https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/Evo-Morales-Warns-Coup-Attempt-Underway-in-Bolivia-20191023-0002.html
>Bolivia’s leftist President Evo Morales gave a press conference early Wednesday morning in which he warned that a right-wing coup attempt is being carried out so as to stop the full counting of votes, and annul the result of Sunday's elections if it gives Morales a first-round victory.

>“A coup is underway, carried out by the right-wing with foreign support...what are the methods of this coup attempt? They’re not recognizing or waiting for election results, they’re burning down electoral courts, they want to proclaim the second-place candidate as the winner”, Morales told journalists assembled.

>Morales pointed to the fact he is in the first place and reiterated his victory. However, he also stated that “we are just waiting for the electoral court to report the results, I'm nearly certain that with the vote of the rural areas that we will win in the first round, even though the preliminary results show that we’ve won, but we are respectful and will wait for the official results from the electoral court. I say to the international press, our triumphs have always been with the rural vote.”

>Morales also thanked the Bolivian people for giving his ‘Movement Towards Socialism’ party majority in the legislature, though pointing out that his party has so far fallen short of a two-thirds supermajority.

>Anti-government right-wing protests turned violent Monday with numerous violent attacks took place across the country as preliminary results indicated that leftist President Evo Morales is on course for a first-round victory. Attacks included the burning down of vote counting centers and assaulting Indigenous supporters of Morales.

>The Sunday military coup in Bolivia has put in place a government which appears likely to reverse a decision by just-resigned President Evo Morales to cancel an agreement with a German company for developing lithium deposits in the Latin American country for batteries like those in electric cars.

>"Bolivia's lithium belongs to the Bolivian people," tweeted Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins. "Not to multinational corporate cabals."

>The Morales move on Nov. 4 to cancel the December 2018 agreement with Germany's ACI Systems Alemania (ACISA) came after weeks of protests from residents of the Potosí area. The region has 50% to 70% of the world's lithium reserves in the Salar de Uyuni salt flats.

>Among other clients, ACISA provides batteries to Tesla; Tesla's stock rose Monday after the weekend.

>Morales' cancellation of the ACISA deal opened the door to either a renegotiation of the agreement with terms delivering more of the profits to the area's population or the outright nationalization of the Bolivian lithium extraction industry.

Hong Kong citizens are protesting a potential bill which has since been suspended which will allow extradition to other countries including mainland China. People don't want to get disappeared by Xi so they are taking to the streets. Chill on this source, it's BBC's youtube channel, the original video was some gay iPlayer shit only available in the UK.

>A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

Warning, don't watch my OP webm if you don't want bad vibes. The man behind the gun was fired from the Mesa PD and later acquitted of murder charges. He was then re-hired for a period of 42 days so that he could submit an application for medical retirement based on accidental disability, namely PTSD from the murder in webm related, thereby qualifying him for a lifetime monthly pension if approved.

As a resident of Arizona this case shocked me, as did the footage, and as soon as this scumbag's pic popped up in the news I recognized him. It was in fact the OP image I used when I made the original thread about this incident.

It just goes to show that once again the rules do not apply to those with power, or those they favor.

Truly disgusting and abhorrent. I am very upset by this.

unfortunately, many americans hold the inaccurate opinion that the republican party most closely aligns with a christian world view. abortion is an issue a lot of people vote on before anything else. even though a logical person can see that republicans in fact hate the message of love and giving that jesus taught, many misguided individuals think they are voting for the side closer to god. also deeply embedded racism under multiple layers of denial is a factor.

The system is known to drug these kids, let alone, lose track of them. The Detainees are often moved around without notice to their attorneys and legal representation. I figure warehousing humans under private firms is booming. As well, kids without legal guardianship get placed into pretty bad situations.

NEW YORK — Law enforcement officials say that wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested in New York on sex-trafficking charges.

Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday on charges involving allegations that date to the 2000s.

The officials spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the pending case.

Epstein is expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court. A message was sent to his attorney seeking comment.

Epstein’s arrest was first reported by The Daily Beast.

>The Jeffrey Epstein story is a case study of the abuses and pathologies inherent to extreme wealth. The only way to stop them is to create a world without billionaires.

>In other words, the monstrous, sprawling crimes Epstein is accused of couldn’t have been possible without the extreme wealth inequality that prevails in our current world. And while this fact won’t blow anybody’s mind, it gains extra urgency when you consider some of the other stuff Epstein was planning to do.

>We now know that Epstein wanted to be a twenty-first-century Genghis Khan and flood the human gene pool with his DNA by artificially impregnating scores of women at his New Mexico ranch. He also wanted his head and penis frozen for some as-yet-undisclosed purpose. This is all horrifying enough. But consider also a more mundane but equally horrifying detail about Epstein’s beliefs that has gotten less attention: that Epstein opposed efforts to provide the poor with health care and relief from starvation, because he believed doing so would lead to overpopulation.

>Compound that with the corrosive effects of extreme wealth on the human brain. Both anecdotal evidence and many, many studies show that having wealth and power increases a person’s sense of entitlement — their feeling that they’re not bound by the rules of wider society — while reducing their ability to empathize, exercise moral judgment, and be generous. As one wealth manager told sociologist Brooke Harrington, author of Capital Without Borders: Wealth Managers and the One Percent, “National borders are nothing to them. They might as well not exist. The laws are nothing to them. They might as well not exist. It’s potentially very, very dangerous.”

>This isn’t just something intrinsic to wealth. It’s the natural outcome of concentrated, unaccountable power wielded by a small collection of people largely removed from the lived experience of the vast majority of people on Earth, just as feudalist monarchies and totalitarian dictatorships produced their own classes of people who engaged in extreme cruelty and selfishness, and wielded power simply to perpetuate it. We know where the concentration of wealth and power ultimately leads; the question is whether we’re willing to do something about it.

the hashtag ChileViolatesHumanRights on Twitter compiles dozens, maybe hundreds, of videos of police lobbing tear gas and worse into residential areas, dragging people into secured areas of subway stations, throwing (clearly lifeless or near-dead) people out of speeding vehicles to make their deaths look accidental.

today human rights groups are investigating reports that soldiers are using subway stations as clandestine torture centers after images of hastily-vacated rooms spattered with blood and lengths of rope started cropping up. there’s audio of what the OP says is someone being tortured, recorded from behind the cover of a parked car. some of the main IG accounts i’ve been following are piensaprensaa (two A’s), chileokulto, and radiovillafrancia. they’ve asked not to be tagged since the official channels of communication keep getting blocked. i encourage everyone to read up and spread awareness.

practically every protester has a smartphone and something is really clear in the video footage: the soldiers are terrified. individually they move through the streets like frightened children whistling their way through a dark hallway. in armored vehicles they fire a tear gas canister and tear off like they just attacked a wasp nest. they know the same thing the protesters do: the soldiers are few, and the people are many.

take care of yourselves. make sure you’re eating. go to sleep at a reasonable hour. against tyranny, we are each other’s greatest strength.

So there's a phone number you can dial to call criminals when someone breaks into your house, and the criminals come stop them and provide a report for insurance so you can get your shit back? The police here do what they can as far as the law allows to lock up rapists and murderers. You sound like this homeless nutter I used to know who believed to become a cop you had to commit a rape. Absolute nonsense.
Maybe if you posted some links that didn't come from leftist sensationalist fluff news? And before you say it, I'm not into Breitbart either. Fox isn't really different from CNN but again, not a fan of either.

That said, respondents wanted commercial exchanges with China to continue, with 62% supporting the negotiation of a bilateral free trade agreement.

We had smaller towns in Colorado that wanted to succeed from the state. Like they had no control whatsoever over their own counties, by the so-called liberal counties
that basically keep them in existence. States that wanted to succeed from the US,
if they did, they wouldn't make it without Democratic judgement and competence.

Like the ones (politicians) that hated liberals soo much they wanted to basically give. But when disaster strikes, they sure are there 'begging' for money.

Republicans are not capable of being self-sustaining. Liberals carry their deliberately directed unneeded and unwanted load, plus take care of
business, both for the basic good of the country and the good of Republicans failing and ongoing failures.

https://theintercept.com/2019/10/04/fearful-of-lulas-exoneration-his-once-fanatical-prosecutors-request-his-release-from-prison-but-lula-refuses/
>The same Brazilian prosecutors who for years exhibited a single-minded fixation on jailing former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva are now seeking his release from prison, requesting that a court allow him to serve the remainder of his 11-year sentence for corruption at home. But Lula — who believes the request is motivated by fear that prosecutorial and judicial improprieties in his case, which were revealed by The Intercept, will lead to the nullification of his conviction — is opposing these efforts, insisting that he will not leave prison until he receives full exoneration.

>In seeking his release, Lula’s prosecutors are almost certainly not motivated by humanitarian concerns. Quite the contrary: Those prosecutors have often displayed a near-pathological hatred for the two-term former president. Last month, The Intercept, jointly with its reporting partner UOL, published previously secret Telegram messages in which the Operation Car Wash prosecutors responsible for prosecuting Lula cruelly mocked the tragic death of his 7-year-old grandson from meningitis earlier this year, as well as the 2017 death of his wife of 43 years from a stroke at the age of 66. One of the prosecutors who participated publicly apologized, but none of the others have.

>Far more likely is that the prosecutors are motivated by desperation to salvage their legacy after a series of defeats suffered by their once-untouchable, widely revered Car Wash investigation, ever since The Intercept, on June 9, began publishing reports based on a massive archive of secret chats between the prosecutors and Sergio Moro, the judge who oversaw most of the convictions, including Lula’s, and who now serves as President Jair Bolsonaro’s Minister of Justice and Public Security.

>The prosecutors’ cynical gambit, it appears, is that the country’s Supreme Court — which two weeks ago nullified one of Moro’s anti-corruption convictions for the first time on the ground that he violated core rights of defendants — will feel less pressure to nullify Moro’s guilty verdict in Lula’s case if the ex-president is comfortably at home in São Paulo (albeit under house arrest) rather than lingering in a Curitiba prison.

>But this strategy ran into a massive roadblock when Lula demanded that he not be released from prison unless and until he is fully exonerated. He wants to ensure that nobody — least of all Supreme Court judges who will rule on his appeal — feel relieved of their obligation to decide correctly by telling themselves that there is no need to take such a drastic step as nullifying Lula’s conviction given that he is no longer in jail but at home.

>“I won’t trade my dignity for my freedom,” the former president proclaimed in a hand-written letter “to the Brazilian People,” explaining why he would resist efforts to swap his home for his cage as his prison. “I’ve already proven that the accusations against me are false. It is [the Car Wash prosecutors and Sergio Moro], not me, who are now prisoners of the lies they told Brazil and the world.”

Man, thank god he's an idiot. Someone who knew what they were doing could really set themselves up as a new emperor of Brazil, yet now he might get shot by one of his own supporters for how much he sucks.

Supreme Court declared Lula's imprisonment unconstitutional, he might be freed very soon.

When a newly built plane crashes, it's not a good thing. When two crashes in a short amount of time, you have to wonder...

Yeah but that's capitalism. Socialism is when hungry poor people get food they didn't pay for.
