Believe in something

Believe in something . . .

"Theses on Kaepernick" (Dawson).  Horrible company, brilliant marketing, and it is difficult to cheer against this guy getting paid, given the awful way he has been blacklisted by NFL owners.

The usual Shia-Sunni political maschinations:  "Mass social unrest leaves Iraq’s oil capital in flames" (Van Auken).  You have to love the fact that the commie bros have a standard last paragraph that they paste onto every one of their otherwise good articles.

"Qatar Emir to Invest $12 bn in Germany, Seeking to Break out of Saudi Blockade".

'Hollywood':  "Protecting Canadian culture a surprise sticking point at NAFTA talks".

"Britain Should Be in the Dock Over Skripal Saga, Not Russia".  We're reached the point where the sole reason for these stunts is to give the media a PR line to follow (and then they wonder why the media is held in such utter contempt).  "Skripal Case: Luke Harding’s latest work of fiction" (Kit).  Tweet (Neil Clark) (the big hole in the story remains that British authorities are certain these are Putin's assassins, but don't actually know the slightest thing about them, including their names or even how they obtained their fake names!):
"‘ asked a very good question at the press conference this morning. What kind of visas did the two Russian suspects travel to Britain on? The police officer said he didn’t know. But how were the men identified?’ Me on just now. "
"Skripals – The Mystery Deepens" (Murray):
"There are other possibilities of who “Boshirov and Petrov” really are, of which Ukrainian is the obvious one. One thing I discovered when British Ambassador to Uzbekistan was that there had been a large Ukrainian ethnic group of scientists working at the Soviet chemical weapon testing facility there at Nukus. There are many other possibilities."
Ukrainian intelligence fits all the things we've seen happening in Russiagate in the US.  It is striking how British authorities keep building complex timelines (I originally typed timelies) based on what they assure the public is strong forensic evidence, timelines that don't convince, react by adding new 'facts' which contradict the earlier timelines, and then pretend the earlier timelines never existed.  The fundamentals of conspiracy planning is to develop an Official Story from the beginning, and then stick with it despite all the problems that come up.  This Don Adams-style 'would you believe . . .' doesn't work.

"FBI Hid Fact That Russia Thought Carter Page Was An "Idiot" Unworthy Of Recruiting: Sperry" (Durden).  One of the main parts of the complicated Russiagate tale is that all of Putin's supposed 'assets' were the extremely marginal characters hanging around the edges of Trump's campaign, people were were elevated solely because all the big-name Republican players wanted to have nothing to do with Trump.

"The Biggest Trump Scandal So Far" (Marcetic).  The real scandals are not to be mentioned, covered up by the phony scandals and fainting fits that won't lead anywhere.  The bottom line is that Trump isn't going anywhere as long as he keeps the big bipartisan understandings in place.

Such a nice people:  "‘NYT’ reporter’s book on Israeli assassinations brims with jokes about killing Arabs" (Weiss).  'Brims' is right, we lose sight of the sheer volume of killings, and, as usual, supremacists can't help crowing about how excellent they are at it.  "Les Moonves Reportedly Tried to Destroy Janet Jackson".  "Congrats NYC Jew Landlords! For the 2nd Year in a Row, You're #1 on the "Worst Landlords" List!" (Bacon).  Tweet (Tony Tassell):
"A billionaire pharmaceuticals executive who has been blamed for spurring the US opioid crisis stands to profit from the epidemic after he patented a new treatment for drug addicts - sccop by "
"The Israel Lobby’s Non-stop Attacks on Corbyn will Backfire" (Cook).  The stunts (((they))) are playing are going to lead to Corbyn in power with considerable support in both the party and the country for a strong and righteous and long overdue 'gas the kikes' (metaphorically, of course) policy.  Supremacism always ends in a disaster for the supremacists.

Let the gassings begin!:  "Britain: No-confidence motions passed against leading Blairite MPs" (Mitchell).  Some of these traitors have been huffing on the shekel pipe for decades.

"Once upon a time there were three commentators" (Lowes).

"Idlib: Al Qaeda's Last Stand" (Cartalucci).  Sadly, not true, the CIA will ensure the leaders escape, just as bin Laden was allowed to escape at Tora Bora (now ISIS territory).  Keeping your proxy armies/phony opponents alive is a full-time job.

"Pompeo visits Pakistan to demand “reset” in support for Afghan war" (Gnana/Silva).  Pro tip:  don't pull the rug out before you come around with your 'demands'!

"The Cards are on the Table in Brazil" (Yepe).  Do you think the attack on Bolsonaro was a political stunt involving a serious lack of knife control?  Or perhaps the extent of his injuries was greatly exaggerated.  Health scares with a 'miraculous' recovery are a good recipe for winning elections.

"Nikki Haley: "US Will Not Remain A Passive Observer As Nicaragua Becomes Another Venezuela Or Syria"" (Durden).  A telling list of Assholian victims from 'ol' Nik' herself.

"North Korea Could Formally End War With South Without US Troop Pull Out – Report".  Anything is possible once people figure out that peace can break out in creative ways behind the backs of the Assholian Deep State.
