It'll fail. He's been the most ineffective American president in recent history. We used to say that about Obama, but Trump's presidenct shows the brunt of the problem is the Republican party: the more Republicans in office the more divisive the nation, the more obstructionist congress gets, and the less Congress can pass for ANY agenda.

China Just Banned All Online LGBT Content Reader 07/10/2017 (Mon) 09:28:09 Id: b0bd1a [Preview] No. 1183 [Reply]
>China has never been fond of it's gay community and even more so has been brutally savage in shutting down its online content that the sleeping dragon nation considers to be harsh or extreme.

>So many around the globe aren't surprised that the safe space censorship of the Government’s long arm of propaganda decided to limit what content it's citizens could see on the internet over the last three decades.

>However now China has decided to ban all online references to any lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender content from the eyes of the Chinese people on the internet.

>The newest censorship regulations issued by Bejing will officially prohibit portrayals of homosexuality, prostitution, and any drug addiction. China deems all three to coordinate with one another saying that each of them can lead to the next.

>The China Netcasting Services Association (CNSA) is targeting what they consider "abnormal" sexual activity. Anything homosexual related or promiscuous is officially on their list to be targeted.

>The new rules which were issued last week which demand that online video platforms hire at least three “professional censors” to remove the content. This means instantly putting in ace new algorithms to identify and take down any content considered not sticking to the “correct political and aesthetic standards”, as the official ruling stated.

New Pepe Comic Coming To Life - According To Creator Reader 07/12/2017 (Wed) 03:43:03 Id: 90d973 [Preview] No. 1191 [Reply]
Pepe the Frog is kicking back to life.

>Two months ago, fans mourned the gentle if juvenile comic book character after artist Matt Furie portrayed the amphibian in a casket. The one-page strip followed an eight-month effort to reclaim Pepe from white supremacists who had hijacked his image to promote hate online.

>Now, Furie wants to bring the pot-and-pizza-loving slacker back to life with aKickstarter campaign that will reclaim "his status as a universal symbol for peace, love, and acceptance." The campaign, which started on June 26, has already surpassed its $10,000 goal.

>The Kickstarter appeal marks the latest twist in Pepe's improbable evolution from stoner zine star to online hate emblem. The transformation, which at one point saw a civil rights group formally designate Pepe a hate symbol, underscores how difficult it is for artists to maintain control of their creations after they're on the web.

>"There's something about interacting with a screen rather than actual humans in a room that's really dehumanizing," Furie said in an interview. "There is something about the anonymity of the internet that gives people the ability to express these darker interests."

>There is something about the anonymity of the internet that gives people the ability to express these darker interests.

This could be hugely positive. The money wasted on welfare systems currently is extreme, from calculating to dealing with claimants and processing payments, not to mention the support required to investigate when things are disputed. In addition getting some work, but not full time is incompatible with welfare, leaving claimants with a choice, do some work and risk losing welfare or just wait for that full time job to land in their laps. A flat rate could even save money on larger families that claim vastly disproportionate amounts for their big houses and ten kids, if that's how they choose to go.

Doxing To Become Federal Crime Reader 07/03/2017 (Mon) 07:12:39 Id: b9e083 [Preview] No. 1136 [Reply]

>Doxxing is one of the many online harassment tactics that is considered illegal under state criminal laws but has indirect coverage. Doxxing refers to the deliberate search and publishing of identifying information about a particular individual on the internet with malicious intent. A federal law criminalizing the practice would be more effective, and it appears that one might be on the way.

>Representatives Katherine Clark (D-MA), Susan Brooks (R-IN) and Patrick Meehan (R-PA) have sponsored a bill to criminalize online harassment tactics like doxxing, swatting, sextortion, and revenge porn at the federal level.

>“The fact of the matter is, the laws governing sextortion, doxxing, and swatting were written when computers didn’t fit in our pockets, phones were plugged into walls, and texting required a stamp,” said Congresswoman Brooks.

>The proposed legislation, titled Online Safety Modernization Act of 2017, has been positioned as a roadmap for Congress to “address online safety and combat the rise in online crimes that disproportionately affect women and girls.” The bill particularly mentions sextortion, doxxing, swatting, and revenge porn.

>Revenge porn in particular has already been criminalized by several states across the country. It will also provide training and resources for state and federal law enforcement to deal with these issues.

>It’s unclear at this point in time if all major tech companies will come out in support of the bill but at least we know that Facebook has thrown its weight behind the bill.

Gee, I wonder if they're actually properly defined doxing for the first time in human history, or if this is just another way to selectively fuck over citizens on idealistic premises. But wait a second:

> a bill to criminalize online harassment tactics like doxxing, swatting, sextortion, and revenge porn

Under the same bill? But sir, that's retarded. Also putting it all under "doxing".

>Israel's ambassador in Budapest called on Hungary on Saturday to halt a nationwide poster campaign targeting US billionaire George Soros, which Jewish leaders say is stoking anti-Semitic feelings.
>The posters show a large picture of the Hungarian-born Jewish emigre laughing, alongside the text: "Let's not leave Soros the last laugh", a reference to government claims that the 86-year-old wants to force Hungary to allow in migrants.
>The campaign is the fourth media blitz by the government this year against Brussels or Soros for their alleged attacks on Hungary's hardline anti-immigration stance.
>Since the latest posters appeared on billboards and at public spaces last week, several incidents of anti-Semitic graffiti daubed on them have been reported.

Poland wants USA to extradite a 98 year old former Nazi commander
>Poland's special prosecutors say they have taken steps toward seeking the extradition from the U.S. of a Minnesota man they accuse of participating in a World War II massacre.
