On July 18, 2018, 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts vanished while out for a run in the small town of Brooklyn, Iowa. Her disappearance sparked a national controversy, catapulted the issue of immigration into the public eye, and turned this young sophomore’s story into political fodder.

Brooklyn, Iowa, is a small, tight-knit rural community just off U.S. Route 6 and a few miles north of Interstate 80. With a population of just 1500, the people of the "Community of Flags" boasted a safe, secure neighborhood where leaving your doors unlocked was normal, and the possibility of crime was the farthest thing from anyone's mind.

But on a fateful evening in the summer of July 2018, all of that changed.

https://preview.redd.it/inxuteu3qym71.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=164e05f84dd2c43dd1eb97bc0b6c9ead7ed4cf1f

WHO WAS MOLLIE TIBBETTS?

Mollie Cecilia Tibbetts was born on May 8, 1998, in San Francisco, California, to Rob Tibbetts and Laura Calderwood. She was the middle child with an older brother Jake and a younger brother Scott.

Growing up, Mollie attended elementary school in the Bay Area until second grade before moving to the small community of Brooklyn, Iowa, with her mother and two brothers after her parents separated in 2007.

Mollie had enrolled at Brooklyn, Guernsey, and Malcom Community School, otherwise known as BGM. She quickly settled in, making many new friends and immersing herself in theatre, writing, and running.

Friends, family, and teachers said that Mollie was a caring, all-American young woman with a heart of gold. She loved to help others and was always there when someone needed a shoulder to lean on.

Mollie had an infectious laugh and a beautiful smile with a good sense of humor. She didn't take herself too seriously and liked to mess around.

In 2015, at a football game, Mollie met Dalton Jack.

Dalton and one of his friends were sitting in his truck. Another girl came up and talked to the friend in the passenger's seat. Mollie wanted to be part of the conversation, so she walked to the driver's side and tapped on Dalton's window.

And at that point, Dalton says, "we just got in our own little world."

Within two weeks, the pair were dating, and over the next three years, their relationship deepened. Dalton said Mollie was the love of his life, and he'd started putting together plans for a romantic beach proposal in August.

After graduating from BGM high school in 2017, Mollie went on to study psychology at the University of Iowa. The career path was an obvious match for Molli

Megathread: GOP Blocks Bipartisan Probe of Deadly Jan. 6 Riot at Capitol

Senate Republicans on Friday blocked creation of a bipartisan panel to study the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, turning aside the independent investigation in a show of party loyalty to former President Donald Trump and an effort to shift the political focus away from the violent insurrection by his GOP supporters.

The Senate vote was 54-35 — short of the 60 votes needed to take up a House-passed bill that would have formed a 10-member commission evenly split between the two parties. It came a day after emotional appeals from police who fought with the rioters and lawmakers who fled Capitol chambers that day.

Six Republicans (Portman, Sasse, Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney) voted with Democrats to move forward. Eleven senators missed the rare Friday vote.

Background

Randy Fine is an American Republican politician and former gambling industry executive who was first elected to the Florida House of Representatives from the 53rd district in 2016 and re-elected in 2018 and 2020. His district covers southern Brevard County. His life depicts a man who is steeped in corrupt and unethical practices and arrogant behavior. Despite numerous lawsuits and formal legal complaints, the multimillionaire casino guy continues to represent over 100k residents of Brevard County in The Florida State Legislature and is yet to be held accountable by law enforcement, elections, or otherwise.

While he attended Harvard, he participated in Student government. >"...he used the Undergraduate Council's name to win a federal grant for himself, without telling the council of his actions. I asked Fine about the grant Wednesday night. He reacted with contempt, pointing out that I had the amount of the grant wrong (I thought it was for $8,000; it was actually for $24,000). He sought to blame The Crimson for misreporting details of the story. And he refused to acknowledge that he had done something wrong. (What exactly happened to the $24,000 is still not clear. Fine admitted Wednesday that he spent it; he didn't say how.)"

As a gambling executive/consultant back in 2011-12 he had his tribal gaming license revoked in New Mexico after ripping off Native Americans. He sued in federal court and the case was dismissed. He was also part of a scam in Atlantic City, NJ that involved false advertising and the casino that hired him being forced to pay back people it ripped off

Ex-Army MI here. I wrote a short manual, since we're all open-source intel analysts now, that may be useful for answering "How do I know when it's Agenda info?" and "How do I wake up others?" Give it a read. Hope it helps.

THE CHECKLIST AND THE JUMP:  IDENTIFYING THE ENEMY IN TODAY’S INFORMATION

INTRODUCTION

We will call the enemy Agenda. It doesn’t matter what we call him – he's there regardless.

Our objective is to locate Agenda in our consumption of information by utilizing critical thinking, exercising discernment, and considering historical examples. We will locate when information promotes Agenda by comparing the information before us against a series of simple questions – the checklist. We will proceed in the manner of Socrates, making no assumptions of our own knowledge nor holding any prejudices against the knowledge of others. We’ll keep our inquiry on course by sticking to the checklist.

THE CHECKLIST

When consuming information, ask yourself: Is what I’m listening to (or reading or watching) promoting a policy (or policies) that do one or more of the following:

  1. Restrict my rights.

  2. Make me poorer and/or less safe.

  3. Enlarge the national security apparatus.

  4. Needlessly endanger our people in uniform (that is, send them to conflicts/wars of choice).

  5. Stress our differences rather than recognize our commonalities (that is, push the divide and conquer con).

  6. Label me morally lacking (that is, make a scapegoat of me) for disagreeing with policies that promote any of the above.

That’s it. Too easy.

If you answer “yes” to any of the above criteria in the checklist, then you should conclude that the information you’re consuming is probable Agenda propaganda.

How do we develop critical thinking skills? Language awareness. Words and phrases that get introduced and are widely repeated within a short period of time (“defund the police” / “migrant caravan) often reveal Agenda’s hand. How often did you hear the words “defund” or “caravan” before you heard them repeated in the news cycle surrounding particular political objectives? Notice what you notice; notice words and phrases suddenly appearing and being repeated in the news and by political figures. Ask yourself if the political objectives utilizing new words and phrases that you notice are meant to make you poorer or less safe or are otherwise detrimental to you (and by extension, to the country). Use the checklist. If you conclude in the affirmative, then Agenda likely is behind those language choices.

When analyzing information, do not fall into the historically shortsighted tendency of labeling corrupt media as “left wing.” It’

Obviously, there is tight competition for worst governors. Due to the sheer amount of harmful/restrictive laws during the first half of 2021, I argue DeSantis and Abbott are top of the list.

##Introduction

Before we start, let’s define critical race theory (CRT) since this post deals with it and so much rightwing misinformation has been thrown about.

In the simplest, most basic terms, critical race theory is a framework for examing America’s history through the lens of racism. Proponents argue that racism has played a central role in America’s formation and successive history up to and including modern times. For (a very simplified) example, the practice of redlining led to a racial wealth gap that persists today, affecting crime rates and mass incarceration. Using CRT as a tool, scholars try to uncover systemic and institutional racism - like redlining - and fight for racial justice and equality.

The above “definition” is inadequate, however. As the American Bar Association points out, CRT is not a noun but a verb:

>It cannot be confined to a static and narrow definition but is considered to be an evolving and malleable practice. It critiques how the social construction of race and institutionalized racism perpetuate a racial caste system that relegates people of color to the bottom tiers. CRT also recognizes that race intersects with other identities, including sexuality, gender identity, and others. CRT recognizes that racism is not a bygone relic of the past. Instead, it acknowledges that the legacy of slavery, segregation, and the imposition of second-class citizenship on Black Americans and other people of color continue t

Vent about some of the statements made by politicians about the Mysuru gang rape case.

The recent Mysuru gang rape incident that happened in Karnataka and some of the politicians' crude remarks about it is making me so angry. I mean FFS you are the lawmakers, the ones who should 'supposedly' lead by example, reassure people and make sure quick actions are taken in the time of crises. What tf are these morons blabbing being in positions of power?

The incident - Six men who gang-raped an MBA student at Chamundi foothills were in their late 20s and demanded Rs 3 lakh not to make public videos of the assault.

Politician 1 - Home Minister Araga Jnanendra says "Rape has happened there (in Mysuru), but the Congress was trying to rape me, they are trying to rape the Home Minister." Dafuq was he high or what when he made a public statement like that? A woman is raped and all he can think of is being targeted by the opposition and comparing that to rape? Did he have a brain injury or is he an imbecile by birth?

His stupidity doesn't stop there - "It is a deserted place, they should not have gone. But we can't stop anyone from going so they went. No one usually goes there as no one will be there." Right, so instead of doing something about safety, take the easy way out put the blame on public.

Politician 2 - Minister for Labour Shivaram Hebbar says “It is not that such incidents are taking place only when our party came to power." Dafuq he means? So it's okay that rape happens all the time? It's okay that the previous parties didn't do much and so the tradition should continue? They shouldn't be questioned?

Add to this, educational institute acting like wusses. Yes, the circular was later withdrawn. But people are watching. Please don't act like fools or spineless wimps who want to shake off any responsibility by taking an easy way out or run away when a crisis arises.

[59 Teams in 59 Days] Bentley Falcons

Bentley University

Atlantic Hockey Association


Year Founded: 1917, Bentley University since 2008 (originally founded as the Bentley School of Finance and Accounting)

Waltham, Massachusetts

Enrollment: 5,314 (4,228 undergraduate / 1,086 postgraduate and doctoral)

Total Attendance 2019-20: 25,636 (48th total; 1,282 average - 66.9% of capacity)

Nickname: Falcons. Sorry, they are NOT the Bentley Luxury Automobiles

Live Mascot: Flex the Falcon. A giant blue bird, Flex the Falcon can be seen here hanging out with the Bruins’ mascot or here hanging out with some fans. He also has an Instagram account (that I pulled these pictures from), @flexthefalcon.

Band: Bentley University’s website does not list a band on the student organization page of their website, and all social media accounts I found for Pep or Jazz bands are out of date by multiple years. Is there no music at Bentley games?!

Fight Song: Believe it or not, Bentley has no fight song. None. They do however have an Alma Mater, named “Proud Bentley, On Cedar Hill” written by W. J. O’Reilly in 1992 to honor the college’s 75th anniversary. The lyrics are

>Proud Bentley on Cedar Hill > >On high, as dreams we’ll fulfill, > >This day our thoughts find their way to you > >Our friends there, old friends and new > >In show or spring’s scent of green, > >Forget us not as we pass through time. > >We sing your praises true, Harry C., > >Whose deeds have made our futures ever brighter. > >Still I know, that your vision

>Leads on to glories yet untold. > >Soar on, proud falcon above > >Sail on to crest Cedar Hill > >And lead us back to the place we love.

Unsure of the melody, but at least you now have the lyrics. Someone should record themselves signing it as an example!

Arena: Bentley Arena. Seating a modest 1,917 people (per /u/lilbitspecial this number is intentional to match the year Bentley was founded), construction of Bentley Arena on campus was completed in 2018. The new arena was something Bentley fans and alumni had been wanting for years, as they used to play at an off-campus arena 10 minutes away in nearby Watertown.

[Television] Psychics, possessed grandmas and escaped convicts, the story of OTV, the most sensational channel on TV

Welcome to Romania, an Eastern European country filled with contradictions such as when the same group of politicians started an anti-gay referendum and when it failed they backed a pro-gay law right after or the fact that it's the most religious and superstitious country in Europe, while being one of its fastest rising economies at the same time

In 1989 after the fall of the Iron Curtain and the oppressive communist dictatorship, the Romanian people found themselves able to speak freely and combine this with superstition and poverty and you got a drama hungry populace that loves a good scandal. While in some countries those considered outrageous or immoral are not given any screentime, in Romania these people HAD to be on TV. Be it the mother who thought her son was Jesus Christ or the "porno dwarf", the people were glued to the screens ready for the next feud between angry football club owners or which celebrity managed to string together the funniest and most impressive profanity on live TV. Almost all talk shows had attractive, barely dressed female "tv assistants" and television producers were counting the money when the guests started fighting each other. Many comedy and satire shows popped up to mock these scandalous celebrities and while most people disliked these outrageous people, they just couldn't keep away from tuning in to the newest feud. And one man was about to give the people the content they were begging for.

Dan Diaconescu: King of Ratings

In 2000, journalist Dan Diaconescu founded the TV channel Oglinda (mirror) TV shortened to OTV, with it's most popular program being Dan Diaconescu Direct, a live, tabloid-type talk show that for the next decade will prove to be one of the most surreal and insane TV programs in the country and probably the world.

OTV presented the most sensational stories, and guests on live tv. Some real, many fake (hopefully), but OTV presented everything as 100% real and never came out to say they were scripted, unlike other Romanian TV programs that have to specify if what they do is real or fake. Some of the events that "entertained" a nation and brought in the ratings were (all links in Romanian, but OTV transcends the language barrier):

A J6 rally will be held on Capitol Grounds tomorrow. J6 organizers believe January 6 riot participants are political prisoners; and specifically those, charged with trespass should be set free. Only about 600 protestors are expected to attend. Is it likely to just fizzle out given the small size?

Justice for J6 is a slogan to express the belief that January 6 riots participants who were arrested and are being prosecuted are political prisoners; and that particularly, those charged with trespass, for January 6, event should be released. The protest was called by the right wing groups including some of those originally involved in the January 6, 2021 attacks.

Although FBI and others responsible for safeguarding and protecting the Capitol have warned of potential for violence, the organizers are claiming the protest will be peaceful. Some are even discouraging potential attendees from the march calling it a "set up the government" to arrest more protestors. Trump, who is generally held responsible for the January 6, 2021 event only said the Capitol riot suspects are being "persecuted so unfairly." Even the pro-far-right Republican politicians are not expected to speak at the rally.

Given the confusion surrounding the protest, lack of support from otherwise supportive politicians and the former chief organizer and president out of power. Is it possible and likely that there will not be much of a rally in D.C. tomorrow for J6, and just a fizzle?

Your 10-minute Friday recap in 2509 words.

##the "Nork Armed Group" trial resumes / 20 men accused of organizing armed rebellion in 2015

In 2015, the NSS announced that they uncovered a 20-member armed group in the Nork-Marash district. The NSS accused the alleged ringleader Arthur Vardanyan and his men of planning to down Serj Sargsyan's jet in mid-air, and storming major government and court buildings.

Among the co-defendants are a former (1992-1999) deputy Defense Minister Vahan Shirkhanyan and the Gyumri Catholic Church priest Anton Tigran Totonjyan. The trial started in 2016.

Defendant Vahan Shirkhanyan suffered a stroke last night. His lawyers asked for today's session to be held behind closed doors to disclose medical information. Shirkhanyan said he is showing signs of recovery. He has maintained innocence and was released pre-trial on the grounds of poor health in 2018, after the revolution.

A few weeks ago, one of the defendants won a lawsuit against NSS and police for violating his presumption of innocence and showing him semi-naked in a video.

The trial continues.

Education Ministry: the courses have already started as part of the university-private sector cooperation program, with 2.3k applicants. Those who pass the admission stage will receive free education in 16 technology fields.

The goal is to train 4.5k beginner and intermediate level professionals via online courses.

Azerbaijan's tourism committee announced plans to organize 3-hour trips to Akna (Aghdam) region. The priority will be given to those who formerly resided in those areas.

The news wasn't met with enthusiasm on social media. After decades of blaming Armenia for "one million refugees", Aliyev's "great return" promise has been apparently delayed.

Reporter Sahavat Mamed urged authorities "not to play with people's feelings like that. This is not a return to the homeland. This is a tourism campaign."

In 1994, Russia was shocked by the murder of a journalist Dmitry Kholodov. Why hirers and killers have not been found?

Dmitry Yuryevich Kholodov was a Russian journalist who investigated corruption in the military and was assassinated on 17 October 1994 in Moscow.

The murder of Dmitry Kholodov in 1994 was not just a massacre against the young journalist: his friends and colleagues are sure that it was a demonstrative execution. Anyone who has ever walked past the main entrance to the publishing house Moskovskij Komsomolets in Moscow on Ulitsa 1905 Goda must have seen a memorial plaque on the wall of the building. The inscription on the board reads: Dmitry Kholodov worked many flashpoints areas but died not in the war, but in Moscow, doing his job.

On the morning of October 17, an explosion thundered in one of the Moskovskij Komsomolets (a Moscow-based daily newspaper with a circulation approaching one million, covering general news. Founded in 1919, it is famed for its topical reporting on Russian politics and society) editorial offices. A trap-mine installed in the briefcase opened by Kholodov went off. In this briefcase, the journalist hoped to find some compromising evidence. What exactly remains a mystery, but it was most likely somehow connected with the Russian army.

Kholodov was interested in many topics, one way or another related to the activities of the Russian armed forces: the illegal sale of weapons to Chechnya, corruption in the Western Group of Forces, lawlessness in the army, and many others. A certain source, whose name remained unknown, told the journalist that the briefcase with the documents of interest to him was left in the storage room at the Kazansky railway station, the papers must be copied and the briefcase with the originals must be placed back before lunch.

It was 1994, there were no smartphones with a camera yet, and documents could be copied only at the editorial office. Dmitry answered the call on that fateful day, drove to the station, and took the briefcase from the storage room. He could hardly imagine that his ill-wishers would decide to deal with him, especially in this way. At that time in Moscow, there were high-profile commissioned crimes such as shootings or explosions of cars. But those events were part of a protracted war of gangs over spheres of influence. The killers have not yet been sent to politicians and journalists.

The explosive device went off in the office of Vadim Poegli, the chief of Kholodov. At that moment, in addition to Dmitry, the journalist Yekaterina Deeva was in the room; she also received several shra

Full text- NYT article "Everyone Is On the List"- Fear Grips Nicaragua as It Veers to Dictatorship

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/05/world/nicaragua-political-repression.html

Written by Anatoly Kurmanaev, the NYT journalist who was barred from entering Nicaragua in June by Sandinista government officials, and two Nicaraguan journalists, Yubelka Mendoza and Alfonso Flores Bermudez.

MANAGUA, Nicaragua — The nights were the hardest.

From the moment Medardo Mairena decided to run for president, in direct challenge to Nicaragua’s authoritarian leader, he was certain the security apparatus would eventually come for him.

Over the summer, he watched as other opposition leaders disappeared. One by one, they were dragged from their homes amid a nationwide crackdown on dissent by the president, Daniel Ortega, whose quest to secure a fourth term had plunged the Central American nation into a state of pervasive fear.

Since June, the police have jailed or put under house arrest seven candidates for November’s presidential election and dozens of political activists and civil society leaders, leaving Mr. Ortega running on a ballot devoid of any credible challenger and turning Nicaragua into a police state.

Mr. Mairena himself was banned from leaving Managua. Police patrols outside his house had scared away nearly all visitors, even his family.

During the day, Mr. Mairena kept busy, campaigning over Zoom and scanning official radio announcements for clues to the growing repression. But at night he lay awake, listening for sirens, certain that sooner or later the police would come and he would disappear into a prison cell.

“The first thing I ask myself in the morning is, when are they coming for me?” Mr. Mairena, a farmers’ rights activist, said in a telephone interview in late June. “It’s a life in constant dread.”

His turn came just days after the call. Heavily armed officers raided his home and took him away late on July 5.

He had not been heard from until last Wednesday, when relatives were allowed one brief visit. They said they found him emaciated and sick, completely disconnected from the outside world.

Government critics say the unpredictability and speed of the wave of arrests have turned Nicaragua into a more repressive state than it was during the early years of the dictatorship of Anastasio Somoza, who was overthrown in 1979 by the Sandinista Revolutionary Movement led by Mr. Ortega and several other commanders. The Sandinistas governed the country until losing democratic elections and ceding power in 1990. In 2007, Mr. Ortega returned as presid

Regarding the possible Lawsuit and the Ape Fest, don't fall for their tactics

Out of nowhere comes Chad080914

I’ve been melting my brain the entire night trying to figure out what’s the strangest thing, because I do not trust him.

So, put your tinfoil hat and let’s take a look at a few points:

  1. His twitter account was created this month. Yep! You got it, 2021/July;
  2. It’s very suspicious to me, that someone like him came out of nowhere asking a GoFundMe to “help the apes make an investigation”. I don’t believe that someone that can afford $500 Burberry Shirts need financial help, most of us are hard workers and would never spend that much in clothes, but suits in Wall Street do love Brands;

  1. During his interview he proclaimed that he wants to “lead the apes” to bring justice. We don’t have a leader, we are individual investors that like either GME or AMC stock.

We have some smart people here, can someone read his facial expressions? To me, it seems his is faking his emotions just likely a politician would do.

The so called Ape Fest

This is the dumbest idea I’ve ever seen, seriously?

A party? For what? We have nothing to party, but they do!

We are fighting the big guys and oh boy, they are in desperation mode. But never underestimate them, they work with big data and they would do anything to get as much information as possible about each one of us.

How can you do this? Well, call a party, make a lot of people check in hotels in the same city and get them at the same place. There you go, easy as taking candies from a kid.

I don’t know about you guys, but we are at a point of no return for them and everyone should be careful, just remember what they did during the 2008 crash. We are fighting sociopaths.

They will collect as much data as possible, but from who?

If I were a Hedge Fund, my first step would try to make some of us “leaders” and then begin attacking with the media calling a pump and dump scheme. (cough cough Jim Crammer did this).

Australian Comedian Silenced by counter terrorism unit for revealing local politicians corruption

How John Barilaro raises campaign funds. #koalakiller #bruz #stupidfatidiot

So this is a thread a friend posted in r/Journalism which is both hilarious and disturbing. Its odd, funny and dark in equal measure. It starts with memes like the one above and ends in counter-terrorism police arresting a journalist/comedian for mocking a politician. Well worth your time.OG post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Journalism/comments/o1no5j/australian_journalist_targeted_by_counter/

CopyPasta:

So this is a story I think people in the field of journalism should find shocking. It raises the question of how free western media truly is. It starts with a comedian who does good journalism mocking a corrupt ("allegedly", but again I say that in quotations because there is a lot of evidence for this alleged corruption) and ends with the deployment of a counter-terrorism unit. At the same time is is absolutely hilarious until a recent dark turn. If you care about free speech, journalistic freedom or koalas you may find this of interest. If you want to cut to the chase here is a video depicting the use of police to gag a western journalist while attacking his mother and dog. (WARNING THIS IS DISTURBING): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXtq4a8829g&t

If you want some context as to why a man in a Luigi suit appeared in that video read on. This will be long but worth your time, even if you are not Australian. So for some context FriendlyJordies is a comedic youtube channel which covers Australian politics recently they have been is a very long spat with the Deputy Premier of New South Wales (NSW). NSW is the Australian state with the largest economy in the country also the state where its federal political body governs from. The host of FreindlyJordies, Jordan Shanks has been attacking John Barilaro for corruption and oh boy does Mr. Shanks have a lot of ammunition for these accusations. One example I personally find shocking it Mr. Barilaro using bushfire relief money to fund local election campaigns for Liberal seats (the Australian center-right conservative party).

The Mockery of BLM

TL;DR: Yes, there is absolutely a widespread radical Marxist master narrative of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. that predicts doom—from the founders at the top to individual state-level leadership. I do not dispute the facts, of course—shame on those who do. I dispute the attitude, the misanthropy, the indictment of progress and humanism—all the senseless hustle and brutality serving some 'higher purpose.'

American politicians and media conglomerates that own and influence popular culture—film, television, music, radio, books, news and entertainment magazines, independent publishers, Broadway theatre—stand behind people who describe themselves as radically 'trained Marxists.' Thanks to a dire and defeatist mental agitation, I worry whether our species even deserves to survive. We feel 'empowered' by what we have come to know about the balance of 'personal liberties' to 'fair privilege opportunities'—we are also 'guilty' of crimes against each other. In a crisis of these dimensions, misanthropy becomes a fatal spiritual temptation. Radical Marxists wish to 'shake us awake,' but the language they commonly use fosters only despair and disengagement.

I would urge sane people to recognize and reject self-proclaimed Marxists and ignore their grandiose impulses. Our past should have taught us by now that the 'goals' of such 'revolutionaries' want to dismantle built-up systems and protections—marshaling the forces of malevolence and incompetence—to rule and exploit people under their system—calling for apocalyptic 'change.'—has a long and unappetizing history.

Slave society brought about an end to tribal society, the contradictions of slave society resulted in the creation of feudalism—the contradictions in feudalism resulted in the rising merchant class to collaborate with the proletariat to overthrow the monarchy—thus the birth of capitalist republics, and so a similar set of contradictions in Capitalism will result in theoretical ideas of utopia—in reforming free-market Capitalism—but its a fact that Capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty and improved living, health, sanitation, nutrition standards than any other ideology. I urge sane people to look at the growth and prosperity of former Socialist and Communist countries after embracing free-market Capitalism. Not just economic—health, education, social development which has reached to people once Capitalism was welcomed.

Australia - Envy of the World or Dystopian Purgatory?

"We Have Reestablished Our Prison Island Heritage"

Originally Published at Nevermore.media

by Markus Sprig

As covid continues its inevitable spread across the globe, Australia remains a poster child for lockdown proponents. An isolated island continent with a mild climate, car dependent suburbanised population, and penchant for militaristic border control, Australia holds innate the conditions for pandemic management shared by few other places.

With its borders sealed and strict lockdowns, Australia all but eliminated covid. A fact that emboldened health authorities around the world to insist that if Australia could do it, so could you. Armed with flawed mathematical models and the fallacious post hoc evidence that A is the cause of B because B occurred after A, lockdown enthusiasts helped the “Australian approach” go viral among health policy makers. Despite growing evidence to the contrary, if your country’s lockdowns weren’t working, Australia had the answer; lockdown harder.

If measures for success relate only to the number of days without lockdowns and low covid cases/deaths per million, Australia is doing very well indeed. In most parts of the country you can usually go to restaurants and bars, concerts, and large scale sports events, and freely associate with others. I was in a full theatre yesterday without a mask in sight. Knowing anyone who has had covid is rare. Knowing someone impacted by a covid death; almost unheard of. In most places, masks are not required and very rarely worn. For those suffering under strict lockdowns in other parts of the world such a situation probably sounds heavenly. Our politicians make sure to remind us; we’re the “envy of the world”. At least that is, until we’re not.

As I write, covid has once again breached the walls of fortress Australia. Residents of Melbourne, last year tormented for more than three months under one of the world’s strictest lockdowns, were again confined to their homes. Much of Sydney is currently living under growing levels of house arrest and my city of Brisbane is primed to do the same. Australia’s “aggressive suppression” strategy relies on being able to trace and isolate small numbers of cases before they can spread. O

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The idea of India has been constructed through push and pull, in which old and new, ancient and modern, traditional and contemporary are constantly rubbing up against each other, making room – adjusting – in an endless, eternal dance.

We sing, with equal passion and gusto, “saare jahan se achcha Hindustan hamara” and “jinhe naaz hai Hind par who kahaan hain”. Optimism, deep nihilism. We thrive on contradiction. Long live the argumentative Indian!

Ancient Bharat’s journey to modern India is ongoing. Seventy-five years after Independence, we still live in a million Indias, where a million mutinies brew and spark every day. So many bewildering diversities, each state a nation unto itself with its distinct language and culture, all of which make India such a glorious, enduring puzzle. Underneath those differences is a tensile mesh, unimaginably strong, which holds this heaving mass together.

When India was being cobbled together from the fragments of the resentful rajwadas was when it began grappling with the twin forces that would always dominate its narrative – a small section that would enthusiastically espouse the newly enshrined Constitution’s liberal, secular, democratic principles, and another which was invested in maintaining status quo of caste, creed, gender. That minority today is shrinking even more; the majority, pushing its polarising views, is spreading its wings.

Cinema, after Independence, had begun by radiating promise, but already by the end of the ’50s, the patina of betrayal was starting to show. Clearly, Nehruvian socialism was failing, and the gap between the haves and have nots was not going to close any time soon, if ever. Affluence was growing only in urban pockets. When Satyajit Ray featured Indians and their villages, he was mocked for showing the country in “a bad light” – the incredible, indelible beauty of Pather Panchali has had a hard time facing down those spurious charges of “glorifying poverty”.

[OC] Nobody Roots for Goliath: Wilt Chamberlain's Forgotten Role as the NBA's First Villain

r/nba wouldn't let me post this for some reason, so I'm putting it over here:

Wilt Chamberlain's career is best remembered today for three reasons: his legendary 100-point performance in Hershey, PA (accompanied by an iconic photo), his gaudy MyCareer-tier statlines, and stories of physical prowess on and off the court that blur the line between man and myth (for example, Wilt's self-purported claim that he slept with 20,000 different women).

One thing that's frequently left out of Wilt discussions, though, is how hated the superstar center was. Chamberlain attained a truly transcendent level of dislike across the league, near-universal hatred that would make LeBron's Twitter replies seem like the comment section on a Luka highlight. Teammates, opponents, coaches, journalists, fans (including those of Wilt's own teams), fighters, politicians, and the general public all found reasons to despise Chamberlain before, during, and after his 15-year NBA career.

By the end of his life, Wilt grew bitter with the hate he continued to receive. Speaking with Ann Liguori for her Sports Innerview series in 1992, 56 years old and decades removed from his NBA career, he acknowledged spending his life as a lightning rod for controversy: “They cast me as the villain everywhere I went,” he said. “Villains are kind of hard to know on a personal level. You see them as mean, insensitive-type people. Also when you have this great size, sensitivity once again is not given to you.”

In that interview with with Liguori, Wilt blamed his overwhelming size — 7'1 and 250 pounds as an NBA rookie — for the ire he attracted. But to accept that as statement of fact would be disingenuous; a full accounting of his public statements and actions makes it impossible not to conclude that Chamberlain had a penchant for stoking the flames of controversy. For example, Wilt's famous 20,000-different-women claim, nowadays remembered as one of many myths surrounding the mercurial center, carried very different context when he announced it in the middle of the AIDS crisis just after Magic Johnson shared that he had contracted the virus.

Below are a collection of various criticisms and conflicts during Wilt's career. Whether or not

Bangladesh High Court Ordered To Ban "Dangerous" Games like PUBG, Free Fire and Other Games. Tiktok, Bigo Live and Likee social media apps also might be banned.

Here is a link to an article.

Here is the link to the most illogical and stupid news report on why video games should be banned

Here is a quote from the Dhaka tribune article:

>The court also issued a ruling asking why such online games and social media-based mobile apps should not be banned from the country’s online space.

Why are they not asking why Such productive, Amazing potention of Esports Online games should be banned? This is ridiculous! These games are what made video gaming so popular in this country. There so much potential for online Bangladesh esports community and gaming but boomers who know nothing about these video games as source of entertainment. These dumbass boomers think banning anything and everything is gonna make you leave your phone and go outside. Wait till you hear more bullshit from these old hags. Remember When they were proud of Bangladesh A1 Esports?

>In the petition, the lawyers said that the country’s youths and adolescents are becoming addicted to online games such as PUBG and Free Fire, and various online platforms like TikTok, Likee and Bigo Live.

>They, terming the trend “alarming,” highlighted the adverse effects of such mobile applications on the younger generations and also shed light on the opportunities they provide for criminal activities.

So they have problem that people are spending enjoying something? Oh no we can't do that!

THIS IS NOT VIDEO GAME'S FAULT. If your child is addicted to their phone and video games, then why did you provide them with such devices in the first place? In this day and age, no one can go out a day without the internet or a mobile device, if you are concerned about the usage of their phone there are great services that monitor, regulate and prevent your child from using the phone from no longer than the time you give them. Just because your are not a good parent doesn't mean that you should take away everyone's right of entertainment. Be a good parent and monitor your child's device. Don't complain about video games. You don't want your child to go get addicted to Gaza and baba right? What do you do? You prevent him from going near the people who supply him with drugs. You don't go pickup a gun and shoot the suppliers. That's why you should prevent your child from accessing these games. Now man

[Bollywood] An actor dies of suicide. A media circus, cult-ish behaviour, conspiracy theories and a witch hunt follows.

[warnings: multiple mentions of suicide, 1 mention of rape]

Sushant Singh Rajput was a Bollywood actor best known for his roles in a number of commercially successful Hindi films such as MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Chichhore and Kedarnath. He was also a three-time nominee for the Filmfare awards, one of the most prestigious film events in India. Despite only acting in about 16 films, he had his own loyal following of fans and was generally considered a familiar face in the Hindi film industry.

June 14, 2020

On the 14th of June, 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his apartment at Bandra, Mumbai. The Mumbai Police ruled his death as a suicide, and his postmortem reports confirmed this, detailing his cause of death as ‘asphyxia due to hanging’.

Several prominent figures, including the Prime Minister, expressed their shock at his passing. Some emphasised the need of bringing about more awareness to mental health issues like depression in Indian society. Prominent TV news outlets like Republic TV and Times Now also covered the news.

A BRIEF OVERVIEW:

Before I get into the conspiracy theories, cult-ish behaviour and the media circus that surrounded this case, I want to provide a brief overview of everything that happened following Sushant’s death so that everything else is easier to follow.

After June 14th

In the days following his death, people connected to Sushant were summoned to record their statements to the Mumbai Police. During this time, calls for the investigation to be transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), India’s top investigative agency, gained prominence on social media.

On July 28 2020, [Sushant’s father filed a case](https://indianexpress.com/article/india/sushant-singh-rajputs-death-case-fir-filed-against-rhea-chakraborty-6527871/#:~:text=ACTOR%20SU

Conspiracy theory: Israel sold Pegasus spyware to Saudi Arabia (to chop up Khasoggi) but did not stop child trafficker Epstein because Epstein was blackmailing politicians on behalf of MOSSAD.

You all know saudi king hacked jamal khasoggi's phone, then hacked him into pieces in the embassy. the words were on the street that saudis bought bleeding edge CIA tech. there were many conspiracy theories.

but now, there is a washington post/amnesty report that israeli spyware company nso group sold spywares to many countries including saudi arabia and rwanda. saudis hacked jamal khasoggi's girlfriend and mother's phones.

Jeff Bezos, the biggest tech billionaire, claims that saudi prince Mohammed bin Salman blackmailed him and hacked his phone to leak his naked photos, because apparently prince MBS hated the fact that washington post is criticizing MBS for chopping up khasoggi. WAPO is owned by bezos.

Question arises, why many presidents and journalists including president macron, merkel, mexican president. journalists from NYT, WAPO, CNN and many others are being hacked.

however they never seem to hack executives from federal reserve bank. federal reserve has lots of money and saudis and israelis want the funding. why didn't they hack federal reserve?

They never seem to hack child traffickers phone? maybe they are into child sex trafficking and they don't want to hack themselves.

Where is jan merselek? tech billionaire, senior executive of fruad wirecard company. possible stasi agent. why can't they hack into his phone? he just disappears?

also, isn't there a systemic problem? why would israel give the tech to other countries? they should have said 'give us a billion dollar for each phone number you want to hack'?

how does NSO group know that saudis won't ever hack into israeli central bank? how does saudis know israel won't hack into pipelines? something fishy is going on.

==============================

Is any survivor from USS Liberty being tracked by pegasus spyware? conspiracy theorists suggest some survivors say israel deliberately 'false flagged' the ship by painting it like egyptian planes or something?

Why couldn't FBI find evidence against Epstein? they can't find his phone number? just use pegasus?

What does it mean with 'epstein belongs with intelligence'?

Why arresting g. maxwell took so long? Why does FBI have to follow maxwell for years? Why didn't they use pegasus?

Eric weinstein claims robert maxwell has two other daughters working for encryption and security companies. Are they involved in spyware or backdoor creation?

Where is robert maxwell's money? did he have any money or was it mossad slush fund

Hate Watching: Getting to know the anti-LGBTQ+ groups across the world. Episode 2: The Family Research Council

Have you ever wondered who is behind the anti-trans laws in the United States?

Do you ever wonder what groups are behind the bills targeting the LGBTQ+ community as a whole across the world, preventing LGBTQ+ people from accessing affordable housing, adoption agencies, & access to education?

Well, you are now in luck!

I am beginning a series known as Hate Watching.

These posts are going to highlight the many groups that are behind the multitude of anti-LGBTQ+ hate bills, the Slate of Hate bills in states like Arkansas, Tennessee, & Texas, and who is funding the many lawmakers that openly target us as an LGBTQ+ community.

We are going to do a deep dive into the Family Research Council, learning the group of people who are behind this militant group.​

Note: I do not attack anyone's religious faith or anyone's spirituality whenever I create these posts. These posts are not meant to act as a hate thread on religion in any way. I know not all religious people agree with these groups, and I want to keep the attention heightened to these groups and the power & influence they wield in order to expose their virulent bigotry. So, please leave the anti-religion comments to the side and only keep the anger directed at these groups, if you would please.

Now, without further ado, I present to you Hate Watch!

The Family Research Council

Let's do a background check on the Family Research Council & its leader Tony Perkins.

This guy is far from the Ben Stiller Heavyweight Tony Perkins. Somehow, he is even worse than that.

So, is the Family Research Council.

Now, who is the Family Research Council (FRC)?

According to Wikipedia and its own website,

FRC was formed in the United States in 1981 by James Dobson and incorporated in 1983.

[5] In 1988, following financial difficulties, FRC was incorporated into Focus on the Family, and Gary Bauer joined the organization as president.

FBI finds 'scant evidence' that Jan. 6 Capitol riot was 'centrally coordinated'

By Libby Emmons Brooklyn, NY August 20, 2021 9:31 AM 2 Mins Reading

After arresting and holding more than 500 people in connection with the riot at the Capitol Building in Washington, DC on Jan. 6, the FBI "has found scant evidence" to suggest that the events that unfolded that day were "the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result," Reuters exclusively reported on Friday.

In all, 570 people were arrested on charges, but the FBI now believes that the unrest that occurred that day was not "centrally coordinated." It was the assumption that it was a coordinated, planned attack that led Democrats in Congress to seek to impeach then-President Donald Trump, even as he was peacefully on his way out of the White House. Trump was later acquitted.

Conspiracy charges were filed against 40 of the 570 defendants who are held on allegations that they participated in the events of Jan. 6. Most of the charges against protestors from that day have been trespassing charges. There have been very few arms charges or charges of assault.

A grandmother from Indiana was the first to be sentenced. Anna Morgan-Looyd, 49, said of her experience on that day: "Where I was at we seen nobody damage anything," she said, indicating other Trump supporters said "excuse me" when accidentally bumping into one another.

"Nobody was breaking anything and it was calm enough that people were walking out of the Capitol building that worked there, walked right past this and they had no fear on their face at all," Morgan-Lloyd said.

Morgan-Lloyd's was sentence to three years probation, $500 in restitution and 40 hours of community service. She is also prohibited from purchasing a firearm.

Prosecutors have been unable to lay more serious charges. Though they appeared ready to charge protestors with "seditious conspiracy or racketeering," there just wasn't any way to do it given the overwhelming lack of evidence.

Reuters reported that the FBI "did find that cells of protesters, including followers of the far-right Oath Keepers and Proud Boys groups, had aimed to break into the Capitol. But they found no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside, the sources said."

Reuters reported that a source, a senior law enforcement official who has a familiarity with the investigation into the Capitol riot, said that "Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases. Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups
