Netflix has a shocking and engrossing 10-hour documentary out called “Making a Murderer.” It has gotten quite a reaction from viewers because to many, if not most (including me), it shows how a man, Steven Avery, was wrongfully convicted of serious crimes not once but twice. His nephew, Brendan Dassey, was also convicted for involvement.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC
Last week I predicted Saudi marionettes, much like the Turks, would continue to do stupid things and the western Zio media would throw them under the bus. Like clockwork, over the weekend the Saudis beheaded a record number of people, including a leading Shiite cleric.
Randi Zuckerberg is Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister. They make no bones about their views on anonymity. They want it gone. Zuckerberg does a poor job playing the role of protector of free speech as well. In September, an open mic conversation between Facebook’s Zuckerberg and Germany’s President Angela Merkel revealed how the CEO could ban user posts critical of Merkel’s immigration policy.
The documentary “Hacking Democracy” follows activists Bev Harris and Kathleen Wynne, who later become the director and associate director of nonprofit election watchdog group Black Box Voting, as they attempt to discover the extent to which it would be possible to alter results on the electronic voting machines of Diebold Election Systems, Inc.
The Chinese opium trade of the 19th Century was instrumental to the early incarnation of the global Crime Syndicate and put it into high gear. It was just the right degree of exploitative criminality, deep-state intelligence and enormous looting to launch, enrich and link the progenitors of today’s system.
I’m not generally a big believer in condemning people for the sins of their forefathers or for their family background, provided it’s not too outlandish. However, when it comes to world leaders born of wealth or privilege, it’s worthwhile to pause and evaluate their history. Doing so provides insight into their character, culture and connections, which in turn speaks to their ability to lead and their loyalties.
When you stumble across a sordid history of a leader whose family fortune was made in the China opium trade and who has reinvented their ethnic backstory for the purpose of political favor, then it’s time to throw a red flag and cry foul. And it’s time to throw a flag on U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry.
Donald Trump’s position on a moratorium on Muslims entering the U.S. is so extreme that others can take slightly less over-the-top Zio positions and look reasonable. Even Darth Vader Dick Cheney can now say “this goes too far” — just leave it at killing Muslims.
For our purposes, there is little point in focusing on the completely made-up U.S. economic reports. We already know that a state of extreme recession is unfolding. Typical is this remark by Edward Yruma, managing director at KeyBanc Capital Markets, who was at the Mall of America on Black Friday. He said,“It doesn’t look much busier than an average Saturday morning.” Now the official reports are in: Sales are down 10% from last year.
The Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting is a C-team hoax. Won’t waste much time here, and shall dispatch this one quickly.
It is freezing out so they roll out one of the victims. Per usual, the photo doesn’t reveal much, expect — hum, wait just a minute. Why did they strip off his clothes? Not even a blanket? Are they trying to give him hypothermia? Put a wounded man out in the cold? The weather was reported that day and hour at -8 celesus with a 20 km wind and light snow. That’s a 5 degree F chill factor.
And instead of ambulances, they take the injured away in a SWAT vehicle? What knuckleheads writes or falls for these scripts?
