The Cop-Attacking Chilean Dog Who Became a Worldwide Symbol of Protest

The recent uprising in Chile is full of references to the beloved Negro Matapacos, who accompanied protestors for many years. As his legend spreads, so too do images of the good boy.

The streets of #Santiago are once again alive with the spirit of #revolution. For weeks now, #working-class Chileans have occupied national monuments, blocked major intersections, and torched subway cars in protest of widespread #inequality. They desire full #... Show more...
It's the same tactic over and over and over again, which is that everyone is on the take, everyone has a motive, and you can't believe anything anybody says except for me.
From the "fake news media" to Vindman, to "12 angry Democtats and Bob Mueller", and now it's the whistleblower, [it's the] same over and over again.
Avoid the facts, avoid the actual facts at hand. It's all about motive. They're all bad guys. Trust only me.

Data Dictatorships: The Arms Race to Hack Humankind by Borja Moya - borjamoya.com

#surveillance #dictatorship #freebook

Forget about fake news, election interferences and being watched on the Internet. Instead, let’s dig beneath every layer and state straight-out what the hell is going on, but few dare to say: Liberal democracy is going to die. Data is becoming the raw materialization of power, and this is making dictatorships more efficient than ever before.

Former South Korean president Chun Doo-hwan on trial before court for massacre of Gwangju

The first hearing in Chun’s trial was held on Mar. 11 in Room No. 201 of the Gwangju District Court. The decision that the court must make is whether Chun was guilty of defaming the deceased when he bashed Cho, who testified that he witnessed a helicopter attack on civilians during the Gwangju Uprising, as a “shameless liar” in a memoir published in 2017.

But this trial isn’t merely about determining whether the charges of defamation against Chun will stick. This whole time, Chun and other members of the military junta have ferociously denied the testimony by Cho and groups representing victims of the Gwangju Uprising that helicopters fired on protesters between 1 and 3 pm on May 21, 1980.

Between 1 and 5 pm on May 21, paratroopers opened fire at Geumnam Street, near the former South Jeolla Provincial Office, killing 34 civilians, but it has never been determined who gave the order to fire. In 2007, the MND’s fact-find... Show more...

The most important elections in the world took place today

The North elects its legislators every five years in events similar to general elections for lawmakers here. But each constituency has a sole candidate and voters can only vote for or against.

And those who dared to vote against were immediately deported into a working camp, apparently.

On Saturday, North Korea’s state-run newspaper the Rodong Sinmun reported that Kim had stressed the importance of economic development, breaking his silence for the first time since his summit with US President Donald Drumpf in Hanoi in February, in which the two leaders failed to strike an accord on denuclearization or the lifting of economic sanctions.

In the 2014 election, 687 legislators were elected, replacing about 55 percent of the Supreme People’s Assembly, according to data from the Unification Ministry here. The KCNA reported that the turnout in 2014 was 99.97 percent, and 100 percent of the votes were in favor of listed candidates.

Trump fears the Mueller report

In a speech that lasted more than two hours — his longest since taking office two years ago — Drumpf also vented about Democrats, a proposed “green new deal,” illegal immigrants and criticism of his North Korea summit, while voicing optimism about his own re-election prospects in 2020.

You see - the only time he is able to hold a speech of an appropriate length (meaning a speech that lasts as long as I expect a real president to be like) is when he starts a tirade about someone he clearly dislikes. Otherwise, he can't hold a speech that is about one hour long and doesn't include anything that has to be fact-checked before or after.

“We’re waiting for a report by people who weren’t elected,” Drumpf said of the Mueller report, which is widely expected to be handed over to Attorney General William Barr in the coming days.

That's because a special counsel is not elected but employed by the DOJ. And you chose your attorney general, who employs a deputy. Idiot.... Show more...

Turkey locks out German journalists

The Turkish decision means neither reporter can continue to work in Turkey. The 57-year-old Brase has headed ZDF's Istanbul bureau since January 2018. The 55-year-old Seibert has been accredited continuously in Turkey for the last 22 years.

Press cards issued by Turkey expire each December and journalists need to reapply for accreditation. Some German reporters have received their cards but others are still waiting. The cards are considered work permits and are also necessary for getting a residence permit.

Reporters Without Borders places Turkey 157th on its list of 180 countries ranked for press freedom.

Belarussian dictator tells media that he told his people to oppose Russian despot

During a marathon meeting with journalists and analysts, Lukashenko said if Belarusians were asked in a referendum, "98 percent would vote against the unification of the two countries -- or what many in Russia see as Belarus becoming part of Russia."

Such a move could possibly extend Putin's time in power when his fourth presidential term ends in 2024 by making him the head of a new "unified" state including Belarus.

Addressing a Russian journalist, Lukashenko demanded that Moscow stop calling Belarusians "freeloaders."

Egypt removes term limit for president

Egypt parliament overwhelmingly approves constitutional changes to remove term limits for President el-Sissi until 2034.

This is all the Associated Press has written about it. But as anyone can see all around the world, a presideny without term limits will always lead into authoritarianism because it allows one president to run as often as he or she wishes to. It leaves no limit to it, so that a change can hardly be made. The president's party can simply run with the same individual and a demographically corrupted country (at the moment, countries full of generians) will vote for this party because they always did so.

What Can a President Do During a State of Emergency? - The Atlantic

Unknown to most Americans, a parallel legal regime allows the president to sidestep many of the constraints that normally apply. The moment the president declares a “national emergency”—a decision that is entirely within his discretion—more than 100 special provisions become available to him. While many of these tee up reasonable responses to genuine emergencies, some appear dangerously suited to a leader bent on amassing or retaining power. For instance, the president can, with the flick of his pen, activate laws allowing him to shut down many kinds of electronic communications inside the United States or freeze Americans’ bank accounts. Other powers are available even without a declaration of emergency, including laws that allow the president to deploy troops inside the country to subdue domestic unrest.
