Russia To Build Their Own Internet Without Any Access To Outside World Reader 05/02/2019 (Thu) 14:09:37 Id: 3470dc [Preview] No. 14621 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed into law a "sovereign internet" bill which will allow Russian authorities to isolate the country's internet, a move decried by rights groups.

Russian lawmakers insist the new law is necessary to ensure the security of Russia's online networks but critics say the vaguely worded bill gives new censorship powers to government monitors.

The text of the law was published Wednesday but it will not come into effect until November.

The measures include creating technology to monitor internet routing and to steer Russian internet traffic away from foreign servers, ostensibly to prevent a foreign country from shutting it down.

The authors of the initiative say Russia must ensure the security of its networks after US President Donald Trump unveiled a new American cybersecurity strategy last year that said Russia had carried out cyber attacks with impunity.

Thousands of people recently rallied in Russia against this and other bills that critics say aim to restrict information and communication online.

Separately, Putin in March signed controversial laws that allow courts to fine and briefly jail people for showing disrespect towards authorities, and block media for publishing "fake news".

The laws are part of an ongoing Kremlin clampdown on media and internet freedoms that has seen people jailed for sharing humorous memes. This is the exact kind of censorship going on in the UK and much of Europe today too.

Corporate Mainstream Media Bites Their Nails As Catalan Separatists Triumph In Spanish Election Reader 05/01/2019 (Wed) 15:25:37 Id: 641785 [Preview] No. 14618 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Spanish General election in Catalonia was a stunning victory for the Catalan Separatists, their best ever election result, achieved despite their leadership being exiled or political prisoners and despite an avalanche of MSM propaganda against them. Four of those elected are currently in jail. The Spanish state has reacted by declaring the two major separatist candidates, Clara Ponsati and Carles Puigdemont, ineligible for the European Parliament elections.

The Catalan Republican Left won the biggest share of the vote, which negates the continued false propaganda being put about Catalonian Independence being a right wing movement. Over 60% of the vote in Catalonia went to avowedly left wing parties.

It is further worth noting that there is a very plain correlation between the geographical location of the 3.6% of the vote that the neo-fascists of Vox gained in Catalonia, and the Spanish occupation garrisons in the country.

You will struggle very hard indeed to learn any of the above facts from British mainstream media; I had to get them all from Catalan sources.

The Guardian has published 55 articles in the last three years boosting Ines Arrimadas, the leader of the Catalan branch of the right wing “Spanish” Citizens Party, including at least three op-eds written by Ines herself. The Guardian has sought relentlessly to portray public opinion in Catalonia as anti-Independence, and Arrimadas as its true representative.

Given the thuggish violence of Francoist paramilitary forces against the ordinary voters in Catalonia’s referendum, given the imprisoning and exile of its peaceful leadership, given the extraordinary Madrid dictated barrage of MSM propaganda, the Catalan nationalist victory in the General Election is a wonderful triumph for the human spirit.


You Were Warned! Geo-engineered Cyclone Bomb Sends Meat Prices Skyrocketing Reader 04/30/2019 (Tue) 18:48:57 Id: bb2f26 [Preview] No. 14614 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Just hours after IMF Director Christine Lagarde got done telling the world that "everybody" would like a little more inflation, McDonald's warned investors on Tuesday that it could be under pressure from commodity costs in the U.S. rising as much as 3% - higher than the 1% to 2% inflation that it had forecast just three months ago. In fact, the dining industry as a whole is reeling under the same pricing pressure, according to Bloomberg.

BJ’s Restaurants Inc. is expecting higher pork prices and Yum China Holdings Inc. told investors that rising poultry costs will hit their margins for the rest of the year. These worries come on top of a cost concerns about a rise in the minimum wage.

The rise in meat prices has been largely driven by the swine fever that is decimating China's hog population. Processors around the world have been trying to make up for the shortages caused by the outbreak, but prices have spiked nonetheless. As companies look to substitute pork with more chicken and beef, those prices have also risen.

At Texas Roadhouse Inc., the price hikes have already hit the menu, with customers paying as much as 3% more to help the company try to offset its costs. President Scott Colosi said: “That’s going to go a long ways on margins.”

And so it seems that just about "everybody" in the industry is recognizing these signs of inflation - except, of course, for people like Jerome Powell, Christine Lagarde and other central bankers.

NASA Sides With Global Warming Skeptics, Carbon Dioxide is GREENING the Earth Reader 04/30/2019 (Tue) 17:38:48 Id: f7bf24 [Preview] No. 14613 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth over the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life.

The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:

We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…

In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists. The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened.

In direct contradiction to the real science on the greening benefits of carbon dioxide, Democrats routinely and mindlessly claim that carbon dioxide is a poisonous “pollutant” that will destroy the world. The anti-knowledge of lunatic Democrats demonstrates the extreme dangers of those who are scientifically illiterate yet spout “science” as their justification for demanding radical interventions in atmospheric chemistry.

In truth, rising levels of carbon dioxide will cause the following beneficial effects on Earth:

Reforestation due to Earth moving toward a warmer, wetter, more greenhouse-like environment
Acceleration of food production among food crops
An increase in the biodiversity of rainforests
Increased rainfall across Earth’s continents
The transformation of deserts into usable plains for grazing and agriculture

Deliberate Destabilization: DHS Releases Illegal Invaders With Tuberculosis, Other Diseases Into US Reader 04/30/2019 (Tue) 17:01:15 Id: a75e1c [Preview] No. 14612 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

What happened to the incubation periods at quarantine stations in Ellis Island? Why does coming here illegally exempt aliens from the laws on the books that make them inadmissible until we know they are not a threat?

On Sunday, Aaron Hull, chief patrol agent of the El Paso sector, divulged to the public what we already suspected but most government officials assiduously covered up. The head of the second busiest illegal immigration corridor told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is increasingly “caring for more and more sick people, because a lot of these aliens coming in are carrying contagious health conditions, things like chicken pox, scabies, tuberculosis, lice.”

Tuberculosis. That is the disease we sought to eradicate through our laws as early as 1907 by requiring every prospective immigrant to wait at Ellis Island, away from the population, until they got the green light to enter. That is a far cry from what a CBP official told me two weeks ago – that “we have not seen any specific, unusual, or alarming public health or infectious disease threats in persons in CBP custody.”

CBP declined to comment further on Hull’s revelation upon my request.

If border agents have confirmed the arrival of illegal aliens with tuberculosis who have not been treated in hospitals, what about all those exposed to it in close quarters who did not yet exhibit symptoms and were released within hours of apprehension? Unlike in the past, where illegal immigrants waited for days in ICE facilities before either being deported or released, CBP is directly releasing thousands of aliens into the interior within hours. A bunch of illegal aliens caught in Arizona and El Paso this past month were released in Tucson.

It is simply inconceivable that this is not a priority threat to the American people. IT IS! It is certainly a violation of current immigration law. The law (8. U.S.C. §1182(a)(1)(A)(i)-(ii)) states clearly that any alien “who has failed to present documentation of having received vaccination against vaccine-preventable diseases, which shall include at least the following diseases: mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B and hepatitis B, and any other vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases” are inadmissible. Moreover, 8 U.S.C. § 1222(a) requires the government to detain them “for a sufficient time to enable the immigration officers and medical officers to subject such aliens to observation and an examination sufficient to determine whether or not they belong to inadmissible classes.”

DHS officials, including the current acting DHS secretary, have testified that these people have largely never “received immunizations.”

Where are the pro-vaxxers NOW!?

Attempted ZOG-US Backed Coup d'etát in Venezuela Happening Right NOW Reader 04/30/2019 (Tue) 14:37:16 Id: ebeedf [Preview] No. 14610 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A military base in Caracas, called la Carlota, has rebelled against the Maduro goverment and are now being commanded by Juan Guaidó.


Self-declared Venezuelan ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido has called for a military uprising in a video shot at a Caracas airbase, accompanied by a number of soldiers and detained activist Leopoldo Lopez.

The moment has come to “start the end of the usurpation,” Guaido said in the video, flanked by heavily-armed soldiers and an armored vehicle. According to him, the speech was made at the Generalissimo Francisco de Miranda Air Base in Caracas, commonly known as ‘La Carlota’.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez, meanwhile, blasted Guaido’s move as “a coup with the aims to flood the country with violence.”

The army “stands firm in defense of the National Constitution and the legitimate authorities,” he said, adding that the military units all across Venezuela are staying at their bases and remain loyal to their commanders.

Around 50 countries globally, including the US, have recognized Guaido's 'interim presidency'. He has argued that Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate, and in recent weeks has stepped up pressure on Maduro to step down. In response, Maduro's government has stripped Guaido of his parliamentary immunity and barred him from leaving the country.

Bolivian President Evo Morales decried the “coup”, writing on Twitter: “We strongly condemn the coup attempt in #Venezuela, by the right wing that is submissive to foreign interests.” President Maduro retweeted the note of support on Tuesday morning.

President Morales added: “The United States with its interference and promoting coups seeks to provoke violence and death in #Venezuela, it does not care about human losses, only its interests. We must be vigilant and united so that the coup plotters never return to our region.”

Wealthy Elites Suddenly Freak Out When Homeless People Show Up In Their Neighborhoods Reader 04/29/2019 (Mon) 15:30:53 Id: 2703f0 [Preview] No. 14599 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The elite are very “tolerant” of the homeless until they start showing up in their own neighborhoods. Even though the mainstream media keeps telling us that the U.S. economy is “booming”, the number of Americans living on the streets continues to grow very rapidly, and this is particularly true in our major west coast cities. More than half a million Americans will sleep on the streets of our cities tonight, and they need help, care and shelter. Sadly, as economic conditions deteriorate that number is likely to double or even triple. Of course many among the elite are all in favor of doing something for the homeless, as long as they don’t have to be anywhere around them.

For example, let’s talk about what is going on in Los Angeles. No city on the west coast has a bigger problem with homelessness than L.A. does, and many in the homeless population enjoy camping out on the beautiful beaches in the L.A. area at night.

But of course many of the elite that paid millions of dollars for beachfront property are not too thrilled about this. Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten was a key symbol of anti-establishment rebellion in the 1970s, but now he is freaking out because homeless people are making life very difficult for him and his wife in Venice Beach, and what he recently told Newsweek’s Paula Froelich is making headlines all over the nation…

He told her the homeless situation in his swanky LA neighborhood is so bad that thieves are tearing the bars from the windows of his multimillion-dollar home, lobbing bricks, setting up unsightly tent cities and littering the beach with syringes.

“A couple of weeks ago I had a problem,” the former punk prince opined. “They came over the gate and put their tent inside, right in front of the front door. It’s like . . . the audacity. And if you complain, what are you? Oh, one of the establishment elite? No, I’m a bloke that’s worked hard for his money and I expect to be able to use my own front door.”

It is more than just a little bit ironic that a man that used drugs, sex and rock and roll to shoot to global fame now sounds like a tired old crank that just wants to get the hippies off of his front lawn.

And he also says that the beach in front of his home is almost unusable because of all the needles and human poop in the sand…

Rotten added of the punks: “They’re aggressive, and because there’s an awful lot of them together they’re gang-y. And the heroin spikes . . . You can’t take anyone to the beach because there’s jabs just waiting for young kids to put their feet in — and poo all over the sand.”

In Los Angeles, the number of homeless people that have died has risen 76 percentover the past five years, and this has happened during supposedly “good economic times”.

But I thought those anarchist faggots wanted society torn down so they could rebuild from the chaos.

ONCE AGAIN, Govt-Tech Firms' 'Smart' Databases Full Of Consumers' Private Info HACKED Reader 04/29/2019 (Mon) 21:34:57 Id: d28fd5 [Preview] No. 14607 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In a blow to consumers' privacy, the addresses and demographic details of more than 80 million US households were exposed on an unsecured database stored on the cloud, independent security researchers have found.

The details included names, ages and genders as well as income levels and marital status. The researchers, led by Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, were unable to identify the owner of the database, which until Monday was online and required no password to access. Some of the information was coded, like gender, marital status and income level. Names, ages and addresses were not coded.

The data didn't include payment information or Social Security numbers. The 80 million households affected make up well over half of the households in the US, according to Statista.

"I wouldn't like my data to be exposed like this," Rotem said in an interview with CNET. "It should not be there."

Rotem and his team verified the accuracy of some data in the cache but didn't download the data to minimize the invasion of privacy of those listed, he said.

It's one more example of a widespread problem with cloud data storage, which has revolutionized how we store valuable information. Many organizations don't have the expertise to secure the data they keep on internet-connected servers, resulting in repeated exposures of sensitive data. Earlier in April, a researcher revealed that patient information from drug addiction treatment centers was exposed on an unsecured database. Another researcher found a giant cache of Facebook user data stored by third-party companies on another database that was publicly visible.

"I wouldn't like my data to be exposed like this. It should not be there."

IRS Grants Satanic Temple Tax-Exempt Status After Years of Blocking Conservative Christian Groups Reader 04/29/2019 (Mon) 15:30:11 Id: 8c7514 [Preview] No. 14598 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The IRS has officially recognized the Satanic Temple as a “church,” meaning it now enjoys a tax-exempt status. Just more proof the USSA is in rapid moral decline.

For years the IRS blocked tax-exempt status for conservative groups, which directly impacted the 2012 presidential election.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports:

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
5 pro-Israel groups
Constitutional groups
Groups that criticized Obama regime
At least two pro-life groups
An 83 year-old German slave labor camp survivor
A 180 year-old Baptist paper
A Texas voting-rights group

Not much better than the original article's claim:

We don't enjoy these amenities in modern wage slave corporations. The proper term would be luxury work resort.

Thats true, only many of them happened to die naturally when Germany suffered defeat of WWII and supplies could no longer be provided to those labor camps. Some survived, although they'll claim they survived something fabricated and made up like 'ovens' and 'gas chambers' so I though a little correction was in need.

Regardless of some of the hyperbole it is nonetheless interesting that our government holds great bias against conservatives and even pro-Christian groups.

Also, if the government wants to give religious organizations tax exemption then no one should be discriminated against, whether that be a 'church' of Satan or Christian pro-life groups. But in this case there was clear discrimination against conservative Christians. I'd have to say that is pretty bias. The other way to look at it is if they are going to deny certain groups tax-exempt status then ALL should be denied for that matter.

Well the bias against Christian groups, the reason is fairly obvious. You only need to ask yourself which religious group in control is entirely anti-Christ. We pay the IRS tithes/terumah offerings, yet the masses still don't know from where that originates.

Good! Indiana Abolishes State Fees For Gun Ownership, Legal Reimbursements For Self-Defense Cases Reader 04/29/2019 (Mon) 17:52:39 Id: 343e44 [Preview] No. 14605 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) applauds Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb for signing into law a comprehensive gun rights bill that will make it easier for law-abiding Hoosiers to defend themselves. Gov. Holcomb signed the bill into law on the stage of the NRA-ILA's Leadership Forum at the Indiana Convention Center - Lucas Oil Stadium.

Lawmakers amended HB 1284, introduced by Rep. Jim Lucas, to include important self-defense protection from HB 1643, introduced by Rep. Ben Smaltz.

The new law expands self-defense options in the following ways:

Eliminates state fees for a new five-year state License to Carry a Handgun (LTCH);
Allows law-abiding gun owners greater ability to carry for self-protection in churches;
Allows gun owners to register to vote when they apply for a LTCH.

“Under this new law, honest, hard-working gun owners will no longer be forced to pay $125 to exercise a fundamental right that ought to be free,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “This law ends this abuse and ensures that the most vulnerable gun owners are able to protect themselves without worrying about the cost of a license.”

Additionally, the new law provides greater protection to gun owners. Previously, an undue burden was on the defendant in exercising the right to self-defense. Under the new law, that burden is shifted. In addition, a person who acts in self-defense and is later forced to defend themselves a second time in court can be reimbursed for the legal fees associated with their defense.
