If you saw me rageposting here last night about the egregious whitewashing of FBI/DHS/Capitol Police failures in the report, this is the more coherent version: https://www.lawfareblog.com/dangerous-omission-jan-6-committees-report-summary
@icymi_law was built to help with discovery in folks' timelines (fleshing out sparse feeds, and on the other end, helping surface quality content amid an ocean of posts). Enough folks asked for a digest, however, that I figured it was worth making.
We've started a series of legal interventions focused on Tufton Street cronyism: undisclosed donors, misinformation, astro-turfing, opacity and lobbying 🧐👀
If you never explored a slot canyon, give Antelope Canyon in Page, #Arizona a try. The canyon is located on #Navajo land and you need to set up a tour with one of their fantastic tour guides. As you meander through the base of the #canyon, you can see the the light coming in through the top and bouncing off the rock walls creating mesmerizing light and shadow. The rocks also form different shapes that let your imagination run wild.
Canada Starts Process to forfeit Assets of a Russian Oligarch. The Funds Will Support Ukraine.
Canada is starting the first process to pursue the forfeiture of assets from a sanctioned Russian oligarch: Roman Abramovich's $26 million in assets from Granite Capital Holdings Ltd.
If forfeited, the $26 million will be able to be used for the reconstruction of Ukraine and compensation to victims of the Putin regime’s illegal and unjustifiable invasion.
It's a start.
Neben den von Reichsbürger*innen und Verschwörungsglauben geprägten Corona-Protesten ging die Gefahr im Saarland 2022 von der Priesterbruderschaft St. Pius X und den Hammerskins aus.
When a billionaire does something which appears evil, damaging or corrupt, please don't let your first assumptions be that he doesn't understand what he is doing, or that he is immature, or that he is incompetent.

It’s that time of year where some find it difficult. Perhaps it brings back memories of a lost loved-one, a relationship that didn’t work out, money or even a situation that’s affecting you at work. It’s okay to not be okay.
I hope you have a great start to the week, but if you’re not, there’s always someone willing to listen.
#JohnMastodon is proof that things *CAN* go viral here on Mastodon, but the key is that *YOU* are the algorithm. The reason that the John Mastodon meme showed up on other people's timelines is because so many users boosted the posts.
The lesson here is: please don't just favourite something if you really enjoyed it; BOOST it so that other people can enjoy it, too! This is the only reason why I bother to create as large a social graph as I can on Mastodon—to act as an amplifier. You can, too!❤️😉
