Paul Gauguin Huts under trees 1887
Seems a very dense painting.

Judge decides he and his court have authority over speech worldwide:
Not a power grab or anything, just pursuing power not enjoyed by ‘King’ Draco, of Draconian fame, a man perhaps appropriately like Robespierre, created by a mob democracy run amok: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_(lawgiver)
So I am subject to Brussels’ court. Nice! In that case, I must be a citizen of the EU and can ask to impeach and remove him, right? I can travel to Paris without a passport now, no?
…And you thought the jurisdiction over Assange was bad. You’re not Next: you’re already here.
“US forces have been in Syria illegally since 2016.”
Go U.N.! Doin’ that job maintaining order and making the world safe for diplomacy! Now that you’ve run out of other people’s money, why won’t anyone fund you?
“The Syrian government has repeatedly blasted the American military presence as a violation of its sovereignty.”
But no one will ever know as it has yet to be reported in North America. Just like the consequent human and organ trafficking. There was a guy who did, once, but he’s away on vacation in Belmarsh. It must be a vacation since he has not been convicted of any crime.
“Domestic Politics, Idlib Sway Timing Of Turkey’s Syrian Operation (AlM)”
I do wonder if they’re going the other way and preventing any Syrian from returning home in order to weaken them. Since Turkey was ISIS’ greatest ally for years, they’re not great neighbors. And now the media cares just SO MUCH about Syrian children! Oh the children, the children!
“Female Kurdish Politician Among 9 Civilians Killed By Pro-Turkey Forces (AFP)”
Just a matter of endless war and no withdrawl. How else are they going to get America to fight Iran down to the last Yankee? Anyway, NINE whole people? Oh noes! That’s a summer afternoon in Chicago, which they couldn’t give a s—t about. Although Cheeto has raised the Marines, I don’t see Chicago requesting them there and returning rule of law. And it has to be a woman, because men and women are perfectly equal, therefore when men die who cares but when women die: international news. That’s equality! I don’t care which one you pick but pick one or the other: my brain hurts when all things and no things are equal at the same time. You know what I’m going to say: #A—L—S, the state of being anti-rational, anti-reason.
“Army Deployed In Ecuador As Protests Descend Into Violence (G.)”
So easy. If “The Guardian” says it, it’s a lie. QED.
“extremist attacks in Northern Ireland and on the mainland, along with sectarian violence in cities such as Glasgow”
So the EU is saying they’re going to be funding violent separatists in Scotland and Ireland if the UK dares attempt to regain sovereignty. Gotcha. Good thing they don’t have an army, or Britain’s extra $6B, they might crush a small Mediterranean nation and dictate the Prime Ministers of Italy or something.
“Labour Will Stop No-Deal Brexit ‘Whatever It Takes’ – Starmer (G.)”
Wow, really? Because Labour constituents voted FOR Brexit and AGAINST your party. You better look around and make sure you’re still at the head of a parade. Since everyone that hates Brexit hates Corbyn more, not a good look.
“Boris Johnson must seek and accept an extension. That’s the law.”
Awwwww. Just like yesterday, they want to start following the law? I wholeheartedly approve. Starting with a certain referendum you held some years back. But the law only applies when I want it to, to WHOM I want it to. Every other day of the year, we ignore it like we ignore pedophilia going back to Heath and Saville, the Windrush expulsions, human trafficking, and rape gangs. They’re the little people: no law for you!
“They sure are trying their best. To do what? To goose markets higher.”
Objection your honor. This reporter is implying motive. Reason? “Oh no reason, just ‘cause.” You mean like just ‘cause DeutscheBank is $60Trillion in the hole for derivatives and has broken its CDS for being under $8, just ‘cause Morgan’s profits are crushed by being removed from price-fixing, just ‘cause Hong Kong banking center may cease to exist, just ‘cause the Euro may implode, just ‘cause the Pound may go with it, just ‘cause the President may be impeached? Are THOSE some reasons – just maybe – that banks would like to hoard cash and not lend it therefore creating a liquidity crunch? Really a “trust” crunch, the Fed’s only real JOB to cure? NOPE! It’s just ‘cause. Surprised he didn’t say it was Russia.
Listen: the U.S. has added nearly $1 Trillion a QUARTER. The Fed Repo has risen to $250B since 9-11 and is rising at $3B a DAY. Overnight interest rates have already been over 10%. This run rate may be the vertical hockey-stick blow off destruction of the fiat system. But this reporter says there’s nothing going on, no crisis here, just ‘cause.
“Aria That Cost Marie-Antoinette Her Head Is Sung Again At Versailles (AFP)”
Somebody who believes in magic is throwing a lot of symbolism around France, as with the Notre Dame. Maybe we should ask Frenchie LeGuarde for another public lecture on the magic number seven again. That was eye-opening and no mistake. Remember, it doesn’t matter if it’s TRUE, what matters is powerful people THINK it’s true. It runs their actions, not yours. So much as they are erasing Britain, they are erasing France in a different way. For the hate of ego knows no bounds.October 13, 2019 at 4:26 pm #50568christopher cobbParticipant
What’s with your fixation on the HK riots, don’t they get enough coverage in MSM? Oh oh, One was shot recently, escalation? Have you never seen this Gene Sharpe playbook? It’s called a color revolution, remember Maidan? The yellow vest have gone on for how many weeks now? Haitian riots, any MSM coverage? Lenin Moreno rolling for his life? Christ the US banned masked protesters in the nineteenth century. Free the paid underage protesters in HK who have been sold cheaply for a pack of lies!October 13, 2019 at 6:45 pm #50569PlanetaryCitizenParticipant
The notion that Putin would entertain leaving Sryia is ludicrous and laughable in the extreme and is quite simply a ploy to the unthinking that abandoning the Kurds won’t have serious credibility consequences for the U.S. It’s textbook political, tactical and strategic deception. Putin couldn’t want it more and Trump just gave it to him. By extension Trump likely keeps his investment stream in Turkey in tact.
Russia currently has two recent 49 year leases for it’s naval and air bases in Syria’s major Mediterranean port area in the heart of the Alawite state with major construction and expansion underway. It’s also investing in expansion of two of Syria’s major military bases.October 13, 2019 at 10:32 pm #50570John DayParticipant
I’ve lived through a few coups. They’re insane, random, and terrifying, like watching sports, except your political future depends on the score.
The kickoff begins when a key official decides to buck the executive. From that moment, government becomes a high-speed head-counting exercise. Who’s got the power plant, the airport, the police in the capital? How many department chiefs are answering their phones? Who’s writing tonight’s newscast?
When the KGB in 1991 tried to reassume control of the crumbling Soviet Union by placing Mikhail Gorbachev under arrest and attempting to seize Moscow, logistics ruled. Boris Yeltsin’s crew drove to the Russian White House in ordinary cars, beating KGB coup plotters who were trying to reach the seat of Russian government in armored vehicles. A key moment came when one of Yeltsin’s men, Alexander Rutskoi – who two years later would himself lead a coup against Yeltsin – prevailed upon a Major in a tank unit to defy KGB orders and turn on the “criminals.”
We have long been spared this madness in America. Our head-counting ceremony was Election Day. We did it once every four years.
That’s all over, in the Trump era.
On Thursday, news broke that two businessmen said to have “peddled supposedly explosive information about corruption involving Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden” were arrested at Dulles airport on “campaign finance violations.” The two figures are alleged to be bagmen bearing “dirt” on Democrats, solicited by Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman will be asked to give depositions to impeachment investigators. They’re reportedly going to refuse. Their lawyer John Dowd also says they will “refuse to appear before House Committees investigating President Donald Trump.” Fruman and Parnas meanwhile claim they had real derogatory information about Biden and other politicians, but “the U.S. government had shown little interest in receiving it through official channels.”
For Americans not familiar with the language of the Third World, that’s two contrasting denials of political legitimacy.
The men who are the proxies for Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani in this story are asserting that “official channels” have been corrupted. The forces backing impeachment, meanwhile, are telling us those same defendants are obstructing a lawful impeachment inquiry.
This latest incident, set against the impeachment mania and the reportedly “expanding” Russiagate investigation of U.S. Attorney John Durham, accelerates our timeline to chaos. We are speeding toward a situation when someone in one of these camps refuses to obey a major decree, arrest order, or court decision, at which point Americans will get to experience the joys of their political futures being decided by phone calls to generals and police chiefs.
My discomfort in the last few years, first with Russiagate and now with Ukrainegate and impeachment, stems from the belief that the people pushing hardest for Trump’s early removal are more dangerous than Trump. Many Americans don’t see this because they’re not used to waking up in a country where you’re not sure who the president will be by nightfall. They don’t understand that this predicament is worse than having a bad president.
The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House. Senior figures in the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies made an open break from their would-be boss before Trump’s inauguration, commencing a public war of leaks that has not stopped...
It was also a bold new foray into domestic politics by intelligence agencies that in recent decades began asserting all sorts of frightening new authority. They were kidnapping foreigners, assassinating by drone, conducting paramilitary operations without congressional notice, building an international archipelago of secret prisons, and engaging in mass warrantless surveillance of Americans. We found out in a court case just last week how extensive the illegal domestic surveillance has been, with the FBI engaging in tens of thousands of warrantless searches involving American emails and phone numbers under the guise of combating foreign subversion.
The agencies’ new trick is inserting themselves into domestic politics using leaks and media pressure. The “intel chiefs” meeting was just the first in a series of similar stories, many following the pattern in which a document was created, passed from department from department, and leaked...
I don’t believe most Americans have thought through what a successful campaign to oust Donald Trump would look like. Most casual news consumers can only think of it in terms of Mike Pence becoming president. The real problem would be the precedent of a de facto intelligence community veto over elections, using the lunatic spookworld brand of politics that has dominated the last three years of anti-Trump agitation.
Trump is cutting staff loyal to Bolton and neocons at the National Security Council.
But I thought the US was pulling soldiers out of the Mideast!
The Pentagon has increased the number of US forces in the Central Command (CENTCOM) area of operations by about 14,000 since May this year, as it continues to lock horns with Tehran. Not all of those went to Saudi Arabia, however, as CENTCOM’s area of operations covers the entire Middle East, including Afghanistan and Syria.
Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach revealed on Wednesday that former Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 from Burisma Group for lobbying activities, citing materials related to an investigation.
