WAPO: Facebook discovers it sold $100K of ad space to Russian propaganda outfit

Yep, Hillary faced not only Trump and the right wing machine, AND FBI meddling, but a sophisticated Russian intelligence disinformation effort aimed at peeling away her support. And she STILL got 3 million more votes. I dont want to hear how she didn't "Win" anymore.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/facebook-says-it-sold-political-ads-to-russian-company-during-2016-election/2017/09/06/32f01fd2-931e-11e7-89fa-bb822a46da5b_story.html?utm_term=.e2d3d2d2b3a5

Representatives of Facebook told congressional investigators Wednesday that the social network has discovered that it sold ads during the U.S. presidential campaign to a shadowy Russian company seeking to target voters, according to several people familiar with the company’s findings.

Facebook officials reported that they traced the ad sales, totaling $100,000, to a Russian “troll farm” with a history of pushing pro-Kremlin propaganda, these people said.

A small portion of the ads, which began in the summer of 2015, directly named Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, the people said, although they declined to say which candidate the ads favored.

Most of the ads, according to a blog post published late Wednesday by Facebook’s chief security officer, Alex Stamos, “appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum — touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights.”

I'm not OK with running or funding anti-choice Dems. Pro choice but anti-abortion? Sure.

There is no reason to run an anti-choice Democrat.

Someone for whom abortion is against THEIR belief system, and notice I highlighted the "THEIR", can state that they are anti-abortion but pro-choice for those who don't believe as they do. It's that simple.

AND they can say they support free birth control, sex education and various other empowering methods to reduce the opportunity for women to find themselves in the position of having to make that choice.

Being anti-choice transcends being against abortion in terms of ones own personal beliefs. It means forcing those beliefs on other people.

Best Voting Machine Hack from DEF CON

you're welcome...

It took DEF CON hackers minutes to own US voting machines

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/07/29/us_voting_machines_hacking/

DEF CON After the debacle of the 2000 presidential election count, the US invested heavily in electronic voting systems – but not, it seems, the security to protect them.

This year at the DEF CON hacking conference in Las Vegas, 30 computer-powered ballot boxes used in American elections were set up in a simulated national White House race – and hackers got to work physically breaking the gear open to find out what was hidden inside.

In less than 90 minutes, the first cracks in the systems' defenses started appearing, revealing an embarrassing low level of security. Then one was hacked wirelessly.

We're well beyond an unprecedented level of dysfunction with this administration.

Every week and sometimes every day there is more news of some other failure or catastrophe.

Is it impeachment or 25th amendment time yet?
