The New Decency

Richard Medhurst tweets on Assholes in Iraq. 

Tweet (Matt Couch):

"BREAKING: Big News! A Federal Judge has given the FBI less than 3 months to release all information they have on Seth Rich to our attorneys. 

This is a MASSIVE win for Justice, and we are grateful to this federal judge for having the courage to do the right thing!"

I can't see it happening, unless they get a big pile of redactions.

"Biden Pick For Pentagon Mideast Desk Bragged That US "Owns" Syrian Oil Territory" (Durden).  A Khazar (I assume) from WINEP - what could possibly go wrong?

"Biden Meets Iran: The Upcoming Diplomatic Battle" (Snider).  You can't possibly negotiate with Assholes without a bargaining chip, but the Assholes insist you have to give up the bargaining chip first.

"Israel Cracks the Whip" (Giraldi):
"Anyone who persists in believing that the United States is not Israel’s poodle should pay attention to the comedy that is playing out right now."
"The Biden Government Running True to Form" (O'Neill).  "Biden to Retain Trump Envoy Who Tried to Guaido Himself into Power in Afghanistan" (Rubinstein).

"Dershowitz nominates Kushner, aide for Nobel Peace Prize" (Mastrangelo).

"State Department Spokesperson flustered by question on Palestinians’ right to defend themselves".

Of course, the Democrats have passed own-goal legislation which scuttles Bernie's attempts to use reconciliation to sneak around the filibuster, which Manchin won't let go of, presumably for cases just like this.  The Dems are a political party that spends all time and energy in ensuring it never has to govern.

"‘How it started vs. how it’s going’ has become the all-purpose meme of 2020" (Berkowitz).  "Alexei Navalny ally urges Biden to sanction Putin associates" (Arkhipov).  Tweet (Johanna Ross) (also):
"This video of Navalny ally Vladimir Ashurkov meeting with a British diplomat is something else. 
The guy is effectively trying to sell his country, saying that if Britain is prepared to finance them, it will be generously rewarded by billions later on..."
Totally amazing lack of tradecraft in selling your candidate in public like this, as if the Russians wouldn't be watching.  Also, another example of the ubiquity of Britain in the PR jobs for the Empire.

"Kremlin Tells US 'Back Off' Navalny Case As Viral 'Putin Palace' Story Deflated" (Durden).  Deepfake palace.  "Navalny Scam Sells Empty Concrete Shell As 'Putin's Luxurious Palace'" (Moon).

Tweet (Max Blumenthal):
"This is a tactic the CIA tried unsuccessfully in Venezuela. 

Incidentally, both Leonid Volkov and Navalny were fellows at Yale's Maurice "Hank" Greenberg program.

While overseeing AIG's illicit practices, Greenberg reportedly sponsored CIA activity around the globe."
Soviet-Union-style tweets by Newsweek!:
""Joe Biden critics claim President "lied" about $2,000 stimulus checks 
Correction: This article has been updated with further context regarding Biden's comments in Atlanta. The headline was corrected to remove the word "falsely." The original tweet has been deleted.""
"The Grift: What did Rick Wilson do with the $64,766 he raised for a film he never released?" (Techno Fog).

Tweets by Jake Johnson on ICEBiden and the New Decency:
"Today, @ICEgov removed 102 Haitians on a charter flight from San Antonio, Texas to Port-au-Prince, including 17 children aged 2 and under. In the middle of a pandemic, and in the middle of a political crisis in Haiti. Another #ICEAir flight is scheduled for Thursday.

Statement from the inimitable @GuerlineMJozef and @HaitianBridge. ICE Deports Black Immigrants On First Day of Black History Month:

Tweet (Jeffrey St. Clair):
"So we now know the FBI planned, executed, covered up and gave themselves bonuses for the assassination of Fred Hampton and Mark Clark."
