The EpiPen is a useful device for individuals who suffer from severe allergies. So when news broke that Mylan, the sole maker of the autoinjector “pens” in America, had hiked the prices of its products from $57 each in 2007 to $600 for a package of two in 2016, news outlets had a field day.

Senator Bernie Sanders is launching a new campaign called ‘Our Revolution.’ The idea behind the new organisation, The Hill reported, is to “harness the energy of his supporters and help progressive political candidates” in the United States.

But even as the launch events organised across the country are expected to bring out thousands of Sanders supporters, trouble seems to be brewing.

2016 is the year many, many Americans began to question whether or not our elections, and to a lesser extent, our democracy (insert “it’s a constitutional republic, big difference!” here) are rigged. As I have argued many times in the past year, there is plenty of evidence suggesting these sceptical Americans are, indeed, onto something with their suspicions.

But the corporate media has come out in defense of America’s “democracy” — and political elites are defending the system, too. In the wake of Trump’s recent rhetoric regarding the “rigged” system, the ruling class of the United States is peddling the fiction that somehow Trump’s irresponsible sensationalism is solely to blame for the new-found feelings of illegitimacy plaguing our elections.

The Intercept recently began releasing batches of top secret internal newsletters from the most important division of the NSA, the Signals Intelligence Directorate, or SIGINT. This is basically the spy division. The internal newsletter, SIDtoday, was never meant to be read by anyone outside of the agency, but it trickled out with the Snowden leak and has been waiting for proper publication. The Intercept will release nine years worth of articles in batches. So far there have been two, and they contain hundreds of articles. They start in the very early stages of the Iraq war, with the first one dated March 31st, 2003.

I came across a twitter thread that spoke about a college student who committed suicide because he was debarred from giving his exams as result of poor attendance. Now you may think that it is a legitimate decision to bar a student from final exams if he/she did not have 70% attendance. But the rule does not apply when the student has a medical reason for his/her absence. Sushant Rohilla had a foot injury due to which he had missed classes. But the college administration turned deaf ear and debarred him.

Government intrusion into the lives of private citizens knows no bounds. Reports of citizens living off the grid, camping on their own land, and collecting rainwater, for example, have pushed local and state governments to write, rewrite and re-interpret laws to punish those who have sought to diminish dependence on the existing social hierarchy and seize control of their own lives.

A version of this article has previously appeared on AnonHQ.

Those involved with ‘Marijuana.com’ had managed to find themselves burrowing through the DNC Dump of WikiLeaks. The DNC dump was not much of a surprise for them, so much as the emails pertained inside. Within heaping mounds of emails, they had found a paid segment that had be supported by the Wind & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA). Within the compounds of the emails, the company was attempting to push fear into Washington, by cautioning politicians to become weary of legalising marijuana in America.

A version of the Huddle issue (referencing May 24th, 2016), shows a Politico newsletter that had been sent out for Capitol Hill. This email is now visible thanks to WikiLeaks, and you can view the original here.

The self-proclaimed superhero says he dresses up to ‘root out evil that police can’t reach’.

About a month ago, a Russian vigilante wearing a Batman costume declared war on drug dealers doing business in the Khimki area outside Moscow. So far, he claims to have captured around 40 criminals.

The TNEA (Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission) Counselling sessions got over recently. As I crossed the Anna University on my way to work I was seeing hoards of students accompanied by their parents walking in to the institute with a huge amount of hope and dreams.

You will never look at a stranger the same way again after viewing these photos…

A version of this article has previously appeared on TrueActivist and AnonHQ.

In December 2013, a photographer named Jay Weinstein was on a trip to Bikaner in the deserts of Rajasthan, India, when he spotted a man that piqued his interest. His first desire was to photograph the stranger, but the look of fierce intimidation stopped him in his tracks.

He relayed on Bored Panda that he ended up avoiding the man until the stranger jovially called out, “Take my picture, too!”
