I don't use Facebook, so I will just link future employers to the Flat Earth Society!

The posts on Parler are about the same as posts on /pol and Gab, but they also had lots of more normal content. It's a weird mix. They should start an instance on the fediverse, and spend money on being self hosted.

If they got rid of section 230 completely then every website that moderates content would be considered a publisher, and would be subject to liability lawsuits. You'd have the option of not moderating content at all, but I already know what that looks like. A bunch of super edgy trolls dropping the n word in every conversation, and swastikas everywhere!

Gab is really weird. I know a guy who was hired by them to fix their code. They wouldn't let him! Then they defederated for some reason, and I haven't kept up with them since then.

Also, everyone seems to be ignoring the fact that most of the planning for the Capitol riot happened on Facebook, not Parler. There have been no repercussions against Facebook, and I don't imagine there will be. Are they too big to be removed from the app stores?

The GOP is full of self-serving selfish assholes who care for nothing but their own enrichment.

...and the Democrats?

How dare you! The Democrats are pure.

This is going to cost Trump about $17 million a year https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-new-york/new-york-city-ending-business-ties-with-trump-organization-mayor-says-idUSKBN29I1R8

Maybe that's why he's going to stiff Rudy on his legal fees and travel costs?

I'd link to the WAPO article but it's behind a paywall.   

"Trump has instructed aides not to pay Giuliani’s legal fees, two officials said, and has demanded that he personally approve any reimbursements for the expenses Giuliani incurred while traveling on the president’s behalf to challenge election results in key states. They said Trump has privately expressed concern with some of Giuliani’s moves and did not appreciate a demand from Giuliani for $20,000 a day in fees for his work attempting to overturn the election."

Now I'm waiting for Rudy to book the Four Seasons Total Landscaping carpark for a press conference exposing Trump corruption.

Any guesses as to when the trial will be held?

I just read that the Senate hearings won't be until next week.

Most of the riot was planned on Facebook. How long before Google and Apple take the Facebook app out of their stores? Never, probably. It was all Parler's fault!

With 10 republicans voting to impeach the president from their own party, this is the most bipartisan impeachment in American history.


I suppose this is true. Only three presidents have been impeached, and none of them were convicted.

Quote
The acting U.S. attorney for Northern Georgia, who was named after his predecessor reportedly angered President Trump for not finding election fraud, told staffers in a conference call Monday that he dismissed two election fraud cases on his first day.

“I would love to stand out on the street corner and scream this, and I can’t,” said Bobby Christine, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“But I can tell you I closed the two most — I don’t know, I guess you’d call them high profile or the two most pressing election issues this office has,” he said. “I said I believe, as many of the people around the table believed, there’s just nothing to them.”

Christine also said he found fewer election-related investigations in the office than he expected.

“Quite frankly, just watching television you would assume that you got election cases stacked from the floor to the ceiling,” said Christine. “I am so happy to find out that’s not the case, but I didn’t know coming in.”

Interesting, not even people Trump put in place to help him can find election fraud. I wonder if it will ever be enough for his fans.

No, I do not think they should expand the Supreme Court. One side always panics over the other side having a majority.

I think we need to figure out how to stop Congress from playing politics with the SC. Maybe a rule that says they're not allowed to block the confirmation process, like Mitch did with Merrick Garland. They don't have to agree with the nomination, but they should have the hearings, they should honor the process, they should have to go on the official record for why they approve or disapprove of a nominee.

Oh Mitch, Mitch, Mitch, the road your headed down isn’t one you want to be on. If you support impeachment I can promise this will be your last term in office. All the RNC $$ in the world won’t get you re-elected.

Let's see... Mitch is 78, he just got reelected, Senate terms are 6 years. I'm pretty sure this is his last term anyway! Tomi can take the credit. lol

Cocaine Mitch is trending on Twitter right now because he supports impeachment. Unless he is a very good actor, I think he might be actually furious at Trump.

Microsoft-owned GitHub is facing an employee backlash after a Jewish employee was terminated two days after suggesting there were "Nazis" among the US Capitol rioters in an internal chat room.

...

On January 6th — the day of the siege of the US Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters — an employee at Microsoft-owned GitHub took to an internal Slack chat room to warn coworkers in the greater Washington DC area to "stay safe homies, Nazis are about," with a sad emoji.

A coworker was quick to criticize the employee for using divisive rhetoric, igniting a firestorm of internal debate, with many jumping in to take sides. That same day, HR reprimanded the employee, who is Jewish, for using the word "Nazi" in the workplace.

On Friday, two days later, the employee told Insider that he was terminated, with human resources citing unspecified "patterns of behavior." The employee asked not to be named, citing concerns over online harassment, but his identity is known to Insider.

"I did not know that, as a Jew, it would be so polarizing to say this word," the former employee wrote in a Slack group for Jewish employees, in a message viewed by Insider. The employee says he sent the message during the meeting where he was officially terminated from GitHub, before his corporate accounts got deactivated.


Were they worried he hurt a Nazi's feelings? Jesus, there was a guy at the protest/rally/riot/insurrection wearing a "Camp Auschwitz" hoodie.

Trump spoke to reporters today https://www.yahoo.com/gma/trump-lashes-impeachment-effort-claims-161829721.html  I can't find the video of it on youtube yet, but yahoo is not behind a paywall so you can watch it there.  Another video I saw (uploaded from cspan to the fediverse so I can't post that either) he is talking about the tremendous success of the completed border wall, and that some caravans are headed this way. lol

QAnon shit is on Facebook, and the people who have never heard of 4chan are thinking there's going to be a blackout, the ATMs, and the internet are going to go down. My mom has a Facebook and asked me what is happening. I looked at what a family friend sent her, and it was a screenshot of someone on Parler pretending to be Donald J. Trump.

Look out for your old people!

Both diplomats said that an investigation into the matter could be a challenge, considering how many people have administrative access to the content management system used for the State Department’s official website.
This statement is frightening.
Why?  Because it means either they have no tracking on who makes changes (fucking wikipedia has that) or they all share one login.
Nit sure which is worse.

Everybody was making fun of Parler for using Wordpress, who knew the govt did too?
