Facebook accused of conducting mass surveillance through its apps – The Guardian

On November 11th 2017 I deactivated my Facebook account. So here I am, seven months later and 55 pounds lighter.

Sure, there is some inconveniences not to have Facebook but I truly believe that they do not outweigh the infringement upon our privacy and upon the way we think that Facebook is trying to achieve. Deactivating your account is made very difficult by Facebook and the procedure takes about 45 minutes but at the end of the day I don’t miss a single moment of the social media platform.

Bipartisan briefing to be held on ‘Spygate’ – POLITICO

First and foremost let’s stop calling it Spygate. That’s what 45 wants us to call it and there is no spy and there is no gate. There is a Russia and there is a gate and there for Russia gate. I spy is someone who is put into somewhere as a means of getting information. An informant is someone who sees something that is suspicious and tells the authorities. Here we have an informant not a spy. And until we stop using the stupid word spy because the idiot in the White House thinks that it has good television sound let’s call it what it is Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians. If his homeland security secretary has not read up on what the intelligence agencies have said, they have said that the Russians helped Trump win the election and did everything in their power to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And the discussion now let’s on to impeachment.

‘Too inconvenient’: Trump goes rogue on phone security – POLITICO

Hillary Clinton was called a traitor by this President because she used a secure email server in her home. He is being told that using his phone without the proper security measures is dangerous for a country but I guess our country safety is too inconvenient for him.

What a joke of a man.

‘We are going to take back the country we love’: Hillary Clinton – ABC News

I am a man and I truly believe that women should be running the world.

That being said can you imagine how different our lives would be if Hillary Clinton had gotten those 65 thousand votes? Sure there would be some division but it certainly would not be coming from the White House. She was never a divider and her time in the Senate proved that over and over again. She would have never spewed out hate and racism. She would not have tried to destroy the environment. She would not have reduced our national parks and decimated some of the most of Irreplaceable areas so that oil companies can drill for more Earth destroying petroleum. She would have been fighting for equal rights for all. She would have not attacked groups because they did not conform to how she thought things should be.

What annoys me the most is when I say that it would have been better under Hillary and then people tell me:

“Oh well she was just as bad as all the others, look at what she did with the Clinton Foundation.”

Let’s look at the Clinton Foundation. It’s a foundation that does work in developing countries and yes they have to ask for money just like any other nonprofit or charity but there was never any proven allegation death money given to the foundation had any impact on anything that happened during the Obama Administration.

Yes I wish this nightmare were over and yes I wish she had been our president and I hope that her words are prophetic.

Bill Gates: I had to explain to Trump the difference between HIV, HPV – The Hill

Do we have a president in the white house or a badly educated 10 year old? This man’s lack of ability to grasp onto and hold on to fax is troubling to the point of panicking me. Let’s remember just a year-and-a-half ago we had a President Who for 8 years studied and looked at issues with a fine-tooth comb and came to correct decisions.

These two infections or both sexually transmitted. But that’s where it ends. HIV is a disease that then causes one to move on to AIDS. HPV causes warts and may also cause cervical cancer in some cases. Not understanding their differences is like not understanding the difference between diabetes and heart disease.

He said in several interviews that his Vietnam was not getting sexually transmitted diseases during the 70s and 80s. Diddy never hear about HIV AIDS? If he did not what rock did he crawl out of under?

Here’s the Name of Every Senator Who Voted Against Net Neutrality—and When to Vote Them Out – Gizmodo

If you’re reading this it’s because although I have a tiny blog the company that provides your access to the internet is not filtering me out. And reading my blog is not important to you in most cases but that’s not the point here. Net neutrality means that everyone has the ability to reach out to others equally. How would you like your phone company to be able to charge those who call you more so they can call you while others can’t? I think you would hate that. Especially if they’re your in-laws.

It is important that we make our Senators, representatives and especially this toxic White House understand that net neutrality must become the law of the land.

Trump Jr. told Senate he didn’t recall telling father about Russian meeting – NBC News

I was a Sag-Aftra agent for many years. I have had the privilege of working with some of the best casting directors and none of them could have envisions a monthly crew like the people who surrounded Trump before and after the election.

I’ve said this on my blog before, I have seen this movie before. And the last time the Senate committee released documents about a president this damaging was during Watergate.

People are continuously asking me what I believe the endgame is going to be. I truly believe that people are going to go to jail and I don’t think that Mike Pence is going to become president. Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. He had to know what was going on. His weird Allegiance, almost cult-like, to Trump tells me that Trump knows a lot that he’s holding over Pence.

This is a white house that has no head. And I mean it has no brain. Not to have foreseen that the North Koreans were playing them is mind-boggling. Everything this white house has done before the election and since it’s been in power has been a shit show.

Senate intelligence leaders: Russians schemed to help Trump – POLITICO

This has been a given since the election. And yet it’s taken all of this time for the leaders of our nation to accept the truth that Russia wanted Trump as the President of the United States and they did everything in their power to make that happen. To say otherwise is to be unamerican and unfortunately there are a lot of those unamericans around the Republican Party.

So when Trump in that Infamous interview with Lester Holt where Trump says you know that thing about how firing Comey would look bad about that Russia thing, yes it looks really bad
