  • Bots really do post on this board, particularly from China (they don't even bother to change their IP). Please report suspect posts that encourage odd behaviour. These posts tell to encourage users to not trust their government and to disengage with them.
  • All OPs of thread should include a link to the source of the news. The source should be a reputable and verifiable news outlet.
  • Avoid creating "general threads". New news posted in general threads can and will get lost/go unseen in a "general" thread. New threads keep the information fresh and the conversation moving forward instead of rehashing the information in the OP over and over.

We are now encouraging the use of Usernames and/or Tripcodes as a response to the Chinabots

There's no finessing this: The board is being constantly assaulted by "Chinabots"; automated posts coming from Chinese IP addresses. These posts are often completely unrelated to the thread's topic and all push for the same thing: Chaos in America. They keep pushing users to feel like America is falling apart at the seams and that you the users yourselves should contribute by rebelling or something.

Now as the Corona-virus breaks out across the world, these posts are an increasing problem as they're an even bigger hindrance in this crisis. People are mistaking fake China posts for real ones, while accusing other real posts of being Chinabots.

In the midst of this. we've noticed these Chinabot posts never seem to use usernames, and certainly not tripcodes. And therein may lay a way to combat these Chinabots.

We would like to now encourage everyone who posts on /n/ to use some kind of user name and/or a tripcode in order to identify yourselves as "real" users, as opposed to fake Chinabot users. Your name can be anything, so long as it isn't in the format of the current RNG name generator which gives everyone a "Firstname Lastname" style name. Your username doesn't have to be too specific, something like "Anonymous One", "Anonymous Two", "Friendly Neighbour Anonymous" etc if you still want to keep things vague.

This isn't a complete solution to the problem but we think it would be a big hand in helping things along. At a bare minimum, it'll help the regulars here spot the other regulars and give everyone a better spot at noticing who the Chinabots are. So if you could co-operate with this plan, we'd really appreciate it and think it'll be a big help.

So suggest some shit. not all of it even has to be things you'd choose. I can think of a few but I'm not digging you out here. The US has a particularly large amount low hanging fruit as far as increasing the standard of living for the poorest goes without directly giving them money. Places like Sweden and Norway plucked them long ago but also have a much higher standard of living for the people who aren't super rich.

Lame trolling dude. I guess this is the part where you want me to say you're just mad because I make more money than you and then you go on about how in shallow. Idk your game is boring

Expanding section 8, lower requirements for food stamps/wic, subsidized vocational training programs, expansion of Medicare, increased regulation on corporations, the closing of tax loopholes and increasing expenditures on infrastructure investment. Pretty much anything that adds value or provides services instead of sliding the numbers over is a better idea.

>Countries’ leaders should speed up action to shift people’s diets towards more plant-based foods to reduce the risks of future pandemics breaking out, according to a new report by campaigners.

>Global intensive animal farming, in which thousands of animals are kept in close proximity, causing high stress levels, is the perfect breeding ground for more novel viruses to emerge, says the white paper by Humane Society International.

>The document identifies five key “pandemic risks” created by factory farming that it says create a “petri dish” for pathogens to erupt, mutate and spread:
  • confining vast numbers of stressed animals indoors creates novel viral strains because their immune systems are weakened so they succumb to viruses easily
  • expanding farms into previously wild areas brings wild and domestic species together, allowing diseases to jump
  • concentrating animal farms in an area increases the risk of pathogens spreading
  • the global live animal trade, in which huge numbers of live animals are transported globally, allows viruses to travel
  • agricultural fairs and auctions and live animal markets where the public get close to species from different places, let viruses proliferate.

>UN experts have previously said that industrial animal farming has caused most new infectious diseases in humans in the past decade – and risks starting new pandemics.

>In addition, some of the world’s leading scientists , from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), have warned that future pandemics are likely to be more frequent, spread more rapidly and kill more people if humanity fails to transform how it is damaging the environment and exploiting wildlife.

>Outbreaks of dangerous new diseases with the potential to become pandemics are on the rise, having become four times as frequent in the past half-century.

>A survey has found that almost half of Britons who eat meat feel hypocritical for loving animals while eating others.

>When asked how strongly they agree with the statement “it’s hypocritical that we eat some animals, such as pigs, while loving others, such as dogs, and keeping them as pets”, 47.8 per cent of respondents either slightly or strongly agreed.

Sex banned indoors, "dogging" trends in UK
>Couples living apart in areas with Tier 2 restrictions are not allowed to have sleepovers unless they are in a “support bubble”, Downing Street confirmed today.

>The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told a briefing of Westminster journalists: “The rules on household mixing in Tier 2 set out that you should mix with your own household only unless you’ve formed a support bubble and that obviously does apply to some couples.”

>Asked why there was no exemption for people in established relationships in Tier 2, he replied: “Because the purpose of the measures that were put in place is to break the chain in transmission between households and the scientific advice is there is greater transmission of the virus indoors.”

>Asked if couples in Tier 2 can meet outside, he said: “Yes, as it was set out in the guidance that was published this week the ban on household mixing is in relation to indoors and outdoors the rule of six applies.”

>In a secret ballot at the United Nations yesterday, Saudi Arabia was rejected for a position on the body’s 47-country Human Rights Council (HRC). The only country that did not receive the required number of votes from member states, the failure has been seen as a repudiation of the Kingdom’s abysmal human rights record and its decreasing international support.

>Saudi Arabia’s allies in the West had actually been campaigning to halt the election of states that draw Washington’s ire, including China, Djibouti, and Cuba, trying to organize opposition against those nations, but were ultimately unsuccessful. China received 41 fewer votes than it did in 2016, amid increased global concern over the alleged treatment of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province, but ultimately comfortably surpassed the 50 percent threshold for admission.

>The reaction from the U.S. government, which left the HRC in 2018 over its perceived bias against Israel, was similarly angry. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement claiming that the election of countries like China, Djibouti, Cuba (and Venezuela in 2019) has shown that the institution is now broken beyond repair.

>Much of the media today has been in a furor that the “world’s worst abusers” (The Times) like China, Djibouti, and Cuba are set to join or rejoin the council. The Guardian suggested that the institution’s credibility is at stake. Yet in the talk of human rights violators joining the council, the election of other states with questionable records was never discussed. Bolivia, whose murderous far-right government came to power in a U.S.-backed military coup in November, was also elected, but with no fanfare or condemnation. As was Cameroon, whose dictatorial head of state Paul Biya has been in charge of the country since Gerald Ford was president of the United States. Other states with contentious records included were Narendra Modi’s India, Rodrigo Duterte’s Philippines, and the Qatari dictatorship.

>Saudi Arabia was elected twice to the HRC between 2014-2016 and 2017-2019. Its new failure to secure more than 90 votes is a sign of increasing discontent with its policies in Yemen, declared the world’s worst humanitarian disaster by the United Nations, where 24 million people (80 percent of the country) need some form of humanitarian assistance. Yet under pressure from the U.S. government, aid has been cut to just 25 cents per person, per day. The kingdom has played a key role in stymying any international action to deal with the humanitarian catastrophe, using its position at the HRC to block UN inquiries into its own abuses in Yemen.

>Internally, the country is often described as the most repressive regime on the planet, with millions of people suffering under slave-like conditions, according to Human Rights Watch. While on the council, it attempted to block a resolution that condemned the use of torture by law enforcement and reaffirms the human rights of LGBT people. Inside Saudi Arabia, homosexuality is still punishable with the death penalty.

>Ultimately, while yesterday’s election is the sign of a slightly more multipolar world, the results are unlikely to seriously change the direction of the organization, with the United Nations constantly blocked from taking action unless all of the world’s superpowers allow it.

So where are their documented ties to WS/WN or dominionist groups? Where is the evidence that links them to a broader ethnoreligious movement?

Then maybe there should be a media inquiry into the churches they attended and the messages being preached, just like every other institution connected with violent radicals. Again, with WS/WN types we usually build a pretty clear profile of how they were radicalized, ditto with religious militants. That such a profile doesn't exist here suggests to me that these guys were not ethnically or religiously motivated.

I understand your logic but I disagree because the clandestine nature of these weapons are their appeal. I think that if people knew about them they would demand regulation and possible all out bans. The ability to do harm to others with little to no attribution is also the appeal. If someone was targeting you for some reason and you told them you were being hurt with microwave weapons they would just say you're crazy and you could possibly have a nice 72hour stay somewhere. If advertisement for these products took place in an open market the knowledge of their use would lessen their appeal.

Where are advertisements for illegal drugs, sex slaves, assassinations, extortion/black mail, chemical weapons? This list goes on. The black market is an economy of it's own. Really silly where are the advertisements for South American coups?

Hardly any of the terrorist attacks in Europe are done by migrants, they are mostly second or third generation citizens, which shows the complete failing of the state to integrate certain minorities. Most ISIS fighters are second/third generation citizens as well btw .

I'm not saying Islam isn't shit, but this isn't an immigration problem nor an Islamic one, it is an issue of the government completely abandoning their marginalized citizens.

>A bipartisan bill introduced in the House of Representatives would enhance protections for Israel’s qualitative military edge to include an effective Israeli veto on US arms sales to the Middle East.

The release came from the office of the bill’s lead sponsor, Illinois Democrat Rep. Brad Schneider.
