It has nothing to do with Trump or even USA. At some degree it's not even about facebook.
It is about a company that bought data with the only intention to sell their service, beeing to infulence elections, to the highest bidders. This company is specialized in that particular sector.
Parties from all over the world have links with that said company. Facebook is not only under pressure from the congress but from leaders of a bunch of countries. This is much bigger than last USA election.
I know how much you'd like to paint Trump as a victim but it's not about him.
the worst part of the fake news isn't the fake news but the anti intellectual sentiments underneath. So much is fake that instead of fact checking and research it is easier to call anything you don't immediately agree with fake and move on. Trying to find real information is made even harder, and nobody knows who or what to trust and believe. Everything is politicized now, and the entire poltocal climate will gladly discredit any information which might be politically "on the wrong side" regardless of its origin. I just want to know what is going on sometimes without sifting through "soy" or "cuck" or having to detach myself from everything in case what I am reading isn't real or written in a way as to manipulate
>Experts say it is impossible to know whether a person has been exposed to a chemical agent from looking at a video or photo. The only way to confirm contamination is to take samples and analyse them in a laboratory. However, international humanitarian organisations have not been allowed to enter Douma since early March because of the government's siege.
>The Syria Civil Defence and SAMS believe those who died suffocated as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals, most likely an organophosphate - a compound grouping associated with pesticides and nerve agents.
>The UOSSM also concluded that the symptoms of the casualties were consistent with exposure to a nerve agent, possibly one mixed with chlorine. Dr Raphal Pitti of UOSSM France said he thought "chlorine was used to conceal the use of [the nerve agent] Sarin".
>The United States, which supports the opposition to Mr Assad, said the victims' symptoms appeared to be "consistent with an asphyxiation agent and of a nerve agent of some type".
In case you thought Monsanto was just "feeding the world"...
historically speaking this reminds me of the people that were appeasing Hitler in World War II while he was taking over country after country and getting away with the Holocaust. The people that are against us striking the chemical weapons facilities are no better than the people who appeased and sided with Hitler you cannot side with evil another Holocaust is being carried out and we're just watching innocent civilians died will a brutal dictator like Bashar al-assad continues to use gas like the gas Chambers in the Holocaust. as a liberal I don't like Trump but I hope Trump will Liberate the Syrian people.
>You definitely glow in the dark.
The United States and the Soviet Union were also both state sponsors of terrorism. The Israelis do their terrorism in-house. Terror is simply a tactic like any other.
>The Riegle Report in the second link does.
It does not. It does say that the US approved the transactions, but they presumably approve every sale that isn't blocked by a policy. These were $60 transactions with the American Type Culture Collection, which is not a government institution. I am examining the full text of the Riegle Report and they do not allege that the CDC, which is a government institution, distributed any cultures. Your PBS link does not mention the CDC at all. The 50-page report by Tucker also appears to focus on American corporations rather than Amerian state action.
I am making a distinction here between the government of the United States and corporations based in the United States.
>Cool opinions bro.
It's Hersch reporting something he heard from a former official - two levels of separation, double hearsay - because the former official can only have heard of the actual information through his contacts, and we have no way of verifying the former official or his contacts or any information or really anything that's been alleged at all.
>Just. Like. Evidence. Of. US. Sales. To. Iraq.
The Government of the United States did not actively assist Iraq in obtaining chemical weapons. They may have tacitly assisted Iraq in obtaining chemical weapons by failing to establish an anti-export policy against Iraq, but that's at best "passive assistance." United States corporations did. There is no factual dispute here.
It's also completely irrelevant to the question of whether Assad did or did not do the dirty.
>There. Is. You. Just. Don't. Like. It.
You have provided, in this entire thread, zero evidence or allegations by ANY party that there was a third party executing (or which had the capability to execute) sarin rocket attacks in Ghouta. But maybe I've missed it. Link me your evidence that, say, Israel executed the sarin attacks in Ghouta. Or Turkey. Or America. Hell, forget evidence. Even contemporary allegations by any party, Syrian regime or otherwise, will do.
>Always do the opposite of what neocons say and never trust them
Donald Trump is about as much of a neocon as he is an evangelical. We're reaching fucking goofy levels of doublethink now, though. We have to believe the Germans and Mattis when they say something about Syria that agrees with what you think, but we can't trust them when they say something that doesn't. So really what you want to do is trust them only some of the time.
Leftist women "cry for joy" when sexually convicted Arif Moradi stays in Sweden.
The fact that the people call themselves feminist is kinda weird.
Why would you want a rapist to stay in your country? He raped a 14 year old girl!
“In October 2017, he was convicted of sexually unlawful 14-year-old girl at a confirmation camp organized by the East Ryds parish. The girl managed to fly and lock herself in a toilet after the Afghan man threw herself over her, sat across her and tried to pull her clothes off.
In connection with the court process, Arif Moradi received strong support from a large group of middle-aged and older women engaged in so-called refugee children. In admirership there are people from the Social Democrats' top team in Söderköping.
On Facebook, several of the women accused the 14-year-old girl of lying over the abuse. Some of them also wanted the girl to be retarded.
According to Social News, Moradi was put as late as November in custody while waiting for expulsion. The Migration Board, however, released him in February "referring to, among other things, Moradi's popularity in social media".

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday raided the offices and home of U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, law enforcement sources said, in a dramatic new development in a series of probes involving close Trump associates.
>Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen M. Ryan, said that U.S. prosecutors conducted a search that was partly a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.
>Mueller is investigating whether members of Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia during the U.S. presidential election. Trump has called the probe a “witch hunt” and denied any collusion.
>“Today, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Ryan said in a statement.
>“I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller,” Ryan said.
>Monday’s raids were first reported by The New York Times.
>Cohen has been at the center of a controversy surrounding a payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, who has alleged that she had sex once in 2006 with Trump and was paid money shortly before the 2016 election to keep quiet about it.
>Cohen did not immediately respond to Reuters for a request for comment. A spokesman for Mueller had no comment.
>A source familiar with the investigation said that among the items the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan sought in the raids were information on the origins of a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.
Yes, I mean we have five media whole companies that own all the others and control all broadcasting and movies, only three of which do "news" broadcasting, and those three are all majority owned by two families. Oh, and if you read the fine print, much more than half of those "news" sources are actually "entertainment", and thus in no way responsible for the veracity of their claims, beyond their reputation. (Which doesn't much matter when your target audience likes the lies you're telling, and each member seems to have a very specific target audience.)
That's before we even get to shit like the Church Committee Report, Cointelpro, and, more recently, Sock Puppet.
I suppose there's still a billion blogs out there though, which are of course never untrustworthy nor bias, and consist purely full of old school professional journalism. Really.
>The deep state is private enterprise
What? Wait... Actually...
In any case, it isn't much of a "conspiracy" when everything he said is a matter of public record.
Reuters is UK, and if you wanna talk conspiracy, go to /pol/ they'll be quick to inform you that they are owned by the Rothschild family.
AP isn't a single news company, they are a voluntary association of existing media working through a non-profit mechanism. The fact that they are a non-profit, however, means they have to remain neutral by law (and government controlled on site, since they also are the official vote counters, both federally and locally). Thus, yes, they are good in that fashion, with a mission statement to boil away the bias from the stories they do pass on and strip them to their essentials. Though, when referencing the Soviet Union, it is a sad state of affairs when just about the most trustworthy news source in the US is de facto government controlled. (Even then, they manage to get accused of leaning left, simply for that fact - though also for a heavy track record of support for Palestine.)
Not that they are perfect either, with the Christopher Newton incident, banning the phrase "illegal immigrant", and like Reuters, technically being owned by the Rothchilds.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday rejected an Obama-era plan to make automobiles more fuel efficient in a win for car and oil companies and the latest move by the Trump administration to roll back environmental regulations.
The corporate average fuel economy, or Cafe, standards, were not appropriate and should be revised, the EPA said in a release. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said the Obama administration “set the standards too high” and “made assumptions about the standards that didn’t comport with reality,” but he did not offer any specifics on revising them.
The standards called for roughly doubling by 2025 the average fuel efficiency of new vehicles sold in the United States to about 50 miles (80 km) per gallon, and were seen by proponents as a way to spur innovation in clean technologies.
Innovation? Keeping the prices down for consumers? NEVER!
BREAKING: Saudi Arabian air defences engage a missile over Riyadh as loud explosions are heard in the city
A Colorado-based GOP group issued a public apology yesterday for a social media post that claimed “Republicans hate poor people.”
The Alamosa County Republicans took to Facebook to apologize for the comments on Friday, which urged Americans to be Republicans “out of self-respect.”
"Democrats love poor people because they think that poor people will vote Democrat. Republicans hate poor people because they think the dignity of man is above being poor," the original post said.
The group have since deleted the post on their Facebook page, however, it still remains on Twitter.
On Sunday, the chair of the organization called the post “inappropriate and offensive” and confirmed that the individual who posted it has since resigned.
“Hate has no home here,” the Facebook apology said. “The author acted independently and without the concurrence of any other member of the Alamosa County Republicans.”
“The regrettable post was made with the intention of condemning poverty, not persons affected by poverty, and was not meant to insult anyone,” it continued.
“However, that occurred, and the author sincerely regrets the post and has offered his resignation from his position with the Alamosa County Republicans, which has been accepted. Actions have consequences.”
Social media users condemned the group’s apology, with some saying it seems disingenuous given that the original post has still not been taken down from Twitter.
“You literally have the exact same message still posted to your twitter at this moment. That makes the apology seem disingenuous,” one user wrote.
Another added: “I am a Republican and I have never been so embarrassed to say this. But this past year I've just been so embarrassed of the ignorant thinking that people are having. Shame on you guys for keeping the post."

No. The caste system has nothing to do with that. Their system is based on color. Whiter indians are seen as better while the darker are the untouchables. Of course that translates into more money for higher castes in the end, but the system has no basis on money. That wasn't how it developed at all.
New documents released online and published by a Dutch news website reveal that, like ExxonMobil Corp., Shell Oil also knew the truth about global warming at least 30 years ago, but continued to dig up and sell more oil and gas anyway.
The documents, posted online at the Climate Files website and the Climate Investigations Center, show that Shell researchers were remarkably prescient about how global warming would play out, and the eventual legal ramifications for oil companies given the warnings.
Remarkably, one of the Shell reports – published in 1998 – gamed out a scenario in which, in the year 2010, "...Violent storms causes extensive damage to the eastern coast of the U.S."
The report was off by just two years.
This scenario essentially projected Superstorm Sandy, which occurred in 2012 and devastated the New Jersey shore while also putting lower Manhattan under water. That storm helped prompt a new wave of climate activism in the U.S. that has continued to build.
The 1998 report envisioned class action lawsuits filed after these storms against the government and fossil fuel companies, because these entities ignored what scientists "(including their own) have been saying for years: that something must be done."
Chinese doctors removed a one-meter-long cable from a man’s penis after it was inserted to relieve itchiness caused by prostatitis.
The unnamed pensioner inserted the meter-long phone charging cable to relieve the itch, but it became tangled in the bladder on the way out. According to a report by Chinese site Kanka News via Daily Mirror, a knot started to cause bleeding when the man tried to pull the cable out. He was rushed to the hospital on March 30 for medical attention.
Prostatitis causes an inflammation of the prostate gland. This leads to the development of an itch in the urethra or the passageway where urine exits the body. The itch would disappear over time once the inflammation has been treated.
Urologist Dr. Gao Zhanfeng at the Dalian Hospital in northeast China found the knot in the bladder after a scan.
Dr. Gao removed the five millimeter wide cable by cutting it up in sections using a laser. Fortunately, the man did not use anything metallic, the doctor said, otherwise it would have punctured the man’s bladder.
When the man was asked whether he sterilized the cable, he said it was roughly washed under running water. Nevertheless, he claims the experience bore a lesson well-learned. Alfred Bayle/JB

Food packaging could be negatively affecting the way in which your digestive tract operates, according to new research by faculty and students at Binghamton University, State University at New York.
"We found that zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles at doses that are relevant to what you might normally eat in a meal or a day can change the way that your intestine absorbs nutrients or your intestinal cell gene and protein expression," said Gretchen Mahler, associate professor of bioengineering.
According to Mahler, these ZnO nanoparticles are present in the lining of certain canned goods for their antimicrobial properties and to prevent staining of sulfur-producing foods. In the study, canned corn, tuna, asparagus and chicken were studied using mass spectrometry to estimate how many particles might be transferred to the food. It was found that the food contained 100 times the daily dietary allowance of zinc. Mahler then looked at the effect the particles had on the digestive tract.
"People have looked at the effects of nanoparticles on intestinal cells before, but they tend to work with really high doses and look for obvious toxicity, like cell death," said Mahler. "We are looking at cell function, which is a much more subtle effect, and looking at nanoparticle doses that are closer to what you might really be exposed to."
"They tend to settle onto the cells representing the gastrointestinal tract and cause remodeling or loss of the microvilli, which are tiny projections on the surface of the intestinal absorptive cells that help to increase the surface area available for absorption," said Mahler. "This loss of surface area tends to result in a decrease in nutrient absorption. Some of the nanoparticles also cause pro-inflammatory signaling at high doses, and this can increase the permeability of the intestinal model.

Yes there are other studies about food and packaging. Why does water in a plastic bottle have an expiration date? The plastic leaches into the bottle. Oh leave the water bottle in your hot car in the sun, it most likely leaches more and faster.
The Trump administration will allow Americans to bring tusks and other elephant body parts back to this country as trophies, in a pivot away from the support President Trump voiced last year for an Obama-era trophy ban.
The decision, announced quietly in a March 1 memorandum from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, withdrew previous rulings on trophy hunting and said the agency would allow sport hunters to receive permits for the trophy items on a “case-by-case basis.”
The move contrasts sharply with the position taken by Trump in November.
After the Fish and Wildlife Service announced a repeal of the ban on the importation of elephant-hunt trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia, wide public outcry prompted Trump and Ryan Zinke, the secretary of the interior, which houses the wildlife agency, to put the repeal on hold until further review.
Trump later called elephant hunting a “horror show” and said that it would be very difficult for anyone to change his mind.
Proponents of big-game hunting and the current Interior Department leadership believe that money from permits to hunt elephants would aid in their conservation by putting more revenue in the system. The agency’s memo cites a long-running lawsuit against the ban filed by Safari Club International and the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm.
“The Trump administration is trying to keep these crucial trophy import decisions behind closed doors, and that’s totally unacceptable,” Tanya Sanerib, international legal director at the Center for Biological Diversity, told the Associated Press. “Elephants aren’t meant to be trophies, they’re meant to roam free.”

California has its first illegal alien in state office, after Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.
Mateo, an attorney, was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 14 with her parents, who are also illegal aliens, according to the Sacramento Bee.
She complained that illegal aliens are not adequately represented in state government, and described her appointment as a step towards correcting that alleged injustice.
“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,”

We have this very special word in the US Constitution. Unalienable. It means it doesn't matter who you are, where you're from, or what you did. These rights apply to all.
The only undermining here is the sickness of hoarding. In this case, resources. These cancers have applied and been the downfall of all great civilizations, regardless of skin color.

>Army General Valery Gerasimov warned on Tuesday that the U.S. was preparing to launch raids against Moscow's ally, the Syrian government, as it attempted to clear bastion of jihadis and rebels—some of which were once backed by the West—in the suburbs of the capital city of Damascus. The leading military official claimed that the U.S. would strike under the false pretense of a chemical weapon attack—a tactic that Russia has denied the Syrian military utilizes—and vowed to fight back.
its about time Russia stopped taking the chemical weapon false-flagging and stood up for themselves and Syria

>The White House chief of staff, John Kelly, grew so frustrated with President Donald Trump last month that he threatened to quit, Axios reported Saturday.
>According to the report, Kelly blew up at Trump during a private Oval Office meeting on March 28 and said he was going to quit as he was walking back to his office.
>Around the time of the meeting, the White House was weathering a slew of scandals:
Veterans Affair secretary David Shulkin had just been fired
The president's lead defense attorney in the Russia probe quit
Trump was facing more and more questions over a $130,000 payment his personal lawyer made to an adult film actress to stay silent about an affair she had with the president
Reports surfaced that Trump wanted to target Amazon because of a personal vendetta against its CEO, Jeff Bezos
Trump had just imposed billions worth of tariffs on Chinese imports
>After the Oval Office meeting, Kelly went back to his office and packed up some of his personal belongings, though sources told Axios that it may not have been because he was getting ready to quit. A senior administration official also told the outlet that Kelly was not threatening to quit but was just "venting frustration."
>The chief of staff, one of the few remaining bulwarks against Trump's most volatile instincts, was said to be so frustrated that his colleagues in the West Wing had to call some of his closest allies, including Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, to convince him not to walk out.
>Kelly's reported threat comes as the White House faces an unprecedented rate of staff turnover.
