[Bretigne Shaffer] So now we don’t have to listen to what those doctors said in front of the US Supreme Court, because it turns out that one of them has some whacky beliefs about sex with demons causing reproductive disorders. What a relief.
I’m not going to pretend that the things Dr. Stella Immanuel has said don’t sound just a little crazy to me. They do. But I’ve been observing this game long enough to have a pretty good idea of how this works:
Someone says something that contradicts the dominant narrative (in this case, the narrative about medical science), and the machine that supports that narrative goes into overdrive to discredit them, with whatever information they can dig up—as long as it doesn’t involve discussing the actual substance of what the person has said.
I understand that for some people, maybe even for a great many, that is the end of the conversation. So for everyone who is satisfied with the "fringe doctors promoting hydroxychloroquine also believe demon sex causes fybroids" narrative—please, stop here. Your ride is over, and you may go on believing that this group of doctors and other professionals has been thoroughly discredited by these statements.
For everyone else, if you are at all interested in why such a coordinated effort has been launched to silence and discredit this group, why—even before the sex demon stuff was uncovered—videos of the group’s press conference were quickly yanked from YouTube, and why their own website was taken down without warning by its host, SquareSpace, (their new website can now be found here) then please keep reading... ....

Translated from Russian. Appeared in regnum.ru Russia makes a mistake after a mistake
Russian authorities decided to work with Alexander Lukashenko because he definitely controls the situation in Belarus, but in the long run it is a mistake, said in a conversation with the correspondent of the IA REGNUM on Monday, August 10, political scientist Dmitry Bolkunets.
According to preliminary data from the Central Election Commission of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko gained about 80 % of votes in the elections of the President of Belarus. Vladimir Putin sent him a telegram, in which he said: he expects that Lukashenko's state activity will "further develop mutually beneficial relations in all areas", "deepening cooperation within the framework of the Union State", "increasing integration processes and military-political connections".
"Unfortunately, the Russian authorities do not notice important Belarusian trends. And in this political direction, one mistake after another.
But there is no news in this. Russia has always behaved like this.
One of the elements of the game in the post-Soviet space is to recognize authoritarian leaders, and then when something happens to them, hit the bells and shout about Maidan.
Lukashenko controls the situation in Belarus, and therefore decided to work with him. But Lukashenko spent his entire campaign in an anti-Russian way, and therefore Russia loses its face. Lukashenko becomes a triumphant. It turns out that he is allowed to provoke Russia, and then receive both financial and political support for it.
At the same time, the Russian authorities certainly know what the real situation in Belarus is, understand that civil resistance will not die, and do not nourish any illusions in this regard ", Dmitry Bolcunets said.
Their continent, their choice — for as long as the gods of the copybook headings let them keep it.
[Mises] After intense negotiations, long days and nights of clashes, and a distinctly sour note underlying the entire summit, European Union leaders finally agreed on an unprecedented €1.82 trillion ($2.1 trillion) budget and covid recovery package. This agreement provides €750 billion in funding meant to counter the impact of the pandemic and also includes €390 billion in nonrepayable grants to the hardest-hit EU members, with Italy and Spain being the main recipients.
The harsh negotiations brought to the surface once again the deep economic, structural, and cultural divide between north and south. This divide has been at the core of every serious political and economic crisis in the bloc so far, and its reemergence served as yet another reminder of how unnatural, forced, and unsustainable the integration vision of the Europhiles really is. Their wider strategic aims, much like this covid relief package itself, are nothing more than a massive redistribution of wealth and a vain effort to impose uniformity on a radically diverse group of national identities, economic profiles, and local political realities.
After the fact, they will all argue the "medical supplies" were worthless in combatting the panic anyway, so, no harm, no foul.

Whoever this article is isn't wrong. This is federalism by the back door. They can't do it legally, so they pull this crap.
You have to realize, the EU as an organization is in real danger. If Brexit is a success it's curtains for them. Tens of thousands of people will be jobless. Obviously this must never be allowed to happen. So they've got to act now or never.
Sure, it's going to be stupidly expensive to keep the EU together. Sure the other nations are going to waste the money and laugh. These are bribes, plain and simple. That's why Macron was banging the table. Bribe them and they'll stop agitating to leave.
It's Kurt. Don't get cocky
[Townhall] Remember how Donald Trump was totally doomed just a couple weeks ago? Grandpa Badfinger was ridin' high down in his basement and the GOP was going to be destroyed in November. All the smart people of smartness who make up liberal blue check Twitter tweeted it so it had to be true.
I want to see lots of sad faces on teevee Tuesday night in November. I want to see Larry Sabato chew his scraggly mustache half off...

watching the Trump news briefing this afternoon I was pretty shocked that there weren't many snarley questions.
This may be an indicator as well.
Just surprised & hopeful, not trying to get cocky
But it was probably just a fluke
[BeSaCenter] EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: On August 4, 2020, a massive explosion occurred at a warehouse on the waterfront of the Port of Beirut, Leb ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers... . It killed at least 135 people, maimed at least 5,000,
...as of yesterday: 158 dead, 6000 injured with approximately 100 at death’s door, missing dropped to 21 from 60...
left approximately 300,000 people homeless, and devastated the port region of the city, causing damages estimated between $10 billion and $15 billion. The Lebanese authorities are blaming the earth-shattering kaboom on mismanagement by port officials, but there is reason to suspect that it was the result of Hezbollah negligence.
