GOOGLE AMASSES PERSONAL MEDICAL RECORDS

Google Amasses Personal Medical Records

Company teams up with one of the U.S.’s largest health systems in ‘Project Nightingale’

BY ROB COPELAND   November 12, 2019

Google is engaged with one of the U.S.’s largest health-care systems on a project to collect and crunch the detailed personal- health information of millions of people across 21 states.

The initiative, code-named “Project Nightingale,” appears to be the biggest effort yet by a Silicon Valley giant to gain a toehold in the health-care industry through the handling of patients’ medical data. Amazon. com Inc., Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are also aggressively pushing into health care, though they haven’t yet struck deals of this scope.

Google began Project Nightingale in secret last year with St. Louis-based Ascension, a Catholic chain of 2,600 hospitals, doctors’ offices and other facilities, with the data sharing accelerating since summer, according to internal documents.

The data involved in the initiative encompasses lab results, doctor diagnoses and hospitalization records, among other categories, and amounts to a complete health history, including patient names and dates of birth.

Neither patients nor doctors have been notified. At least 150 Google employees already have access to much of the data on tens of millions of patients, according to a person familiar with the matter and

the documents.

In a news release issued after The Wall Street Journal reported on Project Nightingale on Monday, the companies said the initiative is compliant with federal health law and includes robust protections for patient data.

Some Ascension employees have raised questions about the way the data is being collected and shared, both from a technological and ethical perspective, according to the people familiar with the project. But privacy experts said it appeared to be permissible under federal law. That law, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, generally allows hospitals to share data with business partners without telling patients, as long as the information is used “only to help the covered entity carry out its health care functions.”

“POWER GRAB” THE LEFT’S LUCRATIVE NONPROFITS

Sunday, September 8th, 2019

 

The Left’s Lucrative Nonprofits

by Kimberly A. Strassel

 

This article originally appeared in the Wall Street Journal on September 5, 2019.

This year’s Democratic presidential candidates have a favorite whipping boy: “powerful interests.” Get ready to hear again in coming weeks how the National Rifle Association rules Washington, how the Koch empire dominates politics, how the right is pouring “dark money” into its agenda. And then remember that these are among the biggest whoppers of the 2020 election. One side will do battle with the aid of a huge and savvy nonprofit political empire—and it isn’t the right. Though the sooner Republicans understand that, the better.


A helpful tutorial arrived this week,
“Power Grab,” a new book by Republican former Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah. Mr. Chaffetz has been digging into nonprofits since his time as House Oversight Committee chairman, and the book details how powerful the liberal nonprofit sector has grown. It may surprise many Americans—those who read daily stories about conservative “influence”—that the likes of the NRA, Judicial Watch and the National Organization for Marriage barely rank by comparison to the assets and revenue of Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union or the Nature Conservancy.

These aren’t only big political players; they’re the biggest political players. In 2018 the nonprofit watchdog Capital Research Center analyzed grants handed out in the 2014 election year by six big foundations on the right (including the Bradley and Charles Koch foundations) versus six on the left (including the Open Society and Tides foundations). Liberal public-policy charities, organized under chapter 501(c)(3) of the tax code, bagged $7.4 billion of this foundation money in 2014. For conservative charities, the figure was a mere $2.2 billion. That $7.4 billion also dwarfed total 2013-14 campaign receipts to federal, state and local campaigns ($4.1 billion) and spending that cycle by independent groups ($830 million).

The Charlottesville Lie

Did President Trump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. That’s what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.

CLINTON INVESTIGATOR COMMITTED SUICIDE IN NIGHTCLUB

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

 

I just tried to post this article on facebook  re the Clinton FBI investigator committing  suicide in a night club and the article  was denied by facebook.    I have requested a review as there are other news sources who are reporting this story.  Nancy

Clinton investigator shot dead in nightclub (FBI says suicide)

thehornnews.com/clinton-investigator-shot-dead-in-nightclub-fbi-says-suicide/

 

The FBI is mourning the death of longtime agent Salvatore “Sal” Cincinelli, 41, a top financial crimes investigator.

Cincinelli reportedly died of at least one gunshot wound in the middle of a crowded Texas nightclub during a night out with colleagues.

Cincinelli was an FBI special agent that spearheaded many of the bureau’s highest-profile financial investigations. In his nine years of service, Cincinelli had headed up investigations into Wall Street banks as well as the finances of the Clinton Foundation. A native New Yorker, Cincinelli reportedly gave up a high-paying Wall Street banking career in 2010 to devote his life to the FBI.

According to eyewitnesses, a number of FBI agents had gathered at the trendy Container Bar in Austin, Texas on Jul. 16 for a night of drinking and dancing. Late in the evening, Cincinelli allegedly turned a gun on himself and committed suicide in the middle of the crowded dance floor. The FBI has not commented on Cincinelli’s death.

The FBI agents on site instructed witnesses to delete any video and photographs they had of the evening and had the bar cleared out, reports say. Austin police were also reportedly instructed to remain silent on the details, and nightclub employees were told to “stay offline” and “keep quiet” about what they saw.

The New York Daily News reports that Cincinelli’s sister, Valerie Cincinelli, is currently awaiting trial in a murder-for-hire plot in New York City.

“Valerie, accused of plotting to kill her estranged husband and her boyfriend’s teen daughter, was a 12-year NYPD veteran when she was arrested two months ago in the twin murder schemes,” The New York Daily News reported on Jul. 24. “Her boyfriend John DiRubba ratted Cincinelli out to the FBI and cooperated with investigators in the sting operation that landed her in handcuffs.”

Valerie was apparently very close to her brother, Sal.

“She is absolutely devastated by the passing of her brother and best friend, and this is certainly adding to the stress of her current situation,” defense lawyer James Kousouros told The New York Post.

Sal Cincinelli was a Supervisory Special Agent at the FBI’s Complex Financial Crimes Unit at the time of his death.

He was profiled by Reuters in 2012 as part of an article on FBI special agents that gave up lucrative careers in the financial sector to investigate financial misconduct.

“Very very bright guy,” one FBI insider told True Pundit. “Such a young guy, it really gets you in the gut. He put in the hours too, was always working hard.”

VIDEO LIBERAL PROFESSOR WARNS: Google Manipulating Voters ‘on a Massive Scale’

Sunday, July 21st, 2019

 

As American voters we should all be very alarmed  about how Google has been manipulating votes.  I stopped using the google search engine last year and now use www.bing.com  or www.duckduckgo.com
Google does not need to know what our searches concern.   We are entering an era of lack of privacy and we need to protect ourselves.

ISLAMOMORIA – THE OPPOSITE OF ISLAMOPHOBIA

Saturday, July 20th, 2019

 

It has been amazingly easy to make the public  accept that homosexuality is normal and that Islam is peaceful by accusing people of being homophobic or Islamophobic.  This article tells you how it was so easily done.    Nancy   

Islamomoria — Countering the Charge of “Islamophobia”

JUL 18, 2019   9:00 AM  BY MATEEN ELASS35 COMMENTS

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  Islamomoria, then, would describe the pollyannish assessment of Islam as a religion or worldview which ignores the jihad mandate, hatred for the disbeliever, sex slavery, inherent gender inequality, and imposition of Shari’a law upon all (including execution of homosexuals and apostates, and dhimmitude for all non-Muslims allowed to live by the global caliphate.) Those preaching or under the spell of such a misguided, positive assessment of Islam would be known as Islamomorons. Perhaps the pejorative sense inherent in this term would serve as a wake-up call to those who listen mindlessly to pseudo-scholarly Islamophiles, while at the same time shaming and silencing the latter from further propaganda. It is the perfect word to describe “useful idiots” so eager to welcome Islam into Western life without realizing they are sowing the seeds of their own society’s destruction.

When words are weaponized and skillfully wielded in the moral battles of a society, they can change the debate landscape in short order — a few decades at most. Witness, for example, a word freshly minted in the early 1980s, when attitudes toward homosexuality were by and large negative. Gay activists coined the term “homophobia” and applied it not only to those holding an “irrational fear” of homosexuality/homosexuals (which is what the term literally meant) but also to those opposed to the practice or lifestyle for moral, medical, sociological or theological reasons. They successfully beguiled a dull-witted society into swallowing uncritically the judgment that anyone opposed to homosexuality as an equally acceptable lifestyle as that of heterosexuality must be intolerant and bigoted, and consequently should be ostracized and shamed into silence until all opposition to the homosexual activist agenda was squelched, and indeed a negative cultural perception was transformed into a positive one.

Muslim activists in the West were quick to learn from this. In the 1990s, leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood in America and sister organizations, all committed to the ascendancy of Islam and its ultimate conquest of the USA in pursuit of a global caliphate, gathered to strategize a long-term plan for the advancement of Islam in American culture. Key to their vision was the makeover of the negative image of Islam in the West. To accomplish this the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) coined the term “Islamophobia,” and the 29 Muslim Brotherhood-related organizations began to wield it as a verbal weapon to shame and silence anyone critical of Islamic doctrine and practice.

One of the then members of the IIIT who later renounced his Islamic radicalism and left the organization, Abdur Rahman Muhammad, revealed the intent behind the coining of “Islamophobia”:

“This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics…. Islamophobia” was a term designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them. This plan was an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood’s deceptive ‘General Strategic Goal for North America.’” [To see that document in Arabic, followed by an English translation, click here.]

TRACKING SAUDI ARABIAN WOMEN BY THEIR MUSLIM MEN

Saturday, April 27th, 2019

 

Why aren’t the liberal women of America marching to protest this treatment of women in Saudi Arabia  ?  Nancy   

Apple and Google accused of helping ‘enforce gender apartheid’ by hosting Saudi government app that tracks women and stops them leaving the country

Bill Bostock   Feb 8, 2019
The Saudi Ministry of the Interior’s “Absher” app is where men give women permission to travel, and also where they can activate SMS alerts to let them know when women use their passport at the border. Above, the logos of Apple and Google.  REUTERS/Robert Galbraith
  • Apple and Google have been criticized by rights groups for hosting Absher, an app which allows men in Saudi Arabia to track and control where women travel.
  • Absher is a Saudi government website, which INSIDER reported on at length last week. It is available on Google Play and iTunes, and has been downloaded more than one million times.
  • Under Saudi law, every woman has a legal “guardian” who can restrict her travel to specific airports and routes, and get automated alerts when they cross borders.
  • Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and a women’s rights activist told INSIDER that Apple and Google should reconsider hosting the app.
  • Yasmine Mohammed, a critic of Saudi Arabia, said: “There’s a definite tragedy in the world’s most technologically progressive platforms, Apple and Google, facilitating the most archaic misogyny.”
  • Neither Apple nor Google responded to repeated requests for comment.
  • Read INSIDER’s full report on Absher here.

Apple and Google have been accused of helping to “enforce gender apartheid” in Saudi Arabia, by offering a sinister app which allows men to track women and stop them leaving the country.

Both Google Play and iTunes host Absher, a government web service which allows men to specify when and how women can cross Saudi borders, and to get close to real-time SMS updates when they travel.

Absher also has benign functions — like paying parking fines — but its travel features have been identified by activists and refugees as a major factor in the continued difficulty women have leaving Saudi Arabia.

HOW THE LEFT ACCOMPLISHES RADICAL CHANGE

Monday, March 4th, 2019

 

To understand what is behind the Democrat’s lurch to the Far Left, you have to think like a Marxist !  Read on !!!  Thanks to Dee Sams for sharing  Nancy

THE FEDERALIST

How The Left Tricks People Into Thinking Socialism Is Plausible

If you want to effect radical change that politicians will vote for, don’t try to convince the politicians directly, but shift what is considered socially acceptable by legitimizing insane ideas.
By William F. Marshall     William F. Marshall has been an intelligence analyst and investigator in the government, private, and non-profit sectors for more than 30 years. He is a senior investigator for Judicial Watch, Inc. (The views expressed are the author’s alone, and not necessarily those of Judicial Watch.)
William F. Marshall

By William F. Marshall

What on earth has happened to the Democratic Party? Even by liberal standards, the policies the left now advocates appear insane. To say they are an order of fries short of a Happy Meal is an insult to McDonald’s.

I’m used to childishness from the Democratic Party, but something is very wrong in the Land of Unicorns and Fairy Dust. Is all of this just the usual hyper-liberal reaction to a Republican presidency, or is there something more insidious and dangerous at work? The latter may be the case, in the form of something called the Overton Window Principle. Let’s recap the last several weeks in Lala-Land.

Consider the “Green New Deal” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports. Her resolution before Congress calls for America to entirely divest itself of fossil fuels within ten years. This is such a ludicrous proposal that anyone with a scintilla of common sense or over the age of 25 should burst out laughing when informed of it.

A Frequently Asked Questions page that appeared on Ocasio-Cortez’s website before it was taken down actually said: “We set a goal to get to that net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast…” That is a real quote from an actual document posted to a bona fide congresswoman’s real-life website.

Yes, it’s uproariously stupid, funny, and deserving of ridicule by Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Chris Plante, and all the other entertaining commentators on conservative talk radio. Ocasio-Cortez is an endless source of fun, and I hope there’s a microphone nearby every time she opens her mouth. May she be the one Democrat who has a long and voluble career in Washington.

But here’s the concerning part: as of a week ago, 67 adult members of Congress signed on to support Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. Moreover, her ridiculous plan has been mirrored by a Senate resolution sponsored by a wizened, crusty old Democrat machine politician, Sen. Edward Markey, who has decades of legislative experience and surely knows how absurd the Green New Deal’s provisions are.

The Method Behind the Madness

So what gives? Has Markey lost his marbles? Not only that, have all the other Democrat luminaries running for president who have endorsed the GND—like Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar—lost their minds as well?

It’s within the realm of possibility that Donald Trump has finally succeeded in snapping the tenuous hold these leftist politicians have on reality. But it might be explained by the Overton Window theory.
