Richard Stengel is the founder of the State Department's Global Engagement Center (GEC). He describes his job as "chief propagandist."
"I'm not against propaganda. Every country does it, they have to do it to their own population, & I don't think it's that awful."

Trump’s post contain no evidence that the girls pictured were underage, or establishes that anyone photographed was illegally consuming alcohol. DailyMail.com has not been able to verify the provenance of the photos.

Last year we decided to break up with Disney+. So while we were sad to say goodbye to the Star Wars shows and Marvel spin-offs, we were happy to say farewell to the woke indoctrination that was ruining such a great brand and threatening to seep into the minds of our unsuspecting kids.

Excellent idea - Courts should presume statements by anonymous sources are false in a defamation claim.

This would force publications to independently verify information provided by anonymous sources. How much fake news has been fed to the media by anonymous sources from the deep state over the past decade?

Belgian police also said they discovered 20 alleged victims of trafficking, all Chinese, during the raids across Belgian cities of Antwerp, Charleroi, Louvain, Neufchateau and Brussels.

It is a good upgrade, but there have been some bug reports that concern me. I will check again this weekend and see if they have been dealt with.

Lemmy users can now be followed. Just visit a user profile from another platform like Mastodon, and click the follow button, then you will receive new posts and comments in the timeline.

Votes are now federated as private. This prevents other platforms from showing who voted on a given post, and it also means that Lemmy now counts votes from Mastodon.

This release also improves compatibility with Pleroma. If you previously had trouble interacting between Pleroma and Lemmy, give it another try.

We’ve extracted the main federation logic into its own library, activitypub-federation-rust. It is open source and can be used by other projects to implement Activitypub federation, without having to reinvent the wheel. The library helps with handling HTTP signatures, sending and receiving activities, fetching remote objects and more.

  • Admins can now purge content and pictures from the database.
  • Mods can distinguish a comment, “stickying” it to the top of a post. Useful for mod messages and announcements.
  • Number of new / unread comments are now shown for each post.
  • Lemmy now automatically embeds videos from Peertube, Youtube and other sites which provide an embed link via Opengraph attribute. You can give your site “taglines”, short markdown messages, which are shown at the top of your front page. Thanks to @makotech for adding this.
  • You can now report private messages. Most settings have been moved from the config file into the database. This means they can be updated much easier, and apply immediately without a restart.
  • When setting up a new Lemmy instance, it doesn’t create a default community anymore. Instead this needs to be done manually.
  • Admins can choose to receive emails for new registration applications.
  • An upgrade of diesel to v2.0, our rust -> postgres layer.
  • Too many bugfixes to count, they are listed below.

It us a good idea, but wait till we are upgraded to v.17 so it is based on the latest and greatest






OK I will set one up tomorrow with a sidebar description and you can suggest any edits you like. Are you willing to be moderator?



In the past week, I have only had to remove one, maybe two posts. One was for porn. Cannot remember if there was a second one, but if there was it was probably spam.

Nobody has been banned.


What about something like:

Preventing Socialist Totalitarian Regimes

That way we could include what happened in Germany, but also other countries like Venezuela and what is happening in Brazil right now. Not to mention what we are seeing in Canada and USA.



I have held back the update for the time being till the instructions are clarified and the bugs that have been reported are dealt with.


Yes, but a couple of requests

  1. Can we put it in a separate community, so if it causes any legal problems it is easy to deal with.
  2. Can we agree the name of the community so it reflects what you have stated above.
  3. Cannot turn into a place to attack people based on race, religion, or ethnicity.

Sound fair?


Let’s just say he is very unpopular in Washington, but he is a very smart man. We need to see him produce results



I agree.

And that is why we should hold the ruling class accountable regardless if they are on the left or right.

Truth be told, bad actors infiltrate both.

The other nice thing is as you find good communities on other instances and subscribe to them through Exploding Heads, they appear under “All” on Exploding Heads helping others discover them as well.

You can copy the URL of the community from the address bar in your browser and insert it in your ExplodingvHeads search field. Wait a few seconds, the community will appear below. Then click on it and hit subscribe.

But they may not know how to define a girl


That is good feedback.


Not sure if I can give you any useful advice on that.

But please share your findings for others who may use Friendica in the future. Do you think we should have communities for each of these other systems people interact with us through federation e.g Friendica, Mastodon, FBXL, etc?
