  • 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.

Full on storm troopers in the streets. Police state is shooting at unarmed protestors, deploying ng s ipers and right-wing militias. Media mostly quiet.
>Minneapolis police officers dressed in riot gear fired rubber bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades into crowds of protesters that gathered late Tuesday to demand justice for the killing of George Floyd after video footage showed a cop kneeling on the back of the man's neck as he cried out, "I cannot breathe!"

>Videos and photos posted to social media show people pouring milk into the eyes of demonstrators affected by tear gas as the chemical substance clouds the air, enveloping the thousands of protesters marching in the streets near the site of Floyd's killing.

>"This is a disgusting display," said Jeremiah Ellison, a city council member representing Minneapolis Ward 5. "I'm here on the southside, helping people as I can with milk, water, and towels. So far, I have been unable to prevent the police from firing indiscriminately into the crowd. Moments ago, I held a towel to a teenage girl's head as blood poured from it."

>Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) tweeted that "shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at unarmed protesters when there are children present should never be tolerated. Ever."

>"What is happening tonight in our city is shameful," Omar added. "Police need to exercise restraint, and our community needs space to heal."

>The massive protests erupted in the wake of video footage showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on Floyd's neck as he lay handcuffed and face-first on the asphalt.

>Floyd and onlookers repeatedly pleaded with the officer to take his knee off Floyd's neck, but he refused to do so until an ambulance arrived. By that point, Floyd had been unconscious for minutes. In a statement following the Monday night incident, the Minneapolis Police Department said they were responding to "a report of a forgery in progress" and claimed Floyd's death was caused by an unspecified "medical incident."

>The United States’ Left Coast governors today made it abundantly clear that they — not Donald Trump — will decide when to lift their Stay Home, Stay Healthy orders and allow businesses that are currently closed to fully reopen.

>Washington’s Jay Inslee, Oregon’s Kate Brown, and California’s Gavin Newsom said in a statement provided to the Northwest Progressive Institute that they have decided to form a new alliance called the Western States Pact.


>Trump asserts “total” authority to overrule them.

>Hours after two groups of governors announced that they were forming regional working groups to help plan when it would be safe to ease restrictions and reopen their economies, President Trump asserted in a White House news briefing that the authority to make such decisions rested with him.

>“The president of the United States calls the shots,” Mr. Trump said. “They can’t do anything without the approval of the president of the United States.”

>Asked what provisions of the Constitution gave him the power to override the states if they wanted to remain closed, he said, “Numerous provisions,” without naming any.

Can you please explain to me why exactly I am supposed to not just stay home or vote for that orange retard purely out of spite?
You are literally asking me to vote for a Republican at this point. At least with Donald Trump he is all but guaranteed to crash this corrupt system. Why is that a bad thing again? Seriously this is what the DNC just told us all to shut the fuck up and vote for? Every single day I feel more and more like voting for trump solely to spite the entire democratic party.
>but you'll make trumptards mad
literally is not an argument and after 4 years of disaster you would think anyone can see why that's abysmally fucking stupid. As of today I've gone from mulling over this party or staying home to actively trying to fuck Democrats out of the election at the national level. I want that party to burn to the fucking ground.

Here I'll tell you what you dumb cocksuckers run Bernie as VP. Those are my terms. If Biden does not put Bernie Sanders on as VP I am actively going to vote for Donald Trump out of spite.

>The U.S.-backed regime could be conspiring with the Armed Forces to suspend the elections through a "self-coup d'etat."

>Bolivia's Senate President Eva Copa Friday denounced that the Armed Forces Commander General Sergio Orellana gave lawmakers a week-long ultimatum to ratify their promotions.

>"If they do not comply with our request, the Armed Forces commander-in-chief will approve the promotions, as our regulations establish," Orellana said.

>According to Telesur's correspondent in Bolivia Freddy Morales, however, this threat is very irregular given that only the Senate has the authority to ratify promotions.

>"Bolivia could be on the verge of a joint plan between the Armed Forces and the government to organize a self-coup, as Senate President Eva Copa warned this week," Morales said.

>The main target of this likely self-coup could be the Legislative Branch, which is controlled by the Movement Toward Socialism Party (MAS).

>Without the Legislative Branch, the coup-born regime led by Jeanine Añez could suspend the elections and expand its time in power.​​​​​​​

I lived in Bolivia and all this shit was organized by people from evangelical churches, backed with US money. I talked to many of these nutjobs and basically they hated their pre-hispanic roots because they believe in white superiority, hate aboriginal people (and they're like 80% of the country lol) and want more "economic liberties" like malls or privatization of natural resources like coca or gas.

Thing is, Bolivia is like a time machine, people still live by their old traditions without much technology besides phones and internet. Commercial buildings like malls, supermarkets or fast food joints are nearly non-existant because people buys everything on local mercados. Literally everything is sold on markets; flour, veggies, cereal, milk, clothes, forniture and even refrigerators and tvs. I've even seen official Sony, Samsung and Daewoo stores inside them.

This is literally a rich minority pissed because their country is full of "savages" who can't appreciate material stuff and sodium as much as them. Sadly, they have the connections to start shit like this. And well, they're the ones who are gonna get the rights to exploit gas, wood, coca and all that shit when the US tells them exactly how to write their new law system just like Chile in the 70s.

I remember when this Brazilian evangelical cults started appearing in neighbor countries and told to myself "this shit is gonna hurt south america" and here we are. Fuck evangélicos and christianism, go sit on a piña malditos fanáticos lameverga.

Most plants refuse to close even after dozens of workers keep testing positive. In Sioux Falls, SD the mayor had to actually force a plant to close.

Expect a shortage of meat at big box stores after they exhaust their supply of desperate low wage workers in these rural areas.

Hopefully small local butcher shops see a boom.

Very true. Pandering to this demo is not profitable in the long run because people go to restaurants for their service not their politics. The ones attracted to a "whites only" display on the window would be racial tourists who come from out of town to eat there once in order to make a statement and who would not be return customers unlike the community in which the restaurant is based.

In a sense even Amazon itself including online retail and cloud services are vital infrastructure. And destroying that not only would accomplish nothing if you want to get rid of robber-baron type capitalist it actively helps them.
They are insured against that type of damage and they even get a chance to play the victim.

The way to deal with them is either with the power of the state breaking them up and or nationalizing them. If you don't think you don't think we can't get back control of the state the alternative is some sort of uprising.

>In what climate advocates described as an example of "saying the quiet part loud," Alberta, Canada Energy Minister Sonya Savage in an interview last week said the rise of the coronavirus pandemic has created an ideal opportunity to build pipelines because large in-person demonstrations have become difficult to sustain.

>"Now is a great time to be building a pipeline because you can't have protests of more than 15 people," Savage told Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors podcast host John Bavil in a conversation released on May 22. "Let's get it built."

>Savage was referring to the proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline, a priority of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's climate-killing, pipeline-friendly energy agenda. As Common Dreams reported Monday, over 200 Canadian groups are demanding a just recovery from the pandemic that centers both health and the environment.

>On Monday, Alberta New Democratic Party energy critic Irfan Sabir said that Savage's remarks did not come as a "shock."

>"The UCP have already used the pandemic as an excuse to suspend environmental monitoring," said Sabir. "When combined with the minister's latest comments, this will harm the reputation of Alberta's energy industry and inhibit our ability to attract investment and get our product to market."

>The comments went mostly unnoticed until Monday, when climate activists and campaigners like Fridays for Future founder Greta Thunberg began posting about the interview on social media.

>"Well, at least we are seeing some honesty for once," tweeted Thunberg. "Unfortunately this how large parts of the world are run."
