Bureau of Prisons failed to monitor
terrorist communications, IG report says

Original Article

The Bureau of Prisons failed to adequately monitor thousands of communications from more than 500 inmates with ties to terrorism, according to a Justice Department inspector general report released Wednesday. In the nearly 70-page report, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz wrote that the BOP did not take appropriate steps to review the email, phone calls, postage mail, video sessions and cellblock conversations of domestic and international terrorist inmates. For example, the BOP failed to flag a letter that a high-risk inmate received from his wife detailing her intent to compromise a staff member at his prison. The BOP also missed a threatening letter

Comments:

Instead of monitoring known threats, our federal machine specifically ignores Muslim terrorists and tries instead to monitor everyone else, and to cobble together a fake impeachment against our president. Remarkably Third World of us.

They "failed" and "missed" some things by design...just as they missed a few things with Epstein and Bulger.

They didn't fail or miss. You can't fail or miss if you don't try. The Obama Administration unloaded their guns and walked away, knowing the terrorists would continue to harm Americans.

But the feds had lots of time for the FBI, DOJ and "intelligence agencies" (term used loosely) to monitor their political opponents.

I am not surprised as I use to work for the BOP as a correctional officer back in the 1990s. We had an inmate who was being monitored and spoke Hebrew whenever he called certain people. No one at the facility spoke Hebrew so his calls were never translated. We'd contact the FBI but they weren't any help. BTW - all of these terrorists should not be in our prison system. They are terrorists not common criminals. You are caught, interrogated and then executed.

Chances are that during the Obama era the BOP was counseled by the Administration that treating US citizen or foreign origin Muslim inmates, any differently than the rest of of the prison population, would be considered to be unlawful discrimination rendering BOP personnel, supervisors, and managers subject to administrative disciplinary action along with criminal prosecution.

$349B stimulus comes too late

The reeling US newspaper industry will be eligible to tap a portion of the $2 trillion stimulus package that contains $349 billion earmarked for small businesses. But the potential rescue package comes too late to help dozens of newsrooms that have been slashing jobs as shuttered local businesses stop advertising. News advertising has plummeted between 20 and 30 percent in the past two weeks compared to a year ago, according to the International News Media Association. The Washingtonian stopped using freelancers, laid off all its fellows and instituted a 10 percent pay cut for surviving staffers. The Austin Chronicle is moving from a weekly

On Feb. 13, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent out an email with what the author described as an 'URGENT' call for help. The agency was struggling with one of its most important duties: keeping track of Americans suspected of having the novel coronavirus. It had 'an ongoing issue' with organizing—and sometimes flat-out losing—forms sent by local agencies about people thought to be infected. The email listed job postings for people who could track or retrieve this paperwork.(Snip) The documents—mostly emails—provide a behind-the-scenes peek into the messy early stages of the U.S. response

Two of the Navy’s newest aircraft carriers require a unique system to keep the toilets unclogged and cost $400,000 to fix each clog, a government watchdog said in a report released Tuesday. The USS Gerald R. Ford and USS George H.W. Bush, both based in Virginia, were constructed with a toilet system similar to those used on a commercial plane. But with 4,000 people on board the ship, the toilets require an acid flush of the system. “While each acid flush costs about $400,000, the Navy has yet to determine how often and for how many ships this action will need to be repeated,

President Trump waged a full-scale political attack on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, complete with opposition research, as he pointed out that Cuomo could have bought more ventilators five years ago to protect his state against a pandemic. Trump appeared on Fox News Channel Tuesday from the White House Rose Garden and handed anchor Bill Hemmer an article, 'It says New York Gov. Cuomo rejected buying recommended 16,000 ventilators in 2015 for the pandemic, for a pandemic, establish death panels and lotteries instead,' Trump said.

Officials did not say how the 31-year-old Mexican was infected, nor did it reveal any other details of the particular case, other than to say the person has been quarantined and is receiving medical care. “Consistent with CDC guidelines, those who have come in contact with the individual have been cohorted and are being monitored for symptoms. ICE is suspending intake at the facility until further information is available,” the agency said.

One of the cornerstones of the Senate coronavirus stimulus package is the direct payment of money from the federal government to American individuals and families. In the middle of the bill's hundreds of pages are details regarding exactly who can expect to receive money and how much they can expect. Here is a breakdown. Who is eligible? The bill makes clear that everyone is eligible except for nonresident aliens and those who can be used as the basis for deductions for another person. "Seniors, veterans, the unemployed and low-income Americans would be eligible too," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Wednesday.

Epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, who created the highly-cited Imperial College London coronavirus model, which has been cited by organizations like The New York Times and has been instrumental in governmental policy decision-making, offered a massive revision to his model on Wednesday. Ferguson’s model projected 2.2 million dead people in the United States and 500,000 in the U.K. from COVID-19 if no action were taken to slow the virus and blunt its curve. Ferguson thus dropped his prediction from 500,000 dead to 20,000.

Dale didn't check any facts, lamely noticing that Trump can't have any rallies, but he repeats his catch phrases like "big beautiful wall." Thanks, genius.

The White House criticized Wednesday the Seattle-area NPR station’s recent decision to stop airing the coronavirus task force press briefings. “It’s not surprising, but also a failure of their duty to the American people, that some media outlets would choose to block their audiences from receiving accurate, up-to-date information on President Trump’s whole-of-government approach to slowing the spread of COVID-19,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told Daily Caller. (snip) KUOW, the NPR station broadcasting across Washington’s Puget Sound, announced Tuesday night that they “will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information that cannot be fact checked in real time.”
