Jeff Bezos' Amazon has recalled numerous sun and eclipse viewing products exactly one week before a total solar eclipse crosses North America (archived). Amazon is alleging that numerous "reports of counterfeits" have compelled them to undertake this blanket recall though Amazon has never been particularly remorseful about selling counterfeit products in the past. The specter of mass blindness however seems to have moved Amazon to act in this one instance.
In typically Incan fashion, Amazon recalled products from a number of their "partner" vendors without any regard for paper work previously submitted establishing authenticity and safety of the recalled products. Naturally this has thoroughly fucked Amazon's "partners" who are now sitting on substantial inventory tied to an infrequent event Amazon has decided to write off. Likewise Amazon's Incan decision making has left their customers panicked, customers who are by and large incapable of assessing the safety of their now recalled purchases with time burning rapidly in advance of the sun's temporary egress from the sky.
As of this writing, the few remaining Amazon listed eclipse viewers sell for fiat equivalent to 0.05-0.1 BTC at current rates offered by fiat/Bitcoin interfaces. Qntra readers who wish to view the eclipse are advised that a welding visor which can be set at "shade 13" is the sweet spot for intermittent direct observations of the sun. Shade 12 offers a lower margin of comfort while shade 14 is too dark to allow a quality viewing experience. However, there is no remedy for having "partnered" with Amazon.
Violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia as the city government and local police conspired with Antifa terrorists to cancel a rally promoting understanding, tolerance, and unity among American conservatives and instead bake a riot. Decisions made by Charlottesville mayor Michael Singer (WOT:nonperson), Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (WOT:nonperson), and the Charlottesville Police Department (WOT:nonpeople) turned a planned peaceful assembly into a mass casualty incident with fatalities.
The planned event dubbed "United the Right" had already been subject to overt leftist opposition since its announcement was granted an assembly permit and police protection only after a court ordered the City of Charlottesville to accommodate the American public's right to assemble in public spaces.
On the morning of the event Charlottesville police allowed Antifa terrorists to assault event attendees with excrement and chemical weapons as they travelled to the reserved park space. The approved event plans which called for physical separation between attendees of the conservative unity event and "protesters" were not implemented.1
Then minutes before the event could begin and after the crowd had assembled, police declared an unlawful assembly, withdrew to the outside of the crowd and kettled the conservative event attendees and Antifa terrorist together. The result was an escalation of violence that "no one could have predicted".
During the brawl, where it appears red blooded American conservatives were happy to contain their fight to engaging Antifa aggressors, a number of Antifa terrorists began spreading their violent outburst. They encircled a passing motorist in his vehicle and attacked the 20 year old motorist, attempting to remove him from his car. This lead to the motorist's Dodge Challenger2 colliding with a collection of Antifa bodies in an apparent attempt to escape. The motorist has been detained on murder charges by Charlottesville police.
At some point a police helicopter also crashed killing two occupants.
America's cold civil war appears to be getting much hotter.
Buttfunex announced in a blog post today that "effective immediately, we will no longer be accepting verification requests for U.S. individuals", and would discontinue all services to existing U.S. customers over the next 90 days. The news follows a decision by Buttfunex earlier this week to suspend trading of "Digital Asset Tokens" or ICO funbux "Pursuant to the recent report of investigation issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission".

A school board removed the name of the Lynch family from a number of schools established on land donated for their construction by the same family (archived). The school board in the case cites "racial insensitivity" as their justification for stealing the Family's history and instead crediting the schools establishment entirely to the kleptocratic embrace of herdemocracy.
Deposed socialist former US dictator Hussein Bahamas has yet offer amends for the his racial insensitivity in appointing a woman named Lynch to head Federal "law enforcement" during his reign of terror which was characterized by endemic extrajudicial killings.
News is emerging that Y Combinator darling Airbnb has begun firing customers for supporting particular political creeds. In typically SillyCon Valley hypocritical fashion, the leftist provacateurs masquerading as a "business startup" are pointing to their "Community Commitment"1 which demands the platform's users
accept people regardless of race, religion, national origin and other identifiers
Despite this Airbnb refused to eat their own dogfood when they cancelled the accounts of a number of individuals affiliated with groups professing conservative political and religious creeds attending a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. In doing so Airbnb not only denied these activists the opportunity to use their platform on a systematically discriminatory basis, they denied the booked "hosts" the opportunity to collect revenue on their investment properties.
At this point there is little room to doubt that the VC circus in SillyCon Valley is far more concerned with reinventing new bureaucracies than engaging in business of any sort. Where before the circus freaks settled for covert political manipulation of their platforms, they have now become either bold or desperate enough to act overtly on their ideology of hate.
The leader of the legacy Senate GOP, Mitch McConnell, is trying to console America in the wake of his Senate's failure to get on the Trump train by offering "At least Hillary Clinton isn't president". This comes as McConnell allowed his Senate, which pretends to share a political party with the President, to meet "Pro Forma" through their August recess denying elected President Donald Trump the ability to fill vacancies through uncontested 'recess appointments'. The 2018 Midterm election is only 15 months away, tick tock.
During a rally celebrating United States President Donald Trump in West Virginia, the state's governor Jim Justice announced he would be leaving the pantsuit party and joining Trump's political movement. This leaves Senator Joe Manchin the only pantsuit aligned politician holding a West Virginia wide political office, and his seat in the US Senate is up for election in 2018. Traditionally West Virginia has been a "blue" pantsuit aligned state.
The special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions' appointment as Trump's attorney general appears to be turning into one of the bloodier fronts of the legacy GOP's struggle to endure Trump's cleansing of the party. Mitch McConnell and other leaders of the legacy Senate GOP are throwing their resources behind an effort to make appointed interim Alabama Senator Luther Strange the elected junior Senator from Alabama. (archived)
Running for the seat from the Great Again wing of the GOP are congressman Mo Brooks and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. The bloodiest lines of attack thus far in the campaign have been between Strange and Brooks. Strange indicts Brooks for taking time to come to believe in the Great again, a fault many shared early in the 2016 presidential campaign. Brooks on the other hand is bleeding Strange for being a consummate insider whose nose has already darkened several shades from its time spent in McConnell's anus.
While Strange and Brooks bleed each other, Justice Moore enjoys his status as a Dixie saint which was cemented with his decision from the bench that if Alabama wants Jesus and the ten commandments, by God he was going to give Alabama what it wants. The ACLU and Federal cocksuckers be damned. When Moore was removed from the Alabama Supreme Court through a SJW dominated show trial, he stood fast offering:
to acknowledge God cannot be a violation of the Canons of Ethics. Without God there can be no ethics.
The primary election is scheduled for August 15th. The leading candidate for the overt pantsuit nomination according to polls is an unknown who happens to be named Robert Kennedy.
Acccording to the Los Angeles Times, growers in California's marijuana industry are producing eight to twelve times more product than is necessary to satisfy in state demand for that dank skunky shit.1) At the present KKKalifornia law allows for the possession of one ounce of marijuana per person in the state at any given time, but marijuana producers who have sought KKKalifornia state licensing will be banned from exporting any marijuana come January 1st 2018.
This is a great boon to "outlaw" producers with the foresight to avoid KKKalifornia's regulated market in spite of tremendous social engineering pressures arrayed to tempt them to surrender to the criminal KKKalifornian regime. Who could have forseen that a plant nicknamed "weed" would grow like one?
