These people just don’t get it. This high minded nose in the air intellectual I’m better than you attitude is what cost them the election in the first place. It doesn’t get more insulting than this. via Weasel Zippers

The Chicago white kid video is infuriating but when you think about how and why these kids get this violent and depraved look no further than the people who brought them into the world. Below is an example of a mother cheering and giving direction to her daughter fighting with another girl.
Not much hope for your future when this is how you are raised, imagine what the fighting daughter will teach her kids.
And the vicious circle of life continues.
Just so everyone is clear. It was the Democratic National Committee that hired a private firm to look into their hacked emails. No federal agency did any analysis yet they are the ones who said it was the Russians, because the firm hired by the DNC said so.
Read that again…..I’ll wait…….
Stunning, absolutely stunning.
Never? Not once? The FBI has consistently asserted that the hack of the Democratic National Committee was an operation linked to the Russian government, even if they were less convinced that the Russians wanted to elect Donald Trump as a result. Last night, however, BuzzFeed’s Ali Watkins reported that the DNC has told her that the FBI never requested access to their servers, nor has any other government agency. Instead, they relied on a report from a private vendor:
The FBI did not examine the servers of the Democratic National Committee before issuing a report attributing the sweeping cyberintrusion to Russia-backed hackers, BuzzFeed News has learned.
Six months after the FBI first said it was investigating the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s computer network, the bureau has still not requested access to the hacked servers, a DNC spokesman said. No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system, one US intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.
“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” Eric Walker, the DNC’s deputy communications director, told BuzzFeed News in an email.
So who did check out the hacked servers? The DNC brought in a well-respected outfit called Crowdstrike to check out their systems, and it was Crowdstrike that concluded that the DNC was the victim of a Russian-government hack. “Crowdstrike is pretty good,” Watkins’ intel-community source told her, adding that they had no reason to believe that Crowdstrike got it wrong.
I don’t give a shit how good Crowdstrike may be, if they were hired by the DNC and the DNC wanted a desired outcome I would imagine Crowdstrike would be willing to factor any story they wanted. To say that this is sketchy is an understatement.
