    Wikileaks

    I'm starting this new topic because Wikileaks has just released thousands of CIA documents, and is promising more. As it concerns the US Intelligence community, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss it here. Here are two articles about it: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39193008?ocid=socialflow_twitter and http://www.news.com.au/technology/online/wikileaks-releases-thousands-of-cia-documents-showing-hacking-capacity-and-how-phones-are-being-targeted/news-story/15b2a399e2a7f65b89acc3b08d9707e9
  2. Now that the Democrats have the majority in the House of Representatives, I think it would be fair to give the House its own thread. In it, we can post about all the many important investigations the House Committees will be holding in the coming months, and any other important news, like this: I'd like to know who those seven Repugliklans were.
  3. Continued from here: "With primary’s first winnowing at hand, candidates face tough choice: Drop out or continue on ‘fool’s errand’"
  4. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to present one or more articles of impeachment today. It's getting more real every day. Continued from here:
  5. Alright, Updated list (that will expand and grow) of resources we have talked about in the What Now? thread.

  6. So, in the Brexit thread I expressed infuriation with the fact that, at least in my country, people often treat the idea of protecting our environment as a joke. I have some ideas as to why this is. Obviously, the overwhelming resistance from the people currently in power who massively benefit from the fossil fuel and motor industries as well as lax anti-pollution laws. It's like every time there is a step forwards the media will rush to portray the scientists and activists as pessimists or doom-sayers. It's annoying that people won't look at the evidence on their own and think beyond "it's annoying to have to separate my household waste" and see that we have to take this all the way to the very top to even begin to make a difference. People feel powerless and just give up when it's pretty bloody imperative to not give up in the face of mass extinction events and environmental collapse. I also wonder if it's down to science, nature and other connected topics being portrayed as "geeky" and "uncool". I think my generation suffered from a very aggressive kind of anti-intellectualism where we were taught that it was only "cool" to know just enough to get yourself into uni/a good job. This was especially true among girls in my age group. My father always valued education just for the sake of learning something so I was in a pretty small minority in my town (but then again, it had a large number of oil workers) in that I enjoyed learning about the world and how it all fits together. I remember being laughed at by a group of girls in my school because I asked for a recycling bin to put our bottles and cans in. Apparently, it's not cool to care. I think it's great that we now have young women like Greta Thunberg standing up and talking about all this in a very eloquent and well-informed way but they also come in for a horrific amount of abuse as a result. Some of this is possibly down to sexism and the idea that teenage girls should somehow be only interested in boys and other "acceptable" interests. I have also experienced first hand the reaction adults have to being questioned by young people when I was her age, equal parts horror and a sort of rage that you would even dare. I love the fact that young people, in general, seem to be starting to question adults more. Now all we need is to take these young people seriously and encourage them. This might be a very long time coming but I hope that my generation will at least be better at it than my parents'. I think a big part of the issue is fear of change. The fact is that everyone will have to make changes to their lifestyle to make this work. Even when you suggest to people that towns and cities be structured to prioritise public vehicles like buses and trams then you are met with a bunch of people telling you why it will never work. They are unable to imagine the idea that better and more available public transport might make cars obsolete in cities because they have always needed to take a car to get around or have never bothered to use public transport at all. Also, the idea of becoming a less wasteful society seems to make people angry or pessimistic. The biggest elephant in the room seems to be that our entire civilisation is now structured around cheap, replaceable stuff that we often only use once or twice then throw away. Everything from the fashion industry to electronics needs to make us want to just buy more and more stuff just so that their (terrible) business models can remain intact. On one hand, people will usually admit that it is utterly bonkers that Primark will sell you a shirt for £3 that will disintegrate after a few washes but on the other they will just shrug and head right out to buy more shirts that can only be worn a couple of times. Then right at the top, everything seems so impossible to change that people end up just bickering over the minutiae like plastic straws rather than campaigning for things like an end to fossil fuels. It's like how people in cities KNOW that diesel-fuelled engines are contributing to conditions like asthma and lung cancers but they don't see the point in putting pressure on the government to completely ban these vehicles. I once ended up talking to a taxi driver about how he knows the polluted air around city centre taxi ranks is damaging his health but he won't ever swap his diesel car and neither will any other taxi driver because then he will have to get used to a new car. It makes my head spin. I would like to believe that there is hope but it honestly feels like a losing battle. I know that in other European countries the environment is taken a little more seriously. Is this an education thing or is there something more to it?

    UK elections

    Exit polls are chilling. Wtf UK?
  8. Didn’t expect this Awaiting the Reich wing freak out.
  9. Just saw this The people I'm spending Thanksgiving with are not likely to do politics at the table since they're not Branch Trumpvidians. I'm the type who if someone wanted to start some political stuff about how wonderful fornicate face is I'd just tell them off and leave.

    Trump 43: King of Chaos

    Continued from here: "Trump hailed an El Paso shooting survivor as a hero. But his story was fake, police say."

    Impeachment Inquiry

    Rufus, please let this be true: "The impeachment inquiry Trump has feared is here"
  12. Apologies if this is already being discussed. I thought others might be interested in Justin Trudeau's shocking (IMO) history of blackface. Videos and pictures of three separate blackface and brownface incidents have now arisen. I believe that the last photo was from the early 2000's, when he was a teacher and a 29 year old adult (and definitely a time in history when Canadians - even small town teens like me - were generally aware that blackface was offensive). It's pretty disgusting, considering that his party has repeatedly suggested that Scheer is associated with white supremacy, with zero to little evidence. It's pretty disgusting, considering that Trudeau based his entire platform on his special love and understanding of diversity. But this, in addition to his Sikh cosplay in India, and his use of Jody WIlson-Reybould as a prop and a scapegoat, now makes me believe that Trudeau is a privileged user who sees women and POC's as a means bolster his own image. Jagmeet Singh spoke out in response and (IMO) he seemed genuinely distressed by Trudeau's actions. And I think Andrew Scheer responded appropriately by telling Canadians to look to Jagmeet Singh's response - since Scheer hasn't faced that sort of racism in his life.
  13. Although every self-respecting national intelligence agency spies on other countries, it is remarkable that when the Israelis were caught out, Trump's administration did nothing. No rebuke, no diplomatic reprimand, nothing. It's like they simply don't care that the Israelis are listening in to White House communications. Israel accused of planting mysterious spy devices near the White House

    Trump 42: Racist In Chief

    Continued from here:
  15. History Channel assumes i have a burning desire to hear what these two fucks have to say about 9/11. I’d sooner have a root canal without anesthetic than watch this garbage.
  16. Yesterday I posted this in another post titled: Do Evangelicals really think Trump is the Messiah? Today, as I was bringing in my trash cans from the curb the wife of the couple caress the street waved to be with the most friendly while and said "hello." Even though they speak broken English and my daughters understand and speak very little Spanish they often invite my girls over to play basketball. My girls are not gifted in athletics but instead of discouraging them, their children attempt to help my daughters understand the game and continue to ask them to play. These two immigrant families, illegal by their own words, ( I would never ask because it's simply none of business) have been so gracious to our family and simply want to make a better life for themselves. It angers me that Trump wants to imprison them and their precious and kind minor children! Shouldn't we use those resources to imprison child molesters and sex traffickers; that would benefit and protect Americans a lot more than this so called crime of immigration, in my opinion. The more I think about it,the angrier I get because from what I see in my own neighborhood, they are good people just trying to better themselves. I would much prefer illegal immigrants living on my block than child molesters, a drug house, or someone convicted of sex crimes. I can't be the only one who thinks this way!
