Straightforward, clarifying words, as ISIS terrorist and all ’round sweetie Allison Fluke-Ekren awaits sentencing.
UD ain’t sure why garden-variety mentally challenged racist anti-semites like Ye, who will never do anything, get all the attention, while an existentially imperiling American like F-E gets quietly carted off to jail without anyone paying her the sort of attention she deserves if we’re going to protect ourselves from our bloodiest.
Kanye is safely all over the place (Christian/ Midsommarian/ Satanistian/ Nurembergian… Next up: Quilting Bees), while F-E has displayed, over decades, remarkable ideological stability, discipline, and resilience; she’s a real, highly trained, soldier, and she wants to kill all of us. She has killed quite a few of us, and UD thinks a long jailhouse interview, conducted by someone like Stephen Biddle, would be a service.
For UD, this is the most important exchange, so far, reported to the January 6 committee.
From Lara Trump’s giggling dismissal of a reporter’s question, long ago, about violent chants at Trump rallies (People are just “having fun.”) to Eric Greitens’ RINO butchery (Like Lara Trump, he says the ad was all in fun.), violence – and now escalating violence – has run through Trumpworld. I think we owe a debt of gratitude to John Eastman for cutting out the all in fun bullshit and simply stating the obvious. Far from disavowing violence, Eastman here schools Herschmann on the excellent history of violence in America. Indeed you can sort of see Eastman shrug and then smile patiently at Herschmann as he explains, in the way of Robespierre explaining things to less bloodthirsty comrades, that you’ve got to break some eggs to make an omelette.
LAST two people I thought would divorce!
So. Let me tell you the truth. I’m not surprised. The mistake Murdoch made this time was marrying someone so old. He’s on a quest never to die, via marriage with the younger set. (One of his models seems to be Sumner Redstone.) This latest pairing, with Hall already in her sixties, made no sense to me, given the sex serum regimen he’s on. Number Five will be in her thirties, and this one will guarantee that Murdoch will never die.
Only two channels these days: You can watch Johnny Depp fall to pieces, or watch Vladimir Putin fall to pieces.
High-steppin’ strutters now limping into old age, grandiose world-conquerors who’ve lost it all, both of these woman-haters currently bloat and tremble on the global stage as their badly over-played machismo bites them in the butt. Women, says Depp, famously, are “cum-guzzlers”; Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton represent, in their freakish rise to male power, a personal insult to Vlad.
To be sure, one of these people might destroy the world, while the other has merely a film career to nuke (if you want to throw in Will Smith – currently staging a reincarnation in India – go ahead), but both offer the riveting and enlightening spectacle of the power of delusion and the delusions of power. Putin pursues a hopeless war; Depp presses one hopeless lawsuit after another, with profound carnage along the way. Our role is to be disgusted (and, in the case of Putin, afraid) as we fail to take our eyes off of the very worst outcomes of a reactionary ethos.
[T]here’s also the element of his personal hatred for Hillary Clinton, and it’s not just hate her. I think it’s like Hillary Clinton was impossible as a U.S. president. To imagine that he would have to deal with her as a senior partner, a woman—I mean, he already has to deal with [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel. The lengths that he has gone to to assert his masculine dominance over Merkel is amazing. He literally sicced dogs on her. He has made indecent jokes in front of her, just to try to discomfort her. He hates dealing with a strong woman, and one as president of the United States would be just awful.
Zemmour is every bit as much of a violent nihilist as his loverboy Putin; these tiny Napoleons both dream of blowing everything up. (Which reminds me: Congrats, Vlad, for reducing Kharkiv to rubble!)
Putin’s getting his wish in this regard, but the world just might be able to stop him.
As for Zemmour, his poll numbers are tanking. There aren’t enough violent nihilists in France to put him over the top.
Stephen Cohen. If you seek his monument, look around you in Kharkiv.
As the race concluded, “a car fishtailed into onlookers — including young children — after it crossed the finish line. There were no barriers beyond the finish line.”
Yeah, cuz once the cars are done, they go from 100 mph to 0 in seconds so you don’t need barriers there.
Two kids were killed and five people are seriously injured, including a three-month-old.
And big rich Norway couldn’t find a way to put him in prison for a long time? Is it Norway’s policy to wait until radicalized career criminals kill five people and injure three others to jail them? How long will he stay incarcerated this time? Six months?
