Because, Fuck your tired, poor, huddles masses yearning to breathe free…
Page 284 of the Mueller report reads: “In the afternoon of May 10, 2017, deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders spoke to the President about his decision to fire Comey and then spoke to reporters in a televised press conference…Sanders said, ‘Look, we’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things’…Sanders told this Office that her reference to hearing from ‘countless members of the FBI’ was a ‘slip of the tongue.’ She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made ‘in the heat of the moment’ that was not founded on anything.”
…In other words, the chief spokesperson for the president of the United States admitted to Mueller’s team that she had invented interactions with members of the FBI to validate her boss’s decision to terminate James Comey. In the process, she knowingly advanced a narrative designed to undermine the credibility of the person who had been running the nation’s premier law enforcement investigative organization.
…Sanders isn’t the White House press secretary as much as she is America’s main minister of propaganda. Make no mistake about it, Sanders isn’t a “complicit” bystander to the “porn star presidency,”she is a partner in it.
The woman lies like a rug. Not sure why this is news to anyone.
Nusrat Jahan Rafi told her family she was lured to the roof of her rural school in the town of Feni on April 6 and asked to withdraw the charges by five people clad in burqas.
When she refused, she said her hands were tied and she was doused in kerosene and set alight. Rafi told the story to her brother in an ambulance on the way to the hospital and he recorded her testimony on his mobile phone.
“The teacher touched me, I will fight this crime till my last breath,” Rafi said in the video, according to BBC News. She also identified some of her attackers as students at the school.
Rafi died four days later in a Dhaka hospital with burns covering 80 percent of her body.
… A video taken on March 27 while Rafi reported the assault shows the local police chief registering her complaint but telling her that the incident was “not a big deal.”
The chief was later removed from the police station for negligence in dealing with the case.
…At least 17 people, including students, have been arrested in connection with the case, said Banaj Kumar Majumder, the head of the Police Bureau of Investigation.
Two sources speaking with The Post said the FTC was considering whether to “seek new, heightened oversight” of Zuckerberg’s leadership. The Post previously reported that the FTC might be seeking a multibillion-dollar fine for the social network as well.
…The investigation is looking into whether Facebook violated the terms of a 2011 settlement with the FTC, specifically something called the “consent decree,” which essentially made Facebook responsible for being transparent with users about how their data was being used on the platform — with future violations punishable by huge fines.
…The report comes in the wake of recent revelations discovered by Business Insider that Facebook collected the email contact lists of 1.5 million new users without their knowledge or permission.
…Facebook could be violating a variety of regulations, including the FTC consent decree; the European Union privacy law known as GDPR; and perhaps even the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a US criminal statute involving computer fraud and abuse.
“A now-discontinued email-verification system that Facebook used with new users caused the tech giant to inadvertently collect email contact information from 1.5 million new users.”
Inadvertent, my ass. Programs are written by humans, not by accident.
Facebook admitted Thursday night in an updated post from March that the company collected millions of additional users’ Instagram passwords.
…The update was connected to a March 21 blog post that disclosed how hundreds of millions of Facebook users’ passwords had been stored unencrypted on the firm’s servers.
…“Since this post was published, we discovered additional logs of Instagram passwords being stored in a readable format,”
…Zuckerberg and other executives used privacy data as leverage over competitors, media reports show. In one case, Facebook allegedly gave Amazon premium access to data for its new smartphone, but phased out access for a messaging application that threatened a similar app Facebook managed.
