Lying to get elected, is that ok?
Senator Claire McCaskill got caught lying to win an election. Her tight race with Republican candidate Josh Hawley has become mainstream news with the release of 2 undercover videos showing McCaskill lying to voters about important matters to win the race. A group called Project Veritas infiltrated the campaign of Sen. McCaskill and filmed some candid and controversial footage while posing as staff. This undercover work is nothing new for James O’Keefe of Project Veritas who travels across the country exposing hidden truths. Even on positions as polarizing as abortion rights, she takes money from both sides. Most expect politicians are lying most of the time and getting to see it on video confirms the prejudice that keeps the majority at home on election day. It doesn’t have to be that way and people like James O’Keefe are helping educate people who don’t know where to look.
“We have hidden cam videotapes of U.S. senators and their staffers, and we’re going to release them starting next week up until the election.” https://t.co/wRDm1Gfo71

We will see if McCaskill can convince the voters to vote in someone who behind their back is not what is on display. The election of Donald Trump was proof that anyone with the real support of the people can win elections and make changes never thought possible.
She clearly learned from the best. Hillary Clinton has been accused of rigging the primaries against Bernie Sanders, colluding with foreign elements to attack Donald Trump and being part of a corrupt enterprise called the Clinton Foundation. Her new tour is rallying her base for a midterm Blue Wave and the question is who will be to blame when it crashes into the Trump wall?
#saveyourinternet is about bringing attention to the latest attack on the internet Article 13. The EU Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market being distributed to member countries will make content platforms liable for their content as well as create a link tax to fund enforcement. This sounds great on paper but what it will do is prevent small voices from publishing content. The platforms will not take the risk of infringement so massive barriers will be put up and only established “trusted” sources will be available. Already the GDPR is reaching outside of the EU because the economy is now GLOBAL. Spread the news and information and stop this attack on free speech.
