Hillary Clinton was a Board Member of Anti-Union Wal-Mart

Hillary Clinton was a Board Member of  Anti-Union Wal-Mart | Fight Against the Two-Party System in America | Scoop.it
Of course, then, as now, Walmart’s biggest cost was labor. And to keep labor costs in check, Wal-Mart took pains to make sure its workers didn't unionize. During Clinton’s tenure, the company’s strategy for dealing with organized labor was directed by fellow board member, John Tate. Mr. Tate famously summed up his philosophy at a 2004 managers meeting: "Labor unions are nothing but blood-sucking parasites living off the productive labor of people who work for a living.”

According to former board members, Clinton did not denounce the ‘anti-union’ efforts Tate spearheaded, nor rail for increased employee wages. Donald G. Soderquist, the board’s then vice chairman, has said that not only was Clinton “not a dissenter,” but that “she was a part of those decisions.” Wal-Mart’s stock rose by more than 500% during her tenure and Clinton’s shares were worth nearly $100,000 by 1992.

San Bernardino Says FBI at Fault for Losing Data in Shooting Investigation

San Bernardino Says FBI at Fault for Losing Data in Shooting Investigation | Fight Against the Two-Party System in America | Scoop.it
The FBI reportedly asked San Bernardino County officials to tamper with the iCloud account of one of the suspected shooters in last December’s attack, in an effort that ultimately failed—making it impossible to know if there were other ways of recovering encrypted information without taking Apple to court.

Late Saturday night, San Bernardino officials contradicted the FBI’s claims as to who was at fault for a bungled effort at recovering Syed Farook’s private data from six weeks before the attack, stating that it complied with the agency’s orders to reset Farook’s iCloud password.

That effort only worked to prevent an auto-backup of the data the FBI sought, rendering the information “permanently inaccessible.”
