  1. https://brownvalleyobserver.com/2020/07/03/ghislaine-maxwell-has-tested-positive-for-covid-19-in-new-hampshire-jail-doj-reports/amp/?__twitter_impression=true update - note that this has been tagged as fake news.
  2. OK - but "you falsely claimed to have attended the live TAMI show" will be my go-to retort for the next while should you lecture me yet again re: US politics.
  3. wow, Kirk, you were at the TAMI show. I saw the film of it back in the early '80s and long have had the DVD. such a great lineup - also, trivia, the actress Teri Garr was one of the background dancers. if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, props to Mick Jagger to borrow from the best. He incorporated James Brown's moves into his stage manner, just as he had incorporated Little Richard's yelps. I'm not sure the Stones' postponed tour will ever happen due to the persistence of the virus. The NBA and MLB players are having issues in Florida - like testing negative before travelling there and then positive six days later despite being in a "bubble".
  4. If you haven't noticed, the track record of US intelligence - most particularly anonymous officials speaking to the legacy media - for truthful and verifiable information, most especially since the end of the Cold War, has been rather abysmal. Let's see: atrocities in Yugoslavia, WMD in Iraq, Ghaddaffi engaged in genocide, Assad gassing his own people, Russia hacked the election, Russia poisoned the Skripals, etc etc. All were proven as utterly false or remain entirely evidence-free. As well, John McCain was a vicious war-monger who was photographed several times meeting with al-Qaeda leadership planning the destruction of a secular state in the Middle East. John Bolton is also a vicious war-monger and many of the claims in his lauded new book are proving to be either false or exaggerated. signed The Reality Based Community
  5. Now that it looks like Flynn prosecution/sentencing is done with, we may be getting closer to some indication on what it was exactly about him that the Obama people were so determined to prevent. Unless there is something still in the shadows, it appears to boil down to a desire to prevent cooperation with the Russians in finally flushing all the UN-designated terrorist jihadist types out of Syria and allowing that country to rebuild. As it stands, the Americans running Syria policy have maintained continuity with Obama era and have succeeded in preventing any cooperation, succeeded in a rough partition of the country, and are on record as boasting of their intentions of keeping Syria a shattered basket-case (with sanctions) and providing a "quagmire" for the Russians. Real humanitarians. It actually is a criminal foreign policy. The MSM commentariat continues to posit that the dismissal of the charges is outrageous, and continue a steadfast refusal to consider the scope of the exculpatory evidence which has been unearthed since a prosecutor was assigned to look into the case. They have never acknowledged that Flynn's troubles began with an entirely bogus story promoted by Stefan Halper - who also played an undercover, if not sinister, role with Carter Page and Papadopoulos.
  6. this is the twitter thread I saw. the clarification that the overcapacity is several days away is just below the embed (i.e. click on it as a link)
  7. Ron - I have read the Texas medical Center in Houston is now predicting they may reach overcapacity in about four days. Are people talking about this, or are your local officials extending guidance and cautions?
  8. Jeff Morley on the NY Times Dylan interview: “Bob Dylan Has a Lot on His Mind,” the New York Times reported on June 12. That’s for sure. In late March, as the COVID-19 pandemic shut down America, the 79 year old singer-songwriter released“Murder Most Foul,” an epic, 17-minute song-poem about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Since “Who killed JFK?” is one of the central questions of American history, you might think that the Times interviewer, historian Douglas Brinkley would ask the Nobel laureate about how he came to compose his dark and brooding take on November 22, 1963. You might think Brinkley, a CNN commentator, would ask Dylan why he decided to release the song as the country and the world reeled from a plague. You might think wrong. Brinkley asked Dylan four questions about “Murder Most Foul,” none of which concerned Dylan’s thoughts about how and why the liberal president was shot dead in broad daylight, and no one was ever brought to justice for the crime. https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/06/19/dylan-does-have-a-lot-on-his-mind-but-the-nyt-didnt-want-to-talk-about-it/
  9. Capitol Hill in Seattle, which is directly adjacent to the downtown, has always had a distinct bohemian vibe. There was a neighbourhood push-back against the police in 1999, when the riot squads directed WTO protesters across the bridge (over the I-5) into the district. People were very angry at the sudden presence of armoured police with batons and tear gas. They are not inclined to see the riot police as their friends. I don’t believe anyone in Seattle really considers an “autonomous zone” as anything but an overt description of the characteristics of the district, if somewhat theatrical. The response to the CHAZ, by Trump and right-wingers represented by Fox News, is deliberately hysterical and over-stated. If there is a police/national guard over-reaction, it will serve only their immediate political interests and could lead to a wave of new tension across the country.
  10. Twitter thread compiling lapses of police judgment. There's a lot. https://twitter.com/search?q=greg doucette&src=typed_query
  11. More information and a second video angle: https://www.crimeonline.com/2020/06/05/simply-following-orders-57-members-of-buffalo-police-tactical-team-resign-from-unit-after-2-are-suspended-for-shoving-protester-and-leaving-him-bleeding-on-the-ground/ "The 57 officers have resigned only from the tactical unit and not the police force. They did so after the union said it would not pay legal fees to defend officers who run afoul of prosecutors during the protests."
  12. I'm not sure that Orson Welles would have knowingly participated in a Rockefeller Foundation psyop. As far as I know, the format of the show was developed by Welles, simply transposing the fictional scenario by using reporting and news gathering techniques then common to radio broadcasting. Few of the freaked-out listeners bothered to check other stations to confirm the scale of the unprecedented alien attack. I have no doubt that the response to Welles' program attracted the interest of numerous elite organizations interested in manipulating the masses, just as Hitler's effective broadcasting did.
  13. Anecdotally, in the mid-90s I’d enjoy listening occasionally to the Art Bell radio program, not necessarily because I thought the guests and info were on the level but because it was consistently entertaining and seemed to embody a distinct end-of-the-century loopiness. During UFO-themed episodes, listeners often reported seeing small minivan-sized triangular craft which flew in distinct zig-zag patterns and could hover. In September 1996 I happened to be driving outside of Spokane, Washington and almost veered off the road at the sight of a small minivan-sized triangular craft which flew low in zig-zagging patterns in the farmer’s field to our left. The Spokane air show was scheduled at that time, and earlier several unusual aircraft had flown over the highway. I presumed the triangular craft was some sort of experimental plane, likely military, and it was part of the Air Show (it may well have been an early version of what became the drone network). Since that morning I have generally concluded that most of the “UFO phenomenon” was a cover story for experimental military aircraft.
  14. Rapid ascension to maximum response. How do Americans respond to hearing their neighborhoods described as "battle spaces"? “I think the sooner that you mass and dominate the battlespace, the quicker this dissipates and we can get back to the right normal,” Esper said..." https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2020/06/01/secdef-encourages-governors-to-dominate-the-battlespace-to-put-down-nationwide-protests/ Didn't Nixon once contemplate "dominating" the antiwar protests and was told there weren't enough troops?
  15. The choice of garb is interesting, as it directly invokes the so-called "pro-democracy" protesters in Hong Kong. His method of using the umbrella as the instrument of destruction also invokes the HK protesters. Note that leaders of the HK movement were in USA at least three times last year - not to meet with comrades at BLM, or what's left of Occupy. They met with figures like Pompeo, Pence, and Congressmen Cotton and Rubio. The HK "pro-democracy" movement also adopted imagery associated with the alt-right, such as Pepe Le Frog, and sponsored screenings of pro-fascist documentaries such as "Winter On Fire" about the Ukraine coup. Their "anthem" Glory To Hong Kong is based on the "Glory to Ukraine" chant identified with Banderist militias. It would be interesting to hear a bit more of Pederson's rationales, but I don't think there will be much interest in Minnesota security circles to pin him down on this. They will pretend the filmed umbrella man can't be identified.
