Good! Scientists Have Discovered Method To Destroy Cancer Tumors Using Nothing But Sound Waves Reader 03/24/2018 (Sat) 06:22:04 Id: a80b4e [Preview] No. 7575 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A recent breakthrough in high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy (HIFU) technology has proven its use as an effective cancer treatment. A multi-institutional research team from China developed a semi-enclosed, spherical cavity transducer that can produce a focused, standing-wave field with a subwavelength-scale focal region and extremely high ultrasound intensity. The spherical cavity transducer appeared to generate tighter focal regions and greater pressure amplitude compared with the traditional concave spherical transducer. Researchers said the level of intensity generated by the new transducer design may lead to significant improvements in HIFU therapy. The findings were published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

HIFU is a non-invasive, targeted treatment that makes use of sound waves to eradicate cancer cells. HIFU uses an ultrasonic transducer to convert electrical signals into sound waves, then concentrates ultrasound into a small focal region to raise the temperature to more than 65 decrees Celsius, thereby killing cancer cells in the process without inducing damage to surrounding tissues. The technique works in the same manner as focusing sunlight through a lens, which helps eliminate the disease-causing cells.

HIFU can be used as an alternative to traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery.

High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy proved to be a highly-effective cancer treatment in various studies and clinical trials.

For instance, researchers at the University College Hospital in London examined 625 men with prostate cancer and found that 93 percent of patients who underwent HIFU alone remained cancer-free at five years following the treatment, without requiring surgery or radiotherapy. Data also showed that only one to two percent of patients who had HIFU treatment suffered long-term urinary incontinence, compared with 10 to 20 percent of patients who had surgery. In addition, only 15 percent of patients in the HIFU group developed erectile dysfunction compared with 30 to 60 percent of surgical patients.

“The results of this study are impressive and have the potential to transform prostate cancer treatment for many men in the future. It is extremely exciting technology and these results show that in men diagnosed early by prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood testing, this targeted therapy could be as effective as surgery to remove the whole prostate gland or radiotherapy and cause far fewer side effects,” said study co-author Tim Dudderidge.

The findings were presented at an annual meeting of the European Association of Urology in Munich, Germany.

A British clinical trial funded by the Medical Research Council has also found that 95 percent of patients who underwent HIFU therapy for prostate cancer remained cancer-free at 12 months after the treatment. The researchers also found that none of the respondents suffered urinary incontinence during the follow-up period.

Researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada have developed a new technique that uses focused sound waves to activate minute particles known as nanodroplets. According to the researchers, the new technique was as accurate as using needles in biopsy.

Trade War: China Responds To Steel and Aliminum Tariffs, Targets 128 US Goods Reader 03/23/2018 (Fri) 18:12:54 Id: 756c08 [Preview] No. 7559 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Beijing will take measures against the 128 U.S. goods in two stages if it cannot reach an agreement with Washington, the ministry said, adding that it could take legal action under World Trade Organization rules.

Asian stock markets took a dive on the news, with Japan's Nikkei index sliding as much as 4 percent.

The Friday response from Beijing is relatively measured, experts told CNBC.

The decision to target $3 billion in U.S. imports is significant, "but it's not a lot in terms of the total U.S.-China relationship," said economist Tony Nash, who is CEO and founder of data analytics firm Complete Intelligence.

Chinese imports from the U.S. are expected to hit $172 billion this year, he pointed out.

Trump signed an executive memorandum on Thursday that will impose tariffs on up to $60 billion in Chinese imports. "This is the first of many" trade actions, the president said. The new measures will primarily target certain products in the technology sector where Beijing holds an advantage over Washington.

That followed Trump's executive order earlier this month that imposed broad duties on foreign aluminum and steel imports — an action that many said could trigger a global trade war.

BAD! Congress Just Passed The Worst Bill In History, Ending Internet Freedom As We Know It Reader 03/22/2018 (Thu) 14:41:50 Id: d4ddea [Preview] No. 7517 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BACKUP EVERYTHING AND STORE IT OFFLINE! DOWNLOAD P2P SOFTWARE, WE NEED TO BECOME DECENTRALIZED!

The US Senate just passed one of the worst bills in recent memory, the so-called "Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act" (FOSTA) that cleared the House of Representatives in late February.

This is the measure that would make online prostitution ads a federal crime and decimate Section 230 of the CDA, the federal provision shielding web publishers and platforms from certain legal liabilities for the things that users post. It's largely portrayed as a response to Backpage, but its reach goes far far beyond that.

"In the absence of Section 230, the internet as we know it would shrivel," warned Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) from the Senate floor Wednesday. "Civic organizations protecting their right to free speech could be [ruined] by their more powerful political opponents" and "there would be an enormous chilling effect on speech in America." That's why big companies like Facebook like efforts like this to weaken it, Wyden added—"because it would pull up the ladder in the tech world" so new companies couldn't afford to get in.

[Section 230 protects online platforms from liability for some types of speech by their users. Without Section 230, the Internet would look very different. It’s likely that many of today’s online platforms would never have formed or received the investment they needed to grow and scale—the risk of litigation would have simply been too high. Similarly, in absence of Section 230 protections, noncommercial platforms like Wikipedia and the Internet Archive likely wouldn’t have been founded given the high level of legal risk involved with hosting third-party content.]

Wyden stressed that he's been highly proactive on measures that could actually helps victims of sexual exploitation. But FOSTA "is not going to prevent sex trafficking [and] it's not going to stop young people from becoming victims," he noted. In fact, "the legislation before the Senate is going to make it harder, not easier, to root out and prosecute sex traffickers."

This isn't just Wyden's opinion. The Department of Justice has not only called FOSTA unconstitutional; it says the legislation will "create additional elements that prosecutors must prove at trial," thereby making it harder to get guilty parties convicted.

"You're heading in the wrong direction if you [pass a bill] that would raise the burden of proof in cases against sex traffickers," Wyden chastised his colleagues. He was one of two senators today—along with Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)—to vote against the measure.

Another downside: Under FOSTA, any attempts by a website or app to filter out bad content could lead to more legal liability. The only way for companies to stay safe will be to completely give up on content moderation and trying to stop illegal ads from getting through. An amendment to FOSTA, offered by Sen. Wyden, would have closed this loophole, but it was shot down by a large majority.

I'm glad I have a lot backed up now, from operating systems to software to videos to podcasts and more. I'll say this, if they expect us to roll over and start up a facebook account, they are kidding themselves. We will make due with what we have, and this includes P2P and the dark web. We'll find tech junkies who can create more decentralized platforms and use those instead. They just ignited a war against us, and these dipshits are not going to get what they intend. I encourage everyone to backup everything and we need to start networking and sharing via multiple P2P platforms. I intend on buying myself another laptop sometime soon with a TON of storage space and I'm going to load it to the brim with P2P software! And I'm going to start sharing all the media I have collected over the years. See some of the videos I've uploaded to >>>/saved/ so far... I have plenty more too!

We have not forgot about the repeal of net neutrality, however it looks like the ISPs (so far) are playing fair (as they did before the days before net neutrality). I didn't expect they'd go full bore and mandate website subscription bundles as the blowback would be as big as the cable cutting movement and the big ISPs fear that. The fuck if I'd ever pay an internet service if I only had access to a dozen govt-approved websites. I'd cancel the service in a fucking heartbeat (and so would a lot of other people and the ISPs know that).

As far as this law goes, this is a bigger concern because we are not talking about some greedy corporations who are trying to satisfy their consumers. We are talking about a bunch of commies in our government given the ability to shut any centralized social platform down (such as this site) over content posted by abusive users. The next thing you know people will be spamming abusive content on any website they don't like and the communists will simply start shutting everything down. We already know they hate anonymous image boards, we already know they'd love to force us onto some personalized social media service where they can spy on us 24/7. We know they have contempt for the alternative media and alternative platforms because they can't force their narratives down our throats and getting rid of online protection laws would be a perfect way for them to start shutting all these platforms down.

We need meshnets setup. Actual wired or wifi connections between people. There's so many people with computers today it's possible to shift off of broadband, especially for things that requires lower bandwidth.

Darknets and encryption can and should be run on such networks. People could have private nets and invite only and public flier advertised ones.

One thing is for sure, if they fuck with the internet too much, the 90s "sneaker net" movement is coming back with vengeance. Instead of just CDs and floppies, people will also be swapping flashdrives, DVDs and blurays with one another to share media. It will go back to "well, I have W and X, and I'll make a copies for you if you make some copies of Y and Z for me." People will just be sharing media offline that way if worse comes to worse (assuming whether P2P can somehow be shut off by the ISPs). I have a ton of media to share, I recommend it as an investment especially after SHTF. Imagine you survive an economic collapse and the internet is gone but you still have media backed up, you can trade copies of some porn videos for a meal, clothing or fuel. Or you might come across a someone who liked older TV shows and say "hey, I'll give you some episodes of Gilligan's Island to watch on your laptop for a pack of smokes."



Congress Increases Debt By One Trillion for Insolvent US Govt In New Keynesian Spending Spree (Details...) Reader 03/23/2018 (Fri) 12:34:52 Id: 18af47 [Preview] No. 7551 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Despite Rand Paul and a handful of other conservative Senators's best efforts to kill it, the upper chamber easily passed the long-awaited $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill early Friday morning - sending a bill that would lock in federal funding for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, to President Trump's desk.

The final 65-32 vote resulted from a week of all-night bargaining sessions and repeated delays before the text of the 2,000+ page bill was released Wednesday morning.

Paul and other conservatives complained that the budget would've been adamantly rejected by Republicans if Obama was still in the White House. Republicans touted an $80 billion increase in military spending - which Trump touted as the largest increase in military spending ever - while Democrats highlighted an additional $63 billion in domestic spending, per Bloomberg.

Senator John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican who opposed the bill, also hinted that he too might try to force a shutdown by delaying the vote after criticizing the vote's "price tag".

"It sucks," Kennedy said of the spending measure. "No thought whatsoever to adding over a trillion dollars in debt."

In a move that infuriated his fellow Senators, Sen. Jim Risch of Idaho almost sunk the bill after learning that it included language to name an Idaho forest for Cecil Andrus, the former Democratic governor and Carter administration Interior Secretary who died last year. Andrus and Risch were longtime political rivals, per the Wall Street Journal.

The unceasing squabbling over the bill frustrated many lawmakers, including Bob Corker, who loudly complained about the repeated delays to the vote, per Politico.

"This is ridiculous. This is juvenile," fumed Sen. Bob Corker, who asked McConnell for an explanation of why the chamber was in at midnight. "What has occurred over the last 11 hours that keeps us here voting on a bill that we all know is going to pass?"

The $1.6 billion funding for border security is far less than the Trump administration had demanded. Less than half of that money will be used to build about 33 miles of fencing and levees along Texas' border with Mexico. The White House had initially demanded $25 billion. meanwhile, Democrats won several major concession - particularly regarding immigration enforcement inside the US. The bill provides for minimal increases in funding for enforcement officers.

Democrats and Republicans also struck a compromise on gun control, rolling in the bipartisan "Fix NICS" legislation that will bolster reporting by federal agencies to the database for gun-buyer background checks. It also explicitly allows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to research the causes of gun violence.

The bill also includes $21 billion for infrastructure projects and an additional $4 billion to combat opioid addiction.

One of the biggest obstacles to reaching the agreement was the status of funding for a Hudson River tunnel between New York and New Jersey. Advocates, mainly Democrats and Republicans representing the two states, argued it is one of the most important infrastructure projects in the U.S. But Trump has insisted on removing money for the project, known as Gateway, from the spending plan.

In a decision that is sure to anger commuters in a region that comprises one-fifth of the country's GDP, Trump successfully killed funding for the "Gateway" project - that is, the construction of a new tunnel underneath the Hudson River that connects New York City and New Jersey. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer - who represents New York - assured angry voters that the two states would be able to access funding equal to about half of the $900 million initially requested through Amtrak and grants that don't require approval from the Department of Transportation.

Another $75 million was allocated to train teachers and school officials to respond to attacks. It will also pay for metal detectors and other equipment, while creating anonymous systems for reporting possible threats to schools.

Funding to combat fake interference in the upcoming midterm elections was included in the spending package (so now the US government is funding shills and censorship operations), as was $600 million to build a rural broadband network, per WSJ.

President Trump's budget director Mick Mulvaney assured reporters that the president will sign the bill - and he has all day to do so.

But while the odds that the bill will be signed into law are extremely high, conservative lawmakers are still trying to convince Trump to reject it, forcing a shutdown that would grant them more leverage in trying to force concessions from both moderate Republicans and Democrats.

RED ALERT! US Congress Working To SHUT DOWN All Image Boards, Pastebin Sites, Alternative Social Media Platforms Reader 03/19/2018 (Mon) 22:17:49 Id: 71083d [Preview] No. 7433 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
US CONGRESS ARE WORKING TO DESTROY THE ENTIRE FREE INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT, SO ONLY MAJOR TECH MONOPOLIES CAN EXIST!

The US House of Representatives has just passed a bill called FOSTA (the “Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act”). This bill is headed to the senate. It needs to be stopped.

This bill is, as the name implies, ostensibly intended to fight sex trafficking. Sex trafficking is awful, and should be fought. But a lot of sex trafficking experts think that this bill won’t have that effect. That it will actually make things much worse for sex workers. For example, those sex trafficking victims that are supposed to be protected may suddenly find it illegal to talk about their experiences. Whoops.

That’s probably reason enough not to pass it, or at least to go back and take another look. But that’s not the end of the story.

An amendment slipped into the bill also proposes to override section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Without overstating the case in any way, CDA 230 is the reason small companies like ours can exist. It protects us from liability for the actions and content of our customers. That means if you don’t like what one of our customers has to say, you can’t sue us about it. The First Amendment is great, and we love it, but in everyday practice, CDA 230 is what keeps rich people and companies from filing nuisance lawsuits to force us to either censor our customers at their behest or drown in legal fees. They know that, and they hate it.

As the EFF has pointed out, if this protection is weakened, pretty soon the small voices will be silenced. Not because what they have to say is illegal, but simply because it might be. Fear of liability will force providers like us to either moderate all the content that appears on our service — massively Orwellian and expensive — or simply proactively disallow anything that might possibly create liability. Or just shut down and leave the Internet to the likes of Facebook.

In that climate, the only people who will be able to have websites will be people who can afford teams of lawyers and people who only say things so boring that they don’t run any risk of creating liability. Remember when mass communication consisted of three broadcast TV channels and everything said on them had to be approved by the channel’s “Standards & Practices” department, which censored much more than any law required them to because that was cheaper than fighting? Do you miss those days?

If you’re not that worried about us, that’s fine. Here’s why you should still care. Does your website have a forum? Does your blog allow comments? Do you have a feedback form? A wiki? Could someone post spam anywhere on your site offering sex for money? If so, enjoy your ten years in Federal prison. (And yes, we’ve seen several cases where people engaging in illegal activity find unmonitored corners of sites that allow user-contributed content and use them to communicate. We act to shut that down when we find out about it, but we’re strongly against sending the operators of those sites — or us — to prison for “facilitating” those communications.)

This sort of crackdown on online communication has been attempted several times in the past, usually around intellectual property. (Remember SOPA, PIPA, etc.?) But intellectual property owners, despite being good lobbyists, aren’t very sympathetic public figures. Sex trafficking victims are.

Well the BRICS nations are already creating an alternative separate internet via completely isolated undersea cables that they plan to become a new internet for Eastern nations in the future. This initiative was started after the Snowden NSA leaks and has gained steam. So we might have separate internet(s) in the future:

https://www.itworld.com/article/2705173/networking-hardware/bric-nations-plan-their-own--independent-internet-.html

As far as the current internet, there is no way to kick people off of it unless you know exactly who logs onto it in real time (thus you'd be promoting MORE hardcore governmental surveillance, rather than less of it). And what do you mean by "IP reset?" How do you reset the IP infrastructure? How can that be possible and what happens to the IP infrastructure then?

ALERT! Communist Traitors In Congress Hiding Gun Control Laws In New Spending Bill! Reader 03/22/2018 (Thu) 17:27:04 Id: 738a4e [Preview] No. 7530 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Republicans' massive $1.3 trillion "omnibus" spending bill has at least one enthusiastic fan: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Schumer proudly proclaimed Thursday that the deal shows that America's "era of austerity" has "come to an end."

The New York control freak also praised the inclusion of new gun control measures, but said Congress will eventually need to pass additional gun restrictions as well.

https://archive.fo/QbiN2

One of the provisions would bolster reporting to the federal background checks system for gun purchases. A separate proposal would authorize $75 million this year for school safety training, metal detectors and other infrastructure, and to create systems for anonymous reporting of threats. For further years, it would provide $100 million a year until 2028.

https://archive.fo/jwiU5

UPDATE: This afternoon, the House passed the Omnibus spending bill by a vote of 255-167. The measure now goes to the Senate. Gun owners can call their senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to support a filibuster and oppose the anti-gun omnibus bill.

I'm not sure about this but I speculate the "Fix-NICS Act" was slipped into this bill. What this would do is make the background checks longer, and more law enforcement would participate...

They failed to pass the "Fix-NICS" a while back ago. Regardless, every gun owner should have already prepared for more gun control. It seems like it is coming whether we like it or not. So get whatever you need NOW.



US To File WTO Suit Against China For Trade Law Violations Reader 03/22/2018 (Thu) 15:32:10 Id: 35df30 [Preview] No. 7521 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Yesterday, a flurry of media reports pertaining to the size of anti-China tariffs, and the timing of their announcement, suggested that the Trump team was still working to iron out the details. But with less than five hours to go until Trump's 12:30 ET announcement, the Wall Street Journal quietly reported Thursday morning that the US is also expected to announce a lawsuit against China at the World Trade Organization for trade law violations. The tariffs would be assessed separately without going to the WTO.

The aggressive move comes a day after the WTO said on Wednesday that the US "did not fully comply with a 2014 ruling against its anti-subsidy tariffs on a range of Chinese products." Indeed, the WTO has ruled against the US and US companies several times in recent years. That was the perceived advantage of pursuing actions under Section 301 of the US Trade Act: It would allow the Trump administration to effectively circumvent the WTO.

The U.S. is also expected to announce it would sue China at the World Trade Organization for trade law violations. The tariffs would be assessed separately without going to the WTO.

Trump officials had earlier said that the tariffs would apply to about $30 billion in Chinese imports. An accompanying report on Chinese trade practices is expected to estimate that the harm to the U.S. from improper technology transfer to Chinese firms is $30 billion annually. Beijing improperly forces U.S. firms to transfer their technology to Chinese joint venture partners as a requirement to do business in that nation, the U.S. trade officials allege.

It’s not clear why the administration appears to have settled on a larger number. On Wednesday, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the U.S. was using a computer algorithm it developed to decide which products to target. The U.S. is looking to restrict imports of goods that would harm Beijing, but cause relatively little harm to U.S. consumers and companies.

Trump has said that the tariffs would apply to a list of 100 products, primarily technology exports.

Meanwhile, reports surfaced Thursday that the US would be seeking a dialogue with the European Union about tariffs as Trump insists that the US would never again tolerate unfair trade practices.

For years, China has demanded US companies turn over invaluable source code and other intellectual property as a price of admission to the Chinese market. China has also vowed to retaliate.

Thursday's announcement will be the culmination of an investigation that Trump ordered in August.

The Austin serial bomber suspected of delivering six homemade bombs to locations around Austin this month, killing two people, has died after blowing himself up. Less than an hour after CBS Austin released photographs of the suspect at a Fed-X facility, media reported of an officer-involved shooting on I-35 in Round Rock.

Police have identified the dead suspected bomber as a 24-year-old white male, according to the Associated Press.

BREAKING: APD sources tell us that the #AustinBombings suspect is dead after this officer-involved shooting in Round Rock https://t.co/fmePDy2tkY https://t.co/FS1WMsLmHy

— CBS Austin (@cbsaustin) March 21, 2018

As CBS Austin reported, police were closing in on the suspect when he killed himself by detonating some sort of explosive device in his car, according to CBS Austin's source. People in the area reported hearing the explosion, the New York Times reported.

According to KVUE, the FBI and police tracked the bomber to a hotel in the Round Rock area using cell phone technology, security video, store receipts before 'engaging him' around 3 am on Wednesday. Then, as officers pursued the suspect a device was detonated, before a volley of gunfire.

CBS Austin reported that police pursued the bomber until he drove his car into a ditch off I-35. As officers approached, the bomber detonated a bomb in his car, killing himself and injuring an officer. CBS added that an 11-year veteran SWAT officer fired on the suspect. He has since been placed on administrative leave.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley says the incident that led to the suspect's death will be investigated by the Austin Police Monitor and the Texas Rangers.

Victims Flee Commiefornia In Record Numbers Due To High Housing Costs, High Tax Rates Reader 03/20/2018 (Tue) 18:12:56 Id: 056b76 [Preview] No. 7472 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
PLEASE DO NOT VOTE FOR THE SAME KIND OF SCUMBAGS IN OUR STATES COMMIES! WE DO NOT WANT ALL OF AMERICA TURNING TO THAT SAME KIND OF SHITHOLE!

Commies still love the beautiful weather and beaches, but more and more they are fed up with the high housing costs and taxes and deciding to flee to lower-cost states such as Nevada, Arizona and Texas.

"There's nowhere in the United States that you can find better weather than here," said Dave Senser, who lives on a fixed income near San Luis Obispo, California, and now plans to move to Las Vegas. "Rents here are crazy, if you can find a place, and they're going to tax us to death. That's what it feels like. At least in Nevada they don't have a state income tax. And every little bit helps."

Senser, 65, who previously lived in the east San Francisco Bay region, said housing costs and gas prices are "significantly lower in Las Vegas. The government in the state of California isn't helping people like myself. That's why people are running out of this state now."

A USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Poll of Californians last fall found that the high cost of living, including housing, was the most important issue facing the state. It also found more than half of Californians wanted to repeal the state's new gas tax, which raised fees by 40 percent.

"The rate at which California has been losing people to other states has accelerated in the past couple of years, in part because of rising housing costs," said Jed Kolko, chief economist with employment website Indeed.com.

He said the latest Census Bureau data, from July 2016 to July 2017, show "more people moved out of California to other states than moved in from other states. In other words, California lost people due to domestic migration."

During that 12-month period, California saw a net loss of just over 138,000 people, while Texas had a net increase of more than 79,000 people. Arizona gained more than 63,000 residents, and Nevada gained more than 38,000.

Data from United Van Lines show some of the most popular moving destinations for Californians from 2015 to 2017 were Texas, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Colorado. Other experts also said Nevada remains a top destination.

I do not want to see us go down in flames, I do wish enough Americans would wake up and take some kind of action to resist this shit storm coming our way, even if it is simply by prepping our families for hard times. We can still replace our corrupt leaders if we stand armed and united. A purge is still a possibility in the United States as long as we are armed and prepared enough to engage it. We need to reject the propaganda. We need to learn to man up and say "hell no!" for once. We need to defy tyrannical laws such as gun control. We need to defend ourselves, our families and properties. We need to prepare for crisis. Support the alternative media. Tell the government they can stick that draft up their fat asses if they think we are going to be dragged off to fight (((their))) wars. We need to vote in nationalists and patriots who support freedom and prosperity - throw all political incumbents OUT (left & right). We need to do our best to wake people up. Hell, buy a couple firearms and store them away to give to your kids when they grow up. Teach them about the difference between freedom and tyranny. Teach them governments are the biggest killers in human history (look up democide). Cut the cable TV. Cut off the mainstream publications, don't allow it into your house. Try to pay off any debts if you have them. Become self-sufficient. Help others become self-sufficient. Avoid the major institutions (including social media). Avoid controlled money-milking religion. East healthy organic foods, and learn how to cook your own meals (its really not that difficult, its actually fun). Most of all do not trust the system and rail against it. Tell political correctness worshipers to take a flying leap off a cliff. And procreate with your own race!

If enough people did these things we would become a nation of hardened rebels once again. God-speed, and fuck our communist government!

I agree with almost 100% of this, but you need to be wary of false Nationalists such as Richard Spencer or anyone of the ((alt right)) coined by jew Paul Gottfried. Electing his type will only repeat the cycle.

Agreed. I don't trust people like Rich Spencer, anyone who wants to instigate confrontation should be suspect of working with the feds, or being some kind of PSYOP subversive. As far as the whole "alt-right", didn't Clinton coin that term during her campaign? I never considered myself that. I do consider myself a nationalist because I support individual freedom and national sovereignty. To maintain freedom and sovereignty sometimes people need to reject individuals, groups, mass media or institutions that are trying to undermine our freedoms and by becoming self-sufficient we stand a chance to avoid being controlled or dependent upon those subversive entities.
