A Wikileaks post published on The Nation shows that the Obama Administration fought to keep Haitian wages at 31 cents an hour.
(This article was taken down by The Nation due to an embargo, but it was excerpted at Columbia Journalism Review.)
It started when Haiti passed a law two years ago raising its minimum wage to 61 cents an hour. According to an embassy cable:
This infuriated American corporations like Hanes and Levi Strauss that pay Haitians slave wages to sew their clothes. They said they would only fork over a seven-cent-an-hour increase, and they... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

"RIYADH: Saudi Arabia announced yesterday the formation of a military coalition of 34 countries to fight “terrorism” in the Islamic world, in the latest sign of a more assertive foreign policy by the kingdom. The regional Sunni power said the alliance would share intelligence, combat violent ideology and deploy troops if necessary. “Nothing is off the table. A number of countries are in desperate need of assistance,” Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said. “Terrorism has hit Islamic countries. It is time that the Islamic world takes a stand,” he told reporters in Paris..."

Looks like the Islamic world is finally standing up. I've always said it should be Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia who need to do something about the rise of extremists. Western countries bombing only leads to future recruits against us friends and families get killed by proximity. Seeing their fellow Muslims fighting against extremism way help Daesh lose some momentum.
Converting to islam is about the most redpilled thing you can do. enligthenment values and christianity are not the qualities that made the West great, but the cancer currently killing western civilization

Worked for a net neutrality activist group for a while, there are people assigned in different activist groups to sift through these bills and see if they tried to put another rider in there since it's become such a common thing. Of course there always is one, and of course it's one in a fuckton of other riders. It's just the net neutrality camp that makes the most noise about it.
That does fortunately call to attention the existence of riders, which are bullshit because these legislators don't know how to pass laws like proper lawmakers -- but hey,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Is anyone else a bit amused at how media in general doesn't understand what Anonymous is? Yes, we've all had a few chuckles, but "Anonymous" as it currently stands has been around for a decade now. Are they intentionally doing it at this point? Since anyone at all can claim to be in Anonymous, many people's responses come off as ignorant.

She didn't even say multiculturalism. She said multiculti, which devalues the concept that she is talking about. Basically, her choice of words already implies that she has a less than stellar opinion on the concept.
Also, ignore the part about the CSU at the end. The CSU constantly throws wrenches around just to stay in the limelight. There is a reason as to why... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I wouldn't read to much into it, anon. It seems more like a poorly-disguised and lazy attempt to appease the justifiably-upset German citizens than a sincere statement to me. Keep in my mind she said the same shit back in 2010. Expectedly, the media hype machine mystified it as some sort of ominous "big change to come" omen concerning Germany's future immigration policy.
Fast forward from when that statement was made in 2010 to 2014, or 4,651,132  new cases of multiculturalism later. What's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If she knows it's a sham, why did she just insist that her country take a million people of which hundreds of thousands will not assimilate? She basically just guaranteed that Germany will have two incompatible parallel societies going forward.
