  1. Politico will say whatever it takes to get placements in government buildings.
  2. But this conversation didn't happen on a plane so no problem.
  3. P.S. it looks like posting tweets is a lot more stable if you use twitter's embed code in a source mode post rather than copy->pasting a link and letting the boards (lol) take care of it.
  4. Well, it's an impeachable offense.
  5. States rights for bigots, federal crackdown on casual pot users.
  6. It's a thing that actually happened but whose ultimate success may never be quantifiable. The results, however, do seem to match with what a successful campaign would look like and the explicit goals of this particular one.
  7. As I recall it's owned by secretive shell companies that tie back to Russia and have been involved with campaigns whose results line up with known Russian digital warfare agendas. Also Steve Bannon sits on their board.
  8. https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/how-our-likes-helped-trump-win The way Big Data is being used here sounds like the development of atomic weaponry. This is some seriously scary shit.
  9. I am really very glad you asked but this is a subject that by far needs its own thread. It'll take me a while since I'm on mobile but I'm going to post the article from Vice on "The Data That Turned The World Upside Down" if you want a preview.
  10. oh and before I forget -- This post is super fucking lulzy considering how Louise Mensch is a British CONSERVATIVE former MP and journalist who loves Ted Cruz and Chris Christie (barf); revealing you once again as a kneejerk partisan fuckwit ignoramus.
  11. I'm not embarrassed for anything I post about because unlike you I actually read the articles before I post them.
  12. I'm not sure I buy it but it seems credulous on its own. Like I said, worth considering. She also has another article that I haven't read yet but is also very interesting sounding. Not to mention she only mentioned Cambridge Analytics which is itself a deeply involved part of the whole Russian "hack" of the election.
