Brittle spirits

Tweet (William Dalrymple):
"Israeli judge asked the Palestinian girl Ahd al-Tamimi: "How did you slap our soldier?" She answered : "Remove the handcuffs so I can show you how.""
"Shmuley Boteach’s unhinged attack on Lorde will only help the movement to boycott Israel" (Gupta).  Violent racist group supremacists always make the same mistakes in their fury at being disrespected by their inferiors.

Tweet (Caleb T. Maupin):
"So, a UK spy agency has been caught setting up fake twitter accounts, pretending to be Iranian. #IranianProtests #Iranprotests People I know on the ground tell me these protests are actually rather small. #Iran"
And of course you as would expect, the (((media))) has been reduced to replaying tapes of previous protests, or even playing tapes of large protests in other countries, in order to create the illusion that there is large-scale dissent in Iran.

"John Bolton: “Our Goal Should Be Regime Change In Iran”" (Wallace).

"Blind Items Revealed #40" (CDaN).  The murdered actress is Heather O'Rourke.   From the comments:
"This photo of Heather & SS gives me the willys. http://themillenniumreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/heather-michele-orourke_214479_5.jpg"
"Canada’s foreign policy annus horribilis" (Lam). Canadians are going to be paying the price for Trudeau glibness for decades (and having an actual Nazi as foreign minister doesn't help).

"More Ukrainian New Year greetings to the world: Torchlight parades in honor of WWII collaborators; OUN March now official hymn of the Ukrainian Army".

"How a Liberal Scholar of Conspiracy Theories Became the Subject of a Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory" (warning: non-Farrow New Yorker link!).  The click bait title makes you read it so you'll see who is being unjustly treated.  A Cass article without one mention of the ol' ball and chain!

"Let's End the Israeli Tie-That-Binds" (Giraldi).  "President Trump’s Jerusalem Decision: the End of Hegemony?" (Petras).  So is it better to throw Jared into a dungeon now, or wait until he wrecks the entire, awful, American Empire?  "America's Imperial Decline Might Be Our Last, Best Hope to Salvage Our Democracy" (Bacharach).

"Her doctor gave her a list of things she had to do before he would give her Adderall, and she – having ADHD – got distracted and never did any of them."

"Dave Chappelle Pokes Fun at Louis C.K. Accuser in New Netflix Special":
"“One lady said, ‘Louis C.K. masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams,’” he says in the bit. “Word?’ Well then I dare say, madam, you may have never had a dream. Come on man, that’s a brittle spirit. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much, this grown-ass woman.” He also mentions Schachner’s story more specifically. “I know that sounds fucked up, I’m not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, ‘Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him,’” Chappelle says. “Bitch, you don’t know how to hang up a phone? How the fuck are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams?”"
