FEC Chair calls Trump's bluff...

Good for her but if the FEC is blocked it's time for the House to do it's job. Investigate this as part of a broader Impeachment process. Time for everyone to call Trumps' bluff(s)...

No doubt about it...

They are sleeping easier now.

Dean Baquet, NYT exec editor, "doesn't see this moment in American history as particularly aberrant"

In an interview with the Columbia Journalism Review, Baquet makes it clear that he does not appreciate how dangerous Trump is...

“I get that people see the phenomenon of someone who says inflammatory statements as a new thing,” he says. “I grew up in the South. I covered Edwin Edwards.” (Baquet was a reporter for the New Orleans Times-Picayune when a candidate for Louisiana governor told him famously: “Only way I lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.”)

“Americans have a way of thinking that nothing like this has happened before,” Baquet says. “Picture what the newsrooms of the New York Times and the Washington Post were like when people thought the draft and Vietnam meant that they were literally going to have to fight a war."...

How out of touch can these guys be? Those who need to hold Trump accountable really don't see a problem.

What does Uruguay know that we don't?

Hopefully it's just a general reaction to Dayton being close to Detroit and not specific intel...

DETROIT, MI (WILX) -- Uruguay is sending out a warning to its citizens--to avoid traveling to Detroit.

The Latin American country claims their travel warning comes in response to this week's mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Although there wasn't one in Detroit, Uruguay says Detroit, Albuquerque and Baltimore as cities people should avoid.

Uruguay's foreign ministry says the cities are among the 20 most dangerous in the world.

Citizens were advised to avoid places like U.S. theme parks, shopping centers, festivals and sporting events.

The exec producers of Person Of Interest suspect Facebook will destroy the world

This is a few years old but just as relevant today...

https://twitter.com/TheAVClub/status/727136785491451904

For the past four seasons, CBS’ Person Of Interest has made an action-packed and surprisingly thoughtful series out of the question, “What if humanity created an artificial intelligence capable of preventing crime?” From that initial technology-hewing version of Minority Report, Jonathan Nolan (brother of director Christopher Nolan, who cowrote many of his sibling’s films, including The Dark Knight) and Greg Plageman have developed a complex and compelling story about the human cost of scientific evolution. The A.V. Club spoke with the two executive producers of the series as it enters its final year this week, with a shortened season and a schedule of twice-a-week episodes airing on CBS. Nolan and Plageman held court on their favorite character pairings, how to smuggle human relationships into a computer, and the belief that nobody thinks they’re working for an evil company—even Facebook employees...

AVC: Do you think that if we had been watching the team behind Samaritan from the beginning, rather than the team behind The Machine, that we would be pro-Samaritan?

JN: I think that’s one of the delicious things about what we’ve been doing with this storyline and where we’ve gone with it in this last season. I’m always most excited about and drawn to villains who have a point of view and have a plan. One of the most exciting things about The Joker in The Dark Knight is, he may be a villain in your eyes, but he’s the only person who hasn’t broken his own rules. Everyone else has, everyone else has corrupted themselves, but he’s in many ways one of the most ethical people in the film in terms of their own ideas. He had an idea, and it drives the story forward. We applied a similar approach here, but even more rationally. A lot of things that Samaritan espouses are believed by the people who work for Samaritan, the same way that I’m sure people who work for Facebook don’t believe that they’re working for the company that will destroy the world. But, you know, they are. And everyone gets through the day rationalizing their own existence...

James O'Keefe and Fox News

have been pushing this narrative for a long time...



As ridiculous this would appear FN viewers are fed a steady stream of this propaganda. So eventually they are preconditioned to believe this is plausible and probable.

Never forget...

Rick Santorum's allegiance is to the NRA & Russia:
