Difficult to explain

"COMMENTARY: Here's What You Need to Know About Israel's Upcoming Election" (Feldstein) (my emphasis in red):

"Israel has no early voting or absentee ballots. As most Israeli adults have been vaccinated, on election day, Israelis will line up to vote in person, in a socially distanced way, and place a paper ballot inside an envelope, and place that envelope inside a second. Shortly after the polls close there will be a good sense of the overall shape of the Knesset, but actual numbers won’t be sure until a day or two later when the ballots of soldiers voting on their bases are counted, and the final numbers and percentages are determined." 

"Purdue Pharma Conducted Massive Probe Of The Sacklers, But The Findings Are Secret" (Mann):
"Critics, meanwhile, point to one final twist in Purdue Pharma's decision to keep the findings of its Sackler probe secret.

In this week's bankruptcy filing, the company confirmed it will create a "public document repository" expected to reveal far more detail about the practices of the drug-maker and its owners.

But Purdue Pharma said that trove of internal documents will only be released after a final bankruptcy plan sheltering the Sacklers from future lawsuits has "become final and non-appealable."

In a statement this week on Twitter, Massachusetts AG Healey wrote, "Purdue says it will show the evidence to the public after the Sacklers get immunity. Huh.""
"Gov. Kristi Noem won't sign transgender sports bill" (Matzen/Sneve) (my emphasis in red):
"Gov. Kristi Noem is OK with a ban on trans girls playing girls' sports in high school, but doesn't want it extended to college athletics. 

The first-term Republican governor said Friday in a news release that she is exercising her special power to make style and form changes to House Bill 1217, which as originally written would have required athletes participating in sanctioned sports in South Dakota to compete in events that align with their sex determined at birth.

Sponsored by Sioux Falls-area lawmakers Rep. Rhonda Milstead and Sen. Maggie Sutton, the measure would have applied to all K-12 and collegiate athletic events held in South Dakota. 

But amid concerns over economic backlash and the potential for South Dakota to lose sanctioned sporting events like NCAA tournaments, Noem is sending the bill back to the Legislature."
Noem is a red-meat Republican, recently famous for her anti-mask position, but even she wasn't able to withstand the economic power of the tranny lobby, which is, on Anglin's deft analysis, actually the pedo lobby (if a six year old boy can give consent to having his dick cut off, he can certainly consent to having sex with a man, qed).  On a yacht somewhere, Geffen is laughing at us.

"Criticism of Canadian Policy in Haiti Growing" (Engler).  Every single Canadian foreign policy decision under the rule of The Nazi has been an embarrassment and a complete fucking disaster.  It is so bad, even highly questionable characters like Lewis and Klein are complaining.

"Evgeny Lebedev, Ghislaine Maxwell, Boris Johnson, Rothschild, Jeffrey Epstein" (Aangirfan).

On his cancellation:  "The New Normal “Reality” Police" (Hopkins) (also in Unz):
". . .  that is how reality-policing works. It’s a bullying operation, basically. The entire “cancel culture” phenomenon is. “Cancel culture” is a silly name for it. We are talking about a global empire imposing total ideological conformity (or, in simpler terms, its version of “reality”) on the entire planet through fear and force. The Nazis referred to this process as Gleichschaltung. 
Global capitalism has reached the stage where it no longer needs to tolerate dissent (any kind of dissent, from any quarter) to maintain the illusion of “freedom and democracy,” because there is no alternative to global capitalism. It is everywhere. There is nowhere to run or hide. When the Reality Police find you, and threaten to “cancel” you, you have two choices … obey or be vaporized. 
If you’re a Palestinian, a Syrian, a Yemeni, the president of an uncooperative African country, or some other type of non-Western person, you might very well be physically vaporized. For Westerners, vaporization is less dramatic and final. You will simply be disappeared from the Internet, fired from your job, socially ostracized, deemed a “dangerous individual,” a “racist,” an “anti-Semite,” a “conspiracy theorist,” a “white supremacist,” a “domestic terrorist,” an “anti-vaxxer,” a “Covid denier.” 
If you’re a member of the independent media, or a prominent activist, or a lawyer, or doctor, or just someone with a big social media platform, and have not seen the “New Normal” light, you will be demonized, demonetized, deplatformed, censored, and subjected to the type of creepy COINTELPRO-type tactics I described above. If you don’t believe me, just ask Robert F. Kennedy, Rainer Fuellmich, Vanessa Beeley, Whitney Webb, James Corbett, Ken Jebsen, Cory Morningstar, The Last American Vagabond, Geopolitics & Empire, The Centre for Research on Globalization, OffGuardian, and countless other people and outlets that have challenged the official “New Normal” narrative."
Big Data has actually created a new literary genre for future historians to analyze, the sad musings of the cancelled on the cancellation.

"U.S. Aggressiveness Follow Up" (Moon).  Blinken walked into a door.  Which of the Three Stooges is he? - must be Moe.

Ha!:  "Former Director of National Intelligence Says Upcoming Pentagon Report Will Include 'Difficult To Explain' UFO Sightings" (War News Updates).
