Trump-Russia Collusion Conspiracy Backfires: Clinton's Documented Ties To Russia Are Being Exposed And Investigated Reader 10/25/2017 (Wed) 02:37:03 Id: a4a169 [Preview] No. 2696 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Lefty cheers for Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in US politics may soon fade now that he’s reportedly looking into a top Democratic lobbyist.

NBC reports that Tony Podesta (the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta) and his firm are the subjects of a criminal investigation by the special prosecutor.

And this comes amid new reports that the FBI gathered evidence for two years as Russian agents — including a major sleeper cell — worked to gain access to then-Secretary of State Clinton, husband Bill and members of their inner circle.

All of which underscores that, yes, Russia has long been trying to worm its way into US politics. But that effort went far, far beyond any schemes to help elect Donald Trump president.

The Podesta probe concerns suggestions he failed to fully disclose spending (a felony) while lobbying for a pro-Russian Ukrainian group.

The firm updated its foreign agent registration forms only after news reports disclosed Podesta’s payments from the European Center for a Modern Ukraine.

Meanwhile, The Hill is reporting new details of a years-long FBI investigation that tracked Moscow’s covert influence-buying activities — including planting a spy posing as an accountant in the offices of a top Clinton donor.

Team Hillary has long denied that she was a target of the spy ring, but an FBI source told The Hill: “There is not one shred of doubt from the evidence that we had that the Russians had set their sights on Clinton’s inner circle.”

He can't send people to jail all willy nilly without having complete evidence to crucify an opponent. That would be like jailing a negro for hearing a foreigner say he's bad. Sure, wikileaks e-mails are legit, but I need the evidence to be from my own bureau to chiefly exercise my Pardon

Problem is the heads of the FBI are so fucking bias, they are Obama holdovers. Until Trump makes the decision to fire these holdovers; (which as president he has the right to do); then we will see no prosecution. The criminals will continue protecting one another as long as they hold power. Time to fire ALL officials who refuse to do their jobs!

Neo-con Cuckservatives Like John McCain Join Democrats In Attempt To Censor Online Political Content Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 16:33:15 Id: bd93e4 [Preview] No. 2669 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Conservative media titan Matt Drudge took to Twitter Monday to shred Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) over his decision to side with Dems on regulating political ads on websites, including The Drudge Report and Facebook.

“McCain ran 100s of campaign ads promising to repeal Obamacare. He defrauded voters,” Drudge tweeted.

“Now he supports ‘Honest Ads Act.'”

Drudge included a link to a story by the Washington Examiner detailing how McCain is joining the Democrats’ ranks by siding with them on regulating political online advertisements.

— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) October 23, 2017

“The ‘Honest Ads Act,’ co-sponsored by Democrats Virginia Sen. Mark Warner and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, would put new legal requirements and punishments on websites with 50 million unique monthly readers that take a tiny $500 or more in political ads from one advertiser,” states the article.

These new legal requirements will force large websites like Google and Drudge to keep a ‘public repository’ of paid political ads on their websites in 'an effort to prevent state actors like Russia from influencing U.S. elections'.

John MacCain is a war mongering dickhead who has a long bad history of squealing like a rat to foreign enemies. He was never was a true republican.

We are talking about a man who supports banning guns and disarming American citizens. We are talking about a man who defends governmental land grabbing. We are talking about a man who supports un-American trade deals like NAFTA and who supported TPP (both which outsourced American jobs). We are talking about a man who defends amnesty/open borders (deliberate destabilization). And we are talking about a man who wants internet censorship - and a man who once openly called for banning online encryption!

Defending a man like this makes you an asshole! Almost every American conservative hates his guts at this point, I would know because I know a few conservatives from Arizona who have been trying to vote his corrupt ass out for years! Hopefully his brain cancer will start to kick in soon and flush his shitty fucking career down the toilet where it belongs!

Open up your ass cheeks nice n' wide and feel that Trump jizz getting pumped in. Hahahahahahaha!

So, gonna double down in 2018? Go with the full Trump ticket? Please do! There's nothing I want more in the land of polticks than to see you right wingers do just that.

You are pathetic buying into all this political propaganda. Politicians from both sides are fucking crooks and liars who have no interest in serving the American public. McCain - like 99% of all other incumbents - are white collar criminals lining their pocket books for the interests of international corporations.

Once more, its very sad you don't understand why people voted for candidates like Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump. Americans didn't want another Clinton or Bush presidency - which thanks to rebellion on both sides we didn't end up being bound to. Say all you want about Trump, he is still 1000x better than another Clinton or Bush.



Trump Was Right: Clinton Campaign, DNC Paid for Fake Dossier On Trump Reader 10/25/2017 (Wed) 02:19:06 Id: 686d2c [Preview] No. 2695 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and the DNC and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC were not informed by the law firm of Fusion GPS’s role.

The dossier has become a lightning rod amid the intensifying investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible connections to Russia. Some congressional Republican leaders have spent months trying to discredit Fusion GPS and Steele and tried to determine the identity of the Democrat or organization that paid for the dossier.

Last week, Fusion GPS executives invoked their constitutional right not to answer questions from the House Intelligence Committee. The firm’s founder, Glenn Simpson, had previously given a 10-hour interview to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Over objections from Democrats, the Republican leader of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), subpoenaed Fusion GPS’s bank records to try to identify the mystery client.

FBI didn't pay for it, but Trump was correct saying the dems did.

And as for the FBI, they were working with the guy that created the dossier, Christopher Steele. So Trump was pretty damn accurate with his assumption saying there was collusion going on, yes there was collusion to try to undermine his presidency and we know this as fact now.

Nobody cares who paid for someone to look into the nature of what was going on between Trump and Russia. In fact, everybody had forgotten about the pissmeister dossier because Mueller's investigation into the actual dealings themselves are actually pretty relevant now - like it looks like people might go to prison. Dragging the dossier up again and trying to make it sound like it matters who all of the entities were that were paying for it (Dems and Repubs both at various points by the way) is not going to save Trump from the investigation.

When it comes to undermining the presidency, Trump is the guy you need to worry about the most. If you have any ideas for how his staff can get him to shut the fuck up, they'd love to hear them.



Lawsuits Over Injuries From Robot Surgeries Begin Reader 10/23/2017 (Mon) 16:01:22 Id: 2a8f21 [Preview] No. 2628 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
When Teresa Hershey was told she needed a hysterectomy, her doctor recommended a novel approach: an operation performed by a robot, guided by the surgeon.

“She was just very persuasive,” said Hershey, 45. “I’d never heard of it.”

The doctor’s assertion that less invasive, robot-assisted surgery would mean seven to 10 days of recovery instead of six to eight weeks for a conventional operation convinced her, along with the prospect of less scarring: The da Vinci robots from Sunnyvale’s Intuitive Surgical need only small holes for inserting surgical equipment.

Now, seven years and 10 corrective surgeries later, Hershey is gearing up to fight Intuitive in Santa Clara County Superior Court. She says she has refused the firm’s offers to settle.

“I want to go all the way,” said Hershey, whose case would be only the third to go to trial amid a torrent of legal claims. “There’s just been too much with this company, and too many people hurt. I just want the world to know what they’ve done. I don’t want them to get away with it, to be swept under a rug.”

Since the da Vinci surgical robot received FDA approval in 2000, Intuitive’s devices — which are operated by a surgeon using joysticks, foot pedals and a 3-D viewer — have propelled the firm to a $35 billion valuation and world dominance in robot-aided surgery. But the legal claims that have come with Intuitive’s success showcase the serious risks that accompany the rewards new medical technology can bring.

In a 2014 regulatory filing, Intuitive said it was facing 3,000 product-liability claims over surgeries taking place between 2004 and 2013 when its robots performed about 1.7 million procedures. The firm set aside $67 million to settle an undisclosed number of claims. Many of the early claims related to device components that ended up being recalled by Intuitive. Product liability claims can allow consumers alleging harm to negotiate a settlement with a company without filing a lawsuit and Intuitive notes that such claims are “inherent to the medical device industry.” Its da Vinci machines have been used in more than 4 million operations.

In its most recent quarterly report, the firm said it is still facing a “large number” of product-liability claims, plus 52 lawsuits alleging its machines were responsible for patient injury or death, and a multiparty suit covering 55 patients who had da Vinci Surgeries in 22 different states. Many complaints concern surgeries done in 2012 and 2013.

Problems specific to robot-aided surgery may arise from hardware or software issues and human error, said Scott Lucas who, as director of accident and forensic investigation at the ECRI Institute, studies the da Vinci robots that dominate robot-assisted surgery.

follow the money and the doc's patient history. ten to one this isn't about robots, it's that she didn't actually need a hysterectomy and the doc's a greedy butcher. too many docs talk patients into hysterectomies because surgery is free money.

These robots are better than surgeons, don't fall for the stupid propaganda this is a lawsuit so that whenever anything goes wrong that might have gone wrong normally the manufacturer can be sued too by greedy lawyers.


Robot surgery is much more precise. The operate must move his arm by like a foot to move the robot arm an inch. It allows very fine and careful movements and removes arm shaking.

Here's what I see happening in this "brave new world" many dream and hope will be some kind of "utopia"...

It won't be. All you activity will be monitored 24/7, privacy will be obsolete. Now you may not care about that right now... because most governments don't use that information for pre-crime or thought crime or installing total micro-management (yet) ... but this day will come and when it does you won't have anywhere to hide and there will be no security for your personal well-being or safety. Someone doesn't like you, they'll know why and everything else about you including where you live.

You claim to be brave now, but when the laws change and almost everything we hold valuable (prosperity, privacy, freedom, human & civil rights, sovereignty) become illegal then prepare to be one of these four statistics: 1) enslaved/disarmed/subjugated, 2) on the run 24/7 (and good luck dodging a heavily monitored police state!), 3) jailed and confined to prison or 4) killed for disobeying or fighting back.

But that's only the beginning my friend.

Just wait till you can't get a job or make income and the government welfare checks stop after a global reset or another major economic crisis (which is coming). And the only way to put crumbs on your table is to slave labor 50+ hours a week. That, or you end up with NOTHING and die... just another statistic who will be ignored and snubbed by elitist snobs who give a rats ass about human life.

And when the AI finally takes over, you won't likely even be able to find slave labor either. Machines will inevitably replace all productive activity... but who will they really serve? Us... the peasants who have no income or welfare? Hahahahaha! The elites! And that's that. Everyone gets squeezed out... no more fair competition... no more prosperity... no more freedome... and certainly no mercy for the goyim plebs like us.

THIS IS THE WORLD YOU WELCOME? WELL ENJOY!

I never said I have evidence or proof the sex dolls have digital components, I just said look out for them. You'd have to open them up and take a look inside. Personally anything new I don't trust anyway, I usually stock up on decades old electronics from flea markers, thrift shops, used appliance stores, garage sales, antique shops, good will, etc. any chance I get because I can't trust all the new shit in the stores: over 50% of modern shit is digitalized in one way or another and is used to spy on consumers.

Tyranny On Steriods: Russian Military Creating Genetically-modified ‘Super Soldiers’ That Cannot Feel Pain, Fear or Mercy Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 15:42:56 Id: eb247a [Preview] No. 2665 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Russian President Vladimir Putin has unveiled an army of genetically-modified ‘super soldiers’ that he says are more deadly than nuclear bombs.

Putin warned a crowd of students that scientists in Russia are on the brink of breaking the genetic code and are on the verge of creating something “worse than a nuclear bomb.”

Express.co.uk reports: In a shocking speech yesterday, the Russian leader suggested that his world could soon seen sci-fi super-human soldiers who cannot feel pain or fear.

President Putin said that science is moving at such a fast pace that the world is running out of the time to develop regulation around these eerie advances.

The Russian leader revealed that the possibility of “creating a human with predesigned characteristics” was already around the corner.

Speaking to a youth festival in Sochi, Mr Putin said: “A man has the opportunity to get into the genetic code created by either nature, or as religious people would say, by the God.

“All kinds of practical consequences may follow. One may imagine that a man can create a man not only theoretically but also practically.

“He can be a genius mathematician, a brilliant musician or a soldier, a man who can fight without fear, compassion, regret or pain.

“As you understand, humanity can enter, and most likely it will in the near future, a very difficult and very responsible period of its existence.

This is propaganda from a shady source, but let's break it down.
>‘super soldiers’ that he says are more deadly than nuclear bombs.
For what reason? Soldiers are for conquering and occupying, they are very inefficient for total annihilation that nuclear bombs provide.
>the Russian leader suggested that his world could soon seen sci-fi super-human soldiers who cannot feel pain or fear.
Yes, fellow comrade soon all of us will have more bread than we can imagine. Nothing concrete, just seems like fear mongering.
>President Putin said that science is moving at such a fast pace that the world is running out of the time to develop regulation around these eerie advances.
Breakthroughs are no longer as they were decades ago. It's all team-based and incredibly slow. And whatever these teams are working on is going to be leaked/stolen and there'll be other competitors. The US sure as hell would love to get their diabetic fingers on the e-peen jelqer that is super soldiers.
>Speaking to a youth festival in Sochi, Mr Putin said: “A man has the opportunity to get into the genetic code created by either nature, or as religious people would say, by the God.
I just got back from this festival and he didn't say this. What he said was just regular propaganda how the students were the future of the world and were to achieve many great things by fostering the connections they made there. Inb4 this is a crafty profiling scheme to unmask posters of this board.

AntiFA Leader Shayne Hunter Defects, Admits Soros Funds AntiFA To Start Civil Wars Against Sovereign Nations Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 23:30:18 Id: ece04b [Preview] No. 2689 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The founder of domestic terrorist organization Antifa has admitted that George Soros helped turn them into terrorists “more dangerous than ISIS.”

Shayne Hunter, the founder of Antifa Australia, says he quit the radical far-left group after 4 years after he realised that “Soros was using us to start a civil war in every country in the world”.

In an interview with News.com.au, Shayne describes his experience: https://archive.fo/MVK1t

I got radicalised in Sydney. I was originally concerned about Western intervention in Syria. Radical left wing people dominated rallies and I started to associate with them more. My so-called ‘normal’ friends drifted away.

We would hang out at an anarchist library in Sydney. Here a bunch of people on the dole gather enough money to rent out the space and run a bookshop. It’s like extremist networking.

I came to believe that war was a symptom of bigger systems at play in society and they were the real enemy, like white supremacy and patriarchy. Antifa believe these systems need to be smashed through a process of ‘de-platforming’ to save the world. People who don’t necessarily agree on everything are united to attack their common enemy — anyone in the right wing of politics.

This micro-society became my life for four years.

They believe historically their roots were fighting Nazi oppression. They run a website which is updated every couple of weeks with a hit list of right wing names. They believe if these people are allowed to speak, society will suffer. So, they must be pushed back.

There is no mission statement, rather, it’s a dangerous rhetoric. There are a lot of very damaged people who are drawn to it.

I was ideologically possessed for four years. I would speak louder on public transport so people could hear me speak, hoping they would hear my message.

The radical left of Antifa presents itself as being about compassion and empathy; it’s a Trojan horse. All conversations are about entitlement and rights, not responsibility. When these people talk about freedom, they really mean freedom from responsibility.

Often the people who are drawn to this cult don’t have a strong identity outside it. I’m not a psychologist but, like ISIS, it gives people a sense of belonging to something and having purpose.

A ‘social justice warrior’ cringe video appeared on my social media feed. I didn’t watch it at first. A couple of weeks later it popped up again so I pressed play. It was like seeing the entire cult through an outside lens. It woke me up. I realised that everything I had started to believe was wrong.

You don’t know humiliation until you’ve left a cult; I wasted four years of my life.

I cut ties over time. I’m still in contact with some ex-cult members but I don’t see anyone who’s still active.

In my 20-something generation, social media plays the role of a 24/7 preacher — like a pocket preacher. Each day you’re being validated by the echo chamber on your phone.

Antifa would say there is nothing good about Australian society. Their minds project that belief, and everything is filtered through this ideology.

US Military Plans To Man Snowflakes With Remote Control Killer Drones & Robots Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 15:40:07 Id: 35391e [Preview] No. 2664 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
From Vice "In the near future, US Army and Marine Corps infantry squads could march into battle behind swarms of hundreds of flying and crawling drones.

At least, that's the plan. On October 12, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency—the Pentagon's fringe-science wing—asked robot-developers to submit ideas for tactics and technologies that could allow small infantry units to deploy swarms of 250 or more robots.

The swarms must function "in built-up areas up to eight city blocks in size over mission durations of up to six hours," according to Dr. Timothy Chung, the program manager

My comment: This is going to lead to American military sitting in trailers, remote controlling drones and crawlers, all lethal, in neighborhoods where basically everyone gets killed.

If you ever wanted to see a future where milennials can handle battle, this is it, and if this is implemented properly it will eventually lead to stay at home warriors, who kill from the couch while viewing the battle from a 4k screen.

This tech will lead to a war scenario where a single military cargo jet can simply fly over an area that is slated for annihilation, drop 10,000 lethal drones, that then hook up with their controllers for a day of killing, and return to a central controlled location to be recharged and ready to go the next day. A perfect coward's war. Yes, a snowflake could handle that.

In the case of a crawler, at the end of the day the main module could simply detach from cheap wheels or tracks it was coupled to, deploy propellers, and fly off, leaving the wheels, which are worthless, behind.

The drones could go everywhere, peeking in windows and shooting people while they eat at the table, all at no risk to the operator. This could easily be deployed in the U.S. also, to take out dissidents as they post stuff to the internet the shadow state does not like. No trace of what happened left behind.

European Single-payer Healthcare! Govt To Ban Obese Patients and Smokers From Having Surgery, Death To Increase! Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 17:32:23 Id: 085363 [Preview] No. 2671 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
European Healthcare NHS will now ban obese patients and smokers from have surgery done A serious policy proposal in the UK would ban many surgeries for smokers and the obese. From the Telegraph story:

The NHS will ban patients from surgery indefinitely unless they lose weight or quit smoking, under controversial plans drawn up in Hertfordshire…

In recent years, a number of areas have introduced delays for such patients – with some told operations will be put back for months, during which time they are expected to try to lose weight or stop smoking.

But the new rules, drawn up by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Hertfordshire, say that obese patients “will not get non-urgent surgery until they reduce their weight” at all, unless the circumstances are exceptional.

The criteria also mean smokers will only be referred for operations if they have stopped smoking for at least eight weeks, with such patients breathalysed before referral.

Ah, single-payer healthcare in action!

The restrictions mean those with a Body Mass Index of 30 or more will be set targets to reduce their weight by 10 per cent over nine months, while those with a BMI over 40 will be told to cut their weight by 15 per cent, report The Telegraph.

The new criteria also means smokers will only be referred for operations if they’ve quit smoking for at least eight weeks and will introduce a forced breathalysed test before their referral.

Well this will surely go ignored. No wonder humans repeat the same mistakes.



The Irony! Swedish Journalist Who Called Assange A "Rapist" Now Facing Criminal Charges For Sexual Assault Reader 10/24/2017 (Tue) 16:15:11 Id: 5d1edb [Preview] No. 2667 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A journalist with Swedish daily Aftonbladet who reportedly referred to WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange as a “criminal” is himself in hot water. He’s accused of rape and sexual assault – including of underage girls.

The allegations against Fredrik Virtanen, who also hosts his own talk show on Swedish TV8, emerged as part of the #MeToo social media campaign. The campaign, which surged in popularity after the sex scandal surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, encourages women to speak up to share their experiences of sexual harassment.

The first accusation against Virtanen was made by Swedish feminist activist, journalist and actress Cissi Wallin, who claimed last week that Virtanen raped her back in 2006, when she was 21. In 2010, Wallin said an “older media man with power” had sexually assaulted her and wanted to push his genitals into her mouth, but did not give his name, Nyheter24 reported.

“I cannot be quiet anymore,” Wallin said in her Instagram post. The journalist added that she should “have screamed his name long ago,” but was silent as the journalist’s representative called her “bosses and so on, and dubbed me a ‘crazy mythomaniac.’”

Virtanen himself was a critic of Assange over rape charges, which were subsequently dropped. But before the case was abandoned, the journalist had referred to the whistleblower as “criminal” and said he seemed to become “more and more cracked,” according to Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR).

Swedish crime writer Camilla Läckberg voiced her support to Wallin and said she was ashamed that she had also been silent for years over many other testimonies against Virtanen.

“Cissi is not alone, I’ve heard from so many others about the same man. For years. Still silence,” Läckberg wrote on Instagram.

Following the posts several more cases came into light, claiming that the journalist sexually assaulted 14, 16 and 19-year-old victims.

Fridah Jönsson who runs a podcast on contraception, stepped up to support Wallin’s accusations against Virtanen. Jönsson said that Virtanen asked if she wanted to lie with him when she was just 14, as she wrote him on Facebook. The woman attached the screenshot of the message to her Instagram post.
