Big shocker, Wayne Tracker has been disappeared!

From Bloomberg here:

Exxon Mobil Corp. says a technical glitch may have prevented it from automatically preserving emails in a secondary account used by former Chief Executive Officer Rex Tillerson to discuss climate change risks and other issues under the alias Wayne Tracker.

And it appears to be a completely accidental technical glitch!

I can’t believe it!

Literally, I can’t believe it!  It’s not true.

Hmmm, did Trumpy leak his own tax returns?

From USA Today here:

David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who wrote a book about Trump and founded the website DCReport.org, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show that he obtained two pages of Trump’s 2005 tax return via the U.S. mail.

Johnston — who told Maddow that “it’s entirely possible that Donald Trump sent this to me; Donald Trump has, over the years, leaked all sorts of things” — responded in kind on Twitter: “Gee, Donald, your White House confirmed my story. POTUS fake Tweet. Sad!”

He’s also leaked on all sorts of people and places over the years as well as leaking things to the media.

As usual, you never know with El Trump-o, he’s a prismatic liar!

Cleaning up El Trump-o’s Twitter shits!

From the New York Times:

Sean Spicer said that President Trump’s unsubstantiated claims weren’t meant to be taken literally. And Kellyanne Conway tried to clarify her ideas on microwaves as spyware.

I get that.  Trump was claiming to be metaphorically wiretapped.  I’m not sure what the fuck that means but that’s what he’s saying.

 

Facebook: Surveillance for profit fine, surveillance for social control not fine!

From the Guardian here:

Facebook and Instagram have banned developers from using their data for surveillance with a new privacy policy that civil rights activists have long sought to curb spying by law enforcement.

Following revelations last year that police departments had gained special access to the social networks to track protesters, Facebook, which owns Instagram, announced on Monday that it had updated its rules to state that developers could not “use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance”.

You could say that surveillance for profit and selling advertising is a form of social control but obviously Facebook is not reaching the same conclusion.

In other words what’s good for the bottom line is not good for the po po!

El Trump-o has the power to prove that he was phone tapped.

From CBS News here:

Chaffetz confirmed that wiretapping requires obtaining a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant in court and that there would be a “paper trail” if anything did occur. He also said that the president also has the power to declassify information about a FISA order.

All right then, President Orange Hump.  Get off the fucking Twatter and declassify the FISA order and let’s get it on.

Lest anybody get their undies in a bunch J. Edgar Hoover illegally tapped phones for almost the whole run of his career at the FBI and he did it with no supervision or paper trail.

It is possible somebody tapped this hump without a court order but it’s a pretty low probability event.

It is interesting that nobody is talking about how tapping phones and putting people under surveillance is pretty undemocratic and has always been that.  We could actually get on with shit that actually matters if the power to tap phones and put people under surveillance was drastically restricted.
