The mainstream media, predictably, has taken the focus off of Sanders following his narrow victory in New Hampshire to focus on the relative position of the candidates that came in second, third, and fourth. This takes the spotlight off of the election rigging that happened in the granite state exactly where and how The Mockingbird predicted it would happen on Monday February 10th in this article where we examined the obvious and long standing security flaws in tabulation equipment.

A great deal of useless noise has been made about Facebook's seeming support for Donald Trump and the tech giant's refusal do much to curb it's selective censorship of the collective news feed. Within Facebook, right wing support seems to come from early investor Peter Thiel. Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife Priscilla Chan, seem firmly in the center of the political spectrum when they put their considerable money where their mouths are not. The billionaire couple put considerable effort into strategically supporting whatever centrist was put forth since at least 2017.

Fascist Group Patriot Front Holds Suprise Rally in DC, Police Surrender Capital Building Without A Fight
Patriot Front is a fascist group. There is no doubt about this despite any attempt to soft sell their ideology. Their printed materials include stickers with a picture of the continental United States and the slogan “Not Stolen. Conquered.” This is not a group that likes genocide a little bit, they revel in it. Here in Columbus OH they have been quietly putting up stickers near several different college campuses over the past couple of months. Around the country they have hung banners with their messages from overpasses for early morning commuters.
Buttigieg Complaints Force Iowa Recount as Sanders Surges Despite Widespread Proof of Tampering in Buttigieg's Favor
No American election tampering would be complete without racism. It appears that in one of the whitest states in the union, non-white votes for a candidate outside the establishment were counted last, and when those votes proved to be decisive to the outcome of the contest, the vote counting was stopped and taken even further into the backroom
There is a certain joy in a newsroom when an accurate prediction of the future comes to pass. Two days ago the Mockingbird published an examination of secret untested cellphone app that would be used to tally yesterday's Iowa caucus vote.
In 2016 the Iowa caucus was decided by a coin toss for Hillary Clinton. More correctly seven coin tosses of which Clinton won six. Perhaps Clinton used up all of her luck in those moments as successive coin tosses won by one party six times in a row happens 1 in 64 times. The votes in face to face meetings are re-tabulated at the state level and delegates are awarded by some method that is so far from transparent that in 2016 J.
Watch what you say online. Always say pro-social things. Say normal things. Act like you came here from the 1950s. Do not support sex workers or be a sex worker. Remember that we are watching you. Obey, or you will sleep in the cold. All of those commands and the punishment sound like lines to be said by a b-movie villain. They are not. They are the corporate policy of America's #1 not landlord landlord, AirBnB.
On January 7th, the country witnessed the worst cave in to right wing demands for media control in living history. If the Carlsbad caverns were renamed the Cave of Truth and suddenly collapsed the magnitude could not be greater. CNN reached an undisclosed settlement with both the family of high school student and right wing troll Nicholas Sandman and the Archdiocese of Kentucky in a case that revolved around the young Trump supporter's well publicized attack on Native Elder Nathan Phillips.
A few months ago a Facebook advertisement piqued my interest about how the company was leveraging my user data to target ads in my feed. What began as a passing curiosity about how the company targets advertising, turned into a deep dive at big tech's hidden and unregulated practices. The research led me to construct an experiment that exposed not only a deep level of corporate surveillance into our everyday lives, but also a cross-platform and cross-company effort to integrate our personal data, and use it to manipulate user behavior.
