    WASHINGTON — Jake Williams awoke last April in an Orlando, Fla., hotel where he was leading a training session. Checking Twitter, the cybersecurity expert was dismayed to discover that he had been thrust into the middle of one of the worst security debacles ever to befall American intelligence. Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers, a mysterious group that had somehow obtained many of the hacking tools the United States used to spy on other countries. Now the group had replied in an angry screed on Twitter. It identified him — correctly — as a...

    Twitter buried significant portions of tweets related to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in the last two months of the 2016 presidential campaign. Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. “Approximately one quarter (25%) of [#PodestaEmails tweets] received internal tags from our automation detection systems that hid them from searches,” Edgett said. He added that “our systems detected and hid just under half (48%)...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was spotted Sunday hobnobbing with a person who is currently at the focus of the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s interference into the U.S. presidential election. Clinton hung out with Sidney Blumenthal and political consultant Tony Podesta this weekend at the former Democratic presidential candidate birthday bash. Podesta’s appearance at the party is awkward, considering he has become a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence in the election. (snip) Democratic California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris made appearances at Clinton birthday party, where they were greeted with heaping helpings...

    The Washington Free Beacon, funded by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer was reportedly the original funder of Fusion GPS’ research project that attempted to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump — a project that would later be funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The Washington Examiner reported Friday that lawyers for the Free Beacon — a plucky conservative outlet based in the nation’s capital — funded the project from fall 2015 to spring 2016, when it pulled its funding. (snip) The Free Beacon is funded in large part by the New York hedge fund billionaire and...

    RT ^ | October 27, 2017
    After RT published excerpts from Twitter’s “limited offer” to spend millions on US election marketing, the company abruptly banned all advertising from the news network. This makes full disclosure and transparency imperative, so here goes. On Thursday, the micro-blogging platform announced a policy decision to ban ads from RT and Sputnik, citing alleged meddling in the 2016 US election. It followed Twitter’s report implying that RT was trying to influence US public opinion, crucially without providing context that virtually all news media organizations spend money on advertising their news coverage. RT was thereby forced to reveal some details of the...

    The U.S. government was in danger Thursday of missing the deadline to release a trove of previously classified records from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, adding an unexpected twist to a saga already rife with rumors and conspiracies. The National Archives needs the official approval of President Donald Trump to begin releasing the 35,000 documents online and meet a deadline to divulge the papers set by Congress 25 years ago by The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act. But as of Thursday afternoon, the memo specifying which material the CIA, State Department and other agencies still want...

    Photos have emerged of two of the 23 rifles found inside Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room, which he used to rain down death on a crowd of 22,000 attending a music festival on Sunday. The startling pictures, obtained by Boston 25, show two semi-automatic AR-15-style assault rifles. One appears to have been modified with a 'bump stock' that would essentially render it fully automatic - allowing Paddock to unleash hundreds of rounds per minute. The weapon also has a holographic sight and an over-sized magazine, meaning that the multi-millionaire shooter would have been able to fire in longer...

    Three Miami Dolphins players mirrored one of the NFL protests from last week as they kneeled for the U.S. national anthem but stood for “God Save The Queen” at a game in London. Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas, and Michael Thomas all kneeled for the national anthem in Wembley Stadium, while the rest of the team stood with their hands over their hearts. The Dolphins’ opponents, the New Orleans Saints, kneeled prior to the anthem but stood with linked arms during the anthem.

Due to the quarterback standing during the anthem and the all black offensive line kneeling, there could be some ideological as well as racial animus going on. I included Bill O'Reilly's thoughts as well.

    A group of House conservatives has filed an amendment asking the Justice Department for information related to former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email case. The amendment, first reported by the Washington Post, demands information on "leaks by James B. Comey," on "the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators" and Comey's decision to "usurp the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against" Clinton.

    EXCERPT He stressed the importance of the Senate, issuing what appeared to be a warning to President Donald Trump. "We are not the president's subordinates. We are his equal," McCain said of the legislative branch. McCain also spoke at length about the at-times acrimonious relations within the Senate and urged his colleagues to work across the aisle. "Our deliberations can still be important and useful, but I think we can all agree that they haven't been overburdened by greatness lately," he said. "Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet. To hell with them!"...
