Enormous disfavor

It is always inspiring to watch a young woman come to Washington and start the first tentative steps at building her shekel collection.  The ongoing story of 'The Visit'.  I give her six months before she transforms into Nikki Haley.

Wow!:  "American Pravda: Oddities of the Jewish Religion" (Unz).  A snippet (and the comments are . . . lively):
"Obviously, the ritual murder of Christian children for their blood was viewed with enormous disfavor by the local Gentile population . . . "
It looks like the Helsinki summit was two old pals getting together to determine how best to deal with the only important issue of our era, the protection of the Khazars from the Persians.

Hilarious recent history of football in Croatia: "The Woes of Luka Modrić: Croatia, Nationalism and Football" (Kampmark).

You know your military alliance against Country X is in trouble - or, perhaps, that the whole thing is a sham, and everybody knows it - if you have to keep asking the members of your alliance to stop buying weapons and service contracts from Country X!:  "NATO Summit Tells Member States to Get Rid of Russian Weapons" (Gorka).

"Majority Of Clinton Emails Funneled To "Foreign Entity"; When IG Told Strzok - He Completely Ignored" (Durden).  Pakistan, Britain, or Israel, or some combination?  Since Strzok and Horowitz and Comey and Clapper clearly really did not want to know which country it was, I'm guessing either Britain or Israel, or both.  Note also the two ignored whistleblowers.

"SYRIA: The White Helmet Exodus Managed by ‘Regime-Change’ Coalition" (Beeley).  Like the ISIS and al Qaeda fighters returning home after their atrocity vacations in Syria, these scum are toxic waste, about to be received with open arms by the countries which abetted the false-flagist war against Syria.  Tweet.

Another famous cold case, April Tinsley, dna-ed, and quickly:
  1. "Cold Case Heats Up";
  2. "Police release updated rendering of suspected Tinsley killer";
  3. "New forensic DNA analysis produces image of cold-case killer at large";
  4. "Suspect in Tinsley killing appears in court"; and
  5. "Grabill man charged with the cold-case murder of April Tinsley".
The dirtbag in question is generally considered to be as rotten as they come.

The parable of the map

"Fighting Fake Stories: The New Yorker Serves Up A Doozie" (The Polemicist).  Despite all appearances to the contrary, we're supposed to believe that Americans are good, well-meaning people, who are just a little under-informed, with the lack of information, or even being tricked by sneaky outsiders (often, quietly implied, by Le Merchant), being the sole cause of all the atrocities that occur in their wake..  A recent version of this is that most Americans, and the Democrats who represent them and 'American values', are good, but Trump is bad (but a temporary problem).  Since no discernible difference in effect in the real world is visible to the naked eye, and in many ways Trump's real-world performance seems preferable to Killary-Barry's, a lot of retconning is required to shape the facts around the Democrat narrative.

Sudden concern for the law

"Collection of domestic phone records under the USA FREEDOM Act" (Electrospaces).  A story that went by without much notice, but when you think about it, it makes no sense.  Since when did the NSA dump data because of privacy concerns, or the law?  What if two terrorists were planning a terrorist act against Americans, wouldn't break under the usual American torture, and the only available evidence was on those phone records!  It's the stuff of NSA nightmares:
"In the public statement it is said that the massive metadata deletion follows from the NSA's "core values of respect for the law, accountability, integrity, and transparency" but outsiders speculated about other motives: were these records destroyed before the Trump administration could misuse them?"

She went up to her apartment and then she jumped into the chute

Pretty obvious timing, it's essentially treason, but attempting to block peace and interfere in positive international relations isn't recognized as treason in Assholia:  "Mueller indictment ‘aims to spoil’ Trump-Putin summit – Russian Foreign Ministry".  "No Evidence In Mueller's Indictment Of 12 Russians - Release Now May Sabotage Upcoming Summit".

"Trump’s Trying to Save Brexit by Provoking a “Deep State” Coup Against May" (Korybko).  Trump subsequently walked this back, but it was a fairly obvious assertion of Trump's refusal to follow the accepted standard that allies don't interfere in each other's internal politics.  Of course, the background is that the American Deep State wants Brexit for purely selfish reasons, so that it can then 'save' Britain with a huge US-British trade deal on terms disadvantageous to Britain.

"A New World Order: Brought to you by the Global-Industrial Deep State" (Whitehead).  Marred by anti-Trumpism, when Trump is just a clarifier, a guy who can't, or can't be bothered to, follow the norms of obfuscation.

"Syrian Army Raises Flag in Daraa, Cradle of Failed Revolution" (Abazeed).  Tweet (STAND WITH PALESTINE).

"Trump Threatens Iran with “Escalation;” Could it Spin out of Control?" (Cole).  The American terms, prescribed by Bibi (and MbZ), would be no less than regime change - literally rule by some descendant of the Shah! - so it is impossible to conceive of how this could be negotiated.

"Conspiracy of Silence: Israeli Government Still Covering Up Historic Atrocities".  One of the most interesting aspects of Zionism is how the Khazars, as a supremacist group collective, have managed to, and been allowed to (under threats of being slurred as an 'anti-Semite'), maintain a 100% stranglehold on all aspects of their vile history.  The only slight opposition to this is from select Khazars themselves, as part of the 'dialectic' to confuse the goyim into believing it is not as bad as it seems.  See also how they use lawfare, the Khazar control of the courts coupled with their massive financial ability to ruin any opposition, to stifle dissent:  "From Holocaust Industry to Judicial Industry" (Kara-Mustapha).

Also:  "NGO Gets Court Order To Seize Gaza Flotilla To Compensate Terror Victims".  The abuse of the legal system to further Khazar supremacist goals seems to be built into the Khazar mindset.

We don't know for sure

"Pepe Escobar: China's Silky Charming Of Arabia".  "China and Africa" (Natsin).  Who could possibly have known that diplomacy and development would work so well?

"Don't Get Out of Syria" (Cafarella).  Goyim, I . . .

"Germans Actually Want US Troops Out Of Germany, Poll Finds" (Durden).  Who could possibly have known that people would object to the presence of an occupying army?

"Kushner Middle East “peace” plan involves a Palestinian sell-out" (Madsen).  Dahlan pops up whenever the Khazars need a helpful Palestinian traitor.

"New Legislation Will Allow Israeli Settlers to ‘Own’ Illegally Occupied West Bank Land".  It remains the most baffling mystery in the world how these sweet people keep finding themselves in trouble.

"Italy will not buy F-35s anymore, mulls walking out of existing contracts – Defense Minister".

"Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox churches to re-build sites in Syria." (Lang).  "A Two-Pronged Attack on Orthodoxy and Russia" (Jatras).  Fascinating tale of the convoluted liturgical conspiracies involving Ukraine.  It pays to increase your word power:  tomos and autocephaly.

"The 1943 Volyn Massacre and Ukrainian Nazis Today"  The Poles are reliably, some might say stupidly, anti-Russian (except when it comes to things like buying gas for themselves), but the enemy of my enemy is my friend must sometimes give them pause.  More complexity - the Poles have admitted hundreds of thousands - perhaps a million, and growing - of economic refugees from the failed state of Ukraine.

"Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu’s interview with Italy’s Il Giornale full version":
"Since US lawmakers and experts have been calling on the US government to clarify its strategy for Syria, our country is not the only one who does not get it.

In recent years during the continuation of this war, illegal from the point of international law, and even according to the US constitution, the official explanations for the presence of the US military contingent in Syria have been constantly changing.

I would like to recall that initially it was about defeating the ISIL, then about preventing re-emergence of the ISIL and now statements are being made about need to preserve military presence in Syria in order to deter alleged influence of Iran.

Therefore, it is hard to shake off the impression that the United States’ chief objective in Syria is to prevent the situation from stabilizing, to prolong the conflict and undermine the country’s territorial integrity by creating enclaves not controlled by the government on Syria’s borders.

In the areas controlled by the United States for years they have been training militants, who are actively fighting with the Syrian government army and receiving supplies of weapons and ammunition.

In addition, it’s not superfluous to recall that during the struggle of the US-led international coalition against ISIS, the territory controlled by terrorists only increased. Civilization and secular governance persisted only in a few pockets: in Damascus, the province of Latakia and partly in Deir ez-Zor.

At the same time, while declaring its ‘noble’ objectives and ‘good’ will in recent years, the United States has not allocated one cent of aid to provide real assistance to Syrian civilians devastated by long years of war. This applies even to the liberated by the United States and the coalition former capital of ISIS Raqqa, where munition and mortars left after massive bombardments by the “international coalition” still kill local residents. Every week, dozens of people are being killed, including children.

On the other hand, not a single incident involving civilians has been recorded after the Syrian troops’ operations to liberate various regions and localities. Demining activities took place there, people received food and construction materials they needed to resume a peaceful life as soon as possible.

If there is some basis for our American counterparts’ actions in Syria, it is too contradictory to be called a “strategy.”"
"Tulare County Sheriff’s cold case detectives say former Exeter police officer is a suspect in the murder of Jennifer Armour of Visalia" (Ellis).  It is a cliché to blame all the unsolved crimes on the latest apprehended serial dirtbag, but DeAngelo appears to have been so prolific, and had the additional cover for a time of being a police officer, that it is credible that he was responsible for many crimes that have been blamed on others or are still unsolved.

Big-brain piece of the month (maybe of the year):  "Why Was Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 Shot Down?" (van der Pijl) (strikingly straightforward timeline!; the commentators mostly hate it for its consideration of the deep politics rather than answering the question in the title):
"Still in Brazil before flying back to Moscow, Russian president Putin on the fringes of the football world cup finals also agreed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to pursue a comprehensive Land for gas deal. Its tentative provisions included normalising the status of Crimea in exchange for a massive economic rehabilitation plan and a gas price rebate for Ukraine. However, a special European Council meeting convened on the 16th could not reach agreement on whether the EU should follow the American lead this time, since countries with export interests to Russia and dependent on its gas, were balking. Instead, the Council stressed the EU’s commitment ‘to pursue trilateral talks on the conditions of gas supply from the Russian Federation to Ukraine’ in order to ‘safeguard the security of supply and transit of natural gas through Ukraine.’
The downing of MH17 on 17 July changed all that. As I said above, who did it and how remains obscure, although there are several pursued by people familiar with local circumstances, or revealed by insiders who know who which military assets were operating that day—but all that remains inconclusive. The official reports by the Dutch Safety Board and the JIT may be conveniently dismissed although the DSB rightly pointed at the questionable decision by Kiev to allow civilian planes to fly over a war zone. However, irrespective of the actual perpetrator, and whether it was an intentional act or an accident, there is no doubt about the West’s intent to exploit the event to the maximum.
Former secretary of state and then-presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton in a TV interview on the 18th called for making ‘Russia pay the price’ once its culpability had been established. Her to-do list for the EU included, one, ‘toughen sanctions’; two, find alternatives to Gazprom, and third, ‘do more in concert with us to support the Ukrainians’. The ‘Land for gas’ negotiations were shelved and on the 22nd Europe dropped the remaining hesitations when it underwrote the US sanctions targeting Russia’s role as an energy supplier. As Mark Leonard, founder and director of the European Council on Foreign Relations, noted in a newspaper interview a year later, without MH17 it would have been pretty difficult to find sufficient support for the increased sanctions on the Russian economy’."
and:
 "The downing of Flight MH17 also definitively sealed the fate of South Stream. Russian banks financing the project, led by Gazprombank, were hit by new sanctions, so that the necessary capital could no longer be raised internationally. Putin earlier had hinted at moving the transit of gas for the EU to non-European countries; in August, it was reported there was a Plan B in the works to export via Turkey. On 1 December 2014, during a state visit to Ankara, the Russian president announced that in light of Western sanctions and the refusal of construction permits in the EU, South Stream would be replaced by a ‘Turkish Stream’ pipeline, besides the existing Blue Stream link. However, in November 2015, a Turkish F-16 shot down a Russian fighter jet over northern Syria, throwing relations between Moscow and Ankara into a deep crisis and entailing the cancellation of Turkish Stream. This was only overcome after the July 2016 coup attempt against Erdoğan, in which Russia sided with the Turkish president, possibly even warning him in advance. Since the F-16 that shot down the Russian jet was part of a pro-NATO unit based at Inçirlik airbase that took part in the coup attempt, the incident over Syria would appear to fit in a framework that may also have decided the fate of Flight MH17: a provocation to throw relations with Russia into disarray, but we don’t know for sure."
Part of The Clarification is that nobody - and least of all Trump! - still bothers to cloak the crass financial interests of the Assholian 1%, not to mention the supremacist aspirations of the Khazar bribers/blackmailers, behind platitudes like 'human rights' or 'international law'.  Trump visits Europe wanting to sell US gas to Europe, wanting to block Putin's successful interference with the building of the Zionist Empire, and wanting to slow down the steep and accelerating decline of American imperial reach.  Everything else follows from that.  At least with Trump, the Eurotrash can't make any plausible claim that there were sweet talked by a charmer like Barry into falling for the same old bullshit once again.

Most of what we wanted

"At Any Cost" (van Creveld)"
"Ben Gurion, original name Green, himself was born in 1886 to a lower middle class family in Plonsk, north of Warsaw. Much later it was claimed that, to become a top level Zionist-Israeli leader, one had to be born within 500 km. of that township. As he told the story, around 1900 the news reached his ears that the Messiah had come. He lived in Vienna, had a black beard, and, was called Herzl."
and:
"World War I caught him in Constantinople where he had gone to study law. Unable to return home he spent most it in London and the U.S. Living in New York he and a friend—Yitzhak Ben Tzi, who later became Israel’s first president—spent some of their time writing a book about Eretz Israel. It was meant to show that, contrary to the views of many, the country was sufficiently large and fertile to serve as the Jewish homeland. Also that the Arabs—no one yet spoke of Palestinians—living in it were, in reality, the descendants of the ancient Jews and could therefore be converted back to Judaism. Whether this claim was seriously meant is hard to say."
and:
"Already in the early 1920, Ben Gurion was determined that there would be a Jewish State, be the cost what it might. Already then he foresaw that the struggle against “the Arabs”—as yet, no one had heard of Palestinians—would be prolonged, tough, and bloody. Already at that time there was talk of the need to “evacuate” as many of them as possible to the neighboring countries. Meaning, since the Promised Land was considered to include not just the West Bank but territories east of the river Jordan, as far away as Iraq. He knew about the Holocaust at an early date and from that time on always felt terribly guilty for not having done more to save Jews, many members of his own family included. Not that there was much he could have done, one must admit

During the late 1940s he did more to instigate and support anti-British terrorism than most people at the time knew or suspected. He was something of a racist, believing that only Ashkenazi and not Sefardi Jews could build a state and often favoring “Western” immigrants at the expense of “Oriental” ones. He did not really want the 1956 Sinai War, but was pushed into it by his disciple, Chief of Staff General Moshe Dayan. He always kept in mind the possibility of one day occupying East Jerusalem and the West Bank; something which, his military advisers told him, would take no more than a couple of days."
"Teachers lose jobs for sharing anti-Israel views with students" (Klein):  "particularly obnoxious parents".

"It’s the Wrong Park! How the Ducks Raise Some Serious Questions in the Salisbury Poisonings" (Slane).  Leads credence to the idea that the second poisoning was a result of the victims stumbling upon material used in the attack on the Skripals (also, amazing that this big insight is coming out now from a keen-eyed reader).  I wonder if these second victims found a bag with some white powder in it, the rest of the BZ used on the Skripals, and snorted it, as one does with random white powders found in parks.  The second attack by British intelligence would have been so audacious - everybody noticed that the Porton Down proximity can't possibly be a coincidence - that it is plausible that this was, indeed, an accident, the result of sloppy work in the field.

"Nearly two decades on from Nato's deadly bombing of civilians at Varvarin in Serbia, the wait for justice continues".  Fisk has been on fire recently.  NATO.

"Trump’s Using Russian Gas Rhetoric to Control Germany and Support Poland" (Korybko):
"Trump’s Russian gas rhetoric therefore needs to be seen as part of the holistic Machiavellian strategy that it is in forcing Germany’s full capitulation to America and its eventual replacement in importance with Poland, which is driven by the President’s ideological affinity with the Warsaw-led EuroRealist model of nation sovereignty that he openly favors over Berlin’s EuroLiberal globalist one of elite control. Germany’s grand strategic position has never been more precarious since its reunification, and for the first time in a generation Europeans can realistically imagine a future without its dominance, albeit one that’s brought about by the US’ “readjustment” of its “Lead From Behind” approach to hegemonically “managing” continent."

"David Brock's BLINDED BY THE RIGHT Said Kavanaugh Called Hillary A Bitch, But Brock's Earlier Hillary Book Said EVERYONE Called Her That" (Fulford).

NATO funding

I see some of the asshole commentators from Assholia are agreeing with Trump and complaining that Europe and Canada are freeloaders, not paying their fair share with respect to NATO.  NATO is an American proxy army.  Full stop.  It has no other purpose, and everybody knows that.  There is zero chance of a Russian invasion of Europe, and the mere idea is ludicrous.  One penny spent by anybody else on this monstrosity is a pure gift to the American assholes, who should be grateful for it.  Europe should tell Trump to go fuck himself.  If he wants to withdraw the US from NATO, please hurry up about it.

It is even worse than that.  NATO is not an American proxy army, it is a Zionist proxy army.  Rich Khazars bribe or blackmail politicians from Assholia to fight Wars For The Jews, and that's where NATO is used.  Its only possible purpose is to assist rich Khazars in illegally killing people and stealing their land, all to build their evil supremacist empire. When you get right down to the facts, NATO is a multi-billion dollar white elephant that exists so that rich asshole politicians from Assholia, just like Trump, can accept bribes from Khazars in return for wars.  Why would any sane and moral country provide any funding for that?

Trump Putin MbZ

"Israeli, Saudi, and Emirati Officials Privately Pushed for Trump to Strike a “Grand Bargain” with Putin" (Entous):
"During a private meeting shortly before the November, 2016, election, Mohammed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, floated to a longtime American interlocutor what sounded, at the time, like an unlikely grand bargain. The Emirati leader told the American that Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, might be interested in resolving the conflict in Syria in exchange for the lifting of sanctions imposed in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

Current and former U.S. officials said that bin Zayed, known as M.B.Z., was not the only leader in the region who favored rapprochement between the former Cold War adversaries. While America’s closest allies in Europe viewed with a sense of dread Trump’s interest in partnering with Putin, three countries that enjoyed unparallelled influence with the incoming Administration—Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.A.E.—privately embraced the goal. Officials from the three countries have repeatedly encouraged their American counterparts to consider ending the Ukraine-related sanctions in return for Putin’s help in removing Iranian forces from Syria."
and:
"Nine days before Trump’s Inauguration, Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater and a confidant of Steve Bannon, met at M.B.Z.’s resort in the Seychelles with Kirill Dmitriev, the head of Russia’s sovereign wealth fund, whom the Emiratis used as a go-between with Putin. (An April, 2017, Washington Post story that I co-wrote revealed the Indian Ocean encounter and stated that “the UAE agreed to broker the meeting in part to explore whether Russia could be persuaded to curtail its relationship with Iran, including in Syria, a Trump administration objective that would be likely to require major concessions to Moscow on U.S. sanctions.”)

Mueller’s team has also focussed on Trump transition-team meetings in December, 2016, that involved Emirati and Russian officials. One, at a New York hotel, was attended by M.B.Z., and another, at Trump Tower, was attended by Sergey Kislyak, then Russia’s Ambassador in Washington. During the December 1, 2016, meeting between Kislyak and Trump’s transition team, both sides wanted to discuss the conflict in Syria, and the Russian Ambassador proposed arranging a conversation between Michael Flynn, the incoming national-security adviser, and people he referred to as his “generals,” according to congressional testimony by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser. To prevent intelligence agencies from eavesdropping on the conversation, Kislyak proposed using a “secure line,” prompting Kushner to suggest using the secure communications gear housed at the Russian Embassy in Washington."
and:
"Israeli officials lobbied for rapprochement between Washington and Moscow soon after Trump’s election victory. In a private meeting during the transition, Ron Dermer, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States and one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s closest confidants, said that the Israeli government was encouraging the incoming Trump Administration to coöperate more closely with Putin, starting in Syria, with the hope of convincing Moscow to push the Iranians to leave the country, an attendee told me.

Like M.B.Z., Netanyahu made courting Putin a priority, particularly after Russia’s military intervention in Syria in 2015. The Israeli leader wanted to insure that Israeli forces could continue to access Syrian airspace, which the Russians partially controlled, to prevent the deployment of advanced weapons systems by Iran and its proxies that could threaten the Jewish state. A senior Israeli official declined to comment on Dermer’s message but said that “Israel does believe it is possible to get a U.S.-Russian agreement in Syria that would push the Iranians out,” and that doing so “could be the beginning of an improvement in U.S.-Russian relations over all.”

Separately, a former U.S. official recalled having a conversation after Trump’s Inauguration with an Israeli Cabinet minister with close ties to Netanyahu in which the minister pitched the American on the idea of “trading Ukraine for Syria.” The former official told me, “You can understand why Russia’s help with Syria is a far higher priority for Israel than pushing back on Russian aggression in Ukraine. But I considered it a major stretch for Israel to try to convince the United States that U.S. interests are well served by looking the other way at Russian aggression in Ukraine. Of course, Trump may disagree for his own reasons.”"
So much for the 'human rights' of Ukrainians, traded for a useless promise of keeping Iranians out of southern Syria!  It is also rather striking that the countries with abnormal access to, and influence over, Trump, are not Russia, which is instead part of the horse-trading scheme proposed by other countries which do have so much influence they can propose ridiculous schemes which aren't even well thought out.

Also (the cynicism!):  "Major Israeli Daily: Our Government Is "Arming Neo-Nazis In Ukraine"" (Dueden).

"Iran Sanctions Are Different This Time" (Cunningham).  You can almost see a path free to rational American decision making, but the Americans, under the strict Khazar yoke, can't follow it.

This scheming could work out fairly well, if Russia gets the sanctions lifted with no change in the status of Crimea (and is re-legitimized internationally by being allowed back into the G-7, er, 8), and presumably some side promise not to have the Ukrainians start WWIII - thus completely screwing the Ukrainians over.  Putin won't be able to deliver on any promises made on Iran, and everybody knows this, so presumably the Gulf/Khazar conspirators will be looking for some other concessions from Putin in the near future.  If jiggling in hydrocarbon production is required, Putin is your man.

"The sad fact is that the pretense of U.S. global leadership now consists of a basket of new “rules” that are both arbitrary and basically illegal supported by pretexts that are essentially fabricated."

Were told

With the resignation of Boris Johnson, the murder of Dawn Sturgess by forces within British intelligence starts to look like part of a coup plot to replace May with Johnson.  Boris was all over the false-flag attack on the Skripals, to the point of outright and obvious lies, but was noticeably quiet about the British intelligence murder of Dawn Sturgess (he was actually in complete seclusion with his aides scheming his moves).

Tweet (colin horgan):
"key paragraph of Boris Johnson's resignation letter is the second one. the British people "were told," he writes, that with Brexit, they could do all sorts of things. they were. and it was Boris Johnson who told them."
"BREXIT - Still Not Gonna Happen" (Moon).  The argument that the Conservatives couldn't possibly be as incompetent as they are demonstrating, so there is a Remain plot afoot.  The problem is they would lose a re-referendum, for the same reasons as Trump, Brexit, Corbyn, etc, but magnified due to the obvious political shenanigans.

"Chief medical officer calls for decriminalization of all drugs for personal use" (Mathieu).  The people of Canada want it, but the pharmaceutical industry would lose its precious, precious profits, so 'more study is required'.  You don't ever see more obvious corruption than politicians and drugs.

"The Persecution of Rafael Correa" (Emersberger). We're in the middle of quite the world-wide roundup of all the main faces of dissent.  The 0.1% appear to be a bit shaken, and want to ensure everybody else is scared off.

"Jonathan Chait: Is Putin Trump's Peer -- Or His Handler? A Theory" (Madrak).  "New York Magazine: Kooky Kike Jonathan Chait Pens 8,000 Word Theory Claiming Trump’s Been a Russian Agent Since 1987" (Anglin) (Daily Stormer versus Crooks and Liars is never flattering for the latter).  Sailer ("Mental Illness").  "The Guardian’s Marina Hyde accuses actress Susan Sarandon of being Trump’s “asset”" (Walsh).  Greenwald's run-in:  "MSNBC Does Not Merely Permit Fabrications Against Democratic Party Critics. It Encourages and Rewards Them."  Everybody they don't agree with is a 'Putin asset'.

"Hardcore Hitler on Hitler in Helsinki" (C. J. Hopkins):
"Look, I’m not a fan of poofter humor, or the corporate media, or the so-called “Resistance,” but neither am I a fan of Trump, nor am I, technically, an employee of Putin. What I am is a student of propaganda, media manipulation, and mass hysteria, and though I experienced the roll-out of the War on Terror, and assorted other propaganda campaigns (like Obama’s “Hope and Change” routine, Reagan’s “Morning in America” schtick, George H.W. Bush’s “New World Order,” and Bill Clinton’s “Third Way” happy horseshit), I have never witnessed anything like this. Most of those other propaganda campaigns at least bore some vague resemblance to reality. What we’re experiencing now is more akin to the kind of behavior that goes on in cults … where people are conditioned to surrender their reason (and, ultimately, to conform their perception) to whatever paranoid official narrative the leader of the cult has invented, and eventually to direct their fear and hatred, not only at the cult’s official enemy, but at anyone who questions the cult’s “reality.”
If you believe cults work because people are gullible, or stupid, you need to do some research. Cults work because their members are gradually conditioned to detach from “society” (i.e., the social body that conditioned them as children) and conform to the social body of the cult. This conditioning happens systematically, often over the course of years. Scientology cult members are not introduced to the “body thetans” story the day they walk in. Nor were the Manson girls ready to butcher a house full of people for Charlie at first … it took months of orgies, acid trips, and other de- and re-programming techniques to get them to buy into his paranoid prophecy of Imminent Racist Hippie Apocalypse.
Which is what I find so disturbing, presently. The ease with which the neoliberal ruling classes have programmed millions of Western consumers to believe a narrative no less ridiculous than Scientology’s “body thetans,” Manson’s “Helter Skelter” … or take your pick of any number of other cult narratives. The speed at which they switched from the War on Terror narrative to the Putin-Nazi narrative attests to the power of the corporate media and the neoliberal propaganda machine, generally. It really is an amazing achievement. In less than two years, they managed to condition a significant portion of the Western masses to forget about “the Islamic terrorists” that they had been conditioned to live in fear of, and to transfer their fear and hatred to Trump, and Putin, and anyone who appears to support them, or doesn’t sufficiently hate and fear them."

"The Most Intolerant Wins: Nassim Taleb Exposes The Dictatorship Of The Small Minority" (Taleb).  Intransigent minorities get their way over flexible majorities, even where the upshot is clearly irrational.  We're seeing a bit of push-back these days from the asshole right, which push-back is called 'intolerance'.

NONATO

I'm sure the Conservatives are glad for the distraction from Brexit, but this second 'novichok' false-flag attack, and consequent murder by the government of one of its citizens, must be about NATO, and the terror that the Putin-Trump summit might put an end to NATO, with repercussions both for careers and profits.  Trump has a history of falling for false-flag chemical attacks in Syria, and this murder is a desperate effort to put an end to the summit with some Trump petulance.  The second huge issue is that the summit might put an end to Yinon dreams of the Zionists for Syria, not to mention finally winding down the travesty that continues in Afghanistan.

An area thick with possibilities

"Nothing about the latest 'novichok' attacks adds up" (Coyle).  I'd quote from it, but it is all good.  You'd think a big part of chemical and biological weapons training, these days, involves setting up a false-flag attack, or even, one step more meta, managing a false-flag attack that has already occurred.  These might be exercises that, for political purposes, were turned into something more.  Maybe the relevant proximity isn't to Porton Down itself, but to the Salisbury Plain Training Area.

Added:  "UK: Dawn Sturgess dies after exposure to nerve agent Novichok".   The Brits are now being murdered by their own government for the crime of not taking said government seriously enough.  Boris and Theresa aren't capable of even pretending to keep their own citizens safe, and in fact are willing to risk lives to change the subject from their own incompetence and the stark contrast with Putin's successes, and you'd think that fact might be cause for political unrest.

Two autopsies

"All EFF’d Up" (Levine).  "Silicon Valley Will Not Save You from the Surveillance State" (Swanson).  It is probably time for us to stop assuming that the self-nominated protective organizations, funded by the Bad Guys, are actually going to protect us from the Bad Guys (duh!).  I'm not sure how we ever fell for this.

"The Creeping War against Iran is Still on the Cards" (Sheikh).  When Trump, against his initial best instincts, brought Bolton with him to Singapore, the upshot was that Trump had to cancel the South Korean-American military exercises (done so quickly as to surprise the South Koreans), and give Kim a still secret side letter no doubt containing promises of American sanity, all on the basis that Bolton's mere presence spooked Kim (Bolton was also prominent when Trump went ape-shit at the shambolic G-7 meeting).  Everybody in Iran knows who Bolton is, and that he is a paid employee of the MEK crazies, so this color revolution is doomed from the start, and we have John Bolton, and the peculiar inability if the Americans to keep him hidden, to thank for that.  Sheldon paid good shekels for him, and he'll be damned if everybody at synagogue can't see what he bought!  The assholes can't even be assholes in a competent manner anymore.

"The Mystery of Robert Knudsen" (Hornberger):
"If Knudsen was telling the truth, and there is no reason to doubt that he was, then it is clear that on the weekend of the assassination, he photographed a procedure that he believed was the president’s autopsy and that he was made to believe was the president’s autopsy but actually wasn’t the president’s autopsy. It is also clear that whoever convinced Knudsen to believe that he was photographing the official autopsy also swore Knudsen to secrecy by telling him that the entire procedure he was photographing was classified.

The mystery of Robert Knudsen is compounded by the testimony before the ARRB of Saundra Spencer. She was a U.S. Navy petty officer who worked in the U.S. Navy’s photography lab in Washington, D.C., in 1963. She had a top-secret security clearance and worked closely with the White House on top-secret, classified photographs. No one has ever questioned the integrity, professionalism, and competence of Saundra Spencer. As with Knudsen, it would be difficult to find a more credible witness than Saundra Spencer.

The reason that Spencer was summoned to testify before the ARRB in the 1990s is that the ARRB had learned that on the weekend of the assassination, she had been asked, on a top-secret basis, to develop autopsy photographs of President Kennedy’s body. Pursuant to the culture of secrecy and classified information in the military, Spencer kept her role in developing those autopsy photographs secret for some 30 years, until she was summoned to testify before the ARRB.

During her testimony, Spencer was shown the official autopsy photographs of the President’s body. After carefully examining them, she testified directly and unequivocally that the autopsy photographs in the official record were not the ones that she developed on the weekend of the assassination. She stated that the autopsy photographs she developed showed a large exit-sized wound in the back of President Kennedy’s head, which matched what treating physicians at Parkland Hospital had stated. The photographs in the official record show the back of Kennedy’s head to be fully intact. A large exit-sized wound in the back of the president’s head would, of course, imply a shot fired from the president’s front.

After Spencer’s testimony before the ARRB, no one came forward to challenge, question, or dispute the truthfulness and accuracy of her testimony.

What are we to make of Knudsen and Spencer?

There are two conclusions that can be reasonably drawn: First, the official autopsy of President Kennedy, which was carried out by the U.S. military, was fraudulent and, second, there is no conceivable innocent explanation for having carried out a fraudulent autopsy."
"EXCLUSIVE: Child porn charge against brother of Las Vegas gunman is THROWN OUT after his lawyer claims the case was 'prejudiced' because an LA deputy district attorney's daughter was killed in the mass shooting". Is the Las Vegas shooting actually part of a convoluted cover-up of a child porn trafficking ring?  The Official Story has taken quite a beating, and now this, with no part of the alleged reasons for the dismissal making any sense!

The brain is much more important

"Syria - OPCW Issues First Report Of 'Chemical Weapon Attack' in Douma" (Moon).  Tweet (Tim Hayward):
"Is it possible that the BBC TV News lies so blatantly about a report that is there for the world to read? It says OPCW confirms chemical attack when OPCW report explicitly states that it can not."
Tweet (Ali Abunimah):
"Liberalism at home, fascism abroad: US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, hero of liberals and Democrats, is more than happy to support the Israeli apartheid regime by accepting Genesis Prize backed by Netanyahu government and far right funders."
"Decision in Hassan Diab appeal delayed".  Don't you hate it when the big bags of shekels don't arrive on time?  I'm not joking - I'm sure this is the problem as the French bureaucrats and 'judges' in their 'justice' system have to delay their yacht payments.

"There should be a fully independent public inquiry to prevent any repeat of the injustice done to Hassan Diab" (the writers are Canadian political bigwigs):
"Documents obtained by the CBC and released on May 1 reveal that it was Canada’s Department of Justice lawyers who advised French authorities to come up with “new” handwriting analysis evidence against Dr. Diab when the case was on the verge of falling apart, and without justifying reasons, requested multiple delays and adjournments. Despite such activity, the Department of Justice senior counsel subsequently denied in court any knowledge of the plans of the French. He also had advised French authorities to send him fingerprint evidence on a document signed by the suspect to compare with Dr. Diab’s fingerprints as such evidence could be very powerful in getting Dr. Diab extradited. When the fingerprint analysis excluded Dr. Diab, the results were not disclosed to the court or the defence even though it was Canadian gathered evidence."
One good start would be to never, under any circumstances, even consider extradition of anybody to a country as Khazared-up as France.  What a fucking embarrassment!  And shouldn't some people in the Canadian Department of 'Justice' be in jail over this?

"The Alt-Right, the Ctrl-Left, and the Esc-Center" (Greer).  A devastating attack on American liberals, but the suggested way forwards sounds like libertarianism (close to the Silicon Valley politics we're always hearing about).  You'd think there might be some room to suggest a fixing of the left, as the problems faced by seemingly everybody now all turn on the fact it is the left that is broken.

I think the left is broken, not for deep doctrinal reasons, but because bring broken pays better:  "Canada’s NDP’s Claim to ‘Dialogue’ with Palestinians a Cruel Joke" (Engler).

Also:  "Right-wing, Fascist-supporting Tilt among Canada’s NDP" (Engler). The Clarification in Canada came from that asshole Mulcair, who made it apparent that the NDP was a fascist party posing as socialist. The tragedy is that most individual members and supporters of the party are well meaning, many even (secretly) woke, but the structure of the party leads to consistent asshole leadership.  Not to put to fine a point on it but, as usual, they have a 'donor' problem.  By the way, despite recent problems, don't believe anything you read suggesting that Trudeau is in political trouble.  Both main opposition leaders are terrible, with outright potshots being taken now at the completely ineffective Conservative leader, and the loud and proud terrorist-supporting leader of the NDP can't even be bothered to obtain a seat in Parliament.

The ways things are playing out, Trudeau's metoo problem is fixing his soyboy problem, making me wonder if ti isn't a Liberal trick:  "Chad Trudeau Says He Did Nothing Wrong When He Groped a Slut" (Anglin). 

"If the novichok was planted by Russia, where’s the evidence?" (Jenkins).  How did this make it into the Guardian?

"Was Imran Awan Spying for Israel?" (Bacon).  The logic is inescapable.

""Hurry The F Up": New Strzok-Page Email Reveals FBI Scramble For Dirt On Trump Campaign" (Durden).  They were fixated on finding probable cause for FISA warrants against members of the Trump campaign.  The FBI knows this is a huge problem for them, and has done everything possible to cover it up:  "Today Is The Deadline For The FBI To "Come Clean"" (Durden).

Goyim, I  . . .  "We already gave Syria to Putin, so what’s left for Trump to say?" (Ross).  Rabid blood-pouring-from-the-fangs Zionist nonsense is so common in Washington as to be invisible, allowing Khazars to write the most amazing things without fear of being challenged..

"Trump-Putin Summit Flushes Out the Russophobes".  It's the lack of shame in warmongering, which in the past used to be at least slightly disreputable.

"When did Russia’s S-400 become the New Black" (Black).  Russia sells weapons because they avoided the American corruption culture of military procurement and built machines that work.  The irony is that the Russians had no choice but to get good at building weapons as their economy was so decimated by Yeltsin's decision to follow the helpful advice of the 'American' Khazar experts to turn the entire Russian economy over to thieving Khazar oligarchs.

The thing we keep seeing, The Clarification, is that there is no good will or effective well-meaning people in the world, just facts on the ground obtained by fighting for them.  Assad beat Evil because he didn't give up in the face of impossible odds and went out and killed it.  If the Houthis and people of Yemen are going to survive, the Houthis are going to have to go out and kill a big pile of the MbS/MbZ mercs.  Israel, The Beast (with its lovely people), is going to die under a hail of Hezbollah rockets, not by well-meaning 'liberal' Khazar BDS activists.  If Assange gets out, it won't be because of the numerous human rights issues, but because somebody manages to convince the assholes that more dangerous things can be done to them if they don't let him go.  The predominant role of 'human rights' campaigners - and they can't possibly be so stupid as not to know this - is to confuse the issue, and hope to prevent the abused from fighting back.

"NED Pursues Regime Change by Playing the Long Game" (Hunt).  Not a secret, they actually boast about it.

"Understanding the Conflict in Nicaragua: the Long Battle Against US Imperialism" (Stein-Della Croce).  "Nicaragua, unraveling a plot" (Arias Fernández).  With the current American obsession with immigration and the plight of children, it is hilarious that, until very recently, and due to the salutary leadership of the Sandinistas, Nicaragua wasn't a failed state 'shithole' under American influence, and thus was not an immigrant-producing country to the US.  You won't see this inconvenient fact mentioned by either American political party.

"Trump’s Regime Change: Soros-style" (Madsen).  The business model for Soros for decades has been to foment against a government or governments, while placing big financial bets against its currency.  Supporting color revolutions (cheap, particularly if the American government provides most of the funding), and talking up disruptive things like mass immigration, is just part of the currency speculation.  The mass suffering to goyim caused by this is literally of no concern to him at all.  Another thing, the Republican-Democrat divide means nothing to the Khazars, who will work with whichever goy is available to advance their supremacist interests.  The Barry-Trump switch was no problem at all.

Say what you will about Trump, but this is unarguably wonderful:  "Trump Goes on Nonsensical Rant About Elton John, Organs and ‘the Brain’".

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?
"
I'll leave this here: "Constitutionally, we can shop around: The case for making a Japanese royal our queen" (Hopper).

"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.

Strong human rights elements

"Israel is arming neo-Nazis in Ukraine" (Winstanley):
"A spokesperson for the Canadian defense department later sent a statement claiming that their “training of Ukrainian Armed Forces through Operation Unifier incorporates strong human rights elements.”

They said Canada is “strongly opposed to the glorification of Nazism and all forms of racism” but that “every country must come to grips with difficult periods in its past.”

The spokesperson, who did not provide a name, wrote that Canadian training “includes ongoing dialogue on the development of a diverse, and inclusive Ukraine.”

The statement said nothing about how alleged Canadian diversity training goes down with the Azov Battalion."
It messes up the narrative when Jew hatred is the worst thing in the world, and stopping it is the ostensible motive for numerous wars and planned wars, but the Jewish state and its lackeys arm actual neo-Nazis.

The Amesbury Mystery"(Murray):
"If it is however true that two separate attacks have been carried out with “novichok” a few miles either side of Porton Down, where “novichok” is synthesised and stored for “testing purposes”, what does Occam’s razor suggest is the source of the nerve agent? A question not one MSM journalist seems to have asked themselves tonight."
"Anti-Russian Blood Libel in the UK Again – More Fake Poisonings, This Time of Random British People" (Anglin).

"Kushner gives Israel’s military-intelligence sub-state a blank check" (Madsen). Did you notice how President Jared had his security clearance - lost for giving classified information to MbS - quietly restored right after he returned from his embassy victory trip to Israel?  The (((media))) clearly wanted to underplay this story as much as possible.

More on Trump's anti-MAGA position on Venezuela:  "‘Why can’t the US just simply invade?’ Officials say Trump pushed U.S. military overthrow in Venezuela" (Queally).  You know you've had a terrible idea when the Colombians reject it.

"Venezuelan Presidential Elections: An "on the Ground" Canadian Perspective" (pdf). Yet the official Canadian government position is the ridiculous one that is just a rubber stamp of American State Department PR.  The official Canadian government position is to always back up the positions of the Americans, as part of an understanding that this will lead to American reasonableness on things like trade.  Look how that has worked out!  "An Open Letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Venezuela" (Páez Víctor). 

It is embarrassing to do all these dick moves for your asshole master, and get fuck all in return.  "Trump Threatens Canada: “Defence” Community Remains Silent" (Engler).  "Ten Reasons Canada Should Get Out of NAFTA" (Orchard).  There are some Canadians who are just right about stuff generally:  Suzuki, Barlow, Gwyn, Hellyer.  Engler and Orchard are in that group.

There's a surprising sudden outburst of populist grassroots anti-Americanism in Canada at the moment.  People have started to go out of their way to avoid American products.

"Washington Moves Against Rafael Correa" (Roberts).  Part of The Clarification is that Trump breaks every polite understanding that hid his, and his predecessors', status as Kings of Assholia.

The microagressions have really taken a toll

"Trump pressed aides on Venezuela invasion, US official says".  In a month or two, Maduro will refer to the possibility of an American invasion in a speech, and the asshole Americans will scream 'crazy conspiracy theory'!

Speaking of assholes, what kind of country - other than the two asshole countries, Israel and the USA - does this kind of thing, repeatedly?:  "30 Years Ago Today, U.S. Shot Down a Passenger Plane Killing 290 Civilians and Covered It Up" (Blevins).  Lots of countries pull dick moves from time to time, but only two countries pull only dick moves.

"Upon Israel’s request, Twitter closes Hamas, Hezbollah accounts".

"US official to Israeli diplomat: “This is our fuckin’ house”" (Alexis). Sometimes the 'Goyim, I  . . . ' gets a bit too much even for the Americans!  Of course, the shekels arrive, and they always cave in the end.

The Saudi and UAE mercenaries have bogged down in what was supposed to be their cake walk capture of Hodeidah, and the Houthis are successfully hitting Saudi targets.  "Yemeni, Saudi and UAE forces hit rebel positions outside Hudaida".  "Another Setback for Saudi Arabia and UAE in Yemen". "Saudis say child wounded in Yemen rocket attack".

"The Battle in the South of Syria Is Coming to an End: Israel Bowed To Russia’s Will" (Magnier).  The poor Khazars are stuck, having to wait for President Jared's Royal Decree of what more will be stolen from the Palestinians and bestowed on them.

"Syrian Army Uncovers Massive Haul of Western-Made Weapons for Rebels".

"Riveting Thai cave story was missing one element — Israel to the rescue!" (Weiss).  This is intended for American audiences, as Asians are typically born woke, lacking exposure to the life-long massive PR campaign that we all suffer under.

"Q, Conspiracy, and the Novel; or, Why Portraits and Ashes Should Be Your Summer Read" (Pistelli).  There is a curious high-level, almost official, promotion of a /pol/ poster.  This phenomenon isn't unheard of.  From time to time really obscure conspiracy theorists find favor with the elites (of course, if popular enough, they get elevated from 'conspiracy theory' to 'history').  Somebody wants us to think Trump is winning at his 4D chess game.  The goal is to encourage quiescence from the true believers who fear Trump has fallen into the swamp.  One more step of meta is that this particular essay is an ad for a book!

"Britain’s Most Censored Stories (Non-Military)".

"Wheel Out the Skripal Story Again" (Murray):  "Russian-created".  "British Government Peddles Warmed Over Skripal Muck" (Moon).  After all the practice they've had, you'd think the British government would be better at this kind of PR operation.

A palate cleanser, so to speak, from Whittaker Chambers emptywheel, and turning in your colleagues for working for the Ruskies:  "Mueller Looking Into Report That Trump Defecated Out a 30th Story Window in 1997" ('Greenberg-Cohen').

"Conservatives Mock "Resistance" With "Second Civil War Letters" After Portland Antifa Goes Down Hard" (Durden).  Historically, the talent for this kind of thing was all on the 'left', but this is quite clever, falling in line with the meme culture.  The predominance in satire seems to correlate with political success.

emptywheel, Mall Cop

Tweet (Aaron Maté):
"Can those breathlessly sharing this post explain why, & what it reveals? It says Trump transition wanted to talk Syria w/ Russia, which we already knew. And that she then reported a source to FBI, which raises Qs. "
The truly bizarre piece in question: "Putting a Face (Mine) to the Risks Posed by GOP Games on Mueller Investigation ".  She's like the mall cop that's always wanted to be real police, or, in this case, real IC.  The spy-fighting, Ruskie-battling 'journalist' brings in a suspect!

On Flynn, Mueller seems to be having difficulties on pulling the trigger on the sentencing ("As Manafort Battles FBI, Mueller Gives Flynn Another Unexpected Reprieve"), and the Trump supporters believe that is because the basis of the case against Flynn, his lying to the FBI, is subject to controversy within the FBI itself, which will come out if one unquestioned agent testifies (see "What Happened During the FBI Interview With Flynn?" and "Why Has Joe Pientka Not Been Subpoenaed?").  Manafort is just a very bad dude that Trump should have stayed well away from, but, much as I dislike Flynn, his framing reeks of prosecutorial and FBI misconduct, and the early peacemongering and diplomatic operations of the Trump Administration are exactly what they should have been doing.

Google is a person / exceptional conduct

"Feeding the Monster" (Giraldi).  How they actually act is a huge problem for Khazars, requiring massive control of the (((media))) to suppress.

"US Jewish leader expresses compassion for refugees at US border– and contempt for Palestinian refugees" (Weiss).  The unabashed hypocrisy of 'American' Khazar 'human rights' advocates regarding immigration and borders is a big theme of the alt-right.

"Ron Paul 'Inadvertently' Lets Staff Tweet Racist Nazi Image" (Kuns).  "Ron Paul Blames Shockingly Racist, Anti-Semitic Tweet On Staffer".  "Madlad Ron Paul Tweets A. Wyatt Mann Cartoon Blasting Jew “Cultural Marxism”" (Sol).  Le Merchant makes Le News.  I like how the media plays dumb and describes the character as an anti-Semitic stereotype, pretending not to recognize the cartoon.

"Prince William’s Trip to Israel" (Dickinson).  Arms dealer news.

Classic scoundrel news:  "Former Malaysian Prime Minister Razak Arrested".

Bathhouse Betty, part of The Clarification.

The greatest American comedian working today is the aptly named Anne-Marie Slaughter:  "Has the New America Foundation Lost its Way?" (Cohen) (my emphasis in red):
"The ousted staffer, Barry Lynn, was a critic of big tech companies and headed Open Markets, a New America program on corporate power and monopolies. Earlier in the summer, he had gone out of his way to praise the European Union for fining Google $2.7 billion for antitrust violations.

The chairman of Google’s parent company at the time, Eric Schmidt—who, along with his foundation and Google, had by that point donated nearly $20 million to New America—was not pleased, Lynn told the Times, and called Slaughter to say so. Lynn was informed that his actions had endangered the institution, and he was ultimately fired.

The debacle raised all sorts of questions about New America’s coziness with corporate funders, and as staffers gathered in the conference room—across the lobby from the “Eric Schmidt Ideas Lab”—they were impatient for answers. Many worried that the think tank’s intellectual integrity had been compromised, and they feared for their reputations. What would happen the next time someone’s work ran crosswise with the interests of a big donor?

Instead of stanching the anxiety, Slaughter stoked it. According to a recording of the meeting, she said that while she recognized that the standard in journalism was never to show sources what you were writing, New America’s “norm can’t be that. We’re an organization that develops relationships with funders. And you know, these are not just black boxes; they’re people. Google is a person, the Ford Foundation—these are people. . . . And particularly when they give you money, which is really a nice thing . . . basic courtesy I think requires—if you know something really bad, you say, ‘Here’s a heads-up.’ ”

Things spiraled from there. Slaughter insisted that Lynn left not because he had criticized Google but because of the non-collegial way he’d handled himself. Many couldn’t believe the contradictory responses they were hearing. “The whole spectacle left me feeling really sick to my stomach,” recalls an employee who later left the organization. “It became clear they were going to respond to this ordeal with a whole lot of bureaucratic whitewashing.”"
and:
"“This story is false,” Slaughter had tweeted the morning the article was published. Several hours later, she tweeted that the “facts are largely right” but the “interpretation is wrong.” After getting blasted on social media for the vague and tone-deaf responses, she issued a full statement two days later, asserting that Lynn had not been fired because of pressure from Google and apologizing for using Trumpian rhetoric to discredit the Times.

Slaughter also pointed to a forthcoming book by one of its then fellows, Franklin Foer. World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech argues that Silicon Valley poses a threat to civil society.

The invocation took Foer by surprise. A few months earlier, as he’d been preparing for the book’s release, he’d sensed the think tank was backing away from it. First, he says, the organization informed him that his New York book event would no longer be primarily hosted by New America and that the viewpoints represented on the panel would need to be “balanced.” Foer had attended many other New America book events and knew “balance” was not a typical requirement for what are mainly celebratory events for fellows. Still, he agreed to the conditions.

“But after the fact,” he says, “I learned that the development officer, Meredith [Hanley], had a meeting where she freaked out about the prospect of my book causing blowback for New America from Google and was putting pressure on the fellows program to try to somehow dampen their association with it.”

Then came the Open Markets brouhaha, and suddenly, Foer says, “after running away from my book, they started to run towards it in an effort to launder their reputation.”
(Foer now sits on the board of the Open Markets Institute, Lynn’s splinter organization.) A spokesman for New America says, “The people who did attend the meeting Frank heard about secondhand have a different recollection, but the fact is we like Frank, we like his work, we funded the writing of his book, and we promoted it heavily. We believe it is critical to the conversation.”
It’s not as if New America was alone in its interactions with corporations. Brookings and others have been called out in recent years for alleged coziness with funders. For its part, New America has said it doesn’t allow donors to influence its work. “We have never had an instance of a funder shaping what we do,” Slaughter told her staff in September."

"The Supreme Court’s deference to the Pentagon" (Hornberger).  For a court that seems to pride itself on being so legally rigorous, in a country obsessed with its constitution, everything flies out the window when the Pentagon come calling wanting to oppress Muslims.  They don't even pretend to care about the Constitution.

"False Flag Fail: How Syrian Civilians Derailed White Helmet ‘Chemical’ Stunt in Eastern Ghouta" (Beeley).  It sometimes seems hopeless, but woke civilians can block a false-flag attempt by refusing to go along with it:  "“They told me – ‘how can an area get hit by chemical weapons by the Syrian government and  then hours later residents in the same area, are raising the Syrian flag?’."

Apaer from the obvious and tragic signs of having received the 'visit', Ocasio-Cortez is quite impressive:  "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back at Newsmax Host Publishing False Info About Her Background: 'How Scared You Are'" (Preza).  Here she tangles with the big dogs, and wins on the basis of rigorous thinking.

Tweet (Ben Norton):
"Capitalism is barbaric.

Every day thousands of sick and wounded people refuse medical treatment because it is so obscenely expensive in this sociopathic privatized capitalist system that exists only to generate enormous profits, not to serve human needs."
Not rigorous thinking.  All other capitalist countries have managed to run functioning health care systems.  It is not an issue with capitalism, it is an issue with the particular assholery of Americans. I suspect, as usual, that the deep issue is that single payer is considered to be 'gibs', and American racism is so powerful that Americans are willing to ruin their own lives so that others don't get 'gibs' (racism is also behind the unique attitude of Americans towards guns).

"7 Months After Fake Flynn Story "Epic Mistake", ABC Quietly Lets Brian Ross Go" (Durden).  Who knew that making shit up was still occasionally a firing offense in today's 'journalism'?  I note that Marshall has started to back off on his breathless accounts that Cohen was going to flip and send Trump to jail.

"Freedom Rider: No protest for black people" (Kinberley):
"Liberal white Americans will latch onto almost any injustice that isn’t directed towards black people as a group. Non-black immigrants, LGBTQ individuals, or anyone else can have their grievances acted upon quickly. Gender-neutral restrooms appeared like magic overnight for the small transgender community while the numerous ways in which millions of black people are attacked go unaddressed."
There is actually some glee in the racist right that liberal advocacy for Latinx children is squeezing out rights for American blacks.  Black majority cities, with consequent political power, are turning into 'Mexican' majority cities, thus progressively making American blacks politically irrelevant.
