Insects Are Dying En Masse, Risking 'Catastrophic' Collapse Of Earth's Ecosystems

We’re committing mass suicide as fast as we can!!!

Insects Are Dying En Masse, Risking 'Catastrophic' Collapse Of Earth's Ecosystems

There have been warning signs for years about plummeting insect populations worldwide, but the extent of the potentially “catastrophic” crisis had not been well-understood — until now.

US Navy warships just challenged China with a South China Sea sail-by operation, and Beijing is furious

Well here we go. We’ve need needling China for a while now. This is the news that’s getting buried in all the revelations of Dimocritic malfeasance and criminality.

US Navy warships just challenged China with a South China Sea sail-by operation, and Beijing is furious

The US Navy sent two guided-missile destroyers to challenge China in the South China Sea, and Beijing is outraged.

FBI Testimonies on Carter Page FISA Reveal Broken Oversight Process

This frame up is falling apart. More proof of the lies and crimes that our prior president, the Dimocritic candidate, Dimocritic Party, and our ‘intelligence’ agencies tried to pull to rig the election. None of their ‘so called ‘evidence’ is usable. This is a long article, but mandatory reading for everyone who really cares about the way these bastards tried to pull off a soft coup in this country. There is so much coming out it’s getting hard to keep track of it all.

Some Words About the Nature of Pinocchios and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Well, first of all, Witches are made of wood, just like Pinocchio.

It's a fair cop.

But I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don't have access to public health is wrong. And I think it’s wrong that [1] a vast majority of the country doesn’t make a living wage, I think it’s wrong that [2] you can work 100 hours and not feed your kids. I think it’s wrong that [3] corporations like Walmart and Amazon can get paid by the government, essentially experience a wealth transfer from the public, [4] for paying people less than a minimum wage. And it not only doesn't make economic sense, but it doesn't make moral sense and it doesn't make societal sense. - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Ta-Nehisi Coates

The Lady in the Green Astroturf Dress

Its alarming to watch the astrorturf (massive free media) celebrity, AOC, steal the clothes of the 50 year old environmental movement and its ten year old Green New Deal. Naive environmentalists are surprised and delighted that the corporate media is actually reporting on the topic, and do not ask the vital questions of why publicity is given and where AOC is taking the discussion.

The Streisand Effect

If you're not familiar with the concept it goes a little like this- In 2003 Barbra Streisand sued a photographer over pictures of her Malibu Estate, claiming "invasion of privacy". The instant reaction was to hugely increase the popularity of the image and doxx her address to anyone who cared to know.

The coinage itself came from Mike Masnick of TechDirt, a site I read several times daily and frequently cite (among many flaws of written English currently is a failure to correctly use the homophones 'cite', 'site', and 'sight', don't get me started about the proper use of 'affect', which is to pretend, and 'effect', which is to cause), in a 2005 discussion of a takedown notice issued to urinal.net, which naturally enough specialized in pictures of urinals, by a resort that was unhappy to be included in a compendium of male restroom plumbing.

Worked about as well for them as it did for Streisand.

Anyway, I am happy to report Comrades that our Socialist Revolution has received a great, and totally unintended, boost from Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio and his capitalist Republican running dogs.

Joe Biden reminded of past 'humanitarian' actions after he blasts Maduro over aid block

Joe Biden needs to shut his war-loving, coup-supporting mouth.

Joe Biden reminded of past 'humanitarian' actions after he blasts Maduro over aid block

A former US Vice President has urged Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro to step aside for a “democratic transition.” Twitter, however, doubted Joe Biden’s ‘humanitarian’ motivation, pointing out his warmongering past.
