices. A total of nearly 14,700 explosive devices had been found and defused, including over 6,700 IEDs. Just in the last day, the engineers cleared four schools, a kindergarten and nine mosques of explosive devices.

Dov Katz, an Israeli hi-tech executive living in California, was arrested in Washington state last week and charged with attempting to solicit sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The 38-year-old Katz is the head of computer vision at Oculus VR, virtual reality company, which was acquired by Facebook for about $2 billion in cash and stock in 2014.

Katz was arrested in Tukwila, Washington after responding to an ad posted online by an undercover detective posing as a 15-year-old offering sex in exchange for money, the TechCrunch website reported.

Katz arranged to meet the girl in a hotel room after offering to pay $360 to have sex without a condom. When he arrived at the hotel with $600 in cash, Katz was arrested by police. He told them that he was there to rescue the girl, the site reported. Bail was set at $125,000 and Katz’s arraignment is set for January 5.

Katz, a Tel Aviv University graduate, helped develop the Oculus Rift headset, a 3D virtual reality device that provides an immersive experience.

The Battle for Oak Flat against the Resolution Copper Mining Company*

By Bri Cossavella

Oak Flat, a desert landscape that’s a 90-minute drive from Phoenix, lies in the midst of an environmental and economic controversy.

Members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe revere the federally owned land as sacred. Environmentalists consider it a sanctuary for wildlife and vegetation. Climbers, hikers and campers gravitate to Oak Flat for outdoor recreation.

And Resolution Copper Co. covets the rich veins of copper running below the surface of Oak Flat.

In December 2014, Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed the fiscal 2015 National Defense Authorization Act, which authorized Resolution, a Phoenix-based affiliate of foreign mining companies Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton, to perform mining operations in Oak Flat in exchange for other land in Arizona.

The act is primarily made up of military reform and funding language and has passed consecutively for about 50 years, but Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, was able to add the Resolution provisions to the bill that year, according to a Cronkite News article.

Prior to the bill’s passing, Resolution submitted its plan of operations to the U.S. Forest Service’s Tonto National Forest. The forest service “accepted” the plan, but has yet to approve it. Now that the bill is the law, federal agencies have no choice but to carry it out as long as certain requirements are met, said John Scaggs, spokesman for the forest service.

Environmentalists and the tribe remain opposed to the mine that Resolution said would create jobs and boost Arizona’s economy, while providing copper, “a key ingredient in wind and solar energy.” Company leaders propose exchanging eight land parcels across Arizona for mining Oak Flat.

The Land Exchange

In addition to a mining operation, Resolution proposed a land exchange. The company will give land it currently owns to public land managers, like the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, in exchange for the land that rests above the copper stores.

The Resolution parcels are scattered across the state near places like Payson, Cave Creek and Mammoth and total about 5,300 acres. After the swap, Resolution would get about 2,400 acres of land, including Oak Flat, according to the forest service website.

But the mine is projected to affect nearly 7,000 acres of surface land, according to the forest service website. It would extend 7,000 feet underground and would be the largest copper mine in the United States, leaving behind a 1,000-foot-deep crater, according to Resolution’s website.

Resolution Copper spokesman Bill Tanner declined several interview requests, referring Cronkite News to the mining company’s website for information.

A “bipartisan group of leaders,” “local communities” and Resolution officials came together to decide which lands would go to public land managers, according to that website.

Equal Value

A government appraiser will be jointly selected by the forest service and Resolution to evaluate and determine whether the proposed lands are of “equal value” while abiding by nationally recognized standards. If the appraiser concludes that the lands are not of equal value, Resolution will have to give up more land or pay the federal government to make up the difference, according to the forest service website. The selection process for the appraiser is under way and the evaluation is expected to begin in 2017, Scaggs said.

Cultural Objections

Wendsler Nosie Sr., a member of the San Carlos Apache tribal council, said that in terms of cultural value, the other land parcels don’t fit the bill. Nosie is also a representative of the Apache Stronghold, an organization opposed to the proposed mine.

“In ancient times and today, references to Oak Flat can be heard in our songs, rituals, teachings and language,” he said.

“Understand that any land base is important because there’s purpose to each of them, but Oak Flat is everything that makes us who we are.”

He called the mine the “genocide of our religion.”

Nosie said if Christians wanted to explore their religion, they can go to Europe where preserved buildings and monuments stand today—Oak Flat is symbolically identical, and future generations wouldn’t be able to connect to it if it’s altered, he said.

One of the parcels Resolution is proposing is a section of Apache Leap—a historically known jagged cliff near the town of Superior. In the late 1800s, members of the Apache Tribe plummeted off of it, greeting death rather than be captured by U.S. Cavalry, according to an article on the website Arizona Silver Belt, “The Legend of How Apache Leap Got Its Name.”

“We respect the importance of the Oak Flat area to many Native American people, and have committed to give the public access to the Oak Flat campground for as long as it is safe,” Resolution’s website says.

“We hope we can work with neighbouring Native American tribes by answering and addressing their concerns.”

Brzezinski Decries ‘Global Political Awakening’ During CFR Speech*

Brzezinski Decries ‘Global Political Awakening’ During CFR Speech*

Brzezinski Decries ‘Global Political Awakening’ During CFR Speech*

By Paul Joseph Watson

At a Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal, co-founder with David Rockefeller of the Trilateral Commission and regular Bilderberg attendee Zbigniew Brzezinski warned that a “global political awakening,” in combination with infighting amongst the elite, was threatening to derail the move towards a one world government.

Brzezinski explained that global political leadership had become “much more diversified unlike what it was until relatively recently,” noting the rise of China as a geopolitical power, and that global leadership in the context of the G20 was “lacking internal unity with many of its members in bilateral antagonisms.”

In other words, the global elite is infighting amongst itself and this is hampering efforts to rescue the agenda for global government, which seems to be failing on almost every front.

Brzezinski then explained another significant factor in that,

“For the first time in all of human history mankind is politically awakened – that’s a total new reality – it has not been so for most of human history.”

Brzezinski continued, “The whole world has become politically awakened,” adding that all over the world people were aware of what was happening politically and were “consciously aware of global inequities, inequalities, lack of respect, exploitation.”

“Mankind is now politically awakened and stirring,” said Brzezinski, adding that this in combination with a fractured elite “makes it a much more difficult context for any major power, including currently the leading world power, the United States.”

During a subsequent question and answer session, Brzezinski was asked if he thought another organization should replace the United Nations as the de facto “one world government,” to which Brzezinski responded,

“There should be such an organization,” before pointing out that the U.N. was not it in its current role.

As the text at the end of the video makes clear, Brzezinski’s admission that humanity has undergone a political awakening is not a positive development in the eyes of the elite.

Watch the clip:

In his 1970 book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, Brzezinski wrote the following.

3fcd8-zbigniew_brezinski-between_two_ages_americas_role_in_the_technotronic_era_1970

The “elite” to which Brzezinski refers included many of those who were in attendance for his speech at the CFR meeting.

The global political awakening which Brzezinski discussed represents part of the resistance to that very elite dominated society and the systems of control, subjugation and surveillance that they have imposed upon the human race in pursuit of a “more controlled society” and a one world government.

“It should come as no surprise, then, that long-time CIA and ‘intelligence complex’ operatives turn up on the FMSF Advisory Board. Perhaps the most public member has been Dr. Louis Jolyon ‘Jolly’ West, a legendary figure in CIA mind control circles operating out of UCLA.

“Another is Dr. Martin Orne, an authority on torture who currently works at the University of Pennsylvania’s Experimental Psychiatry Lab … Still another false memory luminary is Margaret Singer, professor emeritus at the University of California-Berkeley.” Toward Freedom, May 1998

One of the names raised at the Bonacci trial was that of Michael Aquino. Aquino is the ‘High Priest’ and chief executive of the Temple of Set, an overtly satanic cult that split off from the Church of Satan in 1975.

Besides tending to those duties, Aquino also has occupied his time serving as (according to an official biography once circulated by the Temple) a “Lieutenant Colonel, Military Intelligence, U.S. Army.”

Aquino was accused in court by the mother of a victim as being a key player in a nationwide paedophile ring.

Paul Bonacci himself has also positively identified Aquino as an associate of King, known to the children only as ‘the Colonel.’

King’s personal photographer has identified Aquino as the man to whom he saw King hand over a suitcase full of cash and bonds.

The photographer, Rusty Nelson, also has said that King told him that Aquino was part of the Contra guns and cocaine trafficking operation run by George Bush and another notorious Lt. Col., Oliver North.

George Bush Pedophile Sex Ring and Blackmail of Congress

Aquino has also been linked to Offutt Air Force Base, a Strategic Air Command post near Omaha that was implicated in the investigation by the Franklin Committee. He was also claimed to have ordered the abduction of a Des Moines, Iowa paperboy.

This was certainly not the first time that Aquino had been implicated as a key figure in large scale paedophile/child pornography rings.

In July of 1988, not long before the King and Spence cases broke, the San Jose Mercury News ran a lengthy exposé on the Presidio Child Development Center run by the U.S. Army in San Francisco.

Allegations of abuse being perpetrated at the centre first emerged in November of 1986.

Alarmed by accusations made by her child, a parent had sought a medical examination which confirmed that the three-year-old boy had in fact been anally raped. The boy identified his rapist as ‘Mr. Gary,’ a teacher at the centre named Gary Hambright.

Even with the conclusive medical evidence,

“it took the Army almost a month to notify the parents of other children who had been in ‘Mr. Gary’s’ class that the incident had taken place.”

Within a year, at least sixty victims had been identified, all between the ages of three and seven, and further “allegations would be made by parents that several more children were molested even after the investigation had begun.”

Amazingly enough, the centre remained open for more than a year after the first case of abuse was reported, though the Mercury News noted that “day care centres under state jurisdiction are routinely closed when an abuse incident is confirmed.”

And this was considerably more than a simple abuse incident that was confirmed.

The stories told by the children implicated many other perpetrators besides Hambright. They also told of being taken away from the centre to be abused in private homes; at least three such houses were positively identified.

They also told of being forced to play “poopoo baseball” and the “googoo” game – ‘games’ that involved the children being urinated and defecated upon, and being forced to ingest urine and faeces.

Many of them also spoke of having guns pointed at them and of having been told that they and/or their parents and siblings would be killed if they told anyone what had been done to them.

Despite the mounting number of victim/witnesses, and the numerous crimes alleged by these children, it was only Gary Hambright who was arrested — on January 5, 1987 — and he was charged with abusing just a single child. And even then the charges were dismissed just three months later, in March of 1987.

There is little doubt that literally dozens of children were in fact severely abused at the centre. There was irrefutable medical evidence to document that fact.

Five of the children had contracted chlamydia, a sexually transmitted disease; many others showed clear signs of anal and genital trauma consistent with violent penetration, which authorities chose to ignore.

One mother complained to the San Francisco Chronicle that the FBI never interviewed her or her son, even after doctors had confirmed the boy’s abuse.

There were unmistakable psychological signs as well. As The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry noted in April of 1992:

“The severity of the trauma for children at the Presidio was immediately manifest in clear cut symptoms. Before the abuse was exposed, parents had already noticed the following changes in their children: vaginal discharge, genital soreness, rashes, fear of the dark, sleep disturbances, nightmares, sexually provocative language, and sexually inappropriate behaviour.

“In addition, the children were exhibiting other radical changes in behaviour, including temper outbursts, sudden mood shifts, and poor impulse control. All these behavioural symptoms are to be expected in preschool children who have been molested.”

The journal article, written by Diane Ehrensaft, Ph.D., also noted that:

“The Presidio case has confronted both the public at large and the mental health community with an extraordinary and abhorrent situation of grave psychological proportions: the willful molestation of young boys and girls by representatives of the most patriarchal and supposedly protective arm of the American government – the U.S. Army.”

The article further noted the nearly homicidal rage provoked in the fathers of the children abused in this way, as they saw the investigations of the crimes perpetrated against their children stonewalled and covered up.

One father is quoted as saying: “When something about the Presidio comes on TV, I want to blow someone away.”

Another father echoed this sentiment: “I was ready to blow the army base away.”

One of those who the fathers would have liked to blow away was Michael Aquino, along with his wife Lilith.

One child positively identified the pair, known to the kids as ‘Mikey’ and ‘Shamby,’ and was also able to positively identify the Aquino’s home and to describe with uncanny accuracy the distinctively satanic interior of the house.

The young witness also claimed to have been photographed at the Aquinos’ home.

On August 14 of 1987, a search warrant was served on the house. Confiscated in the raid were numerous videotapes, photographs, photo albums, photographic negatives, cassette tapes, and name and address books.

Also observed was what appeared to be a soundproof room. Neither Aquino nor his wife were charged with any crimes, nor have they been to this day – a fact that Aquino claims proves his innocence.

The next month, a fire – which the Army deemed to be accidental – destroyed the Army Community Services Building adjacent to the Presidio’s day care centre.

Strangely enough, “the fire occurred on the autumnal equinox, a major event on the satanic calendar,” as the Mercury News noted. The fire also destroyed some of the centre’s records.

“Three weeks later, fire struck again, this time at the day care centre itself.”

A building that housed four classrooms, including that of Gary Hambright, was completely destroyed. Investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms determined that “both fires, contrary to the Army’s finding, had been arson.”

In between the first and second fires (with evidence indicating that a third arson attempt had been made as well), Hambright was again indicted, this time charged with molesting ten children.

In February of 1988, all but one of the charges were dropped. Shortly thereafter, the remaining count was dropped as well, and Hambright was a free man once again. No further charges were brought against him.

In January of 1988, Aquino filed suit against the Army to have it cleared from his record that he had been investigated as a suspected paedophile.

According to court records, he also had the gall to charge “Captain Adams-Thompson [the father of a victim] with conduct unbecoming an officer because the Captain reported the allegations of child abuse to the San Francisco police.”

In denying Aquino’s motion, the court concluded that “there was probable cause to title Aquino with offenses of indecent acts with a child, sodomy, conspiracy, kidnapping, and false swearing,” despite the fact that “the San Francisco police department (SFPD) closed its investigation and filed no charges against the plaintiff or anyone else.”

Aquino and various of his defenders have consistently claimed that no one was ever prosecuted in the case due to a lack of evidence – proof that the entire affair was no more than a ‘witch hunt.’

Of course, the failure to prosecute the federal charges could also be due to the fact that, at the time, the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco handling the case was Joseph Russoniello.

Russoniello would later be identified by reporter Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News as a player in the Contra cocaine smuggling operation led by Lt. Col. Oliver North and company, just as witnesses would later identify Lt. Col. Michael Aquino as an operative in the very same sordid affair.

It always helps when your legal ‘adversaries’ are actually on your side.

In May of 1989, Aquino was again questioned in connection with child abuse investigations; this time at least five children in three cities were making the accusations.

The children had seen Aquino in newspaper and television coverage of the Presidio case and immediately recognized him as one of their abusers.

Three of the children lived in Ukiah – former home of the People’s Temple – where Police Chief Fred Keplinger was overseeing the investigation of the allegations.

The Mercury News quoted the chief as saying that “the children are believable. I have no doubt in my mind that something has occurred.”

Aquino was also identified by children in Santa Rosa and Fort Bragg.

In the Fort Bragg case, “allegations of ritual abuse erupted… in 1985 when several children at the Jubilation Day Care Center said they were sexually abused by a number of people at the day care centre and at several locations away from the centre, including at least two churches.”

Aquino was identified as having been at one of those churches.

The Mercury News also reported that there was clear evidence of satanic cult activity on the grounds of the Presidio base, including an abundance of satanic graffiti, a satanic altar, and numerous artefacts of satanic rituals.

A former MP at the base is quoted as saying:

“We were sitting there, we’ve got a cult on the Presidio of San Francisco and nobody cares about it … We were told by the provost marshal to just forget about it.”

On April 19, 1988 – the eve of Adolf Hitler’s birthday, and seven years to the day before the Oklahoma City Federal Building would explode, allegedly due to an act of ‘domestic terrorism’ — an open-house was held on the grounds of the Presidio heralding the opening of the new day care facility built to replace the fire-damaged Child Development Centre.

As a final note on the Presidio case, a report in the Marin Independent Journal revealed that Aquino owned a building in Marin County — inherited from his mother, Betty Ford-Aquino — that had been jointly leased to the Marin County Child Abuse Council and Project Care for Children.

The stated purpose of Project Care was, interestingly enough, to assist parents in locating day care for their children.

As disturbing as the Presidio case was, it was just one of many ritual abuse cases directly tied to one or more branches of the United States armed forces.

As the Mercury News reported:

“By November, 1987 the Army had received allegations of child abuse at 15 of its day care centres and several elementary schools. There were also at least two cases in Air Force day care centres,” and another in a center run by the U.S. Navy.

In addition, “a special team of experts was sent to Panama [in June of 1988] to help determine if as many as 10 children at a Department of Defense elementary school had been molested and possibly infected with AIDS.” Yet another case emerged in a U.S.-run facility in West Germany.

These cases erupted at some of the most esteemed military bases in the country, including Fort Dix, Fort Leavenworth, Fort Jackson, and West Point.

Many of those making the accusations were career military officers who had devoted their lives to unquestioned allegiance to the U.S. armed forces. Many would resign their posts in outraged protest.

It would be redundant to review all these cases, as most of them followed a remarkably similar pattern.

Given though that West Point is America’s premier military academy, and given also that the case – like many others – was linked by witnesses to the Presidio, a brief review is warranted here.

As The Times Herald Record reported in June of 1991:

“The incidents [at the West Point Child Development Centre] unfolded against a backdrop of satanic acts, animal sacrifices and cult-like behaviour among the abusers, whose activities extended beyond the U.S. Military Academy borders to Orange County and a military base in San Francisco, parents charged.”

The case first broke in July of 1984, when a three-year-old girl found herself in the emergency room of the West Point Hospital with a lacerated vagina.

She told the examining physician that a teacher at the day care centre had hurt her. The next month, the parents of another child leveled accusations of abuse at the centre.

As the Mercury News reported:

“By the end of the year, 50 children had been interviewed by investigators. Children at West Point told stories that would become horrifyingly familiar. They said they had been ritually abused.

“They said they had had excrement smeared on their bodies and been forced to eat faeces and drink urine. They said they were taken away from the day care centre and photographed.”

Despite abundant medical and psychological evidence, and literally dozens of child witnesses, and despite “950 interviews by 60 FBI agents assigned to the investigation, an investigation led by former U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani produced no federal grand jury indictments,” according to the Herald Record.

The Herald also noted that:

“In 1987, Giuliani said his detailed investigation showed only one or two children were abused.”

This was, it should be noted, a bare-faced lie from the fascistic future-mayor and would-be Senator, as the Herald report divulged:

“a still-secret, independent report – produced by one of the nation’s top experts on child sexual abuse – confirms the children’s accusations of abuse.”

This was not the first time that the prestigious academy had shown an appalling willingness to overlook extreme levels of abuse directed at children by army personnel.

A year before the abuse case broke, a 22-month-old child was murdered by an Army staff sergeant.

The Mercury News reported that:

“After a court martial hearing, the sergeant was given an 18 month suspended sentence and dishonorable discharge.”

In other words, he served no time and was essentially given a free ride for murdering a child. With help from Giuliani, the FBI, the U.S. Army, and the grand jury, the abusers of countless children at the day care centre (which was, appropriately enough, building number 666 on the academy grounds) were likewise given a free ride.

As with the Franklin case, the children and their parents were to find justice only through the civil courts.

The Herald Record reported that:

“lawyers for both the government and the 11 child plaintiffs agreed that some children were sexually abused at the centre two years ago” (again contradicting Giuliani’s bogus conclusions). The government, however, claimed that it could not be held responsible, due to the “assault exemption in the Federal Tort Claim Act.”

As the New York Times explained: “under federal law the government cannot be held liable for assaults committed by its employees and thus cannot be sued for assault.”

In other words, the Army did not dispute the allegations, it just rather cavalierly maintained that it was exempt from being sued.

The court saw otherwise and awarded $2.7 million to nine of the child victims – paltry compensation for their suffering, but a victory of sorts nonetheless.

The Times opined that the settlement amount “was large for a child-abuse case in which no criminal charges were filed.”

The article claimed that the failure to prosecute the case was due to the fact that “the Federal Bureau of Investigation found ‘insufficient evidence to prosecute,’” when in fact the Bureau appears to have deliberately ignored and/or covered-up that evidence.

And so ended the West Point case, except that – as one mother noted – it was hardly over:

These people stole our children. She’s nothing like she used to be. She’s a very angry little girl. She doesn’t trust anyone. She’s nothing like she was before this happened. It’s never going to be over for them, or for us.”

The mother of a Presidio victim had this to say:

 

 “People keep telling us we’ve got to let it go — just forget about it and go on… Three weeks ago, our youngest daughter was having nightmares and our other daughter was closing out the whole world, going to her room and siting there, with no radio, no TV, no nothing. Tell me it’s over.

“I cannot accept promotion in a system that at first refused to acknowledge and now refuses to deal with the victims of extensive child abuse that occurred at the West Point Child Development Centre.”

Army Captain Walter R. Grote, refusing a promotion to Major in June 1985. Grote referred to his protest as a “fight for the human rights of all children.”

How Facebook gives the U.S. Govt Access to your Profile Data*

How Facebook gives the U.S. Govt Access to your Profile Data*

By Alex Christoforou

As Facebook works with Soros funded, Hillary endorsed, fact checkers to stamp out “fake news”, and censor any opinions not of the liberal left kind, more information is being exposed as to how Facebook lets the US government access profile data.

The procedures intimately ties Facebook to the U.S. gov., is being disclosed by Facebook itself, in its Global Government Requests Report.

Alice Salles via TheAntiMedia.org describes how the “US Government Can Legally Access Your Facebook Data”…and how they go about accessing that data…

The end of the year is approaching, and data concerning government abuses of power has begun pouring in.

According to Facebook’s Global Government Requests Report, government’s requests for Facebook account data rose 27 % in the first half of 2016.

Facebook’s official announcement explained that requests for user data went from 46,710 in the last half of 2015 to 59,229 in the first half of 2016. At least 56% of these requests, Facebook added, “contained a non-disclosure order that prohibited us from notifying the user.

Law enforcement agencies from across the globe, Facebook continued, often send restriction requests demanding Facebook remove content from its forums. Fortunately, these requests dropped substantially this year, from 55,827 in the last half of 2015 to 9,663 in 2016 — an 87% drop. Most of the 2015 requests revolved aroundFrench content restrictions of a single image from the November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks.”

Additionally, Facebook used its report to disclose for the first time what the company does when law enforcement agencies request “snapshots” of a user account that might be relevant to law enforcement for undisclosed reasons.

These “preservation requests,” as they are known, are requests to “preserve data pending receipt of formal legal process.” They are often processed by the social media website as snapshots, which are preserved temporarily. According to Facebook, the company does notdisclose any of the preserved records unless and until we receive formal and valid legal process.” In the first half of 2016, Facebook received 38,675 preservation requests regarding 67,129 accounts, a staggering number of requests.

Further, Facebook insisted it does not give law enforcement any “back doors” to user information. Adding that requests are only fulfilled if they meet legal requirements or “legal sufficiency,” as Facebook puts it, they claim to “apply a rigorous approach to every government request [they] receive to protect the information of the people who use [their] services,” the company added. But this rigorous approach is not rigorous enough if “reforms” designed to avoid privacy overreach in America simply don’t go far enough.

Take the USA Freedom Act, for instance. The 2015 law was once supported by libertarian-leaning congressmen like Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI). Later, however, Amash criticized the bill after changes giving government more power were adopted.

Mentioning the new rule by name, Facebook added that “as a result of transparency reforms introduced this year by the USA Freedom Act, our report also contains additional information concerning National Security Letters (NSLs).” NSLs are “extraordinary search procedures” that give the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) the power to “compel the disclosure of customer records held by banks, telephone companies, Internet Service Providers, and others.” They are extraordinary because detailed information can be surrendered without proper oversight, an issue that has led to countless cases of abuse.

While NSLs are still being implemented, the gag order related to the procedure has changed. Now, “the government goes to court to justify the gag order only if an NSL recipient notifies the FBI of its desire for judicial review in the first place.” While the government bears “the burden of immediately going to court and proving its necessity,” NSLs give the FBI the power to bypass this important step.

Explaining that “the government lifted a gag requirement on one NSL issued in the second half of 2015,” the company decided to publish it. It’s unclear sure how many other NSLs Facebook has received.

Facebook may promise to “apply a rigorous approach to every government request” that comes its way, but rigor may only be practiced within the boundaries of U.S. law. If the law fails to protect the user’s privacy by allowing agencies to use “extraordinary” procedures, your data is never protected, no matter how well-meaning companies like Facebook claim to be.

According to Facebook, other government requests concerning “imminent risk of serious injury or death” are also granted on a regular basis. At least 3,016 of these requests were made in the first half of 2016. They targeted 4,192 accounts.

Search warrants were produced in only 13,742 cases of request for data while only 781 others were backed by court orders.
