With the young TMSR OS project beginning to take shape, quite a few "developer teams" and "communities" are finding themselves depreciated. From MUSL's legacy developers disqualifying themselves over hieroglyph fixations to the rEFInd developer's silent satisfaction leaving him out, an increasing amount of code is finding itself liberated from herd driven debasement.

Numerous cases concerning arms and their trafficking in the US are being decided in favor of defendants who don't roll over and plea due to the disconnect between a popular administrative convention and the actual text of the law (archived). It turns out that when the "weapon" being trafficked is an AR-15 lower receiver, the lower receiver itself doesn't qualify under the law as a "weapon" because too many of the features that the text of the law requires for it to be classes as a weapon are part of the upper receiver which is a completely different part on the AR-15.
Prosecutors and other USG bureaucrats have simply been pursuing cases through administrative convention, deciding the lower receiver itself would be the magic part they would treat as a weapon despite no single AR-15 part on its own qualifying as a weapon under the law. At present some members of the USG judiciary are already dismissing cases over prosecutor objections.
Remember kids, any plea agreement proposed by a USG prosecutor isn't ever any kind of deal.
Following a series of group attacks in Minneapolis targetting lone white men and carried out by groups of black men whose video footage has "gone viral", Minneapolis police are declining to classify the attacks as hate crimes because the victims were allegedly targeted for their incapacitation rather than their skin color (archived). Twenty arrests have been made and eighteen individuals aged 15 to 27 have been charged. Absent from mainstream discussion on these cases is the fact that if the doctrine advanced by the Minneapolis Police Department came to be accepted as a precedent by the courts the entire hate crime racket in the US would collapse.
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.
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.
Michelle Suárez, Uruguay's first trans-Senator has plead guilty to a variety of crimes relating to her legal practice including fraud and falsifying signatures of zher clients (archived). The communist former Frente Amplio Senator born in 1983 claims the titles of first trans-University graduate, first trans-lawyer, and first trans-holder of elected office in Uruguay. Zhe has been under house arrest since April 18, 2018 due to zher morbid obesity and diabetes making prison incarceration prohibitively expensive. Suárez's legal problems began shortly after zher October 2017 arrival in the Senate, a mere three months later Suárez resigned zher seat when the first forgery charges against her emerged. In the initial case zhe trans-signed a document reliquishing a father's parental and visitation rights forever. The objections of the father and the father's actual attorney lead to this ham's fall from the trough and the investigation of a number of Suárez's other frauds.
Per the plea agreement, Suárez faces another year of home detention followed by two years of probation during which zhe will be barred from public office and pursuing reinstatement of zher license to practice law.
FedEx has sued the US Department of Commerce and Madame Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross over the impossibility of complying with the full extent of USG export control regulations. In the filing FedEx swears that they have a sophisticated system for checking sender and recipient identities against the USG's restricted entity list, but that determining whether any particular item entrusted to them as a common carrier is export controlled presents an excessive burden such that effective checks would require them to discard any pretense of customer privacy while forcing them to violate other laws in the process.
FedEx further laments that in other contexts common carriers enjoy protection from liability with respect to the contents of the package they are conveying, but not in this case. Either FedEx implements a regime of intensive package inspection trying to comply with US export controls and in the process breaks numerous other laws in their global area of operations, or they perpetually sit exposed to liability if the USG catches something going through under their care in violation of US export controls. Thusly, FedEx seeks relief under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, because these burdens were placed upon them without due process. The full filing is below: Continue reading
The Pantsuitist social warfare training camp doing business as Oberlin College was slapped with an 11 million USD verdict after one of their exercises gravely damaged the business of a local bakery (archived). The drama started when three Oberlin reparations agents of color were detained, arrested, and plead guilty to theft from Gibson's Bakery which has been operating since 1885. In response to student protests, the activist institution ceased business relations with the bakery and actively engaged in an activist campaign declaring the bakery a racist business. Oberlin tried to justify their institutional actions against the bakery by proposing the doctrine that "first time offenders", meaning persons engaging in theft up to the occasion they are caught doing so, ought not be turned over to police for prosecution.
During the trial Oberlin retained a professional witness and attempted to assert the value of the business they destroyed was a mere 35,000 USD, less than the tutition for charged for a single semester at Oberlin. To their credit, Gibson's attorneys and accountans defended the intangible assets of the business including nearly a century and a half in operation while suggesting a very reasonable 5.8 million USD figure for the damages inflicted by Oberlin's attack projected over 30 years.
The Chinese government is weighing a measure that would enable courts in Hong Kong to extradite suspects to mainland China for trial (archived). This move would represent a small step towards greater integration between Cantonese speaking Hong Kong and the Mandarin speaking mainland which share a common national identity under different systems of government. USG affiliated outlets are presenting the measure as a "grave violation" of the agreement that transitioned colonial stewardship of the territory from British to Chinese hands though the decision to extradite or not would still be undertaken in the Hong Kong courts system.
The Anglophone outrage highlights the always interesting problem of enforcement. What fleet and shipyards can the Anglophones act out their rage? What sanctions can the deindustrialized Anglophone economies apply to the economy that appears to have won manufacturing?
