I found this through Sargon's Telegram feed:

https://humanevents.com/2019/08/21/the-real-history-of-gamergate/

It's quite useful that it's on humanevents.com, as WikiPedia accepts that as a reliable source.  I think they're going to have trouble suporting their ideological slant without a serious purge.

There's some fascinating books out there.


Real-world examination of the effects of socialism, including what it does to the beer.  (Venezuela no longer makes bad beer.  Venezuela no longer makes beer, because they cannot pay to import barley, which is hard to grow in the tropics.  Their former beer is brewed in Florida now, and it's crap.)

I find it interesting that the actual numbers they quote show that Republican-aligned people are dislike the government agencies they dislike to a lesser degree than Democrat-aligned people dislike the agencies hey dislike.

I would like to know if the IRS is now more strongly disliked than Time-Warner Cable.  They didn't used to be, but that was before the Obama administration began portraying the IRS as being filled with people who actively and spontaneously misuse their positions for partisan political purposes (this being their claim as to how numerous IRS agents began to work against Conservative political movements all over the US all at the same time, without any apparent orders to do so).

More from WTI.TV, this segment just might capture the utter stupidity of Tucker Carlson.

The ODNI recently partially declassified a FISC ruling from one year ago
The short story is that the FISC found that the FBI was not properly recording queries on U.S. persons from FISA and Section 702 acquired data (see Part IV.A).  This was in light of the fact that the FBI had a track record of conducting improper queries (see Part IV.B).  The queries were improper as they could not credibly linked to any legitimate national security or law enforcement interest.
For example:
-"On December 1, 2017 the FBI's (redacted) conducted over 6,800 queries using the Social Security Numbers of individuals (redacted) See Apr. 27, 2018, Notice at 2."
-"A set of queries (overlapping to some extent with the set of inadvertent queries of Section 702 data) apparently intended to return FBI documents or material.  See, e.g., May 17, 2018, Notice at 2 (redacted) May 4, 2018, Notice at 2 (redacted)"

This should be very alarming considering the following from this ruling:
"In 2017, NCTC, the CIA, and NSA collectively used approximately 7500 terms associated with U.S. persons to query content information acquired under Section 702, ... while the during the same year FBI personnel on a single system ran approximately 3.1 million (emphasis mine) against raw FISA-acquired information, including section 702-acquired information."

All references to the Fourth Amendment (yes they are there) in this ruling are obvious lip-service.

Jerry Corbyn's son Tommy was running a company called NHS (National Hemp Service) and managed to loose about 200 000 pounds and go bankrupt.  How bad do you have to be with money to go broke selling drugs?

For extra value, Jerry Corbyn had bragged about giving his son business advice.

Never take advice on business from anyone like Corbyn.

Or dad. Never take advice from dad either.

A very good political commentary about an entertaining (although, like all action movies, not actually good) action movie.


What I think is sad is that we're getting solid political commentary from the likes of Sargon, a man who will tell you straight up he's literally a professional shitposter, in that's how he earns his living.

The world is in serious trouble:  Shitposters are giving us real political analysis, and whatever TL;DR is is giving us real analysis of journal articles.  (Seriously, he's going through the Sokal Squared papers that got accepted for publication.  How nobody noticed the one that was a rework of a chapter of Mein Kampf wasn't that is beyond me.  The title included "My Struggle is Our Struggle," and it was all about fighting against 'choice feminism' and 'liberal feminism' with 'unity feminism.')

https://babylonbee.com/news/public-school-teachers-adamantly-insist-their-jobs-are-non-essential/

Quote from: Babylon Bee
U.S.?Public school teachers gathered outside the schoolhouses of the nation this week, continuing to insist quite adamantly that their jobs are non-essential.

?We need to lockdown all non-essential work, like teaching, due to the coronavirus pandemic,? stated one teacher protesting outside her local elementary school. ?What we do in the classroom is really not adding the kind of value to your children?s upbringing that we should risk spreading the virus.?

?If you look at the graduation rates, standardized test scores, and the studies that indicate public schools aren?t preparing students for the real world, believe me, we?re not doing your child any favors,? she added.

Another teacher holding a sign which read ?Don?t Make Us Work!? quickly chimed in, ?But we should still be paid until there is a vaccine. People are suffering in this crisis, essential workers and non-essential workers alike, and we all just need to get through this together. God bless our essential workers.?
 
At publishing time, the protesters had ordered food delivery and more protesting supplies that arrived to them thanks to the hard work of actual essential workers.

I fucking love The Babylon Bee.  It has basically filled the niche' that The Onion has long since abandoned. :)
