The government’s plan to legalize marijuana by this summer remains on track.

After a tense day of uncertainty over whether the Liberals could garner enough support from independent senators to defeat a Conservative effort to kill the bill, Bill C-45 passed second reading on Thursday night.

It is now headed to committee, where it is expected to face scathing reviews by Conservative senators.

The BBC had a video last year of them going to mexico and speaking to the producers. They flat out said they're increasing their producing because pot isn't profitable. I can't find the exact video but here's another:

>As more US states legalize marijuana, dropping prices are forcing growers to turn to other sources of income. In the Mexican state of Guerrero, the new crop is opium poppies - for the production of heroin, a profitable business for local drug cartels.

We're not talking about selling it to kids, we're talking about cost effective regulation that's proportional with risk. Overall, weed is not as dangerous as alcohol by almost any metric. At the same time, alcohol is basically a cultural institution and big business so we're not going to get away with tightening regulations on it much. So on the whole weed should be about as accessible as alcohol.

The more than comes out about how he died, it looks more and more like the police accidentally set off the bomb in his truck by running him off the road. It's a nice cover story that he offed himself when the police rolled in though. Too bad for the cops you can see the damage to his jeep and the police vehicle that rammed him (not bomb damage)

White nationalist Jared Taylor sues Twitter over ban

White nationalist Jared Taylor is suing Twitter after the social network banned his account as part of a crackdown on abusive content.

Mr Taylor's lawyer says the suspension of his account is a form of censorship, accusing Twitter of discrimination.

Twitter declined to comment on the case but has previously said that its tools are "apolitical".
Mr Taylor is head of American Renaissance, a website that champions "racial difference".

He had his account suspended in December, with Twitter explaining that it prohibited accounts affiliated with the promotion of violence, something Mr Taylor denies applied to him.

it's a rebranding of white supremacists who want to ethnically cleanse minorities but want to shed their associations with former incarnations of the ideological community which they see as laden with imaging problems, in particular violence and hate speech
So it's just calling people racist because they're white? Alright then, moving on.
The problem with any expectation that people "man up" and be independent is that some people can't or find it disproportionately difficult. If any of those people would otherwise have something to offer, you're at a loss where interdependence would have spared you that. Hell, half the appeal of being a gritty stoic is that it's a solid platform to support others from.

Independence is a value ideally set and managed by the individual. Those who can step up to that expectation, will. Those who can't, find other ways to contribute because most of us honest to god do want to leave a positive mark. But any society or group that requires of its members a level of independence, cuts off it's ability to promote mutual support. And thus, is actively preventing some portion of it's members' ability to contribute to the whole.
There are black and hispanic nationalists. Think Nation of Islam and La Raza. With a cursory understanding of either; it doesn't take long to realize that these groups are radical, dangerous, and cult-like unless you already agree with them.

The Alt Right(and BLM for you diehard contrarians) have trappings of ethno-nationalism. But they aren't old or organized enough to assign to apply any one holistic philosophy to. The waters are murky enough and their values broad enough that you can be committed to either while compartmentalizing away the more racist and nationalist tendencies of your peers. I don't understand why you're being so hyperbolic about this.

Retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a longtime analyst for Fox News, told colleagues he is done with the network he says has become "a propaganda machine" for President Trump.

Peters said in an email first reported Tuesday by BuzzFeed that he chose not to renew his contract as a paid contributor with Fox News on March 1 because he was "ashamed" of the network.

He said the 21st Century Fox-owned cable channel has gone from being a valuable conservative voice to "assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers."

Peters' comments directly targeted the network's opinions hosts — which include Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham — for their consistent attacks on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation into Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election. Mueller is also looking into whether Trump obstructed justice when he fired James B. Comey from his post as FBI director.

"When prime-time hosts — who have never served our country in any capacity — dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller — all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of 'deep-state' machinations — I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove," Peters wrote. "To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit."

- The power players behind Cambridge Analytica have set up a new company — and the daughters of Donald Trump-supporting billionaire Robert Mercer have just joined as directors.

- Rebekah and Jennifer Mercer joined Emerdata on March 16, but it is shrouded in mystery.

- Alexander Nix, the suspended CEO of Cambridge Analytica, is also a director, as well as other executives from parent firm SCL Group.

- Emerdata also lists Johnson Chun Shun Ko, a Chinese executive from Frontier Services Group, the military firm chaired by prominent Trump supporter Erik Prince.

- Cambridge Analytica is under scrutiny for the role it played in the US election after The Observer revealed the firm had illegitimately hoovered up Facebook user data.

Rebekah and Jennifer Mercer, daughters of hedge fund tycoon Robert Mercer, have just joined the board of a mysterious new company set up by executives at scandal-hit political research firm Cambridge Analytica.

According to public filings at Britain's Companies House, Emerdata was incorporated in August 2017 and the Mercers were appointed to its board on March 16 this year.

Cambridge Analytica's now-suspended chief executive, Alexander Nix, is also listed as a director, as is Julian Wheatland, chairman of Cambridge Analytica parent firm SCL Group.

Emerdata is connected to controversial Trump supporter Erik Prince
Another notable company director is Johnson Chun Shun Ko, the deputy chairman of Frontier Services Group.

Frontier is a private security firm which mostly operates in Africa and is currently chaired by US businessman and prominent Trump supporter Erik Prince. Prince is best known for founding private military group Blackwater US and is the brother of US education secretary Betsy DeVos.

Prince also donated to the Make America Number 1 PAC, a Mercer-funded group that supported Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

Make America Number 1 paid Cambridge Analytica $1.5 million in 2015 and 2016. During undercover filming by Britain's Channel 4 News, CA executives revealed how Make America Number 1 was used to seed online attack ads against Hillary Clinton.

The appointments indicate the strong ties between the Mercer family and Cambridge Analytica.

Robert Mercer is the primary funder for Cambridge Analytica, and was also a major backer of Donald Trump's presidential campaign through the Make America Number 1 PAC.

He's also the major funder behind controversial right-wing news site Breitbart. Breitbart's former executive chairman and former White House advisor, Steve Bannon, once sat on the board of Cambridge Analytica.

nobody is concerned?
/news/ is a slow board. Also, it's like they're the fucking Claw from Inspector Gadget. Escape capture and then set up in a new base somewhere.
I don't know about 'concerned', but I find it interesting that Soros and the Mercers are apparently at war with each other and both spend massive amounts of money trying to win over the population of the world to their various causes. That's to say nothing of the Adlesons or the Kochs or the Steyers or the Bransons.

All that said, the direction the Mercers have taken their number one media property in the past 10 years (breitbart) is really telling of their agenda. We think Bannon is bad now but Andrew Breitbart himself would probably be in Trump's cabinet right now if things were just a little bit different and he could have managed to stay alive.

Video console death: US boy, 9, 'kills sister, 13, over controller' - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-43455550

I don't support gun control nor do I oppose it. Never owned a gun, but never felt like others shouldn't. But this, well it really makes me think. Even taking the gun away, he still might have grabbed a knife or something deadly but the older sister could've defended herself against such a weapon.

Allowing a gun to be accessible to a child should be considered child abuse. If society thinks that your judgement isn't good enough that you should be allowed to drive a car, then your judgement is not good enough that you should be able to handle a firearm. To allow such a person access to firearms is to endanger their lives and the lives of everyone around them.
How do you defend yourself against a knife in the back?

>hurr durr gun control
If he had followed regulations and kept it in a locker, this wouldnt have happened.
There's only one answer: make it harder for idiots to get guns.

Of course, that would technically make it harder for anyone to get a gun, but only the idiots would have real trouble. Anyone against this sort of thing must obviously be an idiot
this wouldn't work because of nra lobbyists. A better solution would be to mandate strict education on gun safety and punishments for gun safety violations. You cannot stop idiots from getting guns because there is a lot of money to be made selling guns to idiots, but you can try to teach them to be less idiotic.

Washington (CNN) Stormy Daniels was "truthful about having unprotected vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump in July 2006," according to a polygraph test report from 2011.
The report states that the "probability of deception was measured to be less than 1%." It was given to CNN by Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney and contains three pertinent questions: "Around July 2006, did you have vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump?," "Around July 2006, did you have unprotected sex with Donald Trump?" and "Did Trump say you would get on 'The Apprentice?'"

Daniels replied yes to all three questions. The first two were analyzed to be truthful, the third question was "inconclusive" according to the polygraph examiner Ronald Slay.

Polygraphs are generally inadmissible in court.

The polygraph was performed at the request of Bauer Publishing, which owns Life&Style and InTouch magazines, according to the reporter who interviewed Daniels in 2011. Reporter Jordi Lippe-McGraw initially interviewed Daniels for Life & Style magazine. The interview was not published at the time, but Bauer Publishing released it in InTouch magazine earlier this year.

Woman named in Stormy Daniels' document accused Trump of unwanted advances
Lippe-McGraw told CNN on Tuesday that Daniels passed the test in a broader sense. "Based off of the interview, we had her take the polygraph test to confirm the details of what she was telling us. There wasn't much in the way of physical evidence, per se," Lippe-McGraw said, adding that the big-picture question they wanted to confirm was that the affair happened, and that Daniels passed. Lippe-McGraw said that Daniels told her she had unprotected sex with Trump, because Daniels is allergic to latex and didn't have condoms at the time.

Earlier Tuesday, Avenatti tweeted out a photograph of Daniels being administered the test.

This wasn't a "whole thing" to be involved in until Daniels made it a whole thing. The issue was sleeping and buried up until recently.

>but the issue TODAY is the money.
Trump may not be as rich as he claims he is, but he is still quite rich, and $150,000 is chump change to him. Even if for some reason via magical retard accounting the money came out of his campaign, Donald Trump put $66 million dollars of his own money out of his own pocket into his campaign.

The difference between him paying $150,000 out of his own pocket to shut her up and him paying $150,000 to his campaign to pay her to shut up matters maybe for tax purposes and arcane legal minutiae, but practically speaking there's no fucking difference - maybe it was a Bad Thing but there is no world in which one of these is worthy of strident moral condemnation and the other is peaches.
The difference is that it's fucking weird and in no way should he have felt motivated to shell out 66 million as opposed to 65.85 million while paying out of pocket. So if it's chump change, why didn't he pay it out of pocket instead of using a campaign fund?

With no real reason other than arcane legal minutiae (and seriously, you're using the possibility of tax evasion as an excuse for why this is ok?) then why go through such a roundabout process. What motivation is there to do something like that?

Are we supposed to think that 150K spent deliberately out of a mutual fund was some accident or trivial mistake? Because 150K is a lot of money and I'd expect fiscal conservatives to agree that throwing it around without concern is fucking stupid since that's practically half their entire platform. Or should we be concerned that this is a part of a growing list of sketchy bullshit that's "no big deal guys don't worry about it"
>So if it's chump change, why didn't he pay it out of pocket instead of using a campaign fund?
Is there a reason why he would feel compelled not to use his campaign fund? The only thing that changes for him is the name on the check. It's about as "roundabout" as me routing money from my savings account to my checking account. It's not as though it didn't benefit his campaign.

>Are we supposed to think that 150K spent deliberately out of a mutual fund was some accident or trivial mistake?
I'm not sure you know what a "mutual fund" is.

>Because 150K is a lot of money and I'd expect fiscal conservatives to agree that throwing it around without concern is fucking stupid since that's practically half their entire platform.
Campaigns piss away money. Trump spent a billion dollars on his campaign. Hillary spent one and a half. All that money could have fed a million starving children but America simply accepts this because it's everybody's First Amendment right to piss that money away.

Donald Trump could have paid a Stormy Daniels every week for a hundred years and still had money left over. On a national scale (and unfortunately, Donald Trump is a national-scale figure) 150K is crap.
>All that money could have fed a million starving children
Someone should really make a chart of all the funds that politics wastes in terms of what charities could do with it. Most people seem ignorant to how much is spent on running for office, even for contentious state seats

While many people would run the other way when face-to-face with such an enormous arachnid, a group of North Queensland locals did the opposite and saved the terrifying creature when it was found dangling for dear life on a branch overhanging flooded water.

The spider is believed to be a whistling spider (Australian tarantula) — the name relates to the sound they make when feeling threatened. They are also known as bird-eating spiders.

Found in the warmer and more arid regions of Australia, the largest species can grow a body length of 6cm and a leg span of 16cm, with powerful fangs 1cm long.

“They are large to very large grey or brown spiders that are very hairy with two finger-like spinnerets at the end of the body. Thick hair pads on their legs and ‘feet’ allow these spiders to easily climb glass or smooth plastic walls,” explainedQueensland Museum.


So it's just news of spiders surviving a flood then.

Reporters have photographed what appears to be evidence of people voting twice in Russia’s presidential election. Vladimir Putin returned to power at the weekend with a of the vote.

In the town of Ust-Djeguta, in southern Russia near Georgia, Reuters reporters photographed 17 people who appeared to cast two ballots. Leila Koichuyeva, a member of the election commission, when shown the pictures of people who apparently voted twice, said: “They could be twins.”

Zukhra Chomaeva, another election official at polling station number 217, said: “How do I know if they’re the same person? They might look the same.”

Ludmila Sklyarevskaya was among those photographed apparently voting twice, once at polling station 215 and once at polling station 216 in the town. She denied any wrongdoing.

Many of the people photographed appeared to be state employees: Sklyarevskaya was identified by a colleague as a hospital deputy director of health and safety.

Sklyarevskaya arrived to vote with a group of eight other women and one man through the gates of polling station 216. About 20 minutes later, the same group were observed voting again a few hundred metres away at polling station 215.

Approached about the incident, Sklyarevskaya said she had voted only once, at a third polling station, number 217. “Who directed you to do this investigation?” she asked. “You do not have the right to get involved in the electoral system.”

Sudan, the world's last male northern white rhinoceros, died in Kenya on Monday, leaving his species one step closer to extinction, even as a group of scientists undertake an unprecedented effort to try to keep this animal from vanishing entirely.

Sudan was 45 years old, and his health had deteriorated in recent weeks after a severe leg infection. In a statement, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy said that his condition worsened and that he was no longer able to stand up, so his veterinary team decided to euthanize him.

Sudan was captured in Sudan in 1975, when he was just 2 years old, and was taken to Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. But as that zoo fell into financial troubles and rhinos failed to breed, Sudan was relocated in 2009 to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Laikipia County, Kenya, along with two northern white rhino females named Najin and Fatu.

The thinking was that in a place closely resembling their homeland, they would thrive. Northern white rhinos used to be found in an area spanning Uganda, Chad, southwestern Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Some 2,000 existed in 1960, according to the World Wildlife Fund, but war and the poaching that funded the fighting drove them to extinction in the wild.

Joseph Thaida, who took care of Sudan at the conservancy since 2012, remembers him as an affectionate and gentle rhino who had his picture taken with tourists and served as the centerpiece of publicity stunts. The most famous was when Sudan got his own Tinder profile last year to bring attention to the plight of his subspecies and to direct donations to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy for research on assisted reproductive technologies for rhinos.

"Whenever he hears people talking, he loves to come close, because he knows he's gonna be scratched," Thaida told NPR last year.

Are you trying to imply that this rhino didn't carry any deleterious traits? With such a small founder population, even if we did manage to get them breeding again it would bottle neck hard as the genetic diversity among 3 members would be incredibly low. Combine that with the fact that rhinos don't mate often, you would net a few offspring per generation. All of this combines to create a situation similar to the Amish
Amish aren't really that inbred.
Well that's due to the fact they get 3rd parties like me to fertilize there women. I swear in a decade I have created 3 for sure perhaps 4 halfies.
They inject some chemical into rhino horn, that, when ingested, makes the person extremely sick but doesn’t hurt the rhino.
But wouldn't they still have to kill the rhino to ingest it? Why not just sell them ground chicken bones and call it rhino horn.

Despite the North Pole being shrouded in darkness for another month, temperatures in the Arctic have soared by as much as 45 degrees Fahrenheit above average. This has brought temperatures above freezing in February in one of the coldest places on Earth.

Many in Europe experienced colder temperatures than the Arctic in the past few days as the polar vortex continues to collapse, the insulating body which keeps cold temperatures within the high latitudes.

Now, professors are grappling with an extreme melting event many thought was decades away. Greenland has experienced 61 hours of above freezing temperatures in 2018 thus far, during what should be the coldest months of the year.

This past weekend a storm pushed warm air northward into the Arctic, pushing temperatures to just above freezing and approximately 45 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than average. In this instance, it appears the intruding warm air into the Arctic was not pushed back by the polar vortex, a wall of wind which circulates the Arctic.
