Most women don't visit image boards. They are much more likely to be on Facebook or some other commercialized mainstream platform. And most male normfags still reside on reddit or 4chan. They typically talk about sports, television, drugs, sex and pretty much anything other than conventional news.

I don't think we'll be seeing anyone here but edgy preppers, paranoid conservatives and possibly occasional drifters or butthurt leftists who get triggered by the news titles.

Wow! Liberal Students Love Trump's Tax Plan... ... When Told It's Bernie's Idea Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 17:36:27 Id: 124f2f [Preview] No. 2564 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.

When the same ideas are packaged under Bernie Sanders' name, however, liberal college students excitedly endorsed them.

President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.

But what would some of those opponents think if they were told the same plan was being proposed by someone they adore—Senator Bernie Sanders?

To find out, we headed to George Washington University to ask students their opinions on Trump’s new tax plan. WIthout much explanation, the students immediately made clear their distaste for the plan.

“It’s not the most efficient, nor beneficial to the general populus,” said one student when asked her opinion of Trump’s plan.

“It’s better for the upper class than anyone else,” added another.

After watching student after student expressed their disapproval of the plan, we then asked those same students what they thought of Senator Bernie Sanders’ new tax plan.

Immediately, they expressed excitement and support after hearing the details of the plan.

White House: Trump to Nominate "Google Slayer" Anti-trust Attorney Joseph Simons to Lead FTC Reader 10/19/2017 (Thu) 16:09:49 Id: 12b596 [Preview] No. 2529 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
President Donald Trump will nominate Washington antitrust attorney Joseph Simons as chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, the White House said Thursday.

Simons, a partner at the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, would be appointed to a seven-year term and take over upon confirmation for Acting Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen, who has been running the agency on a temporary basis since Trump’s inauguration in January.

Trump will also nominate Rohit Chopra for the remainder of a term that expires Sept. 25, 2019. Chopra is a senior fellow at the Consumer Federation of America, where he works on consumer-finance issues. He was previously an assistant director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

As FTC chairman, Simons would take over an agency that is investigating the massive data breach at Equifax Inc., which exposed the personal information of more than 145 million Americans. It’s also in litigation against Qualcomm Inc. for allegedly abusing its monopoly in the market for smartphone chips, a case Ohlhausen opposed.

The FTC, which investigates mergers and consumer-protection cases, has been operating with three empty seats on its five-member commission. The other seat is held by Democratic Commissioner Terrell McSweeny. McSweeny and Ohlhausen split over Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.’s acquisition of about 2,000 Rite Aid Corp. stores, allowing the deal to proceed.


Simons, if confirmed by the Senate, will immediately jump into some contentious issues, including calls from members of both parties to apply greater scrutiny to the nation's biggest internet companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon.

Trump's pick is a blow to Ohlhausen, who has served at the FTC since 2012 and has spent most of this year openly campaigning for the permanent chairman job, by highlighting her skepticism toward regulation and even saying she took inspiration from "The Art of the Deal," Trump's 1987 memoir of his life as a real estate developer.

This could end up being very good for alternative internet platforms / smaller independent businesses. We'll see... let's hope so.

The Qualcomm move is weird: it's not their fault they are succeeding, and they aren't doing anti-trust moves like AT&T and Microsoft actually did. Plenty of ARM chip makers in the market, and that's assuming you even want ARM.

The article posted doesn't suggest the nominee will attempt to "slay" Google.

It's probably this.
>The commission said that Qualcomm’s dominance in CDMA and LTE chips, as well as its major patent holdings for both technologies, let the company abuse its position and refuse to license necessary patents. It’ll now be required to end those practices and parts of unfavorable deals it forged with other companies.

but that's their patents, they can do what they want with them. There's a difference suing a company you're competing with for damages you didn't invent, and maintain your IP. This looks unfair, considering Intel being the most anti-trust company I've witnessed. Why isn't this the nominees primary agenda? If we go the no Russian tech, why have Israeli tech?

George W. Bush Slams American 'Conspiracy Theories', Bashes Trump Supporters Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 19:15:43 Id: a67ce5 [Preview] No. 2568 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
George W. Bush – who peddled the most harmful conspiracy theory of modern times when he asserted Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, is today decrying America’s obsession with conspiracy theories.

Oh, the irony.

“Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts,” the former President said during a speech for the George W. Bush Institute. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”

— Axios (@axios) October 19, 2017

To be fair to Bush, he went on to make accurate comments about how the youth of today aren’t cognizant of the dangers of “socialist central planning” because they have no experience of the Cold War.

However, his remark about “conspiracy theories” cannot be allowed to slide.

By claiming that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, an outright fabrication that was dutifully sold by both deep state intelligence agencies and the mainstream media, Bush crafted the most damaging conspiracy theory of modern times and one that still reverberates to this day.

Not only did the invasion of Iraq cause the death of thousands of U.S. troops and the deaths and displacement of over a million Iraqis, it can also be blamed as the cause of the Syrian civil war, the rise of ISIS and the international migrant crisis.

Former FEC Chairwoman: Governments Should Control ALL Content On The Internet, Dissentients Should Be Sued Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 19:07:14 Id: 6be8ef [Preview] No. 2566 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In yet another stunning example of the left openly floating the idea of using the government to stifle free speech on the internet, the former Obama-appointed Democratic chair of the FEC has written a piece that essentially calls for the regulation of ALL political content on the internet while threatening the American people with lawsuits if they fail to comply.

Ann Ravel, who led the FEC under the Obama Administration and now is a lecturer at Berkeley, co-authored the piece with Abby K. Wood, a professor at the University of California, and a student at USC Gould School of Law, Irina Dykhne. The shocking proposal by the trio uses the purposefully undefined term, “disinformation” as the reasoning behind what would be an unprecedented crackdown on free speech by both the government and media platforms across the web.

In the proposal, government regulators would target Americans who shared stories that were deemed “fake news”, even going as far as to threaten them with libels suits if they shared the “disputed” content after a warning from the “acceptable speech overseers.”

The entire proposal is a must read but some of the more shocking segments include: (take note that this is indeed a direct threat to sue Americans who share content the establishment has labeled disinformation)

Educate social media users. Social media users can unintentionally spread disinformation when they interact with it in their newsfeeds. Depending on their security settings, their entire online social network can see items that they interact with (by “liking” or commenting), even if they are expressing their opposition to the content. Social media users should not interact with disinformation in their feeds at all (aside from flagging it for review by third party fact checkers). Government should require platforms to regularly remind social media users about not interacting with disinformation.

Similarly, after a social media user clicks “share” on a disputed item (if the platforms do not remove them and only label them as disputed), government can require that the user be reminded of the definition of libel against a public figure. Libel of public figures requires “actual malice”, defined as knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for the truth. Sharing an item that has been flagged as untrue might trigger liability under libel laws.

Ravel also makes clear that this isn’t just about highly produced political ads rather it includes free photo-shopped memes that any average citizen could post. On top of that, to enforce this draconian government takeover, these authoritarian liberals want to use the U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

The money involved in online political advertising is more diffuse than ad buys on traditional media. Like traditional ads, some ads produced for the Internet have high production costs. Others, like memes, are free to create. Unlike television and radio ads, some online ads are placed for free. Posting an ad to one’s Facebook Page, or tweeting it into a politically active social network in hopes it goes viral, costs nothing. Advertisers might pay a platform to promote the ad and place it in certain users’ newsfeeds. They might also buy “likes”, “shares”, and “retweets” outside of the platforms, from “troll farms” and “sock puppets”, which are humans who create false profiles and boost content, or from “bot armies”, which are machines mimicking human behavior to boost content.

Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 19:08:13 Id: 6be8ef [Preview] No. 2567 del
Finally, tracing the money involved in online political advertising is difficult, particularly when it comes from abroad. Our existing campaign finance enforcer, the Federal Election Commission, is not set up for complicated money tracing and data analysis. Any legislation that results from the current public interest in disinformation advertising should include an allocation of investigation and enforcement power to an agency that is better equipped to conduct the kinds of investigations that can trace money spent online and sometimes across borders, as well.

The U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) is an agency that has the expertise and capabilities necessary to enforce restrictions on disinformation advertising, though it cannot enforce in this realm without congressional authorization to do so. Congress should either authorize it to act or model a new investigative body on FINCEN.

Republican FEC Commissioner Lee Goodman immediately spoke out against the proposal, telling The Washington Examiner that, “Ann’s proposal is full blown regulation of all political content, even discussion of issues, posted at any time, for free or for a fee, on any online platform, from Facebook to the NewYorkTimes.com.”

“A fatal flaw of Ann’s proposal is that it cannot define what is, or is not, ‘disinformation’ in a political message. Nevertheless, it proposes to tag threats of libel lawsuits and liability to thousands of American citizens who might want to retweet or forward a message that somebody else subjectively considers to be ‘disinformational.’ I call that the big chill,” Goodman continued.

Make no mistake, this isn’t actually about fighting foreign governments attempts at meddling in American elections. This is nothing more than a transparent attempt by the establishment to cut off the peoples access to independent news outlets that the powers that be have deemed “disinformation.” In other words, any news outlet willing to publish information that doesn’t strictly line up with the establishment narrative.


Catalan Separatists Withdrawal Cash From Banks In Protest of Spanish Dictatorship Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 14:00:46 Id: 1b3c63 [Preview] No. 2551 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Catalan separatists were flocking to withdraw cash Friday in protest at the central government and at banks who have moved their headquarters out of the Spanish region over its independence crisis.

Some protesters were making symbolic withdrawals of 155 euros ($183) — a reference to Article 155 of the Spanish constitution, which Madrid is using to start imposing direct rule over the semi-autonomous region as the standoff following its October 1 independence referendum continues to escalate.

Others were opting for 1,714 euros ($2,023) in a nod to 1714, a highly symbolic date for independence supporters marking the capture of Barcelona by the troops of King Felipe V, who then moved to reduce the rights of rebellious regions.

“It’s a way of protesting. We don’t want to do any harm to the Spanish or Catalan economy,” said Roser Cobos, a 42-year-old lawyer who had just taken out 1,714 euros from the counter at a bank in Barcelona.

“It’s the only way in which Catalans can show their disagreement with the attitude of the Spanish state.”

Two influential grassroots separatist groups, the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) and Omnium Cultural, had issued a call on social media for activists to take “peaceful direct action” to show their opposition to the government of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

The two groups, whose leaders were detained last week pending investigation into sedition charges, specifically urged supporters to withdraw cash from the five main bank chains, “ideally between 8:00 am and 9:00 am”.

Joaquim Curbet, a 58-year-old editor, proudly brandished the 155 euros he had just taken out, expressing hope that the protest “would put pressure on the Spanish government”.

Several people could be seen queueing at a CaixaBank ATM on a central boulevard of Barcelona, the regional capital.

> Catalan Separatists Withdrawal Cash From Banks In Protest
Uh, okay. What, from ATMs? Kinda threading the needle there between making a point and making asses out of yourselves, on one side if people are dumb enough they won't realize that ATM levels of cash mean pretty much nothing, but if they're at least smart enough they will be reminded of the concept of Reserve Requirement. It's very possible that the conditions overlap and there's only people who don't get it for one reason, the other, or both, and they have no target group. Anybody they could reach wouldn't need to be reached. Yeah, yeah, it's "symbolic" and shit, but still.

Although I do hear that Spain is pretty hands-off right wing towards business, so maybe a 100 people drawing 1700 euros does cripple the financing of a few enterprises. Do they even have that cash at hand in offices anymore? If Catalans are such market gurus that they're really drawing in all this business to Spain and not just squatting on a convenient harbor venue because they got there first, they're not giving a good impression.

Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 18:53:54 Id: 1b3c63 [Preview] No. 2565 del
A few hundred people pulling out a little money from an ATM doesn't do jack shit, agreed.

If tens of thousands were to start withdrawing their entire life savings, THAT would become a problem for the banks and the Spanish government, which they would almost instantly shut down access to public accounts (possible leading to seizure of public bank accounts).

The way to organize a real resistance movement is to call for mass tax strikes and squat inside your homes and refuse to work for international businesses until your concerns are addresses: note that they will likely not be addressed in pleasant ways at first.

They'd have to expect the loss of ALL conveniences and luxuries: such as running water, electricity, gas, transportation services, etc. All of modern society would grind to a halt.

They'd need to go back to local economics 101: growing crops in their backyards, local farming, local ranching, proving independent services (construction, mechanical repair, butchering, knitting, cotton picking, mining, pottery, local delivery, etc). Yard sales. Garage sales. Flea markers. Farmers markets. And mostly on a barter basis. (You give me some bottled water, I'll give you some toilet paper).

They'd have to be willing to cripple Spain's ability to control the masses and have the masses rely on their own communities.

While Cuckservatives 'Struggle' To Pass Tax Cuts For Middle Class Workers, Amazon Saves BILLIONS From Tax Exemption Reader 10/20/2017 (Fri) 17:21:34 Id: 5762e8 [Preview] No. 2563 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Local governments around the US are offering Amazon at least as much as $7 billion in tax breaks ahead of a Thursday deadline as they compete to house its second headquarters.

The world's largest online retailer has won promises from elected officials who are eager for the $5 billion-plus investment and up to 50,000 jobs that will come with "Amazon HQ2."

New Jersey proposed $7 billion in potential credits against state and city taxes if Amazon locates in Newark and sticks to hiring commitments, according to a Monday news release from the governor's office.

Across the Hudson River, New York City made a proposal without incentives special for Amazon, though the state is expected to offer some, a spokesman for the city's economic development corporation said on Wednesday.

And across the country, California is offering some $300 million in incentives over several years and other benefits, the governor said in an Oct. 11 letter to Amazon's Chief Executive Jeff Bezos, published online by the Orange County Register.

Dozens of cities and states have expressed interest in HQ2. Credit ratings and research company Moody's has ranked Austin as the most likely to win based on its labor pool, costs of doing business and quality of life, among other criteria.

Austin is also the headquarters of Whole Foods Market, which Amazon recently acquired.

The city's chamber of commerce said in a Twitter post on Wednesday that it submitted its bid for HQ2.

Amazon has said it will announce a decision for its second campus, in addition to its Seattle headquarters, next year.
