Hillary's apology

Hillary Clinton’s claim that women who didn’t vote for her were told not to by their husbands elicited plenty of heated reactions online, including some from powerful women who didn’t need a man to tell them to be royally ticked off.

The Facebook data story

March 20, 2018

You’d think there would be enough in the news these days that really is shocking without seeing the stock market roiled by a giant wave of pretend shock over the “news” that details about users of social media platforms such as Facebook are mined and sold to companies that hope to persuade said users to do, buy or like certain things (for those who truly did just arrive here from the planet Antares, that’s known as “advertising.”)
I’ve been watching in amazement all the fuss and fury over the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, simply because career investigators and ethics officials in his own agency recommended it due to alleged offenses that other people have faced indictment over.
As more and more Republicans are concluding that there’s no alternative to a second special counsel to investigate bias and abuses of power by the FBI and Justice Department, more attention is being paid to the role played by Deputy Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein, and it’s about time, because he's the one who gave us Robert Mueller.
