Hmmm. Page 608 of "Rise and Kill First" by Ronen Bergman

details Mossad's plans to take out Iranian nuclear scientists. They did assassinate a number of them and the page closes by explaining that Fakhrizadeh was the scientist they were most worried about. Iran placed massive security around him. Meir Dagan was the brains behind the plan to assassinate the Iranian nuclear scientists. Dagan died in March 2016.

That's near the end of the book.

(It's a really good book, by the way)

I was sure it was Photoshopped too. Trump's thing is that he

always wants to project power, so I can't get over the fact that he did this.

His heroes--Bolsonaro, Duterte, Erdogan and Putin--wouldn't be caught dead in a photo op like that. It's inconceivable. They would probably execute any underling who suggested such a thing.

Disastrous. Who thought of this?

The first time I saw this I thought it was photoshopped by some clever anti-Trumper.

It's on the same level with the baby trump blimp.

Where are Spanky and Alfalfa?

Seriously, read or show her this:

Bob Woodward: (00:00)
And so, what was President Xi saying yesterday?

Donald Trump: (00:05)
Oh, we were talking mostly about the virus, and I think heís going to have it in good shape. But itís a very tricky situation.

Bob Woodward: (00:14)
Indeed, it is.

Donald Trump: (00:16)
It goes through air, Bob. Thatís always tougher than the touch. The touch, you donít have to touch things, right? But the air, you just breathe the air and thatís how itís passed. And so thatís a very tricky one. Thatís a very delicate one. Itís also more deadly than even your strenuous flus. People donít realize, we lose 25,000, 30,000 people a year here. Who would ever think that, right?

Bob Woodward: (00:41)
I know. Itís much forgotten.

Donald Trump: (00:42)
Itís pretty amazing. And then I said, ďWell, is that the same thing?Ē

Bob Woodward: (00:46)
What are you able to do for-

Donald Trump: (00:47)
This is more deadly. This is 5% versus 1%, and less than 1%. So this is deadly stuff.

Does she know about that taped Feb. 7 conversation between Trump and Bob Woodward

in which Trump warns Woodward that the virus is airborne and five times more lethal than the flu?

Maybe she'd believe it if it came from the president's mouth.

I love that quote. I think what he was getting at...

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro


I think what he was getting at is that anxiety and being backed into a corner stimulates survival instincts, and anger coupled with creativity that moves people who otherwise not do much to take action.

Stress triggers ingenuity.

But others will certainly have different interpretations.

I know that I got pushed by this administration into dropping almost every normal aspect of my life to just immerse myself in this chaos, rather than get paralyzed by it. But at times, I have felt paralyzed too. But luckily, those moments passed.

During our last fundraiser, I posted that quote twice on "stickies". It really is a quote that speaks to me for some reason. I miss Hunter S. Thompson and wonder what he would think about the last four years.

G O N Z O

Buy the ticket, take the ride.





I still want to know why he lied and what he really talked about.

Peter Strzok was one of the two agents who interviewed him. What they observed was a man telling bald-face lies whose body language was that of someone being completely honest.

Strzok said he had never seen anyone lie in that way before.

Also, the agents wanted to end the interview, but Flynn kept it going, going on and on, and gave them a tour of the West Wing.

Does anybody else think the discussion had to to with the Magnitsky Act?

I received a personal reply from someone in Prime Minister Ardern's office (New Zealand)

I'm posting this because I've written hundreds and hundreds of emails to U.S. politicians over the last four years and only received automated replies every single time, often not even relevant to what I wrote about. I just melted when I received this, short as it is, because it was a response to a heartfelt thank you I wrote to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern after reading on DU that she had reached out to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to help us with COVID-19. I was incredibly grateful to be part of the world again.

It just blows my mind that someone in her office would take the time to respond to some nobody in the United States, whereas my own representatives can't be troubled to respond to my emails. Why can't we do better? Maybe this will change under Joe and Kamala.

Good morning Michael

On behalf of the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, many thanks for your kind
email.

I will certainly bring your email to Jacinda's attention - I know she will
appreciate reading your comments.

Kind regards, and stay safe in ######, Arizona.

Someone posted a link to a Parler influencer agreement document which said they would ask for things like government IDs. It's entirely unclear if they ever took that data or if was available via this database. But... yeah, this is the whole Parler site it looks like.

Why in the absolute fuck is Parler requesting any form of PII/PCI data?

"Globalism" -- I think you mean globalization

Globalism is a conspiracy theory. Globalization is a real thing.

This seems to me to be a false tautology, or a faulty premise. We need bilateralism to tackle some of the most serious problems of our time, like climate and the rise of anti-democratic parties and organizations, and national security and to fight back encroachments by Russia and China.

Will the people who voted for Trump find value in those objectives? I doubt it. Will they get richer? Will they be able to buy more beer? What does it mean that they "benefit" from our cooperation with our allies? If we avoid WW III, is that in their best interest? Will they notice that we avoided catastrophe, and thank Joe Biden for that? Nope.

But we have to pursue those goals because it's a moral imperative.

I could go on and on, splitting hairs and taking apart the premise of that article, but that's enough.
