>Canadian police have made a series of arrests in northern British Columbia as they enforced a court injunction to remove activists who have been blocking the construction of a controversial natural gas pipeline on Indigenous territory.

>“It’s a whole damn army up there,” Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief Woos told CBC News as word of the arrests spread. “They’ve got guns on, they’ve got tactical gear on. They look like they’re ready for war.”

>Police previously raided the Gitimd’en checkpoint in January 2019, arresting 14 activists.

>Documents from that raid uncovered by the Guardian suggested that officers were prepared to use lethal force against activists, prompting fierce debate over police tactics. The RCMP have denied they were prepared to shoot protesters.

>According to Ricochet, the RCMP expanded its "exclusion zone" Saturday, taking control of most of the territory of the Gidimt'en, one of the five clans of the Wet'suwet'en.

>"The exclusion zone has been created by the RCMP to force Wet'suwet'en land defenders off our land," the Unist'ot'en Camp said in a statement. "It is a colonial and criminalizing tool to illegally and arbitrarily extend RCMP authority onto our lands. The massive exclusion zone, completely under RCMP authoritarian discretion, falls outside the injunction area. Chiefs and Wet'suwet'en people are illegally being denied access to their own territories."

https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/02/12/wall-street-invading-wetsuweten-territory/
>While protesters have rightly condemned the RCMP actions, they (and the corporate media) have largely overlooked the role of a major player in this whole debacle: Wall Street titan Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., better known as KKR.

>On December 26, 2019 KKR announced the signing of a “definitive agreement” to acquire – along with Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) – a 65 percent equity interest in the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project from TC Energy.

>Only days later, on December 31, a B.C. Supreme Court judge extended an injunction to stop Wet’suwet’en members from blocking access to Coastal GasLink’s work camp. The injunction will reportedly be operative until the pipeline project is completed.

https://www.democracynow.org/2020/2/13/wet_suwet_en_territory_pipeline_opposition
>A major anti-pipeline struggle continues in Canada, where protests have broken out across the country in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en land defenders whose sovereign land in northern British Columbia was raided last week and over the weekend by Canadian police. Dozens were arrested in the days-long raid of unceded indigenous territories, where hereditary chiefs have been in a protracted battle to protect their land from the construction of TransCanada’s 400-mile, $4.7 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline. The raids took place about 700 miles north of Vancouver and sparked outrage across the country. In Ontario, a Mohawk solidarity protest has shut down the Canadian National Railway for days, halting travel for tens of thousands of passengers. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for a quick resolution to the protests on Wednesday. In New York, protesters on Wednesday gathered for a sit-in outside the United Nations headquarters in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en land defenders.

I am, and I encourage others to voice their issues withe the government head on. I called my MLA but she's one of the few leftover NDP people, so she's already on my side. I encourage any Albertan reading this that is unsatisfied with the way the province is being run to call their MLA and and tell them how upset you are, you can find their contact information here http://www.assembly.ab.ca/net/index.aspx?p=mla_home.

If enough people get vocal it could very well make a change. Remember, the government is powerless without its populace. They supposed to work for us. If multi billion dollar oil companies don't have to pay their property tax, why should we?

They have an edge to them, you can see them coming a mile off. When they talk about how one race is the best or one religion is the best, this is what they are doing. They're engaged in a religious race war against people who are essentially other humans they're in economic competition with, and they have no actual morals or standards of behavior or rules of engagement. So they get gullible fools, young people, to look at propaganda every day and they militarize and weaponize feelings of shame, hopelessness, fear, despair, give them a focus, and turn those feelings into hate and anger. The people in actual power lose nothing when this happens, and the rest of us have to deal with the retaliation.

And the retaliation is, once again, since the shooter is dead, people who were not involved in the situation murdering people who look similar to others who were involved, and as long as more people die, we can make the scales balance. This is why everyone tells you to fuck off and stop talking about politics everywhere.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/12/12/21003109/pornography-obscenity-barr-doj-conservatives-libertarians

>tl;dr you can't beat off, our fairy tales said so!

Social conservatives are ready to launch a new national war on pornography.

It’s been nearly 50 years since the Nixon administration’s “War on Porn” and more than two decades since the signing of the Communications Decency Act, the first major federal effort to regulate online pornography. But pornography continues to be a target of Republicans at the state level; in addition, the 2016 Republican Party platform stated that “pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the lives of millions.”

This fall, Republican members of Congress asked the Department of Justice to “declare prosecution of obscene pornography a criminal justice priority.” Conservative commentators also argue that government power can — and should — put a stop to pornography for the benefit of the “common good.” By doing so, social conservatives argue that they can alter American culture itself.

Terry Schilling, executive director of the American Principles Project, a conservative think tank, argued in October in the Catholic magazine First Things that efforts to regulate pornography are part of a broader phenomenon. “In our time, a new conservatism is being born — one less interested in managing our nation’s decline than in using political power to promote virtue, public morality, and the common good,” he wrote. “Conservatives need to overcome their fear of governing the nation that elected them.”

In doing so, social conservatives are facing opposition from libertarians as well as fellow conservatives. They argue that efforts to ban or otherwise tighten regulations on pornography is the kind of overreach they have long stood against.

As Reason Magazine editor-in-chief Katherine Mangu-Ward told me, “What you’re seeing now is this rise of a much more authoritarian and state-oriented variant of conservatism and it just says, ‘You know what? Actually, never mind. Let’s take away the bad choices. Let’s make some bad choices illegal.’ This has long been a characteristic of the American left.”

The first gun control laws were actually with the wording of the second amendment.

There were abolitionists who argued slavery was unconstitutional on the grounds it prevented people from keeping and bearing arms with advocates of slavery arguing that black people didn't have the right to freely convene and form militias so they weren't guaranteed the right.

But I'm sure you knew that being gay for the second amendment and all.

Democrat Primary begins with Iowa delays and uncertainty

The highly anticipated Democratic Primaries have finally started with the Iowa caucuses, and the DNC has already managed to turn it into a shitshow.

The day started off well for Bernie, confident on his campaign's massive ground game and enthusiastic supporters, with the most recent polls showing him lin first place coming into the caucus. The first caucus in Iowa - a special early caucus for night shift workers who can't attend regular caucuses, first offered to voters this year - voted almost unanimously for Sanders from amid the Ethiopian immigrant pork plant workers in the small town of Ottumwa. Other special "satellite" caucuses were offered for the first time this year.
https://theintercept.com/2020/02/03/iowa-first-caucus-satellite-pork-plant-workers/

Things turn a turn for the worse as the main caucuses opened. This primary sees the Democratic Party using for the first time a new app to track and record caucus results. The app was created by a firm called "Shadow" (yes, really), a firm that has received money from the Buttigieg campaign and whose CEO is a Buttigieg fan married to a Buttigieg staffer. Additional "cybersecurity methods" for the caucus was worked on by former Romney staffer Matt Rhodes and legendary failure Hillary staffer Robby Mook.

https://desmoinesregister.com/story/news/2020/01/29/iowa-caucus-cybersecurity-measures-ramping-up/4612169002/

The night started off with caucus officials unable to log into the app due to some sort of error, causing delays. Polling places were changed at the last moment without notification. Turnout at certain precincts was much larger than expected, causing more delays. And as voters and journalists waited for results, the DNC delayed releasing results even further, citing unspecified "quality checks", " inconsistencies", and "quality control". Results have still not been released many hours after the close of polling, highly unusual situation that baffled reporters. In previous elections, results would have been released hours ago.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/02/03/election-2020-iowa-caucus-problems/4652422002/

The Sanders campaign, anticipating this sort of incompetence, has been performing their own data collection that shows Sanders with a comfortable lead. Meanwhile, caucus officials are unable to communicate with the DNC, being put on hold for hours with some resorting to Tweeting and texting results out of desperation. The results show bizarre delegate distributions relative to votes received, with some precincts being decided by fucking coin toss. Despite all this, Pete Buttigieg has claimed victory.

Needless to say, this has made many deeply suspicious that ratfuckery is afoot, and that the DNC is working to rig the primaries like last time.

Also Biden got completely wrecked.

Lent, he said in partially improvised remarks, "is a time to give up useless words, gossip, rumours, tittle-tattle and speak to God on a first name basis," he said.

"We live in an atmosphere polluted by too much verbal violence, too many offensive and harmful words, which are amplified by the internet," he said. "Today, people insult each other as if they were saying 'Good Day.'"

Biblical plague shit all over again
https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/billions-locusts-are-swarming-east-africa-180974135/
>The swarms are massive; one of the largest in Kenya is about 37 miles long and 25 miles wide. For reference, that could cover more than half of Long Island. The swarms, which are dense enough at times to block out the sun, are the worst to hit Ethiopia and Somalia in 25 years, and the worst in Kenya in 70 years.

>Desert locusts eat all the vegetation they encounter, and the finger-length insects consume an amount equal to their body weight each day. Each square kilometer of swarm can include 40 to 80 million locusts and eat as much food as 35,000 people, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/feb/10/food-fears-grow-as-swarms-of-locusts-reach-uganda-and-tanzania
>Even before this outbreak, nearly 20 million people faced high levels of food insecurity across the east African region long challenged by periodic droughts and floods. Some analysts have blamed the locust outbreak on climate change, though a direct link is difficult to establish.

>“We know that cyclones are the originators of swarms – and in the past 10 years there’s been an increase in the frequency of cyclones in the Indian Ocean,” said Keith Cressman, senior locust forecasting officer at the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), earlier this month.

No where near where any of these locusts are. It's east Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, literally part of the cradle of civilization. These aren't highland New Guinea tribesmen separated from the rest of the world by oceans and mountains. It's Somalia and the Arabian Peninsula. Thankfully the locusts diverted to a country that doesn't grow food but hopefully after getting those sultans to kill their camels they go and provide some protein for the starving people in Yemen as an added fuck you to ksa. Even in the middle of continental Africa it has been connected to the rest of the world since the Dutch went in and started taking hands.

Pretty much.

The flu killed two teenagers this year in my country. Got on the news and everything. Covid-19 is way more nasty than the flu, so that is said, but still this thing tends to kill old people and at risk groups. For all we know those young deaths may be due to something unknown underlying stuff. Like smoking.

Weird thing is that it doesn't kill kids. Like The Tribe, for you in your 30's.
