Stupid Trump Wants 5G Blasting Radiation All Across America, What The Hell Is He Thinking? Reader 02/21/2019 (Thu) 16:49:19 Id: 64a58e [Preview] No. 14087 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

President Trump has finally hit upon the real issue at the center of the US government's battle with Huawei: It's all about the technology. To wit, one reason why US allies and the UK and Germany have been so hesitant to cut ties with the Chinese telecoms giant is that, as its founder pointed out in a recent interview with Western media, there is no real alternative. US telecoms like Verizon still lag their Chinese rivals when it comes to 5G.

So, in a series of tweets sent Thursday morning, President Trump exclaimed that "I want 5G, and even 6G technology in the United States as soon as possible" and demanded that "American companies must step up their efforts."

I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on.........

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2019

And in what sounded like a concession to Huawei (and a tacit acknowledgement of the real motives behind the US's anti-Huawei campaign), Trump said he would like US companies to "win through competition"...implying that this isn't the case presently.

....something that is so obviously the future. I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies. We must always be the leader in everything we do, especially when it comes to the very exciting world of technology!

The whole point of Trump was to disappoint the majority of his base with his false promises and retarded sperging so that next time they'll vote Democrat and keep the illusion going. Remember when people were sick of Obama's shit? What about Bush Junior? Yeah. That's the game.

Well honestly I think he'll be re-elected, just because he has a very dedicated (and in many ways, brainwashed) base of voters who will always look the other way whenever Trump does something wrong (as he is with 5G and his interventionist policies). I've talked to some of his supporters, even telling them I do support the wall and being tough on border security... but the second I bring up how he's a crony for the Zionists, in bed with the bankers, expanding the police state and empowering the same neo-con "deep state" he allegedly is 'against' they flip out and claim "oh, you just hate Trump, you are just some psyop working with the media" and really that could not be further from the truth. There are some things he does that I do support, but at the same time he's a buffoon on many other issues. My mind is pretty much made up at this point, Trump is controlled opposition. He's making sure that the status-quo is protected while railing against the enemies he's actually protecting.

If you don't want Trump to be president come 2020, then his fans need to be forced to wake up and snap out of it before he runs again. The thing that really scares me is we literally have NO ONE running in 2020 that is any better, I'm aware about Mr. Sanders (he's right about A FEW issues) but overall he's just another stooge that will protect the same status-quo while railing against it. Therefore I'd just recommend being prepared for the worst case scenarios, do your best to not depend on this corrupt system, become self-sufficient and stick by your guns because at some point we'll be needing them.

My take is they will slowly but surely boost up the radiation from 5G over a timeline, and incrementally kill us off (as cancer rates continue to skyrocket, same as birth defects and other issues like lowered sperm rates in males). Big Pharma will be making Trillions $$$ more in profits over the next two decades as their depopulation agenda is finally fulfilled. They may also use 5G to target communities that won't go along with gun confiscation among other things too. They'll amplify the output till those smaller rural areas end up ghost towns so they won't have to deal with the bad PR over any military aggression against those opposed to their schemes. Its a win-win for the kike central bankers and their puppet bureaucrats and industries that profit off death and misery sadly.

My recommendation: look into EMF protection, there are a few tricks to mitigate 5G but it does cost a pretty penny. There are specialized paints out there that act as faraday cages when you cover your walls and ceilings with it. Everything will need to be properly grounded when using those conductive paints and it will cost a couple grand at the very least. Perhaps at least turn off all your WiFi routers/modems at night or when not in use. Or go back to using a wired modem, and having everything else hardwired. It would at least mitigate some of that radiation thats being blasted across your home. If you use a cell phone, use an older flip phone and only talk with the speaker on, don't press it against your head.



Man From Venezuela Wants To Warn All American Leftists Their Policies Don't Work Well Reader 02/22/2019 (Fri) 04:05:21 Id: c6bc5e [Preview] No. 14095 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
While neither ‘Medicare for All’ nor a wealth tax will turn America into Venezuela overnight, all it would take is a series of catastrophic policies.

The first time I couldn’t buy food at the grocery store, I was 15 years old. It was 2014 in Caracas, Venezuela, and I had spent more than an hour in line waiting. When I got to the register, I noticed I had forgotten my ID that day. Without the ID, the government rationing system would not let the supermarket sell my family the full quota of food we needed. It was four days until the government allowed me to buy more.

This was fairly normal for me. All my life, I lived under socialism in Venezuela until I left and came to the United States as a student in 2016. Because the regime in charge imposed price controls and nationalized the most important private industries, production plummeted. No wonder I had to wait hours in lines to buy simple products such as toothpaste or flour.

And the shortages went far beyond the supermarket.

My family and I suffered from blackouts and lack of water. The regime nationalized electricity in 2007 in an effort to make electricity “free.” Unsurprisingly, this resulted in underinvestment in the electrical grid. By 2016, my home lost power roughly once a week.

Our water situation was even worse. Initially, my family didn’t have running water for only about one day per month, but as the years passed we sometimes went several weeks straight without it.

For all these problems, the regime has blamed an iguana, right-wing sabotage and even the weather.

The excuses for these shortages were hollow: In reality, Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world to use for electricity, and three times more fresh water resources per person than the United States. The real reason my family went without water and electricity was the socialist economy instituted by dictators Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro.

The welfare programs, many minimum-wage hikes and nationalizations implemented by their regimes resulted in a colossal government deficit that the central bank covered by simply printing more money — leading to rampant inflation. Now, prices double every few weeks, and the standard of living continues to plummet.

This isn't exactly "national socialism" that /pol/ would support though.

What they should have done is made sure (((foreign entities))) were not able to buy up domestic industries or outsource their industries to other nations. You don't exactly need the government to run the whole economy, you simply need some common sense restrictions/laws to prevent that from happening. Industries could (and should have) remained private, but under certain strict guidelines to remain domestically owned and run. Know what I mean?

The US is by no means a perfect place either, but at the same time our problems are no where near as bad as most people face in Venezuela. I'm one who agrees the US needs to mind our own affairs and not intervene in other nations' affairs, so I don't support Trump meddling with Venezuela. I say we let them 'fix' their own problems, however we should also learn from some of their mistakes and they have made some mistakes. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is trusting kikes, or a corrupt bureaucracy (which often is infiltrated with these parasites) to run your whole economy. That was a big misake trusting the government to 'fix' things.

Venezuela is rich in resources, what I think they should do is allow private civil entrepreneurs/businessmen who live there to create industries with a few mandates: no outsourcing, no selling stocks or shares to foreign entities (ie a private yet closed corporation), keep the businesses domestic run and operated.

https://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Closed+Corporation

A closed corporation is not nationalized, its privatized, however only the ownership owns, it cannot be bought up by any other (((individuals))), it does not sell stocks or shares on the open market either. Its typically family run, domestic only.

True. Venezuela's troubles are due to Marxian Socialism, and they have escalated under kike Maduro. Marxism is anti-property; true socialism is not. Marxism places no value on the individual, or individual effort, or efficiency; true Socialism values the individual and holds that they must correspond with the culture, values and traditions of the community. Karl Marx did not invent Socialism. Mazdak the Zoroastrian did. Marx only perverted it, as his kind does with everything.

It depends where in America you're referring. What about the endless homeless on sidewalks in major cities, or those living in trailer parks below the poverty level?
>I say we let them 'fix' their own problems
I believe Maduro needs to be assassinated, as all of his kind who take over nations they don't belong to. Other than that, yes, let Venezuela's own people take care of them. The same needs to happen in the US. Whether legal or illegal immigrants, or with semitic blood, none of the aforementioned should hold positions of power here. Which is what the founding fathers intended before the parasites perverted the ground rules. In America, that would be Nordic people, not "Native Americans" as is commonly lied about. Outsiders belong in their own nations.

Agreed. Since they've hyperinflated their own currency (and the US is soon to follow), both nations require reissued, not fiat, money with a physical commodity. Not simply "hard money", as it is very easy for corruption to set in and turn it around to fiat. Also, these closed corporations need to require unbiased not bribed state inspections to make sure they conform to serving the working class, not subjecting them. CEOs, board members, chairmen and management all need to be held accountable by state officials outside of their influence. Obviously, a CEO with millions to burn as his employees struggle to make due is not being held accountable.

Zionist Tommy Robinson: “If There Was a War Tomorrow.. I Would be There in the Front Line Fighting for Israel” Reader Board owner 02/21/2019 (Thu) 23:16:58 Id: 2a7877 [Preview] No. 14093 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
"Renegade Editor’s Note: I know this piece is not sympathetic to our cause, but I understand how frustrating it can seem for people in the Middle East when they see all of these “White supremacist” talking heads all over the media praising israel. They want to make it seem like all nationalists who oppose White genocide have to support the state of israel. We need to completely denounce ALL of them, but unfortunately we have so many shills that promote people like Tommy Robinson, Richard Spencer, and other “White Zionists” and crypto bolsheviks. For example, former Renegade writer Mike Walsh only has praise for Tommy. Same thing with Kevin MacDonald."

"Far-right, anti-Muslim, self-declared Zionist Tommy Robinson has boasted of his love for Israel in leaked video footage, in which the founder of the English Defence League (EDL) can be seen bragging about “scoring” drugs anywhere in the world. The video – which is thought to have been filmed in Bologna, Italy last month – shows the 35-year-old right-wing activist walking down the street on his own. In the selfie video Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, brags: “No matter where I’ve gone in the world, I score. I will show you tonight.” He then calls for a taxi to visit a pub, presumably to demonstrate that he can access drugs wherever he goes."

"Boasting of his unique talent to “score” Robinson, despite a number of criminal convictions including cocaine possession, says: “I’ve gone to Qatar, I’ve gone to Doha and scored gear on the sesh [a night out] while they’re all praying. In another section of the video, Robison can be seen singing that he is “king of the whole Islam race,” before declaring his love for Israel. The far-right campaigner has become something of a favourite among notorious pro-Israel groups. Some have even admitted to paying for Robinson’s legal costs and “bringing foreign pressure on the UK government to ensure Mr. Robinson’s safety and eventual release”.

"In the video, Robinson gives the impression that his love affair with Israel is paying off by admitting that on occasions he has to “get [his] Zionist card out which says that [he is] a Zionist”, after which he claims he “bought everything”. The footage ends with Robinson saying: “Palestine! F*ck Palestine. Why would you support Palestine,” adding: “If there was a war tomorrow, which probably there would be, I would be there in the front line fighting for Israel”. The footage – released by the Sun – captures the growing bond between the far-right and Israel." [Whining about "racists" removed.]

"Leaders of the far-right – like white nationalist Richard Spencer [bullshit about harboring "Nazi sympathies" removed] gave a ringing endorsement to Israel’s Nation-State Law saying: “I have great admiration for Israel’s nation-state law. Jews are, once again, at the vanguard, rethinking politics and sovereignty for the future, showing a path forward for Europeans.” In another incident, a former Israeli soldier who was a member of Tommy Robinson’s campaign addressed protestors on a London street saying: “no matter what the left call us, I am the world’s proudest Jewish Nazi”. The trend has led to what critics are describing as “the unholy alliance between Israel and alt-right ideologues”. They say that what unites Israel, far-right ideologue Steve Bannon and Spencer more than anything else is their animosity towards the liberal left, Islam and global institutions like the UN, which prioritises a global order based on the rule of law over assertive ethno-religious nationalism."

Tommy is right about the immigration problem, but thinks because Jews have sovereignty in Israel that somehow they are "on our side." He either is controlled opposition (that very well could be) or is very naive and brainwashed.

This equivalent would be like me saying "I don't want to live in tyranny, but I do support politicians who want to confiscate firearms from citizens." Can't have it both ways.

The story about Tommy shows many similarities with Geert Wilders, the dutch "extreme" right politician. Geert is being financed by jewish benefactors, they pay his security for example. In return he has become a one issue politician: Islam is the root of all evil.

Venezuelan Soldiers Open Fire On Civilian Aid Near Brazil Border, Trump Calls For War Reader 02/22/2019 (Fri) 21:01:37 Id: b503b4 [Preview] No. 14109 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Just hours after Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said a U.S. humanitarian aid convoy for Venezuela could provoke clashes and create a pretext for removing President Nicolas Maduro, a staunch Russian ally, from power by force, The Washington Post reports, according to an eye-witnesses and community leaders, that Venezuelan soldiers opened fire on a group of civilians attempting to keep open a segment of the southern border with Brazil for deliveries of humanitarian aid, leading to multiple injuries and the first fatality.

President Nicolas Maduro had warned that the aid is a pretext for a U.S. intervention and had locked down his nation.

The Washington Post details the deadly events started at 6:30 a.m. on Friday, a military convoy approached a checkpoint set up by an indigenous community in the southern village of Kumarakapai, that rests on the main artery linking Venezuela to Brazil. When the volunteers sought to block the military vehicles by standing in front of them, soldiers began firing assault rifles, wounding at least 12 people, four of them seriously. One woman, Zorayda Rodriguez, 42, was killed.

UPDATE: Americo De Grazia, Deputy of the National Assembly, has confirmed on Twitter that a second person has died in the border clashes.

Notably, Reuters reports that Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday accused the United States and its NATO allies of discussing how to arm the opposition in Venezuela and alleged Washington was deploying special forces and equipment near the South American nation. Moscow cited unspecified information to back its assertion about the plans to arm the opposition, but did not say what that information was or present it.

Of course this now opens the door to more direct US intervention. How long until we get the tweet from Trump that "Maduro is 'massacring' his people so US has an obligation to intervene"?

As we're all (or at least should be) familiar with, the last time he tried this with Assad it was Tomahawk missiles where some missed and hit civilians. I for one don't give a shit if Maduro dies, but Venezuelans will be massacred. Then future US children will be told "we were the good guys". It's all happened before.

Good! US Supreme Court Rules To Limit States' Ability To Seize Property, Impose Fines Reader 02/22/2019 (Fri) 04:07:58 Id: 9631f4 [Preview] No. 14097 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The US Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Wednesday that the Excessive Fines Clause in the 8th Amendment applies to state and local governments.

Announced in an opinion written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on her second day back on the bench following a December cancer surgery, the ruling limits states' abilities to seize property and impose fines deemed excessive on citizens who break the law.

"For good reason, the protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history: Exorbitant tolls undermine other constitutional liberties," wrote Ginsburg, as the court sided with Tyson Timbs of Marion Indiana, whose $42,000 Land Rover SUV was seized by the state following a guilty plea for selling $385 worth of heroin to an undercover detective.

Following a plea bargain, Timbs was sentenced to a year of home detention followed by five years of probation, as well as $1,200 in fees.

"Excessive fines can be used, for example, to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies . . . Even absent a political motive, fines may be employed in a measure out of accord with the penal goals of retribution and deterrence."

Timbs drew wide support from civil liberties organizations, according to the Washington Post.

Other USSC Justices were highly critical of property seizures and fines, with Justice Clarence Thomas suggesting that civil forfeitures had become "widespread and highly profitable."

“This system — where police can seize property with limited judicial oversight and retain it for their own use — has led to egregious and well-chronicled abuses,” Thomas wrote, referring to reporting by The Washington Post and the New Yorker.

At oral argument, Timbs’s lawyer said the case was a simple matter of “constitutional housekeeping.” -Washington Post

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) says it is exploring legal options to claw back $2.5 billion from California in federal funds which have already been spent on the ill-fated statewide high-speed rail system, according to the New York Times.

The Trump administration is also canceling a $929 million grant which was allocated to the California High-Speed Rail Authority detailed in a letter from DOT, just one week after California Governor Newsom announced that the project had been derailed by cost overruns and numerous delays. Instead of canceling the entire project, however, Newsom announced that the state will focus on finishing the line currently under construction, running 171 miles from Merced to Bakersfield - and could open as soon as 2027.

The decision to yank the grant money and claw back the billions in federal funds comes one day after California filed a lawsuit along with 15 other states challenging President Trump's emergency declaration on the border.

The $77 billion Los Angeles-to-San Francisco bullet train, which has been a goal of California transportation planners for decades, has long faced opposition from Mr. Trump and other Republicans. But on Tuesday morning, the president explicitly tied the rail line to efforts to stymie construction of the Mexican border wall. -New York Times

Trump slammed California's decision to sue, noting on Tuesday over Twitter that "The failed Fast Train project in California, where the cost overruns are becoming world record setting, is hundreds of times more expensive than the desperately needed Wall!"

Maduro Closes Border With Brazil To Prevent Regime Change Reader 02/21/2019 (Thu) 22:04:45 Id: c3c4d9 [Preview] No. 14092 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Venezuela's embattled President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the border with Brazil to be closed in response to opposition leaders vowing to facilitate entry of foreign humanitarian aid, especially US aid shipments, from neighboring nations.

Maduro declared closure of the border during a state television address, in which he also said he's considering shutting down Venezuela's border with Colombia as well. The opposition, led by US-backed Juan Guaido, has said it plans to mount caravans to ensure aid is brought in from both Colombia and Brazil, in order to undermine and otherthrow the Maduro government.

The drastic action is being taken tonight, Maduro said, in order to "protect the people" while further repeating his charge that American attempts to send aid into the country is a US-orchestrated "political show" in order to foment coup against his elected government.

National Assembly head Guaido, meanwhile, has personally vowed to lead a convoy to receive aid shipments from across the Colombian border. "On February 23, humanitarian aid will enter Venezuela one way or another," the self-declared president said earlier this month.

The provocative move to undermine Maduro's power has been acknowledged as just that by the opposition, who've recently openly stated that the "humanitarian channel" is a direct political jab at Caracas. Though the tons of much needed aid, including food and medicine supplies, is reportedly piling up along border points especially in Colombia, it's anything but merely "benevolent" - the opposition acknowledges.

"The impact of the humanitarian aid is highly political," Juan Miguel Matheus, an MP for the opposition told CNN this week. "Our first and primary goal is to provide relief for the Venezuelan population, but after that, with this move we want to checkmate Maduro."

"If the aid gets in, Maduro is shown to have lost control of the situation; if it doesn't get in, we show that Maduro doesn't care for the suffering of the people," he added.

Federal Prosecutors Broke Law In Jeffrey Epstein Child Sex Trafficking Case, Judge Rules Reader 02/21/2019 (Thu) 22:02:41 Id: e8b230 [Preview] No. 14091 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A judge ruled Thursday that federal prosecutors — among them, U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — broke federal law when they signed a plea agreement with a wealthy, politically connected sex trafficker and concealed it from more than 30 of his underage victims.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra, in a 33-page opinion, said that the evidence he reviewed showed that Jeffrey Epstein had been operating an international sex operation in which he and others recruited underage girls — not only in Florida — but from overseas, in violation of federal law.

“Epstein used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him.,’’ wrote Marra, who is based in Palm Beach County. “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification, but also for the sexual gratification of others.’’

Instead of prosecuting Epstein under federal sex trafficking laws, Acosta, then the U.S. attorney in Miami, helped negotiate a non-prosecution agreement that gave Epstein and his co-conspirators immunity from federal prosecution. Epstein, who lived in a Palm Beach mansion, was allowed to quietly plead guilty in state court to two prostitution charges and served just 13 months in the county jail. His accomplices, some of whom have never been identified, were never charged.

Robert Mueller’s FBI was using pedophile Jeffrey Epstein as an informant in 2008.

Jeffrey Epstein is a friend of the Clinton family, who ran the “Lolita Express” to his private island.

Documents released by the FBI pertaining to Clinton-connected pedophile Jeffrey Epstein show that the known child predator had a professional relationship with then-FBI Director Robert S. Mueller.

Good! Man Who Refuses to Pay Taxes Until Abortion Is Defunded Wins Huge Court Victory Reader 02/21/2019 (Thu) 16:53:57 Id: 1cda80 [Preview] No. 14089 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A Christian man who refuses to pay his taxes until the government stops funding abortion has won an historic lawsuit against the IRS.

Michael Bowman has refused to file a tax return or pay taxes since 1999. “I’m not a tax protester. I love my country,” he told reporters. “I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience.”

The IRS has sent him numerous warnings over unpaid taxes from 2002 to 2014, and in 2012 the Oregon Department of Revenue began garnishing money from Bowman’s bank account. In response, he started cashing out his paychecks and leaving only a minimum balance in his account.

This, federal prosecutors say, constituted “remov[ing] his income from the reach of taxing authorities.” They indicted him for felony tax evasion in the amount of $356,857, as well as four misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file tax returns.

Bowman’s attorney, Matthew Schindler, argued that his client was fully transparent every step of the way, from disclosing all of his paychecks to cashing them at his own bank, under his own name.

“Like a player collapsing as they lose Twister, the government has reached too far forward and stretched way too far back,” his motion to dismiss read.

Last week, US District Judge Michael Mosman sided with Bowman on the felony charge, ruling that the feds failed to show he attempted to conceal income or deceive the government. Prosecutors remain free to re-introduce the charge in the future, and are currently weighing whether to do so.
