Billions of Puerto Rico's debt invalid according to federal oversight board by Thomas Sunkinbury - Thu, 17 Jan 2019 17:08:24 EST ID:E8/PTX6R No.173701 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I know this will probably get ratfucked and overturned but it's still nice to hope:
>SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The federal control board (FOMBPR) that oversees Puerto Rico’s finances is asking a court to invalidate more than $6 billion worth of debt issued by the U.S. territory, a move that would hit bondholders.

>The board said late Monday the debt includes all general obligation bonds that were issued in 2012 and 2014 in “clear violation” of debt limits established by Puerto Rico’s Constitution. Instead of adhering to a balanced budget requirement, they were used to finance deficit spending.

>“This really is a milestone,” Puerto Rico economist José Caraballo told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “It is perhaps the board’s best move in its two years of existence."

>It is unclear when a judge would rule on the board’s motion, but Caraballo said it gives the government bargaining power, noting that Detroit made a similar move during its bankruptcy.

>Caraballo said those who bought general obligation bonds during that time might accept a big cut instead of risking a total loss, according to him, most of them are hedge funds and not individual investors.

A rocket carrying a satellite on a mission to deliver the world's first artificial meteor shower blasted into space on Friday, Japanese scientists said.

A start-up based in Tokyo developed the micro-satellite for the celestial show over Hiroshima early next year as the initial experiment for what it calls a "shooting stars on demand" service. The satellite is to release tiny balls that glow brightly as they hurtle through the atmosphere, simulating a meteor shower.

It hitched a ride on the small-size Epsilon-4 rocket that was launched from the Uchinoura space center by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on Friday morning. The rocket is carrying a total of seven ultra-small satellites that will demonstrate various "innovative" technologies, JAXA spokesman Nobuyoshi Fujimoto told AFP.

Oh man every day this is more and more looking like a complete fucking disaster
The funniest thing is how UKIP touted this as some kind of keep bri'un white scheme and no euros and blah blah after fucking Ireland into it, and in reality all it's going to end up doing is sending home all the Eastern European labor and keeping all the Pakistanis. It's just funny to me how racists logic works out. Meanwhile not only is it going to cost a fuckload of money and probably devalue the pound really would've been nice if you guys could've pulled this stunt back when MXE and everything was coming through British RC vendors but now they're starting to take military preparations in case of riots and chaos. Notice you don't see this asshole anymore either.

I mean in terms of labor I have mixed feelings about it because on one hand yeah it fucks opportunity for say Polish and Baltic workers, but on the other free trade and free movement always was a Capitalist scheme which as you all know really just translates to maximizing profits for the owning class. Like they keep talking about labor shortages and I'm just thinking, dude I wish we had labor shortages here. It's simple supply and demand. When you flood the job market you decrease the value of labor and when you can't do that you outsource to India and China. No matter what it's a scheme to pay your workers less while making more money. If it floors the cost of labor maybe you should pay your employees more to attract them? I like how retarded ancaps never address the labor side of free markets in their theories, or talk about labor as commodity with manipulations in supply and demand by their oligarch faggots.

Anyway one thing I hope from all this is Corbyn gaining power and one Ireland.

Chechens gonna Chech
>Two people have been killed and nearly 40 detained in a new crackdown on LGBT people in Russia’s Chechnya region, activists have said. The deaths were reportedly caused by the use of torture by police.

>The reports on Monday echo those from 2017, when hundreds of gay men were rounded up by police in Chechnya and subjected to beatings and electric shocks in secret prisons, provoking international condemnation and sanctions.

>If confirmed, the new detentions and killings would show that pressure on Russia and the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, has not dissuaded him from presiding over modern-day pogroms against LGBT people in the conservative republic.

>Previous victims have described the brutal tactics used by Chechen law enforcement against LGBT people in the republic. One young Chechen man said he had been beaten with metal rods, subjected to electric shocks and verbally abused for his sexual orientation. Three young men were reportedly killed in that crackdown.

Notice how you don't actually have an argument of your own. Just mud slinging and shame tactics. 99.9% of the time, it's people like you who are the irrational ones. Why don't you try deflecting criticism away from a fucking literal anti-gay Islamic pogrom in front of actual rational people (not just fart sniffers from your personal echo chamber) and see what happens.

Did you actually read the thread at all before you made your little butthurt knee-jerk response? Nobody's saying that non-Islamic countries aren't bigoted towards gay people too, just that Islamic countries are the worst for it. You get life in prison for being gay in majority Christian Uganda. That's obviously a horrible thing and nobody outside of the little imaginary strawmen you have dancing around inside your mind are defending it (not like people like you are defending Islam). But of all the countries in the world that practice the death penalty for homosexuality, only one of them isn't majority Islamic (it's only about half Islamic).

Not all religions are made equal. This is not a level playing field. To deny that Islam is the most violently anti-LGBT of the major world religions in effect at the moment is to deny reality. I know I keep saying the same shit here, but you slimeballs just don't seem to be listening to reason.

No I wasn't. I don't know much about the topic, so I didn't post in that thread at all. I know that hasn't stopped you from showing up and vomitting your ill-informed opinions everywhere, but thankfully I'm not as ignorant as you are. I haven't even said a thing in this thread that could possibly be interpreted as having anything at all to do with Cuban acoustic weaponry or whatever the fuck that thread was about.

Take notice though, how the people who refuse to acknowledge the facts here are also the same people who either don't have an argument at all, ignore every argument made that proves them wrong or generally just act like a petulant child in hopes that the mods will come along and soothe their whimpering by banning everyone who disagrees with them.

Americans have learned nothing from history.

Rome was an immoral bankrupt, warmongering, tyrannical empire. Now the US is an immoral bankrupt, warmongering, tyrannical empire.

The US stock market crashed in 1929 and the USA made the depression worse by having a trade war. The US economy collapsed in 2008 and now the US will make the depression worse by having another trade war.

The US was stuck in a quagmire in Vietnam and now the US is stuck in quagmires in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, and Niger.

The USSR was a police state where everything was illegal so the Russians gave up and the Soviet Union collapsed. Now the US is a police state where everything is illegal so Americans have given up and the US will collapse.

Leading Democrats are seizing on a bombshell report alleging that President Donald Trump instructed Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney, to lie before Congress, pledging to investigate for possible obstruction of justice.

"We know that the President has engaged in a long pattern of obstruction. Directing a subordinate to lie to Congress is a federal crime," House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) tweeted on Friday morning. "The @HouseJudiciary Committee’s job is to get to the bottom of it, and we will do that work."

>With the 5-2 decision, New Orleans became the first city in the United States to turn its entire school system over to an all-charter system. Oddly, with this vote, the OPSB appears to have ceded much of its own authority by default to InspireNOLA, although the McDonogh Alumni Association had called on the board to maintain direct control over the school.

Good on you for at least seeing the full picture of it, police unions are the only ones left with any political power.

I worked at a unionized hotel once, it was hell, there was just that handful of people who read the union handbook front to back and were really clear on their rights to not work as hard as the phillipino kids who hadn't paid their dues yet. But idk, that feels like more the consequences of what a union can actually accomplish in the 21st century, and in Canada so its not like they're fighting to get their workers a living wage.

I, for one, am glad that we didn't start a World War over a few horny insects:
>Last September – on the symbolically meaningful date of September 11 – NBC and MSNBC breathlessly trumpeted what they regarded as a major exclusive scoop: that Russia is “the main suspect” in what the network called “mysterious attacks” that led to “brain injuries” in U.S. personnel in Cuba.” They put CIA loyalist Ken Dilanian on the air to explain – based, needless to say, on the script given to him by intelligence officials who, as always, are shielded from accountability by them with anonymity – that “sophisticated microwaves or another type of electromagnetic weapon were likely used on the U.S. government workers” and that it was Russia which likely engineered the attack.

>In 2017, Associated Press obtained and published recordings of the sounds the embassy personnel complained of hearing. Rather than being the by-product of some sort of Bond-villain weapon cooked up in Kremlin laboratories, the scientists concluded that the sounds match those made by a specific species of Caribbean crickets during mating season

>One of the scientists, Dr. Stubbs, emphasized the certainty of their findings in an interview with the New York Times: “I can say fairly definitively is that the A.P.-released recording is of a cricket, and we think we know what species it is.” The villain behind the noises is the male indies short-tailed cricket, pictured below in what NBC News may soon use as his Interpol mugshot

>Indeed – contrary to the sensationalistic MSNBC screen graphics – serious doubt has been cast on whether U.S. “diplomats” in Cuba even suffered brain injuries at all. As the Guardian’s Science Editor, Ian Sample, reported in August: “Claims that US diplomats suffered mysterious brain injuries after being targeted with a secret weapon in Cuba have been challenged by neurologists and other brain specialists.”

As a general rule you should be instantly suspicious when the US State Dept and CIA tell you anything that an uncooperative Latin American country maybe did a bad thing, theoretically, with no proof, but it could also be crickets, and then independent researchers come to the conclusion that yes it was crickets, but wait hold on you should still be mad at those uncooperative latinos because

It's right there in the OP, if you had bothered to read before spazzing out.

>The Guardian was referring to “four separate letters to the Journal of the American Medical Association” from “groups of doctors specialising in neurology, neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology” that “described what they believed were major flaws in the study” commissioned by the U.S. Government that originally claimed that brain injuries were detected. These experts all insisted that the original doctors “misinterpreted test results, overlooked common disorders that might have made the workers feel sick, or dismissed psychological explanations for their symptoms.”

>BOSTON (Reuters) - The former chief executive of Insys Therapeutics Inc (INSY.O) pleaded guilty on Wednesday to participating in a nationwide scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe an addictive opioid medication and has agreed to become a government witness.

>Michael Babich, who resigned as the Arizona-based drugmaker’s CEO in 2015, pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston to conspiracy and mail fraud charges after entering into a cooperation deal with prosecutors.

>Babich, 42, faces up to 25 years in prison. But the Arizona resident could receive a more lenient sentence by testifying at Kapoor’s Jan. 28 trial. Assistant U.S. Attorney Fred Wyshak in court said Babich committed his crimes at Kapoor’s direction.

>Prosecutors said Insys paid doctors kickbacks in the form of fees to participate in speaker programs ostensibly meant to educate medical professionals about Subsys that were actually sham events.
