This article is about the history of police infiltration of leftist groups in the UK, but we see enough in US news to know it happens in the US, too, and has been happening for years.

I'm not really sure where to put this article.  The guy is a POS, but his reach atm is fairly restricted.

Clayton is a former Texas board of education member.  He may or may not be running for that office again this year.  As well as random twitter-drivebys harrassing non-white high school students celebrating their admission to ivy league universities, he's repeatedly gone after David Hogg and the Margery Douglass school survivors as a whole.

He falls into a weird private citizen category right now, which is maybe why his tweets haven't drawn more attention.

He'll take credit

Maybe if you'd been a Russian troll this wouldn't have happened.  You're supposed to steal identities, not create obviously fake ones.

Yeah, it's resurfaced.  May or may not be relevant, I guess.

I guess I'll stay away from tv news for a couple days.  Even msnbc usually gets happy and bubbly about missile strikes.

Facebook won't say if he had access to the CA data or if he's been told to delete it.

The only positive I really see to all this is that the talk about Zuckerberg thinking about a run in 2020 has completely dried up.

Legislation introduced in California to change the police use of force standard from "reasonable" to "necessary" force.

people are losing their minds over this in red counties.

Trump plans to send the military to guard the border until he gets his fence.

e have very bad laws for our border, and we are going to be doing some things -- I've been speaking with General Mattis -- we're going to be doing things militarily," Mr. Trump said at the White House, seated beside the defense secretary at a meeting with visiting leaders of Baltic nations. "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military. That's a big step. We really haven't done that before, or certainly not very much before."

Obama and Bush both sent national guard troops to the border.

Is it crazy that I think this could be an improvement over having ICE/CBP patrolling the border in terms of lives lost and human suffering?
