West Virginia Lawmakers Move To Impeach Entire State Supreme Court Reader 08/12/2018 (Sun) 15:53:29 Id: ab7252 [Preview] No. 11828 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
West Virginia’s House Judiciary Committee moved to impeach the state’s entire Supreme Court this week.

The committee filed 14 articles of impeachment against the four judges on Tuesday, and they will now go to the full House of Delegates for a vote.

The articles allege the justices – Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justices Allen Loughry, Robin Davis and Elizabeth Walker – have engaged in corruption, incompetency, neglect of duty, maladministration and certain high crimes.

The justices are also accused of “wasteful spending of taxpayer funds on lavish office renovations,” using public vehicles for personal matters and creating a plan to pay certain senior judges more than is lawful, the committee said.

“This is truly a sad day for West Virginia, but it is an important step forward if we are going to restore the public’s confidence in the judiciary,” state Rep. John Shott, a Republican who chairs the judiciary committee, said in a statement. “This committee did not take this effort lightly. After reviewing all the evidence available to us, it became clear that a culture of entitlement and disregard for both the law and taxpayer funds have damaged the reputation of our judicial system – and that all justices had a part in violating the public’s trust.”

Aside from the articles of impeachment, Loughry was previously suspended for allegedly repeatedly lying about using his office for personal gain. He pleaded not guilty in federal court in June to multiple counts involving alleged fraud.

His trial is expected to begin in early October. If convicted, he faces up to 395 years in prison and $5.5 million in fines.

Among the offenses, Loughry is accused of using a government vehicle and credit card on personal trips, and unlawfully converting a historically significant piece of furniture for his own use – a desk that belonged to famed architect Cass Gilbert. He has also been charged with attempting to corruptly obstruct and influence testimonial evidence of a Supreme Court employee in an imminent grand jury investigation.

State Rep. Barbara Fleischauer, a Democrat, told the Charleston Gazette-Mail that the lumping of all the justices together in the articles of impeachment seemed to be a “coup,” of sorts, to help Republican Gov. Jim Justice appoint his choices to the court.

Good! New Mexico Regulation Commission Says NO To Mandatory 5G Smart Meter Grid Reader 08/12/2018 (Sun) 15:51:17 Id: 454b47 [Preview] No. 11827 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Whoever would even have guessed a state public utility commission would reject the New World Order’s and the UN’s Agendas 21 and 2030 “smart agenda” for asserting and implementing global control mechanisms by deliberately DISAPPROVING a utility company’s proposal to retrofit AMI Smart Meters on to its customers’ electric service? AMI Smart Meters are an integral link in the coming Internet of Things, smart cities, and possibly other control mechanisms.

Well, there is relief for many residents of the State of New Mexico regarding their not having to suffer the forced retrofitting, non-ionizing radiation and non-thermal adverse health effects of AMI Smart Meters, also now being called “digital meters” due to the negative connotations of the term “AMI Smart Meter.”

The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission did their due diligence and acted responsibly in the interests of NM citizens and the Precautionary Principle.

I congratulate them heartily, and wish other states regulatory commissions had such integrity.

Here is the 121-page Decision of the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission against Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM), which summarizes the application, hearing and the obvious thoughtful processes that went on at the NM Public Regulation Commission to determine:

The [smart meter] plan presented in the Application does not provide a net public benefit and it does not promote the public interest.

Debt Insolvency In America, And Where To Avoid It Reader 08/12/2018 (Sun) 04:34:52 Id: 7d2949 [Preview] No. 11816 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There is a new map going around exposing the most expensive cities in the US to live. 4 out of 5 of the most costly places to live are in Commiefornia (go figure).

These are not ordinary "million dollar homes", but regular middle class homes that cost $1 million or more to live in. This is due to massive debt insolvency, unpunished corruption within the market place and local governments as well as too much beurocracy which kills industry and growth.

Here are the Top 10 MOST EXPENSIVE cities to live in the US today:

Rank | City | % of $1mm homes | Median home price
#1 | San Jose, CA | 53.81% | $1,069,000
#2 | San Francisco, CA | 40.03% | $891,000
#3 | Los Angeles, CA | 17.23% | $622,000
#4 | New York, NY |11.81% | $454,000
#5 | San Diego, CA | 10.55% | $563,000
#6 | Seattle, WA | 9.90% | $461,000
#7 | Boston, MA | 7.95% | $459,000
#8 | Washington, DC | 5.27% | $395,000
#9 | Miami, FL | 3.79% | $267,000
#10 | Denver, CO | 2.65% | $391,000

Apparently surging violent crime, massive tax hikes and insolvent public pensions are bad for attracting new residents...who knew? On the other hand, 364 days of sunshine per year, minimal crime, brand new infrastructure and some of the lowest tax rates in the country seems to be, to our complete shock, somewhat appealing to folks looking to relocate.

But that is just a couple of many interesting takeaways to be gleaned from the latest annual "U.S. Migration Report" from North American Moving Services which found that Illinois was the most ditched state in 2017.

A quick review of the data above, combined with the more comprehensive domestic migration map below, reveals a few other interesting themes:

1. People continue to flee the indebted, pension ponzi burdened liberal states of America in record numbers, with Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey and California all ranking at the very top of the most ditched states of 2017.

2. The natural migratory pattern of New England and California's liberal elitists seems to be toward cheaper and lower taxed states in the Southeast and Western portions of the country... go figure.

Of course, this data from North American shouldn't come as much of a surprise as we recently noted that Illinois lost a staggering ~125,000 residents in aggregate, or roughly 1 man/woman/child every 4.3 minutes for the entire year of 2017.

In fact, recent Census Bureau numbers also confirmed that the mass exodus from Illinois was the largest of any state in the country with lower taxed, lower cost of living states like Texas and Florida posting the biggest gains.

SUBJUGATED SHITHOLE COUNTRY: Dutch Politician Raped By Muslim Gang Commits Suicide Reader 08/11/2018 (Sat) 19:00:18 Id: c3ca69 [Preview] No. 11803 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A city councilor in The Hague and member of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party has taken her own life, hours after posting a video on Facebook in which she claimed she was gang-raped by Muslims as part of an intimidation campaign.

Willie Dille, 53, reportedly ended her own life on Wednesday, two days after sharing a video on social media in which she claimed to have been kidnapped and raped by a Muslim gang over a year ago.

Dille served as an MP for the anti-immigrant Freedom Party from 2010-2012 before returning to her seat on The Hague city council. The party’s leader, Geert Wilders, is an outspoken critic of Islam. The suicide was confirmed by local Freedom Party leader Karen Gerbrands who said Dille “could no longer bear what had happened to her and the reactions she had had.”

Appearing distressed and looking around nervously as she spoke, Dille said in the video that the gang demanded her silence during council debates and that she had recently received a death threat warning that “we will soon cut your throat and let you bleed to death."

“I just want the world to know the truth. 15 March 2017 I was kidnapped, raped and assaulted by a group of Muslims because they wanted me to keep quiet in the Hague city council,” she said in the video. March 15th last year was the day of the parliamentary elections. “After it happened, I did not tell anyone, I just did my debates the next day.”

She added that she was leaving politics because she was afraid that someone might hurt her children. “I cannot live with that. They don't like women at all. They don't like me at all,” she said. “That's why I decided to stop.”

The video was censored shortly after it was posted online.

Police confirmed to RT that Dille posted the video on social media on August 6 and died on August 8. They also said that authorities had contact with Dille "on multiple occasions in the past period, concerning the incidents she claimed had happened to her.

UNITE THE KIKE AND ANTIFA CONTROLLED OPS CALLED OUT, STATE-RUN SOCIAL MEDIA SHUTS THE TRUTH DOWN!

Conservatives across the country have been sounding the alarm over this weekend's "Unite the Right II" anniversary rally in Washington D.C.'s Lafayette Park. Those on the right ranging from Dinesh D'Souza to Jack Posobiec to 4chan users have called the event everything from a bad idea to a trap designed to sow discord ahead of midterm elections.

In anticipation of violence, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency, stating “I am urging Virginians to make alternative plans" to avoid the event- while the Alt-Right Exposed blog noted that a left-wing "Resist" group called Shut It Down is planning to confront attendees.

A setup?

Fueling speculation that the event is a setup is organizer Jason Kessler - a known provocateur who was a leftist "Occupy" activist less than two years ago, only to be kicked out of gatherings after he allegedly advocated for violence against the police.

“I don’t remember exactly what he brought with him, but it was very violent in nature,” he says. “He quickly went from talking about this and that to ‘we need to have Molotov cocktails’ and ‘we need to dig up the bricks to throw them at the cops.'” - WINA.com

Kessler also had a Jewish girlfriend, two roommates from Africa and even performed African revenge-porn poetry in 2014 - slamming the "evil" white man for stealing natural resources and African women. Not exactly material for a David Duke rally - a former KKK grand wizard who will be speaking at this weekend's Unite the Right event.

In 2017, as noted by journalist and pundit Ali Alexander, the Proud Boys disavowed the original Unite the Right rally:

In a rare decision, Gavin McInnes has officially announced that the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, scheduled on August 12th, has been disavowed. I personally am not surprised by this. The rally is not about “uniting the right,” it is an attempt to lump civic-nationalists in with ethno-nationalists in order to make them seem like the same thing.

FUCK.
THAT.

Of course, this didn't stop publications from linking the Proud Boys ban to support of Unite the Right II after McInnes was banned.

Variety ran with the headline, “Twitter Shuts Down Accounts of Vice Co-Founder Gavin McInnes, Proud Boys Ahead of ‘Unite the Right’ Rally” and leftwing The Hill screamed, “Twitter suspends far-right “Proud Boys” accounts ahead of “Unite the Right” rally” atop of its coverage. Mashable tried linking the group with the rally exclaiming, “Twitter suspends Proud Boys before white supremacist rally.” -Ali Alexander

There's a coordinated effort to frame the #ProudBoys. I've been quiet and observing it. Screenshot this.

What's more, Twitter has reportedly been blocking links to the Proud Boys website:

That's not all it is. The goal is clearly to villainize those of Indo-European descent and make the drooling public believe in "neo nazi violence" while those provocateurs are jewish. It's similar to Rabbis painting the swastika on jewish tombstones and synagogues, only on a larger scale. ZOG loves their false flags.

Good! Populist Government of Italy Begins Rolling Back Dangerous Draconian Vaccine Mandates Reader 08/11/2018 (Sat) 14:12:49 Id: 85f080 [Preview] No. 11793 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A row is erupting over vaccines in Italy as the country's new populist government fights to roll back a law that bans children from attending school if they haven't received a series of jabs.

The law, adopted last year by the centre-left government that was booted out of power in March, made it compulsory for children in pre-school education to be vaccinated against 10 diseases, including measles, tetanus and poliomyelitis.

Parents who have not vaccinated their children by the time they reach school age (six years old in Italy) face a fine of up to 500 euros.

The new administration -- formed of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement and the nationalist League -- is leading the charge against the law.

Last week, the upper house Senate approved an amendment proposed by Five Star and the League pushing back enforcement of compulsory vaccination for pre-schoolers to the 2019-20 school year, pending a complete revision of the law after the summer recess.

New health minister Giulia Grillo, from Five Star, has drafted a new bill introducing what she calls a "flexible obligation", giving priority to education on the benefits of vaccines, encourages use of compulsory vaccination only over short periods and instances when the coverage rate is too low.

“We were finally able to show the jury the secret, internal Monsanto documents proving that Monsanto has known for decades that ... Roundup could cause cancer,” Johnson’s lawyer Brent Wisner said in a statement. The verdict, he added, sent a “message to Monsanto that its years of deception regarding Roundup is over and that they should put consumer safety first over profits”.

Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades.

Speaking in San Francisco on Friday, Johnson said that the jury’s verdict is far bigger than his lawsuit. He said he hopes the case bolsters the thousands of similar lawsuits pending against the company and brings national attention to the issue.

Microsoft Threatens to Shut Down Gab After Anti-Semitic Posts by User Reader 08/10/2018 (Fri) 16:28:48 Id: e1dcf5 [Preview] No. 11769 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Microsoft Azure, the web hosting provider for Gab, has given the company 48 hours to delete some anti-Semitic posts or face a Big Tech shut-down. Gab is a Twitter alternative that claims to protect the right to free speech. It's not a very good alternative, as the numbers just aren't there to keep it interesting. Most of the time it's just righties and ultra-righties fighting amongst themselves. But Gab's claim to fame is that they won't kick people off for having unpopular views or engaging in insult trading that morons refer to as "hate speech." For some, that's a worthwhile promise.

It should be noted that in America the term "hate speech" is not a legal one, at least according to the Supreme Court. So-called "hate speech," be it racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic or just plain mean, is protected as reaffirmed in Matal v. Tam in 2017. "Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express 'the thought that we hate,'" wrote Justice Alito.

It is, therefore, maddening when tech companies attempt to infringe on the public's right to speak (acting like the government) based on a specious "hate speech" claim, which is whatever they say it is because there is no legal definition. In America, speech that is obscene or incites violence is the only speech that is unprotected. Microsoft laughably claimed that the posts in question were "incitement to violence." While not pleasant, when I read them I had the urge to point and laugh, not hurt anyone. The Gab poster who caused all this uproar is some kind of stunted jackanape who stands out on the street corner with signs about how the bad Jooos hurt him or something. Really, who has time for this? But at the same time, why do we care? Why are we even giving this person air time? Oh, that's right... because Microsoft put him in the spotlight instead of ignoring him and letting him fade away into obscurity where they found him. Thanks, Microsoft!

I'll not be naming the blundering fool here because no one should give him any attention. It's enough to say he has the right to have the opinions most of us don't share and be done with it. Do we really have to analyze what he said to decide if he has the right to say it? Whatever it was, he can lose his job if his employer doesn't like it or suffer social consequences like everyone else who posts dumb things. But Microsoft has decided that an entire website can be taken offline because their gatekeepers don't like some posts a user made. How is this Microsoft's business? Gab pays for the hosting service from Microsoft Azure. How Gab runs its business is not up for discussion by Microsoft (or it shouldn't be). How do we know Big Tech isn't colluding and conspiring to get rid of competition? Has Microsoft has ever threatened Twitter?

Well maybe Gab is not the best alternative. I'll give them credit for trying. Someone needs to form a P2P "twitter" platform, hell they could rip-off the same exact platform, call it "Tweet-2-Tweet" or something like that. Release it, mirror it all over the web and advertise the hell out of it via alternative media. By the time anyone wants to take it down, TOO LATE. Enough anons will be sharing copies of it and they won't be able to stop such a decentralized service. There, all censorship null and void, no one controls it but the individual users.



Turkish Currency Collapses! Reader 08/10/2018 (Fri) 12:38:52 Id: c5532e [Preview] No. 11756 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Turkish currency crisis is finally here and it is sending shockwaves around the globe.

After weeks of a slow, but controlled collapse, investors finally hit the panic button overnight, when the Turkish lira crashed as much as 11.2% against the dollar as concern over contagion from Europe’s exposure to the Turkish economic devastation overshadowed promises by the Turkish government to bolster the economy.

The Turkish Lira plunged to a record low of 6.3005 per dollar on Friday morning, before rebounding modestly to 5.88, and is now down more than 35% in the year to date.

Friday's fall has made the Turkish Lira the worst performing emerging market currency in 2018 and as the currency was headed for its worst week since 2001, its YTD collapse has surpassed even the Argentine Peso.

Heading into today's much anticipated speech by Turkey's president Erdogan, market expectations were high for at least a trace of conciliation; some analysts even expressed hopes that the central bank, i.e. Erdogan, would greenlight a rate hike as follows:

Fidelity: 1000bps would be a "good start"
SocGen: 600bps
ADM's Ostwald: 500bps + IMF's bailout
UBS: 350-400bps

Russia Condemns New Draconian Sanctions, Weighs Banning Rocket Engines To US Reader 08/10/2018 (Fri) 14:52:20 Id: 94403a [Preview] No. 11758 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A furious Russia condemned a new round of U.S. sanctions as "draconian" on Thursday and threatened to retaliate as news of the measures sent the ruble tumbling to two-year lows and sparked a wider asset sell-off over fears that Moscow was locked in a spiral of never-ending sanctions.

“Such measures are absolutely unfriendly and can hardly be associated with the constructive - difficult but constructive - atmosphere at the last meeting of the two presidents,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on a conference call.

As reported yesterday, in the latest diplomatic attack launched by Trump, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday it would impose fresh sanctions by the month’s end after determining that Moscow had used a nerve agent against a former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, in Britain, something Moscow denies. The latest sanction announcement came just days after a bipartisan group of senators proposed a law mandating “crushing sanctions” - including on purchase of new sovereign debt and on big state banks - to punish Russia for election interference.

As NBC first reported, the new sanctions would come in two tranches:

The first, which targets U.S. exports of sensitive national-security related goods, comes with deep exemptions and many of the items it covers have already been banned by previous restrictions.

The second and more serious tranche, activated after 90 days if Moscow fails to provide “reliable assurances” it will no longer use chemical weapons and allow on-site inspections by the United Nations or other international observer groups, could include downgrading diplomatic relations, suspending the state airline Aeroflot’s ability to fly to the United States and cutting off nearly all exports and imports.

The added sanctions could include a downgrading in diplomatic relations, blanket bans on the import of Russian oil and exports of “all other goods and technology” aside from agricultural products, as well as limits on loans from U.S. banks. The U.S. also would have to suspend aviation agreements and oppose any multilateral development bank assistance.

Russia’s embassy in the United States responded to the diplomatic escalation, calling the new U.S. sanctions "draconian" and said the reason for the new restrictions, allegations it had poisoned the Skripals in Britain, was fabricated and far-fetched, and said Washington’s "findings" against it in the Skripal case were not backed by evidence.

“On August 8, 2018 our Deputy Chief of Mission was informed in the State Department of new ‘draconian’ sanctions against Russia for far-fetched accusations of using the ‘Novichok’ nerve agent against a UK citizen,” the embassy said in a statement.
