DoJ wants data on all visitors to anti-Trump site

They will drive the internet into the dark. VPN's everywhere, encrypt all the emails, everyone is in three or more cells. I bitch about the important things I didn't learn about in school. In 20 years, modern kids will be doing the same.

The DoJ demanded that the host of disruptj20.org (Inauguration Day) hand over IP addresses of 1.3 million visitors. DreamHost challenged the scope of the warrant. The DoJ filed a sealed affidavit that provided a search warrant for the addresses, contact information, email content, photos and unpublished blog posts.

Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Airbnb said it is permanently deactivating the accounts of people who are attempting to use the website's service to find lodging to attend an upcoming white supremacist rally in Virginia.

The online booking service said it believes that people planning to attend the "Unite the Right" rally on Aug. 12, which is featuring a variety of white supremacist online personalities, are violating the company's terms and conditions, which all members sign when they create an account. The company also said it runs background checks on members to determine who engages in behavior it deems inappropriate.

"In 2016 we established the Airbnb Community Commitment reflecting our belief that to make good on our mission of belonging, those who are members of the Airbnb community accept people regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age. We asked all members of the Airbnb to affirmatively sign on to this commitment," Airbnb said Monday.

Trump tweets cartoon of train hitting CNN reporter

No.168748 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
WASHINGTON — President Trump shared on Twitter a cartoon on Tuesday morning of a train running over a person with a CNN logo covering the person’s head, three days after a fatal collision in Charlottesville, Va. Mr. Trump deleted his retweet minutes later.

Mr. Trump has been under fire for how he has publicly addressed bloody demonstrations by white nationalists over the weekend. Promoting a cartoon of a person being run over by a train appeared to belittle the attack by a driver who ran into a crowd of counterprotesters, leaving a 32-year-old woman dead on Saturday and 19 others injured. An Ohio man has been charged with second-degree murder in the crash.

On Monday, Mr. Trump bowed to pressure and condemned white supremacists protesting the removal of a Confederate statue, and the president called racism “evil.” But later Monday, Mr. Trump took to Twitter to criticize what he called the fake news media for not being satisfied with his additional remarks.

The president has long appeared to sanction violence, going back to his campaign when, at a rally, he said he wanted to punch a Black Lives Matter protester in the face. He later said the man, who was assaulted by Trump supporters in the crowd, might have deserved to get roughed up.

Mr. Trump and his associates have long been critical of CNN. On Tuesday, the president’s re-election committee issued a statement criticizing CNN for what the committee described as censorship because the news network did not air an advertisement that was released on Sunday.

The ad briefly shows faces of television journalists, including several from CNN, with the words “attacking our president,” and a voice-over at the end says “the president’s enemies” as their faces reappear.

A network spokeswoman said CNN would have accepted the ad if the reporters and anchors had been removed.

Putin gave Norks engines for ICBM missiles

No.168192 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Quick rundown
>Norks struggling and failing to produce engines for ICBMs by themselves
>Suddenly Norks test advanced ICBM capable of hitting US successfully
>It is discovered they used missiles of Russian design that were produced by factory in Ukraine on the Russian border
>Putin has invaded Ukraine, including the area with the factory in it
>classic to Russian tactics, engines were built in Ukraine to give Putin plausible deniability but there is little doubt he facilitated the purchase

Putin can't launch nukes on the US without getting nuked himself so he's giving the technology to the one group of people who are crazy enough to actually use them on the US. This is an act of war the way Russia has been waging war in recent years: covertly. Remember the "little green men" who invaded Ukraine and how Putin denied his involvement until the very last minute? This is how they operate, in secrecy and denial with propaganda brainwashing domestic and foreign minds alike.

North Korea has no intention of using nuclear weapons against any country 'except the US'

No.165513 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
North Korea's top diplomat says "under no circumstances" will it put its nuclear weapons or ballistic missiles on the negotiating table.

Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho also said that his country has no intention of using nuclear weapons against any country "except the US".

He said the only way that would change is if another country joined in an American action against North Korea.

Schwarzenegger launches new effort to counter Trump on climate

No.164396 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/345300-schwarzenegger-hits-trump-on-climate

>Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) is launching a database of legislation to help combat climate change in response to President Trump's decision to leave the Paris accord.

>The website, envirolaws.org, is a cooperative effort between the Schwarzenegger Institute at the University of South Carolina and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators. It contains a searchable database of environmental bills and laws. The database is meant to help lawmakers across the country craft their own climate change legislation.

>In an interview with Politico, Schwarzenegger called it a direct challenge to Trump.

>"There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a digital legislative handbook — and make it available to people who wanted to create environmental action now — because of the situation with Trump," Schwarzenegger said Thursday.

>"With his decision on the Paris agreement, it is even more so important to make this information available because it shows the kinds of wonderful things states can do without waiting for the federal government."

>According to Schwarzenegger, his new website will empower state legislators to go further than the Trump administration is willing to go on environmental issues.

>"The message to legislators with the project is now 'you have the power to do it yourselves,'" he told Politico. "The reality is each state now goes to work and passes great legislation that helps them ... make great decisions."

24 Times Citizens Used Guns to Save Lives in Last Six Weeks

No.167118 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/11/24-times-citizens-used-guns-to-save-lives/

>On January 12, 2017, the New York Times editorial board claimed, “The grim truth is that concealed-carry permit holders are rarely involved in stopping crime.” And that very same day a concealed carry permit holder in Arizona used his gun to save the life of a state trooper who was under attack on I-10.
In fact, authentic academic work on gun use for self-defense shows that Americans in general—whether concealed permit holders or not—use guns for defense of themselves and others at least 760,000 a year. That is not a typo—Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck’s research shows that the minimum number of defensive gun uses (DGUs) is 760,000 annually.

>We do not hear about DGUs from the establishment media because it goes against their gun control template. So Breitbart News thought it would be beneficial to pull together 24 examples of citizens using guns defensively over the past six weeks. In some of these instances the citizen did not have to pull the trigger—just brandishing the weapon was enough—but in some of the incidents the citizen did have to fire, wounding or killing robbery and/or assault suspects.

What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all?

No.168473 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A new report raises questions media and Democrats would rather ignore
A group of intelligence pros and forensic investigators tell The Nation there was no hack— the media ignores it.

http://www.salon.com/2017/08/15/what-if-the-dnc-russian-hack-was-really-a-leak-after-all-a-new-report-raises-questions-media-and-democrats-would-rather-ignore/

Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.

This report also claims there is no apparent evidence that the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 — supposedly based in Romania — hacked the DNC on behalf of the Russian government. There is also no evidence, the report’s authors say, that Guccifer handed documents over to WikiLeaks. Instead, the report says that the evidence and timeline of events suggests that Guccifer may have been conjured up in an attempt to deflect from the embarrassing information about Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign that was released just before the Democratic National Convention. The investigators found that some of the “Guccifer” files had been deliberately altered by copying and pasting the text into a “Russianified” word-processing document with Russian-language settings.

If all this is true, these findings would constitute a massive embarrassment for not only the DNC itself but the media, which has breathlessly pushed the Russian hacking narrative for an entire year, almost without question but with little solid evidence to back it up.

CNN's Phil Mudd calls for Deep State to kill Trump

CNN counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd warned that President Trump is agitating the government, saying during a Thursday afternoon interview with CNN anchor Jake Tapper that the U.S. government "is going to kill this guy."

Mudd, who served as deputy director to former FBI Director Robert Mueller, said Trump's defense of Russian President Vladimir Putin has compelled federal employees "at Langley, Foggy Bottom, CIA and State" to try to take Trump down.
