The US media doesn't want to talk about it, but Honduras is in the midst of having its election stolen again and the people are pissed. Eight years after the US-funded coup installed a brutally violent puppet state in the impoverished Central American state, hopes that things could turn around are once again being dashed by American electoral interference:
>American ally and incumbent Juan Orlando Hernández was declared the winner Sunday, instantly prompting allegations of election fraud and international concern over the country’s democratic process. Honduras, already plagued with civil unrest in the weeks following the election, is now embroiled in violent protests in which more than 20 people have died.
>Supporters of Hernández’s opponent, Salvador Nasralla, are clearly discouraged by the election process and outcome, and are calling on Honduras to hold a new round of elections. Nasralla himself alleges election fraud, labeling Hernández an “impostor” and warning that Honduras is at risk of a civil war if the election is not redone. The Organization of American States, a prominent global organization, has also expressed concern over the election process and called for a new election.

Israel extends detention of teenage girl for slapping soldier in viral video by William Foblingchud - Fri, 29 Dec 2017 09:11:47 EST ID:fuWNDovJ No.164482 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Israel has extended for the third time the ongoing detention of perhaps the most dangerous existential threat they've ever faced... a 16-year old girl:
>A military court on Thursday extended the detention until Monday of Ahed Tamimi, the 16-year-old Palestinian girl who was recently filmed slapping and punching Israeli soldiers in her West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. The detention of Ahed’s mother, Nariman, was also extended until Monday. The pair have been held since December 19.

The video of a young girl slapping a heavily-armed occupying soldier had already gone viral online, and her subsequent arrest - intended to placate butthurt right-wing Israelis - has only brought more international press and attention to her situation:
> The outrage was stoked by Israelis, who claimed that the confrontation with the soldiers had been staged to generate sympathy and made no mention of the fact that the incident took place after an Israeli soldier shot Ahed’s 15-year-old cousin in the head with a rubber-coated metal bullet during a demonstration against the ongoing military occupation. The girl’s father, Bassem, told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that his daughter, who will be 17 in January, was angry because her cousin Mohammed had been shot, and it was unclear at the time if he would survive. (Over the weekend, doctors removed the bullet from the boy’s skull and he was placed in a medically induced coma.)

In trying to silence her, the Israeli government has turned a marginalized young girl into an international symbol of anti-colonial resistance, bringing more unwanted attention to their ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing. Good job, dummies.

>China announced Tuesday it was ready to help reconstruction efforts in Syria, Chinese Special Envoy for Syria Xie Xiaoyan told reporters, now that Syria has been victorious over the Islamic State group.

The diplomat explained there is a need to eliminate the threat of terrorism there, otherwise, it could spread.

>“Although the Islamic State terror group has been defeated is Syria, its remaining members, as well as other terrorist groups, such as Jabhat al-Nusra and the East Turkestan independence movement, still exist, so the war on terror is far from being over,” the Chinese envoy said.

Pretty much, they tempt whatever government officials with prestigious projects and promises of improving the economy. They play into the naïveté and general lack of business acumen of many Africans to make them sign terrible contracts that only benefit the Chinese.

The Chinese proceed to strip the land of natural resources and send those back to China. The Africans are left with nothing but some improved infrastructure or whatever it is that the Chinese needed on site but couldn't bring back with them.

>Green groups reacted with alarm on Friday to a leaked Trump administration infrastructure draft that proposes a drastic rollback of environmental regulations in an attempt to expedite the construction of water-threatening oil pipelines, roads, bridges—and, of course, "the wall."

>The draft also includes a provision that would "expand the government's ability to have private firms pay for the federal environmental reviews of their own projects" while also restricting the ability of federal agencies to "weigh in or block a project from going forward," the Washington Post, which first obtained the leaked proposal, reports.

>While the proposal obtained by the Post is not yet fully formed, it provides a glimpse into how the Trump administration plans to proceed with what has been described as one of the president's top legislative priorities.

I hate this logic. Jobs jobs jobs. Back in the day the working class would strike, reclaim and engage in mass revolt. Now in America, they look onward at the rest of the world doing so and think "lazy southern Europeans. Stop rioting! This austerity will help us..build an economy we have little to no vested interest in..so we can return to work for all time low wages worldwide as the economy hits record profits". The Barr's really fucking low isn't it? People would rather have temporary security than admit that the system in crisis is more desirable because the strength of capitalism only does one thing: extends the hell on earth it maintains. But oh no it's fine that the earth is taking some of its final breaths, and wealth gaps are reaching a peak. See the pattern? It's almost like the earth is being bled dry, and a select few are profiting from this. How else could we hit these record profits when most of us see dropping wages?

>The route to equipping the NYPD with body cameras ran through a federal courtroom. As part of the remedies handed down in a civil rights lawsuit against the NYPD's stop-and-frisk program, body cameras became required equipment for officers.

>NYPD officials seemed to support the plan. Not so the ostensible representative of the NYPD, the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association (PBA). The NYPD's union fought the cameras much as they have fought anything with a hint of accountability. A report by the NYPD's internal oversight found officers much less concerned about body cameras and access to footage than their supposed union reps.

>A long-delayed camera policy finally rolled out, making it clear cameras would serve officers and prosecutors much more than they would the general public. Now, the PBA is going to court to block the release of camera footage to the public. The PBA hopes the court will read public records laws the way it does, tossing body cam footage into the gaping hole of New York public records exemptions.

Tech companies are using this opportunity to step up their efforts to bury independent, non-corporate and non-establishment news from the public view:
>Facebook’s recent company announcement should scare anyone who values independent and non-profit media.

>In response to mounting criticism over its role in spreading “fake news”, as well as research showing that social media has been making people less happy, Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that the company is overhauling its news feed algorithms to de-emphasize “passive content” from brands and publishers and promote “meaningful interaction” with friends and family instead. Facebook says it wants its users to feel positive after using its service, and will display content accordingly. So more pictures of adorable dogs, fewer links to news sites.

>Similar changes by other tech companies have also financially damaged small content providers. Last year, when YouTube adjusted its algorithms, ostensibly to combat hate speech, a progressive political commentary show suddenly saw its revenue plummet and had to launch a crowdfunding campaign to survive. Changes made by Google News may have caused some sites to experience drops in traffic as high as 70%.

The media's been largely ignoring this, but Congressional Democrat leaders, including #resistance leaders like Nancy Pelosi, just voted to increase Donald Trump's vast unaccountable warrantless spying apparatus. Aside from the usual concerns of maintaining this hugely expensive unconstitutional panopticon, this raises the question of just how sincere the political and media establishment is in their big theatrical #resistance of the Trump presidency:
>As the American Civil Liberties Union put it bluntly about the bill supported by Pelosi and Schiff: “The House just passed a bill to give the Trump administration greater authority to spy on Americans, immigrants, journalists, dissidents, and everyone else.” The privacy group Electronic Frontier Foundation echoed that sentiment: “The House just approved the disastrous NSA surveillance extension bill that will allow for continued, unconstitutional surveillance that hurts the American people and violates our Fourth Amendment rights.”
>But the most important point here is what this says about how Democrats really view Donald Trump. How can anyone rational possibly take seriously all the righteous denunciations from people like Pelosi, Schiff, and Swalwell about how Trump is a lawless, authoritarian tyrant existentially threatening American democracy when those very same people just yesterday voted in favor of vesting him the virtually limitless power to spy on Americans with no warrants or safeguards? If someone really believed those accusations about Trump — as opposed to just pretending to believe them for cynical political manipulation of their followers — how could they possibly have done what they did yesterday?

As the fight over Roy Moore and the soul (lol) of the Republican party continues, the alt-right wing of the party has turned its sights on an old favorite: the Mormons. After Romney essentially called Moore a "stain" on the party, froglord Steve Bannon lashed out at Romney with a direct attack on his faith:
>“By the way, Mitt, while we’re on the subject of honor and integrity, you avoided service, brother,” Bannon said, according to The Washington Post. “Mitt, here’s how it is, brother: The college deferments, we can debate that — but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam.”

This had the predictable result of pissing off pretty much everyone in Utah, including Hatch:
>“I also resent anyone attacking any person’s religious views, but particularly our own Christian LDS faith and the selfless service of missionary work,” Hatch continued. “I’d be more than happy to sit down with Mr. Bannon and help him understand more about the LDS Church at his convenience. I’ve got a copy of the Book of Mormon with his name on it.”

This will likely only widen the rift growing within the party as the ascendant shithead redneck wing of the party continues to antagonise alienate everyone else within both the party and the country as a whole:
>While Bannon’s statements may turn off or irritate those in the West’s Mormon Belt, it could play well in the deep South, including Alabama, where a key constituency of evangelicals see the LDS faith as heretical. And it could be a concerted effort to drive evangelicals to the polls for the special election Tuesday. Moore holds a small lead over Democrat Doug Jones.

flyover/red staters complain endlessly about "coastal elites" and their smug condescension. then Trump does the same to other countries and the same Trumpettes who complained about Northern condescension are suddenly all like, "hey man, just calling a shithole a shithole!"

apparently it's okay to denigrate shithole countries but it's not okay to denigrate shithole states ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Comparatively some states may not be as nice as a whole than others, but you can bet I'd rather live in Mississippi than Haiti or Sierra Leone, or even South Africa

I'd rather live in Gabon than the CAR, but I'd still react to someone from Gabon calling the CAR a shithole with incredulity.

Even more so when the only visas for these "shitholes" which allow residency require the immigrant to be far more successful than the troglodytes railing against them.

Never mind those countries are "shitholes" because the US MAKES them shitholes to enrich its multinationals.

This is why it's so important to focus on the the words that he used, so as to avoid confronting the underlying cause of these countries' problems US foreign policy.

Jeremy Corbyn Unveils Radical Plan to Help the Homeless: Buy Them Homes by Ebenezer Cimblesure - Mon, 29 Jan 2018 11:21:42 EST ID:KtqJY6sF No.165242 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

>In an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr on Sunday, U.K. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn outlined the policy his party will immediately pursue to tackle "disgraceful" and "wholly unnecessary" levels of homelessness if it wins a majority in the next election.

>The policy is straightforward: Buy homes for the thousands of British citizens sleeping on the streets. According to government figures released last week, the number of people who slept outside on a given night in 2017 rose 15 percent from the previous year.

>To combat this crisis, Corbyn said a Labour government would "purchase 8,000 properties across the country to give immediate housing to those people who are currently homeless and at the same time require local authorities to build far more."

>"We would give local authorities the power to take over deliberately kept vacant properties," Corbyn added. "There is something grossly insulting about the idea you would build a luxury block... [and] deliberately keep it empty knowing that with property price inflation the investor is going to make 10 percent or 12 percent a year."

I am very aware of the bigger picture. I just assumed you'd understand without it being said. You didn't clearly My concern is not that this won't help but that it underestimates how much help we should give the homeless. Allow me to educate you.

A lot of homeless need more than a job or whatever, a lot of them are mentally ill but not ill enough to be locked up so they're left on the streets self medicating their miserable lives with various substances. There's violence and sexual abuse and this compounds it. After a certain amount of time anyone left out is going to be at huge risk of being fucked up by the process.

Some of them, the unfortunate, the young who haven't been entirely broken and the like will have their lives turned around and prevention by better supporting them earlier is better than cure. The tories cut housing benefits for under 22s which fucks care leavers hard, the most vulnerable of the lot. There's a lady at work who was a care leaver that got tossed out by the government but she was lucky to land on some couches and get a job but she's an isolated example and she shouldn't have needed a friend with a spare couch.

Anyway what you should have understood from my post is this. Extra houses will help but it will not be nearly enough, it needs to be part of a broader approach, one which was at least partly present within the manifesto last year. We still need to get those murdering psychopaths out of power though.

Hmm I guess my mistake was due to my latent Reubenism. nb

It also explains how I trotted out so much word salad there. Actually, I'm going to blame my fucking neighbours on that.
At least they wouldn't be moving house at 2am on Tuesday morning when they're at the top of a block of flats.

That picture killed me and I am in fact dead.

I love Bernie, but Corbyn brings it hard on every issue. If Bernie wasn't scared to voice a radical foreign policy he probably would of won.


I live in a very conservative part of California, but back in the 80s one of the cities rounded up all these people who were living under an on ramp, put them up in a motel for 6 months and gave them city jobs. Something like 80% of them stayed off the street. That's pretty good results.

So your big helpful insight is that this one initiative won't solve every problem at once?

Trump Ignores Russian Sanctions Law by Fanny Clibberfuck - Wed, 31 Jan 2018 07:30:57 EST ID:Cb/UsCp1 No.165298 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

This is a pretty big fucking deal. Congress passed a law requiring Trump to implement new Sanctions on Russia to punish them for their interference in the 2016 elections, Trump signed it because it passed with a veto-proof majority, it became law, and now Trump has announced he's going to ignore the law and not implement the sanctions and everyone has just shrugged. This is the Executive branch outright ignoring the laws congress passed. More specifically, it's Trump ignoring the laws the US congress passed to do the bidding of Vladimir Putin. Now I wonder why he would do that...(hint, the piss tape is real)

Yeah, but only Congress can do anything about it.

Not that was a bad idea in theory. I doubt the founding fathers would have ever guessed that Congress could be so cowed that a President could ignore them and they'd just accept it.

Also, now that Trump has signed it, what exactly does he have to do? I mean its not like the president goes out and tells banks and multi-nationals to stop trading with Russia.

Out of all the things to criticize Trump on, this is like the one thing that most Americans couldn't possibly give a shit about.
