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.

Have you ever been so mad at a flamboyant racemixing gay British Jew that you burned down part of your university, trashed cars, and possibly murdered people in the street?

If you have, you might live in California.

The tl;dr is Milo Yiannopolis of Breitbart Tech was supposed to give his last speaking appearance at Berkley last night. "Anti-fascist" protestors turned up and started a massive riot.

>Started fires
>Looted a Starbucks
>Smashed windows and ATM machines
>Beat people with flagpoles, clubs, and baseball bats

One guy in a vehicle got attacked and had his windows smashed, so he floored it and ran over several rioters. The mob chased after him, lost him, and dragged a guy out of a different, but similar looking car and beat him unconcious. Then the "anti-fascists" got on the scene and beat his unconcious body with clubs and a ball bat. Nobody knows if the guy is alive or dead. Pic related.

Meanwhile pundits are egging this shit on and declaring war against anyone to the Right of Mao. Since they made the cops cancel Milo's speech, they consider this a victory and are pushing to emulate it.

>when you can't even define the alt right?

There's no strict definition of any of this. Can you come up with a strict definition of "conservative?"

Alt right is more about style than anything else. For example: there are alt right people who are cool with gays and alt right people who want the men repressed and the women forced to date them. They both count, the "alt"ness is more about rhetoric. Just as a libertarian and a guy who wants our government based on the Bible can both be conservative.

Welcome to politics! I agree that it sucks.

Milo's big mistake was that he went for the crazy fringe who thinks holocaust jokes are hilarious and gays should date straights anyway instead of the more mainstream conservatives. He decided to be a mascot for bigots rather than a more conventional pundit, not understanding that toadies get it just as bad eventually. The sad part is he was intelligent enough for the mainstream. He didn't need to go after the fringe at all.

Oh, and saying it's understandable to fuck thirteen year old boys. But again I think that was more falling in with people who'd rather perpetuate his trauma than urge him to get help. It's honestly sad that shit came out on the fucking Amazing Atheist's web show and not with a therapist. I legitimately hope this guy finds somebody to help rather than enable him. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back better and more adept in a few years.

Hey, Holocaust jokes are heilarious Anne Frankley so are most offensive jokes. There is humor in the dark shit.

Really though you are pretty much right about Milo's problem. Though to expand on it his problem was he liked jumping into any sort of multicar pileup in the political world. Gamergate, Ghostbusters, the Orlando shooting, and the whole election. It both helped and hurt him, it got plenty of supporters but plenty of detractors too that jump on him for anything.

Watching the video (atleast one version), it doesn't seem like he's advocating for pedophilia or the teenage version if you take him at his word that when he said "boy" he was using the term euphemistically to refer to a young man in a daddy/son gay relationship. In the Rogan video he points out that adults can think physically mature teens are attractive even when underage, that age is just a number and doesn't factor into your body and mind responding to an attractive person.

But assuming he actually wasn't advocating for pedophilia, the fact he's pissed off so many people makes it easy to twist his words and attack him especially with how hsitty the media is (see Pewdiepie or George Zimmerman for evidence of media's willingness to take things out of context or edit shit).

One thing I find heilarious about this is this kinda shows why protesting and advocating against Milo speaking was so damn stupid in the first place. If you give someone enough rope to hang themselves they are damn sure going to be knotting that noose. Milo in his own words hurt himself, through media manipulation or him being a kiddy diddler enabler, in a way that would be impossible if people shut him up like they wanted to.

Everyone, especially public figures, are their own worse enemy and will wind up fucking themselves over far more then any protest or riot or attacks of their free speech.

Why I say let the fuckers speak. Let Milo speak, let Trump tweet, let Spencer stay on his feet, let them tie their own knots.

Freed up by the Supreme Court’s ongoing reluctance to engage in depth with the Second Amendment, the Fourth Circuit has taken it upon itself to rewrite Heller en banc. In a 10–4 decision, issued yesterday afternoon, the court upheld Maryland’s ban on both “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines.” By so doing, it deprived the people of Maryland, the Carolinas, and the Virginias of the core protections to which the Constitution entitles them.

As Judge Traxler’s dissent pointedly establishes, the majority achieved this transformation by contriving “a heretofore unknown ‘test,’ which is whether the firearm in question is ‘most useful in military service.’” In effect, this “test” is designed to permit judges to determine that any weapon they might dislike is unprotected by the Second Amendment and can therefore be prohibited with impunity. Forget that Heller contains its own explicit tests. Forget the “common use” standard. Forget “dangerous and unusual.” There’s a new kid in town, and he’s coming for your rifles.

Miller case

In 1938, the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas ruled the statute unconstitutional in United States v. Miller. The defendant Miller had been arrested for possession of an unregistered short double-barreled shotgun, and for "unlawfully...transporting [it] in interstate commerce from Claremore, Oklahoma to Siloam Springs, Arkansas" which perfected the crime.[42] The government's argument was that the short barreled shotgun was not a military-type weapon and thus not a "militia" weapon protected by the Second Amendment, from federal infringement. The District Court agreed with Miller's argument that the shotgun was legal under the Second Amendment.

The District Court ruling was overturned on a direct appeal to the United States Supreme Court (see United States v. Miller). No brief was filed on behalf of the defendants, and the defendants themselves did not appear before the Supreme Court. Miller himself had been murdered one month prior to the Supreme Court's decision. No evidence that such a firearm was "ordinary military equipment" had been presented at the trial court (apparently because the case had been thrown out—at the defendants' request—before evidence could be presented), although two Supreme Court justices at the time had been United States Army officers during World War I and may have had personal knowledge of the use of such weapons in combat. The Supreme Court indicated it could not take judicial notice of such a contention.

The Supreme Court reversed the District Court and held that the NFA provision (criminalizing possession of certain firearms) was not violative of the Second Amendment's restriction and therefore was not unconstitutional.

Subsequent rulings have been allowed to stand, indicating that short-barreled shotguns are generally recognized as ordinary military equipment if briefs are filed (e.g., see: Cases v. United States),[43] describing use of short-barreled shotguns in specialized military units.

WASHINGTON — Working from an office suite behind a Burger King in southern Virginia, operatives used a web of shadowy cigarette sales to funnel tens of millions of dollars into a secret bank account. They weren’t known smugglers, but rather agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Hey so remember how the Serbian intelligence agency foiling a terrorist attack in Montenegro and the subsequent find of a cache of weapons outside the Serbian prime minister's house before they deported a bunch of Russian spies and one of Putin's toadies had to fly to Serbia and apologize was just fake Serbian news according to 9723b1?

http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/montenegro-points-finger-at-russia-for-failed-plot-to-kill-prime-minister-and-stop-country-from-joining-nato
>A Montenegrin special prosecutor says “Russian state bodies” were linked to a thwarted assassination plot to kill the Balkan nation’s prime minister and derail its accession to NATO.

>The official investigating the election-day plot made the public accusation a day after The Sunday Telegraph reported allegations from senior Whitehall figures that Russia had backed the conspiracy.

>The Kremlin immediately dismissed claims it conspired to use Serbian nationalists to overthrow the Montenegrin government as “absurd” and unsubstantiated.

>Prosecutor Milivoje Katnic told local television: “So far, we have had evidence that Russian nationalist structures were behind [the plot], but now also that Russian state bodies were involved at a certain level.”

>He said: “The organs of the Russian state must investigate which bodies are involved and open a criminal trial over these acts.”

>The prosecutor alleged the conspiracy – which would have seen a group disguised as police officers attack parliament on Oct. 16 and kill Milo Djukanovic – had been led by a member of Russian military intelligence.

It happened back in October and I think we had a thread about it. tl;dr is that the Serbians caught wind of a plot by some Serbian nationalists and Russian backers to try and coup the Montenegrin government, tipped off their neighbors and then deported some Russian intelligence agents involved with it.

>Commenting as to why Serbia's security forces went public with the information about the attempted coup, Serbian Prime Minister Alexander Vucic said: "Those who suppose Serbia would be involved in any kind of criminal activity are deeply mistaken."

Just a few days later, a security sweep found a cache of weapons near the prime minister's home in a position that would be good for a assassination.

IN A.D. 2017
WAR WAS BEGINNING

>breithart not covering this story for some mysterious reason, probably because they haven't read about it on CNN yet

Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin died Monday in New York, Russian officials said. His death was also announced inside the UN Trusteeship Council Chamber.

He died one day before his 65th birthday.

Churkin was at the Russian embassy on East 67th Street on Monday when he experienced a “cardiac condition,” The New York Post reported. He was rushed to New York Presbyterian Hospital at around 9:30 a.m. unconscious and in need of CPR.

Churkin had been Russia's envoy at the United Nations since 2006 and was considered Moscow's great champion at the U.N. He had a reputation for an acute wit and sharp repartee, especially with his American and Western counterparts. He was currently the longest-serving member of the Security Council, the U.N.'s most powerful body.

Among many other issues, he had recently made Russia's views heard on the conflict in close ally Syria, sparring with diplomats from the U.S. and other Western countries over whether to impose sanctions or take action to end the conflict in Syria.

Trump signs order pulling U.S. from TPP: President Trump signed an executive order on Monday announcing his plan to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.

The order fulfills Trump’s campaign promise to abandon the Pacific Rim trade pact early in his administration.

“We've been talking about this for a long time,” Trump said after signing the order in the Oval Office, adding that leaving the 12-nation pact is a “great thing for the American worker.” http://bit.ly/2kaw6bN.



White House: Trump has left his businesses: The White House said Monday that President Trump has left his business empire, but the documentation has not been made public.

"He has resigned from the company, as he said he would, before he took office," press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his first official press briefing.

“Don and Eric are fully in charge of the company," he added, referring to the president's two adult sons.

The sources said the intercepted communications are not just limited to telephone calls: The foreign agency is also gathering electronic and human source information on Trump’s overseas business partners, at least some of whom the intelligence services now consider to be agents of their respective governments. These operations are being conducted out of concerns that Russia is seeking to manipulate its relationships with Trump administration officials as part of a long-term plan to destabilize the NATO alliance.

Turns out Trump's lawyer has a problem with lying.

>President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was at the center of a bombshell New York Times report published Sunday that said he hand-delivered a "peace plan for Russia and Ukraine" to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign.

>The plan — which The Times said was pushed by Cohen, businessman Felix Sater, and Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii Artemenko — involved lifting sanctions on Russia in return for Moscow withdrawing its support for pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine, according to the report. It would also allow Russia to maintain control over Crimea, which it annexed in 2014.

>Hours after the Times story was published, however, Cohen told The Washington Post that he hadn't delivered the peace plan to Flynn nor discussed it with anyone in the White House.

>In an interview with The Post, Cohen corroborated The Times' reporting that he had met with Sater and Artemenko in a hotel lobby on Park Avenue in Manhattan in late January to discuss the proposal. He said that the meeting lasted less than 15 minutes and that he left with the plan in hand.

>However, he "emphatically" denied "discussing this topic or delivering any documents to the White House and/or General Flynn," adding that he told Artemenko that he could "send the proposal to Flynn by writing him at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.," The Post reported.

>Cohen shifted his story again on Monday, telling Business Insider in a series of text messages that he denies "even knowing what the plan is." But he said in a later message that he met with Artemenko in New York for "under 10 minutes" to discuss a proposal that Artemenko said "was acknowledged by Russian authorities that would create world peace."
