FBI Agents Spill Beans on Comey & McCabe-Era Threats Against the President: "Trump and Friends Better Watch Their F*cking L..." – True PunditTrue Pundit
Flynn was ultimately indicted at McCabe’s request and now we know the FBI — at the time — was spying on both Flynn and Trump. For months.

Now comes details of a subsequent FBI meeting where McCabe threatened Trump and other White House officials.

“Trump and his friends better watch their fucking little asses,” McCabe rhetorically warned, according to well-placed FBI sources during a subsequent meeting of top FBI brass.

Many agreed.

McCabe, who had declared war previously on Trump and Flynn, had expanded the FBI’s hit list to include any and all of Trump’s friends, sources said.

Looking for Life on a Flat Earth
Alan Burdick's fascinating profile of "the mother of all conspiracies," in the New Yorker: "The flat Earth was perhaps a scam, an emotional salve with no basis in physical reality. Now it has become both real and surreal, like a performance-art piece in which nobody can tell the actors, stagehands, and audience apart."

Looking for Life on a Flat Earth | The New Yorker
What a burgeoning movement says about science, solace, and how a theory becomes truth.
On the last Sunday afternoon in March, Mike Hughes, a sixty-two-year-old limousine driver from Apple Valley, California, successfully launched himself above the Mojave Desert in a homemade steam-powered rocket. He’d been trying for years, in one way or another. In 2002, Hughes set a Guinness World Record for the longest ramp jump—a hundred and three feet—in a limo, a stretch Lincoln Town Car. In 2014, he allegedly flew thirteen hundred and seventy-four feet in a garage-built rocket and was injured when it crashed. He planned to try again in 2016, but his Kickstarter campaign, which aimed to raise a hundred and fifty thousand dollars, netted just two supporters and three hundred and ten dollars. Further attempts were scrubbed—mechanical problems, logistical hurdles, hassles from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. Finally, a couple of months ago, he made good. Stuff was leaking, bolts needed tightening, but at around three o’clock, and with no countdown, Hughes blasted off from a portable ramp—attached to a motorhome he’d bought through Craigslist—soared to nearly nineteen hundred feet, and, after a minute or so, parachuted less than gently back to Earth.

Have you ever heard of the Jewish woman who appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show to expose the Satanic Ritual Murder perpetrated by a subsect of the Ashkenazi community? It caused quite an uproar and almost cost Oprah her career. The woman, Vicki Poll, went
This is a map of Jewish expulsions beginning in 1100 AD -- https://i.imgur.com/HqPfUNF.png -- and I have found that by tracing the origin of vampire/revenant mythology across Eastern Europe beginning in 1100 AD onwards, there is a direct correlation between the creation of said mythology and the forced migration of Ashkenazi Jews, such that these myths and folk tales arise within only a few decades of their arrival in whichever area they came to settle. It is said that you can stop a vampire by dropping a coin while you run; Elizabeth Bathory (Bar-Tolmay) was a Hungarian Jew; Vlad the Impaler is a direct descendant of the Rothschilds and they even say as much in modern interviews; Porphyria, a typically Ashkenazi genetic disease, has been historically treated by drinking blood; Israel spends $35 billion each year on the import of human blood (more than many nations spend on their entire military). I know that that is a lot, and it certainly raises alarm bells to hear a person say "Ashkenazi are vampires", but that's not really what I am saying. I do not believe vampires as would be defined by the average person are Ashkenazi, but merely that the origin of all of these admittedly incorrect and folkloric interpretations of vampirism seem to have as their origin the history of JRM/S nearly exclusively.

Flat-Earthers Have a Wild New Theory About Forests - The Atlantic
Against both the panpsychicism of hippie ecology, the bleary-eyed invocations of some dismally all-encompassing Mother Earth, and the pedantic materialism of most sciences as they’re actually practiced, ‘No Forests on Flat Earth’ proposes a kind of hylothanatism, a pessimism for our own weary age: this world was once alive, everything was once beautifully connected, but not any more. This earth has been dead for millennia; what we think of as progress is just the rot spreading through the cadaver of the world.

The Pivot | Charlie's Diary
Meanwhile in Britain. Charlie recaps everything nicely.

(I hadn't seen the news about Dacre, good riddance, but the other day I did have to blink and check what reality I was in when I saw an oddly anti-Brexit headline on the Daily Fail.)

When conspiracy theories become weaponized | The Outline
How a rage-fueled fever dream named QAnon took over the internet.
For a brief, unsettling moment this past weekend, one of the internet’s nastiest conspiracies bubbled to the surface. Like most terrible things, it began with a tweet: "President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world,” wrote actress Roseanne Barr late Friday evening. “Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere. notice that. I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now"
The cryptic (not to mention completely inaccurate) tweet was followed by a series of retweets and replies that all referenced Trump’s (non-existent, mind you) fight against pedophilia and child trafficking. Despite the fact that nearly all of the most glaringly unhinged tweets were purged from Barr’s account by Monday, they still sent the media into a bonafide frenzy.

Who is QAnon? The Storm Conspiracy, Explained
A new conspiracy theory called “The Storm” has taken the grimiest parts of the internet by, well, storm. Like Pizzagate, the Storm conspiracy features secret cabals, a child sex-trafficking ring led (in part) by the satanic Democratic Party, and of course, countless logical leaps and paranoid assumptions that fail to hold up under the slightest fact-based scrutiny. However, unlike Pizzagate, the Storm isn’t focused on a single block of shops in D.C., or John Podesta’s emails. It’s much, much bigger than that.
As most terrible things do, this story begins with a post on /pol/, a sub-board of the more-or-less-anonymous, anything-goes website 4chan. Over the last few years, /pol/ — which technically stands for “politically incorrect” — has slowly but surely become a top contender for the ever-coveted title of the most upsetting community online. It’s the sort of place where neo-Nazis and people who believe women shouldn’t have basic human rights used to meet before we started verifying them on Twitter and electing them to public office. And as of late, it’s expanded its ranks to include fringe members of all shapes and sizes.
