Ex-CIA Russia expert sounds the alarm on Paul Manafort’s promises to Putin’s favorite oligarch — March 30, 2018

Ex-CIA Russia expert sounds the alarm on Paul Manafort’s promises to Putin’s favorite oligarch

Steve Hall, who once served as the CIA’s chief of Russia operations warned that one of the things the media isn’t talking about enough is that former campaign manager Paul Manafort once offered to brief Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska on President Donald Trump’s campaign. “When Paul Manafort was working for the then-President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, it’s incomprehensible to me that Yanukovych, who was close to Putin and Moscow, and would have at least not…

Voting Machine Vendor Changes Story, Admits They Put Remote-Access Software on Machines for Years —

Voting Machine Vendor Changes Story, Admits They Put Remote-Access Software on Machines for Years

Voting Machine Vendor Changes Story, Admits They Put Remote-Access Software on Machines for Years. The country’s leading manufacturer of voting machines has switched gears and admitted that the company installed remote-access software on election-management systems sold over the course of a six-year period. This comes as a reversal of a previous public statement from the vendor in question.The admission comes by way of an April letter sent to Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) by Election System and Software (ES&S) and recently obtained by Motherboard. The letter notes:[ES&S] provided pcAnywhere remote connection software…to a small number of customers between 2000 and 2006…According to Motherboard, this admission is a direct contradiction of previous statements made by ES&S in February of this year. In a New York Times article, the company previously claimed, by way of an unattributed statement, “None of the employees…including long-tenured employees, has any knowledge that our voting systems have ever been sold with remote-access software.”Per the April Wyden letter, ES&S says that they stopped installing the remote-access pcAnywhere software in December of 2007. This change in course was apparently prompted in response to a slate of new regulations and standards adopted by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).The EAC is a little-known government entity tasked with myriad voting-and-election-related duties, including the creation of a national standard for voting systems in the United States. This agency is fairly newborn, having been spun into existence after the passage of the Help America Vote Act in 2002.According to Motherboard, “Software like pcAnywhere is used by system administrators to access and control systems from a remote location to conduct maintenance or upgrade or alter software. But election-management systems and voting machines are supposed to be air-gapped for security reasons—that is, disconnected from the internet and from any other systems that are connected to the internet.”That apparently hasn’t been the case, however, as a 2007 ES&S contract notes, “ES&S technicians can use PCAnywhere to view a client computer, assess the exact situation that caused a software issue and to view data files.”In response to the admissions contained in the April letter, Wyden said, “[This] is the worst decision for security short of leaving ballot boxes on a Moscow street corner.”By Colin Kalmbacher.

Colbert hilariously mocks Trump’s switcheroo: ‘And on that bus I said respect her by the p*ssy’ — July 19, 2018

Colbert hilariously mocks Trump’s switcheroo: ‘And on that bus I said respect her by the p*ssy’

According to Stephen Colbert, after President Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, “some people are beginning to think Trump might not be a good president.” Reading headlines, Colbert explained that even Trump officials are embarrassed by the president. “Now they’re embarrassed?!” the “Late Show” host exclaimed. “Look, I was with him with the Nazis and imprisoning children but siding with the Ruskies? They killed Apollo Creed.” The New York Times reported…

Trayvon Martin, the Legacy of Lynching, and the Role of White Women — July 14, 2018

Trayvon Martin, the Legacy of Lynching, and the Role of White Women

formations. // living at the intersections of self, social, spirit.

*Five years ago today, George Zimmerman was exonerated for the killing of Trayvon Martin. Three years ago today, Sandra Bland was found dead in a Waller County Texas jail cell. Just this week the Department of Justice announced a re-opening of its investigation into the lynching of Emmett Till.  It is in this context we share this piece. Melanie S. Morrison reflects on legacies of lynching and the particular roles white women and cultures surrounding white womanhood have played in the killing of Black people and the failure of any system to hold anyone responsible. Morrison reflects as she simultaneously steeps herself  in the courageous legacy of Lillian E. Smith, as an exceptionally rare white southern woman who dared challenge white supremacy and who knew all too well the role white women and white “liberals” play in sustaining it. We have much history to reckon with as we seek to do our…
