Your daily Greenwald, chickens coming home to roost edition:




A Chinese airline has denied rumors that its flight attendants were filmed engaging in a hotel room orgy after footage was posted on social media last week.

On Wednesday, a series of videos emerged on Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging platform, which showed at least six nude men and women dancing, grinding and laughing in a room.

The video quickly went viral, and soon after, rumors emerged that the orgy occurred in Madrid and the people involved were flight attendants for China Eastern Airlines or its subsidiary, Shanghai Airlines, the Shanghaiist reported.

In a document that was allegedly compiled by the airline, the company denied that their employees were the people featured in the video, suggested it was filmed in Africa and said that the people who created it deliberately did so to damage their reputation.



Someday the children not even born yet will ask us what it was like to have a bit of fun without some idiot rushing to show your business to tens of millions on social media and only then will the great pushback against technology begin...

Your daily Greenwald, strawman edition:


Note that only the Republicans who are opposed to Trump are evil and untrustworthy... Everyone else gets a pass.

Faux Newz is cancer...


Is this real or is it evil twisted witchcraft?

Really? *Another* Lufthansa Heist?

Brazilian gang loots $5 million in an airport heist worthy of Ocean’s Eleven

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Five gang members wielding rifles infiltrated an international airport in Brazil on Sunday and carried out a carefully choreographed heist worthy of the big screen.

Police said the gang, using cars that were painted to resemble airport security, tore past two gates and drove into the cargo section of Viracopos Airport, 60 miles outside Sao Paulo. They attacked two security guards and stuffed them into a van, then invaded the tarmac and drove up to a parked Lufthansa plane just as employees were transferring bags of cash into an armored vehicle. The group drove out of the airport with $5 million in cash before police arrived. Nobody was arrested.

The heist is yet another part of a crime wave that has made transporting goods in Brazil particularly dangerous. A record 10,500 cargo thefts were registered in 2017 in Sao Paulo, according to Sao Paulo state figures state. In February, police busted a cargo-looting ring that was stashing stolen trucks and merchandise at a rest stop right outside Sao Paulo. In Rio de Janeiro, some areas are so dangerous for truckers that the post office has halted deliveries in nearly half the city.

Transporting merchandise on Brazilian roads became so treacherous that many companies opted to send shipments by plane. Located about an hour from Sao Paulo’s city center, the Viracopos Airport has taken on more valuable shipments, and the volume of goods passing through the airport rose by 20 percent in 2017. It is now responsible for the most cargo traffic in Brazil.


MEANWHILE, in the Netherlands...



Don't be this girl.... PLEASE?


Inside a school shooters mind: A plot to kill 50 or 60. If I get lucky maybe 150.'

Six days before he allegedly opened fire on an elementary school playground, the eighth-grader returned to his Instagram group chat to fixate, yet again, on his most intense interests: guns and bombs and the mass murder of children.

“My plan,” wrote Jesse Osborne, who had turned 14 three weeks earlier, “is shooting my dad getting his keys getting in his truck, driving to the elementary school 4 mins away, once there gear up, shoot out the bottom school class room windows, enter the building, shoot the first class which will be the 2d grade, grab teachers keys so I don’t have to hasle to get through any doors.”

He had been researching other school shooters for months and, determined to outdo them, learned exactly how many people they’d murdered: 13 at Columbine High; 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary; 32 at Virginia Tech.

On Valentine’s Day, at the same time police say another angry teen, Nikolas Cruz, slaughtered 17 people at a Parkland, Fla., high school with a semiautomatic AR-15, Jesse was sitting in a South Carolina courtroom, waiting to find out whether he would be tried as an adult for a 2016 rampage that left his father and a 6-year-old dead.
