Twenty-nine are dead after two mass shooting events in the US. Twenty deaths ocurred in a Texas Walmart Race War before the shooter was captured alive by USG forces. The other nine, shooter inclusive, died during a brother-sister domestic dispute at an Ohio "western" themed bar. Post shooting media panic is being directed at 8chan and the shooters' low melanin levels. No mainstream media time is being spent on actual social factors driving young men to join a culture war in the role of partisans fighting manalone actions. As has become SOP, both shooters' social media profiles have been scrubbed by the platform operators.
GoDaddy, the name registrar and hosting company once famous for the stotting behavior displayed in the company's ad buys, is beginning to have trouble drawing sufficient revenue to cover the firm's operating expenses (archived).
A lawsuit filed by the Pantsuitist US DNC against numerous parties including the Russian Federation, democratically elected US President Donald Trump, and others has been dimissed (archived). Clinton appointed District Judge John Koeltl found the Russian Federation's earlier declaration of sovereign immunity compelling though he declared:
The primary wrongdoer in this alleged criminal enterprise is undoubtably the Russian Federation, the first named defendant in the case and the entity that surreptitiously and illegally hacked into the DNC’s computers and thereafter disseminated the results of its theft
As Koeltl accepted the DNC's own political talking points about this particualr hack, one which saw their emails spread all over, everyone later spreading the emails was therefore indemnified for engaging in protected journalistic activity. This case's end comes as a case involving the embattled Pantsuit's own supernode Jeffery Epstein is in the early stages of its own prosecution after stalling for years due to Epstein's protection as an "intelligence" asset.
Thirty-three year old Seattle area woman Paige Adele Thompson was captured by USG forces during a paramilitary raid involving 10 USG militants armed with automatic weapons and wearing camoflage (archived). Surveillance camera footage from the single story house Paige occupied with her roommates has been shared with local media outlets.
The USG's publicly disclosed evidence in the case consists of the same VPN having been used to take Capital One's data as was used to log in to her Gitlab account. From this it follows the VPN service, probably advertising how incredibly "private" its service is happily playing State's witness.
The Office of NATO's "Resolute Support" mission today announced the deaths of two members of the US Military in Afghanistan (archived). Details of circumstances surrounding the deaths beyond these being numbers 10 and 11 on the year have not been released. Despite the US war in Afghanistan approaching its 19th birthday and Osama bin Laden having been killed more than 8 years ago on May 2nd, 2011, the USG shows no sign suggesting an end to its bleeding of lives and treasure into this particular hole. This war has also survived the loss of the Taliban's Mullah Omar, with the late Mullah living out his last days a mere 3 mile walk from a US military outpost.
A state of emergency has been declared in Louisiana as numerous municipal governments are being struck by crippling ransomware infections (archived). Local government organs have found themselves being stuck since the ransomware phenomenon was in its infancy, but it appears ransomware artists are increasingly favoring local governments as targets due to the fact they that they pay. More often than not they pay because they can't imagine not paying, and for as long as it lasts an insurance policy will reimburse them.
Failures to pay tend to be limited to openly dysfunctional municipal governments like Detroit and Baltimore. Suburbs and other municipalities that desperately want to put on their appearance of functioning well despite their obvious failures in technological hygiene. This avenue of capital flow out of the fiat system is likely to continue intensifying until the fiat side system enabling it breaks.
Following aggressive hounding effort by the old women's pulpit lobby, retailer Circle K retracted a romantic promotion they had advertised to honor the Hallmark holiday 'Secretary Day' (archived). The promotion offered an "executive combo" including a bottle of wine, chocolate, and packet of condoms for 199 pesos Mexicanos to celebrate secretaries "the proper way."
IBM, the original USG "Big Tech" behemoth, is making a lobbying push to end Section 230 of the US "Communications Decency Act" which shields "platforms"1 from liability concerns over the content they host as long as "users" of the platform supply the content (archived). This blanket shielding device is a rarity in US law, which normally makes the exact opposite cut. The dry hags at IBM propose a completely new "reasonable care" standard outlined in some 2017 "academic" paper replace Section 230 in an explosion of added complexity.
While IBM doesn't operate any major platforms of the sort which would be affected by changes to Section 230 and many of its supposed competitors do, the firm's activity in recent years has consisted mostly of shedding business units to focus on satisfying niche interests specific to the USG. These niches consist of an assortment of kinks, collected artifacts demanding curation, and rituals which grow like fungus in the cracks generated by USG complexity.
A term that is applied mostly to newer, trendier USG "Big Tech" behemoths ↩
As the Empire's relevance in the world continued to slide, the very inconvenient happenings are piling up:
- Turkey, bearer of the NATO alliance's second largest military,1 has begun taking delivery of S-400 air defense hardware from Russia in defiance of the USG empire's wishes. The US had been reluctant to sell NATO ally Turkey the inferior US air defense missile systems until Turkey had already made the deal with Russia, and when the belated offer to sell came from the USG, the price tag was several times higher than the superior Russian option.
- Democratically Elected US President Donald Trump declared his dislike for Bitcoin and desire that the USG move to regulate Bitcoin far too late for it to even try.
- The recent arrest of Pantsuit Supernode Jeffery Epstein appears positioned to bring all sorts of ugly inside the US Demoocracy and its party into view. One of the larger carbuncles consists of the tamper put on earlier Epstein prosecutions due to his ownership by an "intelligence" agency. Attempting to preempt the mess, the Pantuitist media cucks are underweighting inconvenient portions of Epstein's WoT in their coverage while party legislators call for probes into their opposition's funders before their own supernode's network gets mapped (archived).
- The "panic over energy expenditure for the purpose of socialist industrial capture" lobby has yet to produce a response to address bold scientists declaring clouds exist.
As the slow US withdrawal of troops from Syria continues to take shape, Germany has defied US orders to deploy the Wehrmacht to Syria and continue the ambiguous mission undertaken by US meddlers (archived). In the early years of the Hussein Bahamas administration insisted there would be no US ground troops in Syria, but after his re-election the ongoing accumulation of US materiel and personnel changed the dialogue to "Of course there are US troops in Syria" without any dialogue on whether there should be. Democratically elected US president Donald Trump has tried several times to withdraw the US from Syria, but folded against pressure from his subordinates and European allies including the French Despot Macron. They all insist "regime change" in Syria is still a viable and worthy purpose to pursue despite democratically elected Syrian President Assad's hold on power appearing firmer than ever.
