The left turns on Bill Clinton, Biden over behavior toward women

The left turns on Bill Clinton, Biden over behavior toward women | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
In the wake of an outpouring of sexual misconduct allegations hitting the world of media and politics, the left is slowly but steadily turning on former President Bill Clinton -- and even former Vice President Joe Biden -- over their behavior toward women.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I always felt Bill Clinton should have passed Gore the Oval Office. It would have made him seem more honorable and given Gore a chance to prove himself. Even when he was in office he was more interested in hand the office to his wife and padding her resume for the job than he was for Gore.

FCC moves to abandon rural telephone | Sean McLaughlin | AccessHumboldt.net

Access Humboldt joins opposition to FCC's move to push early retirement of copper telephone networks

Along with a broad range of consumer, rural, elderly, labor, civil and human rights, and low-
income organizations, Access Humboldt joined a letter to Federal Communications Commission chair Ajit Pai expressing concerns about his proposal for early retirement of legacy copper telephone networks serving large swaths of rural territory, including much of Humboldt County and the North Coast region.

Access Humboldt's executive director Sean McLaughlin said: "We join this effort to ensure that rural communities are not relegated to second class status in the digital future. Reasonable consumer protections are necessary to ensure that profit seeking corporations deliver reliable, robust and resilient telecom services to every community. We have a long history and a legacy social contract that has paid these private corporations a pretty sum to meet local needs and interests - having collected those funds, profiteers now seek to renege on their obligations as 'carriers of last resort.'"

The group's letter (online here https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/11090039324560/Joint%20Wireline%20Broadband... and attached below) notes that: "Contrary to the proceeding’s stated purpose, the radical rule changes in the draft Report and Order will make it more difficult to achieve the very goals the Commission aims to achieve."

Trump calls Clinton 'biggest loser of all time' after she contests election loss

Trump calls Clinton 'biggest loser of all time' after she contests election loss | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
President Trump on Saturday criticized Hillary Clinton, the Democrat he defeated in the 2016 White House race, for her recent and repeated questioning of the election results.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Russians did not affect my vote but research shows they absolutely affected enough people to have cost Hillary the additional states she needed. I wonder however why she and others didn’t and don’t focus on the corrupting influence that has hijacked the entire GOP and shaped the thinking of too many citizens in this nation? That would be in general be the twisted libertarian take over of the GOP by Cato Institute, The Heritage Foundation, ALEC American Legislative Exchange Council and of course FOX News Corp serves these groups better for propaganda than Russia Today ever could,I do think Hillary hit the nail on the head here though. Were the people in the Trump campaign providing target information to Russian Propaganda efforts to assist them in their misinformation campaign? He and his people would have had access to this kind of info about Republican voters and swing voter targets and more. I personally get email straight from his people sent to me from my employer allowing his campaign access to my work email...I neversigned up to receive such mailExcerpt:“I think it was one of the major contributors to the outcome," she said. "Propaganda works. Advertising works. It's a form of propaganda. So the Russians may have started out a little heavy-handed and clumsy about it, but they were clearly getting guided as to where to target a lot of their fraudulent claims and phony news."
