In 2017 “America” is always blamed for slavery, imperialism, and the genocide of the Indians. However, when was the last time you heard Britain, France, Spain or Portugal blamed for any of these things?
Yesterday morning executives from Facebook testified in front of US Congress, in part discussing their role in spreading fake news headlines in the months leading up to the 2016 Presidential election. Here is what we learned.
Next week there will be a march on Washington to protest Donald Trumps decision to repeal net neutrality laws earlier this year. By now, it is no secret that the vast majority of “internet activists” all support the idea of Net Neutrality, but as a self proclaimed internet activist myself, here is where I think they get it wrong on this issue.
Under Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions had vowed to arrest medical marijuana patients nationwide and strip funding to any states which had passed marijuana laws conflicting with Federal Laws on that matter. Thankfully though, US Congress has overwhelmingly voted to block the Trump Administration from enforcing this policy in the future.
How debt defines American Society, on both the Federal and personal levels.
Leaked documents reveal that Donald Trump soon plans on overturning an Executive Order banning the sale of military gear and equipment to US police departments. This article isn’t “anti-police,” I just do not think local police departments need armored vehicles, grenade launchers and .50 caliber machine guns. Do you? However, under Donald Trump, this is exactly what they will be receiving.
On Friday morning, Donald Trump announced that he would be elevating US Cyber Command to report directly to the US Secretary of Defense, effectively making the agency the newest branch of the US military. The US now joins other countries and organizations such as Germany, Russia and NATO, whom have all previously established military cyber commands structures of their own over the course of the last year.
Earlier today Donald Trump’s Chief White House Strategist, Steve Bannon, formally resigned from office. In this article I will attempt to explain why many of Trumps failures to date can be directly traced to Steve Bannon’s guidance and why his “firing” today might have been the best move that Trump has made as President to date, even if Trump only became President because of Bannon in the first place.
This week Donald Trump declared that America’s “opioid Epidemic” is now officially a “National Emergency.” However, dont blame the poor drug user down the street for all of this, they are only the bottom of a much larger food chain. The real problem is being caused by pharmaceutical companies, doctors and pharmacists whom all “legally” produce, sell and distribute all of these “drugs” into society in the first place!
Earlier this year the US Government announced it would be transferring 100% of systems over to Microsoft by 2018, despite other world leaders banning the company from Government use in their countries citing National Security concerns. Now, a new cyber security study has found Kapersky to be the safest and most effective anti-virus software specifically for Microsoft systems, two weeks after the US Government banned Kapersky from Federal use.
Another day and another Freedom of Information Act lawsuit has been filed against the United States Government. This time, the US Department of Justice is being sued for failing to comply with US law, which demands that the agency make all legal records and opinions afforded to them by the Office of Legal Council a matter of public record. The lawsuit hopes to establish whether or not the US Government knew it would be blatantly violating US Law while drafting and ultimately finalizing controversial surveillance laws dating back to 2001.
Breaking down the fallacious notion that we need to pay money to an insurance companies just to receive health care in the first place.
