we should support the Tories’ attempts to defund the Fake News BBC




More bourgies making yuge profits:

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/hedge-funds-mudrick-silverlake-point72-gamestop-party-morning-brief-110406546.html

Bloomberg’s Katherine Burton and Katherine Doherty reported on Tuesday that hedge fund Mudrick Capital booked a profit of around $200 million on positions in both GameStop and AMC Entertainment (AMC). Mudrick, which has about $3 billion under management, returned just under 10% in January according to Bloomberg, marking one of its best months since inception.

Late last week, we learned that investment firm Silver Lake had made about $113 million after converting $600 million worth of debt in AMC to equity and then selling the entire position during the massive surge in the stock price.

And a report from Bloomberg on Tuesday said Steve Cohen’s Point72 — which injected $750 million into struggling hedge fund Melvin Capital last week amid a short bet on GameStop gone wrong — has raised some $1.5 billion after re-opening the fund for fresh capital amid what sources called an attractive investing backdrop.



Many appear to be still above their purchase price for now but they should sell ASAP



Gamestonk crashing: WSB Loss Porn threads

Gamestonk is crashing. Yet another WSB pump and dump implodes. Time to experience the LSC spectacle of WSB Loss porn threads. …



Maybe Melvin invited the public to attempt to attack it due to seething to the media

Other hedge funds on the other side of the trade would have made billions more


Yes, It is unlikely dotard will be punished.

The system has rewarded wreckers in the past such as Newt gingrich, Ted Cruz who helped reduce social spending through their wrecking. Maybe large sections of the bourgeois still like Dotard due to his huge tax cuts. Future politicians may see benefits to their career by engaging in similar wrecking, potentially destabilizing the USA further



If they do not punish pro-democracy activist and washington critic Donald Trump, they will be inviting future attempts to overthrow the US government. Looks like he will escape senate impeachment but later see if he gets imprisoned for the Stormy Daniels nonsense.




I cannot yet find any reason given after a brief trawl through the thread. However they reposted it and the third repost survives . sort by new and there are also more similar stories in comments:

=====================

This is for you, Dad.

I remember when the housing collapse sent a torpedo through my family. My father’s concrete company collapsed almost overnight. My father lost his home. My uncle lost his home. I remember my brother helping my father count pocket change on our kitchen table. That was all the money he had left in the world. While this was happening in my home, I saw hedge funders literally drinking champagne as they looked down on the Occupy Wall Street protestors. I will never forget that.

My Father never recovered from that blow. He fell deeper and deeper into alcoholism and exists now as a shell of his former self, waiting for death.

This is all the money I have and I’d rather lose it all than give them what they need to destroy me. Taking money from me won’t hurt me, because i don’t value it at all. I’ll burn it all down just to spite them.

This is for you, Dad.

“The main point that needs refuting is the view, often expressed by users on wallstreetbets, that by speculating on a worthless stock, and potentially forcing Wall Street firms to take losses, they are somehow making a progressive protest against the capitalist system.”…

It appears the New Paradigm stage has lasted a long time with multiple new paradigms …



Maybe you will need to start watching robot fighting to get ideas.

Weak spots I have identified from the pictures of the Gherkin Dalek:

The top has a 360 degree camera which is not armored and could be easy destroyed with a skateboard or a baseball bat. The hypothetical rioters in minecraft could then pour fuel into it

Gherkin Dalek probably can only operate in very flat surfaces due to being wheeled and hypothetical rioters could trap it by throwing objects around it

Due to its massive size it would be hard to topple. Pushing it over could be dangerous due to the weight and it may have a gyroscopic stabilizer inside also. A hypothetical rioter who attempted to push it over could fall and have the Giant Dildo roll over them. However the slit with the sensor near the top provides a point to tie a rope.

Several panels appear to have screws so if you had a screwdriver - maybe its one of the ones with a special shaped head. alternately rioters of the future could bring a circular saw

Hypothetical rioters should also turn off their mobile device signals since it has a detector


ultrasound detections also possible - a feather suit or a shield of smooth flat faces to deflect the sound waves


the pic in the link shows it is pretty massive, almost as big as a human. the size could mean it is heavily armored and also very heavy and difficult to carry away

also it has a cone shape like the Gherkin so it would likely deflect off the side


Depends how they detect humans. Possible ideas:

Infrared - have a sheet of glass in front of the camera

Lasers - have a shield of flat mirrors to reflect it away from you like a stealth fighter


Maybe the capitalists believed their system was superior and would win

Also, the capitalists need to grow their markets to survive


Its a good place to convert chuds also. Many normies regularly enter and make threads asking about communism
