I obtained surveillance footage of the self-driving Tesla that abruptly stopped on the Bay Bridge, resulting in an eight-vehicle crash that injured 9 people including a 2 yr old child just hours after Musk announced the self-driving feature.

Full story:…
Huge thanks to my attorney @bethbourdon for helping me obtain this footage.

Help her continue to liberate government records in the public interest by subscribing:

Look how confident private industry was that the Biden admin would prevent a rail strike. Per coal company investor call: “We’re still believing that the federal government will be involved enough to prevent…So we’re placing a low probability on it.”… Image
If you have any tips about the rail strike, text me securely via signal at 202-510-1268
Of rail strike possibility, coal company CEO reassured investors that workers’ demands were “mostly just about money and not other working conditions or working standards that could get more emotional”.

At first the CIA was so confident of a Ukrainian defeat they told Biden the best they could hope for was an insurgency they could covertly arm. Whoops!

My latest with @JamesRisen1:…
US involvement in Ukraine is taking place under a highly classified covert action finding by President Obama. Intelligence officials expressed frustration that there hasn't been a new finding, which would notify Congress…

CEO of $12 billion company told investors he's "praying for inflation," an unusually candid admission of a dirty secret in the business world: corporations use inflation as a pretext to jack up prices.…
“it’s kind of like a rain dance, I pray for inflation every day I come to work because…our top line is really driven by inflation," CEO William Meaney told investors. "Every point of inflation expands our margins.”…

Federal Reserve's own economist warns of a "severe recession" if the Fed keeps hiking interest rates.

Fed Chair Powell, a Republican who thinks wages are too high, insists he won’t cause a deep recession but that “pain” is necessary to fight inflation.…
Fed Chair Powell has said that his goal is “to get wages down and then get inflation down.”…
Anyway if you’re a Wall Street person who’s privy to internal research showing that the Fed is going to cause a recession- I know such research exists - text me at 202-510-1268 (use Signal). The time to stop a crisis in which millions lose their jobs is now.

Nancy Pelosi’s statement opposing a student debt forgiveness order followed a lobbying campaign by a billionaire megadonor who’s served as her campaign treasurer since 2012 — and who says he only just learned student debt even exists a few years ago.…
The donor, Steven Swig, is heir to the oldest real estate dynasty in San Fransisco—where Pelosi’s district is.

He’s contributed millions to the Democratic Party and personally met with Pelosi to discuss student debt cancellation.…
This memo, produced by the Pelosi megadonor and quietly circulated among Congress, says a student debt forgiveness exec order would be illegal. The memo was not provided to the general public.

This is how the sausage is made. Image
