Winter Haven man arrested after threatening to shoot members of Congress, their families

No.297673 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
A Winter Haven man was arrested on Thursday after posting on his Facebook page that he was going to shoot members of Congress and their families, depending on which way the Supreme Court justice confirmation vote went.

According to the affidavit, the threats included the following statements:

"Just bought 12 boxes of hollow point 50 caliber bullets....have plenty of ammo for my sniper rifle and bought a suppressor. Have made sure all my arrangements have been made and care for my dogs because I will not be coming home. Have made extra precautions and added more supplies in the tunnel under my house in case local or federal law enforcement tries to stop me." (Note, there are no tunnels under his house)
"Getting ready if Kav is not confirmed....whoever I think is to blame may God have mercy on their soul."
"Just cleaned out the gun shop where I get guns, ammo, and target practice. Bought all their 50 cal hollow points. I expect to be confronted and I will be ready to kill and ready to die."
"I am about to accept an offer on my house just to get more money to fund my plan to kill Democrat office holders and their families. It is all I think about night and day. I even wake up in the middle of the night, most nights, thinking about it. Ultimately I will be killed but hopefully I will have killed many many liberal [sic] elected in Washington."
"I can tell it seems I will be sacrificing my life for my country. But I am ready and will know who needs to be killed after the vote to put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. I believe democrats need to be afraid to do what they are doing right now and weak republicans that do not vote for him need to pay with their lives."
"I can't do this by myself! Need more conservatives going into liberals' homes at night killing them in their sleep!"

Nigerian Army Uses Trump’s Words to Justify Fatal Shooting of Rock-Throwing Protesters

No.307957 ViewReplyOriginalReport

DAKAR, Senegal — The Nigerian Army, part of a military criticized for rampant human rights abuses, on Friday used the words of President Trump to justify its fatal shootings of rock-throwing protesters.

Soldiers fired this Monday on a march of about 1,000 Islamic Shiite activists who had blocked traffic on the outskirts of the capital, Abuja. Videos that circulated on social media showed several protesters hurling rocks at heavily armed soldiers who then shot fleeing demonstrators in the back.

Mr. Trump is popular among groups in Nigeria’s mostly Christian south that admire his tough talk against Islamic extremism. Though a polarizing figure, some people praise what they regard as his straightforwardness and frank talk, despite his reported insult last year when he said Nigerians in the United States would never “go back to their huts” in Africa.

Star Trek’s William Shatner Tweets in Support of Vitalik Buterin

No.311132 ViewReplyOriginalReport
William Shatner’s positive Tweet posted yesterday, Nov. 7 about Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin has led to backlash from crypto Twitter about the alleged centralization of Ethereum’s network.

Shatner is a Canadian actor who became a sci-fi icon for his portrayal of James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise, in the American television series Star Trek. Since then, the actor has become arguably equally as well-known for his role in television commercials as the Priceline Pitchman.

The former spaceship captain turned Priceline spokesman has an audience of around 2.52 million followers on Twitter.

At the outset, Shatner’s thumbs-up Tweet provoked an antagonistic response from crypto Twitter user “premine apologist,” who denounced Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin as a “literal scammer” for his alleged failure to ensure full decentralization on the network.

Shatner quipped to “premine apologist”: “as a coder — go develop your own blockchain technology where you can be 1000% sure of decentralization. Or shove money in a mattress. I hear that’s only overseen by the bed bug community.”

Inaccuracies in Vox Article on International Reaction to Midterms

>Italy’s right-wing populist leader Prime Minister Matteo Salvini
>Germany's interior minister Heiko Maas
Except neither of those things are true. Matteo Salvini is interior minister/deputy prime minister, not prime minister. Giuseppe Conte is prime minister. And Heiko Maas isn't interior minister, he's foreign minister. Horst Seehofer is interior minister. Does Vox even have fact-checkers? How did these blatant inaccuracies get through the editing process?

'They all look alike': Hillary makes remark after confusing Holder and Booker

>Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during an event over the weekend teased the interviewer who confused former Attorney General Eric Holder and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).
>Recode's Kara Swisher during a Q&A asked Clinton, "What do you think of Cory Booker … saying, ‘Kick them in the shins’?"
>She was likely referring to Holder's recent comment that when Republicans go low, "we should kick them." Holder has faced widespread backlash for the comment, which members of the GOP said amounted to a call for violence, though Holder has insisted it was a metaphor.
>"That was Eric Holder," Clinton replied, correcting Swisher.
>"I know they all look alike," she joked, to a burst of laughter from the audience.
>"No, they don’t," Swisher quickly replied, then added: "Oh, well done."
>Holder and Booker are both black men.

What did she mean by this?

Unemployment Is Haunting Sweden Years After the Immigration Boom

No.308589 ViewReplyOriginalReport
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-02/unemployment-is-haunting-sweden-years-after-the-immigration-boom

Sweden has an unemployment problem.

Even amid the longest expansion in four decades, unemployment in the largest Nordic economy still hasn’t got back to pre-financial crisis levels. The jobless rate is hovering at more than 6 percent, far above the level in its Scandinavian neighbors and in global economic powerhouses such as Germany and the U.S.


“Sweden stands out,” said Robert Bergqvist, chief economist at lender SEB AB. “If you look at unemployment, the curve in Sweden has actually pointed upward, while in many other comparable countries it is falling to levels we haven’t seen in maybe 40 or 50 years.”

That spells trouble as domestic and European economic growth is showing signs of cooling. At the same time, the country is in the midst of a full-blown political crisis with no viable government almost two months after an inconclusive election.

Sweden has been running large surpluses, but its government finances are vulnerable to growing unemployment given its generous benefit system.

While unemployment among native Swedes is at 4 percent, the figure for foreign born is more than 15 percent. According to economists the big mismatch between the needs of employers and the skills of job seekers has increased the risk of unemployment turning structural.

Reality for the foreign born, which now make up about 20 percent of the working age population, may also be worse than the official statistics suggest.

“The newly arrived are required to register at the employment service in order to get their welfare benefits,” said Roger Josefsson, chief economist at Macrobond. “After registering they are considered to be part of the labor force.”
