    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday refuted claims that Democratic campaign memos, leaked this week by a hacker group, originated from her personal computer. The story can't be true, her office said, because Pelosi doesn't have a personal computer at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) headquarters, which was infiltrated earlier this summer by hackers thought to be tied to Russian intelligence. Pelosi has long warned that the hackers, who also tapped into files held by the Democratic National Committee, were attempting to sway the outcome of November's elections by embarrassing Democrats with a slow drip of leaked...

Schweizer, after scouring once-classified KGB, East German Stasi and Soviet Communist Party files, discovered incontrovertible evidence that the Soviets not only played footsie with high-ranking Democrats, they also worked behind the scenes to influence American elections.

"Normally I set mine to Google's [IP address] and it wasn't that, it...

    Perhaps it's wrong to gloat, but I'm going to anyway because the very existence of this site has always bugged the $#*t out of me, standing as a glaring, in-your-face example of how our society is in complete and utter†moral free-fall.

    Telecomix is a hacktivist group of loosely connected individuals who are primarily known for bringing clean lines of communication to war torn areas where information is suppressed.

They also figured out how to provide a mass message to...
