Oh the Irony: Russia claims foreign hackers are trying to interfere with its election

Russia, a country which has been accused numerous times of attempting to interfere with elections overseas, has claimed that its own presidential contest is under attack from foreign hackers.

Officials in Moscow said that the Russian Central Election Commission's website was hit by a coordinated attack by IP addresses from 15 different countries on election day.

It said that a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, which bombards a website with data requests in an attempt to overwhelm it, hit between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on polling day.

Greedy Republicans Are Seriously Going For A Second Round Of Billionaire Tax Cuts



Republicans know their days controlling Congress are numbered (235 days to the midterms as of this writing). With a string of special elections loses turning into a noose, they can clearly see the writing on the wall. So as their final act as the party in power, they're going on one last looting spree:

“We're actually going for a phase two which will help — in addition to middle class, it will help companies and it's going to be something I think very special,” Trump said in Missouri. “Kevin Brady is working on it with me, Congress is working, the Senate's working.”

Brady (R-Tex.), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, confirmed another tax-cut bill was in the works.

“We think even more can be done,” he gushed on Fox Business Network.

Of course more can be done. There's still non-rich people that can afford to feed themselves. A few more tax cuts should crash the economy and take care of that. And that's really what we're looking at here: A looting spree designed to sabotage the economy once theGOP is out of power.

Across America, white supremacists are using banners to promote their ideology



Carla Hill, an Investigative Researcher for ADL’s Center on Extremism, explained that this isn't a new sensation but it is something that we should be concerned about:

This practice from white supremacists of displaying large banners from highway overpasses and other highly visible locations is not new.

However, the influx over the last ten months is quite troubling and is something we should all be concerned about. It’s further evidence that these white supremacists feel extremely emboldened – pushing their hateful propaganda on the masses by hanging these banners in public places.

We believe it is important to respond to this type of hateful rhetoric – that is to call it out for what it is.
