Main news poster here: Over the next few days I'm going on a trip to see some relatives so I'll be gone and won't be able to post any news for a while. Just want the BO and other readers to know that, maybe you guys can keep this board alive and going by posting some news.

I would also highly appreciate seeing an update on the Brazil election when I get back here. That election will be on the 28th, and I won't be here to report that. I'll post some news updates today (the ones I couldn't post because endchan was under DDoS attack) and tomorrow I'm gone.

I would also appreciate very much if someone were to keep tabs on the invasion situation at the border. If the US govt/military stands down, let us know about their treason. Unfortunately I likely won't be here to report it.

Bad! Backstabbing RINO Cuckservatives Propose Gun Ban Bill Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 15:54:24 Id: f24590 [Preview] No. 13258 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
H.R.6747 is a Republican-backed anti-gun bill that would put a so-called "safety grant" program in place, effectively providing funding to states for the implementation of GVRO/ERPO programs.

GVROs/ERPOs result in confiscation of firearms without due process, and this bill would encourage ALL states to adopt such programs at the expense of taxpayers like yourself.

This dangerous, anti-gun bill MUST be stopped, so we need your help.

Commiefornia Democrat Calls For Mass Arrests of American Gun Owners, Nuking Communities That Resist Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 14:53:48 Id: 492a2e [Preview] No. 13255 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just days after taking back the House, a Democratic Congressmen has proposed outlawing "military-style semi-automatic assault weapons" and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.

In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

THIS IS NO JOKE: https://archive.fo/0H7EA

Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons - and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”

As NBC News reports, this is a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms; as in the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as 'gun confiscation', a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.

And sure enough Swalwell's egotistical over-reach - going full "Australia" - prompted anger across social media. But it was one particular thread that caught our eye...

John Cardillo, 'America Talks Live' host on Newsmax, tweeted in response: "Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state. These people are dangerously obsessed with power."

Foreigners Dump US Treasuries As They Liquidate A Record Amount Of US Stocks Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 14:53:04 Id: 9594b5 [Preview] No. 13254 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/elYwR

Earlier this week, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach held his latest webcast with investors in which he warned that as a result of rising hedging costs, US Treasury bonds have become increasingly unattractive to foreign buyers. This can be seen in the chart below which shows the yield on the 10Y US TSY unhedged, and also hedged into Yen and Euros. In the latter two cases, the yield went from over 3%, to negative as a result of the gaping rate differential between the Fed and ECB or BOJ.

This is also why, as the next chart from Gundlach showed, foreign holdings of US Treasurys have been declining in recent years, and dropped to just over 36% as a percentage of total holdings, the lowest in over a decade, as domestic holdings of US paper have risen to just shy of 50%, and near all time highs.

Which brings us to today's latest monthly TIC data which showed that, as Gundlach would expect, the holdings of the two largest foreign US creditors, China and Japan, declined to multi year low.

As shown in the chart below, China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to the lowest level since mid-2017 as the world’s second-largest economy sold US reserves to stabilize the yuan which has been depreciating in recent months due to the ongoing trade war.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries declined for a fourth month to $1.151 trillion in September, from $1.165 trillion in August, a $14 billion decline. Despite the drop, China remained the biggest foreign creditor to the U.S., followed by Japan whose Treasury holdings also dropped by $2 billion to $1.028 trillion, the lowest since 2011.

Investors have been searching for clues whether China is dumping its vast holding of U.S. Treasuries to retaliate against U.S. tariffs, though Beijing has given no indication it’s doing so; meanwhile while the TIC data is relatively accurate, it tends to be revised rather materially which is why it is certainly possible that China's real holdings, when adjusted for valuation and currency changes, are far lower.

Of course, instead of selling Treasurys, China may have decided to hold on to its reserves and allow the yuan to depreciate against the USD, but not too much: so far 7.00 has emerged as a "red line" for the PBOC. The Chinese currency has already depreciated more than 4 percent against the dollar in the past year amid signs of an economic slowdown and capital outflows. In September, China’s foreign-exchange reserves stockpile fell by $22 billion to touch the lowest level since July 2017, however much of that number was due to valuation adjustments.

Going down the list, while Russia's Treasury liquidation was well documented in June and July, two new aggressive sellers of US paper emerged in the latest data: France, whose Treasury holdings declined from $118.4BN to $97.7BN...

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is now lobbying FOR upload filters Reader 11/18/2018 (Sun) 22:31:19 [Preview] No. 13251 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
https://torrentfreak.com/article-13-youtube-ceo-is-now-lobbying-for-upload-filters-181115/

In a week which began with warnings from YouTube about the potential negative effects of the EU's Article 13 proposals, an interesting development is being reported by Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party. The vice chair of the Greens/EFA group reports that YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has visited Strasbourg and now appears to be lobbying in favor of upload filters.

As the heated debate over the EU’s controversial Article 13 proposals continues, YouTube is becoming ever more vocal.

Relatively silent in the run-up to the September vote which saw the European Parliament vote in favor of proposals put forward by Axel Voss’ EPP group, YouTube now seems very concerned over the possibility of being held liable for infringing content uploaded to its platform.

“While we support the goals of article 13, the European Parliament’s current proposal will create unintended consequences that will have a profound impact on the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people,” Wojcicki wrote in blog post earlier this week.

Wojcicki’s statement carried a stark warning that liability for YouTube under Article 13 could force the platform to block content from EU citizens. No company could take on such a financial risk, she said.

Thus far, the Article 13 debate has been polarized, with the entertainment industries hugely in favor and companies like YouTube and pro-Internet freedom groups strongly against. Now, however, a new development has created an interesting split in the ranks, with Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party, warning that YouTube is now lobbying in favor of upload filters.

As detailed in a release from Reda’s office this morning, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has made a number of statements in recent weeks that indicate that the video hosting platform is in favor of pre-filtering content before it’s made available to the public.

Of course, Google has its ContentID filtering system already in place, meaning that it would be in pole position to further dominate the video hosting space, if the filtering option is adopted by the EU.

INVASION INCOMING PART 2: National Guard Member Arrested For Smuggling Invaders Over US Border Reader 11/16/2018 (Fri) 18:30:27 Id: edb277 [Preview] No. 13249 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

INVASION INCOMING PART 1: https://archive.fo/UzxgQ

As migration-related news coverage continues to center around U.S. troops deploying to the U.S.-Mexico border, one service member has reportedly commit treason against The United States of America by smuggling Mexican migrant invaders into the United States.

California National Guardsman Pfc. Edward Jair Acosta-Avila was arrested Nov. 10 when his car was stopped near San Diego, California, about two miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, USA Today reported.

After pulling over Acosta-Avila’s Honda Accord, Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended five individuals, including three undocumented Mexican nationals who were discovered hiding under a blanket in the back seat.

This is sedition, and treason, and is a disgrace to this nation. That is all.

Well there's the fucking problem. The imbeciles hire the immigrants, then they're surprised when they smuggle more over. It doesn't matter if a Mexican's born here. If anyone thinks otherwise, fuck you. He's an immigrant.



INVASION INCOMING PART 1: Hundreds of Migrant Invaders Arrested, Thousands More Incoming Reader 11/16/2018 (Fri) 17:21:57 Id: 4efcdf [Preview] No. 13247 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As thousands of troops deployed to the southern border await the arrival of a caravan of migrants heading towards the U.S., border patrol agents in Arizona have already been busy, detaining more than 650 illegal immigrants in just two days this week.

Agents in the Yuma Sector said they detained 654 people – most reportedly being family units or unaccompanied minors from Guatemala - on Monday and Tuesday.

Officials (lie), claiming the groups of illegal immigrants are not believed to be associated with the large caravan of mostly Central American migrants that have prompted the military deployment.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday a group of 55 Central Americans waded across the Colorado River near Yuma and surrendered to agents after walking around vehicle barriers in the area.

“Larger numbers [of illegal immigrants] have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma,” a press release said.

Vinny Dulesky, the special operations supervisor for Yuma Sector public affairs, told Fox News on Thursday that the majority of the groups came in through the east side of the port of entry and had cut through their metal fences to cross in.

He said he did not know the extent of the damage to the fences, but expected fixing them could cost upwards of $1,600 for each one.

“It can get pricey,” Dulesky said.

Hundreds of people who arrived in Tijuana with the first wave of the migrant caravan planned to spend Wednesday night in a makeshift camp by the Pacific Ocean, steps from the tall border fence that separates Mexico and the United States. But those plans shifted in the evening, after local and state officials opened a temporary shelter – and about 300 local residents gathered by the encampment to demand the migrants leave the upscale Playas de Tijuana neighborhood and go to the facility.

During a confrontation that lasted more than three hours, area residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved Mexican flags. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” each time a bus transporting migrants left the beach for the temporary shelter. Mostly women and children went to the shelters, while young men from the caravan said they were determined to stay together at the beach and await the estimated 2,000 more caravan members on their way to Tijuana.

Pushing, shoving, kicking and a couple of blows broke out between masses of residents and migrants, illuminated by the crescent moon and mobile light towers, set up by authorities on the beach on the U.S. side of the border. More than three dozen municipal and federal police watched, separating people and trying to prevent the situation from devolving into fistfights and chaos.

After midnight, residents assaulted journalists, injuring at least three, according to reporters on the scene.

https://archive.fo/QhJ8d

Several hundred people from the caravan got off buses and made their way to a shelter on the Mexican side near the border to line up for food. Doctors checked those fighting colds and other ailments while several dozen migrants, mostly single men, spent the night at a Tijuana beach that is cut by a towering border wall of metal bars. Several Border Patrol agents in San Diego watched them through the barrier separating the U.S. and Mexico.

The first wave of migrants in the caravan, which became a central theme of the recent U.S. election, began arriving in Tijuana in recent days, and their numbers have grown each day. The bulk of the main caravan appeared to be about 1,100 miles (1,800 kilometers) from the border, but has recently been moving hundreds of miles a day by hitching rides on trucks and buses.

Many of the new arrivals were waiting in Tijuana for the caravan leaders to arrive and provide guidance on their immigration options to the U.S., including seeking asylum. Some said they might cross illegally.

Take Your Meds! CIA Niggers Tortured and Drugged Terror Suspects Reader 11/16/2018 (Fri) 13:53:19 Id: b7da19 [Preview] No. 13245 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has just released a new 90-page CIA report, which was provided in advance to the Associated Press (AP), shows how the government's top spy agency considered using a drug it believed might work as a truth serum and force terror suspects to spill the beans about future attacks.

The spy agency determined that a drug called Versed, a sedative frequently prescribed to reduce anxiety, was “possibly worth a try.” But according to AP, the CIA did not ask government courts to approve its use.

The secret program was called “Project Medication” -- is now disclosed in a once-classified report that was provided to the ACLU under a court's order and was released Tuesday.

The CIA report revealed the internal struggle that medical personnel working in the agency's interrogation program - routinely breached their professional ethics with the chance to save lives by preventing future attacks.

“This document tells an essential part of the story of how it was that the CIA came to torture prisoners against the law and helps prevent it from happening again,” said ACLU attorney Dror Ladin.

CIA doctors, psychologists, physician assistants, and nurses were, directly and indirectly, involved in the interrogation program from 2002 to 2007, the report said. They evaluated and monitored 97 detainees in ten secret CIA bases overseas.

The report said the CIA completely hid the drug-assisted interrogations from the Justice Department because there were “some significant ethical concerns."

The Justice Department spent months approving various forms of interrogation tactics, including sleep deprivation, confinement in small spaces and the waterboarding. It was noted the CIA’s counterterrorism team “did not want to raise another issue with the Department of Justice,” the report said.

Before the agency selected Versed, the report said government scientist studied many reports of old Soviet drug experiments as well as the CIA’s discredited MK-Ultra program from the 1950s and 1960s that involved human experimentation with LSD and other mind-altering drugs, in the attempt to obtain the holy grail of truth serums.

>The global compact comprises 23 objectives for better managing migration at local, national, regional and global levels:
>(1) Collect and utilize accurate and disaggregated data as a basis for evidence-based policies
>(2) Minimize the adverse drivers and structural factors that compel people to leave their country of origin
>(3) Provide accurate and timely information at all stages of migration
>(4) Ensure that all migrants have proof of legal identity and adequate documentation
>(5) Enhance availability and flexibility of pathways for regular migration
>(6) Facilitate fair and ethical recruitment and safeguard conditions that ensure decent work
