Your personal ability and kindness in touching all the things was priceless.
In the knockout stages, if a match is level at the end of normal playing time, extra time is played two periods of 15 minutes each and followed, if necessary, by a penalty shoot-out to determine the winners. If a match went into extra time, each team was allowed to make a fourth substitution, the first time this had been allowed in a FIFA World Cup tournament. Twelve own goals were scored during the tournament, doubling the record of six set in In total, only four players were sent off in the entire tournament, the fewest since A player is automatically suspended for the next match for the following offences: The following awards were given at the conclusion of the tournament.
The award was sponsored by Hyundai. FIFA also published an alternate team of the tournament based on player performances evaluated through statistical data. Prize money amounts were announced in October The tournament logo was unveiled on 28 October by cosmonauts at the International Space Station and then projected onto Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre during an evening television programme.
Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said that the logo was inspired by "Russia's rich artistic tradition and its history of bold achievement and innovation", and FIFA President Sepp Blatter stated that it reflected the "heart and soul" of the country. The official mascot for the tournament was unveiled 21 October , and selected through a design competition among university students.
A public vote was used to select from three finalists—a cat, a tiger, and a wolf. The first phase of ticket sales started on 14 September , The general visa policy of Russia did not apply to participants and spectators, who were able to visit Russia without a visa right before and during the competition regardless of their citizenship.
A Fan-ID was required to enter the country visa-free, while a ticket, Fan-ID and a valid passport were required to enter stadiums for matches. Fan-IDs also granted World Cup attendees free access to public transport services, including buses, and train service between host cities. Fan-ID was administered by the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media , who could revoke these accreditations at any time to "ensure the defence capability or security of the state or public order".
The official match ball of the World Cup group stage was " Telstar 18 ", based on the name and design of the first Adidas World Cup ball from It was introduced on 9 November After the group stage, "Telstar Mechta" was used for the knockout stage.
The word mechta Russian: The difference between Telstar 18 and Mechta is the red details on the design. Its music video was released on 8 June Thirty-three footballers who are alleged to be part of the steroid program are listed in the McLaren Report. The choice of Russia as host has been challenged. Controversial issues have included the level of racism in Russian football,    and discrimination against LGBT people in wider Russian society.
Allegations of corruption in the bidding processes for the and World Cups caused threats from England's FA to boycott the tournament.
Garcia , a US attorney, to investigate and produce a report on the corruption allegations. Eckert's summary cleared Russia and Qatar of any wrongdoing, but was denounced by critics as a whitewash. On 3 June , the FBI confirmed that the federal authorities were investigating the bidding and awarding processes for the and World Cups. In response to the March poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal , British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that no British ministers or members of the royal family would attend the World Cup, and issued a warning to any travelling England fans.
The British Foreign Office and MPs had repeatedly warned English football fans and "people of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent" travelling to Russia of "racist or homophobic intimidation, hooligan violence and anti-British hostility". At the close of the World Cup Russia was widely praised for its success in hosting the tournament, with Steve Rosenberg of the BBC deeming it "a resounding public relations success" for Putin, adding, "The stunning new stadiums, free train travel to venues and the absence of crowd violence has impressed visiting supporters.
Russia has come across as friendly and hospitable: All the foreign fans I have spoken to are pleasantly surprised. FIFA President Gianni Infantino stated, "Everyone discovered a beautiful country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true.
A lot of preconceived ideas have been changed because people have seen the true nature of Russia. These broadcasts were made available from selected rightsholders and television providers. In February , Ukrainian rightsholder UA: PBC stated that it would not broadcast the World Cup. This came in the wake of growing boycotts of the tournament among the Football Federation of Ukraine and sports minister Ihor Zhdanov.
On 2 June , beIN pulled its channels from Du and Etisalat , but with service to the latter restored later that day. Etisalat subsequently announced that it would air the World Cup in the UAE, and continue to offer beIN normally and without interruptions. While FIFA attempted to indirectly negotiate the sale of a package consisting of Saudi matches, as well as the opening and final games, they were unable to do so.
On 12 July , FIFA stated that it had "engaged counsel to take legal action in Saudi Arabia and is working alongside other sports rights owners that have also been affected to protect its interests.
The elimination of the United States in qualifying led to concerns that US interest and viewership of this World Cup would be reduced especially among "casual" viewers interested in the U. During a launch event prior to the elimination, Fox stated that it had planned to place a secondary focus on the Mexican team in its coverage to take advantage of their popularity among US viewers factoring Hispanic and Latino Americans. Fox stated that it was still committed to broadcasting a significant amount of coverage for the tournament.

Trump is entitled to fire the whole lot of the ones who remain. But, finally, all this has to be sorted out in federal court, with referrals made to the very Department of Justice that has been a main actor in this tale. The story is moving very fast now.

He has published three novellas with Water Street Press: Subscribe Subscribe to our e-mail newsletter to receive updates.
Gaslighting is a active part of subversion. A call to insanity as the Devil. Joe DeGenova should be made Attorney General.
I think that Sessions will do nothing to help the President after the way that Trump publicly dressed him down on tweets on several occasions. Revenge is a dish best served cold. At least he might try something more than using all the enormous power of the D. James Clapper insisted the other day that he did not commit any crimes.
This is a sign that President Trump has turned the tables on former top intel officials like Clapper who keep shifting his story on what happened during the campaign. Now he is saying that there was spying on the Trump campaign but that it was a good thing for Trump LOL because they were trying to make sure that there was no foreign infiltration into his campaign.
I find it interesting that the media in this country has at the same time lost its credibility, but kept its power. I can remember assiduously reading the Times every day. There is a clique of bipolar progressives in this country who, outside of politics, are rational, generally highly educated, and career-successful. When it comes to politics, groupthink has reduced them to an IQ of 30 or lower, and they advocate dangerously ludicrous policy prescriptions for our country.
But demographically, they are economically successful, and form a good target audience for commercial advertisers. The media is without competition so of course they keep their power. As more power accumulates in fewer hands the advantages of competition in producing truth in media and fair market prices in everything else vanishes. Price and truth discovery fails.
Is it gaslighting to suggest this fishy business over Trump and Red vs. Blue team collusions is like deciding between granite or quartz in a kitchen remodel for a house about to be foreclosed on?
Yes Jigplate, the media has no credibility; it has plummeting ratings. The MSM outlets are all corporate and in the hands of a few major players, all by design.
No surprise then that manufacturing consensus in the 21st century is pretty much automatic. All who are utterly beholden to Israel as well. Have you seen the news that south carolina now makes it illegal to criticize israel? So much for the 1st amendment. Doubly crazy in the deep south protestant bible belt. Savior cults do indeed make for all kinds of strange bedfellows.
Yes, if they would only read their Bibles instead of listening to those evil preachers in polyester suits. No one criticized the Judaism more ferociously than Jesus. He hated the Pharisee sect and they hated him and had him put to death in collusion with the Romans.
Yet now many of his supposed followers do all but worship the Jewish State. And both groups have a delusional attachment to the written ravings of violent Iron Age tribes.
On a lighter note, I think I might have to start reading Mr. I never have heard of, until this very day, hugger-mugger. Attending are official delegations from hundreds of countries.
Noticeably low profile though are the delegations from the US and UK. So why are the delegations from these two countries keeping a low profile? Perhaps the theme of this forum is focused on Classical Economics which is more about building things up rather than tearing them down for the benefit of a select few? Any and all Western meanings are proscribed by the Left so you better watch out George.
When he became AG he became immersed in a culture of deep staters. These became his peers. In order to be in the good graces of those loyal to the institutional culture he got hired into, while he did not join the cult outright, he did become mentally oriented toward deferring to them; letting them call the shots. He is probably feeling clueless, overstimulated in a trackless void…. The bottomline for DC pols is to get re-elected and stay on the corrupt money train for as long as possible.
Plus, they always have that week in Bohemian Grove to look forward to. Put him among Klansmen and he become a Klansman. Among Black Nationalists, a pale Black Nationalist, etc. He is a chameleon, a mirror that takes on the color of his environment.
Trump tweeted at least once that, if he had known that Sessions was going to recuse himself on the Russia probe, he would not have appointed him in the first place. But Trump must have felt that he owed old Jeff, as Sessions was the first sitting Senator to publicly endorse him. Rudy Giuliani told Hannity in an interview that he was offered the AG job first, but turned it down, and now regrets his decision — he was holding out for Secretary of State. If no Sessions, then no Mueller.
The courts are the primary arm of power for the Left now and as such are not the impartial bodies they are supposed to be. It still slays me that a Federal Judge in Hawaii can block actions from the executive branch over all the US. I remember calling this the day after Trump won the election. As the social ist studies teachers were literally wailing in the hallway, many students in my school who were recent immigrants were fretting about how the Donald and his jack booted thugs were going to kick down their doors that night.
The concerted effort to bring about this nefarious state of affairs was handily accomplished during the Cheney administration. Success, security and satisfaction for the corporate police state; hip, hip, hurrah! On Infowars the other day, Roger Stone said Trump may not run in And that is simply unacceptable to the Elite who are used to getting absolutely everything they want, the people and nation be damned.
Thanks for that, K-Dog. The migrants in question are requesting asylum, specifically on the basis that they face harm if they are returned to their home country. The Canadian government determines whether or not to grant asylum by evaluating each claim on its merits.
Individual stories certainly are horrific , and needless to say I deplore all violence and call for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. Statistics reported by the S. But that only covers the few years up to — I found no information confirming attacks targeting whites specifically have increased since then. However, the latest Amnesty International report a source I trust to be impartial and thorough, unlike Janos makes no mention of such attacks.
It does note allegations of threats and harassment by a political party, Black First Land. All of this is suggestive, and worth keeping an eye on. But it falls far short of showing that white South Africans as a group are endangered. In any case, people from South Africa are as entitled to seek asylum in Canada, and to make their case that they face harm in their home countries, as anyone else.
If Janos contends the Canadian government is refusing just asylum claims by anyone, let him prove it. Even you beloved Mandela? And that the plans are afoot to push all Whites off the land without compensation? And that many desire a genocide against Whites? Why they likely even support Affirmative Action.
Certainly the ACLU supports it. The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of truth race. Gregory Stanton, founder and president of Genocide Watch , who wrote:. They should be prepared to defend themselves, and be ready to leave South Africa. Racists like Julius Malema are taking control of the African National Congress, and they are not being stopped by the current leaders.
If they are not prevented from gaining power, genocidal violence will afflict South Africa as it has Zimbabwe. Julius Malema is a South African politician. His Wikipedia article links to a column characterizing him as a racial nationalist.
To which I say, thank god for small favours, and that puts him on my shit list right alongside all the people Janos likes — and for the same reasons.
The people at Amnesty International and other organizations can have their biases too without endangering my serene confidence that they are still, and by far, more impartial and thorough than the likes of Janos Skorenzy. The truth always bears watching, and bearing witness. Maybe the end result will be the settlement of Central Americans into the northern expanses of Canada where they came co mingle with the Inuits.
Most of the people crossing not all but most from Minnesota here into Manitoba were some kind of African variant. Or any African variant. Many other crime groups also exist, mainly Lebanese and Somali. In Ottawa, by the early twentieth century, drive-by shootings were rare and most gang activity involved narcotic distribution. Particularly when the gangs in the US are essentially privately owned armies.
Obviously, somebody wants the guns there. You may not want them, but there are Canadian citizens who do, so.
We all know that Canadians are upright, orderly, law abiding people. Moreover, simply banning all firearms will definitely stop criminals from acquiring them.
Why are you highjacking the comments section so early? Clearly Open Society Foundation dollars at work here. The smell of Soros is strong this Friday morning. And as an admirer of the unabridged, lengthy, digressive and dark book itself, I feel a bit offended.
Too many Americans, unfortunately, are familiar only with the movie, or with shortened versions of the book. Remember, Phut, many people cannot or care not to read, even great works from towering figures of the American Transcendentalist tradition.
The scene in the cabin with Ahab and Starbuck not to be confused with a confused racist coffee chain of the same name is masterful. Always a big disappointment when I bring up the newest CFN and see that Jim has decided to wallow in this bullshit once again.
Due to excessive demagoguery and lack of veracity by the MSM, I have not found the interest to parse the issue at hand…Our host does so, and provides an encapsulation of the issue that I can accept without issue. Yes, life is too short to follow their deceitful manoeuvres. When one lie is rumbled they replace it with two more. Nobody can keep up. The NYT newsroom, like most, is being taken over by Millenials, who, like their younger siblings of Generation Z, are barely able to use the English language.
Brought up viewing screens, to them reading is optional. To this illiteracy I attribute the misleading NYT headlines our host cites today, not to a calculated attempt to deceive.
Most cannot produce clear handwriting, not even numerals; cannot write their signature in cursive; and have trouble doing simple arithmetic without a calculator. They probably could not tell you the years of the Civil War. But their classrooms have technology. Neil Postman wrote about the dumbing-down effects of television on our culture more than 30 years ago in Amusing Ourselves to Death.
That was before Facebook and smartphones. There must be some of those, somewhere. And these competent writers are under orders from their editors to sabotage Trump. I admit, it could be. Along those same lines, As a teacher , I just cannot get used to the near complete inability of most of my students to read the analog clock that is on the wall. White and Asian kids too? If so, sad indeed. But putting little kids in front of computers and babies in front of the TV is obviously a disaster, so why be surprised I guess.
Quite a few sources pointing that out now. All fingers point to O! Just call it the Clinton put, although it looks like it might yet turn into a putsch! Did you hear about the big Netflix deal? Him and Michelle are going to make movies. No doubt with White Nationalist and Patriot themes…. Is it conscious, subconscious, unconscious, or semi-conscious? Unconscious and Sub-Conscious in healthy normal people.
Fully conscious in the Nobles or in any healthy Elite. Janos, you can hardly overestimate my delight when I discovered Mr. It was like walking into an upscale bar and finding you way in the back holding onto a stripper pole and twirling the tassels of your little swastika pasties, just quivering impotently and eager for notice. Was it good for you? It was good for me. Then I zipped, snapped and buckled my belt leaving you all sticky. How do you like being dominated by a woman?
Its really too bad that all those vaginae are attached to real people with teeth. While I understand a good one is expensive, have you considered one of those anatomically correct Japanese dolls.
If you would prefer that I desist from drilling down into your data you can apologize to me now and we can ignore each other in the future. Certainly, the FBI has been proven in the past to overstep and infiltrate. Think back to the anti-war movement, MLK, etc. And yes, corporations own the political process and all of her bombastic minions, but Trump is quite simply a goddamn lying fool who might very well inadvertantly kill millions of people in proving to a long lost Daddy and Mommy that he has some human value and worth, afterall.
Obama was a Wall Street tool, okay…we all get that. He obviously backed the corrupt Clintons over Trump. Facts we are al now becoming numb to: Bareback a porn star with a new mother at home? Just quit fucking with the World already. Take your over-seas military bases and set them up at home, 4 per state on top of what already exists.
Or better yet, get rid of the charade and let the Brass officially take power from the CEOs. Perhaps then the USA might have some universal health care coverage, even if its only at VA hospitals.
You mentioned Moby Dick and have done so many times before. As the USA continues to flail, hopefully, the rest of the World can stand by at a safe distance. What a whimpering patrhetic end. My long dead pop was a WW2 vet farm boy from Minnesota.
He won a Broze star for capturing and securing a couple dozen german soldiers, by himself while returning to base from a poker game. He would be ashamed of how it turned out. This is a group that has cut the beating hearts from living human victims. Our host has made very clear that he does not like Trump. I am not overly fond of him myself on a personal level, although I support some aspects of his agenda Ironically , I thought Obama was a much more likable character although I thought that he was ineffectual as a president What our host is after is something that no longer exists in America- the Truth.
This is something that the media simply cannot do. There were tens of contacts between Trump and his minions with the Russians before any investigation was started. So what is the complaint? Waiting patiently for the final act, the release of the Mueller Report. Jim why keep reading the New York Times? We all knew it was a propaganda rag when they helped get us into the Iraq war.
He will protest this assessment, but a writer cannot be the arbiter of what his readers perceive, any more than an artist can dictate what any particular viewer sees in a painting. Really surprising that a few of you have no problem with the politicization and hijacking of the FBI and CIA, and the arrantly dishonest behavior that entailed. They have become, in effect, a secret police operation. Sometimes are killed in a month. It is very disturbing Jim for I am seeing more and more people that absolutely do not care about anything at all anymore.
Apathy is rampant in our failed, self-centered poor excuse for a society. Delude yourself into thinking you can control an out of control situation.
Lose your head with the rest of the world. Right now we live in the early stages of a slow motion train wreck. Enormous forces are at play and the momentum is irresistible.
During the Roaring Twenties, many folks were doing so terrific in an environment of U. You are right, James, but the sewage Wash.
From the Congress, to the presidency, to the rest of the government, polarization and corruption abound. With the help of the Oligarchs of course. Thinking that we can get back to normalcy and resolve these problems, looks like magical thinking to me. Meanwhile, regulations are gutted, people are poisoned, laws ignored with impunity, corruption runs rampant, international relations are becoming wobbly or outright dangerous, local police forces increasingly militarized, etc.
I believe you guys are obsessively barking up the wrong tree staring at a Cheshire Cat? And speaking of police states… have you listened to Trump these past two years?? That guy would absolutely LOVE a police state—as long as he could control it. What has happened, JHK, is not that you have changed, but that a certain cohort among the liberal class have lost their minds, lost their moral compass and really, lost the plot.
Many British veterans of WW2 regret their service. And did American veterans fight and die to turn America over to Non-Whites? Sorry Janos but America has not been turned over to any other group, it has just degraded to the point where it is now being assaulted by other groups because of its weakness.
Self-centered, pleasure seeking decadents, who know not how to work to maintain a society cannot possibility defend this or any nation from any onslaught from without, much less from within AND without at the same time. Paulo, do you actually read what you write? It sounds like a long string of childish, play ground taunts and insults.
Do you have one charge of legal violations justifying the deep state removing a duly elected, sitting President? Apparently, you think these globalist backed pedophiles and traitors should have veto power over the American voter. Yes, the country is a mess — because the deep state you support messed it up, creating a total surveillance police state. But oh how they are shitting blood now that the apparatus is turned around and used against them.
These days, when one is SHOCKED if something goes right or someone does right, from whence comes the hope that any of the illegal actions surrounding the presidential election will reach some sort of catharsis? All I can imagine is that the Pequod will continue to send harpoons into the white whale, while it continues to batter its bleeding body against the ship.
Thus has come to the homeland its penchant for perpetual war. Eventually, I suppose, the ship will come apart, the whale will bleed out, and both will sink together into the sea of history. No conceivable winner here, because reality is not a novel.
Just pathetic players in a losing game and spectators with nothing better to do than watch it. One thing that will sink the Pequod and save the whale is a repudiation of the Progressive movement this fall in the ballot box. The loss of the ability to impeach Trump and the continuing deletion of Deep State operatives from D.
Will cause a major eruption of reaction from the Left financed by Georgie Porgie and his globalist allies. And the political salvation of the Constitution. And the so called conservative movement which conserves nothing must be repudiated as well.
Countries and borders are just fictions, etc. Can you see how the two narratives are reinforcing each other? Business loves this as they get cheap workers and they get to do what they want as well.
Socialism then comes to rescue to take care of their slaves. These people are the enemies of the United States. They want dissolution of the individual is no.
One concept that is embodied in the Constitution. They want the government making all the decisions. They want the elimination of individual liberty.
They are the enemy of what America stands for. It is a good synopsis of what has happened over the last two years in Washington as is alarming. What the Clintonoids have been able to do relative to consolidating power for themselves and their international taskmasters is amazing.
We came dangerously close to the elimination of the American ideal of individual liberty and the responsibility that goes along with it. This progressive element needs to be shown the door here and told to take their New World Order politics elsewhere. There can be no individualism as you understand it. Remember Culture is upstream from politics — and American had a Christian culture that restrained such rampant individualism to some extent at least. And Race is upstream from Culture….
And unfortunately, what was possible when we were three million people in a continent ripe for the plucking, inhabited by stone age savages who had no chance against us, is no longer possible. And what has already happened has an influence on what is now possible — rights be damned.
Another school shooting this AM. A quick acting teacher swatted the gun away from the shooter. Two injured, kudos to that teacher. Compulsory death penalty to all convicted school shooters, mass-murderers, and terrorists! Tell your elected officials to fucking do something already.
Is it only me who thinks the deep state is at war with the US population and that this is their method to get gun control? See above — Paulo, Georges????? You boys fishing in the toilet too? K-Dog is certain that the citizens of the U. They are always getting clubbed over the head by thugs as they put flowers in gun barrels. Nixon is always the ultimate evil and they are always the ultimate good. Regardless of whether Obama called the shots or just rubber stamped them, he was in the loop.
He told me several times with a straight face that he was brilliant not to imply that a dyslexic person could not be brilliant. You would think a brilliant person would pick up on this after the first hundred corrections, or so.
Your boss simply could not spell. Hitchens has a summary of why it does not exist here: He argues that it is used by parents and teachers to excuse their failure to teach their children properly. When I did my teacher training at the London Institute of Education I studied the teaching of literacy the tutor I think her name was Margaret Meek — it was a long time ago , who had published in the study, was adamant it was nonsense.
She said that it was just a label posh people use to avoid the shame of having children who were illiterate. She was also opposed to teaching by phonetics, but I think Hitchens favours the use of them as part of an overall approach.
From YT videos I know that she considers it the result of reification, the process of making a thing of something I suppose. I used to, and still do if I think about it, use the word to describe how many people seem to believe that by using a word it somehow takes on a real existence of its own.
It goes like this. Then if someone has a back ache you say it is because they have lumbago. Same thing with ADHD and dyslexia and a host of other things. This is how stupid we have become.
This sounds like a new form of alchemy or phrenology. Your boss simply could not spell………….. You are the great pooh-pooher of all accusations against the likes of Jimmy Savile, Bill Cosby, et al. Interestingly, I just looked up at my TV screen and saw Harvey Weinstein being marched away in chains. I also get the drift of your argument that we tend to make a non-existent thing real simply by giving it a name. This way lies madness. In any case, I could have great fun here describing in detail the symptoms of Mot Sregdor which I have done several times on these boards over the years.
Suffice to say, neither Hitchens nor the Dutch woman have sat across the desk from Mot and observed his most bizarre behavior. You have read me correctly on the witch hunts. The more I look at them the more incredible they appear. A lot of trivia, looking at women.
But the serious allegations are not believable in my opinion. The bad luck some girls have. The cops give her wire, it does not work, he apologizes for touching her breast when they met earlier. She catches it on her phone. They drop the case. She is paid off but bravely steps forward. It is not about the money, he has shattered her illusions of life. A tragic story about sweet girls being preyed upon by the Powerful, who are protected by their money.
How long are we going to tolerate this kind of thing? Everyone knew about it in Hollywood but nobody did anything. At last we are finally going to sort it out and bring about Real Change. As a keen observer of such things although not a scientist I say that both dyslexia and ADHD are real. They were not imagined into existence simply by creating a label for them.
Especially when you say lazy. I had 3 children and one of them was dyslexic. We all tried to get her ready for her weekly torture known as the spelling test but even if we got her to spell them right on Thursday evening, she would miss them the next day.
She also had trouble reading accurately and it seems the dyslexia involves not coping well with sequence. Like, you see the sequence of letters in order but the dyslexic sees them kind of scrambled.
In compensation, she learned to listen really well. Mr C has a number of agendas. Q-shtik mentioned another one. And anyone reading his posts will realise how dependent he is on Peter Hitchens for his thoughts. Sometimes PH shows wisdom — I liked his post on relations with Russia, which made sense. But sometimes PH also has agendas. My husband never mentions his dyslexia — he mentioned it a couple of times when we first met. Like your daughter he is intelligent and not lazy.
No-one who has spent the years that doctors spend working through nights and days with no sleep, can be accused of being lazy. In addition to a decade of studying medicine and 40 years of practising it, my husband also has two law degrees. He said he thought this is what thereafter made him unable to take science programmes seriously. I kid you not. Do not worry, sophia. Your daughter is neither lazy nor stupid.
Mr Coleman can be a bit of a tit. One has to ask, Trump being the indomitable battering ram that he is, and not easily intimidated, how long has this been going on? How many candidates have been sidelined by this consortium of agencies?
Assuredly, none of the politicians in DC could have withstood the deluge of condemnation that Trump did. That the main stream press is not letting go of their false narrative indicates to me it expects to win as it has in the past. The country could not go on pretending that all was fine, especially the outrage of offering La Clinton as opposing candidate, a woman who was seen as an outright fabricator and, along with her husband, as corrupt to the core.
Trump is undoubtedly as limited and disreputable as the MSM portray him, but his pertinacity is what has uncovered government license and vice. I have my knitting needles at hand and I say, let the proceedings begin! But if she really was Black, her art would all be masterpieces in the liberal eye.
And her fraud no fraud at all, just a misunderstanding. I guess you dont see the money that is crowd funded, on the various websites. As I watched and reflected on all the characters I met while living in Europe at the turn of the century the thought suddenly hit me:. NO, poor Johnny is negotiating [Pleading? DJT seems to have made a hasty move by killing the Iranian Nuclear Deal, but this seems to me to be completely out of character for HE the ultimate deal-maker. DJT, who was famous for staying at the table til the last dollar was rung-out — simply cratered this deal?
Again, I think not. I have not found a single person so far that has any doubts that Kerry and his buddies skimmed their share of the cash or does not see his current efforts to cover up his tracks as exactly that. The only problem that I see is that people do not really seem to care at all and once a few days go by most will forget or be distracted by another issue or better entertainment.
Only God can sort this out and until He does it will only get worse. A skeptical public, eh? Be that as it may: All I can say is: Secret police is right. Time to clean house. Who gets the honors? Who is there to muck out Deep State organizations but other Deep State organizations? My guess is they close ranks. The solution lies outside the Deep State.
The problem is popular opposition — ie Hillary voters — to taking corrective action. So, what happens now? My bet it gets swept under the rug. If it were otherwise Hillary would have been facing indictments by the bushel. The right and the left are both being chumped and continue to fight like the Kilkenny Cats. Of course in the meantime, the corruption goes merrily along.
It was simply a shot across the bow, as is everything Trump does, to intimidate and coerce and otherwise try to force the hand of the DOJ. That is itself a violation of the rule of law. Congress does NOT have the right to see documents in possession of a law enforcement agency about an active and ongoing criminal investigation. A second violation of the rule of law and possibly a violation of the separation of powers.
The constitutional crisis, if there is one, is being forced by an inexperienced, narcissistic and reckless man who became President by one of the strangest twists of circumstances in the history of US politics.
I am not saying the FBI is pristine and innocent of wrongdoing. It appears to many people that the President is the one guilty of slight of hand by creating boogeymen on whom he can blame any number of his defalcations including misconduct in office, the mishandling of the economy, foreign affairs, and the coming global depression and perhaps war.
This twist of circumstances was decades in the making. The systematic screwing of tens of millions of Americans was reckless and spectacularly stupid. Be forever thankful that the election of Trump gives for a change in direction. Look to history for examples for shit that rains down, the Bolsheviks in , the Stalinist purges in the s, the ascent of the National Socialists in Germany, the rise of Mao, the mass death of the Great Leap forward and Cultural Revolution, the rise of the Khmer Rouse and the blood-letting under Pol Pot.
Accelerated by a Democratic Party that could not compete raise money following traditional liberal policies which co-opted itself to corporatism. Then, aided by the Supreme Court, the Koch Brothers and other wealthy political donors, had the perfect storm. They control the workings of government — at least those who are elected.
We are in the grips of the super wealthy. Trump is one of them. Except where he can make a buck for himself. Then he is only out for himself. I have two theories as to the cause of these differences: Some brief moment after J. Here is a plan for the mid terms — answer every robo political telemarketing call with exactly the answers sought.
Do every thing possible to make the pollsters think every race is a dead heat so more money is injected into every race. Determine who spent the least amount of money and cast a vote accordingly. In the wake of the election do your best to keep a straight face and publicly opine that the candidates did not use media effectively to get the message out. Encourage more spending and vote for the candidate with the smallest expenditure again.
Two years in the house and six years in the senate. How could the congress possibly perform worse? I got yer term limits right here. Make em buy a brand new set of grifters every cycle.
Make brand recognition an historical ancecdote, politically and economically. Seventy percent of the economy is the consumer, The House of Representatives only think they hold the purse strings. Most likely to the dismay of many, including myself, Newt replied no, and Hannity agreed.
So, one must ask, why? Probably not, but the House may be putting more tension on the line to reel him in. Or maybe just float, like a bloated, hooked barracuda? The Dems want to swallow him up, like a tasty butter clam or barramundi.
Diseased rats, unwanted even by Davy Jones. What is a Whale but a Big Fish? But Moby Dick was also like a Dick, ramming ships with his blunt penile head. It all sounds very dangerous in either case.
Stay out of the water. Thus they are not Moby Dicks but Moby Dicklesses. Dick has never been more rare and thus never more valued and in demand. When someone calls you a Dick, thank them for the compliment. I think you should just fall back on your old, tried-and-true themes: Life is tough for us middle-aged straight white guys, huh? The Night of Totalitarianism and Shariah settles over Britain. Considering the number of Muslims in British prisons, this sentence may well end up being a death sentence.
So many liars and hidden agendas — so little time before the whole shebang slips beneath the foaming waves. The only question will be whether His Effulgence Hisself will have been wounded by harpoons so severely that he might never rise again. The gathering and sequestering of wealth is the surest way to power and influence… and handily enough, vice versa!
Okay then, it made an evil hiss. Just to be clear, I remind people that Trump was against this deal. He has plenty of other faults to harp on after all. These congress critters are voluntarily resigning in , leaving the corrupt money train, not interested in corrupt money. DC pols are not only interested in getting re-elected. There are more important things in life than money. So next week they will be submitting applications for the job of cook or cashier at Burger King?
Around 10 are women. Remember, Sikhs are an enemy of Muslims, who tortured one their gurus to death and tried to conquer them. So you have a conflict here between your support of Islam and support for other kinds of diversity. You have to choose. Like Burroughs said as a pedophile in Morocco, you have to choose either Moorish boys or Spanish boys. By being for everyone, you are simply for no one, except the class of Liberal Whites who are also for no one except themselves.
Remember the history of the British Empire ; whether Sikhs or Moslems or Hindus , Irish or Scots , the fellows in the funny costumes with guns seem to work well enough for whoever pays them. The hired gun with a pussy between her legs instead of a penis is going to start sending me birthday cards because we are pals now?
Likewise the flie I see in the ointment , math-wise , ideology aside , with Gestapo who wear pink underwear is this ;. If women enter the work force en masse that is roughly going to double the labor pool. The CIA was always doing some really nasty and underhanded and down right diabolical things , as far back as when it was called the OSS. What , did you think you could just use the Devil like a whore indefinitely? Which I suspect your very trumpeting it suggests. My pet dog would do the same.
Kesa, Yes, it was our Canadian friend who believes that canard. The list he references only lists deaths by profession. I have a buddy that was a senior airline pilot…believes the same crap. Police officers deal daily with the worst humanity has to offer. They guard me while I sleep. I have benefited all my life from the good work of police men and women. I understand the police want respect for what they do.
But respect is earned. No one should be dictating the terms by which others accord them respect. If you look the world round, you basically see two different kinds of police. One kind protects the public — this kind is associated with freedom. The other kind protects itself against the public. That kind are cowards.
In the USA, police are trained to be cowards. Daniel Shaver was seen with a pellet gun on a hotel balcony in Mesa, Arizona, and someone phoned it in to the police. The responding police officers did what they were trained to do: The police officer who responded to the Toronto van attack had far greater reason to fear for his safety than the officer who shot Daniel Shaver — unlike at the hotel, there was a chain of bodies littering the ground.
The van attacker alleged to be one Alek Minassian further directly provoked the officer by gesturing as if reaching for a gun and pretending to aim at the officer.
The officer kept his cool, and secured Alek Minassian alive. If Minassian had had accomplices, he was kept alive to give information about them. The death of Daniel Shaver is evidence of a police force trained to protect itself at the expense of the public: The apprehension of Alek Minassian represents a police force trained to accept risks in order to protect the public: Do you really not believe police work is dangerous? I mean that would contradict your valid point about the bravery of the Canadian officer.
Our police are trained to be cowards now, putting their own lives as the first if not only priority. Thus they shoot Golden Retrievers who approach them wagging their tails. Take no chances — everyone is an enemy.
It may not be true of course but it fits my narrative. Elrond, I cannot speak for the training that is currently in vogue…I have no idea…it is also a mystery to my younger brother, the retired police chief.
Something is going on, and I know not what. I have no excuses or reasons for what is happening, other than to suggest it might not be indicative of police everywhere. Do point out to me where in the U.
One could just as well deem the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and who was Jack the Ripper to be active and ongoing criminal investigations. Personally, I can cleanly, at the level of handshakes, trace the Black and White Projects to the beginning of the 12th century, and specifically the Black Project to the creation of the Order of the Templars in , and the White Project to , when the Knights Hospitaller was created, also known as the Order of Malta.
The Red Project appeared in , when Giordano Pierleoni created the Commune of Rome, the intellectual leader of which, and accordingly the founder of the Red World Project, was Arnold of Brescia. But the true fathers of the White Project, the abbot of Saint-Denis Suger and the abbot of Cluny, Peter the Venerable did not allow burning him at the stake as Arnold of Brescia was burned.
Already from this passage we can clearly see the connection between the World Projects and the European educational system and the Problem of Universals, from which the Western scientific method and two fundamentally different education systems were born: These two systems became the basis of the German education system, which really had a huge impact on the formation of the education system in Russia. In parallel with these systems in Western Europe, the Bologna system existed, the distinguishing feature of which was that in Italy, where the Bologna system arose, universities were originally secular institutions, while the Sorbonne and the dialectical unity of gymnasiums and real schools, respectively, grew out of Catholic schools that more correctly should be called Christian, since Catholicism did not yet create an anti-Orthodox ideology, and only the Black Project had already acquired distinct anti-Christian features.
And there is no correlation between the struggle of the World Projects and the struggle of gymnasiums with real schools, especially if we consider that the Bologna system played a role of guerilla detachment in these fights, into which many deserters and marauders from gymnasiums and real schools merged. World Projects influenced the way children were distributed between gymnasiums and real schools, that is, how this process was influenced by social, religious and national factors.
And now in Facebook there are fierce disputes on this topic, and I already see quite a lot of participants in these disputes, with whom it is useless to argue, it only remains fighting with them. The most interesting thing is that the gymnasium and real systems of education were inherited from Tsarist Russia almost without changes by the USSR and continued their rivalry not only in pedagogy but also in literature: And belonging to the Red and Black world projects in a chemically pure form was manifested in the USSR in the way social origin and nationality influenced the enrollment in the university.
In addition, it should be noted that the Russian education system before it was modernized using the patterns of the German gymnasium, in addition to Mikhail Lomonosov, who was the first Russian University, through the library of Ivan the Terrible and the Slavic-Greek-Latin Academy, the University of Constantinople had a huge impact.
Little is known about it except that the scientific method was articulated there, and through the library of Matius Corvinus, Tycho Brahe, Johann Kepler and Isaac Newton, it formed the English educational system. Thus, the paradox is that before Russia began to copy the German educational system in the 19th century, the Russian system was very similar to the English and American, especially the Ivy League.
But in England, after the United States gained independence and founded the Ivy League, the first ambassador of the United Kingdom in China, George Macartney, after returning home, insisted on the modernization of the English educational system in the image and likeness of the Chinese system. As a result, a system of grammar schools was created, the pupils of which were selected on the basis of the Chinese system of examinations, which makes it possible to unambiguously identify George Macartney as an adept of the White Project.
And immediately everything crumbled, including Oxford and Cambridge, and Cambridge not only in England, but also in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where both Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located. Hillary Clinton, who is still at the helm of the Deep State, during elections, was campaigning under frankly anti-Christian slogans, in particular, promising to oblige all American churches to marry homosexuals.
The European Union, that in its constitution is forbidding the mentioning of the historical role of Christianity in the formation of European culture, has invested tremendous funds in her electoral fund, and Saudi Arabia, which just funded the genocide of Christians in Syria.
And yet she lost despite her tremendous financial superiority, colossal ballot falsifications and, most importantly, the application of 25th frame technology! The elections of showed the utter futility of these technologies as applied to the working class, and the only positive result of these elections for the Black Project was that graduates of colleges and universities remain vulnerable to Clinton propaganda for at least 10 years after graduation. How, indeed, did this well-connected Sorceress and Mesmerist…lose the election?
Maybe she allowed DJ Don to win this round. Playing the long game? I communicated with many of them during the election campaign and I got the impression that it is the 25th frame technology or brainwashing, since any mentioning of the crimes of Hillary Clinton caused their eyes to glaze over, and for some time they simply loose the ability to communicate and perceive new information. And besides the obvious effects of English , I had the impression that the very methodology of teaching in prestigious colleges, contrary to students will, makes a person an easy pray of this propaganda.
Social Darwinism in such colleges was introduced relatively recently from the pitch of the Black Project and high prestige of those colleges makes it especially cruel, forcing students to fall into depression and causing depletion of the bodily defenses. Eczema and depression become a common thing among students and not surprisingly in this state they become especially suggestible, in particular in natural science faculties, which teach using the methods of real schools.
In particular, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, that is, in the main source of highly-trained professionals for the US military-industrial complex, this phenomenon recently acquired so catastrophic scale that it became the subject of discussion on the main Clinton channel:. In my opinion MIT became the victim of a colossal experiment after in the early 70s MIT students actively participated in anti-war protests, including demanding the refusal of their institute to participate in the development of the technology of multiple individual-guided warheads MIRV.
On the other side, the gymnasium system of training for example, in Harvard was either incapable of providing the necessary level of brainwashing, or as a gymnasium system in the Soviet school of the ss even provided additional resistance to such influences. In other words, all this political theater is an exquisitely detailed, swirling overlay on a quite solid substrate that will really be the actuator driving things.
One of the ideas presented was the end was baked into the beginning, at least into what we experience as the physical realm. Mystery was an intregal part of human life for most of our history.
We know the course since Galileo became adept with the telescope, humans began to believe that mystery could be banished from our experience. But it does so in a way that is impossible to calculate for an organism that is as complicated as a human being.
These laws may have originally been decreed by God, but it appears that he has since left the universe to evolve according to them and does not now intervene in it. Beauty and mystery are entangled. The hubris of the enlightenment has displaced the sun and installed the human as the center of the universe.
It seems that entropy reigns supreme, or would unless the universe was periodically reenergized by and from its Source. Without that, it would have all run down by now. Funny and damning review of the Churchill movie.
Of course Alba thought it was very real, and entirely likely that Churchill met a coal black classics quoting Black Englishman in the Underground who helped him to decide national policy.
For her sake if not for ours…. Yer man put in a good performance of Being Winston but the film was a joke. The liberties it took with the truth gave artistic license a bad name.
No, you thought it was completely reasonable that Churchill would ride the tube now that is bollocks right away and that said tube would be full of minorities. I said there had been black people in London for some considerable time before the s, which is an entirely different matter, not that there was any likelihood of Churchill jumping out of a chauffeur-driven car to take a culturally scenic trip on the tube.
You can go back and look it up yourself. You also said Blacks have been in England since the 11th century. One is reminded again of the intersection of general White obsession with Blacks and the ever present well nigh universal feminine confusion. Meanwhile, Michael Jackson was bleaching himself White in a desperate, illicit attempt to become a White Man. But of course when questioned about his activities with little boys, he invoked Black privilege and used the R word against his accusers.
My confusion will never be any match for yours, despite your indeterminate age. Very small numbers, eh?
