Tesla Stocks Tumble As SEC Said To Subpoena Company Reader 08/15/2018 (Wed) 17:16:56 Id: 6b7143 [Preview] No. 11955 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Having stoically resisted the barrage of news over the past 9 days following Elon Musk's infamous "going private" tweet, Tesla is suddenly sliding, down more than 4%, on a tweet by Fox Business News' Charlie Gasparino, who reports that the "SEC ramps up investigation into Tesla privatization plans; sends subpoenas to Tesla regarding privatization plans and Musk's statements involving "funding secured." He adds that the "subpoenas signal investigation has reached the "formal" stages."

The stock is sliding.

So what happens next, and is a quick resolution imminent? Hardly.

As Bloomberg lays out the next steps in a potential enforcement process, the SEC’s average inquiry takes about two years and adds that "that kind of time frame would understandably frustrate traders who are reading Musk’s tweets and trying to assess in real-time whether he’s actually lined up bankers and lawyers to advise on a deal. But even though Wall Street might want a quick ruling on whether he’s violated securities laws, Washington regulators may disappoint."

SEC officials may also be keen to speak with members of the Saudi wealth fund to learn if Musk’s public statements accurately reflect their private conversations. But getting foreign nationals to cooperate can be challenging, and issuing subpoenas to compel testimony doesn’t always work when the targets are overseas.

To be clear, the SEC hasn’t accused Musk or Tesla of any wrongdoing. If the SEC does determine he or the company violated the law, it will submit what’s known as a Wells notice, which notifies investigative targets that the agency’s enforcement division plans to recommend that SEC commissioners approve a lawsuit or sanction against the company.

Another factor that could slow things down is that the SEC’s scrutiny of Tesla goes beyond Musk’s recent tweets. The agency’s San Francisco office was already examining the company’s public pronouncements on manufacturing goals and sales targets, Bloomberg reported Aug. 9.

Turkey Increases Tariffs on US Imports Including Vehicles, Alcohol, Tobacco Reader 08/15/2018 (Wed) 16:48:55 Id: 0da497 [Preview] No. 11953 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/11340 ; >>>/news/11375 ; >>>/news/11579 ; >>>/news/11756 ; >>>/news/11897

According to the country's Official Gazette, the decree signed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, raised the levy on passenger cars by 120 percent, on alcoholic drinks by 140 percent and on leaf tobacco by 60 percent. Tariffs were also increased on goods including cosmetics, rice and coal.

Turkey's Vice President Fuat Oktay wrote on Twitter Wednesday that Ankara has raised tariffs on US products under the principle of reciprocity "in response to the US administration's deliberate attacks on our economy."

On Tuesday, Erdogan said his government would boycott electronic goods from the United States in response to Washington imposing tariffs on Turkish imports. He pledged Turkey would work to produce and export more goods, as well as provide employment opportunities to Turkish citizens.

On Friday, Erdogan said Turkey was in a state of economic war after the Turkish lira plummeted as a result of US President Donald Trump’s announcement that he authorized the doubling of US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Turkey.

The tensions between the two countries escalated after Donald Trump announced earlier that the United States would increase import tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum to 50 and 20 percent respectively. Following Trump's decision, the Turkish lira fell to its record low against the US dollar on Sunday night nosediving to 7.13 lire for the US dollar.

The bilateral relations initially soured in 2016 after US pastor Andrew Brunson was arrested in Turkey for allegedly being a member of the movement founded by Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, which Ankara accused of trying to overthrow the government in 2016 and listed as a terrorist organization.

If this purge continues on such a harsh level it could really destroy the ability for average people to get the truth out over the internet. I'm sure they have a large list of targets, all they have to do is use their consolidated power to start knocking them all down one by one, including the image boards and alternative networks out there. AJ is pretty big target and that's harder for them to do, but if they are successful then we know its only a matter of time before we all start going down. I see this as a massive beta test (they're likely probing how the information spreads, where the alternatives lead to, and blacklisting even more targets for future takedowns).

Here is the perfect solution to a lot of social media censorship: https://riot.im/

Here's a summary: Matrix defines a set of open APIs for decentralised communication, suitable for securely publishing, persisting and subscribing to data over a global open federation of servers with no single point of control. Uses include Instant Messaging (IM), Voice over IP (VoIP) signalling, Internet of Things (IoT) communication, and bridging together existing communication silos - providing the basis of a new open real-time communication ecosystem.

So, you see a general idea of what it is. Now here's the good part. The application [ Riot ] at riot.im is _very_ useful. You can create end-to-end encrypted chats which means no logs and nothing can be read from a 3rd party. Just as well, you can create rooms where people join to chat. It's entirely anonymous, you can sign up for an account at matrix.org using Tor, plus, you can chat while proxied through Tor. So, that also means you could proxy through I2P or something of the sort. Matrix protocol and riot application are very very easy to use and are anonymous to the core.

I suggest that we use this for a number of reasons:

1. Anonymous
2. Decentralized
3. Encrypted (end to end, means no logs)
4. You can host your own node and provide for everyone

Deliberate Destabilization: Sudanese Muslim Attacks UK Parliament, Killing Many Pedestrians Reader 08/15/2018 (Wed) 14:04:43 Id: dace58 [Preview] No. 11951 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The suspect arrested on suspicion of carrying out a terrorist attack at the UK Parliament on Tuesday has been named as Salih Khater, Sky News reported. It is believed the 29-year-old is a British citizen of Sudanese origin, and remains in police custody after his arrest on suspicion of preparing an act of terror.

A Facebook page for a man of the same name says he lives in Birmingham, works as a shop manager, and has studied at Sudan University of Science and Technology.

Khater has been arrested on suspicion of ramming a car into pedestrians and cyclists before crashing into security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament. The suspect is being held in custody in south London, and is said to be not cooperating with police. Scotland Yard’s head of counter-terrorism Neil Basu said no other suspects have been identified.

Police have been searching addresses in the Midlands after a car smashed into barriers near Parliament on Tuesday morning. Officers revealed the driver travelled from Birmingham to London on Monday night and arrived in the capital just after midnight.

He remained in the Tottenham Court Road area, close to Oxford Street, from around 1.25am until 5.55am.

The silver Ford Fiesta was then driven to Westminster and Whitehall for about 6am and stayed in the area until the time of the attack. It hit cyclists and pedestrians at 7.37am before crashing into security barriers.

According to the MI5, the suspect was unknown and "not currently cooperating", the Metropolitan Police said afterwards. His vehicle was removed late on Tuesday night.

Two addresses in the West Midlands city were being searched by counter-terror officers later that evening, as well as a flat in Nottingham's Radford/ Arboretum area.

Deliberate Destabilization: Migrant Gangs Unleash Coordinated Fire-Bomb Rampage Across Diverse Sweden Reader 08/14/2018 (Tue) 12:33:29 Id: e15616 [Preview] No. 11892 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him.

Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years.

And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.

Police report that the situation is under control and they remain on the premises to keep order.

It is no surprise then, as we noted previously, judging by the latest polls, the rise of extreme populist groups in Sweden is accelerating fast.

As Reuters reports, dozens of people have been killed in the past two years in attacks in the capital Stockholm and other big cities by gangs that are mostly from run-down suburbs dominated by immigrants.

Goddamnit, Sweden. The migrants don't even have to cause this much destruction. I'm sure they could go door-to-door, hand Swedes a gun, and ask them to blow their brains out. They'd do it. The most cucked people on planet Earth.

They've been brainwashed hard over there and if the propaganda continues in most other Western countries undebated and unquestioned you will see the same results in the near future. Note that in Sweden alternative media is banned, no one is even allowed to speak out about this stuff because its considered a "hate crime" and they'll be shut down and thrown in prison (much like in the UK). This is why we must thwart the censorship of alternative media so normal people can wake up to this blatant deceit. If you want to know where the censorship of alternative media leads to, look no further than Sweden.



How Alabama's Coal Industry Was Saved Reader 08/15/2018 (Wed) 01:37:01 Id: ef97c9 [Preview] No. 11943 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It was hulking, it was orange, and its name was Trump.

Randy Johnson looked on as his new 220-ton excavator carved up the ground, clearing the field of rocks to help unearth the coal underneath. Four weeks earlier, the central Alabama mine’s 22 employees had gathered to christen the $2.7 million purchase, painting “TRUMP” in white block letters along the excavator’s side. The day I visited, a recent Friday in July, those letters gleamed under the punishing southern sun, the machine’s every move—every swivel at the base, every curl of the claw—an implicit tribute to the 45th president.

It’s tradition in the mining industry to name the “big machines.” Apart from the land itself, they represent the bulk of capital for a new site. For Johnson, though, this excavator was emblematic of much more. The 71-year-old Alabama native and mining veteran had bowed out of the industry in 2014, when he says the Obama administration’s “war on coal” pummeled the market. But with Donald Trump’s election came a wave of “optimism,” he told me: optimism that the crush of regulations would ebb, that the “dirty” caricatures of the industry, aggravated by Barack Obama, would start to soften. So at the turn of the year, when he learned of an idle reserve in Bessemer, Johnson reopened his company, called one of his old foremen, and made the largest investment of his career.

That Friday morning, the mine’s 491 acres hummed. Trump (the excavator), two track hoes, and eight dump trucks were at work on the land’s first seam—or layer—of largely steam coal. “We’re starting small,” Johnson told me. He anticipates beginning with 20,000 or so tons a month, which would provide a cash flow that would allow him to break even by fall. It’s a modest forecast, and Johnson admitted that he has no long-term contracts yet to anchor the operation, save for existing contracts through the state’s coal co-op. But he’s confident the market will continue to reflect Trump’s favor of the industry. While the majority of the administration’s regulatory rollbacks remain steeped in litigation, the expectation that no new rules are likely to come has kept the mood here high.

“I’ve been doing this a long time, and I have a good feeling,” Johnson told me that morning. “I promise you it was Obama’s goal, and would have been Hillary Clinton’s goal, to dismantle the coal industry in Alabama.” He turned to his 56-year-old business partner, Mel Bailey. “Mel, if Hillary Clinton had been elected, would we have done this?”

“No,” Bailey said. “It wouldn’t have happened.”

>>11943
There are many reasons to be skeptical of Johnson’s gamble. Natural gas continues to flow cheaply, meaning Trump may not be ending the war on coal so much as putting it off for the time being. This seemed especially true last month, when the administration proposed keeping struggling coal plants afloat by forcing energy-grid operators to purchase from those plants, citing reasons of “national security.” For many conservatives, the proposed move was reminiscent of Obama’s massive 2010 loan to Solyndra, the solar-panel start-up whose swift bankruptcy left taxpayers footing the bill—which is to say it signaled the harm that can come with government intervention in a resistant market. It was telling that just as Trump’s proposal came to light, Republicans like Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia were touting the promises of natural gas.

Yet prudent or not, Johnson’s reentry into coal mining reflects a Trump-sparked enthusiasm rippling through many small industrial towns. For voters like Johnson, the president’s friendly posture toward the industry is a promise from the campaign trail made good—much like his withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, for instance, and his nominations of conservative justices to the Supreme Court. It’s the kind of follow-through that enlivens a political base, encouraging voter turnout in midterm elections and beyond. Republicans may privately wince at Trump’s proposed interventions in the industry, but if they believe their mining constituencies should temper their optimism, they certainly aren’t saying as much.

Johnson’s gamble may be rooted largely in faith: faith in regulatory rollbacks to come, faith that the market will only get better under this president’s watch. But the Trump administration’s support of coal isn’t just rhetoric either. Apart from proposing the new coal-buying quotas for energy-grid operators, Trump has eliminated the Stream Protection Rule. The law, intended to protect waterways from coal-mining waste, was considered one of the key environmental measures of the Obama era. The regulation sparked massive backlash across the industry; water treatment is expensive, and the rule promised to slow down an already convoluted approval process for land permits. In February 2017, as one of the first acts of his presidency, Trump signed a bill undoing the law entirely.

It’s the elimination of such regulations that has helped turn miners like Johnson more bullish about reentering the industry. “We know you ‘get it’ and you love America and coal miners,” Johnson wrote recently in a letter to the White House. “Keep fighting for us and we will stand with you.”

In 1990, Johnson helped found the Alabama Coal Co-op, which allows smaller mines like his to pool their coal reserves and compete against the major ones. In the decades before, the state’s mining industry had enjoyed a healthy run, in large part because of the gargantuan presence of U.S. Steel in Birmingham. Even as the local steel industry receded in the mid-1990s, international demand for coal remained high.

Demand fluctuated by the early aughts. And that was normal: Energy markets, especially for the kind of coal used to make steel, have long been unpredictable. But demand for thermal, or steam, coal—used to generate electricity—took a decided hit during the Obama era.

The reason why depends on who you ask. Johnson and others in the coal community argue demand diminished not because mining companies couldn’t compete with natural gas, but because, given the onslaught of new regulations—including carbon-emission controls under the Clean Power Plan—they essentially weren’t allowed to. Ultimately, the reason for thermal coal’s decline is likely a combination of the two. Under the Clean Power Plan’s emission standards, power plants were pressured to look to renewable energy sources and natural gas. And with natural gas cheaper than ever, state public-utility commissions were more willing to acquiesce to those standards, rather than challenge them. So plants across the country began taking their coal units offline.

From 2008 to 2017, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the number of coal mines across the country decreased by roughly half. From 2012 to 2017, miner labor hours declined 39 percent.

Hardest hit were people like Barry Chambers: longtime private contractors who relied on mines for income. Chambers, who’s based in Fairview, Alabama, told me he enjoyed steady work for three different coal companies before the Obama era. He administered ground control and water control, engineered catch ponds, and even contracted some mining work from the companies looking to open new fields. “The Obama administration just killed me,” he said. “It started to where they couldn’t afford to use me no more as a private contractor, and then eventually they shut down altogether.”

At age 58, Chambers found himself out of work and more than a million dollars in debt. He sold all of his equipment. “My wife got a real good job,” he said, which helped pay the bills. When some of their property burned, they remodeled it themselves. Everything was done, he said, in the service of getting out of debt “without filing bankruptcy.”

>>11945
Chambers was giddy, then, when he learned the Bessemer mine, known as Shannon, was reopening. “I knew several of them working here,” he said. He started making phone calls. Within days, Johnson hired him as an assistant foreman. The plan is to have him take over some of the operations as the mine reaches its second, third, and fourth seams. “I’ve been here three weeks now,” Chambers told me. “I thank him every day I see him.”

Johnson brought back another longtime partner, Eddie House, as a foreman. When Johnson’s company cratered in 2014, the now-58-year-old House became self-employed, building farms, leveling pads for chicken houses, and baling hay. It was “pretty steady,” said House, the leathered skin on his arms a badge of decades of work in the sun. But like a lot of out-of-work miners, he couldn’t afford health insurance on the federal exchange, a precarious reality for a life spent around big machines. The promise of Blue Cross Blue Shield from Johnson was a draw, House told me. “But I guess it was mostly just cause I like mining,” he explained. “These are good folks who work hard.”

Since Shannon reopened, distributors and manufacturers across Jefferson County have felt the residual boom. Johnson relies on local dealers for everything from tires and explosives to fuel. Even a Coca-Cola or a fresh pack of nicotine gum (which Johnson chews incessantly): With 20-plus new customers swinging by the Marathon gas station near the mine’s entrance each morning, store clerks are “tickled to death we’re coming through here,” Bailey told me.

“Nothing here comes from Amazon,” Alabama Coal Association President Patrick Cagle told me when I visited the mine, gesturing at the machines scattered across it.

“Coal mining was our lifeblood,” explained Tim Ellis, the manager of GCR Tires near Bessemer, when I reached him by phone. “The day Trump got elected, the mines didn’t open the next morning, but the positivity, the optimism that things would get better—it’s just grown, and it’s really helped us financially. It greatly impacts our autonomy.

“If it had gone the other way with Mrs. Hillary,” he added, “I just don’t know what would’ve happened.”

Johnson chimed in: “If you don’t vote,” he said with a chuckle, “you can’t bitch.”

Good! Russian Military Sets Up 8 Military Outposts Across Syria's Golan Heights For Defense Reader 08/15/2018 (Wed) 01:28:44 Id: b751a5 [Preview] No. 11940 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Resulting from Russia’s declaration that it would be establishing eight militarized outposts along the de facto Syria-Israel border, the UN has been prodded into action, and is re-engaging its own responsibilities to monitor the region. The UN previously was unable to perform, due to pressure from the US, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia chiefly, to pressure the UN not to guard the demilitarized zone.

The result of a lacking UN presence was that the area was more easily used by Israel to provide safe harbor, arms, equipment, and medical care to Al-Qaeda and ISIS groups, under these and several related brands. Russia has been looking for a solution ever since. With the US’s waning influence in the region, and significantly reduced force projection capacity, we entered into a new period.

This had the effect of sending the Zionist entity scrambling in order to seek a better deal, attempting to triangulate US-Russia tensions and the proxy war between the two multi-polar powers in the region. Israel has considerable pull on some pillars of Russian power, enough so that it is able to build its move of desperation into the creation of the perception both domestically and internationally, that its moves here are proactive, and demonstrate an expansion of Israeli power.

Whether a line trotted for domestic consumption or international consumption or both, Israel trumps that it is not only controlling the US Congress through AIPAC and other deeper mechanisms upon the deep state, such as through banking and through pedophile kompromat, but ostensibly also the Russian Duma. A large portion of Israel’s population today are also Russian and former Soviet citizens, holding two passports. In addition, a statistically disproportionate number of Russia’s capitalist class are also Israeli citizens.

In the grand strategies of nations, it is always beneficial when they are able to shape their major strategic activities in ways that can be read multiple ways, by multiple other strategic actors, with each actor having a generally correct read of the activity. This provides tremendous latitude and ability to act. These can be considered ‘dual purpose’ strategies.

At the present moment, nowhere is this practice and this condition more visible than with Russia’s game with Israel. The biggest news recently was that Russia was set to establish eight military outposts, along the de facto border of Israel and Syria, on the Syrian-governed side of the border with the Golan Heights, the region which is presently under an illegal Israeli occupation.

Through a complex system of information war, Russia is using the very same cordoning off of the internet which the US establishment and deep state are set to complete, to disassemble reality. This virtual walled garden is meant to decelerate and frustrate the otherwise natural tendency of the internet towards the cross-pollination and cross-semination of ideas.

This original internet process of cross-pollination leads inevitably to a quickening of the historic process of the same, and previously the internet increased the rate at which this process occurred, which is inherently destabilizing for the powers that be. As the US is cordoning the internet off into various ‘walled gardens’, keeping like with like, it is maintaining a segregative process.

And Russia is doing its best responsive maneuver, at least operationalizing that fact of the US establishing cordoned off internet zones. How this works, is fairly easy to understand. In some sectors of the internet, Russia is promoted as Israel’s greatest ally. In others, the ‘Axis of Resistance’, featuring Iran, Iraq, and Hezbollah of Lebanon, depicts Russia as an important ally. Both are able to point to certain aspects of the conflict in Syria as evidence of this.

This belief creation process, especially through new media and the internet, is a critical part of how simulacra are created in the context of 4GW – fourth generation warfare. Beliefs derived from the internet carry stronger weight at this time than beliefs drawn from television and radio. This is for many reasons, including the role of peer to peer information gathering, and that internet based information was pre-selected and ‘dug for’ by the consumer. This lends it a higher degree of value.

Russia has stated publicly that it is interested in both Iran and Israel’s strategic interests. How can this be, given that both countries are apparently in a proxy, and even recently direct, conflict with one another? In deciphering ‘Lavrovese‘, the language of Russian diplomacy, it must be understood that words have a certain meaning. In terms of Russia’s policy commitments to ‘strategic interests’, this doesn’t mean ‘as these countries view these themselves‘. In other words, Russia is committed to what it, itself, believes are Israel and Iran’s strategic interests, as opposed to what these two countries publicly state their interests are. In short, Russia is committed to Russia’s strategic interests; which do align with the general conception of deconfliction. The idea here is the most balanced compromises that deliver peace as a status quo. Instead of strategic interests, ‘security insurance’ is a better concept to separate this out from Israels irredentist goals or Iran’s foothold in Lebanon. It is neither a problem nor a criticism to state such. Russia has sandbagged its intentions with regard to Israel, and Israel is taking the bait.

Also, there is the fact that Russia is aware that both states, Israel and Iran, engage in a form of demagoguery and rhetorically politicize things beyond what may be the real strategic goal. A war between both countries may not be within either country’s strategic interests, given that Israel is a nuclear power and that Iran’s conventional response would be similarly effective. So all this rhetoric is in fact about containment, playing to their bases, not about mutual destruction, as it is sometimes understood each has called for the other.

Both Iran and Israel have strategic interests in Iraq, with Israel building strong ties with radical Sunni’s in Iraq who despise Iranian Shia’s growth of power. In essence, Iraq has become a proxy border between Israel and Iran. The government of Iraq today is increasingly, and more than nominally so, supportive of Iran. At the same time, through its parliament and private industry, Israel also has a vested interest in Iraq’s natural and mineral resources – oil and water. Moreover, and finally, what Iran and Israel publicly say their strategic interests are, may not match up with their own internal designs and discourse with regard to grand strategy and regional hegemony. Both states have benefited from the US-led invasion of Iraq. Recall at the time that both the US hand-picked ‘secular moderate’ government of Chalabi, and the ‘Shia resistance’ led by al-Sadr’s al-Mahdi Army, represented Iranian vested interest in the US’s campaign

We can see for example here that ‘TruNews’, gives this news an angle that would please those following the ‘Russia is allies with Iran’ part of the internet, even while raising concerns and legal contentions from the POV of Israel. Here they point out a few facts which trend in the direction that supports their view, such as framing it as a Russian deployment that would prevent Israel from striking at Syrian and Iranian targets on the Syrian governed side of the Purple Line.

The standard reportage went like this;

“The Russian military police will create eight outposts near the demilitarized zone at the Golan Heights on the Syrian-Israeli border, a deputy commander of the Russian forces in Syria in charge of of military police, Viktor Zaytsev, said. According to the official, the first permanent observation post of the Russian military police has already been set up. “Seven more will be created in the future. They will serve as a security guarantee for civilians of the Quneitra governorate,” he said. Another deputy commander of the Russian forces in Syria, Sergei Kuralenko, said the outposts will be created near the demilitarized zone, controlled by UN forces. “I would like to stress that there will be no Russian military police posts in the demilitarized zone,” he said. The Golan Heights had been part of Syria since 1944, but the territory was seized by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War.”

When 3,035th White Farmer Shot Dead in South Africa in Front of Wife Reader 08/11/2018 (Sat) 02:15:35 Id: 4406f3 [Preview] No. 11782 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In another of the tens of thousands of horrific armed black attacks against white farm families, a young South African veterinarian was shot dead in Limpopo province next to his nursing wife who was pistol-whipped.

Killed was Dr Paul Meyer, 38. He ran his veterinary practice from a farm near the Selati wildlife reserve in Limpopo province, next to the Mozambican border. Afrikaans journalist Virginia Keppler of Beeld newspaper reports that the young wife, Marilise Meyer, 34, was pistol whipped while she was breastfeeding her baby. The family had been kidnapped with friends Pierre and Sue Gallagher from their homestead kitchen with baby Wouter, 5 months. The four armed black attackers, who spoke a Mozambican language, carried AK47s.

They drove the five white kidnapped people towards the Mozambiquan border at breakneck speed in two farm vehicles which had been stolen from the farm. They stopped a few kilometres short of the border, dumped their kidnap victims next to the roadside, and removed the electronic tracking devices from the robbed farm vehicles.

While they were doing this, they also proceeded to pistol-whip Mrs Meyer while she was breastfeeding baby Wouter in a desperate attempt to keep the baby quiet. They also beat the young wife - who worked as a veterinary assistant at her husband's practice -- across the lower back with a monkey wrench.

Then they shot dead her unarmed husband Dr Paul Meyer, 38, execution style, while he had desperately tried to grab one of the guns from the attackers. The widow is now staying with friends in Gravelotte, where her husband's funeral takes place on Tuesday from the Dutch Reformed Church.

He is the 3,035 th white farm dweller to be murdered in South Africa since 1994. A week earlier at Hartbeespoort near the capitol city of Pretoria, the Raath family was also attacked at their homestead by knifemen who kept stabbing and beating them while screaming that they 'all had to die'. Nothing was robbed.

Mrs Corrie Raath and her husband Pieter said after their ordeal that they both believed that they would be killed there because these attackers had been 'very cruel and had clearly arrived just to kill us.' They were saved when flashing blue lights of an arriving private security guard's vehicle shone through their homestead windows and scared off their attackers. The couple's white German shepherd dog Terry was shot dead, and even their two kittens were slaughtered by the attackers.

Mrs Raath said: “they were very cruel, and had clearly arrived just to kill us. We are moving today. We can’t stay here any longer.' Police did trace down one of the attackers at a nearby squatter camp, said police inspector Moses Manaiwa.

Four days before this attack, 65-year-old livestock farmer David Greig was killed on the Hartzenbergfontein farm near Walkerville near Johannesburg - at exactly the same spot in the kitchen where his mother Hannah had also been shot dead by twelve armed attackers in 1996.

11-Year Old Girl Hacks US Election Website, Debunks Russian Meddling Narrative Reader 08/13/2018 (Mon) 20:53:47 Id: c8add2 [Preview] No. 11875 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

An 11-year old girl has stunned computer experts by hacking into a mid-term election website in just 10 minutes flat.

Ahead of the US midterms this November, the mainstream media has continued to push the ‘Russian meddling’ narrative, warning that Russia are preparing to hack our upcoming election.

However, a recent competition in Las Vegas has cast doubt on that narrative after proving that anybody with basic computer skills can do what the MSM is accusing Russia of.

Rt.com reports: https://archive.fo/jqiAz

Hosted by technology non-profit R00tz Asylum, the competition was held on the sidelines of the annual Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas, where children between the ages of 8 and 17 were tasked with hacking into replica election office websites in key “battleground” states where the upcoming US midterm elections in November are expected to be tight.

Of the 39 contestants who entered, 35 were successful in breaking into the sites with the fastest being 11-year old Audrey Jones. She cracked the site’s code in just 10 minutes.

Could there be a reason NOT to use TOR as convenient as it is?
Or do you like to profile?
You can sage your post none relevant posts, if you know how to use imageboards.
I'm def. not the only person that knows how and why anonymity services should be used.
Saw some weird censorship here: >>11919

I assume you both like censorship?

Weird censorship? The dumbass was claiming I who revealed a Zionist gatekeeper was a kike. That's absolute bullshit and you know it. Typical divide and conquer tactics. People that disagree: no ban. No censorship. People that come on here just to start shit: Rule 3 blatant shitposting. I'll ban any of you if you start this "gas" narrative, calling anyone kike randomly like the JIDF party does all over 8chan. Don't like it? You can leave.
>Could there be a reason NOT to use TOR as convenient as it is?
Also, I'm going to address this. You posted on an ID in the past. Suddenly a shitposter gets banned and you have to use Tor. Such a coincidence, amiright?

You're allowed to call out kikes here. In fact, I encourage it when they're actually jews. Otherwise it's a false flag D&C. Especially when calling out a Zionist, you have to claim the person who revealed them is a kike. Then something's fucky.
I will treat any other /news/ user the same way. You go around calling anyone here a kike without any actual basis and I'll be on you.

New Mexico Judge Releases CIA Niggers Who Were Training Kids To Shoot Up US Schools Reader 08/14/2018 (Tue) 19:52:07 Id: df77b9 [Preview] No. 11906 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A New Mexico judge on Monday agreed to release five suspects arrested on child abuse charges at a New Mexico camp, against the wishes of both the sheriff's department and the FBI, which described the group as "heavily armed and considered extremist(s) of the Muslim belief."

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the suspects - Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35 - released on $20,000 bond each Monday evening, reports the Taos County Sheriff's Office. They will be required to wear ankle monitors and maintain weekly contact with their attorneys, and were ordered to cooperate with the New Mexico Children Youth and Families division (CYFD) where the eleven children the sheriff says were being trained to commit school shootings, are being held in protective custody.

Despite authorities finding a dead child's remains on the compound, and an alleged letter sent from one suspect to his brother inviting him to come to New Mexico and die as a martyr, Judge Backus ruled that the state failed to meet the burden of showing the suspects were a danger to the community after several hours of testimony.

WHAT THE FUCK EXCUSE ME!?

Despite authorities finding a dead child's remains on the compound, and an alleged letter sent from one suspect to his brother inviting him to come to New Mexico and die as a martyr, Judge Backus ruled that the state failed to meet the burden of showing the suspects were a danger to the community after several hours of testimony.

State prosecutors outlined evidence suggesting that at least some of the suspects could have been planning some sort of attack. They said Siraj Wahhaj – who also faces child abduction charges from Georgia after allegedly taking his 3-year-old son – took several weapons classes before coming to New Mexico, and books found on the compound focused on how to build firearms at home.

Various weapons and ammo were found during the raid on August 3, and several more firearms were discovered in subsequent searches. The children were allegedly taught how to load and fire assault rifles.

The 11 kids found at the compound ranged in age from 1 to 15, authorities said. Since the raid they have been placed in the protective custody of state welfare workers with the Children, Youth and Families Department. -KOB.com

Yup, obvious a false flag training operation was up and running and they got caught off-guard by proper surveillance and arrests. Wonder how much the Judge got bribed? Keep track of these goons, I bet they'll be used in a future terror attack.
