China launches hotline for netizens to report 'illegal' history comments

No.824061 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
China’s cyber regulator has launched a hotline to report online comments that defame the ruling Communist Party and its history, vowing to crack down on “historical nihilists” ahead of the Party’s 100th anniversary in July.

The tip line allows people to report fellow netizens who “distort” the Party’s history, attack its leadership and policies, defame national heroes and “deny the excellence of advanced socialist culture” online, said a notice posted by an arm of the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) on Friday.

“We hope that the majority of Internet users will actively play their part in supervising society ... and enthusiastically report harmful information,” it said.

“Historical nihilism” is a phrase used in China to describe public doubt and scepticism over the Chinese Communist Party’s description of past events.

The notice did not specify what punishments would be dealt to people who are reported through the hotline, but netizens in China already face jail time and other legal punishments for posting content that is critical of the county’s leadership, policies and history.

Legal amendments released earlier this year stipulate that people who “insult, slander of infringe upon” the memory of China’s national heroes and martyrs face jail time of up to three years.

Last week, authorities in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu detained a 19-year-old man after making “insulting” comments online about Japan’s 1937 occupation of Nanjing.

Democrats Bill to Add Four Justices to Supreme Court

No.825901 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Okay shut the fuck up, here's real news happening and not partisan shitflinging from leftypol

>CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS PLAN to unveil legislation expanding the size of the Supreme Court on Thursday, according to three congressional sources familiar with the closely held measure.

>The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, before settling on nine in 1869.

>The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

>Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks.

>After Trump’s nomination of Coney Barrett, then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced pressure to stop her confirmation by any means necessary. When those myriad options fell short, and Coney Barrett was pushed through, the conversation turned to expanding the court.

>But, after Democrats lost races they hoped to win in Maine, North Carolina, and Iowa, some Democratic strategists argued that the talk of court packing and ending the filibuster had inspired more Republicans to vote, and discussion of the move was shelved.

The FBI might have gone ahead and fixed your Microsoft email server

No.825992 ViewReplyOriginalReport
On March 2, Microsoft warned the world that a Chinese state-sponsored hacking group called Hafnium had infected what would turn out to be tens of thousands of Microsoft Exchange servers in a weeks-long hacking blitz. While Microsoft soon released a patch, not every victim updated their systems, and hundreds of servers remained exposed. A little over a month later, the Department of Justice has now revealed, the FBI took extraordinary steps to protect those still at risk.

Court documents unsealed this week reveal that the FBI obtained a warrant to copy and delete so-called web shells—essentially a foothold into a system that hackers can use to send remote commands or malware—from hundreds of Hafnium victims. While the operation seems straightforward on a technical level, it establishes a precedent that manages to be at once both controversial and refreshingly restrained.

“This is a novel approach,” says April Doss, a former NSA lawyer who currently directs the Institute for Technology Law and Policy at Georgetown Law. “I think we’ll see it used again, but I would hope we see it used again with really careful analysis.”

Now that a puppet is running the show china is testing the waters with taiwan

Anyone not familiar, these sorts of exercises generally test enemy response time, response capability and detection ability.

You start running aircraft over the border at various places and seeing how far you can get before you are intercepted. Lets them know what their boundaries are

The defence ministry said 25 aircraft including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers entered its so-called air defence identification zone (ADIZ) on Monday.

The incursion is the largest in a year and comes as the US warns against an "increasingly aggressive China".

Beijing Biden views Taiwan as a breakaway province.

pants shitter in chief introduces bill to end the SCOTUS

No.825984 ViewReplyOriginalReport
If you can't win change the rules (and if you are Nadler, change your pants). Just because Mitch outsmarted him (and he shit his pants on national TV) Nadler and the dems are trying to end confidence in the scotus
This goes one of 2 ways either
>gop gains power, court goes to 17, this keeps happening and going up forever
>biden and the dems use the packed scotus to ban guns and overturn heller
>Texas, Florida, and the rest of the real states say fuck off SCOTUS isn't legitimate
>nullification crisis 2, electric boogaloo
>end of the union
pretty shitty to put the union in such peril just because you are upset the GOP appointed 2 bipartisan judges and a catholic woman. But I guess Nadler knows all about shitty, considering what he did to his pants on national TV.
