    Capitol assault a more sinister attack than first appeared

    From the AP: The more we learn about the attack, the more we realize how much more this was than an angry crowd. It looks like an organized bunch used the sheer numbers and anger of the crowd to their advantage to breach the Capitol's defenses. With President Trump promising to follow them, did...

    ‘They are running away’: Clyburn blasts DeVos, Chao for resigning without invoking 25th Amendment

    From Politico Why are all these official resigning days before their time is up? Apparently Pence doesn't have the stomach for invoking the 25th (not sure I blame him TBH), so I'd say the rats are leaving the sinking ship. They don't want to be associated with Trump anymore and they certainly...

    After inciting riot, Trump now promises peaceful transfer of power

    From CNBC So basically, he continued to agitate his supporters with falsehoods while claiming to be working with (or at least not stopping) the transition.

    Pro-Trump protesters storm US Capitol as lawmakers gather to count electoral votes

    From CNN This is deeply disturbing. All of the rhetoric and lies that Trump and his allies have been pushing for months is finally coming home to roost. Will we see any sort of contrition or accountability for this threat to our democracy?

    What's worse for you Trump supporters: A fair election where Trump lost or defeating a Democratic Conspiracy where Trump wins?

    I know it's kind of a lose/lose situation for Trump supporters, so that's why I phrased it as "worse". This is intended for Trump supporters to answer for themselves, not for others to try and answer for them. Although I suppose I can't keep others from responding.

    Ronald Reagan's Long-Hidden Racist Conversation with Richard Nixon

    For a host of reasons, this tape wasn't released until about two weeks ago, and the results were published on the Atlantic site today. The article goes on to talk about Reagan's support of South Africa during Apartheid. Nixon for his part couldn't seem to shake Reagan's phone call from his...

    The US population is getting older, and increasingly more manipulated

    As our population ages, the effects of technology and the pace of change in technology continues to grow. The result? We are becoming a nation of suckers, getting conned online by various predators. It's generally accepted that the rate of technological change grows exponentially. Which means...

    Caught in a political echo chamber? Listening to the opposition can make partisanship even worse

    Basically, they paid people on twitter a small sum to follow a bot that spouted political views that were opposed to their own. They asked them the same 10 questions about their political beliefs before and after the study to see if anything shifted. Things got "worse". Per the Los Angeles...

    How Trump Consultants Exploited the Facebook Data of Millions

    One of the key advantages of the Trump campaign was apparently unethical and possibly even illegal. Some of the players involved: Alexander Nix = CEO of Cambridge Analytica Mr Mercer = conservative investor in C.A. Steve Bannon = angel of death Hoo boy. This is an important issue, not only...

    Trump voters: is America great again, yet?

    A quarter of Trump's term has gone by so far, but this is not specifically about Trump as a President, but about America - why it wasn't great and why it is/isn't now. Please be specific.

    White nationalist Richard Spencer leads torch-bearing protesters defending Lee statue

    White nationalist Richard Spencer leads torch-bearing protesters defending Lee statue First off the imagery of these people wielding torches is creepy as hell and depending upon how vulnerable people feel, it could be intimidating. Russia is our friend? That's a weird one to me. I had never...
