Ms Copeland and her Kenneth Copeland Ministries are now in trouble with the UK's Charity Commission because they've repeated this advice on their UK website (the European end of their organisation has its headquarters in the UK and is a registered charity here):

Quote:
A Charity Commission spokeswoman told The Independent: “Trustees must ensure that their charity only carries out activities within their charitable objectives and must ensure they protect the reputation of their charity.

“The commission will be contacting the Kenneth Copeland Ministries regarding material posted on the charity’s website to determine whether there is a regulatory role for the commission.”

I'm not wholly sure what powers the Charity Commissioners have in this case, but I'm sure they can find something unpleasant and expensive to do to the UK end of Kenneth Copeland Ministries if the church upsets them enough.

This is The Intercept, and therefore perhaps not the most reliable of sources, and the disclosures don't really add anything to our knowledge of attitudes inside Wikileaks.
Quote:
Still, Twitter messages obtained by The Intercept provide an unfiltered window into WikiLeaks’ political goals before it dove into the white-hot center of the presidential election. The messages also reveal a running theme of sexism and misogyny, contain hints of anti-Semitism, and underline Assange’s well-documented obsession with his public image.

The chats are from a direct message group between WikiLeaks and about 10 of its online boosters, described as a “low security channel for some very long term and reliable supporters who are on twitter.” Perhaps because of the “low security” designation, the chats do not shed much light on the most sensitive questions surrounding WikiLeaks and the 2016 election. They don’t reveal anything new about WikiLeaks’ relationship with the Trump campaign, although they are consistent with the group’s public statements casting doubt on claims by former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone that he had advanced knowledge of the group’s anti-Clinton leaks. The chats don’t illuminate any connections with the Russian government or tell us anything about the identity of the source who provided WikiLeaks with emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.
Nevertheless, well worth a read, I think.

IN LEAKED CHATS, WIKILEAKS DISCUSSES PREFERENCE FOR GOP OVER CLINTON, RUSSIA, TROLLING, AND FEMINISTS THEY DON’T LIKE

Fuller collection of quotes here, but I'd suggest reading the article first for context.

Major shooting incident at a high school in Florida. Gunman is still at large and active...reports up as many as 20 injured, which is disturbingly high for such an early report.

It's a high school in Parkland, Florida. The police are still evacuating kids from the school at this point. It's not clear if any shooting is still going on, but no suspect is in custody and there hasn't been any reports yet of police engaging anyone. The estimates of injured come from a number of victims observed being carried out of the school to ambulances and police trucks; there still may be others injured in the building.

A suspect was taken into custody without confrontation at a place away from the school. He is an adult, believed at this point to be a former, not current, student of the school.

The police have confirmed there are fatalities.

‘A horrific, horrific day’: At least 17 killed in Florida school shooting | WaPo

This is incredibly sad. My heart hurts for the victims - both the injured and killed, and those traumatized by the incident. This sort of thing is happening just way too often, as one student pointed out:
Quote:
“People were texting, trying to find out what was going on. Kids were crying; some people were freaking out,” Kadel said. “I’m kind of surprised it happened here, but I’m not really shocked. School shootings happen all the time, and then the news just forgets about them.”
Can anyone remember, without Googling, where the last school shooting took place? Yeah, me either. This is insane, and just seems to be getting worse.

Of course, the Cheeto-in-Chief chimed in:

Twitter

So, Mr. Trump: What exactly are your plans for dealing with the NRA?

This is scary and difficult to watch. It's a cell phone video clip from inside one of the classrooms during the shooting. None of the people in that particular room seems to be struck by the gunfire, but the sound and the smoke is horrifying enough.

The Gateway Pundit is a right-wing, far-right, pro-Trump website. It was founded after the United States presidential election in 2004, according to its founder Jim Hoft, to "speak the truth" and to "expose the wickedness of the left". The website is often linked to or cited by Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, as well as Drudge Report, Sarah Palin, and other well-known conservative people and media outlets. The website is known for publishing falsehoods and spreading hoaxes.
Considering that Twitler is trying to make the FBI -look- bad? Yeah, right - utter bullshit article there.

Sure, let's blame the FBI, instead of the fact we refuse to discuss this problem with white males who like to beat up their significant others and/or children. That as a country we care more about our right to have guns than we do about our children.

And then we'll blame it on mental health issues [bullshit], or any other scapegoat, rather than going back to the days where the nRA was more about gun safety and less about selling guns [by using 'ex-girlfriend' shooting dummies.

As I understand it from what I've read places like the Washington Post and the NYT, the FBI did respond the report by talking to the YouTuber on whose page the comment had appeared and who reported it, but after that decided they simply didn't have enough evidence to put together an application for a warrant to have YouTube try to identify the the account that posted the threatening remarks.

As I understand it, making vague and non-specific threats is not unlawful in the USA, which is probably just as well because if the FBI took it upon themselves thoroughly to investigate every threat or violent statement that appeared in YouTube comments, they'd never get anything else done.
