Politico EXPOSED For Lazy Hit Piece On Real News, We Are Change

 

[Written by Rachel Blevins]
Luke Rudkowski’s response to the latest Politico hitpiece:
This sorry excuse for a story is one of those that puts the “lame” in the lamestream media, and it attempted to call out both me and WeAreChange.org, saying that we spread “fake news.” In reality, Simon Van Zuylen-Wood’s “This is What It’s Like to Read Fake News for Two Weeks” reads like the diary of a New York Hipster who is bitching and moaning because his echo-chamber has burst and he is trying to cope outside of his safe space.
There is one initial point Simon makes that I agree with, when he writes, “My working theory was that you can learn a lot about a fake news adherent from the company he keeps—especially on social media, where it’s possible to create bespoke echo chambers.” But the agreement stops there.
Alright, you say you spent TWO WEEKS investigating “fake news” and then you bring my name into it, so I want to know—what do you have on me? After investigating me, what is the worst thing you found?
“I scanned my feed to determine who was right. Cernovich was mostly doing Pizzagate coverage but also recommended I return to www.wearechange.org, where a contributor named @LukeWeAreChange was narrating developments in Syria,” Simon wrote. “Luke was filming himself at his desk, where he addressed the dichotomy head on. ‘With Assad having victory, the west and the mainstream media are freaking out in full hysteria,’ he told his viewers. ‘A lot of biased information meant to emotionally manipulate you.’”
He then went on to writer that I said, “You’re not getting this side of the story by the American mainstream media.” Uh yeah… BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT!
You had two weeks, and this is the worst thing you could find on me? I gave both sides of the story. I showed you a source from an American mainstream media article, and I showed you what someone on the ground reporting from a different point of view and what they’re telling their audience.
That is what journalism is! You present multiple sides, and you let the audience decide for themselves! You actually take the time to investigate, and then you source the information—as we do on our YouTube channel and website.
What Simon did was nitpick information and sources in order to make the claims he listed in his story, and he didn’t even address, investigate or debunk them. All he did was bitch and complain about them. He then hints at censorship he would like to see that doesn’t hurt his own personal bias.
“Watchdogs published lists of websites to disbelieve,”  Simon wrote — OK… You mean that fake “watchdog” website Propornot that was promoted by the Washington Post before they were forced to place an “editor’s note” on their story admitting that Propornot was not a credible source???
Simon then wrote that he “watched and tried to imagine what was going through the mind of the man who sees the world through faux-tinted glasses.” — He might as well have been talking about himself. In his “attempt” to break through the barrier of his own echo chamber, he is only calling for more censorship on the people who do not fit into his liberal safe space.
If Simon Van Zuylen-Wood really wanted to get to the bottom of fake news, he wouldn’t be writing for a news organization that has supported a chief political correspondent like Glenn Thrush, who identified himself as a “hack” when he was submitting stories about Hillary Clinton to her campaign—before submitting them to his own editors.
Just to clear things up for people like Simon…. I am not left. I am not right. I call things like I see them. There is a reason Bill O’Reilly called We Are Change “Jihad-loving liberals,” and Chris Matthews attacked us as “Right-wing racist tea-baggers.” We call out the establishment when it needs to be called out. That is the true dichotomy that we’re facing here. Establishment vs. non-establishment.

Legal Marijuana Creates Hundreds of New Hi-Tech Businesses

Marijuanna The New Green Business- 

Legal marijuana sales are experiencing explosive growth in the United States, and are expected to top $7 billion this year.

The drug is now legal in some form in more than half of all U.S. states after ballot initiatives passed in several parts of the country in November elections.

As CCTV America’s Steve Mort reports from Florida;

The increasing availability of legal marijuana is spawning a host of industries designed to support the cannabis sector.

At this tech company in Fort Lauderdale, programmers have reason for optimism. Patrick Vo runs BioTrackTHC which is set to benefit from moves to legalize marijuana. Vo’s company develops computer programs to help retailers and the government keep tabs on sales.

BioTrackTHC began as a traditional tech firm, developing software to monitor pharmaceutical sales.

But with annual legal marijuana sales expected to top $22 billion by 2020, BioTrackTHC is capitalizing on strict state-level rules requiring cannabis plants to be accounted for from seed to sale.

While some pot-related technology companies are helping the marijuana industry meet its legal obligations, others are reaching out to marijuana users themselves.

Darren Roberts and Kenny Frisman came up with an idea for a social media platform called HighThere! which they describe as a “Tinder for tokers.” Their app connects some 400,000 marijuana users in about 15 countries.

“People connect in a comfortable environment where the stigma that, at times, comes with the cannabis consumer is sort of lifted,” Darren Roberts Co-founder, HighThere! said.

But with some form of legal marijuana now permitted in 28 U.S. states, industry analysts believe the cannabis tech startups will eventually face stiff competition from Silicon Valley.

The cannabis industry is also keeping a watchful eye on how the incoming Trump administration will treat marijuana which remains illegal under federal law.

But with legal cannabis sales expected to increase 26 percent this year, budding marijuana tech entrepreneurs say they’re confident, at least for now, that their plans won’t go up in smoke.

How Butt-Hurt Clinton Supporters Are Challenging Democracy

The 2016 election has turned over 3 million Clinton supporters into “sore losers” who are now challenging the democratic process with a petition on Change.org urging the Electoral College to “Make Hillary Clinton President On December 19.”

gty_donald_trump_hillary_clinton_sk_150619_16x9_992

Their aim is to plead with members of the US Electoral College to change their vote. They argue that “Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump ‘won’ is because of the Electoral College.”

However, that’s not how democracy works. In the 2000 election when Al Gore won the popular vote, but lost the Electoral College vote to Republican George W. Bush, the results did not change, and Gore was not elected President. It didn’t work that way then, and it won’t work this way now.

Donald Trump won the election fair and square. 290 electoral votes for Trump, 228 for Clinton. While the petition cites that Clinton won the popular votes, it is important to note that she only won it by about 0.1 percent. With 46.9% of Americans not even voting.

But this doesn’t stop passionate Clinton supporters from trying to override the democratic system, as is evident from the fact that this petition has over 3.5 million, from the goal of 4.5 million, signatures.

The Electoral College is part of the Constitution and it is composed of 538 members. Each state, and the District of Columbia, has one member for every senator or House lawmaker. The members don’t formally cast their votes until December 19, and because of this, Clinton supporters are making a last ditch attempt to try and steal the presidency from Trump. By trying to get electorates to vote against the nominee who gained the most votes in their state.

The creator of this petition, Elijah Berg, says that not all states require their electorate to vote for the Presidential candidate who won the most votes in that state. Regarding the states that do have this requirement, they argue that “Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!”

I’m not sure what this person’s idea of a “small fine” is, but the fine which an electorate would have to pay if they vote against their state regulations is between $500-$3000.

The creator also states that “The Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?” But by blatantly stating that undemocratic means should be used to ensure a “democratic result” you bypass and go against the very foundations of a fair democracy.

This petition is highly unlikely to change the results of this presidential election. Trump won by a clear lead in electoral votes, and 37 electorates would have to vote against Trump to make him lose the majority, which just isn’t going to happen. And perhaps most importantly, Hillary Clinton has conceded the election and has acknowledged Donald Trump as the winner. So rest assure, the wicked witch of the west will almost certainly not be put in power.
