>House Democrats and other immigration reformers are calling on President Obama to go big when it comes to administrative changes in deportation policy.

>For months, liberal reform advocates on and off Capitol Hill have urged Obama to tap his executive powers to stop deporting certain qualified groups of undocumented immigrants while waiting to see if House Republicans would take up reform legislation this year.

>But in the wake of Obama's Monday Rose Garden speech vowing unilateral action, some reformers want the president to go far beyond a limited expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to essentially legalize the millions of undocumented immigrants who would be eligible for work permits under the bill passed by the Senate last summer.

>“The administration has unquestionable legal authority to provide all those who would qualify for citizenship under the bipartisan Senate Bill affirmative status with work authorization while making immigration enforcement more just,” Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO said Tuesday in a statement. "The administration should act boldly and without further delay.”


>A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

>She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

>“Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”

This is pretty shitty. The little girl shouldn't have to deal with having killed a man. Video below shows everything to the last second as the recoil just takes the firearm.

>Somewhere in southern Russia, a convoy of 280 white-painted trucks snaked its way Tuesday toward the Ukrainian border.

>Russia has acknowledged sending the convoy. In a conversation Monday with the President of the European Commission, Putin said his country was working with the International Committee of the Red Cross to deliver aid to civilians suffering as a result of savage fighting there.

>Except the Red Cross says it doesn't know what Putin is talking about.ICRC spokesman Andrew Loersch said the agency doesn't have any agreement with Russia on such a convoy. And ICRC European operations chief Laurent Corbaz said Tuesday in Geneva that the agency hasn't gotten much clarity from Moscow about its purported role in the operation, including how the aid would be handed over and security guarantees for Red Cross workers. "We said that we could be on board, but that we needed to have some clarification first regarding modalities, practical steps that have to be implemented prior to a launch of such an operation," he said. Red Cross officials don't even know what's in the shipment, Corbaz said.

>According to the Russian news agency Itar-Tass, the shipment is bound for Luhansk and contains 400 tons of grains, 100 tons of sugar, 62 tons of baby food, 54 tons of medical supplies, sleeping bags and "electrical power units."

Renouncing your U.S. citizenship will set you back a cool $2,350(US) starting Sept. 6, when the fee will more than quadruple – up from $450.

Over the last two years, the U.S. has had a spike in expatriations. It isn’t exactly Ellis Island in reverse, but it’s more than a dribble. With global tax reporting and FATCA, the list of the individuals who renounced is up. For 2013, there was a 221% increase, with record numbers of Americans renouncing. The Treasury Department is required to publish a quarterly list, but these numbers are under-stated, some say considerably.

“Demand for the service has increased dramatically, consuming far more consular officer time and resources,” Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy wrote. “Documenting a U.S. citizen’s renunciation of citizenship is extremely costly, requiring American consular officers overseas to spend substantial amounts of time to accept, process, and adjudicate cases.

“The Department believes there is no public benefit or other reason for setting this fee below cost.”

That’s a policy change from 2010, when the State Department explained it had decided to set the $450 fee lower than the cost of handling a renunciation “in order to lessen the impact on those who need this service and not discourage the utilization of the service, a development the Department feels would be detrimental to national interests.”

In the latest memo, Kennedy describes the process as involving a “minimum of two intensive interviews.” That’s not what Patricia Moon went through when she renounced her citizenship at the Toronto consulate in 2012.

“The questions are minimal and I didn’t spend more than 15 minutes at the window either time. It’s not intensive. They ask you: ‘Are you aware of the ramifications of your actions?” And ‘Are you doing this of your own accord?'”

The Toronto consulate has since switched to a one-interview system. In 2011, officials there held the first meeting in a group format to cope with demand.

43 UN peacekeepers seized in Syrian Golan Heights


>Syrian armed groups, some of whom are linked to Al-Qaeda, captured 43 UN peacekeepers on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights

>The 43 peacekeepers from Fiji were forced to surrender their weapons and taken hostage near the Quneitra crossing, but 81 Filipino blue helmets "held their ground" and refused to disarm, the Filipino defense department said.

>The UN Security Council "strongly condemned" the detention of the 43 and the "surrounding of positions" manned by the 81 other peacekeepers, by "terrorist groups and by members of non-state armed groups."

>Six countries contribute troops to the 1,200-strong United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF): Fiji, India, Ireland, Nepal, the Netherlands and the Philippines.

>The Philippines, which has 331 troops serving in UNDOF, announced on Saturday that it will pull out of the peace force, citing security concerns.

>Filipino defense officials said no fresh troops would be sent to serve in UNDOF once the current soldiers return from duty in October.

Great article if anyone needs more ammunition against Al Sharpton.

>The citizens of Ferguson, Missouri, deserve better than Al Sharpton. A world-class scumbag with criminally under-acknowledged ties to the Mafia, the FBI, Rudy Giuliani, Nixon administration shysters, corrupt business tycoons, and endless other seedy characters, Sharpton had the gall this week to castigate Ferguson residents for allegedly expressing too much anger at the police over the killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown. That Sharpton is being held up as some kind of moral exemplar, authorized to lecture people on proper behavior, is truly a sick joke. In a sense, though, you have to admire the guy’s brazenness: Few street preachers end up advising the president.

>Sharpton may have conceded agreement with Senator Rand Paul last week that the militarization of local law enforcement represents an undesirable trend, but the good reverend lagged well behind the libertarian right in coming to the realization that equipment from Iraq and Afghanistan could be used for problematic purposes when transferred by the federal government to departments across the country, free of charge.

>Sharpton’s tardiness in denouncing police militarization is perhaps partly explainable by the fact that, per his own reckoning, he literally operates as a proxy for the Feds—namely the Obama administration. CBS's 60 Minutes reported on this posture as such: “He's decided not to criticize the president about anything, even black unemployment that's twice the national rate.” Since acquiring his own MSNBC show, Sharpton—a former FBI informant, it was revealed in April—has regularly glommed onto highly charged controversies (such as the killing of Trayvon Martin) by presenting himself as a sort of de facto emissary between the White House and the “community” he purports to represent.
>> No. 96348 ID: 57e823
Something to take note of is that a lot of people, including black people, are cognizant of Jackson and Sharpton being card players and don't really speak for anyone except themselves, so railing against them can come off as a bit misdirected. There's that line by Token in that South Park episode saying Jackson is not the emperor of black people.

> FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)-There’s a call from Ferguson protestors that could have an impact on-your- holiday weekend. During the massive, but peaceful “National March on Ferguson” Saturday, demonstrators revealed a new plan for civil disobedience: halt highway traffic across the St. Louis area on Labor Day.

> More than a thousand people took to the streets Saturday for the march. They shut down West Florissant Avenue, marching to the spot where Michael Brown was shot and killed three weeks ago, then to a park in Ferguson. It was there, in the rain, that the plan was thrown out by organizers. They’re asking everyone involved to drive onto highways around St. Louis at 4:30pm on Monday, Labor Day and stop their cars for four and a half minutes. The time frame is intended to symbolize the four and a half hours Michael Brown’s body was in the street after he was shot.

This should go over swimmingly. Nothing like protesting the police by blocking traffic. I'm sure regular people tied up on the freeway will sympathize with the protesters who are blocking traffic. Surely.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg already had the gun lobby in his sights. Now Bill Gates is donating $1 million for universal background checks—and there’s more where that came from.

Somewhere in a large glass tower in Northern Virginia, there’s a guy who runs guns with a French name having a bad day. With good reason.

It was reported Monday that Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and incredibly wealthy guy, and with his wife, Melinda, have given $1 million to Initiative 594 in Washington state. The ballot initiative, if passed by voters on November 4 (and it currently enjoys overwhelming support), will require universal background checks for all firearm purchases in the state.

Gates is only the latest Washington billionaire to give to the effort, with original Amazon investor Nick Hanauer providing crucial early funding, and more recently upping his overall donation to $1.4 million. Additionally, Gates’s Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, has provided $500,000 for the cause.

But Gates’s fame brings more attention and further legitimizes the initiative in a way that almost nobody else could. Once the Gates Foundation made it a priority to combat malaria around the world in 2000, it brought down deaths due to the insect-borne disease by 20 percent in 11 years, saving the lives of 1 million African children in the process.

Gates has the ability to grab headlines and make an issue go viral with the constant media coverage he receives, and the financial ability, if he wins, to fund similar efforts around the country. His involvement could be the answer to the public health crisis that makes American children 93 percent of those murdered in the 26 high-income countries around the world.

Meanwhile, the NRA has…Chuck Norris, doing its “Trigger The Vote” Campaign. An actor, in the sense that he showed up in films, who was last seen round-housing Vietnamese extras in B-movies in the ’80s, back when he was only pushing 50. In more recent times, the more Methuselah-esque-appearing Norris has spent his time warning us of 1,000 years of darkness if President Obama is reelected. (He was. Boo!)

That, in short, is why the guy with the French-sounding name, National Rifle Association head honcho Wayne LaPierre, is probably somewhere drowning his sorrows in his Pernod. Because Gates’ involvement in this issue is just about the last thing LaPierre needs.

Money did equal change in the Colorado. The anti-rights fucks might have spent more, 3 mirrion compared to the $500,000 spent by the pro-gunner people but that 3 mil also had to be divided 4 ways. Factoring that in, the Pro-Constitution people and the pro-rights restricting douches probably came closer to even.

Plenty of money was still spent and quite a bit of it coming from out of state. That NRA and Cock money spent effected change.

I'm sure other money, probably from Bloomberg or shot in the head bitch, went into Gov Hickeyloopybroad's and the assbag's who were facing recall pockets to cause the initial change that caused the other change to happen.

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

The university has received $919,917 so far for the project.

“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly,” the grant states. “Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features.”

“The open-source platform we develop will be made publicly available and will be extensible to ever more research areas as a greater preponderance of human activities are replicated online,” it continues. “Additionally, we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes.”

“This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the grant said.

Reminds me of weird word filters.

Like in LoL. There is a character who can turn invisible and teleport. When he does so, he leaves a small cloud of smoke.

And as people tend to, words for things get truncated or corrupted to effectively mean the same thing.

To tie these things together, people in LoL often say, "shaco poofed, ss". This would get filtered to "shaco ****, ss".

Now over in the British Isles... poof tends to hold another definition. Just look it up.

The problem is that most software out there does not determine context. It's actually rather poor at it. I can talk a bit more about this, ngrams, bayesian filters, and other stuff if I ever get free time. That or post a few links.

Friends in intelligence, friends who are non-military operatives in WB - but as far as I know it has already seen some low profile publications.

What led to this conclusion was a large immigration of Hamas operatives to the West bank believed to be conducted by an operations commander residing in Turkey, the seizing of over $500k in cash smuggled to the West bank for weapons acquisitions (Hamas being short on money, this is irregular) and the seizing of a large amount of newly acquired brand new M16's, handguns and RPGs - these being very irregular visitors to the West Bank in which we usually only see a couple of stolen handguns, homemade Stens, Carl Gustavs, Uzis, old bolt action rifles of various makes, shotguns and the seldom AK or grenades.
I've even personally seen a Garand once, sadly it was entirely ruined because the person keeping it drilled holes for front grips in it and he kept it buried in a shitty oil mixture which soaked in the wood and deformed the rifle.

>We had this thread in the Deemz already, and the Israeli police who were investigating the three teens had told the Israeli government, before the invasion, that Hamas wasn't responsible. It was a lone group of durkas having a good time. The Israeli government knew this, but blamed Hamas in the media and launched the attack on Gaza anyway.

>If this were a clear cut case of Hamas killing three Israelis out of the blue and then launching rockets unprovoked, I wouldn't have such a problem with what Israel is doing. I still wouldn't like them on account of their past bullshittery, but they do have rights and would be pretty well in the clear legally.

Hamas admits kidnapping Israeli teens

JERUSALEM — A senior Hamas leader has said the group carried out the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teens in the West Bank in June — the first time anyone from the Islamic militant group has said it was behind an attack that helped spark the current war in the Gaza Strip.

Saleh Arouri told a conference in Turkey on Wednesday that Hamas’s military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, carried out what he described as a “heroic operation” with the broader goal of sparking a new Palestinian uprising.

“It was an operation by your brothers from the al-Qassam Brigades,” he said, saying Hamas hoped to exchange the youths for Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.

Hamas has repeatedly praised the kidnappings, but Arouri, the group’s exiled West Bank leader, is the first member to claim responsibility. Israel has accused Hamas of orchestrating the kidnappings and identified two operatives as the chief suspects. The two men remain on the loose.

>North Korea transfers tanks to Chinese border


>North Korea has transferred one of its newest and most modern armoured units to the border with China, in the latest indication of the depth of the rift between the two erstwhile allies.

>An estimated 80 tanks of the 12th Corps of the North Korean People’s Army have been reassigned to Ryanggang Province, the strategically important frontier region that shields North Korea’s east coast ports, including Wonsan.

>South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported that no tank units had previously been stationed in the province and that the 12th Corps has been reinforced with an armoured infantry unit, artillery sections equipped with multiple rocket launchers and brigades trained to carry out “special warfare”.

>Formed in 2010, the unit has the specific task of repelling Chinese troops in the event of an incident in the border region. However, military analysts believe that the North Korean unit would stand little chance in the event of a full-scale attack by the technologically advanced Chinese forces.

>Quoting South Korean sources, the paper also reported that a further 80 armoured personnel carriers were scheduled to be deployed to the province in the near future, apparently on the orders of Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader.

>The reason for the transfer of front-line units away from the heavily fortified border with South Korea is the growing fear in Pyongyang that China, North Korea’s only significant ally, could be preparing to “betray” Mr Kim’s regime.

Pokpung-ho is stopped production at a few hundred because UN sanctions (1718) in mid 2000s prevented DPRK from obtaining parts for it
This would suggest it's using some kind of more modern tech inside it that DPRK can't copy, which is a limiting factor on unit production

Isn't (or wasn't) there a major issue with methamphetamine being produced in North Korea as medication, it going across the border to China as a black market cash producer and then coming back across into North Korea on the same black market?

North Korea obviously can't withstand an assault by China and they've got to know it. Could this have anything to do with that? Or some other similar issue of that type along the Chinese border?
