Because it is not reported and the impact on western civilisations is not felt. I don't think people know or care a whole lot about Indonesia. If what you are saying is true, then some journalistic effort on documenting this needs to cause a genuine political and societal reaction. If no one is upset about this, nothing will change.

M5S can only work as opposition. They got in power thanks to the previous governments' fuck ups and never stopped whining about "muh system is bad, establishment is incompetent and corrupted" even once they themselves BECAME the system and were ousted as incompetents with a few corrupted among their ranks. All of their major initiatives were really clunky, disjointed and made really little sense, and only managed to riddle us with a shitty and easily abuseable pseudo-welfare system and further destroy our reputation both in the EU and on international markets. I'm glad they got a taste of their own medicine by having to deal with constant criticism while desperately trying to keep their shaky shithole government taped together, even funnier the fact that 90% of it came from their supposed greatest ally Salvini trying to undermine them from within for his own gain.

There is no chance that a trade agreement between the United States and Britain will pass Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday peace accord between Ireland and Northern Ireland, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday.

“Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement, including the seamless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“If Brexit undermines the Good Friday accord, there will be no chance of a U.S.-UK trade agreement passing the Congress,” the Democratic head of the U.S. House of Representatives added, first reported by Politico.

The Trump administration is negotiating a free trade deal with Britain that would go into effect after it completes its exit from European Union. The departure is scheduled for Oct. 31.

But any agreement would have to pass the U.S. Congress, which is split between Democrats in the House and President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans in the Senate.

U.S. national security adviser John Bolton, visiting London this week, said that Washington would enthusiastically support a no-deal Brexit if that is what the British government decided to do and that a trade deal with the United States would help cushion the blow of Britain’s departure from the EU.

All its going to do is open up tons of resources, property, IP and all sorts of investment opportunities that can be reaped for pennies on the dollar - ultimately it'll make the American economy a lot stronger.

This thing where if the US economy fails, everyone else fails too, that's unique to the US and maybe one or two other nations that are absolutely crucial to world trade. In every other situation, a country falling to its economic doom is GOOD for everyone else, who now have one less competitor, and cheap resources to buy on the open market.

To keep your home cool with central air conditioning while also optimizing energy efficiency (and therefore cost), keep the temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.

The suggestion comes from Energy Star, a federal program managed jointly by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency that provides information to consumers about energy efficiency practices that not only save consumers money, but also improve air quality and protect the environment.

With record-breaking heat waves becoming the norm, finding ways to beat the heat without busting your budget might seem mystifying, which is why Energy Star provided consumers with a set of energy-saving recommendations on how to best manage central air conditioning in warmer spring and summer months.

According to Energy Star, keeping your central air thermostat set to 78 degrees is optimal for both cooling and energy efficiency, but this recommendation only applies to the times when you are home.

Because Americans used central AC generally which is sized in a manner to require near constant running during the heat of the summer day to maintain the temperature inside not actually cool it much. Most people's AC if set 5 degrees below current air temp during the summer in the southeast or west will not actually reach that setting until after the sun sets.

The solution is to use mini splits and window units to only cool rooms we are in but we love doing shit the hard way for no reason here in Burgerland

In summary, the appeal of the disgraced cardinal George Pell has been dismissed.

On the first ground – that the jury acted unreasonably in coming to a guilty verdict – the judges dismissed the appeal by a margin of two to one. Chief Justice Anne Ferguson and the president of the court of appeal Justice Chris Maxwell found against Pell, while Justice Mark Weinberg agreed with Pell’s lawyers.

On the second and third grounds the judges dismissed the appeal unanimously.

>A jury found a grocery clerk guilty of killing a 17-year-old boy who ran out of the store with a beer he didn't pay for in Memphis, Tennessee, in a case that had sparked protests, authorities said.

Anwar Ghazali was convicted of second-degree murder after a four-day trial, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Friday. "This defendant took it upon himself to be the judge and jury and the executioner over a $2 beer," prosecutor Lora Fowler said, according to CNN affiliate WMC.
>The shooting happened in March 2018, after Dorian Harris walked out of the Top Stop Shop with a beer without paying, Weirich said.
>Security video of the incident played in court shows that Ghazali, while behind the counter dealing with another customer, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at Harris. He then ran outside to follow the teen and fired several times.
>Afterward, he returned to the store and told a witness, "I think I shot him." He did not call the police, and neither did any other customer inside the store, WMC reported.
>Harris was shot at least three times and was left to bleed out, Fowler said. His body was found two days later in a yard near the store with gunshots in the back of his thigh, Weirich said.
>Ghazali's defense attorney, Blake Ballin, told CNN in an email that Ghazali maintains he acted recklessly that night but his intention was never to harm Harris. He said they were pleased that the jury rejected the prosecution's argument that this was a calculated and premeditated murder motivated by the theft of a beer. That would have come with a potential life sentence.
>Ghazali is expected to be sentenced on September 23.

The Democratic chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission on Friday challenged President Donald Trump to provide evidence of the voter fraud he insists cost him New Hampshire in 2016 or quit talking about it.

In a letter to Trump, Ellen Weintraub said the country's democracy depends on "the American people's faith in our elections. Your voter-fraud allegations run the risk of undermining that faith."

Weintraub's missive came a day after Trump complained to reporters — and to his supporters at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire — that he had narrowly lost the Granite State because of fraudulent voting, a claim for which there is no evidence.

"New Hampshire should have been won last time, except we had a lot of people come in at the last moment, which was a rather strange situation," Trump told journalists. "Thousands and thousands of people, coming in from locations unknown."

At the rally, he told the crowd that New Hampshire was "taken away from us."

Trump crushed his Republican rivals in the New Hampshire primary in 2016 but lost the state's four electoral votes to Democrat Hillary Clinton that November by fewer than 3,000 votes.

Trump campaign officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Weintraub's letter.

Weintraub said Trump should provide his evidence to the public and the appropriate law enforcement authorities.

Google manipulating the election and voter fraud in New Hampshire are two separate issues he's currently complaining about.

"The vast majority of people who smoke started as children or as young teens, and yet you don't hear about people getting lung cancer until their 40s, 50s, 60s," she said. "Think about that compared to what's happening to these kids now. I've never heard of a smoker ending up in the hospital in their teens."

In Moscow, law enforcement officers discovered the factory of trolls of Navalny

On August 19, security officials rushed into one of the apartments in Maryino near Moscow. Several girls were taken from there, who were put in a special bus and taken away, according to the local edition of the Bulletin of the Moscow Region. According to a source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, this group was writing provocative comments and encouraging citizens to engage in illegal activities at Moscow rallies. In addition, the source added: there is every reason to believe that several more similar “offices” operate in Moscow and the region. “Krasovsky’s Shavki” also published a video from surveillance cameras installed in the underground apartment of Navalny’s bots. On the frames you can see the movement of local employees, their working equipment. Apparently, the blogger does not trust his staff too much, and this can turn into a criminal liability. Previously, political technologist Stanislav Belkovsky reported that Navalny had an entire army of bots. In his opinion, such a “support” is needed by a blogger when he has nothing to say to his detractors. Confirmation of his words was found by the RT editorial, who discovered a special Bosslike application for cheating subscribers and likes.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/08/17/report-ilhan-omar-rashida-tlaib-share-antisemitic-cartoon/

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) both reportedly shared an antisemitic cartoon by an artist who participated in Iran’s Holocaust denial contest on their respective Instagram accounts on Friday, according to Forward editor Batya Ungar-Sargon.
Ungar-Sargon noticed that Omar and Tlaib had each shared the image on their Instagram “stories.” Both were barred from entering Israel Thursday because of their support for the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement. Tlaib then applied for a humanitarian visa so she could visit her grandmother in a Palestinian village, promising not to promote boycotts of Israel while traveling there. Her request was granted, but she then turned down the offer Friday, claiming that Israel was trying to silence her.

The cartoon Omar and Tlaib reportedly shared shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with his hand over Tlaib’s mouth, and U.S. President Donald Trump with his hand over Omar’s mouth. Both leaders are shushing the congresswomen. A Star of David — the symbol of the Jewish faith — appears in the center of the image, implying that Jews are responsible for the act of silencing.

The image is antisemitic on its face. The theme of Jews controlling world leaders, who in turn do their bidding, especially in suppressing criticism, has been a common theme in antisemitic propaganda since Nazi Germany, and remains a frequent feature of antisemitic cartoons in the Arab and Muslim world. The New York Times faced criticism for a similar antisemitic cartoon it published in its international edition in April.

As a Bernie supporter, I don't care at all. I disagree with any kind of ethno-nationalism, especially one that requires ethnic cleansing, but I don't mind people agreeing with an interesting point incidentally made by a racist, terrorist, communist dude. I probably agree with some of the Nazis' ideas on animal rights and better managing our environmental impact.

In fact, there's plenty of destructive shit Trump is doing that we'd probably be much wiser spending our time focusing on than whom he's retweeting.

With the GOP they have to focus on this stuff or manufacture outrage because otherwise they've got nothing. These are two women who refused big donor money, are genuinely trying to serve working class interests, and despite their religion have supported only socially liberal policies; they're genuine populists and their motives are transparent and fairly pure, agree or not. I'm not wild about the idea of more economic immigration from the developing world but I don't care too much as long as they integrate, and honestly the Republicans aren't going to change that, their donors like more plentiful and cheap labor, they're going to continue to allow as much legal migration as they can get away with

Can you cite any actual media articles they used and how they ranked them?

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/trump-qanon-impending-judgment-day-behind-facebook-fueled-rise-epoch-n1044121

By the numbers, there is no bigger advocate of President Donald Trump on Facebook than The Epoch Times.

The small New York-based nonprofit news outlet has spent more than $1.5 million on about 11,000 pro-Trump advertisements in the last six months, according to data from Facebook’s advertising archive — more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself, and more than most Democratic presidential candidates have spent on their own campaigns.

Those video ads — in which unidentified spokespeople thumb through a newspaper to praise Trump, peddle conspiracy theories about the “Deep State,” and criticize “fake news” media — strike a familiar tone in the online conservative news ecosystem. The Epoch Times looks like many of the conservative outlets that have gained followings in recent years.

But it isn’t.

Behind the scenes, the media outlet’s ownership and operation is closely tied to Falun Gong, a Chinese spiritual community with the stated goal of taking down China’s government.

It’s that motivation that helped drive the organization toward Trump, according to interviews with former Epoch Times staffers, a move that has been both lucrative and beneficial for its message.

Former practitioners of Falun Gong told NBC News that believers think the world is headed toward a judgment day, where those labeled “communists” will be sent to a kind of hell, and those sympathetic to the spiritual community will be spared. Trump is viewed as a key ally in the anti-communist fight, former Epoch Times employees said.

What’s the consensus on this? I see protests and protestors against the supposed organ harvesting even in my backwater university here. There has to be something going on

Part of the political strategy of the Epoch Times is to counter Chinese anti-Trump PSYOPs. The CCP would rather not have Trump in office, so their recourse is to direct American citizens to vote against him.

Bump, I see newspapers in my neighborhoods. I’ll pick one up now.

Federal prosecutors said the suspect charged in the Capital One data breach, Paige Thompson, may have hacked more than 30 other organizations.
Thompson, a former Amazon employee, was arrested last month after the FBI alleged she was behind the breach that exposed data contained in more than 100 million Capital One credit applications.

Federal prosecutors say the suspect charged in a massive data breach at Capital One may have hacked more than 30 other organizations. Paige A. Thompson, a 33-year-old former Amazon employee from Seattle, was arrested last month after the FBI said she obtained personal information from more than 100 million Capital One credit applications. There is no evidence the data was sold or distributed to others.

In a memorandum filed ahead of a detention hearing, rescheduled from Thursday to Aug. 22, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle said servers found in Thompson's bedroom contained data stolen from more than 30 unnamed companies, educational institutions and other entities.

Prosecutors said much of that data did not appear to contain personal identifying information. Investigators are still working to identify the affected organizations. Thompson's attorney did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Wednesday.

A man wearing a mask shaped like an old TV set spent a night leaving old TV sets on the porches of over 50 homes in Virginia this past weekend, and no one has any idea why.

In what has been described as a real-life episode of The Twilight Zone, a mysterious character wearing a fake TV set on his head spent a night carefully placing over 50 old TV sets on the porches of dozens of houses in Henrico County, Virginia. When residents woke up on Sunday they just found the bizarre gifts in front of their front doors and started looking around for whoever left it. Then they started calling police to report the unusual gifts. As of yet, no one knows the reason behind “TV Santa Claus”‘ August delivery run.

No one really knows if there was one deliveryman or more, as apart from some freaky footage captured by residents’ smart doorbells, there were no reported sighting of suspicious activity in Henrico County. Police think the person caught on camera may have had a helper wearing the same outfit, but they can’t be sure.

The deliveryman filmed by one of the residents’ smart doorbell is wearing a blue jumpsuit, brown boots, black gloves, and a big mask shaped like an old TV set. He can be seen dropping a TV set on the porch before turning around and walking away, but not before waving to the camera in a really creepy way. Still, the police think he poses no threat and have announced that they don’t plan to investigate further.

It's definitely some kind of set-up or viral stunt. The police response is way too chill. I mean, if I dumped 50 TVs on somebody's property I'd be charged with illegal dumping and trespassing.

i think theyre just playing it down for what they know isnt a valid use of police resources. they did say to contact police if it happens again, I imagine at which point they would take it more seriously for beign a public nuisance
