Main news poster here: Over the next few days I'm going on a trip to see some relatives so I'll be gone and won't be able to post any news for a while. Just want the BO and other readers to know that, maybe you guys can keep this board alive and going by posting some news.

I would also highly appreciate seeing an update on the Brazil election when I get back here. That election will be on the 28th, and I won't be here to report that. I'll post some news updates today (the ones I couldn't post because endchan was under DDoS attack) and tomorrow I'm gone.

I would also appreciate very much if someone were to keep tabs on the invasion situation at the border. If the US govt/military stands down, let us know about their treason. Unfortunately I likely won't be here to report it.

NOTE for BO (and fellow readers): main news poster here, my daughter's family is coming to visit tomorrow and they'll be staying over for a week.

INVASION INCOMING PART 4: Anti-American Communist Judge In San Francisco Blocks Trump's Asylum Crackdown Reader 11/20/2018 (Tue) 17:32:50 Id: d319b7 [Preview] No. 13269 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

As was widely expected, a federal judge in San Francisco (the same court that stymied the administration's travel ban) has temporarily blocked the Trump Administration's executive order that would have temporarily restricted invaders' ability to claim asylum anywhere other than a designated border checkpoint.

According to Buzzfeed, Judge Jon Tigar ruled Monday that the administration’s decision "irreconcilably conflicts with" the Immigration and Nationality Act, which stipulates that anyone entering the US can apply for asylum regardless of where they entered. Trump's order demanded that, for the time being, invaders present themselves as a border checkpoint for "orderly processing". Anybody who didn't comply would be denied entry at other points along the border, according to CNN. The order directed administration officials to determine within 90 days whether the order should be made permanent.

"Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden," said Tigar in a ruling that blocked the policy for one month.

Tigar’s ruling comes just 12 hours after he heard arguments from the American Civil Liberties Union, which requested the order, and the Department of Justice, which maintained that the policy was necessary because a crush of asylum-seekers on the southern border had created a crisis. Tigar, who was appointed by former president Barack Obama, explained in his ruling that asylum-seekers would be at an “increased risk of violence and other harms at the border, and many will be deprived of meritorious asylum claims.”

The parties involved the challenge (which includes civil rights groups like the ACLU, which sued to block the order) will meet again in San Francisco on Dec. 19 as the judge weighs whether to make his block of the injunction permanent. Trump said he was restricting asylum to protect the US from caravans of migrants heading toward the southern border from Central America. But already, some of the troops Trump sent to the border to help reinforce the border patrol are beginning to head home.

It is clear there are enemies within America doing everything they can to destabilize the United States of America, and are trying to aid and assist foreign invasion. The traitors should be stripped from power and subjected to military tribunals for sedition and treason. That is all.

France Riots Over New Carbon Tax Forced By Rothchild Puppet Macron Reader 11/20/2018 (Tue) 14:43:52 Id: 1c88e8 [Preview] No. 13267 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In stunning irony, the French protest against Macron's diesel tax, while Macron insists the UK abide by climate accord.

On Saturday, more than 282,700 people, many clad in yellow vests, took to — and, in many places, also literally took — the streets, according to the French Interior Ministry. The ministry said a network of drivers blocked roads at some 2,000 locations across the country, generating backups for miles and causing one death.

The protesters’ chief complaint: the rising cost of diesel fuel. The recent price hike is a direct result of President Emmanuel Macron’s commitment to curbing climate change, which included higher carbon taxes for 2018, the first full year of his term. But beyond the diesel issue, many turned out Saturday to voice any number of other frustrations with the “president for the rich,” who is seen as increasingly removed from ordinary people’s concerns.

The stirrings of the “yellow vest” campaign behind Saturday’s protests began this summer, with online petitions urging Macron to reconsider. But the loudest voice was that of Jacline Mouraud, a white-haired hypnotist and grandmother of three from Brittany who has become the star of the movement.

On Saturday, Mouraud was asked to explain the death of the protester. “I deplore the death of this woman,” she said, speaking to Europe 1 radio. “But who is responsible for this situation? The French government is responsible for the death of this woman.”

According to a poll published Friday by the Odoxa agency for France’s Le Figaro newspaper — albeit with only 1,000 respondents — as many as 3 in 4 French people agree.

The French government approved a measure in late 2017 increasing a direct tax on diesel as well as a tax on carbon, allegedly to fight against climate change. The so-called Contribution Climat Énergie (CCE), a French version of the carbon tax, has steadily increased fuel prices in recent years. Drivers across the country have balked at the rising price of diesel as it disproportionately affects workers who depend on their vehicles to get to and from their jobs. Two-thirds of French people expect a “social explosion” in coming months.

Global Stocks Plunge With Tech Shares In Freefall Reader 11/20/2018 (Tue) 14:41:51 Id: 4e99f1 [Preview] No. 13265 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

While there was some nuance in yesterday's pre-open trading, with Asia at least putting up a valiant defense to what would soon become another US rout, this morning the market theme is far simpler: a global sea of red.

Stocks fell across the globe as worries over softening demand for the iPhone prompted a tech stock selloff across the world, while the arrest of car boss Carlos Ghosn pulled Nissan and Renault sharply lower. Even China's recent rally fizzled and the Shanghai composite closed down 2.1% near session lows, signalling that the global slump led by tech shares would deepen Tuesday, adding a new layer of pessimism to markets already anxious over trade. Treasuries advanced and the dollar edged higher.

S&P 500 futures traded near session lows, down 0.6% and tracking a fall in European and Asian shares after renewed weakness in the tech sector pushed Nasdaq futures sharply lower for a second day after Monday's 3% plunge and crippled any hopes for dip buying. News around Apple triggered the latest bout of stock market selling, after the Wall Street Journal reported the consumer tech giant is cutting production for its new iPhones.

Europe's Stoxx 600 Index dropped a fifth day as its technology sector fell 1.3% to the lowest level since February 2017, taking the decline from mid-June peak to 21% and entering a bear market. Not surprisingly, the tech sector was the worst performer on the European benchmark on Tuesday, following Apple’s decline to near bear-market territory and U.S. tech stocks plunge during recent sell-off. The selloff was compounded by an auto sector drop led by Nissan and Renault after Ghosn, chairman of both carmakers, was arrested in Japan for alleged financial misconduct. The European auto sector was not far behind, dropping 1.6 percent, and the broad European STOXX 600 index was down 0.9 percent to a four-week low.

“Most of Europe had a red session yesterday and that has been compounded by the news on Apple and tech stocks overnight, The overall climate is risk off,” said Investec economist Philip Shaw. “Beyond stocks, the Italian bonds spread (over German bonds) is at its widest in about a month now, and Brexit continues to rumble on - uncertainty is very much hurting risk sentiment,” he added.

Earlier, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 1.2 percent, with Samsung Electronics falling 2 percent. In Japan, Sony Corp shed 3.1 percent. Japan’s Nikkei slipped 1.1 percent, with shares of Nissan Motor Co tumbling more than 5% after Ghosn’s arrest and on news he will be fired from the board this week.

Meanwhile, as noted yesterday, the CDS index of US investment grade issuers blew out to the widest level since the Trump election, signaling renewed nerves about the asset class.

Commiefornia Democrat Calls For Mass Arrests of American Gun Owners, Nuking Communities That Resist Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 14:53:48 Id: 492a2e [Preview] No. 13255 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just days after taking back the House, a Democratic Congressmen has proposed outlawing "military-style semi-automatic assault weapons" and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.

In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

THIS IS NO JOKE: https://archive.fo/0H7EA

Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons - and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”

As NBC News reports, this is a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms; as in the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as 'gun confiscation', a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.

And sure enough Swalwell's egotistical over-reach - going full "Australia" - prompted anger across social media. But it was one particular thread that caught our eye...

John Cardillo, 'America Talks Live' host on Newsmax, tweeted in response: "Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state. These people are dangerously obsessed with power."

Swalwell just put all the nails in his political coffin with that single statement right there.

Pictures related is why the government will never pull off a large scale attack on its own people. The moment they do that America is over and so is their power system.

Northbound commuters from Mexico trying to pass through the busiest land border crossing in the United States found themselves stuck in line for hours after US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials halted traffic in order to reinforce the border amid an arriving Central American migrant caravan, reports Fox5 San Diego. The San Ysidro Port of Entry could be seen blocked off at approximately 3:30 a.m.

"[We] have temporarily suspended vehicle processing for northbound travelers at the San Ysidro port of entry Monday morning to position additional port hardening materials," said border officials. "After the materials are in position, CBP will resume processing northbound vehicle traffic in select lanes at the border crossing."

I saw a video from grindall on Bitchute the other day covering the razor wire being put up in Commiefornia, they are putting up razor wiring around all the existing fences and then adding traditional fences around the other areas. Looks like at least they're doing something and not just letting them cross over. Some rumors they're hiding out in Mexico and waiting to follow future orders from Soros NGOs.

Funny thing is: THE MEXICANS DON'T LIKE THEM EITHER! There have already been brawls break out between migrant invaders and Mexican citizens.

Corruption: Trump HHS Official Found Murdered, Ruled 'Suicide' By Multiple Blunt Force Injuries Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 18:27:24 Id: 4dee1a [Preview] No. 13259 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Daniel Best, a pharmaceutical executive who recently began working for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services tasked with the goal of “lowering prescription drug prices” in the United States, was found dead with “multiple blunt force injuries” on November 1.

Now, his death has been ruled a “suicide.”


According to Washington, D.C. police, Best was found “unresponsive” near the garage door exit of an apartment building in D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1, and was pronounced dead by medical personnel who responded to the scene.

After investigating for two weeks, the city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has announced that Best died from “multiple blunt force injuries“ and ruled his death a suicide.

The Chief Medical Examiner’s verdict raised questions among the health community, with many people refusing to believe Best killed himself by repeatedly hitting himself with a blunt object until he died.

“How does one kill themselves by hitting themselves with a blunt object? Repeatedly?”

Unfortunately, the medical examiner wouldn’t release further information.

H.R.6747 is a Republican-backed anti-gun bill that would put a so-called "safety grant" program in place, effectively providing funding to states for the implementation of GVRO/ERPO programs.

GVROs/ERPOs result in confiscation of firearms without due process, and this bill would encourage ALL states to adopt such programs at the expense of taxpayers like yourself.

This dangerous, anti-gun bill MUST be stopped, so we need your help.

Foreigners Dump US Treasuries As They Liquidate A Record Amount Of US Stocks Reader 11/19/2018 (Mon) 14:53:04 Id: 9594b5 [Preview] No. 13254 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/elYwR

Earlier this week, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach held his latest webcast with investors in which he warned that as a result of rising hedging costs, US Treasury bonds have become increasingly unattractive to foreign buyers. This can be seen in the chart below which shows the yield on the 10Y US TSY unhedged, and also hedged into Yen and Euros. In the latter two cases, the yield went from over 3%, to negative as a result of the gaping rate differential between the Fed and ECB or BOJ.

This is also why, as the next chart from Gundlach showed, foreign holdings of US Treasurys have been declining in recent years, and dropped to just over 36% as a percentage of total holdings, the lowest in over a decade, as domestic holdings of US paper have risen to just shy of 50%, and near all time highs.

Which brings us to today's latest monthly TIC data which showed that, as Gundlach would expect, the holdings of the two largest foreign US creditors, China and Japan, declined to multi year low.

As shown in the chart below, China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to the lowest level since mid-2017 as the world’s second-largest economy sold US reserves to stabilize the yuan which has been depreciating in recent months due to the ongoing trade war.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries declined for a fourth month to $1.151 trillion in September, from $1.165 trillion in August, a $14 billion decline. Despite the drop, China remained the biggest foreign creditor to the U.S., followed by Japan whose Treasury holdings also dropped by $2 billion to $1.028 trillion, the lowest since 2011.

Investors have been searching for clues whether China is dumping its vast holding of U.S. Treasuries to retaliate against U.S. tariffs, though Beijing has given no indication it’s doing so; meanwhile while the TIC data is relatively accurate, it tends to be revised rather materially which is why it is certainly possible that China's real holdings, when adjusted for valuation and currency changes, are far lower.

Of course, instead of selling Treasurys, China may have decided to hold on to its reserves and allow the yuan to depreciate against the USD, but not too much: so far 7.00 has emerged as a "red line" for the PBOC. The Chinese currency has already depreciated more than 4 percent against the dollar in the past year amid signs of an economic slowdown and capital outflows. In September, China’s foreign-exchange reserves stockpile fell by $22 billion to touch the lowest level since July 2017, however much of that number was due to valuation adjustments.

Going down the list, while Russia's Treasury liquidation was well documented in June and July, two new aggressive sellers of US paper emerged in the latest data: France, whose Treasury holdings declined from $118.4BN to $97.7BN...

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is now lobbying FOR upload filters Reader 11/18/2018 (Sun) 22:31:19 [Preview] No. 13251 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In a week which began with warnings from YouTube about the potential negative effects of the EU's Article 13 proposals, an interesting development is being reported by Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party. The vice chair of the Greens/EFA group reports that YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has visited Strasbourg and now appears to be lobbying in favor of upload filters.

As the heated debate over the EU’s controversial Article 13 proposals continues, YouTube is becoming ever more vocal.

Relatively silent in the run-up to the September vote which saw the European Parliament vote in favor of proposals put forward by Axel Voss’ EPP group, YouTube now seems very concerned over the possibility of being held liable for infringing content uploaded to its platform.

“While we support the goals of article 13, the European Parliament’s current proposal will create unintended consequences that will have a profound impact on the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people,” Wojcicki wrote in blog post earlier this week.

Wojcicki’s statement carried a stark warning that liability for YouTube under Article 13 could force the platform to block content from EU citizens. No company could take on such a financial risk, she said.

Thus far, the Article 13 debate has been polarized, with the entertainment industries hugely in favor and companies like YouTube and pro-Internet freedom groups strongly against. Now, however, a new development has created an interesting split in the ranks, with Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party, warning that YouTube is now lobbying in favor of upload filters.

As detailed in a release from Reda’s office this morning, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has made a number of statements in recent weeks that indicate that the video hosting platform is in favor of pre-filtering content before it’s made available to the public.

Of course, Google has its ContentID filtering system already in place, meaning that it would be in pole position to further dominate the video hosting space, if the filtering option is adopted by the EU.
