Beach reading

Tweet (Rutger Bregman):
"So this is Rupert Murdoch reading my book on universal basic income, the 15-hour workweek, and open borders around the globe. I'm sure he'll love it. "
"Senate’s first order of business: Remove roadblock to independent investigation into egregious Acosta/Epstein plea deal":
"Broward County U.S Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent a letter to the IG last month, signed by 14 other congressional leaders and attorneys, calling for the IG to investigate Acosta. Her office has since been monitoring the bill’s progress.

“Majority Leader Mitch McConnell must immediately allow the Senate to take up and pass the Inspector General Access Act,” Wasserman Schultz told the Herald Editorial Board in an email. “This legislation would empower the Justice Department’s internal watchdog to review any non-prosecution agreement giving serial sexual predators sweetheart deals, shielding their co-conspirators, and denying victims their day in court. Obscene travesties of justice such as that perpetrated by Mr. Acosta must be exposed and eradicated.” The congresswoman is on point."
One thing I know for certain is that Wasserwoman Schultz doesn't really want anybody looking too closely at a Mossad honeypot and Dersh's clean-up job that ensued.

The Clarification:  "“Liberals” and “Progressives” Resist Ending America’s Wars" (Giraldi). Assholians divide themselves up into groups for the purposes of their own entertainment, or in some cases just to be able to live with themselves and what they do, but it is all the same shit coming out.  Related:  "Why France’s Yellow Vest Protests Have Been Ignored by “the Resistance” in the U.S." (Parry) (though guilty of the same pigeonholing that is a big part of the game of the people he criticizes).

"Giuliani Says Assange Should Not Be Prosecuted" (Lauria).  Giuliani seems to be Trump's political  id, and is allowed to say the things Trump would like to say but can't, with Trump then shrugging it off saying how much he loves Rudy but you can't believe a damn thing he says.  Given the strange way they have arranged to have Assange imprisoned, the Americans would have to order the Brits to back off for the time required to allow Assange to flee, but I don't know how Assange could possibly trust the Americans or Brits.  I think he has to wait for Corbyn to be elected.
