Overnight Open Thread (30 Jul 2016)

The two giant reasons the IRS is investigating the Clinton Foundation. The investigation won't be complete before the election and in the end, I'm sure they'll trot out the Hillary Defense and say no reasonable prosecutor would file charges. Kabuki theater.


Hollywood

Luc Besson guilty of plagiarizing Escape From New York, will pay $500K to John Carpenter.

Heh. Chinese Film The Great Wall bashed for starring white man Matt Damon. Reap what you sow Hollywood.

Car Accident of the Day

Oh sure, blame the GPS when we all know it was Pokemon Go. Car nearly ends up vertical after driver swerves ferociously in response to GPS.

Sweet Set Up

Hackers

Heh. Clinton campaign also hacked in attacks on Democrats. I'm going to put on my tin foil hat now and say this will end up being a false flag op in order to put the blame on Trump after his statement earlier this week. They desperately want to say that he is inciting hackers to hack on his behalf.

Iowa Class Battleship vs Bismarck Class

Nazi Germany's Battleship Bismarck vs America's Iowa class. Who wins?

Goalie Pains

SR-71

World's fastest jet crew reunited with the SR-71 Blackbird.

Social Media

Well, they do advocate for politicians that rail against this sort of thing. Facebook could get hit with $3B to $5B tax bill.

Oh Twitter. Evidently some speech is more free than others. Conservative writer Kassy Dillon suspended from Twitter for repeating Leslie Jones.

Juxtaposition of the Day

FBI chief warns 'Terrorist diaspora' will come to the West.

And then this. Top Homeland Security Dem: We should 'not close our borders'.
