Starbucks CEO implies it’s perfectly okay to commit violence against Whites, but not non-Whites

0

by Jayson Veley, Natural News:

Just days after the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, an outspoken leftist who has found himself surrounded by controversy on multiple occasions, took to Twitter and revealed to the entire world just how ignorant he really is. “I know we’re better than this,” the Starbucks Twitter page quoted Schultz as saying. “The bigotry, hatred, and senseless violence against people who are not white cannot stand.”

To be fair, Schultz’s statement is true – violence against minorities should not be tolerated by anyone, and we as a society should do everything in our power to discourage it. However, while the Starbucks CEO’s tweet may have been true in this sense, it was not complete. What he should have said was something along the lines of, “senseless violence against people of any race should never be tolerated and cannot stand.” It would have been a simple correction, but being the radical leftist that Howard Schultz is, he just couldn’t help but make his social media post racially divisive. (Related: Four solid reasons to avoid Starbucks.)

Several Twitter users did not hesitate to openly criticize Schultz, with some even accusing the Starbucks CEO of implying that white lives do not matter. “Violence against whites is okay. No one cares about whites, they are just trash. White lives DON’T matter. So says Howard Schultz,” wrote one Twitter user by the name of Captain Skywarn. Another wrote, “Should have said ‘against each other’ and left race out of it, you’re propagating what you’re preaching against.”

At one point, Starbucks replied to a Twitter user’s criticism and attempted to cover their tracks: “This is not about any specific group of people. We believe in kindness, respect and dignity for everyone.” But if it’s not about any specific group of people, then why did Howard Schultz specifically say, “Violence against people who are not white cannot stand?” It seems as though in the mind of Schultz, it really is about one specific group of people.

It is worth noting that the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia was not “evil whites attacking innocent blacks,” as the CEO of Starbucks apparently wants his followers to believe. Indeed, several pictures taken of the event depict blacks engaged in acts of violence, wearing masks and roaming the streets with weapons. One picture even shows a black man using a spray can as a flamethrower on a group of white protesters, though to be fair, it looks as though the man was only trying to torch the confederate flag that was being intentionally waved in his general direction.

The point is that its not only whites that are demonstrating bigotry and intolerance towards people with different skin color; blacks are guilty of the same thing. That is why the overarching message from everyone, regardless of political affiliation, should be a message of nonviolence and acceptance of all races. It’s a shame that Howard Schultz’s message on Twitter conveyed the exact opposite of that.

The progressive left seems to have developed a pattern of masking their race-baiting tactics with the constant perpetuation of victimization. They claim that they want us all to come together and unite, but in doing so, usually drive a wedge between black Americans and white Americans, thus dividing us even more.

In May of 2016, for example, Barack Obama delivered the commencement speech at the historically black Howard University, in which he blasted the “racist and discriminatory” judicial system. “We can’t just lock up a low-level dealer without asking why this boy, barely out of childhood, felt he had no other options,” Obama argued before going on to say that many minorities who were “just as smart and just as talented as we were” got “ground down by structures that are unfair and unjust.”

TODAY THE BANKERS THREW 2 MILLION OZ OF PAPER SHORTS TRYING TO KNOCK GOLD OFF ITS PERCH.  IT SUCCEEDED FOR ONLY ONE HOUR AS GOLD REBOUNDED ON NEWS OF YELLEN’S DOVISH SPEECH AT JACKSON HOLE. GOLD FINISHED UP $6.00 AND SILVER WAS UP 9 CENTS.

PRELIMINARY OI FOR MONDAY, AUGUST 28

 

 

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest FELL by A CONSIDERABLE 3703 contracts from 192,116 DOWN TO 188,413 DESPITE THE TINY FALL IN PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 9 CENTS). IT SEEMS THAT WE HAD A TRANSFER FROM SILVER OI’S TO SILVER EFP’S AS WE ARE APPROACHING FIRST DAY NOTICE. IN GOLD THE OBLITERATION IS HUGE, BUT IN SILVER IT IS MINOR. THE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S DESTROYS THE PRICE DISCOVERY MECHANISM BECAUSE WE HAVE NO PHYSICAL PRICE ANYWHERE IN THE EQUATION. THE LONGS RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS PLUS A “DELIVERABLE” PRODUCT WHICH IS NO DOUBT A LONDON BASED FORWARD.

RESULT: A LOWER OI WITH A SLIGHT PRICE DECREASE AND TWO RAID FAILURES.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.944 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 46 NOTICE(S) FOR 230,000OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest ROSE BY A CONSIDERABLE 2,984 CONTRACTS DESPITE THE FALL  in price of gold ($2.15 LOSS  YESTERDAY .). The new OI for the gold complex rests at 509,211.

AS IN SILVER, THE GEOPOLITICAL LANDSCAPE WITH TRUMP THREATENING TO CLOSE GOVERNMENT IF HE DID NOT GET HIS WALL CAUSED A HUGE NUMBER OF NEWBIE SPECS TO AGAIN ENTER THE GOLD ARENA WITH THE COMMERCIALS SUPPLYING THE NECESSARY PAPER. WE HAD TWO UNSUCCESSFUL RAIDS AGAINST GOLD YESTERDAY AND IT HAD NO REAL EFFECT ON THE PRICE. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT GET AN OBLITERATION OF OI IN A NON ACTIVE MONTH. THE BANKERS CALLED UPON THEIR TROOPS TO ORCHESTRATE ANOTHER RAID ON OUR PRECIOUS METALS AND THAT ENDED IN FAILURE AS WELL.

Result: A GOOD SIZED GAIN IN OI with A SMALL FALL IN PRICE IN GOLD.

SILVER RESPONDED TO THE GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE WHEREBY TRUMP THREATENED TO SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT UNLESS HE GOT HIS WALL. NEWBIE SPECS ENTERED THE ARENA. SOME  OLD SPECS, THOSE STILL PLAYING THE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS VS WASHINGTON GENERALS GAME, TENDERED FOR EFP’S. HOWEVER THE LOSS WAS TINY WHEN WE NORMALLY COMPARE  THE OBLITERATION WE GET IN GOLD. DEMAND FOR SILVER DID NOT DISSIPATE AT ALL, THEY JUST RECEIVED ANOTHER DELIVERABLE PRODUCT IN LONDON.(A FORWARD)

RESULT:  A MUCH LOWER OI AT THE COMEX, WITH A TINY LOWER PRICE. (AND A GAIN IN DELIVERABLE PRODUCT IN LONDON)

Angry Marine Who Discovered Awan’s “Smashed Hard Drives” Breaks Silence, Unloads On Wasserman Schultz

0

from Zero Hedge:

Andre Taggart, the U.S. Marine who alerted the FBI when he moved into a house he rented from Imran Awan only to find a garage full of “smashed hard drives”, has decided to reveal his identity in a stinging, at least for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, new interview with the Daily Caller.

Taggart, a black U.S. Marine who says he typically votes Democrat, is apparently fed up with Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Islamophobia smoke screen which he views as just a dishonest attempt to shield the Awans from their crimes.  In his epic rant to the Daily Caller, Taggart says the whole thing just “pisses me off” and that he’s “absolutely disgusted with everything going on in the country right now.”

“It pisses me off,” said Taggart, a black Marine who says he votes Democrat. He believes Wasserman Schultz is crying wolf and devaluing the meaning of genuine discrimination, while also exposing herself and the nation to risks.

“I just want to get these [guys] locked up and exposed and now,” Taggart told TheDCNF. “The people who facilitated them should also be locked up, as far as I’m concerned.”

Taggart said he made the decision to no longer be anonymous because he is concerned that his fellow Democrats are making a grave mistake by ignoring a scandal with serious criminal and national security implications.

“I’m absolutely disgusted with everything going on in the country right now, mostly because of right-wing conservatives, but with respect to this situation, political affiliation is irrelevant,” Taggart said.

“Him, his wife, his brother, all working down there — there’s no way they could do this without help. If we can drag Trump and his wingnuts through the mud for the Russia influence that they are having, then it’s only fair that we also expose this s–t,” Taggart said.

 

As we noted a few weeks ago, Taggart first discovered Awan’s smashed hard drives after he rented a house in Lorton, Va. that belonged to them.  Upon moving in, the Marine found a trove of abandoned computer equipment in the garage, much of which had been destroyed, and called the FBI to take a look.

One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”

 

The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.

 

“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”

Of course, Wasserman Schultz has rejected concerns about Imran as “absurd” and “laughable,” even though he had access to all of her congressional emails and files, as well as her iPad password, is suspected by police of cybersecurity violations, and had long been accused of defrauding people for financial gain.  Meanwhile, she has maintained all along that Awan is being “persecuted” by the Capitol Police and FBI and even went so far as to threaten the Capital Police Chief earlier this summer.

As I have mentioned we are in options expiry week and you should expect pressure on gold/silver for the next 7 trading days. Gold and silver got a break today as Trump demanded his wall.  If he does not get the secured funding for the wall, he will shut down government as there will not be a signed budget agreement for 2018.  The USA has only 86 billion dollars left in the kitty and they burn around 3 billion per day. So they may run out by Sept 22 or Sept 23. Should be a very interesting September.

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest FELL by only 1400 contracts from 188,627 down to 187,227 with THE DROP IN PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 3 CENTS). THE LOSS IN OI IS SMALLER IN COMPARISON TO THE LOSS IN OI IN GOLD AND THE CONSTANT TORMENT CAUSED BY OUR BANKERS.  THE BANKERS INITIATED THE PRICE DROP YESTERDAY WITH PAPER SHORTS AND THIS CAUSED SOME OF OUR NEWBIE SPECS TO EXIT. BUT GENERALLY THE ENTIRE SILVER COMPLEX REMAINS CALM

RESULT: A SLIGHTLY LOWER OI WITH A LOWER PRICE.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.936 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 134{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

The new OI for the gold complex rests at 500,443.  THE BANKERS INITIATED A RAID YESTERDAY AS THEY INITIALLY SUPPLIED THE SHORT PAPER TO LOWER THE GOLD PRICE.  SOME OF OUR NEWBIE SPECS EXITED THE GOLD ARENA AND THE BANKERS COVERED A TINY PORTION OF THEIR  SHORTS.

The open interest in gold fell to 505,829 contracts despite gold being up $5.05 yesterday. Silver’s OI continues to drop (tonight:188,627) as the bankers are looking over their shoulder at London and witnessing huge shortages of physical metal plus a severe backwardation. I wrote the following yesterday:  “We are now entering options expiry week and you know that gold and silver will be whacked until August 31.2017 (a week this Thursday). The crooks will do anything to keep gold below $1300.00 and silver below $17.10”

The bankers started their whacking so our underwriting banks steal from the public at large.

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY FELL by 204 contracts from 188,831 down to 188,627 with THE FLAT PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 0 CENTS) . THE LOSS IN OI ALSO CONTRASTS COMPLETELY TO THE LOSS IN GOLD OI DESPITE GOLD’S RISE IN PRICE YESTERDAY. WE MAY BE EXPERIENCING BANKER CAPITULATION IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER NOW. IN SILVER AGAIN, THE BANKERS ARE LOATHE TO SUPPLY NEW PAPER.  NEWBIE LONGS JUST TRADED CONTRACTS WITH OLDER SPECS.

RESULT: A SLIGHTLY LOWER OI WITH NO GAIN IN PRICE.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.944 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 14 NOTICE(S) FOR 70,000OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest FELL BY ONLY 826 CONTRACTS DESPITE THE RISE  in price of gold ($5.05 GAIN ON MONDAY .). The new OI for the gold complex rests at 505,829. THE LOSS IN OPEN INTEREST DESPITE THE GAIN IN PRICE MAY MEAN THAT THE BANKERS ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FEEL PAIN IN GOLD. WE WILL HAVE TO SEE MORE DAYS LIKE THIS TO SEE IF A PATTERN DEVELOPS. THE BANKERS DID NOT SUPPLY MUCH OF THE SHORT PAPER AND NEWBIE LONGS DROVE UP THE PRICE WITH SELLING COMING FROM OLDER LONGS. TODAY, THE BANKERS ORCHESTRATED A RAID ON GOLD AND SILVER HOPING TO SEE BOTH GOLD AND SILVER LEAVES FALL FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE TREES.

Result: A LOSS IN OI with GOOD GAIN IN PRICE IN GOLD.

John Rubino – Disappearing Middle Explains Charlottesville

by Kery Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

John Rubino joined us today. His take is that as the middle class disappears so does the middle point in our political debate, thereby leaving just the extremes. Obviously not a good thing. But attempting to wipeout or forget about our history is not the way to solve our problems. Rather history has proven to be the best teacher and an angry task master. Get ready for those who would attempt to rewrite or obliterate it. COT – Commitment of traders report has turned very bearish towards precious metals. This measure has worked continually over the past 10 years and shows no signs of quitting now. Will it be a down quarter for precious metals?

The open interest in gold rose to 506,000 contracts despite gold being down on Friday.  However silver’s OI continues to drop (tonight:188,000) as the bankers are looking over their shoulder at London and witnessing huge shortages of physical metal plus a severe backwardation. We are now entering options expiry week and you know that gold and silver will be whacked until August 31.2017 (a week this Thursday). The crooks will do anything to keep gold below $1300.00 and silver below $17.10

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY FELL BY A LARGER THAN EXPECTED 981 contracts from 189,812 DOWN to 188,831 with THE TINY FALL IN THE PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  FRIDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 4 CENTS) . THE FALL IN OI IS TINY WHEN YOU COMPARE IT TO GOLD (SEE BELOW). THE BANKERS AGAIN PROVIDED THE SHORT PAPER TO INITIATE ANOTHER RAID ON FRIDAY NOON TIME (7TH CONSECUTIVE DAY OF TORMENT). THAT SUCCEEDED IN DRIVING DOWN THE SILVER PRICE TO BELOW $17.00 UPON WHICH THE HFT TRADERS TOOK OVER ACCENTUATING THE FALL. NEWBIE LONGS, REALIZING ANOTHER BARGAIN WAS AT HAND GOBBLED UP WHAT WAS OFFERED.  THE BANKERS ARE STILL LOATHE TO SUPPLY THE PAPER COMPARED TO GOLD. RESULT: A LOWER OI, COUPLED WITH AN OUTSIDE DAY REVERSAL TO THE DOWNSIDE, ENDING IN A TINY LOSS FOR SILVER.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.944 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 24 NOTICE(S) FOR 120,000OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest ROSE by A MONSTROUS 13,528 DESPITE THE FALL  in price of gold ($0.35 LOSS ON FRIDAY .). The new OI for the gold complex rests at 506,655. A raid was called upon at noon time FRIDAY (once London was officially put to bed) and that drove gold down from its zenith of $1301.00 down to 1286.15 at comex closing. Firstly newbie longs piled into the comex gold complex driving it up to the 1300 dollar area.  Then the bankers initiated their raid upon which the HFT traders accentuated the downfall.  However newbie specs did not liquidate but actually added on to their positions with the lower price. THE BANKERS CONTINUED TO SUPPLY COMEX GOLD WITH RECKLESS ABANDON.

Result: extremely higher OI with no gain in price

we had: 0 notice(s) filed upon for nil oz of gold.

Google Working with Alt-Left Smear Groups to Snuff Out Conservative Websites

0

by Pamela Geller, Freedom Outpost:

The Wall Street Journal headline is wrong. “Tech Censorship of White Supremacists Draws Criticism From Within Industry,” My colleagues and I have been targeted. Robert Spencer was suspended last night from Paypal. Neither Robert Spencer nor I are “white supremacists.” It is a foul outrage that this crushing of free speech is being framed in these specious terms.

The idea that Google is partnering with smear merchants is blood chilling. No one is safe.

THE MOVES BY TECH COMPANIES LIKE CLOUDFLARE HAVE BEEN CHIDED FOR THREATENING FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION ONLINE

By Yoree Koh, Wall Street Journal, Aug. 19, 2017 8:28 a.m. ET

The debate intensified over whether the growing number of tech companies that blocked white supremacists and a neo-Nazi website on the internet have gone too far, as a prominent privacy group questioned the power a few corporations have to censor.

The Chief Executive of Cloudflare Inc., one of several internet companies this week to cut ties with Daily Stormer, effectively preventing the neo-Nazi website from appearing on the web, admitted he set a troubling precedent.

“As [an] internet user, I think it’s pretty dangerous if my moral, political or economic whims play some role in deciding who can and cannot be online,” Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of Cloudflare, said in an interview.

Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document “hate crimes and events” in America. They’ve partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about “hate events” easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy.

In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote:

Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting.

The Documenting Hate News Index — built by the Google News Lab, data visualization studio Pitch Interactive and ProPublica — takes a raw feed of Google News articles from the past six months and uses the Google Cloud Natural Language API to create a visual tool to help reporters find news happening across the country. It’s a constantly-updating snapshot of data from this year, one which is valuable as a starting point to reporting on this area of news.

The Documenting Hate project launched in response to the lack of national data on hate crimes. While the FBI is required by law to collect data about hate crimes, the data is incomplete because local jurisdictions aren’t required to report incidents up to the federal government.

All of which underlines the value of the Documenting Hate Project, which is powered by a number of different news organisations and journalists who collect and verify reports of hate crimes and events. Documenting Hate is informed by both reports from members of the public and raw Google News data of stories from across the nation.

On the surface, this looks rather innocuous. It’s presented by Google as an attempt to create a database of hate crimes — information that should be available with a quick Google search, it should be noted. But a quick glance at the list of partners for this project should raise some red flags:

The  ProPublica-led coalition includes  The Google News Lab,  Univision News, the  New York Times,  WNYC,  BuzzFeed News,  First Draft,  Meedan,  New America Media,  The Root,  Latino USA,  The Advocate,  100 Days in Appalachia and  Ushahidi. The coalition is also working with civil-rights groups such as the  Southern Poverty Law Center, and schools such as the  University of Miami School of Communications.

ProPublica poses as a middle-of-the-road non-profit journalistic operation, but in reality, it’s funded by a stable of uber-liberal donors, including George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and Herb and Marion Sandler, billionaire former mortgage bankers whose Golden West Financial Corp. allegedly targeted subprime borrowers with “pick-a-pay” mortgages that led to toxic assets that were blamed for the collapse of Wachovia. The Southern Poverty Law Center, of course, is infamous for targeting legitimate conservatives groups, branding them as “hate groups” because they refuse to walk in lockstep with the progressive agenda. And it goes with out saying that The New York Times and BuzzFeed News lean left.

Report: Zuckerberg Shut Down Trump-Supporting Facebook Employee Group

0

by Lucan Nolan, Breitbart:

Facebook reportedly shut down an internal chat room which evolved into a forum for anonymous Facebook employees to discuss their support of President Donald Trump.

Business Insider reports that Facebook has shut down an anonymous online discussion group called “Facebook Anon” that was created in May of 2105 and was intended to be used by employees to anonymously express their concerns and opinions about the Facebook company. However, over the course of the 2016 election, this anonymous group reportedly became a hub for political discussion and comments, which reportedly alarmed Facebook management. By December of 2016, the anonymous group was shut down with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claiming that the group had been “spreading harassment.”

The anonymous group reportedly became a key place of discussion for right-leaning Facebook employees, perhaps because they felt that they could express their conservative views more openly in an anonymous forum. It was reported that a poster advertising the group on Facebook’s campus stated, “Trump Supporters Welcome,” a sentiment that is typically out of place in Silicon Valley. Many observers have drawn comparisons between Facebook’s shut down of one of the few conservative leaning groups for employees and the firing of former Google engineer James Damore who was let go from his position at Google for criticizing the company’s PC culture.

Facebook’s Head of People, Lori Goler, spoke to Business Insider saying, “Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together, and a cornerstone of our culture is being open. The FB Anon internal Facebook group violated our Terms of Service, which require people who use Facebook (including our employees) to use an authentic identity on our platform. Last year we disabled any anonymous internal groups or pages within Facebook, and reminded our people of the places at our company where they can have discussions about issues that matter to them, openly or confidentially as appropriate.”

“There was a feeling that everyone at the company was a Democrat or left-leaning,” an anonymous former employee told Business Insider, “I don’t think they really thought there would be too many people on the Trump side.” A month after the election of President Trump, the anonymous Facebook group was shut down. At a company meeting, Mark Zuckerberg was asked why the group had been shut down, replying that the group had been used by employees to harass people and this behavior would not be tolerated. Zuckerberg did not provide evidence of the harassment.

Shortly after the deletion of the group, more posters appeared on the Facebook campus featuring the beginning and end dates of the group with the tagline, “Silenced, but not silent.”
