VIRAL MEMETAGE: Pepe The Frog Declared A Hate Symbol By ADL

VIRAL MEMETAGE: Pepe The Frog Declared A Hate Symbol By ADL

avatar

The infamous 4chan, meme pepe the frog that recently was seen viral as a protester screamed “pepe” at a Hillary Clinton rally, has been declared a symbol of hate by the ADL (Anti-Defamation League.) Pepe the frog has had a very sad morning today sitting in his cookie monster pajamas sipping his coffee learning on CNN that he is now declared a hate symbol.

pepesadfrog

“Y U NO liek me pepe has said.” 4chan has responded with the same rhetoric as usual calling ADL newfags.

This is the equivalent to declaring Grumpy Cat too mean or the Antoine Dodson meme racist/sexist/homophobic they literally just declared a meme a hate symbol?

What about Sesame Street’s Bert? Everyone knows Bert is Evil like GOOGLE!

Does this mean that anyone who uses Pepe or says “Pepe” will be added to ADL’s list?

So many questions so little time, much wow.

Ermahgerd what’s next? 911 truth memes are supporting ISIS/Terrorism? “But wait there’s more a third building fell on 911 WTC7” Billy Mays, said.

Double rainbow all the way OH MY GOD!

Facebook Has given the Police the Ability to Remove Public Access to Posts

Facebook Has given the Police the Ability to Remove Public Access to Posts

Horrifyingly, Facebook Has given the Police the Ability to Remove Public Access to Posts—Such as Live Videos of Police Brutality by Maddy Myers |

Korryn Gaines’ name probably sounds familiar to you. She was killed by Baltimore County police officers in a standoff on August 1, 2016, in Randallstown, Maryland, near Baltimore. Over the course of the incident, Gaines’ five-year-old son was also shot in the arm. Many have theorized that racism played a role in how the police treated Gaines and her family, including this child abuse negotiator, who has faced similar situations and found ways to de-escalate them non-violently.

The details surrounding the standoff and Gaines’ death have become yet another example of how social media has given citizens a chance to broadcast their interactions with police, thereby allowing the filmed evidence to speak for itself. Gaines broadcast information about her experiences on Instagram and on Facebook, presumably hoping to secure evidence for future use. The police contacted Facebook, which also owns Instagram, and they requested that Gaines’ social media accounts be shut down.

The Guardian reports that the police used a “law enforcement portal” through Facebook that allowed them to successfully ensure that Gaines’ posts would no longer be available to the public.

Baltimore County police chief James Johnson said that Gaines’ accounts have not been deleted and that the information contained in them would be used as evidence, but he did confirm that the police halted her live broadcasts: “We did in fact reach out to social media authorities to deactivate her account, to take it offline, if you will. Why? In order to preserve the integrity of the negotiation process with her and for the safety of our personnel [and] her child. Ms. Gaines was posting video of the operation as it unfolded. Followers were encouraging her not to comply with negotiators’ request that she surrender peacefully.”

Although the Baltimore County police department has recently implemented a body camera program, not all of the officers in the department have their cameras yet, and none of the officers involved in the standoff with Gaines had cameras. So, whatever footage she captured might well serve as the only available filmed evidence. According to The Guardian’s report, no one seems to have access to Gaines’ videos at this time (other than the people who could’ve downloaded them illicitly before her accounts went offline). The police have issued a warrant to request them from Facebook. Presumably, Facebook has not deleted them, although they are not currently available to the public or even to the police as yet.

 sting ray

One recent example of Facebook’s live video feature ending up as evidence would be the circumstances surrounding Philando Castile’s death at the hands of police. Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, filmed Castile during an interaction with police that began as a traffic stop and ended in Castile’s death. The police subsequently took Reynolds’ phone from her, and she theorizes that they manually deleted the video from her profile via the Facebook app. If true, this would constitute police tampering with evidence. Facebook later restored the video to Reynolds’ feed after adding a content warning to it. At that time, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made what appeared to be a statement in support of citizens’ usage of the Facebook live video feature for this type of situation:

The situation with Gaines seems depressingly similar in many ways, except that in this case, the public has now become aware of the existence of this supposed “law enforcement portal” that allows the police to demand that a Facebook and/or Instagram account be taken “offline” (this appears to mean “private,” since the accounts have not been deleted, but are no longer accessible to anyone). In this case, the police had a lot of lead time in order to decide to do this, because Gaines began making social media posts about her experiences on Monday morning when the police served her a warrant. This gave the police a chance to issue a request to Facebook and Instagram through the “law enforcement portal” to make her account unavailable to the public.

It’s not yet clear whether Gaines’ posts will ever be set back to being public again, as occurred with Diamond Reynolds’ video of Philando Castile’s death. Perhaps Reynolds’ video was restored because of the circumstances of its removal; she alleges that the police used her account to delete the video, as opposed to going through the more official-seeming channel of the “law enforcement portal.” But what are the implications of this supposed “law enforcement portal”? How do the police decide what videos should not be made available to the public?

The Baltimore County police chief’s explanation is that the live videos were removed during the standoff because of concerns about other users potentially encouraging Gaines not to “surrender peacefully.” Even if you agree with Chief Johnson on that evaluation, what’s the larger explanation for why the videos are no longer available to anyone? Is there any reason why the police would be preventing the public from seeing Gaines’ videos and posts at this point, since she clearly intended them to be public posts?

The entire case has a lot of disturbing implications for civilian journalism going forward. After reading Mark Zuckerberg’s statement about Diamond Reynolds’ video, I had hopes that for all its faults, the Facebook live video feature could prove to be an important resource for marginalized people facing mistreatment and violence by police. However, now that I know this “law enforcement portal” exists, I no longer have any faith in Facebook’s ability to stand by its users.

It seems to me like Facebook wants to have its journalism cake and eat it too. After the fall-out surrounding Facebook’s “Trending Topics” algorithm and Facebook’s employment of “News Curators,” I came to understand that Facebook exerted a certain amount of control over its News Feed. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, so long as its members are aware of it. Just like a journalistic outlet, the Facebook News Feed is designed to show you stories that will interest you and inform you. Also like a journalistic outlet, the Facebook News Feed has a bias, because even algorithms have a bias—and, of course, Facebook hires former journalists in order to help design its curation methods.

Viewed through that lens, Facebook (and other social networks) serves as a new twist on the idea of a front page of a newspaper. Although these algorithmic curation methods are different from the journalistic methods of decades past, they don’t seem to be going anywhere, and that has its advantages and disadvantages. Many outlets (including this one) rely a lot on Facebook’s algorithms and curation in order to see their stories succeed.

A lot of people get their news from social media these days, which again isn’t necessarily bad, except that so much of that news is curated and controlled in ways that are invisible to us all. By allowing social networks to decide what we do and don’t see, we’re demonstrating a whole lot of trust in them to know what’s right, and I don’t really trust Facebook to know what I “should” see, especially now that I know more about how they operate.

The whole point of a free press is that governmental influence is notsupposed to be involved. If the police have direct access over what is and isn’t available to us on Facebook, then Facebook shouldn’t be considered a journalistic outlet. Period. It’s bad enough that we have to worry about corporate influence over Facebook’s algorithms. Thinking about police intervention has much more disturbing implications, because Facebook and other social media has a huge amount of control over what we see online.

Usually, when people are complaining about their right to “free speech” on the Internet, they’re complaining about their right to harass marginalized people. But these are the issues that they should be concerned about instead, if they really care about free speech and, y’know, that other clause in the first amendment: the freedom of the press.

If Facebook wants to be seen as a journalistic outlet, and it seems as though they do, then they should operate according to their own internal editorial standards, not according to the whims of advertisers and definitely not according to the demands of law enforcement. The existence of this portal sets a dangerous precedent, and it’s an indication that citizens who want to document their own experiences should use video streaming outlets other than Facebook in order to do so, because it’s now very clear from this case which side Facebook is actually on, and it’s not yours.

US To Suspend Syria Ceasefire With Russia, Prepares New “Military Options”

US To Suspend Syria Ceasefire With Russia, Prepares New “Military Options”

avatar

In the most dramatic diplomatic escalation involving the Syrian conflict in the past years, yesterday John Kerry issued an ultimatum to Russia, in which he warned his colleague Lavrov to stop bombing Aleppo or else the US would suspend all cooperation and diplomacy with Russia.

24 hours later, this appears to be precisely what is about to take place, leading to an even greater geopolitical shock in Syria. According to Retuers, the United States is expected to tell Russia on Thursday it is suspending their diplomatic engagement on Syria following the Russian-backed Syrian government’s intense attacks on Aleppo, U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity.

Why now and what happens next? According to US officials, the Obama administration is now considering tougher responses to the Russian-backed Syrian government assault on Aleppo, including military options. According to Reuters, the new discussions were being held at “staff level,” and have yet to produce any recommendations to President Barack Obama, who has resisted ordering military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s multi-sided civil war.

However, now that diplomacy with Russia is set to end, this will give the greenlight for Obama to send in US troops in Syria, with Putin certain to respond appropriately, in what will be the biggest military escalation in the Syrian proxy war in its five and a half year history.

The Run Begins: Deutsche Bank Hedge Fund Clients Withdraw Excess Cash

The Run Begins: Deutsche Bank Hedge Fund Clients Withdraw Excess Cash

avatar

Deutsche Bank concerns just went to ’11’ as Bloomberg reports a number of funds that clear derivatives trades with Deutsche Bank AG have withdrawn some excess cash and positions held at the lender, a sign of counterparties’ mounting concerns about doing business with Europe’s largest investment bank.

While the vast majority of Deutsche Bank’s more than 200 derivatives-clearing clients have made no changes, some funds that use the bank’s prime brokerage service have moved part of their listed derivatives holdings to other firms this week, according to an internal bank document seen by Bloomberg News.

Millennium Partners, Capula Investment Management and Rokos Capital Management are among about 10 hedge funds that have cut their exposure, said a person familiar with the situation who declined to be identified talking about confidential client matters.

 

The hedge funds use Deutsche Bank to clear their listed derivatives transactions because they are not members of clearinghouses. Millennium, Capula and Rokos declined to comment when contacted by phone or e-mail.

Which explains why short-dated CDS is soaring.

 

 

 

“Our trading clients are amongst the world’s most sophisticated investors,” Michael Golden, a spokesman for Deutsche Bank, said in an e-mailed statement.

 

“We are confident that the vast majority of them have a full understanding of our stable financial position, the current macroeconomic environment, the litigation process in the U.S. and the progress we are making with our strategy.”

Clients review their exposure to counterparties to avoid situations like the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and MF Global’s 2011 bankruptcy when hedge funds had billions of dollars of assets frozen until the resolution of lengthy legal proceedings.

As expected, Deutsche Bank stock in NY is sliding.

 

If the most sophisticated professionals in the world are withdrawing cash, why are German depositors leaving their life savings at risk… ahead of a long weekend in Germany (Monday is a bank holiday).

*  *  *

And for those believing that there is no contagion and this is all ring-fenced…

 

And US banks are sliding…

 

As a reminder, if the liquidity run forces DB to start unwinding or being forced to novate derivatives, it could get ugly.

 

Those who have cash parked at Deutsche Bank, and at last check there was about €566 billion, they may want to consider moving it for the time being to a safer bank.

 

* * *

Earlier this morning, we reported that Europe is experiencing a sudden and acute dollar shortage, which we attributed to Deutsche Bank. It now appears this was accurate. Since Deutsche’s recent highs, the short-end of the EUR-USD basis swap curve has collapsed:

Simplifying – this chart measures the degree of USD shortage
(willingness to spend money just to get USD now) across time – the lower
the level, the more desperate for USDs.

And no, it’s not a quarter-end issue:

 

Still not sure… Then explain why European banks just increased
their demand for USDs from The ECB’s 7-day lending facility by over
2000%…

As @Landonthomasjr notes, since 2009: DB shareholders put up 13.5 billion euros in equity. DB has paid 19.3 billion euro in bonuses. Perhaps they should have saved some of that cash eh?

Simply put – trust in the European Banking system is faltering, counterparty risk hedging is accelerating:

And liquidity concerns are exploding, ahead of Germany’s bank holiday on Monday.

The war on free-speech continues as a Latino Trump Supporter was Physically Assaulted for Wearing a Make America Great Again Hat at El Cajon Protest. 

In the video predominately self described Black Lives Matters Protesters relentlessly attack a conservative Feras Jabro who was openly showing his support for Donald Trump by wearing Trumps now Iconic “Make America Great Again” red hat through a Black Lives Matter protest. Counter protest are nothing new in the world of civil activism. The protesters angry about the recent police shooting of Alfred Olango chased the “Trump supporter while throwing bottles,” according to Fox News correspondent, Will Carr.

“I’m being assaulted just for the hat I’m wearing,” Feras Jabro  says in a separate YouTube video, in which he is wearing a red baseball cap with Donald Trump’s signature slogan. 

This is more proof that the liberal Mainstream media has done a fantastic job in promoting their hate, as they claim they’re against “Hate and bigotry,” they take part in it more than any other group in the USA right now.

#BREAKING: New Jersey Transit Train Derailed, Hundreds Injured, 3 DEAD

#BREAKING: New Jersey Transit Train Derailed, Hundreds Injured, 3 DEAD

avatar

A transit train has derailed in New Jersey at a Hoboken train station, injuring over a hundred people.

The train struck a wall and pillars, causing the roof to collapse on the train after entering the station around 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

hoboken

A video inside the station shows catastrophic damage and debris scattered all over as officials are searching for survivors and emergency personnel are rescuing people from the wreck.

Three people have been killed, and more than 100 were injured from the crash.

“We approached the station and the train felt like it never stopped,” Jamie Weatherhead-Sal, who was standing at the door between the second and the third car, told NBC4 New York. “The train just kept going, the lights shut off, people started yelling.”

Another passenger said the “train felt as if it never stopped.”

“It was for a couple seconds, but it felt like an eternity, I saw a woman pinned under the concrete. A lot of people were bleeding, one guy was crying,” said Bhagyesh Sha.

NBC Staffer Aracely Hillebrech was on the platform at the station and reported –

“I was about 30 feet from it, I heard screeching and we saw the train and someone yelled ‘run. We heard the train crash and heard the sound of water as the roof collapsed. People were scrambling and running away from the train.” Hillebrecht said she saw people who were “really hurt” and “some people couldn’t walk.”

NJ Transit has tweeted out alternatives to the railway system saying, Rail service is suspended NJT bus & private carriers as well as NY Waterway ferry is accepting rail tickets and passes as a result of a train accident.

There is no information yet on what caused the crash but in 2014, an Amtrak train carrying important CEO’s and Bankers derailed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania around the time when Bankers and CEO’s were being killed to suppress large lawsuits.

Senior FBI Agent, Ted L. Gunderson has previously said before that the elite use trains, plane crashes, etc. – to assassinate individuals instead of murdering them in cold blood.

Was this an assassination attempt of prominent people or simply an accident?

This happened once before in 1996 in Hoboken, NJ, when 200 people were injured and 3 were killed so maybe it is a legitimate non-manipulated accident and possibly the rails should have been replaced and it’s negligence?

It’s important to ask relevant questions and not just become emotionally attached to a situation so the first questions that need to be determined is how did the crash happen – was it an error by the conductor? The next question is who was on the train – were there any deemed important people on the train?

With that said, without supporting factual information, lets not jump to conclusions and speculate, but I still want to see a full manifest of who was on that train. With the investigative mind set out of the way this is a tragedy and I hope that most of these people are okay and sustained minor not critical injuries. No matter how this accident happened any loss of life is always a horrible way to start the day and my condolences are with friends and family members of the three people killed in this incident.

THIS IS A BREAKING STORY, STAY TUNED TO WE ARE CHANGE WE WILL KEEP YOU UP TO DATE AS MORE INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.

Congress Passes Emergency Bill To Prevent Government Shut Down

Congress Passes Emergency Bill To Prevent Government Shut Down

Image result for Congress passes funding bill averting government shutdown

A lone worker passes by the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, October 8, 2013 www.reuters.com

The U.S. Congress approved a stop-gap funding bill late Wednesday night that averts a looming federal government shutdown and accord to the main-stream media “provides urgently needed money to help battle an outbreak of the Zika virus.”

Averting an election-year crisis, Congress sent President Barack Obama a bill to keep the government operating through Dec. 9 and provide $1.1 billion in to reportedly battle the Zika virus.

The House cleared the measure by a 342-85 vote. Passage of the bipartisan legislation came shortly after Republicans and Democrats ended a months-long fight over whether Washington should provide aid to the city of Flint, Michigan, as it struggles with a crisis over contaminated drinking water.

The spending measure was the Hill’s last major to-do item before the election in November, and its completion keeps the U.S. government operating from Oct. 1, the start of the new fiscal year, until Dec. 9, and allows lawmakers to jet home in order to campaign to save their jobs.

The bill caps months of wrangling over money to being used to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus, and also includes $500 million for rebuilding assistance to flood-ravaged Louisiana and other states, however to the informed citizen these additions are only there to make this late season debt increase more acceptable.

The White House said Obama will sign the measure and praised the progress on Flint.

The temporary spending bill sped through the House shortly after the chamber passed a water projects bill containing the breakthrough compromise on Flint. The move to add the Flint package to the water projects bill, negotiated by top leaders in both parties and passed Wednesday by a 284-141 vote, was the key to lifting the Democratic blockade on the separate spending bill.

The deal averts a potential federal shutdown and comes just three days before deadline. It defuses a lengthy, frustrating battle over Zika spending. Democrats claimed a partial victory on Flint while the GOP-dominated Louisiana delegation won a down payment on Obama’s $2.6 billion request for their state.

The politicking and power plays enormously complicated what should have been a routine measure to avoid an election-eve government shutdown.

ANDREW TAYLOR, ASSOCIATED PRESS.

The temporary government-wide spending bill had stalled in the Senate Tuesday over Democrats’ demands that the measure include $220 million in Senate-passed funding to help Flint and other cities deal with lead-tainted water. The Flint issue arose as the final stumbling block after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., added the flood aid for Louisiana to the spending bill.

Democrats argued it was unfair that the water crisis in Flint has gone on for more than a year with no assistance, while Louisiana and other states are getting $500 million for floods that occurred just last month. Democrats played a strong hand in the negotiations and had leverage because Republicans controlling the House and Senate were eager to avoid a politically harmful shutdown six weeks before the election.

In a series of carefully orchestrated maneuvers after the Senate approved the temporary funding, the House passed a wide-ranging water resources bill containing $170 million to assist Flint by a vote of 399-25.

Democrats have demanded action on the crisis, which stems from dangerous levels of lead in Flint’s drinking water.

A Senate version of the bill contains $220 million for Flint and other cities with problem water systems.

The two chambers will have to hammer out compromise legislation after the Nov. 8 presidential and congressional elections. Wednesday’s flurry of activity in Congress came as lawmakers rushed to recess this week until after the elections.

Flint’s drinking water became tainted when the city, then under state control, began drawing from the Flint River in 2014 to save money. Regulators failed to ensure the water was treated properly and lead from aging pipes leached into the water supply. As many as 12,000 children have been exposed to lead in water, officials say.

There were other winners and losers in the scramble to produce the legislation.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, failed to win a provision to block the U.S. government from transferring the Commerce Department’s role in governing the internet’s domain name addressing systems to a nonprofit consortium known as ICANN.

And Democrats failed to use the bill to reverse a ban engineered last year by McConnell on proposals to allow the Securities and Exchange Commission to require publicly-traded corporations to disclose political spending permitted under the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision allowing unlimited political spending by businesses.

The spending bill also includes full-year funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs. That measure permits veterans with war injuries to receive in vitro fertilization treatments. A longtime ban on such treatments — demanded in the early 1990s by anti-abortion lawmakers concerned about destroyed embryos — has been lifted.
