https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/11/15/murder-charges-filed-against-navy-marine-special-operators-in-incident-that-killed-green-beret-in-africa/

Two Navy SEALs and two Marine Raiders will face murder charges in the June 2017 death of an Army Special Forces staff sergeant in Mali.

The four personnel face UCMJ charges that include felony murder, involuntary manslaughter, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, hazing and burglary in the strangulation death of Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar, according to a release from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic public affairs.

An Article 32 preliminary hearing for all four accused is scheduled for Dec. 10. None of those charged were named in the release.

Redacted charge sheet information reveals previously undisclosed details about the alleged incident.

Whereas previous accounts only noted that the two SEALs had assaulted Melgar, charge sheets indicate that the two Marine Raiders, identified only as a staff sergeant and a gunnery sergeant, were allegedly involved in the direct assault as well.

All four individuals are being accused of driving to the Marines' quarters to get duct tape, driving to the quarters shared by Melgar and the SEALs, then breaking down Melgar’s locked door, restraining him and binding him with duct tape and strangling him by using a chokehold.

Each has been charged with conspiracy for allegedly sharing information with each other about what they told investigators, omitting information such as the use of duct tape and the Marines’ presence in the room, and disposing of alcohol kept in the quarters.

There's speculation. Cliques driving users away, people losing interest during the election run-up shitstorm, the oldfags linking up on other social media and abandoning the place to wither. Or all of the above. When you don't care about a community, people don't tend to stick around.

I grew up in Fairfax County VA, just outside of DC and I knew all the same people as those two did. Whatever was between them was chad & stacy shit, they both deserve to be up against the wall on the day of the revolution. Even worse than them were the Langley High School people. Langley is the fanciest public school in the nation, coincidentally in the same locale that senators live in. Great Falls isn't bad either but its a 15 minute further commute to DC. When Dan Quayle was VP his son was a Langley boy. Some of the private school kids were actually cool, but only because some of them got into private school when they got kicked out of public school and their parents had no other choice. Those few Judd Nelson/John Bender types (I know it seems implausible that such a type would exist in the nation's wealthiest suburb, but I witnessed it myself, I may have even smoked pot with some of them) were never in the same circle as the Chad & Stacy kegger crowd. Chad Kavaknickerbocker ended his life as a rich and famous successful legal figure because he was raised as rich kid with an enormous sense of entitlement and Indelible Stacy Ford ended her life as a rich and famous successful legal figure because she was raised as rich kid with an enormous sense of entitlement. I still live in that part of Virginia, not too far from CIA HQ. Somehow I didn't get to be raised as rich kid with an enormous sense of entitlement and that kind of pisses me off, I'm not famous or successful at all and I'm only rich mainly because of massive inherited wealth. I couldn't afford this zip code before my parents died, but now I can afford to raise my kids as rich entitled spoiled little brats and send them to Ivy league shitheadfactories. One day I will command the universe, I'm making all four of my kids grow up to be president and them imma make them build me space ships (I didn't inherit private spacecraft money, only 7 figures + 2 houses) and I'm going to be the first guy on Mars as an old man and once established there I'm gonna nuke Earth and have the universe all to myself.

The US is an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state.

Those who warned about black helicopters and jack-booted thugs twenty years ago were called nutjobs.

Ten or fifteen years ago, patriotic and thinking Americans really started to worry about the direction of the USA.

Today most Americans know something is wrong, but they either don't know what or don't care.

The few Americans who are awake are increasingly becoming more pessimistic as the US obviously declines. The situation in USA looks hopeless.

Everyday the elites make more laws, the debt rises, wars are conducted, and Americans become more immoral.

Courts won't rule against unconstitutional laws, politicians don't repeal laws, the Gestapo has become more brazen, no one cares about government spending, wars are not being ended, and Americans are not flocking to churches and embracing morality.

Trump is either part of the establishment, naive, or being drugged or threatened to build the police state, increase the debt, and keep the wars going.

Thousands of people cheered a flypast honouring 10 airmen who died when their plane crashed in a park 75 years ago.

The US bomber came down in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield on 22 February 1944, killing everyone on board.

A campaign for a flypast started after a chance meeting between BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker and Tony Foulds, who tends a park memorial.

A tearful Mr Foulds was given a rousing round of applause as the planes flew over. He said: "This is unbelievable."

Relatives of the aircrew and thousands of people from across Britain paid their respects as the planes roared over the memorial at about 08:45 GMT.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Mr Foulds told the crowds: "Thank you very much for coming, it's lovely to see you."

Mr Foulds also met the families of some of the airmen who lost their lives in the crash 75 years ago and said they were "lovely, lovely people".

He added: "I never thought I would ever meet any of the families of this pilot and crew."

Sup ya'll

Just wanted to let you all know, Middle East hasn't been this interesting since the 80s. Let's see what we got...

Lebanon and Iraq finally fed up with IR meddling on some interesting level and by that I mean even Ayatollah Sistani a very powerful spiritual leader with considerable political power speaks out about outside meddling and yeah... part of it was aimed at Iran, Moghtada Sadr speaks out against Hashd Al-Shabi the armed shi'a group that falls under the influence of Iran and doesn't really answer to Iraqi government. One of the earliest chairmen of Hezbollah in Lebanon points finger at Iran regarding their perpetual never ending instability.

And all that? it's just icing on the cake.

Let's see, remember 2008 post election Iranian protest? or 1998 Student protests? well both of them were more about social and political issues.

Well... in 2016 we had another wave of protest but something about it was entirely different. It was far less about political and social issues rather a quick bump in inflation and once again the purchasing power of the bulk of the population dropping and by drop I mean to a fraction of what it once was... for the 4th time in just my lifetime(I'll talk about that problem later). The 2016 thing, didn't take long but had weird atmospher about it in a sense that the usual information blackout wasn't there as much as it used to in fact ever since 2016 there were continous series of smaller protest to a point where it felt almost the norm. The issues included shady privatized deal for companies having led to massive backpayment issues for labourers especially in a few towns where they've pretty much been constantly protesting peacefully for over a year. The other issue, few years back there was a surge of less regulated private 'banks' of sort some working without central bank permits while others collapsed even though they had central bank seal of approval and a lot of people lost a lotta money, mostly the kinda middle class people who laid their life savings in there oh and there were a few high profile questionable projects that collapsed mostly because they seemed like ponzi schemes and so there a lot of small protests about all of those.

Oh and geopolitical the region went to a whole other level of 70s wild west. which deserves it's own discussiong but we'll get back to that too.

Fast forward to 2019 and something changed, after the worst hyperinflation in my life time where it almost pushed the entire middle class below poverty line, even by our own central bank standards life was continuing to go on... but then just when people were coming to terms with the new normal someone decided to raise the gas prices and in a whole new innovative way where pretty much NOTHING, not a single thing about it was neither done nor went right, everything that

Law hasn't been in place a month, the ink isn't even dry yet and already people's rights are being abused. Want to own a gun to protect yourself when there are a lot of people who might be really, really angry at you? Prove to the court that you're mentally fit first. Can't afford a friendly doctor cause you're an orphan? Too bad, lol.
Good luck catching some zzzzz if you ever get out on bail, kid.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/379422-police-petition-to-stop-accused-florida-shooters-brother-from

Police in Florida are using a new state law to try and stop the younger brother of the accused shooter at a Parkland, Fla. high school from owning a gun.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said that it has petitioned the courts for a risk protection order that would stop Zachary Cruz from owning a gun, under a new law passed earlier this month, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

The law, which was passed to try and prevent mass shootings like that in Parkland, gives law enforcement the ability to ask a judge to remove guns from a person’s home or stop them from buying a firearm until that individual can show a court that they’re mentally fit.

Cruz’s brother, Nikolas Cruz, has been indicted on murder charges in last month’s mass shooting in Parkland that left 17 people dead, and could face the death penalty.

Zachary Cruz, 18, was arrested on Monday for trespassing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the shooting took place.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/18/politics/bump-stocks-ban/index.html
The Trump administration rolled out a new federal regulation Tuesday officially banning bump-fire stocks.
Those who possess the devices, which make it easier to fire rounds from a semi-automatic weapon by harnessing the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger faster, will have 90 days to turn in or otherwise destroy them from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register -- likely this Friday -- according to senior DOJ officials.
Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people.
Officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had previously concluded bump stocks were merely a gun accessory or firearm part, not subject to federal regulation, but President Donald Trump called on the Justice Department to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy.

Justice Department officials told CNN Tuesday they took a "fresh look" at the case law, technology, and the devices and their functionality "in light of modern developments."
The rule concludes that bump-fire stocks, "slide-fire" devices, and devices with certain similar characteristics all fall within the prohibition on machine guns by allowing a "shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger," and therefore, they are illegal under federal law.
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker signed the new rule Tuesday morning, according to the officials -- a notable move given the string of legal challenges surrounding the constitutionality of his appointment. The officials said they stood ready to defend against any challenges to the rule, and pointed to the fact that the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department signed off on it.

As for how many gun owners will be affected by the new rule, officials explained it was difficult to provide precise figures, saying bump stocks "aren't widespread, but they are not uncommon."

Trump said in October he told the National Rifle Association that "bump stocks are gone," but how the group responds to the final rule remains to be seen. A spokesperson for the NRA said in October 2017 that the ATF "should review bump-fire stocks to ensure they comply with federal law," but made clear it opposed the broader gun-control legislation raised by some in Congress.
