Good morning plus4chan, with major events going down seems like a fitting time to start a new instalment.

Civil War is brewing in Russia, military group Wagner has moved against the heads of the Russian military and has marched his mercenary company into Rostov calling for other armed groups to join him.

Its being reported on by the normal worldwide media and discussed across the internet, you can verify by checking your online news outlets of choice.

In less important news which was popular online before this broke, a handful of rich idiots in a shitty submarine died for their arrogance and cost-cutting ways as they tried to sail down to gawk at the wreck of the Titanic.
The name of said submarine was the 'Titan'.

Well things are official.

Prigozhin made demands to basically have the heads of the Russian MoD handed over to him for fucking him and fucking Russia, while moving his forces in.
Putin Put out a speech video calling them traitors, is presumably hiding in a bunker somewhere.

Now Wagner is moving further into occupying major cities and towards Moscow itself, no one has seemingly really opposed him except for a couple of helicopters that got shot down for trying to attack his convoy and rare unsubstantiated reports of gunshots. Other home-defence troops they've ran into have surrendered.

Some impressive spin by Prigozhin.
I mean its pretty much true in regards to the corruption and the head of the state alongside his cronies being liars, but he's really going all-in playing at the part of the "noble patriotic soldier" finally standing up to strike down the evil choking the country.

Can he win? If he wins will he be able to use this to ride a wave of support all the way up to the top seat?
And upon his winning will Russia even remain in a big enough single piece for him to take over?

As a side-note to recent ongoing events, Alexander Lukashenko (president of Belarus) has fled to Turkey. Being that he was kept in power by Putin and Russia's armed forces he saw the writing on the wall and was the first out of there.

So government forces are setting up defences around Moscow to face off against their approaching enemies, makes sense.
But alongside sandbags and machineguns there's also the sight of many bright orange dump trucks filled with sand being used to physically block roads?

There's been reports of riots in Russian prisons after the coup began, and it seems upon claiming said prisons Wagner reuses its classic tactics to increase their manpower. Apart from that there's also mention of RF units in Russia throwing in their lot with Wagner rather than the government.

Now excavators are being used to dig a pit across the main road to slow down Wagner's advance, that might be somewhat more effective in buying time. It's an important road for moving supplies to the war front but I suppose that's not as important if you get overthrown in the short-term.

There's a tidal wave of strange information and events happening now.

So Prig's side was saying the war is built on lies, the country is corrupt and the boys on the ground are being massacred by the higher-ups for their own benefit. Putin comes out with the official statement that the ones turning against Russia are traitors stabbing the nation in the back and must be crushed.

Wagner takes over multiple cities on the way to Moscow, shoots down some Russian aircraft that attacked, are on the cusp of reaching Moscow which is readying itself for a siege.

But then >>429345 the potato peeler gets in contact with both sides and is able to "work out a deal"? Head of Wagner says he wants to stop things before they shed a drop of Russian blood (ignore anything that happened up till this point) and is going to walk back to base like a good soldier.

What exactly is going on? The mercenaries openly marched on the capital and took land with no one able to stop them, both sides were throwing out the harshest words possible decrying each other.
Russia is good at making its people forget embarrassing events but this is a big black eye for national pride that achieved nothing, its at best back to business as normal (with a few russian losses) and the war against Ukraine continues.

Did this insurrectionist just lose his nerve at the final hurdle? What could they have possibly offered him as a bribe? And wouldn't Russia likely move to assassinate him now as they've done to people multiple times in the past? Otherwise they are leaving someone who made the government look feeble alive and free.
Maybe he'll run off to have Wagner operate somewhere else in the world and leave the conflict entirely, no idea.

The Somalian conflict from before is still ongoing. And Somalia (in comparison to SomaliLAND) is still desperate for artillery to the point forces in a region tried to get crowdfunding going to buy a piece.

There's something grimly interesting about the reduced scale and limited degree of weapons technology involved in an African war.
As in the comparison between Somalia and Somaliland seems pretty stark but both are stuck with handfuls of obsolete wargear from bygone eras compared to that sitting around in warehouses of advanced nations who aren't fighting anyone resulting in mobs of warriors with rifles backed up by weaponised civilian trucks launching raids and some old artillery guns being like the wrath of god unleashed in comparison.

China sent another warship into Somaliland waters >>429227 and like before it was escorted away.
They seem really into threatening Somaliland at the moment, if because said country voiced support of Taiwan or because if Somaliland defeats Somalia/Puntland and strengthens its position that will curtail Chinese plans in the region who can say.

China is a scumbag government. All large powers will to some greater or lesser extent seek to advance their interests in the areas of smaller nations but something that personally pisses me off is China's tendency to sail fishing fleets into other country's waters and just overfish the area to death.
Its bad enough when the ecological destruction waged by China in its desire for economic power is confined to their own borders.

Is something that notably happened in Somalia and was an influence on the widespread instances of piracy in the region, fishermen no longer having a livelihood.

Over in the Russia-Ukrainian conflict Kerch Bridge has been hit again in an attempt to hinder supplies to Crimea.

For some reason despite the war going on alot of Russia tourists had decided now was a great time to holiday in Crimea (must be super cheap?).
With the bridge closed the Russian government has told them to drive back to Russia via the border territories where active high-explosive conflict is ongoing. That does not seem like a smart idea.

Seems to be going well for Israel, which I guess is to be expected, Hamas is just a terrorist group who are only really good at slaughtering civilians at a festival in a sneak attack then flexing over it and not so skilled in a direct conflict.

The war is going well but not so much everything else. There are anti-israel pro-palestine demonstrations in a lot of places in the western world, despite the politicians attempting to shut them down everywhere. The gaza strip is also suffering as much losses in civilians and infrastructure in the last few months than Ukraine did in the last few years - this isn't a war, it's genocide.

>Hamas is just a terrorist group who are only really good at slaughtering civilians at a festival in a sneak attack
And yet the israeli Iron Dome is one of the most sophisticated defense systems in the world, and Hamas managed to bypass it, resulting in the current war that left Gaza a rubble. Ask who profits from that.

The 3-day SMO to take Kiev has stalled slightly. Despite being the invading force Russia is now on the defensive and uses a wall of meat and mines to try and not lose any more of their gains.

So yeah pretty static at the moment, only small bits of interesting news.

Right as of this moment for instance russia got an AWACS plane shredded, which is unfortunate since they only have a handful of the things left.
Funniest bits are the falsehoods thrown out to deny the ukrainian enemy the 'achievement' of shooting the thing, from it being friendly fire by Russian forces to it being THOSE FUCKING BRITS who are of course behind everything bad that happens to Russia.

Russians are an entire nations of serfs, they have been bred/broken over generations to accept the will of the strongman in charge and not cause a fuss, actively drag down and dismiss any of their peers that threaten to become 'politicial' and actually do something about the state of the nation.

Even as the government openly lies to them in the practice of 'Vranyo' they create a fiction in their own minds to glorify the perfect untouchable 'Tsar' and blame all the constant shit handling of the nation and its actions that leave them in agony as the fault of the bad corrupt 'Boyars'.
Thats why you can find so many videos of groups of russians infront of a camera, be it say pleb soldiers or civillians, reciting their woes all begging Tsar Putin to save them (and reassuring him they know its not his fault he just doesn't know the truth because his bad bad underlings are keeping it from him).
While the actual truth is Putin is a selfish incompetent dictator who is happy to keep a bubble between himself and the plebs through long tables and countless body doubles that would sacrifice all the people of his nation if it meant one more minute in power/alive.

Its all useless performative theatre rather than taking real action.

That makes sense. This song popped up on my youtube recs some time ago
Lubeh - Davai Za / Любэ - Давай заyoutube thumb
When I listened to it for the first time I though it was an anti-military song because the lyrics talks about young soldiers having to endure a lot of atrocities, missing their families and losing their friends, so in similar veins to Don't Tell Mom I'm in Afghanistan (and its different iterations). However then I realized
//youtube.com/watch?v=ni19S9FazEgyoutube thumb
It's not. It's not an anti-military song, totally the opposite, it's pro-war. So with that context in mind the lyrics actually shows the Russian people giving up, accepting jumping from war to war is part of their normal life instead of the will of an autocratic government, also passively accepting having to endure missing their families, facing the horrors of war and losing their friends is something necessary to protect their country. Which is frankly something very horrible and depressing.

Blindly suffering (at the hands of an incompetent and uncaring state) is held up as an incredible Russian culturual virtue, and in terms of warfare uselessly throwing away entire hordes of their population for every mile is held up as a great Strength going all the way back to the so-called "Great Patriotic War".

Which is all just a way to get the population to accept and even defend absolute surrender to the mobsters in charge.
They violently hate the idea of any of their slavic neighbours actually getting their act together and working to improve their country/lot in life because it destroys the myth russians live their existance by.

>Say something politically incorrect on twitter and you can lose your job
You just conflated best interest under capitalism with law. The mandatory quest for profit forces companies to try and please everyone they can, so they are pressured by economic interests to defuse media flak, spinelessly firing people who give the company a bad association. News companies in particular globally have had employees dismissed over pro-Palestinian remarks, which pro-Zionism interests (be it think tanks, media outlets, politicians) have tried to make a politically incorrect position.

You're right that the 'free world' isn't (and never was) free, but it's also silly to equivocate fines and social ostracism with execution. Secular liberalism, as flimsy, fragile and shallow as it is, has benefits. One of my internet friends will literally be killed if they come out as non-Muslim, it's a less common issue in the West. Those are harder conditions to work with compared to being able to march down a street without their thugs using their batons. Neither place is free, both suck, but I know which I'd rather be in.

(That all said, Iran is overall better off under theocratic oppression than under a 'democratic' puppet of the US - just ask their neighbours)

>shocking details of corporate collusion to silence conservative viewpoints through targeting Breitbart News, Joe Rogan, and Twitter (now X) among others.
>Joe Rogan
Lol. It does have a point, a "text categorization" model could be trained to target specific groups, but for the way it's described in that article is the same conservatist whine "they banned us for spreading misinformation/lies that means we are getting censored!", don't take it too seriously; it's basically more culture war fear mongering bullshit that doesn't acknowledge the true potential of what an AI model could do on the hands of a undemocratic government.

It's a house of representatives judiciary committee report, not whining about crazy conspiracy theory. I'd say that's reason enough to take it seriously, because it gives us definite proof that there is a group who is actively manipulating social media towards their own goals. Here's the full pdf of the report:

It's amazing how little I care and how irrelevant USA has become in the last decade on my country.
I welcome my new Chinese overlords I guess.

I can't take seriously a government report that describes Joe Rogan as "target of corporate collusion to silence conservative viewpoints", that's the culture war and conspiracy part.
>Here's the full pdf of the report:
This is even worse than the summary. The writing is so bad, it's not even justified and in some parts looks like they put an screenshot of the document instead of the document itself. It's very unprofessional.
But letting that aside, I want to bring your attention to this part:
>GARM went beyond brand safety to silence disfavored voices like Joe Rogan
>The alleged misinformation offered by Mr. Rogan was twofold
It's not "alleged misinformation", it WAS misinformation. There are already hundreds of people online who dismantled all the misinformation on Rogan's Covid episode so I won't get into details, but the point is the fact that they put it like "it's up to the air, it could be, but it's not sure", when it clearly isn't shows they are trying to deceive the reader into believing there's an organized attempt to censor their "opinions", when in reality an anti-misinformation organization banned a guy from spreading misinformation.
For the record I think GARM and every company aligned to be against "spreading misinformation" and other stuff is bullshitting. They are magnets and the main source of that, but they don't get proper punishment because they are way too big trees to take down, and these organizations are just washing up their reputation. For instance, there's CP spam campaign going on YouTube right now, and they are still spammed with malware all day, and they are channels with thousands of subscribers that share misinformation constantly, both left and right wing aligned and of course YouTube doesn't move a finger because they are big channels that generate viewers and revenue. Last year there was a big scandal of some "breadtubber" who made a little fortune out of uploading videos with basically a lot of made up stuff and lies, the guy's channel got deleted but not because YouTube did something, but because another youtuber called him out and he deleted everything on a panic attack.

So, no, there's not an organized attempt to "kick out conservatists out of internet" in this very particular case. Internet safety organization are bullshit, but the way they are explaining this shows they just want to spread propaganda and deceive the reader.
