When Protests Are Powerful, the Powerful Punish Protest

It is activism is what and will save America. We must resist or we will end up in chains:

One has to wonder why those in power are so worried about protest. Giant mega-corporations have all the money and influence. Corporate allies and henchmen dominate our legislatures and government offices. It would seem they have all the power. So why punish protest — why not just ignore it?

Because protest works. Even in the face of massive wealth and political influence, protest has the ability to change the conversation, to educate the public, change facts on the ground, and mobilize opposition.

Global cyber attack fuels concern about U.S. vulnerability disclosures

Just like before 9-11, the U.S. government is useless in defending the American people:

A global cyber attack on Friday renewed concerns about whether the U.S. National Security Agency and other countries’ intelligence services too often hoard software vulnerabilities for offensive purposes, rather than quickly alerting technology companies to such flaws.

Hacking tools believed to belong to the NSA that were leaked online last month appear to be the root cause of a major cyber attack unfurling throughout Europe and beyond, security researchers said, stoking fears that the spy agency’s powerful cyber weapons had been stolen and repurposed by hackers with nefarious goals.

Some cyber security experts and privacy advocates said the massive attack reflected a flawed approach by the United States to dedicate more cyber resources to offence rather than defence, a practice they argued makes the internet less secure.

Pope Francis says he will stand up to Donald Trump on immigration and climate change

At least someone is willing to take him on. The Democrats are obviously too weak and corrupt to do it:

Pope Francis has said he will be “sincere” with Donald Trump over their sharp differences on subjects such as immigration and climate change.

The Pontiff, who is due to hold his first meeting with the US President at the Vatican later this month, said he would keep an open mind and not pass judgement on Mr Trump until first listening to his views.

DNC Labor Lawsuit: How Can Democrats #Fightfor15 When They Pay Less than $10?

The DNC fraud lawsuit isn’t the only class action filed against the party. On November 9, 2016, DNC campaign groundgame worker Bethany Katz filed suit in Federal District Court in Philadelphia alleging that the DNC had failed to pay overtime to her and other non-exempt employees.

Labor law attorneys Justin Swidler and Richard Swartz filed the suit on behalf of Katz and 6 other plaintiffs from states ranging from Arizona to Missouri. The DNC and each state party organization is named in the suit which is filed under provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938.
