    From /pol/, an interesting new propaganda from the Macron regime. New scandal developing YVs launched a crowd funding the boxer's legal fees, gov is using him an example and prosecuting him hard and fast, 100k donated in a few hours, everybody calling him a national hero -> gov shut down the crowd funding before it could reach more and seized the money, while also launching a counter-crowd funding in honor of policemen instead. Heavy msm propaganda of course, criticizing the first crowdfunding and propping up the gov-sponsored one. It's almost reached one million this morning. MSM already promoting it and calling it a success, drawing attention to the great numbers of contributors. During the night, donations kept being sent as regular intervals, phantom donations of 30 euros every second, even at 3 or 4am, etc. We stayed up all night hitting F5 to document it all. Crowd funding platform (which cooperated with the gov and belongs to a bank) tried to justify it as their servers processing the donations with delayed intervals, but this has been debunked, as we tried making random donations throughout the night and they showed up in real time. Google trends results also show the searches don't correspond to the action, with huge spikes for the boxer's and a flatline for the police's. They're using bots and phantom donations to control the narrative. They thought this would help them win the media war but it just further polarizes and exposes their bullshit. This could be the next big push we need but MSM will try to suppress it if exposed.

    Successive European governments have been cowed by street protests / riots from immigrant communities and have changed their policies so as to benefit such communities. When you benefit one community others suffer and for forty years these have been: Working people - who are taxed more to pay for the largesse (nb - all working people - not just the inidigineous, though 16 hour tax credit nail bar people are not included) Indigineous people - who are discriminated against because of positive discrimination for non-indigineous peopls These protests are swerving politicians perspectives of these two groups from seeing them as uncomplaining beasts of burden who will just continue to fund every new policy and giveaway towards being groups in their own right that not only need consideration but should actually be given preferential treatment because they are either paying for everything or suffering as immigration reduces their quality of life. It has put the agenda of most ordinary working people upon the politicians' desk in France and rippling across Europe. It is the wealth from our labours that the state is spending so it can start both taking less and directing more back to those who work. If they can make Macron fall then a populist party will arise as in Italy that will actually serve its people rather than a globalist agenda. I'm 100% backing the motivation behind the protests and if criminal elements are taking advantage of them to loot stores then that still helps as it deprives the French government of revenue and puts more pressure upon them from corporations.

    That, right there is why you don’t marry your cousin. Put a banjo in hands and he could be cast in deliverance.

    moped rider stabbed to death

    Then you don’t understand that some 14 year olds are not “children”. They may be in a legal definition, but in physical and aggressive presence they are very much grown men. It seems clear this individual was involved in gangs to a degree (obviously now we will never find out the truth, just hear what an upstanding member of the local community he was). Who knows what damage he had inflicted on others, or would have done in the future. A 14 YO is very much capable of shooting or stabbing, and in some regards finds it easier. I was appalled at the death of Rhys Jones. Not this one.

    moped rider stabbed to death

    In that same DM story a “top policeman” says the “public should feel appalled by the murder”. Almost making us feel like we as a collective have done something wrong. I feel nothing of the sort, and I suspect neither do 99% of the country. Don’t even feel the slightest bit of surprise. Weary acceptance maybe...

    Man stabbed on train

    A thread crosser again to the moped stabby incident. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jan/08/boy-14-stabbed-to-death-in-north-east-london "three male suspects got out of the car, stabbed the boy and drove off. They offered no further description of the attackers." It's barely taken 5 news stories to more or less prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that your skin colour makes a huge difference to whether or not you are described in any wanted police releases or not. fucking ridiculous.

    Right To Repair

    The wave of cheap consumer goods from China made it uneconomical to repair a lot of goods My dad’s business was sales and repairs of white goods etc In the 80’s he charged £5 to replace the lead on a steam iron, early 2000’s you could buy a new steam iron in Tesco for £5 or a branded one from about £15 I still take great satisfaction in being able to fix items that others throw away that I learned from my dad and also do my own car servicing and as many repairs as possible

    In 1990 my uncle's old dishwasher packed up so he asked me to fix it. The impeller seal had gone and let water into the motor bearings which had rusted. Rang the manufacturer, impeller and seal kit £11.80 new motor £132. What about just the bearings I asked. Sorry sir but it's a sealed unit you can't dismantle it. When I told her they should have told me before I stripped it down she wasn't amused. I ordered the seal kit and rang my local bearing stockist with the part number. They had two that would fit, the cheap version the same as the original or a mega expensive waterproof version. Standard £1.68 Waterproof £2.89 I splashed out on the waterproof version, dishwasher is still working fine.

    I think we can firmly blame the parents for that. Kids don't come out the womb thinking like that. Peer pressure and those expectations can be countered by parents with something called a spine and the word "no".

    moped rider stabbed to death

    Pictured on his moped making gun signs: The aspiring boxer, 14, who hero-worshipped Anthony Joshua but was stabbed to death in the street 'in targeted assassination by rival drugs gang' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6576201/Leyton-Waltham-Forest-murder-victim-Jayden-Moodie-pictured-Anthony-Joshua-boxer-hero.html His moped again.... I hope they keep that quiet my 13yo will be wanting a moped for his bday. Did his family maybe not think it would be a good idea not to give the little shit an illegal moped? Making gun signs ... Oh the irony of being stabbed to death.

    I'd say that organisation is tapping into PETA levels of activist loon. Any reputable news outlet shouldn't be touching them with a bargepole. This appears to be the new BBC cause celebre, indirectly defending women who have killed their partners because they encountered some bastards in their life or their partner was one. That one above killed her other half with a steak knife then sat on him as he bled to death outside. I don't give a ha'penny fuck about her previous troubles, she's a murderous psycho who needs to go to jail. Plenty of other people have serious background issues yet they manage not to stab people to death or use someone's head as a piniata. If you really think about it, this line of 'journalism' from the So-Called BBC is absolutely fucking outrageous. I don't know how they keep getting away with it.

    I no longer even bother with C4 or any of the legacy media for more than 10mins. It's all I can stand before feeling my eyeballs bleeding and the urge to hoof the tv due to the obvious bullshit and propaganda setting off my spidey senses and BS monitors

    To all NGD holder on this board - and I know there's quite a few of you here - I've joined the dark side yesterday and made NGD my biggest holding, and my only gold-price-leverage play (still holding WDO as an exploration play). We're in this boat together now I know the maths for NGD and I'm still terrified by it, but with Rainy River finally operating and still improving that's one huge question mark removed from the equation. Now it's simply the case of how much FCF can it generate, and it will be driven mostly by gold price, although some improvements in AISC will surely be possible as well. I think it should provide at least the same amount of leverage to gold price as Sibanye, without the added drama of the Lonmin deal, ongoing strike actions, MPs calling for suspension of licence etc. They should provide their outlook for 2019 probably next week. I'm expecting 300-330koz for RR and 60-70koz for New Afton, for a consolidated 360-400koz and AISC in range of 1050-1150U$. AISC is really a shot in the dark due to Rainy River still being improved, but it's also much more important than the production guidance. Each $50 change in AISC moves free cash flow generation by 18-20mln and boy do they need every cent of it. Anyway, if we're going down, we're going down together

    For me it's not the financial aspect of fixing things that I enjoy, it's the satisfaction I get from the act of fixing it.

    No taxation without representation. For the UK, that's 17.4m people not required to pay tax.

    In my experience people can live with the certainty of misery. It is the misery of uncertainty that usually breaks the system. I suspect the French could probably just about cope with declining living standards and higher taxes . Nor on its own would authoritarian government or corrupt politicians put demonstrators on the streets. Macron's and the French establishments crime is to add extra insecurity to their lives by its rush to embrace neo liberal globalist reforms with all of the associated side effects. It is a vision that has even less going for it than old Soviet Marxist Leninism. All governments, even oppressive ones, need a minimum level of grudging buy in to the system from the mass of the population. Macron clearly cannot muster that at the moment. There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries … and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it. — Niccolo Machiavelli

    Fake beggars

    I regard the majority of beggars as fake these days. When accosted by a beggar to donate a coin I just say sorry I only use cards for paying and that’s a lie because I’m a cash person. Happened last week in a small out of town shopping centre in Dumfries. When chatting he said he has mental health problems dealing with life. I said I can relate to that and that I went to the Samye ling Tibetan monastery to learn meditation. Fortunately I could pay the small fee for courses and accommodation. Suggested he phoned them because they are generally very sympathetic towards people who really want to turn their life around and if he pitched his tent there they may waive the fees, provide basic food and allow him to listen to the ideas of taking responsibility for one’s own mind. Also told him there are volunteer opportunities for working with bed and board provided. Thanks Mrs he said but I don’t think they’d understand my problems. Oh well, good luck in life then but try and think about this.....if you keep on doing what you’re doing you’ll keep on getting what you’re getting.
