USSA Abandons Oil Sanctions To Avoid Owning Venezuela's Collapse Reader 08/07/2018 (Tue) 18:12:47 Id: bc6aff [Preview] No. 11649 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just more than a year ago, it was not a question of ‘if’, but ‘when.’

As Venezuela’s leftist leader Nicolas Maduro consolidated power in an election derided as a fraud by the international community, the Trump administration readied exacting sanctions on the South American nation’s oil sector.

“All options are on the table,” said a senior administration official during a July 2017 briefing with reporters, adding that sanctions could be imposed in a matter of days. “All options are being discussed and debated.”

Analysts widely expected sanctions on diluent the US was exporting to Venezuelan refineries first, followed by a prohibition, perhaps phased in over a matter of months, on imports of Venezuelan crude into the US. It was unclear if US refiners, who had long imported Venezuelan crude, would be allowed to continue under an interim “grandfathered” arrangement, but analysts mostly agreed that sanctions were coming.

At the time, the US was importing about 800,000 b/d of Venezuelan crude and the administration was mostly concerned about the impact an import embargo would have on US Gulf Coast refineries, which would need to look for new sources of heavy crude.

Oil sector sanctions from the US seemed so likely that then-US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that the administration was looking at ways to soften the impact of the sanctions once they were imposed.

“We’re going to undertake a very quick study to see: Are there some things that the US could easily do with our rich energy endowment, with the infrastructure that we already have available – what could we do to perhaps soften any impact of that?” Tillerson, the former CEO of ExxonMobil, said.

A year later, the US is importing less crude from Venezuela (about 530,300 b/d in July, according to preliminary US Customs data), but Gulf Coast refiners, particularly Valero, continue to rely on these imports.

In fact, US refiners may be importing even more, if Venezuela’s oil sector was not seemingly in a death spiral. Roughly one if every five barrels of oil imported by US Gulf Coast refiners comes from Venezuela.

By the end of 2019, Venezuelan crude oil output is expected to plummet to 700,000 b/d, making it likely that it will produce less than the US state of New Mexico.

“We’ve never seen an industry or a country collapse this fast and this hard,” said EIA analyst Lejla Villar in a recent interview with the S&P Global Platts Capitol Crude podcast. “We’ve never seen anything like this.”

The downfall of Venezuela’s chief industry, coupled with International Monetary Fund predictions that inflation in the country will skyrocket to 1 million percent by the end of this year, have created an unusual scenario, in which Maduro may even welcome US sanctions on its oil sector. As Venezuela’s economy continues to unravel, leading to surging prices and rampant hunger, Maduro could try to pin the blame on sanctions.

“If you break it, you buy it,” said George David Banks, a former international energy and environment adviser to President Trump. “The White House doesn’t want to own this crisis.”

The US has sanctioned individuals in Venezuela, including Maduro; prohibited the purchase and sale of any Venezuelan government debt, including any bonds issued by PDVSA; and banned the use of the Venezuela-issued digital currency known as the petro. But oil sector sanctions are viewed as the most powerful penalty remaining and one the Trump administration is more hesitant than ever to use.

“There’s already a humanitarian crisis, but we don’t own that, the Maduro government owns that,” Banks said. “We don’t want to lose the people of Venezuela and you don’t want to pursue a policy that jeopardizes that.”

David Goldwyn, president of Goldwyn Global Strategies and a former special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs at the US State Department, speculated that it would take extreme action, such as a military assault on a civilian rebellion, for the US to now impose oil sector sanctions. “The system is collapsing and this administration does not want to own the collapse,” Goldwyn said.

The path ahead for Venezuela’s oil sector has, likely, never been less certain. And it remains to be seen what a full collapse of an economy looks like. It is clear, however, that the US wants to avoid blame for accelerating that collapse and has abandoned, at least for now, consideration of oil sanctions.

Glyphosate SUSPENDED In Brazil Over Cancer Concerns While American Patriots Are Finding Natural Weed Killer Remedies Reader 08/07/2018 (Tue) 18:38:41 Id: ce4bf0 [Preview] No. 11651 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Upon hearing how dangerous glyphosate is, many people’s first question is why it is allowed to be sold if it is so deadly. The answer to that question, at least in the U.S., is very complex and involves a lot of money and political maneuvering. In Brazil, however, common sense appears to be prevailing as a judge in the country has suspended the use of glyphosate products.

Brazil joins a growing list of countries that have banned the toxic chemical or restricted its use. In 2013, El Salvador banned the Roundup herbicide after independent studies linked the chemical to kidney disease, cancer and other illnesses.

Belgium has banned the individual use of the chemical and voted against relicensing it in the EU last year. It was also one of six EU member countries to sign a letter asking the EU Commission to establish an exit plan for glyphosate. In addition, the city of Brussels has a “zero pesticides” policy, which means glyphosate is completely banned there.

The Netherlands has also banned the use and sale of herbicides that contain glyphosate for noncommercial use throughout the country

In Argentina, more than 400 cities and towns have passed measures that restrict the use of glyphosate. After the International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded the chemical is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” more than 30,000 healthcare professionals in the country advocated for a ban of the ingredient.

France and Germany are expected to join the list soon. Last November, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the country will ban glyphosate outright within the next three years. In January, the coalition government in Germany kicked off the process of banning glyphosate, and some retail stores in the country have already pulled Roundup and similar herbicides from their shelves.

Last month, a U.S. federal judge ruled that there was enough evidence for hundreds of lawsuits against Monsanto filed on behalf of cancer patients to proceed to trial. The lawsuits claim that Roundup caused people’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that Monsanto knew about the risk but failed to warn regulators and consumers.

If you want to use a natural and non-toxic weed killer in your garden or homestead, try some horticultural vinegar.

You can use this kind of vinegar to keep your garden free of weeds. It is effective for weed control and it is also an eco-friendly option that does not include any harmful chemicals. If you do not have horticultural vinegar, you can use regular vinegar instead. Just keep in mind that the former is a much stronger substance compared to the latter.

https://web.archive.org/web/20180807183345/https://oldworldgardenfarms.com/2018/06/03/vinegar-weed-killer/

Regular vinegar has a five percent acidity rate but horticultural vinegar has at least 20 to 30 percent acidity, or a much higher acetic acid content.

You can use regular vinegar if you are only spraying tiny weeds on your driveway or patio, but you may need to use it undiluted.

Use undiluted horticultural vinegar if you are spraying some stubborn weeds. During spring or early summer, when weeds are at their peak, you can mix vinegar weed killer in a ratio of four parts horticultural vinegar to one part water so its acidity level is high. Using this strong solution can turn the leaves of weeds brown anywhere from eight to 12 hours.

When spraying weeds in summer, weeds won’t be that much of a problem so you can use a ratio of one part horticultural vinegar with one part water. Homemade vinegar weed killer with an acidity rate of about 10 to 15 percent can help keep less aggressive weeds at bay.

If you use the regular vinegar solution, remember that it can take around 24 hours or more before you see results.

Can't Make This Shit Up: NATO To Advice Facebook How To Censor Their Users More Efficiently Reader 08/08/2018 (Wed) 00:53:24 Id: 8fc696 [Preview] No. 11660 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

This is not at all comforting: during a week that's witnessed Alex Jones' social media accounts taken down by Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google, and what appears to be a growing crackdown against alternative media figures including several prominent Libertarians, notably the Ron Paul Institute director, and the Scott Horton Show, who found their Twitter accounts suspended — we learn that the Atlantic Council is directly advising Facebook on identifying and removing "foreign interference" on the popular platform.

While the initiative was initially revealed last May through an official Facebook media release, more details of the controversial think tank's role have been revealed.

Supposedly the whole partnership is aimed at bringing more objectivity and neutrality to the process of rooting out fake accounts that pose the threat of being operated by nefarious foreign states.

And yet as a new Reuters report confirms, Facebook is now itself a top donor to the Atlantic Council, alongside Western governments, Gulf autocratic regimes, NATO, various branches of the US military, and a number of major defense contractors and corporations.

What's more is that the team of four total individuals running the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFR Lab) is headed by a former National Security Council advisor for the last four years of the Obama administration, Graham Brookie, who is also its founder.

Apparently the group's work has already been instrumental in Facebook taking action against over two dozen "suspicious pages" flagged potential foreign actors such as Russia. According to Reuters:

Facebook is using the group to enhance its investigations of foreign interference. Last week, the company said it took down 32 suspicious pages and accounts that purported to be run by leftists and minority activists. While some U.S. officials said they were likely the work of Russian agents, Facebook said it did not know for sure.

>Facebook donated an undisclosed amount to the lab in May that was enough, said Graham Brookie, who runs the lab, to vault the company to the top of the Atlantic Council’s donor list, alongside the British government.

LET THAT SINK IN!

Conclusion: all the major social media services are already State-run. The empire is now naked for all to see. They removed their clothing. They are now using their State-run monopolies to censor any form of dissent. Even worse. Politicians, mainly democrats, are pushing for State-run internet (like China has). They want total clampdown, and this only began with Alex Jones... they plan to wipe all alternative media OUT. Thats the end goal.

We must have alternatives if we want any truth to get out in the future. They must inevitably become decentralized too.

Perhaps anticipating the coming purge, InfoWars began uploading videos to REAL.video 10 days ago, and their official channel is:

So far, about 100 videos are uploaded there, with many more coming each day.

In addition, many InfoWars fans have been uploading videos to other channels on REAL.video. We think this channel is run by InfoWars fans, but it might be another InfoWars employee. This channel has 116 videos so far:

The Censorship Is Real! EndOfTheAmericanDream.com Is Being Completely Blocked by Library Internet Filters

Somebody out there definitely does not want you to see what I have to say. On Sunday I received an email that upset me greatly, and I am about to share it with you. One of my readers recently went to his local library to print off a couple of copies of one of my articles, and it turns out that EndOfTheAmericanDream.com was completely blocked by the Internet filter that the library was using. I have been writing a lot about how conservative voices are being systematically censored on the Internet, but it becomes more real when it happens to you. The following is the message that my reader sent me via email…

Michael I just had a terrifying, alarming experience at my local library in Pleasant Hill MO. I went in to get the Librarian to run off two copies of your article about the gap between the rich and poor being so great now and the Librarian couldn’t get on endoftheamericandream because your website is considered a “radical opinion” website by Homeland Security Administration and the Library!!!!!!!!!!!! She said that is according to the “filter” the Library uses. TALK ABOUT CENSORSHIP AND BOOK BURNING!!! So I couldn’t get the copies made. I have been hearing about how the internet is censoring, shadowbanning, and unsubscribing people from Conservative websites and NOW I BELIEVE IT!!!! I experienced it first hand. WOW! I thought I should let you know. Truly, we are living in Orwellian times!

Why in the world would they want to censor me?

The only “radical opinions” that I have are the exact same ones that conservatives, Christians and patriots have had ever since this country began. Unfortunately, those opinions are now considered “radical” because of how far this nation has shifted in recent years.

If our founders were around today, they would definitely be on the Internet, and without a doubt they would be getting censored too.

The next time that you are at the library, I encourage you to check if you can get to EndOfTheAmericanDream.com on a computer there. I would love to get a feel for how widespread this is around the United States. Obviously if one library is using this filtering program, it is inevitable that many others will be using it as well.

In 2018, we have seen an unprecedented effort to censor conservatives. YouTube has shut down hundreds of alternative voices, Facebook has been taking down hundreds of pages, and Twitter has been so aggressive with shadowbanning that members of Congress are up in arms about it. Extremely big names such as Alex Jones and Mike Adams are under relentless assault right now, and as you can see from this article, they are coming after the little guys too.

Odd! Criminal Thugs Wanted For Mugging Muslim GOP Campaigner Reader 08/07/2018 (Tue) 00:19:57 Id: a0a601 [Preview] No. 11629 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A well-known member of the Stanislaus County community was brutally beaten while placing campaign signs, and police are investigating it as a hate crime.

It was Tuesday night in Keyes and 50-year-old Surjit Malhi had just placed his last sign at the corner of Foote and Keyes when he came upon two men waiting for him as returned to his truck.

“As soon as I saw them they threw sand in my eyes,” Malhi said.

And that was just the beginning of the attack. The two men proceeded to beat Malhi in the head, shoulders and neck.

“And I cleared my eyes and I saw them,” Malhi said.

Blue eyes peeking through black hoodies is what he saw. And as the beating continued his attackers shouted, “Go back to your country!”

The same message, along with hate symbols, were spray painted on his truck. Malhi, the entire time, fearing for his life.

“It’s very scary you know. They were going to shoot me,” Malhi said thought.

Ironically, Malhi says, it was his turban that softened the blows – the very symbol that may have sparked the hate.

It's very odd, very ironic. They're operations mirror the police state they claim to be against. But then again, communists worship the State as long as it wrecks the lives of the nation and its citizenry. Its for the "common good" afterall.



Iranians Hoard Gold As Currency Collapses Ahead Of Snapback Sanctions Reader 08/07/2018 (Tue) 00:12:40 Id: e8fca2 [Preview] No. 11628 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
On Tuesday just after midnight U.S. Eastern time, the Trump administration is set to bring back a first wave of restrictions that had been waived under the Iran nuclear deal, an Obama-era agreement that gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program. The new sanctions limit dealings in Iran’s currency and with its automotive industry. They also threaten U.S. penalties for banks that finance the precious-metals trade with Iran and against anyone who sells precious metals to the Iranian government.

And, as The Wall Street Journal reports, worries about a shaky economy and enticed by government sales of gold coins, Iranians have converted savings into gold recently even as prices skyrocketed.

According to Bonbast, a site that tracks unofficial exchange rates, Iran’s currency, the rial, has seen a record weakening this year - currently trading at roughly 101,000 per U.S. dollar compared with about 43,000 in January.

And this has sparked panic among Iranians, as The Wall Street Journal reports they are hoarding gold as a safeguard against a collapsing local currency and soaring cost of living pushing the metal’s price to records in Tehran.

"People are changing their money into gold because it’s a reliable investment commodity,” said Mohammad Kashtiaray, the head of gold and jewelry committee under Iran’s Chamber of Guilds, a coalition of merchants.

Demand for gold bars and coins in Iran tripled year-over-year in the second quarter to about 15 metric tons, according to a World Gold Council report on Thursday. Iran’s central bank has minted hundreds of thousands of new coins - more than 60 tons of gold in total - to feed the demand. The move has had little impact beyond stoking more demand for the metal.

Gold prices in the country are soaring above 'fair value' as WSJ notes, people have lined up outside banks this year to place advance orders for Emami coins in central bank auctions, where they are often priced at lower-than-market rates.

The price of an Emami, a central bank-minted gold coin weighing 8.13 grams, stood at around 36 million rials on Sunday, more than double its price in January. It had hit a record of more than 45 million rials a week ago. The demand for gold in Iran is also bucking a shaky picture globally; spot gold prices have fallen by about 6% this year to about $1,200 an ounce.

Demand for gold has been so resilient that prices are outpacing even the rial’s historic depreciation against the dollar. After factoring out fluctuations in the rial, the price of an Emami coin went from $346 in January to $379 today, a 9.5% rise.

And if it died, with it must die their dream and their hope of making themselves masters of the world.

Primarily it was war to the death between Germany and the International Money Power."

If the nation actually HAS a plentiful gold reserve, its a very stable commodity to back currency with because it ALWAYS maintains value. Never in human history has gold been worthless. The problem is the (((Rothschild-controlled))) central banks often end up stealing the nation's gold / selling it off. Central banks cannot be trusted. Whatever authority stores national reserves of gold should be routinely audited - not just by Congress but by independent organizations as well (at whim). Thats the main problem: where there is gold, there will also be thieves lurking. Same goes with any other highly valuable commodity.

Note that currency could also be backed by silver or as Hitler once said, other resources that maintain some kind of value. Thats not the best solution in my opinion but it would work as long proper auditing keeps the den of thieves away.

"Gradually, he also had to lead an existential struggle against the growing awakening and anger of the people. This forced him to lay his hands on the inner structure of the states if he wanted to remain the master of the peoples. We see the resulting destruction in three areas, namely those same three areas which were preserving and developing the states. The first area was the fight against the principle of the ethical duty to work. The jew had found another kind of work for himself where he could earn gold without practically moving a finger. He developed a principle which, throughout millennia, made it possible for him to amass fortunes without sweat and toil, unlike all other mortals, and above all – without taking risk. What does the word “industrial capital” really mean? Ladies and Gentlemen! People often accuse us, particularly in the factories: “You don’t fight against the industrial capital, just against finance and loan capital.” And most people don’t understand that one must not fight against industrial capital. What is industrial capital? It is a constantly changing factor, a relative concept. Once it was a needle and thread, a workshop and a couple of cents in ready money which a tailor in Nurnberg possessed in the 13th century. It was a sum that made work possible, that is: tools, workshops and a certain amount of money in order to survive for a period of time. Gradually, this small workshop became a big factory. But workshops and tools, machines and factories have, per se, no value able to produce value but are a means to an end. What produces value is work, and the few cents which made it possible to survive difficult times and buy some fabrics, multiplied through time, stand before us today – we call it Capital for continued operation in bad times, that is Working Capital. Here I want to emphasize one thing: Tools, workshop, machine, factory – or working capital, that is, industrial capital – against this you cannot fight at all. You can perhaps make sure that it is not abused but you cannot fight against it. This is the first major scam that one makes to our people, and they make it to distract us from the real fight, to pull it off from the capital which should and must be fought – from the loan and financial capital. This capital arises in a very different way. The smallest master craftsman was dependent on the fate that might affect him every day, on the general situation in the Middle Ages, perhaps on the size of his city and its prosperity, the security in this city. Also today is this capital, that is, the industrial capital tied to the state and to the people, depending on the will of the people to work, but depending also on the possibility to procure raw materials in order to be able to offer work and find buyers who will really buy the product. And we know that a collapse of the state, under certain circumstances, renders the greatest values worthless, devalues them, as distinguished from the other capital, the finance and loan capital, which accrues interest very evenly without any regard to whether the owner, for example, of these 10,000 Mark himself passes away or not. The debt remains on the estate. We experience that a state has debts, for example, the German Reich’s bonds for Alsace-Lorraine railways; these bonds must bear interest although the railways are no longer in our possession. We know that this railway fortunately has now a 20 billion deficit but their bonds must bear interest, and even though they were sold, in part, more than 60 years ago and have already been repaid four times, the debt, the interest, runs further, and while a great nation gains nothing on this company, it still must bleed; the loan capital continues to grow completely irrespective of any outside disturbance" NSGWP public meeting in the Great Hall of the Hofbrauhaus.

The same liberal media that has been bitterly whining about their First Amendment right of a free press for the last week, claiming that is somehow endangered because rally attendees screamed #CNNSUCKS at them, are now celebrating the decision by Facebook to permanently remove Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from their platform on the same day that Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars' six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps.

This comes just days after YouTube removed multiple Alex Jones videos and gave him a community strike for alleged "hate speech," which is the catch-all excuse being used by Apple, Facebook, and Spotify as their justification to silence him. A YouTube strike effectively prevents Jones from livestreaming his broadcasts on the platform.

His YouTube channel is now totally gone.

"Apple, Spotify, Facebook and YouTube all banned Infowars within 12 hours of each other, illustrating how last night’s purge was a coordinated effort and has nothing to do with these platforms enforcing “hate speech” rules."

I don't care if one agrees with Alex Jones or disagrees with him, if they love him or hate him, this coordinated attack against him and his InfoWars broadcasts and social media presence should severely concern everybody that sees the abusive liberal media bias and uses Independent Media to find information the establishment media won't report.

In The Friends of Voltaire, Evelyn Beatrice Hall wrote the phrase: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it," to illustrate Voltaire's beliefs.

Make no mistake, this coordinated takedown of Jones and Infowars by big tech is because of his huge audience. According to Arstechnica, Jones had 2.4 million YouTube subscribers and 1.6 million followers on Facebook.

TOMORROW WE WILL ALL BE ALEX JONES

There are some in the Independent Media that consider others as some type of competition, but the Internet is a huge, vast place, with room enough for all of us. Every single Independent Media website should be standing for Alex Jones and Infowars today, because tomorrow, we will all be Alex Jones.

Wikileaks apparently agrees as they just issued a statement regarding the purge of Infowars, saying "The empire strikes back: Apple, Spotify, Facebook and Google/Youtube all purge Infowars/Alex Jones. Yes, Infowars has frequent nonsense, but also a state power critique. Which publisher in the world with millions of subscribers is next to be wiped out for cultural transgression?"

Ben Shapiro over at Daily Wire, most definitely not a Jones' fan, and who has often criticized Infowars, and been criticized by Infowars, is also speaking out about why big tech is "dead wrong," for what they are doing because there is "no definition of hate speech that has a limiting principle."

Furthermore, it won’t be made clear, because the political Left has no clear standards. So, for example, social media companies like Twitter will “accidentally” suspend Candace Owens, a black woman, for simply substituting the words “blacks” and “Jews” for “whites” in Sarah Jeong tweets to demonstrate the double standard in the media; Jeong, however, retains her elevated position at The New York Times. The same Left that says people of color are incapable of racism says that it will suspend people for “hate speech.” How exactly are we supposed to trust in free and open debate when those setting the limits are openly setting them up with embedded double-standards?

The answer is, we don’t. Trust in social media is declining nearly as fast as trust in media overall. There’s a reason for that. And it’s not because social media tolerates voices like Jones. It’s because they don’t tolerate voices like Jones while tolerating voices who are just as bad on the political Left – and they show no signs of limiting their censorship to Alex Jones.

Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report makes his own type of statement in support of Jones and against big tech's attempts to silence him, by providing a direct link to the Infowars live broadcast.

UPDATE! Media Research Center just issued a statement, via email.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued this statement on this disturbing move by these major tech companies:

“I don’t support Alex Jones and what InfoWars produces. He’s not a conservative. However, banning him and his outlet is wrong. It’s not just a slippery slope, it’s a dangerous cliff that these social media companies are jumping off to satisfy CNN and other liberal outlets.

“This is part of a disturbing trend. In recent months top conservative congressmen have been shadowbanned on Twitter. Pro-life and pro-gun posts and videos are often removed on several platforms. Liberal journalists even objected to one conservative outlet attending a meeting with Facebook. Several conservative organizations like Live Action, the NRA and even the Christian satire site Babylon Bee have complained they had posts removed or censored.

“Social media sites are supposedly neutral platforms, but they are increasingly becoming opportunities for the left and major media to censor any content that they don’t like. The lack of transparency is also problematic and, as of this release, Facebook, Apple and Spotify have provided no detailed explanation for the ban.

“Conservatives are increasingly concerned that InfoWars is not the end point for those who want to ban speech. It’s just the beginning. We are rapidly approaching a point where censorship of opposing voices is the norm. That’s dangerous.”

This purge has happened over the last 24 hours, so we do expect to see many, many more Independent Media sites stand up and speak out.

BOTTOM LINE

Today is a terrifying day for free speech online, a day to remember that the media, liberals, social media giants and big tech, are determined to silence conservative voices in the Independent Media and they aren't even being subtle about it anymore.

Do you really think Alex colluded with Apple, Facebook, Spotify and Google to shut down all his media? Sure, it gave him more publicity but it also cut off massive AD revenue for AJ. As you once said, kikes will often stab each other in the back. This is more plausible if he's controlled opposition.

After months of dribbling out incomplete document requests made by frustrated GOP lawmakers, President Trump may be about to override Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and use his presidential authority to declassify several caches of information related to the DOJ/FBI's ongoing Trump-Russia counterintelligence operation, according to former IBD Bureau Chief Paul Sperry.

Sperry tweeted on Sunday that President Trump may declassify: 20 redacted pages of a June, 2017 FISA renewal, "and possibly" 63 pages of emails and notes between "Ohr & Steele," and FD-302 summaries of 12 interviews - In reference to twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and/or his wife Nellie, both of whom were working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump.

Take a look as the mass of responses on any of Trump's tweets. The fucking idiots never shut up about "collusion with Russia". Meanwhile, he's actually colluding with Israel and none of them are bringing it up.

Good! Tommy Robinson Freed On Bail After Court Orders Retrial Reader 08/02/2018 (Thu) 00:12:47 Id: e83f24 [Preview] No. 11473 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Tommy Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League, will be freed from prison after the court of appeal ordered that he should be retried on a contempt of court charge. He has been held at Onley prison after being jailed for 13 months following convictions for breaching reporting restrictions after broadcasting footage of trial defendants on social media.

Robinson was jailed in May after he filmed people involved in a criminal trial and broadcast the footage on social media. The footage, lasting about an hour, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook. The controversial activist was sentenced to 10 months in prison for contempt of court, which he admitted, and a further three months for breaching a previous suspended sentence.

Fast forward to today, when at the court of appeal on Wednesday, the lord chief justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, upheld the conviction but said there should be a retrial for the Leeds case, the Guardian reported.

Robinson, the appeal court said, would be released on bail on condition that he attended the retrial before the recorder of London at a date to be fixed.

In the ruling, the lord chief justice said the Leeds finding of contempt had been “flawed”. That court should not have proceeded immediately but waited to hear the case on a “fully informed basis”, he said.

The judgment added: “It was unclear what conduct was said to comprise a breach of that order and the appellant was sentenced on the basis of conduct which fell outside the scope of that order.”

The fact he openly supports Mossad is a concern, OK... think of it this way... what if he were to sport a jacket with the letters CIA in bold print? And openly support that corrupt agency. Get what I'm saying? I understand the concerns, from both sides, but that must be questioned. Why openly support such corrupt and hostile agencies that have deliberately destabilized other countries, partly causing the influx of refugees in the first place? On the other hand Britain is not friendly at all when it comes to free speech and it should be noted to ANYONE living or traveling over there.

Just to make it clear for everyone here: the "Good!" and "Bad!" (and once upon a time "Boom!") memes were created by myself when I use to post news threads on 8chan. I left 8chan for several reasons but the most significant: 1) because of the datamining by Jim which was exposed and 2) because my ability to post news (or anything else for that matter) was curtailed after I adopted a new encrypted VPN service, making any attempted posts from that VPN freeze up. I'll prove this with a recent attempt to post [see the screenshot / the "OK" button appears without any post or confirmation of it going through].

Hope this clears up any inaccurate rumors or speculations.

Infowars Purged From Major Social Media Platforms, Other Conservative Media Facing Mass Censorship As Well Reader 08/06/2018 (Mon) 13:59:10 Id: 1144b2 [Preview] No. 11602 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Liberal Tech Giants Facebook, Twitter, Google-YouTube have all stepped up their harassment of conservative publishers since the 2016 election.

The far left and Democrats understand that conservatives get their news from online publishers.

Since the election, from a Gateway Pundit study, we found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.

Twitter is shadowbanning and censoring conservative lawmakers and conservative publishers.

Wikipedia is controlled by far left editors who are regularly accused of liberal bias.

YouTube is shutting down conservative pages and demonitizing several others.

A Gateway Pundit June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.

On Monday Facebook caved to the leftist media mob demanding censorship of InfoWars and permanently banned their page:

Also on Monday Apple removed Infowars podcasts. CNBC reported: https://web.archive.org/web/20180806134021/https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/06/apple-pulls-alex-jones-infowars-podcasts-for-hate-speech.html

Apple confirmed on Monday that it had removed five out of six podcasts, which includes Jones’ infamous “The Alex Jones Show” as well as a number of other InfoWars audio streams. The news was originally reported by BuzzFeed News.

It is interesting that Facebook and Apple would ban Infowars on the same day.

https://archive.fo/XWXQd

Apple has completely removed five of Infowars' six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps under their hate speech guidelines, reports BuzzFeed News - including the daily Alex Jones podcast and the show "War Room" - in "one of the largest enforcement actions intended to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date."

Apple did not host Jones's shows, but it offered an index that allowed anyone with an iPhone to find and subscribe to them. Though Apple is far from Jones and Infowars' only distribution platform, the decision to pull Jones' content will considerably limit the outlet's audio reach — as of 2018, Apple's Podcasts platform amassed 50 billion all-time downloads and streams. -BuzzFeed

"Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users," a company spokesperson told BuzzFeed.

Commenting on the action, Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson said that "according to Apple, if you don’t respect people with different views, you will be banned. Does this mean it is necessary to respect people who advocate child marriage and honor killings simply to have a platform?"

It will soon be the responsibility of every individual to have physical backups of all their memes, videos, articles, pdfs among other media they like to share. And people will need to find alternatives and inform people about alternatives. Face it, the cucks in Congress and the ZOG-agent in the White House WON'T DO JACK SHIT about any of this! They'll let the censorship commence on grant scale. Time to completely ditch these corporate platforms and start over, find alternatives or create your own.

From what I gather a lot of conservatives are now ditching Google-youtube and are headed over to Bitchute and real.video

Are there any web browser add-ons or tools that can rip videos from these platforms yet? WILL become essential soon if you want to save any controversial videos (like it or not, the exodus is beginning).

Matt Drudge was absolutely right years ago when talking to AJ, stating these words:

“I am not on Facebook. I don’t do the socials. I have that little Twitter thing — even that is kind of disgusting,” ... “You know, I have been doing the Internet as long as you have been doing this radio show, Alex. Literally every day… And I’ll tell you, I was there before Facebook. I was there before CNN.com. I was there before mostly all of them,” he added. “I have a very clear perception of what the Internet is in my mind. I am free.”

“I am not defined by what they say the Internet is. Meaning Goldman Sachs, meaning who they invest in for the latest startup. Meaning the latest BuzzFeed or Salon or Gawker — well, Gawker is more independent,” he said. “But there is a lot of corporate makeover of the Internet that I have not adapted to, simply put.”
“I have completely remained independent from all of them. All of them! I am not influenced by any of them,” Drudge added. “I need no traffic from Google.”

“This is ghetto. This is corporate,” Drudge said as he took aim at the narcissism rampant on social media. “They are taking your energy and you get nothing in return!”

“I’m just warning this country that — don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No, you’re not! You’re a pawn in their scheme,” he declared.

He nailed it. Rely on the system, then you become their bitch! Fuck every single one of them, America needs to drop all these services and either utilize alternatives or create their own platforms like Matt Drudge did. Image boards are a great place to get info out too.
