Have you seen this pop up when you try to load a page??

Just got the morning started and I am reloading my tabs after.

THIS pops up. Thankfully, I remembered to get a screenshot this time. It has popped up from time to time in the last 6 months, I think it is supposed to be a Firefox page. ( Running Linux/Firefox, both up to date.)

This isn't hop my update notices work, they all come from Update Manager.

I grabbed the screenshot, then clicked on a blank tab, and this closed itself.

It just occured to me that we are all playing an International game of "Clue"



Ironically, the focus of the game is a crook who is clueless.

this afternoon's focus is what is happening at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

Hell yes he just made a serious threat to the country.

from WaPo..


It’s so terrible what’s happening. You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you, I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher.

As The Washington Post’s David Nakamura pointed out, this is actually quite similar to something Trump said at a September campaign rally for now-Sen. Josh Hawley (R) in Missouri:

They’re so lucky that we’re peaceful. Law enforcement, military, construction workers, Bikers for Trump -- how about Bikers for Trump? They travel all over the country. They got Trump all over the place, and they’re great. They’ve been great. But these are tough people. These are great people. But they’re peaceful people, and Antifa and all -- they’d better hope they stay that way. I hope they stay that way. I hope they stay that way.

U.S. Government Tracking Journalists, Immigration Advocates Through a Secret Database

Documents obtained by NBC 7 Investigates show the U.S. government created a secret database of activists, journalists, and social media influencers tied to the migrant caravan and in some cases, placed alerts on their passports.


snip:
But in the months that followed, journalists who covered the caravan, as well as those who offered assistance to caravan members, said they felt they had become targets of intense inspections and scrutiny by border officials.

Now, documents leaked to NBC 7 Investigates show their fears weren’t baseless. In fact, their own government had listed their names in a secret database of targets, where agents collected information on them. Some had alerts placed on their passports, keeping at least three photojournalists and an attorney from entering Mexico to work.

The documents were provided to NBC 7 by a Homeland Security source on the condition of anonymity, given the sensitive nature of what they were divulging.

Am I the only one who did not know Downton Abbey the movie will be out in Sept???


Just finished re-watching the series today, and stumbled across the announcement for the movie.

Fox news is ..., " the closest we've come to having state TV."


Nicole Hemmer, an assistant professor of Presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the author of “Messengers of the Right,” a history of the conservative media’s impact on American politics, says of Fox, “It’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV.”


From Jane Meyer's article today of how Fox was involved in helping Trump win the election.
