TL;DR: Exercise company releases ad promoting exercise. Feminists complain that exercise is bad and it's sexist to encourage women to exercise.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-peloton-advertisement-idUSKBN1Y81VG

>(Reuters) - Exercise bike and treadmill maker Peloton Interactive Inc’s (PTON.O) latest Christmas advertisement has been widely criticized on social media as being “sexist” and “dystopian”.

>The advertisement, called “The Gift That Gives Back”, shows a woman receiving a Peloton bike as a gift from her husband following which she records her workouts over a year and shares them with him through a video blog.

>The company spokeswoman said on Wednesday it was disappointed how some people had misinterpreted the commercial, which also had other positive feedback on a campaign that was meant to celebrate fitness.

>The 30-second ad sparked a storm on Twitter, with several users pegging it as sexist. Some said the husband was “controlling” and “manipulative” as buying his wife an exercise bike suggested that the she needed to lose weight.

Has nothing to do with what I said. Personally I think that the weight loss industry is making people fat, somehow. Whether in the food, air, or water. I think trannies benefit from making women feel like shit for not looking like the trannies they have on magazine covers. If you can deppress people and make them not feel good enough...you can shorten thier lifespan and control them. I think it's a social experiment. Nobody used to care if someone was fat...look at all the paintings and sculptures of fatties. In Africa, where they are away from media, the natural preference is for big women.

what's weird is that feminism 20 years ago was still a stupid movement for misandrists with a victim complex, but people just ignored them when it came to stupid shit like this. Now there's social media and companies have started pandering to feminists so much that their dumb opinions actually make the news.

https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/473469-supreme-court-denies-trump-request-to-resume-federal-executions-on

The Supreme Court on Friday denied the Trump administration's request to immediately lift a block on federal executions so that it could move forward with a death sentence that was scheduled to be carried out on Monday.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) had filed an emergency request with the court to vacate a stay of all four planned federal executions. A fifth execution has also been delayed for unrelated reasons.

The first was scheduled for Monday and the others were set to be carried out through December and January.

A federal judge last month ordered a hold on federal executions while a separate legal challenge over the DOJ's new lethal injection protocol plays out before an appeals court.

In a statement issued on Friday, conservative Justice Samuel Alito, joined by his colleagues Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, urged a quick resolution of that case.

"The Court has expressed the hope that the Court of Appeals will proceed with 'appropriate dispatch,' and I see no reason why the Court of Appeals should not be able to decide this case, one way or the other, within the next 60 days," Alito said.

The federal government has not carried out a death sentence since 2003.

It's not that simple in a judicial system that isn't perfect. Most of those people that are in jail were simply judged, but not proven guilty in an absolute sense. Testimony and junk isn't absolute proof. It's word against word. So whoever is the better actor wins. The idea of killing someone that lost a battle of charisma is ludicrous. Being convicted for murder when a body is never found, then getting killed, only to have the person resurface a few years later alive and well - that is not something anyone wants to deal with. You can't undo a government sanctioned killing. At least if they're in prison, they can get paid for the "inconvenience" of being wrongly locked up for a few years when new evidence shows up.

Abortion was okay because it was a population control measure. Back when Roe vs. Wade was going on, we didn't have all these severe immigration issues and whatnot. Abortion was allowed because it mainly filtered out portions of the population that were only a drain on the economy. Undesirables. This was, of course, note in writing because you don't say it outloud for obvious reasons. It's why government will always be transparent to some degree - because empathy conflicts with progress sometimes. Now, today, this entire viewpoint has shifted. Now it's all "yay diversity" and "black lives matter" and that complicates issues because corporations want their low-wage labor and that rabbit hole has no bottom.

These days, liberals love it because it's simply a benefit to their lifestyle and do amazing leaps of logic to justify it. For example, "my body, my choice".... who's body? That's not your body, it's just inside you. That is a different person entirely. You don't have the right to kill them anymore than Siamese twins have the right to kill each other. They share the same body, after all. It's the same damn thing.

A Florida Satanist was forced to change her shirt praising Beelzebub on a recent flight.

Swati Runi Goyal, 49, was flying from Key West to Las Vegas the day before Halloween wearing a black shirt with the text “HAIL SATAN” in all-caps, Buzzfeed News first reported.

The shirt also included the text “Est. 666” and an upside-down cross, a picture shows.

Goyal was seated with her husband on the flight when an American Airlines crew member told her to remove the offensive shirt or get off the plane — delaying the flight until she swapped into an extra shirt her husband was wearing.

“The gentleman asked me if I understood what ‘offensive’ meant,” Goyal told The Post. “I said, ‘I’m a foreign-born minority woman. I know what my T-shirt means and my T-shirt is not offensive.’”

Goyal said she is both an atheist and a member of the Satanic Temple — and bought the shirt to support the non-theistic church.

“It’s usually met with giggles and thumbs up from people who get the irony of the T-shirt,” she said.

Goyal, who is vegan, said she became a supporter of the Satanic Temple because of its tenets — which includes showing “kindness to all creatures.”

>The greatest fear of most dating app users is that their match won't look like their photos, not that their match is a serial sexual assaulter. But according to a lengthy report, produced by BuzzFeed, Columbia Journalism Investigations and ProPublica, dating apps often allow sex offenders to sign up, sometimes repeatedly.

>With the exception of Match, which screens paying users against sex offender registries, many of the larger, often free apps -- including Match Group properties like Tinder, OkCupid, PlentyOfFish and Hinge -- fail to screen, leaving the onus on customers to police for offenders. Many of those apps make these policies apparent upon signing up. For example, Tinder's terms of use reads: "You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users. You understand that Tinder does not conduct criminal background checks on its users or otherwise inquire into the background of its users. Tinder makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of users." The result is an unknowable number of sex offenders on the app, including potential repeat rapists.

>Dating apps don't have a legal obligation to conduct background checks, so they generally don't. The 1996 Communications Decency Act "protect[s] websites from being held liable for their users' speech," according to the article, allowing companies to avoid liability for screening, even in situations where a user reports sexual assault.

>"There are definitely registered sex offenders on our free products," a Match Group rep told CJI, arguing that the company is prevented from scrutinizing because the company's free apps don't collect enough information from its users to accurately screen its users.

>Clearly the current mechanisms don't protect users sufficiently -- but extending those screenings against sex offender registers to all apps, including the free ones, doesn't seem very hard.

>Private payrolls increased by just 67,000 in November, according to ADP and Moody’s Analytics
Dept of labor says this is fake news!
>https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/06/us-nonfarm-payrolls-november-2019.html
Jobs growth soars in November as payrolls surge by 266,000
* Nonfarm payrolls surged by 266,000 in November, better than the 187,000 expected by economists polled by Dow Jones.
* The unemployment rate ticked down to 3.5% from 3.6%, back to the 2019 low and matching the lowest jobless rate since 1969.
* Average hourly earnings rose by 3.1% from a year ago, slightly above the 3% expected by economists polled by Dow Jones.

The jobs market turned in a stellar performance in November, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 266,000 and the unemployment rate falling to 3.5%, according to Labor Department numbers released Friday.

Those totals easily beat the Wall Street consensus. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for solid job growth of 187,000 and saw the unemployment rate holding steady from October's 3.6%. The decline in November's jobless rate came amid a corresponding 0.1 percentage point drop in the labor force participation rate, to 63.2%.

Stocks opened sharply higher in reaction to the better-than-expected report. Bond yields also surged.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/05/us/west-virginia-corrections-trainees-nazi-salute/index.html

A number of employees of the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation have been suspended amid an investigation into a photograph showing a training class apparently giving a Nazi salute, officials said.
The image shows the class members each with a raised arm as the text above reads "HAIL BYRD!" The faces of the trainees and several other people have been blurred out.
The text refers to a training instructor for the class, said the state Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, which released the photo.
Jeff S. Sandy, cabinet secretary for the Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, condemned the salute.
"It is distasteful, hurtful, disturbing, highly insensitive, and completely inappropriate," he wrote in a letter. "It undermines the high standards that have been set for our Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation. It betrays the professionalism I have seen time and time again displayed and practiced by our brave correctional employees."
Sen. Joe Manchin said: "This behavior warrants an immediate investigation and anyone who participated in any hateful and disgusting action should not be able to work for or be paid by the federal or state government and should be removed from their position immediately," he said.
While several employees have been suspended, Division of Corrections Commissioner Betsy Jividen has also directed that all copies of the photo be destroyed or otherwise taken out of circulation "to keep its harm from spreading," Sandy said.
The department informed faith and community leaders of the incident and asked for their help in addressing the situation including with recommending changes or additions to training programs, Sandy wrote.

Russia may know more about the Ukraine scandal than we do

https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-ukraine-spying-trump-giuliani-phone-calls-2019-12?utm_source=feedburner&amp%3Butm_medium=referral&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+businessinsider+%28Business+Insider%29

There's still a lot we don't know because of Trump's decision to stonewall congressional impeachment investigators from getting testimony from senior White House officials and, importantly, Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani spearheaded Trump's pressure campaign in Ukraine, and he and the president have refused to discuss their communications on the matter, citing attorney-client privilege. But the Russian government may already know everything the two men spoke about thanks to their frequent use of unsecured devices.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that the phones Trump and Giuliani use to communicate with each other were likely vulnerable to infiltration by Russian intelligence.

The House Intelligence Committee said in a report this week that Giuliani often spoke with several top Trump administration officials, and likely the president himself, on his personal cellphone. All the while, Giuliani was working with former Ukrainian officials to dig up political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter.

Congressional investigators believe they have enough evidence to bring three articles of impeachment against Trump: abuse of power, obstruction of Congress, and obstruction of justice.

The first two relate to the Ukraine controversy, in which Trump repeatedly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens. The third relates to Trump's efforts to stymie the former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a sweeping impeachment report, t he House on Tuesday outlined evidence of “significant misconduct” by President Donald Trump toward Ukraine, findings that will now underscore a debate over whether the 45th president should be removed from office.

The 300-page report from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee makes the case that Trump misused the power of his office for personal political gain and, in the course of their investigation, obstructed Congress by stonewalling the proceedings like no other president in history.

The report does not render a judgment on whether Trump’s actions stemming from a July 25 phone call with Ukraine rise to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors” warranting impeachment. That is for Congress to decide. Debate will begin Wednesday at a landmark hearing of the House Judiciary Committee.

“We have a very difficult decision ahead of us to make,” said Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., in releasing the findings. “This kind of conduct by a president of the United States, putting his own personal political interest above the interest of the American people, is exactly why they prescribed a remedy as extraordinary as the remedy of impeachment.”

How do you personally reconcile those that are eligible to vote but do not cast one?

If we are to use your model of the choice with the most numbers behind it is the will of the people, then there shouldn't be anyone in the position of president as roughly 45% of the entire voter pool were not swayed enough by any candidate to vote for someone.

I'm not sure how much you want to shave off that number for persons that were physically unable to make it to the polls, but even if you were to take off 10%, that leaves close to 87.5 million individuals that made the choice that no one should be in that office.

voting is probably the biggest sample-size poll we can base the conclusion of will of the people on. if you have a poll with a larger sample size that says that more people wanted Trump, they just stayed home, then maybe we can lend that theory credence. there's also such a thing as mail-in ballots, so being physically capable of entering a polling site isnt a barrier

Conservatives and liberals gave Saudi Arabia money.

On Election Day 2016, I sat in the passenger seat of Alex Jones’s Dodge Hellcat as we swerved through traffic, making our way to a nearby polling place. As Jones punched the gas pedal to the floor, the smell of vodka, like paint thinner, wafted up from the white Dixie cup anchored in the console. My stomach churned as the phone I held streamed live video to Facebook: Jones rambling about voter fraud and rigged elections while I stared at the screen, holding the camera at an angle to hide his double chin. It rarely worked, but I didn’t want to be blamed when he watched the video later.

Four years earlier, Jones — wanting to expand his website, Infowars, into a full-blown guerrilla news operation and hoping to scout new hires from his growing fan base — held an online contest. At 23, I was vulnerable, angry and searching for direction, so I decided to give it a shot. Out of what Infowars said were hundreds of submissions, my video — a half-witted, conspiratorial glance at the creation and function of the Federal Reserve — made it to the final round.

Unconvinced I could cut it as a reporter, Jones offered me a full-time position as a video editor. I quit film school and moved nearly a thousand miles to Austin, Tex., fully invested in propagating his worldview. By the time I found myself seated next to Jones speeding down the highway, I had seen enough of the inner workings of Infowars to know better.

Before we left the office, Jones instructed me to title the video “Alex Jones Denied Right to Vote” when uploading to YouTube. He knew before we left that they wouldn’t let us walk into a polling location with our cameras rolling. I don’t think Jones even intended to vote. Rather, he hoped to turn this into a spectacle, an insult to him personally, another opportunity to play the self-aggrandizing victim.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/dec/5/andrew-yang-on-impeachment-this-is-going-to-be-a-l/

From the examiner:

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang predicted Wednesday that the impeachment push against President Trump is going to be a “loser” for the Democratic Party.

“I’m pro-impeachment, but this is going to be a loser,” the Venture for America founder told Rolling Stone in a new interview.

“Not a single Republican has given any indication that they’re in fact-finding mode. They’re all in defend-the-president mode,” he continued. “You need literally dozens of Republican senators to switch sides when the trial starts, which we’ve gotten zero indication is going to happen.”

Mr. Yang said he feared that Mr. Trump could wind up being “totally exonerated” if the inquiry drags on for too long. That, or the Democrats could end up wasting so much “precious” time attacking the president that they neglect trying to sway voters ahead of the 2020 election.

“If all that happens is all of the Democrats are talking about impeachment that fails, then it seems like there is no vision,” he said. “It seems like all we can do is throw ineffective rocks at Donald Trump, and then it ends up leading unfortunately toward his re-election.

I have no idea what you mean. Do you mean that the new "North" is in control of government, and therefore in control of the most powerful military in the world and the largest nuclear arsenal in the world? If this is what you mean, then I would agree that the North has the advantage yet again.

Okay. I shouldn't have even taken the initial bait that led to this, let's drop it.

Sherman should have finished the job, and if he had had nukes, he would have.

A 35-year-old mother of three was on trial this week for allegedly pushing her ex-husband and her new boyfriend – both of whom desperately wanted to be with her – into fighting for her hand in “a latter-day medieval duel”.

Asta Juskauskiene, a care worker living in London, UK, has been accused of being a “manipulative and controlling figure” who pushed two men fighting for her affection to settle their differences through violence. A court recently heard that the woman’s ex-husband, 42-year-old Giedruis Juskauskas, was found bleeding in the streets and was later pronounced dead as a result of suffering multiple stab wounds in a bloody street brawl with Juskauskiene’s new boyfriend, a 25-year-old ex con named Mantas Kvedaras. The Lithuanian national admitted to the killing, but the prosecution says they have ample evidence that he and Giedruis were egged on by their common love-interest.

According to prosecutors, Asta Juskauskiene divorced her Giedruis, against his wishes, six months before his brutal killing. They had a five-year-old daughter together and were reportedly still intimate even after the divorce, so he was a constant presence at her home. The man also provided financial support for their daughter and according to prosecutors he still claimed Asta as his own. His ex-wife had other plans, though.


Court documents show that shortly after divorcing her husband, the 35-year-old care worker became romantically involved with a Lithuanian man named Andrius Semionovas, who she actually married on 18 February 2019, thinking that he would be able to join her in London, after his release from prison. Their relationship ended when Semionovas stopped and deported when he tried to enter the UK. But through him, she met another inmate, Mantas Kvedaras.

Shit, man. Seeing articles about people from my country is so rare and everytime it happens it's absurdity like this one here. Also, man's name is Giedrius, not Giedruis, author of article didn't check their shit.

Climate change doubters have a favorite target: climate models. They claim that computer simulations conducted decades ago didn’t accurately predict current warming, so the public should be wary of the predictive power of newer models. Now, the most sweeping evaluation of these older models—some half a century old—shows most of them were indeed accurate.

“How much warming we are having today is pretty much right on where models have predicted,” says the study’s lead author, Zeke Hausfather, a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley.

Climate scientists first began to use computers to predict future global temperatures in the early 1970s. That’s when newfound computing power coincided with a growing realization that rising carbon dioxide levels could boost global temperatures. As the issue gained public attention, critics questioned the reliability of rudimentary model predictions. Even a 1989news articleinScienceradiated skepticism, stating that “climatologists may have a gut feeling that the greenhouse effect is heating up the Earth, but they have not been close to proving it.”

Today, the models are much more sophisticated. Mainframe computers driven by paper punch cards have given way to supercomputers running trillions of calculations in 1 second. Modern models account for myriad interactions, including ice and snow, changes in forest coverage, and cloud formation—things that early modelers could only dream of doing. But Hausfather and his colleagues still wanted to see how accurate those bygone models really were.

We do have from 1800s because they lay embedded in sediment.

And we can get good estimates of what is regularly released from volcanoes and nature. Geologists study that shit. And what's going on now doesn't add up to what can be naturally produced.

Near all scientists that study and specialize in various fields of geology and climate agree on this.

But fuck em the I'd rather believe you and the flat earthers.

No. Too new.
>good estimates
Also no.
>what can be naturally produced
That at least some portion of atmospheric CO2 is fossil carbon is undisputed.
>Near all scientists
Not true.
>believe you
Don't believe me. Be skeptical. Of everything.

Why do you assume I'd buy oceanfront property. Everything I own is at a higher elevation.

Nah I can't be as skeptic as you. I stupidly believe an astronaut when he says the world is round and that they can visibly observe climate change from space.
