U.S. Government Shuts Down Online Poker Sites

In News, NWO on April 19, 2011 at 1:49 AM

Federal authorities have unshielded an indictment against the founders of the three largest Internet poker companies operating in the U.S. The indictment charges 11 defendants, including the founders of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker/Ultimate Bet with bank fraud, money laundering, and illegal gambling offenses.

The federal government is getting serious about cracking down on online gambling, with 2009 revenue from U.S. players to be an estimated $5.4 billion. So is the federal government missing out on potential tax revenue, and what’s the future of the online gaming industry? Fox Business Network’s Adam Shapiro reports live from the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut.

Obama’s justice department led a massive crackdown on online poker sites, with the FBI indicting 11 people on charges of fraud, money laundering and illegally operating online gambling sites. The websites include three of the largest and most popular online poker forums, Full Tilt, Absolute Poker, and Poker Stars. Cato’s Julian Sanchez weighs in on the sudden crackdown.

Led by US attorney Preet Bharara, the so-called “anti-poker crusades” have sparked debate over the government’s role in online gambling. Protesters dispute poker’s classification as gambling, saying it is a game of skill, not just luck.

According to John Pappas, executive director of the Poker Players Alliance, poker is not an illegal activity — it is a legitimate business.

“The reality is, we don’t believe poker to be gambling, therefore the activities surrounding it shouldn’t be viewed as covering up some sort of illegal gambling activity.”

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the real motives behind the U.S. government cracked down on several large internet poker websites and players.

Egypt Shuts Down Al Jazeera

In Egypt, World Revolution on January 30, 2011 at 10:12 AM

Al Jazeera:

Network’s licences cancelled and accreditation of staff in Cairo withdrawn by order of information minister.

The Egyptian authorities are revoking the Al Jazeera Network’s licence to broadcast from the country, and will be shutting down its bureau office in Cairo, state television has said.

“The information minister [Anas al-Fikki] ordered … suspension of operations of Al Jazeera, cancelling of its licences and withdrawing accreditation to all its staff as of today,” a statement on the official Mena news agency said on Sunday.

In a statement, Al Jazeera said it strongly denounces and condemns the closure of its bureau in Cairo by the Egyptian government. The network received notification from the Egyptian authorities on Sunday morning.

“Al Jazeera has received widespread global acclaim for their coverage on the ground across the length and breadth of Egypt,” the statement said.

An Al Jazeera spokesman said that the company would continue its strong coverage regardless.

‘Designed to stifle’

“Al Jazeera sees this as an act designed to stifle and repress the freedom of reporting by the network and its journalists,” the statement said.

“In this time of deep turmoil and unrest in Egyptian society it is imperative that voices from all sides be heard; the closing of our bureau by the Egyptian government is aimed at censoring and silencing the voices of the Egyptian people.

“Al Jazeera assures its audiences in Egypt and across the world that it will continue its in-depth and comprehensive reporting on the events unfolding in Egypt.

“Al Jazeera journalists have brought unparallelled reporting from the ground from across Egypt in the face of great danger and extraordinary circumstances. Al Jazeera Network is appalled at this latest attack by the Egyptian regime to strike at its freedom to report independently on the unprecedented events in Egypt.”

Prior to learning of the license revocation, Al Jazeera English correspondent Dan Nolan announced that there had been a series of threats from an unspecified source; eventually, the office received a visit from “plain clothes government security” officials ordering Al Jazeera out.

Gov’t agents say they’ve been watching our coverage but also listening to our phone calls.

The live coverage currently being shown on the Al Jazeera Live feed is taken from Egyptian state television.
