APPLE, TWITTER, GOOGLE, INSTAGRAM Collude to Defeat Trump…

There is no such thing as Pro-Trump free speech as Clinton corporate allies serve up a carefully curated view of the campaign

My dad always told me that conservative candidates have to work twice as hard as their liberal opponents to win elections because they’re fighting two opponents: the Democratic Party and the media.

The usual suspects from left-leaning major media outlets like The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN and even entertainment networks are doing everything in their power to ensure a Clinton victory. Look no further than to Wolf Blitzer mincing around and drinking wine at the Democratic convention, celebrating Hillary’s nomination. But the propaganda skewing this election runs much deeper than just the media: our iPhones, iPads, social media networks, Google and even video games are all in the tank for Hillary Clinton—and it’s chilling.

I began looking into how strong the bias and censorship runs in these forums after I did an interview on the pro-Trump podcast, MAGAPod. The show’s host, Mark Hammond, was disappointed Apple wouldn’t run his show without an “explicit” warning. Hammond’s podcast didn’t contain content that would be deemed explicit under Apple’s policy, and most other shows in the News & Politics category aren’t labeled as such.

On June 18, Hammond talked to Sandra, a representative from Apple. She explained that, since the description of his show is pro-Trump, his show is explicit in nature—because the subject matter is Donald Trump. So, an Apple employee concluded the Republican presidential candidate is explicit.

iTunes has dozens of podcasts discussing Osama Bin Laden and Adolf Hitler—none of which is marked explicit. I encouraged Hammond to contact Apple again, via email to their podcast support team. Within 48 hours he received a response from “Tim,” who informed Hammond that his podcast would be updated to “clean” within 24 hours.

Further digging on Apple revealed more evidence that the computer giant is feeding users pro-Hillary and anti-Trump propaganda.

Over the past year, Apple twice refused to publish a satirical Clinton Emailgate game, “Capitol HillAwry,” claiming it was “offensive” and “mean spirited” even though the game’s developer, John Matze, cited in communications with Apple that the game fits the standards of Apple’s own satire policy. Apple has, however, approved dozens of games poking fun at Donald Trump—including a game called “Dump Trump,” which depicts the GOP nominee as a giant turd.

On July 25, Breitbart exposed this blatant double standard and favoritism toward Clinton. A few days after the article was released, Apple caved and published Capitol HillAwry, 15 months after Matze’s first attempt to go live.

While it’s commendable that Apple resolved both situations, Trump supporters and conservative users should never have faced such biased treatment in the first place.

Around the same time I was a guest on MAGAPod, a friend complained to me about how biased his Apple News feed is against Trump. I set up an Apple News account on my iPhone.

First step: select an outlet. Fox News. Conservative. But my news feed? Liberal.

And if there are articles above the fold from more right-leaning sites? They paint Trump in a negative light and Hillary in a positive light. Of all the channels listed in the Apple News politics section, only two of the 16 arguably lean right—the rest are reliably left-wing.

This has, of course, been pointed out before, and anyone with an iPhone or iPad can go to Apple News to determine on his or her own if Apple is pushing leftist propaganda. Apple claims not to endorse candidates, but their actions suggest otherwise, and some of their executives—including CEO Tim Cook—actively support Clinton’s campaign. Buzzfeed recently obtained an invitation to a private $50,000-per-plate fundraiser Cook is hosting for Clinton with his Apple colleague, Lisa Jackson, at the end of this month.

Apple isn’t the only corporation doing Clinton’s bidding. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Clinton made a deal with Google and that the tech giant is “directly engaged” in her campaign. It’s been widely reported Clinton hired Eric Schmidt—chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google—to set up a tech company called The Groundwork. Assange claims this was to ensure Clinton had the “engineering talent to win the election.” He also pointed out that many members of Clinton’s staff have worked for Google, and some of her former employees now work at Google.

So it should come as no surprise that there have been multiple reports accusing Google of manipulating searches to bury negative stories about Clinton.SourceFed details how Google alters its auto-complete functions to paint Clinton in a positive light.

For example, when you type “Hillary Clinton cri” into other engines like Yahoo! or Bing, the most popular autofills are “Hillary Clinton criminal charges” but in Google it’s “Hillary Clinton crime reform.” Google denies they changed their algorithm to help Clinton, and insists the company does not favor any candidate. They also claim their algorithms don’t show predicted queries that are offensive or disparaging.

But Google has gotten into hot water on multiple occasions for connecting Trump to Adolf Hitler. In June, when users searched “when Hitler was born” it generated the expected information on Hitler but also an image of Trump. In July, searches for Trump’s book, Crippled America, returned images of Adolf Hitler’s manifesto Mein Kempf. Google has since fixed both—but again, why do these issues always conveniently disparage Trump and help Clinton?

Twitter is another culprit. The company has gotten a lot of slack for banning conservatives and Trump supporters such as Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos and, most recently, rapper Azealia Banks after she came out in support of Trump. Twitter has provided vague answers as to why conservative voices have been banned while they’ve allowed other users to call for the killing of cops.

Just yesterday, Buzzfeed revealed that the social media giant’s top executive personally protected the President from seeing critical messages last year. “In 2015, then-Twitter CEO Dick Costolo secretly ordered employees to filter out abusive and hateful replies to President Barack Obama.”

This year, Twitter isn’t just banning conservatives—the platform also changed its algorithms to promote Clinton while giving negative exposure to Trump.

The founders of some of the most popular pro-Trump Twitter handles—including @USAforTrump2016 and @WeNeedTrump—insist Twitter is censoring their content. They’ve pointed out that Twitter changes trending hashtags associated with negative tweets about Clinton (which has been reported before). On August 4, shortly after the hashtag “HillaryAccomplishment” began trending, it was taken over by anti-Clinton users, who used it to mention Benghazi or Emailgate. Eric Spracklen, @USAforTrump2016 founder, noticed the hashtag was quickly changed—pluralized to #HillarysAccomplishments.

“They take away the hashtag that has negative tweets for Clinton and replace it with something that doesn’t so the average person doesn’t see what was really trending,” Spracklen said. “This happens every day.”

Jack Murphy, founder of @WeNeedTrump, says followers complain they often aren’t able to retweet his pro-Trump tweets.

Instagram has also banned accounts that depict Clinton in a negative light. In June, a conservative comedy group called Toughen Up America was banned with no warning or explanation. Last week, the popular Australian-based graffiti artist, Lushsux, was banned from Instagram after he posted photos of a bikini-clad Clinton mural he painted.

“I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist with a tin foil hat, but the timing of the Hillary Clinton mural posting and the deletion that ensued can’t just be a coincidence,” he told the Daily Mail Australia. Lushsux has posted photos of way more graphic murals, including a topless Melania Trump and a naked Donald with his package in full sight. These images did not trigger any censorship from Instagram.

Facebook has a long history of shutting down pages and blocking conservative users while promoting progressive voices like Black Lives Matter activists. The problem became so transparent that Sen. John Thune sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asking him to explain their practices.

Facebook denies it discriminates against “any sources of ideological origin” and Zuckerberg did meet with conservatives in an attempt to resolve this issue. While some walked away from the meeting encouraged that Zuckerberg wants to repair their relationship, other prominent conservatives rejected the invitation as a publicity stunt. It should be noted that Facebook employees have donated more to Clinton than to any other candidate.

Many conservatives have come to expect this kind of thing from the mainstream media. CNN, which paints itself as the centrist antidote to right-leaning Fox News and left-leaning MSNBC, has actually been among the most disingenuous offenders during this cycle, fully earning its derisive nickname “Clinton News Network.” For example, as NewsBusters pointed out for just one day, “CNN set aside nearly half of its air time on Wednesday’s New Day to various recent controversies involving the Trump campaign — 1 hour, 24 minutes, and 18 seconds over three hours. By contrast, the program clearly didn’t think much of the Wall Street Journal‘s revelationthat the Obama administration secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran. John Berman gave a 27-second news brief to the report, but didn’t mention that the payment was sent on “an unmarked cargo plane.” New Day, therefore, devoted over 187 times more coverage to Trump than to the millions to Iran.”

Another favored CNN trick is to present a “balanced” panel comprised of two Republicans, two Democrats and a host, as they did on the afternoon of July 29, just to name one instance of a hundred. However, the Republican side always features one Trump supporter and one “Never Trump” Republican, with the host grilling the Trump Supporter—often a beleaguered Jeffrey Lord—in what amounts to a 4-on-1. So much for balance.

Right now, CNN has a story on its site called “Which Republicans oppose Trump and why?” There’s no corresponding story about Democrats who oppose Clinton, even though her underdog challenger in the primary lasted far longer and received far more votes than any of Trump’s Republican challengers.

No Republican willing to criticize Trump is too insignificant to merit coverage on CNN. When a minor Christie staffer announced on her personal Facebook that she’d be backing Hillary, she somehow merited a 1200 word story on CNN’s website and euphoric coverage on the air by Brooke Baldwin for “splitting with her party.”

So that’s the traditional media. But this new strand, where one cannot even search for alternative viewpoints amid technology companies who stand to benefit from the free-trade policies and eased immigration regulations of a Clinton presidence, represents a dangerous sea change. There’s absolutely no question the digital forums we use every day are censoring conservatives and favoring Clinton. You can’t simply scroll through photos on Instagram, look for a video game in the App Store or do a quick Google search without being fed anti-Trump and pro-Clinton propaganda.

These companies are engaging in activity that can quickly lead down a very dangerous slippery slope and this should concern all freedom-loving Americans—not just conservatives. If you don’t know when the election is, no problem! Just Google it and see for yourself what comes up…

Munich SHOOTER was a MUSLIM who lured children to their deaths on Facebook, Police probe fake ad for free food at massacre McDonald’s

shooter-munich-1

This is Merkel’s legacy. Her disastrous immigration policies have decimated Germany and the whole of Europe. Today’s attack has brought home to me what a total disaster European migrant policy has been.

The enemedia will claim “motive unknown,” but that’s only because the mass murderer was Muslim. If we know anything, it is the motive. The attacks are coming more and more frequently. We have to stop treating each one as a separate criminal act, and realize we’re in a war.

By Anthony Joseph and Patrick Lion and Alan Hall In Berlin For Mailonline, 22 July 2016

Police are investigating a fake Facebook advert which offered free food at the McDonald’s where a gunman killed the first of his nine victims.

Munich was in lockdown for a major police operation around the city’s Olympic Park, after the 18-year-old Iranian opened fire at the fast food restaurant, before targeting shoppers in a busy mall in the district of Moosach.

The killer’s body has been found half a mile from the scene after he reportedly turned the gun on himself. Police now believe he may have acted alone, after they initially went in search of three gunmen yesterday.

And at a press conference at 2.30am local time today, Munich Police President Hubertus Andrae confirmed the force were probing a Facebook page which was offering free food at the McDonald’s at the same time the gunman began his shooting spree.

The shooter has been identified as a dual nationality German-Iranian, who has been living in Munich for more than two years.

A total of 21 people were taken to hospital as a result of the incident – three are fighting for their lives in critical condition and 16 are still receiving medical treatment.

Terrified shoppers were seen running for their lives from the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre after hearing gunshots.

Witnesses said that the gunman screamed ‘I’m German’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’ before shooting at children.

Police gave a ‘cautious all clear’ early this morning, more than seven hours after the attack began and brought much of the city to a standstill as all public transit systems were shut down amid a massive manhunt.

Mr Andrae said: ‘The perpetrator was an 18-year-old German-Iranian from Munich. The motive or explanation for this crime is completely unclear.’

The shooter was not previously known to police and there was no evidence of any links to terrorist organizations, Andrae said.

He added: ‘The question of terrorism or a rampage is tied to motive, and we don’t know the motive. ‘We can’t question the suspect so this is all a little more difficult.’

A woman named Loretta said she was in the McDonald’s when the man with a gun came out of a bathroom and began shooting.

She told CNN: ‘I come out of the toilet and I hear like an alarm, boom, boom, boom. He’s killing the children. The children were sitting to eat. They can’t run.’

Loretta said she had been in the bathroom at the same time as the shooter, with her eight-year-old son. She said the man yelled: ‘Allahu Akbar!’

A huge manhunt was launched across the city, including snipers in helicopters and 2,300 officers from Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Last night, police said they believed there could have been up to three gunmen who were on the loose. They issued a warning to people, saying: ‘There are shooters on the run who are dangerous.’

Murat T described seeing ‘lifeless bodies’ in the restaurant when he went to look for his son Orhan’s friend.

Orhan said he heard gunshots while on the phone to his friend, before the call cut out. He said: ‘We no longer reach him. Not even his parents. He is like my brother.’

A video purporting to show the shooter, dressed in black, firing 20 shots has been posted on Twitter. The footage shows him outside the McDonald’s directly outside the shopping centre.

In unverified footage, a man with dark hair, wearing a black t-shirt and denim trousers, appears to take aim at people, including children, outside the McDonald’s restaurant near the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum metro station.

He raises his arms, apparently holding a shotgun, and appears to fire at people outside the restaurant, who can be seen running for cover.

The sound of multiple shots being fired can be heard as shoppers and passers-by run for cover. People were seen fleeing from the building in another video posted on social media.

In another video on social media a man can be heard yelling at suspect in the car park that he is a ‘w*****’ and an ‘a******e.’ And he yelled: ‘Put your gun down.’

The gunman, when he walks across the roof of the car park, shouts out: ‘I am a German!’

The man who is abusing him then shouts out; ‘You are a w*****!’ The gunman tells him to ‘shut your trap.’ Then he fires more shots and the rest of what is said is unintelligible.

Shooter: ‘Yeah what, I was born here.’

Balcony man: ‘Yeah and what the f**k you think you’re doing?’

Gunman: ‘I grew up here in the Hartz 4 (unemployment benefits in Germany) area.’

Balcony man and Shooter talk at same time.

Balcony man: ‘Yeah treatment is something for you’

Gunman: ‘I haven’t done anything here for (unintelligible) … ‘Please shut your mouth’

Balcony man: ‘You c**t you’

Balcony man to people nearby: ‘Hey, he’s on the upper floor here.’

The cameraman goes into cover as the gunman starts firing. Balcony man calls him a c***t again.

Balcony man: ‘They must have been s******g into your head’

Gunman: ‘They have not. They have not, that’s the thing. They have not.’

The area around the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre, in the district of Moosach, was sealed off as emergency services try to control the situation. Snipers in helicopters were circling the city from above in search of the killer.

‘Firearms are a huge problem in this particular incident. We urge people to stay indoors and help us with our work and I’m calling on media to help us carry out our jobs.

‘We’ve managed to evacuate people from inside and hopefully brought everyone to safety. There are people who have been traumatised by this and I can tell you they are in the double figures.

‘We have to treat this as some form of a terror attack as it is an attack with weapons but as to what is behind this we don’t know yet.

‘We are also watching these videos people have been showing but you must give me time to analyse these properly.’

Last night, Munich police tweeted: ‘We currently do not know where to find the perpetrators. Watch yourself and avoid to be the public’.

Despite reports on social media, Munich Fire Department said it was not aware of a separate shooting at the city’s Stachus central square

Munich Police said in a statement: ‘At around 5.50pm (local time) there were witnesses who called the police and said there was a shooting at the Hanauer Street.

‘The shooting moved from that street to the shopping centre. The witnesses said there were three different people with weapons.

‘At the moment no culprit has been arrested. The search is taking place at high speed.’

A second shooting was said to have taken place near Marienplatz subway station, which is just four miles from the Olympic Park area. But police could not confirm that was the case

She said she had just visited the shopping centre with her grandma and a cousin for an hour before the shooting started.

However, she was due to return to the centre with more members of her family when her mum and dad arrived.

‘When we went down to the street, we ran into another family and they were in shock,’ she told MailOnline.

‘They were scared and they told us not to go back to the shopping mall. After we were spoken to by the family, we went back upstairs to my grandma’s apartment – who lives about three minutes away from the shopping mall. We took in the family. They were so scared.

‘From the balcony we were able to witness about 50 people running towards our house seeking shelter. Sirens started to arrive and a helicopter appeared.’

‘Me and my family – we were saved. We are completely safe but there were still a lot of people running.’

‘God knows what would have happened to us if my family had decided to go that shopping mall half an hour later. We might not be alive now.’

Another said: ‘Many shots were fired, I can’t say how many but it’s been a lot.

‘All the people from outside came streaming into the store and I only saw one person on the ground who was so severely injured that he definitely didn’t survive.

‘We have no further information, we’re just staying in the back in the storage rooms. No police have approached us yet.’

Another worker, Lynn Stein, told CNN: ‘I was just going to buy something while my co-worker was still in the shop.

‘People started running. I went outside as well, more people were running outside. I think I heard more shots. Then it sounded like he went to the parking house next to the mall – several shots there.

‘I saw somebody lying on the floor, presumably dead and there’s a woman over them, crying.’

The shopping centre is next to the Munich Olympic stadium, where the Palestinian militant group Black September took 11 Israeli athletes hostage and eventually killed them during the 1972 Olympic Games.

Thamina Stoll, a university student in Munich, tweeted video of the scene showing people running.

‘Helicopter, sirens and people on the street #Munich #shooting #OEZ #München,’ she said.

‘At least 30 police cars on their way to #Munich #shoppingmall according to local radio station. Area around mall blocked by police.’

British nationals in Germany are being advised to comply with instructions from local authorities.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘We are urgently investigating an incident in Munich and stand ready to provide assistance to British Nationals.’

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson tweeted: ‘Deeply shocked & saddened by #Munich shootings. My thoughts are w/ the victims, their loved ones & all #Germany at this time.’

An American college student has revealed the harrowing scenes after she and her family were caught in the middle of the Munich shopping centre attack.

Thamina Stoll, 22, of Durham, North Carolina, who is in Munich on a summer internship, filmed people fleeing the shopping centre during the attacks from her grandma’s nearby apartment.

She told MailOnline that she had just visited the centre with her grandma and a cousin for an hour before the shooting started. 

However, she was returning to the centre with more members of her family including her mum and dad.

‘When we went down to the street, we ran into another family and they were in shock,’ she told MailOnline.

‘They were scared and they told us not to go back to the shopping mall.

‘After we were spoken to by the family, we went back upstairs to my grandma’s apartment – who lives about three minutes away from the shopping mall. 

‘We took in the family. They were so scared.

‘From the balcony we were able to witness about 50 people running towards our house seeking shelter. Sirens started to arrive and a helicopter appeared.’

Ms Stoll, who is studying at Duke University, said the family felt like the other family who warned them had saved their lives.

‘I feel very lucky because I had been there an hour before and I was just about to return,’ she said.

‘Me and my family – we were saved. We are completely safe but there were still a lot of people running.’

‘God knows what would have happened to us if my family had decided to go that shopping mall half an hour later. We might not be alive now.’

US President Barack Obama pledged support to Germany in the wake of the deadly shooting rampage, as officials said they were working to determine if any American citizens were affected.

Obama, speaking at a meeting with law enforcement officials, said: ‘Our hearts go out to those who may have been injured. It’s still an active situation, and Germany’s one of our closest allies, so we are going to pledge all the support that they may need in dealing with these circumstances.’

At the State Department, spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said US officials were working with local authorities to determine if any US citizens were affected by the incident.

POLICE RAID 60 HOMES OVER FACEBOOK POSTS

Virginia Hale for Breitbart reports German Police raided the homes of 60 people suspected of writing ‘hate’ speech on social media in Germany. Coordinated by the Federal Criminal Police (BKA), the operation saw officers from 25 departments search across 14 states.

Shame on Germany and the police. Words are not action.
scandalasdog

This is what the police forces across the EU are doing, police peoples thoughts. Easy police work no investigation or research needed just find out the IP address raid the premises and say that justifies their salary for today, and its totally worth all them resources. Just like journalism where they tap peoples phones for stories, no investigation no research just lazy excuse for being “seen” to do something. Standards are dropping and with that drop in standards the slippery slope to being defunct accelerates. But the true worry is this raiding peoples homes because of opinions the establishment deem “problematic”, so who decides what is “problematic”?

Apparantly the reason for those raids was that in the Facebook group description they wrote: “The migrants rape, steal and so on…” Kind of like Trump said about the Mexican migrants. Only in Germany you get raided and brought in front of a judge. Germany is getting more and more like under Adolf Hitler, only directed towards Germans themselves this time.

Not seeing the post that were made, it’s hard to judge. The posts made by Black Lives Maters in this country would have surly been dealt with if our President wasn’t a Muslim.

facebook is controlled by Jew Zuckerberg. Naturally Zuckerberg is going to rat on Germans. Zuckerberg is the dumb Jew who stole the idea of Facebook from the non-Jew Winklevoss brothers. Stay away from Facebook if you don’t want Jews to rat you out to the government.

Zuckerberg, Gates Launch Anti-Trump Website

Facebook will benefit from illegal immigration

JULY 19, 2016

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, and Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, have teamed up to launch a website targeting Donald Trump.

*
“Mark Zuckerberg-backed FWD.us is escalating its attacks on Donald Trump’s immigration policies as the candidate prepares to accept the Republican party’s presidential nomination in Cleveland,” Recode reported on Monday.

*
Bill Gates is also a founder of FWD.us.

*
The site will provide propaganda in favor of illegal immigration. Todd Schulte, of FWD.us president, told Recode Trump365 will serve as a “messaging hub” where supporters can download graphics to post on Twitter and Facebook as part of an effort to “amplify the message” and defeat Trump.

“Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly promised that if he is elected he will mass deport 11.3 million undocumented immigrants plus an additional 4.5 million children with U.S. citizenship,” the website claims.

*
The Trump campaign website does not advocate mass deportation. It does, however, call for deporting criminals.

*
“All criminal aliens must be returned to their home countries, a process which can be aided by canceling any visas to foreign countries which will not accept their own criminals, and making it a separate and additional crime to commit an offense while here illegally,” the site explains.

*
It should be noted that Zuckerberg’s support for “comprehensive immigration reform” has an upside for the tech industry. He supports S.744, legislation that would jack up the annual cap on H-1B nonimmigrant (temporary) guest workers from 65,000 to 180,000 and would eliminate the ceiling on green cards for foreign STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workers. So-called guest workers are routinely paid less than their American counterparts.

*
“The obstacle to passing a stand-alone STEM bill is that the Democratic Party will only agree to vote for it if it is combined with blanket amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens,” notes the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “This is the real motivation guiding Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘selfless’ pursuit of comprehensive immigration reform.”

Louisiana Police Chief FIRED For THIS Comment About Obama’s War on Cops!

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 11.55.04 AM

A Louisiana police lost his job after taking to Facebook to blast Obama for not addressing the problem with police officers getting killed across the country.

The Jonesville Town Council demanded Police Chief Skylar Dore’s resignation after the comments were discovered as being racially inflammatory, according to The Natchez Democrat.

The Police Chief’s Facebook post said…

“Hey Mr. (expletive) president when are you going to grow a (expletive) pair. And tell it like it is. These are terrorist. That have declared (expletive) war on my brother. (White police officers) enough is enough,” Chief Dore ranted.

“How many police officers have to die trying to protect the citizens of this country. Any other president would have declared full on war on this group. Since when in our (expletive) history do we stand idle to the ambush murders of law enforcement. It has to STOP NOW!!!!!”

Dore has since apologized for making the comments and said he was just emotional at the time of such a sad loss during the Baton Rouge shootings. However, it didn’t matter, as Dore was still asked to resign

“I think at this time Chief Dore, we will now ask you for you resign from your duties. That’s what I’m recommending to the board,” Mayor of Jonesville said, according to KNOE.

The post has been removed from Facebook, but local news published the redacted image they captured…

Facebook Censoring Posts on Turkey Coup

would someone please destroy the Facebook servers?!
chuckles barnett

They are censoring it because they don’t want anyone else getting ideas about overthrowing their governments, like the US should. We are on the cusp of WW3 and Martial law as per NWO plans.
Thomas Kinky Schiller

news say that Erdogan is safe and the coups didn t work out (yet). though I am convinced that sooner or later there will be a coup. and “Guelen” lost the fight against Erdogan long time ago and is of no account.
Jane Gerrard

Erogan may be safe where he is but If the army is united and not fighting themselves, which seems to be the case, they will gain control of all tactical locations within a day or two and the job will be done.
