A Search Tool for Finding Fake Facebook Profiles

Last week we talked about foreign profiles creating fake news sites and posting links in political groups with American audiences. I gave you several groups to visit, to see whether you could find any accounts from outside the US posting content there. I just went back and checked a few, and I saw posts from Pakistan, the Philippines, Benin, Denmark, India, Switzerland, and several other places. These profiles weren’t hiding their nationality – you could see it on their profiles pretty clearly.

Trump wants to make being a cooperating witness, “flipping”, illegal

Should Trump make flipping illegal in order to protect himself from being implicated in a federal crime? This is the latest outrageous statement made by Donald Trump. Apparently he really does believe he’s above the law and entitled to change the laws in order to benefit him. This would be a dark day on the American justice system if Trump could unilaterally change the law, but thankfully this is not how our system of government works and Congress would have to pass legislation to change the law. It’s come to the point that if the GOP doesn’t start speaking out against this president and consider impeachment they are complicit in aiding a lawless administration.
