More Soros

"The 2020 Election: Bourgeois Democracy Meets Global Governance" (Johnstone).  "Greenwald: America's Social Fabric Is Fraying Severely... If Not Unravelling" (Greenwald).  I rarely cite the concentration camp guard's supremacist organ, but this has some excellent advice for Biden, which won't be followed as the Dems seem determined to keep Biden out of the public eye:  "This Is How Biden Loses" (Packer).  Two tweets by Michael Moore.

"Kenosha Goddam: The Rot at the Top Goes All the Way Down" (Floyd).  Over-the-top Democrat navel gazing.
"Look at this boy. Imagine what kind of vile poison has been poured into his young mind for years by some of the wealthiest, most powerful people in the land -- indeed, the world. Rupert Murdoch, first and foremost. Donald Trump. The Mercers. The Sinclairs. The DeVos clan. The Kochs. The whole network of extremist billionaires funding hate groups and "think tanks" churning out justification for the domination of society by rapacious, unaccountable elites. The Falwells and Robertsons and other con artists growing rich on the utter perversion of the religion they falsely profess. The social media networks that have gleefully and profitably let floods of hatred and lies stream across the globe, day in, day out. The Republican Party – all of them, even the "moderates" like Lamar Alexander or Susan Collins, who have sat by silently as a gangster and his goons took over the US government, who have supported the gangster and Murdoch and the Kochs and the Mercers and all the rest.
This boy – living, like so many, in a violent, hate-soaked, hallucinated reality created, for profit, by the rich and powerful – is fully responsible for the evil he has committed. But I tell you this. Rupert Murdoch is also responsible for these murders. Donald Trump is also responsible for these murders. Lamar Alexander is also responsible for these murders. All those who have weaponized and/or monetized hatred and ignorance; all those who have profited from the denigration and destruction of the very notion of the common good, of human commonality, of the inherent worth of every single human being; all those, throughout "respectable" society, who looked away while these tides of hatred were rising, fuelled by the rich and powerful -- oligarchs and corporations who bribe and fund and call the tune for both parties – all of them are also responsible for these murders.
The murderous rot in this country starts at the top, and it has spread all the way down, into the very minds of our children. We are in a much darker and more dangerous place than most of us can bear to contemplate (myself included). But we must brace ourselves, for we have not yet, even now, seen the worst of what's to come. We must be ready, with eyes open; we must be steadfast, even with despair battering our hearts. And, heeding the words Bob Dylan sang 40 years ago, we must fight, always, to strengthen the things that remain."
Or, I suppose, he was a young man who cared about his country, saw Soros employees wrecking it (it is quite something that the three men he hit all had criminal records, and bad ones), and tried to do something to help (attending with a gun wasn't wise, but in the wacko world of Assholia it is hardly abnormal).  The second two shootings were undoubtedly self-defense, and I lack information to decide on whether the first one was, although it seems highly unlikely he just randomly decided to shoot somebody for no reason.

"Biden’s Chances Rest on a John Podesta-Planned Military Coup, Ballot Harvesting, Police Shootings, and a False Flag" (Flores).
