Far-Right Platform #Gab Has Been Hacked—Including Private Data

The transparency group #DDoSecrets says it will make the 70 GB of passwords, private posts, and more available to researchers, journalists, and social scientists

Those #Gab patrons, whose numbers have swelled after Parler went offline, include large numbers of #Qanon conspiracy theorists, white nationalists, and promoters of former president Donald Trump's election-stealing conspiracies that resulted in the January 6 riot

#EmmaBest wrote in a text message interview with WIRED.

“It's another gold mine of research for people looking at militias, neo-Nazis, the far right, #QAnon, and everything surrounding January 6."

Stunning new allegations further connect #Trump to Russian mobsters and oligarchs | New Lawsuit #FelixSater

Stolen money amounting to $440 million was invested in America and run through trust funds maintained by Moses & Singer.

The documents alleging #FelixSater's illicit conduct are listed in the lawsuit brought by the city of Almaty, the capital of #Kazakhstan, and the looted #BTABank in that city.

Some of the $440 million was intended to finance a #TrumpTowerMoscow, court papers show.

The Almaty plaintiffs describe a farflung scheme to hide much of the stolen money in America using Sater, a violent felon and stock swindler, and #RobertWolf, a Moses & Singer partner

Wolf asked DCReport to delay the publication of this article so that he could prepare responses

American taxpayers are funding the defence for US Capitol rioters

60 of the 274 charged rioters have been granted taxpayer-funded representation appointed to them either through the federal public defender's office or private counsel

The Criminal Justice Act, which was passed in 1964 by Congress, ensures that anyone charged with federal crimes will have access to legal representation, which falls in step with the 6th Amendment to the US Constitution.
But it then places the burden on taxpayers to foot the bill for these federal defendants' representation, which could cost in the millions.

Save Democracy, Senate Democrats Must Kill The Filibuster

Political unity between these parties is not possible given the starkly, indeed diametrically, opposed positions the parties have taken with respect to our system of democracy itself


#Republicans oppose democracy

They have used every means possible to undermine democracy in order to secure for themselves the power of the U.S. government.

They continue, for example, to pursue their historically aggressive agenda of gerrymandering and voter suppression.

Thus far, since last November’s election, GOP lawmakers in 28 states have advanced over 100 bills aimed at restricting access to voting.

They are not lovers of democracy.

They are still lying about the election (#StopTheSteal)

They remain racist, homophobic, etc...

Center-right Republicans fear party headed for disaster

Their worry is that the party is branding itself as the party of insurrectionists and conspiracy theorists. This spells catastrophe for the GOP’s ability to appeal beyond a hardcore base

#MOG thehill.com/homenews/admin…
Tensions within the party are at boiling point.

A spokeswoman for Rep. #AdamKinzinger (R-Ill.), one of the 10 GOP House members to vote for Trump’s impeachment this month, sent The Hill an email statement blasting #QAnon’s Greene.

“Congressman Kinzinger has said from day one that QAnon has no place in Congress. And while he respects the voice of the people and their right to elect a #MarjorieGreene, he does not agree with the decision to give her a committee seat”

#Louisiana Cemetery Refuses To Bury Black Deputy Because Of 'WHITES-ONLT’ POLICY

The widow of #DarrellSemien, who died last Sunday, was stunned to learn that #OaklinSpringsCemetery in Allen Parish had such a policy that dated back to a 1950s

“Wow what a slap in the face,” Karla Semien wrote

Nearly a quarter of the residents in Allen Parish are Black

When she and her children went to the cemetery to pick out a plot, the saleswoman “just looked us cold in the face, and straight-up said, ‘I can’t sell you a plot,’”
The saleswoman also reportedly said that the graveyard was not for people of color

“It’s a white human being-only cemetery”

H. Creig Vizena, the board president said that he was stunned to learn Semien was denied burial.

He fired his 81-year-old aunt, the salesperson...
