It is very American to question our elected officials and to demand accountability


A shocking allegation

A Twitter whistleblower has made a shocking allegation against the social media giant to Congress and several federal agencies. Twitter’s former head of security, Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, says that Twitter has “major security problems that pose a threat to its own users’ personal information, to company shareholders, to national security, and to democracy.” He claims these security flaws make Twitter susceptible to hacking, manipulation and disinformation.

Nick Arama of Redstate.com reports that according to Zatko, “thousands of employees — almost half the workforce — have access to the platform’s central controls and the most sensitive information on users without adequate oversight. The report notes that one or more current employees may even be working for foreign intelligence.”

In response to Elon Musk’s charge that Twitter wasn’t being honest about how many of its accounts are bots, Zatko accused Twitter’s bosses of misleading the board and federal regulators. He said they actually have no way of measuring how many bots there are.

Twitter responded by claiming that Zatko was fired for “poor performance.” Maybe that means he failed to keep his mouth shut.

Judging from my experience, it’s hard to imagine any connections between Twitter’s employees and intelligence of any kind, particularly the "fact-checkers." But if you were looking for yet another reason to get off social media, here it is on a silver platter. Remember the cardinal rule of social media: if you don’t pay anything for the company’s product, then you are the company’s product.

 


Paul Pelosi is found guilty

Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi’s wealthy husband Paul Pelosi pleaded guilty to DUI and causing injury in a car crash back in May. He was sentenced to five days in jail, three years’ probation, restitution payments and a three-month drunk driving program.

But don’t get excited expecting to see a Pelosi in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon (unless Nancy buys a designer one.) The judge ruled that he already had credit for four days of jail time. I know what you're thinking: no, not from his marriage to Nancy Pelosi. That's just mean! The judge meant he had two days of jail time credit from actual time served (did he really spend 48 hours in the slammer?), two for conduct credits, and the remaining day to be covered by an eight-hour work program. 

It would be easy to carp about politically-connected rich liberals getting away with anything these days, but to be fair, this is California, where even everyday armed robbers, carjackers and killers are released without bail before the ink is dry on their arrest warrants.


Big audience shows up to say goodbye

CNN drew some of its biggest ratings in a long time (nowhere near Fox News’ ratings, but big for CNN) on Sunday night when they aired the final episode of the recently-fired Brian Stelter’s laughably-misnamed show, “Reliable Sources.”

It reminds me of what Red Skelton reportedly said about the huge crowd that unexpectedly showed up for widely-despised Columbia Studios boss Harry Cohn’s funeral: “It just goes to prove, give the people what they want and they’ll show up for it.”

    "Conduct credits"? Is this like buying carbon offset credits? Which go into the personal bank account of those like Al Gore? I wonder who owns this company. Fancy Nancy?

    Red Skelton was one of those rare talents who could raise hope by telling the truth in a way to keep them at least smiling, if not rolling in the aisles.

    RE: "It is very American to question our elected officials and to demand accountability". In regards to Liz Cheney in the article. My gut instinct is she will run as an independent and like a true RHINO she will try to take away enough votes from Donald Trump to enable a Democrat to be elected to the office of President.

    Re your Accountability article: First Responders are being sacked, fined, persecuted and even ostracised by both sides. If they get the jab they are likely to suffer long term effects and probably get no compensation because of the government being complicit and in denial.

    If they don't get the jab they are sacked, stood down, penalised, or mentally abused. Worldwide hundreds of thousands of unvaccinated highly trained First Responders are without work and not saving lives, whilst the vaccinated are or will be suffering the consequences and subsequently be the patients.
    We, like many others are supportive of an 'International Crimes Commission' that is independent and empowered to investigate, arrest and try all involved in the many crimes pertaining the vaccine deaths and injuries, creation of bioweapons, false climate mandates, food adulteration and propaganda. Being a international forum recognition of immunities given by various governments would be reversed,

    "It is very American to question our elected officials and to demand accountability"

    Really? For my entire 30 years of life it's been about conformity, about shutting up and doing what you're told, and about cultivating a proper victim mentality. What's "America?" You may as well reference the "great society of equals" at the Round Table in Camelot. Who under the age of 40 believes in the fairytale of "America" anymore?

    The Afghanistan withdrawal is more than an embarrassment for Americans the aftermath is more people are living in hostile conditions animals in the USA are treated far better than the people of Afghanistan after Biden footprints have been printed can anyone other than terrorists want to follow biden’s footsteps? I treat biden like I would treat nuclear waste biden is nothing more than waste nothing is built with biden all the resources biden touches turns to waste unusable biden is a disturbing catastrophe in every detail ,biden’s transportation czar must have a large amount of biden’s DNA in him as it is a disaster also
