There are two bits of news from today that are not Internet gossip or conspiracy theory.
I have a friend who is an attorney who has two new clients today. Both had their pictures taken in Washington DC on January 6, not at the Capitol building, but at the demonstration. Both were identified from those photos on the Internet and both have been accused of domestic terrorism by the FBI.
(1) An attorney and member of the California State Bar – has been notified they are going to be dis-barred.
(2) A flight attendant with Southwest Airlines was fired from his job. As a common carrier, they can’t have a terrorist as an employee. He was photographed once, at the Washington Monument.
So it’s begun and there is no telling where it will end. In China, if you fall out of favor, you’re denied the right to work and you are denied the right to live in a city. So you’re made homeless. They call it the floating population.
Apparently the First Amendment has been suspended de facto and there is no more freedom of assembly.
This blog’s days are numbered. Maybe we’ll survive through February?
Now, on with the blog.
The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years despite not having brains gives hope to many people.
CIA Touts Woke Creds
This from Zero Hedge. The truth is that the CIA started having “tranny week” and other woke celebratory events at headquarters two decades ago. A (white) lady I am acquainted with, used to wear a Malcolm X baseball cap around all of the time back at the turn of the millennium just to show how woke she was. And yes, she was a 20 year case officer, not an analyst or a janitor or a clerk.
The report of a “new logo” being used as a recruiting tool, is emblematic of how stupid things are getting. But there is a lot of stupid going around.
Chalk up a big Win!
It turns out that buying Biden (and friends) was a great investment. Who would have thought? A creepy, old, walking corpse.
But really all the oligarchs need is somebody who will read from the teleprompter and sign where they need the signature to make whatever legal.
In that regard, they may be disappointed because the corpse often just rattles on about how he was in jail with Nelson Mandella or how he walked with MLK in Selma or how he won the Medal of Honor in Afghanistan or how he kicked Corn Pop’s ass back in 1948 or how he doesn’t work for us. Yes, the corpse has a limited value to the oligarchs (multi-billion types, tech moguls, Wall St. mandarins) who call the shots now, but how long will that last?
I don’t suggest that the corpse won’t be president, I simply ask you what “president” means. Maybe they give him the launch codes and maybe they don’t. Maybe the briefcase (the football) is as empty as his vacuous brain?
In the Event that You Harbored Doubts
Twitter saw its shares drop by 12 per cent today. The tech giant lost $5 billion on the first day of trading after it permanently suspended President Trump. If people stop using Twitter, it will cease to exist. And maybe that’s for the best.
Tech Moguls can ban everyone from the use of their platforms, but that’s a lot like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
