      @ lobo91:

      Thanks for a new thread, lobo. Did anybody notice we were gone? It feels like the first year of high school. Or maybe its bad news blog fatigue? Although AOC is fast becoming a cartoon character in a drunken stupor of “Look at ME.”

      Here’s the Antifa violent yob.

      She’s someones created creature. No way a bartender with a history of stealing tips just managed to magically produce the money to run for political office. She’s been bankrolled (to a illegal degree I’m positive.) There really needs to be an investigation into where all the money came from to get her started. I know my local politicians are all independently wealthy. You don’t run unless you have a massive starting bankroll. We all know they are financed by Soros front groups but this lunatic AOC seems to have just come out of no where and had all the money she’d ever need.

      @ Deplorable Martian Overlord:

      One of the main reasons why an unqualified Trudeau was elected was due to funding from wealthy American foundations. The Tides Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, Soros private and public money, etc. I used to have a long list. This money went strategically into areas across Canada where Conservatives were in power and spread advertising and campaign money towards AOC type door knocking. Straight out of Obama era disinformation and Alinsky organizing. You can hire a lot of people under the table to ‘volunteer’ and leave no trail. Newspaper ads and strategic ‘opinion op eds’ influence votes.
      The United Steelworkers Union reps have been organizing up here for many years. They put small companies out of business and then go after the larger ones.

      I’m not blaming the U.S. for brainwashed Canadian Socialists, but important elections are not cheaply run and won.

There’s more I can’t remember off the top of my head because it’s bedtime, but I know I posted pics of their office ‘front’, etc. I’m not sure these are Soros’ creatures, tho, altho they have the same agenda I don’t think they have the same wallet.

      They not only distort the results, but /I’ve seen them outright LIE about facts. Yet people will think they are getting some guidance about various political blogs in particular.

      https://financialtribune.com/articles/business-and-markets/98681/eu-says-instex-operational

      International banking transactions for trade now go through the SWIFT system. It has been a safe and reliable way for nations to trade without getting ripped off. When Trump sanctions a country, afaik he shuts down their transactions through the SWIFT system. So an untrustworthy State like Iran can’t sell their oil directly. They end up going largely through Turkey and can use oil for gold kinds of transactions. Then they can sell the gold for dinars which pays the salaries of gov’t workers or whatever. A lot of whatever I believe.

      INSTEX is the new official trading system for nations to formally operate outside the SWIFT system. Signatories are France, Germany, England, and IRAN. China, Russia, and a large number of nations are expected to sign on. It won’t happen overnight, but it’s already being used. That means Trump cannot easily sanction the Commies and Islamist nations. It is a movement away from the dollar, but none of those other currencies have the depth of the dollar. It is useful to know these things that the msm doesn’t want to bother your pretty little heads about.

      Nike, the athletic shoe giant, has pulled a product off the shelves in response to a storm of social-media protest.

      You might think this is about Nike pulling those Betsy Ross sneakers when Colin K. cracked the whip. You would be wrong.

      Nike, the athletic shoe giant, has pulled a product off the shelves in response to a storm of social-media protest. The product was a sneaker collaboration with sportswear brand Undercover, whose principal designer, Jun Takahashi, published these unspeakable words on Twitter: “No extradition. Go Hong Kong!”

      Nike says it made the decision “based on feedback from Chinese consumers.” Just so.

      If I were a stockholder, I’d be selling. God knows, I ain’t buying their shoes (speaking of shopping [yenta]!)

      Arizona Pulls State Incentives for Nike Factory After It Nixes ‘Offensive’ Fourth of July Sneaker

      The governor of Arizona has withdrawn state incentives for Nike to set up a new manufacturing site after the shoe company reportedly pulled a Fourth of July sneaker that it said featured an “offensive” older version of the national flag.

      Less than 24 hours earlier, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey had welcomed the approval of a Nike Air Manufacturing Innovation in West Valley, reportedly worth $184 million.

      Then he read a Wall Street Journal article which reported Nike had nixed its Independence Day sneakers because Colin Kaepernick said that the 13-starred Betsy Ross flag was “offensive.”

      Writing on Twitter in a series of posts in the early morning of July 2, Ducey said, “Nike has made its decision, and now we’re making ours.”

      “I’ve ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars under their discretion that the State was providing for the company to locate here. Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history.”

      I just want to know whether the platoon members who set him up will now feel the weight of justice on their necks for giving false witness?

      Any other Platoon members getting their records marked for offering dishonour to enemy dead? Not that those enemy have any honour worth a toss.

      Still in COIN Ops one has to maintain one’s honour even in the face of gross enemy dishonour to maintain our moral superiority and give the enemy no moral ammunition to fire at us in the PsyOps battle of hearts and minds.

      As much as the system allows. Personally, I think the prosecutor should be busted for misconduct and dishonorably discharged (if that’s an option, I don’t know). This was a railroad job. What happens to the men who made the original accusations? Who wants to serve with them, now? Gallagher may have been an SOB to serve under but this was judicial fragging.

      Comrade Nicky Hager’s latest book Hit and Run was , co-authored by journey Jon Stephenson -detailed a NZSAS raid on a Taliban village.

      Stephenson was canny enough to ask Hager to hold publication until a court of enquiry into the raid was complete. Hager of course was looking for click bait from the comrades and book sales and published anyway before the facts were even in.

      It details NZ SAS raids on villages in Afghanistan where the Taliban / local villagers giving shelter to the terrorists ended up with 6 KIA and 15 WIA. It eventually turned out that the NZSAS were their usual disciplined selves and the only KIAs were the armed Taliban Commander his two armed troopers and their immediate porter party moving out of the village. Alas a US attack helicopter was operating that night above the village and the gunner got disorientated and staffed the houses of Taliban civilian supporters killing both several other armed Taliban and civilians in the process.

      This is the third time Hager has been proven to rush into print with obvious lies. By now he should be pauperised from the law suites but hey this is NZ and with the local judiciary he gets the obligatory snowflake’s slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket penalty.

      The Courts Martial plus the various civil court cases cost millions, ruined the careers of several great NZSAS troopers and did nothing except encourage the howling pack of leftist loons to even greater heights!

      I have heard one report about an ‘accident’ on a Russian sub in which several had been killed/injured.

      I don’t know why Pence would be involved in a shooting incident, if that’s what it was. The Pentagon would handle it w/Trump’s CoS and Bolton.

      Fire broke out on one of the Russian navy’s deep-sea research submersibles, and toxic fumes from the blaze killed 14 sailors aboard, Russia’s Defense Ministry said Tuesday, although it released few details about the disaster or the vessel involved.

      The Defense Ministry did not say how many sailors were aboard the vessel during Monday’s fire, whether there were any survivors or if it was submerged at the time. But Russian media reported it was the country’s most secret submersible, a nuclear-powered vessel designed for sensitive missions at great depths.

      Some Russian media said the vessel was an AS-12 nuclear-powered sub, however, there has been no official confirmation, BBC News reported. The vessel is now at Severomorsk, the main base of the Russian Northern Fleet.
