"To washington his inaugural events begin tonight with a memorial for covid victims and finally biden's inaugural address. It's expected to preach unity at a time when the country has never been more divided given how donald trump has dominated the psyche of america of the news media. Certainly of this town washington. Dc for the past five and a half years. Since he started his presidential campaign and these last four tumultuous years with him as president in the oval office. It is really hard to believe that. Today is the final full day of donald trump's presidency. What two little easier to believe is that it's ending in disgrace. Donald trump is reportedly in a foul mood still telling aides and friends. They speak to on the phone just in recent days that he believes he won the election. So he's continuing a commitment to the big lie. Which of course led to the insurrection at the capitol a couple of weeks ago. Eighties an astonishing thing to watch a president sort of disintegrate in front of you he leaves with his lowest approval ratings of his presidency and with leaders in his party trying to find a way forward in a post trump era mitch mcconnell reconvening the united states senate today the day before biden's inauguration had this to say which was a clear attempt at trying to get trump behind him and move his party to a different place. The mob was fed lies. There were provoked by the president and other powerful people. We certified to people's choice for their forty six president tomorrow president-elect biden and vice president-elect harris would be sworn in. It doesn't get clear than that. Now i don't know where mitch mcconnell was for the last four years but he clearly is in a place now where he's trying to make trump a part of his party's past not part of its future. As for the president we are still expecting a slew of controversial pardons. Which could come late today on this final full day in office and we're also expecting him to release. This prerecorded video message. Apparently recorded it in the blue room of the white house. He is making a farewell remarks to camera perhaps trying to highlight his legacy items many in his inner circle have been urging him to give some sort of farewell address so that he can put context around these four years from his perspective. He was reluctant to do so but eventually he did. Release this final speech. We did what we came here to do. And so much. More now as i prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on wednesday. I want you to know that. The movement we started is only just beginning since trump's last full day it is worth looking back at his inaugural address for years ago where he depicted a country that was full of american carnage. That's what he thought he had been elected to clean up to restore some other era. But of course what happened is pretty clear. Donald trump has left american carnage in his wake with four hundred thousand americans dead from the corona virus that he could not get his arms around control and protect americans from that more than anything else.

All right time for today's top stories. Here's what you need to know. The Democratic National Convention wrapped late Thursday, and after four nights of remote speeches and prerecord videos, it seems to have gone way better than expected. We've mostly talked about the big name speakers this week but last night, a teenager had one of the most powerful speeches at the convention. Hi, my name is Burton Harrington. Nine thirteen years old. And without Joe Biden I won't be talking to you today. About a few months ago I met him in New Hampshire. He told me that we were members of the same club. We we. Star. Brandon went on his gripe how Biden had shown him the book of poems. He'd read from the practice how to speak without a stutter and how he marked his speeches make them easier to say aloud neither say brandon was a big hit online among viewers. The idea that Biden is a person who cares what a major theme throughout the. Convention. Right up to his acceptance speech alongside his plan for Tackling Corona Virus Biden spoke deeply about the grief the country's feeling. Law. I understand. I understand heart is to have any hope right now. I'm this summer. Night. Let me take a moment to speak to those you who have lost the most. I have some idea how it feels to lose. Someone you love. Deep. Black hole that opens up in the middle of your chest and you feel like you're being sucked into it. I mean cruel. And unfair. Life can be sometimes. But I've learned two things. Your loved one may have left this earth. But they'll never leave your heart. Always. Be With you. You always hear the. Second. I found the best way through pain and loss and grief is to find purpose. As God's children, each of us have a purpose of in our lives. We have a great purpose as a nation. To open the doors of opportunity to all Americans to save our democracy. To, be a light to the world once again, it all Biden gave what most observers including on Fox News called one of if not the best beaches of his career. And meanwhile, this year's wildfire season California is already off to a chaotic start with several uncontained fires already burning around the state. As of this morning, California's cal fire website twenty, one active fires with just the three largest buyers alone having burned roughly half a million acres ready for context. That's the size of thirty five Manhattan's the number and intensive wildfires is. A lot for this time of year sparked by a late season heatwave and lightning strikes that said dry out vegetation ablaze. One of those fires burning. Santa Cruz County has already prompted around fifty thousand people to evacuate their homes and last night. The University of California Santa Cruz issued a mandatory evacuation order for its staff and students as fires approach the campus. The crisis is also overlapping with the corona virus crisis. The state usually depends on prisoners paid about three dollars a day to serve as firefighters during the peak of wildfire season but the Sacramento Bee reported this week that the state has quote placed twelve of the state's forty-three inmate fire camps on lockdown due to a massive outbreak at a northern California prison in Lassen county that serves the training. Center for fire. Crews. Yeah I'd say there's a much better way to go about that than paying inmates three dollars you know and the better way to do that is to don't do that. I completely agree like these are all volunteers apparently kind of I mean there's been a lot of reporting about this over the years, which is wild in another itself. There there's. They shouldn't be made up of volunteers. Volunteers are welcome, but it should be. An actual thing that the government is paying for no, I completely agree with you like the idea of getting cheap labor to do this it just clashes up against the idea of like I can see like in a much better more gala, -Tarian world where this could be like an actual like work training situation rehabilitating people getting them back out so that they have skills to take a one theory of serve their sentence but the fact that it is basically just being used as cheap labor just really it's weird in the system. Yeah. And then going back to the DNC speeches last night just truly last night was such a show of empathy which really has been lacking these last four years from the president. Honestly, and the government is just the word empathy and seeing that on display was just it took me aback low, but you know haven't seen it in a while. Yeah.

I mean someone on twitter said something along the lines up there just so many people in this country right now where if you went up to them, look them dead in the eye and said, this is so hard.

"Bittner with your cyber wires summary for Friday June fifth twenty twenty. Google's threat analysis group has warned the US presidential campaigns of both major parties presumptive nominees that Chinese and Iranian threat groups are targeting campaign staffers personal emails. Google's Shane Huntley tweeted the findings yesterday, and subsequently clarified that the threat groups in question are China's Abt thirty-one Hurricane Panda and Iran's AP t thirty five charming kitten. The Wall Street Journal reports that Hurricane. Panda is interested in the Biden campaign. Charming kitten has targeted the trump campaign both efforts are believed to have been unsuccessful. The Washington. Post says the two groups have different interests. Hurricane Panda is collecting intelligence on former vice president. Biden's views and those of his staffers while charming kitten is interested in undermining president. Trump's reelection Russia is also engaged with the election, but neither Iran nor China appear to be following Russia's playbook. The Post observes. So, to summarize Chinese intelligence services, WANNA find out what's on candidate, Biden's mind and Iranian. Intelligence services would very much like to see president. Trump's reelection campaign fail. The. Drone strike that killed General Suleimani is offense enough and the increasingly tight. US led sanctions. Make tons dislike for the president over determined. The Chinese interest in collection is as usual, thorough and extensive as the foreign policy research institutes Clint. Watts told The Washington Post quote China doesn't just want to know Biden's opinion about China they want to know all of Biden staffs opinions about every part of the world in quote. So, not only thorough and comprehensive, but also very much along the lines of traditional collection. Iran's collecting, too, but Toronto's collection seems more focused Iran is interested in obtaining and then releasing damaging material that would indeed be a page from Moscow, twenty sixteen playbook when cozy bear successfully and quietly penetrated campaigns, and when fancy bear docs the US Democratic National, committee and the Clinton campaign releasing emails that embarrassed the victims. Should Tehran obtain comparable dirt on this year's Republican presidential campaign, they can be expected to engage in the same sort of malign involuntary enforced transparency to which fancy bear subjected the Clinton campaign in two, thousand sixteen. Of course as the post and others routinely observe, it's also possible that foreign espionage services could use access to hacked email accounts and other resources to mount disinformation in the form of spoofs and fakes the fakes, either be deep or shallow. As long as they find, it doesn't matter because this is information warfare, not art. That sort of fakery didn't happen with the email compromise of sixteen, but it's certainly a possibility in twenty twenty. US Attorney General Bar yesterday, said in brief remarks about ongoing civil unrest that quote we are also seeing foreign actors, playing all sides to exacerbate the violence and quote. The Social Media Study Group graphic independently described influence campaigns by Russia China and Iran all of which seek to further their agenda by respectively drawing attention to fissures in American society, discrediting US criticism of human rights, violations and undermining the legitimacy of US led sanctions. This particular influence campaign doesn't seem to be marked at least not yet by the characteristic troll farming authenticity that became the distinctive Stigmata of earlier Russian influence campaigns. One aspect of influence operations has been the interplay between state run news outlets troll farms and useful marks, more or less uncritically accepted amplify the lines. The states operators are pushing. FACEBOOK has for some time enjoyed success in identifying and blocking what Menlo Park calls coordinated in authenticity. The social network is now beginning to address authentic media. WHO's viewpoint might be determined by their government controllers. FACEBOOK announced some months ago that it would begin labeling accounts run by state controlled media. This long anticipated labeling began yesterday. The labels appear in the Ad Library page view on pages and in the page transparency section. FACEBOOK is looking specifically for outlets that are wholly or partially under the editorial control of their government. Sputnik an RT would get the Russia's state controlled media label and China Daily, gets the controlled by you-know-who label. The verge. FACEBOOK's new policy as one of including information about their ownership in funding the level of transparency around their sources and the existence of accountability systems like a corrections, policy and quote. So simply being government funded doesn't make you state controlled. Therefore, the BBC presumably would get a pass for editorial independence as would Radio Free Europe Radio, liberty. AFP outlines the ongoing disinformation campaign against Qatar it's the latest round in a regional dispute that goes back to two thousand seventeen when Saudi Arabia. The United Arab Emirates Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar over that country's alleged closeness to Iran, and thus to Tehran backed Islamist groups. The recent disinformation include social media posts that claim a violent coup d'etat was in progress in Doha complete with grainy video of machine, gun fire, and so on some of this stuff came from social media accounts that just popped up. No followers, no nothing. None of the corroborative detail one expects would lend similitude to other wise, bald and unconvincing narrative. It's interesting. that AFP calls their story effect.
