Master-ful

Tweet (Rawan):
"Is Dianne fucking Feinstein mentioning Palestinian suffering or am I just tired?"
"Massey College nixes ‘Master’ title four months after racist incident".  Due to a racist quip by a supremacist Holocaust expert, Michael Marrus.  Robertson Davies, who doesn't seem to merit a mention on their website (!), though he is entirely responsible for the place, must be turning over in his grave.

"Canada’s Nazi Problem" (Pike).  This is very good.

The people who should go to jail (but won't):  "The FBI and CIA Failed Coup Against Trump Unravels by Publius Tacitus".  These careerists and bureaucrats wouldn't have dared do this to anyone with real power, but thought they would be currying favor with the next President, Killary, and are now exposed because Trump defied all expectations, and won.

"Press Prostitutes Lie Through Their Teeth About House Intelligence Committee Report" (Roberts):
"The FBI, that is, the criminal organization that should be indicted for conspiracy against the United States, alleges falsely that “the memo omits key information that could impact its veracity.” It does not. You can find the same information in the FISA court document. Moreover, Adm. Rogers can be put on the stand, and he can confirm that the FBI and DOJ misled the FISA court to obtain permission to spy for partisan political reasons."
"Comey Responds To "Dishonest And Misleading" Memo" (Durden).  "And the incredibly fair and unbiased James Comey…" (Neo-Neocon).

You have to give Nunes (and Trump) a great deal of credit here for political manipulation.  They knew the media was entirely Killaried, not to mention completely suborned by the IC, so they strung out a simple summary of the facts long enough to turn it into political intrigue (using the bizarre American government method of classifying everything, and hiding uncomfortable truths behind the ruse of protecting 'national security'), and thus preventing the media from completely dismissing it as partisan bullshit (which the 'journalists' would have done had the memo been released when it was produced).  The Democrats and the media are only left with the claim that this is old news - we already knew that! - which of course means that they accept that it is fundamentally true.

"Thoughts on the Nunes Memo - TTG" (remember that the point of all this wasn't to somehow overthrow or block Trump, as everybody in the know knew that Killary was going to win):
"By the memo’s own admission the FBI investigation began in July 2016 with information surrounding Papadopoulis, probably from Australia.

Prior to this FBI investigation, an interagency working group was established in April 2016  from the FBI, CIA, NSA, DOJ, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the DNI to begin an inquiry into the movement of Russian money into the US to pay hackers and influence the election. This action was taken based on info received from the Estonian IS concerning Trump associates meeting RIS operatives in Europe and a recording indicating the Russian government was planning to funnel funds aimed at influencing the US election. GCHQ became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russia. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information. Germany, Poland and possibly the French DGSE also passed on SIGINT.

The existence of neither of these investigations was leaked to the press before the 2016 election. I would think the vast Borg conspiracy would have done this as a vital part of their soft coup. It would have been effective. Instead, they publicly announced the reopening of the Clinton email investigation a week before the election. Is that any way to run a secret society?

The Mueller investigation is not a Borg conspiracy or a leftist conspiracy or a witch hunt. It is a federal counterintelligence and criminal investigation. I have no doubt there have been and will be instances of investigatorial and prosecutorial arrogance, overreach and even errors when this is all over. Whether there will be serious indictments that will permanently hobble or even destroy the Trump presidency is unknown. He may come out of this exonerated and stronger than ever. Only a thorough investigation, with proper oversight, will tell. "
"Can The Impending Collapse Of Russiagate Halt The Slide Toward A Nuclear 1914?" (Jatras).  "Trump Revises Nuclear Posture Toward Russia: Conventional Attack Could Prompt Nuclear Response" (Durden).

"Tillerson Invokes Possibility of Pinochet-Style Coup in Venezuela". Funny, as they have tried and failed, numerous times, due to the strong underlying support for the Bolivarian Revolution in the general population and the army.

"Media offensive against Venezuela's crypto-petro currency: between fear and amazement" (Antonopoulos).

"Mattis Threatens Military Action Over Syria Gas Attack Claims, Then Admits "No Evidence"" (Durden).  Yinon, Yinon, Yinon, Yinon  . . . .  Also, could someone please write the White Helmets a new script?

"EBay Rises to Record High on Shift to Adyen; PayPal Tumbles".  The very definition of an 'undesirable alien':  "Citizen Thiel".

"If Everyone Knew About the Harassment Problem in Canadian Politics, Why Did Nobody Act?" (Gerson).

"Victory of reason: Olympic ban reversal shows how inept the 'Russian doping' saga is".  It is perhaps not a coincidence that the gossip is flying around American hero Carl Lewis.  Note how hard it was for American gossip blind guessers, who are usually amazingly adept at guessing, to come up with this name.

"Debunking Alt-Media’s Doublethink on Yemen" (Korybko).  Weak and confused (the Syrian Baath's are socialists?), and sounds like it was written by somebody taking money from MbZ (there is quite a bit of evidence that there is an MbS/MbZ split, the implications of which have not yet played out, but I'd bet money on MbZ as the much bigger bastard).

The two recent huge music 'suicides', Bennington and Cornell, are being spun into some amazing gossip blinds:  "Four For Friday - A Family Member Speaks" (CDaN).  Guesses (links removed, but this is interesting):
"Investigator: Monica Peterson (Assistant Director at the Human Trafficking Center in Colorado, died in November of 2016 while doing research on child trafficking in Haiti)
B- list actress: Alexis Arquette
Actor: Jared Leto
A list singer: Chris Cornell"
There is a new phenomenon out there of old guys who have successfully manged drugs for decades suddenly dying of an overdose (though Bennington and Cornell were called hangings).
