>PUNTA DE ARAYA, Venezuela (AP) — The pirates had killed Flaco Marval's brother and two cousins, and word was they were coming for the rest of the family.

>So the skinny 17-year-old and the other Marval men ran to grab the guns they'd soldered together from kitchen pipes, smoked an acrid-smelling drug to boost their energy, and went out into the night to patrol the sandy village streets. Flaco was flying high.

>"We just have to kill these thugs, and then we can go back to fishing like we always did," he said.

>Pirates are terrorizing the coastal state of Sucre, once home to the world's fourth-largest tuna fleet and a thriving fishing industry.

>That trade has collapsed, along with virtually every industry across Venezuela. Gangs of out-of-work fishermen prey upon those who still venture out into the open sea, stealing their catch and motors, tying them up, throwing them overboard, and sometimes shooting them. The robberies have taken place daily this year, and dozens of fishermen have died.

>"People can't make a living fishing anymore, so they're using their boats for the options that remain: smuggling gas, running drugs and piracy," said Jose Antonio Garcia, leader of the state's largest union.

>Venezuela's once booming oil economy is on its knees under socialist President Nicolas Maduro. In the low-lying western ranching region, cattle are dying for lack of feed. The mineral-rich states to the east no longer produce metal. In the agricultural heartlands, farmers wait in food lines to buy the crops they once grew before fertilizer ran out. Across the petroleum belt, rigs and refineries are silent, and this month has seen the rise of gas lines in a country with the world's largest oil reserves.

>A 41-year-old man has ended his life by fatal injection rather than carry on living as an alcoholic, in a radical new extension of Holland’s euthanasia regime.

>Mark Langedijk decided that death was the only way to escape from his addiction to drink, according to an account published by his brother.

>Mr Langedijk set the date for his own death and was joking, drinking beer and eating ham and cheese sandwiches in the hours before his GP arrived at his parents’ home to administer fatal injections, it said.

>The death of Mr Langedijk marks a new departure in Dutch euthanasia practice, which killed more than 5,500 people last year.

>The scope of the mercy killing law, introduced 16 years ago to apply only to those in unbearable suffering, has already widened so that those who die include many whose problems include ‘social isolation and loneliness’.

>One of those who died was a woman in her 20s who had been a victim of child sex abuse.

>Papers released to explain the workings of the euthanasia laws said doctors believed she could not live with her mental suffering and her post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions were incurable.

They want to die. Their death does not affect you. Who are you to say they can't kill themselves? If it's still their wish after therapy & counseling, why the fuck not?

Let's say a person with Crohns disease is suffering from depression. Their treatment is as simple as removing gluten from their diet (just as simple as an alcoholics treatment).
Instead this person is depressed enough not to take treatment, but to call the suicide squad.
Is this also fine by you?

There are so many fake tales floating around about the 2016 election that they appear to be getting confused for one another.

After a gunman who cited a Hillary Clinton-related conspiracy theory entered the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in Washington on Sunday and fired one or more shots, reports and tweets pointed to Donald Trump's pick for national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, having fomented the rumors that apparently spurred the man.

Here's Flynn's tweet:

U decide - NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes w Children, etc...MUST READ! https://t.co/O0bVJT3QDr

— General Flynn (@GenFlynn) November 3, 2016

And here's a sampling of the reactions:

1. Gen Flynn tweets about Fake HRC Comet Pizza conspiracy. 2. Comet gets threats. 3. Gunman enters Comet today. https://t.co/vS3cv2F6ui

D.C. police detained a gunman on Dec. 4, who had walked into Comet Ping Pong, a popular Northwest Washington restaurant and music venue. Police said no injuries were reported. (Video: Faiz Siddiqui, Bastien Inzaurralde/Photo: Sarah L. Voisin/The Washington Post)
The link that Flynn tweeted appears to refer not to alleged Clinton-related sex crimes at Comet Ping Pong but rather makes explicit reference to Epstein. After citing anonymous New York Police Department sources linking Clinton to “child exploitation” and “sex crimes with minors,” among other crimes, the article from far-right website True Pundit points to the Epstein case:

The new emails contain travel documents and itineraries indicating Hillary Clinton, President Bill Clinton, Weiner and multiple members of Congress and other government officials accompanied convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein on his Boeing 727 on multiple occasions to his private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, sources said. Epstein’s island has also been dubbed Orgy Island or Sex Slave Island where Epstein allegedly pimps out underage girls and boys to international dignitaries.

Both NYPD and FBI sources confirm based on the new emails they now believe Hillary Clinton traveled as Epstein’s guest on at least six occasions, probably more when all the evidence is combed, sources said. Bill Clinton, it has been confirmed in media reports spanning recent years, that he too traveled with Epstein over 20 times to the island.

Comet Ping Pong is not referenced by True Pundit — either explicitly or implicitly. And in fact, the Reddit posting that spawned what's come to be known as “PizzaGate” (the thread has now been taken down by Reddit) is from Nov. 4, according to Snopes — two days after the True Pundit article posted on Nov. 2.

The whole matter is a near-perfect microcosm of just how much fake news stories have penetrated our political process — so much so that we can't even keep them straight. And it's likely to lead to those who embrace conspiracy theories or simply distrust the mainstream media to believe Flynn was unfairly maligned for his tweet.

But it's also worth noting here the Flynns have trafficked in these kinds of bogus stories many times before. And even as Flynn Sr. can't be specifically tied to fomenting the Comet Ping Pong rumors beforehand, his decision to pass along a baseless article about the Clintons and sex crimes makes conspiracy theories like Comet Ping Pong more believable. This stuff is becoming a scourge.

In addition, Flynn's son isn't someone who just happens to be related to an appointee to a major post in the Trump Cabinet. He's someone who has advised his father at the highest level — making his embrace of baseless conspiracy theories a very legitimate issue.

Mike Pence Has His Own E-mail Scandal

For the past year and a half, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has been mired in a legal dispute over government transparency as his lawyers fight to withhold the contents of an email that some say should be considered public record.

Critics of the vice president-elect's decision to not release the records — specifically an email attachment sent to Pence's chief of staff in 2014 — say it sets a dangerous precedent that would give the executive branch the ability to decide what's public and what's not, without much accountability.

William Groth, a Democratic attorney who sued Pence last year in an effort to unseal the records, said there's also some “element of hypocrisy,” as the Republican governor and President-elect Donald Trump spent the past several months criticizing Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

After an FBI investigation of Clinton’s emails, FBI Director James Comey told the Justice Department that no charges were appropriate.

State officials say there are no comparisons to be drawn between the two cases.

“They aren't even in the same universe,” Matt Lloyd, Pence's spokesman, told The Washington Post. “One broke the law, and the other did not.”

Sounds like apples and oranges.

Clinton sent classified emails through an unsecured server, had her maid print out classified material, and actively destroyed evidence of wrongdoing.

Pence has some emails as governor he thinks should remain private while others say it should be public because he was the governor and the email was sent in an official capacity. The content seems to matter little, just the fact Pence told them to eat a dick about getting the email.

There can be the argument that anything sent under the guise of government business that isn't classified should be open to the public. There are good arguments for and against.

Nothing sounds too controversial about this except the word "email".

You are assuming that she could even manage to hook up a printer or even figure out how to work them.

My mom is like in her 50s and has a crippling inability to work a printer despite showing her multiple times and it being as simple as plugging it in and tossing a disc with the driver if one ain't already on the 'puter. Has trouble printing anything not super duper simple. Printing emails, fugetaboutit.

Hillary is even older and no doubt even more computer illiterate. Probably so hard to find her missing emails because she stored them on a blazing fast 8 inch floppy.......disk and somehow lost it. That or the FBI is a bunch of millennial douches who had no idea what to do with them. Probably spend an hour trying to fit the internal disk piece into a DVD drive after breaking them open.

Cuban rum already, if you knew someone who went over to visit when the travel ban was lifted. If I can be honest, Puerto Rican rum provides some competition given their sugarcane history.

China is engaging in protectionism and deflation of their currency.

Using this, they have grown from a backwater of no consequence that couldn't manufacture a kettle in the 1970s to the second richest country in 2016.

Also every empire ever had protectionism, and most lasted for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Donald Trump is proving himself to be what everyone expected of him: totally incompetent, not even willing to make an attempt at acting responsibly. Hopefully the Electoral College does the right thing and picks someone who is actually willing and able to carry out the necessary tasks instead of bickering with rosie odonell about who's fatter.


President-elect Donald Trump has received two classified intelligence briefings since his surprise election victory earlier this month, a frequency that is notably lower — at least so far — than that of his predecessors, current and former U.S. officials said.

A team of intelligence analysts has been prepared to deliver daily briefings on global developments and security threats to Trump in the two weeks since he won. Vice President-elect Mike Pence, by contrast, has set aside time for intelligence briefings almost every day since the election, officials said.

Officials involved in the Trump transition team cautioned against assigning any significance to the briefing schedule that the president-elect has set so far, noting that he has been immersed in the work of forming his administration, and has made filling key national security posts his top priority.

But others have interpreted Trump’s limited engagement with his briefing team as an additional sign of indifference from a president-elect who has no meaningful experience on national security issues and was dismissive of U.S. intelligence agencies’ capabilities and findings during the campaign.

A senior U.S. official who receives the same briefing delivered to President Obama each day said that devoting time to such sessions would help Trump get up to speed on world events.

“Trump has a lot of catching up to do,” the official said.

“The president-elect is missing out on a golden opportunity to learn about the national security threats and challenges facing our nation,” Morell said, “knowledge that would be extremely valuable to have when he takes the oath of office and when he steps into the Situation Room for the first time.”

Richard Nixon was the first president-elect to be offered the PDB after his win in 1968, but he is regarded by many as among the newly elected commanders in chief most hostile toward the CIA, routinely spurning agency analysts.

Priess, author of “The President’s Book of Secrets,” said Nixon refused to sit down with CIA briefers during the transition. To try to get the document to Nixon, intelligence officials resorted to dropping sealed copies of the PDB each morning with Nixon’s secretary.

After Nixon’s inauguration, his aides returned the briefing books still in their unopened envelopes, Priess said.

Nixon, however, met several times during the transition with then-CIA Director Richard Helms, and had significant background in global affairs and U.S. intelligence capabilities, having served eight years as vice president to Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Trump has yet to meet with Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. or other top intelligence officials — aside from an unofficial meeting with embattled Adm. Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, who is rumored to be a top candidate to replace Clapper. Trump has greeted a parade of other officials auditioning for Cabinet positions, but also met with Indian business partners, television news anchors and figures in the entertainment industry.

A Florida real estate remodeler said he has been “harassed by people all over the country” since a video went viral showing him berating a Starbucks barista.

He was incensed, he said, that the woman refused to serve him because he’s a white man who supports President-elect Donald Trump.

A witness said the man simply got angry that his coffee order took too long.

David Sanguesa told ABC affiliate WPLG that he and a colleague met Wednesday for coffee at a Starbucks in Coral Gables, near Miami. Sanguesa said he paid for a drink but claims the barista would not serve it to him. His colleague suggested that was because Sanguesa had a Trump sign on his vehicle.

Sanguesa said he viewed it as “anti-white discrimination” — then got upset and lashed out.

The barista was later asked whether she denied service to Sanguesa. “No, I didn’t,” she responded, according to the Miami Herald.

Starbucks said in a statement Friday to The Washington Post that “embracing diversity and treating each other with respect and dignity is core to Starbucks values and something our partners take great pride in showing. We are committed to providing an inclusive, supportive and safe work environment for everyone.”

The headline should read "Starbucks busted for not catering to a whiny baby who cried racism like he's the white Al Sharpton". However we have character limits for titles.

I'm betting 99% of all the post election bullshit from both sides is bullshit. Just because some blowhard won and some other blowhard lost doesn't mean people are suddenly going to start calling random people niggers or attacking white people when they wouldn't have before. I'm sure it happens, both things, far too often but most likely not much more then usual.

Take this shit with a grain of fucking salt, like several tons worth. There is a reason trust in media is so low, there is reason there is a big hubbub about Facebook having false headlines, there is a reason clickbaiting bullshit is a problem, and there is a definite problem with biased reporting.

Also fuck Starbucks.
