Nobody reads this far down right? I'll just shill for J-Novel Club a bit because I love that they sell DRM free Ebooks. Go buy the series from their website.

Der Publizist Jürgen Elsässer kämpft für den »Sturz des Regimes« und schwärmt für Putin. Nun geht das Bundesinnenministerium nach SPIEGEL-Informationen gegen sein rechtsextremes Magazin und dessen Onlinekanäle vor.

Das Bundesinnenministerium von Nancy Faeser (SPD) hat das rechtsextreme »Compact«-Magazin

verboten. Nach SPIEGEL-Informationen durchsuchen Polizisten seit dem frühen Dienstagmorgen Häuser und Büros in Brandenburg, Sachsen, Hessen und Sachsen-Anhalt, darunter Räume des Medienunternehmens in Falkensee bei Berlin.

Das von dem Publizisten Jürgen Elsässer geleitete Magazin richte sich gegen die verfassungsmäßige Ordnung, heißt es in der Verbotsverfügung des Innenministeriums. Bei der Razzia soll neben Dokumenten und Datenträgern auch das Vermögen der Compact-Magazin GmbH beschlagnahmt werden.

Das seit 2010 erscheinende Monatsmagazin gilt als eine der wichtigsten Publikationen der neurechten Szene. Die Macher unterhalten enge Verbindungen zum völkischen Flügel der AfD, der rechtsextremen Kleinpartei »Freie Sachsen« und zu Aktivisten der »Identitären Bewegung«. Immer wieder fiel »Compact« zudem durch die Verbreitung von Verschwörungsmythen, prorussischer Propaganda und antisemitischer Narrative auf.

Clarence Thomas has struck again.

To his impressive list of recent supreme court victories – abolishing the right to an abortion, eradicating affirmative action, undermining federal regulations, and more – the ultraconservative justice can now add thwarting the criminal prosecution of Donald Trump for hoarding classified documents.

On Monday, Judge Aileen Cannon astonished the judicial world by dismissing the case. She did so based on a widely discredited legal argument that the special counsel who brought the prosecution, Jack Smith, had been improperly appointed.

The argument, initially aired by the former US president’s lawyers, had received scant support in judicial circles, given that stretching back a quarter of a century it has been repeatedly rejected by the courts. But there was one jurist who encouraged Cannon to pursue such contrarian thinking: Thomas.


The chief spokesman for the European Union’s executive arm, Eric Mamer, announced the move Monday evening, saying that it will send senior civil servants rather than commissioners to informal meetings of ministers held in Hungary, which holds the bloc’s rotating presidency.

He cited “recent developments marking the start of the Hungarian Presidency” as the reason for the move in a post on the X social media site. The commission will also skip the traditional visit of its commissioners to the country holding the presidency.

The move follows a decision by Sweden, Finland, Poland and three Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to skip the informal meetings during Hungary’s presidency, which lasts through the end of the year.

Orban blindsided western allies working to present a united front on Ukraine when he traveled to Moscow earlier this month to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, and then to Beijing to see President Xi Jinping.

The move by the commission doesn’t apply to a planned informal summit of leaders in Budapest in November, or the regular meetings of ministers in Brussels and Luxembourg during the year.


Just from "a quick query" by the admin.

Just name the movies you think everyone should have seen at least once in their lifetime. Go!


Evan Wright, the award-winning journalist who wrote about US subcultures in the book Generation Kill, which he helped adapt into the HBO miniseries of the same name, has died aged 59.

Wright died by suicide on Friday at a home in Los Angeles, a report by the Los Angeles County medical examiner said.

He appeared in the Max documentary Teen Torture, Inc, in which he spoke about his time in the Seed, a controversial “scared straight” program for children in Florida.

In interviews over the years, Wright spoke about being sent there after his mother’s best friend and her husband were murdered by their son in 1972, leading to his mother’s breakdown. He began to act out and was expelled from school aged 13 and held on drug charges after he pretended to sell marijuana, which was actually catnip. He was then sent to the Seed.

Liquipedia and official website show the games will start in <2 hours. Also it seems both Falcons vs XG, and GG vs Entity are being played at the same time


Peter Buxtun, the whistleblower who revealed that the U.S. government allowed hundreds of Black men in rural Alabama to go untreated for syphilis in what became known as the Tuskegee study, has died. He was 86.

Buxtun died May 18 of Alzheimer’s disease in Rocklin, California, according to his attorney, Minna Fernan.

Buxtun is revered as a hero to public health scholars and ethicists for his role in bringing to light the most notorious medical research scandal in U.S. history. Documents that Buxtun provided to The Associated Press, and its subsequent investigation and reporting, led to a public outcry that ended the study in 1972.

The main change in 7.01 is the release of the first raid tier (not the Savage, that'll be in two weeks with 7.05), and also a bunch of potency tweaks, so see if your jobs are impacted.
