Grassley Schedules Kavanaugh Vote For Friday Morning Reader 09/26/2018 (Wed) 09:15:58 Id: db57f5 [Preview] No. 12855 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Following an intense week of salacious claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has scheduled the confirmation vote for Friday morning at 9:30 a.m., following Thursday's planned testimony by both Kavanaugh and accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Thus far, Kavanaugh has been accused of groping one woman, flashing his penis to another, and participating in a gang-bang operation in college by a yet-to-be named client of attorney Michael Avenatti.

Earlier Tuesday, Chairman Grassley wrote to Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to "respectfully decline" her request to postpone Thursday's hearing, after assuring to provide Ford with a "safe, comfortable, and dignified opportunity to testify."

"Besides being unfair to Dr. Ford, whose attorneys asked for a public hearing one week ago, delaying the hearing further would be unfair to Judge Kavanaugh and his family. He has asked the Committee repeatedly for the chance to testify as soon as possible. He has categorically denied the allegations that have been made public. He did this in a transcribed interview with several Senate investigators."

Kavanaugh appeared on Fox News Monday night to emphatically deny decades-old sexual misconduct allegations levied at him by several women at the 11th hour - telling host Martha MacCallum that he wasn't "going to let false accusations drive me out of this process..." and also that he was a virgin until after high school.

Twitter Suspends James Woods Over Conservative Tweet Exposing Feminism Reader 09/24/2018 (Mon) 15:28:56 Id: b6fdf8 [Preview] No. 12835 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Actor James Woods has slammed Twitter after the social media giant locked him out of his account over a satirical meme he posted two months ago.

Twitter told Woods that he had violated the platform’s rules with the meme, which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign, and was asked to delete the offending tweet.

Woods said he would not delete the tweet, saying, “Free speech is free speech — it’s not Jack Dorsey’s version of free speech.”

The hoax meme claimed to come from the Democrats and encouraged men not to vote in the midterm elections. Woods acknowledged the meme was probably not real when he shared it, but none the less Twitter told him it still had the “potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election”.

Zero Hedge reports: https://archive.fo/B7tw7

The offending tweet from July 20, features three millennial-aged men with “nu-male smiles” and text that reads “We’re making a Woman’s Vote Worth more by staying home.” Above it, Woods writes “Pretty scary that there is a distinct possibility this could be real. Not likely, but in this day and age of absolute liberal insanity, it is at least possible.”

According to screenshots provided by an associate of Woods’, Twitter directed the actor to delete the post on the grounds that it contained “text and imagery that has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election.”

In other words, James Woods, who has approximately 1.72 million followers, was suspended because liberals who don’t identify as women might actually take the meme seriously and not vote.

Doesn't matter if he's into a conspiracy no matter how kooky it may be. The fact he and others are being censored off the platform is a problem and just goes to show Twitter don't want alternative viewpoints being expressed. This is why people are seeking alternatives and just you watch: this will divide the whole web up someday. Certain groups will go where they "fit in and belong" while other groups go into their safe spaces and image boards might become the last place people can speak freely among each other even when they have different viewpoints (well, hell, the image boards are somewhat divided up as well come to think of it). The internet is being divided up. It may be a great thing, but it might end up being divided into a million different echo chambers.

Thats a good point. Maybe the internet was meant to be all broken up into fragments and groups. People should seek alternatives where they're allowed to post their views and desired content, that's why I linked to some alternatives in the OP.

BTW, P2P file sharing platforms are still my favorite because anyone can go on those and share anything they like. And anyone can pick and choose what to download. I guess thats what I expect from corporate social media platforms but its too high of an expectation.

IRS Employee's Contempt For Constitutional Law Exposed In Project Veritas Deep State Sting Reader 09/25/2018 (Tue) 22:49:25 Id: 0f0b92 [Preview] No. 12852 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Project Veritas has released the fourth story in a series of undercover reports which unmask the Deep State. This report features two Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials who candidly discuss the IRS’s unfair treatment of conservative non-profit groups. The two officials in the report are Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC.

Sheehy boasts about and appears to justify former disgraced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was mired in scandal for losing tens of thousands of emails regarding the Lois Lerner controversy. The Lois Lerner controversy occurred in 2013 and involved revelations showing that the IRS unfairly scrutinized conservative groups.

In a separate meeting, attorney Semasek discloses to Project Veritas multiple times that “mistakes were made,” during the 2013 scandal when conservative non-profits were targeted when applying for tax-exempt status.

He repeated that mistakes were made:

SEMASEK: “… and that was bad. I think, from what people tell me, that really know about, there were mistakes made, but the problem with what happened… And again, there were mistakes made, and I think probably some people that were advised against conservative groups did make some mistakes.”

Sheehy, like individuals featured in the previous reports in this series, is also a member of a political activist group. Sheehy implies that he abuses his work benefits, including paid time off and sick days in order to engage in socialist activism for Austin Democratic Socialists of America.

SHEEHY: “I will say, I just really like the benefits. I get a lot of paid time off and sick days. So, like, for DSA stuff, I can just honestly… I will just stay late for a period. So, I will just call in for the next day.”

SHEEHY: “I mean, as long as like the manager doesn’t find out and you don’t explicitly say “hey I’m calling in sick to do Democratic Socialist of America work” then I mean like yeah. You know, you just gotta, you just gotta like sort of manage, you know, when and where you’re like doing, like, the work you do.”

Sheehy reveals there are more socialist activists at the IRS, referring to a friend of his who works on national communications for the Democratic Socialists of America, as well as writing bylaws for the political organization.

SHEEHY: “My friend Chris, like he does a lot of like tech stuff. He even runs the f**kin’, I was looking over his shoulder once at the electoral forum and I noticed that he actually is on the national social media working group. So, he helps run the national twitter account. He also runs our local twitter account. He also is one that does all the bylaws and stuff…. he also works for the IRS.”

Sheehy remarks about his disdain for the Constitution of the United States.

BOOM! Sweden Parliament Dismisses Pro-EU Prime Minister Löfven Reader 09/25/2018 (Tue) 16:43:12 Id: 50f468 [Preview] No. 12851 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Significantly, it was historic President Trump critic and former Swedish PM Mr Carl Bildt who announced the news on Twitter, stating: “First time ever in Sweden the Parliament dismisses a sitting government. PM Löfven dismissed, but remains in caretaker functions until a new government is formed.”

Mr Bildt rose to fame last year when he criticized the US President for predicting that Sweden would have problems with its immigration population after having admitted so many since 2015. In the last election, the anti-immigrant party Sweden Democrats took nearly 20% of the vote.

Yes, Sweden, one of the EU’s ultimate socialist paradises has seen its leftwing government Prime Minister just voted out of office for the first time ever after he lost the general election just two weeks ago.

It will now be up to the leader of the Sweden Moderates, Mr Ulf Kristersson, to form a government.

He has two choices, either try to form a government with the leftwing bloc with all political parties except for the Sweden Democrats in a grand coalition (however it then would become quite certain that the next election they would get even more votes if you do not execute their policy proposals), or, as happened in Austria, form a government of conservatives with the rightwing nationalist party.


The move means Löfven, whose centre-left bloc won 144 seats in parliament on 9 September to the centre-right’s 143, will have to step down eventually but will stay on in a caretaker capacity until a new administration can be formed, which could take weeks.

The speaker of the parliament, Andreas Norlén, is expected to meet the leaders of the eight parties represented in Sweden’s Riksdag over the next few days to determine who is best placed to try to piece together the country’s next government.

Most analysts expect Norlén to first approach Ulf Kristersson, the leader of the Moderate party, the largest member of the four-party centre-right Alliance.

Good! Merkel Suffers Huge Blow After Her Candidate For Parliamentary Leader Unexpectedly Voted Out Reader 09/25/2018 (Tue) 15:49:18 Id: b824eb [Preview] No. 12849 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just days after a scandal involving Germany's top spy threatened to tear apart Angela Merkel coalition, moments ago Germany's chancellor suffered another major blow to her reputation, when her ally, and preferred candidate for Bundestag Caucus Leader, Volker Kauder was unexpectedly voted out of office as the influential head of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group after 13 years on the job.

He was defeated by deputy leader Ralph Brinkhaus in a 125 to 112 vote.

A journalist from Der Spiegel commented: "Merkel era slowly coming to an end".

Good! Italy Begins Deporting Radicalized Towel Heads And The EU Is Furious Reader 09/25/2018 (Tue) 14:49:16 Id: c6227a [Preview] No. 12848 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Italian parliament, where the populist parties of Mr. Matteo Salvini’s Lega Nord and Mr. Luigi Di Maio’s Five Star Movement have a majority, passed a decree which would make it easier to deport migrants and strip them of their Italian citizenship.

The measure now needs the backing of lawmakers and an approval of the Italian Senate but given the makeup of politicians loyal to Mr. Salvini, this is seen as more of an administrative delay than anything else.

The Interior Minister and still Italy’s most popular politician, Mr. Matteo Salvini claimed the measure would be "a step forward to make Italy safer."


A radical Islamic cleric has been deported from Italy after prison officials caught him “celebrating” the death of “infidels” in a deadly jihadi terror attack.

The news of the deportation comes after Italy’s new Interior Minister Matteo Salvini vowed to deport as many migrants as possible in order to salvage Italy’s Christian heritage and traditions.

According to Il Giornale, the unnamed Muslim imam was expecting to be released from prison when guards transferred him from his cell to a repatriation center last week. Unfortunately for him, the Islamic cleric soon discovered that he had worn out his welcome from his long-suffering Italian hosts.

Instead of being released to the community after serving his sentence, the imam was taken to an airport for a direct flight from Rome to Cairo on September 19, where he was deported from Europe for “celebrating” the 2016 Berlin Christmas Market terror attack in which twelve innocent people were slaughtered.

The Tunisian imam, who had been convicted of robbery and drug dealing, was serving his sentence at Rome’s Rebibbia prison before he was caught glorifying the deadly terror attack. He was known by guards and prisoners to openly advocate for the Islamic State and jihad.

Good! Millennials Are Causing the US Divorce Rate to Plummet Reader 09/25/2018 (Tue) 14:39:54 Id: a4b86f [Preview] No. 12847 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Americans under the age of 45 have found a novel way to rebel against their elders: They’re staying married.

New data show younger couples are approaching relationships very differently from baby boomers, who married young, divorced, remarried and so on. Generation X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track. The result is a U.S. divorce rate that dropped 18 percent from 2008 to 2016, according to an analysis by University of Maryland sociology professor Philip Cohen.

Demographers already knew the divorce rate was falling, even if the average American didn’t. Their question, however, was why? And what do current trends mean for the marital prospects of today’s newlyweds?

One theory is that divorce rates are falling largely because of other demographic changes—especially an aging population. Older people are less likely to get divorced, so maybe mellowing boomers were enough to explain the trend. Cohen’s analysis of U.S. Census Bureau survey data, however, suggests something more fundamental is at work. Even when he controls for factors such as age, the divorce rate over the same period still dropped 8 percent.

“The change among young people is particularly striking,” Susan Brown, a sociology professor at Bowling Green State University, said of Cohen’s results. “The characteristics of young married couples today signal a sustained decline [in divorce rates] in the coming years.”

Young people get the credit for fewer divorces because boomers have continued to divorce at unusually high rates, all the way into their 60s and 70s. From 1990 to 2015, according to Bowling Green’s National Center for Family and Marriage Research, the divorce rate doubled for people aged 55 to 64, and even tripled for Americans 65 and older. Cohen’s results suggest this trend, called “grey divorce,” may have leveled out in the past decade, but boomers are still divorcing at much higher rates than previous generations did at similar ages.


CHEAPER LIVING! Millennials Are Flocking To Rust Belt Real Estate To Save Money, Live Better Reader 09/24/2018 (Mon) 16:33:03 Id: 634397 [Preview] No. 12838 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

As real estate prices in major U.S. cities continue to soar, some young buyers and renters have decided to take their business elsewhere. They're investing in homes in such states as Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin, experts say, in search of more affordable living and new places to plant down roots.

For decades, the part of the U.S. otherwise known as the Rust Belt has been synonymous with hard times for decades, ever since manufacturing bases like Detroit began to suffer the effects of de-industrialization. Plants closed down, jobs disappeared, and once-vibrant cities became symbols of decay.

In recent years, however, the revitalized Rust Belt economy has brought in younger workers, and made the area's real estate an attractive investment bet. The overwhelming driver of the millennial shift to the region is affordability. However, Constantine Valhouli, Director of Research for the real estate research and analytics firm NeighborhoodX, said that there's more to it than that.

Rather than just home ownership, "it is about having roots and contributing to the revival of a place that needs businesses that create jobs and create value," he said.

And slowly but surely, formerly blighted towns and cities are coming back to life, with the help of a younger class of real estate buyers. According to Paul Boomsma, president and CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (LeadingRE), the latest influx of buyers see cities as financial opportunities and places to build something new – especially with prices far below prevailing prices in big cities.

"Millennials are swiping up properties for next-to-nothing prices near downtown city areas that have completely revitalized," Boomsma said. LendingRE has listed a three-bedroom Victorian home in Mansfield, Ohio, with an asking price of $39,900.

Compared that to what Zillow data show is the median home value of nearly $700,000 in New York City and a whopping $1.3 million in San Francisco, and there's little wonder why aspiring home owners are flocking to the Rust Belt.

*updated the related tip thread today...

The gist is to go to trade school (a vocational school) and learn yourself a professional skill (much cheaper than going to some leftist/Marxist college)... finding a trade job your qualified for in a more rural low-taxed area, and mortgaging a cheap ass home (home prices can be very cheap in many areas outside major cities). By doing this you can live comfortably and save up money (I also include some tips how to save more of your earnings too and avoid waste). Kikes hate these tips because they want you strapped to an insolvent system and in debt... but it doesn't have to be that way.

No middle class home should cost more than 200K, even that is high priced. You can find much cheaper homes depending where you look, but you need to research jobs that are available and likely learn a trade before settling down.

Russia To Supply S-300s to Syrian Army After Recent Israeli Attack Reader 09/24/2018 (Mon) 18:47:05 Id: 977700 [Preview] No. 12839 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Within two weeks Russia will deliver to Damascus an S-300 air defense system, previously suspended on a request by Israel. It comes as part of response to the downing of a Russian Il-20 plane amid an Israeli air raid on Syria.

Moscow accused Tel Aviv of failing to inform Russia about its impending attack on targets in Syria, which resulted in a downing of the Russian electronic warfare aircraft by Syrian return fire. Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the defense ministry to take several measures in response to the incident, the ministry said in a statement on Monday.

Arguably, the most concerning thing for Israel will be the delivery to Syria of an S-300 anti-aircraft system, which will boost Syria’s capabilities to deny Israel access to its airspace. The system was purchased by Damascus several years ago, but never delivered.

“In 2013 on a request from the Israeli side we suspended the delivery to Syria of the S-300 system, which was ready to be sent with its Syrian crews trained to use it,” the statement said.

“The situation has changed, and not due to our fault.”

The S-300 is a relatively modern system capable of engaging targets at the range of up to 250 km. Syria’s current anti-aircraft systems are older models that didn’t stop Israel from attacking targets on Syrian territory.

The Russian military will also supply better control systems to Syrian Air Defense Troops, “which are only supplied to the Russian Armed Forces,” defense chief Sergey Shoigu elaborated. This will allow integration of Syrian and Russian military assets, allowing the Syrian to have better targeting information.
