After closing the border with Brazil earlier this week, Venezuela has now closed its border with Colombia and further severed diplomatic and political ties, expelling Colombian embassy staff (archived). Venezuela's government is resisting efforts by the US departments of foreign meddling to build out destabilizing logistical infrastracture under the pretext of delivering humanitarian aid. While closing the border with Brazil, Venezuelan military forces reportedly engaged in a firefight against adversaries seeking to keep a border crossing open. The opposing force allegedly engaged during the firefight is being meme'd in Anglophone mainstream publications as "unarmed indigenous activists" (archived).
Numerous "family friendly" advertisers have ceased spending on Youtube after the fact numerous Youtube users had been using videos featuring children as a sort of "soft core" child porn, this is in contrast to the "hard core" child porn produced and consumed by US "law enforcement" (archived). Apparently someone pointed out to Disney and Nestle that their ads were appearing with content that showed children "compromising positions" to the adoration of the Youtube commenter community.
This happens to coincide with Youtube moving to demote popular content they describe as politically "questionable", something they have not done with content softly sexualizing small children.
Kamala Harris, the current Pantsuit frontrunner for the opportunity to challenge US President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, has been damned by her own father over statements slandering the Jamaican people as prolific smokers of cannabis flowers (archived). Kamala's father Donald Harris stated to a Jamaican news outlet:
“My dear departed grandmothers(whose extraordinary legacy I described in a recent essay on this website), as well as my deceased parents , must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”
Kamala is presently pursuing a campaign strategy of politely asking the US "Will you pretty please let me be your cool mommy?" She smoked/smokes weed and everything.
USG.Alphabet's Google department is trying to issue an apology for equiping a "home security" product marketed by their "Nest" brand with a secret, undeclared microphone (archived). They are claiming the secret surveillance microphone wasn't supposed to be a secret. After other parties independently discovered the microphone exists, Google quickly moved to enable intentional interactions on the part of the purchaser with the microphone and quietly updated all their marketing materials to acknowledge the microphone's existence.
Ohio highschool student Nicholas Sandmann is suing Jeff Bezos' Washington Post for a quarter billion USD in damages over a harassment campaign spearheaded by the organization aimed at demonizing the teenager (archived). The amount of damages being pursued happens to coincide with the amount Bezos paid for the Washington Post organization. Sandmann's face and personal information including where he attends school were repeatedly published by the Washinton Post alongside accusations Sandmann is literally the face of evil in America (archived):
Ask just about anyone who is not straight, white and male what they see in that smirk and you’ll most likely open up a world of hurt. Memories of continual bullying and other abuse at the hands of entitled men and boys who weren’t or never feared being held accountable. For my friend Jeff Krehely, executive vice president of the Roosevelt Institute and an openly gay white man whom I consider one of the generals of the LGBTQ civil rights movement, ‘the smirk” was too much.
Sandmann doesn’t think he has anything to apologize for, nor does he believe he did anything wrong. Fine. I can understand why. But until folks like him bother — for even just a minute — to see how their own actions are perceived and compound pain, these racial Rorschach tests will keep happening. More smirks, more confrontations, more division.
A professional activist of advanced age got in the kids face. The kid politely smiled in an absurd situation. The Washington Post organized a campaign of harassment, demonization, and hate against this particular kid based around nothing but their own insecurities and projections.
Teachers in West Virginia are striking because they are outraged concessions they won in the form of pay increases and other personal incentives last year lead to a reduction of the rest of West Virginia's education budget this year (archived). Per the laws on the bookin West Virginia, teacher's strikes are illegal. This situation raises the serious question as to whether cause, effect, and finitude in the West Virginia curriculum?
Jussie Smollett, a black homosexual actor in Chicago, is very indignant that when he reported a hate crime all of the evidence ended up leading to the conclusion he hired two Nigerian actors to stage the incident (archived). Mainstream pantsuitist publications ran with Smollet's claims that he was assaulted by two MAGA chanting white boys with bleach as he left a bar in Chicago. Smollet reported the event as a hate crime leading to Chicago PD taking the case of criminal white boys in their camera infested city very seriously. Only two "persons of interest" could be found, and those two persons of interest ended up being Nigerian extras Smollet worked with on his TV production. The two Nigerians were taken and interrogated while being held for ~48 hours, presumably at one of Chicago PD's numerous black sites.
Filing a false police report in Illinois is on the books as an aggravated, felony degree of "disorderly conduct" carrying a sentence of up to 3 years in prison.
The recently elected Socialist government of Spain has given the family of late Spanish leader Francisco Franco a mere 15 days to choose a new burial place for their beloved folllowing the passing of an "exhumation bill" (archived). Franco came power in 1939 to end the country's bloody civil war and maintained the peace through his death in 1975. Franco is presently interred in a memorial to the Spanish Civil War's dead which he ordered built as an act of atonement for the price he paid in Spanish lives to achieve peace. Meanwhile, the fellows who passed a bill to exhume this particular departed man benefit from living 80 years after that man stopped the bloodshed.
Amazon, a Jeff Bezos production, announced via the Washington Post, another Jeff Bezos production, that Amazon will not move forwards with developing a second headqueaters in New York City after several grand announcements saying they would (archived). The plan approved by New York governor Cuomo and New York mayor Bill De Blasio would have seen 3 billion USD in tax abatements and other incentives subsidize this tin woman of Jeff's after Jeff ran a national contest soliciting such offers and promises none of these cities would abide the tin woman passing his dick pic around to all her friends that aren't him (archived).
When the plan was announced last year it drew opposition on two fronts:
- The state and municipal legislative bodies were outraged that Bill De Blasio's New York could possibily need to pay a business to move there. New York is big! New York was important! Why do they have to now bribe businesses to choose New York over Kansas City?
- The people in the neighborhoods grew indignant that money and jobs would follow this development into their neighborhood. Their poor neighborhood would be doomed to GENTRIFY! It would become like all those other neighborhoods they can't afford.
Another Bezos Bezzle Bungle bites the dust.
"Royal" assent was given to a "Counter terrorism and border security" bill that purports to make viewing "terrorist content", including this very article, a criminal offense (archived). Per the "law", having clicked on a link to "terrorist" content is sufficient to begin accumulating transgressions against the crown leading up to a hypothetical 15 years in prison.
