Maple washing

"Israel lobby slaughters Corbyn again" (Winstanley).  Sounds like an invitation to start a Real Labour Party, ideally quietly judenrein.

Tweet (Ben Norton) (it all makes sense, and only makes sense, goyim, when you realize that the only entities with human rights are human beings, and Khazars are the only human beings, qed):

"The director of the Americas division of billionaire-funded "Human Rights Watch," José Miguel Vivanco, lobbies for murderous US sanctions on Venezuela and Nicaragua while smearing Jeremy Corbyn as anti-Semitic.

HRW is a total fraud"

Tweet (Joe Catron) (Cohen has levels of racism-permitting Jewish privilege you can see from space) (Sailer):

"The striking thing about Sacha Baron Cohen is how favorably his gutter-level racist caricatures are received by American liberals only because they depict people from parts of the world they hate."

"How Bolivia’s new socialist senator resisted coup terror: Meet MAS party leader Patricia Arce" (Blumenthal/Norton).  I think the fact that this was a real mass movement, with credible ability to shut down the entire country, explains why the coup plotters had to give up.

"Why Canada Must Release Meng Wan Zhou" (Noh).  Maple washing.  "Meng Wanzhou scores victory as lawyers allowed to argue U.S. tried to trick Canada" (Proctor).

 "The Fight To Save Bolivia’s Lithium" (Vargas).  

"The Two Undersides to Geo-Politics" (Crooke).  Standards.

"Neoconservatives are flocking to Biden (and let’s forget about the Iran deal)" (Weiss).

"Social media's erasure of Palestinians is a grim warning for our future" (Cook).  The JQ is always everybody's problem.

We really are going to need a bloodly, violent revolution at some time, just to clean up the accumulated dreck:  "After Ottawa monument is vandalized, Ontario adopts International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s ‘working definition of anti-Semitism’" (Benzie).

How could anybody hate such a likeable bunch?!  "Jews Attack Arabs for Picking Olives Every Day" (Anglin).  "Israelis have Destroyed 1 mn Palestinian Olive Trees; this Month, they’re at it Again" (Samaana).

Politicians get better poll results than the lies provided by the (((media))), and something must have absolutely terrified the Biden campaign enough to let him out of the basement, particularly when you consider the extreme risk taken every time he opens his mouth:  tweet (Johnny Verhovek):

"Biden asked if his trip to MN is a sign of concern: “No I’m not concerned. Were gonna be in Wisconsin, so I thought I’d stop in Minnesota. I don’t take anything for granted. we’re gonna work for every single vote up til the last minute.”"

Tweet (Dimitri Lascaris) (another example of how truly mediocre, or even worse, results are shielded by Canada's proximity to the pit of iniquity, Assholia, giving truly horrible Canadian politicians a free pass):

"A new report from Canada's Chief Public Health Officer reveals Canada ranked 79th out of 210 countries in total #COVID19 cases per million, and 26th for total deaths per million, as of Aug. 22. 

A country as wealthy as ours should have fared much better."


Tweet (Max Blumenthal):

"From 2017: The Intercept withheld Snowden NSA doc that could have altered the course of the Syrian dirty war, then spun it to comport with the Syrian opposition’s narrative of the war"

A reply by Coyotl (the reason for setting it up was to intercept and hide the Snowden material, then a bunch of other stuff, and then, in Peak Irony, Greenwald himself):
"Why do you think it's called #TheIntercept ?"
Tweet (Olivia A-S):
"Shocking, awful news. Bolivian mining union (FSTMB) leader Orlando Gutiérrez has just died after he was viciously beaten by a fascist, anti-MAS gang in the wake of the elections."
"How a key Pentagon official turned China policy over to arms industry and Taiwan supporters" (Porter).  As we would naturally expect, lotsa ((()))s.

"Labour suspends Jeremy Corbyn over EHRC report comments" (Elgot/Walker).  I don't know how many times I have to say that completely cucking out is not the way to deal with Khazars.  They are extremely sensitive to weakness, and trying to be nice to them inevitably leads to your immediate annihilation.  I'm also starting to think that Corbyn's 'niceness' isn't really niceness at all, but is some sort of weird psychological problem.

"The New York Times attacks the First Amendment and embraces censorship of “disinformation”" (Reed).  The Evils of the (((Bazelton family))) is a big Sailer topic.

 "PATRICK LAWRENCE: The Damage Russiagate Has Done".  Tweet (Mark Ames):

"So the Steele Dossier that kicked off 4 years of Russiagate hysteria among the US ruling class was cooked up by two Russian alcoholics from Perm. “Gogolesque” does not begin to describe the grotesque credulity & stupidity of the American elites."

Gab (
"Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept over censorship.

"The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression.""
Tweet (Glenn Greenwald):
"My Resignation From The Intercept 
The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles. "

 "Spy agency ducks questions about 'back doors' in tech products" (Menn):

"In at least one instance, a foreign adversary was able to take advantage of a back door invented by U.S. intelligence, according to Juniper Networks Inc, which said in 2015 its equipment had been compromised. In a previously unreported statement to members of Congress in July seen by Reuters, Juniper said an unnamed national government had converted the mechanism first created by the NSA. The NSA told Wyden staffers in 2018 that there was a “lessons learned” report about the Juniper incident and others, according to Wyden spokesman Keith Chu.

“NSA now asserts that it cannot locate this document,” Chu told Reuters.

NSA and Juniper declined to comment on the matter."

"The starkest example of the risks inherent in the NSA’s approach involved an encryption-system component known as Dual Elliptic Curve, or Dual EC. The intelligence agency worked with the Commerce Department to get the technology accepted as a global standard, but cryptographers later showed that the NSA could exploit Dual EC to access encrypted data.

RSA accepted a $10 million contract to incorporate Dual EC into a widely used web security system, Reuters reported here in 2013. RSA said publicly that it would not have knowingly installed a back door, but its reputation was tarnished and the company was sold.

Juniper Networks got into hot water over Dual EC two years later. At the end of 2015, the maker of internet switches disclosed that it had detected malicious code in some firewall products. Researchers later determined that hackers had turned the firewalls into their own spy tool here by altering Juniper’s version of Dual EC.

Juniper said little about the incident. But the company acknowledged to security researcher Andy Isaacson in 2016 that it had installed Dual EC as part of a “customer requirement,” according to a previously undisclosed contemporaneous message seen by Reuters. Isaacson and other researchers believe that customer was a U.S. government agency, since only the U.S. is known to have insisted on Dual EC elsewhere.

Juniper has never identified the customer, and declined to comment for this story.
Likewise, the company never identified the hackers. But two people familiar with the case told Reuters that investigators concluded the Chinese government was behind it. They declined to detail the evidence they used."
Very informative essay!:  "France’s love affair with decapitation" (Massad).  Head lopping - not just for ISIS!

Tweet (Kawsachun News):
"Bolivia's Interior Minister @ArturoMurilloS has asked the MAS to not 'persecute' leading figures of the coup regime. When Murillo took power a year ago he promised to 'hunt down' leftists."
"The Trump administration imposes more vicious sanctions on Iran — partly to tie a President Biden’s hands" (North).  Tweet (Borzou Daragahi):
"Still can’t get over the hilariousness of the guy indicted in scheme to sell weapons to Iran now doesn’t want anyone doing business with Iran"
"The media — and social media — drive to squelch information a menace no matter who wins election" (Taibbi).  Old Rupert seems to be taking an iconoclastic stand for freedom of speech!

Tweet (Herbert West Retweeter) (Russia's greatest love machine):
"Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faces tough questions over his claims that Twitter can cure Tsarevich Alexei's hemophilia"

 Despite the full ban in coverage in the (((media))) and (((social media))), it appears some people have an interest in the subject of Hunter:  tweet (A. J. Katz):

"Tucker Carlson Tonight has achieved a new record in October, posting the most-watched month of any program in the history of cable news: 5.3 million viewers tuning into his show during the 8 p.m. hour."

"Ultimatum day in Belarus: Tikhanovskaya announces strike after Lukashenko refuses to resign, Minsk denies work has stopped" (Tickle).  "Belarus - Opposition Call For 'Crippling General Strike' Fails To Reach Workers" (Moon).  Threats of right-wing general strikes aren't very scary.

"Adelsons got a lot from Trump for $75 million — but media won’t tell you what" (Weiss/North).

"Nuking Itself… How Russophobia Led the U.S. to Bomb its Own Citizens" (Cunningham).

"Pompeo’s ‘Tokyo Kick’ Cannot Start the QUAD" (Sheikh).  In unison, 'we'll get back to you on that, you Fat Fuck'.

"Chile restores democratic rule" (Doctorow).  It has been a rough week for worthies like the Fat Fuck and The Nazi.


Does Biden get inaugurated - he wants to be in the history books - and then resign the very next day 'for health reasons'?  Or is that too much of an insult to voters?  Does he wait a decent period, say six months?  Or do the neocons keep him around as they can start their Wars For The Jews without fear of any coherent opposition?  Yeah, if you thought things couldn't get worse in Assholia . . . .

I have to admit, while the main reason I want to see Trump win is my irrational, anti-Semitic dislike of WWIII, the secondary reason is the delight I will obtain from all those salty SJW tears.  Were Jack Parsons still around, he could conjure a helluva golem from those tears.

"Recent Speeches by Putin, Lavrov and Xi Signal Fundamental Changes in the Pipeline" (O'Neill).  "When Exactly Did the AngloZionist Empire Collapse?" (The Saker).

Tweet (Mark Ames):

"Lot of people in this country have no idea what it feels like to support a party that fights tooth & nail to win, however dirty or ugly. No idea what it feels like knowing your party has your backside—instead only know losing until it’s so ingrained, losing=proof of virtuousness"

Tweet (Ben Norton):

"Fascists in the right-wing financial center of Bolivia, Santa Cruz, are openly calling for overturning the massive landslide victory of the indigenous-led Movement Toward Socialism party in the election, and instead installing a full-on fascist military dictatorship."

Tweet (Asa Winstanley):
"A day after Bellingcrap's anonymous blogger misquoted @aaronjmate (seemingly deliberately to make him appear "unimpressive") they still have not issued a correction note. 
The new "update" doesn't address the fact that they somehow managed to mangle an emailed quote from Aaron."
Tweet (Matt Taibbi) (Steele, now 100% Killary, and everybody finds out at this very late date):
"It completely changes the story. It means the Steele project was never funded by the Beacon and his sole employer for those reports was the Clinton campaign by way of Perkins Coie."
"Erdogan Is Again Under Pressure And Therefore Likely To Escalate" (Moon). I've come around to the idea that Turkey's bull-in-a-china-shop actions are sanctioned by Assholia and its boss Khazaria.

"Phone surveillance, made in Canada" (Doctorow).  5G Stingray.

Not a bug but a feature:  "Mail-in ballots: the US elites’ ‘plausible deniability’ ploy to retain power" (Mazaheri):
"The US obsession with mail-in voting is incomprehensible to the rest of the world, but the true reason behind this nonsense is never openly admitted: Mail-in balloting has been a way to ensure that the elites of both parties can contest the election if they lose, thus giving them a way to deny ultimate responsibility for their loss via presenting a way to question the integrity of the election."

"Biden’s program on Palestine is to complete Trump’s work, here’s why" (Muaddi).  Biden's normalization of Trump's normalization of all the Khazar murder and land theft.

Biden versus Serbia (there is a disturbing pattern of decades duration):  "Before the Bidens ‘Did’ Ukraine, There Was Iraq – and Serbia" (Jatras).

"The Great Rethink: Why Canada needs to return to its 'honest broker' role in world affairs" (Carmichael).  Overall, full stop on always being the second, awful, Assholian vote.  And stop the 'regime change' crap - an increasingly rejected, and embarrassing, failure - in areas south of Assholia.  

Here's Beardboy at his stupidest:  "Canada’s Trudeau hits China on human rights, ‘coercive diplomacy’".  Actually, China has been way, way, way too easy on Trudeau's hostage taking.  I'd start with a 100% end to all trade with Canada.  Beardboy would suddenly be singing a different, higher, tune.

Soros and BDS:  "Israeli Arms Trade, the Lobby and the Meaning of Chosenness" (Atzmon).  Fund BDS, emasculate BDS, while still holding it up as the epitome of Jew-hated!

Staggering to victory

"Joe Biden Forgets Trump's Name Again, Claims He Is Running Against "George Bush"" (Durden).  "It’s a Lid! Trump Campaign Staff Says Joe Biden Will Not Do Any More In-Person Campaigning Until Election" (Fairbanks).  This whole election is so symbolic of the current state of Assholia!

"'Renminbi Diplomacy': How China Bought The US Government?" (Sadiq).  "Chinese intelligence files are the Achilles Heel of the Globalists" (Lang).  The irony is, at the end of four years of relentless Russiagate, Trump is clearly not controlled by Putin (which should be apparent in a multitude of Assholian actions towards Russia), but Biden is clearly owned by China.

Everybody run for the Assholian embassy and grab onto the helicopter landing skids!:  "Time to Flee Bolivia? Jeanine Áñez Asks U.S. for 350 Visas after Arce’s Victory".  "Venezuelan Hard Right Opposition Leader Leopoldo Lopez Flees to Spain" (Vaz).

"Break in Relations With the EU? – ‘If This Is the Way They Want It, So Be It’" (Crooke).  Euro-trash.  Another good reason to hope for a Trump victory would be that it might be enough to force the 'Trash into growing up and facing the real world, but I doubt it.  And why is Britain always described as the bad guy in the 'negotiations' over Brexit?  The 'Trash can't negotiate in good faith as a 'clean' break will mean everybody else will rush for the doors.  Who would be crazy enough to willingly stay in 'Europe'?  Of course, lacking first past the post voting, and with layers of unelected/unremovable 'Trash actually running things, nobody can do anything about these morons.

"‘Pragmatic conservative’ Putin rejects totalitarian rule, but won’t embrace Western liberal democracy as Russia goes its own way" (Robinson):

"Given the Manichean, black-and-white view so many Western liberals have of the world, Putin’s rejection of Western liberal democracy as a universal model is wrongly interpreted as a rejection of democracy per se, and as an endorsement of authoritarian, even totalitarian or fascistic rule. But as his speech shows, the reality is rather more complex.

It is often said that Russia has moved in a conservative, more ideological direction since 2012. There is some truth to this, but Putin’s speech demonstrates a pragmatic flexibility that rejects rigid ideological models. This was clear in his comments on the economy. On the one hand, he spoke about “transitioning to a market economy” being a desirable goal. But, on the other hand, he argued that a pure market economy exists nowhere, that state intervention is often necessary, and that “no model is pure or rigid.”

So, how do we decide what to do, Putin asked. “Expediency,” he opined. “We need to avoid using any templates.” If there is a common theme to come out of his comments to the Valdai Club, it was that: the need to avoid templates, be they liberal, communist, authoritarian, or anything else. Putin once described himself as a “pragmatist with a conservative perspective.” That seems about right."

"Putin On The Role Of The State In The Economy" (Moon).

It is impossible to imagine either of the Assholian Presidential candidates turning his mind to these type of issues.


Interesting thread by Kevin McKernan on unanswered questions about masks, particularly whether masks take relatively safe large particles and atomize them into dangerous smaller aerosols.

Their circle of peace

Tweet (Whitney Webb):

"People who believe anonymous intelligence officials and former govt hackers turned "cybersecurity professionals" about "Iranian election meddling" would do well to remember this story from just a couple months ago."

"Syria: Six Million Displaced People Have Returned Home".  "Syrian Refugees Have Become a Tool of Duplicitous Politics" (Salah).

"The ‘left-wing anti-Semitism’ hoax" (Winstanley).

"Twitter vs. the First Amendment in Social Media Censorship" (Van Buren).  It is funny that the Khazars got us hooked on censorship on social media through worries about pedophilia, while pedophilia itself is one of the main Khazar values, and is being relentlessly mainstreamed by the (((same people))) (it is love, goyim).  Censorship is now partisan political censorship, all due to Trump's Clarification.  The First Amendement needs to be fixed (extended/reconfigured), as 18th century political thinkers had no concept of 100% control over information by (((corporations))) with (((agendas))), in this case, a clear Never Trump agenda in order to get more Wars For The Jews.

"Leaked emails suggest shocking US mercenary plot in Bolivia" (Klarenberg).  "US mercenaries accused of plot to put ‘boots on the ground’ ahead of Bolivia's crucial elections" (Sweeney).  This kind of shit is inevitable (we've already seen it against Venezuela), and will be a serious threat for the foreseeable future.  Bolivia desperately needs to fix its military on the model of Cuba or Venezuela.

Sudan tried to hold out, but then Shlomo arrived with the big bags of shekels:  "Sudan & Israel Agree To Normalize Ties In Another Historic US-Brokered Deal" (Durden).  "Sudan Bends to Trump’s Pressure to Normalize Relations with Israel" (Sahiounie).  "Sudan and Israel agree to tie the knot" (Nassar).

"Russophrenia... Or How A Collapsing Country Runs The World" (Armstrong).  All the links to fools!

It's (((unverified)))!  Why?  Because it's (((unverified)))!:  tweet (Michael Tracey):

"I love this idea that it's some kind of profound metaphysical-journalistic impossibility to verify the contents of a laptop hard-drive. As if you can't simply ask the people whose names appear in the published email correspondences. Insultingly stupid"

"Data from Bolivia’s Election Add More Evidence That OAS Fabricated Last Year’s Fraud Claims" (Johnston).

"Top 10 People to Blame if Joe Biden Loses (It’s Not The Left)" (Camp).  This is the first Presidential election campaign, at least in modern times, where one of the two candidates didn't campaign.  At all.  It is quite amazing.  Of course, Biden's handlers knew they couldn't afford to let him stumble into the real world, for the obvious late senility reasons, but still.

Funny reporting (the dead guy got the placebo!):  tweet (Rhys Morgan):
"Fuck you, WashPo. Fuck you. This person hadn’t even received the jab, they had the placebo - and then died of COVID.

"At Last, a Small Ray of Hope for Bolivia" (Karganovic).  It is no small thing to get out from under a coup so quickly, especially when you consider the lost decades, and irreparable damage, done by coups in places like Chile, Argentina, and Brazil.

Dangerous times:  tweet (Ben Norton):

"Yesterday in Bolivia, in right-wing opposition hubs of Santa Cruz and Cochabamba, extremists held rallies calling for the coup regime to overturn the results of the election and refuse to let the Movement Toward Socialism party, which won in a landslide, take power democratically"

Tweet (Ollie Vargas) (The Nazi must be crying her evil eyes out):
"With Bolivia, the OAS/US have suffered a historic defeat in the eyes of the world. Nevertheless, they're still working to impose the horrors of the Añez regime in countries like Cuba, Nicaragua & Venezuela."
This sounds like wishful thinking from the Republicans, but would turn into a real scandal if the FBI has been sitting on the laptop and its evidence of crimes, endangering this and other potential victims, for months:  "Report: Explicit Photos of Minor in Hunter Biden’s Laptop Were of a Relative — and He Was in Some of the Photos WITH HER" (Fairbanks).  Tweet (Derek Duck):
"Rudy Giuliani says he turned over Hunter Biden's laptop to Delaware State Police because of "pictures of underage girls". 
If it was JUST WORDS from Rudy alone? There'd be room to doubt. 
"CNN's Stelter Claims Toobin's Zoom Wank Was "An Accident"" (Watson).  Basically, (((Toobin))) is (((Louis CK))), without asking first.  )))People((( have been jailed for much less.

Another country makes the right choice:  "US failed to turn the Philippines against China despite maritime demarcation issues" (Antonopoulos).  I'm wondering about Australia, under extreme pressure from the Assholes, but totally fucked if it chooses wrong (and it almost certainly will).

"Donald Trump—Masks Off" (Lorenzo).  The Clarification.  Can't get rid of the Deep State, but at least you know it is there.

Speaking of the Deep State, time for some 'journalists' to run Headachegate up the flagpole again!:  "U.S. Diplomats and Spies Battle Trump Administration Over Suspected Attacks" (Swanson/Wong/Barnes).

To be fair, the Fat Fuck doesn't comprehend the concept of 'hunger', let alone a 'hunger strike':  tweet (Ali Abunimah):
"For fanatical anti-Semitic Zionist Christianist extremist end timers like 
@mikepompeo, Palestinians aren’t even human."

10 held by H for the big guy?

"FBI in possession of Hunter Biden's purported laptop, sources say" (Gibson/Singman ).  10 held by H for the big guy?  It's like organized crime talk.  I think the technical term is 'taste', the percentage given to the Don for allowing the crimes to benefit the underlings.

One good thing about the extreme corruption of the Biden Crime Family is that Biden's ownership by the Chinese means that a lot of the useless saber rattling by Trump and the Fat Fuck will be replaced by silence, which would be an improvement, even if for the wrong, corrupt, reasons.

"Was Bill Barr Paid by the Establishment to Protect Hillary, Obama, Comey, Brennan, and a Passel of Obama Regime DOJ, FBI, and CIA Officials from Russiagate Indictments?" (Roberts).  Barr protects Trump's post-Presidential life by sticking to the strict bipartisan Assholian political principle that all official wrongdoing, no matter how bad, is given a pass.  Letting the Soros army run wild was also good politics, and we'll see if it pays dividends for Trump in the election.

"West’s Anti-Chinese Campaign Failing Spectacularly" (Thomas).  "Western Propaganda Over Skripal and Navalny Show Remarkable Similarities" (O'Neill).  You know, until the useful impeachment testimonies, I would never have believed that Western officials could possibly believe the crap they produce, but I found out that they do.  They really are that stupid.  Outside of their bubble, though, nobody else can avoid laughing.  The reason the stories are farcical, besides the obvious explanation of extreme incompetence, is that they want us to obey, not because the stories are plausible, but because they said so.  Believing is obeying.

"Exclusive: Indonesia rejected U.S. request to host spy planes - officials" (Allard).

Gosh, I sure hope she feels better about herself now, as self-esteem is the only thing that counts:  "Former government lawyer ‘ashamed’ of defending UK over Saudi arms sales".  "“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ― Edmund Burke".

Tuesday, October 20, 2020


 "Bolivia election: Evo Morales's leftwing party celebrates stunning comeback" (Phillips/Collyns).  Let's see, they won the election, faced a coup, then were well ahead in the polls, so "a stunning political comeback".  What's stunning is that the election was held at all.  I imagine today there are a lot of nervous calls to Langley seeking exfiltration, where they can be stored, like princelings of Iran, Haftar, or Gülen, for a CIA rainy day.

"Bolivia Has Won. Will Trump Win Too?" (Moon).  I've been thinking about the unsolved disappearance of Maura Murray, and in particular why, at this late date, although it is clear there are those in the know,  there is still no explanation why she was driving a faulty car in New Hampshire on a winter evening (one theory is that she was fleeing an abusive relationship on a quasi-official, but off-the-books, underground railway to Canada or Mexico for women in danger from partners who could, and would, find them, a theory which would explain why the truth is hidden, as such a program is both highly illegal but worth protecting).  Not having a 'theory of the crime' means the crime can never be solved.  With American politics, all I see are country wide polling results, with most polls being obviously defective (not accounting for 'shy' Trump voters, using land lines which are known to skew results, and even polling predominantly self-described Democrats).  Yet everybody knows that this election will be a repeat of the last, with only a few key states determining the issue (again, the states where Trump is working hard like the carnival barker he is, with neither Clinton/Biden, nor their respective campaign workers, ever to be seen), and that issue is never directly addressed.  The 'theory of the crime' is nowhere to be found. It is as if the (((media))) is trying to mislead everybody to push poll Biden to victory.

"The Muslim Zionists" (Salaita).  The universal language of politics is shekels.  See also:  "The White House is Wrapping Sudan around its Little Finger" (Kulikov).

"Internet Resources Become Weaponized" (Giraldi).  In case it is still (((unclear))):  "Jewish Organization Admits to Role Censoring Donald Trump and Conservatives On Facebook and Twitter; Promises More" (Striker).  You can say all you want that Trump as 'peace President' is phony, but it is crystal clear that the sole motivation of the never-Trumpers is a relative absence of Wars For The Jews.  Full stop.  See:  "Escobar: There Won't Be An Iranian 'October Surprise'".  It is off-brand for Trump, and brand is everything for him, particularly in an election campaign.  The interregnum?  If Trump loses, can the Khazars buy a War For The Jews from Trump?  Shekels and promising to call off the attack dogs like Shifty and Pants Shitter?  It's possible - never discount the power of shekels - but I think Trump is in no more danger of Dem retaliation that the crooks Trump promises to lock up.  The unwritten first law of Assholian politics is that the worst criminals are never punished, and it is bipartisan.

"Streisand Effect: Twitter Ban On Biden Laptop Scandal Nearly Doubled Visibility According To MIT" (Durden).  Is 'Jack' a secret Trump fan? [more New Blogger crap - I had to fix this link, but the link editor had to be clicked below the bottom of the displayed page, and it couldn't be scrolled, something I was able to deal with by reducing the size of the text overall, but still . . . ]

The most polite description of 'influence peddling' you will ever see:  "Can Hunter Biden Be Both Right and Wrong, Both Innocent and Guilty? Yes He Can." (Neuburger).  Preemptive nothing to see here, classic Wikipedia crap:  "DEBUNKED! Wikipedia Editors Back Bidens, Stifle Dissent" (Durden).

Zoom jerk

"New Yorker Suspends Jeffrey Toobin for Masturbating on Zoom Call" (Wagner) (Sailer - I never realized Gessen was a dead ringer for Groucho Marx).  To be fair, jerking off is the Stanislavski method of playing the Supreme Court.  He was just getting in character.  He has been an absolute pox on American 'journalism' since the OJ trial, and I'd be glad to see him go, but he is on the SJW side of history, so they'll find an excuse for him.

Whenever leftists suggest that corporations might hold duties to those other than shareholders, they are immediately told that any such thinking would be a serious breach of the fiduciary duty of directors and officers.  In fact, shareholders could sue directors and officers for paying attention to the interests of anybody other than shareholders.  So . . . if the share price of Twitter or Facebook should drop by any amount, wouldn't there be an excellent chance for litigation against the officers and directors of these companies for ignoring the rights of shareholders in taking a partisan political stance on the New York Post stories on the Biden Crime Family?  There would be hell to pay if, say, GM announced it was the company that only sold cars to Democrats.  Why aren't Twitter and Facebook punished in the courts for taking a gratuitous partisan political position?

Should Have Been Killed

"US official went to Syria seeking Americans’ release: Report" (and it's Kash Patel, the guy who was largely responsible for sinking Russiagate and the impeachment!).  "US, Syria Enter Secret Negotiations, a Deeply Censored Story".   "Bashar al-Assad "Should Have Been Killed" Long Ago: Israeli Military Intel Chief".

"US Rejects Putin’s Offer to Renew New START for One Year" (DeCamp).  I assume Trump would if the MIC let him, as this is the kind of thing that is very good for his brand.

"Unelected Bolivian govt detains, doxxes, threatens international observers on eve of election" (Norton).  Tweet (Ollie Vargas):

"This is Bolivia. Quite extraordinary, considering that an unelected regime tried to exterminate this party, through massacres, persecution, racism, hunger. It didn't work. These people are facing down the coup and the most powerful country in the world, the US, all at once."

"China grows nearly 5%; Will historians look back at Trump’s disastrous Pandemic Response as the Moment Beijing Overtook the US?" (Cole).  Looking after the outrageous profits of (((hedge fund manager billionaires))) rather than the interests of the entire country is a classic corruption move with classic consequences.  Were it not for the sheer abject tragedy of the alternative, Trump should be voted out just for that mistake.

On various regime changes, and casting justified shade at Armenia:  "Before the Elections" (Shamir).

It is all one story

"FBI 'Has To Come Clean' About Corruption Evidence, Potential Child Porn On Hunter Biden's Laptop: Sen. Johnson":

"Host Maria Bartiromo brought up a salient point - that the FBI was allegedly in possession of Hunter Biden's laptop which contains apparent evidence of pay-for-play corruption in Ukraine, at the same time Congressional Democrats were impeaching President Trump for asking Ukraine to investigate exactly that."

"Steve Bannon Behind 'Roll-Out Plan' For Hunter Biden Emails, Says 'Multiple Stories From Multiple Media Sources' About To Hit" (Trump would be wise to get Bannon away from this story, as his presence just provides talking points for the Dems):
"Mr. Bannon: Joe Biden is a liar, a fraud, and compromised by Chinese cash. In short, he is a national security crisis. The hard drive combines emails and text messages that show a massive involvement with companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Also, there are 25,000 images that show a drug-addled, depraved lifestyle — one that decent hardworking Americans will not want near the White House.

Revolver: The FBI has been holding onto the hard drive for almost a year? Any sense of why? Was there any indication that they were seriously interested in a criminal case, assuming that there is, in fact, illegal material on there? If not, why would the FBI simply hold onto information like that?

Mr. Bannon: The President must confront the director of the FBI on why the information housed on this hard drive was not moved on immediately. If the content of the hard drive had been released when received in November 2019, there would have been no impeachment of Trump, and Bernie Sanders would be the Democratic Party nominee. This confrontation should take place this weekend in the Oval Office. If Wray doesn’t have a bulletproof reason he should be fired in the room."
"Does This Explain Why Facebook Was So Quick To Suppress Hunter Biden Revelations?" (Widburg).  The word for this is 'corruption'.

What is it? - irony? - that Russiagate was all about Trump posing national security risks due to his having been compromised, financially and by sexual blackmail, by Putin, when we now receive platinum evidence that it is Biden that poses the national security risk due to his being hopelessly compromised by Chinese money, and possibly by sexual blackmail against his pedoson.

Delete the tweets

 "The UAE-Israeli Connection: Who Benefits from All This?" (Mikhin).  Watching the Iron Dome spectacularly fail, again, while Iran reduces the UAE into a pile of rubble, would be very entertaining.

"‘It’s been so, so surreal.’ Critics of Sweden’s lax pandemic policies face fierce backlash" (Vogel) (note that they have quietly come around without admitting they did anything wrong).  "COVID-19: The Case Against Herd Immunity" (Ferrada de Noli).

"Gov. Andrew Cuomo plays a dangerous double game with New York Jews" (Braunstein).  The problem, goy, is entirely 'anti-Semitism', and not, of course, complete lack of compliance with the law by scofflaw Khazars.

The FBI is no more and no less than a PR division of the Democrats, and have consistently behaved accordingly:  "Senate Homeland Committee Demands Answers From FBI Over Hunter Biden Laptop" (Durden) (link:  "" - it seems that the genius programmers at Google finally lifted the ZeroHedge censorship).  Had the repair guy not contacted Giuliani, nobody would have ever heard about the laptops.

"Before the Bidens ‘Did’ Ukraine, There Was Iraq – and Serbia" (Jatras).  What Assholes have to look forward to.

Biden has (mostly) kept his vile intentions quiet (no reason to scare off voters if he doesn't have to):  tweet (tim anderson):

"More aggressive than you: #Biden again attacks Trump from the right, accuses him of helping #Venezuela and #Maduro through deportations."

Tweet (Mark Ames):

"The most USian-Left response to Hunter Biden siphoning millions out of Europe’s poorest country while his Ukraine Viceroy daddy imposes devastating austerity programs backed by neofascist muscle—policies continued by Trump— is, “we must feel Hunter Biden’s pain”."

Hack and leak

 "Facebook and Twitter's Intervention Highlights Dangerous New Double Standard" (Taibbi):

"The optics of a former Democratic Party spokesman suddenly donning a Facebook official’s hat to announce a ban of a story damaging to Democrats couldn’t be worse. Moreover, the Orwellian construct described in papers like the Times suggests that for tech executives, pundits, and Democratic Party officials alike, the lines between fake news and bad news, between actual misinformation and information that is merely politically adverse, have been blurred. It’s no longer clear that some of these people see a meaningful distinction between the two ideas. 

The public can’t help but see this. While papers like the Times denounce the true Podesta emails as “misinformation,” and Facebook says the New York Post story must be kept out of sight until verified, the standard for, say, the Steele dossier was and is opposite. In that case, we were told “raw intelligence” should be published so that “Americans can make up their own minds” about information that, while “salacious and unverified,” may still be freely read on Twitter and Facebook, reported on in the New York Times and Washington Post, and talked about on NBC, so long as it has not been completely “disproven.”

As Erik Wemple of the Washington Post points out, even that last point is no longer true, but the Steele dossier and plenty of other products of what Axios calls “hack and leak” journalism continue to be embraced and freely distributed. The obvious double-standard guarantees that the tech platforms will henceforth be viewed by a huge portion of the population as political censors instead of standards enforcers, and moreover that mainstream press pronouncements about such controversies will be deemed automatically untrustworthy by that same population."

"Yes, The Hunter Biden Emails Are Authentic by Larry C Johnson".  More details on the mechanics of the story.  Crackheads like Hunter tend to be sloppy with their lives, and with their stuff.

Remember Mohamed Atta was working for the government, training wannabe jihadists in New Jersey around 2000, the time he was supposed to be a student in Hamburg?  We've seen a long list of young Muslim men entrapped through confidential informants working for the FBI.  Well, the Assholian government is still up to the same tricks, this time with the gullible being wannabe revolutionaries, and it is not at all clear whether they are 'Nazis' or 'Antifa' (though, of course, to fit The Narrative, they will always be called 'Nazis').  "Secret recordings of neo-Nazi terror network The Base 'show the group actively recruiting US military members as they prepare for the "impending collapse" of US society and the coming race war'" (Fruen).  I'd be shocked if Rinaldo Nazzaro wasn't on some government payroll.

"How Yelp Scams Photographers (and Other Business Owners)" (St Louis) (original link:  "").

"Japan to release Fukushima contaminated water into sea: Reports".

Totally false

 "Jonathan Turley: Hunter Biden's laptop and the Facebook, Twitter censorship scandal – watch these 3 things".  If you ignore the efforts of Dems desperately trying to change the subject to Russia (again!), there's considerable reason to take the contents of the laptop at face value.  The Dems must be having nightmare flashbacks - campaign way, way ahead, Trump seemingly floundering, and suddenly what should appear, with no warning, a bunch of communications which demonstrate Biden Crime Family criminality, lying about criminality, and influence peddling?  Not again!  No effort at dealing with the substance, just spout crazed rumors about Putin (as Turley notes, an innocent Biden family would be making all sorts of other objections, and hasn't said any of the obvious things the innocent might say).  The single advantage Biden has is the fact he, very much unlike Killary, doesn't have a reputation as an absolute crook.  The Clinton emails just confirmed what everybody already knew, while the Biden material might be explained as a product of a very troubled son.

Given the fact this material had been sitting around for months, and went through Giuliani, I think we can confirm that this, and not an attack on Iran or some other atrocity out of line with Trump's isolationist brand, is the October Surprise.

A bagman op

This thing has been creeping around in the far-right undergrowth, and it is good to see somebody call it out for what it is:  "The Great Barrington Declaration: A manifesto of death" (Damon).

"Facebook and Twitter Cross a Line Far More Dangerous Than What They Censor" (Greenwald).  The fact that the failson - a cliché in Assholian Presidential politics is some feckless semi-criminal relative of a candidate or President, often with substance abuse issues - peddles influence (in between the whores and crack), the influence being his corrupt father, isn't anywhere near as interesting - in fact, a reasonable person could accept the whole story and still reasonably vote for Biden - as the efforts by the social media to cover up for their preferred candidate.  They have far too much power, and obviously are now so full of themselves they can't even muster the slightest self-restraint in exercising it.  Zero fear of any regulation.

"American Coup d’états" (Monaco).  "Fact-Checking the Liars: the Record of U.S. Imperial War and Plunder" (Mackler).  "The U.S. Did Not Defeat Fascism in WWII, It Discretely Internationalized It" (Rockhill).

"POTUS Punk vs. Dem Dementia" (Escobar):

"Now let’s Follow The Money. 

That’s a slam dunk. For Republicans, the top bagman is casino schemer Sheldon Adelson – who literally bought Congress for a paltry $150 million. For Democrats, it’s Haim Saban – who owns his own think tank and is Hillary’s go-to moneyman. The Dem dementia is essentially a bagman op.

To make it even more digestible, both Adelson and Saban are rabid Israeli-firsters. A dissident Beltway intel op cuts all corners: “The Mafia front man Sheldon Adelson financed Trump for Israeli insurance even though Israel was for Hillary.”"

I wonder if Khazars hate Armenians so much - the (((Dönmeh))) did the Armenian genocide in Turkey, and now this - because the Armenians are living in part of what should be the real Khazar homeland:  "Jews Are Enabling Genocide Against Armenian Christians In Nagorno-Karabakh" (Striker):

"The Azeri military’s war crimes against Armenian Christians have not attracted much in the way of bad publicity in the English-speaking world, likely due to the country’s close ties to international Jewry.

Last week, Azerbaijan deliberately bombed the centuries old Ghazanchetsots Cathedral. When Russian journalists arrived to report on the damage, the Azeri military launched another barrage of shells, critically injuring one. Scores of civilians have also been targeted and killed on the Armenian side.

Turkey is singled out as being the primary regional instigator in this Caucus war, but Israel’s support for Azerbaijan is arguably more substantial. The state of Israel provides 60% of Azerbaijan’s weapons, and its high tech arms, such as IAI Harops (“suicide drones”), have given the Azeri military a unique strategic edge that the Armenians have no counter to.

International investigators have also uncovered evidence that the Azeri’s are using Israeli M095 DPICM cluster munitions — which are illegal under international law — to kill and maim non-combatants.

An Israeli court recently struck down a lawsuit supported by the country’s small Armenian community, complaining that weapons manufactured in Israel were implicated in crimes against humanity. Lawyers provided evidence showing that Israel was secretly airlifting weapons to Azerbaijan just days before the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict erupted, a shocking revelation left out of most Western reporting on the subject. The Zionist regime has vowed to continue selling billions of dollars in arms to the Azerbaijan government.

The Trump administration has shown more interest in supporting Azerbaijan than any government before it, largely as a passive act of harassment against Iran. So far, $100 million dollars in aid have been dispatched to the country, but Washington has not been deeply involved in the current unfolding conflict.

The Azeri government’s lobbying tactic in the run up to this war has been to directly curry favor with American Jewry. In March, it became the first Muslim country to give a speech at AIPAC.

Last July, Armenians in Los Angeles protesting against Azerbaijan’s aggression were selectively charged with “hate crimes.” Hate crimes charges in America are generally reserved for politically disfavored ethnic groups who clash with favored ones.

Last week, Azeri ambassador Elin Suleymanov met with the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) in an attempt to get Washington to increase support for his country’s war effort."

"Bolivian coup officials and supporters stalk international election observers, launch violent incitement campaign" (Norton).  The coup plotters are getting ready for when they lose, or, alternatively, for when they steal the election and need to explain away the reports of international monitors.

All faked

Here's another Clintonista attempt at sarcastic deflection from the laptop with its scary emails and prostitutes and crack.  Tweet thread (Dan Sloan).  Of course, they want to claim the stories from the computer guy and Giuliani are an unlikely stories, while simultaneously telling us that the real story is that somehow that rascal Putin got wind of the laptop and planted damaging emails on it (intending to help the reelection of his slave, Trump), all of which emails seem (mostly) to track what we know of the facts involving Joe and Hunter.

The computer guy naturally doesn't want to be sethriched.

"WaPo Exposes Rudy Giuliani as a Russian Agent" (Anglin).

"‘Russian hacking’! Media reverts to form in responding to Hunter Biden/Burisma report" (Malic):

"Actual journalists would have at least asked why these Hunter Biden emails are being released now, if “Russia” supposedly got them in January – at the peak of the Democrats’ attempt to impeach President Trump. After all, their principal argument was that Trump was “soliciting foreign interference” in the US election (!) by telling Ukraine it should investigate Hunter Biden’s dealings with Burisma and the circumstances of the firing of a state prosecutor reportedly looking into it. Mind you, this is with Joe Biden on the record boasting about getting the prosecutor fired. 

What was the FBI doing for the past year, just sitting on evidence that a Burisma official literally asked Hunter to “use your influence to convey a message/signal” to protect the company from the government in Kiev? It sure seemed pertinent to the whole impeachment business. 

You won’t hear these questions asked by the mainstream US media, though. They are literally insisting it’s all false, there’s nothing to see here, move along. Russia!"

"Shhh! Don’t Talk About Hunter Biden" (Dreher).  "The New York Post Gets the AmRen Treatment" (Hood).

The bigger issue:  "DC’s Atlantic Council raked in funding from Hunter Biden’s corruption-stained employer while courting his VP father" (Blumenthal).

Another reason to like Trump:  tweet (Jake Tapper):

"The president was asked last night by @SavannahGuthrie about his sharing of the insane lie that the heroes of SEAL Team Six didn’t actually kill OBL, that it was all faked — empirically a smear of brave servicemembers and a deranged claim."

"Former French President Sarkozy charged over Libyan financing".

This is a huge solve of a notorious case, including a wrongfully railroaded man who was only released due to DNA, in Canada:  "How DNA and a genealogy website helped lead to the killer of Christine Jessop" (Gillis/Hasham).

Oops!...I Did It Again

 After Jack's apology for censorship - described as a communications problem! - he immediately turns around and does it again!:  "Senate Judiciary To Subpoena Jack Dorsey After Twitter Suspends Trump Campaign, House GOP Accounts Over Biden Scandal" (Durden) (ZeroHedge link, for if you are going to bury a link for partisan political purposes, this is the one Google would pick to bury:  "").  This is a guy who knows for certain there will be no consequences.  The good part is that something like the Streisand Effect means that this issue, which would have been buried by the (((media))), now has some life.

""I Wanted It Out Of My Shop" - Computer Repairman Shares Why He Gave Laptop With Hunter Biden's Emails To The FBI" (Durden) (ZeroHedge link:  It looks very much like the FBI would have buried this, too, part of the big Comey cover-up of Barry-Killary-Biden wrongdoing, had not the shop owner reached out to Giuliani's attorney.

"Running Out of Time… October Surprise Redux?" (Giraldi).  The problem for the Republicans is that the Barry Coup is enough of an 'inside the beltway' story that the (((media))) can bury it on the basis that nobody would care.

"Media Again Falsely Claim That Joe Biden's Intervention In Ukraine Was Innocent" (Moon).

The pathetic attempts at sarcasm by the Clintonistas, with the inevitable 'foreign interference' conspiracy theory, evidence a real concern about this laptop, which is starting to look like the Rosetta Stone to the whole Biden Crime Family:  "Details Emerge On Giuliani-Post Story, And The Obvious Frame-up Looks Clearly Like Russian Propaganda" (Sumner).

Added: tweet (Matt Taibbi):

"So a laptop with video of the candidate’s son smoking crack while having sex was left for repairs, but after that someone uploaded fake correspondence on the device?"

Foreign Intelligence Operation

 "A New Book Warns of the Imminent Danger of a Kamala Harris Presidency" (Parry).  Leaving aside the outrage of taking a gratuitous shot at Heidegger, one of the most important thinkers in world history, we get (this is getting back to a. nolen territory):  Marcuse+CIA -> 'critical theory' -> New Left -> movement of socialism from shop floor to academia, where it dies in a deadly explosion of identity politics -> Clintonista zombie anti-progressive monster in President-To-Be Harris.

"As it happens, the relationship between the CIA and the New Left’s intellectuals goes back to its origins. One of the most prominent idealogues of the Frankfurt School, Herbert Marcuse — often referred to as the “father of the New Left” — spent almost a full decade during the 1940s working for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the precursor to the CIA, and as an anti-Soviet intelligence analyst in the U.S. State Department. This was not just during wartime but continued well after WWII was over in West Germany until 1951 when Marcuse immigrated to the United States to work as a professor at universities on the east coast, the same year that the CCF was founded. However, one interesting fact that Maupin overlooks is that while Kamala Harris was growing up in Oakland in the 1960s, Marcuse relocated his teaching career out to the west coast at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), where his work continued to be cited as an influence by the middle-class student activists and radicals of the counterculture as the left drifted further away from the socialist countries and the working class."

This is probably the single most outrageous incident to date of pure partisan political interference by social media companies:  "Twitter BLOCKS sharing links to NYPost’s Hunter Biden emails story, invoking ‘HACKED MATERIALS’ policy for first time ever" and "Twitter Blocks NEW YORK POST Scoop On Hunter Biden" (Sailer):
"Isn’t visiting websites directly how the Internet used to work back in say, 2000? There were a lot of different websites and you clicked on the one you wanted to go to.

Why was it a good idea to set up a handful of zillionaire monopolists as the intermediaries between individuals and web content they want to access?"
Original story:  "Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad" (Morris/Fonrouge) (original link:  "").  This outrageous partisan political interference has given the story wings, leading to more juicy details:  "Latest Cache Of Emails Detail How Hunter Biden Earned Millions In China "For Introductions"" (ZeroHedge link, for the usual Blogger reasons: "")

Amongst other things, Biden straight up lied about the introduction in question not having happened.

"Understanding Hunter Biden's Crazy Email Laptop Scandal In 30 Seconds" (Seaman).  I knew this was going to be good when the Dems instantly came up with a big list of possible problems with the original story, to be used as talking points by the usual liars.  Even by Clintonista standards, this is remarkably foul (note the reincarnation of Russiagate!!!):  "Foreign Operatives and Rudy Try to Bail out Trump Again" (Marshall):
"As I noted above this is obviously yet another foreign intelligence operation in which Giuliani has involved himself. The only question is whether it is of the 2016 variety – a caper originated by a foreign state like Russia or whether it’s someone from one of the Gulf Emirates doing the work at Trump and Giuliani’s bidding."
