God damn, how many times did they tell her before?

She continued to argue with him after he told her to sit down and STFU.  She kept talking back and she got blasted.  I don't speak Russian so that's about all I could tell from the interaction.

Oh yeah, there's a show I occasionally watch on youtube that's about to talk about that in a few minutes, actually (Midnight's Edge).  I've been wondering what would happen on the next episode of the Ezra saga.. the Ezra Show has been on hiatus for a while in the news.....but now here we are with new material, and it's great.

I didn't know this about myself until watching the Alex Jones Sandy Hook trial, but I'd be 100% fine with just shooting anyone who believed that Sandy Hook false flag shit square in the head and dumping them in a hole. It's strange how I knew about Sandy Hook "truthers" all this time, but never held this opinion until now. Seeing the comedy that is these Infowars staff fools on the stand makes me believe anyone who follows what they say on this incident isn't good for society anyway.

Yeah, there's similar opinions on social media.

 

 

 

Apple Bends the Knee, Warning Suppliers Shipping from Taiwan to Strictly Obey China’s Label Demands After Pelosi Visit

With China’s communist government still acting very prickly in the wake of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan, Apple is urging its suppliers to make sure to label any shipments from Taiwan to China in strict compliance with the Chinese customs regulations regarding how the island is named.

It’s a critical time for Apple, as it prepares to launch the next generation of iPhones this fall, and suppliers are currently assembling various components for the new smartphones.

According to a report by Nikkei Asia, Pelosi’s visit “stoked fears of rising trade barriers,” making Apple nervous about “possible disruptions” if crucial shipments are delayed or even blocked in customs due to a failure to appease China’s labelling demands:

Quote

 

Apple told suppliers on Friday that China has started strictly enforcing a long-standing rule that Taiwanese-made parts and components must be labeled as being made either in “Taiwan, China” or “Chinese Taipei,” sources familiar with the matter told Nikkei Asia, language that indicates the island is part of China…

Using the phrase “Made in Taiwan” on any import declaration forms, documents or cartons could cause shipments to be held and checked by Chinese customs, the sources added. Penalties for violating such a rule is a fine of up to 4,000 yuan ($592) or, in the worst-case scenario, the shipment being rejected, one of the sources said.

This presents a dilemma for suppliers who need to ship materials, components or parts from Taiwan to China, however, as the democratically governed island also requests that all exports be labeled with product of origin, which means they must carry the words “Taiwan” or “Republic of China,” the island’s official name, according to suppliers and logistics companies.

 

 

It’s not a hypothetical problem, but rather an issue that is already happening. Shipments from Taiwan to facilities operated by Pegatron, an iPhone assembler, in Suzhou, China were “held for review” Thursday while Chinese officials inspected the import declaration forms and cartons to determine if they were labeled “Taiwan” or “Republic of China,” Nikkei Asia reported.

A senior Pegatron executive was among several Taiwanese chip industry corporate leaders who attended the lunch with Pelosi that was hosted by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen Wednesday, the report noted, perhaps highlighting another reason the company found itself under increased scrutiny.

Old slang terms and phrases that should come back...

"...come up shawt" - you had inadequate funds or were unable to successfully do something or prevail. e.g.--"haha he tried fighting Jason Voorhees and came up shawt."

"...she got that rotisserie." - Rotisserie meaning a nice thick ass/curves.

"...that was slaw." -- something that is lame, undesirable, bad, disappointing. e.g.-- "Mannn I was looking forward to Anthem... game was slaw." (edit---I've also heard this interchangeable with "slop")

"Fresh" - descriptive of clothing and fashion that is very nice/appealing... basically the outfit looks damn good.

Stylin' & Profilin -  from the great Ric Flair himself, of course

Bonus from my parents' generation---"BOOGA WOLF"! Hahaha it cracked me up the first time I heard my Dad explain this... this was the usual term to describe ugly girls...e.g.--"so how was the party? I couldn't get there.." "Mannn it was nothin' but booga wolves in there. 😞 "

Do you think with this Alex Jones case that we might see grifters get scared and diminish their presence?

 

"Speech is free but lies you have to pay for."

 

It's the one thing I hate the most about this era of political discourse. I scroll through my Facebook feed once a month and it's always an argument of "one guy with no facts vs one guy with half the facts he got from a hyperpartisan source" lol

Personally I'm a-ok that if you're going to tell a big ass lie that could people's lives in jeopardy as well as cause mass grief especially if you're a figure of prominence then I'm perfectly fine with people suing you.  And I'm not talking about someone going out there and just saying a small lie or something that was said in ignorance.  I'm talking about bold face gas lighting bullshit.  If those people started losing money on that garbage then there would definitely be less people willing to go out and say that dumb stuff or even let that stuff fly around them.  Just ask Fox News whenever someone tries to come on their platform and say the election was stolen now.    It's the perfect check to this stuff and makes people literally put their money where there mouth is.

Grifters won't fall back due to Alex unless the punitive damages here are sky high.

 

For one, in this case, Alex and his fans are directly responsible for the suffering endured by the SH parents. Almost everything else in the grifter space (like the effect Fox News has) is disconnected from the damage done just enough to be "legal, but wrong". So, there's no legal basis to press other people doing Alex Jones type stuff unless they directly harm someone.

 

For two, grifters who didn't marry into/inherit money are going to grift because they have no other options. Can you imagine a Steven Crowder or a Candace Owens succeeding at anything else and making as much money? Look up Steven Crowder's stand up "comedy" if you dare, and you'll see he has no shot outside of this shit. So, they won't stop. They'll just be more careful.

Idk how much money Jones has, or is insured for.

 

But the punitive damages are north of $45 million, and Jones is reportedly facing two more similar lawsuits from other Sandyhook families.

 

That said, grifters always gonna grift.  The smarter ones will probably indemnify themselves by framing their bullshit more carefully though.

Snickers Candy Company Apologizes to Communist China for Calling Taiwan a Country

The company, Mars Wrigley, reportedly faced backlash from Chinese social media users after promoting a limited edition Snickers bar that was said to only be available in the “countries” of Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, Reuters reported.

Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times reported that the company “apologized for marking Taiwan island as a country, saying its local team has verified & aligned the official site and social media accounts to ensure accurate content.”

“Snickers owner Mars Wrigley said it respects China’s [national] sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the Global Times tweeted.

 

People are not happy with Mars
