American journalist, lawyer and writer
A special podcast episode features best-selling author and former constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald's keynote presentation from Priv8's digital summit. Glenn joins Orchid's CEO, Dr. Steven Waterhouse (Seven), and journalist Naomi Brockwell to talk about the importance of protecting free speech and the impact of censorship online.
Right now, the world's leaders are mashing down on the "fear" button just as hard as they can. Our job, as sources of truth and light, is to speak the truth--with love, for the sake of those who are still reachable. Paris Williams perfectly describes how love, not fear will get us through this crisis. Making sense of the bigger picture of what's going on all around us requires some serious effort. Paul Rosenberg wrote about the rape of the West more than 5 years ago. His observations have held up well and offer some real insight into why our so-called leaders are so adept at bypassing morality. One of the strongest symptoms of our societal disconnect from reality can be seen in how racially-obsessed individuals tend to label everyone who will not chant in unison with them as "racist." Glenn Greenwald is the voice of reason on such matters as he describes the cynical and dangerous weaponization of the "white supremacist" label by the left. People who believe in word magic tend to be the most egregious users of labels and name-callers. Like the little boy who cried wolf, there comes a point when they have no credibility. As Howard Hyde explains, when everyone's a white supremacist, no one is. The reinstatement of travel bans and mask mandates over the latest virus variant is a strong indicator that we're still not in control of our own lives. Tom Slater advises that we must reject this Covid safetyism unless we want to live in a society where we can be pushed around forever.

Megyn Kelly is joined by Glenn Greenwald, editor at Substack, Andrew Branca, self-defense attorney, Mark Eiglarsh, defense attorney, and Angenette Levy, Law&Crime Network reporter, to talk about the breaking news that Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts, the media coverage of the case, the jury deliberation process, the focus on the judge, MSNBC's coverage from Joy Reid as well as their ethical breach by following the jury van, and more.Follow The Megyn Kelly Show on all social platforms: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/MegynKellyTwitter: http://Twitter.com/MegynKellyShowInstagram: http://Instagram.com/MegynKellyShowFacebook: http://Facebook.com/MegynKellyShow Find out more information at: https://www.devilmaycaremedia.com/megynkellyshow
While the Kyle Rittenhouse case dominates the news cycle, another deeply concerning story is taking place just out of view of most Americans. Project Veritas is under direct attack by the U.S. government and so is freedom of the press. Glenn Greenwald directs some sunlight onto both stories and explains how the tribal slant of media coverage represents a disturbing inability to think in principles. Learning to see through the daily narratives that we're being force-fed takes a conscious decision regarding the kinds of media we consume on a daily basis. The editorial board at Issues & Insights has some blunt but solid advice: Please stop trusting anything the mainstream media report. None of us wants to think of ourselves as predictable but there's truth to the idea that if you talk politics for 10 seconds, astute observers will know--with 80% accuracy--where you get your news. Paul Rosenberg explains why this is so and why we cannot limit ourselves to closed circuit thinking. What's the worst thing that can happen if you stand up for yourself and assert your natural rights? Sadly, this is a question that is being answered for a lot of people who are finding out what it means to suffer for their beliefs. Andrea Widburg says the otherization of unvaccinated people is proceeding quickly and leading us to some very dark places.

With Apple releasinghttps://podcasters.apple.com/878-subscriptions ( paid and freemium podcast subscriptions), there's a lot of talk in the podcast world about this new option for monetizing podcasts. So this is a perfect opportunity to cover an idea I've talked about behind the scenes but isn't in the MicroFamous book (at least, not this current version). There's a big difference between a product that helps you build demand for you, versus a product that harvests demand that already exists. Let's give a couple examples. Dan Kennedy tells a story of him taking his personal swipe file and offering it to his email list and making a quick 6 figures, then offering it out through affiliates and making another quick 6 figures. What gets left out of that story is all the years he spent investing in that email list. Sending out high-value content. Making promises and then keeping them. Building trust over time. Then he can release a product that capitalizes on the demand and trust that already exists. If no one knew who Dan Kennedy was, no one cares about his swipe file and he doesn't make multiple 6 figures off that product. Let's look at another example, the rise ofhttps://substack.com/ ( Substack) and alternative journalism. Take someone likehttps://greenwald.substack.com/ ( Glenn Greenwald), now an independent journalist, but in the past someone who contributed to big name outlets like the Guardian and the Washington Post, where he won a Pulitzer Prize, then went out to found the Intercept. Now he publishes on Substack, a platform for paid newsletters. Estimates are that he has 20k-40k subscribers each paying at least $5 a month, which puts his yearly earnings around 2 million. With podcasting opening up the option for paid subscriptions, we're going to see some similar success stories in that space. Here's my opinion: Paid subscriptions capitalize on existing demand. They don't carry the heavy lifting of creating new demand. So should an expert - like a coach, consultant or business book author - jump into the world of paid subscriptions? It depends on whether you have an existing audience or not. What we forget about folks like Glenn Greenwald is that they spent years writing for big name publications, going on TV, writing books or speaking. They spent years, maybe even decades building their influence, creating trust, gaining notoriety, attracting attention, getting their content in front of thousands, maybe even millions. So unless you have already done that, remember that the economics of paid subscriptions may not be in your favor. In my point of view, paid subscriptions are like harvesting a crop you've been growing all season. But it doesn't plant new seeds. So the success stories we're about to hear in paid subscriptions will probably be those who already had an audience. They are “harvesting” from the crop of fame, influence and demand they built over years. Demand is how much of YOU people want. When there's more demand for you than supply, you can harvest that demand in different ways. You can launch a book or an online membership. You can raise your speaking fees or your coaching fees. You can launch certifications or group coaching where your involvement is minimal Why? Because there's more demand for you than supply. What if you don't have that level of demand yet? What if you're still in the phase of attracting an audience and becoming MicroFamous in your space? Then my advice is that you're just in a different season. It's your time to plant, not harvest. And this is important because a detour into paid subscriptions has consequences. When you release a harvesting type product without a high level of demand, you'll put a ton of effort into something that only a small portion of your audience signs up for. Which means you aren't...
Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss Russia-gate. Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov blasts the Russia-gate hoax as one of the principal reasons that ties between the Eurasian power and the US empire have deteriorated. Also, Glenn Greenwald blasts US media outlets for deliberately pushing falsehoods, and the US media continues to push Russia-gate style allegations from "anonymous" intelligence sources.Julie Varughuese, editor of Toward Freedom and Coordinator for the Black Alliance for Peace Solidarity Network, joins us to discuss Nicaragua. Incumbent president Daniel Ortega wins reelection in a landslide as Joe Biden threatens retaliation against the Nicaraguan citizens for the crime of exercising democracy. Also, Facebook used a crop of spies to try to interfere with Nicaragua's election. KJ Noh, peace activist, writer and teacher, joins us to discuss China. Jake Sullivan is signaling that the US wants a less confrontational relationship with the Asian economic giant, but the policies of his bosses belie his comments.

The team of left-leaning House members known as "The Squad" is being questioned as Nancy Pelosi outmaneuvers them to pass her infrastructure bill. Also, House progressives may have given up their leverage and been forced to accept the dictates of the party's right-wing.Bob Schlehuber, host of the Radio Sputnik show "Political Misfits," joins us to discuss Ethiopia. Sputnik radio personality and political analyst Bob Schlehuber returns from Ethiopia. He shares his experience and interviews with Ethiopian citizens.Dr. Jemima Pierre, an associate professor of Black studies and anthropology at the University of California, joins us to discuss Haiti.

The divisions that have been created by various COVID policies are very real. And while it's tempting to see those with views opposite of ours as being evil or stupid, the reality is that most are simply afraid. Thomas Harrington has an excellent article on the frightened class and how they've bought into the fear being pumped at us around the clock. Kendall Whiting from my sponsor Lifesaving Food joins me to share a letter he and other food storage distributers received from Readywise Food regarding price hikes and supply chain concerns. If there's something you anticipate needing/wanting in the next year or so, now may be the time to get it. Of all the battles being fought around us, the one in which each of us has a stake is the war that's being waged against reality. Vasko Kohlmayer does a terrific job of describing the great struggle of our time and how we are being required to reject reality. The term "enemy of the state" carries some pretty serious baggage. However, as Jeff Minnick explains, once you understand what the state is up to in regards to separating you from your natural rights, being labeled an enemy of the state should be a badge of honor. The so-called "infrastructure bill" that Congress has been working to pass has a lot of questionable provisions. Buried within this multi-trillion dollar spending package are a couple of passages that could decide the fate of cryptocurrency. Nicholas Anthony has some timely questions on the matter. While we're on the subject of blockchain technology, there's a story you should hear about how the blockchain prevented digital book burning. Chris Campbell explains how this technology is a marvelous hedge against our modern day censors and book burners. The political actors in Washington D.C. deserve as little of our time and attention as possible. Having said that, Glenn Greenwald has an excellent article on how civil liberties are being trampled by the shameless opportunists and power-seekers who are pushing the "insurrection" narrative in Congress's 1/6 committee. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loving-liberty/support
Sam and Emma host Kate Crawford, Research Professor at the University of Southern California Annenberg, to discuss her recent book Atlas of AI: Power, Politics, and the Planetary Costs of Artificial Intelligence, on our relationship with big tech, and the concept of the AI industry as a continuation of the extractive practices and power dynamics in the workplace that we have been building for centuries. They start off with a discussion on how Professor Crawford got into AI, and how her perspective on it has changed, from the view of the industry as one defined by algorithmic capacity and data infrastructure to an industry of extraction and exploitation, jump-started by diving into the stages of production from lithium mines to Amazon fulfillment warehouses to labs. Getting into the abstraction and depoliticization of artificial intelligence, Professor Crawford explores how Big Tech has become perhaps the most concentrated industry since the railroads, hiding behind an ideology of technocratic utopianism that has built a fear of regulation, a consolidation of power, and a growing perspective that it is essential to our way of life. Next, she, Emma, and Sam dive into the relationship between AI and labor practices, looking at the hyper “efficiency” created by workplace algorithms (e.g. at Amazon warehouses) as a revolutionary progression of Frederick Taylor's factory ideology, and exploring how this disembodied management serves to hamper organizing, particularly with the effect of the bias to believe technology. They then move onto the importance of highlighting the overlap of the surveillance state and corporate surveillance, this creation of a multi-headed hydra, and why the American public only sees the state as a threat, before expanding on the surveillance apparatus are already working to reinforce power structures that have exceeded regulation, looking particularly at the Police state and counter-terrorism measures. They wrap up the interview by discussing the future of regulation in the industry and the impact anti-trust measures could have (and why that won't be enough). Sam and Emma read some Majority Reporter updates on the mass unionization efforts going on in the US, and discuss Manchin's posturing with Bernie (physically). And in the Fun Half: Nomiki Konst joins Sam and Emma as they cover the New York democratic machine getting blindsided by a democratic socialist woman of color taking on an established incumbent, inspiring Chuck Schumer to take a break from politics, Chris Leal for TX House District #114 gives some updates on his campaign, and the MR crew discusses the judgments of Meghan McCain in the workplace for simply acting the part she's paid for.

Hello friends! We are back with another great episode of Fully Automated. In this episode, we step back a little bit from the grander political themes that we are usually preoccupied with, to do an episode on the pedagogical possibilities (and challenges) presented by contemporary technology. When it comes to online teaching in the discipline of International Relations, there are very few that can claim to have the experience or insight of Dr. Sebastian Kaempf. Senior Lecturer in Peace and Conflict Studies at the School of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Queensland (Australia), Kaempf is a scholar of global media politics, focusing on the impact of changing media technologies on contemporary conflicts. He is also is the producer (with UQx and edX.com) and convenor of 'MediaWarX', one of UQ's Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and probably one of the largest political science MOOCs in the world. For some, MOOCs seem to represent a sort of ultimate form of “democratized” education whereas, for others, they seem to herald the dawn of a new dystopian age. For Kaempf, now a longtime veteran of online teaching, its important to bring some nuance to this conversation. Pedagogy can make a difference. And, as you'll hear in this conversation, Kaempf and his partners at UQ put a lot of thought and material resources into their approach, pushing the medium to the very edge of what it can accomplish. Here then, Kaempf discusses the minutiae of how he and his colleagues actually built and delivered the course. On the one hand, they avoided the traditional lecture form in favor of what they call “spaced learning” — because research shows that human beings kind of struggle to concentrate that long. On the other, and in a break with the usual stereotype of dry pre-recorded lectures, a central theme of MediaWarX is the seriousness with which they approached the class as a kind of media production. So, for example, portions of the course are presented in a kind of ‘road movie' or documentary style, blending diverse archival footage with on-site discussions from locations all around the world, and interviews with well-known academics and experts (including Glenn Greenwald!). We'll also hear Seb discuss the ethos of “Hacktivism” that he tries to bring to his online teaching. Thus, he uses discovery assignments to teach about everything from how search algorithms work, to how we are addicted to being online, to the power of big data and surveillance. In this way, the course develops a kind of “crowd sourced” content. Finally, I ask Sebastian about Covid, and where and how it has changed the fate of MOOCs and online instruction in general. After 18 months of more or less totally online instruction, how does his experience of working with, and thinking about, MOOCs effect his perception of the future of online education in a post-pandemic world? Sebastian Kaempf can be found on Twitter @SebKaempf and his podcast, Higher Ed Heroes, can be found on all leading podcast apps. And his International Studies Perspectives article with Carrie Finn, discussed in the interview, can be located here: https://academic.oup.com/isp/article-abstract/22/1/1/5651202 https://doi.org/10.1093/isp/ekz025 Thanks for listening. Next episode, we go to Korea to visit the crew from the podcast Red Star over Asia. And in the next episode after that, we will be chatting with Christine Louis Dit Sully.

Sam and Emma host Max Chafkin, features editor and writer at Bloomberg BusinessWeek, to discuss his recent book The Contrarian: Peter Thiel and Silicon Valley's Pursuit of Power. Sam and Emma start off by taking a look at Kyrsten Sinema's interaction with organizers from LUCHA Arizona before she went to hide in a restroom, as opposed to engaging with them directly, as well as the disparity between the outraged reaction to the video and the video itself. Sam and Emma are then joined by Max to discuss Peter Thiel, the "contrarian posture" that's animated his life and his investments, as well as how that informed his interactions with Gawker, Facebook, and PayPal. Max discusses whether Thiel should be considered a "good investor", despite betting against the future, leaning in so far into his contrarian sensibilities that he accurately predicted the 2008 financial crash but botched his hedge fund investments afterwards, leading directly in to him transitioning the fund into a family office, as well as directly into his conflict and legal action with Hulk Hogan against Gawker. Max then details Thiel's "small" nest egg of $1 million that served as the basis for his wealth acquisition, as well as his appetite for competition when it serves him, as well as his absolute distaste for it when it doesn't. They then dive into Thiel's relationship with former President Trump, as well as his pet project of railing against "PC culture", a phenomena that he believes is the animating force of American politics. They then end on Thiel's interactions and partnerships with Glenn Greenwald (who, in fact, Thiel's company Palantir spied on years ago), JD Vance, and the new social media platform Rumble, and how Thiel's investments in these people and companies are symbolic, and that one can draw real comparison to Thiel's political project and that of the Koch brothers: transforming a section of the Republican Party through significant financial investment. Sam and Emma are then joined by David Dayen, executive editor at The American Prospect, to discuss his recent scoop "USPS Begins Postal Banking Pilot Program" as well as his report from last Friday "The Progressive Caucus Wields Power". David begins by outlining the parameters of this new postal banking pilot program through USPS, and how, if fully implemented, this program could significantly aid "unbanked" and "underbanked" people who fall prey to predatory banking schemes as a result of a lack of access to financial services. He goes on to explain the uneasy peace between Trump USPS holdover Louis DeJoy and the USPS union, who, on this one particular issue, are aligned on working toward implementation for its potential for revenue growth for the USPS (DeJoy's interest), as well as for expanding the services of USPS to people who really need them (the union's interest). David then explains whether further implementation will require additional Congressional approval (maybe so, maybe not), how Biden should prioritize a pro-postal banking advocate for a Board of Governors vacancy that remains, the Congressional support this policy already has, and what full implementation would really look in the long term. Sam, Emma, and David end on their discussion of the Progressive Caucus showing its might in blocking the bipartisan infrastructure bill from going to a vote away from the two track structure, the history of the CPC when it was a 6-person working group started by a young anonymous backbencher named Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Pramila Jayapal's ascendance in the ranks of the CPC leading to its growing power, and whether more of these stands may result in the future as a result of this one's success. And in the Fun Half, Sam and Emma correct the record on Senator Blumenthal's Finsta flub from Thursday, and propose that the next Big Tech "disruption" should be these companies being broken up by the government. They then check in on the Facebook whistleblower report from 60 Minutes last night, Nick Clegg being referred to as a "tobacco executive" on CNN by Brian Stelter (which he tries extremely hard to differentiate from, with middling results), Fox and Friends's incredible concern about the labor shortage before Christmas (it's October!

Eric Peters from Eric Peters Autos joins me to talk about the ongoing battle to reclaim and retain our freedoms. Will we ever see an end to the mask mandates? We also discuss new car options that aren't but ought to be. Think about how difficult it is to get a factual take on current events and then consider the chilling effect on free speech if government officials were to designate investigative journalists as mere "information brokers." This is the chilling precedent that the U.S. government has wished to establish by either kidnapping, imprisoning or assassinating people like Julian Assange and Glenn Greenwald. Remember how we learned that "information is power" when we were kids? Sometimes that's true in ways that aren't so good or noble. For instance, California has passed and signed into law a bill that will let so-called "violence prevention researchers" know the names and addresses of every law-abiding gun owner in the state. No one would ever abuse that kind of information, would they? The problems confronting us can seem overwhelming and partisanship can cause us to lose perspective. Emina Elonic reminds us that the single biggest battle that any of us will win is the one in which we find the courage to be good. Historically, this is the dynamic that has led people out of tyranny. Federalism is a concept that's poorly understood by most Americans. That may explain why it was displaced by nationalism a long time ago. It's likely we're going to see a collision between the states and our national government in the days ahead. Now would be a good time learn why state rights and federalism still matter. www.thebryanhydeshow.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loving-liberty/support

One of the biggest blessings of our current crises is that they have brought forward individuals who are willing to answer the calling to step up and be a source of light and courage. Allan Stevo is one of the brightest sources out there. His latest column explains how to decouple your life from the people trying to assume control of it. Not to sound dramatic but of all the challenges we're facing at the moment, one of the toughest for me is knowing who to believe and what numbers can be trusted. For instance, The Atlantic (hardly a far-right media source) is beginning to point out that our most reliable pandemic number is losing meaning after a major study shows asymptomatic and mild cases of Covid are being admitted to hospitals. Here's another example of the numbers appearing to have been cooked, and generously seasoned with fear, by the Centers for Disease Control. Dr. Joseph Mercola points out how, shockingly, the CDC is now listing vaccinated deaths as unvaccinated. Why would they do this? I've long maintained that politics poisons whatever it touches. A good example of what this looks like can be seen in how the mingling of medicine with politics is laying the groundwork for medical-based tyranny. Jeff Minnick explains how politics is killing medicine. Actions really do speak louder than words. Especially when the elite keep insisting that we do what they tell us or else. Glenn Greenwald has an excellent article on the recent Met gala where masked servants tended to the needs of the unmasked elite. And he warns that this is the shape of things to come. What is the real purpose of government? The way a person answers this question will offer real insight into their understanding of the principles and practices of liberty. J.D. Tuccille observes that whatever government is good at doing, most Americans agree that it's doing a terrible job of protecting their civil liberties. With the unprecedented power grab taking place virtually everywhere right now, keep an eye out for any attempts to further limit or outlaw the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms. Gabriella Hoffman points out a growing threat to undermine the Second Amendment's restrictions on government power by going after firearms-related websites. Keeping your head in the midst of widespread panic isn't easy. Politicians understand this and they know that every crisis spells opportunity to consolidate more power over the populace. Kent McManigal warns that the U.S. may be one panic away from disaster. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loving-liberty/support

Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security 37:00 DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: Domestic terrorism is the most lethal and persistent terrorism related threat to the United States today. That is why we are requesting $131 million to support innovative methods to prevent domestic terrorism, while respecting privacy, civil rights and civil liberties. 2:27:00 Sen. Jon Ossoff (GA): According to DHS, FBI data from 2015 to 2019, 65 Americans were tragically killed in domestic terrorist attacks. And I want to put that in context by referring to CDC homicide data over the same period of 2015 to 2019. 94,636 Americans killed by homicide over that same period. 2:27:15 Sen. Jon Ossoff (GA): What leads you to the conclusion that the level of threat from domestic violent extremists and the level of threat posed by potential domestic terrorists has risen to the extent that it justifies this bureaucratic focus and this budgetary focus you've requested, for example, resources to establish a new dedicated domestic terrorism branch within DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis. 2:28:00 DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: What we see is an increasing amount of social media traffic that is based on ideologies of hate, and extremism, false narratives, and an increasing connectivity to violence - intention to commit violent acts. And so that is what causes us to conclude that this is the greatest terrorist related threat that we face in our homeland today. 2:28:15 DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: What we seek to do is more effectively disseminate what we learn about those trends - mindful of rights of privacy and civil rights and civil liberties - disseminate that information to our state, local, tribal, territorial partners on the one hand, and importantly, to equip local communities, to empower them to address the threat in their own neighborhoods. Terrorism and Digital Financing: How Technology is Changing the Threat House Committee on Homeland Security: Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism July 22, 2021 Testimony was heard from the following Department of Homeland Security officials: Stephanie Dobitsch, Deputy Undersecretary, Office of Intelligence and Analysis Previously served as former Vice President Mike Pence's special adviser for the Middle East and North Africa Jeremy Sheridan, Assistant Director, Office of Investigations, U.S. Secret Service; and John Eisert, Assistant Director, Investigative Programs, Homeland Security Investigations, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 3:15 Rep. Elise Slotkin (MI): Some of the online platforms and online tech allow easy access for thousands, if not millions of users to donate money through online campaigns. For example, crowdfunding through PayPal, GoFundMe, and Amazon have become popular ways in recent years for extremist groups to raise money. To put this in context, according to the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism, from about 2005 to 2015, just about every extremist group they tracked featured a PayPal button on their website. Now, even though PayPal and other payment processing platforms became aware of the issue and began to ban extremists from their flat platforms, which is a great first step, these groups have persevered and maintained a strong online presence. 5:00 Rep. Elise Slotkin (MI): But just as nefarious groups have changed their fundraising tactics after crackdowns by payment processors like PayPal, when law enforcement begins following and cracking down on illicit Bitcoin use, terrorist fundraisers advise supporters to use other cryptocurrencies to avoid detection. This was the case of a pro ISIS website that requested its supporters send money via Monero, another cryptocurrency instead of Bitcoin because of its privacy and safety features. 6:00 Rep. Elise Slotkin (MI): But we know we have an uphill battle. Our subcommittee really stands ready to help the department with what you need. If you need changes to legislation, if you need resources, we want to hear more from you, not less. 56:55 Rep. Tom Malinowski (NJ): I hear the phrase that it enables the democratization of currency. And every time someone says we're democratizing something, it kind of ends the conversation. That's sort of good. I don't really understand what that means in this context. I think it's an abstraction, whereas ransomware attacks are not an abstraction. They're hurting people, every single day. So I'm not sure if I see it. And I think we do need to expand this conversation to ask that fundamental question, whether the challenges that you are facing - that we are asking you to deal with - in protecting us against all of these social ills, are challenges that are necessary, inescapable and inevitable. And I think we have to ask, what is the good? What is the positive social value of this phenomenon that is also creating all of this harm? And you know, I think when you look at the history of how we built modern economies in the United States and around the world, we started three or 400 years ago with multiple currencies that were unregulated and not controlled by governments and in every modern economy, we built what we have today when government decided no, we're going to have one currency that is issued and regulated by government. And I think I could ask you - we don't have time - how we can better regulate cryptocurrency, but I think if we regulated it, it wouldn't be crypto anymore. And so what would be the point? So I come back to the question, should this be allowed? Thank you. I yield back. Examining the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol, Part II Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Committee on Rules and Administration March 3, 2021 Hearing on C-SPAN Day II, Part I Hearing on C-SPAN Day II, Part II Testimony was heard from: Robert Salesses, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Assistant Secretary for Homeland Defense and Global Security at the U.S. Department of Defense Major General William Walker, Commanding General of the DC National Guard Jill Sanborn, Assistant Director, Counterterrorism Division Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice 06:42 Sen. Gary Peters (MI): But the January 6 attack must mark a turning point. There can be no question that the domestic terrorist threat and concluding violence driven by white supremacy and anti-government groups is the gravest terrorist threat to our homeland security. Moving forward, the FBI, which is tasked with leading our counterterrorism efforts, and the Department of Homeland Security, which ensures that state and local law enforcement understands the threats that American communities face must address this deadly threat with the same focus and resources and analytical rigor that they apply to foreign threats such as ISIS and Al Qaeda. State and Local Responses to Domestic Terrorism: The Attack on the U.S. Capitol and Beyond House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism March 24, 2021 Testimony was heard from: Dana Nessel, Attorney General, Michigan Aaron Ford, Attorney General, Nevada John Chisholm, District Attorney, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin 07:19 Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI): The post 9/11 era of security where the threats come from abroad is over. In the 20 years of the post 9/11 era, they came to an end on January 6th, the new reality is that we have to come to terms with is that it's our extremists here at home, seeking to explain internal divisions that pose the greatest threat. Dollars Against Democracy: Domestic Terrorist Financing in the Aftermath of Insurrection House Committee on Financial Services, Subcommittee on National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy February 25, 2021 Testimony was heard from: Iman Boukadoum, Senior Manager, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Lecia Brooks, Executive Director, Southern Poverty Law Center Daniel Glaser Global Head Jurisdictional Services and Head of Washington, DC Office at K2 Integrity Senior Advisor at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies Board member at the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority Former Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes, U.S. Department of the Treasury Daniel Rogers Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer at Global Disinformation Index Daveed Gertenstein-Ross, CEO of Valens Global 03:28 Rep. Jim Himes (CT): In the wake of the attacks of September 11th, we recast the entire federal government and worked feverishly to defund terrorist streams. To effectively disrupt domestic extremist groups, we need to better understand their financing. 23:11 Daniel Glaser: Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today to talk about how the US government can employ similar tools and strategies against white nationalists and other domestic terrorist groups as it has employed against global jihadist groups over the past two decades. 27:42 Daniel Glaser: Potential measures in Treasury's toolbox include the issuance of guidance to financial institutions on financial type policies, methodologies and red flags, the establishment of public private partnerships, the use of information sharing authorities, and the use of geographic targeting orders. Taken together these measures will strengthen the ability of financial institutions to identify, report and impede the financial activity of domestic extremist groups and will ensure that the US financial system is a hostile environment for these groups. 30:10 Daniel Rogers: These groups leverage the Internet as a primary means of disseminating their toxic ideologies and soliciting funds. One only needs to search Amazon or Etsy for the term q anon to uncover shirts, hats, mugs, books and other paraphernalia that both monetize and further popularize the domestic violent extremist threat. Images from that fateful day last month are rife with sweatshirts that say, Camp Auschwitz that until recently were for sale on websites like Teespring and cafe press. As we speak at least 24 individuals indicted for their role in the January 6 insurrection, including eight members of the proud boys have used crowdfunding site gifts and go to raise nearly a quarter million dollars in donations. And it's not just about the money. This merchandise acts as a sort of team jersey that helps these groups recruit new members and foment further hatred towards their targets. We analyze the digital footprints of 73 groups across 60 websites, and 225 social media accounts and their use of 54 different online fundraising mechanisms, including 47 payment platforms and five different cryptocurrencies, ultimately finding 191 instances of hate groups using online fundraising services to support their activities. The funding mechanisms included both primary platforms like Amazon, intermediary platforms, such as Stripe or Shopify crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe, payments facilitators like PayPal, monetized content streaming services, such as YouTube, super chats, and cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. All of these payment mechanisms were linked to websites or social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, telegram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, gab, picshoot and others. The sheer number of companies I just mentioned, is the first clue to the scale and the scope of the problem. 43:25 Rep. Jim Himes (CT): Mr. Glaser, you you, though suggested something new that I'd like to give you a maybe 30 seconds, 42 seconds I have left to elaborate on you said you were taught you were hopeful for sanctions like authorities against domestic actors. You did nod to constitutional civil liberties concerns. But give us another 30 seconds on exactly what you mean. And perhaps most importantly, what sort of fourth amendment overlay should accompany such authority? 43:52 Daniel Glaser: Well, thank you, thank you for the question. The fact is, the Treasury Department really does not have a lot of authority to go after purely domestic groups in the way that it goes after global terrorist organizations that simply doesn't have that authority. You could imagine an authority that does allow for the designation of domestic organizations, it would have to take into account that, the constitutional restrictions. When you look when you read the a lot of the court decisions, there's concerns could be addressed in the statute, there's concerns. A lot of the scrutiny is heightened because sanctions are usually accompanied with acid freezes. But you could imagine sanctions that don't involve asset freezes that involve transaction bounds that involve regulatory type of requirements that you see in Section 311 of the Patriot Act. So there's a variety of ways that both the due process standards could be raised from what we see in the global context. 48:21 Rep. French Hill (AZ): On 314 in the Patriot Act, is that a place where we could, in a protected appropriate way make a change that relates to this domestic issue? Or is that, in your view, too challenging? Daveed Gertenstein-Ross: No, I think it's a place where you could definitely make a change. The 314-A process allows an investigator to canvass financial institutions for potential lead information that might otherwise never be uncovered. It's designed to allow disparate pieces of information to be identified, centralized and evaluated. So when law enforcement submits a request to FinCEN, to get information from financial institutions, it has to submit a written certification that each individual or entity about which the information is sought is engaged in or reasonably suspected of engaging in terrorist activity or money laundering. I think that in some cases 314-A, may already be usable, but I think it's worth looking at the 314-A process to see if in this particular context, when you're looking at domestic violent extremism, as opposed to foreign terrorist organizations, there are some tweaks that would provide ability to get leads in this manner. 1:15:04 Iman Boukadoum: What we submit is that the material support for terrorism statute, as we know, there are two of them. There's one with an international Nexus that is required. And there's one that allows for investigating material support for terrorism, domestic terrorism, in particular, as defined in the patriot act with underlying statutes that allows for any crimes that take place within the United States that have no international nexus. And we believe that that second piece of material support for terrorism statute has been neglected and can be nicely used with the domestic terrorism definition as laid out in the Patriot Act. And we hope that statutory framework will be used to actually go after violent white nationalists and others. The Capitol Insurrection: Unexplained Delays and Unanswered Questions (Part II) House Committee on Oversight and Reform June 15, 2021 Testimony was heard from: General Charles E. Flynn, Commanding General, U.S. Army Pacific Lieutenant General Walter E. Piatt, Director of the Army Staff, U.S. Army Christopher Wray, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation 2:51:19 Chris Wray: Among the things that we've taken away from this experience are a few. One, as you heard me say in response to an earlier question, we need to develop better human sources, right, because if we can get better human sources, then we can better separate the wheat from the chaff in social media. Two, we need better data analytics. The volume, as you said, the volume of this stuff is, is just massive, and the ability to have the right tools to get through it and sift through it in a way that is, again, separating the wheat from the chaff is key. And then the third point that I would make is we are rapidly having to contend with the issue of encryption. So what I mean by that is, yes, there might be chatter on social media. But then what we have found and this is true in relation to January 6th, in spades, but it was also true over the summer in some of the violence that occurred there. Individuals will switch over to encrypted platforms for the really significant, really revealing communications. And so we've got to figure out a way to get into those communications or we're going to be constantly playing catch up in our effort to separate as I said, the wheat from the chaff on social media. 3:16:54 Chris Wray: As for social media, I think there's, there's it's understandable that there's a lot of confusion on this subject we do not we have very specific policies that Ben at the Department for a long time that govern our ability to use social media and when we have an authorized purpose and proper predication, there's a lot of things we can do on social media. And we do do and we aggressively do but what we can't do, what we can't do on social media is without proper predication, and an authorized purpose, just monitor, just in case on social media. Now, if the policies should be changed to reflect that, that might be one of the important lessons learned coming out of this whole experience. But that's not something that that currently the FBI has the either the authority or certainly the resources frankly, to do.
