[Oct 25, 2020] BLM and the Artificial Creamer Party

Oct 25, 2020 | www.amazon.com

Adapted from From Conflict to Crisis- The Danger of U.S. Actions- Jeanne M. Haskin

If we start with perception management, we can propose something patently absurd: the Artificial Creamer Party.

Recognize any familiar tactics in the following campaign strategy?

1) We shall insist on the separation of milk and state, and bar any organization affiliated with milk from being eligible for public subsidies.

2) The rights of dairy farmers to marry, adopt children, and openly serve in the military shall be considered morally objectionable and debated at every opportunity.

3) In the event of an election, the multiple evils of milk shall be used to distract the public from questioning the candidates on anything.

4) Think tanks, foundations, and the political correctness police shall enforce the world's perception of Artificial Creamer as a "bridge to the future," "the salvation of the global village," "the right of the human family," "the key to sustainable development," and "the path to lasting peace."

5) Artificial Creamer will win a Nobel Prize, in light of everything it might do to fill the world with sparkle ponies.

See? Something for everyone. But that's just perception management. Here's the net effect.

The only ones to benefit will be the 0. 13% who are lactose intolerant and the 7% who make megabucks. It won't create U. S. jobs because it will be made in Botswana at the emancipating wage of twenty- three cents a day so 40% of Americans can afford to buy it at Walmart. For the 50% who are destitute, the FDA will declare Artificial Creamer a food group so it can be purchased with WIC and Food Stamps, lest there be a riot against unfairness or Artificial Creamer should fail to cash in on its share of national social programs.

Aren't we ingenious? We might demand that great- grandpa bag groceries on an oxygen tank, thirty years into retirement, to afford his hypertension medicine, and reduce his Social Security if someone gives him a five dollar tip that puts him over the income limit.

But, by God, he can have Creamer -- in any flavor he wants it. This is a land of choice and opportunity, damn it.

Which is all fine and good, but when Artificial Creamer doesn't prove to be everything it said it was, we'll go back to milk (again). And milk will get carried away in an orgy of self- indulgence until we return to Artificial Creamer (once more). Either way, we'll have the satisfaction and euphoria of empowerment.

Or something, anyway.

If you're confused about U. S. principles and who's supposed to benefit, you may not be to blame. We've responded to boom and bust cycles inherent to our development choices and other countries' criticisms with different programs and palliatives over decades of continuity.

But it doesn't take a genius to see that the tyranny of science is fighting to replace the tyranny of royalty- teamed- with- religion we rejected in the eighteenth century. Science is the power that buttresses democracy and capitalism, also in the name of "progress." Not that we won't play the God card when corruption is so glaring that it requires another support system which is conveniently available in the form of religious sanction.

It's a function of self- esteem to seek affirmation of our beliefs and share safety in numbers, but the existence of like- minded people who hold the same fears, hopes, values and disappointments is what makes them predictable targets and therefore most vulnerable to strategic manipulation. It's like handing over the remote control to your decision- making power or wearing a badge on your sleeve

Yes, he is a blathering, bullshitting salesman who built hotels and had a reality TV show. But he didn't start any wars. Bombed the odd airstrip, but that was about it. Who was the last President you could say that about? If he loses, strap in for more wars, possibly even the Big One. And as for China, before we get too awestruck about their economic 'miracle' -- which was remarkable -- note that their money supply (M2) is 2.5 times their GDP. $2.50 for every $1 they need for their economy. Why? To prop up a banking system that is a total Ponzi scheme. To say they have an internal debt problem doesn't begin to cover it. Sure, it allowed them to build super fast trains and cities with no-one in them, but they can't get Chinese people to consume because they are all desperately saving for health care. The public health care is dreadful. It was a miracle, sure, but full of holes (which makes it no less impressive).

The tripartite system of government, devised by our founding "parents" 230+ years ago, has broken down into endless partisan fighting. What's happening in today's politics is more akin to what goes on in the parliamentary system where politicians are always at each others throats. Bipartisanship is not natural to politics.

The presidency is an unwieldy office. It was devised as a democratically elected king with extraordinary powers. It should be broken up into 2 parts. Neither Trump nor Biden measure up to the job.

The USA is run by a 2 party duopoly controlled by special interests. It is a corruption.

We need a new constitution or a revolution.

[Oct 25, 2020] Guess Who Said This

Oct 25, 2020 | www.moonofalabama.org

Guess who said this:

Many of us read The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry when we were children and remember what the main character said: "It's a question of discipline. When you've finished washing and dressing each morning, you must tend your planet. It's very tedious work, but very easy."

I am sure that we must keep doing this "tedious work" if we want to preserve our common home for future generations. We must tend our planet.

The subject of environmental protection has long become a fixture on the global agenda. But I would address it more broadly to discuss also an important task of abandoning the practice of unrestrained and unlimited consumption – overconsumption – in favour of judicious and reasonable sufficiency, when you do not live just for today but also think about tomorrow.

We often say that nature is extremely vulnerable to human activity. Especially when the use of natural resources is growing to a global dimension. However, humanity is not safe from natural disasters, many of which are the result of anthropogenic interference. By the way, some scientists believe that the recent outbreaks of dangerous diseases are a response to this interference. This is why it is so important to develop harmonious relations between Man and Nature.

No cheating please. Guess. Who said the above?

[Oct 24, 2020] Not many expense reports get filed during a civil war

"woke capital." is something really new. Barrett's email could go beyond losing some customers and alienating voters with woke capitalism.
Is this even legal? Isn't expensify making a very large unreported campaign donation with this political advertisement?
Oct 24, 2020 | www.rt.com

The expense report processor Expensify is doing its best to scare its 10 million customers into voting for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, saying anything less is "a vote against democracy" and may lead to "civil war."

David Barrett, CEO of the San Francisco-based company, said in an email blasted out to all of Expensify's customers on Thursday that the US is "facing an unprecedented attack on the foundations of democracy itself." Anyone who votes for President Donald Trump, votes for a third-party candidate, or doesn't cast a ballot is showing that they are "comfortable standing aside and allowing our democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight," he added.

Barrett didn't detail how he thinks Trump is destroying democracy, saying only that he believes the president is trying to suppress votes. As a provider of expense-management software, he said, "Expensify depends on a functioning society and economy.

Ironically, his mass email may jeopardize that position more so than Trump's re-election. In reaction, Newsmax TV host John Cardillo said he's deleting his Expensify account and will never use the software again. The Hill TV host Saagar Enjeti called Barrett's email "completely insane for a $100+ million financial services company and the logical end point of woke capital."

When the US goes to war it is not to win, its to expend expensive weaponry for years as in Afghanistan, Vietnam, Iraq etc.

Every problem [neo]liberal cockroaches claim is a calamity -- discrimination against "transgender women of color", police brutality, systemic racism, COVID-19, the Chinese crackdown on Uyghur militants and the Hong Kong chapter of Antifa, and, of course, "climate change" -- is imaginary, inconsequential, or an actual positive.

[Oct 21, 2020] Another possible Russian provocation against UK: UK Officer In Charge Of Submarine's Nukes boarded staggering drunk while clutching BBQ chicken

This do not have Congressmen Schiff so this version did not got traction. Yet. Because Boris Johnson is generally very close, as his behaviour during Skripals false flag suggests. BTW why they need to inflate "Russian threat" if their own people can be sufficient for the annihilation of the United Kingdom. Still let's wait for the Guardian to tell us about those evil Russians
Oct 21, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

On Monday the UK Ministry of Defence confirmed a hugely embarrassing incident involving a security and operations lapse aboard the British nuclear submarine HMS Vigilant while it temporarily was docked during a mission at a US naval base, specifically Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia.

The officer in charge of overseeing the vessel's nuclear warheads arrived to his shift "staggering drunk" while strangely carrying a bag of barbecue chicken .

The scene immediately sparked concern that the officer, later identified as Lt. Commander Len Louw "was not in a fit state to be in charge of nuclear weapons" as there was something "seriously wrong" according to UK media reports .

... ... ...

The BBC noted that as the weapons engineering officer on the submarine he was "responsible for all weapons and sensors on board." The sub is armed with Trident ballistic missiles and is thus subject to stringent safety and security measures.

And more astounding, according to the Daily Mail , i s that :

The Royal Navy officer had been preparing to start a shift during which they would offload the 16 nuclear missiles - which each weigh 60 tons and have the combined power to kill almost the entire population of the UK.

He reportedly clocked in for his shift after a full night of drinking aboard one of only four submarines that make up the UK's nuclear deterrent.

A week ago the nuclear sub was in the news due to a reported COVID-19 outbreak after crew members were caught breaking port call rules to go to strip clubs and bars.

No doubt American military authorities at Kings Bay naval base will also have serious questions, considering they've just witnessed a significant operations lapse aboard a foreign allied 'top secret' nuclear submarine docked in US waters.

As Freeman says the vetting process is lengthy and those who get through it are precise thoughtful engineering types and committed team players. Aside of that Subs are frequently used to pick up and drop off espionage packages in locations that would create international incidents if caught.

"who they were fighting as 'enemies' were really desperate people pushed to the edge by geopolitical designs and greed acquisitions of Military Industrial Intelligence Complex." Well said. It's never, ever delivered in that package, but instead called "National defence" as Freeman put it. When one determines that the scenario you described is true it blows the national defense theory all to hell... but most never make that jump because the repetitive indoctrination has been soooo effective. Any argument that they must be alert to the possibility that the "nation" could be under attack at any moment loses all it's luster when one realizes that the "national interest" is the cause.

When the narrative is oversold people became cynical. That's the classic "Crying Wolf!" situation, repeated again and again. Excessive deaths stats does not support "COVID-19 as a new Black Death" narrative and that provide some funny situations alike with this shirt.

While infection was dangerous and some suspect that it was result of "gain of function" experiments, the level of response was disproportional to the threat. It's like they stages "Covid-revolution" -- a drastic social change in the society, which affects the way we work, the way we communicate with each and the way we entertain each other in a very profound fashion.

Good news?

I've been wearing a hand painted [by me] , in large bright red letters:" COVID -19 IS A SCAM" , black tee-shirt and matching hand-painted mask, on a more or less daily basis for the last 8 weeks. [The mask I only wear when I have to enter a store with an idiotic "masks are mandatory" policy.]

To date, much to my surprise, 38 people have stopped me and said " I agree" or similar, and only 4 have said "you're wrong" or similar, [one large Australian male halfwit has been the only person threatening me with violence to date – he got really mad- I just gave him the finger and didn't argue- eventually he fucked off.

Of the agreers, perhaps the most notable was a cop who was driving by me on a main road as I waited for a bus. He slowed to a stop and I thought "Oh-oh, what's he going to book me for, no mask?", then he lowered his passenger side window [he wasn't wearing a mask, as required locally], and said "I agree". I said "Huh?". He said "your shirt, I agree with the message". I was shocked and happy at the same time.

My conclusion: there are many out there , [perhaps a majority?]who know that the whole thing is a scam, they just don't let everyone know. It's the silent majority phenomena all over again, perhaps.

[Oct 20, 2020] What if neither Democrats nor Republicans want to win in 2020- No one wants the task of changing the full diaper of US Empire by Helen Buyniski

Oct 20, 2020 | www.rt.com

Helen Buyniski Helen Buyniski

is an American journalist and political commentator at RT. Follow her on Twitter @velocirapture23 18 Oct, 2020 20:23 Watching the many stumbles of both President Donald Trump and Democrat challenger Joe Biden on the campaign trail, one can't help but wonder if either really wants to win. Who'd want the thankless job of cleaning up such a mess?

Whoever wins the 2020 election will be immediately confronted with a full plate of thorny political issues, from impossible national debt to unwinnable (and apparently unendable) foreign wars to artificially-amplified racial strife to metastasizing income inequality to a pandemic that seems determined to put the last nail in the coffin of the US Empire.

No matter his actions, the winner will be blamed for everything that happens on his watch – never mind that these catastrophes have been decades in the making, and a single man stopping them is no more possible than halting an avalanche. In this light, Biden's doddering-old-man persona and Trump's own bewildering missteps make perfect sense. What sane candidate would want to be left holding the bag of crumbling American hegemony?

ALSO ON RT.COM Trump-Biden debate put US democracy on display – we're now little more than the world's laughing stock armed with nukes World War III

" President 46 " may see the long-threatened start of World War III. Thanks to decades of overspending on unwinnable foreign wars against a vague conceptual enemy (" terrorism ") that the mighty wurlitzer of the US propaganda establishment has tied to countries that pose no legitimate threat to the American people, the US is has all but bankrupted itself destroying the Middle East. Despite promising to end the devastating quagmire in 2016, Trump poured ever more resources into the region to exert " maximum pressure " on Iran, the one country left standing of the " seven countries in five years " General Wesley Clark infamously claimed the Bush administration's bloodthirsty neocons had targeted for regime change.

The US spends more on its military than the next seven countries combined – or than 144 other countries put together, according to 2018 figures, but somehow can't keep from arming its enemies too. Perhaps the Pentagon just feels sorry for them and wants to try to ensure a fair fight, but this ill-thought-out policy has equipped groups like Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) to stage false-flag attacks that can then be blamed on governments like Syria or Iran and used to justify the expansion of the never-ending war.

After taking millions of dollars in donations from rabid pro-Israel ideologues like Sheldon Adelson and Paul Singer, Trump basically owes them their war on Iran, as they've made it clear that merely tearing up the JCPOA Iran nuclear deal wasn't enough. But his reluctance to actually follow through beyond round after round of devastating sanctions suggests he doesn't have the stomach for a full-on ground invasion. And Biden worked under Barack Obama, who actually defied the US' Middle Eastern taskmaster to sign that nuclear deal in the first place. Neither really wants that war, but it seems inevitable.

Beating Big Tech READ MORE How is the US election going to be any more legitimate than the 'rigged' Belarus vote? How is the US election going to be any more legitimate than the 'rigged' Belarus vote?

Whoever wins in 2020 will face a reckoning with a technology sector that has become in many ways more powerful than the government itself. Twitter and Facebook have taken to poking the president in the eye by shadowbanning or even removing his posts, rubbing their power in Trump's face, and Google and Amazon have so much dirt on the CIA, FBI, and DHS they could take down the whole system if some crusading president (or prosecutor) crosses them.

And what can Washington do? Government agencies have been using Big Tech as a workaround to skirt the First and Fourth Amendments for years. Constitutionally barred from censoring political speech themselves, they have merely leaned on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to shut down 'conspiracy theories' and other wrongthink and used specially-built backdoors to poke around in users' private lives without the hassle of warrants. Companies that allow these abuses are rewarded with protection of their monopoly status and billions in profits.

Despite an executive order and a lot of bluster threatening Big Tech's Section 230 protections, Trump has not made any real efforts to halt the ongoing censorship by social media of his most vociferous supporters – perhaps realizing these firms are de facto military contractors whose participation in the information war propping up US empire is vital to that empire's continued existence. And while Biden has been treated relatively well by Big Tech thus far, he needs the support of progressive Democrats in order to beat Trump, a group that has been subject to the same censorship as the pro-Trump conservative Right. The likelihood that he will stand up to Big Tech to win over this group is approximately zero.

My Pet Rioters

So much hype has come out of both parties about a stolen election or " coup " that, whatever the result in November, violent street clashes are inevitable. If the winner tells the rioters to sit down and shut up, he'll be seen as capitulating to the system he was supposed to bring to heel. If he cheers them on, he risks losing the support of law enforcement and the military - which could really hasten the collapse of the empire. Neither Trump nor Biden – both old men a decade past traditional retirement age – want that kind of trouble.

ALSO ON RT.COM US politicians are too old and the short-term philosophy this encourages creates a vicious circle that is dooming the country

Record levels of income inequality, plus the economic fallout of suicidally-stupid government responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, have pushed the American public into a state of panicked desperation. More than ever, they're wondering where their next meal will come from and how they'll pay the rent. But thanks to decades of dumbing-down imposed in the guise of public schooling, most lack the vocabulary to articulate these problems or trace them to their proximate causes (namely, a rapacious ruling class that is frantically asset-stripping the nation in the hope of getting out with the cash before the whole thing blows sky-high). Neither party's rhetoric is helping: Biden's " team " blames white supremacy, while Trump's blames crypto-communists.

Whoever gets elected has to follow through on the absurd fantasy they've spun to explain the nation's problems to their followers while unwinding their opponent's reasoning – not an enviable task. The Democrats have so amplified the " threat " of racism that a white person declaring him- or herself " not a racist " is actually deemed racist in itself, and Republicans have bizarrely declared anyone to the left of Ronald Reagan to be " radical leftists " bent on turning the US into Venezuela at a time when most Americans could desperately use some socialist-style government programs to get them back on their feet.

As November 3 looms, both candidates have seemingly been campaigning for their opponent. Biden urged voters who thought they were better off under Trump to reelect him earlier this week), while Trump recently threatened to hold cash-strapped Americans' Covid-19 aid hostage until after the election, only reversing course in the face of public outcry. Whoever is left holding the potentially-explosive hegemonic hot potato, their job as chief rearranger of deck chairs on the rapidly-sinking Titanic of empire is nothing to envy.

The Navalny one was supposed to result in street demonstrations and anger - as far as I see it did not have this affect. Purely because once they mentioned Novichok it was obvious this was a lie.

Novichok became a joke due to the Skripal affair. Which never made sense. And produced so many jokes about the cat, the poison on the door handle, in the buckwheat, people in Hazmat suits- and policemen standing there close to a toxic door.

The west insulted the people's intelligence!!!

Russia has to keep educating and exposing their population to the methods and tactics of the western governments to undermine and attack them.

[Oct 11, 2020] Money laundering time? Covid-19 can survive on CASH for 28 days, study claims

Oct 11, 2020 | www.rt.com

Coronavirus can survive on certain surfaces, including banknotes and mobile phone screens, for nearly a month in cooler climates, new research by Australian scientists suggests.

Covid-19 is able to survive in the open for a significantly longer length of time than was previously thought, according to a study by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) published by the Virology Journal.

"Establishing how long the virus really remains viable on surfaces enables us to more accurately predict and mitigate its spread, and do a better job of protecting our people," said CSIRO's chief executive, Dr. Larry Marshall.

According to the research, the virus has proven to be "extremely stable" and able to thrive on smooth, non-porous surfaces, including paper and plastic banknotes, glass, and steel. Kept at around room temperature – 20C (68F) – Covid-19 stayed alive for a whopping 28 days, which is some 10 days longer than the survival time of the regular flu virus. It should be noted that the experiment was carried out in the dark, as UV light is very effective in killing the coronavirus.

Higher temperatures are significantly less comfortable for the virus. At 40C (104F), it was able to survive for less than 24 hours. At 30C (86F) Covid-19 demonstrated quite mixed results, staying alive for some seven days on stainless steel, plastic notes and glass, but only three days on vinyl and cotton cloth. On paper cash, the contagious virus was still detected after 21 days under those conditions.

'White Supremacist' Narrative Unravels: Whitmer Kidnap Suspect Attended BLM Rally, Another Called Trump A 'Tyrant' by Tyler Durden Sat, 10/10/2020 - 13:40 Twitter Facebook Reddit Email Print

Last week, the FBI says it foiled a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), after the FBI infiltrated an anti-government militia and arrested 13 members who "talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor."

And while the FBI never suggested a race-based ideology in its criminal complaint , the MSM - as well as Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D), took the 'white supremacist' ball and ran with it - hard .

On Friday, however, the Washington Post profiled several members of the group. Notably absent were accusations of 'white supremacy' - perhaps after acknowledging:

" One of alleged plotters , 23-year-old Daniel Harris, attended a Black Lives Matter protest in June , telling the Oakland County Times he was upset about the killing of George Floyd and police violence ."

Another alleged plotter, Brandon Caserta, called President Trump a 'tyrant' - adding ' Trump is not your friend, dude . ' Caserta notably has an anarchist flag behind him in several videos he's recorded.

Again, there isn't a shred of evidence included in the FBI's criminal complaint, nor subsequent reporting, that the men adhered to a white supremacist ideology - a false narrative.

And so, it appears that the FBI busted an anarchist, anti-government militia which plotted violence against elected officials - yet hated both sides of the aisle.

Watched a PBS program tonight. The series is called "Hacking Your Mind", the program I watched tonight was titled "Us vs Them". The program demonstrated the natural tendency of human beings to divide into groups – Us vs Them, and how this human tendency presents a danger to our nation as we fall prey to media influences that make us divide one American group against another American group (Us vs Trump supporters, for example). Us vs Them – divided.

Irony is seen in the program as it sounds the alarm about THEM – the Russians.

Them
THem
THEM!

Here is the PBS video. The segment of interest begins at the 21 minutes mark.
https://www.pbs.org/video/us-vs-them-2t0c0s/

The segment in question discusses an anti-muslim video that had been shared on the internet since 2014.
2014.
Apparently, after the video had been shared thousands upon thousands of time since 2014 a Russian guy also shared this video on Facebook in 2016 and thus provided convenient fodder for Russiagate and this PBS program.

I found the segment beginning at 21 minutes very spooky and troubling and I fear for our nation that PBS is pushing hate. Pay attention to the distressing sound effects that accompany this segment.

Since the largest threat facing the country is white supremacists, according to FBI Director Chris Wray and Homeland Security acting chief Tom Wolf , the Department of Homeland Security has agreed to provide $10 million in grants to organizations which combat 'far-right extremism and white supremacy , ' according to the Wall Street Journal .

The department's Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention program will fund groups such as Life After Hate - founded by reformed white supremacists, which helps people trying to do the same. Another group, the School of Communication at American University, will develop a strategy to combat disinformation 'circulated by the far right online,' and others. Life After Hate was awarded nearly $750,000, while the School of Communication received a $500,000 grant.

One of the largest grants, nearly $750,000, went to Life After Hate, which was founded by former white supremacists and neo-Nazis and works with people trying to leave violent far-right movements. The group was first awarded funding under the Obama-era program but had its grant rescinded soon after Mr. Trump took office. - Wall Street Journal

Life After Hate says they will use the funding for its ExitUSA initiative. Executive director Sammy Rangel says their work "has never been more important," adding "This project follows years of innovation in a space that was largely uncharted."

Another group, the Counter Extremism Project, was awarded $277,755 to collaborate with Parallel Networks, which works with inmates at a San Diego County correctional facility who adhere to both white supremacist of jihadi ideology .

Biden is a piece of work and has a lot of skeletons in the closet. With all the focus on Trump he is now in a bas position no matter what he tried.
Oct 03, 2020 | politics.theonion.com

NEW YORK -- As the Democratic presidential nominee ramped up his in-person efforts to get out the vote, members of the Joe Biden campaign reportedly went door-to-door Tuesday in the JPMorgan Chase headquarters. "Door-knocking is a core part of talking to supporters and getting our message out there, which is why we're spending the day knocking on each and every office door in the entire building," said Biden deputy campaign manager Pete Kavanaugh, adding that hundreds of volunteers were reaching out to every wealth manager, data analyst, and investment associate at the 383 Madison building to seek support and donations for the Democratic nominee before canvassing at the headquarters of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

"We explain to every potential supporter what a great candidate Biden is and how his vision for the country will make their lives better. We hope to get a commitment to vote, of course, but a little donation doesn't hurt either. Polls show that the 12th floor is a tossup so we're definitely focusing on that.

A lot of these people were Hillary [Clinton] supporters in 2016, but we're not taking anything for granted, and the Wall Street demographic represents our key supporters."

At press time, several members of the Biden campaign team expressed disappointment after speaking with several bankers who said they didn't really see a difference between the two candidates.

Are you ready for this week's absurdity? Here's our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Beethoven is a symbol of "exclusion and elitism"

The woke mob is attempting to cancel one of the most famous pieces of music in history – Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

Their aim? To thwart "wealthy white men who embraced Beethoven and turned his symphony into a symbol of their superiority and importance."

Come again?

Prior to Beethoven in the mid 1700s, lower class Europeans would regularly attend symphonies. And they were apparently quite a rowdy bunch– hooting and hollering all throughout the performance, like a modern day rock concert.

Around the time that Beethoven rose to prominence in the early 1800s, however, the lower classes were excluded from attending symphonies because they didn't keep quiet and applaud at the appropriate time.

So today's woke mob believes that by playing or enjoying Beethoven's Fifth, you are glorifying the exclusion of poor people, and by extension, women and minorities.

Oct 02, 2020 | www.rt.com

It appears the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden may have taken precedence over watching porn for a big chunk of Americans, as Pornhub revealed its website took a hit to its traffic during the face-off.

The US's most popular adult website revealed that visits were down 18.5 percent as Biden and Trump traded barbs on stage in Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday. "That represents a significant change in visits during one of Pornhub's peak daily traffic periods," the website said.

Even more interestingly, Pornhub revealed that the biggest declines in traffic were seen in critical swing states – those that could reasonably be won by either the Democratic or Republican presidential candidate by a swing in votes. Traffic to the site from Michigan and Pennsylvania dropped by more than 20 percent, while that from Maine and Wisconsin fell by 20 and 19 percent respectively.

It appears perusers of porn were more interested in the 2020 debate than they were in 2016's, when traffic dropped by only 16 percent during the first head-to-head between Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Seriously, Hope has symptoms, Trump has a positive test, Trump is likely infections right now, and has been for a couple days. Hope for a week maybe, and all running around without msks. This is going to be an interesting real-world experiment in how Corona spreads.

Definitely a bad movie, most unlikely plot line.

Best case scenario here is that the conservative voter base in the U.S. learns a lesson and not just Donald Trump.

I wish the wars in Afghanistan and Yemen (among others) would catch the virus next so more people could "learn a lesson" about those things.

Trump is effectively setting up whites as "terrorists" no matter what side they are on; left or right. By twisting what a white person says, even slightly, authorities and "anti-racists" can label them left wing antifa or right wing "KKK".

Trump is either being used by someone very smart or he knows exactly what he's doing (maybe both). He has a way of making many of his supporters believe he will follow through with his promises, while simultaneously manipulating them to forget how he has done nothing for them.

If someone would put on the Klan outfit in Los Angeles in 2020 would that make him a Klan member to the organization from the deep south even if he had never met or spoken to someone from there?

I think Trump is doing his best against the anti-white racists of the Jewish led left. If the whites were able to get half the amount of people of a typical Trump rally and organized rallies across the US protesting the anti-white racism that now dominates the US the whites might have a chance of taking back some power in the USA. Jews completely dominate the US with the whites being puppets to Jewish power and they exercise this power without hesitation. No American white would dare criticize the Jews even when their disgusting behavior (rapists Weinstein, Epstein, Maxwell) is on full display for the whole world to see.

I would be willing to give good odds that not one of the people who post theses complaints sent Trump an email asking him to pander to whites. I have sent several asking for Trump to explicitly ask white people for our vote. Have any of you? Posting here is preaching to the choir. Send Trump an email asking him to EXPLICITLY ask white people for our vote. I sent an email asking for Trump to ask for the white vote the day before Trump posted the video of the man shouting white power from the golf cart. I don't think it was because of my email but the story that Trump did not know the man said that is a lie for sure.

Send emails to Trump telling him you will not vote for him unless he explicitly asks for the white vote. What can it hurt?

Initially, I believed in Trump's plan to help blacks discover that they could stand on their own two feet, determine their own income (as opposed to welfare), etc. The pre-Covid19 job numbers for black employment were amazing.

At present, though, I don't think Trump has a chance with blacks, platinum plan or not. Take this example.

A black girl gets pregnant at 16, has a baby, starts collecting welfare, gets her own apartment. By the time she's thirty, she has two or three kids, has no skills and no plans to acquire any. She is completely dependent on the welfare state.

How do you think she'll vote? For a president with only four more years in office?

Ninety-some percent of blacks vote democrat for a reason.

Blacks are already pandered to in every possible way.

If they had any honor they wouldn't even want to be treated like permanent wards of the state, but alas, they do not. And Trump is a scummy neocon.

[Oct 01, 2020] University Sets Up 'Support Spaces' For Students Traumatized By Presidential Debate

Oct 01, 2020 | www.prisonplanet.com

September 30, 2020

Ohio's Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), the site of last night's Presidential debate has set up dedicated 'support spaces' for students who have been triggered by the tense exchange.

For any poor snowflake babies who couldn't handle the nasty orange man telling Joe Biden "There's nothing smart about you," CWRU is providing a "confidential safe space" where they can talk and cry about it.

https://api.banned.video/embed/5f7403705eeb4a0c244d47b2

The University says "students can discuss the impact of recent national events, including the presidential debate and upcoming election."

There are eight "presidential debate support spaces" available for students to attend, according to the university which asks that everybody use "respectful dialogue."

The spaces will remain active from Monday through to next Friday, for 'virtual counselling sessions'.

The university announced that the "Support Space is not a substitute for psychotherapy and does not constitute mental health treatment."

The spaces are a throwback to 2016 when education centers offered counseling after Trump won the election.

As Campus Reform notes, the University of Massachusetts-Boston, sponsored a "Coping and Balance" workshop in which students were able to interact with "Doggo, the therapy dog."

Imagine the total meltdown that will occur if Trump wins a second term.

The Covid rules already have destroyed huge amounts of food by limiting harvesting (see Ice Age Farmer) and destroying the existing food supply chains. The result will be food scarcity for the poorer nations and high food prices for the richer ones. Better stock up while there's still time and before hoarding laws are initiated.

Thanks again for another interesting article Mr. Whitney.

I dislike Bill Gates as much or more than the next guy, primarily because I have known individuals screwed over by his rapacious business practices and theft of others IP, and I dislike his public persona as some sort of brilliant scientist or doctor instead of a rapacious business geek who made a fortune stealing the work of better men.

Be that as it may, I think Bill Gates is quite right that human overpopulation is a very dangerous problem for our species and the health of the planet. This is particularly true given the willingness of our elites to import the excess population of the Third World into previously stable Western Civilization nations such as much of Europe, United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Unless the West has a zero tolerance policy towards immigration from the unassimilable and fertile parts of the Third World, it will be destroyed given the continued reproductive practices of these irresponsible people once imported into the West.

So what is the solution? Tie any aid to the Third World with strict and mandatory birth control. Prevent children from dying of starvation but prevent further reproduction of the irresponsible mother of the starving child. We cannot continue to think that people should have a right to have as many children as they want and at the same time support their irresponsible behavior. This behavior affects us all and leads to great suffering. They have to grow up and so do we.

Gates is right about the problems of human overpopulation, but he cannot be trusted to solve the problem in an ethical manner.

Tommy Thompson , says: September 28, 2020 at 1:15 pm GMT
@RoatanBill emists.

Anyhow most of the Earth's CO2 got locked up in Limestone rock (coral like) rock formations and petroleum and coal deposits since Cambrian epoch. The latter are all related to photosynthesi (solar energy) that is now locked up in hydrocarbons. Photosynthesis is the key life driver on the Earth's surface.

So actually humans should find increased levels of CO2, still far below the Earth history norm, to be a blessing. Maybe the real motive for ridding a hydrocarbon based energy sources, is the scarcity issue, which is a provable scam, but the drive to depopulate the earth of the useless eaters as Darth Kissinger seeks.

Peripatetic Itch , says: September 29, 2020 at 10:28 am GMT

Analysts disagree about how much emissions will go down this year, but the International Energy Agency puts the reduction around 8 percent. In real terms, that means we will release the equivalent of around 47 billion tons of carbon, instead of 51 billion.

Reductions around 8 percent, and quite amazingly, not a hint of any effect on atmospheric CO2 in the data from the celebrated Keeling monitoring station at Mauna Loa. It's the data from stations like this around the world that led us to believe that industrial emissions of CO2 were going to send the world into a runaway greenhouse effect and lead us all to burn to death in 800 degree temperatures as are found on Venus. Or at least drown Mr. Obama's newly purchased $14 million mansion on Martha's Vineyard. But researchers have been looking for an effect for months now, and as I say, not even a hint of any effect.

The Michael Manns and Al Gores of the world would have us believe the shutdown just hasn't gone on long enough -- that we have to extend it another 16 gazillion quarters or so before we will see the effect they have been predicting. It's at least just as likely, however, that industrial emissions are not the prime driver of rising CO2 levels. As some commenters have noted here, it could just be the 800 year lag from warming temperatures in the Medieval Warm Period. Or it could be other human activities such as burning tropical rainforests and oxidizing soils through intensive farming practices. Certainly the OCO-2 satellite (Orbiting Carbon Observatory), launched in 2014, seemed to show that the biggest emissions were coming from the tropics and not from the big industrial centers of Europe and North America. At least it did before they stopped giving us the results from it, and not of course because they conflicted with the narrative./s

Meanwhile the Earth is greening substantially from all the additional CO2. We seem to have added pretty much an entire continent's worth of growing area in the past 60 years or so. It's also becoming clear that the earth's oceans that make us a water world are the cause of emergent effects like thunderstorms that increase our albedo when things start to warm up, and by negative feedback make that runaway greenhouse effect most unlikely.

@RoatanBill benefit.

The major Achilles heel of the powers-that-be is that they don't have enough cops and soldiers to enforce their desires upon us. Sure, they may try to kill and jail as many of us as they can to enforce their dictates, but there are limits to this, as they may end up killing or incarcerating most of the slaves they depend on for their power and wealth. And if history shows anything, it is that murderous dictatorships never last very long.

As proof, I give you the examples of Mussolini, Ceaucescu, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Hitler and Stalin, all of whom met rather unfortunate ends, and whose reigns were rather short-lived.

RT.com : Oxford University anonymously interviews RT journos, reveals we have 'doubts about the West.' In other news, water is wet.
https://www.rt.com/op-ed/501973-rt-oxford-propaganda-study/

Oxford University academics interviewed two dozen former RT employees in a bid to reveal the inner workings of our newsroom. However, they didn't need secret interviews to find out we're a bit skeptical of the West.

In December 2018 I received a message on LinkedIn, the world's most boring social network. It was from Mona Elswah, a researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute, and she and her colleagues wanted to anonymously interview me about my experiences working at RT – specifically how "editorial policies might influence, or not, the news content."

[Sep 29, 2020] Which Drugs Should Biden Take Pre-Debate by Cockburn

Sep 29, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

Authored by 'Cockburn' via The Spectator,

With the first presidential debate now just hours away , President Trump continues to insist that Joe Biden take a drug test. Trump's none-too-subtle insinuation is that the former vice president is so mentally frail that he cannot hope to match the vaulting intellect of the 45th president of the United States on the debate stage.

It's a peculiar form of Trumpian baiting - something the President has probably learned from the world of Mixed Martial Arts - or perhaps the product of a guilty conscience. Trump himself famously sniffed his way through his first debate with Hillary Clinton four years ago, and there's been plenty of speculation over the years that the President consumes medicinal substances to combat some form of attention-deficit disorder.

Cockburn won't weigh in on the specifics. But if Biden were to use drugs for tonight's performance, which ones should he take? Because make no mistake, Biden should absolutely be taking drugs prior to Tuesday's debate.

Pro athletes all take performance enhancing drugs, after all, and winning a presidential election is at least as important as hitting 40 home runs or making the Pro Bowl, or something.

Fortunately, Cockburn is a writer, which means he has countless friends who are perpetually in one sort of drug-induced haze or another. They quickly supplied suggestions.

1. Aricept

Aricept is used to enhance mental acuity in patients suffering from Alzheimer's or vascular dementia. That will certainly be handy for keeping Biden from drooling on the podium. However, Aricept also has the side effect of increasing libido, and has been found to correlate with inappropriate sexual behaviors in those who take it.

...actually, Biden may have been taking this drug for a long time.

... ... ...

3. Ecstasy

Arriving Tuesday night amped on MDMA would offer a host of benefits to Biden. Besides keeping him cheerful and upbeat for the cameras, if Biden is caught, he can easily pivot in a positive direction: by taking a party drug, he will disavow one of his tough-on-crime achievements, the 2003 RAVE Act. Cockburn doesn't understand how contributing to the dramatic collapse of crime rates nationwide is a bad thing, but in 2020 everybody is convinced that it is. Biden debating while hopped upon Molly would go a long way toward showing his remorse. 'Loved-up', Biden would also show a winning spirit of magnanimity towards Donald Trump, which might help sway independents.

Finally, for years Biden was known as the 'senator from MBNA' due to his pro-credit card activism in Congress. If he rebrands as the senator on MDMA, at the least everyone will be really confused.

[Sep 29, 2020] War Is Peace, Freedom Is Slavery, and Ignorance Is Strength: Never mind the body bags from Serbia to Syria- British Labour Party MP nominates Joe Biden for Nobel Peace Prize

Sep 29, 2020 | www.rt.com

Never mind the body bags from Serbia to Syria: British Labour Party MP nominates Joe Biden for Nobel Peace Prize FILE PHOTO. © Reuters / Stephen J. Carrera 218 1 Follow RT on RT Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by UK Labour Party lawmaker Chris Bryant, who credited the politician for easing political tensions amid violent protests across the US.

"When American cities have been in flames and citizen has been pitched against citizen, Joe has been a calming influence to bear," Bryant reportedly said Monday. "When others have resorted to violent solutions, he has argued that the best force is the force of argument because guns can stop a heart, but well-placed words can change many hearts, and many hearts can change the world."

The nomination came just one day before the first US presidential debate. Biden's rival, President Donald Trump, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three times this year, most recently on Monday by Australian law professors praising the "Trump Doctrine" against endless wars.

ALSO ON RT.COM Delayed reaction? Trump's media foe The Atlantic calls to 'end' Nobel Peace Prize after his nomination, but not after Obama's

Trump's other nominations came from Swedish Parliament member Magnus Jacobsson for helping to broker a peace and economic deal between Serbia and Kosovo, and Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde for brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The Trump administration later followed up on that deal by getting Bahrain to join the UAE in a normalization agreement with Israel.

While Bryant praised Biden's efforts to ease civil unrest, Biden was largely silent about the violent nature of many Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests this summer. Even CNN host Don Lemon warned in late August that riots across the US – and the failures of Biden and other Democrat politicians to condemn and quell the violence – was a "blind spot" that could cost Biden votes in November.

The nomination also raised eyebrows among critics of Biden's record of supporting wars and military interventions as a Senator and later as vice president under former President Barack Obama. The Obama-Biden administration campaigned on peace – and Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 largely on speculation that he would deliver on his promises – but the US instead started new wars and prolonged existing ones. The administration finished its last full year, 2016, by dropping more than 26,000 bombs around the world and expanded the presence of US special forces to 70 percent of the world's nations, more than doubling their reach under former President George W. Bush.

Biden not only voted for Bush's Iraq War in 2003 but also argued for removing Saddam Hussein from power in 1998. He also voted to authorize former President Bill Clinton's bombing of Serbia (along with NATO) in 1999, as well as supported Obama's disastrous intervention in Syria.

Mindful of that track record, Twitter users ridiculed Bryant for nominating Biden. "Biden's never been anything but a rubber stamp for CIA bull***t," one commenter tweeted. "I'm sure the people of Libya and Syria will be glad to hear that," one observer said of the nomination, followed by another who added "Not to mention Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran."

Another commenter speculated that he saw a trend in Bryant's move: "I think the idea for these warmongering Henry Jackson Society types is to undermine the Nobel Peace Prize with absurd nominations."

That is some excellently timed next level trolling from Pootie-McPoot-Face.

MARK CHAPMAN September 27, 2020 at 12:19 pm

Of course the USA will never agree to such a proposal, because (a) it does not regard its meddling as 'interference' but as the bringing of the gift of freedom, (b) it stands on its absolute right of judgment as to what is a situation that requires more democracy and what is not, and (c) it probably knows at some level that Russia did not meddle in the US elections, and that it would therefore in that case be constraining its own behavior in exchange for nothing.

But then, when refused – I imagine the US will try to extract something from the offer, such as "A-HA!! So you ADMIT to meddling in our elections!! – Russia can obviously claim, "Well, we tried."

Will Wallace also ask why the wife of tbe Moscow Mayor wired over $3 million to Hunter Biden?

While CNN, the BBC etc is throwing out the Trump tax avoidance claims night and day, the Western MSM continues to ignore the endless, and proven, corruption of one senior Demontard after another.

Democracy in the USA, UK and all nations under the EU Politburo, will only know they have democracy back when Assange is a free man and both Clintons are in jail, along with numerous other USA, UK and EU politicians, banksters and big Corp maggots. When the likes of Soros and Gates are stopped from constantly steering their agendas by using their vast personal wealth to buy the politics and media they want, will the West ever know democracy again.

[Sep 28, 2020] "Democratic presidential nominee

Sep 28, 2020 | www.foxnews.com

Joe Biden alleged on the campaign trail last year that he had jumpstarted his academic career at Delaware State University."

"However, according to a new report in The Washington Times , the historically Black college refutes Biden's claims."

"The director of news service for Delaware State, Carlos Holmes, said that the former vice president was never a student, though he has made appearances on campus twice before for commencement speeches at the university in Dover."

"Vice President Biden did not attend DSU," Holmes said earlier last week. "However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and [2016], and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree."

"Biden had made the claim during an October 2019 town hall event held at the historic Wilson High School in Florence, which was founded in 1866 by the Freedmen's Bureau for Black children seeking an education.

"I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State -- now, I don't want to hear anything negative about Delaware State," Biden told the crowd, as shown on video . "They're my folks."

Biden went on to win the South Carolina primary -- a turning point for the candidate -- before eventually clinching the nomination.

Earlier this month, the Biden-Harris campaign named Delaware State University President Tony Allen -- formerly a speechwriter in Biden's Senate office -- to its transition team advisory council ." FN

------------

Well, pilgrims, the question is - Does Joe know that he was never a student at ole DSU? Was this claim made in SC yet another of his old man's fantasies? You know, like his dreaminess on the subject of the military glory that has been his family's history.

Or was this nonsense spouted at a historic Black high school merely a cynical ploy intended to gain Black votes in the South Carolina Democratic primary election?

Large campaign rallies might not be a concern for much longer, inasmuch, as the security state will probably end rallies saying they fear large crowds will spread the coronavirus. Once rallies are no longer a consideration the intelligence agencies will only need to prop up "drooling Joe" in front of a gold curtain flanked by numerous American flags. Drooling Joe, will read a short speech rehearsed numerous times and then he'll be quickly ushered off the stage before the public can detect Joe is mentally more dead than alive.

And there you have it – democracy in action. This is the kind of democracy the US is promoting throughout the planet. This is the reason behind every regime change war.

...Finally, I will conclude with a short mention of US politicians.

First, Trump. He now declares that the Russians stole the secret of hypersonic weapons from Obama. This reminds me of how the Brits declared that Russia stole their vaccine against the sars-cov-2 virus. But, if the Russians stole all that, why is it that ONLY Russia has deployed hypersonic weapons (not the US) and ONLY Russia has both two vaccines and 2 actual treatments (and not the UK)? For a good laugh, check out Andrei Martyanov's great column " Russia Steal Everything ".

And then there is Nancy Pelosi who, apparently, is considering, yes, you guessed it – yet another impeachment attempt against Trump? The charge this time? Exercising this Presidential prerogative to nominate a successor to Ruth Ginsburg. Okay, Pelosi might be senile, but she also is in deep denial if she thinks impeaching Trump is still a viable project. Frankly? I think that she lost it.

In fact, I think that all the Dems have gone absolutely insane: they are now considering packing both the Supreme Court and the Senate. The fact that doing so will destroy the US political system does not seem to bother them in the least.

[Sep 26, 2020] Did NASA just invented a very expensive way to make a woman infertile: Top NASA Official : Unveils $28 Billion Plan To Land First Woman On Moon

Is space the playground for feminism too ?
Sep 26, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has unveiled a $28 billion program to send the first woman to the moon in 2024 as part of its Artemis program.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine released a statement Monday (Sept. 21), announcing the new mission to put a human back on the lunar surface would be the first time since 1972.

Bridenstine said, "with bipartisan support from Congress, our 21st-century push to the Moon is well within America's reach."

"As we've solidified more of our exploration plans in recent months, we've continued to refine our budget and architecture. We're going back to the moon for scientific discovery, economic benefits, and inspiration for a new generation of explorers," he said.

Bridenstine added that "a sustainable presence" on the moon will eventually pave the way for astronauts to take their "first steps on the Red Planet," referring to NASA's future mission to Mars.

NASA's lunar missions are part of its Artemis plan, including the first mission – known as Artemis I – will launch the Space Launch System (SLS) and the Orion spacecraft around the moon for a series of tests this fall to check performance, life support, and communication capabilities. Astronauts will be apart of the Artemis II mission in 2023. Artemis III allows the first woman and the next man back onto the lunar surface in 2024.

"In 2024, Artemis III will be humanity's return to the surface of the moon - landing the first astronauts on the lunar South Pole. After launching on SLS, astronauts will travel about 240,000 miles to lunar orbit aboard Orion, at which point they will directly board one of the new commercial human landing systems, or dock to the Gateway to inspect it and gather supplies before boarding the landing system for their expedition to the surface," NASA's statement read.

It is naive to assume that Russian would waste money when there is absolutely no need for that ;-) They probably laugh at seeing repetition of Soviet Politburo leader succession situation after Brezhnev's death in the USA. As in famous joke that Chernenko assumed the position of the General Secretary of the CPSU "without regaining consciousness."
In no way they do not understand that a semi-senile neocon warmonger would not be much different for them than the current bully-in-chief, as foreign policy is not controlled by the President, but by the "deep state"?
It is also unclear why Wray pushed this silly "denigration" narrative: how you can denigrate a person, who is denigrating himself by participating in Presidential election, while clearly entered a stage of cognitive decline ? Is laughing at him a denigration, or just a natural reaction on such a situation? Or Christopher Wray thinks that White House is an assisted living facility and all major decisions are done in CIA and FBI headquarters anyway? And that paying due respect to any contender of the Presidential race is a duty of any foreign power?
And why Kremlin should like Biden who visited Moscow in 2011 and told both Putin and opposition leaders the Obama oadministration think that Vladimir Putin shouldn't run for president once more.
Notable quotes:
"... ... The Treasury Department, in the meantime, sanctioned a Ukrainian politician it known as a Russian agent for efforts to tar Biden for alleged corruption associated to his son's enterprise dealings in Ukraine. ..."
Sep 25, 2020 | finance.yahoo.com

U.S. politics have become so polarized that there's little need for Russia to step in and invent new controversies, according to a senior British intelligence official.

Russia is nonetheless conducting a "very active" campaign to denigrate Biden and sow divisions in the U.S. political scene, FBI Director Christopher Wray said last week.

... ... ...

Russian officers deny meddling, both now or in the 2016 elections. On Friday, Putin proposed that the US and Russia alternate ensures of non-interference in elections, in keeping with a assertion on the Kremlin web site. He additionally known as for talks on info safety and restoring cybersecurity cooperation, reviving a proposal he floated after the 2016 election.

Since that vote, Moscow's infatuation with Trump has dimmed. Russian officers say "Russophobia" in the US institution received't change regardless of who's in the White House. But the distinction between the two candidates is putting. While Trump mentioned final week that China and mail-in voting have been higher threats than Russia, Biden has mentioned he'd make Moscow pay for meddling, calling Russia an opponent.

... The Treasury Department, in the meantime, sanctioned a Ukrainian politician it known as a Russian agent for efforts to tar Biden for alleged corruption associated to his son's enterprise dealings in Ukraine.

They know he, like his opponent, offers no relief from the constant militarism and forever wars that the American public is fed up with.

They know he, like his opponent, is corrupt and represents corporate interests and that the American public sees him as out of touch and incapable of offering anything in terms of substantive change.

They know that so long as Biden doesn't offer any kind of viable alternative to the status quo his candidacy is going to be weak and ineffectual and that there isn't much of anything they could do that could possibly enhance that effect.

So, they're content to sit back and let nature take its course. In other words, they realize the best way to interfere in the American elections... is by NOT interfering with them.

And how could the Americans possibly counter such a strategy? The deviousness is off the charts. Damn those Russians!

[Sep 22, 2020] China and the Washington Oscars, by Fred Reed

Sep 22, 2020 | www.unz.com

Overage Cold War hawks and salesmen for the arms makers like to say that China is "totalitarian," which sounds appropriately terrible without meaning anything specific. How many people have been in a genuinely totalitarian and Communist country?

I was in the Soviet Union when it still was the Soviet Union, and it closely matched John Bolton's onanistic fantasies: grim, poor, intimidated, no stores or consumer goods, empty streets with cars only for the government, people sullen and dispirited.

As we flew out on Aeroflot, people spontaneously broke into applause as we passed the Russian frontier.

... ... ...

Conservatives of formidable economic illiteracy speak of China as a communist dictatorship. The government, perhaps not wanting to admit a mistake, calls itself communist. Geriatric hawks make themselves foolish by referring to "Chicoms," but China is in fact a pragmatic authoritarian oligarchy, not a dictatorship, and communist countries do not have hundreds of thousands of private businesses. You cannot criticize the government and the Great Firewall of China blocks the international internet. Not good, but totalitarian? Try North Korea.

... ... ...

Americans also grouse that fentanyl, which they usually pronounce "fentanol," comes from China, just as Mexicans complain that the weaponry of the drug cartels comes from the US. True in both cases, but it is a bit of a leap to attribute either to governmental hostility rather than freelance criminality.

... ... ...

People in the US speak of China's brazen aggressiveness. Chinese aggressiveness? Did China invade Iraq, killing hundreds of thousands? Has China spent almost twenty years butchering Afghans, militarily seized Syria's oil, supported Saudi Arabia in a murderous war against Yemen, supervised the destruction of Libya, bombed Somalia? Does China try to starve Iran and Venezuela into giving Washington control of their oil? Does China push its (nonexistent) NATO vassals ever closer to Russian border? Yes, China is an international menace. No one can doubt it.

[Sep 22, 2020] The War on Populism- The Final Act, by C.J. Hopkins

Sep 22, 2020 | www.unz.com

So, it appears the War on Populism is building toward an exciting climax. All the proper pieces are in place for a Class-A GloboCap color revolution, and maybe even civil war. You got your unauthorized Putin-Nazi president, your imaginary apocalyptic pandemic, your violent identitarian civil unrest, your heavily-armed politically-polarized populace, your ominous rumblings from military quarters you couldn't really ask for much more.

OK, the plot is pretty obvious by now (as it is in all big-budget action spectacles, which is essentially what color revolutions are), but that won't spoil our viewing experience. The fun isn't in guessing what is going to happen. Everybody knows what's going to happen. The fun is in watching Bruce, or Sigourney, or "the moderate rebels," or the GloboCap "Resistance," take down the monster, or the terrorists, or Hitler, and save the world, or democracy, or whatever.

The show-runners at GloboCap understand this, and they are sticking to the classic Act III formula (i.e., the one they teach in all those scriptwriting seminars, which, full disclosure, I teach a few of those). They've been running the War on Populism by the numbers since the very beginning. I'm going to break that down in just a moment, act by act, plot point by plot point, but, first, let's quickly cover the basics.

The first thing every big Hollywood action picture (or GloboCap color revolution) needs is a solid logline to build the plot around. The logline shows us: (1) our protagonist, (2) what our protagonist is trying to do, and (3) our antagonist or antagonistic force.

For example, here's one everyone will recognize:

"A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers."

In our case, the logline writes itself:

"After America is taken over by a Russian-backed Hitlerian dictator, the forces of democracy unite to depose the tyrant and save the free world."

Donald Trump is our antagonist, of course. And what an antagonist he has been! As the deep-state spooks and the corporate media have been relentlessly repeating for the last four years, the man is both a Russian-backed traitor and literally the resurrection of Hitler! In terms of baddies, it doesn't get any better.

It goes without saying that our protagonist is GloboCap (i.e., the global capitalist empire), or "democracy," as it is known in the entertainment business.

Now, we're in the middle of Act III already, and, as in every big-budget action movie, our protagonist suffered a series of mounting losses all throughout Act II, and the baddie was mostly driving the action. Now it's time for the Final Push, but, before all the action gets underway, here's a quick recap of those previous acts. Ready? All right, here we go

Act I

(status quo/inciting incident)

There democracy (i.e., GloboCap) was, peacefully operating its de facto global capitalist empire like a normal global hegemon (i.e., destabilizing, restructuring, and privatizing everything it hadn't already destabilized and privatized, and OK, occasionally murdering, torturing, and otherwise mercilessly oppressing people), when out of nowhere it was viciously attacked by Donald Trump and his Putin-Nazi "populists," who stole the 2016 election from Clinton with those insidious Facebook ads. (For you writers, this was the Inciting Incident.)

(new situation/predicament/lock-in)

GloboCap did not take this well. The deep state and the corporate media started shrieking about a coming " Age of Darkness ," " The death of globalization at the hands of white supremacy ," " racial Orwellianism ," " Zionist anti-Semitism ," the " Bottomless Pit of Fascism ," and so on. Liberals festooned themselves with safety pins and went out looking for minorities to hide in their attics throughout the occupation. According to GloboCap, every "populist" that voted for Trump (or just refused to vote for Clinton) was a genocidal white supremacist undeserving of either empathy or mercy. Somewhere in there, the "Resistance" was born . (This is the plot point known as the Lock-In, where the protagonist commits to the struggle ahead.)

Act II (a)

(progress/obstacles)

As is traditional at the opening of Act II, things were looking promising for GloboCap. The "Resistance" staged those pink pussyhat protests, and the corporate media were pumping out Russia and Hitler propaganda like a Goebbelsian piano. Yes, there were obstacles, but the "Resistance" was growing . And then, in May of 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed, and "Russiagate" was officially launched. It appeared that Donald Trump's days were numbered!

(rising action/first culmination)

But, no, it was never going to be that easy. (If it was, feature films would be less than an hour long, not to mention incredibly boring.) There was plenty of action (and an endless series of "bombshells") throughout the ensuing two years, but by the end of March 2019, "Russiagate" had blown up in GloboCap's face . "Populism" was still on the rise! It was time for GloboCap to get serious. (This was the classic first culmination, sometimes known as The Point of No Return.)

Act II (b)

(complications/subplots/higher stakes)

In the aftermath of the "Russiagate" fiasco, the GloboCap "Resistance" flailed around for a while. An assortment of ridiculous subplots unfolded Obstructiongate, Ukrainegate, Pornstargate (and I'm probably forgetting some "gates"), white-supremacist non-terrorist terrorism, brain-devouring Russian-Cubano crickets, Russian spy whales, and other such nonsense. Meanwhile, the forces of "populism" were running amok all across the planet. The gilets jaunes were on the verge of taking down Macron in France, and gangs of neo-nationalist boneheads had launched a series of frontal assaults on Portlandia, GloboCap Anti-Fascist HQ, which Antifa was barely holding off.

(second culmination/major setback)

All wasn't totally lost, however. GloboCap sprang back into action, successfully Hitlerizing Jeremy Corbyn , the leader of leftist "populism," and thus preventing the mass exodus of Jews from Great Britain. And the US elections were on the horizon. Trump was still Russian-agent Hitler, after all, so he wasn't going to be too hard to beat. All that GloboCap had to do was put forth a viable Democratic candidate, then let the corporate media do their thing. OK, first, they had to do Bernie Sanders (because he was another "populist" figurehead, and the point of the entire War on Populism has been to crush the "populist" resistance to global capitalism from both the Left and the Right), but the DNC made short work of that.

So, everything was looking hunky-dory until -- and you screenwriters saw this coming, didn't you? -- the pivotal plot-point at the end of Act II, The Major Setback, or The Dark Night of the Soul, when all seems lost for our protagonist.

[Sep 21, 2020] Pompous Pompeo continues his antics: Pompeo mocked for saying 'no other state' can block MULTILATERAL sanctions US wants to impose on Iran despite UNSC pushback

Sanctions will cost money not only to Iran, but to the USA too.
Sep 21, 2020 | www.rt.com

"If at any time the United States believes Iran has failed to meet its commitments, no other state can block our ability to snap back those multilateral sanctions," Pompeo declared in a statement posted on his official Twitter account on Sunday evening.

The top US diplomat was referring to the avalanche of sanctions Washington has been hellbent on slapping on Tehran after the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) overwhelmingly rejected the US resolution to extend a 13-year arms embargo against the Islamic Republic past October earlier this week.

The humiliating defeat , which saw only one member of the 15-nation body (the Dominican Republic) siding with the US, while China and Russia opposed the resolution, and all other nations, including France and the UK, abstained, did not discourage Washington, which doubled down on its threat to hit Iran with biting sanctions.

... ... ...

"Of course other states can block America's ability to impose multilateral sanctions. The US can impose sanctions by itself, but can't force others to do it," Nicholas Grossman, teaching assistant professor at the Department of Political Science, University of Illinois, tweeted.

"That's what 'multilateral' means. Is our SecState really this dumb?" Grossman asked.

Daniel Larison, senior editor at the American Conservative, suggested that Pompeo might be having a hard time grasping the meaning of the word 'multilateral'.

Some argued that Pompeo could not be unaware of the contradictory nature of his statement. Dan Murphy, former Middle East and South Asia correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, called it "one of the most diplomatically illiterate sentences of all time."

"I guess the end game here is [to] alienate the rest of the world even further to feed his persecution complex?" Murphy wrote.

John Twomey, 16 August, 2020

Explanation. What Pompeo understands and what many others can't grasp is that the US decides if their sanctions are "multilateral" because the USA speaks for all other countries whether they like it or not.

Authored (mostly satirically) by CJ Hopkins via The Consent Factory,

So, it appears the War on Populism is building toward an exciting climax. All the proper pieces are in place for a Class-A GloboCap color revolution , and maybe even civil war. You got your unauthorized Putin-Nazi president, your imaginary apocalyptic pandemic, your violent identitarian civil unrest, your heavily-armed politically-polarized populace, your ominous rumblings from military quarters you couldn't really ask for much more.

OK, the plot is pretty obvious by now (as it is in all big-budget action spectacles, which is essentially what color revolutions are), but that won't spoil our viewing experience. The fun isn't in guessing what is going to happen. Everybody knows what's going to happen. The fun is in watching Bruce, or Sigourney, or "the moderate rebels," or the GloboCap "Resistance," take down the monster, or the terrorists, or Hitler, and save the world, or democracy, or whatever.

[Sep 20, 2020] Biden claims 200 MILLION Americans will die of Covid-19 'by the time I finish THIS TALK'

He meant 200K not 200M. Bu this is too sensitive topic to make such an error -- it became a blunder.
Sep 20, 2020 | www.rt.com

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden issued a stark warning to Americans, saying that "200 million people will die" of Covid-19 by the end of his short speech. Biden's wacky math once again raised concern over his mental fitness.

Speaking in Philadelphia on Sunday, Biden hammered President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but one of his statements stood out from the rest of the speech.

"It's estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk," he announced, waving his arms for emphasis.

Biden has fumbled his figures before, claiming earlier this summer that more than 120 million Americans had died of Covid-19, overstating the true death toll by a factor of 1,000. Back in February, he claimed during a primary debate that "150 million" Americans had died of gun violence since 2007 – nearly half the country's population.

President Trump has made attacking Biden's mental health a key tactic in his reelection campaign. With Biden floundering through speeches, and relying increasingly on a teleprompter to stay on message, Trump joked during a rally on Saturday night that his Democratic opponent is "shot," and has "half his head left."

[Sep 20, 2020] Biden Promises Fewer Fires, Floods, Hurricanes if He Wins

Sep 20, 2020 | pjmedia.com

On Monday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden condemned President Donald Trump as a "climate arsonist," predicting that if the president wins reelection in November, America will witness more "hellish" events like fires in the West, flooding in the Midwest, and hurricanes on the East Coast. He effectively promised that if he wins, America will suffer from fewer fires, fewer floods, and fewer hurricanes.

Although Biden excoriated Trump for "ignoring the facts" and "denying reality," he focused his remarks on the wildfires ravaging California, Oregon, and Washington State -- fires exacerbated by bad forest management more than any sort of climate change.

"If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of America ablaze? If you give a climate denier four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised when more of America is under water?" Biden asked.

[Sep 20, 2020] Woke Capitalism

Sep 19, 2020 | www.unz.com

The particular corner of capitalism featured in this story is the fine old financial-services firm of Goldman Sachs. You may recall Goldman Sachs signaling their virtue to the world back in in January when they announced that they'd only do business with firms that had at least one diverse board member, which I think means not a straight white male.

Well, a friend of mine is employed at Goldman Sachs, and he's been passing stuff on to me: stuff like this, which I reproduce with my friend's permission, some names redacted

It's a memo that was prominently featured on the main page of the internal Goldman Sachs web site August 27th, for the edification of all employees. The title of the memo is: Why Language Can Be One of Our Biggest Allies at Goldman Sachs. The main text is over seven hundred words, too long for me to read out in its entirety, so I'll just cherry-pick a few representative quotes, with links added.

As a firm, we made the decision to capitalize the "B" in Black consistently in all communications on June 5, weeks before the Associated Press officially changed its writing style on June 19 .

I guess you could say that at least the competitive spirit of capitalism is visible there. Gotta be better than the next guy; gotta stay ahead of the market; hey, look -- we did the capital-"B" thing two weeks before AP!

... ... ...

So there's a glimpse into the heart of Woke Capitalism. It makes the point that this poisonous gibberish is now universal among our ruling elites. I mean, it makes the point because if a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs doesn't belong to the ruling elite, nobody does.

It's like this throughout the Establishment: Wall Street, Big Tech, Hollywood, the universities this is the reigning ideology. White Supremacy and Systemic Racism are in the air we breathe, tormenting the soul even of a Wall Street MD on a high six-figure salary and a seven-figure annual bonus.

And no, I didn't make those numbers up. In the matter of executive compensation, there is nothing niggardly (so to speak ) about Goldman Sachs.

This is the reigning ideology. Yes, it's crazy and stupid and bears no relation to any actual facts in the world. You'd better pretend to believe it, though. Bend the knee and bow the head, or you'll get nowhere in life.

Certainly not at Goldman Sachs.

Banning the terms master and slave doesn't change the reality that managers appropriating an ever greater share of profits for themselves reduces labor to a status even lower than a slave. A master at least had to make sure his slave could eat. Not so a modern CEO. He can just make an employee redundant and let that worker figure out where his next meal will come from.

Sep 20, 2020 | www.rt.com

The temper of a mob is fickle, as a group of Antifa protesters have demonstrated in Philadelphia. In an apparent case of mistaken identity, the mob chased one of their own with hammers, smashed his car, and terrorized his dog.

The leftist protesters gathered in Philadelphia's Clark Park on Saturday to protest a rally organized by the right-wing Proud Boys. As conservative commentator James Klug was talking on camera to the leftists, one masked man approached him with a baseball bat and slammed it into the ground beside him.

According to Blaze TV's Elijah Schaffer, the mob mistook the bat-wielding man for one of the right-wingers, and chased him out of the park, to his car.

According to Blaze TV's Elijah Schaffer, the mob mistook the bat-wielding man for one of the right-wingers, and chased him out of the park, to his car.

Surrounding the vehicle, the masked mob smashed its windows with hammers and kicked in its panels. Though the man can't be seen inside the car, Schaffer claimed he was the same man who was chased out of the park, as did journalist Kalen D'Almeida.

As the rioters pounded on the car, a dog inside began barking, lunging for the smashed rear window and snarling at the mob. "F**k you and your dog," one man shouted as the driver pulled away.

According to D'Almeida, who filmed the smash-up, none of the Proud Boys actually showed up to the park as planned. D'Almeida wrote on Twitter that "Antifa was waiting ready to attack anyone for any reason today," while Schaffer shared a video of the masked miscreants physically assaulting right-wing reporter Lisa Reynolds Barbounis.

The level of political correctness demonstrated by Vampire squid actually exceed the level achieved by CPSU in the USSR, which probably contributed to the USSR dissolution as everybody was tired of this level of primitive hypocrisy and enforced speech standard; including the CPSU leadership.
Woke racism is a new form of financial oligarchy division and control of prols...
Notable quotes:

... ... ...

In Engineering, our colleagues [have] collaborated with others in the financial services industry to address racially insensitive terminology in computer security terms. This work included eliminating the use of "blacklist" and "whitelist," as well as of "master" and "slave," when describing the relationship between hardware components.

Perhaps the use of those words "master" and "slave" in the computer department just get people thinking a bit too much about the power relation between the Indian project manager and his legacy-American subordinate who's being kept on for three months to train his replacement, an H-1B also from India -- in fact the project manager's nephew.

Another example of a phrase that can have harmful impact is "All Lives Matter." The death of George Floyd, and, as recently as this week, the shooting of Jacob Blake multiple times in the back, demonstrate that until the deadly violent acts against unarmed Black people subside, all lives will not matter until Black Lives Matter.

You didn't think we were going to get through this without a reference to the Holy Blessed Martyr Floyd, did you?

Although I'll give a smidgen of credit here to Goldman Sachs: They merely wrote "the death of George Floyd." It's routine in Mainstream media outlets now to see " the killing of George Floyd ," or even "the murder of George Floyd." The Economist , for example, has used both in straight reportage. It has of course not yet been established to any good evidentiary standard that Floyd was killed, let alone murdered.

It's not accurate to refer to someone's "sexual preference," which would imply a choice that can be changed, instead we refer to an individual's "sexual orientation."

That's a bit hair-splitty, isn't it? A bit dubious, actually. An orientation may be voluntary, mayn't it? I can orient myself to the north, south, east, or west, according to my preference.

Goldman Sachs doesn't just rely on memos to keep its workforce up-to-date on the Party line. Conversations! -- gotta have conversations . To give employees the right idea, the firm records the kind of conversations it wants them to have and puts them on YouTube so they can watch at home.

I'm not sure what the rule is for watching in office hours, but I'd guess it's OK ah, heck, probably compulsory.

Novichok In Navalny's Water Bottle by Tyler Durden Sat, 09/19/2020 - 09:20 Twitter Facebook Reddit Email Print

Authored by Stephen Lendman,

Alice's "curiouser and curiouser" remark in Lewis Carroll's Adventures in Wonderland applies to dubious twists in the Navalny novichok poisoning hoax.

No evidence or motive links Russia to what happened to him.

Was the August 20 Tomsk, Russia incident made-in-the-USA?

Was Germany pressured, bullied or bribed to go along -- at the expense of its own self-interest?

Clearly Angela Merkel, other German officials, their Western counterparts, and establishment media know the claim about Navalny's novichok poisoning is a colossal hoax.

They know that anyone exposed to the toxin, the world's deadliest, would be dead in minutes.

The same goes for others in close proximity to the exposed individual.

about:blank

about:blank

me title=

Navalny is very much alive and recovering nearly a month after falling ill.

No one he came in contact with developed novichok poisoning symptoms.

Russian doctors treating him with state-of-the-art equipment and tests found no toxins of any kind in his system.

They saved his life and stabilized his condition, enabling him to travel to Berlin for further treatment.

If the Kremlin wanted him dead, he'd have been left untreated in Russia to die.

He's recovering because of heroic treatment by Russian doctors.

On Thursday, elements close to Navalny shifted the fake news novichok poisoning narrative from tea he drank in the Tomsk, Russia airline terminal to the deadly nerve agent in his hotel room water bottle.

Are other versions of what happened to him coming ahead?

Claiming novichok traces were found in a hotel water bottle he drank from doesn't pass the smell test.

The deadly substance in an opened hotel room bottle would likely contaminate and kill anyone near it.

If, in fact, Navalny was poisoned by novichok in his hotel room overnight, he'd have died in minutes, clearly not what happened.

The novichok in a hotel room bottle scenario is implausible on its face.

Claiming members of his team entered his hotel room after learning of his illness, found it uncleaned, and examined everything potentially useful for an investigation -- "recording, describing, and packing" everything would have exposed them to novichok if it existed by touching the alleged bottle with the toxin.

Whatever happened to Navalny wasn't from novichok poisoning in a bottle or from any other source.

On Thursday, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow's representative to the OPCW Alexander Shulgin requested copies of files the organization received from Germany on Navalny's condition, but got no response, adding:

"According to our data Germany and a whole number of (other Western) countries (are) cultivating the OPCW" with regard to the Navalny incident.

Since he arrived in Berlin for treatment over three weeks ago, Merkel's government stonewalled Russia by refusing to provide evidence it claims to have about novichok poisoning because there is none.

On Thursday, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said "(t)here is too much absurdity about this whole situation to take anyone's word on trust, so we are not going to take anyone's word," adding:

"(T)he situation is as follows: the OPCW Technical Secretariat says 'we know nothing. Talk to the Germans,' and the Germans say 'we know nothing. Talk to the OPCW."

Russian lower house State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin suggested foreign intelligence responsibility for what happened to Navalny.

On Thursday, majority Russophobic European Parliament (EP) MPs adopted a resolution that calls for an "immediate launch of an impartial international investigation (sic)" on the Navalny incident by the EU, its allies, the UN, Council of Europe, and OPCW -- to frame Russia for what happened to Navalny.

NEVER MISS THE NEWS THAT MATTERS MOST

ZEROHEDGE DIRECTLY TO YOUR INBOX

Receive a daily recap featuring a curated list of must-read stories.

The resolution also calls for (unjustifiably and unlawfully) sanctioning Russia and suspending Nord Stream 2 construction.

EP resolutions are non-binding. The EP, Council of the European Union, European Council, and European Commission operate separately from individual member states.

Time and again earlier, they irresponsibly bashed Russia in cahoots with the US, adopting non-binding resolutions.

According to Zakharova earlier, anti-Russia propaganda is based on "paranoia phobias, fictitious messages (and) myths."

Interviewed by Radio Sputnik in Moscow, Sergey Lavrov said Western governments want Russia "punished both for what is happening in Belarus and for the incident with Navalny," adding:

They refuse to fulfill mandated obligations under the European Convention on Legal Aid by not responding to official requests by the Russian Prosecutor General's Office for documented information on Navalny's condition.

"Germany says that it cannot tell us anything. They say, go to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)."

"We went there several times. They say go to Berlin."

"They loudly declare that the fact of poisoning has been established. Except for Russia nobody could have done it. Admit it."

"All this has already happened with the" fake news Skripals novichok poisoning incident.

Russia is a valued ally of all world community countries.

Instead of fostering cooperative relations with Moscow, actions by Germany and other EU countries risk rupturing them.

Protests potentially nullified all potential positive effects from lookdown in large cities like NYC, if such exist. So all economic damage was in vain and lockdown was just a capricious and arbitrary move by ambitious and power hungry Dem politicians. And that fact alone make the major on NYC and the governor on NY state look like completely politicized idiots.
If the crowd is dense, as often is the case in riots at places of confrontation with the police cordon, it does not matter much if people are indoor or outdoor, what matters if the length of the contact. Add to this that looting happens indoors.

...On Wednesday, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh called out CNN's hypocrisy on this matter, noting that "if people can protest in the streets by the tens of thousands, if people can riot, if people can gamble in casinos, then certainly they can gather peaceably under the First Amendment to hear from the president of the United States."

"It does not care why it is that people are gathering but it does care about the conditions under which they're gathering," Wen argued, adding "outdoors much safer than indoors and wearing masks obviously much safer than not wearing masks."

"I would also in this case would distinguish between the behavior of the participants while at protests versus rallies," she continued, arguing that BLM protesters are more "aware" of the risks than Trump supporters.

"At protests many people are aware of the risks and doing everything they can to reduce that risk versus at many of the rallies we are seeing people going in defiance," Wen claimed.

Those clever and evil Russians are at the top of their game again. For less then 20 millions dollars they dispose Hillary in 2016 and now intend to dispose Creepy Joe. Wait, is that this a valuable service to the nation?
The collapse of neoliberalism forces the US neoliberal elite to deploy desperate measures to preserve the unity of the nation and the US-controlled world neoliberal empire. Neo-McCarthyism in one of those dirty tricks. The pioneer in this dirty game was Hillary, but now it is shared by both parties.
According to FBI director Christopher Wray you need to be Russian to understand that Biden as a Presidential Candidate is DOA. And that decision of DNC to prop him instead of Sanders or Warren was pretty idiotic, and was based on the power the neoliberal wing (aka Clinton mafia) still holds within the Party. You have to be pretty delusional to believe Biden has all his marbles.
And by "interference" he means reporting in the news and expressing own opinion. Like in 2016 looks like FBI again crossed the line and had become the third political party, which intends to be the kingmaker of the Presidential elections. So here's a suggestion: call in UN observers to the elections.
Russian media influence is actually very easy to prove -- just ask yourself, do you trust RT more than CNN? But if a person laugh every time Joe Biden talks and it has nothing to do with Russia.
And if this nonsense again comes from the FBI Director, the legitimate question is "What next?" The claim that Putin ordered the assassination of Abraham Lincoln?
Look at all those hapless intelligence agencies, helplessly watching Russian hackers stealing election. But, wait a minute, we are talking about arguably the largest, best equipped, best financed and most devious intelligence agencies on the Earth. So it is natural to assume that people who want to steal the election are those who cry most loudly about the Russian influence.
Actually If Russia really wanted to "sink" Biden all that it would need to do is noisily support him openly. The rabid Russophobia would do the rest: Unfortunately most of of Americans are spoon fed neoliberal propaganda and don't care much about if it's real or not. That reminds me the USSR where the life of people was difficult enough not to pay attention to Communist Party slogans and propaganda.
Notable quotes:
"... According to the FBI director, the Russians' primary goal seems to be not only to " sow divisiveness and discord ," but to trash Democratic nominee Joe Biden – along with " what the Russians see as a kind of anti-Russian establishment " – through social media, " use of proxies ," state-run media, and " online journals ." ..."
"... Former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats even suggested Congress create another election integrity body to supervise the vote in November, apparently concerned the existing authorities – all 54 of them, one for each state plus four federal entities tasked with keeping meddlers, foreign and domestic, shut out – weren't enough. ..."
"... "Crowd pleasing claims" is spot on the money. Sounds like the FBI has been tasked to lay some groundwork for the "after party". He knows what he is doing. ..."
"... Nothing new from the man who was Comey's assistant AG when Comey was Deputy Attorney General. ..."

Russia is reprising its still-unproven 2016 election meddling efforts, this time targeting Democratic challenger Joe Biden, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray, who gave no evidence to support his crowd-pleasing claims.

Wray told the House of Representatives that Russia is taking a " very active " role in the 2020 US election, claiming Moscow " continues to try to influence our elections, primarily through what we call malign foreign influence " during a Thursday hearing on national security threats.

ALSO ON RT.COM Damned if you do, damned if you don't? US intel director warns all election outcomes may be driven by Russia, China or Iran

According to the FBI director, the Russians' primary goal seems to be not only to " sow divisiveness and discord ," but to trash Democratic nominee Joe Biden – along with " what the Russians see as a kind of anti-Russian establishment " – through social media, " use of proxies ," state-run media, and " online journals ."

Wray contrasted 2020's alleged meddling with that of 2016, which he claimed involved " an effort to target election infrastructure ," presenting no evidence to back up either current or past claims – other than that the FBI or other intelligence agencies had made the same claims in the past. There is no actual evidence that Russia interfered with election infrastructure in 2016.

While four years of similarly flavored conspiracy theories blaming Russia for Donald Trump's 2016 win have come up empty-handed, the paucity of real-world evidence for 'Russian meddling' has not stopped Wray and other US intel officials from hyping it up as a major threat to the integrity of the democratic process.

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center suggested last month that, while Russia would interfere in the election in favor of Trump, China and Iran would meddle on behalf of Biden – implying Americans couldn't vote at all without doing the bidding of a foreign nation.

Former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats even suggested Congress create another election integrity body to supervise the vote in November, apparently concerned the existing authorities – all 54 of them, one for each state plus four federal entities tasked with keeping meddlers, foreign and domestic, shut out – weren't enough.

Can't feel anything but sympathy for those that are so easily influenced. If/when Biden loses, perhaps blaming his lack of ability to string a few words together might be more relevant than any kind of imaginary foreign interference.

Nothing new from the man who was Comey's assistant AG when Comey was Deputy Attorney General. Wray made it clear when sworn in for position of FBI head that he believed Russia had interfered to help Trump win 2016 election. The only question that remains is why Trump picked him for the job.

Katyusha rockets are normally fired in salvos of dozens. Two of them being launched against the American fortress in Baghdad is just gentle prodding.

Another interesting point is that Katyusha rockets (BM-21 Grad) are dirt cheap. Whatever was used to intercept them was several orders of magnitude more expensive. I'm sure the Iraqi militias can keep lobbing Katyushas at the Green Zone for much longer than America can afford to try to shoot them down.

"Oregon's chief information security officer, Lisa Vasa, told the Washington Post in September 2017 that her team blocks 'upwards of 14 million attempts to access our network every day."'

This is the usual ridiculous claim from almost every organization. They treat every Internet packet that hits their firewall as being an "attempt to access" the network (or worse, a "breach" - which it is not.) Which is technically true, but would only be relevant if they had *no* firewall - a setup which no organization runs these days. By definition, 99.99999% of those attempts are random mass scans of a block of IP addresses by either a hacker or some malware on someone else's machine - or even a computer security researcher attempting to find out how many sites are vulnerable.

[Sep 12, 2020] Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman Infects Readers With 9/11 Dementia

Sep 12, 2020 | www.moonofalabama.org

psychohistorian , Sep 11 2020 16:05 utc | 2

The price for the worst tweet of the year goes to Paul Krugman .


bigger

In the real world the U.S. reacted to 9/11 by doing extremely bad and ridiculous things as well as this :

In the days, weeks, and months immediately following the 9/11 attacks, Arab-Americans, South Asian-Americans, Muslim-Americans, and Sikh-Americans were the targets of widespread hate violence. Many of the perpetrators of these acts of hate violence claimed they were acting patriotically by retaliating against those responsible for 9/11.
...
Just after September 11, numerous Arabs, Muslims, and individuals perceived to be Arab or Muslim were assaulted, and some killed, by individuals who believed they were responsible for or connected to the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. The first backlash killing occurred four days after September 11.

Balbir Singh Sodhi was shot to death on September 15 as he was planting flowers outside his Chevron gas station. The man who shot Sodhi, Frank Roque, had told an employee of an Applebee's restaurant that he was "going to go out and shoot some towel heads." Roque mistakenly thought Sodhi was Arab because Sodhi, an immigrant from India, had a beard and wore a turban as part of his Sikh faith. After shooting Sodhi, Roque drove to a Mobil gas station a few miles away and shot at a Lebanese-American clerk. He then drove to a home he once owned and shot and almost hit an Afghani man who was coming out the front door. When he was arrested two hours later, Roque shouted, "I stand for America all the way."

The next two killings were committed by a man named Mark Stroman. On September 15, 2001, Stroman shot and killed Waquar Hassan, an immigrant from Pakistan, at Hassan's grocery store in Dallas, Texas. On October 4, 2001, Stroman shot and killed Vasudev Patel, an immigrant from India and a naturalized U.S. citizen, while Patel was working at his Shell station convenience store. A store video camera recorded the killing, helping police to identify Stroman as the killer. Stroman later told a Dallas television station that he shot Hassan and Patel because, "We're at war. I did what I had to do. I did it to retaliate against those who retaliated against us."

Beyond these killings, there were more than a thousand other anti-Muslim or anti-Arab acts of hate which took the form of physical assaults, verbal harassment and intimidation, arson, attacks on mosques, vandalism, and other property damage.

Instead of "calming prejudice" the GB Bush administration institutionalized hate crimes:

First, in the weeks immediately following the September 11 attacks, the government began secretly arresting and detaining Arab, Muslim, and South Asian men. Within the first two months after the attacks, the government had detained at least 1,200 men.
...
Second, in November 2001, the Department of Justice began efforts to "interview" approximately 5,000 men between the ages of 18 and 33 from Middle Eastern or Muslim nations who had arrived in the United States within the previous two years on a temporary student, tourist, or business visa and were lawful residents of the United States. Four months later, the government announced it would seek to interview an additional 3,000 men from countries with an Al Qaeda presence.
...
Third, in September 2002, the government implemented a "Special Registration" program also known as NSEERS (National Security Entry-Exit Registration System), requiring immigrant men from 26 mostly Muslim countries to register their name, address, telephone number, place of birth, date of arrival in the United States, height, weight, hair and eye color, financial information and the addresses, birth dates and phone numbers of parents and any foreign friends with the government.

Besides all that a rather useless security theater was installed at U.S. airports which has costs many billions in lost time and productivity ever since. The Patriot Act was introduced which allowed for unlimited spying on private citizens. Wars were launched that were claimed to be justified by 9/11. These were "mass outbreaks of anti-Muslim sentiment and violence. Many were killed and maimed in them. People were tortured and vanished. All of this happened largely to applause of a majority of the U.S. people which were glued to 24 and dreamed of being "terrorist hunters".

Anyone with a functional memory knows that the U.S. reaction to 9/11 was anything but "pretty calm". It is ridiculous that Krugman is claiming that.

Why didn't you mention that nearly all labs are running 35-40 cycles which guarantees a positive test, simply from noise.

The inventor of the test said if you don't find anything after 15 cycles, it probably isn't there. After 20 cycles the noise starts to be greater than any real information. By 30, the test is mostly noise. More than 35, the test is completely worthless.

Of course I've been saying this for five months, but most people didn't listen. After the NYT article came out, people I know started saying, "How did you know?"

I said, "Because I have critical thinking skills. Why didn't you believe me? Name a time I've steered you wrong."

The PCR test is not useful for what they are using it for apparently. This has been known since the beginning. Here is quote regarding AIDS:

"Kary Mullis, who won the Nobel Prize in Science for inventing the PCR, is thoroughly convinced that HIV is not the cause of "AIDS". With regard to the viral load tests, which attempt to use PCR for counting viruses, Mullis has stated: "Quantitative PCR is an oxymoron." PCR is intended to identify substances qualitatively, but by its very nature is unsuited for estimating numbers. Although there is a common misimpression that the viral load tests actually count the number of viruses in the blood, these tests cannot detect free, infectious viruses at all; they can only detect proteins that are believed, in some cases wrongly, to be unique to HIV. The tests can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but not viruses themselves.

What PCR does is to select a genetic sequence and then amplify it enormously. It can accomplish the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack; it can amplify that needle into a haystack. Like an electronically amplified antenna, PCR greatly amplifies the signal, but it also greatly amplifies the noise. Since the amplification is exponential, the slightest error in measurement, the slightest contamination, can result in errors of many orders of magnitude."

[Sep 06, 2020] Official color revolution course in Washington and Li university

Slightly edited Google translation
The graduates can expect to get jobs in the State Department, USAID, or NED. For some BLM and Antifa might be an attractive career opportunity.
Sep 06, 2020 | aftershock.news

If after reading the headline you thought that is is one of the Russian universities got financing from NED and is preparing to teach our grant-eaters "the science of color revolutions", then you are mistaken.

It is the USA Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, which now offers 101 of color revolution preparation in a course called "Overthrow the State" for its American students and the subject of the course is the USA, not the xUSSR space.

According to the course description, it "puts every student at the head of a popular revolutionary movement that seeks to overthrow the current government and create a better society." Among questions discussed:

These are the questions that the University course answers. To get a diploma in the course "how to overthrow the state" you will need to pass 3 tests. It will be necessary to write your "Manifesto" after studying historical examples and revolutionary thought from Franz Fanon to Che Guevara, Mahatma Gandhi and representatives of the revolutionary movement. You will also have to "write a compelling essay about rewriting history" and a "white paper" (white paper is a kind of business plan, but it is written for an audience that is not related to business).

Univrsity of Washington and Lee is so progressive, that in July the faculty voted to remove the name of Robert Li from the name of the University.

[Aug 31, 2020] Economics Quotes

Aug 31, 2020 | quotes.cat-v.org

Just as a poetic discussion of the weather is not meteorology, so an issuance of moral pronouncements or political creeds about the economy is not economics. Economics is a study of cause-and-effect relationships in an economy.

-- Thomas Sowell


The first lesson of economics is scarcity: There is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.

-- Thomas Sowell


Economics is the painful elaboration of the obvious.


The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.

-- Friedrich von Hayek


I can't imagine economists admitting how little they actually know. If they admitted to themselves, it would hurt their ego. If they admitted to others, it would hurt their job prospects.

-- Joseph Mattes, Vienna (The Economist, letters December 04, 2010)


The use of mathematics has brought rigor to economics. Unfortunately, it has also brought mortis .

-- Attributed to Robert Heilbroner


A study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year.

-- Marty Allen


Economic statistics are like a bikini, what they reveal is important, what they conceal is vital

-- Attributed to Professor Sir Frank Holmes, Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand, 1967.


Doing econometrics is like trying to learn the laws of electricity by playing the radio.

-- Guy Orcutt


Economists

-- David Wildasin


"Murphys law of economic policy": Economists have the least influence on policy where they know the most and are most agreed; they have the most influence on policy where they know the least and disagree most vehemently.

-- Alan S. Blinder


An economist is someone who, when he finds something that works in practice, tries to make it work in theory.


The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.

-- Joan Violet Robinson


An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn't happen today.

-- Laurence J. Peter


Having a[n in] house economist became for many business people something like havinga resident astrologer for the royal court: I don't quite understand what this fellow is saying but there must be something to it.

-- Linden. (Jan. 11, 1993). Dreary Days in the Dismal Science. Forbes. Pp. 68-70.


Economics is the only field in which two people can get a Nobel Prize for saying exactly the opposite thing.


Economists do it with models.

-- Heard at the LSE


Bentley's second Law of Economics: The only thing more dangerous than an economist is an amateur economist!

Berta's Fundamental Law of Economic Rents.. "The only thing more dangerous than an amateur economist is a professional economist."


Definition: Policy Analyst is someone unethical enough to be a lawyer, impractical enough to be a theologian, and pedantic enough to be an economist.




Economists have forecasted 9 out of the last 5 recessions.


An econometrician and an astrologer are arguing about their subjects. The astrologer says, "Astrology is more scientific. My predictions come out right half the time. Yours can't even reach that proportion". The econometrician replies, "That's because of external shocks. Stars don't have those".


When an economist says the evidence is "mixed," he or she means that theory says one thing and data says the opposite.

-- Attributed to Richard Thaler, now at the Univ of Chicago


The last severe depression and banking crisis could not have been achieved by normal civil servants and politicians, it required economists involvement.


Taxes

State run lotteries: think of them as tax breaks for the intelligent.

-- Evan Leibovitch


Inflation

Inflation is the one form of taxation that can be imposed without legislation.

-- Milton Friedman


Having a little inflation is like being a little pregnant–inflation feeds on itself and quickly passes the "little" mark.

-- Dian Cohen


Trade and Trade Barriers

Tariffs, quotas and other import restrictions protect the business of the rich at the expense of high cost of living for the poor. Their intent is to deprive you of the right to choose, and to force you to buy the high-priced inferior products of politically favored companies.

-- Alan Burris, A Liberty Primer


Perhaps the removal of trade restrictions throughout the world would do more for the cause of universal peace than can any political union of peoples separated by trade barriers.

-- Frank Chodorov


When goods don't cross borders, soldiers will.

-- Fredric Bastiat, early French economist


The primary reason for a tariff is that it enables the exploitation of the domestic consumer by a process indistinguishable from sheer robbery.

-- Albert Jay Nock


Regulation

Regulation - which is based on force and fear - undermines the moral base of business dealings. It becomes cheaper to bribe a building inspector than to meet his standards of construction. A fly-by-night securities operator can quickly meet all the S.E.C. requirements, gain the inference of respectability, and proceed to fleece the public. In an unregulated economy, the operator would have had to spend a number of years in reputable dealings before he could earn a position of trust sufficient to induce a number of investors to place funds with him. Protection of the consumer by regulation is thus illusory.

-- Alan Greenspan


You fucking academic eggheads! You don't know shit. You can't deregulate this industry. You're going to wreck it. You don't know a goddamn thing!

-- Robert Crandall, boss of American Airlines, to an unnamed Senate lawyer in 1971


Government

The direct use of physical force is so poor a solution to the problem of limited resources that it is commonly employed only by small children and great nations.

-- David Friedman


Government Spending

See, when the Government spends money, it creates jobs; whereas when the money is left in the hands of Taxpayers, God only knows what they do with it. Bake it into pies, probably. Anything to avoid creating jobs.

-- Dave Barry


I don't think you can spend yourself rich.

-- George Humphrey


Capitalism and Free Markets

A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

-- Milton Friedman


The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.

-- Milton Friedman


The only thing worse than being exploited by capitalism is not being exploited by capitalism.

-- Joan Violet Robinson


Manufacturing and commercial monopolies owe their origin not to a tendency imminent in a capitalist economy but to governmental interventionist policy directed against free trade and laissez faire.

-- Ludwig Mises, "Socialism"


If an exchange between two parties is voluntary, it will not take place unless both believe they will benefit from it. Most economic fallacies derive from the neglect of this simple insight, from the tendency to assume that there is a fixed pie, that one party can only gain at the expense of another.

-- Milton Friedman


States with central-planning regimes [ ] do tend to consume much less energy (and much less of everything else) [ ] than do Americans. There is a word for that: poverty.

-- The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism


Central Banks

Any system which gives so much power and so much discretion to a few men, [so] that mistakes – excusable or not – can have such far reaching effects, is a bad system. It is a bad system to believers in freedom just because it gives a few men such power without any effective check by the body politic – this is the key political argument against an independent central bank To paraphrase Clemenceau: money is much too serious a matter to be left to the Central Bankers.

-- Milton Friedman


A central banker walks into a pizzeria to order a pizza.

When the pizza is done, he goes up to the counter get it. There a clerk asks him: "Should I cut it into six pieces or eight pieces?"

The central banker replies: "I'm feeling rather hungry right now. You'd better cut it into eight pieces."


Intellectual Property

For one thing, there are many "inventions" that are not patentable. The "inventor" of the supermarket, for example, conferred great benefits on his fellowmen for which he could not charge them. Insofar as the same kind of ability is required for the one kind of invention as for the other, the existence of patents tends to divert activity to patentable inventions.

-- Milton Friedman


Slavery

From the experience of all ages and nations, I believe, that the work done by freemen comes cheaper in the end than the work performed by slaves.

The work done by slaves, though it appears to cost only their maintenance, is in the end the dearest of any. A person who can acquire no property can have no other interest but to eat as much and to labour as little as possible.

Whatever work he does, beyond what is sufficient to purchase his own maintenance, can be squeezed out of him by violence only, and not by any interest of his own.

-- Adam Smith


Prohibition

It is because it's prohibited. See, if you look at the drug war from a purely economic point of view, the role of the government is to protect the drug cartel. That's literally true.

-- Milton Friedman


In the Long Run
Minimum Wage and Unemployment

The real minimum wage is zero: unemployment.

-- Thomas Sowell


All of the progress that the US has made over the last couple of centuries has come from unemployment. It has come from figuring out how to produce more goods with fewer workers, thereby releasing labor to be more productive in other areas. It has never come about through permanent unemployment, but temporary unemployment, in the process of shifting people from one area to another.

-- Milton Friedman

Misc

Talk is cheap. Supply exceeds Demand.


It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

-- Upton Sinclair


When you start paying people to be poor, you wind up with an awful lot of poor people.

-- Milton Friedman


of course the country could never listen to this guy .it just makes too much damn sense.

-- ryanx0 about Milton Friedman [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se_TJzB9-z0]


Every individual necessarily labors to render the annual revenue of society as great as he can. He generally neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. He intends only his own gain, and he is, in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was not part of his intention.

-- Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations



Back during the Solidarity days, I heard that the following joke was being told in Poland:

A man goes into the Bank of Gdansk to make a deposit. Since he has never kept money in a bank before, he is a little nervous. 
"What happens if the Bank of Gdansk should fail?" he asks. 
"Well, in that case your money would be insured by the Bank of Warsaw." 
"But, what if the Bank of Warsaw fails?" 
"Well, there'd be no problem, because the Bank of Warsaw is insured by the National Bank of Poland." 
"And if the National Bank of Poland fails?" 
"Then your money would be insured by the Bank of Moscow." 
"And what if the Bank of Moscow fails?" 
"Then your money would be insured by the Great Bank of the Soviet Union." 
"And if that bank fails?" 
"Well, in that case, you'd lose all your money. But, wouldn't it be worth it?"

All models are wrong but some are useful.

-- George Box


I'd rather be vaguely right than precisely wrong.

-- J.M.Keynes; Found in Forbes magazine 01/25/1999 issue. In the Numbers Game column by Bernard Cohen


Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.

For some TAC writers and Trump cultists, Trump could fart into a microphone and they'd think an angel just spoke. So why did Trump diddle around for three years if all he had to do was sign a E.O.?

The same could be said about Biden and certain Team D groupies. They insist that Biden is going to "fight for the little guy" even though he spent decades faithfully servicing the financial services industry, when he was not cheerleading for stupid wars.

[Aug 27, 2020] 2020 elections will be China against Russia

Aug 27, 2020 | www.theamericanconservative.com

Commenting on the spotlight that U.S. intelligence officials have placed on both countries' interference efforts (along with Iran's), Pelosi and Schiff declared that the analysis "provided a false sense of equivalence to the actions of foreign adversaries by listing three countries of unequal operational intent, actions, and capabilities together."

In particular, they charged, the actions of Kremlin-linked actors seeking to undermine Vice President Biden, and seeking to help President Trump" were glossed over.

Pelosi stated subsequently, "The Chinese, they said, prefer (presumptive Democratic nominee Joe) Biden -- we don't know that, but that's what they're saying, but they're not really getting involved in the presidential election."

... ... ...

Also alleging that Chinese agents are increasingly active on major social media platforms -- a study from research institute Freedom House, which reported that :

"[C]hinese state-affiliated trolls are apparently operating on [Twitter] in large numbers. In the hours and days after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of Hong Kong protesters in October 2019, the Wall Street Journal reported, nearly 170,000 tweets were directed at Morey by users who seemed to be based in China as part of a coordinated intimidation campaign. Meanwhile, there have been multiple suspected efforts by pro-Beijing trolls to manipulate the ranking of content on popular sources of information outside China, including Google's search engine Reddit,and YouTube."

Last year, a major Hoover Institution report issued especially disturbing findings about Beijing's efforts to influence the views (and therefore the votes) of Chinese Americans, including exploiting the potential hostage status of their relatives in China. According to the Hoover researchers:

"Among the Chinese American community, China has long sought to influence -- even silence -- voices critical of the PRC or supportive of Taiwan by dispatching personnel to the United States to pressure these individuals and while also pressuring their relatives in China. Beijing also views Chinese Americans as members of a worldwide Chinese diaspora that presumes them to retain not only an interest in the welfare of China but also a loosely defined cultural, and even political, allegiance to the so-called Motherland."

In addition: "In the American media, China has all but eliminated the plethora of independent Chinese-language media outlets that once served Chinese American communities. It has co-opted existing Chinese language outlets and established its own new outlets."

Operations aimed at Chinese Americans are anything but trivial politically. As of 2018, they represented nearly 2.6 million eligible U.S. voters, and they belonged to an Asian-American super-category that reflects the fastest growing racial and ethnic population of eligible voters in the country.

Most live in heavily Democratic states, like California, New York, and Massachusetts, but significant concentrations are also found in the battleground states where many of the 2016 presidential election margins were razor thin, and many of which look up for grabs this year, like Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

More broadly, according to the Hoover study:

"In American federal and state politics, China seeks to identify and cultivate rising politicians. Like many other countries, Chinese entities employ prominent lobbying and public relations firms and cooperate with influential civil society groups. These activities complement China's long-standing support of visits to China by members of Congress and their staffs. In some rare instances Beijing has used private citizens and companies to exploit loopholes in US regulations that prohibit direct foreign contributions to elections."

But even more thoroughly overlooked than these narrower forms of Chinese political interference is a broader, much more dangerous type of Chinese meddling that leaves Moscow's efforts in the dust. For example, U.S.-owned multinational companies, which have long profited at the expense of the domestic economy by offshoring production and jobs to China, have just as long carried Beijing's water in American politics through their massive contributions to U.S. political campaigns. The same goes for Wall Street, which hasn't sent many U.S. operations overseas, but which has long hungered for permission to do more business in the Chinese market.

These same big businesses continually and surreptitiously inject their views into American political debates by heavily financing leading think tanks -- which garb their special interest agendas in the raiment of objective scholarship.

Hollywood and the rest of the U.S. entertainment industry has become so determined to brown nose China in search of profits that it's made nearly routine rewriting and censoring material deemed offensive to China.

Hmm . Interesting.

If this article really does reflect the current social, political and economic state of North America (and it seems, generally speaking it dies, possible minor exaggerations notwithstanding)) it may give the rest of us a certain sense of smug superiority, went what we really ought to feel is a sense of trepidation, because right now America is litterally the Leader of the Western world. Dumb, corrupt, racist, indebted Americans lead and we follow !

American Culture is, arguably, by far its biggest export.
Corporatism. Militarism. Racism? (Maybe the Brits or Jews invented this one and exported it along with bygone colonialism.) Litigiousness. High level corruption and criminality within government. Indebtedness of the peasantry. Indoctrination for education. Violent crime. Homelessness. Poverty. U emoyment. Worstening health care. Media bias And on and on and on
Every single westernised nation, I would suggest, is witnessing raising levels of all of the above as global cabalists work their dark magic against us all.

Their masterstroke, "multicruralism", is new speak for mono-culturalism. And though right now the worst excesses of that monoculture can be witnessed in North America, none of us is immune, and none of us is in a possition to gloat!

So, what's the solution? Blame the blacks. Blame white? Blame "the jews". Blame China, Russia, North Korea? Blame Trump? Blame Tom, Dick, Harry. Blame this, that or the other mono-god religion, depending which mono-god cult you favour

Yeah, we can go on blaming whoever we like, even as "they" (read our own people!) come to haul us off to FEMA camps to save the world from "covid19-20-21-22-"

It's been a while since I looked, so I can't say off the top of my head how many unique visitors this website attracts every month, but I know it's a high number enough to light a hot fire under the seats of power in the US and keep it burning for a good long time.

But then what? How might you organise and administer the "functions of state" (let's face it, the overwhelming majority of people don'the even know what time of day it is without some authority figure to tell them) when the current regime has been deposed?

Might I suggest that the time for a Pow Wow of the indigenous tribes is at hand. (I'll give you a moment to stop laughing before I continue )
Yes, I am being serious! It's time for whitey, blacky, jewy, to shut the fuck up, stop imagining ourselves as in any way superiour, more deserving, better, wiser, smarter, kinder, and just shut up and listen for a change!

This world is a seriously fucked-up place because, somehow, by degrees, over generations of mongod-worship, we have handed our individual power/life-force over for others to weild against us, against our own best interests.

It's time we admitted that we and our ancestors have been wrong , and that we stood aside to give Pagans, Hethans and Savages a chance to reshape society in ways that may, might, possibly prove more beneficial for all!

Let's face it, they can't do any worse than the mono-god cultists have done in our name, by our power!

Anyone one who wishes to argue against this notion, I suggest you read the article again before commencing.

Best wishes,

Wall Street wants to lose their money in new ways. At least they get some novelty out of it.

[Aug 23, 2020] How neoliberals control the narrative: they like China and blame Russia

Aug 23, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

GlockenSpielPickleFund , 2 minutes ago

Some Americans continue to believe that when they go to the internet they will get a free flow of useful information that will guide them in making decisions or coming to conclusions about the state of the world... Google, for example, ranks the information that it displays so it can favor certain points of view and dismiss others. Generally speaking, progressive sites are favored and conservative sites are relegated to the bottom of the search with the expectation that they will not be visited.

The tactics are simple -- act like China (while effectively confiscating some of their tech firms, not that I'm too sympathetic), blame Russia, and continue to tell everyone they have "more information at their fingertips" than ever before. Most folks don't even realize that Google frames their entire online experience. Ergo, censoring the internet will go relatively unnoticed by the bulk of 'Mericans as long as the special trifle (web comics, minions, gifs, Amazon, and Netflix) stays intact.

... ... ...

If some people can't go as Bugs Bunny, then nobody can't go as anything. Fair is fair. So if you little sister goes as Aunt Jemima that makes pancakes, the BLM bandits will try to lynch her.

I reckon black folks ought to be a little quieter. Since they didn't invent writing, or reading, or 'rithmetic or electricity or clothes or pretty much anything, then any time they use them things they're doing Cultural Appropriation. It's just common sense. Of course, I guess a Chinaman could say whites do it too when they use paper and gunpowder, without the which we couldn't have bombs and rockets and federal forms nine pages long that no one since Adam can figure out.

Now, what I think is, charging blacks and injuns and all for every white invention they use, one at a time would be a motimgator long job and use more paper than eating a McDonald's hamburger. It could lead to enough of what that Wall Street newspaper calls cross licensing, Mr. McWilliams said, and he knows everything, to keep a whole rat pack of lawyers in business forever instead of drowning them, that would be better.

I mean, you could charge a nickel every time Lateesha or Deewan or Lasagna read a book, which might bring in twelve dollars a year, or used a Smith and Wesson, for whole boxcars of dollars. Probably the easy thing would be to rent the whole damn civilization with only one license, like driving a car.

I reckon we'd haul in enough money to buy enough rockets to blow up a thousand weddings and little children in Afghanistan and Eye-ran and maybe some kindergartner kids in Venezuela, wherever that is. Then they'd all have American values and love us.

But we got other news to gnaw on. I keep reading about this gal Rachel Tension and how she's causing all kinds of bile along with Oprah. I don't know about Rachel but Oprah's gone all skinny on us and I reckon it makes her want to make more fuss about whatever she's thinking about. Oprah used to be all porked up and looked like three hundred pounds of fatback with legs and if you'd had a oil well you wanted to shut down you could have used her for a plug. I hear there's less Oprah now, though. Which is about how much I can use.

Anyhow, she's running on these days about how white people is criminals and brutes and they need to get in touch with what they're feeling, that might mean their girlfriend or I don't know what, but she don't like them. White people, I mean. Well, I guess. But I figure when she's yowling into a microphone that probably Abraham Lincoln or Moses or somebody invented, it's that Cultural Appropriation again and she owes money. I mean, without that microphone shed have to go back to smoke signals or drums.

Anyway, women are taking over everything, most of them crazy. Along with Rachel Tension and Oprah, we've got that Clinton woman that's even older than Ann Coulter and probably sleeps all day in some cave, hanging by her toes, and Elizabeth Warren, that used to be a Injun but cured it with a shot of DNA. And now we've got Joe Biden, who ain't nothing but a titless Hillary on days when he can remember who he is, and pretty much nothing at all the rest of the time. Which might be a good reason to vote for him. We've had a long string of Presidents who did know who they were, and it ain't been real satisfactory.

Finally the world' s gone soft in the head, like Aunt Minnie that granddad used to keep in the attic. I just saw where Walt Disney, that I thought was dead but anyway, he's going to make a movie about Peter Pan and he want's Mike Tyson to be Tinker Belle. She´s kind of like a lightening bug in a little green dress and throws sparks everywhere. Now if I remember right, Tyson weighs about two-forty buck nekkid and holding a helium balloon so it's hard to imagine him twinkling around in the air and flashing like a fifty cent flashlight with a loose switch, but I don't know much about movies. Anyway there was this woman, I think her name was Lupita Marimacha or anyway some Meskin thing, that talked for Mr. Disney, that I thought was dead. She said these times are progressive, which I think means soft in the head, and we can't be heteronormative or chromapejorative and we had to be gender fluid. I saw it in the newspaper or I couldn't spell it. I wasn't sure what kind of gender fluid she meant but I knew I didn't want to think about it. I guess it means we´ll have to watch Mike Tyson flying around in some kind of girly clothes, which is all right on a girl but I worry about them on Mike, and maybe it worries him too.

Very telling that ZH editors don't consider this newsworthy: key findings of the Republican led Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding Russia's 2016 election interference.

Manafort and Kilimnik talked almost daily during the campaign. They communicated through encrypted technologies set to automatically erase their correspondence; they spoke using code words and shared access to an email account. It's worth pausing on these facts: The chairman of the Trump campaign was in daily contact with a Russian agent, constantly sharing confidential information with him.

It did not find evidence that the Ukrainian government meddled in the 2016 election, as Trump alleged. "The Committee's efforts focused on investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. However, during the course of the investigation, the Committee identified no reliable evidence that the Ukrainian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. election."

"Taken as a whole, Manafort's high-level access and willingness to share information with individuals closely affiliated with the Russian intelligence services, particularly [Konstantin] Kilimnik and associates of Oleg Deripaska, represented a grave counterintelligence threat," the report said.

Kilimnik "almost certainly helped arrange some of the first public messaging that Ukraine had interfered in the U.S. election."

Roger Stone was in communications with both WikiLeaks and the Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 during the election; according to the Mueller report, Guccifer 2.0 was a conduit set up by Russian military intelligence to anonymously funnel stolen information to WikiLeaks.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation found "significant evidence to suggest that, in the summer of 2016, WikiLeaks was knowingly collaborating with Russian government officials," the report said.

The FBI gave "unjustified credence" to the so-called Steele dossier, an explosive collections of uncorroborated memos alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials, the report said. The FBI did not take the "necessary steps to validate assumptions about Steele's credibility" before relying on the dossier to seek renewals of a surveillance warrant targeting the former Trump campaign aide, the report said.

It's true. Knowledge of evidence based reality is a threat to US National Security.

Their suggestion that Russia is the sole source of knowledge of evidence based reality, though flattering to Russia, merely illustrates an entertaining cartoon mindset.

[Aug 19, 2020] Colin Powell will be a featured speaker at the Democratic National Convention tonight.

Aug 19, 2020 | www.moonofalabama.org

Thanks for the laugh, Bernhard.

CBC radio today had a sound bite from former Secretary of State Colin Powell, saying something like "I grew up in the South Bronx and Joseph Biden grew up in Scranton, where his parents gave him the same values."

So Powell is all in for Biden, not surprising since they are both members of the Democratic Party.

Great picture too, I remember all too well the absolute absurdity of the stunts and media events following the September 11, 2001 thing. People I know were there in downtown NYC, unfortunately my friend and colleague was in one of the towers and did not make it out, leaving her husband and two children behind.

The following years were only made tolerable by David Rees's comics as he lampooned, amongst many other horrors, the dropping of aid packages, yellow, and cluster bombs, also yellow, on Afghanistan. Here's a link to Get Your War On , his compilation of those comics.

Those 2 years in New York and I suppose the rest of the world opened our eyes to the reality of what the United States of America was capable of.

Powell with his vial of "anthrax" at the United Nations was but one example of the avalanche of propaganda that ensued.

To keep this post short I'll simply state that the current mediated world did not create itself.

Notable quotes:

Aug 18, 2020 | www.rt.com

If wokeness is going to survive, the scourge of actors portraying characters that are in any way different from themselves must end now.

I consider myself a devout crusader for the Church of Wokeness, a brave Knight of the Woke Table if you will.

... The newest and most heinous of injustices that I unearthed occurred the other day, and was so horrifying it literally left me shaking.

... The injustice of which I speak is that Netflix just announced that on its hit show The Crown , Princess Diana – the most iconic of British Royals, will be played by Elizabeth Debicki who is gasp Australian!

...

I wish there was a woke time machine so we could see who Octavia Spencer would cast instead of Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot and Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio in What's Eating Gilbert Grape .

Those able-bodied bastards are acting abominations. Their crimes are almost as bad as cis-gendered actors playing trans characters.

... Of course, even if an actor is the same race or ethnicity as a character, they aren't safe from the righteous sword of wokeness. ... To avoid this woke backlash and the cancel culture mob, white actresses Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell quit their roles voicing black characters on cartoons.

... we could be one step closer to eradicating the art of acting and finally living in the glorious utopia of talentlessness we woke are obviously so desperate to manifest.

The Coca-Cola Company has always been involved in espionage for the US military and the State Department. [1] Oddly, neither the Coca-Cola company website nor Google have any knowledge of this, and the State Department had no one available to discuss this with me. Since at least the 1940s, when the company established bottling plants in a new country, OSS or CIA spies were automatically sent in as part of the staff. It wasn't even much of a secret: when the US Senate held their famous Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, the link between the CIA and Coca-Cola was fully exposed.

The only thing provoking Trump is the unending criminal attacks to remove him.

Most people can deal with competition until it becomes obvious the the game is rigged. Once rigging is accepted, most will still try to figure a way to work within those biased rules even when it is apparent that they are designed to your disadvantage..

But when the rigging is not for simple advantage but for your elimination, your demise, then you've got to get out.

Trump can't get out. Once he loses the protection of his office, they will do all in their power to destroy him, his family and friends and ANYONE who openly supported him.

Keep that in mind, because there's lots of deplorables out there who have been very open in his support.

Trump MUST win reelection to simply survive. He's cornered now and will be making lots of compromises. But he may also get dirty...dirty like a Democrat.

And given our weak *** support, our hiding I fear while complaining of his failures, he may just risk igniting the fires of hell that progressives have been threatening him with.

"Pardoned by George H.W.

This is warped bullcrap. Iran was at war with Iraq.

The real purpose of selling weapon shipments to Iran then were as an inducement for Iran to free western hostages being held in Lebanon, during the whole of the 1980s by Iranian backed "paramilitary groups".

The funds from those weapon sales were eventually used in other operations in central America, but that is not why it was done.

Read Colonel Oliver North's account of what occurred, and why it was done.

BTW, the CONTRAS were engaging large numbers of hard-core communist death-squads in the country at that time, who were supported by Castro in Havana and Moscow. It was absolutely the right thing to do to fund a military action to find and eliminate those communist death-squads who were murdering people all over the country, they particularly loved to murder Catholic Priests and Nuns at the time, who dared to speak out against the foreign-backed communist murder-squads, who were murdering local people in very large numbers to force them all to shut up and not resist a communist take over. The same sorts of things were occurring in El Salvador and Honduras.

Understand the following like you have understood nothing else before: (Maher and Cleese obviously had not at the time of this interview.)

'Political Correctness' is now a construct utilised almost exclusively to trivialise and dismiss anything that seeks to redress injustice, unfairness and the unequal distribution of wealth, power, and privilege.

Whatever the issue it will be dismissed as being only 'political correctness' and even common decency of courtesy are disparaged as 'political correctness gone mad' . It has also become at the same time a 'weasel' term used by cowards and bullies to avoid having to openly state that the have no care for the rights, concerns, feelings and well-being of others.

Look for how and by whom 'political correctness' is currently used and you will see what Maher, Cleese and posters commenting on this clip hve not and be less likely to be misled and duped.

Cleese's logic here is irrefutable; and really shines a light on the incredible double standards that are prevalent in contemporary society. It's rewarding to know; watching this when he speaks about Jesus that there are religious academics, and representatives that see the wise satirical insight of; Life of Brian.

Political correctness and Social Justice isn't about protecting minorities, or protecting the LGTBQ community etc, its about control and censoring through bullying. its about telling you how to think, and what you can say. Our Great Grandparents died to protect our right to think and speak freely, and to tell me how to think and speak, you are literally pissing on the graves of the people who died to protect that right, and THAT offends me.

It seems to me thar racial tensions in particular or worse now than they Were before they shoved this whole political correctness thing down our gullets. And that statement goes back to before the Minneapolis police killed a man for using a counterfeit $20 bill(being black). Forcing political correctness on people doesn't work. You're not changing peoples ideas you're just suppressing them. When you suppress a persons ideas those ideas fester. When suppressed ideas fester they build up pressure and eventually explode. Instead of telling people what they can't say or do, we need to re-educate our people to except those that are different. Humor is a very good way of getting people to see how ignorant their ideas are.

The results are similar across races, with 88 percent of white Americans, 83 percent of Hispanic Americans, and 72 percent of Asian-Americans all saying the same thing.

The poll also confirmed that black Americans are more likely to see police presence in their communities, with 73 percent of respondents answering that they notice cops in their neighborhoods "sometimes" or "very often." That's compared to 65 percent of non-black respondents.

Suspecting that neither Ukrainians nor people elsewhere were being given an accurate portrayal of what has been going on in Kyiv, I felt I had no choice but to travel there and offer an honest portrait of Maidan as I saw it.

The physical layout of Maidan is both impressive and inspiring. Piles of sandbags, tires, household furniture and concrete paving blocks form the barricades that guard the entrances to the square. Inside are countless tents and makeshift shelters which people have occupied for nearly four months now. Graffiti, fliers and stickers, written in Ukrainian, Russian and English, cover any vacant space on walls; dozens of Ukrainian flags flap in the wind And there's no way you can miss the flowers.

Piles upon piles of flowers, spread all over Maidan, commemorate those who lost their lives there. Scattered among the flowers you can find photographs of Maidan's lost 'Heavenly Hundred', with a constant flow of family members, friends and fellow countrymen quietly mourning nearby.

"If I don't see you giving a lackluster batter the strength to hit a home run, I'm shipping your ass out," said the Lord Our Savior, clarifying that MLB players experiencing family strife, which could be solved with a World Series win, should receive priority status. "I understand some of you are new here and want to help poor and sick people, but you need to understand that we focus on scrappy ball clubs. That's the point of religion. Sure, every now and then I'll grant a dying child's wish, but that's for Me to worry about. You should spend most of your day distracting elite baseball teams, so tenacious underdogs can score off errors."

STANFORD, CA -- In a survey of how the nation's local officials have responded to the pandemic in the absence of a consistent federal approach, Stanford University researchers confirmed Monday that more cities have begun offering drive-thru Covid-19 injection sites to put citizens out of their misery. "By injecting people with SARS-CoV-2, these pop-up locations provide an effective way to escape the endless anguish, gloom, and isolation this virus has inflicted upon us -- and all from the convenience of one's car," said report co-author Sara Pappas, explaining that a certain percentage of those receiving the injection inevitably die, but whether through death or immunity, all those infected receive sweet release from an untenable situation they just can't take anymore. "Individuals who have experienced feelings of hopelessness or despair in recent months may wish to seek out one of these drive-up facilities. Restaurant and service workers who interact with the public on a regular basis can generally receive their injections for free, and those with health insurance are covered as well, with most insurers paying the full cost of the injection and up to 10% of any subsequent hospitalizations." Pappas went on to state that if only 80 to 90% of Americans would visit these Covid-19 injection sites, the pandemic would be over in weeks.

Feelings don't care about facts. The mass hysteria that's gripped the Western world after the death of George Floyd can't be explained in rational terms

... the facts are almost irrelevant. We're dealing with faith , religious ecstasy. We're in the midst of BLMania.

Collective frenzies aren't new. Almost every American knows about the Salem witch trials, during which Christians claimed they saw demons and devils.

Ann Coulter analyzed mobs in her 2011 book Demonic . She heavily cited Gustave Le Bon's famous 1895 book The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind . Miss Coulter said a mob is "an irrational, childlike, often violent organism that derives its energy from the group" and is "intoxicated by messianic goals."

This new faith even has holy sites and sacred rites. The site of George Floyd's killing is now a shrine , with white activists declaring it "holy ground." According to journalist Michael Tracey , the unwashed police generally do not enter this sanctum sanctorum .

What can we call this death-cult? Some leftists, including Ignatiev, called for "abolishing" the white race.

The creed's violence, militancy, and destructiveness lead me to call it Eradicationism. Like some Christian sects, whites who embrace it want collectively to abandon the world, if not through suicide then by failing to reproduce. Instead of making the world better "for ourselves and our posterity," they will expunge their blood guilt by ending their line. White Saviors share a curious mix of self-hatred and self-exaltation, something we see when white protesters post themselves indulging in BLMania online.

Worse, because this creed is impervious to truth, it must always seek new scapegoats (or devils) for egalitarianism's continuing failure. Despite the constant funding, programs, and repression, equality never arrives.

Black Lives Matter is more sacred than the American flag or Christ. Federal agents , police , military , athletes , politicians , and many others all genuflect before BLM. Many would never bow before God. This new, powerful faith even has a liturgical calendar and a hymn built on a sacred myth.

This is the thinking of a fanatic religious sect, like the one Jim Jones led . "We were too good for this world," Jones said before the infamous mass suicide.

This ends in denying truth itself. Claire Lehmann found a slide at an education conference in Washington that
