#NEW: Whenever Google is caught doing something dubious, its response is always the same: Blame someone else.

We've pulled together a sampling of Google's blame-shifting and created a parody "Google Doodle." Play the "Google Blame Game" here:… 1/4
When journalists or regulators have raised questions about Google's conduct, Google has cast blame at different times to Microsoft, Apple, Rupert Murdoch, Viacom, Oracle, Fox, AT&T, MPAA, NBC Universal, publishers, competitors... 2/4

#Breaking Turkey announces the start of its operation in the territory currently currently by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces

In a phone call, Russian president Putin urges Turkish president Erdogan to “assess the situation carefully” so that the Turkish operation does not hurt “peace efforts” in Syria (the Astana process).
The Turkish invasion, dubbed “Spring of Peace”, will likely be in stages over several months.

Probably a play on the word for one of the two towns, with large Arab population, that the operation might start with — Ras al-Ayn (Serê Kaniyê).

#NEW: @aurabogado reports that DHS is farming out children of migrants.
One of those places is Bethany Services in Pennsylvania, about which I have reported.

The US is quietly opening shelters for babies and young kids. One has 12 children and no mothers…
Bethany Services is linked to Betsy DeVos and has been involved in abuses of kids, and has disturbing anti-LGBTQ policies. This is not a good agency for any children to be housed by, but has numerous sites nationally.

#REDFLAG: After a setback in the Supreme Court, Trump asks his lawyers if he can DELAY THE CENSUS

The census is constitutionally-mandated to begin in April 2020, under Article I, Section 2.

Trump is asking if he can IGNORE the Constitution b/c he doesn't like a SCOTUS decision.
#RELATED: The Supreme Court ruled against the Trump Administration's proposal to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census...for now.

It would've led to a severe undercount, which would've rigged elections and resources in favor of white Republicans.
#HUGEWIN: The Trump Administration will begin printing the 2020 Census WITHOUT the citizenship question.

After missing their deadline, some feared Trump may actually try to defy the Constitution and the law.

This is an incredible victory for democracy!…

#REDFLAG: Hear me out. It's important.

We're FUNDAMENTALLY talking about Barr and Mueller in the wrong way.

According to the Special Counsel rules, in basic terms, the Attorney General MUST notify Congress if he ever disagreed, overruled, or blocked the Special Counsel.

#IMO: Barr violated DOJ rules by failing to disclose he OVERRULED Mueller.

In his first letter, Barr told Congress "there were no such instances" where he disagreed, overruled, or blocked Mueller.

But, his decision to exonerate Trump, when Mueller would not, is just that. [2/2]
#RELATED: While the Special Counsel rules mandate that Barr notifies Congress if he interferes w/ the investigation...

...those rules DON'T apply for the 14 investigations Mueller handed-off.

They could be impeded and Barr wouldn't have to tell anyone.

Twitter released the tweets of another 418 russian accounts on January 31.
I'm going to use this thread to take a look at the information they gave us about these accounts.
And talk about other bots and trolls you can find using this data.…
Of the 418 accounts 1 was a double, @CovfefeNationUS it was already included in the last batch of accounts.
One was not actually suspended until I reminded them.
2 of them had active backup accounts at the time of publication of the data.
around 320 of the accounts I had tweeted about a lot. So i'm not going to bother going back over them.
I found them right after NBC put out the 1st batch of tweets from the russian trolls.
They were bots, and most of the data about what they did is unavailable.

#NEW: Rick Gates told Mueller that he and Manafort shared Trump Campaign Polling Data in 2016 w/ Konstantin Kilimnik, who has ties to Russian Intelligence.

In new unsealed court docs, it was revealed that Gates was at least one source for the revelation.…
#BREAKING: In new court filing, it was revealed that Konstantin Kilimnik...WAS IN DC FOR THE INAUGURATION.

The Manafort and Gates associate, with ties to Russian Intelligence, met with Manafort about the "Russia-Ukraine peace plan."

#REDFLAG: In court transcripts, Andrew Weissman, senior Mueller prosecutor, suggested Konstantin Kilimnik's relationship w/ Manafort & Gates...TIES DIRECTLY TO #CONSPIRACY/COLLUSION.

“This goes...very much to the heart of what the [SCO] is investigating.”

He told Cohen to give FALSE testimony about building a Trump Tower Moscow, aka the Moscow Project.

There's a reason Mueller had Cohen plead guilty to THIS crime.

It's #WitnessTampering + #Obstruction.…
#WATCH: Barr said a President suborning perjury would be #Obstruction.

Q: "A president persuading a person to commit perjury would be obstruction. Is that right?"

Barr: "Yes."

Q: "...a president...convincing a witness to change testimony would be obstruction...?"

Barr: "Yes."
#REDFLAG: Mueller's Office takes the rare step of PUSHING BACK on Buzzfeed News' reporting.

They seem to dispute the "description" and "characterization" of corroborating documents and testimony in the article.

But not necessarily the central premise...

#FLAG: I'm convinced, Rick Gates is a critical witness to #Collusion/Conspiracy.

He was involved in handing over Trump campaign polling data to Konstantin Kilimnik, along w/ Manafort.

But late in the campaign when data would be most critical, Manafort wasn't around.

Gates was.
#FLAG: Not to mention, Gates worked on the Inauguration.

We know foreign money — specifically from a pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarch — made its way into the huge inaugural fund...that was admitted to in a guilty plea by Sam Patten.

I bet Gates knows more.
#MORE: Here's more on Gates also working with Manafort to share Trump Campaign polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, who has ties to Russian Intelligence.

This received remarkably less press than it should usual when it comes to Gates coverage.

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.
