Hallo #UK?!
Noch seid Ihr Mitglied der #EU.
Wie also kann es sein, daß Ihr #Assange an ein Land ausliefern wollt, wo ihm
175 Jahre Haft, vermutlich in Isolation und die Gefahr der Folter drohen für das Aufdecken von #US-Kriegsverbrechen?
Bedeuten Menschenrechte noch irgendetwas?

Ich finde es ja immer wieder schade, dass sich #XMPP nicht als DER Messenger durchgesetzt hat... aus technisch funktionaler Sicht, also aus meiner als Anwender ist XMPP mittlerweile besser als diese ganzen mobilen Messenger und dennoch nutzen die Menschen lieber diese. Schlechter, wahrscheinlich unsicherer, zentralisiert, weniger Funktionen, Beschränkungen und nicht quelloffen, aber macht mal weiter so, irgendwann dreht dann jemand diese Messenger ab oder schaltet die Verschlüsselung mit Hintertüre ein.

#WhatsApp und #Signal sind #US Unternehmen, wenn #Trump nicht mehr möchte, dass die Welt darüber sicher kommuniziert, dann wird er das einfach umsetzen.

Keine Ahnung wo die ganzen anderen Messenger #Telegram, #Viber oder wie sie alle heißen her kommen, aber es sind immer Einzelunternehmen die einem nationalen Rechtssystem unterworfen sind, wohingegen jeder (wirklich jeder!) einen eigenen XMPP Server betreiben kann und einen Client seiner Wahl nutzen kann. Diese Clients sind oft Open Source (#OSS) und nicht an bestimmte Länder gebunden, der Code kann in jedem Land verbreitet und weiterentwickelt werden.

 

After military exercise to welcome returned parents, school principal hires pole dancer

“The District Education Bureau believes that it is not appropriate to perform pole dancing for children in kindergartens,” it pointed out.
Seriously, it isn't? I thought this was completely appropriate to do! I really can't understand what is all the fuss about hiring a pole dancer to welcome the returned parents who continued to bring their children to this kindergarten. I mean, they should be given something too in return to the fees they might pay to bring their children there.
But seriously, what is wrong with this principal, what did she think about when she hired a pole dancer for this event? Did she think it would be anything funny? Or did she just want to raise some attention for her kindergarten?
He said that he and his wife had already had concerns about the kindergarten before it closed for the summer, when the children had been subjected to ten days of military “activities” that included displays of machine guns and mortars at the door.
Yeah, this might have surprised some of the parents whose children participated in these exercises, but I mean... No, I don't have anything more to say about this. This is completely freaked out.
“Pole dancing is by nature sexy and flirtatious, and by that measure, it is for the eyes of adults, not young children,” said an anonymous user on Weibo, a popular Twitter-like microblog in China, reported Reuters.
That's why you would not call pole dancing just "dancing," like in a waltz, or a Charleston. I wouldn't even be too sure about bellydancing, but this is up to the artist, and not me.

Deranged Donald wishes troops "Happy Memorial Day" because he apparently doesn't know what happened on this day in American history

“I have to wish you all a very happy Memorial Day,” Drumpf said. “On this Memorial Day evening in the United States, Americans are concluding a sacred day of remembrance, reflection and prayer.”
You know he either isn't fluent in his mother tongue, or he really doesn't feel like he wants to "wish" his own country's soldiers a "happy Memorial Day," when he says that he has to.
Before appearing on the USS Wasp, Drumpf and first lady Melania Drumpf visited a Japanese destroyer, the J.S. Kaga, docked nearby. Standing alongside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Drumpf delivered the same “happy Memorial Day” message to the Japanese forces.
As an American, you might be surprised that he tells the Japanese army a happy Memorial Day, but in Donnie's world, this is totally fine and doesn't imply any lack of knowledge in history.
The visit also allowed Drumpf and Abe to spend hours of time together on the golf course, at a sumo wrestling match and in meetings discussing trade, North Korea’s nuclear program, Iran and other bilateral issues.

Local billionaire to pay all Morehouse students' loan debts

The billionaire businessman, who received an honorary degree from the historically black school, surprised the nearly 400 graduating seniors by announcing his family would provide a grant to pay off student debt for the entire Class of 2019.
Now this is... Unbelievable, a true philanthropist, I must admit. No further comment on this.

Recht interessanter Artikel über den Iran und die aktuelle Situation und Haltung der USA und Europa
Was fordert der Iran von der EU?

Es klingt wie ein Ultimatum: Binnen zwei Monaten soll die EU den Iran aus seiner wirtschaftlichen Isolation befreien. Ansonsten will das Land das Atomabkommen teilweise aussetzen. Doch dabei geht es nicht nur um Handel.

Das Ende des Völkerrechts - Makroskop

Die Krise in #Venezuela spitzt sich weiter zu. Die Mehrheit der #EU - Staaten folgen der #US -Linie – Maduro sei illegitim, Guaidó legitim. Doch mit #Rechtstaatlichkeit und den Grundsätzen des #Völkerrecht es hat das wenig zu tun.

Mehrere EU-Staaten, darunter #Deutschland, fordern Ende Januar Nicolás Maduro in einem #Ultimatum auf, innerhalb acht Tagen neue Präsidentschaftswahlen einzuleiten. Nachdem Maduro dies wie zu erwarten zurückweist, erkennen 19 EU-Staaten Juan Guaidó als Interimspräsidenten Venezuelas an. Damit folgen sie dem Beispiel Donald Trumps und seinem Hauptargument, Maduro sei ein illegitimer Präsident, ein Diktator, Guaidó jedoch legitim. Auch das Europarlament stimmt mehrheitlich für Guaidó...

 

Refusal to reveal sources leads to armed police invading his home

Two weeks before, police investigators showed up at his home to ask him, politely he says, to identify the source who provided him with a confidential police report about the February death of the city’s public defender, Jeff Adachi.
And this is exactly why some sources prefer to stay anonymous, therefore safely able to tell the reporter eveything they know: They fear that the police could go after them, and even captivate them for their own investigations. Reporters don't necessarily work together with the police, and since they don't like to cooperate with the cops, they don't identify. Reporters, on the other hand, seem to bear the risk of being persecuted if they protect their source's anonymity. Brave new world has reached the civilised world.
He works every night from about 10pm to 6am, where he chases news, like car crashes, crime scenes, disasters, weather stories, the release of a new video game – “anything that happens overnight”, he says – and then sells his services and materials he gathers to local stations for their morning broadcasts.

Mr Carmody said he had never been pressured by law enforcement to give up a source before in 29 years of reporting, mentioning, as an example the leaked photographs from San Francisco’s public transportation agency he recently acquired that exposed a safety issue with some trains.

School enforces dress code on parents too

The ban forbids all people visiting the school from wearing revealing and sagging clothing, as well as pyjamas, hair rollers, satin caps, and bonnets. Also on the list are shower caps, short dresses, lingerie, and other clothing the schools have deemed inappropriate for the educational space.
I wonder who ever tried to enter their school wearing pyjamas or in lingerie only. I mean, this would be really strange to encounter at a school...
"To prepare our children and let them know daily, the appropriate attire they are supposed to wear when entering a building, going somewhere, applying for a job, or visiting someone outside of the home setting, I am going to enforce these guidelines on a daily basis at Madison High School. We are preparing our children for the future and it begins here," Principal Outley Brown said in a letter to the Parents and all guests of the school.

Advertisement boycott causes life-threatening cuts for right-winged pundit Breitbart

In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".
Teehee...
“This group called Sleeping Giants, a group of tech executives, they literally stripped out, they went and took 35 exchanges that sell the ads … 31 went away. So the ad revenues dropped like 90 per cent,” said Mr Bannon, who resigned as executive chairman of Breitbart six months before the footage was allegedly taken.
Teehee...
Asked how Breitbart was generating revenues, Mr Bannon said it was all generated by advertising. “I’m saying it’s in touch financial shape,” he added.

Small announcement on my content and where to find it


Hello everyone! As you may have not noticed, some of the articles I don't share here don't appear on this platform. So far, so obvious - and indeed, there is content that doesn't appear here but which I have shared, though. These are articles I read after I go offline here and share somewhere else, namely on my two channels across, on Telegram. It's not a lot, yet an undefined amount that of course depends on what reaches my eyes and catches my interest. Also, it might happen more often in the near future when I will be more busy, thus seldom online on the Diaspora since I found the mobile application merely obnoxious, since it usually logs you out after a few days of absence, and since the speed of its owrk is rather slow. Of course I might as well log in via my browser, but na... Not that much of importance to me. Instead, I would like to recommend you my two channels on Telegram:
  • Politics & Economics:
    My main content, usually the US news and politics, also the content that relatively makes up most of the traffic on this profile. If you like to read it, then follow up there.
  • Polike im D-A-CH Raum
    Betrifft in etwa die wenigen Inhalte, die den deutschsprachigen Raum anbelangen, doch wer es gerne hier liest, kann auch gerne diesem Kanal folgen. Bloß keine falsche Scheu. :-)
I am not going to discuss the privacy features Telegram might offer to its users or not, this is not of my interest, it's all up to you what you discuss on this platform and which information you present to anyone who is able to find you, depending on your prvacy measurements. I use this to talk with friends and host my two channels which are solely about sharing the news. We don't need to communicate via this platform, this too is up to you. I just want to encourage you to join my channel and therefore receive a daily overdose of the news of around the world at maximum, but around the US and its peers at the least.

Thanks a lot for your interest or disinterest, I mutually appreciate. :-)

PS: If you feel interested in submitting any news I may have overseen, you can either tell me via the DM system of the Diaspora, or via Telegram, although I am more likely to see it via Telegram than via Diaspora's DM system. Just saying.

Possession and medical useo f marijuana could soon be legal in WI


"As a cancer survivor, I know the side effects of a major illness can make everyday tasks a challenge,” the governor said. “People shouldn't be treated as criminals for accessing a desperately-needed medication that can alleviate their suffering."

This specific language was established to prevent law enforcement agencies in the state from creating their own ordinances or penalties.

#US #Citizens Sue Border Patrol Agent Who Detained Them for Speaking Spanish - Hide Out Now

"So it is illegal to speak Spanish in #Montana?" Ana Suda asked Border Patrol Agent Paul O'Neal after he detained her and her friend Mimi Hernandez at a convenience store in Havre, a small town near the border with Canada, on a Wednesday evening last May. "Well, ma'am," O'Neal replied, "it's not illegal. It's just very unheard of up here." And that, to his mind, provided reasonable suspicion that the two women, both U.S. citizens and Havre residents, were in the country illegally, justifying a 40-minute detention while he investigated their immigration status...
