The New York Times reports that Jones tweeted a link to a video calling for supporters to get their "battle rifles" ready against media and others. Jones won't be able to tweet or retweet from his personal account for seven days, though he will be able to browse Twitter. The Twitter account for his "Infowars" show was not affected. Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify have taken down material published by Jones, reflecting more aggressive enforcement of hate speech policies after online backlash. But Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended his company's decision last week not to ban Jones, saying he did not break any rules.
  2. https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/ne5qwk/alex-jones-has-been-banned-from-youtube Alex Jones has been banned from YouTube The Alex Jones Channel page vanishing from YouTube comes just hours after Facebook announced that it removed four pages. By Emma Ockerman Aug 6 2018, 4:37pm Editor's note: YouTube banned Alex Jones just hours after Facebook removed several of his pages. We updated our original story, found here, below. Social media and streaming behemoths are stripping away pieces of Alex Jones’ Infowars empire, bruising the reach of the conspiracy theorist known for portraying the Sandy Hook massacre as a hoax. As of Monday afternoon, the Alex Jones Channel no longer appears on YouTube and shows a message that it’s been removed for violating YouTube’s community guidelines. YouTube did not immediately respond to VICE News request for comment, but in a statement to BuzzFeed News, the company said that when users repeatedly violate policies “like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts.” The Alex Jones Channel page vanishing from YouTube comes just hours after Facebook announced that it removed four pages, including the Alex Jones Channel, Alex Jones, Infowars, and Infowars Nightly News over content that violated its community standards. And Facebook’s move came just hours after Apple purged all but one of Jones’ podcasts from Apple Podcasts and iTunes. Spotify has also removed all episodes of The Alex Jones Show. The Alex Jones Channel had 2.4 million followers on YouTube, and YouTube previously took down four videos from the Alex Jones channel and suspended the channel from live-streaming for 90 days. It’s not like Jones’ traffic will be gutted, though. Infowars’ flagship website boasts 3.6 million monthly unique visitors, according to metrics kept by Amazon’s Alexa Internet. But most of that traffic comes via Alphabet Inc. properties Google and YouTube. His radio show, syndicated by more than 160 stations nationwide and streamed online, reaches millions. His Sunday broadcast out of Austin, Texas reached 2 million weekly listeners in 2010, according to Texas Monthly. Then there’s his Twitter, where he’s verified and has about 815,000 followers. Following Apple’s announcement, Ellen K. Pao, former chief executive officer of Reddit, challenged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on why Jones still has a verified account. “Your move, @jack. Be a leader with integrity like @tim_cook,” she said. Jones himself is now on a 30-day Facebook block for posting violating content, the company said. Last week, Facebook removed four videos across pages relating to Jones. Cached results on Google show the now-removed pages had a combined 2.9 million “likes” from Facebook users. Alex Jones’ response on his radio show to the Facebook takedown: “Thank God.”
  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump pardons them since he’s been removing U.S. animal protections and his nasty ass sons love to go kill wildlife. https://www.yahoo.com/news/father-son-charged-killing-mother-084110824.html Father, Son Charged With Killing Mother Bear And 'Shrieking' Cubs In Their Den Mary Papenfuss HuffPost, August 10, 2018, 4:41 AM EDT A father and son have been charged with several crimes after they allegedly shot a mother bear and her crying newborn twins inside their Alaska den, authorities said. The men’s actions were captured on a motion-activated video camera installed by wildlife officials who were tracking the mother bear. Owen Renner, 18, was seen on the video shooting the mother black bear in April on Esther Island in Prince William Sound, said police. According to a sworn summary of events by police that was filed in court, the “cubs begin shrieking in the den after the initial shots are fired,” The Anchorage Daily News reported Wednesday. His father, Andrew Renner, 41, then took “aim through his rifle scope only feet away and fires several more shots, killing the newborn bear cubs,” per the court documents. He was also seen on video saying: ‘It doesn’t matter. Bear down,’” authorities said. It’s illegal to kill a mother bear with cubs in most areas of Alaska, including where the sow and her newborns were slain. After the Renners discovered the mother bear was wearing a tracking collar, they returned to the den to collect their gun shells and dispose of the cubs’ bodies, officials said. They later turned in the mother’s collar and skin to authorities but claimed they had shot the sow at a different location and saw no cubs with her, according to a statement from the Alaska State Troopers. Other clips showed the men skinning and butchering the sow, and Owen Renner declaring, “They’ll never be able to link it to us,” authorities said. The mother bear had been part of a three-year study by the U.S. Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The study was launched due to concerns about the declining black bear population in the area. The men now face charges of unlawfully taking a female bear with cubs, killing two bear cubs and illegally possessing and transporting three illegally hunted bears. Andrew Renner was also charged with tampering with evidence, which is a felony, filing false documentation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor (his son was 17 at the time of the shooting), the Dispatch reported.

    “They’ve had enough of a President who separates families and puts babies in cages ... every day he does something worse than the day before. And he tops it, and tops it, and tops it. I believe that Trump is loathed in America, that people are embarrassed and ashamed of who he is.” - Rosie O'Donnell explains why she's leading Broadway stars in a protest of the President https://cnn.it/2MmHn6d

    It’s a non-story barely saying anything. Nobody here is expecting her to go on tour until at least next year.
  12. https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/when-no-one-looking-many-women-are-watching-gay-porn-n894266 When no one is looking, many women are watching gay porn Heterosexual porn is designed for men, and a researcher finds that it often makes women uncomfortable. by Tim Fitzsimons / Jul.25.2018 / 7:59 AM ET Back in 2015, the wildly popular online pornography site Pornhub — which boasts over 115 million daily views — published a finding that took sexuality researcher Lucy Neville by surprise: Women are responsible for more than a third of the site’s gay male porn views. The finding planted the seed for what would eventually become a book, “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys,” which was published earlier this month. In it, Neville, a lecturer at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, investigates what women enjoy about consuming gay male erotica and how it fits in with their perceptions of gender and sexuality. Neville interviewed and surveyed more than 500 women over five years for the project. Many of the women with whom she spoke said “a lot of the problem they have with heterosexual porn is that they focus on the female body" without paying enough attention to men. “Gay porn gives an opportunity to look at the male form and male beauty and the male face when orgasming,” Neville said. “What women liked most about male-male porn is versatility, and with heterosexual porn you are going to get penetrated eventually, and that’s dull,” she added. “A lot of ways it can play out with men is more exciting, more experimentation, more open to negotiation.” Another key finding over the course of Neville’s research was that 55 percent of the women she interviewed said they had imagined themselves as men while consuming gay male erotica. “They found it quite liberating, the idea that you could pretend or imagine yourself as a man or someone who is gender-fluid,” Neville explained. “Personally, I’ve always done that, too, but I thought I was a bit of a weirdo. It was interesting to find that half the sample had done that.” The women surveyed also expressed a “strong desire to consume porn that is ethical in some way,” Neville said, and they found some heterosexual porn “exploitative.” She found there was a general sense among those interviewed that male actors participate in pornography because they enjoy sex, while some interviewees indicated they were worried about women performers and the gender dynamics in heterosexual porn. Anjelika, 38, who declined to share her last name because she did not want to publicly reveal her porn-viewing habits, is a startup founder in San Francisco who identifies as bisexual. She said she watches gay male porn a few times a month and, echoing Neville’s findings, said she particularly enjoys its unpredictability and versatility. The subversiveness of watching porn that’s not “for her” is also part of the fun, she said. “The naughty component is very important, and I find two attractive men having sex to be a very beautiful thing,” she explained. Anjelika also said some of the videos that pop up in the straight section of porn sites rub her the wrong way. “Sometimes you see these ‘surprise anal’ videos,” Anjelika said, “and I am like, ‘surprise anal’ is like anal rape, I’m sorry.” Straight porn videos strike her as “dehumanizing,” she said, adding “most of the time” it doesn’t seem like the women are “having a good time.” Christina, who also declined to share her last name for the same reason as Anjelika, said she consumes gay male erotica and is turned off by straight porn. “They are definitely objectifying women and not treating them like people,” she said of porn with both men and women. “A lot of the time it seems like the women aren't actually enjoying it.” The 30-year-old Los Angeles resident said even in aggressive gay porn “it looks like the pleasure they’re both getting is very, very different than straight aggressive porn.” While conducting research about female viewers of gay porn, one concern Neville had was whether gay men would be concerned about the fetishization of gay male sex. But after interviewing more than 200 gay men, she reported that most saw no issue with this phenomenon. “If it’s helping people explore romance and sexuality — and possibly breaking down over-representation of heterosexuality in the media — then it’s probably a good thing,” Neville said one of the respondents told her. Neville’s book, “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys,” is now available online.

Photo courtesy Wichita County Sheriff's Office. KATY, Texas (CBS) — Police in Katy, Texas, arrested a woman after they said she allegedly mailed meth to a convicted murderer. According to KFDX, Sara Elizabeth Russell, 29, has been accused of getting a prohibited substance into a correctional facility. The incident began when a mail room employee at the James V. Allred Unit, a prison in Wichita Falls, Texas, found a bulge behind a photo on a homemade card. The employee pulled on it, revealing a clear package with a white powder-like substance. Authorities said the substance tested positive for meth. They also said the return address on the package was to Jason Burkett, an inmate convicted of capital murder after killing two boys in 2001. Burkett was interviewed, but said he didn’t mail drugs or ask anyone to mail him drugs. Police later discovered Russell’s fingerprints on the package and arrested her. Officials alleged Burkett had mailed the card to Russell with instructions to put the drugs inside, then arranged to have the package returned to him, police said. Russell was given a bond of $10,000.
