However, some of America’s spies are deciding that that’s not enough. For reasons of misguided righteousness or partisan hatred, they’ve taken it upon themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner. They have prosecuted their case in the court of public opinion, with likeminded media outlets such as CNN , The New York Times , and the Washington Post serving as court stenographers. Elected by no one, responsible only to each other, these spies have determined that Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Days ago, they delivered their verdict. According to one intelligence official, the president “ will die in jail.” John Schindler, the intel officer in question, is a close associate of Aaron Weisburd . Weisburd and Schindler are the originators of the Russian election influence meme. Weisburd is also the originator of the propornot list .

Mission accomplished. The problem is that as the term "fake news" is endlessly repeated, its use and meaning changes and institutions such as parliament and Facebook can't keep up. Merely a month ago, "fake news" meant websites designed to look like a legitimate news source but filled with made-up stories intended as clickbait. Now it has become more than that. Since his election, Trump has appropriated the #fakenews meme for his own ends. He has taken the weapons of the media and used their post-truth accusations against them. Remember, crying "fake news" was originally a means of belittling Trump. Now he tweets the term on a daily basis to question the legitimacy of the very people who once questioned his. Fake news as a charge against the legitimate press is a much more dangerous tool in Trump's Tweet-busy hands than it ever was when it was just clickbait.

With a perfectly corny, safely politically neutral ad about politics, undecided voter Ken Bone is still squeezing out the last drops of internet fame. Bone, in case you forgot, was the man who shot to internet celeb status during the second presidential debate last fall. Dressed in a red zip-up cardigan , he asked a friendly middle-of-the-road question about energy policy amid a frankly nasty political climate. That was enough for him to be quickly embraced as the much-needed "can't we all just get along" meme of the moment. SEE ALSO: 9 people the internet made famous in 2016 His fleeting fame also came with some less-than-savory discoveries about his internet past . Nonetheless, his image and a Twitter following of 224,000 have managed to persist. Read more... More about Meme , Presidential Election , Politics , Ken Bone , and Social Media

President Trump’s statement is long overdue and doesnt begin to scratch the surface of what needs to be done.” Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, also said Trump’s efforts were too little and too late. “The President’s sudden acknowledgment of Anti-Semitism is a Band-Aid on the cancer of Anti-Semitism that has infected his own Administration,” Goldstein said in a statement. Trump throughout the campaign battled allegations of anti-Semitic influences on his operation, including from Steve Bannon, his campaign chairman who had run the alt-right news outlet Breitbart. He also failed to quickly disavow the endorsement of white supremacist David Duke, and many of his supporters pushed anti-Semitic imagery, including Pepe the Frog, a popular internet meme among white nationalists. Trump’s condemnation on Tuesday came hours after former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had called on him to speak out against anti-Semitic violence after side-stepping it last week.

We all know how thin-skinned our Commander-in-Chief can be so it's probably no surprised to anyone that CNN is reporting the Trump Organization has bought up 3,643 website domains. SEE ALSO: New Tiny Trumps' meme has flooded the internet big time That a very, very famous person would buy website domains relating to his name is hardly shocking but the point here is the breadth 3,643!!! and relative hilarity of some of the domains that CNN uncovered, snatched up by Trump's company over the years. Of course the company bought up the foreboding TrumpEmpire.com out from under a squatter who let the registration lapse. But the company also bought out TrumpFraud.org and TrumpScam.com , according to CNN. Read more... More about Business , Donald Trump , Business , and Politics

He is a huge loss not just to Russia but to many other countries struggling to free themselves of unipolar dominance as well as many activists (such as myself) who hold the same views. ~ Alan Bailey He worked in a constructive manner for peace without falling into compromise. A hero ~ Lionel Pat Going into a spiralling depression since I woke up this morning. I know I'll recover... but Churkin's death was a hard blow. It isn't like he's irreplaceable, of course, nobody is or should be, not in a world where we're all mortal. But he was a wonderful person with a savagely mordant sense of humour. I especially loved his take down of the crap spewed by Samantha Powers. I doubt his replacement will be of the same calibre. ~ Bill Purkayastha La seule chose que l'on apprend d'un mort en cas de guerre c'est qu'il y a un combattant en moins mais deux plus forts: soi-même et la colère.

" But The Guardian says that "questions remain over whether fan channels are viable businesses or just the occasional source of viral content". Attempts to monetise similar channels at other clubs have had had mixed success. What is undeniable is that the channel does produce epic moments for fans of any stripe, whether they agree with the sentiment or just enjoy watching emotional football fans losing their rag. It has also spawned several footballing meme's including the "net s pend" man and an epic meltdown from supporter Claude . The latest, extremely explicit, rant to go viral came unsurprisingly in the wake of the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich courtesy of fan 'Troopz' who declared, not for the first time, that Wenger should leave.

The world had already been watching Britney Spears unravel for years when she walked into a hair salon in Tarzana, California, a decade ago and shaved her head. Days later, a bald Spears attacked a photographers car with an umbrella while at a gas station before speeding away. Photos from these incidents have become lasting reminders of Spears downward spiral, and even spawned an inspirational meme declaring, If Britney can make it through 2007, then I can make it through today. Its a moment in pop culture history thats seared into the memories of anyone who even remotely followed celebrity culture in the aughts. But in the context of Spears overall breakdown, this event wasnt even the rock bottom that would lead to a hospital stay and her current conservatorship. While we associate haircuts in pop culture with positive outcomes a post-breakup fresh start, a makeover the drastic act of shaving ones own head takes on a different meaning .
