Wikileaks says it has published CIA hacking codes
WikiLeaks published thousands of CIA files and documents Tuesday.

WikiLeaks posted on its website thousands of documents Tuesday it described as hacking files and related material from the Central Intelligence Agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in what Wikileaks called the “largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency.”

Wikileaks said the document dump represents a new series of leaks it had code-named “Vault 7.” The website says the CIA “lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal,” more than several hundred million lines of code, providing “the entire hacking capacity of the CIA.”

I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.

On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.

Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film. I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!

Best of Hillary at the Al Smith dinner
  • I took a break from my rigorous nap schedule to be here. And as you’ve already heard, it’s a treat for all of you too, because usually, I charge a lot for speeches like this.”
  • “Getting through these three debates with Donald has to count as a miracle, so I guess I’m up against the highest, hardest, stained glass ceiling.”
  • “I just wanna put you all in a basket of adorables.”
  • “You look so good in your tuxes, or as I refer to them, ‘formal pantsuits.’”
  • “Donald, if at any time you don’t like what I’m saying, feel free to stand up and shout ‘WRONG’ while I’m talking.”
  • “It’s amazing I’m up here after Donald. I didn’t think he’d be okay with a peaceful transition of power.”
  • “Donald, after listening to your speech, I will also enjoy listening to Mike Pence deny that you ever gave it.”
  • “Remember, if you don’t like how it turned out, it must be rigged.”
  • “People look at the Statue of Liberty and see a proud symbol […] Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a 4, maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair.”
  • “I understand I am not known for my sense of humor. That’s why it did take a village to write these jokes.”
  • I’m not boring at all. In fact, I’m the life of every party I attend, and I’ve been to three.”
  • “When the parties get out of hand, as occasionally they do, it’s important to have a responsible chaperone who can get everyone home safely, and that is why I picked Tim Kaine to be my vice president.”
  • “You notice there is no teleprompter here tonight, which is probably smart because maybe you saw Donald dismantle his prompter the other day. And I get that. They’re hard to keep up with, and I’m sure it’s even harder when you’re translating from the original Russian.”
  • “Donald wanted me drug-tested before last night’s debate, and look, I gotta tell you, I am so flattered that Donald thought I used some sort of performance enhancer. Now actually, I did. It’s called preparation.”
  • “I’ve had to listen to Donald for three full debates, and he says I don’t have any stamina. That is four and a half hours. I have now stood next to Donald longer than any of his campaign managers.”
  • “Whoever wins this election, the outcome will be historic. We will either have the first female president or the first president who started a Twitter war with Cher.
  • “If Donald does win, it’ll be awkward at the annual President’s Day photo, when all the former presidents gather at the White House. And not just with Bill – how is Barack gonna get past the Muslim ban?
  • Donald has issues. Serious issues. Really, really serious issues.”
  • “[Donald] actually sent me a car to bring me here tonight. Actually, it was a hearse.”
  • “Donald really is as healthy as a horse, you know, the one Vladimir Putin rides around on.”
  • “I will be the healthiest and youngest woman ever to serve as president.”
  • “I’ve tried to inspire young people […] and [Donald] is doing the same. A third-grade teacher told me that one of her students refused to turn in his homework because it was under audit.”
  • “Here’s another similarity. The Republican National Committee isn’t spending a dime to help either one of us.”
  • “Let’s embrace the spirit of the evening, let’s come together, remember what unites us, and just rip on Ted Cruz.”
  • “I hope you enjoyed my remarks tonight. I said ‘no’ to some jokes that I thought were over the line, but I suppose you can judge for yourself on Wikileaks in the next few days.”
Fox Affiliate Accused of “Inaccurate” Reporting

There’s no doubt that much of the criticism of various news networks these days is political and self-serving, but there is one story making the rounds that may rise above that fray, if only just. According to CNN (full disclosure), the family of a former Democratic National Committee staffer is demanding Fox News retract “inaccurate reports” about Seth Rich’s unsolved murder.

Did you really need hacked emails from Sony to confirm that Hollywood execs are racist? Did you really need WikiLeaks to reveal that the U.S. Military are sadists? Did you really need to watch the Grammy’s to know that mainstream music is complacent? Did you really need to see Eric Garner’s murder on video to know that police terrorism is beyond blatant?

It’s not just the GOP who’ll thwart Clinton. Liberals are gearing up for battle, too.

it’s not just Republicans gearing up to try and stonewall her legislative agenda 18 days before Election Day even arrives. Liberal activists frustrated by revelations in the Wikileaks hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails are now preparing to thwart any potential Clinton cabinet appointments they feel fall into 3 boxes.

anonymous asked:

Could you please shed more light on Hanayo, Rin, Tsubasa and Honoka from the SW AU? It'd be lovely to hear how they all started to work with the SW Trio

of course! i’ve been meaning to do a side post, i’m glad you asked or i would’ve forgotten it: 

fun fact #1: Hanayo is a NEET

fun fact #2: The Hoshizoras are the go to gang for all kinds of weapons and explosives

fun fact #3: The Kousakas are neutral, they are con artists and you can hire them to steal your enemies’ fortune but you have to share half with them. Tsubasa is the Hanayo to the Kousakas with the exception she joined them bc when Honoka is your friend and tries to convince you to do something, you get pulled along and before you know it, you’re in too deep
