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.

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.

Backing any candidate is stupid. Back policies. Your vote actually counts in local elections but as far as presidential elections go our votes don't matter after the primaries. One candidate stole the primaries in what is a running trend for his party, the other party cancelled them officially but still legally had to put a ballot out with one option and a write in on it. The electoral votes are pretty much decided at this point, they're supposed to vote the same way as the popular vote goes but often times their votes are cast before the popular votes are even counted and even then they can vote how they want, that's why we don't just use the popular vote, they're a buffer between the people and the machine that runs off them. Getting emotional about backing either and not voting for a third party or writing in something dumb like Coom or Phil McCrackin on the November presidential ballot and taking the high ground over it is sanctimonious rube shit.

That's not a fair argument. Both Denmark and Norway where I live now has basically the same regime as Sweden after opening up beyond closed borders, and like Sweden our numbers are still going down the past 3-4 weeks. Such reorganization of society to work around the virus actually works.

The only difference is that we chose to lock down in order to force down the spread to an acceptable level and then let it spread to hopefully below 1:1. That's where we should criticise Sweden, not their efforts to make society slow the spread and flatten the curve. That work is effective against Covid.

>"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.​​​​​​​

>City Officials Charged with Accepting Bribes from Drug Pushers
A Calexico City, California councilman and mayor pro tem, along with a commissioner on the city’s Economic Development and Financial Advisory Commission, were charged in federal court today with accepting cash bribes in exchange for promises of official action by the city.

Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Robert S. Brewer Jr., and Acting Special Agent in Charge Omer Meisel of the FBI’s San Diego Field Office made the announcement.

According to a charging document, David Romero 36, and Bruno Suarez Soto, 28, both of Calexico, California, accepted $35,000 in cash bribes from an undercover FBI agent who they believed represented investors seeking to open a cannabis dispensary in Calexico. In return, Romero and Soto “guaranteed” the rapid issuance of a city permit for the dispensary, and to revoke or hinder other applicants if necessary to ensure that the bribe payer’s application was successful. Moreover, both men admitted they had taken bribes from others in the past, according to the charging document.

In addition to being a councilman, Romero serves as Calexico’s mayor pro tem, meaning he was set to become mayor in July 2020. Soto was recently appointed to the city commission responsible for promoting business and community growth and coordinating with prospective developers to help them invest in the city of Calexico.

The charges allege that during a Dec. 19, 2019, meeting at a restaurant in Calexico with the undercover FBI agent, Romero and Soto agreed to fast-track the agent’s purported application for a cannabis dispensary permit and guaranteed its rapid issuance in exchange for a $35,000 bribe. The defendants also offered to delay permit applications by competitors, court records said.

The charging document further alleges that toward the conclusion of the Dec. 19, 2019 meeting, when the undercover agent asked if Romero and Soto might later ask for more than the $35,000 payment, Romero assured him that they would not. “This is done. Set and sealed,” Romero allegedly said. Romero explained that he and Soto would require the money to be paid up front, however, because they had done similar work for other people, and those people had not paid the agreed-upon fee after the favors had been rendered. Soto later added, “This isn’t our first rodeo.” Romero and Soto agreed to accept payment of the $35,000 from the agent in two installments, however: half up front, and half “when it’s a for sure thing.”

The fuck is your problem? If you think any of this benefits anyone except for those taking the bribes (which includes the extortion tier permit costs on the west coast, which go to fuel 100k+ salaries for paper pushers) then you're completely retarded. A retarded racist fuck.

White House blockades & seizes PPE/ventilators for states, forces them to smuggle

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/04/hospitals-face-a-white-house-blockade-for-coronavirus-ppe.htm
l>Over the last few weeks, it has started to appear as though, in addition to abandoning the states to their own devices in a time of national emergency, the federal government has effectively erected a blockade — like that which the Union used to choke off the supply chains of the Confederacy during the Civil War — to prevent delivery of critical medical equipment to states desperately in need. At the very least, federal authorities have made governors and hospital executives all around the country operate in fear that shipments of necessary supplies will be seized along the way. In a time of pandemic, having evacuated federal responsibility, the White House is functionally waging a war against state leadership and the initiative of local hospitals to secure what they need to provide sufficient treatment.

>On top of that outrage, the Feds are bidding against states who are trying to buy their own supplies, and refusing to interfere in those auctions between states, which have driven prices up by ten times or more. But while you might think that was as bad as federal management of this crisis could be, it is not. This new outrage is deeper: Even those states that are trying to manage their own resources, buying equipment themselves with incredibly scarce resources to aid in a time of crisis, are being stopped, and those resources seized on the way to delivery.

>You could call this piracy. You could call it sanctions. The federal government is choking supply chains to states like it chokes supply chains to Iran and North Korea. These blockades aren’t as complete as those surrounding sanctioned regimes, of course, and some amount of the disruption may be honest confusion in a time of crisis. But the disruption is being brought about by federal interference, and unlike the kind of disruptions you’d want to engineer against antagonistic states, the purpose seems completely unclear — indeed the policy is inexplicable and indefensible.

>Which may be one reason why no explanation has been given. We don’t know where these supplies are going. We don’t know on what grounds they are being seized, or threatened with seizure.

https://truthout.org/articles/systemic-racism-is-making-coronavirus-worse-in-black-america/
>The COVID-19 global pandemic is a nightmare unfolding before our eyes that could have devastating impacts that Black Americans could feel most acutely. With scarce testing, health care workers and ventilators, combined with a pattern of red state governors ignoring science and placing profits above people, there are signs that Black communities across the country are bearing the brunt of an inept federal response and unjust health care system unprepared to handle the surge of COVID-19 patients.

>This, of course, doesn’t have to be the case, but government failure and systemic racism means far too many Black people, especially in the South, will lose their lives unless government leaders immediately course correct from the predictable and alarming outcomes ahead.

>Preliminary data show high case counts among Black residents in emerging hotspots, including New Orleans, New York, Detroit, Milwaukee, Charlotte and Albany, Georgia. There are also reports from cities, including St. Louis and Nashville, that predominantly Black neighborhoods have been slow to receive testing sites and equipment compared to white, affluent areas.

https://www.blackagendareport.com/coronavirus-and-crisis-african-american-human-rights
>White “America” pretends once again to be surprised by the emerging facts that African Americans are disproportionately bearing the brunt of the coronavirus assault. But why should anyone be surprised? African Americans make up a disproportionate number of the 87 million people in the U.S. who are under-insured or lack health insurance, who occupy the lowest paid jobs, jobs today deemed “essential.” It is in our communities where the toxic waste dumps are located, the petroleum processing companies, the hog farms, garbage dumps, the buildings with lead paint and asbestos, and the highways pumping out millions of tons of pollution every day.

>And it is in our communities that, before gentrification, over the last 40 years, governments under the pressure of neoliberal austerity cut budgets and services. It was in our communities, both urban and rural, where the hospitals and clinics were closed, the sewer and sanitation deteriorated and something as basic to life as water was commodified, contaminated and often cut off.

https://theintercept.com/2020/04/09/nyc-coronavirus-deaths-race-economic-divide/
>While the data is still incomplete and factors contributing to the spread of the coronavirus are not yet fully understood, some experts caution against interpreting the racial disparity as caused by race itself. “It can make sense to point to race as a proxy for other causal factors, such as greater rates of poverty and poorer access to health care,” said Adolph Reed, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Pennsylvania. But Reed warned of the danger of “neatly tying up the specific epidemiological factors for coronavirus or other bad health outcomes with the ribbon of race.”

>“Insofar as people insist on race as the framework, then it clouds what the causal mechanisms are,” said Reed. Race correlates with poverty, a lack of sick leave, exposure to pollution, jobs that leave employees exposed to the coronavirus, and a need to take subways and buses, which can be a source of exposure.

https://www.theblaze.com/news/2020/05/19/minnesota-imam-ilhan-omar-fraudulently-raised-cash/

Summary: Ilhan Omar solicits funds to feed the disabled and elderly, claiming she's partnered with state charity organization GMCC. She solicits these funds via another organization, ActBlue. The executive director of GMCC immediately rebuffs Ilhan Omar — she claims there is no partnership and has no idea where the solicited funds are going. Ilhan Omar deletes her tweet and fundraising link.

This understandably blows up among Conservative media as yet another incident of fraud committed by Omar. Days later, the executive director of GMCC finally announces that she will receive Omar's solicited funds. Was this simply a misunderstanding between a high-profile politician and executive director? "No," says another local leader partnered with GMCC, who insists that the charity avoids politicization and that Omar's camp hijacked his one of his event at a local restaurant despite clear instructions to owners.

This comes as just one of the many eyebrow-raising incidents regarding congresswoman Omar, with others including accused marriage and student loan fraud. I ask you for your comments — how is it that a member of Congress can have so much dirty laundry and yet remain unscathed?

Mississippi Church Suing on Virus Restrictions Burns Down

A church in Mississippi has been destroyed by a suspected arson fire about a month after its pastor filed a lawsuit challenging the city of Holly Springs on restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

HOLLY SPRINGS, MISS. (AP) — A church in Mississippi was destroyed by a suspected arson fire, about a month after its pastor filed a lawsuit challenging the city of Holly Springs on gathering restrictions amid the coronavirus outbreak.

First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, Mississippi, burned down Wednesday morning, news outlets reported. When investigators from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office got to the scene, they found graffiti in the church parking lot that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrites.”

“We’ve kind of racked our brains and we have no idea,” Jerry Waldrop, the pastor of the church, said. “No enemies that we know of. We don’t know anyone that we even think could be capable of doing something like this.”

Waldrop had filed a lawsuit against the city of Holly Springs last month, alleging police officers had disrupted a church bible study and Easter service. Holly Springs City Attorney Shirley Byers said nearly 40 parishioners inside the church building were not practicing social distancing on April 10 when a violation citation was issued for the church.

Churchgoers practiced social distancing while indoors and only held indoor services when bad weather would not allow them to gather outside, the lawsuit said. Waldrop's complaint also asked for a temporary restraining order to keep city officials from preventing church services.

While Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves's safer-at-home order allowed churches to operate as essential businesses, Byers said the city did not give churches the same latitude until they amended their local order in late April to allow for drive-thru services. She said Waldrop’s lawsuit has yet to be served.

Authorities are offering a reward for tips on the arson investigation.

Guys I don't think some stoner venting on an imageboard is the font of all violence in the world.

It's pretty cringy, sure, but you're not some modern day Jesus by yelling at him for talking shit.

What if I think the pastor should get bit by one of the snakes he handles or the children he probably molested? What if I think it's a shame he didn't accidentally self immolate while staging this, am I a bad person?

No matter how let down you feel by society, there's no excuse for becoming a terrorist and hurting innocent people who had nothing to do with why you're upset.

Nobody's arguing that, but you'd be a fool to think we couldn't help prevent this sort of thing from happening in the first place with cultural and mental health reforms. American society encourages the sort of social isolation that produces derangement and then tells the products of such isolation to bitch up. It's not a shocker that some of them turn bad as a result.

Yes, it is a shocker. It's absolutely crazy. It is not natural for a socially isolated person to desire to commit mass murder.
