I didn't create this board trying to compete with >>>/bestpol/ I have no complaints with it, I've just been meaning to start a /pol/ style board of my own for a while, ever since 8kun launched with /pol/ absent. I obviously gave up on 8kun but now that I found 9chan I thought why not. I'm not entirely sure what I'm trying to achieve with this but maybe it can have its uses.
Things to do:
Help me establish the rules,
Help me with the custom CSS,
My adjustments: https://9chan.tw/newpol/style.txt
Help me with the banners, upload them (if they're original) or provide me with ideas or material, I got Photoshop and can do stuff provided it's not too complicated.
Let me know if you have any other suggestions on how to improve the board.

On the board URI: 4/new/ (news) was 4/pol/'s predecessor, I'd like this board to have an emphasis on news, but you can post anything that's /pol/ related, or not necessarily related if you think it's noteworthy.

A coronavirus general

Reinfection is possible, making mandatory vaccination and immunity certificates redundant.

>The World Health Organization warned that coronavirus antibodies can't guarantee long-term COVID-19 immunity for recovered patients or former asymptomatic carriers.
>In a press conference on Friday reported by multiple outlets, officials said serological tests, also known as antibody tests, can show if the person previously contracted the virus, but there is no evidence it can find if a person is immune to the virus infection.


>Dr. Jon Santiago, who is also a state representative, works in the ER at Boston Medical Center, told CBS Boston that hospital workers had noticed a concerning trend of repeat patients who often require more intensive care than they did during their initial treatment.
>"Over the last week we've seen an interesting phenomenon where people who've been initially diagnosed a week ago, they're coming back to the hospital sicker and often requiring a ventilator or the ICU,"...

Patients may be left with irreversible lung damage.

>The tissue lesions can be a sign of chronic lung disease. Similar damage has been documented in survivors of SARS and MERS, respiratory diseases caused by coronaviruses similar to the SARS-CoV-2 virus behind COVID-19. Long-term studies of SARS patients have shown that roughly a third of people who recovered from severe bouts were left with permanent lung damage. In the case of MERS, one study found about a third of people who recovered from a serious infection still had signs of lung damage about seven months later.
>But while initial lung images indicate that SARS and MARS typically set into just one lung, COVID-19 appears to be more likely to afflict both lungs right away. In 75 of the 90 patients admitted to Huazhong University Hospital with COVID-19 pneumonia from January 16 to February 17, damage was seen across both lungs, Wang and colleagues report. CT scans taken before hospital discharge revealed that 42 out of 70 patients displayed the type of lesions around the alveoli that are more likely to develop into scars.

Coronavirus can cause heart damage.

>While the focus of the COVID-19 pandemic has been on respiratory problems and securing enough ventilators, doctors on the front lines are grappling with a new medical mystery.
>In addition to lung damage, many COVID-19 patients are also developing heart problems—and dying of cardiac arrest.
>As more data comes in from China and Italy, as well as Washington state and New York, more cardiac experts are coming to believe the COVID-19 virus can infect the heart muscle. An initial study found cardiac damage in as many as 1 in 5 patients, leading to heart failure and death even among those who show no signs of respiratory distress.

Coronavirus can cause strokes.

>Young and middle-aged people, barely sick with covid-19, are dying of strokes
>Doctors sound alarm about patients in their 30s and 40s left debilitated or dead. Some didn’t even know they were infected.

Coronavirus can affect the nervous system.

>The most characteristic symptom of patients with COVID‐19 is respiratory distress, and most of the patients admitted to the intensive care could not breathe spontaneously. Additionally, some patients with COVID‐19 also showed neurologic signs, such as headache, nausea, and vomiting. Increasing evidence shows that coronaviruses are not always confined to the respiratory tract and that they may also invade the central nervous system inducing neurological diseases. The infection of SARS‐CoV has been reported in the brains from both patients and experimental animals, where the brainstem was heavily infected.


>As case numbers of COVID-19 continue to rise around the world, we are starting to see an increasing number of reports of neurological symptoms. Some studies report that over a third of patients show neurological symptoms.

Coronavirus can cause kidney and testicular damage.

>ACE2 highly expresses in renal tubular cells, Leydig cells and cells in seminiferous ducts in testis. Therefore, virus might directly bind to such ACE2 positive cells and damage the kidney and testicular tissue of patients. Our results indicate that renal function evaluation and special care should be performed in 2019-nCoV patients during clinical work, because of the kidney damage caused by virus and antiviral drugs with certain renal toxicity. In addition, due to the potential pathogenicity of the virus to testicular tissues, clinicians should pay attention to the risk of testicular lesions in patients during hospitalization and later clinical follow-up, especially the assessment and appropriate intervention in young patients' fertility.

>Justice Department prosecutors expect to file an antitrust lawsuit against Google in the coming months focused on the company’s dominance in online advertising and search, two individuals familiar with the discussions said Friday.
>DOJ lawyers and state antitrust officials met online Friday and discussed contours of the expected complaint, according to the people, who weren’t authorized to speak on the record because the investigation is ongoing. People knowledgeable about the case had previously described litigation as likely.
>The suit is expected to involve allegations that the search giant has monopolized the advertising technology market. It is also expected to include allegations that Google has taken steps to extend its monopoly over search, such as through contracts with Apple and cellphone makers who use the Android operating system that require it be the default search engine.

false flag confirmed?


>The withdrawal of $475,000 in cash by the man who killed 22 Nova Scotians in April matches the method the RCMP uses to send money to confidential informants and agents, sources say.
>Gabriel Wortman, who is responsible for the largest mass killing in Canadian history, withdrew the money from a Brink’s depot in Dartmouth, N.S., on March 30, stashing a carryall filled with hundred-dollar bills in the trunk of his car.
>According to a source close to the police investigation the money came from CIBC Intria, a subsidiary of the chartered bank that handles currency transactions.
>Sources in both banking and the RCMP say the transaction is consistent with how the RCMP funnels money to its confidential informants and agents, and is not an option available to private banking customers.

this is some trippy shit, more elaborate than the usual LARPs
I am a member of a prominent family you may have heard of. In months to come, you will experience many changes that you will not fully desire, but over time, will begrudgingly come to accept.

Ask me questions, and I will respond to those of value.

>Despite the elite families' plans leaking out to the public decades ago, not much has been done to counter them. If anything, the majority of the population seems to be happy to go with the flow dictated by the top. Well played.

If you were aware of the ways we can counter resistance you would understand that, save for a miracle, there is no stopping what is to occur. So much that you might consider it prophecy.

I admire that you are humble, still. Many are unable to cope with the future, and resort to lashing out.


This is the first question of value in this thread. But you ask for hindsight, when you should be asking for foresight.

What can I give you about what has happened that anyone with the capability cannot already understand? And if you ask for this, what event do you want regarded?

>How can you not expect that these families will try to eat each other if their domination plan succeed ?

This is where there are no guarantees. Either agreement and a division of power will be made, or a power struggle will ensue. Mechanisms are already being put into place to solve these disagreements diplomatically. The construction of an overarching grid controlled by AI is already underway, and when it is finished it will be used to ensure all human behavior acts in a cohesive and organized fashion.

We will have power over the AI, but in a limited fashion. Think of it like this, each family will receive a key, and to open the door (change the AI) all families must be in agreement to hand over their key. We still cannot fully predict what will happen in the future, so long as humans control it there will always be room for calamity, but we are working on it.


I do not wish to encourage you, so I shall give you both a single reply.

Your lashing out, it does no good for you or us. If you wish to survive in the system to come, you must redirect that anger towards self-improvement. You may cry and bemoan what has occurred to you, and what you have lost, but where shall that path lead?

Now place yourself in our positions. By solidifying your power, you are doing what is best for your family. The expense of others matters not, as this reality is a reality of the survival of the fittest. Are you the fittest? How can you become the fittest?

>what do you people believe in?
>how do you cope with death?

A number among us believe that your consciousness is transferred through your bloodline, which means that keeping it pure is of the greatest concern. Others, such as myself, follow the rules of nature, which is inherently cruel. Those who are fit to survive will, and those that are not will not. The people on here are mostly the will-nots. Whatever merit or otherwise has landed you here, it has given you a disadvantage towards your survival.

Now, I could go into spirituality, but I do not care much to speak of the esoteric with people who understand so little about it.

>Will I be able to live in peace with my family if I am a good goy and hold my tongue?

The system to come will be made in such a way to ensure peace. Contrary to many of your delusions, the existence of many nation states, all with world-destroying weaponry is not a good thing. It is the opposite.

Say that our "cabal" ceased to exist, and all of your countries regained your freedom. What would you do with it? Blow each other up? Have you taken a moment to look at the many wars of Europe? How willing to destroy their continent they were over simple territorial disputes and a lust for power?

No, no no. You cannot be allowed to rule yourselves. With the technology you now possess, it would lead only to cataclysm.

>So I want to know, can i at least enjoy being alone with my family while the world burns?

The world does not burn. The world order as it exists today will burn.

Chinese Intervention

It is a FACT by now that the current SARS-Cov2/Covid-19 infection has originated in China.
However, China will not do anything to shut down these Babyboiling, Catfrying, Maggot thawing markets.
These markets are by far the most nasty places to buy food. Of course the Chinese people themselves may buy less
from these markets. Their decision makes all sorts of sense because the people who ate raw bats in 2019 were guaranteed a deadly strain and often died shortly after consuming the infected bat.

Here is how I imagine the changes to the markets...

>"Herro Anon, you rant some Bassoop"
>No I rather not take my chances
>"Noor re no use raw baz anymore. See it wam. It wam"
>Anon looks down and the bat soup looks exactly the same
>Chinaman goes and chucks the bat soup in a microwave in a fit of rage
>Chinaman takes out bat soup as fast as humanly possiboru
>"Si? It now hot and wam. It goo bat soop"
>Anon leaves and Chinaman finds another victim

Rinse and repeat. These Chinese people are doing nothing to decrease the chances of another
SARS-Cov2/Covid-19 pandemic. I hope the Covid-20 spreads through the Chinese KFC so there would no way to avoid the infection.

Is this the answer to the NPC question? Where could I find more info on this?

>The pneumatics ("spiritual", from Greek πνεῦμα, "spirit") were, in Gnosticism, the highest order of humans, the other two orders being psychics and hylics ("matter"). A pneumatic saw itself as escaping the doom of the material world via the transcendent knowledge of Sophia's Divine Spark within the soul.
>They conceive, then, of three kinds of men, spiritual, material, and animal . . . The material goes, as a matter of course, into corruption. The animal, if it make choice of the better part, finds repose in the intermediate place; but if the worse, it too shall pass into destruction. But they assert that the spiritual principles which have been sown by Achamoth, being disciplined and nourished here from that time until now in righteous souls (because when given forth by her they were yet but weak), at last attaining to perfection, shall be given as brides to the angels of the Saviour, while their animal souls of necessity rest for ever with the Demiurge in the intermediate place. And again subdividing the animal souls themselves, they say that some are by nature good, and others by nature evil. The good are those who become capable of receiving the [spiritual] seed [and becoming pneumatic]; the evil by nature are those who are never able to receive that seed [and become hylic].
>In the New Testament a contrast is made between the psychikoi and the pneumatikoi, in the former of whom the mere animal soul predominates, the latter exhibiting the working of a higher spiritual nature (Jude 19; 1 Cor. 2:14–15; compare also 15:44–46). In the Valentinian system this contrast is sharpened, and is made to depend on an original difference of nature between the two classes of men, a mythical theory being devised which professed to account for the origin of the different elements in men's nature; the psychic element being something higher and better than the mere material element, but immeasurably inferior to the pneumatic.

>Google has made massive cuts to its diversity and inclusion initiatives, with current and former employees saying the moves were meant to shield the company from conservative backlash, NBC News reported on Wednesday.
>Since 2018, several popular programs aimed at teaching employees about implicit bias and how to have difficult conversations about race and inequality have been scaled back, while the team responsible for the programs has gotten smaller — due to outsourcing and Google opting not to refill positions after employees leave — according to NBC News.
>"One of the major motivations for cutting Sojourn [one of Google's diversity initiatives] is that the company doesn't want to be seen as anti-conservative," an employee told NBC News. "It does not want to invite lawsuits or claims by right-wing white employees about Google discriminating against them."

What does they have in common? Could our planet truly be ruled by ancient Mars refugees? Could this alien civilization from Mars chose the Jews to be their agents? The pattern is clearly there and the CIA documents have confirmed that there are intelligent forms of energy you can possibly encounter when the time-space boundaries are exceeded. Exactly the same things has happened to Kyle Odom when he reached out-of-body state of consciousness. He said he saw them, the ancient civilization from Mars, that it's them who's behind the NWO.

Several years ago, the CIA conducted experiments on altered consciousness. When time-space was overcome, they were able to explore Mars, as it was a million years ago. They confirmed that Mars was indeed inhabited and that Martian civilization was on the verge of extinction. So it would seems like these Martians were able to reach Earth somehow.

>They underlined in the docu that these are surgeries and processes that can not be reversed later. Docu won awards, but of course trans rights groups and SWJ were outraged.
>Turns out now after the docu the applications for gender reassignment has plummeted by 65% in Stockholm and more than 25% in the rest of the country.

>An internal review discovered 372 of these patients – some 35 per cent – exhibited ‘moderate or severe autistic traits.'
>Yet despite the potential significance of the figures – and amid growing concerns that youngsters with developmental and mental health problems are being railroaded into medical treatment for ‘gender dysphoria’ – the finding has never been highlighted by the clinic since its publication in June.

“Emergency” Covid Measures

'''“Emergency” Covid Measures: Are We Witnessing the Collapse of Individual Rights and Democracy?'''

> ''April 27, 2020''

> '''''In Global Life-Death Struggle, Democracy Changes Course'''''

> ''By Jamie Dettmer VOA''

> Outside wartime nothing like it as ever been seen before in modern Western history. The lockdowns by democratic states with their draconian constraints on civil liberties and private enterprise fly in the face of an historical progression that’s seen the size and roles of governments shrunk and individual liberty boosted.

> As governments mobilize resources and coerce people in a life-and-death struggle to contain the coronavirus and mitigate its impact, the state has been unbound.

> People have been confined indoors, police powers have been expanded, data-surveillance increased and businesses shuttered. All with little debate.

> The size and scope of the state’s role in the economy prompted by the coronavirus dwarfs anything mounted to handle the 2008 financial crash. Britain, France and other European countries have offered so far loans and subsidies worth around 15% of their GDPs. America’s stimulus package is at around 10% of GDP.

> The U.S. fiscal stimulus package was dubbed by Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s economic adviser, “the single largest Main Street assistance program in the history of the United States.”

> In France, President Emmanuel Macron’s government not only passed legislation giving it the legal right to control the movement of people, it also seized the power to manage prices and requisition goods. In the United States, President Trump has used the Defense Production Act to prevent the export of surgical masks and gloves.

> State power is now at its most intrusive since the Second World War. For die-hard advocates of free markets and limited government the abrupt change in direction is horrifying. For others it is less so, even something to be embraced, a harbinger of the future, a turning point that will end up re-reordering their countries.

> For those on the progressive left, the reemergence of state power is a vindication of long-held beliefs that market-based models for social organization fail the majority of people. They hope the crisis will provide the opportunity to refashion along less market-oriented and more socialist lines. In the United States, supporters of Bernie Sanders say the crisis has exposed for all to see America’s threadbare social-safety net and the need for a government-run single-payer health care system.

> Last week, Britain’s former Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said that the government’s massive and unprecedented underwriting of the British economy and labor market vindicated his pre-coronavirus election manifesto, the most left-wing program ever presented by the modern Labour Party.

> On Europe’s far right, too, there is self-preening as well as hope that the eventual political outcome from the coronavirus will be along lines more to their liking. A future of strong nation states and powerful central governments far less hedged in by Brussels is what they hope the coronavirus will lead to.

> Europe’s nationalist populists have long demanded more border controls and have advocated for a break with the Schengen system of passport-free travel. They hope the imposition of temporary border controls, in the face of the disapproval of Brussels, will lead to the break-up of Schengen permanently. Luca Zaia, governor of Italy’s hard-hit Veneto region and a member of Matteo Salvini’s populist Lega party, told reporters last month that “Schengen no longer exists” and forecast, “it will be remembered only in the history books.”

>Such an important aspect of modern life like mass migration is not left unattended. Unlike the Catholic approach that unduly favors migrants, particularly in Europe, the Orthodox notices the negative nature of the process, as well as the fact that it leads to confrontation of different identities and value systems. In addition, the Orthodox Church propose to look at the roots of this phenomenon. The reason for the migration is the liberal, hedonistic ideology bleeding the peoples of Europe and the interests of the capitalist elite, who need a cheap and disenfranchised workforce:

>Attempts by indigenous people of the rich countries to stop the migration flow are futile, because they come in conflict with the greed of their own elites who are interested in the low-wage workforce

>"They're like something out of a monster cartoon with this huge yellow-orange face," Susan Cobey, a bee breeder at the Washington State University's department of entomology, said recently.
>Scientists don't know how these giant hornets native to Asia ended up in Washington state.
>They're sometimes transported in international cargo -- in some cases deliberately, said Seth Truscott with WSU's college of agricultural, human and natural resource sciences.
>The giant hornet was first spotted in the state in December, and scientists believe it started becoming active again last month, when queens emerge from hibernation to build nests and form colonies.
>"Hornets are most destructive in the late summer and early fall, when they are on the hunt for sources of protein to raise next year's queens," Truscott said on the WSU's Insider.
>"They attack honey bee hives, killing adult bees and devouring bee larvae and pupae, while aggressively defending the occupied colony," he added. "Their stings are big and painful, with a potent neurotoxin. Multiple stings can kill humans, even if they are not allergic."

JCM Farming

This is some trippy shit.

>the /pol/ threads before it became a bannable offense to post about


>JCM Farming is a secretive, privately held company incorporated in 1990 that seems to be based in Solana Beach, California.[1] Court records indicate Carol Marrelli is an owner or officer of the firm.[2] The firm also seems to own and operate the Oasis Ranch near Indio, California in the Coachella Valley. The firm has been involved in a number of lawsuits designed to prevent the ranch from being flown over by crop dusters, hot air balloons and other aircraft. JCM Farming, Inc., and its affiliates own dozens of properties throughout Riverside County, some still held since the early 1970s.[3]
>The firm does not provide information as to its ownership, activities or properties.[1]
>Press reports indicate the Oasis Ranch facility was built in 1999 on 24 acres and is surrounded by a 24-foot wall four feet thick.[4] Other defenses include a partial moat, guard dogs, armed guards and video cameras. The compound includes two large buildings and a Moorish-style bell tower. The company describes the ranch as “an eighty-acre olive farm.”[1] Other documents indicate the farm is in fact a "Private Event and Meeting Center" — "a respite for and marketed to State Departments, foreign dignitaries, diplomats, Fortune 500 executives and their boards, ultra high net worth individuals and their families and celebrities."[4]
>Starting by 2009, the firm began a series of lawsuits against the operators of hot air balloons in the valley claiming harassment and invasion of privacy. The suits asked for an end to the flights, legal fees and unspecified damages. Some of the defendants have claimed that the corporation has delayed court proceedings in order to drive up defense costs.
>Thirteen of fifteen balloonists named in the suit have been forced out of business.[2] In mid-August the defendants were to inspect the enclosure in order to evaluate claims of $750,000 in business damage caused by the over flights. On Monday 15 August 2011 the legal actions were dropped by the firm and the inspection cancelled. The balloonists then petitioned the Superior Court for JCM Farming to pay their legal fees, arguing the balloonists perform public good. The Superior Court denied this request, and the balloonists appealed. The three judge panel at the Fourth Appellate District, Division Three, denied their request affirming the lower court's ruling and stated that "this lawsuit did not result in the enforcement of an important right affecting the public interest.[5]" JCM Farming was then awarded recovery of "costs on appeal," further emphasizing the lack of public good performed by balloonists.[5]
>Additionally, JCM Farming sued the FAA (Department of Transportation), USDA, and an airplane operator under contract with the United States to stop frequent, dangerously low, overflights by the operator over the ranch.[6] The parties settled with a lifetime restraining order established over the property whereby the airplane operator may only fly over the ranch with JCM Farmings's unilateral permission.[7][8]
