Millions menaced as ransomware-smuggling ads pollute top websites

Top-flight US online publishers are serving up adverts that attempt to install ransomware and other malware on victims' PCs.

Websites visited by millions of people daily – msn.com, nytimes.com, aol.com, nfl.com, theweathernetwork.com, thehill.com, zerohedge.com and more – are accidentally pushing out booby-trapped adverts via ad networks, warn infosec researchers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And this right after the UK Culture Minister advocated government ban ad-blockers!

And once again, the not-as-mighty-as-they-like-to-pretend NSA, always eager to viol;ate the 4th Amendment and spy on law abiding citizens, is proving to be very "limp" when it comes to real computer criminals.

Israel’s military and domestic intelligence agency wasted no time implementing a decision by the cabinet last Thursday to sharply intensify the crackdown on Palestinian media.

Congressman calls on bankers to ‘neuter’ Elizabeth Warren — the ‘Darth Vader’ of Wall Street

Senior House Financial Services Committee member, Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) told a conference of bankers Wednesday morning that they needed to “find a way to neuter” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, according to Politico. Luetkemeyer was at an American Bankers Association conference in Washington when he made the remark, also calling Warren “the Darth Vader of the financial services world.”

According to Allied Progress, Luetkemeyer is an old friend to the banking and predatory lending industry, receiving more than $1 million in campaign donations from the industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So how, precisely, would Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer have Senator Warren "neutered"?!?

Funding a candidate with resources so intense that Warren could not possibly win another election?!?

Or, perhaps, did he have something more deadly in mind, let's say an assassination made to look like a legitimate "accident"?!?

It wouldn't be the first time something like that has happened in our rapidly "ripening" banana republic of the United States of America.

Senator Warren, I would strongly suggest you start wearing Kevlar undies, coupled with driving a car which has no computer to be hijacked.

I respect her consistent work to keep US citizens from getting exploited, even if we agree to disagree on some fundamental policy issues.

Homeless “Defender of Constitutional Rights” Unable to Pay $100 Marijuana Charge, Dies in Jail

By Matt Agorist

Last week, police, in their efforts to keep the world safe from a dangerous PLANT, arrested Jeffrey Pendleton for possessing a small amount of cannabis.

He was then locked in a cage last Wednesday after a Nashua District Court judge had set his bail at $100 cash. Unable to pay his extortion fee for possessing a plant that is legal in some form in 23 states, Pendleton, 26, was found dead in his cell five days later at 2:45 on Sunday...

In the final days of the 20th century, a North Wales psychiatrist named David Healy conducted a curious study, and with more than a curious result. Twenty volunteers with no history of psychiatric problems were recruited, half of whom were given the drug Zoloft, an antidepressant from the Prozac family of drugs known as the SSRIS, or “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.” The other half were given an antidepressant that, unlike Zoloft and Prozac, does not selectively target the brain chemical serotonin. Each group took their respective drug for two weeks and then, shortly thereafter, switched to the other.

Healy had designed his “healthy volunteer study” to compare the psychological experience of being on a serotonin antidepressant versus a non-serotonin antidepressant, but before he knew it, two of his volunteers became dangerously agitated and suicidal. Both were taking the SSRI drug.

The Fed's Credibility Question Won't Go Away

"Does the Fed have a credibility problem?"

That was the first question posed to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen at Wednesday's press conference following the central bank's decision to leave monetary policy unchanged, and its signal that instead of the four rate increases it anticipated implementing this year, there will be just two.

Forward guidance, remember, was supposed to give businesses and consumers a reliable feel for where borrowing costs are headed. Increasingly, though, central banks, in the argot of financial markets, are becoming price takers rather than price makers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Federal Reserve, indeed all Private Central Banks, will have a credibility problem as long as they refuse to acknowledge that their system, by design, produces more debt than money with which to pay that debt, in order to reduce the world population into permanent debt-slavery and transfer all the real wealth of the planet into their pockets.

ALERT: Major websites hit by dangerous “malvertising” ransomware. Pay up, or you don’t get into your files!

The New York Times, BBC, and some other major websites were hit by dangerous ads called “malvertising” ransomware.

It could infect your computer just by visiting the site. You do not even have to click on the ads.

Surfing the net may put your computer hostage and demand you pay up.

If you do not, you will not be able to get into your files.

The attack on the media sites was delivered through multiple ad networks, and it targeted security holes in out-of-date versions of Silverlight, Flash and other software, according to the researchers.

The ransomware didn’t require visitors to the websites to interact with the ads, according to Malwarebytes Senior Security Researcher Jerome Segura, and it was aimed at visitors with outdated programs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And once again the NSA is shown to the world as being rather "limp" in the face of these cyber-criminals.

Bioprinting makes it possible for scientists to make organs for transplants in a lab; however, it is a process that is marred by technical difficulties. Whether inside or outside of the human body, 3D printed cells require a complex system of nutrition or they die.

Now, a team of researchers from Harvard has published a paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that reveals a method for bioprinting stronger structures that solves some of these problems. Ultimately, the team has managed to fabricate tissue that lives for an extended period and is 10 times stronger.

“This latest work extends the capabilities of our multi-material bioprinting platform to thick human tissues, bringing us one step closer to creating architectures for tissue repair and regeneration,” says Jennifer A. Lewis., senior author on the study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an amazing leap forward, and congrats to the Harvard scientists who made this happen.

'Dial one if you know a Jew dating an Arab': Shocking Israeli campaign group set up 'hotline' to inform on 'traitors diluting the Jewish race' - and tried to split up model Bar Rafaeli and Leo DiCaprio 

Racist extremists who set up a 'hotline' to inform on Jews in a relationship with 'Arabs' and who targeted Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg are openly peddling hate and violence - but the Israeli government won't act.

Lehava, a radical fringe group in Israel, hunts down people sleeping with 'goys' - or non-Jews '- then 'persuades' them to separate, attacks Christians as 'vampires' and 'bloodsuckers' and is justifying attacks on churches using the Bible.

It accused supermodel Bar Rafaeli of 'diluting the Jewish race' if she did not split up Leonardo DiCaprio and has faced calls to be banned by the Pope.

Yet despite being under investigation for four years, the hate-filled campaigners operate in the central square of Jerusalem where they openly incite violence every Thursday night, the eve of the Israeli weekend.

And leader Benzi Gopstein boasted to MailOnline that he receives ten calls a day from Jewish people informing on friends who are dating non-Jews.

Brownshirts & Republican Wimps

As news outlets have reported, Friday’s disruption at the University of Illinois’s Chicago auditorium was a preplanned assault.

Behind it were the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Hispanics hoisting Mexican flags and cop-haters carrying filthy signs to show their contempt for police.

People for Bernie, a pro-Sanders outfit, tweeted, “[This] wasn’t just luck. It took organizers from dozens of organizations and thousands of people to pull off. Great work.”

Now, Sanders did not order this assault on the civil rights of Trump supporters. But MoveOn.org has endorsed him and “Bernie” signs and T-shirts were everywhere among the disrupters. Hence, he has a duty to disavow this conduct and those who engaged in it.

If Sanders refuses, he condones it, and is morally complicit.

Can one imagine how the media would pile on Trump if working-class white males in Trump T-shirts invaded a Hillary Clinton rally and shut it down?

Presidents Are Selected by Blood & Banksters

This process of maintaining the lineage of handpicked puppets is the ultimate driving force behind history. Such an assertion begs to define the forces that have a say in narrowing the field of competing contenders. Back in the days of kingship, a direct bloodline was paramount to claim primacy. Today, the concave of mercantile money changers fill the role of bishops and clergy selling salvation in the belief that eternal reward is the only escape from temporal austerity. The Banksters are the gatekeepers of the modern castle keep.

Now the transition from ecclesiastical authority to fiat money dominance is virtually complete. Ellen Brown in How America Became an Oligarchy identifies the moment when the Banksters became supreme.

The Clintons’ $93 Million Romance with Wall Street: a Catastrophe for Working Families, African-Americans, and Latinos

For 24 years Bill and Hillary Clinton have courted Wall Street money with notable success. During that time the New York banks contributed:

*$2.13 million to Hillary Clinton’s senatorial campaign in 2002.

*$6.02 million for her re-election in 2006.

*$14.61 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008.

*$21.42 million to her 2016 campaign.

Loose lugs lose elections: Are the wheels falling off Hillary Clinton’s campaign car?

Just when things were going smoothly for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the people started voting, and that’s when everyone began to notice that the wheels on her campaign car were wobbling.

The former US Secretary of State began 2016 with $100 million in her campaign coffers: a feat bested only by former Presidential candidate Jeb Bush who reached that unprecedented Presidential campaign fundraising mark much earlier. Jeb has since dropped out of the race. Is Secretary Clinton headed for the same ignominious fate?

Encrypted email provider ProtonMail opens to public, adds Android and iOS apps

ProtonMail, the Swiss provider of an end-to-end encrypted email service, announced Thursday that it was exiting beta and opening registrations to the general public. Additionally, the company announced free mobile apps for both Android and iOS.

Encryption is, without a doubt, leading conversations around information security. Following the Snowden revelations, and the more recent war between Apple and the FBI, ProtonMail couldn't have picked a more turbulent environment in which to go public. However, that could work in their favor, as increased questions about privacy have driven more people to seek encryption solutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that it is Swiss does not guarantee that it is not back-doored by the NSA. If you really have something to hide, write your own encryption system.

Moscow will keep seeking comprehensive information from the United States on the death in Washington in November 2015 of former Russian Press Minister Mikhail Lesin, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday. "We keep seeking exhaustive information on the circumstances of Mikhail Lesin’s death. The letter by the Russian Federation’s prosecutor general addressed to the US attorney general with a request to provide investigation data was recently handed to the United States through our embassy in Washington". Lesin died on November 5, 2016 at the Dupont Circle in the center of the US capital at the age of 57. The police found nothing suspicious at the scene then. The former minister’s friends in Moscow said that he was ill in recent years, underwent several operations, and, according to preliminary data, the cause of his death was a heart attack.

"I don’t believe that it is possible to hold elections not only in June 2016, I doubt that in June 2017 they can be held," Magera told Channel 5 TV. Director general of the Committee of Voters of Ukraine Alexei Koshel also said holding the elections in eastern Ukraine in the near future was impossible. In the best case scenario, the polls in Donbass could take place no earlier than in five years, Koshel said. In the worst case scenario, this could happen in ten or more years, he added.

With Marco Rubio Out, Ted Cruz Confronts a New Foe in John Kasich

After months squaring off against Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, presuming him to be the chief obstacle to a one-on-one showdown with Donald J. Trump, Senator Ted Cruz on Wednesday emerged from the latest Republican primaries with a new foe who was actually there all along: Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.

The transition seemed a bit jarring for all involved. The men had scarcely said a cross word about each other before Tuesday night’s contests.

Forgetting that problem in which Ted Cruz, born in Canada of parents who were Canadian citizens at the time, does not meet the Constitutional requirement for President of being a natural born US citizen, meaning born inside the US of US citizens.

Now, the GOP may turn a blind eye to this reality in their haste to get rid of Donald Trump. but does anyone here think that if Cruz becomes the GOP Nominee that Hillary's lawyers will not immediately file a legal challenge?

Why BDS Cannot Lose: A Moral Threshold to Combat Racism in Israel

snip: “The whole world is against us,” is quite a common justification in Israel itself, of the international reaction to Israel’s Apartheid practices. With time, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and feeds on past notions that are no longer applicable. No matter how many companies divest from Israel – the latest being the world’s largest security corporation G4S – and, no matter how many universities and churches vote to boycott Israel, Israeli society remains entrenched behind the slogan and its disconcerting sense of victimization.

Many Israelis believe that their country is a ‘villa in a jungle’ – a notion that is constantly enforced by top Israeli leaders. Right-wing Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is purposely advancing the crippling fear in his own society. Unable to see the unmistakable crimes he has carried out against Palestinians for years, he continues to perpetuate the idea of the purity of Israel and the wickedness of everyone else.

Oil price higher than $50-60 per barrel will lead to oversupply on market

Raising oil prices above $50-60 per barrel is inappropriate, it will lead to oversupply in the oil market, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Thursday. "I think that, in principle, it is inappropriate to raise the price to even more than $50-60, because then there will be an overflow of investment in projects, not very efficient at low prices, and again there will be an oversupply, which in its turn will lead prices down. But it is, so to say, the theory of the question. How it will actually be on the market — there are a lot of different factors that influence. That is why we cannot predict like we do using mathematical models. The dependence is not mathematical here," he told reporters.

Opposition says Assad must bear responsibility for Syrian situation

Syrian President Bashar Assad must bear responsibility for the current situation in the country, the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces' vice-president Mouaffaq Nyrabia told TASS on Wednesday. "Any political decision cannot be achieved and implemented without the responsibility," Nyrabia said. "But there exist no responsibility without final ceasefire." "In order to withstand the tendencies of revenge, we need to talk about responsibility in the United States and the International Criminal Court," he said. "This way will allow us to avoid extremism, terrorism and revenge." "Talking of Assad — he is number one in the list," Nyrabia said. The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces is a major alliance of opposition groups, standing for the replacement of Assad’s regime. Last December the coalition received the majority of votes in the supreme negotiating committee.

Russia's EU envoy: Russia and EU rethinking bilateral cooperation

Russia is "carrying out an inventory" of its cooperation with the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the European Union, told a Moscow-Brussels video conference on Wednesday. "It is not a reaction to the Monday decisions [of EU foreign ministers -TASS] because this work have been under way quite long. Moreover, we have never made a secret of it to our partners. We have agreed that each of the sides will do the [reconsideration] work at home. We will compare the conclusions drawn afterwards... We are just trying to conceive what has been useful and what has just created a semblance of strategic partnership. I think we are going to benefit from this pragmatic approach," Chizhov said that Moscow was carefully analyzing what was useful and what was just extremely pleasant but not at all beneficial or even redundant in Russia’s relations with the European Union.

Russia's Syria operation cost over $460 million

"The military operation in Syria, of course, required certain spending but the main part was from Defense Ministry’s resources - around 33 billion rubles. [This sum] was included in the ministry’s 2015 budget for holding drills and military training. We just redirected these resources for supporting the group in Syria," Putin said. "No one has invented a more effective way to perfect one’s military skills than in real combat actions. In this sense, military resources should better be used and spent in action than at the training range," the president added. According to the president, additional costs are required after the operation in Syria but they are justified in order not to pay a higher price in future. "The modern Russian weaponry has proved its worth in real combat conditions rather than at training ranges. This is the most rigorous test," Putin said, thanking all the workforce of the Russian defense industry.

Russia calls for proper assessment of Waffen-SS commemorations in Latvia

"The [annual] memorial events, which were held in Latvia to honor the Waffen-SS legionnaires had clear propaganda purposes and were aimed at glorifying persons linked to mass crimes against humanity, which the Nazis and their accomplices had committed during the Second World War," the Russian Foreign Ministry said adding that the Latvian authorities had once again appeased to the organizers of the Waffen-SS march in which deputies of the ruling coalition took part. "The systemic oppression of anti-fascist public organizations by the Latvian authorities by means, which include framed criminal proceedings similar to the ones initiated against Alexey Sharipov, the head of the Latvian Anti-Nazi Committee, is a source of our serious concern," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.

Iran preparing to send commandos, snipers to Iraq, Syria - military official

Iran is preparing to send its snipers and commandos as military advisers to the war-torn Iraq and Syria, a senior military official told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday.

The first group of commandos and snipers already undergo training for the purpose and Iran might decide on sending them to Iraq and Syria in the near future, the official said. Tehran is providing Iraq and Syria with military advisory and humanitarian assistance in their fight against terrorist groups.

Ukraine’s presidential administration expects PM’s resignation next week

Lawmakers may consider the issue of Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s resignation at an extraordinary session of the parliament next week, a source in the presidential administration told the Ukrayinska Pravda newspaper on Thursday. Over the past several weeks, teams of the president and the premier have been holding talks behind closed doors on replacing Yatsenyuk and forming a new cabinet of ministers. Ukraine’s presidential spokesman Svyatoslav Tsegolko said three scenarios were possible. First, a technocratic government led by American-born Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko could be set up if all pro-European factions support such a cabinet. Second, a government headed by Lvov Mayor Andrei Sadovy could be formed. Third, other candidates could be also suggested by the parliamentary forces if there is necessary support in the Rada.

Kerry to fly to Moscow for talks on Tuesday - diplomatic source

Kerry told reporters on Tuesday that he will go to Moscow next week "to discuss how we can effectively move the political process forward and try to take advantage of this moment." He said the cessation of hostilities brokered by Russia and the United States is largely holding and now Syria has the best opportunity in years to put an end to the conflict by resolving it at the negotiating table. "We have reached a very important phase in this process," Kerry stressed. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Kerry held a telephone conversation on Wednesday at the initiative of the US side. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said "following a request of the US Secretary of State, an agreement has been reached that John Kerry will make a working visit to Moscow next week to continue negotiations on pressing issues on the Russian-US agenda."

Oil market balance may be achieved 9 months after output freeze decision is made

An oil market balance may be achieved in nine months after the production freeze decision is made, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Wednesday. "If such [oil production freeze] arrangements are achieved, we estimate [market] rebalancing will be reduced to somewhat from six to nine months. The balance of supply and demand and oil market stabilization might be achieved late in 2016 - early in 2017," the minister said. At the same time, the minister predicts the average global shale oil production will drop 500-600 thousand barrels daily in 2016. "Shale oil production will decline by at least 500-600 thousand barrels daily this year," the minister said.

Syria Hmeimim group calls on Riyadh group supporters to lay down arms, hold dialogue

Discussions with opposition members from the Riyadh group (the High Negotiations Committee - HNC) are possible if their supporters agree to lay down arms, Ilian Masaad who heads the delegation of the internal Syrian opposition in Geneva that came to be known as the Hmeimim group has told TASS. "If they say that we stop here and that it is necessary to lay down arms," he said when asked whether the Hmeimim group was ready for contacts with the HNC. "I cannot talk with someone who puts a pistol to my head." When asked whether the HNC controlled armed groups on the ground, he said, "No, it doesn't. Terrorist and other groups opposed to the state are controlled by people funded by Qataris, Turks and Saudis. There are people in Riyadh’s delegation who work for this project. That’s their job. However, if one day Turkey says, ‘Enough!’, the next day the Turkish border will be closed and the delivery of weapons and ammunition still be stopped.

Diplomat: Russia sees no reason to invite PACE observers to parliamentary election

Moscow does not see any reason to invite observers from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to parliamentary election, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov told reporters on Thursday. "The Russian delegation does not participate in PACE. That is why there are other respectable parliamentary structures that, I am confident, will be invited by us," Meshkov said. "I do not see any reason to invite the structure where Russia is not working for now," he added. Meshkov said that at first the powers of the Russian delegation in PACE should be restored, and "only after that issues like that would be considered."

Bergdahl Explains Why He Walked Off Base

He wanted to draw attention to bad leadership

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said he left a post in Afghanistan in 2009 to draw attention to what he saw as bad decisions by officers above him, according to documents released Wednesday that also show he was diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. Bergdahl told a general who investigated the case that he hoped to cause an alarm by leaving his post, then walk to a larger base in Afghanistan so he could have an audience with a top commander. "It was a self-sacrifice thing," Bergdahl said, according to the transcript of a 2014 interview with Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl. He said he planned to turn up at the larger base within days and refuse to talk to anybody but a general. Instead, he wound up in enemy captivity for years and now faces charges including desertion.

In the interview, Bergdahl expressed misgivings about how he and other soldiers were sent to help retrieve a disabled armored vehicle before encountering explosives and enemy fire that turned a six-hour mission into one lasting several days.>>>

The remarkable photograph from 1937 shows Prince Philip, then just 16, in a funeral procession for his older sister Cecile, who was killed in an air crash.

The young prince is flanked by grieving relatives, all wearing distinctive Nazi uniforms. One is clad in the uniform of the Brownshirts; another wears full SS regalia. The street in Darmstadt, near Frankfurt, is lined with crowds – many giving the ‘Heil Hitler’ salute.

In another extraordinary photograph Prince Philip’s youngest sister Sophie – elegantly dressed with a fur hanging on the back of her chair – is seen sitting opposite Hitler at the wedding of Luftwaffe commander Hermann Goering and his bride Emmy.

“I don’t think he’s going to be charged in both jurisdictions,” said Jon Paul Rion, who added that he didn’t think DiMassimo would be in Dayton Municipal Court on Tuesday. “It’s clear that Thomas is simply a college student who, in his mind, was simply engaging in a form of political speech and making a statement, in his own mind.

After Stealing Democratic Election, Corporate Elites Blackout Bernie

Tuesday night’s US presidential primary election results were guaranteed weeks ago by a misinformation campaign, as early voting began in the key battleground states.

The outcome of Super Tuesday II, when US voters charged off to choose their nominee in the Republican and Democratic primary elections in five key battleground states, was already determined before the day began. That did not stop the pundits from setting the stage for an epic Sanders letdown following his improbable victory one week earlier in the Michigan race.

What pundits do not explain is that, in politics more than anything else, the process is what really matters. The process, the timeline, and early voting had decided the election long before the last voters trudged to the polls Tuesday evening.

With 99 delegates at stake in a winner take all contest, Florida was meant to be Rubio’s gallant last stand. Even though the polls showed Rubio trailing in double digits before Tuesday, Rubio still insisted he was going to win.

Politics is not politics without scandals. This scandal is about what appears to be a short-lived affair between Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz, Republican presidential candidates both.

No, it’s not what you’re thinking. No romance is involved — at least none that we know of.

Rather, it is an unusual $500,000 donation made by one of Cruz’s super PACs to Fiorina’s campaign.

Even the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has no clue on why the donation was made by Cruz to a rival candidate. The super PAC was vague about the donation, describing it on its FEC filing as “other disbursement.” So, the FEC sent a letter to the super PAC asking for a statement or description of the disbursement.

All that violence at Trump rallies actually helps Hillary Clinton

Violence at Donald Trump’s campaign events and the ensuing controversy did not slow his march toward the Republican nomination, but it may have helped Hillary Clinton in her pursuit of the Democratic nod.

The boost that Trump has given Clinton was suggested in surveys of Tuesday voters. In Ohio, the industrial state in which Clinton and her challenger Bernie Sanders fought most fiercely, two-thirds of voters said that Clinton was the strongest candidate to defeat Trump, and they went for her by a factor of 4 to 1.

That's why she did it! Remember that Hillary served on (and was fired from) the Watergate Committee. She got a world-class education on election dirty tricks from Richard Nixon!

A Ted Cruz SEX SCANDAL Appears To Be Looming?

Political insiders and operatives on Twitter are buzzing about new rumors concerning Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). This news comes just after the 12th Republican debate which was hosted on CNN, and days before key primaries in Florida and Ohio.

The Stop Trump PAC has been hinting at a major news bombshell for days. But apparently, the supposed news has less to do about Trump than it does about Cruz!

The buzz focuses on Cruz and Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson. Pierson is a former consultant for Cruz’s United States Senate campaign and is now the national spokeswoman for businessman Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, which makes this a particularly uncomfortable situation.

But it remains to be seen how far they will actually go in using their leverage to alter the results of this race, even as a coordinated effort is underway. Suffice to say, the political system is quite gamed, and tilted heavily towards a house win – the House that GOP built.
