Julian Assange arrested at Ecuadorian embassy
WikiLeaks founder arrested for alleged breach of bail at London embassy where he took refuge for seven years

Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder was granted refuge in 2012 while on bail in the UK over sexual assault allegations against him in Sweden.

At the time, Assange claimed that if he was extradited to Sweden he might be arrested by the US and face charges relating to WikiLeaks’s publication of hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables.

He was mindfucked into a tranny, I'd hardly call that free.
doesn't that violate the 5th amendment
as interpreted by the SC, the 5th amendment only means you don't have to testify against yourself in a judicial proceeding. it's why governments who really want to hear what someone has to say sometimes give them absolute immunity from prosecution - then they can't invoke the 5th amendment anymore. they can still refuse to talk, but that gets them imprisoned.

manning was never immunized from prosecution, but since he's already been convicted of the hacking offense, the double jeopardy clause means he's immune to prosecution for his testimony here. hence, contempt.

91 and died trying to commit bunko, got to admire the chutzpah

LOS ANGELES – A federal grand jury indictment filed late Wednesday charges high-profile attorney Michael Avenatti with a host of fraud and tax offenses that allege, among other things, that he stole millions of dollars from clients and millions of dollars of employment taxes that his coffee company should have paid to the Internal Revenue Service.

Wire Fraud

Avenatti faces 10 counts of wire fraud related to more than $12 million he received on behalf of clients as a result of settlements in lawsuits and other negotiations. While he was entitled to attorney’s fees for work done on behalf of clients, the indictment alleges that Avenatti stole millions of dollars from clients he represented in four matters.

In each of the four cases of embezzlement alleged in the indictment, Avenatti received money on behalf of clients into client trust accounts, misappropriated the money, and lied to the clients about receiving the money or, in one case, claimed that the money had already been sent to the client.

Tax Fraud

The indictment charges Avenatti with a total of 19 tax-related offenses. The indictment alleges that Avenatti has failed to file personal income tax returns since 2010, and that he failed to file various tax returns for his two law firms in which he held a controlling interest.

Bank Fraud

Avenatti faces two counts of bank fraud stemming from an alleged scheme in which he submitted bogus financial information to obtain three loans totaling $4.1 million from The People’s Bank, a federally insured financial institution in Mississippi.

Google's got competition in helping Chinese military to dominate the world. Resistance is futile! Surrender now & your extermination will be quick, otherwise you will need to wait in very long line.

>Tech giant Microsoft has reportedly been working on artificial intelligence research with a Chinese military-run university, recent reports claim that the research could be used for both surveillance and censorship.

>Senior fellow at the New America think tank and China tech expert Samm Sacks commented on the possible issues of collaboration between Microsoft and the Chinese military-run university, stating that the recently published papers raised “red flags because of the nature of the technology, the author affiliations, combined with what we know about how this technology is being deployed in China right now.” Sacks added: “The [Chinese] government is using these technologies to build surveillance systems and to detain minorities [in Xinjiang].”

>Worryingly, some of the recent projects Microsoft researchers worked on with the NUDT have direct surveillance applications. One of the papers that was co-authored by Microsoft and NUDT researchers investigated a new A.I. method of recreating detailed environmental maps through the analysis of human faces which experts believe could have direct applications for surveillance. Pedro Domingos, a professor of A.I. at the University of Washington, commented on such applications stating: “Let’s suppose I’m an intelligence agency and I have pictures of people of interest; I can use the system to tell something about the place they’re in that they didn’t realize they were giving away.”

President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on Congress to take action on immigration, placing the onus on Democrats to come to the table after he'd threatened to close the southern border over the increasing number of asylum seekers crossing into the US.

"Congress has to meet quickly and make a deal. I could do it in 45 minutes. We need to get rid of chain migration," Trump said during an Oval Office press availability with Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
"We need to get rid of catch and release and visa lottery. And we have to do something about asylum. And to be honest with you, we have to get rid of judges," the President continued, later explaining that he no longer wants to catch people trying to illegally cross the Southern border and "bring them to a court."
The list of topics Trump claimed could be addressed in 45 minutes has long vexed Congress, and almost certainly run afoul of the priorities of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose Democratic votes Trump would need to pass any immigration legislation.

"It is the worst, dumbest immigration system in the world," Trump said of the US immigration system. "The Democrats can change it in one meeting. Everyone would agree. But they don't want to change it because they don't want to give Republicans a victory. "
The President said he'd spoken to Democrats about a potential immigration deal, and "all the sudden they're changing" their minds.
Last week, the President threatened to close the southern border if Mexico did not begin apprehending more migrants attempting to come to the US. Trump acknowledged that Mexico had increased its apprehensions on Tuesday.

It's mainly all fluff, but the media, shocking no one, refuses to report that Trump's hard core supporters don't care about the Constitution or a democracy, they want a dictatorship and Trump to be the dictator.

I can't tell whether this is your nightmare or dream. Either way, it's a fantasy generated in the dark recesses of your own mind.

Coincidentally, I know a great way to solve that sudden manpower surplus and it also involves the Mexican border.

>Shit tons of rules and regs for construction. Some local, state, federal.
>Construction firms must do all the leg work themselves or hire consultants to verify code compliance
>Two dudes say, "Fuck that shit. Let's build a knockoff construction code database."
>International Code Council, not part of federal government, gets butthurt and sues them with claims of copyright.
>Argument for ICC is that they lose money and cannot continue updating/maintaining codes.
>Argument for the two brothers is that needing to pay for access to laws is not only undemocratic but as soon as it enters the public domain, it cannot be claimed as copyrighted.
IS the ICC truly separate from the government? I liken them to be a contractor of the government. They do the dirty work.

A failure o the contractors to abide by the ICc’s codes is by extension a failure to abide by the governments. Their copyright monopoly on the building regulations is not absolute, as the builders can ensure compliance themselves “ie, do the leg work”. It’s just a money-making scheme - though, why isn’t the government funding them anyways?? The proper docs should be why these guys are making their own set of laws and following those instead of the governments - no less the ICC’s
It's a play on technicalities.
We have a similar setup this side of the atlantic: the law (free for all to consult) indicates that constructions must meet various rules, regulations and codes, and lists them. Then, the body responsible to maintain, update and publish those texts is a national organisation, that sells those texts and has copyright over them, with everything it implies (as an aside, construction companies even pay special taxes to fund that organisation and others, but all these regulations are several hundred bucks a pop).
So the copyright is not on the law itself - but on what it forces you to acquire.

It's exactly the same as for insurances: the law says you must insure your car and your house, but doing that costs money and you basically just have to cough it up.

Yeah what about the fact that Isreal is built entirely on stolen land. The plan from 1890 to 2019 has remained the same, an apartheid with a repressed Arab underclass and no state for Palestine. We just now are getting the open truth because Zionists feel powerful and connected enough to do unspeakable human rights abuses (which they have been doing for a century) without lying about it for once.
you say that, but in New Zealand the jewish leaders came forward and stated israel is an inherently semitic state, so criticism of israel is inherently anti-semitic
that's just silly, is it anti whatever to disagree with a country's policies without being against their national religion (I don't like what India is doing that doesn't mean i hate Hindus)
aren't Arabs considered Semitic? isn't it anti-Semitic to side against them?
We already talked about this. The word grew into different meanings.
The semitic ethnic group includes many arabs and israelites amongst others (google Shem to check his descendants' rough spread), but when they use it in 'antisemitism', it became equal to antijudaism.

Quebec is making its fourth attempt to ban hijabs and other religious symbols worn by many government employees much to the dismay of federal politicians and civil liberties advocates who call it discriminatory.

On Thursday, Quebec Premier Francois Legault’s majority government tabled a draft bill that would prohibit public sector workers from wearing any religious symbols, and would bar their ability to challenge the ban on civil rights grounds.

Bill 21 would ban a wide range of government employees in “positions of authority”—including school teachers, police officers, prison guards and judges—from wearing religious symbols including crosses, headscarves, and turbans. It also doubles down on Quebec’s previous legislation to ban face coverings by those providing government services.

Premier Legault said parts of the law provide a “compromise” for public workers who already wear religious symbols. His government also introduced a motion to take down the crucifix in the legislature if the law is passed.

Nunes sending eight criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr

California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday he was planning to send eight criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr as soon as this week.

Nunes, who investigated accusations of FBI and Department of Justice abuse while he was previously chairman of the intelligence panel, did not say who he would be referring in a Fox News interview on Sunday.
Appearing on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures," Nunes said five of the referrals are related to lying to Congress, misleading Congress and leaking classified information.

The other referrals, Nunes said, are allegations of lying to the FISA court that approves foreign surveillance warrants, manipulating intelligence and what he described as a "global leak referral," which Nunes said wasn't tied to one individual.

You have my thanks.

I for one, don't assume any more of myself. I am no sage, but you're none either

>Another example of you injecting your "fee-fees" in the mix. I'm glad you are taking things away from my replies, lord knows you need all the help you can get. Thanks for telling me that you feel that the taxers are justified because they dismiss warnings of expert opinions and have a grudge against the President.

If you love eating and drinking for free and are looking to make some pocket change, there’s a job in China with your name on it. A new type of online service allows people to hire others to eat or drink their favorite treats, either to cure their boredom or satisfy their craving without the calories that usually come with it.

Chinese media recently reported on an increasingly popular service on online commercial platform Taobao that’s as mind-boggling as it is intriguing. People can now go online and hire others to consume certain foods and drinks, and ask them to provide video evidence of them eating or drinking the said treats. Fees usually range between 2 yuan ($0.30) and 9 yuan ($1.35) plus the cost of the food that the client wants consumed. It’s not exactly a get-rich quick kind of job, but there are quite a lot of people willing to do it for the free treats alone.

“Bubble tea drinking” is a particularly popular service, as the chewy tapioca balls and popping boba-containing drink is all the rage in Asia these days, but there are also ads from people willing to eat fried chicken or hotpot for anyone willing to pay for them.

According to Sina News, once the provider of the service and the buyer agree, the provider is required to film themselves going to the restaurant, buy the specified treat and eat it on camera while providing a vivid description of the taste. Some clients even require a short written review and the activation of the stream timestamp to be sure that the person they hired actually does what they are supposed to.

Assange should’ve shat on everybody with his leaks, not just Hillary. Maybe that’s why people are angry at him despite his actions being positive towards transparency. Equal discrimination you get?
Assuming he doesn't decide to conveniently commit suicide while in custody.
I will say as a liberal that assange is a national hero. Truth is the only thing that matters and when you find yourself hating a man for bringing us the dirty truth you truly don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground.
It’s ironic the same conservaniggers who undoubtedly hated Assange before and hated Bradley Manning and other whistleblowers are now bravely in support of assange. Your brains are connected to one thing and it’s political affiliation. Conservatives are some dumb motherfuckers.
i mean, it was useful information, but he was using selective targeting for partisan purposes. he could have done so much more, and he chose basically just to get trump elected


The death penalty for defaming Mohammed in Brunei and for being homosexual: Phobia?
The death penalty for defaming Mohammed in Brunei and for being homosexual: Phobia?
Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker
Modern Tokyo Times

The nation of Brunei will introduce the death penalty for various crimes in accordance with Islamic Sharia law, the Hadiths, and the Koran. This will include the death penalty for adultery, defaming the Prophet Mohammed, sodomy, and other areas. Therefore, the small monarchy of Brunei is notifying the world that Islamic Sharia law will take clear precedence over international human rights.
Of course, it is unfair to solely pick on Brunei because other nations that are ruled by Islamic Sharia law enforce strict restrictions on the rights of apostates, women, non-Muslims, non-heterosexuals, and so forth. Hence, with non-Muslim males facing death or prison for marrying Muslim females in several nations ruled by Islamic Sharia law, then Brunei is following the tenets laid down by the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic Sharia law.
Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah uttered, “I want to see Islamic teachings in this country grow stronger.”
Ironically, while the international community in the non-Islamic Sharia law world is condemning Brunei, the opposite will most likely happen in nations m that support the Islamist worldview. Hence, it is likely that Brunei will become an even more popular tourist destination for conservative Muslims who support Islamic Sharia law. Similarly, with Islamic Banking being very powerful, then Brunei will most likely attract even more capital from nations that support the same religious mindset despite the various sects in Islam.

The share of U.S. adults reporting no sex in the past year reached an all-time high in 2018, underscoring a three-decade trend line marked by an aging population and higher numbers of unattached people.

But among the 23 percent of adults — or nearly 1 in 4 — who spent the year in a celibate state, a much larger than expected number of them were twentysomething men, according to the latest data from the General Social Survey.
