The Lincoln Project Project - SOME MORE NEWS

quote [ Hi. Here is a video for your parents about their favorite new Trump trolls, The Lincoln Project. ]

One of these days I want to sit down and map out where all the Bush era neocons ended up. Because there's quite a bit of them working behind the scenes in "liberal" media, if I recall correctly.

Trump boasts of pushing low-income housing out of suburbs

quote [ President Donald Trump is pining for support in the suburbs, and pushing out low-income housing is playing a part in his bid to get it.

In a set of tweets and in remarks in Texas on Wednesday, Trump bragged about his administration?s rescinding an Obama-era fair housing rule that was meant to combat housing discrimination. He characterized low-income housing as a detriment to the suburbs and claimed that Democrats were out to uproot and destroy suburbia ? a cultural sphere that he equated to the American dream. ]

Incredibly racist and classist.

I live in Georgia, so nothing I found surprised me :-/ but an interesting tool none the less.

Covid-19 has revealed a pre-existing pandemic of poverty that benefits the rich

quote [ Even high-income countries with ample resources have failed to seriously reduce poverty rates.
The coronavirus has merely lifted the lid off the pre-existing pandemic of poverty. ]

Another one on poverty ? summarizing decades of overly optimistic views. Interestingly, this Guardian section is supported by the Gates foundation.

Wealth, shown to scale

Remember when Bill Gates was hated for stifling innovation in computing by using unfair and immoral business tactics to attack and undermine Microsoft's competition? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

On Segregated Suburbs, Trump Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

quote [ Targeting HUD?s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, the president said on Twitter that enforcing housing desegregation would have a ?devastating impact.?( ]

I can't tell if this continued all in on racism is a good polling strategy or not. I guess if your plan is to cancel elections then...

Feds to review investigations into two Black men found hanging in California

quote [ Fuller, 24, was found dead near Palmdale City Hall on Wednesday afternoon by a passerby, a sheriff's official has said, and his death was initially ruled an apparent suicide.

Harsch, 38, was found hanging from a tree near a homeless encampment late last month in Victorville, about 53 miles east of Palmdale, officials have said. ]

Victorville is a terrible place I have no interest in ever being in. Palmdale is unknown to me, however it would seem that it is also really bad. How was this just brushed over?

Fuck Off Google!

quote [ Fuck off Google!
Don't let Google & co. take over our lives and spaces!
Google steals and exploits our data for profit and turned this behaviour into a norm. It also colonizes our physical spaces. Google canceled its plan for a ?Google Campus? in Kreuzberg, Berlin under pressure by the neighborhood; yet it continues its expansion worldwide.
As a decentralized network of people, we want to keep our lives and spaces free from this law- and tax-evading company and its peers, and oppose the dystopian future they offer. ]

Fuck Off Google!

While we're all busy smashing the police state, we should begin on the tech state as well. Tech is definitely the 5th estate
