Trump IQ Test with his answers marked...

From Mad Magazine...

JPR Nutjobs interpret CA moving up their primary as an attack on Sanders chances in 2020


"Bernie Sanders may very well run for president again in 2020, and knowing that he now has the same level of name recognition Hillary Clinton had in 2016, Democrats are terrified at the prospect of him winning. As a result, they’re already trying to rewrite rules in an effort to give their preferred candidate—Kamala Harris—an advantage. Governor Jerry Brown of California recently signed a bill moving up the state’s primary by three months, which might give Harris the edge since she’s from that state—and more importantly—an early advantage in the overall race. If this is a sign of what’s to come from Democrats, then 2020 might turn out to be a repeat of 2016, and we all know what that means… four more years of Donald J.Trump."

Not only do they, in their paranoia, interpret everything that happens as somehow a conspiracy to hurt Sanders chances in 2020, they indicate that Sanders is the only chance to beat Trump in 2020 and they continue to infer that Sanders was cheated in 2016 despite Sanders losing that primary by 4 million votes and by a bigger delegate margin than Hillary lost in 2008. Not to mention that it is highly unlikely that Sanders will run. He (and Hillary unfortunately) will both be too old. They were both pushing it in 2016.

Very telling.

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.


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.”

Irma hits Category 5 strength with 175 Mph winds


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


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?
