Joe Biden’s Team Hid A Job Advert Within The Source Code Of Their Transition Website

President-elect Joe Biden’s team has hidden a secret job advert within the source code of their website, which has now been found by Internet sleuths.

Hiding fun easter eggs in the back-end of websites is almost as old as html itself. Job adverts have been hidden within code on sites for any developer to see, completely hidden from the average user so uncurious they’ve probably never even tried out the inspect element tool, except that one time when they did it accidentally, panicked, and immediately called IT.

Some cool ones in the past have been by Apple and The Guardian.

In a recent hidden easter egg, Google hid a text adventure game within Chrome’s development console. No stranger to hiding fun games to play around with (it once hid a version of Mario Kart within Google Maps), the tech giant hid the new retro adventure within a specific

Voters cast their vote at the Downtown West early voting location in Knoxville, Tenn., on the first day of early voting in Tennessee on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020.

Democrat Joe Biden may have been declared the projected victor of the 2020 presidential election on Saturday, after he secured the necessary 270 electoral votes, but that has not stopped lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign nor claims on social media from disputing Biden’s status as president-elect. 

“Just got word that they pulled Pennsylvania’s electoral votes from Biden today after the Supreme Court hearing on voting fraud!” wrote Facebook user Christa Elisha in a Nov. 9 post.

The internet loves Joe Biden’s very good dogs, Major and Champ

Folks online have become especially enamored with Major, a big ol’ German shepherd Biden adopted in 2018. Look at this good boy — who will be the first adopted dog in the White House.

Look at head-tilt and smile. We just love to see it. A Good Boy. 

After Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election by multiple major media outlets, it wasn’t long before folks began the celebrating a return of pups to the White House, since outgoing President Donald Trump was famously the first commander-in-chief in a century to not have a dog. A fan page on Twitter for the Biden dogs, for instance, has already racked up nearly 60,000 followers. Biden’s other dog, a German

Trump Broke the Internet. Can Joe Biden Fix It?

The DOJ isn’t the only source of anti-monopoly enforcement. The Federal Trade Commission has enormous, mostly unused power to rewrite the rules of competition. Without Congress’ approval, the FTC could issue rules, for example, that simply ban the use of noncompete clauses, binding arbitration clauses in user agreements, or the kinds of exclusive contracts that have come under scrutiny in the Google case. The tricky thing is that FTC commissioners serve seven-year terms and can only be fired for cause. Right now, the commission is made up of three Republicans and two Democrats, all of whom joined in 2018. That means one of the Republicans will have to retire or return to the private sector in order for Biden to get to install a majority that will enforce his priorities.

The even bigger question is just what those priorities are. Biden didn’t talk much about antitrust on the campaign trail.

Joe Biden launches presidential transition website

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday launched a transition website as he neared the 270 electoral votes needed to defeat President Trump.

The site,, features only a homepage topped with an image of the former vice president. It says “Biden-Harris Transition” against a solid blue background.

“The American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States. Votes are still being counted in several states around the country,” an unsigned message on the site says.

“The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change to racial injustice — and the transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden‑Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One.”

Trump has not conceded defeat and Biden has not quite clinched victory as absentee ballots are counted in remaining swing states.

Would Bernie Sanders Have Done Better Than Joe Biden? The Internet is Divided

Bernie Sanders supporters have flooded Twitter with claims the left wing candidate “would have won” against Donald Trump.

Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King was among those to claim the socialist politician would have been a better pick as Democrats waited anxiously to learn of their candidate’s fate.

Not everyone agreed with the verdict, however, with some pointing to the President’s tactic of painting the democrats as socialist.

King, host of current affairs podcast The Breadkdown, told his 1.1 million Twitter followers: “Bernie would’ve won. In 2016. And he would’ve won today.”
