Giuliani to serve as cybersecurity adviser to Trump

No.99397 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
>Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will take on an advisory role in Donald Trump's administration regarding cybersecurity issues, the President-elect's transition team said Thursday.

>"Rudy Giuliani will be sharing his expertise and insight as a trusted friend concerning private sector cyber security problems and emerging solutions developing in the private sector," Trump's transition team said in a statement.

>"In addition, from time to time because of the changing nature of this problem, it is contemplated that the President-elect will be hosting a series of meetings with senior corporate executives from companies which have faced or are facing challenges similar to those facing the government and public entities today, such as hacking, intrusions, disruptions, manipulations, theft of data and identities, and securing information technology infrastructure," the statement read.

>"No consensus advice or recommendations resulting from group deliberations or interaction is expected or will be solicited," it added.

>Giuliani, already an informal adviser to and surrogate for Trump, will not be given a title for the role.

>The former New York mayor had been a consistent advocate and spokesperson for Trump throughout his campaign and had, in the days following the mogul's win, been expected to be rewarded with a cabinet or cabinet-level post inside the administration.

What a fucking joke.

JUSTICE SERVED! - Black man beaten in Charlottesville found not guilty of assaulting Nazis

No.238382 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

A black man brutally beaten at last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville — and who was later charged with assaulting a white nationalist — was acquitted Friday.

DeAndre Harris, 20, a former special education instructional assistant, was found not guilty by Charlottesville General District Court Judge Robert Downer Jr. on a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery against Harold Crews, a North Carolina lawyer and state chairman of the self-described white nationalist group League of the South. If Harris had been convicted, he would have faced up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

The acquittal is a relief for Harris, who was beaten inside a parking garage next to the city’s police department on Aug. 12, 2017. He suffered a spinal injury and head lacerations that required 10 stitches.

Two months later, his legal path took an unexpected turn when Crews filed a police report and persuaded a Charlottesville magistrate to issue an arrest warrant in October on a felony charge of unlawful wounding, which carries a five-year maximum sentence. The news was cheered online by supporters of white nationalism, which is focused on the goal of achieving a whites-only state.

Before issuing his ruling Friday, Downer warned the crowd to “restrain” their emotions. As he spoke, it was unclear how he would rule, and many attendees — nearly all of them Harris supporters — looked worried.

The judge condemned the Unite the Right ralliers and counterprotesters.

“The behavior I’ve seen is appalling,” he said. “I can say this without question — that there was bad behavior all around.”

He also defended Crews. “I didn’t see that he did anything wrong that day at all.”

San Francisco plan for taxing the rich to house the poor

No.55175 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
>San Francisco’s long, complex and often fraught relationship with the tech industry has come to a head with a proposal to levy a “tech tax” on the companies that have fueled the city’s transformation into a place that is increasingly uninhabitable for people on low or medium incomes.
>Every week brings new outrages, whether it’s the tenant in North Beach who, it emerged this week, received a notice informing him that his rent was increasing from $1,800 a month to $8,000, or the kindergarten teacher whose building was bought by two tech workers and, it was revealed this month, is now facing eviction for nuisance violations that include “using appliances”.

>The anger finds its outlet in different ways. Queer activist group Gay Shame regularly plasters telephone poles around town with posters featuring slogans such as “Brogrammers off the block” or drawings of the severed heads of tech CEOs on spikes. In the Mission, a Latino neighborhood being transformed by an influx of tech gentrifiers, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, graffiti recently appeared on the sidewalks declaring “Queers Hate Techies”.

>Meanwhile, more than a few tech workers have gained viral notoriety for anti-homeless screeds, such as a February 2016 “open letter” that included the complaint: “I shouldn’t have to see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.”

>A female Google employee stood on the sidewalk one afternoon this week, a block from Twitter HQ, distributing free hot dogs and watermelon to a cluster of homeless and poor people.
