1  Other / Politics & Society / Progressives tear down confederate monuments in New Orleans on: April 24, 2017, 01:42:56 PM
http://news.sky.com/story/tight-security-as-new-orleans-tears-down-confederate-statues-10849040

The first of four Confederate monuments - seen by many as offensive symbols of white supremacy - is being pulled down amid tight security in New Orleans.

Workers wore helmets and flak jackets as police watched from the top of a nearby car park during the operation.

The dismantling started at around 1.25am to avoid disruption from protesters, some of whom have made death threats, according to officials.

The city council voted 6-1 to remove the monuments, but legal battles to save them have dragged on for several years.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the first to come down - the Liberty Monument, an 1891 obelisk in honour of the Crescent City White League - was "the most offensive of the four".

"If there was ever a statue that needed to be taken down, it's that one," he said.

The League tried to overthrow a biracial government in the city after the American Civil War. The attempt failed, but white supremacists later took control of the state.

"All of what we will do in the next days will be designed to make sure that we protect everybody, that the workers are safe, the folks around the monuments are safe and that nobody gets hurt," added Mr Landrieu.

Three other statues will also be torn down which honour Confederate generals Robert E Lee and PGT Beauregard, and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Unease over Confederate symbols in the former slave-owning US south has increased since Dylann Roof shot dead nine people in a racist attack on a South Carolina church in 2015.

The state removed the Confederate flag from its statehouse in the weeks after the attack and other cities are also considering taking down monuments.

Supporters of the monuments say they are part of the region's history and should be left alone.

Civil War reenactor Robert Bonner, 63, one of those protesting in the early hours in New Orleans, said it was a "terrible thing".

"When you start removing the history of the city, you start losing money," he said.

"You start losing where you came from and where you've been."
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / GameCredits Speculation on: April 17, 2017, 02:17:25 AM
So what are your opinions on this? I decided to pick up some coins to hodl.

 I have been searching for coins with real usage demands, could we finally have an alt coin with real users?

It is being developed in partnership with Datcroft Games, who themselves have over 12,000,000 users, they are soon launching a mobile store which aims to compete with Google and Apple among others.

Several hundred games already registered for the store.

The coin itself is used to make purchases from the mobile store and in game, which you purchase via credit card, it fills sell orders on exchanges, no need for users to interact with a wallet, the users don't need to know squat about crypto currency.

Lower fees and more regular pay outs than google and apple for developers.

Professional marketing team targeting Asian markets.

I think this is a good moon ticket.

4  Other / Politics & Society / Brazils Purge, disarmed civilians being slaughtered in the streets. on: February 08, 2017, 02:17:07 AM
http://www.politicaloutsource.com/2017/02/death-toll-now-75-in-espirito-santo.html?m=1

After police went on strike in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo, chaos and lawlessness ensued that has now left over 75 people dead. That number has surged since our last death toll report, in which 52 people were dead yesterday morning. In less than 24 hours, over 23 people in Espirito Santo have been murdered.

The Vitoria police union, a city in Espirito Santo, told Political Outsource on Tuesday that there have been at least 75 murders since the start of the strike late Saturday evening. That number is extremely high, compared to just four in the month of January.

An estimated 80 car hijackings occured in Espirito Santo, Brazil on Monday alone.

Brazil responded to the chaos, which has included looting, rape, pillaging, and murder, by sending in military troops. Over 23 assailants have been arrested, but murder and crime rates continue to surge entering the third day of what some Brazilian residents have compared to a real life "Purge".

"I havent left my house in days," A resident of Espirito Santo told Political Outsource. "My parents have been inside for two days, we don't know what to do."

A resident living in the city of Vitoria emailed us, detailing the dangerous conditions Brazilians are experiencing right now. The email told us that schools, banks, or smaller hospitals were closed, and public transportation has been suspended following the riots that set ablaze dozens of buses, leaving many injured and some dead. The emailer, Luciana Fava, told Political Outsource that the chaos is being broadcasted on local television, however, no mainstream media has picked up on the story since it's beginning on Saturday.

"I am not sure how people are to go on with their lives like this." Fava told Political Outsource.

Yesterday, police reports obtained by Political Outsource showed that from over 27 people alone were killed in just eight hours. As the death toll continues to rise, so does the heinous crime. Thousands of people have been robbed at gun point since the chaos began, where armed thugs and assailants have hijacked cars, stolen money and jewelry, and even stealing buses. The video below shows three men hijacking a persons car at gun point, then quickly speeding off.

Dozens of Brazilian citizens have reached out to Political Outsource, pleading for more coverage on the chaotic events unfolding in the state of Espirito Santo. No major media outlet has picked up on the story, leaving many questioning why; are they afraid of exposing what a gun-restricted state could turn in to without the help of police? One Espirito Santo resident talked exclusively with Political Outsource on how he believes not having the ability to own a firearm allowed this lawlessness to spread so quickly, leaving over 75 people dead in just a few days.

"Nobody has guns," Alexander Gonzalez told Political Outsource in a phone interview. "Buying a basic handgun for protection requires a pile of paperwork to be filled out, then you have to be approved by the government, which most people aren't! And even if you go through all the paperwork, meet all the requirements, and are approved, the guns themselves cost thousands of dollars. Nobody has that kind of time, or money, here in Brazil. It's totally controlled."

In another interview conducted by Political Outsource, a woman whose son was shot and killed while walking the streets Monday night, told us; "The only people that have guns in this country anymore are people getting them illegally."

The issue of gun control has risen to an extreme concern following the events in Brazil, where armed thugs and assailants are shooting at bystanders and passerby's for no reason. Many of the deaths compiled in Espirito Santo have been cold blooded, where assailants are simply shooting anybody that is outside. A family of three told Political Outsource they haven't gone outside in two days, fearful of what may happen if they do.

"Two days. We've been hiding inside our home for two days," A man told Political Outsource in a phone interview. "I had to miss work, but it's not worth the risk going outside right now. We are beginning to run low on food and water, but there's no way to fix that. We can't go outside, all we can do now is hope the army takes care of it quick enough."

When asked if he believed he would go outside, to his job and buy supplies, if he had access to a firearm for protection, there was a small pause. Silence. Then, an answer: "Yes."

However, not all Brazilians share the same belief on arming their citizens. One women in the city of Vitoria told us that "arming citizens right now would only make things worse," and blames the government for allowing guns to be bought in the first place.

"If you really want a gun, you can get a gun." says a woman, asking go by the name of Sanchez. We asked her about the lengthy paperwork and requirements other Brazilians have told us about. "Sure, there's a lot of stuff to go through, but like I said; if you want a gun, you can get a gun. I mean, where seeing that right now. I don't blame the people for this, I blame the government for allowing it to happen. Guns shouldn't be sold period."

In a poll conducted by Political Outsource, we asked: "Do you think Brazil should allow their citizens to arm themselves following these recent events?". 86% of votes said "yes", while 14% said "no".

While the chaos continues, armed thugs and assailants harass, rob, plunder, and kill just about anyone and everyone in their sight. While gun control has risen to a great concern for both Brazilians and the people of the world watching things unfold, another issue has come to light: Why isn't the mainstream media reporting on this? Political Outsource was the first to break this story after we received a tip from one of our southern informants. Since then, a few other media outlets have picked up on the chaos, including the Daily Mail, Mirro.co.uk, The Sun, and even Rueters and BBC. However, many are questioning why the top dogs like CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and NY Times, who usually are the first on scene to just about everything, pushing their way through the lines and publishing stories first even if they're false, are yet no where to be found on one of the biggest outbreaks and purges the world may has ever seen. As the death toll climbs to over 75 in just three days, the mainstream media is silent - not a whisper.

When did they become so feminized? How can it be reversed? I don't think the majority can be saved, is this how the west falls, as feminized, feeble, weak, waddling sacks of meat with diabetes and brittle skeletons being over run by barbarians?
