>The 23-year-old Canadian, whose exact cause of death is currently unknown, tweeted on December 3 that she did not want to have sex with men who had taken part in gay porn shoots.

>"Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know," the post read.

>The porn actress' comment was strongly criticized by a number of people online, with some saying she had singled out the gay performer.

>One user, who later deleted his Tweet suggested the actress take a cyanide pill.

>"Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety," she said in a later post, "my body, my rules. Honestly, I’m sorry if I offended anyone."

>Her death also sparked a 4Chan threads in which users planned to target left-wingers, liberals, so-called “social justice warriors” (SJWs), and LGBT activists.

Sounds like her issues were magnified by the rapists in the adult entertainment industry.

Women have been selling sex since the invention of selling. Not only do men not force this to happen, we don't have the ability to stop them from doing it, either.

That's not rape, thats prostitution. This chick was a mentally ill prostitute who put her ass up for rent. I actually do feel sorry for her story, but it's still true.

Video of incident https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M62Va6Ft2cw

A police officer charged with the murder of an unarmed man in the US state of Arizona has been found not guilty.

Philip Brailsford shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of a hotel in early 2016.

Bodycam footage of the incident, released after the verdict, showed Mr Shaver on his knees asking officers not to shoot him just before he was killed.

Mr Brailsford was acquitted of murder and a lesser manslaughter charge.

Mr Shaver was shot five times with a semi-automatic rifle as he crawled towards the officers, sobbing.

Prosecutors argued that the officer had responded appropriately, according to his training, when Mr Shaver reached towards his waistband - because he believed there was a concealed firearm there.

Are you a muslim? They dont drink neither.

That is incorrect.

Your schizophrenia is showing.

Fucking lol.
Fake news. A huge part of this case is that the officer who shot was not the one issuing orders; that's a huge part of why he was found not guilty. The sergeant is the person you should be putting blame on, as many fellow officers already have, citing his shoddy orders as both putting his officers in a bad spot but also putting them and the civilian in much more danger by not going by protocol and issuing orders like "lift up your shirt and show your waistband"
Yeah, it wasnt his fault, he just had a twitchy trigger finger in this dangerous situation. How can people defend this unprofessionial behaviour.

Lol he didn't have a twitchy finger because of contact stress, 5 shots in the chest is either an execution or a bona fide epileptic siezure.

Youngstown State University student Albert Maruna was caught red-handed and arrested this week after he allegedly attempted to have sex with a 15-year-old boy, who turned out to be an undercover officer.

Maruna IV, 22, is charged with attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, possessing criminal tools, and importuning.

Austintown police say Maruna started chatting through an online dating app with an undercover officer.

They say Maruna's conversations were sexually graphic, he sent nude pictures of himself and he set up a meeting with someone whom he believed was an underage boy.

According to police, both agreed to get together on Tuesday, Dec. 12, and Maruna would bring lubricant, chicken Alfredo and Sprite.

Police said Maruna traveled to Austintown, where he thought he'd be meeting the teen, when he got there he was arrested.

At the time of his arrest, police say Maruna was carrying an iPhone, a MAC book, three zip drives, a bottle of Astroglide lubrication, Vaseline lotion, two bottles of Sprite, and chicken Alfredo in a Tupperware container.

Maruna is currently being held in the Mahoning County jail.

Great, now that this fat fucking fairy is in custody, thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars will be wasted prolonging his life instead of simply hanging his ass from a lamp post the way he deserves.

Another pervert predator who's life is being protected by corrupt courts and for-profit law enforcement. Back in the day 4chan could have caught this faggot fuck for free and made an example out of him. But now our taxes will be spent feeding and housing this sonofabitch instead.

I'm so ashamed and disgusted with this constant barage of predator-enabling bullshit, im ashamed to be an American now. What the fuck is happening?

Right after Better Korea vs USA.
We have evidence Iran is providing material support to one side in a proxy war against its regional rival. Meanwhile, we know factually, openly, the US is providing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of material support to the other side in that same conflict. It's a story as old as empire-states have existed, and is very familiar to anyone alive since 1945.

That said, we shouldn't fall into the trap of cynicism or moral equivalency -- the losers are the Yemenis, and while propping up one side can sometimes make a civil war end sooner, propping up both almost always makes it longer, bloodier, and end with further resentment among factions.
>Nikki Haley displayed an Iranian missile and told everyone in a press conference she would be submitting this evidence to the US Congress and the UN Security council.

All for the benefit of Israel, a country the size of New Jersey with the population of NYC, that gets $4 BILLION American tax payer dollars every year....
Actually in this case it's equally as much for the benefit of Saudi Arabia, whose regime has often passively or sometimes actively lent aid and comfort to Al Qaeda.

The US and Iran, meanwhile, have comparatively far less reason to hate each other than the US and SA would. It's really just the inertia of national pride (both US and Iranian pride of course, since their revolution is founded on chants of "Death To America!") that keeps us adversarial.

This is the one of the most intelligent posts about war that I've ever read on 4chan, 10/10

The Federal Communications Commission voted 2-1 Friday to take the first step in rolling back, or neutralizing, the complex net neutrality regulations, The Inquisitr reports.

Upon taking over as FCC chair when Donald Trump became president, Commissioner Ajit Pai made it clear that net neutrality and other rules that he regarded as interfering with free-market innovation and competition were on the chopping block.

=>> https://youtu.be/8wo29fcvNHI?list=PLCgo7cyXDiKYUQA2mX8jDYA8sgSPvVBzx

In December 2016, the Los Angeles Times quoted Pai in a speech in which he called for the rollback of the roles.

“We need to fire up the weed whacker and remove those rules that are holding back investment, innovation and job creation.” – Ajit Pai
Pai and GOP colleague Michael O’Reilly today voted to begin the process of drafting new rules and opening them up for public comment that could lead to a net-neutrality phase-out, with Democrat Mignon Clyburn voting against. The commission has two vacancies, but once filled, it will keep the Republicans in the majority.

The FCC’s new plan and notice of proposed rulemaking, called Restoring Internet Freedom, Docket 17-108, proposes, among other things, a reinstatement of the light-touch regulatory framework that prevailed during the Bill Clinton administration and abolition of the vague internet conduct standard. It also wants to restore the jurisdiction of the Federal Trade Commission to oversee ISP privacy practices. Comments are due on July 17, with reply comments required by Aug. 16.

TORONTO – Ontario is conducting an economic study to quantify the cost of anti-black racism as part of a broad new plan.

The anti-black racism strategy, released Thursday, sets out how the provincial government will try to address disparities for black Ontarians in the child welfare, education and justice systems.

The government says the plan aims to tackle the intergenerational impacts of slavery, a history of racial stigmatization and ongoing systemic racism.

It includes doing an economic study, developing targets in child welfare, education and justice, developing anti-black racism programs for government employees and institutions, and creating public awareness initiatives.

The government says black children are more likely to be in foster care and enrolled in lower academic streams, while black men are more likely than white men to interact with the justice system and black women are more likely than white women to be unemployed.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says the anti-black racism strategy makes the government accountable in the fight to eliminate discrimination and inequality that Ontario’s black community endures.

>The government says the plan aims to tackle the intergenerational impacts of slavery

Well thank goodness for that, Canadians should never forget the millions of black slaves working the arctic cotton plantations before they were liberated by the Union Army

That story was in Montreal and it was proven to be totally fake. Both the leaders of the mosque and the construction company involved denied that any such demand ever was made and 2 investigations by municipal and provincial authorities confirmed that there never was any written agreement that women must leave the construction site on Friday's. The only agreement made was to limit noise on Fridays. www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/montreal/mosque-construction-women-report-quebec-minister-says-no-clause-1.4449138
Who ran the story?
TVA, a Quebec news media. Not sure how you would class them compared to worldwide known medias, but I personally always take what they say with a grain of salt. They said the info they had was legit, but was due to misscommunication between the 2 parties. They didn't really apologise or correct the story, they just said "woopsie, guess someone didn't tell us the whole truth or lied to us" and just rolled with it
Nvm they just formerly apologised

>Justin Roiland came under the crosshairs of one angry fan during his presentation at the 2017 Game Awards. Roiland, co-creator of "Rick and Morty," was revealing his the debut trailer for his Squanch Games VR effort "Smith & Smitherson Accounting+" on edge since he was apparently the target of a threatening tweet prior to the Awards.

>The said tweet, which was shared on the website 4chan, read, "That's the final straw, I am attending this year's video game awards with 3 handguns, 2 smg's a shotgun and a dead man's switch attached to a bomb vest. When this meme f*ck takes the stage, I am going to open fire and take out as many of these (censored) as I can until the police take me down. Also, I am spray pointing '/pol/ told me to do it' on the back of my trenchcoat so I can take down those (censored) as well. Wish me luck."

>This threat was spread fast and was even taken seriously enough for The Microsoft Theater to reach out to the authorities, particularly the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on Dec. 6, which was a day before the event. 4chan was also alarmed by the said tweet and had even handed over to the police the internet protocol (IP) address of the account responsible for the comment. Authorities then tracked it back to someone living in the United Kingdom.

>The authorities are now trying to locate whoever posted the tweet despite him/her not actually doing anything at the event, simply for the trouble he caused, which may count as an attempted terror attack.

And yet the Britbongs were pretty quick in locating that kid who shitposted about that soccer player having a heart attack.

But since this incident is an obvious false-flag by the Left to implicate /pol/, the authorities don't seem particularly interested in bringing the miscreant to justice.

Read children, this is what it looks like when someone loses an argument

That is not correct.

Try again, troll.

Jesus fucking christ, you really put that much effort into pretending you have good reasons for defending sex offenses by defending sex offenders with shell game arguments?

When multiple accusers corroborate patterns of perverse and predatory behavior that spans years, and the only defense of the accused is to claim "fake news" and to attack those who are offended against, then logic dictates that one analyzes the probability that multiple accusers and associated witnesses would magically make it all up with corroborating detail, yet somehow with zero factual foundation... It is simply beyond reason to assume that is likely.

This is the difference between principles proof and reasonable doubt. If our corrupt courts and profit-driven law enforcement fail to bring predators to justice because their only real requirement is to defend the law, and not to defend the legitimate victims of abuse or perversion the way they should, then those deprived of justice by the system can always find it in other ways.

That is logical, factual, and self-evident. And that is because it is Natural Law, and Natural Law is the highest Law that exists. Badges, robes, and interweb anons like you need not apply.

I stand by my argument. You are all full of shit, and I suspect the reason you wish to distract from the core of this issue is because you approve of sex offenses. Your lack of reason betrays your real motives.

Can you even OPERATE mentally without resorting to EXTENSIVE logical fallacy?

You are constantly GETTING WORSE on this front as time goes on, relying on logical fallacy as a SUBSTITUTE FOR logic.


Now, go ahead and play your ad hominem b*llsh*t games on me. I'm always up for taking them and tossing your own sh*t right back in your face, giving it a good smear, and making you take a good sniff of your own turds so you can't keep pretending they smell like roses simply because you declare it thus and so. It's basically why local BAMN and Antifa cells have decided I'm so evil and conservative and Republican and racist sexist anti-gay and Nazi apologist and in need of "shutting down" and "silencing" for the "greater good." Because they are so in favor of tolerance and fighting bigotry and all, just like you and your "liberal progressive" self. If they weren't a bunch of petty incompetent temper tantrum throwing CHILDREN who apparently can't figure out that trail cams exist and that vandalism is a crime as well as that stuffing nasty things into people's mailboxes is a FEDERAL FELONY and that sending me "anonymous" threatening messages online isn't NEARLY as "anonymous" as they think have thus given me a MOUNTAIN of doumentation with which to tell them to back the F off or else, I'd be worried.

I'm not wasting anymore of my life on you, troll. You understand exactly what the fuck im saying because you're an enabling piece of shit and you know it.

I guess you're probably not going to give me your real address after all, wasnt limely to begin with but i had to try. So, I will save up the justice you deserve and dump it on the next sex offender I transform into a candle.

Whenever I find the next one, I will send him your regards.

Cheers, faggot.


>High-ranking Republicans are hinting that, after their tax overhaul, the party intends to look at cutting spending on welfare, Social Security, Medicare and other parts of the social safety net.

>House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said recently that he wants Republicans to focus in 2018 on reducing spending on government programs. Last month, President Donald Trump said welfare reform will “take place right after taxes, very soon, very shortly after taxes,” according to The Washington Examiner.

>As Republicans advocate spending cuts, they have frequently cited a need to reduce the national deficit while growing the economy.

>“You also have to bring spending under control. And not discretionary spending. That isn’t the driver of our debt. The driver of our debt is the structure of Social Security and Medicare for future beneficiaries,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said this week.

>While whipping votes for a GOP tax bill on Thursday, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, attacked “liberal programs” for the poor and said Congress needed to stop wasting Americans’ money.

>“We’re spending ourselves into bankruptcy,” Hatch said. “Now, let’s just be honest about it: We’re in trouble. This country is in deep debt. You don’t help the poor by not solving the problems of debt, and you don’t help the poor by continually pushing more and more liberal programs through.”

Wouldn't subsidies create an artificially inflated industry?
It'd make businesses more profitable to comepnsate for higher labor costs, and encourage more investment so that the economy keeps growing. If businesses depend on those subsidies to just survive, as you claim, isn't it in everyone's best interest to provide those subsidies instead of just letting our industry die off?
No, because those industries are artificially propped up and not serving a benefit. Everything is a pro/con.

Look at the corn industry. It should not be as large as it is today, and we're all suffering from that now. Now- if the government cut the umbilical the corn industry would fucking tank. We've only allayed the inevitable
>All these kekservative tears over "BIG OVEN MITT!!!"
What about touching that insane military budget?


A Moscow court has found former Russian Economy Minister Aleksei Ulyukayev guilty of taking a "large bribe" in a high-profile corruption case and sentenced him to eight years in a strict-regime prison.

Ulyukayev called the sentence "unfair" as he was led from the courtroom in handcuffs after the December 15 hearing, and another prominent former government minister tweeted that the verdict was "horrible."

Judge Larisa Semyonova read out the verdict and sentence after a delay of some 90 minutes in starting the hearing. The court barred media from broadcasting the hearing live.

"Ulyukayev knew and was aware of the character of his actions," Semyonova said during the reading of the verdict, which lasted nearly three hours.

Ulyukayev is the highest-ranking official to be arrested since the Stalin era, and the case underscored rifts in Russia's ruling elite ahead of an election that seems certain to hand President Vladimir Putin a six-year term that could be his last.

Ukyukayev was accused of taking a $2 million bribe from Igor Sechin -- the CEO of state oil giant Rosneft and a longtime associate of Putin -- in exchange for his ministry's approval of the sale of regional oil company Bashneft to Rosneft.

An algorithm deduced the sexuality of people on a dating site with up to 91% accuracy raising tricky ethical questions


The study from Stanford University – which found that a computer algorithm could correctly distinguish between gay and straight men 81% of the time, and 74% for women – has raised questions about the biological origins of sexual orientation, the ethics of facial-detection technology and the potential for this kind of software to violate people’s privacy or be abused for anti-LGBT purposes. The machine intelligence tested in the research, which was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and first reported in the Economist, was based on a sample of more than 35,000 facial images that men and women publicly posted on a US dating website. The researchers, Michal Kosinski and Yilun Wang, extracted features from the images using deep neural networks, meaning a sophisticated mathematical system that learns to analyze visuals based on a large dataset

The research found that gay men and women tended to have “gender-atypical” features, expressions and “grooming styles”, essentially meaning gay men appeared more feminine and vice versa. The data also identified certain trends, including that gay men had narrower jaws, longer noses and larger foreheads than straight men, and that gay women had larger jaws and smaller foreheads compared to straight women. Human judges performed much worse than the algorithm, accurately identifying orientation only 61% of the time for men and 54% for women. When the software reviewed five images per person, it was even more successful – 91% of the time with men and 83% with women. Broadly, that means “faces contain much more information about sexual orientation than can be perceived and interpreted by the human brain” the authors wrote
