Some users of the anonymous web browser Tor have reported that Comcast has threatened to cut off their internet service unless they stop using the legal software.
Comcast completely denies their claims. In a blog post, the company said "We have no policy against Tor, or any other browser or software. Customers are free to use their Xfinity Internet service to visit any website, use any app, and so forth."
According to a report on Deepdotweb, Comcast customer representatives have branded Tor "illegal" and told customers that using it is against the company's policies.

The Washington Times in an article titled, “Intel believes 300 Americans fighting with Islamic State, posing threat to U.S.,” makes the incredible claim that:
The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials.
Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting alongside militants with the group, also known as ISIS.

September 6, 2014 – Once upon a time, the 5th Amendment to the constitution said that a person could not be deprived of property without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken by the government without just compensation. This must have been a long time ago because it’s been totally forgotten in a Philadelphia suburb.The Sourovelis’ home was taken because their 22-year-old son had $40 worth of heroin, for which the parents had no knowledge, according to their statement. Even if they did know, the process by which their home was seized is an outrage.The family was forced out on the street. The police claim the property committed a crime and therefore became the property of the City of Philadelphia. The CNN report shows that this horrible process has occurred almost 500 times in the past two years in the Philadelphia area.This type of property forfeiture is over the top and ignores any pretense that the constitution has anything left to its original meaning.The police are militarized, the courts are out of control, and the people suffer. It’s clear—respect for the rule of law at the local and national levels has been severely compromised. Let’s hope we change this rather soon.
