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.'"

It's a good sentiment but the old Italian and Filipino ladies that are going to listen to him already only insult people passive aggressively with religious retweets anyway so I don't think it will make a dent. Most hot takes come from atheists and evangelicals or eastern orthodox people mascaraing as them anyway.

Canadian police raid indigenous activists protecting their land against oil pipeline

>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.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2020/02/09/climate-justice-and-indigenous-rights-advocates-rally-solidarity-wetsuweten-people
>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.

Yea, I hear ya. Police can be very indifferent to the way they handle issues. vets. Maybe deliberate or not understanding. I used to hang out with Vietnam vets when I was a teenager. People do go through rough times. My grandpa was a pow for 4 years. Was likely tortured. He did become a
sheriff of his born and raised small town South Dakota. A very down to earth person. Some funny small town stories where everybody knows everybody but nobody took anything too seriously. The morning crop report, the diner, cars.

Yea, some have reasons they would rather be left to get food on their terms. Many take it as maybe being somewhat indifferent. Many are also somewhat distrustful. In all I think people would rather get help with maybe a simple hand out, to then decide their own direction from there. Simple as that.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/22/climate/trump-environment-water.html

>The Trump administration on Thursday finalized a rule to strip away environmental protections for streams, wetlands and groundwater, handing a victory to farmers, fossil fuel producers and real estate developers who said Obama-era rules had shackled them with onerous and unnecessary burdens.

From Day 1 of his administration, President Trump vowed to repeal President Barack Obama’s “Waters of the United States” regulation, which had frustrated rural landowners. His new rule, which will be implemented in about 60 days, is the latest step in the Trump administration’s push to repeal or weaken nearly 100 environmental rules and laws, loosening or eliminating rules on climate change, clean air, chemical pollution, coal mining, oil drilling and endangered species protections.

The new water rule for the first time in decades allow landowners and property developers to dump pollutants such as pesticides and fertilizers directly into hundreds of thousands of waterways, and to destroy or fill in wetlands for construction projects.

>A huge strike swept France on Thursday as millions of workers revolted against pension attacks from president Emmanuel Macron.

>It is set to be the most significant wave of workers’ action since 1995 when protracted strikes broke a right-wing government’s assault on pensions.
>A teacher said “The pension reforms are one blow too many. We're fighting not to lose hundreds of euros of pension a month—after more than 40 years in a job.

>Hundreds of demonstrations took place, beginning at 10am in some areas. The CGT union federation said 1.5 million people marched nationwide. Even the interior ministry said over 800,000 took part.

>In several places they were met with tear gas.
>In Paris 6,000 police officers were deployed against protests and the authorities issued a decree forbidding protesters from gathering on the Champs-Elysées or at police stations.
>Riot police began searching pedestrians' bags before dawn, and shops on a planned protest route were ordered to close.

>In many areas the Yellow Vests, who have been fighting Macron for a year, joined the action. There is a massive feeling that life is hard and public services are declining. A poll last month in the newspaper Liberation found 89 percent of French people felt the country was experiencing a “social crisis”.

>It’s crucial to bring together all the sections of strikers and protesters, and to stop the union leaders choking off the action before it wins.

>The mass strikes and protests are giving hope to the whole of Europe. They show that the bitterness in society can be torn away from the right and the racists and directed towards the left.

Wikileaks reveals documents casting doubt on Trump version of Syria gas attacks

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/12/16/chem-d16.html
>Documents published by WikiLeaks on Saturday confirm that there is significant dissent within the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the global chemical weapons watchdog, over the doctoring of a public report on the alleged April 7, 2018 chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, which reportedly killed 49 people and wounded as many as 650.

>The latest round of revelations makes clear that the US-led regime-change operation in Syria, which began in 2011, has been based on a pack of lies. The role of WikiLeaks in exposing these lies demonstrates why the US government has been pursuing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange so ferociously, along with Washington's partners in crime such as Britain and Australia.

>Relying on video that showed alleged victims of the attack in a hospital gasping for air and foaming at the mouth, the Trump administration and its European allies launched missile strikes against Syria just one week later. The US-led attack was an act of war that threatened to spark a wider conflict with Russia and Iran, both of which have military forces deployed in the country to back the Assad government in the eight-year regime-change war fueled by the CIA.

>Relying on Islamist terrorist groups as “moderate rebel” proxies, including Al Qaeda and its affiliates, the US and its European allies have overseen a war that has resulted in the deaths of 570,000 people and displaced more than 12 million. The years of carnage have been aimed at overthrowing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and installing a pliant Western puppet regime in order to neutralize the influence of Iran and Russia in the oil-rich Middle East. Claims of chemical weapons attacks and the use of “barrel bombs” by Syria’s military have been repeatedly used throughout the war in an effort to justify Western military action and call for the removal of Assad.

>A memo sent to Fernando Arias, the director-general of the OPCW, on March 14, 2019 by a member of the FFM who had been sent to Douma to analyze the ballistics of two cylinders which were the purported source of the toxic gas, noted that there were about 20 inspectors who had expressed concerns over the final report published at the beginning of that month.

>The author of the memo notes that members of the FFM felt that the report “did not reflect the views of the team members that deployed to Douma,” and that only one OPCW inspector who had been in Syria, a paramedic, was ultimately involved in the production of the final report. He notes that his investigation into the provenance of the cylinders, one which was found lying on a bed and another on an apartment rooftop, was excluded from the final report released in March.

>WikiLeaks also published the first draft of the interim FFM report, which noted that the investigators were “unable to provide satisfactory explanations for the relatively moderate damage to the cylinders allegedly dropped from an unknown height, compared to the destruction caused to the rebar-reinforced roofs.” This fact--that the evidence did not point to the cylinders being dropped from Assad’s aircraft--was excluded from the final report.

>An email exchange with the FFM’s team leader, Sami Barrek, from July 2018 showed that concerns had been raised by an investigator over the exclusion from the final report of the fact that only low levels of chlorinated organic chemicals (COCs) had been recovered at the scene, and that no determination had been made on how the cylinders arrived at the locations where they had been discovered. Despite repeated interventions by investigators, the level of COCs was excluded from the final report, allowing for the inference that a chlorine gas attack had been confirmed.

>Another email sent by a dissenting investigator to OPCW Director of Strategy and Policy Veronika Stromsíková on May 20 raised concerns over the organization’s false declaration that veteran OPCW inspector and ballistics expert Ian Henderson, who had produced an engineering assessment, was not part of the FFM in Douma. The claim came after his report casting doubt on the possibility of the cylinders being dropped from the air was leaked to the press. Henderson had found, after inspecting the cylinders, that there was a “higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed… rather than being delivered from aircraft.”

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.

>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.”

Didnt really read anything other than your bit about Nixon. They started against Cannabis back in the prohibition days, remember? That was also when they started eroding the 2nd amendment with the NFA.

Billions of locusts swarming East Africa, worst in decades

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).

>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.
