Not the anon you responded to but be aware: At least the guy ain't flooding this board with propane crabs & indian poop (yet). He does tend to do it to other news boards over on 8chan. So if he goes bonkers with this stuff here I'm sure more people are bound to complain.

For those that don't like these threads just ignore them and post some comments on other threads.

Top UNICEF Children's Rights Campaigner Jailed for Rape of Teenage Boy Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 19:27:45 Id: 6001fb [Preview] No. 6700 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A leading children's rights campaigner, who helped governments around the world tackle the issue of abuse, has been jailed for raping a 13-year-old boy.

Former UNICEF consultant Peter Newell admitted three counts of indecent assault and two counts of buggery and was sentenced to six years, eight months in prison.

He has also been placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

The 'horrific' sexual assaults took place over a three-year period in the 1960s but have only come to light following a police investigation last year.

Newell, 77, of Wood Green, North London, who has led the campaign to ban the smacking of children in Britain, was sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court on January 3.

News of his imprisonment comes amidst warnings that predatory paedophiles are exploiting the aid sector after 125 British charity workers were accused of sexual abuse in 2017.

The scale of the problem has been laid bare by the scandal facing Oxfam whose staff have been accused of downloading pornography, using prostitutes in Haiti and preying on teenage volunteers in UK shops.

Along with his partner, Rachel Hodgkin, Newell helped prepare UNICEF's Implementation Handbook for the Convention on the Rights of the Child, launched in Geneva in January 1998.

The document, which provides a detailed reference of law, policy and practice aimed at promoting and protecting the rights of children, is still used by governments all over the globe.

Boom! Netanyahu Associates Raided, Arrested En Mass Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 18:26:18 Id: 1e4978 [Preview] No. 6697 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Police on Sunday said senior officials in the Bezeq phone company were arrested over the weekend in a graft probe involving close associates of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after a “dramatic” development was reported over the weekend in the case.

In a statement, police said “a number” of high-ranking officials in Israel’s national telephone company Bezeq were detained in the so-called Case 4000.

Two “very close” associates of the prime minister were also arrested, Hebrew-language media reported. The arrests came less than a week after police recommended indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in two separate graft probes.

“Following evidence discovered by the Israel Securities Authority in the investigation of the Bezeq case, which raised suspicions that additional offenses had been committed, a new investigation was initiated this morning by investigators from the authority and from Lahav 433,” said police on Sunday, referring to its anti-fraud unit.

“A number of suspects have been arrested as part of the investigation, including senior officials in the Bezeq group,” it added.

In a filing with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Sunday, Bezeq confirmed that senior officials at the Bezeq group had been arrested, as part of a new joint investigation between the Israel Securities Authority and the police.

A gag order has been imposed on other details of the investigation, the company said, adding that the firm has no further information on the nature and circumstances of the investigation.

In the case, police suspect that Shaul Elovitch, owner of the Walla news site and the controlling shareholder of Bezeq, swayed coverage of Netanyahu on the news site in exchange for benefits for Bezeq.

UN Chief Dr. Andrew Macleod: Oxfam and the Clinton Foundation Were Involved In Child Sex Trafficking Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 16:07:54 Id: a994fb [Preview] No. 6684 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A courageous whistleblower has gone on the record claiming that the United Nations, Oxfam, and The Clinton Foundation all traffic children and sell them for sex.

According to former UN Chief Dr Andrew Macleod, major international aid agencies are responsible for the sex trafficking of children in many of the countries they operate in.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the former UN Chief provides graphic detail to prove that charities around the world, including the Clinton Foundation, are staffed by a disproportionately high number of pedophiles and are guilty of sex trafficking.


He claims that the UK’s National Criminal Intelligence Service warned the charities 20 years ago that organised pedophilia was becoming rife the developing world. The National Criminal Intelligence Service said that pedophiles were working for international charities in order to gain access to children. The nature of the industry (supposedly providing humanitarian assistance) also provided the pedophiles with cover.

But according to MacLeod, these warnings were ignored, perhaps because by then it was already too late…

MacLeod’s words excoriate the aid industry: “Those who deny it are either lying through their teeth, or have their heads buried so far in the sand that their ignorance is deliberate.”

He further claims this problem has been “common knowledge in aid circles for almost 30 years“.

When working for the Red Cross in Yugoslavia, 1996, MacLeod heard of a nightclub “Florida 2000” in the Bosnian city of Zenica, where prostitutes were working from the age of 14.

Sweden Democrats Promise to Reduce Asylum Numbers to Zero and End Chain Migration Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 18:15:17 Id: cb9898 [Preview] No. 6696 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats (SD) have promised to reduce both asylum claims and chain migration — or ‘family reunification’ — to zero, and pledged to turn the migration board into a “remigration” board.

The election platform, released this week, claims that under an SD government Sweden would only take in asylum seekers from neighbouring countries. Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the party, said the SD policy, when compared to the Moderate Party, “is between 50,000 and 60,000 asylum and family immigrants per year,” Blekinge Läns Tidning reports.

The SD has also announced that if elected they will be focusing their efforts on deportations of both failed asylum seekers and those who do not wish to remain in Sweden.

On Twitter, the party wrote: “Many who live here do not want to [stay], but yearn to their homelands. We believe that for both their sake and that of our society, we must offer real opportunities to return.”

Populist Sweden Democrats Leader Vows to ‘Declare War’ on Rising Levels of Organised Crime


— Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) January 18, 2018

Another major pillar of the SD platform is the issue of law and order, especially in the heavily migrant populated no-go zones across the country where grenade attacks, shootings and sex attacks have become a major problem.

Earlier this year Åkesson promised to allow the Swedish military to work in a support role to help police officers deal with the escalating violence, which has seen police stations targeted by explosives and police vehicles attacked with grenades.

GOP Mega Donor Al Hoffman Turns Commie Pinko, Threatens To Cut All Funding For Protecting 2nd Amendment Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 18:08:09 Id: e6a1ed [Preview] No. 6694 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
GOP mega donor and real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. says he will not write another check to Republicans until that pass an “assault weapons” ban.

The New York Times reports that Hoffman made this announcement via an email that he sent to Jeb Bush and Gov. Rick Scott (R), among others. Hoffman was a major contributor to the George W. Bush presidential campaign. He also donated more than $1 million to a PAC supporting Jeb Bush’s failed presidential campaign bid.

Hoffman wrote, “For how many years now have we been doing this — having these experiences of terrorism, mass killings — and how many years has it been that nothing’s been done? It’s the end of the road for me.” He added, “I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons. Enough is enough!”

Hoffman did not define an “assault weapon,” did not say whether it is a set type of firearm or just any rifle that has the cosmetic features banned by Democrats from 1994-2004. It must be noted that the Democrat ban did not ban the rifles, only the cosmetic features. Is that what Hoffman has in mind?

Or is Hoffman focused on the semiautomatic action of “assault weapons.” If so, will semiautomatic handguns have to be banned to appease him as well?

This is utter insanity because the one major reason many Americans still vote Republican is to protect our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

Without this one major issue nearly all Republicans stand around, there would be NO incentive to even vote Republican!

ECB Governor, European Central Banker, Detained For Corruption Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 17:24:20 Id: f36001 [Preview] No. 6692 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Back in May 2016, Lithuania central bank head, and ECB governing council member, Vitas Vasiliauskas said that contrary to widespread perceptions of central planners as clueless hack economists who would not survive one day in the private sector and who can only inflate asset bubbles, then watch them burst and replace them with even bigger asset bubbles, central bankers are really "magic people."

“Markets say the ECB is done, their box is empty,” Vasiliauskas told Bloomberg in the spring of 2016. "But we are magic people. Each time we take something and give to the markets -- a rabbit out of the hat."

It now turns out they also appear to be corrupt, criminal people because on Saturday, Vasiliauskas' next door peer, Latvian central bank Governor, Ilmars Rimsevics who is also a member of the European Central Bank’s governing council, was detained by Latvia's anti-graft bureau, prompting calls for him to step aside to prevent harming the country’s financial sector.

In a statement to Reuters, Latvia’s Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis did not say why Rimsevics had been detained or what he was being investigated for. However, he attempted to reassure people that the economy was stable.

Rimsevics, 52, has worked at the Baltic nation’s central bank since graduating with an MBA from Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York, in 1992. After first taking the role of deputy governor that year, he was promoted to governor in 2001. He’s been a member of the ECB governing council since 2014, when Latvia adopted the euro.

Hardly encouraging confidence, the statement said that “there are no indications that would suggest threats to the financial system of Latvia,” Kucinskis said, confirming that it is very likely that there are copious threats to the financial system of Latvia, whose central banker may soon be in prison for graft.

As a result, finance minister Dana Reizniece-Ozola said Rimsevics should step aside for the time being to protect the Baltic country’s reputation.

“Given that the governor of the central bank is a symbol for every country, [then] I think that it would be sensible at this moment that Mr. Rimsevics, at least during the investigation, steps down,” Reizniece-Ozola told a news conference.

“Under the current circumstances... every day that Mr. Rimsevics remains in the post of governor of the central bank, the situation (for the reputation of Latvia’s financial system) substantially worsens,” she said.

Trump Blasts FBI For Not Taking Action Against Parkland Shooter, Too Focused On Russia Reader 02/18/2018 (Sun) 15:44:45 Id: a5e258 [Preview] No. 6683 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/6556

President Donald Trump has criticized the FBI after the agency disclosed that it failed to follow up on a detailed warning about the 19-year-old gunman who is charged with killing 17 people and wounding a dozen others at a Florida high school on Wednesday.

“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable,” Trump tweeted on Saturday night.

A “person close to Nikolas Cruz” contacted the FBI’s public access tipline on Jan. 5 to “report concerns about him,” the FBI said in a statement Friday. The caller provided information about “Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting,” the statement said.

Florida Governor Rick Scott said the FBI’s failure was “unacceptable” and called for the resignation of FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it,” Scott said in a statement. “The FBI director needs to resign.”


"They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!" the president said on Twitter.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was any collusion with anyone connected to the Trump campaign.

This. Personally I get the feeling that our government actually WANTS mass shootings to happen because they WANT to push their gun control agenda and expand their police state everywhere. It gives them all a big ego boost and self gratification at the expense of other lives. Sick, but that's what corruption is, its a form of societal cancer.

Apple's iPhone Source Code Leaks Out, Hackers Can Now Steal Everything You Have On Your iPhones Reader 02/09/2018 (Fri) 05:01:28 Id: fc765d [Preview] No. 6230 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Remember a few months ago when an Apple engineer casually posted an internal HomePod build that contain plenty of iPhone X secrets? That was Apple’s most significant leak in history… until this week when someone shared the source code for a key piece of the iPhone’s core software, called iBoot. That’s the code that runs on the iPhone before iOS gets started, and whose secrets Apple has never shared.

It’s unclear how it ended up on Github, but the iBoot source code leak is now being called the “biggest leak in history,” according to security researcher Jonathan Levin’s comments to Motherboard.

Levin, who wrote a series of books on iOS and macOS, says it’s a “huge deal” that the iBoot code got out. “iBoot is the one component Apple has been holding on to, still encrypting its 64-bit image,” Levin said. “And now it’s wide open in source code form.”

The code appears to be real according to his own reverse engineering. Even though the leaked iBoot code is from iOS 9, it may still be relevant to security researchers and hackers looking for holes in Apple’s mobile operating system. Apple has not confirmed the authenticity of the leak.

Any iBoot vulnerabilities discovered could lead to new jailbreaks, and even ways to decrypt the iPhone. The leak could also allow hackers to emulate iOS on non-Apple platforms.

Motherboard explains that vulnerabilities inside previous versions of iBoot allowed hackers to brute-force their way into older iPhone models by circumventing lock screen protection. However, that’s no longer possible on new devices that have a Secure Enclave Processor on board. 

The iBoot leak could bring back tethered jailbreaks too, the kind that require the phone to be connected to a computer when booting.

What’s interesting about the leak is that it was first posted on Reddit about a year ago, but it went largely unnoticed by most people. However, it’s likely that some people noticed the leak and have been working on discovering iOS vulnerabilities for months. On the other hand, Apple has surely made several improvements to its iBoot code since iOS 9, so it’s unclear what might come of this leak.

I have nearly the same, but it doesn't flip. Damn kids on their iPhones all the time. Try to date a young cunt, the bitch is constantly fucking around on her phone and can barely socialize because her entire life is raised on social media. I'm hoping for an atomic blast of high enough altitude it doesn't kill all of us, but destroys much of modern technology. The youth will have to read books and learn to talk without text. This containment of people who are awake on imageboards would cease. They too would have to communicate and finally form useful actual social movements.

Tanner crab season closes Reader 02/01/2018 (Thu) 02:26:37 Id: af927e [Preview] No. 5946 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Kayla Desroches/KMXT

The tanner crab fishery wrapped up last week.

Nat Nichols, Alaska Department of Fish and Game area management biologist for the Groundfish, Shellfish & Dive Fisheries, says the opening lasted roughly four days, which is about what they expected.

And as far participation goes, he says a total of 55 vessels registered, 43 of those on the east side and 12 on the southwest side.

“That’s a bit higher than we’ve seen in previous season with comparable GHLs, and I think that has to do with cod fishing being slow and just general enthusiasm for tanner crab fishing being that we haven’t had a season in four years.”

It’s the first time tanner has been open for crabbing in the Kodiak area since 2013, and it’s a derby, which means the vessels fished until they reached this year’s guideline harvest level of 400,000 pounds. Nichols says they pulled in about 422,000 pounds, a little over the GHL.

They keep track via radio.

Nichols explains the vessels can only lift their gear between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., and they touch base with managers after the close of the day.

“So then we call all the vessels on the radio and ask for a report for the day and all we’re looking for is the location, where you are, how many pots you lifted, and how many legal crab you retained, and that’s voluntary reporting, and we got excellent reporting out of the fleet.”

#7. Spam includes: "repeated messages or repeated images in one thread" And "bumping threads without contributing to discussion of that thread"

So if someone is posting a bunch of pictures of crabs to bump his crab news thread that doesn't count as spam? Should I post a bunch of firearms to my pro-gun thread to bump it too? Don't worry I won't. Just saying.
