    Tech billionaires are plotting sweeping, secret plans to boost Joe Biden
    Inside the experiments, data wars, and partisan news sites that Silicon Valley thinks can help Biden catch up to Trump.






    Reid Hoffman, Eric Schmidt, Dustin Moskovitz, and Laurene Powell Jobs, Silicon Valley’s new power set, are instrumental to fulfilling Democrats’ four-year-long quest to oust Donald Trump.

    Joe Biden has a problem. Silicon Valley billionaires think they have a solution.

    Election Day is less than six months away, and Democrats are scrambling to patch the digital deficits of their presumptive nominee. And behind the scenes, Silicon Valley’s billionaire Democrats are spending tens of millions of dollars on their own sweeping plans to catch up to President Donald Trump’s lead on digital campaigning — plans that are poised to make them some of the country’s most influential people when it comes to shaping the November results.

    These billionaires’ arsenals are funding everything from nerdy political science experiments to divisive partisan news sites to rivalrous attempts to overhaul the party’s beleaguered data file. They are pushing their favored, sometimes peculiar, fixes to a political ailment just like they might if on the board of a struggling startup.

    This is all unfolding as the pandemic forces campaigns to pivot away from door-knocks and packed rallies and toward data mining and influencer marketing — which in many ways play to the strengths of these tech titans, making them even more influential at a time when many in the Democratic Party are uneasy with just how powerful some in tech have become.

    Their investments matter all the more because of the candidate they inherited. Biden is rushing to hire more aides, create more engaging content, and build better ties with the Silicon Valley donors and talent that evaded him during the primary.

    “Because the Biden campaign is the Biden campaign, what we are doing on the independent side matters a hell of a lot more than it would previously”
    What makes this all the more difficult is that Democrats have long struggled to coordinate their big-money spending like Republicans have, and that atomization has been exacerbated by the arrival of Silicon Valley money, whose hubristic entrepreneurs often prefer to do things their own way.

    In Silicon Valley’s new political moment, four billionaires in particular — LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt — have the most ambitious plans, according to Recode’s interviews with over 20 donors and operatives. The chess moves of this power set are instrumental to fulfilling Democrats’ — and much of Silicon Valley’s — four-year quest to oust Donald Trump.

    And yet each of these billionaires is moving their pieces with varying levels of secrecy, and often with minimal disclosure, scrutiny, or accountability.

    Donors being donors . . . egads . . .



    Anonymous Generosity: the Foundations Sponsoring Putin’s Re-Election






    One of the connected firms is the Russian Fish Company, once a major fish supplier in the Russian market. The company was once owned by Andrey Vorobyev, the current governor of the Moscow Region and an old acquaintance of one of the founders of United Russia — Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu. Vorobyev’s father had worked with Shoigu for many years.
    In early 2000, Andrey Vorobyev left the business to begin a career in politics, first becoming an advisor to Shoigu during the latter’s brief tenure as deputy prime minister. Vorobyev then headed the United Russia Support Foundation (the NFPR’s name before 2015).

    Joe Biden is weak, the lockdown is killing his campaign, it's not like he has much to say but stupid shit anyway, so it's a positive

    Trump will destroy him in a few twitter posts, like he did with Hillary

    Know nothing about racism? Really? You sanctimonious fool.

    Are you that thick? Aligned with a comedian? Where did I say that? I don't align with anybody. I do agree with Maher on many things. some comedians do hit the nail on the head. Much more so than many TV commentators.

    You must be one of the woke left. God help us all...

    Now son, go fuck yourself.

    That's the usual practice.
    Tolerance has a deeper political agenda.

    There Was A Pretty Loud Fart Noise During A Joe Biden Livestream
    Politicians, they say, can be full of hot air.
    May 27, 2020

    Fart Noise Heard During Joe Biden-Tom Wolf Livestream

    (Obviously a meddling, so the watchful media have edited it, also on Youtube - same procedure as with the N-word...)

    If I have to choose between two demented grampas, I’ll take the benign one and not the full blown belligerent idiot, Trump.

    In Melania‘s defense, she’s just supporting her husband. She knows Donny boy has lost it, but you’ve got to give her credit for not giving up.

    Youtube have taken down the video of the medical team experimenting with injecting disinfectants into a breathing apparatus to kill pathogens. The days after Trump made that comment the views skyrocketed and now its lost forever. Who knows they may get somewhere with it, but i doubt it will be in the USA after the media did that.
    Have you heard the latest about Hydroxychlorocyn? Remember Trump said he was using it for 5 days after coming in contact with a P+ person. That study the media was flaunting all over the place that it can kill you has been retracted, but you wont here that its been retracted on the usual mainstream media, because they are liars. I see this shit all the time it is mind boggling.

    DEMs could do far better than selecting Joe as their candidate but he will get my vote as unenthusiastically Hillary did last election. My enthusiasm will go up or maybe down depending on his VP choice.
