While Gun-confiscation Advocates Argue Against Safety Measures In Schools, Teachers Now Arming Up Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 18:17:41 Id: 5e35f9 [Preview] No. 6739 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

An odd thing has happened. Advocates for gun control have actually begun arguing against practical measures addressing school security. Rather than take strategies that can be implemented virtually immediately, and which address the dangers in a specific place in a common-sense way, gun control advocates would rather focus on a political victory at some point in the future and continue to leave schools without proper security measures.

The general argument is that any effort at meaningful security is unacceptable because it turns schools into "fortresses."

Numerous examples of this line of reasoning can be found on Twitter. They are often remarkably similar in message which is "forget school security, just ban guns!"

Ah yes, the "ban guns" solution. It certainly worked in Latin America. And, of course, as soon as they're banned, everyone will immediately turn theirs in to the authorities and no one will have them anymore. Security of any sort will immediately and forever be rendered unnecessary. At least, this is how the thinking goes.


Butler County, Ohio, Sheriff Richard K. Jones offered free concealed carry training for 50 teachers and 250 teachers responded within 24 hours.

Breitbart News reported that Jones began advertising the free training on Sunday and the immediate response was 50 emails within 20 minutes:

Oxfam Loses Thousands of Donors Over Haiti Sexual Abuse Scandal Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 18:03:53 Id: 985df1 [Preview] No. 6738 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Oxfam’s leadership apologised Tuesday for downplaying the significance of a sexual misconduct scandal in Haiti and sought to stem the tide of cancelled donations.

Addressing British lawmakers, Oxfam Great Britain CEO Mark Goldring apologised early and often for a lack of transparency and urgency in handling the original allegations.

“I am sorry, we are sorry, for the damage Oxfam has done both to the people of Haiti but also to wider efforts for aid and development by possibly undermining public support,” he said.

The committee called the urgent session amid fury over Oxfam’s response to allegations that some of its staff in Haiti used prostitutes, including some who may have been minors. The scandal has shaken the aid group to the core, with the government suspending funding for the agency.

In addition, Oxfam said Tuesday that about 7,000 individual donors have cancelled regular donations in the past 10 days and some corporate sponsors are reserving judgment.

Seven Oxfam workers were fired or resigned after a whistleblower accused staff members of misconduct while working in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. Government officials and Britain’s charity regulator have said that Oxfam didn’t tell them the allegations included sexual misconduct until Britain’s Times newspaper revealed details of the case earlier this month.

Goldring said that with hindsight, the charity’s leaders made the wrong call at the time of their initial investigation about how much information to give to the public and government authorities. But he said he believed those decisions were made in the interest of continuing vital aid to desperate people.

British lawmakers also questioned officials from Save the Children UK amid concern sex predators are targeting aid organisations because of the chaotic environments in which they work.

CNN Gets Thrown Out of Russian Internet Research Agency Property After Caught Digging Through Their Garbage Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 17:16:38 Id: 309125 [Preview] No. 6737 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian nationals on Friday for (unsuccessfully) attempting to influence the 2016 presidential election, CNN sent one of its most intrepid reporters to the St. Petersburg "troll farm" uncovered by Mueller's ever-widening and totally legitimate investigation.

Chief International Correspondent Matthew Chance (had his cameraman) literally dig through the garbage outside of an office building which is home to the alleged Russian troll farm for clues.

“This is the office in which that atmosphere of chaos was stoked from the Russian side,” Chance told guest host Jim Sciutto. “That’s why 13 Russian individuals, including the financial benefactor, the person who bankrolls that organization, have now been indicted in the United States.”

“You looked through the trash there?” Sciutto asked. “What did you find?”

“Yes, we did,” Chance answered, sheepishly. “We came here expecting this office to be empty, but, in fact, all day here, we’ve been here throughout the course of the day, people have been going in and out.”

“We went to the trash can to see what we could find with old people dumping rubbish there. New computers are being delivered here and they are throwing it away with the rubbish.”

Later, Chance spoke with an actual Russian troll - who appears to be about 250 lbs underweight for his alleged profession, who blew smoke in his face. When the CNN crew attempted to then enter the "troll farm" they were promptly told to leave.

CNN goes to Russia so they can dig in the trash to try to find proof of Russian collusion.

Michael Moore Participated In Russia-Sponsored Anti-Trump Rally, Yet Ignored By Mainstream Press Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 17:02:27 Id: 6741a5 [Preview] No. 6736 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Progressive director Michael Moore participated in an anti-Trump protest in New York that was organized by Russians, according to information released Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein announced indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday against 13 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election, highlighting how the Russians used social media to stir up strife and anger on social media using memes and unwitting Americans to do their bidding. One Russia-sponsored event was a protest of then President-Elect Donald Trump on Nov. 12, 2016, called “Trump is NOT my President,” and it involved Moore.

On the day, Moore tweeted:

At today’s Trump Tower protest. He wouldn’t come down. Here’s my Facebook Live coverage: https://t.co/FzxOyljoK5pic.twitter.com/PxjoALcyn8

— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) November 13, 2016

On his Facebook page, Moore embedded a long video of him “reporting” from the Putin-organized event, calling Trump a “sociopath” and a “racist.”

Moore’s Facebook page is littered with charges that Trump and Republicans are Russian tools and enemies of the American people.

San Francisco Declared One Of World’s Filthiest Slums Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 16:58:29 Id: ddc48c [Preview] No. 6735 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
San Francisco has been declared one of the world’s filthiest slums, with conditions dirtier than slums found in third world nations such as Kenya or India.

According to an NBC investigation, great swathes of the city are covered in feces and needles, as hospitals overflow with patients that have fallen ill due to the contamination.

NBC reports: How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.

As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by on their way to an afternoon field trip to citiy hall.

“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” said teacher Adelita Orellana. “Sometimes they ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”

In light of the dangerous conditions, part of Orellana’s responsibilities now include teaching young children how to avoid the contamination.

‘There’s Poop in There’

“The floor is dirty,” said A’Nylah Reed, a 3-year-old student at the preschool, who irately explained having to navigate dirty conditions on her walks to school.

“There is poop in there,” she exclaimed. “That makes me angry.”

Its Official: New Gernations of America Are BROKE, We Are Heading Into Third World Territory Reader 02/20/2018 (Tue) 00:43:46 Id: 955bb6 [Preview] No. 6730 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

How long can our debt levels keep growing much, much faster than the overall economy?

We haven’t had a year of 3 percent growth for the U.S. economy since the middle of the Bush administration, but we keep borrowing money as if there is no tomorrow. Much of the focus has been on the exploding debt of the federal government, and that is definitely something I plan to address once I get to Washington. But on an individual level, U.S. consumers have been extremely irresponsible as well. In fact, one new survey has found that more than 80 percent of all American adults are currently in debt…

It’s no secret that America is a nation that runs on debt, but it may surprise you to learn that the overwhelming majority of U.S. adults owe money in some way, shape, or form. According to new data from Comet, here’s how many Americans have debt at present:

80.9% of Baby Boomers
79.9% of Gen Xers
81.5% of Millennials

For most of us, it starts very early. We were told that going into debt to get a college education would not be a problem because we would be able to pay those loans off with the good jobs we would get after graduation.

Unfortunately, those good jobs never really materialized for many of us (thanks to the outsourcing of jobs), and now millions of former college students are absolutely drowning in debt…

A study released Friday by the Brookings Institution finds that most borrowers who left school owing at least $50,000 in student loans in 2010 had failed to pay down any of their debt four years later. Instead, their balances had on average risen by 5% as interest accrued on their debt.

Uneducated work? I tried that some time ago. It didn't pan out. You would spend the rest of your life struggling under shit wages for a barking mad dog who desperately needs to be put down. Especially after Obamacare, where no matter what Trump does, the damage has already been done. No shit wage jobs offer full time anymore. You'd have to hold down three to make up for what we used to have.

What everyone needs to do (will have to, provided with this fucked up economy) is first start with holding two to three jobs and struggling through them, as not a single one of them will be cooperative about scheduling. Do not be afraid to walk out when the situation's impossible. There will be bullying by bosses with extreme power complexes. What you need to remember is, they will claim YOU are a dime a dozen but on the same coin, THEIR type of shit work is as well.

Then after thousands have been saved, put yourself through college or University without relying on student loans. The prerequisites will be a pain in the ass. Many useless courses that absolutely fuck-all to do with your major. Also, do not be afraid to walk out of a course if the professor's an incompetent jackass or impossible piece of shit. Do so early to retrieve your refund, immediately.

Then you MUST intern in your field. This is where you make sure you've saved up enough to survive off of, because you will likely not have time for a second job. Expect long hours for no compensation whatsoever.

Loose term internships last a year, depending on your learning capability. After that, you test for your field's license. You then stay on and continue to save money while working the same exhausting shifts (often doubles) until you obtain the education (Master's) to either become a specialist in house or open your own office.

Seeking an art or sociology degree is the dumbest choice. Otherwise, the worthwhile degrees are for pre-med courses: various ones on biology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics engineering nuclear, circuit design, chemical, fuels, plastics, optical, photonics, marine equipment, electrical etc. marketing, piloting, financial management, even psychology (sham) and law degrees. Unless you're brainy enough to become a scientist.

>put yourself through college or University without relying on student loans

IF you can afford to do that, its an option. But please be cautious: MOST degrees will get you nowhere today but flipping burgers or working on a loading dock anyway! The problem is most of the decent-paying jobs have been outsourced over the last 30+ years and of-course Obamacare made things a lot worse like you said.

Even IF you get a good computer programming / electronic engineering degree and decide to work at Silicon Valley, the housing and renting prices are ridiculously HIGH! So guess what? You'd be living in a fucking RV or trailer park anyway regardless of salary. You'd still be right back where you left off.

My recommendation would be to live frugally, don't waste your money, stay away from debt and take two part time jobs if you have to. Make sure you live somewhere where taxes are lower, hell, I read that some small towns are now offering tax deduction incentives for people who are willing to move there because of lack of workers and declining local populations. Don't be afraid to find a job in a small town and take those incentives if offered. If you save up enough money, consider farming. You will be your own boss (for the most part) and can sell your crops and make a living that way out in the country. Sure, its a lot of hard work but there is something to be said about family-based living and independence.

Also, what we really need is more trade schools coming back. Back in the good 'ol Americana days we had plenty of CHEAP trade schools where students could learn actual skills like plumbing, mechanical repair, electrical maintenance, chemistry, butchery, social techniques for salesmen, farming, ranching, etc. And guess what? Not only were trade schools cheap, but you could have 100% control over what skill(s) you want to learn. And the trade schools would even help you find a job in those days!

Many people have been killed for exposing crimes, this is pretty obvious. How long is the 'Clinton body bag' tally so far? 55? 56? Something ridiculous like that.

How many holistic doctors killed by Big Pharma mercenaries so far? At least 80 if I recall.

Remember that documentary in the works that was going to expose Obama for expanding the police state 100-fold? "Grey State" or something? Yah, the film maker and his whole family ended up brutally murdered before the film was finished.

The bankers who were going to whistleblow about the big banks rigging the metals markets? Some of them shot in the back of the head twice, some of them shot dozens of times in the head with nail guns and some thrown out of multi-story windows! ... but I'm sure its all "suicides", nothing to see here!

STRANGE: Mueller Indictments Based On A Russian Publication About A Russian Internet Research Agency? Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 20:31:38 Id: 06effd [Preview] No. 6705 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A 37-page indictment issued by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team on Friday brings fresh American attention to one of the strangest elements of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election: The Internet Research Agency (IRA), an alledged state-sponsored “troll factory” in St. Petersburg.

But much of the information Mueller published on Friday about the agency’s efforts to influence the election had already been published last October — in an article by a Russian business magazine, RBC.

In a 4,500-word report titled “How the 'troll factory' worked the U.S. elections,” journalists Polina Rusyaeva and Andrey Zakharov offered the fullest picture yet of how the “American department” of the IRA used Facebook, Twitter and other tactics to inflame tensions ahead of the 2016 vote. The article also looked at the staffing structure of the organization and revealed details about its budget and salaries.


Zakharov agreed to answer some questions for WorldViews about his reaction to the details about the IRA in Mueller’s indictments (Rusyaeva left journalism after the story came out, although she stresses she did not do so because of a reaction to the story). Zakharov explained how it was a strange feeling seeing something he had so closely investigated become a major issue in the United States, when it had not been a “bombshell” when he published his report at home.

The transcript below has been edited for length and clarity.

So half of these guys didn't even work at the agency during the year of the recent election, only had past experience working in the agency? Yah, strange! Seems like Team Mueller is trying to pin the blame on any Russians they feasibly can. Thats an act of desperation, not an investigation.

Its pretty clear, the election was rigged for Hillary but Trump unexpectedly got elected instead, so they are trying to cover-up their failures, censor and demonize their political foes, set up scapegoats and censor social media organizations for the unexpected election outcome. And not only do they blame Trump for bogus "collusion", they are saying Bernie and his bros were in on the whole thing too. Nuts! Complete and utter nutjobs. No wonder our government fails at everything, they are run by politically bias clowns.
