Died of thirst

""His Womanizing Was Well Known": Flood-'Gates' Open As Biographer Details Microsoft Founder's Salacious Past" (Durden).  This is how I like to think of him:

"a hard-partying womanizer who recruited local strippers to attend naked pool parties"

The politicians have, in their infinite wisdom, selected this stellar character as the unelected leader of the world.

Tweets from TrueAnon Pod on the good Israel of Opposite-Land.  Tweet (Séamus Malekafzali):
"Another entry into how morally destitute Reuters is. Completely leaving out of the headline that the car can be seen on video backing up and then running over a Palestinian on a curb."
"Israeli Repression and Land Grabs, and the Palestinian Protests in Jerusalem" (Rahman).

Tweet (Stephen Semler):
"Biden’s spending plan for 2022 would give $1.3 billion more to the Israeli military than to international climate programs: 
Tweet (Dan Cohen):
"These are faces of the Palestinians murdered by Israel on May 10, 2021. 
They're called "human shields" and "terrorists" in US media, but their only crime is being born the wrong ethnicity. 
Via @MintPressNews"
Truly shocking to read something like this in the (((media))): "The latest Israel-Palestine crisis isn't a 'real estate dispute.' It's ethnic cleansing." (Brown).

"Biden State Dept says Israel has right to self-defense, won’t say whether Palestine does" (Arria).  Shlomo has arrived with lots of bags.

"State Department Walks Back Criticism of Israel" (Kredo).

"Leading Russiagate conspiracy theorist appointed to key national security role at Biden’s Department of Justice".

"Patients died from neglect, not COVID-19, in Ontario LTC homes, military report finds: ‘All they needed was water and a wipe down’" (Howlett).  Died of thirst.  Ford didn't want to bother his good buddies who own these hell holes with commie shit like regulation.  Will we see anybody in jail for manslaughter?

"Iran Publicly Accuses US Government of Orchestrating Bombing That Targeted and Killed Scores of Afghan Children" (Striker).  Would the neocons stoop so low as to create chaos so that the Assholes would have to, reluctantly, stay?

"Just Whose Coast Is the Coast Guard Guarding?" (Carpenter).

Tweet (Dan Cohen) (looks like an attempted extortion scheme - pay us or we'll publish - which didn't get any takers):
"Looks like the Bellingcat hacks started a project documenting Colombian police violence, then quickly scrubbed it from their website. Wouldn't want to upset their CIA cutout benefactors. https://bellingcat.com/uncategorized/"
"Bernie Sanders: Progressivism Can’t Endure As The Party of the PMC" ('Hunter Wallace'):
"The Democratic Party is two parties.

It is an unstable upstairs and downstairs coalition.

It is the party of the Democratic Independent Liberal Elites (DILEs) or the affluent, college-educated PMCs (and their downwardly mobile woke brats) who are concentrated in large metro areas and college towns and who have cosmopolitan, modernist and antiracist values.

It is also the party of the Democrat Leaning Working Class (DLWCs) or the multiracial working class. The reason that the Democrats went insane over the Trump presidency is because he took such a large bite out of the DLWC vote and beat Hillary Clinton by winning nearly 25% of those voters. This is what enabled Trump to do magical things for a Republican in 2016 like carry the Rust Belt.

The apocalyptic scenario for Democrats is a Republican candidate who is able to win a much larger share of the DLWC vote than Trump and who splits the party down the middle dividing the PMCs from the working class. This is becoming increasingly plausible as the Democrats are transforming into the party of Nicolle Wallace, Brian Stelter and Pete Buttigieg. As the Democrats evolve into what used to be the old Republican Party, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and John McCain are their new heroes. 
The reason that this hasn’t already happened is largely due to the Republicans themselves. The Republican Congress pushed Paul Ryan’s unpopular agenda and shelved the MAGA agenda. Donald Trump himself had little interest in doing anything beyond tweeting. Republican judges deliver victories for the Left like on gay marriage. The GOP has relentlessly fought against us and have refused to champion popular grievances instead preferring to fight to the death over things like the $600 stimulus check. Trump had Jared Kushner in charge of his 2020 campaign. The Tories also support the NHS and there is no equivalent of the SNP in the United States. The Republicans are accustomed to groveling and submitting to the media even when something like 94% of their own voters hate the media. The Republicans were so drunk on free market ideology that they stood idly by while they were wiped out and censored on social media. They have preferred to champion and defend political correctness which is hated by their voters. Frank Luntz tells them what will work. The contempt here for the GOP is so strong that most of our readers have convinced themselves that voting is futile even though most people share the same views on the key issues. Voting for the GOP only empowers them to do things no one wants or cares about."
