Biden fails to expand Sanctions against Saudi death squad while allowing them to continue operating inside the United States
This week's political theater seemed very dramatic to it's participants. Biden pretended to read the report on the well known and recorded dismemberment murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi ex-patriot journalist and regime critic inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018. The released report was compiled by the CIA in 2018 for then-President Trump who and named 17 individuals as having participated in the murder. 13 of these were sanctioned by the US Treasury Department last week in what is widely seen as a token human rights gesture by the Biden Administration.
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.

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.
