Hillarize him!

Khable khar khontrol.  You have to acknowledge the inventiveness that goes into all the stealing (still the definitive documentary on the building of the Jewish state).

Hillarize him!  "Clinton: I don’t recall joking about droning Julian Assange".  Since others heard her, she could not outright deny it.

Forthwith to be always known as Shekelhead.  Creep.

"Also, perhaps notable, is that instead of approaching Wikileaks, the leaker decided to go with The Intercept this time."  Omidyar has business interests that require a kindly eye from US government regulators, so staking your entire life on the integrity of the Intercept is literally insane.  WikiLeaks has a 100% safety rate, based over a number of years and considerable leaks, and protocols in place to avoid this kind of debacle.  You could also probably put the stuff up on some server in Eastern Europe, China or India and using as much anonymity as you can muster communicate the address to various journalists.  In today's world, if the content of your leak is compelling - this one, not so much - you no longer need the imprimatur of some fancy credentialed 'journalist' to draw interest.

"The Shocking Trigger Behind Today's Gulf Scandal: Qatar Paid Al-Qaeda, Iran $1BN In Hostage Deal".  Unlikely, as the Saudis are hardly going to object to payments to their al Qaeda proxy army, but perhaps overpaying Iran this was regarded as the last straw in what was perceived as over friendliness to Iran (who knows what makes the crazed Prince Salman mad).  The list of countries that the Saudis are seriously messing with includes Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Qatar.

"Three potential motives behind the tension between Qatar and its Gulf neighbours".  The Saudi princes are terrified of the Muslim Brotherhood, which they see as the only credible replacement for them, and Qatar consistently supports the Muslim Brotherhood.  The tension falls from time to time, but it is always there.

"Mark Ames: When Mother Jones Was Investigated for Spreading Kremlin Disinformation".  Ha!  Remember when RealPlayer was the worst, the last player you would use under any circumstances!

"The Cause of the Opiate Epidemic".  No (and from the same blog which I once thought was smart, this atrocity).  The response to despair is cultural, in this case the culture of the current medical concept of pain management, coupled with the distribution of specific, and particularly toxic, pharmaceuticals.  The extreme toxicity of this particular remedy means that suicide is easy and accidental/semi-accidental overdoses are easy.  The people raking in the dough are from a small supremacist group that does not give a fuck about 'excess deaths' as the victims are outside their group:  "Opiates: “Death on the Prescription Plan”".  Sometimes the 'Nazis' are just smarter.

"Even the Torah May Not Protect Ukraine’s Corrupt".

This ought to be fun ('Billions II'):  "Steve Cohen Hoping To Raise $20 Billion For Re-Launch Of SAC Capital".
