Be aware an angry faggot from 8chan may start flooding this board at any given time. He was rudely sliding all the news I posted last night, so I simply told anons to check the archive.fo link here for updates and this asshole saw it. So he just wants revenge, over simply defending myself and the threads I worked on. The dude is a top notch A1 asshole. If you got rid of all his threads I could really care less.

These so far. And anything with crabs, raccoons, propane, Hank Hill, or spiderman is him too. He'll post these moronic memes obsessively quite often, just to slide all the other news threads I might add. There a only a few links from him I didn't include because they are actual news, surprisingly.

Facebook Now Censoring Talk About Politics And Religion At Work Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 16:28:42 Id: 404c8f [Preview] No. 13746 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

It's not just social media users that are being censored, now its social media employees.

According to a new report by Business Insider, citing an internal company memo, Facebook is now telling its employees what they can, and can't, talk about at work.

Business Insider reviewed an internal company memo where Facebook's CTO claims to have put together "a set of ground rules for open and respectful communication at work, and a central moderation model."

The memo states: "We're keeping it simple with three main guidelines: Don't insult, bully, or antagonize others. Don't try to change someone's politics or religion. Don't break our rules about harassing speech and expression."

Facebook uses Workplace, an app that allows chat, for internal communication. Employees use it for work related projects, but also occasionally for small talk. The app is targeted as the main area where these new rules will apply.

The memo continues: "These guidelines apply to all work communications including Workplace, email, chat, tasks, posters, whiteboards, chalkboards, and face-to-face. Since Workplace is where most of these discussions happen, we are investing engineering resources there."

Facebook has also made it easier for employees to report one another when somebody says something that "offends" someone else. The memo continued:

"We are making it easier to report posts and comments, and those reports will go straight to a trained moderator who'll moderate as needed. We're also developing more tools to help proactively."

INVASION INCOMING PART 18: New Migrant Invasion Hits Mexico, Aimed Towards US Border Reader 01/19/2019 (Sat) 02:32:44 Id: 437a4f [Preview] No. 13755 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
TRUMP. NOW OR NEVER.
RELATED: >>>/endpol/1122

Hundreds of Central Americans entered Mexico illegally as the latest migrant caravan to set its sights on the United States began crossing the Mexican-Guatemalan border en masse Friday.

Not content to wait five days for the humanitarian visas Mexico is offering them, several hundred migrants took to make-shift rafts to cross the Suchiate River, which forms the frontier, or snuck across the loosely guarded border bridge overnight, AFP correspondents said.

That could trigger a new Twitter firestorm from US President Donald Trump, who has urged Mexico to halt such caravans, and who tweeted early Friday: "Another big Caravan heading our way. Very hard to stop without a Wall!"

Caravans of migrants hoping to find safety in numbers have taken center stage in the raging US debate over Trump's proposed border wall, which has led to a government shutdown that is now the longest in history.

Around 2,000 migrants are traveling in the latest caravan -- smaller than the one that swelled to 7,000 migrants late last year, leading Trump to warn of an "invasion" by "criminals" and "thugs" and send thousands of troops to the US-Mexican border.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) has stunned the Democratic party by supporting Trump’s proposed border wall, and claiming that walls “protect people.”

US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) apprehended a previously convicted and subsequently deported child sex offender when he tried to cross the US-Mexican border together with the illegal migrants from the caravan, according to a report by The Daily Caller.

The CBP camera surveillance team noticed a group of 24 individuals trying to cross the border illegally not far away from a port of entry in San Luis, Arizona, the report says. The group immediately surrendered when approached by CBP agents.

Both were previously convicted in the US for sexual offenses with minors and deported home, the Border Patrol says.

President Donald Trump said he’ll be making a “major announcement” on the government shutdown and the southern border on Saturday afternoon as the standstill over his border wall continues into its fifth week.

The White House declined to provide details late Friday about what the president would be announcing. But Trump was not expected to sign the national emergency declaration he’s been threatening as an option to circumvent Congress, according to two people familiar with the planning.

Instead, Trump was expected to propose the outlines of a new deal that the administration believes could potentially pave the way to an end to the shutdown, according to one of the people. They were not authorized to discuss the announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Prominent Democrat Donor Indicted On Sex Abuse Charges Involving Minor Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 20:19:49 Id: fa0604 [Preview] No. 13754 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Prominent Democrat donor Terry Bean was indicted earlier this month with sex crimes involving a child younger than 16.

The indictment states that the alleged victim was a minor when the incident took place in September 2013.

Bean pleaded not guilty to two counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse in Lane County court on Thursday.

Fox News reports: https://archive.fo/60nOI

Bean was arraigned Thursday on the charges, TV station KGW8 reported. He pleaded not guilty and was taken into custody at Lane County jail in Oregon. He was released Thursday and told KGW8 he was “innocent.”

The indictment was filed on Jan. 4 but made public following the arraignment.

Bean, a gay rights activist who donated almost $70,000 of his own money to former President Barack Obama’s campaign, was charged with sexual abuse in 2014 but the case was dismissed after the alleged victim did not testify. Prosecutors refiled the charges after this, court records stated, according to The Oregonian. The “alleged victim is not named in the new indictment” but the dates are similar to the previous charges, KGW8 noted.

Bean, a real estate developer, and his former boyfriend, Kiah Lawson, allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old boy in a Eugene, Oregon, hotel in September 2013. They allegedly used the app Grindr to arrange the sexual encounter. Lawson was also charged but his case was dismissed.

Bean’s lawyer, Derek Ashton said in an emailed statement to KGW8: “This case is a continuation of the 2014 blackmail scam by [Lawson] and others, including today’s accuser. Mr. Bean is the victim and he has paid enough. We will see them in court.”

Malaysian Government To Goldman Sachs: Pay Us $7.5 Billion And We Will Drop Criminal Charges Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 19:21:24 Id: 19d6ad [Preview] No. 13751 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Malaysian government has a message for Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon: Your disingenuous, blame-deflecting apology for Goldman's role in one of the biggest financial frauds ever perpetrated in Asia isn't going to cut it.

According to Bloomberg, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng told reporters on Friday that Malaysian prosecutors might consider dropping the criminal charges brought last month against the bank, several Asian subsidiaries and two of its employees (who have also been indicted in the US) if the bank agrees to pay back the total amount that the Malaysian government believes was looted during the fraud.

That amount? A staggering $7.5 billion.

"Goldman Sachs should understand the agony and the trauma suffered by the Malaysian people as a result of the 1MDB scandal," Lim said in the administrative capital of Putrajaya. "An apology is just not sufficient. Not enough. There must be the necessary reparations and compensations."

Earlier this week, Solomon apologized to the Malaysian people during an earnings call with analysts, where he blamed senior banker Tim Leissner (who is now believed to be cooperating with federal authorities to testify about the bank's "culture of corruption") for the scandal and claimed Malaysia was “defrauded by many individuals" who - as was implied - just happened to work at Goldman Sachs.

Lim characterized Solomon's apology as "insufficient", presumably because media reports have revealed that senior Goldman execs, including former CEO Lloyd Blankfein blithely ignored concerns raised by the bank's compliance department and did everything in their power to court Malaysia's business (Blankfein himself was involved in several meetings with then-Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is now awaiting trial on corruptoin charges, and fugitive financier Jho Low, who is believed to have masterminded the scheme).

Goldman earned $600 million in fees on the $6.5 billion in bonds it underwrote for 1MDB, which was launched by Razak as a sovereign wealth fund intended to fund public works projects.

Crazed raccoon captured after pair of attacks that left woman bloodied, dog injured Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 01:50:07 Id: 13b0e2 [Preview] No. 13738 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Officials on Thursday captured a raccoon that attacked an 83-year-old woman and likely sunk its teeth into a dog within less than 24 hours in the same Monmouth County neighborhood.

The raccoon was set to be euthanized and tested for rabies after the pair of attacks in Belmar, said Monmouth County SPCA Chief of Law Enforcement Ross Licitra.

In the first reported incident, a borough resident was on her back porch when the animal lunged at the woman, biting her hand, back and ankle Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. A neighbor reportedly used a shovel fight off the vicious mammal before it fled.

Some witnesses initially reported TWO raccoons in the vicinity but the Animal Control and Port Authority both deny this. A local artist shared his rendition of the second raccoon according to eyewitness accounts.

Foxconn Cuts 50,000 Jobs In Asia Due To iPhone Sale Slowdown Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 16:27:10 Id: 860f97 [Preview] No. 13745 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In the latest indication that the slump in sales of Apple's most recent batch of iPhones isn't a transitory trend, Nikkei Asia Review on Friday reported that Foxconn, one of Apple's biggest and most important iPhone suppliers, is cutting seasonal staff more swiftly than in previous years, a sign that it is bracing for weak sales in the months ahead as the industry suffers its worst downturn in 10 years.

Normally, the 50,000 contract workers who have been let go at Foxconn's most important factory in Zhengzhou would have been kept around for a few more months, as the manufacturer gradually reduced its employee head count.

The report comes after Apple announced plans to cut iPhone production for the second time in two months.

Around 50,000 contract workers have been let go since October at Foxconn Technology Group's most important iPhone factory at Zhengzhou, in China's Henan Province, according to an industry source familiar with the situation. Normally, the contracts of these workers would be renewed every month from August until mid- to late January, when the workforce is traditionally scaled back for the slow iPhone production season.

The depth of the cuts isn't deeper than in previous years, it's just happening much earlier than expected, as many workers were asked to leave before year-end as expectations for holiday sales slumped.

Bad! Norway Adopts Totalitarian GPS-based Carbon Tax, Despots' Wet Dream Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 16:26:21 Id: e24186 [Preview] No. 13744 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Norwegian Data Protection Authority is now arguing that GPS based taxation, for the amount of kilometers driven by car, can be done within 5-6 years!

Norwegians trust the government way too much, because they believe that this system will eliminate the need for road tax, fuel tax, toll roads and reduce the cost of car insurance.

No way will the tax be reduced! GPS based taxation is a governments dream! Who is to stop them from issuing parking fees or speeding tickets?

Norway also has a high number of electric cars, and an electric car is sold without any tax or VAT, has reduced road tax, free of reduced toll road passage and does not contribute to fuel taxation. With GPS active, the government can finally collect taxes from electric cars without the messy environmentalists meddling.

In the worst case, a corrupt government can use the system against its people to create implications, push the burden of proof over to a troublesome citizen, in court.

Norway may be a great country regards to statistics, but will be some kind of self-imposed totalitarianism if this nonsense continues. Stay away from Norway if you cherish your hard-earned cash!

The political-economic system post-World War II has been a socialist driven agenda. “Vote for me and I will give you other people’s money.”

This system cannot be sustained when those in power have promised themselves pensions. As government workers retire, they need to be replaced. The growth rate of government has started to explode. Instead of looking at the problem objectively, they are simply looking from paycheck to paycheck on how to meet the next payroll. This leads them to become more and more aggressive in hunting things to tax. Any rational person would look at this economic model and see it leads to massive civil unrest.

They pretend that socialism is to help people, but they come first. As this gets far worse, nothing trickles down to the people.

BREAKING! Ruth Ginsburg on Deathbed with Pneumonia, Set To Retire Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 16:25:21 Id: 2875fc [Preview] No. 13743 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has contracted pneumonia and is fighting for her life, according to reports.

In September, The Santa Monica Observer was the first to report that Ginsburg had developed cancer.

Left-leaning so-called ‘fact-checker’ Snopes immediately attempted to discredit the story, labelling it “false” and stopping its spread on social media. It turns out, Snopes was wrong.

Now that very same outlet has discovered that Bader Ginsburg is currently battling for her life after recently contracting pneumonia, fueling rumors that Ginsburg is set to retire before the end of this month.

The Santa Monica Observer reports: https://archive.fo/hv6ab

As any reader of the Santa Monica Observer knew last September, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed lung cancer. The 85 year old Supreme Court Justice had surgery as quietly as possible on December 22, 2018.

Following surgery, she has developed complications including pneumonia.

Pneumonia often afflicts elderly post surgery patients in the US, since antibiotics have resulted in Multi Resistant Strains of the lung infection.

The left and the main stream media have tried to put on a brave face as Ginsburg missed three straight days of argument this week, interviewing cancer doctors to say that she would recover.

'McJesus' sculpture to be removed from museum after violent protest Reader 01/18/2019 (Fri) 02:03:56 Id: aabe07 [Preview] No. 13739 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hundreds of Arab Christians demonstrated at the museum last week to call for the sculpture's removal, the Times of Israel and Associated Press reported. According to the AP, police said protesters threw a firebomb at the museum and stones that wounded three police officers. Police used tear gas and stun grenades in response, per the AP.

According to the Guardian,Arab Christians only account for 2 percent of Israel's population.

Museum director Nissim Tal told the AP that the backlash surprised him given that the exhibit had been on display for months. The work's loan began in June, per the agreement Kalisch Rotem tweeted.

The museum's website says the exhibit, called "Sacred Goods," "focuses on the responses of contemporary artists to issues of religion and faith in the contemporary global reality, which is dominated by the consumer culture."

The museum described Leinonen's work and others in the exhibit as "subversive" and "provocative works that address the collaboration between religious systems and the consumer culture."

The artist told the Jerusalem Post earlier this week that he didn't intend for the sculpture to be shown in Haifa.

The protests "came to me as an upsetting surprise, particularly because my work is in the exhibition against my wishes," Leinonen told the newspaper.

Leinonen also said that he had asked the museum to remove the work and that he supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, or BDS, movement – aimed at pressuring Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories.

Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev had also called for the work's removal, but the museum had resisted, citing freedom of expression.
