How do we know that Romney doesn't have a secret plan to install Mormonism as the de facto national religion? I don't want to be accusatory because I don't really know. Can anyone assure me that this isn't in the works?

Tbr,

You are having memory issues. I did not like Bush one bit, and have in fact criticized MANY of his policies, which I considered a failure.

Holder and friends are indeed a bunch of thugs, this has NOTHING to do with my query.

How unfortunate that no one can answer a set of simple set of questions. I'll continue searching, including dropping a note to the Whitehouse. Who knows, perhaps I might get my answer from someone that does know.

"I'm being very very careful when I ask my questions, I try to not be accusatory, because I have no evidence to suggest either way."

This would be much more persuasive had you questioned BLS statistics when the unemployment rate was on the other end during Bush.

Or maybe if you had not called Holder "Thuggy."

"Apparently, some consider it “unfair” that President Obama wasn’t able to use his now-infamous teleprompter. As one man stated, “How’s he going to memorize an hour and a half debate?”

Watch Rebel Pundit interview some of the president’s most loyal supporters at an Obama for America rally in Wisconsin Thursday,"

This is why your posts are always considered bullshit Mark. Breitbart interviews some STUDENTS at a rally and it morphs into "Obama has asked for a teleprompter!?"

I've read other articles in the security realm about Sandia and BLS. In particular was how BLS was so incredibly anal about it's security.

I'll try to find those too....

Seems it would be like stealing nuclear secrets (Sandia) to get to these numbers....

Part II

Locking down the lock-up

This April, DOL officials decided to heed the advice of their colleagues at Sandia and make several fundamental changes to the lock-up environment. According to the Associated Press, it began with a comprehensive review of the credentialing process that ultimately led to the expulsion of several news agencies from the privileged room. There were also proposals that suggested, come July, members of the press would no longer be able to bring their own hardware into the lockup environment.

This week, the DOL has clarified its intention with a new set of procedures that will go into effect this September. In an amendment to its official Policy Statement and News Organization agreement, the agency has decided that members of the press can now use privately owned computers, government-provided equipment or a combination of the two.

However, reporters seeking to use their own hardware must ensure those machines meet a certain set up data security specifications. Additionally, DOL officials will require the privately owned equipment to be shipped directly from the commercial manufacturer to the lock-up location. Upon arrival, the systems will then be subject to detailed inspections.

BLS security?

Funny, I still get this newsletter (data security was a 'hobby' for a while) and remembered seeing this.

It's 'in the weeds' wonky shit but it seems to address the topic well....

Department of Labor revises press protocol amid data breach concerns

Posted on August 7th, 2012 in Government Policy by Simply Security Tags: Government Policy

DOL officials have implemented new data security protocols related to their dealings with the press.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) gathers and disseminates some of the nation's most politically and economically significant data each month in the reports released by its Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and Employment and Training Administration (ETA). As a result, the agency has imposed several procedural changes in recent months to account for concerns that sensitive, potentially market-changing information is being leaked by members of the press ahead of schedule.

FBI, SEC warnings trigger investigation

When the DOL is ready to publicly release its latest economic data, such as the findings contained in the BLS' monthly Employment Situation Summary, members of the press are typically invited to an advanced viewing of the figures so they can review the information, ask questions and prepare their coverage for timely release. These proceedings take place in a secure location, known as a "lock-up" facility, which prevents communication to anyone outside the room.

According to DOL officials, this arrangement allows news organizations to deliver their reports with greater speed and accuracy to help promote a more informed public. But over the past several years, both government and industry regulators have approached DOL officials to voice concern over the data security standards surrounding the agency's press engagements. In an era defined by real-time intelligence, any vulnerabilities allowing for the premature release of data to market actors can have significant consequences.

"Given the market-moving impact of these numbers and the largely automated process of today's market institutions, even a minor flaw in the timing or accuracy of this data could result in a destructive impact on global markets," Missouri Senator Roy Blunt wrote in a letter to Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, according to Bloomberg.

As a result, researchers from the Sandia National Laboratories were recruited for a project, codenamed CleanSweep, intended to root out any vulnerabilities in the secure data distribution process. The newly declassified August 2011 report pointed to non-DOL IT and communications equipment as the potential weak link in the lock-up facility's data protection perimeter.

"The presence of equipment owned by press organizations necessitates that access to areas housing DOL communications and data infrastructure is made available to employees and contractors working for these press organizations to conduct maintenance," Sandia experts wrote. "This access, though controlled by DOL personnel escorting such outsiders, creates opportunities for adversaries to compromise critical DOL communications and data infrastructure."

Someone is asking for the debate rules to be changed. They want Obama to be able to have a teleprompter in the next two debates. It would be OK because if Romney wants one he can have one too.

Tbr,

I'm being very very careful when I ask my questions, I try to not be accusatory, because I have no evidence to suggest either way.

Why is it so difficult to get an answer to my questions, I just don't get it.
