Facebook Begins Losing Users Due To Censorship of News Coverage Reader 02/01/2018 (Thu) 01:02:39 Id: c07356 [Preview] No. 5942 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Here’s a troubling data point if you’re a Facebook investor: The company may have finally tapped out its most valuable market, the U.S. and Canada.

Facebook’s daily active user base in the U.S. and Canada fell for the first time ever in the fourth quarter, dropping to 184 million from 185 million in the previous quarter.

It’s a very small decline in a market that Facebook already dominates. But it’s also Facebook’s most valuable market, and any decline in usership — even a small one — isn’t a great sign.

It has been previously reported that Facebook has been removing conservative content as well as alternative media posted by their users. The censorship has begun driving users away from the platform.

Here is a great list of alternative platforms: >>5511

Good! 510 Arrested In Huge California Pedophile Ring Bust, Including Arnold Schwarzenegger's Aid Reader 02/01/2018 (Thu) 01:51:09 Id: 5e0152 [Preview] No. 5943 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Over 500 suspects were arrested and 56 people rescued in a huge California human-trafficking and pedophile ring crackdown.

The Los Angeles County Regional Human Trafficking Task Forces confirmed the arrests on Tuesday during the three-day sweep named ‘Operation Reclaim and Rebuild.’

ABC reports: During the operation, which took place between Jan. 25 and 27, the task force said 45 adults and 11 girls were rescued.

Among the 510 suspects arrested, 30 are suspected traffickers and 178 are alleged “johns.”

The task force is housed by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and is a collaboration of more than 85 federal, state, county and local law enforcement and nonprofit community organizations.

Speaking at a Tuesday press conference, Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell gave details surrounding some of the arrests.

“The message we hope to send to the traffickers is don’t do business in Los Angeles County or the state of California because we will find you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law,” he said.


An aide of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has also been arrested for operating a human trafficking ring in California.

Oh But "They Care About You!"... CDC Director Resigns After Caught Buying Tobacco Stocks Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 20:10:39 Id: 2f2a75 [Preview] No. 5937 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
America's top public health official abruptly quit on Wednesday, a day after a report surfaced that she had bought tobacco stocks while leading the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald had also invested money in food and pharmaceutical companies just one month after taking over the job.

The Health and Human Services Department quickly tapped Anne Schuchat as acting CDC director.

Schuchat had been the principal deputy director, and served a previous months-long term as acting director when the Trump administration began in 2017.

Fitzgerald 'owns certain complex financial interests that have imposed a broad recusal limiting her ability to complete all of her duties as the CDC Director,' Health and human Services Department spokesman Matt Lloyd acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday.

'Due to the nature of these financial interests, Dr. Fitzgerald could not divest from them in a definitive time period.'

Oh what a surprise! She bought shares in junk food companies and vaccines as well. $$$


“Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald had also invested money in food and pharmaceutical companies just one month after taking over the job,” reports the UK Daily Mail.

Yes, the head of the CDC bought tobacco stocks and Big Pharma stocks, even when her own decisions at the CDC were neck-deep in gross conflicts of interest related to public health. (The CDC studies and reports on death and disease related to smoking.

The corrupt agency also promotes pro-vaccine propaganda while burying all science that reveals vaccine injuries or adverse events.)

This pattern of corruption and collusion is no surprise, given that the director of the CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention was caught pushing pseudoscience nonsense that favored Coca-Cola and PepsiCo. The CDC, it turns out, is in bed with junk food companies, tobacco companies and vaccine manufacturers… all while claiming to be working in the interests of “public health.”

Communists In Uproar After Old Liberal Supreme Court Justice Falls Ill, Trump May Soon Be Able To Replace Her Reader 01/30/2018 (Tue) 19:53:27 Id: 04dca1 [Preview] No. 5911 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The corridors of power in D.C. are buzzing with the news that a vacancy is imminent on the U.S. Supreme Court – one that is currently held by one of the most liberal members of the Court.

It has the Trump White House giddy over the prospect of potentially and forcefully shifting the balance of power on the Court while Democrats in Congress are said to be “scrambling” and warning White House staff of a prolonged and brutal fight should Trump attempt to replace a liberal Justice with a hardline-conservative nominee.

DC Whispers reports: The reason for the Justice’s alleged departure is said to be “ongoing illness/physical limitations.”

The first on the Court that comes to mind given those clues is 84-year old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Justice Ginsberg has visibly slowed down a great deal in recent years, and has been prone to falling asleep in public, even when on the bench. Ginsberg’s office has taken to pushing back on rumors of her health issues via a series of left-leaning media publications, but Court watchers have noted Ginsberg’s increasingly limited public schedule of late.

Despite his 79-years, Justice Stephen Bryer’s place on the Court apparently remains secure, but not so with two others – swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy, 81, and liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor, 63.

Justice Kennedy, a moderate liberal (or moderate conservative depending on who you talk to) has already hinted at possible retirement, so he is not the likely source of the current Supreme Court rumors.

Justice Sotomayor, though, despite being among the Court’s younger members, is said to be struggling greatly with her workload as she deals with a worsening diabetes condition. Court watchers have noted a visible decline in just the last year where she appears to have aged ten years.

Environmentalists On Suicide Watch: US Oil Production Tops 10 Million Barrels A Day for First Time Since 1970 Reader 02/01/2018 (Thu) 03:31:47 Id: c91d0e [Preview] No. 5952 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5529

U.S. oil production surpassed 10 million barrels a day in November for the first time in nearly 50 years, a milestone that underscores the growing dominance of the U.S. oil industry.

While global oil exporters once dismissed shale as a flash in the pan, the industry has emerged more efficient than ever from a three-year oil price rout and is poised to take advantage of prices that are at their highest levels since late 2014.

In November, production rose to 10.038 million barrels a day, 4% more than the previous month, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That is just shy of the monthly record of 10.044 million barrels a day in November of 1970.

The resurgence of the U.S. shale industry is the latest turn in the tug of war between shale producers and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, which last year coordinated an output cut with other major exporters, including Russia. The group has been trimming about 2% of global oil supply in a bid to work off a glut and raise prices.

The efforts have paid off: prices have surged this year amid tightening supplies and world-wide economic growth that stirred surprisingly strong demand.

The prospect of a flood of new output from shale wells has tempered oil rallies at times but hasn’t much diminished investor enthusiasm lately. U.S. oil prices rose more than 7% in January and have posted monthly gains for five straight months--their longest streak since 2011. On Wednesday, U.S. crude futures rose 23 cents to $64.73 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange and Brent, the global benchmark, rose 3 cents to $69.05 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe.

The new data bolster a prediction made at the end of 2017 by Rystad Energy, a consulting firm that tracks production data. At that time Rystad said that the U.S. had already hit the 10 million barrel a day marker, citing strong shale output gains in October that were masked by the effects from hurricanes on Gulf of Mexico pumping.

As U.S. producers pump more, oil imports from foreign countries are shrinking to new lows and American crude exports are rising. The petroleum trade deficit in the U.S. was 2.5 million barrels a day at the end of the year when looking across all types of petroleum liquids, including fuels such as gasoline and diesel, Rystad said. That is down sharply from a peak petroleum deficit of 12.5 million barrels a day in 2007.

Swiss Central Banker Goes On Murder-Suicide Rampage: Kills Top Lawyer, Self Reader 02/01/2018 (Thu) 03:19:15 Id: e0cb1b [Preview] No. 5950 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The drama of a murder-suicide in a sleepy, Swiss town reached the main financial street in Zurich, after it emerged that the man who shot top lawyer and media man, Martin Wagner, in cold blood on Sunday, was a risk manager for the Swiss National Bank.

This is what happened: according to barfi.ch, on Sunday, the village of Rünenberg in Baselland was in shock following news of the tragic murder of media lawyer Martin Wagner, 57. Wagner was fatally wounded in a dispute with his neighbour.

The perpetrator is Martin G., 39-year-old family man. On Sunday morning, he had a loud argument with his wife, who fled from him to Wagner's villa. There, G. first shot the 57-year-old Wagner, then killed himself.

Now, the hush which descended on the village after the murder has slowly given way to one question: why? The police stressed that there are personal reasons behind the murder-suicide.

"Investigations are still running at full capacity. People are being interrogated and different leads are being followed." The murder weapon has already been found and seized by the police.

A team of around 70 personnel was called in to deal with the murder on Sunday, including the security police, the "Barrakuda" special unit, a forensics team, prosecutors, and the institute for judicial medicine.

"For tactical reasons we cannot say exactly how many people we consider as part of the investigation," Michael Lutz, the investigator in charge of Baselland’s prosecution, said in a press release.

According to the investigative authorities in Baselland, the motive for the killing remains unclear. However, one assumption which was made on the day of the crime holds fast. "The police and prosecution can assert that, based on current results within the investigation, there are no hints that the crime was committed in the context of the professional activities of the victim," a spokesperson for the investigation said.

What is now know, is that at the Swiss National Bank where he worked, Martin G. was a risk manager. He was part of a team of around 15 specialists, who take care of the huge positions on the SNB's balance sheet.

Former FBI Agent Andrew McCabe Under Active DOJ Investigation For Obstruction of Justice Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 19:11:46 Id: 396e32 [Preview] No. 5934 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Justice Department's internal watchdog has been investigating former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for apparently sitting on emails obtained from Anthony Weiner's laptop, the Washington Post's Devlin Barrett and Karoun Demirjian reported Tuesday (of note, Barrett was recently outed as a potential source of FBI leaks, according to text messages between FBI employees accused of political bias)

The DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, wants to know why McCabe allegedly took little to no action for approximately three weeks on the trove of emails sent by Hillary's top aide, Huma Abedin - Weiner's wife, which were discovered during an unrelated investigation into Weiner "sexting" with an underage girl.

The inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, has been asking witnesses why FBI leadership seemed unwilling to move forward on the examination of emails found on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) until late October about three weeks after first being alerted to the issue, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter.

A key question of the internal investigation is whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the Nov. 8 election, these people said. It is unclear whether the inspector general has reached any conclusions on that point. -WaPo

In late September 2016, approximately five weeks before the US election, thousands of Huma Abedin's work-related emails were found on Weiner's laptop. According to WaPo, the New York FBI office alerted FBI headquarters within days - though accounts as to the exact date vary.

Either way, McCabe was made aware of the matter by late September or early October, as the NY field office agents wanted to discuss the issue with DC Clinton email investigators to compare notes. According to people familiar with the matter, officials at FBI headquarters requested the emails' metadata - which include the sender, recipient and timestamp.

While McCabe is said to have been involved in those discussions, accounts vary as to how much then-FBI Director James Comey knew of the situation.

Some people involved at the time said Comey learned of the issue around the same time as McCabe. Others contend Comey did not know about it until weeks later. Senior Justice Department officials, according to several people familiar with the issue, were not notified until mid-October.

But for a period of at least three weeks, according to people involved at the time, nothing much happened a lag that has sparked the inspector generals questions. -WaPo

McCabe announced his departure from the FBI on Monday following a meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, in which they reportedly discussed the Inspector General's investigation.

McCabe had previously announced a March retirement. Several media outlets reported that McCabe is using his remaining vacation days to go on "terminal leave" and that his official retirement from the agency won't happen until March, allowing him to collect the full pension.

Also notable is that Wray was reportedly "shocked to his core" Sunday night after viewing a four-page confidential FISA memo said to detail egregious surveillance abuses by McCabe's team. The next day, McCabe was forced to step down.

Hannity sat down once again with journalist Sara Carter this week, whose sources say McCabe may have also instructed FBI agents to alter their "302" forms - the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone:

Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report - I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report.

If the reports from Sara Carter and the Washington Post's ever-connected Devlin Barrett are true, McCabe not only sat on the Weiner laptop emails related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation - but also asked FBI agents to commit crimes by altering paperwork.

Or, as Sarah Westwood summarizes, this report suggests:

McCabe tried to stall probe of Weiner laptop emails til after the election
McCabe's colleagues got suspicious about the delay

Trump to allow 800,000 shitskins to stay

President Trump promised Tuesday to sign what he called a "bill of love" to extend protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children --- if Congress can work out the details.

"You folks are going to have to come up with a solution," Trump told 25 lawmakers in a remarkable televised negotiation at the White House. "And if you do, I'm going to sign that solution."

The Republicans came with a common talking point: Congress needs a permanent fix to immigration enforcement, or else have to deal with the issue again. Democrats said the urgency of saving DREAMers from deportation meant that extending DACA must take priority.

"A clean DACA bill, to me, is a DACA bill where we take care of the 800,000 people," he said. "We take care of them and we also take care of security. That's very important."
Sen. Richard Durbin, D-III., the number two Democrat in the Senate, expressed optimism that such a deal could get done.

They should not be allowed over here at all, but regardless of what a lot of people may think, Trump can't do everything he wants. He has to make deals with politicians because a minority of the Republican party is just as cucked as all the Democrats.

Trump is using DACA as leverage to get his wall. He knows he doesn't have enough REAL conservative votes to get that wall without a compromise. Sad... but that's reality. I still say he has some tricks up his sleeve like NAFTA (which the establishment really wants him to leave alone). Imagine if he were to say something like "grant us the wall funding or we are not only going to let DACA expire, we will withdrawal from NAFTA too). That would make them really panic so I think some threats are coming, for both sides.

update Reader 01/25/2018 (Thu) 23:47:34 Id: 408744 [Preview] No.5769 del
Here's an update:

President Donald Trump proposed a path to citizenship for 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, if lawmakers agree to create a $25 billion fund to expand barriers along the Mexico border and make other changes to the immigration system.

The proposal, presented to Senate leaders on Thursday, would additionally restrict family-based immigration, which is the channel by which most immigrants have come to the U.S. for the past 50 years. The White House plan also calls for an end to a lottery-type program that randomly awards 50,000 visas annually to foreigners.

Mr. Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum on Thursday. But his top aides told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that the president would sign into law legislation that included these changes. The Republican leader responded that he intended to bring such a bill to a vote during the week of Feb. 5, White House officials said.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Mr. McConnell could find enough support for such a measure. Passage needs a total of 60 votes in the Senate that will require backing from Republicans, who hold 51 seats, and some Democrats.

And White House officials on Thursday acknowledged that approval was an even bigger question in the House, where a small but powerful wing of conservative Republicans can—and often do—prevent their party from acting without help from Democrats.

The biggest question Thursday was how conservatives will react to Mr. Trump’s support for citizenship for the Dreamers, who were shielded from deportation by actions taken by former President Barack Obama. About 700,000 immigrants registered for that program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Mr. Trump’s plan would protect those people, plus others who would otherwise qualify. That brings the total to about 1.8 million people who could become citizens within 10 to 12 years, White House officials said.

As State-run Corporate Media Reports Fake News, They Ignore Thousands of Americans Dying From Recent Flu Shots

RELATED: >>>/news/5468 ; >>>/news/5551 ; >>>/news/5672 ; >>>/news/5674 ; >>>/news/5690 ; >>>/news/5731 ; >>>/news/5865

Children are dying from the flu all across America, according to media reports. What the media isn’t reporting, however, is how many of the children who died were also vaccine recipients. Make no mistake: If only unvaccinated children were dying from the flu, that would be the headline everywhere: “Unvaccinated Children Dying Across America” or even “Flu Shot Saves Children from Deadly Influenza.” But of course you’re not seeing those headlines for the simple reason that vaccinated children are among those who are being killed by this year’s flu.

“The dominant Influenza strain this year is H3N2. This particular strain has a history of causing more hospitalizations and more deaths,” reports The Organic Prepper. “In addition to H3N2 producing a more serious infection in general, this year’s particular H3N2 influenza virus is particularly virulent.”

This year’s flu has reportedly killed 44,116 people, according to the CDC. The number of children so far killed by this year’s flu is 37, say CDC statistics. The flu vaccine, widely touted by the clueless media as being some sort of magical “bulletproof vest” against influenza infections, is approaching zero effectiveness.

Via The Organic Prepper: Not only does this influenza strain produce a more intense and deadly flu, the flu vaccine is less effective against it. This Centers for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) article discusses a study published in The Lancet spanning 11 years that demonstrates H3N2 is more resistant to the flu vaccine. … the flu vaccine demonstrates only a 33% vaccine effective (VE) rate with the average H3N2 strain… To make matters worse, this year’s flu vaccine isn’t even close to the average 33% VE rate of prior years. This year’s vaccine is performing at approximately a 10% VE rate.

So wait, what?

You mean to tell me the CDC already knows that this year’s vaccine is only 10% effective at protecting children from the influenza strains circulating in the wild? According to CBS News:

This year’s flu vaccine may only be 10% effective, experts warn… It is the same formulation that was used during Australia’s most recent flu season — which typically sets a pattern for what the U.S. will face — and it was only 10 percent effective there.

You don't have to go to a doctor or sign a contract. Thats not mandatory, you THINK its mandatory. You may have been brainwashed that its mandatory... but its not. You may have had to pay for healthcare via Obamacare (if you have choosen not to pay the tax). But that does not mean you couldn't have rejected checkups (which you can do, its not against the law to avoid a doctors visit).

I'll say this, you better be very careful from now on what you sign. Make sure you agree with it. If the contract enslaves you, its NOT against the law to get a lawyer involved or reject that contract. You may have some inconveniences, sure. But its NOT against the law to say "nope, not signing this."

There are some limits to freedom even in the US but you have to know your individual rights in order to practice them.

No one made it against the law to see a doctor. No one made it against the law to choose an alternative holistic doctor either. Yes, you can do that! But if you don't have enough balls to practice those rights then tough luck, just bend over and give up.

I'm not going to ever bend over and give up. I know my rights and I practice them.

No one made it against the law to avoid a doctor, lets put it that way. I have a doctor myself, but I haven't seen him in at least a few years, because I don't need to. I feel fine, I take care of myself via a healthy diet and exercise. I don't go taking vaccines either, and I certainly don't ask or tell any govt official about it, I keep to myself. I think a lot of Americans forgot what its like to keep their personal matters to themselves. Thats too bad.

Third World USA? Train Carrying Members of Congress Derails Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 17:20:24 Id: 001bd0 [Preview] No. 5930 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A train carrying members of Congress -- including House Speaker Paul Ryan -- to their legislative retreat in West Virginia hit a truck Wednesday, multiple sources told CNN.

An aide confirmed Ryan was on the train and is fine. Separately, a congressman on the train told CNN most of the staff and members on the train are OK.

The Amtrak train left from Union Station in Washington earlier Wednesday, and was carrying members of Congress, as well as their spouses, some family members and aides to the lawmakers.

Rep. John Faso, a New York Republican, who was on the train that crashed, said he was able to see the truck that hit the train, and that he was told that injuries were expected from people in the truck, not train.

"There was (what) looks like a tractor trailer carrying trash that was hit by the train," Faso, who said he was in the third car of the train, told CNN.

"I think everyone on the train is OK," Faso said. "I don't know that for sure, it's a long train. But most of the concern is for the people outside."

One GOP source was unsure how many members of Congress were on the train or how many people were injured, but said there were injuries.

That source said members "hit the deck."

Republican members of Congress were on their way for a retreat at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, starting Wednesday and ending Friday. Vice President Mike Pence, who was not on the train, is scheduled to speak to members later Wednesday and President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the event tomorrow.

Truck Smashed Into Train!
Was this an orchestrated attack?

A chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers to a Republican policy retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck in a rural Virginia town on Wednesday. No lawmakers or aides were reported injured, but the White House said one person was killed and another was seriously hurt.

Lawmakers said the fatality appeared to be someone who was on the truck. One lawmaker who was aboard the train, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said the vehicle had been ripped in half and said he saw a person wrapped in tarp and said emergency workers appeared to be "putting a body away."

Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods says there were no reported injuries to passengers or crew members after the incident, which happened around 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, Virginia. Crozet is about 15 miles west of Charlottesville.

Madeline Curott, Albemarle County police spokeswoman, said authorities had received a call "about a fast train hitting a truck." She would not confirm a fatality but said three people on the truck were seriously injured.

Cole said he felt "a tremendous jolt" when the accident occurred, nearly two hours after it left Washington headed to the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

The policy retreat, an annual event, is scheduled to last three days and feature speeches from President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. By early afternoon, lawmakers were boarding buses to resume their trip and Pence was still planning to address them later Wednesday.

Cole said the train stopped quickly after impact. He said several GOP lawmakers who are doctors got off the train to assist, including Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, who was also at last June's shooting of Republicans at a baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, and treated some of the victims.

This is literally the fist time since Reagan when we had a decent president and a strong Republican majority.

Someone is not playing fair that's for sure. Remember there was another attack against Republicans early last year too, some nutcase was shooting at Congressmen playing a baseball game. I don't think any got killed, by the grace of God, but some were shot and injured.

With the FISA memo about FBI abuse against the Trump administration coming out soon, as well as all these new political investigations reopening someone is running scared and trying to have Congress killed or intimidated over all this stuff going on.

I think this "deep state" is being confirmed as fact, its no longer a secret our govt has gone rogue and is working for foreign interests. The Republican party only represent a threat because they haven't been 100% subverted yet.
