Good morning, kids. Thursday and in gliding by AOL Puffington, (yeah, I still have an AOL e-mail account after 20 years, so sue me) two headlines jumped out at me that are both illustrative of the agitprop whorehouse the media is as well as set up the top story. The first is actually a USA Todaypiece of turgid, pulp science fiction that makes Plan 9 From Outer Space look like 2001: A Space Odyssey in comparison:
You’re more likely to die from COVID-19 in the U.S. than other high income countries amid omicron, data suggests
Complete horseshit. The second from Yahoo News is so laughable, not only for citing one of the most buffoonish poseurs in TV history, but for such transparently propagandistic verbiage that even the headline writer at Pravda during the Brezhnev era would’ve rejected it.
Geraldo Rivera supports Biden’s plan to supply drug addicts with clean paraphernalia to save lives
Ho. Lee. Fook. I’ve seen headlines from Nazi-era newspapers after the Stalingrad disaster that seemed more believable in painting the 6th Army as victorious than the aforementioned dreck from Jerry Rosenblatt or whatever his Whoopi name is via Yahoo. Assuming you’ve stopped laughing and then vomiting from that, let us proceed. There’s no point in excerpting either, but for those keen on self-abuse knock yourselves out and click the links. The latter is both damage control for yet another disastrous policy, causing the junta to both backtrack faster than a moonwalking Michael Jackson going up a down escalator as well as an attack on Marsha Blackburn for holding up a spending bill that includes this crap. The former, patently bullshit yet only marginally more subtle, is just more psychological warfare fear porn to scare the populace into wanting to continue lockdowns, face diapering and demonization of vaccine refuseniks in the face of the growing cries from all quarters to end the past 730-day-and-counting “two week” dystopian nightmare.
The operating word there is dystopian, or more precisely Orwellian. Along with everything else transmitted over the airwaves, internet and in print from the approved house organs of the anti-American pro-globalist Great Reset Axis, they’re absolute disinformation, misinformation and outright lies. The problem here is anyone who calls them out on it or attempts to counter the message now has an official target on their backs, figuratively and as history has shown us time and again, eventually, literally.
MDM isn’t the latest flavor of fentanyl, produced by the Communist Chinese regime for sale to Mexican drug cartels, and now the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18 to 45. No, MDM stands for mis- dis- and mal-information, the latest government acronym from which you must be protected.
DHS’ latest “Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland,” released Monday, has much to say about the dangers of American minds being polluted with MDM, and curiously little to say about actual terror threats.. . .
. . . under the latest iteration, DHS is no longer concerned solely with enemy lies spread abroad, but increasingly with information spread by “domestic threat actors” (read: American citizens). And no longer are they merely concerned with disinformation, false material spread to manipulate an opponent, but with misinformation, which DHS considers information that is false but not intended to cause harm, and “mal-information,” which means information which is true but the government considers harmful anyway.
This raises the question of who put a government intelligence and law enforcement agency in the position of declaring not only what is true or false but also determining whether information is good or harmful for consumption by free citizens. Of course, no law prohibits American citizens of spreading information of any kind, whether true or false. . .
. . . Covering thought policing under the rubric of counterterrorism has another advantage too. It changes the discussion from whether a given idea is true or false, to whether it is safe or dangerous. Have concerns about election integrity, [Chinese] COVID-19 mandates, or school boards? You better shut up; such ideas are inspiring to terrorists.
Funny how the goons who hate-shake’d Andy Ngo and have an actual open hit out on him as well as the mostly peaceful terrorists from Burn Loot Murder Inc. who laid waste to dozens of cities and towns in the summer of 2020 are nowhere to be found on the DHS terrorism watch list. Joe Rogan? Madison Cawthorn and Donald Trump? James O’Keefe? Dinesh D’Souza? Louis Gohmert (and others spied on by Capitol PD)? Parents at school board meetings? Teachers brave enough to speak out against crackpot Jive Kampf theory? And so on and so on and scooby dooby dooby.
The combined federal law enforcement and intelligence entities, as Kyle Shideler alludes to in his piece excerpted above, whether out of ineptitude, inertia, or even worse, ideology, have dropped the ball time and time and time again in stopping real terrorism, foreign and domestic, from killing and maiming American citizens. Dubya and for sure Clinton are no saints, and 9/11 should have been a wake up call not only about the threat of Islamo-Fascism but in the government’s total deaf, dumb and blindness to it. But Obama, in purging the military and installing an avowed communist and crypto-Muslim in John Brennan as the head of the CIA, was the bitter end.
Seriously, the fact that a federal law enforcement agency is even issuing guidelines to go after citizens in direct contravention of Amendment Number 1, the freedom of speech by labeling them as potential terrorists or promoters of terrorism/sedition/insurrection/what have you for merely objecting to or going against official government policies is a massive warning bell. If it isn’t, you are not paying attention.
Meanwhile, in another sector of the Russian Front, as statues of everyone from Robert E. Lee to Teddy Roosevelt to Sacagawea with Louis & Clark to Mahatma-freakin’-Gandhi are being demolished, the bonfires are being lit. There goes Huckleberry Finn, there goes Maus, and there goes . . .
“I took a pack of Tarot cards. I had found out that they were very superstitious. On arrival at a commune I would ask for their astrological birth signs and tell them mine,” Jillian Becker described her process of investigating the Marxist terrorist Baader-Meinhof Gang. . .
. . .The answers went into Becker’s book, Hitler’s Children: The Story of the Baader-Meinhof Terrorist Gang, and later into the archives of her organization: The Institute for the Study of Terrorism. The Institute closed down due to lack of funding a decade before 9/11 and the collected archive covering a range of Soviet-backed terror groups around the world was transferred over to the University of Leicester. Now it’s gone missing even as the university has made the shift over to politically convenient wokeness. And Jillian Becker fears the worst. . .
. . . Beyond playing fortune teller to Marxist terrorists, Becker mentions “picking the documents out of the rubble of bombed PLO headquarters” in Lebanon.
“They were blood stained and soiled but legible,” she recalls. “They went into transparent plastic covers to be photocopied before they could be translated and the translations filed. That was almost the only documentation there was about the PLO years in Lebanon to help me write that history.”
That led to her next book on terrorism, The PLO: The Rise and Fall of the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Those PLO documents, like so much else in the archive, are gone.
What happened to them?
Two years ago, the University of Leicester informed a Republican activist seeking information about the archive that they had no idea where it was. An extensive search turned up nothing.
A response from a sociology professor informed her that the university, “prioritises collections in their care which are most pertinent to contemporary research and teaching”, that a search for “material relating to the IST proved inconclusive” and that any material from the Institute for the Study of Terrorism “located in future will be appraised by a professionally-qualified archivist and, if appropriate, transferred to the care of our University Archives and Special Collections. . . “
. . . Becker blames the “woke academics” at the University of Leicester who “threw away the archive of the Institute for the Study of Terrorism (IST) — compiled painstakingly over many years and often at personal risk by me and my fellow researchers — as unwanted trash.”
In her latest update she concludes that the archive. “recording thousands of instances of the savage crime of terrorism — almost all of it by organizations on the Left, with support from the USSR and some from Communist China, through the Cold War years 1968-1990 — was an affront to the ideology of the ‘woke.'”
Becker sees this as part of a larger great erasure of information, ideas, and the entire western past. “Most universities in the Western world now are conscientiously trying to erase history.”
As an aside, it should be noted that Antifa here and around the world is the creation of Baader-Meinhoff and their allies/associates. Its leaders either came directly from or were trained by and are associates of BM cadres. Don’t be fooled by the freaks in the Portland PD mugshots; they are being directed and funded by organizations that have left a trail of violence and mass murder across the world for over 50 years. And what they started back then is coming home to roost right here and right now.
The only difference is at the very least the junta controlling own damned government will not lift a finger to touch them and perhaps are actively giving them aid and comfort as a means of political repression of the heretofore law abiding citizenry. But I digress. The erasure of our history goes hand in hand with the silencing of any and all voices of protest and opposition.
In Soviet America, Rubicon cross you!

It doesn’t happen when people have an agenda to justify their actions, as is the case with many of leaders, or to prop up their expert status, or like Dr. Tony Fauci, both.
