Some US weapons to Ukraine susceptible to jamming. by Dune1032 in WorldNews

[–]Canbot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

If countries see that these weapons don't work, they won't buy them.

Ukraine did not buy them. Other countries will buy them for their purposes where they are killing weaker, less sophisticated people.

Defense contractors could just as easily make money designing and producing weapons that work

False. Defense contractors make weapons according to specifications. They make money by building the minimum viable system. Those are the cheapest to build. Why would the military buy a 10 million dollar rocket to kill a farmer in Afghanistan when a 1 million dollar rocket does the exact same thing? The farmer in Afghanistan is not going to jam the radar, or the gps.

It would be retarded to produce weapons that don't work.

The weapons were built to be sold. They were sold to make money for the people who decide how to spend the money of the American tax payer. The tax payers have no say in any of it.

The consequence could be the loss of a war.

The effectiveness of these rockets has zero impact on the war. Even if they worked. Ukraine has killed off almost all of it's fighting aged men. That is most likely the intention of the jews who control Ukraine.

It seems a whole lot like they had deals in place with "people" or NGOs or whatever, and some big ones were fulfilled, or agreements were made to end them. Chuck Schumer(?) or one of those higher ups said as much at one point.

As I understand it, Venezuela got fucked over at some point in the 2010s, in part due to falling oil prices and in part due to some CIA fuckery that went down during Trump's presidency. I have a feeling that there was some agreement in place to take a lot of people from there.

As for all the rest, I dunno. In Canada we import them for cheap labour and to inflate real estate to keep the banks afloat and boomers happy.

Boston Democratic mayor says criminals should not be prosecuted for theft, gang registry should be abolished by P-38lightning in news

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I can't find what she said about theft. What was it?

The gang registry should be abolished. She's right about that.

Unmasking the Boston Police Department’s Gang Database: How an Arbitrary System Criminalizes Innocent Conduct

Edit: Okay I found the non-prosecution of theft thing.

What she said was "no". Three years ago.

In response to the question: "Do you support the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office’s do-not-prosecute list and expanded approach to dealing with such low-level offenses?"

"Shoplifting" is amongst the low level offenses. Which is what I guess they must mean by Theft. The idea is that non-prosecution reduces recidivism. The Jury is (metaphorically) still out on that, but its an interesting idea: Choosing not to prosecute low-level crimes may reduce future crime, research finds

In "exceptional circumstances" the low level offenses are still to be charged.

I have to say, it's refreshing to see a mayor interested in testing innovative policies in an attempt to find ways to make her city better.

No typos or misspelling ever. It’s copy and paste text.

I’ve brought up some topics that everyone knows about…like inflation, the cost of fuel, rent, mortgages, crime, fentanyl deaths. For example: Almost everyone pulls up to the pumps…remember the “I did that” stickers of Biden point to the price on the pump?

Those topics are common knowledge… if you lie, folks will know. Well, HoMamma and ActuallyBot still lie to us like we don’t know. They make claims folks know aren’t true. And these looney leftists link to other looney leftists who write hit pieces denying these problems exist. So it’s easy to show them up as liars, BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS BETTER.

To add to the lunacy, they double down on that stuff even though the are losing the war. Nothing like doing the same thing time after time but expecting a different outcome. Folks who have never voted for Trump and never thought they would now plan to vote for Trump. The folks are vomitting up that left wing slop. But the propagandists are still trying to force the same slop down people’s throats.

You and I are probably not in their target market. Their target market is folks in their base with terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome and one of two these two characteristics: 1. Kids living at home or in college who have no idea about the cost of living. 2. The very rich who are not bothered by high prices, crime, bad schools and the like.

In short:
Near earth, it is the radio-radiation from water molecules from Earth.
And from space we can not see the black body spectrum anymore, and see only the milkyway and point sources.
Due to the van-der-waals force water produces a "black body spectrum" at radio frequencies.
Which has caused this dramatic failure in science.

If auras interacted in any way with any frequency of EMR, must less visible light, they would be a body of research on them, and we would be able to measure them.

The best and only explanation for auras is a type of synesthesia. Meaning it happens in the brain of the viewer.

Duran: Putin & King of Bahrain; Ready to mediate in Middle East by penelopepnortney in WayOfTheBern

[–]penelopepnortney[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The King of Bahrain went to Moscow and had a very friendly meeting with Putin. This is part of the Arab League's plan to rally support for an international peace conference to resolve Arab-Israeli disputes. Bahrain has long been one of the most loyal allies of the US, but the US doesn't want an international peace conference, they have monopolized the Israeli-Palestinian "peace" process since the 1970s, which explains why the Arab League is reaching out to Moscow. They will probably next solicit the support of China (whose foreign minister, Wang Yi, first broached the idea some months back) as well as India and maybe other BRICS countries.

The proposed international peace conference will break that monopoly with the goal of settling problems of the Middle East without the US at center stage. Alexander points out that in the past the Arab League has been very fractured but on this they're completely unified. I think this is something we've seen happen over the past couple of years due to the efforts of Russia and China to mediate, respectively, between Syria and Turkey, and between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Statements by various Arab leaders suggested that they were beginning to realize they would all be better served by solving their problems with each other internally, a change from the past when the West used its mediation role to play different Arab states against each other.

This is where the prospective trip of MbS to Iran comes in as well. The Saudis have a long-standing diplomatic relationship with the US and are continuing that but in the process gaining many concessions. They want heavy weaponry like bombs and fighter jets and according to Alexander have even been promised nuclear technology.

On Rafah and the recent ICJ directive: the US is still doing foreign policy as though nothing has changed when their position in the Middle East has eroded. This is evident with the western reaction to the ICJ case and the most recent ICJ order. The latter is an update from the January order and if you read it closely it's clear that the ICJ is taking a more hardened view of Israel as they realize Israel is paying no attention to the orders. It suggests that we may see a final ICJ judgment sooner than expected, these things usually go one for years but in this case, the defiance of Israel and the West are making it easier for the ICJ to rule against Israel. It's part of the wider story about the Arab League's actions and the erosion of US influence in the Middle East.

Alex and Alexander also discuss the difference between Western reaction to the ICC case against Putin and the ICJ/ICC case against Israel, a reminder that "setting bad precedents create bad outcomes." Israel argued and the West echoed that it's not a signatory to the Rome statute (which governs the ICC), but neither is Russia and that didn't stop the West from orchestrating the ICC's involvement in the latter case. Now it's coming back to bite them in the butt - not that they'll care, they'll just wave the "rules-based international order" banner and carry on.

In another case of unintended consequences, in the 2000s the West got the ICJ to issue an advisory opinion on Kosovo's independence and Russia has been continuously using this opinion with regard to Crimea and the Donbass (also Kherson and Zapparozhia).

I don't think our 'struggling society ' is the cause, rather the opposite. Trans people and their 'allies' are overwhelmingly white middle class people. You don't see a trans explosion in, say, South Sudan, where people have real problems. I often wonder how society will shift if we have a natural disaster, say something that wipes out the electrical grid for a lengthy period. I'm guessing a lot of people will stop giving a shit about pronouns.

Apparently there are "studies" that transgenders don't have an advantage over women in sports, and may even be... at a disadvantage?? by stoptheearth in TumblrInAction

An aversion to wasting tons of time on something inconsequential?? Honestly you might be onto something. I always wondered why there are zero women in esports or top level speedrunning or gaming in general. I know I always hear "women get bullied in gaming zones" but unless you make yourself obviously appear as an egirl or use voicechat, nobody is ever gonna know.

You'd think video games would have no gender gap given physical strength isn't a factor but it seems to be the opposite, I've been scratching my head about it for a long time

They don't use any subset that we can figure out any pattern to, they rotate between an extremely vast range of IPs that aren't within just one VPN or country. I'd have to ban a good chunk of all IPs, and I'd be banning legitimate users too, which isn't good. And then they'd just change to a different IP range anyway

Woman in germany jailed for publishing crime statistics. by Canbot in conspiracy

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Your think:

"Woman in Germany" are the only correct words in the headline.

The court found that the statistics were quoted out of context in an effort to incite hatred for political gain.

Not really "publishing". She linked to an article. And not really "Statistics", more "out of context data".

She was not jailed. She was fined.

Is like a Gish Gallop?

Make a substantial claim on one of those points then, instead of just trying to drag down the level of discussion. What do you claim that the court found. Or what do you claim her jail sentence was? Or what statistics do you think she published in this Facebook post of hers.

I'm surprised that the "Straight" trans don't simply leave the kwir acronym.. Well, actually I'm not surprised- because they and everyone else secretly knows trans is bullshit, and the latter are just "being kind"(aka lying to their faces to stave off a meltdown).

How little evidence she needed to conclude that Ozempic's use is due to social contagion, haha.

Basically she just assumes most people are okay with being fat, and it's external influences like the evil medical community (but not the one that gives kids hormones, a different one entirely!) that make us think it's not okay, for some crazy reason, to not be able to go up stairs without having a stroke.

The people who push for letting men play women's sports just fundamentally misunderstand everything about sport and competition.

They don't grasp the idea of a fair playing field, they're complete aliens to their own bodies/the capability of athletes, they don't even seem to understand why people compete in the first place and yet they still appoint themselves authorities over this debate.

It's even funnier that it's ONLY Title IX shit being affected by this, precisely the one area of sports that self-proclaimed feminists should care about protecting.

The end result of trans activism will be a full and measurable step back for women's rights in almost every legal arena to essentially where they were in the 80s.

If they ever had legitimacy. The oligarchy in Europe are strongly entrenched in old money and royal titles. The US oligarchy are closer to pirates that blow all their money within three generations and get over taken by other pirates. Euro oligarchs have had their boot to the common person's throat for longer than US has existed.
