BOB DYLAN PRESENTS PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACK "MURDER MOST FOUL"


Some learned friends of mine, bigger Dylan fans than I, are saying this is Dylan's epitaph for America. Not sure I'm feeling that, exactly... but it sure is something.

SO I GUESS IT'S A FIRM "NO" ON THAT PARDON, THEN?

ASSANGE DROPS NUCLEAR BOMBSHELL

Per RawStory (and countless others):
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims President Donald Trump dangled a pardon through a Republican lawmaker if he agreed to cover up Russia’s involvement in 2016 election hacking. 
Assange’s lawyer Edward Fitzgerald told a London court Wednesday that former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher had passed along the offer in exchange for testimony that Russia had nothing to do with DNC leaks — and the allegation shocked legal experts and other social media users.
The expected, Trump-style "I barely even know the guy" non-denial denial popped up less than 24 hours after the story of his criminal perfidy first broke. 

Watch where this story goes, how it builds and breaks, because I have a feeling it's going to be one of those predictive stories that foretells how the rest of the dominoes will fall, or whether they will fall at all.

NYT DOC EXPLORES NEW FASCIST INTERNATIONAL(E) DISINFO OPS

First up, meet the KGB spies who invented "Fake News" (then referred to as "Active Measures") during the final decade of the Soviet Union.


Follow that up with a look at the current state of the New Fascist International(e)'s ongoing multi-pronged worldwide War On Truth.


Now it's time to learn about "Operation Infektion", which explores how Russia came to perfect the art of asymmetrical information warfare, and explores some of the methadologies and philosophies in play.


And, finally, there's this segment on the Seven Commandments of Fake News.


This video series, even though it comes from the mother of all mainstream sources, the New York Times,  offers up significant, high quality food for thought and worthwhile information for the few remaining non-co-opted, serious-minded conspiracy researchers and theoreticians out there who continue to fight the good fight, and who try to be honest with their readers, their co-researchers, and most importantly, with themselves.

It isn't easy these days. In fact, the information contained in the four videos above goes a long way towards explaining exactly why it isn't easy these days, what with the so-called "alternative media" landscape being so heavily targeted for co-option, manipulation and takeover by actual criminal, behind-the-scenes power-brokers who have managed to convince the wooliest sheeple on the Animal Farm that they're the only ones who know what's really going on, because instead of believing everything they see on CNN, the Washington Post or the New York Times, they believe everything they hear on InfoWars.com, or from Lou Dobbs, or from whatever full-blown fascist talking head it is that they get their daily supply of talking points.

Anyway, if you're one of the hundred or so people out there still bothering to check out my blog for some reason, please watch these videos and help to spread the word about them. They're quite good.

SENATE VOTES TO ALLOW IMPEACHED PRESIDENT* TRUMP TO SERVE OUT TERM


You know what today's Senate "acquittal" of Donald Trump most reminds me of? The concept of jury nullification as it was practiced in the Deep South during Jim Crow, where juries would refuse to convict White people for crimes committed against Black people, no matter how awful the crime, or how obvious the guilt. 

That, my friends, is what the Republicans just did. Make no mistake. Today, the one-time Party of Lincoln stand exposed as the moral equivalent of, and the heirs apparent to, history's weakest, most pathetic ghosts.
