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.

>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

I've listened to it and... I don't think that's really what he's doing here. He's done that BEFORE, but here he was pretty obviously talking about underage boys and adult men. I agree that what he said isn't as fucked up as what people are making out, but it's still fucked up to say that shit is okay. However he's said much more fucked up shit and that... got him a book deal. It's kind of sad that THIS is where his fellow Brietbart employees drew the line--jokes about his own trauma--and not the actual terrible shit he says on purpose.

I understand that the dynamic between men and much younger guys is complicated, especially in eras when homosexuality had to be much deeper underground. Hell it can be hard to find a date now if you don't live in a major city; that's why sites like Grindr matter so much and why lesbians keep trying to get Her off the ground. It's literally impossible to figure out who is actually up for things when gay bars either don't exist or are no longer popular. But there's a big difference between "sometimes older guys date younger guys" and "it's fine for an adult man to fuck a thirteen year old."

You might find this take on it interesting.

CPAC also kicked out Richard Spencer (who had not been invited but bought a ticket) because "his views are repugnant and have absolutely nothing to do with what goes on here." Then one of the organizers gave a speech about how the "alt-right" is a sinister left-wing conspiracy to make them look like fascists and racists.

So much for the tolerant right!

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.
https://themoscowtimes.com/news/spy-scandal-threatens-russian-serbian-relations-55921
>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.

It could not be confirmed whether this involved the telephone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that has led to Flynn’s resignation, or additional communications.

Turns out Trump's lawyer has a problem with lying.
http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-lawyer-michael-cohen-russia-ukraine-peace-plan-2017-2

>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."

>A U.S. defense official told CNN the SSV-175 Viktor Leonov sailing in international waters is outfitted with a variety of high-tech spying equipment designed to intercept signals intelligence. Fox News first reported the ship's location.

>The official noted it is not the first time the ship has been deployed off the coast of the U.S. Similar patrols were carried out by the Leonov in 2014 and 2015 off Florida, and such missions were more common during the Cold War.

>Rep. Joe Courtney, D-Conn., a member of the House Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, said the ship was spotted about 30 miles from the Naval Submarine Base New London, located in Groton, Conn. It is the Navy's primary East Coast submarine base.

>Courtney said the move, coupled with the recent reported buzzing of U.S. Navy ships in the Red Sea by Russian planes, represents "unacceptable, aggressive action ... clearly testing the resolve of a new administration."

>"While I have total confidence in our Navy’s vigilant, responsible readiness," he said in a statement, "the White House needs to move past their seeming infatuation with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and treat him like the serious threat to global peace and security that he has been for the last five years," the Hartford Courant reports.

>Russia has secretly deployed a new cruise missile that American officials say violates a landmark arms control treaty, posing a major test for President Trump as his administration is facing a crisis over its ties to Moscow.

>The new Russian missile deployment also comes as the Trump administration is struggling to fill key policy positions at the State Department and the Pentagon — and to settle on a permanent replacement for Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser who resigned late Monday. Mr. Flynn stepped down after it was revealed that he had misled the vice president and other officials over conversations with Moscow’s ambassador to Washington.

>The ground-launched cruise missile at the center of American concerns is one that the Obama administration said in 2014 had been tested in violation of a 1987 treaty that bans American and Russian intermediate-range missiles based on land.

>The Obama administration had sought to persuade the Russians to correct the violation while the missile was still in the test phase. Instead, the Russians have moved ahead with the system, deploying a fully operational unit.

>But now Trump’s new FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, a former Verizon attorney, is pushing to repeal the net neutrality reform by rolling back that re-classification — and he’s getting help not only from a legion of telecom lobbyists, but from civil rights groups.

>In a little-noticed joint letter released last week, the NAACP, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, OCA (formerly known as the Organization for Chinese Americans), the National Urban League, and other civil rights organizations sharply criticized the “jurisdictional and classification problems that plagued the last FCC” — a reference to the legal mechanism used by the Obama administration to accomplish net neutrality.

>Instead of classifying broadband as a public utility, the letter states, open internet rules should be written by statute. What does that mean? It means the Republican-led Congress should take control of the process — the precise approach that is favored by industry.

>None of the civil rights groups that signed the joint letter responded to a request for comment.

>It’s not the first time civil rights group have engaged in lobbying debates seemingly unrelated to their core missions, but in favor of their corporate donors. At a time when OCA received major funding from Southwest Airlines, the group filed a regulatory letter on behalf of the airline in support of Southwest’s bid to open flights at Houston airport. The NAACP, after receiving financial backing from Wal-Mart, helped the retail chain during its contentious bid to open stores in New York City.

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20170206/07454836644/fcc-commissioner-thinks-ultra-fast-broadband-just-novelty.shtml

>One of the hallmarks of Tom Wheeler's FCC was a renewed focus on competition at higher broadband speeds. It's one of the reasons the last FCC bumped the standard definition of broadband from a measly 4 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up, to 25 Mbps down, and 3 Mbps up. That higher benchmark allowed the FCC to point out that roughly two-thirds of American homes lack access to more than one ISP at 25 Mbps or better, highlighting a growing cable monopoly over broadband as DSL providers like AT&T and Verizon shift their attention toward giant media acquisitions and away from residential broadband.

>Needless to say, large broadband providers (and the politicians paid to love them) quickly threw a hissy fit, insisting that nobody really needs that much bandwidth. This idea that you don't really need faster speeds falls in line with the industry's (and again, many politicians') ongoing refusal to acknowledge that the broadband market isn't all that competitive. After all, if you admit there's a problem, then you've admitted that somebody may just have to fix it.

>FCC Commissioner Mike O'Rielly is squarely on the side of industry on this subject, having voted down the FCC's higher 25 Mbps benchmark. Even though 25 Mbps is a far from radical benchmark, and 3 Mbps upstream remains a bit of a joke, O'Rielly's dissent (pdf), made his disdain for faster speeds (and the technologies that will use them) abundantly clear:

>"To justify setting the new benchmark at 25/3, as opposed to the current 4/1 or even 10/1 as several commenters suggested, the Report notes that 4K TV requires 25 Mbps. But 4K TV is still relatively new and is not expected to be widely adopted for years to come. While the statute directs us to look at “advanced” telecommunications capability, this stretches the concept to an untenable extreme. Some people, for example, believe, probably incorrectly, that we are on the path to interplanetary teleportation. Should we include the estimated bandwidth for that as well? "

Cost, what else. It takes money and investments to upgrade our internet especially with how large the entirety of the US is with some pretty damn remote areas not even counting Hawaii or Alaska.

Its a bit like the thing of a nationwide public transit system. I've seen regularly Eurocommie types asking why America doesn't have a public transit system everywhere, why you can't take a bus or train to anywhere like you can in pretty much all of Europe. People don't understand the sheer size of America, the gaps between some populated areas, the great empty spaces and everything that makes a universal public transit system hard.

Hard but not impossible. Again, cost. Its costs money to invest in train lines, bus lines, and shit like that. You have to build hundreds and thousands of miles of passenger grades train lines, you have to create the infrastructure and all the junk that is considerably easier for a densely populated country the size of an average state but not so easy for mostly empty American sized states and ones with bad terrain.

To do it we'd have to raise taxes and high craptons of new government workers or turn to the private sector which might (will) wind up costing even greater amounts of money. Taxes would have to raised and we might not be able to feed the F-35 and political pork programs.

If there is no political will to absorb the cost then shit ain't getting done.

Because federal standards for internet speeds would require the telco monopolies to actually invest in installing new infrastructure instead of just running everything as a turnkey operation until the infrastructure rots away and they get federal grants to replace it. The only places they're actually installing new infrastructure is in cities where Google is threatening to offer fiber service, because they know that any company that offers modern internet service will leach away their subscribers.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/01/27/russian-parliament-decrimiinalizes-domestic-violence/97129912/

>Russia's parliament voted 380-3 on Friday to decriminalize domestic violence in cases where it does not cause "substantial bodily harm" and does not occur more than once a year.

>The move, which eliminates criminal liability in such cases, makes a violation punishable by a fine of roughly $500, or a 15-day arrest, provided there is no repeat within 12 months.

>The bill now goes to the rubber-stamp upper chamber, where no opposition is expected. It then must be signed by President Vladimir Putin, who has signaled his support.

http://www.thelocal.dk/20170201/reported-rapes-in-denmark-double-in-two-years
>We are very pleased that we now have more accurate numbers on how many men and women have reported rapes. Previously there were many cases that were treated under the category of ‘investigation numbers’ that did not get included in the statistics of reported rapes
>The majority of the ‘missing' reports were hidden in police statistics by giving them investigation numbers that did not classify them as rape cases.

Statistic manipulation is a normal occurrence in modern countries because most of the people who read the news aren't educated enough to know the difference between registered crime and reported crime. Decriminalization of (previously) criminal activity always brings number of cases up because people become less concerned about consequences (they are charging their relatives with a criminal case) and more eager to resolve the conflict.

>According to Rossiskaya Gazeta, the Russian government’s official newspaper, between 12,000 and 14,000 women die every year in Russia as a result of domestic violence

So I take it the Russian government doesn't count domestic violence related deaths as murders? Because the country's murder rate is around 13,000 people a year.

It could just be a flawed translation, maybe there are 12,000 and 14,000 conviction cases in total.

The Independent is a MSM source, they don't care about accuracy, they only care about first to publish the most controversial stuff.

>So I take it
You may take it as you wish because the opinion of English newspapers is irrelevant. Moreover, source was not provided, so the information cannot be verified.

Classification of incidents widely varies from country to country, so an "accident" could have been simply translated as "casualty" and presented in most innocent manner. "Number of reports have doubled" simply means "number of casualties have doubled" and "law was relaxed" means "violence is allowed". It's just a series of small adjustments, isn't it? The source meant to say "the new law allows to increase transparency and effectiveness", and the newspaper reads "Putin terrorizes and kills thousands of innocent people with his new proposal". Duh.

Isn't that closer to 0.5% or am I bad at math?

I have here a history of the JSF program from 1993-1999 (written in 2000) where the logic behind the "One aircraft, three variants" plan is discussed. I won't bore you with the details but there's a figure that summarizes things. Its contents are the following.

OPTION A: 3 Aircraft
USMC STOVL (purchase qty 380)
USAF CTOL (purchase qty 1242)
USN CV, twin engine (qty 300)
COST: Highest
3 EMD and Production Programs
Maximum industry support
Lowest commonality
Optimized Requirements for each service.
REJECTED BY JAST Program Bottom Up Review (BUR): "Business as Usual" (it literally says this)

Option B: Two families of Aircraft

What evidence do you have for saying that document is still on DTIC (which is a pretty vanilla repository for defense documents) only through the efforts of disgruntled employees? The damn thing literally says "approved for public release, distribution unlimited".

If they had offered F-22 exports to select countries this could have been avoided.

Britain should have gone with Navalised Typhoons and done a JSF based on gen 4.5 tech.

Indian research determined that the Typhoon would have been "completely uncompetitive" for naval operations due to the added weight from the needed modifications.

Of course the RN could have just built real flatdecks in the first place and then this wouldn't have been a issue.

  LTG Hal Moore has passed away last night at age 94. He served his country with distinction and valor for over 32 years during the wars in Korea and Vietnam were he was immortalized as a Battalion Commander of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) during the week-long Battle of Ia Drang.

Encircled by enemy soldiers with no clear landing zone that would allow them to leave, Moore managed to persevere despite being significantly outnumbered by North Vietnamese Army (NVA) forces that would go on to defeat the 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry only two-and-a-half miles away the next day. Moore’s dictum that “there is always one more thing you can do to increase your odds of success” and the courage of his entire command are credited with this outcome. Blond haired Moore was known as “Yellow Hair” to his troops at the battle at Ia Drang, and as a tongue-in-cheek homage referencing the legendary General George Armstrong Custer, who commanded as a lieutenant colonel the same 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of the Little Bighorn just under a century before.

Most certainly. It's a huge fucking target in the sky and they would often crash even when not fired upon.

It takes a special kind of man to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, but it takes a fucking mad man to just sit around while taking fire & hoping that your pilot will find a suitable landing strip

But that's still not a combat jump. ;)
