>>184516 Translation: In today's news an australian poster just discovered the Awoo News Network, which features stories that are already in English. Stay tuned for news that probably wouldn't be available or easily translated except for those who already speak Russian, German, Polish, Finnish, Spanish, Romanian, several dialects of Chinese, and maybe a pinch of Norwegian.
Today is the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence. We have annual manifestation called Independence March organized in Warsaw. Initially mostly far right (real far right, not blanket terms for everything conservative) groups took part in it but few years ago those marches gained a lot of momentum and popularity. In the earlier years, there were quite a lot of incidents including fighting with police, burning stuff and general chimpouts by certain groups partaking in the march, but since 2015 it was generally calm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfUqbXSnNKE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NBx0Okr_LY
Last year a lot of western media took notice of this march. It's the biggest such manifestation in Europe and in so large group you'll always find some retards who will take things too far and try to celebrate Poland's independence with presenting flags and transparent that shouldn't be there, soiling the image of the whole march. There were a lot of articles about resurging racism and antisemitism in Poland. Some news agencies wrote even about nazism, which is completely retarded statement when you look at Poland. Most of our right wing despises nazis almost as much as commies.
This year of course it would be too boring to have our politicians forget about their feuds for one day and together celebrate this holiday. >be mayor of Warsaw, member of the Civic Platform (opposition) >decide that its great idea to forbid nationalistic march from happening >do it only few days before the 11th >organizations immediately appeal to the court >in the meantime president and prime minister have a meeting related to that whole affair and decide that they'll organize their own, official march >same time and place where nationalists were supposed to march >court decides that mayor's decision was illegal >but now there are two different marches, parallel to each other
In the end they somewhat came to an agreement both marches went together. We had record attendance, initial reports talk about 200k people, so 3-4 times more than last year. Looks like in the end everything went better than expected but now it's time to see how much backlash from western media our government will get for marching together with bunch of pretty radical guys from various countries.
>>184582 update: police offered 5k of reward for pointing who burned EU flag during the march so member of one of the nationalistic organisations reported that it was their leader (on his behalf) and said that money will be gifted to their organisation
The capital, has been without water since October 31 due to required maintenance to the water system. "The purpose was to renew the water system so it can provide water while on maintenance" In the meantime water trucks have been sent to provide water. After a whole week without Water the service was restored and normalized in November 7 But in November 9 the government asks that none of this water is used just yet due to it being contaminated after the plumbing systems being without use for a whole week.
>About the migrant caravan:
the majority of the migrant caravan rejected the commodities that were set for them by the mexican government, such as protection and refuge they also declined publicly to participate on the temporary program that allows them to stay in the national territory and have access to many services and a job. many of them did stay on the refuges and accepted this aid, The rest of the caravan wants to keep it's way into the border, the current situation seems to be contained so far, but it still seems like the situation could get out of control any minute now. Many caravans also seem to be turning in their own members to the police to be deported, if they find them breaking the laws or their own set rules.
>In other "news":
the media carried out a campaign the day of the mid-term elections in the US to encourage "latino" voters to vote democrat during their coverage of the campaign that day. this was pulled out by many local news on TV and a few on the radio during the day of the election apparently all across the nation.
>The (((banks))) get hit where it hurts:
Banks actions went down after a proposition was made on limiting the amount of commissions banks charge to their clients. this due to the fact that they charge even more commissions than in their home countries. the banking coordinator stated that this is an abuse "close to usury". To which the elected president answered by saying that "he didn't plan to make any fiscal changes on this on the first 3 years of his presidency".
>Congress representative's daughter shot dead during congress meeting:
A Congress meeting had to be stopped after a representative received a call that led to her breaking into tears yelling that her daughter had been shot dead along another girl who happened to be there too. her daughter was at a local gym when the hitman broke into the facilities, shot her 9 times and proceeded to enter a black car and make his escape. Congress called out the government for the amount of insecurity in the country and asked for protection for she and her family members. the killer was found dead in the same car he used to escape he was identified as "el Richi" a known felon.
>Güey Weed LMAO:
The elect president AMLO presented another proposition to legalize the production, consumption, and marketing of cannabis. There's been scientific investigations about the subject this year and it's plan it's to have it regulated around mid 2019. it's been said that unlike alcohol and tobacco this will be highly regulated and the penalty for selling it to underages will be highly penalized. while it's commercialization it's still being discussed, the main subject currently seems to be more about "personal use" The purpose of this is to try to diminish the amount of violence in the country related to drug cartels, while regulating it's use in the name of public health.
>The Mexican "right" gets dissolved:
The Ex-president Felipe Calderon announced that he would be leaving it's former political party the "Partido Accion Nacional" (PAN) to create a new one with his wife who was a candidate for the previous elections, One of the head members called him out on this move as an "ingrate" and accuses him of killing the only opposition to the incoming government. Felipe Calderon left officially it's former party the 11th of october after he declared that it's current state was corrupt, mediocre and manipulable, while the PAN itself declared that many of the flaws he speaks about manifested the most while he was in charge of the country.
one of the towns in Zitlala, Guerrero was taken by force by an organized crime group who tortured and killed 3 people forcing around 60 townspeople to leave their homes, they group is heavily armed and according to testimony attempting to take over the whole community, the residents have retreated to a sports field since they can't go back to their homes for the risk of getting killed.
>A "very posh" march in defense of the "NEW Mexican International Airport" (NAIM)
A march took place in the capital, where thousands of people marched into the capital center against the results of the poll about the new airport, which took place in the last month of October. they also took the time to protest against the presidential ceremony invitation made to the president of Venezuela. Wearing brand items such as sneakers, shades and hats, they decided to march from "La glorieta del angel" (that big statue on the capital with an angel on it) to "plaza de la constitucion" (the main plaza), It was apparently planned to go all the way to the "National palace" although apparently they didn't made it that far. According to the people who saw them, the great majority of the people gathered seemed to be "new" in the marching scene, people in social media has referred to it as the "posh march" these protests seem to be more and more useless these days, but at least some of them seem to have a common point (and they usually get through as they planned) the point seemed to be more about the usually auto-denominated "high-class" against some sort of classicism while others marched proudly with banners then again auto-denominating themselves as the "high-class", also the majority of the young members of the march seemed to join for a while just to take some selfies and then leave when they got bored.
Humble vegetables salesman Becomes political Saint

>Shi: "Mayor, what are you going to do with this thug next to you?" >Kuo: "Rep, no need to be so excited, I'll turn myself in.

Please say; please rep, explain clearly. I don't understand what you are saying right now. Not sure if its like, your grammatical issue, or wording, and calm down a bit, bro, and tell us." insert laughing tom cruise
fast forward to today, where the yt video resurfaced, Kuo's heroic comebacks has inspired tens of thousands. Farmers kneel down to him and present him with vegetables. Fathers shave their head to look like Kuo, and children cry because they can't recognize their dad anymore. He is almost like the second coming of Jesus (but with brains for comedy).
Kuo is running for Kaohsiung city mayor, a previously rock solid DPP vote base. This year though, it might be different. Heavily farming and industry based Kaohsiung, might actually flip to KMT, which is a major step against the green washing from the last Presidential election.
Despite the lack of funds (DPP president used executive powers to financially block all KMT assets), It has been another after another record gathering of events just this past two weeks. Just today was 90 thousand people have gathered. (pics related)
>>184517 So this is for international news? Ok lemme try this
So the other day some dune coon did a terryrust attack in melbourne (PRONOUNCED MEL-BIN YOU FUCKING BURGERS) and stabbed some cunt in the neck. However as police were fighting him with batons, some random hobo ran up and slammed a shopping trolley into the attacker, stunning him for long enough that the pigs could draw and shoot the cunt in the chest. Henceforth known as Trolley Man, this guy got on national TV, became a household name and even had a gofundme dedicated to him raise over 100 grand. However, discovered after he showed up on every national news outlet in the country, it was discovered this absolute mad cunt was also wanted for like 3 robberies. Now in police custody, the legend of trolley man lives on.
DPP is the Democratic Progressive Party, KMT is the Kuomintang of China often translated as the Nationalist Party of China. KMT obviously the longest standing party, DPP came on later when democracy was allowed in Taiwan.
The weird contrasting thing about political landscape in Taiwan is that: KMT socially behaves like the Democratic Party in the US, but policies are very right (conservative). The DPP is very Progressive socially, but hits really low, like whatever trump is doing right now.
DPP has your true to honest SJW agenda though, which is still a minority in Taiwan. Their voter base is usually the very old and the very young. The current president is a female, and as you guessed, the DPP party lead. Their people are usually less educated. There isn't a lot of educated DPP people in proper goings of the place.
KMT is literally the founding party of Taiwan (their party symbol is literally in the country flag), and they have... really natsoc nationalistic organizations of government, honestly. Which isn't that surprising because KMT had generals trained and educated by Nazis before during WW2, and some values might have translated.
>>186682 I often envy Asian countries and their pride of their country and people. And I am glad to hear that the "SJW party" is in the decline (if I understand correctly), and that Taiwan is getting back to its roots and their people.
Hopefully, honestly. The identity problem is long lasting because of our larger neighbor (big brother mainland china). Mainland did suffer a cultural laps a lot more than the other Asian nations.
DPP supported pride parades, so you are pretty correct calling them the SJW party. "President" Tsai literally played the women card during her election, and had less than a 1/3 of the vote of all voters in Taiwan, but KMT people just didn't came out during the last election.
A lot of failure high horse failures on KMT's part. The candidate was too high nose, and of the elite. (like how out of touch Hilary is, without all the cloak and dagger satanic shit)
Not voting literally let the place into major decline... No leader, no spirit, lack of pride, and yah. Taiwan is the least competitive of the 4 modern Asian nations rn.
The road to "integration" back to china is long and hard and tenuous, and no one knows how its going to go. or what integration even is. But it won't be done by DPP people if DPP continue to follow their thuggish ways.
>>186688 Also, if I'm not mistaken, the KMT (blue) party sees itself as the rightful heirs of China, while the DPP (green) promotes a more conciliatory stance.
I'm living in China right now but I have to say I don't want Taiwan to integrate until major reforms make the mainland less Orwellian (which may be never). I have no love for the (((Western))) world order, but the suppression of free speech and the social credit system is what it aspires to be. Got arrested some time back just for posting a (harmless) Bitchute link on Wechat. Screw it.
>>186691 ooof, I want to know about that arrest of bitchute thing, maybe article?
So the thing with elites.... From like the perspective of a upstanding citizen, there shouldn't be elites that are enforcing their own will. They can exist, we have no right to stop someone who is more successful (by inheritance or ability) to take away their assets. But assets are not part of democracy, and should not be involved in citizenship. Its all on the people and due process.
There are definitly some consparicy levels of things going on behind the scenes though, the Soong family is questionable, (sabotoshed the KMT election in 2016) they are literally decedents of royalty still.
We honestly do still hope to be the "Original China" but its impossible to sell such a perspective to the international community. We have 100 places accepting ROC passports, though we aren't a "Country".
Structurally, financially, relationally (foreign affairs) Taiwan is literally a country in every aspect except name. So make what you will of that.
China isn't a complete shit hole, but its still half. While the other half is hyper future city dystopian. The most crazy combination possible. Huge topic for another time maybe?
Back to elites, the Soong family is possibly along side the holy see, but who knows really what kind of relations or status they have. I personally follow a lot of high conspiracy stuff, and I find that a lot of the recent western drama is, just that... If I have the time, I would honestly dig into all the high fly CFR, and special interests things around the world.
Oh and, nice image, that taiwanese kindergarden got btfoed for playing hitler at school play. sad. I wonder how much of a grip that reactionary "antisemite" accusation has control of us here in Asia...
I think I have a decent amount to start with even if I'm not even half-way done writing everything I want down. It's a start.
Hello, I'll be your Southeast Asian anon, ready to serve what I feel is important news.
Most of the international news that the Philippines is involved with deals with ASEAN directly or indirectly at one point or another, ASEAN being the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. ASEAN is an intergovernmental organization centered around the Southeast Asian countries and integration between the ten countries that comprise its core. ASEAN is made up of: Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. Diplomatically speaking, there are two very relevant concerns for ASEAN: the Rohingya affair and the South China sea dispute between the People’s Republic of China and many of the countries in the South China sea region. New developments in the South China sea dispute saw an exchange between the United States of America and the PRC whereby the two countries upheld their mutual desire for peace and stability in Southeast Asia. Despite this affirmation, the two powers still exchanged words with one another concerning the military presence of the other in Southeast Asia. The USA asked for the PRC to remove its navy and missiles from its installations in the disputed Spratley islands while the PRC told the USA to stop patrolling the air and sea of the region to which the USA responded that the USA can and will travel around international waters. This is a likely jab at the PRC’s claim that most of the South China sea should be in its possession, including the Exclusive Economic Zones of many countries along the South China sea. Exclusive Economic Zones, or EEZs, are sea zones where only particular states have a special right to exploration and resource exploitation within them. As such, one might see how egregious the actions of the PRC are in legal and diplomatic terms. The Rohingya affair, that is the claimed genocide of the Rohingya and their migration/expulsion out of Burmese land, is not being resolved ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Should ASEAN prove itself incapable once again of dealing with the Rohingya affair, ASEAN as an international body will lose face and suffer diplomatically. This is significant as ASEAN has consistently shown itself to be one of the best examples of large-scale regional organization. No matter what one’s feelings are concerning Muslims, the issue is deeper than mere ethno-religious conflict between the “baste” Buddhists and the “mudshit“ Muslims who “likely deserve it and even if they do not, they’re Muslim anyway so it doesn’t matter.” As people here might not be too interested, I will not go in depth on the history of the Rohingya conflict and I will, at the most, give a short and overly simplistic overview of the history of the conflict. Historically speaking, the Rohingya affair has its roots in Myanmar’s colonial history back when the region was under British control. The British required labor and the local Buddhists did not meet the expectations and needs of the colonial powers thus the importation of Bengalese Muslim labor which was a group who saw greater revenues for land ownders. For many years, there was not any trouble between the two ethno-religious groups and one might even say that the relations between them were quite amicable and the entry of the Bengalese is not to say that there were no Muslims in the area prior to the entry of the Bengalese. Trouble began between when the Buddhists had to flee in droves from certain regions in Myanmar due to a sort of natural disaster. Landowners and officials saw this as a good moment to grant their preferred Bengalese some land, that is the ancestral land of the Buddhists which were recently unoccupied. The loss of that which they saw was theirs by their return to the region was, I feel, the genesis of the Buddhist-Muslim conflict which we now recognize as the Rohingya affair. The Buddhists attacked the Muslims and so started the deterioration in relations and the gradual escalation of the conflict between the two groups. An illustration of the heights of the conflict can be seen in the Second World War where the British had given arms to both groups to fight the Japanese with in guerrilla war, and rather than turn on them the Muslims had decided to turn on the Buddhists instead. It was around this time too, around the late 19th century and early 20th century, that the Rohingya became an entity as the various Muslim groups which have consolidated together and recreated themselves thanks to education giving them the means to do so. Rather than being a mix of various peoples centered around a religion, the Muslims created for themselves a new collective identity which was called Rohingya and rewrote history so that they were not merely a mix of migrants and some local peoples but a true ethno-linguistic group with a religion distinct from that of the majority in their country of origin. In effect, they made a creation myth for themselves. The problem cannot be solved by a declaration that the Bengalese from Bangladesh must welcome its people back for they do not recognize them, nor is merely staying in Myanmar itself so tenable between the conflict in the country. In the end and by my understanding of the literature, the problem has its roots in perfidous Albion, and property rights having been discarded, and the connection that a people feel for the land of their ancestors.
President Rodrigo Duterte made a controversial decision: he sent the military to do a partial take-over of the Bureau of Commerce in an effort to “keep peace” for the BoC is “in anarchy.” While the military is not tasked with doing the technical duties associated with the BoC, such as keeping ledgers, and the overall structure has been preserved but the military has been tasked to facilitate the effort to root out corruption from the Bureau. The tipping point which the President might have pushed President Duterte to make this decision was the scandal that the BoC was involved in recently: the large-scale smuggling of shabu (crystal meth) worth roughly 1 billion php or $220 million.
In other news, President Duterte is said to be looking to the possibility of meeting with some of the leaders of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, or the NDFP, in order to conduct a peace process with the Norwegians acting as a third-party facilitator. The Philippines has had a colorful history with subversive communist groups like the NDFP and Maoists such as the Communist Party of the Philippines and its military arm the New People’s Army, or NPA. The leaders of the NDFP and CCP are living in European nations due to their subversive activities and all blood spilled between it and the government.
It also seems important to inform people of the general sentiment and anger that the colonial past of a country feels for those whom they designate as having ties to their oppressors. As such, in some regions Westerners are being kidnapped and killed in vengeance of what has happened centuries past, and if one counts the colonialization of the Philippines by the USA, then it hasn’t even been one century since that has happened. Such are some of the issues with nationalism and the sentiments of history. While this doesn’t sound too important, that there are news articles about it indicate that attacks of this kind are happening at a pace that is more common than usual.
There have been a number of meetings of late that point to interesting times. Among Asia-Pacific leaders, there is an agreement known as the Regional Comprehensive Economic PArtnership (or RCEP) which is being promoted as a free-trade program that is to involve around almost 30% of the worlds GDP; signatories of the agreement include a majority of the Southeast Asian nations, Australia, New Zealand, South (Worst) Korea, Japan, India, and the PRC. I will assume that everyone here is aware of Trump’s actions and his rhetoric and one may retrace the general logic from there. There seems to be a general desire for more multilateralism in the Asia-Pacific, rhetoric for cooperation among nations. Talks concerning what the RCEP is and would be have been ongoing since 2011 and will likely be signed this year.
From my understanding of the RCEP, it is an attempt to lower barriers to trade and establish better economic relationships and trade, thus lowering prices, whilst boosting economic growth and ease of business with stronger institutions, allowing for healthier and more stable economies. Should this come through, the economies of the signatories will be more integrated with one another.
If one would rather read it for himself, refer below.
Quoting from ASEAN’s document proclaiming the guiding principles of the agreement:
“Recognizing the ASEAN Framework for Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), the objective of launching RCEP negotiations is to achieve a modern, comprehensive, high-quality and mutually beneficial economic partnership agreement among the ASEAN Member States and ASEAN’s FTA Partners. RCEP will cover trade in goods, trade in services, investment, economic and technical cooperation, intellectual property, competition, dispute settlement and other issues.
Negotiations for the RCEP will recognize ASEAN Centrality in the emerging regional economic architecture and the interests of ASEAN’s FTA Partners in supporting and contributing to economic integration, equitable economic development and strengthening economic cooperation among the participating countries.”
From the ASEAN website on RCEP:
“RCEP has the potential to deliver significant opportunities for businesses in the East Asia region, given the fact that the 16 RCEP participating countries account for almost half of the world’s population; contribute about 30 per cent of global GDP and over a quarter of world exports. RCEP will provide a framework aimed at lowering trade barriers and securing improved market access for goods and services for businesses in the region, through:
-Recognition to ASEAN Centrality in the emerging regional economic architecture and the interests of ASEAN’s FTA partners in enhancing economic integration and strengthening economic cooperation among the participating countries; -Facilitation of trade and investment and enhanced transparency in trade and investment relations between the participating countries, as well as facilitation of SMEs’ engagements in global and regional supply chains; and -Broaden and deepen ASEAN’s economic engagements with its FTA partners.
RCEP recognises the importance of being inclusive, especially to enable SMEs leverage on the agreement and cope with challenges arising from globalisation and trade liberalisation. SMEs (including micro-enterprises) make up more than 90% of business establishments across all RCEP participating countries and are important to every country’s endogenous development of their respective economy. At the same time, RCEP is committed to provide fair regional economic policies that mutually benefit both ASEAN and its FTA partners.”
Beyond statements, official and from various partners and signatories, there is not much else I have to go by.
While I mentioned the RCEP news first, the most visible economic news and the most important one by most people’s estimations in recent times have been the price inflation which has clocked to more than 6%. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or BSP, the local central bank, has been doing a lot to curb the inflation and maintain the current GDP which has been flagging to levels below the high standard of 6% growth that the country has accustomed itself to. While successful in its mission to slow down the inflation rate, other actions that the BSP is taking may serve to hinder its desired GDP numbers. The greatest effect of the inflation is a decrease in consumption and investment all around that comes with the lower real wages and higher prices of goods all around. The BSP has also been looking to raising the interest rate which will only further drive the current GDP down as partially seen in the dipping levels of the Philippine Stock Exchange which clocked at 6,900. The peso is also weakening due to the widening trade gap that is seen in the great number of imports coming into the country. A lesson in prudence comes up though as once the figures have been dehomogenized, one realizes that the trade gap in imports is partially made up by capital goods. Capital goods point to increases in local productivity and investment once they have been set in motion as a part of the local economy. So it isn’t all that bad. If the good numbers are any indicator and that there are articles on these in the newspaper, the financial sector and the producer’s goods sector are doing well relative to others parts of the economy.
Rising energy levels, one of the highest in Southeast Asia in fact, are not helping either. While many lay the growth in prices of basic necessities and price level on the higher fuel prices, people are missing the fact that energy is an integral component across the entire economy since everyone requires energy to meet its needs. Higher energy costs affects the economy in its entirety, no industry is an island for all industries are interconnected the same way that all markets across the world are interconnected. The figures roughly come up to $1.11/liter of gasoline and $0.92/liter for diesel, while these prices are the 4th highest in Southeast Asia, they’re modest in reference to all other prices across the globe which stand at $1.93/liter in Norway and $2.15% in Hong Kong. While fossil fuel prices are rising, there is some hope in the green energy sector and the joint exploration program that the Philippines and the PRC are conducting in the search for fossil fuels. The latter is in exchange for waving rights to some of the country’s EEZ where the conflict between much of ASEAN and the PRC lay, the Philippines is receiving investment, loans, and assistance from the PRC (No matter one’s personal feelings on the matter, the words of Ferdinand Marcos echo in his declaration/prophecy that the country should seek cooperation with the PRC due to their immense strength and President Duterte seems to be following that word of advice in his dealings with the PRC. You may also call it him cucking out to what is the right of the Philippine peoples and you might also call it an indicator of President Duterte’s having sold himself out to the PRC); the former is in reference to the prediction by French experts that the green energy sector has a very good chance of becoming “vibrant, eco-friendly, secure and efficient” in five years which is due to shifts in consumer choice, regulatory framework, and technology. The main hurdles in green energy are poor government policies and “bankability”, the French experts recommend deregulation and competition in energy as a means to speed the process of green energy development in Southeast Asia.
Labor groups in the Philippines call for minimum wage increases, which was recently passed if what I know is true, and for a food subsidy in order to handle the inflationary pressures felt on the Philippine economy. All in all, the labor group Associated Labor Unions-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines or ALU-TUCP would ideally like a “sustainable” 800 pesos or $16. Economically speaking, this points to greater pressures on both the private sector and the public: greater deficits or lower surpluses in the budget while more businesses close down due to the higher costs associated with greater and greater wage rates, wages being the price for labor. This news comes while the government sees a rising unemployment rate which now sits at 22%, a 2.3% increase from the last quarter.
In reaction to the economic ills of the country, the government seeks policies to ameliorate the situation: the ‘Ease of Going Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery act’ and the Tax Reform for Attracting Better and High-Quality Opportunities’ bill or TRABAHO. The former desires to streamline business processes and reduce government processing time; the latter seeks to lower corporate income tax and rationalize incentives for investors. The effects of these are to attract investment and increase job numbers. Some industries do not see good in the TRABAHO bill so there is more here than it seems.
Last but not the least, the Millennium Challenge Corp. has rated the standing of the Philippines to be higher than its last evaluation for the MCC’s Fiscal Year 2019 score card which makes the country eligible for foreign aid should it be requested. Out of twenty indicators, the Philippines scored a passing mark in fourteen of them. The MCC scorecard is composed of three categories, Economic Freedom, Ruling Justly, and Investing in People. Under EF there are the following indicators: fiscal policy, inflation, regulatory quality, trade policy, gender equality, land rights and access; under RJ there are the following: political rights, civil liberties, control of corruption, government effectiveness, and freedom of information; under IP there are the following: natural resource protection, girl’s secondary education enrollment rate, and child health. The Philippines failed in the rule of law, economic freedom, health expenditures, primary education expenditures, and immunization rates.

Comments on the podcast is stupid, the commends on the video is eh.
Ian Easton has good perspectives on the issue though. Well studied, knows the nuances, and has some what a solution through intellectual warfare. I think Americans (and the rest of the world) should take some opinions from Ian. He resonates with me, and his message is good and well measured.
The only thing I'd say is overemphasized is the part on democracy... It feels really nebulous to me, not that he is using the wrong words, but not specific enough. Personally I think there should be more nuance on what happens in a Democracy, but obviously for his purpose, it is the obvious difference between mainland and Taiwan.
Also, > Ian: "... Taiwan has a ... American style democracy ..." KeK, more like French, but a lot of nationalism ingrained. The RoC government and public sector is nicely balanced. Checkbooks are well crafted, the government has enough of a stake in crucial infrastructure but still leave enough flexibility for massive industrial development, well developed corporation and public sector interactions, war time readiness (for a place of its size), and the huge stockpiles of cocaine beneath the Government.
- Russia’s 5th Column Speaks Out! Liberal Opposition Leaders Thank America for Russia Sanctions (Russian TV News). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WDKEmF0kQ4 --- >On Thanksgiving eve some Russian oppositionists decided to personally thank the US authorities for the sanctions against Russia. They met them in Washington, but instead of the traditional turkey, the guests offered senators and State Department officials to check out their lists of Russians who deserve to be sanctioned. They believe they're doing it to finally make Russia a civilized country. However, so far, the civilizers can't handle themselves.

Community building, peace, and stability are the main points that President Duterte had pushed on in the recent summits (the 33rd Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit and the 26th Asia-Pacific Economic Council summit) with Asia-Pacific leaders, between Asia-Pacific countries.
There is the usual talk of the desires for integration, mutually-beneficial trade, and dialogue building. Some other developments in the South China Sea dispute between the PRC and a number of the nations in the ASEAN bloc: the two parties have renewed their commitment to the “full and effective implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea.” The Declaration is a series of principles and desired outcomes and manners by which the countries of ASEAN and the PRC may interact with each other in order to maintain peace and orderly communication, with the UN’s own laws and other recognized international legal codes are the basis by which the interactions are supposed to take place. What is likely to happen is that the PRC will maintain its militarized position in the disputed zones and the various Southeast Asian countries will learn to surrender to the PRC and let it take what it desires, nipping what one can back in the process, or face further difficulties in international affairs.
From the document (linked below), one can read the entirety of the Declaration but with regard to the South China Sea dispute, these would be the most important lines by my estimations:
2. The Parties are committed to exploring ways for building trust and confidence in accordance with the above-mentioned principles and on the basis of equality and mutual respect;
3. The Parties reaffirm their respect for and commitment to the freedom of navigation in and overflight above the South China Sea as provided for by the universally recognized principles of international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea;
4. The Parties concerned undertake to resolve their territorial and jurisdictional disputes by peaceful means, without resorting to the threat or use of force, through friendly consultations and negotiations by sovereign states directly concerned, in accordance with universally recognized principles of international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea;
5. The Parties undertake to exercise self-restraint in the conduct of activities that would complicate or escalate disputes and affect peace and stability including, among others, refraining from action of inhabiting on the presently uninhabited islands, reefs, shoals, cays, and other features and to handle their differences in a constructive manner.
Coming back to regional summits, APEC sees irrelevance and possible death on its 26th year as the USA and PRC clash, it was even described as the “most disposable of the regional summits.” Sadly, APEC’s (possible) dying spasms as described on this release will be as short as its importance on the international stage.

Economics and Business: The economic position of the Philippines seems to be improving in general as seen in confidence among business leaders and lowering prices, and a most interesting clash between the PRC and Japan over the Philippines.
Some general indicators of the increasing welfare and state of the country’s economy might be seen in the very enthusiastic treasury bill action done by the Bureau of the Treasury where investors in short-dated government securities bought out all of the treasury bills offered, totaling P15 billion as inflation worries eases. Treasury bills are debt obligations sold by a government to investors which is sold at a discount and whose full return is attained by its maturity. In a way, you may see it as a sort of IOU from government to the treasury bill holders. Echoing my post last week, the trade gap that the country is current experiencing is expanding but it slowing down and that it is not something to fear due to the general composition of most of the imports to the country. The imports mostly make up raw materials, intermediate goods, and capital goods, all of which support the expansion of the local economy. Most outflows in October 2018 mostly made up the Philippine government’s payments for its foreign exchange obligations, the government’s foreign currency withdrawals, and foreign exchange operations by the Bangko Sentral, the Philippine’s central bank. Another indicator is that the Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEI) rallied back up to 7,200 points, or 7.270.26 to be exact, which is 186.92 points or 2.64% up from the last point of measurement or more than 300 points ahead of last week of 6,900 points ( >>187115). The rally in the PSEI is attributed to shifts from developing markets to emerging markets, lowering oil prices, and the strengthening peso relative to the dollar.
President Duterte upheld the interests of the Philippines in the recent summits (the 33rd Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit and the 26th Asia-Pacific Economic Council summit) was in his emphasis on the need to “trade freely and fairly to spur economic activities, technology transfer and capacity” to quote the article, and his public support of micro, small and medium enterprises (or MSMEs), which he had called the “backbone” of any economy. The former is likely a reference to the position that ASEAN, and a number of Asia-Pacific countries are moving towards a more integrated economy and geo-political relations but the more relevant piece of information here is that MSMEs are being recognized as the backbone of the economy. This by itself might not mean anything, but it might point towards assistance being planned for the MSMEs, be it in some form of deregulation or a decrease in tax rates which in a way is already being fulfilled by recent bills such as the TRABAHO bill that I have recently reported on ( >>187117). The above can also been seen as an extension of ASEAN policy in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership.
Lastly, the last bit of news is the most interesting of the economics and business news might be the most relevant one among all that I’ll be posting in my humble opinion. The Duterte administration requires a large amount of funding for his ambitious “Build, build, build” program. Where might the funding come from? We don’t know either for the PRC and the Japanese are battling over who would be the one to grant the $9 billion to the Philippines, likely trying to influence the country to favor the other more. Options between the funders and a shrinking debt-to-gdp ratio, thus invalidating most fears about a debt trap, allow for more bluster on the part of the Duterte administration, as seen in Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno’s statements that the Philippines would search for the best rates available. Japan offers lower interest rates, the USA warns against taking up the PRC’s offers due to “opaque” loan terms. That the USA is also making its opinion known in this matter should be a signal there is more to this funding thing than mere soft power. I should watch this situation closely.

Local News: Some news critical of the administration, both of which involve the military in some way: Senator Panfilo Lacson is concerned over the control the President has over the military and police as he sends them to some problem regions as it was mandated via a Memorandum Order rather than the more standard route of ordering the Armed Forces chief of staff or secretary of national defense; and youth groups are up in arms over President Duterte’s desires to reinstate Reserve Officers Training Corps, or ROTC, citing previous abuses and fears of “fascism”.
Senator Lacson’s concern seems to stem from the means that the President used to dispatch the forces to the regions where elections are soon to take place, protecting them from interference by Communist militias who might swing the local politics in their favor or commit acts of terror in general. Senator Lacson cuts straight to the point and questions if the MO is part of a plan to declare martial law or suspending the writ of habeas corpus, the right that stops governments from arresting people without due process. Now on to the ROTC concerns.
Youth groups, mostly a “national network of children’s organizations” with the Salinlahi Alliance for Children’s Concerns and the Kabataan party-list leading the charge, said that the suggestion that the President might reinstate the ROTC over fears of it teaching students “brutality, fascism, corruption and impunity” (Nevermind that most of those are already being taught by the simple fact that the institutional framework of the Philippines and the failures of governance already teach those, as does the realities of life outside of the paradise of perfection imagined by the idealistic; this might also be the time to be frank and decalre my general distate for the Kabataan). While it seems I’m belittling their concerns, and I certainly am with the accusations of Fascism of President Duterte, they aren’t all empty for there has been a record of human rights abuses and deaths at the hands of ROTC programs. I would like to see reasons why the ROTC is exceptionally horrible though. To be fair to the dissenters, ROTC was abolished in the first place by massive student protests. The representative of the aforementioned Salinlahi group also used this as an opportunity to slam the President for being subservient to (much more powerful and wealthy) countries such as the PRC and the USA, “selling out our resources, territory and patrimony in exchange [for] foreign loans and support for his tyrannical rule, they are not worthy to teach the youth nationalism and patriotism” so said Salinlahi secretary general Eule Rico Bonganay. Kabataan’s representative said that “there is no proof that ROTC will inculcate patriotism among the youth”; “ROTC would be teaching students the power of the gun”. It’s not all bad though, there is some level of support among from Army officials. Ideologues, the lot of these nor have they shown itself to be seriously informed. It’s not as though that I’m denying my own biases (I’m something of a neoreactionary myself) and those of the Army officials, but their ideological concerns are clouding their ability to be taken seriously with their “nationalism”. Realpolitik, people. Geopolitics is descriptive, not normative, and your efforts to keep applying the delusions of your “learning” to the unavoidable (such as being “subservient” to the PRC and the USA) do nothing to advance discourse.
Some news critical of the education infrastructure of the Philippines: multilingual and language groups demand that the colleges of the Philippines must teach about the other languages of the Philippines and not just Filipino, that is Tagalog dialect. For some background, the national language of the is Filipino alongside English. The difference between Filipino and Tagalog is that the former has a more “inclusive” vocabulary, opening itself up to the words of the various regional languages. The main argument that the national language must be rooted in Tagalog is due to the fact that Manila, the administrative and economic capital of the Philippines, is in the Tagalog region and so the administrative and thus national language of the Philippines must also be in the region where it is located. It would be preposterous to use a “greatest number of speakers” basis for the national language as some suggest since most of the civil servants in the capital would be of Tagalog origin and would be in a heavily Tagalog region. English works too as a more neutral administrative language and it is indeed used in that capacity. In light of geographic and pragmatic factors, non-Tagalog languages are not suitable unless some new capital be constructed on relatively neutral grounds so that most of the language groups of the country can send or find representatives there. There are other arguments, such as accusations of “Manila imperialism” which does have some merits: mainly that most of the history books of the Philippines and its “founding” stories per say as far as political independence and the pre-revolutionary background goes are centered mostly in the northern islands, mainly Luzon, and in the Tagalog region; one can say the same about the stories of the national trauma from the Ferdinand Marcos regime. In any case, many desire to see other languages included in the curriculums in colleges and universities; my head aches already just thinking of all the problems and logistical concerns that will come from trying to implement this, worst of all the wasted time of the already overworked students. There is also a conspicuous lack of magnitude given as to how many are involved in these pushes for a more inclusive linguistic paradigm. (For the record, I’m not Tagalog myself but my blood is from the Luzon island group).
International News: Two sides (but not the only ones, of course) on the South China sea dispute clash on the pages, both perspectives currently clashing being high-ranking government officials in the Philippine government; there is the Chief Justice on the one, and the Vice-President and a former Ombudsman on the other.
For Chief Justice Antonio Carpio, he sees President Duterte’s actions, that being the surrender of the recognized legal right of the Philippines over the disputed islands within Philippine territory, as a “legal formula” for settling the dispute with the PRC. By waving the UN’s ruling at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in exchange for a more mutually beneficial partnership in exploration and extraction along with investment and cash injections from the PRC, the President was able to create a greater atmosphere for cooperation and is thus “safe”. The deal between the PRC and the Republic of the Philippines was sealed with the memorandum of understanding, or MOU, but Chief Justice Carpio says that it does no invalidate the constitution of the Philippines and is still in agreement with the Hague’s ruling in favor of the Philippines (the issue with the constitution is that it is in the constitution that only the Philippines can and should utilize its natural resources for its people and thus one may describe President Duterte’s actions as being unconstitutional). The Chief Justice went so far as to say that the agreement between the Philippines and the PRC can be a template of sorts for other countries disputing the PRC’s great claims in the region’s waters. Evidently, not everyone sees it from this more, shall we say, pragmatic angle.
Call it editorial but describing the Chief Justice’s position as pragmatic seems as such when weighed against that of the Vice President and the former Ombudsman. Fears of military conflict do not deter former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales and Vice-President Leni Robredo, their comments are “irresponsible” and with such actions the country “cannot survive treason from within”, even if the Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana agrees with the proposition that the Philippine military is negligible to the PRC’s forces. The country must not give up the fight if the opinion of these two notables are to be listened to, such statements and decisions injures the Philippines. “It is self-explanatory,” so says Morales.

Economics and Business: The economy looks to be on the upswing as the indicators favor recovery from the downward trend that was clear throughout the year as inflation exerted its effect on the economy. Problems with the rule of law, the composition of the laws of the Philippine economy, and the lack of attention to the development of the local economy, be it the lethargy of the state or its effects on the prevention of legal private action, continue to plague the development of key sectors and embolden the informal economy to increase its own gains.
indicators (PSEI,treasury bonds, rice imports) There is a very strong demand in the market for government securities, so much so that the Bureau of Treasury rescheduled two upcoming Treasury Bill auctions a week earlier than originally planned. National Treasurer Rosila de Leon says that the robust demand can be traced to inflation troubles easing and bond yield increases. These are positive signs of the general confidence in the economy and the government in its current state and direction.
The Philippine Stock Market Index or PSEI advanced once again for the second week in a row to 7,340.18 points. The difference between this week’s PSEI levels and the last is up by 256.84 points or 3.63% from the much poorer position of 6,900 points not even one month ago. There is also a good chance that the PSEI will breach 7,500 and even 7,800 as momentum accelerates. Local investor confidence can be attributed to the drop in global oil prices and an improvement in emerging market currencies, foreign investors were also a major part of the bounce in the PSEI, another good sign. If my understanding of the general pattern of these things go, the strength of emerging market currencies are in a kind of inverse relationship with developed market currencies, specifically the dollar.
Also on the private market, price inflation in basic necessities will be driven down by the greater entry of imported rice as legislation keeping quantitative restrictions on rice will be eliminated in exchange for tariffs in a year’s time. In other words, the barriers to entry will be in terms of price rather than in the legal amounts of rice entering the economy. The government also plans to augment local production by means of a fund, the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund, to provide farm machinery and equipment, seed production and training, access to cheap credit, financial literacy and other assistance. The lowering of the quantitative restrictions can be traced to World Trade Organization policy that had granted Philippine farmers up until 2018 to prepare themselves for this, extensions being granted to them as they prepared. For some historical backdrop, this is not the first time that the Philippine government has tried to augment local production in farming produce (and other things really such as manufactured goods), while predicting success or failure based on previous examples is not apt due to the great number of variables moving forward, I have my doubts that this current attempt will have much success.
>>189940 In some ways, the legal framework of the Philippines is as robust as ever but it is the same if not worse in a good few others. Tax reforms in recent years have been encouraging in its increases in government revenue, lower debt levels, and lower interest rates which allows for a greater presence of the government in the economy which has been instrumental in maintaining GDP levels as consumer spending has flagged in recent months due to inflationary pressures. Still, the tax situation can be much better on the consumer end with the increases in taxes in a lot of sectors of the economy, fuel especially. Other concerns regarding finance in the country of late are the recent operations of the government to curb dirty money that is used to fund terror. Leading the effort is the Anti-Money laundering Council or AMLC which created the National Risk Assessment report and the National Anti-Money Landering and Terrorism Strategy or NACS where it formulated viable strategies to combat money laundering, smoothing out the problems that the other government agencies might have with one another in the desired goal. Time will tell how effective this will be.
In response to smuggling, the government has decided NOT to lower excise taxes which is a large part of the problem but has opted to implement a fuel marking system in order to curb such troubles. Similarly, the government has done the same with cigarettes and other “sin” products. On a side note, this is an empirical example of arbitrage where the private market, the informal one that is and not the legal one, gets tipped off by signals in the market (rising prices/price inflation and greater demand) to fill in demand where the government has denied greater consumption on the part of the public and so transfer fuel from places that have a relative glut to the places with the greater demand. One may retort about the need for people to follow the law but it’s hard when one requires things in their daily life, fuel especially. Needs must and that can lead to breaking the law if the legal means are closed off from you, hence some pleas for the government to rescind said taxes. To supplement the commentary of Representative Miro Quimbo, the tax on fuel is not only anti-poor but anti-consumer in general. Everyone needs fuel, from business owners, to the rich, to the middle-class, to the poor, even to the government, even the government sector. Energy is integral no matter what and fuel is energy. It affects everyone as any major shift in the legal system might, or jsut about anything depending on what happens. Another notable case of the market reacting to demand is in the prevalence and toleration of railway carts. Railway carts are to be found on the tracks of many of Metro Manila’s roads where people in search of work where they can make a point of transporting people from one point to another while dodging trains as they go. Time and money is saved by utilizing their services, nor is it as dangerous as one thinks, there are almost no known cases of casualties associated with the railway boys network. The railway boys are examples of some of the developments an economy takes in its adaptation to the problems. The problem here is that of Manila’s transport system being insufficient to meet the growth in its population between 1995-2015.
Coconut farmers are receiving distinct attention as a special legislation that is going to infuse the industry with a fund worth P100 billion pesos or roughly $2 billion, most of which has been taken from the farmers themselves many decades ago, in the times of the Ferdinand Marcos regime. The bill is close to being passed, likely by Christmas even, and is very timely as the condition of the coconut farmers is very bleak right now due to a supply glut in the market and a poor state of affairs of other cash crops that the coconut farmers had been growing on the side. What’s worse is that it is happening in the middle of the harvest. A rescue package is being proposed to help the industry, an advocate of it being Ilocos Norte Governer Imee Marcos, daughter and beneficiary of the expropriated of the coconut farmer’s income from the Marcos era, which the farmers cite as being a large source of their long-term weakness as an industry.
The mining sector of the Philippines is also seeing some trouble, its own problems echoing the problem of the rule of law in the Philippines as indicated last last week by the MCC in this post [xxxxxxxxx]. Tax reform has hit the mining industry hard with the doubling of the excise tax on minerals to four percent of gross output. Tax increases, a lack of policy stability (so lots of flip-flops), banning certain manners of mining (such as open pitt mining) makes it so that the Philippines is among the worst in the world for investing in the mining industry so said the Chamber of Mines of the Philippines Chairman (or COMP) Edward Brimo yet it is a believable story as even international indicators agree with the assessment.
This week we had president change, after years of having literally the same faggots on the power (and a few cucks) we have a quite ambiguous president that while some may label as a commie and others have compared him to Trump we are still not really sure of his plans overall. So right now there's some people who think the change will be for good while some of us are still skeptical. This time two ceremonies were made instead of the usual congress ceremony a public ceremony was made in which many indigenous communities came to greet him and give it's support also Silvio Rodriguez
>The new "National Guard"
The new president came out with a new "security plan" for which he has been picked on for it being more like the one from the ex-president: Felipe Calderon. The plan consists in the new creation of a military force which he refers to as a National Guard which will apparently be on the street as the current military is. which also seems to be contradictory to his previous promise to take the military out of the streets, we don't know if this is temporary, but as for now the issue is a bit vague.
>About "Los Pinos"
Los Pinos is sort of like the "Mexican White House"
Which has been opened for the public to visit as the president has said that he won't be using it to live and instead, he will stay at his apartment, the first visits were a bit pintoresque including some quinceañeras.
In the same subject, some of the art that was displayed in there it's "missing" it's still don't know if it was stored somewhere else at the time of the change. or it was just looted by the previous administration.

Puebla's governor "Martha Érika" and his husband and senator "Moreno Valle" were suspectedly killed on a helicopter a day before christmas (24th of december) while coming back from Tlaxcala to Puebla. The helicopter black box was probably sabotaged in beforehand since it was found damaged and exposed without it's armored cover. While many have accused the current president of being responsible for this it is known that the couple had many enemies, including their own political party, this due to questionable operations of which they were accused of including electoral fraud, money laundering, diversion of resources, and also suspected links to the state gas thieving groups.
The president Lopez Obrador has already declared that investigations are being made until they can find the responsibles for the "accident".
There has been a bomb attack in a small town in the Eastern part of Germany. The background of the people who did the attack isn’t clear yet, but the police already arrested them. An attack on an AfD office isn’t something new, there have been multiple attacks all throughout December, but this is the biggest one yet.
>On Thursday the 3rd of January, around 7pm, a bomb exploded next to an office of the AfD (Alternative for Germany) in the small town of Döbeln. >The police arrested 3 suspects in the same night. >The bomb damaged the office, the 2 buildings next to it and a van, that was parked before the building. Luckily, there were no injuries or deaths. >the bomb that was used was a firecracker, that is only accessible to professional pyrotechnists. >The motive is yet unclear, but it’s very likely that it is politically motivated. >SPD politician Martin Dulig says that there is no legitimate reason for this attack. He follows it up by saying that the AfD benefits from this incident.
Brief overview of the AfD: It’s a right-wing populist party that is the third biggest party in all of Germany at the time. It’s the biggest opposition against Merkel and her open-border policy. The AfD also strongly criticizes the Eu and wants to abandon the Euro in favour of a German currency. The party rose to popularity, when Merkel decided to flood Europe with massive waves of undocumented migrants. They also get a lot of votes from former CDU (Merkel’s party) and SPD (social democrats) voters who are dissatisfied with those parties, mainly because they abandoned any conservative value and idea in favour of left-wing policies.
Around 10 states have been having shortage on gas due to a strategy by the government to stop the gas thieving groups, the underground pipes which provided the hydrocarbons across the country will not be in service during that time for which PEMEX trucks have been dispatched to provide gas to the many stations that may need it. Unfortunately this has caused problems due to the long lines that are setting up in the few gas stations that may have gas to fill up. Rumors spreaded saying that oil imports had stopped however it seems like it was actually just a rumor. However this has caused a lot of people to panic and while supposedly the gas stations are not allowed to sell more than 10 liters of gas in containers for security reasons, there is apparently people already selling gas on Facebook.
Apparently if the situation doesn't get any better soon all this could also damage the distribution of many goods and services.
If this strategy is going to work it's still not sure, however it will probably help to link the people who is involved in these groups.
It is interesting to watch, at almost the end of the video food delivery is made to the inhabitants by the communist government; which is the same to keep the people in a vicious cycle of welfare and client-ism.

Twelve students are rushed to hospital in Italy after Senegalese man hijacked their school bus and set it alight ‘to protest migrant deaths in the Mediterranean’
">While driving his bus, in which many children had taken their seats, the man diverted it from his itinerary, tied the children with cables to their wrists and threatened them with a knife. Fortunately, one of them was able to keep his phone and call the emergency number.
>More than 100 carabinieri quickly identified and intercepted the bus and forced it to stop. But the driver, who had hidden petrol cans, spilled them and shouted to the police that he was making this gesture "to avenge the dead at sea". A reference to migrants from Africa who die in the Mediterranean in makeshift boats trying to reach Europe, while Italy denies them access to its territory.
Then he set fire to the bus with the children still inside. The carabinieri then broke windows to get them out. They finally got away with it all, except for a few poisonings due to smoke. 12 children and 2 adults were transported to hospital as a precautionary measure."

>France is the true revolutionary epicenter in Europe and the Yellow Vests, whose scale in public opinion far exceeds the demonstrators alone, are the spearhead. >If we look at the sociology of the pro-revolutionary movement, it is massively supported by workers and employees (50%) and significantly by craftsmen and traders (43%). >The under-35s are slightly more in favor of overthrowing the regime, with 41%. Support is slightly more pronounced in peri-urban municipalities (41%). >But there is something even more interesting: the revolutionary people vote massively nationalist. >The nationalist electorate is more radical than the Marxist electorate.

These 28% are the elders who vote on the right but have a small pension or want to stop the Muslim-Negro invasion. >We are, without a doubt, in a pre-revolutionary phase.
New Zealand shooting: Jacinda Ardern bans all military-style semi-automatic guns and assault rifles
>Prime minister announces gun buyback and says parts that can be converted into semi-automatic weapons are also now banned.
>The Police Association has issued a statement congratulating the government “for demonstrating the courage to take decisive action and ban the firearms that have inflicted so much harm in New Zealand”.
>Association President Chris Cahill says the reforms represent a fine balance between the practical requirements of legitimate firearms users throughout the country, and the need to protect society.
>“I hope that the moves immediately attract cross party support because it is important for New Zealanders to know that their political leaders are all on board with this extremely important move,” Mr Cahill said. >Today’s order-in-council immediately moves to Category E class, all Category A semi-automatics that are not shotguns or .22 rifles. >“These are weapons that have been used to slaughter innocent children, women and men while they were at their most vulnerable – at prayer. It is a move we, as a community, can be proud of,” Mr Cahill said. >The Association welcomed the pledge to pass, under urgency in parliament, law that will ban all Category E weapons, including all MSSAs.
>The Green Party is the next to welcome the government’s announcement on gun control changes. >Green Party co-leader James Shaw said: “Banning military style semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles makes everyone safer. Banning these guns is the first step towards systemic changes to our gun laws.

>>238655 It depends on the brand... Hotter, and longer it kept in the exact same sport the more damage it will do... So ideally at least one laser blocking it, then adjust multiple lasers onto the camera.
But honestly using lasers to do that kind of permanent damage isn't really practical. But it is possible. Hell they could jury rig high powered lasors, and send it through a mirror network to take down cameras during specific times. The higher the power the easier it is to 'see' the beam (which is light bouncing, or splitting from the target direction.)
The light has to stay almost perfectly still, and at a single location so a clamp with a tripod or something is needed. Doing it with human hands isn't very effective for light due to how shakey humans are over long periods of time.
A rock, or a sling shot can ruin the glass/plastic facing trending it useless. Or even a paint ball. Different chemicals can easily ruin such a camera.

>>249525 >that's certainly one way to have an open line of communication I'm not sure if I follow. Putin and this guy Zhirinovsky, in some ways represent the nationalist faction in Russia, in a similar fashion than the struggle in America. However, this people are in no way sympathetic to America neither the West for many bloody motives. Zhirinovsky is like a loose canon, if given free reign, would have launched the missiles many years ago against the whole Western world. One of the main Putin's advisors, Alexander Dugin, wants the West disintegrated and mongrelized. So, if you meant for "communication" some kind of understanding, forget it, they will stab you in the back without hesitation as soon us you lower your guard.
>>249527 Tbh it all may be a clever application of the "good cop bad cop" routine. Putin is certainly much more open and moderate in terms of foreign policy than his advisors and has remarkable patience. My own father (American) has oft said he as president of Russia would have issued the nuclear ultimatum against America for all the base-building and meddling being done.
It's quite clear that Dugin and Zhirinovsky do have influence but Putin is calling the shots 100%.
>>249529 >but Putin is calling the shots 100% This! But I understand that many confuse Putin's nationalism with some kind of misplaced affinity. Nothing more far from the truth, the survival of Russia depends of the West's fall. The funny part is that Putin is not doing much, as a Judo fighter he is using the mistakes and opponent's moves to achieve victory. But also there is the possibility that most of it is scripted and the world leaders are pawns playing along as >>249524 video suggest.
>>249532 The more world leaders are "in" on a conspiracy the less likely it is to hold due to cartel theory; it is more profitable for a member to break the rigid rules if he's likely to get away with it. Therefore I reject the assertion that world leaders are merely "pawns" but rather I believe they're players in the political games of their respective countries. These political games are conjoined but not similar, if that makes any sense, as international elements can guide or steer the process but ultimately power is obtained by those who outmaneuver others in the national political ring. This actually makes the international system more anti-fragile as it makes the political process in each country look more like typical games rather than directly controlled; there is also more stress tolerance as discontent may lead to the ousting of an incumbent without direct harm to the structure, and the newcomer who won is less likely to view the internationalist "in-group" as directly tied to his opponent and more likely to appease them for his own strength. This is soft power and it is highly effective. I'm not quite sure how it applies to Russia as it overtly is on colder terms with the international clique, but there is likely an arrangement or understanding behind the scenes.
>>249534 >I'm not quite sure how it applies to Russia as it overtly is on colder terms with the international clique As I see it, the clique is just one, and its target is one world government, one religion, one monetary system.

>>254057 The cuntry now known as 'Russia' was co-opted and bought out by international banks shortly before the complete genocide of the Tartarian people.

For those that defend Gorbachev in stating that he was a good goy for 'loosening civil restrictions and laws', Gorbachev toed the line closer than Lenin, Stalin, or Putin ever did as he was a much more willing, compliant shekelslave. As a comparison: Gorbachev had 3 mansions and a palace, approximately >700 child slaves, 10 private (nontracked) planes built by Jew-S companies, a bank account worth approximately $180,000,000 in today's rubles, and over 10,000 soldiers to defend him.

>Indian Minister: We Made a Mistake Not Committing Genocide Against Muslims >A government minister has sparked controversy after expressing his regret that India did not sufficiently ethnically cleanse itself of Muslims during the countries’ creation in 1947. At a public event in his native Bihar state, Giriraj Singh, Minister of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, rallied his supporters, claiming, “It is time to commit ourselves” to building the Indian nation properly. >This is not the first time Singh has called for retribution against the country’s 138 million Muslims. In 2016 he called for controls on Muslim procreation to limit their numbers relative to Hindus. Article Two of the United Nations Convention on Genocide (which India has signed and ratified) explicitly prohibits “imposing measures intended to prevent births within a group” as genocidal behavior, while its definition of the synonymous crime of ethnic cleansing includes “rendering an area ethnically homogeneous by using force or intimidation to remove from a given area persons of another ethnic or religious group.” https://www.mintpressnews.com/india-minister-hindu-nationalist-mistake-not-committing-genocide-against-muslims/265076/

They were men whom conveyed honor without arrogance, conviction without dogma, intelligence without subversion, kindness without deception, and humanism without ingratiating arrogance. India has been utterly cucked since the britniggers gained control of it. They've seen the complete subversions of nearly all their cultures according to (((Manifest Destiny))) styled control mechanisms and the worsening of economic, political, and cultural situations, while all foreign relations were controlled by the cuckqueen. Yet the worst of all facts is that the Indians have been carefully, under planned stages, been indoctrinated into becoming the lowest common denominator of Asia through the use of shekelberg banking wherein the average man makes, at best, 2 to 3 Jew-S shekels per day at current. It is well known that the Rothschild, Warburg, Silverberg, Silverstein, Goldstein, as well as Net-an-yahoo himself and nearly all previous pissrael (((leaders))), have been speculating the food prices of India. This has caused the so-called "Untouchable Cultural Problem" where the bottom paid workers, the Untouchables, are forced to subsist on government micro-shekels, their own farming efforts, or starve to death in forced ethnic cleansing of 90-95% of the entire country.

>>272374 Not a huge fan of cops, but it bears mentioning that there's really 2 types of cops on a spectrum. There are cops who will spend time off-duty exercising, working out, and yes learning/expanding their martial arts skills. And then there are cops who fill themselves with donuts and sit at home drinking beer or drinking at police-friendly/specific bars and clubs. One camp tends to involve level-headed, responsible, critical thinkers who tend to favor the spirit of laws (Hey, you have a tail-light out, get that fixed), while the other camp tends to involve unreasonable faggots on a power trip (Your tail-light is out! You broke the LAW!). Police agencies cannot make martial arts compulsory, otherwise they would have to establish a particular martial art and/or school/dojo as being the de facto place to learn, just as they can't do so for fitness and weight training. It is quite usually encouraged, but considering that many police organizations actively discourage the hiring of more intelligent (and thereby more responsible in general) officers, because they are able to see nuance and context and are more concerned with actual law enforcement, rather than code and policy enforcement (police is short for policy enforcement fyi).

The police in the US do seem to be very wound up and have very short fuses and absolutely no discipline.
From the new incident where the burger joint gets burnt down for reason unknown. I expect it is a tactic to add cost to each event and highlight it. What I fully do not understand are two main things: 1. The black man is calm up until he is cuffed. WHY. If he wants to run he had 30 minutes before when he could have done it much better. 2. The police shoot someone who they have I.D. They have his car, most likely his name and address. They have body cam photo for identity. Why shoot someone in the back. Why even bother to chase him. Just report it. Add resisting arrest to the DUI and pick him up later. They even have his breath test result.
My conclusion is that the Police in the US are not very well trained and it is not about race at all. My other conclusion is that if I am being cuffed I don`t attempt to run away because there is high chance of death.
>>272490 I have seen similar shit policing in the London stuff. You wonder if they have any form of command from the top. Maybe a street map that includes street funiture and a more strategic outlook of where and how to control the protest. It all seems to be small groups of riot police in the middle and having zero direction.

>>272499 >He ran off with the cop's taser. It's a non lethal weapon, right? The zogbot took a life because of a stolen electric gun, hardly a reason to kill, not even if the nigger was pointing it at him. And i'm not thinking about the nigger's life, but countless Whites murdered and brutalized by these criminals.
>>272504 >It's a non lethal weapon, right? http://archive.vn/khIdv <Tasers are a class of “less than lethal” tools And, to copy what another Anon has posted: <The difference between less-than-lethal and non-lethal is that the goal of a non-lethal weapon is to not kill while the goal of a less-than-lethal weapon is to ensure minimal death. So if a non-lethal weapon kills someone, it can be expected that it was due to that person having some health problem that would have otherwise not resulted in death or that the non-lethal weapon is somehow defective. Less-than-lethal is expected to kill people, just slightly less, and as such people dropping dead isn't exactly considered a surprise or any defect. Obviously people can either die to non-lethal or not die to lethal and I agree that this distinction is retarded, but it is something to consider. So, to answer your question: yes, it can kill people. >The zogbot took a life because of a stolen electric gun, hardly a reason to kill, And, had he just let him run off, who knows how many people the nigger could have harmed with his new toy; and you'd still be blaming the cop, except now for allowing the nigger to run off with his weapon and cause additional harm. >not even if the nigger was pointing it at him. He did point the taser at the cop. And, what would have happened if he did pull the trigger before the cop shot him? Would have dropped the cop to the ground and then the nigger could have grabbed the cop's gun and run off.
>>272515 To resist is a natural and healthy reaction to any aggression, to defend yourself from a deadly threat by any mean necessary also it is. So, what the government teaches in school to little children about submission to authority is a pile of crap to keep control. I understand that reason isn't applicable to some unruly racial elements, but, to be subject of the same brutal treatment it's not my flavor and not reasonable person will allow an out of control gang to impose its rule on society, to fight and retaliate is the way to go.
>>272499 Go watch the T.V. he was woken from his slumper. Spent 30 minutes chatting and walking the line. Cop tries to cuff him and they scuffle on the floor for a couple of minutes before he runs off. Plenty of time to run and hardly passed out.
>>272522 I have had my fair share of dealings with police. The best policy is to remain calm no matter how much they try to wind you up. I know many people who have done different and they cause themselves a lot more problems and stress. It is hard to know the situation in the US but maybe a little bit of how to deal with arrest would be helpful. In London in the past they used hand out little cards on what to do if caught with drugs, soliciting, stop-n-search. If the BLM really wanted to help the situation they could issue clear guidelines on what to do and in that way the police would follow their rules of engagement rather than the other way round. 1. Stay calm 2. Request officers ID number . . .

The sudden death comes as a surprise as he had been evaluated recently as being in good overall health. >But controversy has emerged in the African country as local pundits have suggested that his death could have been the consequence of poisoning. >Less than a month ago, the Burundian government ordered the expulsion of experts from the World Organization of Health (WHO) responsible for ‘advising’ on the false pandemic COVID-19. >The unexpected death of Nkurunziza is reminiscent of the mysterious plane crash of Polish President Lech Kaczyński in 2009, in which he was killed shortly after he refused the vaccine made by the WHO against the H1N1 flu. https://www.fort-russ.com/2020/06/burundian-president-nkurunziza-dies-suddenly-after-expelling-who-for-false-pandemic/

>Russia >US EMBASSY HELPS RUSSIANS TO VOTE YES ON CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS >It is an open secret that the majority of the Russian population is against the official promotion of LGBT and neo-liberal values that became mainstream in the West. Even in the biggest cities like Moscow or Saint Petersburg, the number of people supporting so-called ‘neo-liberal’ values does not exceed about 5%. There is a Russian federal law “for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values” that bans LGBT propaganda among people under 18yo. In these conditions, the move of the US embassy could be described as an intentional provocation. >Over the past weeks, Russian citizens have been able to follow the situation in the United States, where LGBT activists were supporting left wing and black rioters. The June 25 action initiated by the US Ambassador will motivate a part of uncommitted voters to support the conservative changes to the constitution. >In this situation, the US embassy decision is a foolery or an agitation trick in support of the “YES” vote. Mr. Putin should thank US diplomats or even give a state decoration to Mr. Sullivan. https://southfront.org/us-embassy-helps-russians-to-vote-yes-on-constitutional-amendments/
