On Sunday, February 25 around 1pm, 25-year-old active duty member of the United States Air Force Aaron Bushnell set himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in the US capital of Washington, DC, in a one-airman revolt against the US-backed slaughter currently being perpetrated by the Israeli military in the Gaza Strip.

He screamed "Free Palestine" until his vocal cords burned to a crisp, yet CNN hosts initially said they "don't know why he did it" lmao.

Moments before covering himself in flammable liquid, Aaron is seen walking toward the Israeli embassy. His last words before the flames were "I'm an active duty member of the US Air Force and I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I'm about to engage in an extreme act of protest. But compared to what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it's not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal. Free Palestine."

In a courtroom filled with tension and anticipation, a narrative unfolded that would soon become a landmark in the fight against hate crimes fueled by the incel movement. Tres Genco, a young man identified with the involuntary celibate (incel) community, faced the weight of the law for his planned massacre targeting women at Ohio State University. This case, marking a significant moment in addressing the incel ideology through the legal system, brings to light the stark realities of gender-based hate crimes and the importance of vigilance in a digital age where such ideologies can fester and escalate into planned violence.
A Disturbing Plot Unveiled

Genco's conviction on federal hate crime charges stemmed from his alarming plan to kill 3,000 women at Ohio State University, a plot that revealed the dark underbelly of the incel movement's most extreme fringes. The prosecution's request for a 12.5-year prison sentence reflects the severity of Genco's intentions, while the defense argues for leniency, citing his lack of direct action towards the plot and underlying mental health issues. The details of Genco's case, including his disturbing writings and the cache of weapons found in his possession, paint a chilling picture of what could have been one of the deadliest hate crimes in recent U.S. history.

A libertarian conservative organisation founded by the billionaire Koch brothers will no longer spend on Nikki Haley's presidential campaign.

The decision by Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP) to pull the plug is another setback for Ms Haley as she seeks the Republican nomination.

She lost her home state of South Carolina on Saturday to former President Donald Trump, his fourth successive victory in the primaries.

But she has vowed to fight on.

In an email to staff on Sunday, the AFP president and CEO said their backing would focus on key Senate and House races in November's election rather than on Ms Haley.

"She has made it clear that she will continue to fight, and we wholeheartedly support her in this effort," wrote Emily Seidel.

"But given the challenges in the primary states ahead we don't believe any outside group can make a material difference to widen her path to victory."

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Sunday that 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in action in the two years since Russia launched its full-scale invasion.

Zelenskyy said that the number was far lower than estimates given by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government.

“31,000 Ukrainian military personnel have been killed in this war. Not 300,000, not 150,000, not whatever Putin and his deceitful circle have been lying about. But nevertheless, each of these losses is a great sacrifice for us”, Zelenskyy said at the “Ukraine. Year 2024” forum in Kyiv.

Ukraine didn't retake their own land ... they "took" it from Russia.

Very nice GOP talking point.

>man losing war says he's only lost a few guys

Only 31,000, which is why boys, old men, and women are now fighting on the Uke front lines.

Makes total sense.

>Despite denials from the conference's leaders, white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, and racists did attend CPAC over the weekend.


Self-identified Nazis were at CPAC—and for all of the event leadership’s political waffling, NBC News had the receipts to prove it.

On Saturday, NBC News reported that the fascists “didn’t meet any perceptible resistance” at the conservative conference, and mingled openly with Republican personalities and members of Turning Point USA, describing themselves as “national socialists” while discussing “race science,” skull measurements, and anti-Semititc conspiracy theories.

CPAC’s Chairman Matt Schlapp refused to comment on the article, but he did take to Twitter to instill his own spin, claiming that NBC had made the whole story up and that liberals were ideological Nazis—rather than his event’s attendees.

“Yawn. This is a tired old cliche,” Schlapp posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “The Neo-Nazis in our midst are the ones controlling our college campuses and major institutions and grossly populate the newsrooms of corporate media, calling for an Israeli surrender.”

In another post on Sunday, CPAC’s account described NBC’s reporting as “false, misleading, and grossly manipulative,” while condemning the report’s author, Ben Goggin, for his coverage of Gaza.

But Goggin had his evidence ready to go, dropping photos and clips of the Nazi cohort peacefully navigating the event and its conference hotel—including an image catching one of the Nazis shaking hands with Jared Taylor, the founder of the blatantly white supremacist publication American Renaissance.

The image depicts Texas as "rejecting a ban on associating win Nazis" and then proceeds to radicalize them by writing "Texas GOP" on a large sign, only, you won't guess what they did next...
They drew a SWASTIKA in the 'O' of GOP!
hehehe isn't that great, fellow 4channers?
Texas is shown supporting the free association of peoples and they are (rightly so!) Being called Nazis for it!

Ahh, that's why I come to this board. I miss political cartoons from newsprint back when I was a child growing up in the 50s, and this board is so homely!

*Sensible chuckle* oh, you op, you sure are getting those chuds with your political cartoons. I absolutely love how organic it feels. It's like you choosing each political cartoon perfect for each occasion rather than browsing a political cartoon aggregator such as mcall and simply choosing one!

Oh, wow, I love this board. I can really feel at home with other progressive boomers like myself (I don't like the term liberal, I am a progressive, you see.)
No one cares how you evaluate it. The chart has always been used on this board likely before you ever came to 4chan. newrepublic is every bit partisan trash as nationalreview.com or newsmax, just for the other side. These are facts you cannot change.

In an embarrassing defeat for Democrats, Greg Abbott has shown that closing the border actually does work in preventing illegal border crossings.
Illegal aliens and Chinese spies have stopped illegally crossing in Texas and instead have turned to illegally crossing parts of the border which remain open, such as California
Migrant arrests are up along the border in California and dropping in Texas. Why?

A new pattern emerged along the nation’s southern border last month: Migrant arrests plummeted at the Texas border in January compared to the same month a year ago. At the same time, similar arrests soared year-over-year at entry points in California and Arizona.
Experts say a combination of factors is likely causing the shift, which has led to several thousand migrants entering California each week while they await court dates for immigration proceedings.

Stepped-up enforcement efforts by the governments of Mexico, Panama and Colombia, and heightened violence by cartels on the Mexican side of the Texas border have likely slowed expected migration into that state.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s restrictive new immigration policies, including installing razor wire along some parts of the border and a new state law that could take effect next month, could also be playing a role.

“For something to change that much that quickly, it’s either word of mouth among migrants or some change among smuggling patterns, or both,” said Adam Isacson, director for defense oversight at the Washington Office on Latin America, a research and advocacy organization.

nyc literally said in a court of law that illegals are costing them $708,000,000 per year fag. they are expensive
>Illegal immigrants can be expensive depending on where they're at. In NYC,
weird how they are only an issue in blue areas, but it is fine to flood the fuck out of red areas
>and the midwest even the most critical economic analysis found that the cost to benefit ration to illegal immigrants is a wash. The lump of labor fallacy has been debunked decades ago. Its time to move on to a new piece of propaganda.
no you have to trust these studies done by dems saying we need 2 million new illegals per year in texas, reeeee
>Ah, okay. So you're schizophrenic and you haven't even read the bill.
bill says 5,000 per day fag. that is nearly 2,000,000 per year
>Take your meds. There is no such thing as open borders.
then why are illegals entering the US, faggot?
>Ah, okay. So you're schizophrenic and you haven't even read the bill.
He may have been exaggerating calling it a quota, but it allows for a yearly average of 1.6 million illegal border encounters until the US is allowed to actually close the border off to illegal border hoppers
I mean, sure, they aggregate this figure on a sliding 7 day window in the proposed bill, but you catch the gist
>There is no such thing as open borders.
You keep saying this, and the 2.7 million who were caught and released into the country last year probably disagree with you, amongst others
>That's why Abbot's razor wire got removed.
No that happend because it impeded federal agents from doing their job.
The ruling literally just said they could legally remove it, not that it was illegal or couldn't be placed.
It's still getting placed every day because it's working and there's nothing wrong with a state protecting a national border when the president wont
The ruling precedent was that states do not control and have no say in what happens on the federal border. Mexico agrees. This is not up for dispute like you think it is.

Manhattan prosecutors on Monday asked the judge overseeing their criminal case against Donald J. Trump to prohibit the former president from attacking witnesses or exposing jurors’ identities.

The requests, made in filings by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, noted Mr. Trump’s “longstanding history of attacking witnesses, investigators, prosecutors, judges, and others involved in legal proceedings against him.”

In outlining a narrowly crafted gag order, the office hewed closely to the terms of a similar order upheld by a federal appeals court in Washington in another of Mr. Trump’s criminal cases.

The gag order in the Manhattan case, if the judge approves it, would bar Mr. Trump from “making or directing others to make” statements about witnesses concerning their role in the case. The district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, also asked that Mr. Trump be barred from commenting on prosecutors on the case — other than Mr. Bragg himself — as well as court staff members.

Although Mr. Bragg carved himself out of the gag order request, the district attorney has received the brunt of the attacks from Mr. Trump and his supporters. In an affidavit released Monday, the head of his security detail listed some of the worst of the dozens of attacks directed at Mr. Bragg last year, including racial slurs and death threats.

In a separate filing, Mr. Bragg placed a special emphasis on the protection of jurors. His prosecutors asked that Mr. Trump be barred from publicly revealing their identities. And although Mr. Trump and his legal team are allowed to know the jurors’ names, Mr. Bragg asked that their addresses be kept secret from the former president.

Is this the felony crime, that will get Trump a year is prison?

You lose track with Trump's days in court
>“As the March 25th date draws closer and closer, Donald and his legal team of misfits will attempt to concoct new ways to delay this case.”
If he can delay it until after November and somehow win the presidency then he will likely never have to go to trial.
>If he can delay it until after November and somehow win the presidency then he will likely never have to go to trial.
I'm pretty sure at this point, New York would just say "fuck it" to political deference and force him to go to trial anyway. It's a fucking state court. It might be a long ass appeals process, but if they want to proceed, the feds can't actually stop them. And SCOTUS isn't gonna say the president is immune to state level prosecution no matter how much Republicans might fantasize about it.

Also there would be several months between the election and him assuming office during which he could still be tried.

And all this is assuming he can both delay the trial that long and win, neither of which I see happening. Once the jury starts hearing shit, delay is out the window and he's only got a few weeks to block the start of trial.

Also, a more interesting scenario than him delaying the trial is him delaying the punishment. Bail pending appeal of a conviction is a thing. That would be an absolute shitshow if he won. Republicans would be put in a position where they have to refuse to impeach a convicted felon. I almost wish it would happen, just so we can permanently do away with any pretense that the party is anything but a cult at this point.
It seems likely to me that even if Biden wins in November and Trump is convicted (not just in this trial), the next Republican president after Biden elected in 2028 or 2032 will end up pardoning Trump and his minions anyway to save face. And if Trump happens to die of old age before then his legacy will be insufferably whitewashed and deified like they did to Reagan but worse.


While speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump, 77, gave a standing ovation to his wife of 18 years – then referred to Melania as ‘Mercedes’.

He said: ‘Oh look at that Mercedes, that’s pretty good.’

The blunder is gaining widespread media attention as discussions over both Trump and President Joe Biden’s memory are increasing ahead of the November elections.

Dr John Gartner, a former professor at John Hopkins Medical School, formerly wrote of how Trump, rather than current President Biden, 81, is showing signs of memory loss.

Maybe you forgot this whole shit is performance art. They cannot and will not enforce a simple gag order. What makes anyone think they will enforce any rulings in any of these cases?

Trump will win election and all of this will go away. It's a done deal. You want proof? Name the last time any court enforced any judgment against Trump.

Yeah, I'll fucking wait.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has supported a network of a dozen bases in Ukraine that are "increasingly at risk" if Republicans continue to block $61 billion in funding for Kyiv, the New York Times (NYT) reported on Feb. 25.

The network of bases is the result of a decade of relationship-building between the CIA and Ukraine, according to the NYT, which conducted 200 interviews with current and former intelligence officials in Ukraine, Europe, and the U.S. for the article.

The bases allow the Ukrainian military "to track Russian spy satellites and eavesdrop on conversations between Russian commanders," the NYT said.

"These intelligence networks are more important than ever," now that Russia is intensifying its offensive and Ukraine "more dependent on sabotage and long-range missile strikes that require spies far behind enemy lines."

CIA Director William Burns secretly visited Ukraine on Feb. 22 "to try to reassure Ukrainian leaders," the NYT said, in what was his 10th visit to the country since Russia launched its full-scale invasion.

The relationship between Ukrainian and U.S. intelligence began to deepen in 2015, when then-President Petro Poroshenko appointed Valeriy Kondratiuk to head Ukraine's military intelligence agency.

After the EuroMaidan Revolution in 2014, the U.S. initially distrusted Ukrainian officials and worried about "provoking the Kremlin," the NYT said.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The election of Donald Trump in 2016 "only strengthened" the partnership between Ukrainian intelligence and the CIA, as Trump "had put Russia hawks in key positions, including Mike Pompeo as CIA director and John Bolton as national security adviser."

Prior to Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the only American officials not evacuated from the country were "a small group of CIA officers" who were relocated to a hotel in western Ukraine. The CIA then returned to Kyiv "within weeks" of Russia's withdrawal from the region in April 2022, the NYT said.

In light of anxieties around the $61 billion package, Ukrainian intelligence agencies are now worried whether the CIA will "abandon" them, as "it happened in Afghanistan before," one senior Ukrainian officer told the NYT.

Putin continues to be NATO's most valuable asset, Tucker Carlson advised to avoid high windows and unattended tea


BUDAPEST/STOCKHOLM, Reuters, Feb 26 - Hungary's parliament approved Sweden's NATO accession on Monday, clearing the last hurdle before the historic step by the Nordic country whose neutrality lasted through two world wars and the simmering conflict of the Cold War.
Hungary's vote ended months of delays to complete Sweden's security policy shift and followed a visit by Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson on Friday during which the two countries signed an arms deal.
"Sweden is leaving 200 years of neutrality and military non-alignment behind," Kristersson told a news conference.
"We are joining NATO in order to defend what we are and everything we believe in even better. We are defending our freedom, our democracy and our values, together with others."
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government has faced pressure from NATO allies to fall in line and seal Sweden's accession to the alliance.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg immediately welcomed Hungary's move. "Sweden's membership will make us all stronger and safer," he said on X.
Stockholm abandoned its non-alignment policy for greater safety within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine in 2022.
With Sweden following Finland into NATO, President Vladimir Putin has effectively achieved the very thing he sought to avert when he launched his war in Ukraine - an expansion of the alliance, Western leaders have said.

Tears as Dog Adopted After 900 Days in Shelter Is Returned Within Hours


Adog who was adopted after spending over 900 days in an animal shelter has suffered the heartbreak of being returned just 24 hours later.

Sora first arrived at the Valley Animal Center in Fresno, California, just over two and a half years ago, having been surrendered by her owner. The Valley Animal Center is the largest no-kill animal center in the Central Valley.

For over 900 days, Sora struggled to attract much in the way of attention. That's not entirely surprising given the circumstances, with a 2014 study published in Applied Animal Behaviour Science highlighting how the average shelter visitor interacts with just one dog per visit and that these interactions last just eight minutes.

But staff at the shelter knew Sora had all the attributes necessary to make a great pet.

"Sora is a high-energy dog who loves to play and gets super excited anytime she gets to go on walks," Sim Kaur from the Valley Animal Center told Newsweek.

>Many Republicans who support Nikki Haley say they could never vote for Trump — and it could be a huge problem for his campaign against Joe Biden.

CHARLESTON, S.C. ― Donald Trump may have won the South Carolina Republican primary, but Nikki Haley’s better-than-expected performance here exposed glaring weaknesses in the 2024 GOP front-runner’s campaign that could hobble his chances against Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump beat Haley by 20 points ― an embarrassing loss for the former South Carolina governor, to be sure. However, she won about 40% of the vote cast on Saturday, a significant margin that, when averaged with her similar performance in New Hampshire, underscored that a high number of Republican primary voters simply don’t like Trump.

Those voters might prove to be decisive to Haley on Super Tuesday, when states like Vermont and Utah ― believed to have more moderate GOP bases ― head to the polls, possibly awarding her a much-needed victory and delegates. Haley so far has yet to outright win any of the GOP nominating contests.

Haley signaled on election night, though, that her campaign may have an expiration date, only committing, for now, to stay in the race through Super Tuesday, when 15 states and one territory cast ballots. Many of the states voting March 5 dole out delegates on a winner-takes-all basis — meaning there’s no prize for Haley earning even a significant portion of votes below 50%.

Haley and her allies argue her vote share says something about how Republicans view Trump and how the party will fare in November.

“Forty percent is not some tiny group. There are a huge number of voters in our Republican primary who want an alternative,” Haley told supporters at her election night party at a hotel in Charleston Saturday, confirming that she wouldn’t be dropping out after her fourth major loss.

A US Air Force member is critically injured after he set himself on fire outside an Israeli embassy in protest

WASHINGTON (AP) — An active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force was critically injured Sunday after setting himself ablaze outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., while declaring that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide,” a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

Self-checkouts are disappearing from retailers. Here’s why
Pete Wilgoren
8 hours ago

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — For a while, they looked to be the future of shopping.

Grocery stores, home improvement stores and retail chains were all making room for those blinking green lanes of sweeping, modern shopping convenience (or so they said) — the self-checkouts where you become cashier and bagger.

If you’ve ever visited Target on a Sunday evening and have seen the snaking lane of self-checkout customers weaving into the store, you know.

But you may be seeing fewer of them in major retailers nowadays, and you can blame retail crime across the country.

On social media, one user recently posted a picture of the Walmart in West Hills, California with the self-checkout lanes roped off. The post said all Walmarts have removed self-checkouts due to theft.

>There are other grocery stores
1. Walmart drives out local competition.
2. There being other grocers doesn't mean there are other grocers near enough that by the time you factored in the added drive it wouldn't take longer than to get through Walmart's checkout.
3. Other grocers do that shit too.
4. Walmart owns Sam's Club, just FYI.
In your fucking dreams kike
>You don't think people won't just walk out with the merchandise without paying, (like they are) or just leave without their shit

Back during the covid retardation, I had been standing in line at the grocery store for 25mins and was about to say "fuck it!" and leave my cart and walk out the door, when... the guy in front of me said "fuck it!", (LOUDLY) left his cart and walked out the door. At that point I was stuck, as I didn't want to look like a copy-cat. Ended up standing in line for another 15mins or so...
>Besides, all their competitors do the same fucking thing. Dollar Generals have like 2 people per store MAX for example.

Oakridge Market here in metro Detroit always had two lanes open (they only had 4 total) and the checkout was quick. But their prices were noticeably higher (despite being just a run-of-the-mill grocery store) and now they're out of business.
I really hate thee corporate fuckers. They can't just say, oh people are stealing too much so we're getting rid of self checkouts. No, they have to spin it. We're always looking at ways to innovate, bring something fresh! Improve the shopper experience. These people would rape you and while you cry they'd blame you and say you're being moody and unappreciative.
