White supremacist website Daily Stormer has a new home — Russia

Published

on

The neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer was kicked off of GoDaddy, despite the CEO’s right-leaning bent, and prevented from registering on Google, but now the website has found a home using a country code for domains available in Russia.

Wendy Siegelman‏ of Medium noted the change on Twitter Wednesday.

The change of the domain doesn’t necessarily mean that it is hosted on a Russian server, but the domain was purchased through a third party vendor that can register domains using country codes.

There were also allegations that surfaced that the social justice hacker group Anonymous potentially hacked the site, but the reports have not been confirmed.

The Daily Stormer site drew fire after encouraging Nazis to protest at the funeral of Heather Heyer, who was killed when a car rammed a crowd of people at the rally.

Published

For many Americans, the idea of the president tasking his son-in-law with solving national, even international, crises, seems problematic, if not absurd. But it happened once before and turned out to be the kind of “great success story” our current first family wants us to believe in again. Slightly over a century ago, as the US mobilized for the First World War, the nation faced devastating breakdowns of its financial and transport systems. In response, President Woodrow Wilson leaned heavily on his talented and experienced Treasury Secretary, William McAdoo, who just happened to be his son-in-law. Looking back at this episode tells us a lot about what makes for successful emergency management at the highest levels of government.

Here are 7 ways Donald Trump is just like Henry Ford — and why that’s not good for American democracy

Published

on

On May 21, speaking at the Ford Motor Company’s Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Donald Trump paid his latest homage to Henry Ford, lauding the family’s “good bloodlines” with Ford’s great grandson sitting in the front row.
