Well... when you consider that the UN placed a Saudi Prince at the head of the "Human Rights Commission", and then EXCLUDED Russia from it... you can smell a fish, eh ?

And the "elites" are fuming at the success & viewership of RT shows in English, like "CrossTalk" and "Keiser Report", tearing off layers of the lying onion of the "ruling class"...
I loved trolling them with RT links. I also go right to rt if I happen to find myself on cnn for some dumb reason.

I'm looking forward to the day the UN makes Venezuela their new HQ.

This is what we're going to be fighting soon! Hopefully we'll send them all straight to the hell they crave and so richly deserve!

Math is Math. It is the least biased thing of which I can imagine.

If you want to make yourself a victim or otherwise go insane, feel free. The rest of us will ignore your stupidity.

Wonder just what that means, “...we’re going to go after your kids, your grandkids and your great-grandkids?”
I think it was meant that they'll go after their kid's votes/support through propogada etc. But with those crazy fuggers you never know. They aren't immune to acting like straight up gangsters.

I've been telling you guys that the Bolsheviks are here and are taking the country. The proof is evident more and more every day! First they take the guns then they round up and shoot everyone who disagrees with them. That's not my theory, that's fact proven over history again and again! They won't stop until they're dead, or we are!

I'd put two in the back of this bitch's head in a heartbeat! She'd do it to me given the chance! ("any means necessary')

I’ve been saying “McCarthy was right,” since I was in grammar school. My teachers didn’t like that.

I knew he was right when I was 15 years old. That never changed in my mind and only got stronger as I got older and learned more.

Too bad we became older and less lethal than we used to be, aye men?
That being said, we're still very fucking dangerous! :totally steamed:

You know that video just game me another thought. All these retail shops are closing but just imagine this "right" to petty theft. There won't be anything available in stores and they will have only on-line shopping left. A business can't stay open when that is allowed. These people will be in trouble because they aren't smart enough to steal on-line. Probably have to turn to out-right robbery of their neighbors.

What they'll do is even easier than shoplifting. Follow the amazon guy around all day and steal pkgs off porches.

10-year-old forced to remove anxiety-causing shirt at airport: 'Security officers have the right'

They've had it with these snakes on this plane.

A 10-year-old New Zealand boy was forced to flip his shirt inside out after airport officials determined its print could make other passengers feel anxious.

Stevie Lucas was vacationing in South Africa, where his mother is originally from, to visit his grandparents when the incident occurred, the NZ Herald reported.

While boarding a flight at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Dec. 17, Stevie was reportedly informed by airport security that he could not wear his T-shirt, which included a large, realistic print of a green snake, on the plane, as it might make other passengers uncomfortable.

The boy's parents, Steve and Marga, apparently advised their son to flip his shirt inside out so that the offending snake pattern would be hidden, leaving the young traveler in a simple black tee. He was then allowed to board the plane without any further issues.

Following the incident, the airport defended its decision, claiming the move was solely meant to protect other passengers.

"Security officers have the right to determine if an object has the potential to harm fellow passengers and crew members” by causing certain feelings of anxiousness, an airport representative said, according to the Daily Mail.

Stevie's parents said their son thankfully remained in good spirits throughout the ordeal and even "proposed a toast" to their South African adventure upon the family's return home from the trip.

Interesting read but the comments are priceless!

Durham investigation focusing attention on John Brennan and some CIA veterans aren’t pleased

A week ago the NY Times reported that the ongoing Durham investigation was looking at former CIA Director John Brennan’s possible role in pushing the Steele dossier. Today Politico published a piece which reads like push back against the Durham investigation from the CIA:


Intelligence community veterans say the Durham probe could force Haspel to choose between protecting her agency from Trump’s wrath and bowing to Barr’s wishes; they point to FBI chief Chris Wray, who has found himself at odds with the president in recent weeks over a watchdog report about the bureau’s conduct in the Russia probe.
And they say the Barr-Durham probe represents overreach by an attorney general who seems to have already made up his mind and is bent on imposing his own skeptical view of the Russia investigation on the intelligence community…
“It is unprecedented and inappropriate to do this via Justice department prosecutors who will tend to apply the standards of a courtroom to the more nuanced, and often more challenging world of intelligence analysis,” said John McLaughlin, who served as both deputy director and acting director of the CIA from 2000-2004…
“I find this troubling and I suspect many inside the intelligence community do as well,” [CIA veteran John] Sipher said, specifically pointing to the CIA’s Brennan records review. The inquiry “was initiated and sold in a partisan manner and this news only highlights that concern,” he said.​

If they have nothing to hide they won't be too concerned.

Anti-Gun PSA Encourages Children To Steal Parents’ Guns And Turn Them In


The anti-gun movement achieved a new level of dangerous mis-information with this ridiculous Public Service Announcement.
The video published by Sleeper 13 Productions shows a young teen sneaking into his parents’ bedroom and stealing a handgun.
A somber tune plays in the background as the boy places the gun in his backpack before heading to school.
Students begin to leave their class as the boy rummages through his backpack.
The teacher flinches in shock as the video reaches the climax, but the boy simply tosses the gun on her desk. “Can you take this away?” he asks, “I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.”
The video was met with sharp criticism for encouraging children to steal their parents’ firearms.
Bonus idiocy: the “scary” handgun is a C11 BB gun that costs about $60 at Wal-Mart.

Basically whoever made this video is so frightened and misinformed that they couldn’t be bothered to include an actual firearm (or even a decent quality replica) in their anti-gun video.
Alan Gottlieb of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Bear Arms, called the PSA a “public disservice announcement” in a press release.
The series of crimes depicted in this video is simply astonishing. We’re talking about felony theft of a firearm, illegal possession of a handgun by a minor, having a gun in a school, illegal concealed carry by a minor, brandishing and maybe one or two other crimes, depending upon the jurisdiction.
The fact that the gun appears to be a very real-looking BB pistol is not the point. The scenario obviously depicts what some youngster should do with a real handgun. Besides, even bringing a BB gun to school is against the law, and at the very least, the boy in this video would wind up being arrested and face felony charges.

We understand from published reports that angry messages have been showing up on this company’s Facebook page and rightly so. The message of this video is so monumentally stupid that if any youth does something like this after watching it, the producers should face charges. If someone is hurt, they should face both criminal and civil liability.

This video isn’t a public service announcement but a public dis-service and the producers ought to be ashamed.
After the negative fallout, The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence contacted Sleeper 13 Productions to learn who had funded the PSA. Rejina Sincic replied via Twitter to say “it was self funded.”
Watch and cringe below.

Say Goodbye to the Information Age: It’s All About Reputation Now
We’ve begun to evaluate and place our trust in the source rather than the message.

Aeon |
  • Gloria Origgi





Photo by Matt Aust | star-trails.de / Getty Images.
There is an underappreciated paradox of knowledge that plays a pivotal role in our advanced hyper-connected liberal democracies: the greater the amount of information that circulates, the more we rely on so-called reputational devices to evaluate it. What makes this paradoxical is that the vastly increased access to information and knowledge we have today does not empower us or make us more cognitively autonomous. Rather, it renders us more dependent on other people’s judgments and evaluations of the information with which we are faced.
We are experiencing a fundamental paradigm shift in our relationship to knowledge. From the ‘information age’, we are moving towards the ‘reputation age’, in which information will have value only if it is already filtered, evaluated and commented upon by others. Seen in this light, reputation has become a central pillar of collective intelligence today. It is the gatekeeper to knowledge, and the keys to the gate are held by others. The way in which the authority of knowledge is now constructed makes us reliant on what are the inevitably biased judgments of other people, most of whom we do not know.
Let me give some examples of this paradox. If you are asked why you believe that big changes in the climate are occurring and can dramatically harm future life on Earth, the most reasonable answer you’re likely to provide is that you trust the reputation of the sources of information to which you usually turn for acquiring information about the state of the planet. In the best-case scenario, you trust the reputation of scientific research and believe that peer-review is a reasonable way of sifting out ‘truths’ from false hypotheses and complete ‘bullshit’ about nature. In the average-case scenario, you trust newspapers, magazines or TV channels that endorse a political view which supports scientific research to summarise its findings for you. In this latter case, you are twice-removed from the sources: you trust other people’s trust in reputable science.
Or, take an even more uncontroversial truth that I have discussed at length elsewhere: one of the most notorious conspiracy theories is that no man stepped on the Moon in 1969, and that the entire Apollo programme (including six landings on the Moon between 1969 and 1972) was a staged fake. The initiator of this conspiracy theory was Bill Kaysing, who worked in publications at the Rocketdyne company – where Apollo’s Saturn V rocket engines were built. At his own expense, Kaysing published the book We Never Went to the Moon: America’s $30 Billion Swindle (1976). After publication, a movement of skeptics grew and started to collect evidence about the alleged hoax.
According to the Flat Earth Society, one of the groups that still denies the facts, the Moon landings were staged by Hollywood with the support of Walt Disney and under the artistic direction of Stanley Kubrick. Most of the ‘proofs’ they advance are based on a seemingly accurate analysis of the pictures of the various landings. The shadows’ angles are inconsistent with the light, the United States flag blows even if there is no wind on the Moon, the tracks of the steps are too precise and well-preserved for a soil in which there is no moisture. Also, is it not suspicious that a programme that involved more than 400,000 people for six years was shut down abruptly? And so on.
The great majority of the people we would consider reasonable and accountable (myself included) will dismiss these claims by laughing at the very absurdity of the hypothesis (although there have been serious and documented responses by NASA against these allegations). Yet, if I ask myself on what evidentiary basis I believe that there has been a Moon landing, I must admit that my evidence is quite poor, and that I have never invested a second trying to debunk the counter-evidence accumulated by these conspiracy theorists. What I personally know about the facts mixes confused childhood memories, black-and-white television news, and deference to what my parents told me about the landing in subsequent years. Still, the wholly secondhand and personally uncorroborated quality of this evidence does not make me hesitate about the truth of my beliefs on the matter.
My reasons for believing that the Moon landing took place go far beyond the evidence I can gather and double-check about the event itself. In those years, we trusted a democracy such as the US to have a justified reputation for sincerity. Without an evaluative judgment about the reliability of a certain source of information, that information is, for all practical purposes, useless.
The paradigm shift from the age of information to the age of reputation must be taken into account when we try to defend ourselves from ‘fake news and other misinformation and disinformation techniques that are proliferating through contemporary societies. What a mature citizen of the digital age should be competent at is not spotting and confirming the veracity of the news. Rather, she should be competent at reconstructing the reputational path of the piece of information in question, evaluating the intentions of those who circulated it, and figuring out the agendas of those authorities that leant it credibility.
Whenever we are at the point of accepting or rejecting new information, we should ask ourselves: Where does it come from? Does the source have a good reputation? Who are the authorities who believe it? What are my reasons for deferring to these authorities? Such questions will help us to get a better grip on reality than trying to check directly the reliability of the information at issue. In a hyper-specialised system of the production of knowledge, it makes no sense to try to investigate on our own, for example, the possible correlation between vaccines and autism. It would be a waste of time, and probably our conclusions would not be accurate. In the reputation age, our critical appraisals should be directed not at the content of information but rather at the social network of relations that has shaped that content and given it a certain deserved or undeserved ‘rank’ in our system of knowledge.
These new competences constitute a sort of second-order epistemology. They prepare us to question and assess the reputation of an information source, something that philosophers and teachers should be crafting for future generations.
According to Frederick Hayek’s book Law, Legislation and Liberty (1973), ‘civilisation rests on the fact that we all benefit from knowledge which we do not possess’. A civilised cyber-world will be one where people know how to assess critically the reputation of information sources, and can empower their knowledge by learning how to gauge appropriately the social ‘rank’ of each bit of information that enters their cognitive field.
