2016: The Year Americans Found Out Their Elections Are Rigged





"We The People" don’t choose our presidents; they are hand-picked by a powerful group of political party insiders - parties that have long since sold out to the highest bidders. What we have on our hands in America is a rigged oligarchy, and that’s not a conspiracy theory - it’s fact.

The San Bernardino Massacre: Perceptions, Propaganda, And Blowback





As for the authoritarians who want to use incidents like the San Bernardino attack as a pretext to abolish the Constitution and institute a regime of total surveillance and outright repression: where was their vaunted surveillance system in this case? We didn’t detect this plot – and perhaps that’s because watching everyone, and collecting everyone’s information, blinds us to the real villains hiding in our midst.
