in the US being killed by police is the sixth leading cause of death for black men,

that is a 1 in 1000 chance, 1 in 2000 for men overall and 1 in 33,000 for women. Think about that, would you fly in an airplane if your odds of dying was 1 in 33,000? (its 1 in 5 million by the way)

have we entered the police state phase of capitalism with privatized prisons and militarized police forces or have we just become a cruel, uncaring society where life is cheap?


A Nieson TV rep came a knockin tonight

said I was selected as the only person in my area to be a part of their TV ratings, for money, gifts. I think the hardwired folks get like $20 a month. I had to turn them down as I explained the only tv show I watch, other than binge watching HBO series, is the one hour Rachel Maddow show . TBH, I wouldn't even have cable if it wasn't a package deal that I'm soon to tire of.

This was one of the Articles of impeachment used to impeach Andrew Johnson, sound familiar?

ARTICLE 10.That said Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, unmindful of the high duties of his high office and the dignity and proprieties thereof, and of the harmony and courtesies which ought to exist and be maintained between the executive and legislative branches of the Government of the United States, designing and intending to set aside the rightful authorities and powers of Congress, did attempt to bring into disgrace, ridicule, hatred, contempt and reproach, the Congress of the United States, and the several branches thereof, to impair and destroy the regard and respect of all the good people of the United States for the Congress and the legislative power thereof, which all officers of the government ought inviolably to preserve and maintain, and to excite the odium and resentment of all good people of the United States against Congress and the laws by it duly and constitutionally enacted; and in pursuance of his said design and intent, openly and publicly and before divers assemblages of citizens of the United States, convened in divers parts thereof, to meet and receive said Andrew Johnson as the Chief Magistrate of the United States, did, on the eighteenth day of August, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-six, and on divers other days and times, as well before as afterwards, make and declare, with a loud voice, certain intemperate, inflammatory and scandalous harangues, and therein utter loud threats and bitter menaces, as well against Congress as the laws of the United States duly enacted thereby, amid the cries, jeers and laughter of the multitudes then assembled in hearing, which are set forth in the several specifications hereinafter written, in substance and effect, that it to say:

US Has Intel That Osama bin Laden's Son Hamza Is Dead, Officials Say

Source: NBC NY

The U.S. has obtained intelligence that the son and potential successor of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Hamza bin Laden, is dead, three U.S. officials told NBC News.

The officials would not provide details of where or when Hamza bin Laden died, or if the U.S. played a role in his death. It is unclear if the U.S. has confirmed his death. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hamza bin Laden's last known public statement was released by al Qaeda's media arm in 2018. He threatened Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt.

Hamza bin Laden is believed to have been born around 1989. His father moved to Afghanistan in 1996 and declared war against the U.S. Hamza went with him and appeared in al Qaeda propaganda videos. As leader of al Qaeda, Osama oversaw operations against Western targets that culminated in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the Pentagon and New York's World Trade Center. U.S. Navy SEALS killed Osama bin Laden during 2011 raid on his compound in Pakistan.

A hacker gained access to 100 million Capital One credit card applications and accounts

Source: CNN

New York (CNN Business)In one of the biggest data breaches ever, a hacker gained access to more than 100 million Capital One customers' accounts and credit card applications earlier this year.

Paige Thompson is accused of breaking into a Capital One server and gaining access to 140,000 Social Security numbers, 1 million Canadian Social Insurance numbers and 80,000 bank account numbers, in addition to an undisclosed number of people's names, addresses, credit scores, credit limits, balances, and other information, according to the bank and the US Department of Justice.

A criminal complaint says Thompson tried to share the information with others online. The 33-year-old, who lives in Seattle, had previously worked as a tech company software engineer for Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, the cloud hosting company that Capital One was using, the Justice Department said. She was able to gain access by exploiting a misconfigured web application firewall, according to a court filing.

Thompson was arrested Monday in connection with the breach, the Justice Department said. Thompson's attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
