Why The Left Hates It When You Point Out We're 'A Republic'
  • Because democracy is an abstract name for a system and republic is the more concrete result of that system, democracy is frequently used when the emphasis is on the system itself. We could say that democracy is to republic as monarchyis to kingdom.

  • UK millionaires are fleeing Britain in their thousands
  • A record number of millionaires could leave the United Kingdom this year as political turmoil and the potential for higher taxes under a future Labour government reduce the appeal of what was once among the top destinations for the rich.

    COULD leave

    POTENTIAL for higher taxes

    As many as 9,500 people with at least $1 million in liquid, investable assets, will leave the country, more than double the number that left in 2023, according to provisional estimates contained in a report Tuesday by migration advisers Henley & Partners.

  • Life Wirral School - Post Panorama Airing

    Im watching the Panorama airing, decided to check out what this scumbag school had to say for themselves. Their statement is infuriating

    > An undercover investigator failed in her basic safeguarding duties to report significant concerns and had she have done so on day one there would be no television programme

    You have ran this school for years, what the fuck

    > As a team of highly respected education specialists we see no justification whatsoever allowing such incidents to continue; the safeguarding of the children should have come first rather than a television show

    YOU ONLY CARE BECAUSE IT WAS ON A TV SHOW

    had it been reported like you say, it would have been brushed under the rug

    Shut this school down. Jail these cunts.

    edit rereading I see youre asking about a potential car for the future.

    I found very little info- except this, which hints at having network connectivity without a simcard (and also discusses swapping sims). But I found very little else

    https://intotomorrow.com/can-you-swap-the-sim-card-in-your-car/

    A second link about someone asking whether they should remove the card before returning the car. The advice says to take it out. Which implies to me, for this car at least, itll function without a sim

    > Conservatives Quickly Turn Against “Idiot” Marjorie Taylor Greene > > The Georgia Republican is fast falling out of favor for her opposition to the Ukraine aid bill. > > Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s failed fight to end aid to Ukraine, and her sort-of-serious crusade against House Speaker Mike Johnson, has cost her the support of right-wing media. > > The Sunday front page of the New York Post, owned by the conservative Murdoch family, was the latest outlet to attack Greene, invoking the “Moscow Marjorie” nickname coined by former representative Ken Buck. > > Fox News, another arm of the Murdoch media empire, had already taken aim at the Georgia Republican last week, with columnist Liz Peek calling her an “idiot” and saying she needs to “turn all that bombastic self-serving showmanship and drama queen energy on Democrats.” This follows an editorial last month from The Wall Street Journal, also in the Murdoch portfolio, that called Greene “Rep. Mayhem Taylor Greene” and accused her and her allies of being “most interested in TV hits and internet donors.”  > > Even a non-Murdoch outlet is on the attack, as conservative Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Debra Saunders demanded to know “who put Marjorie Taylor Greene in charge?”

    The full story about House Conservatives Threaten to Block FISA Renewal. Know the facts. Reveal the bias. Verity.

    cross-posted from: https://fedinews.net/m/ImproveTheNews/t/6522

    > House Conservatives Threaten to Block FISA Renewal > > * A faction of the US House Republican majority is threatening to block the renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which allows the government to collect Americans' communications if they're connected to foreigners abroad. FOX News (LR: 4 CP: 4) > * Those opposed to the bill, including GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz and Anna Paulina Luna of Florida and Tim Burchett of Tennessee, are particularly focused on including a warrant requirement to conduct such surveillance. The Hill > * The FISA database, which many progressive Democrats also oppose, was reportedly improperly searched by the FBI 278K times over several years. However, the FBI and US Dept. of Justice say it's critical for combating drug smuggling, cybercrime, and cross-border crime. Reuters.com > * While Pres. Joe Biden wants it reauthorized, former Pres. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for 2024, said to "kill it" because, he alleged, it was "illegally used" to spy on his campaign. However, it was Title I of FISA that the FBI used to improperly spy on Trump campaign advisor Carter Paige. Forbes (LR: 3 CP: 5) > * If Democrats vote against the renewal, Republicans can only afford to lose two members to win a majority. The Hill > > Pro-establishment narrative: > > * Section 702 has been a crucial tool for law enforcement and there are more than enough FBI policies to ensure the government can fight crime while safeguarding Americans' privacy. A warrant requirement, however, would prevent the government from efficiently doing this and put national security at risk. > WASHINGTON POST (LR: 2 CP: 5) > > Establishment-critical narrative: > > * In addition to leaving out a warrant requirement, this bill expands the government's Section 702 capabilities — making it too easy to violate citizens' right to privacy. Surveillance hawks seem determined to end privacy in America as we know it. > CENTER FOR DEMOCRACY AND TECHNOLOGY
