kunstler gets it right in his description of the 'left' half of our one political party but forgets to serve an equal portion centered on the 'right' half, though with the exception of the two 'bloody shirts' they wave; abortion and guns, both are servants of the banks and the empire in all of their other endeavors;

Did you happen to view the Attorney General being assailed by lunatics in the House Judiciary Committee? It kind of looked like a scene from the French Revolution acted out by a road company touring Alice in Wonderland. Mr. Barr stolidly endured their orchestrated calumnies as though he had larger matters on his mind. Do not suppose it will end there, or end well for this shabby claque of mutts and harpies.
There is the rectified essence of your Democratic Party circa the awful year 2020, spreading its poisons into every organ of society like a fungal overgrowth, making the nation crazy as the old economy of cheeseburgers and happy motoring disintegrates under the spell of a mystifying plague and the peoples’ zombie indifference turns to epic woe and fury.
If the forlorn homunculus Chairman Nadler accomplished anything, it was to ratchet up Mr. Barr’s determination to round up and indict the figures behind the years’ long campaign of sedition waged against the public interest and decency. Sometime before Halloween, an awful wrath is going to befall Barack Obama’s wingmen and handmaidens, and it will be a supremely sobering moment.
It’s the elected Democrats of Oregon — Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown — who have turned the Federal Courthouse there into a new Alamo by ordering their police to stand down. And isn’t it rather strange that they’ve gotten The New York Times and CNN rooting against the tiny crew of federal officers bravely defending the place? In a sane country, these politicians would be indicted as accessories to riot and insurrection. And the same goes for elected Democrats in Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, Richmond and other cities where the Antifa freaks are allowed to run more...........
caitlin always has some ideas that might do well spread about for more to consider, as it seems that these days the only things being considered are the product of the tv and corrupt politicians;

The real deep state power grab underway isn’t about Covid, it’s about the new cold war agendas against China and Russia. All analysts who’ve been staring transfixed by Covid anxiety waiting for Bill Gates to usher in the New World Order have completely missed this story due to a misguided collective decision to fixate on this virus.
The virus will certainly play a part in many ways, but the real large-scale power agendas at work revolve around the US-centralized empire’s increasingly urgent campaign to sabotage the China alliance before it upends the current world order completely.
These escalations are accelerating and will probably get a lot worse if/when Biden wins. They put the entire world at risk of nuclear armageddon via a nuclear detonation due to misfire or miscommunication, and will saturate the information ecosystem with mountains of propaganda. That’s to say nothing of all the death and suffering that will be caused by all the new sanctions, proxy conflicts, coups and probably some hot warfare against less powerful nations in order to undermine the China alliance. This is looking to get ugly and too many are missing it.
All year it’s been nonstop, half-formed, contradictory theories about what the unelected power establishment is up to, when their real game has been unfolding right in front of us this whole time. It’s got all the usual war pigs and secretive government agencies, it’s about power, and it’s about lies. Look at more.........

fred is excellent at putting the state of america into a few direct and clear words as he has done here;

Black militia at Stone Mountain. Cocky, heavily armed, outgunning the police. White militias have similar firepower. A fight is entirely possible. In downtown America.
Hoo-boy. She’s ready to explode, go high order. Smoking ruins, dead bodies, seething hatreds, and a country that can’t be put back together. It may not happen, but she looks ready.
No one is in charge in this collapsing shell game of a country. In Louisville hundreds of armed blacks threaten to “burn the motherfucker down,” meaning Louisville, if they don’t get their way. All cringe before them, with reason. They have guns. Larger numbers marched in Georgia, armed, ready to rock and roll. BLM says it will “go into the suburbs” to get Whitey. Who will stop them? Not the government. It fears them. Weimar Kentucky. An American Freikorps.
America today in video. Scroll down to the New York footage. It’s Planet of the Apes.
Gun sales are way up. A friend in Rhode Island went to a gun shop and found a long line outside. A columnist in Virginia was told that the other stores report long waitlists for prize arms, notably the AR 15. People are afraid, or fed up. They are arming. The spring winds.
There is no leadership, no one in charge. In Trump we have perhaps the weakest President in history, mouthy, preening, ineffectual, much talk and no action. He did nothing while the rioters looted, burned, and vandalized, then disengaged himself from the pandemic, leaving decisions to the states. Much cawing and gaudy feathers, but no bird more............
videorebel has some information on the covid scene you might want to be aware of;

On June 6th the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) sued the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and HHS (Health and Human Services) to remove restrictions on the use of Hydroxychloroquine which combined with the natural anti-viral zinc has cured patients when they first show symptoms.
Pharmacists still are being pressured to refuse to fill prescriptions for HCQ.
Fake science studies have been conducted with toxic level doses and have produced toxic results. 2,400 milligrams of HCQ on the first day. You only need 200 milligrams of HCQ twice a week and zinc daily for prophylaxis. HCQ has been on the WHO list of safe medications for years. It is available over the counter in many nations. It is a lot safer than Tylenol 3.
All this foot dragging and deliberate obstruction from the Deep State, Big Pharma, the Democrats and the Corporate Media is getting people killed by the thousands.
I only heard about this lawsuit a few minutes ago even though it was filed almost 8 weeks ago.
I have a better idea. Take the 150 million doses of HCQ and use them prophylactically to open up America, stop the pandemic and save tens of millions of Americans from bankruptcy, unemployment, homelessness, suicide and even more...........

tucker carlson is on fire is the title of this and from what i've seen so far i agree. remember i have no political party available in this country as we only have the choice between two sides of one coin;
caitlin says it well in this satire about the empire's latest move;

Today’s Caitlin Johnstone essay has been replaced with a National News Conglomerate op-ed by General Hank Hammerfist. NNC: Obey.
The Trump administration has begun slashing the US military presence in Germany from an almost satisfactory 36,000 troops to a practically microscopic 24,000. I think we can all agree that this is the single worst thing that has ever happened in the history of Germany, and arguably the universe.
While most Americans were until now unaware that their government had that many troops in a nation known predominantly for beer and bleak documentaries, pundits and politicians in the know have been rightly proclaiming their outrage at this catastrophic event which disrupts God’s natural plan of endless military expansionism until the entire planet is an undifferentiated sea of camouflage fatigues and tiny American flag patches.
“Trump’s decision to withdraw US Forces from Germany shows a broad lack of strategic understanding. It sends the wrong signal to our adversaries and leaves our allies vulnerable in the face of increasing global threats. It’s simply unacceptable,” tweeted former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who as we all know is always correct about military more..........
four minutes on where we're heading as a society;
when asked who 'they' are i suggest you present this information as a starter course;

The Rothschild family fortune exploded via dealings and financial alliances with the Landgraves of Hesse in Frankfurt, Germany. Out of Frankfurt, Mayer Amschel Rothschild ran the affairs of Frederick II, Landgrave of Hesse, the wealthiest man in Europe, and his successor, Elector Wilhelm I, who, like Mayer, had also been born in 1743.
In the course of their operations, Mayer quickly moved into the profitable business of war and mercenaries. He expanded his realm of influence to Great Britain by arranging for King George III to hire 16,800 sturdy young Hessian soldiers from the Landgraves. This greatly expanded the Hesse Landgrave’s (and Rothschild) fortune.
The French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars from 1789 to 1815 were open-ended profit opportunities for the House of Rothschild.
In the preface of the book “The Rothschilds,” author Frederic Morton writes, “For the last 150 years, the history of the House of Rothschild has been to an amazing degree the backstage history of Western Europe. … Because of their success in making loans not to individuals but to nations, they reaped huge profits. … Someone once said that the wealth of Rothschild consists of the bankruptcy of nations.” more...........
i've been speaking of this graph with several individuals but couldn't find it again but here it is;

The highly-rated government-linked intel agency Deagel has updated its latest annual report which now forecasts that over two-thirds of the United States populace will not be living by 2025 which if true would be a reduction of 227 million people from the current count which includes a total of 327 million U.S. inhabitants. The question is: what type of imminent event or natural disaster does the agency’s think tank know is coming?
Based on a list of the agency’s clients and partners, it’s safe to say that something is likely headed our way. Take a look at the list for yourself. Does it look like these organizations dabble in conspiracy theories or the make-believe?
  • National Security Agency
  • Stratfor
  • The World Bank
  • United Nations (UN)
  • North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO – OTAN)
  • Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
  • OSCE
  • Russian Defense Procurement Agency
Moreover, the updated report forecasts that there will be only 10 living inhabitants per square kilometer in the U.S. by 2025 as opposed to the 34 inhabitants per square mile that are currently listed. That’s a 69.5% decrease over the next 53 more............
sherlock would say something about a great game being afoot, but here you can read some of what that game is which might lead you to question what your tv tells you;
Huge foreign loans are given to sovereign nations by the World Bank, IMF and the likes. But the conditions that come attached to these loans are seldom told by governments to their citizens. A recent case in Belarus has exposed the conditions laid by these agencies for loans being provided for COVID-19. The President of Belarus has exposed that the World Bank coronavirus aid comes with conditions for imposing extreme lockdown measures, to model their coronavirus response on that of Italy and even changes in the economic policies which he refused as being “unacceptable”.
Additional conditions which do not apply to the financial part are unacceptable for Belarus, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said when speaking about external lending during a meeting to discuss support measures for the real economic sector on the part of the banking system, reported Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA.
Aleksandr Lukashenko asked the participants of the meeting how things were with the provision of foreign credit assistance to Belarus. “What are our partners’ requirements? It was announced that they can provide Belarus with $940 million in so-called rapid financing. How are things here?” the head of state more........
in their fear and desire to obey any orders given, the great unwashed have neglected to consider the blowback from all of this covid fear, and this article will provide a reminder of just part of what's coming our way as a result of blind obedience;
The eviction moratorium expired last Friday nearly four months after the US economy effectively shutdown due to the covid pandemic, and more than 12 million renters – all behind on rent payments because of the virus-induced recession – are now at imminent risk of getting booted to the curb.
This Friday, some 25 million Americans will no longer receive their weekly $600 federal unemployment checks, and the next round of government handouts, currently discussed by Republicans and Democrats, could see benefits slashed from $600 to $200 (or be nothing at all if no deal is reached in Congress). This would crush household finances across middle-class America, resulting in an even higher number of households unable to pay their rent bill in the months ahead.
That said, Trump’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow, who has religiously pumped stocks with meaningless headlines any time the S&P is even barely in the red, recently said an extension for the eviction moratorium program could be seen. But what if there isn’t one?
In late July, more than 31 million Americans collected unemployment benefits of some form. The economic recovery reversed in late June, as the next crisis among households more...........
i'd like to hear from those of you who support 'our' government in defense of the actions of this local government. its a clear example of the mindless monster which 'our' government is becoming;
Oakland County, MI — In the land of the free, even if you fully pay off your home loan to the bank, your property is never truly yours. Through property tax, states from coast to coast continue to charge you for land that you own. As the following case illustrates, even if you accidentally forget to pay a tiny portion of these taxes to the state, they can and will steal your home right out from under you. Elderly retirees are no exception to the tyranny of taxation and state-sponsored theft.
Uri Rafaeli is an 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan learned the hard way just how thieving and corrupt government can be. As TFTP reported, Rafaeli’s home was stolen from him by Oakland County officials who promptly auctioned it off and kept the $24,000 profit they made from the sale. The state claims to be justified in their theft of Rafaeli’s home because he under paid his tax bill by just $8.41. However, constitutional experts, and the Michigan Supreme Court disagree.
Earlier this month, in a unanimous decision, the Michigan Supreme Court found the action to be an “unconstitutional taking without just compensation” under the state constitution.
The property theft was so egregious that now several officials in Michigan County are investigating the Treasurer for this ridiculous practice which has put the taxpayers at risk for serious legal more..........
mr smith makes clear here that not only are we not in kansas anymore but kansas may not even exist;

Not only is our lifestyle on back-order, so is our sanity.
Yesterday I mentioned our collective inability to make sense of the contradictory messages of the status quo and our own experience. This inability to reconcile completely contradictory messages generates psychosis, an internal breakdown that manifests as a disconnect from reality.
To take one example: we're constantly bombarded with the message that a four-year college diploma is the essential key to a secure middle-class lifestyle, yet our experience is that millions of college grads are living precariously, burdened by extremes of student loan debt.
Here's another I discussed yesterday: the status quo hypes the stock market's near-record highs as "proof" all is well and everything's getting back to "normal" but our experience is the real economy is in a stumbling free-fall.
And what is that "old normal" everyone is so anxious to return to anyway? How about too busy to be healthy, too addicted to social media to have agency? Or as the writer of Small Family Farms Aren’t the Answer wrote: "In short, we've done the most modern-American thing possible: bartered away our quality of life for the freedom to be miserable."
As for the "new normal," it's Extremes of Neofeudalism, Incompetence and Authoritarianism (June 30, 2020).
In other words, to keep us in thrall to an unsustainable status quo, what's been normalized and institutionalized is social psychosis, breakdown and burnout.
Our experience is shaped by what psychiatrist R.D. Laing identified as the Politics of Experience. While Laing's initial focus was on family dynamics (Sanity, Madness and the Family: Families of Schizophrenics) and how conflicting demands (contradictory political "necessities") within a family can trigger a breakdown in children, his insights also apply to society at more......
mr whitehead will show you in this essay that the empire is expanding at a great rate that isn't obvious to you because you're afraid and believe what they're telling you. it won't be to your advantage as time progresses;

As I’ve warned, this is a test to see how whether the Constitution—and our commitment to the principles enshrined in the Bill of Rights—can survive a national crisis and true state of emergency.
It must be remembered that James Madison, the “father” of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the fourth president of the United States, advised that we should “take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.
Whether or not you consider these COVID-19 restrictions to be cause for alarm, they are far from the first experiment on our liberties. Indeed, whether or not you concede that the pandemic itself is cause for alarm, we should all be alarmed by the government’s response to this pandemic.
By government, I’m not referring to one particular politician or administration but to the entire apparatus at every level that conspires to keep “we the people” fearful of one another and under virtual house more.............
this writer presents a clear path of our possible future in seven steps and says we're on the fifth;

A new virus starts to spread around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) declares a pandemic.
International agencies, public-health officials, politicians, media and other influential voices fan fear by focusing almost exclusively on the contagiousness of the virus and the rising numbers of cases, and by characterizing the virus as extremely dangerous.
Within a few days governments at national and local levels also declare states of emergency. At lightning speed they impose lock-down measures that confine most people to their homes – starting with closing schools – and shut down much of the global economy. World markets implode.
The stunned, fearful and credulous public – convinced over the previous few years that their bodies do not have the natural ability to react to pathogens by producing antibodies that confer long-lasting immunity – largely complies more...........
for those who have studied history deeply and long enough pcr's article below will tie lots of things together, but it won't be what your schools or tv taught you. even on the surface pcr's presentation takes you to a closer understanding of what really happened and why;

The Bankers’ Blood Money: Secession and Invasion
Paul Craig Roberts
Defense attorney and constitutional scholar John Remington Graham maintains that despite being two separate countries with different cultures and legislative interests, North and South had been held together by statesmen effecting compromises.  Before differing interests could break them apart, hatred had to be fomented between North and South. He states his position clearly:  “The American Civil War likewise would not have hapened if it had not been planned and fomented.”
Graham says that bankers, principally Rothschilds and Morgans, wanted a massive war that would greatly expand US national debt. By acquiring this debt and having legislation passed that would designate the debt as reserves for the issuence of money and credit, the banks would be able to use their power to expand or contract the supply of money and credit to control government and rule the country.  As the quote attributed to Mayer Amschel Rothschild puts it, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws.” Graham concludes that “the most important consequence of the American civil war was loss of the monetary independence of the United States. And that, as a practical matter, was also loss of political independence behind a facade of ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy.’”
To create the hatred necessary for war, the bankers financed John Brown’s Harper’s Ferry raid, the marketing of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the 11-year long court case of Dred Scott, and a variety of other machinations that served to brew hatred awaiting a catalyst to set off war.  Graham does not identify the catalyst. He argues correctly that it was not slavery and incorrectly that it was not the Morrill more...........
this writer will present evidence to back up the snip below, and i suspect you won't like the conclusions he presents. its the logical result of years of corruption and failure to focus on anything beyond wealth creation for the already wealthy and wars for the empire though you'll have to focus clearly to see my point;

Our entire system is in the process of melting down, but it will take some time for the drama that we are watching to fully play out.  Our leaders in Washington and the bureaucrats over at the Federal Reserve will keep flooding the system with money in a misguided attempt to fix things, and this will result in exceedingly painful inflation.
The cost of everything (including essentials such as food) will be going way up, and that means that your money will increasingly become less and less valuable.
If you could print your way to prosperity, Venezuela and Zimbabwe would be the wealthiest nations on the entire planet today.
At this point, almost everyone in Venezuela is a “millionaire”, but almost everyone is also living in extreme poverty.
History has shown that wildly printing money doesn’t work, but the U.S. is going down the exact same path, and it isn’t going to be more..........

caitlin's essay on the powerful and how you relate to that power is worth the few minutes it will take to introduce you to a point of view i suspect you have never imagined;

I had a weird dystopian dream recently where I was running away from these evil Agent Smith-type characters who looked just like normal people, so there was no way to recognize them; they could be an old man or a child or a librarian, or anyone.
The only sign that allowed me to tell them apart from real people always came too late: if I ever talked about the dark forces I was fighting, at some point they would say the words “Well, what did you expect?”
As in, what did you expect when you disobey us? What did you expect when you try to stand against our power? Did you think we wouldn’t come after you? Did you really think you could win?
It was a really scary, trippy dream, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
I’ve been thinking about it because it’s such an accurate reflection of how subservience to power actually manifests in our world. You talk about abusive power structures in our world, from police brutality to corporate predation to imperialist military interventionism, and many people are receptive. But you always wind up standing across from some freaky empire zombie saying “Well, what did you expect?”

if i believe what the tv tells me, i'm in the minority in believing the following information about the covid situation but you can and will decide what your conclusions are;

It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each other and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.”
- Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
Western civilization, led by the US government and media, has embarked upon a campaign of mass psychological terrorism designed to cover for the collapsing economy, set up a new pretext for Wall Street’s ongoing plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people.
The pretext for this abomination is an epidemic which objectively is comparable to the seasonal flu and is caused by the same kind of Coronavirus we’ve endured so long without totalitarian rampages and mass insanity.
The global evidence is converging on the facts: This flu is somewhat more contagious than the norm and is especially dangerous for those who are aged and already in poor health from pre-existing maladies. It is not especially dangerous for the rest of the more...........
there are times you just can't imagine why cops do what they do unless you put it off to the police having mental problems of some sort;

San Jose, CA — If you ever have any doubt about how the state forces compliance with arbitrary dictates like vehicle registration, it is the promise of violence. If you do not obey every single arbitrary traffic code, you will be issued a promise of extortion via a citation. If you refuse to pay those who are doing the extorting, they will kidnap and cage you. If you refuse to be kidnapped and caged, they can and will initiate violence against you.
Over the years, the Free Thought Project has reported on countless instances in which people have been beaten or even killed over things as trivial as a burned out light bulb on their license plate. As the following case illustrates, the state is willing to hold children at gunpoint while beating and arresting their mother for failing to pay the state for a vehicle registration sticker.
The video, recorded by San Jose resident Josh Gil, shows police stop a family in a McDonald’s parking lot. When the video begins, the mother is outside of the car and on her knees. She is not resisting and not posing a threat when all of the sudden one of the officers appears to kick her in the face.
The unidentified woman immediately drops to the ground as the officer yells at her, “Shut up,” and “I told you so.”
The cop then jumps on top of her as he continues scolding the woman. In the meantime, her children are hysterical in the back seat. The cop then grabs the woman by the handcuffs and yanks her so hard she comes off the ground. He then proceeds to drag her across the parking lot by the and watch more.........

hornberger presents some history and present day situations herein and extrapolates its possible directions into the future you might be interested in considering;

I find it fascinating to watch the rightwing, conservative mindset unfold in response to what is occurring in Portland because it reminds me so much of the same rightwing, conservative mindset with respect to Chile in the 1970s.
In 1970, the Chilean people elected an extreme radical to be their president. His name was Salvador Allende. He wasn’t a member of Black Lives Matter or Antifa, but in the eyes of the U.S. national-security establishment and others within the U.S. rightwing, conservative movement, he was a far more dangerous radical than BLM or Antifa. That’s because Allende was a communist and a socialist. In the eyes of the Pentagon, the CIA, the NSA, and the rightwing, conservative movement, there is no one more dangerous than that.
After all, don’t forget about the vast worldwide communist conspiracy based in Moscow that U.S. officials steadfastly maintained was threatening to take over the United States and the rest of the world during the entire Cold War. No matter how radical those BLM people might be — and the Antifa people as well — no one is saying that they are part of a vast worldwide conspiracy to conquer the U.S. and the world.
And don’t forget — when Allende was elected president in 1970, Cuba was still in communist hands. Just imagine: a spearhead of the communist conspiracy was only 90 miles away from American shores! How scary is that!
Also, don’t forget that the U.S. civil rights movement, which could be considered a predecessor to the BLM movement, was considered to be a Fifth Column for the communist conspiracy to take over the United States. That’s why the FBI was spying on Martin Luther King and blackmailing him into committing suicide (and maybe even orchestrating his assassination, just as the CIA was doing with other suspected communist sympathizers) more.........
i have no trust or belief in anything any politician has to say and go by their actions which just about always present the fact of their lies. the vr is presenting some of the dumocorps plans for your future here and they ain't lies;

The Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders forces got together and issued an 80 page draft of the Democrat 2020 platform. The following are some of their more insane ideas:
The DNC 2020 platform wants to take the New York Style No Cash Bail law and go nationwide. Within a year every city, suburb and small town can have a 279% increase in violent crime just like the streets of New York. A man was holding his 6 year-old daughter’s hand as he crossed the street. A car pulled up to the intersection and stopped. A black man in the passenger seat fired a revolver and killed the black man in the crosswalk. The 6 year-old girl fled in terror. Her life was changed forever that day because Democrat politicians in New York have ideas that do not conform to the real world the rest of us live in.
Leo Terrel is a 65 year-old civil rights attorney who is black and has never supported a Republican for President but has decided to publicly endorse and campaign for Donald Trump in 2020. Why? Because Democrats would destroy the cities where tens of millions of blacks, Latinos, Asians and poor whites live. Where will they go to flee the coming wave of violence if they do not have the millions of dollars required to move to the Hamptons to live with Democrat donors?
In Mayor De Blasio’s New York City shootings are up 277% over the same period last year. The Mayor thinks he and the Democrat Governor Cuomo have achieved something by having passed No Cash Bail which resulted in the lowest prison population since WW more...........

it seems that since 'our justice' system doesn't work that others are taking over the abandoned job;

The decapitated corpse that was found on a judge’s doorstep in Ocala, Florida has been identified as belonging to a notorious pedophile who was recently allowed to walk free on bail by the judge, according to reports.

William Smith, 28, was discovered in the early hours of Tuesday morning, decapitated and slumped against the front door of the judge who had granted him bail in August.
Smith was arrested last month following allegations by his then girlfriend that he had raped her 8-year-old daughter.
After a police investigation in which Smith was found in possession of child pornography, he was arrested on two counts related to child pornography and one count of child molestation.
After being charged, Smith walked free from the court after the judge controversially ruled that he did not pose a threat to the local community, and he raised the $30,000 bail required to trigger his freedom.
The alleged victim’s family said they were “shocked” that Smith had been allowed to walk free from court.
Smith was awaiting trial for his crimes and was awaiting a court date which was due to be scheduled for later this year, however it seems that somebody from the local  community decided to take matters into their own hands. The judge, whose name has been withheld, was woken at around 3am by his “frenzied” barking dog. When he went outside to find out what his dog was barking about, he found the decapitated body of the man he had allowed to walk free slumped against his front door with the severed head left on the steps.
Investigating officers described his death scene as resembling a “gangland-style execution“ more..........

sweden didn't lock down and was criticized by those who did but it appears from the chart you can see at the link that their results are much better than those who did lock it all up;

While the Covid-19 epidemic continues to drag on in the United States, it’s largely over in Sweden where fatalities have dropped to no more than 2 deaths per day for the last week.Sweden has been harshly criticized in the media for not imposing draconian lockdowns like the United States and the other European countries. Instead, Sweden implemented a policy that was both conventional and sensible. They recommended that people maintain a safe distance between each other and they banned gatherings of 50 people or more. They also asked their elderly citizens to isolate themselves and to avoid interacting with other people as much as possible. Other than that, Swedes were encouraged to work, exercise and get on with their lives as they would normally even though the world was still in the throes of a global pandemic.
The secret of Sweden’s success is that its experts settled on a strategy that was realistic, sustainable and science-based. The intention was never to “fight” the virus which is among the most contagious infections in the last century, but to protect the old and vulnerable while allowing the young, low-risk people to circulate, contract the virus, and develop the antibodies they’d need to fight similar pathogens in the future. It’s clear now that that was the best approach. And while Sweden could still experience sporadic outbreaks that might kill another 2 to 300 people, any recurrence of the infection in the Fall or Winter will not be a dreaded “Second Wave”, but a much weaker flu-like event that will not overwhelm the public health system or kill thousands of more........

two examples of police failures in one day may be a recent record. the police being mostly unaccountable continue to fail in their alleged job;

Bexar County, TX — In December 2017, the Free Thought Project reported on the tragic death of 6-year-old Kameron Prescott whose life was stolen from him when police opened fire on an unarmed woman suspected of stealing a car. In June of 2018, the family of the little boy who was gunned down by police found out that the cops who killed their son all went back to work. Then, in March of last year, the family found out that none of the officers responsible for the death of her son would face charges. After the system refused to hold itself accountable, the family filed a lawsuit against Bexar county and have been getting the run-around ever since.
This month, the family announced in a letter that it is now calling on Bexar County to settle the lawsuit. According to KENS5, in a 16-page letter sent to county commissioners, attorneys for Prescott’s father and mother, Christopher and Rubi Prescott, laid out what they had discovered since filing suit against the county, writing that while they are “confident in our case,” the Prescott family is “willing to accept, at this time, a fraction of what a jury would likely award as damages.”
The letter reveals new details of Prescott’s killing, including the release of a video which proves a DPS trooper informed the officer that the woman police were shooting at, had no weapons. Also, the letter states that police falsely claimed the suspect, Amanda Jones, was involved in a vehicle burglary which they claim prompted the chase. In reality, according to the letter, a bounty hunter had tipped off police that Jones was in the area.
“What we had was a case where a call from a bounty hunter led to a two-hour police chase of a non-violent suspect, and it resulted in that suspect fleeing and standing in front of a mobile home where there was a child’s bicycle on the porch and a car in the driveway and a 6-year-old boy playing inside that had nothing to do with this police chase,” said Tom Crosley, an attorney for Kameron Prescott’s father, Christopher Prescott. “And deputies in this case fired 20 rounds from assault rifles. And one of those rounds killed this innocent young child.” more.........
this edition of protect and serve is especially frustrating and horrible;

Florence, AL — Allen Hanvey, 51 — who has never been in trouble with police before — was scheduled to have neck surgery on November 20, 2018. The night before surgery, he had one final errand to run before he would get some rest and he and his wife would leave in the morning for Birmingham. He would never make that surgery, however, because he experienced a medical emergency and abusive cops showed up to “help” him. He was having a stroke but police thought he was drunk.
Hanvey says the last thing he remembers that night was waking up surrounded cops. Tammy and Allen Hanvey — along with a team of Vanderbilt neurologists — say Allen suffered a stroke, causing him to slide off the road that night. The neurologists say he likely experienced a seizure as well.
Instead of getting the medical help he needed, however, newly released body camera footage shows police mocked at him, beat him, and treated him like an animal. Then they lied on the police report and claimed Hanvey tried to hurt them. The video shows that Hanvey was mostly unconscious the entire time.
“Tammy asked me what happened, and I said I have not one clue, but they hurt me, and they hurt me bad,” said Hanvey.
In police reports filed the night in question first responders alleged Hanvey was “possibly intoxicated” and “uncooperative and belligerent,” charging him with assaulting a police and watch more.......

in case you're one of the true believers, i suggest you read and consider the implications of the following report on the first iraq war;
During the past six years, the American Gulf War Veterans Association has received numerous reports from veterans stating that US forces–including Navy Seals, Marine Force Recon, and Delta Force–were responsible for the setting of the oil well fires at the end of the Gulf War. One veteran has now stepped forward and given a detailed account of how he and others in special teams, moved forward of the front, behind enemy lines ahead of US forces, set explosive and incendiary charges on the well heads, and remained hidden until after the charges were remotely detonated and US forces advanced beyond their position. “We were mustered into the briefing tent at which point a gentleman whom I first had thought to be an American… but I was concerned because he was wearing a UN uniform and insignias, began to brief us on the operation.” We’ve had five, four other reports of people similar that have brought this to our attention.
“A little known fact about the Gulf War is that one month before the Declaration of War on December 15th, 1990, Secretary of State, James Baker, signed the US Army report from the 352nd Civil Affairs Command on the New Kuwait (unclassified, and therefore available to those interested). This report describes in detail how extensively Kuwait will be destroyed, how the oil wells will be set on fire, and then how it will all be rebuilt ‘better than before’, with despotism, rather than democracy, even more strongly entrenched than it had been before. The report includes a list of US corporations who are to be assigned the profitable task of rebuilding Kuwait and extinguishing the oil well fires, as well as the Arab names they will be operating under.” The Bushes corrupt scheme included driving from Kuwait competing energy companies such as the giant Deutsche Babcock conglomerate… more.........
i watch tucker carlson as often as chance offers the opportunity and have yet to hear him say anything i disagree with but others aren't so focused;

Tucker Carlson has been in the headlines a lot recently, more than might seem acceptable for a news journalist. But is the Fox News host really the menace to the media that his Democratic detractors proclaim him to be?
Perhaps the best way to describe Tucker Carlson’s career at the moment is with a borrowed quote from ‘A Tale of Two Cities’: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness...” Although the Fox News personality is at the top of his game, never before has his career looked more precarious than right now.
Last month, as the Covid pandemic was sweeping the country, and the streets were exploding amid ‘peaceful’ Black Lives Matter protests, ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ was the highest-rated cable news show in the country. That special honor, however, was marred by scandal and, some would argue, the fake outrage and hyper-sensitivities of social justice warriors.
Carlson attracted the wrath of his detractors for daring to say that the rioting and looting that broke out during the BLM protests was “definitely not about black lives.” He went on to argue that it was critical to tell the truth when confronted by “the mob,” otherwise “they will crush you.” .......  read and watch more..........
