"Israel bombs Damascus suburb". I assume they missed the Hezbollah or Iranian commander they were targeting, or we would have heard about it.

"Bloomberg Reports Fake News: Story Claims FireEye Said Russia ‘Weaponized Social Media’ During Elections". "Intel Officials Believe Russia Spreads Fake News":
"The congressional intelligence authorization act for this year, which could be passed through congress as early as next week, mandates the revival of a Cold War-era panel known as the “Active Measures Working Group,” which would be a White House-appointed panel specifically tasked with unmasking and handling Russian influence efforts. That provision of the bill, initially proposed by Sen. Tom Cotton, has wide support from Democratic and Republican lawmakers on the Hill, but was met with some resistance from the Obama administration."
Tweet (Theodore Toilet):
"Mother Jones died 86 years ago today. A quick comparison.""Public Editor: The Globe will avoid racist term alt-right". It is apparently better to call them all Nazis, even though the vast majority of them aren't.
Mitt tweets from March:
"Here's what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. (1/2)"and:
"He's playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat. (2/2)"Tweet (Isaac Saul):
"Trump supporters literally chanted "Goldman Sachs" at @tedcruz to taunt his wife. Now 3 top Goldman employees will be in Trump's cabinet.""How the Democrats could win again, if they wanted" (Frank). Doesn't anybody think it curious that people who want to win keep making the same obvious losing mistakes over and over? I'd be looking at 'donor' motivations. Of course, it is the height of bigotry to assume that one issue guys who give billions of dollars would expect anything in return.

"Kosovo Spent IMF Funds on Pensions for Veterans Now Fighting for Daesh".
"Snoopers’ Charter: Only amendment politicians have submitted to controversial bill is to stop MPs being spied on". Good for thee but not for we.
"Key Congressional Staffers Who Helped Rein In Surveillance Overreach In The 1970s Ask Obama To Pardon Snowden". The Church Committee is unimaginable today.
"Ontario activists push back against new anti-BDS measure". The Ontario Liberals are in big trouble unless they get rid of Wynne, and fast. The total reliance on identity politics to cover the rot underneath reminds me of Clinton. Too much of this kind of sleazy corruption surrounds her, and recent world events are proving that people actually notice this crap. I'd be looking at 'donor' motivations.
"Darwin’s Mistake". There is a genre now of funny reviews of the hapless Friedman. How does he have a job? I'd be looking at 'donor' motivations.
"New Statesman censors Palestine articles". I'd be looking at 'donor' motivations.
