      Unfortunately they will largely ignore us to pursue the “angry white GOP voter”. I hope there will be more and more minority women elected until we are in the majority in the House and at least 1/3rd in the Senate.

    Public evidence suggests Mueller able to bring conspiracy charge

    Chuck Rosenberg, former U.S. attorney, and Jeremy Bash, former CIA chief of staff, talk with Nicolle Wallace about the legal meaning of conspiracy and why they think, based on the evidence made public so far, that Robert Mueller has enough to charge someone with conspiracy.

    Facebook still being used to stoke racial animus, split Americans

    Kara Swisher, executive editor of Recode, talks with Nicolle Wallace about Facebook’s announcement that it has found more “bad actors” using its platform to try to divide Americans against each other, and the problems Facebook is having policing its own platform for this kind of material.

      It does not take much to stoke racism in America….Racism is as American as apple pie!!….White American does not want to admit it….If we came to terms with our racist past, our racist present…perhaps we would have a better chance of NOT having a racist future

    In Mexico City, Ballerinas Dance in Traffic—and It’s Absolutely Captivating
    A burst of brightness in a city notorious for traffic.
    DAVID BEARDAUG. 1, 2018 9:00 AM

    Is this a flash mob? A comedy troupe? Some strange protest along a busy intersection in Mexico City?

    Not quite. These seven ballet dancers from the Ardentía dance company are performing selections from “The Nutcracker” and “Swan Lake” and even grooving to Michael Jackson in a downtown crosswalk in the Mexican capital.

    Granted, the performances only last 58 seconds—the time it takes for a traffic light to change from red to green—but they’re making a big impact. Over the past couple of weeks, the Ardentía company has performed these mini-shows to brighten the lives of weary commuters, part of an initiative called “the theatricality of public space,” reports the Associated Press. The performances have drawn large crowds and captivated photographers across the city.

    There is no liberal case for Brett Kavanaugh
    AUG 01, 2018 | 4:15 AM

    In the past few weeks, many conservative voices have spoken in support of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. But so have some liberal lawyers, including some of our colleagues at Yale Law School. Why would left-leaning attorneys lend their authority to a judge who has an unmistakable record of hostility to core liberal causes, from abortion rights to voting rights, from environmental regulations to restraints on presidential power?

    In celebrating Kavanaugh, liberals may be acting out nostalgia for a long-gone bipartisan appointment process. They may be failing to admit the importance of values to judging, or they may be misreading Kavanaugh’s record. Perhaps they think he is the best nominee they can hope for, or that his personal virtue recommends his confirmation. Then again, maybe they are simply seeking influence. None of these are creditable reasons: There is no liberal case for Kavanaugh.

    This Is So Much Bigger Than Paul Manafort
    With Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman on trial, America is reckoning with its very serious kleptocracy problem.

    JUL 31, 2018

    On the eve of the Paul Manafort trial, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin casually announced that the Trump administration was considering a fresh $100 billion tax cut for the wealthy. The two events—the trial and the tax cut—should be considered plot points in the very same narrative. Manafort had grown very rich by looting public monies, and Mnuchin was proposing an arguably legal version of the same.

    Unlike past Trump tax cuts, this proposed cut would be implemented by executive fiat, without a congressional vote—a highly unusual and highly undemocratic act of plunder that would redirect money from the state to further enrich the American elite, not to mention Mnuchin himself.

    The trial of Paul Manafort is not merely an episode in a larger scandal that will unfold over many chapters. It is a warning not to be ignored. It’s an occasion for the United States to awaken from its collective slumber about the creeping dangers of kleptocracy.

    So much about the American view of itself resists accepting a disturbing reality. Conventional wisdom long held that America’s free market would never tolerate the sort of clientelism, nepotism, and outright theft that prevailed in places like Brazil and Italy. Americans thought that globalization would export the hygienic habits of this nation’s financial system and its values of good government to the rest of the world. But over the past three decades, the opposite transpired: America has become the sanctuary of choice for laundered money, a bastion of shell companies and anonymously purchased real estate. American elites have learned to plant money offshore with acumen that comes close to matching their crooked counterparts abroad.

    Manafort is one of the architects of this new world order.

    So glad that Republicans in Congress see that we need extra $ for cyber threats against our country and are willing to appropriate money…oh, wait…


    On Aug. 1, 2018, the United States District Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Washington unsealed indictments and announced the arrests of three individuals within the leadership ranks of a criminal organization that aligns with activity we have tracked since 2015 as FIN7. These malicious actors are members of one of the most prolific financial threat groups of this decade, having carefully crafted attacks targeted at more than 100 organizations. FIN7 is referred to by many vendors as “Carbanak Group,” although we do not equate all usage of the CARBANAK backdoor with FIN7. This blog explores the range of FIN7’s criminal ventures, the technical innovation and social engineering ingenuity that powered their success, a glimpse into their recent campaigns, their apparent use of a security company as a front for criminal operations, and what their success means for the threat landscape moving forward. With this release, FireEye is also providing technical context, historical indicators, and techniques that organizations can use to hunt for FIN7 behavior enterprise-wide.

    FIN7 Does the Crime…
    The threat group is characterized by their persistent targeting and large-scale theft of payment card data from victim systems, which it has monetized at least a portion of through a prominent card shop. But FIN7’s financial operations were not limited to card data theft. In some instances, when they encountered and could not obtain payment card data from point of sale (POS) systems secured with end-to-end encryption (E2EE) or point-to-point encryption (P2PE), FIN7 pivoted to target finance departments within their victim organizations.

    Furthermore, in April 2017, FireEye reported that FIN7 sent spear phishing emails to personnel involved with United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings at multiple organizations, providing further insight into FIN7’s targeting. These targeted individuals would likely have access to material non-public information that FIN7 actors could use to gain a competitive advantage in stock trading.

    Diversification of their monetization tactics has allowed the group to impact a wide range of industries beyond those solely associated with payment card industry. During campaigns that FireEye associates with FIN7, victims within the following sectors have been targeted within the United States and Europe:
