There's A Very Dynamic Synergy Going On Now With Online Left Media, #BoycottMSNBC Is Trending Too.

This feeling has been present with me for a long time now. I've been trying to pinpoint it but can't really. It must have been around the time of the 2015-2016 Democratic Primary that it began to become more apparent and coalesce as a tangible thing to me. Perhaps two of the biggest examples have been the success of Chapo Trap House and the Jimmy Dore Show, both unapologetic, hilarious and radical shows (the former more dashingly radical than the latter) with tons of subscribers.

the Durham Mueller investigations of the spooks expand further

Happy Halloween to all…a day for Spooks to have a bit of fun at our expense; so how fitting a report this is today. Part I was here (Cafe version, C99% version).  I know many of you know an order of magnitude more than I do about all this,  but this issue is of prime importance to what remains of the shreds of Democracy in Amerika to me.

Tulsi Deserves It: She Pretty Much Doxxed Harris

Let's face it, people. Tulsi was completely out of line.

Bringing up a Democratic candidates ACTUAL RECORD on a debate state is no different than Doxxing. Completely unfair and unprovoked attack - I mean, what did Kamala's record ever actually do to Tulsi?

And if you don't believe that Tulsi doxxed Harris, I give you all the Twitter activity of Russian Trolls pushing Tulsi. QED.

who was lying about Dead Ducks: gina haspel, julian barnes or MI6?

can’t get enough of that novichok, novichok, novichok...♫

Oops! New York Times corrects Skripal story, says no ‘dead ducks’ or ‘sick kids’ from ‘Novichok’, 6 Jun, 2019,

I think this article in the New Yorker is worth your attention

The Making of the Fox News White House

Can't excerpt, it's too long and I am only one third through reading it. But I thought you might be better equipped than me to 'essay it'. It's worth it to do so, right?

There is something about Greta van Susteren in it. I remember her when she was still 'non-foxidized'. That's a long, long time ago.

At long last, I simply do not care

I've come to the conclusion that the corner of the internet into which I have been shoved is the practical equivalent of a fantasy role playing game. That is, my impact on politics in the real world from posting here (and c99p is the best) is about the equal of the impact I would have playing Fortnite. That is, zero. This lack of impact has been caused by the purchase and consolidation of both news outlets and political parties by the billionaire class.

Corporate Censorship in the Age of American Aggression

The meme of fake news is very effective. There are so many lies told again and again and again that they are accepted as truth. You now select your own truth. Examples that come to mind: the DNC HACK (not leak), recently elected Maduro is a dictator, Russia is hacking our election and they poisoned a spy in Britain, Assange is a Russian agent, Assad gases his people so we MUST bomb him, Iran the aggressor put their country in the middle of OUR military bases and on top of OUR oil, Israel is our ally and is for peace and stability in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia must battle the evil Houthis who are working with Iran to overthrown the crown prince, and on and on...
