This is amazing investigation that shows not only how little facebook cares about all the scams being run on it, but how easy it is to rake in millions:

Used to be you wanted to run a successful flim flam operation, you had to travel from town to town just to reach a few dozen people. Now you can reach hundreds of millions with the right tools.

@NicholasAHeras  @faysalitaniT  @SSiminoffhere 's more nuanced, individual cases as well. The war crimes are black and white. Other stuff isn't. I know one of the fighters. He's from Ras Al Ayn. Hates the YPG, fought them in 2013 and had to flee his home. Now he's fighting to go back.

Fine enough the billboards already I’ll watch Stumptown but only because of Jake Johnson

I've walked by this 1/10 built hotel site often and in the past 6 months I haven't seen any work being done, at all. Would be interesting to see why the project has stalled:

Kurdish twitter is, to put it politely, thoroughly unpleased with @IlhanMN  not voting to condemn Trump for pulling out and allowing Turkish invasion of northeastern Syria. Lots of pics of her meeting with Erdogan being posted.

Tulsi Gabbard, despite strong words on twitter, also didn't vote to condemn.

I don't understand why people have to go full on with the Russian asset of people like Tulsia Gabbard. She's a terrible candidate. You can focus on so many bad things without that sort of speculation that just gives her backers strawmen to attack.

the discourse will only get stupider from here on out.

Today I interviewed 87-year-old Milan Hucko in Slovakia. I wouldn’t be alive without him. When he was 14, he and his family decided to hide my grandfather, a stranger, during the Holocaust.

I’m with an elite Salvadoran police unit right now and just after going on foot patrol in an MS-13 controlled neighborhood an officer asked me why there are so many school shootings in the US.

just when you thought his administration couldn’t possibly fuck every little thing up, turns out the Trump White House bears some responsibility for romaine lettuce killing people:

Buddhist monk Ashin Wirathu is 1 of main demagogues that spread anti-rohingya hate. I interviewed him 1st in 2013:

It’s getting exhausting watching Obama aides that are suddenly *now* calling for an American President to do something about the murder of innocent women and children in Syria.

They lost the Muslim ban so now they're deploying ICE raids all over to send back Mexicans. Whoever is the most vulnerable gets targeted.
