Winging it / psychic hot line

"Sri Lanka Blasts: Terrorism Targets Another Chinese Ally" (Cartalucci):
"The New York Times has reported in its article, "What We Know and Don’t Know About the Sri Lanka Attacks," that:

The authorities in Sri Lanka said a little-known radical Islamist group, the National Thowheeth Jama’ath, carried out the attacks, with help from international militants.
It is also reported that these extremists received assistance for the large-scale attack from foreign sponsors. The attack has put Sri Lanka on the map for many in the general public for the first time - but for all the wrong reasons.

Sri Lanka has recently and decisively pivoted toward Beijing as a major partner of the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative. This is despite Washington's best efforts to prevent it from doing so.

Consequently, extremists fuelled by Washington's "clash of civilizations" have helped set the stage for growing violence between Sir Lanka's majority Buddhists and its minority Muslim communities. The resulting violence serves as a medium for US coercion, destabilization, and intervention aimed at undermining Sri Lanka's unity as a nation, and thus its viability as a partner for China.

A nearly identical ploy has been used in nearby Myanmar where US-backed Buddhist extremists battle against US-Saudi-Qatari backed extremism rising from the ranks of the nation's Muslim Rohingya minority.

The resulting violence and growing humanitarian crisis - without coincidence - is unfolding in Myanmar's Rakhine state - precisely where China is attempting to build another leg of its region-spanning OBOR initiative.

Sri Lanka has signed on to OBOR in a big way, with major rail, port, airport, and highway projects all moving forward with Beijing's support. Sri Lanka is also considered by Western policymakers as one of several among China's strategic "String of Pearls," strong points where China can secure maritime routes through waters traditionally dominated by the United States."
Tweet (Bryan MacDonald):
"What makes this absurd is that Ukraine's incoming President, Vladimir Zelensky, isn't fluent in the Ukrainian language, preferring to use Russian. Which means Ukraine's parliament has passed a law enforcing a tongue for official business which he can't use."
I'm waiting for the first unilingual Spanish speaking President of the US.

"Ex-Nazi death squad member loses fight to restore Canadian citizenship" (Keung).

"Mueller Report Reveals Russia Taped Bill Clinton Having Phone Sex With Monica Lewinsky" (Durden). Oh, gosh.  Washington Examiner, owned by Christian fruitcake Philip Anschutz..  (((Dimitri Simes ))), whose (((mother))) was a big 'human rights' lawyer in Russia, involved in springing terrorists justifiably in Russian jails to Israel, like (((Sharansky))) (it seems almost quaint now compared to the unspeakable horrors that came after, but the big Khazar treason of the Reagan years was directed at jail-breaking these terrorists for anti-Soviet PR reasons, and of course for Khazar group supremacist solidarity).  (((Monika Lewinsky))), of the famous Mossad blackmail op against Bill.  And yet another phony attempt to blame the Russians for illegal surveillance shenanigans that actually came out of the American IC!

Also note that (((Simes))) himself has been under attack by a guy named (((Yuri Felshtinsky))) ("A couple of years later he decided to emigrate from the Soviet Union to Israel travelling first to Vienna.[2] But instead of going from Vienna to Israel he went further to the United States where he arrived in April 1978 and there subsequently continued his studies."), for being a Putin agent!:  "Who is Dimitri Simes And Why Is He Trying To Sink Mayflower? Investigation by Yuri Felshtinsky" and "Putin’s Troika: Three Russian Agents Who Infiltrated the Trump Campaign" (Olear).  You know the feeling.

"Jared Kushner, Not Maria Butina, Is America’s Real Foreign Agent" (Giraldi). There is not a shred of evidence that Butina did anything wrong - she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when it was politically expedient in Washington to arrest a Russian for something espionage-y - but if FARA was enforced every Khazar in Washington would be in jail.  Every fucking one!

There seems to be an awful lot of weird Washington right-wing folklore buried in the Mueller Report.

"Trump promotes conspiracy theory that UK helped Obama administration spy on his presidential campaign" (Embury-Dennis).  "Conspiracy theory".  James Bond, having been caught red handed, is nervous.

"From the Folks Who Lie, Cheat and Steal for a Living — Project Fake Duck" (Slane).  The Brits, rather than working off a well pre-planned script, were essentially, um, winging it, thus leading to all the contradictions in the Official Story.

"Why Aren't Hate Hoaxes Considered Hate Crimes?" (Sailer).  "We found evidence of a crime. It just wasn’t a hate crime". "Barry and Honey Sherman murder case: Police have working theory and ‘an idea of what happened’" (Donovan):
"The police investigation has also recently received “279 tips” from lawyer Brian Greenspan and the team of private investigators who are employed by the four Sherman children in what was referred to in court as a “parallel investigation.” These are tips, court heard, that came to the Greenspan team following the posting by the Sherman family of a $10-million reward. The Star asked if Detective Yim was aware that some of these tips came from psychics who had called into the private investigators’ tip line. Yim said he could not reveal any information about the contents of the tips, including whether they were of value, though court was told they came to the police in weekly batches beginning on January 4 of this year."
"Meet the National Gallery of Canada's new director: 'What's good for art is good for Canada and for the world'" (Hum):
"In 2009, when Mayer, a Franco-Ontarian originally from Sudbury, took over as the director, he inherited an institution that was in turmoil due to high-level staffing squabbles.

Last month, in an exit interview with this newspaper, Mayer spoke of his accomplishments, including bolstering the status of Indigenous art, Canadian contemporary art and photography at the National Gallery, overseeing extensive renovations to the building, and expanding the National Gallery’s global reach for contemporary art.

Mayer’s tenure was marked in its final year by the National Gallery’s aborted attempt to sell its Marc Chagall painting La Tour Eiffel to fund another acquisition."
