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.

It's partnership with Amazon puts all it's data in the Amazon cloud which was funded with the same money that Jeff Bezos went on to buy the Washington Post with. It provides users with a “Ring Neighbors” app that allows them to gossip about the brown people they see near their white picket fences. What happens with the data flow? The short answer is anything the police and intelligence services want to happen.
Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani stepped off his aircraft at the Baghdad international airport to attend a diplomatic meeting with Iraqi government officials. A moment later he was dead, killed in a drone strike. General Soleimani was the leader of the Iranian Quds force, which the United States considers a terrorist organization but is an arm of their military akin to our special forces, tasked with carrying out light infantry and irregular warfare in conjunction with foreign troops and non-state actors.
Without former Cambridge University professor Alexander Kogan’s desire to obtain Facebook data for his research, Cambridge Analytica would never have had access to the 87 million profiles they used to elect Trump in 2016.
Journalist Max Blumenthal Arrested in Retaliation for Venezuelan Embassy Seige Coverage. See our exclusive rebuttal of the so-called evidence.
Arrest warrants are not supposed to be political. Either a crime has been committed or one has not. Either there is evidence or there is not. The arrest warrant (Full document is available for download at the end) for Greyzone reporter Max Blumenthal lacks basics evidence, contains manufactured evidence, is false based on eyewitness testimony given exclusively to the Mockingbird.
Jeremy Hammond officially called in front the Assange grand jury, held in contempt, old snitch Sabu is in play again
There are certain laws in America that are so important they are written into the actual articles of the constitution. They are mostly overlooked, until now as they were set to prevent things that are archaic practices from the middle and dark ages.
