Congress: US State Department Illegally Interfering in Hungarian Elections Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 23:34:06 Id: 4484e5 [Preview] No. 5375 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Representative Andy Harris (R-MD) has asked colleagues to sign a letter urging the U.S. State Department to improve relations with Hungary and end the Obama-era policy of funding media to “interfere in Hungarian elections”.

The request, circulated Tuesday, called on fellow congressmen to write to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to suspend a $700,000 grant to support “objective media” to “lead to democratic reforms” in NATO ally and European Union (EU) member state Hungary.

Breitbart London reported in November on the State Department’s commitment to finance what it calls “democracy and human rights programming” by “support[ing] media outlets operating outside the [Hungarian] capital … to produce fact-based reporting and increase their audience and economic sustainability”.

Rep. Harris wrote that the Obama administration’s “cold-shoulder[ing]” of the Central European nation turned Hungary “into a pariah state”, and called the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) a “misguided antagonism of our democratic ally”.

The Republican congressman for Maryland called Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán “an outspoken defender” of Western civilisation and of Hungary’s “traditional values and cultural heritage… and the leading European voice against mass immigration and the hegemony of Brussels”.

Rep. Harris, who is of Hungarian descent, believes that the State Department funding “opposition media in a democratic country” represents “the latest in a string of State Department actions insulting and undermining the center-right government of one of the United States’ closest allies in Europe”.

When the $700,00o0 grant was announced, the Hungarian government criticised the State Department for what it regarded as interference in its internal affairs ahead of national elections in Spring 2018.

Last year, the Hungarian parliament passed a law ensuring greater transparency of foreign-funded bodies which both Brussels, the administrative capital of the EU, and the State Department condemned.

It's finally out now, I've been waiting a while for the US press to admit it, but now The Week is promoting and endorsing communist policy similar to the Soviet Union.... all along for the last 20 years now I had a really bad feeling this was not the country I grew up in. Clearly not.

You know what I believe happened? The outlawed communist party (which were full of violent cultural Marxists) infiltrated and took over the Democratic Party of the US. And they almost infiltrated the Republican Party too, but I think we stopped that (thank God).

I also think this is why they hate Russia today. Russians don't want the old Soviet Union anymore, they want nothing to do with that hellish communism. And communists in the US would resent that ever so much!

Notice how almost everything these "democratic" communists blame others for doing, they themselves turn out to be THE guilty party doing it? Election interference? Look at the leaked Dem playbook where they rely on illegal non-citizen votes. Colluding with Russia? Uranium One. Rascism? Promoting sharia law mass murdering Christians and other non-conformists. War mongering? Supplying countries like North Korea and Cuba with nukes in the first place (you heard me). Terrorism? Antifa thugs beating innocent people up in the streets. Censorship? These "liberals" own all the major social media providers that have been busted over and over censoring users. Totalitarianism? Look who's trying to confiscate our guns and ban our right to defend ourselves. Unethical worker conditions? Who has been supporting unfair trade deals that outsource American jobs and amnesty policies that flood America with cheap foreign slave labor?

Get it yet? Our enemies are already here.

Leaked Video Shows Twitter Employees Bragging About Abusing Algorithms, "Shadow Banning" Unknowing Users Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 20:25:23 Id: 6393dc [Preview] No. 5368 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains “shadow banning,” says “it’s going to ban a way of talking”

Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: “they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it”

Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: “if it was a pro-Trump thing and I’m anti-Trump… I banned his whole account… it’s at your discretion”

When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds “Very. A lot of unwritten rules… It was never written it was more said”

Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, “we’re trying to ‘down rank’… shitty people to not show up,” “we’re working [that] on right now”

In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.

This video release follows the first undercover Twitter exposé Project Veritas released on January 10th which showed Twitter Senior Network Security Engineer Clay Haynes saying that Twitter is “more than happy to help the Department of Justice with their little [President Donald Trump] investigation.” Twitter responded to the video with a statement shortly after that release, stating “the individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent of speak for Twitter.” The video released by Project Veritas today features eight employees, and a Project Veritas spokesman said there are more videos featuring additional employees coming.

On January 3rd 2018 at a San Francisco restaurant, Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter Software Engineer explains a strategy, called “shadow banning,” that to his knowledge, Twitter has employed:

“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

Twitter is in the process of automating censorship and banning, says Twitter Software Engineer Steven Pierre on December 8th of 2017:

“Every single conversation is going to be rated by a machine and the machine is going to say whether or not it’s a positive thing or a negative thing. And whether it’s positive or negative doesn’t (inaudible), it’s more like if somebody’s being aggressive or not. Right? Somebody’s just cursing at somebody, whatever, whatever. They may have point, but it will just vanish… It’s not going to ban the mindset, it’s going to ban, like, a way of talking.”

Olinda Hassan, a Policy Manager for Twitter’s Trust and Safety team explains on December 15th, 2017 at a Twitter holiday party that the development of a system of “down ranking” “shitty people” is in the works:

“Yeah. That’s something we’re working on. It’s something we’re working on. We’re trying to get the shitty people to not show up. It’s a product thing we’re working on right now.”

When asked to clarify if that process was automated Norai confirmed that it was not:

“Yeah, if they said this is: ‘Pro-Trump’ I don’t want it because it offends me, this, that. And I say I banned this whole thing, and it goes over here and they are like, ‘Oh you know what? I don’t like it too. You know what? Mo’s right, let’s go, let’s carry on, what’s next?'”

Norai also revealed that more left-leaning content would go through their selection process with less political scrutiny, “It would come through checked and then I would be like ‘Oh you know what? This is okay. Let it go.’”

Norai explains that this selection process wasn’t exactly Twitter policy, but rather they were following unwritten rules from the top:

“A lot of unwritten rules, and being that we’re in San Francisco, we’re in California, very liberal, a very blue state. You had to be… I mean as a company you can’t really say it because it would make you look bad, but behind closed doors are lots of rules.”

“There was, I would say… Twitter was probably about 90% Anti-Trump, maybe 99% Anti-Trump.”

At a San Francisco bar on January 5th, Pranay Singh details how the shadow-banning algorithms targeting right-leaning are engineered:

“Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for stuff that matches that stuff.”

Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 20:27:36 Id: 6393dc [Preview] No.5371 del
When asked if the majority of the algorithms are targeted against conservative or liberal users of Twitter, Singh said, “I would say majority of it are for Republicans.”

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe believes the power over speech Silicon Valley tech giants has is unprecedented and dangerous:

“What kind of world do we live in where computer engineers are the gatekeepers of the ‘way people talk?’ This investigation brings forth information of profound public importance that educates people about how free they really are to express their views online.”

Project Veritas plans to release more undercover video from within Twitter in the coming days.

#Winning: Afghanistan Will NOT Award Mining Contracts to US-Backed Companies Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 12:59:14 Id: bc9af5 [Preview] No. 5366 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Afghan government, funded in part by the American taxpayer, has refused to award contracts to exploit the country’s lucrative mining industry to Pentagon-supported international companies, including U.S.-based contractors, according to the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a watchdog agency.

Meanwhile, the Kabul government has reached a 30-year, $3 billion deal with a state-owned Chinese company to mine Afghanistan’s copper deposits, a component of the war-ravaged countries mineral resources valued by the U.S. government at about $1 trillion.

The United States has spent at least $121 billion on Afghan reconstruction efforts alone, funding the country’s government, among other sectors of the country.

Nevertheless, Afghanistan has refused to award mining contracts to international companies supported by the Pentagon’s Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), including some contractors based in the United States.

SIGAR found:

TFBSO obligated $51 million to facilitate the award of between 8 and 12 large-scale mining contracts to international companies. However, TFBSO officials and contractors said they overestimated the speed at which the [Afghan] Ministry of Mines and Petroleum could work and underestimated the resistance they would face from other ministries.

As a result, after repeated delays, no contracts were signed but four contracts were brought to the point that they only needed the Afghan government’s signature. However, the government refused to sign any of these contracts because of political concerns surrounding mining contracts.

Overall, the watchdog agency reported that the Pentagon’s $675 million TBSO effort has yielded “mixed results, waste, and unsustained projects.”

While the United States continues to invest blood and treasure in Afghanistan, it is neighboring China that is set to tap into what is believed to be one of the richest troves of minerals in the world located in the war-devastated nation.

Simple solution: cut off taxpayer funding from Afghanistan.

Better solution: end this whole fraudulent "war on terror" BS, cut off all taxpayer funding to the Middle East and bring the troops back home where they belong: protecting our own borders!

Full Transcript: Netanyahu's Son Recorded Trying To Pay For Prostitutes At Stip Club Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 11:54:26 Id: f8f376 [Preview] No. 5363 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son Yair Netanyahu was recorded telling the son of Israeli businessman and gas tycoon Kobi Maimon outside a strip club that the prime minister set up $20 billion for the latter's father, according to a report on Israel Television News Company on Monday.

“My dad set up 20 billion dollars for you dad, and you’re fighting with me about 400 shekel [about $115]?” said Yair in the 2015 recording of the conversation with his friend, upon leaving the strip club. Netanyahu later said the 400 shekel was for a prostitute.


The transcript that was released is as follows:

Yair Netanyahu: I’ll text her to come “takeaway” with me bro ... she’s coming with me as “takeaway.”
He thinks the stripper is coming with him, what a dumbass.
Can you tell him the stripper isn’t coming? Forget it.
Bodyguard: Forget it, he’s drunk. Where’s the lady?
Roman Abramov: Bro, she pulled a fast one on you, she wanted you to take her to a room and give her 800 shekels like an idiot ... you’re dumbasses, if someone had photographed you outside a strip club, do you realize what that would have looked like?
Son of Kobi Maimon: Do you know how much I’ve spent today? It wasn’t even for me, I spent 400 shekels on him.
Netanyahu: No, it’s all right, he paid you back.
Abramov: No, I used cash as well.
Maimon: 2,000 at the strip club.

Thank You Pelosi, By Leaking This Transcript You Just Exposed FBI Collusion With The Clinton Family Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 11:52:35 Id: a42287 [Preview] No. 5362 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Senator Diane Feinstein has inadvertently leaked information proving the FBI colluded with the Clinton campaign, informing them about the Trump-Russia investigation in 2016.


According to page 175 of a transcript made public on Tuesday, Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, told the Senate Judiciary Committee the following:

Essentially what he told me was they had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source and that — that they — my understanding was that they believed Chris at this point — that they believed Chris’s information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization.

Abovetopsecret.com reports: So Simpson seems to be backing up that the FBI already had evidence before the dossier was presented to them.

But step back and think about this for a moment.

The FBI, which is supposed to be a non political entity, tasked with keeping our country safe, apparently was giving details of looking into election interference between Trump and russians to a former spy from another country that they knew to be getting paid by an oppo research firm working for Trumps opponent, Hillary.

That is appalling.

Imagine the outrage had this been done the other way. What if Trump paid a firm that the FBI contacted and said “Yeah we got all sorts of statements from hillary people about her email, like this guy Paul Combetta that was on message boards saying a VIP asked him to delete names off of emails, and then bleach bitted it the next day” How inappropriate would it be for the FBI to leak details of this ongoing investigation directly to hillarys opponent.

Leaked Democrat Memo: We Rely On Non-American Illegals For Votes Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 16:47:27 Id: 24a07b [Preview] No. 5329 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Center For American Progress (CAP) Action Fund circulated a memo on Monday calling illegal immigrants brought here at a young age — so-called “Dreamers” — a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

The memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, was sent around to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

President Donald Trump’s administration moved to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy in September, which former President Barack Obama instituted through executive order to keep immigrants who came here as children from being deported.

Trump called on Congress to find a legislative fix for young immigrants, or “Dreamers,” facing deportation. House lawmakers recently put forward a bipartisan DACA compromise bill that also claims to address worries over chain migration. However, it’s unclear if the bill will pass.

CAP Action’s memo says protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” for Democrats, it also key to getting votes.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” reads Palmieri’s memo, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond,” reads the memo. “In short, the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects.”

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson confronted Center for American Progress senior fellow Henry Fernandez on the memo. CAP Action is the 501(c)(4) political group, a sister group of the think tank where Fernandez is technically employed.

As a "gringo" who has worked in southern San Antonio and has heard gunshots weekly, as well as witnessed the mourning of cholos that have actually bragged about being in gangs in working professions, I can by all accounts insist that it's not just the "illegals" that are the problem.

I have had my identity, social security number, stolen. I still use it. A background check in the early 2000s revealed that much. I found out the girl was born in the 1990s, as the paper revealed even the girl's name and I found her Facebook. Though when I went to the local DMV after calling to schedule with social security administration, the pencil pusher I talked to was a Mexican't. Nothing was done. I have called the FBI and explained the situation. Nothing was done. I called the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Offices. Nothing was done.

Texas is ran and flooded with Mexicans. The corrupt beaner officials will not even take your legal ID back from a thief. Before I graduated University, I had to work some shitty jobs in south San Antonio. Weekly shootings occurred. Mexican'ts mourning their cholo brothers, as they bragged that they were in a gang and even tried to recruit me, the token gringo.

Illegals aren't the entire problem. It's Mexicans in general. They are a mentally insane race of mixed mutt shitheads. They make offensive jokes, extremely explicit. Stuff about being faggots and big black cocks. Racist jokes too at the same time if you as a white person mention any race in passing, YOU are labeled racist. They admitted to me they're terrified of blonde hair and blue eyes. PEOPLE ARE BEING FUCKING SHOT AND THEY'RE AFRAID OF BLUE EYES? Many Mexican cunts are in charge of positions men should be, in their early 20s. Mexicans hate and can never understand anyone who's white. Why be surprised when they descended from blood sacrificing batshit crazy Aztecs? Beaners are always fucking mental. The state of Texas is beyond hope.

It says right here in 2016 Hispanics make up 39.1% of Texas population...

It indicates below that, in 2017, Hispanics in Texas decreased to 29.46%


So whats going on anon? Are you absolutely sure this is accurate? Or do you live in an area that is mostly Hispanic and assume Texas is like this everywhere? Census data does NOT match what you are saying. Is the government lying or manipulating census data?

In fact - you can dig up this article in the /news/ catalog - the US govt recently said white birth rates became the norm again in 2017, which for a while we whites took a backseat to blacks and Hispanics. 2017 was the first time in many years that there were more white babies born than blacks or other ethnic groups in America.

So I have to question all of this. Also, if Texas is mostly Hispanic, Texas would be a deep blue state by now. Why is it still mostly Republican?

Ahhhh, no wonder a lot of Republicans support NAFTA, it all makes sense. Damn, this is a bigger problem than I thought. Although the census data does not seem to add up (yet), wonder if a lot of those beaners you see are not illegals who don't get counted into the census, that could be possible.

Regardless contact ICE if you suspect any illegals being hired, or doing criminal activities. ICE is a lot more robust today than they were under Obongo (who literally ordered ICE to stand down half the time).

New Immigration Bill: Fund Border Wall, End Visa Lottery, End Chain Migration Amnesty; Allow DACA Amnesty Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 22:19:54 Id: c712de [Preview] No. 5354 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A group of House Republicans has drafted an ambitious immigration bill which offers a token amnesty in exchange for a deep reform of immigration rules to ease deportations, promote civic integration, end chain migration, end the visa lottery, build a border wall and raise Americans’ wages.

The bill is backed by President Donald Trump, who said Tuesday it should be a “bill of love.”

The bill is described by the authors in a Wall Street Journal article:

A priority of our legislation is to increase the security of the southern border. Our bill would provide $30 billion to build a wall, to invest in new technology, and to improve, modernize and expand ports of entry. It would add boots on the ground: an additional 5,000 Border Patrol agents and 5,000 Customs and Border Protection officers. It would provide for the construction of additional ports of entry and a full implementation of the biometric entry-exit system, while authorizing the National Guard to provide aviation and intelligence support.

The bill was developed by four influential GOP members. They are Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who chairs the judiciary committee, and Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the House’s homeland defense committee. The bill was also authored by Rep. Raul Labrador and Rep. Martha McSally.

House immigration reform bill seems even more pro-American than President Trump's priorities, in part, because it includes Mandatory E-Verify. Business groups & progressives will not be happy. https://t.co/6nvIclA1pd

— Neil Munro (@NeilMunroDC) January 10, 2018

The article also says the draft law will reform the myriad laws which help migrants use to prevent their deportation:

Our bill would achieve these goals by cracking down on people who overstay their visas, by requiring employers to use the accurate and hugely successful E-Verify system to ensure that they hire only legal workers, and by making it easier to deport aliens who are gang members, who are aggravated felons, who fail to register as sex offenders, or who have multiple DUIs …

Stephen K. Bannon has stepped down from Breitbart News Network, where he served as Executive Chairman since 2012.

Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth and orderly transition.

Bannon said, “I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform.”

According to Breitbart CEO Larry Solov, “Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish.”

I don't think Bannon was a bad guy, he just did stupid shit to draw more attention to himself, without thinking. And he did get attention, very negative attention that is.

Steve is still a good Naval man. Any good sailor would be happy to direct fires at the enemy on his boat. I got no problems with him. Frankly, Trump should remember how fleeting Executive office power is. Even General Washington set his Army down and gave them back whole, to their families. But since the USN commanders have all been ordered to sober up, I think Steve should also make sure to check in with his support group to stay sharp and ship shape at all times.

Switzerland Bans Lazy Welfare Recipients From Applying For Citizenship Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 21:02:02 Id: 581241 [Preview] No. 5350 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Authorities in Switzerland have banned residents who have been on welfare in the past three years from becoming citizens.

In a move that will likely anger the EU elite, new Swiss regulations will require residents to pay back the money they received from the state before they are granted citizenship.

Breitbart.com reports: The new regulations will make it impossible for asylum seekers and migrants who have lived off state handouts in the last three years to become citizens even if they have lived in Switzerland as permanent residents for the required time to make a citizenship application, Kronen Zeitung reports.

The previous law allowed migrants to apply for citizenship as long as they were not on state benefits at the time of their application.

Along with the welfare stipulation, the new act requires migrants to demonstrate a greater level of integration than before including making them prove they have a certain number of Swiss friends and acquaintances.

Language requirements vary by canton with most expecting an intermediate level of language proficiency judged on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) at the B1 or B2 level.

While Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, asylum seekers have attempted to flood into the country through the southern Italian border. While many have used Switzerland as a transit country to reach Germany, others have remained in the Alpine state.

Various cantons and cities in Switzerland have attempted to push back against the tide of migrants by making it less appealing for them to come to the country. Late last year, the city of Zurich voted to dramatically cut benefits to failed asylum seekers who were in so-called “F-status” in which they cannot be deported.

Good! Bundy Case Dismissed In Staggering Blow To Corrupt, Abusive Federal Government Reader 01/09/2018 (Tue) 19:06:30 Id: 4c8840 [Preview] No. 5313 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In a blistering rebuke to the federal government, a judge dismissed all charges against rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and militia member Ryan Payne stemming from an armed standoff with federal agents in 2014.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro issued a scathing analysis of the government’s conduct, terming it “outrageous.”

“There has been flagrant misconduct, substantial prejudice and no lesser remedy is sufficient,” she said.

The charges were dismissed “with prejudice,” which means the federal government will not be able to retry the men.

The same judge declared a mistrial in the case late last month, citing prosecutorial misconduct.

One of the lawyers helping the family, Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch, earlier had written to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking him to investigate the FBI’s actions and prosecute those who had misbehaved.

“It is hoped that after a thorough investigation, that you will fire and thus prevent [FBI agents] from doing further harm to not just the Bundys, but also the public at large. They also should be prosecuted for obstruction of justice, as they are not above the law,” he said at the time.

Klayman, who was portrayed on the television show “West Wing,” has been prevented by a judge from joining the Bundys’ defense team but has been active in other ways.

Monday, he told WND he had raised some of the same issues that irritated the judge in a filing with the FBI’s inspector general, as well as its Office of Professional Responsibility.

I should repost the video showing the killing of LaVoy Finicum by the FBI, they shot him as he had his hands up in the air, he never even resisted arrest and the helicopter footage proved it. Finding the video among all my backup data would probably take too much time though. I have so many discs, external harddrives and flashdrives full of storage I can hardly keep up with all of it.
