Red bag

"Open Thread: The Amesbury Couple and the Reborn Novichok Saga" (OffGuardian).  Comment by Jen:
"I’ll repeat what I said over at Mark Chapman’s Kremlin Stooge blog with regard to a possible connection between Rowley and Sturgeon on one hand and the Skripals on the other:

There has been speculation that Charles Rowley and Dawn Sturgess were the couple walking in The Maltings shopping mall area caught on CCTV camera about 15 minutes before the Skripals were discovered in their dishevelled state on the park bench. Sturgess was reportedly carrying a red carry-bag. A red carry-bag was found at the collapsed Julia Skripal’s feet. The carry-bag then vanished into police custody.

In his 6-part series on the Skripal poisoning saga, Rob Slane over at The Blogmire has speculated that the red carry-bag could be key as to how the Skripals and DS Nick Bailey were poisoned. Julia Skripal may have looked into the bag first and got a full whiff of toxin in her face (which may explain why she had to be airlifted to hospital while Sergei Skripal was transported by ambulance). Bailey may have looked into the bag at the police station later on. This would also explain the long lapse in time between the Skripals’ poisoning and Bailey’s poisoning.

What else could have been in the red carry-bag … cash, and loads of it, and for what reason?

"UK Confirms Novichok In Latest Poisoning Same As Used On Skripals" (Durden).  "UK Recklessly Linking Moscow to Amesbury Without Proof – Ex-Intelligence Agents".  Breathtaking audacity - and an insult to the intelligence of the people of Britain - for these scoundrels to try this same trick again.  Background is the success of the World Cup - with England and Russia both doing well - and the Trump-Putin summit.

"'New legal high?' Twitter awash with mockery & conspiracy after Novichok hits UK again".

"Congressman Investigating FISA Abuse, Awan Says DOJ Spying On Him" (Durden).  "Imran Awan Gets Sweetheart Plea Deal; DOJ Won't Prosecute Alleged Spy Ring, Cybercrimes" (Durden).  The entire mess swept under the rug, with Trump as sitting President!

"Oil Drops As WSJ Reports Aramco IPO "Almost Certainly Won't Happen"" (Durden).  Big, as the 'reformist' plans of MbS are dependent on the money from this.  Rumors have been that the audit of oil reserves required for the IPO would disclose that the Saudis have much less than is usually thought.

Peak chutzpah is when you steal land from the Palestinians to preserve an historical site for the imaginary ancestors of another people, and then allow development of it as housing for Jews only:  "Israel advances new law to allow residential construction in settler-run national park".

"US And UK Authorities Now DNA-Testing Migrant Children" (Durden).  Based on the suspicion that these 'families" are actually children with human smugglers.

Smart to pick a Khazar!:  "Murray Segal to lead review of Hassan Diab extradition".  You have to laugh.  Of course, nobody will be allowed to note how deeply outrageous this is.
