Yeah, let's keep worrying about the Russians and ignore DHS

and whatever-the-hell they're up to.
ATLANTA - Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Aaron Diamant has learned two more states’ election agencies have confirmed suspected cyberattacks linked to the same U.S. Department of Homeland Security IP address as last month’s massive attack in Georgia.
In a letter this week, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told Kemp the department sourced the mid-November activity in Georgia to a federal contractor conducting what he called "normal" internet searches on the Secretary of State's website. But Kemp says there’s a problem with that answer.

“We haven't been able to recreate this the way they explained it to us,” Kemp said.

Kemp also told Diamant that DHS has yet to explain at least nine other suspected network scans linked to DHS IP addresses over the last year on or around important primary and presidential election dates. Kemp's call for answers is amplified now by the National Association of Secretaries of State, or NASS.
But let's keep having fits about what the Russians may have done.

"But it's for Green Energy, so who cares about some dead birds, right?"
The Obama administration on Wednesday finalized a rule that lets wind-energy companies operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years - even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles.

Under the new rule, wind companies and other power providers will not face a penalty if they kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles, nearly four times the current limit. Deaths of the more rare golden eagles would be allowed without penalty so long as companies minimize losses by taking steps such as retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution.

Because making it easier for women to defend themselves is bad.  For some idiot reason.
Liberal Canadian MP Patty Hajdu has spoken out against a law that would legalize pepper spray and mace, saying it “places the onus on women to defend themselves rather than addressing and preventing gender-based violence.”
These idiots actually believe that if you just hold enough classes, the bad guys won't do bad things anymore...  Read some of the supportive comments, it's amazing.
