"#America’s first major organized #crime boss was a #Jewish woman whose name almost no one knows today. She was Fredericka Mandelbaum, the subject of a new historical nonfiction #book by Margalit Fox.

“The Talented Mrs. Mandelbaum: The Rise and Fall of an American Organized-Crime Boss” tells the fascinating story of an immigrant who traveled in steerage to the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1850. After a decade of peddling lace and struggling to support her family, she transformed herself into a successful fence, someone who knowingly buys stolen property and sells it for a profit."

Not that we, of all people, believe in the German rule of law. It is common practice that deportations, for example, are usually carried out in exactly the same way in order to prevent any possible legal recourse. However, the fact that institutions such as the Public Prosecutor General’s Office in #Berlin explicitly ignore decisions by the Federal Constitutional Court and deliberately act contrary to them is something of a novelty in Germany. This says a lot about the political will to repress and the constitution of some German authorities.

#Pentagon ran secret anti-vax campaign to undermine #China during #pandemic

The clandestine #operation has not been previously reported. It aimed to sow doubt about the safety and efficacy of vaccines and other life-saving aid that was being supplied by China, a Reuters investigation found. Through phony internet accounts meant to impersonate Filipinos, the military’s propaganda efforts morphed into an anti-vax campaign. Social media posts decried the quality of face masks, test kits and the first vaccine that would become available in the #Philippines – China’s Sinovac inoculation.
