    The latest Fox News poll shows Trump losing to every Democratic frontrunner - including Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris. 52% of voters said they would support Biden if the 2020 election were held today to 38% who said they'd support Trump. 48% would support Sanders, 46% would support Warren, and 42% would support Harris, while 40% would support Trump. (Fox News / Newsweek) Hey Cav - it's Fox news, so it must be true!

    But the thought pile has moved, the speech curve is catching up, but won't till after the election. _ If these bold speakers are wrong about where the Thought Pile is, they often end up in trouble, penalized by the market. But when they’re right, they’re handsomely rewarded. They become iconic stand-up comedians, best-selling authors, and election-sweeping politicians. One example that pops to mind is Obama being like, “Yeah duh I smoked pot. Smoking pot is fun.” The widespread assumption at the time was that saying something like that would sink a politician (which is why a few election cycles earlier, Clinton pretended he never inhaled)—but Obama was savvy enough to see that the Thought Pile had shifted and the Speech Curve was lagging behind. And it turned out to be a boost for his popularity. Saying what everyone is thinking but not saying is a form of leadership. It formalizes a Thought Pile shift that has already happened, clearing the way for everyone else to start saying those things too. A few bold speakers with big platforms are usually all it takes for the whole Speech Curve to shift and realign with the Thought Pile. https://waitbutwhy.com * note: the colours on this graphic do not represent any political view, they are just there to be pretty, so the red, green and the blue are not GOP and Dems or any one else.

    What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

    Get Carter 1971 Another Michael Caine movie. Very good. Some observations. The nudity reveals that the girlies didn't know about preternatural youth, silicone implants and muscle tone, back then. And if you've seen any of Guy Ritchie's films, like "lock stock and two smoking barrels", you'll understand that this movie, is English, gritty, and makes Guy Ritchie's efforts, look like, amateur hour.

    Strife in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong protests: Tear gas strikes the heart of the city as people defy extradition law Protesters flooding downtown Hong Kong to stop the Government's proposed extradition law effectively presented the city's leaders with an ultimatum: back down, or risk violent clashes that could be worse than the Occupy movement in 2014. Thousands of demonstrators gathered in the heart of the financial hub overnight, and some battled with riot police to prevent lawmakers from debating the bill. Overwhelmingly young, many protesters wore surgical masks to hide their identities and plastic goggles to ward off pepper spray, which police fired sporadically throughout the day, along with tear gas, rubber bullets and bean-bag rounds. "This is the end game for Hong Kong, it is a matter of life or death. That's why I come," Rocky Chang, a 59-year-old professor, told Reuters news agency. "This is an evil law." Hong Kong's Government, led by Chief Executive Carrie Lam, says it has no intention of giving in to the protesters' key demand: scrapping the proposed law that would allow criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China, among other places. Lam has argued the bill is a necessary measure to update the city's rules for dealing with individuals facing criminal charges elsewhere. "I've never felt guilty because of this," she said in an interview with local broadcaster TVB, her voice cracking and her eyes appearing to well up as she insisted she would never betray Hong Kong..... https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12239960 Oooer!

    I've not seen this Banksy before ::
  14. By Teeranai Charuvastra, Staff Reporter - September 10, 2019 11:42 am http://www.khaosodenglish.com/politics/2019/09/10/thammanat-threatens-to-sue-aussie-paper-for-drug-allegation/ Agriculture and Cooperative Assistant Minister Thammanat Prompao, right, joins a "cowboy night" with fellow government officials in Korat on July 21, 2019. BANGKOK — Top government officials on Tuesday kept a tight lip when questioned about recent allegations that an assistant cabinet member spent four years in an Australian jail for drug trafficking. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha would not answer media questions when he arrived at Government House today. The assistant minister at the center of the scandal, Thammanat Prompao, also refused to comment, though he said yesterday he’s planning to sue an Australian newspaper for publishing the claim. In an interview with BBC Thai, agriculture assistant minister Thammanat also said he has “already explained” everything about the case. Read: Minister Won’t Explain Heroin Conviction, Jail Time in Australia An investigative report by the Sydney Morning Herald said Thammanat was sentenced to jail for four years in 1993 over a heroin trafficking conviction. Thammanat previously told local media he served only eight months in jail and was paroled for community service. Thammanat, whose past careers include a military post, has maintained he was not directly involved in the crime, a claim disputed in detail by the Herald. The minister dismissed questions from reporters with a wave before entering Government House for a weekly meeting. The allegation is the latest gaffe to hit the government coalition since coming to power in July. Thai laws bar those convicted of narcotics offenses from serving in the cabinet, but a government official has suggested the restriction is not applicable to politicians prosecuted by foreign courts. When questioned about the controversy today, PM Prayuth did not give a reply. He later said the media should publish negative news less frequently. “You often ask questions that turn my mood sour,” the prime minister said as he was touring an exhibition about China’s famed terracotta warriors. Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam and Interior Affairs Minister Anupong Paochinda said it’s up to Thammanat to explain himself to the public. --- there y'go surely the best response to this is,: "yes I did it, but I'm reformed and a good boy now, devoted to the service of the people" ?
  15. Just when we clever clogs computer fellas think we know every thing :: Apple has issued a response to the reports of a vulnerability in its iOS operating system, saying the attack affected fewer than a dozen websites that focus on content related to the Uighur community. Google researchers found that a set of websites hacked in February were being used to attack iPhones, infecting them with malware. The iPhone malware implant, which has not been given a name, was able to escape the iOS sandbox and run as root, which meant it has bypassed the security mechanisms of iOS and has the highest level of privileges. It was capable of stealing: All keychains, Photos, SMS and email messages, Contacts, notes, and recordings, It can retrieve the full call history and is capable of doing real-time monitoring of the device location. It also includes the capability to obtain the unencrypted chat transcripts from a number of major end-to-end encrypted messaging clients, including Messages, Whatsapp, and Telegram. This means that if you’re infected, all your encrypted messages are not only collected by the attacker, but they’re transferred in clear-text across the Internet. https://securitybrief.co.nz/story/apple-issues-clarification-on-extent-of-ios-malware-infection ___ Worth a read, someone, presumably the Chinese, can fuck with you, from a website.

    Lao activist vanishes in Bangkok

    And another reason not to engage with the Lao authorities :: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1750409/no-proof-in-jailing-of-engineer-in-laos No proof' in jailing of engineer in Laos PUBLISHED : 15 SEP 2019 AT 06:41 NEWSPAPER SECTION: NEWS WRITER: ANUCHA CHAROENPO Kittidet (right): Thailand won't help him Lawyers are calling for the immediate release of a Thai engineer who has been detained in a Lao detention centre for over 10 months after being accused of causing about 1.7 million baht in damages to a Lao company's business. Kittidet Latthi, 48, was arrested and detained last October in Vientiane. His lawyers say the statutory period of his detention has now expired. Peerapat Thongteerasakul, a lawyer for Mr Kittidet, said Lao police have been unable to provide the engineer's legal team with clear evidence to substantiate the charge that his client had acted illegally as accused. "The investigation into Mr Kittidet's case has taken over 10 months, but they [the Lao police] can't provide evidence to confirm Mr Kittidet did anything illegal. He should be released as quickly as possible," said Mr Peerapat. He added that he had appointed a Lao lawyer to act on his behalf in defending Mr Kittidet and provide him with legal advice. The Lao lawyer informed him the statutory period of Mr Kittidet's detention expired on Feb 24, and Lao authorities had not issued a warrant to extend Mr Kittidet's detention. This means his client should have been freed or granted bail if the authorities did not want to conduct a further investigation into the matter, he said. Mr Kittidet should have the right to a fair trial in Laos' justice system, he added. "The Lao laws should apply equally to all nationals, and he should be able to bring his dispute before a court. "He should not be detained illegally to compensate for damages that have not been proven," Mr Peerapat said. "Over the past months, the Lao lawyer has submitted letters to both Lao police and prosecutors, calling for justice and fair treatment of Mr Kittidet. We have also asked them how much progress has been made in the investigation. "The Lao police told us they had forwarded the case to prosecutors for consideration, but all we know is that there is still no clear evidence or witnesses to substantiate the charge against Mr Kittidet," he said. "The damages to the business he was accused of harming were also not specified in the police case report that was sent to prosecutors." Mr Peerapat added the prosecutors informed the Lao lawyer that Mr Kittidet is a foreigner, and the company he worked for issued a letter to them, that he has caused 1.7 million baht in damages to the company's business. They decided not to release him on these grounds. If he fled, they would have to take responsibility. He said the Lao lawyer repeatedly asked prosecutors to provide him with the evidence and witnesses that would specifically support the allegations made against his client. He said the lawyer also questioned the prosecutors about what types of damages were involved. However, the prosecutors did not reply or issue an indictment against him. He went on to say that his Lao representative has also sought bail for his client, but has not received a response on that request either. Mr Kittidet was hired by the Lao company to work as an engineer in 2013. He was arrested on Oct 20 last year at a Lao immigration checkpoint in Vientiane while travelling back to Thailand. He is now being detained at Phon Tong detention centre in Vientiane. His wife, Khwanta, 47, a native of Buri Ram's Nang Rong district, has been travelling between Laos and Thailand to visit her husband at the centre throughout his 10-month detention. "I still don't know why my husband is being detained. What is the particular offence that he committed? We miss him so much and we worry about his safety," Ms Khwanta told the Bangkok Post. She said she has spent several million baht on lawyers' fees and travel between the two countries. "How much more money will we have to spend in the future? My husband is the main earner in the household. "If the case remains unsolved and he is not released shortly, my family will be in trouble," Ms Khwanta said. Throughout the ordeal, she and her legal team have sought help from state organisations including the Royal Thai Embassy in Laos, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Prime Minister's Office, the Office of the Ombudsman and the Office of the Attorney-General. It is unclear what actions they have taken, but the family appears to be getting little help. Last month, they sent another letter to request the assistance of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Thailand to help Mr Kittidet. They asked the commissioner to address Mr Kittidet's unfair detention and help facilitate his urgent release from the Lao detention centre, and help him undergo a fair justice process. "I also want to ask the Thai agencies: Why are they not giving a helping hand to Mr Kittidet after learning of his plight?" said Mr Peerapat. ---

    Yes, Bolton, (John not Michael) is a warring arsehole. I didn't know he was a shirker in the Vietnam thing. As opposed to a peacenik, whom I would have some sympathy for. After all, North Vietnam wasn't threatening New York. And setting the rights and wrongs of that war aside, I do have sympathy and gratitude to the ordinary people and those who did serve, respectively, for what happened, as that conflict defined the modern world in my opinion, certainly changed Laos. A note on strategy - I think that maybe the Dems are deliberately confusing the issue on Trump/Impeachment/etc etc. With the intent together Trump to explode and take down the GOP with him. Long game.

  24. By Coconuts Bangkok Sep 10, 2019 | 11:17am Bangkok time Angkhana Neelapaijit in a 2018 photo. Photo: Angkhana Neelapaijit / Facebook A Thai human rights champion was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for her tireless campaign to reform the law and bring justice to Thailand while searching for her missing husband. Angkhana Neelapaijit, who was propelled into activism after her husband was abducted and presumed murdered 15 years ago, received what’s considered the Asian Nobel Prize yesterday in Manila. The committee cited her success in convincing Thailand to sign onto an international convention banning enforced disappearances, though legislation to make it domestic law has stalled. Her husband, Somchai Neelapaijit, was a Thai-Muslim human rights lawyer last seen being abducted in Bangkok’s Ramkhamhaeng area in 2004. At the time, he was pursuing allegations of torture carried out by the Thai military in a case that precipitated violence that has not subsided in 15 years, Angkhana was a housewife at the time. Now 63, she’s never given up seeking justice for Somchai. She was elevated to the National Human Rights Commission, where she was its strongest voice until resigning recently from the body which had been hollowed out and marginalized during five years of junta rule. She chairs the Working Group for Justice and Peace, which investigates allegations of abuse by security forces in the Deep South. In 2006 she was awarded Korea’s Gwangju Prize for Human Rights. Other recipients Monday in Manila included South Korean anti-bullying activist Kim Jong-ki, independent Myanmar reporter Ko Swe Win, Indian reporter Ravish Kumarand Filipino musician Ryan Cayabyab. It was the 61st time the Ramon Magsaysay awards have been conferred. Established in 1958, the awards celebrate “greatness of spirit and transformative leadership in Asia” to solving “some of the most intractable problems of human development.” They’re named for the Philippine’s third post-war president. https://coconuts.co/bangkok/news/thai-rights-defender-receives-asias-nobel-prize-in-manila/

    You know things are going badly pear shaped when the bad man fires the other bad man :: Trump fired his national security adviser John Bolton. "I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House," Trump tweeted. Bolton offered a slightly different version of events shortly after Trump made the announcement. "I offered to resign last night," Bolton tweeted, "and President Trump said, 'Let’s talk about it tomorrow.'" Bolton is the third person to have served as Trump's national security adviser since his election. The two have had a series of disagreements during Bolton's tenure, including over how to handle sensitive foreign policy matters involving North Korea, Afghanistan, and Iran. Trump did not name Bolton's successor but said he plans to appoint someone "next week." (New York Times / NBC News / CNN / MNSBC) I'm sure the Taliban are happy with "next week" - time to blow up some more people with car bombs. I'm sure little Rocketman is happy with "next week" - time to set off some more missile into the sea. I'm sure the Iranians are happy with "next week" - time to enrich up some more Uranium.
