> But what really confuses me is they seem to think the MSM is trying to cover this up, when they definitely have not been doing that. Makes no sense.
They're simplifying a serious problem. the MSM is claiming that it's ridiculous to think Foul Play was involved and has made dozens of articles and sketches over the past 24 hours painting all suspicion as to what happened as a conspiracy theory..
Pol calls it a 'coverup' because they can't speak in rational terms and can only communicate in buzzwords. They cannot rationally discuss any serious topic because they feel as if they must be emotionally invested in everything they discuss, which results in hyperbole and making statements which aren't true.

Oh I agree the circumstances are suspicious, I think it's just funny to contrast >>445554 with >>445437 when a staffing problem is the most basic explanation without diving deep into the conspiracy hole. The amusing part is the logbook can also be explained by lazy staff, especially since one of them was a veteran who volunteered to go back for extra pay. It smells like the type of guy who would write "yeah I checked on the guy" and instead spent his time watching the game (as >>445963 says) because he assumed nothing will go wrong. Obviously this has to be looked into, but a mundane (but seriously troubling) explanation still exists, which baring an obvious smoking gun of criminal conspiracy (ex. the guard was paid to forge the log book) is the default answer, as boring as it is.

>the MSM is claiming that it's ridiculous to think Foul Play was involved and has made dozens of articles [...] over the past 24 hours painting all suspicion as to what happened as a conspiracy theory.
It IS ridiculous to jump from "Epstein dead" to "[person I don't like] is behind it," which is generally what the MSM is pushing against, not the general concept of foul play. It's generally good reporting etiquette to not speculate on foul play when no direct evidence of such has been presented, and instead ask pertinent questions so the viewer can be aware of the possibility of foul play and draw their own conclusions ("why is there a discrepancy with the log book?"). Clearly everyone wants answers, but it's not good journalism to jump from A to Z where you claim [X] did it without any evidence.
>...and sketches...
Late night comedians don't give a fuck and just do whatever's funny, so dunking on the President of the United States for immediately diving into the Clinton conspiracy hole is routine business for them.

The Trump administration has known since at least April that alleged white supremacists were responsible for every single act of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018, yet not only took no action to combat the growing right wing violent extremism, but actually substantially reduced or even eliminated funding and programs that combat white supremacist extremism, violence, and terrorism – and then blocked the data from reaching the hands of Congress.

Mass murder is. Mass shooting is not. They are distinct terms and news agencies take full advantage of the lack of legal definition to get views

>I'm using the FBI definition of mass murders
Than why are you calling then mass shootings? If you want to use that definition, you should use the proper term and not equate the two.

True, he is a mass shooter. No one but you claimed he was a mass murderer.

>Verizon will sell the image-centric blogging website Tumblr to Automattic, owner of the blogging tools suite WordPress, according to the Wall Street Journal. The terms of the sale were not disclosed, but Axios reports the amount was "well below" $20 million.
>That would be a staggering discount against the $1.1 billion paid for Tumblr by Yahoo in 2013 as part of an ambitious turnaround effort by Yahoo's then-CEO Marissa Mayer. But Mayer’s turnaround foundered, and the Tumblr deal in particular was a flop. By early 2016, Yahoo had written down Tumblr’s value by $230 million, and by 2017, all of Yahoo was sold to Verizon for just $4.48 billion.

Eh, Tumblr was a shitty platform for artists or galleries anyway. The only reason people used it was because it was popular. Now that they have established themselves on other sites they may be unwilling to migrate back. If reuptake rate doesn't make up for lost ad revenue (no family friendly, big advertisers) or being delisted by Apple, than it would be stupid to reneg the policy.

In what may have been a technical glitch or a clever joke, Apple’s digital voice assistant Siri referred to CNN host Chris Cuomo as Fredo — the weak-minded Corleone brother from The Godfather movies — on Tuesday before the anomaly was apparently fixed.
Apple users began noticing the glitch Tuesday afternoon when they asked the question, “Siri, how old is Chris Cuomo?” Siri responded by saying that “Fredo Cuomo is 49 years old.” The display also referred to the CNN host as “Fredo Cuomo.”

Valiente, an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador, was charged with misdemeanor careless driving on revoked license

He made headlines in January when he had sought refuge in a church to avoid getting deported

Florida police said they arrested a man Monday who allegedly warned people to stay away from Walmart next week and that he would be getting back his AR-15 gun.

Richard Clayton, 26, was arrested after allegedly posting the threat on Facebook, the Florida Department of Law announced Saturday.

Investigators said Clayton “appears to believe in the white supremacist ideology” and said he had a history of posting threats on Facebook with fictitious accounts.

An investigation began on Aug. 6 after Clayton allegedly posted the threat to Facebook, the department said.

“3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week,” police say Clayton wrote.

That doesn't say anything. He might be a Target fan. And speaking of Target word usage in angry postings, so if I was to post, say, "Fuck this country! Fuck you all! I'm going to Target."

>President Trump’s re-election ads have repeated his inflammatory claims about an “invasion” on the southern border — language that is under scrutiny after the El Paso shooting.

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s re-election campaign has harnessed Facebook advertising to push the idea of an “invasion” at the southern border, amplifying the fear-inducing language about immigrants that he has also voiced at campaign rallies and on Twitter.

Since January, Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign has posted more than 2,000 ads on Facebook that include the word “invasion” — part of a barrage of advertising focused on immigration, a dominant theme of his re-election messaging. A review of Mr. Trump’s tweets also found repeated references to an “invasion,” while his 2016 campaign advertising heavily featured dark warnings about immigrants breaching America’s borders.

Mr. Trump’s language on immigration — particularly his use of the word “invasion” — is under scrutiny after the mass shooting in El Paso on Saturday. The suspect in that shooting, which left 22 people dead, appeared to be the author of a manifesto declaring that “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

Divisive and often false claims about undocumented immigrants have been a cornerstone of Mr. Trump’s political strategy for years, from the “build the wall” chants at his 2016 campaign rallies to his warnings about a migrant caravan ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

In his re-election campaign, Mr. Trump has spent an estimated $1.25 million on Facebook ads about immigration since late March, according to data from Bully Pulpit Interactive, a Democratic communications firm that is tracking the digital advertising of presidential candidates. Those ads represent a significant portion of the roughly $5.6 million that Mr. Trump has spent on Facebook advertising during that period.

>new jobs created by trump administration policies add 100 billion in new tax revenue to economy
That's objectively false. Capital investment has not increased since the tax cuts. Capital investments are what the GOP keep convincing us trickle down economics are going to do - spurn corporations to take the money they saved on taxes and invest it back into wages and job expansion. It hasn't happened. Instead, they took the money and did with it what they always do - add it to their already massive stockpiles of cash and purchase stock buybacks for their rich investors. The amount of jobs added to the market and unemployment rates are not reliable indicators of economic health. It doesn't matter how many jobs are added to the market if none of them pay a livable wage. Wage rates are what indicates private sector economic health, anon, and wages have been stagnating for 40 years. Corporate profit and productivity have increased by over 85% the last 40 years and wage rates have increased by less than 7%. Pull your head out of your ass, /pol/lack. You're getting fucked but you don't notice because you're too busy cutting off your own nose to spite your face.

>only for it to be bled away by illegals seeking free medical care and welfare
The greatest trick the ultra-rich of this country pulled on the American public was convincing the working class that poor people were the cause of their economic woes. The GOP is tickled pink that you're too busy pointing the fingers at illegals to notice that they are literally nuking the middle class and damning your descendants to a permanent underclass. Entitlements isn't bankrupting our country, anon. It never has. Corporate greed is.

wait... why are you posting this? This is an old story. the Republicans promised that the majority of the tax cuts would go to the Middle Class, and that big businesses would have incentive to bring their overseas hoard back into the US, where it could be taxed at a friendlier rate.

Surprise, Motherfuckers! the Poor and Middle classes lost a ton of tax breaks, and wound up paying more money, while Big Business didn't repatriate shit, and just kept the money from the tax breaks.

Yeah, the IRS got more money, because the Republicans LIED, while the rich are laughing all the way to the bank. I didn't read the entire article, but I do hope it mentions how this has added almost a trillion to the deficit.

Where is the original screen cap?

A social media post detailing the death of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein made well before the official announcement did not come from within the New York City Fire Department, officials said Tuesday.

BuzzFeed News first reported that a message was posted on 4chan, an anonymous message board that is popular with far-right trolls, at 8:16 a.m. That's about 38 minutes before an ABC News reporter broke the news of Epstein's death.

"Dont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago," the post read, along with a picture of Pepe the frog, a meme that has been co-opted by the alt-right. "Screencap this.”

Known as the West Van Buren Area (WVBA) groundwater plume, the impacted area extends from McDowell Road to Buckeye Road, and from 7th Avenue to beyond 79th Avenue.

The water beneath a large swath of Phoenix isn’t fit to drink.

A plume of toxic chemicals has tainted the groundwater for decades, and it's now at the center of a bitter fight over how the aquifer should be cleaned up and what should happen to the water in the future.

At issue are questions about why the cleanup has proceeded slowly, which government agency should lead the effort, and whether the polluted water, which isn't flowing to household faucets, is releasing chemicals into the air at levels that may pose health risks for people in the area.

Neocon, is not a true republican.

A Texas woman left her infant daughter in a running car while she knocked back shots at a nightclub early Sunday morning, according to police who say the suspect spewed threats and racial epithets when confronted by cops.

Around 1:45 AM on July 28, a patrolman was dispatched to the TrackSide Night Club in Copperas Cove, a central Texas city, in reference to a “1 year old child left inside a vehicle.” The responding officer spotted the child asleep in a safety seat in the rear of a 2009 Buick Limited, which was unlocked.

The cop then went inside the nightclub and located the child’s mother, Samantha Grace Vaughan, 26, who initially claimed that she “only went inside to pee.” In an arrest affidavit, the officer noted that Vaughan, seen at right, smelled of booze.

When asked if she had consumed any alcohol, Vaughan reportedly copped to drinking two shots. Apparently sensing her impending legal trouble, Vaughan then yelled, “You will not take my child and place her with a fucking nigger.”

After being handcuffed, Vaughan told police that she went to the club to pick up her husband, and “sat with him while she consumed two shots.” A subsequent breath text recorded Vaughan’s blood alcohol content at nearly twice the .08 limit.

According to the court affidavit, Vaughan resisted arrest and thrashed about in the rear of a police cruiser, smashing her forehead “into the steel bar twice causing a small laceration to her head.”

While en route to police headquarters, Vaughan allegedly made a series of threats against the arresting officer, including “I hope someone slits your god damn jugular and a nigger fucks your children in the ass” and “I hope someone fucks your children in the ass and makes them choke on nigger dicks.”

Vaughan was charged with child endangerment, resisting arrest, and making terroristic threats to a public servant.
