  • Report: Editor scrubs Kamala Harris’ Wikipedia page as VP speculation grows

    07/09/2020 7:18:25 PM PDT · by UMCRevMom@aol.com · 28 replies
    As the November general election draws closer, there is great interest in presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s choice of running mate — and one name consistently mentioned as a possibility is that of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). Though Sen. Harris has some political skeletons in her closet that could reduce her appeal among Democratic voters, an editor at Wikipedia is now attempting to erase them from public view, according to Breitbart. According to Breitbart, The Intercept first reported last week that a Wikipedia editor has been working to scrub the former California attorney general’s page on the site so as to...

    California Democrat Senator Kamala Harris, a former presidential rival to Joe Biden and now a possible Vice-Presidential pick, has an interesting past that may not play well with the party’s woke Leftist base. Harris’s former career as a prosecutor and Attorney General of California included many controversial “tough-on-crime” incidents, and now they are being scrubbed from her Wikipedia page, as to not upset the Left’s voters. The Intercept reported that her decision to support Orange County prosecutors for “rampant misconduct” and her saying that “it is not progressive to be soft on crime” could turn off voters should she get...

    On Monday, a Texas civil rights attorney launched a clemency petition for National Security Agency whistleblower Reality Winner in Dallas. The attorney, Alison Grinter, encountered Winner through Crystal Mason, a Texas mother who served time alongside Winner in a Fort Worth federal prison after receiving a five-year sentence for “illegal voting” in the 2016 presidential election. Mason and Winner became friends in the facility’s newsroom, where they spent long hours watching TV news and debating current events. After hearing about Winner from Mason, Grinter began corresponding with the whistleblower’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, on Twitter. Last year, the two women drove...

    I’d never thought that some liberals would actually take a stand and call out their colleagues for being totally unspooled for caving to the progressive mob. For some, the liberal agenda they grew up with is now considered right-wing in some circles. Why? Well, it doesn’t go far enough. It has to be far left and quasi-Marxist. The woke clowns we used to mock on The College Fix and Campus Reform have graduated. And now, their toxic agenda is spreading like a brush fire. No dissent is permitted. Just one slip-up or differing opinion from that of the far-left mob...

    JUST AS WAS TRUE when the Mueller investigation closed without a single American being charged with criminally conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election, Wednesday’s issuance of the long-waited report from the Department of Justice’s Inspector General reveals that years of major claims and narratives from the U.S. media were utter frauds. Before evaluating the media component of this scandal, the FBI’s gross abuse of its power – its serial deceit – is so grave and manifest that it requires little effort to demonstrate it. In sum, the IG Report documents multiple instances in which the FBI – in order...

    Endorsement, appointment included in billionaire's connections Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar's politics have become the subject of blog commentary because the web auction site over the last week repeatedly scrubbed an offering of an allegedly genuine copy of President Barack Obama's birth certificate – from Mombasa, Kenya. But the company said it wouldn't get involved in any discussion of Omidyar's activities or political statements. Spokeswoman Evonne Gomez said, "We certainly wouldn't comment on our founder's political concessions or beliefs. He is not involved in the day-to-day operations of the company." She said if a question was submitted in writing, she would...

    One of the reasons why tens of millions of Americans put Donald Trump in the White House was because he wasn’t born and bred of the Washington political establishment. The primary reason why the Washington political establishment wants him out of the White House is precisely that he isn’t one of them. But try as they have, the D.C. Swamp — consisting of politicized factions within the Justice Department and intelligence community, working hand-in-hand with a corrupt elitist media — has been unable to depose POTUS Trump. Beyond that, they haven’t been able to shame Trump out of office, silence...

    Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) apologized on Monday for tweets suggesting that American lawmakers were motivated by money to defend Israel. Omar's apology came after she spoke with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who along with other House Democratic leaders called on her to apologize for the "use of anti-Semitic tropes" about Jewish people and money. "Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step...

    Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Sunday evening for using an anti-Jewish stereotype when she alleged that members of Congress had been paid to support Israel. Omar began by tweeting “It’s all about the Benjamins baby” in response to a comment by left-wing Israel critic Glenn Greenwald in which he lamented that Congress in general, and Republicans in particular, supported Israel. At no point did Omar acknowledge that what she had said was in any way antisemitic or offensive. Chelsea Clinton’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky, is Jewish.

    The Intercept editor Glenn Greenwald wrote a searing column on Friday documenting Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos’ extensive relationship with intelligence agencies and the deep state. The reminder of Bezos’ corporate partnership with controversial government entities such as the CIA and NSA couldn’t come at a more appropriate time, as the Amazon founder has attracted attention for lashing out at what he calls an attempt by the National Enquirer to invade his privacy. Bezos alleges he’s the victim of attempted blackmail on behalf of the Enquirer, which supposedly threatened to release his personal lewd photos if he didn’t shut down a...

    Full tile: Jeff Bezos Protests the Invasion of His Privacy, as Amazon Builds a Sprawling Surveillance State for Everyone Else IF BEZOS WERE the political victim of surveillance state abuses, it would be scandalous and dangerous. It would also be deeply ironic. That’s because Amazon, the company that has made Bezos the planet’s richest human being, is a critical partner for the U.S. Government in building an ever-more invasive, militarized and sprawling surveillance state. Indeed, one of the largest components of Amazon’s business, and thus one of the most important sources of Bezos’ vast wealth and power, is working with...

    An investigation from the Intercept’s Sam Biddle published Thursday alleged that owners of Ring security cameras may have been spied on by employees of the company, an allegation Ring denies. However, citing sources familiar with Ring’s privacy practices, the Intercept reported that employees who were reportedly granted “highly privileged access” were able to gain access to video recordings as well as to Ring cameras in- or outside an individual’s home, depending on where the devices were positioned, using only that person’s email address. Per the Intercept: "Despite its mission to keep people and their property secure, the company’s treatment of...

    A children's speech pathologist who has worked for the last nine years with developmentally disabled, autistic, and speech-impaired elementary school students in Austin, Texas, has been told that she can no longer work with the public school district, after she refused to sign an oath vowing that she “does not” and “will not” engage in a boycott of Israel or “otherwise tak[e] any action that is intended to inflict economic harm” on that foreign nation. A lawsuit on her behalf was filed early Monday morning in a federal court in the Western District of Texas, alleging a violation of her...

    Why the Washington Post Fears the Freedom Center We’re making a difference and the media is trying to stop us. October 22, 2018 Daniel Greenfield 11 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. “Hard-line Republicans and conservative commentators are mounting a dark whisper campaign against Jamal Khashoggi,” the Washington Post nervously warned. It was the third week of Khashoggimania. And some difficult questions were being asked. The Washington Post had provided Jamal Khashoggi, a Hamas supporter and an old friend of Osama bin...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions celebrated the four-year prison sentence handed down Thursday for former FBI agent Terry Albury, calling it "a warning to every would-be leaker." Albury was sentenced in Minnesota after pleading guilty to providing classified information to reporters. He is believed to have sent The Intercept documents that included a guide to informant recruitment and rules for seizing journalist records. "We are conducting perhaps the most aggressive campaign against leaks in Department history," Sessions said in an afternoon statement.

    Former National Security Agency contractor Reality Winner on Thursday was sentenced to more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to leaking a classified report with information on Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Winner, 26, was sentenced to 63 months, with no fine in a Georgia courtroom on Thursday. She received an additional three years of supervised release. Winner appeared in court Thursday wearing an orange jumpsuit. Winner pleaded guilty in June after being held in prison at the Lincoln County Jail near Augusta, Georgia. Winner was arrested in June 2017, and charged under the Espionage Act...

    Former CIA Director Michael Morell sat down with Politico’s Susan Glasser, where he admitted that he and others from the intelligence community didn’t think through the consequences of them becoming political last year. Last year, Morell wrote an op-ed in The New York Times that endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Within the agency, Morell sharked his way up the halls of the CIA becoming the chief intelligence briefer to President George W. Bush, and then acting director twice. Intelligence analysts serve the country. There is no politics involved in any of their analyses—at least not until Trump was elected....

    The NSA has reportedly set up shop in AT&T buildings across the US for at least the past several years. The Intercept says it's identified eight AT&T facilities that are used for the National Security Agency's surveillance initiative. They are reportedly linked to a program called "Fairview," started in 1985, and AT&T is the only company involved with it. The facilities are spread out in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC, according to the report. Last year, The Intercept reported on a likely NSA surveillance site in New York. Monday's report is...

    THE CRIMINALIZATION OF political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so...
