The highly anticipated murder trial of a Key West woman charged with intentionally running over and killing a pedestrian with her Mercedes Benz and then aiming the vehicle at a bicyclist will likely take place in the Southernmost City, against the wishes of her defense attorneys.

April Thomason, 46, killed Stephanie Collins, 49, who was walking with her friend on the sidewalk along South Roosevelt Boulevard around 6 p.m. Sept. 16, 2015. The friend jumped out of the way, but Collins didn't move in time before Thomason's car jumped the sidewalk and mowed her down, according to a Key West police arrest report.

We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/

--

If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:

http://www.mediacollege.com/journalism/news/newsworthy.html

All other rules remain in effect until further notice.
>> No. 101062 ID: 1fb1a6
Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.

Wow.

Americans are such pussified snowflakes now that they want the Gestapo to hold their hand when they pee-pee.

Americans used to support freedom, but they have now morphed into Nazis and Communists. Americans will easily go to the gulags because Fascists think the police state only affects Commies and Communists believe tyranny targets Nazis.

Conservatives tend to support small government, be moral, go to church, be responsible, be independent, and oppose killing unborn children. Conservatives generally dislike alcohol, drugs, premarital sex, and minorities.

Liberals often favor science and Socialism and are impulsive. Leftists are more likely to support welfare, drinking, drug use, homosexuality, and open borders.

Since Americans tolerate debt, wars, nanny state laws, Obamacare, food stamps, regulations, offshoring, homosexuality, increasing taxes, illegal immigrants, security cameras, license plate readers, checkpoints, redlight cameras, speed cameras, FBI facial and voice recognition, curfews, gun bans, searches without warrants, mandatory minimums, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, private prison quotas, no knock raids, take down notices, no fly lists, terror watch lists, Constitution free zones, stop and frisk, 3 strikes laws, kill switches, National Security Letters, kill lists, FBAR, FATCA, Operation Chokepoint, civil forfeiture, CIA torture, NDAA indefinite detention, secret FISA courts, FEMA camps, laws requiring passports for domestic travel, IRS laws denying passports for tax debts, gun and ammo stockpiles, laws outlawing protesting, police militarization, NSA wiretapping, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, private prisons, FOSTA, TSA groping, and Jade Helm then what is to stop the elites from sending the 99% to the concentration camps?

The US has crossed every line.

Life has become unbearable. Who wants to live in a prison? Hard work is punished with taxes and regulations, jobs have been offshored, illegal immigrants are flooding the country, and laziness is rewarded with welfare.

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of next month, preparing the way for the most significant change in the court's makeup in half a century.

The vacancy will allow President Donald Trump to make the U.S. Supreme court a solidly conservative body for years, if not generations, to come — a towering legacy of his time in office.

The CRA was a moral choice, but flatly unconstitutional on its face. We need the same thing, but done properly as an amendment.

>President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

>The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

>The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

>“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

H. R. Mcmaster out as National Security Advisor, set to be replaced by John Bolton.

>Career politician
>Warhawk with obvious hegemonistic tendencies
>Served as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security affairs under Bush and Powell leading up to the invasion of Iraq and beyond
>Strongly pro-Israel and anti-Palestine
>Supports pre-emptive war against Iran and North Korea

After reading the wikipedia article on him and Mehdi Hassan's article on him I have come to the conclusion that this guy is nuts, or a legit psychopath, or at very least has some serious mental problems.

I'm not really a fan of Mehdi Hassan but he hit the nail on the head here.

>Now, therefore, is the time to panic; now is the moment to sound the alarm. The bullies have come together. The “ideological” and “brutal” Bolton is about to be given a desk a few feet away from the Oval Office. As national security adviser, he’ll be the first one in the room and the last one out. “Trump is utterly ignorant of the world, prone to making impulsive decisions, and tends to defer to the most forceful voice in the room, especially when it conveys information with confident bluster,” observed Damon Linker in the The Week. “That would give Bolton enormous power to shape policy — which means the power to get the United States to launch big new wars as well as expand the numerous ones we’re already waging across wide swaths of the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia.”

>“I think that this is actually now a perfect time for President Trump to pivot to make it clear that he’s not going to permit additional [Russian] meddling, or meddling by any other foreign government in our election process,” Bolton said. “Whether you think [the Russians] were trying to collude with the Trump campaign or trying to collude with the Clinton campaign, their interference is unacceptable. It’s really an attack on the American Constitution.”

>President Donald Trump twice gave James Comey an alibi for why a salacious report about the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow couldn’t be true: He never even spent the night in Russia during that trip, Trump told the former FBI director, according to Comey’s memos about the conversations.

>Yet the broad timeline of Trump’s stay, stretching from Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, through the following Sunday morning, has been widely reported. And it’s substantiated by social media posts that show he slept in Moscow the night before the Miss Universe contest.

>Now, flight records obtained by Bloomberg provide fresh details. Combined with existing accounts and Trump’s own social-media posts, they capture two days that, nearly five years later, loom large in the controversy engulfing the White House and at the heart of the Comey memos, which the Justice Department turned over last week to Congress.

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/07/10/politics/donald-trump-nato-summit-2018/index.html

Brussels (CNN) President Donald Trump came out brawling in his first public comments here at the outset of NATO's annual summit, accusing a close US ally of being "a captive of Russia," calling members of the alliance "delinquent" in their defense spending and insisting they increase it "immediately."

Trump's provocative comments on Wednesday morning -- particularly those aimed at Germany -- set the tone for the first day of NATO's annual summit, amplifying the sense of unease among the United States' closest European allies and giving Trump a chance to once again shine a spotlight on uneven burden-sharing among the alliance's members.

The invectives detracted from the summit's goal of projecting unity in the face of Russian aggression, even as Trump and NATO leaders jointly agreed to bolster their defense and deterrence capabilities to head off Russian threats. Instead, Trump fueled a narrative of discord within the alliance, just days before he heads to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

>Comcast has been telling Xfinity Mobile customers about the changes in an email titled, "Update on cellular video resolution and personal hotspots." One Comcast customer forwarded the email to Ars, and there's also a Reddit thread discussing the email. All Xfinity Mobile customers are receiving this email, Comcast confirmed to Ars.

"To help you conserve data, we've established 480p as the standard resolution for streaming video through cellular data," Comcast told customers. For now, customers can contact Comcast for an "upgrade" to 720p video "on an interim basis at no charge."

>But after the interim period is over, getting HD-quality video will cost extra. "Later this year, 720p video over cellular data will be available as a fee-based option with your service," Comcast told customers. Comcast hasn't mentioned any plans to make 1080p or any resolution higher than 720p available over cellular, and there's no word from Comcast yet on what enabling 720p video will cost. Comcast previously imposed no speed limits on video streaming on the Xfinity Mobile service.

[...]

>"If you have the Unlimited data option, your speeds on any device connected to a personal hotspot will not exceed 600kbps," Comcast told customers. Xfinity Mobile users can get 4G hotspot speeds by switching to Comcast's "By the Gig" pricing.

>By the Gig customers pay $12 for each gigabyte of usage. The unlimited plan costs $45 a line each month, and it's unlimited in the sense that there are no overage fees for using too much data. But the unlimited plan only provides 20GB of full-speed data each month—after 20GB, the plan is limited to 1.5Mbps downstream and 750kbps upstream at all times. This limitation was already in place when Comcast started offering mobile service last year.

$8.63bn wasted on Russian "stealth fighter" fraud scheme
http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/8-63-billion-advanced-fighter-aircraft-project-with-russia-put-on-ice-118042000029_1.html

>The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried. Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.

>Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter. They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

>New Delhi and Moscow have discussed the FGFA since 2007, when they agreed that Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) would partner Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau (Sukhoi) in developing and manufacturing the fighter. In 2010, Sukhoi flew the fighter, called Perspektivny Aviatsionny Kompleks Frontovoy Aviatsii, or “Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation” (PAK-FA). Seven prototypes are currently in flight-testing.

>Russia said the PAK-FA met its needs, but the India Air Force (IAF) wanted a better fighter. So HAL and Sukhoi negotiated an $8.63-billion deal to improve the PAK-FA with the IAF’s requirements of stealth (near-invisibility to radar), super-cruise (supersonic cruising speed), networking (real-time digital links with other battlefield systems) and airborne radar with world-beating range. In all, the IAF demanded some 50 improvements to the PAK-FA, including 360-degree radar and more powerful engines.

>Defence ministry sources who played a direct role in negotiations with Russia say much of this money was earmarked for Indian production facilities for manufacturing 127 FGFAs, and for India’s work share in developing advanced avionics for the fighter. It also included the cost of four PAK-FA prototypes for IAF test pilots to fly.

>Now, the IAF has backed away from the FGFA because it argues the PAK-FA — which Sukhoi has been test-flying since January 2010 — is not stealthy enough for a fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates have been charged in a 12-count indictment with conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and making false statements.

It marked the first criminal allegations to come from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Gates did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort. Manafort was spotted walking into the FBI’s Washington Field Office Monday morning.

>Prince, America’s most famous private military contractor, acknowledged last week that he “cooperated” with Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election after falling under scrutiny amid questions about an alleged effort to establish a backchannel between the Trump administration and the Kremlin, something Prince has vehemently denied.

>ABC News has since learned that Mueller is also reviewing Prince’s communications. In response to questions from ABC News, a spokesperson for Prince released a statement noting that Prince has provided Mueller with “total access to his phone and computer.”

>“As Mr. Prince told the Daily Beast he has spoken voluntarily with Congress and also cooperated completely with the Special Counsel’s investigation, including by providing them total access to his phones and computer,” the spokesperson said. “Mr. Prince has a lot of opinions about the various investigations, but there is no question that they are important and serious, and so Mr. Prince will keep his opinions to himself for now and to let the investigators do their work. All we will add is that much of the reporting and speculation about Mr. Prince in the media is inaccurate, and we are confident that when the investigators have finished their work, we will be able to put these distractions to the side.”
