Tech veterans have come to the DNC building for challenges but not for big salaries. "We've all taken pay cuts from what industry would have paid," said Krikorian, an MIT-trained engineer and veteran of Uber who is the chief technology officer for the DNC, the party's governing body. read more


"Why do you work for a murderer?," asked the Post's long-time Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt, addressing unnamed hypothetical Washington luminaries who continue to take money to do work for the despots in Riyadh, particularly Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, or "MbS" as he has been affectionately known in the western press. Hiatt urged these hypothetical figures to engage in serious self-reflection: "Can I possibly work for such a regime, and still look at myself in the mirror each morning?" That, said Hiatt, "is the question that we, as a nation, must ask ourselves now." read more

When Republican senator Susan Collins joined 49 of her colleagues to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, critics pledged to defeat her in the next election. Indeed, advocates who oppose Kavanaugh raised millions in contributions that would be released to her next opponent if she dared to vote for his confirmation. Faculty and alumni of St. Lawrence University, however, are not satisfied in changing her future. They want to rewrite part of her past. In a raw act of retaliation, they are demanding that the college rescind an honorary degree awarded to Collins in 2017. Just one year ago, Collins was honored for her independent thinking and integrity, but now professors and graduates want her stripped of the degree for exercising such values in opposition to their own views. For exercising such independence, she is now denounced as lacking "integrity and commitment" to justice.

Chaos erupts as caravan reaches Mexico border - www.cnn.com

Tapachula, Mexico (CNN)A chaotic scene unfolded as a massive caravan of Honduran migrants reached the Guatemala-Mexico border Friday.

A surge of migrants broke through a steel fence that had been padlocked shut. Mexican police in riot gear set off smoke canisters and pushed them back.
Hundreds of Mexican Federal Police sealed the border as drones and helicopters hovered above the crowd.
Mexican authorities later opened the gates and allowed about 15 women and children through.

"Migrants in the group told CNN en Español they were bound for the United States, seeking work and fleeing political corruption and violence"


"seeking work" - all that awaits is slave wages with no worker protections

"and fleeing political corruption and violence" - they will not find peace in the US from political corruption or violence
