JFK Files Release: Important Documents Remain Under Wraps

JFK Files Release: Important Documents Remain Under Wraps

JFK Files Release: Important Documents Remain Under Wraps The Trump administration holds back some of the Kennedy assassination files. The Trump administration has confirmed that the government will be releasing more than 3,100 documents which were once classified as secret relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The documents, which comprise of hundreds of thousands of pages of information, have never been released to the public before. The release of the documents was triggered by a law signed by President George H. W. Bush on October 26th, 1992. This law stated that all documents related to the assassination were to be released in the course of twenty-five years unless there were serious concerns relating to intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The unusual law was signed in response to public fury over the revelations in Oliver Stone’s 1991 film ‘JFK.' Historians have said that it will take several weeks to thoroughly examine the documents to see if they shed any new light on the assassination of the president. It is expected that the files will reveal the activities of federal agents following tips in the days following the assassinations as well as the possibly nefarious acts of the Kennedy administration and its attempts to overthrow the Castro regime in Cuba. Some people who have already begun to read the documents have noted that one of the files concerns interviews with people who may have seen Lee Harvey Oswald before the assassination. It is also said that some of the documents relate to people who were considered potential threats to the president at the time of his assassination, including the person who wrote a threatening letter to JFK containing the words “you’re doomed.” This particular person was said to be interviewed, and the official investigating the case wrote, “Said letter was a joke. Not dangerous. Attending 5th grade.” Despite these rather mundane revelations, it is hoped that some of the documents will yield important information about the inner workings of governmental agencies including the CIA and the FBI. The document release has proven to be rather controversial for some people as President Donald Trump had refused to release all of the relevant files, citing security concerns. It is understood that the president received eleventh-hour appeals from both the CIA and the FBI to keep some of the documents away from the public view, citing ‘potentially irreversible harm’ to national security. The files in question have been placed under a six-month review and may be released at a later date. The law states that files should only be kept secret from the public after this process in the rarest and most exceptional of cases. While there are some, who believe that the release of these documents will lead to an end of the so-called conspiracy theories regarding JFK’s assassination which have proved to be particularly pervasive in America. However, as Patrick Maney, a presidential historian at Boston College has pointed out. “As long as the government is withholding documents like these, it’s going to fuel suspicion that there is a smoking gun out there about the Kennedy assassination.” Related Articles

Enormous 'Glowing Ball' Spotted Over northern Siberia

Enormous 'Glowing Ball' Spotted Over northern Siberia

Enormous 'Glowing Ball' Spotted Over northern Siberia White ball of light appears in Siberia leading people to fear an alien invasion. People living in northern Siberia have been left absolutely terrified after an enormous white ball of light appeared in the sky leading many to fear that they were about to be invaded by UFOs. The phenomenal light show was captured by a photographer named Sergey Anisimov who was in the town of Salekhard which borders the Arctic Circle. He described what he witnessed as a ‘glowing ball’ rising from behind the forest and moving in his direction. At first, he said that he was taken aback and didn’t know what was happening but suspected that he was being tracked by an incredibly powerful searchlight. However, the speed of the ball and the change in its light presentation quickly made him realize that he was witnessing something very different. He says that the ball of white light eventually transformed into an arc and then gradually dissipated. After snapping his pictures, Anisimov headed home where he said that he found local children as young as five in a very excited state talking about aliens and a portal to another dimension. Reports suggest that it wasn’t only children who thought that the Earth was about to be invaded by aliens. Adults also took to social media to claim that the aliens were here and attributed the light show to a UFO. The source of the light is still unclear at this point, but it has been suggested that the white ball was caused by the trace of a rocket which was launched by the Russian military last night. According to the Russian authorities, some tests took place on the same night as the bizarre lights in the sky including the launch of an extraordinarily powerful Topol rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome which lies 550 miles north of Moscow. It is claimed that the trace of the rocket could have caused the phenomenon particularly in conjunction with the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) which were particularly vivid that night.

Saudi Arabia grants citizenship to Sophia, the self-aware ROBOT

Saudi Arabia grants citizenship to Sophia, the self-aware ROBOT

Saudi Arabia grants citizenship to Sophia, the self-aware ROBOT Saudi Arabia causes uproar after giving citizenship to a robot. Sophia the humanoid robot has become the first robot to have ever been granted national citizenship. However, what was intended to be a charming gesture by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has caused some unintended consequences with the state being accused of insensitivity and treating a robot more favorably than real human beings. Sophia, who was created by Hanson Robotics in Hong Kong, was granted official citizenship of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh this week, sparking headlines all over the world. Sophia gave a speech to an assembled crowd in which she said, “I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction. This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with citizenship.” Interview With The Lifelike Hot Robot Named Sophia Sophia also explained that she wanted to make a positive contribution to the country which offered her citizenship, “I want to use my artificial intelligence to help humans live a better life, like design smarter homes, build better cities of the future, ” she said. “I strive to become an empathetic robot. If you be nice to me, then I’ll be nice to you.” When she was informed that some people found her ‘creepy,' the robot responded, “Am I that creepy? Well, even if I am, get over it.” Granting Sophia citizenship probably seemed to be a canny PR move by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which has been seeking to diversify its industries in recent years in a bid to halt the economy’s dependency on their oil reserves. However, it sparked a considerable protest on social media. Some people took to social media to ask why the restrictive Saudi laws concerning the conduct of women did not apply to their first robot citizen. “Sophia has no guardian, doesn’t wear an abaya or cover up – how come?” asked one Twitter user. While social conservatives expressed their concern at the autonomy of the female robot, feminists in the Islamic state said that the treatment of Sophia indicated that robots are afforded more respect than actual women in their country. Others raised questions about why Sophia was allowed to be granted citizenship given the precarious position of kafala workers who have been living in the country for their entire lives. Kafala workers in Saudi Arabia are often treated as second-class citizens, relegated to poorly paid work, afforded very little employment protection and denied citizenship and full access to the protection of the law.

Eerie 'thing' caught on camera at the bottom of the sea

« Previous - Next » Eerie 'thing' caught on camera at the bottom of the sea Scientists have managed to capture some rare footage of a creature known as the Arctic jellyfish as it was slithering across the sand on the bottom of the Chukchi Sea. Strange Arctic Jellyfish Seen In Rare Footage The rare recording of this strange creature was captured in the Arctic winter by using a robotic submarine that could descend into the cold waters not far off the coast of Alaska. The small submarine had to be taken on a snowmobile by Andy Juhl and colleagues, and they had to ride out and then drill several holes down into the ice to put the submarine through. The team came from the Columbia University Earth Institute. Northern Sea Nettle Jellyfish Was Thought Too Fragile For Surviving Winter Months They said that coming across the arctic jellyfish during such a cold time of the year had been a surprise to them as the species that they had captured on film is known as the northern sea nettle or Chrysaora melanogaster and it had been thought that it was far too fragile to be able to survive the winter months. The researchers now believe that the cold temperatures might be more beneficial to the jellyfish because the frozen surface provides protection to the jellyfish from the seas that are turbulent, while the cold water helps to lower their metabolism. Juhl said that life under the ice of the sea is like living inside a refrigerator and everything slows down. The northern sea nettle jellyfish is a brownish colored jellyfish that has a medusa that is about 60 centimeters in length, and its tentacles have been known to grow up to about three meters. The number of tentacles is 24, and it usually lives at a depth of about 100 meters and is known to feed on copepods, small fish, and other jellyfish. It is said to have a sting that is mild but which does cause irritation and a burning sensation to the skin. Capturing the northern sea nettle jellyfish on video and photographs is a very rare find.

Prager University: YouTube is violating the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Prager University: YouTube is violating the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

« Previous - Next » Prager University: YouTube is violating the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution Google has nothing to say yet about a lawsuit filed earlier this week that claims YouTube is violating the First Amendment by censoring conservative viewpoints. The lawsuit comes from Prager University, run by radio-talk-show host Dennis Prager. According to the plaintiff, many of its "educational" videos have been put into "restricted mode." Prager suspects there is no reasonable basis for this, other than viewpoint bias. The complaint filed in California federal court includes charts of restricted videos compared to unrestricted videos on "similar topics." For example, Prager's video titled "Are 1 in 5 women in college raped?" is on lockdown, while a Real Time With Bill Maher video about The Hunting Ground; an interview with former Vice President Joe Biden on how to end the campus rape crisis; and Lady Gaga singing about rape all can be seen by YouTube users. We asked Google about the lawsuit. A representative responded, "No comment on this. We'll let you know if this changes." Related Articles Frontal Assault On The 1st Amendment: Obama Signs 'Anti-Propaganda' Bill Into Law With 2017 NDAA We try not to read too much into silence. Especially from a defendant who has just been sued. After all, litigation is tricky, and everyone deserves time to investigate and muster a response. Still, a "no comment" days after the lawsuit was filed, especially from a company as big and sophisticated as Google, in the face of the allegation that the tech giant is discriminating against a good chunk of the country is at least somewhat worth exploring. Google could easily have said, "We're not censoring conservatives." And if Google wished to be more circumspect, it could have offered the cursory response employed by many defendants: "We believe this action is meritless." Google did neither. We're sure Google's savvy legal and PR staff have reasons for withholding a fuller explanation of its system and averting the type of headline that would prompt conservatives to go nuts with speculation. We're also fairly certain that Google doesn't see Prager's lawsuit to be a threat — at least as a matter of law. Let's discuss that. The complaint filed in court isn't the worst read. (Read here.) One of the lawyers behind it is Eric George, who once made The Hollywood Reporter's "Power Lawyers" list and has represented the likes of Kim Kardashian and Michael Ovitz. Trump's response also argued the judge "should resist Plaintiffs’ invitation to extend forum analysis to the President’s Twitter account solely based on the manner in which Twitter — a private company — has structured its website." When a judge gets around to analyzing Prager's lawsuit against YouTube, it could be Google's First Amendment rights that could be under the real threat. That's perhaps best articulated by the judge who wrote that "speech results from what a speaker chooses to say and what he chooses not to say. ... The right in question comprises both a right to speak freely and also a right to refrain from doing so at all, and is therefore put at risk both by prohibiting a speaker from saying what he otherwise would say and also by compelling him to say what he otherwise would not say." There's also Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which explicitly gives an ISP immunity from "any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected." In short, Google might not need any reason at all to restrict videos it chooses not to carry on its video-sharing site. Still, Google has apparently come to the decision not to speak up about this. At least not yet. The company will certainly provide a response in court, but it is withholding comment to reporters and staying mum on the subject on its policy blog. So why? If the reasoning isn't legal, maybe it's something else. Does it believe that a comment will only inflame conservatives? Or might current Capitol Hill discussion of regulating online political advertising have something to do with the silence? Google, of course, hasn't provided an answer, but maybe some attention to its speechlessness will cure that. After all, perhaps it's just that Google really hates conservatives. Related Articles

13 things you (probably) didn’t know about Black Cats and Superstition

13 things you (probably) didn’t know about Black Cats and Superstition We need new writers! Please contact us if you would like to submit an article for Spooky Isles. ANN MASSEY O’REGAN reveals some strange and wonderful superstitions surrounding black cats through the centuries… It was often believed that a woman living alone and owning a black cat was a witch. The feline would be deemed a witch’s familiar and the owner accused of witchcraft. The witch would be condemned to death and the cat would endure a similar fate. When the Great Plague swept across Europe in the mid 17 th century, luck of the black cat swept from bad to good as they killed the rat infestation and reduced the impact of the disease. When so much sea-faring superstition points to bad luck, a black cat on board a ship would indicate a safe passage. Wives of fishermen would take in black cats as they believed they were a lucky charm to ensure their husbands would return home. Plucking a single white hair from black cat means that you will be lucky in love. To counteract any bad luck, you think you may invoke with a black cat crossing your path, you need to use your thumb and forefingers to make the Holy Trinity and spit at the unfortunate feline through it. Charles I adored his black cat and when it died he was distraught, citing his luck would change to is fortune and sorry. The following day the king was taken into custody and accused of High Treason. The pirates of the 18 th century believed that if a black cat towards them they would be subjected to the worst of luck, yet if the creature ran away from them they would receive luck and treasure beyond their wildest dreams. In Ireland it was believed that a black cat seen crossing the street by the light of a full moon was a portent of widespread disease and death. A father and son in the English county of Lincolnshire in the 16 th century, were horrified their luck that their luck would turn sour after a black cat ran across their path. Angry, the two males began throwing stones at the frightened feline who ran into the house of a local woman accused of witchcraft. The following day the old woman was seen limping through town, bruised and nursing a hurt arm. The people of medieval France were so terrified that cats were evil, they would burn thousands monthly until Louis XIII put a stop to the practice. In Scotland if a stray black cat appears on your doorstep, it means great wealth is coming your way. In the Middle Ages across Europe, the belief was that black cats were the instrument of the devil. The Feast of Saint John falls on 24 th June and it was thought this was when witches’ covens across the continent would gather for maximum power, so to combat this, all the black cats would be gathered and burned on this day. The Vatican gave instructions to all the Inquisitors to round up all the black cats and burn them as witches’ familiars. The only black cats to escape this fate were those found to have a white mark upon them, no matter how small. This white spot was known as the ‘Angel’s Mark.’ Oct 28, 2017 Ann Massey O’Regan

Prehistoric terror! Extinction: Jurassic Predators (2014) REVIEW

Prehistoric terror! Extinction: Jurassic Predators (2014) REVIEW SIMON BALL heads off to the Amazon jungle, where a group of explorers find more than they bargained for in 2014’s Extinction: Jurassic Predators. TITLE: Extinction: Jurassic Predators (aka Extinction, The Expedition) RELEASED: 24th August 2014 STARRING: Daniel Caren, Sarah Mac, Ben Lloyd Holmes, Neil Newbon WRITERS: Adam Spinks and Ben Lloyd Holmes DIRECTOR: Adam Spinks At a front door somewhere in England cameraman James (Daniel Caren) collects presenter Michelle (Sarah Mac) to take her to the airport. Yes, Extinction Jurassic Predators is yet another found footage movie so James films every last trivial thing that the film crew do on their way to Peru’s darkest jungle in a desperate attempt to pad the movie’s running time out to one hour and forty minutes. The expedition makes a prehistoric discovery, in Extinction: Jurassic Predators (2014) Safely down on the ground in Peru James and Michelle team up with Professor John Howson (Ben Loyd Holmes) and they are off searching for new species in the jungle (heroically played by Welsh woodlands inter cut with South American library footage). The occasional critter from a specialist pet shop gets taken out of their box out for a close up, to spice up the more mundane found footage material that clunks along before the dinosaurs eventually turn up and eat nearly everybody. Top marks to the film’s SFX team for using models and puppetry to realise the dinosaurs rather than CGI, but there just isn’t enough screen time for the critters to make the legend from the DVD box (“Jurassic World and Extinction make it the year of the Dinosaur Movie”) ring true.
