  1. “Same old story: alleged intelligence ops IMPOSSIBLE to verify, leaked to the press which reports them quoting ANONYMOUS officials,” tweeted journalist Stefania Maurizi.
  2. NYT, CNN, FOX, George Will, the Lincoln Project and the former George W Bush administration all have one source - NYT.
  3. At least I can spell. This is yet another red herring where the NYT buys something totally bogus because it's too good to be true (like the phony Russia dossier) and publishes it without any kind of real investigation. It will be quietly disclaimed later after all the uproar has passed. You read it here first.
  4. That's because it came from the New York Times. They have zero journalistic integrity. They're the same ones who cried wolf about the Russian collusion conspiracy for three years. I'll believe it when I see it (this bounty stuff) corroborated by a reputable source, not the NYT. Are there any available? Not saying it would surprise me, given that the US has whacked Russian mercenaries in Syria. But so what? I'll believe the Russia Times before I believe the NYT: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/493089-times-afghanistan-russia-bounties/
  5. India's the same way. There was a huge scandal almost ten years ago. The big tip-off was when the (female) pilot brought a 737 in really hard, more than once. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/Fake-pilots-SpiceJet-suspends-woman-pilot/articleshow/7782644.cms https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2011/03/23/air_india_pilots_bought_fake_licences_57_others_showed_up_for_work_drunk.html See also https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/indian-arrests-reveal-corruption-in-granting-of-pilot-licenses/2011/04/13/AFTaIkvD_story.html I don't understand why countries with generally smart people feel the need to fake it, especially when it harms the reputations of other professionals where lives are at stake, such as in medicine. Just seen where the UK and EU have banned Paki Air. Let's hope ICAO follows suit. https://www.ibtimes.com/eu-uk-ban-pakistani-international-airlines-six-months-over-pilots-fake-license-3003954
  6. Here's more. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-2202342/Video-Seattle-police-release-video-documenting-violence-inside-CHOP.html Yeah, sure. It's the guns. There are plenty of videos of beatings by the SOYviets in Capitol Hill, no guns involved (and no, I'm not going to post them here. Go to YouTube [which is rapidly de-platforming many conservatives. BitChute here I come]). This is what happens when liberalism goes wild and allows the inmates to run the asylum. The buzz is that the dipshit mayor didn't give a rat's ass about it until the soyboys came to HER neighborhood. I know that's a coincidence, but the irony is delicious nonetheless. Coddling these punks has resulted in DEATH. It's certainly no laughing matter.
  7. Yup. Anarchy, blood in the streets. It's just the beginning. Here we are, indeed. Meanwhile in Antifastan: https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/crime/one-dead-one-critical-in-early-morning-shooting-at-capitol-hill-protest-zone/ The rescue team couldn't reach the victims because the protesters stopped them.
  8. 50 years from now, this civilization which you trumpet will be dust.
  9. Incomplete - it always cycles. Please see quote by Robert E. Howard. v/r, mh
  10. That reads like Sun-Tzu. Smart guy, worthy of emulation. Thanks!
  11. Just as no amount of political correctness or social engineering will ever alter the path of human nature - it simply is what it is. I also know that I am on the right side of history. "Barbarism is the natural state of Mankind...Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph." -- Robert E. Howard, Beyond the Black River
