European court of human rights: Moscow responsible for murder of civilians, and looting and burning of homes

Russia committed a series of human rights violations during its war with Georgia in 2008, the European court of human rights ruled on Thursday, saying Moscow was responsible for the murder of Georgian civilians, and the looting and burning of their homes.

In a landmark judgment, the court said the Kremlin was guilty of unlawfully rounding up ethnic Georgians and their subsequent “inhuman and degrading treatment”. This included the torture of Georgian prisoners of war and the expulsion of Georgian villagers from their homes in South Ossetia.

As Covid-19 cases keep rising in France, the government has come under criticism for not rolling out the vaccination program fast enough. This week, authorities widened the list of people considered priority: patients with cancer are now eligible to get shots. But as FRANCE 24’s team reveals, French doctors are unsure of the Covid-19 vaccine’s effectiveness when it comes to patients with immune system problems, such as cancer, AIDS and other diseases. Indeed, clinical trials for the vaccines did not focus on immunocompromised patients.

'Portland Police Clash with Protesters as Joe Biden Signs First Executive Orders'

While the Inauguration Day unrest many feared did not come to fruition, small pockets of protesters were seen clashing with authorities as Joe Biden signed his first executive orders.

Eight people were arrested in Portland, where police and members of the National Guard used tear gas to disperse demonstrators. Around one hundred Black Lives Matter activists marched through the city, holding a banner that read: “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge”. Witnesses said far-left group Antifa was behind the smashing of windows at Oregon Democratic headquarters.

It comes as the new president signed 15 executive orders, including a mask mandate for federal buildings, reversals on Donald Trump’s immigration policies and rejoining the Paris Agreement.

What happens when the former leader of the free world gets deplatformed? We’re going to find out.

Donald Trump is out of the White House. And he’s been kicked off of the world’s biggest tech platforms. Now what?

We don’t yet have any idea what Trump really plans to do now that he’s a private citizen (he probably doesn’t either). We also don’t know what will happen to Trump’s reach and power without access to Twitter and the rest of his social media bullhorns.

In the past, we’ve seen big — but compared to Trump, comparatively tiny — right-wing figures diminish considerably once they’ve been deplatformed. But none of them used to be the leader of the free world.

“Trump is going to be an interesting case because he is so prominent,” says Renee DiResta, a researcher at the Stanford Internet Observatory. “He’s not a fringe figure popular within a passionate-yet-small audience. He [was] the president of the United States.”

So it may be useful to look at the experiences of some of the fringe figures who have had their social media plugs pulled over the last few years, like Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones — who, not coincidentally, helped set the stage for Trump and the post-truth world he created for the last four years. For now, though, we can only make guesses about what happens to Trump without a platform.

A few things we are certain about right now: Trump is unlikely to command an audience — at least, directly — on mainstream social media services for a long time.

Although Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey posted a mournful thread last week about his company’s decision to boot Trump in the aftermath of the Capitol riot, Twitter says the ban is permanent. (A Twitter comms rep did suggest to me, perhaps cheekily, that Trump could try the company’s appeals page.)

Mark Zuckerberg hasn’t said Trump would be banned from Facebook and Instagram forever; instead, he has said the ban would last at least “until the peaceful transition of power is complete.” But informed people I’ve talked to at the company say there won’t be any change now that Joe Biden is the 46th president, and they can’t imagine a scenario where something does change.

YouTube, which waited several days after its Big Tech peers to ban Trump, and initially announced a ban that would run through the inauguration, has in theory given Trump the most hope: On Tuesday, the company said it would extend the ban another week instead of indefinitely banning him. But it’s hard to imagine YouTube breaking from the rest of its peers and letting Trump back in.

More to the point, while Trump’s campaign spent heavily on YouTube, and he used it to broadcast his farewell address (via the official White House account, which YouTube said was okay), Donald Trump has yet to show any real interest in the video site. The same goes for Snapchat — which has officially banned Trump. TikTok, meanwhile, didn’t officially ban Trump, but it pulled lots of Trump-related content off the service (which, despite Trump’s efforts to ban it, is still very much alive in the US).

We also know that, in the past, deplatforming particular figures from social media does indeed appear to have decreased their overall presence and power.

Both Yiannopoulos (a self-styled provocateur banned from Twitter after a string of racist tweets in 2016; Facebook followed up in 2019) and Jones (a conspiracy theorist best known for arguing that the Sandy Hook school shootings were were a hoax and who was banned from most of mainstream social media in 2018) downplayed the consequences of getting kicked off social media, but both have clearly suffered.

A year after he lost Twitter, Yiannopoulos complained that his ability to make a living trolling libs had vanished. Jones is still yelling loudly about wild-eyed conspiracies, but he appears to have lost a significant slice of his audience to the QAnon cult, which is why his most public appearance in years came after the Capitol Hill riot, when he raved (in a viral Twitter video he didn’t post) that QAnon’s warped conspiracies were a bridge too far.

Just as telling: While Trump used to embrace Jones publicly, over the last year he became publicly affectionate for QAnon, and ended up peddling the cult’s conspiracy theories after he lost his election last fall.

And yes, it’s possible that Trump, like Jones and Yiannopoulos, could take up residence on the barely moderated social network Parler (which itself has been deplatformed, at least for now, by Amazon, Apple, and Google). He could also head over to messaging apps like Signal and Telegram, which have been booming in recent days, but those aren’t likely to be satisfying replacements for him.

That’s in part because Signal and Telegram are fundamentally built for individual or group messaging, as opposed to the broadcast blast to millions that Trump loved. And Parler has been marketed as a safe haven for angry conservatives and Trump fans — which means that, in the best-case scenario, Trump could use it to reach his hardcore supporters but not the rest of the world.

Which is terrible news for Trump and anyone else who craves attention, said Jared Holt, a visiting research fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab: You can’t pick a fight with the libs (or the media, or John Bolton, or anyone else) if they’re not around to fight.

“Trump has really emerged as a deity to his most devoted supporters, and one of the things they like about him so much is that he fights the culture war alongside them,” he says. “Losing the platform where that war happens takes away that thrill.”

That lack of conflict also underlines the knock-on effect of deplatforming for Trump: While he’ll still command some degree of attention from the press — especially if he appears to be a credible candidate for a second White House run or demonstrates the ability to help Trump-friendly candidates win their local races — a provocation on Parler isn’t the same as a tantrum on Twitter. If the tree doesn’t fall in the mainstream media forest, it’s easier to pretend it didn’t make a sound, and it’s easier to not assign a reporter to write it up. (Also: The person knocking down the tree is no longer the most powerful man in the world.)

One flip side to all of this: While deplatforming can reduce Trump’s overall reach, it could certainly make his remaining followers more ardent. Watching the most powerful technology companies in the world act at the same time, if not in unison, against Donald Trump has, for his followers, likely bolstered his claim that tech companies were working against him — and his followers.

In this case, Holt says, “A base of voters that’s been told that there’s a global tech industry conspiracy against them will likely be more hardened in their beliefs” when they see what’s happened to Trump. “And if Trump was right about that, was he right about the election stuff?”

Which gets at what we really ought to care about when we make predictions about what happens to Trump’s reach in his post-Twitter era: What happens to the people he used to reach? Regardless of whether they follow him to a different platform, they’re still going to hear from … somebody on mainstream social media. And if it’s not Trump, who’s going to fill that void?

Во вторник, 19 января, Евгений Пригожин прокомментировал задержание и арест Алексея Навального, который недавно вернулся из Германии в Россию. Развернутый комментарий был опубликован в официальной группе пресс-службы компании "Конкорд".

По словам бизнесмена, Навальный пытался стать политиком из желания заработать "легкие" деньги. "Навальный изначально пытался стать политиком, чтобы срубить бабла по-легкому. И для этого надо вспомнить его первые дела с расхищением государственного и частного имущества, а затем с банальным мошенничеством", – напомнил Пригожин.

Также бизнесмен уточнил, что, по его мнению, глава ФБК получает финансирование от западных спецслужб. Они же взамен контролируют деятельность Навального. "Так вот, такого обычного мошенника-негодяя враги нашей страны, западные спецслужбы "прокачали", ввалили в него кучу денег и попытались сделать из него политическую фигуру", – отметил Пригожин.

Евгений Пригожин подчеркнул, что расследования Алексея Навального строятся по определённой схеме и нацелены на дискредитацию российской власти, где "факты" откровенно "притянуты за уши". "Посмотрите на его псевдорасследования, большая часть из них об обычных коммерсантах, которые заработали свои деньги, как я, например, а заодно в ходе развития бизнеса давали работу десяткам тысяч человек. Затем подмешайте туда малую толику чиновников. И всё это за уши притянуто к руководству страны", – обратил внимание бизнесмен.

Пригожин также отметил, что Навальный вернулся в Россию, потому что западные страны не слишком в нём заинтересованы: "В Америке на содержании Леша не нужен, да и денег он хочет много, а из-за всяких Ющенко и Саакашвили и так уже 51 штат переполнен".

Кроме того, предприниматель напомнил о своих судебных разбирательствах с блогером: "Я подал на Навального в суд. И выигрываю все процессы, заставляя этого негодяя отвечать за свои слова. Их я бы выиграл и в Америке, и в Европе, и в любом другом суде, потому что я прав".

Что касается ареста Навального, Евгений Пригожин пришел к выводу, что глава ФБК должен ответить за свои преступления согласно Уголовному кодексу. По мнению бизнесмена, главной ошибкой Навального стало его обращение к Евросоюзу с просьбой ввести санкции против экономики РФ.

Pfizer to Cuomo: HHS Approval Needed to Sell Covid Vaccine to NY

By: Jennifer Peltz

Frustrated by the flow of coronavirus vaccine from the federal government, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday floated the idea of buying shots for New Yorkers directly from one of the vaccine makers, Pfizer.

The idea seemed far from a sure bet, with the pharmaceutical giant saying it would need federal approval to sell to state governments. If that were to happen, the cost and amount have yet to be be discussed.

Regardless, Cuomo said he felt compelled to broach the idea as his state, like many others, faces tough vaccine math. At the current pace of federal vaccine shipments to New York, it could take six months or more to get shots to the 7 million residents already eligible under federal guidelines, let alone the roughly 12 million other New Yorkers. Residents have been scrambling to try to get the shots, with many getting shut out and upset.

“My job as governor of New York is to pursue every avenue, and that’s what I’m doing,” the Democratic governor said at a virtual news conference as he released a letter he’d written to New York-based Pfizer about his idea. He told the company it “could help us save lives right here in New York.”

Pfizer Inc., which developed one of the current vaccines with German partner BioNTech, said in a statement that it appreciated Cuomo’s praise and was open to working with the federal Health and Human Services Department on getting the shots as quickly as possible to as many Americans as it could.

“However, before we can sell directly to state governments, HHS would need to approve that proposal,” the company said.

An HHS spokesperson said via email that Cuomo is “trying to circumvent a long-planned federal allocation system by attempting to cut to the front of the line at the expense of fellow jurisdictions.”

The spokesperson said the top priority for HHS is “maximizing the availability of safe and effective vaccines in a manner which is responsible, fair and equitable for all Americans, not just to those in New York State.”

Under the current system, HHS allocates vaccine doses to states and ships them. The federal Food and Drug Administration’s emergency-based authorization for the Pfizer vaccine specifies that it will be supplied “as directed by the U.S. government.”

The federal government has been paying $19.50 per dose for the Pfizer vaccine and has ordered 200 million doses so far, enough to give the two-shot regimen to 100 million people. Other nations around the world have also placed orders.

NYPD Commish Slams Protesters; Says They Don’t Represent MLK

By: Jared Evan

Recently, an NYPD officer reportedly drew his weapon after being confronted by the demonstrators for not wearing a mask during the pandemic, and this has spurred a new wave of BLM anti- police protests.

BLM have taken to the street once more in NYC and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea slammed the mostly young and white social justice radicals as the “antithesis” of Martin Luther King Jr as they once more caused mayhem in Brooklyn on MLK day.

“On such a day that we’re honoring Martin Luther King, [we have] demonstrations that consist of violence, throwing bottles, breaking property, calling for the death of officers [and] to burn the city down,” Shea said.

“I really can’t think of anything that is more [the] antithesis of what Martin Luther King stood for. I think it’s a disgrace. And it’s time that everyone calls this out.”

The NY post reported Twenty-nine people were arrested at the Monday night demonstration — all of whom were released with summonses or desk appearance tickets, according to cops.

The Barclay’s Center, in the Atlantic Ave area of Brooklyn, has become a popular spot for the predominantly white, college age BLM brigade to gather and abuse the NYPD.

NYPD previously arrested nine Black Lives Matter protesters in Brooklyn Saturday night. The protesters came to call for the firing of an NYPD officer who pulled a handgun on BLM protesters earlier in the week.

A large group of BLM protesters gathered on Saturday night near the Barclays Center to call for the firing of an officer who drew his service weapon during another protest earlier in the week, the New York Post reported. The officer reportedly drew his weapon after being confronted by the demonstrators for not wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The video shows the officer appearing to hold his pistol close to his body and pointed safely to the ground. He reholsters after assessing the situation and draws what appears to be pepper spray from his duty belt. He later deploys an ASP (expandable baton) as the crowd becomes more aggressive.

Virtue signaling over masks is one of the most popular trends of the embolden and radicalized young urban leftist. Leftists love to approach cops and citizens who may have their mask off for even a second and begin to verbally assault, harass and sometimes film the alleged “super spreader”. Mental illness has begun to manifest itself especially among political extremists as a result of the pandemic.
