Former Reporters Bash International Business Times

Complaints include not being paid, or being paid only once per month, paying for only 5 days in a hotel to cover a 2-week event (“Asked us to crash with friends for the rest”), reported connection to a religious outfit, and this:

Cole Stangler, who covered labor and the workplace for the publication, touched upon the experience of working for a company whose founder advocates the belief that there is a “cure” for homosexuality, according to a Facebook post published by The Guardian.

Hillary Blames Russia for Hacking DNC emails…As She Takes Money From Russians

Moon of Alabama offers a nice counter-point to Hillary’s claim that Putin is behind the hacking of the DNC emails:

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million.

And, naturally, Slick was in on the payoff, too:

Mr. Clinton received $500,000 … from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin


Funded by Wall Street.
Viewed as untrustworthy.
Private email server.
Emailing classified information via that insecure server.
In bed with corporate America.
Has promoted fracking.
Has promoted the TPP.
A liar who will say anything to get elected.
That’s just Hillary.

Then there’s the DNC:

On the eve of the convention at which Hillary Clinton is to be confirmed as presidential candidate, the Democratic Party has been plunged into crisis – the US media is brimful of ugly and embarrassing stories from within the party’s head office, all based on 20,000 emails dropped on Friday evening by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

Leaked Emails Show DNC Screwed Bernie

It shouldn’t be surprising.
The political parties take care of their own first.
Bernie wasn’t a true-blue “Democrat”, so he couldn’t have expected fair treatment from the DNC.

But it’s interesting to see some of the stuff that took place.

Twitter hashtag #DNCleaks

Here’s an excerpt from the NY Post:

A top Democratic Party official tried to use Bernie Sanders’ religious beliefs to hurt his presidential campaign, according to a startling internal email.

The suggestion of undercutting Sanders based on religion is included in one of 19,252 hacked emails dumped Friday — just ahead of Democratic convention in Philadelphia — by WikiLeaks. The emails appear to have been stolen by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0.”

In one disturbing email dated May 5, 2016 with the subject line “No s–t,” the chief financial officer of the Democratic National Committee, Brad Marshall, plotted how to try to portray Sanders, who is Jewish, as an atheist.

If You’re a Liberal, the Democratic Party is NOT Your Party

The Hillaryites on the DNC platform committee refused to ban fracking, refused to oppose TPP, refused to support universal healthcare, refused to oppose Israel’s brutal treatment of Palestinians and the theft of their land.

This is NOT the Democratic Party you may think it is (or used to be).
Today’s Democrats depend as much as Republicans on corporate and Wall Street money.

Both parties are bought and paid for.

If you’re looking for a political party which promotes liberal values, you should go Green.  The Green Party accepts no corporate payola and is focused on people and the environment, not corporate payola.

Getting Rid of Your Google Tracks

Here’s how to scrub Google’s brain and make it forget you did any of that.

Google collects information when you use its tools like search and YouTube, and saves that to your personal profile so it can feed you targeted ads later on. But with the company’s new My Activity tool, you can knock that info into oblivion.

1. Go to, and be prepared to sign into your account again for security purposes. You can search through your data or filter your activity by date or product (YouTube, Search, Ads, Shopping, etc). Only you can see this information.

2. Find the record you want to delete, and open the menu for that item by clicking on the three dots on the right end.

Clinton Email Scandal: FBI Says No Harm, No Foul

Hillary dodges the bullet again.  The FBI director says he doesn’t believe any prosecutor would find grounds for bringing charges.

In fact, Hillary is part of the establishment elite that is not held to the same standards as the commoners.  If some low-level State Department employee had done what Hillary did, you can bet that low-level employee would by now be cooling his/her heels in a jail cell.

There are two “justice” systems in this country, and chances are that you don’t have access to the “justice” system that applies to the rich and the connected.
