President Trump lashed out at a reporter during a pool spray Thursday, calling the journalist a "lightweight" after the president was pressed about his election defeat.

Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason repeatedly asked Trump if he would concede the election to Joe Biden if the Electoral College votes in favor of Biden, eventually asking Trump to just answer the question. Trump responded firmly, "Don't talk to me that way."

Trump interrupted as the reporter attempted to interject and apologize, saying, "I'm the president of the United States. Don't ever talk to the president that way," before Trump said he would move on to someone else's question.
Before addressing Mason directly, Trump began to provide a lengthy response to the question, during which he reiterated his claims of election fraud and compared the election to one in a third-world country.

Trump has engaged with Mason before. In September, the two had an exchange during which the president requested that Mason remove his mask while asking a question, which the reporter declined to do.

The pool spray, in which the White House invites reporters to observe and sometimes ask questions of the president, marked the first time Trump has taken questions from press since Biden was announced president-elect earlier this month.

> That is completely unhinged.
That's why he's so popular with his base, he acts so much like them that they see in him an affirmation that they can behave the way they want to and still get as far as the White House. It's become little different from a cult.
>This is a well documented tactic of the federal government
It's also a well documented tactic of right wing terrorist militia cells, and they've actually killed more people than any other domestic terror group. The idea that every foiled plot is a hoax and every successful one is a false flag is the peak of denial.
No its the assertion that the fbi are repeat offenders of manufacturing terrorist plots by entrapment.
It is no different than not believing a crack addict trying to sell you a car radio didnt steal said radio.

I dont know how you can listen to this guy and not agree that hes mentally ill.
He literally sounds like sam hyde going on about how he would defend himself against lena dunham or reporters outside their homes.

And obviously the defense is playing the crazy card but one should point out the fbi had two agents who completely infiltrated the team and yet their evidence consists of ideas being thrown around and withmer being "left out in the middle of a lake"?
This sounds more like they dont have a lot of evidence that doesnt tie back to their entrapment and have to work with scraps.

Social network Parler has allegedly hidden posts on its website that are tagged as #WriteInTrumpForGA. The hashtag is encouraging disgruntled supporters of President Donald Trump to write the president in rather than any candidate for the upcoming Senate Runoff elections.

The hashtag originated in a Super PAC with GOP ties.The Committee for American Sovereignty, connected to political consultant Roger Stone, launched a website calling for people to "Hack the Runoff," and write in Trump. The website states:

>With enough write-ins in the Georgia senate race, we can tilt the balance in Georgia in Trump's favor! If we can do this, we have a real chance at getting these RINO [Republican In Name Only] senators to act on the illegitimate and corrupt election presided over by a Democrat party that is invested in the Communist takeover of Our Great Nation. We will not stop fighting for you, the American Patriot, against the evils of Socialism and inferior Religions. This is a Christian Nation and will be as long as we fight, together, for our sovereignty.

A user on Twitter shared a screenshot of Parler's search screen. The screengrab shows no results for #WriteInTrumpforGA. However, a Newsweek search on Parler shows that there are 21 "Parleys" for the aforementioned hashtag, six for a #WriteInTrumpforSenateGA, and 52 for #WriteinTrumpGeorgiaRunoff.

While there are only a few Parleys in each category, the one with the most posts is the #WriteInTrump hashtag, which has 158 Parleys. Some Parler users also shared similar screenshots alleging that the social network was censoring the posts. "We need to #boycottgeorgiarunoffs #boycottgarunoff #boycottga #boycottgarunoffs and write in #trump2020 if you want to send a MESSAGE to RINOS if you are a real believer. Otherwise, the establishment gears will just keep churning, churning, churning. This is our chance," one post read.

After one man was snatched off the street for tracking protests online, he spent four years in custody and remains under close police watch

By Chun Han Wong
Nov. 27, 2020 11:56 am ET

On a summer day in 2016, a posse of men surrounded Lu Yuyu on a street in China’s southwestern city of Dali. He said they wrestled him into a black sedan and slid a shroud over his head. His girlfriend was pushed into a second car, screaming his name.

Mr. Lu had for years posted a running online tally of protests and demonstrations in China that was closely read by activists and academics around the world, as well as by government censors. That made him a target.

While China’s Communist Party has long punished people seen as threats to its rule, government authorities under Chinese leader Xi Jinping have engaged in the most relentless pursuit of dissenters since the crackdown on the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests, according to academics and activists.

“Over the past eight years under Xi, authorities have become hypersensitive to the publicizing of protests, social movements and mass resistance,” said Wu Qiang, a former politics lecturer at Beijing’s Tsinghua University.

“Lu’s data provided a window into social trends in China,” Mr. Wu said, and that made him a threat to the party. China Labour Bulletin, a Hong Kong-based group that promotes worker rights, used Mr. Lu’s posts as the primary source for its “Strike Map,” an interactive online graphic tallying worker unrest.

In November 2016, the journalist advocacy group Reporters Without Borders and French television broadcaster TV5Monde jointly awarded Mr. Lu and Ms. Li a press-freedom prize for “their commitment to freely and independently-reported information in China,” work the couple did at a high personal cost.

Officials visited Mr. Lu the following April, he said, to let him know Ms. Li had been convicted and given a suspended sentence. Mr. Lu said officials hoped he, too, would plead guilty. A copy of a Chinese court document related to Mr. Lu’s case, viewed by Journal, said Ms. Li had confessed.

Mr. Lu stood trial in June 2017. Prosecutors accused him of spreading false information. Mr. Lu, who denied wrongdoing, was convicted and sentenced to four years. His appeals were denied, according to court records.

In prison, Mr. Lu lived in a 12-man cell and worked 10-hour shifts sewing jeans, skirts and other apparel. He was paid the equivalent of a few dollars a month, he said.

Prison life wore on Mr. Lu. Last year, he suffered hallucinations and bouts of paranoia, he said. Prison officials offered counseling, but his symptoms persisted. About two months before his release, Mr. Lu said, he received a judicial notice forbidding him from setting foot in Beijing, Shanghai or Xinjiang.

No escape

After leaving prison, Mr. Lu moved in temporarily with his brother in their hometown. Police showed up to get his cellphone number. An official with the police department’s political-security arm would call him to ask where he was and what he was up to.

Mr. Lu moved to an apartment in the city of Zunyi, near his home village. Local police found him within a week, he said. He returned to social media with a new Twitter account, circumventing Chinese internet controls that block the platform. He listed his location as “hell” and posted an account of his detention and trial.
Mr. Lu tried to track down Ms. Li and eventually reached her mother. She said her daughter had married. Mr. Lu insisted on speaking to Ms. Li, and that night she called, sobbing as she apologized and said she had a new life, Mr. Lu recounted. She couldn’t be reached for comment.

In early August, police issued Mr. Lu a warning for using a virtual private network to circumvent Chinese internet controls. They seized his mobile phone and computer, which were later returned. He said police told him not to speak to news media.

Mr. Lu said he no longer felt safe in Zunyi. A couple of weeks later, he began traveling, first within Guizhou. He posted photos from his trips on social media, including shots of the lush cliffs along Guizhou’s Wuyang River and cattle on a grassy mountain in Fujian province.

Zunyi police kept close track of his whereabouts. An official would call him and ask, “What are you doing?” The phone calls and questions were repeated every time he reached a new city. Mr. Lu knew it was pointless to lie.

In late September, while Mr. Lu was staying at a friend’s apartment in the southern city of Guangzhou, officers called the friend and asked to meet. Mr. Lu then moved to a second friend’s apartment. The following day, police called the second friend who alerted Mr. Lu. It was too late. The officers were already at the door. They had made the call from downstairs.

The officers told Mr. Lu he had to leave Guangzhou. When he refused, they drove him to a police station, collected data from his phone and hauled him to the train station, he said. Hours later, the police texted a request: Send a selfie to prove he had reached his destination.

Police and justice-bureau officials in Zunyi regularly summon Mr. Lu to ask about his plans and warn him against circumventing internet controls.
While Mr. Lu has enough savings to survive for several months, he said he hopes he can secure a job soon. Police surveillance makes it tough to leave his hometown, where job opportunities are limited. Depression at times keeps him from sleeping more than a couple of hours a night, he said. In late October, his landlord, under pressure from authorities, told him he had to move.

Mr. Lu is comforted by his work documenting tens of thousands of protests, even if he can’t return to that role. “I’d just end up in jail again,” he said. “You can tell people how brave you are, but in reality you wouldn’t achieve anything.”

Harvey Weinstein is in isolation with 101-degree temperature, and doctors believe he has COVID ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Weinstein is "doing poorly" with various health issues ... some of which point to a coronavirus infection.

Our sources say Weinstein was tested Tuesday morning and doctors are awaiting results, but they are confident enough he has COVID that they have placed him in isolation for 72 hours.

We're told if the test comes back positive, which they expect, he'll be transferred to the prison hospital.

Our sources say Weinstein has various health problems which complicate his current illness. The sources are clear ... he has various symptoms that are very serious.

There were reports Weinstein had coronavirus back in March, but our sources say he was never officially diagnosed.

Early one morning in mid-November, Trisha Cunningham, the president of North Texas Food Bank, arrived at a sprawling fairground in southern Dallas that hosts the annual Texas State Fair. Four lines of cars snaked for miles, from the entrance toward the skyscrapers downtown. Some of the drivers had arrived the night before and slept in their cars, waiting for a box of food that would help get them through Thanksgiving.

By the end of this year, more than 50 million people could experience food insecurity, according to Feeding America, the country’s largest hunger-relief organization. That’s one in six Americans and one in four children—nearly a 50 percent increase from 2019. A Northwestern University study in June found that food needs had doubled nationally, and tripled for households with children. The pandemic has laid bare how many people are one paycheck or medical bill away from hunger.

In October, Feeding America’s network of food banks and pantries distributed some 548 million meals, up 52 percent from an average month before the pandemic. In November, with the holidays approaching, it may be more. When the fairgrounds gates opened in Dallas, volunteers waved cars through rows of orange cones to receive a 15-pound box of produce, dry goods, a frozen turkey, and a loaf of bread. In a typical year, the North Texas Food Bank holiday distribution serves around 500 people. This year, when the gates closed, they’d sent 8,500 people home with more than half a million pounds of food. Before the pandemic, the food bank’s clientele were largely employed people who needed extra help to make ends meet. Now, many of them told Cunningham they’d lost their jobs. And a third of those being served, she estimates, had never needed assistance before.

“People are seeing hunger like they’ve never seen it before,” she says.

Holy shit, zoomers are doing something right for once. Fuck sports!
>On any given night, in living rooms across America, the television could be tuned to the big game, mom and dad glued to the action, children nearby. But as most any parent can attest, those children are likely to be virtually somewhere else - an app, a game, a social media feed, perhaps, lost in a smartphone where the scrolling never ends. The big game serves as background noise, if that.

>The bulky and bankable U.S. sports industry, built on towers of cash and lucrative television contracts, is confronting a Generation Z problem. The nation's youngest cohort is fundamentally different from the generations that preceded it. Having grown up with smartphones in their pockets, its members eschew traditional television viewing and subscribe to digital habits that make grooming a new generation of sports fans a challenge.

>That challenge is being met with a sense of urgency in some corners of the sports world and a sense of alarm in others, according to team and league officials, social scientists, research analysts and marketing specialists who focus on Generation Z. Failing to hook young people might not devastate today's bottom line, but it threatens to muddle the future of every league, every team and every sport.

>"If you lose a generation, it destroys value and the connective tissue," said Ted Leonsis, principal owner of Washington-based teams that compete in the NBA, NFL and WNBA. "It's what some of the big sports leagues are nervous about. Could we lose a generation because we didn't give them access and the products and services they want?"

Was scientist’s killing the opening shot of a Trump-led war on Iran?



The assassination on Friday of Iran’s leading nuclear scientist has heightened suspicions t hat Donald Trump, in cahoots with hardline Israeli and Saudi allies, may be trying to lure the Tehran regime into an all-out confrontation in the dying days of his presidency. Trump’s four-year-long Iranian vendetta is approaching a climax – and he still has the power and the means to inflict lasting damage.

>Kyle Rittenhouse, in a jailhouse interview, said he used stimulus money to get a gun. The first man he shot had just left a psychiatric hospital.

>In a summer roiled by protests for racial justice, Kenosha, Wis., moved into the national spotlight in August after a White police officer shot a Black man named Jacob Blake seven times in the back.

>Peaceful protests during the day were followed by rioting and civil unrest at night. Just before midnight on Aug. 25, tensions peaked when a 17-year-old named Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum. Moments later, Rittenhouse shot two other men, one fatally.

>Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with multiple counts of homicide and weapons offenses, but right-wing groups have rallied to his cause, celebrating him as a hero who sought to protect Kenosha from destructive rioting and who fired in self-defense. The events have become a litmus test for a deeply divided nation.

>A Washington Post examination of video and police records, along with other documents, sheds new light on the mindsets of the two people principally involved - one a gun enthusiast who thought of himself as a medic, the other a homeless man with a criminal record who was discharged that day from a psychiatric hospital.

>The Post found that Rittenhouse, who was too young to buy a rifle, had arranged for an adult friend to buy the weapon for him using money Rittenhouse had received from a government stimulus program.

>The Post interviewed Rittenhouse, who spoke publicly for the first time since his arrest. He said he did not regret that he had a gun that night. "I feel I had to protect myself," he said. "I would have died that night if I didn't."

If you're not an American then it's really not clear why you're running your mouth off about a legal system you don't know jack shit about.
He violated police curfew, and Wisconsin law states that one cannot plea self-defense if their illegal conduct lead up to the altercation
>939.48(2)(a) (a) A person who engages in unlawful conduct of a type likely to provoke others to attack him or her and thereby does provoke an attack is not entitled to claim the privilege of self-defense against such attack, except when the attack which ensues is of a type causing the person engaging in the unlawful conduct to reasonably believe that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm.

Self-defense privilege is not affected by illegal activity unless you were doing something which was likely to provoke an attack (which breaking curfew is not) and even then it only raises the bar to "feared death or great bodily harm", which is already the standard under which he was going to be judged since it is the standard for the deployment of lethal force.
You can write that up and send it to him when he gets to prison, your great words of wisdom will no doubt be really soothing in between daily buttblastings.

It's more likely that she'd get disarmed and have it used against her than for her to legitimately use it.
They (Sen. Evie Hudak) said the same thing to Amanda Collins after she was raped on a college parking lot - less than a hundred yards away from the campus police station - where she wasn't allowed to carry a gun.

And that's bullshit. Maybe the guy would have took her gun and used it against her (either way she got raped). OR maybe he would have got shot - and not lived to rape another woman and then rape and murder one more girl before he finally got thrown in jail AGAIN.

But thanks to fucking faggots like you who want to ban guns everywhere...

What is happening now in Paris cannot be called anything other than a massacre. Groups of anarchists, which had split up, concentrating not only on large areas, were hunted down by the police. They are generously watered from water cannons, despite the fact that it is very cold outside, but this does not cool the ardor of shareholders. The confrontation between the protesters and the police turns into a kind of cat and mouse.

Due to the endless use of tear gas, the police themselves lose formation, get confused in the smoke and add chaos to what is happening. Involuntarily breaking up into small groups, law enforcement officers are often targeted by anarchist groups. They are hit with sticks, stones, bottles and other revolutionary props. In such a situation, the police no longer think about maintaining law and order, but only try to protect themselves. Nevertheless, about forty law enforcement officers have already received various injuries, many of them seriously wounded.

The riots are spreading into small streets that give the impression of being bombed. Absolutely everything has been destroyed, shop windows and overturned cars are burning, garbage cans give off a stench.

Observers note the good coherence of the actions of the protesters, the proven technique of their maneuvers. This is not the first time they have trashed Paris with luxury cars, shops and restaurants, banks and offices. Today the Bank of France has come under another attack, its facade has been set on fire, and this time not by a crazy "artist", but by bandit groups.

The world’s largest multidisciplinary survey on research integrity is in danger of falling short of its goals after two-thirds of invited institutions declined to collaborate, citing the sensitivity of the subject and fearing negative publicity. That left researchers leading the DutchNational Survey on Research Integrityon their own to scrape many email addresses and solicit responses. The survey will close on 7 December, but the team has gathered responses from less than 15% of 40,000 targeted participants.

“It was supposed to be a collaborative effort, but it ended up as a satellite on its own in the Solar System, trying to send out signals,” says Gowri Gopalakrishna, a postdoctoral researcher at the Amsterdam University Medical Center (AUMC) who is coordinating the €800,000 survey.

Lex Bouter, who studies research methods and integrity at the Free University of Amsterdam (VU), began to plan the survey in 2016 to address a lack of data about questionable research practices and scientific misconduct. He wanted to ask all working academics in the Netherlands not just about how they conduct their research, but also about work habits, pressures, and other aspects of academic life. Bouter, a former VU president himself, assured the heads of other universities that the survey would not generate an institutional ranking of misbehavior.

The participating universities helped Gopalakrishna by providing staff email addresses and sending reminders to fill out the questionnaire. To get responses from researchers at the 10 other institutions, Gopalakrishna and her colleagues had to scrape email addresses and send out the surveys unannounced. “This resulted in many more bounced and unopened emails,” she says.

Even some researchers at the collaborating institutions, wary of phishing scams, didn’t open their emails, says AUMC epidemiologist Gerben ter Riet, a co-investigator on the survey. “Researchers are flooded with emails and flooded with surveys,” he says. “It’s extremely difficult to stand out with something legitimate.”

As of 24 November, 13.3% of researchers affiliated with collaborating institutions had responded to the request, versus 9.5% of those at noncollaborating institutions.

After 7 December, the team will have to determine how representative the sample is. Bouter still expects it will be of value. “I am kind of disappointed about the proceedings, but with over 5000 completed surveys this still is the largest survey so far.”
My sister is a doctor and they had a talk at their last congress about the 50% replication rate of 2/3 papers that were peer reviewed in the year before.q

They werent interested at all in talking about booting social sciences from the peer reviewal process who produced the studies but on how to frame the topic so that the public "doesnt lose faith in the integrity of the academic community as a whole".
Just to reiterate a 50% replication rate is the worst possible outcome because it proves that your theory has absolutley nothing to do with the subject matter at hand.

Btw just so you guys heard the nonsense before their solution is to claim that this two third mayority of papers are isolated cases of rare diseases that simply cant be replicated reliably because there are only a handful of patients with these afflictions worldwide and that a rejection of the process of peer reviewal were conspiratorial and an inherently anti science sentiment.

It comes as no suprise to anyone that 85% of the academic institutions outright refused to participate in the survey in any capacity.

Did you have a stroke while writing this? I can’t even understand what the point you’re trying to make is
Yes a literal anecdote. I never said you can quote me and nobody said this were a conspiracy. It literally cant be one if its held at a medical congress because its not secret. Its not about medical papers either you retard but the process of peer reviewal losing credibility due to non scientific fields being flooded with people who have to falsify their papers to graduate.
Also yes its a given that to diasolve the basis for many a persons academic career would be undesireable and until a solution is found the proplem is not to be exacerbated by telling the public that the boundries between academia and the unwashed/unverified masses is about as stable as you appear while you had that fit on your keyboard.
