The Biden administration released several reports Thursday about climate change and national security, laying out in stark terms the ways in which the warming world is beginning to significantly challenge stability worldwide. The documents, issued by the departments of Homeland Security and Defense as well as the National Security Council and director of national intelligence, mark the first time that the nation's security agencies collectively communicated the climate risks they face. The reports include warnings from the intelligence community about how climate change can work on numerous levels to sap the strength of a nation. For example, countries like Iraq and Algeria could be hit by lost revenue from fossil fuels, even as their region faces worsening heat and drought. The Pentagon warned that food shortages could lead to unrest, along with fights between countries over water. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Episode 80: Personal Resilience Vanessa's guest is Marie Hale, cofounder and visionary at @revenue, the innovative Chicago sales and marketing agency. The topic is personal resilience. Vanessa defines personal resilience as the “ability to absorb an impact or disruption and be able to bounce back.” Marie has thought a lot about personal resilience over the past few years. She had no choice after the passing of two people close to her—first her life partner and mentor, then a close friend and colleague—and the onset of skin cancer affecting her face. In confronting these losses, says Marie, “I had to learn to pick myself up and put my lipstick on and keep walking.” In addition: • Marie discusses how to develop personal resilience and its benefits in connecting with others and thriving in business. • Marie explains how vulnerability and authenticity have become two of the strongest tools in her skillset. • Marie gives her answer to the question, “When you walk through an experience of having your entire chosen family eliminated and you still have to lead, what do you have to fall back on?” Finally, Vanessa gets Marie to connect the dots between sales and resilience. Marie explains why CRM is her love language and encourages listeners not to do business with jerk-faces.

Pro-Trump extremists seem to have a tight grip on the Republican Party at both state and national levels. With elections around the corner, traditional Republicans are now calling for party officials to move the GOP away from "Trumpism." Some are even wondering whether a new center-right party may be needed — as a last resort.   These concerns were expressed by Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and Miles Taylor in a recent Washington Post op-ed. They join Julian Zelizer and Sam Wang in this week's show.   Todd Whitman is the former governor of New Jersey (1994 to 2001). Taylor served at the Department of Homeland Security from 2017 to 2019, including as chief of staff, and was the anonymous author of a 2018 guest essay for The Times criticizing President Donald Trump's leadership.

“How can you have a digital society where you don't even know what the rules are?”In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Kalev Leetaru, a media fellow at the RealClearFoundation and senior fellow at the George Washington University Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.Instead of repealing Section 230, he argues for an amendment to Section 230 that would compel social media companies to make available extensive dataset collections on what they're censoring, why each individual post or account was censored, and how the social media companies' algorithms decide what content is boosted or demoted.While some argue for repealing Section 230 immunity for social media companies altogether, Leetaru says it would have the opposite of the intended effect. Instead of decreasing censorship, it would only cause social media companies to become more avid censors as they try to avoid costly lawsuits.

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at an internal Department of Homeland Security report detailing how senior officials politicized the agency's response to Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon and directed DHS intelligence personnel to embrace bogus right-wing conspiracy theories about antifa. We then continue to focus on Portland with Nation contributor Zoë Carpenter, who wrote about how the right's relentless propaganda about The Rose City's supposed crises is not only influencing mainstream reporting but also infecting local politics and threatening to derail necessary reforms that activists have long been fighting for. And then we are joined by Greg Sargent of the Washington Post to talk about Democratic attempts to thread the needle within their own caucus and get Joe Biden's agenda passed, look ahead to some key races this year and next and give us an update on the January 6 Select Committee's wide-ranging probe into the GOP's efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.PlaylistNoah and the Whale: "5 Years Time"Jah9: "The Marijuana"Alabama Shakes: "I Ain't the Same"

“We maintain the peace through our strength, weakness only invites aggression. This strategy of deterrence has not changed. It still works. But what it takes to maintain deterrence has changed. “ - President Ronald Reagan ." On day one, the Biden Administration dismantled the Trump Administration's policies to secure and protect the integrity of our southern border.  As a result, we have seen the number of encounters at the border rise to unprecedented heights, making this a humanitarian, public health and national security crisis.  As Texas Senator Ted Cruz stated, there are three decisions that instigated this crisis: The cancellation of the construction of the Border Wall The reinstatement of the failed Catch-and-Released policy   The termination of the international Remain in Mexico agreement  The Department of Homeland Security is anticipating the release of up to 400,000 illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico Border in this month alone. The Catch-and-Release numbers rose by a shocking 430,000% in August 2021 compared to August 2020.  Though much time has passed, Reagan's statement holds true: “we maintain the peace through our strength, weakness only invites aggression.” We hope that you tune in to hear more about the crisis on our southern border, as well as the thoughts of our grassroots army.  --- The Code Red Podcast explores critical national security issues through engaging discussions with experts, story telling of past events, and conversations with Legislators.

The Federal Government is Getting Creative in Regulating Technology

The theme of this episode is a surge of creativity in the Biden administration as it searches for ways to regulate cybersecurity and cryptocurrency without new legislative authority. Paul Rosenzweig lays out the Department of Homeland Security's entries in the creativity sweepstakes: New (and frankly pretty modest) cybersecurity directives to the rail and air industry plus a much more detailed (and potentially problematic) set of requirements for pipeline companies. Matthew Heiman describes a Justice Department plan for enforcing cybersecurity rules for federal contractors that should chill the hearts of management: an initiative that raises the prospect of whistleblower suits under the False Claims Act for failure to disclose breaches to the government. I suggest that this means the notoriously short tenure of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at large companies will now come with a built-in retirement compensation package. Creativity in regulating cryptocurrency was signaled both by the White House, which is working on a broader and more coordinated regulatory approach and by the Justice Department, which is planning a major criminal investigative approach to the industry. Nick Weaver gives us the details. Paul covers a remarkably creative assertion of The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) jurisdiction over a Chinese purchase of Magnachip, a company with virtually no ties to the United States. Despite having no obvious skin in the game, CFIUS insisted on a CFIUS filing under President Trump and then vetoed the deal under President Biden. I suggest that the claim of extraterritorial jurisdiction, which in other circumstances might have annoyed South Korea, is in this case a good way for South Korea to avoid taking heat from China.  Paul explains why the Facebook outage was a much bigger deal than Americans realized. If you were living in Costa Rica, the loss of Facebook and WhatsApp, he says, could have greatly complicated every aspect of daily life, including calls for emergency services. Paul digs into the return of “hactivism”—not to mention skepticism about hactivism. I marshal the evidence that the Pandora Papers were the result of hacks, not leaks—and roast the newspapers feasting on the hack for their utter hypocrisy. Hey, Marty Baron! We haven't forgotten that after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) leaks of 2016, you said “Before reporting on the release of hacked or leaked information, there should be a conversation with senior editors about the newsworthiness of the information, its authenticity and whether we can determine its provenance... If a decision is made to publish a story about hacked or leaked information, our coverage should emphasize what we know—or don't know—about the source of the information and how that may fit into a foreign or domestic influence operation. Our stories should prominently explain what we know about the full context of the information we are presenting, including its origins and the motivations of the source, including whether it appears to be an effort to distract from another development.” We're still looking for that “full context” in the Pandora Papers or the Epik leaks. Nick fills us in on Facebook's extreme reaction to the creation of a tool that allows users to escape the News Feed. I discover that I've completely missed the central Facebook experience because I semi-inadvertently disabled the news feed. Paul offers some surprising news about the limits of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Turns out, it's not that good even at some of the things it should be superb at, like radiology reviews. Nick and I explore Google's acceptance of warrants based on search terms. He thinks that this has gone on under the radar for some time because both government and Google think the public reaction will be bad for business.  Finally, in two quick hits: I brag about the proof that I'm one of the 14,000 Gmail users that the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (GRU) fears most: Google caught the Russian spy agency trying to phish me with a doctored Word document.  And Matthew reveals what the Russian SolarWinds hackers were looking for. From all the SolarWinds bad news, we extract this bit of good news: U.S. sanctions are really getting under Putin's skin. So much so that sanctions are among Russian spies' top collection priorities.

Darrell Castle raises the question of who has the right to decide what goes into the heads and arms of your children. Phrased differently, who owns your children? Transcription / Notes CRIMINALIZING DISSENT Hello this is Darrell Castle with today's Castle Report. Today is Friday the 8th day of October in the year 2021 and in this Report, I will be raising the question of who has the right to decide what goes into the heads and arms of your children, phrased differently, who owns your children? There has been conflict between parents and the government for perhaps a century but now that conflict seems to be reaching the breaking point. Parents are finally telling the government that they have been patient, but their patience is wearing thin, and the government responds with the only thing it has, force. The Castle Family finds itself in good health this weekend and for that I am grateful. Monday the 11th is my 73rd birthday so this is the last weekend of my 72nd year. Joan and I will celebrate the life that is a gift from God because he gave me Joan and she gave me the family daughter who finds herself in the wonderful and glorious golden city of Los Angeles California, this weekend, but I'm sure I will get a phone call on Monday. Yes, parents out there in the hinterlands of America have been getting a little uppity lately as they start to realize what is being done to their children and what has been done for decades. Angry parents have been appearing at Schoolboard meetings across America to protest, not just what is being taught, but arrogance of the way the boards have conducted themselves, and we are above the law, attitude of the school boards. The schoolboards, by way of the National Schoolboards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter on September 29th to the President of the United States urging the federal government to “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. “The letter alleges that parents who sought to express their opposition to mask mandates, COVID-19 vaccination, and the teaching of critical race theory, have been “inciting chaos” during board meetings. The fact that the letter went to the president is an indication that the NSBA believes that the federal government controls education. The assumption is correct of course because even though the Constitution does not confer that authority the federal government through the Department of Education and the Department of Justice has control of it. Therefore, using simple logic parents have probably concluded that if the federal government is sick and perverted those same values will be imparted to their children. The letter denied that critical race theory is being taught in schools and called for a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats. The schoolboards are asking, without any evidence or examples of an actual threat, federal and state law enforcement to go after parents who show up at board meetings and object to critical race theory, mask mandates, forced vaccination policies, etc. It gets worse though as the letter apparently asked that federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, the Secret Service, and the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security “investigate, intercept, and prevent the current threats and acts of violence by whatever extraordinary measures necessary. ”The question of who owns your kids has been answered loud and clear by this letter. The schoolboards own your kids, and they want their kids. Furthermore, if you try to intervene between them and your kids, they demand the FBI and the Secret Service go after you. The Secret Service? What authority does the Secret Service have in such matters? Ah, wait a minute, I get it now. The Secret Service mission includes protection of high-profile government officials and I suppose that is what the schoolboard...

Just weeks ago, as we reported previously on The Real News, onlookers in the US and around the world were horrified yet again by scenes of pain, desperation, and brutality at the US-Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas. With COVID-19 and global vaccine apartheid continuing to exacerbate a public health crisis, with continuing political turmoil following the assassination of former President Jovenel Moïse in July, and after another devastating earthquake shook the battered nation in August, thousands of Haitian refugees have been forced to leave their homes in the hope of seeking asylum in the US.Instead of having their appeals for asylum heard and their situation recognized for the crisis of humanity that it is, these refugees were met by menacing US Border Patrol agents on horseback who rode them down and rounded them up in brutal fashion. Since then, the US government under President Joe Biden has deployed the Trump-era Title 42 policy to mass expel thousands of refugees back to Haiti without hearing their asylum claims, even though the Department of Homeland Security designated Haiti for Temporary Protected Status in May.While the news cycle has moved on from the immediate so-called “crisis at the border,” the nightmare for Haitians and the country of Haiti is still very much ongoing. In this interview, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez talks with Pascal Robert about the larger political context that led to the horrifying scenes at the US-Mexico border last month, and about the deep disdain, fear, and imperialist designs that have historically shaped US policy toward Haiti and its people. Pascal Robertis an essayist and political commentator whose work covers Black politics, global affairs, and the history and politics of Haiti.

Episode 79: Understanding Ransomware Vanessa is joined by Brian Kirk, director of cybersecurity for Elliott Davis, LLC, a Southeast-based accounting and consulting firm. The subject is ransomware, specifically ransomware, as it impacts small businesses. Ransomware attacks on companies with 100 or fewer employees get little publicity, says Vanessa, and most small business owners underestimate the danger. Brian explains that fully half of the ransomware attacks are against small companies. Brian and Vanessa make the following additional points: • Small business owners should not assume their managed IT service providers will protect them from ransomware attacks or give assistance if attacks occur. • Small businesses are strongly advised to set up offsite data backups, implement audit logging, purchase cyber insurance, and devise an incident response plan. • Obscurity does not equal security. Cybercriminals are proficient at finding vulnerable companies, even ones with few employees and a low profile. Vanessa also points out that small businesses provide most jobs in America and make up the supply chain for the Fortune 500 companies. Brian shares the bizarre story of a doctor's office that was hacked and—after paying the ransom—was coached on how to recover its files by a help desk person working for the hacker.

How does the SEC determine if a token is a security? Why is DeFi particularly hard to regulate? What will regulators do about stablecoins? On Unchained, Greg Xethalis, chief compliance officer at Multicoin Capital, and Collins Belton, founding partner at Brookwood P.C., dive into crypto regulation, discussing securities laws, DeFi regulation, and why the US should be promoting stablecoins rather than trying to shut them down. Highlights: why the SEC and CFTC have not announced bigger crypto enforcement news at the end of their fiscal years why the SEC is going after DINO (decentralized in name only) companies what the Howey and Reves tests areand how the SEC uses themto determine whether an asset is a security or not why Collins and Greg think the SEC has recently begun been applying Reves more often why they think centralized crypto lending products should not be considered securities under the Howey test whether new legislation needs to be written for cryptocurrency-based products what makes Collins think the SEC is being “disingenuous” regarding the SEC registration process for crypto companies, like Coinbase how regulators will end up handling DeFi and why both Greg and Collins are long-term optimistic how the US government has a “great history” of respecting privacy and encryption why regulatory pressure is likely to build up around centralized crypto exchanges and what we can learn from the EtherDelta case why Collins thinks most cryptocurrency companies should be regulated  why the SEC is the best motivator for forcing protocols to fully decentralize how smart contracts could theoretically be used to standardize SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce's Safe Harbor proposal how blockchain data makes cryptocurrency companies more transparent and easier to regulate than centralized entities what Collins and Greg think will happen with stablecoin regulation going forward why the US should be pushing to make dollar-pegged stablecoins more prominent   Take the Unchained survey!

More than 4,600 Haitian migrants were expelled by the U.S. government in little over a week. This week on Intercepted: Recent images of Border Patrol agents on horseback pushing back Haitians along the U.S.-Mexico border led to renewed anger at the United States' immigration enforcement methods. Investigative reporter Ryan Devereaux explains how the U.S. immigration enforcement apparatus grew to the scale that it is today, stemming from the war on terror. Since the Department of Homeland Security's messy beginnings, the number of Border Patrol agents has more than doubled; immigrants detained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement jails have denounced mistreatment and unsafe conditions; and the number of deportations has dramatically risen. As Devereaux outlines, since Homeland Security's creation, this trend has continued throughout the Bush, Obama, Trump, and now Biden administrations.
