Worst premise ever

"Kunstler: Civil War Two Looms As Deep State Circles The Wagons":
"It turns out that the Deep State is a small world.

Did you know that the lawyer sitting next to Dr. Ford in the Senate hearings, one Michael Bromwich, is also an attorney for Andrew McCabe, the former FBI Deputy Director fired for lying to investigators from his own agency and currently singing to a grand jury?

What a coincidence. Out of all the lawyers in the most lawyer-infested corner of the USA, she just happened to hook up with him.

It’s a matter of record that Dr. Ford traveled to Rehobeth Beach Delaware on July 26, where her Best Friend Forever and former room-mate, Monica McLean, lives, and that she spent the next four days there before sending a letter July 30 to Senator Diane Feinstein that kicked off the “sexual assault” circus. Did you know that Monica McClean was a retired FBI special agent, and that she worked in the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York under Preet Bharara, who had earlier worked for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer?

Could Dr. Ford have spent those four days in July helping Christine Blasey Ford compose her letter to Mrs. Feinstein? Did you know that Monica McClean’s lawyer, one David Laufman is a former DOJ top lawyer who assisted former FBI counter-intel chief Peter Strozk on both the Clinton and Russia investigations before resigning in February this year — in fact, he sat in on the notorious “unsworn” interview with Hillary in 2016. Wow! What a really small swamp Washington is!

Did you know that Ms. Leland Keyser, Dr. Ford’s previous BFF from back in the Holton Arms prep school, told the final round of FBI investigators in the Kavanaugh hearing last week — as reported by the The Wall Street Journal — that she “felt pressured” by Monica McLean and her representatives to change her story — that she knew nothing about the alleged sexual assault, or the alleged party where it allegedly happened, or that she ever knew Mr. Kavanaugh. I think that’s called suborning perjury."
The GOP theory that something bad happened but alcohol, time, and therapy washing caused her to misidentify the actual perp, is quite plausible, and forms the basis of innumerable alibi defenses raising the issue of reasonable doubt in criminal cases.  Of course, this isn't a criminal prosecution, and the standards are different (no prosecutor would have, or should have, taken on this as a criminal case, based on the sorry state of the evidence, and I say this as somebody who believes her), but the Clintonistas didn't even bother to hide the creaky mechanisms of the IC/Deep State in mounting this PR operation.  See also:  "Flyers Blaming Jews for Kavanaugh Allegations Found on UC Davis" (Bandler).

"'They all take Saudi money': Suspected murder of WaPo columnist by Saudi Arabia ignored by UK press".  On the other hand:  "Where is Jamal Khashoggi?" (Elliott Abrams!).  When MbS was unable to push through President Jared's ethnic cleansing plan for the Palestinians, you have to wonder if he lost his utility for the Zionists, who perhaps have another princeling in mind to run the Saudi show.

"Investigative Journalist Probing EU Corruption Found Brutally Raped And Murdered" (Durden).

"Google is Totally Not Politically Biased, And You Can Always Trust Them to Run the World Fairly" (Anglin).

"Few Admiring Words for “Crypto-Socialist” Singapore" (Vltchek).  "Singapore court convicts activist, politician over Facebook posts".  A lot of people think Singapore could still succeed with all the good things it accomplishes while laying off the Orwellian shit just a tad.

"Yemen’s Descent Into Hell" (Menon).  The comments try to steer it into war for oil and other suspicious places (though it seems clear that MbZ wants to steal some territory out of this war).  The sad fact is that all these people are dying in Yemen just to make the odd PR point that Iran is somehow bad, based on a semi-fictitious connection between the Houthis and Iran.  That is basically the whole point of the war, to give the idea that MbS and MbZ have good reason to attack the always vaguely bad Iran (at some future point).  It is the worst premise for a war, ever.

"Is The U.S. Using Force To Sell Its LNG To The World?" (Berke).  One of the striking things about Trump is his unabashed use of the entire resources and reputation of the American state for the benefit of particular friends of his.  Of course, this kind of corruption goes on all the time, but Presidents usually try to hide it.  Here he is boasting about sticking his nose into NAFTA negotiations for a very, very specific purpose to benefit NFL owners to the extent of a surprisingly small amount of money:  "Trump says he fixed an issue the NFL had with Canada when Obama didn’t".

"Roosevelt Wanted to Spread Jews Thinly Throughout the World So They Could Cause as Little Harm as Possible" (Diversity Macht Frei).  Quite reasonable, with no 'denying':  "An Apology for Adolf Hitler" (Klingenberg).

"Aux Barricades Mes Enfants!" (Giraldi).  Almost all of these efforts are phony PR stunts by the usual suspects, but this march looks legit.
