HUGE issue

"Russia quizzes US on coronavirus’ parentage" (Bhadrakumar).  Both Russia and China seem to have gotten through to Trump that his deep state has done vile things of which he was unaware.

"Notes: The Industrial and Neoliberal Origins of COVID-19 (aka SARS 2.0)" (Levine).  I'm pretty sure this one came out of a lab, but the wider point remains valid.

"Beyond Chutzpah: US Charges Venezuela with Nacro-Terrorism" (Harris).  Assholia is by far the world's biggest narco-state.

"Liberty University Brings Back Its Students, and Coronavirus Fears, Too" (Williamson).  Another example in the long line of the sheer destructiveness of organized religion.  I assume Liberty can now be sued out of existence by the victims or their families.  Some background on the grift:  "‘Someone’s Gotta Tell the Freakin’ Truth’: Jerry Falwell’s Aides Break Their Silence" (Ambrosino) and  "Jerry Falwell Jr., and the allegations against him, explained" (Coaston), and Peak Christian Evangelism (!), "The Saga of Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Bizarre Relationship With a Miami Beach Pool Boy, Explained" (Bort).

"The Governors vs Bolsonaro: An interview with Brian Mier".  We should not forget that massively destructive crazies like Bolsonaro are in power only because of their support from Christian Evangelists.  On de Carvalho.

"The Contrarian Coronavirus Theory That Informed the Trump Administration" (Chotiner).  A rather brutal take-down of an idiot by his own words.  Epstein doesn't seem to be smart enough to realize what's happening.  A sobering example of how status in academia has nothing to do with actual ability, and that this status can be abused with horrible consequences.

"The missing six weeks: how Trump failed the biggest test of his life" (Pilkington/McCarthy).  What you will never read is that Trump was too preoccupied at the time to concentrate on the issue, due entirely to:
  1. impeachment proceedings which were entirely run by Khazars (it is utterly amazing how almost nobody noticed that, when it was so strikingly obvious);
  2. Khazar billionaire pressure - no doubt from the MEGA Group blackmail - to assassinate Soleimani and start the War For The Jews against Iran.
The extreme luxury of hosting parasites led directly to the pandemic becoming much worse than it needed to be.

"Louisiana Governor: 'Never A Hint' From Feds That Mardi Gras Posed Virus Risk" (Red Painter).  This is just disgusting buck passing.  Mardi Gras and Spring Break went on when the politicians knew exactly what was happening, but local businessmen didn't want the gravy train stopped.  All these politicians committed mass murder.

"Black Swan author Taleb urges UK to let Branson’s airline go bust".  This should be the general rule.  The way things are set up now, the worst grifting and incompetence is rewarded!

"We Are All Totalitarians Now" (Durocher).

'Due to the Holocaust': tweet (Alexander Dukes):
"The issue with this whole thread is that the US and ESPECIALLY Europe would culturally have a HUGE issue with doing all that. We would rather be soft-quarantined for months than trace ppl. Europe especially is not going to let you trace people's whereabouts due to the Holocaust."
Hilarious collection by Niqnaq, including the advantages of having a religious nut as Minister of Health!:  "the haredim continue to congregate for weddings, brits etc as if the pandemic wasn’t happening".  This would be wonderful if we could only find a way to keep them away from the rest of us.

"The Hedge Fund Bailout Worked: Citadel, Millennium And Point72 Recover Most Of Their March Losses" (Durden).  (((Millennium))) and (((Point72))), which is the continuation of a criminal organization (and the real basis of the TV show 'Billions').

100% true:  tweet (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad):
"Hundreds of billions of dollars were injected into US businesses to counter the effects of Corona.If the money came from taxation, then the Americans are paying from their pocket , but if it comes from
the Federal Reserve, then all nations are paying ."
On the Trump/President Jared tax break: "The stimulus bill includes a tax break for the 1%" (McCaffery).

Tweet (Ajit Singh) (Switzerland is really getting slammed):
"let's hear it for Western liberal democracy 👏👏👏"
Tweet (Mark Ames) (I'm not sure how the massive hit to the insurance industry is consistent with the story that the industry will save money as so many people can't get access to medical attention):
"Next: Bailout bum Trump will feed a few hundred billion more to the health insurance industry. AOC will make a gesticulating speech that blue checks will retweet with commentary on how impressive it is. This country’s a fucking joke."
Tweet (Paul Graham) (also):
""Government officials and executives at rival ventilator companies said they suspected that Covidien had acquired Newport to prevent it from building a cheaper product that would undermine Covidien’s profits from its existing ventilator business.""
"Why Houthis offered Saudi POWs swap for jailed Palestinians" (Younes).  The Houthis are clever at PR.  Here they remind the Arab world that Saudi Arabia is run by crypto-Jews who persecute Palestinians.

Matthew Yglesias thread on Biden, which involves a visit by Chris Arnade, resulting in Matty's (preserved here):  "Seriously, fuck you".

'Lucky':  "Jeff Bezos sold $3.4bn of Amazon stock just before Covid-19 collapse" (Neate).
