Self Driving Roadkill


  Somebody drops an Apple laptop off at a computer place for repair, waterlogged, with a Beau Biden Foundation sticker on it. It gets fixed, but it's been forgotten. The shop owner eventually claims it, and looks at the hard drive before wiping it for resale. 
 He's struck by the porn of Hunter Biden doing crack with a prostitute, but looks at the emails, too. He gets scared for his well being, calls the FBI, and gives up the laptop to them. He waits, and waits and waits... 
  Nothing. He calls around to see what happened. No reply. 
Eventually he gets his copy of the hard drive to Rudy Giullianni, who really does want it, and eventually turns it over to the New York Post, who actually publishes the story and sends it out on Twitter, except Twitter censors it. 
  Twitter then tries to explain itself while still censoring the story.
  Joe and Donald Show will not go on tonight, but Joe and Donald each get a show of their own. 
This Hunter-Biden-Self-Roadkill story will feature on Donald's show, but maybe not Joe's show.
Remember, YOU are "what's for dinner" in this production of perceived-reality.

 After yesterday's cross-platform social media embargo on a New York Post exposé detailing explosive evidence against Joe and Hunter Biden, Twitter is at it again on Thursday - suspending the Trump campaign's official account for sharing a video accusing the former Vice President of being a "liar who has been ripping off the country for years."  
  According to emails obtained on a laptop reportedly abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop (which also contained photos of Hunter smoking crack and an alleged sex tape), Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Burisma - a Ukrainian energy giant paying Hunter upwards of $50,000 per month to sit on its board...

​  ​Yet, despite Dorsey's mea culpa, Twitter is at it again on Thursday, censoring the Post's second installment of 'Bidengate' - citing never-before-seen emails between Hunter Biden and various individuals connected to a major Chinese energy firm that failed earlier this year after its chairman - a party insider with deep ties to China's military - was "disappeared" by China's state security apparatus.

​NY Post Story
​  ​Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
​  ​The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.
​  ​“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
​  ​An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

RUSSIA Today has this story (hiding any clues to Russian Hacking, as usual.) Et tu, Facebook?
​  A former Democratic Party staffer now working for Facebook has admitted to shadowbanning a viral story allegedly exposing Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s Ukrainian ties and has encouraged “fact-checkers” to shred it.
  As a New York Post story claiming Biden scion Hunter had introduced his father to a Ukrainian energy executive less than a year before the then-Vice-President pressured Kiev into firing the country’s top prosecutor swept across social media on Wednesday morning, Facebook communications exec Andy Stone announced the social media behemoth was “reducing [the story’s] distribution on our platform.”
(Sleazy Russians...)​ ​ After the story had already made the rounds on social media, the Biden campaign weighed in to deny any meeting between Biden and Pozharskyi had taken place – though it notably did not comment on any of the more salacious aspects of the Post’s stories, including photos and videos appearing to show the candidate’s son smoking crack and having sex.

A federal judge on Oct. 8 ruled that a whistleblower complaint against the Clinton Foundation can proceed, saying that the IRS “abused its discretion” in attempting to dismiss allegations of wrongdoing by the nonprofit organization.  
“..Based on their research, Doyle and Moynihan believe the Clintons owe taxes on between $400 million and $2.5 billion..”

The US has failed to get QUAD partners: Australia, Japan and India to fight China at their own expense, so looks to NATO and Europe:
The U.S. also tried to incite its European NATO allies to take a stand against China:
​  ​NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg warned Saturday that China's increasing influence had created a "fundamental shift in the global balance of power" that should not be overlooked.
​  ​In an interview with Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper, that was released in advance, the Norwegian official said that Beijing had the second-largest defense budget in the world after the United States, and was investing heavily in nuclear weapons and long-range missiles that could reach Europe.
​ "One thing is clear: China is coming ever closer to Europe's doorstep," he said. "NATO allies must face this challenge together."
​  ​That initiative will sink in Europe just as fast as the Quad initiative has sunk in Asia and for the very same reasons. China is not an ideological or military danger to Europe. It is an economic behemoth and relation with it need to be carefully handled. They require respect and talks and not saber rattling.
​  ​China has overtaken the U.S. as the EU's biggest trading partner:
​  ​In the first seven months of 2020, China surpassed the United States to become the biggest trading partner of the European Union (EU), said Eurostat, the EU's statistics organisation.
...​  ​The EU's imports from China increased by 4.9 per cent year-on-year in the January-July period, noted Eurostat.
According to the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, the largest economy in the EU, China, Germany's biggest trading partner since 2016, surpassed the United States for the first time in the second quarter of this year to become Germany's largest export market, and Germany's exports to China in July have rebounded almost to last year's level.
​  ​It is time for the U.S. to look into a mirror and to awake to reality. It is highly indebted country with a way too expensive but ineffective military. Over the last decades its economic role in the world has continuously declined. The constant militant positions and 'do as we say' attitude has alienated its allies. Without allies the U.S. has no chance to defeat China in any potential conflict.
​  ​What the U.S. still could do is to honestly compete with China. But that would require humility, a strong industrial policy and a well paid and competitive work force.

​Eleni discovered this French story. France has skin in this game.
​  ​Turkish Intelligence Officer Feyyaz Ö., who was in charge of liaising with a US agency, spontaneously presented himself to the Austrian police on 15 September 2020. He revealed that he had received orders to eliminate three of that country’s political figures. .
​  ​With Austria having tipped off Germany about the ongoing investigation, it was discovered that the Turkish secret services (Millî İstihbarat Teşkilatı - MIT) operate a gigantic network in Europe, greater than that of the Russian, or even the US, services.
​  ​There are at least 350 Turkish agents located in Austria and 8,000 in Germany.
​  ​An investigation has reportedly been started in France where, contrary to widespread belief, Turkish mosques outnumber the totality of North African mosques. They are controlled by the Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı (directorate of religious affairs) via an extreme right-wing organization, the Millî Görüş (of which President Erdoğan was a leader).
​  ​The news comes as Turkey is overseeing the attack on Artsakh.
​ ​Thierry Meyssan had asserted that the MIT of Turkey, supported by the British MI6, had orchestrated the attacks in Paris and Saint-Denis on 13 November 2015, as well as those in Brussels on 22 March 2016.

Better not to risk any radical evolution that might fail, and so failure is thus assured.

A Single Large Dose of Vitamin D Could be Used as a Means of Coronavirus Disease 2019 Prevention and Treatment
 Here, we hypothesize that a single large dose of vitamin D (Vit D) could be an option for trial in COVID-19. Vit D deficiency or insufficiency is very common in the general population as well as in patients with COVID-19. It has been shown that low Vit D level is associated with viral infection, and Vit D supplementation is beneficial for people infected with viruses, such as HIV and hepatitis C virus. Although COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, the morbidity and mortality of this disease are driven by coagulopathy. Clinical studies have shown that Vit D can exert anticoagulant effects. Vit D, a lipid-soluble vitamin, can be administered as a draught. Vit D supplementation is safe and has rare toxic events. In addition, the cost of Vit D is fairly low. Based on these observations, we speculate that a single dose of 300,000 IU Vit D may have a role in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

  1. Votes are cast for Biden while I write, and I ponder if there is a reckoning day before the election, which might be a word spoken by Bar, or an actual arrest. Even a Hunter arrest would give many pause, but would I welcome it in the long term? No, it's gotta be Joe, and it's gotta to stick. Anything else might be bad precedent, in lieu of bad President. Choose your poison wisely.
    There's a good chance that a DNC winner will have Harris giving the inaugural speech, and given her background she may have an arrest warrant waiting at the end of her term. Nixon-Agnew would be impressed.
    This kind of entertainment is bad for everyone's health. But the internet is a kind of disinfectant, I still hope.

    p.s. it takes a great blog to even get me to read, awesome job!

    1. Thnks Kimo. I suspect we are heading deeper and deeper into some kind of non-binary mish-mosh mess of stinking swamp failure, and I'm just waiting for the $US to be demoted to what-can-I-buy-with-that-if-I-don't-need-"protection"?
      Strange days just beginning.
      Don't choose poison. It's not what we should eat for dinner.
      Grow your own dinner!
