WSJ article about collusion between GOP and Russians
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-alleged-russian-hacker-teamed-up-with-florida-gop-operative-1495724787

Yeah, I know that the WSJ is not conservative enough for some of y'all, but it is intriguing nonetheless. You know, the way journalists connect dots and shit.

US intelligence leaks compromise UK terrorism investigation.
After the Manchester bombing, US intelligence has repeatedly leaked confidential information about the UK's investigation. Seems like US officers are taking after Trump.
Could you just fuck off instead please?

Should Jared Kushner security clearance be suspended?
http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/335243-dnc-suspend-kushner-security-clearance-amid-fbi-scrutiny

The DNC, for political purposes obviously, wants to suspend Jared Kushner's security clearance. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason by Jared secretly met with the CEO from VEB, the Russian state-owned bank.

Cars.com just pulled their ads from Hannity over the Seth Rich fake news propagated by Hannity even after Fox retracted the story. Corporate censorship of the press? Nope.

Answering a PM question here...

Point prizes will only be awarded after the tournament is finished, not immediately if you're knocked out in a point winning position.

According to my calculations, there are now fewer than 30 players still live in the tournament. (Waiting for games = more time to look at stats.)

So we managed to complete four rounds in four months, and the tournament has 14/15 rounds, so we should be finished by early 2018 maybe?

Now that I'm out, it should be going much faster.
Only the fastest survive.

Guide for 17 player map?
Hello, I'm thinking about joining a 17 person map, but I have no clue if there are any strategies for this sort of thing. Everything that I've found so far, unless super general, relates to the 7 country map. Are there any guides or tips you could give me so that I'm more prepared for this map? Thanks!

Why is Terrorism the only time people feel a visceral response?
I noticed recently there was an incident where a man crashed his car into multiple people injuring many and killing someone. But because it was not terrorism, people did not seem motivated in the same manner against alcoholism as they would have if he were a terrorist. If he had indeed been from any Muslim country at all, and also under the influence of alcohol, one has to wonder if people would just automatically assume it was a terror plot.
