2020.09.22 00:46 Lonestar767 “You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”

An increasingly number of people are waking up to the fact that 99% of the Earth’s population is controlled by an elite 1% – but did you know that one family, the Rothschilds, rule everything, even that elite 1%?
📷
Behind the scenes the Rothschild dynasty is unquestionably the most powerful bloodline on Earth and their estimated wealth is around $500 trillion.
Here is a complete list of all Rothschild owned and controlled banks. The U.S. entries might surprise you.

Humansarefree reports:
The Fed and the IRS
Virtually unknown to the general public is the fact that the US Federal Reserve is a privately owned company, siting on its very own patch of land, immune to the US laws.
📷
This privately owned company (controlled by the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Morgans) prints the money FOR the US Government, which pays them interest for the “favor.” This means that if we would reset the nation’s debt today and would begin reprinting money, we would be in debt to the FED from the very first dollar loaned to our Government.
Also, most people living in the USA have no clue that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a foreign agency.
To be more accurate, the IRS is a foreign private corporation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the private “army” of the Federal Reserve (Fed).
Its main goal is to make sure the American people pay their tax and be good little slaves.
In 1835, US President Andrew Jackson declared his disdain for the international bankers:
You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”
There followed an (unsuccessful) assassination attempt on President Jackson’s life. Jackson had told his vice president, Martin Van Buren:
The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me.
This was the beginning of a pattern of intrigue that would plague the White House itself over the coming decades. Both Lincoln and JFK have been murdered for trying to rid the country of banksters.
The world’s Megabanks
There are two Megabanks that offer loans to all the countries around the planet, the World Bank and the IMF. The first one is jointly owned by the world’s top banking families, with the Rothschilds at the very top, while the second one is privately owned by the Rothschilds alone.
These two Megabanks offer loans to “developing countries” and use their almost impossible-to-pay-back interests to get their hands on the real wealth: land and precious metals.
📷
But that’s not all! An important part of their plan is to also exploit a country’s natural resources (like petrol or gas) via their covertly-owned companies, refine them, and sell them back to the same country, making a huge profit.
But in order for these companies to operate optimally, they need a solid infrastructure, which is usually lacking in the so called “developing countries.” So before the banksters even offer the almost impossible-to-pay-back loans, they make sure that most of the money will be invested in — you’ve guessed it — infrastructure.
These “negotiations” are carried out by the so called “Economic Hitmen”, who succeed by handsomely rewarding (i.e. bribing) or threatening with death those who are in the position to sell away their country.
For more information on the subject, I suggest reading the Confessions of an Economic Hitman.
The one bank that rules them all, the “Bank for International Settlement,” is — obviously — controlled by the Rothschilds and it is nicknamed the “Tower of Basel.”
The true power of the Rothschilds goes FAR beyond the Banking Empire
If you are not yet amazed by the power of the Rothschilds (I know you are), please know that they are also behind all wars since Napoleon. That’s when they’ve discovered just how profitable it is to finance both sides of a war and they’ve been doing it ever since.
In 1849, Guttle Schnapper, the wife of Mayer Amschel stated:
If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”
So, the world is still at war because it is very, very profitable to the Rothschilds and their parasite bankster bloodlines. And for as long as we will continue to use money, the world will never know peace.
It is shocking for many to find out that the United States of America is a corporation ruled from abroad. Its original name was the Virginia Company and it was owned by the British Crown (it should not be mistaken for the Queen, which functions largely in a ceremonial capacity only).
The British Crown donated the company to the Vatican, which gave the exploitation rights back to the Crown. The US Presidents are appointed CEOs and their business is to make money for the British Crown and the Vatican, who take their share of the profits every year.
The British Crown covertly rules the world from the 677-acre, independent sovereign state, know as The City of London. This other Crown is comprised of a committee of 12 banks headed by the Bank of England. Guess who is controlling the Bank of England? Yup, the Rothschilds!
In 1815, Nathan Mayer made the following statement:
I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
The House of Rothschild is really at the top of the pyramid of power. They are behind the New World Order and the complete domination of the world agenda. They are behind the European Union and the Euro and they are behind the idea of a North American Union and the Amero. They are controlling all of the world’s secret services and their private army is NATO.

2020.09.20 04:51 Evening_Honey Should Israel be concerned about this specific lunar eclipse?

"The Talmud tells us that a lunar eclipse is considered a bad sign for the Jews, who calculate the months according to the lunar cycle.

For thus says the L‑rd, ‘Do not be frightened by the signs of the heavens.’” 10 Classic Jewish Teachings About the Moon
Donald Trump was born June 14, 1946 during a lunar eclipse that would have been seen rising on the horizon from Jerusalem, aka God's appointed holy land.

2020.09.19 06:25 Maximum-Lingonberry2 Do I sound more like a Democrat or Republican?

Here are my positions -
  1. Should the federal government institute a mandatory buyback of assault weapons? No
  2. Should a business be able to deny service to a customer if the request conflicts with the owner’s religious beliefs? If they are not engaged in interstate commerce, the Federal Government shouldn't hold any power to legislate on the matter. At the state level (and federal if interstate) Yes, so long as they are not discriminating on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, transgender, or other uncontrollable factors.

  18. Should there be fewer or more restrictions on current welfare benefits? More, reform it so it supplements, rather than replaces, an income.
  19. Should the government raise the federal minimum wage? The federal government should not have the power to enact minimum wage laws unless it involves interstate commerce, in which case yes, it should be $15 an hour. Each state should be able to set its own laws on the matter.

  47. Should there be more restrictions on the current process of purchasing a gun? States and the federal government should not be allowed to enact any restrictions on black powder weapons or ammunition for them. For cartridge firearms, the federal government should only have the power to regulate interstate sale of them. At the state level, cartridge firearms should require a license to obtain. The process should involve passing a mental and physical health exam, having a decent criminal record, and passing a written and shooting exam. Handguns and centerfire semi-automatic weapons should have higher standards for licensing and should be registered before being obtained, but automatic CCW to anyone who has a license for a handgun. fully automatic weapons should be illegal to sell, except to collectors, who must meet an even higher standard to obtain.

  55. Are you in favor of decriminalizing drug use? Yes, for most but not all drugs (basically the really bad ones, e.g., meth, heroin, etc;)
  56. Should the NSA (National Security Agency) be allowed to collect basic metadata of citizen’s phone calls such as numbers, timestamps, and call durations? Only with a warrant and probable cause of a crime.
  57. Should the Supreme Court be reformed to include more seats and term limits on judges? No, this is just trying to pack the court, which should not be politicized.
  58. Should the government regulate social media sites, as a means to prevent fake news and misinformation? No, this violates free speech.
  59. Do you support the Patriot Act? Not the clause that allows warrantless searches.
  60. Should the government be allowed to seize private property, with reasonable compensation, for public or civic use? Only for public land and not for privatization, and the owner must be paid for losses in full.
  61. Should college sports be played in the fall of 2020? Yes, but let teams decide.

  73. Should the military fly drones over foreign countries to gain intelligence and kill suspected terrorists? No, unless said country has approved it, and American citizens should be given fair trials.
  74. Should the military be allowed to use enhanced interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, to gain information from suspected terrorists? No.
  75. Should every 18 year old citizen be required to provide at least one year of military service? No, but maintain the Selective Service system and allow states to draft people if necessary.

Here are my positions -
  1. Should the federal government institute a mandatory buyback of assault weapons? No
  2. Should a business be able to deny service to a customer if the request conflicts with the owner’s religious beliefs? If they are not engaged in interstate commerce, the Federal Government shouldn't hold any power to legislate on the matter. At the state level (and federal if interstate) Yes, so long as they are not discriminating on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, transgender, or other uncontrollable factors.
  3. Should the government continue to fund Planned Parenthood? Yes, with oversight to make sure the money is going o where it is supposed to.

  47. Should there be more restrictions on the current process of purchasing a gun? States and the federal government should not be allowed to enact any restrictions on black powder weapons or ammunition for them. For cartridge firearms, the federal government should only have the power to regulate interstate sale of them. At the state level, cartridge firearms should require a license to obtain. The process should involve passing a mental and physical health exam, having a decent criminal record, and passing a written and shooting exam.

2020.09.18 15:26 KurdistanNewsMod How free is Jordan, really?

As America supports Jordan; how much of a beacon of freedom and democracy is Jordan?
Would you be arrested in Jordan for insulting Saudi Arabia or their government?
Would this exact post warrent prison time in Gulf countries, because it questions the country?
Am I being a "bad boy" for not kissing the flag of Israel? I've heard Gulf countries use Israeli technology to arrest thought-criminals through Facebook too.
Or did the GCC spend too much money in Yemen to be able to proceed with thought-criminals?
Would you be arrested for having a t-shirt or flag that was Iranian in Gulf countries?

Would this exact post warrent prison time in Gulf countries? What about in Kuwait or Jordan or Egypt? Am I being a "bad boy" for not kissing the flag of Israel?

2020.09.17 23:18 LiabilityFree Stuff

Here are some that I like. By no means an exhaustive list:
QQQ - This one uses the NASDAQ 100 as its benchmark. Obviously it's an Indexed, non-managed ETF. XTF used to rate this one as a perfect 10.0 out of 10 rating, but recently dropped it to 9.9 out of 10. It has one of the highest rates of return over the past 10 years of any ETF. It does tend to be tech-heavy, especially with the FAANG +M stocks. (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google and Microsoft). Other top holdings include TSLA, NVDA and ADBE. (The rating dropped recently when the portfolio of the NASDAQ 100 was re-balanced).
VXUS - Vanguard Total International Index Fund ETF - top holdings include BABA, Tencent, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductors, Novartis, Toyota. This is a broad market fund investing only in companies overseas. I'm not generally bullish on foreign markets, but this one is a very solid ETF with some companies that are likely to do extremely well for the foreseeable future. XTF rates this one a perfect 10.0 out of 10.
VOO/SPY - VOO and SPY are non-managed funds indexed to the S&P 500 Index. These funds are very popular on this subreddit, for good reason. They are well diversified, broad market funds investing in mostly US stocks. XTF rates these funds at 9.6 out of 10 because their return on investment over the long term is somewhat tempered by some of the blue chip stocks in the funds. But those stocks also help reduce volatility relative to some other ETFs. These are solid investments, but keep in mind that in the top 10 holdings there will be a lot of crossover between these funds and other broad market funds that hold US stocks like QQQ, VTI, VTG, VOOG and SPYG. There are differences, of course, as well, but you always want to know where those duplications exist.
IWF - This is a Russell 1000 indexed fund. It is one of my favorites that doesn't get talked about much. It does have a lot of crossover with the other funds mentioned above, but the mix is slightly different. I would describe this fund as more aggressive than VOO/SPY, less volatile than QQQ.
IWM - for someone looking to diversify a little bit, this is a great fund to look into. This fund is a non-managed, indexed fund that uses the Russell 2000 index as its benchmark. The big difference between the Russell 2000 index and many of the the other indexes is that the Russell 2000 index looks at small and mid-cap companies, rather than large-cap companies. Thus, there is zero crossover between this one and the funds mentioned above. While this fund will move up and down with the market, it is often less volatile than the market overall. If you look at the charts, this fund has under-performed some of the other funds over the past few months while the market has been very volatile in an upward direction, but in a crash, this fund would probably outperform the rest of the market. It has a 9.0/10 XTF rating.
There are also some sector funds you may want to look at:
ICLN/TAN/FAN - These funds are clean/renewable energy ETFs. ICLN is more broad while TAN focuses more specifically on solar energy and FAN specifically on wind generated energy. I think renewable energy companies are the future. There is no crossover in the top holdings of this fund with the top holdings of QQQ and most of the other broad market funds. Also, these are global, not just US based companies. QCLN and PBW are also renewable energy funds, but they also contain a lot of TSLA, NIO and W.K. H.S. in their top holdings making them "electric vehicle" funds, as well. No problem if you want to add that, but you'll find a lot of Tesla in some of the funds mentioned above.
ARK group of funds: ARKG, ARKF, ARKK ARKW, ARKQ, PRNT and IZRL. These are managed funds investing in companies that invest in disruptive companies in their respective industries. Most posters on this subreddit are bullish on these funds. They are aggressive growth ETFs, but should be considered somewhat risky and volatile.
• ⁠ARKG - Genomic Revolution • ⁠ARKF - Fintech • ⁠ARKK - Disruptive Companies (broader market) • ⁠ARKW - Internet/computetechnology (Telsa is a top holding) • ⁠ARKQ - Robotics and artificial intelligence • ⁠PRNT - 3D printing technology • ⁠IZRL - disruptive companies based in Israel
XL series of funds. Similar to the ARK series, these tend to be more aggressive growth funds, however these are passively managed indexed funds with various benchmarks that usually are overloaded in the better companies within a sector:
• ⁠XLV - Health Care • ⁠XLK - Technology • ⁠XLY - Consumer Discretionary • ⁠XLF - Financial • ⁠XLU - Utilities
A nice portfolio might look something like this:
20% - Broad market US fund such as QQQ, VOO or IWF
20% - VXUS - International
20% - IWM - Small/Mid-cap broad market fund
10% each in four sector funds of your choice

"The Talmud tells us that a lunar eclipse is considered a bad sign for the Jews, who calculate the months according to the lunar cycle.

2020.09.17 19:30 Ok_Addendum_7687 My friend’s wife is a racist and making threats. What do I do?

I have a close friend that I’ve known since the 6th grade. His wife recently asked to be my friend on Facebook and also to donate $5 to her Bible trip to the Israel. I accepted and gave her $200. But now that I’m her friend on Facebook, I see she is deeply racist. Not only does she constantly degrade African Americans, she also belittles and threatens Democrats with violence immediately followed by biblical quotes.
Months of this go by and one day she claimed “Leftists are Nazis”. For the first time I left a comment. I put “Trumpers” and shared articles and photos of MAGA supports waiving Nazi flags, giving Nazi Salutes ect. For example: https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5f1da4d8c5b69fd4730dc9d2 I did this as kind of a “troll” joke not really expecting backlash.
His wife (I believe) reported me, claiming “I was spreading hate messages / supporting Nazis.” And I received a ban. I’ve had Facebook for 12 years and they banned me for sharing Articles / photographic proof of Trump supporters supporting Nazis.
Below are just A FEW quotes from his Wife’s page in just the past 30 days.
“Democrats are wicked animals. We need to send these beasts to hell”
“Every single Democrat deserves the death penalty. They aren’t humans. They’re animals.”
“Democrats need to abort themselves.” “There is a special place in hell for Democrats.”
“Black Americans are the biggest racists in this country”
“BLM are Nazis their lives do not matter.”
“Black Lives Matter and Antifa are savages.”
“Blacks Lives Matter is a terrorist organization. We need to deal with them like we dealt with ISIS. It’s time we purge these savages from our great country.”
I was pretty upset about the ban so I reported some of her posts to Facebook and yet Facebook refuses to do anything about it. Somehow her posts it doesn’t go against “one of the specific Community Standards.”
Facebook reports are anonymous so I don’t think he or his wife know I reported the posts but I can tell that my long term friendship is strained. We use to hang out everyday playing Video Games and now he will not even react to memes or game invites. Again I’ve known this person for ~20 years. He’s been a very close friend of mine and I don’t want to lose a good friendship. He is nothing like his wife, he is a good person. He is NOT a racist and he was even a democrat growing up. I do however think he does what his wife tells him to and that to me is worrying given her calls or violence and the fact they are both avid gun lovers owning semi-automatic rifles. I never knew this side of her until she added me on Facebook. I want to do something about her posts because they are dangerous and I’m worried for the well being of my friend. I don’t want him to do something stupid just because his Wife says so.
Am I out of line? Should I drop it? Or do his Wife’s threats warrant additional action?

2020.09.16 12:13 ManonFire63 The Blind Leading the Blind

I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things. (Isaiah 45:7)
A lot of people have not understood God and the Bible. To understand God and the Bible, someone needs context. Given I was going to play Thomas Aquinas, and post things about God and the Bible on /metaphysics, I may have been banned suddenly. Why? Some people have been doing wrong. Given we are growing in understanding of God, and verses like Isaiah 45:7, in context of men, some people have been doing wrong. Was someone a false teacher? Internet search "The Wicked Bible concordance?"
Sometimes people have had a "Philosophical God." God in a vacuum looking at absolutes. God of the Bible created man. Man has been made in the image of God. What man does reflects. The spiritual is like a mirror? Someone talking about God in that context, a relatable God, some people have not liked that. They were reflecting the wrong things? They were a possessed person.
Song: Precious Declaration.
The Kingdom of God is a political philosophy. Working to understand God, there may be some hard Truths. The Truth hurts. Knowledge brings sorrow. Ignorance is bliss? How did you turn God? Did you like blessings or misery?
Man is the Head, Woman the Neck Turning the Head
Through Dr. Jordan Peterson, I became aware of Dr. Carl Jung. I don't like Dr. Carl Jung. A lot of what he taught assumes "Occult Person Outside of God." Someone growing in Faith, working to be of One Mind with God is different. (Philippians 2:2) Dr. Carl Jung wrote about the Anima and Animus. These may have had some associations with some Christian concepts. I have been shepherded towards 1 Corinthians 11:3. We have an association of God - Man - Wife in a hierarchy. Man is meek before God. Woman meek before her husband. Faith is like a marriage.
(This has been a complex topic. Some of this may be going at high speed for your average Reddit reader. I am assuming you know something about Dr. Carl Jung, or have been smart enough to go internet search him, and come to some understanding. I am assuming you are capable of reading comprehension, and can read the Bible. Knee jerk reactions make you a resister to the Kingdom of God and show you to be uneducated and incapable.)
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. (1 Corinthians 11:3)
Faith is a lot like a marriage. Man goes to work, and puts in a hard day. He comes home, and finds his house clean and dinner on the table. Faith is evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1) Man didn't necessarily see his wife clean his house, or cook his food. He found evidence of things unseen. Given man comes home day after day, and finds his wife faithful, he grows in trust a faith with her. Faith is a knowledgeable dependence. God works exactly as The Prophets and Men of God in the Bible, whom he has spoken through, has said God has worked. Reading the news day to day, a man may have been able to pick up on what God has been doing in an understanding of God's plans leading to The Kingdom of God.
In an understanding of men and women, man is the head. He is a decision maker. Woman has been an influencer. She has been the neck turning the head.
Song: Back to Life.
Animus and Anima may have been more associated with marriage, and someone becoming "One Flesh." Man is meek before God. Woman meek before her husband. There has been a relationship there.
Usually when I bring up this topic, I have liked to bring up "Head Above Water" most recently.
Head Above Water (The Following Has been Posted Elsewhere Before)
I found “Head Above Water” the other day on Facebook. God shepherded me to create a teaching mechanism. The following is a series of four songs.The best way to watch it is in order. What do the words mean? What is the meaning of each song, and is there some meaning when all taken together? What is the association of various words and imagery with The Bible? Given someone needs help, ask?
Article: https://godtv.com/avril-lavignes...
Being tolerant is not a virtue. No moral person is tolerant of everything. Some Christians have been luke-warm Christians. They have tolerated evil. Given evil is allowed to manifest, may be the result?
Song: "Redemption City."

2020.09.16 10:51 whyme1924 The Definitive Guide to Why Stonetoss is a Nazi.

Note: This Post Contains Original Stonetoss Comics
Nazi propaganda is now being effectively promoted by edgelords as a natural extension of online trolling culture. Innuendo Studio did a good break down of this in their video which they called the "Alt-Right Playbook: The Card Says Moops". I'm not pretending that a bunch of Nazis sat around working out this strategy, rather that the very nature of message boards like 4/8chan and even reddit lead to this trolling culture to develop, and trolling is particularly attractive to Nazis.
As stated in the video one of the main techniques they use is exploiting the good faith of others by demanding that someone "debates" them. Except their purpose is never debate, they engage solely in bad faith, with dishonest and inconsistent arguments designed to fluster, antagonize and demoralize their intended victim. It's not about being "right", it's about "right, now".
That's is why edgelords and trolls get upset when you look at their post history, because it lets you know whether or not this person is arguing in good faith, or is just trying to waste your time. So an edgelord like Stonetoss keeping a consistent user name for 4 years is the sort of laziness the Nazis exhibited when they reused enigma cipher codes, and inadvertently gave the allies the ability to crack it. Just like them he is giving the game away.
Who is Stonetoss?
Stonetoss is the illustrator behind the two web comics Stonetoss and Red Panels [Full Explanation Here]. Red Panels was a webcomic active between 10 Aug 2015, and 2 Feb 2017, producing 370 comics over a brief 18 months. Stonetoss hadn't quite worked out the grift when he was working on Red Panels, he was too overt and not "ironic" enough.
He essentially forced himself to start an entirely new webcomic. In an attempt to distance himself from Red Panels, he had a short hiatus until 18 July 2017. Not being particularly creative, and frequently making the same joke over and over, the [the first Stonetoss comic] was a rehash of an racist early RP comic promoting segregation and fear mongering about miscegenation. He has published approximated 260 since then under the alias of Stonetoss.
What makes someone a Nazi?
Inb4 the neckbeards start saying "But ACKCHYUALLY well google says that Nazis can only be a member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party." Because I could also do that and say that actually Merriam-Webster also includes that a Nazi is someone who is "a harshly domineering, dictatorial, or intolerant person", while this definition helpful in making my point, given that dictionaries are descriptive not prescriptive, they merely tell us how words are used not how they should be used.
And that's true given that the term "Nazi" is often used hyperbolically to draw attention to particular issues that people think aren't stigmatized enough. In this way it is often abused, for example, it is frequently claimed that the Nazis were National Socialists therefore any sort of government action is socialism so people advocating for things like universal health care are the real Nazis. Or that because Hilter was a vegan therefore all vegans are Nazis. Clearly these are garbage talking points.
Godwin's Law
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."
It is claimed under "internet etiquette rules" that once such a comparison is made, the discussion is effectively finished and whoever mentioned Hitler or the Nazis has automatically lost the debate. But like most "internet fallacies" edgelords ironically invoke them in a fallacious way like Stonetoss does in [this comic].
Even Mike Godwin the person who gave the 'law' a name says that some references to the Holocaust and other Nazi crimes are legitimate and can be helpful. He even goes as far as saying we should call those who participated in the "Unite the Right" rally Nazis. I agree. This rally demonstrated that there is no harm in calling the KKK or Neo-confederate or the alt-right Nazis - like any group they make bicker internally but they all stand together.
Charlottesville
While there is no evidence that Stonetoss was an actual participant at the "Unite the Right" rally, we also don't have any evidence that Stonetoss has ever been outside. But the rally was was attended and promoted by many groups he associates with, and whose agendas he promotes. Even after a Nazi terrorist attempted to murder 30 or so people, maimed dozens and murdered one, we do know that he was still directly sympathetic to their cause. As only days later he posted [this comic] to show his solidarity with the Nazi terrorist at Charlottesville. Months later he was still sympathetic to their cause further when he posted another comic deriding "centrists" for thinking the Charlottesville "Tiki Torch Nazis" were far worse than gay rights activists.
Who Should We Call Nazis?
So when we say "Stonetoss is a Nazi" we don't literally mean that Stonetoss is literally a member of the Nazi Party. Nor do we mean that Stonetoss has literally murdered millions of Jews, because even Hitler didn't personally pull the trigger. But even then at what stage did Hitler become "literally Hitler" and it "ok" to call him a Nazi?
The better question would be what should be associated with Nazism? And that can be answered by asking, why are Nazis history's perpetual bad guys? And who did the Nazis hate?
The Modern Neo-Nazi
Richard Spencer is the guy who claims to have invented the term "alt-right" and who was one of the organizers behind the Unite the Right Rally. A rally which ended with a different Nazi attempting to murder over 30 people in Charlottesville in August 2017. Richard "Little fucking k---s. They get ruled by people like me. Little fucking oct------ns... I fucking ... my ancestors fucking enslaved those little pieces of fucking shit" Spencer also claims he is not a Nazi. Such denials can clearly be dismissed with mockery and scorn.
Modern Neo-Nazis like Richard Spencer and his close colleague Andrew Anglin the guy behind the notorious Neo-Nazi Website the Daily Stormer (named after Hitler's favorite newspaper Der Stürmer) are representative of the new Modern Neo-Nazi alt-right who have taken off their swastika arm band and replaced it with a MAGA hat, "irony" and memes. We saw the same thing with the Christchurch Mosque shooter's manifesto. Here is an example of [an article] from the Daily Stormer, note the memes, the hateful Stonetoss edit and of course the fact that it seems like it was written by a 13 year old edgelord from 4chan - because it probably was.
Direct Nazi References
The Company He Keeps :
You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep, and the people they look up to.
White Identitarianism / Supremacy / Nationalism
One of the fundamental principle of Nazism is the doctrine of White Supremacy, a doctrine based in the pseudo-scientific "race science". This racism has always been just as illegitimate as the Nazi's myth of the existence and supremacy of the white / "Aryan Race".
Racism
Nothing was more important to Nazis than "racial hygiene". That's why approximately 23% of all of ST's comics in some way relate to it. And at the bottom of the Nazi's racial hierarchy was the Jews and Black people. And while ST hates anyone not confirming to his ideal "white" race, black people are a significant focus of his hatred. Out of 650+ comics ST comic only a couple of comics e.g. ST 15 Nov 18 "Target Acquired" have portrayed non-white people in a somewhat positive light.
But even then when he does portray non-white people he plays the "identity politics" which he claims to despise e.g. ST 4 Jan 18 "Power Word". And he only ever represents "non-white" people in a positive way in an attempt to obscure his openly racist agenda e.g. ST 14 Aug 18 "Undocumented". He again plays "identity politics" using black people as a prop to attack trans people in ST 24 Oct 19 "Calling the Kettle Black". He did the same thing in ST 27 Dec 17 "Refugeesus" when he attacked trans people and uses them as prop to attack immigrants. And in ST 8 Jan 19 "Branded" ST uses his classic hypocrisy by saying it is bad when "SJWs" call him out when for playing the identity politics that he claims he despises.
Racial Antisemitism
Like all Nazi's Stonetoss is a virulent antisemite, in fact almost one in ten Stonetoss comics is about them. So of course he traffics in all of your typical antisemetic canards and asinine conspiracy theories about "the Jews". Except Stonetoss isn't just an antisemite he, like all Nazis, believes that the Jewish people are of a separate and inferior "race" than white people. This is racial antisemitism. In the same way he attacks Muslims he often tries to hide his racial antisemitism behind the legitimate criticisms of Israel.
Islamophobia
It has been suggested by several scholars that Islamophobia should be considered a modern form of "cultural racism". If you're slightly left of Hitler it's not hard to see why, there are legitimate criticisms to be made of Islamic theocracies and Islamic Fundamentalists, so of course cowardly racists like ST attempt to hide their racism behind these legitimate criticisms. Muslims were the 5th most popular topic in his Red Panels strip.

There's literally zero evidence that Russia meddled in any serious way. Infinitely less so than Israel and SA, that's for damn sure.
what fucking business does a US presidential campaign manager have engaging in clandestine meetings with Russian intelligence officers?
They want to know who will be the POTUS, because that's very impactful to global politics?
This RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA bullshit is pure propaganda that they're pushing so that you don't stop for second to pull your head out of your ass, look around, and see the US Oligarchy is fucking you.

2020.09.15 15:07 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Fifty Days To Heave Your Loser by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (09/14/20)

"Joe Biden can’t run from his disastrous record responding to the coronavirus." - Ronna Romney McDaniel, with a strong handle on who is currently president

Tricks And Stones

Reaffirming his status as the “law and order” candidate, Donald Trump spent his weekend defying state coronavirus restrictions and praising extrajudicial killings. The order is palpable.
Perhaps even more alarmingly (and that “perhaps” is doing a lot of work), Trump has stacked the government with people who will spread these poisonous conspiracy theories, including a top official at the Department of Health and Human Services.
With 50 days to go until the election, it’s important to be very clear about what Donald Trump and his allies are positing: The only valid election results are those that reinstall him, the only valid science is that which supports his political message, and the only valid laws are those that serve his purposes. Get involved in this election if for no other reason than to make sure there’s a next one.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

In a terrific new episode of Hall of Shame, Rachel and Rachna dive into one of the most notorious scandals in football, The New England Patriots' Spygate. They explore why the world sees the New England Patriots as dirty cheats, and dissect the integrity of America’s favorite love-to-hate team.

Under The Radar

A nurse at an ICE detention center in Georgia has filed a whistleblower complaint about “jarring medical neglect” at the facility. The nurse, Dawn Wooten, alleged that the Irwin County Detention Center had underreported coronavirus cases, knowingly put staff and detainees at risk of exposure, and refused to test symptomatic detainees. Beyond the dangerous coronavirus practices, Wooten and multiple other women described an inordinate number of hysterectomies performed at the detention center. Wooten said of the facility’s consistently-used gynecologist, “Everybody he sees has a hysterectomy—just about everybody.” Many of the detained women told Wooten they didn’t understand why they were being forced to have the surgery. One detained immigrant told the advocacy group Project South, “When I met all these women who had had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp. It was like they’re experimenting with our bodies.”

What Else?

At least 33 people have died in the west coast wildfires, and we’ve only just begun to learn their heartbreaking stories. On his visit to Sacramento, CA, today, President Trump had this assessment of climate change and the resulting devastation: “It'll start getting cooler. You just watch...I don't think science knows, actually.”
A Trump-appointed federal judge has struck down Pennsylvania’s coronavirus restrictions, deeming them unconstitutional on the basis of discredited right-wing legal theories.
South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg reported hitting a deer with his car on Saturday night, but in fact fatally hit a person, whose body wasn’t discovered until the next morning. Ravnsborg has gotten six speeding tickets in the last six years.
Two Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies were shot and critically injured in an ambush on Saturday night.
The same night, other Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies tackled and arrested journalist Josie Huang, whose video of the arrest revealed the officers lied in their incident report when they claimed Huang didn’t have press credentials and ignored demands to leave the area.
Michael Bloomberg will spend at least $100 million in Florida to help elect Biden, where polls have recently tightened and Latino voters have been inundated with disinformation and QAnon conspiracy theories. (Cool, but let’s not leave this up to Bloomberg.)
Coronavirus cases have surged in 460 counties that are home to Sturgis bikers. 🎸Like a true nature's child/We were born, born to be wild(ly contagious) 🎸
Canada reported no new coronavirus deaths on Friday for the first time since March, a thing that is possible for countries to achieve. Israel will begin a second nationwide lockdown, a thing that is possible for even countries with crappy leaders to achieve.
Oracle beat out Microsoft in the bidding for U.S. operations of TikTok, which probably has nothing to do with Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison’s hefty donations to the Trump campaign.
No longer content to ruin everyone’s day with a transphobic tweet, J.K. Rowling appears to have gone ahead and written a transphobic book.
Scientists have found traces of a gas on Venus which on Earth is only produced by living microorganisms, but could have some other explanation on Venus, which is a risk we will simply have to take as we are already en route.

Be Smarter

An NPR and PBS Frontline investigation found that even while oil and gas companies were spending millions to sell Americans on the idea that most plastic could and would be recycled, the industry knew it was a lie. The recycling process is much more expensive than manufacturing new plastic, and plastic degrades quickly, meaning it can only be reused once or twice. Documents show that the industry has known since the ‘70s that plastic recycling wasn’t feasible on a broad scale—most of it gets buried, burned, or dumped in the ocean—but paid for ads touting plastic recycling and lobbied for a mandated recycling symbol on all plastic products to make consumers feel better about buying them.

What A Sponsor

If there is one thing that health experts agree on, it’s that the perfect diet doesn’t exist.
Even when we eat super well, our daily nutritional needs are constantly changing due to depleted nutrients in the food we eat, stress, environmental toxins and more.
As a result our digestive systems may be compromised and struggle to absorb as efficiently as they should in order to support our immune system, gut health and energy levels.
Enter a multivitamin Athletic Greens.

Is That Hope I Feel?

Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh have found that a tiny antibody component holds promise for the development of a potential coronavirus treatment.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has blocked Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins from appearing on the ballot, which clears the way for election officials to begin mailing ballots out to voters. (Hawkins, incidentally, had admitted that Republicans were funding the party’s legal effort, and the party’s petition was filed by a law firm with a history of representing Wisconsin Republicans.)
Liberal philanthropist Susan Sandler has announced a $200 million investment in racial justice groups that are combating systemic inequality and working to boost voter turnout in battleground states.

2020.09.15 04:55 diazenos Help me dissect footage of a police abuse in my home country

Hey fellows:
I'm a young reporter who's starting to learn about OSINT techniques to, hopefully, apply them some day in my work. This exercise is meant for practice, not for publishing. Would you help me find more elements? As I was warned by the admin, I'm making clear I'm not looking for any sort of personal information.
So, the past weekend, this happened in my home country. In the video, you can see a group of police officers beating down a person and a cop shooting at a car, a very unprofessional procedure. It was all caught on tape and it went viral.
I've got two links here. The first one is a longer version and the second one has a better resolution. I assume the clip was viralized through Whatsapp, because I can't seem to find the original one in social media.
Version 1
Version 2
If you'd like to watch it frame by frame with a browser extension, you can watch from this YouTube link.
Well, first step I think would be establishing the geolocation, right? This is it: -2.202067, -79.884565. The corner where the beating and the shooting happen. And these are the coordinates where police officers arrest the people inside the car they had shot at: -2.202260, -79.883945.
So, this is what we can determine from the footage. Please share any extra elements you might find. I'm gonna take as a reference Version 1 of the footage, because there's more content.
  1. In the first seconds, you can see a guy fighting with police officers somewhere near this coordinates: -2.202477, -79.884684.
  2. At around 01:05, you can hear 5 shots being fired. It's hard to tell which direction the sound comes from.
  3. Then, the camera turns the other way to the first coordinates I showed you (-2.202067, -79.884565). This is where the brutal beating happens at 1:21, when the officers start dragging this person. Then, they start kicking this guy on the ground. This is the first officer that starts kicking. After that, these two start doing the same. I counted at least 10 kickings, as far as the footage shows.
  4. After that, this officer leaves the scene and starts walking towards the street. You can see him reaching for his gun.
  5. At 01:39, we can determine two elements. You can hear the sound of the officer loading his gun., and you can also see the number of the police car parked at the scene: 047.
  6. A car is escaping from the scene. You can see this police officer holding his gun and shooting at it.
  7. The officer who shoots then crosses the street to the other side of the corner. We lose track of him at this point of the footage.
  8. A few seconds later, we watch the people who were in the car that was shot being arrested. These are the coordinates: -2.202260, -79.883945.
  9. After that, the camera turns the other way and starts filming the scene of the beating incident, where the guy who was beated still lays on the ground. There are some people trying to assist him. The police officer who's still at the scene, now alone, starts pepper spraying on those people. You can see him do this on several occasions.
  10. Now, I'm not sure about this, but I think the same officer who shot at the car then goes back near the spot where the guy who was beated still lays on the ground. You can see he's still holding his gun on his hand.
  11. He crosses the street again.
  12. After that, the situation seems to be more calm. You can see a police car circulating, which is probably the police car in which the two detainees from the car incident were put at.
And I've got more. This is the police report from that night. The original is in Spanish, so I will translate:
Zone: 8
District: 9 de Octubre
Circuit: Chile
Subcircuit: Chile 3
Date: September 13th, 2020
Time: 01H30
Location: Eloy Alfaro y Febres Cordero (These are the coordinates for that intersection: -2.202723, -79.883951)
News: Arrest of citizens for agressions to police officers
My Coronel, I inform that, as I was on duty as Guardian 09 de Octubre in usual circulation, we proceeded to collaborate with unit Chile 4, that was evicting people who were drinking in the public space. Around 20 citizens who were drinking did not follow police instructions and they started insulting us saying "tombo hijueputa, let us drink". After that, they pushed and attacked, hitting Sargent Ulises S. in the face. A Colombian 35 year old citizen leaves the scene and he is intercepted by unit Victoria 5 at Eloy Alfaro and Cuenca (coordinates: -2.203388, -79.884087). He punches with his left arm the Kia cerato 1925 police vehicle from Victoria 5 circuit and he breaks it. Then, we proceed to neutralize the agression and detain the suspect. It is worth mentioning that at this location there where people who were threatening to throw glass bottlers and objects to the police officers who collaborated with the procedure. One of our officers was thrown a plastic bottle full of water. We were able to identify, neutralize and arrest the suspect. At this location, as there were threats from the people who were drinking, we preceeded with progressive use of force, using our equipment (pepper spray) so we could neutralize the agressions.
Reports:
Lieutenant Israel V. Guardian 09 de Octubre.
As you can read, no mention on the use of guns in the incident, nor the beating.
That would be all. I hope you guys can help me dissect this.

2020.09.15 02:01 autotldr British pro-Israel lawyer admits staging graffiti attack to frame Palestine solidarity group

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 63%. (I'm a bot)
Matthew Berlow has confessed to helping fake an anti-Semitic graffiti attack on his own home in order to defame the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
According to an investigation by the Law Society of Scotland, Berlow acted alongside a man named Ed Sutherland, who had created a fake Facebook profile under the name Stevie Harrison in order to infiltrate the pressure group last year.
Berlow and Sutherland are both involved in Friends of Israel, which works to promote the country's interests in the UK. Stevie Harrison - who Sutherland had made into a pro-Palestinian activist - posted on Facebook about the graffiti scrawled on Berlow's Glasgow home.
Berlow claimed on Sunday the plot had been a sting in order to catch someone who had ben stalking him.
SPSC member have demanded Berlow pay compensation to those smeared in the bogus attack.
Mick Napier, the chair of SPSC's Glasgow branch, told the Daily Record: "We welcome the finding against Berlow but the gravity of the offence clearly merits more than a £500 rap on the knuckles."
