The United States Securities and Exchange Commision announced it was filing charges of "Massive Fraud" against Elizabeth Holmes and her Initial Coin Offering, Theranos Labs. Curiously the press release revelaing charges also announced that a settlement has already been agreed to (archived). Also curiously absent from mainstream pantsuit coverage of the charges is the scent of corruption allowing the well connected pantsuits to escape with this sweetheart settlement:
Theranos and Holmes have agreed to settle the fraud charges levied against them. Holmes agreed to pay a $500,000 penalty, be barred from serving as an officer or director of a public company for 10 years, return the remaining 18.9 million shares that she obtained during the fraud, and relinquish her voting control of Theranos by converting her super-majority Theranos Class B Common shares to Class A Common shares. Due to the company’s liquidation preference, if Theranos is acquired or is otherwise liquidated, Holmes would not profit from her ownership until – assuming redemption of certain warrants – over $750 million is returned to defrauded investors and other preferred shareholders. The settlements with Theranos and Holmes are subject to court approval. Theranos and Holmes neither admitted nor denied the allegations in the SEC’s complaint.
Following last month's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia at the hands of antifa terrorists another leftist group is escalating its nuisance presence. A group of neo-Maoist cultural revolutionaries advocating for an agenda authored by a group calling itself "the Black Student Alliance" but which the neo-Moaists calling themselves "the Black Student Alliance" insist was not actually them, vandalized a statute of third United States President and University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson.
The unnamed neo-Maoists <sarcasm>who surely weren't the named nao-Maoists</sarcasm> covered the statue in a black shroud and placed signs alleging the dead polymath is "racist" and "rapist" [sic]. Today's president of the university founded by Jefferson, a different kind of cultural Marxist calling itself Teresa A. Sullivan offered a number of utterances which included:
I strongly disagree with the protestors’ decision to cover the Jefferson statue. I also recognize the rights of those present at the protest to express their emotions and opinions regarding the recent horrific events that occurred on our Grounds and in Charlottesville…
however, he was also a slave owner… The University1 has acknowledged its controversial history and we continue to learn from it through open dialogue and civil discourse.
Secretarial skills and consistently passing "inspection" are more valued in the Incan US Department of Defense than competence, job skills, or actual human functional abilities
Naval Officers including "Surface Warfare Officers" were frequently taken out of maritime service in order to provide tours of administrative and secretarial support to land forces in the ongoing Union wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan. Selections for these tours was looked upon favourably in promotion boards because "interdisciplinary" is a buzzword.
Fourteen years after the US Navy replaced their basic Surface Warfare Course with a CD-ROM boxed set, the longest experiment in computer disk based instructional courses is reaching its apex as graduates of the CD-ROM course are beginning to assume command positions. Pence in our time.
In an op ed, The New York Times is asserting that American corporations, have become the "moral" voice of the United States (archived). These nominally private socialist extensions of the leftist Hussein Bahamas flavored pantsuit USG in exile have become more overtly political since Hussein Bahamas was deposed by elected US President Donald Trump.
These corporations including McDonalds, Walmart, and Microsoft have historically had a symbiotic relationship with the socialist USG with each feeding the other in a cycle that grows more Inca while making any quality of life far more difficult to achieve in the United Soviet of America.
Austrian Transport Minister Joerg Leichtfried announced today that a number of car manufacturers have signed the papers to impose software changes on 600,000 diesel vehicles which would lessen their drivability. Despite the fact of these vehicles already having been sold, the manufacturers decided that fucking their customers over by retroactively making the cars shittier in order to satisfy Austrian Transport Minister Joerg Leichtfried (WOT:nonperson) was apparently an acceptable course of action.
Violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia as the city government and local police conspired with Antifa terrorists to cancel a rally promoting understanding, tolerance, and unity among American conservatives and instead bake a riot. Decisions made by Charlottesville mayor Michael Singer (WOT:nonperson), Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (WOT:nonperson), and the Charlottesville Police Department (WOT:nonpeople) turned a planned peaceful assembly into a mass casualty incident with fatalities.
The planned event dubbed "United the Right" had already been subject to overt leftist opposition since its announcement was granted an assembly permit and police protection only after a court ordered the City of Charlottesville to accommodate the American public's right to assemble in public spaces.
On the morning of the event Charlottesville police allowed Antifa terrorists to assault event attendees with excrement and chemical weapons as they travelled to the reserved park space. The approved event plans which called for physical separation between attendees of the conservative unity event and "protesters" were not implemented.1
Then minutes before the event could begin and after the crowd had assembled, police declared an unlawful assembly, withdrew to the outside of the crowd and kettled the conservative event attendees and Antifa terrorist together. The result was an escalation of violence that "no one could have predicted".
During the brawl, where it appears red blooded American conservatives were happy to contain their fight to engaging Antifa aggressors, a number of Antifa terrorists began spreading their violent outburst. They encircled a passing motorist in his vehicle and attacked the 20 year old motorist, attempting to remove him from his car. This lead to the motorist's Dodge Challenger2 colliding with a collection of Antifa bodies in an apparent attempt to escape. The motorist has been detained on murder charges by Charlottesville police.
News is emerging that Y Combinator darling Airbnb has begun firing customers for supporting particular political creeds. In typically SillyCon Valley hypocritical fashion, the leftist provacateurs masquerading as a "business startup" are pointing to their "Community Commitment"1 which demands the platform's users
accept people regardless of race, religion, national origin and other identifiers
The leader of the legacy Senate GOP, Mitch McConnell, is trying to console America in the wake of his Senate's failure to get on the Trump train by offering "At least Hillary Clinton isn't president". This comes as McConnell allowed his Senate, which pretends to share a political party with the President, to meet "Pro Forma" through their August recess denying elected President Donald Trump the ability to fill vacancies through uncontested 'recess appointments'. The 2018 Midterm election is only 15 months away, tick tock.
