The CEO of YouTube Susan Wojcicki announced that she will step down. She says that she wants to focus on her family, health, and personal projects. That’s nice for her but she may still have to testify before the House Judiciary Committee to comply with recent subpoenas about “censorship” collaboration.

“Capital can no longer maintain its profitability by exploiting labor alone. This much has been clear for some time. There is only so much surplus value to be extracted before the surplus is insufficient. The great reset is really about capitalism’s end-game. Those promoting it realize the economic and social system must undergo a reset to a ‘new normal’, something that might no longer re [...]

A newly released video exposes the lie of cops who shot at a black man they said had struck an officer with his car. However, the man had posed no threat, was not a suspect and was never subsequently charged.
On April 5, witnesses of a fist fight at the New World Bar and Grill at 504 Riehl Street in Waterloo, Iowa, called the police. They just wanted the cops to stop the brawl. [...]
Decades of letting neocons dictate a hawkish foreign policy have put the American Republic in profound danger, just as presidents from George Washington to Dwight Eisenhower predicted, warnings that Americans must finally take to heart, says ex-U.S. diplomat William R. Polk.
