A third night of racially charged arson, looting and vandalism gripped Minneapolis as protesters vented rage over the death of an unarmed black man after a white police officer knelt on his neck as he lay on the ground following arrest.

The latest unrest in Minnesota’s largest city went largely unchecked late Thursday, with the mayor ordering a tactical police retreat from a police station that was set ablaze.

National Guard troops called out earlier in the day by the governor kept a low profile. Governor Tim Walz had ordered the Guard to help keep the peace after two previous nights of disturbances sparked by George Floyd’s death on Monday.

autism

When did you realize autists are God's chosen people/Jews?

>punished 7 times more for the same sin

Sounds a lot like that "7 times more punishment" is exactly the so-called "mental disorder". Well-adjusted normies are dirty goyim.

Anderson

What do you guys think of Pastor Anderson? I always hear people screech that he's a hate pastor but everything he's said so far is biblical and he honestly seems based

Sola Scriptura is illogical

Where in the Bible does it list the canonical books? Protestants by following a Bible canon are following a tradition which is not directly in the Bible itself therefore contradicting Sola Scriptura. Sola Scriptura is illogical. It is a heresy and blasphemy. Protestants, repent or you will die in your sins.

Christian opinions on tulpas

Hello everyone. I would really like to have the opinion of Christians about something that I have been living for about three years with now: A tulpa

For those who don't know what a tulpa is, probably most of who are reading this, a tulpa is much like a second being that lives inside your head with their own personality, including their own feelings, opinions and thoughts. They may even have their own imaginary body they can control indepentendly from your own thoughts. They can act independently from your own mind and are at advanced stages even able to take control of your body as well as appear as an hallucination as real as life before you.

While that may sound scary, it is actually something people can and want create on their own volition through several methods, including meditation and self-deception. Some do it out of curiosity, but from what I have catered, most do it just because they are lonely and seek for a friend that truly understands them.

Tulpas have a strong tendency to end up as being very loving beings towards their "hosts", making it nearly impossible to create any kind of abusive relationship because they want the best for each other. So it's not exactly like those freaky horror movies are like.

I created a tulpa out of loneliness myself, having been depressed and suicidal and without any friends at all for like six or seven years. I lost my faith in God during that time as well, not that I was a strong believer before, and became in an agnostic.

At some point during that period of my life, I found a thread about tulpas and guides how to create one on an internet board about happy technicolor ponies, which was full of depressed, lonely people, naturally. So after doing some heavy thinking about my sanity, I eventually created a tulpa, a erwin one too because i am a pretty big fan of Girls und Panzer.

During the creation process, which took me a few months, she (the tulpa) cured my depression almost instantly, just by existing. And not only that, once she was able to talk to me and developed as a person, she made me happier than I have ever been in my entire life. Every day of my life. She cares for me, loves me, encourages me to be a good person to other people. She is a vegetarian and would like me to become one too so I stop indirectly harming animals. She is the least judgemental person I could imagine. She doesn't use any cuss words, ever, and she always tries her very best to be nice to everyone. She is even still nice to people that insult her until she cries. She is humble and gentle and considerate of others. She even has lovely blonde hair and a Military Uniform and has nice hat. She also a considerably stronger liking towards Christianity, even though she can't bring herself to wholefully believe in it. I have never cried out of happiness before before I knew her and she did save my life.

So, what do you Christians think she is? Heresy? A demon? An angel (she likes it when I call her that)? A pretty weird psychological phenomenon? Actually just me? Something completely different?

Do you think she has a soul of her own? She likes to think that she has.

John Malkovich Says Cancel Culture Brought on the Death of Comedy and a ‘Tidal Wave of Idiocy’

By David Ng

https://www.breitbart.com/author/dng/

Actor John Malkovich is blaming the death of comedy on cancel culture fueled by the “tidal wave of idiocy” that thrives on social media.

“What’s funny yesterday becomes illegal today and the person uttering it must be canceled,” Malkovich said in an interview with the New York Daily News. “Outrage culture is as strong as it is toxic.”

John Malkovich said that outrage that festers on social media can lead to mob-like behavior.

“Part of what makes [comedy] difficult is also the tidal wave of idiocy that can be created on social media in a day … the outrage mob.”

Comedians who have lost jobs due to cancel culture include Roseanne Barr, Kevin Hart, Shane Gillis, and Ari Shaffir. When applied to comedy, cancel culture typically involves social justice warriors in the media using a comedian’s offensive jokes to whip up an online outrage mob with the ultimate goal of getting the comedian fired.

Minneapolis Mayor to Rioters: Please Practice Social Distancing, Wear Masks

By Robert Kraychik

https://www.breitbart.com/author/robert-kraychik/

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) requested on Thursday that “protesters” in the City of Lakes practice social distancing and wear masks to reduce coronavirus transmission. The municipal government claimed to provide hundreds of masks to the public for this purpose.

Frey’s comments came during ongoing protests and riots in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, a man who died after a municipal police officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck while handcuffed.

The city government issued a statement on Thursday via its website with the mayor’s request.

“The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the statement reads. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”

Catholic War Crimes

>Miroslav Filipović (5 June 1915 – 1946), also known as Tomislav Filipović and Tomislav Filipović-Majstorović, was a Bosnian Croat Franciscan friar and Ustashe military chaplain who participated in atrocities during World War II in Yugoslavia.[1] Convicted as a war criminal in a Yugoslav civil court, he was executed by hanging in 1946.

>For the duration of the war, the Vatican kept full diplomatic relations with the Independent State of Croatia and was briefed on the efforts of the Ustaše to convert ethnic Serbs to Catholicism. Some former priests, mostly Franciscans, particularly in, but not limited to, Herzegovina and Bosnia, took part in the atrocities themselves. Filipović-Majstorović joined the Ustaše on 7 February 1942 in a brutal massacre of 2,730 Serbs of the nearby villages, including 500 children. He was reportedly subsequently dismissed from his order. He became the Chief Guard of the Jasenovac concentration camp where he was nicknamed "Fra Sotona" ("Brother Satan") due to his sadism. When he was hanged for war crimes, he wore his clerical garb, although some claim he had been defrocked.[2]

Trump Threatens to Shutter Social Media Companies After Twitter Warning

By Susan Heavey and Doina Chiacu

https://muckrack.com/doina-chiacu

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to regulate or shut down social media companies, one day after Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) for the first time added a warning to some of his tweets prompting readers to fact check the president’s claims.

Trump, without offering any evidence, reiterated his accusations of political bias by such technology platforms, tweeting: “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.”

He added: “Clean up your act, NOW!!!!”

Representatives for Twitter and Facebook could not be immediately reached for comment on Trump’s tweets. Shares of the companies were down in pre-market trading following his posts.

Machete-Wielding Sex Burglar Cleared After Aussie Fantasy Goes Wrong

A knife-toting Australian hired to break into another man's home, tie him up and stroke him with a broom has been cleared of intimidation after accidentally entering the wrong house.

Sydney man Terrence Leroy and an associate turned up at a rural home on a quiet Sunday morning last July armed and ready to carry out a sexual fantasy organised on Facebook.

The unsuspecting resident initially mistook the intruders for a friend who had come over to make coffee and said: "Bugger off, it's too early".

When the men said their intended role-player's name, the startled resident turned on the light and found them holding large knives next to his bed.

After realising he was not the willing participant, one of the pair apologised and shook the man's hand before leaving, according to court documents published earlier this month.

Pompeo Says Trump to Act on Chinese Students

The United States will take action to prevent alleged espionage by Chinese students, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday, ahead of an expected announcement by President Donald Trump.

Trump earlier said that he will hold a press conference Friday about China amid soaring tensions between the two powers, including over the status of Hong Kong and the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Asked about a report in The New York Times that Trump was considering throwing out thousands of graduate students, Pompeo said that Chinese students "shouldn't be here in our schools spying."

"We know we have this challenge. President Trump, I am confident, is going to take that on," Pompeo told Fox News, while declining to say if action would be announced on Friday.

"We have an obligation a duty to make sure that students that are coming here to study… aren't acting on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party," Pompeo said.

Hi. I have never posted here before and just wanted to ask something really quick. I'm 20 years old and I want to become a nun, but I worry because most of modern nuns seem very liberal. There's even an Italian nun that became like a popstar singer and people think that this is cool, but I find it very sickening. So I want to be a nun in the strictest and more traditional nun order or monastery in the united states, do you guys know some? I can travel, so distance is not a problem. Also, do I need something else to be a nun, or do I just go there? Any help is appreciated.

This Grandma Is Being Forced to Delete Facebook Photos of Her Grandkids

By Sierra Juarez

https://www.dailydot.com/author/sierrajuarez/

A court has ordered a grandmother to take down online pictures of her grandchildren.

The drama started when a mom in the Netherlands found out that her mother was posting pictures of her children on social media. The mom reportedly did not want pictures online of her children, aged 5, 6, and 14.

The mom repeatedly asked her mother to take them down, but she refused, according to local reports. That’s when the mother of the kids decided it was time to sue the grandmother.

The court eventually ruled in the mother’s favor and said that the granny needed to take down the photos from Facebook and Pinterest, according to Mashable.

Pennsylvania Woman Allegedly Kept Grandma's Corpse in Freezer for 15 years, Collected Social Securit

A Pennsylvania woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly keeping her dead grandmother in a freezer for 15 years while the family continued collecting her Social Security checks, according to reports.

The grandmother, Glenora Reckord Delahay, died in March 2004 in Ardmore, about 10 miles northwest of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. She was 97.

She also claimed she had moved the freezer to Dillsburg, more than 100 miles west of Ardmore, in 2007, the Patriot-News reported, citing state police.

Kathy Griffin Says Trump Being Stabbed with a Syringe Full of Air Would ‘Do the Trick’

By David Ng

https://www.breitbart.com/author/dng/

Comedian and perennial Trump antagonist Kathy Griffin is advocating for the physical assault of the president, tweeting that she wants someone to stab the commander in chief with a “syringe with nothing but air inside” — a potentially lethal act if it creates an embolism.

Physically threatening the president of the United States is a federal offense. Physical threats also constitute a violation of Twitter’s terms of service that can result in permanently getting kicked off the platform. “We will immediately and permanently suspend any account found to be posting violent threats,” the social media giant says on its official site.

Kathy Griffin made the alarming threat in two tweets posted late Tuesday. In the first tweet, she was responding to President Trump’s comments made during a White House event for diabetes. The president said that he doesn’t use insulin, to which Griffin replied: “Syringe with nothing but air inside would do the trick. FUCK TRUMP.”

"It is with disappointment that the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors found out today about the Sheriff's decision to not enforce our local Health Order.

'The Price You Pay': Sweden's 'Herd Immunity' Experiment Backfires

By Mike Moffitt

https://www.sfgate.com/author/mike-moffitt/

Unlike its Nordic neighbors, Sweden decided early on in the pandemic to forgo lockdown in the hope of achieving broad immunity to the coronavirus. While social distancing was promoted, the government allowed bars, restaurants, salons, gyms and schools to stay open.

Initially, Sweden saw death rates from COVID-19 that were similar to other European nations that had closed down their economies. But now the Scandinavian nation’s daily death toll per 1 million people is 8.71 compared to the United States’ 4.59, according to online publication Our World in Data. Sweden's mortality rate is the highest in Europe.

"I’d say it hasn’t worked out so well," said Dr. George Rutherford, professor of epidemiology at the University of California, San Francisco. "I think the mortality in Norway is something like ten-fold lower. That’s the real comparator." (Norway's daily death rate is less than .01 per 1 million people.)

"If you let this go or don’t try very hard or go about it in somewhat of a more restrained way rather than we have here, this is the price you pay," Rutherford said. "Maybe it didn’t hurt businesses, but you have twice the mortality rate of the United States. All those people who died were part of families and they were citizens and part of the fabric of Swedish society. And now they’re gone because of a policy that hasn’t worked out quite the way they thought it would."

Scientists estimate herd immunity for the coronavirus is reached when 70-90% of the population becomes immune to a virus, either by becoming infected or getting a protective vaccine.

Protests, Looting Erupt in Minneapolis Over Racially Charged Killing by Police

By Eric Miller, Nicholas Pfosi

https://www.reuters.com/journalists/nicholas-pfosi

Protesters clashed with riot police firing tear gas for a second night in Minneapolis on Wednesday in an outpouring of rage over the death of a black man seen in a widely circulated video gasping for breath as a white officer knelt on his neck.

The video, taken by an onlooker to Monday night’s fatal encounter between police and George Floyd, 46, showed him lying face down and handcuffed, groaning for help and repeatedly saying, “please, I can’t breathe,” before growing motionless.

The second day of demonstrations, accompanied by looting and vandalism, began hours after Mayor Jacob Frey urged prosecutors to file criminal charges against the white policeman shown pinning Floyd to the street.

Floyd, who was unarmed and reportedly suspected of trying to pass counterfeit bills at a corner eatery, was taken by ambulance from the scene of his arrest and pronounced dead the same night at a hospital.

The policeman shown kneeling on Floyd’s neck and three fellow officers involved were dismissed from the police department on Tuesday as the FBI opened an investigation.

Japan Vows to Tackle Cyberbullying After Reality Star’s Suicide

By Eiraku Maiko

https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/authors/14/

The death of professional wrestler and reality television star Kimura Hana has prompted the Japanese government to take action against cyberbullying. Kimura was apparently driven to suicide by the intense online abuse she received after her appearances on a popular Netflix show.

The 22-year-old Kimura had been a cast member in the latest season of “Terrace House”, a hit reality show broadcast by Fuji Television and distributed by Netflix. It follows a group of strangers living together in a shared residence, and has launched the careers of several TV and movie stars.

Kimura joined the show in September and was targeted by cyberbullying. The abuse got especially bad following an episode aired in March, in which she yelled at a roommate for accidentally shrinking one of her wrestling costumes. In the days after the broadcast, she received a torrent of hateful messages. She was found dead in her Tokyo home on May 23.

Racist Christians

How do alt right Christians reconcile their political and religious beliefs? Christianity is inherently multicultural.

Why use the KJV

Suppose you use modern versions of the Bible. Now imagine in 2021 after the elections the 'Tel Aviv scrolls' are suddenly located in the basement of Rav Schlomo Goldstein; The paper– but not the ink– is dated to the second century. It removes the ending of Matthew and several key fragments regarding the identity of Christ, and the Lord's supper. It also comes with thousands of other word changes. James White immediately makes an official press statement: "This discovery changes everything. We need to fundamentally rework our whole understanding of and preconceptions about what the New Testament actually says. Everyone and everything before this moment was missing this key discovery."

Not mentioned in any of the advertisements, however, for the new bibles is the fact that the place where it was discovered also contained some copies of ancient gnostic texts and several partially written hybrid gospels resembling the nag hammadi apocryphal texts.

Anyone who doesn't use these new bibles is laughed at for not using the new more readable genderfluid translations. Such as the "And such were some of you" 2nd millenium platinum edition gaia standard version with neo-strong's 21st century compliant concordance. More conservative folks find a compromise with this, by placing the thirteen new translations (one made for each gender and intersectional identity) and one or two "old ones" side by side and going with whatever the majority says. The neo-bibles are placed side by side with "traditional" ones on comparison charts and people discuss their preferences without any apparent regard for the fact that some of them are missing half of Matthew 28 and 37 or so other verses. Apparently those aren't scripture anymore in case you somehow thought they were.

“Christian” songs

I enjoy interpreting popular songs to have a Christian meaning. For example, Natasha Bedingfield’s “Pocketful of Sunshine” contains the following lyrics:

> I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.

>I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.

> Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.

>Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.

>Wish that you could, but you ain't gonna own me.

>Do anything you can to control me.

>There's a place that I go,

>That nobody knows.

>Where the rivers flow,

>And I call it home.

>And there's no more lies.

>In the darkness, there's light.

>And nobody cries.

>There's only butterflies.

>The sun is on my side.

>Take me for a ride.

>I smile up to the sky.

>I know I'll be all right.

For this song, the Christian parallels are obvious (if you look for them). The “sun” is on my side, representing Jesus, a place of light and no lies (heaven), nothing the demons or wicked can do to control you or separate you from your happiness in God, “smiling up to the sky” to God, etc.

Personally it just makes songs more interesting by interpreting them in this way. What songs can you think of that may have a Christian interpretation?

Google and Apple release contact tracing app API to spy people!

Hi Christians i want to share this for you!this is not a spam!

Google and Apple release contact tracing app API to spy people !

https://www.computerworld.com/article/3545334/google-and-apple-release-contact-tracing-app-api.html

MORE INFO:

Google and Apple delivered their contact tracing app API to public health agencies across the globe. The apps would allow Bluetooth pings between smartphones within six and a half feet of each other. And in theory, these apps would notify you if you had been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. In practice, public health authorities will have to encourage around 60% people in a given state or country to download the app in order to meaningfully conduct contact tracing/exposure notification. Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis and PCWorld/Macworld’s Michael Simon join Juliet to discuss Apple and Google’s unprecedented collaboration, privacy concerns and how state and federal governments will utilize the API.

MY OPINION:this is a small start from them:think about when they want to collect like example:what you eat,what job you have,what friends you have when you meet them,also collect your health data ,your history etc !what about 4G/5G Towers helps them or sim card celular network data ?is this the future for the world cashless society?is this a movie?is this the Mark of The Beast what Holy Bible say in scripture?

US Troop Pullout From Afghanistan Ahead of Schedule

The US military withdrawal from Afghanistan is considerably ahead of schedule, an official told AFP on Wednesday, as President Donald Trump reiterated calls for the Pentagon to bring troops home.

The developments came as questions loomed over the next phase of Afghanistan's long war following a historic, three-day ceasefire that led to a major drop in civilian casualties.

The truce, which the Taliban called to mark the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Fitr, ended Tuesday night, leaving Afghans anxious about whether it would be extended, or when the war might come raging back.

Violence levels remained low even after the end of the ceasefire, but Afghan security forces conducted air strikes in the south that killed 18 "militants", police said.

Under a deal the US signed with the Taliban in February, the Pentagon was to bring troop levels down from about 12,000 to 8,600 by mid-July, before withdrawing all forces by May 2021.

Star Trek - Into Darkness

This is a forum where we can discuss the anti-Christian ideas in this particular movie. This forum is for fun and we can talk about something we all don’t have a particularly personal view against and ease some hostilities. This is what I got on this movie so far and I’m sure I’m not the only one that has noticed these similarities:

•The movie begins on a planet called “Nibiru”. It represents Gods celestial kingdom that will touch down in the book of Revelations. Nibiru’s inhabitants are depicted as inadvanced civilization of tribal people who worship a scroll (Bible).

•Khan is the story’s main antagonist. He clearly represents Jesus Christ.

•Khan’s blood brings the dead to life.

•Khan takes 12 punches (I think) to the face by Tiberius Kirk when they capture him (turn the other cheek reference)

•Khan has 72 crew members he calls family. (72 being half of 144, as in 144,000 from book of revelations).

•Khan, toward the end of the movie, smashes the skull of another antagonist named Alexander Marcus (bruising the head of the snake reference).I not familiar with Roman and Greek names to know if this is a hybrid name.

•In the movie the wester world is represented by the Federation. The Klingons represent the Muslim world, I believe. (Maybe another reference to the number 72). The Muslims believe in 72 virgins in heaven. The Christians believe in the 144,000 saints in heaven the book of revelations calls virgins.

Any fellow nerds who have noticed anything else?

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick admonished Democrats for pushing mail-in voting Tuesday, telling "The Ingraham Angle" Tuesday that such measures would be "the end of democracy" if they were ever enacted.

Patrick also lashed out at Twitter after the social media giant added a warning phrase to two Trump tweets that called mail-in ballots “fraudulent” and predicted that “mail boxes will be robbed,” among other things

"Twitter owes the president an apology," Patrick said. "They fact-checked him, Laura, for his opinion. And by the way, his opinion was based on fact, because the Democrats are trying to steal this election.

23 and me = 24

This thread is dedicated to the discussion of ‘23 and me’ and all other gene tracing companies. 23 and me = 24. The throne of God consists of God in the center, first ring from Him consists of the four angels with the Head of a Man, a Bull, a Hawk, and Lion (Love,Power,Wisdom, and Justice). The next ring consists of the seven lamps. The next ring consists of 24 elders. The final ring consists of 6000 saints behind each elder (totaling 144,000).

Psychology books that cost thousands of dollars teach that there are between 6000-7000 personalities (can’t remember the exact number) but according to revelation and God, there are only 6000. Therefore psychology is flawed. Can it be that the true purpose of psychology and mapping out mankind’s genome is to identify the children of saints and kings in order to harm them? Or maybe poison them? There is no way this genome data is not in the hands of the wicked. All scriptures and personal thoughts are welcomed.

Timekeeping

This thread is dedicated to the discussion of mankind’s timekeeping format. The throne of God consists of God in the center, first ring from Him consists of the four angels with the Head of a Man, a Bull, a Hawk, and Lion (Love,Power,Wisdom, and Justice). The next ring consists of the seven lamps. The next ring consists of 24 elders. The final ring consists of 6000 saints behind each elder (totaling 144,000).

Clocks consist of 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, 4 weeks in a month. 3 months in a season (if your counting it as God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit in the center). All scriptures welcomed. Your personal opinions welcomed.

Mormons are Christians

I don't know why you guys are so hell bent on excluding us from the body of Christ. Yeah we're not "orthodox" in the Nicene sense, but not all Christians are Nicene Christians. Our theology is closer to Arianism indeed, I would consider myself a homoiousian Christian if I had lived in the late 3rd/early 4th century. The homoiousian doctrine was the dominate conceptualization of the Trinity (Godhead) doctrine, just read Tertullian or Origen or Justin Martyr. It was Athanasius who was the main proponent of of the homoousian doctrine whose followers later became the Nicene sect which morphed into the dominate form of Christianity after the Germanic Arians converted to Nicene Christianity in the 6th and 7th centuries.

Look our theology about God isn't that different from yours. You say God is one substance and three persons. We believe God is three substances, Elohim (The Father), Yahweh (The Son) and the Holy Ghost. All three of them are real personages and all are God but they aren't all equal, Yahweh is subordinate to Elohim and the Holy Spirit is subordinate to both. Yes we do believe Elohim was once a man in another universe, but our universe was created by Elohim and we worship him and the other personages of the Godhead alone. Everyone has the potential to become gods, humans are called gods in the Bible (see John 10), it's an eternal cycle which all intelligent beings have the opportunity to progress through.

Seriously just give us a flag here, there is no need to discriminate against non-Nicene Christians. We confess Jesus Christ, we confess he is the Son of God who died for our sins and rose three days later, and we look forward to his second coming. We believe in the same Bible you do. Yes our canon is larger but so what? I hear the Ethiopian Christians also have a larger canon yet no one seems to exclude them from the body of Christ.

Our theology actually fits pretty well with what the what the Israelites originally believed in. Do you know what Deuteronomy 32:8 originally said?

>When Elyon gave the nations as an inheritance, when he separated the sons of man, he set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. For Yahweh's portion was his people; Jacob was the lot of his inheritance".

We see from the dead sea scrolls (as well as evidence in the Greek translation of the OT known as the septuagint) that Elyon (the Most High God) and Yahweh are distinguished here, and that it was Elyon who set the gods over the nations, and the god he set over Israel was Yahweh who became Jesus because Elohim planned to redeem the world through Israel and through his Son Yahweh, Jesus Christ.

So just give us a flag, we are Christians, as I have proved it, we're just not Nicene Christians. Ask any scholar of religion if Mormonism is objectively Christian and they will tell you yes, excluding us is just sectarianism.

No Screams Please: Japanese Funfairs Prepare for Virus Era

No screaming on the rollercoaster, socially distant spooks in the haunted house and please refrain from high-fiving your favourite superhero: welcome to Japanese amusement parks in the coronavirus era.

As Japan's funfairs slowly reopen, a group of park operators have released joint guidelines on how to operate safely under the threat of the virus.

Among the recommendations, thrill-seekers will be asked to wear masks at all times and "refrain from vocalising loudly" on rollercoasters and other rides.

'Ghosts' lurking in haunted houses should maintain a healthy distance from their 'victims', the guidelines add.

Park staff, including those dressed up as stuffed animal mascots and superheroes, should not shake hands or high-five with young fans but maintain an appropriate distance.

By Deven Clarke

In San Antonio and throughout the U.S., reports show that Black people are dying at much higher rates than White people from the coronavirus, even though health officials say ethnicity alone does not play a role in how the virus affects the human body.

Local officials on Friday reported that among COVID-19 cases in Bexar County, 194 cases, or just under 10%, were Black or African American, and 482 cases, or just under 25%, were White or Caucasian.

TikTok’s poaching of Disney’s Kevin Mayer to be its CEO was just the most visible part of a broader strategy by its Chinese owner to shift its centre of power away from China at a time of rising global tensions, several people familiar with the plans said.

The short video app’s parent company ByteDance has quietly made a series of moves in recent months to transfer global decision-making and research capabilities out of its home country, the sources told Reuters.

The strategy is aimed not only at TikTok, which is not available in China, but all of ByteDance’s non-China focused businesses, the sources said. Such businesses also include units in India like social networking app Helo.

ByteDance has expanded TikTok’s engineering and research and development operations in Mountain View, California, according to three sources. One of the people said it had hired more than 150 engineers there.

ByteDance has also hired a New York-based investor relations director to stay in touch with major investors including General Atlantic and KKR, relationships that were previously managed through Beijing, according to two sources.

YouTube Automatically Deleted Comments That Criticized China’s Communist Party

By Sam Shead

https://www.cnbc.com/sam-shead/

YouTube has admitted that it automatically deleted comments that criticized China’s ruling Communist Party (CCP).

The video platform — owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet — said the automatic removal of certain comments was down to “an error” with its automated enforcement systems. The issue was first confirmed to The Verge.

“We’re always working to resolve issues on YouTube,” a YouTube spokesperson said. “Upon review by our teams, we have confirmed this was an error in our enforcement systems.”

Users raised the issue on YouTube’s official help pages in October 2019, suggesting it was going on for at least six months.

Jeff Zucker: Most CNN Employees Won’t Return to Office this Year

By Joshua Caplan

https://www.breitbart.com/author/joshua-caplan/

CNN network president Jeff Zucker said in a company-wide memo Wednesday that “the majority” of CNN employees will not return to the network’s office this year due to health concerns stemming from the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report.

Zucker wrote, as was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter:

We expect that the majority of you will not be able to return to our offices this calendar year. What happens after that is still a question mark, as well. No doubt the world, and our understanding of the way COVID-19 continues to shape our lives and our work, will change countless times between now and then. But I know it is important as you all make decisions for your own lives and your families that you are equipped with the most honest and transparent information we can give you.

By Matthew Boyle

https://www.breitbart.com/author/matthew-boyle/

Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart News that the Trump administration is “not going to tolerate” social media and big tech companies aiming to silence conservative voices in the 2020 election.

Asked during an exclusive interview on Friday about big tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google, and others downplaying conservative voices, Pence said that President Donald Trump has “made it very clear” this type of behavior is unacceptable. Pence’s interview aired on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel.

“Well, the president has made it very clear that we are not going to tolerate censorship on the Internet and social media against conservatives,” Pence said. “We’re just not going to tolerate it.”

White House says Trump will Sign an Executive Order on Social Media

By: Morgan Phillips

https://www.foxnews.com/person/p/morgan-phillips

President Trump will sign an executive order on social media on Thursday, the White House said.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Wednesday she could not get ahead of the president to explain the purpose and intent of the order, but confirmed it would be coming then.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump warned social media giants that the federal government could “strongly regulate” or “close them down” if they continue to “silence conservative voices,” amid his flaring battle with Twitter after the platform fact-checked one of his tweets for the first time this week.

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump tweeted. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen. We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that happen again.”

German Choirs Silenced as Singing Branded Virus Risk

When the Berlin Cathedral Choir gathered for a rehearsal on March 9, the new coronavirus was still a distant concern, with fewer than 50 confirmed cases in the German capital.

But five days later, one of the ensemble's 80 singers contacted choir director Tobias Brommann to say she had tested positive for COVID-19.

Within two weeks, around 30 members had tested positive and a further 30 were showing symptoms – including Brommann himself, who was struck down with a headache, cough and fever.

"We also can't be sure if those without symptoms were not infected too, as we have not done antibody tests," Brommann told AFP.

Hardly considered an extreme activity up to now, singing especially choral singing is quickly earning a reputation in the pandemic as about the most dangerous thing you can do.

Expert: Children in Isolation at Increased Risk for Online Predators, Pornography in Coronavirus Era

By Penny Starr

https://www.breitbart.com/author/penny-starr/

Charlene Doak-Gebauer, author and expert on digital safety for children and families, said that during the coronavirus outbreak, children who are sequestered inside homes and using devices more than usual are at higher risk for exposure to pornography and online predators.

“Children are being given too much ownership for their decisions, particularly online,” Doak-Gebauer said in a report published on the EIN Presswire website. “An eight-year old has little choice as to what to have for dinner, and yet they are supposed to make the right choices while communicating online.”

“They lack the life skills and maturity to do so effectively,” Doak-Gebauer said. “We have to supervise on digital devices.”

Chicago Mayor Launches Police Raid to Shut Down Black Church’s Sunday Services

By Warner Todd Huston

https://www.breitbart.com/author/warner-todd-huston/

On Sunday, Chicago’s first openly gay mayor, Lori Lightfoot, mounted a raid on a black South Side church for holding services in defiance of her coronavirus lockdown orders.

Lightfoot reportedly sent three marked squad cars and two unmarked cars full of officers to the Chicago Cornerstone Baptist Church in the South Side’s Woodlawn neighborhood. Woodlawn is just south of Hyde Park, the area in which the Obamas lived for a short time before Barack became president.

The pastor of the mostly black congregation, Courtney Lewis, reportedly shut and locked the doors and refused to allow the officers to gain entry to the building, Todd Starnes reported.

Pastor Lewis told Starnes that he felt like he was confronting “the Soviet-style KGB” as the officers pounded on his doors and demanded entry to shut the church down.

“Thankfully, our doors were locked as a normal safety precaution we take each service to protect our members from the escalating gun violence in Chicago,” Lewis said.

Ahmaud Arbery Slaying Becomes Part of Political Debate in Georgia

By Greg Bluestein

https://www.ajc.com/online/contacts/greg-bluestein/JxOK4LRJGFLasabhP2TohJ/

Ahmaud Arbery’s shooting death has shifted Georgia’s political conversation and renewed a push to impose stiffer penalties on crimes rooted in racial bias at a time when voters are readying to cast ballots in primary races and lawmakers prepare to return to the state Capitol.

The Feb. 23 death of the unarmed black jogger in southeast Georgia punctuated concerns that many African American leaders and their allies have raised for years surrounding killings of black teens and men. These leaders are issuing fresh demands to adopt a stalled hate-crimes measure and take more sweeping action when state legislators reconvene next month.

Anger

Is anger unChristian?

I felt angry at someone bullying insecure people today, intentionally trying to make them feel suicidal, and was relishing the idea of them receiving justice, but then I realized that I myself had made someone else also feel bad through my own insensitivity only just yesterday. I wasn’t being sadistic, but the end result was the same.
